Victor: You just have to be patient, lily. All will be revealed in due time.

[ Lily chuckling ]

Lily: Well, that’s not really comforting, given the circumstances.

Victor: Are you forgetting that I was once an anonymous investor?

Lily: No, I know, but jill knew who you were and devon and I trusted jill.

Victor: Well, in this case, you just have to trust me.

Devon: Thank you.

Jack: Would you please get us a table?

Diane: What are you going to do?

Jack: I am going to talk to billy.

Diane: Maybe this isn’t the time or the place.

Jack: I’m not going to make a scene.

Diane: Good. Good, but tread lightly. Billy seems to have a short fuse these days.

Jack: Yeah. Maybe that’s the problem now. He doesn’t think anything through. He just reacts. I don’t know what he’s thinking these days.

Billy: There’s so much change and so many emotional things that happened to her.

Kyle: Hello, stranger.

Audra: Kyle.

Kyle: I missed you.

Audra: We were just at a staff meeting an hour ago.

Kyle: That was work. You seem to be avoiding me lately outside of work. Have you changed your mind about our after-hours fling?

Nikki: Now, just to get this out of the way, I know about your affair, or whatever you’re calling it, with audra charles. I’m sure it’s a fun, easy way to deflect from the pain that you’re feeling going through your breakup and avoid the pain that summer is feeling because of you. You know how protective I am of my granddaughter.

Kyle: Of course, nikki. You know I’ve always admired that about you.

Nikki: Well, then you won’t be surprised to hear that I told audra if she wanted to continue working at newman media, she would have to end the affair immediately.

Kyle: And for the record, it worked. We’re over.

Audra: No, I’ve just been swamped with worked, that’s all. I mean, you’ve seen how crazy it’s been in newman media these last few weeks. There’s no reason to take it personally.

Kyle: I’m not. I just miss our time together.

Audra: Well, be patient. We’ll figure this out.

Nikki: Well, well, well. The two of you seem awfully close. Tell me, were you discussing business or something a little more intimate?

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Audra: Uh, of course, we were discussing business, nikki. Kyle was saying something I couldn’t quite catch, so I moved in a little closer so I could listen.

Nikki: Is that so?

Audra: Yes.

Nikki: And what exactly was this business you were discussing?

Audra: Kyle was bringing me up to speed on several of the new sites we were looking to acquire before you took over. We were going over the pitch to make sure we were on the same page.

Kyle: I was worried you wouldn’t be as enthusiastic about it as I was, so audra was easing my mind.

Nikki: I see. Kyle, could you excuse us for a moment? Audra and I have some other business to discuss privately, if you don’t mind.

Lily: I just have one last question for you.

Victor: All right, if you like.

Lily: Did this person approach you or did you approach them?

Victor: They approached me.

Lily: And would I know this person? Come on, I mean, you can at least tell me that, can’t you?

Victor: No, I can’T.

Lily: Okay.

Victoria: Am i interrupting something?

Victor: No, sweetheart. Not at all. Lily was just on her way out.

Lily: Well, thank you for your time, victor.

Victor: Thank you.

Victoria: What was that all about?

Victor: Nothing that concerns you, my darling.

Victoria: If it has to do with the company, it’s probably something I should know.

Victor: It doesn’t concern newman enterprises either.

Victoria: All right then. I suppose I’ll add it to the ongoing mystery.

Victor: Mm-hmm. If you must know, I own some interest in chancellor-winters.

Victoria: You’re just full of surprises lately, aren’t you?

Victor: Mm-hmm. And I just sold that piece of the company. But let’s not discuss it now, okay? Sweetheart, that is so damn good. Look at the poise and the grace and the presence. My god. I love it. Don’t you?

Victoria: Oh, well, you know. It’s taking some getting used to, looking at my face all day, but it just reminds me to keep focused on getting the job done.

Victor: I think it’s beautiful.

Victoria: Mom was worried that you wouldn’t be that enthusiastic about it.

Victor: Why would she worry about that? This is a fitting symbol of your new position, sweetheart. You’re running this company. It’s in your capable hands now and you’re bringing it to the future. Bright, prosperous future.

Victoria: I see that you’ve replaced my portrait with your own.

Victor: Your office has walls, doesn’t it?

Victoria: That’s not the point, dad. It’s the gesture. It’s the symbolism of all of it, which further leads me to believe that this wasn’t a mere business decision on your part. That there was a personal and punishing element to you replacing me at the head of the company, and for the life of me, I cannot figure out what I did to deserve that.

Diane: What is it you’re worried about?

Jack: He could be alerting devon that we’re going after tucker, after I expressly told him that is a bad idea and he agreed.

Diane: Well, hopefully, that’s not what they’re discussing.

Jack: Well, I seriously doubt that. Look, I don’t doubt that he is protective of jabot and the family and he thinks he’s doing the right thing, but tucker mccall is a big problem and he is up to something and we have to figure out what it is. We can’t do that when we’re showing all our cards.

Devon: Hello, jack.

Jack: Could I have a moment alone with my brother, please?

Billy: We’re in the middle of a conversation, jack.

Devon: No, actually, I think we’re fine. We’ve covered everything, billy. I need to get going anyway.

Billy: Okay, well, just remember what I said, okay? Keep your eyes open, take care of your family. Something big is about to happen with tucker, I can feel it.

Devon: I appreciate the heads up.

Billy: Okay.

Devon: Good to see you, jack.

Jack: You too. What the hell are you doing? Why are you going behind my back on this? Relapsing ms isn’t the only thing I have going on.

Billy: I never agreed to not alert devon about tucker. That was your thinking, not mine.

Jack: Not how I remembered it.

Billy: Of course, it isn’t ’cause you don’t listen to me, jack.

Jack: As I recall, you understood why I didn’t want to use devon to get at tucker. We have no business creating conflict between devon and his father.

Billy: I did not lie to devon, okay? I told him the truth and if that creates distance between the two of them, well maybe, that puts pressure on tucker, which was the plan from the get go. I made the right decision.

Jack: How much did you tell him?

Billy: I told him what ashley told you. Tucker lost his head in paris and that he lashed out because she didn’t want to follow through with the business plan.

Jack: And what was his response?

Billy: He was concerned.

Jack: Concerned?

Billy: Yeah. He was a little rattled.

Jack: He didn’t seem rattled just now. He thanked you for the information and left. If anything, he was trying to get away from you.

Billy: Well, I think it got to him, but, you know, he’s gonna give tucker the benefit of the doubt.

Jack: Ah, damn it, billy.

Billy: I planted a seed, jack. I reminded devon who his father is and what he is capable of. I’m not gonna apologize for that.

Victor: Look, the changes I’ve made were no way a reflection of what I thought of your work. I thought you did a wonderful job. In fact, I’m gonna lean on you as we move forward.

Victoria: That sounds like a press release of someone that you just recently demoted.

Victor: If you will.

Victoria: Am I wrong?

Victor: Don’t you see what’s going on? This is not about you. This is about this company. It has become disjointed, fractured, broken.

Victoria: Did I do that?

Victor: You certainly contributed to it.

Victoria: Dad, that is so unfair.

Victor: Really? I think the results speak for themselves.

[ Victoria sighing ]

Victoria: Well, here’s another thought.

Victor: What?

Victoria: You took charge because you can’t stand not being in control and I was set up to fail. I blame myself for not seeing this coming from the start.

Victor: I’m sad to say you don’t see a lot of things.

Victoria: Well, then please, daddy, please. Enlighten me, because I’m– I’m always here to learn.

Victor: When I handed over the company to you and your brothers, I was hoping that you would create a united front, a united powerhouse. That didn’t happen, did it? Now, I have to step in and clean things up! Run the damn company again! Otherwise, you and your brother would be at each other’s throat! And nicholas would leave the company once again!

Victoria: He’s already done that, dad. And it’s all your fault, not mine. Not even adam’S. It’s all on you!

Lily: Thank you for coming.

Devon: Yeah, for sure. How did things go with victor?

Lily: Uh, they went nowhere.

Devon: Why? He wouldn’t meet with you?

Lily: No, he met with me, but he clearly was enjoying not telling me who this mystery person is.

Devon: God. What difference would it make to him?

Lily: I don’t know. He said he made a deal to not reveal their identity.

Devon: I wonder if he’s playing games with us?

Lily: Well, whatever it is, I don’t like this game. It makes me nervous and it makes me feel like we’re not gonna like whoever this person is to do business with them.

Devon: Do you have any guesses of who it is?

Lily: I mean, he did say that this person approached him, not the other way around, which makes me feel like they clearly have a personal interest in owning a piece of chancellor-winters.

Devon: You must have somebody in mind. Who is it?

Lily: I think it’s tucker. My name is caron and I’m from brooklyn. I am in love with mixtiles. You just pull the adhesive off the back and stick it to any surface, and there’s no damage to your walls. Go to mixtiles.Com and pick sizing, filters and it really makes it fit the decor of your home. Order now and get up to 50% off. Lean cuisine.

Devon: So, what makes you think it’s tucker?

Lily: Just a hunch.

Devon: What’s led you to this hunch?

Lily: Uh, knowing who he is and how he operates, and when he’s angry, he wants to burn bridges and right now, he’s very angry.

Devon: Okay. All right. Fair enough. How would this be a danger to the company since it’s such a small investment? It’s nowhere near controlling.

Lily: It could be his way to get his foot in the door and if he’s back to his original plan of targeting jabot, maybe he’s back to all of his plans.

Devon: I really don’t believe that he would go behind my back for a second time.

Lily: Look, I– I know that you’re trying to rebuild your relationship with him. I know that.

Devon: Yeah, and it’s– it’s– it’s going well and he seemed genuinely concerned that this whole thing with ashley was going to ruin the progress we’ve been making, so I don’t see it.

Lily: Okay. Look, I hope I’m wrong, I do, but I’m not as inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt as you are.

Devon: I understand that. I do. Neither is billy.

Lily: What do you mean?

Devon: We just had an odd conversation before I got here.

Lily: Odd in what way?

Devon: He’s just being billy. Letting off steam, I think.

Lily: About what?

Devon: It’s–

Lily: What did he say?

Devon: He and jack think the same thing you do. They think that tucker is now more dangerous than ever.

Jack: Would you listen to me just this once? Just because the seed is planted does not mean anything is going to grow. Right now, for all we know, devon is on his way to tucker to let him know the abbott brothers are after him.

Billy: You know what I would say to that? Good.

Jack: That would be your response, wouldn’t it?

Billy: Tucker already knows we’re on high alert. If he hears it from devon, maybe it rattles tucker’s cage a little bit. Maybe shows devon his hand.

Jack: And you’re just fine with dropping devon and probably abby in the middle of this mess?

Billy: Actually, I think they should know what’s going on with tucker.

Jack: This is our fight, billy, not theirs. God, I regret even considering the possibility of using devon to get at tucker.

Billy: That’s because you still think we’re using or manipulating devon, which isn’t happening.

Jack: Wait, how are we not?

Billy: I’m opening up his eyes, I’m reminding him of tucker’s true nature. I see no downside there.

Jack: No, you never do.

[ Kyle exhaling ]

Kyle: Oof. Business casual takes on a whole new meaning.

Audra: Well, you know, I thought you could see the earrings better this way. You know, no distractions. I think we’re gonna make a great team.

Kyle: Oh, I’m counting on it.

Audra: So this, tonight? This is?

Kyle: A celebration.

Audra: Mm.

Kyle: My new job, our new collaboration.

Audra: Mm, I like that. Let’s celebrate. You, mr. Abbott, are a genius.

Kyle: Oh, yes. But let’s not talk it to death. I will always have your back. Count on me. I have no doubt we could pull it off.

Audra: Yeah?

Kyle: But why risk it? You have too much to lose.

Audra: Well, not if no one ever knows. And also, why does nikki get to decide who we can and cannot be with? Like…

Kyle: When we know exactly what we want.

Audra: Exactly. We just have to be very discreet.

Kyle: Absolutely.

Audra: And you know, I– I just, I don’t want to lose this.

Kyle: All work and no play? I mean, oof.

Audra: Can you imagine?

Kyle: Mm-mm.

Audra: The prospect would make me way too cruel.

Kyle: Mm-hmm.

Audra: Plus, knowing that we’re playing with fire every time we’re sneaking around to see each other, that sounds pretty exciting, doesn’t it?

Kyle: You love the danger. Are you really having that much fun with me?

Audra: Eh. I’m just kidding. I just, you know, I certainly don’t want to waste my time not enjoying myself.

Kyle: Well, there is one more concern. Even if we convince nikki that we’ve stopped seeing each other, there’s no guarantee she won’t keep me at the company.

Audra: Let me take care of that. Look, obviously, I’d love nothing more than to spend some quality time with you, but I– I have some calls that I have to make before the meeting. And, um, since our connection is supposed to be a secret, we should probably move on from my suite as a meeting place anyway.

Kyle: I guess that’s true.

Audra: Great. Um, I’ll see you at the office.

Kyle: Um, I was actually gonna get a quick workout. Not the one I was hoping for, unfortunately. Then I’ll head back to the office.

Audra: Okay, um, I’ll– I’ll see you there.

Nikki: So, you and kyle.

Audra: I told you, nikki, it was strictly a business discussion.

Nikki: I heard what you told me and I’m telling you, I think it is problematic for the two of you to have any interaction at all.

Audra: May I ask why?

Nikki: Because the attraction is still there, at least on his part.

Audra: Yeah, well, I’m not gonna deny that. Yes, it is still there. It’s always been there. But you’ve made your position clear on this and I respect you too much to break any rules.

Nikki: And i appreciate that. But I’m not sure that kyle can show the same restraint.

Audra: Look, I told him and he heard me loud and clear.

Nikki: Perhaps. But I get the sense that kyle has a bit of a wild streak in him, not unlike his father when jack was younger. The breakup of his marriage to summer seems to have brought this on. I mean, that is probably why he was drawn to you in the first place.

Audra: So, what are you saying?

Nikki: I’m saying that I think it’s best, moving forward, that we let kyle go from newman media. Isn’t it absolutely bonkers deliciously flavored at the turn of a dial, with zero sugar and zero calories. And cirkul has over 40 flavors, so your water can be as unique as you are. Try cirkul.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Audra: You want me to fire kyle?

Nikki: I believe that’s the best move for everyone involved.

Audra: With all due respect, mrs. Newman, um, I think you’re overreacting. Kyle isn’t gonna be a problem. I can assure you of that.

Nikki: Well, I am also concerned about you.

Audra: Me?

Nikki: Oh, come on. I know the two of you are carrying on in secret, even though I told you I wanted the relationship to end.

Audra: It has ended.

Nikki: No, it hasn’T. I can see it in his eyes when he looks at you. And before you try to deny it one more time, you should know that you are on very thin ice yourself. I was going to fire both of you, but I’ve decided to remove the temptation and give you one last chance. But trust me, this is your final warning. Do you understand?

Audra: Yes, I understand.

Nikki: Good. I will leave you to notifying kyle of his termination. And I suggest doing it sooner rather than later.

Lily: See? I’m not crazy. I’m not the only one who’s worried about tucker.

Devon: It’s not the same though ’cause jack is upset about the situation with tucker and ashley. Billy is just shooting from the hip. He doesn’t know if anything’s going on.

Lily: Okay, what did he say exactly?

Devon: He said I need to keep my eyes open ’cause he thinks that tucker is up to something.

Lily: Anything specific?

Devon: No. Nothing at all. That’s my point. It just felt like he was trying to recruit me in case something happened.

Lily: Okay, so what did you say?

Devon: I mean, I just sat there and listened. And I said, “thanks for the heads up.” Then, jack walked over and things got weird ’cause it felt like him and billy were upset about something. But neither one of them said anything about victor or chancellor-winters or anything that involved us.

Lily: Well, look, I mean, tucker knows how to fight wars on several fronts.

Devon: Yeah, but as true as that may be, we still don’t have any proof that he is the mystery investor who bought victor’s share.

Lily: Then, why would victor do this to us? Why would he do it to jill?

Devon: I have no idea. I really don’T. But I don’t think tucker would be stupid enough to try another sneak attack, knowing that it would ruin our relationship and his relationship with his grandson if I found out.

Lily: I don’t know, devon. I mean, whatever that’s happening right now, we have to figure it out. I don’t like mysteries and the fact that this person wants to remain anonymous? There’s a reason for that and I don’t think it’s going to benefit us.

Devon: Well, we don’t know that for sure. We don’t know if it’s a good thing or a bad thing and I think you’re jumping to a lot of unwarranted conclusions on several fronts.

Lily: Look, I know this is complicated for you, okay? I know that you’re worried about abby. I know you want tucker to be a real father. I get it. And you could be right. It– it may not be him. I’m just saying don’t underestimate what he’s capable of, okay?

Victor: You’re blaming me for this company’s dysfunction?

Victoria: You decide you’re gonna just shuffle the deck chairs and everyone else has to scramble around to figure out where they fit in in your grand scheme.

Victor: I explained to all three of you what I expected of you.

Victoria: By dictating your plans. Then, you just expect everyone to fall in line.

Victor: You damn well know. You more than anyone else should know a company of this size is not run by consensus. It’s run by one person. And that person is me from now on.

Victoria: Then why even bother to keep me around? Or nicholas, for that matter?

Victor: I don’t want to argue about this. It’s how it is, period!

Victoria: Not in my opinion.

Victor: Your opinion is irrelevant.

Victoria: Oh, thank you, daddy. You just proved my point.

Victor: Newman enterprises is bigger than you or your damn feelings! You either accept this or you can leave.

Victoria: I disagree with you and you just want to throw me out of your kingdom.

Victor: That’s your choice.

Victoria: You know what, dad? If I left, everything would fall apart. Everything.

Victor: What the hell do you mean by that? What do you mean by that? -Fixed. -That’s my son.

Nikki: What is going on in here? I can hear you all the way down the hall.

Victor: Our daughter’s insinuating I’m no longer capable of running my company.

Victoria: That’s not true. I was just questioning some of dad’s decisions.

Victor: It’s one and the same.

Victoria: Well, what is it then? We’re not allowed to challenge you anymore?

Victor: I will not tolerate insubordination.

Nikki: All right. Why don’t we all take a break, calm down before somebody says something they will regret.

Victor: I’ve said all I have to say.

Nikki: It’s premature to talk about the changes anyway because they won’t go into effect for another few weeks, and your father and I are planning a trip together before I move over to newman media and he takes the reins again here. So, there will be plenty of time to sort everything out to everyone’s satisfaction.

Victoria: That works for me.

Victor: That doesn’t work for me.

Nikki: What do you mean?

Victor: What I mean is that changes in both companies have to be finalized immediately.

Nikki: Well, that’s not what we talked about.

Victor: I don’t give a damn! It’s my decision! That’s what will happen!

Kyle: That took a while. Nikki must have had a lot to talk about. Care to clue me in?

Audra: She knows, kyle.

Kyle: About us? How is that possible? We’ve been so careful.

Audra: Well, not careful enough for nikki to trust us. More specifically, to trust you. When she saw us earlier together, she put two and two together and figured out that we’ve been seeing each other, in spite of her telling us not to. And– and she believes that as long as we keep working together, this attraction and desire won’t go away. At least, not on your part.

Kyle: Okay, how could she tell this, exactly?

Audra: She said she could see it in your eyes.

Kyle: Come on. Really?

Audra: I’m just telling you what she told me.

Kyle: Well, I’m not gonna deny I’m attracted to you and I have the desire to kiss you every time I’m around you–

Audra: Kyle, just– no. Just please.

Kyle: Why are you acting this way?

Audra: Because we can’t keep doing this. Just– haven’t you been listening?

Kyle: Okay, okay. I get it. I’ll keep my business face on when we’re at the office and we’ll be more careful when we’re in public.

Audra: It’s too late for that.

Kyle: What do you mean it’s too late? I’ll calm nikki down.

Audra: She told me to fire you, kyle.

Kyle: What?

Audra: Look, I– I tried to change her mind, I fought for you, but her mind was already made up.

Kyle: Because of a look in my eye? Are you kidding me?

Audra: It doesn’t matter why, okay? I just– it’s over. On all counts. Okay? I’M… I’m sorry.

Billy: You still don’t trust me, do you.

Jack: Oh, come on, billy.

Billy: No, that’s what this is about, jack. It’s always been about that. You don’t think I can handle myself without your guidance.

Jack: And you can’t be criticized because you take everything I say so personally.

Billy: Because it’s always personal, jack, and very seldom complimentary.

Jack: And that’s why you jump down my throat every time I disagree with you.

Diane: All right, gentlemen, please. This is not the place for this fight.

Billy: You should tell your new husband that.

Diane: Billy.

Billy: You know what? Forget it. Don’t worry about it ’cause he’s not gonna change anyway.

[ Jack sighing ] I’m kareem abdul jabbar.

Lily: You’re not mad at me, are you?

Devon: No, I’m not mad.

Lily: Okay, good. Because I love you and we’re on the same team, right?

Devon: Of course. Of course, we are and I love you too. I just don’t think that tucker is our guy, okay? I mean, even if he is, he would have no say in what happens in our company because he’s just buying an investment.

Lily: I really wish I had your confidence.

Devon: Am I wrong about that?

Lily: I don’t know. I just know that I don’t like surprises and neither does jill and we have to get to the bottom of this. And I’m sorry, but my money is still on tucker.

Victoria: Can you believe him?

Nikki: He was angry and lashing out. I’ll talk to him and try to calm things down.

Victoria: Well, good luck.

Nikki: You know, it doesn’t help that you keep pushing his buttons.

Victoria: All I did was question how he arbitrarily upends the lives of people that he supposedly cares for.

Nikki: Victoria, you know your father loves you. Don’t ever question that.

Victoria: Yes, mom. He particularly loves us when we’re obedient to him and falling in line with whatever he wants. Not so much loving when we cross him, like I did just now. Did you get here in time to hear him invite me to leave the company?

Nikki: He didn’t mean that.

Victoria: Oh, I’m not so sure. He keeps changing the rules, mom, and it’s only gonna get worse. What is it gonna take for you to agree that we are headed in the wrong direction? Not just for the family, but also for the company. How long can you ignore what is happening to him?

Kyle: Thank you. Here’s to being unemployed. Again.

Victor: Hello, kyle.

Kyle: Hey.

Victor: May I?

Kyle: Of course. Have a seat.

Victor: That sounds a pretty strong drink for the middle of a day.

Kyle: Oh, haven’t you heard? Nikki forced audra to fire me because she didn’t like the look in my eye.

Victor: Really? Huh. And you don’t think that is your fault?

Kyle: Well… this rounds out a perfect morning for me. Can I buy you a drink?

Victor: No, thank you.

Kyle: Then, tell me how exactly this is my fault.

Victor: Kyle, I hate to… to tell you this, but you are an abbott. You don’t belong at newman. You never have and never will. You belong with your family and your family’s business.

Diane: Jack, you need to calm down.

Jack: I am trying.

Diane: Well, maybe there wasn’t any damage done. Devon probably just thought that billy was venting about tucker.

Jack: Yeah, I seriously doubt that. Besides, that isn’t the point. I don’t know if I can trust him anymore after this. He always thinks he’s right, he doesn’t listen and it always ends in chaos.

Diane: So, what are you gonna do?

Jack: I don’t know. Right now, I am leaning towards cutting the cord and letting him go.

[ Jack exhaling ]

Billy: Can I get a single malt neat please? You can make that a double.

[ Billy exhaling ] Thank you.

Jack: Hey, I have a long track record in business and maybe you’ve heard about it. There’s not a corporate boardroom situation that I have not faced. I would like to be there to help you, if you could use some help.

Billy: Right. Of course, jack,; cause where the hell would I be without the wise, wise words of mr. Jack abbott.

Jack: It’s this endless effort to find a safe place to land about unresolved issues?

Billy: What are you– what are you talking about? Unresolved issues with what? With you? With dad? With mom?

Jack: I don’t know. It could be any of those.

Billy: You’re reaching, okay? You know what? Maybe it’s you with the unresolved issues. Maybe you’re questioning me in the corporate world because you’re scared I’m gonna outshine you.

Jack: I trust you. I know I can count on you.

Billy: Your instinct is–

Jack: You have proven time and again–

Billy: It’s your instinct. You fully believe that I’m just gonna fall right back where I came from. That’s not surprising whatsoever because you don’t trust me and you never have.

e[ Strumming guitar ] Psst! You talking to me? Yeah. Just making sure that the coast is clear. No granny sightings? Tracy? No, no, she’s not here. If I’m playing my guitar, you can rest assured that tracy is nowhere in the vicinity. She’s having a hard time wrapping her head around the fact that I’m eddie, not ned. She gave me an earful yesterday about the evils of the music industry, so…

[ Chuckles ] I bet she did. Yeah. I hope you didn’t listen to her. Oh, no, not even close. I actually have an important meeting today that, if all goes well, you will be looking at a successful music manager. Oh. “My beautiful date”? Marshall’s right about one thing. But do you think this is a date? Well…

[ Chuckles ] If it gets us free drinks, I don’t see why not.

[ Knock on door ] Ah. Hi, anna. Hi. Um, I’m so sorry to interrupt. Oh, not at all. Not at all. I was just waking up from a [Chuckles] Late night at the savoy. What brings you by this morning? Well, I was, um, wondering whether i would be allowed to look at the security footage from the corridor outside the suite where we were staying. Why do you want to look at the security footage? Why? Because of the break-in. What break-in? She’s still sleeping. Oh, good. How was she after I left last night? She was fine. She just stayed in her room after you left. Good. Thank you, by the way. Yeah, of course. I love charlotte. She is welcome here anytime. You know that. I know. I-I just didn’t give you much of a heads-up, and I appreciate it. Gave me a chance to make some arrangements, though. Arrangements for what? I mean, valentin, what are you gonna do about charlotte targeting anna? Yes, I’ll accept the charges. Drew: Carly.

Hey, good morning. Aw, it is now that I hear your voice. Are you staying safe? Doing my best. I miss you. Believe me, I miss you, too. How’s it going? Do you have any news or information for me to give to sonny? Not yet. I am, uh… I’m still working on it. Good morning. Ah! The delightful ms. Miller. Robert, flattery will get you everywhere. Hmm. I see you’ve come out for work. Well, you said this was a working breakfast. I did. Uh, please, sit. Yep. So what case are we working on? Well, I may have found a way to help drew, and I get to see you at the same time. Well, either way, you have my attention. Hub. Tenth floor. L-let me transfer you to the icu. Willow! It’s so good to see you. I’ve thought about this day a lot, especially during my treatments. I used to watch the nurses, picture myself working alongside them again, and now I finally am. Yes, you are, and everyone on staff couldn’t be happier to have you back working with us. We really missed you. Thank you, deanna. I missed all of you.

[ Telephone rings ] Your first call back. You want to take that? Absolutely. Tenth floor nurses’ station.

[ Cellphone rings ] Hey.

Where are you with the subpoenas? I’m working on getting gladys’ bank records. Hopefully soon. Okay, well, what about the toxicology report? That subpoena is gonna take a little bit longer. That’s time sasha doesn’t have.

I, um… I asked around, put some feelers out, but unfortunately I haven’t come up with anything yet. Oh, drew, be careful, please. I mean, if you feel like things are getting dangerous, I want you to back off. I will. Promise me.

I promise. Now, enough about me. How are you? Yeah, I mean, I’m doing fine. Except I hate that you’re not here. I know. How are the girls? They’re great. I mean, donna and josslyn are doing great. What about you? Have you seen scout and sam? Well, scout just started school. I mean, she’s really busy. She’s got homework and soccer practice and swim lessons. And so, no, I haven’t seen much of her, but I guess that’s probably for the best. You know what? I have diane working every angle to get you out of there. But until then, you can’t cut yourself off from the people who love you, especially scout. What have your sleuthing skills sussed so far? I did a bit of back checking on judge kim. And? Well, it seems that he’s, uh, pushing for a promotion to the second circuit court of appeals. Oh-ha-ha. Well, appearing to be tough on major crime — that would endear him to the second circuit court. But — but why go after somebody like drew, give him an overly harsh sentence? Forget about drew. Think about his girlfriend and her ex-husband. Once again, all roads lead to sonny. Valentin

and I weresupposed to have dinner in the hotel restaurant last night, and we changed our minds, decided to order room service. And then by the time we got to the suite, someone had broken in. What? I know. Oh, anna. I — well, I filed a report with the pcpd. Surely — I-I’m so sorry that this happened to you at my hotel. No, it’s not your fault. You — this is the first I’m hearing of this, honestly, and which is very strange, because nina is usually very good about — about communicating with me about hotel business. Did she leave a message somewhere or something? It’s possible, but she didn’t communicate with me directly. I mean, as I said, I was very distracted last night. Let me see. Maybe she left a message on my business line, but… I just want to apologize on behalf of the metro court hotel. Is there anything at all that I can do for you? I mean, you know, whatever you need. I assume you’ve been moved into a different suite. Oh, yes. Yeah. Your staff were great. They moved us almost immediately, and I’m fine. Really, I’m — thank you, though. Any idea who might want to do this to you? Yeah. I mean, it’s possibly the same person that burned my house, I think.

[ Sighs ] Anna, I’m sorry. If there’s anything that you need, I’m here for you. Yes, there’s something you can do. Name it. So, the security footage. Yeah. I was told it’s missing, and I-I just wanted to make sure there’s no misunderstanding.

[ Chuckles ] Missing? No. We have a state-of-the-art security system here. I can assure you of that. All right, well, if you can access the footage — but if it is missing… mm-hmm. …Maybe you can pull it up from another source, like the mainframe server or something? Okay, about, uh, what time did the break-in happen? Between 7:00 and 9:00 P.M., I’d say. All right, and I am just… looking up what suite you were staying in. What I would like is the corridor outside that suite, the footage from there, and also the surrounding area. Don’t worry, I know this will not be a problem. Thank you. Well, first, I need to keep charlotte close. I need to keep a watchful eye on her. I-I think I’ve been distracted. I’ve — I’ve obviously neglected her. Distracted, maybe. Neglecting her? No. My daughter is running around doing god knows what. She’s a child. That’s something I’ve obviously forgotten. I need to spend more time with her. You’ve always put charlotte first. You always have. Have I? Have I? ‘Cause I don’t think she feels that way. And now she’s targeting anna for my absence. Well, your daughter is gonna need more than just time with her dad. At some point, you are going to have to confront her about everything that she has done. I know. But first, I need to know the extent of my daughter’s crimes. If we can get the bank statements, it could provide circumstantial evidence. But I bet — I bet you those statements are gonna show that gladys withdrew a ton of sasha’s money. I mean, probably taken out in cash. Right. Well, if gladys was paying montague in cash, we won’t be able to prove it. And that means the only thing we have tying him to sasha and keeping her in ferncliff and almost killing her is cody. N-no. No one is gonna believe cody. Well, the other option is to try and prove that montague was giving sasha mood-altering drugs. Yeah, well, one step at a time, okay? First, we need to prove there was a drug. Mm. We’ve got to get the toxicology report. I think I have a way to get it.

Why don’t you tell meabout this meeting of yours? I could use a distraction. The lyrics just aren’t flowing for me this morning. Okay, so there is this amazing singer. Her name is blaze. She’s a total rising star, and I want to be the one to take her to the top. She is an incredible talent, like beyoncé level. Wow. She must really be something. Well, I wouldn’t be signing her if she wasn’t special. Oh, well… so she’s already agreed to work with you, then? Not exactly. We’re actually meeting today, and I am going to give her the full-court press about how she should sign with me. If she were smart, she would take the deal. You’ve got a lot going for you. Well, if all goes well, maybe I could represent you. What do you think? I’m not sure if you’d want me. Marshall ashford called this morning and offered me a gig at the savoy tonight. That’s great. Well, it is, except — well, it’s kind of stupid, but I-I promised him that I would finish this song, and I am not going to finish this new song. So my music career could be over before it even gets started. What? What is it? It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Anna, you were — you were right. I mean, the — the file containing the footage from noon to midnight is — is missing from the area around your suite. It’s, like, been wiped from the server. Could it be a computer glitch or…?

[ Chuckles ] If it is, it’s the first time that’s ever happened. Who else has access to the server it’s stored on? It’s only me and nina. I mean, hotel security can get the security footage, but they can’t have access to the server. All right, and how long do you typically archive your security footage? Three years before it’s deleted. Obviously, whoever broke into my suite, they — they hacked into your system and they deleted themselves breaking in. This does not sound like a random break-in, anna. This is obviously a professional job. Yeah, it does imply whoever’s after me is… somewhat sophisticated. The first thing I need to know is, did charlotte burn anna’s house? Oh, my god.

[ Scoffs ] I can’t imagine charlotte would do that to anyone, let alone anna. I just wish this was a mistake, some sort of misunderstanding. Oh, well, yeah, because not in 100 years would I think that charlotte would break into anna’s room, trash the place, destroy her clothes, write a threatening message. But we have that security footage. I mean, where was charlotte when anna’s house burned? She was at camp, but that’s an hour away. She could have taken a rideshare. Well, do you keep track of her rideshare history? I mean, do — do you keep track of her spending? I thought I did. I just — how could I be so stupid? No, valentin, valentin. You cannot blame yourself for any of this. I do. I do. I sent her to live with sam and dante. Who knows what she tells them that I’m okay with or not okay with? I mean, I have no idea what she’s up to when I’m not around. Carly, I wish I could talk to you all day. Carly: Yeah, I know.

Me, too. I got to go.

[ Sighs ] I love you. Same. Talk to you soon, okay? Bye. Cain. You serious about my son getting that internship at aurora? 100%. Yeah, that doctor you were asking about? Yeah. Gatlin-holt. Yes, him. I see where you’re going with this, robert. Figured you would. It’s a fascinating theory. So judge kim hands drew an overly harsh sentence, ridiculous, paving the way for the justice department to swoop in, provide carly with a deal — we will reduce drew’s sentence if, and only if, you, carly, flip on your ex-husband. There’s nothing to indicate that the justice department even know what’s going on here. It could be just the work of some overzealous judge who wants to score a few points. Either way, it could benefit drew.

[ Chuckles ] I love the way you think. Thank you. Shall we take this a step further? We still talking about the case?

[ Laughs ] We are. So, pure speculation. If judge kim is working on his own, then the justice department might want to have drew’s case reassigned to avoid even the appearance of impropriety. So my question for you is, where do I go… uh… …to do a — I-I’m gonna have to cut this short. Anna’s just arrived. Thank you. Willow. Hey. It’s so good to see you back at the hospital. Thank you, sam. It’s — I really missed it. I spent a lot of time here as a patient. It’s nice to be back as a nurse. Yeah, well, they are really lucky to have you. Uh, so what are you doing here? Is there anything I can help you with? Uh, I hate to hit you up on your first day, but, yeah, I-I do need a favor. And it’s — it’s not for me. It’s for sasha.

Okay, so your messagesaid it was important. What’s going on? Uh, you need to see this for yourself. Okay. See what? Well, why don’t you, um — ah! — Just sit yourself here. -Okay. -And I’ll join you in a minute. Wait. Where are you going? To get my briefcase and say goodbye to diane. Okay. Ah, I’m sorry, love. We got to cut breakfast short. Oh, well, love, you have been, uh, very helpful. Um, we’ll compare notes and, uh… do this some other time. That’s okay. I got it from here.

[ Stutters ] Breakfast is on me. Okay. I mean, I’ll — I’ll make it up to you. That’s okay. Totally not necessary. Come on, eddie. I know what it’s like struggling to finish a song. If the lyrics aren’t coming, you can’t force it. Your gut will tell you when it’s the right time to finish. Well, I appreciate it, but what am I gonna sing tonight? Marshall and the crowd will be expecting a new song. Well, maybe you could break out some of the classics. You can never go wrong with those. Well, I’ll figure something out. I hope you’re gonna be there. Oh, absolutely. I wouldn’t miss it. You know, I think there’s someone else who’d like to go. Maybe you can give her a personal invitation. Thanks for the advice. You’re pretty sharp, brook lynn. That blaze would be lucky to have you. This can’t be right. The security backup is even missing.

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Cellphone rings ] Oh. Hey, olivia. What’s up?

Hey, nina.

Uh, anna devane

was just in my office. She was telling me all about the break-in in her suite last night. Uh, do you know anything about this? Uh, y-yeah. I-I mean, I’m so sorry. Yeah, when I found out about it, I meant to tell you, but I just got distracted by work. Well, anna asked to see the security footage from the area around her suite the night of the break-in, and it’s — like, it’s missing from the server.

I know you were

in my office last night.

Is — is there any chance

that you tried to pull up the footage and, I don’t know, you accidentally deleted it or something? Y-you’re right. I-I did — I pulled up the footage and — but you know what? To tell you the truth, it was — it was already gone. So, listen, can we just talk about this when I get into the office? I have to go. Bye. Well, hi, sleepyhead. How was your night in the guest room? Where’s papa? Anna. Hey, it’s dante. I-I just read a report that — that said there was a break-in in your suite? I kind of wish I had heard it from you and not the police report, but, uh, you give me a call when you get a chance. Okay? Thanks. Dante. The, uh, desk sergeant said you were in here. Yeah. Okay, great. W-what is it, valentin? I need to talk to you privately. Okay. It’s kind of important. What about? Charlotte. Thank you. I’ll be back in just a second. So have you or dante heard from sasha or cody? I mean, do you know if they’re still together? Is sasha okay? Uh, I, um — I can’t go into details right now, but there may be a way for you to help sasha. Sasha is one of my best friends. She has put herself on the line for me so many times. I will do whatever is needed. Okay. Um… dante and I have a theory that dr. Montague, the, um, psychiatrist who was appointed to evaluate sasha, has been drugging her, undermining her mental health, and making her appear mentally ill. Oh, my god. That’s — that’s horrible. Why would a doctor do that? Right. Sorry. You can’t go into details. You know, it never made sense that sasha suddenly went off the deep end and stabbed cody. And then being sent to ferncliff seemed so extreme. What do you need me to do? Okay, the first step is proving it, so I need a copy of the toxicology report from the day that sasha stabbed cody. Do you think you can access that? The doctor you were asking about went to solitary. Why? Who was in solitary? Bobby lennon. He attacked a guard. And that’s who the doctor was here seeing. He — wait, he was here seeing a guard? No, no, lennon. The guards beat him up pretty badly, so the warden wanted to keep it quiet. Dr. Gatlin-holt. That’s who he was here visiting? I got my information right from the warden’s right hand. Was — was he here to see anybody else? No. One and done. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Wait a second.

Why would lennon attack a guard? He would know the guard could destroy him. Well, who knows? I mean, maybe he did it to get drugs from the doctor. I mean, you’d be surprised at what a lot of guys around here would do to get drugs. Well, that’s all I got. I don’t know what else to tell you. All right. Thank you. Yeah. Well done. Thank you. And your son — what’s his name? Keith? Yeah, yeah. Keith will be well taken care of. He’ll get far more than an internship at aurora.

[ Anna sighs ] Best part of giving a gift is giving the gift. Uh, what is this? Come on, just open it. No, you’re not the gift-giving type.

[ Scoffs ] This is no time to editorialize. Just — just open it. Come on. It’s not even my birthday. Yes, well, we went to a lot of trouble. A lot of people went to a lot of trouble to get this here, anna. You are so gonna love this. Yeah. Robert. You like it, huh? Say yes. What did you do? Ah, I knew it! You’re gonna love this. Thank you.

[ Cellphone chimes ] I just sent you a picture of it. Yeah. I got it. Great. You were right. And it’s bad. It’s all set. There you go. Hey, nina. Charlotte, hi. How’s it going? How’s school so far? Hi, carly. It’s — it’s going okay. We had a little sleepover, and, of course, uh, I have nothing in my kitchen for us to make breakfast. And even if my refrigerator was fully stocked, we’d still get a better breakfast here. Hey, well, that’s kelly’s — everybody’s home away from home. So, charlotte, do you want the usual? Y-you have a usual? I have the french toast when jake and I eat breakfast here. That’s right. Extra cinnamon? Yes, please.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. What’s the occasion? What brings you here? I just wanted to see papa. I’m glad you did. What did you do today? Where have you been? I was with jake. Jake and I scootered over to the promenade at the court’s lane waterfront. Since I was close, I thought I’d visit papa. Do you guys want to see something cool?

[ Laughs ] Yeah. Jake almost fell into the fountain. And in this one, I dared him to eat all the boba from the tea.

[ Chuckles ] Oh. Nina? Uh, I’m sorry. It’s just crimson has me very distracted lately. Do you want to order something? Charlotte and I have been apart far too long. She made me realize that last night when she showed up at anna’s hotel suite. Was that after the break-in? That’s why I wanted her to spend the night at nina’S. They’re still pretty close, and I wanted her to feel assured. And going forward, I want her to feel safe and secure. So I’m taking steps for the two of us to live together again full-time. Oh. Okay. I mean, that’s great. I mean, she — she misses you. I’m grateful to you and sam. You’ve been terrific. But I have a lot of time to make up for, you know? Maybe you could, uh, let her come by and visit every once in a while. Her and rocco were getting along pretty good. Believe me, I know now more than ever how important family is to charlotte. Hey, um, what are your thoughts on that break-in? Well, I think whoever’s done this is trying to unsettle anna. And I think they’ve succeeded.

[ Sighs ] Hi, blaze. Oh, no, no, no, no, no. We’re all set. I, um — I actually just wanted to call to let you know I’m really looking forward to our meeting. I think it could be the start of something really great. Yeah, I’ll see you soon. I want to know what happened to the footage from last night. Okay, w-well, it doesn’t just disappear. How could someone get into my security system and, what, just take down the security footage? What? Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, no, no, no, no. I don’t want to hear any excuses. The metro court hotel pays your company a small fortune to take care of this stuff. It is supposed to be secure. Okay. No, I want to know what the hell happened, and I want to know who’s responsible. Yes.

[ Sighs ] What?! Bad time? I’m gonna go to the restroom and wash my hands. Oh, yeah. Okay. I’m gonna get you a menu. Okay. Does charlotte come in here frequently? She’s been here a few times since she got back from camp. Is she usually alone, or is she with someone? What are you doing? Why do you want to know so much about charlotte? Well, valentin — he’s curious, you know, about what his daughter is doing since they spend so much time apart. She’s with dante and sam. She’s fine. I-I know she’s fine, carly. But you’ve raised a teenage daughter, right? You know that they don’t tell their parents everything, especially fathers. And that is what valentin is facing with charlotte. I’ve seen her in here with jake a few times. That’s it. Is she ever alone? Maybe once or twice, I think. Ever with anyone else? Oh, my god. I’ve only seen her with jake. That’s it. Okay. Thank you. Are you two talking about me? Hey. Hey. What’s, uh — what, you got something? I did.

[ Sighs ] Read it and weep. It’s really bad. But this is the first step in proving that montague was drugging sasha. Robert: Okay, there’s a switch on the back. Okay, that’s it. Yeah, that’s it. Push that. All righty. Well, don’t just hold it. Look at the pictures I uploaded. Come on. I’m treasuring the moment. Well, that’s what the pictures are for. You’ve got to look at them. Yeah. Number two. Look at number two. You’re gonna love it.

Love, love, love

the quiet’s getting way too loud

’round here

for a while that’s — that’S…

I want to live like every coast is clear

I could see the stars

from every side of this big world of ours

and charming boulevards

Sorry.That was very rude. I don’t want to seem unwelcoming. I-I just — I’ve got a lot going on at work today. I can see that. You look, uh, intense. Is work always this stressful for you? Well, you are passionate about your music, and I am passionate about my hotel. Fair enough. Speaking of my music… what? Did you finish the song? No, no, no, no. But the end will come to me eventually. Right. And when it does, I know it’s gonna be spectacular. One can only hope. But I did take another step forward in my music career. Really? How so? Marshall ashford is as good as his word. He called me this morning and asked me to perform at the savoy.

[ Laughs ] Oh, my god! When? Tonight. Ah! Oh, my god.

[ Laughing ] That is such great news. Uh, that’S… that’s really great news. I — [ Laughs ] Congratulations. Um… I know it’s gonna be great. It’s, uh — it’s, uh — it’s gonna be a really fun gig. Um, if you’ll excuse me, please. I got — I got a lot of work to do. Hotel’s not gonna run itself, right? Yes, the patient’s being transported to radiology now. Thank you. Willow, how’s yourfirst day going? It’s great. This was the perfect day for me to return to work. Dante: What am i looking at here? Sasha’s toxicology report. Wow. How did you get this?

[ Chuckles ] All right, so she’s got two drugs in her system. Yeah, the fluoxetine, which is an antidepressant she already had a prescription for, and dextroamphetamine. And when taken in combination with the antidepressant, it can cause hallucinations, paranoia — similar symptoms to a psychotic break. The dextroamphetamine must have been the drug that dr. Montague gave her to finally put her over the edge. Amazing. So how do we prove it? Drew. What do you want, cyrus? I wanted to warn you. Warn me? About — about what? The warden’s on a tear. Why? Rumors are circulating that she’s up for a big job. She can’t have anything happen that makes her look bad or incompetent. I’m hearing she’s putting the place on lockdown to make sure there are no incidents and nothing goes wrong. Lockdown? That’s go– that’s gonna put everybody on edge. Well, just keep your head down. Stay invisible. Yes, we were talking about you. About what? About how it seems like you have grown up overnight. You know who you remind me of at your age? Who? Lulu. Do you really think I’m like my mom? Oh, yeah. I know you adore your dad. But don’t forget, you’re a spencer, too. Oh, um, if you excuse me. Hey. Well? I just came from a chat with robert scorpio. Okay. I could really use some good news. He gave me a little insight as to why judge kim might have handed such a harsh sentence down to drew and what we can do about it. You miss your mom. Every day. I-I promised her I’d take care of rocco and not to worry about us and just to get better. But it still makes me sad she’s still in a coma. I know. But I always feel better when I’m with my papa.

[ Laughs ] Yeah. Guess what? What? He says we’re gonna to be together full-time. Great. Great. And anna? Yeah. That’s okay.

[ Laughs ] Oh, it’s the most perfect present. Thank you so much. Ah! What inspired you to do that? Well, you lost all that stuff in the fire. In fact, you were more upset about losing those pictures than you were about losing the house. I know. You can replace the house. Eh, I called in a few favors. I got everyone to go back through phones, albums, computers, anything — go back as far as you like and then go back further.

[ Laughs ] Ah, you are brilliant. When you’re right, you’re right.

[ Laughs ] This means the world to me. And you mean the world to me. I’m so glad that you like it. I love it. I’m probably gonna look at it, like, a couple of thousand times tonight [Laughs] And maybe some more in the morning.

[ Laughs ]

Okay, classic John Black. You tell me to meet you here, if you need to talk, and then you don’t talk. I will, I will, I will. I just, um, don’t know exactly where to start. So this is serious, huh? Sorry, man. Take your time. Sure. Joseph Bell. That John Bell guy who was in your dad’s unit in Korea? Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Doc and I had a long talk with him. And did he remember your father? Steve, that man is my father.

You’re still at the office? That’s why I called. Did you forget that my folks are coming over for dinner? Yes, Steph, I’m sorry. I’m gonna be there. It’s just, you know, this place has been crazy with Maggie on her evening leave. I just have one email to send and then I’ll be home. Chad? Yeah? Did I sound to you just now like a nagging housewife?

I feel like I sounded like a nagging housewife just now. Hey, you gonna, um, you gonna meet me at the door with a rolling bin?

Um. Do you need me to pick up anything on the way home? No, we’re good. Uh, there’s someone at the door. I love you. Love you too.

Vivian Alamein. What are you doing here? Well, is that any way to talk to your new boss?

Ah, there you are. Uh, I thought maybe a cup of tea would calm my nerves. Darling, it’s going to take more than a cup. It’s going to take an entire pot. You’ve really been put through the wringer. Yeah, it sure feels that way. Julie, I can’t thank you and Doug enough for letting me stay here. You don’t have to thank us.

You’re our family. You looked a little grim when you came in here. Is, uh, is that for me? It’s a registered letter. It’s from Vivian. Oh, so…

What, uh, fresh hell is this? Gosh,

you guys are back. Uh, what’d you find out, any leads? It’s getting so late, I was getting worried that Carissa, cut the act. We know what you’ve been up to.

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

I, I can explain that. Oh, don’t bother. The guy at the front desk already told us. What, he did? Yeah, he wanted to confirm my order. Champagne, Duck larange, and a petrushian beluga caviar. Oh, that. Oh, that, yeah, just the caviar, Theresa, costs a thousand dollars an ounce. There’s a little duck left. Did you even bother looking at the right side of the menu, or?

No, I was hungry. Look, I tried to order moustika and some ouzo and baklava, and you didn’t have it on the menu. Not the baklava and moustika part, and so I just had to come up with alternatives. And, you know, damn it, none of this just let me come with you. You didn’t get what you wanted, so you just decided to spend other people’s money, you know.

Changed. A bit. Spare me the litany of my shortcomings, Brady. Alright, why don’t you tell me what happened? Did you get any leads with that guy Constantine? Did you figure out what was happening with Victor before he died?

Okay, do you want me to open it? You want me to tear it into a million little pieces? No, I have to know what she’s up to. Dear Mrs. Horton. Mrs.


I’m writing to inform you that I am removing you from the position of Chief Executive Officer of Titan Industries, effective immediately. Firing you? She’s firing you?

New boss. What the hell are you talking about? It’s simple. Maggie is out, Vivian Cariocas is in. Vivian Cariocas? Yes. You see, Victor’s and my divorce was never finalized. So I was still married to him when he passed. Maggie was just a kept woman. Bull. And not only am I Victor’s widow, but I’m his sole heir.

Because he had the will and testament destroyed before he died.

Sorry for Maggie. Oh, now all I want to know is, are you going to be on the unemployment line with her, or are you going to be my number two when I execute my new plans for Titan?

Wow. So, the guy with the memory loss isn’t Joseph Bell. He’s the real Timothy Robichaud? And the man that I know as Yeo Ling is the real Joseph Bell. Turns out, he just switched dog tags with my… My dad. So strange to hear myself say my dad. I bet. Anyway… Yeah, they served in the same unit together. In fact, they were in the same foxhole together in Korea when they took a direct hit.

My father got the worst of it. Traumatic brain injury, caused the amnesia. He said he felt like he was gonna die, and he asked Joseph Bell for help. But instead, Bell just simply switched out the dog tags. Sounds like a real yo lang move. He was probably thinking about desertion for a while. My dad gets hit, he realizes, hell, it’s gonna be a lot easier to pull off if I can leave a dead body behind with his tags on it.

So he screws up your father’s life. Until he meets you.

It’s pretty amazing, isn’t it? Yeah, it’s amazing. And miraculous. I mean, uh, Timothy Robichaud just happens to come to Salem. He just happens to be treated by Kayla and Marlena. Who just happens to be married to a private investigator and turns out to be his son.

He’s a great guy. Stevie, he’s, he’s, he’s charming, he’s funny. Doc and I, we love having him with us. All the kids met him, they love him too. He’s just got this, he’s got this incredible spirit. I’m so happy for you now. Really. After all the crap you’ve been through. You deserve a dad like that. Ah, thanks partner, but you know, it’s not what I deserve, it’s what Timothy Robichaud deserves.

I mean, everything he’s been through, everything he’s been deprived of. You know, Doc and I, we just made a decision. We’re just, we’re gonna dote on the guy. We’re just gonna like, try to spend as much time with him as possible. Can’t wait to meet the man. Your you go.

Damn. Oh, yes. Thank you so much. Well, cheers. Cheers. Um, I love what you’ve done with the place. Mm. It’s a work in progress, but it’s definitely coming together. Where are the kids? I fed them and put them to bed already. Oh. Where’s Dad? Uh, well, John wanted to see him about something, but he’ll be alone. Yeah, Chad got held up too.

He’s, uh, pretty much running Titan with Victor gone and Maggie out on leave. I can imagine. Um, you know, I know it was for a sad occasion, Victor’s funeral, but, um, seeing Teresa was great, wasn’t it? I mean, did you get a chance to spend some time with her before she went to California? Uh, actually, she’s not going back to California.

She told me she’s staying here for a while. Oh, let me guess. She’s going after Brady again. Actually, uh, she has set her sights on someone new. Really? Who? Alex. Ah. And as I told Teresa, I would be totally cool if they started dating. Are you sure about that? Why wouldn’t I be? Well, I just think that it can be pretty dicey, you know, when relatives date the same guy.

And I, I do know from experience because I almost lost my relationship with Kim when I got involved with Shane after I thought your dad had died. Well, that was different. Uncle Shane is the love of Aunt Kim’s life. Alex is just an ex boyfriend. An ex boyfriend that you still see quite a lot. Because we’re neighbors.

But, Mom, in case you haven’t noticed, I’m with Chad. And I am totally committed to him. Great. Great. I’m just wondering, what is totally committed mean to you? I mean, do you see yourself marrying Chad?

So is it true? Yes, I just received a registered letter firing me. And that succubus is already at the office. She’s not wasting any time, is she? Maggie, I’m so sorry. Yeah, so am I. Well, is there anything I can do for you? No, Julie’s taking good care of me. But Chad, um… Yeah? Do what you have to do. Working for Vivian doesn’t mean you’re betraying me.

But, uh, Chad? Yeah? Maybe you could find out what she’s up to.

I will do.

Well, welcome to Titan. So, you were, uh, you were telling me about your vision for the company. What did you have in mind? Well, I want to honor Victor’s legacy. Take Titan back to its roots, uh, following his footsteps, so to speak. That’s a good idea. We should go to Greece and pick olives for three years. Try not to fall off a ladder.

How droll. I mean it. How do you think Victor got his empire? Shipping. And how did he get the capital? I don’t know. I do. Drugs.

You’re not talking about pharmaceuticals, are you? Street drugs. Is this, uh, uh, some kind of joke? Your big plan for Titan is to start laundering drug money? That’s, that’s, that’s insane. You know, I’m losing patience here. Titan is going to go back to selling illegal drugs. Now, are you on board or do I have to fire you?

No, you don’t have to fire me, Vivian. I quit.

So, according to this, she’s only giving you two weeks severance pay, is not picking up any of your sick days, and I suppose there’s not going to be any golden parachute. Yeah, you got it. She can’t get away with this one. I’m calling Justin. There’s nothing. That Justin can do. Okay, how about all those people on the Titan board?

Don’t you see? There wasn’t a will. So Vivian is Victor’s sole heir. Therefore, Titan’s majority shareholder. She has all the power. She can get rid of any board member who crosses her. Dear God, Maggie. So let’s face it, Julie. That woman can do whatever the hell she wants with Victor’s company, and there’s not a damn thing we can do to stop her.

So, speaking of fathers and sons, how’s Tripp holding up with Abel in the lab? Well, he’s worried, of course. But he’s hopeful his mom will be brought back safely. Mm hmm. Now, what are you gonna do? You planning on going out there and tracking down Abe and Michaels yourself? Brave asked me to sit this one out.

Thinks I’m too close to the situation because of Tripp. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I can understand all that, but I know you’re itching to get your butt out there, right? You know I am. Mm hmm. Well, my son, Brady, he’s in Greece right now with his cousin Alex. They’re, um, looking into Victor’s last days. Well, you’re the private detective.

Why didn’t you go? I figured they could handle this one on their own. Besides, they don’t need a third wheel to tag it along.

I don’t see how it’s any of your business at all. Come on, we’ve been over this, Brady. Victor’s legacy impacts our son, Tate Securiox II, or have you forgotten that already? No. Brady, it’s not like it’s a state secret or anything. We might as well just tell her. Thank you, Alex. Fine, fine. Tell her. Tell her everything.

So this guy Constantine Malionis, he did meet with Uncle Vic before his crash. He said that something was really upsetting him and that he was really troubled. Is that it? Did he mention why Victor destroyed his will? No, he did not mention anything about the will, but he did say something about a letter.

A letter? What letter? Well, Constantine didn’t remember, but Brady remembered that your Aunt Kayla went to the home where Uncle Vic was born. And she saw a box full of letters in his wine cellar. So we checked it out, but we didn’t find anything. And I mean, we tore this place up, but no letters.

Well, um, maybe they’re in here.

That is my grandfather’s briefcase. What the hell are you doing with it? My dad delivered it while you two were out. Your dad? Shane, Shane was here and you’re just now telling us this? Well, I wanted to hear about your meeting first. Theresa, what, what, okay. What did he say and why did he have that? Look, the ISA recovered it from the wreckage from the plane crash and I’m thinking maybe Victor put those letters in on Kayla told you about.

Maybe she put them in here. She may be right. She may, yeah. Um, let’s open it. We’re gonna open it. I don’t think that’s a good idea.

You know, I heard that Victor had ordered his will destroyed right before he died. And also that Vivian showed up claiming to be his widow. Do you have any idea what she might be up to? Well, she either wants to establish a foundation for the betterment of mankind or she wants to suck every dime she can get out of Maggie’s inheritance.

I’d say it’s the second one. What was Vic thinking about anyway? Why would he have that will destroyed? He never would have done that if he thought he was still married to Vivian. That woman is not only crazy, she’s dangerous. Which is why you should watch what you say in public. John. Oh, still slumming, I see.

Marriage? Mom, where is this coming from? Chad and I just moved in together. But you didn’t just move in with Chad. You moved in with his kids. We decided they’re still too young to have a place of their own. Which results in them becoming very attached to you. And vice versa. But, what has that got to do with marriage?

I just think you and Chad need to look at it from their point of view. I mean, you are making meals for them. You’re tucking them in at night. Because I’m seeing their father. Well, isn’t marriage the next logical step? The next logical step for me, Chad, and the kids, or… Or my meddling, if well meaning, Catholic mother.

This has nothing to do with me being Catholic. Well, you’re starting to sound like Grandma Caroline talking about how men won’t buy the cow if they get the milk for free. No, no, no. It is nothing about that. I tell you, I just, I just worry about loss for those kids. And, and I want you to be happy. Don’t you want to marry Chad?

Mom, yes, of course I want to marry Chad, okay?

Theresa, I don’t give a damn what you think. Okay, this belongs to my grandfather and I have a right to know what’s inside it. But my dad specifically said he wanted Victor’s briefcase delivered safely to Maggie. He thinks she should be the one to open it.

Alright, maybe, perhaps. Fine, we’ll, we’ll open it when we get back to Salem. That’s All right, well, then we’re done. We’re done. We might as well go back home. All right, I’m, I’m gonna go pack. Oh, no, no, no, dude. It’s already after midnight. Dude, there’s not gonna be any flights until tomorrow morning. So let’s just get some sleep, and we’ll get up when we leave first thing.

Yeah? All right. I already checked. There’s plenty of seats available on the early flight. Plenty of seats? Fine, we’ll leave in a couple hours. It shouldn’t make much of a difference. Uh, have a good night. See ya.

Where do you think you’re going? Where else? With you, to your room. Like hell you are.

Chad, you’re home. Hey. Hi. I’m gonna, um, I’m gonna, I’ll, if you want, I can leave and then you guys two can, uh, you two can finish your conversation. Oh, don’t be ridiculous. My mom was just being mom. Oh. Uh, anyway, my dad’s going to be here soon. How about a glass of wine while we wait? That’d be great. Um, why don’t you tell us about your day?

How was it? Um, yeah, it was, uh, it was okay. Until, um… Vivian Halloween showed up.

John, my darling nephew. I’m so happy to see you. Even though you didn’t come to visit me one day in prison. Well, I would have, but I didn’t want to. Well, John, as much as I would love to. Stay and catch up with you and Auntie Viv. I gotta go. Stephanie and Kayla are probably wondering where I am. Yeah. But hey, congratulations, man.

Really. Thanks, partner. Yeah. Best to the family. John, are you surprised to see me? No, no, no. I knew you were here. And I also know that you inherited Victor’s entire estate. Yes, it was such a lovely surprise. Yeah, for you perhaps, but not so much for Maggie. Oh, well, you know Maggie, long suffering, but oh, enough about her.

But I have a proposition for you. Yeah, and that would be what? I want you to come and work for me

at Titan. First Vivian steals your home, now she wants to destroy your career. Gotta admit, the old hag has got a lot of ambition.

Worry not. Worry not. I meant it when I said I was gonna help you find the way to fight this. I know you did. Meantime, you always have a home with Doug and me. I appreciate that. But I really should start looking for someplace of my own. Nonsense. Grandma Alice would be whirling over in her grave if she thought for a minute you were alone at a time like this.

Well, the Horton family is not rich and powerful and… Nasty, like the cariocases, but the hortons stick together like glue. Would you? You don’t know what that means to me right now. Good. Okay, have you heard from Brady? Have you heard from Alex? No. No no’s is good news, right? Oh, Julie, I swear to God, if they read Victor’s will and told me that he didn’t have a dime to his name, that he blew it on private planes and Greek statues, and that I was flat broke, I would have thrown my head back and laughed.

But the thought that that venal, evil woman It’s claiming that she is Victor’s widow, stealing everything that he worked so hard for. Brady and Alex, they… Damn it, Julie. They’ve got to find something to stop her. They have to. From your lips, darling. Yeah.

Well, I can’t stay here, Brady, with Alex. I barely know him. That didn’t used to matter to you. God, Brady. I was a little below the boat. Sigh.

Look, we share a child, we can share a room. Theresa. No. Brady, you know what? If you’re worried about protecting your virtue, I’m not interested in sleeping This has nothing to do with my virtue. It’s not a good idea. I don’t want to be alone with you, okay? Brady, lighten up. Alex, please, stay out of this.

Listen, I’m gonna say this to you as well as I can, I don’t think you’re getting this. These delusions of you and I getting back together, Teresa, that’s what they are, they’re delusions. It’s not gonna happen, and what is happening here is you’re coming across desperate and pathetic, and it’s embarrassing for everybody, so please don’t do it anymore.

Just stop. Good night.


you alright?

Not really.

Vivian fired Maggie and is taking over for Titan? Effective immediately. And you quit your job? I had to. Her new business plan is to start moving illegal drugs for Titan. You’re right. You had to quit. Huh. It’s probably your dad. I’ll get it. I’ll get it. Okay. Hi. Sorry I’m late. Hey. What’s going on? It’s like a Morgan.

Chad just quit his job because Vivian Allemane is now in charge of Titan. Damn that woman. No wonder she seems so pleased with herself.

You want me to be your COO? Yes! I made a couple of suggestions about the direction I wanted Titan to go in and Chad DeMera just f ed up and quit. And you were the first person I thought of to replace him. But I have a job. Oh, please, that detective agency. John, you’re an alimane. By adoption. But you have grander things to do than run around Salem photographing philandering husbands.

But I don’t want grander things. I’m happy with the job that I have. Isn’t there anything I can do to change your mind? Hmm. Actually, there is. Uh huh. Every man has his price. Give Maggie back her house. It’s my house. It’s not your house. We both know Vic wanted Maggie to have that house. Well, then he shouldn’t just destroy the will.

Damn it, Vic, for once, just once, will you do the right damn thing? Come on. I would like to. But the fact is, my lawyer told me that if I give Maggie one dime of Victor’s fortune, that will acknowledge that she has access to my husband’s fortune. I can’t do it. Well, looks like you’re gonna have to find yourself another corporate stooge then.

Who? It’s

okay. It’s okay. Look, Theresa, hey. Hey. Brady did not mean what he said. Yes, he did. No, he didn’t. No, he didn’t. He’s jet lagged and he’s worried about Auntie Maggie. You can’t take anything he’s saying right now to heart. He just said what everybody else thinks about me. And that I’m an awful person, that I’m, that I’m unlovable.

No, no, no, no, no, no. That is not true. That is not true at all. Hey, like I said, Brady is off his game right now. That’s all. I mean, the guy lost custody of his daughter. He lost his grandfather. Vivian is making Maggie’s life a living hell, you can’t listen to what he’s saying right now. That’s it, you know, he’s lashing out and he should not be lashing out on you.

He said I was desperate and pathetic! Well that’s not true. He’s wrong, Theresa. You’re smart, you’re brave, and you are, hey, you’re very beautiful. You really think I’m beautiful? Have you ever looked in a mirror? I think you do. I

think… That’s a little better, right? Give it a good look. Thank you. You’re welcome. Thank you for being here with me. I don’t know what I’d do if you weren’t here.

Uh, you know, maybe, maybe it’s because I’m in PR and cautious by nature, but if you are wanting to trade in illegal drugs, isn’t it usual to want to keep that quiet? Yeah, well, our Vivian sure thinks outside the box. Maybe I should call her and pitch her an ad campaign. If you’re thinking drugs, think Titan.

Titan wants to take you higher.

I love how you two make each other laugh. You know, there’s no greater sign of compatibility. Yeah, well, we make each other chuckle here and there. So well. Kids thinking about getting married any time soon? Steve. What? What’d I say?

Knock, knock. Who the hell let you in? Well, I rang the doorbell, but I assumed your staff was off for the night. What do you want, Vivian? Well, I brought these to you, these hideous figurines. Well, I was going to toss them. I thought you might want to donate them to charity. Because you’re going to need, possibly, a tax deduction.

I remember how much you enjoyed throwing Maggie out of her own house. Now, it’s my turn to throw you the hell out of mine! Unhand me!

God, give me strength.

Hey, Brady, how’s it going, kid? Hey, Dad, uh, good news. Listen, uh, no luck with Constantine, but the ISA found Grandfather’s briefcase in the plane wreckage and Shane brought it over to the hotel. Ah, that is good news. What was in it? Not sure. Uh, apparently Shane wanted Maggie to open it. Apparently? What, you didn’t talk to him?

No. He handed the briefcase off to somebody else.

Um, Um, Um,



Yeah, yeah.

smarter than this. You have to see that if you don’t cut sheila out of your life immediately, you will lose steffy and your children forever.

Douglas: How do you draw like this?

Thomas: Uh, that’s a great question. I’m not sure actually. I can tell you that your mom has, don’t tell her this, been always my biggest source of inspiration.A@

Douglas: Wouldn’t it be fun if you and mom could take beth and me to the beach soon? We could have a picnic. Watch the sunset.

Thomas: Yeah. Yeah, that’d be great. That’d be a lot of fun.

Douglas: Mom’s the happiest when family’s together.

Thomas: Yeah. Hey, look, you know, your mom and I, we love you very, very much alwaywanna spend time together, all three of us, right? But sometimes we don’t always get what we want, you know, and we have to– we have to be patient, can’t push things. I mean, mom is going through a lot right now. So let’s just wait, relax, and see how things turn out. Okay?

Hope: Dad?

Deacon: You better go hide. Just a second, honey. Go, go, go. Hey.

Hope: Uh, hi. What took so long?

Li: Oh, sheila. Sheila. Sheila. I am so sick of hearing about that woman. She’s inflicted too much heartache and pain. She needs to be stopped. And you’re the only one who can get through to her and end her madness. Lean cuisine.

Thomas: Let’s get you drawing, huh? Here’s a pencil.

Douglas: Oh I can’t right now. I’ve gotta go actually.

Thomas: Okay, big man on campus. You got some plans? What’s going on?

Douglas: Well, I’m grabbing a ride with aunt donna. We’re gonna hang out before she drops me off at mom’S.

Thomas: Oh, okay. Uh, no worries. But– but just say, before you go, everything’s gonna be all right, your mom and I, we love you very much and that’s never gonna change. And if your mom and I are meant to be together, everything’s gonna fall into place. Okay?

Douglas: I love you too, dad. And I agree. I believe our family will fall right into place.

Finn: I will do anything for my family, mom. Sheila won’t ruin it for me. I promise you that.

Li: I want to believe you. I’ve always had faith in you. My beautiful, brilliant son.

[ Li chuckles ] But I can see that she has a hold on you. You must break that hold. I am not leaving until you tell me sheila is going to be out of our lives once and for all. I need to see that you know what needs to be done.

Hope: What’s going on, dad? You seem a little bit distracted.

Deacon: No, I was gonna, uh, jump in the shower. What are you doing here? Why did you come over? I mean– I mean, I’m always happy when you come over. I just– sit down.

Hope: Oh, okay. Oh, well, um, it’s been a minute and I just wanted to check in on you and besides, beth and douglas are missing their mermaid grandpa.

Deacon: Ah, that’s merman.

Hope: Oh, I’m sorry. Well, we would like to have the merman over for dinner sometime soon, so.

Deacon: I would love that. I– I would really love that. Thank you. Um, I miss them and– and– and I miss you, too. Just been thinking about you a lot lately. I’ve been a little worried.

Hope: You’re worried about me?

Deacon: Yeah, I mean, hope, you’re my daughter. I– I know I haven’t always been around as your father but, you know, your– your marriage is ending and it’s– it’s gotta hurt. Liam’s been a big part of your life.

Hope: And he still will be. He’s an amazing father and i have no doubt that we are going to co-parent well together.

Deacon: Just sounds kind of sterile.

[ Hope chuckles ]

Hope: Well, it’s not what I wanted for myself. But you have to take what life throws at you, right? And besides, you know, things– things happen and, um, I’ll be fine. I can take care of myself.

Deacon: Well, you don’t have to, you know that? I mean, look, honey, I get it. I get that you’re strong and you’re independent and I suppose that probably comes from not having your father around. But I’m here now. I want you to know you’re not alone. You come here any time you want. I’m here for you. No one and nothing is gonna interfere with our relationship. You hear me?

Hope: I hear you.

[ Cell phone chimes ]

Hope: Let me just check, it might be work.

Deacon: Yeah.

Hope: Oh, um, okay. I– I know that I said I wanted to hang out but I– I think this is important. I– I think everything’s okay. I just– I think I need to take care of this, dad. I’m so sorry. I know I just got here.

Deacon: No, it’s okay. It’s okay. I’m just glad I got a chance to see you. Let’s catch up soon, okay? And that dinner, I would love that and I love you.

Hope: I love you, too.


Hope: All right. See you soon, okay?

Deacon: Yep. That was close. That was too damn close. Sheila, we can’t do this anymore. (Vo) when it comes to nature valley’s classic crunchy bar,

Li: I’m so blessed to have you as my son. You’re the greatest joy of my life. But it’s still so upsetting that your father’s affair brought that psychopath into our lives.

Finn: I feel– I feel guilty.

Li: Never. No, you are innont you always have been, even now. It’s only natural to want to know where you came from. This is your father’s doing. He let sheila turn our lives upside down by betraying me. Your family is torn apart. Your wife and children are halfway across the world to stay away from that monster.

Finn: Yeah. I’m gonna fix this. I will not let you or steffy down. And I will not allow sheila to keep me away from my wife and my kids any longer.

Sheila: Okay. Deacon, come on. Take a deep breath. She didn’t see us. Nothing happened.

Deacon: Nothing happened? Sheila, we were seconds away from getting caught. Thank god that door was locked. If she– if had seen us together–

Sheila: No, but she didn’t see us together. It’s okay, she has no idea.

Deacon: But if she saw us together, that’d be it for me and my daughter. She’d have nothing to do with me. I mean, this– this doesn’t make sense at this point. I’m just playing with fire.

[ Sheila chuckles ]

Sheila: So what– what exactly are you saying?

Deacon: You know how I feel about you… but I can’t lose hope. Whatever we’re doing, it ends, today.

Hope: Um, hi.

Thomas: Hi.

Hope: I got your message.

Thomas: I didn’t text you.

Hope: Yes, you did.

Thomas: No, you– you texted me.

Hope: No– no, I didn’T.

Both: Douglas.

Douglas: Oh, hey, guys.

[ Hope laughs ]

[ Thomas clears throat ] We used to struggle with greasy messes.

Thomas: Okay, so let me get this straight. You texted me as your mom.

Hope: And you texted me as your dad.

Douglas: Pretty easy, actually.

Hope: Oh, okay, well, you seem to pull this all together pretty quickly.

Thomas: Well, I mean, that kind of makes sense. He is a forrester. Forresters know how to set a very romantic scene, don’t they? Isn’t that right?

Douglas: Yeah. You know it. Dad told me that things would fall into place with our family. I just wanted to help things fall into place a little bit faster.

Thomas: Right. When I said that, I meant to be patient, right? And not expect anything too soon or at all.

Douglas: I love you both so much, you’re the best mom I know. And you’re the best dad I know. But together, well, you make each other better, ’cause that’s what family does. Right?

Finn: I swear to you, mom, my family is the most important thing to me, and it is killing me that my wife and kids are so far away.

Li: It’s because of sheila. Steffy loves you, she wants to come home, I know that.

Finn: You need to understand though, mom, I am barely functioning here. I mean, I can’t sleep, my heart aches, I love steffy. Okay? I love her. She needs to be home with me, where she belongs. This place, it’s just– it is so lonely without them. I need them back.

Li: I believe you can do it. Yes, you’re the only one that can get through to that woman.

Finn: I haven’t, um– I haven’t said this to anyone before, ’cause I’m kind of at a loss. But what happens, like– what if she won’t let go?

[ Tense instrumental ]

Li: You listen to me, your mother. I remember when you would have a science problem that would be hard to solve. Or a math theorem. You would go around and around, look at– looking at it from every angle, looking for that weak spot where you can just dig into, and expand. That’s what you’ll do. You’re going to think outside of the box like you always have, and then you’ll find the answer.

Finn: You’re right. You’re absolutely right. I have to. I don’t know how I’m gonna make that happen, but I’m gonna figure it out. I’m not gonna risk losing my family.

Sheila: So, this is it, huh? It’s– it’s over?

Deacon: God, this is– this is hard. There’s a part of me– there’s a big part of me that doesn’t want to let you walk out that door. I just love being with you. And you’re not like anyone I’ve ever met before. You’re unique and mesmerizing and… deliciously dangerous. But sheila, for the first time in my life, I feel like I’m making something of myself. When I look in the mirror, I don’t see some loser staring back at me. And the restaurant’s rocking and rolling, and hope, she– she respects me. My daughter– my daughter loves me. You can’t know what that–

Sheila: No, I– I do know.

Deacon: Yeah. Yeah, I guess you do. I– I can’t– I can’t mess this up, and I can’t let it go. You know, she wants to be with me, when she looks at me, it’s like– it’s like the greatest feeling in the world, you heard her. She– she wants to be with me. She wants to have dinner with me. The grandkids wanna see me. Why would I take a chance on losing that?

Sheila: You can’T. You can’t risk it. I want to be with you too. I– I don’t want this to end, but I am so grateful for every moment I got to spend with you. Everything that you did for me. You’re incredible. And I– I don’t just mean in bed. [ Chuckles ] You’ve really shown me that it is possible to change. I mean, to earn a spot in your friends’ and family’s lives. And I– I and I can only hope that– that that really might happen for me. It’s what I want with finn. And I– I can make that happen. I know I can, but– but even so, I– I’m so proud of you… and everything that you have accomplished, I just– I want you to have it all.

Deacon: I want you to have it too, sheila.

Sheila: Thank you. Thank you. I think I will. I see what you share with your daughter, and I– I hope that I have that with my son, it’s what I really want with my son, and I can make that happen. I know that I can, I– I see what you’ve done with hope. What you’ve accomplished. I hope I might make finn see me the way that she sees you.

[ Laughs ] It– it sounds so crazy.

Deacon: No, hey, we don’t– we don’t like that word, remember?

Sheila: Yeah. You know what? Yeah, you’re right. You’re– you’re right, we don’T. But you’ve given me faith, deacon. You’ve given me faith that this can happen. I know I can make it happen. You will be with your daughter and grandchildren. And I will be with finn and hayes.

[ Sheila laughs ]

Li: Listen to me. There is nothing more important for you to understand. Stay focused, you cannot give in to sheila ever again.

Sheila: I have never been more determined about anything in my life. And you know me, when I put my mind to something I make it happen. And seeing you, your relationship with hope, it is– it has truly inspired me. I am going to have the relationship with finn that I’ve longed for. I can just– I can just feel it.

[ Sheila laughs ]

Jack: I checked up on ashley before we left for work this morning. She’s doing okay, all things considered.

Billy: Well, I’m glad to hear that. Has she heard from tucker?

Jack: Oh, he blew up her phone the first couple of days. Now, radio silence.

Billy: The only thing that creeps me out more than hearing his smart ass threats is not hearing his smart ass threats. It’s like we’re sitting here waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Jack: Well, he’s tucker mccall, so it’s waiting for the other live grenade.

Billy: Exactly, which means we gotta make a move, jack. Asap.

Jack: Agreed.

Billy: So, who talks to devon first? You or me?

Devon: Hey, hey.

Lily: That was quick.

Devon: Yeah. You sounded upset.

Lily: Yeah, I am.

Devon: Why? What’s going on?

Lily: Um, do you remember how victor became a private investor to stop us from taking chancellor-winters public?

Devon: Yeah. How can I forget that?

Lily: Well, uh, he now wants out of chancellor-winters.

Devon: What? Why?

Lily: I don’t know. And what’s worse is that he’s privately sold off his stake to a third party already.

Devon: That doesn’t make any sense. Who’s the third party investor?

Lily: That is the million-dollar question.

Diane: Good morning, phyllis.

[ Phyllis gasping ]

Phyllis: Diane, please, please don’t start with me. Please.

Diane: I just finished a morning meeting. And what brings you here?

Phyllis: What did I just say?

Diane: Well, I thought maybe you had a coffee date. I’m just trying to make polite conversation.

Phyllis: We just tolerate each other, okay? Let’s not pretend there’s anything else besides that. It really just gets on my nerves. Unless that’s what you’re trying to do, is get on my nerves, in which case, you have succeeded.

Diane: What I’m trying to do is establish some sort of civility between the two of us for kyle and summer’s sake. I assume you’re as interested as I am in trying to get them back together since you’re the reason they’re headed for a divorce in the first place.

[ Phyllis clearing her throat ]

Phyllis: I think we’re both to blame for that.

Diane: Mm, I don’t think so. You know, I’m not the one who put summer in the position of having to lie to kyle over and over and over again.

Phyllis: And, by the way, I just found out about this. Your son wasted, I don’t know, three minutes on thinking about what he should do before he jumped into bed with that audra girl.

Diane: Oh, right, right. And the thought of meaningless sex as an escape from emotional pain is offensive to your deeply engrained moral standards?

Phyllis: Diane, I’m sorry. I just cannot do this with you. Enough.

Kyle: Thank you. I think you’re right. There’s no coming back from what you did. No second chance for our marriage, so let’s end this torture.

Summer: So?

Kyle: It’s time to divorce. No reason not to move forward.

Summer: Okay. Okay, I’ll, um… I’ll move all of my stuff out of the house as soon as I can. I’ll get in touch with a lawyer. Kyle, I really hope that we can keep this friendly, for harrison’s sake.

Kyle: We’ll handle it as adults, as parents.

Summer: Kyle, wait. I really am sorry. For– for everything.

Kyle: Me too.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: Kyle. Hi.

Kyle: Hey. You saved me a phone call.

Summer: Harrison’s okay, isn’t he?

Kyle: He’s fine. I just wanted to make sure you got the letter confirming our legal meeting to clarify his custody agreement.

Summer: Yeah, yeah, I did. I’ll be there. Anything I can do to make this divorce as easy and painless as possible for harrison.

Kyle: Please. You know, harrison comes first, so we go in with that in mind. He deserves two fully invested parents who don’t let their own stuff get in the way of his happiness.

Summer: Yeah, I– I don’t want this to be any harder on him than it already is.

Kyle: I know you don’T. Things will work out the way they should.

Summer: Is– is this us calling a truce? (Vo) ultimate endless shrimp is here.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Kyle: Whoa, let’s not get crazy.

Summer: Oh, no. You’re right. Maybe we should go back to fighting.

[ Both chuckling ]

Kyle: No, I don’t want that. For harrison or for us.

Summer: This conversation feels really different than any of the other ones we’ve had lately.

Kyle: Things were messy. Time heals and… all of that, but putting harrison first, it, uh, you know, simplifies things, don’t you think?

Summer: Well, being harrison’s mom is just about the best thing that’s ever happened to me, so yeah, I do agree. 100%.

Kyle: You are his mom. You always will be. We’re lucky to have him. That’s all that matters.

Summer: I’m really relieved. I didn’t know if this thing between us just was gonna drag on and we were gonna double down on our resentments, but if– if you’ve really moved past your anger to acceptance–

Kyle: I have, summer. Our son deserves an incredible life and he can’t have that if he has a brooding and pissed off father.

Summer: Or mother. I’m not sure how we got here, but I’m really glad that we did.

Diane: Setting aside what I’ll politely call “our issues,” wouldn’t you like to see our kids find their way back to one another?

Phyllis: Diane, listen. I promised my daughter I wouldn’t get involved. I’m not breaking my promise.

Diane: What? Now? After all the destruction, you’re suddenly hands off? Talk about convenience.

Phyllis: Okay, well, wow. This is fun.

Diane: All right, look. Phyllis, I’ll be honest. All I care about is my son and I’m worried about him and he’s hiding from his feelings by throwing himself into work and yes, that ridiculous affair.

Phyllis: Well, it is a nightmare.

Diane: Yeah.

Phyllis: I’ll agree with you there, but if you’re gonna try to make my daughter forgive kyle, that’s not the answer.

Diane: I’m not trying to make anyone do anything, but I’m not the only one that should put in some effort here, despite whatever promises you made summer. Phyllis, you don’t have to meddle, but– but if you and I can put on a united peaceful front, then maybe the two of them will do the same.

Phyllis: Okay, I gave my word my daughter. I’m not going back on it. I’m not.

Diane: All right, then why don’t you think of something? You know what? On second thought? Forget it. I don’t know why I’m even trying to have a rational conversation with you.

Phyllis: All right. Okay. So, give it up immediately, like, forever.

[ Diane scoffing ]

Phyllis: Okay.

Tucker: Ladies.

Diane: Oh, of course. Of course, this is who you’re meeting. You two are perfect for each other.

Tucker: I don’t think she meant that as a compliment.

Jack: I will admit that your idea of turning devon against tucker kept me awake half the night. I– I understand your thinking, but the potential damage it could do–

Billy: Hold on a second. We’re not poisoning devon against tucker based on a bunch of lies. We’re not manipulating him. We don’t have to do that. We present the cold, hard evidence that tucker is still the deceitful con artist he was when he left genoa city.

Jack: Then, it’s your belief that if we could convince devon that his father is incapable of change, no matter what he does, it will drive a wedge between the two of them.

Billy: I sure as hell hope so, jack. And look, devon is a decent guy. Too decent of a guy to keep tucker in his life and if tucker loses devon, he loses his connection to genoa city and hopefully, he’s the hell out of town, okay? And out of our lives for good.

Jack: I understand your thinking. Tucker and devon are father and son. Devon already lost neil. Think about it. Somebody coming between you and dad, or you and johnny.

Billy: It’s not the same thing. Tucker is a maniac. He’s a jackass. And honestly? He doesn’t deserve devon or dominic.

Jack: If we’re gonna do battle with tucker, it is our battle to fight. We have no right dragging devon into this, even if we can convince ourselves we’re doing it for the right reason. I’m kareem abdul jabbar.

Billy: Tucker is toxic, jack. He’s dangerous. We know that. Devon gave him a chance when he came back into town. Hell, ashley did too. How did that work out for her? It’s only a matter of time before he screws things up with devon as well.

Jack: Exactly. So, why force the issue?

Billy: Because we want him out of town. Do we not want that? Look, the longer he spends here, jack, the more damage he does. Not just to us, to our family, to this company. Think about the potential fallout to devon, to abby, to dominic. The more time he spends with them, the more pain he causes them.

Jack: I’m sorry, billy, no matter what you say, we can’t turn this wrong into a right. But we have to find some other way to drive tucker out of town, and we will, but right now, drop this. Oh, I got a meeting I got to get to.

Billy: We’ll finish this later, jack.

Jack: We already have finished it.

[ Billy sighing ]

Devon: So, jill has no idea who this other investor might be?

Lily: No idea. Or why victor even sold his interest in chancellor-winters. It’s like, did he lose faith in us or what?

Devon: Or what’s the agenda of this new investor?

Lily: And why would he do this without talking to jill about it first?

Devon: Or at least giving her a heads up.

Lily: I don’t know. I mean, jill wants to find out the answer to all these things.

Devon: Where do you imagine we would start if we don’t have a name?

[ Lily scoffing ]

Lily: I don’t know. Victor, I guess? I mean, I want to meet with him and see if he’ll tell me anything. Actually, you know what? He demoted victoria as ceo of newman and reinstated himself. I wonder if that has something to do with it?

Devon: Hm.

[ Phone chiming ] That’s billy. He wants to meet with me.

Lily: About what?

Devon: It’s probably tucker because now that he’s on his own and he’s claiming that ashley broke his heart, the abbotts think that he’s gonna do something to retaliate, so billy’s probably trying to figure out or find out what he’s up to.

Lily: How do you feel about tucker being back and what he’s saying about ashley?

Devon: Uh… I mean, if it were anyone else, it’d be a lot easier to give them the benefit of the doubt, but as abby keeps reminding me, he’s who he is, so he’s probably not the victim in all of this, you know?

Lily: Well, she’s not wrong.

Devon: Oh, believe me, I– I– I do know that he deserves and has earned all of the skepticism that he gets. I just thought that maybe he’d wanna change for once in his life. I’ve kept him at arm’s length for a while. Then, I finally started to let myself believe in him.

Lily: I mean, of course. He’s your birth father. Of course, you wanna believe in him.

Devon: Honestly, at this point, I just wanna know the truth about what happened between him and ashley, and maybe if billy can tell me where the abbotts are coming from, it’d help me figure it all out.

Tucker: I’m guessing you wanted to see me for one of two reasons: You’re interested in the offer or you just missed me. The offer.

Phyllis: As you already pointed out, I do need to reimburse the insurance company for the payout when I died. Or else they’ll come after me to sue me, so I am interested, but…

Tucker: But? No, no. No buts. In or out, right now.

Phyllis: Okay, well this is too serious of a game for me. I need to know the name of the company–

Tucker: No. You don’t need to know until I decide you need to know.

Phyllis: No, I do need to know. This is a big deal. It doesn’t matter. I think I already know.

Tucker: Do you?

Phyllis: Yeah. You and ashley have imploded. You want payback. You’re going after jabot.

Tucker: It’s close, but not quite. If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Summer: Thank you. So, tell me. How are you doing with all the changes at newman? How does my grandma taking over at newman media affect you?

Kyle: Well, I think I’m safe for now, but it’s impossible to say with all this upheaval across the board. And between that and your grandmother finding out about…

Summer: You and audra. Ah. She must not have been very happy about that.

Kyle: Oh, she was way past not happy. She forced audra to end things with me if she wanted to keep her job.

Summer: Hm.

Kyle: Summer, you have a very protective grandmother.

Summer: And a pretty generous one too, if you think about it. Bet it was all she could do to not fire her opportunistic ass.

Kyle: Okay, I’m the one you should be pissed off at. Not her.

Summer: I’m just calling it like I see it. Seriously, kyle. I’m glad that whatever it was with audra is over because, I mean, you gotta know, no good was gonna come of it. And if you don’t believe me, you could ask noah.

Kyle: Yeah, well, it’s over, so that doesn’t really matter anymore, does it?

Summer: Kyle, I’m sorry.

Kyle: I’m sure.

Summer: No, I don’t mean that I’m sorry that it’s over between you and audra, obviously. But, I do believe that you’d never would have gotten involved with her if I hadn’t hurt you so badly. So, yes to the extent that you are vulnerable to her, because of me, I am sorry.

Jack: The only backstabbing son of a bitch in this room is you.

Tucker: If you say so.

Jack: What is this? Some new tactic to create tension between my co-ceo and me? Any efforts to destabilize jabot in the past haven’t worked. We are strong, jabot is solid.

Tucker: I hear you, I hear you. Jack, you gotta let go of all this hostility. Ashley and I have. We’re not a threat to you and if you want to continue to trust billy, that’s your call. Be my guest.

Billy: But you don’t really 100% trust me, do you?

Jack: Why don’t you think I can trust you?

Billy: Because it’s your instinct, jack. Because you think, for one second, that I might go to their side. To go against everything that I promised to the company, to our family, to our father’s legacy, the promise that I made to you.

Jack: I’m sorry that you took what I said that way.

Billy: Give me a break, jack. There’s only one way to take that.

[ Diane sighing ]

Jack: Hey.

Diane: Hey.

Jack: Uh-oh. What’s wrong?

Diane: I’ll give you three guesses and they should all start with phyllis.

Jack: What happened?

Diane: Well, don’t worry. I was perfectly polite. But in trying to find some common ground with her, I very logically suggested that she and I should at least be civil to each other and we should work together to try to get kyle and summer to reconcile.

Jack: Uh-huh. And…

Diane: And she refused! She said that she promised summer she wouldn’t get involved, but you know what? I think there’s more to it than that.

Jack: Like what?

Diane: Like maybe she doesn’t want them to get back together. Maybe she thinks that summer is better off without kyle because of me.

Jack: Don’t hate me, but if that’s the case, and I don’t think it is, I agree with phyllis.

Diane: What?

Jack: I think she has a point. We have no business getting involved in their breakup. We can care about them, we can care about their child, but they have to handle this themselves.

Diane: But we both know that kyle still loves summer and that they belong together.

Jack: And they will work it out if they can, if they want to, but they have to do it, not us. We’re just the parents. We have to stand back and support them no matter which way this goes.

Phyllis: Tucker.

Tucker: I’m considering how much to tell you.

Phyllis: I could just walk away.

Tucker: All right. Billy abbott.

Phyllis: What about billy abbott?

Tucker: Uh… I want you to get me access to his personal finances.

Phyllis: What axe would you have to grind–

Tucker: No, I told you. Why doesn’t make any difference. Besides, why would you care? I know the dynamic between you and billy and I know your history. It’s not pretty.

Phyllis: All right. Well, that’s irrelevant, but thanks for bringing it up.

Tucker: And I can’t think of a reason why you would ever be billy abbott’s ally. And you have the skill to keep your hands clean while you do this for me, do you not?

Phyllis: Why are you going after billy? Why do you want me to hack into his financials? I mean, is it part of a bigger plan?

Tucker: Well, if it is, don’t you want plausible deniability?

Phyllis: Oh, tucker. I have just been through a nightmare. Please.

Tucker: I know. A nightmare that would’ve been much worse were it not for me.

Phyllis: Is it so hard for you to understand that I want to know the consequences? I wanna know what’s going on so I can agree to be a part of this or refuse.

Billy: Hey.

Devon: Hello.

Billy: Thanks for coming. Appreciate it.

Devon: Yeah, man. You said it was important.

Billy: It is. Believe me.

Devon: I imagine the only important thing we have to talk about is tucker.

Billy: Have a seat. Can I get you coffee?

Devon: Sure, yeah.

Billy: Coffee, please.

Devon: So, I am right. Why don’t you, uh, lay it on me. What’s going on?

Billy: Well, first thing’s first. I hate– I hate to do this. I really do, you know. You’re my niece’s partner, I do consider you a friend, so I feel like in good conscious, I have to warn you. I’m afraid your father is out of control again. My active psoriatic arthritis

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Devon: So, out of control, you say? What does out of control mean?

Billy: He’s up to his old antics.

Devon: That could be many things.

Billy: That’s true. Look, I don’t know how much you know about his breakup with ashley.

Devon: I know that they both have their own versions of what happened and they’re very different from each other.

Billy: Well, that’s not surprising. Given tucker’s track record, I’m putting my money on ashley’s version. You know, once jack and ashley made peace, ashley came to a very reasonable conclusion that she did not want to cut ties with jabot and more importantly, with her family.

Devon: Right, and abby said that ashley and tucker were planning on creating a company to compete with jabot, and then ashley changed her mind about it because she said it would be bad business, right?

Billy: Precisely. And yet, as far as what ashley’s saying, tucker went ballistic. You know, she told jack that she had never seen him that angry or that aggressive, which is saying something. He really scared her, devon.

Devon: Yeah, abby, uh, abby mentioned that her mom said that.

Billy: Yeah, well, maybe she didn’t mention everything to abby. I mean, maybe she was trying to protect her a little bit. The point is, if tucker was that threatening to the woman that he claims he loves more than anyone else, it just seems to me that there’s more at stake here, don’t you think?

Devon: More at stake like what?

Billy: Jack and I believe that all of this was a plan on tucker’s end. To exploit ashley of her money and her expertise in order to build himself a new empire, and now that that new avenue has been cut off, he’s coming after jabot on his own.

Devon: Okay. I don’t know about all that, billy. That sounds a little extreme, if you ask me.

Billy: Mm.

Devon: I mean, I think the two of them, you know, had a fight that clearly went further than it should have and I imagine things were said back and forth to each other in the moment and buttons were pushed, but… I mean, why are you sharing your thoughts about this with me?

Tucker: You know, if you’re gonna be this inquisitive, I don’t see us ever getting to a satisfactory compromise.

Phyllis: I’m trying to stay out of prison. Yes, I’m inquisitive.

Tucker: I just don’t see where else you’re gonna get this money you need, you desperately need, to pay back the insurance company before they take legal action. The clock must be ticking, phyllis. Then again, not my problem.

Phyllis: You came to me, tucker.

Tucker: Because I thought you were more pragmatic. That’s all right. It’s not as if you’re the only tech genius in the world. I guess I’ll have to find another one.

Lily: Jill cancelled the ipo. That changes everything.

Devon: Right. And do you know that victor newman is the one who convinced her to do that?

Lily: No, I– I didn’t know that. She told me that a friend had helped her see a better solution. Did jill tell you that?

Devon: Well, when I asked her, she made it pretty obvious and then I saw them both with their heads together inside.

Lily: Okay, so then, you don’t know if it were victor then.

Devon: I mean, it’s– it’s an educated guess.

Lily: Okay, well, I– I wouldn’t be surprised if it were victor. He cares about you. He always has since you were a teenager. Look, devon. Everything that you were worried about is gone now. You were worried about losing control of the company. That’s gone. Even the people you were worried about. Nate, audra, I mean, even billy. They’re all gone. It’s just us. So look, we can streamline operations, you know? I’ll back off and– and– and give you everything that you need to do to run your division how you want.

Devon: And you expect me to do the same thing for you?

Lily: Yeah. We can each run our own operations the way that we see fit. You know, we won’t have shareholders looking over our shoulders. This can finally be the united family business that we’ve dreamed of, if you say yes.

[ Lily exhaling ] Victor.

Victor: Oh, my goodness. Lily!

Lily: Hi. How are you? Good to see you.

Victor: Nice to see you. Please have a seat.

Lily: Thank you.

Victor: My goodness.

Lily: Thank you for working me into your schedule so quickly.

Victor: You bet. So, first of all, it’s very nice to see you.

Lily: You too.

Victor: And I’m sure you’re somewhat curious as to why I decided to sell my private stake in chancellor-winters.

Lily: Yes, I am. And forgive me, but I have to ask, where did this come from?

Victor: Well… I have my reasons.

Lily: I mean, listen, victor. If you have lost faith in me and jill and devon and how we run the company–

Victor: It has nothing to do with that at all. Nothing. The three of you have done a wonderful job.

Lily: Well, thank you, but I’m– I’m confused. I mean, why are you backing out?

What makes a medicare

supplement insurance plan,

Kyle: I had no idea you felt responsible in any way that I got involved with audra. I mean, that’s all on me, summer.

Summer: Well, don’t get me wrong. It doesn’t mean that I forgive you or that I don’t think that it was a foolish, crappy move.

[ Kyle sighing ] Look. Obviously, I wasn’t the biggest fan of audra to begin with after what she did to my brother in london, so I– I’ll just– I’ll be quiet.

Kyle: Well, I’d hardly expect you to wanna be friends with her.

Summer: I don’t know. Maybe some good could come from this though.

Kyle: I’m listening.

Summer: Maybe you could use it as a wake up call?

Kyle: What kind of wake up call?

Summer: I’m just saying, I’m sure it might be a little awkward between you and audra in the office now that things between you are over.

Kyle: Okay, she and i are professionals. I’m hoping that won’t be a problem.

Summer: Even if you are, maybe you should take this as a sign that it’s time to come back to your family’s company. Back to jabot, where you and I both know that you belong.

[ Phone ringing ] Marchetti business calls. Think about it.

[ Kyle sighing ]

Jack: People have interfered in our relationship since we first got together. How much help do you think that has been?

Diane: That is a hardly a fair comparison. Not only did they want us to never get back together, they wanted me gone.

Jack: But we still managed to be together, didn’t we? Because we knew we belonged together. We knew it in our hearts.

Diane: Just like kyle and summer.

Jack: Yeah, that’s right. I don’t doubt that. And if they see it as we do, they’re going to work it out without any help.

Diane: All right. I understand your logic, I do. I just keep hoping that kyle will come to his senses sooner rather than later. You know, quit that job, that insanity with audra and come home, you know? In every sense of the word.

Jack: There’s nothing I would like more. Unfortunately, leaving jabot was kyle’s decision, not mine and I hate the distance it’s created between us.

Diane: Well, it was also his decision to ask summer to move out instead of asking her to stay to try to work through things. Jack, he’s obviously in a lot of pain and he’s not thinking clearly and I– I can’t just sit by and watch him continue to spiral without trying to help him find his way back to himself. And to jabot. And– and to summer.

Jack: I think you can because you know deep down, we can’t make these things happen. We have to trust kyle to work this out on his own. In the meantime…

Diane: What?

Jack: I find myself in desperate need to shift my focus to something easier, happier, less troubled.

Diane: Oh, really? And what would that be?

Jack: Having a nice, quiet meal with my beautiful wife.

Diane: You know what? I fall in love with you all over again every time I hear that word.

Jack: Yeah?

Diane: I do.

Victor: Now, lily, you have been in the business world long enough to know that investors come and go for all kinds of reasons.

Lily: I know, I do, but you’re not any investor. You’re you. So, I have to wonder what your reasons are.

Victor: Fair enough. You recall that I decided to buy stake in chancellor-winters once I found out there was a widening gap between you and devon. I didn’t like that. I know your father would not have liked that, right? So, I stepped in to rectify that, and I think I did, right?

Lily: Absolutely.

Victor: Good.

Lily: And I do thank you for that. I know my father would appreciate it too.

Victor: Besides that, I… have some other reasons having to do with some problems at my company that I need to rectify.

[ Lily exhaling ]

Lily: Okay. Well, thank you for the explanation and thank you for the compliments on how we’re running the company. It means a lot to me.

Victor: You’ve done a wonderful job. Your father would be very proud of you.

Lily: Thank you. I do have one more question.

Victor: Name it.

Lily: I mean, who is this mystery investor that’s taking your place? You know that feeling of having to rewash dishes

Victor: I’m afraid I’m not at liberty to divulge that information.

Lily: Why not?

Victor: Because the investor prefers to keep their identity a secret.

[ Lily chuckling ]

Lily: Yeah, but, I mean, you can’t share it with me or devon or jill? It’s our company.

Victor: Yeah, well, in due time.

Lily: So, I’m sorry. What? You’re gonna share it with us one day? I mean, victor, you have to understand how nerve wracking that is. You just said the company is doing really well. What if this person comes in and destroys all the progress that we’ve made?

Victor: That’s not gonna happen. You’re just gonna have to be patient until the new investor feels that all the contractual fine points have been worked out. Then, they’ll come and introduce themselves to you, okay?

Billy: Look, it’s not my intention to interfere with your relationship with your father.

Devon: Well, what is your intention then, billy? Because you must have had some kind of agenda to want to meet me like this. So, what are you trying to accomplish?

Jack: Damn it.

Diane: What?

Jack: Billy. He’s gone behind my back again.

Tucker: Well, as pointless meetings go, this one’s very memorable. Thank you. Take care, phyllis. Or don’T. Whatever you want.

Phyllis: Wait. Wait. Please, sit down. Sit down, please. I want half of the money right now. Now. Immediately. Then, the other half when I get into billy’s financials. Then, I want out. The rest is on you.

Tucker: Okay. Meet me in my suite in one hour and I will transfer the money to you and you can get to work. Is there anything else?

Phyllis: No, we’re good.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


What are you doing? I’m getting ready for bed. No, no, no, you’re not going to sleep on the chair. It’s okay, I’m fine. Come on. One night in that fleabag motel in Salem is one thing, but you know… We don’t even know where to begin looking for Susan, or if she’s even alive, or in London, so, you know, we could be doing this for a while.

Well, uh, we can only afford one room. And there’s only, uh, one bed, so, we don’t have much of a choice. Yes, we do.

Sleep with me.

You told me that your mother and Michaels came to you for help. And you turned them away. You still want to stick to that story? Where did you get these? Detective Hunter found them in the trash behind your apartment. Seems you were too focused on forging passports and not enough on the follow through.

So, I’m going to charge you with obstruction of justice, and aiding and abetting a felon, unless you give me the names on those fake passports. Now.

May I help you? No, I was just fixing your mouse like you asked me to. By using my phone. Oh, I wasn’t. You left it here and I was going to bring it to you just as soon as this driver update finished. How fruitful. Oh, I see you punched in some numbers on my lock screen. Well, my fingers must have hit the keypad as I picked it up.

Or maybe you were trying to hack into it, and why would I do that? I don’t know. Perhaps you were looking for evidence that I tried to have Ava Vitali killed, and if hypothetically I was doing that, not would I have found any. Why in the world would you think that I slept with Sean Brady? Oh, I don’t know.

Maybe because I ran into Eric downstairs and he thanked me for giving Sean a place to crash last night. Except I didn’t do that. Well, it could be Eric misunderstood. I don’t know. Could be. Except I asked you a question and you answered my question with a question of your own. So I’ll ask you again, yes or no, did you sleep with Sean?

So, where’d you sleep last night? Well, I, uh, I had too many at the pub, as you know, so, um, I slept off upstairs. Really? I was just with Eric and told him how worried I was about you. He didn’t mention you sleeping there.

That’s because I wasn’t with Eric.

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

So if you weren’t with Eric, then where’d you sleep? In Jada’s room. Jada? She wasn’t there. She, uh, she had an overnight shift at the station. And what about her sister? I thought she was staying there too. Talia, she was working late night at the hospital. Hmm. Well, I guess I’m, uh, just glad that you found somewhere safe.

Yeah. Do you have any idea how worried I was about you when I didn’t hear from you? I mean, you didn’t answer my calls, you didn’t return my texts. Listen, Belle, I am so sorry that I put you through that. I am. I… And I’m also, I’m sorry, I’m sorry about the things that I said last night. The things I remember and…

There’s some things that I don’t. What do you remember? I remember throwing your affair with EJ in your face, and, and that was, it was, it was unfair and it was wrong. Bella, I don’t deserve you. Don’t say that. We both made mistakes, and we’re gonna get through this together, okay? We just, we can’t let anything or anyone get between us ever again.

That’s insane! I barely even know Sean. Okay, but you do know that I’m a detective, right? Eric told me that he saw Sean coming downstairs earlier. And when I came in here, you were changing the sheets. And you can’t even look me in the eye and give me a yes or no answer.

Okay, yes, fine, you call me, okay? Yes, I slept with Sean. Are you happy now?

You want me to sleep with you? Sleep. In the bed. Next to me. Just sleep. I know you’re one of those chivalrous military guys, so I know you’ll be a perfect gentleman. I, uh… I appreciate the offer, but I prefer the chair. Wow, should I be insulted? Well, if you ever slept on a submarine wreck, you would understand.

It actually feels kind of nostalgic. Okay, well, suit yourself if you insist. And don’t worry, if one of EJ’s goons try to get in, You’ll be safe.

I walk in on my employee man handling my phone. Woman handling. And somehow you turn this into an inquisition about my behavior. Have you ever heard of consciousness of guilt? Yours? No, yours. You walk in on me, woman handling your phone, and… You just assume that I’m here trying to prove that you attempted to commit murder?

I mean, seems pretty telling to me. You certainly aren’t pardoning. I’ve been called worse. Well, I’ll have you know I set up a trap and you walked right into it. A trap? All those questions about Ava’s disappearance. Not exactly subtle, Wendy. So I left you alone in my office with my phone and let you hang yourself.

Which you have done with all due respect. You’re my boss, Mr. DiMera. The last thing I want to do is incur your wrath or ill will. And yet this wouldn’t be the first time you’ve been caught snooping around my office. Why would I even care if you had anything to do with what happened to Ava Vitale? I don’t even know her.

But you know her son quite well, don’t you? I can only assume your boyfriend Tripp put you up to this.

Fake passports. I have no idea what you’re talking about. Let’s not play around, Tripp. It’s obvious your passports were used to make dummy ones so your mom and Michaels could flee the country. Good luck proving that. Oh, I’ll prove it. I’ll prove it all right. And I’ll find Ava. The only question is whether or not you’re going to go down with her.

Or are you going to tell me where the hell she is?

No, I am not happy, Talia. I am not happy that you slept with my partner. I mean, what the hell were you thinking? I wasn’t, okay? I was drunk. I just don’t get it. When I saw you earlier at the hospital, you were so happy about your new job. You said things were going great with you and Chanel. Yeah, and that was before she dumped me to get back with her ex, Johnny DiMera.

What the

special delivery.

How do you know my mom and Nichols didn’t swipe those passports themselves? Right. Yeah. And forged new passports, new identities, new holographic seals in the alley? No. I don’t think so. See, what I think is that there was someone who had the tech savvy to forge those passports. And who also happened to be the owner of one of those passports.

Yeah. Wendy Shin. I understand you two are dating. No, you leave Wendy out of this. Oh, no, no, no, no, no. Sorry I can’t do that, Tripp. You see, since you can’t seem to stop obstructing my investigation, I’m gonna have to haul Wendy in here and get the truth out of her.

Oh. You’re upset that I dumped your son for Tripp. And now you’re gonna punish me for it. On the contrary, I think Johnny’s quite fortunate to be rid of you. You, however, are not fortunate at all. Having left him for a man who’s too weak to do his own dirty work. I came for your information trip, didn’t even want me to…

So you admit what you were up to. Okay. Let’s just lay our cards on the table. You first. You blame Tripp’s mother for your mom’s death. You wanted revenge. Who else would have hired a hit woman to pose as a nurse, infiltrate Bayview, and attempt to commit murder? Do you know how many enemies Ava Vitale have?

Oh, but none of them is the lawyer representing said hit woman. Presumably so she won’t turn on you to the police. Everyone is entitled to a defense. What, so this wimpy assassin just happened to call you, of all people? Did you get your name off of Best Lawyers in Salem website? Wait, why would you even be on such a list?

You haven’t practiced law since… when? I offered my services pro bono. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Mr. DiMera? Nobody believes you’re innocent in this. How could they? But the past is of no concern to me. I’m worried about the future. I’m assuming you still have a hit out on Trip’s mom. I’m here to tell you, that is a big mistake.

And why

is that? Because Nobody did. What are you talking about? Your mother is still alive.

Is this some sort of special occasion I don’t know about? Do you remember? I promised to take you to the Rose Garden in Florence this summer after we got married. Yeah, I do. Well, I’m determined. We’re going next summer, but in the meantime, I figured I would bring the Rose Garden to you. Our time in Italy is the happiest I’ve ever been.

Me, too.

What’s wrong? Oh, boy. Oh, no, don’t tell me that you’re allergic to these. Not only in large quantities. Okay, you know what? I’m getting rid of them. I’m sorry. Oh, don’t you dare. Okay, I just need to take it. My histamine. Are you sure? Uh huh. Just give it a couple minutes to kick in. Okay, well, I hope you’re not allergic to these.

Ah, cannoli. Yeah, I would have got them from Sweet Bits, but I figured that would kind of ruin the surprise, so. We, um, we actually stopped selling them ever since Talia left. They were kind of her specialty.

Are you okay? Uh huh. Why? Well, it’s just you’ve… You made kind of a weird face just now when you mentioned Talia.

Look, are you sure about this? I mean I’m sure. I want to be with you, Johnny. It’s just I, I feel like I’ve blindsided Talia and, considering that she’s been known to go off the deep end, I just, I’m worried that she might do something rash or stupid.

I’m really sorry to hear about you and Chanel. Yep, me too. But I just don’t understand how you ended up with Sean. I mean, like you said, you hardly even know him. I guess that was the point. Okay, we ran into each other downstairs. And I was clearly hurt about Chanel, and he told me that he got in a big fight with his wife.

So, when the bartender cut us off, we came up here to keep things rolling. And, um, One thing led to another. And if it makes you feel any better, he woke up when he sobered up and he felt terrible. And I did too. I bet he did. I mean, my God, Talia. I mean, Sean is married. I mean, what the hell were you thinking?

You know, his wife got you out of jail. She took you on as a client when nobody else would. Yeah, okay, I remember. Okay, well, did you remember that when you were in bed with Sean? I mean, did she even cross your mind? No, honestly, no, she didn’t. Okay, all I wanted in that moment was to feel better. Look, I screwed up, okay, and really badly.

Sleeping with Sean was stupid and destructive. But I guess that’s not surprising, huh? I guess that’s just a pattern with me. Okay, I, I make horrible decisions and I hurt good people. And I guess that’s never gonna change.

I, I don’t, I don’t know what to say. Except I, I keep thinking that I’m gonna be better. That I’m gonna do better. And, and then, and then, I just, it’s like I can’t seem to break this cycle. Well, I’ve told you what I think you should do. But you don’t seem to want to get the help you need. So, where do we go from here?

You sure you’re okay? If I, uh, told you some of the places that I’ve had to sleep, you wouldn’t be worried right now. I’m not worried. It’s just, I can’t stop thinking that if it wasn’t for me, You wouldn’t be here right now. Nope, I would still be in the friendly confines of a mental hospital. Still. You’re not only risking sciatica, your life is now in danger because of me.

Ava, nobody forced me to run with you. I know. I

guess I… I am worried, because this just reminds me of when, um, When what?

There was a time a while back when, um, I needed a place to stay, and EJ’s brother, Jake, he let me crash at his place, and, uh, there was just one bed, just like here, and, So he ended up sleeping on the floor. Next morning he woke up, he could barely walk, and So I gave him a massage, and uh And what?

And before long we We fell in love.

My mother’s alive. What are you talking about? Tripp’s mother told us she remembered seeing Susan get out of the car after the accident. Oh, right, of course. Ava suddenly remembers several months later that my mother survived. Well, she remembered recently, after all that time in therapy. Oh. So how did you learn this, Wendy?

When did you talk to Ava? I… You saw her after she escaped from Bayview, didn’t you? And I’m guessing you know exactly where she is.

Look, leave Wendy out of this. I stole her passport, she had nothing to do with this. And you forged new passports? It wasn’t that hard. I watched a video on YouTube. Okay, look. I’m not after Wendy, or you for that matter. No, you’re after my mom because you still have some sort of grudge against her. I’m just trying to do my job.

Now, if she acted in self defense and someone out there still wants to kill her, then you should want her brought in here safely. Yeah, so you can bring her back to Bayview. No, so I can get her the treatment that she really needs. Look, you and I both know that EJ is the one who sent that person to kill her.

He’s not going to stop until… Until? Until my mom is dead. Yeah. So you gonna help me or not? Not until I know for sure her life won’t be in danger. You’re saying you know where she is? I didn’t say

that. Okay. I’m gonna have to contact D. H. Rask. So you’re gonna send her after Wendy? You leave me no choice.

You know, Cinema Paradiso is credited with reviving Italy’s entire film industry. Yeah, I remember the first time I watched it. It’s, uh, it’s actually what made me want to be a director. You Passionate about sharing a part of yourself. It’s like you with sweet bits, you know, once you really fall in love with


All you don’t talk like that like making a bad decision is a pattern all you look at me look I am not judging you, okay? You were terribly hurt last night. You’ve been drinking and you did something very reckless.

I mean, you obviously regret it. I just hope that this doesn’t happen again. Right? No, no, of course not. Jada, look, Sean and I, we, we were just using each other. Okay, to lessen the pain that we were both experiencing. It meant nothing, and like you said, it was reckless. That’s why he and I decided to put it behind us and pretend like it never happened.

I tried to get professional help. For like 24 hours. And you said it made a difference, and then you stopped. Yeah, that’s because I thought that I could handle it on my own. And then I realized that… I realize that you’re right. This is, uh, it’s too big of a problem for me to handle by myself. So are you saying you’re ready to get help?

For real? I will go to AA. Yeah, you said that before, and then you didn’t go. Why, you don’t trust me? I want to. Sean, I really, really do. But I, I, I have to see it actually happening before I can believe anything’s gonna change.

I have no idea where Ava is. I mean, it’s not like she was gonna tell me where she was headed.

You know, Wendy, you are very good at your job. But when an employee proves herself to be untrustworthy, that employee has to go. Go where? Please, don’t ship me back to Fairbanks. Fairbanks? Oh, no, no, no. You won’t be working there or any DiMera office for that matter. Wait, are you saying… Yes, I’m definitely saying…

You’re fired.

T. H. Rask, it’s Commissioner Hernandez. Yes, I’ll hold. Please don’t. Don’t make that call. Change of heart? If I tell you… Where my mom and Michael’s are, do you promise to leave Wendy out of this? Well, you’re in no position to be making demands, but If you’re honest with me and your tip pans out I don’t see any reason to go after Wendy

So, where are they?

Oh no! Wait, Johnny, did I fall asleep? Yeah Yeah, you did. I guess you didn’t like the movie as much as I did. No, it’s great. It’s great. I just… I was up at 4 a. m. making dough, and plus the allergy pill. I’m so sorry. No, it’s fine. Hey, you should, you should go to sleep. Yeah, but it’s so early. It’s okay. Alright, I’m not offended.

I promise. Not how you thought that our date was gonna go tonight, huh? With me being a total drip. Hey. You could never be a drip. Besides, we got plenty more dates to go on.

Get some sleep.

You know the worst thing about this is? The thing that keeps upsetting me the most is? I just keep disappointing you. For the millionth time. It’s like I’m making you ashamed of me. No, no, no. I am not ashamed of you, Talia. Okay? Never. You are smart, you’re kind, you work hard, and I am so proud that you are a doctor.

I’m just, I’m just disappointed. I think I’m just disappointed in the fact that this is making you hurt. And yes, I am concerned about Sean and Belle. But you are my sister and my main concern will always be you.

I’m so lucky to have you. We’re lucky to have each other. Mmm.

Well, you should get some sleep. I’ll get out of here and let you get some peace and quiet. Yeah. Oh yeah. You’re gonna find someone that loves you. They’re gonna love you for who you are. Right? So just, just hold out for them, okay? Yeah. Okay.

Wendy, hey, what are you, what are you doing here? I thought you went to work. Well, I did. And then I got fired. What? Why? Okay, I know you told me not to go after EJ, but I had the perfect opportunity to hack into his phone. Or at least I thought I did. Turns out he set me up. You mean he caught you looking through his phone?

Yeah. Wendy, I’m so sorry. Well, you weren’t me, but I’m me, so I didn’t listen. Oh. I mean, I hate this has happened, but I know you’ll find another job. Somewhere where you’ll not be working for a murderous bastard. And somewhere they’ll actually appreciate your talents. I’ll worry about that later. There’s something else you should know.

What is it? I told EJ that your mom thinks Susan’s still alive.

So I assume things didn’t end well between you and Jake DiMera.

I guess you could say that.

The day we got engaged,

he died.

My God, I’m sorry.

And before his body was even cold, I did something incredibly stupid.

I let Gabby Hernandez persuade me into pretending that I was already his wife. Let me guess, for business reasons. Yeah, I got Jake’s boats on the board and that helped Gabby take over DiMera. And when EJ found out, he was none too pleased. Did he come after you? No, he tried to run me out of town. Oh, but I paid him back by kidnapping his mother.

That’s how I got into this whole mess.

And now I’ve dragged you into it with me.

It’s gonna be okay. Is it? Cause you risked your entire life for me.

And I couldn’t handle it if something happened to you too.

You know what? I will prove to you that I’m serious about recovery. Alright, I’ll, I’ll, I’ll go to the movie right now. I’ll call Brady and I’ll ask him to take me. No, he’s not, he’s not around. He and Alex went to Greece to look for information about your grandfather’s death. Greece? Yeah, apparently that’s where Victor was before his plane crashed.

Oh. You’re not upset that they didn’t ask you to go, are you? No, I mean, why would they? Why would they? Because you’re a cop and you’re his grandson? Yeah, but my life is also a big mess. And I’ve got to fix it. So…

Belle, will you go to a meeting with me right now? Of course I will. Thank you for asking me.

Oh, hey, Talia. Sean, bill? Yeah. Hey, how’d it go with Chanel? Chanel? Yeah. Did she like the flowers? Oh, uh, um, I, I don’t know. Chanel and I are seeing each other anymore. What? Yeah, she decided to get back with your nephew, Johnny. Oh God, and I just made it so much worse by bringing it up. I’m so sorry. No, no, please don’t apologize.

You’re the last person who should be sorry.

Son, I thought you had a date. Uh, she and I was tired, so we called it early. How was work? Fantastic. I fired your ex, Wendy. What? Why? I mean, she’s like the best employee you have. I hope it didn’t have anything to do with me. No, as a matter of fact, I caught her snooping at Tripp’s behest, just like she did for you.

Hmm. Snooping for what? She was trying to tie me to the event with Ava at Bayview, which of course I had nothing to do with. Of course, I’m sure. Can you believe she had the gall to advise me to call off the dogs? And then she claimed that Ava suddenly remembered that your grandmother was alive. What? I mean, do you think that could be true?

If only. But I… I don’t see how that could be.

I’m sorry. Okay, I know I wasn’t supposed to say anything, but I realized in that moment if EJ knew Susan might still be alive, she might stop going after your mother. What did he say? He didn’t believe me. Look, Tripp, I know I should have run up on you first. No, it’s okay. It’s okay. I, I was pretty close myself with telling Rafe when he was questioning me.

Wait, Rafe was questioning you again? About your mother? Apparently, the cops went through the garbage behind our building and they found the pages that we ripped out of our passports.

Oh, man. So are we in trouble? I don’t think so. Why not? Because I gave Rafe what he wanted. I told him where my mom and Michael’s are.

Sorry, did I wake you? Not at all. Liar. What’s up? Well, I have a strong lead about the whereabouts of Ava Vitale and Harris Michaels. Oh, you do? I do. So, how would you feel about going with me to London to check it out?

I’m not going anywhere.

And when this is all over, we’re gonna go home to Salem. We’re gonna get our lives back. Both of us. Assuming that, Hm. We don’t get caught by the cops, or EJ kills us. Tomorrow. We’re gonna look for Susie, and we’re gonna be one step closer.

Trust me.


you. Good night, Ava. Good night.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Relaxing music ]

Douglas: I hate seeing you so sad, mom. If you could find a way to give dad another chance, I know we would make a happy family.

Hope: Sweetheart…

Finn: Come on in. Um, you want something to drink?

Li: Oh, no. I’m good, thanks.

Finn: So, um, what brings you by?

Li: What, I can’t come and check on my son?

Finn: No, of course you can. Thanks, it’s, um– it’s good to see you. This– this house has been pretty quiet.

Li: Have you talked to steffy?

Finn: Yeah. Yeah, of course. She’s my wife, I talk to the kids and her as much as possible. I just– I miss ’em so much, it hurts, you know.

Li: Well, to think this is all because of sheila.

Deacon: I’m so, so sorry. We can’t do this.

Sheila: You know what? Your words are saying that, but your body is saying something different.

Deacon: No, no, no, no. Sheila, no. Come on. This is– this is wrong. I gotta–

Sheila: What? Be a good boy?

Deacon: Yes!

Sheila: That’s too bad because I like you so much better when you’re naughty.

Li: How does steffy seem when you talk to her?

Finn: I don’t know. Um… I mean, I wouldn’t– I wouldn’t say distant, but it’s a little tough to gauge. It’s also difficult to have a real conversation when the kids are on the call.

Li: Then you must make time for just you and steffy. You can’t get complacent now, finn. Not if you want the situation to be temporary.

Finn: No, I’m– I’m– I’m not, mom. Okay, steffy knows how much I love her and I know that she loves me too.

Li: Then remind her of that. Make sure she knows that you’ll keep sheila out of your lives, so she feels safe to come home. Finn, you have to know that any contact with sheila right now will drive steffy away for good.

Sheila: Wow.

Deacon: What?

Sheila: You are wow. I do want you to know though, I– I do understand the dilemma, the situation. It– it’s not easy for you.

Deacon: You know, for the first time in a long time, sheila, I’ve got something to lose. But that doesn’t mean I don’t care about you.

Sheila: Yeah, I know. I know you’ve– you have done so much for me time and time again, I don’t even deserve it. And it means so much to me. You mean so much to me.

Deacon: Sheila, if anyone finds out about us, I’m done. I could lose hope. I could lose my daughter.

Hope: What do you say we get out of here, grab a bite to eat?

Douglas: Can dad come?

Hope: Why don’t you ask him yourself? He’s standing right behind you.

Douglas: How long have you been standing there?

Thomas: Just a minute.

Douglas: Heard what I said?

Thomas: Yeah. I don’t deserve such an amazing kid. Thank you for saying what you did. Thank you for believing in me, having faith. I did things in the past and things you shouldn’t forgive me for, but you are somehow able to look past them. I think that’s beautiful. I’m so grateful for you. And to hear you say that I’ve moved past those things, become a better person? You have no idea what that means to me. Come on.

Thomas: Thanks, bud. Hearing you say that, you believe I’ve changed, it means so much to me. You’re my son. Being a father to you is the most important thing in the world. I love you so much.

Douglas: I love you too, dad. You’re a good dad. You’ve changed. I believe it.

Hope: That’s an important lesson to learn in life, right? No matter how old you are that you can be capable of growing and changing situations in your life and yourself. You can find forgiveness.

Douglas: That’s what I asked mommy to do. To find some forgiveness, for you, so we could all be a family.

Thomas: Yeah, look, I promise, I– I didn’t–

Douglas: Don’t worry, dad. I made sure mommy knew that you didn’t ask me to say any of those things. I thought of it all on my own.

Thomas: Yeah.

Hope: Well, of course you did because you are very, very smart.

Douglas: I hate that mommy’s so sad. I know she’s unhappy because liam left. But we can fix that as a family. Right, dad?

[ Thomas chuckling ]

Sheila: Hey, I probably understand better than anyone this relationship that you have with hope. The love and– and connection because that’s what I feel with finn.

Deacon: Okay, sheila, there’s some fundamental differences between your relationship with finn and my relationship with hope.

Sheila: No, you still had to– to fight for that love and acceptance just like I am right now with finn.

Deacon: Okay. That’s– that’s true. But I– I didn’t have quite the uphill climb. I mean, there’s that little incident with you shooting finn and his wife. There’s that.

Sheila: You keep saying that, but it was an accident.

Deacon: Your version of accidents can be lethal.

Sheila: I would never intentionally hurt my son. And one day, he’s gonna realize that. He’s going to know how much I love him. I’m– I’m not walking away from him, deacon. And I don’t think he wants me to. And with steffy gone, out of the picture. I will be in my son’s life.

Li: I don’t blame steffy for leaving. Sheila showing up at your doorstep whenever she feels like it? That has to be terrifying.

Finn: Look, I’ve told her I’ll cut sheila completely out of my life, okay? I’ve– I’ve told sheila the same thing.

Li: She won’t listen to you, finn. You’re a smart man. You’re a doctor for god’s sake. You had to know that opening up to sheila would be completely intolerable to steffy. To make it worse, you gave sheila hope. She now thinks that she has a chance to have a relationship with you.

Finn: I won’t allow it. She got the message. I– I promise you.

Li: Please. She’s never going to walk away from you. No, you have to do something. You have to take matters into your own hands.

Finn: What are you suggesting?

Li: You have to shut her down, finn. You have to do something that guarantees steffy that she will never have to worry about sheila ever again. (Michael) copd is harder on the folks around you, I think.

Thomas: Look, I– I love that you think I can make your mom happy and that we can be a family, right? But mom’s got a lot going on right now, right? So, we don’t want to put any extra pressure on her.

Hope: Oh, it’s all right. Sweetie, it’s all right. I can hear how much this means to you and I would never dismiss that. And I know how much you love your dad and me.

[ Phone dinging ]

Hope: Oh, shoot.

Thomas: You got a meeting?

Hope: Uh, not exactly. I actually was going to stop by my dad’s, but it– it can wait.

Thomas: No, no. You should go. Douglas and I will be fine. Right, bud?

Douglas: Yeah, I’m fine.

Hope: Yeah? Okay. Well, I love you and no matter what happens, we will always be a family, okay?

Finn: What exactly do you mean? I have to guarantee that steffy will never have to worry about sheila again?

Li: Well, you already had one opportunity to let sheila die. You saved her life.

Finn: I had to save her like I would any other patient.

Li: Except sheila wasn’t just any other patient. It was personal. You can’t lie to me, finn. I know you too well because I raised you.

Finn: First, do no harm. That’s what doctors pledge. If I would have let her die, that would have gone against everything that I stand for. That’s how you raised me. It would have made me a monster.

Li: It would have made you a hero. Now, do you want to save your marriage?

Finn: Of course, I want to save my marriage. Like what kind of question is that?

Li: Then, you have to take action. You have to find a way to convince steffy that sheila will never be a threat again because if you don’t, steffy will never come back. You will lose your wife and your children forever.

Sheila: Look, nothing is standing in my way now. With steffy out of the picture, there are no more obstacles.

Deacon: Come on, babe. Didn’t finn tell you that he never wanted to see you again?

Sheila: It’s only because she was standing right there.

Deacon: I think you need to start listening to what he’s saying. Hear him. He’s gonna choose his wife and family over you every time. He loves her.

Sheila: He loves me. We have an unbreakable bond. I could feel it when he held me, when he had me in his arms. I didn’t force him to do that, deacon. He did that because he wanted to because I’m his mother. I can see the love that he has for me every time I look into his eyes. I’m not imagining that.

Deacon: Look. I have no doubt that the guy’s conflicted. I mean, how could he not be? You are his mother. But he’s gonna choose his wife and his family first and you have to know that.

Sheila: No, no, she left, she took the kids and she left. She left him.

Deacon: Because you pushed her away.

Sheila: No, I didn’T. She doesn’t love him the way that she should. Not the way that I do. I– I don’t– I don’t make finn fight for my love and affection the way that steffy does. I can only imagine the pain that finn is feeling this very moment. But he doesn’t have to. He doesn’t have to because he’s got me. He’s got his mother.

Li: You have to fight, finn. You have to fight for your family! Fight for steffy!

Finn: I am trying.

Li: You try harder!

Finn: I am doing everything that I can to get through to her, to convince her to come home. And you know what, I am not gonna give up.

Li: Those are just words, finn. You need to go to her.

Finn: Well, she doesn’t want me to.

Li: And why do you think that is? Because of sheila. You cannot let that woman destroy your life, finn, and she will because she destroys everything she touches! I don’t care if she gave birth to you. She is not your mother. I am. I’m the one who rocked you to sleep and read you bedtime stories. I was the one who took you to your soccer games and wiped your tears when you fell. I’m the one who held you with love and comforted you when you had your first broken heart. I pushed you to be the best man you can be. Pushed you in school. Helped you become an accomplished doctor. That was me.

Finn: I know that, okay? And I would never, ever minimize what you did in my life, okay?

Li: That woman–

Finn: No, listen to me. I love you. You are my mother in every sense of the word.

Li: That woman has zero claim to you. She has zero claim to you and your heart. That love is mine.

Finn: I know. I know that, okay? And I love you. I love you so much.

Li: Then, how can you let her in? How can you even consider an opening for her?

Finn: Mom, I didn’t, okay? I didn’t want her here. I didn’t invite her over when steffy saw her. I had no idea that she was gonna show up, okay? She just came on her own.

Li: You opened the doors with your thank yous and your embraces. Call her mom. She’ll be back. It makes me sick! She will never keep her distance as long as she knows that you love her. So, finn, you have to dig deep in your heart. Dig deep and find that twisted connection you have with her and you cut that cord forever.

Deacon: You okay?

Sheila: Yeah. I’m sorry, I just– sometimes, I– I just, I love finn so much, I get desperate for him to see it. I’m not gonna give up, deacon. I– I’m so close to a breakthrough. I really feel it. He’s so smart and– and he’s– he’s brave and– and talented.

Deacon: Don’t forget trustworthy, handsome, loyal, honest.

Sheila: Is it so wrong for a mother to– to admire the son that she loves more than anything in this world?

Deacon: Admire? Okay, let’s go with that. No, it’s not wrong at all.

Sheila: Come on, you– you admire hope. You respect all the accomplishments that she’s made. Why– why is that so different than what I feel for finn?

Deacon: You’re right. I do love hope. I love her more than anything, which is why I’m not sure that we can keep doing this, sheila. The stakes are too high. If brooke or hope find out about us, they’re gonna have nothing to do with me. And, you know, now it’s like I’ve got something to lose. I mean, I could lose the restaurant. All my life, I’ve been looking for shortcuts, you know? Trying to find the angle. Not this time, not with il giardino. You wouldn’t want me to lose that, would you? Would you?

Sheila: No, of course I wouldn’T.

Deacon: You know, hope’s going through a really rough time right now. She needs me and, you know, I haven’t always been there for her as a father, but I am now and I can’t mess this up. I did– I can’t– I can’t take a chance.

Sheila: So, uh, what are you saying, daddy?

Deacon: I think you know.

[ Knocking on door ]

Hope: Dad? It’s me. Hollis said you were up here.

Deacon: Oh, my god.

Hope: Dad. Are you home?

brook lynn. Ugh. Why haven’t you been returning my phone calls? I have nothing to say to you. What would I say to a family member who blackmailed me and caused me to lose my job? What are you doing, grandma? Oh, I’m doing my homework, james. Homework? Aren’t you too old to be in school?

[ Laughs ] Who told you that? James, a person is never too old to learn. You know, life is like one long journey. There’s always something you can pick up along the way. Like when cody taught me how to tie knots? Look at my slip knot.

[ Chuckles ] Wow! You did this? And cody taught you how to do it? Yeah, when I was at kelly’s with oma. That cody — he’s full of surprises. You know, that wasn’t an empty offer, sasha. You know, we — we turn ourselves in or we get caught, you could end up back in ferncliff. Uh, we can just avoid all that. We could just vanish. And how will that actually work, cody? Gregory, hi. Hi. Everything okay? Yeah. Nothing to worry about. I-I know it’s late, but I was hoping to catch dr. Bronson. Do you know if he’s still here? Let me check.

What’s going on?

I don’t think dr. Bronson

is the right doctor

for your dad. Finn. Hey, look who’s here. Hello, son. Hey, dad. He’s here to see dr. Bronson.

[ Door slams ] Hi. Uh, gabe let me in. Hi. Uh, and what do I owe the pleasure? Your offer of protection — does it still stand? Nina: Charlotte.

[ Knock on door ] Nina. Charlotte. Look who I found.

What’s going on, anna? I thought you didn’t want protection. I just came from the metro court, where someone gained access to my suite. They trashed the room, destroyed my clothes, left me a message on the mirror in lipstick. What kind of message? “You think you got away with it — you didn’T. You think you’re safe — you’re not.” So I guess I’m the target of a personal vendetta. Someone’s toying with me, trying to unsettle me, maybe throw me off my game. Sounds to me like somebody’s trying to get under your skin. They’re succeeding.

[ Voice breaking ] I just feel like the walls are closing in on me, you know? Okay, look, someone burning down my house, that’s — that’s a violation, but it seems… it’s exterior, you know? It’s — it’s kerosene and a match. This is personal. They came into my space, and they touched my things. And I don’t think it’s the first time, because we came back to the suite the other day, and my mail had been moved from one place to another. I know that sounds crazy. It’s a small thing, but I noticed it. It is a hotel. You know, there’s housekeeping. They don’t come every day. Whoever this is, they’ve been there before. No, what scares me is I don’t know how many times. Nina, it’s so good to see you. What are you doing? It’s so good to see you. Oh, my goodness. What brings you by here? There was an incident at our hotel suite. The police are there. Yes, I know. The front desk — they called me to tell me what was going on. I am so sorry that you showed up with all of this going on. It’s okay.

[ Chuckles ] So, what’s the occasion? What brings you here? I just wanted to see papa. I’m glad you did. What did you do today? Where have you been? I was with jake. It was nothing serious, but I thought I should check in with the doctor. Yeah, no, I’m — I’m glad you did. Matter of fact, there was — there was something I wanted to talk to you about. Y-you mind if we have a little conversation before you meet with dr. Bronson? Eh, not at all. Would you check and see if dr. Bronson is available and let me know? Absolutely. So, what’s on your mind, son? I couldn’t help but notice elizabeth seemed to be trying to signal you. I can’t wait to hear what this is about. It’s about how you’re managing your als treatment. That’s w hat we’re doing now?We’re throwing temper tantrums? You know, even toddlers outgrow that phase. In a grown woman — laughable. And by the way, I didn’t do anything to lucy coe she wouldn’t have happily done to me first. Tracy, this isn’t about you and lucy. This is about you and me. We’re supposed to be family. You used me. You — you blackmailed me. You preyed on me where I’m most vulnerable — my love for chase, my fear of losing him, my insecurity about my past with him. Everything I did was for your own good.

[ Laughs ] Yeah? How exactly is me losing my job good for me? He also taught me this. Wow. What do you call that one? It’s an exploding clove hitch. But cody says you have to be careful. If you pull the wrong end the wrong way, the whole knot will just unravel. Like that. Wow! Wow! Looks like you’re on your way to becoming a sailor. That would be super cool. Hey, grandpa, can we go to the stables? Cody promised he’d let me feed the horses. Oh, he, uh — he did, did he? Yeah. We could go tomorrow after school. Well, james, I’m afraid we can’T. Uh, cody’s gonna be away for a while. Where did he go?

[ Sighs ] I wish I knew. You say the word, we’re gone. I’ll work out the details. Cody, we have a car and some cash thanks to sam, but we have no phones, no ids, no internet access. And we’re both escaped mental patients who are considered dangerous. I stabbed you, and you attacked and tied up dr. Montague. I wish I’d done a lot worse to him. Might still yet. No, cody. You cannot get any deeper into this mess. You’ve already thrown your whole life off track for me. Don’t — don’t paint me as some kind of hero, sasha. All right? Things wouldn’t have gotten this bad if I’d just been honest from the start. How were you dishonest?

When cody comes back,we’ll go feed the horses, okay? Okay. All right. What’s your homework, grandma? Oh, I’m learning about the hospital and all the rules and the procedures. I want to learn everything I can so I can help the people in there. You mean like the doctors and nurses? Well, no, not exactly. But I do want to help the patients. Help them do what? Well, like making sure they understand what the doctor says, or if they need help finding their way around the hospital, or just making sure that they’re happy and comfortable and if they need someone to talk to. I think being a doctor would be better. Oh, yeah? So you want to be a doctor when you grow up? No, I want to be a policeman like daddy and grandpa. Oh. Nice.

[ Doorbell rings ] Are you expecting someone? No. Mnh-mnh. That’s nice. Surprise! Sasha, I’ve — I’ve known about gladys’ money troubles for months now. She was neck-deep in the red to selina wu. I, um… I knew that she sold brando’s garage behind your back to settle that debt. What? Wait. You knew? Yeah. And I-I should have told you the whole truth back then. Why didn’t you? The reason that I-I told myself was because you were so dependent on gladys that I didn’t want to cause you any more pain. But if you want to know the real reason, the reason that I really don’t even want to admit out loud… I do.

[ Sighs ] The real reason was I didn’t want to jeopardize my arrangement with selina. She put me in that game to… to steer it, to — to make sure that the players that she wanted would win. And if she wanted someone to lose, my job was to take him out fast or… let them just keep — keep playing and running up a bigger debt. I did it — I did it just for the extra cash. Stable hands don’t exactly make bank, you know? But soon enough, selina made it clear that I didn’t have the option to quit or to talk. So I just… kept quiet. Even long after I knew that gladys was playing you. I’ll just give you a call back if we do end up needing to see dr. Bronson. Thanks, amy. This is your private business, dad. And the way you choose to manage your disease, it’s — it’s entirely up to you. Finn, it’s become increasingly clear to me that nobody manages als. I’ve stopped driving, and all too soon, I’ll stop walking, and then I’ll stop eating and then talking. And finally, I’ll stop breathing. But your quality of life between now and then, the way you handle your symptoms, the way you work around your limitations — you have options, dad, options… I don’t think you even know about. I feel like it’s a warning. Somebody just wants to leave me with absolutely nothing. They destroy my house and then… the new clothes that I bought. Did you check the hotel surveillance? ‘Cause they have to have a recording of the halls, the elevators, and the lobby. That’s the thing. Valentin went straight to security, but there’s nothing. What do you mean, nothing? The footage is missing. Is that what valentin told you? Jake and I scootered over to the promenade at the court’s lane waterfront. Since I was close, I thought I’d visit papa. Do you guys want to see something cool?

[ Laughs ] Yeah. Jake almost fell into the fountain. And in this one, I dared him to eat all the boba from the tea. Oh.

[ Chuckles ] Wait, I’m not interrupting your work, am I? Oh, no, no. I was just, uh — I was doing a little research. I want — I want to actually put it out of my head, and I’m hoping never to see it again. Where are you going?

You never struck me as the kind of guy to rewrite history, cody. I’ve been known to when it works to my own advantage. And what’s the advantage of making yourself look bad? That’s not how I remember things at all. From what I remember, you were always warning me about gladys. You told me not to trust her, and I refused to listen. That’s because I never told you the whole truth. I-I knew that gladys was betting way more than she could afford. I figured she was dipping into those accounts that she was supposedly managing for you. Really, she was just managing them for herself. But I didn’t want to cross selina, so I just kept my mouth shut and covered my own ass until it was almost too late. What made you change your mind? Lucy, scott, come on in. -Thank you. -Yeah, thank you. Lucy, uh, no pine valley cops out there waiting in the bushes for you, are there? Mac! No. Very funny. Just us gamesters for you. Oh, come on in. It’s good to see you both. But what brings you here? Well, lucy’s, um — she’s a little down in the dumps, so I-I thought maybe I’d bring a little hooch and maybe, you know, game night might cheer her up. Ooh, I love games. What are we playing? Sorry, charlie. Only for adults. I am not charlie. Oh, you wouldn’t like these games. How about we go read a story? It’s a little bit after your bedtime anyway. Okay. Okay. Well, go tell everybody good night. Good night, grandpa and lucy and charlie.

[ Laughter ] Good night, champ. Night. Well, come on in. Have a seat. Brother, what’s with kids today? Thanks. They don’t know that expression, “sorry, charlie”? Geez. Come on. Nobody under 40 knows “sorry, charlie.” I bet you listened to 8-track tapes as you drove over. Yeah, I did. I was listening to — lucy, I gather we’re here, um, to cheer you up over your deception lawsuit. Shh! No. Quiet. Zip it. I don’t want that mojo out there, okay? Really. Come on. I just want to have laughter and fun with friends and play some games, really. Although that prospect seems a little dismal because my life is crumbling around me. Oh, hey, lucy, everything’s gonna be all right, I-I promise you. Just — just try — hey. Here, pick a card. Would you stop? Those are just words right now, okay?

[ Sighs ] Okay. Look. Elise, she’s a top-notch attorney. She’s on the case, okay? You have nothing to worry about. You’re supposed to, you know, unwind a little. Ooh, I think I might have some gummies in my pocket. But, you know, lucy, for crying out loud, there’s nothing you can do about it anyways. Uh, yeah, aside from killing tracy quartermaine. Yeah, well, you’re gonna have to get in line. Let’s hear it. How is dragging me into corporate espionage against my friends for my own good? I never should have trusted you. Of course you should trust me. Everything I did was for you. What? You should be thanking me, not sulking. You know what, tracy? You’re right. I should be thanking you. Look, I know you don’t trust valentin, but we were together when we discovered the mess in the suite. Like, we’d just come from the hotel restaurant, and so we were together the whole time. Yeah. Okay. But that doesn’t prove his — his innocence, because he could have, you know, excused himself to make a phone call, went to his room and — or paid somebody to do it. No, I… I — I don’t think so. Okay. I don’T. I mean…

[ Sighs ] I am aware of his shortcomings, as are you. Mm-hmm. But that hasn’t stopped you from taking advantage of his assistance in business, has it? Absolutely. But we do have to thank, uh, valentin for bringing pikeman into our lives. Nina, why are you in this office? Aren’t you usually on the fifth floor? Uh, charlotte, I think, um, it’s getting a little late to head back to dante and sam’S. Maybe you could spend the night at nina’S. That’s a — that’s a great idea. Uh, yes, I would love that. It could be a girls-only sleepover, and we could catch up. I have missed you so much, charlotte. I would love that. It’ll be like that time we had the blackout and camped out in the living room.

[ Laughs ] Oh, do you remember that? Charlotte was saying all those ghost stories she heard at lila’s kids camp. Until papa got scared. No, I remember being worried you were gonna get scared.

[ Laughs ] Papa, sometimes I don’t think you know me very well. Okay, so I will just shut this down and I’ll grab my stuff and I’ll meet you downstairs in the lobby. Deal. Get it off the server.

[ Door closes ]

So, what are theseother options, finn? Treatment options? No, more along the lines of something a little more holistic, and to that end, I thought we might check out some other neurologists. Why? Is something wrong with dr. Bronson? No. No, not at — not at all. He’s, uh — he’s highly respected and has made significant contributions to research, but… well, uh… I-I think elizabeth articulated this better than I ever could. Dr. Bronson seems to concentrate on treating general symptoms, not focusing so much on the — on the patient, you. Right? And I-I really think you deserve a doctor that will help you live life to the fullest, not one that’s just predicting when everything is gonna fail. So is this what all the looks between you and elizabeth were about? No.Did — did she put you up to this? No. No, not — not at all. No. No? Unh-unh. What if I ask her directly? Oh! Uh… elizabeth, I understand you have reservations about my doctor? Uh, um… dad, we, uh — we both do, and — and I am grateful to elizabeth for raising the question. Gregory, I am so sorry for overstepping. We both just think there’s a better neurologist out there for you, and I’d like your permission to go find them. Lucy: I have a great idea. I lure tracy into the quartermaine crypt with that stinky, smelly cheese she likes, right? Then I seal her in completely — that rat no one will miss — and then she’s already buried. Lucy, don’t talk that way. Thank you. Shh, mac, okay? All right, I think tracy’s too clever for that. We might be better off putting something in her drink. Yes! Well, she — she does like her cognac. Uh, yeah, but I have to see her face when I do it. Uh, hello? No one is offing anyone. Police commissioner, remember? Uh, yeah, but you’re being a very old fuddy-duddy. Mm-hmm. You want to keep it down out here? Bailey lou and james are asleep. Oh, yes. I have kids. Thanks, mom. Sorry. And whatever you’re talking about is way too gruesome for game night. You should be ashamed of yourself, fantasizing about ending someone’s life. Excuse me, but you know that tracy quartermaine has been a thorn in my side my entire life, almost. Yeah, and she cost me a close friend and my business. I might not even be able to keep this house if deception goes under. You are two of the most brilliant, tenacious, inventive women I know. If the worst happens, you will pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and you will find yourself another successful endeavor. Mom, you can’t possibly think it’s that easy. Nothing in life is that easy, maxie. Yeah, and it wasn’t easy the first time we did it. We put deception on the map, and the deceptor was our baby. And now tracy is threatening to let all of it go down the drain unless we give her 75% of our company. Yeah, and I did get a much better offer out of her. But, you know, that smug look on tracy’s face was — I’m sorry. W-what? You got a better offer? When were you gonna tell me this? That was fast. You’re thanking me? Yes, tracy. You’re right. You know, moving in with chase has provided me with an entirely new perspective on everything. You blackmailed me into going back to deception, and I was obligated to lucy and sasha and especially maxie. I would have done everything in my power to keep deception afloat. But now, because of your spiteful lawsuit, I have been released from that obligation. So now I am free to pursue my number-one passion full-time. I’m going back to music. Absolutely not. Music was your father’s downfall. I will not let that happen to you. Oh, yeah? What are you gonna do to stop me? You have no more blackmail leverage on me. Chase knows everything, and he fully supports me. That’s all that matters to me. Listen to me. No, tracy. I am done listening to you. You know, I hope deception was worth it because it just cost you your granddaughter. At the pool, when I felt the knife and I… turned to see you, I saw in your eyes something terrible. That wasn’t you, sasha. I knew that something else had taken control. There’s no way you would have stabbed me unless you weren’t in your right mind. And I knew that you couldn’t have lost your mind so fast or so completely unless someone else had drugged you. I knew in my gut you had been set up, and I knew I had to do something about it. Sasha, there are a lot of things in my life that I’m not proud of, but I knew that I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I didn’t at least

try to help you. Thank you, cody. You did more than you know. Don’t thank me yet. We’re not out of the woods.

[ Chuckles ] Well, you got us this far. And, honestly, I am… so thankful for the rescue. But I’m even more thankful that you believed in me. This is gonna be so much fun.

[ Chuckles ] I just hope the power stays on. Oh, well, don’t you worry. I have plenty of candles. And I have a whole new batch of ghost stories. Okay. So, uh, why don’t i get you settled in the guest room, okay? I’ll be right in. Okay. Anna, it’s valentin. I just want to give you a heads up that I’ve taken charlotte to stay at nina’s for the night.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Valentin? Yeah. Should have taken the call. Could be great news. I’ll talk to him later. There’s something else I want to address with you. I’m all ears. The shooting at the pool. Mm-hmm. The bullets we dodged. Mm-hmm. I think they were meant for you, not me. Oh? Yeah. So these recent events, right — the burning of my house, the message on my mirror — those are aimed at me, specifically at me. Right? Right. So now, this shooting at the pool — that is a public attack. There’s a mismatch in psychological profiles, which leads me to believe that we are dealing with two distinct and conflicting motives. Two — two different perpetrators. That’s what I think, because the dichotomy of the patterns — that’s what convinces me. Okay, so are you telling me… that the shooting was a warning from pikeman? And possibly the wsb.

and you turned it down. Did — did you even think about telling me they made you that offer? Yeah, but — but I would have had to surrender my 1% of elq. Oh! O-okay. Maxie, she can’t do that! This is like a smorgasbord for lucy. Nobody asked for your opinion, scott. And you firing perfectly good attorneys, turning down secret deals, making choices all by yourself? You should be running these things past maxie, lucy. You’re partners. Well, not everything, mac. I mean, look at lucy. She’s got nothing going on. That is not helping. Shush. Please! Listen, this is separate. This is totally separate. But it’s totally fine if I, I don’t know, lose my house? No! Can we just take this down a notch, please? I have put everything I have on the line for deception. And — and by the way, didn’t you get that 1% from alan? Don’t you say alan. You know I hate that. Now you sound like tracy quartermaine. Do I really? I don’t think so. This is getting us nowhere. Hey! This game is really loud. Could you play something else? Thank you both for thinking about this and, uh, looking out for me. Elizabeth, you could never overstep. I hereby give you my permission to find a different neurologist. I’ll see whoever you recommend, finn.

[ Sighs ] Thank you, dad. I mean, after all, you are a highly respected diagnostician who has made significant contributions to research. So how could I not trust your judgment? Exactly. Yeah, listen, I, for one, am grateful. No, I’m the one who’s grateful to you both for your perspectives and for speaking up.

[ Pager beeps ] Oh, excuse me. Uh, sorry, I have to go authorize the release of some labs. All right? I’ll be right back, dad. A new doctor may not make much of a difference, but if it helps finn, gives him a sense of control, then I’m all for it. Mostly, I am grateful to you for supporting him. I’m so glad he has you in his life. Finn. Ah, can’t tell. A-are you the cat or the canary? Don’t ask. Canary. I need a level 5 backgammon game to forget about this one. Oh, I need a win. Do you? Well, you know, you might be disappointed. I’ve picked up a few new tricks. No kidding? Mm-hmm. Have you been bingeing videos of “double six” king kyle? Hmm, now that you mention it, but don’t knock it, he’s got some excellent strategies. What’s your father doing here so late? Guess that means we’re not disappearing. Let’s see what sam and dante come up with first. All right, well, in that case, I say we call it a night. Let’s rest up for whatever comes next. You take the bed. And where do you plan to sleep? I’m actually getting pretty fond of my chair here. She’s a lot nicer than she looks. No way! We’re gonna have to come up with a different plan tonight. Anna, are you trying to tell me that there’s a link between pikeman and the wsb? I think it’s possible. I wanted you to be fully informed so that you can just take into consideration all the possibilities that that represents. Thanks for the heads up. You have to be vigilant. We both do. I’m gonna — I’m gonna beef up my security. I’m gonna do the same for you, get you protection, the whole thing, and then you won’t even know they’re there. Oh, I’ll know. But thank you. You just gotta be careful, because whoever’s after you is not gonna stop any time soon. I just wish I knew what they wanted from me. I am sorry that I haven’t found us a house yet, one where we can all live. You and me. And anna. Yeah. You and me and anna. I hope it happens soon, papa. I miss you, and I want us to be together more than ever. I’ll see you in the morning. I love you. I love you, too, papa. Thank you for letting her stay the night. Oh, yeah, of course. I love having her here. I don’t want her near anna. I don’t — I don’t want her out of my sight. Yeah, I know. I know. There are a lot of questions. We know that she went into the suite, but there are no cameras inside the suite, so we don’t know exactly what happened. I don’t know how to begin to handle this. I am swimming. Okay. Okay. How about this? Why don’t you go — go back to anna, okay? But remember this — no matter what happens, I’m here for you. And I’m here for charlotte. It’s gonna be okay. I’ll see you in the morning. Okay.

My dad’s schedule is anyone’s guess. You’ll have to ask him. But if you’d like some cathartic backgammon tomorrow, just let me know. Maybe I’ll let you win.

[ Both laugh ] Good evening, tracy. You’re here awfully late. Ah, yes. For a very boring board meeting. And that was followed by my granddaughter insulting me. I could use a drink. Well, it’s probably not what you had in mind, but can I offer you a soda to lift your spirits? A-are we back to killing me with kindness again? It was just a thought. You’re welcome to decline. No. Far be it from me to respond to kindness with rudeness. I would be delighted to take you up on your offer. After you. Finn. Tracy. Dad.

[ Sighs ] You know, when I see my dad in his element like this, you know, all wit and charm, it seems like everything is normal. And then I think about what’s to come. You’re doing the best you can for him. That’s all that you can do. I wish I had the words to tell you how much it means to have you with me while I go through this. For you, tracy. Thank you. Ginger ale. Well, I’ll just pretend it’s a whiskey ginger.

[ Sighs ] Are you all right? Uh… no. No, actually, I’m not, tracy, and… it’s about time you knew. I’ve been diagnosed with als. Gregory, no. I… I don’t know what to say. Sorry, james. Come on. Let’s go back to bed. I’ll tuck you in. I’m right behind you. You know, lucy, I never thought you would be so selfish. Maxie, I —

[ Sighs ] Well… oh, hang on, lucy. Hang on a second. Wait a minute. Take it easy. Take it easy here. So much for our quiet night. Poor maxie. She’s lost so much in her life. I’d hate to see her lose this, too. She’s worked so hard. So has lucy. Is this like karma? Well, if karma was a thing, you’d be the queen of england. And you have always been my knight in… tarnished armor. You know, lucy, things are gonna work out. They always do. This isn’t right. We should switch. Cody?

[ Snores ]

[ Whispering ] Good night, cody. I’m not gonna be able to make it home tonight. What’s going on? Valentin asked me to take charlotte tonight because someone broke into anna’s suite. Yeah, that’s what anna said. She said he, um, went into the metro court to check the surveillance video, and it was missing. Now, I’m trying to figure out how someone got in there to remove the video. Yeah, it’s — it’s very unsettling that someone was able to bypass all the security measures at the metro court. Well, it must have been a professional or somebody with a lot of help. Anyway, I’m gonna miss you tonight. Sonny, I will miss you, too.

Have fun with charlotte. Good night. Good night.

Sharon: How’s it looking?

Mariah: Uh, really, really scary. The weather report has all of these crazy colors and I don’t really understand what any of it means, but it seems to spell impending doom.

[ Sharon chuckles ]

Sharon: Okay, I trust your assessment.

Mariah: Now, I’m really glad that your trip to the west coast got postponed because I would not want you flying in this.

Sharon: Well, I’m a little disappointed.

Mariah: Because you’re spending the night with me? Yeah, that makes sense.

Sharon: No, that could never make me sad. I’m just disappointed I didn’t get to meet with the west coast division heads of kirsten incorporated and get them excited about the future of the company. I’ve set up video calls with them in the morning. Right now, that will have to suffice.

Mariah: That is excellent executive planning.

Sharon: Well, thank you.

[ Sharon chuckles ] The good news is I get to spend the evening checking in with you. How are you? How’s aria? Have you followed up after your first appointment with the audiologist?

Mariah: Yes, we actually have an appointment with dr. George tomorrow morning where she’s supposed to do more tests with aria and tessa was supposed to be there, but because of the weather, who knows?

Sharon: Okay, so you’ll probably know much more after that.

Mariah: Yeah. Depending on the results of the tests, they will be able to confirm a diagnosis. And then they’ll decide, you know, whether they can fit her with hearing aids. You know, if they think they’re actually going to help her. You know, tessa should really, really be there. You know, we want aria to feel double the love and double the protection.

Sharon: I’m sure she already does. Have a little faith. And the night’s not over. Things could still turn out exactly the way you want them to.

Tucker: Good evening, phyllis.

Phyllis: Tucker. Alone, I see. And then you asked heather for a good attorney. So, that doesn’t spell good tidings for you and ashley, does it?

Tucker: Are you going to offer me some comforting words?

Phyllis: I’d feel bad for you, but then I remember your proverbial hands around my neck, withholding carson, threatening my future, so no.

[ Tucker chuckles ]

Tucker: And yet, look at you now. Drinking martinis free and easy. So things all worked out.

Phyllis: What happened with ashley? What did you do to make her dump you?

Billy: I’m just glad that abby was able to get a hold of ashley. She’s worried about our sister, but now we know she’s okay.

Jack: Yeah, it’s a relief to hear from ashley, but hearing her describe her fight with tucker was infuriating.

Billy: Well, he’s a son of a bitch that’s hurt her more than once. And he’s a genuine threat. Before we talk next steps, jack, did ashley mention whether she believes her marriage to tucker is over for good or not?

Jack: Oh, I don’t see how they could come back from this. She thought he had changed, he clearly had not. He revealed his true colors.

Billy: My opinion, he did that a long time ago, but yes, I’m glad that this happened now, before they were able to start their marriage together.

Jack: We have to figure out what he may be planning and how we’re going to minimize the threat.

Billy: He’s come after jabot before, he’ll do it again. Or he may target our entire family out of revenge.

Jack: With someone like tucker mccall, it’s anyone’s guess what his next move is. I’m jonathan lawson

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Mariah: Okay, I need to talk about something else. So, let’s talk about the company. It’s amazing! You and nick are going to be working together. You know, that’s awesome.

Sharon: I think so too.

Mariah: I am much more comfortable moving forward with this configuration. I mean, working for you and nick as bosses? Fabulous. Working under adam? Yeah, that was going to be a tough one.

Sharon: It does feel like a huge weight has been lifted now that adam’s not in the equation anymore.

Mariah: You and nick compliment each other.

Sharon: I think we do.

Mariah: So, uh, how is he doing on his trip? Have you talked to him?

Sharon: He checked in earlier. It’s been a huge success. The divisions are really excited about having new leadership, especially ones that are attentive, visionary.

Mariah: So, now that the dust is settling, I mean, do you have any plans moving forward. Uh, what do you want to do?

Sharon: Well, I’ve had to readjust the plans, but, um, I have so many ideas.

Mariah: Tell me.

Sharon: Okay, well, I’d like to streamline the company. I think we should focus on using the technology that kirsten creates to help other companies who need it. Like schools or medical clinics, nonprofits, even entities like new hope.

Mariah: That sounds amazing. Gosh, I’m so excited to start work. Can I? Soon, please?

Sharon: As soon as nick gets back, we’re going to finalize everything. We were all set on the office spaces, but that got put on hold because of all the chaos with newman, so once that gets back in order again, we’ll get you all set up.

Mariah: Okay, well, moving on from work, how is chance?

Sharon: Um, we saw each other earlier.

Mariah: Look at you! There it is! That very, uh, chance-related smile.

[ Sharon laughs ]

Sharon: He drove me to the airport. That was before I realized that my flight had been delayed.

Mariah: Okay, so caring, attentive, built. How perfect is this guy?

Sharon: Well, I do think I may have some competitione he’soncerned.

Mariah: What? How? I mean, who are you talking about?

Sharon: I’m just sensing that someone else may have a growing attraction to chance. Summer.

Summer: Hey, you.

Daniel: Hey.

Summer: Looks like we’re both having restless nights.

Daniel: It would appear that way. Can I buy you a drink?

Summer: Uh, yeah. I accept. Could I get a dirty vodka martini, please? Thanks. So, how is lucy?

Daniel: She’s good. She’s great. Yeah. Her and her mom are going back to lisbon tomorrow though. I guess heather needs to get back there for work.

Summer: My god. You must be so bummed.

Daniel: Mm. Yeah, I’m going to see them for breakfast tomorrow, but after that, I have no idea when the next time is I’m going to see my daughter.

Summer: Ah, that must be a terrible feeling, I– I don’t even know what I would do if kyle just left the country with harrison. I don’t– I don’t think I could handle it.

Daniel: So, nothing’s changed in that whole situation, I’m taking it.

[ Summer sighs ]

Summer: Now, we’re in process with the divorce. But hey, mom has backed off. She’s not trying to force me and kyle back together, so, I mean, that is good.

Daniel: That is good, that is great. Same for heather and me. Yeah. I mean, not that anything could ever happen between us, with us on different continents, or that it would, for that matter, ever, you know?

Summer: Mm.

Daniel: I’m worried about you. With everything?

Summer: I mean, divorce is awful, but, uh, yeah. I actually am surprisingly okay. Kyle moved on and I’m moving on and I’m ready for my next adventure.

Daniel: Mm. What kind of adventure are we talking about? Is it a romantic one?

Jack: Much as I hated the idea that tucker and ashley got married, a part of me was hoping they would ride off in the sunset and bring some calm back here.

Billy: I guess the only upsides of the situation is that ashley is free of tucker’s grip. And that she’s coming back to jabot.

Jack: Remotely, for the near future. Uh, she’s going to stay abroad and try to clear her head. It– it took her almost separating herself from this family to get to this point.

Billy: On her honeymoon, no less. You know, jack, no one would blame you for still being angry at her.

Jack: Why, because of the hell she put diane and me through?

Billy: Is it really gonna be that easy to forgive her? I mean, yes, she’s come to her senses, but she said and done some pretty hurtful things to you.

Jack: Yeah, ashley is good at that, but I attribute most of her recent behavior to tucker’s hold on her. Besides, she and I had a pretty amazing conversation as brother and sister before they took off for paris. It was a genuine rapprochement.

Billy: Well, it helps that diane saved her from choking to death. I mean, you owe someone your life, you can change your perspective pretty quickly.

Jack: I think that shook ashley to her core, made her see her whole life in a different way. And I’d like to think the conversation we had brought her closer to realizing tucker for who he really is and walking away.

Billy: Jack, you’ve always done your best to keep our family close and not play favorites and blah, blah, blah, but the truth is you and ashley, you have something special. Love-hate, sure. But special. I’ve always admired your ability to forgive and forget. Me, it’s not so easy. I tend to hold on to things I guess there’s a part of me that actually enjoys it.

Tucker: I’m not discussing ashley with you.

Phyllis: Ooh, that bad?

Tucker: There’s some other things I’d rather talk about. Actually 2,000,000 things.

Phyllis: That sounds like a setup to a joke.

Tucker: $2,000,000. That’s the insurance claim payout on your death, right? The money that stark hid somewhere.

Phyllis: How did you know that?

Tucker: And since you were not dead, at least not on the outside, I assume the insurance company’s clamoring for a payback. Which would put you in a bit of a pickle, no?

Phyllis: Why are you interested and why are you worried about me? You shou– you should be picking up the shattered pieces of your marriage.

Tucker: Have you found out where stark funneled the money? Along with half your life savings, correct?

Phyllis: I’m working on it.

Tucker: Uh-huh.

[ Tucker chuckles ] That’s what I figured. You’re nowhere close. So, what if you and i struck a deal? My a1c was up here; now, it’s down with rybelsus.

Daniel: Do you think you’re ready to start dating again?

Summer: Oh, yeah, ’cause I’m just dying to jump from one relationship to another one.

Daniel: I said dating, you said relationship.

Summer: You know what, I’m– I’m just getting over the grief for my break up with kyle and it’s taken me a while. My emotions have been all over the place, so…

Daniel: Yeah, well, it sucks, you know, knowing exactly what went wrong. But since time travel isn’t a thing, I guess you can’t really go back and fix it now, can you?

Summer: True, thank you, yes. You can’t go back and fix it, so I guess it wasn’t meant to be.

Daniel: Are you sure? You know, that you and kyle are really– you guys have come back from so much in the past. I mean, look at lily and me.

[ Summer sighs ]

Summer: No, I’m– we’re done. There’s no coming back from it.

Daniel: Okay. Well, I’m sorry.W, forward it is.

Summer: I mean, it’s gonna be awhile before I’m ready to… dive into another love story. I mean, even a hint of an attraction that I feel right now… scares me.

Daniel: So, you’ve had feelings for someone then?

Summer: Oh.

Daniel: Is it someone I know?

Summer: Sometimes, it’s just friendship. You know? Or it’s, um, gratitude, relief that I actually have somebody to talk to that’s not going to judge me. But other times… it’s more. And I find myself wondering… why is everything better when I’m talking to him?

Daniel: To who?

Summer: Ch– chance.

Daniel: Chance? Chance. Chance.

Summer: Shh!

Daniel: Chance, the cop who was after our mother.

Summer: He was just doing his job. And, you know, he was really nice about it given all the secrecy that was going on.

Daniel: Yeah, I guess you were relying on him a lot.

Summer: I was. And he was really fair and compassionate with me when, let’s face it, I was seriously bending the law.

Daniel: Mm. That’s true.

[ Summer sighs ] Isn’t he with sharon?

Summer: That is the part that I hate about this the most.

Daniel: Hm. Do you hate that you’re having feelings for him or do you hate that he can’t reciprocate?

Mariah: Summer has a thing for chance. Wait, how– how do you know this?

Sharon: It’s just a sense I got when chance and i saw her earlier.

Mariah: I did not see this coming.

Sharon: Well, chance helped her through the whole ordeal with phyllis. He became a sounding board for her and helped her sort out her feelings, so I guess it’s not surprising that she might feel a connection grow from that.

Mariah: Uh, you’re being very reasonable about this.

Sharon: Well, I don’t think there’s anything to worry about.

Mariah: Okay, so how do you feel about chance? I mean, how serious have things gotten between the two of you?

Sharon: We enjoy each other’s company a lot.

Mariah: Okay.

Sharon: It’s been fun and exciting, but, you know, at this point, who knows what’s going to happen long term for us?

Mariah: Do you feel like chance has a connection with summer?

Sharon: Um, I know he cares about her, and it’s his instinct to look out for her. That’s just the kind of man he is. Beyond that, I’m not concerned because like I said, I’m not sure how serious things are going to get between me and chance.

Mariah: Okay, but you do like him, though?

Sharon: Yeah, of course I do.

Mariah: Well, good. I just– I would hate to see summer ruin this for you because that’s kind of her mo.

Sharon: I know you don’t like summer, but right now, you have more important things to worry about and so do I. My whole focus is on this company, getting it up and running so that it will fly.

Mariah: Right. And I love that you’re being so practical about this as always, but I will say it’s very nice not to have to pretend to like summer anymore now that her and kyle are over.

[ Sharing chuckles ]

Sharon: Mariah.

Mariah: What? She’s annoying.

[ Knocking on door]

Sharon: Oh, I think th

Mariah: Oh, my gosh, oh, my gosh, you’re home! You’re home! Hi!

Tessa: Hi!

Mariah: Oh, my goodness!

Jack: When you say you struggle with forgiveness, I assume we’re talking about tucker still, right?

Billy: Tucker doesn’t deserve any grace. Not after what he’s done to our sister.

Jack: Oh, I agree. The last thing I wanted was for that man to become so ingrained in our lives, but ashley kind of forced that on us.

Billy: You know, jack, maybe we’re coming at this from the wrong direction. Instead of the defense, maybe we need to be on the offense.

Jack: You have something in mind?

Billy: We hit him first. And we hit him hard. We drive him out of town for good. I mean, what’s he doing in genoa city anyway? He came after jabot, he came after ashley, he’s not gonna leave with either one of those. He needs to be gone.

Jack: Okay, I see the value in driving him away, but here’s the thing. At this point, he does not have a weakness now that ashley’s not in his life.

Billy: I think maybe we’re missing someone. His son. If we can turn devon against tucker, we’re halfway there.

Phyllis: A deal with tucker mccall is never a good idea except for tucker mccall.

Tucker: What about a deal wherein my end of the bargain is to pay off all your debt in full? With no strings attached.

Phyllis: Why would you wanna do that?

Tucker: The goodness of my heart.

[ Phyllis laughs ]

Phyllis: There are always strings attached in a deal. Two people have to contribute. That’s what makes it an agreement.

Tucker: I know, I was being slightly facetious. There are some strings.

Phyllis: Of course. I’m not interested. At all.

Tucker: Just for the record, I wouldn’t be asking you to kill anyone. Or do any physical harm and I wouldn’t even ask you to die again. [ Laughs ] Or pretend to die again, as much as you might be tempted to, right now. No, what I would be asking for is pretty innocuous.

Phyllis: Sure.

Tucker: And we just need your exceptional it skills.

Phyllis: It’s too bad because I have an it job and I have a non-compete clause.

Tucker: That’s fantastic. Congratulations, phyllis. If only that were true. But you’re putting up a good front.

Phyllis: It is true. I’m working with sharon, nick and adam.

Tucker: That’s funny ’cause I heard the adustus-sna-newman venture fell apart when victor got his hands on it. Which would mean that your cushy new it job is no longer an option.

Phyllis: It’s not over ’til it’s over.

Tucker: Well put. But wasn’t adam your champion there? I’m guessing you haven’t heard from him in a minute. Now, he’s out of a job, leaving only nick and sharon to run the new company.

Phyllis: Well, I’ve worked with nick and sharon before.

Tucker: Yes, and do you think they’re– they’re excited about having you on board now that it’s just the two of them? Right, so, all that in mind, are you sure you’re not interested in what I have said?

Mariah: I knew I missed you, but I guess, I didn’t realize how much.

Tessa: Me too, and I made it even with all the scary color weather forecast.

Mariah: Oh, my gosh. How did you pull off this miracle?

Tessa: Well, I was determined to get here by tonight. If it took a bus, a train, a zamboni, a car, I would have rented it and driven all the way here because there was no way that I was going to miss aria’s appointment tomorrow.

Mariah: I adore you.

Tessa: So, the babysitter told me that you were here to check on your mom and I just came to see you.

Mariah: Oh, gosh.

[ Kisses smack ]

Tessa: Oh, oh, I’m sorry, we are being rude. Sharon, hi, how are you?

Sharon: Oh, I– I’m fine. Don’t worry about me. Why don’t you two go home and be together with the little one?

Tessa: What do you think? Should we, uh, head home?

Jack: I can understand you’re considering turning devon against tucker, but I am not comfortable pitting someone against their family. That is precisely what tucker aimed to do with ashley.

Billy: Yeah, well, I’m not talking about manipulation or mind games here. I’m simply talking about opening devon’s eyes to tucker’s recent behavior.

Jack: Abby has spoken to ashley. She knows her side of the story. She’s probably shared it with devon already.

Billy: And if devon talked to tucker, I’m sure tucker whitewashed everything that happened in paris. And then, he probably exonerated himself from any wrongdoing.

Jack: Yeah, that would be him.

Billy: That would be him, and then, he’s gonna paint a picture that ashley heartlessly betrayed him, and all he tried to do was love her and give her the world.

Jack: And try to wrest her away from her family.

Billy: Exactly. The way I see it, devon deserves to know the truth. In fact, we’d be doing him a favor.

Jack: I’ll– I’ll think about it, and in the meantime, I feel like getting out of here. How about I buy you a drink? Let’s go to the jazz lounge.

Billy: Sounds good.

Phyllis: I see wh you’re trying to do. I see it. This is not going to work.

Tucker: I’m simply outlining the facts of your life right now. I want you to consider me an angel on your shoulder.

Phyllis: An angel, that’s rich. I’m going to work for this, I’m going to raise the money on–

[ Tucker laughing ] I’m gonna do this legitimately.

Tucker: That should only take you, what, 10 years? Maybe, you could set up in a cave somewhere. Live like a hermit. Bring that down to five years.

Phyllis: I will do this. I am no stranger to hustling, tucker.

Tucker: Why should you have to hustle if I’m offering you $2,000,000 right now to wipe the slate clean.

Phyllis: Let me tell you something. I’ve been at the receiving end of your “hope,” and it did not go well.

Tucker: Yeah, that’s because you used adam to change the dynamics.

Phyllis: I had to get adam to help me from getting from under your thumb. That says everything, right?

Tucker: You know what I’m gonna do? I’m gonna tack on 10% just for you trouble.

Phyllis: No, I’m not accepting your deal.

Tucker: I love your negotiating.

Phyllis: I’m not negotiating with you.

Tucker: Yes, unless I see you. Come on, admit it. You’re so curious. “What does he want me to do for all that cash?” Hi, my name is tony cooper.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year restless will continue.

Daniel: You’re avoiding the question.

Summer: Maybe that’s because I don’t know what the answer is. The last thing I want to do is be the other woman.

Daniel: Hm, sure. I mean, you’ve seen that dynamic and you’ve been a part of it,

Summer: Okay, but I don’t even know how serious sharon and chance are. But yeah, I did just get out of a situation where kyle slept with someone else the second we were separated, and it was awful. [ Sighs ]

Daniel: You’re really torn up about this, huh?

Summer: I don’t want anybody to get hurt, including myself.

Daniel: Mm. [ Chuckles ] You know what I think? I think that you’re reacting this way because your feelings for chance are a bit more complicated than you’re willing to admit.

Summer: I know, okay? You’re right. So maybe, the answer to the question is… it’s both. I hate that I’m feeling this way and… I hate that chance isn’t available.

Phyllis: Well, I am done here.

Tucker: Well, you know where to find me when you change your mind.

Phyllis: That wasn’t what it looked like.

Jack: I don’t care. I’ve come to expect very little of you these days.

Phyllis: Are you still furious with me?

Jack: I don’t really give you that much thought.

Phyllis: Okay, point taken.

Tucker: A shot of rye please. Thank you.

Jack: Well, I’ve spoken to ashley, I know the truth now.

Tucker: You mean, her version of it.

Jack: I don’t really care what went down, I’m just relieved you’re hold over ashley is finally broken and she’s come to her senses.

Tucker: I love her, jack. That’s real.

Jack: You blew it, at though why you thought it was a good idea to come back to genoa city right after your marriage blew up. What are you up to?

Billy: Hey.

Phyllis: Hey. Hi.

Billy: You okay?

Phyllis: Yeah.

Billy: Okay, you just seem a little frazzled.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Yeah. Well, I just saw tucker downstairs, so…

Billy: Oh, that must have been the highlight of your day.

Phyllis: Then, I saw jack. He’s not a fan.

Billy: Okay, I take that back.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Right. What about you, billy? Are you not a fan too?

Billy: I got no beef with you. I’m genuinely happy that you’re not in jail and that you’ve been exonerated.

Phyllis: Thank you. Not everybody feels that way.

Billy: There’s always gonna be haters, okay? Don’t let them get in your way. And most importantly, stay out of your own way.

[ Phyllis chuckles ]

Phyllis: That is correct.

Billy: Yeah, it’s not easy, is it?

Phyllis: No, it’s easier said than done.

Billy: Don’t let anyone or anything drag you back down.

Phyllis: Hey, um, speaking of which, what’s the deal with tucker and ashley? Did they just implode?

Billy: I think so. I don’t know all the details.

Phyllis: Okay, so why is he still in town? Why doesn’t he just leave?

Billy: I don’t know. I wish he would. Jack and I both agree that, uh, it can’t be good.

Phyllis: It’s interesting.

Billy: Avoid him at all costs, okay? For your own good.

Phyllis: Yeah, you’re probably right.

Tucker: I have a life in the world outside of ashley, jack. I came back for my son and my grandson.Ell, iope, for your sake, that’s your only motive.

Tucker: Why, because you care about me so much?

Jack: No, because if, for some reason, you feel slighted enough to want revenge, you and I are going to have a problem.

Tucker: There you go again.

Jack: Whatever happened between you and ashley is entirely your fault.

Tucker: Were you there?

Jack: I have no doubt you drove her away. Word has it, you showed her who you really are. She realized she couldn’t turn her back on her family or her father’s company. And what, you felt diminished, so you reverted to form.

Tucker: It’s funny. In my version–

Jack: I don’t need to hear your version. I’m fine knowing ashley’s side of the story.

Tucker: I’m sure you are.

Jack: Go away, tucker. Reinvent yourself somewhere else.

Tucker: But all the action’s here, jack.

Jack: If you are planning anything vindictive toward my family, you think again. I will do whatever it takes to protect them.

Tucker: Okay. You know what? You might be right. You might be the only level-headed abbott left.

Phyllis: Hey, sharon, hi. My apologies for the late hour.

Sharon: Phyllis, um, you didn’t tell me you were coming and security didn’t alert me.

Phyllis: Well, I mean, they all know me, so…

Sharon: Oh. What do you want?

Phyllis: Um, I want to know what’s going on with sna.U’re calling it still, right? I– I’ve heard– well, I’ve heard massive rumblings and I just want to know where I stand job-wise.

Sharon: Can we talk about this later?

Phyllis: Well, I mean, we can, except, I just need to know. I feel like I deserve an answer.

Sharon: I suppose that’s true.

Phyllis: I mean, I know that adam preemptively hired me as it head and he didn’t tell you and nick first, but you seemed to be okay with it.

Sharon: Well, I won’t speak for nick, but I came to accept it.

Phyllis: Okay, good. So, adam is out. And it’s just you and nick and you’re separating yourself from newman and running the company together, just the two of you.

Sharon: That’s the plan.

Phyllis: Our history lingers, doesn’t it?

Sharon: Well, we’ve made some progress, but I know what you’re saying.

Phyllis: Yeah, I was hoping that your opinion about working with me shifted, that’s all.

Sharon: Well, a lot is in flux.

Phyllis: Am i out of a job, sharon?

Mariah: Here we are. Alone at last. Sometimes, the lows of bipolar depression

[ Tessa chuckles ]

Mariah: Did I tell you how much I missed you?

[ Tessa laughs ] All right, how was the marchetti photo shoot?

Tessa: Ooh, um, it was pretty brutal, honestly. I mean, everyone was so nice. I– I was just kind of a hot mess.

Mariah: That’s so funny because so was I, just in a different state across the country.

Tessa: I mean, yeah, I just– I had a really hard time concentrating. I could barely focus. I mean, all I could think about was getting back home to you and aria.

Mariah: While you were gone, I tried to entertain her with that silly little dance thing…

[ Tessa laughs ] …That you do, and guess what? She was not impressed. Not at all, complete failure.

[ Both chuckling ]

Tessa: Are you as nervous about this appointment tomorrow as I am?

Mariah: [ Sighs ] Um… I go back and forth between controlled terror and numb, and then, I go back again, you know. I just keep thinking what if it’s worse than we’ve imagined. What if the hearing aids don’t work at all?

Tessa: No. We do as sharon and devon said and we take it one step at a time. We’re unstoppable together.

Mariah: I really don’t want to crowd you, but is it okay if we’re just never ever apart again?

[ Tessa laughs ] Please. Pretty please.

Tessa: You’re stuck with me forever.

Tucker: That would be lovely. Thank you very much.

Woman: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: Tucker, wait. I’m curious. What exactly do you expect for your investment?

Jack: You were right. We can’t sit on this. We gotta go on offence.

Billy: Good. So, we have a plan.

Jack: And we’re going to be relentless. We get devon on our side, and then, we run tucker out of here for good.

Tucker: So, I need you to hack into a certain business and gather some information for me.

Phyllis: Okay, I assume it’s not your business, therefore, it is illegal.

Tucker: It would be minimal risk to you. Especially, for someone of your caliber. It’s a maneuver you could pull off in your sleep.

Phyllis: And you’ll gift me the money.

Tucker: Yes. 2.2 million. Just for a couple of keystrokes.

Phyllis: Sounds very simple.

Tucker: It sounds like a bountiful exchange from my perspective.

Phyllis: Okay, so, um… I need to know the name of the company that I’m gonna be infiltrating.

Tucker: No, you don’t, no. I’m gonna tell you that only when I know I have you on board. So, what’s it going to be? Are you in?

marshall: Hey, how’s it going? Alright. Good to see you.

[ Buzzes lips ] This is the slowest night we’ve had in months. Don’t I know it. Where is everybody?

[ Scoffs ] Not here. Hey. Don’t worry, n’neka. It’ll pick up. It has to.

[ Footsteps approaching ] Oh, god. Not what I was hoping for. Mom. Trina!

[ Door closes ] Oh, yay! [ Laughs ] Oh! Sweetheart, look who came to visit us. And I come bearing a gift to christen the new gaming system. Is that the new “sudden death”? It just released this thursday. Okay, well, you know what? We’ll play head-to-head mode right now. And three heads are better than two? You want to play? Of course I do.

[ Both laugh ] Okay. Thank you, sam, for these clothes. I feel almost human again. You’re welcome. And you, too, dante. No problem. Sasha: Your turn. No, uh, I’m — I’m alright. We can just wait. Actually, you stink, bro. Cody, you’re gonna feel so much better once you change. Alright, alright, alright. No need for an uprising. Come on, let’s get you in there. Yep. I’ll go. You’ve gotta change. You smell.

[ Knock on door ]

[ Door opens ] Boss, gabe just texted. The knockoff shoe shipment arrived on time, no problem. I wouldn’t be too sure about that. Hi. I just was wondering if you had an eta on the officers? Yeah, no, it’s not an emergency. I just want to start cleaning up, so, yeah.

[ Knock on door ]

[ Gasps ] Um. Okay. I-I think they’re here. Thank you. Bye. Hello? Charlotte? Hello, anna. Is papa here? Stop there. Play it back a little. Freeze it. Oh, my god. Valentin, it can’t be. Play it through. I need to see what happens. W-well, you know what happens. I need to see it.

[ Both gasp ]

marshall, n’neka, what a lovely night it is. Mm. And didn’t you turn yourself out for it. Selina, you look stunning. Thank you, n’neka. So do you. But, then, you always do. This is my good friend, zion. Good evening. N’neka garland. Marshall ashford. Selina. He’s watching the club for his son, curtis. What are you two having to drink? Champagne? Excellent call.

[ Chuckles ] One bottle of champagne for miss wu. Oh, no. Just two glasses. We won’t be staying. We’re only here for a quick drink, out of loyalty to curtis. We’re headed to the new club, intrigue, downtown.

[ Chuckles ] Oh, do they have gambling there? Not that I know of. But it’s always jam-packed.

[ Clicks tongue ]

[ Laughs ] Thank you for bringing the game over. You know I’m definitely down to play, but…why don’t you tell me why you really came over? Because you just moved back into your dorm, and I know you’re not homesick already. I don’t have to be homesick to come home. I just wanted to hang out with you and mom.

[ Video game noises playing ] Alright. Who’s winning? Oh, mom, we — [Laughs] The game just finished loading. We haven’t even started yet. Okay. Alright. I don’t know if you guys noticed, but video games aren’t really my thing. Understatement. Especially “sudden death.”

[ Laughs ] But I did see on here that they have virtual tours where you can check out castles in europe. Maybe we could try that. Yeah. Wow, mom, that sounds really amazing, but, um, we’re trying to get all dirty harry on the zombies with this game. Of course. As long as you guys are having fun. Uh, okay, so before we get started, how about I get us some iced tea? Mom? Curtis? Mmm. Yes. Yes. The caffeine will give me adrenaline to play this game. Exactly. Okay. I’ll be right back.

[ Zombies growling

on television ] Isn’t it so sweet of trina to come by? You know why she came by, don’t you? What do you mean? To check on us, and I don’t mind. You know, you raised a very special young woman. The charges have been dropped against me. But that raid, my arrest — that’s just the beginning. The feds are going to be watching every move I make. They’re going to be tracking whoever I associate with. You know what I’m saying? Live like I’m under a microscope, got it. They’ve been trying to take me down for years, but never for nsa violations. This is on a whole other level. It’s just going to get more complicated. And pikeman isn’t taking “no” for an answer. Alright. Uh, when you come in, it’s going to be a bit of a shock, but just don’t touch anything, okay? What happened here? Where’s papa? It looks like, um, we had a break-in, and your father’s gone to hotel security. What are you doing here? I took a rideshare. By yourself? I’m 15. Yeah, I know. But even so, do dante and sam know you’re here? They’re out somewhere. It’s not a big deal. I just needed to see my father. Valentine: Play it again. Re-watching it’s not going to change what’s there. Play it again. There might be something that I missed, something that makes a difference. Play it again.

[ Both sigh ] What are you going to do? Nothing, yet.

[ Sighs ] Valentin, I, uh — I can’t just ignore this. No, I know you can’t, and I can’t, either. But this is a volatile situation. Can you let me handle this?

[ Cellphone ringing ] Hang on. Anna? Charlotte’s here. Charlotte? Yeah, she — she wants to see you. I’ll be right there.

[ Sighs ] I gotta go. Please don’t show this to anyone else.

[ Door closes ] Okay. You were all right. I’m very happy to be out of that creep’s clothes. Mm-hmm. Look what I found. It was in one of montague’s pockets. I’m gonna have to have these analyzed. Yeah, I’m guessing he wasn’t planning on taking those pills himself. Montague knew he crossed a line, and you were his only witness — a loose end. What are you saying, sam? Do you think dr. Montague was going to slip me an overdose? He had those pills on him when he found us in your room. You think he was going to kill me?

Hey, it’s n’neka. I’m at the club. We’re going to need some help down here asap. Thank you, mr. Ashford, for an enchanting evening. It’s a shame there were so few people here to enjoy it. It’ll pick up later, I’m sure. Really? From what I’ve been told, it hasn’t been picking up much this past week. If you truly were loyal to your son, you’d reconsider. Let me take the savoy off your hands before it’s worthless.

[ Chuckles ] Ms. Wu…

[ Laughs ] Not a chance. You’ll see. We’ll survive and thrive.

[ Breathes deeply ] I wouldn’t be too sure. The club doesn’t have the same draw without your son’s charm — something curtis obviously got from his mother.

[ Scoffs ] You know nothing about my family, lady… or loyalty… or [Chuckles] Even good champagne. So why don’t you go on over to that club you’re so excited about and see if that’s for sale?

[ Breathes sharply ] Everything okay here? Mr. Ashford’s son suffered a great tragedy. Marshall is obviously traumatized by it. It’s best we leave him to his misery. But thank you for the champagne.

[ Laughs ] Bye. Oh. Trina, zombie attack, 6:00. I see it. I see it, curtis. Don’t worry. I got it. Yeah? How’d that work out last time?

[ Laughs ] Uh, that was one time. And wasn’t I the one to find the digitalis for the spray-gun? You’re welcome, by the way. Oh, oh, trina. Watch out. Watch out. It’s right behind you. Right behind you. No, no, no, mom. That — that’s — that’s the zombie ghost that comes out to collect the bodies when you neutralize them. Of course it is. Ooh, ooh, ooh! To your left. To your left. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Mm, take that. There he is. There he is. Ah, look. Up. Watch this. Watch this. Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm.

[ Laughs ] Nice shot. Mm. Good stuff. Mm! Trina and curtis: Crypt surge! Mm! Oh, damn, watch out. Okay, trina, assemble the spray-gun. I’m going to create a buffer. Uh, I-I can’T. I-I still need to get the wolfsbane. Keep the zombies out so that I can go to the greenhouse. Yep. Well, I have to step out for just a bit. Oh, we drive you away? Babe, is everything okay? No, no. Everything is fine. I just have to help out a friend. Oh, well, sorry if we left you on the sidelines.

[ Chuckling ] No, no, honey, don’t worry about me. Just keep enjoying playing your video game. Neutralize those zombies.

[ Laughter ] I’ll be back as soon as I can.

[ Door closes ] Mom’s the best. Mm. But she is awful at video games.

[ Laughs ] Well, you inherited your gaming gene from me. I know that’s right.

[ Video game noises playing ] Mm. Got him.

[ Door opens ]

[ Dramatic music plays ] Olivia. What are you doing in my office? I was, uh, looking at the w-wedding bookings. I-I’m thinking about changing the date of my wedding. Oh. And I-I just didn’t want to rifle around looking for that binder that we have, so I was just checking to see what was confirmed. Oh, well, the binder is right over here, same as ever. Oh, there it is.

[ Laughs ] You take your time with that. We’re just — we’re just heading out. Okay. Hey, eddie. I, uh, heard from olivia that you had a great recording session. Yeah, no, the studio was great. Be sure to thank sonny for hooking us up. I will do that, yeah. He was happy to help you out. Well, like I said, uh, take your time. Just lock up when you leave. Yeah, thanks. Okay? Mm-hmm. Enjoy. Yeah.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Door closes ] I’m so sorry, charlotte. I mean, I would take you to the restaurant and buy you a hot chocolate or something, but I’ve got to stay here and wait for the officers. Anna, I’m not a kid anymore. You don’t have to keep me amused. No, my bad. You’re almost an adult. Anna, thank you for calling me. Charlotte, what are you doing here? I just wanted to see you. I… didn’t realize you’d be busy.

[ Knock on door ] Pcpd. We received a report of a break-in. We can’t say that montague wanted to kill you, but maybe he wanted to keep you unstable enough to the point where he could move you somewhere else and…your recovery was virtually impossible. Yeah, but [Scoffs] I mean, the fact that montague was bringing the pills into ferncliff points to something extreme, right? You know, doctors don’t dispense medication from their pockets. I mean, this shows that he had some kind of plan. Yeah, but what exactly? And how do we prove it? Well, this all started after I petitioned to end gladys’s guardianship, and the court assigned dr. Montague to evaluate me. A-and, yes, that — that might be a coincidence, but we know that gladys and montague know each other from the poker game at the savoy. And — and granted, you know, montague’s debt isn’t as deep as gladys’, but…every gambler needs a steady cash flow. Okay, so gladys ropes in montague to make sasha appear to be unfit to the courts, but he pushes it too far, and you wind up stabbing cody and get sent to ferncliff. But then montague’s got another problem. What happens if you regain enough clarity to the point where you can link your breakdown to the pills that he was giving you? He’s got to cover his tracks. He’s got to make you not just look insane, but hopelessly addicted. Cody: So then he — I mean, he’s at least guilty of — of — of what — covert drugging? Like, isn’t — wouldn’t that be considered poisoning? Well, it’s criminal malpractice and attempted murder. But again, guys… how do we prove it?

[ Knock on door ] Boss? Mr. Hume. Come on in. Have a seat. Dex, can you stay? You don’t mind if he stays, right, roman? No. Whatever you like. Okay. Congratulations are in order, mr. Corinthos. We were all very pleased to hear about the charges being dropped. Really? Of course. Pikeman regrets any trouble you’ve faced and, uh… we’d like to offer you this as an apology. Is this an apology or a down payment on another deal? The room was like this when we got here. As far as I can tell, nothing is missing. My tablet and my computer — they’re all here, untouched. We can send forensics if you’d like. Yeah. Valentin: Well, this is a hotel room. Forensics is going to find a thousand different fingerprints from a thousand different guests. How helpful is that going to be? It might not yield much. We can pursue this if you’d like, anna, but it looks like a case of malicious mischief to me. Do you want to file a complaint, start an investigation? Mnh. No! Ha-ha! Score. Sorry, my friend. You just got slimed. No fair. I was the one who got the wolfsbane.

[ Laughs ] You ready for the next level? Definitely.

[ Sighs lightly ] So, curtis, um, marshall told me that you went to the club the other day. I did. He said that n’neka and the whole staff was really excited to see you come back. Oh, well , I’m not sureI would consider it being back. But it’s your club. Don’t you want to get into the swing of things again? Trina, a lot’s happened. Well, it’s obvious. Yeah, I mean, it was good to get out of the house and… it’s just, you know, going back opened my eyes to a lot — some good and some that’s just, well… hard to admit. Hey. How’s it going? Uh, slower than my last relationship.

[ Chuckling ] Oh, well, I can see that. Ugh. Portia. What brings you down here? Oh! Where’s curtis? Curtis and trina are at the house in their video game world, and it was too loud for me.

[ Chuckles ] So I decided to get some air, and, um, you know, I ended up here. Don’t you have an early start for work tomorrow? I do. I do. But my head is pretty full of all the dead zombies. I thought I would be here with you two in the land of the living. Well… I’m glad you’re here.

[ Chuckles ] Every living body counts tonight.

[ Chuckles ] Right. So, what can I get you?

[ Light music playing ] Wow. Ghost town. Yeah. What happened to this place? Last time I was here, it was hopping. According to the authorities,montague is the victim here. He was beaten and tied up. Montague had a pocket full of pills he was going to use to O.D. Me. I understand that, but we have no proof. These could have come from anywhere. And right now, it’s just our word against his. And we are escaped mental patients. Well, at least sasha is either an escapee or a kidnapping victim. You, on the other hand, are a felon, wanted for assault and kidnapping. Cody did not kidnap me. He rescued me! Look, we have to stop this before it gets any worse. We can turn ourselves in and tell the truth.

So pikeman wants another go-round? Absolutely. Wants me to move, you know, another shipment? Most definitely. Yeah. And this is a peace offering. Compensation for your trouble. Dex, close the briefcase. Give it back to him. Tell your bosses no deal. When I was in custody, I got a lot of questions about pikeman, so they know what’s going on. Has nothing to do with my people ’cause they didn’t do any talking, so that means it’s on your side, and that’s a problem. Nobody in pikeman would be that careless. You can guarantee that? I didn’t think so. It’s a big organization. So here’s the deal. I want you to find the leak. Until then, until you can assure me it’s plugged, there’s no deal. ‘Cause I am not going to let the feds use pikeman to get me. Turning yourselves in — it’s not as simple as it sounds. You need proof to back up your story, and right now, we don’t have that. Dr. Montague injected me several times with drugs. Wouldn’t the hospital have some sort of record of that? Yeah, I doubt, montague went through the proper channels for that, sasha. Wait a minute. What about the medication that he gave you before you went to ferncliff? Do you have the prescription that he wrote? He never gave me a prescription. He — he just handed me the pills. Ohh! I can’t believe I didn’t question that. Hey, hey. Hey, hey. Don’t you dare blame yourself for that, alright? You were betrayed by the people you trusted. In no way is that your fault. But you risked everything to save me, cody. And now you’re the one facing charges. How do we prove that you’re innocent? We might have something going for us. So, mac is the commissioner, and I think he’s going to see cody’s innocence. So mac really is your father? I can’t imagine how hard it must be to go back to the savoy. But you did it. I’m not going to lie. It was tiring, but, I’m, you know, getting stronger every day. Well, marshall told me that you were thinking about selling the savoy?

[ Sighs ] He did, did he? Well, let me tell you, it’s nothing you need to worry your pretty little head about. But it was your dream. Well, yeah. The savoy is a special place, you know? It’s like a home away from home in all the best ways. Just imagine throwing a party every night — good food, good music, and even better company. Walking from table to table, fraternizing with people I wouldn’t have known otherwise. Yeah, it was amazing. Was? Well, trina, sadly, sometimes in life, dreams can change. And I can’t imagine that same party under this current situation. But you are the club. What’s going to happen to it? Yeah. Uh…

[ Chuckles ] Let’s not talk about me. Let’s talk about you. Curtis! Well, no. Don’t get all stella on me now. I’m your dad. I want to hear about you. You just started school. You moved into the dorms. What are you looking forward to this year? And I do want to remind you, all work and no play — don’t be that, okay? Have fun sometimes, you know. Well, it’s funny that you mention that, um, because actually…

[ Sighs ] …There is something that I-I am looking forward to that has nothing to do with school. Oh? So I’m — I’m planning on taking a trip to new york for the weekend. With spencer. Really? Okay. That’s something I’m surprised your mom didn’t tell me. Well, I haven’t told her yet. Yet. But you do plan on telling her. I thought I should wait until it gets closer to the trip. Trina, trina. You know how she feels about spencer. Oh, I definitely do. Yeah, I do. Okay, well, uh… the most important thing is, um, how you feel about him. And that is…? I think I’m in love with him. Do you think he feels the same way? He hasn’t said. And you? Have you? No. Why? Good to see you. Welcome. Hey. Well, n’neka, besides it being dead in here, what’s the emergency? Oh, selina wu. She wa s in here parading aroundtonight with some trophy date, and she and marshall had a face-off. Wait. Whoa, whoa. What kind of face-off? Well, I didn’t hear all of it, but voices were definitely raised, and marshall barely held it back. Yeah, but what set him off? There was tension the moment ms. Wu walked in. But when I came back from leaving you the message, marshall was basically kicking her out, saying she should go buy some other club downtown. Do you think she’s trying to get her hands on this place? I think so. I overheard marshall talking to curtis about it, so… well, I don’t think curtis’s father should be pushing her. Ms. Wu is not someone to be toyed with. No, I know exactly who she is. And you did the absolute right thing by calling me.

[ Sighs ] Ms. Wu is — she’s dangerous. I just don’t think that marshall realizes how dangerous she truly is. What were you recording? Oh, it was nothing, really. I was just demoing a new song. It’s only half done. Then why haven’t you finished? That’s what I keep asking him. Well, it’s easier said than done. Creating a song isn’t like writing a term paper. You can’t just power through to finish it.

[ Chuckles ] You know, I need to, uh, you know, wait for that spark of creativity to ignite.

[ Scatting ]

[ Laughter ] This man speaks the truth. Okay. Sometimes you got to tune into a melody. Alright. Exactly. The song came to me unexpectedly, but it was, um, just a little fuzzy. Like I almost could catch it, but not quite. So I just have to wait for the muse to visit me again.

[ Laughs ] The ghost of elvis presley, huh? Elvis, eh? Ah. If you need any clarinet, I’m there. Oh. I might just take you up on that, my friend. I’ve worked with a sax before, but I’ve never worked with a clarinet. Well, you know what they say. Once you go clarinet, you just never forget.

[ Laughter ] Alright. That was pretty bad. Yeah, that was bad. Hey, I got an idea. Why don’t you finish your song, debut it here at the club next week? It’s a challenge. Well, it might be a bit of a downer to play in a house this, uh, light. Uh, do you think, uh — mm. You think there’ll be more people here next week?

How would you like us to proceed? I-I-I want you to pursue the formal channels. You know, I-I — I want you to tell me what you uncover and keep me in the loop. Will do. Yeah. Now, this may seem like simple harassment, ms. Devane, but after the arson at your house, could these two incidents be related? I don’t know. I mean…

[ Police radio chatter ] Yeah. Maybe? I’m — I don’t know. I-I don’t know what answers you’re going to find in here or — I don’t know. We’ll keep you posted.

[ Clears throat ] Well, we’re not safe here. Yeah, obviously. Charlotte, can you get on the house phone? Ask the front desk to move us to a new suite. Sure, papa. God, I’m so sorry that she saw this. It’s probably quite scary for her.

[ Breathes deeply ] Were you able to access the security footage? Hume’s gone. He got in a range rover with new york plates and drove off. So tell me… what’s your take on what just happened here? That, uh — that’s above my pay grade, boss. You think I just hired you to open the doors and call me boss? You want something in life, you got to grab it. What are you doing here, anyway? Listen, I know you’re smart. You pay attention. You don’t think I see how your mind’s always spinning? Now, because you’re not the boss, you have access to people and places that I don’T. So now’s your chance to show me how you think, evaluate. So…you want to move up in my world? I got to be able to trust your judgment. So tell me what you see. Tonight’s a little slow. That’s putting it mildly. Hell, I wouldn’t want to play up there either with this crowd. But the one thing that’s missing tonight, the one thing that’s been missing every night, is my son curtis. You want a good promoter? Look no further. He’ll pack this place. We just need to give him something to promote. And I’m — I’m thinking the return of eddie maine — whoo! — That might be just the ticket.

[ Chuckles ] Look, y’all go ahead and think about that, alright? While I send over two drinks for you… and your beautiful date.

[ Laughs ] Maybe I-I’m not ready to say “I love you” first. Or…maybe I’m waiting for spencer to say it first. I-I don’t know. Are you having doubts about spencer? No doubts. I just — I just feel impatient and annoyed… and disappointed at times. He just does the stupidest things, but then he also does the sweetest things.

[ Breathes deeply ] I haven’t spent much time around spencer, but, um, I think you know, early on, I wasn’t a big fan.

[ Scoffs ] Yeah. But all that changed in greenland. I have great respect for the way he cared for you. And I also respect the way he lights up every time you’re in the room. But all that aside, are you sure you can count on him emotionally? Okay, now, see, that’s — that’s what’s hard. At first, I would say definitely not. But then, over time, I think… yes.

[ Sighs ] Well, honey, you and spencer come from two different worlds. What do you mean? Well, you’re responsible, you’re practical, and you’re grounded in the real world. Spencer comes from a crazy rich family. He doesn’t have to work a day in his life. Well, it’s not his fault that he was born rich. No, no, it’s not his fault. But I’ve learned this — people with too much free time and money tend to get into a lot of trouble.

“My beautiful date”? Marshall’s right about one thing. But do you think this is a date? Well…

[ Chuckles ] If it gets us free drinks, I don’t see why not. Here you go. Compliments of the savoy. Thank you. Thank you, n’neka. Thank you. So, um, what are we toasting to?

[ Sighs ] To marshall’s challenge. You finish the song — you come back here and sing it next week. Why not?

[ Chuckles ] I heard that ms. Wu was sniffing around — something about buying the club. She can sniff all she wants, portia. It’s not for sale. Curtis built this place from the ground up, and I am not going to let selina wu swoop in and take it. But spencer is –is not like that. Y-you should see him with ace. He’s amazing. Yeah. Your mom told me that ace is always going to be part of the equation.

[ Breathes deeply ] Are you sure you’re ready to take on a child at this point in your life? And how is spencer going to cope if esme decides to take ace and leave town? How are you dealing with esme after all the torture she put you through? I-I don’t know. There’s a lot that I don’t know. But I do know that we don’t know what the future holds. True that. Look at me. Think about epiphany. Sometimes you just — you’ve got to live in the moment. Well, what do you think, curtis? Is this my moment? My impression is that pikeman is a very efficient operation. They have legit government contracts, but they also obviously have a parallel operation going. Maybe it operates as a rogue offshoot. Hume seemed surprised when you suggested he consider someone on the inside, but as far as pikeman itself, it wouldn’t make sense for them to jeopardize everything to leak to the feds about their deal with you. And I agree with you. It wasn’t one of your men. Damn. Turn you on and you just go. Thanks for the insight. So here’s the thing — the feds busted me on false information, false information that I planted. The thing is — that I don’t know is the timing of — or the extent of the fbi investigation. Do they already know that we made a move for pikeman, or are they going by what we’ve already put out there? With all due respect, sir, I think the safest option is to cut ties with pikeman. Well, that’s the problem, isn’t it? Pikeman is not taking “no” for an answer. So what I did tonight was buy time. Now I have to figure out how to move forward. We can’t rely on mac’s goodwill to beat this, dante. You know, he still has to uphold the law. Hey, why don’t you give us, like, 24 hours and we can see what we can dig up? Right? Right? Yeah. Okay. We’ll go back to port charles. You guys should probably sit tight here. I mean, you do have to turn yourselves in at some point, but that’s not now. Sam: Yeah, and we’ll be in touch tomorrow. Thanks, sam. I really — I-I can’t thank you enough. Yeah, really. Thank you so much. No problem. I only did what I thought was right. Cody, I’m sorry — dante, look. Look, you, as always, are the rock and kept me on the straight and narrow. Thank you both for everything.

[ Door closes ]

[ Sighs ] I can’t believe what they’re willing to risk for us. Mm. For you, sasha. They believe in you. So do I. Well, I guess all we can do now is wait and see what they turn up. Well, we do have one other option. Which is…? You and I could just disappear. Did you talk to security? Was there anything on the tapes?

[ Charlotte speaking indistinctly ] There was nothing there. What? How is that possible? There’s cameras everywhere. Anna, the footage from this floor was missing. Okay. So…someone forged a key card to get in here, and — and then they wipe the surveillance tape? That was — so that they could ransack a room, destroy my clothes, and write an intimidating message on the mirror? Papa, the front desk wants to speak to you. Let me deal with that. You just take her back to dante. Okay. I’ll — I’ll call you when I’m on my way back. Thank you, darling. Thank you so much for doing that.

[ Door opens ] Yeah. Hello? Yeah. Let’s go, ma petite. Um, are you able to find us another suite? Thank you. No, no, that’s perfectly fine. Ready, papa? Oh, charlotte… what have you done?

Look, just calm down. Okay? I know you’re worried, but as long as I’m representing you, we’re both safe. I’ll have to get back to you on that one. Right.

Hello. Mm hmm. I need to talk to you. I need a kiss. Oh, I think I just felt a little kick then. Oh, yeah. Welcome to my world. I think we have us a soccer player. Wonderful. Okay. Down to business. Good. You got my message. I need to talk to you as a consultant. Why? Professor Downe and I was wondering if you could do some research and suggest an acquisition that could give us a little boost.

Sure, I can get right on that, after you answer this question. Of course. Did you try to have Ava Vitale killed?

Just to see if there’s any sign of Martin. Well, at least there’s nothing about us in the local news. Unless they’re purposely keeping the media in the dark about us. So they can just close in. No one’s, no one’s closing in on us. Yeah? And you know that, Hal? Uh, what if somebody at Gatwick… Spotted those funny passports if we showed them.

They would have just picked us up right then and there. Oh, you know what? They’re probably staked out in front of the hotel right now. Okay, that’s not, that’s not how it works. We made it into the UK without Scotland Yard or the cops from Salem knowing where we are, okay? And tomorrow, we’re gonna start looking for Susan Banks.

Right. Here, in London. Which is a really big city, and we don’t have the first clue how to begin. Harris, what if we made a huge mistake?

So, have you heard from your mom? Did they make it to London? Radio’s silent so far. But she probably thinks it’s too risky to send me a message. I really hope she can find TJ’s mother. She’s gonna have to. Where she’s going to spend the rest of her life running away from EJ. But yeah, I’ll never be able to repay you for coming up with those fake passports.

I mean, you took a big risk for someone you don’t even know. But I know our son. And that’s enough.

Hey, I, uh, I got your message. What’s up? Well… Solon and I talked about still wanting to have a child and, you know, given her condition, we realized that adoption may be the best thing. Yeah, I can understand that. So that means you’ll help us through the process? I’m sorry, what? The adoption process. I mean, we’re gonna need a lawyer.

Oh. That’s why I asked you here. Yeah, I mean, yes. Sorry, yes. I, of course, I’ll represent you. Hey, what’s, what’s wrong? I mean, I can see that something is. Yeah, something’s wrong. Um, Sean didn’t come home last night.

Oh, God.

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

Hi. Oh

my god, no, no, no, no, no. Wait, what did we, and like, how did we? Listen, Talia, I’m, listen, I’m really sorry. I, I, this, you were, you were a very sweet girl, but this is, look, this is my fault. No, okay, it was me too. Oh. Oh my god, Belle. Oh.

Oh my gosh, six text messages and a voicemail. Gosh, she must think that I’m dead in a, in a ditch somewhere. Wait, didn’t you say that you guys got into like this big fight or something? Wait, I told you that? Yeah. Oh, what else did I tell you? Um, that she’s cheated on you in the past and… Oh, that I’ve never cheated on her.

Oh, man. Well, I guess I can’t say that anymore. Oh God, I can’t believe I told you that. I, I can’t believe any of

this. You told me that Sean was having sessions with mom again. That you thought he might be coming out of this. Yeah, and then Victor’s funeral happened. And because Sean now not only blames himself for Bo being in a coma, but also for Victor’s death, he’s started drinking again and then he went to work, or tried to.

He got suspended again? No, Rafe sent him home, but then he went straight to the square where he and I ran into each other and he was clearly drunk. And I, I said some things I shouldn’t have said. It’s been going on a long time. And understanding doesn’t seem to be the key with Sean. Yeah, well, I think I went too far.

I told him that I thought he should be in a residential facility. Or, rehab, and that’s really when everything went off the rails, and he said that I was trying to lock him away in a loony bin, and then he threw my affair with EJ in my face.

Oh, come on. Why would I plot Ava’s murder? Why wouldn’t you? The news said it looked like an attempted hit, and no one hates Ava more than you do. Ava was the one who did the shooting, and then she escaped with Harris Michaels. Okay, well, you skipped over the part about who Ava shot. And the first report said it was a nurse, but the administrator at Bayview said they’d never seen that woman before.

And the only person who knows about this mystery person is her attorney. You. Which leads me to believe that you’re defending her because you hired her to avenge her mother. By killing Ava.

I don’t understand, what mistake have we made? Oh, Harris. We have barely had a moment to breathe since we broke out of Bayview. Next thing I know, Tripp’s girlfriend’s making us fake passports, and now here we are, in London, without a clue as to what happens next. Yeah, well, we’re gonna figure that out. Oh, God, don’t, don’t you see?

I am in EJ’s crosshairs, and finding Susan is my only hope. And I’m here, in London. We are here, on another continent, based on a vision that I had. I don’t know what you’re trying to say. I am trying to say that you need to take me back to Bayview. Because clearly, I am crazy.

This is all good, Dave. Nice work. Hey there. Any news on the hunt for Ava? Yes. In fact…

Seriously? Yeah. That is coming straight from Officer Silver. I assigned him to check out chip drawings in the apartment building. And a neighbor thinks that they may have seen somebody in the alleyway behind the building at the same time that Ava and Michaels broke out of Bayview. I’m going to interview him.

No way. Not now. What? Tina, you were wearing the same thing that you had on yesterday. So you’re going to go home. You’re going to get some rest. I’ve got your notes. I’ll contact the witness. Okay. Boy, well, someone’s getting awfully bossy. Yeah, someone’s gonna get even more bossier if you don’t leave now.

Okay. Okay. I’ll leave. But, but, if you come up with something big, you promise you’ll call me. I am just as invested as finding Ava as you are. I’ve got you on speed dial. Okay. Right. Yeah.

If you find out anything Go! Now. If


hear anything, you’ll let me know? Definitely. You heading back to the apartment? I thought I’d go back to the office. The office is DiMera Enterprises. I know. Wendy, you’ve done enough. I don’t want you tangling with EJ. Tripp, your mom is in trouble. And the creep I work for sent an assassin to take her out.

Which proves how dangerous that creep is. Look, I’m just gonna do a little fishing. Okay, I’m a nobody to EJ, so he won’t even notice I’m there. And maybe I’ll find something useful. Wendy, please don’t do this. If you didn’t want me involved, you shouldn’t have made me care about you so much. Okay? So this is on you.

Hi. You better get that. Dr. Bronson.

Hello, commissioner Hernandez here. And what can I do for you? Commissioner? I need to see you down to the station. How soon can you get here?

I’m representing this woman because she was nearly killed by the same person who murdered my mother. I got to the hospital, and this poor woman was being grilled by a police officer, and she didn’t have counsel. EJ, why did you even go there in the first place? I thought she might need an attorney, and she did.

Well, never mind the fact that you’re running a major corporation and you haven’t practiced law in many a moon. My law license is still active and I am very motivated. Any enemy of Amos is automatically a friend of mine. Oh, honey, I can’t tell if you’re lying to me out of habits or to protect me. Oh, come on.

No. You come on. I think that you’re defending this woman because she knows something that you don’t want the cops to know. And excuse me, since I’m having your baby in a few short months, I think I deserve to know what that something is. Is

Sean? Well, it’s a notification that he just got all of the messages I’ve sent, so… At least I know he’s alive. But I… I don’t know why he’s not calling me back. You know, I don’t know why he’s ghosting me. Maybe he’s embarrassed. You know, for treating you so badly. I mean, drunk or not, he had no right to bring up PJ at all.

Yeah, but I did. I did. I cheated on him with a man that he despises. No, you and Sean were separated. That’s true. And I thought that, that Sean and I had gotten past all of this, but if you could have heard just the anger in his voice, what if Sean hasn’t actually forgiven me for my affair with EJ and what if that’s part of the reason he’s drinking?

Look, Sean, I’m not saying what we did was justified, okay? But I seriously think that you should give yourself a break. I mean, I know it must be really hard for you to get rid of that mental image of your wife being with another man. And you’re obviously still not over it. Yeah, but then I went and I threw it in her face.

And then I went and got even more drunk. And then… Then I cheated on her. Oh my god, listen, I… I lost control, and… Look, I feel like, I feel like I took advantage of you, and I’m so sorry, I… Can you please, please just stop apologizing? I lost control too. Okay, and it was all because I was hurt that Chanel broke things off with me.

And I’m the one who should feel especially bad. I owe your wife so much. Hold on, wait, you, wait, you feel bad? I mean, I’m, I’m the one, I’m her husband. I’m her husband, and she’s out there right now, she’s wondering, she’s waiting for a phone call back from me. Oh my god, I, I, I, what the hell am I gonna say? I mean, I don’t even know how I’m gonna tell her.

Uh, look, I know there’s a lot more for us to say, but I’ve gotta, I’ve gotta tell Belle where I’m at. So, is there any way that, you know, we could just not say anything about last night? Just until… Figure out what I’m going to say to her. Yeah, I, I understand. I won’t say a word. Thank you.

Well, I, uh, I should, I guess I should probably get going then. So, take care of yourself. You too. And, good luck.

Hey. When you see Sean, try to keep in mind that it was the alcohol talking last night, not him. Not the man you love. Unless he’s drinking again. Can I give you some advice? If he is drinking, do not engage. Tell him that you will not talk to him until he’s sober. It’s the best thing you can do for him.

Right. I’m gonna go get some air. And who knows, maybe he’ll call soon. Bye. Bye.

Sean? Where the hell did you come from?

Hey, look, you had eight hours on a plane to think about everything that could go wrong. Yeah, tell me what could go right. What could go right? We have nothing to go on except those woo woo visions that I had. And who knows if I’m gonna get another one. Wait, wait, wait a minute. You convinced me that those encounters were not hallucinations, that maybe Susan has ESP and wants to reach you.

Okay, but maybe you were right. Why me? Why me? I am the one who drove her off of the cliff into a ditch and almost killed her! I don’t know, maybe she thinks you owe her, Ava, but she sent you a signal that we should be looking for here. Right. A signal. Right. Okay. But, if Susan is so damn anxious for me to find her, then, then, why didn’t she give me an address?

Why did she just talk in code? I mean, if you hadn’t figured out that the big smoke meant London… We’d still be in Salem. Yeah, okay, but we’re not. We’re here, right now, and we’re ahead of the cops. Ava, look at me.

It’s gonna work out. I got a good feeling about it. Okay. Great. I guess we’ll go on that, then, I guess.

Susan better send me another sign real quick. Before her baby boy comes and finishes off the job.

Yes, Nicole, I’m, I’m, I’m sorry. I’m sorry for stonewalling you. But, as we discussed before, this is about protecting you. Oh, stop. We both know what’s going on here. And do I have to point out it’s going to be really inconvenient if I’m giving birth and you’re in prison? I’m not going to prison. No one knows what I’ve done.

Yeah, no one knows but your clients. And you’re probably Rafe’s number one suspect after what Ava did to Susan, and he could cut her a sweet deal in exchange for your hide. My client isn’t going to sell me out as long as I guarantee her safety. Nicole, I wouldn’t put at risk anything that we have for anything.

Mr. DeMare? It’s Wendy. There’s something I want you to see. I’m in a meeting. No, it’s… It’s okay. I don’t have any more questions. I’m gonna go do that research. Would you just try not to freak out? This acquisition is nothing to freak out about.

Love you. Love you.

So, what can I do for you? No, this shouldn’t take long. I just want to make sure I’m on track. Something.

This won’t take a long trip. I apologize for the inconvenience. Also, we’re having to track you down last night at the Salem Inn. Interrupting you and your girlfriend. No, it’s, uh… It’s all good. I’m glad you did. I I I needed to know what was going on. And, uh, I’m sorry I wasn’t much help. Actually, you were very helpful.

Yeah, and, uh, I’m hoping you can be helpful again. Yeah, I just, I want my mom to be okay. Yeah, it’s gotta be tough. Not knowing where she is.

But there’s good news. Yeah? Yes, we know for a fact that your mother was alive and well at 9pm last night. IPM. Mm hmm. Yeah. Thanks to an eyewitness who spotted her and Michael’s. Yeah. Got a real good look at them. Well, that’s, that’s good. Yeah. Funny thing, though. Uh, they were spotted in the alley right behind your building.

Really? Mm hmm. So I have to ask you. Have you seen your mom since we last talked?

Yeah. Yeah, I have.

Look, when I got home last night, my mom and Michaels were there. She and I talked for a little while, and then they left. How’d they get in? Fire escape. That explains why they were seen in the alley. Well, that must have been rough. Emotional, you know. Seen your mom after someone tried to kill her? Was. She asked for your help.

She knew I couldn’t do anything for her, and so she left. They left. Right. Any idea where they went? I can’t say. You can’t say, or you won’t say. Look, I haven’t lied to you, man. Can I go now?

You should tell the people who are covering for you at the hospital, that you’re held up. You’re not going anywhere. But I don’t have anything more to say. So you can sit here, and you can think about, um, the obstruction charges that you could be facing for failing to tell me that you saw your mother.

That should fill the time.

This is quite lengthy. Well, I was told to design a system wide upgrade. So I did. I wanted you to see it, because it could be really expensive. If you want modifications, I could redo the design. Hmm. But take your time. I’ll just read the spectator. Oh my gosh. What? Ava Vitale just escaped Bayview last night.

Yes, I know. Right. I guess the police must have told you right away. Because of your connection to her. Your unfortunate connection. I’m really sorry to hear about what happened to your mother. So am I. My mother was a very special person. So it says here the police don’t know where Miss Vitale is. That’s kind of scary, considering all the things she’s done.

But I guess you have good security here and at your house. Wendy, if you want me to give this my full attention, you’re going to have to stop talking. Hey,

Susan. It’s me. Ava. Here in London, and I, uh, I’d really appreciate it if you would give me another sign.

Something? Anything.

You see what I mean? Good, because you’re tired, you’re punchy, Ava, you didn’t close your eyes the whole flight, the whole flight! Okay, yeah, okay, and you’re not punchy at all, right? Because you can sleep wherever and whenever you want, because you’re not afraid of anything, because you’re an ex Navy SEAL!

And you’re a Vitaly, so act like one!

You wanna go first in the bathroom? Sure. I’ll do that. And when I come out, maybe you will stop sounding like a Broken record.

Belle is just here. She was worried about you. Uh, yeah, yeah. I’m just, you know, I’m just trying to figure out what it is that I’m going to say. You know, we’ve got a lot to talk about. We sure do. I’m assuming she told you about the fight. Yeah, she said you got into a fight and you didn’t come home last night.

So when you left her, you decided to come here? Uh, yeah. I mean, I, I, uh, I ran into Jada and I told her about the fight and, uh, she said to me that I could just crash here, so. Because she’s working for Laetia. And what about Talia? Talia? She lives here, too.

Belle! Oh, hey, Nicole. Uh, I, I was wondering about Sean. I, I know Victor’s funeral was yesterday. It must have been really hard on him. Yeah, yeah, it was. He’s not in good shape. I’m, I’m truly sorry. Thank you. How are you feeling? Gosh, you must be due soon, huh? January. I’m really excited. Aw, I bet EJ is really excited too.

Yeah, yeah, he’s, he’s on board with this baby and especially now since there’s no uncertainties. It was really hard on EJ and, and Eric. And now, I God, you know, I, I’m so sorry that Eric and Sloane lost their baby. Yeah, yeah, that was rough. How’s Eric doing? Oh, I was actually just with him. It sounds like he and Sloan are planning to adopt.

Oh! Oh, well, that’s great. Good for them. Yeah, you know, Eric’s always wanted a kid, and I’m, I just know he’ll be a wonderful father. Yeah, he definitely will be. Uh, yeah, yeah, no, I just remembered. Yeah, Talia, she’s, uh, you know, she’s working, too. Uh, at the hospital. You know, the late shift. Sorry, I’m just, I’m super slow right now because I drank a lot last night.

So this is what kept you from going home? Yeah. Oh. Hey, look, listen, I’ll, uh, catch up with you later, okay? Hey, wait up. Belle knows you saw her messages. She deserves to know you’re alright, or you’re gonna be. No, you’re right, you’re right. Listen, I’m gonna, I’m gonna text her right now. And, um, I’m gonna find out where she is and I’m gonna go meet up with her.

I hope the coffee’s fresh. I just pulled the night shift and I’m totally effed out. Coffee coming right up. Uh, you’re Talia, right? Jada’s sister, right? Right. Hey, I’m Sean Brady. Sean, I know your sister from the police department. Um, I spoke to her and she said it was okay that I crash. So, we don’t mind.

Yeah, no problem. Thank you so much. Oh, well, there she is. Bells, bells at the square. Um, yeah, wish me luck. Hey, you don’t need luck. Just make it right. Yeah.

Hey. I thought I told you to go home. I was on my way home. Uh huh. But then, my route, it took me by Tripp Johnson’s building. You know, where Officer Thompson picked up that lead on Ava’s whereabouts. Mm hmm. So, on a hunch… I decided to check it out myself. And?

What, did you… Did you find something?

You did a good job on this. I want some time to think about it, and then I’ll get back to you. Great. And… Hey, sorry if I overstepped before. What do you mean? Well, talking about Eva Vitale and your mother, it’s… None of my business. Don’t worry about it. I’m due in a meeting. May I hold onto this? Sure.

Oh, there is one thing you could do for me. Name it. My mouse is acting up. Probably just needs a new battery or something. I’ll take care of it. Thank you.

God. He forgot his phone.

Wow. Hey. Eric. Hey. I heard about what happened with Sloane. That she had a miscarriage. Yeah. I am so sorry. Thank you. I really appreciate you saying that. And I also appreciate you for what you did for Sean last night. I mean, you must have noticed he was drunk. Well, if he didn’t explain it to you, maybe he did, but he and his wife, they kind of got into a fight last night and, uh, he didn’t want to go home.

That was really cool of you to let him stay here. Uh, yeah, right, no, no problem, no problem at all. Um, but speaking of crashing, I’m, I’m pretty beat, so I’ll, I’ll see you.

Okay. Well, I’ll tell Eric you were asking about him. Oh, gosh, no. Don’t, don’t do that. I, I’m just happy that Eric and Sloane were able to get past what happened. Sean. Hey, Nicole. Hi. Um, I’m, I’m really sorry about Victor. He, he was a true original. Yeah, that’s for sure. I appreciate it. Well, bye.

Hey. How you feeling? Hungover. Yeah, I bet. So, where’d you sleep last night?

What the hell? You’ve got to be kidding me. What?

Tell me you didn’t sleep with Sean Brady.

Sorry to keep you waiting. It’s okay. Give me a chance to think about those obstruction charges you tried to scare me with. I decided it all. You had to be bluffing. I mean, what jury is going to convict me for trying to protect my own mother after a hit woman tried to kill her? That’s a good point. I forget the obstruction charge.

Yeah. Turns out I didn’t need it. What does that mean? It means you could now be facing the charge of… Aiding and abetting a villain.

Go ahead. Open it.

Maybe, just maybe, Ichi treated messages with that woman who tried to kill Eva. God, I just need to get past this lock screen. May I

help you?

What are you doing? I’m, I’m getting ready for bed. No, no, no. You’re not going to sleep on the chairs. It’s, it’s, it’s okay. I’m, I’m fine. Come on. One, one night in that fleabag motel in Salem is, is one thing. But you know, we don’t even know where to begin looking for Susan, or if she’s even alive, or in London.

So, you know, we could be doing this for a while.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Thomas: These numbers for hope for the future are still coming in strong, and carter, with that paris deal he just closed, I mean, that’s gonna blow up our exposure even more.

Hope: Well, I mean, what do you think of katie’s idea about meeting with leading climate experts? You know, utilizing upcycling, reducing our material waste?

Thomas: I mean, we could just put some focus into the recycling program we already have. Tell people to send their old clothes in, we’ll recycle them for you. I think it’s a brilliant idea.

Hope: Well, you are a brilliant designer, so… speaking of brilliant designers, your dad and eric. Uh, what do we think about that fashion showdown?

Thomas: [ Laughs ] Well, I don’t know. It doesn’t make any sense, to me, at least. I mean, why– why focus on couture when– when dad’s already got that, right? But also, hope for the future is what’s blowing up. Why not put our energy into that?

Carter: So, you and eric will be in competition with each other.

Ridge: Yeah. The plan is to preview two couture lines, and the buyers will determine the winner.

Carter: Hm. And you think that’s gonna be you.

Ridge: Carter. Come on, man.

[ Both chuckling ] Ever since I looked through that magic keyhole in rome, I feel inspired.

Carter: Ah, inspired by brooke. I’m glad I forced you to look through that keyhole.

Ridge: Me too.

Carter: In terms of the competition, ridge, we have a lot of logistics to work through, but… when it comes to your son, rj’s working with eric now. How do you feel about it?

Brooke: Well, well, well. I can see that you and eric have been hard at work.

Rj: Oh, yeah. Yeah, it’s been awesome. I’m, uh… I definitely feel very lucky to work with him.

Brooke: Yeah. I heard about the showdown.

Rj: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: You sure you wanna go through with that?

Rj: Granddad’s set on it, I’m excited about it and may the best man win. It’s gonna be fun, I think. I don’t know.

[ Brooke chuckles wryly ]

Brooke: Yeah. Just, uh… I’m a little nervous about it.

Rj: Why? Why are you nervous? Oh, I know why. You’re nervous that granddad’s gonna wipe the floor with dad? It’s okay. I understand.

Brooke: Uh, no. I would never underestimate eric forrester, and I certainly do believe in your talents.

Rj: Thank you.

Brooke: It’s just that I’m afraid this preview might pit father against son.

Rj: I– I agree. It does feel weird to be working for forrester and not to be working with dad. I mean, I always thought if I did end up working here, we’d be working together, not against each other.

Brooke: Yeah. That’s what he thought too.

Rj: Yeah.

Brooke: But he’s happy that you’re designing at all.

Rj: He told me that. We had a really good talk, and he said that.

Brooke: Oh, good. I’m glad. Because you know you’re very special to him, right? He loves you very much.

Katie: I’m not opposed to any of it but– oh! Ah, good, you’re both here. I just came from seeing carter, and he has a meeting with ridge. Imagine my surprise when I found out that the head of publicity doesn’t know anything about this fashion showdown. And, to be clear, the head of publicity is me. I don’t like being the last to know it makes my job very hard.

Donna: And don’t forget, rj’s also designing with eric.

Katie: And that. I need to get out in front of this thing, put the proper spin on it. So, is it really happening?

Carter: Ridge, you’ve always wanted rj to start designing for the family company.

Ridge: Yes, that’s been the plan for a long time.

Carter: Right, but he’s not working with you. He’s designing with eric.

Ridge: Carter, he’s designing. All right? That’s good. He’ll work with me soon enough.

Carter: It is good, but it has to be a bit of a blow, right? He chose your father over you.

Hope: This is stunning, thomas. I mean, this dress is going to have so much movement.

Thomas: Yeah. Actually, I did wanna do something new with it, so can you hand me a pencil?

Hope: Sure.

Douglas: Oh, hey, mom! Hi, dad! Pam said you were in here.

Hope: Sweetheart, w– what–

Thomas: Yeah, no. What are you doing here? I thought I was supposed to pick you up from mom’s later.

Douglas: I wanted to talk to mom about something.

Thomas: Okay. Uh, what’s up?

Hope: Yeah. Douglas, what’s going on? Are you tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?

Katie: So, eric is working here because he thinks ridge is trying to push him out of the company?

Donna: Well, eric definitely feels that ridge is not supportive of his need to design.

Brooke: Ridge just thinks his dad shouldn’t have to concern himself doing a whole new collection. I mean, think about the stress involved.

Rj: And that’s where I come in though. I mean, I– I’ve been supporting him, and it’s been going okay. I mean, I think– I think it’s fine.

Brooke: Yeah, I know he appreciates it.

Donna: Eric treasures working with his grandson. And rj– rj’s innately talented. And I’m sure his contribution to this collection is gonna make a huge impact.

Rj: Yeah, he’s had a huge impact on me. I mean, his– his passion for this has made me realize that I have a passion for design. I– I will do whatever it takes to make this happen.

Ridge: You know what, carter? You’re right. This is not the way I wanted rj to start his career at forrester. I thought it was gonna be me and my two boys working together. And that will happen. But I– [ Sighs ] Rj, he’s really, really good. He’s really talented.

Carter: You’ve told him that?

Ridge: Course I told him that. I love him, I support him. And as soon as I win this little fashion battle, I– we’re gonna do something together, something special.

Carter: That very humble of you to say.

Ridge: I don’t have to be humble. I earned this. I earned my place. I’ve learned a lot from my dad, but I’m not afraid to go against him. Not for a long time.

Carter: Ridge, there’s no question that you earned this, but don’t count out the great eric forrester.

Hope: Is everything okay?

Douglas: Yeah. There’s just a lot going on. Never feel like I can talk about it around beth. So, I had ben’s mom come drop me off here.

Thomas: Did you wanna talk to you mom alone?

Douglas: Yeah.

Thomas: Okay. No worries. I will leave you to it, but just let me know if you need anything.

Hope: All right, come on. Let’s sit down so we can talk. What’s going on? You know you can talk to me about anything, right?

Douglas: I know. I’m just worried about you. I can see that liam moving out makes you sad.

Hope: Well, honey, I am sad about what’s happening between liam and me, but… that’s life. Sometimes things just don’t work out the way you want them to. But, hey, you have nothing to be concerned about, okay? I’m the mom here anyways. You aren’t supposed to be worrying about me.

Douglas: You’re the best, mom. I love you and beth so much. We were a family with liam.

Hope: Yeah, we were.

Douglas: And I was just thinking maybe we could be a family again with dad. Ma, ma-

Hope: Douglas, where is this coming from?

Douglas: I promise dad didn’t ask me to say anything to you about us being a family. I know that’s something he might’ve done in the past.

Hope: Oh, sweetie. Your dad has done a lot of work on himself to become a better man, a better father to you. He’s proven that people can change, and I hope you always believe that too. He loves you so much, and so do I, so don’t ever doubt that.

Douglas: I don’T. I love you both too. That’s why I had this idea. I hate seeing you so sad. You deserve to be happy all the time. And I know dad loves you. Maybe you love him?

Hope: Douglas, feelings can be complicated sometimes, especially when it comes to love.

Douglas: I just think that if you gave dad another chance, he could make you happy again. We could all be happy together.

Katie: Rj is on his way to the office. I told him not to talk to the press under any circumstances. Honestly, I’d like to keep this under wraps for as long as we can.

Brooke: Okay. Sounds like the right thing to do. And who knows? Maybe it won’t even happen at all, which might be the best.

Katie: So, you think that because ridge and eric don’t want to work together, it might cause tension between the two of them?

Brooke: Well, and for rj and ridge as well.

Donna: Okay, the way i understood is ridge didn’t wanna work with eric. He basically pushed him out, didn’t wanna listen to his ideas and eric got offended. Felt like he was getting put out to pasture.

Brooke: What? No! No, that was not his intention at all.

Donna: Well, that’s the way it came across. Anyway, I don’t even understand why ridge is so adamant about eric retiring. He should want to work with him. You know, maybe– maybe even give his old office back. Collaborate with him on this collection like he wanted to.

Brooke: Eric was the one who shut him down.

Katie: Why can’t ridge just give him this collection? I mean, god knows he’s earned it. He’s the founder of the company.

Brooke: Yes, but ridge is the head of the couture line, and that line is doing so well. So is hope for the future. And the bottom line is, ridge is ceo. He runs the company. He makes the decisions.

Thomas: So, granddad’s still, um, wanting to do his own new collection, huh? This whole fashion showdown thing, I just– I don’t get it.

Ridge: Well, he’s not backing down, so I won’t either.

Rj: Hey.

Thomas: Hey, look. It is forrester creations’ new fashion designer.

Rj: You heard?

Thomas: I did. Yeah. Although, we haven’t had an initiation quite yet.

Rj: Oh, I think I’ll skip the cloaks and the candles for now. I’m just here picking up some supplies. I’ll be out of your hair in a second, okay?

Thomas: Some supplies for granddad?

Rj: Yep.

Thomas: Okay. Well, you know, dad and I were actually just talking about this whole fashion showdown thing. Um… do you really think that’s a good idea?

Rj: Yeah, I think it’s a good idea. I wouldn’t be working on it if I didn’T.

Thomas: Sure. Yeah. Um… but look… dad has, uh, been working really hard and killing it with couture. And hope and I are doing a great job with hope for the future. Maybe, we should focus on what’s working, right?

Rj: Well, thomas, you’re just assuming that what granddad’s working on isn’t going to work. I mean, I’ve seen how this thing’s progressed. It’s incredible. He’s never done designs like this before in his life.

Thomas: Yeah, he’s never done designs like this with your help.

Rj: Yeah, it’s with my help. I’m learning a lot from him though.

Thomas: Yeah, no. And there’s– definitely there’s a learning curve to this job, a hundred percent. But look, um… the things that we’ve been working on, they’re doing really well. We wanna continue on that direction. I mean, I think that dad and i don’t think that what granddad’s bringing is really in keeping with the direction we wanna take the company.

Rj: The direction that you and dad want to take the company? You really think that that should trump the fact that eric forrester created the company and that he’s the heart and soul of everything that goes on around here?

Thomas: No.

Rj: Whatever direction that you guys are taking the company, you’re doing it on eric forrester’s legacy.

Hope: Sweetheart… I love that you care so much about our family.

Douglas: You’re my mom. I want you to be happy.

Hope: Well, you make me very, very happy. You know that, don’t you? And I appreciate your support. But no worrying about me, okay? Mommy’s strong. She’s gonna be just fine.

Douglas: I know, but I also believe that dad could make you feel better. Maybe not so sad? I’m a pretty good judge of character.

Hope: Yeah, you are, aren’t you?

Douglas: Look, dad wasn’t always the best dad. He made mistakes. But like you said, he’s not like that anymore. I don’t know if you’ll ever be able to completely forgive him for everything he’s done, but I really love seeing you so, if you could find a way to forgive him, even just a little bit, I know we would make a great family. And we could make your sadness go away.

Katie: Eric founded forrester creations. His sense of timeless style has defined the company since the very beginning.

Brooke: I don’t disagree, and in no way am I trying to diminish all of the wonderful things that he’s done for the company

Donna: Really, brooke? Just the company? He transformed the entire fashion industry. Okay? His designs are iconic.

Brooke: Of course that’s true. But all things must pass. And we’re not trying to be cruel here, donna. It’s just that I do agree with ridge. It is time for eric to put down the pencil and enjoy his life. Why should he carry the burden of creating a whole new collection? And you know what? That’s what people are gonna remember. His last act. So, why would he risk it? Why would he risk his entire legacy for that?

Donna: Oh. Okay, I get it. You don’t think he can win, do you? In fact, you don’t think that eric stands a chance against ridge?

Brooke: Forrester creations was defined by eric. But now it’s defined by ridge.

Rj: Dad, you didn’t have to ask thomas to leave. I mean, I know he has a different opinion than me, even though it’s the wrong opinion.

Ridge: I thought the two of us should talk.

Rj: I know what you’re gonna say, that you agree with him. Dad, you haven’t seen granddad creating recently. I mean, he’s full of passion and energy.

Ridge: No, I’ve seen him–

Rj: It’s intoxicating!

Ridge: Yes, I get it. I get it. Loyal you are towards him.

Rj: I feel like if granddad wants to make one final grand finale collection. I feel like he should be able to do it without having to beg you to do it. I mean, isn’t that degrading? Imagine if someone made you do that?

Ridge: Degrading? I’m the ceo of this company. It’s my job to oversee all the lines and see what sells. It’s what I do.

Rj: I know. I just… granddad, he just, he really wants to create. And he– and he’s full of these great ideas, and he– I just think that if you supported him and you gave him the budget to finish it, I mean, I feel like that’s just the right thing to do.

Ridge: Well, we’re gonna– we’re gonna settle this on the runway.

Rj: Yeah? I mean, that means you and i are gonna be competing.

Ridge: That’s okay. Get to see what you’ve got.

Rj: Oh, yeah? Same here. Curious.

[ Ridge laughs ]

Ridge: Hey, let me ask you something.

Rj: Yeah?

Ridge: Ever since you came back, I’ve been wanting you to work here and the answer was always no. But now you’re working with granddad, so somewhere along the way, the answer became yes. Why is that? What am I missing? Eric: What’s wrong with my hand? I can’t– I can’t grip a pencil. I can’t design. And if I can’t do that, it’s pretty much game over for my career. Unless you can help me.

Rj: Right now, I just want to be there for granddad. And I just wanna help him in any way that I can ’cause I love him. Don’t get me wrong. I love you too.

Ridge: And I love you.

Ow! What the hell was that for? Oh, don’t you play innocent with me. I just told you what it’s for. You’re cheating on me with your wife! I don’t even know… What are you talking about? Oh, please spare me. I just got an earful from Gwen. She wouldn’t shut up about how the two of you have been shagging your asses off.

Like you’re a horny Popeye who just had a huge serving of spinach. So stop playing the coquettish ingenue and tell me the truth. Have you been playing me this whole time?

You already knew that Dimitri was cheating on you with Leo? Of course I knew. Matthew may be a world class dissembler, but those lustful looks that he’d been giving my husband… I’d have to be bloody brain dead not to have noticed. So, you’ve been dissembling as well? Pretending to be in love with Dimitri when you knew all along that he was crazy for Leo?

Actually, no.

I admit, yes, in the beginning I was, um, a bit of a naive fool. When Dimitri proposed to me and I agreed to be his wife, I thought, Wow, your luck has really turned around. You’re about to marry the man of your dreams.

But I am relieved to report that I have jumped off of cloud nine and I have landed safely. And I’m now back to being my cynical, misanthropic


Why was my grandfather meeting with you, Mr. Malonis? Oh, please, call me Constantine. So your grandfather did not tell you? No, he did not. He only told his wife that he was going to visit his son, Bo. But Bo doesn’t live anywhere near Greece. Which is why we were shocked when his plane went down in the Mediterranean.

Obviously, he didn’t want any of us to know where he was. What was he doing in Greece?

Room service.

Finally, it’s about damn time.

Oh my god!

Daddy! Like

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

I have to say, it feels pretty damn good to have Dimitri right where we want him. Thanks to us brilliantly uncovering his deep, dark secret. A torrid love affair with his wife’s best friend? And pretty soon, we will have DiMera in the palm of our hand. But why stop there? Why not make Dimitri hand over the von Leuschner money, too?

Playing you? Leo, what does that even I just told you! Gwen spent all morning rhapsodizing about your round the clock shagging, going into excruciating detail, bragging about positions I’ve never even heard of. Me! It’s a lie. She’s lying. She’s lying. Wait, what? The only physical intimacy that Gwen and I have shared in the last 24 hours is when she handed me the TV remote last night.

My hand grazed hers for a second. That’s it. Really? Yes, really. I swear.

Well, that doesn’t make any sense. Why would she lie? So when did you figure all this out?

Well, when Leo turned up to my honeymoon. Claiming that he was there for some secret Madonna concert. It is the Madonna concert. You know, that’s when I started to get suspicious. Matty fancies himself a material girl, but it was all too coincidental. Huh. But before that? No idea? No. As I said, yes, I was a naive fool.

But then once my suspicions were aroused, I started to look back on all the little moments where I should have bloody been one of the two of them. Should have seen them for the lying snakes that they are.

Daddy! Oh my God! It’s so good to see you! It’s been forever! Come here. It’s so good to see you too, my darling. But, what are you doing here? I was told Alex and Brady were staying in these rooms. Yeah, yeah, they are. They should, um, actually be back soon. And you didn’t ask my question. And it doesn’t take an experienced ISA agent to figure out what a father would instinctively know.

This is about Brady, isn’t it?

I did not plan to meet with Victor. He just appeared and I could tell something was very wrong. Well, he’s been really upset about his son. Yes, his son. So sad. He just come from a visit with him and it was evident the trip was very difficult for him. Yeah, I’m sure. We are all friends, I’ve known Victor for a long time.

So I could tell something else was on his mind. Something other than his ailing son.

So you want to go after Dimitri’s inheritance, too? Why not? I mean, we’ve got him right where we want him. And the best part is, if we get our hands on that full militia money, we wouldn’t have to share it with any single member of this family. We get the whole enchilada, baby.

Well… When Leo turned up to my honeymoon with that flimsy, ridiculous excuse about being there for a Madonna concert, that’s when my antenna went up, and as I said, that is when I started to think about all the little moments. Ah. Please, do go on. Well, the first one was right after we got engaged. It’s just I haven’t heard from Dimitri today, which is a bit odd, don’t you think, given that we, we just got engaged.

Oh! Oh my god, my team,



a terrible mistake. a confession to make. The reason you haven’t heard from Dimitri is because… He’s been with me. So… Leo told you that Dimitri was with him? Yeah. And he very quickly explained why. And it made sense at the time. Once, I was on board with the wedding. Your groom shared with me a capital S secret.

What kind of secret? Well, it’s really more of a surprise. For you. For the wedding. You know, but as strange as I thought it was, two of them concocting this surprise for my wedding, I just kept telling myself I was being paranoid. Like all those times when Dimitri wasn’t interested in making love to me.

Well, even if nothing happened between you and Gwen last night, you can’t say that the two of you never… Ugh, God, I can’t even say the word. Which is shag, by the way, because that’s what Gwen claims you do night and day, 24 7, round the damn clock. Leo, she is my wife. She does believe that we got married because of love.

If she and I never shagged, well then I suppose that jig would be up, don’t you? Fine. I get it. At least tell me you’re not enjoying it. Hey. I swear to you, I am sleeping with Gwen out of obligation. I’m sleeping with you because… Because what?

Because I love you.

But if we take Dimitri’s shares and his inheritance, what incentive does he have to keep us quiet? I mean, it’s Blackmail 101, Gabby, right? He has to have something to lose in order for us to exploit him. I hate to say it, but you may be right. Maybe. I mean, there has to be something we can do to get a bigger payday out of this.

Look, I love the way your mind works, but in this particular instance, I don’t think we can afford to be greedy.

And not only was Dimitri just completely uninterested in having sex with me, but… He was the very first person that I went and told. I’m sorry, honey. I really do think you’re overreacting. That’s easy for you to say. You’re not the one that he refused to have sex with.

Bloody errands, indeed. I mean, I, I touched him, and he pulled away. Oh my God, Matty, I’m… Why wouldn’t he want to have sex with the woman that he supposedly loves?

God, that Matty, that… Clever little schemer that he is. He did manage to mollify me. Somewhat. Just as he did when I walked into the room to find Dimitri in his underwear. Well, this all must seem rather strange, Gwen, but I assure you there is a perfectly reasonable explanation. I’m waiting. Well, I… Dimitri does not have a proper suit for tomorrow, so I convinced him to try on one of mine.

You have plenty of suits. Yeah, but they’re also blah. I told him he needed something special, something with a little pizzazz. You know, after all, this is a once in a lifetime event. I knew Matthew wasn’t being completely honest with me, but… I thought I knew why. Come on. You honestly thought that I would believe that he would fit into one of your medium suits?

This one’s a woman’s large. It doesn’t matter what size it is. You didn’t want to see Dimitri in it, you wanted to see him out of it. What are you suggesting? That you wanted to see my fiancé in his underwear. I’m

so stupid, aren’t I?

I know that Matty is always keen to have crushes on straight men, but still I should have… I should have known. Especially when Matthew Perry came into the picture. What?

You… You love me. Me? I do. I suppose I only realized it when that lawyer Roth said he could see it so clearly. These feelings that I have for you, they go so far beyond just attraction or lust. But it’s those two, right? Yes. Yes, it is those two. But what I feel for you is so much more than that. It’s missing you when you’re not around.

It’s missing your smile and your laugh. It’s wanting to share everything with you. Above all, it’s… It’s just wanting to make you happy. So yeah, I think it bears repeating Leo Stark, I love you.

I love you too, Dimitri.

I knew you hadn’t really gotten over Brady, but to chase him all the way to Greece? Who says I chased him? Okay, fine, I followed him. But that’s because I’m helping him and Alex with their investigation. What, you don’t think I can? No, I, I know you can. But apparently they don’t want your help or else you’ll be out investigating with them right now.

Oh, Theresa, darling, you are a brilliant young woman with a good heart. Which is why I hate to see you chasing someone who doesn’t appreciate that. If Brady can’t understand how wonderful you are, then he doesn’t deserve you.

So, my grandfather seemed worried about something besides Bo. Yes, he did. But when I asked him about it, he got very quiet. Quiet? Um, Constantine, my grandfather called his attorney. To have his will destroyed. This was this was surprising to us. We didn’t know anything about that. Did he mention anything about that to you?

No, he did. Don’t say anything to me about the will.

But he did mention a letter.

So what did Victor say about this letter? Only that it was of great importance to him. Then we shared a toast of Ouzo, and he left. Excuse me for a moment. Of course.

That can’t be it. Can it? I mean, do you really think Uncle Vic came all the way out here just because of some letter? I don’t know. I mean, we both know when, when that man said… His mind is something, I mean, I was, hold on a minute, Kayla, Kayla told me when Bo had her captive in that wine cellar at Granddad’s old house that she found a box full of old letters.

Look, I know you’re right, Daddy. Okay, I, I know Brady doesn’t deserve me, and I should have enough self respect to move on, and believe me, I’ve tried, you know, I’ve had other boyfriends, and I just can’t help comparing them to Brady, and None of them measure up. Oh, darling. But I’m trying to play it cool, okay?

I swear, actually. Brady thinks I have a thing for Alex. Which I don’t. Alex Kiriakis? He’s Brady’s cousin. Yeah, so? Well, that rather depends on how far you’re planning to take this deception. Well, I don’t know how far I’m planning on taking it, and… You know, Alex is really cool, so he’s handsome, and he’s rich, and it’s not like it’s going to be a hardship for me.

Sweetheart, if, if you’re planning to have a fling with Alex just to make Brady jealous… I’m not really planning anything, I’m just…

I just thought, I don’t know, I’m holding on to hope, you know? That maybe, maybe if Brady spends enough time with me, that he’ll realize I’ve changed, and… And then maybe he’ll fall in love with me again.

Matthew Perry. Chandler himself. Oh, I didn’t tell you. How? How? I can’t help but wonder, who is this mystery man who’s lying in bed naked waiting for you? According to your contacts, his initials are MP. Ah, yes, MP. Matthew Perry. What? The actor from Friends? What? Who? Chandler? No, no. It’s a guy that I met on matchup.com.

I know what you were thinking. Oh no, I don’t think you wanna know what I’m thinking. Okay. Yeah. Fine, fine. But see, at that point I thought that Matti had his secret mp, and so I just stopped. I stopped worrying about Dmitri and Matt. Even after he interrupted our wedding? And then, on our honeymoon? Why are you here?

Feel free to answer any time now. You mean, why did I fly here, to Iceland, to surprise you, on your honeymoon? Yes. Well, isn’t it obvious? No, I’m afraid not. I’m here… Because today is Madonna’s birthday! Hang on, so you’re telling me you flew all the way out here to Iceland to tell me that it’s Madonna’s birthday?

Would that be strange? That would be insane! Well, yeah, because I did not come just to share that news, obviously. Hello? Matty? Why did you come? Because it’s, it’s, it’s… The thing is, it’s not just any old birthday. Madge is turning 65! Quite a milestone, right? And to celebrate, she’s giving a super secret concert.

Private show, very exclusive. I believed him at first. But then… But the more I thought about it, the crazier it seemed. I mean, I had no proof that anything was actually going on.

But that is until the very next day, when… Leo came into my room. So, torn up over Victor’s death, or he was pretending to be, where I popped out to get him a nice little Icelandic treat. And then, when I came back… Stop it, stop it, stop! Stop! What if Gwen comes back and finds out you were as gay as a Cher collage?

You can tell her you were just consoling me.

I’ll be quick.

And then I remembered. The day I found Leo hiding someone in his room.

What was that? What was what? Noise from the loo. I didn’t hear anything. You liar. You’re hiding somebody in there, aren’t you?

And I know exactly who it is. You were

sexting with yesterday. Remember, I saw your phone. I saw his initials, MP. As in Matthew, not the actor from Friends, Perry. 20 points. MP is not coming out because he doesn’t want you to see him. Why not? Because he’s a married

man. So then I knew the truth. MP did not stand for Matthew Perry. Ah, Sono Chandler. Knives Chandler. Okay, so what does MP stand for?

You’re seriously considering marrying that Teutonic twat? You don’t even know him. Well, enough, in the biblical sense. You slept with him once, and now you’re thinking of tying the knot? What, does he have a magic penis?

Magic penis? Exactly.

Okay, now that that’s settled. What did you mean before you said we’ve got trouble? Ah, yes, right, that. Okay, um, brace yourself. Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no. She’s carrying your child, isn’t she? The two of you are going to be bound together forever, raising Dimitri Jr. No, stop, please. Gwen is not pregnant. Oh, okay. Thank God.

So what kind of trouble do we have? Gabby and Stefan have discovered that we’re sleeping with each other behind Gwen’s back, and they’re using it as blackmail. You’re joking. That’s a joke. You’re joking, right? Not joking. Well, how could this be? We have been so careful, so discreet. How could they have figured it out?

Well, apparently they found a hotel receipt, proof that I paid for your room in Iceland. But that doesn’t mean that we’re… And they got that little brat Rachel to confirm it. Apparently she… Saw us having a little sleepover.

I covet the von Leuchtturm money as much as you do. But I think we need to stay focused on our original plan. If Demi When Dimitri gives us his shares, and Megan’s, Gabby, we are going to have a huge block at Temera. And we will almost be guaranteed to be the deciding votes. So if Chad and EJ want any kind of say They will have to kowtow to us.

I admit, the idea of EJ groveling for our approval does have a certain appeal. And if we’re strategic about it, maybe, eventually, we could run the whole company. And then… We can kick E. J. out on his ass.

Dammit, there are far too many nosy, obnoxious children wandering around that house. Right, well we probably should have recognized that before taking any chances because now Gabby and Stefan are demanding that I hand over my shares at DiMera plus my mother’s or they’re gonna tell Gwen everything. Well now I am officially schvitzing.

Please don’t tell me they want your inheritance too. Oh no, God no. Just the shares. Although I’d much rather not part with those either. What are we gonna do? There’s only one thing we can do. Which is? Kill them. Kill them right. Wait, what?

So… After I walked in on Dimitri and Leo on my honeymoon, no less, I finally knew the truth.

But I couldn’t figure out who I was angrier with, my so called husband or my so called BFF.

Angry and terribly hurt, as I’m sure you can imagine. Yeah. And I’m sure that flight home was so much fun. Oh, that was um, that was definitely a challenge to sit there for 10 bloody hours and not be able to strangle them both.

You know, as angry as I was, I couldn’t figure out why Dimitri wanted to marry me. Only to have an affair, right afterwards, with a man.

That is, until we came home here after our honeymoon and Dimitri sent me up there to unpack and he stayed down here with you. So you mean that you decided to do some eavesdropping, yes, Kristen?

Ah, correction. When we get our windfall, baby. Yeah, and that is only gonna happen if you convince this barrister, Mr. Roth, that your marriage is legit. Trust me, I can handle it. Mmm, can you? Because he called just before you got here and he was very eager to see you and Gwen. So, nephew, how are you gonna keep Gwen from finding out about your being an heir to a fortune when she has to meet the man who holds

the So you were planning to split the von Leuschner money with Dimitri all along, were you? Gwen, I had no idea that Dimitri was betraying you. Well, at least not to the… Egregious extent that he was. You see, he told me that he was sleeping with Leo only to keep him quiet. Hang on, Sue. You’re, you’re, you’re telling me that, that he doesn’t have feelings for Matty?

That he was just sleeping with him out of desperation? Oh, no. No, no, no, I, that’s what I thought, um, but Dimitri just told me that wasn’t the case. That what he and Leo have, it’s the real thing, they’re in love.

Right, kill Stefan and Gabi, ha ha, good one. Oh, I’m serious. You can’t be serious! Stefan is your uncle, Gabby’s your aunt, I think. So what? I barely know these people. Still, that’s like two less gifts under the Christmas tree. Not to mention it’s a horrific and heinous crime. Not to mention that not only am I schvitzing right now, but I actually feel like my head is going to explode, and oh god, you can’t be serious.

You are serious. Leo. You forget who I am. I nearly took out half of Salem with a peacock, remember? Yes, but that was during your world domination era. You’ve moved on to your gentleman of leisure, afternoon sex, and reality TV era. Right. As far as you’re concerned, I have. And you really don’t have to be any part of this, okay?

But I will be damned if I’m gonna let two newly discovered relatives ruin everything for me. So I’m gonna do everything I possibly can to make sure they do not. But all you have to do is sit back, keep your mouth shut, and pray. As

much as I wanted that Von Leuschner money, if we use Demetri’s shares to take control of DiMera, then we won’t have to share the pie. Or the enchilada. Or anything else. The whole buffet will be ours. Do you really think that Uncle Victor came all the way here for a box of letters? I mean, the guys probably sent hundreds of letters.

Well, these were obviously important to him. Alex, there were a bunch that he had sent to Caroline Brady. And she sent them back to him, marked return to sender. She was Bo’s mother. They just came from seeing Bo. My apologies. Oh, no, please, please. Uh, you have a business to run. We came unexpected. There is no need for an invitation when family is concerned.

And that’s what Victor was to me. So you, his nephew and grandson, you are both always welcome here. And if there is anything you need… Um, actually, actually, we were talking and we think that that letter that was very important to him might be at his childhood home. You said you knew the family. You know where that home is?

Of course I do. Victor liked me to keep an eye on things for him. I would be happy to show you. Listen, just like you look after me, Daddy, I gotta look after you, and that briefcase has got to go. I’m gonna order you a new one ASAP. No, no, no, this isn’t mine, it’s Victor’s. They, um, they recovered it from the wreckage.

They established it was in no way related to the crash, and that it just contains his personal effects. Some papers of a personal nature, legal documents, that sort of thing. I thought maybe Alex and Brady would like to take it home to Maggie. Yeah, yeah, of course. Uh, and I’ll, I’ll make sure they get it.

You can just leave it here with me. And hey, you know what? I ordered room service. There’s definitely plenty to share with you. Oh, I, I’m sorry, sweetheart. No, I, I really can’t stay. But please remember what I said about finding a man who, who’s worthy of you, hmm? Yeah. Okay, from here. Oh, I love you, Jelly Bean.

I love you too, Daddy.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking? That we don’t make an appearance at work and we get into that bed and not come out for the rest of the day? Why don’t we put that off until tomorrow? Because I think we’ve given Dimitri enough time to stew. Why don’t we go in for the kill? Yes ma’am.


I better go. Wait, you’re gonna go do it now? What? No, not now. No, these things take lots of planning. But I should go see Gwen. Wouldn’t want her to get suspicious. I’ll see you, my love.


See you.

Okay, that’s it. Okay, where are you going? Where do you think I’m going? I’m going to confront my so called husband. Okay, hold on. No, no, no, no, no. I think that you and I should turn the tables around on him. What are you saying? Are you saying that you and I should join forces and get back at Leo and Dimitri for what they did to us?

What do you say?


say let’s get him.

This was the wine cellar you mentioned. Do you have any idea where the letters might be? Kayla said that they were in an old metal box. Could this be it right here? Could be. I don’t know, I don’t see anything else.

Well, hopefully. This will give us all the answers that we need.

[ Gentle music playing ]

Brooke: Honey, I am so thrilled that you started to design and so is your father. I just don’t want working with eric to cause tension for your dad and your granddad. I know how you don’t like family drama.

Rj: This is granddad we’re talking about. This isn’t– there’s no reason my dad should be upset or concerned.

Ridge: Oh, there’s my son. The person I wanted to talk to. I understand you’re working with granddad.

Rj: Yeah. Well, I mean, I wanted to tell you, but he– he wanted to keep it all between us, so.

Brooke: I don’t think they were trying to keep secrets.

Ridge: I don’t think they were trying to tell me either. That’s the only one thing I gotta say to you, son. I am so, so happy you’re designing. Welcome to forrester. Good luck to you.

Donna: I love seeing you like this, in your element.

Eric: I haven’t felt this fulfilled in a long time. Professionally, I mean. I’m so excited. Putting this line together, doing all this with rj? It’s wonderful. It’s– it’s really wonderful. Then, of course, having you in my arms is pretty good too.

Donna: I– I saw ridge here earlier. Does he share your enthusiasm?

Eric: Well…

[ Knocking on door ] It’s open.

Carter: Hey.

Donna: Hi.

Eric: Carter.

Carter: Hi, donna. Eric, I have the paperwork from the paris deal. It needs your approval asap. You really turned this place into a makeshift studio, huh?

Eric: I wanted some place private to design.

Carter: You’re starting a new collection? Your grand finale?

Hope: I, um… I locked that door, right?

Thomas: Yeah. Yeah, that was right before you took your clothes off in front of me. Yeah, I don’t think this office is ever gonna feel the same again. Is this really happening? I’m just– for a long time, I waited for this.

Hope: Worth the wait?

Thomas: You’re so beautiful. I never knew it could be like this.

Hope: I just… I want to make sure that you understand where my head is at right now.

Thomas: I’m good.

Hope: It’s not love for me yet. I mean, I– I’m not ready and I just, I want to make sure that you understand that.

Thomas: I know.

Hope: It may never be.

Thomas: And I know that too.

Hope: So, are you really okay with this then?

Thomas: As long as you’re in my arms, I’m fine.

Donna: So, I guess brooke told you.

Carter: I ran into her and rj at the office.

Donna: Well, you know, I could see her being surprised but there’s really no reason for her to be upset.

Carter: That’s not the impression I was getting. I am curious though. Why do you feel the need to go off on your own? If this is your final collection, why design it all by yourself?

Eric: I’m not all by myself. I’m doing this with my talented and loyal grandson.

Rj: Dad, I know you’ve been wanting me to design since, like, forever, but you’re– you’re not upset that I’m working with granddad, right?

Brooke: I was saying to rj how I don’t want there to be issues because he’s working with your father and not with you, but there’s not gonna be any problems. I mean, you do agree with that, don’t you? Do you struggle with occasional nerve aches

Brooke: Well, I’m gonna go so you can have a chat.

Ridge: You don’t have to leave.

Brooke: I think I should. You need to talk to your son alone, designer to designer. Bye, honey.

Rj: Love you, mom.

Brooke: Love you. Just remember, you both love each other.

Ridge: Bye.

Brooke: Bye.

Rj: Well, dad, honestly, um, designer to designer, I’m not sure I’m ready to carry the title of that yet.

Ridge: Working with your granddad, that won’t take too long.

Rj: I’m learning so much from him. He’s really letting me express my own ideas too.

Ridge: You couldn’t find a better mentor.

Rj: Wait, so you agree? You think that it’s a good thing that I’m working with granddad? Right? Because I mean, honestly, I feel lucky that he’s even taking me underneath his wing. It’s great.

Ridge: I agree, and it’s great and yes, you’re lucky.

Ridge: So, you’re happy for me.

Ridge: I’m happy for you and I’m happy for me. Following in my footsteps.

Ridge: Just like you followed in granddad’S.

Ridge: Speaking of granddad, I’m worried about him.

Carter: Eric. I understand why this collection is so important to you.

Eric: You do?

Carter: I do. But my job is to make sure things run smoothly within our company. Our image as a cohesive family-run organization is as important as the product we put out. Now, control of forrester creations and the design talent in your family being passed down from one generation to another, eric, that’s our huge selling point. That makes us unique.

Eric: And so the older generation is expected to stand aside for the younger generation and let them take over? I mean, is that what you think? I think that’s probably what ridge thinks as well.

Carter: That– that’s not what I think and I’m sure ridge is just concerned.

Eric: Concerned about what? About me? About my, uh, about my abilities?

Carter: No, no. No one’s doubting your expertise. That would be foolish. Your career and your accomplishments, they speak for themselves. Starting a new couture line that can be viewed as competing with the one ridge is producing, eric, that is risky.

Eric: Do you think I’m afraid of a little risk? Carter, that was the whole beginning of my business, was taking a risk. You didn’t think I had the confidence to take that– that leap of faith? We all choose our own paths and I trust mine and you can trust it too.

Carter: And there’s no way you can work on this project with ridge?

Eric: Not with ridge. I’m doing this alone. Ridge and I are going head to head in a competition on the runway.

Thomas: You know, this newfound change in you is, uh, unexpected.

Hope: Hm. Well, I guess I’m just full of surprises then, aren’t I? You know, I just feel like something has lit up inside of me and, you know, it just feels very freeing.

Thomas: Hm. Yeah, I like to be the kind of person that can help you explore this newfound freedom.

Brooke: Sweetie, I have the sample– oh– oh, my god. Hope! Family is just very important.

Carter: You and ridge are competing against each other?

Eric: Yes. Not for the first time, but I think probably for the last.

Donna: Wait– wait a minute. When did this happen? Is this– is this what you and ridge were talking about earlier when he came over?

Eric: Yes. Yes. I was about to tell you, and that’s when– that’s when carter came in. Ridge and I are competing. Head to head. It’s a competition on the runway. Winner take all. And the buyers decide who that is.

Donna: Eric, I– I– I completely understand why you’d want to do this. I do, but… do you really want to put this much pressure on yourself?

Carter: Putting pressure on the company? Are you sure you want to go down that road?

Eric: I’ve never been more sure of anything. My collection will prevail.

Ridge: My dad. He’s worked for years and years to build this company. Built all this. You know why?

Rj: Why?

Ridge: So, we can stand on his shoulders.

Rj: But?

Ridge: No but. And. And now it’s time for him to take a break, to take it easy, not to burn the midnight oil trying to come up with another line, another collection. What does he have to prove?

Rj: Nothing, he just– I feel like he has something to offer, okay? He has a vision. It’s a– it’s a great vision, dad. Why do you want him to retire so bad?

Ridge: It’s not about him retiring. I want him to be happy. He’s made a mark in this business, a bigger mark than any of us could ever hope to make. Should be enough.

Rj: It’s not enough. Look, I– I know that you care about granddad. I can see that and that you love him and that you just want what’s best for him. But I’ve– I’ve been spending a lot of time with him recently and I think there’s a lot more going on there.

Ridge: What does that mean?

Rj: Grandad’s not ready to retire, okay? He’s not even close.

Ridge: I know. I can see that he wants to keep working, but he doesn’t want to work with me. He wants to work with you.

Hope: Gosh, mom. It’s like you know when I’m with thomas. We really have to work on your timing.

Brooke: I was looking for you because we have work to do and I didn’t expect to find you here kissing thomas and whatever else it was that you were doing.

Hope: Oh, come on, mom. Like you and ridge haven’t?

Brooke: This isn’t about me and ridge. I am concerned because of things that have happened in the past and I have every right to be concerned. So, why don’t you tell me? Where do things really stand for you and thomas? To 50 years with my best friend.

Hope: Mom, I love you and I know that you’re concerned, but we know what we’re doing.

Brooke: Do you?

Hope: Yes.

Brooke: Okay. So, all of a sudden, you’re in love with thomas.

Hope: No, actually, but thomas, he knows where I stand. I haven’t made any commitments or promises. We’re on the same page.

Brooke: And how do you feel about this? Oh, I’m sure you’re fine with it, right? I mean, you’ve been after my daughter for years.

Hope: Oh, my gosh, mom, I’ve made this decision. Me, I want this and I’ve made the rules and boundaries very clear.

Brooke: What about liam? What about your family? I know you still love him and I know you miss him and your life together.

Eric: Donna, was, uh, was carter any more at ease with all this after you walked him out?

Donna: I’m not really so sure. I mean, he kind of plays things close to the vest.

Eric: Yeah, he does.

Donna: But I will have katie investigate.

Eric: Good. Good.

Donna: But I do know he wants what’s best for the company and for you.

Eric: Well, any misgivings he has will disappear once he sees the collection.

Donna: I have no doubt.

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: Back to ridge. Does he, um… I’m assuming you didn’t tell him about your hands? The tremors?

Eric: No, donna, absolutely not. There’s no reason for him to know about it and I don’t want him to. The only people that know about this are– are you and me and– and rj and my doctor. That’s all.

Donna: You know how much I love you, right?

Eric: Yeah, I do. You do a really good job letting me know that. Thank you.

Donna: I’m just so proud of you and I believe in you and what you’re doing here and your– your vision and…

Eric: I’m so excited about all this and I know, in talking about it, I– I give rj all this credit and– and it’s all about the ideas coming out of my head and everything. But you, you’re an absolute inspiration to me. You mean so much to me. Never doubt that.

Donna: I’m happy when you’re happy. You know, your enthusiasm is contagious.

Eric: Look at you.

Donna: It’s literally impossible to be around you and not– not get excited for whatever happens next. And I’m just so happy to be here to share it with you.

Eric: You know, I wasn’t lying when I said that you’re my muse. My muse. I mean, look at you. So beautiful. You’re so smart. You’re so smart. You’re funny. And you’re sexy too. With your inspiration, I can– I can do anything. Whatever ridge does, let him bring it on, can’t scare me. We’ll win this thing and then we’ll have time for a martini after, I promise. Okay?

Donna: I love you. I love you so much.

Eric: That’s so good. Okay. Okay.

Rj: I know. I know you have some reservations about granddad designing, but how do you– how do you feel about me working with him? Are you– are you okay with it? It’s a great opportunity, right?

Ridge: I’m more than okay with it. I love it. And I don’t know if I’ve ever said this to you, but I– I think you have more natural talent than any of us.

Rj: No pressure.

Ridge: No pressure. You know, being a dad, isn’t– it’s not easy. I’M… you always– you want what’s best for your kids. You want them to have a long and happy life and you want them to choose their path, and I… I didn’t wanna push anyone and brooke may disagree. She thinks I pushed you too much to go a certain direction, but it’s because I saw what you could do as a kid when you were– you know, you were drawing stuff and there was– there was emotion and movement. You can’t teach that. And yes, I wanted you to be a designer, I did, but you found your way here. You did this, into this building that bears your name. And you know, one day when I figure out things with granddad, and I will, we– it’s gonna be okay. And then you and I, we’re gonna do something. We’re gonna do something magical together.

Rj: I’d be honored, dad.

Ridge: I’d be honored. There’s something you always gotta remember. Remember how proud I am of you and– and how much I appreciate your talent and how much I love you.

Rj: Thanks, dad.

Ridge: Come here.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Victor: Come on in.

Nate: Anything I can do to help calm your nerves about this dinner with your mother?

Victoria: I’m not nervous. I’m just a little anxious.

Nate: My mistake.

Victoria: Well, there is a difference. It shows, huh?

[ Nate chuckles ]

Nate: Well, for one thing, you’ve been preoccupied since we got here. For another thing, that was about the fifth time you checked the time in the last two minutes.

Victoria: I’m so sorry. It’s just that this conversation that I’m gonna have with my mom about my dad’s recent decision making, it’s– it’s just not gonna be easy.

Nate: Okay. Fair enough. But why, exactly?

Victoria: Well, because I’m concerned about him and I think that she should be concerned too.

Nate: Are you sure that’s all it is?

Victoria: Well, what else would it be?

Nate: Are you genuinely concerned about your father or are you angry that he’s coming back to newman and taking over your position as ceo? And you’re looking for a way to get back at him?

Victor: I mean, don’t get me wrong, a desire to change and go on a new path, you know, I find that admirable.

Adam: But?

Victor: I know you. You try, and, for a while, it works, and then, your darker side emerges and whatever you’ve accomplished, you undo it.

Adam: Every other time, absolutely. But dad, not this time.

Victor: What’s different?

Adam: I have nothing left to lose. You always told me that I needed humility. Well, here I am, dad. I’m– I’m humbling myself before you right now. Just let me start at the bottom. I’ll do– I’ll do whatever it takes, and– and maybe somewhere along the way, I’ll turn into an actual human being and hopefully, I can start erasing some of the damage that I’ve caused.

Victor: Let me think about it, okay?

Adam: That’s all I can ask.

Victor: Okay. Son… if your intentions are sincere… I’m very impressed.

[ Adam laughing ]

Sally: Care to share the joke? You can’t leave without cuddles.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by… my cholesterol is borderline.

Adam: Um, there’s no joke. I was just sitting here remembering a string of arguments that I’ve had with my father over the past few months.

Sally: Ah, well, you know, as I always say, for a good time, argue with victor newman. Look, adam, come on. We know each other way too well for this, okay? So, save the act for someone who might actually buy it. I know what your father just did to you and I know that it had to break your heart again. This has to be a rough time for you.

Adam: I mean, you– you would think so, right? But get this. I’m actually glad that this happened. I finally got the wake-up call that I’ve been needing for years.

Sally: No. No. You don’t have a fever and your complexion looks pretty good.

Adam: Okay, uh, don’t worry, I’m fine. But you, of all people, will be glad to hear that I’m ready to grow up and I’m ready to become an adult and I’m even looking forward to it.

Sally: Wow. Finally.

Adam: [ Scoffs ] Okay, I deserve that. Are you, uh, meeting someone?

Sally: No, I actually just came to get some room service before I go upstairs.

Adam: Why not join me for a drink? We can welcome in the new era of adam newman. And I promise I won’t read into anything if you say yes.

Sally: All right. Well, in that case, then, yes. And while we’re at it, you might as well welcome in a whole new era for both of us.

Victoria: Okay, you’re skeptical, I get it, but no, I am more concerned about my father than I am angry. At the end of the day, it’s my dad that we’re talking about and I love him.

Nate: I know you do and he loves you. So, no matter what, please keep that in mind.

Victoria: Of course. That’s a given. The more that I think about it, the less surprised I am that he’s demoting me and stepping back in as ceo of his own company. But what is surprising, and also very troubling, is that he keeps changing the direction that he’s taking newman enterprises. I mean, it’s– it’s just not like my father. It’s erratic.

Nate: Well, I can honestly say that his behavior or decisions have seemed erratic to me, but obviously, you know him a lot better than I do. For the record–

Victoria: No, no, no, not– not for the record, just say it.

Nate: If you were even considering some kind of retaliation instead of simply accepting your father’s decision and making the most of it, I would try my best to talk you out of it, for your sake, not his.

Nikki: Oh, are you joining us for dinner?

Nate: No, no. I was just keeping victoria company until you got here. I have to, uh, head back to the office for an overseas conference call. Well, enjoy your dinner, ladies.

Victoria: Thank you.

Nikki: How are you doing, darling?

Victoria: How do you think?

Nikki: Well, I think you’re probably mad at your father for what he’s putting you through.

Victoria: Mom, I am much more than mad. I’m worried as hell.

Sometimes, the lows

of bipolar depression

Victor: Nate.

Nate: If I’m, uh, interrupting something–

Victor: No, no. Come here. You’ve seen victoria?

Nate: Briefly. Um, I ran into her at society. She was meeting nikki for dinner.

Victor: Mm-hmm. I’m sure she was shocked to learn that I am retaking the reins of my company. As I’m sure you were surprised.

Nate: Yeah, I have to admit, I did not see it coming and neither did she.

Victor: Well, I want you to know, as I hopefully made it clear to her, I did not make the decision to take over the company again because of anything she did or didn’t do as a ceo. She does a great job. You know? I just felt like taking it over again.

Nate: Your company. The one you built from the ground up and you have every right to run it how you see fit.

Nikki: I can understand you being upset over the changes your father has made.

[ Victoria chuckles ]

Victoria: I love how everyone keeps talking about the changes as if dad had just come in and rearranged the furniture or something like that. He demoted me. He shoved me out of a position that I more than earned. So, yes, I’m sorry, I am having a hard time taking it.

Nikki: And I get that. But what is it that you’re worried about?

Victoria: I’m worried about him, mom, and frankly, I’m surprised that you’re not.

Nikki: Well, he’s concerned about his company. I would be more worried if he wasn’t trying to do something about it.

Victoria: Oh, really? Even though what he is trying to do about it involves one contradictory and impulsive decision after the other? He keeps changing his mind about everything. He’s making all of these rash, and to me, wrong-headed decisions. I’m beginning to believe that maybe, he is– he’s acting irrationally.

Nikki: All right, I think you’re being very unfair right now and rather extreme.

Victoria: Am I? Really, mom? Am I? Because I’m– I’m sorry. I’m sorry if this isn’t right for me to say, but I’m beginning to wonder if maybe dad is not capable of running his own empire anymore.

Adam: So, nick is still out of town?

Sally: Yeah, he still has a few more cities to hit. You know, the kirsten divisions need some help dealing with the recent changes. The latest being that kirsten is no longer affiliated with newman, which is huge.

Adam: You know, I wish for once that my father would realize or even care that real people are affected by his little corporate whims, but nope, it’s all just one big high-stakes chess game to him.

Sally: [ Clicks tongue ] Ooh.

Adam: What?

Sally: Just sounded a little bitter, maybe, even cynical. That’s something maybe the old adam would say, not the new adam. You know, the one we’re supposed to be celebrating?

Adam: Okay, well, you know, it is a process, but thank you for calling me out. What now?

Sally: This isn’t your first drink, is it? Had you already started celebrating this new era of adam before I showed up?

Adam: I mean, sparingly, maybe. Why?

Sally: Well, just because I know how morose you can get whenever you’ve been drinking.

[ Adam sighs ] Have you eaten anything?

Adam: I have been– I’m very busy today. It’s a very busy day.

Sally: Yeah, well, I have been busy too. So busy that I actually forgot to eat all day, and now, my stomach is yelling at me.

Adam: Are you– are you suggesting that we have dinner together?

Sally: Apparently, I am. (Vo) you were diagnosed with thyroid eye disease

Adam: Oh, and, uh, can we get a bottle of champagne?

Sally: More alcohol?

Adam: Hey, just–

Sally: Seriously?

Adam: Just one glass of champagne a piece. To toast our mutual new beginnings.

Sally: So, you really mean this. You think that– that you can play out this whole new direction of yours and not get frustrated or give up?

Adam: You have no idea how determined I am.

Sally: I mean, don’t get me wrong. I– I love this whole “starting at the bottom” move for you. I think it’s great. But, I just don’t wanna see you set yourself up for another failure.

Adam: Hm, failing at the bottom. Well, thank you for the vote of confidence, I appreciate that.

Sally: It’s gonna be ego-crushing. Are you ready for that?

Adam: You know what? I’m gonna deal with it.

Sally: Okay then, because i am pulling for you.

Adam: Well, same to you. I’m excited for you. Starting your own interior design venture. You’re gonna be brilliant at it.

Sally: Thank you. God knows I’m willing to work as hard as I have to, to prove myself.

Adam: Hm, we both are, which means, I do not believe that either one of us will fail. I have everything plotted out, I will have you know.

Sally: I wish you had found a different way to word that.

Adam: What do you mean, what– what would I– should I say?

Sally: I don’t know, just if you had said “planned out” or “worked out” or “thought out,” I just– you and the word “plotted” makes me feel like maybe, you have something else in mind other than taking the legitimate route from the bottom to the top of the corporate ladder.

Adam: Look, sally. I have been wide open with you about this, and yet, you still doubt me.

Sally: Yeah, maybe it’s because I’ve known you so well for so long. Or maybe, it’s because you keep making these little slip-ups, like little bit of cynicism here or an old adam word there.

Adam: Have I ever complimented you on your flair for the dramatic?

Sally: Adam.

Adam: Yes?

Sally: If I need to worry about you… tell me now.

Victoria: Are you really telling me that you haven’t thought of these things yourself in the past few months, mom?

Nikki: What things are you talking about?

[ Victoria scoffs ]

Victoria: Well, let’s see. He set up nick and sharon and adam with their own business and then, he changed the rules on them before they even had a chance to get it off the ground. He let adam’s blackmail scheme go unpunished, and then, later, he fired him, and then, he went forward with the merger plan that he told adam was a no go two weeks earlier. He offered sally this great job at a new division at newman enterprises, and then, he ripped the rug out from underneath her five minutes later.

Nikki: Okay, you know what I think? I think that you are taking some of your father’s decisions out of context. It is his company. He’s allowed to change his mind and do whatever he wants to with it.

Victoria: Of course, but he’s doing it so erratically. Can you not see that? There’s no rhyme, no reason to some of the choices that he’s made. No sound business sense whatsoever. It’s like these decisions are more about him flexing his corporate muscle just to show that he can and putting people in their place, sometimes just to be vindictive.

Nikki: What exactly are you getting at? And how far are you planning on taking things?

Victor: As you know, nate, my daughter thinks very highly of your opinion. That’s why maybe, you can help her smooth the waters between her and me. Because I still need her. I need her expertise, her acumen, her knowledge about what has gone on here in the last few months. That goes for you as well.

Nate: I appreciate hearing that, victor.

Victor: Have you spoken with her since I have?

Nate: Look, um… as you know, this is a huge change for her and I think she just needs some time to process it. When she’s fully settled into her position, I believe she’ll realize that this decision you made is a positive one for both of you. And it isn’t your way of punishing her for something.

Victor: I appreciate that. Maybe, you can help her make that transition.

Nate: I will do anything and everything I can to help make this transition go as smoothly as possible.

Victor: Good man.

Nate: Well, I’m sure you have a lot of work to do while you get settled in, so, uh, if we’re finished here…

Victor: No, no, just pour yourself a drink, will you? Do you struggle with occasional nerve aches

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Victor: Have a seat, nate.

[ Nate clears throat ]

Nate: I wish I could guarantee that I could persuade victoria, one way or another, if she’s already made up her mind. I know I don’t have to tell you how decisive she can be.

[ Victor chuckles ]

Victor: She was stubborn the day she was born.

[ Nate laughs ]

Nate: Why am I not surprised?

Victor: You should have seen her when she started in this company.

Nate: Where did she start?

Victor: The mailroom.

Nate: Really? The mailroom.

Victor: Yeah. I didn’t want anybody to get the impression that I gave her preferential treatment because she was my daughter. You know, she knows this company inside out and she never, never accepted a promotion until she thought that she deserved it.

Nate: Yep. That sounds like her. She is definitely her father’s daughter. And she really hit her stride sitting at the top spot here.

Victor: Mm-hmm. Let me ask you something. Um, can you give me an honest answer? Do you think she still deserves to be in this position?

Nate: Listen, victor. Um, it’s not my place to be in the middle of this. Like I said, it’s your prerogative to make that choice. I’m just interested in encouraging her to get past her anger.

[ Victor sighs ]

Victor: You think she’s so angry that she may plan retaliation?

Victoria: I’m not suggesting anything. I’m just venting. I know. If you’re wondering, I don’t have some master plan up my sleeve to hold on to my ceo position.

Nikki: All right. Good.

Victoria: Oh, no, I’m finished. Thank you.

Nikki: Honey, I wish you would eat something.

Victoria: No, mom, I can’T. I’m not hungry. I’m too upset about dad.

[ Victoria sighs ] And frankly, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I blame adam for most of this.

Nikki: [ Scoffs ] You’ll get no argument from me on that.

Victoria: His arrogance, his petulance, his relentless sense of self-entitlement. It’s one self-serving betrayal after another. And maybe all of that is just built up in dad and pushed him too far and his business sense has gone straight out the window.

Nikki: Like I said, I think you are taking some of your father’s recent decisions out of context.

Victoria: Oh, okay, mom. Well, let’s just say you’re right. You live with him, mom. You love him. You know him better than any person on this planet. And you have had a front row seat to everything that he has been through and the toll that it’s taken on him. And now, on– on top of that, he wants the added stress of going back to run newman again? You must be worried about how that might affect his health.

Nikki: Yes, of course, I am. But–

Victoria: Newman enterprises, newman media, adam’s mind games, nicholas leaving the company, all the power plays, who’s in charge, who’s not? It’s all so damned important right now. But I’m telling you, if any of those things cost me my father, they’re worthless. And if you and me just stand by and let it happen, we will never forgive ourselves.

Nikki: No, no, darling. I promise you, there is not a chance in hell I would allow that to happen.

Adam: Why does everybody always suspect that I have a hidden agenda? Okay. Never mind. Um, forget I asked that, but you’re just going to have to trust that I’m serious, that I’m sincere. I’m excited about the future for the first time in, geez, longer than I can remember and I refuse to even let the possibility of failure even– even enter my mind.

Sally: Okay then. I am excited for you. Everyone deserves a new beginning.

[ Adam groans ]

Adam: Now, here is something else that you probably never thought I would say: Enough about me. I want to hear about you for a change. Tell me everything about the interior design business.

Sally: Okay. Consider this a warning. You may be sorry you asked because I am on a complete, exciting, exhilarating design high. Like, it is a whole new thrilling world for me. I’m serious. I– I never expected it, but I actually found something that I love as much as fashion.

Adam: Wow. I didn’t think that that was possible.

Sally: Yeah, neither did I. It’s becoming kind of an addiction. Like, I actually go through sketch pad withdrawal when I’m away from it for too long. These ideas, they just keep pouring out of me.

Adam: No, I know, I’ve seen them. I mean, you’re okay. I mean, you’re good. Okay, you’re really good.

Sally: Yeah, I know, it’s true.

[ Both chuckling ]

Adam: And I can’t tell you how good it is to see you happy and energized again and to hear that laugh.

Sally: Definitely come a long way from losing ava.

Adam: Hm.

Sally: These new paths that we found, they almost… seemed like a miracle, don’t they?

Adam: I don’t, uh, mind admitting, but I almost feel reborn in a way and it’s exciting.

Sally: Reborn. That is a perfect way to describe it.

[ Adam inhales deeply ] (Michael) copd is harder on the folks around you, I think.

[ Both sighing ]

Sally: No.

[ Both chuckling ]

Adam: Whoops.

Sally: So much for “one more glass.”

Adam: Ugh. We should probably be ashamed of ourselves.

Sally: Uh, we probably will be in the morning. Speaking of which, it is way past my bedtime and I actually have a really busy day tomorrow.

Adam: Yeah, I, uh, need to get going, too. But first, may I, uh, do something that I haven’t done since we were together?

Sally: Probably not.

[ Sally chuckles ]

Adam: May I walk you to your door?

Sally: Okay. Sure. If you insist.

[ Both sighing ]

Adam: Thank you, sally.

Sally: For what?

Adam: For inviting me to dinner. You know, it means a lot that we can talk like this again and relax and hang out together. I missed my friend.

Sally: I missed my friend, too.

Adam: After you.

Nikki: Sweetheart, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I’ll tell you what, I’ll make a deal with you.

Victoria: Another deal? What is it with this family?

Nikki: You let me worry about your father’s health. I’m going to talk to him about it and he’s going to hate it, but since when has that ever stopped me?

Victoria: Not once that I can think of.

Nikki: And he is going to be relying on you as his co-ceo so he can focus on reunifying the company. I mean, that was really the reason he chose to go back in the first place.

Victoria: Are you sure that’s the only reason?

Nikki: Well, that’s what he has told me and I believe him. And I also believe that he misses getting up in the morning and going to the office, sitting behind that desk, being productive.

Victoria: But what if he can’t handle it, mom?

Nikki: We’re just going to have to wait and see. If I see a hint of anything affecting his health, I will come down on him like the wrath of god. Don’t worry, we’re not going to lose your father. I got this.

Nate: Victoria and i didn’t really have time to get into much. Naturally, she was surprised and upset about being demoted, but that was pretty much as far as we went and she certainly didn’t mention any retaliatory thoughts she might be having.

Victor: Mm-hmm. Would you have told me if she had?

[ Nate sighs ]

Nate: Victor, um, you’re putting me in a tough spot here. You’re my boss. So is victoria. And as you know, I’m personally involved with her, so I’m not comfortable being put in the middle of this.

Victor: I understand. Nate, as long as you are willing to smooth over the waters between me and my daughter… you and I are good.

Nate: You definitely have my word on that. We’re on the same team when it comes to making sure both victoria and newman enterprises come out on the other side of these changes stronger and more unified than ever.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

Victor: Well, my baby.

Nikki: Hi.

Victor: Hi, my baby.

[ Both moaning ] I’ve missed you. Why do I get the feeling that you have to talk to me?

[ Nikki groans ]

Nikki: You know me too well.

Victor: Yeah. Is that a complaint or a compliment?

Nikki: I think I’ll let you keep wondering.

[ Victor groans ]

Victor: So nate tells me that you had dinner with victoria. How’s she doing?

Nikki: Yeah, she’s, um– she’s upset. She was demoted and she feels insulted.

Victor: I assume you assured her there was nothing for her to be insulted about.

Nikki: Of course, I did. But, uh, you know victoria, she– she needs time and space to process and get ready for her new position.

Victor: Yeah, well, there’s nothing that bothers me more than a rift between me and my daughter.

Nikki: Well, I have an idea that might prevent that.

Victor: Let me hear it.

Nikki: I think that you should delay going back to the office for a couple of weeks, maybe a month.

Victor: Why would I do that?

Nikki: Well, for one thing, it would give victoria the time and space that she needs.

Victor: And for another?

Nikki: You and I are about to have big changes in our lives. You’re going back to take charge at newman enterprises. I’m taking over at newman media. I mean, those are both possibly very stress inducing commitments.

Victor: Sweetheart, not to mention exciting and– and stimulating.

Nikki: And that is my point. I think that we should take a long relaxing trip. Just the two of us. We can charge up our batteries and just spend a little time together before our schedules start to pull us apart.

Victor: Hm.

Nikki: I mean, we really need it. We need it for our mental health, our physical health, for victoria’s peace of mind, and for the company that you have been worrying so much about. I really do think it’s the best thing, darling. I promise you it will be. So please say yes.

Victor: You will still have power. You make the day to day decisions, but I will retake the reigns of this company that I built, because I’ve noticed lately that things around here seem disjointed. So, I will take over. Is that clear?

Victoria: Well, let me tell you, this hardly feels like unity. You’re either pushing or driving everyone away.

Victor: I don’t give a damn what you think!

Victoria: Including me!

Victor: I will take over again!

Victoria: I don’t deserve this, daddy. Well, victor newman’s not one to waste time. I’ll give him that.

Nate: Yeah, I know. I was here talking to him earlier.

Victoria: Yeah, I do– I– I see that. [ Laughs ]

Nate: His invitation.

Victoria: Then, of course, you accept it.

Nate: Victoria, I’m just trying to keep things as calm and peaceful as possible around here until the dust settles.

[ Victoria laughs ]

Victoria: Good luck with that.

[ Victoria sighs ]

Nate: Just so you know, victor seems to suspect that you’re looking for a way to stop him from coming back to newman.

Victoria: And let me guess, you confirm that yes, I certainly am.

Nate: Why would you think I’d do that to you?

Victoria: Because you don’t think that my idea is a good idea and you want to impress the big boss by warning him.

Nate: Actually, I protected you, but you’re right. I don’t agree with you at all. I think it’s exactly the wrong way for you to handle this.

[ Victoria laughs ]

Victoria: Well, I’m really sorry you feel that way, nate, because I was counting on you to come around.

[ Nate sighs ]

[ Both sighing ]

[ Sally chuckles ]

[ Both sighing ]

[ Adam sighs ]

Adam: I’m sorry. That was, um– [ Laughs ] That was a mistake.

Sally: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, it was.

Adam: Well, in my defense, um, it wasn’t me that kissed you. It was my, um, champagne brain. Would you, uh, mind if we just pretend like that never happened?

Sally: Pretend what never happened? I– I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Adam: Thank you. Good night.

Sally: You’re welcome. And yeah, good night.

Adam: Yeah.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Gladys. The minute that you get this message, I want an update. You call me. Do you understand? I mean, you’re her guardian. The police must be telling you if there’s any updates on Sasha. Call me.

That’s why I’m here. I need to know exactly what is going on with Sasha.

Hello, sweetheart. Well, aren’t you gonna be a gentleman and invite me to have a seat?

Don’t mind if I do.

Thank you.

I hope all these patients know how lucky they are to have your help.

I’m the lucky one. At my age to have the most fulfilling job of my life… it’s pretty special. You know, 6 out of these 11 patients have the same doctor. You always want the best doctor you can get. And sometimes, these complicated cases take the total focus of the doctors, and the patients can be a little intimidated by some of the doctors.

You mean like not ask all the questions that they need answers to?

And that’s where I come in. Hopefully, I give them the answers they need. You can see that Dr. Bronson has to deal with all kinds of neurological complications and incurable conditions.

Like ALS.

Everything all right, Esme?

Uh, yes, yes. Um, I was just arranging some things for Alexis.

[ Chuckling ] Oh, good luck with that. She has her own very random system of order. Do you need any of my help?

Uh, no, thank you, um… is there anything I can help you with, professor Chase?

Uh, Alexis left a message that she’d be here for a while. I was hoping to catch her. It’s — it’s late. Shouldn’t you be getting home?

Um, it’s actually why I was finding some more work to do. I don’t exactly want to go home yet.

Got your favorite. Brook Lynn. What is it?

I got fired.

What?! But Maxie was in such high spirits when she came by earlier today.

She’s too nice to involve you.

I am so sorry.

I’m not even upset about the job. I’m upset because I lost my best friend.

I hope Molly and Kristina can work through their problem.

Oh, so you figured it was the two of them, huh?

I just got the impression it wasn’t Sam.

[ Chuckles ] True. The two of them are driving me crazy, by the way, but I know I need to let them work it out on their own. You didn’t share. Are you okay?

I’m just trying to honor my father’s wishes.

I admire that.

Yeah, well, Dad wants to go on like everything is normal.

Well, at least he finally told Chase.

No, he didn’t.

Anna, listen to me. Whoever got in here —

What?! Is trying to get to me?! Well, it’s working.

You weren’t even gonna say hello, Marty?

Forgive me. I didn’t see you, Blair.

Oh, you saw me all right.

Trish. Excuse me. Could I please get —

Another, and I will have what I was having over there before, please. Okay. Thank you.

What are you doing here, Blair?

[ Scoffs ] Well, if I didn’t know better, I would think that you’re not happy to see me.

I’m not. Nor am I happy to find you meeting up with the likes of Tracy Quartermaine of all people.

Oh, and I thought you didn’t see me.

I might have caught a glimpse.

Mm. But you were distracted by your friend.

My friend?

Yeah, the gorgeous brunette. What, you didn’t want to introduce her to ex-wife number three? I would love to meet her. Where’d she disappear to?

Lucy, if you’re looking for Olivia, she’s not here right now.

No, no, no. I’m not. I was looking for you. I-I spoke with your assistant and she said you’d be here. I just — I just need to ask you something. Listen, martin is down in the lobby waiting. I don’t have a lot of time. I just — please tell me. Tell me about Sasha, please.

Well, as you clearly heard when you barged into the office, I left word for Gladys to give me an update when she hears anything.

Well, I don’t have time to wait. I need to know what’s happening with Sasha right now.

Okay, what happened with Maxie?

I was trying to convince myself that there was something I could do, you know, to make it right, but Maxie made it perfectly clear that there is nothing I can do to make up for what I did.

I take it they found out that Tracy got the information on the Deceptor from you.

Yeah. Deep down, I knew they would. Maxie could lose her livelihood. I mean, she just moved. She has three kids she has to support.

The case hasn’t been settled yet.

Yeah, but it doesn’t look good, and it’s all my fault. And now I am getting exactly what I deserve. Maxie hates me.

Gregory told me that he was going to Chase’s apartment the other day to tell him.

No, he must’ve — must’ve changed his mind. I — Chase called me this morning about getting a new baseball glove for violet. He doesn’t know. It’s not gonna be easy for either one of them when he finally does tell Chase.

It’s not easy for anyone. Certainly not easy for you.

All I’ve wanted to do since he told me was to help him. You know, I’ve been researching ALS day and night. What I’d really like to do is talk to Dr. Bronson about his case.

But you can’t do that, can you?

It’s my dad’s illness, right? So legally, ethically, I’d have to get his permission. And I think — I’m concerned just bringing it up to him right now would just upset him more.

[ Scoffs ] You and Dr. Bronson are both doctors. I’m sure that he would understand and share with you what he could.

Yeah, doctors don’t really like that, and — and I won’t go behind my father’s back.

You’re right. That was a terrible idea.

You know, there will come a point when he won’t… he won’t be able to walk anymore. My father won’t be able to speak. But it’s still up to him when and how much he wants me to be involved.

Why wouldn’t you want to go home to that adorable son of yours?

[ Chuckles ] No, it’s not — it’s not Ace that I’m avoiding. It’s Spencer. Um, but I don’t want to bother you with my problems.

You are not bothering me.

Um, it’s just that Spencer and i have been spending a lot of time together taking care of Ace, and I thought that everything was going really well. You know, Spencer adores his little brother, and, you know, Ace lights up every time that Spencer walks into the room. [ Chuckles ] And I don’t know. It felt like for the first time in my life, I knew what it was like to be part of a family.

Sounds like a good start to me.

Until I overheard Spencer talking to Alexis about going out of town for the weekend with his girlfriend, Trina. He asked Alexis to check up on me, and in spite of what I thought, it is very clear that Spencer does not trust me. So much for family.

Stella. We need to talk.

I’m a little busy here, Marshall.

It’s important.

Stella, you are due for a break.

Thanks, Elizabeth. I-I’ll finish this right after. Is everything all right with Curtis?

He’s good. At least for now.

What is that supposed to mean?

He’s thinking of selling The Savoy.

Bite your tongue. That’ll be the death of him.

They were sloppy this time.

This seems very deliberate to me. This seems very personal. I just bought this. I bought it because I don’t have any clothes because they burned in the fire, all right? I’ve only worn this one time. I don’t even like it. And the only reason that it’s ruined is —

Why, because it’s yours?

Yeah, because it’s mine. Your stuff isn’t here. I mean, it makes me feel that whoever’s doing this, they — they just — they want one thing, and that is to leave me with nothing.

And then what? It’s more than that. The message in the bathroom. “You think you’re safe, but you’re not.” That’s a direct threat.

woman who was just here — oh, fact is we just met. I’m not even sure I remember her name.

Lucy Coe.

Oh. Yes.

“Oh.” She owns Deception, a cosmetics company just like me.


Some people might even consider us rivals. But I hear on the street that her company’s not doing that well.

Yeah, let me guess — little bird named Tracy Quartermaine told you that.


All right. Enough is enough. What exactly are you doing here with her tonight, Blair?

Marty… you’re an intelligent man. I’m sure you can figure it out.

All we know for sure, Lucy, is that Cody bell apparently took Sasha out of Ferncliff.

What?! How did he manage that?

Well, he got checked in as a patient.

[ Scoffs ] Cody is not crazy.

No, he’s not crazy, but he convinced someone that he needs help, and he’s on the verge of being charged for kidnapping.

[ Scoffs ] There is no way that Cody kidnapped Sasha.

Maxie may be angry, but once she has time to think it through —

Think what through, Chase? I betrayed her and Lucy and Sasha.

You made a mistake. And I know for a fact that Maxie has made a number of mistakes in the past, and they know Tracy and what she is capable of. They’ll understand the pressure you were under.

That’s the part I feel the worst about — letting Tracy blackmail me because I was too afraid of you finding out the truth. I should have trusted you enough to tell you the truth myself.

Yeah, well, it’s too late for that.

You’re a good son, you know that? And I know it’s even harder for you to let your father handle his own medical decisions because you’re a doctor.

Between you and me, it is tearing me up inside, but at some point, I have to admit and accept my limitations.

Mm. Yeah, good luck with that. Whenever I try, it doesn’t always work out so well for me.

My dad’s lucky to have you in his life.

I feel lucky to have him in mine, and I’m just trying to keep things as normal as possible because he said he wanted to maintain a normal life for as long as he could.

It’s not easy to go along with it, is it?

I think that we all have our own u-unique ways of imagining how we’re gonna deal with the…

The transition? I hated that word when people used to substitute that for dying, and now…I think it’s really appropriate.

I don’t know if it’s gonna make things any better for you or not, but you are not alone. We are in this together.

It helps a lot.

Sometimes, even family can let you down, Esme, but they will almost always be there for you when you really need them. The bonds of family don’t easily break.

I realize that I was this horrible person before, but I am trying really hard to make a new beginning. I want to be the best receptionist, and, more importantly, I want to be the best mom that I can be for Ace, and I’m trying really hard to build a new relationship with Spencer based on respect because he is Ace’s big brother. But what’s the point? Because Spencer only sees me for who I was and not the person that I am now. Just like everybody else.

[ Sighs ] If it means anything, Alexis had her doubts, but she sees you for who you are now, and so do I. Is it okay if I give you a little advice?

Anything, please.

Sometimes when you only look at the big picture, it can be really frustrating and infuriating, so try to focus on the short term, like maybe the one thing that happened today that made you smile.

Does that work for you?

Curtis can’t sell The Savoy. He’s so proud of that club. It keeps him motivated and inspires him.

You’re right about that.

And that’s more important than ever for him to keep fighting to recover. He’s got friends and coworkers there. Didn’t he go back to work?

He did. And you can see while he’s at the club, the way he interacts with all the people, it’s like he has his finger on the pulse of Port Charles.

That’s exactly what he needs to keep fighting to recover. Why on earth would he want to sell?

He may have gotten an offer he can’t refuse.

Don’t you think that someone who’s burned down my house and broken in here has had ample opportunity to kill me already?

I’m not saying someone isn’t enjoying torturing you a little bit, but you know that message in the bathroom is a threat.

Yes, I know that. But this — this doesn’t look like someone who works for Pikeman or the WSB would resort to this, right?

Okay. So it’s not professional-looking, but burning your house down, taking a shot at you at The Metro Court pool, now this — this is not a coincidence.

Okay. And I’m not taking any chances.

Rights and copyright on your attempts to develop a beauty wand, didn’t you?

Nope. I gave Tracy absolutely nothing. But, however, she did pay a very handsome sum for those rights. You’re a lawyer, Marty. You know by only owning those rights, Tracy could file a suit against Lucy and Deception.

The fact that you would do something like that with someone like that to hurt someone like Lucy Coe — shame on you, Blair. That is just vile.

No. What is vile is you whispering my original idea into your girlfriend’s ear and making her think that it was her idea just to get her in your bed.

That is not how it happened.

[ Scoffs ] Right.

Anyway, Lucy’s product actually works. Yours never did.

She never would have got it off the ground if it hadn’t been an idea that you stole from me. Well, you know what, buddy? It is gonna cost you big time.

Sasha didn’t want to admit it, but, um, I think that Cody does care for her much more than just as a friend. He did come to her rescue, you know, when she had that “problem” at the home & heart show.

Oh, yeah. That was a terrible trick that somebody played on her.

Yeah, it was. It was so cruel. But, you know, she did handle it. Sasha was okay. She did. And Cody was there for her then, too, and I’m just wondering if maybe he feels like he’s rescuing her, you know, by breaking her out of Ferncliff. He’s coming to her aid.

You know, I really am worried about her, but Deception is also in a very precarious position right now, and if Sasha can’t come back, you know, I need to know. If she’s not gonna be able to come back, then I have simply got to replace her as soon as possible.


Well what?

Well, you were on your way to say hello, and then you took this sudden detour.

I actually wasn’t gonna say hello. I was, um — I was gonna tell you something, and now I’m not sure it’s such a good idea.

Well, now you have to tell me.

[ Chuckles ] Okay, but first, I-I recognize this isn’t my place. TJ told me about an incident he had with Dr. Bronson, and then Stella was just telling me about some of her patients, and it only confirmed what I’d been feeling since I took over as head nurse.

What’s going on?

I don’t think Dr. Bronson is the right doctor for your dad.

Too late for what? For us?

No. No, too late for you to regret not telling me. [ Sighs ] Because you did. You shared everything with me.

And you were so understanding.

Brook Lynn, you did what you did because you were desperate for me to get my job back, and I love you for that. I love you for so many reasons. But I don’t want to spend time, the two of us, just rehashing the past.

No. Look, I know that everything is gonna turn out all right as long as I have you by my side. I just — I hate what I did to my friends.

You know what I don’t understand, is how could your grandmother put you in that position? She knew how close you were to Maxie, and yet she still made you feel like you had to betray your best friend. Who would do that to their granddaughter?

Gregory: Actually, it has been working for me. I find if I focus on a good thing during the day that happened, you know, big or small, it makes a difference in my outlook.

What about today?

Oh, today was really special. Today, I tried lavender ice cream for the first time.  [ Chuckles ] Amazing. I can’t believe what I’ve been missing out on.

[ Chuckles ] What about you?

Oh, that’s easy. Today, after Ace burped, he gave me the biggest smile. I could — I could tell he thought it was funny, and it just made me think how lucky I am that I’m his mom.

That sounds even better than my lavender ice cream.

Little bit.

[ Both chuckle ]

Look, why don’t you get on home to Ace? I think I can handle rearranging your boss’s desk.

Thank you.

My pleasure.


Oh, you’re back.

Whoa. Gregory. Whoa.

[ Grunts ] You okay there?


You gonna be okay on your own?

Where are you going?

I’m gonna go check for some security footage and see if we can’t identify who did this.

Don’t you think a professional will know that there are security cameras on every floor? And will have disabled them, or at least hidden their identity as best they can?

Well, we’re gonna find out. Listen, in the meantime, you call the police and have them meet you here.

Yeah, maybe forensics will find something.

Yeah. We’re gonna find who did this. We’re gonna stop them.

[ Door closes ]

What do you mean it’s gonna cost me? Lucy’s the one being sued by Tracy Quartermaine.

Yeah, and I’m the one paying you $50,000 a month in alimony.

Well, if you didn’t want to pay, maybe you shouldn’t have spent so much time jumping in and out of the sack with David Vickers. Wasn’t exactly discreet. As I recall, you were caught in flagrante.

Mm-hmm, because you hired that stupid detective.

[ Chuckling ] Oh, he had nothing to do with the money. No, no, that was all that sweet southern judge decided $50,000 was adequate and reasonable compensation for my pain and suffering.

Oh, and you’re just suffering so much with Lucy Coe.

No, no, no, no, no. She’s definitely what I call a step up.

Well, Tracy says that you’re really hooked on her. So when Lucy loses Deception — and she will — you’ll have no choice but to make her wife number four. Marry her. And you know when that happens, I won’t have to pay you another single dime.

What is this “Godfather” talk?

A prominent business woman named Selina Wu offered Curtis a lot of money.

And he wants to sell?

Not sure. But she’s trying to convince him that in his current condition, it’d be too difficult for him to run the club.

Too difficult because he’s in a wheelchair? These people make me crazy when they automatically assume that anyone with a disability is incapable of holding down a job like running a club or a thousand other jobs. If they saw a fraction of the grit and bravery I see people display every day, they would be ashamed of themselves.

As well they should. Stella, I — I know what you do here is very important to the doctors and to the patients. I’m hoping that maybe you can find a way to lift Curtis up the way you do your patients.

I’m gonna do my best. Curtis needs that club. It’s his lifeline to get out of the house. Make him feel like he’s doing something worthy.

My son can’t lose that club.

Professor Chase, are you all right? I’m — I’m fine. I’m sorry. It’s my fault. It’s that corner rug keeps coming up.

We’ve got to get maintenance to take a look at that and tape it down.

Yeah. So, um, thank you for staying late. I’m sure that your son needs his mom, and I’ll see you in the morning.

Yes, um, thank you again, Professor Chase.

So how much did you hear?

Enough to know that you lifted Esme’s spirits when she needed it.

Are you accusing Dr. Bronson of something?

No, no, no, I’m not accusing him of anything. I think he’s a great neurologist.

Okay. Tell me what you really think.

I think diagnostically, there’s no one better than Dr. Bronson. But there are things that happen or they should happen after the diagnosis… in my opinion.

That’s what I want to hear — your opinion.

Okay, I can only compare him to you and some of the other specialists we have here.

[ Chuckles ] All the nurses make fun of my bedside manner.

And we still think you’re an amazing doctor because you’re responsive to your patients. You listen to them, you answer their questions, you treat them with respect. You don’t just diagnose and then follow standard procedure. Dr. Bronson does.

And you think that’s how he’s treating my father? He diagnosed the ALS.

His main focus is treating the ALS by the book rather than treating Gregory, the patient.

Let me get this straight. Uh, your concern for Sasha is what she is going through might cost you money?

No, no, of — of course not. I adore Sasha. Everybody does. But you’re a businesswoman. You know that we just can’t be responsible for our own personal feelings. I’m responsible for employees. They could lose their jobs, the whole company. Don’t you see that — Frankly, it’s just the timing of Sasha’s predicament is really bad because Tracy is coming after us, and we could lose absolutely everything.

[ Clears throat ] I think it’s time for you to leave.


You heard me.

Nina. I could use your help. No, wait. We are not finished with our conversation here.

Conversation is over. Goodbye, Lucy.


Okay. Listen, I can explain everything, but right now, I need you to show me whatever security footage you have of the hallway outside of Anna’s hotel suite.

Where are you going?

I could help Esme. She’s dealing with a lot.

She’s not the only one.

She’s young. Her life is just beginning.

And yours is not over.

[ Exhales deeply ] I thought you were gonna tell Chase that you have ALS.

I was, and I went to his apartment with every intention of doing just that, but… Brook Lynn had just moved in and the two of them seemed so very happy and I just couldn’t ruin it.

You don’t seem surprised.

I’m not. I’ve had the same reservations about Dr. Bronson, but I thought maybe because he was treating my father, I was too close to be objective.

Well, I’m being objective. And I’m not saying that Dr. Bronson isn’t a good doctor for certain people, but your dad…

Is dying, and he needs a more compassionate kind of care.


The problem is he chose Dr. Bronson, and I just can’t step in now and start dictating treatment. Finn.

You’re an excellent doctor with exceptional experience. This is your lane. And I think your dad would feel reassured and supported by your opinions. You wouldn’t be telling him what to do. You’re just offering an alternative.

You’ve been in Port Charles long enough now to have heard the infamous stories of the Quartermaine family’s, you know, bickering and backstabbing.

Yeah, but all those stories can’t be true.

I never wanted to believe they were, either. And I’ve done my fair share of conniving and deceiving my family, but I really thought we were in a good place, you know, that we could really count on each other. Now my dad thinks he’s someone else, and my grandmother, I mean, she’s always been calculating and tough. I-I actually admired her for it. But now I realize she is deliberately destructive. She’s taking down Deception because she can, and I helped her do it. You have no idea how lucky you are, Chase, to come from a family that’s open and honest with each other.

What the hell are you talking about?

Follow the breadcrumbs, Marty. I won’t hesitate to tell Lucy and prove to her that you stole the Deceptor idea from me and you gave it to her, and then she’ll lose everything. And then being angry and broke, she’ll have no choice but to sue you, and I will be her star witness. So I think you losing 50 grand a month is a small price to pay, don’t you? I mean, you won’t lose Lucy and you won’t lose the rest of your money. So think about it, okay? It’s so nice to see you.

Yeah, I can pull up the security footage from Olivia’s computer, but first, Valentin, you need to tell me what’s going on. Is Anna okay?

No, she’s not okay. Someone broke into our hotel suite while we were at dinner tonight. There was a threatening message written on the bathroom mirror. The room was ransacked and her clothes were strewn all over the place, covered in red ink.

Oh, my god. Okay, you said dinner, that would be the latest footage from tonight.

In the last two, three hours.

I am so sorry. I thought Anna would be okay here.

I was hoping so, too. Now I just want to know who did this.

Dante: Gun!

Everybody down!

[ Gunshot ]

[ Breathes deeply ] Wow, I do not know what that was for, but you almost made me forget all my problems. Mm.

[ Chuckles ] Phew.

[ Clears throat ] That’s what I’m here for, darlin’.

It felt really good just now with Esme to be able to lift someone’s spirits instead of depress them.

You do not depress anyone. On the contrary. You bring joy and happiness into many people’s lives, including your son’s and yours truly. And your work here, I mean, forget about it. It’s invaluable.

Well… take advantage of me for as long as you can.

I intend to. How are you feeling?

You saw. More unsteady more often. Dr. Bronson has made it clear I’m deteriorating more rapidly. But I have every intention of living the best life I can for as long as I can.


But, Alexis, there’s something… I need to know.

Of course.

Have you ever tried lavender ice cream? Oh, my god. Yum!

[ Chuckles ]

You’re right. I’m gonna talk to my dad about his treatment, and hopefully, he won’t be too resistant to sharing information.

And then you could just take it from there.

Yeah. In the meantime, I’m gonna research some neurologists in the surrounding areas and new york city. I-I have some colleagues. They should be able to give me some good names. That way when I talk to him, I’ll have some alternatives.

And if you need help with the research, I’m here.

I’m counting on it. Thank you. Thank you for giving me the push I needed.

My family wasn’t always open and honest. Growing up, Finn wasn’t around.

Yeah, but you guys worked that out.

Yeah. And I’m glad we did. Because of all that time we missed, I feel like what we have now is even more special. [ Chuckles ] I never would have thought that my father, my brother, and myself having a tea party with Violet, that that would be the highlight of my week.

I felt the same way about spending time with my dad and Leo.

And now I don’t just have my family together. I’ve got you, too. I’m the luckiest guy I know.

I’m pretty lucky, too.

So glad you’re back in town. Doing the work you love here at this hospital.

I didn’t mind being a jet-setter for a while, but I did miss my family and this job.

Are they working you to death?

Oh, it’s fine, but it will be nice to get a little lighter load. Felicia Scorpio is going to be joining our staff, and I got a feeling she’s got the fire to make a difference.

[ Chuckles ] It’s not surprising that you would be attracted to someone with the fire because you, Stella, are the original firecracker.

[ Chuckles ]

It’s good to have you back. And the family closer together.

You didn’t always feel that way.

Hey, that’s — it’s water under the bridge. I lost Irene, and somehow, it feels that she’s still a part of us, especially with Curtis and Trina and you. We’re lucky to have the family we have.

Yeah, we are.

[ Chuckles ] So we’ll, uh — we’ll keep this together. You’re going to talk to Curtis about the club, and I think between the two of us, we’ll be able to set him straight and keep him from making a mistake he’ll live to regret.


Nina: All right, I pulled up the footage. You said the last three hours?

Yeah, maximum.

Okay, I can just — I’ll fast-forward it.

Why are you involved with Sonny? And who is the third party?

The defense contractor.

What’s the name of the company?


Wait. Go back a little.

Uh, Valentin, I didn’t see anything.

Just go back.

He lied to you about working for Pikeman?

He didn’t lie to me.

Well, he was dishonest. He withheld the truth.

I-I just — why did he tell you? Wha– why then? Why would it come out of nowhere?

I was putting together the pieces, and he came — came home.

You told him what you knew, and he realized he had no choice but to come clean. So yeah, we don’t have to call that a lie if you don’t want to. But we both know he did lie to you about where he was the night of the fire.

Hello. I’d like to report a break-in.

Stop there. Go back a little. Freeze it. Oh, my god.

Valentin, it can’t be.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Gabi: Stefan? Stefan, wake up. Stefan! Despiertate!

Stefan: Ah! What?

Gabi: Oh! Good bank!

Stefan: Yeah, I’m awake. Is the mansion on fire?

Gabi: No, the mansion’s fine, but we need to decide if we’re going to burn down your nephew’s house of cards by telling his wife that just because he’s having an affair with her gay best friend.

Oh, good morning.

Morning. Hmm.

Kristen: Well, looks like someone worked up quite an appetite. Were you and your blushing bride practicing the Kama Sutra, or perhaps maybe that was you and your boy toy?

Dimitri: Kristen, for God’s sake, would you please leave?

Kristen: Oh, relax, nephew. We’re the only ones up this morning.

Dimitri: Yes, that might be the case. But, if I’ve learned anything in the short time that I’ve lived in this house, it is that there is no decibel low enough that what you say won’t be heard, deciphered, and then broadcast across the entire world.

Kristen: Ah, well, you and more worried about convincing that priggish little lawyer that you and Gwen are happily married.

Dimitri: Well, you needn’t concern yourself with that, Auntie Theorist.

Kristen: Well, now I needn’t. You need to turn in an Oscar worthy performance.

Dimitri: Hmm, well then you better hand me my trophy.

Kristen: So, how did you convince Mr. Roth that he didn’t need to see the little missus in person?

Dimitri: Who said he didn’t see her?

Kristen: You told Gwen. When? About the codicil?

Dimitri: Now don’t be absurd.

Kristen: Then how? How did you arrange for Mr. Roth to um, meet with your adoring wife without cluing her into the money that you’re collecting?

Dimitri: Well, Might Gwen stand in?

Leo: Oh, my dearest husband, how I do relish every moment in your arms. Hold me, please. Hold me? Would Gwen say hold me? Take me! Oh, Dimitri, my love, do take me, my… All right, I’m coming!

Gwen: Oh, it’s about bloody time.

Leo: Gwen

Gwen: what took you so long to answer the door?

Julie: Maggie. Darling, I am so sorry.

Maggie: You heard.

Julie: I didn’t hear. D-Doug was not feeling well yesterday. Th-That’s why we could not come to Victor’s service.

Maggie: Oh, right, of course. Chelsea told me. I-I completely understand. I-I hope Doug is on the mend.

Julie: Much better today. Thank you. But what about you, sweetheart? How did everything go?

Maggie: Well, the service was lovely. But, then we had an uninvited guest.

Julie: An uninvited guest? Who?

Vivian: That would be me.

Brady: That was a long ass flight.

Alex: But, did you see that hot little blonde flight attendant?

Brady: Yeah, I did.

God, when we hit that turbulence, and the captain turned on the fasten seatbelt sign, I’m telling you, man, she was giving me the look.

Brady: Alright, alright, Alex, listen, eye on the ball, okay? We didn’t fly to Greece to chase tail, okay?

Yeah, I know, I just hope we didn’t fly here for nothing.

I mean, it may be a small country, but still. Kind of a long shot, expecting that we find out what Uncle Vic was up to before his plane went down.

And why he destroyed his will, that’s the burning question.

Look, I know it’s a long shot, but it’s the only shot we got, right?

Yeah, true. Well, at least now we have that lead from Andrew.

I have to say, the first thing that we do is go see that guy Constance, the one Andrew said that Uncle Vic met with while he was here.

Absolutely. Actually, the first thing, I’m gonna get out of these clothes, and I’m jet lagged, so I’m gonna go to my room. I’m gonna take a shower, okay?

Yeah, I’m right behind you.  I’m gonna do the same thing. Then we head out, alright?

You got it.

Alex: Did you forget something, Cousin?

Theresa: Nope. Not your cousin. You and I have been over this, Alex, remember? We are most definitely not related.

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

Alex: What the f– What the hell are you doing in Greece, Theresa?

Theresa: Need I remind you that I offered to help you figure out what was going on with your Uncle Victor before he departed so tragically?

Alex: Need I remind you that I told you Brady would not like the idea of you tagging along, that he would hate the idea, in fact?
Technically, Alex, I’m not tagging along because I bought my own flight and Brady’s not the boss of me. Nor is he the boss of you, as far as I know. So why don’t you try growing a pear?

Alex: Oh, I have a pear. I have a substantial pear. In fact, Theresa, but that does not prevent me from telling you that you should not be here.

Theresa: Well, I am here, so… Why don’t you just tell Brady that you don’t give a damn whether he likes it or not, and that you’re oh so grateful that I came here to help you solve the mystery of whatever happened to your great Uncle Victor before… he departed to heaven, or… wherever.

Julie: Dear God, it’s Vivian Alamein. Wow. I thought you were rotting away in Statesville.

Vivian: No, I was released, obviously, on good behavior and my winning smile.

Julie: More proof the justice system in this country needs serious reform.

Vivian: Oh, pardon me. Are you perturbed because your grandson’s wife is still inside? It’s a shame that Lani decided to do her term on the East Coast because I would have loved to have had a game of go fish with her.

Julie: Maggie, will you please ask this woman to leave?

Vivian: And how are those great grandchildren of yours? Now that I’m out, maybe I should just pop over to Washington, D. C. and get reacquainted with Lonnie and Eli’s adorable twins.

Leo: Guinevere. I was just thinking about you.

Gwen: Were you?

Leo: Wondering how married life is treating my best friend in the entire world.

Gwen: Married life has been wonderful. Blissful. Couldn’t be better.

Leo: Oh, I’m so glad to hear that.

Gwen: Yes, you know, I was quite worried in the beginning when we had to cut the honeymoon in Iceland short because I thought it would, you know, put a damper on the romance.

Leo: It hasn’t?

Gwen: No, not in the slightest. In fact, quite the opposite.

Leo: How do you mean?

Gwen: Well, that hunky, gorgeous husband of mine, he just seems more in love than ever. He can’t keep his hands off me.

Leo: Hmm.

Stefan: So, we are 100 percent certain that Dimitri is sleeping with Leo, right?

Gabi: Oh honey, we are now. Rachel and I, we finished our game of 20 questions.

Stefan: When?

Gabi: When you were sleeping.

Stefan: And your niece admitted that she saw it with her own eyes.

Gabi: Maria and Dimitri in bed together.

Stefan: Whoa.

Gabi: Yeah.

Stefan: So Dimitri really did just marry Gwen so he could satisfy the terms of the Von Leuschner codicil?

Gabi: Yeah, that was the one and only reason. And poor Gwen is strolling around like the happy newlywed, imagining white picket fences and chaperoning school field trips. All while her husband is sleeping…-is-is-is being a completely slimy dirtbag.

Stefan: I was also banging her best friend on the DL.

Gabi: Yeah. Now, my husband, we have to figure out how we’re going to use this fascinating information to our advantage.

Kristen: Really? So, you… You thought that you could convince Mr. Roth that your same sex side piece in drag was your wife? It sounds like an SNL, a bad SNL scandal.

Dimitri: But, uh, wonder of wonders, it worked.

Kristen: Okay, how did it work? I thought you said that T. Mr. Roth saw right through Leo’s disguise.

Dimitri: He did. But when he realized that Leo and I have genuine feelings for each other, he became empathetic to our plight.

Kristen: Okay, wait a minute. You told me, you convinced me that you were just stringing Leo along to keep him from outing you to Gwen. So, Don’t tell me you’ve gone soft where that gossiping little gecko is concerned.

Dimitri: Careful, auntie. That gossiping little gecko is the man I love.

Leo: So, you’re saying that Dimitri can’t keep his hands off you?

Gwen: I’m telling you, Matty, the past few days, he’s just been in such a great mood. And he’s always in the mood. We are constantly shagging. Shagging in the morning, in the afternoon, before dinner, after…

Leo: Okay, okay, I get it. You two are shagging. A lot.

Gwen: And his appetite is just insatiable, I swear. It’s like somebody’s just fed a very horny Popeye his spinach.

Leo: Well, I’m so happy for you. And for horny Popeye.

Gwen: Well, thank you, darling. I would be very happy for me, too, if I wasn’t so bloody knackered. I swear, I can barely keep up. And you know how you kept joking about him having this magic penis?  Well, there’s no joke at all. Actually, it’s, um, quite accurate.

Alex: I wish we could hang. You know, split a bottle of wine, maybe some of Uncle Vic’s favorite papoutsakia. But I already told you, I have to go get ready. I have to shower. Brady and I are going to meet that guy Constantine. We have things to do.

Theresa: Papoutsakia? Isn’t that Kiriakis, there’s only one. Big, big plant that I’m after.

Alex: Oh, Theresa.

Theresa: Get over yourself, Kiriakis. I’m just teasing you. Go ahead. Shower. Go.

Alex: Okay, yes, I am going to do that. And while I’m doing that, why don’t you go ahead and book yourself a flight back to the States. Hey, lookit. My wallet’s right over there. First class. Put it on Basic Black.

Theresa: Put it on Basic Black. You’re right.

Brady: Knock, knock, knock, knock.

Theresa: Ahem.

Brady: Theresa. What the hell are you doing here?

Theresa: Oh, hello to you, too. Hey listen, if you’re looking for Alex, he’s in the shower because, well, he just worked up quite the sweat.

Julie: You are despicable!

Maggie: Julie.

Julie: Maggie, I know this is not my house, but just say the word. Just say the word, and I would so gladly kick this postmenopausal Gorgon to the curb.

Vivian: Oh, I’m so sorry. I don’t think Maggie will be able to do that. Will you, Maggie?

Julie: What does she mean? Somebody say something.

Vivian: Well, if she won’t tell you, I will. You see, Julie, you were right about this house. It’s not yours. And it’s not Maggie’s either.

Julie: You’re out of your mind.

Vivian: In fact, Maggie, I don’t understand what you’re still doing here. Justin and his wife had the good sense to leave this house last night, and I suggest that you…m And your gal pal do as well.

Julie: You’re telling me that Victor destroyed his will? And that Vivian and Victor never divorced?

Vivian: You catch on so quickly, Julie.

Julie: Is that some kind of a joke?

Vivian: My late husband’s estate is no laughing matter.

Maggie: Don’t you dare call him that!

Vivian: Well, that’s precisely what Victor was when he passed. My husband, Maggie. Not yours.

Maggie: I don’t give a damn about some courthouse mishap. You get this through your head. Victor Kiriakis was my husband. My husband! In every way that mattered.

Vivian: Well, except legally. So, you know, you’ll have to excuse me. I have some errands to run, and if you two are here when I come back, I’ll just have to call the authorities and have you frog marched off the premises.

Excuse me.

Gabi: I see it, we have two options. Option A. We expose Dimitri, embarrass him, make him tabloid fodder. Or, option B, we extort him for every single share of DiMera Enterprises that belongs to him and his mommy.

I prefer the latter option.

I knew you would. Okay, so why don’t we get the ball rolling on this. We go downstairs, we have a little chat with our clever, but not clever enough, nephew.

Mmm, nothing like a little eggs benedict with a side of black mail.

Like breakfast. And you, my love, are my kind of breakfast.

Well, as much as I’d love for you to partake of me right here, right now, I think we better get this show on the road.

Brady: Mmm, Theresa, you have pulled some pretty audacious crap in the past, but following me to Greece while I’m on an urgent family matter?

Theresa: Are you I have to remind you? I am family, too. We share a son, remember? He was Victor’s great grandson.

Brady: I’m very aware of that. Tate is one of the only reasons why I put up with this kind of crap.  Why would you come here uninvited?

Theresa: I was invited.

Brady: What?

Theresa: Yeah. By Alex. He thought that I could help with your mission.

Brady: No. You’re lying. He would not invite you on this trip.

Theresa: Maybe. He would. Because maybe, just maybe, your cousin sees something in me that you don’t.

Brady: Don’t do this, okay? Alex is not J. J. Devereaux. Don’t start trying to play your little mind games. Don’t do it.

Theresa: Why? Are you jealous?

Brady: You would love that, wouldn’t you?

Theresa: Hey, Brady. What’s going on?

Brady: I was hoping you could tell me. Uh, Theresa is obviously here. She said that she was invited. She’s making that up, right?

Kristen: Well, so you have fallen in love with Leo Stark.

Dimitri: What difference does it make? The important thing is that Roth believes that Leo and I are soulmates. Made for each other, even. And that was enough for him to release the funds.

Kristen: Uh, what do you mean, release the funds? So where’s my cut?

Dimitri: Right, yes, about that, um…That is on hold for a while. Yes, you see, Roth only brought the first installment of said trust fund, and I do have certain expenses.

Kristen: Yes, yes you do, nephew. Like paying me to stay silent over the sham of a marriage you have.

Dimitri: Kristen, Kristen, Kristen. It is only a matter of time before I receive the bulk of my inheritance back.

Kristen: Okay, you know… You know what? You better not be playing games with me, nephew. Because if you do… If you cross me, I will tell Gwen everything.

Tell Gwen everything about what?

Gwen: Oh, I swear, Matty, Dimitri von Leuschner and his magic penis might just be the death of me. And while we’re on the topic of magic… Have you ever heard of a move called the pinball wizard? I hadn’t heard about it either until Dimitri introduced me. It’s when a man takes a woman by the calves and–

Leo: Shut up!  Will you please just shut the hell up?

Gwen: My goodness, Matty, what was that about?

Leo: I… I don’t know what that was. I’m so sorry. No idea what came over me.

Gwen: I thought you were happy for me and Dimitri.

Leo: I am! I just… Well, I was up late last night ruminating over who shot JFK, and lone gunman theory. It makes no sense. Okay, I’m also really jealous.

Gwen: You’re jealous?  Of me?

Leo: Of course I am. You’ve got this rich, gorgeous, virile zaddy, and I’ve got no one.

Gwen: No one? Well, what happened to Matthew Perry, your married boyfriend?

Leo: We broke up.

Gwen: Oh dear. What happened?

Leo: He decided to work things out with his wife.

Gosh. I’m so sorry.

Leo: It’s my own fault for getting involved with someone as deep in the closet as my bright yellow ski onesie.

Gwen: Oh, come on, babe. Don’t let that get you down. Look me in the eye. You… Are a real catch, my friend.

Leo: You think so?

Gwen: I know so. You’re clever, you’re witty, you’re smart, you’re incredibly handsome. You remember that time when you looked exactly like Jake Gyllenhaal in that dressing room mirror?

Leo: Yeah, except I’m a bit taller.

Gwen: Yeah, I’d say you’re a bit shorter, but that’s… Besides the point, isn’t it? ’cause I know that one day you are going to meet somebody as wonderful as my Dimitri. I’m sure of it.

Stefan: My wife asked you a question. Kristen, what exactly are you planning on telling Gwen and why does it have our nephew here?

Stefan: Looking like you saw a ghost, mother, or should I say

what? How? How did you get out of prison?

Vivian: Well, I found a pickax on the ground and chiseled my way through the granite. Just kidding. Hasn’t anyone ever heard of good behavior? Well, moving right along. Tell me, Gabriella, how did you get my son to remarry you?

Stefan: Uh, she didn’t have to get me to do anything, Mother.

We’re in love. More so now than ever.

Vivian: Really?


Vivian: Well, tread carefully. Because this woman was in love with Nick Fallon. And that didn’t work out too well for Nick, did it?

Gabi: It didn’t work out for Nick because he was an abusive jerk whom I had to defend myself against. Oh, you know, like Melanie Jonas mom did when she had to defend herself against her creepy nephew Lawrence.

Vivian: How dare you bring up that ghastly Von Leuschner’s name and what she did to my Lawrence.

Gabi: Well, I’m sorry, but you’re insinuating that I’m not good enough for your son.

Vivian: Did I insinuate it? Well, I meant to state it as a fact.

Gabi: Okay, well, here’s another fact for you. You are the reason Stefan and I lost years.  Years! Because he took a bullet for you.

Dimitri: Hi, yeah, I’m sorry to interrupt here, but, um, Who exactly is this woman, and what is her issue with the Von Leuschners?

Alex: Come on, man, you gotta believe me. I did not invite Theresa to Greece. In fact, I told her very emphatically that she should–

Theresa: Oh, yada yada yada. You know, it doesn’t really matter because I’m here now. So, why don’t we just make the most of it, you know? Let’s see. Ugh, well, the line for the Acropolis is gonna be murder right now, so how about this? I think the three of us should go out and solve the mystery of Victor Kiriakis final days. What do you think?

Alex: Hey, don’t look at me.

Theresa: Okie dokie, boys! Shall we?

Theresa, I don’t– I don’t know how to tell you this, okay, but there is no way in hell you are coming with us.

Theresa: Okay? Fine. Fine. It’s fine. I’ll just, uh, stay here and, you know, do some sightseeing.

I have a better idea. Why don’t– why don’t we, uh, drop you off at the airport, and I’ll book you a ticket home.

Theresa: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. See, I did not sit on a flight, Brady, for 10 hours and 25 minutes watching Zorba the Greek on my laptop to whet my appetite for this country, only to turn around and spend another 10 and a half hours sitting in the middle in economy. You know what I learned from Zorba? I learned that adversity is our greatest teacher.  And sometimes when life has our backs against the wall, well, that is where we find our core strength. It’s actually kind of a metaphor for my life. Anyway, fabulous country, wonderful people. I cannot wait to explore it.

Alex: All right. So she clearly has no intentions of going back to the States, Brady. So, I think maybe we should just relax about it.

Brady: All right. I’m going to relax about it. Tell you what. I’m going to tell you this one time: do not get into any kind of trouble, and I swear to God if you follow us to–

Theresa: God, I am not going to follow you Brady, sheesh. You know what, actually, my jet lag is setting in. Hey, Alex, you wouldn’t mind if I just knocked on your bed, would you?

Knock yourself out.

We’ve wasted enough time, let’s go.

Theresa: Yeah, uh, hi there, I’d like to order a double portion of moussaka and a side of baklava. Ooh, and if you could also send up a bottle of ouzo, that would be great.

Gwen: All right, my darling, well, I really must be off. Dimitri’s bought me this sexy new lingerie. It’s this, um, crotchless lace teddy that he wants me to try on, so…

Leo: Right.

Gwen: Yeah, and I don’t like being away from my husband for too long, as much as he wears me out, so, um… I’ll see you later.

Leo: Yeah, see you later. Oh Matty, Dimitri and his magic penis are going to be the death of me. And have you heard of a move called the pinball wizard? I cannot wait to try it again, this time wearing my crotchless teddy. And oh Matty, we shag non stop, round the clock. Shag, shag, shagging our brains out. Ah, dammit Dimitri. What kind of game are you playing?

Vivian: Forgive me handsome stranger, we haven’t been properly introduced. I’m Vivian Alamein.

Dimitri: You’re in Alamein.

Vivian: That’s right. And who would you be?

Kristen: This is Dimitri, my sister Megan’s son.

Vivian: Oh, wait a minute. I seem to remember that one of Stefano’s supposedly deceased progeny pulled a Lazarus. Oh, but I’m sure your mother’s just lovely.

Dimitri: Oh, yes, she is. As is my cousin Katerina, you know. The one that you buried alive.

Vivian: Wait. Carly’s your cousin? And, uh, you are a DiMera? Your mother is a DiMera? And Carly’s your relative? That makes you a–

Dimitri: A Von Leuschner, yes. And your sworn enemy.

Vivian: Well, that’s very unfortunate. I do hope you take after the maternal side. As lovely as this family reunion has been, I think I better be going. Au revoir, mon fille.

Stefan: Uh, Mother, wait. You’ve done a whole lot of talking, and you’ve made it abundantly clear that you are still as sharp tongued and bitter as ever. But you haven’t told us what you’re doing in Salem.

Maggie: Oh, I can’t believe this is happening. Julie, I could lose my home. Everything that Victor and I built here. All of it just lost to that she wolf.

Julie: Well, I can’t believe it either, and I’m not going to. Now, there must be something that Justin can do for you.

Maggie: Legally, no. No, no, no, he can’t. He looked into Vivian’s claim that she and Victor’s divorce was…Never properly finalized. And apparently, it’s legit.

Julie: Oh, God. Well, you can’t surrender. I mean, you’ve got to fight. You’ve got to, Maggie. Listen, a problem like Vivian Alamein cannot be solved over a cup of tea. So, why don’t you come back to my house, and we’ll sit down and calmly plan your next move.

Maggie: You don’t expect me to give in to Vivian’s demands.

Julie: Oh, not by a long shot. No, no, you’d only be out of here for a short time, just long enough to get your bearings. You don’t want to give Vivian the satisfaction of throwing you out of Victor’s house, do you?

Maggie: No.

Julie: Okay. Well, wouldn’t it be just better if you left of your own volition, just for a short time.Just until we make this plan, this plan that’s going to turn Vivian into mincemeat and pitch her out into the street. Because you’ve got to fight, Maggie. You’ve got to fight. And I’m going to fight with you.

Vivian: Now, if you must know, I have a slight infestation of rodents in the house, which has to be taken care of before I move in.

Uh, brilliant. Just what we needed. Vivian on the loose. I’m gonna give Eli a call. Give him fair warning.

Kristen: Um, Dimitri, darling, why don’t we go and finish our conversation?

Oh, I think it can wait, don’t you?

Of course.

Dimitri: Well, I should be going, too.

Oh, not so fast, Dimitri. See, I really don’t appreciate it when my questions go unanswered, so I’ll ask you again. What was Kristen threatening to tell Gwen earlier?

Actually, we’ll save you the trouble of having to come up with a lie. We know, Dimitri.

You know what?

Oh, come on. We know you’re having an affair with Leo Stark.  Don’t deny it, because Rachel saw the two of you in bed together, and we know you got his hotel room in Iceland. Nephew. Buddy. So rattled. You see, my wife and I are willing to keep your dirty, no good, extramarital affair a secret. Yeah, but we do have conditions.

Constantine: I am Constantine Meliones. How may I assist you?

Brady: Pleasure to meet you. I’m Brady Black. This is my cousin, Alex Kiriakis.

Constantine: Kiriakis? Related to Victor Kiriakis?

Alex: Yeah, he’s my was my uncle.

Brady: And my grandfather.

Constantine: Ah, well, I am very sorry for your loss. Victor was a great man.

Thank you. It’s to our understanding that you met with Uncle Victor before he died.  Can you tell us what that meeting was about?

There’s It’s about damn time. Oh my god.

Vivian: Maggie, I see you’re still here. We’ll have it your way. I’ll just call the sheriff.

Don’t bother.

Baby, ready to leave?

Almost. I’ll just wait in the car.

OVivian: h, I see you’ve come to your s Ugh. Senses. Oh, FYI Maggie. I’ve always thought you better suited to a family of midwestern suburbanites, as opposed to the matriarch of the great Kiriakis clan.

Maggie: You may have won this round, Vivian, but mark my word, the war, it’s just beginning.

Vivian: To the victor go the spoils, Maggie.

Did you see the Hathaway’s plan to eliminate you, her own brother, in a palace. Kua DiMera Enterprises. ’cause now we’ve got her slimy sun, Dimitri and her shares right where we want ’em.

Uh, thank God you’re here.

Leo: But where else would I be? But here, my love pining away for you and so on and so on.

Dimitri: Really just shut up and listen for a second.  We’ve got serious trouble.

Leo: You’re damn right. We’ve got serious trouble. You are two-timing me with your wife. You ridiculously handsome dirtbag.

Kristen: Oh, good morning, Gwen.

Gwen: Morning, Kristen. You haven’t happened to see my husband around, have you?

Kristen: Well, he was here earlier, but, uh, he must have went out.

Gwen: Oh, that’s a shame. We were supposed to have breakfast together.

Kristen: Look, um, there’s something I, I feel I need to tell you. I, I, I wouldn’t have said anything, but Demetrius forced my hand.

Gwen: I see. What is it?

Kristen: Well, it has to do with Dimitri and your best friend.

Gwen: What about them?

Kristen: Alright, Dimitri and Leo are having an affair.

Gwen: No, Kristen. I already knew that.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Audra: Oh, stop it. Oh.

Kyle: Surprised to see you two together.

Audra: Oh, we’re old friends, kyle. You know, former business associates. We catch up from time to time.

Kyle: I’m surprised because last I heard, you were on your honeymoon with my aunt. So, why are you back in town so soon? And where’s ashley?

Diane: Have you heard from billy?

Jack: No. Not a word. I have no idea what he has found out about what tucker is up to or why he’s back in this town without his new wife.

Diane: We are right back where we started, you know? The more things change–

Jack: What does that mean? Right back where we started?

Diane: Worrying about tucker, what his agenda is, what he has planned. It’s as if we’ve traveled back in time and he’s dropped back into our lives at kyle and summer’s vow renewal.

Jack: You know, I wouldn’t going back there if it could mean keeping kyle and summer as happy as they were that day.

Diane: That’d be nice, wouldn’t it? You know what, jack? We can get back to when you and I were happily discussing our reception plans. It was just a couple hours ago.

Jack: Yeah, it was, wasn’t it?

Diane: Yeah, come on. Let’s get it back. Let’s get back the excitement. It would be– it would be nice, even– even if it’s just a few minutes.

Jack: I would like nothing more. We are not going to let tucker ruin our happiness, and mark my word, I’m very happy.

[ Abby sighing ]

Devon: Hey, any word from your mom yet?

Abby: No. Nothing yet. I mean, I don’t understand why she can’t send me a text saying, “I’m okay,” or at least return one of my calls. Something is really wrong.

Devon: Don’t think that. I’m sure she’s gonna reach out to you.

Abby: Look, I have to go to society. It won’t take me very long, but will you know what tucker says?

Devon: Yes, of course I will. Of course. And hey, everything’s gonna be okay, all right? I promise you. I do. Try not to worry so much. I know it doesn’t help to tell someone who’s worrying not to worry, but tucker will be here soon and I’m gonna find out as much as I can and figure out what really happened between him and your mom.

Abby: Well, what makes you think tucker will be honest with us?

Tucker: Ashley’s in paris, kyle. She had some things to do there, didn’t need my help, so I came back to town to take care of some local business.

Kyle: Oh, really?

Tucker: Really. Thanks again.

Kyle: I didn’t realize the two of you still spend time together, other than the occasional tete-a-tete to compare blackmail–

Audra: You know, I– I have A… a meeting that I should probably go to, so.

Kyle: No, I know that meeting. I’m in that meeting too and, uh, we have some time until that meeting, so I can think of a good way to fill that time. (Vo)you weren’t made for moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by… eggland’s best.

Audra: Look, obviously I’d love nothing more than to spend some quality time with you, but I have some calls that I have to make before the meeting, and, um, since our connection is supposed to be a secret, we should probably move on from my suite as a meeting place anyway.

Kyle: I guess that’s true.

Audra: Great. Um, I’ll see you at the office.

Kyle: Um, I was actually gonna get a quick workout.

Audra: Oh.

Kyle: Not the one I was hoping for, unfortunately. Then, I’ll head back to the office.

Audra: I’ll see you there.

Kyle: Mm.

Billy: So, that was interesting timing.

Kyle: Hm?

Billy: I need to talk to you about something.

Kyle: Oh, yeah? What about?

Billy: Audra and tucker mccall.

Diane: I almost feel guilty being this happy with the threat that’s facing our family. I’m– I’m sorry I mentioned tucker.

Jack: Maybe tucker isn’t actually a threat. Maybe he and ashley are just having marital issues. You wouldn’t be shocked by that, would you?

Diane: I guess not.

Jack: Hey, worst case scenario, he’s planning a move. Let him make his move. I’m not afraid. I have the love and support of my family, starting with you and that makes me virtually invincible.

Diane: You know you can count on me, right, jack? You know that I’ll do anything to help and to protect jabot.

Jack: Yes, I know that.

Diane: Okay.

Jack: It’s one of the things I love most about you. I know I can count on you.

Tucker: Where’s the little man?

Devon: Oh, he’s not here. He’s on a play date.

Tucker: Oh.

Devon: Yeah.

Tucker: So, you just…

Devon: I wanna talk to you. I wanna talk to you about ashley ’cause abby’s worried about her.

Tucker: Oh. Have they spoken?

Devon: No. They haven’t spoken at all and abby’s been leaving voicemails and text messages and she’s gotten zero response, which is leading abby to think that there’s something really wrong ’cause her mom wouldn’t go this long without letting her know that she’s okay.

Tucker: Is abby here?

Devon: No, she’s not here. It’s just us two.

Tucker: Oh, so this is why you invited me over.

Devon: Yes, it is. I’d like to know what the hell happened in paris and this is your chance to tell me.

Ashley: So, you know that jabot has always been a big part of me. When I was a little girl, my dad would take all three of us to jabot. He wanted to show us what he did for a living. It was very sweet. And when I graduated from college, I mean, that was my very first job. Straight to the lab. You know, and I guess, um, I guess I never really quite left.

Tucker: You know, I’m– I’m well aware that jabot was a huge part of your life. I just thought you were in a place now where you realized that you didn’t need it more. Or your siblings.

Ashley: Well, I mean, I thought I could walk away. I’ve done it before, so I just, you know, I was trying to convince myself, I guess. Jack and I just had A… we just kind of reconnected, you know? The last talk we had, it was just very honest and very real and it was– it was great ’cause it was like– it was like how it used to be between us.

Tucker: Mm-hmm. Well, that’s great and everyone’s friends again and you can walk away with a clear conscience.

Ashley: It’s just not that simple, you know? I’ve– I’ve…

[ Ashley sighing ] Jabot is a– is a lifeblood for me. The company and the family that built it. I mean, tucker, that’s my family. And I just– I’ve realized that that lifeblood is something that is more important to me than I think I was even aware of. I mean, it kinda makes sense, doesn’t it? Why I always go back? I– I– no matter how upset I am or hurt or angry, I mean, I– I– I go back. Jabot, it just– it calls to me. It’s a part of me and I’m a part of it and, uh, I just can’t seem to break that tie.

Tucker: So, are you trying to tell me something here? Are you just gonna… throw away all our plans, our future, just like that? Everything went wrong.

Kyle: All right. Let’s hear it. What about audra and tucker?

Billy: First thing’s first, I don’t trust either one of them.

Kyle: That’s helpful.

Billy: They clearly have some sort of relationship.

Kyle: So?

Billy: Tucker’s supposed to be in paris on his honeymoon with ashley, yet he’s here and ashley is not. You don’t– you don’t think that’s strange, kyle?

Kyle: I think that’s not great, but not necessarily strange.

Billy: Okay, well, your father and I think it is strange. There’s something going on and something not good. Tucker is here and he’s agitated. He seems a little off kilter, so that means we should be all on alert.

Kyle: Yeah, when I saw tucker just now, I mean, he didn’t seem like his usual self. No clever line, no giving me a hard time. Maybe he was on edge.

Billy: Well, there you go. That says something.

Kyle: Look, of course I’m on ashley’s side, no matter what tucker’s done, but why are you coming to me about this? How do I fit in?

[ Billy sighing ]

Billy: You and audra have a business relationship and you have a personal relationship, so I’m hoping that you can do a tt knows about his state of mind.

Kyle: You mean spy for you, billy. Yeah. No. Not happening.

Tucker: So, we get to paris and out of nowhere, ashley decides that she can no longer turn her back on jabot or her family.

Devon: Well, what’s wrong with that? She loves them and they love her, right?

Tucker: We had plans. We had made plans together. For us, for a new company, and then all of a sudden, she says, “no, I’m not interested.” So, yeah, we fought. As you can imagine, it was a bad fight.

Devon: And you’re telling me that it was so bad that you guys couldn’t work through it? And that your marriage is already in trouble?

Tucker: Yeah. Things were said. Accusations were made. I don’t think we can roll it back. I don’t think it’s possible.

Devon: How are you gonna say that already? Couples fight all the time, you know that. You don’t think you guys are blowing things out of proportion and just take a second to cool off and start thinking rationally?

Tucker: I’m thinking rationally. Ashley is not, at all.

Devon: All right. Tucker, there has to be more to this story. There just has to be something else. Did you do something to ashley that you’re not telling me about?

[ Phone ringing ]

Jack: Ashley! Are you okay? Where are you?

Ashley: Calm down, jack. I’m fine, all things considered.

Jack: Wait. What does thn?S that am okay and I’m in paris.

Jack: Why are you there and your new husband is here?

Ashley: Because it’s all changed. Everything has changed. These hands used to hold me as a little girl.

Billy: Hear me out for a second because if tucker feels slighted or rejected by ashley for whatever reason, well, he’s gonna want revenge and that makes him dangerous.

Kyle: Dangerous how?

Billy: He could be plotting against the family. Against jabot.

Kyle: So, this is about the company and not about your sister’s welfare?

Billy: Protecting the company, preserving your grandfather’s legacy is looking out for ashley. You remember when tucker came to town? Wanted your mother to do a little bit of dirty work for him?

Kyle: He wanted her to get him some insider financial data.

Billy: Exactly. So, maybe he’s back on that track. Maybe it’s not just about jabot. Maybe he’s coming after jack, you, me, all of us. Maybe he blames us for whatever’s going on between him and ashley.

Kyle: So, his plan of attack is the abbott family itself.

Billy: Which inevitably affects you. It impacts your mother.

Kyle: I guess that makes sense in some kind of screwed up tucker way, but this is all vague and hypothetical. You don’t really have anything other than a couple of newlyweds are on two different continents for no apparent reason.

Billy: Let me ask you a question, kyle. Why do you think tucker and audra are hanging out?

Kyle: I admit, them rekindling their friendship, it kinda bugs me a little.

Billy: I could imagine.

Kyle: I never trusted tucker and good on ashley if she dumped him because of whatever he did. Fine by me, but I don’t see a way that audra would confide in me.

Billy: Aren’t you two, uh…

[ Clicks tongue ] You know.

Kyle: Not anymore. Besides, she’s my boss. Can’t push her too hard.

Billy: All right, then. Well, that’s too bad. Guess I’m gonna have to find out what I need to know from someone else.

Ashley: After the last talk we had when we kind of made amends, I decided that, you know, it would be great to getaway and maybe just think. And so, uh…

[ Ashley sighing ] Sorry. I texted tucker and I said, “let’s not wait to take our honeymoon.” And he agreed and so we– we came to paris.

Jack: And?

Ashley: Well, I got here and I started thinking about the talk we had. And jack, I just realized that I– I couldn’t walk away from jabot. I couldn’t walk away from my family. I mean, I’d done it before and I guess, you know, even then, I tried to convince myself that I was happy and that I was actually fulfilled, but was it really true?

Jack: No.

Ashley: No. This time, it was no different, you know? I just, I– I– I can’T. I can’t let jabot go. I can’t let my family go. I don’t even want to. So, I, uh, tried to make tucker understand that, you know? I mean, after all, the only thing he’s been telling me since he came back to town was how much he loved me, how much he wanted me to be happy and he just wanted to marry me and just wanted to be with me, but then, when I started to express to him how I was having second thoughts about starting a business with him, he got so incredibly angry. I mean, he was like angrier than I’ve ever seen him before.

Jack: I am so sorry.

Ashley: He accused me of playing with his emotions, jack. He said that I– I’d made all these– these plans with him and that I was just pulling the rug out from under him. I had this, um… I had this moment of clarity. I mean, that charming, easy going, loving tucker, you know, that made me fall in love with him again, I think it was just a facade. I don’t think he’s really changed at all. I just realized I can’t live with that.

Tucker: I did not do anything to ashley. In fact, I did everything right this time. Everything. Everything I could control, at least. What I didn’t realize is the hold that the abbotts have over her. I thought she could walk away. I thought maybe, maybe, finally, I would be enough for her. That my love for her was enough. That my commitment to her was enough. Guess not.

Ashley: I am not throwing anything away. We still have an incredible future together. We’re husband and wife. We just won’t be business partners, that’s all.

Tucker: It just…

Ashley: What?

Tucker: You couldn’t have come to this decision a little sooner? Before this moment? Instead, you lead me on. You just– you lead me to believe that we’re gonna be working side-by-side and then boom, all of a sudden, you change your mind, just like that?

Ashley: It wasn’t all of a sudden. I’ve thought about this.

Tucker: Yeah, I can see you’ve thought about it. By yourself. Where was I, your husband, in this decision making? Don’t you think you and i should’ve discussed this? It just took one conversation with jack for you to decide to just trash all our plans? Everything we’ve been talking about for months? For months?

Ashley: You act like I’m betraying you. I’m not.

Tucker: What would you call it?

Devon: Hey. I still don’t understand why you’re not in paris right now working this all out with your wife.

Tucker: Because there’s nothing to work out.

Devon: What are you talking about?

Tucker: No. It’S… I can’t compete with the jabot lifeblood.

Devon: What’s the jabot lifeblood?

Tucker: That’s what ashley calls it. I’m sick of trying. I offered her a new life. Free of– of perpetual conflicts with jack. Free of the constant presence of diane, who she despises. She’s just not interested. So, you’ve made up your mind then? You’d rather share your life with jabot than with me.

Ashley: You know what? That’s not fair. Why can’t it be both? Why? Tell me.

Tucker: This is really something. After all your talk about not being sure I had changed, so reluctant to– to take a leap with me, to trust me, and now you’re the one who can’t commit, who’s walking away.

Ashley: I am not walking away from you. I am right here!

Tucker: It feels like it. Our life together has just begun and you are… you’re already a different woman than the one I married. Wait, listen, I don’t see how any of this affects our relationship. I mean, I realize it might put you in kind of a bind with abby.

Devon: If what you’re saying is the trud do anything to ashley and you’re just having a fight like married people have, that’s okay.

Tucker: Thank you.

Devon: But, if there’s more to it and you did do something that you’re not telling me about, that’s a different story.

[ Door slamming ] Hey. Trying to control my asthma felt anything but normal.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Dehydrated hair?

Abby: Hi, what’s going on?

Tucker: Have you heard from your mother?

Abby: I have, actually.

Devon: You have?

Abby: Yeah. My mom called me when I was on my way back to the house. She’s in paris. My mom told me that she and tucker got in a fight and that he disrespected her and didn’t consider her feelings or anything that she wanted at all.

Tucker: Well, in that case, you don’t have the total picture.

Abby: It’s over. The marriage, your business partnership and my mom made one thing very clear. She told me not to worry about her, that it’s you I should be worried about.

Devon: What are you talking about?

Abby: Well, tucker is hurt and angry and she reminded me that a hurt and angry tucker can be very unpredictable. You know, everything I predicted that was gonna happen, it happened. You haven’t even been married to my mom for one month and you completely broke her heart.

Tucker: It’s the other way around. But I could never convince you, could I? Ashley’s right about one thing. It’s over. All of it. I’m done.

[ Door slamming ]

[ Abby sighing ]

Diane: Jack, you okay?

Jack: Yeah. I– I just got off the phone with ashley.

Diane: Really? She called? Where is she?

Jack: She’s in paris.

Diane: Still?

Jack: She’s having second thoughts about leaving jabot, about leaving the family.

Diane: Well, that’s a good thing for you, isn’t it?

Jack: Oh, believe me, I am thrilled that my sister has come to her senses. That she wants to work side-by-side together. That she wants to repair our relationship. I just hate how tucker reacted when she tried to explain her change of heart to him.

Diane: I’m sure he didn’t take it very well.

Jack: No, it did not go well. They apparently had quite a fight. He went ballistic. He basically accused her of being a traitor for not going through with a company they were going to build to compete with jabot. He scared the hell out of her.

Diane: Are we really surprised that he acted that way?

Jack: No, I guess not. I just hate that he hurt her. After months, I had been telling her it was going to come to this. All this self-realization crap is nothing. Tucker is trouble. He has been trouble since he landed that damned helicopter on our lawn. At least now, my sister is on the same page.

Billy: You know, tucker, most people thought you would be swimming across the atlantic on your way back to ashley, begging her to take you back, unless she’s on her way back here.

Tucker: Since when is my marriage any of your business?

Billy: No, it’s not. I just– I– I mean, if– if my new wife pulled a 180 like that because she figured out that she made a mistake? I’m not saying ashley did that. I’m just saying that if that did happen, that would piss me off too. But then again, I know my sister. She’s unpredictable. You never really know what move she’s gonna make next.

Tucker: Do you have a point?

Billy: Yeah, I do. It– it’s jack. To be honest, he gives heroouc he tends to turn the other cheek when she gets volatile. Me? Not so much. In fact, it pisses me off and I don’t think it’s acceptable and I think maybe–

Tucker: What do you want, billy?


macular degeneration

Abby: I had my doubts about my mom and tucker, up until they said, “I do,” but I don’t know. She seemed so happy and they seemed so sure. I just– I was not expecting this.

Devon: Yeah, no, neither was I. He– he seemed to be in real pain.

Abby: Well, what did he tell you?

Devon: He told me that they got in a fight about your mom not wanting to let go of her connection to jabot. And about her wanting to forget about the idea of creating a new business to compete with the family company.

Abby: My mom said that– I mean, that’s when he just lost it. I mean, he went into this rage and it was so intense that it scared her and that’s when she realized that all this talk about tucker being this changed man was just that. It was all talk and he is the same manipulative man that he’s always been. He just got better at hiding it.

Devon: Well, I’m sorry.

Abby: I don’t know why I’m so surprised. I mean, I guess if tucker was gonna show his true colors, it’s better that he did it sooner rather than later.

Diane: At least there’s one good thing.

Jack: Yeah, what’s that?

Diane: You and ashley are in a better place. Will never be close. The most we can hope for is civil, but we do share something in common. We both love you and we both want the best for you. And I know that you are miserable when you and ashley aren’t getting along, so I am rooting for this reconciliation.

Jack: So am I.

Diane: Yeah.

Jack: My relationship with my sister has always been complex. We were each other’s biggest cheerleaders, our– each other’s biggest rivals. We competed for dad’s attention for leadership roles in jabot, all wrapped up in being right. So absolutely certain that we knew the best thing. So much so that we forgot the most important thing: We were brother and sister. It would take some event, some wake up call for us to remember.

Diane: Like what?

Jack: You know, like… a few years ago, she left for paris with all of her patents. I never thought we’d make it back from that. You know how we got back? Neil winters died. And the two of us sat mourning together. We made those first tentative steps mourning the loss of a friend, and over time, we found our way to merging the two companies and reuniting and working on our relationship.

Diane: And then, I came back to town.

Jack: I do not hold you responsible for my contentious relationship with my sister. That was tucker mccall and it isn’t like the two of us haven’t argued before about each other’s choice of partners. Besides, you saving her life has made this latest reconciliation possible.

Diane: What? Do you really think so?

Jack: Absolutely. You made that happen. And I’ll tell you this. I am absolutely certain who I want in my life.

Diane: Aw.

Billy: I guess I’m just trying to get a lay of the land, you know? I mean, if your marriage is over, and I’m not saying it is, but if it is over for good, then that means ashley might come back to town and, of course, come back to jabot.

Tucker: Always looking out for number one, aren’t we?

Billy: You’re not surprised by that.

Tucker: No, I’m not. No. It’s funny you say that ashley is the unpredictable one. I see that. You’re the opposite, man. You are predictable. I mean, you’re so predictable, I’m a little shocked you’re not pointing a finger at me right now, accusing me of doing something horrible to ashley to drive her away.

Billy: Well, making assumptions doesn’t get me anywhere, does it?

Tucker: And you’re not in the least upset that I told jack you were willing to help ashley and me take over jabot and boot him out so you could take the reins?

Billy: You didn’t say anything that jack didn’t already suspect. ‘Cause the truth is, I was excited about taking over at jabot. And pushing diane out. But if ashley comes back to jabot, well, then there’s gonna be sparks. And that is not good for the company and I still believe that I am the most level-headed person to run that company.

Tucker: Good for you. Doesn’t your family deserve the best?

[ Devon exhaling ]

[ Abby sighing ]

Abby: I should’ve trusted my instincts.

Devon: What do you mean?

Abby: I knew– I knew that tucker could never love my mom the way that he claimed to. That he was just using her for her money and for her business expertise so that they could start this whole empire. But no, I pushed it aside because I thought that’s what my mom wanted. And then, my mom finally realized who tucker really is and she dismantled his whole plan and that is when he lost his mind.

Devon: Yeah, I mean, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to me because when I was talking to him, it felt like he was really hurt by what happened. You don’t think that it was just a misunderstanding that got out of hand and they need some time to cool off and then they’ll work it out?

Abby: Well, I don’t think my mom is coming back to genoa city anytime soon.

Devon: If she wants to have a bigger part in jabot, how’s that gonna work?

Abby: I don’t know. That’s what I said, but I know she wants to make it right with my uncle jack and I know that she wants to get back into product development. I mean, that’s her first true love, but she said that if she comes back to genoa city, it would be like throwing a grenade in this whole situation and that it would just enflame tucker even more.

Devon: Did she give a time table at all, though?

Abby: No! And it kills me. It kills me because I want my mom here. I need her close to me and all I can do is just step back and try to respect her if– if what she needs is time and space.

[ Abby sighing ] And I know you’re not gonna want to hear this, but… my mom did say she thinks tucker is plotting some sort of revenge, that he’s gonna do something vindictive.

Devon: Like, against her?

Abby: Against the family. And my uncle jack and billy, they think that he’s up to something. I know. I know that he’s your dad and I know that two of you have come such a long way and honestly, I can’t deny it. I mean, he’s been a pretty terrific grandfather to dom.

Devon: Yeah, I know. That’s why I don’t want to assume the worst. I’d like to try and give him the benefit of the doubt.

[ Tucker exhaling ]

Tucker: Hey, ashley. Uh… so, I just came from talking to abby. How dare you tell her that I’m the problem here? That I am the one that caused everything to come crashing down because I offered you the world! And at first, you– “oh, I’m so excited, I’m so on board with this– this future that we planned together!” And then, all of a sudden, on our honeymoon, no less, you said, “well, no, I’m out.” You chose jabot over me. You chose jack over me. So yes, things got a little heated, but I’d like to hear you deny that you led me on! That you– that you– that you didn’t just give me a glimpse of this bright, beautiful future and then just pull the plug. And now– and now, you have the gall to paint me as the bad guy? Really, ashley? What the hell happened? Where did we go so wrong?

Diane: Is billy on his way?

Jack: Yeah. I told him to meet us here.

Diane: I feel badly that we didn’t make it back to the office.

Jack: Oh, no. We have a great staff. They can hold the fort down.

Diane: Well, that’s true. And plus, the tucker news is probably going to impact jabot more than anything else–

Jack: Hey, come on in. Tell us what you’ve learned.

Diane: Hey, billy.

Billy: Well, I ran into tucker at the club.

Jack: And?

Billy: Typical. Very difficult to get any information out of him.

Jack: Well, maybe I can, uh, shed some light. Ashley called.

Billy: She did?

Jack: Yeah. She’s safe. She’s okay. She’s in paris. Most importantly though, she wants to come back to jabot?

Billy: Really?

Diane: Yes, and when she told tucker about it, apparently, he lost his mind.

Jack: I guess it got quite ugly. She said they fought like hell and his level of anger was more than a little disconcerting.

Diane: So, how did he seem to you?

Billy: Yeah, I mean, he was… he was very restrained. You could tell in his eyes, he had a lot of anger inside.

Jack: Oh, I have no doubt. Hey, look, for him to come straight back to this town, means one thing.

Billy: He’s got an agenda.

Jack: No doubt.

Diane: All right. He’s angry, he’s resentful and he’s looking to take it out on someone.

Billy: Tucker mccall is a legitimate threat.

Jack: Absolutely. And we have to be ready. We have to stop him from destroying everything and everyone that we love.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless…

Adam: Are you suggesting that we have dinner together?

Sally: Apparently, I am.

Phyllis: This is too serious of a game for me. I need to know the name of the company that I–

Tucker: No. You don’t need to know until I decide you need to know.

Lily: Victor now wants out of chancellor-winters. And what’s worst is that he’s privately sold off his stake to a third party already.

Devon: Who’s the third party investor?

Lily: That is the million dollar question.

 blair cramer, what a pleasure to finally meet you. Tracy quartermaine. Ms. Quartermaine. Thank you for joining me. I so much prefer doing business in person. Well, as do I. And this evening’s business is claiming what’s mine. God, not her. Tomorrow afternoon is pretty open, but you do have a call with the board scheduled for 5:30. After that, you’re free. That’s about it. Okay. Well, thank you. Thank you, ms. Davis. Oh, and I just sent you the cutest picture of ace at the pool. Bye. Bye-bye.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Hi, gregory, it’s me. I just wanted to let you know that I’m going to be at the office for about another hour or so. So stop by or call if you need me. Spencer: I need you. Do you have time for a fellow cassadine? Wow, joss. You’ve made so much progress moving in. The place looks great. I know. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I had every intention of unpacking. It’s just, dex came over, and, you know, we got a little… distracted. How distracted? Ava. What are you doing here? I dropped avery off. She’s upstairs with donna and pilar. Avery’s welcome anytime, but I didn’t have her on the schedule for tonight. I hope it’s okay for her to stay. I have a late dinner with clients. Avid collectors. I couldn’t say no. Really? See, I find it hard to believe you of all people have a hard time saying no. So give it up. What have you done this time? Nikolas: Dr. Gatlin holt. Just in time. Just in time for what? To say goodbye. Right this way. Okay. Thank you. Sure. This is great. Thanks. Thank you. Here you go. Thanks. And detective falconeri left this for you. Oh, great.

[ Sighs ]

What you mean is what was yours is now mine, because I paid dearly for it. Ah, yes, you did. But I am still due my final deal point. That will come soon enough. It better, because my ex is bleeding me dry, and the sooner he remarries, the better. Well, as soon as deception is mine, lucy coe will be flat broke, and she will begin hounding your ex mercilessly until he makes her mrs. Martin gray. Well, that works for me. What are you doing? We were gonna eat something. I’ll bet there’s a swell table with our names on it over at the pc grill. What do you say? No. No. Is it ’cause of tracy? No. No, no, no. I am not afraid of tracy quartermaine. Never have been. Never will be. No, lucy — I always have time for you. Whatcha got there? Uh, this is my future. It’s been over six months since my father disappeared. And as expected, the cassadine attorneys have been in touch. And the full control of the cassadine estate goes to the heir. And that would be you. That’s right. Yeah, they want to get the ball moving and, um… they want to give me full control. Uh, quite frankly, I don’t understand what any of this legalese means, but I was hoping that you might be able to translate. Oh, I can translate. Come with me. Let’s see what’s what. Whew. Trina: Girl, you and dex are too much. You were never like this with cam. Yeah, well, that was a different relationship. It seems like you guys can’t keep your hands off one another. Yes, I know. Were you guys always like this? No, I mean, not always. I-I think I was attracted to him from the very beginning, even though I didn’t want to admit that to myself. And now we’re together, and the more time we spend together, I guess the better everything else is, you know? Okay, I-I-I got to ask. Ask me what? Were you nervous the first time you were with dex? Nervous? I — why are you asking? Carly, I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’ve done nothing. You did something that handed austin and his cousin mason leverage over you. You think just because I’m asking you to watch avery, there’s some nefarious connection to austin and the creep? This is the second time you dropped her off unexpectedly. Carly, would you prefer it if I took avery and I left? No. This has nothing to do with avery, and you know it. Whatever’s going on, you’re in it up to your neck. And it’s only something that sonny can get you out of. So what is it? Ava, I just came back from pentonville, from visiting drew. Sonny and I went there to ask for his help. Sonny wants him to find out who your friend austin visited when he was there. Austin did what? Ava is going to be so happy to find out you’re alive when you get back to port charles. I’m not going to port charles. What do you mean? I can’t go back to port charles or let anyone know I’m alive until I’ve tied up some loose ends. Where are your loose ends if they’re not in port charles? In europe. And I leave in a few hours. Are we getting notes from other men? Should I be jealous? It’s more than a note. Well, I’m intrigued. What does dante have to say? Read it for yourself. Is it true?

Will always have a softspot in my heart for marty, but having to pay him 50 grand a month in alimony? Really putting a crimp in my budget. On top of that, my youngest is in college, and my jack, jack is my problem child whose problems only seem to be solved with money. Adorable. Rest assured, I have everything under control. I’m sure you do. So, how did it go in court? I was a little concerned at first. Intellectual property theft can be difficult to prove. But luckily you gave me enough ammunition for my lawyer, and everything went according to plan. And that tidbit about the deceptor was exactly what I needed to get the judge to hear the case. Great. I hope you know that, you know, I’m just doing all this to right a wrong. I mean, it’s not really about the money. A-an injustice was done here. People can’t just steal people’s ideas and and profit from it. I mean, I’m making a case about this that — well, actually, you are making a case. It’s about the people who get cheated out of their piece of the pie. And deception is one huge pie. Oh. So your intentions are purely altruistic. You’re doing this for the little people. Okay, okay. My motivation — this might be a little bit selfish, because the deceptor was my idea in the first place. I just never got around to finishing it. And knowing my ex the way that I do, I know that he will do anything to get what he wants. And in this case, it’s lucy. Mm-hmm. Mouthy marty, he couldn’t help himself. He had to share my design ideas just to win her over. I wouldn’t call lucy a win. Who is that blond bob person with tracy over there? You know, I think I’ve seen her before. I haven’t got the foggiest. You know, this is all sort of a big “so what?” Are you sure you won’t change your mind about heading over to the grill? I would purely love some of the crab cakes. No. But I do think I know why you want to leave. You do? Mm-hmm. It’s ’cause of that horrible, nasty tracy. You know what? She does make you lose your appetite. But that’s okay. We are not budging. We are going to stick around. We’re staying. Well, in that case, I’m going to need a shot of something. I mean, present company and all, I think we should just remain calm and order ourselves a couple of drinks. This is a really complicated document, so I’m going to need some time with this. So what I’ll do is I’ll square things away. I’ll give you some instruction, and I’ll get it back to you by tomorrow night. Is that going to work for you? Yes. You were smart to bring it to me first. I appreciate it. I’m happy to do it, actually, because I’ve kind of miss– no, I’m not just talking about the legal document. I mean… family, and I’m very grateful for you. I’m so grateful for you. And for better or worse — and worse when it comes to the cassadines — we’re family, and we have an unbreakable bond. Except for not where my father is concerned. When he pretended to be dead all of those years, I thought that he had sunk as far as he could. But then he disappeared, and he abandoned my brother. How does someone walk out on a baby? Your father had no frame of reference on how to be a father. I mean, his own father was a horrible role model. And I’m not making excuses for him. I’m not. I just have a soft spot for him because he’s damaged, and it wasn’t his fault. There is no justification for a parent walking out on their child. Never. But I can say with certainty that he loved you. But he has an odd way of showing it. But I am glad that I have you. I am always here for you. You know that. Well, on that note, I have one more favor that I’d like to ask you. Okay. This one’s about ace. Austin: The hell are you talking about? You can’t go to europe. You need a passport. You need money. Where did you get these clothes? Austin, I have multiple accounts and aliases. Of course you do. How could I not know that? It’s just a simple matter of accessing them. Yeah, but europe? Why europe? What’s in europe? Many glorious things. But most importantly, my mother. She’s there trying to track me down. So you’re going to go meet your mother? No. I have no intention of seeing her. I just need her to know I’m alive. I’ve got a lot going on. I haven’t been entirely transparent with you. I think that’s putting it mildly. Ever since you left for russia, there’s just been one truth after the other surfacing. You know, I — I find out that you used to work for pikeman. No, I never worked for them directly. I-I was an independent contractor. I never worked for them directly. Okay, that’s semantics. I just sort of feel like each new layer that gets peeled back… …I get to see who you really are. Like maybe I never knew you. I love you. That’s all you’ll ever need to know. Is it? You’re not answering my question. Is that true? Yes. Unfortunately, it is true. I wasn’t at elq the night of the fire. Pikeman summoned me to a meeting in new york. They flew me to manhattan. I mean, that’s not much of a confession, because that’s what it says in dante’s note. What more do you want to know? I don’t know. What the hell was so urgent that you had to fly to new york city in the middle of the night? Pikeman was concerned about sonny. They still are. And they wanted to consult with me. Why do you lie to me?

My motivation in all of this is to stop funding marty’s lavish lifestyle. You have made that abundantly clear. 50 grand a month in alimony buys a lot of hummingbird cake. Yes, and I can only imagine what he spends wooing the floozy. Well, the gravy train has left the station. So, are you sure the judge can keep the deceptor sales frozen? Yes, absolutely. And while they are frozen, deception’s stock price is plummeting. The company will be basically worthless by the time lucy coe and company gets their day in court. Speaking of court, I want you to tell me how — how it went with jackson. Ooh, great recommendation. Good. Thank you. He did an impeccable job. Well, not only is he a very talented lawyer, he’s pretty irresistibly handsome to look at, too. Don’t you think? I hadn’t noticed. Come on! You had to have been laser-focused on bringing lucy coe down not to notice that. Ah, you are out for blood. I don’t need blood. It’s the piece of my family’s company that I want back from lucy. She has been using it to ruin our lives for years. And I won’t stop till I get it. Don’t you think the G.H. Softball team is doing suspiciously well? I mean, far be it for me to cast aspersions on the medical profession, but… could they be cheating? Uh…o-okay. Well, maybe. You know what? Maybe that wouldn’t surprise me at all, because those quartermaines have their grubby little paws in every aspect of the hospital. And the two biggest cheaters are tracy and her spy granddaughter, brook lynn. Do you know, she — she really did steal privileged and confidential information about the deceptor. Shame on her. Hey, is everything okay with you and spencer? Yeah, we’re fine. We’re better than ever. It’s just with curtis and school and the gallery, we barely see one another. We’re never alone. The last time was

the haunted star. This could be our only chance to feel this close again. And since then, it’s just been one thing after another. I just want it to be about me and spencer. But ever since greenland, the timing just hasn’t been right. Well, I’m sure it doesn’t help that he’s living with esme. No, it doesn’T. But I think spencer found a way around that. Alexis: So what do you need for ace? Spencer: Well, trina and I are going to go to new york for a little weekend getaway. That sounds fun. Yeah. Yeah, it will be. And I was just wondering if you wouldn’t mind keeping an eye on esme…and ace. I don’t understand this. Why would you insist on playing dead? You want your mother — wait, hold on a second. You want your mother to know that you’re alive, but you don’t want to see her. And in the meantime, ava is losing her mind, thinking that she killed you. Why are you so worried about ava? I have a problem with people feeling guilty that they killed people that clearly aren’t even dead.

[ Chuckles ] Ava’s not someone who’s prone to guilt. You don’t know ava like I do. On august 23rd, I went to visit drew in pentonville, and austin came in carrying his doctor bag, and I just assumed he was there for a medical reason. Okay, so then what makes you think he wasn’t? Because he was actually there to deliver information to his boss, the same information betty stole from sonny. Well, that’s a lot of speculation, even for you. We’re way past that, ava. Sonny came to me and drew for help. My helping sonny means I’m helping you. Why did you have to go to new york city? You know, clearly, you have a pikeman contact right here in port charles. Why didn’t you take the meeting here or use the phone? Pikeman didn’t want to risk me being seen with the contact. It was safer to take the meeting outside of the city. Plus, pikeman and the sonny deal, those are fraught subjects for us. I chose to lie about it.

[ Chuckles ] “F-fraught subjects”? That’s a little clinical, isn’t it? I’m talking about us, you know, our relationship. ‘Cause I thought that maybe we were being honest with each other.I’m being honest with you now. Yeah, because I’m making you. I mean, would you have ever told me about the pikeman connection on your own? What else are you keeping from me? Anna, I love you. Please don’t do this. Okay, you can’t keep saying that, ’cause it’s not actually an explanation. Just because you say you love me, I’m supposed to accept everything that’s going on. Do you know how it felt when dante told me that you just blatantly lied? I lied to you because I wanted to keep the relationship with pikeman separate from you. Okay, how’s that working out? I was actually delivering a message from you to sonny here at the pool when someone decided to take a shot at me, or sonny, or both of us. I should never have involved you. I should never have asked you to deliver that message. I am sorry. That was a mistake. How many more lies and mistakes have you got to tell me about? Have you lied about anything else?

Why do you hate lucy coe so much? Because she’s a cockroach that my family has been unable to get rid of since she sunk her claws into my brother. She has a crucial 1% of the voting rights of my family company. But all of that is about to come to an end, because once I have control of deception, lucy coe will no longer be an issue. You have such a distaste for business. I remember you saying that you hoped that you never had to utter the letters elq ever again. Huh. The things some people remember.

[ Chuckles ] Well, it’s not all about me. Now, don’t get me wrong. I do so enjoy putting the screws to lucy coe for all of the chaos she wreaked upon my family. Okay, now I’m really curious. What did she do besides marry your brother? She helped install valentin cassadine as ceo of elq. But there are other family dynamics at play now. Such as? Maybe it’s much ado about nothing. Maybe the lawsuit won’t hold up in court. I wish that was true, but I think it will. I really think this lawsuit has traction, and the person I’m blaming the most is brook lynn. How could she do it to us? How could she steal all the ideas that I had to come up and develop the deceptor? It’s so galling that they’re making it sound like it wasn’t my idea when it was, and, yes, with a few helpful hints from you. No, no, no, no. Lucy, stop. I-I’ve told you once. I’ve told you a thousand times. I have nothing to do with the deceptor. St– I’ve told you a thousand times, you have to stop. You were right there. You and I both know that you gave me that idea. Alright. Alright. Let’s just agree to disagree. It’s not how I remember it. Things are complicated enough as they are. There’s no reason to drag me into it. Fine, so then you’re forgetting our pillow talk. Okay. I came up with the product, but because you suggested it. I never would have come up with the idea for the deceptor if it wasn’t for you. Wait, is spencer moving out of laura’s condo and getting his own place? I wish. Spencer can’t get his own apartment yet. Well, have you talked about it? It’s come up before, but spencer can’t leave because of ace. And I totally get that. I mean, he — he still doesn’t trust esme. Oh, can you blame him? No, not at all. I get it. He — he needs to be there for his brother. And it actually makes me like him even more. How so? I love that he’s — he’s there for ace. He puts him first. It doesn’t bother you that the baby’s getting more attention than you? Well, I’ll be getting plenty of attention this weekend on our trip. What? Trip? Explain. Okay, well, it’s just a two-day thing. Um, he’s taking me to manhattan. Trina, traveling together? That’s a huge step. I know. It’ll be our first time alone together, completely away from everybody. Are you ready for that? I mean, it’s not like I’m rushing into it. We’re both adults, and we’re committed to each other. Oh, of course. Totally. It’s just, you know, sex takes things to a-a new level. And I-I just want to make sure that, you know, you’ve thought about it. I’ve done nothing but think about it.

[ Chuckles ] I have been keeping an eye on esme and ace, and she seems to be doing well with him and reasonably well as a receptionist. Aside from the obvious, why do you think she needs to be supervised? Well, we all know the new and improved esme, the one that surfaced after claiming that she had no memory of anything that happened before she washed up on the haunted star. But let’s not forget all of the awful things that she did before that. I won’T. But whether she’s faking her memory loss or not, you have to admit she’s good with ace. She is. But she’s attempted to run away before. And now with my grandmother and kevin out of the country looking for my father, I would just feel a lot better knowing that ace was safe. Oh, um… sorry. I forgot to get you this, um, payroll, uh, alexis. If anyone is unknown to me, it’s you. I treated you as a patient for months. I nursed you back to health, and you have this agenda, and you never even mentioned it.

[ Chuckles ] Austin, you didn’t save me out of the goodness of your heart. We both know that. Eh. As for my agenda, it’s simple. Cassadine estate is controlled by a trust. If the current owner of the estate, which happens to be me, disappears for six months, they’re presumed dead, and control of the estate automatically passes to the heir. Oh, who happens to be your son. My son. Right. Spencer. And you don’t like the way the cassadines have arranged things? I want to stop it. Yeah, I don’t blame you. And the only way to keep spencer from controlling all of my money and resources is if proof comes to light that I’m still alive. Anna, I know that I’ve given you reason to doubt me. But, no, I’m not keeping any secrets from you. I’m curious. Um, what pulled you into working for pikeman in the first place? Greed. And I was younger then. I had nothing to lose. But not now. Now I have far too much to lose. Anna, pikeman is very powerful, and they have a long memory, and it is just easier to cooperate and keep them as an ally than to have them as an enemy. Really? Is there any differentiation between those two things in a business like that? This is my problem. I want you as far away from it as possible. But how can I be? I mean, I’m right here. Ugh, god. Are you okay? No, I just — can we go up to the suite again? I just — you don’t want dinner? Mnh-mnh. We’ll get room service. Okay.

Weren’t you the least bit curious why the fbi arrested sonny? I was just relieved when the charges were dropped. But you never asked him the reason why? Nope. No, I did not. It was because he left false information for betty to find. And then betty took it to austin, who took it to his boss in pentonville, whoever that is. Which means austin and mason’s boss has ties to the fbi. Well, I don’t know why you’re telling me all this. It’s got nothing to do with me. That’s bull, ava, and you know it! Why don’t you let it rest?! Carly. You know what I think? I think you did something, and mason and austin found out about it. And they’re threatening to tell their boss, who could take it to the fbi. Austin: Okay, well, why not go to port charles after? Why — you know, when you — when you — when you’ve cleaned up all of your loose ends and you’ve taken care of your money, why not go then? Because my son spencer hates me. He has a pretty good reason to, from what I understand. The way ava’s explained it to me, this is not the first time that you’ve pretended to be dead, which is just, like, a weird habit with you. Who does that? Why? How could you do that to your own son? You don’t know what’s gone on in our family, and I don’t need to justify my actions to you. I know for a fact that once spencer gets control of the money and the cassadine estate, he isn’t likely to ever give it back to me. Right. Well, can you blame him? It’s an awful lot of money. More than you realize. And the last thing I want to do is open this up to a long, ugly court battle, because that’s exactly where it will end up. It’s better to stop the process before it starts. You don’t think much of your son, do you? You did not come all this way to hear about the dysfunctional quartermaines, did you? Well, it couldn’t be any worse than my family, let me tell you. Could be. Do you use the words greedy, unscrupulous, and vindictive to describe your family? Oh, that and more. I wouldn’t even know where to begin with our saga. Let’s just say the borgias have nothing on us. Okay, then we will call it a draw. We both have dysfunctional families. Can we just get back to the business at hand? Okay. So there’s more to it than getting your elq voting rights back? Thank you. The payroll wouldn’t have gone out in time, and I’d have a lot of staff members breathing down my neck. Uh, sorry I forgot it earlier, but if I get it to accounting now, I can, uh, make it before the deadline. Thank you. I appreciate it. And so will the staff when their direct deposits hit at the end of the week. Better get it to accounting. Because you’re my best friend and I love you, I just have to ask. You’re not feeling any pressure from spencer on this, correct? No, I’m not feeling any pressure from spencer. Okay, good. And you shouldn’t, ever. I’m just so happy and excited to be planning a weekend away, just the two of us. Oh, my god. Well, a weekend in new york? It’s going to be perfect. At first, he wanted to go to turks and caicos. The caribbean? Isn’t it like hurricane season or something? That’s what I said. So how did you guys settle for new york? Well, first we were going to stop in new york, and then we were going to turks and caicos. Yeah. But with school starting and I’m working at the gallery, I just didn’t want to be away for that long. So manhattan was a compromise. Well, that’s a good compromise. He wants to take me to a broadway show, and then we’re going to have dinner at this hot new restaurant called essence. Well, are you going to have time for any other activities? Oh, yeah. We’re staying at this hotel that has a heated pool on the rooftop. Mm. Well, I bet you’re more excited to see the hotel room than the heated pool. Well, this is going to be our first time together.

You know what? You were absolutely right. We should have gone to the grill. I am not staying in the same room with tracy quartermaine, who is trying to take everything I’ve worked so hard for. I am going to freshen up, and then I will meet you in the lobby. Wait. Lucy?

[ Mutters indistinctly ] Actually, I never do anything for just one reason. Yeah, I don’t see you as a checkers kind of gal. You’re more of a strategic 3-d chess player. Actually, backgammon is my game. Well, noted. But this is not a game. This is business. I learned a lot from my father. And maybe the most important lesson he taught me is that opportunities are not given. They’re made. And once they’re made, you have to take full advantage of them. Blair. Ms. Quartermaine. A pleasure. Mm-hmm. Hello, sweetheart. Let me be clear about something. What sonny is doing right now, he is doing for avery’s sake. I know that. Sonny would do anything for his family. Because the situation is fraught, I would like for avery to stay here with you and donna for a while. For how long? A week, maybe. I don’t know exactly. Is that acceptable to you? Of course. Avery can stay here as long as she needs. Thank you. I appreciate that. Ava? This is also for avery’s sake. Whatever you have going on with austin? He’s keeping information from you. Do not trust him. Nikolas: Austin, my son is a cassadine. Meaning? I don’t expect him to act any differently toward me than I would act toward someone who stands in my way. That’s why I have to make sure he never has power over me. That’s an interesting family dynamic.

[ Cellphone chimes ] My car has just arrived. So I can’t talk you into changing your mind? No. Thank you again for all your help. Where are you going? It’s time for a family reunion. Well, thank you, aunt alexis, not only for your legal advice, but also for agreeing to check in on esme and ace while trina and I are away. We’re family. That’s what we do for each other. Just a thought, but esme is family, too, so if you could trust her first, maybe she would be a little more trustworthy. That might be difficult. You have to admit, she cares about that little boy. Look, I feel the same way about ace that esme does. Good. You have that in common — love for that little boy. Let that be the thing that brings you together instead of the thing that tears you apart. Just a thought again. Let’s go. You and spencer have had your ups and downs. You trust him? Yeah, I do trust him. And I believe that this is right. It feels like the right thing to be doing. Oh, I’m so happy for you!

[ Laughs ] I’m so happy for spencer, too. That means a lot to me. I-I know you two have had your differences since you broke up with cam. Oh, yeah. You know, I give him grief, but I know he’s a good guy. I think so, too. And you are the best thing that’s ever happened to him. Don’t you forget it. Aww.

[ Both laugh ] Valentin: I’m just saying, if you’re not feeling well, let me go get you something. Oh, it’s okay. It’s just, I feel a little faint, kind of. I think maybe have a lie down, and then… order some room service. Oh, valentin. Ink? What the hell?

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Ridge: You’re not budging on this at all, are you?

Eric: Designing for the company I founded? No.

Ridge: [ Sighs ] Yes, the company you founded. How about we do what we talked about? Take some of your designs, put ’em in the couture line.

Eric: The couture line that you’re working on.

Ridge: The couture line that we’ve worked on over the years? Yeah. What is your problem?

Eric: Why do I have to keep telling you this, Ridge? I’m designing this line, and I’m doing it solo.

Ridge: Solo? With RJ!

Eric: Yes, with RJ. I’m doing it with RJ. [ Grunts ] He’s helping me. He’s, uh… he’s helping me put these designs on paper. That’s what’s bothering you, isn’t it? That your son is designing, but he’s designing with me and not with you.

RJ: Mom, are you saying that my designing with Granddad could hurt his relationship with Dad? I mean, I don’t want that, but I don’t– I don’t understand. Why would Dad be angry?

Brooke: No, he’s not angry. Just the opposite. He’s ecstatic that you’re designing. I meant that.

RJ: Yeah?

Brooke: He just wishes that the circumstances were different.

RJ: He wish– what– what does that even mean? Are you saying that Dad doesn’t want me designing with Granddad?

Hope: Are you sure you’re okay with this?

[ Hope exhales sharply ]

Hope: You– you get what this is, right?

Thomas: Yeah.

Hope: Yeah. Just, I… I– I know your commitment to me, and, Thomas, the way you’re looking at me, I just–

Thomas: Hey. You’re so beautiful.

[ Hope chuckles ]

Thomas: We’re good. No strings.

Hope: Okay. ‘Cause I… love what we’re doing together. I just… is it really going to be enough for you?

Brooke: I still can’t believe that you kept it from your father and me that you’re designing. That is incredible! We’re so proud.

RJ: Thank you, Mom. Yeah, I, um– I mean, I just wanted to keep it low-key ’cause Granddad wanted to keep it low-key, so.

Brooke: Okay. Well, I respect his wishes. It was still a shock, though.

RJ: Well, what’s life without a few surprises, am I right?

Brooke: [ Laughs ] That’s right. It’s a little more complicated for your father, but… you should’ve seen his face when I told him. He was, uh… he was amazed. I think it took a minute for him to believe it.

Carter: Um… believe what?

RJ: Hey, Carter. Um… well, I mean, you’re gonna find out sooner or later. Uh, my granddad is creating a new line, and I’m helping him with it.

Carter: What? I’m sorry. Wait, hold on, hold on. Is RJ Forrester actually getting involved in the family company? How, man? How so?

Eric: RJ and I are working together.

Ridge: I know. You’re mentoring him. Great.

Eric: No, it’s more than mentoring him. He’s doing this collection with me.

Ridge: This– yeah, your– your grand finale. Yes.

Eric: Yes. You should be thrilled that he’s designing.

Ridge: I am thrilled!

Eric: No, I think it bothers you. I think it really bothers you.

Ridge: Why do you keep saying that it bothers me? Nothing bothers me. No, I wanted this from the day he was born.

Eric: Yes, and now he’s finally doing it, and he’s designing with me, and not with you.

Carter: Seriously, RJ, congratulations, man. You couldn’t be learning from a better artist, a better designer than Eric.

RJ: Yeah. Believe me, I know how lucky I am.

[ Carter chuckles ]

Carter: Your dad must be losing his mind.

RJ: That sounds about right.

[ All chuckling ]

RJ: Yeah, I think, uh– well, I actually haven’t had the chance to talk to him yet, Mom.

Brooke: Right. I was the one who had the pleasure of sharing this amazing news, and we’re both so excited. And your dad? Oh, my gosh. He is so proud.

Carter: And Eric, he’s the one teaching you.

Brooke: Seems like you’re very passionate about the work that you’re doing together.

RJ: Oh, yeah. I mean– well, he is teaching me, and that’s been great. It’s been amazing. But… Mom, it’s even more than that. I mean, he called this line “our line.” I mean, you have no idea how that makes me feel.

Ridge: Here you go.

Eric: Well, thank you. Cheers.

Ridge: Cheers. Mmm.

Ridge: Perfect?

Eric: Very close.

[ Ridge chuckles ]

Ridge: What are you doing? What is all this? What do you– what do you want? Do you want– want drama in your life? Is that it?

Eric: There’s not drama. It’s just a– it’s a pretty simple story, really. With RJ… RJ was off in the world. Traveling around, not communicating with us very much, not coming home very often. He had no interest in the family business. And now he’s home, and all of a sudden, he’s designing away. With me, and– and not with you. It’s– it’s not drama. It’s a pretty simple story, really. And I wanna be sure that my son isn’t harboring some kind of resentment there. RJ’s a great kid.

Ridge: He is a great kid. I gotta say something, I’m sorry. You really think I have a problem with you teaching him? You? Absolutely not. You’re the best. You taught me. You’re– you’re the master. There’s no one better to teach him. I– I get that. You know what I don’t get? This. How it’s looking like you’re having a yard sale. This– what– what are you doing, putting yourself through all of this stress, all this anxiety, to do one more thing. Why? Let’s do it together as a family. You, me and RJ. We’ll do it together. Why wouldn’t we do that?

Eric: Because this is all mine.

Hope: Mmm. Yeah, I don’t– I don’t wanna talk anymore.

Thomas: Well, there’s a simple solution to that.

Hope: I do. I– I want this.

Thomas: So do I.

Hope: But I just– I just– um, I need to make sure that you– you can handle it.

Thomas: I can.

Hope: The agreement. You understand?

Carter: I’m really excited for you, RJ. I mean, you’re designing. This is huge. It’s a wonderful opportunity. You’re carrying on the family legacy.

RJ: Thank you, Carter. It means a lot.

Carter: But I have to be honest. I do have reservations. It’s the timing, man. To start a new line while Hope For The Future is firing on all cylinders, not to mention the continued success of Ridge’s couture line, it’s– it’s risky.

RJ: Yeah, but other than that…

Brooke: Ah, you do make some good points, though. You do. And I imagine Ridge feels the same way.

Carter: Yeah. But I do know the history of this place very well, and the first collection was a gamble, but it worked. We’re here today because Eric took a risk.

Ridge: I’m trying to figure this out, you know, where it’s coming from, this– this need to wanna do this all on your own.

Eric: Well, I know what it is. Uh, maybe it’s, uh, the, uh… it’s the ego of the artist.

Ridge: [ Chuckles ] The ego of the artist. I like that.

Eric: Yeah.

Ridge: Um, let me ask you something. Do you know what the artist needs? More than fabric, pencils, drawings? You know what that is? The press.

Eric: The press?

Ridge: Listen to this: “Three generations of Forresters meet. The third one was pulled from the shadows by the famous grandfather.” Huh? Story writes itself.

Eric: It’s a Pulitzer.

Ridge: It is.

Eric: Ah, it’s wonderful. It is. The only trouble with this is that you still– you still retain control of the line, and I’m working for you.

Ridge: What does that have to do with anything?

Eric: Ridge, I’ve been– I’ve been happy to stand in the wings quite a lot over the last few years and give you the limelight. Deserved. Well-deserved. Been very proud of you. But– but not this time.

Ridge: You really wanna do this?

Eric: Couldn’t be more certain.

Thomas: You. [ Chuckles ]

Hope: You.

Thomas: All this change in you.

Hope: Mmm. Well, I’m pretty surprised myself. I discovered something that I never even knew existed. And, uh… [ Whispers ] …I like it.

Brooke: So what are you saying, Carter? You support Eric’s decision to break off and create his own line, even though you know the risks better than anybody?

Carter: I’m not saying that, but I am too smart to count out the great Eric Forrester.

Ridge: And here I thought Mom was the stubborn one. Yeah, well, you live with someone long enough, you know–

Ridge: Yeah, good point. Yeah. Do– do you not feel relevant anymore? Is that it?

Eric: No, Ridge! No, that’s not it.

Ridge: What– what, you– you feeling your own mortality? No, Eric Forrester, you’re gonna outlive all of us.

Eric: Well, thank you for that, and thanks for acknowledging that I might have a few good years left in me.

Ridge: Sure. But I need you to acknowledge something too. There’s a new generation at Forrester.

Eric: New generation. That’s, uh… why, that’s you, isn’t it?

Ridge: No, it’s not me. No– yeah. Yes, it is me. And Steffy. And maybe RJ, and Thomas. Look at what we’re doing. Look at hope for the future. Show some pride in that. Be proud of that.

Eric: I’m so proud! I’m so proud of this company. Of course I’m proud of that. I’m just not ready to ride off into the sunset.

Ridge: No one’s asking you to do that. No, it’s the opposite. People want you to stay here and maybe mentor the next generation because their success is your success. How do you not see that?

Eric: All right, stop. Stop, Ridge, stop it. God! I need this. I want this, this– this new collection of mine. My– my– my legacy collection. I want that.

Ridge: Legacy collection. With all due respect, Dad… what if it doesn’t succeed?

Eric: It will.

Ridge: You don’t know that.

Eric: I do.

Ridge: You don’t! You don’t know that. We’ve never known that, never. But I do know something. I know that you, you can go into any bar anywhere in the world, and somebody will buy you a martini because of what you’ve done. You can go to any– any ballroom anywhere, and some sexy lady’s gonna ask to dance with you because of what you’ve done. Any yacht, any harbor, anywhere in the world, you can walk onto, and they will host you for as long as you want, because of what you’ve done. Not– not because of what you wanna do. You have plenty of accolades. What do you need?

Eric: I’m the founder of this company, Ridge. You don’t– you don’t get to tell me what to do.

Ridge: You’re right. Okay. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Eric: Warn me.

Ridge: You wanna do this with me? This fashion showdown, with me? Well… just know that I’m at the top of my game.

Eric: Hmm. That’s one big ego you got.

Ridge: I know. [Indistinct]

Eric: Yeah.

Ridge: Not my fault.

Eric: Hmm.

Ridge: I’m with Brooke. She inspires me. Everything I touch turns to gold. You sure you wanna do this?

Eric: Absolutely. Let’s settle this on the runway.

Ridge: Okay.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Abby: Hey, I’m glad you had time to see me.

Jack: Your message sounded a little frantic. I have some idea what this is about.

Abby: Well, I haven’t heard from my mom. I think she’s still in france, but I’m not sure. Have you heard from her?

Jack: No, not yet. As diane told you, we saw tucker alone. What that means regarding ashley, I don’t know.

Abby: Well, when I confronted him about what happened with my mom, I mean… he– he said, like, a bunch of business stuff. I don’t really even know. What the hell did he do with my mom?

Diane: He didn’t reveal much to us, either.

Jack: Look, I’ve tried reaching out to her to try to get some clarity on all of this. I haven’t had any luck. All I’ve gotten is voice mail.

Abby: My mom hasn’t returned my calls or my texts. So either she’s avoiding us, or– or she has no idea how worried we are. My mom and tucker just got married, and they’re on two separate continents! Uh, this can’t be good, right?

Tucker: Here you are.

Audra: Thank you.

Tucker: Well… that was a triumphant return, if I do say so myself.

Audra: Yeah, you know, five minutes ago, you were bitter and miserable. You know, I might prefer that, uh, to obnoxiously cocky.

Tucker: Five minutes ago. I guess time flies when you’re having fun, huh? And I didn’t hear any complaints from you. You poor thing. Having to spend your nights with kyle abbott. No wonder you came to me.

Audra: Like I said, obnoxiously cocky.

Tucker: Well. I appreciate the revival, nonetheless.

Audra: It wasn’t a revival, tucker. Okay? It was a one-time thing.

Tucker: Mm. No ulterior motives? No hidden agendas?

Audra: Are you questioning my heart of gold? Look, I told you. Look, I– I was worried about you, okay?

Tucker: You’re always thinking two steps ahead. You’re on a fishing expedition. You want to know more about what happened with me and ashley. Huh? Want to have some pillow talk about my marriage?

Daniel: So. You, uh, ready to jump into the school year?

Lucy: Ugh, dad, no. Shh, no, no school talk. I’m still in my summer zen.

Daniel: Mm. Sorry. Fair enough. I mean, I’ll take every minute that I can get with you. It was a real treat, having you come here to finish out the summer. Speaking of treats, I even had sharon stock up on all your favorite treats at the coffee house.

Lucy: Sharon’s the best, and I mean, you’re pretty cool too.

[ Daniel chuckling ]

Daniel: Let’s not get crazy here. Look, I don’t mean to mess with your zen, but, um… do you know that your mom was thinking about not going back to portugal?

Lucy: Yeah. Yeah. She told me.

Daniel: Would be a big change for both of you. How are you feeling about it?

Lucy: You know, I really wanted it to work out, moving to portugal. I– I think mom really needed the change. So did I, honestly.

Daniel: You both deserve some peace after living with me. I wasn’t exactly my best self.

Lucy: But you’re different now. You’re back to being your old, good self.

Daniel: Handsome and brilliant.

Lucy: Yeah, that. I mean, portugal was great at first. And school was fine and mom had met chris. They were great.

Daniel: Chris…

Lucy: Um, until they weren’T. Mom wouldn’t tell me everything, but seems like he turned out to be quite the jerk.

Daniel: As big a jerk as me?

Lucy: Eh. Kind of a toss-up. I mean, I guess it all kinda just depends on what mom wants. I’d be okay with coming back to the states, though. Uh, more than okay, actually. Do you want me and mom to come home?

Phyllis: Thank you for meeting with me. You know, I just wanted to officially give you thanks for stepping in at the last minute and taking over my case.

Heather: I suppose I should also thank you because you have not once brought up my and daniel’s relationship during this entire lunch, and I imagine that, uh, was probably difficult for you.

Phyllis: Wha– why?

Heather: Because you had to actually pretend this lunch was about catching up.

Phyllis: Uh, it is! And about thanking you. I mean, what else would it be about?

Heather: Nudging me and daniel back together.

Phyllis: Oh, heather, no, no, no. Listen. Listen. I’ve learned my lesson to interfere with daniel’s love life. I’ve learned my lesson, okay? I want you two to be happy. And I want you two to be solid emotionally, for lucy’s sake.

Heather: We are. We’ve gotten there.

Phyllis: Good and like I said, I have learned my lesson. I’m not gonna be the one responsible for breaking up daniel and lily.

Heather: Yeah, I’m– I’m curious. How, um… how serious do you think that relationship actually is? So I didn’t think I needed swiffer,

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Phyllis: I have mixed feelings about daniel and lily’s relationship. That’s all. It has nothing to do with you.

Heather: Sure.

Phyllis: It doesn’t, really. And daniel says he’s happy. I mean, he seems happy.

Heather: He does.

Phyllis: It’s just that lily and daniel have horrible track records.

Heather: No, I mean, I can’t really throw stones. My history isn’t perfect. Things with me and daniel did not end well.

Phyllis: Yeah, but that was daniel’s fault. I mean, you know I love my son, but that was completely on him. It had nothing to do with you.

Heather: No, no. We– we both could have done things differently.

Phyllis: Well, you’re being very kind, but my son screwed up. He did. He’s been working on himself to be in a better place emotionally and be more stable.

Heather: It’s good to see him happy again. I mean, he… he didn’t smile for so long, he wouldn’t talk, let me in, but, um… he’s not in that place anymore.

Phyllis: No. He’s not. Hey, heather, I just want to ask you. I mean, now that my son is in a better place and he’s more stable and he’s willing to let somebody in… I mean, just– would you want that somebody to be you?

Daniel: Did you seriously just ask me if I want you around? Because the answer is yes. I mean, it’s always gonna be yes, obviously. In– in the states, in this state. I want you to be as close to me as possible.

Lucy: Me too, dad. But, um, what about mom?

Daniel: Well, I hope that heather can find happiness wherever she can find it. And if that happens to be genoa city, even better.

Lucy: You know, I actually think mom really likes it here. I was really little when we left genoa city, but… it’s always really felt like home here.

Daniel: Listen, kid, I gotta be really clear with you about something, um, and I feel like you’re old enough that we can have a frank conversation about it.

Lucy: Obviously.

Daniel: Say you and your mom were to move back to the states, or you know, genoa city. Doesn’t mean that the two of us are gonna get back together and be a couple.

Lucy: Mm. Wait. I’m sorry, did– did– did mom say something to you about this? I’m kind of feeling like a parent conspiracy thing here. Did she say something about me wanting you guys to get back together?

Daniel: She may have mentioned it.

Lucy: Okay, embarrassing.

Daniel: No, no. Hey. Hey, not at all. Look, I– I get it. I can see why you might feel like you– you want to have that again, for the three of us to be a family again.

Lucy: Well, I mean, it makes sense, right? You and mom split up because you were in a bad place, and you’re not in that place anymore, so…

Daniel: So– okay. Look. I know it’s hard, but… sometimes things don’t work out and you can’t go back.

Lucy: So, I guess this means things are pretty serious between you and lily. You guys are really happy together, aren’t you?

Jack: I don’t want to jump to any conclusions, but I honestly don’t know what to make of the situation between ashley and tucker. Why he is in town and she is not.

Abby: Well, I reached out to the concierge in her apartment building in paris, and I mean, my mind has gone to some pretty dark places. But he seems to think that she’s just on some day trip to the country.

Jack: I hate to say this, sweetheart. That is pretty classic ashley. Something goes wrong, she tends to isolate.

Abby: Okay, but what makes me nervous is that she hasn’t reached out to any one of us.

Diane: You know, it’s really strange. The two of them seemed so content before they left.

Jack: Oh, he had to do something awful to turn this around so quickly, to push her away. Son of a bitch.

Diane: But why would he come back here without her, though? I mean, why go back to the place where you fell in love again? Isn’t there somewhere else he could go to lick his wounds?

Jack: Oh, I suspect he has something in the works.

Abby: When I talked to tucker, I mean, he made it seem like my mom hurt him, not the other way around.

Jack: Well, that’s a heck of a lot more than we got. When I asked him what happened, he said, “ask your sister,” which of course, we can’t do because she’s avoiding us.

Diane: Well, wait a minute. What if tucker is telling the truth and whatever happened between the two of them was instigated by ashley?

Abby: Wait, you think this is on my mom?

Diane: No, no, no. I’m not saying it was anything malicious. But what if ashley just realized that she made a horrible mistake marrying tucker?

Abby: But when I spoke to tucker, I mean, he was pretty frustrated with me for blaming him. He seemed hurt.

Jack: If he’s frustrated and angry, he could very well decide to retaliate against us.

[ Abby sighing ]

Audra: You know, I just want to know your plans going forward.

Tucker: Why?

Audra: Just curious. Um, your world appears to have shifted.

Tucker: Mm.

Audra: Feels off-kilter.

Tucker: Mm, the only constant is change.

Audra: You know, I’m assuming, um, that things really blew up with ashley. You know, especially for you to end up here. You know, you were quite the faithful husband, and, um, but since you don’t want to talk about it, you know, I– I just, I’ll assume that whatever happened was pretty extreme. You know, I– I can imagine, you know, if things did go wrong, that, um– that you would be pretty devastated. I mean, you loved her, you’d do anything for her–

Tucker: Yeah, what’s your point?

Audra: That you’re probably feeling pretty vindictive. Maybe you’d even go after jabot.

Tucker: Ah. And what if I did, pray tell? What’s it to you?

Audra: I just want to know your mindset, that’s all.

Tucker: Uh-huh.

Audra: Like, if you’re playing a new game.

Tucker: But what’s your angle? Don’t tell me this is just about protecting your new boyfriend’s family company. There’s something in it for you, right? What is it?

For your most brilliant smile,

Audra: I– I’m just surprised by your– your turnaround, is all. You know, I– I– I thought ashley was the one, you know, your one true love and destiny. She made you a better man. And now, you just seem to have reverted to form. Yeah, I’m just– I’m fascinated and curious.

Tucker: No, you’re not. You’re doing recon work. You’re covering your bases. Why? What’s going on at newman? Shakeup?

Audra: Well–

Tucker: Exploring your options?

Audra: There are always moving parts at a company that size.

Tucker: And? Okay. Yeah. If you would be willing to share a little bit, I might be willing to share my plans with you.

[ Audra chuckling ]

Audra: So you– you– you do have plans?

Tucker: Well, let’s just say, um… hypothetically, that I did. Would you entertain the idea of working with me again? We could give each other what we want. I mean, look at us, right? There’s something. Always pulled back together.

Audra: Well, I, uh, I would need to trust you a lot more than I do right now.

Tucker: Really? After everything we’ve been through?

Audra: Things have changed.

Tucker: We still have something though, don’t we? Hm? I’ve always been straightforward with you, right? And unfortunately, even to the point where I genuinely hurt you. And I regret that. But that’s one thing that we’ve always counted on with each other, right? Honest with each other, sometimes painfully so.

Audra: Fine. I’ll entertain the possibility. But I want to know your agenda first.

Billy: What’s going on? Another abbott family meeting?

Traci: Does this conversation pertained to jabot?

Jack: No, this is about ashley. Something is going on between her and tucker. They have split up.

Traci: What? Already? Jack, how do you know this?

Jack: Well, they left on their honeymoon together in paris and he’s back in town, and she is purposely out of touch.

Traci: Where is our sister?

Jack: As best we know, still in france.

Abby: But we haven’t been able to get a hold of her. Has she reached out to either one of you?

Billy: No. Not me.

Traci: Yeah, me either. I just assumed that they were having a really good time. Oh, good lord, what has tucker done now?

Jack: Well, that is the question.

Billy: Well, he was on guard when we saw him earlier, there’s no doubt about that.

Diane: Yeah, he wasn’t even trying to be charming, so we know that something’s wrong.

Traci: Is there any other evidence that would sort of shed light on what’s really happening, then?

Jack: No, details are pretty scarce, but I think we all need to be on alert.

Traci: I hate that ashley isn’t reaching out to any of us herself, but isn’t it possible that we’re jumping to the worst conclusion?

Jack: With tucker mccall, I think it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

[ Abby sighing ]

Phyllis: I care about you and daniel. And lucy. And I know when you have something special, it’s hard to just put that in the past, you know? I don’t want anyone to get hurt.

Heather: Thank you. And I appreciate the lunch invitation and that you’re concerned for daniel’s well-being, as well as mine.

Phyllis: Of course, of course.

Heather: But you also need to accept that daniel will choose his own path and it may or– or may not be something that you like.

Phyllis: I don’t want you or daniel to give up on true happiness because you’re afraid. I want to help you.

Heather: See, this is what I’m talking about, phyllis. Even though you may think you’re– you’re fixing something, you– you could be making matters worse with daniel and I can’t imagine you’d want that, not after everything that happened.

Phyllis: I know I have made mistakes in the past with my children. I just want them to be happy. I just care about their well-being and I will never jeopardize that.

Heather: Okay. Um, in that case, I– I urge you to stay out of daniel’s private life and– and I– I ask you to also stay out of mine. It was good to see you, phyllis. Thank you.

Daniel: I am very happy. I am. I can’t speak for lily, but I think she is too.

Lucy: Yeah. She seems to really like you and you guys seem great together.

Daniel: Well, we have history.

Lucy: Yeah, that’s an understatement.

Daniel: You know, this time around though, it just feels new, and special.

Lucy: That makes sense. But if you weren’t together, do you think there might be a chance for you and mom?

Daniel: Yeah, I think, kiddo, that there’s already been too much damage done. I’m just happy that your mother and I can have a civil conversation about you, or about anything else, for that matter. And I am more than thrilled that you seem to have forgiven me.

Lucy: I have, dad. We’re good.

Daniel: Yeah, I think so too. But you know, your mother, she might not feel that.

Lucy: No, I– I don’t think so. I think she knows that you’re doing better now.

Daniel: Yes, but that doesn’t change the past. It doesn’t change anything that I’ve done. You can forgive someone, and you know, still have a real problem trusting them, after they’ve let you down.

Lucy: Dad, but I trust you.

Daniel: I know, and I am so grateful for that. I really am. But your mother, you know, she saw a worse side of me. She was shielding you from me and she would probably always be wondering if that was ever gonna happen again.

Lucy: It– it wouldn’t, dad. You’re so much stronger and more balanced now and– and mom knows that.

Daniel: Yes. I like to think I am. You know, I have to remind myself that every day, I– I have to look at what I did and who I became and never go back to that.

Lucy: And– and I think mom knows that. She might be able to forgive you, just like I have.

Daniel: You may be right.

Lucy: Given all of that and just speaking hypothetically, if you and lily weren’t together, if that wasn’t a thing–

Daniel: But that is a thing.

Lucy: I know, I know, I– I’m just asking. Wouldn’t there be a chance? Just even if it’s a little one, for you and mom.

Daniel: Maybe. My heart failure diagnosis changed my priorities.

Daniel: Oh, hey, hey, hey. Hang on a second there. You know, I– I kind of feel like this conversation has gotten away from me a little bit and just want to check in with you and make sure that you’re not planning anything, that there’s no schemes going on here?

Lucy: Yeah, dad, I’m gonna go all parent trap on you two, take you and lily out camping and then get us all stranded. It’s gonna be great!

Daniel: No, no, no, that’s not funny. I’m serious. Listen to me. Leave it alone. Do not go pressuring your mother into believing something that isn’t true.

Lucy: Yeah, like push her to fall in love with you again? You can’t make someone love anyone.

Daniel: Okay. Good, good. So, we’re good here.

Lucy: And you can’t make them fall out of love, either.

Traci: Jack, are you that sure tucker’s a threat?

Jack: Tucker has a history of lashing out when he feels wronged.

Diane: Not to mention that before he came back to town, he pressured me into trying to find out anything I could about jabot’s financial stability.

Traci: Which, as I recall, you seriously considered doing for him.

Diane: All I’m saying is that he had his eye on the company. Maybe he’s still after it, with or without ashley.

Traci: Okay, if ashley left him– if. I don’t understand why he would still be interested in the company. I mean, as I remember, they were going to take control of the company so that he and ashley could run it together.

Jack: Whatever move he makes at this point is going to be a direct blow against me.

Abby: But why would he go after you?

Jack: Whatever fallout there was between tucker and ashley was likely because of her loyalty to this family. More specifically, her connection to me.

Billy: If you don’t mind, I have an idea. And if it works, it could solve everything.

Tucker: Unfortunately, ashley and I just have different priorities. And as it turns out, irreconcilable differences.

Audra: That sounds like divorce talk.

Tucker: Yeah, uh, don’t– that’s all I want to say about her.

Audra: Fine.

Tucker: I’m gonna do what I should have done when I first moved back to town, what I originally planned.

Audra: Um, you were gonna target jabot?

Tucker: I’m gonna do more than target it. I’m gonna take the sucker. Right from the abbotts. In its entirety.

Audra: Bold.

Tucker: Does it worry you?

Audra: Why would it?

Tucker: Your relationship with kyle?

Audra: Hm. You know, we– we’re having so much fun together. Even, you know, if we now have to keep our– our affair a secret.

Tucker: You do? Is that some kind of new audra game?

Audra: It’s an edict from nikki newman.

Tucker: Oh, did she drop the hammer on you? She doesn’t like the idea of you sleeping with her granddaughter’s husband?

Audra: Anyway, um, if we were to resume our connection, I’d want something in return.

Tucker: Yeah, there it is. There’s that old black magic. Make a deal with the devil.

Audra: Okay. You taught me everything I know. Well, you know, almost everything.

Tucker: Okay, what you got in mind?

Daniel: Hey, heather.

Heather: Hi.

Lucy: Um, I’m glad you’re here. How did the lunch with phyllis go?

Heather: Fine. But I have some news. Unfortunately, we need to head back to lisbon sooner than we planned.

Lucy: Ugh, why?

Heather: I– I got a call from my firm on the way over here.

Lucy: I thought they closed down the offices.

Heather: They did, but, uh, they’re calling a special meeting for an upcoming trial. I need to be back for that.

Daniel: Oh, that’s too bad.

Heather: I also need to speak with them about my plans, which may involve returning to live in the states.

Lucy: Yeah, um, dad and i were actually just talking about that, and I’d really be on board, if that’s something you want to do.

Heather: Well, we’re gonna do what’s best for both of us, and we’ll need to figure out school for you, if we do plan to come back. So, there is a lot to decide and to discuss.

Lucy: Yeah.

Daniel: You know, I’m sorry that happened so soon.

Heather: Me too. But maybe it’s for the best.

Daniel: You sure there wasn’t anything more to it?

Heather: What do you mean?

Daniel: I mean phyllis. My mother. Did she do something? Feeling sluggish or weighed down?

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

What can you do

with sensitive skin?

Heather: No, no, no, no. Phyllis and I had a perfectly pleasant lunch.

Daniel: Mm-hmm? She didn’t, uh, step out of line? Try and run your life or make you do anything?

Heather: Your mom loves you very much.

Daniel: Oh, boy. Yeah, now you’re really making me nervous.

Lucy: So sad we have to leave so soon. I really enjoy just being here with you.

Daniel: Yeah, same.

Heather: Well, guys, nothing is set in stone yet, okay? We may be back before you know it. There’s just A… there’s a lot to consider.

Daniel: It’ll get sorted.

Heather: Okay. Let’s get organized, and, uh, I’ll check in with you later. We’ll come see you again before we leave.

Daniel: You better.

Lucy: Okay. Bye, dad.

Daniel: Bye, luce. Bye.

Billy: I believe I’m the best bet in finding out what tucker’s up to.

Jack: So what is the strategy?

Billy: We allow him to believe that our relationship has only gotten worse.

Diane: I’m not sure he’ll buy that.

Jack: No, it’s true. He did out you to me right before they left for paris.

Billy: He did. He waltzed in here and dropped a big bomb, that I’m better suited to run jabot than you.

Traci: What the hell, billy?

Billy: Don’t worry, traci. It was all part of the plan to derail ashley and tucker.

Traci: Oh, honestly, this family.

Billy: When ashley and tucker abandoned the plan to use me to go after jabot, he threw me under the bus. Or at least, that’s what he thought.

Jack: Oh, that was definitely a parting shot, to make me believe that you were a traitor.

Billy: Exactly, and what would exasperate our conflict more than me trying to oust you from the company, jack? Okay, think about this. This is the ammunition that we need.

Abby: To do what?

Billy: To make tucker believe that our relationship is in shambles and all of this is gone to hell.

Jack: It very nearly did. Look, I see the logic, I’m just not sure this is a good idea.

Audra: But you were right, you know. Things have grown increasingly precarious at newman while you were away.

Tucker: Yeah, what’s the latest?

Audra: Yeah, well, victor’s made one power move after another. You know, he broke up the nick, sharon and adam venture. Adam is out completely. And– and he’s, uh, allowed sharon to take back her company, free of charge.

Tucker: And what about nick? Where does he stand?

Audra: Uh, well, he’s gonna go with sharon and help her rebuild kirsten incorporated. Totally separating himself from the newmans.

Tucker: And victor does not like familial separation.

Audra: And check this out, he’s also promoted, uh, nikki newman. She’s gonna be my new boss. Taking over in newman media.

Tucker: And thus, demoting you.

Audra: Yeah, I’m not thrilled about it, but… you know, I’m thankful that I still have a job. And mrs. Newman has chosen to assert her authority quite quickly, though.

Tucker: By blowing up you and kyle?

Audra: Yeah. You know, she’s, uh, made it very clear that I will continue on a trial basis. She doesn’t trust me.

Tucker: Nor should she.

Audra: Mm. You know, all of this means that I need a–

Tucker: You need a backup plan.

Audra: Yes, exactly. You know, some place where I can work with– with someone to whom I don’t have to continually prove myself.

Tucker: Could that someone be me?

[ Audra giggling ] Could that somewhere be jabot? I take it back. You’re not just two steps ahead, you’re ten.

Audra: If you actually go through with it and manage to get a hold of it, I’m all yours. White 80…! White 80…!

Lily: Hey. I got your text. It sounded urgent. I’ve gotta tell you, I did not expect this when you told me you wanted to see me, but I’m glad you had the urge. Are you okay?

Daniel: Yeah. Yeah, just– I want to be totally honest with you about something.

Lily: Um… okay.

Daniel: It’s just like, I just want to be completely transparent on this. Um… I get the feeling that my mother is trying to push me and heather back together.

Lily: Well, did something happen to make you think that?

Daniel: No, I just get the feeling that my mom was up to something, so I confronted her about it. She said it was nothing. Then she had lunch with heather, now heather and lucy, they’re leaving for lisbon in, like, a day or two.

Lily: I thought they were staying until the end of the month.

Daniel: Well, she said it was work, but… just seems like too much of a coincidence.

Lily: Well, did she say anything specific that she discussed with phyllis?

Daniel: No. No. See, I got the feeling that there was more that she wasn’t telling me. I don’t know. Maybe I’m reading too much into it, you know, babe? I’m just, I’m bummed. I was really looking forward to spending that time with lucy.

Lily: I’m sorry. And look, I know that your mom likes to meddle, but I think there might be another possible scenario here.

Billy: You don’t need to worry about me. I can handle tucker.

Traci: No, I– I think I agree with jack. You’re gonna have to proceed with caution, and I’m not sure more deception’s what’s needed here.

Jack: If tucker is indeed on a mission to cause more trouble for this family without ashley by his side to hold him back, he will pull out all the stops.

Diane: And he’ll be looking for any angle, for anything that gets in his way.

Billy: There’s no doubt about that, but I can sidestep him. Let’s just hope that I have a few cards up my sleeve as well.

Jack: Tucker just saw the three of us together. You, me, and diane. By all appearances, we were fine.

Billy: Yeah, that’s not a problem. I can handle that.

Abby: But billy, why would you want to? Every person that plays with tucker ends up getting burned, including my mom.

Jack: I just don’t like the idea of your getting deeply involved in this anymore, look, you’re right. We don’t know that he’s planning anything, but my gut tells me that he is, but if he does have a plan, he is going to do everything he can to stop any defensive move we make.

Billy: Well, that is for sure, jack. But I’m telling you, I can handle it. Rsv is in for a surprise.

Lily: I don’t know if phyllis is the reason that heather wants to leave town.

Daniel: Then what could it be, then?

Lily: I think she might still have feelings for you.

Daniel: Why would you think that?

Lily: It’s just a sense I have. I mean, she’s really awkward around me, and especially when I see her after she’s run into you.

Daniel: Yeah, I just– I don’t– I don’t think that heather could ever have those kinds of feelings for me, especially after what I put her and lucy through.

Lily: Yeah, but wounds can heal. And I think now, she sees you as the man she’s always wanted you to be.

Daniel: I just don’t think it’s possible.

Lily: Okay, well, look. It means she also could just have to get back to work, so.

Daniel: Yeah. You’re probably right. I don’t know, I guess, you know, even if it were true, it wouldn’t really matter because you and I are together now.

Lily: We are.

Daniel: Hm.

Lily: I want you to know, though, that I would understand if maybe you’re feeling conflicted? I mean, it’s not like you two broke up because you just fell out of love. I mean, you were in a bad place. And you’re not there anymore and… heather could very well want you back in her life.

Daniel: Yeah, but would it bother you, you know, if it were true? That she did? I mean, you’re not worried, are you?

Tucker: Well, I’m definitely intrigued by the idea of working side by side again.

Audra: Good.

Tucker: Ah. We’re back, baby.

[ Tucker chuckling ] I scratch your back, you scratch mine.

Audra: In a manner of speaking.

Tucker: No, it’ll be fun to work together again. And your relationship with kyle? That could prove useful. We should discuss later.

Audra: Yeah, um… so we’re done here? This is you kicking me out?

Tucker: In a manner of speaking, yeah. You got your job at newman and I got work to do.

Audra: All right.

Tucker: We’ll reconvene later.

Audra: Yeah.

Tucker: Oh, wait a minute, wait a minute. Hey. I’m glad we’re back in action.

Audra: Oh.

Tucker: And I hope you are, too.

Traci: I still think we need to take things one step at a time. Can we just wait to hear from ashley, so we can get some context as to what’s really going on?

Abby: Okay, look. I’m gonna keep trying my mom. I’ll let you know if I hear anything.

Jack: Please do.

Traci: And the two of you, be smart. Do not let tucker come between you. He’s not worth it.

Jack: Thanks, sis.

Traci: Yeah.

Diane: Hm.

Billy: Diane, you know tucker. You know how fast he moves when he’s on a mission. Do you really believe that we should sit on this?

Diane: I think billy has a good point. What’s the harm in letting him see what he can get out of tucker?

Billy: There you go, jack. You should listen to your wife.

Jack: Okay. Okay, suss him out. But be careful, please.

Billy: Absolutely. I’ll talk soon.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Demarco: Yes,mm, no, I don’t want to believe what you’re saying. Gladys would never do anything to physically hurt me, cody. Believe me, sasha, okay? Gladys and montague knew each other before he was your doctor. She used him to help send you to ferncliff. What? Yes. No, no. That — you’re wrong, cody. You’ve always been wrong about gladys. It can’t be true. I need you to believe this, okay? I need — gladys would never drug me. Shh, shh. Hold on. Hold on. Someone’s coming.

[ Vehicle approaches ]

[ Sighs ] I always look forward to our visits, carly, but something tells me this is about more than just catching up. There is a situation, and I could use your help. Never a good thing when you’re summoned to the warden’s office. Warden garten: Come in. Good morning, warden. Per your request, I have cyrus renault. Thank you for coming, mr. Renault. That will be all. I’ll buzz you when I’m ready for you to escort mr. Renault back to his cell. How can I help you, warden? Drop the pious act, padre. I’ve had enough of your help. You hung me out to dry. And now you’re going to pay for it. Uh, excuse me. Hey, dex. What can I do for you?

[ Cellphone rings ] Oh, sorry. Oh, no, that’s okay. Take it. Hey, what’s going on? Hey, I was just wondering if you’re still going to help me move into the dorm. Of course. I’ve just got some work to finish up for sonny. Should be done pretty soon, and I’ll be over. Okay, great. I can get back to my book. Everyone’s talking about how great it is. Bye. Sorry about that. I have a message for you from sonny. I have done everything that you have asked me to do. I don’t know. Will you please stop asking me that? I have no idea.

[ Knock on door, door opens ] Hang up that phone. Hello, ava. Nice to see you, too. Come on in. Um, I have to call you back. What? What’s happening? Well, you’re not answering my calls, so I had to come and find you in person. I am done with your cousin threatening me and my family. If he doesn’t honor our deal and return nikolas’ body, I will go to sonny, and I will tell him everything that you and your cousin have done.

[ Music playing in earbuds ] Hello, hello.

[ Music continues playing

in earbuds ] Trina. Trina! Aah! Okay, if I tell you to go, take the back exit of the cabin. You run. Okay? There’s a trail right outside the door. You take it all the way up to the road. I’ll meet you there with the car. You okay? Yeah. Alright.

[ Chuckles ]

You okay? Yeah. You alright?

[ Music playing in earbuds ] Yeah. Um, I’m sorry. No, it’s okay. Here. I am so sorry. No, you’re good. You’re good. Here. I probably shouldn’t be listening to music while I work. Yeah, maybe not. Hey! So this is where you’re keeping your dove at, huh? Yeah, he’s cute. I like him there. Yeah. Um, thank you for catching me. Sure. That was embarrassing, but it was romantic, mr. Cassadine. Well, I’ll always be there to catch you, ms. Robinson. Seems like you’re there for me when it’s important. No, it seems like I’m always the one who is, uh, getting you into dangerous situations that you probably shouldn’t be in, like in greenland.

[ Both chuckle ] Well, that’s okay. I wouldn’t change it. You sure about that? Positive. Well, you’ve saved me a few times, as well. You guys scared me half to death. What’s dante doing here? He’s here because he cares, and he can help. Dante: I’m gonna try to help. Okay. Alright. Well, might as well come in. Sasha, hey, it’s okay. Friends. Oh. Sam. Dante. Hi. It’s, uh — it’s good to see you both. It’s good to see you. It’s nice to see you out of ferncliff. You look — you look like you’re doing better. Thanks to cody. Please, don’t go talk to sonny. I mean, if you — if you did that, think about what would happen, rationally, right? Just nothing good, right? So let’s — let’s — okay. [ Sighs ] T-tell me what happened. Your lollipop lickin’ cousin, that’s what happened. What did mason do now? He came to my gallery, and he accused me of going to sonny because his — his plan fell through. Obviously, sonny saw right through it. Mason blamed me for that, and he started threatening me, and I’m not going to take it anymore! I have done everything that’s been asked of me, and I still have no idea when this nightmare is going to end. Oh, it’ll end soon. Mason will come through, one way or another. One way or another? What the hell does that mean? Sonny wanted me to tell you he’s going to be unreachable for a few hours, but didn’t want you to worry. Well, did sonny tell you what he was doing? Uh, he’s with carly. They’re visiting drew at pentonville. Thank you for delivering the message. I’m just doing my job, ms. Reeves. I told you, please, call me nina. Remember, we’re both on team sonny? Of course. Dex, uh, sorry. Did sonny tell you why he and carly were visiting drew? That’s the only message he gave me to deliver. He can be stingy with details.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. Don’t I know it. Can I get you a cup of coffee to go? Oh, no, thank you. I, uh, got to run. Told joss I’d help her with something this morning, so… nina: No, martin, I haven’t changed my mind. I want you to go all out and expose drew and carly for engaging in insider trading. Just make sure to keep my name out of it. Sonny was arrested by the fbi a few days ago. I heard that. I heard. Word travels fast in pentonville. Congratulations. Clearly, the — the charges didn’t stick. Charges were dropped. Lack of evidence. I was basically trying to smoke out the enemy, so I gave them false information. But the false information got passed along to the fbi. Here’s the problem. I don’t know who the enemy is, but I’m pretty sure it’s somebody in pentonville. The idea was to entrap sonny and send him up the river, not to watch him walk. You had one job. One. You were supposed to provide me with accurate information on sonny and his deal with pikeman so that I had something substantial to turn over to the feds. They went out on a limb and set up a big sting operation that yielded nothing. Absolutely nothing. Corinthos is a free man, and it’s your fault. Are you taking a tone with me? You don’t think this whole thing pisses me off? And have you forgotten how you became warden? Because without me, you’d still be back in the corrections office pushing paper and answering e-mails. Nobody’s happy about this, especially me. But it’s my name that’s tarnished.

[ Groans ] Which I will clear.

[ Sighs ] I am but a humble servant of the almighty. I believed we had the goods, and I delivered what the lord placed into my welcoming hands. My people — your people? Are you referring to that useless mason gatlin? I should have never intervened for him. Mason has performed admirably for us in the past, even though I realize now his usefulness may be coming to an end, as it must for all god’s emissaries.


[ Chuckles ] Let me help. I think I got it. Okay. Maybe with the heavier stuff, yes. Josslyn: It’s nice and easy for you. Hey — hey, joss. Oh, hi, adam. Looks like we’re, uh, neighbors again. Oh, are you in the same room as last year? Yeah, I was — I was moving back in when I noticed your stuff was kind of blocking the hall. Oh. D-do you, um — you need help? Um, no, no, actually, I-I have some help already. How’s it going? I’m good, bud. How about you? N-not bad. I, um — I’m just gearing up for another semester of pre-med. You’re not a student here, are you? What brought you by the gallery this morning? I got your text. Oh. And I missed you. Oh. Right. Well, um, earlier this morning, I was at home, and curtis and i were having a fun, little disaster… oh. …Trying to set up the smart home gaming system that marshall bought. Well, that sounds absolutely horrid. I hate setting up new tech. Isn’t that what outsourcing is for? Uh, yes, that’s nice for folks who have a team of outsourcers. But unfortunately for us, we don’t, and, uh, marshall just left it in our laps. But, luckily, being a former P.I., Curtis is a wizard at stuff like that, so… uh, so what are you doing here? And shouldn’t you be home helping out curtis? Yeah. I-I got an urgent call from paloma’s people about her current art display here. Apparently, ava left out a detail about this fall’s show, and I guess it slipped through the cracks, which is surprising to me. That’s not like her. She’s usually particular about details. I think she’s been a little distracted lately. Ah. I can only imagine why. My ex-stepmother is, uh, always up to something. Hey, say what you want about ava, but she is extremely efficient and organized. It’s highly unusual for her to drop the ball at the gallery. It — it’s nothing. It — I just — I-I-I didn’t mean anything by it. Oh, no, I don’t think so, austin. First you tell me mason will come through one way or another, and then you tell me to forget that you said it? Are you double crossing me, austin? If you’re double crossing me, that would be a very, very big mistake. No, no, ava, I-I — I’m — I’m — I’m not double crossing you. Good, ’cause you more than anybody, you know what I’m capable of. When I’m pushed and I’m provoked, I’ll do almost anything, especially for avery. Can I be honest with you about — about something? For your sake, you ought to be. I’m so sorry. I am. I’m — I am truly sorry that — that you’re here in this situation. I should — I should never have let mason put you here. And if I could go back in time and do everything over again, I would. I would change everything so that you weren’t in this position. Thank you. I’d like to change things, too. You know, nikolas provoked me. He threatened me, and he threatened — he threatened avery. That’s why I-I did what I did. But I wish I hadn’t let him get the best of me. Avery is just a child. Are you sure that nikolas would really hurt her? The last time I came to visit you, we both saw austin come in carrying his medical bag. Wait. You think that austin is connected to sonny’s enemy? I know he is. Austin and mason gatlin have been circling me trying to get evidence on me violating the nsa so they can bring it back to the — you know, whoever they’re working for. So I fed them false information. The plan was to follow them back to their boss. And you think whoever they’re working for is — is here? And the trail stops right here. And because I’m in pentonville, maybe I got a shot at figuring out who austin came to see that day. I couldn’t have rescued you from ferncliff without sam’s help. She became my medical proxy and had me committed so I could get to you in ferncliff. She also left that car for us to escape in after we broke out, and she arranged for this cabin for us to hide in. Wha– sam, why would you do all that? I mean, what convinced you that I didn’t belong in ferncliff? Cody did. He never wavered in his belief in you. He always thought you were sane, that you never belonged in ferncliff. And he was convinced that everything that was happening to you was all wrong. Most I could have hoped for was for you to look the other way. Didn’t expect you to pitch in, but — unless you’re here to arrest us.

Trina, when you believe in something, you commit yourself 100% to it. It’s one of your many wonderful qualities. It’s why I’m not the least bit surprised that you have committed yourself to this gallery and to ava almost by default. By default? Ava’s been good to me, spencer, and so has this gallery. And is that why you stopped working at the chuck? Okay. Well, I’m just saying, it could have led to a better and more prestigious job. I-I don’t think working here diminishes my chances of having a successful art career. Ava lets me get my hands dirty in the earthier, more real art, which I love. That’s why I chose this career, because of the real art. I don’t think I could have had that experience if I stayed at the chuck. Okay, but working at a high-end gallery, that could serve as a stepping stone, and then it could put you in the position to maybe start dealing with, let’s just call it, more notable art. Yeah, and i appreciate that, but… I’m not interested in merely accepting a job just to use as a stepping stone to get to something better. The most important thing to me isn’t the notability of the art, but rather something more meaningful. I want to feel fulfilled and have a sense that I was part of a process. It’s about personal growth to me, not just an impressive title. Yeah, okay, I can understand that. It’s just that, working here, you really have your hands full, and it definitely increases the odds that you will fall off of one of these ladders. That was your fault, spencer. Yeah, maybe. But if you worked at the chuck, come on, you’d have a whole support staff. Am I wrong? Outsourcers?

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, you can call them what you want to call them. It’s just a lot. I’m starting school again. I-I still have to move into the dorms. I’ve been trying to make curtis feel as comfortable as possible since coming back from rehab. I’m trying not to neglect my relationship with my dad, and it just — it —

[ Sighs ] I’m sorry. I just went on a whole rampage of complaining. No. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Hey, no.I’m just feeling really frazzled right now. You never need to apologize for venting to me. It’s okay. It’s okay. That’s what I’m here for. I want to know everything about you. And I want to participate in your life as much as I possibly can. Lately, that doesn’t feel like it’s been possible. We haven’t gotten any alone time together. Well, that’s exactly why I’m here. Trina, I think I may have fixed that. Uh, no, I don’t go to pcu. Just here to help joss move in. Yeah. We’re — we’re kind of in a rush. Adam: Oh. We’re trying to get all this stuff together before trina comes back. Hey, I’m — I’m putting together a study group for organic chem. I was just wondering if — do you want to join? Oh, uh, I’ll think about it. Yeah, for sure — have you gotten the book yet? It’s a really tough class. I mean, I wouldn’t recommend not having a study group. You don’t want to fall behind in class just because you got distracted. You know what I mean? Yeah. No, for sure. Yeah. Um, I can’t commit to anything right now until I kind of check out my schedule and stuff. Yeah. Okay. Um, but I’ll let you know. Yeah. We’re just, you know — we’re kind of in a rush. I’m sorry. But it was good to see you. Good to see you. Bye. I’m sorry about that. He has a point. About what? Hey. Hi. Have you seen the breakfast rush downstairs in the garden? It must be this great september weather bringing everybody out. Maybe we should have kept the pool open until the end of the month. Uh, you’re in a good mood this morning. Oh, why shouldn’t I be? You know, I really thought it was the end for sonny. He really — he had me worried. I thought his luck had finally run out. And then, what? Charges dropped. He’s a free man. I guess you must be as relieved as I am, huh?

[ Sighs ] No offense, sonny, but this place is full of your enemies on both sides of the cell.Yeah, I’m — I’m aware of that. But anything that you could do to help me, I’d be very grateful. I mean, if I ask the wrong person, this could blow up in a bad way. Well, the most important thing is for you to stay safe. I will. I’m not crazy about you doing this. I’m not. I need you to keep your head down and do your time so we can get you the hell out of here. I’m doing my best. Diane thinks she’s found grounds to have your sentence reduced. I don’t want you to do anything that’s going to mess that up. We both want sonny corinthos off the street and out of our way. And if I would have given the feds accurate information, he’d be well on his way to a life in pentonville, locked up where he belongs. And I would have done the great state of new york a huge benefit, and it certainly wouldn’t have hurt my career. Do you think I wanted to give you wrong information? I’m still wondering how it happened. The feds booked and arrested him with what seemed like an airtight case and then, suddenly, all charges are dropped? Well, I’ll task you with finding out exactly how and why that happened. That would be the stupidest thing I could possibly do. I am not putting myself back out on the chopping block to get information on him. Oh, is that so? Well, I am not here to arrest you. I’m here to apologize to you both. I should have believed you. I know better than anyone how selfless you can be when the chips are down, how far you’ll go to help someone. And if I listened to you, I would have taken action a lot sooner. And, sasha, I-I don’t even know — words can’t convey how I feel about what gladys has done to you and how she’s betrayed your trust. And I am so very sorry. Why would she do this? She said that she loved me and that we were family.

Turks and caicos. I want to take you!

[ Chuckles ] We’re going to go to new york city first, and then we’ll have dinner, and we can see a show, and then we’ll continue on to the islands afterwards. Isn’t it hurricane season? Yeah. Trina, “isn’t it hurricane –” yes, it’s the best time to go, because the surfing is so good. Trina, you need this. I need this. We both need to get away for a little while. Okay, what — what about ace and esme? What are you going to do about that situation? It’s taken care of. I’m going to have my aunt alexis check in on ace every once in a while. And esme isn’t really one of my concerns. Uh, my grandmother will be back any day now. Trina, we never have any quality time alone here in port charles. We’re always getting interrupted by this or that. I mean, how nice would it be for us to just go away for a little while, have some time alone, be able to focus on us and only us and our relationship? It’d be nice. No, I can’t go with you. Honestly, I don’t know what nikolas was capable of that night. But after losing kiki the way I did, the way she died… seeing her lying there like that… not moving… begging her to wake up. Wake up. I couldn’t take any chances with avery. You understand that, don’t you? She’s all I’ve got left. And I will protect her with everything I’ve got. Yes, it was incredible when sonny was set free. And I know you have a special relationship with him. You guys have a long history, but come on, olivia. There must be another reason why you’re in such a good mood. Well, leo and I went to the recording studio with ned — or eddie yesterday, and I got to tell you, he was so great with leo. He was — he was telling him all about different gigs that he’d played in the past and really getting him involved in the — in the music-making process. And I’ll tell you what. It really is. It’s such a process, you know? Well, it sounds like the three of you had an eventful day. We did. We really, really did. And the song, nina, it’s amazing. It’s — it’s — it’s earthy. It’s — it’s gritty. It’s very, very moving. I heard him talk about it as, uh, “rootsy” and acoustic. It was — I mean, eddie is — he’s such a talented musician. It’s — olivia, you keep calling him eddie and not ned. It isn’t worth you spending an extra day in pentonville, especially if you’re going to make enemies of your own. I am very accustomed to assessing risk. I can handle this. We know you can. But do you want to? It’s very dangerous. Sonny got me out of solitary. This is the least I can do. I’m — I’m happy to help. Okay. You have to be careful. Promise me you’ll be careful. It sounds like mason and whoever austin’s boss is has been causing a lot of trouble for you lately, and I want to help. Whoever their boss is has made a lot of trouble for me and people I care about. That seems to be escalating. I have to deal with this one way or another, but one way you can help is let me know who they’re reporting to. Alright? I got it. I’ll — I’ll do what I can. I’ll keep my head down. Drew? You never… promise you’ll be careful. I promise I will be careful. I love you. I love you. Well, he’s doing it. Bringing down sonny corinthos is but one step in my quest to truly turn my life around. As you know, I recently donated my money to the rodden institute to end recidivism. I know. A smart and strategic move. It pleased you and your close friend, judge sinclair. And it was convenient for me that the judge sits on the charity’s board of directors. Yes. Very advantageous. But not unlike your passion project to work with former convicts, all your remarkable efforts creating those impressive work study programs, this has not gone unnoticed. Very strategic of you, as well. And how many articles have I read in the invader about your extraordinary leadership? The press holds you in very high regard. Judge sinclair’s decision to place me at pentonville is a testament to just that. A decision that could be easily reversed. I sense a threat in your statement. Are you threatening me? “Ye have heard that it hath been said, an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, that ye resist not evil: But whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.” Keep your nose clean.

Gladys is brando’s mother. She was with us when we lost liam. She’s — she’s the only family that I have. H-how could she betray me like this? Well, I have my own opinion about gladys, but, uh… she’s a weak person and she put herself in a, uh, really difficult spot. What kind of difficult spot? She played poker in a game sponsored by selina wu. How do you know that? ‘Cause I played in the same games. Sasha, my, uh — my job was to win for selina. And I saw firsthand gladys lost a lot, way more than she could repay on her own. So she used your money. First, she sold brando’s garage. Then she must have started raiding your bank accounts. The only way she could cover her debts was if she stayed in control of your money. When I wanted to end the guardianship, gladys — she tried to talk me out of it. She said that I wasn’t ready and that I-I was making a mistake. But it wasn’t about me at all. It was about my money. The harder I pushed eddie to be ned, the further I was pushing him away from — from me and from his family. I had to make a decision to accept eddie for who he is now, instead of trying to make him who he used to be. And who he is, he loves music. That is his passion, and for good reason, too. I’m telling you, nina, he is so talented, and he was so generous sharing that part of himself with leo. It really — it opened up a whole world for him. And — and, yeah, maybe he put me in touch with a part of myself that — that I almost forgot existed. You’re having a really good time with eddie. What does that mean? Are you falling for eddie maine? Do you not necessarily want ned back? I should get back downstairs. I got work to do. There’s other study groups besides adam’S. Okay? He’s just a lot sometimes. But he’s also pre-med, like you. Yeah. He goes to pcu. He’s going to be a doctor like you. Mm-hmm. I’m still going to be working for sonny. Those are very different worlds.

[ Gasps ] Are you dumping me because I’m pre-med?

[ Chuckles ] No. I would hate to think that you were biased against higher education. Oh, trust me when I say I think everything about you is amazing. Mm. I feel the same way about you. Aren’t I supposed to be helping you move in? Oh. No, you’re right. I’m s-sorry. No, you’re right.

[ Laughs ] Come on, trina. Hey, this is going to be fun, and this is going to be a great way for you to decompress before your semester starts at pcu. Yeah, I-I know it would, but I don’t think right now would be a good time to go away. My mom and curtis are still walking on eggshells, and I just want to be there to help. Yeah. Yeah, totally. But you’re going to be in constant contact with them. You’re going to be a phone call away. I don’t think that either curtis or your mother want you to curtail your life for them. I think they could probably use the alone time themselves. No, no, not with school starting right around the corner and — trina, why are you letting school stand in the way of you wanting to live your life? Trina, you’re so talented, and I’m certain that you could accomplish anything that you want to in life. So I really don’t understand why you feel like you need to do this school thing so that you can earn a piece of paper that validates your intelligence. It just doesn’t make any sense to me. Look, I appreciate your vote of confidence in me, but you come from money, spencer. Trina, my ancestry may be russian royalty, but it doesn’t mean that they didn’t have to work hard. Maybe not in the traditional sense, but they did. Look, all I can say is that I value education. And pcu has inspired me. So I don’t think taking a trip right now would be the smartest thing, especially in a hurricane zone. Okay. No. No. Okay. I just thought that it would be nice for us to get away. You didn’t let me finish. We can still go to new york and see a show and spend time together, just the two of us. I don’t think we have anything more to say to each other right now.

[ Buzzer ] Please take the prisoner back to his cell. Thank you, warden. I appreciate such a warm and supportive ear.

Hey. Hey. It’s going to be okay. I’m here. You tried to tell me so many times, cody, and I refused to listen. And now what are we going to do? I mean, w-we’re both escaped mental patients, cody. We’re fugitives. Dante: Well, you’re fugitives with friends. And there is a way out of this. With the four of us working together, we’ll figure it out. Yes! Yes, yes. Oh, my gosh! That’s so exciting. Okay, cool. I’m going to show you my favorite restaurant. It’s right near washington square park. And I can take you to my favorite pizza parlor and my favorite bakery. And — yes, okay. I will send you a list of shows, and then you will pick the one that you want to see or the two that you want to see or the three that you want to see. And we’ll go see all of them if we need to. Okay. Um, good. Yes. This is going to be fun. I’m so sick of, like, having to steal these little moments away with you, and I’m just ready for us to have a little bit of uninterrupted time with each other, you know? Yeah. Okay. Okay. Well, I’m going to go make some calls. Okay. I’ll talk to you later. Okay. Alright. Well, what’s the best suite you have? Is it a special occasion? Yeah. Yes, it’s going to be a very special weekend. I promise you something. I promise that I’ll lean on mason. I-I’ll do everything I can. Okay? But please promise me something. Promise me that you’ll be patient. Promise me that you won’t go talk to sonny. Nothing good can come of that. You know that more than I do. I meant what I said. I will go to sonny if I don’t get what I was promised.

[ Door closes ] You okay? I’m worried. Look, I-I know that drew is your best shot at finding out who austin visited here, and you need that information to keep yourself and our family safe. It just — I hate that it’s happening. All I need is for drew to give me one name. And I will take care of the rest. Hey. Hey. How you been? Honestly can’t complain. How’s your son doing? He’s doing really well. Yeah, he got a summer job this year at a pizza place.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. Isn’t he graduating from pcu this spring? Yes, he is. Nice. Mm-hmm. Might be able to get him an internship at aurora media, if that’d be something he’d be interested in. What would you want in return? I’d get him the internship regardless, but, uh… there is little information that I’d be interested in. That’s about what I figured. What is it you want to know? Nothing major. Oh. August 23rd, a doctor came here from G.H., Austin gatlin-holt. Mm. All I need to know is who he came into contact with and who he came to see.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Hang on, I’m coming.

Hey, Teresa, what are you doing here?

Hey, going somewhere? Yeah, Alex and I are flying to Greece tonight. Oh, yeah. I heard that’s where Victor was before his plane crashed. Mm hmm. Nobody knows what he was doing there, so we’re gonna go and try to figure it out. And why he destroyed his will. Well, well, that sounds like you’ve got a lot on your plate.

So, won’t stand in your way? Uh, hold on. Hold on. You, uh, you seem a little bummed. Think anything you want to talk about? No, I don’t want to hold you up anyway. My flight does not leave for a couple hours, so… Give it to me. What’s going on? Sean and I just, we just had a huge fight. Sorry. What about? Well, for starters, he’s drinking again.

If you’d rather be alone, I mean, I totally understand. No, no, you can join me. I just don’t think that I’d be very good company right now.

Trying to drown my sorrows away. I mean, that’s, that’s perfect, because that’s my plan too. And by all means, take a seat.

So, uh, what sorrows are you trying to drown? Heartbreak, with a side of humiliation.

I just got dumped tonight.

Uh, Chanel, I wasn’t expecting to see you again tonight. Well, I thought I’d surprise you. But if you’re busy, I can stop by tomorrow. Oh, don’t you dare. Because you and I… I have a lot to catch up on.

And then, for a while, I thought I was a priest. It’s a long story, but once again, it turned out to be nothing but a lie. I thought I had an identity issue. I’m telling you, it’s been a hell of a ride, spending most of your life not… Knowing who you really are, but then again, that’s something that you and I have in common.

Hmm. We did. And that’s all clear. You’re Mr. Robichaud. And I’m Timothy Dalton, a. k. a. James Bond. Um, uh… Nah, I’m putting you on. I’m more of a Sean Connery. Ha ha ha ha ha! I’m so glad to see you two are having fun getting reacquainted. Can you even believe this? I am actually having a conversation with… With my father, my real father.

Yeah. I’m so pleased. I’m so glad you found each other. Thanks to you, my dear. This one’s a keeper. Don’t I know it. You know, most people would’ve tried to put my memory back together by asking a few questions or something like that. If I failed, they would’ve just passed me off to somebody else. No, no, no, no, no.

I’m Dr. Marlene Adams. Oh. You know, I was a total stranger to you. And you offered to help me piece my life back together. And by God, she did it. Well, it wasn’t just me, you know. Black Patch had a lot to do with it. Well, I’m so grateful to both of you. You know, it’s getting a little late. You want to drive me back to my hospital?

Whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you talking about? You’re not going anywhere. Or not. No, hell no. You’re, you’re, you’re coming home with us.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. I probably should have called first, but

I thought it’d be fun to surprise you. No, it’s cool. I just got out of the shower, but yeah, it’s cool. I love a good surprise. But how the hell did you know where I live? Oh, Stephanie told me. your phone number. You know Stephanie Johnson? She’s my cousin. Oh, wow. And she has no problem with us going out, by the way.

Which is why I came here. To nail down our dinner plans. Huh. Well, I told you I can’t do that just yet. Because I’m going to Greece. Right, yes. Yeah, you mentioned that on the phone. I just, I didn’t realize you were leaving so soon. Yeah, yeah, we’re leaving tonight actually. Just not too sure when we’re going to be back.

Okay. This is cool. I’ll play it by ear. But, um, just out of curiosity, why are you guys going to Greece? And when I suggested that Sean get help, he just lashed out. And he threw EJ in my face. Oh, God. I thought it was over that. Oh, I know. He was just picking a fight. But still, he was just so angry. How did you leave it?

I told him I wanted to go home and talk, and he just stormed off. I think I’m sorry. No, I know. I just, I, I thought that he was really committed to getting better. You know, I thought that we had turned a corner, and now I just, I just don’t know what to do, Brady. Oh, sweetie. Come here. It’s okay. It’s okay.

Alright, wait. What guy was stupid enough to dump you? Actually, it wasn’t a guy. Oh, oh, oh, I’m sorry. I’m sorry I didn’t know. Yeah, neither did I. Until I met Chanel, you know, even though it was under false pretenses, I ended up developing real feelings for her. And yeah, it was scary at first, but I don’t know, it just all ended up feeling right.

How long were you two together? A few weeks. Okay, I know how that sounds, but I thought it was a sorry something special, okay? And then tonight, out of the blue, she tells me that she’s getting back with her ex.

So, how’d it go with Talia after I left? I was honest with her. I told her that you didn’t just drop by, but that you told me you still have feelings for me. And she asked me how I let you down. And I told her that I didn’t. And then she started to… Get the picture. It must have been really hard for you. I know you care about her a lot.

Yeah, I hated hurting her. But what else could I do? I had to tell her the truth. Well, hey, I don’t want to impose. Well, how can you be in an imposition? You are my father. I won’t be in the way. We would love to have you as our guest. And besides, it’s going to give you a chance to meet Brady. And Brady is…

Your grandson. That’s right, you mentioned that before. And I can’t wait for you to meet Belle. I have kept you to myself long enough. It is time for you to go meet the rest of your family. I can’t wait.

That’s all you take the news. Not well. I, I tried to reassure her and comfort her, but she ran off before I could. Poor Talia. Yeah. Yeah, she was totally blindsided.

Honestly, I, I shouldn’t even be surprised that Chanel ditched me for Johnny. I mean, after all the horrible things that I did. Like, how could I ever think that Chanel would want a future with me? Wow! I feel like such an idiot. Hey, come on. Now, you are not an idiot. You’re not an idiot. Relationships, they’re…

They can get messy and unpredictable and, I mean, no matter how much you think you know somebody, you can’t always see everything that’s coming. Case in point, yesterday I thought that my wife and I, I thought that, I thought we were doing well. And then all of a sudden today, it’s, it was a big blow up. Well, what’d you guys fight about?

I mean, you don’t have to tell me. You don’t want to. No, I mean, I don’t mind. It’s like, she just… She doesn’t agree with my drinking. Yeah, I mean, she gives me zero sympathy, zero. It’s like, she doesn’t even attempt to try to just, try to understand what it is that I have been going through. I mean, all she does is she attacks me, and then she goes and, she tells me that I need to go to rehab.

I, I, I, I know, I know that that means well. I do, I just, I don’t want her to fix me. I just, I want her to accept what I feel. It’s just, it’s just unrelenting, gut wrenching, soul searing guilt. I get my, my grandfather, my grandfather’s dead, and my father is in a coma, and he may never wake up. And, you know, whether it’s rational or not, I just…

I feel like, I feel like I’m the one that’s responsible for that. Sean, I’m so sorry. That’s a lot to deal with. Yeah, thank you. For what? For, for being the first person that doesn’t try to convince me that it’s not my fault.

It means a lot to me.

I should have seen this coming. Oh, come on, Belle. I mean, Sean was here this morning, and he seemed fine. Yeah, but then we went to Victor’s funeral, and as soon as we got there, he was completely on edge. He just sat there like a stone the whole time, and then, Brady, he didn’t even get up to say anything. And then after that, he went to the pub to go pack Chelsea a lunch before she left, and so I just…

lost track of him. I mean, how could I not know that he was drinking? Don’t, don’t, don’t blame yourself. Look, you’re doing the best you can. Am I? Yeah. Or do I just want to believe that my husband’s out of the woods so I have completely ignored everything that I knew was true? What does that mean? I just, it was just all too much too fast.

Lifting the psych hold and him going back to work. I mean, I just. I wanted to be supportive, right? So I went with it and now Sean is completely backslid and he’s pushing me away again. Oh, Phil. I’m glad you’re here. I was about to call you. Oh, about what? Well, there’s somebody your father and I would like you to meet.

Do you remember me talking about the John Doe at the hospital? Yeah, uh, is that the guy at the hospital that couldn’t remember who he was? Yeah, well, your father figured it out. His name is Timothy Robichaud. Yo, yo, Yo Ling is alive? No, no, no, no, that, that man was an imposter. Wait, what? What do you mean? I know it’s a…

Welcome home. Isabella. Brady, I would like you to meet your grandfather.

Are you going to Greece for work? No, I’m going because of my Uncle Victor.

That’s probably Brady. He’s supposed to be picking me up, but he’s a little bit early.

Hey, can I help you? Are you Alex Kariakis? Yeah, I am. And you are? Agent Andrew Donovan, ISA. Andrew? Teresa! Like, do you know each other? Uh, kind of. He’s, he’s my big brother. How did you know that I was here? I didn’t, I actually came to see Alex.

So once Timothy remembered that Joseph be a k a, yo Ling had switched his dog tags, all of this just fell into place. I mean, this is incredible. After all this time. No, I’m telling you, it’s fate. Fate brought him home to us. I don’t, I don’t even know where to begin. I mean, there’s so much, so much to catch up on.

Well, why don’t we start from the beginning? Tell me about yourself, Brady. Um, wow, I, I run a company, uh, that my dad started called Basic Black. I, I have two children, Tate, who is in boarding school in California, and my little girl, Rachel, who is actually here in Salem. Oh, how wonderful. How about you, Belle?

Uh, well, I am a lawyer, and I have one daughter. Her name’s Claire, and she lives in South Africa. Are you married? Uh, yeah, I am. My husband, Sean, is a detective. Oh, lovely to meet him. Call him. Get him over here, Tink. No, no, he can’t make it. He’s, um, tied up at the moment. Uh, you must think that I’m weird, that I don’t want anyone to alleviate my guilt.

What? No! I, look, I get it, okay? And dude, there isn’t no question that Colin manipulated me into doing things I didn’t want to do. What’d I do? I did it anyway. But, I took responsibility for it. Yeah, yeah, exactly. See, I agree with you. I agree. It’s like, I didn’t mean to shoot my dad. I, I, Look, it was a terrible mistake.

Yes, I agree. But, it doesn’t change the fact that I still did it. And you gotta own it. Yeah, exactly. You’re just owning your mistakes.

So what do you say I order us another round, huh? Or, you could call your wife and have her come pick you up. You know, try to fix things. That’s the last thing that I want to do right now. Now I feel kind of bad. You know, if I had just kept my mouth shut, you and Talia would still be happy. No. No, Johnny, I’m glad you told me how you feel.

If you hadn’t, I would have just kept denying what’s, what’s been in my heart.

Which is… What? I never stopped loving you.

And I never… Stopped loving you either. So

what are you doing in Salem, sis? I, uh, I came back from Victor’s funeral, which is actually where I met Alex, and we kind of hit it off. Only you would pick up a guy at a funeral.

But it you were all about Brady, and how much you missed him, and wanted to try to get back together. Yeah, well, I floated that idea by Brady, and he wasn’t into it, so… So you let it go? Sort of. Hmm. Janie, Theresa, what are you up to? Mm mm. So, Mr. Donovan, what did you want to see me about? Well, uh, I heard that you and Brady Black are going to Greece.

So I thought I’d stop by to remind you that your uncle’s plane crash is still an active investigation. And it would be best if you let the ISA handle it. Of course. And we’re not trying to get in your way, trust me. Just trying to figure out why my uncle took a detour to the old country without telling anybody.

If it had anything to do with his will. His will? Yeah. Apparently he called his lawyer from Greece and told him to destroy it. And then this morning, Vivian Almayne shows up in Salem claiming that her divorce from my uncle Victor wasn’t finalized, therefore making her the sole heir to his fortune. My dad looked into it, and it’s true.

Oh my God. Poor Maggie. You have my word, man. Brady and I will stay out of the agency’s way. But if there is anything that you can tell me that might help figure out why my uncle was in Greece, that would be very much appreciated.

I just can’t believe the timing of all of this. I mean, one grandfather laid to rest this morning, and now Belle and I are reunited with… Another grandfather. I’m sorry for your loss, Brady. Thank you. Bill? Was he your grandfather too? Oh, no. Um, he was my father in law for a little while, but that’s a story for another day.

I’ll look forward to that. John, didn’t you say you had a third child too? Well, that’s a fact. His name’s Paul. You’re going to love him because he was a big league ball player. I know that you’re a fanatic of the game. Fanatic, yeah. Does Paul live in, uh, Salem? No, he’s in San Francisco. But I gave him a call, I told him all about you, and hopefully you’re going to meet him sometime soon.

But in the meantime, I’m going to show you some pictures. Now, why do that when you got the real deal right here? Oh my god! Come on, kid! What a surprise! Look at that! What a nice surprise. Oh, honey. It’s so good to see you. Like

I said, the plane crash is an ongoing investigation, so I can’t say much. Oh, come on, Andrew. Clue him in. Do it for Tate, Victor’s his great grandfather. Plus, you can’t let that witch Vivian screw over Maggie.

I can tell you this much. Victor met with a man named Constantine Melionis. He owns a restaurant outside of Athens. Do you know anything about what that meeting was? Well, as far as our investigation goes, it wasn’t very helpful. But Constantine might be of some use to you. Thank you, Agent Sullivan. I appreciate it.

You’re welcome. Just do me a favor and stay out of trouble. Ah, I’ll try. So, bro, did you come all the way from D. C. just to give Alex a warning? No, I came to see my boyfriend. Oh, Paul’s in town? He’s here to see his family.

This is great! What are you doing here? Why didn’t you tell me I have a new grandfather and think I’m not going to be on the first flight out? It is such a pleasure to meet you. I’m Paul. Paul, so you’re the big time ball player, huh? Well, I’m coaching now, but I used to be a pitcher. Yeah, I had a good arm, right?

Yeah, I guess that’s in the genes, huh? Paul, you might owe your career to Timothy here. Wait, does that mean I get a cut of your own salary, huh? Counselor, huh? Am I got a case here? Well, he definitely is your father. And what a joy and a relief that is. For me, too. I assume you told him about Yoling, the man who Joseph Bell became?

That was one messed up dude. To say the least. The man that kidnapped my dad because he wanted his blood. What? Yeah, he claimed he had some rare disease where he needed a transfusion. Never mind the fact that the procedure was potentially deadly. And he kidnapped Paul also, wanted to brainwash him to head up his cult of assassins.

The Phantom Alliance. Yeah, but I was able to break free, and down the hall, I found him in a laboratory, some strange contraption strapped to his head, and, um, a couple of armored guards almost, uh, stopped us, but if it wasn’t for Doc and my partner Steve coming in the nick of time, it… Oh, John, I’m so sorry.

I had to go through that. Which I couldn’t have saved you. Hey, no regrets, because the important thing is, we are all together right now. Yes, Dad’s right. We’re finally reunited, and we are so grateful that you’re here.

So you don’t know. Okay, I, okay, I know, I know Bella’s an excellent, she’s an excellent lawyer, but… You know, as a wife, as a wife she’s made plenty of mistakes, plenty, and uh, the most recent was with EJ DiMera. Well, what do you mean? She um, she, she cheated on me with him. Okay, look, I know that we were, we’re legally separated, but I mean, come on, still, she’s still my wife, right?

Yeah. And it’s not the first time that she’s cheated. Uh, God. Sean, I’m so sorry. And you must be feeling a lot of pain right now. But it obviously didn’t break you, okay? I mean, you guys are still together. That right there says a lot in itself. Yeah, yeah, no, I guess. I just, I just, I feel like, after everything that she’s put me through, I feel like it’s only fair that she just, she lets me have a little bit of space, you know, to, to like, fall apart a little bit.

I mean, and without the guilt, especially. You know, the least that she could do is just like, No, let me feel what I feel.

You wanna, uh, go up to my room? Go easy, tiger. We just got back together. Whoa, whoa, I just was, I didn’t want anyone to walk in on us while we were kissing. Uh huh. I wasn’t implying that we should, you know. Take things a little further. Whatever you say, G. Okay, alright, fine. I admit, I was hoping that we could, you know, make love.

But that’s just because, I don’t know, I’m a little, I’m afraid to believe that this is real. I just wanted to do whatever I could to… Keep you from changing your mind. I’m not gonna change my mind. I know what I want.

It’s you. Thank you for backing me up with your brother. You probably never would have given me that lead about Constantine if you weren’t here. No. No problem. I like making myself useful. Yeah? Well, I like dinners. And I’m going to treat you to a very special one as soon as I get back. Well, why wait? Sorry?

Oh, I was just thinking. Maybe I could be useful to you and Brady in Greece. And there’s tons of really nice restaurants there, ISA.

Not just through Andrew, my dad’s the director of the entire organization, so… I could call in a few favors. And I’m excellent at solving puzzles. I’ll go get packed. Therese, hang on a second. As much as I would love for you to come with us, I do not think Brady’s gonna like that. So why don’t we stick to our original plan and take you out to dinner as soon as I get back?

I sound okay? Yeah, of course. Yeah? Yeah. Good. Good luck to you both and, uh, I guess I’ll see you when you get back. Thank you. Thank

you. So, just to be clear, we definitely are not taking it any further tonight, right? You really like that euphemism, don’t you? I’m just trying to be a gentleman. And I appreciate that. So, no. No, we are not taking things any further. No, not tonight. Not tonight. Okay, fine. Then, what should we do instead? Um, we should watch a movie.

I know just the one. Oh, wow. Don’t worry, there’s no hockey masks or chainsaws. It’s called What’s Up, Doc? And you’re sure it’s not a hoax? Yes, I’m sure. In fact, it is a love story. Oh. Well, in that case…

I’m in. You must think that I’m a terrible, terrible husband. What? No, believe me, I’m the last person to judge, okay? Do you know I’ve been in one serious relationship in my whole entire life? Yeah, I mean, come on, that’s because you’re too busy becoming a brilliant actor. Yeah, and? I now know how to practice medicine.

Guess what? I don’t know how to love anybody, though. No, seriously, I’m defective. Damaged goods. No, come on, are you not? What’s a human? You did not. I never wanted to play this part.

Oh, come on. You got your air if you fell out of a plane. Oh, jokes are your son. bigger. Paul, catching on. I noticed you were strangely quiet when Timothy asked about Sean. Bigger and vigor and bigger. That’s what I, something wrong. Half was getting bigger. He got drunk again. Oh, I’m so sorry. Did he threaten to hurt himself?

No, it’s nothing like that. I just think that Victor’s funeral was too much for him. And, um, You know, it’s clear that his behavior It’s showing he needs more help, and I said that to him, which did not go over well, and so he got really mad and stormed off. I’m sorry. Would you like me to reach out to him?

No, it’s okay. I tried. He’s not responding. I just think I need to give him some time to cool off and, um, I’ll go look for him later. I think for Now,

I didn’t even meet Paul until I was an adult, so I missed out on the whole experience of raising him. Like I did with you. But Dad and I definitely made up for lost time. I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive and loving father. And I second that. Aw, thanks kids. And Dad even came and visited, uh, last year in San Francisco for Gay Pride.

Gay Pride? Are you, uh, A gay. Yes. Well, I got that. I was going to ask if you were married. No, no, uh, but I do have a boyfriend. And here he is now. Hey, Andrew.

Andrew, this is my grandfather, Timothy Robichaud. And Timothy, this is Andrew. Andrew Donovan. It’s an honor to meet you, Mr. Robichaud. Uh, Paul was so excited when he heard the news, he couldn’t wait to meet you. Hope I lived up to the hype. Oh, and then some. We couldn’t ask for a better addition to our family.

Truly, we are so blessed to have you in our lives. Well, I’m a little overwhelmed with your kindness and generosity. You know, you’ve just… Welcome me into your house. After, after I got out of the war, I was alone for a long time. And now, after all this time, to be surrounded by so many loving faces, it overwhelms me.

I think my heart’s about to burst. I think you better get used to it. Because with this family, that love is just gonna keep on a comin

I think we need to preserve this moment. Why don’t you all get in, I’ll take your first picture as a family.

Alright people, get together, come on.

Alright, on three, say, family. Perfect. One, two, three. Family!

I thought for sure Sean would be here.

Oh my

god, I know, right? Do you have any idea how close I was to pulling the whole thing off? Hey, don’t you know who I am? Yup, yup.

What’s up, guys? Cheers. Cheers. Oh, mm mm. Wait a second. Doesn’t your sister live here too? It’s her place! Well, I hope she doesn’t mind that we’re gonna have a little party. I mean, because I wouldn’t want to piss off my partner. Well, listen, uh, you have nothing to worry about. She’s pulling all nighter at work, so…

So, that means we have the place to ourselves.


Uh huh. Okay, this is a classic. You’re gonna love it. What’s up, Dot? So, is this a forbidden love story about a patient and a surgeon? Um, no. It is a romantic screwball comedy. And like I said, you’re going to love it, I promise. Okay, wait, wait, wait. First, does it have a happy ending?

It sure does. Good. Man,

I missed you. I missed you too. I’m so glad we could meet up in Salem. Although, your reason for being here is much more exciting than mine. So, how’d it go with Alex Kiriakis? Hmm. Fine. But guess who was at his place when I showed up? My sister, Teresa. What was she doing there? Uh, apparently they met at Victor Kiriakis funeral and hit it off.

So, what, they were just hanging out? That’s how she made it seem. But something tells me that she has a hidden agenda. Why do you say that? Because she always does.

Let’s go. Let’s

Oh, check this out. Teresa’s brother Andrew stopped by. I guess he’s in town visiting his boyfriend. Yeah, yeah, he’s dating my brother. Yeah, I was just with him. Oh, small world. Anyway, he gave me a lead about Uncle Vic. I think it’s gonna really help us. I’ll fill you in on the way.


Marlena, why don’t you join us? Oh, thanks. I will, as soon as I get your room ready.

John, it’s been wonderful meeting everybody and everything, but… But what? Well, I mean, you have things to do, you got work, you got obligations, and I don’t want to pull you away from… No, you’re not pulling me away from anything. There’s no place I’d rather be than right here, right now with you, and just… You know, I’m getting to know you a little bit better, if that’s okay with you.

Oh, are you kidding? No place I’d rather be than right here with my family. No, we all feel the same way. It’s okay if I, if I call you dad. Are you kidding? I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Oh, Dad. You’re a big liar. I get it from you.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Upbeat music ]

Ridge: Just like dad, isn’t it? To create a whole new collection. Why now? The forrester season’s already set.

Brooke: He is determined, that’s for sure.

Ridge: Yeah, he’s determined.He’s always determined. I mean, he should go on vacation, take some rest, retire already.

Brooke: Retirement is not on his mind. Let’s look at the bright side of this. He’s using our son to help him create his grand finale.

Eric: Rj, I am so happy, so happy to have your support.

Rj: Hey, it goes both ways. Thank you for trusting me to bring your vision to life. And for teaching me.

Eric: You’re welcome. You’re a natural, you know?

Rj: Ah, come on! I don’t know about that.

[ Eric laughs ]

Eric: I do. Look, I’m so thankful that that you’re following in my footsteps. I really am. And I’m so grateful that you’re giving me the spark and the energy to create this final line of mine. Thank you.

Hope: Stop what you’re doing. All right, I want to try this on and get your thoughts.

Thomas: Okay, so what do we have here? Is it the number five with the added straps?

Hope: Hm. Why don’t you find out?

Thomas: Okay.

Hope: You know, what am i doing? It’s just–

Eric: Come on, we’re almost finished with this.

Donna: I hate to break up the party, honey bear, but, um, you wanted me to remind you about your call with pasquale.

Eric: Oh. Oh, that’s right. He’s one of our longtime suppliers. Wait ’til you see the chiffon. It’s super.

Rj: Can’t wait.

Eric: Yeah. Good. Uh, uh, luna, it was such a pleasure to meet you and I appreciate you bringing all this stuff to us. We’re very lucky to have you at forrester. Welcome.

Luna: My pleasure, thank you.

Eric: Good, okay. See you.

Rj: I’ll see you. Well, and then there were two.

Luna: I, um, I hope you don’t mind me of watching a bit while you worked.

Rj: Oh, what? Were you? I did– I didn’t even notice that.

Luna: Um, listen, I know that I’m just like an intern and I probably shouldn’t be commenting on things but your design, it’s fire.

Rj: Thank you. I appreciate it. I mean, you know, they’re all my granddad’s ideas. I’m just sketching them.

Luna: No, it’s an art. I mean, you’re an artist. It was sweet to see you work with your grandfather.

Ridge: I wonder how my dad got rj to start designing. And I’ve tried, as you know, over the years to, you know, suddenly move them in that direction.

Brooke: Subtly?

Ridge: Yeah. Yeah. Very subtly. I just– I want him to be part of this legacy, you know.

Brooke: Yeah. Yeah, it’s more like, “hi, son. How was school today? Ready to come work for me at the office?” Or “merry christmas, son. Here’s a new set of pencils.”

Ridge: Yeah.

Brooke: Or how about… “if you spent half the time honing your design skills as you do on that phone?

Ridge: What is that? That’s me? I’m doing this?

Brooke: Yeah, that’s you.

Ridge: I never do that. And those were good pencils. Are you done?

Brooke: Are you?

Ridge: Yes. No, I’m not. No, I’m not done because I want– I want my boy to work with me at this company.

Brooke: Well, I think that’s what he’s doing. But with your father.

Ridge: Yeah. And that’s okay. What better person to learn from? My dad’s the greatest. He’s the master and he– he should be helping younger people. Mentor them, start a school, do something. You didn’t have to design a whole new line for us. We’re fine. Everything’s fine. Hope for the future’s doing great. Couture’s doing great. We don’t have room for another line. So, I gotta find a way somehow to put an end to this grand finale my dad has in mind. For people who are a little intense about hydration.

Brooke: So seriously, how are you gonna convince your dad not to do the collection?

Ridge: I don’t know. I have no idea, but I have to do it and I will do it with love and kindness because I– I don’t want him thinking that I’m taking his keys away, you know.

Brooke: Well, he wouldn’t let you do that anyway. You see the tricky part is that our son is involved now and we don’T… want him to have a negative reaction about being a designer.

Ridge: Exactly, but I think if– if I try to explain to rj that this is not good for granddad, that designing this whole line is too much for him, then maybe they’ll understand. What I don’t want is him stuck in the middle cause that’s what it seems like right now.

Brooke: Okay. Well, don’t think that, okay? Our son, rj, is a designer. I mean, did you ever think?

Ridge: I always thought that. He didn’T. I was right.

Brooke: I mean, this could be the brand new beginning of this very exciting chapter in rj’s life.

Ridge: Yeah. I just gotta get through to my dad.

Luna: I should, um, get back to forrester.

Rj: Yeah. Yeah. Well, um, I’m headed that way too. You know, I never actually sketched in front of anyone before.

Luna: Oh. Don’t tell me I made you nervous. Oh, okay. Well, if this is your work when you’re distracted, then I can only imagine when you’re really vibing.

Rj: Thank you. So, what did you say earlier? You said something about you attending fashion school, yes?

Luna: Yeah. So, just imagine how incredible all this is for me. I mean, getting an internship at a major fashion house?

Rj: Well, I mean, when you put it like that–

Luna: Yeah, it’s the ultimate behind the scenes. You work well with your grandfather.

Rj: Yeah. Yeah, I really, uh, I really lucked out on a mentor there. I was, uh– I was very lucky to grow up in all of this, you know? I have so many memories of my dad and my granddad just designing together for hours.

Luna: And yet you’re so normal.

Rj: Yeah. Well, you just met us, so… heck, you don’t even know me yet.

Luna: No, it kind of feels like I do. From your content.

Rj: Ah.

Luna: Yes.

Rj: That’s right. You follow me, don’t you? What do you follow me on? I’m gonna find out right now. Luna.

Luna: All right, what are you– what are you–

Rj: L-u-n-A. Oh, there you are. Found you. Is that you? Yeah? Oh, wow. You’re private. Come on. I showed you mine.

[ Luna chuckles ]

Luna: See? Nice.

Rj: All right, fine. You wanna keep me guessing? I like it. Very mysterious. Hm.

[ Both chuckling ] Tv: Try tide power pods with 85% more tide in every pod.

Thomas: You know, I– I always enjoyed fittings with us.

Hope: Hm. It’s long overdue. You know, when we would, um… and your hands were on my body, I thought that maybe you could hear my heart beating. So fast. And now… I don’t have to hide it.

Rj: So, he wants to do that. Hi, mom. How are you?

Brooke: Hi, rj, ginge.

Ginge: Hi, mrs. Forrester.

Rj: Um, what is it? He wants to also increase dawn and theodore’s hours for the next couple of weeks. And alterations. Let alterations know that they are now exclusive to eric. He has some new designs.

Ginge: Okay. Got it. Yeah, he’s– he’s really been cranking them out. I’ll scan those in, uh, for the server.

Rj: Yeah. Thank you, man. I appreciate it.

Ginge: Yeah. Hey, anytime. You, um, you gonna drop any new content soon? I notice you haven’t posted in over a week.

Rj: Uh, yeah, I just– I’ve just been super busy.

Ginge: Sure there’s anything I can help you with?

Rj: Um, just the scans for now. Thanks.

Ginge: Yeah. Um, I’m on it.

Rj: Thanks.

Ginge: Bye, mrs. Forrester.

Brooke: Bye. I like seeing you around here helping out. Seems like you’re doing a lot of that these days.

Rj: Yeah. Uh, so dad, um, he knows, doesn’t he? He knows that I’m designing with granddad?

Brooke: Uh, well, I was instructed to deliver a message and I couldn’t really do that unless I told your dad that you were working with your grandfather.

Rj: I feel like I should talk to him.

Brooke: Yeah. That would be a good idea.

Rj: Where is dad? Where is he?

Brooke: Well, I– he went to talk to your grandfather.

Rj: Was dad upset?

Brooke: He appreciates what you’re both doing. He really does. He’s just worried about eric.

Ridge: Dad? So, I understand you’re coming after me.

Eric: So, you spoke to brooke, did you?

Ridge: Yeah. Wow. This is, um… hey, oh, I just had an idea. How about this? How about we find a place? Not– not just a place, a whole building just for design and fashion. You want to do that? We could call it, um, forrester creations. Find a little place in beverly hills. May I?

Eric: Yeah. Sure. Go ahead.

Ridge: Rj?

Eric: Mm-hmm. He illustrated my vision for me with my help. Yeah.

Ridge: Oh, man. Wow, you did it.

Eric: I did what?

Ridge: You got rj to pick up a pencil and do something. You– you succeeded where I failed.

Eric: Yeah.

Ridge: This is amazing.

Eric: It is. Bold lines, extraordinary texturization. I mean, you can’t teach that.

Ridge: No, you can teach that. That’s eric forrester. It’s a signature right here.

[ Eric chuckles ] Thank you for teaching rj. Makes my heart sing.

Eric: That’s not all that’s going on here, you know. Mentoring rj.

Ridge: I know, I– I know that I, but, um, how about this? How about… we take some of these designs and put them in the couture line? Could we do that?

Eric: Your collection?

Ridge: I–

Eric: Not interested. This is my line, ridge. Not yours. This is my grand finale.

Hope: You sure you’re good with this? Can you handle it? Yes?

Rj: So, what are– what are you saying? Are you saying dad’s concerned?

Brooke: The toll it could take on eric designing a whole new collection. Besides, we already have a full lineup.

Rj: And– but he’s got me to help him, so–

Brooke: And we’re very excited about that. That you’re giving design a try. You know this is a dream come true for your dad. I just hope it doesn’t come at the expense of your father’s relationship with your grandfather.

Eric: So, what do you think? Oh, you’re gonna give us notes now, right?

Ridge: I’m not. No, I’m not. That’s not what I’m doing at all. I’m– I’m just– I’m happy that you got rj to design stuff.

Eric: It’s in his blood, ridge.

Ridge: It is. I couldn’t agree more. It’s in all of our blood, right? Three generations of forrester. Look, I– I get thomas to join us and all of us will do something together.

Eric: Wait, all of us? On your line?

Ridge: That’s not–

Eric: That’s not gonna happen. You know, ridge… you’re not listening to me. I need this.

Ridge: You need what?

Eric: I need– I need the excitement and– and the limelight and the stress. Just like it was in the beginning for me.

Ridge: Okay, and why do you need that now? What, you– you’ve proven yourself over and over again.

Eric: And this is my chance to do it one more time. One more beautiful line. That’s what I wanna do. And I tried to tell you this, but– but you dismissed me.

Ridge: I didn’t dismiss you.

Eric: Yes, you did. “I’m too busy running the line. I’m too busy running the company.” The company that I founded.

[ Ridge scoffs ] You gave me a million reasons why I shouldn’t do this. And you know, that’s what convinced me that I needed to do this without you. And that’s the way it’s gonna be. You’re not gonna talk me out of this.

[ Ridge exhaling ] What?

Ridge: I wish mom were here.

Eric: [ Chuckles ] Why? So, she could gang up on me too?

Ridge: No! No one is ganging up on you, you crazy old loon. She would see her eric forrester. The man she loved so much. His passion, his desire… however misguided it may be. You know what? Fine, do it. Do your collection, I’ll do mine. We’ll let the buyers decide. We’ll settle it on the runway. Deal?

Eric: Deal.

Victoria: Hi, dad.

Victor: Hi, sweetheart.

Victoria: I would ask what brings you by, but I’m pretty sure I already know.

Victor: Oh, yeah? What would that be?

Victoria: You’re wondering how I feel about nicholas’s decision to not come back to newman enterprises.

Victor: And?

Victoria: Well, I can’t say that I’m surprised thanks to his distrust of nate, which is ironic as hell since he agreed to work alongside adam, and who is more untrustworthy than adam?

Victor: Mm-hmm. I think, um… adam has learned his lesson.

Victoria: Oh, really? What pathetic show has he put on for you this time? Did he tell you about his troubled youth? His parental neglect? Did he tell you that he’s a new man now, he’s turned over a new leaf, he wants to prove himself to you?

[ Victoria sighs ] Dad, please tell me you’re not getting pulled in by adam again. It makes me so sad to see him keep hurting you.

Victor: I believe him. And I think once nicholas calms down, he will return.

Victoria: Well, I’m really sorry, but that’s not a chance that I’m willing to take. I think we need to move forward based on what nicholas has said, not what he might do. Which is why I am lobbying to promote nate immediately as co-ceo.

Nate: Scotch neat, please.

Audra: Well, you’re all sunshine and rainbows today.

Nate: Aren’t I always?

Audra: Mm. Of course. Except when you’re brooding over a drink.

Nate: Never brooding. Thank you.

Audra: Planning your next move? So, what’s going on?

Nate: Well, for starters, nick’s not coming back to newman enterprises. And nikki is still taking over newman media.

Audra: Tell me about it. I’m working under a woman who wouldn’t trust me to watch her purse for five seconds. It’s just, um, it’s a dream come true.

Nate: Yeah, we both have a lot of work to do if we’re gonna turn nikki newman around about us. But it will be more than worth it.

Audra: Yeah, we can only hope. So, why are you in such a good mood? It can’t just be because you no longer have to report to your girlfriend’s brother. Oh, wait a minute. I get it. Nick’s no longer coming back to newman enterprises. Nikki is still taking over newman media, which means… the second-in-command position at newman enterprises is vacant. Did victoria offer it to you?

Nate: Not yet.

Audra: Huh. But it’s so close, you can taste it.

Nate: It’s the logical move.

Audra: But you don’t really think it’s gonna be that easy, do you?

Esther: Sharon tells me that her new venture with you and nick imploded, and so she’s moving forward on her own, which leaves you out in the cold again.

Adam: I can tell you were just sick about it.

Esther: What do you expect?

Adam: You know, maybe someday, you could remind me what I’ve done to make you despise me.

Esther: What, are you kidding me? One word. Chloe.

Adam: Look, I have done everything in my power to make sure that your daughter might have a change of heart about me.

Esther: Well, she doesn’t hate you anymore and you can thank your lucky stars for that, but she doesn’t trust you either.

Adam: Yeah, she’s in a lot of company there.

Esther: You know, I believe in change and second chances. I mean, we all deserve that much. But you have had all the second chances in the world and you have wasted every single one of them. It’s a crime. You could do so much better, but you don’T. No wonder no one thinks you’ll ever change.

Nikki: I’ll second that. Believe it or not, I’m glad I ran into you. May I have a word in private?

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Tucker: Your mother is fine, abby. She’s in paris thinking some things through. And I did nothing to upset her or hurt her, okay? So, nice seeing you.

[ Abby scoffs ]

Abby: No. No. I am not going anywhere until I get some answers. Some answers I actually believe. What did my mom have to stay in paris to think about? I mean, it was your honeymoon for god’s sake.

Tucker: She is reconsidering starting a new venture with me.

Abby: Why?

Tucker: You’ll have to ask her.

Abby: Just like that?

Tucker: Yeah, just like that.

Abby: So, you did nothing to initiate this change of heart? I mean, this decision just came out of nowhere? No. No, I am not buying it. You must have done something. Something to upset her, something to push her away.

Tucker: Of course I did because I’m just so diabolical, aren’t I? I just have no shred of human decency. Can’t even keep promises, can I? For your information, I did everything right this time, abby, everything. But your mother is incapable of seeing that I have changed. And what neither she nor you seem to understand is I have my limits too.

Audra: I fully understand you think you have victoria’s support on lock, okay? But let’s not forget you already have two strikes against you that could prevent you from becoming newman enterprises’ co-ceo.

Nate: How can I forget with you here to remind me?

Audra: Strike one. Victor is so conscious about trusting you.

Nate: And strike two?

Audra: Nikki flat-out hates you.

Nate: Okay, you’re giving me too much credit there. Nikki wouldn’t waste that level of emotion on me. She wouldn’t trust anyone with victoria. Not after locke. But I’ve made great strides in convincing her of my sincerity and my value to the company. As for victor, he asked for my opinion about the mccall-kirsten merger and he followed my advice after we talked about it.

Audra: Hm. So, in other words, um, they’re still testing you. Nate, just face it. Victoria is not going to defy her parents if they oppose promoting you. And even if she does, my money would be on her losing that battle.

Nate: I think you’re underestimating victoria’s power over her parents.

Audra: Oh, really? Was she able to stop victor from handing mccall unlimited to adam?

Nate: Victor’s relationship with adam is a separate issue. That’s bulletproof.

Audra: Keep telling yourself that.

Nate: Audra, what is going on with you? We’ve both been pulling for each other’s success from the minute that we met. Now, you’re dumping all this negativity on me.

Audra: It’s not negativity. Look, I’ve been shot down enough times to know that things never work out the way you think they will. Okay, so word of advice, don’t ever think you’re invincible. Always have a backup plan. Because no matter how hard you try, no matter how smart and dedicated you are, you will never be a newman. Which means you will never be in the inner inner circle, so you should just do yourself a favor and stop pretending that it will happen.

Adam: So, I assume that you spoke to victor?

Nikki: Of course, I did. Victor and I talk about pretty much everything, so yes, I heard about your mea culpa performance. How you wanted to hit the reset button and start all over again.

Adam: Nikki, what if it isn’t a performance?

Nikki: What if pigs fly? Victor is understandably skeptical. When it comes to you, there is a part of him that desperately wants to believe you are sincere.

Adam: And as always, you don’T.

Nikki: No, not for a second. I see this as a hollow attempt to change, but you and i both know that that will fail miserably, or you’re trying to tear this family apart yet again.

Adam: Nikki, why would I want to do that?

Nikki: Because that’s what you do. You can’t accept that victor cares about you, so you screw him over to prove that you don’t need him. Whichever it is, back the hell off. Stop this before it starts. ‘Cause I am telling you, if you try to hurt your father again, I will make it my mission to destroy your life and every connection to people you care about.

Victor: I don’t think nate hastings… is ready for a promotion of that magnitude.

Victoria: And I think that you’re wrong, daddy. I work very closely with nate, as you well know, and I’ve seen firsthand the value that he adds to newman enterprises, day after day after day.

Victor: No, you’re right. And that is the reason he already has a position of great power.

Victoria: Yes. And now there is a vacancy for an even more powerful position, available immediately. A position that I have every faith that he is more than qualified to fill.

Victor: And I have decided who’s gonna fill that chair. It ain’t gonna be nate hastings.

Dehydrated hair? For

Summer: Hi, you two!

Chance: Oh, my gosh, hey! Welcome back from milan. How’d it go?

Summer: It was great. It was a success on all fronts, both, uh, personally and professionally.

Chance: Yeah.

Summer: I– I’m feeling a lot stronger. Like a– like a whole new woman.

[ Chance chuckles ]

Sharon: Well, that’s great to hear, summer. Good for you.

Chance: Yeah. Yeah, you seem a lot better. I got to admit, I was, uh, worried.

Summer: Frankly, I was, uh, a little worried about me too. But you– you helped me through one of the roughest times of my life. I mean, you were really there for me as a friend and I really needed one. You know, we got off to kind of a rocky start.

Chance: Yeah, well, uh, arresting your mother for murder did make it a bit awkward.

Summer: Yeah, but believe me, I know where the blame for that lies and it’s not with you.

Sharon: You were in a terrible position, summer, but you came out on the other side.

Summer: Wasn’t pretty as i was going through it though. But actually, thanks to one of our conversations, I ended up on a roller coaster, screaming my lungs out and it was kind of amazing how cathartic that was. So, thanks for that too.

Chance: Well, I’m glad I could be of service, ma’am.

Abby: Tucker. Tucker, no, no, no, no, no. You don’t get to just blow me off by telling me you don’t have anything to do with whatever happened to my mom. I want information, and I’m gonna get it.

Tucker: You do what you need to do.

Abby: You know, considering your history with my mother, can you blame me for assuming that you’re behind whatever this blow up is?

Tucker: You know what I assumed? I assumed your mother could extricate herself from this– this abbott clan of yours and start a life with me. Look where it’s got me. Back here. Alone, humiliated and heartbroken.

[ Abby sighs ] None of which I have been known to handle gracefully.

Abby: Meaning?

Tucker: Meaning you stay the hell away from me and you tell the rest of the abbotts to do the same. You got it?

Adam: Nikki, in case I have never told you this, I have nothing but admiration for your fierce determination to protect your husband and the rest of the family. And look, I get it. I’ve certainly earned your negative opinion of me.

Nikki: Oh, you think?

[ Adam sighs ]

Adam: Look, I– I know that there’s nothing that I can say that’s gonna make you believe, uh, the words that I said to victor about this seismic change, but if you would just give me a chance, I will prove you wrong.

Nikki: No, no, no, no, no. You are not understanding me. I am done giving you chances. So, unless you walk away from your father and the family and any hope of returning to newman, I will make sure that all hell will rain down on you. No grace period, no chances it’s over. You have 24 hours to drop whatever scheme you’re plotting against victor or I swear to you, you will regret it for the rest of your miserable life.

Victoria: Please tell me that you’re not suggesting what I think you’re suggesting.

Victor: What do you think I’m suggesting?

Victoria: If you’re planning to instate adam as my co-ceo, you can count on the fact that I’m gonna walk right out that door with nicholas. You’ve busted him for the billionth time for what? A– another blackmail scheme? Again, his arrogance?

Victor: Will you calm down?

Victoria: No, I will not calm down.

Victor: Will you calm down? I do have plans for adam. They’re not what you think they are.

Victoria: Well, I’m afraid to even ask what they might be. He will start at the bottom. Work himself up the way you did.

Victoria: Dad, please. This is all just a ploy and I’m not buying it, I’m sorry.

Victor: You finished?

Victoria: No, I’m not. I– I’m not, I have another question. So, what is your big plan for my newly rehabilitated brother? If you’re not gonna hand him the co-ceo position of newman enterprises, who are you handing it to, dad?

Victor: You. Around here, we like to keep things simple and honest.

Victoria: You want me to be the co-ceo of newman?

Victor: Mm-hmm. I’ll take over the reins, you’ll be my co-ceo and nate hastings will be answering to you.

Victoria: You’re demoting me?

Victor: I’m just taking over the reins of the company again, okay?

[ Victoria scoffs ]

Victoria: But my work has been exemplary. My reliability goes without saying. I’m trustworthy to a fault.

Victor: True.

Victoria: What are you doing this for then? W– why? Just to– to prove that you can? Oh, what is it, daddy? Are you bored with your semi-retirement? You feel like you need to find another sense of purpose? But do you really think it’s a good idea to just rip the rug out from underneath me? Really?

[ Victoria scoffs ] How did I not see this coming?

[ Victoria chuckles ] Oh, my god, this is exactly the kind of unpredictable earth-shifting move that you always make. You always do this. And you know, it’s no wonder that nicholas keeps walking away because he’s learned the hard way that dedication to this company, it means nothing, absolutely nothing, unless your name is victor or adam newman.

Victor: You will still have power. You make the day-to-day decisions. But I… will retake the reins of this company that I built because I’ve noticed lately that things around here seem disjointed. So, I will take over. Is that clear?

Victoria: Well, let me tell you, this hardly feels like unity. You’re either pushing or driving everyone away!

Victor: I don’t give a damn what do you think!

Nikki: What– what’s happened now?

Audra: Is that your third or second? I think nate’s an alcoholic. I think half of genoa city is.

[ Laughs ]

Tucker: Is that seat taken?

Audra: Um, no.

Tucker: Oh, you guys are so inseparable lately. It’s beginning to get a little creepy.

Audra: Um, it’s called friendship, tucker. You should try it sometime.

Tucker: Friendship?

Audra: Yeah.

Tucker: Thank you. From what I’m told, friendship requires trust. Trust is a dangerous thing, let me tell you, ’cause it will disappoint you. It will betray you. [ Scoffs ] So, I would advise you strongly not to trust each other.

Nate: What happened to you? A week ago, you were on top of the world. Don’t tell me you managed to blow it up already.

Tucker: I haven’t blown up anything, nate. Not yet.

[ Mariah sighs ]

Devon: Hey. There you go.

Mariah: Thank you so much.

Devon: You’re welcome.

Mariah: You are a lifesaver.

Devon: I take it you had a rough night with aria?

Mariah: Uh, it’s more like aria had a rough night with me. As much as I am trying to be strong and stay calm, I don’t know. I think she’s picking up on my anxiety or something.

Devon: Mariah.

Mariah: And I– I really, really appreciate you and abby offering to let me come stay while tessa is away. I– I want you to know that. I just– I do wonder if I made a mistake saying yes.

Devon: No, no, you didn’t make a mistake at all. Just tell us whatever you need to make you and the baby feel comfortable and we’ll get it for you.

Mariah: And you guys have. You guys have. It’s– it’s not about– it’s not about making me comfortable. It’s just– I don’t really know what I was thinking, you know, taking aria away from everything. Her room and with tessa being gone, I just– I disrupted her life so much, and– and I just– I don’t know how I could have done that because I love her so much.

Devon: Of course, you do. Of course, you do. You think she doesn’t know you love her? You think she can’t feel that every second of every day? You wanna know what I really think?

Mariah: I do. Yes, please.

Devon: I think that you’re just feeling overwhelmed and you’re scared and you’re imagining the worst possible things at every turn, which I get, ’cause we all do that from time to time, but you have to remember that wherever you are, that’s home for aria. Because when she’s with you, no matter where you are, she’s safe, she’s loved, and she’s being taken care of and that means she’s a very, very lucky little girl.

[ Door slams shut ] Hey.

Abby: Hey.

[ Abby sighs ]

Esther: Oh, looks like nikki gave you an earful.

Adam: Well, you know, nikki is never shy about holding back her feelings, but yes, she did rip into me and you know what? I deserved every bit of it. Which makes me even more determined to stay on the new path.

Esther: Oh, does that new path send you right out of town? ‘Cause they might just throw you a parade, hm. When it comes to your hair, ingredients matter.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue. What can you do with sensitive skin?

Sharon: So, that leaves nick and me in charge of kirsten incorporated.

Summer: Yeah, my dad, uh, mentioned that before he headed to the east coast. He– he was saying that you’re both glad that you’re not gonna have to work with adam or deal with my grandpa’s interference anymore.

Sharon: I’d say that’s accurate on both counts.

Summer: Well, I– I’m really happy for both of you. I mean, how great is it that you’re gonna be working together again after all these years?

Sharon: I know, right? Who would’ve thought?

Summer: So, does my mom still have a place in this business or…

Sharon: Um, well, nick and i still have to discuss–

Chance: Ladies, I’m sorry to interrupt, but I have to run. I have a meeting to potentially discuss becoming the next chief of police.

Summer: What? Chance, that’s fantastic.

Sharon: I’m sure that rey is cheering you on up there right now.

Chance: Yeah, yeah, he’s definitely pulling some strings for me too. Bad news is, things might happen kind of quickly, so I got to pass on the invitation on west, but rain check, all right?

Sharon: That’s a promise.

Summer: So, my dad’s, um, covering the east coast and you’re covering the west coast?

Sharon: Yeah, that’s our plan.

Summer: Well, I, uh, wish you a very successful trip. And, um, break a leg. [ Laughs ]

[ Chance laughing ]

Abby: Mariah, you know, devon and I had the same concerns when chance and I split up and dominic was going back and forth between here and the penthouse, so I totally understand how you feel.

Devon: Yeah, and we definitely would not be offended if you wanted to take aria back home.

Abby: Yeah, but at least, just give it some thought, because we really do want you and the baby to be around people who love and support you.

Mariah: Well, thank you, I– I will definitely think about it, you know, if and when I can get my head to clear up. So, um– but no, I–

[ Baby monitor beeping ]

Devon: Oh-oh.

Mariah: And you know what, that would be my cue. So, to be continued.

[ Laughing ] Sorry, guys.

Devon: Go for it. It’s all right.

[ Abby sighs ] Okay, talk to me. You came in here like your hair was on fire. What’s going on?

Abby: It’s tucker. I know that he has done something to my mom and all he says is– is that it’s her fault.

Devon: What are you talking about, what happened with them?

Abby: I don’t know. I don’t know, but all I do know is that whatever happened between the two of them is tucker’s fault, and not my mom’S.

Devon: And that’s all he said, he just left it at that?

Abby: Well, one more thing, I mean, he said that the abbotts and I need to stay far away from him from now on.

Audra: Look, as we both know all too well, you don’t always make the best decisions when you’re upset. So, why don’t you go somewhere and meditate, okay? Just reflect for a bit and then, you’ll recognize that this is a sign from the universe telling you it has other plans for you.

[ Phone chiming ]

Nate: Excuse me. Something just came up I have to take care of.

Audra: Okay.

Tucker: I would say you used to know me. Not as much as you assumed, but to a degree, you did. Doesn’t seem like that’s the case anymore though, does it? And you’re in way over your head with him.

Audra: Things really went south with ashley for some reason, didn’t they? Look, I think I know where you’re going with this. Look, and if I’m right, I have to tell you, it’s a bad idea.

Nate: Hey. You’re upset. What happened?

Victoria: My father just demoted me.

Nate: He what?

Victoria: Yeah, yeah. He’s coming back and he’s taking charge, but I do get to be his co-ceo. Isn’t that kind of him?

Nate: Does nikki know about this? I mean, she would never approve. Is this a done deal?

Victoria: It certainly does seem that way. My father feels that without his guiding hand, the company has become weak and it’s become disjointed.

Nate: [ Sighs ] Okay, um, so, what are you gonna do about it?

Victoria: I have no idea what I’m gonna do. I cannot make a decision on something this huge when I’m so angry.

Nate: Good idea. Do nothing until you’ve had a chance to calm down.

[ Victoria sighs ] My active psoriatic arthritis

Victor: Let’s just say she didn’t take it too well.

Nikki: Well, can you blame her? When did you decide to come back to run newman anyway? Why didn’t you tell me?

Victor: I didn’t tell you because I didn’t want you to try to talk me out of it, okay? Besides that, I didn’t want you to tell victoria before I had a chance to do it.

Nikki: You know, I wouldn’t have, if you had asked me.

Victor: Yes, you would have. Had you thought I’d made a wrong move, you would have talked to me about it.

Nikki: Well, I do think you made the wrong move. I mean, not only will victoria feel undermined, but I worry about the stress of you working at newman again, what it’s gonna do to your health?

Victor: Sweetheart, has it ever occurred to you that the stress of not working at newman, of not running this company makes me unhappy? Yes, son? What can I do for you?

Adam: I would like an opportunity to clear up a misunderstanding on nikki’s part.

Sharon: Well, now, if you two, well, excuse me, I have got to get to the airport.

Chance: Yeah. You sure do. I got time to take you before my meeting.

Sharon: Oh, you don’t have to do that.

Chance: I know, but I want to.

Sharon: Okay, well, I wouldn’t want to deprive you. Thank you.

Chance: Good to see you.

Summer: Oh, good to see you.

Sharon: Bye, summer.

Summer: Bye.

Audra: Where do I get the feeling you’re planning on getting back at the abbotts by going after jabot on your own?

Tucker: What difference would that make to you? You couldn’t care less about jabot.

Audra: Right, I’m not worried about jabot. I’m worried about you. Again, as difficult as you make it sometimes, tucker, I do still consider you a friend, okay? And whether you want to accept it or not, I think you really need one right now. You know, to keep you from being your own worst enemy.

Tucker: Thanks.

[ Audra sighs ] My heart failure diagnosis changed my priorities.

[ Sharon laughing ]

Chance: After you.

Summer: Thanks.

Chance: What?

Summer: I don’t know. For not, uh, running in the other direction when you’re faced with my stormy mood.

Chance: Well, I’ve been there, I get it. So, if I can ever help ease the moment, I’m happy to do it.

Summer: So, this really was all friend to friend, right? Not friend to cop?

Chance: Friend to friend. Hey, summer. Rooting for you.

[ Summer sighs ]

[ Knocking on door ]

Tucker: Hi.

Audra: Hey.

Victor: So, son, what misunderstanding of nikki’s are you here to clear up?

Adam: It seems she doesn’t believe that I’m trying to change. That instead of me trying to hit the reset button on my life, that it is a new angle to pull another power play, and she told me to back off. But you know what, I’m glad that you both are together, so you can at least hear what I have to say. While nikki, you have every reason to doubt me. I– I’m not intimidated by you. So, let’s just get it straight. I’m not gonna back down. I’m here to show you what I can do and just how cooperatively I can fall in line, and most of all, to prove to you how wrong you are about me. And dad, I’m here to serve you. So, whatever it is you want, you just say the word and consider it done.

[ Nate sighs]

Nate: Feeling better?

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Yes. You are a miracle worker.

[ Nate laughs ] I’m thinking clearly now. I know exactly what I’m gonna do.

Nate: Oh. Care to enlighten me?

Victoria: I’m gonna fight my father on this. I’m gonna– I’m gonna find a way to prove that he is not up to the challenge of running newman again. I’ll be damned if I’m gonna let him take this away from me.
