Jack: Nikki, uh, is everything all right? It’s awfully early.

Nikki: I’m sorry to bother you. Just with everything going on, I needed to see you.

Jack: Of course. Come in.

Nikki: I was on my way to the office. I– I’m just so worried about harrison.

Jack: Whoa. Wait a minute. You’re going the office at this hour?

Nikki: I needed to get my mind off everything.

Jack: You’ve been drinking, haven’t you?

Cole: You see anything?

Victoria: I don’t know what I’m looking for.

Cole: I do. You’re hoping claire shows up.

Victoria: Yeah. With harrison. And they’ve been out all night, eating ice cream, and they just forgot to tell anyone.

Cole: Wouldn’t that be great?

Victoria: But that’s not gonna happen, is it?

Cole: I’m afraid not. You know, I should be making you go to bed instead of giving you more caffeine.

Victoria: But you know that I’m not gonna be able to sleep any more than you can. Why haven’t we heard what their demands are? I mean, what? This is like torture.

Cole: Well, it’s jordan. It’s what she does.

Victoria: Over and over and over again. Yeah. I just keep replaying in my head these conversations that I’ve had with claire, looking for some clues.

Cole: About?

Victoria: I mean, I don’t know. Did I miss something? That maybe there was some sign in claire that she hasn’t been honest with us. Maybe she was fooling us. I mean, am I– am I terrible for thinking that?

Cole: No, no. I– I’ve been thinking the same thing.

Victoria: I mean, could we be wrong about claire? Is it possible that she is the one who took harrison?

Nikki: I’m not drunk.

Jack: This isn’t how you usually present yourself first thing in the morning, especially when you’re on your way to the office.

Nikki: Well, you don’t look so hot yourself, and I’m not accusing you of being drunk.

Jack: I am merely concerned, nikki.

Nikki: I’ve been up all night. I am worried sick.

Jack: Well, we’ve been up all night here, too. Some have dozed off, some just trying to get some rest.

Nikki: I assume there’s no update or you would have called?

Jack: No, I’m afraid not.

Nikki: This is all because I let jordan live. I should’ve watched her die and not called 911. This is all my fault.

Jack: You have got to stop blaming yourself. And stop lying to me. Last night at the party, you told me any urge to drink had disappeared. Well, clearly it’s back. No judgment, I get it. But lying to me doesn’t help anything. You said you want to talk. Let’s go somewhere and talk.

Diane: Jack? Nikki, what are you doing here?

Traci: What’s happening? Has something happened?

Phyllis: Wait a second, harrison was kidnapped? Wait, what happened?

Nick: How did this happen? Why didn’t you come to us sooner?

Summer: I don’t know. Because I thought that I would’ve heard something by now, but I just– I couldn’t sit around the abbott house any longer. Everybody went to sleep. I– I don’t even know how. They told me to go sleep in harrison’s room, but I just– I couldn’T. I couldn’T.

Phyllis: Okay, I’m– I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. Here.

Summer: No, mom. Mom, I can’T. If you do that, I’m gonna cry again.

Phyllis: Okay.

Summer: And I just can’T.

Nick: Where are we with the search? What’s the next step?

Summer: That is the worst part. We’re just waiting for more instructions from that psychopath, claire.

Phyllis: Look, I– I’m sorry, what kind of instructions? Like ransom? Or–

Summer: I don’t know. Her text to kyle was vague. All she said was that she has harrison and that kyle and I have to help jordan get out of town safely, ’cause she doesn’t trust the newmans to do that.

Nick: And help how?

Summer: Details to follow, was all she said. I just– I can’t even believe that this is real. It can’t be real. Like, my son is in the hands of two monsters.

Phyllis: Okay, wait a second. Who’s jordan? How come I don’t know about this jordan person, and why is it that you two know and I don’t?

If you have chronic

kidney disease you can reduce

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Traci: Seriously, has something new happened?

Diane: Any news about harrison?

Jack: I haven’t heard from security, the police, or the kidnappers. There’s a police detail outside still, but they’ve told me the gcpd has been unlucky in tracing claire’s phone.

Diane: Does victor’s team have any news?

Nikki: I–

Jack: When victor and I spoke last night, he was here, and we promised each other we’d be in touch if anything changed. There’s been no news.

Traci: This must be awful for your family, too. How are you holding up?

Nikki: Not great. Jack, I– I would like to take you up on that offer to talk privately.

Jack: Why don’t we go to the terrace?

Diane: Wait, hang on. Before you go, how’s kyle? He was still up pacing the house when I must have fallen asleep.

Jack: Well, I’ve finally talked him into lying down, convinced him he needed some rest. The state he was in, I don’t think he got much.

Diane: Did you?

Jack: About as much as you got. I won’t be long.

Traci: Okay, why don’t I go make us some coffee, and you can tell me what that was all about.

Diane: Oh, thanks, traci, but I really don’t think I want anything right now.

Ashley: Good morning.

Traci: Hey. How are you feeling?

Jack: Please know, when I confronted you earlier, that was not an accusation. I am your sponsor. I am your friend. But you’ve gotta be straight with me. I can’t help you if you refuse to be honest.

Nikki: Okay, you’re right. I did drink. I– I just couldn’t resist the urge this time. All that strength I had at the party, that was gone in an instant, as soon as I realized jordan had harrison.

Jack: Thank you for telling me that. Look, not that the how matters, but do you have some more vodka hidden somewhere? Do we have to get rid of the temptation?

Nikki: You can search me if you want. You know how resourceful I am. If I want it, I will find it. So… I couldn’t sleep and I thought I would go for a drive just to clear my head. And I– I swear, that– that was my only intention. Well, then I passed a bar. You know, open all night. So, the next thing I know, I’m sitting on a stool ordering a drink. And then another one. And then somehow I was able to stop myself and come here.

Jack: I’m glad you did.

Nikki: I just hate being so damn weak. I mean, god, when I saw that neon sign, I thought, “oh, oh, salvation,” you know? As if alcohol could make my anxiety and my anger go away. Of course, it won’T. It– it just makes it worse, and I know that. So, why do I keep doing this to myself and to the people that I love? And they are under the same amount of pressure that I am? The last thing you need is to be dealing with this.

Jack: No crisis is going to keep me from being your sponsor. This is what I signed up for. And I am incredibly proud of you and incredibly relieved that you came here.

Phyllis: Why is it I’m just hearing about those two psychopaths?

Summer: I didn’t know about jordan and claire until very recently, either.

Phyllis: And– and you, we– we– we had a real talk, and you failed to tell me that that– that jordan person, she poisoned your whole family. And she stabbed you, and she escaped twice.

Nick: I just don’t know why claire would do this. She was so happy at the party last night, like genuinely thrilled to be a part of this family. Why do it? What could she possibly gain from this?

Phyllis: The only thing that matters to me right now is that harrison gets home safe.

Nick: Yes, of course, he is the number one priority.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Nick: But still–

Phyllis: Still what? I mean, I can’t imagine that anything is more important than harrison coming home.

Nick: Look, victoria just got her daughter back after all these years. For this to happen, she’s got to be devastated.

Victoria: I want to believe with my whole heart that claire’s been honest with us. And that she truly has made all of this progress and that she loves being our daughter, but, I mean, summer came at us so hard with those accusations. Maybe that was just our– our nature of response.

Cole: To protect claire, to defend her, because we know her and we love her. But now you’re asking that if we were to look deep down, that all of this is true?

Victoria: I don’t know. I’ve been up all night wondering if it’s possible. Maybe nick’s early hesitation and adam’s nonstop warnings about claire… I mean, what if they were right? What? She went to the abbott house. She was alone with harrison and now they’re both missing.

Cole: You really want to do this?

Victoria: Don’t we have to?

Cole: Okay. If– if I were looking from the outside, I’d have to say that claire looks guilty too.

Victoria: But why would she do it?

Cole: I suppose to help jordan.

Victoria: You see, that’s– that’s where it all falls apart for me. I mean, she’s worked so hard to get past this pain that jordan caused in her life. And she was so happy to move in here. She couldn’t wait. Why would she turn her back on that?

Cole: Listen, I know this makes no sense. But growing up with my mother, you cannot believe how manipulative she was. How she hid all of her instability from me and from the rest of the world. Claire grew up with the exact same thing with jordan. She only saw jordan’s point of view, and she was just a kid. Jordan was the only adult in her life. Claire had to go along to survive.

Victoria: That sounds awful. It’s so lonely.

Cole: Well, if it was anything like me, claire grew up having to walk on eggshells. Feeling like it was up to her to have to manage jordan’s moods. To stop her from raging and lashing out and to humor her just to keep the peace. I mean, this urge is probably pretty deep.

Victoria: Maybe it was harder for her to break out of that grip than we knew.

Cole: I just can’t help but go back to what she said last night.

Victoria: She said that it was the best night of her life. That felt so real.

Cole: It was like she finally felt what life could be like. She finally felt like she was part of a family, the newmans, but more importantly, you and me. We gave her love, and she gave it back. I felt that. I saw it. And she didn’t want to be part of that darkness anymore. I have to believe that.

Victoria: I’ve never wanted to believe anything more in my whole life. Looking for a smarter way to mop?

Ashley: I’m feeling a little fuzzy-headed and, um, a little shaky, actually. Like, I just– I don’t know, I need to get my bearings, I guess.

Traci: Well, how did you sleep?

Ashley: Pretty well. I mean, the last thing I remember is saying goodnight to you.

Diane: How much of last night do you even remember? Well, no, it’s– it’s okay. Go ahead. I don’t care about the things you said.

Ashley: What do you mean?

Diane: Well, it was intense, and you were upset, and you lashed out.

Ashley: At you?

Traci: At all of us.

Jack: First things first, call victor. Tell him you are safe. He will be worried sick, especially with jordan around.

Nikki: Yeah, you’re right. Okay, done.

Jack: Knowing that you are safely here will give him peace of mind.

Nikki: Jack, whatever happens today, I cannot drink.

Jack: You left that bar, you came here. You’re making the right choices.

Nikki: Victor’s gonna be busy with his team trying to find harrison. Victoria is frantic about claire. Summer is beside herself. I wonder if she’s spoken to nicholas. My– my whole family is in turmoil again. And I– I need to be strong, able to help them, but I can only do that if I’m sober.

Jack: Okay, but don’t put too much pressure on yourself. You only have one person you need to be sober for, you.

Nikki: I am doing it for me. The most important thing in the world to me is to be there for my family, especially if, god forbid, things get even worse.

Jack: No, no, no, don’t start spinning worst case scenarios. It’s only gonna add to your stress.

Nikki: I can’t help it. I’m the one who got us here. First by letting jordan live, and then in my arrogance, thinking that I could lure her out of hiding the night of our anniversary party. Well, that did work, but now she has kidnapped our harrison. The poor little guy, he must be so terrified. All because I was determined to confront her.

Jack: You are not responsible for the actions of a psychopath. We also don’t know that this is jordan’s doing. This could well be claire’s doing.

Nikki: Oh, my god, well, then that’s even worse because that would mean that I made the same mistake twice in trusting her.

Jack: Do not think like that. You didn’t cause this. Victor and i are working together. How often does that happen? We are a force. We will be able to fix this. We will get harrison back home, and we will see to it that the people responsible for this are punished.

Ashley: I was lashing out at you? I’m so sorry. What– what did I say?

Traci: It doesn’t matter, ashley. I– I know you didn’t mean anything by it.

Diane: Yeah, you weren’t yourself. We know that.

Ashley: What does that mean? I mean, who was I if I wasn’t myself? Why can’t I remember any of this?

Traci: I don’t know, ashley. I don’T.

Ashley: It’s like there’s just this big, blank space in the evening, and I– I don’t know. I just– I woke up so confused, and… I’m scared. I want– I want to get some help. And I don’t mean, like, later. I want it right now. I need the help today.

Traci: Okay, that’s– that’s good because we’re waiting for a confirmation call for an appointment for this morning.

Ashley: We are?

Traci: Yes.

Diane: Yes, with one of the doctors that sharon recommended. She’s going to get you an appointment as soon as possible.

Ashley: I kinda remember sharon being here. She showed up right before I went to bed, right?

Traci: Yes, jack had called her.

Ashley: Okay. Okay.

Kyle: Hey, um, has there been any word?

Diane: No, I’m sorry. I’m afraid not. Honey, did you get any sleep?

Kyle: Yeah, I– I can sleep when this is over.

Ashley: What’s going on?

Traci: Um, harrison is sick, and he’s with summer.

Ashley: Oh, no.

Traci: And she’s taken him to the doctor.

Ashley: I’m so sorry.

Kyle: Yeah, um, I need to check in with summer right now.

Diane: Yeah, that’s, uh, that’s a good idea. Why don’t I– why don’t I get you something to eat? More coffee?

Kyle: Yeah.

Diane: Listen, he’s gonna be okay. I’m so sorry.

Did you know…

Cole: You need your energy. We both do if we’re gonna get through this day.

Victoria: I can’t eat. I can’t stop replaying every interaction that I’ve had with claire. Do you remember when she first told us that she was our daughter?

Cole: Yeah, at the lake house.

Victoria: And we denied it. Adamantly.

Cole: Yeah, well, it’s because she poisoned us.

Victoria: Yeah, but even after that, when she was in jail, we still didn’t believe her.

Cole: Well, we had reason for that. We thought she had died, and we hadn’t learned the lie.

Victoria: But what if that harsh interaction left an impression on her? What if it caused a wound so deep that she couldn’t get over it?

Cole: But the minute that we got the dna results, we were all in with helping her.

Victoria: But was it too late? I mean, in her mind, that we were rejecting her again? And prove jordan right? That we didn’t want her to begin with?

Cole: Well, she– she might have felt that way at first. But after she did all of that work with the doctors–

Victoria: But did she really? I mean, did she? Or was that just an act? Did we push her too fast? Did we take her out of the hospital before she was ready?

Cole: I have all of the same questions buzzing through my head. But we can’t believe them. We can’t listen to them. She’s our girl. She is our miraculous, resilient daughter. And even though we didn’t raise her, that doesn’t mean that we don’t know her.

Victoria: She came to us full-grown. She was a young woman with adult problems, and then some. We didn’t– we didn’t just have to play catch up with her. I mean, we had to help her deal with a lifetime of being fed hate and lies.

Cole: Yeah, and we succeeded at that. I know that. And the doctors know that.

Victoria: But what if we failed?

Cole: We still don’t know exactly what we’re dealing with here. Or to what extent claire is actually involved.

Victoria: I’m trying, all right? I’m trying to cling on to some sort of hope.

Cole: You know, I’ve heard something else about this parenting business. That when your kids are in trouble, you have to eat to keep up your strength. So, let’s do it for her. ‘Cause whatever the day brings, I’m pretty sure that she’s gonna need us.

Summer: Victoria refuses to believe that claire did this.

Nick: You saw her?

Summer: Yes, I went to the tack house last night looking for claire. I got into it with victoria and cole and grandma and grandpa. They want to blame it all on jordan, but there is no way that claire is innocent in all of this.

[ Phone ringing ] Kyle, did you get word?

Kyle: No, nothing yet. I just want to check in with you, see how you’re holding up.

Summer: How do you think I’m holding up? My son has been kidnapped, and you let it happen.

Nick: Summer, um, I think you’re being a little tough on kyle. This has got to be tearing him apart, too.

Phyllis: Um, well, he left his son with a maniac, knowing her history, so it’s really on him. If this were up to me, I would have never, ever done anything like that.

Nick: Kyle is not the only person who is convinced claire has changed.

Summer: You are all wrong.

Diane: Kyle, this is not your fault. You have to know that.

Kyle: Yeah. I, um, I need to make some more calls.

Diane: Yeah, um, maybe we should do that upstairs.

Traci: Yes, okay, thank you so very much. All right, we are all set. You are confirmed for an intake appointment for this morning.

Ashley: Okay.

Traci: Do you want me to go with you?

Ashley: I don’t just want you to, I need you to. I want to know what’s going on, but I’m– I’m kind of terrified to find out.

Traci: Oh, well, don’t worry. We will find out together, okay? I’ll be right there with you. I just need a couple of minutes to get ready, and then we’ll go, okay? Be right back.

Ashley: Okay, thank you. I would’ve called yesterday.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue…

Jack: You have nothing to apologize for.

Ashley: Well, hello, nikki. What are you doing here?

Jack: Uh, we had something to discuss. How are you doing?

Ashley: I’m okay. Uh, traci and I have an appointment, and she’s getting ready.

Jack: Well, good. I know she was waiting to hear back on that one spot. Um, I’m glad that worked out.

Nikki: Is everything all right?

Ashley: Yeah, yeah. Should I be worried about you? It’s awfully early.

Jack: No need to worry about anything. Everything’s gonna work out fine.

Ashley: Yeah, well, I hope so.

Jack: Have you had anything to eat yet? You might want to have some breakfast before you take off.

Ashley: That’s a good idea. Uh, would you tell traci I’m in the kitchen?

Jack: Sure.

Ashley: Thanks.

Jack: Uh, ashley? Good luck. And give me a call after the appointment.

Ashley: Sure. Bye.

Nikki: What was that about?

Jack: What?

Nikki: Well, she seems unsteady.

Jack: She’s dealing with the emotional fallout from tucker.

Nikki: Oh, you mentioned you were concerned that she might take him back. Is that what’s happened?

Jack: Uh, no. He’s made it very clear it is over.

Nikki: And she’s upset about it?

Jack: Could we please talk about something else?

Nikki: Okay, meaning it’s none of my business. I really should go anyway because I really do have a family situation.

Jack: You don’t have to go. There are just certain things I don’t want to get into right now. You are not monopolizing my time.

Nikki: Well, thank you for that lie. But, uh, I should go to the office. Lauren is probably wondering where I am. We’re working on reports today.

Jack: Do you really think you ought to go into the office today?

Nikki: I find it to be therapeutic.

Jack: How about I drive you? You couldn’t resist the bar the last time.

Nikki: I’ll be fine. All right, all right, all right. I– I will call lauren and have her meet me at the ranch. We can work there, all right? And as you noticed, I’m really not dressed for the office.

Jack: I like this idea a lot better.

Nikki: And talking with you really did help. But I’m clearly not the only one who needs you today. Kyle and ashley, they need your attention as well, so…

Jack: Promise me you will call if you feel the urge.

Nikki: I will. Thank you.

Jack: Come on. I’ll walk you out.

Kyle: Dad.

Jack: Wait. You heard something?

Kyle: It’s another text. From claire.

Nick: Summer. I know waiting is the worst. But you have to be strong. And I can’t have you running off and doing anything risky.

Summer: That’s why I can’t just sit here. I can’t sit here when my son is the one that’s out there, at risk. And it seems like jordan and claire will do anything to torture the newmans. Harrison woke up in a strange place this morning. I mean, if he even got any sleep at all. He– he has no idea what’s going on, except for whatever lies those two psychopaths told him. I mean, he’s got to be terrified. And we don’t even know what’s gonna happen to him next.

Phyllis: Okay, listen, listen, listen, listen. Stop that. Don’t let those ideas get in your head.

Nick: We are gonna find him and we are gonna bring him home.

Summer: I’m sorry. I can’t be here. I just can’T.

Nick: Summer. Summer, please.

[ Nick sighing ]

Phyllis: We have to do something.

Nick: Damn it. Jordan is gonna pay. And this time for good.

Jack: What did she say?

Kyle: She wants safe passage for jordan. Out of the country.

Jack: Any details?

Kyle: She says ask victor for details about his last offer. What does that mean?

Jack: I have no idea. I’ll call him right now and ask. What about harrison? Any details about the exchange?

Kyle: Yeah, once jordan is safely away, she says claire will reveal harrison’s location.

Jack: Reveal? I don’t like this.

Kyle: Yeah, neither do I. And why isn’t claire asking for anything for herself? This is all about jordan’s safety. I mean, claire has to know she’s facing kidnapping charges. Dad, this doesn’t make sense.

Jack: None of this makes any sense. But we have to remember we are dealing with one, maybe two, deranged women. Look, let’s stick with victor. We’ll share the text with him and find out about this last offer. Head & shoulders bare clinically proven dandruff

Nikki: Oh, lauren, you beat me here.

Lauren: Well, I was already on my way in when I got your message to come to the ranch. Nikki, michael has filled me in. It’s insanity. I can’t believe you’ve already been up and out. You– you must be exhausted. I can’t imagine that you slept much last night.

Nikki: I didn’t sleep at all.

Lauren: You want a drink, don’t you?

Nikki: I can’t keep anything from you. I’ve already had one. Okay, two. In a moment of panic in the early hours. But I managed to stop and I went and saw jack.

Lauren: Thank goodness.

Nikki: Yeah, he was a lifesaver, as usual. Even though his family is dealing with the same situation.

Lauren: I know firsthand how draining living in constant fear is.

Nikki: Yes, of course, you do. Sheila.

Lauren: It’s unbearable. And I certainly wasn’t carrying the added burden that you are. You know what? Let’s put work on hold and– and you go to a meeting.

Nikki: Well, I– I sure could use one, but…

Lauren: Are you afraid you’re gonna miss an update with harrison?

Nikki: Well, that’s part of it. But on the way to the meeting, I pass by two bars and a liquor store and I don’t trust myself.

Lauren: Then, let me go with you.

Nikki: You would do that?

Lauren: I insist.

Victoria: Why isn’t there any news?

Cole: Well, it must mean kyle hasn’t gotten any more instructions from jordan.

Victoria: How can there be no trail on jordan? I mean, this has to be her plan. She either hijacked that truck herself or she arranged for it. And why is there no sign of her on any street traffic cameras? There’s no witnesses? Look, I know my dad’s team is working together with jack’s and the police department, but why haven’t they found anything yet?

Cole: Because jordan is ingenious. She is damn good at being evil.

Victoria: But what are their demands? What– what are they? Why is she dragging this out? This is like agony. And what’s worse is harrison– I mean, come on, he’s just a little boy.

Cole: I– I– I know, and there’s no doubt that jordan is getting some kind of pleasure out of torturing all of us and just leaving us in limbo.

Victoria: Why did she drag the abbotts into this in the first place? Why?

Cole: Because summer. Summer is– is harrison’s stepmom now, and– and she’s a newman.

Victoria: But she’s always directed her hate towards my dad and my mom and you and me and nicholas. Claire’s immediate family.

Cole: Wait, there’s just no point in trying to– to look into the logic when it comes down to jordan. She had no reason to let us believe that our baby died, but she did it.

Victoria: I have to believe that claire is innocent, which means that she might be in danger. What if jordan plans to hurt her? What if she already has? I can’t lose our daughter again.

Victor: My order to you is to keep doing it until you follow up on every lead. Is that clear?

Jack: I take it your team has come up empty as well.

[ Victor sighing ]

Victor: Yeah. All tips leading to jordan’s whereabouts have not panned out.

Jack: Okay, well we have some news.

Kyle: Another text saying we should ask you about a previous offer you made to jordan.

Jack: What does that mean?

Victor: It means that I set a trap. I offered that disaster enough money to move to the south of france and live in a chateau for the rest of her life. With a new identity.

Jack: But she somehow managed to get free?

Victor: That’s because she took her own poison. And then nikki called 911. They took her into custody and she escaped from that.

Jack: Well, apparently, your offer was enticing enough for her to pull this stunt in the hopes of finally getting it.

Kyle: Only this time, she’s using harrison for leverage.

Victor: What about claire?

Kyle: There’s been no mention of anything for claire.

Victor: Ah. That means that claire wasn’t involved in any of this. My dry eye’s made me a burning,

Traci: Okay, are you ready to do this?

Ashley: No, I’m not. I’m terrified.

Traci: Well, ashley, this doctor is gonna get to the bottom of what’s going on with you.

Ashley: That’s what frightens me, what she’s gonna say.

Traci: Well, I’ll be right there with you. And we’re all behind you, 100%. Finding out what’s wrong with you is– is the first step in getting better. It’s the first step of finding some peace.

Ashley: I know. I hope so. I hope you’re right.

Traci: Ashley, I’m so proud of you. Facing this head on.

Ashley: I don’t think you should be very proud of me. From what I understand, I said some horrible things and I would probably regret it if I could actually remember it.

Traci: I don’t care about any of that. I care about you. You’re doing the right thing. You’ve got this. And I am right there with you.

Phyllis: I want to be positive. But when I think of harrison. And then, he’s in the hands of this jordan person after everything you guys told me about her.

Nick: Look, she didn’t beat us last time. She’s not gonna beat us this time.

Phyllis: Oh, god. I just– I’m so frustrated. I want to break something. I just wanna take those bitches out, you know?

Nick: I know.

Phyllis: And then I just want to hug our daughter. I mean, our baby is so, so scared about her own baby. I just want to hold her until harrison comes back safe and sound.

Nick: We have to find her boy. And bring him home.

Kyle: I thought the same thing. This must all be jordan. If claire is a part of this, she has to know she’s blown up her life. There’s no coming back from this.

Jack: It does seem like protection for herself would be part of this bargain.

Victor: I guess there’s only one way to find out. We stand by the deal. As long as harrison is safe.

Jack: Well, that is the hitch.

Kyle: She says they’ll only release harrison once jordan’s safely away. I mean, how can we agree to that? It gives us no leverage.

Victor: Return a text to them and tell them… on my behalf, the deal stands. As long as they deliver harrison to us safely.

whoa I hope I’m not interrupting anything. No, no, no, no, no. God. I could use the break. You wouldn’t think that protecting a community would require so much paperwork. It’s been a while. Been in the room at the same time. Have you missed my chair-stacking abilities? No. Still — still not good. No. I just, uh, I haven’t seen you. Have you been hitting another meeting or… well, I can give you a whole lot of reasons why, but it all boils down to other things taking precedence. It happens. I know that people slack off from time to time, but if I continue to do it in this way for this long… I may risk everything. Dinner has arrived. Good. I did not feel like cooking tonight. Aww. I feel you, but I’m glad we could help. How are you? Great. And you? How’s your day? I’m fine. Finn not home? Not yet. The babysitter just left. What are we having for dinner? We are having turkey burgers, fries, and salad. And your dad better hurry up, or he’s gonna miss out. We’ll have fries — if it’s okay for me to use finn’s air fryer. Well, of course it is. Just be sure to tell him how much you love it. It’ll make his day. Got it.

[ Coughs ] Why don’t you guys go unload the stuff in the kitchen and get started? Help yourselves to whatever you need in there. Better show them where everything is. Good thinking.

[ Laughs ] Are you okay with a turkey burger? Uh, if you’re asking me if I’m gonna be able to hold it or will I fumble it all over myself from the table and…half the floor… your guess is as good as mine. I was asking you if you’re in the mood for it. Oh. Sorry. YH. Burger sounds great. Good. And for the record, whether you hold it, drop it, or wear it, it’s still gonna taste really good.

[ Both chuckle ] What’s going on with jake? Oh. Never mind. I think I know. The smells coming out of that kitchen are making me nuts. I cannot wait to dig into this very green… chicken. I was pretty free with the spinach. I went with our honeymoon theme — chicken florentine. Italy. You are so sweet for doing this. How’d I get so lucky? First you. Now this. Okay. I’ve made dinner before. It’s not that big of a deal. And I love you for doing this. And I love all the extra work that you did in the kitchen to make this happen. I love you for selling your truck, but I hate the fact that you don’t have it anymore.

Look. The truck was just A… silly guy thing. I had no idea you were so attached to it. Attached to you. You love that truck. No. I love you. Besides, it’s not like I need the truck to haul lumber or bales of hay or anything like that. Whatever you say. Brook lynn…did you have a picture in your mind of you standing in the truck bed, holding a “just married” sign, with tin cans hanging from the bumper? I do now, and I would’ve loved that. Though, at the moment, I would much rather lucy coe dangling from that bumper. Yeah. I, uh, saw what happened on “home & heart.” I’m sorry that video launch of deception’s new cream was so…problematic. If sasha hadn’t come when she did, we’d still be hearing about the trials and triumphs of lucy coe. Yeah. Sasha was pretty great. Because she’s gracious and — and charming, and she made it clear to the viewers that they should buy deception’s new cream. Lucy made it clear to the viewers that she needs therapy. Got a little better when scott got there. He at least mentioned the cream. The “home & heart” new product launch w-was supposed to be another step in deception’s financial rebound. Well, I’m on track to get a raise at the pcpd’s next fiscal year. You’re on track? You should just get it right now. No one’s better at their job than you are, and you work harder than almost anyone. Well, if I do get the raise… …I think that we should invest the money in some property, build a little forest getaway, and then maybe that truck will come in handy. You realize we don’t have to wait, right? We could buy five new trucks, five forest getaways. We could probably buy five forests. Brook lynn, do we need to have the money talk again? As in your family has all the money and I have a decent government salary. We probably should. But first I just need to take a couple bites of this gorgeous green chicken to fortify myself. I don’t know if gregory told you, but I am so sorry. I’m not gonna be able to make chase’s wedding. Oh. I’m sorry to hear that. Did you get a better offer? I got a different offer. Who? Diane has made it her mission to get my disbarment vacated. Well, that’s green news. It’s shocking news. I would not have thought after all this time. I mean, the chances of them wanting to review my disbarment is…I thought, highly improbable. Till it became not so improbable. It became real. I have a hearing with the appellate division of the new york state supreme court in manhattan the day after chase’s wedding. But I have to be there 24 hours in advance. I’m sure chase and brook lynn, they’ll be disappointed, but, um, they’ll be thrilled by the reason. Getting a hearing does indicate that the court feels there’s sufficient grounds to take a second look. Hey, if anybody deserves a second chance. I don’t know about that. Why would you say that? Because maybe I got the justice I deserved the first time, when the court smacked me down. I don’t know about the court smacking you down, but you’re doing a pretty good job of doing it yourself. I know I didn’t suborn perjury and I didn’t perjure myself, but I did lie to the medical board, and i was under oath. So when the disciplinary committee took action, I didn’t think it was appropriate to contest it. I get it. You needed to punish yourself. When we don’t think we’re worth saving, we don’t even try. I don’t think that either one of us was, uh, consciously trying to impede the pursuit of justice. Uh, I’m just saying that, well, I know I’m guilty of — of not seeing clearly what was right in front of me. I’m sorry. This has been weighing on me for a long time. I think you’re gonna have to be a bit more specific. I’m talking about my friendship with sonny. Sonny. Oh. Mm. Yeah. I-I know you two have a history. Yes. Yeah.

[ Chuckles softly ] Well, luke and sonny were friends. The club that luke owned was originally owned by sonny. Paradise lounge. Yeah. Such an ironic name in retrospect. To say that it was a disreputable place would be a compliment. I think eventually they just shut it down and then luke and sonny, uh, turned that space into luke’s blues club, and…they really bonded over that. They became very close, and since then, sonny has done a lot of things to help a lot of people that I love. He did for robin. He was there for my daughter in ways I-I couldn’t be. Yeah. He’s done a lot of good. He really has. Especially for the hospital. And the thing is… I really believed that, uh, we had a bond. I did too. He listened to me… throughout that whole… you know, when the — the double-agent thing came out. I considered him a friend,albeit an unconventional one. “Considered.” Past tense? An individual walked through this door into my office and told me flat out that sonny had ordered him to kill someone. Sonny ordered a hit. I guess — yeah.

[ Sighs ] Wow. I knew in theory what sonny did for a living, but, um, I guess I didn’t allow myself to think about what it meant in practice. He’s charming and generous… and has decent impulses, no question. But charm has no moral weight, and impulse is… it’s not character. I feel so ashamed now that… that it took me so long to wake up and — and see him for everything that he is. Laura, for a time, I felt like he and I, we shared this understanding of darkness that no one else shared. I mean, what — I didn’t allow myself to play out what that was, what that actually meant. Okay.

[ Exhales deeply ] Well, my friendship with sonny was never a secret. So I’m just here to say that if you ever felt inclined to go easy on sonny because of me, I’m telling you now, don’T.

I realize now that sonny has a very dark side, one that he can keep hidden from most people. But I got the chance to see what that side was capable of when I saw my brother lying in that hospital bed and I realized that sonny is a violent and dangerous time bomb that could go off whenever he decides that it’s necessary. Yeah. That sounds about right. And I know that cyrus has done the same and probably a lot worse. But you know what? Cyrus is not as skilled as sonny at not getting caught. Right. Well, he’s not a generous philanthropist that has woven himself into the very fabric of this city for the past few years. I know. I… but I am still struggling with knowing what he is capable of doing, that he could do what he did to my brother with just his bare hands. And in church. You know, I-I talked to cyrus, and he said that he would not testify against him and there were no other witnesses. And I knew that sonny would lie about whatever charges I filed against him. And as we’re learning, sonny is really good at lying. Yeah. Okay. I think, uh, I think I’ll be going. Okay. Thank you for coming in. Yeah. I appreciate it. Thank you. Uh, so if, uh, the opportunity presents itself for you to pursue this case… I will be ready. You can count on it. Thank you.

[ Door opens ] My wine guy had several choices to pair with tonight’s dinner, but I chose the pinot grigio because it’s italian. Like the chicken. And the woman I love. I love you too, and I love this wine. And I think I’ve had enough of it to, um… to have the money conversation. So, tracy and I talked. Hold on. Let me get a pen. Whoa, whoa. For what? So I can sign the prenup that tracy drew up and we can get back to the wine. Drink the wine. There is no prenup. It’s — it’s fine, okay? I’m fine with signing it. I thought about it, and — and I want you to feel safe. I do feel safe. I do too. Which is why I’m safe saying that nothing is ever going to happen to our marriage, which means that this prenup means nothing. So we will put it in a drawer, and we’ll pull it out in 50 years, and we’ll see how much my signature changed. We both know your signature changes depending on your mood. Remember when — when your team lost and you had to sign the pizza delivery guy’s receipt? The pen almost went through his hand.

[ Laughs ] There is no prenup. You got, um, another bottle, didn’t you? Okay. How about this? If for some reason our marriage falls apart, then I walk away with nothing more than I brought to the marriage. I appreciate the offer. Ah. But you’re not gonna take it. Because according to brook lynn’s teachings, you never take the first offer.

[ Laughs ] I couldn’t be prouder. Look. Our marriage isn’t gonna fail. I know it, and you know it. So the conversation we really need to be having isn’t about what happens if we split up. It’s about what happens when we don’T. I’m glad diane’s in your corner, ’cause it doesn’t sound like you are. I’m just being cautious. I do have a history with me. History’s in the past. It’s done. My apologies to you and mr. Faulkner. But the past is not dead. The past isn’t even in the past. It’s right here. And that side of me that is capable of doing horrible things or self-sabotaging may be in the back seat right now, but it’s always around there, lurking somewhere. You and I have talked about this, right? We’re wired the same way, and sometimes that makes us always focus on the negative things first, all right? And then the good things, they all come in, like, tenth place. But that doesn’t mean they’re to be ignored, all right? Some really wonderful things have come out of your past. My girls. Best thing that ever happened to me. Nothing even comes close. You know, I often refer to them as little roombas because they’re always wandering here and there and everywhere. But eventually they always get right back on track and come back to mom. See, you must have done a lot of things right to end up with three daughters as great as the ones you have. Mm. You know, other than my girls, I feel like the most good that I’ve ever done in the world has been through my legal career, because I’ve been able, in some very small way, to move the needle of justice forward. And I want to do that again. I want to feel good like that. Yes! Yes, and if the court case goes the way it should, you will. All right, so I just need to not get in my own way and stay sober. And you and I both know that if I lose this case, I will want to drink to console myself, and if I win it, I’m gonna want to celebrate. Yeah. Life doesn’t make it easy, does it? You know, molly is — is already worried about me. If I slip up again, my girls may be done with me. You’re — you’re not gonna let that happen. I’m here. I will be here tomorrow and the next day and the next day and the next day. And if I’m not here and you’re here, you better call me out on it. Okay. Alexis, I’m watching my dad die slowly before my eyes. And after treating him poorly for most of his life, I have a few months to make up for it. So I’ll be there for you if you promise the same for me. Always, my friend. Mm! Thank you.

How’s it going in there?All good. It would be great, though, if aiden could make the cheese fries instead of regular ones. I’m all for it if it’s okay with your mom. You think I’d say no to cheese fries? Is your brother helping? He was, but now he’s on his phone. Okay. Uh, well, just yell if you guys need any — we got this. Okay.

[ Laughs ] It ‘s none of my business,but I’m guessing that the, uh, tension level has risen a few notches in your house since jake’s father came back in the picture. Yeah. Actually, I was — I was hoping to talk to you about this. I know there was a time when finn rejected you. And even though the situations are — are completely different, there is a form of that happening with jake. He doesn’t want to talk about jason. He — he doesn’t want to acknowledge his name. He’s so, so angry. And obviously you didn’t just up and leave your kid without any notice whatsoever. So I don’t know. Maybe you — maybe you don’t have any advice to offer. Sounds like jake’s not the only one who’s angry.

[ Chuckles softly ] No, he’s not. Believe me. But he is the one that’s most crippled by it. Sometimes I think that anger is just our way of punishing ourselves when the one we really want to hurt is someone we love and can’t let go of. I can’t tell you how much I loved finn’s mom. Watchi ng her die was the worstthing that ever happened to me. Worse than waking up now, each morning, to discover what else als has stolen from me. But then I met jackie. She was so young and vibrant, and she made me feel alive again. Maybe it — it was a rebound. But we loved each other, and I wanted be in love again so badly. It didn’t feel wrong to me. It didn’t feel like I was being unfaithful to the memory of my late wife. But that’s how finn saw it. It’s the way he had to see it. Otherwise, he would be being disloyal to his mother. And, oh, the anger that he channeled my way.

[ Chuckles softly ] But like anything that hot and intense, it had to eventually exhaust itself. And it did. And what remained is the loving father-son relationship that you see now. So maybe j ake just needs to lethis anger burn itself out so he can get to his own now. You know that anything you or your father need, I’ll be there. Thank you. I just want to let you know that I-I saw gregory recently and he didn’t look very good. I know. I know, and, uh, like you, I’m struggling to hang on to my sobriety while I reflect on my past. Alexis, I was not a good son. My dad did nothing but good, and I… I treated him very badly. You’ve changed. You’ve made amends. You’re not the same person anymore. Yeah. But he knows where I live. Now my dad, he’s turned inward, you know? He won’t let me go to any of his doctor’s appointments with him. He won’t let me see any of his test results. And all he does is give me these glowing reports about how well he’s doing, and all I have to do one look at him and I know he’s lying. Yeah. Well, you being a doctor and his son, he’s — he’s picked the wrong guy to try to bluff, huh? He’s holding himself together by sheer force of will so he can make it to chase’s wedding. It means a lot to him. It does. It’s good, right? Chase is the good son. I’m the one that… I’m the one that wronged my dad. And I turned it around in my head to make myself right. It takes a lot of time and energy to convince yourself that everyone else is the problem, not you.

[ Laughing ] Yeah, I know the syndrome. I know. I stay up at night. I think about all the time I lost with my family, the lost days that became lost years. I… I don’t sleep much anymore. Nobody can punish us like we can. My dad was devoted to my mom. He was there for her. When she died so young, I… I was just angry. I was angry at everyone. And so when he met jackie and she helped him move on and she made him happy, I found this way to… punish him for it. Sleeping with her before the wedding, before their wedding, I… what kind of son does that? My mother kept us away from the quartermaine money. I mean, she knew it was there, but she had a pretty good career as a music manager. The quartermaine money wasn’t always a gift. Was ned around? Yeah, enough. Pretty sure he paid child support. It’s not like I-I ever felt like I didn’t have two parents. And my grandparents, my aunts, my uncles, my cousins, all the people who might have been cousins, they were always around. So that’s why the guest list at our wedding was so long.

[ Laughs ] And I only invited the ones that I like. Some of my relatives had a house. Some of them got one gifted to them in a will. But none of us were rich. We were comfortable in bensonhurst. My upbringing was probably a lot quieter than yours, but we were pretty middle class too. I want that kind of life for our kids — a life full of — of love that makes them feel safe. And look. I know there are gonna be bumps along the way. But they will be surrounded by family who will take them by the hand and help them. You don’t think there’ll be parts of the family that want to take their hand and put a bunch of money in it? Oh, there definitely will be. You know my family. That’s obviously gonna happen. But there’s two of us, and we can fend them off. And yeah, it’ll be a little tricky to have a normal life, especially in port charles. But it’s not impossible. If we’re together, nothing’s impossible. And there you go. You know, I think what granny was really after with that prenup, it wasn’t about protecting my trust or my inheritances from you. It was about protecting us from what the insanity of that kind of money can bring. I never thought I’d say this, but… I think tracy has the right idea.

That’s what I think, and I thinkthat tracy would agree. We’re young, we’re healthy, we have careers that we love, and between us, we’re comfortable. I’m with you so far. Okay. We take the interest from your trust fund and any other funds that you have and we put it into a savings account for our kids. You know, it’ll be for education and…shoes. Exactly what kind of shoes are you thinking? It — I — it sounds good. It’ll be a safety net — in case something comes up. Like a shoe emergency. Or a medical emergency. Or if we want to help out a loved one. And I’m sure there’s charities that we’d like to support. I like the sound of that. The only thing I care about our kids inheriting is the good stuff that we bring to their lives — honesty, compassion, a strong work ethic. You bring so much more than that. And, you know, granny told me that, um, no one would want to live off their spouse’s money, which was a very weird thing for her to say, considering all the guys in her life did just that. I never understood her taste in men. But I do understand where she’s coming from. I always want to feel like I can serve and protect this family. You see what I did there? Yeah, I did. And I think that I bring value to our marriage. I mean, I can sing. Yeah, you can. I can cook. I can attest to that. I can catch the bad guys. Some might even say that it’s your dollars against my collars. I will never say that. I ask you to meet, and then I keep you waiting. I’m so sorry. I’m always happy to wait for my sister. And I used the time to try to figure out the reason behind your unprecedented invitation. And what’d you come up with? Nothing.

[ Laughs ] I decided just to be grateful for the chance to spend some time with you. Well, good. I’m glad we’re doing this, then. Okay. You’re looking well. Oh, t-thank you. I-I’m feeling good. I’m getting stronger every day. I-I try to look at my time at G.H. As just an extended spa stay. You’re joking, uh, but what happened to you in that church was no joke, cyrus. And it’s in the past. Well, I’ve been thinking about it an awful lot lately. And if you chose not to press charges against sonny because of me and because of my friendship with him, then I want you to reconsider.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Upbeat music ]

Rj: Who the hell do you think you are sleeping with my girlfriend?

Zende: You deserve to be angry, but I did not, I did not take advantage of luna.

Luna: Rj’s gonna kill zende.

Poppy: Let’s try to take a deep breath.

Luna: No, rj won’t pick up. I– I keep trying, but he won’t, he won’t text me back or answer my calls.

Poppy: Honey, I am sure he’s really upset.

Luna: They’re cousins, mom. They’re family. I just– I don’t want him to do anything that he’ll regret.

Poppy: The night that you spent with zende, the misunderstanding, I understand you needed to tell rj. You had to tell him the truth.

Luna: Rj deserved to know.

Poppy: I just wish… well, maybe I can explain to him.

Luna: No, mom, I– I told him exactly what happened and… I’ve never seen him so hurt.

Hope: I just sent the one of you and beth at the gorilla exhibit.

Liam: Oh, good, with my eyes closed. That’s great. Look, see, it looks like I’m trying to take a nap, standing up. Why? And of course, beth is the cutest she’s ever looked in her entire life, so that’s perfect.

Hope: Well, I mean, she is very photogenic, so.

Liam: Yeah. You know, it’s funny, I was gonna say she gets that from her mother, except check out that disaster.

Hope: Oh, no. I mean, what– I– I think I was trying to impersonate a wombat here, maybe, just a little.

Liam: You were, because we would literally do anything to make our daughter laugh. There it is.

Hope: And beth was smiling the entire time.

Liam: So, success. There you go. We made a good one, didn’t we?

Hope: Yeah, the best. It was nice having the three of us together. Although, she does miss douglas. And her grandpa deacon.

Deacon: Are you alive or are you in trouble? And who the hell is sugar?

Finn: Deacon.

Deacon: Finn. Uh, were we supposed to meet?

Finn: No, I’m just– I’m picking up some takeout.

Deacon: Oh.

Finn: Well, has it hit you yet? Have you finally accepted sheila’s gone?

Poppy: Well, what did he say when you told him?

Luna: He was in shock. He felt so betrayed by me, zende, you. I mean, he accused zende of taking advantage of me, and i told him that that wasn’t the case, but…

Poppy: You’re worried he didn’t listen.

Luna: Yeah, I mean, he ran out of here so fast. I’m afraid he’s gonna go confront zende.

Zende: I know you’re pissed, rj.

Rj: You can’t even begin to know how I feel, zende.

Zende: I just need to know that luna’s okay.

Rj: Shut up. I don’t wanna hear you say her name.

Zende: Look, man, it’s my fault. It’s not hers. Don’t blame luna. Yes, it’s your fault, ’cause you’re family. And I trusted you.

Zende: I’m sorry, rj.

Rj: Stabbed in the back by my own cousin.

Liam: Well, you had to put some distance between the two of you, right?

Hope: Yeah, but it wasn’t easy. But as soon as I realized that my dad was involved with sheila, I mean, it just– it felt like the responsible thing to do.

Liam: No, it was. I mean, I’m– I’m glad that you kept beth away from deacon as long as sheila was around, but now she’s not. So, where does your relationship with deacon stand?

Finn: Obviously, you really cared about sheila.

Deacon: You know I did, finn, and so did you, even if you can’t admit it to yourself.

Finn: You’re having a hard time letting go of her. Why else would you think you saw ten toes at the crematorium? My dry eye’s made me a burning,

Poppy: Still no word from rj?

Luna: He doesn’t wanna talk to me.

Poppy: I feel horrible. I hate seeing my baby hurting so much. How could I be so irresponsible? But if I could only go back, none of this would’ve happened if it wasn’t for me, and those– those damn mints. The drugs are gone now, sweetie. I threw them all away. They caused too much damage. I’m never buying them again.

Luna: What’s done is done, mom. I mean, there’s no going back.

Poppy: I am so sorry. Your heart is breaking, and all I wanna do is fix it. I wanna make everything better. Now, I know that’s not possible, but I can talk to rj. I can try to make him understand.

Luna: Oh, my god, I can’t– I can’t take it. I– I– I need to head over to forrester.

Zende: What? Do you think I’m proud of what I did?

Rj: You got what you wanted. That’s all you’ve ever cared about, zende.

Zende: No, no. I thought that she was into it. I thought she was into me.

Rj: She was high.

Zende: I clearly didn’t know that at the time.

Rj: Yeah, right.

Zende: No, I swear. She didn’t either. It was a huge misunderstanding.

Rj: Shut up!

Zende: Please, man, let me explain.

Rj: No, I told you to shut up. I don’t want your– I don’t want your excuses.

Zende: Listen.

Rj: What?

Zende: For a second, okay? When I got back to the guesthouse, she was in my bed. I never expected her to be waiting for me.

Rj: She wasn’t!

Zende: I didn’t know that! I didn’t know that!

Rj: She thought it was me. She was out of her mind on her mother’s drugs! What the hell were you doing?

Zende: There was no, no indication that she was stoned or impaired at all. If there had been, then I would have never–

Rj: You would’ve never what? You would’ve never what, zende? You would have never slept with the woman I love? The woman I’m in a committed relationship with! You wouldn’t have done that!

Zende: I’m sorry, rj. I’m so sorry.

Liam: Listen, no offense to your dad, but I really question his judgment sometimes.

Hope: No, I– I do hear you. My father does have a tendency to make some troubling decisions.

Liam: Yeah, like falling for a psychopath.

Hope: To put it lightly. But I did hate shutting him out of my life.

Liam: I know, but your hands were tied. I mean, you were just trying to keep beth safe.

Hope: Boundaries had to be established, and I wasn’t about to put her at risk.

Liam: I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that.

Hope: Yeah. Well, I’m just glad we can put that ugly chapter behind us, and now my dad and I have a chance to start over.

Liam: Yeah, I mean, how possible is that, given everything that’s transpired?

Hope: I like to think that we have a good chance, especially now that sheila is out of the picture.

Finn: You haven’t been yourself lately.

Deacon: I lost the woman I love.

Finn: Well, there’s typical grief, but then there’s this.

Deacon: There’s this. And people like me, right? You know, we’re nuts, off the rocker. Yeah, I get it.

Finn: Look– look, sometimes, it’s normal to think that we’ve seen someone that we’ve lost. It’s a fleeting moment of hope, but it quickly fades once our brain realizes it’s impossible.

Deacon: You know what? My brain isn’t exactly getting the message, doc, because I am more and more convinced about what I saw at the crematorium.

Finn: Deacon, the way that you were talking, implying that sheila isn’t dead, it’s– it’s–

Deacon: Listen, okay, enough talk about the ten toes. All right, fine. All right, you can think I’m crazy for all I care. Let me ask you a question. Did sheila ever mention anyone else?

Finn: What do you mean?

Deacon: Like friends or, uh, I don’t know, family?

Finn: No.

Deacon: Enemies?

Finn: No, I– I mean, not anyone that you wouldn’t already know.

Deacon: Did she ever mention someone named sugar?

Poppy: Okay, just slow down.

Luna: I have no idea what could be happening between rj and zende right now.

Poppy: Hey, I get it. It is tough to sit back and wait. Your first instinct is to head over to forrester–

Luna: We didn’t even get to finish our conversation, mom. He just– he ran off and he probably won’t ever want to speak to me again.

Poppy: No. No. Rj loves you. He will realize that this was not a conscious decision, that you would never intentionally betray him or hurt him.

Luna: I can’t lose rj, mom. I– I have to get through to him.

Poppy: And you will. You will have another opportunity. But is heading over to forrester the best idea? Rj needs a little time.

Luna: I can’t just sit here and do nothing.

Poppy: Be patient. Rj will come back eventually. But if you walk in on them together, your being there could upset him even more.

Luna: I need to take that chance, mom. I have to tell him how much I love him.

Zende: I had no idea luna wasn’t herself that night. She was already in my bed. I thought she was making the first move.

Rj: She thought it was me, her boyfriend. You don’t have an excuse. Because you, you knew damn well what you were doing. ‘Cause you’ve never respected me or her or our relationship. You cannot stand here and justify to me sleeping with my girlfriend.

Hope: I don’t think I’ll ever really be able to understand what drew my father to sheila.

Liam: Not for nothing, he still seems pretty drawn to her, even after the fact.

Hope: Yeah. I think he’s just struggling to let her go, you know? I think he’s just lonely.

Liam: She must have, like, filled a void for him or something.

Hope: Well, let’s hope that’s all it was. I might have a little more sympathy for that, maybe. I mean, my mom did turn him down.

Liam: Yeah, a bunch of times. Sorry.

Hope: She always was the one that got away.

Liam: That’s what– that’s what’s so funny is like, ’cause you’ve got– you’ve got brooke logan, it’s like, up here, right? And then you’ve got sheila carter, who’s all the way, oh look, six feet under.

Hope: Okay, fine, yes. I just– all I wish is for my dad to move on. I mean, he could do so, so much better.

Liam: Yeah, like literally anyone without a 10-page rap sheet.

Hope: Yeah, that would be a nice change of pace. That would. And I– I get it. I– I– he thought they had something in common. But he couldn’t be more wrong. I mean, yes, my dad has messed up. But nowhere near the horrible things that sheila’s done.

Liam: You know, I told him the exact same thing. It’s not even close.

Hope: Thank you. But also, why are we wasting our time talking about this?

Liam: Good point.

Hope: Thanks. Yes, she’s dead. Sheila is buried. And hopefully, she will never be an issue in our lives ever again, so…

Finn: Sugar? That’s quite a name. I think I’d remember that. Why?

Deacon: All right, a while back, I was looking at sheila’s text messages. I wanted to see if there was anything unusual.

Finn: Deacon, geez. You, listen, sheila, she’s gone. You have got to start coming to terms with it.

Deacon: Just please hear me out, all right? Look, I get it. You think I got a screw loose.

Finn: No, I just think you’re wasting your time looking for signs of life. Steffy killed sheila. I mean, I saw her blood on the floor with my own eyes.

Deacon: I don’t need to hear all the gory details. Just listen to me. So a while back, sheila, she kept sneaking off, right? And when I called her on it, she said she was meeting someone from her past. And now, I find this text conversation from sugar.

Finn: Okay, what– what did they say?

Deacon: It didn’t sound friendly.

Finn: I don’t know anything about anyone named sugar. And frankly, deacon, it doesn’t matter. Sheila is dead.

Hey! Asthma’s

got you going through it?

Zende: Yes, I admit that. What I did was wrong.

Rj: If it was wrong, then why did you do it? What, was it because of me? Because you were jealous of me?

Zende: No, no, man. I didn’t do it to get back at you or anything like that. Like I said, I care about luna. If you two weren’t involved–

Rj: I know. I’ve seen you trying to flirt with her for months. I– I see you, zende.

Zende: It’s my bad.

Rj: Oh, your bad? It’s– it’s your bad now?

Zende: Luna never reciprocated. We’ve just been friends.

Rj: Exactly! You both have been keeping this secret behind my back.

Zende: She was afraid of hurting you, man. You know luna. She’s the sweetest, kindest, most honest person there is. She didn’t want to lose you. Dude. Hey.

Rj: What?

Zende: She thought she was with you. I know this must be messing with your head right now. But you’ve forgiven luna, haven’t you?

Luna: Rj, we need to talk. Okay, there’s– there’s so much more that I need to say. And I– I don’t want what I did to affect your relationship. Okay, I don’t want you two fighting.

Rj: It’s too– too late.

Luna: Oh, my god.

Poppy: Zende, are you okay?

Zende: I’m fine. I was just telling rj that everything that happened was my fault.

Poppy: No, and mine.

Rj: How could you drug your own daughter?

Poppy: It was an accident. My mints got mixed up with luna’S. I had no idea she took them.

Zende: None of us did. Rj, it was a huge, huge misunderstanding. And things got out of hand. But you can’t blame luna. Look at her. Can’t you see how much she loves you? Can’t you see how lucky you are? Tell her, rj. Tell luna you forgive her.

Liam: Yes, yes, exactly. Why are we even uttering her name?

Hope: It’s because sheila’s still haunting us from the grave.

Liam: Oh, my god, I hope not. And if she is, clearly we’re not the only ones. How about we make a deal? We just never speak of her again?

Deacon: Had chef throw in an extra order of meatballs.

Finn: Oh, well, thanks.

Deacon: Look, man, I’m really sorry about talking your ear off. I just– I thought maybe you could help me.

Finn: Okay, look, I have no idea who this mysterious sugar is. And frankly, it sounds like a dog’s name.

Deacon: Dogs don’t text.

Finn: Look, you’re gonna be doing your health a favor if you let this go. Stop obsessing over sheila and going through her text messages and her emails and playing private investigator. For what? Deacon, it’s pointless. You’re never gonna see sheila again, ever.

Deacon: Isn’t there just like a little part of you that wishes your birth mother was still alive?

Finn: It doesn’t matter how I feel. Just enjoy the memories. Miss her all you want. Think of her fondly, whatever. But get on with your life. I’m serious, deacon. It’s time. It’s over.

Deacon: What the hell? I saw your face. Your face and ten toes. Are you out there, sheila? Baby, are you still alive?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Jack: Back up. What do you mean harrison’s missing?

Diane: And claire took him? We just saw her at the party.

Kyle: Okay. She came by. She came by to bring harrison his lucky bunny charm. He wanted her to read him a bedtime story. Dad, she’s the first person he’s liked. First person she’s liked out of all the nannies. The first person since linda. And they were just right there. I didn’t see the harm in it, so I… dad, I– I called the police, but… no, maybe we should drive around the neighborhood.

Jack: Kyle, kyle, kyle, listen to me. Slow down.

Diane: Yeah, and take a breath. You called the police?

Jack: Tell us what happened from the beginning.

Summer: Kyle, what is this voicemail? Harrison’s missing?

Diane: Kyle, where have you looked so far?

Kyle: I– I checked all over the house, but he… he’s gone. He– he’s gone. They’re both– they’re both gone. Claire must have taken him.

Summer: No, no, it can’t be. Harrison loves to play hide and seek. I mean, did you check under his bed?

Kyle: Yes, I checked all of his favorite hiding places. Dad, I wish this was a game, but it’s not. Damn it! Damn it! Why did I trust her with him?

Diane: Okay, so you think claire took him? And that he’s–

Jack: Have you tried calling claire?

Kyle: Yes, about 10 times, but it keeps going to voicemail.

Diane: All right, you guys, there has to be an explanation. This can’t be a kidnapping.

Summer: That’s exactly what this is. His bed’s still made. All of his favorite things are still there. How could you let this happen? How could you let that psychopath take our son?

Jack: Don’t panic.

Summer: She poisoned my family, jack, and now she has our son.

Jack: Summer, we don’t know that yet.

Diane: I know you’re upset. We all are, but jack’s right. Panicking won’t help us figure out what happened.

Summer: Kyle left harrison alone with her and now they’re both gone. What more do we need to know?

Diane: Well, pointing fingers won’t help either. We need to all work together to figure this out.

Jack: Son, talk us through this, step by step.

Kyle: Okay, um, harrison, he left his lucky charm at the party. That bunny figurine he has.

Jack: We know it well.

Kyle: Then you know he was beside himself without it. Claire, she showed up with it. Apparently, she spotted it at our table. After we left, they talked about it at the party. She knew how much it meant to him. She had called his lucky bun, so she brought it over.

Summer: Wait, she left the party before I did. She could have easily given it to me.

Kyle: Um, harrison, he was upstairs. We were chatting down here. And then, he came down. He was ready for bed. And when he saw that she had brought the lucky charm, it was like the whole night was saved. I mean, he was on the verge of a meltdown before. I was worried how I was going to get him to fall asleep without it and then… he– he was so grateful. He asked her to read him a bedtime story.

Summer: And you let her?

Kyle: Yes, I didn’t see the harm in it. I mean, they were up there and I– I– I was right there. But then when I went up to check on them, they were gone.

Summer: Kyle, you left her alone with harrison, knowing her history, knowing how I feel about her, all because harrison thinks she’s funny and she brought back his toys?

Kyle: Yes! Yes! Because he likes her! And she went out of her way to bring him that stupid bunny charm. He should have seen them talking about charms. It was sweet. And I knew ashley and traci were upstairs. And then when I went up to check on harrison, tell him goodnight, he and claire were gone. I never in a million years thought that she’d take—

Summer: No, you didn’t think, did you?

Kyle: No.

Summer: Has anybody even called the police?

Kyle: I called them. The police are on their way.

Diane: All right, kyle. I know you’ve searched the house, but what about the property? I mean, could harrison have taken claire out back to look at his tree fort or something?

Kyle: Yes, mom, I checked everywhere. I checked inside and out, the pool shed, the garden shed.

Jack: Let’s not all jump to the worst possible outcome yet.

Summer: Jack, she’s a convicted felon. She just got out of the psych ward and now she– she has her little boy.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by… nothing makes a gathering great

Jack: Okay, our security is working with gcpd, combing the grounds for any clue as to what might have happened.

Diane: Here, honey, have some water.

Summer: I just want my son back. I want to tuck him into bed. I want to curl up next to him.

Jack: We all want that, believe me, but we have help now to figure out what happened, to find harrison. We have to trust the authorities to do their job.

Summer: Harrison thinks he’s a big kid, but he’s not. He’s so sweet and innocent still. He– he thinks that everyone in this world is good, but there are bad people out there who do bad things, even if they seem harmless, like claire.

Diane: Summer, I’m as scared as you are, but come on, let’s think through this. Why would she want to take him?

Summer: Why would she poison my dad and my grandparents, her own parents? She’s a crazy person.

Jack: As I understand things, that was her aunt jordan’s plan.

Summer: Why does everybody give claire a pass? She’s not a child. She’s a grown woman and she went along with everything that jordan did.

Diane: All right, worst case scenario, this is a kidnapping. Should we be prepared for a ransom?

Jack: No, no, if that’s the case, there’s no problem.

Summer: She doesn’t need money. She’s a newman now. Victoria and cole have accepted her and she’s been living at the ranch. She could be set for life. I– I don’t get this. I don’t get why she took harrison.

Traci: What is going on here?

Jack: How is ashley? Any changes?

Traci: She’s still asleep. Why are the police here?

Jack: Harrison is missing. Claire was with him. She was reading a book. When kyle went to check on them, they were both gone.

Traci: How is that even possible? I’ve been here all night.

Jack: We’re trying to figure that out. Did you see anything, hear anything that was out of the ordinary?

Traci: No, no, no. I was checking on ashley every hour or so.

Kyle: Dad, do you have the number for the alarm company? The officer needs to review the security footage.

Traci: Oh, they’re gonna find something on the security footage, right?

Summer: How long were you chatting with claire before harrison came down? Were you having drinks?

Kyle: Really? I had half a glass of whiskey and then she had water.

Summer: Of course, she did. She needed to stay sober while she got you drunk so that she could take harrison. The police should check your drink for poison.

Kyle: She didn’t poison me. I poured my own drink.

Summer: Oh, my god. She probably stole harrison’s lucky charm so that she could use it as an excuse to come over here and to get harrison alone. How long has she been planning this? Charming harrison with her stupid kid jokes and pretending to be his friend?

Diane: Do you think it’s possible?

Summer: Of course, it’s possible and you wanted her to be harrison’s nanny. I cannot be here anymore. I can’t wait around while claire’s getting farther and farther away with our son.

Jack: Summer, I think we all need to stay here in case they get in touch.

Kyle: Or claire calls.

Summer: You stay here. I’m gonna go get my own answer since I definitely can’t trust you.

Kyle: Oh, where are you going? Huh? Damn it!

Jack: Kyle, let her go. She wants to do anything, something that would help things.

Kyle: Oh, and I don’t?

Jack: She is upset, kyle. She’s lashing out.

Traci: Kyle, just don’t even pay attention to her accusations. We all know you would never do anything to put harrison in harm’s way.

Kyle: I mean, did I completely misread claire?

Diane: Well, if you did, you’re not the only one. The newmans have welcomed her into their family.

Kyle: No, not summer. She’s wanted nothing to do with her since she found out about her past. I mean, my god, what if– what if summer’s right? What if she’s been planning this all along, playing me?

Jack: I hate to say this, but we have to consider all the possibilities.

Diane: Jack.

Jack: We have no choice. Claire was alone with him. Now, both of them are gone.

Traci: I just– I just wish I had heard them come upstairs. If I had run into them in the hall checking on ashley, maybe it would have deterred her.

Kyle: Tonight, claire said she brought his toy back because she had a lucky charm of her own when she was a kid, and jordan took it from her.

Traci: She told you that?

Kyle: Yes. She talked about how hard it was and how– and how happy she was to be free of jordan’s lies and rebuilding her life as a newman. I mean, the story, it seemed so real. The details. It’s like telling it, it brought up painful memories for her.

Traci: And it’s these tiny details that make a made-up story sound very real.

Kyle: So, you’re saying she was lying to me? That she was playing me? This is some manipulation to win me over?

Traci: No, I’m not saying anything. I’m just suggesting that we consider it.

Kyle: Yeah. How could I have been so vulnerable?

Jack: Hey, we will find him. We will bring him home.

Traci: Diane? Where are you going? Kyle needs you right now.

Diane: I know no one wants to think about it, but there is an emotionally unstable person right upstairs.

Traci: Are you suggesting that ashley would do something to harm harrison? She loves that boy.

Diane: So do I. He’s my grandson. But like jack said, we have to look at all the possibilities.

[ Knocking on door ]

[ Frantic knocking on door ]

Victoria: All right. All right, I’m coming. I’m coming, I’m coming. Summer, what are you doing here? It’s so late.

Summer: Is claire here? Did she bring harrison? Claire!

Victoria: Last I heard, she was dropping off his good luck charm. She texted me that she found it at the jazz lounge. Why would she bring harrison here?

Summer: Claire took harrison. They’re both missing. If advanced lung cancer

Summer: Claire!

Victoria: What are you talking about? There must be some misunderstanding. Claire would never take harrison.

Summer: They’re not here. You’re sure?

Victoria: No, I’m positive they’re not here. I’ve been waiting for her to get home. I’ll call her. Let me call her. Claire, uh, it’s mom. It’s getting late. I’m worried about you. Where are you? What’s going on? Just give me a call as soon as you get this, all right?

Kyle: This is what he looks like. He’s about this tall… he has brown hair.

Traci: Well?

Diane: Ashley’s sound asleep.

Traci: Well, I could have told you that if you had let me.

Diane: All right, you want me to say it? Okay, I’m wrong. I’m wrong, but can you blame me with how she’s been acting lately?

Traci: You know, I don’t blame any of us for heightened emotions at a time like this, especially with our sweet boy missing. Diane, I know my sister. And no matter what she’s going through, she would never harm an innocent child.

Diane: I know, I know. But whoever has harrison might.

Victor: So, what happened?

Summer: I’m really sorry to stop by so late, but this is an emergency.

Victor: Is it claire or jordan?

Summer: Claire’s missing. So is harrison.

Nikki: What do you mean they’re missing?

Victoria: Tell them what you told me.

Summer: Claire found harrison’s good luck charm at the lounge. He had lost it and she brought it to the abbott house to give back to him. And kyle let her go upstairs with harrison to read him a story and then the– the next thing he knew, they were gone. She took him.

Victor: How do you know claire took him?

Victoria: That’s my point exactly. It’s a leap to blame her.

Summer: A leap? I know that claire took him because of her history and because kyle would have heard if someone else was in the house. Grandpa, I told you that I didn’t trust her. I was right.

Nikki: My god, it’s jordan. She’s behind this.

Victor: Well, let’s not jump to conclusions, all right? Let’s stick with the facts. So, go on.

Summer: The last you tracked jordan, she had left town. Claire, on the other hand, was at the abbott house with harrison alone. She’s been fixated on harrison since the moment that she met him.

Victoria: Come on, she loves children. Harrison is the first little cousin that she’s had a chance to meet. Fixation is going a bit far, don’t you think?

Summer: She stole his good luck charm. She was using that as an excuse to get to the abbott house and she knew that she could get away with it because we were all going to be distracted celebrating you guys at the jazz lounge.

Victoria: Claire would never kidnap a child. There has to be some other explanation.

Nikki: I am telling you, this is jordan. I knew our party would lure her out of hiding. Oh, my god. That’s why we had all the security.

Summer: Stop, please. Just can you all stop giving claire an out? You let her into your lives and you let her into your home and look at what’s happened. She tricked you all again.

[ Phone ringing ]

Jack: Victor, I take it you’ve heard?

Victor: Yeah. Summer and victoria are here.

Jack: That’s where she went. She ran out of here saying she needed answers.

Victor: Do you have any update?

Jack: The police are here searching the grounds with my security team. They’ve already spoken to kyle. They’re going over security cam footage as we speak.

Victor: Okay, now listen carefully. I’m going to send my head of security to meet with your team. Together, we will find our grandson.

Jack: Thank you. How are summer and nikki?

Victor: Emotions are running high, all right? And summer’s blaming claire. So, obviously it doesn’t sit well with victoria. What do you think? You think it was claire?

Jack: I don’t want to. And for the record, neither does kyle. But given the information we have, no other explanation really makes sense.

I have type 2 diabetes, but I manage it well

Jack: Oh, good. My security team tells me you’ve completed your own search of the grounds and the security cam footage.

Kyle: Please tell us you found something that explains what happened.

Guard: A delivery truck arrived late tonight.

Traci: Oh, that would be our weekly floral delivery. It arrives like clockwork.

Diane: I’ll go check.

Guard: Tonight it was late. It parked at the back entrance for 10 minutes, then left.

Kyle: Okay, what about the driver?

Jack: Did you maybe see who it was?

Guard: Unfortunately not.

Diane: Okay, the flowers did arrive, but they’re just in a pile outside the kitchen door like someone tossed them there.

Traci: No, that’s not at all how it usually happens.

Kyle: This doesn’t make sense. There’s more going on here.

Cole: Claire would never hurt a child. And she would never run off with jordan willingly. This is all my aunt. She has our child and yours.

Summer: I am so sick of you all blindly trusting claire. And I’m furious at kyle for leaving harrison alone with her, knowing how I felt about her.

Victoria: She’s your cousin. She’s my daughter. Your own father has forgiven her. You would think that you’d be able to give her the benefit of the doubt.

Summer: When my child is missing?

Cole: What possible motive could she have?

Victoria: Exactly. Her sole focus has been getting stronger. She’s been overcoming all kinds of psychological and emotional abuse that she’s suffered from her aunt jordan, who, by the way, she’s cut all ties with and tried to draw close to her true family, which includes you, by the way. Do you know she’s trying so hard to be your friend?

Summer: Why is that? To get closer to harrison?

Cole: Okay, summer, just think about it. Why would she do this?

Summer: I don’t know why she would do this. I’m not a psychopath like her and her aunt. Maybe it’s time that you two give me some answers.

Victoria: Like?

Summer: Like, why is claire so obsessed with working with children, being around them, helping them? What is that about? Maybe she does take after her aunt. Maybe she stole a kid for her own insane reasons to have a do-over on the childhood that she never had or to… to punish another kid the way that she was out of some sick, twisted revenge.

Victoria: Look, I understand that you’re upset, all right? I understand that this is terrifying, but you’re spinning all of these theories that don’t make any sense whatsoever.

Summer: Psychopaths don’t make sense. I don’t know what’s going on in her head. I don’t know. What I do know is that you all are blind when it comes to claire. You’ve been enabling her. You’ve been coddling her, telling her that you forgive her. She tried to kill you, and she fooled you. You know that she’s a master manipulator. She fooled you, grandma. And you’ve just somehow forgotten all about that because– because you’re desperate to accept her back into the family. Because you feel bad that she felt abandoned growing up. Even you, grandpa. Even you. You want us all to be a big, happy family so badly that you’re just you’re blinded by your feelings. My son is the one that’s paying the price. I said tonight that I learned everything that I know about family from you. What about my family? What about harrison? Do any of you care about harrison? He’s just a little boy. He should be home, asleep, safe in bed. But you’re all too busy defending claire, who you barely know.

Victor: Sweetheart, sit down. Now, look at me. Do you know anyone who is more careful about people coming into our circle? Or even to our family? No one is more suspicious. No one. I would not do anything to hurt my family. And harrison is part of my family. We love him as our son. Now, I brought claire in here. I thought about that. But I brought her in here as suspicious as I am. That should give you assurance that claire did not do this.

Jack: I’m not sure we can rule out claire’s involvement quite yet.

Kyle: But don’t you see? The delivery truck being late, the flowers not being delivered in their usual way. Someone could have come in here and taken harrison.

Diane: But why would the flower delivery person want to kidnap harrison?

Kyle: The delivery truck was a cover.

Traci: That’s possible, but is it likely?

Kyle: Yeah, anyone in search of a ransom could target harrison. It’s part of why we have security in the first place.

Traci: That’s very true.

Kyle: We have to at least entertain the possibility that someone else did this. And just finding claire was an accident. I mean, did I hear anything? And just assume it was traci or ashley. My instincts can’t be that bad. To leave my son alone with someone who would take him?

Jack: We need to consider every possibility. We’ve already given the police the name of the floral company. They’re going to reach out to the driver to see if anything out of the ordinary happened tonight.

Diane: And if that’s the case, we should be prepared for a ransom demand soon.

Kyle: Okay, if someone would risk it all and kidnap harrison for money, what if they freak out and think that they’ll get caught? What happens to harrison then?

Jack: We have to stop spinning scenarios. We have to stay calm.

Kyle: How can I? How can any of us?

Jack: We can because we must. To get through this crisis, to get harrison back here safely. When anyone in this house wears white,

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

This year,

Summer: I know that you love harrison.

Victoria: We all do. Do you know he was my stepson before he was yours?

Summer: Then why can’t you see the danger that he’s in?

Victoria: We see the danger that harrison and claire are both in.

Summer: I can’t talk to you about this anymore. You let claire into this family and now she has harrison. That is on all of you. So do whatever it takes to find them. You at least owe me that. Find her, appeal to this so-called empathy that she has for children, and make her bring harrison home. And then make sure she never has the opportunity to hurt a child ever again. Or I will never forgive any of you.

Victor: Very sorry you had to hear all that.

Victoria: Summer’s never trusted claire. That’s why she’s blaming her now.

Nikki: I’m sorry, darling, but we all know damn well that this is jordan. Summer didn’t want to hear it because it’s too terrifying. And we have no confirmation that jordan got on that train. Look at the timing. The night of our anniversary party, I knew it would draw her out and it did, just not in the way I expected.

Victoria: Did you really think that jordan planned to kidnap claire and harrison? I mean, how could she have known that claire would find his good luck charm and go to the abbots?

Nikki: So, she pivoted. Like that night in the dungeon when we saw her swallow her own poison. When she realized she couldn’t infiltrate our party because there was so much security, she had to come up with another way to get to us.

Cole: I hate to say it, but this does sound like my aunt.

Victor: You know that she’s a master opportunist.

Victoria: What if claire was her target, but then harrison just ended up collateral damage?

Cole: Looking only for claire at the abbott house? No way.

Nikki: Okay. I know you don’t want to consider this, but I think that we have to. What if summer is right and claire did do this? What if jordan somehow was able to draw claire back in?

Jack: Thank you, officer. I appreciate the update.

Traci: Okay, did they talk to the delivery driver?

Jack: If anything, it is more confusing. The floral delivery service can’t seem to get in touch with the driver and he didn’t make any of his other deliveries tonight.

Kyle: So he and the truck are both missing?

Jack: Not exactly. The truck was abandoned on a roadside just outside of town.

Kyle: Okay, that proves it was hijacked. Someone had a plan.

Traci: Plan? That someone that was watching the house long enough to know what our regular deliveries were like.

Diane: Well, why haven’t they contacted us yet?

Traci: Because they’re waiting, they’re waiting. What are they waiting for? They’re waiting because they’re still watching the house. They’re waiting for the police to leave and they’re waiting so that their call isn’t traced.

Kyle: Or they’re waiting for the coast to be clear to drop off instructions.

Jack: We don’t know that this is a ransom or maybe something else.

Diane: Jack, I know that your team is working on this and so is victor’s and so is the police.

Jack: Yes, it’s all hands on deck.

Diane: But we will find them, right? And harrison’s going to be okay? I mean, honey, the thought of him scared and alone.

Summer: What’s happened? Has there been news?

Kyle: Yeah, we just got an update from the police. The truck that usually delivers the flowers was late tonight.

Traci: And the flowers were dumped out back.

Jack: They weren’t able to identify the driver on the security footage. The driver is apparently missing in action. And the truck is found on the side of a road.

Kyle: So, it proves that it had to have been someone else, an outsider. I mean, we should contact the fbi. Isn’t that who handles kidnapping?

Summer: Hey, hang on. Hang on. How does that prove anything? How did claire get here tonight?

Kyle: She took a ride share.

Summer: Did you see her arrive?

Kyle: No.

Summer: So she could have said whatever she wanted. She could have come here in a delivery truck and parked out back.

Kyle: Why would she do that? She didn’t need to sneak in.

Summer: So that she can make a quick escape with harrison.

Kyle: Okay, summer, I know you’re scared. I’m terrified too, but we do not have enough information to blame claire and just zero in on her. The delivery truck was here for 10 minutes. Claire was here a lot longer. So someone else, the kidnapper drove the truck onto the property.

Summer: It doesn’t mean that she wasn’t involved. The person on the inside.

Kyle: So, she’s part of some kidnapping ring now?

Summer: My grandma thinks that jordan could be behind this.

Diane: Oh, god.

Traci: Not our sweet boy.

Summer: Claire was jordan’s loyal accomplice before. On the drive over here, I had to… face the possibility that it might be true. They could be back at it again. Jack, we’ve got to get the newman and the abbott security teams on this. They need to be checking claire’s phone calls, her text messages, her web searches. And they need to be on the lookout for all three people. And we need to let the police know that jordan… is still in genoa city.

Jack: You’re right. I’ll make those calls now.

[ Phone ringing ]

Summer: What is it?

Kyle: It’s claire.

Jack: Read it, son.

Kyle: Um… “I have harrison. You can keep him safe by helping my aunt. She knows the newmans will never let her go free. It’s up to you and summer. Details to follow.”

Summer: Call her. Call her now. Demand that she bring harrison back right now.

Kyle: Summer, summer, just give me a second to think.

Summer: What do you need to think about?

Kyle: Jordan could still be a part of this.

Summer: She is. And claire is her accomplice.

Kyle: What if she’s threatening claire? What if she has claire’s phone and she doesn’t know that she’s using it?

Summer: Why can’t you accept that you’re wrong about her? Why do you insist on defending her?

Kyle: Because I can’t stand knowing that my son is alone and terrified with two lunatics! That I put my son in danger by trusting the wrong person! That he trusted claire! He called her his new friend. And she did this to him. That I let this happen.

Summer: I hate this too. But the sooner you accept that she did this…

Kyle: Just think about it. If claire isn’t a part of this, if this is all jordan, our son has an ally. A protector. Someone who will look out for him and make sure he gets home safe.

Summer: It’s wishful thinking, kyle. And it’s pointless. Because the truth is our son is out there somewhere. And he needs us.

Jack: What this text tells us is that jordan, with or without claire, is willing to negotiate.

Traci: Oh, I really think that we need to look at this as a positive sign.

Victoria: How could you even say that, mom?

Cole: Look, claire has seen jordan for who she is. She would never willingly be a part of her evil plan again.

Nikki: I don’t want to believe this any more than you do. And I’m not accusing her. But how could jordan pull this off without claire? I mean, how could she even get close enough to harrison on her own?

Victoria: Claire would never take harrison of her own accord. I refuse to believe that. This is just another twisted revenge plot of jordan’S. I can’t even bear to consider what she has in mind for harrison, or why she would even target him in the first place.

Cole: Okay, listen, we’re going to find them both, all right? Everyone’s minds are racing all over the place because of the shock of this all. We’re looking for logic here.

Victor: Yeah, but there’s no logic where jordan is concerned, you know?

[ Phone ringing ] Excuse me. Yes, jack. Any update?

Jack: It all ties back to jordan. Kyle got a text from claire admitting that she has harrison and saying that he and summer were going to have to help jordan.

Victor: What do you mean help jordan?

Jack: Details to follow, but she no longer trusts that the newmans are going to let her go.

Victor: You mean, and she trusts the abbotts?

Nikki: Look, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to upset you. I don’t want to believe that claire is a part of this either. I mean, she was so happy at the party tonight being a part of the family.

Victoria: You know, she said it was the best night of her life.

Cole: I watched her listen to the toast, and you could just see how much it meant to her to be there.

Victoria: She would never use this as a cover to try to sneak away and help jordan steal harrison from this house.

Victor: Hold on for a minute. So, it seems claire has harrison, and some demands helping jordan are to follow.

Cole: But she has the boy?

Victoria: No, that can’t be right. Daddy, may I? Jack, did you talk to claire? I mean, did you actually hear her voice?

Jack: No, kyle got a text.

Victoria: Well, it could be that jordan has her phone. It doesn’t mean that she sent that text.

Jack: It’s possible.

Victoria: No, that’s what this is. This is jordan. She’s trying to manipulate us all again like she did before. She has claire hostage too.

Victor: Jack, I’m going to come over and see you, okay? So, seems that jordan has decided to include the abbots. Now, I’m going to go over to jack and figure this out together, okay?

Victoria: We’re coming too.

Victor: No, you’re not. You’re going to stay here. I’m going to get that woman, once and for all. I’ve had enough of this nonsense. Schwarzkopf has 125 years

Victoria: You know, I hate to say it, I hate to even think it, but what if summer is right? What if there were some signs in claire that we didn’t see? Not that she would ever hurt harrison, but maybe mom is right. Maybe– maybe jordan somehow got to her?

Nikki: If anyone can, jordan can.

Cole: Nikki, please don’t go down that road. You know better than that. This is what my aunt does. She makes people question their instincts. We know claire’s heart.

Victoria: You’re right. I do, but that means the worst could be true. Claire could be jordan’s victim again.

Jack: Well, victor’s on his way.

Diane: Oh, great. That’s all we need, for him to blow in here and insist that his way is the only way.

Traci: No, no, no. I think it’s good. Victor knows jordan. He knows what we’re going to be dealing with.

Jack: Exactly. We’re going to outsmart her. We need him. Who knows what the demands are going to be.

Kyle: Summer, harrison… harrison’s my world. I would die for him. The day I found out he was my son, my life changed in the best way possible. We are so lucky to have him.

Summer: I know.

Kyle: And he is so lucky to have you as his mother. I will move heaven and earth to get him through this. I promise you, whatever the demands are, whoever they’re from, we will meet them. No questions asked. We will get him home safe and soon.

Summer: You damn well better. This happened because of choices you’ve made. Trusting claire. If anything happens to our son, it’s on you.

Harrison: I don’t know you. I want to go home. I want my mom and dad.

Jordan: Oh, but harrison, I told you, your mom and dad don’t want you anymore. I’m your aunt jordan, and I’m going to take care of you from now on.

[ Objects clatter ] Yeah. Yeah. Given the kind of day I’ve had, that tracks.

[ Sighs ] Great. This is the perfect end to a whole lot of perfect days.

[ Screams ] That’s how I fel t when I watchedthe deception spot on home & heart today. Thank you. Felicia: After watching lucy’s performance, I would have bet any money that she would be the one facedown on the floor. Are you kidding me? Lucy only knows where the floor is because sometimes she drops a gummy on it. You know, the word “star” was used to describe lucy’s performance today. By who? Lucy, of course. She might breathe the same air, but she’s not one of us. You know, if you’re not comfortable with it, you should know that it’s not a legal requirement. I just need a minute to live with the idea. Okay. I’ve got protection on all of my accounts and credit cards, but now I need to just upload my entire tax return and send it to the city council. Yeah, I know. It… it makes you feel vulnerable, doesn’t it? Well, as former police chief, it makes me feel stupid. And at risk. Well, if you decide not to do it, I won’t think any less of you. As a matter of fact, I think ned quartermaine, who was the last mayor — I don’t think he sent his tax returns to the city council every year, or maybe even any year, as far as I can remember. Well, I can’t say I blame him. Ned didn’t see the need for transparency. But when I took over as mayor, I felt that city business should be. So I turned my tax returns over to the city council every year, and in return, they accused me of all kinds of things, but never of being a crook. Well, if it’s okay with you, I’ll scan the documents myself. I don’t want them floating around the office. Look, you do whatever you want to do here. There is one more thing that I’d like to discuss with you, and, uh, it’s a little bit more of a touchy subject. Touchier than sharing my finances with a bunch of strangers? It’s about my brother. Martin? Cyrus. Ah! You want a break? Unless you want to carry me the rest of the way. Why’d I let you talk me into this? Because you love me and you missed running with me. I do. But I also hate you a little.

[ Both laugh ] Can we walk? Of course. We can also call a car and go home and have some pizza. Oh. Listen, a few more runs, and you’ll have your mojo back. I don’t think it’s ever coming back, no matter what I do. Hey, don’t say that. Look, I haven’t been exactly where you are right now, but I know how heavy grief can be. And it can weigh you down. And when you move, you get stronger and it gives your brain a chance to reset. Yeah, it’s like you’re fighting for survival, right? Yeah, that’s part of it. I appreciate you, joss. I mean, sometimes I get in a rut, but you just reminded me a way to get out of it. You’re the best friend I’ve ever had. And you’re the strongest person I know, and I just want you to be able to see it for yourself. You know? What can I say? I love you. I love you, too.

[ Both laugh ] And I miss running with you. And I miss living with you, and my dorm is so sad. We have to, uh, talk out here. Vip has taken over my office. Vip? Who’s more important than you? Avery. She’s doing her homework. Well, we can’t interrupt the acquisition of knowledge, that’s for sure. What do you got for me? A couple of my men met up with cates in the manner that we discussed. And the “meeting” was interrupted when a good samaritan drove up. So a good samaritan just happened to be driving around the waterfront? Yeah. But not before we finished the work we did on cates. Where was the work taking place? About a block away from your coffee warehouse.

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

[ Sighs ]

Mr. Chase. I apologize for keeping you waiting. I didn’t know you were. I thought dr. Kramer was keeping me waiting. Dr. Kramer was called to the er for an emergency consult, and he asked me if I could handle his late appointments, with your consent, of course. Well, I’m already here, so let’s do this. On the condition that you call me gregory and not mr. Chase. I can do that. Good. My appointments with dr. Kramer go almost exactly the same way every time. So this may be a nice change of pace. I’ll do my best.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Ah, it shouldn’t be hard. I know the drill. You’ll ask me, uh, have I had a fall since my last appointment? And if I did, how many times did I fall and how badly did I hurt myself? What were the circumstances just prior to the fall? Is there anything specific that may have triggered it? Oh, it wasn’t all that bad. Sasha slid in and saved the day, right? Yeah, sasha saved our sales, even dressed as stable hand, and scott ran interference with lucy, which earned him a distinguished service medal. Well, so why were you on the floor, facedown, yelling into a rug? I don’t know. I-I dropped some stuff, and when I got down on the floor to pick it up, I just sort of went with it. Oh, okay. I usually yell into a pillow. What’s going on? Uh, well, hmm, lately I just feel like there are maybe too many personalities around here. Oh, you must be talking about lucy, obviously, but is there a next runner-up? It’s really hard to rank them. But everyone’s tired of lucy. Tracy is tired of all of us. Sasha’s happy to pinch hit, but she’s tired of deception. And let’s face it, brook lynn is never tired of music management or planning her wedding, but deception is coming in a distant third on her priority list. So you’re taking care of the entire business yourself. You know, I can’t really blame brook lynn for being so focused on her wedding. I mean, chase’s dad is sick. Hey, the accountants say that deception is finally in the black. Although, you’d never be able to tell by looking at my checkbook. So while you’re taking care of everything at deception, who’s taking care of you? I do n’t know what cates wasdoing on the waterfront last night, but he paid the price for it. He turn up at gh? No. I did a discreet inquiry in the gh, mercy, and founders hospital, and there was no record of a cates being admitted. However, you know, my guys — I’m sure they roughed him up a little bit, but they didn’t break any bones. But the message was definitely sent. He’d have to be smart enough to get that, and john “jagger” cates is not smart at all. He has no loyalty. No guts. Do you know when his — when his brother, stone, was dying of aids, where was jagger? Nowhere to be found. You know why? ‘Cause he couldn’t handle it. So you stepped in? Yeah, I stepped in. I loved that kid, you know? And I’d do it again. And yet, cates doesn’t seem to be overflowing with gratitude. No, he just comes with hatred. There’s something wrong with the guy. There’s something missing. I can see that. But you know what? He’s not smart. But w-why is it hard for me to believe that he would think that I-I would be at the warehouse? Hm. I know why. Why? Jason. Still hard for me to believe jason is working with cates. Why? Jason came to my house and told me to my face that he is an fbi informant. The dots between cates and jason are not hard to connect. Sonny. I’m — I’m just saying! In my experience, sometimes you could connect the two wrong dots, and it could lead to presenting a very misleading picture. Which brings me to dex heller. Dex, I didn’t know that you were staying in town. It’s good to see you. Yeah, you too. So are you working, looking for a job? Dex actually applied to the pcpd. Oh. Wow. I wouldn’t have guessed that sonny and the pcpd would be in the same career path for anyone. Yeah, it’s — it’s a bit of a career curve ball. Yes. Pay is not great, but I want to see if I can make it happen. So is that why you’re taking a last workout before dinner? Can’t hurt. Okay, come on, guys. I know that you broke up, but I don’t know why. And by watching you two right now, I don’t think you know either.

You know, I have had my doubts about deception, but at least we’re still in business, and things are looking better every month. As far as taking care of myself goes, that is not going quite as well. Who are you, and what have you done with maxie? You used to never have trouble prioritizing self-care. You mean, I was selfish and self-absorbed. No, that is not what I mean. I think it’s good to put yourself first, but ever since you’ve been a mother, you have always put everyone else’s needs ahead of your own. And as your mom, I have to say, it’s really starting to worry me. Mom, I’m tired, okay? I’m mad at everyone, and that is exhausting. Well, you know, they say it’s healthy to let go of your anger. Okay. Um, I am tired of being mad at lucy for being lucy. I’m tired of tracy and her general all-around impossibleness. I’m tired of being mad at you for the whole “spinelli faking a flood in his apartment so he could move in” thing. And I’m mad at spinelli for going along with that.

[ Chuckles nervously ] You — you have to let spinelli off the hook. I really played up the fact that I was your mom when I asked him. So he really, um… he didn’t have a choice. Okay. You’re not really helping with the whole being-less-mad-at-you thing. And I’m tired of spinelli being the one guy that I care about but I can’t let near me. What? Wait, you hear yourself? No, of course not. I’m doing more venting than listening. What you just said makes no sense. It’s completely illogical. Oh, oh, I’m illogical? Okay. Well, that’s on you, because you raised me to be polite and good with numbers. You did not raise me to be logical! Look, neither one of us is excited to talk about cyrus, but I would like to have your input. I am the wrong person to ask, laura. I can’t be objective. I know you and cyrus have history. I mean, you knew him before I knew that he and i shared a father. My goal was to put cyrus in prison for crimes I knew he committed. I compromised myself in doing that, and he retaliated in ways that almost destroyed me. I just — [Sighs] I can’t revisit that. Okay. Your feelings are completely justified. I have found myself more than once looking over the list of horrible crimes that he has committed and some of them he’s been convicted for. And most of which he hasn’T. Yeah, I know. And it sometimes takes everything in me not to roll my eyes when he shows up at my doorstep and he’s quoting scripture.

[ Scoffs ] I know there are some hardened criminals, though, who do undergo sort of a — A… a spiritual awakening. Mm. And it’s usually in between the time of their guilty verdict and their sentencing. I’m sorry. I know. I’m showing my bias. It’s okay. Most of those guys don’t end up sounding like cyrus. Yeah. Well, I’m not in a position to judge anyone. I falsified evidence to get cyrus convicted. I’m not proud of it, but I’m not ashamed of it, either. You think that I don’t understand your motives? Really? Please. Look, knowing what you do know, do you think there’s any justification at all for what sonny did to cyrus? In my deepest, darkest fantasy, I may have dreamt about vigilante justice, but it’s not something I would go through with. I want to trust the law. And that’s my dilemma. It’s not with cyrus. It’s with the man who nearly beat him to death with just his fists. It was, uh — it was great to see you, but I should get keep going. Gotta keep the heart rate up. Wait, what happened? The three of us used to be so close, and — and now we’re just standing here like we met at a party three years ago. We’ve changed. We’ve all changed. Yeah, we have changed. What happened to spencer completely derailed my life, but here we are, and we’re acting like we ain’t got nothing to say to each other? I think that we just need a little time. Have you learned nothing from what I’ve been through? You don’t get more time. This is all you have! This is it. Spencer is gone. But I have all this love for him here inside me. And my love for him didn’t disappear just because he did. You two used to be so in love with each other, it was annoying, and you’re still here. So figure it out. I will be right behind you. She’s been through too much. I think that she just needs her friends right now, and like it or not, we are those friends. Whatever you want me to do, I’ll do it. I think that we just need to figure out a way to be at the same place at the same time without making everybody wildly uncomfortable. I’m in. Whatever it takes. Dex heller is dead to me. He should be dead, period. Sonny, I’m the one who discovered dex and the big deposits he was receiving into his account while you were getting shot at in puerto rico and at the metro court. Yeah, so? I haven’t been able to trace the source of the money! And you know how good I am at finding out things. I know where the money came from! Michael. Michael? Corinthos. Why would your son be paying dex? To spy on me so he can get information and give it to the fbi. That makes no sense! I know it doesn’t make any sense, but that’s the way michael is. He’s like one of the other guys. I love my son. I took care of him. But he didn’t know whether to give me a little respect and — and loyalty or spy on me and take me down! I’m sorry, sonny. I’m so sorry. But I feel like I got — I got it wrong with dex. I put him in a position he didn’t entirely deserve. Everybody makes mistakes. My first mistake was trusting dex. But you gave me the heads up and told me something was off with him. Maybe now he’s wise enough to give you a wide berth. Well, he’s not gonna mess with me ’cause he’s smarter than jagger. Well, it’s getting late, so I’m gonna get out of here and leave you to your dinner. Yeah, ava’s gonna show up here pretty soon, you know. Not that that’s any of my business, but how are things going with you two? It’s nice to have A… a woman around. Yet another thing we have in common.

[ Laughs ]

[Cat meow] -Is she? Letting her imagination run wild even though she has allergies. Yeah. Sonny corinthos? Well, we both know he’s the one who nearly beat cyrus to death on new year’s eve. Yeah. And the more I think about that, the less I feel like a city official and the more I feel like sonny’s accomplice. Well, unless you’ve been doing some side work for sonny that I’m unaware of, I don’t know where you’re getting that from.

[ Sighs ] It’s because I tell myself that sonny and i are old friends. And cyrus, although he’s a blood relative, he has committed all of these horrible crimes, and i think he’s trying to straighten himself out, but I don’t really know. The only thing I know is that he’s going about it in the most irritating way possible. I lose patience with him. I’ve slammed the door in his face. Well, there’s a big difference between slamming a door and trying to kill someone. Yes. But my point is that if it were anyone but sonny who attacked cyrus, or who attacked anyone and put them in the hospital, I would want the police to pursue that case. I would want the assailant to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. So why would sonny be the exception? And — and no one, especially not the mayor, should ever look away from a crime because it was committed by someone they thought was their friend. Are you thinking about having sonny arrested? The one thing I truly know is that that’s not my call to make. But I do know whose call it is. I’m sorry. I had such a long day. It’s like a whole week was jammed into one single day. Don’t worry about. I thought you and avery would be starving by the time I got here. I already made her dinner. Really? Yeah. Yeah. Uh, a corinthos meatball special. Oh, wow. Lucky avery. And, you know, she told me about her day, that it was good. I put her in the — in the office.

[ Laughs ] She fell asleep on the couch. Well, thank you for doing all that. My pleasure. So, uh, why was your day long? I don’t think it’s something that you want to hear. Try me. Mm. No, I think it’s better if I don’t because some of it has to do with, uh, she who must not be named. Carly. The other one who mustn’t be named. What does nina want? You. Are you having any difficulties with your medication? Do you ever miss a dose? Oof, not on purpose.

[ Chuckles ] One of my pills is every six hours. Another one’s every eight hours. One of them’s on an empty stomach, one’s with food. Sometimes I just get frustrated and take them all at once. Not ideal. Yeah. That’s not counting the times that I can’t remember if I took them, so I take them again, or not at all. You might need a better system. Yeah. Well, my son finn is quite the taskmaster. Not only at home. Yeah. You’re not the first person to tell me that. Finn always seems to know what pills I’ve taken, when I took them, what meds are on deck. He’s probably the reason that I’m doing as well as I am. And people seem to think I am. What do you think? I try not to compare how I’m feeling today with how I was feeling a year ago. Wise man. Yeah. Not so much wise. It’s just older. But you’re — you’re young. You have kids? My partner and i have one on the way. We’re using a surrogate. Hang on. Alexis and i work together, and I think she said something about that. Um, your partner is… molly? Right. And her sister is your surrogate? Kristina. And if you work with alexis, I bet you heard a lot. I’m gonna try to keep alexis from scrubbing in during the birth.

[ Chuckles ] Well, good luck with that. Thank you. When’s the baby due? In august. Oh. Well, that’s just wonderful. What? Is there a problem? I did set out to raise a strong, capable, brilliant daughter, but I also raised you to be illogical so that you would have at least one flaw. Well, congratulations on a job well done. Let’s call it a day. What’s going on with spinelli? Okay, fine. I kissed spinelli the night we found out jason was back. Emotions were running high. Why am I just hearing about this now? Because it’s not logical for me to tell my mom about some crazy nerd I kissed unless I’m gonna follow it up with, “I think he’s the one.” Well, I don’t really see this as a problem and — and why I’m still on your grudge list. My matchmaking skills worked. Mom, you’re still on my list because I’ve broken spinelli’s heart so many times, I can’t do it to him again. And it doesn’t matter that james adores him or that georgie is crazy about her dad or that bailey lou lights up every time spinelli walks into a room. And it definitely doesn’t matter that I love spinelli and I probably will forever!

I’m a doctor, so I know that it’s important to, you know, have a proper amount of sleep, have a good nutrition, exercise moderately so that, you know, if you want to have a healthy baby, that’s the — that’s the best chance. Yeah. Absolutely. It’s all true. But, you know, men and women have been worrying about their unborn children for centuries, and in circumstances far more daunting than these. In fact, there was this famous union officer who fought ferociously in the civil war. Her disguise was so good that no one realized she was a woman until she went into labor on the battlefield, and she and her baby were just fine. Is that true? Is… I don’t remember where I read it, but, yes, it’s true. So you’re telling me that things could be worse. Kristina could be eating hardtack and giving birth during gettysburg? Eh, it’s an extreme example, I know. But my point is that long before you and I were walking the earth, babies were coming out just fine. And, of course, there are sad exceptions to everything. But worrying about them in advance isn’t gonna make them any more or less likely to happen. This is your moment. Live in it. So, what did you tell nina? Mm. Nothing. As a matter of principle, I don’t tell nina or anybody else anything about you? Well, she had to want, you know, something. Oh, she does. She wants you back. You know — you know what’s sad? You know, she — she can’t accept that the marriage is over and move on. I’m sorry it came up at all. Your marriage is between you and nina. Well, look, like I said, until she accepts that the marriage is over and she signs the divorce papers, she’s just gonna be hurting. I’m sorry that you had to go through that. Oh, it’s all right. I can sympathize with nina. Even though I know she has no one to blame for her situation but herself. Are you okay, joss? Yeah. I guess. Um, you know, it was a huge gift getting jason back, and my mom’s over the moon. She’s just been so much happier and lighter, and it kind of just energized the rest of us. You look great.

[ Laughs ] Thank you. I just went for a run, so I probably don’t smell great. I missed your smell. And your — your warmth. Your hair across my face.

[ Knocking ] Hey, hope I’m not disturbing you. The woman at the end of the hall told me I could find you here. These are for you. You remembered I like daffodils. I remember everything about you. And I’m hoping you remember I said I’d be back. I remember hearing something like that. Then I have just one more question. Can you come out and play?

Is this your way of sayingour conversation is over? Um, this is my way of saying I don’t need to see your whole “you poor girl” look in full-spectrum light. If you’re seeing that, then you’re reading me wrong. Come on. Let’s go to sit down. You know, I-I was remembering a time when I was in the exact same place that you were in. I was in love with someone, and after years of false starts and misfires, I finally realized he was the love of my life. Mac. Mac. When mac and I broke up, I didn’t think our relationship could be mended. And when it was mended, I-I was so afraid to let him in. I was so afraid that I would do something to screw it up for good. But then I listened to my heart and not my fear. And I’m so glad I did, because when mac and i were married for the last time, we both knew it was forever. Spinelli and I broke up once, and it nearly killed me. If I let him in again, how do I know nothing bad will happen? You don’T. You just need to have a little faith. I — [Chuckles] I survived a breakup with spinelli once. I don’t know if I could do it twice. Do you think that spinelli has the same worry that you do? Because I don’T. He has seen you at your worst and at your best and everything else in between, and he never turned away from you until you kicked him out and closed the door behind him. And after he was gone, were either one of you any happier? Do I need to put my glasses on, or can you tell me if it’s a boy or a girl? Oh, we — we told the ob/gyn that we didn’t want to know. So they carefully picked ultrasound pictures we can see. Secretly hoping for one or the other? I’m secretly hoping it’s a girl, but molly can never know that. And she never will.

[ Chuckles ] But I’m just hoping the baby’s healthy and it has all the necessary toes and fingers and that it doesn’t know who its surrogate was because she’s a little crazy and so is her family.

[ Laughs ] So, for your partner, you snatched up the one entirely sane member of the family. Sonny and kristina are — mm… passionate, both very passionate people. Molly is perfect, except for all these excuses she keeps making for kristina, and I think they’re going to keep rolling off my back the way they used to once the baby’s here. Well, I don’t envy you right now. All you can do is wait and worry. But it’ll pass, son. It’s about to be so wonderful. Trust me. I do. But aren’t you supposed to be the patient and I’m supposed to be the doctor? All right, in my last act as your physician, uh, let me just say eat all your vegetables, don’t drink to excess, and I’ll see you in a year for your next follow-up. Thank you. Not bad. Funny with enough sexy to pull it off. Oh, you haven’t seen my sexy yet. You’ll need to sign a release first.

[ Laughs ] Oh, okay. Well, the woman down the hall is a notary. Do I need to call her, or should I just take my chances? Oh, you’re not taking any chance on me. I’m a sure thing. Mm. So you’re saying you’re easy. For you, always.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. I need to finish scanning these before this conversation gets me in trouble with human resources. Oh. We are definitely taking a chance because we are definitely not safe or suitable for work.

[ Laughs ] Okay. A man who can make a human resources joke. Hey, well, look, once you finish that up, I can impress you some more. Maybe I could take you out to dinner someplace nice and quiet. And while you’re doing that, if I could find a sink around here someplace, I can put the flowers in some water for you. No need to do that. I am taking them home with me. Hm. I’ve just been scanning these tax returns for the city council all evening. I knew that’s what they were. I caught a look earlier. Excuse me. My tax returns are private. You don’t need to be looking at them. My apologies. Since you showed me yours, I’ll show you mine.

[ Chuckles ] I want to say something, and I-I just want you to let me say it, okay? Sure. I think I know why you’re doing this. When I found out that you were willing to kill for sonny, I came down on you really, really hard. And now I think you’re trying to prove to me, or yourself, that you’re not that guy. Okay. And, look, like if you were cleaning toilets at a middle school or rescuing puppies, I would respect that, and I would back you up 100%. But…[Sighs] But what? But not this, dex. You can’t become a cop. It puts you squarely in sonny’s sight. I am not going to go looking for sonny, badge or no badge. Dex, you know too much about his business. Eventually, he’s gonna want to get rid of you for that. So badge or no badge, it doesn’t matter. Sonny had a chance to get rid of me and he didn’T. Yes, because my mom stopped him. But he doesn’t listen to her anymore. And you know that sonny loses his mind a little bit every time he thinks someone betrayed him. I mean, look at what he did to you. He — he hung you from a meat hook and put you in a freezer the first time he thought you lied to him. Right, and you saved me. I haven’t forgotten. He’s not gonna let this go. And you know that. We might not be together anymore, but I don’t want anything bad to happen to you, ever. I have to go. Joss, wait.

It wasn’t fair of me to conspire with spinelli to fake an excuse for him to move in. Yeah. That was a rare but rather large swing and a miss for you, mom. It’s okay, though. Most of the time, you’re very wise. And it wouldn’t kill me to actually listen to you every once in a while. Oh, I didn’t expect to hear you say that. I didn’t expect to say it, but I’m tired. To be honest, I’m surrounded by a lot of wise people. Mac, you, brook lynn. I mean, even james has this really cute way of looking at life where he just cuts through the noise. Not me, though. I am the noise. Maxie. Mm-hmm. There are so many people that love you. I-I just wish you could be one of them. Oh, mom, most days, I am okay. Sometimes it’s rough, though. Yeah, but those are the days when you need to have somebody at home who loves you more than anything. Like an adorable, crazy nerd, for instance.

[ Both chuckle ] Before you go find trina, there’s some things I think you should know. Okay. I told commissioner devane I would testify against sonny. What? How? I didn’t have any hard evidence, so she said it would just be my word against sonny’S. Yeah. And anyone else that sonny got to lie for him. Right, right, but… she said it would all end up in the wash, and I would just end up with an even bigger target on my back. As if that’s possible. Well, so the commissioner suggested I become a cop because it would give me some level of protection. Now, I don’t know if it will or not, but once I started this process, I… I saw it as a second chance. Not to prove anything to you, but because it felt right to me. Well, that’s how it should be. I fought for my country, joss. And then I fought so that that man could make money by any means possible. Sonny saved my life, and he put his faith in me, and I thought I had found a home with him. But someone like that can never be home. Fighting for what is good and decent, protecting people from being victimized — that is the fight that I want. Even if you’re fighting for people like cyrus? I don’t get to pick and choose. I just, I wanted you to know where I was coming from when I applied to the academy. I appreciate you telling me. I think it’s best that any and all financial records you have remain a mystery to me. There’s nothing scary or bad in there. I’m just a consultant who’s very good at his job and very high in demand. I know. I’m familiar with one of your clients who has a frequent demand of your services. Sonny may be one of my clients, but I am not my clients any more than you’re the city’s infrastructure, which, by the way, could use some improvements. Thank you. I think.

[ Laughs ] Come on. Come on out with me. Even superheroes get hungry. That’s true. Come on.

[ Cellphone rings ] Hold on a second. Yeah. Agh! All right, I’m on — tell him I’m on the way. Fine. I will. Damn. You did say you were in demand. I was hoping you’d be the one doing the demanding. Well, next time you’re in town, let me know. Is that a demand? Not quite, but something like that. Then how can I refuse?

[ Chuckles ] What is wrong with you? I’m gonna say something I probably shouldn’T. Let’s hear it. Well, I know that we’re not together in a conventional sense. But, um, the truth is… …I really like living with you. Yeah. I like it, too.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Oh, Nina, how you feeling? Oh, a little groggy. I can’t seem to focus on my work, on the TV, everything. I miss my family, my husband. Yeah, well, the fogginess is from the radioactive iodine, which is normal. Oz is missing your loved ones during the isolation. How are you feeling? Is the nausea still affecting you a bunch?

Some, yes, but the nurse gave me medication. Good, good. Bet your mouth is pretty dry, huh? Oh, I could drink a river. Oh, you should drink a river, please. I’m gonna touch your neck if that’s okay. Let’s just see how we’re doing here.

Do you have any soreness or neck pain? A little. So, how long till I can be released and get back to the real world? It’s like we talked about. It’s a minimum two day stay. It could be up to four. We’ll keep monitoring your radiation levels and as soon as it’s safe to release you, we will. And then you’ll, you’ll have to take some precautions for about a week before you can fully enter the public life.

Ugh, Phil. No wind in sight.

There you are. What happened? Hey, yeah, sorry, I, uh, took so long. The, uh, Chomped wood out back was wet. I think the, uh, the tarp must have blown off during the storm last night. So, I had to go down to the shoreline and find some dry wood. Oh, great. Where’s Chanel? Huh? What do you mean? I, I, isn’t she here? I don’t know.

She’s out looking for you, Johnny. Well, I haven’t seen her. Oh my God. Where could she be? Uh, how long ago did she leave? About ten minutes. Okay, then she can’t have gone far. Um, I’ll call her. I’ll just call her. I’ll let her know that I’m, that I’m back.

Oh no.

Yeah, this is the last of it. You know, I, I moved in here just in October. I swear I did not have all this stuff when I moved in. Yeah, well we’re gonna have to shoehorn this into my place. And I don’t, I don’t think I can bring furniture. What? I’m just not gonna fit. No, come on. Maybe just, um, my reading chair?

Okay, I’ll see what I can do. Thank you. I don’t know. I’m glad to be getting out of here. Because the trip in Wendy? Yeah, I just don’t want them caught in the line of fire again now that Clyde’s still in my hair. God, I just, yeah, I can’t believe he wants another favor with this damn black book. I just, I wish I was there when he, when he called you.

Yeah, well, hearing his voice makes my skin crawl. I’ve been trying to track his location, he hasn’t left any trail. It’s cause he’s a reptile. He’s stealthy and lurking about, just waiting to strike. Yeah, well I’m pretty sure I’ve had more stealth training than that guy. And he’s definitely underestimated who he’s dealing with.

Yeah? You or me? Both. But I’m the one who’s gonna bring his ass to justice.

What the hell was that? That half hearted apology. You didn’t even mention Tate and his family. I did, just before you arrived. Well, it wasn’t much. AJ, I thought you were genuine about this, that you wanted to make amends. I did exactly what I said I would do. No more, no less. Well, it was a lot less, because the press has barely arrived.

You want to bury this, don’t you? Are you even sorry that you locked up Tate? Or are you just embarrassed that you have to make a public apology? Darling, I have a very busy day today. That family is lucky to even get an apology on a morning like this. I just had a hearing with the judge over this whole Stefan fiasco.

Well, how did it go? The judge said that they will take the plea agreement under advisement, which means I have no idea yet if the court is going to accept or reject the deal. And darling, I really do have to go. I have a lot to deal with and I have no time or interest in dealing with the press. Okay.

Press is here. I’ll be hungry, bro. Cause you’re about to eat some krull.

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

For you, justice is putting Clyde behind bars. For me, it looks a little different. You know, the last time I saw Clyde, I swore I would slit his throat. He tried to kill the two men that I love most in this world. I’m not gonna let him hurt Tripp again. For you. Or you. You know, I like you better alive. Yeah, so do I.

What if I can’t find this damn black book? You know, I don’t, I don’t even know where to begin looking for it. I worked at the bistro for months. I know every single inch of that place. I never came across it. Okay, we just, we have to, we have to have a plan. We can’t just bust in and tear the place apart. No, no, no, no.

Okay, so we’ll map it out. We’ll do an organized search. Yeah. I’m just glad I’m not doing this alone. And I’m just glad you told me about Clagg’s call right away this time. Thank you for trusting me. There’s no one that I trust more. Well, now that I’m in on this from the start, we can be clad at his own game.

He wants you to find Gil’s black book, we’re gonna find it. And we’re gonna give it to him. And then we’re gonna take his ass down.

I know, the isolation is kind of a drag. But, you’re gonna be back with your family very soon. And this whole ordeal is gonna be over. I know that Abe is missing you. And Chanel and Johnny are gonna be back in a couple of days. They’re up at my family cabin in Smith Island right now. Mm, yeah, I know. Chanel told me all about it.

Oh, a little honeymoon getaway. Yes, it’s very sweet. Johnny was, uh, very excited to surprise her. Although I don’t think the snowstorm was what they were expecting. More of a winter wonderland than a spring fling. Exactly. I just hope they didn’t lose power and have enough firewood. I mean, we have plenty of firewood.

Warm blankets, and cozy clothes, so I’m sure they’re gonna be just fine.

Damn, okay, uh, Chanel doesn’t have her phone, which means she can’t call us, we can’t call her. So, what are we going to do? I’m gonna go out there and find her. Honey, you circling around looking for her, her circling around looking for you, lost in the snow, it’s the last thing we need. Right, okay, yes, but, I’m taking my phone, obviously, okay, so, if she comes back, you call me, and if I find her, I’ll call you.

I’ve got 80 percent battery, I’m gonna pull up a map, make sure I know where I am in case I stray away from the cabin. Well, let me make you a thermos of something hot you can give it to her when she’s so cold, you know? Uh, only if you hurry. Oh, yeah, I’ve got the Coca Cola already made. Just take a minute.

Too late, gentlemen. I just wrapped up the press conference after my office’s public apology to Master Black and I was just discussing how well it went with my wife. Isn’t that right, Nicole? That’s bull and we all know it. You’re unbelievable. Sung a press conference early to avoid the press. That’s not a good look, D.

A. DiMera. Oh, spammy direction. Now get out of my way, news boy. Yeah, not so fast. You’re a civil servant and as members of the press in the city in which you serve, we have a few questions. More than a few.

Why don’t you start by telling us what we missed? Did you apologize to Tate Black and his parents? An apology was given, the family was here, the matter is resolved. There’s got to be more to it than that. What exactly did you tell him?

What’s the matter, you don’t want to stand by your husband while he’s getting grilled? That is not my job, he runs his own office. Right. So, why would he start the press conference early? He didn’t want the press here? Honestly, I have no idea. Were you here for it? Just at the end. And I’m really not interested in talking about this.

How’s Holly doing? She’s okay. She goes back to school today, so I’m just crossing my fingers that all goes well. Well, I hope so. For both of you. How have you been holding up? Alright. I’m at a crossroads, I think. You know, I’ve been taking care of Holly for almost a year, and um, Now I just don’t know what to do with myself.

You know, I thought I’d be raising my little boy, and, I’m sorry. Well, God has other plans for me. I just, I don’t know what they are yet.

Was the family satisfied with your office’s apology? Yes, completely. Now really, I must be going. What about Detective Michaels? Any progress finding a shooter or who set me up? The Salem PD’s investigation into Detective Michaels is ongoing. My office has been giving its full support in the search for the perpetrator who gunned down one of our brave men and women in blue.

We will keep you apprised of any developments. Oh, well, here’s Detective Michaels. Now, excuse me, the D. A. here is attempting to answer my question about the status of the police investigation into your shooting. Any leads, Detective? Is your department any closer to finding the actual shooter? Well, um, you know, a public statement about that case or any other investigation should come from our police commissioner.

Well, what about Clyde Weston? Where are you in the search for him? We’ve initiated a nationwide manhunt for Clyde Weston and his accomplice. Oh, I see. A beyond the lookout alert is a nationwide manhunt. All leads and tips will be investigated. I like this. Let’s go grab a coffee.

Look at that.

My office just sent me a transcript of E. J. DiMera’s press conference.

The drug crisis has a strangled hold over our fair city. Blah, blah, blah. At times we must err on the side of caution. Blah, blah, blah. This was the case with Tate Black as District Attorney of Salem. It’s my job to follow the evidence and prosecute those who have wronged our community. Sometimes the system doesn’t work that way, and for that I offer my apology.

Oh, what is he doing? Oh, so smug. Sleazy! This is not the way that you apologize to a wrongfully accused teenage boy! Your heart rate is rising. Maybe we can finish working a little bit. I guess I’d better. We can dive into all of Salem’s problems later, but for now I just want you to think happy thoughts.


It’s Paulina. Check your divorce file? No, if we don’t answer she’s just going to start to worry and she’s just going to keep calling. Okay. Hey, Paulina, how’s it going? Johnny? Where’s Chanel? Uh, she’s, uh, she’s, she’s in the shower. I just, I saw it was you, so I wanted to pick up. Didn’t want you to worry, you know.

Oh, well I am worried. I heard there’s a storm out there. Everything okay there? Yeah, yeah, no, everything’s, everything’s great here. Uh, how’s isolation? Boring. Uh, but, uh, fine, I guess. I’ll get through it. Sorry to bother you. Didn’t want to interrupt your, your honeymoon. Just checking in on you two. That’s okay.

No, it’s, uh, it’s not a problem. I’ll tell Chanel you called. Yes, please, please. Tell her to call me after, um, the shower. Bye. Will do. Bye bye now.

Okay, I’m gonna go find Chanel. Paulina will never be the wiser. We don’t need to worry her with this. She’s been through enough already, okay? Right, right. Okay. Johnny, be careful out there.

St. Anthony? Patron saint of lost souls and lost things. Please help Johnny find Chanel.

Julie, this, this is a really special place you have. Yes, it is, and it’s been wonderful for the family, always such beautiful memories. And on bad weather days like this. My grandparents always had plenty of board games and puzzles for us. Sort of like the, the time capsule. The what? After the fire at our house, we found a time capsule that my grandparents had left for everyone.

And we think it must have been something to challenge the new generations, you know, like a puzzle. It is getting colder, isn’t it? Yeah, yeah, um, you know what? I’ll go help Donnie. Oh, honey, you don’t have to do that. I’ll be right back. I know, I know. But still, I think that two hands will bring back more firewood for us all.

Very practical. Thank you. Thank you, darling. Be careful out there. Paulina,

it’s Julie. Julie? Why are you at the cabin? Well, I just wanted a little overnight getaway. You know, just take a break from the house. And, uh, and I had no idea that Sarah had told the kids they could use the cabin for, for a little honeymoon. Oh, you had to stay there because of the snow. Exactly. Exactly.

And the roads are all blocked and nobody can get out. Even the ferry has stopped service. Oh, well, uh, where, where’s Chanel? I told Johnny to have her call me after her shower. Ha, but it’s the sweetest thing. They decided to take advantage of this weather. And the two of them are out, playing in the snow. Oh, well, well, I hope they, they dress warmly.

Oh yeah, yeah, I, I bundled them up, nice and toasty. Um, all right. Well, just please tell her to call me. Yeah, yes, yes. Bye bye. I’ll have her do that. Bye. Um, I’m sorry that you were put on the

spot like that. Yeah, yeah. Alexander questioning you and all. Comes with the territory. Can’t blame him when he wants to know who set him up. And my shooter is his link to finding out. Honey, I hate all the trouble that I’ve just brought you away. Clyde did that, not you. Yeah, but it made things complicated.

You still covered my ass. Yeah, I used Stefan to help you, and I would do it again. Look, Stefan’s a little weasel, but he was under Clyde’s control, like you were. And not for long.

I really do have to get going. How much time has the DA’s office recommended that Stephan DiMera serve as part of his plea deal? Considering you guys are family, any nepotism or conflict of interest would be very interesting for our readers. Oh, and yet here you are. Questioning me? Isn’t that a conflict of interest, little brother?

And in regards to the Stefan DiMera case, there was a hearing this morning. The outcome has yet to be decided. Now, while Stefan’s attorney gave it her best go, I am quietly confident that he will serve justly for his role in the distribution of tainted narcotics throughout Salem and the surrounding areas.

Actually, I already have.

Doug, darling, I am taking deep breaths. Well, Johnny’s out looking for Chanel and the moment he comes back with her and the roads are plowed out I’m gonna get the hell off this island Of course, of course, I’ll be careful darling it did hang on It’s Paulina again, can’t this woman give it a rest

Johnny said I had to pick it up, otherwise it would be much worse if she went to voicemail. Honey, hang on, hang on, just hang on a second.

Me again! Julie, what is going on out there? And where’s my daughter? And my son in law? Uh, just let me check. Darling? Darling, it’s me again. Uh, listen, I need an excuse for Chanel’s not answering Paulina. I can’t tell her the truth. Listen, if she finds out that her daughter’s missing, the woman will panic.

Well, honey, if you can’t come up with any Listen, I gotta I gotta take this. I’ll I’ll call you back.

Paulina, you’re not gonna believe this. You’re damn right I’m not. My daughter is missing. Oh, God, you heard me. Tell me the truth, Julie. Now, how long has Chanel been missing, and where is Johnny? Okay, this is exactly what happened. Johnny went out to get some firewood and he was gone a while and Chanel thought he’d been gone too long, so she went out to find him.

About 10 minutes went by. Then Johnny came back with firewood, but no Chanel. So now Johnny’s gone out again to find Chanel. Oh, my lord. I’m so sorry, sweetheart. I I I didn’t want to worry you because there’s no reason to worry. I’m sure the two of them are gonna be just walking through that door any second now.

Well, there they are. Where is Chanel?

You surprised to see me, brother? Sorry to steal your limelight. And, uh, how did this happen? Judge followed the law, agreed to time served, and I’m a free man. That’s it for today. No more questions. Thank you all for coming. EJ. EJ, we’re not done here yet. Did you advocate for your brother’s release? He’s not going to answer.

Let’s go talk to Stephen. Hey, uh, do you need me? There’s somewhere I need to be. Uh, no, no, no. Thank you for coming. I got it. Sure, but honestly, my motivation was to grill EJ about who set me up. He doesn’t seem very interested in finding out who’s behind it. Or who shot Michaels. Well, I’ll let you know if I find anything.

This is unbelievable. I’ll catch up with you later, mate. So you wound your way out of prison. How’d you pull that off? You son of a bitch. Start talking, now.

Hey, you made it. How’d the press conference go? I don’t know. What a joke. EJ called the conference before the press even arrived. We missed most of that slimeball. Did you confront him about your case? Yes. No news on that front. I wouldn’t hold your breath for anything to change there. The whole thing was bizarre.

Why? What happened? Well, get this. Stefan DiMera showed up. What?! He’s in jail. Not anymore.

You allowed Stefan to go free. How could you be so reckless? Me? You covered up the ID of your own shooter to cover for this slippery snake. Someday you’ll regret that. Speaking of which, how’s Susan doing these days?

What is your problem? You are my problem. You are my daughter’s problem. You helped put those drugs on the street that almost killed her. My God, those pills could have slipped through your hands. You know what? I get it. Holly is not a Demira. But she is family. You and I are family. Nicole, I feel terrible.

About what happened to Holly and I never intended on anybody getting hurt I only allowed those drugs to get picked up and dropped off the loading dock and that was under the threat of bodily harm to my wife You have to believe me when I tell you I had no idea those drugs were laced with opioids I Only did what I did to protect my wife.

That is it and I am so Sorry Well, you should be apologizing to my daughter. But you’re not going to because I don’t want you anywhere near her. Well, that may be difficult since we live in the same house. What? Oh, don’t be too sure about that. Hey, hey, hey. Are you okay? I, I, I don’t understand this. Chad, how could that loser be free after what he did?

I know Clyde was putting the screws to him, threatening Gabby, but he could have told the police or EJ or anyone. Someone could have done something. Because Stefan thinks he can handle everything on his own. Okay, well he’s handled it brilliantly this time. I know. I’m sorry. Why? You didn’t do anything. I know, but that’s my family.

And that should have never happened.

Paulina called again? Yes! And she knows that Chanel is in the sink. I just called 911.

Hey, Paulina, hey, it’s, uh, it’s Johnny. Johnny? Did you find her? No, not yet, but Julie’s calling for help. All right. And, and, uh, and I’m, and I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I didn’t tell you sooner. Oh, well, how long has she been missing? I don’t know. Maybe 30, 40 minutes. My God. Oh, she’s out, out there in the snow storms.

Oh, she could freeze to death. Okay, look, Paulina, please don’t panic, all right? I will find her. I’ll search this whole island if I have to. Well, you better. Oh, my poor baby girl. It’s a snowstorm out there. She’s cold and alone. What? Oh, I cannot just sit here and do nothing.

Hey, Shelby, Shelby, it’s me. Yes, you need to connect me to the Salem Public Works. Now!

So, um, Um, Looks like I won’t be paying a visit to Stefan at the jail today, after all. But didn’t Stefan confess to helping Clyde run drugs through the Bistro? Yep. Then how the hell is he out of jail? He must have made a deal with the judge. I mean, look, he’s a demerit. Can’t be surprised that he played dirty.

Maybe there was blackmail involved. This is so wrong. You have no idea the amount of ODs I have seen come through the hospital. Holly wasn’t even close to the worst of it. There’s lives being destroyed, families are grieving. It’s unbelievable, I mean, Stephan helping to poison his own town. Maybe EJ finagled a deal for him.

You think he got him out? I mean, it doesn’t seem like they care too much for each other, but You know, these DiMeras, they’re shady tricks, who knows, right? But Stefan, he was up to his neck in this mess with Clyde. I just can’t help but wonder if maybe he did play a role in making it seem like I was the guilty party in Harris shooting.

What if he did? Believe me, if Stefan was involved in throwing me under the bus, There’ll be hell to pay.

You are not your family, Chad. You bear no responsibility for what Stefan did. Quite the opposite, actually. I mean, you wrote that article about Stefan working for Clyde. No, Everett Lynch dug up that story. He’s the one that wrote it. Okay, but you published it and you didn’t have to. You put your family’s dirty laundry in the headlines.

That says so much about your integrity. Well, I’ve made my fair share of mistakes, Nicole. Haven’t we all? Look, you did the right thing. And I, you know, I remember when I was a TV reporter, And we had decisions that were hard to make, some tough calls. Wait a second, you were a reporter? Yeah, I mean a really long time ago.

Oh gosh, I remember those days. I loved it so much. You know, chasing after a story and figuring out how to tell it and working against the clock. Every day was exciting. Don’t get any ideas about reneging on our deal, brother. After that pathetic performance in court this morning. What deal? You signed over everything to me.

And you agreed to give back half. How can I give you back half a house? Shall we grab some chalk and draw a line through the center of the mansion? No, forget the house. DiMera, you and I go back to running DiMera together as co CEOs. I don’t think the board or the shareholders will want that. They will not want you back.

You’re a convicted felon. They made it very clear that it would not be a good idea for the company or you. Fine, you’re CEO, but I get everything else. I don’t think so.

You didn’t happen to tell Chad. About our little deal, did ya? Or Kristen? Certainly not. Good. Because I’d hate to see anybody else try to get their paws on what’s mine. You said earlier that your blackmail is better than my blackmail. You’re wrong. You see, EJ, if you don’t hold up your end of the deal, and give me back what’s rightfully mine, I’m gonna tell Nicole that you knew drugs were being moved through the bistro.

And that I came to you for help, and you refused to do a thing about it. You wouldn’t. Wouldn’t I? EJ, if Nicole finds out That you could have prevented Holly’s OD. She’ll never forgive you. And you know it.

Are they coming? Help is on the way. Uh, those first responders will be here as soon as they can get through and until then we just gotta sit tight. Damn it. I mean, where, where, where, where could she be? I’ve been everywhere. She could have slipped on the ice. She could have just gotten turned around with all the snow falling and Yeah, yeah, the uh, the visibility is pretty bad.

She could have just, she could have just lost the trail. Right. I just, I came back to get the, the sled in case uh, In case she’s hurt or something. I gotta get back out there and find my wife. What do you mean it’ll be hours before you can clear the bridge? Yes. Well, I realize that it’s still coming down, but that is not acceptable.

I’m the mayor of Salem and you will have the head of your plow crew call me immediately. I need you to understand that you are my mother, and I love you, and I need you. So don’t you dare talk about leaving this planet any time soon, because I will not put up with it. Do you hear me? Oh, alright, baby, alright.

You have officially gotten through to me, okay? I’m sorry, I’m so sorry. Yeah, you should be. Oh, well. Okay, how about this? Promise, I will not leave this planet for a very long, long time.

[ Upbeat music ]

Luna: It was a mistake, rj. I swear, and I’m just so, so sorry. I never meant to hurt you or betray you. I mean, I love you more than anything.

Rj: You and zende.

Zende: This has to stay between us. I don’t want anyone to question luna’s integrity. She didn’t mean for any of this to happen.

Carter: Well, you said she’s with rj now. It might not be a secret for much longer.

Zende: Luna has to be honest. She’s telling rj the truth.

Liam: Yeah, who knew hippos could stay under water so long, huh?

Hope: It felt like we were standing there forever, though.

Liam: We were.

Hope: Beth was so patient.

Liam: Yeah, that’s not a virtue she inherited from her father, ’cause I was ready to get a snow cone.

Hope: Well, if you had, you would’ve missed the expression on beth’s face when the hippo finally arose for air. It was like… it was so adorable. Thank you. Us gonna the zoo together was a good idea.

Liam: Yeah, well, it wasn’t even my idea, really. It was– it was beth’S.

Hope: Well, yes, but I just thank you for making the time to make it happen with me.

Liam: No, of course, anything for that kid. I’ve, uh… I’ve taken a lot of good things in my life for granted. Beth is never gonna be one.

Liam: I should, uh, yeah, I should probably let you get back to work.

Hope: I mean, there’s– there’s no rush today, really.

Liam: No? Really? I get, well, okay, yeah, I guess things have gotten a little less, uh, chaotic ever since…

Hope: Oh, you mean since thomas left?

Liam: Yeah, well, I figured just ’cause he was, you know, he was your lead designer that, um…

Hope: Yeah. You know he was a lot more to me than just that.

Carter: It’s obvious how much you care about luna.

Zende: Carter, I hate what this has done to her. What she has to deal with. And what she can lose. I never meant to hurt her like that. I didn’t mean to turn her world upside down. I really thought that we shared something special. And if things had happened differently, that maybe someday we could have. If it weren’t for poppy and her damn mints.

Carter: Poppy.

Poppy: Oh, sorry, I didn’t mean to interrupt. Is luna here?

Zende: No. She’s with rj, telling him that we spent the night together.

Luna: You have to believe me, rj. Okay, I wasn’t myself, I– look, I’m not trying to make excuses for myself.

Rj: No, it sounds like you are.

Luna: No, no, I– I told you about the mints and what they did to me.

Rj: You were drugged.

Luna: Accidentally, yes, by my mother. And that’s why I left eric’s party early, and I went outside, and I– I ended up in one of the guest houses with water because I was so thirsty. And when zende came in, it was like– like I was hallucinating. Because of the drugs and the champagne. I mean, rj, I seriously, i really thought that it was you. It was him, but I saw you.

Rj: He didn’t realize that. You’re telling me that he didn’t realize that you were that out of it. And he saw you laying there, and he saw his chance, and he took it.

Luna: No.

Rj: Zende found you in his guest house and he took advantage of you?

At dot’s an ordinary pretzel

just isn’t enough.

Hope: I, uh, I have been thinking a lot lately about the evolution of my relationship with thomas. What drew us together, what we meant to each other.

Liam: Um, I don’t know. Do I need to hear the details on this? Unless you’ve got some new perspective?

Hope: Well, I am trying to look at the bigger picture now that I am a little more removed from it. How we got from point a to point b, and everything in between, and in my relationship with thomas before, you know, before he changed, when everything was different.

Liam: His involvement in what happened with beth?

Hope: No. Liam, I will never deny the fact that thomas lied to us. That he tried to keep our daughter from us. But he regrets that decision. It haunts him. And liam, I understand that you may never be able to forgive him for it, but I did. I believed that he was capable of changing for the better. And he did. And so, when he proposed, I just– I– I am asking myself why I couldn’t say yes. So now, I’m not sure. I don’t know what the future holds for thomas and me.

Poppy: You told him?

Zende: Everything. And soon, rj will know too.

Poppy: Luna’s been wanting to go to rj with the truth for a while now. I encouraged her to do it.

Zende: Yeah, after weeks of telling her not to.

Poppy: I know. And that was a mistake. One of many I’ve made in this situation.

Carter: Why the 180?

Poppy: Because I love my daughter. And keeping this secret is causing her too much pain. Luna is an honest and principled person. And lying to the man she loves, it’s eating her up inside.

Zende: It was luna’s first instinct to be honest. Tell the truth, face the consequences. We tried to talk her out of it because we knew what those consequences might be. What they would do to her.

Carter: It’s not her fault and rj can’t blame her.

Zende: She can hope he doesn’T. She can try to make him understand. But even if rj’s head gets it, his heart might not. Rj is gonna be blindsided by this. I’m not sure that he’ll be able to forgive her.

Luna: No, it wasn’t like that.

Rj: It wasn’t like that. So either you knew what was happening or you didn’T. Which is it, luna?

Luna: I– I didn’T.

Rj: But so you passed out on zende’s bed and he took advantage of you?

Luna: No, I wasn’t passed out. I was just– I was confused.

Rj: And he used that. He used that to get what he’s wanted. What he’s wanted for a really long time.

Luna: No, I wasn’t myself, okay? But zende didn’t know that. Zende didn’t realize that I was drugged. And you didn’t either. I mean, if you would’ve known, you would’ve never let me go home by myself.

Rj: You didn’t go home. You went to the guest house. Why?

Luna: Not to go find zende! Zende misunderstood why I was there. I mean, this is all that this is. It’s just a big misunderstanding.

Rj: It’s not a misunderstanding, luna. He’s been hitting on you for months. He’s never respected us. Or me. Or our relationship. Or you. Or any of this!

Luna: No, that’s not what happened.

Rj: Do not tell me that this was an accident. Don’t lie to me and tell me that it was an accident right now, luna.

Luna: I know you don’t want to hear that. I know, but it’s the truth. And that’s why I’m here, to be honest with you. And look, you’re– you’re heartbroken and I am too. And I’m sorry. It’s horrible and it kills me to see you in pain. But zende did not take advantage of me. Okay, you need to know that, rj. Please, you have to hear me out. It was those mints that messed me up. I saw– I saw you. I thought it was you. I mean, you’re my boyfriend. You’re the– you’re the person that I love.


Hope: Yeah, I’ve been questioning everything lately.

Liam: Oh, yeah. I mean, the guy whose stability you’ve been defending for months just skipped town ’cause he wouldn’t commit fast enough.

Hope: Yeah, I’ve– I’ve been asking myself why. You know, why I– i couldn’t make that kind of commitment. And I don’t know. Things were going so well. Up until the point, like right until it ended, we were– we were clicking. You know, I remembered my mom. Um… she said something insightful when she saw the ring around the necklace for the first time and she wasn’t too pleased about it. She said that my involvement with thomas was a reaction. And at the time, I denied it and I didn’t think much of it until recently. Finn also mentioned that it might’ve been a bit of a rebellion on my part.

Liam: Against what?

Hope: Liam, you know my mother’s history and what she has been labeled as in the past. And I swore to myself that i would never, ever be like that. So that when I did start to feel a pull to someone else, someone who was steadfast, supportive, a one-woman man. Liam, just know I wasn’t trying to hurt you.

Liam: For what it’s worth, I– I know that. I know you weren’t deliberately trying to hurt me.

Hope: Well, I’ve had a lot of time on my hands lately to do some soul-searching and I am, uh, not afraid to admit when I was wrong. Have I turned into my mother? No. But was I maybe daring to walk on the wild side a bit? Yes. But I was playing with fire. But did I intend to hurt you? Did I set out to hurt you? No. Was I toying with thomas? No. Was I purposely trying to use him? Absolutely not. There is one thing that I am certain of. It is my feelings for him.

Poppy: I’m the one who should be paying for this. Not my daughter.

Zende: Your special mints ruined a lot.

Poppy: Well, I’m not taking them anymore. I threw them all away.

Zende: Good, but how does that help luna? It doesn’t change what happened.

Poppy: No. But… it might help us reconnect as mother and daughter.

Carter: But are you quitting for yourself or just to win your daughter back?

Poppy: Luna’s gonna need me. If zende is right and rj can’t forgive her, I have to be completely present for her.

Carter: I think that’s wise, for luna’s sake and for yourself.

Poppy: I have devoted my entire life to luna’s safety, her security, and her happiness. Every decision I made has been for her. You know, as a parent, nothing is more important than the well-being of your child. And luna has found a man that she truly loves. And she could be losing him. Because of me.

Luna: I never meant to betray you, rj. I’m so sorry. I should– I should have come to you right away. That next morning, I should’ve told you exactly what happened.

Rj: You didn’t, luna. You’ve been hiding it from me this whole time. Every moment that we’ve been together, here at the office.

Luna: I’m sorry. I was afraid of what it could do to your relationship with zende. You guys are cousins. You’re family. And you guys work together. It’s just– it’s all just a terrible misunderstanding.

Rj: No, maybe for you. Because you thought he was me. Yes?

Luna: Yes, I swear. I saw your face.

Rj: He saw yours, luna. He knew exactly what he was doing and who he was with.

Luna: Rj, wait, please. Don’t go right now. You’re too upset. Rj! Rj. Life, diabetes, there’s no slowing down. but I do love thomas.

Hope: I know you don’t want to hear it, liam. But I do love thomas. But now I’m at a point in my life, though, where I just want to focus on beth. You know, focus on her, and then myself, and the line.

Liam: You know, what’s funny is I– I feel like I’m going through the exact same thing. Kids, family, work. Of course, beth and kelly are my highest priorities, but…

Hope: So that’s it, then? That’s– that’s the whole list?

Liam: Well, I am a spencer, so there’s always world domination. Although that’s, uh, fairly low on the list at the moment. I think I know what you’re implying. And I think I have to get over this thing where I feel like I don’t have an identity unless I’m with someone. And maybe I do. Maybe I– maybe my identity is dad. Just being the best– best dad I can be.

Hope: Sounds like we are going through the same thing at the same time.

Liam: Well, look at us. Finding our way.

Hope: Who knows what the future will bring us.

Luna: Rj, I’m– I’m gonna keep calling until you answer or text me back. I just– I need to know if you’re okay.

[ Knock on door ]

Luna: Rj? Mom.

Poppy: I didn’t see rj’s car.

Luna: He left.

Poppy: You told him.

Luna: I had to. He deserved to know. I mean, I should’ve told him that day. I should’ve told him the second I realized what happened.

Poppy: How did he… wait, you said he left. Oh, honey.

Luna: He was so upset, mom. I broke his heart. And it– and it kills me to see him in so much pain. And knowing that I’m the one that caused it.

Poppy: It wasn’t your fault. It was mine.

Luna: No. I made the decision to lie to him. And I– I deceived him. And– and that’s what hurts him the most. And now, he’s so angry and upset. And I’m afraid that he went to go confront zende. I mean, I don’t know what could happen.

Rj: You, you son of a bitch.

Zende: Rj, whoa, listen.

Rj: You knew that we were together and happy.

Zende: Fine, blame me. Don’t blame her, okay?

Rj: Damn right, I blame you!

Phyllis: Do you want this risotto? So good, here.

Daniel: I’ll take your word for it, thank you.

Phyllis: All right, so tell me what lily said. Don’t leave out details.

Daniel: Well, first, I, um, I tried to reason with her.

Phyllis: Oh, I bet that went over well.

Daniel: I’m sorry, did you want me to tell you, or did you want to, yeah?

Phyllis: No, no, tell me.

Daniel: Yeah?

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Daniel: Um, I told her that I understood that technically, omegasphere was owned by chancellor-winters.

Phyllis: You didn’t even have to give her that much. Carry on.

Daniel: Then I told her that I thought it would only be fair if she let me take back princess louisa and a few of the other games that I, you know, designed and developed.

Phyllis: And let me guess, she didn’t budge.

Daniel: Nope, not an inch. So then, I told her that I would be filing a lawsuit to get it all back.

Phyllis: Wow, daniel, good for you. You stood your ground, you didn’t waffle.

Daniel: It’s just sad. Sad that this is what it’s come to.

Phyllis: Yeah, it’s sad for lily. You stood your ground, you followed your heart, and I support you 100%.

Daniel: Thank you. No, really, thank you, I appreciate that. So does heather. Um, but fair warning, things are probably gonna get pretty ugly between me and chancellor-winters when this all shakes out, so seeing as you still work in the division that I’m no longer a part of, um, some of that fallout might fall on you.

Christine: So, where are lucy and daniel?

Danny: Lucy is at a sleepover, daniel is out for the evening, which means we have the entire place to ourselves. And tomorrow is the big day.

Christine: Yes, it is.

Danny: Which is why I wanna prove to you, come right this way, that this tour is not gonna be all work, so I have created an itinerary.

Christine: Danny, I–

Danny: What?

Christine: I just wanted to talk to you about something first.

Danny: Yeah, no, of course, of course, great. No, we’ll talk, but first, let me show you the list. Take a look at this. Look, I don’t mean to brag, but I could have been a travel agent if the whole music business thing hadn’t panned out. Here, come on, look at this. All the stops on the tour, all the great sites, all the great restaurants. I wanna share everything with you. It’s gonna be so awesome.

Christine: Daniel, just hold on one second.

Danny: Okay. What’s up?

Christine: I just hate the thought of letting you down.

Nick: Okay.

Victor: Have you heard anything about jordan?

Nick: I’ve been talking with security all night. There’s been no sign of her. Maybe she really did get on that train out of town.

Victor: I don’t believe that for a minute.

Jack: So, how are you doing?

Nikki: Well, it’s been quite the night.

Jack: Yes, it has. That’s not what I meant. I know this is a dry party.

Nikki: I’m holding up.

Jack: Good. It was a great celebration of you and victor, but just know, sometimes even an alcohol-free party is a tough place for someone in recovery. I’m very proud of you.

Nikki: Don’t be too proud.

Jack: What does that mean?

Nikki: The party may be alcohol-free, but… I’m afraid I’m not.

Kyle: You have a good time tonight, bud?

Harrison: But they didn’t have cake.

Kyle: Well, maybe next time.

Harrison: Do you think they liked my present?

Kyle: Great-grandma and grandpa? Are you kidding? They loved it. Nikki said she put it in a place of honor, right?

Harrison: Yeah.

Kyle: Well, I’m guessing aunt traci and aunt ashley went up to bed, which means it’s time for pj’s and brushing teeth. So, if you go fast, we’ll have time for a book. Is that a deal?

Harrison: Sounds good, dad.

Kyle: Cool.

Harrison: Wait.

Kyle: What is it?

Harrison: My lucky charm. It’s gone.

Kyle: Are you sure?

Harrison: I had it in my pocket.

Kyle: Okay. Okay, well, um… huh, maybe it fell out somewhere. We can look for it in the morning.

Harrison: No, we can’T. I need to find it now. I won’t be able to sleep without it, dad. I have to find it, please!

Claire: Good night, larry. For people who feel limited What? You expect me toth my brilliant son. But if for sure go there, becaus

Daniel: I’m not saying that lily would for sure go there, because you are brilliant at what you do, but there is the chance that your position could be a casualty–

Phyllis: So what? So what?

Daniel: I thought you loved that job.

Phyllis: I did, but only because I was working with my brilliant son. But if you’re not there, what’s the point?

Daniel: The point would be to continue to make a living, which you need to do.

Phyllis: I can get a job anywhere.

Daniel: Mom.

Phyllis: No, don’t mom me. What? You expect me to keep on working there with lily and devon looking over my shoulder all the time? And me knowing that they unceremoniously fired you for some childish reason? You’re the best thing to ever happen to that company, by the way. You know what? I should go in today and quit in solidarity. In fact, I should get your entire team to walk out. Omegasphere is amazing, and it’s yours, and what better way to prove it?

Danny: Why– why are you apologizing? I– I’m confused. I’m sorry.

Christine: Okay. Um, yesterday, out of the blue, I got a call from an old colleague who told me about this huge case where the accused is specifically asking me to represent them.

Danny: Okay.

Christine: Normally, I would just– I would explain that my practice is being suspended, but I’ve known this person for a really long time and they’re in a bind.

Danny: Um, how much time are we– we talking about?

Christine: Months.

[ Danny sighing ]

Danny: So, okay. So, what you’re saying is you won’t be able to go on the road with me.

Christine: No, I’m just saying, like, I’m really torn because there’s this part of me that wants to shut my laptop down and turn off my phone and take off. I have been so looking forward to this adventure with you, and I still am.

Danny: What about the other part?

Christine: The other part is I’m an attorney, and when a once-in-a-lifetime case comes up, I can’t help but being pulled back in. But danny, what you and I have, it’s also a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing. So, what do you do when– when two things collide?

Nikki: The other day, after jordan’s cohort sent me that drink, I really freaked out and I immediately went to buy a bottle of vodka.

Jack: Why didn’t you call me first?

Nikki: I know. I should have, but I didn’t think I would be able to get through tonight without it. So, I convinced myself that I could moderate how much I drank until after the party, but I really needed it because I was certain that jordan was gonna show up and try something.

Jack: Wait, wait, back up. Why would you say that?

Nikki: Part of the reason for this party was to lure her out of hiding.

Jack: Wait, this was victor’s idea?

Nikki: No, it was mine. Jack, I– I– I am just sick of running. I am tired of looking behind my shoulder, waiting for something terrible to happen. So, I thought I would use this event as a way to bring her out in the open, but I guess I was wrong because she didn’t show, at least she hasn’t yet.

Jack: So, you have been fortifying yourself all night long with alcohol in the hopes that this psychopath would catch up with you and find you?

Nikki: That was the plan.

Jack: It’s a bad plan.

Nikki: I realize that now, but in the midst of everything, something amazing happened.

Kyle: Okay, I’ve checked outside, we’ve checked in the car, but bunny isn’t there.

Harrison: His name is lucky-bun now. I was so stupid to lose him.

Kyle: No, no, no, no, no, don’t think that. You know what I think?

Harrison: What?

Kyle: I think maybe we left it at the table we were sitting at. Do you remember taking it out of your pocket when we were there?

Harrison: Maybe.

Kyle: Well, I bet you an ice cream sundae it’s sitting right there safe and sound.

Harrison: Can we go back and get him?

Kyle: I’ve got a better idea. I’ll call mom and get her to bring him over.

Harrison: Right now?

Kyle: Right now. Now, go upstairs and get ready for bed. I’ll be up in a minute, okay?

Summer: Excuse me.

Nick: I mean, do you still get the phone calls?

[ Phone ringing ]

Summer: Hey, is everything okay?

Kyle: We think harrison left his lucky bunny charm at the table we were sitting at. Do you think you could take a look and see if you can find it?

Summer: Oh my gosh, yes. Um, here, hold on, I will look. I don’t see it anywhere.

Kyle: Damn, he’s so upset. I hope the waitstaff didn’t toss it.

[ Doorbell ringing ] Um, someone’s at the door. I’ll check back with you in a bit.

Summer: Okay, bye.

Claire: Missing someone? (Vo) it’s shrimp your way. Stay there and, oh, to see you lose your job

Daniel: Listen, I appreciate your loyalty, but I don’t want to see you lose your job over this.

Phyllis: Oh, you act like it’s the only job in the world.

Daniel: You have to work. That’s a fact.

Phyllis: What do you expect me to do? Stay there and, oh, tiptoe around lily and devon? Little– little office mouse? After I know they sold my son’s life’s work? I’d rather live on the street.

Daniel: Oh, you’re just gonna quit?

Phyllis: I haven’t figured out my next move, actually. Don’t worry. I’m not someone who just waits for something to fall in their lap. I go and get my opportunities.

Daniel: Ooh, there it is. That’s that tone. Ha ha, I know that tone. That’s the one that sets alarms off in my head. You’re already cooking something up, aren’t you?

Phyllis: Not necessarily.

Daniel: Don’t “not necessarily me.” I know that look. What kind of opportunities are you talking about?

[ Phone pinging ]

Adam: I’m sorry.

Sally: No, don’t apologize.

Adam: I don’t know why I would be expecting to hear from connor at this hour. It’s just reflex, I guess, or wishful thinking.

Sally: Look, I know this is hard, but maybe in this case, no news is a good thing.

Adam: Um, I wish that I could believe that.

Sally: Think of it this way. The clinic hasn’t called you to come pick up connor and bring him home, you know? So maybe they’re making progress and the therapy is working.

Adam: Oh, god, I hope so.

Sally: You’re gonna make yourself sick with worry. What can I do? Please tell me how I can make this easier for you.

Kyle: Oh, you are the hero of the hour. Harrison will be so relieved to see that, thank you.

Claire: Oh, it was no big deal. I just happened to see lucky-bun sitting there.

Kyle: Right, yes, his new name. But you didn’t have to bring it all the way over. You could’ve called and i would’ve picked it up in the morning.

Claire: And risked the bad luck jinx?

Kyle: You got me there. Clearly, I have never had a lucky charm.

Claire: Well, they’re very important things, you know. A friend, a protector, something to count on, no matter what. I know it sounds childish, but–

Kyle: No, no, not at all. What were you about to say?

Claire: I know how important it is to harrison and I didn’t want my new little friend to go even a single night without it. I know when I got my lucky charm taken away, I… I didn’t sleep for a week.

Kyle: Wait, wait a minute. You said you lost it.

Claire: I lied.

Jack: Amazing is a pretty big word.

Nikki: Well, that’s what it felt like.

Jack: Tell me more about what happened.

Nikki: Well, I had my flask in my purse and whenever I would feel anxious, I would slip away and take a shot.

Jack: You didn’t seem tipsy, you didn’t seem drunk. I’m pretty good at recognizing those signs.

Nikki: That’s because I was able to stop. That’s the amazing part of being here tonight with all of my friends and family, knowing how much they support me. I was able to fight the urge to keep drinking. I didn’t want to let down the people who care about me, particularly you.

Jack: No, more importantly, you didn’t want to let yourself down.

Nikki: I felt strong. For the first time, I feel like I can beat this thing. It was like somebody opened a curtain and let the light back in. I didn’t need the alcohol. I had love all around me and I felt free.

Jack: Wow.

Victor: Everything all right?

Nikki: Everything is more

Nikki: Everything is more than just all right, darling. It’s been a wonderful evening.

Jack: I was just telling nikki how proud I was that she faced down her urge to drink tonight.

Victor: Is that right?

Nikki: Well, yes. I– I had it at first, but then it passed.

Jack: And kudos to you for having an alcohol-free party like this. Very thoughtful and I think it helped.

Victor: Thank you, jack. I’m very proud of my wife.

Jack: Well, thank you both. A lovely evening.

Victor: Same to you.

Phyllis: I don’t want to talk about me, let’s talk about you. I’m more interested in what your plans are.

Daniel: You’re changing the subject.

Phyllis: So, if you win the lawsuit, will you take your games and create another company?

Daniel: I don’t know. I haven’t thought that far ahead. I’m just trying to take it one day at a time.

Phyllis: It’s exhausting, isn’t it?

Daniel: Yes, talking to you is exhausting.

Phyllis: No, smart guy, not talking to me. Standing up for what you believe in. You’re just trying to save your family. And I understand that. You shouldn’t have to pay for that.

Daniel: Mom, I don’t–

Phyllis: I mean, I know that it’s embarrassing for lily, I get it. I understand, but it’s not like the two of you were a great love story.

Daniel: Mom.

Phyllis: You and heather, on the other hand, you are a great love story. You’re trying to raise your daughter together. I mean, you shouldn’t have to pay for that.

Daniel: Mom.

Phyllis: Don’t “mom” me.

Daniel: Could we please talk about something else?

Phyllis: Okay. What do you want to talk about?

Daniel: You and dad? I mean, you were spending a lot of time talking about your friendship and how, you know, that was a sign of bigger things to come and then nothing.

Phyllis: Okay, well, there’s nothing to tell. Um, we took a step back and we realized the timing wasn’t right and we would not pursue things.

Daniel: Or maybe you finally had to admit to yourself that romance was never really on the table.

Danny: I can’t choose for you, cricket. As much as I’d like to, because I would probably make the selfish choice, but this is your career and I’m not gonna do anything to stand in your way.

Christine: Yeah, I don’t even know if I want this career anymore.

Danny: Would it really be a debate if you weren’t really missing the action here?

Christine: I think it’s about being wanted, you know? That feeling when someone says, “you’re the answer. You’re the only one who can do this.” So, when I got that call…

Danny: Hey, I get it, okay? I really do. I mean, I get this feeling whenever we book a tour or sell out a venue. I can’t judge you for wanting that same sense of satisfaction.

Christine: But you give me that feeling too. That feeling of being wanted and it’s not about my skills or my education. It’s about me and I want you and it’s not about your singing or your image. It just, it feels right when we’re together.

Danny: Because it is right. I’m not gonna hold you back. I mean, we both love what we do and that makes us probably the luckiest people I know and… well, I mean, this case isn’t gonna last forever and neither is my tour, so.

Christine: I know, I know. I can’t help feeling that this is our last best chance. That we found each other again because it was meant to be. So… how can I walk away from that?

Claire: I lied about my lucky charm because I didn’t want harrison to hear the real story.

Kyle: Right, not for kid’s ears. Got it. Well, I appreciate you trying to protect harrison, but I’m old enough to hear the real story, if you feel like sharing.

Claire: My aunt jordan always had to have control over everything. Back then, I didn’t realize that was partly because I was a stolen baby and she had constructed my entire life as one big lie. I was just a kid and I just wanted to do kid things. So, one day I was playing in the backyard and I found a stone laying in the grass. The white– looked like a crystal. I don’t know if it really was one, but I knew it was special to me, at least.

Kyle: Your lucky charm.

Claire: I hid it from jordan because I knew she wouldn’t want me to have something like that to count on. And when I was alone, I talked to it. I wished on it. I wished for friends and a real family. A happy life. And then one day, she caught me doing that. She snatched it away. And she told me that wishing was for fools, that I couldn’t count on luck, I could only count on her.

Kyle: Wow. I am so sorry to hear that, claire. That must have been awful for you.

Claire: It was just my life. It’s getting late. I should go.

Kyle: No, no. Please, stay.

If you’re taking

an antidepressant,

Announcer: The youngpatio seasonis all about saving.

Phyllis: You know, hey, hey, why’d you bring up your dad to me again? When you’re just gonna shoot down the idea?

Daniel: Because I know that it meant something to you. Being around him and, you know, feeling that support that dad is so good at. And, you know, let’s be honest, like a– a– a danny romalotti friendship, that’s like a stamp of approval. He doesn’t really hang out with people that suck.

Phyllis: I beg to differ.

Daniel: I bet you would. Listen, all I’m saying is if you wanna talk, I’m here to listen.

Phyllis: Thank you, I don’t wanna talk.

Daniel: Fine.

Phyllis: Okay, I moved on, by the way.

Daniel: Great.

Phyllis: Okay, is that a sarcastic great or a real great?

Daniel: No, that is– that is me dropping the subject, even though I know you’re hurt by this.

Phyllis: Okay, because it seems to me that you wanna say I told you so.

Daniel: I’m not gonna do that, no.

Phyllis: Okay, but I need to remind you that I’m the one who predicted you and heather and I never once said I told you so or asked for applause.

Daniel: Wow, well, you got me there. You were right, I was wrong. Let’s have dessert.

Phyllis: Okay. And I just wanna bring up for the last time, danny and the bug, they’re together. They’re– he made his choice. It’s, like, the most ridiculous choice, but he made it nonetheless, right? And– and I’m moving on. I’m not gonna let it slow me down, that’s for sure.

Danny: I have an idea.

Christine: Please, anything.

Danny: Don’t make any decisions right now. Just think about it, sleep on it, okay? And we’ll decide tomorrow morning, all right?

Christine: You really think that’s gonna make it easier?

Danny: Cricket, look at me. Hey. If this is gonna be our last night for a while, let’s enjoy every single second we have together, okay?

Sally: Look at them. After all the drama and conflict victor creates, to see the depth of love he still has for nikki after all these years is… really inspiring.

Adam: Well, the newmans do love hard and profoundly.

Sally: Good to know. Do you wanna go upstairs?

Adam: Come on.

Claire: This is all still so new to me. Being able to have adult conversation, just be a person without jordan monitoring me or judging my every move.

Kyle: I don’t know how you survived her.

Claire: I didn’t know any better. I, uh, my whole life, from the time I was little, just revolved around her needs and her grudges, her need for vengeance. And I went along with it because I was afraid of what would happen if I didn’T. Guess I’ve been afraid my whole life.

Kyle: You don’t have to be afraid anymore. You have friends, you have a family, you have a new life.

Claire: I know. And I get to make all these choices all by myself. Can be kind of overwhelming sometimes, but every day, I get a little bit more used to finally being free.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Harrison: Oh, hi claire.

Claire: Hey, harrison.

Kyle: Guess what? Look at what your new friend, claire, brought you.

Harrison: You found him! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Did you know… I’m thinking more liat a trick question?

Adam: So, I have a question now.

Sally: What?

Adam: Where do you see yourself in 40 years?

Sally: Well, that is a trick question.

Adam: How is that a trick question?

Sally: Because you’re angling to see if you’re still in the picture.

Adam: Well.

Sally: I hope so.

Adam: Well, I personally think that we could do 40 years together, easy. I’m thinking more like 50, 60.

Sally: That’s pretty ambitious.

Adam: I mean it.

[ Sally sighing ]

Sally: Really?

Adam: I don’t want it to end. I never want it to end.

Nick: How did you get past security?

Phyllis: Oh, my gosh, are you gonna give me a hard time too?

Nick: No, but the guards aren’t supposed to let anyone in who isn’t on the guest list. It doesn’t matter who they are.

Phyllis: Okay, okay, sorry. Jeez. They were very good at their job, by the way. I got past the gauntlet and then, you know, someone recognized who I was and they said I can come in. I didn’t know there was a party. Obviously, I wasn’t invited.

Nick: Summer didn’t tell you that it’s my parents’ 40th anniversary?

Phyllis: Mm-mm. Congratulations to your parents. That’s incredible, 40 years. Well, obviously summer didn’t want to remind me that I’m still persona non grata, so that’s why she didn’t tell me.

Nick: Yeah, that’s not like you.

Phyllis: What’s not like me?

Nick: Feeling sorry for yourself.

Phyllis: I’m not feeling sorry for myself.

Nick: You sure about that?

Phyllis: Yeah.

Nick: You’re not fishing for like a supportive compliment?

Phyllis: No. I mean, but if you want to give me a supportive compliment, I’ll take it.

Claire: Hey harrison, did you know that there are all different kinds of lucky charms?

Harrison: Really?

Claire: Yeah, if you find a penny on the street and you pick it up, it’s a lucky penny. Or if you look really hard in the backyard, you might find a four-leaf clover. Those are really good luck.

Harrison: I’ll have to look for one of those tomorrow.

Kyle: Mm-hmm, you got it.

Claire: Of course, in india, they believe that elephants are good luck. But it might be kind of hard to fit one of those in your pocket.

[ All laughing ]

Kyle: Okay, harrison, time to go up. You’ve had a big day and you need the shut eye.

Harrison: You said I could get a book. Can claire read it to me?

Claire: I couldn’t step on your dad’s toes like that.

Kyle: No, I think it’s a great idea.

Claire: You do?

Kyle: You two go upstairs. I’ll be up to say goodnight later.

Harrison: Thanks, dad.

Kyle: Mm-hmm.

[ Phone ringing ]

Summer: Kyle, hi.

Kyle: Hey.

Summer: Sorry, I still haven’t found it.

Kyle: It’s okay, problem solved. Claire found the bunny and brought it over.

Summer: And how– how did claire come to find it?

Kyle: She didn’t say, but I’m relieved. And so is our son.

Summer: Wait, is claire still there?

Kyle: Yeah, she’s upstairs reading harrison’s story.

Harrison: Do you know this one?

Claire: Let me see. This is one of my favorites.

Harrison: I have to go to the bathroom, but I’ll be right back.

Claire: Okay.

[ Claire screaming ] I would’ve called yesterday.

[ Indistinct chatting ]

Summer: Mom.

Phyllis: My goodness.

Summer: Hi.

Phyllis: Hey, oh, look at you. Surprised to see me here too. Listen, I told your father that you probably didn’t tell me about the party because you wanted to save me the embarrassment of knowing I wasn’t invited. Is that true?

Summer: Well, I didn’t know I was supposed to tell you. It’s kind of a newman thing.

Nick: She’s probably just worried you were gonna try and crash.

Phyllis: Listen, I was having a hard time for a while, but then I pulled myself out of that. You know? You both should know that things are about to bust wide open for me at chancellor-winters.

Nick: Phyllis, what are you up to?

Phyllis: You’ll know when the dust settles, but just know that, uh, I have big plans.

Summer: Be careful, mom.

Phyllis: Baby, you know I’m always careful.

Christine: I’m so happy.

Danny: So am I.

Christine: So, why can’t i just enjoy what we have and let the rest go? What is wrong with me?

Danny: Nothing is wrong with you, my love. You just have to make a decision, that’s all.

Christine: Oh, god, what if my decision keeps us apart?

Danny: No. That’s impossible. Listen. It took us this long to find each other, didn’t it? And in my book, it’s exactly as you said. You and I… cricket and danny are meant to be. So, whatever decision you make, it’s gonna be the right one.

Christine: I’m just–

Danny: Sh. Sh. It’s okay, it’s okay.

Michael: Victor, nikki, we are leaving, which means your party is officially over. Come here.

Nikki: Thank you so much for coming.

Michael: Oh, congratulations.

Lauren: So nice to see you. Happy, healthy years ahead.

Michael: Victor, congratulations.

Victor: Thanks, michael. Nice to see you.

Michael: All right.

Victor: Thank you for coming.

Michael: Take care.

Lauren: Bye bye.

Victor: Appreciate it. Thank you.

Nick: All right, party’s winding down, so I’m gonna take off too. Security is not gonna leave until everyone’s gone. The follow-up car is all set up for whenever you guys wanna leave.

Victor: No sign of jordan?

Nick: None.

Victor: Oh, okay. Anyway, son, thank you for making this a special evening for your mother and your father, okay?

Nick: Well, you two deserve it. I love you both. I’m just sorry that it had to come with, you know.

Victor: I know.

Nick: All right, good night, dad.

Victor: Good night, son. Yep.

Nick: Love you, mom.

Nikki: Love you too. Good night, son. Well, I was wrong. I thought jordan wouldn’t be able to resist this.

Victor: Well, at least she didn’t spoil anything. But I promise you one thing. I’m gonna catch her.

Nikki: I know. But it’s hard not to think that she’s still somewhere out there coming up with new ways to torment us.

Victor: And I don’t want you to think about that at all. This is an evening for the two of us. Just the two of us. I love you.

Nikki: I love you. Thank you so much.

Kyle: The abbott house. 603 glenwood. No, this is kyle abbott. Look, you need to send someone here right away.

Jack: Hey, hey, hey, what’s wrong?

Kyle: It’s claire. I think she’s taken harrison.

Diane: What?

I mean, even if nina doesn’t tell sonny directly, she’s gonna make sure that he hears that I slept with john cates. But just to be clear, I did not. Copy that. That’s new. What? I just — I don’t ever remember you saying, “copy that” before. Anyway , I don’t know what I’m worried about. I mean, sonny already considers me a traitor, so why would he care who I slept with? Because he loves you? Yeah. I don’t think he does anymore. Good afternoon, ms. Jerome. Hi, madison. I think ms. Reeves is expecting me. Oh, unfortunately, she’s been called away to guest services. Oh, I don’t mind waiting.

[ Sniffs, exhales ]

[ Clears throat ] Hello. Is this applied analytical? Good. I’m — I’m hoping you can help me. I think that there has been a mistake with my husband’s medication. If — if your lab was to test his pills, would you be able to identify the prescription and the strength? I can’t ask his pharmacy. They’re online. Oh, well, that’s wonderful. Thank you so much. I’ll messenger them today. Lucy: Well, needless to say, I have every intention of returning as the mistress of ceremonies for the nurses’ ball this year… so, how we doing? I just feel like it… see for yourself. …Isn’t quite the same without me. Oh, well, I love the nurses’ ball. I watch every year. Oh, you do? Well, thank you. That’s very kind of you. You know, sometimes we do have very special guests. Oh, yes, yes, and the guests always look so fabulous. So, tell us, what role does deception play in all that gorgeous hair and makeup? Oh, uh, well, of course, deception is so very important. But, you know, I have to say it’s not quite as important as wardrobe. I mean, especially my wardrobe, because sometimes I have had as much as a dozen gown changes. Of course, like I mentioned, I was unable to host last year. It was the first time ever. But I was lucky because I was able to run things remotely. Not the same as being there… don’t worry. I called the cavalry. I hope you mean a literal regiment of soldiers that will thunder in on horseback to distract the viewers from this disaster. No, no. Only one soldier. But the best one for the job. Well, they better get here soon ’cause we’re going down fast. You know, I-I started deception. I mean, it was my little brain child back in the ’90s.

[ Sighs ] Come on in. Is there something I can get from my favorite in-law to be? Oh, thank you, lois. I-I don’t want to take up too much of your time. I was just hoping to get a quick word with brook lynn. Oh, oh, you just missed her. She’s off doing something with deception. Is this about the wedding? As a matter of fact, it is. Well, then, you have come to the right person. As the mother of the bride, it is my honor and my pleasure to make sure that this wedding comes off without a hitch.

[ Sighs ]

[ Knock on door ] John: Am I interrupting? My god, what happened to you?

Now, I am sure that some of our viewers do remember that the ’90s were a very different time. You know what I remember most about the ’90s, lucy? No, haven, do — do tell. The hole in the ozone layer. The hole. T-the hole? Yes, yes, yes. It was an environmental crisis that affected everyone on earth, not just port charles. Ah, the ozone layer. Yes, and you know what layers were affected the most, lucy? Hmm? The epidermis and the dermis. Oh, I mean, I’m telling you, we could have used a face cream like the one you brought us today. We sure could have.

[ Laughs ] Well, tell us about it. But you know what? We didn’t have that. So I am just thinking that maybe subconsciously, that is exactly the idea that made me want to create deception. And you did. And now deception and home & heart would like to invite our home audience to enjoy deception’s new face cream at home. I never thought I’d hear myself say this, but thank god for haven. I don’t know how much more of the lucy chronicles I could take. Oh, don’t worry, the cavalry is here. Hey, maxie, I got here as quick as I could.

This is the cavalry? Shh! Scotty, this is what we need you to do. Get up on that stage and get lucy to talk about the product. Or just get her off the damn stage. I’ll take care of it. Lucy, I mean, come on, just a little dab just to show what it does. Oh! [ Laughs ] Oh, uh, no, haven. Thank you so much. You know, like I mentioned, this cream looks best, starts and works best, on completely washed skin. You do not put it over makeup. Oh, well, I’m sure we can get someone up here to get that makeup right off your face. On camera? Oh, yes, on camera. And your washed, un-made-up face will be in a nice, tight close-up. Well, haven, you know, that’ll only happen over one of our dead bodies. Yes — well, it’s a good thing I just showed up. Um, excuse me. This is a closed set. Oh, no. Actually, uh, it’s not a closed set to a dear, dear, uh, friend. Um, also, he happens to be the lawyer for deception. So, um, viewers out there, please welcome noted personal injury and defense attorney scott baldwin. Mm. Now, um, thank you for the warm welcome. About this face cream — oh, you know what I’m thinking? I-I just — memory lane. You know, 2013 nurses’ ball, we were on the stage at one point, and it takes me back to that nurses’ ball. Uh…[ Chuckles ] You know, um, actually, that was a time when 12 years went by and we did not have a nurses’ ball. And I knew I could not allow that unholy hiatus to go on one more year. Oh, well, it was worth a shot. Deception was nice while it lasted. Don’t give up yet. I’ve got one more hail mary. Cody, where are you? I’m ready for my ride! Oh, hi. Hi. Hi, tracy. You’re, uh, running a little late. Well, I hope that means my horse is saddled up and ready to go. Uh, actually — look, I wanted to tell you that I haven’t ridden in a while, so I want to just take him for a walk around the arena, just till I get my seat back. Yeah. O-okay, but, uh, so about the saddle… what about the saddle? I love that saddle. I rode that saddle for years! It’s a multi-generational saddle. But like you said, you haven’t used it for a while and there was a problem with the way that it was stored. That’s a dressage saddle. It was custom-made. If there is a problem with it, you are out on your hind end with no pillion to cushion you. I’m sure chase and brook lynn’s day will be hitchless, especially with you at the helm. Oh, well, you’re right, of course. But thank you for noticing. I just call it like I see it. Aw, well, sit down. Sit, sit, sit. So, come on, gregory. Tell me — what’s worrying you? Well, it’s a-a small thing, really. Do you need to change your, uh, entrée from chicken to fish? Is that it? Because, you know, there’s plenty of time. Oh, wait! Speaking of time, do you happen to have a copy of what you’re gonna be saying at the altar? I-it’s not because I need to approve anything at all. It’s just, I need to know how long it’s gonna take. Carly, how could sonny stop loving you? People fall out of love all the time, jason. You know that. Come on. Yes, but not you and sonny. Maybe you can’t live together. That’s happened before. But you still love each other. I tried! I mean, sonny was different after he came back from nixon falls. I mean, he was infatuated with nina. Yeah, he was different. And to sonny, nothing that happened could ever be nina’s fault. It was my fault. It was your fault. Hell, he thinks we went behind his back. He thought I was unfaithful to him. And when we got word that you had died, I felt like my heart was ripped out of my chest. But to sonny, he barely noticed you were gone.

Are you done threatening me, or is there more? It depends. I have to see my saddle.

[ Chuckles ] I thought you’d never ask. Sasha! Turns out sasha has a way with havana leather, no matter how old or water-damaged. I can’t believe that’s the same saddle. It’s a wonder what some balm in a sheepskin glove can do. Wow. I had no idea when you chose to leave deception that it would work out so well for me.

[ Chuckles ] You’re welcome, tracy. What are you waiting for? Put the saddle on the horse. Yes ma’am. I’ll be outside. Thank you. You just saved my hind end. Least I could do. It’s a nice hind end. By all appearances, I was the target of a mugging. What do you mean, “by all appearances”? I was attacked by two guys near the waterfront, came out of nowhere, laid me out, but didn’t get around to robbing me. Now, it could have been because the beating was interrupted, or — or it could have been orchestrated. Yeah. I’d bet my badge on it. I mean, for argument’s sake, you know the waterfront isn’t the safest part of town. Yeah, especially this area of the waterfront — a block from the corinthos coffee warehouse. Coincidence? That depends. What were you doing snooping around corinthos coffee? Sonny told me he was in love with nina, and then he tried to walk it back, telling me that they were leftover feelings from nixon falls or something like that. But I told him I wanted a separation, but sonny decided that we were gonna reconcile. More than that, he wanted to renew our wedding vows, and he gave me an ultimatum. If I didn’t show up, he’d know we were over. Did you show up? Yeah, I showed up. I was an hour late, and by then, sonny was in bed with nina. I literally walked in on them. I’m sorry, carly. It was awful. It was horrible. It was a big fight. Sonny blamed me.

[ Laughs ] And that’s when I stopped caring. That’s when I stopped caring what sonny thought and I stopped caring how sonny felt, and I asked him for a divorce. Well, I better get the lady of the manor mounted. Does she know she can’t fire you? Oh, yeah. Sure. But it doesn’t stop her from trying. Speaking of employment, this would be a great time for you to fill out those applications for all those jobs you don’t want. Do it. Or I could straighten up the tack room.

[ Cellphone vibrating ] I haven’t settled on a final draft of what I’m going to say. I’ve been rewriting myself for weeks now. I totally sympathize. I know that you want it all to be perfect. I’m just saying that when you do know what it is you’re gonna be saying, would you mind sending me a copy? I need to time out the ceremony so that I can let the kitchen at the metro court know when to start firing the food. I hadn’t realized. Oh, it’s crucial. Oh, it’s totally crucial. You have to have the food come out to the table when it’s hot, not when it’s overdone, definitely not when it’s been heated under those heating lamps, those contraptions — they need to be outlawed.

[ Cellphone rings ] Excuse me for one second. Oh, ah! Ooh, it’s brook lynn. It’s brook lynn. Wait, hold on. Hi, honey. Oh, I’m sitting here with your future father-in-law. Ma, listen! I need you to do something for me. It’s an emergency. Would you excuse me for one moment, please?

Sasha! Hey! Brook lynn has been trying to reach you. Oh, sorry. Hey, where’s my phone? There is a deception disaster. Lucy is crashing and burning on home & heart. Lucy? Yeah, she decided to do the spot herself, which, as I said, it is a complete disaster.

[ Sighs ] Now, listen, I don’t watch h&h myself, but my ma does. And you know who else watches it? All of my ma’s friends, and they all know that deception is brook lynn’s company. So lucy’s failure is deception’s failure is brook lynn’s failure, and we can’t let that happen. So, come on. I need you to go. Well, I’ll have to get changed. No, no, no! There’s no time. I already snagged the fastest ride in the garage. Can you drive a stick? Doesn’t matter. I can drive one. Let’s go! Now, do you know what I do remember in particular about that year, is all the obstacles I had to overcome. I mean, I had to together all these good people together for such a good cause and raise so much money for those very good people. Now, just like our viewers at home. Mm. Hello, viewers.

[ Clears throat ] So, uh, lucy, why don’t we tell the viewers how this face cream can take a mug like this and turn it into a matinee idol? Oh, wow. You know, I am so delighted to see you and have you here, uh, with us. But, you know, it’s kind of rude to interrupt. So where was I? Oh, right, uh there was a ball. There were nurses. And the year was 2014. Oh, yes, and your dear, dear friend scott showed up right at the end and kissed you… in your underwear… again. Thank you. Uh, uh, thank you so much. That’s so kind of you, haven, to remember that. Oh, yes, yes. I — I never forget a nurses’ ball. And, viewers, isn’t she unforgettable? And doesn’t she look great? And you know what? You can look great, too.

[ Chuckles ] Ava, I am so sorry to keep you waiting. Hi. No, it’s no problem. Hey. I had some business to take care of anyway. What about you? You have a hotel emergency? Well, you know how it is. One guest crisis is a hotelier’s cold eggs. I-I’m not familiar with that expression. And I hope it never becomes one. Ms. Reeves, the venice proofs are on your desk. Revenue reports are flagged in your inbox. And cartullo confirmed. Thank you, madison. Your assistant — very diligent. In the 15 minutes I was waiting for you, she must have come in and out of here three times.

[ Chuckles ] I think she was checking up on you. I think she was. She might be overcompensating. For what? Well, I’ve had a few unexpected visitors lately. Drew has gotten into the habit of just barging in unannounced whenever he wants to. He feels like he is entitled to everything and has to wait for nothing. And when it comes to me — the woman who sent him to prison, where he almost died. Thank you for saying that.

[ Chuckles ] Well, somebody had to. Okay. Which brings me to why I wanted to see you. Oh, and here I thought you just missed me. Oh, yeah, I do. Of course I do. It’S… I need a progress report on my reconciliation with sonny. Well, I mean, sonny did offer me a huge settlement, right? But all I wanted was the house. I mean, I thought I could take care of myself with my half of the hotel. Yeah, diane told me how you lost it. Yeah. My big investment with aurora. I-I didn’t know it at the time, but it was 100% insider trading. But the only reason the sec even paid attention was because nina turned me and drew in. Yeah, diane told me that, too. Did she also tell you I could have saved myself and drew by flipping on sonny? No. I mean, there wasn’t a formal offer, but diane thinks the feds would have made a deal because I had evidence against sonny. Uh, what — what kind of evidence? Proof that sonny violated the national security act. How’d you get that? Michael.

How am i the bad guy here? I never said you were. Well, you just insinuated that I may have had it coming because I was in the vicinity of sonny’s coffee warehouse. No, I’m just suggesting the possibility that sonny’s guards handled you because you violated their security perimeter. I didn’t violate anything. I was a block away. I was jumped by professionals. You most likely were. Okay. Well, if you agree with me, why did you just — oh, john. A crime has been committed, and I’m just trying to rule out possibilities. I mean, it is part of a process called police work. Oh, really? Could you spell that out for me? Yeah, no, I’ll text you.

[ Sighs ] Do you want some water? Yes. So, what were you doing skulking around sonny’s coffee warehouse? I was tailing jason morgan’s lawyer, diane miller. Is she clean, do you think? Oh, I don’t know how many lawyers are clean?

[ Laughs ] Touché. But that being said, even though most of her clients are disreputable, the woman herself, she is — she is quite a professional. I mean, she’s a paragon of ethics, or at least skilled enough to make it appear so. Then what was she doing heading to corinthos coffee at that dangerous time of the night? Um, well, jason is part owner in the coffee company. Which makes it all the more likely that some alliance is brewing between jason and sonny corinthos. Michael and josslyn were devastated about everything that happened with sonny and nina, and so michael just decided that we were all better off if sonny was in prison. And you know michael — I-I mean, he’s like you. When he sets his mind on something, he just doesn’t stop. Okay. H-how did michael get evidence against sonny? He hired a professional, an ex-soldier named dex heller. And dex was able to record evidence of sonny receiving illegal weapons from a company called pikeman. Dex brought michael the footage, and michael gave it to me. What’d you do with it? I destroyed it. I mean, by then, michael’s feeling towards his father had changed, and michael realized that sonny going to prison would tear the whole family apart. So we came up with a new plan. Michael and I were paying dex to keep an eye on sonny and report back to us if sonny found himself in any kind of trouble. Okay. So you were paying this guy to spy on sonny? Yeah, well, I mean, it was for his own good. Well, I don’t think sonny would see it that way. He did not when he found out. Gregory, I didn’t know you were here.

[ Chuckles ] I was, uh, talking to lois. She excused herself, said she’d be back in a moment. But that was a while ago. Yeah, well, she operates in a different time zone. Why were you talking to lois in the first place, anyway? Uh, happenstance. I actually stopped by to talk to — to brook lynn. Oh, in the afternoon? She’s working. I suppose when you have your afternoons free, you forget that other people don’T. Uh, anyway, it — it’s not urgent. I can call her later. Or you can give me the message and I’ll pass it along. Very well. Um… I just wanted to let brook lynn know that I won’t be bringing a plus-one after all. Oh. What happened to alexis? Uh, something came up. She had to cancel. Hmm. Well… I don’t think that that’s much of a tragedy. Alexis and weddings don’t mix. Of course, I’m prejudiced ever since she went runaway bride and left ned at the altar. If you don’t like alexis, isn’t it a good thing that she didn’t marry your son? It’s not that she didn’t marry ned. It’s how she didn’t marry ned. But she had her… reasons then. And I suppose she has her reasons now. As a matter of fact, she does. Um, I-I-I shouldn’t say anything. Oh, pfft. Then you must. You have to promise not to — I won’t say a word! Alexis has to appear in manhattan the morning after the wedding. She’s hoping to get her disbarment overturned. Oh. Well, good for her. Do you mean that?

[ Laughs ] I’m sure

some part of me must. Anyway, that’s why she can’t make the wedding, which, uh, means that I’ll be going stag. A progress report, huh? Should that be single- or double-spaced for you?

[ Chuckles ] I’m sorry. Maybe I could e-mail it to you. Madison could flag it in your inbox. All right, all right. I apologize. You are not my assistant and you do not need to report to me. But you — you did say that you would act as my advocate. And I am. So, how do things stand? Sonny miss me? Yeah, you know, of course sonny misses you. Did he say that? No, he doesn’t have to. Whenever your name comes up, his mood gets dark and he might fix himself a drink. Sonny’s drinking again? Not to excess. He’s just gone back to having a glass of scotch or two in the evening. That’s so bad for him. It makes him so volatile. Yeah. Well, I don’t recommend lecturing him on the subject. I didn’t mean to interrupt you. So, um, you said that sonny doesn’t like hearing my name? Right. I mean, he asked me not to mention you at all unless it’s absolutely necessary. And that — that proves that he misses you, right? You are still under his skin, and that’s obvious. It’s progress, nina. I’m sure of it. Oh. Well, you’re a lot more sure than I am.

For the nurses’ ball for so many years of coeco hey. How hard did the iceberg hit, hey. How hard did the iceberg hit, and is the ship still afloat? See for yourself. I really think that all my years as president and ceo of coecoe cosmetics — haven: Doesn’t that look lovely? Oh, can we get a camera on this? And, actually, the fact that I was the center of gravity for the nurses’ ball for so many years really made be able to be the driving creative force to create deception. You need to get in there. It’s trending like crazy. In a good way? Well, haven, yes. Scott, yes. Deception, meh. Lucy — you don’t want to know, sales are still really low. I’m on it. So, lucy, how would you describe this?

[ Laughs ] On our deception website — that’s how. Hey, y-you know what, you viewers out there? I-I bet that you don’t remember that I not only wrote one tell-all book, I wrote two. And you probably all purchased a travel guide to port charles, but who out there — come on, you tell me — who remembers

lust for death? I remember

lust for death. Oh, look who it is, viewers — sasha corbin, the former face of deception. Hi, there. Now not really the face of anything. And by the way, what are you wearing? Oh, these are my work clothes now. I’m a stable hand, and i love it, but it’s a lot of hard work and it doesn’t really afford an opportunity to feel pretty. Oh. Oh, this is you

not pretty? Oh, my. Look at her. Isn’t she gorgeous? Oh, thank you, haven. That’s so sweet. And thank you, lucy. I-I’ve got it from her. Uh, no. No, you don’T. I’m not — I’m not quite done. I think — I think she’s got it. No, no, I’m not. I have so many more things to say. No, no, I think she can handle it. Oh, lucy, you know, it is always such an experience with you. Well, thank you, haven, but I’m not — why don’t you tell this to me off camera? I’m not finished. There are a few more things I just wanted to impart to the audience! So, sasha, if I may ask — your makeup? I’m not really wearing any. I hate you.

[ Chuckles ] Thank you. But you know what? It does make it a lot easier for me to show you, and the audience at home, what deception’s new disruptor nourishing moisturizer can do. Oh, you take it away, honey.

[ Laughs ] The last thing sonny wants is anything to do with jason. Where are you getting that information? Sonny. He came here to my office trying to persuade me to file charges against jason. For what? For whatever part he played in the attack of the docks. Sonny conveniently forgot that jason is the reason his son is still alive. So you said that these attackers of yours — they were surprised. What happened? The two guys who jumped me ran off when carly spencer pulled up in her car. I don’t understand where all this skepticism is coming from. You trust me, don’t you? Of course I trust you. You’re my best friend. It’s just, if you can’t even mention my name to sonny, how do you even know that he is open to the idea of saving our relationship? Well, you’re still his wife, for one thing. Only because I haven’t signed a sheet of paper. Right. And is sonny pressuring you? You know how insistent he can be, how he hates loose ends. Is sonny standing over you with a pen, demanding you sign those divorce papers? No. No. Exactly. This is gonna take time, nina, and I know that it’s agonizing for you. That’s an understatement. But you have got to be patient. I can’t rush this. I have to wait for just the right moment when sonny realizes just how much he wants you back, and then I strike. Okay. So what, if any, difference do you think it would make if I, um… …sold my half of the hotel to jason morgan?

[ Scoffs ] Where’s this coming from? I had a little visit from diane miller, and she proposed the sale. I thought you liked owning the hotel. Yeah, I do. I do. I do. It’s just the… novelty has worn out. More fun running it as a prize you took from carly and not a day job.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. So do you think if I sold my half of the hotel to sonny’s best friend, that I would win some points? God, it was crazy. He was gonna kill dex. So I had to tell him everything. He was furious and betrayed. God, he just disowned michael the same way he’s disowned the two of us. And, I mean, I’m a traitor! You’re a traitor!

[ Laughs ] I mean, none of it matters? Nothing we’ve done, none of the sacrifices we made, they don’t count for anything? They count with me. Everything that you’ve been through, everything that you’ve done — sonny might not be grateful, carly, but I am.

I will pass along to brook lynn that you are no longer bringing a plus-one. Well, I hope it doesn’t mess up the seating too badly. I know how much care and planning is — gregory, stop. You are the father of the groom. You’re officiating the wedding. You will take your rightful place at the family table next to me. Well, thank you, tracy. I’d like that very much. Hey, really? What is sasha doing here? I mean, she’s not even with the company anymore. She’s not even spokesmodeling anymore. And why, pray tell, is she dressed like an escapee from mayberry? Um, thank you, lucy, for stepping in until reinforcements could get here. No, don’t do that. Don’t do that to me. Don’t handle me. Me? I’m not handling you. You were put in an impossible situation, and you handled it… the way only lucy coe would. Oh, gee. Thanks a lot. Since you put it that way —

[ Cellphone chiming ]

[ Gasps ] Oh, my gosh. I-I am blowing up. This phone is blowing up. I’m — I’m blowing up.

[ Laughs ] You are a superhero. Yeah, I know. I don’t know what we would have done if you hadn’t gotten sasha here. Well, I did, so you’ll never have to find that out, huh? You know, it’s a really nice set-up you’ve got here. I mean, I’m used to concert lighting, which is fabulous, of course. But this is elegant in its own way. Just like you. Oh! And I’m afraid that’s all we have time for today. Sasha, thank you. And it is great having you back. Thank you, haven. It was great being here. And we’re out. Oh, my god, sasha. You saved the show. Great. And I just want to say thank you. Yeah. Well, you know, my friends needed me. Yeah. Well, they are very lucky to have you. And if I may say so, for whatever it’s worth, I wish I had been kinder. Is that an apology? Well, you know, my attorneys have advised me not to apologize just in case you sue us. But, um, yes. I apologize. And I do hope you’ll come back. Socials look great. People have never loved sasha more. Ooh! Well, deception has had a rollercoaster of a day — all-time low to almost all-time high. We didn’t sell out, but I think we will by the time we leave the building. Not a bad day. Not bad at all. Aw! What?! I-I am trending. I am actually trending!

[ Gasps ] Oh! My public has never loved me more. I’ll adm it to you,not anyone else, that running a hotel is a lot more work than I wanted, and it’s not really work that I enjoy. So I’m pretty certain that jason is going to buy the hotel and turn around and give it to carly. And at the very least, that will annoy drew, and at the very best, humiliate him. Pay back for firing you. Among other things. And on top of all that, if I can sell the hotel to sonny’s best friend, it might earn me half a point with him. It’s worth doing. Sonny and jason were closer than brothers. So, from what I’ve seen, sonny would be deeply moved if you made a deal with him. Do you think so? Oh, I know so. Now, I have no idea what carly was doing there. I was too distracted by the beating to ask. She was probably going to visit jason. Well, it seems like he hasn’t had any trouble settling back into his old life. I’m sorry. I distinctly remember you asking him to do exactly that — to stay in port charles and wait for pikeman to take him out. Oh, there’s a term for that. I forget what it — oh, bait. You sound disapproving. No, I’m just — just a reminder of why jason originally came back to town. It was as half of a sniper team, and his partner had a handgun that fired armor-piercing rounds. So jason knows firsthand what pikeman is capable of. And every day he’s walking the streets, knowing that they’re coming for him. And when they do, it’s going to be a hell of a lot worse than being jumped by a couple of thugs. So I’m just saying, why didn’t you back off and give the man a little credit?

[ Sighs ] I don’t know what’s wrong with sonny. Maybe there’s nothing wrong with sonny. Maybe this is who he is. Sonny doesn’t give a damn about anybody else. Why should we give a damn about him? Don’t tell me because of the kids, okay? Because I’m not gonna set a bad example for donna by letting sonny walk all over me. Good. You’re not gonna ask me to forgive him? That’s up to you. You’re gonna forgive him?

[ Sighs ] I mean, for now, but it’s possible sonny could push me too far. And hearing how he’s treated you, he’s getting pretty close.

[ Voice breaking ] I miss him. I miss him. I miss how he used to be. And I miss how we all were together, you know, and I miss the sonny I used to love, and I just wish there was a way we could reach him. We can’t force him to trust us or accept our help. All we can do is live our lives right now and just be there if he needs us. Or we could turn our backs on him and let him drown. You’d never do that. I won’t do that either. Okay. Thank you. Sometimes I just think about how it would have been so much better if I would have never loved sonny and I’d just — just stayed in love with you. I like us the way we are. I do, too.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Oh, good morning, beautiful. Hey, take a wild guess what day it is. Besides our honeymoon? Yeah, just take a wild guess. Tax day? Technically, yes, but take a wild guess. Yeah. I don’t know. Why don’t you tell me? Uh, okay. If you insist. Today is national take a wild guess day. Oh man, they have a day for everything now.

What’s the next, sleep on the couch day? No, actually it’s kiss your new husband day. Oh, really? Yeah, so.

And would you believe it? Today also happens to be get naked in a cabin day. No, isn’t it? Yeah.

Oh no, I did it again. I’m not here. I’m invisible. I see nothing. I’m going back there. Carry on.

Penny for your thoughts? Take a wild guess.

Mwah. Good morning, darling. You’re up early. Yeah, I actually went for a run. Just needed to clear my head. And did you? Well, um, the cold air felt good, and it certainly woke me up. But I couldn’t stop thinking about how I’ve spent the last few months of my life. And now grieving for our son and almost losing Holly and then going through recovery with Holly and, and now what?

I mean, what do I do now? What do you want to be next? I don’t know. Well, the good news is you don’t have to decide this very minute. Think about it. Take your time. It’ll come to you eventually. Yeah. Well, Holly and I are going to go to the press conference and then I’m going to take her to school. I was hoping it’d be a snow day.

Oh, I’m sorry, sweetheart. The storm just missed us and school is still in session. But be thankful you’re not on Smith Island. They copped the brunt of it. And getting back into a routine will be good for you, honey. I guess. So, um, last night I wrote my apology letters to Tate and his family. But, how am I supposed to deliver these if I’m not allowed to see him?

Come on, you gotta eat up. We gotta get going soon. Not that hungry. Tate, I get it. I know you’re anxious. You got the press conference this morning at school. I’m not that anxious. Good morning! Morning. Everybody ready? I know I am. Oh, I can’t wait for that Mr. Big District Attorney to eat crow publicly. Oh, I’m so, so, so terribly sorry.

I never meant to treat that dear boy Tate like a criminal. I’m such an idiot. I don’t think EJ’s going to admit he’s an idiot. Well, a girl can dream. So, who else do you guys think is going to be at the press conference? Who will?

Okay, I think I’m up to speed. If you choose to move forward with my services, I can represent you at today’s hearing. Though I have to say, this is, uh, unusual. Case, saying as though you’ve already worked out a deal prior to engaging an attorney. That’s a very bold move. Hmm. What can I say? I’m at the mirror.

Fearlessness is in our DNA.

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

Oh, good morning. I’ll get you a cup of coffee. Uh, no thank you. I’m not going to be a third wheel on your honeymoon any longer. I’m leaving. Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you’re not going anywhere. Why not? We’re snowed in. It’s April! Until further notice, the Smith Island Ferry will remain docked, and the bridge closed due to heavy snow and debris.

I’m trapped in a cabin with two hot little newlyweds.

Please eat your breakfast. You got a big day ahead of you.

It’s gonna take more than one bite to humor me. Tate, look, we do have something important we have to talk about. God, all we ever do is talk things important. Just listen, please. Your mom and I, we know that it’s inevitable that you’re gonna see Holly at school. Just keep your distance. Right. If you see her You keep walking, okay?

Under no circumstances are you to hang out with her. Otherwise, go directly to jail. Do not pass code. Do not collect 200. Okay, Mr. Smart Alec, there’s not gonna be a get out of jail card if you let her drag you down again. I’m not trying to punish you. I’m trying to protect you. Oh, from Holly, the teenage werewolf.

Yeah, well, if the fangs fit. Okay. Mom. You understand what we’re saying, right? Yeah, I get it, okay? Well, we hope so. Because that girl, she’s trouble. I will be damned if she’s gonna screw up your life.

Honey, those letters are starting to look a little crumbled up from your backpack. Do you want me to hang on to them?

Sure, I guess so. I’m really proud of you for writing these. I know it couldn’t have been easy. It was fine.

And are you ready for your speech? Can’t wait. It’s every district attorney’s dream to have to issue a public apology for the wrongful prosecution of a minor. I’m really sorry you have to. I did what I did because I was sure you never would have taken those drugs on your own. You proved me wrong. Gee. I wonder why I did it.

Oh, maybe it’s because my life isn’t as perfect and smooth sailing as everyone thinks. I’m on my third stepfather, and FYI, your last name, it comes with a whole lot of baggage. Is that so? Yeah. Aiden Murrah helped put those drugs on the street. Stop it, okay? Do not blame EJ or me for this. You made your choices, you have to live with it.

Whatever. Alright, you know what, honey? Please, just Get all your stuff and let’s go. I’m sorry. She’s lashing out at us, but deep down she’s just mad at us all. Oh. Uh, I have to take this. Yes? Now? That’s highly irregular. Fine, I’ll be there. I have to go to a meeting, but I will not be late to the press conference.

Okay. I’ll see you there.

And in this meeting, or rather Stefan’s hearing, I will present the judge with such a weak argument that she will be appalled and have no choice but to reject. My plea agreement.

Some would call your behavior rash, Mr. DiMera. He who represents himself as a fool for a client. But see, I’m not representing myself, I’m hiring you to represent me. A little late, but okay. First things first, let’s discuss my retainer. Ah, not so fearless on that, are we? Let’s just say that my finances are, uh, in flux at the moment.

Well, as you pointed out, you’re a Demira. Funds are at your fingertips. Except that my access to those funds is temporarily on hold. Mm hmm. You know, suddenly I’m not feeling so confident about this arrangement. Wait, wait, wait. Please. We will pay you handsomely. That is a promise. But also, from what I hear, you can benefit from representing me because your practice has slowed down.

Quite a bit. Uh, you are gravely mistaken. My practice is flourishing.

But with no payment up front, it’s going to cost you double on the back end. Agreed.

Not so fast. I have questions. Ask away. Your brother made you a very sweet deal. Why do you need me? Because the deal is only sweet if the judge signs off on it. And you’re worried EJ might try and wiggle out of it? I know my brother. There’s no way he’s not going to try and double cross me.

Well, what are we going to do? What can we do? We’re just going to have to rat it out. What? At least we still have power. No television, but we do have Wi Fi, because they rewired the whole island a couple of years ago. And there’s plenty of food, so you might as well have some of the breakfast that we made.

Oh, thank you. I, I feel terrible. I feel like I’ve just invaded your honeymoon like Genghis Khan. Oh, I know. After we all have breakfast, you can go out in the snow and frolic. Make memories. We, we didn’t pack anything for a snowstorm. Don’t worry about that. I got you covered.


Mom, I get it. Okay, you’ve, you’ve told me a million times I won’t hang out with Holly. But, uh, Good. Just keep your distance and focus on making good choices. Yeah. Okay. But, can I talk to you about, uh, something else? Oh, this isn’t about a car, is it? No. Not yet. Uh, but, but it is about, uh, making good choices.

Like you said, being responsible. Um, I want to start working here at the pub again. And, and before you say anything, it’s good for someone my age to be working, being productive. And, and, and I still have to pay you back for the damages to my old school. Yeah, I don’t think that’s a good idea. Look, just let me finish, okay?

You’re, you’re starting back up at school again. You’re still catching up. You really need to just stay focused on that. Okay, Mom. But, no. Tate, I’m with your mom on this one. Okay, I think you should focus on your school work. Summer’s right around the corner anyway. But I already talked to Uncle Roman and he needs me.

I’ll be helping family. That’s important too, right? It’s, it’s good for someone. I know. If it gets to be too much, I can just quit. Mm hmm. And I’ll tell you what, we’ll table this discussion for now. Because today we need to focus on

So glad you could fit me into your schedule. Busy day? Let’s get this over with. What the hell do you want, Stefan? Ah, want. Need. So many things. Really. Let’s start with today’s hearing, though. Yes, I was surprised to get a call that it had been moved up to today. My attorney arranged that for me. Your attorney?

Why do you need an attorney? Because my life is on the line, EJ. Now, you may be my brother, but you are also the district attorney who is prosecuting me. And let’s be honest, I don’t trust you. Not one bit. Feelings mutual. See? So can you blame me? EJ, I need somebody on my side who doesn’t stand to benefit from sending me to prison.

Considering my very generous offer, you’re wasting time and money on legal representation. Let me worry about that. But yes, your offer is very generous. It’s a win win for both of us. You get to brag to the citizens of Salem how you saved them from a very costly trial by finagling my plea deal, and I get the recommended sentence of time served.

Yes, I’m familiar with the terms, since you blackmailed me into agreeing to them. Yes, I blackmailed you using a recording that I made of you incriminating yourself. Not to mention winning a very high stakes chess game. Let’s not forget that. But EJ, yes, we are family at the end of the day. And as my brother, I would hope that you will return my half of the DiMera funds upon my return home.

Home? You think you’re coming home? Oh, I know I am. Because if I don’t, you’ll pay. Huh?

Dammit, what are those two doing here? Um, honey, why don’t we go to Sweet Bits instead? Mom, it’s a small town. This was bound to happen. We can’t just run off every time it does. Well, we can run off now because I told Tate’s parents that I supported their decision to keep you two apart. And I am not going back on my word, okay?

Let’s go. Wait, my letters. I could hand them out to them since they’re all here now. Are you sure that’s a good idea? Um, well, you’re the one who said I need to make amends. So what better way to do it than in person? Won’t it mean more that way?

I suppose you’re right. Here.

Miss Donovan, Mr. Black. Tate, I wrote each one of you a letter. I was hoping it’s okay if I give it to you now.

See? We always keep extra clothes up here, just in case. So glad you do. Yeah, yeah, they’re really nice. They fit really well. Nice and roomy. Well, I’m gonna call Doug, and you kids go out and play!

Are we five? Are we five year olds? Hey, let’s just make the best of it, okay? Okay, fine. What else can we do? Hey, look, I do want to do over on this honeymoon, and I want it to be somewhere nice and hot and tropical where I can wear a bikini. And I can take it off you without Julie walking in. Let’s go. Get out!

Okay. Your Honor, as you’re aware, our city has been plagued with a drug epidemic that has destroyed lives, torn families apart. It’s been an uphill battle. But, with the information provided by Mr. DeMere in regards to his business arrangement with Clyde Weston, the police have been able to cut off much of the pipeline of drugs into our fair city.

Our, uh, office has cleared several cases, and by doing so, Salem is now a safer place to live. Based on all this, the state agrees that time served is a fair sentence and in the best interest of all parties.

You’re joking, right? Of something of this importance, I would not. Stefan DiMera is your brother. This Plea is the epitome of nepotism. Considering the nature of the offense and taking into account the best interests of this community, I must say, I am appalled.

How was it? It was cold, but we actually had a lot of fun. We made snow angels. Yeah? Yeah, and then I got stuck in mine, and I couldn’t get back up again. And I tried to bend down and help her, and then I fell. We both got stuck. Yeah, and then we were just both on the ground, upside down, like some upside down turtles.

Oh, what an image, what an image. Well, listen, once you warm up, what do you say we have a nice game of charades? Charades, huh? Oh, I haven’t played charades since. I actually don’t think I’ve ever played charades. Oh, darling, you’re gonna love it. You’ll just love it. I’ll make us hot cocoa. And as I remember, Grandpa Tom always kept some, some rum to spike the cocoa with.

There might be cognac, too. Yummy.

Dear Tate, I’m so sorry for everything I put you through. I promise I’ll do better. I want to be the kind of person who deserves someone like you. But, next time, I’m keeping your sweatshirt. Just so I have something of yours to keep close to me.

My hero.

Well, thank you, Holly. You obviously understand how your actions are important to us. I do. And we do appreciate the letters, don’t we? Yes. Thank you. I feel like we’re finally coming to an end of this situation. For that, I’m very grateful. We are too.

Just so you know, Holly, These letters that you’ve written here do not change how we feel about you hanging out with our son. We understand and we will continue to abide by your wishes, right honey?

Your Honor, all the required documentation is included here in this file. It’s clear the people have spoken not to my satisfaction. This plea does not support the interest of the public, nor does it sufficiently address the nature of the offense. Your Honor, may I approach?

May I refer you to the affidavit prepared and sworn to by the Attorney General’s office? It includes a breakdown of all the cases resulting from the information that Mr. DeMera here provided on Clyde Weston’s criminal enterprise. Thanks to my client, you’ll note the many incidents resulted in the seizing of narcotics.

Thank you. That’s all well and good. But Mr. DiMera shouldn’t get a free pass just because this Mr. DiMera doesn’t want to prosecute his brother. Your Honor, as citizens of Salem, we are all much safer knowing that my client curbed the enterprise of a well known drug kingpin. He did so under extreme duress.

Mr. DeMera’s wife was assaulted and under constant threat from Mr. Weston’s associates while in custody of our state’s prison system, which obviously failed to protect her. Mrs. DiMera suffered severe injuries, including a broken leg, because her husband refused to take orders from Clyde Weston. These additional crimes will add years to Mr.

Weston’s prison sentence upon his recapture. Whenever that may be. I’m confident that the authorities will apprehend Mr. Weston. In the meantime, time served is a reasonable sentence, considering all that Stephen DeMere has done to make amends.

I’ve heard from both sides. And while you may have expected this court to accept this plea agreement, here and now, and enter it into the record, in the interest of justice, I’m going to take this under advisement. My clerk will notify you when I’ve reached a decision. Mr. DiMera. The guard outside will escort you back to your cell.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to get to court. Your Honor. What’s this

mean? It means we wait. I’ll check in on you a little later, okay? Thank you for advocating for me today. I appreciate it. Thank you. Okay.

What was that? What? What? You were going to let her throw out our agreement. That was not the deal. You deliberately presented a weak case. You wanted her to be involved. I did exactly what we agreed upon. No more, no less. We are both beholden to the justice system. I don’t make the rules. Whatever the judge determines is based on her own discretion.

Okay? Oh, so that’s it, huh? You think I’m gonna let some funky judge ruin my plans? It is out of my hands now. Is it? Hmm? Maybe, brother, I didn’t destroy the only copy of that tape. Oh, I wouldn’t put it past you, so, so take this in. I am more than happy to reveal who shot and nearly killed Detective Michaels.

You would not. Oh, try me. So why don’t you get your ass and go back to your cell and keep your mouth shut like a good little boy. My blackmail trumps your blackmail any day of the week. I am sides. I still have a binding agreement. Turning over all your wealthy possessions to me. See you in a few years. O broski

flat. It’s, it’s a box. It’s a flat, flat. You’re un, you’re op, you’re unscrewing it. You’re opening it. You’re ouch. It was hot. Hot. It did it. It’s a, is it a stove? It’s a stove. Cat on a hot tin roof! Yes! Oh! You’re really good at this. Oh, you’re too kind. You guys need a break. Gee, the fire’s getting pretty low, isn’t it?

Ah, fear not. I will go out and get us some more firewood. Oh, thank you, Johnny. Thank you very much. You got it. Thank you. Watch out for the bears!

He’s really a lovely guy, isn’t he? Oh, yeah. I will definitely have to agree to that. Yeah. So, I know he’s been standing by wonderfully for you during your mother’s illness. Yeah, he’s been amazing. And Paulina. How is she doing, really? Tell me. She’s getting better. Um, she’s going through radiation right now, which requires complete isolation, so you can imagine how much she’s loving that.

Yes, I can. But if it’s radiation, that means she’s in the homestretch. Yeah, that’s what we’re hoping. Julie, this, this is a really special place you have here. Yes, it is, and it’s been wonderful for the family, always such beautiful memories. And on bad weather days like this, my grandparents always had plenty of board games and puzzles for us.

Sort of like the, the time capsule. The what? Oh. Well, after the fire at our house, we found a time capsule that my grandparents had left for everyone. And we think it must have been something to challenge the new generations, you know, like a puzzle. It is getting colder, isn’t it? Yeah, yeah. Um, you know what?

I’ll go help Johnny. Oh, honey, you don’t have to do that. Oh, I know. He’ll be right back. I know, I know. But still, I think that two hands will bring back more firewood for us all. Very practical. Thank you. darling. Uh huh. Careful out there.

You feel any better handing out those letters? Yeah, I was kind of nervous, but I’m just glad it’s over now. Well, I think it’ll help you heal. And make better decisions by understanding that our choices can have severe consequences. I know. Mom, I’m so sorry for everything. I never want to hurt you like that ever again.

Thank you, honey. I love you so much. I love you too. What the hell? What? What is it? It’s nothing. It’s nothing. Don’t worry about it. Nothing? You wouldn’t react like that if it was nothing. Let me see that. Let me see. Today’s the day the pill pushing dirtbag comes back to school, bets on when he slips H. J.

some more dance fever and she O. D. ‘s again. Dance fever? It’s slang for opioids. Who wrote this? No, some jerk. It doesn’t matter. Well, you know what? After I drop you off, I’m gonna go and have a little conversation with the principal.

Um, please, just don’t make this a thing, just not today, okay? All of this, all of this is gonna stop once EJ makes the public apology. Alright? It’ll be all over the news. Yeah, well, teenagers don’t watch the news, do they? Well, it’ll die down. My mom and I just saw the post. They’re being really unfair. Yes, they are.

Well, I just want to let you know once I get to school, I’m telling everybody that what happened was completely my fault. It had nothing to do with Tate. Corey, thank you. Um, sorry. We’re, we’re gonna get going. The press conference is gonna start. Okay. Uh, we will see you guys there.

As District Attorney of Salem, it is my job to follow the evidence and prosecute those who have wronged our community. It already started? What are we, late? Sometimes the system doesn’t work that way, and for that I offer my apologies. I, I, I guess E. T. ‘s early. I will continue to try

to make Salem a safe a snowstorm in the middle of April. Where are the kids?

Chanel? Johnny? You out there? They’ve been

out there too long.

What do you mean, what was that? The press conference, per your demands. You started before the press even got here. That is not what we demanded. The press is right there. Are you kidding? That’s your PR guy, EJ. This is not an acceptable apology. It is what it is. Take it or leave it. Excuse me? Dad, just let it go.

I don’t care. Well, I care. No, it’s over. It’s done. Hey, let’s just go. I don’t want to be late on my first day back to school. Mom, come on. Tate, okay. We’ll leave. I want a written copy of that apology sent to my office by the end of the day, okay? Go tell Bob. He’ll give you what you want. Uh, Tate, I am, I am so sorry.

Brady, Teresa, I had no idea EJ was gonna do this. And I know it’s not what you wanted, but I do know that EJ is very sorry for everything that Tate went through. And he’s just not very good at apologizing. Oh, fool. Poor EJ. Okay, I know it’s not an excuse. But our whole family, we are really sorry. Thank you.

Let’s go.

That does it. They’ve been out in the cold too damn long. I’ll just go out myself and Walk around the cabin and Hey! Oh! There you are! Johnny! What happened? I, uh, it just, uh, the wood out back was wet. Oh. I think the tarp flew off in the storm. And so I had to go down by the shoreline to find some dry wood.

Good. Looks great. Yeah, yeah. Where’s Chanel? What? Isn’t she here with you? No, Johnny. She went looking for you. Well, I haven’t seen her. Oh my god. Where is she?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Upbeat music ]

Steffy: This is so crazy! This is insane! Wait, deacon actually thinks that sheila’s alive?

Finn: Yeah, because of what happened at the crematorium. He thinks the body that went into the crematorium had ten toes and sheila only had nine.

Steffy: I don’t care how many toes she has or didn’t have. That was sheila. If anyone knows that, it should be me.

Deacon: “Stay away from me, sugar.” Stay away from me, sugar?

Carter: Be straight with me, zende. Did something happen between you and luna the night of eric’s wedding?

Zende: Yeah.

Carter: And it’s something you’re both keeping from rj?

Zende: We didn’t want to hurt him.

Carter: And this will? What exactly did you two do, zende?

Zende: Luna and i slept together.

Rj: So, your mom’s mints are actually drugs?

Luna: I had no idea, though.

Rj: And you accidentally took them the night of my granddad and donna’s wedding?

Luna: Yeah. Somehow, my regular breath mints got mixed up with my mom’s special mints and… oh, my god, I’m so sorry, rj. If I could do it all over again–

Rj: Do– do what? Do what over again? Luna, tell me what happened to you that night. Please.

Carter: So you and luna, you… you slept together?

Zende: Well, I mean, I thought we did–

Carter: You thought? What does that mean, you thought?

Zende: Something happened to luna that night. Something that explains why she was in my bed when I got home.

Carter: Hold on, hold on. She was in your bed, so she came to your place and she what, she came on to you?

Zende: No, no, no. It wasn’t like that. It wasn’t her fault at all. She didn’t mean for this to happen. Neither of us did.

Carter: You didn’t?

Zende: No.

Carter: You just admitted you have feelings for her.

Zende: Having feelings is one thing, but I never would’ve acted on them knowing how much luna loves rj.

Carter: Dude, I’m so confused right now. If she didn’t want this, and you didn’t want this, then how did you two sleep together?

Rj: Luna, whatever happened to you, it’s obviously still really upsetting you.

Luna: You have no idea the regrets I have. I mean, if– if I had just stayed with you and never left eric’s, if I had, none of this would be happening. Please know that I– I’d give anything to not have hurt you.

Rj: Luna, I love you. You haven’t hurt me.

Luna: I love you too. So much. And the thought of betraying you is… but that’s exactly what I did. I betrayed you that night.

Steffy: I– I was standing there when the medics pronounced sheila dead. I– I heard them say the time of death. Like, it’s not something that I imagined. It’s how it happened.

Finn: No, I know that. And you know that. But deacon, he–

Steffy: Deacon is what? Going around telling people that sheila’s alive because of her toes? What?

Finn: He thinks he saw ten toes. That just before sheila’s feet went into the flames that–

Steffy: Oh, my gosh, it’s impossible. It’s impossible. Either deacon is lying or it’s– it’s wishful thinking on his part because it is not real. Sheila was in our home, finn. It was definitely sheila.

Deacon: Maybe finn’s right. I am losing it.

[ Mechanical whirring ]

[ Fire roaring ]

Deacon: Piggies in a blanket underneath the sheet. Sheila had nine toes, but I saw ten on those feet. Yeah, you’re definitely losing it. You wanna know how I get this glow?

Carter: So, you and luna, you sleep together, but she thought she was with rj?

Zende: Because of her mother’s mints, yeah.

Carter: Her mints?

Zende: It’s a long story, but poppy, luna’s mom, she takes these special mints to help her chill out. Only somehow, her mints got mixed up with luna’s regular breath mints, so every time luna thought that she was taking a regular mint, she was–

Carter: She was drugging herself, and that’s why she thought she made love to rj.

Zende: I know how crazy it sounds that it could’ve even happened the way that it did.

Carter: Zende, look at me. You sure it happened that way?

Zende: Wait a minute, you think I’m lying to you?

Carter: No. I don’t think you’re lying. I know who you are, the kind of man you are.

Zende: Thank you. Still though, I… wish that I had realized that she wasn’t herself. That something was off with her. But I didn’T. I didn’t, man. And I’m still mad at myself for it. I’m mad because of what’s happened to her, what she’s been through, but also because of what rj’s gonna go through when he finds out what happened.

Rj: What do you mean you betrayed me?

Luna: I didn’t mean to. Okay, I swear. It’s just– it’s like what I said, okay? I accidentally took my mom’s mints, and– and they did something to me, okay? I wasn’t myself, rj. I wasn’T.

Rj: Okay, okay. Deep breath, deep breath, deep breath, okay? I want you to start at the beginning and tell me exactly what happened because right now you’re not making any sense to me, okay?

Luna: Okay. Um, you know how I left the party early and I kissed you goodnight?

Rj: Yes.

Luna: Well, I was so tired and so thirsty. And, um, I went outside to wait for my ride share and i happened to see some water bottles in one of the guest houses. So, um, I went up inside to drink it, and I don’t know, I must’ve laid down in the bed ’cause I was so exhausted. Or at least that’s what I think happened. I mean, I’m not entirely sure.

Rj: That’s it? That’s all you remember?

Luna: No. Um, the last thing I remember is you coming into the room and me saying that I was waiting for you.

Deacon: Why, sheila, why did you go to steffy’s that night? And who the hell is sugar?

Steffy: I can’t believe deacon is doing this.

Finn: Well, look, grief can do strange things.

Steffy: Well, what it can’t do is change the facts. Sheila broke into our home, she lunged at me, and if I didn’t grab that knife, like, I don’t know what would’ve happened.

Finn: Hey, hey, hey, it’s okay. Look, honey, you don’t have to go there, all right? Everyone knows that you acted in self-defense, including the police. Your name has been cleared. This whole nightmare can be over.

Steffy: But it’s not over, finn. That nightmare is seared into my brain. God, deacon needs to just get a grip. He can’t be telling people that sheila is alive. This is crazy. Oh, god.

Finn: What are you gonna do?

Steffy: I’m gonna confront deacon. No, this needs to stop. Sheila’s dead. She’s not coming back. And once deacon gets that through his thick skull, he’ll be better off. We’ll all be better off. Dry skin is sensitive skin, too.

Zende: You can’t say anything about this, carter. To anyone.

Carter: I won’t, but rj deserves to know the truth.

Zende: I agree.

Carter: Does luna? Because she’s the one who should tell him.

Zende: The secret has been killing her. And she’s only kept quiet to protect my relationship with rj.

Carter: Still, you both have to know, the longer you keep this from rj, the harder it’s gonna be for him when he finds out. Man, the guy’s head over heels in love with her.

Zende: Yeah. That’s why she’s telling him the whole story right now. I mean, this has been tearing her apart. I just hope that rj can understand.

Rj: Luna, I wasn’t with you when you left the party that night.

Luna: I know. And I know that now, but I– I didn’t know it then. Rj, I swear, I thought I was with you.

Rj: Okay, so this is what you’re telling me. You accidentally took your mother’s drugs, and then you stumbled into one of the guest houses on my granddad’s property?

Luna: Yeah.

Rj: Which guest house was it? I wasn’t there, but someone was, right? Who was it? Luna, answer me. I need to know.

Luna: It was zende. I spent the night with zende.

Deacon: Finn filled you in on what I said.

Steffy: We’re here to set you straight.

Deacon: Oh, really, okay. Well, let me tell you what’s going–

Steffy: No, you need to hear this. I thought this memorial service for sheila was gonna give you some kind of closure. Why won’t you just let sheila be dead?

Deacon: It’s not that I won’t let her be dead. I accepted the fact that she’s gone, but then I saw that–

Steffy: I don’t want to hear it, deacon. I don’t want to hear it. You’re wrong. Dead wrong. I killed sheila. Hellmann’s real mayonnaise.

Carter: I hate that this happened.

Zende: I hate it, too. Especially for luna. She is a good, sweet, beautiful person. She never would’ve cheated on rj, if not for her mother’s mints.

Carter: Look, don’t take this the wrong way. I feel for luna, I do, but I can only imagine the guilt her mother’s going through, knowing what she did to her daughter’s life.

Zende: Yeah, well, she should feel guilty. Luna did not deserve for this to happen to her. And no, it was not intentional on poppy’s part. She loves luna very much, but to be so irresponsible and reckless just to leave your stash hanging out like that–

Carter: Irresponsible and reckless? What about your guilt, zende? Are you taking responsibility? Yeah, I know you didn’t realize what was going on–

Zende: I didn’t! I didn’t! Had I even had a hint that luna had been drugged that night, would’ve never gone down the way it did. I would’ve taken her home myself. Or I would have called rj and had him drive her home and make sure that she was okay. But, I just– it never occurred to me that luna might’ve been on something. I mean, why would it? It was my granddad’s wedding! I didn’t even know that her mom was into that stuff. I mean, neither did luna. We were both equally shocked to find out.

Carter: What about taking accountability? Shocked or not, bottom line is, rj is with luna. He is your cousin. That should’ve been enough for you to pump the brakes. I’m sorry, man. You don’t need to lecture from me. It’s just– I hate this for all three of you.

Zende: I, um, I’m just worried that luna’s whole world is about to blow sky high.

Carter: You really do care about her, huh?

Luna: Listen, I’m not– I’m not trying to make excuses, okay? It– it never, ever, ever should’ve happened. But I– I was drugged, okay? I– I thought that I was with you, that I had slept with you. It wasn’t until the next morning that I realized it was zende.

Rj: Stop.

Luna: Rj, please.

Rj: My cousin. You two?

Luna: I’m sorry, okay? I’m so, so, so sorry. Rj, please.

Deacon: Look what you think happened was not–

Steffy: Not think, deacon, I know. I killed sheila. I saw her face.

Deacon: So did I. I saw her at the morgue, and then I saw her again at the crematorium.

Steffy: Okay, you saw her at the morgue because she’s dead. You saw her at the crematorium because she is dead.

Steffy: Steffy, listen to me, please. I pulled back the sheet at the crematorium, and it was definitely sheila. But right before the crematorium doors closed, I saw ten toes. I definitely saw ten toes.

Finn: Deacon, you were emotional. And it’s understandable you might think you saw something that you didn’T. I mean, grief can manifest in all kinds of ways.

Deacon: What– what do you want me to do? Just drop this?

Steffy: Yes, that’s exactly what I want you to do. Have you forgotten all the terrible things sheila has done to us? Sheila got exactly what she deserved. Now you need to stop this. You need to stop spreading these lies, okay? I don’t want to think about sheila anymore. I don’t want to talk about her anymore. She is out of our lives forever. Do you hear me? Forever.

Nick: Sis, you pulled the whole thing off.

Victoria: Thank you. I couldn’t have done it without you.

Nick: Well, that is true.

[ Victoria laughing ]

Victoria: Oh, would you please remind the staff that this is a dry party, and we’re just going to be serving sparkling cider and mocktails. Thank you.

Nick: So, you know the drill. Jordan is an extremely smart woman. She’s been known to use disguises. You’ve got to be on your toes at all times. There is a chance she tries to break in here and tries to do more damage than she’s already done.

Mortonson: If she shows, we’ll get her.

Nick: She also likes to use other people to do her dirty work. If anybody shows up who is not on that guest list, come to me immediately, okay?

Mortonson: Yes, sir.

Victoria: So, are all of the precautions in place?

Nick: Security team’s been briefed. The staff’s been vetted. I think we’re good to go.

Victoria: Good. It’s a very big night for our parents and our family and our friends, so it’s crucial that nothing interferes with their anniversary celebration. They’ve already survived so much. They deserve all of the happiness.

Chance: Looks like victor’s gone full lockdown.

Summer: My grandmother is the most precious thing in his life. He’d do anything he can to protect her.

Chance: I understand that.

[ Summer gasping ]

Summer: Harrison! Oh, my goodness. You look so handsome. Do you have a present for your great-grandparents in there? Let’s go over here. You can show me.

Kyle: Oh, man. Summer looks happy. I think you’re a big part of that.

Chance: I’m pretty happy myself.

Kyle: No breakup is easy, but I’m pleased to see summer’s doing so well.

Chance: Well, I think you are a big part of that, man. Like tonight, bringing your son to a newman party just to give his grandparents a gift. It’s very cool of you. Getting past all the divorce trauma and trying to be good co-parents.

Kyle: A night with my former in-laws makes my kids smile that I’m in. Harrison will always come first for me and summer.

Cole: Hey, kyle. How are you doing?

Kyle: Good. You?

Cole: Doing well. It’s definitely been a while since I’ve been to a newman party.

Kyle: Yeah, it can be a lot. You ready for this?

Claire: Very. Chance, it’s nice to see you again.

Chance: You as well.

Harrison: Claire!

Claire: Hey!

Cole: Oh, someone definitely has a buddy.

Jack: Wow. You have never looked more beautiful.

Diane: Oh, you’re just saying that.

Jack: No, you’re absolutely gorgeous. My tie on straight?

Diane: It’s perfect.

Traci: Oh, are you off?

Jack: Yeah, I guess we should be going.

Traci: Well, you don’t sound very enthusiastic.

Jack: Oh. I just don’t love leaving ashley right now. It doesn’t seem right after everything she’s been through.

Diane: Well, you know, if you want to stay home and be here for her, we can absolutely skip the party.

[ Traci laughing ]

Traci: Oh, no. You’re not getting off that easily. This is nikki’s big night. You need to be there for her.

Nikki: A sip at a time. A day at a time. Just until jordan is gone.

Victor: Honey? There you are. Oh my god. Look at you. More gorgeous every time I see you.

Nikki: Oh, victor.

Victor: You ready for the big night?

Nikki: Oh, yes.

Victor: Anything you’re worried about?

Nikki: No one can spoil this night for us.

Victor: That’s right.

Nikki: We have earned this celebration. 40 wonderful, complicated, exciting years since we were first married.

Did you know…

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Jack: Ashley was very angry last night, capable of anything. What if the angry ashley is the one who wakes up next?

Traci: Jack, you have nothing to worry about. Ashley took a sleeping pill. I fully expect she’s gonna sleep through the night.

Diane: If only there was some way to make sure ashley stays herself. No more back and forth.

Traci: Whatever happens, I will just deal with it. What good is the two of you staying around here? No good at all.

Jack: So you’re pretty much pushing us out the door.

Traci: I’m pushing you out the door. Go. Have fun for a few hours.

Jack: On one condition. Let me know if there are any changes. Keep me updated.

Traci: I will.

Diane: Well, it looks like we’re going to a party.

Jack: Yep.

Billy: Hi. Wow. Don’t you look fancy.

Diane: Billy, perfect timing.

Jack: You can keep traci company.

Billy: Very happy to do that. And very, very happy to not be attending a party that toasts victor newman.

Nikki: Shall we?

Victor: Not so fast. Not so fast.

[ Nikki sighs ]

Nikki: You spoil me so. You shouldn’t have.

Victor: I hope you feel differently once you’ve seen it.

[ Nikki gasping ]

Nikki: Ruby. For our ruby anniversary. Oh, it’s stunning.

Victor: You are stunning.

Nikki: Put it on me.

[ Nikki sighing ] Thank you, my love. Thank you.

Victor: Do you like it?

Nikki: Not just for this, but for everything that you do. These last months, I know I’ve let you down.

Victor: No, no, no. Don’t talk about that.

Nikki: No, let me finish.

Victor: Well?

Nikki: You have stood by me. You have supported me. You have held me when I lost hope. You’re always telling me how strong I am. But your belief in me is what fuels that strength. You always put me first. You fight for our family and our future. And I love you for that. And I promise, the years we have ahead will be even better than we can imagine.

Victor: And I have as much faith in our future as you do. And it starts tonight. So, let us now celebrate with our friends and family. Let us celebrate our eternal love.

Victoria: Really? Okay.

Adam: Evening.

Nick: Good evening.

Sally: It’s beautiful.

Victoria: Oh, thank you. Ah, excuse me, I have to check on something.

Sally: Nice to see you.

Adam: Well, maybe I’ll get a warmer greeting from my other sister.

Devon: Oh, hey!

Adam: Glamorous, as always, abby.

Abby: Hi, adam.

Adam: Devon.

Devon: Hey. Nice night for a party, yeah?

Abby: It is. Umm, let’s go talk to victoria. I’ll catch up with you later.

Nick: Okay.

Adam: Oh, oh.

Nick: I’m glad you’re both here.

Sally: You might be the only one.

Nick: Don’t worry about it. It’s a tough room at times. How’s connor?

Adam: I wish I could tell you. I haven’t had any contact with him directly, just general reassurances from his team.

Nick: Is that part of the protocol?

Adam: Mm-hmm. Chelsea and I, we were told to keep our distance and give him some space for the first few weeks.

Nick: First few weeks?

Adam: Mm-hmm. Zero contact.

Nick: Oh, man. I bet you want to rip that place apart to get to your boy. Is it like that for all the parents?

Adam: No, it’s not. But when they tell you that you’re one of the triggers for your son’s ocd and you’re the cause of his pain and suffering and his whole world being upside down, they tell you to stay away for your kid’s wellbeing.

Kyle: You look lovely.

Claire: Thank you. And you, summer, have such a great sense of style.

Summer: Thank you.

Claire: So chic and put together I– I’d love some pointers sometime.

Harrison: Claire, look.

Claire: A bunny? Wow, that’s awesome.

Harrison: It’s my good luck charm.

Claire: A lucky-bun? Lucky you!

Kyle: He doesn’t go anywhere without it.

Claire: I used to have a good luck charm when I was little, too.

Kyle: You still have it?

Claire: Got lost somewhere along the way.

Harrison: I’m never going to lose him.

Summer: It’s time for us to go downstairs, don’t you think? Chance: Sounds good.

Jordan: How precious. Why do dermatologists worldwide recommend

Nick: Okay, I’m sorry, that sounds agonizing. Why did the doctors think you were a trigger?

Adam: Well, they claim that it came from connor. He told them that his thoughts are worse when he’s around his parents. So basically, chelsea and I, we have screwed up, and I suck as a dad.

Nick: Adam, that is not true.

Adam: Well, the doctors with their certificates and diplomas and awards seem to think so, and they think I should stay away from my own son.

Nick: But?

Adam: But none of it feels right. You know, not being around him. Not being the one that can make things better for him. So we should really just change the subject, or I’m going to be punching the walls when the guests of honor arrive. So, martinis, sound good?

Sally: Yes.

Nick: Yeah, sorry, it’s a dry party.

Adam: Oh, man. This day just keeps getting better.

Michael: Have I mentioned how dazzling you look?

Lauren: Well, not in the last five minutes.

Jack: Okay, enough, enough.

Diane: Oh, hi!

Jack: Hello there.

Michael: Oh, my gosh. You and diane had a newman anniversary. I think– I take it victor didn’t get a look at that guest list.

Lauren: Oh, well, maybe he was just feeling warm and fuzzy because of the momentous occasion.

Michael: Can I interest you in a glass of sparkling cider?

Diane: I’d love it.

Michael: Come here, honey.

Jack: Hey, there.

Lauren: Hi. So, jack abbott at a victor newman party. You know what? Your loyalty to nikki is next level.

Jack: She begged me to come. I had to say yes.

Lauren: Oh, well, she’s so lucky to have you in her corner.

Jack: Oh, she wouldn’t be doing as well as she is doing if you hadn’t stepped up to help her out at newman media. It’s just not easy, what she’s going through, on any level, but especially with jordan out there. But I am hoping that she has turned a corner.

Lauren: Oh, I’m so happy to hear that. I think she and victor have more to celebrate than just their anniversary tonight.

Victor: Mortonson. Everything all right?

Mortonson: It’s all good, sir. My men are posted at every possible entrance.

Victor: Good. You stay alert. I’m relying on you and your team, all right?

Mortonson: Yes, sir.

Victor: Thank you. Are you ready for the big entrance?

Nikki: Am I ready?

Victor: Yes. This entrance has been 40 years in the making.

Victor: Baby, you’re so gorgeous. Let’s go.

Victoria: Hello, everyone.

Claire: Hey.

Victoria: Hi, harrison. I see that you’re still making friends with claire. She’s my daughter. Did you remember that? Isn’t that cool?

Cole: Oh, and I’m claire’s dad, and so we are a family, just like you and your parents.

Claire: You know what, harrison? I think your mom wants to see you and lucky-bun. And I am going to go try one of those fancy drinks.

Cole: Sure.

Victoria: Did you see that? The way that summer was looking at claire?

Cole: Yeah. It’s hard not to notice.

Victoria: It’s not fair. You’d think that she would at least give her a chance. Maybe I should say something to her.

Cole: Or maybe you should stop worrying and overthinking. Claire has broken from jordan. She’s completely won over victor and nikki. And if she can do that, she can handle anything.

Victoria: You’re absolutely right.

[ Applause ]

Cole: Hey!

Nick: It’s time we honor the couple of the hour. Now, we’re talking 40 years, so this could take a while to dig in. Mom, dad, you’ve had it all. The ups, the downs, the highs, the lows. You have been there for each other. You’ve been there for us, your kids, your grandchildren. You’ve shown us what real love is and the power that it has and what it can survive and that it always wins. At least if victor newman has anything to say about it.

Victoria: Mom and dad, you may not have always lived in the same house, but you’ve always been a part of each other’s life, for better or for worse. And in the end, I think it’s all been for the better. You’ve taught us how to believe in ourselves, the family, and the love that holds us all together. Dad, you taught me how to throw a jab and a right cross, even when I didn’t know that’s what I needed. And mom, you showed me ever since I was a little girl that a mother would do anything to keep her child safe, to love that child and to support them so that they can flourish and be happy. I’m so proud to be your daughter and to witness this once-in-a-lifetime love that you have and be a part of this family that you created.

Nick: Thank you.

Adam: Well, victoria and nicholas aren’t the only second-generation newmans here. Um, I would like to offer a toast of my own. Maybe more of an apology. You know, over the years, I have caused my dad a lot of trouble. Too much heartache. Nikki, I… you have every reason to feel the way you do about me and for what it’s worth. I regret it all. Now, more than ever, I see my father’s wisdom. And I understand the depths of his love, not just for me, but for my son, connor. For everyone in the family. A man that pushes us to our limits, but goes beyond to help us. And to the only woman in the world that is his match in every way. Connor could not ask for better grandparents.

Nick: Good job, bro.

Summer: As a third-generation newman and a decidedly spoiled grandchild, I can say with confidence that I have learned everything that I know about love and family from the two of you. The way you fiercely protect each other and everybody that you love. The way that you always make time for one another and for all of us. And yes, they are very generous with their gifts. I mean, check out that ring that my grandmother is wearing.

All: Ooh!

Nick: Yeah.

Summer: But that does not compare at all to the love and the support and the loyalty that you show all of us. Happy 40th anniversary. I love you.

Abby: Well, it’s not a secret that I was a little bit of a brat. But my dad’s patience was as infinite as his love. You have set the bar very high for how far you will go for love. Some people might think it’s a little too far, but your mind can’t be changed, and you cannot be stopped. And nikki newman, you are the only person in the whole wide world who could match his energy. But thank you for finding a place for me in your family and in your heart. 40 years, that is a lot of love. You’re an inspiration to us all. I love you both.

Devon: Um, I just wanted to say that I’m really happy that you guys are celebrating your anniversary in the same place that honors my dad because you both meant a whole lot to neil, and you mean just as much to me, because you’ve always treated me and loved me like family. And you’ve shown me what true love really looks like and what you can accomplish with it. And I know that the power of that love has been felt by everybody in this room. So thank you.

Michael: Oh, victor. We’ve worked together, against each other. We’ve been friends, enemies, and everything in between. But the one constant in your life, victor, has been your love for nikki. When you found nikki, you found your heart.

Lauren: Mm. And we are all so grateful that you did.

Victor: Careful.

Jack: I have always been impressed with nikki’s strength and resilience. Think about it. I mean, she has put up with victor newman for all this time. Recently, I got to see just how much victor loves his wife, so much so that he’s willing to endure having me in her life, having me here at this party. So to victor, who has shown loving, loyal respect to an amazing, one-of-a-kind woman, and nikki, your commitment to your marriage and your incredible strength are a lesson to all of us.

Victor: My darling. Many moons ago, you looked into my eyes and you said, “victor newman, you will never love another woman the way you love me.” How right she was. You’ve taught me about love, what it means, what it requires, and you’ve given me a family I thank the lord for every day. All my success in life means nothing without you, my darling. Without this wonderful family. It has been a hell of a ride. I wonder where the rest of the ride will take us to.

Nikki: Well, there were a few detours here and there. But we always end up here, together, stronger for the challenges we’ve faced. But I know, with you by my side, and your belief in me, in us, that anything, everything, is possible. You are the love of my life, victor newman, and I am blessed every single day that I can call you my husband. Tonight, celebrating with our family and friends means everything, and no one can take it away from us.

Michael: To nicky and victor!

Lauren: And glorious, enduring love! Type 2 diabetes?

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

[ Indistinct chatting ]

Abby: Well, a new niece. That doesn’t happen every day. I’m sorry I haven’t been around much, but I heard you were trying to take things slow, and too many newmans at once can be a little overwhelming.

Devon: A little?

Abby: Hey.

Nikki: You and michael, your toast. You’re amazing friends.

Lauren: Well, michael did most of the talking, you know, like usual. But I agreed with everything that he said. And from your glow, I can tell you’re having a wonderful time tonight.

Nikki: I’m having an incredible time.

Lauren: I’m just so glad you’ve gotten your sobriety back. You probably won’t even need me at newman media soon.

Diane: Congratulations, victor.

Victor: Well, my goodness, diane, jack.

Jack: Victor, I hope you weren’t offended by my toast.

[ Victor chuckling ]

Victor: Considering the source, it was very appropriate. By the way, where’s ashley? I’d asked her to come by.

Diane: Oh, she meant to send her regrets. She’s, um, she’s feeling under the weather.

Billy: I remember ashley’s phantom pregnancy when she thought she had a child, but I don’t remember a lot about her earlier psychological issues.

Traci: It was triggered by trauma. Ashley was suffering from what they called hysterical amnesia. She left town. And thank god, she finally returned and she recovered. She had a few breaks after that. But this time, it’s so different.

Billy: How so?

Traci: Well, in the past, she always got help and took treatment and recovered and put it all behind her. And now, she’s resisting any kind of treatment.

Billy: Until now.

Traci: Yes, thank god. Until now. She’s willing to see a therapist and she’s willing to get to the bottom of what’s going on here.

Billy: That’s good. That’s good.

Traci: Billy?

Billy: Yeah?

Traci: I have a couple of questions for you, if you don’t mind.

Billy: Open book.

[ Traci chuckling ]

Traci: You’re so sweet. Well, you had– you had mentioned that you’ve been through something similar to this a few years back.

Billy: Yep, that’s true.

Traci: I was wondering if you wanted to talk about that a little bit more. If you don’t mind.

Billy: I don’t talk about it very much. But that was a very tough time for me.

Summer: Thank you for being my date tonight. You know, the full-on newman experience isn’t always an easy one.

Chance: There’s no place I’d rather be.

Adam: Miss? You know me. This is the best part of the night.

Sally: Well, the evening isn’t over yet.

Cole: Wow.

Victoria: She really does look so happy, doesn’t she?

Cole: Yeah, it’s just so great to see her so relaxed. Just comfortable in her own skin.

Victoria: She was very excited about tonight.

Cole: Uh… about the, uh…

Victoria: The kiss?

Cole: Yeah. That. I hope I didn’t overstep. And I’m sorry if I made you feel uncomfortable in any way.

Victoria: No! No, I’m not uncomfortable at all. I mean, it was a surprise. But it wasn’t really a surprise.

Cole: Hm. I felt the same way.

Victor: Hey, son.

Adam: Hell of a party, pop.

Victor: Thank you.

Adam: Congrats again on 40 years.

Sally: You two are truly an inspiration.

Nikki: That’s very kind of you to say.

Victor: How is connor, by the way?

[ Adam sighing ]

Adam: I’m afraid not good. But I will keep you posted.

Nikki: Oh, the poor little guy. So far away. No family nearby. Would I be able to send him a care package?

Adam: He would love that. Thank you.

Nikki: Anything we can do to help him get through it.

Victor: It goes for you as well. You know that, right?

Adam: I do.

Victor: Don’t worry about connor. I’ll take care of things. He’ll be all right.

Adam: Thanks, dad.

Victor: So, why don’t you go out on the dance floor with miss spectra? Have a great time, okay? A nice evening.

Billy: Oh, it wasn’t that. I always know I can go to you, but… you know, it was just my own issue. I just didn’t want to really share it with anyone at the time. Although, I did confide in jack a little bit.

Traci: Um… thank you for trusting me with all of this, and I hope you know, you can always come to any one of us. We will rally around you, just like we’re doing for ashley right now. No judgment, only love.

Diane: Kyle. I didn’t expect to see you here, but I’m glad you are.

Kyle: Well, harrison wanted to come, so I gave him a ride.

Diane: You’re a good dad.

Kyle: I try.

Diane: Yeah. It’s a wonderful party, isn’t it? I don’t know how victor and nikki pulled it off for all these years. I mean, well, granted, 40 is a bit of a fudge. It neatly erases my marriages to victor and jack’s to nikki, but still, it’s quite an accomplishment.

Kyle: Mom, mom, mom. I know you’re making an extra effort because you’re unhappy with me, but that doesn’t change that.

Diane: No, kyle, I’m not unhappy with you. I’m unhappy with the situation, but I’d like to believe it will all work out.

Kyle: Yeah. Yeah, one way or another. Things will work out just fine.

Victor: Well, now, look at this. What do we have here? Oh.

Nikki: Oh, harrison, how beautiful.

Victor: It’s so nice.

Nikki: I know right where we’ll hang it.

Victor: Yeah. Yeah. Thank you. Your daddy’s right over–

Nikki: Thank you so much.

Victor: Look how charming you are. My goodness. Daddy’s right over there.

Diane: Oh.

Harrison: Dad, I’m sleepy.

Kyle: I hear you, buddy. All right, we’re calling it. Harrison’s tired and I’m not really part of this party anyway.

Summer: Good night, sweetie. I love you.

Kyle: Oh, grab your backpack, pal.

Summer: Yeah, here you go.

Claire: Harrison’s amazing.

Summer: Yeah, he is.

Claire: You and kyle have done such a wonderful job raising such a happy and smart little guy.

Summer: We do our best.

Nick: Got to hand it to you, you know how to throw a party.

Victor: Part of the newman tradition, you know.

Nick: Yes, sir.

Victor: By the way, let’s keep an eye on security, all right? We’ve got to keep a lid on all that.

Nick: Yeah, I’ve been talking with the security guards all night. There’s been nothing unusual, no uninvited guests, no sign of jordan.

Victor: Well, to be honest with you, I wish there had been because then we could have finally caught her.

Nick: You know what they say, dad?

Victor: What?

Nick: Be careful what you wish for. Struggling with the highs and lows of bipolar 1?

Nikki: Hello.

Victor: Are you happy, my darling?

Nikki: I am as happy as I was 40 years ago in your arms with our future ahead of us. Thank you so much, darling. Tonight has been wonderful.

Victor: Yes, it has. Wonderful.

[ Applause ] Shall we?

Nikki: Certainly.

Victor: If you don’t mind, I would love to dance with my lovely bride.

Claire: Someone’s going to miss their lucky bun.

[ Soft piano music playing ]

Victor: Happy anniversary.

Nikki: Happy anniversary, darling.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless…

Claire: It’s getting late. I should go.

Kyle: No. Please. Stay. Dad, I wish this was a game, but it’s not. Damn it. Damn it! Why did I trust her with him?

Victoria: Why would she bring harrison here?

Summer: Claire took harrison. They’re both missing.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


I’ve missed you. And the invader is not the same without you. I miss it, too. I truly enjoyed the work.

[ Inhales sharply ] But in the words of a famous american poet, you got to know when to fold them. My best days aren’t ahead of me. I hope you don’t mind if I still call you every day with all my problems, especially when they’re ethically sticky. I’d be hurt if you didn’T. Anything in particular? Let’s just eat before I lose my appetite.

The invader gives me heartburn. Sorry to hear that. You know, there’s something else I-I wanted to say to you. I am so sorry, but I can’t be your extra one for the wedding. Why not? Because there’s a slight chance that I may be getting my law license back. I’ll take it you got my message about some of your bank accounts being unfrozen. I did. Fast work.

[ Chuckles ] I’m diane miller. Do I have enough money… to buy back carly’s half of the metro court? I don’t know what my mom was doing with agent cates, but… oh, it was all too clear what they were doing. Uh, carly was picking up room service for two, and agent cates was wearing nothing but a towel. Nina, things aren’t always as they appear. I’m sure carly wouldn’t cheat on drew. No, she wouldn’t be cheating, curtis. Carly and I broke up. I’m sorry. I didn’t know. My mother’s personal life is her business, not yours. Mm. I just think it’s a shame that she would hook up with a guy who’s a federal agent two minutes after she and drew broke up. You don’t tell your buddies, but I think your coat is the shiniest. You must get a lot of vitamin a, d, and e, huh? You again? Any luck with the job search?

[ Sighs ] Not really. I’ve applied for everything — receptionist positions, corporate communications, positions in insurance and public affairs, most of them in new york and connecticut. Yeah, I mean, I’d hate to see you move, but, uh, at least you’re getting nibbles, right? Yeah, but nothing that interests me. And I’m tired of being considered because these jobs are public facing and I fit the company’s image. Yeah, well, the receptionist ones are definitely out. I mean, you’re way too qualified for that. But any company would be lucky to have you. Well, not if they only care about my looks. Been there, done that. We — we need gels. It’s just not flattering, the light to the product — to — to the product. Um, you know, we need warmth. Excuse me. Hi. Could we perhaps get some lighting gels? We would really appreciate it. Well, I need to get the producer’s permit. No, jennifer, it’s okay. Just do it. Hello, ladies. Are you ready for another blockbuster segment? Oh, absolutely. All set. Oh, well, no sasha I hear. Unfortunately not. Uh, well, I don’t know this blaze, but my granddaughters are very excited. I’ve been ordered to get an autograph. So is she here yet? Well, um, we’ve decided to streamline the duties of the face, so blaze will not be the spokesmodel today. Ah. Then who is doing the selling today? Who else? Moi.

It’s fully electric, not a hybrid? Oh, that is so awesome! Yeah, yeah, yeah. Send me all the specs and the financials. Send me everything. I’m so excited you have the pickup in stock. Okay. Thank you. Yeah, I’ll be waiting. Don’t tell me that you and chase have eschewed the traditional limo ride to the church for a-a 4×4. Before you believe what nina’s telling you, just consider the source. Oh. Well, I would imagine michael’s used to this. I mean, carly’s not known for her discretion. Okay, carly has a right to privacy, just like everybody else. I doubt any of us would like everybody to know what we do behind closed doors. Oh, that’s the thing. Agent cates’ door wasn’t closed. I mean, they were perfectly visible from the hall. I don’t know. I don’t know. Maybe carly just needed a good…night out. Okay. We don’t know what did or didn’t happen. What we do know is that carly and agent cates are consenting adults, so whatever happened is none of our damn business. Yep. Curtis is right. I’m done discussing it. Yeah, yeah. I mean, it must be painful, knowing that carly got over your relationship so quickly. So, you are the spokesperson? Uh, yes, siree bob. Because, uh, who better than the founder? And nobody knows the product better than lucy. No. Yes, indeed. I mean, I have been in on every single step of developing our new face cream. Okay, well, I am going to have to check with my producer about this. Okay. Well, that certainly could have gone a lot better. What is with you? What is with your tepid attitude? Tepid? Uh, yeah. You just stood there like you — you swallowed a fish. W-why didn’t — why didn’t you have my back more? Um, maybe because I don’t agree with your decision to do this. Why are you insisting on taking this all on yourself? Okay. Why are you so against — oh, wait a minute. You want to get up there yourself. You do, don’t you? You want the spotlight, is that correct? You have to be kidding me. I want sasha in the spotlight. The public knows her, and they love her. Okay, fine. But you have to get over that because sash–

[ Whispering ] Sasha quit. Yeah, thanks to you. Hey. Hey. I got your text. How did you know I was in the hotel? Well, nina told me. I guess you spent the night in, uh, agent cates’ room. Ohh! That woman! She called to tell you that? What, is she gonna put it on the cover of the invader? I-I was — I was I-in drew’s office downstairs, and then she showed up, and she filled us in. She told drew? And me and curtis ashford. We were in the middle of a meeting. She once told sonny that I was having an affair with brick, and she was wrong. I mean, does that woman ever learn? And just to be clear, I stayed over with agent cates. I did not sleep with him. I know. I know, mom. How is drew? I doubt you have developed a sudden interest in the hospitality industry, so I can only assume — I’m going to give the metro court back to carly. There it is. That’s a very generous impulse, my friend, but it’s going to take some finessing. First of all, nina has no incentive to sell. Well, give her one. She can name her price. No, she can’T. Absolutely not. I have far too much pride in my skills as a negotiator to ever hand anyone a blank check, much less that real-estate heiress. She can make a little profit, but I’m not going to let you overpay. Okay, diane, handle it however you think is best. Just make it happen. Your real obstacle is going to be carly. Why? Because you’re not the first person to off– offer to help her reclaim the metro court. Initially, olivia offered to loan her the money. Then nina, in a craven attempt to suck up to sonny, offered to sell it back to her. Then sonny, then michael, and carly has said no always. She wants to do it herself. Oh, you don’t worry about carly. I’ll work it out with her.

Sasha, you are still looking for a job, right? You’re not trying to get rid of me, are you? Never. But, uh, you know, as great as it’s been, you can’t just hang out here with me and the horses forever. I know. I’m going to run out of savings at some point. Sooner than I had hoped, actually. But I love being here with the horses. They don’t care about how I look. Yeah, the horses appreciate you for you. Exactly. I get what you’re saying about being underestimated. People underestimate you, too, don’t they? Occasionally. But, I mean, you’re on a whole nother level, you know? You got brains, business savvy, personality, not to mention a strong work ethic. I’m proud to say that I helped develop deception’s initial business plan. Yeah, yeah, I bet lucy and maxie are kicking themselves right now for letting you walk away. Should i be kicking myself? Was I crazy to leave deception? Why? You thinking about going back? You know, if you hadn’t undermined sasha by telling her she needed to be edgier, we wouldn’t be in this mess. What mess? We are not in a mess. There’s no mess. Deception, it’s not in a mess. And I am perfectly capable of being a pitch woman. Not as capable as sasha. Our customers admired her, lucy, not just for her beauty, but for her courage and the challenges she faced. She justified their faith. She’s not just beautiful, she’s inspirational. And you can’t buy that kind of narrative. What — what are you all of a sudden, the voice of reason? Or is this — you know what it is? It seems like right now you’re a little bit power hungry. Lucy, I-I have just as much of a right to an opinion as you do. We are equal partners. Yeah. We are. No, you’re absolutely right. And as such, we should work together against our common enemy, tracy quartermaine. But you know what it feels like? It feels like that your friendship with brook lynn has clouded your judgment lately. And maybe tracy could then bring down deception. Tracy didn’t want to get rid of sasha. She actually lobbied to keep her. Until she didn’t, because sasha quit and she was not fired. Okay. All right. Fine. Maybe if sasha had felt heard and included, she would have stuck around. But you’re only interested in your opinion. Face it, lucy, your love affair with yourself is the real problem. Chase and I are going tolorence on our honeymoon. Oh, congratulations. Florence is beautiful. It’s one of my most favorite spots on earth. Ah, I cannot wait to stroll through the boboli gardens hand in hand with chase. It’s going to be so romantic. What does this have to do with a truck? Well, since you so generously are paying for the wedding, chase insisted on paying for the honeymoon. And florence is such a dream come true, but it is more expensive than a stateside destination. So he sold his truck to pay for the trip. Wow. I got to hand it to him. That is a sweet gesture. Yeah, he loved that truck. That is why I am surprising him with a truck as a wedding gift. And guess what? It is fully electric. It is top of the line. Don’t do it. Come again? Disrespecting your husband is no way to start a marriage. I’m not disrespecting him. I love him. But there’s no reason he has to choose between our honeymoon and a truck. We can afford both. Brook lynn, you can afford both. You are way out of line. I’m sorry. But, curtis, maybe you don’t know drew as well as you think. I love you. Love you, too. Yo, drew, that was uncalled for. I’ve survived worse. Now, come on. Where were we? In a minute. You know, I-I wasn’t aware that you and carly had broken up. How come you didn’t tell me? Well, because you had a few things to focus on, man.

[ Sighs ] Right. You know, I remember when you came to the gym and you told me that things were rocky between you and carly. I thought you’d worked it out, but I guess you didn’T. You seemed so happy. Yeah. That was, um — that was before jason came back. And cates didn’t want to go to the hospital, so I brought him back here. I stayed with him so I could wake him up every couple hours. Basically, I was on concussion watch. Where’d you find him?

[ Sighs ] A couple blocks from the coffee warehouse. I mean, at first, I thought he was trailing jason, but then I realized he must have been following diane. Why? Because jason’s too hard to follow. I-it didn’t bother you that — that the guy you sat up with all night taking care of wants to bust jason? No, it doesn’t bother me, because cates isn’t going to find any evidence against jason. There’s nothing in that warehouse but coffee. And sonny is so furious with jason right now, there’s no way he’s going to bring him back to the business. So basically, sonny is doing jason a favor. So instead of sitting and enjoying a wedding with you and the happy couple, I will be pacing up and down a hotel room, preparing for my appearance in front of the appellate division of the new york state supreme court. Alexis, this is momentous. Although I have to admit, I’m a little hurt that you kept it from me until now. I really don’t think it could actually happen. I mean, it’s the longest of long shots. I don’t know, you and diane teaming up to argue your case? I’d take that bet. Well, here’s to you. No, don’T. No. I don’t want to jinx anything. Sorry. I’m alternating between pretending this isn’t happening and having paralyzing anxiety, because I really, really want this so much.

Chase and i share everything. What’s mine is his and vice versa. Sounds great. Very unrealistic. Don’t go there. Okay? We already had the prenup conversation. It is not happening. I totally respect your misguided decision to forgo the prenup. However, I have learned from painful experience that having more personal wealth than your husband puts undue stress on the marriage. No offense, grandmother, but chase is nothing like your ex-husbands.

[ Chuckles ] You mean my ex-fortune hunters? You’re absolutely right.

[ Laughs ] But… I know his father, and I am assuming that, in addition to being a stand-up guy, chase was taught to be the breadwinner in the family. Please. That is so old school. Brook lynn, have you not noticed that your husband-to-be is very traditional? It’s part of his charm.

[ Sighs ] I almost blew it, didn’t I? You did it out of love. Just like he sold his truck out of love. But you going off and buying him another one totally negates the sacrifice he made. You’d be devaluing his loving gesture. Wow. You saw that. I didn’T. Well, I have had many years to make mistakes and learn from them. But buck up, girly. You’ve got yourself a thoughtful, generous, devoted husband-to-be. The best. I’m just sad he has to give anything up for me. You know what happens when well-meaning people find out that you have a terminal illness? You start getting suggestions — mindfulness, uh, positive visualization, prayer, alternative medicines, healthy diets, yoga, acupuncture, you name it. That’s got to be really overwhelming. Yes, but you get used to it. I mean, I know it comes from a good place. Have I done that? No, no, not at all. So what’s your point? Just that, despite what other people may suggest, I think what it all comes down to is what you choose to believe. Alexis, do you believe that you could still be a good lawyer? I do. I still have as much passion for it as I’ve ever had, and there’s nothing more satisfying than helping someone get the justice they deserve in court, no matter what the obstacles. I’ll bet you were a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom. I hope I get the chance to see you back in action. I hope you do, too. But you should know that most of these appeals are denied, which is why I’ve been so quiet about it. Well, then I’ll have faith for both of us. I wish everyone felt that way. The proofs from the dumbo shoot are on your desk. No one can locate pietro, and he still hasn’t delivered the dress for the cover. And those are your urgent messages. All right, I can get to dumbo later. And please call the agent and tell them that if pietro doesn’t deliver in 24 hours, he is off the cover and my roster. I’m not doing this with him again. All right, these can wait. These can — really? Olivia? She keeps calling. I can’t believe she’s still harping on the color refresh I gave the fourth-floor bathrooms. And you know what? Forget about calling the agent. I want that pleasure myself. Oh, and if drew cain calls, I’m not available. You know that I loved carly. I still love carly. But I am moving on, you know? I’m — I’m — I-I’m getting over it. I’ve accepted the fact that she’ll always put jason first. And that is exactly why I had to end it. You ended things? Are you sure carly is okay with that? I mean, after everything you’ve been through? And you put your life on the line for her. Curtis, believe me, we — we both know that it’s for the best. I-I-I did us both a favor. That sucks. It does. It does. But I also know that it’s the right decision. I really do. And the next time that I’m in a relationship, I’m going for the brass ring. I want what you and portia have. I want it to be tested, survivable, solid. That’s true. That’s — that’s what we have. We have definitely been through the fire. Hey, we’re still standing. Couldn’t be happier for you. I am just so passionate about my company. You know, right now, deception is the most important thing in my life. Yeah, I — I know you love deception, but so do I. I know. You know, I have nothing but love and respect for you. I mean, come on. That’s why I lured you away from crimson. “Join us at deception.” But this friendship you have, you know, with tracy’s granddaughter, it just — it sets my teeth on edge because I cannot let that harpy ruin everything I — we worked so hard to build. Yeah. I mean, we built deception, lucy, together. And unless we get on the same page and start trusting each other again, tracy’s not going to have to lift a finger to destroy deception. We’re going to do it for her. Well, ladies, my producer agrees with me. Um, lucy is not a suitable replacement for sasha. So, your segment is canceled. Do you want me to put you in touch with a real-estate agent? Why? To find you a place to live? I have a place to live. A rented room above bobbie’s? Yeah, I like it there. Okay, well, if you change your mind, and if I can convince nina to sell, you’ll have a whole hotel full of rooms to choose from. I like where I am, diane. Did you sign the papers that my assistant dropped off last night? I didn’t — I didn’t get any papers. What are you talking about? He was supposed to bring them to you last night. Oh. Hi, diane. Hi, carly. [ Chuckles ] Oh, those look familiar. Yeah. Sorry. Your assistant dropped them by bobbie’s, and I said that I would bring them over. But, you know, I got sidetracked. Jason, start signing. You don’t need a notary. I will pick them up from you the next time I see you. Which I think will be soon. I’m off. Hey. You okay? Yeah. Yeah. I’m good. Thanks — uh, thanks for bringing the papers by. Oh, yeah. That was just an excuse. I just — I just wanted to see you. Did something happen? Yeah, I — I did something you’re not going to like.

Guess not. What was that? You asked if I was thinking about going back to deception, and just hearing you say that made my stomach drop. I guess that’s a clear answer for you. I don’t want to do something that I dread. Besides, deception has already moved on. They have a new face, and they booked a segment on “home & heart” today, actually. So no regrets? Not one. I may not know what I want to do, but I do know what I don’t want to do. That’s progress. Yeah. Sasha, when you do figure out what you want, let me know? Molly’s worried that if my appeal is denied, that I’ll start drinking again. Do you think that could happen? I’m an alcoholic. A relapse is always possible. Maybe that’s why I’ve downplayed it so much, because I’m worried that the disappointment might… might what? Destroy you? It’s destroyed me before, and molly had a front-row seat. You know, the life that I’ve rebuilt does not get my pulse racing, but it’s steady. And I worry that if I get my hopes up, it might be too big of a gamble, and I’ve worked too hard for my sobriety. So is this a risk I can afford? It may be old school, but no spouse or partner worth their salt is going to want to live on their other half’s money. You’ve had to deal with this your entire life, haven’t you? The family money has given me… a lot of advantages, but it’s also caused me a lot of pain. Well, those men are idiots. How could anyone look at you and only see dollar signs? You are an amazing woman, filled with wit and depth and — and beauty and surprising sensitivity. I mean, if those guys couldn’t see that, it’s their loss. Yeah, well, I’m a catch. Yeah. So are you. Well, not that the quartermaines are poster children for happy marriages. I mean, look at edward and lila. Yeah, they were in love. But how many times did he cheat on her? Yeah, too many. And alan and monica. Serial cheaters. And they argued about it the whole time. And my father was a bigamist. He was married to my mother and katherine bell at the same time! Wait a minute. What’s your point? What if chase and i follow the same pattern? What if our marriage is doomed already? I mean, you are in charge of the kitchen, is that correct? Well, I may have — oh, I like that. I may have authorized the slightly cutting back of the service staff, but I did not intend for the room service orders to arrive cold. Ms. Reeves can’t be disturbed. If you’d like, I can make you an appointment. I wouldn’T. Excuse me. Oh. Wait. I expect the room service to maintain the same high standards as the rest of the hotel. Thank you very much. I’m sorry, nina. I told her you didn’t want to be — that’s okay, madison. That’s all right. I understand that ms. Miller does not like to take no for an answer. If you are here for the divorce papers, you have wasted your time. No, I’m actually here to make an offer on the hotel. I have a client who is interested in purchasing your half of the metro court and willing to go 3% over market value. Who’s the client? Jason morgan. He was just lying there. And you got out of the car. Carly, that’s too big of a risk to take. I couldn’t just leave him there. I mean, besides, the muggers took off after I blasted my horn. Anyway, I grabbed john, I took him back to his room at the metro court, and I spent the night there, waking him up every two hours to make sure he was okay. And he was jumped a block away from here? Yes, but they didn’t steal anything. They just beat him up. Okay, so w-what are you thinking? I’m thinking maybe it wasn’t a mugging. Maybe it was sonny.

You cannot just cancel our segment. Look, this is live tv. I cannot go on air with an amateur.

[ Scoffs ] An amateur? You know what? I — I hosted the general hospital nurses’ ball for years and years, and it was on a stage and on camera, and I raised millions of dollars for gh. Congratulations. But you will not be selling face cream on “home & heart” today. Okay, I-if you cancel our segment, what are you going to put in its place? And why would you turn your back on a sure thing? Oh, we have lots of pretaped segments. I mean, this isn’t the first time this has ever happened. And with sasha, it was a sure thing. Lucy… whole nother story. Okay, wait a minute. Deception is your highest earner. You said so yourself. All of our segments have sold out. So will this one. Risk, it’s a funny thing. You don’t want to do it unnecessarily. But then again, you’ll never get anywhere if you don’t do it at all. Alexis, trust me when I tell you that the things you regret at the end of your life are not the things you tried to do and failed at. It’s the chances you didn’t take. Let’s say you get reinstated and then you’re back doing the thing you love. But let’s say you don’T. You’ll still know that you gave it your best effort, and that’s its own reward. You taking this chance is like skydiving was for me.

[ Chuckles ] Terrifying? Life-affirming. Cates stopped by bobbie’s a couple times, and I just assumed he was working me for information about sonny, but he never asked me anything significant. But when I told sonny, he was furious, the way he was towards you the other night after your arraignment. You think sonny had cates beat up? I definitely think it’s possible. Yeah. I mean, he hates him. And not because he’s an fbi agent, but because of the history they have. I know the basics about what happened with karen wexler, but sonny regrets it, and you know sonny. When he regrets something, he’s volatile. And on top of that, john was stone’s older brother. And sonny feels that he abandoned stone. So, yeah, I think it’s possible that he would be targeting cates. I don’t know. I mean, look, john cates is an fbi agent. Assaulting an fbi agent is a federal crime. And sonny — sonny knows that. Sonny knows it. He doesn’t care. Since when has jason morgan been interested in the hotel business? I’m just here to make the offer. Well, I would imagine this is for carly. Does he know whose bed carly was in last night? Might change his mind. Interested? Not interested?

[ Knock on door ] Come in. I’m so sorry to interrupt, but accounting needs you to sign off on the ad rates. Uh, yes. Got it right here. You’re so busy, nina. I imagine it must be so difficult to run both crimson and the metro court. I love them both. I hadn’t realized you were interested in the mundane — cranky guests, plumbing issues, all that tableware and linen to keep track of. Well, I’ll leave you to it. 15% over market. 4%. I do not believe that your marriage is doomed. Just be aware that what you think is reasonable, chase may think is extravagant, like public school versus private school. I hear you. As long as you understand that you have very different frames of reference about money, you’ll be okay. Uh, on that front. Chase really loves you. I love him, too. Sorry you weren’t treated with the same respect.

[ Chuckles ] It’s true. I kissed a lot of frogs. I even exchanged vows with some of them. But in the end, I got my prince. My marriage to luke started with blackmail, but it — it ended with a true partnership. We were equals. Luke accepted me f-for me. He loved me. And I did the same for him. Sounds like you were very lucky. I was. So are you.

Thanks, granny. I think chase and i will make it. I certainly hope so. And whatever happens, I’m always on your side. Back at ya. Okay, now I have to get down to the stables because I’m riding again. Oh! Have fun. Thank you. Good talk. Anytime. Very funny!

[ Laughs ] What happened to you? Ranger. Yeah, yeah, he’s got a whole bag of tricks. Not a mean bone in his body, though. Yeah, he’s a sweetheart, but he’s messy. Mm-hmm. Yeah. Are you sure you don’t want to reconsider deception?

[ Laughs ] Right? Can you imagine if haven de havilland saw me now? And I am here today with lucy coe, the founder of deception. Welcome, lucy. So tell us what fabulous product you have for us today. Well, thank you, haven. In fact, I’m so thrilled to bring you our brand-new face cream for the woman on the go. It is super moisturizing. Goes on, though, like a dream. It’s lightweight. And, listen, you put this on just one time, and you’re good for the whole day. Oh, sounds like my kind of moisturizer.

I tell you, I am so busy and definitely on the go. Oh, tell me about it. No one is busier than I am, let me tell you. I mean, besides, you know, running deception, of course, I have a thriving real-estate business, and I also, for many years, was on the advisory board of elq. And my vote kind of contributed

to major decisions that I — I — just recently, though, um, that’s changed a bit. That’s a long story. You know, I could — I could tell you all about it later. I think you viewers out there, though, probably recognize me the most for being the mistress of ceremonies at general hospital’s nurses’ ball for many years. Well, every — well, actually, um, until last year, uh, I wasn’t, uh, because, well, I was in protective custody. That parachute jump was euphoric, and I almost backed out. And when I forced myself to do it, I realized, up till then, I’d been living in fear. And I don’t want to do that anymore, so… I have to try. I think they call that resilience, which is also life-affirming. And as far as I’m concerned, whether you ever practice law again or not, you’ve already won. Thanks for coming by, man. I really want to discuss this wellness/fitness idea further. Yeah, definitely. Drew, I — I still can’t believe nina came at you like that. It’s all good. I mean, she knew what she was doing. Yeah. Maybe. I think she’s still hurting over sonny. Go easy on her. Yeah. No. Nina and I have reached an understanding and have made accommodations with each other. 9%. Take it or leave it. I will take it back to jason. You know what? This might be a little premature. I, uh — I know we’re talking about price, but I haven’t made up my mind to sell, so…I need to think about it. The offer won’t be on the table indefinitely. If jason wants the hotel so badly, he can wait. So is that why you took care of cates? To make up for what you think sonny did? No, no, I was just trying to help. It wasn’t till after that I thought about it and I realized it could have been sonny. Okay, there’s nothing you can do about it. So here’s the thing. Cates is either going to figure it out, or he’s not. The best thing you can do is just stay out of this. Yeah. That could be a problem. Carly, why? Look, I told you that last night I spent the night in john’s room in a chair. Okay? But this morning, I ordered room service, and when I opened the door to get the tray, john came out of the shower wearing nothing but a towel, and nina was standing right there, and she saw him. She left a vapor trail straight to michael and drew. It’s only going to be a matter of time before nina tells the entire world that I spent the night with john cates, including sonny.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Steffy: Finn, this makes no sense.

Finn: No, I know. It’s completely insane, but you should have seen deacon. He’s really shaken up about it. He– he believes it.

Steffy: Wait, he seriously thinks… deacon thinks that sheila might be alive?

Ridge: You really are losing it, aren’t you?

Deacon: Wait a second. Listen. Ridge, I know it sounds impossible.

Ridge: Because it is impossible. Look at you, you’re still cleaning up after the service you had.

Deacon: I know, but–

Ridge: But what? What’s going on with you? What are you talking about?

Deacon: I–

Carter: Zende, I’ve been picking up on vibes for quite some time that something’s wrong and I’m sorry. I should have been a better friend. I should have asked you about it sooner.

Zende: No, no, no, man. Come on. I probably would have just denied it anyway.

Carter: But you’re not denying now? You’re ready to talk about it?

Zende: I think I need to.

Carter: Okay, so whatever’s going on, it has something to do with luna?

Luna: I know that you’ve noticed I haven’t been acting like myself lately.

Rj: Yeah, I can tell, you– you’ve been kind of off for a while. Ever since my granddad’s wedding. Luna, whatever it is, I promise you, you can trust me. Anything.

Zende: It’s no secret, is it? How much I respect luna.

Carter: I think we all do around here.

Zende: She’s just, she’s so beautiful and smart and creative.

Carter: Yeah, yeah, she’s all those things. She’s also rj’s girlfriend. You don’t need a reminder about that, do you, zende? Zende, please tell me you understand that rj is with luna.

Luna: You’re so caring, rj. And so understanding. I mean, you’re everything that I ever dreamed of in a guy.

Rj: I’m not going anywhere. That’s more reality and less dream.

Luna: Okay. I– I really hope that that’s true.

Ridge: I gotta say, it’s not much of a memorial if the person that you’re talking about and honoring is not– if I’m– hey, you went down to the crematorium. You saw the–

Deacon: Yes, yes, I did. Yes, that’s true.

Ridge: Okay, so what? What are you talking about? What is this nonsense about her still being in our lives?

Steffy: Some of sheila’s crazy must have rubbed off on deacon if he is going around telling people that he doesn’t think that sheila’s dead.

Finn: I don’t know. He’s probably just processing grief, I guess.

Steffy: Yeah, he must be. I mean, I– I was there. I saw sheila. I mean, I’m the one who…

Finn: He’s not– he’s not thinking straight.

Steffy: Yeah, I mean, what a weird thing to say. Deacon saw her body. Unless he doesn’t trust his own eyes.

Finn: Well, no, that’s just the thing. That’s– that’s why he’s questioning it.

Steffy: What?

Finn: Her toes.

Steffy: Her toes? What? Hey! It’s your dry skin.

Carter: Look, zende, if you have feelings for luna, what am I talking about if? Of course you do. It’s written all over your face. Rj is your cousin, okay? You can’t act… hey, what’s that look? You’ve already acted on them?

Zende: Luna is totally committed to rj.

Carter: That doesn’t answer my question. You can be committed and still make a very bad decision.

Zende: It wasn’t her fault.

Carter: So something did happen.

Zende: Yeah. The night of my granddad’s wedding.

Luna: Before I tell you what’s been going on with me and why I haven’t been acting like myself, I just, I want to make it clear how much I love you, okay? And how much I treasure this relationship. It’s so important to me that you know that.

Rj: I do.

Luna: I mean, the thought of someone or something coming between us, like, it horrifies me. I’d never want that. Ever.

Rj: Do you– do you think that’s happened? Because I don’T. No one could come between us.

Luna: I want to believe that. I really do.

Rj: Luna, whatever this is, you are going to feel better if you tell me.

Luna: No, you’re right. You’re right. I– I need to open up to you. You deserve to know what happened.

Ridge: I get what you’re trying to do. You’re trying to keep her memory alive. But just know that for everybody else, she’s dead. And that includes finn. And I know you’re trying to get in his ear. I get all that.

Deacon: No.

Ridge: Well, no, you were trying to guilt him into coming to this memorial–

Deacon: I wasn’t guilting him. I just invited him to come. It’s not the same thing.

Ridge: Either way, he came. He was here and dead mommy was happy. Everyone was happy. But that’s the end of it. ‘Cause steffy, finn, they got a lot of things to worry about. A lot of things to work out. And they don’t need you walking around saying that sheila’s still with us. Deacon, come on, man. I like you. In your apartment, you should have a little corner with a candle, incense. And on her birthday every year, you can sacrifice a frog or a garden snake or something and do that. But for everyone else, she’s gone. Out of our lives. You may be wrong, ridge.

Steffy: Sheila’s toes? What about them?

Finn: All nine of them. You remember the fake bear attack?

Steffy: Oh, yeah. Yeah, when she cut off her own toe and convinced everyone that she was dead. Yeah, I remember. Why are we bringing this up? It’s disgusting.

Finn: It’s deranged.

Steffy: Okay, so what does this ridiculous bear attack have to do with deacon’s deranged syndrome?

Finn: Because deacon saw ten.

Steffy: Huh?

Finn: Ten toes.

Steffy: Wha– (vo) you might be used to living with your albuterol asthma

Carter: Okay, so let me get this straight. Luna cheated on rj with you?

Zende: Not in the way that you’re thinking. Do you remember that night? It wasn’t long after the ceremony. Luna took off.

Carter: Vaguely? She was tired or something?

Zende: Tired enough to want to go home. Only… she didn’t make it home. She only made it as far as across the courtyard.

Carter: You mean to the guest house?

Zende: Yeah. Carter, she ended up in my place.

Luna: You mentioned your grandfather’s wedding earlier.

Rj: Yeah, it was– it was after that that I just noticed something was different with you. I mean, you told me that you weren’t feeling well, so I just assumed that was the explanation.

Luna: Yeah, I definitely did not feel well the next day.

Rj: I mean, you said you were just tired at the wedding and you went home early.

Luna: I couldn’T… I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me. I mean, I’d never felt that way before in my entire life.

Rj: What way?

Luna: Like– like not just tired, but also, like, woozy. Kind of like being drunk, but on a whole different level.

Rj: I mean, you couldn’t have been drunk, though. You had two or three glasses, small glasses of champagne. It couldn’t have been that.

Luna: Yeah, I barely drank.

Rj: I mean, you didn’t have much to eat before. It could have been that.

Luna: That’s true, but, um, that’s not the reason why I felt the way that I did.

Rj: So, you know the reason? You know what happened to you?

Luna: I do now.

Rj: Okay.

Luna: Um… my mother happened. My mother and her mints.

Steffy: Ten toes?

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: What does that even mean? Is that something that deacon saw? Like, was he having hallucinations? Was he on something? This is crazy.

Finn: I don’t know. Like, after sheila’s memorial, deacon wanted to go with her to the crematorium.

Steffy: Oh, that’s weird.

Finn: Yeah, I know. I guess he just– he didn’t want her to be alone.

Steffy: Okay, faithful to the end.

Finn: Truly. So, but he went and watched the whole process, but that’s when it happened.

Steffy: What happened?

Finn: At some point, you know, when the body was being pushed in, the sheet slipped off a little bit. And, like, this can’t be true, so you don’t need to worry, but what deacon thinks he saw, just as the door closed, he noticed her feet. And if it was sheila, there should have been nine toes, right?

Steffy: Right.

Finn: Well, according to deacon, the body that was cremated had ten.

Deacon: Ridge was right. I’m going crazy. Rest in peace, beautiful girl. I saw you. I saw you with my own eyes. There’s no doubt about it. Then how could it…

[ Mechanical whirring ]

[ Fire roaring ] Ten toes. I saw them. Maybe I’m not going crazy. Maybe that wasn’t you. And if that wasn’t you, then maybe you’re out there. Maybe you need my help. It was one thing when my mom got alzheimer’s,

Carter: So luna, she kisses rj good night, says her goodbyes and ends up at your place? And when you get home, I’m assuming she’s still there, and that’S… that’s when you two… zende, look at me. What happened? Tell me.

Rj: Your mother’s mints? What…

Luna: Um, my mom takes these special mints to help soothe her anxiety. Or at least, she did. She claims that she doesn’t take them anymore, but…

Rj: They’re special and, like, they have drugs in them? For…

Luna: Exactly.

Rj: Okay.

Luna: And she kept these special mints in this tin. Um, it was a tin that looked enough like the tin that I put my mints in. My regular, everyday breath mints.

Rj: Oh, no.

Luna: And somehow, I still don’t know when or where, but on the day of the wedding, her tin ended up in my bag.

Rj: Oh, my god.

Luna: And… I don’t know if you remember, but that night I was feeling a little self-conscious about my breath, so I took quite a few.

Rj: You did. Oh, that– well, that explains why you were so tired and you wanted to go home early. You accidentally took drugs?

Luna: Yeah, and it’s something that I’ll regret for the rest of my life. I mean, I wish I never took any of my mom’s damn mints. Everything would be so different.

Rj: Diff– different how? Luna, did something happen after the party because you took those mints?

Luna: I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.

Steffy: Deacon’s losing it. Because there is no way that could happen. Like, no– wait, what did you say? You said her sheet slipped off?

Finn: Yeah, as the body was moving towards the flames, I guess there was some sort of little bump and the box that she was in dropped a little bit.

Steffy: And that’s when the sheet fell.

Finn: And revealed her feet.

Steffy: All ten toes.

Finn: He seemed pretty sure.

Steffy: Well, he’s wrong. Finn, you have to agree with me, right?

Finn: I’m just telling you what he told me, but he was right there. He watched her body going.

Steffy: I don’t care what deacon thinks. That was sheila.

Deacon: Let’s see what was going on, sheila. Check your emails. Work. Work. Pilates. Work. Spam. Let’s check your text messages. Who’s this? “How’d you get this number?” “Doesn’t matter.” “I’m gonna find you.” “Stay away from me, sugar!”

Finn: He’s pretty sure that he saw ten toes.

Steffy: Oh, god.

Finn: And that’s why he thinks that sheila may still be alive and that she could still be out there.

Deacon: Sugar… who the hell is sugar?

Announcer: Here’s a look ahead.

Lauren: I never wanna hear her name again.

Finn: Deacon’s in a bad place.

Steffy: He needs to stop this.

Rj: My cousin, you two…

Luna: I’m sorry! Rj, please.

Zende: Blame me. Don’t blame her.

Rj: I do blame you!

Great for work. Although am I ever looking forward to getting out of here. I do appreciate how hard this must be, but The treatment is essential to your recovery plan, as you know.

I know, I do know that I am literally radioactive. Mm hmm. And, uh, Sarah, aren’t, aren’t you worried? I, I, I mean, uh, whatever I got inside of me is definitely dangerous to babies, no? Last thing I would want is to hurt your little one. I really, really appreciate your concern, but I am taking all the necessary precautions.

And, as you progress through your treatment, the amount of radiation emitted decreases significantly. So now, how are you feeling? Oh. Not bad, honestly. Aside from a bit of nausea. Hmm, maybe more than a bit. Alright, we can get you something for that, that is no problem. Done. Pharmacy will have that up to you ASAP.

Anything else? No, nothing, nothing that I can think of. Except, except to say, Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’m so very grateful for all the wonderful care that I’m getting here and especially from you. It’s my pleasure, Paulina. I want you to take this time to rest and hydrate. Oh, and uh, Gabe gave me this to give to you.

Now you just remember if you need anything, I am a call button away. Okay.

Maggie, I cannot thank you enough for opening your home to me. You have saved me in ways nobody ever has. But it would seem my time here is truly done. Constantine, no. That can’t be. I don’t want you to leave. Well, the truth is, leaving you will be very hard for me. Don’t, Constantine. There must be another way.

Well, perhaps there is. What a

day this has been. I am in a bad mood. And so I’m elixir of the gods.

This place is chaos 24 7. Too many guests. Too much drama.

Too many babies yowling. Children stand beating up down the staircase.

And cookie crumbs and everything.

Well, now it’s time for me to relax with a really good book. Ow!

Okay. Where’s the oxygen? Come on, there’s nothing to it. When you said that we were going to go for a hike, I thought you meant a brisk walk around the property. I didn’t think you meant the Oregon Trail. Yeah, but I wanted us to get the full experience. You know, I mean, we were so close to that amazing park.

I mean, I couldn’t believe how stunning that overlook was. Yeah, it was amazing. But nothing is as stunningly beautiful as my wife. I’m sorry, your what? Oh, my, uh, my wife. One, one more time. My wife.

Our favorite, Italian wine. Let me guess.

This is, uh, Castello di Monsanto Chianti. Wow. I am impressed that you remembered. Yeah, and I remember where we discovered it. Mm. Cafe Torino, right? Yeah. Everyone there, they were so friendly. Signore, Signore. Benvenuti. We were there for like seven hours just eating and drinking and talking. Ah, and eating. Uh huh, yes.

Yeah, I’m still working that off. I think we went through two bottles of wine that night. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, I can still smell that bread. Wait, wait, I think I actually do smell that bread. Johnny, you did not. You didn’t think that I wouldn’t have our favorite dinner set up for tonight, did you? Oh, stop! And, that sauce.

You made that sauce? Mm hmm, salsa bolsa nina. I, uh, cooked it at the house, brought it up here with us. It’s heating up as we speak. You’re the best. No, I am married to the best. To our honeymoon. To our honeymoon.

Well, thank you for showing my card to our favorite patient. You are very, very welcome. You can visit her virtually. You’re not going to throw me into her room with a hazmat suit? It’s against hospital policy, unfortunately. Ah, I figured that. Let’s go get you set up. Alright. So How is she doing? I mean, how is she really doing?

Paulina tends to put on a brave face. Yeah, I’m very aware of her tenaciousness, but She’s doing really great. She is. We’re gonna scan her, um, in a few days and see what her radiation levels are. And if those levels are good, then she can leave isolation. So, right now, her only job is to rest and stay comfortable.

God forbid she stop working. But, that’s what makes her the best. Yes. Well, still, I do hope she takes this time for herself. You know, she lets her body recuperate after the recent trauma and surgeries. But I also know Paulina. So do I. Well, I think if anyone can break through, you’re the man for the job.

Let’s see what I can do. I’m so sorry. Thomas! Why were you running in the house like that? Were you on your way to play a soccer match in the atrium? I wouldn’t doubt it. Oh, no, I’m, I’m sorry, Julie. We were, uh, we were playing hide and go seek. Ah. Um, it’s a huge house, so if you, uh, if you play right, you can stay hidden for quite a while.

I should have tried that. Yeah, we’re, uh, a bit on top of each other here, aren’t we? It’s the weather, too. That’s right, Thomas. You know, nobody saw that cold front coming through, but it’s a brave new world. Rotten weather everywhere. To think I dreamed of going outside the house for just a few hours today.

We were going to try to get to the playground to burn off some energy, but best laid plans, right, buddy? Did you apologize to Julie? I’m sorry. Darling, it’s just wine under the drawbridge. I’m just glad it was white. Not red. I can get you a refill if you want. No, I don’t think so.

Constantine, how can I help? Well, it is difficult to get a work visa because of the quotas. Add to that the fact that I have no specialized skills or no family here to sponsor me. Joining the U. S. Army is obviously out of the question. So the only other option I can think of is, well, I have brought it up before, but I am reluctant to even mention it, the possibility of it.

I assume you’re talking about marriage. I am. Yes. Well, won’t that send up a lot of red flags? I mean, I mean, wouldn’t they see right through that? Perhaps you are right, yes. On the other hand, hmm, I have access to the most brilliant and ferocious lawyers in the country. Some Hmm. Let me, uh, let me get them to look into this.

As always, you are far too gracious, Maggie, and generous. We can get through this, Constantine. We’ll find, we’ll find a way to extend that visa. Oh, there they are. Sleeping beauty. And the beast. My little sweetheart. Oh my goodness. Oh, Xander, I can’t tell you how happy I was when I spoke to Sarah. She told you the good news.

Yeah. And what good news is that I have been fully exonerated of the attempted murder of Harris Michaels health. Charges against me have been dropped. Hey, congratulations. You are a very lucky man. Luck had nothing to do with it. I was innocent. The truth was on my side. Yeah, and we knew that for sure.

Although maybe luck is with me today. Meaning? Did I just hear that you’re having visa trouble, Constantine? Do you need a ride to the airport?

Well, I guess somebody owed dues to the Clean Plate Club. And we still have dessert. I like spoiling you. Do you remember that panforte we had after we got married the first time? Oh, it was divine. That entire trip was molto bene. Perfecto. You know what I think we should do? I think we should stop talking about how much we love Italy.

And just go back to Italy. Yeah, we’ll, we’ll get there, okay? But right now, I’m just really loving being here. In this cabin. With my handsome, thoughtful, sexy husband.

How about we skip dessert? I see where you’re going with this. And I like where you’re going with this. But first. I want to show you something that I think you’re going to get a major kick out of. Okay. Okay. Okay. I’ll be right back. Okay. It’s

really getting cold out there. Okay. Here we are. Well, what are we, jousting? Ha ha, very funny. No, we’re going to make some s’mores. Yeah, now who’s being funny? No, I don’t think so.

All right, here you go. All right, thank you. for setting this up. Yes, I’m about to start my break, so just take all the time you need. You sure? I am. I’ll let you get to it. Holler if you need anything. Oh,

oh, one sec. I’m just finishing up a text. You know, the work day ended hours ago, Paulina. Well, maybe so. That may be so. But I have an unholy backlog of e mails, reports, and spreadsheets to go through. Oh, oh. Plus, my favorite council person has to stop pestering me about that funding bill. Tell McPherson to be nice.

He’ll cut that bill in half, and if that doesn’t work, call JP. Abraham! I’ve got this. I can do this job no matter what’s going on with me. And don’t you forget it.

Won’t it be lovely when we can just go home again? But for now, I’ll settle for a full glass of wine and a good book. And now we’ll be mindful with, uh, with the hiding. I’m sorry again. Thank you. Good night.

Start counting! Okay, only if you promise to, uh, slow down in the hallways. Fine. And, stay out of the bedrooms. Alright, those are private areas, we have to respect that. Okay, whatever! No, start counting, please! No, no, no, no, whatever. One. Two. Three. Four. Five. Six. 16. 17. 27. I was just telling Constantine, I have my lawyers looking into extending his visa.

Why? Constantine has come to enjoy this country. And I want to make sure that he doesn’t feel like he’s being rushed to leave. He should be able to choose when the right time is for him to go back to Greece. The right time for him. Thank you, Maggie. Your generosity is boundless. I don’t know how I will ever be able to repay you.

Maybe a couple million ways. Sander? He could at least consider when he might have won his welcome and exit graciously. You make an excellent point. But the beauty of this country, as I see it, is home is wherever I may lay my head. In theory. Let’s be honest, Constantine. We all know that you can’t go home because certain factions of a certain criminal syndicate in Greece have made it very clear that you can never go back.

Look, nobody is saying there won’t be logistical issues. Logistically, that’s quite the euphemism, Maggie. Okay, look. I know when the time is right, I have no doubt that Constantine will be able to return to his homeland. I thank you very much. Those words mean the world to me, Maggie. I so look forward to going back to my village and I look forward somehow, someday, to be able to take you back to that beautiful corner of the world.

Don’t think Maggie’s going to have much time for traveling, though. Sorry, I was mentioning the You’re considering maybe returning to work at Titan? Yes, I am. I was considering it, yes. Titan would be lucky to have you. I could not agree more. So, um, now that, uh, your nightmare is over And behind you, what’s next for you, Xander?

Have you given any thought to returning to Titan yourself? Oh, yeah, I gave it some thought, but I don’t know, I think I’m gonna have my hands full at the Spectator. Hoping to use my position there as a platform to better serve the public’s best interests. You know, keep the citizens of our fair town informed of all the latest news.

Oh, she’s teasing. Oh, baby, baby. Take care, sweetheart. Perhaps a little whiskey on the gums? Yeah, I don’t think so. Um, you know what? I remember the last time that Sarah was here. She left a TV ring in the freezer. I’m gonna go get it.

You certainly has a set of lungs, or a dozen chains. Victoria! Soprano, echoing through the corridors. Uh huh. Kidding tones. Right. Maggie. You know I love you. Uh huh. And I’m eternally grateful for your hospitality, but I gotta get out of this place, if only for one night. Is everything okay? Everything’s wonderful.

I love everybody. Everybody loves me. But I cannot continue to be Miss Congeniality unless I have a break from this. Okay, I understand your feelings. More than you know. Ha! I love family life. I love the family. I just, I’m pining to be in my own house. Do I sound like an ungrateful grumpy old grouch? No, of course not.

You just sound human. So go read, watch a movie, sleep in. Thank you. Thank you. Do me a great favor. Keep an eye on Doug. He’s already gone to bed for the night. Of course. Okay. I’ll, I’ll, I’ll write him a note and say I’ll be by sometime tomorrow. Afternoon ish, and I’ll just go up and pack a bag. Well, spread your wings and fly, my dear friend.

I don’t even know where I’m going. Who cares? But I’m going, and I’m gonna have a lovely time. Paulina, my love, you can do anything you put your mind to, but I want you to rest and get back to full strength. So I just sit on my hands, even after getting a message that EJ has called a press conference for tomorrow without any notice to my office.

Which, which reminds me, I have to call him. You mind if I ping you back in a few minutes? Okay. No problem. Text me when you get back online. Love you. Love you too.

Paulina Price for EJ? No, I’m afraid it can’t. Could you, uh, put him on the phone now? Yes, I realize what time it is. Yes. But I am the mayor and your boss needs to remember that. I am responsible to the people of Salem and he reports to me on their behalf. Yes, please convey that and my expectation of him returning this call immediately.

We need to discuss some, some serious, serious, serious several pending issues. Starting with that press conference that he’s planning. I will be awaiting his call.

What’s wrong with s’mores? Okay, you have the other charred goodness of the marshmallow. You have the chocolate, the flaky crisp graham cracker. It’s a classic dessert. It’s American. It’s an American staple. Yeah, I agree. My problem isn’t with the dessert. It’s with those sticks. I found these when I was putting supplies away and I found the marshmallows.

Johnny, those sticks are dirty. Oh, come on. We’re, we’re in the woods surrounded by nature. These sticks, these sticks were foraged. Okay, bequeathed to us by mother nature herself. Well, agree to disagree. Fine.

All right, now please accept this confectionary treat and get to roasting. These marshmallows are not going to roast themselves. Okay, well, happy wife. Happy life.

And will you look at that? Not only is she settled, she’s actually smiling at me, aren’t you, darling? I found the ring. Thank you, Maggie. But as you can hear, no more screaming. Our little angel has decided all is well, nothing to complain about anymore. Well, that’s good. But I’m gonna give you this anyway in case our little angel decides that all is not well.

Thank you, Meg. Okay. Uh, hi. Hey! Anybody seen Thomas? Kid’s like an Olympic level hide and seek talent. No, I haven’t seen him, Meg. Okay, well then, uh, I continue the hunt. Oh, hey, before you go, um, can we chat? This is work stuff. Uh, yeah, yeah, gotta make it quick though. I don’t want the kid hiding in a closet or something too long.

Totally understand. Just be a couple minutes. Well, this is the perfect time for us to take an evening stroll, shall we? We’ll let the, uh, boys talk shop. Yes, will you excuse us?

Hi mama. Janelle, oh my sweet baby girl. Are you good? Oh, much better now that I’m seeing your beautiful face. Oh, sight for sore eyes. How’s the radiation going? Ah, honestly, well, never had so much fun. Stop. Oh, feeling like I’m 18 years old again. Oh, did I say 18? I meant 118. Yeah, well, don’t make me start worrying about you.

I was joking. I am fine. How’s the nausea? Oh, nausea I can handle. It’s the isolation that’s got me hanging off the chandelier. Shout out to Syl! Right. Oh, but enough about me. How are you? Well, the woods are beautiful. And, um, it’s really peaceful here. And it’s been great. Just, you know, decompressing. I’m fine.

Well, you needed a sweetheart. It’s been a crazy couple of months. Ah, but, now go, go, get back to honeymooning with that handsome husband of yours. Okay, Johnny sends his love, and I do too. Send mine back. And please, please, please, let us know if you need anything. Oh, I will. Take care, darling. Bye bye.

What? What the? That isn’t going to work for me at all. This stinks.

No, can’t give up. Gotta win this.

Oh, so cool. So I take it you’re, uh, you’re not a very big fan of Constantine.

Kind of an understatement. I thought he was, uh, redeeming himself. He’s been pretty good with the kids since we moved in. Yeah, so I’ve been told. Hey, uh, any progress on the repairs at the house? You change the subject very fast. Um, yeah, repairs are, uh, are going well. So what’s up? You wanted to talk about work?

I did, yeah. Well, I just wanted to give you a heads up that now that I’m a free man, I plan on being more present at the Spectator. That’s great. Especially because we’re poised to break some pretty big stories this cycle. Fantastic. How’s, uh, Everett been doing? Um, you know, he’s a, uh, he’s a strong investigator.

He’s got great instincts, but he has been distracted with some personal stuff lately. So, uh, yeah, I don’t, I don’t want to get into it. Uh, anyway, I could really use the help. Well, I have a story for you. Shoot. The way I see it, the cops might not be too interested in finding out who framed you, I certainly am.

Sounds like a great series for the paper. You want to run with it? Damn right I want to run with it. I want to fly with it. But, uh, about your brother’s arrest, I’m surprised that we didn’t have a bit more coverage of that. I mean, I thought you’d have had the inside scoop, no? Right. Well, look, I’m not going to make excuses for my, uh, for my brother, but I think he made some choices based on some threats that were made towards Gabby, and, uh, and I suspect that you or I would probably do something unexpected in the name of love.

Be that as it may, I don’t know, I thought maybe with you having one brother on one side of justice and one on the other, that you could at least provide a little bit more insight. Yeah, no. Uh, uh, no. I made a conscious effort to stay out of my family’s business for my mental health and my children’s safety.

Uh, but hey, if you want to get your hands dirty, go nuts. You know, my other brother, the uh, inimitable EJ, he uh, he’s got a press conference that he’s holding tomorrow. What about? I don’t know, I tried to figure out the topic, but I’m gonna be there though. Well, maybe I’ll join you. Can you text me the details?

I will. Great. Well, I should probably get this one home. Great, uh, and I should probably, uh, wrap up this game of hide and seek. Get the kids to bed. Uh, we’ll talk tomorrow? Less. Great. And hey, Chad, good luck finding Thomas. I’m gonna need it. Dad? This place. Your home, it truly is magical. Each day I’m allowed to remain, I understand why Victor settled here.

How Salem inspired him to create a new life for himself and his family. Even though I wasn’t born here, I consider Salem my home. I always will. It seems to have that effect on people, yes? Yes. Something about this city, it feels right for me, Maggie. Really? After everything that’s happened? Are you sure about that?

Oh. There you are. Abraham, what is going on? I just got a call from McPherson. I was planning on telling you about that. Look, maybe I overstepped, but I just want you to focus on healing. And I thank you. You do? Yes, I do. Did you overstep? You damn right you did. And I’m glad you did.

With everything going on, my, my mind’s not operating the way I’d like it to. It feels foggy, in the clouds. Doctor said it, Would be a possible side effect. But I don’t like it. What I even like even less is being separated from you, especially after all the time you lost. A couple more nights apart mean we get many more nights together.

I know, I know. Hey, at least you’re all cozy and warm in your room. We might get snow tonight. Snow? In the middle of April? Woo! Well, forecast is for possible flurries. But the real storm is skipping us and heading south. Should be over Smith Island in a few hours. Wait, Smith Island? That’s where the Horton cabin is.

Well, should we call Chanel and Johnny? Maybe they should come home. No, it wouldn’t make any sense to drive anywhere in this weather. Safest place for them to be right now is cuddled up in front of the fire enjoying their honeymoon.

Hey, everything okay? Yeah, yeah. You know, I’m just worried about mama. I know she’s hating the isolation. Yeah, but this is the last of your treatment, right? Yeah, if things go as planned, then yes. But, you know, I also worry about her job. Being the mayor is so stressful and Yeah, well, I think your mom is doing an incredible job.

And plus, I think she kind of thrives under pressure, you know? And she’s got all the support from Abe, from you, from me. Your mom. Is going to be fine. Okay. And you know who else is doing an incredible job? Who? You. At knowing exactly what I need to hear. And giving the best hugs. Come here. Oh

And I um I need you to water the plants in the kitchen window tomorrow, okay? Just put them in the, um In the sink. Run the water for two minutes, no more, no less. Well, it’s just that Chanel is very particular in her plant care, and with her gone, I just I will take care of the plants. I will take care of everything.

Now you go and get some sleep, okay? Right, better get all rested for another day of isolation tomorrow. Oh, can’t wait. I’ll download some magazines for you to read. Well, if it’s a distraction, send it my way. And Abraham, thank you for being my person. And for taking such good care of me. I love you. To the stars and back.

Always. Sleep well, my dear.

I’m so sorry, Julie. We weren’t expecting you. So it seems. Yeah, uh, what are you doing here? This is the Horton Cabin. But Sarah, she told us that we could use it. This is your honeymoon. Oh my God. Oh, I’m so sorry. I’m sorry, John. I’m sorry, Chanel. No, no, no, no, no. It’s fine. It’s just, uh It’s just unexpected.

That’s all. Exactly. Lord, is there no place on Earth where I’m not underfoot? Okay, I’m leaving. I’m leaving now. No, wait. Julie, you can’t leave now. Why not? I’ll go back where I came from. It’ll work. No, no, no. I think he means the snow. It’s really picking up. Yeah, and besides, it’s pitch black out there.

There’s no street lights on the island. You know that. Yeah, well, I noticed it was challenging, that last mile of driving. Yeah, no, just please stay. We’d be worried sick about you out there. There’s only one bedroom. Hey, well, after that drive, you need it. You take it. Oh, on your honeymoon? That’s out of the question.

Don’t worry about it. Okay, look, we’ll, we’ll sleep on the couch. It’s very comfortable. I say you’ve tested it. So, you’ll stay then? All right. I admit I don’t want to drive in the snow and the dark. I’ll stay out of your way. I’ll, I’ll lock the bedroom door. I’ll put on my eye mask. I’ll even put in my earplugs.


was the visit with mom? Well, we Victoria was teething like crazy, but apart from that, it was fine. Was Constantine there? Yes.

And And as you know I just don’t feel right when that guy’s around and, I don’t know, something was even more off than usual. I could just sense it. Maybe you’re overthinking it. Maybe. And if it were just you and me, I’d grit my teeth and barrel through, but I do not like Our daughter being in that man’s presence.

And now, every time your mother takes care of her, he’s gonna be in the picture.

Your feelings are valid. And, nothing has happened in months. In fact, ever since mom paid off Constantine’s debts, life has been Quiet. Dare I say, even Safe. Well, I don’t equate quiet to safe, Sarah. The people Constantine owed, the Greek mafia, They don’t just go away when they’re made whole. That is not their M.

O. Not by a long shot. Constantine, though I love having you here as you know, I sometimes wonder how you tolerate being surrounded by the people who wronged you in the most devastating ways. I mean, knowing what John and Steve did at Victor’s behest. Maggie, I have come to realize that living life to the fullest means letting go of all that does not serve you.

And if my time in Salem is running short, then I would like to make the most of what time I have left.

So dance with me. What? There’s no music. When I’m with you, there is music in my heart. Whoa,

so cool. I’ve never seen one of these before. Maybe it’s an original glare! Thomas, what are you doing in here? This is Mr. Constantine room. You’re not supposed to be in here. I know, but it was an awesome place to hide. That’s not the point. Okay, how would you like it if someone was hanging out in your room?

What am I Did you touch anything in here? I didn’t. I swear. Okay. Come on, let’s go. Go brush your teeth. Don’t run in the hallway, please!

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Hi. Hi. Well,

I can see you’re still upset with me. You left these flowers I brought you in your office. I guess I’ll just find a vase to put them in. Be on my way.

I’m really sorry I disappointed you. I regret helping Ava with Weston. But like I told you before, I was scared. I was afraid I was going to lose my son. And it made me do something stupid and reckless.

I guess I’m just going to have to She’s gonna have to live with that. Wait, I need to say something. I know that you feel bad for what you did. As you should. But because I love you, I am going to forgive you for the reckless and boneheaded risk that you took breaking Clyde Weston out of prison. Oh, sweetness.

However, I need to stay mad at you. For at least today. Understand? I do. Good. Thank you for the flowers. They’re beautiful.

So kiddo, what are your plans for spring break this year? No spring break for me. A ton of school work to catch up on, so I’ll probably just hang out with some friends or something. Got it. Tate, I know that your parents have forbidden you to see Holly. Told you that, huh? Yes, they did. How do you feel about that?

Um, it sucks because I like Holly and she’s a friend of mine. They’re probably right about us being toxic for each other, so it’s probably for the best.

I am so proud of you, Holly, for telling the truth that the drugs you used on New Year’s Eve were yours. I know. That couldn’t have been easy. Why are you proud? I should have told the truth from the beginning. Yes, but I know you had your reasons for not doing that. That you were worried about your mom.

Yeah, I was. But still, I lied, Grandma, and I got Tate in terrible trouble. Yeah, you did. Hey, do you have any more tea? Oh, and those lemon berries you usually bake? Yeah. Coming right up. And Holly, listen, um, when I get back, I’d like to continue our discussion. Okay? Okay.

SOS meeting, whatever. I’ve gotta get out of here


Hi. Hi.

I’m kind of in a rush, so. Steph, uh, wait.

I just want to say, I’m so sorry. About everything. I know. This has been hard on you in so many ways. Including how it’s hurt your friendship with Jada. I was really worried when you two stormed out of the spectator office. Actually, Jada and I talked through some things. That’s none of your concern.

However, there is something that I’m curious about. Okay. Do you still have feelings for her? For Jada? What?

Uh, no. No.

How could I have feelings for someone I, I don’t even know? Well, if that’s true, then why would you want to stay married to her? Why won’t you sign the divorce papers?

Ah, well, this is a surprise. What’s up? Uh, nothing. I just, um, I needed to see you. What for? Um, this.

Stands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Look, I, I, I’m not going to sign divorce papers as a man who I, I, I do not even know who he is. But you do know who he is. It’s you. You were ID’d as Robert Stein.

Don’t call me that. Don’t you ever call me that again.

Mmm. You remember that time? A while back when we snuck onto that riverboat on the Mississippi. You were wearing that pretty yellow dress. Your hair was up. Oh my God, you look so beautiful. Every pair of eyes on that boat was just drawn to you. You know, I appreciate you trying to butter me up. But you are not out of the doghouse yet, okay?

I’ll let you know when you are. Uh, okay. Mm hmm. Well, since I’m still in the doghouse, I guess there’s something else I want to get off my chest. And it doesn’t have anything to do with Ava or Weston. What? This happened a long time ago, before us. When I was working for Victor. Okay, I’m listening.

On Victor’s orders, I escorted John to Greece. He was the pawn then and I was his handler. It was my job to protect him and see him through a mission. The mission was to send a message to a man. A man named Constantine. What? Yeah. The same Constantine who recently turned up here in Salem.

Anyway, While we were on the mission, Something terrible happened. Constantine’s daughter, Katharina, Was shot and killed. Possibly by John.

For years, I, I tried to bury it, put it out of my mind, pretend it didn’t happen.

And all this time I did everything I could to protect John from knowing about it. And recently, when he found out he was ready to fall on his sword. And just give himself up, fly to Greece, turn himself in, and possibly spend the rest of his life in a foreign prison.

The thing is, because I was spending so much energy and time protecting John, I forgot to deal with my own feelings about it.

My own guilt. And shame. I think it’s about time I did.

Tate. I’m glad you understand your parents decision that you shouldn’t see Holly. I know it’s gotta be difficult because you’re, you’re fond of her and she’s, and she’s also fond of you. Um, excuse me. Is everything alright? Yeah, uh, It’s my friend Aaron. He’s helping me study for this chem test that we’ll be taking after spring break.

Do you mind if I meet up with him? No, not at all. School comes first. Go study with your buddy. Before I go, everyone’s water’s looking a little low. Let me get a pitcher from the back. Oh, that’d be great. Hey, listen, while you’re back there, could you grab me a hot sauce, please?

You sure about that? Because I distinctly remember somebody begging, pleading, for a glass of milk the last time they used that stuff. No, I wouldn’t call it begging. I just happen to like a little bit of, you know, milk with my, with my hot sauce. I see. Ah, well, who am I to judge?

It’s nice to see you smile. I’m working on a doc. Makes me happy. Well, you’ve been helping me a lot, honey, as always. But you know what? The talk I had with Harris gave me some perspective. And I’m gonna, I’m gonna try to take his advice on how to deal with that. Self forgiveness. I’m going to try to remind myself.

And this is the hard part that I was a victim too. And I choose not to be one anymore. And I, I kind of figured if Constantine was willing to forgive me. Maybe I can try doing the same thing. So I’m trying, Doc. I’m, I’m really trying.

My Katarina. Not a day goes by my heart does not ache for you. Your beautiful life cut short so, so cruelly.

And though I pretended otherwise,

I will never forgive your murderer.

Hands where I can see them. I need you to see something, and tell me what it means, and I will go away.


Are you okay? John?

Who’s John?

If you are not John, then are you the Pong?

I’ve been called that, yes.

My God! I made it! Finally, after all these years. And found you, the one who killed, and I promise you, my precious daughter,

your death will be a,

well, the lemon bars and. Your English breakfast tea. It’s your favorite, right? Yes, it is. Thank you. You’re welcome. Oh, I hope I am not interrupting. Oh, no, not at all. Konstantin, this is my granddaughter, Holly. Holly, this is Mr. Meliones. Holly, I’ve heard so much about you. It’s a pleasure to meet you. Most of it fat, I’m sure.

Oh, no, no. Only that you had a difficult time, and I am so very happy, as your grandmother is, obviously, that you are better now. Thank you. And I must say, you remind me of my daughter, Katharina. She was around your age when she died. Oh my God, I’m so sorry. Constantine is, uh, an old friend of Grandpa Victor’s.

This ting, from Greece. Oh, cool. Uh, well, I really should be heading out now. But you haven’t had your tea or the lemon bars. Yeah, I know, but Mom’s expecting me. Okay, I understand. Sorry. Well, it was nice meeting you. Likewise. Bye, Grandma. It’s my pleasure, darling. Thank you for having me. Listen, you’re gonna go straight home, yes?

Your mom said you needed to promise me. Of course. I’m going home. I love you. I love you too. Bye. It’s terrible. I’m so sorry. But maybe now that it’s out in the open, everybody that was involved in what happened with Grease can let it just, you know, be in the past.

I’m not sure that we can. Why do you say that? Because Constantine’s forgiveness is being all understanding. Letting go of his anger. You don’t think it’s genuine? No, I don’t. I don’t believe it. I mean, his daughter was murdered. His only child. And he’s been grieving. He’s been grieving her. Ever since she died, and he’s been hell bent on avenging her death.

So for him to do a 180 all of a sudden, I’m just not buying it. And as for his devotion to Maggie, I thought from the moment he arrived in Salem that he was scamming her. And I still believe that. So you better believe I will be keeping my eye on him.

Sorry. Didn’t mean to offend you. Everett?

No. No, uh, I’m the one who should be sorry. I, uh, I’ve been really stressed, you know, um, Beyond stressed about, about all of this, uh, It’s Crazy making stuff. As I’m sure you’d agree,

I’m trying really hard to figure this out. In fact, I’m on my way to go see Dr. Evans right now for another Another session. That’s good. Hope you get some answers. Some peace of mind.

Sorry about everything.

Have I told you lately how much you mean to me? I always like to hear it. How lucky I am to have someone. It was so good to me.

Who I can count on.

Who doesn’t judge.

Who won’t abandon me. Even when I’m in trouble. Why,

why, why you say it like that? Are you in trouble?

I need, I need you to answer me. Are you, are you in trouble? No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Look, I, I was just, I was, I was just getting a little emotional because I just, I never had someone who’s been so kind to me. You know, it’s, um, caring, and

You know, the only trouble I’m in right now is, I told, uh, Wendy and Chip that I’d be moving out. And I don’t have a place to live. Um, Why don’t you, why don’t you stay here with me? Really? Yeah. Harris, I wasn’t fishing for you. No need to explain. No, as long as you’re cool with being roommates. Roommates?

With benefits? Definitely. Tate, where are you?

I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I didn’t think that that was gonna Scare me? Well, it did, you dork. But hi, um, I’m really glad to see you. Good to see you. Oh, did you turn your phone tracker off? I did, yeah. Good. You know, the only good thing about my mom taking my phone away is she can’t track me. So she has no clue where I’m at.

That is one good thing. How’s the burner working for you? I know the reception can be a bit iffy. No, it’s perfect. Decent reception for sure. But I’m just grateful you could score me a phone at all. We’re good here. And I know my mom and dad are at a meeting. And my mom and EJ are out to dinner on the other side of the park.

Okay. Isn’t it Is it so dumb that our parents are forbidding us from seeing each other? Yeah. It’s like It’s like if Romeo and Juliet had really annoying, overprotective parents. Actually, they kind of did. Yeah, you’re right. Maybe even more annoying than ours, if that’s possible. Well, me and theirs probably wore ruffled poet shirts.

Yeah, I don’t think ours would go for that. No, probably not. Do you think that I would make a good Romeo? I suppose you’re cute enough. Wow, you suppose that I’m cute enough? Okay, fine, fine. Just cute enough? Fine, you’re off the charts cute. Um, and hey, I know this might sound like weird to say, but are parents not wanting us to be together?

It only makes me want to be with you more. Same.

Well, um, I am going for some much needed girl time with Stephanie. See you later tonight? I’ll be here. Okay.

Hi, Kayla. Hello, John. I have something for you. Yeah? What’s that? What was that for? I think you know.

You told her? I did. Would you like a beer? Maybe an ice pack? You can beer me. Okay. Full transparency. I not only told her about Weston’s prison break. I told her about Constantine and Katharina. I just couldn’t keep those secrets anymore. It’s eating me up. Now I feel, I feel relieved. Like a weight’s been lifted off me.

Well, I know that feeling, pal. All too well. Everett. Hi. Hi. Come in. Have a seat. Thank you.

I’m very glad that you’re here. I’m very glad that you’ve committed to learning more about your past.

How are you feeling today?

Honestly, Dr. Evans, um,

I’m struggling. Wishing I were. Anyone but me.

I cannot believe you got my favorite donuts in the whole wide world. I did. Took a little detour to Sweet Bits after bailing on my grandparents at the pub. You know, when they asked me my order, I completely forgot, so I just told them it was the weird shaped one with the chocolate drizzle. Mochi delight.

There you go. Thank you.

It’s, uh, a bit chillier than I thought it’d be, I don’t know. Cheers.

My hero.

Holly is a delightful young lady. Yes, she is. I thank God every day that she’s come back to us. Of course, you do. I don’t think I could have handled another loss, but you know, Holly, when I’m around her, I feel like. I feel like a part of my, my son, Daniel, is still with me. Oh, my children and my grandchildren.

They are the lights of my life.

Oh, Constantina, I’m so sorry.

Um, Let me get this straight. So, Everett is still married to Jada, as Bobby Stein. Someone he doesn’t even remember being. Yeah. I actually ran into him in the square earlier. And he said that he had another session with Marlena lined up. Oh. And um, Well, I hope that he makes some progress figuring out who he is, who he was.

What? Uh, well, you know, nothing really. I mean, I just, I remember you bringing him into the hospital a while back for an examination. It was clear that he had significant trauma to his head, but There was no real proof it had anything to do with memory loss. I remember that too, obviously. Yeah. So, I, um, asked Marlena if maybe she thought he was faking it.

What? I didn’t know that. What did she say? Well, she didn’t really have a clear answer. But she didn’t rule out the possibility. Everett, if you don’t have any memory of being married to Jada, and you, you say you have no feelings for her, and, and you tell me that you love Stephanie,

why don’t you sign the divorce papers?

I just,

I can’t sign as, as someone else. I am not Robert Stein. It would be forgery to sign as him.

I see. But, that’s, that’s not the only reason that I, I wanted to see you here. Today, um, I wasn’t completely honest with you about what I saw. During hypnosis.

What did you see? I saw myself. Staring back at me.

I really need to know what it means.

God, the air is so fresh. I forgot it was even like this. Yeah, I know. We both were stuck inside for way too long. Aside from that, it’s just, it’s really nice to be here, together. Yeah, it really is. Are

you sure about this? It would be great to have your company.

You know, it’s gonna be much safer. Your trip and Wendy. Me not being there.

You know, I still feel so terrible. About all the trouble that I put them through. Putting their lives at risk. No, no, no, but we can’t. You can’t stare in the rearview too long. There’s a big, beautiful road ahead. I know. It’s just that with, you know, Clyde still being out there on the loose, it’s just You know, who knows what goes through his crazy head and he’s gonna come back again or You know, speaking of which,

you got any new leads on Clyde or Officer Gordon? Unfortunately, the trail has, uh, gone completely cold. I mean, they, they know what they’re doing. I suspect they’re long gone by now, if not out of the country. Paris. How I wish she was long gone. Oh, I wish he was long gone by now.

Hey, John. You’re my best friend. My partner. We’ve been through so much together.

So I’m gonna be honest with you. I think that it would help ease my mind, too. If we can get to the bottom of this thing. So will you please let me help you?

Okay. Let’s give it a shot. Good. So where do we start? Where we always do. With facts.

So, on the night that Katerina was killed, there were only three people there, and that was you, me, and Konstantin. Three that we know of. Okay. There were no videos or photos from back in that time. So how are we sure someone else wasn’t there? Well, without surveillance, I suppose we’re not. No, we’re not. If someone else was there, that person could be holding a very dark secret.

Holly! Tate! Nice to see you. Yeah, you too. How’s the physical therapy going? Really well, thanks. Yeah, Kayla, uh, Stephanie, would you guys mind not telling our parents that you ran into us? Why not? Um, because we’re not really supposed to be here with each other. Oh. Please, can you just pretend like you didn’t run into us?

Oh. Well, I won’t say anything. I guess it’s not my place to do that. Thank you. Thank you so much. Yeah, thank you.

Alright, well, enjoy your day. You too. See you later. Bye. Oh my god. That was a close one. Yes, that was. Look, I, I think it’s probably best if we just Yeah, let’s, uh, let’s call it. My mom and EJ are probably gonna be home soon anyways. Okay. Um, okay. Well, I should Yeah, I’m, I’m gonna miss well. Yeah. Oh, your sweatshirt?

Right. Yeah. Oh. Yeah, I, I I would let you keep it, but, you know, your parents might notice. Right, they definitely would. Better you take it. Um, thanks for letting me wear it though. Yeah, you’re welcome. Anytime. See you soon, I hope. Yeah, you will. Soon.

I have to say, I feel kind of bad about not telling on Holly and Tate. Me too, but, Mom, they’re young and in love. And didn’t it kind of remind you of when you and Dad first started dating? Being told to stay away from him. I admit, yes, it did. Made me think of Everett and me too, actually. Although, my parents haven’t told me to stay away from him, I’ve told myself that.

I know you have.

But mom, for some reason, I don’t want to. I think you have very conflicted feelings about him. Very.

And I know I should hate him, block his number, move on. But I,

I still feel drawn to him. And I feel bad for him, for what he’s going through. Baby girl. Well, as your mother, I always, always want to protect you. Tell you to move on. As you said, to not get hurt any further. But I am so proud of how kind and compassionate you are. Two of my favorite things about you.

Everett. Seeing your own image, staring back at yourself, well, I’m not really entirely sure what that means. But clearly you are, are struggling with leading a dual life. And I also think you’re probably struggling with feelings that you’ve got for Jada that you’re not really ready to accept at this point.

Would you be comfortable having another drink? hypnosis session and see if we can’t get to the bottom of some of these things. I’m sorry, uh, no, no more, no more hypnosis, no more, uh, digging. I don’t want to, I don’t, I, some things are better left unknown. Excuse me.

Could Victor have been there? No, he couldn’t have been. He was in Monte Carlo at the time. Because I heard that he bet and won big on a thoroughbred. Wolfgang Amadeus was the name. Hey, what about, uh, maybe one of Stefano’s men?

What about Katharina’s mother? I heard she was living there, right? She was. Yeah, I remember Constantine said that they separated a few years after the girl’s death, so She could have been in the house. Maybe she knows something or saw something. So what do you think partner? Open up a little investigation.

See if that woman’s still alive. And if she is, we can track her down. I think that’s a very good place to start.

No, no, no, no. You have nothing to apologize for Maggie. Oh, I do. It was very insensitive of me to go on about my children and my grandchildren. No, no, no, it was not. I, I delight in your delight. I love knowing that your heart is full. Wow, that’s very kind.

I am going to miss you, Maggie. Miss me? My travel visa is expiring, and I have been denied another extension. I’m afraid I’m going to have to leave Salem.

I’m under the impression you think Clyde is still around.

I don’t think. I know.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Ashley: Get out of my way!

Jack: No! I’m staying right here as long as it takes until you realize this is where you need to be right now.

[ Jack groans ] Voicemail again.

Ash: Come on, ashley. Wake up, please. We’re running out of time.

Ashley: You have to stop!

Kyle: Thank you.

Woman: Yeah.

Summer: Well, hello there.

Kyle: Summer, hey. You meeting someone?

Summer: Mm, no. Just me. Why?

Kyle: It’s a little late past your bedtime, isn’t it?

Summer: Oh, I couldn’t sleep. I’m starting to wonder if it’s a good idea or a bad idea to live upstairs from a bar.

Kyle: Hmm.

Summer: Not having a good night?

Kyle: I’m okay.

Summer: That’s not what I asked you.

[ Kyle scoffs ]

Kyle: I’m not having the best night of my life. No.

Summer: Well… would it make it better or worse if I joined you?

Ashley: Are you gonna let them get away with this? Really? You’re just gonna stand there?

Traci: Honestly, I don’t know what I’m gonna do, ashley, you’re breaking my heart. But we don’t have time for that. We’ve got to find out what’s going on with you.

Ashley: I’ll tell you what’s going on with me. I’m being held hostage in my own home. Now, I can understand this one doesn’t give a damn about me, but you’re supposed to be my sister!

Diane: Ashley, I do care what happens to you. But you are hurting these people who love you by attacking them instead of letting them in.

Ashley: Just shut up! This is abuse. Plain and simple. You say you love me, then get them to back off.

Traci: Jack, it’s too much. It’s too much. This is not what I had in mind when I called you together. It’s tearing her apart.

Jack: It’s killing me, too. What choice do we have?

Ashley: Don’t talk about me like I’m not here!

Traci: Who are you calling?

Jack: I am trying to reach sharon.

Billy: That’s good. She can tell us how to turn this thing around.

Ashley: Well, I could probably tell you that, too, but I guess what I have to say doesn’t matter.

[ Phone rings ]

Jack: Sharon, thank god.

Sharon: Jack, your message sounded urgent. What’s wrong?

Jack: Look, I know it’s late.

Sharon: Look, whatever it is, I want to help.

Jack: Well, we have a bit of a family emergency, and we could really use your expertise. Is there any chance you could come out to the house right now?

Sharon: No problem. I’m on my way.

Jack: Thank you.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Ashley: Sharon’s expertise? In what? Pouring coffee? Handing out muffins? Why would you bring in another outsider?

Jack: An outsider is exactly what we need right now. Someone with an objective opinion who can help us keep this from escalating any further than it already has.

Ashley: What have I done to you? Why are you so afraid of me? What crime have I committed? All I’m trying to do is live my own life, and it’s just thrown you into this panic!

Billy: Ashley, look, there’s something going on, okay? And I think you know it, too. And– and you’re trying really hard to deny it. I don’t know if you’re scared or you’re embarrassed, but you don’t have to be, okay? We’re your family. We love you. We’re just trying to help you.

Ashley: Don’t try to act like I’m supposed to just think this is, like, normal. When was the last time you were locked in your house, billy? When was the last time you were held against your free will?

Billy: Ashley, I’m not–

Ashley: Don’t talk to me! You’re not listening to me, I’m not going to listen to you.

Ash: We have to stop her.

Ashley: No one’s listening to me! What I say doesn’t matter. You are all so vile and so cruel, and I don’t know what I did to you to make you treat me this way.

Traci: Ashley, I wish that you could hear yourself. See what we see. Hear what we hear. I know you’re struggling. But if you would stop fighting us, we could get to the bottom of this together.

Ashley: It doesn’t matter what I say. It doesn’t matter. You are all believing something that’s not even real, and you’re just waiting for little dr. Sharon to– to show up here and tell you what you want to hear.

Jack: You promised traci you would speak to a professional. This is a way of fulfilling that promise.

Ashley: And I will, jack! I will! Someone of my own choosing, not your ex-wife, the barista!

Billy: Okay. Tomorrow, we will get you a therapist of your own choosing. I promise you that.

Jack: Yes. And our job right now is to keep you safe, to get you through tonight.

Ashley: Okay, sure. Thank you so much. And sharon’s going to help me do that. Sharon. She’s not even a practicing professional.

Traci: But she’s trained in this field, and she can share her thoughts.

Ashley: Oh, she can share her thoughts. Thoughts that matter more than mine. I don’t know who you are. You’re not my family. I will never forgive you for this betrayal. No.

Ash: Ashley, wake up!

[ Ash groans ] Please wake up! She’s freaking out. She’s acting really weird. She doesn’t sound like you, and they know it. If you don’t do something really, really soon, they’re going to send us away to one of those scary places, then I won’t be able to protect you, but it’s got to happen soon! It has to happen soon before it’s too late. Ashley!

[ Ash grunts ] Ashley!

Diane: I know this is breaking your heart, but ashley doesn’t mean what she’s saying. She’s really not herself right now.

Ash: Ashley! Wake up! Uhhh.

Jack: Don’t worry about me. I’m worried about ashley. And you.

Diane: Me? I’m fine.

[ Jack sighs ]

Jack: I don’t know what’s happening with my sister, but there’s no reason you should have to put up with all of this. In fact, if you wanted to spend the night at the club, I would understand that. Maybe it’s a good idea.

Diane: If you want me to go, I’ll go, but I’d rather stay. You and I are in this together. And I meant what I said. If ashley has more rage than she needs to vent at me, I can take it. She’s just so angry and upset. I don’t know if anything productive can come from this. She’s in such a dark place.

Jack: And we have to pull her back from that edge. And I’m not going to let her anywhere near you until she calms down. I am here to protect you. I will always keep you safe. You know that.

Diane: I know that. And I love you for it. But do you really think it’s a good idea to bring sharon into the mix, given how much rage ashley’s feeling? Those two have never exactly cared for each other.

Jack: No, they haven’T. But you’re right. Ashley isn’t herself right now. As much as she hates all of us, maybe she would listen to someone else.

Diane: Yeah, but is sharon even qualified to handle this?

Jack: I trust her. Maybe she can give us some insight as to what ashley’s going through, and we can prepare her for what is next.

Ashley: If you care at all about me, please just get me out of this place.

[ Ashley groans ]

Traci: Ash! Ashley! Ashley!

Billy: Hey, hey, hey, hey! It’s okay. Hey.

[ Ashley grunts ] It’s all right.

Summer: Well, I won’t force you to tell me why you’re not having a good night.

Kyle: Mm. I appreciate that. You won’t force me, but you will just sit there quietly until I offer.

Summer: I assume it’s the same reason I couldn’t fall asleep.

Kylee: Oh. Which is?

Summer: We still haven’t found a nanny for harrison.

Kyle: Yeah. Yeah, that– yeah, that– that search isn’t going well, is it?

Summer: No.

Kyle: We have two adults who both have full-time jobs outside the home, one very active child who needs plenty of looking after, and still no nannies waiting in the wings.

Summer: You would think with all the people we’ve met, we would find at least one person that harrison doesn’t glare at.

Kyle: Hmm, well, there is one person he didn’t hate. It’s just not someone that we’ve interviewed.

Summer: Claire.

Kyle: Eh, kid can’t stop talking about her.

Summer: Funny. Neither can I.

Kyle: Those two really clicked, which… kind of makes sense if you think about it.

Summer: Really? I didn’t see any clicking. At all. Mm.

Kyle: You didn’t? I mean, harrison really liked her. I think it was because she has this childlike excitement about everything the rest of us take for granted, like going to coffee with her mother the first time we met her.

Summer: I didn’t notice.

Kyle: Really? I mean, she was like, “oh, boy, I get to go out in public with my mother like normal people.” I think it was because our childhood was such a horror show.

Summer: Wow, you must have really been paying attention to pick up on all of that from just one meeting.

Kyle: I ran into claire and victoria again at society.

Summer: Oh. Let me guess, my sweet, innocent cousin just couldn’t help but fill you in on her tragic backstory. Life with her certifiably crazy aunt jordan.

Billy: It’s okay.

Jack: Hey. Hey. Hey.

Ashley: Get off me. Get off. I was a little bit dizzy, but now I’m fine. Can you blame me? You’ve been badgering me for hours with this so-called intervention of yours. Well, you got to me. Congratulations.

Traci: Why don’t you come and sit down with me?

Ashley: Stop hovering. You’re sucking the air out of the room. I don’t want to sit down. I want to lie down, alone, in my room. Oh, for god’s sakes. What do you think I’m gonna do? You think I’m gonna jump out the window and shimmy down the drain pipe and make a run for it? I just want some peace and quiet. And for what you’ve done to me tonight, I think it’s the least you can give me.

Ash: Ashley, please wake up! You have to wake up before it’s too late. Come on. Wake up. Wake up.

[ Ash groans ] Wake up!

[ Ash grunts, groans ] Oh! Yeah! Oh! That’s a good girl! That’s a good girl! I knew you could do that. I knew you had it in you. Come on. You know what you got to do. Please! You know what you got to do. Come on, ashley. Get up. Wake up! Please! Ashley. I knew you could do it.

[ Ashley groans ] Please!

Ashley: Oh! Oh!

Traci: Ashley. Oh, my gosh! Ashley.

Jack: Ashley, ashley, we are here for you.

Traci: Speak to us. Come on. What is it?

Jack: All of us are here for you.

Traci: Speak to us. Ashley.

Ashley: What’s happening? What’s going on? If advanced lung cancer

Jack: Ashley… you are here in our home with everyone who loves you.

Ashley: Why?

Traci: Why are you here?

Ashley: Why are you all standing around like something’s wrong with me?

Traci: Well, you got lightheaded, and you were on your way to your room to lie down, and then you fainted.

Ashley: No, I mean before that. I mean, how did I– how did I get here?

Billy: You don’t remember? What– what do you remember?

Ashley: I’m not sure, but I– I know that– that we weren’t like this.

Diane: We were talking, and things had gotten intense or– are you saying that you don’t remember any of that? We need to get her to the hospital.

Ashley: I’m not going anywhere unless you tell me what’s going on. How long have I been here? What did I miss?

Jack: Okay, we will tell you everything you want to know later. Ju– right now, just relax. Take it easy.

Ashley: How am I supposed to take it easy, jack, when you’re starting to terrify me?

Billy: I think ashley’s right. I think we just need to give her a little break so she doesn’t get overloaded. She just had another blackout.

Traci: You told them this happened to me before?

Kyle: Yes. I admit it. After all you found out about claire, I wanted to know more. So when I ran into her and victoria at society, I decided to get more info.

Summer: And?

Kyle: I really got to hand it to her. Claire laid it all out there. Everything she did, everything she went through, she holds a lot of regret and shame. But she’s doing everything she can to make amends. And be part of the newman family.

Summer: Wow. Two whole chats with the girl, and you’re already on her side.

Kyle: Her side? For what?

Summer: I– I don’t know. To– to be harrison’s nanny? Or to try to convince me to tolerate her? Which fyi, if it’s option b, you’re gonna have to get in line.

Kyle: I’m not on her side. But it sounds like someone else is.

Summer: Yeah. She has won over everyone else in the family, but I am just the cold-hearted cousin too skeptical to welcome her with open arms.

Kyle: Okay, everyone in the family is lobbying on her behalf, or… everyone in the world in general?

Summer: You know what I think is interesting?

Kyle: Hmm.

Summer: Who gets forgiven. And for what. And how long it takes. I think it says a lot. I’m actually really bored of this conversation.

Kyle: Hmm.

Summer: What should we talk about now?

Kyle: Okay, I’m gonna say one last thing about claire, and then I promise I will stop.

Summer: Go ahead.

Kyle: When I mentioned how much harrison likes her…

Summer: Yes?

Kyle: …I wasn’t pushing her to be a nanny candidate. It was just an observation.

Summer: Good. Because we both know that we have to agree on harrison’s nanny. Right? And it is never going to be her. All done talking about claire now?

Kyle: Yes. Yes, we are.

Summer: Mm.

Kyle: What would you like to talk about now? Menswear fashion week?

Summer: Well, we could talk about jabot’s summer palette.

Kyle: Hmm.

Summer: Or we could talk about the thing that you don’t want to talk about.

Kyle: And what would that be?

Summer: Whatever’s got you drinking here alone at this hour.

Kyle: Or we could talk about the weather. Did you know, it’s supposed to rain next week?

Summer: Mm. April showers bring may flowers. There, we did the weather. What’s upsetting you, kyle? Is it work? Is it family? Little bit of both?

Traci: Yes, I– I did tell the family that you’ve been having blackouts, but… you knew that already.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Jack: I’ll get that. Thank you for coming, sharon.

Sharon: Oh, no need to thank me, jack. Um, whatever’s going on, I want to help if I can.

Jack: I know therapy is not your focus right now, but any guidance you could give us, I’d be very grateful for.

Sharon: Of course.

Traci: Ashley, I didn’t call the family together to betray your confidence, or for all of us to gang up on you. I did it because it’s what we always do. When one of us is struggling, we all gather together, and we help them through it. And honestly, I thought you were trying to get me off your back because you promised you would get professional help.

Ashley: I– I was planning on it. I was, I swear to you. I– I wasn’t avoiding, I– I don’t remember. Why are you here, sharon? What, is it because of me? Who called her?

Jack: I did.

Ashley: Why, because you think I’m crazy?

Sharon: I am here as a friend, ashley. Nothing more, I promise.

Jack: And what I think, what we all think, is that you have been through so much these last few months, it’s taken something out of you, too much.

Jack: And our concern only seems to make things worse. So I thought maybe having someone more experienced, more objective, might be just the thing to help ease your emotional load.

Ashley: No, I can’t, jack. I’m just– I’m too exhausted, I have to go lay down.

Billy: I think that’s a good idea. I think ashley should go upstairs, and get a little rest.

Ash: I did it! I beat you at your own game. And I won!

Ms. Abbott: You– you have no idea what you’ve done. Auntie, you can’t put that right in the dishwasher.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Kyle: All right, it’s not a very interesting story, but you asked for it. I am alone in a bar at this hour because I left the office after a late meeting, and decided to stop in for a drink.

Summer: You’re right. That is not very interesting… or true. Kyle, I’m your ex-wife. Twice, actually. I know that you’re not usually sitting alone brooding at a bar unless something is really gnawing at you or you’re avoiding going home. So, which is it?

[ Kyle sighs ]

Kyle: You nailed it, actually. It’s both. I feel guilty even thinking this, let alone saying it.

Summer: But?

Kyle: But I am having a hard time working at jabot… as a subordinate of my mother.

Summer: Oh. I mean, fair enough. Well, I get it.

Kyle: Clearly you do not.

Summer: Yeah, no, not really, since you were the one that pushed for this in the first place.

Kyle: I was being noble and self-sacrificing. You know, “go, mom.” The way this is playing out, though, she was nowhere near ready to take on the position of co-ceo. And I was not ready to watch her blow the opportunity of a lifetime.

Summer: Well, you’ve held that position in the past. So if anybody knows what goes into it, it’s you. And this is your mom we’re talking about. So I know you were pulling for her. But if it’s your opinion that she’s in over her head, I’m sure you’re not alone in that. Have you talked to jack?

Kyle: He doesn’t see it or doesn’t want to. And it’s causing a lot of tension between mom and me.

[ Summer sighs ]

Summer: After working with my mom at marchetti, I can sympathize, believe me.

Kyle: I mean, when i discreetly try to clean up after a mistake she’s made, I’m the jerk who’s overstepped or looking for fault where there is none. And it’s not just that she’s screwed up, it’s that… I’m making her look bad. And make it clear, I’m the one keeping an eye out, saving the day. Honestly… she’s not wrong.

Jack: You know what? Billy’s right, I think we have stressed you to the point of exhaustion. That’s on us, and I apologize. Why don’t you go upstairs, get some rest, and know we all love you very much.

Sharon: Maybe one of you should go with her.

Traci: Um, I will do it. Come on, ashley, let’s go upstairs, and get you tucked in.

Jack: Here we go.

[ Whispering ] Thank you. Okay, I played along, because you seem to have a reason to want ashley out of the room. Why would you not want her to talk to sharon?

Billy: I just think it’s fair that sharon… knows what ashley’s been going through before she goes up there and talks to her. And I think I may know what’s going on.

[ Ash blows a raspberry ]

Ash: Don’t be such a sore loser, you were making a big fat mess of everything.

Ms. Abbott: I had everything under control except for one tiny, little setback. You should have let me stay in control so I could finish this thing. The most dangerous thing for ashley is to be around those people that are questioning her, and doubting her.

Ash: You are way more dangerous than they are.

Ms. Abbott: They don’t know what’s right for her, stupid. They think they do, but they’re wrong. I’m the only one that can protect her, and make things right again.

Traci: Ashley, look what I found in your closet, oh, my gosh, do you remember this? This is the quilt I made you for your 21st birthday. I had no idea you still had this.

[ Laughs ] Here we go.

[ Ashley sniffling ] I’m so glad that I finally get to do this for you for a change. Do you remember all those nights you used to tuck me in when we were little girls?

[ Chuckles ] You would sneak into my room after everybody else was asleep.

[ Sighs ] We would talk until way past our bedtimes about all the dreams we hoped to have that night. For me, it was always the family I wanted to have when I grew up, you know, and raising ponies.

[ Laughs ] And for you, you always wanted to grow up to be a professional go-go dancer and a marine biologist. Do you remember, ashley?

[ Ashley sobbing ]

Ashley: I’m so scared. Traci… I need help.

Traci: I’m here, honey, it’s– I’m here, aww.

If you have chronic

kidney disease you can reduce

Summer: Kyle, you’ve worked so hard to accept your mom back into your life, and you’ve finally accomplished that. You’re trying to show her up now after being so supportive–

Kyle: I hate feeling all this resentment. I mean, she’s my mother. I love her, but every time I try to move on, let it go, it just seems to get worse.

Summer: Can I be honest? I kind of had a feeling something like this would happen, the moment that I heard that jack promoted her.

Kyle: How the hell did you know that?

Summer: Because I know you. And I’m sure you did have the best of intentions when you pushed for your mom to take the position that should have been yours. And who knows, maybe you wouldn’t be feeling so much resentment if she were nailing the job, but… she’s not. And how could she? Let’s face it, she didn’t exactly get it based off of her resume.

Kyle: Well, she has some qualifications. The biggest one being my dad likes working with her.

[ Laughs ] Depending on her, he doesn’t have to share power. She’s happy being second position as long as I’m a distant third.

Summer: Great, so this is working out for jack now, but can’t last forever. Not that jack would ever admit that.

Kyle: Yeah, that’ll never happen. So I’m stuck. Back off and let her screw up, which will hurt the company, and it’ll drive me nuts, or do I try to clean up after her in some more low-key way? I– I don’t know what to do.

Summer: Okay, those are not real options. The only choice you have… walk away before you reach a breaking point, or you stand up. You prove to everyone what they already know. That it’s you, not diane, who deserves to be jack’s co-ceo at jabot.

Ms. Abbott: You stupid little bitch. You’ve destroyed all of my hard work. Thanks to you waking ashley up, her family thinks the only way to protect her is to send her to fairview. And what do you think happens to us, powerless? And all of our efforts to save her from tucker are gone. You think it was tough being chained to a cot? You just wait. You just wait until you find yourself all alone, in a corner, wrapped up tight in a straightjacket. You ruined everything!

Jack: It was a fraught situation that none of us intended.

Billy: Ashley was angry. She was combative.

Diane: She claimed that we refused to listen to her.

Billy: And that the whole evening was a betrayal.

Jack: She accused billy and me of holding her hostage when we didn’t allow her to leave.

Sharon: And then she had no memory of it?

Jack: No, no, didn’t even remember how she got here or why we were gathered in the first place.

Billy: Hey, how is she?

Traci: Poor thing, she’s so drained emotionally and physically. She went to sleep pretty quickly.

Jack: Well, good for her. I’m sure it helped that you were there with her, thank you.

Traci: Thank you, I hope so. So they’re getting you all caught up?

Sharon: Yes, I’m sure there’s a lot more to the story, but I get the gist of it. Yes, I’m really sorry for what ashley and all of you are going through. I know how terrifying it must be. Um, you said before that she thought you were trying to lock her up, so she’s refused to speak with a professional?

Traci: Well, tonight I think that would be true, but before, when ashley was more herself, she wanted to get help. These– these blackouts are terrifying her.

Sharon: She’s having blackouts?

Jack: Uh, we were about to get to that.

Traci: Yes, they are frightening her, of course. Uh, but she was out all night, and couldn’t recall a thing. She promised me that she was going to go see a specialist.

Sharon: But then she didn’t follow through.

Traci: She doesn’t even remember now why she didn’T. It’s as if we’re dealing with two ashleys.

Billy: Or maybe it’s more than that. Hellmann’s real mayonnaise.

Kyle: It’s a bold move. Are you telling me to turn on my mother?

Summer: I also said you could just walk away.

Kyle: Uh-huh.

Summer: Believe it or not, my opinion of diane has softened since she first got to town. I mean, will I ever completely trust her? We both know the answer to that.

Kyle: Yes, yes, we do.

Summer: Whatever, go ahead, and say it, I’m the skeptical one that doesn’t trust easily, whether we’re talking about ex-mothers-in-law or crazy cousins.

Kyle: Oh, I was not going to say that at all.

Summer: Yes, I did think from the jump that diane should not have taken this job. What she should have done is turned down jack’s offer, and insisted that he gave the position back to you. I mean, to take a job that she’s not even remotely qualified for, and to take it from her son, no less? It– it was self-serving and arrogant. And kyle, it was doomed to fail from the start. Whether jack knows it or not, I know it, and so do you. With as much as jabot means to all of the abbotts, can you really afford to have diane in this position of power without the ability to handle it?

Kyle: You’re right. You’re right, this is never going to work. If I don’t do something, I will suffer. The company will suffer, and so will the family. There’s no way around it. I either walk away, or take what should have been mine in the first place.

Jack: Wait, that’s what you think? That ashley splintered? That we’re dealing with dual personalities?

Billy: I’m definitely not gonna diagnose ashley, okay? I’m not going to do that, but… I think it’s pretty clear that we all witnessed two very different personas here tonight, right? I mean, even the threat to go after tucker. Ashley apparently referred to herself in third person. I had a very odd run-in with her at society where I walked away from that, thinking that I just had a conversation with a teenager, okay? And I didn’t want to make a big deal out of it, because I didn’t want to project my own experience onto her.

Traci: Your own experience?

[ Billy sighs ]

Jack: Might as well go ahead, and tell her.

Billy: Okay, um, a few years ago, I went through a pretty dark period. And I was– I was blacking out. And I would lose whole chunks of time. And I was out and about, you know, while these blackouts would occur, and– and I was not doing good things.

Traci: When was this, billy?

Billy: It was years ago, but it was after delia’s death, and… the truth is, I thought I had dealt with everything. But I– I hadn’t, and I was hallucinating, seeing delia’s ghost.

Traci: Oh, billy.

Billy: I was getting into bar fights. There was one– one particular time that I woke up in the chancellor mansion with no idea how I got there, what I was doing there. There was another… really bad night that I’m not gonna get into. But I was still blaming adam for delia’s death, and I wanted nothing more than to hurt him, to, uh, get my revenge.

Sharon: Billy, if you need to take a moment…

Billy: It’s okay, it’s just– look, I got some very serious therapy. And– and they treated me for dissociative identity disorder. And I’m lucky, because I got help. And I honestly don’t know what would’ve happened if I didn’t, I know one thing for sure, victoria would’ve banned me from seeing the kids, there’s no doubt about that. And she would’ve been right to do it.

Jack: But you did the work. You found your way to the other side of it, and I will forever be proud of you for it.

Billy: Look, ashley’s stronger than I am, okay? And we all love her so much, and we’re all here for her, so I know, I’m telling you right now, she’s gonna be okay.

Jack: So what do you think, sharon, you think there’s a chance this is even a possibility?

Sharon: Billy is absolutely right. There are similarities. But none of us can diagnose ashley, including me. Um, it could be did. But there are other possibilities. And this is far too serious for guesswork, I am going to make some calls first thing in the morning, and get you a list of referrals. Ashley needs to see a professional right away, obviously.

Jack: Thank you, sharon. We are so grateful, listen, the ashley we saw tonight is going to fight us every step of the way. How would you suggest we get over those hurdles?

Traci: No, I don’t think so, jack, I promise you, that ashley I took upstairs, and tucked into bed, she will go along with this, 100%. She wants help, she’s ready. Our sister is in there. I just know it. I tried to reach in, and find her, but I couldn’T. It– it’s like she’s lost. And I have never seen her so fragile or– or so terrified. We’ve got to help her before it’s too late.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


[ Groans ] What if we made a mistake? We didn’T. What if the style’s all wrong? It won’t be. What if the — the lace is like a gross shade of ivory? Never gonna happen. Ma! What, baby? What if we ruined lila’s dress for nothing? Baby, lila’s dress was already ruined. Unsalvageable said the seamstress. Except for the best part, which we’re putting to perfect use. So what are you really afraid of? What if I don’t like it? If you don’t like your wedding dress, we will scrap it, and we will find you one that you love. Because there is nothing more important than your happiness on your wedding day, huh? Capiche? Capiche. Mm.

[ Gasps ] Ladies, are you ready? Is that it? The wedding gown of your dreams. Look at you! Are you kidding me? Look at this progress! It’s incredible! Well, I firmly believe that, uh, you know, you do the work, you can achieve anything. Yeah, I was in greenland with you, so I am not going to underestimate you. But this, this is like — walking this soon after surgery, that’s next level. Thank you. And he can take a compliment. Ah, yeah, well, trina’s been on me about “absorbing good energy.” Sounds a little woo-woo to me, but I’m trying. Very happy for you. Okay, so don’t keep me in suspense. What am I doing here? I’m here. So, uh, what’s going on? Let the meeting of the minds commence. You did not just say that. Do you deny it? That I’m being mean to your precious gossip slinger? What, are we in second grade? Dewitt is not just the invader’s society columnist. Oy, that title. He got a promotion. He is now associate publisher. I know that, nina. You remind me of that all the time. How can I possibly forget that you’ve hired somebody that’s incompetent? Says who? Says me. I say it. And it’s not dewitt’s fault that he’s going to make an ass out of himself, because that honor belongs to you. Hey, tj. Tj: Good morning, good morning. And a beautiful morning it is. I got eggs sandwiches, too. That’s very thoughtful of you. Hey, look, not that I wasn’t thrilled to get your call, but, uh, since you got the morning off, why aren’t you spending it with molly? I considered it, but I knew how that conversation would go. Ooh. [ Chuckles ] And how’s that? Well, she’d thank me for wanting us to do something together, and then she’d say that she has an arraignment in five minutes, but that she can make it up to me tonight. And then that would turn into her trying too hard, and both of us faking our way through whatever it is that she thought of. Or even worse, even worse, she stays late at the office to avoid the situation altogether. Whoa. Who are we talking about here? Because that doesn’t sound anything like you and molly. Anna: Thank you for meeting me. Yeah. I know it was so last-minute. Lucky for you, I had no breakfast plans. Please sit down. Okay. Thank you. Hope you don’t mind. I ordered you tea. Oh, lovely. Thanks. May I? Yes. That’s very thoughtful. Great. Well, you called, and I came. So what’s this about? I wonder if you could help me with a case. I’ll always help you. What’s the case? Pikeman.

I don’t know what I was so afraid of. Oh, my gosh. The dress is perfection! Oh, the only thing more beautiful than that dress was you in it. You crying again? Oh, get used to it! My baby girl’s getting married in the most magical wedding gown. I don’t know how sandrine did it, but she really captured the spirit of lila’s dress to a T. Oh, no, it feels like she — she channeled lila, you know, all of her kindness and her warmth and her acceptance and generosity. Because that’s who lila was. You’re so lucky you got to wear her gown. You get to be a part of that, too. In the tiniest way. No, in your own way. That’s what makes it so special. You get to have a piece of lila while still being who you are. Beautiful, amazing, incredible you. Thanks for doing this with me, ma. Ah, are you kidding me? Are you insane? I would’ve busted that door down if I hadn’t have gotten an invite to this. Oh, well, then I’m glad I did.

[ Both laugh ] Oh, brook lynn, I’m so happy for you, and I’m happy for chase. I-I’m happy for all of us, really. I’m happy for us, too.

[ Laughs ] Nina, why don’t you just admit it? Admit what? That you hired dewitt to piss me off. No, I actually do think he’s an asset. And the fact that he’s a colossal thorn in my side? Oh, that’s just a perk. No doubt about it. Why? Why do I enjoy steam shooting out of your ears? Why are you doing this? You don’t even work here anymore. Exactly why I needed a replacement. You didn’t need a replacement, nina. I was doing just fine. And I would do even better if you would stop breathing down my neck. Do you want people to read your publication? What kind of question is that? Do you?! Everything was fine before you got here. But is it better since I brought dewitt on? And be honest about that. It is, because there is a measurable rise in website traffic. And you think that’s because of a gossip column? Yes, partially! I mean, alexis, you have to court your readers. You have to give them something delicious and irresistible so they stick around for the hard news. What you can’t do is decide what’s good for them and ram it down their throats. You have to woo them. What if I just quit? There’s the door. It’s good to see you back on your feet. It’s good to be back. I hear jason was exonerated. Yeah, yeah, we’re all relieved about that. You know, when he was suspected of taking shots at sonny, I thought maybe there was a chance that he had tried before, last summer at the metro court. It’s nice to know it wasn’t jason who put me in that wheelchair. Didn’t stay in that wheelchair very long, though, did you? No, I was lucky. I had an experimental surgery, and it worked. Come on, man, the surgery just gave you a chance to walk again. You are the one that made that a reality. All the rehab, learning how to walk again, are you kidding me? I can’t imagine what that was like for you. You got all my respect for making it through that, getting to the other side. Thanks. Drew, I doubt you brought us here to congratulate me on walking again. So why are we here? How you feeling? Sore. I bet. Oh, and very tired. Oh. Really? You didn’t sleep well? It’s hard to get a good night’s sleep with you waking me up every couple hours. I’m sorry. Should I have let you monitor your own signs of concussion? Am I, by the way? Concussed? No. I mean, you’re bruised and bloodied, but somehow, your head came out unscathed. Is that your professional opinion as my almost-nurse? Really? Are you going to start arguing with me this early in the morning? I already know it won’t do any good.

sandrine, I can’t wait to see what my mother chose for her dress. Thank you. She might surprise you. Oh, don’t worry. Nothing my mother does surprises me. I am well aware of her… flair, shall we say. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. Mm. Like I said… ta-da! Wow. Ma, that’s — you — you hate it? You know, you always say that. “There’s the door.” But you and I both know that you need me. Yes. Agreed. Yes. And I have been agreeing with you the whole time. My point is that I think that the paper would benefit if we just had dewitt’s expertise and experience. No. No? That’s it, just no? I will not sit by and let the invader be turned back into a tabloid. Then don’t let it. I’m trying, but you’re making it very difficult. Ugh! Alexis davis? I just need a signature. Alexis: Sure. You know what it’s gonna say on your tombstone, alexis? “Death by frustration”? Thank you. No, it’s gonna say, “alexis davis. Didn’t play well with others.” And now we’re back to the schoolyard. Because you refuse to grow up. Dewitt stays. End of discussion. That seemed cordial. I can’t stand that woman. Okay. Deep breaths. How? She sucked all the air out of the room. Professional differences? You can say that. Come in, my darling. Tell me something wonderful that has nothing to do with this publication. I would, but I can’T. The invader is actually why I’m here. Have you ever looked back on a decision and just known you should have gone with your gut? Too many times, son, too many times. When molly pitched the idea of kristina being both our surrogate and egg donor, my instincts were screaming that this is the wrong move. It is the wrong move, and for a million reasons, but the most glaring being that kristina’s too close. There’s no finish line. There’s no cutting ties at the end. Why? Because there couldn’t be. She’s molly’s sister. And since molly couldn’t go forward without your buy-in, that was your moment to shut it down. Right?I should have explained. Right. I should have explained why I was against it, calmly and unequivocally. And — but just before anything got too far. But instead, I went with the short-term gain of giving molly what she wanted. Some would call that being supportive, son. Granddad, I call that being a coward. She was — oh, man. She was so wrecked, granddad. She was — she was utterly devastated that she couldn’t get pregnant. So when she pitched the idea, I knew that, for molly, the closest thing she could have to carrying her own baby was for her sister to have it for her. You know, dante and I, we were ambushed on the docks by roman hume. Who? Worked for pikeman. It’s just so strange, you know? All roads seem to lead back to this one ultra-secretive organization that’s run by a ghost. A ghost? Pikeman’s ties to the wsb are clear, but nobody seems to know who is at the top of the pyramid. So I need information. I was hoping maybe you could provide it for me. On pikeman? Yeah. I mean, you were working with them as recently as last summer. As an intermediary, a glorified messenger. Yeah. How did that job come about, by the way? Uh, well, I did some contract work for them back in the ’90s, so they felt comfortable asking me to introduce them to sonny. But whether sonny and pikeman did any work together after that, that — that wasn’t my concern. Well, maybe I can pick your brain about something else. Or someone. Who? Jack brennan.

What’s wrong with it? Absolutely nothing. Well, something. Uh, the dress is lovely. It’s, um — it’s classy and elegant and tasteful. Mm, I feel a “but” coming. No buts. It’s — it’s just not really your style. Okay, “it’s just” and “but” are exactly the same thing. Come on, ma. You think that’s your style to go out on a saturday night? No, but, you know, I was under the impression that what you wear to your daughter’s wedding and what you wear to go out clubbing are two, you know, completely different things. They don’t have to be this different. I mean, what kind of nails would you even do with that? Oh, I was, um — I was thinking maybe just clear.What?! Well, I’m the mother of the bride. I’m supposed to be understated. Ma… huh? …There’s no “supposed to be” here. This isn’t a royal wedding. There are no standards you have to live up to. I just want you to wear what you want to wear. Something that makes you feel like you. Oh. This definitely doesn’t feel like me. I didn’t think so. Back to the drawing board. Oh! Sandrine, let’s pull some colors, some swatches, maybe show some skin this ti– oh. Oh, you know what? A plunging neckline, something really — alright, alright, let’s — let’s not get carried away. No? Chase! Did I miss it? Miss what? What are you doing here? There’s been a special order for the bride-to-be. Hmm! Okay, I saw that. What are you two up to? I was commissioned to design a dress for your honeymoon. Do you really think that’s necessary? Very.

[ Gasps ] Oh, my god. It’s gorgeous. Do you like it? I’m obsessed with it. Yay! But it’s long sleeves. Don’t you think I’ll be a little warm in palm beach? We’re not going to palm beach. The invader ran a piece on the da’s office being opposed to revisiting heather webber’s conviction, her multiple convictions, of assault and homicide going back nearly 20 years. That was the metallosis diagnosis. Yes, I signed off on that. Okay. Then you know the article cited an unnamed source. Yes. Mom. What? Well, everybody at the da’s office assumes that source is me. Well, it isn’T. Well, you know that. And I know that. But my colleagues, specifically district attorney scorpio, do not know that. Molly, what do you want me to do about it? The story checked out. I want you to help me prove that I’m not the one who broke confidentiality and discussed the case with the reporter. And how exactly do you want me to do that? You tell me who did. Does molly know you have misgivings about kristina being the surrogate? Well, I don’t say it exactly like that, but… yeah. You know, molly has her worries, too. And I think — I think that’s the problem, ’cause whenever I tell her my concerns — which are what? Besides the “being too close” part. I just don’t think kristina is taking the best care of herself. She’s out late. She’s not avoiding stress. And then there’s a small fact that she’s hanging out with her dad who is getting shot at on the regular. Okay. Okay. Point taken. So when you bring all these things up to molly…? She — she takes the position of defending kristina, even though I know we share the same concerns. And that’s why we avoid the topic altogether. I just feel like in this time, molly and I should be closer than ever, but I just feel more and more distant from her. Hmm. And what about kristina? Has your relationship been affected? How could it not be? Every time I share any worry that I might have with her, she accuses me of overreacting. It’s as if — it’s as if kristina is having the baby, and she’s going to let us know when it’s here.

[ Sighs ] God. I, um — I sound ungrateful, don’t I? No. You sound human. That’s what mom said. Smart woman, your mother. I’ve been doing some research, and the floodgate consultancy group says the wellness and fitness space is booming out there all across the country, but especially in the high-end areas, both residential and urban. People spending so much money not only to look good, but also to feel good, really laying the foundation for health, wellness, and longevity. I read that report, too. Uh, 40 is the new 25, and with the right wellness regimen and the right products, you too can achieve it. So thoughts? I think it is a good time for aurora to diversify. I mean, thanks to crimson, print media is still an earner for us, but that market is drying up. We need to find alternative revenue streams. So I think getting into an expanding market makes sense. An expanding market like health and wellness. Which is where you come in. It’s just toast and eggs. I don’t understand what takes so long.

[ Whispering ] Hey. Hey.

[ Whispering ] What? Ibuprofen. Right there. Oh.

[ Normal voice ] Yeah. No. I’ll hold. That shower felt amazing, huh? Oh. It did. Yeah. It’s amazing what hot water can do, huh? Uh, not so hot, actually. Yeah, I’m ho– I’m still holding. What?The water never got too warm. You gotta be kidding me. I’m here. Yes. I’m here. No, I’m pretty sure there’s no food in my hotel room. What? They left the food outside the door without knocking? Yeah, okay. Gotta be kidding me. No hot water, shoddy room service, I mean, this hotel is definitely going downhill. Oh. Good morning to you.

[ Sighs ]

Well, what I remember about jack brennan is his rapid rise to the director of wsb was followed by a spectacular fall. He single-handedly orchestrated frisco jones’ ouster, and a year later, he was out himself. You know he’s in pentonville, right? Yeah, thanks to you. In part. I went to visit him the other day. Why? Curiosity. You haven’t been to see him yet? Have I been to see jack brennan in pentonville? No. No, I have not. Why would I do that? Because you guys were close, back in the day, when we were all coming up together at the wsb. Uh, no, no, not really. No. Jack brennan did very well academically and even better with the ladies. But I was in the back of the room not making eye contact.

[ Chuckles ] No, I distinctly remember the two of you at that pub that we used to go to, the, um — what was it called? The archangel. And you two, you were playing, uh, dice or something, or whatever it was. Anyway, you were laughing because you’d aced an assignment that the rest of us had just completely botched. I don’t know. That sounds like, uh, jack. Doesn’t sound like me. I mean, if I was at the archangel, I was lurking. I wasn’t hanging with the cool kids. Not like you. You were at the center of the circle. Jack was there, too. No, I think, uh, you probably have me mixed up with someone else. No, you two were always feeding off each other. You were just pushing each other to be better, to be smarter anna, if anyone was pushing anybody, you were pushing him, because you two were the best of the best. Everybody knew that. I was on a fast track to a desk job. Anna… jack brennan and i have never shared more than 10 words together. Moll, I cannot and I will not reveal the identity of my sources. Now you’re going to cite journalistic integrity. Very good, counselor. Okay, but that’s crazy. Leaked privileged information is not protected speech. Whoever that source is not only violated their professional conduct guidelines, but they’ve also jeopardized future cases. That sounds like a da problem, not mine. It’s a very big problem if the article affected the fairness of a trial. What trial? Heather’s already been convicted on multiple counts, and the da has refused to revisit any of those cases. And without a case on the docket, you can’t argue that a leak compromised anything. Mm! You are impossible. That’s part of my charm. Would you like to lock me up until I crack?

[ Chuckles ] Son, you are in a-a tough and undesirable situation. Life. Life hands those to us sometimes. When one was handed to me, I-I went for the big fix. Gave up my family to protect them. But had I stayed, had I gutted it out, turns out I probably would’ve had a pretty decent life. So, you’re saying I made a huge mistake? No, no. I’m saying — I’m saying it’s — it’s human nature, or more specifically, male nature, to go — to go for the big fix. You see, sometimes that’s not always the answer. Sometimes you can just let it breathe and settle. And that could be the way to go. Well, unfortunately, that ship has sailed.

[ Laughs ] No, no, not for — for the here and now. Look, kristina is who she is. And yes, she’s carrying your baby, so you can’t change that. You can’t fix that. But what you can do, what you can do is step back and take a look at the — the whole picture, and focus on what really matters. Your relationship. With molly. Nina: Fun night? Stalk much? Just doing my regular rounds. You remember. Vividly. Although this hotel is definitely not what it used to be. Better? Not quite. I didn’t think you could surprise me anymore, carly, but you’ve done it. An fbi agent? What’s sonny going to think, or jason for that matter? And poor drew. Forever the runner-up in the twin department. Are you finished? I could keep at it all day. Wow. Okay.

[ Chuckles ] Well, I am happy you’re here. Well, no one could be happier than me. I’d like to file a complaint about room service. Do you even have time to eat? ‘Cause you seem to be quite busy. You know, why don’t you spend less time worrying about my private life and more time managing your hotel? Enjoy the rest of your stay. Unbelievable. Kidding me. Ugh. Unbelievable. Leaving food outside the room without telling you or knocking at the damn door? So stupid. Hi. Friend of yours? Oh.

[ Scoffs ]

I’m listening. Well, as I mentioned, the wellness/fitness space is booming, right? And aurora wants to move into that business, but we need somebody to spearhead the initiative. Meaning? Somebody with practical experience and knowledge of the fitness industry. A strong leader with customer service experience and multi-level management skills. Which obviously you have. I mean, the savoy, come on, that’s a huge success. Okay. Um, so how do you see aurora…

[Grunts] …Moving into business? Well, what would you do? Um, well, the most practical thing might be for aurora to buy, uh — buy up some of the small gyms across the country, rebrand them, and combine them into a national high-end fitness club. People are spending a lot of money in wellness — um, meditation rooms, plunge baths, uh, yoga, pilates, physical training, uh, mind-body connection. And combined with a training/fitness facility, you guys, this is a one-stop shop. I mean, it might require some significant, uh, capital. Which we have. Drew, you won’t believe this. I just saw carly — I get the sense you two don’t get along. You must be an fbi agent.

[ Chuckles ] You okay? Yeah, yeah, I mean, I don’t let nina get to me. Mm. I try not to let nina get to me. I, uh, know a little bit about your history.

[ Sighs ] Lucky you. Take it there’s not enough water under the bridge yet? There’s not enough water in the world. Sorry about the eggs. Ridiculous. Oh, it’s not your fault. Besides, coffee is the only necessary component. When I owned the metro court, this would have never flown. I mean, if a customer complained about their food, we would redo it with no charge. You’re big on customer service. Yeah, it’s literally what the hospitality industry is all about. You must have had your fair share of jerks blow through here, though.

[ Sighs ] Yeah, sure. But for the most part, I mean, people, they were great. And I loved it. I love making people happy and comfortable and special, you know? Don’t you get to scratch that itch running bobbie’s? To an extent. And I don’t get me wrong, I love bobbie’s, I really do, but it’s a restaurant, full stop. This place, I got a taste of all of it, you know, really curating a space, from the carpets to the linens to the lighting, even the music. Pulling all of those things together to create the ultimate experience, ah, I loved it. Sounds like a symphony. Yeah. Yeah, it kind of was. And you were good at it. I was great at it. Think you’ll ever do it again? I don’t know. I mean, I tell people I will. You know, I’m going to get my half of the metro court back. But I think that’s just a pipe dream, you know? Metro court belongs to someone else. Two someone elses. I’m just gonna have to accept that. I’ve been working on a surprise for you. But you’re terrible at keeping secrets. Brook lynn.

[ Laughing ] What? It’s true. Your mom has been helping me keep this under wraps. Mm, guilty as charged. Okay, so no more palm beach? Please tell me you’re not working. It’s our honeymoon. Oh, we’re still going away. But there has been a change in destination. Okay, well, as long as it’s not a downgrade, I’m in. Okay, so where we talking, like miami, charleston, palm springs? I’ve never been to the desert. Think a little further away than that. Okay. Like out of the us away? Chase, what did you do? I am marrying the woman of my dreams. No. Scratch that. I never dreamed of you, because I didn’t know that someone this wonderful could exist. And I want our honeymoon to be a reflection of that. I want you to remember this trip for the rest of your life. Because you deserve it, brook lynn. You deserve everything. You are the sweetest man on the planet. So where on this planet are you taking me? Florence. No. You’re kidding. I’m not kidding. Florence, italy? Your mom said you wanted to go. Only for my entire life. Oh, my god! Florence?! Oh, my god. And not only do I get to go, I get to go with you? Are you happy? Happy doesn’t even begin to cover it. So I guess you win. Again. Freedom of the press wins. Always. Except I have no idea why I’m fighting so hard for it when it comes to this paper. Because you care about your job and the integrity of your paper. Integrity the new associate publisher will undoubtedly destroy. What’s this? I don’t know. A messenger dropped it off when I was fighting with nina. Have you looked at it? I was too consumed with rage to care. What is it? Well, it’s from the appellate division of the supreme court of the state of new york. They’re handling my appeal. Yeah. This is probably your decision. Whether they’ll review your case or you’ll stay disbarred. Open it! No, I-I-I can’T. You do it. Are you sure?

Alexis: It’s okay, molly. You know, it was a long shot anyway. And, you know, so I-I — the appeal was denied, and life will go on. Mom, they’re giving you a hearing. I’m sorry? They’ve set a date and everything. Let me see that.

[ Chuckles ] Molly, they’re giving me a hearing. Not just that, they’re giving you hope! Mom, mom, this is hope!

[ Laughs ] Whoo!

[ Laughs ] You need to find reasons for you and molly to come together that aren’t about the baby. It’s those — it’s those moments of now, the moments when it’s — it’s just the two of you. Those moments are precious, too. Now, as much as I enjoyed that egg sandwich in this beautiful park… and the incredible company of your grandson.

[ Chuckling ] Yeah, yeah. Yeah, that, too. But, man, get your behind over to the store and buy all the ingredients for molly’s favorite dinner. Just make sure it’s reheat-able in case she does have to work late at night. But wouldn’t that be nice for molly to come home and see her favorite meal on the table waiting on her? Molly would love that. Hey. Don’t you spend the next three months wringing your hands over what kristina is or isn’t doing. Spend the next three months with your partner being just that, partners, before you become parents. ‘Cause I’m telling you, boy, you in the catbird seat. That molly, she a very special woman. Yes, she is. Thank you, granddad. Hey. There it is.

[ Chuckles ] Chase: Alright. Mimosa for the bride-to-be. Here you are. Thank you. Cheers. Cheers. I cannot believe it’s true. Oh. Believe it. Oh, florence, the uffizi, the duomo, david? Whoa! Who’s this david guy? Oh, my god. And we have to take a day trip to pisa and — and an overnight to verona, the city of romeo and juliet. You’ve thought a lot about this. I am telling you, this is like a bucket-list thing for me. Oh, and — and I can’t wait to — to look up all the best restaurants. And we are going to have gelato every single day, no exceptions, okay? Yes, ma’am.

[ Laughs ] And, um, oh, we are going to drink wine at sunset in every piazza we can find. This is going to be so incredible. You’re so incredible. Oh, my god. Chase, we have, like, so much planning to do. Okay, we have to — wait. What’s wrong? A honeymoon to florence is a lot more expensive than one stateside. I mean, the airfare alone. It’s okay, I — I have the money for it. How? I sold my truck. Maybe you and jack weren’t friends, but you certainly knew each other, right? Of course we did. You know, when — when you were working with pikeman, in your dealings with them, did — did you ever get the sense that he was involved? You think jack brennan is working with pikeman? I do. Yeah. I can’t get him to admit it. But when you were an intermediary, did anything jump out at you? I wish I had something useful to offer you. Sadly, I don’T. Okay. It was worth a try. Maybe when I go back to see him again — don’T. I’m sorry? Pikeman and brennan are dangerous. If they’re working together, then they’re not to be messed with. Thank you for your concern. I can take care of myself. Please do. Sure. Thank you for breakfast. Thanks again. Oh, again? I don’t think you thanked me the first time. Then thank you. And not just for saving my hide on the docks, but for getting me back here and keeping an eye on me all night. You’re welcome. It was good to be… friends, uh, I guess, even if it’s just for a minute. Just a minute? Are fbi agents not allowed to have friends?

[ Chuckles ] Oh. Oh. What, are they worried you’re going to divulge classified information? Something like that.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Makes sense, I guess. Yeah. But, um… how do you know you don’t talk in your sleep? We’re in the middle of a meeting, nina, so try back later. W-what were you going to say about my mom? What did you do now? I didn’t do anything. I just thought drew would want to know that carly moved on quickly from him and is now sleeping with everyone’s favorite fbi agent, john cates.

[ Upbeat music ]

Finn: There’s just no way.

Deacon: Listen to me. I’m telling you that I think sheila might be alive.

Finn: Deacon, you’re grieving, and grief takes many forms.

Deacon: No, I’d accepted it, okay? I even had the memorial service. But then, when I was at the crematorium, you–

Finn: You saw her face.

Deacon: Yes, I saw her face, and then I saw ten toes.

Finn: You saw what you wanted to see.

Deacon: No, I saw a woman’s pair of feet with a full set of digits.

Finn: I know it’s hard to accept losing her, and you are under a lot of strain.

Deacon: Listen to me. Sheila had nine toes. I saw ten. Explain that to me.

Finn: I’m afraid that your mind is playing tricks on you, deacon. Sheila is dead. Steffy killed her.

Steffy: Rj, this is great.

Rj: Really?

Steffy: Yeah. Has hope seen this?

Rj: Uh, no. No, I was just playing around.

Steffy: I’m– wow, I am really impressed. I mean, you have– you’ve come a long way. Really improved.

Rj: Thank you. Oh, hey, that’s high praise coming from my big sis/co-ceo.

Steffy: Aha, don’t you forget it.

Rj: Oh, come on, I know who’s running things around here.

Steffy: Hey, now that thomas is gone, and hope is revamping her line, I mean, this is a great opportunity for you to work on hope for the future.

Rj: Yeah, I know. Zende and I met with hope, and we talked about stepping up. Luna, too.

Steffy: I’m glad to hear it.

Rj: Yeah, I think the three of us are gonna– we’re gonna work well together.

Luna: I have to tell rj the truth.

Zende: I understand.

Luna: I mean, I have no other choice.

Zende: No, it’s totally up to you. I just wish I could forget about that night.

Luna: Yeah, well, I can’t, zende. I mean, I’ve tried, but every time I look at rj, it’s like– it’s like I’m– I’m– I’m betraying him all over again.

Zende: It was a complete misunderstanding. Neither of us knew that you were under the influence.

Luna: But I’ve been lying to him every day since. I’m just– I’m terrified of how he’s gonna react.

Zende: You’re worried that he’s gonna end your relationship? Listen, I hope that you’re wrong, but whether rj does or doesn’t, I will always be here for you.

Luna: Um, you’re nice to say that, zende. And I know that you didn’t realize what was going on with me the, uh, the night that we spent together.

Zende: Neither did you. We had no idea that you were under the influence of your mom’s laced mints.

Luna: I don’t blame you, okay? But I still feel horrible about what happened. I mean, the last thing I expected was to be involved with two men. Two incredible guys, part of this amazing family who have so much love for me. And now I’m bringing drama and anxiety into everyone’s lives.

Zende: Don’t worry about that.

Luna: But I mean, I know how tight your family is. And I know how important it is that all of you get along. And I don’t wanna disrupt that. But I’m sorry, I just– I can’t live like this anymore.

Rj: Hey, um, I know you’ve been dealing with a lot lately. How– how are you holding up?

Steffy: Just doing my best to keep busy.

Rj: Okay, yeah. I heard about the memorial at il giardino. That was weird.

Ridge: Yeah, it was weird. Hey.

[ Phone dinging ]

Steffy: Hi.

Rj: That’s luna, she wants to talk to me at my place.

Ridge: All right, go.

Steffy: Yeah, we’ll call you if we need you.

Rj: Yeah? Okay.

Ridge: So we’re still talking about this memorial, huh? What was deacon thinking?

Deacon: Yeah, I know. I’m nuts, I’m insane. I’m as crazy as sheila is. But what if I’m right?

Finn: It’s not plausible.

Deacon: No, what if it is? What if I did see ten toes? What if your mother’s alive? File 100% free with turbotax free edition.

Luna: All right, it’s done. I’m– I’m gonna go meet rj at his house.

Zende: So, you’re really doing this?

Luna: Yeah, I have to. Listen, I know that this might damage your relationship with him. So, I just– I hope that you don’t think I’m being selfish.

Zende: No. Of course not. Rj and I will always be cousins. We’ll figure it out. I’m just concerned about you.

Luna: Yeah, um, keeping this secret is killing me. Every time rj asks me if something’s wrong, I mean, I’m just flat out lying to him whenever I tell him no. And I can’t do it. It just— it’s not me.

Zende: No. You’re a good person. You’d never intentionally hurt someone.

Luna: You wouldn’t either.

Zende: Thank you. If you think telling rj is the only way to give you some peace, the only way to free you from this guilt and this shame that you’re feeling, then you gotta do it. I know it’s scary. I know that rj is going to be hurt. But look at you. You’re torturing yourself. I hate to see you like this.

Luna: Yeah, I– I can’t wait another day. That’s not fair to him.

Zende: No. No, it’s not. Rj deserves to know about our night together.

Ridge: I know they had their fling, but deacon thinks that they were in love.

Steffy: Oh, gosh. Whatever their twisted version of love is.

Ridge: How did I not get invited to this? It hurts me to the core.

Steffy: Oh, yeah, I’m sure. You know it was just finn and– and hope.

Ridge: I know. And I get why hope was there. She was there to support her dad. But what was finn trying to get out of this?

Steffy: He wanted to say goodbye.

Ridge: Say goodbye to the woman that almost killed him? Almost killed you, twice?

Steffy: Okay, dad, I’m still struggling to wrap my head around it.

Ridge: So am I. She was coming after you for months.

Steffy: I know that, but dad, you have to understand, like, I don’t want finn to resent me. Like I don’t wanna seem that way.

Ridge: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Resent you? For what?

Steffy: I– I’m his wife, and I stabbed his birth mother.

Ridge: She had it coming. She came after you. You had no choice.

Steffy: Yeah, logically, finn knows that.

Ridge: Okay, then, emotionally, he needs to be there for you. He needs to support you.

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: Look, you’ll never forget about sheila. And she will always live on in your memories.

Deacon: I know what I saw.

Finn: Listen, deacon, our brains have a unique way of protecting us from trauma sometimes.

Deacon: Exactly. Save all the doctor stuff, man. Listen, if I’m wrong, go buy me a book on neuroscience. Just listen to me. Please. Guy to guy. Listen to me as her son. What if your birth mother is still alive. What if we didn’t lose her?

Finn: Well, then where is she, deacon? Why isn’t she reaching out to you?

Deacon: Maybe she’s in hiding.

Finn: Hiding? You saw her at the morgue. You saw her face.

Deacon: I saw her after she died, and I saw her before she went into the cremation chamber.

Finn: Exactly. Her body has been identified by multiple people. The coroner confirmed her death. Sheila died in my home at the hands of my wife, and you need to stay rooted in reality. It is the only way to heal from this.

Deacon: You tell me where that extra toe came from.

Finn: It’s wishful thinking. That’s all it is. And I know that you wanna go there, but you really shouldn’t, because it’s only gonna hurt more. The only way to heal from this is to accept the fact that you are never gonna see sheila again.

Rj: Hi.

Luna: Hey.

Rj: I am so sorry I was late, but it was for good reason. I got you something special. Pretty flowers for my pretty lady. Hi.

Luna: Hey.

Rj: So how are you? What do you wanna talk about? Uhhh.

Carter: Zende.

Zende: Hey, carter. What’s up?

Carter: Why do I get the feeling that your mind was a million miles away just now?

Zende: I guess it was. I’m having trouble focusing.

Carter: Well, you better get focused. I mean you have some big opportunities on hope for the future. New lead designer. Mentoring rj and luna.

Zende: That’s the plan.

Carter: How are you not more excited?

Zende: I am. I am, it’S… I just got a lot on my plate.

Carter: Okay. Well, you got this, zende. Don’t let the pressure overwhelm you. You can handle it. And it’s different than last time. You’ve grown so much, and you picked up a lot from hope and thomas.

Zende: It’s not that.

Carter: Then, what is it? What’s gotten you so distracted lately?

Zende: It’s that obvious?

Carter: Don’t think anyone else has picked up on it, as far as I can tell, but I know you. You’ve been off your game. Something’s definitely bothering you. So, what’s going on?

Rj: I was happy to get your text. Glad you found the spare key, let yourself in.

Luna: Yeah, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to make you drive all the way out here.

Rj: No, no, it’S… hey, any excuse I can get to miss charlie’s weekly safety briefing, I’ll take it.

Luna: I don’t know. I just thought that it’d be nice to, um, talk here, away from the office and everyone else. I mean, this place has such wonderful memories for us.

Rj: Yeah. Some of our best memories have been in this house. You know, it’s really starting to feel like a home now. Especially when I see you. It’d be great if you were out here more often.

Luna: Yeah. I’d like that more than anything.

Rj: Okay, all right. Well, then, well starting today. You know, we’ve both been so busy lately. We’ll make more of a point to spend more time together, okay? You know, I got you those flowers to surprise you, but you’re always the one that’s full of surprises. I love that about you. Hey, are you okay? Hey, luna, what’s wrong?

Steffy: Hi, baby. Hm. I wasn’t expecting this kind of sexy greeting.

Finn: What can I say? I can’t get enough of my beautiful wife.

Steffy: Well, I can’t get enough of you.

Finn: I wanna take you right here.

Steffy: Babe, you’re in my office right now.

Finn: Okay, I can’t wait ’til later tonight when you’re home.

Steffy: Okay.

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: So, how’d it go, uh, with deacon at il giardino? Let me guess, it was about sheila.

Finn: Yeah, how’d you guess?

Steffy: Well, deacon is sheila’s number one cheerleader, so… what, did he give you her ashes or something?

Finn: No, no. But, uh, you’re in the ballpark. No, it was odd. Deacon’s really losing it. He’s saying some crazy stuff about sheila.

Steffy: What?

Deacon: I don’t know exactly how I’m gonna solve this. If that wasn’t you, then maybe you’re still alive. I don’t know why the hell this is happening.

Ridge: What’s going on here, sharpie? Talking to yourself?

Deacon: Do me a favor, go away. Not today, please.

Ridge: See, that’s what happens. You hang out with a lunatic, you start losing it yourself. Try killing bugs the worry-free way.

Carter: Something happen? Zende, man, trust me, whatever’s bothering you is not as bad as you think it is.

Zende: Brother, I wish I could say you were right.

Carter: Okay, well, I’m not gonna push you to open up, but–

Zende: No. Actually, this is– I really need to talk to someone, carter.

Carter: Talk about what?

Zende: It’s about luna.

Rj: Luna, talk to me. Listen, I’ve– I’ve noticed that you just haven’t, you know, really been yourself for a while.

Luna: I know.

Rj: It’s okay. I mean, it’s just that normally we’re really connected, and, you know, it’s fun, and we’re vibing, and… it just seems like lately, one second, you’re here, and the next you’ve drifted off someplace else.

Luna: Yeah, I’ve, um… I’ve been really stressed out lately.

Rj: Stressed? Stressed about what? Is it– is it about us? Did I do something?

Luna: No, no, rj, you didn’t do anything wrong. It’s just…

Rj: We’re okay? Does this have to do with your mom? Are– are you guys good?

Luna: Yeah, she’s part of it.

Rj: Okay. Well, let me– let me help. Hey, I’ve been told I’m a good listener.

Luna: You are. I mean, you’re the most wonderful guy, rj.

Rj: So, you– you’d tell me if you were upset with me, right? ‘Cause when I think about it, this all started the day after my granddad got married to donna, after that party. Ever since then, you’ve seemed really distant.

Luna: I’m sorry.

Rj: No, you have no reason to be sorry.

Luna: Yeah, I do.

Rj: What is it? Tell me. Tell me anything.

Deacon: What are you doing here?

Ridge: Well, I was talking to steffy, and you know, this girl is tough as nails, but she’s having a tough time. I mean, sheila breaking into her house, coming after her, and steffy having to put her down. So, tell me about this memorial.

Deacon: It’s not really any of your business.

Ridge: I know, but as a friend, I should tell you it’s a big waste of time and money.

Deacon: Well, it’s my time, my money. She meant something to me.

Ridge: Yeah. We both know that there was something wrong in her head. And her being gone, being out of our lives, it’s good for everybody.

Deacon: What if she isn’t gone, ridge? What if sheila isn’t out of our lives?

Steffy: I’m not surprised deacon’s saying crazy things about sheila. I mean, he’s the one who fell in love with that monster.

Finn: It was more than that. Deacon was freaking out when I got to the restaurant. Like, out of his mind, going on and on with strange ideas.

Steffy: Like what?

Finn: Nothing that made any sense.

Steffy: Okay, what did he say specifically?

Finn: Well, you know, deacon’s eccentric and quirky.

Steffy: Yeah, clearly. He dated sheila.

Finn: Well, now you can add paranoid and delusional to the list. Because get this, deacon is questioning whether or not sheila is actually dead.

Steffy: What?

Finn: Deacon’s convinced himself sheila may still be alive.

Billy: I hope you can understand that we have your best interests at heart.

Traci: Please, sit down. We’re just trying to help.

Ashley: I think I’ll stay standing, thanks. This is your idea of helping?

Billy: What do you want?

Tucker: I’d like to listen in.

Billy: Fine, if that’s what you call it.

Ashley: Well, isn’t this just peachy? The gang’s all here. So, this is an actual intervention, right? You included tucker, of all people. You must be desperate. And you agreed? What makes you think I’m gonna listen to anything he has to say?

Jack: Whatever he is doing here has nothing to do with us.

Tucker: That’s true. I came of my own volition. I wanted to speak with your family, but I think we all have the same thing in mind.

Ashley: So, it’s just a complete coincidence that you’re all staring at me with so much pity in your eyes?

Jack: No, none of us came here to trap you.

Traci: Jack’s telling the truth.

Ashley: It’s called a 51-50, when you try to put somebody away.

Tucker: Ashley…

Billy: I think it’s time to leave, tucker.

Ashley: Yeah, you know what? You don’t speak for me. Go ahead, tucker. What do you have to say for yourself?

Tucker: Everyone in this room is worried about you, ashley.

Ash: This is bad. This is so, so bad. Tucker can’t be there right now. What if she does what she’s planning on doing and she does it right this minute?

Ashley: So?

Jack: Ashley, just ignore tucker. He is leaving now.

Billy: Tucker.

Tucker: Ashley, your family loves you. They want what’s best for you. I think you should listen to what they have to say.

Ashley: So, you’re in charge of this little shindig, tucker? How do you feel about that, jack? I know. I bet you’re going to hold him responsible for this little get-together. But don’t think any of you are gonna get off the hook. I’m going to hold you all responsible for this ambush for a very long time.

Jack: Ambush? We came together for you, not against you, to discuss this before we approached you. You have my word.

Diane: Ashley, think about it. How could we have planned any kind of ambush if we didn’t know where you were or what time you were coming home?

Ashley: Please stop talking, diane. It makes my head hurt every time you open your mouth. You guys, I mean, honestly, the next time that you plan an intervention, could you please just run the guest list by me first?

Traci: Ashley, diane is concerned about you, too.

Ashley: Well, I’m just starting to choke on all this concern, traci.

Tucker: Ashley, do you recall coming to me recently and telling me you wanted to get back together with me, both professionally and personally?

Ashley: When was this exactly?

Tucker: And then do you also recall changing your mind and telling me you wanted nothing more to do with me, only to flip back yet again?

Ashley: Oh, god. Billy, weren’t you gonna show him the door?

Tucker: And then also your recent conversations with audra.

Ashley: Oh, audra. The town bicycle. She’s got a brain the size of a pea and you’re gonna take her word over mine?

Tucker: Okay, I’m gonna ask one question, and then, yes, I will leave. Uh, just today, you said to audra that I should be worried because she means to do me harm. Not she, audra. She, you. You were talking about yourself, right? As if ashley were someone else entirely. Do you deny saying any of that? If advanced lung cancer

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Audra: Thanks again.

Sally: You made it.

Audra: Hey.

Sally: Hi.

Audra: Hey. Of course I did. Um, I need this like you have no idea.

Sally: Oh. Sensing a tone.

Audra: What kind of tone?

Sally: Like an I need to vent before I explode tone. Which I have some experience with that. And we cannot let you explode.

Audra: Just please remember you asked for it. Oh, but I– I’m a mess. Okay, I am a total mess. My emotions are just all over the place. And, um, I– I– I just don’t– don’t know what to do. Um, I’m usually always in control. You know, always ahead of the curve. But this…

Sally: Tucker’s found a way to weasel his way back into your heart, even though you said you were absolutely done with him.

Audra: You know, hearing it out loud makes it worse.

Sally: What did he do now?

Audra: He asked me to marry him.

Ashley: Boy, this is embarrassing. Well, not for me. For you. I’m gonna sleep like a baby tonight and get on with my life, but all of you have to live with how you’ve treated me. And you should all be very ashamed of yourselves.

Jack: We just wanna get you through this.

Ashley: There’s nothing to get through.

Traci: That’s not true. Ashley, you’ve told me yourself.

Billy: Ashley, what tucker just said, is– is that true? Did all of those things happen?

Ashley: Would you please not treat me like I’m some kind of wounded bird? It’s insulting.

Tucker: Hey, I understand why you feel targeted right now.

Ashley: Do you really? Well, that’s because I am being targeted.

Tucker: Except that I can back-up everything I just said. Certainly the club has security footage of you entering my room uninvited when I wasn’t there. Uh, I have a text from you saying you wanted to get together and meet, followed by a text a short time later saying you never wanted to see me again. Now, I’d prefer not to have to produce that kind of evidence for your family, but if it will do some good–

Ashley: I think you should. I would actually like you to. I want them all to see how i entertain myself by toying with him and how his little ego just kind of laps it all up.

Tucker: This is what you said to audra. I wrote it down. Um, “I’m not who you think I am. Just tell me where tucker is so I can warn him. You have to keep tucker away from her.” Can you explain that to me? To all of us?

Ashley: You’re in my home now, buddy. How dare you interrogate me? And you’re all letting him.

Jack: This is not what any of us want. We wanna help you. Just explain to us what’s happening to you.

Billy: Ashley, so far all you’ve done is deflect and distract. There’s gotta be a reason for that.

Ashley: I have explained it all. You just are choosing not to believe it. And as far as what audra has said, I told you at the bar, tucker, I had a couple martinis on an empty stomach. I got a little silly, so sue me!

Billy: Okay, tucker, I think we’ll take up from here. Please, a little discretion.

Tucker: Yes, of course, but… I have to take that threat very seriously, no matter how much booze is involved.

Ash: Are you kidding me? What, I can’t even get off this stupid cot now? I hate you! You’re evil! Ashley! Ashley, wake up! Don’t you understand? She’s gonna kill tucker. She’s gonna blame it on audra, but she’s gonna murder him! Ashley! Ugh! Beyond covering grays my color needs to suit me.

Sally: I definitely did not see that coming. But since you’re here having a drink with me and not with him.

Audra: I might have choked.

Sally: Because the ring was so bright and shiny? But once you got your voice back, you said…

Audra: No.

Sally: Yeah, of course, you did.

Audra: Yeah, I’m– I’m not getting married, you know?

Sally: To him or to anyone?

Audra: No one. Like, why should I?

Sally: That is a conversation for the next drink. But for now, just– why don’t you tell me what you said?

Audra: Well, that yes, we have magic. But we don’t need marriage in order to be great. It might actually ruin us.

Sally: Okay, those are very strong words.

Audra: And since when have we ever been a normal couple? You know, trying to bend to that would be ridiculous. We wouldn’t be us anymore.

Sally: Yeah, I mean, I– I see the logic in that, but… I mean, tucker’s a romantic, seems like, and he adores you. And he definitely sees himself as the marrying type, even if you don’T. How did he take the rejection?

Audra: I’m not sure.

Sally: Well, you two just sound great at communicating.

Audra: I– I made it clear to him that this wasn’t a rejection of him. That we can still be a power couple, just without all the courthouse paperwork.

Sally: Did he buy that?

Audra: He was disappointed, but he didn’t push back.

Sally: I’m stunned. ‘Cause from all I’ve heard, he doesn’t really strike me as someone who takes no for an answer.

Audra: I mean, he did vow to stage more romantic proposals until I was ready to give in.

Sally: Well, he’s definitely in for a lot of rejection if you’re dead set against marriage. But other than that, that does sound pretty romantic. Every waking moment for tucker will be about pledging his undying love to you.

Audra: Yeah, except one thing. I truly believe that ashley is still on his mind.

Ashley: So now your girlfriend is saying I’m a danger to you? That sounds like slander. By the way, there was no threat.

Traci: Ashley–

Ashley: Except audra is clearly threatened by me.

Traci: Take a breath. We’re not the enemy.

Ashley: I have given you all the information you could possibly need. Whether you choose to believe it or not is on you. I can see you’re upset. I’m sorry. I admit it, I haven’t, um… I haven’t reacted well to any of this. Maybe it’s just time for us to close this chapter. I think we should go hash this out privately, and then we can wash our hands of each other for good.

Traci: No, no, no, you are not leaving this house right now.

Ashley: Please stop. I know that you’re here because you care about me. I’m grateful for that. Can’t we just talk? Please? I’ll explain my behavior, and then we can go our separate ways. I mean, that’s the way to end this.

Ash: Ashley! Listen to me! She’s out there right now asking to talk to tucker alone so she can kill him! You have to wake up so you can stop her! You’re our only hope! Ashley! Ashley!

[ Serene music playing ]

Sally: So, this is just a question. But is tucker really focused on ashley, or… are you just looking for a reason to turn him down?

Audra: I don’t need an excuse to not get married. It’s not like it’s mandatory.

Sally: Okay, yeah, no, that’s settled. Thank you. Okay, so then, what? He thinks that she has mental issues or that she’s faking it? I’m confused.

Audra: Yeah, so was I. Someone like ashley abbott doesn’t suddenly fall apart. You know, that’s why I thought it was a ploy to grab tucker’s sympathy. You know, but now I’ve seen first hand. Something is just off. She is not well, mentally or emotionally.

Sally: That’s a really big assumption. If you say that to the wrong person, it could get really messy.

Audra: Yeah, but I’m– I’m saying it to you. And I– I have my reasons. She was already spinning out after paris. She told anyone with a pulse how violent and evil tucker was. And then, you know, she suddenly accepts the truth. That tucker’s version of the fight is actually what happened, not her warped version of it. You know, when it all started, we thought that she was just exaggerating to make tucker look bad. But it turns out that, you know, she actually believed things happened the way she said.

Sally: That’s intense.

Audra: Okay, yeah, so she starts apologizing, right? Trying to reconnect with him, wanting to start over.

Sally: Wait, just like forget everything? Like all her assumptions and fury?

Audra: Yeah, and then she turns right around and tells tucker to stay away from her forever. She’s just…

Sally: Yeah, no, those are some very mixed messages.

Audra: Yeah, back and forth. You know, she goes from trying to mark her territory to pretending like she never said a word.

Sally: Yeah, I mean, that’s not normal behavior. Definitely not for ashley.

Audra: And then today, things got so wild. She kept talking about herself in the third person. She– she kept saying things like, oh, she’s pretending like she still loves tucker, but it’s all a lie. All she wants to do is hurt tucker. It is so bizarre. And then she said something about she thinks that that’s the only way we can protect ashley.

Sally: She? Okay, this gives me goosebumps.

Audra: And check this out. Then tucker showed up and she changed her entire demeanor. She pretended like it was all a joke. Look, I’ve been through bad breakups before, so I know how they can mess you up. But she’s beyond that.

Sally: Yeah, based on all this, you’re not wrong. Tucker probably is focused on ashley, but not in like a “I love you and I want you back way.” More like I’m worried and you need help. Man, this must be breaking her family’s heart.

Billy: Yeah, ashley, going off with tucker right now is not a good idea.

Traci: You absolutely need your family around you right now.

Jack: You don’t owe him anything. No reassurances, no explanations. You– you have nothing to discuss with him.

Ashley: You have no idea what I think or what I feel.

Traci: Then tell us.

Ashley: Why? So you can judge me?

Billy: We’re not trying to judge you, ash.

Ashley: Really? Even if I’ve decided I need to give my marriage another chance?

Jack: You don’t want him back. You can’T.

Ashley: Come on, tucker, let’s go. Let’s go talk.

Tucker: No, ashley, I’m sorry, they’re right. Meeting in private would be a mistake. Um… there is something I think you should know, that I think you all should know. I’ve asked audra charles to marry me.

Audra: You know, tucker is all invested in ashley’s sanity right now. It’s part of so many, if not all, the conversations that we have.

Sally: In between him pledging his love to you and buying you rings.

Audra: Yeah, actually, yes.

Sally: And that bugs you? Makes you jealous?

Audra: Not jealous, exactly, but it does make me wonder.

Sally: Go on.

Audra: Yeah, if tucker’s sudden marriage proposal was more about ashley and less about me.

Ashley: So, you asked her to marry you?

Tucker: Mm.

Ashley: Is the ink even dry on our annulment papers? What’d she say?

Tucker: All you need to know is that I proposed to her.

Billy: Okay, tucker. You’re done.

Tucker: Yeah, so… whatever we had, it’s in the past. We’re not gonna get it back. And I think that’s better for all of us.

Jack: Gee, why do I get the feeling that that’s the real reason you came by, to drop this little bomb?

Tucker: No, jack. In fact, I was on the fence about whether or not to tell you at all. To tell you. But I decided that if the notion that you and I might get back together sometime in the future is somehow contributing to your conflict, then i thought it would be best for you to know, for you all to know. No, I came here to make sure that you had your family’s support and that you all knew what the situation was, and i just sincerely hope, ashley, that you get the help you need.

Ashley: Oh, god.

Jack: As if we need you to tell us anything about our sister.

Diane: Okay, tucker. You’ve done your part. Now, do everyone a favor and just leave.

Jack: Ashley, please don’t get your back up. We are all on your side. Will you please, finally, let us in? ()


Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Sally: So, you think that tucker proposed to you because of ashley? I’m not really sure I see the connection.

Audra: Well, you know, that he was making a point. “Oh, hi, ashley. Clearly, I am unavailable and have moved on. Now, please go see a shrink.” And a message to me. “See how much I don’t love ashley and do love you.”

Sally: Wow. Yeah, I mean, that’s putting a lot of meaning into, will you marry me?

Audra: You know, I get why he’s concerned about her mental health. He feels responsible for whatever she’s going through. You know, he insisted that she was the center of his universe. Made a huge show of basically worshipping her. And so, they go off to their little honeymoon. It goes to pieces. And so, I think he feels like he’s the reason why she’s fallen apart.

Sally: I mean, after everything I’ve heard about tucker, I– I– I didn’t know he had it in him to feel bad about something like that.

Audra: Same. But he’s trying to play the good guy, you know? Pushing her to get help. But she’s just fighting it every step of the way.

Sally: Yeah, I mean, sometimes the people that need help are the last ones to admit it. But she has a family that loves her, and I feel like she would listen to them way before she would listen to tucker.

Audra: Yeah, I tried to convince him of that. I almost thought I did. But he just can’t let it go.

Sally: So, where is he now?

Audra: I know exactly where he’s at.

Sally: Well, wherever he went, he’s back now.

Audra: Hm.

Billy: Look, um, tucker’s timing was awful. It always is, but the fact that we are all on the same page as him, that says something, ash.

Ashley: Flip flopping on your opinion of tucker. Somebody get billy a straitjacket quick.

Traci: Ashley, ashley, stop it. Okay, we get that you’re angry. And I just have to believe you’re acting this way because deep down inside, you know we’re right. Think about it. Your threats to audra, you can claim that they’re a joke, but taken at face value, how would they look to you? That tucker has to be careful, and then talking about yourself in such a strange way.

Ashley: Why do you have to take everything I say so seriously?


Traci: There is no humor in suggesting that your ex has to be careful and that “she” is going to hurt him. What did these threats even mean? You told me that you were gonna get close to tucker and try to take his company away from him. Is that what these threats are all about? And how are you gonna steal tucker’s company?

Ashley: What I told you was in confidence, right? And it was a joke that you took and you twisted it into something else.

Billy: No, no, traci did the right thing. Okay, that’s information that we need to know as your family.

Ashley: Oh, right. I– I bet I’m gonna be a character in your next novel. Right, trace? The sister of the heroine, the deranged sister, who you have to stick in the tower so she can howl at the moon. Howl!

Traci: Oh, just stop it, ashley, stop.

Ashley: I don’t even know who you are.

Traci: Well, I’ll tell you. I am your sister who adores you, and i hate that I had to betray your confidence, but I’m terrified for you and I needed the family’s advice. These people, your family, who love you and care about you as much as I do.

Ashley: These people, so loving and so nurturing, as if this is my safe place.

Traci: Ashley, I only said what I did because I realized I can’t handle this myself. You’re having blackouts. This is so serious. And you promised me you would see a doctor.

Ashley: You didn’t give me a chance, though, did you, traci? You ran right to jack and billy and even diane. Talk about betrayal. I don’t think I can ever forgive you. I just want to know. I wanna hear it from you. Do you think I’m nuts?

Ash: You have to wake up. Please. She’s completely out of control, ashley. She’s even threatening to make me disappear. But she can’t do that, right? She’s not stronger than you. She can’t, right?

Ashley: To see you all looking at me like this, I’ve never felt so alone. Kerendia presents the abc’s of ckd.

Tucker: Hello, ladies. Hi.

Sally: Hi.

Tucker: Sally, right?

Sally: Yeah, tucker.

Tucker: Yes, that’s me.

Sally: Nice to meet you.

Tucker: Nice to meet you, finally, yeah.

Audra: So, where have you been?

Tucker: Oh, in my secret lair, doing the usual, you know, scheming, plotting. Being generally nefarious. You know how it is.

Sally: Yeah, naturally. Right, yeah. Well, I’m, uh, I’m actually on my way out, but it’s really nice to meet you.

Tucker: Nice to meet you.

Sally: And we’ll talk soon.

Audra: Yeah, okay.

Tucker: Good night.

Sally: Bye, good night.

Tucker: I would love a drink. Um, looks like I need to catch up with you, though.

Audra: Hm.

Tucker: Hi there. How are you? Uh, scotch. Neat. Double.

Audra: Water.

Tucker: Yeah.

Audra: Thank you. So?

Tucker: So, I went to the abbott house.

Audra: They didn’t throw you out?

Tucker: No, I was able to leave willingly. I did my best to let them know what the situation was with ashley.

Audra: Oh, I see. How did that go?

Tucker: Oh, a barrel of laughs, man. Thank you very much. When I got there, ashley was already there, and it appeared as if they were in the middle of an intervention.

Audra: Hm.

Tucker: Yeah.

Audra: That sounds brutal. But at least her family knows she has a problem and are trying to solve it.

Tucker: Except that a cup of tea and a warm shoulder to cry on is not gonna do it. She needs professional help. And the sooner, the better.

Audra: Right. So, you went there only to find ashley’s own family already has it under control. Yeah, no need for you to be there. Just an outsider in the way.

Tucker: Yes. Thank you, audra. As subtle as always.

Audra: Meanwhile, I was left venting to a friend.

Tucker: You vented?

Audra: Mm-hmm.

Tucker: What, pray tell, did you vent about? Not about little old me. You would have nothing to vent about me.

Audra: Oh, no. I had plenty to unload. How you just come with so much baggage. You know, how you think you know everything about me, when clearly you do not. How you’re romantic and charming. Just always choose just the wrong moment to prove that you’re a good man. Basically, I went on and on about how maddening and infuriating you can be.

Tucker: Mm-hmm. Well, what can I say? I’m a catch.

Traci: Ashley. This is not an attack. There is no one in this room who thinks you’ve lost your mind. What we think is that something serious is happening to you that we don’t understand. And we’re just trying to get control of it.

Jack: Whatever it is, we will deal with it.

Billy: Jack’s right, ashley. You know, we’re a full team here for you.

Jack: We will see that you get the help you need.

Ashley: Do you have any idea what this is doing to me? All the memories it’s bringing up. You know, about fairview. When my brain was being picked apart. My life was just being picked apart by strangers.

Traci: Okay, we’re not strangers. We’re your family. We love you.

Ashley: I know you say you want to help me, but the way you’re looking at me, I mean, it just makes me feel like you think I’m broken and like I’m just beyond repair.

Jack: Ash, I hate seeing you like this. I just want to take your pain away. We all do. But none of us can do that on our own. We’re just not equipped. For you to find yourself in a strange hotel room with no recollection of how you got there, that had to be terrifying. And it’s not something we can ignore. We can’t just hope that whatever caused the blackout will go away. Next time, you’ll wake up in an even worse place. Or god forbid, not wake up. And we have to deal with it now, before it gets worse.

Ashley: Worse? You know, it’s interesting that you should say that. I think everyone in here is aware of the sketchy situations you’ve found yourself in over the years. Are you sure you want to start pointing fingers?

Jack: If we’re talking about my use of painkillers, there’s an explanation for my actions. I sought help. I got clean.

Ashley: That any one of you could judge me is just too much. You are looking for trouble that just isn’t there.

Billy: No, we’re not looking for trouble. We see it. And I think you do too.

Traci: And this is about finding solutions and helping you.

Diane: You need to stop lashing out because you’re fearful and angry.

Ashley: I think I told you to not talk.

Billy: Let’s just back it up a little bit, okay?

Ashley: No, I don’t wanna stop this. Why should we? You want judgment, if that’s what you’re after? There’s plenty of it to go around. I think this evening just got interesting.

Tucker: Did you tell sally about my proposal?

Audra: It might’ve come up.

Tucker: Hm. And did you tell her as a result, you tore my heart out of my chest, threw it on the ground and stomped all over it?

Audra: I made it very clear to her that I didn’t turn you down. I turned down the idea of marriage.

Tucker: Yeah, you know, I’ve been thinking, though. Marriage, to me, would be a completely different animal, right? So, I’m thinking maybe she influenced you a little bit, nudged you towards saying yes.

Audra: Unlike you, she respects my decision.

Tucker: I respect your decision. I just don’t agree with it.

Audra: Well, you’re gonna have to learn how to live with it if you wanna be with me because, you know, I’m worth more than a trip to city hall or some big party.

Tucker: That you are.

Audra: Hm.

Tucker: I’m not gonna lie to you, though. It really hurt. When you said no, it just– I wanna spend the rest of my life with you, audra.

Audra: And all that is still on the table. But marriage is not.

Tucker: All right, what the hell. Here’s to us being unconventional.

Audra: Hey. I still want everything with you, okay?

Tucker: Okay.

Audra: Everything. I just, uh… this is what works for me.

Tucker: Then this is what you shall have.

Audra: So, um… do you wanna tell me more about what happened at the abbott house?

Tucker: No, no. No more. I’m done. Don’t need to. The guilt, weight, has been lifted. Whatever’s going on with ashley, the abbott’s will fix it. Moving forward with node-positive

Audra: You know, you never had anything to feel guilty about. You didn’t do anything wrong.

Tucker: Are you kidding? Who are you talking to here? But, you have my word. I’m letting it go.

Audra: Look at me in my eyes and say it.

[ Chair scrapes ]

Tucker: I’m letting it go.

Audra: And now you know ashley is officially her family’s responsibility.

Tucker: And you know ashley isn’t– oh, you didn’t want me to repeat that. And I want you to know, from this day, from this second forward, all my attention, all my focus, is gonna be on… this stunningly beautiful, unmarried woman who I’m just head over heels in love with.

Ashley: Come on, guys, bring it. Let’s see how you stand up to all this scrutiny you’ve been putting me under.

Diane: Ashley, please stop.

Ashley: Hey, diane, what was that name you went under when you were in los angeles? Wasn’t it taylor? Taylor, the friendly neighborhood realtor. You wanna talk about my sanity? Didn’t you have a mental breakdown? You faked your own death, bitch. And then you left your only son to grieve alone.

Diane: Okay, ashley, I did have a breakdown. And then I got help. And those years in therapy saved me. I have nothing to be ashamed of. There is no shame in getting help.

Ashley: Right, well, if this is the result of all of that therapy, I think I’m gonna pass. By the way, you are never, ever gonna be a real member of this family after what you did to kyle.

Jack: That’s enough.

Ashley: Oh, wait, I know what this is. I get it now. You poisoned them against me, didn’t you? You did. You wanted to get me locked away because you know that I see right through you.

Diane: You don’t really mean that.

Ashley: Oh, I do really mean that.

Jack: Diane cares about you. Whether you believe it or not, it is true.

Ashley: Jackie, how far do you think the resentment goes? How far back do you think it goes that you have for me? Do you think it started when you were just a little boy and you realized that I was actually our father’s favorite?

Billy: Okay, ashley.

Ashley: I mean, just how bitter are you?

Billy: It’s pretty clear that you wanna keep pushing buttons here and avoid the situation. Okay, but, uh, but we’re all here for you right now.

Ashley: Oh, thank you so much. It’s so painfully obvious why you would want to undermine me, little brother. You’re just so thrilled that I’ve been put on a lower peg than you, right?

Billy: You feel better? Yeah? ‘Cause you’ve taken a swipe at me now. You’ve taken a swipe at diane, jack. The only person you haven’t taken a swipe at is– is traci, because you can’t do that. Because she loves us all, unconditionally, and she doesn’t want anything from you. She’s only here to help you. So, can you admit that you need help?

Ashley: What if traci has some deep-seated jealousy for me? I mean, it probably goes back to when our father called me his beauty.

Diane: Ashley, that’s enough.

Ashley: Well, I mean, honestly, it was very insensitive of dad.

Diane: All right, all right, all right. You wanna do this? Fine. You and me, ashley, and we can trade insults all night long, and then maybe you’ll wear yourself out and stop hurting these people who love you.

Ashley: Uh, I can’t stand being in the same room with any of you. I’ve gotta get out of here.

Jack: No.

Billy: Whoa, hey.

Jack: Stop, no. You don’t wanna talk right now? Fine. We will all get some rest and calmly discuss this in the morning, but you’re not leaving.

Ashley: Get out of my way, jack. So what? I’m a prisoner in my own home now?

Jack: None of us want this. But if you won’t seek help for yourself, we will bring help to you.

Ashley: Who are you calling?

Ms. Abbott: Who are you calling, jack? Sharon, some other shrink? You will not put me back at fairview.

Ash: Oh, gosh.

Ms. Abbott: You hear me?

Ash: Ashley, please, you have to wake up. Ashley, right now. She’s going to take us all down with her. Please, I don’t want to leave you for good. Ashley! Ashley, wake up!

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Finn: What are you talking about, sheila isn’t dead?

Deacon: I know this sounds crazy, but what if, what if it were true?

Liam: So kelly left this guy at my place. I’m not sure bedtime would go as smoothly without it.

Steffy: Thank you. How could she forget this little guy? Oh, wait. Oh, it’s when you took her on a shopping spree and got her every single stuffed animal she could possibly want.

Liam: Not that she could possibly want. Just that she could carry. I have trouble saying no.

Steffy: Yeah, she has you wrapped around her finger.

Liam: Yeah. It’s a good finger to be wrapped around, though. You know something? This is, um… it’s kind of nice.

Steffy: What?

Liam: Just… not worrying that you and the kids are safe. Not having to leave here with a pit in my stomach. Life sure got easier with sheila gone for good.

Rj: So, sis, on a scale of one to ten, how stressed are you about hope for the future?

Hope: Are you kidding? I mean, I have surrounded myself with talent. My vision is clear. Yeah, I would be at about a ten.

Rj: Why? Why are you like that? We’re good. Everything’s good.

Hope: Look, I am appreciative, you know, that you and zende and luna, that you’re really going to step up.

Rj: But I feel like there’s a but coming.

Hope: Oh. Because I would be lying if I said I wasn’t worried. I mean, the last time thomas was off the line, it almost got shelved.

Rj: That’s not going to happen this time. Look, zende, luna, and I, we’re gonna have your back, and we’re a team, and we’re gonna look out for each other.

Zende: You wanna tell rj what happened between us?

Luna: I have to, okay? Keeping this secret from the man I love is killing me.

[ Knocking on door ]

Poppy: Luna, what’s wrong? What’s going on?

Luna: I’ve made up my mind, mom. I’m telling rj about my night with zende.

Hope: I really appreciate the support and concern.

Rj: That’s what family’s for. Plus, I totally believe in your vision.

Hope: While I’m not going to lie, thomas leaving is a bit concerning for the line. But I also think we have a good game plan. I mean, I have my super talented little bro helping out on the designs. Not to mention, zende already knows my vision and my style. And he’s worked very closely with thomas. And now, luna will be working closely with him. I think it would be a great experience for her. I mean, zende has so much to offer.

Poppy: I thought you agreed you were going to keep that night a secret.

Luna: I’ve been trying, okay? I mean, I hate the thought of messing up rj and zende’s relationship.

Poppy: Well, what about messing up your relationship with rj?

Luna: I’ve been basically lying to him, mom, and it’s killing me. I mean, this is not who I am. This is not the woman that you raised me to be.

Poppy: Luna, just– just think about this.

Luna: No, mom, please stop. You can’t talk me out of this, okay? Neither of you can. I mean, rj deserves to know the truth, and I’m– I’m gonna tell him. And there is nothing that either of you can say to stop me.

Liam: Thank you.

Steffy: Yeah.

Liam: So, how’s finn? I’m playing nice. I’m just, uh… I don’t know, curious if going to this memorial got sheila out of his system.

Steffy: You know he’s had some kind of, like, primal connection to sheila. That, I’ll never understand.

Liam: ‘Cause it’s not logical.

Steffy: You already know that I wasn’t happy about finn going to sheila’s memorial.

Liam: I do know. And why would you be? It’s kind of silly. He should have been here with his wife and his family.

Steffy: Well, he needed to be there. Liam, he got closure. It’s finally over. And you’re right. We don’t have to worry about sheila anymore.

Finn: Deacon, what are you talking about?

Deacon: Listen, I know– I know this sounds crazy, okay? But what if… what if she’s still alive?

Finn: You hear yourself right now, deacon? Okay, sheila, she died in my home. There was paramedics. There was police. We just had her memorial service. You went to the crematorium.

Deacon: I know.

Finn: Then how could you possibly think that sheila’s alive?

Deacon: It doesn’t make sense. I saw her face myself. I said goodbye. The person who was being cremated… had ten toes. Ten toes, finn.

Rj: It’s no secret. Um, there’s been tension between zende and me, but it was because, you know, he thought it was unfair that I got to work on granddad’s line. But it’s okay. We’re fine. That’s in the past now.

Hope: Well, I’m sure he feels the same way.

Rj: Yeah. I think he’s a very talented designer, and I think I can learn a lot from him.

Hope: Okay. So then, how do you feel about zende and luna working together?

Rj: I– I think learning from zende is really good for luna right now.

Luna: Do you know what it’s like to lie to the person that you love? Mom, it’s torture. And I can’t do it anymore.

Poppy: Honey–

Luna: No, mom, please stop trying to talk me out of doing what you know is right.

Poppy: I won’T. I let you down, sweetheart. And it breaks my heart. I’m giving up the mints. I’m not taking them anymore. And I’m also done pressuring you into not following your heart. So, if you want to tell rj about what happened, then you should. I am so sorry, sweetheart.

Liam: Well, as the mother of my child and someone I… happen to care about, I just hope you don’t feel like you’re going through this alone.

Steffy: Thank you for caring about me, but I’m– I’m not alone, liam.

Liam: Good. Still think finn going to that memorial’s kind of messed up, but okay.

Steffy: Okay. Well, I think finn is just trying to process everything the best he can, and he is determined to put sheila behind us. And honestly, I feel as though I’m more patient with him, knowing that sheila is gone. That she is never coming back.

Finn: Deacon, I know it’s hard to say goodbye. And look, on– on some level, I feel the same way, but… what you’re saying and what you think you saw, you most likely–

Deacon: I didn’t think. I know what I saw, finn. I was there. I know what I saw. I asked to witness the cremation. I didn’t want to leave sheila alone. And frankly, I wasn’t ready to say my final goodbyes. I looked at her. I looked at her, and it was sheila. And then the attendant, he asked me if I wanted to press the button. And, man, that was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. And the cremator doors, they opened, and the box started moving in. But it got jostled and the sheet that was covering her body, it slipped off and it exposed her feet and that’s when I saw it. That’s when I saw that she had ten toes. Skin-carving next level hydration?

Hope: Well, I am glad to hear that you and zende are on better terms. Rj, I mean, you two, you’re the future of this company. You are the next generation of forrester.

Rj: And we are going to continue to make sure that hope for the future is a success.

Hope: Thank you. Honestly, I was a little nervous to do this without thomas again, but with your support, I am feeling much more at ease.

Rj: Good.

Hope: And I’m excited for luna. I think she’s going to be a big part of this collaboration.

Rj: You think so? I mean, she’s– she’s one of a kind. I mean, she has a mind for business, and she has an eye for fashion. Not only that, she has an insane amount of work ethic. Those are her bad points. I swear. She’s got a great heart, and she’s incredibly honest. I think you’ll love that about her. And… she’s been a light in my life and I’M… we are now very lucky to have her.

[ Luna sighing ]

Zende: Your mom loves you very much.

Luna: Yeah, and I love her, too. And, um, I’m really grateful that she stopped trying to talk me out of telling rj the truth. Listen, I… I realized that this could have a serious impact on your relationship with rj, and I hate that. I– listen, I– I tried to keep this secret for as long as I could, for both of your sakes.

Zende: And I appreciate that so much, but… I agree with poppy. You should tell rj the truth. I can see how much the secret is eating at you, and I don’t want that. I care about you too much.

Liam: Still feels surreal, you know? Sheila carter, gone forever.

Steffy: Yeah, it’s still gonna take some, uh, time to process for both finn and me.

Liam: Where is the good doctor?

Steffy: Oh, yeah, he ran out to meet up with deacon. Deacon called him. He sounded really upset. I guess he’S… I don’t know, struggling with sheila’s death.

Liam: Wow.

Steffy: Yeah.

Liam: I don’t really get how someone like deacon could come to find anything redeemable about sheila. Like, deacon and I, we’ve had our issues in the past, but I always admired his… his street smarts, his ability to read people, and yet…

Steffy: Yeah, I have no sympathy for that man, so…

Liam: Well, apparently, finn does.

Steffy: Finn is a doctor through and through. He cares about people, even when they don’t deserve it. Look, he’s gonna go see deacon, and that’s it. Hey, finn already told me. He said we’re done talking about sheila once and for all.

Finn: Okay, deacon, listen to me, okay? As a doctor, I experience death a lot. And for some families who are present when they have their loved ones take their last breath, it’s not uncommon for them to think they saw something, like an eye flutter or a finger twitch. One time, a wife thought her deceased husband had a smile. Okay? It’s sometimes a way of our mind processing.

Deacon: I know what I saw. I saw ten toes. I saw it. I saw it with my own eyes. And then I– I– I tried to get the guy to stop the process.

Finn: Yeah, you need to get ahold of yourself. You’re freaking out.

Deacon: Yeah, I am freaking out, ’cause I cannot explain this. Do you understand? I looked at her. It was sheila. I looked with my own two eyes. There were ten toes. What if it wasn’t sheila that was cremated?

This is not just a stop

for allergy meds.

Rj: It’s kind of wild, isn’t it? You know, when I first got back to L.A., I was like, I don’t want anything to do with the family business. I want to do my own thing.

Hope: Any regrets?

Rj: No. I’m lucky. I mean, look at me. I get to work with my talented sister, you.

[ Both chuckle ] I get to design with my cousin. I get to build something I love with the woman I love. I’m excited. I think– I think we’re gonna make hope for the future even better now because of what we all share. Transparency and trust.

Zende: I’m so sorry this is happening to you.

Luna: Yeah, me too.

Zende: You’re a good person. There’s nothing you could do to change that. Rj knows this. You won’t lose him.

Luna: God, everything was so perfect. From working at forrester to falling in love with rj and your family accepting me.

Zende: Now, it’s a nightmare.

Luna: Yeah, because of my mom’s mints.

Zende: Regardless of whatever was happening, I shouldn’t have come onto my cousin’s girl. And I never would have allowed what happened between us that night, had I known that you weren’t yourself. And… if I didn’t have these feelings I have for you…

Luna: Zende.

Zende: I’m not coming onto you, I swear. I’m just being honest. I guess what I’m trying to say is, if… rj doesn’t handle it well when you tell him what happened between us, and I truly hope he does. But if for some reason he blames you, I’m here.

Steffy: Baker stopped by forrester the other day. He confirmed sheila’s death was an act of self defense.

Liam: I mean, no surprise there, but… it’s gotta be a relief. Help you heal, help you move on.

Steffy: Yeah, it is. I just wanted to tell you. Okay, we need to really stop talking about sheila. So, how are you? And don’t deflect, okay? Be real with me.

Liam: I’m good. I’m hanging in there. I’m, uh… um, focusing on beth and kelly and work. Actually, I don’t know. I think maybe, uh… maybe I’m doing… some soul searching. I’m asking myself some… kind of uncomfortable questions.

Steffy: Like what?

Liam: Like, am I the kind of man that I would ever want to see either of them with? Not really. I was accused of waffling over the years, you know? And I’m guilty as charged, the way that i went back and forth between you and hope over and over and over again. I gotta figure out who the hell I am. And maybe… maybe I just want to be dad for a little while, you know? Be the best– be the best dad that I can be for my daughters.

Steffy: Liam, you are a great father. I’ve seen your growth, your self-awareness. You should be proud of yourself.

Liam: Thank you. That means a lot, coming from you.

Deacon: I am not making this up. When I saw her feet, I saw ten toes. That image is burned inside my brain. Now, you tell me, how there could be ten.

Finn: Because there weren’T. None of this is real. Ten toes? Deacon, your mind is playing tricks on you.

Deacon: It keeps popping into my head again and again and again and I can’t get it out.

Finn: Yeah, you’re upset. You’re obviously grieving. Deacon, you and sheila, you had planned this whole life together. Some people saw her as a monster. You saw her as someone worthy of love. And you’re devastated. But you have got to let this go. There is no way that sheila wasn’t at the crematorium. You said you saw her yourself. It’s time to say goodbye. I know it’s hard to accept, but sheila, she’s dead.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Uh, I’m sorry, Amir. This must be an oversight.

Two, two months in a row?

Yeah, things have been a little hectic, you know, having a new baby and all.

Okay, hey, listen, my wife, she’s, she’s gonna be home any minute, and um, we’ll just get this cleared up and get it to you today, okay? Okay, thanks.

They must have forgotten all about paying the rent.

Hey, don’t you worry about it, little guy. Mommy’s got a lot on her mind.

I mean, look at your face. Mommy just takes one look at you and all the things on her mind go right out the window. But don’t you worry, we’ll get this all squared away. Hey, sorry I’m late. I was knee deep in research about your case. And? Did you find a way to get me out of this nightmare marriage? Before we get started, do you mind if we just take care of my retainer fee first?

Oh, sure. Sorry, I completely slipped my mind.

There. Sent. Okay, thank you. So, did you find anything? Anything that’ll help push through this divorce? Like a loophole or something? Unfortunately, it’s just the opposite. The law is in favor of Bobby’s case. Well, when a party suffers from a mental illness like a brain injury or some other mentally debilitating condition, the law states that they lack the cognitive ability to enter into a contract.

I mean even If they do sign a contract in that condition, it’s avoidable.

The article on Stefan’s arrest is gaining a lot of traction. I even posted it to four different social media platforms to get even more traffic. Who’d have thunk it? I knew Stefan DiMera had a dark side, but drug dealer was not on my bingo card. I know, right? I wonder how Chadwick is dealing with the news that his brother from another mother is a pill pushing lowbrow headed to the Who’s Go.

Come on, Leo. What? I just hope after our readers have done rubbernecking at Stefan’s story, they detour over to my Lady Whistleblower column. It may be my last. Hey, things will look up, Leo, okay? They always do. Yeah. Hey, I gotta go check on another account, so I’ll see you later. Okay, see ya. Hey, where have you been?

I feel like I’m walking on a cloud. With two girls, almost like a free man. You are never going to be locked up again. Ever. God, I love your optimism. And you’re undying support. And you will always have been.

D. A. DiMera. Fancy meeting you here. Likewise. Actually, I have some news about your case, and you might as well hear it from me.

Dammit, E. J., stop ignoring me. Have you seen the price of DiMera stock? It’s plummeting by the second. Now you say that you care about this company. Well, prove it. Call me back, now. Before we lose our family fortune. Ugh. Oh, could this take it any worse? What the hell is wrong with you?

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

okay? I’m good. Really? Because you, you look kind of razzled. Yeah, well, uh, it’s nothing I want to get into right now. How is the article on Stefan doing? Great. Take a look. Oh. That’s good news, at least. Hey, Everett. Lightbulb moment. I was thinking I could do a follow up human interest story about a family who was immediately impacted by the drugs that Stefan was trafficking through the bistro.

You know what, Leo? Until I, um, say it, why don’t you stay in your lane? Ah! Snark you much? Sorry, Leo. Well, since you are clearly singing the blues today, I will steer clear. Tell me what’s wrong, Everett, please. Not now. I’m trying to work, you know?

Are you as stubborn as you are psychotic? Sign the divorce papers, damn it!

As much as I believe. You belong behind bars and, uh, Anne, make no mistake, I would have relished putting you there. Our forensic team has examined the images of the perpetrator and have confirmed that you did not shoot Detective Michaels. They saw the difference in the tracksuit pants, right? There was a slight difference, but a difference nonetheless.

I’ve just come from my office where I have officially dropped the charges against you. Congratulations. Oh my god. Did that just happen? You made it happen. You did. You were determined and tenacious and you found proof. And I am so, I’m so proud of you. I couldn’t have done it without you. Did you hear that, little angel?

Your daddy’s a free man. We’re gonna celebrate. Look, I know that my freedom is the big news here, but uh, I’d just like to point out that I, Xander Cook was just congratulated by that frig E. J. Zemera.

You actually told Holly that she’s a bad influence on Rachel? Yep, I did. Oh, the audacity. I mean, what are you, picking on a teenage girl that almost died? She’s upstairs in her room crying right now. Oh, boo hoo, poor Holly. She’s such a drama queen. Drama queen? Yes. That is rich coming from you. Oh God, let’s face it, Nicole.

No mother wants her child hanging out with a drug addict. She’s not a drug addict. Okay, well, how would you know? You had no idea she was doing drugs before? Well, she’s a teenager, Kristen. Okay, she made a mistake. Okay, she made a mistake, yeah. And instead of taking responsibility for it, she covered it up and lied about it.

Blamed Rachel’s big brother, Tate, for it all. And, and now he has no freedom. He got beaten up in prison. Okay, well, she was unconscious when all that happened, okay? Spare me the fine print. Your daughter was doing drugs behind your back. And when I called her on it, a little brat went tattling to mommy. I have every right to keep my daughter away from that little liar.

Okay, you just stop yourself right now. Look, if you want to go after someone, you come after me, alright? Alright. You wanna fight? You wanna fight? No, I do. Okay, let’s do it. Come on. Let’s go.

Very impressed to find out that you have a 30, 000 limit. My God, you can’t keep doing this. It’s costing me a fortune as it is just to put you up with this sailor man. Oh, my suite by the way, major upgrade from that dingy little room I used to share with Gweny. Lovely view, very comfy king size bed. Oh my God, when is it going to end?

Honey, it ends whenever you’re ready to give up your baby. To give that precious little boy back to his real mother. Hey. Hey. I thought I heard you. How was your day? Exhausting. Yeah, well, I, uh, just got you down. And I thought maybe you and I could talk. Oh, sounds serious. It is. It’s um, it’s about our finances.

I came home from our breakfast and I found this under our door.

Would you please? Just sign the damn divorce papers. You two are still married? Jada and Everett. Hashtag Jefferet. Married. Juicy. Apparently, the divorce decree was never officially finalized. Yeah, because Bobby never signed the papers and he won’t do it now. Wait, who is Bobby? He is. Jada and Bobby? Hashtag jobby.

To make you feel powerful, Kristen, punching down. Punching down? Yeah. All I did was tell your daughter to stay away from mine. That is it. Well, from now on, if you have anything to say to Holly or about Holly, you come to me first. You got it? Oh, yeah. Well, I think I pretty much covered it. Oh, you have? Oh, and hey, guess what?

God, it can’t be easy having a druggie for a daughter. Especially one who pretends she’s Snow White singing to animated birds while everyone kisses her feet. The facade is crumbling, honey. Lo and behold, Holly is just as selfish and manipulative as her mother. Oh. Oh, we’re going there, are we? Yeah, we will go there.

Yeah. Comparing daughters to mothers? It’s a very dangerous place for you to be, Kristen. I feel really, really bad for Rachel. Because she has an evil serpent for a mother. Stinking her fangs into innocent people. Spreading her poison all over town. And you know what it looks to me? Huh? That Rachel is bound to be a bad seed.

Just like her mummy. Wow.

I feel terrible. I, I must have just slipped my mind. I figured. You know, I’ve never even been late on rent before, so this Actually, you were late last month too. But I know you’ve had a million things on your mind. Yeah, I really have. But it’s not just that, it’s, you know, the, the expenses are increasing.

It’s the formula, the diapers. No, electricity and gas. But look, I promise you, I’m going to be more on top of it. Look, right now, I am going to send the landlord the rent. And with my caseloads increasing, this shouldn’t be a problem. And at some point, my business will pick up. Yes. You know what? But this is what we should do.

We should make a plan. A family budget. Great. I can do that. I can make a, a spreadsheet at work tomorrow. No, no, no. Actually, you know what? We can, uh, kind of do this together, you know? Like, uh, look. It’s not that hard. We can kind of, uh, put a list of all our family expenses together. Right? So, uh, Here, I’ll give you that.

Oh, you know what? It’s okay. I’ll take care of it. Just hold that thought. You

said you would sign the papers. Yes. As myself. You are yourself. Listen, just, just sign Robert Stein. Okay? So we can just get this over with. You don’t want to be married to me. And I don’t want to be married to you. It’s just a signature. No one will even know or care.

I’m sorry. I can’t. I can’t. I can’t sign those. Not the way that you want me to. Oh my god. Uh, I’m sorry, just so that I’m clear. Everett is Bobby. Bobby is Everett. And wait, you two were an item when you were in Seattle. Did you know him as Bobby? Don’t go there, Leo. How can I not go there? Lady Whistleblower has been starving for scoop, and now here comes a triple fudge sundae served up with sprinkles.

Leo! Huh? Just don’t go there, okay? Just So what’s it gonna be, Bobby? I mean really, how long are you going to be torturing me with this?

This may be the best cheeseburger I’ve ever eaten in my entire life. And that’s because everything tastes better with a side of freedom. So true. Incredible. Although, what’s with your obsession with cheese? It’s like you’re a little mouse who can’t get enough. You’re only saying that because I asked you to bring me string cheese in bed one time.

Once. More like you woke me up and demanded that I bring you string cheese at midnight three different times. Well, I was breastfeeding Victoria. I couldn’t exactly get up and go get cheese. And nobody’s waking up tonight. We’re gonna sleep like babies now that this whole nightmare is over. Actually, it’s not completely over.

You keep my daughter out of this. Unlike Holly, Rachel is not a screw up. You know, her only mistake is that she looked up to someone who is unworthy of her admiration. Unworthy of her admiration? What are you talking about? Holly has been nothing but kind and loving to Rachel, and Rachel is nothing but an entitled little brat.

Rachel is not a brat. Yes, she is, and she needs to come with a warning label, just like her mother. Felony after felony. Okay, you know what? I do. Let’s do it. You kidnapped Daniel, you blackmailed Sammy, you stole Teresa and Brady’s fetus and inserted it in yourself. That’s crazy, that’s disgusting, yes it is.

You know who I left the baby stealing from? You, Nicole, you. Yes, you stole EJ and Sammy’s baby, you lied to Daniel about how your baby died, and you blamed it all on Jennifer. And you broke their relationship up. Yeah, but you wanna know the difference between you and me? What? I actually regret it. Oh, ho, ho, ho.

I am trying to turn my life around. Oh, well, keep on turning, sweetheart, and maybe you’ll spin your way all the way down to hell where you belong. Oh, my God. You know, I haven’t told you the worst part about you. Oh, goody. What you did to Eric. Okay, I can’t wait to hear this. Oh, I bet. You drugged him. And you had sex with him, and there’s a word for that, and I can’t even say it because you totally disgust me.

Oh, and then you go parading around town wearing a mask, impersonating me so you could seduce Brady. Bad news for you. The only reason Rachel exists is because Brady had sex with you, thinking it was me. Okay, don’t you do this to me! Stop it! Stop it! Both of you! Stop it! Stop it! You’re such a liar! You’re a liar!

Stop it! Both of you! Stop it! What is going on here? Stop it!

I’m guessing he just needed a diaper change. All sparkly clean now. It’s been a big time with me. Here’s the spreadsheet so far. Here, take a look. Okay, rand electric, gas, food, personal stuff, hair, manicure, clothes. Yeah. That look about right? Yeah, looks, looks all good. Yeah, but what’s missing? I can’t really think of anything off the top of my head.

Well, something’s not adding up right. Okay. Oh, uh oh. I’m guessing he’s getting hungry. I’m gonna go feed him.

This isn’t personal, Jada. We are still married. I take that very personally. Just, what’s the big deal? Okay, just sign it Robert Stein. It’s just a technicality. No one will even care. You can move on with your life and I can move on with mine, okay? Well, wouldn’t that be forgery detective signing somebody else’s name?

No, because he is Robert Stein, legally. Are you? Leo, shut up and just stay out of this. I’m sorry, I I can’t sign it. Not right now. Damn you. Jada, wait.

What do you mean it’s not over yet? Night after night, in that jail cell, I kept trying to figure it out. I mean, I knew I hadn’t shot Harris. But the evidence just kept stacking up against me, as well you know. Well, when you got arrested, you thought that somebody had framed you. Right, and I still do, now more than ever.

I mean, whoever set me up, they did a bang up job, didn’t they? Only question is, Why me?

Stop. Stop. Is this the example you both want to set for your daughters? My God. What if I hadn’t walked in when I did? And honestly, Kristin, a grown woman attacking a teenage girl. Thank you for standing up for Holly. Oh, please. Did you hear what your precious wife was saying about your niece? It was obscene.

There’s a big difference here, Kristen. She said those things to you, whereas you fired your missiles right at Holly’s face. Are you kidding me? You kidding me? So she gets a pass because she didn’t tear Rachel to shreds behind her back? Nicole is my wife. And you will show her some damn respect. She’s a scheming gold digger.

And always has been. And you’re not a homicidal maniac! Enough! Enough! Kristen, let me make this very clear. If you are unable to get along with my wife, you will find another place to live.

Ten whole ounces. You wolf that down. Hopefully that can last him out for a little while. Good. Can you sit down and go through this with me now? Um, yeah, of course I can. Definitely. But I just noticed that Jude’s completely out of diapers. So I’m gonna run and go get some. Are you sure? Because I thought we had another package.

Nope. All out. I’m going to be right back. And, grab some diapers. Love you. Damn, where can all my money be going?

I don’t even have a horse in this race, and I am breathless. I can only imagine what this is doing to you. This whole thing

is a nightmare. It’s a nightmare, with Stephanie, right in the middle of it. Poor thing. The two of you, flittering around town like a pair of lovebirds, then all of a sudden, wham! You careen into a glass window, feathers everywhere, no one saw it coming. Except, I’m not the victim. No matter how you try to spin this, I am the bad guy in this situation.

I mean, Jada thinks I’m a two timing bastard, Stephanie is debating whether I’m a two timing bastard, or a nutjob, I mean, either way. She’s lost trust in me. I hate this. I hate myself. Everett Everett. Come on, man. If you don’t remember you don’t remember stopping so hard on yourself. Look, you are a good guy.

Who’s going through an identity crisis. Hey, sometimes I feel like I need a lobotomy, and I am just one person with one name and one set of rotten memories. I can only imagine what it would be like to be two people with two sets of rotten memories.

Appreciate the support, Leo.

We all need somebody to listen to our side of the story, right?

Speaking of stories, I mean this really delicious one just fell into my lap and if Lady Whistleblower could write about it, I, well I promise, I promise I will be, I will be very, very gentle with the story and respectful and Are you out of your mind? What? Are you out of your mind? No. Drop it, Leo. I am. I’m sorry.

Okay, but we Okay, but Okay, I’m gonna get out of here so you can clear your heads. I’m sorry. Bobrit, I want you to know I am here for you. But I have to say, I do agree with Jada. You are not going to be able to move forward until you put this behind you. Get it figured out. Otherwise, you’re never going to get Stephanie back.

And it is obvious you are head over heels in love with her. Heartbroken. I have feathers everywhere.

I know the feeling.

Thank you for filling me in on the divorce snafu. Trusting me enough to open up about it. Yeah, well, I know this can’t be easy for you either. I mean my goodness, it’s just, when you thought that things couldn’t get more jaw dropping, you find out that the guy you’re involved with is still married. To me.

Yeah. Yeah, it’s been pretty shocking.

Hey. Listen. I’m really sorry that I bit your head off. More than once. I realize that I’ve been really just taking all my anger out on you. Well, I can’t imagine. What you went through when your marriage ended and what you’re going through now. Yeah, but still, it’s, it’s no excuse, Stephanie. You are a victim here too.

So what do you say? Do you think maybe you can forgive me for the awful things that I said? The thing is, someone went to a lot of trouble to set me up, right? And they did it oh so cleverly. Starting with that phone call. Hello?

Xander Cook. Yeah, who’s this? I have a job for you. What kind of job? I have someone who must be eliminated.

And then, obviously, someone duplicated my jogging outfit. And Planted that gun in our apartment. And they put the money in your bank account. That’s an awfully big expense, right? Whoever it was, they, they wanted to take me down big time. Damn it, I just, there’s gotta be someone who knows me, someone with money.

Clyde? It’s possible. I mean, obviously there’s no love lost between him and me. And he had motive for offing Harris, yeah. He could’ve financed this, but, but why pin it on me? I mean, I haven’t had any contact with that bastard in years. It seems odd that he’d go to such lengths to Set me up.

The Spectator article said that Stefan was doing Clyde’s bidding through the Bistro. So maybe Stefan hired the hitman. Maybe he knows something. I’m gonna visit the jail. See if I can get in to see Stefan. You sure that’s a good idea?

Who do you think you are? You don’t own this house. And I’ve been a mayor longer than you have.

Look, Kristen. Mm hmm. This is a big house. Why don’t we just agree to keep our kids away from each other? Alright? Fine. Good. That settles that. Now, I’m leaving. I need to head to DiMera. Show some leadership. The board has made it clear, Stefan is out as head of DiMera, and I need to take the reins. Can you do that?

Can you step back in and still be DA? I could. The board does need an interim CEO immediately. Someone with a family name. Ugh. I’m told he wants to travel the world with Anna, doesn’t want that kind of responsibility at this stage in his life. Chad’s never expressed interest and Johnny is just far too young and inexperienced.

Hello. There’s a DiMera standing right here. Oh, you’re serious? Oh, my darling sister. No, no, no. I don’t think so.

Why would it be a bad idea for me to see Stefan? Oops. Because you’re all free and clear now. I mean, don’t you think it’s a bad idea to go digging around? It’s like poking the bear. I think I have to. I mean, I have to figure out who did this to me, Sarah. No.

We have to. Because we’re in this together. Thank you. I mean some. And tomorrow I’ll see about getting into the jail to visit Stefan. As long as you promise me one thing. Anything. When this is all over, I want you to bring me cheese and bed as much as I want without complaining. Every. Single. Night.

Okay, I’m off. Can I trust the two of you to be here alone? Actually, why don’t I go with you? And you can drop me off at the town square. Because after all the fun I’ve had today, I could use some retail therapy, and then maybe we can have dinner out. Hmm. Perfect. I’ll meet you in the car. Actually, I’m gonna go check on Holly and let her know we’re heading out.

Sounds good. Okay. Bye. Goodbye to you too, little brother.

Yes, Mr. Shen. This is Kristen DiMera. I think you and I need to have a talk. I really let you have it. And like I said, it was all misguided anger, Stephanie. You’re not to blame for any of this. And I believe you when you said that you had no idea that Bobby was married. So I really hope that you’ll forgive me.

If not now, someday, when you’re ready. I’m not gonna lie, those things you said, it really hurt. I know you were coming from a place of pain. You weren’t trying to hurt me. I forgive you. Of course. I know you were only trying to protect yourself. We just process things differently. Yeah. You’re the calm and rational one, and I blow my top.

Total hothead. Oh, believe me, I’ve, I’ve had my moments. Not that I would know. I’ve been, I’ve been so wrapped up in my own world and all the things happening that’s messing it up that I didn’t even take time to think about how this was affecting you.

Yeah, it’s been rough.

I’m sure. So, tell me the truth. Aren’t you furious with him? Yes, I am.

Half the time. The other half I keep thinking about what he must be going through. So you believe his story? I don’t know. But I do feel for him. You know, losing chunks of your life, your identity, it must be terrifying. And he has nobody. Except you.

You still have feelings for him, don’t you?

If only it were so black and white.

There’s no escaping you. Is there, Robert Stein?


Doctor Evans. This is Everett Lynch. I need to see you.

Uh, is this really that urgent? I was about to get a pedicure when you beckoned. Oh, you had a pedicure just last week. I know, I paid for it. Yes, but if I wait too long, my feet get hard and crusty, and I need them to be soft and smooth like a baby’s bottom. My baby comes first, pal. Look, just cut me a little break, okay?

June needs diapers, wipes, food. You should probably be on a budget. I can’t. Eric wants to, but I can’t keep hiding your crazy self indulgent expenses. Meanwhile, I have drained my bank account paying rent, which was late for the second time. Look, you’re working now. You’re doing legit reporting. I saw that piece on Mayor Price.

What did you think? It was good, actually. Wow, did you just not insult me? I’m shocked. I did just not insult you. You’re actually, you’re a decent writer. And look, you’re paid by the article, right? And they’re giving you more assignments now, I’ve noticed. Well, those assignments cost money, too. See, I had to finagle my way into Mayor Price’s welcome home party by posing as a flower delivery person.

And you paid for the flowers? Well, no. Chad did. But at that faboo shindig, I managed to spill champagne all over my shoes. I ruined them. And girl, new Ferragamos do not come cheap. Come on, Leo. No, really, you are such a talented writer. And your features, I mean, they are just taking off. Lady Whistleblower is practically a household name now.

Come on, please, I’m just asking. I’m really talking to you, though. Please. Well, I do offer a unique perspective, and that does make my career outlook rosy.

And because of my fondness for your son, And because I want his diapers to be ultra absorbent so that his booty can be smooth and soft like my pedicured feet. I will cut your allowance by ten percent. I was thinking forty. Fifteen. Thirty five.

I’m feeling generous, but only because you complimented my writing. Why don’t we meet in the middle and say twenty five percent? Steel. No. What? You have no idea what this means to me. Okay.

I don’t get this. Something is not right here. Sloane must have some big expenses she’s not sharing with me. I’m gonna get to the bottom of this.

geez. What did you just– you’ve been planning this, or something like this, all along. Do I need to refresh your memory? ‘Cause I wasn’t the one who started all this. Yeah, I know, I know, I know. It’s just, I think that you’ve had this on your mental back burner since you took my magazine away and gave it to carly. And we all know how that worked out. Oh, I mean, have I been thinking about you? Have I been fantasizing? The truth is I have. Yeah. I really have. About you losing all your money, about you losing your looks, and getting convicted of a nameless crime that gets you sent to prison. You remember, like you sent me. God, you look like you were mugged by a small army. Are you sure it was only two people? Yeah. Those guys might not have killed me, but this ice might. It’s not that cold. It’s ice. By definition, it’s cold. Yeah, well, the ice machine on this floor was broken, which is appalling. That’s what you find appalling, a broken ice machine? I had to go down a floor to get the ice, and it was melting by the time I got it to the towel. And yet, when placed against the human body, it’s still plenty cold. Does the fbi know that all it takes to get one of their agents to spill his guts is a couple of ice cubes? I like to keep some things to myself.

[ Chuckles ] Good idea. All I’m saying is that when I owned the metro court, that ice machine, it would have been maintained. What? Nothing. I’m just grateful for the medical expertise. Good. Well, I went to nursing school, though I didn’t graduate, but the training was really good. I mean, when you have kids, you get little reaction time, and then you have to keep it together till you get to an actual doctor. Speaking of which, please let me take you to the hospital. Or at least let me call the house doctor here. I am quite happy with the care I’ve received so far. I wouldn’t change a thing. Okay, I don’t want to jinx it, but I think ace finally fell asleep. I know. Told him a story. A little bit of singing, and maybe I’m just sort of starting to get the hang of his bedtime routine. Or maybe he’s just getting used to falling asleep without esme and spencer. Or maybe I’m just telling myself a story. Are you sure you’re okay with it? Yeah, but if you’re not into it, just change it. It’s just a movie. No, the movie is fine. I think. I wasn’t really paying attention. Okay, what is it? What’s going on? I keep thinking about the whole face-of-deception thing. Are you sure you’re okay with me being the face? Yeah. I mean, I already share your music with the world. Why not share your beautiful face, too?

[ Sighs ] Because my mom inserted a clause keeping my private life private in every contract. And if anyone pushes against that point, she made it very clear it’s a deal-breaker. Blaze is your public persona, and blaze is not out, but ali, my girlfriend, is. I’ll never get tired of hearing you call me your girlfriend. My girlfriend and i are out to our families, to our closest friends, and the people that really matter. We can be ourselves. That’s all I really care about. So if locking down your private life is the deal you made with your mom and everyone else, and as long as it doesn’t impact us in our relationship, I don’t see a problem with it. Right. Unless the person who has a problem with it is you. Ooh. Okay. Yep. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Mm. Jordan: Babe, where are you? Why don’t you come upstairs and find out? Oh, my god.

[ Chuckles ] “One small step for man.” Actually, it was a bunch of little steps.

[ Chuckles ] But one giant leap for yours truly. This is — this is huge. This is so great. And I don’t see your cane anywhere. No, no, no, no cane. Just me and my two legs.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. You’re amazing. No, you’re amazing. If it weren’t for you, honey, I would still be stuck in some hospital bed or in my wheelchair still, you know, mad at the world, feeling sorry for myself. Some version of that is how my story would have ended. But because of you, I have nothing but new chapters to write, and I can’t wait. Oh, my god.

[ Both chuckle ] I can’t wait to write them with you. Thank you, my love. Mm. Mm. Anytime.

[ Both chuckle ] Ugh, god.

[ Sighs ] This is pointless. This warehouse is half mine. And you’re taking it back? I never gave it up. You deserted it, jason. You were gone for more than two years. You’ve lost the right to take it back.

I don’t want to see your face. Didn’t I say that to you? Are we not clear? That’s why I had diane speak to you on my behalf. I still own 50% of corinthos coffee. Don’t quote my own lawyer to me.

Our lawyer. We both trust her and what she says. Why not trust her judgment on this? Forget diane. You came to my warehouse to get an answer from me. You got your wish. This is my business. I don’t want you anywhere near it. I’m so proud of you.

[ Giggles ] And not because you made it up the stairs but because you didn’t give in to despair. And you didn’t quit. Well, truth be told, I thought about it. There were times I thought about it, and each time I thought, “what would I say to trina?” She got hit with something terrible when spencer died, so it’s okay for her to call it quits and just curl up in a ball?

[ Sighs ] It’s not me. No. No, it’s not. And those words sound like a foreign language coming out of your mouth. I love it. I’m a husband and a father now. I’m a son. It’s just not about me anymore. Well, you did forget one thing off of that list. What’s that? Father, mm, mm…. lover. Is that so? I would be a fool to let all that effort that you took getting up those stairs and into our beautiful bedroom go to waste, and I am no fool.

[ Groans ] Thanks for the ice. I think it helped. Or else the bitter cold destroyed all the nerve endings in my body. So win/win. Okay, you need to keep this on your head. And you need to go home to that adorable daughter of yours. She’s great. She’s happy with her nanny. I’m concerned that you have a concussion. I’m fine. Trust me, it’ll take more than a couple of shots to this hard head to do any real damage. I don’t know about that. If you do have a concussion, someone needs to check on you every couple hours. They need to see if you’re having a hard time waking up. And if you are, that means your concussion is getting worse. I’ll be fine. Please let me take you to the hospital. I mean, just think, if you’re right, you get to say, “I told you so.” Well, I do like that, but come on. We know all they’re going to do is admit me and then wake me up all night long. No, I’d rather stay here.

[ Grunts ] Okay. I can wake people up with the best of them.

[ Sighs ] What are you doing? I’m getting comfortable. I have to conserve my energy. I have to shake you awake in a couple hours, and then a couple hours after that. Carly, I really appreciate — you’re wasting your time. I’m staying right here, and I’m going to save you from yourself. Are you saying that you regret this as much as I do? Oh, come on, nina. Two people consumed by a passionate mutual hatred with no acceptable outlet? I mean, it’s better than poisoning. I don’t see a big difference. Think of it as like a screwed-up spontaneous combustion. I’m going to think of it this way — as a down payment. And what’s on layaway? Appoint me to the board. Of aurora? Mm-hmm. Wait. I’m sorry. What possible sense would it make for me to appoint you to the board of aurora? I mean, you edit crimson. That’s your entire value to us. And I make the magazine a success. Okay, maybe not that, but you are close to michael. You’re close to willow. Just find a pathway for me to get back in my daughter’s good graces. Nina, you think that 45 minutes on my office floor with you commits me to dragging you out of the wreckage that you’ve made of your life? Come on. Going to take more than a couple of rug burns for me to lift a finger for you.

I tried to treat michael and willow to a fabulous surprise anniversary dinner, and they turned me down, which was humiliating. A surprise dinner, huh? Translation — regardless of what michael and willow wanted, you pushed whatever you wanted on them, which is so on brand for you. I don’t care how you describe it, drew. I felt like I was punched in the heart. And forgive me if I had to come down here and — and pull myself together and get a breath. And instead of sympathizing with me, just — I don’t now. I didn’t then. I never will sympathize with you, nina. I know that I had a little part in all of this, but I think you took advantage of my emotional, vulnerable state. Aw, you’re projecting, nina. Taking advantage of people? That’s your stock and trade. Oh, shut up. Let me just be clear about one thing here. Your offer for an anniversary dinner when you can’t stand michael and you wish willow hadn’t married him, was that really just for willow, or were you hoping that maybe they would tell sonny about how generous you are? Does sonny know that you’re still pining for him?

[ Grunts ] I take that as a yes. What time is it? Um, almost midnight. That late? You should really go home. Okay, well, if you insist, then I’ll drop you off at G.H. On my way. That’s not necessary. Carly: It probably is, but you’d probably just be trading one problem for another, huh? What are you talking about? Well, if you went to the hospital, the nurses would start asking you questions, and they’d have to call the pcpd. And then the pcpd would want to know what the heck you were doing wandering around the waterfront at that time of night. I wasn’t wandering around. I took a walk. Oh, yeah. In the most dangerous part of town at night. Port charles is a safe place.

[ Laughs ] Okay, make sure you say the safe part when you talk to the police, because they love that kind of feedback. Carly, I got mugged. It’s a terrible thing, but it happens, and this time, it happened to me. You should stick with that story. But I want you to know that i know you were tracking jason. If you don’t want me in your organization, I understand. No, you don’t understand. ‘Cause I trusted you more than anyone, and now I can’t trust you. I never gave the feds anything on you. Why should i believe that? Because if I had, you would have been arrested two years ago. I’ve been protecting you this whole time, sonny. I’m not a child. I don’t need protection. I need you to get away from me. Otherwise, I will have to remove you.

I’m worried about how small ace’s family is going to be. There are no siblings, you know? He may never know lulu and — and lucky. And I know there’s elizabeth’s boys, but they’re quite a bit older, and they have their own lives. It’s really just you and me and ace. And heather. Yes, I know she likes to call herself ace’s grandmother. Well, technically, she is ace’s grandmother. We may not like it, but esme was her daughter. Yes, but she’s in pentonville. For now. Wasn’t she supposed to be transferred to a federal prison in california? I forgot to tell you. Um, the D.A.’S office canceled the transfer because of her medical condition. So she is in pentonville for the foreseeable future. Mm. Unless… something else occurs. “Chemically induced abnormal behavior.” This is really what you think happened to heather, isn’t it? My god. Do you think they would ever reopen heather’s case after all the things that she did?

[ Grunts ] If you breathe a word of this to sonny — having hate sex with you on my office floor isn’t something I’m going to be bragging about, okay? And I wouldn’t worry too much about sonny. He’s a little preoccupied right now with my brother’s surprise return. Well, he can think about more than one thing at a time. And somehow he isn’t thinking about you at all. You got to face it, nina. You’re not even on sonny’s radar right now. He doesn’t care who you’re mixing it up with. Maybe it’s because he’s got a new roommate. Sonny? Are you home?

[ Sighs ] What do you have that’ll help a person sleep? Oh. Come on, sonny. You have to do better than that.

[ Light switch clicks ] Alright, sonny, where do you keep the good stuff? “May cause drowsiness.” Doesn’t have to be this way. I’m not a threat. You keep your organization. I’m going to stay out of it. All I want is my half of the coffee business. And all I want is the truth. If you didn’t inform on me… what were you doing with the feds? Sonny, I told you everything that I could. You told me nothing, jason, and I thought it was because ava was right there, but ava’s not here now. It’s just you and me. If you want me to trust you, if you want half of the business back, you’re going to have to trust me, right? What happened to you?

The fbi picked me up on cassadine island. They flew me back to quantico. They offered me a deal — become an informant, and no charges will be filed. I took that deal because it was my best option. They didn’t want me to inform on you because they knew I never would do it, and that it would never work. So they sent me after somebody else. Who? Who’d they — I can’t — sonny, I can’t tell you. Why? Because you think I’m going to go tell these people that you’re a traitor? No, I can’t tell you because it’s part of the deal. If I talk, it violates the terms of the agreement, and the charges get filed. Was part of the deal, uh, to take a shot at me? How many times did you try to kill me, jason? I never tried to kill you, sonny. And I’m going to believe that? Because you’re loyal? Because you’re my friend? My brother? Because if I tried to kill you… …I wouldn’t have missed. Oh, ava. You cannot self-medicate with somebody else’s prescription, you know. It does cause drowsiness, though, and if sonny can handle it…

[ Sighs ] Oh, who am I kidding? I want to be fair. Having a control freak for a mom can be really helpful when it comes to my career. What about the rest of your life? Your — your real life? Ha. My mom says she knows me better than I know myself. Oh, god, I hate when parents say that. Me, too. But I think she says it because, when she was my age, she… you know, she crossed the line a few times. And then she became a mom. Well, becoming a mom certainly changes your perspective on everything. You know, and I’m only an aunt, so… you’re not “only” anything. I think because my mom didn’t want me making the same mistakes she did, she became super strict. Well, it kind of worked. I mean, look at you. You’re — you’re smart and disciplined, and you’ve built an incredible career for yourself. It’s amazing. A lot of that is because I paid attention to everything she said when I was growing up. She should be able to look at my life and know that. She should trust me enough to live my own life. I mean, your parents do. Okay, I must have missed something. Is there a problem with your parents? Is this the folder that you wanted, babe? Yeah, that’s it. Okay. Probably could have did it myself, but, uh, it would have been 2:00 in the morning before I made my way back down the stairs and back up, so thank you.

[ Chuckles ] Well, with the progress you’re making, you will be up and down those stairs in no time. The miracles of modern medicine. You know, you doctors can fix anything. Mm-hmm. Babe, is everything okay? Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, I’m fine. Okay. Thought I’d lost you there for a second. I wondered where you went. Thought maybe you were thinking about these bills. Oh, no, no, no. Those bills are all yours. Oh, I don’t know if you saw this note from brook lynn quartermaine. She’s pushing me to have an invitation-only event at the savoy to showcase blaze’s new single. I’m probably going to say yes, but I think I’ll make her sweat a little bit. Yeah, it has nothing to do with that. What is it, babe? Talk to me. I was at the hospital, and I overheard kevin and alexis saying something about how they could use a pre-existing condition to, um, overturn a conviction. Okay. Heather webber is diagnosed with metallosis. Basically, her artificial hip is — is poisoning her. And one of the, um — the symptoms of metallosis is a shift in personality. Okay, so is anyone arguing that heather webber isn’t responsible for all those lives she took? That’s exactly what I’m afraid of. Someone is going to use her condition as grounds to reopen heather’s case and possibly set that woman free. You think I was tracking jason? Hm. [ Sighs ] You’re getting warmer. Hide and seek? Really? Is that how the fbi conducts its business now? Oh, my supervisors would definitely not approve of the situation. But they’re not here. So. You want to guess again? Okay. Well, if you weren’t tracking jason, you were tracking… his lawyer. Diane miller? Give the lady a cigar.

[ Chuckles ] I don’t want a cigar, but I will take a very expensive glass of wine at a date to be determined. Deal. Wow. I mean, getting mugged is not generally a mood lifter, but it’s made you fun.

[ Scoffs ] Thank you.

[ Laughs ] And I am fun. You just don’t know me well enough to see it yet.

I get the legal argument that heather’s condition, uh… metallosis. …Metallosis contributed to her mental state, but she committed multiple homicides. There’s no way she should be allowed to go free. And I pray that you’re right. Exactly. Because trina’s been through enough. It’s — it’s enough. This whole family. But, baby, we made it through… yeah. …And we are stronger than ever. We are, aren’t we? We made it through together as a family. You better believe it. And I will do whatever it takes to make you feel safe and secure and loved. You just said that you would do whatever it takes? I sure did. I think I’m going to need you to prove that. I couldn’t stop thinking about my conversation with alexis about heather and the hypotheticals that could set her free. So I did a deep dive into a database about toxicology and abnormal behavior. And at first, you would think that the chances of heather’s murder conviction being overturned are inconceivable. But then with further investigation… it is not without medical and legal precedent. Oh, wow. You know, I just I can’t imagine what the reaction would be to heather going free. Well, we know portia robinson and — and sasha gilmore, dr. Obrecht, ava, all of those people are going to be outraged, as would most of the citizens of port charles, I think. Understandably. Unless it could be proven that heather herself was victimized.

[ Sighs ] And if that were the case, I think it would be wrong not to give her a second chance. Selfishly, there’s a side of me that would like to see heather redeemed. Not released, but rehabilitated into someone functional, someone stable that ace could know, maybe even have a relationship with. And if I’m completely honest, I’d like to think that there is some good that could come from the harm I’ve caused. None of this is your fault. Laura, I made one decision about my brother, and it resulted in a series of devastating events. If ryan hadn’t gotten loose, then heather would still be institutionalized and her victims would still be alive. And so would spencer and esme. We never even would have met esme. I think you’re forgetting one thing. Ace wouldn’t be here, either. Uh, I don’t have a problem with anyone in my family right now, and, gosh, I think that’s maybe the first time I’ve ever been able to really say that. My mom’s good. She’s supportive of our relationship and the surrogacy. What about your dad? My dad’s good. He loves me unconditionally. You know that. He, of course, has a dark side… …but he’s loving and he’s generous and he’s more sensitive than people think, and he can get hurt, too. I’m a little worried about my dad right now, so… is it because he and nina broke up? Nina’s not perfect, but he was happy with her. And since ava moved in — wait. She moved in? I thought she was just staying there temporarily. So did I. Ava is staying with sonny for security reasons. You keep telling yourself that. You know what, drew? Let me worry about ava, okay? You just figure out a way to get me closer to my daughter, and if it’s not appointing me to the board, then come up with something else. Even if I was willing to help you, michael will never see you as anything other than a threat to his family. You — you lied to him about his father’s death, and then you sued him to get access to his child. But willow… willow’s got a softer heart, and she and i are still friends. Okay. You will help me plead my case to her, then? Maybe. But after my near-death beating that I took in prison because of you, you’re going to have to make it so worth my while. Port charles is still my home, this warehouse is still half mine, and I’m going to be here every day importing coffee, totally legit. So whatever business you want to do, do it away from the warehouse so I don’t have to be witness to it. You think I won’t do it, jason? You think I won’t get rid of you? I can do that in a heartbeat. All I got to do is say the word, and you’re gone. Come on, sonny, if anything happens to me, you know the cops are going to look at you first. Don’t tell me what I know. You know what I know? That you can’t be trusted, and I’m going to have to get protection now from you. Because you’re a traitor. Sonny, just stop. Just stop. Yeah, you are. You’re a traitor. Are you — are you taking your meds?

What will it cost me to have you as my ally? Oh, I think “ally” is going to be a strong word for what I’ll be, but you’re a creative person. You can put your thinking cap on and come up with something that’ll be worth my time and effort, right? I like this shirt. You can start by sewing the buttons back on that. Do your own mending.

[ Grunts ] Okay, well, you know what? I did order all-new ice machines for this entire hotel, but I don’t need to keep going on and on about how this hotel is not great anymore. It’s a nice hotel, carly. Yeah, it was. It was. But I’m not going to bore you with all my complaints about the hotel. What about you? I mean, are there any other circumstances other than getting beaten up

[Chuckles] Where you’re fun? I must be concussed. Or at least punchy. I’ve said way too much already. Yeah, well, I have a lot of experiences where I’m listening to things that I don’t repeat or remember, you know? Well, that’s a way to end a conversation. Sleep well, agent cates. I’ll wake you up in a couple hours. Looks like you’re still working on the bills, huh? I guess I’ll just… no, no, no, no, no, no, not looking as good as you want to look.

[ Both chuckle ] Come here. Hi, baby. Hey, baby. You know, in case you don’t remember, we really never had an official honeymoon. I think we should do something about that as soon as possible. Okay, so you just tap there. Ha! Voil, right?

[ Chuckles ] You can see, in real time, ace sleeping. That’s amazing. Yeah. You make the same face when you’re asleep.

[ Both chuckle ] Well, maybe it runs in the family. Well, yo u know the pictureand the sound is so pristine, and here I thought that the baby monitor was the pinnacle of technological advancement. Yeah, well, it was. 20 years ago.

[ Chuckles ] And when I hear people say, “20 years,” I think, “oh, they’re talking about the ’80s.” And then I realize, no, they’re not. They’re not, yeah. Oh, sweetie, I know that us raising a baby, I mean, at this point in our lives, I know it wasn’t part of your bucket list. Was it on yours? No. Mnh-mnh. No. Well, it’s not like we’re ready to retire, and we’re not exactly people who back away from life. And I think that ace has given us so much more life. He has, and I love it. And I love you. I love you, too. You know, we took an awful lot of wrong turns and detours before we found each other, but we did, and I think ace is just another unexpected… responsibility? …Miracle.

[ Sighs ] Wow. You’re really something. I’m a lucky man. I’m a lucky woman.

[ Both chuckle ] I know there’s still a security reason for ava and avery to be staying at his place, but it’s just something doesn’t feel right about it, you know? It’s weird. And even dante noticed it, and he’s on pain meds. Did she say or do anything? No, no, just little things, you know? I can’t see the whole picture yet, but one thing I do know. Ava is a jerome, and the jeromes love power. It’s like a drug. You think she’s going to, what, make a move on sonny’s business? Not like a, you know,

move move. She would never comment something straight on. She’s too smart for that. She’d slither in from the side or something. And she’s making herself indispensable to my dad. She’s running interference. She’s making him drinks. And your dad doesn’t see what she’s doing? Worse. He likes it. A lot.

[ Sighs ] “May cause drowsiness.”

[ Sighs ] You must like the taste of those, sonny, because I took a few of them, and I feel absolutely nothing. Nada. So if they don’t help you sleep and they don’t do anything else, what do those stupid pills do? I take my medication every day, every dosage, like clockwork.

[ Chuckling ] I’m not having a breakdown. I’m just — I have to face the truth. You’re not who I thought. Or maybe you never were. I’m not your enemy. And I don’t want any trouble. And I accept that you don’t trust me. You don’t have to trust me. I’ll stay out of your way. You better. Go ahead, take the — take — take the warehouse. Sit in it till you rot. If you double cross me again, or I suspect that you’re interfering with my business or my life… …I will end you.

Tucker: I’m really sorry you had to deal with ashley again.

Audra: Don’t apologize. Yeah, I see it now. You’re right. Something strange is happening to that woman. It’s unsettling to watch for anyone. And more so the people who care about her.

Tucker: Yeah. I hope jack and the abbotts can get her the professional help she needs.

Traci: Thank you so much for coming. Um, everyone, I– I– I know it’s late, uh, but this is something I didn’t think could wait.

Diane: Well, it’s nice to be included in the family meeting.

Traci: It affects us all.

Billy: Uh, well, obviously we’re here for a reason, but do we know how long this is going to be? I– I just want to be aware of chelsea. She’s dealing with some stuff with connor.

Traci: I’m so sorry to pull you away. I promise, it’s important.

Jack: So, we’re waiting for ashley, right? I mean, she is the topic, isn’t she?

Traci: I am scared to death for ashley.

Ms. Abbott: I said wake up.

Ash: Hey! You pulled me back in.

Ms. Abbott: Because you’re interfering with my plan, and now I have to do damage control to get us back on track.

Ash: Your plan is dangerous. It’s going to backfire. We’re supposed to protect ashley, not get her into major trouble. My mental health was better.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Summer: I don’t know. I think I’m just worried about how getting fired is going to affect daniel. Yeah, I even thought about calling my mom, but that would be a nightmare for obvious reasons.

Chance: I have been bracing for phyllis to storm into the office when she gets wind of this.

Summer: Oh, you joke. But I’m sure you are worried about the blowback for chancellor-winters. I mean, firing both daniel and heather, that’s a pretty bold move.

Summer: Yeah, I can see it causing some hr issues.

Summer: I’m more worried about daniel emotionally. I don’t think he really thought about all the repercussions of him getting back together with heather.

Chance: Well, people usually don’t when it comes to love.

Summer: You know, omegasphere kind of saved him. He used to be a painter.

Chance: Yeah, I remember you mentioning that.

Summer: Yeah, well, it was his passion, and then his career stalled out, and he fell apart.

Chance: Like the whole struggling artist thing?

Summer: Oh, it was worse than that. He went to this really dark place, he pushed everyone away, and heather tried to stick around as long as she could, but at a certain point, she had to take lucy and move to portugal just to get away from his moods.

Chance: It’s hard to believe that this is the same guy that created our insanely successful gaming platform.

Summer: Princess louisa is what brought him back to himself, and to lucy, and now to heather.

Chance: Maybe it served its purpose. He doesn’t need it anymore.

Summer: Mm. Or maybe having his new career yanked away from him is going to make him spiral down all over again.

Daniel: I get you letting me go and I understand you cutting me loose from omegasphere, but I am begging you to let me keep princess louisa.

Lily: And why would i do that?

Daniel: Because you, more than anyone, know what this means to me. I created this game for my daughter. I made the character in her image, not just artistically, but spiritually, too. I poured all of my love for my daughter and all my pain from messing up my relationship with her into this game. And it was you, it was you who stood by and you cheered me on, and you gave me the opportunity to bring princess louisa to life. That saved me. It brought my daughter back to me. It saved our relationship. It gave me the opportunity to be a father to her again. And you did that. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t be mad at me. I’m just asking you to remember why we built this, and I am begging you, just please don’t take this away from me.

Ms. Abbott: My god, you’re such an idiot. Don’t you see the emotional threat that tucker mccall poses to ashley?

Ash: You don’t intimidate me. I know you’re dangerous, and you’re putting ashley at risk.

Ms. Abbott: She’s vulnerable when she’s around him. And he’s not going anywhere. It’s my job to make sure that he gets out of her life for good.

Ash: You’re gonna make it worse. I know what you’re planning and it scares me.

Ms. Abbott: Because you’re ignorant.

Ash: You’re gross! What if they blame her? Have you ever thought about that? And then we wouldn’t have protected ashley at all.

Ms. Abbott: She won’t be blamed. Our sweet little vessel will be protected.

Ash: Just how are you gonna do that?

Ms. Abbott: Tucker mccall’s bimbo girlfriend. She’s gonna take the fall.

Tucker: Shall we move on to a more pressing topic?

Audra: You know, I’m surprised you didn’t bring up your proposal to me to ashley.

Tucker: Did you want me to?

Audra: You know, I almost brought it up myself. But I can’t believe I’m saying this. It seemed cruel.

Tucker: Even as she continues to push her way into our life?

Audra: What I saw wasn’t just a jealous ex. You know, she’s clearly troubled. Something’s happening to her.

Tucker: Are you saying you felt sorry for her?

Audra: Oh.

Jack: Okay, so ashley has been moody lately. We’ve all discussed that. How did this turn into such a scary problem?

Traci: Okay, first, I think we need to talk about tucker’s warning to her. You know, telling her she needs to get professional help.

Jack: As I said to you, this is another of mccall’s mind games. Now that ashley sees him for who he is, he wants to sow doubt in all of our minds about her mental health. As if she could only be unwell if she wanted nothing to do with him.

Traci: No. Jack, I don’t believe that’s it. I’ve been thinking back to when we were in paris and her behavior once we got home, and I just can’t shake the sense that there is something way bigger going on here than just a mccall ploy. And we would never forgive ourselves if he’s right and– and we just sit back and do nothing.

Jack: I’m sorry, traci. Ashley has warned me too many times lately to butt out.

Diane: It’s true. She’s made it very clear that she’s tired of everyone weighing in with their opinions.

Traci: Isn’t it better to be wrong and sorry than to ignore the possibility? I mean, come on! I can take the heat of ashley’s anger, but I would not be able to live with myself if I ignore warning signs and there are consequences.

Billy: I think that’s fair, traci, but maybe we just give her a little bit of time to work this out on her own as she’s demanded, you know? What’s the urgency?

Traci: Things have got far more dangerous than you know. Hey! It’s your dry skin.

Chance: You know, I was surprised at first that lily and devon would fire them both so quickly, but I thought about it, and… when abby, she cheated on me, I, um… well, I– I guess I understand where lily’s coming from. A betrayal like that, it hurts like hell. And it’s hard to look at it in the face, literally, every day just because you have to run a company.

Summer: I get it. I probably would do the exact same thing as lily, but it doesn’t stop me from worrying about my brother. I just– I don’t know what to do.

Chance: Maybe there is nothing to do other than just be there for him.

Summer: Seems like falling in love doesn’t get any less complicated the more that you do it.

Chance: Yeah, but when love works out, it’s totally worth it. Otherwise, we’d stop after the first time. Wise man.

Chance: Mm, well, I don’t like to brag.

Summer: Uh-uh.

Chance: Now, if I may?

Summer: Of course.

[ Soft jazz music plays ]

Claire: Maybe that’s too awkward for you. When mom suggested telling me about neil, I didn’t know you were coming.

Cole: No, it’s– it’s okay. And there’s no need to explain or protect me. I was there, and I know what happened. I, uh, I wasn’t happy when neil wanted to step in at that time. But now, I can appreciate what he was willing to do. We were young, we made mistakes, or at least I certainly did.

Claire: Maybe, but you’ve been here for me throughout this whole ordeal. You’re the best father I could have ever wanted.

Cole: Thank you. I want you to know your story. All of it. And neil was going to be a part of that story, and he helped your mother through a very tough time. And for that, I will always be grateful.

Victor: Claire… neil was… a truly good man, and a very trusted friend.

Nikki: Yes, we helped each other through some rough times.

Claire: It feels like every day I’m learning about or meeting people who touched my life in ways I didn’t even know about. I can’t wait to learn more.

Jack: Exactly how did things become dangerous?

Traci: Look, I’m– I’m struggling here because I– I– I’m trying not to break ashley’s confidence. She swore me to secrecy.

Billy: Okay, um, I think we all know that if our sister’s safety is a concern, we appreciate you wanting to keep a secret, but to hell with that.

Jack: Come on, out with it.

Traci: Ashley is having blackouts. She’s waking up in strange places with no recollection of how she got there.

Audra: It’s like I was talking to two different people. A frantic, scared little girl, and then seconds later, ashley on steroids. Just in control, above it all. That’s the one you got there in time to see.

Tucker: Hm.

Audra: And it wasn’t just a mood swing. It was jarring.

Tucker: Yeah. Seems like she’s getting worse by the day.

Audra: You know, she said she, or ashley, is planning to hurt you.

Tucker: Yeah, I just– I have a hard time believing she’d actually be physically dangerous.

Audra: Well, I assume she meant emotionally, like break your heart.

Tucker: Mm-hmm.

Audra: I hadn’t even considered she might have plans to do you physical harm.

Ash: What do you mean? You’re going to pull tucker’s girlfriend into this mess?

Ms. Abbott: Mm-hmm. My plan is genius, so you stay out of it. Or I just might have to make you disappear for good.

Ash: You can’t do that. Ashley created me to protect her from you.

Ms. Abbott: Mm. That’s so sweet. I’m the only one that’s looking out for her best interests.

Ash: You’re going too far, and I’m going to stop you.

Ms. Abbott: I’m in control of this situation. I am stronger than you and even ashley. Just look at her. She’s so weak. She’s so vulnerable. Where would she be without me? When you have chronic kidney disease,

Summer: Seriously?

Victor: Oh, my goodness, chance and summer. It’s so nice to see both of you. You look so happy.

Summer: Oh, thanks…

Victor: My goodness.

Summer: …Grandpa, it’s nice to feel that way.

Claire: Hey, uh, how’s my new buddy, harrison?

Summer: He’s fine, thanks.

Nikki: Why don’t you join us at our table? It’s family night out, the more the merrier.

Summer: Uh, why not?

Cole: Oh, great, great. I’ll go get a table.

Victor: Uh, would you mind talking to granddad for a moment?

Summer: Absolutely, grandpa.

Victor: Thank you. So…

Summer: What’s up?

Victor: …Why do I get the feeling that you’re not all that happy with your new cousin? I mean, is it because of what I’ve told you about her?

Summer: You act like everything that happened is ancient history, but it was just a couple months ago that she tried to poison all of you, and now you’re here chummy with her?

Victor: I understand your concern. I really do. But just know that we all have decided to move beyond that, and I hope that you can too. And just remember, we’re all a result of our upbringing, and claire did not have too good of an upbringing.

Summer: Even so, anybody that could go along with a scheme like that, even if it wasn’t her idea, I just– I don’t trust her.

Billy: Ashley’s blacking out? Is she drinking?

Traci: I asked her the same thing. She says no. It’s different.

Jack: So, what exactly did ashley tell you?

Traci: Okay, remember I told you that she was out all night and didn’t come home?

Jack: Yeah, as adults do sometimes.

Traci: Well, after you left, she finally did come home. And she was a wreck! I pushed her to find out where she’d been, and finally she said that she couldn’t answer my question because she had no idea.

Billy: That’s not good.

Traci: No! Apparently she woke up in some seedy motel, alone, thank god, but she had absolutely no memory of how she got there, and no, pills and alcohol were not involved.

Jack: This is serious.

Traci: Yes! Thank you! Thank you for finally realizing that!

Billy: Okay, um, I feel like I’m playing catch up a little bit here. So, how long has this been going on for? A while or?

Traci: But I– I don’t know how long the blackouts have been happening, but I think we’ve all seen some pretty erratic behavior from her lately.

Billy: I mean, I have. I told you that I had a run-in with her at society, and she was acting like a child.

Jack: I had a similar situation with her here. She was binge watching sitcoms in the middle of the day. When I told her billy and i were both concerned about her, she told me to tell everyone to stop bugging her and leave her alone!

Traci: It’s time to take a look at the real possibility something serious is going on with her!

Daniel: I hate that i hurt you, and I understand why you wouldn’t want to see me or heather in the building.

Lily: I think it’s too late for regrets now.

Daniel: If you can find it in your heart just to let me carve out this tiny little piece, I will gladly walk away from the rest of omegasphere.

Lily: You know, you seem to think that you have some sort of say in this.

Daniel: I thought you understood where I was coming from.

Lily: Well, I mean, understanding your request and granting it are two different things. But lucy forgave you, heather’s back in your bed again, you’re one big happy family. So princess louisa served its purpose. And now, it’s just another game. And I own it. After cooking a delicious knorr chicken

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Ms. Abbott: Look at you. You can’t fight me. Go back to sleep.

Ash: No. You can’t make me. You’re not the boss of me.

Ms. Abbott: Oh, but I am.

Ash: No. Ashley. Ashley, please. No. Ashley. No.

[ Grunts ]

Ms. Abbott: Soon, he’s going to be gone for good. And then you’ll be safe. I promise.

[ Gasps ]

Ashley: Oh, my god, what the hell is this? Honestly. Yeah. It’s time for you to go, tucker.

Claire: It’s one thing to find out both of you wanted me, but the idea this man did too, how did that happen?

Victoria: I told you that your father and I were not together when you were born.

Cole: We were headed for divorce.

Victoria: And, um, then i started dating neil, and I found out I was pregnant with you.

Cole: And I didn’t know yet.

Victoria: Yes, but that’s because you were dating ashley. And like you said earlier, I mean, we were young and naive, and we– we didn’t always make the best choices. But when I told neil, he wanted to get married and he wanted to raise you as his own.

Claire: Did he really love you that much? Or was he just so generous to raise someone else’s child?

[ Victoria chuckles ]

Victoria: That is just the kind of man that he was. And if it had come to pass, you wouldn’t have been to him just someone else’s child. You would have been his.

Cole: And when I found out, I absolutely wanted to raise you as my daughter.

Victoria: Then, my appendix burst, and I was rushed to the hospital, and you were born.

Cole: And we thought that you had passed.

Victoria: And our grief drowned out anything else that had happened up to that point.

Nikki: I’m glad claire is learning about neil.

Victor: Yeah. You know, when I think of him, naming the lounge after neil was a wonderful idea. Keeps his name in everyone’s memory.

Nikki: Well, abby gets all the credit for that.

Victor: Yes.

Nikki: And you know, I do think that the dedication that we did at the gala really helped mend things between devon and lily. And neil would have been very pleased about that. Now, his children, his grandchildren have a place to go to remember him. And we all do. I– I miss him every day.

Victor: Yeah.

Nikki: Especially at our aa meetings, but you know, I– I do feel his presence here. I mean, this room feels very, very warm and inviting. And… [ Exhales ] …It’s a relief to feel almost safe somewhere other than the ranch, you know?

Victoria: Are you worried about an uninvited guest?

Summer: You don’t think that jordan woman would show up here?

Nikki: Oh, no, no, no. She wouldn’t dare. No, and besides, we have our security detail. I am not going to let her get to me anymore. I am going to enjoy this family night out as best I can. After I powdered my nose. Excuse me.

Victor: Here, sweetheart.

Victoria: Uh, dad, mom seems a little skittish. Do you think maybe I should go with her?

Victor: Oh, just give her some time, okay?

Cole: May I have this dance?

Claire: Go ahead. I’ve never seen my parents dance.

Cole: Go?

Victoria: Yeah.

Chance: You want to take another spin?

Summer: Thought you’d never ask.

Claire: I saw you talking to summer. She thinks I’m a monster like jordan, doesn’t she?

Victor: If I were you, I wouldn’t worry about that. Because you will win over your cousin just like you have the rest of us.

Victoria: I’m sorry if bringing up neil to claire opened up old wounds.

Cole: I’m not. It’s good for her to see that people can change.

Victoria: She really has come so far.

Cole: We all have. And I don’t think we’d make the same mistakes today that we made back then.

Upbeat music

Victor: Thank you, simone. There you are.

Nikki: Well, it touches my heart to see your parents dancing.

Victor: Doesn’t it?

Claire: Yeah, they just fit, don’t they?

Victoria: Thank you for the dance.

Cole: Anytime.

Summer: Do we have to stop?

Chance: We can just sit here and sway in silence. That’d be kind of weird.

Summer: Weirder than making small talk with my new cousin?

Chance: Come on.

[ Summer groaning ] Come on.

Victor: And now… let’s all raise a glass. To see all of you together here makes me very happy, okay? So to family. And to the anniversary of my marriage to the love of my life. Cheers.

All: Cheers.

Audra: You know, the fact that you want us to make this commitment, the happily ever after of it all–

Tucker: Yeah, that’s what we deserve.

Audra: Yeah, but that’s a fairy tale. And we’re no prince and princess.

Tucker: Says who?

Audra: Every fiber in my being. And yours too, if you’re being honest with yourself. Look, like I said, tucker, we work because we aren’t traditional. Trying to fit into a conventional love story, it would break us. Hey. You want every day with me? You have it.

Tucker: Ah.

Audra: An endless adventure, I am all in. But just please, no labels or documents. No tiaras or– or diamonds, okay? Just you and me, that’s it.

Tucker: You sound almost superstitious about it. Like a– a marriage certificate would be the death knell.

Audra: For us? There is no doubt in my mind.

Tucker: Hm, and are you sure you’re not being swayed by all this drama with ashley?

Audra: No, I swear that’s not it. We’re in a good place, you and me. A great place. Now, was that a kiss of rejection or intense love?

Tucker: I think I need another one just to– just to try to figure it out.

Audra: Well, you’ll get plenty of that later. I am late to meet sally for a drink.

[ Tucker imitates sobbing ]

Tucker: You’re such a tease.

Audra: And that’s why you love me. See you later.

Tucker: Adios.

Jack: So, how did ashley say she was going to handle this?

Traci: Well, she didn’t, really. I suggested that she see a doctor, and one moment she was in agreement, she was terrified about the blackouts and really, really concerned about what was happening with her. And the next moment, she brushed everything off, and said there was nothing to worry about.

Billy: So, what changed her mind?

Traci: Nothing changed, just her attitude. We– we’ve got to step in. We’ve got to help her.

[ Door bangs closed ]

Ashley: Oh, dear, look at these faces, so grim. Who died?

Daniel: Well, I wanted to do this civilly, have a conversation about it, appeal to your better nature, but I guess, if you’re going to take a hard line, then, well, you leave me no choice.

Lily: What’s that supposed to mean?

Daniel: I’m going to be suing chancellor-winters for wrongful termination, and I’m going to demand that I get to keep whatever I want from omegasphere, the platform that I created.

[ Lily laughing ]

Lily: I mean, you can go ahead and try, but your contract is ironclad.

Daniel: I wouldn’t be so sure about that. You see, heather is going to represent me. She rarely loses, so, um… get ready for a fight. (Vo) welcome to lobsterfest. Is your party ready?

Victor: I thought it was a wonderful evening. I certainly hope that it provided some escape for you, my baby.

Nikki: Yes, it did. We never did get around to making any plans for the party.

Victor: It’ll be a wonderful party. Celebrating all our years together, and our years to come.

Nikki: You know, we didn’t eat anything at the lounge and I am starving.

Victor: Yes.

Nikki: Do you think you could ask the chef to make us a light supper?

Victor: That’s a great idea. I’ll be right back.

Nikki: Thank you.

Victor: Good idea.

Nikki: Just a sip at a time. Just to get me through tonight. And then ’til the party. And until jordan is caught. Then, I’ll be able to fight this. For now, it’s slow and steady. A sip at a time. A day at a time. I can do that. No one will have any idea.

Summer: Thank you for being a good sport and hanging out with my family. Even my new cousin. What? You want to say something.

Chance: No, it’s just– look, I got a good sense of people.

Summer: All right, what is your spidey sense telling you about claire?

Chance: That she’s trying very hard to get over her past, and to reach out to you. Seems like she wants a friend. Now, is it that hard for you to give her a chance?

Victoria: Thank you for bringing us home.

Cole: Hey, well, you know, thank you for including me with the night.

Claire: Yeah, it was almost a perfect night.

Victoria: Almost?

Claire: I get the sense that summer isn’t wild about me. Victor says I can win her over, but I’m not so sure. I hate the idea of having enemies in the family.

Victoria: No, I’m sure that summer won’t be an enemy.

Cole: You know, I think she just needs to spend more time with you to see just how great you are.

Claire: Well, I’m willing to try. But I can’t think of anything better than getting into my new bed right now. So, good night.

Victoria: Good night, sweetheart.

Cole: Night.

Claire: Night.

Cole: Well, uh, I should go, and let you turn in.

Victoria: Yeah, okay. Ah, well, um, thank you for coming tonight.

Cole: Yeah, well, thanks for the dance.

Victoria: Yeah, I haven’t done that in such a long time. It was nice.

Cole: It was nice.

Traci: Actually, we were just discussing our concern for you, ashley.

Ashley: So, you betrayed me. I told you something in confidence, and you just turned around, and blabbed away.

Traci: I am so worried about you. It was a secret I couldn’t keep. We can’t keep ignoring what’s going on with you. Your behavior is a cry for help.

Ashley: So, is that what this is? It’s a– it’s a sad excuse for an intervention?

Jack: It seems your condition is more serious than we knew.

Ashley: Ah, I have a condition now. How fascinating. So, I’m not allowed to have any kind of conflicted feelings or concerns at all? If I voice any kind of doubts or anything, that all of you think that I’m falling apart?

Jack: No, no one is saying that. If you’re having memory issues, if you’re blacking out, you need to see a doctor.

Billy: And I hope you can understand, we all have your best interest at heart.

Traci: All we want to do is help.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Billy: I got it.

Ashley: Okay, so this is how you help, by gathering together like this?

Jack: Let’s just–

[ Ashley scoffs ]

Ashley: Well, now, isn’t this just peachy? The gang’s all here.

Deacon: Stop! Stop! Ten toes! It can’t be. There’s no way.

[ Groaning ]

Finn: Morning.

Steffy: Morning. Here.

Finn: Thank you.

Steffy: Hey. Should’ve woken me up when you got in.

Finn: Well, it was a late shift.

Steffy: Yeah. But we still haven’t talked about, you know, sheila’s memorial. So how was it? Did you feel like you got some closure?

Finn: Yeah. And thanks again for being so understanding.

Steffy: Well, I wasn’t gonna stand in the way. So now it’s finally over, huh?

Finn: You’re amazing. You know that?

Steffy: I love hearing you say that. So you and deacon weren’t the only ones at the memorial? Hope was there too?

Zende: You sure you don’t wanna reschedule the meeting?

Rj: Yeah, it’d be understandable considering you went to sheila’s memorial yesterday.

Hope: I think it will be fine. I was there to support my dad.

Rj: And how is he?

Hope: Grieving. Losing her the way that he did, the way that sheila died, was difficult for him to process. I think he really believed that sheila had changed.

Zende: Too bad she didn’T. But at least we don’t have to worry about sheila being a threat anymore.

Hope: While I appreciate the concern, I didn’t ask you here to discuss sheila’s memorial. I assume that you have heard that thomas has relocated to paris for the time being?

Zende: We did.

Luna: Yeah, just tell us what you need.

Rj: We’re here for you.

Hope: Thank you. Um, as you may or may not know, thomas proposed again and I did not accept. So he has left. And I don’t exactly know what that means quite yet, both personally and professionally. But his absence is quite a bit of a loss. So I am counting on you all to really step up. We’re gonna have to rally together and work as a team.

Finn: Yeah, hope was there to support her father.

Steffy: So it was just you two and deacon?

Finn: Yeah. Yeah, it was a pretty simple ceremony. It was actually pretty eye-opening. I didn’t think I realized how much deacon really cared about sheila. She was important to him and he misses her. He’s just– he’s having difficulty accepting that she’s really gone.

Hollis: Uh, boss? You okay?

Deacon: What?

Hollis: You hanging in there after the memorial yesterday? I mean, I know that’s pretty overwhelming stuff, saying goodbye to someone you care so much about.

Deacon: No. No, I’m not all right, hollis. I’m not all right at all. (Vo) you might be used to living with your albuterol asthma

Zende: Thomas was the lead designer, but… you’re the heart and soul of this line, hope.

Rj: You always have been, sis.

Hope: Well, I’ll need your help to put out a new collection.

Luna: I’m happy to pitch in whatever you need.

Hope: Well, hope for the future is this company’s youngest line, and you are the youngest generation of forrester creations. You are all brilliant and talented, and I am very excited about what we can achieve together. But in order to do so, we’re really, really going to have to step up. You ready for that?

Rj: Absolutely.

Zende: Hope for the future is my number one priority.

Luna: I mean, I know I still have a lot to learn, but I’m super thrilled to be on the team.

Hope: Oh, no, no, no, actually, luna, you are going to be a very big part of this. I mean, after you worked so closely with rj on eric’s collection, you impressed a lot of people, and so I think it’s time to give you a little more responsibility. Look, I don’t see this as a setback. I see it as an opportunity. A chance to try something new. And luna, I envision you working very closely with zende.

Steffy: Yeah, I don’t have a lot of sympathy for deacon. I mean, this is the man who harbored the woman who tried to kill us.

Finn: Hmm.

Steffy: And I get sheila’s death has taken a toll on deacon. And you too, but, um…

Finn: Hey, it’s– it’s been rough on all of us.

Steffy: Yeah. But now we can finally move on.

Finn: I am. And I’m sorry I can’t explain it. This tie to sheila was deeper than I realized. Hey, thank you for giving me the space to… not exactly grieve her, but just to acknowledge what I lost.

Steffy: Well, you’re my husband and I’m gonna support you. No matter what, okay? Hey, sheila didn’t come between us when she was alive. She’s not gonna come between us now.

Hollis: What happened? Did the memorial not go as you had hoped? Did anyone show?

Deacon: Finn and hope.

Hollis: That’s great. That’s what you wanted, right? To have family there?

Deacon: Yeah.

Hollis: It’s hard to believe she’s really gone.

Deacon: You’re telling me.

Deacon: How did you convince everyone that you’re dead?

Sheila: When it comes to faking my own death, I take it very seriously. Yeah, I may have had to rip out some of my hair, tear my clothes. And a pint of my blood, but I had to make it look like a bear really did maul me. You know, I– I knew that… that none of that was gonna be enough. Especially not for ridge and the forresters. I knew that they would need more, so I– I gave it to them. Desperate times call for desperate measures, right?

Deacon: You cut off your own toe.

[ Sheila laughs ] Are you seeing things? Or did you really see ten toes? Because if you saw ten toes, then that cannot be sheila. Breathing claritin clear

Luna: Uh, you want me working with zende?

Hope: Yes. While you and rj are a great team, I mean, what you did for eric was extraordinary. Um, what we do here is a little different from couture. It’s more about self expression.

Zende: In couture, you make an entrance, in hope for the future you make an impact.

Hope: Exactly. And zende already has his finger on the pulse of our collection, what makes it work. I mean, his designs have been very important for our success. And rj, while I’m looking forward to what you bring to the table, zende just has a little more experience and seasoned talent to take over for thomas.

Zende: Uh, thank you for the opportunity. Wow.

Hope: I know you, uh, you’ll make the most of it. I– I don’t exactly know how things are going to work out. There is a lot of– there are a lot of things up in the air in my life right now. But I do know that hope for the future is in good hands. I mean, we have fresh faces, some new talent, and I believe that we will make the most of this opportunity. And I know you’ll bring out the best in each other. So luna, like I was saying before, I would really love it if you could work closely with zende. You know, stay by his side, absorb all of his knowledge. I mean, zende pretty much grew up in this industry. He learned from the best of the best, so I’m sure he has plenty of secrets to share.

Zende: I brought you some coffee.

Luna: Zende? Wait, what are you doing here?

Zende: I live here.

Luna: Wait, where’s rj?

Zende: I– I don’t know, luna, but he’s definitely not here.

Luna: Rj and I are in love. And I waited, and it was perfect, and what now I wake up here in this bed with you? I mean, what have I done?

Zende: Are you still considering telling rj?

Luna: Yeah, I mean, I think about it every day. Every second that I don’t say anything feels like a lie. And look, I’m not doing this to protect myself. I’m doing it to protect you and your relationship with your cousin.

Finn: Thank you for your patience and your understanding. Sheila has put a strain on us and our marriage.

Steffy: Yeah, I despise that woman. Everything she did to us, what she made me do. But I’m not gonna let anything or anyone come between us, okay?

Finn: Yeah, okay. It never will.

Steffy: We proved it again.

Finn: Yeah, yeah, we did. And I wish we didn’t have to face these challenges over and over. Sheila’s death has been difficult, but hey, we don’t have to worry about her anymore.

Steffy: I know. We can finally put sheila behind us and move on.

[ Cell phone rings ]

Finn: Hmm, deacon? Deacon, hey, uh, what’s up?

Deacon: Finn, where are you?

Finn: I’m– I’m with steffy.

Deacon: Um, listen, I need to see you. It’s urgent.

Finn: Why, what’s wrong?

Deacon: I can’t tell you on the phone.

Finn: You can’t tell me what this is about?

Deacon: It’s about your birth mother. It’s about sheila. I’m at the restaurant. Please get down here as quick as you can.

Finn: Yeah, I’ll be over there as soon as I can.

Steffy: What’s going on?

Finn: I don’t know. Deacon sounds upset.

Steffy: About what? Let me guess, sheila.

Finn: I don’t know, um… he wants me to go down to il giardino, and… no, look, hey, I don’t– just– let me deal with this as fast as I can. But look, hey, there’s no need to worry anymore, right? There’s no more fear. This might be the last time we ever have to talk about sheila. I’ll be right back.

Steffy: Okay.

[ Steffy sighs ]

Deacon: It can’t be… it can’t be. It can’t be. It can’t be.

Bother the bugs.

Hope: I hope I didn’t, uh, catch you too off guard with that.

Rj: You’re the boss, sis. It’s your call.

Hope: All right. Look, I know you enjoy working with luna, and you will be, I promise. I just think her spending time with zende will be very beneficial for her and her future.

Zende: You okay? I had no idea that hope was gonna have us working so closely together.

Luna: Yeah. No, I mean, um, I meant what I said. You know, I’m happy to pitch in and help out in thomas’ absence, but… look, it’s– it’s nothing personal, okay? You’re a great guy and a super talented designer, but it’s complicated. The night that we shared together?

Zende: There’s no reason for it to interfere with our work.

Luna: But I’m lying to rj. He doesn’t even know that we slept together, and keeping this secret is absolutely killing me. And the guilt is worse and worse every day, and working together is just gonna make that even harder.

Zende: I hate to see you struggle like this. It’s a messed up situation, but it’s not your fault.

Luna: I didn’t know what I was doing that night, but I do now. And I decided to lie to him, and I can’t do it. I mean, how am I supposed to show up to work every single day with this secret that’s eating me up inside? I can’t do it, okay? Rj needs to know what happened. He deserves to know the truth.

Finn: Sheila’s death’s been difficult, but hey, we don’t have to worry about her anymore.

[Breathing heavily]

Finn: Hey.

Deacon: Hey. Thanks for getting here so fast.

Finn: What’s going on?

Deacon: This is– it’s crazy. It doesn’t make any sense.

Finn: Okay. Well, you said it was urgent. Was it something to do with sheila?

Deacon: Um, man, I don’t know.

Finn: Okay, okay. Let’s just take a breath here. You’re all– you’re all wound up.

Deacon: You have no idea.

Finn: Okay, well, look, this is– this is normal, okay? The memorial service, it was… no, it got me too, you know? ‘Cause a lot of things came up. It’s been an emotional time. But, look, you— I’ve got to put this behind me, okay? Do you understand that? Steffy, she– she has been just incredible through all of this, but we can’t forget about the shooting. Trying to destroy our family. Every time sheila’s name comes up, it takes a toll on her. And I’m not gonna burden my wife with that, deacon, okay? I love her too much. So whatever– whatever this is, you need to just tell me so I can put sheila in the past once and for all. For steffy’s sake and for mine.

Deacon: Look, I get it. I get it. I want that for you, finn.

Finn: Okay, well, I think it would be good for you too. Okay? You– deacon. You need to let this go. Now. You cared about my mother. You were there for her. You gave her a respectful send-off. Even went to the crematorium.

Deacon: Yeah. Yeah, I wanted to stay with her as long as I could.

Finn: Yeah, you did everything that you could. More than most people would. Deacon, it’s— it’s over, okay? I know it’s hard to accept, but sheila’s dead.

Deacon: What if she’s not, finn? What if the person that I saw being cremated wasn’t sheila?
