THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

 You all right? I’m fine. I’m not sure sonny is, though. Am I late? No, I was early. Oh, okay. Um, how’s molly and tj? A little jumpy. Expectant parents. I hear ya. How’s kristina? Uh, she says being pregnant is not what she expected. It’s better.

[ Both chuckle ] Um, thank you for meeting me. Yes. You said you had a proposal? I want to make a significant donation to the city of port charles. Thanks for coming, drew. Absolutely, for sure. Okay, so, um, I guess this means that you made a decision? I’ve thought it through and talked it over with michael. And?

And I would be honored to be the spokesperson for the new tomorrow institute. Commissioner? Oh, detective bennet. This is unexpected. Uh, yeah. I was, uh, in the area, conducting a training exercise. Commissioner. Where do you want this?

[ Door buzzes ] Laura!

[ Chuckles ] Good to see you. Good to see you. Thank you, kelly. You may go. It’s procedure, ma’am. I understand. Especially for someone with an extensive history of escape. Thank you, kelly. Thank you. I’m kind of a celebrity around here. Sort of flattering.

[ Chuckles ] How are you feeling? A lot better. The — the new hip’s still healing, but it’s a lot less painful than the old one. Oh, I’m glad to hear it. And I don’t miss those rashes or that whole “not being able to breathe” thing, I can tell you that. You here to give me the lowdown on ace? You know, I wouldn’t hate prison so much if only I could see my grandson. Jason? Jason! Hey. Hey. Oh. What’s, uh — what’s wrong?

[ Sighs ] It’s sonny. He’s in trouble. And does one want to ask me any more questions? E top of my head a significant donation? That surprises you? Not at all. You have a long and impressive history of philanthropy. I can think of three programs off the top of my head that could benefit from your support. Why do I get the impression you don’t want to take it? Why do you think, sonny? Well, any — any donation from me is coming from a legitimate enterprise and also investments. I figured. But one needs to be sure. And does one want to ask me any more questions? Just one. Why come to me? Because you are the deputy mayor. You’re gonna know, right, where to put my money. And we both have children that are having a baby together. And that means a lot to me. How are things progressing with willow? Oh, incrementally. I mean, she came into drew’s office when we were going over the crimson budget. And when I went to leave them, she stopped me. What’d she say? She said if drew and i can manage to be civil to one another after everything I did to him, then maybe she was holding onto her anger at me a little too long, and maybe, just maybe, she can let some of those bad feelings go. Wow. That seems more than incremental. Yeah, I don’t want to get my hopes up too high, but right? What did you say? Well, I thanked her for saying that, and then I got the hell out of there before I started making lunch plans and offering to babysit.

[ Chuckles ] What? What? What did I do? No, no, no, no. You’re fine. I’m just, uh — I’m worried. Who knows what poison drew is putting willow’s ear about you. Oh, he’s not.

Not if he knows what’s good for him. Willow, I can’t tell you how happy and honored I am that you’re willing to work with the new tomorrow institute. Great?

[ Both chuckle ] It’s just that there’s — there’s been something that’s been kinda bugging me. Okay. I know that I sprung this on you, like, out of nowhere, and it just occurred to me that maybe that you feel pressure to say yes because — because you went to greenland, rescued my aunt liesl, and brought her back to port charles in time to save my life? Well, yeah. And I would never want you to feel a sense of obligation to me at all. You don’t owe me anything. Drew, I literally owe you my life. And that’s why I’m having second thoughts. Calvin, I told you that I took today off so that I could move into my new apartment. You did. And now you’ve assigned all the new cadets to help me move? Well, it’s just a few boxes. But you’re not allowing them to use the elevator. You’re making them bring said boxes up three flights of stairs. Ah, you can’t get a good cardiovascular workout on an elevator, can you? No. Okay. I really appreciate the gesture, but I’m telling you, if — if I get in trouble with internal affairs, I am so taking you down with me.

[ Chuckles ] Well, this is my doing, and I take full responsibility. So if I do go down for this, you’ll be in the clear with some shiny new recruits in the best shape of their young lives. I can’t have donna

stayingthe night over at sonny’S. Between ava being there and sonny going on and on about how I’m a traitor, it is not good for donna emotionally. That’s — that’s reasonable. So I went to tell sonny, but ava was there, and then she tried kicking me out, which is crazy. It’s like ava thinks she’s mistress of the manor or something. Maybe she thinks she is. Sonny was furious. And I expected that, I really did. But I was hoping once he got past his initial reaction that he would understand my position and respect it, but that’s not what happened. He just became more and more irrational. He even threatened to take me to family court, which is absurd. Yeah, now, that’s — that’s crazy. He has to know that he would lose that. He should. And because he didn’t, it made me think — is sonny off is meds? Thought about that, too. I asked him. He swears he’s taking his medication. I even went into his bathroom. I went through his medicine drawer. I checked his prescriptions. It looks like he’s taking them. Okay, but how did he react to that? He said just because we disagree about what to do with donna, that doesn’t mean he’s going off his meds. And he has a point. I may hate the way sonny’s living and the choices he’s making, but that doesn’t mean he’s headed for a breakdown.


I wanted to tell you — ace did the cutest thing. I’m sure everything he does the cutest.

[ Laughs ] It’s true, it is. But he sort of outdid himself with this one. Okay, so I’m humming him a lullaby. And just as he’s about to fall asleep, he starts to try to sing along.

[ Laughs ] Yeah, he starts making his own little sounds to the music. That is so wonderful. Hey, look, he’s already marching to his own drummer. Runs in our family, I guess. I guess. And y-you wanted to tell me that? I mean, like, when it happened, you thought, “I need to tell ace’s crazy grandma about this”? Well, I didn’t think of it quite like that, but yes. I did want to share that with you, heather. And in fact, um, I know this is not the same as seeing him in person, but I thought you might like to have that.

[ Exhales ] Thank you, laura. No, really. Thank you.

[ Laughs ] He is just the cutest thing ever. I think I see esme in him. Yes, he does look like esme. He does? You’re so lucky. I hope you know that. In terms of? You got to spend time with esme, really get to know her. I mean, at her worst, but also at her best. You know, I mean, sure, I got to spend time with her at spring ridge, but she didn’t really know who I was. And then, of course, there was her father. I hope that ryan is roasting over a pit in hell right now! Sorry. Oh, please, don’t be. ‘Cause he is a murdering bastard, right?

[ Chuckles ] Not unlike yours truly. Except I loved my little girl so much. And, yes, I did blame trina robinson and your grandson spencer and everybody else for all the bad things that happened to esme. But I believed in my heart that all those people deserved what esme did to them. So when they tried to put the blame on her, I mean, I did what I thought every good mother would do. I protected my daughter by — by punishing the people that hurt her. But now, laura, that I’ve been going over and over this in my head, I cannot for the life of me remember why I thought that killing those people, stabbing them with a hook, was gonna help my little girl. Any civic donations are subject to fiscal review by the city. Of course. And aren’t accepted solely at my discretion. Yeah, but with you in charge, I’m positive that my money’s gonna go where it’s needed the most. Well, that’s very flattering. No, it’s very true. But why now? My home’s in port charles. I raised my children here. And I want to help the community. I know that you are a private person. And if taking on this role demands that you share more of your personal history than you’re comfortable with…

[ Laughs ] What? Nothing. It’s just, you offered me this job, and now you’re trying to talk me out of it? No, I’m not trying to talk you out of it. You’d be perfect for this job! I know there’s nobody on the planet better for this than you are. I mean, you’re living proof that — that stem cell and bone marrow transplants from cord blood — thank you very much — can save lives, and that’s really not very great breakfast conversation, by the way. Drew, I’m a nurse. That’s true. Which is another reason you’re perfect for this. Not to mention the fact that you are warm and beautiful and charming. Okay, I am not sure where you’re hoping flattery will take you. I am getting a lot of mixed signals here.

[ Laughs ] I know. It’s not flattery. That’s just a list — a list of the many reasons that people will be able to hear you on this. All I’m trying to say is I don’t want you to do it if it compromises your privacy, or out of a sense of obligation. I appreciate everything you did for me. And it was heroic of you. I know that makes you uncomfortable, that you don’t see yourself that way. I don’t see myself as a hero because I’m not a hero. I just did — something completely, utterly heroic. I did the right thing. Okay. And here I am, alive and well,

because you did that right thing. Why can’t you be proud of that? I am. I’m very proud of that. And I always will be. So, tell me, how is it working for drew? I mean, after… you bought the invader, and I left you in the lurch? Well, I think I was referring more to you reporting him to the sec. Oh, that. And by the way, as for buying the invader, I have no regrets. You sure? Yeah. Because it gave you the leverage to get back to where you need to get to. And that’s money well spent. So was this part of your grand plan? To manipulate drew to get me back at crimson? No. Even I’m not that good. Oh, don’t sell yourself short. I think I was revealing a path to happiness post-sonny for you. And wherever that takes you is fine with me. Oh. So this was an entirely selfless act. Entirely selfless. That’s what I thought. Well, I’m not gonna deny that the invader is a surprisingly good investment and installing adrian dewitt as associate publisher was a genius move because now he’s reverted the style of the paper to tabloid, which has increased circulation.

[ Laughs ] That must drive alexis crazy. You must be hearing no end of it these days. Well, she’s still printing the hard stories, and more people are reading them because they don’t realize that’s what they’re buying. It’s a win-win. Even if alexis doesn’t realize it. So how much grief ishe giving you? I can take it. You know me. I’ll do whatever it takes to get when I want. I have to say, as much as I loved your old house, I think this place is perfect for you. I know. It’s nice, right? I mean, I-I couldn’t stay holed up at the metro court forever, so… stranded at a five-star hotel. Life is hard. It was nice, yes, but, you know, it wasn’t mine. No, I get it. And I understand that you needed time after everything with charlotte. Yeah, I did need time after what happened. Well, if you want to talk about it, we can talk about it. No, no, I’m fine. I mean, it’s not like I’m ever not thinking about it, but it’s beginning to go a little bit in the background now, you know. But she’s fine, right? Yes. Yeah, she just went back to boarding school in switzerland. So, yeah, she’s on her way. And you know this how? What? Have you and valentin been chatting? Look, the way sonny handled cyrus is proof that he’s not thinking clearly. So it is what happened in the pine barrens — hauling dex out there, planning to kill him when everybody in port charles knew he worked for sonny. It’s just — I-it’s sloppy. It’s impulsive. Sonny’s too smart to make a mistake like this. Then he’s gonna have to have his blood drawn and his medication recalibrated, and he refuses to do that. I mean, this is the frustrating part about bipolar disorder. It sends you spiraling while telling you that you’re fine and everyone else is wrong. Okay, let’s just take it one step at a time. Okay. Is there somebody that sonny still trusts who can convince him to get his blood drawn? The only person sonny trusts right now is ava, which is crazy because we all know that she switched morgan’s meds for placebos. You think she’s trying it out with sonny? Well, I-I think she’s capable of it, but I just don’t know what it would get her. And to be honest, sonny’s been off since nixon falls, and he’s been really bad since his breakup with nina. So maybe it’s not bipolar disorder. Maybe sonny’s pride is wounded and he’s got nowhere to put his anger.


Valentin and I, we just bumped into each other at the metro court bar the other night. And how’d that go? I was good, you know. We were very civil with each other. Oh, of course valentin can be civil with you. He’s been obsessed with you since the cold war.

[ Knock on door ] Expecting anybody? I don’t know. Maybe it’s detective bennet with another training exercise. Flowers for anna devane. That’s me. Thank you. Oh, wow. They’re lovely. Thank you so much. Oh, gosh. Let me guess. What? Uh, yeah. It’s valentin. It’s just congratulations on the new apartment. Shameless. And, uh, looking forward to dinner. Back up. You said that you talked to valentin. You didn’t say anything about dinner. Yes, I owe my life to you, and I will never, ever forget that. But I am not accepting this position out of any sense of obligation. The new tomorrow institute is doing important work. Getting people tested, recruiting donors can help save other lives like mine was saved. I want to be a part of that. Amazing. Then before we make it official, we should talk about scheduling. You might have to cut back hours at the hospital. That actually won’t be a problem. I have decided to leave my job there. Well, not because of this, I hope? No, no, because of my kids. When I was fighting leukemia, I kept saying how much I wanted to live to see my kids grow up. But after I recovered and got back to work, I realiz that bit by bit, day by day, their childhoods were passing me by. I have the privilege of being able to step back from my career. Most people can’T. But I have been given a second chance to be a mother to wiley and amelia, and I want to take full advantage of that. I know the feeling. Time with your kids — there’s, uh, nothing more precious. I was worried that drew had lured you back to crimson just to find new ways of punishing you. Yeah, well, that thought crossed my mind, but only for a second, because I really don’t think that drew would sabotage his own magazine. You have all new faith in him. No, it’s not faith. It’s more observation. I really can’t stand the guy. He’s arrogant, entitled, petty, and rude. Other than that? Other than that, he… is a savvy businessman. You sure he’s just not giving you a hard time?

[ Voice breaking ] It is a terrible thing to take people’s lives and only afterwards realize what that means, that those people all had people who loved them and who they cared about. How did I ever think that by killing people I would somehow help esme? Heather. Heather, this doesn’t excuse what you did. Heather. You were suffering from cobalt poisoning. Okay. No, listen to me. Listen to me. That line that you drew from wanting to protect your daughter to deciding that it was okay to kill people to do that — that line was drawn by the illness. And you were inside the illness at that time, so at that time, it made sense to you. I hear what you’re saying, and I — I want to believe that that’s right. But I knew the reasons for what I was doing right up till the minute that I had surgery. It’s just that now I-I can’t remember the logic. Just, I-I can’t conceive of why. But I can remember what I did. Every single moment. Okay, because now you’re outside the illness. And so you’re seeing things more clearly. And I’m seeing how other people see me, too. Boy… they must hate me. Jason: Let’s just go over a few things. Is it possible sny developed a-a tolerance to this dosage and the prescription needs to be adjusted? There’s only one way to find out. Right. All right. So who can reach sonny? Well, not a lot of people. Sonny’s convinced that everyone’s out to get him. I mean, dante is a possibility, kristina, but I wouldn’t want to involve her because she’s pregnant. Right. What about olivia? They’re still close. Or brook lynn? All options, yes. But if they were to approach sonny right now, he’ll know I’m behind it. So not only will he refuse to do it, it could damage his relationship with them, and then he’ll feel even more alone and persecuted. Okay. Is there anybody else you can think of?

[ Sighs ] Stella henry. Yeah. You think she would do it? I do, but think she has to witness his behavior firsthand. I mean, it’s hard. It is. And donna’s gonna be so upset that she’s not gonna see her father. And sonny so furious, he’s never gonna want to come to my house and see her. It’s a lot, you know? Well, I just — mr. Morgan. Ms. Spencer. I didn’t expect to see you here. Uh, well, I’m — I’m here visiting my best friend. What are you doing here? Official business. I have some questions for mr. Morgan.


Whatever the cause, you did do some really horrible things, but… you’re still human. You’re still ace’s grandmother. And as far as I can see, you’re still capable of love. Yeah, but I wonder if I’m only capable of love when it’s convenient for me. I discarded my children. Not just esme, but steven lars and franco. And I did all of that before the ski accident. Okay. But, heather, it’s not like you left them in the woods or by the side of the road, right? You made sure they were safe. Maybe I was sane enough back then to realize that i was really the thing that I wanted to keep them safe from. I-I was not in any condition back then to give them any kind of a good life. Wasn’t only till years later that I became obsessed with my children. I mean, I insinuated myself into their lives. I interfered with their relationships. I wonder — if I’d never had that hip replacement and had that metal poison my blood and my mind, you think I might have been a good mother? If memory serves, and it does, the entire reason you and valentin broke up was because you realized you couldn’t trust him. That was the reason, yeah. So then, why on earth would you have dinner with the man? Anna: Clearly, valentin does more for pikeman than just set meetings. You know, when you texted me, I was — I was with him. I bumped into him at the metro court bar, and he said he’d been out of the country, that he went to switzerland to deliver his daughter back to boarding school… that it was her idea. But now I’m wondering… if it doesn’t just make it easier for him to do pikeman’s bidding. It’s not like I think he’s suddenly trustworthy. Good. Then I don’t have to check you for a head injury.

[ Chuckles ] I hate to admit it, but… I miss him. I hope you’re not disappointed in me. Just a little bit. But whatever else I may think of valentin, I do know that he loves you. Drew and I have had some altercations, some of them quite fierce, but we’ve reached a kind of a quid pro quo. This quid pro quo — is this equally beneficial to both of you, or just to him? You know what? That’s an excellent question. Where are you going? I’m going to find out. I’ll be right back. Well, as you know, I was terrified, but now I feel silly because amelia has taken to swimming like — like a duck to water. Drew. Willow. Good morning, nina. Good morning. I-I didn’t mean to interrupt. I-I just — I need to run something past you for the next issue. I mean, it doesn’t need to be now, obviously, but sometime this morning. Anyway, that’s it. I’ll leave you to your morning. Actually, uh, nina, I would like you to be the first to know — if that’s okay with you? Yeah, absolutely. Know what? I have officially accepted the position as the spokesperson for the new tomorrow institute. Oh. Great. I’m so proud of you, if — if that’s something that I can be. I think it’s fine. Great. I’m very, very proud of you. Hey, I just had an idea. What if crimson does a story on the institute? And on willow? Well, I save you from being beaten, and you thank me by harassing my friend? Believe it or not, ms. Spencer, my being here has nothing to do with you. Well, I am present, so it does have something to do with me. And you know who’s not present? Jason’s lawyer. I’m gonna call diane right now. No, carly, don’T. Don’t, please. Don’t bother. Let’s just — let’s just get this over with. What do you think diane would say if she knew you said that? Carly, it’s gonna be okay. I’ll call you later. Fine. John: I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s calling your lawyer anyway. Probably realizes that ms. Miller will refuse to let you cooperate. And while I am impressed by her ability to obstruct an investigation without actually obstructing justice, I have no time today for ms. Miller’s legal pyrotechnics. We need to talk about pikeman.


I think the thing that made my relationship with valentin so complicated was the fact that we — we really did love each other. Yeah, that never goes away. Certainly not quickly, and most of the time, not completely. But I can’t share my life with someone I don’t trust. No, you can’T. No, but… you know, valentin — he understands me in a way that few men do. Yeah. You get each other. I mean, I-I don’t think he gets me quite the same way that I get him. Oh, no, you do. You see each other with perfect clarity. The only difference is valentin likes what he sees, and you don’T. Wow. Being the recipient of valentin’s devotion must feel amazing — to be seen, flaws and all, and still be loved so relentlessly. Yeah, it was something. It was. The tragedy of charlotte’s shooting will always be between you two. I know he doesn’t blame you. That doesn’t change how you feel about it. And you’ve only just started to recover. So I have to ask you, do you really think this dinner’s a good idea? Yes, uh, crimson is always looking for important stories to run alongside the arts and culture of fashion. And I would love to include an article about the new tomorrow institute, if it works for you as spokesperson. I can’t wait. Great. Well, someone from crimson will contact you. It — it just may take a little while. I still need to get up to speed on the institute. Oh, yeah, no rush. You just schedule something with the rep at crimson whenever. I’ll do that. Okay. Enjoy the rest of your morning. You too. Well, that looked like that went well. My daughter smiled at me. And she’s doing an interview for crimson. That’s wonderful. Good for you. And I take it your quid pro quo evened out a little. Oh, honey, right now, I’m way ahead. Valentin, I can put up with drew forever if he gives me access to my daughter. I should have asked before I pushed you together with nina. Drew, please. You’ve gotta stop treating me like I’m still that fragile woman in a hospital bed. I’m fine. I can handle this. Not that there’s anything to handle. It is an interview for a good cause. Oh, and it’s my job now. It sure is. Thank you. You, too. Always. Well, I will see what I can do and get back to you. That’s all I can ask. Good morning, jordan. Sonny. Hey, drew. Drew, you got second? Sure. What’s going on? Listen, uh, I’ve kind of… been thinking about it. I-I’ve reconsidered. I’m not gonna sell volonino’S. Oh. You know? Well, I can’t say I’m not disappointed, but, um, no harm, no foul. Yeah. Good luck on your — on your project. Thanks, man. Thank you. Yeah. Uh, and I-I hope to hear from you soon. Well, I need to get back to the office myself. Actually, do you have a second? There’s something that I want to pitch you. How different would my life have been if I’d gotten medical treatment that didn’t turn me into a monster? Would esme still be alive? And, you know, even though I did give her up, would I be well enough to maybe go find her, be a mother to her? Laura, when I think of all the years that I spent in prisons and in mental institutions, all the things that I’ve missed, I — there’s just no way to know what might have been. You’re right. I might have been a great mother. I might have been a terrible mother. I mean, maybe this person that I’ve become is the real me, and the cobalt just brought it out. There’s just no way to know. But there’s one thing I do know. I hurt a lot of people. And understanding now all the wrong that I’ve done and, you know, feeling the guilt and responsibility for all the damage that I did — I guess that’s all just… part of the punishment.


Heather, I know how painful this is. But I think that it’s a very good thing that you’re starting to realize the severity of your crimes, because you’re taking responsibility, you know? That means that you’re coming back to reality. A reality without my daughter or franco. Two of my children are dead, laura. And the third’s in prison, and I’m probably never gonna be able to see him. I mean, not that he wants to see me. But… I have my grandson, who, thanks to you, is going to have a happy life. Heather, I give you my word that I will do everything in my power to make sure that ace has the best possible life. Thank you. I was able to convince him to throw some federal money at revitalizing the city. Our city? Port charles. Okay. That is unbelievable. What did he want in return? He wants a lot of things. Such as? Such as his name, like, all over the place. How all over the place? Well, so far, all I’ve promised him is, a, uh — an esplanade.

[ Chuckles ] Okay, that’s fine. What else? Front-row seats at the dedication. Done. What else? Well, that’s it, so far. Okay. Well, let’s get it all in writing. And drew, I’m impressed. Don’t be too impressed, because I-I pitched mcconkey like I knew exactly what we were doing, right down to the last detail. And how much do you have planned? Other than the mcconkey esplanade, not very much. I got some rough notes.

[ Chuckles ] Post-its or napkins? Yeah. Both. Well, in government, we call that a working draft. How can I help you? Well, you know exactly what the city needs. You know, I’ve secured the funds to make it happen, but you gotta help me figure out how to make port charles as attractive and as accessible as — as it can be. Okay. Yes, I’ll do it. Amazing. I kinda thought it would be harder to convince you. Why? When it was basically my idea. I talked to you about urban renovation and reclamation, and you found a way to make it happen. I…do need you to answer one thing. How did you get mcconkey to sign on? I mean, how did you even get a meeting with him? He is notoriously inaccessible. Everything is righting itself. Well, almost everything. And I have you to thank for all of it. I’m always happy to help a friend. It’s complicated. It’s just dinner. Famous last words.

[ Sighs ] Valentin and I — we had a very intense personal relationship. And you’re right. What happened with charlotte is — is always going to come between us. The result of that is that we — we’ve never really been able to have a calm, adult conversation about — about it. Is that the reason for the dinner? To have calm, adult conversation? I-I think we need closure. I hope you know what you’re doing. So do I. Your business partner is sonny corinthos. The fbi arrested him last fall on suspicion of facilitating an illegal arms shipment for pikeman. Corinthos was let go for lack of evidence, but it only means he was covering his tracks. Sonny hasn’t spoken to me about pikeman or anything else. We know pikeman was doingbusiness in port charles because the ex-director of the wsb, jack brennan, is in pentonville right now. And he was arrested for conspiracy with roman hume, a pikeman employee. I wasn’t here when any of that went down. No. But sonny was. And it points to an ongoing association between him… and pikeman. To check into hotels as his alias.

Constantine. So nice to see you. If you don’t wanna wait, uh, I can have Harold take her, or one of the drivers. No, no, no, no. I, I, I wanna take her to school. Okay. Well, in that case, uh, why don’t you join me for some coffee? Uh, Rachel, uh, she had a blast at the aquarium. Yesterday and uh, she really loved having her daddy there too.

Yeah, it was uh, it was fun. It was fun. I mean, I would love to be able to spend more time with her if I could. Of course you would. Of course you would and I know Rachel wishes that too. And Brady, you know, it’s certainly in the realm of possibility.

Little early for visitors, isn’t it? Top of the morning, who goes there? It’s Steve.

Hey John. I asked Steve to come by. Yeah, why’s that? What’s going on? Because we have a plan. And I think it’s time that we let Steve in on it.

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

not necessary, Doc. We got everything under control here. Constantine is a dangerous man, and I want you to have backup. Now I know there is some Tension between you and Steve right now. But that’s exactly what Constantine wants. So are you going to let him drive a wedge between you after 40 years of friendship?

Listen, John. I don’t blame you for hating what I did. I hate it too. And I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make up for it. So will you please tell me what’s going on with you and Constantine?

Don’t do that. What? What did I do? Don’t, don’t tell me that it’s within the realm of possibility for me to spend more time with our daughter. Well Brady, it’s true. It’s true what? What? If, if what? If I just forget about her? The fact that you, you know, have put me through hell all those years and we just kiss and make up.

Oh, if I forget about the fact that you used our daughter as a way to get back at me for acting sanely from your insanity. Okay, Brady, you know, I am so sorry that you can’t let go of your resentment of me. The way I feel about you goes way beyond resentment, but let’s not do this. I don’t want Rachel to come down here and see us fighting again.

Can we stop? We can stop. I will let go of the subject of us. Good. So.

Oh, Rachel, um, said that she got me a, uh, a gift, a souvenir from the aquarium. She, uh, she did, she did. I actually have it. Um, it is a very nice keychain. Oh, that is so sweet. I’m going to treasure that. I hope it wasn’t too expensive, assuming that you paid for it. I, I, I paid for it. I did. Funny thing is, it’s just Rachel wants to pay me back when she gets her allowance.

Well, I will make sure she does. And, um, speaking of money, I just wanted to let you know that I won’t be hitting you up for child support after this month. I know that you were left out of your grandfather’s will. Mm hmm. Chris and I will continue to make those payments because I can’t pay you back. And I’ll continue to accept the visitation scraps that you’re willing to give me.

Because I know sooner or later you’re going to screw up, like you always do. And I will regain full custody of my daughter. Oh, Alex, I am so happy for you. I mean, I know that you were, you were expecting a really large inheritance, but this is, this is exceeding your expectations. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it is. Wow.

Amazing. You know what? I know that we’re due at Titan, but I think I think we need to celebrate. Yeah, you think so? I think we need to as well. In fact, I’m gonna take the day off, and I’m giving you the day off too. Yeah, well, you don’t need to work today or ever again for that matter, Mr. Heir to the Fortune.

Question is, what the hell am I gonna do with the fortune? I mean, obviously, besides buy myself a mansion. A yacht. A private plane and tickets to outer space. Well, you could donate it to charitable causes. I’m kidding, of course I’m gonna do that. I have a few other ideas what I’m gonna do with it as well.

I bet you do.

I’m sure Alex is very pleased with his inheritance. But as for me, How about it? For sake at all, just to have Victor back. Of course you would, Maggie. Because you’re not a greedy mercenary person. I’ve been very fortunate. I have more money than I could ever need, which is why I intend to share my wealth.

As I’m sure Victor expected I would. What do you mean? Oh, it’s a decision I made long ago. That if Victor was predeceasing me That I would become a philanthropist. I would donate the bulk of my inheritance to all worthy causes

Constantine

Turned me back into the pawn What? When? And how? When we were back in Caracas, you remember Megan Hathaway? She used a card to brainwash us. How do you know that? It, uh, it came to me in a memory. And what turns out, Constantine has that same card. Well, how did he get it? I have no idea how he got it. I have no idea how he knew how to use it.

All I know is the night that he lured me to the park pretending to be a new client, that’s when he pulled it out on me. My God, John, why didn’t you tell me any of this before? I didn’t remember anything until it happened again just the other day. And

right when he pulled that card out on me, and he dropped me back into the pond for the second time, that’s when Doc unexpectedly showed up, so all he could do was quickly pull me out of it. That’s when Doc and I kind of figured out something was going on. I asked John what he remembered about the conversation with Constantine, but He didn’t remember it.

So I knew that he had lost time. She knew something was happening. But she also knew that there was a way for me to fight back.

Fight. This is cause for a celebration. And I, I don’t know a better way to celebrate than with a little caviar and champagne, which I’m gonna go get right now. Wait a second. You can’t have champagne. But you can, and I can have sparkling cider. Okay, then I will get some sparkling cider as well. Okay. I’ll be back soon.

Show those flutes. Yes, show the flutes, I will. Thanks, baby. They say the best things in life are free, but I just happen to be shallow enough to like a few things that aren’t. So, Mr. Alex Kyriakos, heir to the massive fortune, we’re gonna do a lot more than drink bubbly to celebrate. Right. Mom. I am so proud of you, but not at all surprised that you’d be so generous.

Well, don’t give me too much credit. I obviously have been very fortunate not to need any more money than I already have. So, Justin is going to significantly up my charitable donation and underwrite several social programs. Very generous, as Sarah said. Baby. You know, I still feel terrible that Victor He split all of his assets just between Alex and me.

While everyone else was, for whatever reason, I can’t even begin to fathom what’s left out of his revised will. I mean, I want to respect his wishes, but I also think that it’s right that I should share a significant portion of my wealth with his other heirs. Like Beau and Phillip and Brady and, you know, Xander and Justin.

Maggie, no! You, you can’t do that.

Well, thank God you figured that out. But you’re going to fight back? How? And how can you two be sure that Constantine turned John into the pawn a second time? You want to take this one, Doc?

On the night that Constantine put John in a trance, he was still not himself when we got home. He seemed to be in a fog. Distracted. Anxious. John, come sit down. Sit down, right now, sit down. Right here, with me.

Lean back. I want you to be aware of your breathing. Take deep breaths. Go ahead. Easy, just easy, deep breaths. That’s good. Okay, let yourself go. Start to feel yourself relaxing. With every breath you take, double your relaxation. That’s good. Let it all go. Let everything go. Back to your breathing. Deep breath.

You’ll hear me. You’ll remember everything we talked about. Okay. You’ve done this before. Now when you feel that you’re ready, just gently raise your hand.

Breathing. Keep breathing. You’re doing fine. Good. Okay. Let it go. You’re there. You’re there. I want you to think back to earlier.

I want you to tell me what happened with Constantine.

And possibly, because it happened so recently, the Hitlerism was effective. And I was able to take John back into the room with Constantine from before I came in and Oh, God. I can see everything. I remember everything. That’s good, that’s good. Easy, easy. Easy. You’re doing fine. Tell me what happened.

Constantine.

He produced a red pagoda card.

He waved it in front of my face and I, I just lost, I lost all control.

And then all I could, all I could do was Just listen to his voice as he started talking about Maggie. What’d he say about Maggie? What’d he want you to do? He told me that my mission was to steal the signed pre nap that he and Maggie had out of the Kiriaka safe. Son of a bitch. I knew it was only a matter of time till he would try to take control of it again.

The question was, when was that going to happen? So we’re prepared.

What I meant to say was Was, was, was what? That Maggie should donate her entire inheritance to you, Constantine? Don’t be ridiculous. I signed the prenup. Not a penny will be mine. I, I, I just don’t think that Maggie should part with her entire inheritance without giving it a lot of thought. I have given it a lot of thought, Constantine.

Mom? For years. I mean, in fact, even before Victor died. I thought, what will I do with this inheritance if I survive him? Regardless of any of that, Who exactly are you to weigh in on Maggie’s decision, Constantine? I mean You’re not related to her. You’re just some Johnny come lately in her life. She’s only marrying as a bloody favor so you don’t have to leave Salem.

Sanders! I’m sorry, Sarah. I’m not gonna stay quiet about this one. This guy has the nerve to tell Maggie not to give her money away after she’s just finished explaining that it’s her heart’s desire. And we all know it’s a noble heart’s desire. thing to do, especially since you’re already a very wealthy woman.

Who the hell is he to criticize a decision? Hello Constantine. Explain why you said what you did. Please, I need to know. So defend yourself. Explain yourself.

God, what the hell is taking him so long?

Oh, hello there. Oh, Alex, I am so happy to see you. I am even happy to see you. Tell Rachel that I’ll be waiting for her in the car. Oh, I’ll tell her. Damn, you are looking sexy. Thank you,

So you say you prepared. We began preparing John to resist the power of the card. To be honest with you, we weren’t sure it was even possible at first. Look, we’re aware that there are great advances in deprogramming techniques. You’re, you’re both aware that they’ve been very effective in Harris’s case.

So I contacted my colleagues over at Bayview and um, with their help, we’re hoping the same techniques Can work for John. So, Doc and I, we, we tried those techniques on me. Right here. You’re doing great. You’re doing great. Continue breathing.

Continue relaxing. You’re doing great.

All right. I want you to listen to me right now. I’m gonna tell you something important.

Whenever you Are confronted or approached with a pawn card. You will have a mantra. You can repeat it to yourself.

The mantra is a positive presence defeats a negative past. A positive presence defeats a negative past. Past. Past. Past. And then last night, Maggie called us over to tell us about her engagement to Constantine. But of course, we already knew about that from the groom to be, but we really acted surprised.

And then Maggie got called away on a meeting, Doug left as well, and that left Constantine and I alone. Unpredictably enough. He pulled out that card and ordered me to steal that prenup.

So what happened? Did you get it? Oh yeah.

So I handed over the prenup to Constantine and he looked it over.

So then he took out a lighter. Set the print up on fire and he burned it in a trash can.

That is all she wrote. So your technique didn’t work.

To the contrary.

Thank you, Maggie, for allowing me to defend myself. Oh, so to speak it is. Sand here.

I love what a big heart you have, Maggie. I apologize for overstepping. I respect and admire your the nobility of your plan to donate your fortune in the most honorable of ways. Well, thank you, Constantine. For clarifying your reaction.

Oh, sorry. I’ll take care of him. Oh, no, no. Please let me. Any minute, I will take care of you. My little angel here. Well, it is time for my walk. I shall be leaving as well. At the risk of repeating myself, Maggie, I just want to say how proud I am of you. Thank you.

Man, who’s going to take you to the garden? Come on.

Like hell he’s proud. I mean, my God, how can your mum not see through that greedy son of a bitch? Shh. Well, it was only obvious to me that he was horrified at her plan to give away her money. No. No. It was obvious to me too. Pretty thrown by it. Thrown? I was more than thrown. I was appalled. And then, well, Maggie gives him the opportunity to defend himself.

And he trots out some lame half assed apology and everything’s fine. He’s a grown man, Sarah. A dangerous one at that. You heard my mom. He is not gonna get a dime from her. I mean, there’s a prenup for one thing. Still. Still what? I don’t think that’s gonna stop him. Baby, come on. He signed a legal document that stipulates he will not get anything from my mom.

Nothing. How is that not going to stop him? I don’t know. I just have a very bad feeling about this. Chill the flutes.

Did you forget your key? Hi.

Oh, hi, Brady. I, look, I, I, I should have called. I’m sorry. I wanted to talk to you and I was driving by and I was just hoping that you might be alone and at home. Well, I’m not going to be alone for long because, um, Alex is actually due back any minute now. Um, I wouldn’t hold my breath on that, actually. What?

Um, may I? Looks like you’re celebrating something. Yeah, um, the champagne is gonna be for Alex, of course. He just found out that his inheritance has come through. Ah, yeah, that’s, that’s, that’s great. Good for him. Not so good for you, though. I know. It’s really unfair that, um, Victor left everything to Maggie and Alex.

Yeah, I try not to think about that. Anyway, that’s not what I wanted to talk about. Okay. What, what is, what is it? Therese, I, uh, look, I just, I just came from the DiMera mansion and Alex, uh, He showed up and he and Kristen are hanging out.

Really? Really. I don’t know. He just waltzed right in like he owned the joint and just walked right up to her. A little bit of a fat sloppy kiss on her. Right in front of me, actually. I see. Well, you didn’t come home the other night. And, uh, given what you’ve just witnessed, they They’re obviously sleeping together.

Obviously, yes. And that doesn’t upset you? No. No. I’m over her. I mean, I The only reason I give her the time of day is because we share a daughter. Okay? Couldn’t care less. Are you upset? Me? Are you upset that Alex and Kristen are currently, uh, an item. Yeah, I am, actually. I mean, I broke up with him, so really I’m to blame, but God, this might have just been the biggest mistake of my life.

One of the biggest, anyway.

Oh my God, Alex, that was, uh, some performance. Have you ever thought of trying your hand in acting? That wasn’t acting, Kristen. Anyway, the reason why I’m here is to ravish me. Actually, I told Theresa that I was going to run out and grab a nice bottle of champagne to celebrate being the new heir to a rather large fortune.

And then it dawned on me that the best thing Champagne is undoubtedly in the DiMera wine cellar, which I will pay for, of course. Oh, don’t worry about it. I’ll go fetch you a bottle. Oh, Well, but, you know, before you go, though, it also occurred to me that right now, at this moment, I would much rather celebrate like this with you.

Okay,

look, I, I admit that Constantine’s reaction to my mom wanting to give away her inheritance was a bit off. Off, Sarah. It was more than off. It was outrageous. To you. But not to her, obviously. Um, can we please get off the crass subject of money and just talk about how lucky we are to have each other and our wonderful little girl?

I’m sorry if my grave scene right now made you think that I’m not the one. Extremely grateful to your mom for being so caring and generous with us over the years because I am very grateful And I’m even more grateful to be sharing my life with you Because you Are the love of my life You’re the love of my life So, I mean what you’re you you’re

in love with Alex Is that why you’re sorry you broke up with him? I don’t know if I’m in love with Alex. I’m not even sure if I know what that means. I’ll tell you what I think it means. It usually means when you have a romantic attachment to somebody and they are just incredibly important to you and and it feels like you can’t live without them.

Then yeah, I am. I’m in love with Alex. Sort of, anyway. Sort of. Well, especially because he’s heir to this big fortune now, right? So, okay, sorry, that was cynical. Uncalled for. I’m perfectly aware that you don’t have a mercenary bone in your body and that you’d be perfectly comfortable living in severe austerity.

Who the heck is that? Who’s that, Alex? I guess he did forget his freaking key. Teresa, I I’m out.

So?

So I know this whole thing started, you know, about trying to make Brady and Theresa jealous and all, but Maybe I’m just speaking for myself, but I am thoroughly Enjoying the ride.

I am thoroughly enjoying the ride as well. But, you know, I can’t go any further. You know, it’s just a fun ride. Oh, I know. Because you only have eyes for Brady, right? Well, he is the father of my child. And, um, the And you and Teresa? You only have eyes for her? Yeah, I care about her, yeah. But that doesn’t necessarily stop me from succumbing to your many charms, Miss DiMera.

Oh, Alex. It’s coming with.

How can you say your techniques worked? John, you still sold the prenup and let Constantine burn it. Not yet. Partner, that prenup right there. The one that Constantine burned was a fake that I gave him. Little did he know, I broke into the Kiriaka safe earlier that evening.

I stole the original prenup and I replaced it with a fake, and that is the one that I gave Constantine. And that is the one that he burned.

Brilliant, huh? Yeah. Brilliant.

Here we are. Our little angel is quite calm now. She actually gave me a couple of smiles. Well, that’s because she adores her nana. Oh, I adore her. Her precious girl. Um, mommy, we have to, we have to get going. But, um Before I do, I want to talk to you about Constantine. Okay. Um, well, Xander and I We’re talking, and um, we were just wondering what happens after the wedding.

I mean, I know that it’s a marriage in name only, so he can stay in the country, but then what? Hmm. Well, I’m not sure I know what you mean. I think what Sarah’s trying to say is that we’re concerned on your behalf, Maggie, about how Constantine’s going to support himself. I mean, is he going to get a job? Or is he just going to continue to live here?

Off of you? Forever?

Nice to see you, lady. Mr. Millionaires, what are you doing here? Theresa, I need your help to, uh, to, uh, help me get a, um, a wedding present. Wedding present? Yes. Who’s, who’s getting married? Well, I guess you’re the last to know that Maggie and I are engaged. What? Yes, we are going to be tying the knot, as you say.

Well, I hope I am not disturbing you. You know, Teresa, we can talk about this later, huh? Yeah, sure. I’ll text you later, um, about wedding gift ideas. No, by all means, um, continue your discussion. I was on my way out anyway. Are you sure? I am sure. Okay, thanks for coming by Brady. I’ll talk to you soon. Right.

Well, soon. My God, how do you just show up here with no warnings? I’ll tell you why. Maggie just announced that she’s giving most of her fortune to charitable causes. And to some of Victor’s heirs, including Brady. So what? So what? So, you’re giving me Alex’s half is now only more urgent. Because I need my cut as per our plan.

Yeah, well, I’m not sure that that’s gonna happen. Well, you better make it happen, Teresa. And you better find a way to get Alex back into your bed and keep him there. If not, there will be consequences. I will have to say, this is not a good idea. This is better than going to the gym. Really? Yeah. Really? So you’re telling me that making love to me is better than what?

A few miles on the treadmill? Uh huh. 30 minutes or so on the elliptical? Infinitely better. Wow. High praise. Wow. What are you doing? Are you in the media? No, no, not, not that. But I am thinking I should probably head home. Oh. I told Teresa I was running out to grab champagne and caviar. So, yeah, she texted me a few times.

She’s wondering where I am. Okay. Well, I guess you just have to go. Yeah, I probably should.

Although, um, Although, um, what? I mean, I Could tell her that, you know, It’s taken me a very long time to drive and all this traffic to find them Finest champagne and finest beluga caviar. Uh huh.

I mean, what do you, can I say that? Yeah. I can say that, right? Yeah, you can. Okay. You know what else? What? You can say that. Now, what else do you want to say? I just, I don’t think there’s much of a rush. Well, I don’t think there’s much of a rush either. I hate it.

Well, this is something to celebrate. Yeah. You conned the con. Yeah, but I don’t feel much like celebrating. I wanted to believe that Constantine had forgiven me, but now I, I know that not only did he plan to have his revenge on me, but also we were right all along about his intentions about coming to Salem.

Yeah. He wanted to take everything that Victor had. His money? And Maggie. Now we’re going to have to tell her all about it. Uh huh. All about how he lied about his feelings for her. And his intentions to steal Victor’s inheritance away from her. If she adores him, she’ll be heartbroken. Yeah. Hand loaded for bear.

Knowing Maggie, that bastard won’t know what hit him.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Victor: Hey, son.

Nick: You’re back.

Victor: Yeah, I am.

Nick: Uh, how’s mom? She settled in?

Victor: Yeah. Couldn’t stay with her very long.

Nick: And how about you? Did you get some sleep? I know this is very hard for you.

Victor: Much harder for your mother.

Nick: I know, dad. But mom made the decision to go to rehab, all right? Everybody knows how hard you worked to be there for her and to support her, but now it’s time we let the professionals handle this.

Victor: Easier said than done.

Nick: Yeah. Well, while mom’s getting the help she needs, you gotta take care of yourself, too. And remember, that other threat is dead and gone. We take the wins where we can, no matter how we get them.

Diane: Jack. Thank god you’re home. Where were you all night? I– I was so worried. And then I finally got your message this morning.

Jack: I am sorry. I should’ve called to tell you I was okay. Time got away from me.

Diane: Yeah, but where were you? I mean, I– I even tried the office and you didn’t pick up.

Jack: Diane.

Diane: What?

Jack: I wanna tell you everything, but you need to hear me out before you react.

Diane: Why do you sound like that?

Jack: Because I don’t think you’re gonna like what I have to say.

Phyllis: Hey, pretty. Hey.

Summer: Oh, mom.

Phyllis: I was hoping I’d see you.

Summer: Hi.

Phyllis: How you doing? You wanna have a coffee or breakfast, or… did you sleep last night?

Summer: Um, I slept at the abbott house. I– I just didn’t wanna be away from harrison.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Summer: Honestly, being here right now feels off.

Phyllis: Oh, I– I totally get it. Well, I mean, I’ll go back to the house with you, if you… or not. Listen, it’s your call. Whatever. You should be alone with harrison. He needs you right now.

Summer: Yeah, we will spend time together, the three of us, soon, I promise.

Phyllis: Yeah, yeah. Hey, listen, I want you to know that I’m really proud of you. You’ve been incredible. Very strong. Brave. Yes, brave. You’ve been a warrior, and most importantly, you’ve been an amazing mom.

Summer: I don’t feel brave. Last night, I slept next to harrison’s bed, and I just– I kept on jerking awake, just to make sure that he was still there. I’m only here now to see about getting some help for him.

Phyllis: Of course. Of course.

Summer: I mean, kyle and i keep on reassuring him, telling him that we love him, but I just– I don’t know that that’s enough.

Phyllis: It’s enough. Hey, listen, if you need anything from me, you just say the word, okay?

Summer: Thanks, mom. I actually mean professional help.

Phyllis: Oh, of course. Well, hey, you’re being proactive, and that’s great. Looking for a therapist, make sure it’s someone warm and kind and empathetic to a child that age.

That gum’s dull.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Victor: I hate all this, son. Leaving your mother there by herself, all alone with strangers. I’m her husband, for heaven’s sake. I should’ve been there. Help her through this.

Nick: You know that’s not how this works. Dad, you can’t fix her ms. You can’t help her with this. She went to rehab willingly. There was no intervention. She made this decision on her own.

Victor: Well, it wasn’t on her own. She was with a jack abbott.

Nick: What does jack have to do with this?

Victor: The son of a bitch almost killed her.

Diane: We promised to never keep secrets from each other, so whatever it is, just, um, tell me.

Jack: I saw nikki last night at the athletic club. She was drunk, as drunk as I’ve ever seen her. Tried everything I could to get her to sober up. I begged her to leave with me, to go to a meeting. I tried everything I could to get through to her, and she was just so detached, so distant, so defeated.

Diane: Defeated? But jordan’s gone, and claire and harrison are safe. I– I’d think she’d be relieved.

Jack: I guess the stress had finally gotten to her, the accumulation of all the things that had piled up around her. These relentless attacks from jordan have ended, but this has been a fight she’s been battling for months and months without any sign of if or when it would end.

Diane: Well, it’s– it’s a lot for anyone to face, even someone without an addiction.

Jack: Well, nikki is definitely an addict, and I– I could not do anything to pull her back from the cliff she was on.

Diane: Well, is she all right? What happened?

Jack: I was scared. I was guilt-ridden. I’d failed her as a sponsor. I’d– I had to do something to save her, and there were no half measures. And I came up with a thought. An extreme thought, perhaps unthinkable, but if it worked, if I could make it work, I had to try it.

Diane: All right, jack, stop. Just tell me what you did last night.

Summer: I mean, the horrible things that she said to harrison, the lies that– that we never wanted to see him again.

Sharon: That is the cruelest thing you can say to a child when their parents are their whole world.

Phyllis: Oh, she’s a sick bitch.

Sharon: Phyllis, um, you know, maybe you should rein in your anger a little bit when you’re around harrison. I know that this is difficult, if not unbearable, but harrison’s already been through enough stress as it is.

Phyllis: Okay, I’m not clueless. Sharon, I would never talk like that in front of harrison, but we’re adults here, and it’s very emotional, and I think the entire world would agree with me if they knew what jordan did to that little boy.

Summer: Mom, I love you.

Phyllis: I love you, too. Do you want me to just chill out?

Summer: Please. Thank you. We are all on the same team here. We just want what’s best for harrison, right? That’s why I asked sharon to meet me here.

Sharon: Yeah, I think it’s a great idea to think ahead for anything that could happen, you know, especially in a situation like this, so I would be happy to recommend a therapist who would be a great match for harrison.

Summer: I just wanna know what to look out for, keep an eye on the fallout, you know?

Sharon: Okay, well, I will text you her name and contact information. This woman is wonderful. She’s highly skilled in dealing with children.

Summer: Thank you so much, sharon. I’m– I’m gonna go call her right now. Excuse me.

Phyllis: You’re very good at that. You know, being soothing and talking, even though you’re not in the therapist business anymore.

Sharon: Well, thank you. I’m always happy to help. And if you need any help, someone to talk to…

Phyllis: You?

Sharon: Well, no, not me somebody else.

Phyllis: Yeah, somebody else, of course, I figured.

Sharon: You figured, right?

Phyllis: Yeah, that would be crazy. When my doctor gave me breztri for my copd

Sharon: I, uh, I know how much summer means to you.

Phyllis: Yes, it’s just– it’s hard when she’s upset and I can’t do anything to fix it.

Sharon: Well, I can imagine how worried you must’ve been about summer and harrison. Um, but everyone is safe now. And from what I can tell, summer has turned out to be a great mother.

Phyllis: Yeah, she really has. Mariah seems like a great mom, too. Look at us. But harrison and summer, they’ll be all right, right?

Sharon: Well, you will make sure that they are. Um, I’m sorry. Could you tell summer that I had to run?

Phyllis: Yes, to your tech empire, right? The one I didn’t get a job at.

Sharon: That’s the one. Um, please do remember to give summer my goodbyes and tell her to keep me posted.

Phyllis: No thank you.

Summer: Sharon left?

Phyllis: Yes. Yes. Coffeehouse owner, tech mogul, she left. Um, did you get in touch with the doctor?

Summer: I did, yeah. I actually think that she’s gonna work out. And if she doesn’t, then we will find someone who will.

Phyllis: Definitely. That is the spirit.

Summer: You and dad always fought for me. I’m never gonna stop fighting for harrison, either.

Nick: This doesn’t make any sense. Mom was out overnight. Then she comes back and says she’s ready for rehab, but jack could’ve killed her? How?

Victor: When I was with you and your sister, I got a message from our security team saying that they had spotted your mother at the athletic club.

Nick: Yeah, they thought that she was drinking.

Victor: She was in a room to do just that.

Nick: But jack was with her, trying to get her to go to a meeting or something?

Victor: When I walked into the room, the paramedics were there.

Nick: Did she have alcohol poisoning or something? Is that why she decided to go to rehab?

Victor: No, apparently they were there for jack abbott. He and your mother had done shots together. And he took some damn pills and opioids, collapsed and your mother called the paramedics.

Nick: This doesn’t make any sense, dad. Jack has been sober for years.

Victor: Your mother claims that jack abbott planned all this in order to shock some sense into her.

Nick: Oh, my god. Okay, so… jack takes pills as some sort of… if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em gesture to… I guess show mom a mirror of what she really looks like so she’ll be worried about him the way he’s worried about her?

Victor: Yeah. Insane and idiotic.

Nick: I guess it worked. I mean, mom seemed committed to getting sober when we saw her earlier.

Victor: Your mother should never have chosen him as a sponsor, all right? Jack abbott failed one more time. He fails at everything.

Nick: Yeah, but if mom’s committed to getting the help she needs now, does it really matter what he did?

Victor: Yeah, it does matter. She could’ve been the one who needed the paramedics. He could’ve killed her.

Nick: Well, it sounds like jack could’ve died too. He risked his life to save mom’S. And now, mom’s willing to get the help she needs because of jack.

Jack: No, I’m saying I couldn’t get through– hey, how’s my grandson?

Kyle: He’s a little on edge, but he’s settling in. Said he was happy his mom spent the night.

Diane: Yeah, I’m glad they had each other.

Kyle: What about you? I know victor was here earlier. It sounded like the two of you were getting into it.

Jack: Oh, you know victor. I’m always to blame for something.

Kyle: So what exactly is victor blaming you for?

Jack: You know, could we discuss this another time? I– I– your mother and I need some time to talk.

Kyle: Um, are you dodging me? Because I get the feeling that there’s something more going on here.

[]

Diane: What more could possibly go on? Everyone’s already been through so much.

Jack: Your mother’s right. Victor sometimes needs a punching bag. Old habits die hard.

Kyle: Okay. I’m gonna go to the office, grab my tablet and I promised harrison a surprise.

Diane: Oh, that’s nice. He can focus on a surprise. Oh, do you want me to sit with him for a while?

Kyle: No, no. He’s upstairs watching a movie. I hope he’ll feel safe enough to relax and doze off.

Diane: He’ll get through this, kyle. We’ll make sure of it.

Kyle: I’m gonna ask mrs. Martinez to keep an eye on him while I’m gone.

Jack: Oh, no, no, no. You don’t have to do that. I’m– I’m gonna work from home. If he needs anything, I’ll take care of him.

Kyle: So you’re not going to the office at all? Wow, must’ve been a rough night. Hope you’re okay.

Diane: You know, I can see why your dad probably needs some down time. He’s been pulled in so many different directions lately. Worrying about harrison and ashley. Nikki. Work. He could probably use a break.

Kyle: So does that mean you’re not going to the office either?

Diane: No, I am dressed and ready for that r&d meeting this afternoon.

Kyle: Yeah. Glad you remembered.

Diane: Ha.

Kyle: Well, let me know if harrison needs anything. I’ll be back as soon as possible.

Jack: Even with all the chaos, there’s still tension between you.

Diane: Uh, we’re fine. I really wanna get back to that conversation that we were having before kyle walked in. About whatever it is you need to tell me that you clearly don’t want him to know.

Jack: No. You’re right. I don’t want him to know.

Diane: Jack, you’re making– you’re making me nervous.

Jack: You have to understand why things happened the way they did.

Diane: When you were with nikki all night.

Jack: Nikki had bottles of vodka lined up. It was clear she was going to drink herself into oblivion. I thought of everything I could, and the only thing I could come up with that might jolt her into hearing me… was joining her.

Diane: So, you drank?

Jack: Yeah.

Diane: Oh, well, I– I can imagine that a sponsor isn’t supposed to drink in front of an alcoholic on a bender, but that’s hardly extreme, and I can’t imagine that it worked.

Jack: No, it– it didn’t work. And that’s when I made the second decision… to arrange to get some opioids.

Diane: What? Have you lost your mind?

Jack: I told nikki if she was determined to go to rock bottom, I would go there with her. It was like old times. I made the phone call, the pills were delivered.

Diane: Oh, please tell me that it was just a threat, that you didn’t actually plan on going through something so insane. Jack. How could you do that to yourself? How could you do that to me?

Nick: I got your message. Have you talked to summer today?

Phyllis: Uh, yeah, she was just here with sharon, no less. Uh, she wanted to talk to sharon about a possible referral for someone, um… someone for harrison to talk to.

Nick: Our daughter’s on top of things. She’s rising to the occasion.

Phyllis: Definitely. I’m not sure she’s really processed everything that’s happened.

Nick: Well, you know, it’s, um… it’s tough when you’ve been running on fear and panic and adrenaline for so long. It’s probably very difficult to settle back into a nice, normal life. There is a chance that it’s a crash landing instead.

Phyllis: Yeah. I think we have to keep our eye on her. We keep our eye on her, and she keeps her eye on harrison.

Nick: So, how are you? You okay?

Phyllis: I mean, I would’ve been happier if I saw jordan die. You know, I would’ve been happier if I saw her drown and fight for her last breath on her way to hell. And it’s the truth, it’s how i feel, and I would only tell you something like that.

Nick: Yeah, it’s probably best if you keep that to yourself. I would’ve called yesterday.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue…

Phyllis: You know what this whole thing reminds me of? Thank you.

Nick: Thanks.

Phyllis: Some psycho bitch going after a kid to get back at another adult. You know what it reminds me of?

Nick: Right there with you. Patty.

Phyllis: Patty. She knew about summer’s peanut allergy. So crazy and deranged, self-pitying. Patty, I mean, she made sure it was in summer’s system, those peanuts. Put her in a coma for a long time.

Nick: You know, we thought we were gonna lose summer, but we got her back.

Phyllis: Yeah, but it was hard. There was so much time that went by with no oxygen, and she had such a hard time bouncing back. And she couldn’t talk or read or respond.

Nick: Who got her through that?

Phyllis: We both got her through that.

Nick: No. No, that was you, phyllis. You took her to that clinic. You were by her side every hour, every minute, every second of the day for months and years. It was you. Summer remembers so little of that time. It might be that way for harrison, too. You don’t know.

Phyllis: Oh, I remember. I think summer will remember, too, you know? She’s calling for harrison, getting him ready for school and he doesn’t answer. She’ll remember. The only thing I regret is that I wasn’t able to take that jordan psycho to hell myself. And I know it’s not pretty. I know it’s not nice, it’s mean, but it’s how I feel.

Nick: You’re just being honest. And it’s not like you’d be going up against a lesser opponent, you know? If jordan had somehow survived and you two ended up in a ring together, I certainly would be cheering for you.

Phyllis: Well, thanks.

Nick: For what?

Phyllis: For always having my back. And you do always have my back. And for getting me. Thanks. Supergirl’s a supermom. We did good. Despite it all, we did good.

Kyle: Sharon, good to see you.

Sharon: Kyle, nice to see you, too. Um, I just met with summer.

Kyle: Oh, you’re helping her find someone for harrison to talk to?

Sharon: Yes, I think she may have even spoken with her already.

Kyle: Well, that’s great, thank you. I was just gonna pick harrison up a surprise.

Sharon: Well, don’t forget to take care of yourselves, too. I mean, that goes for summer as well. All of you have been through a really terrible ordeal and it may take some time to heal.

Kyle: The entire time harrison was gone, my stomach was in knots. All I could think about was how scared he was and I felt helpless, not knowing where he was or if he was even alive. It was the worst feeling I’ve ever experienced.

Sharon: And yet you saved him, kyle. Hold on to that. You saved him before jordan was able to cause him any more harm.

Kyle: But how do we know how much harm she did cause him?

Sharon: Well, I’m sure the therapist will walk you through all of that. But he’s young, kyle. He’s resilient and he’s surrounded by love and support. Oh, summer, hi. I’m sorry I had to run before you finished your call.

Summer: No, please, you are great. Just giving me the contact information and talking things through a little.

Kyle: Same for me just now. Thank you.

Sharon: You’re both very welcome. And if you need any more help, just don’t be afraid to ask.

Kyle: Thank you, sharon.

Summer: Thank you so much. Um, what’s harrison doing? Who’s watching him?

Kyle: Um, he’s at home watching a movie I figured he needed time to decompress.

Summer: Who’s watching him?

Kyle: My folks and mrs. Martinez are keeping an eye on him.

Summer: Okay. Good. Uh, that’s– that’s good. That’s good.

Kyle: Were you able to actually speak to a therapist?

Summer: I was, yeah. She seems really amazing. She said that she can talk to harrison directly or she could talk to us, walk us through how to talk to him about everything and what to look out for. She’s just gonna let us take the lead.

Kyle: That’s great. Thank you for handling that. It’s better to be safe than headed off of the pass.

Summer: I totally agree. Which is why there’s something else that I really wanna discuss with you. And I hope you’re not gonna fight me on it.

Kyle: Okay. I’m listening.

Summer: I don’t want claire anywhere near harrison. At least not anytime soon.

Jack: I wanted to shock nikki. She knows vodka isn’t my downfall. Pills are. So, I had to come up with some way to open her eyes.

Diane: And you were willing to risk your life to do that? Pills mixed with alcohol?

Jack: I know my limits.

Diane: How do you know the pills weren’t laced with something, huh? You don’t know what they’re putting in them these days.

Jack: Any drug could be tainted with something potentially lethal. It wasn’t like it was my first time. So, I called my dealer. My old dealer.

Diane: Oh. Okay. That’s comforting. You’ve kept in touch with a drug dealer? I thought you said you hadn’t used pills in years.

Jack: I haven’T. I haven’t talked to him in years. But his stuff is pure.

Diane: Oh, my god. You trusted your life with a career drug dealer?

Jack: I took a risk, and it paid off.

Diane: What do you mean, it paid off?

Jack: Nikki has agreed to go to rehab. She has admitted that’s the only way she’s going to get clean. And it took my downfall to do it.

Diane: What, and you couldn’t have just pretended to take a pill? You know, stick one in your mouth and then spit it in the trash?

Jack: Believe me, I thought of that. No, nikki, even drunk, is too savvy for me to pull that kind of stunt. I’m not that good an actor. So, I had to go for it for real.

Diane: How– you took an incredibly foolish and dangerous risk with little or no regard for me or for your family. No wonder you didn’t want kyle to know about this. The fact that you could’ve died doing something so– so stupid is just beyond my comprehension.

Jack: It wasn’t like that.

Diane: Yes, it was! You put nikki newman’s sobriety above your own. And you might think that what you did was so courageous and so noble, but you know what? I think it was incredibly selfish. Schwarzkopf

Kyle: You can’t be serious right now. How can you still think claire’s a part of this kidnapping?

Summer: That’s not what this is about, kyle.

Kyle: No, this is what this is about. Claire is just as much jordan’s victim as harrison was.

Summer: Okay, that’s my point. Claire is an obvious reminder of this horrific experience for harrison. If what she’s telling us is true.

Kyle: If?

Summer: Then that means that harrison actually saw her get drugged by jordan. How could he not think of that every time he sees her?

Kyle: Right, no, I think you’re focused on the wrong issue here. Harrison may need to talk to somebody to put things into perspective. If that’s the case, we will absolutely get him that. But you saw how happy he was to see claire this morning. Maybe it’s good for him to see that she’s actually fine.

Summer: We have to be the parents here, kyle. We have to make the decisions, okay? Harrison might wanna eat brownies for every meal, but we’re not gonna let him do that because we are the ones that have to create boundaries for him. He might want to hang out with claire. We don’t know how that’s gonna affect his recovery.

Kyle: Okay, did you ever think that maybe the opposite is true? That it reinforces, despite what they went through, that they’re both actually fine? That we hear and respect his needs and wants? You’re going to an unnecessary extreme here.

Summer: Is that even a thing when it comes to protecting your child?

Kyle: Are you implying that I don’t wanna protect my child? Of course, I do. Harrison means the world to me. I would give up my life for him.

Summer: Okay, then why does it matter so much to you? Claire might be fine, but why does she need to be in his life? Why? So many people are gonna come in and out of his orbit, but we are the constants. Our bond with him is the thing that matters the most, and it’s time to focus on that. Nothing else.

Diane: What if I had lost you? Did you even think about that for a minute? What if I had woken up today with the news that you were dead, that you had od’d in some hotel suite with nikki newman? Can you imagine what that would’ve done to me? To our family? Did you even consider that?

Jack: It was never going to come to that.

Diane: You don’t know that, jack. No matter how much you wanna argue, you don’t know how things might have turned out.

Jack: The important thing is it worked, and I am here now, safe and– and alive, and nikki is in rehab.

Diane: You know, I just– I just feel like there’s a hole in this story. What– what exactly happened that triggered nikki’s wake-up call?

Jack: I passed out.

Diane: What?

Jack: Nikki saw me lying there unconscious, and it shook her to her core. It literally scared her sober. She’s the one that called the emt’S.

Diane: You passed out? Oh, my god, jack. You did overdose. You really could’ve died, and you’re standing there telling me that you had it under control?

Jack: I did have it under control.

Diane: Oh, did you know that you were gonna pass out? Did you know that you were gonna need medical help? Was that part of your stupid plan?

Jack: I may have made a small miscalculation.

Diane: Oh, my god. Last night, alone with a drunk woman, you lost consciousness.

Jack: I have been there before.

Diane: Yeah, and now you’ve got that poison in your system all over again. You have to fight those urges all over again. Do you realize what you’ve done? You have thrown away years of sobriety for nikki newman.

Jack: My sobriety is not at risk. I promise you, that will not happen.

Diane: And how can you be so sure, huh? How do I know you don’t have pills on you right now?

Jordan: Victor. Please. Tell me what I have to do to get out of here. I’ll do anything. Anything, please. I can’t take it any longer. Please.

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Kyle: Okay, don’t get me wrong. I’m not arguing that we are the two most important people in harrison’s life, but you, claire, and our son are family. All newmans. And now you’re suggesting that we keep the two of them apart forever? It’s not realistic, summer.

Summer: Okay, well, I’m not– I’m not going through it again. I’m not. I can’t keep feeling that panic over and over again. That is how I feel every time I see her. You can’t tell me that harrison doesn’t feel some of the same. The fact that I don’t want her near our son should be enough for you to agree with my decision.

Kyle: I still think you’re taking this too far.

Summer: Kyle, we almost lost our son. As far as I’m concerned, I don’t ever need to see claire or hear about her ever again.

Jack: I don’t have any pills. Nikki insisted I give them to her before she left, and I did.

Diane: But you still have that dealer’s number, and apparently you’ve held onto it all this time.

Jack: But you have to believe me. This is a one-time occurrence. I only ingested those pills to shock someone, to– to– out of necessity.

Diane: Necessity? You risked your life to save nikki’S. What about me? Hm? Aren’t I a necessity to you? Didn’t you stop and think about me for one minute?

Jack: You have… you’re right, maybe– maybe I– I was selfish and maybe it was– maybe it was foolish of me to– to risk that chance of going back into that world.

Diane: Maybe, hm.

Jack: I never wanted to go there. You have to know that.

Diane: Think about what you would’ve put me through if you hadn’t survived.

Jack: I never thought it would ever go this far. I would never intentionally put you through that.

Diane: And that’s what scares me the most, jack. You didn’t think.

Jack: I love you. I never wanna risk what we have together. I never wanna lose you, ever.

Diane: I hope that’s true. Because I never wanna lose you, either.

Jack: What we have means the world to me. I did what I had to do. It saved nikki. Can you find some way to just trust the rest of it?

Victor: What makes you think that I would negotiate with you about anything?

Jordan: Do you really wanna keep trudging down here to see me? Someone’s gonna find me, and then we’ll both end up in prison. Me for my– my things, and you– well, you for unlawful imprisonment. So, why don’t we just call it a day, okay? No harm, no foul.

Victor: Good try.

Jordan: So, how much longer are you gonna torture me? What– what do you want from me?

Victor: You have nothing I want. Both harrison and claire are home safe and sound. No thanks to you.

Jordan: Okay, I– I know I– I– I went too far. And I know that I need to be punished for my transgressions, but why– why don’t you… why don’t you just put me in a– a proper prison, okay? Don’t leave me here in this black hole.

Victor: This is it. Get used to it. But… I brought you a present.

Jordan: What am I gonna do with a– a bottle of booze?

Victor: You’re gonna drown yourself in alcohol. That’s what you’re gonna do. The way you wanted my wife to perish. So drink to your heart’s content… until you croak.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Kristina: So I accidentally said “my baby” one time on accident. T-that’s — it’s shorthand for “the thing that’s growing inside oan’t win. Tj thinks I don’t care about this baby enough, and you think that I care about this baby too much. So maybe the two of you should get together and settle on exactly how much you think I should care about this baby, and then you can let me know. Got it. Promise. Point taken. I understand why you’re frustrated. There’s been a lot of back-seat pregnancy-ing here, right? Yeah. I am… I am falling a little bit in love with this baby. But how could I not? It’s a part of me. And it’s not like I did it on purpose. It just happened. And it’s not a bad thing that this baby gets to feel loved before it’s born. Uh, another good point. So I don’t know what everyone is freaking out about. The fact that you don’t understand why everyone is so concerned is cause for concern all by itself. I’m so excited that miranda agreed to be my stylist. I know. Well, it took a little convincing. She didn’t just volunteer. I know, and I appreciate everything you did to make it happen. Well, I feel like you were resisting a lot of her ideas, and she didn’t show us anything that wasn’t amazing. Yeah, but I want her to design my looks for my tour and any public appearances. But when it comes to my downtime, I reserve the right to dress how I want. Honey, you don’t — you don’t have downtime.

[ Chuckles ] Building a brand and maintaining it, that’s a full-time job. So, I think you should talk to the union rep first… okay. …And then the lawyers. Alright. Okay? And, uh, all this is on your to-do list for tomorrow, as in just tomorrow and not the rest of the month? Well, it was going to be a long day. Even though you’re gonna be out of the office, I have a feeling you’re still going to have a long day. Yes. Almost certainly. But at the end of that long day, I will have checked out of the metro court and into my own absolutely perfect apartment. You have managed to be clear-eyed and honest about potential conflicts, and you always do the right thing. Do I, though? I mean, how many times have i erred on the side of being a son versus being a cop? So you think resigning from the force is the only way to reconcile your doubts? I think when I found out that dex was applying to police academy, my first thought should have been, “yeah, this kid, maybe he’ll make a decent cop,” not “I wonder what he’s got on my dad.” See? You just did it. One single, fleeting thought into a rebuke of your whole career. Okay, well, here’s another thing. You had to see the way these guys were treating dex at chase’s bachelor party. It was bad. I mean, dex was just on sonny’s payroll. I’m his blood. There’s no comparison between the two of you. You were a cop way before you found out that sonny was your father. Dex knew exactly who sonny was when he chose to work for him. Look, cops care about proximity to people like sonny. I’m his son. You don’t get any closer than that. I can’t even imagine what they all must think about me. I can imagine, because I was there when every single one of them showed up to donate blood when you were in the hospital. Y– you don’t do that for someone you don’t respect. Yeah, cops do that for other cops. You always do that. Carly shows up here like it’s her home, and then she tells me I can’t see my own daughter in my own home. Did something happen with donna? Of course not, but she wasn’t talking to me like I was donna’s father. She was talking down to me… like I’m not taking my medication. And then to top it off, she charges in the bathroom, goes into the drawer to check herself, like she’s still living here. I — I got to tell you, anybody else did that… well, it doesn’t — …you know what I would do? It doesn’t sound like she’s showing much respect… no! …For your privacy. She’s not showing much respect. To hell with that… and to hell with you, carly corinthos! Don’t you mean carly spencer?


Really, ava? That’s what you got out of everything I just said? It was a slip of the tongue, okay? That’s it. It just shows, though, how hard carly tries to push your buttons. She fails, of course — you’re you. But she does try. I have a lot of experience with carly. She plays a lot of games, but you know what? I play those games better. It’s staggering how entitled she is. She hasn’t been your wife in years. You’d never know that from the way she acted today. And not just a wife. A doctor, too, apparently. Well, you know what? To be fair… nobody knows my condition and whether I’m off medication… more than carly. Except you, obviously. Obviously. But you know what? You know what really gets me upset… is when she came in and started saying that I’m not remembering to take my medication, did I take my medication. I mean, what am I? A child? What is she thinking?! She’s not thinking, sonny. You have changed… but the way carly sees you hasn’T. She — she doesn’t know you anymore. You don’t have to tell me. You have put up with more than enough today. Why don’t you sit down, okay, and — and relax? What I want to do is I want to go to the hospital and get my blood drawn so they can test… the medication levels. And I can throw my results… …in carly’s face. Every time you walk out that door, I worry. But I also know how much you love your work. Not anymore. That was before I knew i was subconsciously looking the other way for my father. Now that I know that I’m doing that, I got to stop. Are you, like, messing with me or just venting? No, I’m not messing with you. I’m not venting. I…I really mean this. I can’t tell you how long I have waited… for you to say that you were ready to give up your badge. Had enough of hotel living, huh? Oh, more than enough. Living in hotels was a necessary evil for a better part of my career. You know, they were assignments, so it just didn’t make sense to — to rent any kind of long-term residences, because you had to be up and out within a moment’s notice. But then, living in hotels just became less of a convenience and more of a habit, so… it’s a habit that I’ve decided to break. I need a space of my own. Take… uh, with respect, it sounds a little like you’re trying to talk yourself into it. Okay, well, let’s just say that I’m reinforcing my decision. I’ve needed to do this for a while. Yeah. But then a perfect apartment came up. It’s fully furnished, and it’s in an ideal location, and I signed the paperwork yesterday. Congratulations. Thank you, calvin. Yeah. Yeah. I have everything I need all planned and accounted for in my itinerary at over 0800 hours tomorrow. That looks about right. I’ve got bungee cords and a hand-truck ready to take the files from storage I kept there since the fire at my old house. I’m just grateful that god invented elevators. You’re not using professional movers? Unless you can’t because there’s sensitive stuff in those files. Gotcha. Yeah. I’ve learned the hard way how valuable old records are. Can’t trust them to anyone except me. Do you remember how upset molly was when the first surrogate miscarried? She was devastated, and I will never forget seeing her face at the park that day. It broke my heart. All I wanted to do was help her. She’s my sister. It was her dream to have a baby, and I just wanted to help make that dream a reality, no matter what it took. And I love you for that, and so does molly. Yeah. She does, when she and her partner aren’t questioning my every move. Honey, I’m sure they regret that you felt scrutinized. I really do. But we are family, and we are really imperfect, but we love each other, which is why we have to give each other a lot of slack. You mean me.

I have to give them slack. That’s what you mean. N-no. Yeah, it is. Let me ask you something, mom. If molly and tj were using any surrogate other than me, do you think they would be policing her like they are me if she occasionally accidentally let a “my baby” slip every once in a while? Hey, has your music manager — has she said anything about the studio band’s demo? I mean, this is for your new single, so she must have some kind of feedback, right? Okay. She’s totally incommunicado until after the wedding? Why do you have such an attitude when it comes to brook lynn? I don’t have an attitude, but I do have questions about her priorities thus far. There’s nothing wrong with someone being more excited about marriage than you were. The guitar solo in the new single, it’s terrible. I don’t know what you were doing with all that studio time, but it clearly wasn’t your job. Excuse me? No, the guitar, you should have shut it down. Shut down the whole session as soon as you heard it. That single cannot be released like that until it’s fixed. What? I was the only one who heard it? Or was I just the only one who was listening? We’ll go back in and redo it. What other choice do we have? Look, we’re not going to continue to pretend like this current guitarist is anything better than just barely mediocre. This — this single is far too important. You’re kidding. It’s too important to use anybody other than… your brother. I knew this was where you were going. For the last time, mami, you have to let eloi live his own life and let me live mine.


Eloi is a talented musician. He’s a born performer, just like you. And he left the music business and said he wants nothing more to do with it. Any idea why? Yeah, because it’s contrary.

[ Scoffs ] He…he just doesn’t admit to himself that that’s where his heart lies. But once he does… he’ll what? Come running back, ready to jump in the studio and make up for lost time? Well, yeah. You joke, but I know my son. I know that music is — is the air he breathes. And once I remind him of that… how many times? And you wonder why eloi wants out. Well, what about you, honey? Do you want out too? No. I want to understand why I’m not enough. Ma, I chose to have a career in music, but it doesn’t matter because eloi is not involved — or headlining, which is what you really want. You’re being ridiculous because you know I love you both equally. I just hate seeing talent like that go to waste. Yeah, well, his talent, his choice. Yeah, but, as usual when the subject of eloi comes up, I’m wasting my breath. Honey. I got to go. Allie’s waiting for me at my place. Okay. Well, give her my best. I will. You know, you are so generous… and everybody knows it. And I want you to know that molly and tj are just anxious. You know, after everything they’ve been through… they’re just worried that this is gonna get snatched away from them just like everything else before. But you know who’s not worried? Hm? Babies. Most of the time, they come in happy and healthy… and this baby will, too. And you will know that you brought this life into the world without any agenda at all, but love. And that’s really cool. Thank you. You’re welcome. Love you. I love you. I can’t tell you how many nights… I laid in bed and prayed… …that you would come home and tell me you were done. We should have talked about this, like — like a long time ago. I know. You should have seen the looks of the faces of all the officers and their husbands and their wives, ’cause they were all there. I mean, they were devastated, of course. But I could tell that they felt guilty… …and relieved… because fate had made its choice that night, and it wasn’t them. Yeah, cops are… pretty superstitious. I know.

[ Chuckles softly, sniffles ] I live with one. And I love this one. So if you were to tell me that you were ready to give up your badge, I wouldn’t pretend to be anything… but grateful. If you think it’s worth the trouble of having a blood test to reassure carly, then… I think you should do it. Why waste my time when the results come back? You know, they’re going to be normal. She’s just going to judge me on something else.

[ Chuckles ] Very likely. And it’s probably a bad precedent to set, letting carly think that you need her approval on how you maintain your medication, that you need her approval about anything, for that matter. I don’t need carly’s approval. She doesn’t care about me. She’s probably with jason right now. I tell you what, if it wasn’t for donna I wouldn’t speak to her again. You know what? I — I got to cool off. I got to go. W-why don’t I come with you, okay? No. No. I need some time alone.


Oh, my. Well, I hope you’ve had better luck than I’ve had. The only thing I found in this book was a recipe for graham cracker crust that somebody shoved in here. I’ve never been partial to a graham cracker crust. All these books, there isn’t one case where the court has vacated a disbarment, not since my disbarment, anyway. Well, I managed to dig up some transcripts, some declarative judgments that can at least point us in the direction of what not to argue. I guess that’s better than finding out the hard way. So far, it’s just been the only way. Look, we knew this case was probably doomed from the onset. We knew no such thing, and we still don’T. Look, if you just want to give up, well, then, by all means, go find your kitchen, wherever it is, and make that hideous graham cracker crust recipe. I know where my kitchen is. It’s where I keep the aspirin.

[ Chuckles ] And I have been working on this night and day, this don quixote of a case, and you know what? I may have a legal crisis under my own roof. And if this one explodes, it’s going to shred my entire family. Hi. What do you think? Oh, I — I like it. I do. It’s a bit much, though, for movie night and takeout, but whatever you’re comfortable in. What I do really like, though, is that you finally used the key I gave you. It seemed safer coming here than the alternative. Which was? Strangling my mom in the park in broad daylight. Oh, although, anyone who’s ever met her might buy my insanity defense. I know the feeling. No one really makes you as nuts as your own mother, right? Oh!

[ Chuckles ] No, I didn’T…

[ Laughs ] I didn’t mean to scare you. I mean, you and your bags are safe. I don’t think there’s anything in your bags that would fit me anyway. Uh, no. I — and you don’t need help with your clothes, either. I’ve only seen you a few times, but… you approve? I do. Thank you. And you — you did me a favor ’cause I was just sitting here, you know, stuck in my thoughts, letting time slip away from me. It’s nice of you to give me a pass, but it’s not polite to sneak up on people. You made up for it. Appreciate that. It is such a beautiful day. I’m feeling a little selfish hogging up this bench. Care to join me? Yeah, yeah, I’d like that very much.

[ Knocking ] Yeah? Oh, hi. What are you doing here? I thought you were off duty. Yeah, I am. I just wanted to drop something off. Well, come in. Come in. Sit down. It’s nice to see you. Submitting a report? Uh, no. This is, uh… this is my resignation.


What’s prompted this? You were just in hospital. You were shot. I mean, it’s understandable that you might… yeah, it’s not just the fact that I was shot and almost died. Although that…played a part in it for me and for sam, but not the biggest part. Well, what? What is it? Uh, sonny stopped by my place today, and… yeah, we, you know, got to talking about father/son stuff, and then he mentioned dex heller. In what context? In the context that other cops… maybe even you, will believe what dex has to say about sonny’s business, uh, but not me. Not me, ’cause I would… I would know better. What did you take that to mean?

[ Chuckles ] I took it to mean that he doesn’t think that we should believe anything that dex is gonna say about his business. Did sonny ask you to do anything else other than not believe whatever dex might say? No, not immediately, but it’s not going to be the end of it. For sonny, he’s going to come back and then he’s going to ask what dex said. Assuming you would have access to whatever dex disclosed, if sonny asked… would you tell him? Not a chance. But sonny laying this groundwork like this is… I don’t know. It’s just… this line has — has gotten really blurry, you know, between what I do as a cop and what I do as a son. And… you know, I was trying to build this wall between… certain parts of our lives, you know, and sonny was on one side and I was on the other side and we could coexist. Yeah, I mean, that’s seemed to have been working in the past. Yeah, but, you know, then what you said at chase’s bachelor party really kind of hit home for me, and, uh… I have thought about what dax working for the pcpd could mean for my father… information that he could pass on, and I — I… I hate that that thought crossed my mind. You’re being really hard on yourself. I mean, aside from your remarkable recovery just now, you’re only human. Yeah, but I’m a cop. Yeah, you’re a damn fine one, too. And worrying about something isn’t the same as intervening or interfering or sharing intel. No. But to me, it sure feels like a betrayal of everything that this badge stands for. So… it’s got to end. Tonight. Sonny: Can I ask you what has you stuck in your own thoughts? Yeah. It’s my daughter. I have more than one, so I’m stuck in my thoughts a lot.

[ Both chuckle ] Man, I just have one, and that one’s a full-time job. And a thankless one a lot of times. I know what that’s about. You didn’t have an argument with kristina, did you? No, I get along great with kristina. I can’t say the same about my ex. Ugh. Nothing worse than a fight with your ex because you loved each other once, so they know what will hurt you and exactly where to aim it. My ex and i share the same daughter that I was talking about earlier. My daughter’s young, so she still likes me.

[ Chuckles ] Enjoy that while you can. But the other thing is that, uh… I’m bipolar… so my ex was instrumental in getting me… …diagnosed and recovery. Okay, so she’S… she’s not all bad. Well, that — that was then. Now, she’S… using it against me. Molly and tj have been nudging kristina about what she eats, where she sleeps, how worked up she gets. Well, surrogacy can be challenging for everyone involved, even when everyone’s being respectful and well behaved. But all molly and tj have to do is watch it and wait, and they are both very bad at it. On the other hand, for the most part, kristina is doing everything a pregnant woman should do. Uh-huh. What’s the other, lesser part been up to? Thinking that the baby is hers. Well, I’ve had some experience with surrogacy just from the legal side… and I know that whoever is carrying the child experiences a wide assortment of emotions, not the least of which is possessiveness. Yeah. Otherwise, she might as well be an incubator or test tube. But what kristina is feeling is different? She said she was… kind of falling a little in love with the baby and that when it kicks, she goes, “that’s my little kicker.” It’s not what she says. It’s — it’s the energy behind it, and it’s problematic for the role that she has. Okay, has anyone — for instance, you — broached the subject with her? Yes. And she got mad. Well, that’s also understandable. It’s understandable for now, but as this evolves, we’ll see what happens because it could be disastrous for my family.

Could be. Doesn’t necessarily need to be. But… kristina did supply the egg. It’s not a third-party donor. Therefore, in the eyes of the state of new york… the baby is legally kristina’S. What do you feel like ordering? Uh…

[ Knocking ] I’ll get it. Thank you. Blaze. Hi. I didn’t know that you were going to be here. I can come back if it’s — no. Please, come on in. We were just actually about to have dinner. You should join us. We’re having a meal of organic kale washed 10 times by nuns, with the side of polyunsaturated yogurt. Sound good? That is exactly why I did something I almost never do. Just walked out of the office in the middle of the afternoon. I had to see you. I hate the way we left things this morning.


I wanted to tell you that I talked to tj. Really? Yes. Really. I told him that micromanaging every aspect of your life is out of line and it has to stop. You said that to him? I did. I mean, telling you what to eat, when to sleep, it’s not okay. I’m a total control freak, and even I would hate that. Thank you. You’re welcome. I mean, you’re my sister, not an anonymous egg donor. Love you, and I trust you. Is there any chance you can have some version of this conversation with my mom? Yeah. Sure.

[ Laughs ] Could it wait till tomorrow, though? I took the rest of the afternoon off, and I think I might do something crazy and see if tj can get the afternoon off. Maybe go for a drink, or see a movie. Wow. I know.

[ Laughter ] I appreciate you talking to tj. Just so I’m clear, does this mean I don’t have to disown my dad? It’s really brave of you to be so open about your bipolar disorder. I mean, I don’t really know you, and yet… I really wouldn’t have expected anything less. I appreciate that. I know — I know how important it is to stay on your medication. But now my ex has reached a point where… she doesn’t give me the benefit of the doubt about anything. Did she give you a reason? No. Just, you know… excuses. Those are two very different things. You know, this is a really great bench…

[ Chuckles ] …But it doesn’t really offer any refreshments. None.

[ Laughs ] You want to — you want to go have a drink with me? Yeah, I would be delighted. I think I’m getting the better part of that deal. Eh… yep. I wasn’t there for robin at a very crucial part in her life, and sonny was. Right, she depended on him, and he was there for her. And I think that my gratitude for that morphed into a kind of bias always in his favor, no matter the circumstances, and I don’t think I realized quite how much. But whatever debt I felt I owed your father… I think now is paid in full. And I guess that I was waiting… for you to come to the same conclusion. I don’t know that I’m there yet. So you see why I have to resign? And then what? What do you mean? Well, you know, one day when sonny comes to your door and he needs a favor… without that badge, how do you justify refusing your father? How do you make sure that you and your family don’t just get dragged into his orbit? Well, I’m a grown man, anna. I’ve set boundariesand he respects them. Oh, boundaries. Oh, yeah, no. Come on. After a while, they become blurry, boundaries, especially in families. I mean, you could move. I’m — I’m not moving. My family is rooted here. Their lives are here. So are yours.

Your life is here. You didn’t use this badge to protect sonny. This badge protected you from him and the toxic cloud that follows him around. In short, I don’t think that you can afford to resign.


Well, there he is.

[ Chuckles ] How are you? You s– you seem better. Yeah. Uh, I’m good. Can I get that for you? Thank you. Yeah. Yeah. Just… natalia, that’s ava jerome. She’s my daughter avery’s mother. Yeah. Not the ex you were talking about in the park. No. She’s — she’s here to, like, help out. You don’t have any nannies? I got a couple of them. I’m not one of them.

[ Chuckles ] You know blaze the singer? Yeah. Oh, yes. Kristina’s girlfriend? Yeah. She’s a rising star. And guess what? Natalia is her mother.

[ Chuckles ] Aww. How nice. Congratulations. Yeah, we saw each other in the park, and then we just talking… you know? You know, I think it’s time to crack open that 25-year-old scotch that I imported. Oh, let me get that for you. Yeah, can you pour a glass for natalia? ‘Cause I happen to know that she likes scotch every — every so often.

[ Chuckles ] We will probably never see eye-to-eye on sonny. It’s not personal. It’s just I’m an ada. It’s literally my job not to ignore who he is. And it’s literally my role as his daughter not to ignore him as my father. And I’m not asking you to. But it is public record that where sonny goes, danger follows. Let me ask you something. Do you honestly think that my father poses a threat to your baby? I do not. And I promise that tj will stop making it an issue. Good luck with that. Hey. Thank you so much for being there for my sister throughout all of this. It means a lot that she has someone who cares about her as much as you do. She deserves it. I think so, too. Alright. I’ll see you guys later. Thank you for… coming here and saying what you did. I know it’s not easy after what happened this morning. I appreciate it. It’s just another one of the reasons why I love you. Does kristina at least have a contract with molly and tj? Yes, and I told both the girls that this would never hold up in court. You’re right. It won’T.

[ Exhales sharply ] You know what? I’m probably overreacting. This is probably just hormonal and natural during pregnancy and when this is all said and done, the haze will lift, and she will be thinking clearly. It’s possible. Very unlikely that this will come down to a point of law, and I’m worrying for no reason other than I’m very, very good at it. Oh, honey, when it comes to worrying, you are peerless. However, I would be a sorry excuse for a best friend if I did not give you some advice. Now, on one hand… I’ve never been through anything like this. But on the other hand, not being personally invested gives me some objectivity. And that’s what you need right now, objectivity. Go ahead. I’m braced. Stay out of it. If your daughters want legal opinions, send them to other lawyers. Because… the worst case scenario is you could cause one of your daughters to lose a child, and in the process, you could lose that daughter. I don’t know what the hell I’m supposed to do. Just do what you’ve been doing.

[ Groans ] Look, if you see a file with sonny’s name on it , ignore it. If you’re in the squad room and they mention him, walk away. If something crosses your desk pertaining to your father, then you notify me and I will reassign it. Yeah. Okay, well, then maybe we need to look beyond that… to other situations that might relate to sonny. So if a case, an incident, even a rumor, sounds like it might lead back to your father, then you have to tell me. And if events are moving too fast, you hand it off to chase or bennett or the desk sergeant. Whatever you do, you cannot put yourself in a situation where you will be compromised — or where you will compromise yourself. Is that clear? Alright. I think you’re exactly where you should be. In fact, I think it’s the only safe spot for you. You’re staying, detective. Understood? So, is your whole family in the music industry or just blaze? Well, my whole family is musical, but, I mean, my son, he is an extraordinary musician. He’s amazing, but for right now, it’s just allie — blaze — who’s actively pursuing a career in music, yeah. I know how difficult it is to break into the music business. Excuse me for a second, can you? Sure. Um…do you have to make some calls for the gallery? You know what I mean? Yeah. Yeah. I believe I do. Okay. Well, thank you for turning a challenging day into a very pleasant one. Well, I can say the same to you.

[ Both chuckle ] It’s funny. I’ve walked by this building so many times and admired it, but…this view is more spectacular than I even imagined. Have you been here for a long time? Since the ’90s. Really? Yeah. I don’t believe it. Eh, well… I mean, it feels brand-new. Well, I’ve redecorated a few times since then. You got amazing taste. You think so? Yeah.

[ Both chuckle ] Well, I was thinking of making a change. So, like, I’d welcome your input. I mean, I think it needs a — a woman’s touch. Mm. What about ava? Oh, ava? It’s not like that with ava and me.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Hey. Hey, you. Mind if I join you? Not at all.

So, what are you working on? Oh, an exposé on the unfortunate exploits of Mayor Paulina Price. Unfortunate exploits. Uh, you mean during the Smith Island snowstorm? Exactly what I mean. Take a look.

There we were. The three of us waiting for Chanel’s blood test results. Chanel, Johnny, and I. And then Kayla comes in and tells us that Chanel is pregnant. Oh my god. If something happens to that precious baby, I’ll never forgive myself. Paulina, please. Please don’t be so hard on yourself. How can I not be hard on myself?

Oh, Abe, I made a stupid, impulsive decision to try and save my daughter and now what I did, it could have tragic consequences. Oh, Ava, Ava, Ava. Your heart, your heart’s in the right place. And now my heart is just broken. Oh. Well, not only for what Chanel is going through, but what she and Johnny, they’re both going through.

Oh, hey, what have I done? What have I done? Oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh.

Hey, little guy. What’s going on? Trying to keep me up all night. Hey. Well, uh, maybe he needs his pacifier if he still uses one. Uh, yeah. Let me see if it’s right here. Oh, no. Oh, okay. Well, maybe one of his toys here. Hey, Nicole. Hi, Johnny, Chanel. But, uh, you two were out late, huh? Yeah. Oh boy, is everything okay?

Yeah, uh, we just, um, it’s been a long day and we’re just exhausted. Uh, goodnight. Cool. Good night.

I’m being serious. I dare you not to touch a fry until we make it home. Oh, man. Oh, that’s a tough one. Who am I not to take a dare? Although, shouldn’t this go both ways? Hmm? Yeah, I guess it should. Okay, so whoever caves first and eats a fry will have to let the other one Make the decorating choice tonight.

Oh, okay. Okay. Okay, you’re on. Alright. Yeah.

There it is. Hello. Looks like you’re heading somewhere fun. Uh, yeah, we’re actually heading home. Home? Don’t you live here? Not anymore. I just moved in with Rafe. Ah, well, congratulations. Thank you. Thank you. You’re welcome. Yeah. So, how’s your little boy? Ah, he’s great. Yeah? Yeah. Good, good. And Sloan? Uh, busy.

Yeah. Um, you know what? I gotta get going, so y’all have fun.

Okay. What the hell does that mean, Sloan Hoffright?

It means that Jude is Nicole’s baby. But not yours. Not what? He’s Eric’s. Eric is the biological father. No. No, it’s, it’s, it’s not possible. It can’t be. I hate it as much as you do, EJ, but swear to God it’s the truth. Yeah. And why should I believe a lying kidnapper? What would I have to gain from lying about something like this?

Look, I know this is a shock, okay? But you and I, we want the same thing, right? We both wanna save our marriages, so if you wanna hold on to Nicole and not have our lives blow up, you’ve gotta keep this secret to yourself.

I extends through the hour class. So are the days of our lives.

Sweetheart, you were panicked that Chanel was lost in a blinding snow storm. You did what you needed to do. What I thought I needed to do? To be a hero. Not only to be my daughter’s savior, but to prove to her and the rest of the world that Paulina Price is fearful. Indomitable. She would lay down her life for her child.

But Abe There was also my ego. I thought that if I could save her, I would be perceived as a hero. Like I said, but now all I feel is terrible guilt and regret. Go

on, say it, say it. I told you so. I deserve to hear that. You’re not gonna hear it from me. Come on. Let’s get you to bed. It’s been a long day and there’s nothing we can do about it right now.

I can check in with my baby. Mm hmm. That’s what I can do. I’m calling Chanel so she can hear again how, how sorry I am and just how very much I love her. Oh, that was awkward, huh? No, I’m sure Nicole just thought we were tired, like we said.

Ugh, it’s Mama. Not answering. Is that, is that mean? No. It’s okay. We’ll call her back tomorrow. Yeah. I feel bad. It’s just, I know that she’s hurting right now, but I’m just too tired and too confused to talk to her right now. She’s gonna understand. I can’t even wrap my head around the fact that I’m pregnant.

Yeah. Yeah, I mean, me neither, but, but when I first found out, God, I was so, so excited. You know, just, just picturing us as, as parents. Just knowing that we made a baby together. Just makes me feel so close to you, you know? I feel that way too. So excited after Kayla broke the news to us. Yeah. Before we realized there could be a problem.

I, Johnny, I wasn’t even sure that I was ready to have a baby this soon. And, and I know that you weren’t either. You’re right. I wasn’t. But now that it’s happening, I mean, I, Chanel, I love you so much. And the idea of having a baby with you, it just feels awesome and amazing. And just. Picturing you holding our baby.

What? The fact that there could be problems. It gives us a lot to think about. And we, we do have options, you know?

I must say I am appalled at the depths of your deception. Especially since you know damn well there is a DNA test proving that Nicole’s baby is mine. I have the results in my safe, in fact. I switched the results.

You what? I switched the results for obvious reasons. No. No, no, no, no. You couldn’t have. This is just another one of your sickening lies. How I wish it were. Well, I don’t believe you. So we’ll just have to do another DNA test, won’t we? Great. Go for it. I’ll swab the baby and I’ll give you Eric’s toothbrush.

Wow. You know, I thought you were scum before. Oh, shut up! You know, lashing out at me is gonna get you nowhere, EJ. You know, now that you know the truth, you and I, we’re on the same team. We’re gonna have to work together to avert disaster. Because if Eric and Nicole ever find out that they’re sharing a child, that’s it for us.

Game over. Get it?

Mayor Price claims her actions were justified because she believed her daughter was in danger. Did she refuse to elaborate further? Yeah, Chad called her. She blew him off. It’s not like her to rebuff the press. I know. And it seems like a huge blunder on her part. It seems really obvious that it would be in her best interest to At least try to defend herself.

Tell her side of the story. Maybe we wait a couple hours before we publish. Try to reach out to her again. I, I wish I could do that, but in fairness, she, she’s had ample chance to respond. Are you, is that, are you okay? I used to do PR for Mayor Price, and I happen to like her. She hasn’t used me in a while, but I know, well, I mean, she’s great, and I, I totally understand what you’re saying, but Steph, I can’t hold off on publishing this and allow another paper to scoop us.

Aren’t you gonna run it by Chad first? Well, to be honest with you, it’s my call as the editor in chief. Chad actually started the story and he asked me to finish it, so I feel pretty certain he’ll approve of my decision.

Voicemail? Damn. Well, she’s probably sleeping. Oh, no, Abe. I’m sure my daughter is angry as hell with me right now, and I don’t blame her one bit. Oh, she’s not angry, Paulina. I think that she and Johnny are just trying to process everything. Right. Trying to process that not only is Chanel’s pregnancy at risk, but something may, may go wrong with their baby.

All thanks to me. Oh, Felina, you know, I keep telling you. Don’t make things so hard on yourself. I mean, what’s done is done. And all we can do right now, for Chanel and Johnny, is be there for them. Pray for the best. Yeah. You’re right. Yeah. So right now, why don’t we just table this discussion, get some rest.

Yeah, okay. Yeah, that’s Yeah, that might, that might be best. Oh, that’d be wise. Okay. Um, but you know, first I think I’ll take a hot bath. That usually relaxes me. I love you, Paulina. Well, I’m glad someone does. Cause you know, right now I’m not feeling very lovable.

When you say we have options, I assume you’re talking about. Terminating pregnancy. Chanel, hey, look at me.

I love nothing more than to have a baby with you. Have lots of babies with you. It’s just, because of this radiation issue, it complicates things. Obviously, I mean, we don’t even know what the risks are. Right. And uh, Kayla says that we might not know until after the baby is born. Which complicates things even more.

Oh, Johnny, I love you. I love you so much. And just knowing that I’m carrying our baby, I just Oh, Heather, how I wish we could just be happy. Oh, I wish We could just be happy. DJ?

Honey? Is Is everything okay? One

of my favorite customers, a girl named Felicity. She has Down Syndrome, and she comes in to Sweet Bits every morning. And she watches me knead the dough, make the donuts, the long johns, the eclairs. The eclairs are her favorite. Yeah, yeah. No, I’ve, uh, I’ve seen her in there before. So intently watching you do your thing.

Yeah, intently. Yeah, that’s the word. Yeah, but Johnny, she is just, she’s so sweet. And she says that she wants to be a baker one day and have her own bakery. And so, I’m going to hire her as soon as she’s old enough. And, you know, even though, I don’t know. Our family has probably had to make some sacrifices for her.

I’m sure that that can never outweigh the joy that that sweet girl must bring into their lives. I’m sure it couldn’t.

So,

Even with this radiation scare, And even if Kayla says that there could be something wrong with my life

My feeling right now is So what? Maybe he or she or they might be imperfect But who is it? And I think that as long as They have us to love them and to care for them, and they love us back, then that would still be a blessing. Right? Yeah. Yeah, definitely. Definitely a blessing.

I am already loving this so much. Sharing the space with you. Hey, this is our space, okay? This home, it’s yours now, too. Yes, it is. Yeah. I mean, how lucky are we, huh? To be so happy and so in love. I am so grateful, and I am not taking you for granted. What are you thinking? Just Eric. You know, when we ran into him earlier, he just, I don’t know, he just seemed so unhappy, so down.

Yeah, he did. Yeah. I don’t know, it’s so strange, too, because I know how, like, I know how thrilled he was to be a dad. I don’t know, maybe, maybe he and Sloan are just having, like, marital problems. That’d be my guess. Yeah, she is Seemingly an extremely difficult woman. To put it mildly. Yeah, well. I just hope everything works out with him.

Hey.

Hey, Vic. Hi. Did you talk to Leo?

Yeah. He was wasted. He could barely stand up, let alone have a conversation. So he didn’t I don’t know. Do you have anything to say about your accusation? Um, well, I kind of responded by passing out. You know, by the end of it, I kind of felt sorry for him.

EJ, you You seem rattled. Oh, no, uh, it was It was just a long day at the office. And I had to deal with some, um, Unexpected issues. And I assume you also had a long day since you’re still up and working. Let’s, come on, let’s go to bed, shall we? EJ, wait, wait.

There’s something I need to tell you.

And I I should have told you this before, but um, Remember, you know, when I told you about the article that Chad assigned me about the homeless of Salem? Yes, and I said I was feeling better after you told me that you wouldn’t be walking the streets alone, that you’d have your photographer with you. Yeah.

Um, but what I didn’t say was that Was that photographer is, uh, Is Eric.

Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

Hello? Stephanie, it’s Abe Carver. Have you seen the Spectator article on Paulina? Yes, I just read it. I tried to call Paulina and warn her, but, um, it went straight to voicemail. Yeah, well, what were we going to do about damage control? At this point, not much. It’s already out there. It would help if Paulina did release a statement explaining why she did what she did.

And where is Paulina? Why isn’t she calling me about this? She’s, she’s taking a bath right now. She hasn’t seen the article. Stephanie. Do you think this scandal is going to hurt her political career? Abe, I hope not, but time will tell.

Chanel, you have the biggest heart of anyone that I have ever known. It’s one of the many reasons that I fell in love with you. And I agree with you. 100%. I think that any new life is a blessing. And I think you and I are totally going to nail this parenting thing. Yeah, well speak for yourself, okay? I happen to be a very immature and self centered and not great mom material.

What? I patently disagree with that. I just got finished telling you what a great big heart you have. Remember that? Mm hmm. Okay, and as far as being irresponsible and immature, Chanel, you own your own successful business. Okay, you show up, you wake up every single day without fail at 4 a. m. to go to work.

If anyone’s irresponsible or immature, it is you. Probably me. I mean, my only job title is trust fund baby. I don’t know. Stop. No, you are so mature. And you have a great work ethic. You just, you have to find your calling. That’s all. You have so many talents, Johnny DeMera. Well, thank you. And with this baby coming, maybe it is time for me to find my calling, as you put it.

And grow up fast.

EJ, listen, um,

I will quit this job at the Spectator if that’s what you want. I mean it. No, no, it’s, it’s, it’s fine. I’m not uncomfortable with you and Eric working together as long as you’re okay with it.

I am. And it doesn’t, it doesn’t bother me. And I’m sure I, I will be assigned a different photographer with my next story. It’s just business. And, and I know that I’ve known him forever. And we have a bond of sort. But that relationship is in the past, EJ. You are my present.

And my future. Yeah. Hmm,

that’s interesting. It doesn’t really look like your taste though. I mean, judging by the other artwork in your house. Yeah, uh, right, um, well, it actually is not. It’s Jordan’s, and uh, I think she got it at an art fair or something. Oh. And she didn’t think to take it with her when you broke up? She wanted me to have it.

Okay. Well, how about you have it in the closet now? Okay? Okay. How about me? Better?

Oh, yeah. Definitely. You know, now that I think about it, you haven’t really told me much about Jordan or your relationship with her. Well, all you need to know is that she was Clyde Weston’s daughter. And she’s certifiably insane. So then I can guess that it didn’t end well for you guys. No, no, it uh, in fact it did not end well at all.

Well, we sure knew how to pick them. Yeah, we did. But the good news is, we have improved immensely in that regard.

Um, so I’m just, I’m just walking this through, but, since you work for the Spectator, is there a conflict of interest issue at all if you take on Paulina as a, as a client again? Are you telling me I have to choose? Between the two, work for Paulina or quit working for you. Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah.

I’m not saying that at all. The last thing I want in the world. It’s for you to leave the spectator. I’m just, uh, I’m flagging it. Well, I appreciate your concern, Everett, but I’m a professional. I can assure you that I won’t cross any boundaries. Of course you won’t. You are the utmost professional. I’m sorry if I, if I put you on the defensive.

I think, uh, I think we’ve been talking too much about, like, work related stuff, right? Yeah, yeah. There has been a lot of that lately. I know. It’s exhausting, isn’t it?

I was thinking How would you feel about doing something Just you and me, um, not work related, maybe fun related. Fun related? Too soon, it’s too soon. I guess it depends on what kind of fun you’re talking about. Yeah, um, look, I know we need to take this slow, if there even is a this. I don’t blame you at all for being cautious with me, for being guarded.

Okay, I don’t want to pressure you at all, in any way. I know that. I mean, it’s been really, really confusing for me. Everything that’s happened.

I guess I’m just, I guess I’m just feeling a bit self protective right now. That’s what you should be. I totally get that. And just so you know, when we do this fun related thing, whatever it is, um, It can be whatever you want it to be. We can be friends, or It can be something more. If you’re not ready, I totally understand.

Yeah. Okay. That sounds fine. Yeah? Mm hmm. And, uh, I am partial to fun, so You are partial to fun. Huh. So what did you have in mind? Well, I was thinking, um, you know, we used to play pickleball in Seattle? Mm hmm. What do you think of that? Mm hmm. Yeah, no, that was, that was really fun. Especially for me, because I usually, uh, kicked your butt.

Oh, wow. Okay. Little bit of an overstatement. Little bit of an overstatement. I, I won that one match, I’m pretty sure. There was that one. Do you want to give this another go? Sure. Let’s do it. Okay. So, there are actually, um, ports on the other side of the park. So Check our calendars? Yeah. Oh,

wow. Oh. You know those, uh, essential bath oils Marlena gave me. Oh, that really did the trick. Oh, and at least now I feel, uh, ooh, somewhat relaxed. Ah, and you know, I thought about what you said, Abe, and, you know, you’re right, you know, it was probably just a sleep, you know, when I got her voicemail, so I will not read any more into that than that, you know, when she didn’t take my calls.

Oh, and I just, you know, I need to stay positive in general, and just have faith that everything will be all right, and, oh, you know. Well, if it turns out otherwise, we’ll just deal with it because we’re tough. We’re resilient. For all we, we all love each other. We all love each other with our respective hearts.

Hey, Abraham. What’s wrong? I hate

to be the one to show you this. A radioactive mayor?

I’m sorry, baby, for calling so late, but I feel just terrible now, sweetheart. I love you so much, and I hate that I’ve caused you to be sad, put your pregnancy in any kind of jeopardy. It’s killing me. In fact, please forgive me. Please call me back.

Mama sounds upset. Yeah, she does. She does. I just, it’s, it’s complicated because I, I love my mom and I hate that she’s so miserable right now, but also I just, I can’t deal with the drama tonight. You think she’ll understand? Yes. Yes, I’m sure she will. And hey, you need to start thinking about yourself, okay?

And This little baby of ours. And I’m here for whatever you need. And, although I hope, and I pray, that we receive reassuring news from the doctor.

Even if we don’t, then we are going to handle that. Together.

Yes. Yes, we will. Okay.

Sloane, I, I hate what Leo did to you. And what I don’t like is that you didn’t come to me about it.

I’m sorry, Eric. It was wrong. It was. No more secrets, alright?

No more secrets. Ever. Promise. Where’s Holly? Did she go to bed already? She did. She had a little bit of a rough night. Just overwhelmed with all the schoolwork she has to catch up on. Oh, I’m sorry that she’s struggling with that. I know. But I think it’s important that she not overdo it. Not put too much pressure on herself.

And I think it’s just as important, by the way, that Holly’s mother not overdo it. You are a working woman now, so I hope you’ll heed that advice, young lady. Uh, excuse me, look who’s talking. Okay, okay. Uh, how about we both not? Overdo it. So, maybe we should think about a vacation. Oh, that sounds like a lovely idea.

But maybe we should wait, since I just started a new job. And we should probably wait for Holly to get out of school. But, you know We’re the only ones here, cause everyone went to bed. So. Yes. Ow! Oh, I’m so sorry, I think you had a horse in my watch. I’m sorry. You

know, I am so happy to finally have these out of stores where I can see them every day. They look great. They do. They do, right? Yeah. You know, when I lived above the pub in my little room, I hardly had any wall space to hang anything. You know, all I could hang was like little pictures with frames. But now, it’s really starting to feel like home.

Yeah. This is my phone. Oh my God. My divorce papers.

It’s over, Rafe. It’s, it’s, it’s finally over! Oh my gosh! It’s great news! Amazing news! Oh my God. By the way, since I knew it was going to happen, I got you your favorite champagne to celebrate. Oh my gosh, that’s so thoughtful of you! I already chilled it. Oh! Hiding it over here. Okay. Yeah. Ah, excuse me. Voila.

Aww.

Okay. Wow. To

us. To our beautiful future. And to our great good fortune in finding each other. Here, here. You know, it’s kind of ironic that I’m celebrating my divorce more than I even celebrated my marriage to Bobby. I mean, I fell for him hard. I did. I mean, but then really quickly, he just turned really cold and very distant.

I don’t know. It was just like someone like flipped a switch. But now I’m so incredibly relieved. That I do not have to worry about him. I am finally free. I am free from him. Mentally and legally. Yes. And I I’m incredibly relieved.

Because I love you. And I love you. You are my one and only.

Okay, you ready to hear my pickleball availability? Um, can we figure it out later? I have a deadline for another story. Oh, okay. Yeah, just um, call me when you have your schedule figured out then. I will. See you later.

Is everything alright? Fine. But if I don’t get ready, I’ll become very grouchy. Oh, yeah. Well, I definitely want to avoid grouchy you, so, uh, I’m out of here.

Hey there. Hi. Drinking alone? I’m just having a beer after work. You and me both. Mind if I join you?

Sure, have a seat.

My name’s Bobby. Alana.

Well, I just spoke with Stephanie and she’s going to help us come up with a statement. To explain your actions. But, Abe, this article, it’s just, it’s just telling it like it was. I mean, like it is. Clearly I was in the wrong. Irresponsible. Reckless. And it’s way past time that I face the music.

So? We have a lot to think about. A lot to be happy about. To be worried about. Yeah, that too. But, we are going to face those worries. With strength. Hm? And with love. Right.

But for now, I think we should just close out the rest of the world. At least for tonight. Yeah. Yeah? Yeah, let’s do that. Okay.

I am so grateful for you, Johnny.

I’m so grateful for you, my love.

You know what, EJ, I, I think that maybe we’ve been taking each other for granted lately. I never take you for granted. You know what I mean, okay? Listen, Look, we do talk a lot to each other, and we have meals together, and we watch TV together, and we discuss our kids, and how certain people drive us nuts together.

Oh, yes.

But what we haven’t nearly been doing enough of It’s pretty warm going. Mm hmm. Yeah. Watch your step. So we’re good now? No more secrets, right? Yeah. For sure. Open and honest.

Open and honest about everything. Right? Yeah. About everything.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Finn: I mean, I just– I still can’t believe it that you’re here and that you’re with us. I mean, I thought– I thought I lost you and that we would never see you again.

Sheila: Yeah, well, I– I am right here and I’m not going anywhere. And I never want to be apart from either of you ever again.

Deacon: You think I’d let you? You’re stuck with me.

Finn: Stuck with us. We’ve been through a lot. But deep down, I always… I always thought that if we just had the time– the time to fix things and to– to heal, and that if you did the work that one day, you know, maybe we could build a relationship. But then when I thought you died, it just… I just don’t want to be apart from you either.

Hope: Wow, this is all great feedback. Thank you. I have to admit, I was a little nervous about this meeting. I thought you might be pulling back on our budget given that thomas has stepped down as our lead designer.

Carter: Topic came up.

Ridge: It did. Because hope for the future has gone through a bit of a transition. And we’re all aware of that. All aware that you’ve surrounded yourself with really good people. It’s a good group. Zende and rj, I mean, they… they’ve come up with some really cool stuff already and they’re only going to get better. Luna’s going to pick up the slack. We’re going to be okay.

Hope: Thank you for that vote of confidence. And I will be sure to stay on top of them. You know, make sure that the communication and creativity keep on flowing.

Steffy: Sorry, sorry. I’m– I’m late. Sorry.

Ridge: Steffy, you all right?

Steffy: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Um…

Ridge: What’s going on?

Steffy: Let’s get to work. No, nothing. It’s nothing, dad.

Ridge: Steffy. I just want this nightmare to be over. Deacon keeps going on and on about sheila being alive and it needs to end.

Carter: It’s tough to move on when deacon won’t stop bringing sheila back into your lives.

Ridge: He just doesn’t know when to quit, does he?

Hope: All right, well, I apologize for my father once again. I will go speak to him. And I will do that right now.

Steffy: Well, tell him to stay away from finn because we’re done with everything and anything that has to do with sheila.

Sheila: You… you never gave up on me even when everyone said you were crazy for thinking I was alive.

Deacon: I couldn’T. I know you. I know your heart. It never made sense that you went after steffy. Then, I saw the ten toes.

Sheila: No, you only saw them because you wanted to stay with me to the very end.

Deacon: I wasn’t ready to let you go. I wasn’t the only one. You know, I was going off about how you were still alive and sugar was killed and, you know, finn, he had every reason to write me off, but he didn’T. Just the possibility of you being alive was enough for him to help me find you.

Sheila: My hero.

Finn: Well, you too. You tried to save steffy and the kids from sugar. You tried to protect my family.

Sheila: Of course I did because they’re my family too.

Deacon: It’s like I’ve been saying. Yeah, sheila’s done some terrible things, but there is good in her heart. Her love for you and your family, it’s real. You have to see the power of redemption and rehabilitation. And I know you said that you believed that sheila tried to save your family, but finn, it’s not enough just to believe her. You have to believe in her.

Finn: Well, I do. I believe in you.

I have type 2 diabetes, but I manage it well

Ridge: You know, sharpe’s always been a desperate, selfish little man, but now he’s really lost it.

Carter: I’m really sorry you and finn are going through this, steffy. After everything sheila’s put you through, I was hoping this would be a season of peace for you two.

Steffy: You and I both. Sheila really rocked our marriage, and I wasn’t sure we’d ever be the same again.

Ridge: All right, but you’re working through it. You’re gonna get past that terrible night. You’re doing it.

Steffy: Yeah, but deacon’s gotten to finn’s head, really manipulating his emotions.

Carter: Yeah, but maybe hope can get through to him. If anyone can, it’s her, right?

Ridge: All right, don’t read into it. He’s probably just busy.

Steffy: I’m just, I’m getting a real weird vibe.

Charlie: Hi. Sorry, am I interrupting?

Ridge: Hey, charlie. Remember when we talked about, like, western civilization, that there’s a closed door and what it means? Remember how you’re supposed to knock? We talked about this. Try again.

Carter: So, you’re getting a vibe?

Steffy: Yeah, I am. It’s just, it feels so odd and–

Ridge: Hang on. Here it comes.

[ Knocking on door ] Hey, charlie.

Charlie: You have a minute?

Ridge: Yeah, come on in.

Charlie: Well, it seems like we have a showdown. And not the fashion kind. It seems that ms. Lucas the head of accounting, is parking over the line into mr. Scott’s slot, who’s the head of sales. And it’s about to get ugly out there.

Ridge: Okay, why are you telling me this? Just go fix it.

Charlie: Well, normally I would, sir, but, you know, as you realize, a man in my position can be quite intimidating. I thought you might want to de-escalate first. Besides, uh, ms. Lucas scares me.

Ridge: Well, that does sound like a very delicate situation. I’ll put my best man on it. My coo.

Carter: What?

Ridge: Go fix it. Yeah.

[ Carter sighs ]

Carter: Let’s go, charlie. Let’s go attend to this very important piece of business.

Charlie: Thank you, carter. I think you realize just how threatening a man like me can be.

Carter: I can tell by your little biceps.

Charlie: See?

Ridge: Hey. Whatever this vibe is that you’re feeling, it’s going to be okay. You and finn are going to work through it. And hope’s going to talk to deacon and he’s going to stop talking about sheila. You’re not going to hear about her ever again.

Finn: This is, um, this is all still setting in. And you being here and us getting a second chance.

Sheila: But you do believe it, right? That I– I really have changed.

Finn: Oh, yes, I do. You offered your life to protect my family, to try and save steffy from sugar.

Sheila: Regardless if steffy hates me or not, she’s still my family. You all are. It must have been devastating. Her thinking that she– she killed me, your mother. I– I’m sure that’s caused some tension in your marriage.

Finn: It did, yeah. Um… you were dead and it felt like steffy was slipping between my fingers.

Sheila: No. Honey, I would never want that because you deserve to be happy.

Finn: Well, I am now, knowing that you’re alive and that steffy didn’t kill you. It’s just, it’s unbelievable.

Deacon: You got that right. Imagine the shockwaves it’s going to send through los angeles and genoa city when people find out that sheila and her nine toes are still tapping.

Hope: Dad? Are you home? It’s me.

Deacon: Just a second. No, no, no. She’s going to find out eventually. There’s no reason to hide, okay?

Sheila: Are you sure?

Deacon: Yeah. I just got you back. I’m not going to pretend you’re not here.

Hope: Dad, what’s taking so long?

Deacon: I’m coming. Honey–

Hope: Dad, I know you’re grieving and I want to be here to help you, but you can’t keep going around town telling people that sheila– sheila is… sheila…

Deacon: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Auntie, you can’t put that right in the dishwasher.

Ridge: You know, when you were a little girl, you hit your head or skin your knee, you know, all I had to do was give you a hug, give you a kiss. Make everything better. But this, this woman, she almost killed you twice. And now she’s gone, but she’s still here in our lives. I don’t know what to do.

Steffy: Finn and I, we can– we can handle it. When life gets tough, we just, we fight. I’m just tired of fighting.

Ridge: Well, you know you don’t have to do it alone, right? I’m here for you. So is brooke and so is hope.

Steffy: Oh, dad, come on.

Ridge: She feels badly about what you– this whole thing with sheila and what deacon is doing, she feels badly about it.

Steffy: Think about all the terrible things sheila has done to our family. Even brooke, her own mother.

Ridge: She hasn’t forgotten about that, I’m sure.

Steffy: Okay, but she does have a soft spot for deacon, her father. She went to the memorial and I really don’t think that hope has the guts to tell her father stop with this ridiculous theory.

Ridge: Or maybe she’s the only one that can help us with that. They have a strange relationship, yes, but maybe she’s the one who can convince him that– that what he’s thinking about is not real.

Steffy: I– I honestly, I don’t care if hope changes deacon’s mind about sheila. I mean, he could stay in his house, and he could count toes over and over again. Hope just needs to convince deacon to stay away from finn.

Finn: Easy, easy. Elevate her leg. Uh, hope? Hey, hope. Hope.

Deacon: I got you.

Finn: Hey, hope. Hope, it’s finn. Your dad’s here.

Deacon: I’m right here, sweetheart.

Finn: Hope? Hope? Hey. Hey, hey. You fainted. It’s finn, it’s your dad.

Deacon: Sweetheart, I’m here.

Hope: Mm.

Deacon: Okay.

[ Hope groans ]

Finn: Whoa, easy.

Deacon: Sweetheart, sweetheart, look at me. Hope, hope, look at me. You’re not, you’re not seeing things.

Hope: No, no, sheila was stabbed.

Finn: Okay, just, let’s take some deep breaths, okay? Just easy here, in and out. Listen to me.

Hope: Sheila?

Deacon: What you’re seeing is real.

Finn: It’s true.

Hope: No, no, sheila was dead.

Finn: No.

Deacon: No.

Finn: Your dad was right all along. Everything that he’s been saying is true. Sheila’s alive.

Sheila: It’s really good– good to see you, hope. You look like you’ve seen a ghost, but I am– I’m– I’m not a ghost. It’s really me here in the flesh. I’m not dead. My mental health was better.

Steffy: Got anything stronger?

Ridge: Just get out of here. You wanna do that, go to malibu, take your mind off things?

Steffy: No, I’ve already let sheila and this ridiculous situation take up way too much of my day. I need to work.

Ridge: I wish I could fix this for you.

Steffy: I love you, dad, but I can take care of myself.

Ridge: I know you can take care of yourself, I know that. You’ve always done that, but this is– this is too much. What you’ve been through, you’re still going through it.

Steffy: I took a life, dad. Even if it was a life not worth living.

Ridge: It wasn’t worth living. That woman, that awful woman, everything she touched has turned to misery.

Steffy: Yeah.

Ridge: The only good thing she’d ever done was, I don’t know, I guess give birth to finn.

Steffy: Oh, god. I can’t believe that monster gave birth to finn. I mean, finn is just such a good guy. So genuine and… god, he didn’t deserve any of this.

Ridge: No. But he’s got li now, right? So, that’s good. And I’ve got to believe that whatever deacon is selling him, he’s not buying.

Steffy: No. No, of course not. But deacon’s getting into his head. He is. And finn does have this weird connection to sheila.

Ridge: Why? What did she do? Nothing. She gave him life and then she almost took it away again. What is the connection? I don’t get it. Look, what if kelly and hayes had been there?

Steffy: No, no, no. Don’t even– don’t even say that. I don’T… sheila’s gone. She’s gone for good.

Sheila: I’m sorry that I startled you and made you faint.

Deacon: Honey, I wasn’t crazy. My eyes weren’t playing tricks on me. I knew what I saw at the crematorium.

Hope: No. No, it’s– it’s– it’s impossible.

Finn: I thought the same thing.

Deacon: After I saw the toes, I saw some text messages on sheila’s computer. They were with a woman named sugar.

Hope: Sugar?

Deacon: When lauren fenmore came to town, I asked her about it, okay? Because there’s no one who knows more about sheila than lauren. And when I mentioned the name sugar, you should have seen lauren’s face. She told me about how years ago, sheila tricked sugar into getting cosmetic surgery to look exactly like her. And eventually, sugar got sent to the– to the mental ward and everyone thought it was sheila.

Finn: Look, the– the two looked identical.

Deacon: Well, identical, except for the fact that sugar has ten toes. Sheila has nine.

Sheila: She wanted revenge. Sugar abducted me and she chained me up in an old warehouse.

Finn: Her plan was to break into my home, harm steffy and the kids and have sheila take the fall.

Hope: So, steffy didn’t kill sheila?

Finn: No.

Deacon: I mean, it all comes back to the toes. Those nine beautiful toes and that one missing digit.

Sheila: Yeah. I– look, I’m– I’m not proud of– of what I did to sugar. I’m not proud of a lot of things that I’ve done. Mistakes that I’ve made. But I’m– I’m a better person now. I’ve changed. And I’d– I’d never go after steffy. I’m– I’m not that person anymore.

Finn: And, look, I understand how you feel, hope. Even when deacon told me about sugar, I didn’t fully believe it until I saw sheila with my own eyes. And I– I– I can’t explain why, especially with everything that has happened in the past, but… I’m glad that we found you. And that I’m gonna be able to have a second chance with you because sheila’s my birth mother. And she’s alive. My birth mother’s alive.

[ Funky music ]

Deacon: You want some more water?

Finn: Yeah, that’d be good. You need to keep eating and drinking. You were in that warehouse a long time. I– I’d still like to get you to the hospital so we could check you out.

Sheila: No, I– I’ve got the most amazing accomplished doctor right here. I’m fine. I’m– I’m home.

Deacon: You’re alive.

Finn: I’m just glad we found you.

Sheila: Me too. I was so scared. I did everything I could to protect steffy and the kids.

Finn: Yeah, and– and we told you, all right? They’re okay.

Sheila: I– I didn’t– I didn’t care what she did to me. I just– I wanted to protect them.

Steffy: Kelly should be home any minute.

Liam: Oh, nice. It’s good we don’t have to worry about sheila anymore just when our daughter’s out with her friends.

Steffy: Huh. Yeah, tell me about it. I thought this morning, “god, I hope kelly doesn’t get a tummy ache from all the candy and ice cream.” My biggest worry, candy and ice cream.

Liam: Everything else good though? No other concerns?

Steffy: No, kelly’s just really excited to see you.

Liam: Oh, yeah. I’m excited to see her too. I, uh, I mean, I’m glad I got to see you for a second beforehand. I just wanted to check in. I mean, I know you’ve been dealing with a lot. I feel like maybe time has given you a chance to put the sheila stuff behind you.

Steffy: Trying. I mean, logically, there’s nothing wrong. There’s no reason to feel anxious, I– I’m just really worried about finn.

Liam: I guess I thought you and finn already dealt with all his sheila baggage.

Steffy: Well, no, I don’t– I don’t think it could be about that. I mean, sheila’s dead. How could it be about her?

Liam: Yeah, right.

Steffy: I just–

Liam: But?

Steffy: I don’t know, liam. I have this really weird feeling.

Liam: Like what? What’s the feeling? Like that finn is not over it? Or…

Steffy: Finn can’t be over it. Because of deacon. Everything that he’s saying.

Liam: Okay, yeah, which is– all of that is ridiculous.

Steffy: It’s ridiculous. It’s so, it’s so delusional. And finn told deacon to stop it and move on.

Liam: Well, clearly, deacon didn’T.

Steffy: Well, clearly. It’s really stressing out finn. I can see it. I can see it weighing on him. And– and I try to calm him down, but the way he was this morning, the way he was acting, and the way I feel right now, I know he’s not in a good place.

Sheila: We’ve got to find sugar. You’ve got to call the police. She’s gonna hurt steffy.

Finny: No, hey, we told you, okay? Everyone’s fine.

Sheila: No, no, no, no, you don’t– you don’t understand. She’s out there and she’s– she’s dangerous and they’re– they’re not gonna know because she– she looks like me. She’s got my face.

Deacon: We know. Yeah.

Sheila: No, she– she wants to hurt my family, to punish me. She wants me to go to jail for her crimes.

Finn: Yeah, well, that’s not going to happen, okay? Trust me. Right now, our focus is on you and making sure you’re okay.

Deacon: Sugar’s not going to hurt anybody again. Especially you.

Finn: Nobody will. And we’re going to make sure of it. At dot’s an ordinary pretzel just isn’t enough.

Steffy: Voicemail.

Liam: Are you not gonna leave a message?

Steffy: Already did.

Liam: Hey, look, uh, finn’s working, right? So maybe he’s just busy saving–

Steffy: A life.

Liam: I–

Steffy: Yeah.

Liam: Maybe that’s what’s going on for you though. Maybe it’s just the fact that finn is always in these life or death stakes situations.

Steffy: It doesn’t usually affect me like this.

Liam: No, I– I get that. But you’ve been under your own stress lately. And then you add finn and your concern for him to that, and it could compound and it could be a whole thing.

Kelly: Bye, becky! Thank you! I had fun.

Liam: Who is that?

Kelly: Daddy!

Liam: Ah! There’s my offspring.

Kelly: We went to a bead store. I learned how to make bracelets.

Liam: Ooh, that sounds fun.

Kelly: Want to make one? I can show you.

Liam: I was just thinking I want to make a bead bracelet, but first, something very important. I have to give my daughter a hug!

[ Liam laughs ]

Sheila: So, uh, how did you say you found me?

Deacon: It wasn’t easy.

Sheila: How did you know about sugar? You said lauren fenmore said something?

Deacon: Yeah, lauren was in town. She was visiting eric. Came into the restaurant. I told her about those text messages that I found on your laptop. And I also told her that i thought you were still alive.

Sheila: So lauren also thought that I was dead?

Finn: Yeah, everybody did.

Sheila: Well, she must have been thrilled about that.

Deacon: She came up with the information I needed. Pieced it together and it started to make sense.

Finn: And lauren explained who sugar was and how you guys looked alike and how she tried to frame you.

Deacon: That was the key. I mean, I wasn’t going crazy. I wasn’t seeing things. See, after the memorial service–

Sheila: Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait, wait. You had a memorial service?

Deacon: Saddest day in my life. Finn was there.

Sheila: You were? God, I feel awful that you guys thought that I was– I was dead and that you had to have a memorial service.

Finn: Well– well, deacon, he wanted to give you a proper goodbye.

Deacon: It’s a good thing I did because otherwise, we may never have found you. Might not have even known to look, but because of your, uh, beautiful nine toes, I started to piece it together.

Sheila: What are you saying? That me cutting off my toe somehow saved my life? It– it brought me home?

Deacon: Kind of.

[ Deacon and sheila laugh ]

Sheila: Okay. Fine lines? Make an appointment with this.

Steffy: You’re pretty good at this, liam.

Liam: Thank you. Had a good teacher.

Kelly: That’s a pretty one, daddy.

Liam: Well– well it’s for you, so I’m really glad you like it.

Kelly: I made this one for you. Next, I’ll make one for you, mommy.

Steffy: Thank you, sweetie.

Liam: Oh, my god! Wait, let’s trade. This is amazing. I love it.

Kelly: You didn’t read it.

Liam: What did I not read? Oh! I– I-l-y-L. Is this a secret code? Am I in some new club? What is this?

Kelly: It means I love you lots.

Liam: Oh! That’s so funny, because I love you lots. Come here!

[ Steffy laughs ] Whoa!

Steffy: Okay, sorry to interrupt, you fantastic artist, but kelly needs to wash up.

Kelly: Daddy’s not leaving?

Liam: Oh! Not yet.

Kelly: I’m so happy when we’re all together!

Liam: So am I!

Sheila: Oh, so… how did my toes save me? And you– you had a memorial service for me, and you were there. Why– why– why did you think I was dead? That I didn’t just skip town or something?

Deacon: We had good reason, though it didn’t make sense. It wasn’t ’til after the memorial when I really started putting it together. I was saying my final goodbyes, and I pressed the button.

Sheila: Wait, wait, wait. You pressed a button?

Deacon: At the crematorium.

Sheila: Oh, my god, I– what are– what are you talking about?

Deacon: I wanted to see you off through the end, so I went to the cremation. I, um… I kissed you on your head and I pressed the button to start the process, but before you went in, the sheet that was covering your body, it fell, and I saw the toes. I saw 10 toes, and it– it didn’t make any sense to me, because I– I’d seen your face there and at the morgue, and I tried to stop it, but I couldn’t stop it. I thought I was going insane. But then– then I realized once I talked to lauren, I–

Sheila: No, it’s– it was sugar.

Deacon: That’s when I started putting it together. I knew you never could have attacked steffy.

Sheila: Wait, you just told me that steffy and the kids were safe.

Finn: Yeah, they are. They are.

Deacon: I get it. Your head must be spinning. Imagine me after seeing the toes. I mean, I’m trying to figure this out, and I’m telling everybody that I think you’re still alive. I– I sounded like a madman.

Finn: Everyone thought he was. I mean, he wouldn’t let it go.

Deacon: I had moments where I doubted myself, so I dug in. I– I started looking at, you know, the texts, and that’s when I came up with the name sugar, which didn’t mean anything to me until I talked to lauren and she told me… about your history, and why sugar hates you, and it made sense to me that she would– she would want payback. I figured that she did something to you, that she locked you up somewhere. We had to find you, so I– I started going through your phone records and your– your credit card receipts.

Finn: And there was a charge at a convenience store in a strange part of town.

Deacon: So we drove there, and we started questioning people and showing your photo. And tom, thank god for tom.

Sheila: Who?

Deacon: Yeah, this homeless guy who saw your face, it was sugar.

Sheila: So you never gave up.

Sheila: Oh, wow. My love. And my son. You both saved my life. Thank you. So, uh– so, sugar?

Deacon: Sugar’S… not gonna hurt anyone ever again.

Sheila: So, sugar’s really dead. How?

Deacon: Must have been that night that you tried to stop her at the warehouse.

Finn: It was steffy. Steffy killed sugar, thinking it was you. Nothing comes close to this place in the morning.

Liam: Kelly’s, uh, she’s reading a book.

Steffy: Kelly loves her books.

Liam: Yeah.

Steffy: And her daddy.

[ Liam laughs ]

Liam: We got lucky. We have a very, very intelligent daughter, which she clearly gets from her mother.

[ Steffy laughs ]

Steffy: And her creativity from her uncle and her grandfather.

Liam: Hey. Actually, I’m glad she even shares that creativity with me. By the way, thank you for giving us all this time.

Steffy: No, it’s– it’s nice to see you having so much fun.

Liam: Yeah, and I know it’s– it’s complicated and weird. You and finn are married, and you live here, and you’ve got your own schedules and routines.

Steffy: Yeah, and we usually get back to each other, but–

Liam: Still hasn’t called you back, huh?

Steffy: No. It’s not like me to be worried about nothing.

Liam: Well, yeah, but you’ve been wound up tight for so long, it’s probably gonna take a while to just unwind, you know?

Steffy: You’re not wrong about that. Everything that finn and i went through, navigating so many challenges, all because of sheila. Everything that happened here, that night.

Liam: You mean where you were just defending yourself and your family? Yeah, I know.

Steffy: Look, finn gets all of that, he does. But I have to say, you know, his connection to his mother at the beginning, it was confusing and complex. I talked to hope about it. I said, I hated seeing finn in so much pain.

Liam: While being in pain yourself.

Steffy: I just don’t know how much more of sheila our marriage could have endured.

Sheila: So… steffy killed sugar.

Finn: Yeah.

Deacon: Obviously, we didn’t know it at the time. The police identified the body, they took it to the morgue, believing it was you.

Sheila: What do you mean about me? What are you– what are you talking about?

Deacon: Sugar went to finn and steffy’S. She broke in.

Finn: Steffy was alone. And she thought it was you. The power was out and she grabbed a knife to defend herself. And when sugar lunged at her, she stabbed sugar in the heart. So– so… steffy believed that she killed me. Everyone believed that. And you, finn.

Finn: That’s not what happened. Okay, my wife didn’t kill my mother. My– my mother is alive.

Sheila: You’ve just called me your mother.

Finn: That’s what you are. You’re my birth mother. And losing you, it… it made me realize that… this connection… it is real. And it killed me to think, despite everything that has happened in the past, I wouldn’t get to… to see you again. My mother didn’t die. And you didn’t attack steffy. You tried to save her. Just like you did with kelly at the beach that day. And that is who you are working to be. That’s who you are now, right? That’s how much you care. And I know that you’ve been saying that you’ve changed, and– and deacon, he’s been– you know, he’s been saying it too, but… I believe you. Mom, I believe in you.

Sheila: My son.

Finn: Yeah.

Sheila: Oh, my precious baby boy. I love you. I love you so, so much. I just– I never want to be apart from you again.

Finn: Look, I don’t want that either. And I won’t be. I promise you. Okay? I promise.

Sheila: Oh, look at you.

Steffy: Sheila carter is now a bad memory. She can’t hurt us. She won’t be part of finn’s life ever again.

Announcer: Here’s a look ahead.

Liam: Sheila doesn’t have power over you.

Steffy: Or finn.

Hope: No. Sheila.

Sheila: It’s really good– good to see you, hope.

Finn: It’s the truth. She’s alive. My birth mother is alive.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Oh! John, Marlena, thank you for coming. Always good to see you. Is, uh, can I get you anything? Tea? Coffee? No, I’m fine, thanks. No. No. Okay, then. Um, I wanted you to come over because there’s something I want to tell you. Constantine and I are engaged.

Well, best wishes. Well, there’s no need to pretend that you’re pleased about it. Um. I assure you the marriage is a name only, not to be advertised as such, but we are keeping up appearances for immigration’s sake. So, I wanted my circle of family and friends to know the truth. Which is? That Constantine’s visa is expiring and I offered to marry him so he could stay in this country.

I had a prenup drawn up. Um, Constantine had no problem signing it. So I wanted you both to understand that.

I feel like I owe him. Because he was so kind to me. After I lost Victor. And also because I Because of what I did to his daughter?

Okay, Holly, you got this. You can do it. Focus. Okay, problem number three. The function of f is defined by f parenthesis x close parenthesis equals blah blah blah blah. Throw this stupid book out the window.

Yeah, Sophia. I know. Audrey had a huge house party and you weren’t invited. The nerves. Seriously? Who cares? Okay. You got this, girl. You are a badass. You can do it. Just need to focus. The function of F is defined by F.

Hey, little guy. What’s going on? Aw. Trying to keep me up all night. Hey. Well, uh, maybe you can use this pacifier if you still use this one. Uh, yeah. Let me see if it’s right here. Okay. Oh, there you go. Oh, no. I’m on. Oh, jeez. Okay, well, maybe one of these toys here might calm her down. Mom! Mom! Mom! Sloane,

hey. Hey. Hi. Uh, actually, you know what? I was just leaving. Sloane. Eric.

So, you want to tell me what that was all about? Cause, I would just love to know. Hey, why, can’t we just get him home and I’ll explain it to you on the way.

You’re plastered, not to mention untrustworthy and unreliable. Hey, that’s unfair. Okay, yeah, maybe a tad inebriated. Intoxibrated. Okay, I’m four sheets to the wind, but In vino veritas. And I have got some veritas for you. Fine. Just spill it already. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. No, Mr. E. C. If you want to hear it, it’s going to cost you a pretty penny.

And believe me, you are going to want to pay because This dish I’ve got for you This is juicy. It is gonna turn your world upside down all around. Like that strapping beefcake of a rugby player did to me all those years ago. Oh, I remember it well. We locked eyes at this all you can eat buffet. Enough!

What is it you want to tell me? Spit it out now! No, no, no, no. Like I just said, my handsome friend with the accent to die for. If you want to hear it, it’s gonna cost you, and I’m talking that big. Demirra Cashola, that chudder, that chutting. I’m not into games, Stark. So why don’t you just tell me what you came here to tell me right now, and I bet it’d be bloody good.

Oh, trust me. There is

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

You were following Victor’s orders, John. I believe the Victor that I knew would want me to do this for Constantine. I mean, they had had their differences in the past, but eventually they became friends. Yeah, well, that’s because it was more convenient than being at war. But Constantine still held a grudge, to put it mildly, right?

But he forgave you, and Victor. John, I think we need to move forward and leave all this animosity behind us. And as far as marrying Constantine, I feel like I can afford to be generous while still protecting my interests and the interests of the Kiriakis family. You’re an intelligent woman. I’ll support whatever you think is best for you.

so much, Marlena. Ah, Vince! John! I was just telling John and Marlena about our upcoming wedding. Ah, yes, the wedding. I do hope you will both attend. So, do you swear you had no idea that you

and Nicole were going to both be working at the Spectator? No. None.

I know what it looked like, but Nicole was just trying to be friendly. Friendly are a great word choice there, because it’s exactly what it looked like. Like you guys were just getting lost in each other’s eyes. Sloane, it wasn’t long ago, you just, you just walked out the door. I wasn’t even sure when or if you were even coming back or when we were going to talk.

Do you need something to sober up? Leo, a glass of water? How about a garden hose? Garden hose? Is that a euphemism? Okay, okay, I’ll admit I am a little drunk, but it’s the good kind of drunk. The, the liberated from my highfalutin inner critic kind of drunk. I’m not sure that’s the good kind of drunk in your case.

Look, all I want for my secret is some money. Okay. Pridbrobro. Nope. Quidbropro. You want money, right? For what, exactly? How about I give you a little teaser of what I’m talking about? I’m ready. Well, it has to do with someone very close to you. Nicole? Yeah, that was an excellent guess. What about my wife? I know that she’s now a colleague of yours at the Spectator.

Did something happen there? No, are you, um, Are you a fan of the Beatles? Paul, Ringo, no wait, Ringo, John, George, and Paul is the cute one. Oh my God. So my favorite song of theirs used to be Across the Universe, and then when I was 24, Any time I would hear that song I would break out in hives, and to this day I can’t explain it.

That’s it, you’ve wasted enough of my time. Okay, wait, wait, wait, wait, what about, uh, Hey Jude? See you now. Paul wrote that song for John’s son, Julian. And then at the last minute, he changed it to Jude because he thought it sounded better. Do you like that name, Jude? I think it’s adorable in an English schoolboy kind of way.

Get to the point, Leo. What if I told you that you were a father? I already know that I’m a father. I have two children.

Pretty children. What are you

What do you mean?

Hey Jude. Jude what? That is not possible. How would that be possible?

I’m not going to.

We will be at the wedding, of course. Well, we haven’t set a date. We have to do it, though, before Constantine’s visa expires. Um, the sooner we get married, the sooner your immigration problems go away, for good, right? Of course, of course. But first, there are some items of interest that must be taken care of.

During photosynthesis, which of the following produces sugar? Is it A, the light reaction, B, the Kelvin cycles? Come in. Hi. Hi. How’s it going in here? It’s, uh, you know the emoji with the exploding brain? Yeah. Yeah, that’s how I feel right now. Oh, honey, it can’t be that bad. Oh, it’s bad. I mean, there’s so much to catch up on, and I had this giant energy drink because I thought it’d help me focus more, but I think it made me feel more scattered, because, I don’t know.

Honey, the, the, the one with all the caffeine in it? Those are terrible for you. Oh, look at my hand. It’s shaking like a leaf. Sweetheart, when is the last time you spoke to your therapist? Dr. Alvarez is on vacation. Mom, I’m feeling, like, really anxious and weird and I hate it. I hate being like this.

Sweetheart, I know you do, honey, and I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry.

You didn’t think I was coming back? Jude is my son. What do you think I’m gonna do, abandon him? No, of course not. I was just, I was just thinking you were fed up with me. I was hurt. Yeah, that’s all, you know, I felt accused of, of squandering money on Leo, you know, and all I was trying to do is be kind, help the guy out.

I get that

slow. I’m

Oh, you an apology. I’m sorry.

What for? For not being more trusting. More forgiving. So I just, I want to be a better husband for you.

Wow.

Maybe you start by believing me about Leo, okay? And what, what motives I had behind helping him out. Yes. Eric, it’s really hurtful. You know, to have your husband think you’re a liar.

Uh, uh, uh, you’re lying. You’re, you’re just an obnoxious drunk and you’re trying to provoke me. Uh, first off, I am not an obnoxious drunk. I’m a fabrous, yes that is a word, and jocular drunk. Hmm, okay. Do you remember when Nicole kept insisting that Jude was her baby? The one who quote unquote died? She was convinced of it and everyone else thought she was one french fry short of a happy meal?

Of course I remember that. It was terribly painful for her. And for me. That must have been horrible, but the thing is, your son didn’t die. What? I tried to tell you and Nicole. I came here before Christmas, remember? And what did I get as a reward? A thank you card, a Pomeranian, two tickets to the Tonys? No, I got a beatdown and a black eye, and now it is gonna cost you, big fella.

You listen to me, you lying dirtbag. If you don’t get out of here right now, I’m going to give you much worse than a black eye. No, please, I am telling you the truth. You have to believe me. Your son is a liar. I swear it is the truth.

Sorry that I had to take that answer. It’s a, it’s a patient. I’ve got to go. I need to be on my way too. Teresa and I are off to a meeting. Don’t want to miss out on those stale donuts. Well, it looks like we’re all out of here, so congratulations again. John, why don’t you stay? Just for a drink. Why not? The ladies are off into the night, and I know I would love a nightcap.

And the company.

Yeah, sure. Why not? I’ll, um, I’ll see you at home. I’ll grab a ride share. Okay. See you at home.

Maggie is a real dear, is she not? Yeah, you’re a lucky man to have a woman like that in your corner. She really cares about you. Does she though? If you Care for someone and you want to take care of them in all ways Not sure what you mean. I am talking about the prenup, John. But it’s a good thing that I have a plan.

And now that we are both alone, I think now is as good a time as any to put that plan into motion.

I swear on everything that I hold dear, I had nothing to do with the baby switching. Yes, I wrote a screenplay with the exact same storyline, but that was years ago and it never went anywhere.

So you’ve known this whole time that Nicole’s and mine baby is alive. And yet, you said nothing. You did nothing. I tried to tell you! And it’s not like I did nothing, I, I blackmailed someone.

Italian made shoes, cashmere socks, a fountain pen that was very expensive and I lost and I never got to use. You think I could afford all that on Lady Whistleblower’s salary? Alas, the gravy train has been put out to pasture. Wait, that’s not right. The gravy train has left this No. The gravy train has run dry.

So it’s all dried up, has it? So now you’ve come here after having wet your beak a little too much. Trying to extort me. I am not trying to extort you, I just told you. Em. Mm hmm. Well, I just told you. I told you so, now you have to pay me. I take cash, check, Venmo. I will accept Bitcoin, but I prefer fiat.

You can see that payment in hell. Dammit.

I don’t think you’re a liar. But paying for Leo’s hotel room? Just to be nice, I’m not buying it. I can’t even believe we’re still talking about this, Eric.

What? My headache. It is clobbering right now. It came back. Can we just put a pin in it? Oh my God, there you go again. What am I doing? What? What am I doing? No, you’re trying to avoid the conversation. Because you’re paying for Leo’s hotel room. By the goodness of your heart,

I don’t buy it for one second. Unless Hold up, Miss Bossypants. I’m the one blackmailing you, not the other way around, okay?

Unless Leo was blackmailing you, wasn’t he?

Thank you, Marlena, for coming over so late, especially on such short notice. It’s my pleasure. If I can help, I’m glad to. Dr. Evans, hi. Hi, Holly. It’s good to see you again. It’s good to see you too. Um, your mom tells me that you’re feeling overwhelmed. Yeah, I am. It’s just, I have so much studying and homework to catch up on and I don’t know, it’s like the more overwhelmed I feel, the less stuff I get done and I don’t know what to do.

I understand. You know what I do when I’m feeling overwhelmed? I, uh, take a deep breath.

It just sort of relaxes the nervous system. It tells your body that you’re safe. There’s no danger near you. Do you want to try that? Yeah. Yeah,

I guess I feel a little more chilled out now. Good. I’m glad. And, and, take breaks every so often. You know, just, just go outside, take a walk in the garden, or maybe Listen to some music. And what I suggest tonight is, Go to bed early. You know, get some rest. And then you can get up early in the morning and, and, Go back to your studies.

When you’re rested.

In fact, I, I think I’m going to, uh, I’m gonna send a note to your teachers. Just remind them of what you’ve been through. I’m sure they’ll understand. But only if that’s okay with you. Oh, yeah, definitely. Thank you so much, Dr. Evans. Yes, thank you, Marlena. Glad to help. Now, go ahead. Get some sleep. Get your rest.

And, and as far as your work goes, don’t worry about catching up with everything. Just Go at your own pace.

Okay, well, I’m gonna go to bed and try to get some sleep now. Sweetheart, love you. Thank you.

I can’t thank you enough, Marlena. You said exactly what she needed to hear. My pleasure. I hope it helps.

I should, uh, I should get going. Um, actually, if it’s not too much trouble, Marlena, could you stay? I need some help, too.

Fine. Yes, Leo was blackmailing me. With who? Um, Leo, his whistleblower. He did some research, you know? And he uncovered a lot of sordid things from my past. That those sordid things were humiliating. Song, what is it? Don’t talk about it, please. It’s just gonna be more painful for me. I offered him cash to kill the story.

I thought that you would take away my law firm, if anything, if you could. And I thought that if you found out the truth, you know, you would leave me. Sona, I would never leave you over something like that. Can you please just hold me? I can’t believe I let him into our home. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. I’m sorry.

I love you. Will you take advantage of me? No, I can’t believe that I took on a con artist as a client. You know what, there’s no way I’m gonna let him get away with this, I promise you. No, no, no, no, no, please don’t, don’t, don’t go confront him or anything, you know. He didn’t, he didn’t mean to hurt me, that’s the thing.

You know, he’s a terrible child. It came from troubled childhood. He’s a messed up person. He’s not happy with himself. He’s lonely. Well, I’m gonna kill him. What? Eric, it’s dead. No, like I said, I’m gonna kill him.

Alright, how can I help you? Oh, well, Marlena, as much as I’ve tried, I still can’t seem to stop blaming myself for Holly’s problems. Her drug overdose. How stressed she is now, how hard she is on herself. And I feel like it’s because I wasn’t there for her. When she needed me, and she felt abandoned. You did the very best you could in the moment.

That’s all any of us can do. Yeah. I know, I’m I’m gonna try to not feel guilty and just be there for my daughter. And I know we discussed this. In our first session. And that is more important to me than anything. It’s just to be there for my daughter.

You know, we can’t keep our children going through bad times, disappointments, sadness, heartbreaks, that’s just part of living. They have to go through those things. All we can do is love them. And be there for them as you said Yeah, I know you’re right That is all we can do Plan Not sure I follow you Constantine.

I thought we were just gonna have ourselves a little nightcap. Oh, believe me I will be enjoying my ouzo while you get to work. I Get to work

Now where were we you need something from me that is right I need you to break into that safe and steal the prenuptial agreement. Steal it.

I, I could have said something like, give me some money and then I’ll tell you a secret, but no dumb cop here. Tells the secret, then asks for the money. Who does that? What does that even say? Who cares? I just need to pee. Oh, my head is literally pounding right now. Oh, wait, wait. Maybe that’s E. J. here. To give me some money.

Well, Eric! Son of a bitch! Whoa, whoa, whoa! Back it up! Why are you blackmailing my wife? Huh? Huh? Who else are you blackmailing? Nobody! Whoa, nobody. Nobody else has that kind of tender, succulent secret like Sloan has. You see, you could serve the thing in a Michelin star restaurant. Yeah, you know what? She told me you were blackmailing her to keep her assorted details from her past.

I don’t even recall them. She did? I don’t remember that. I don’t remember much of anything right now. Leo! Oh.

Ah, finally, someone went to sleep for mommy. I could just stay there. Damn it. What are you doing? Banging on my door, waking up my baby. Your baby? That is not your baby. You lying bitch! Tell me that that isn’t my child in your arms. Go on, tell me that! Do you have any idea what you put my life and my family through?

Now I am taking that child. And after I prove that he is my son, I am going to call the police and have you arrested for kidnapping. There you go, bitch.

Do you know that the most wonderful, warm hearted thing in the entire world is the strangeness of kinders? I, that’s not right. The kindness of strangers. But you’re not a stranger, though you are being very, very kind to me. You know, how much have you had to drink?

Did I ever tell you one time I almost directed an off off Broadway production of Streetcar Named Desire? I had the striped scarf, the cigarette holder, and then Oh, God. Oh, no. Oh, God. In case.

You know, how many times I dreamed about having you in my bed, and now here you are, and all I want is Dimitri, who left me all by myself. You wouldn’t understand about that. You wouldn’t have the foggiest idea. Actually, I do.

And how does EJ feel about you working with Eric? I haven’t told him yet. I was going to tell him earlier, but then What? But then what? I didn’t want to upset EJ. Because, uh, you know, I thought they might turn it into something in his head that it wasn’t, and, and then, and then Sloane saw Eric and me at the square.

We were with Jude, and she reacted badly when really it was just innocent. Oh boy, you’re skeptical. It’s none of my business. Marlena, please tell me what you’re thinking. You know what I’m thinking. Right. You’re thinking that Eric and I still have feelings for each other. And you’re thinking that because when we had our first session together, I told you that if the baby that I had lost was Eric’s, that I might leave EJ to be with him.

What does that mean to you?

What’s that? You stay here.

Maggie, I thought you’d left. Oh, well, I did. Fellow traveler of mine just finished her first year of sobriety, and I’m supposed to hand her a chip. I drove halfway there before I remembered I, I didn’t have it, so it’s probably in the, in the study. I, I can go get it for you. Why don’t you go outside and get some fresh air, okay?

Constantine is no trouble. I can find it myself. No, you can’t.

I can’t go into my own study. It’s only because I I spilled some tea on your magnificent carpet and I haven’t had the time to clean it up. Oh, for heaven’s sakes, who cares? Oh, I see, John left. He did. He went to call Marlena. He wanted some privacy. Right, right. Um, uh, Here’s the sobriety chip. Okay. I’ll see you later.

John.

John,

I beat you.

Nicole. What does it tell you that if the baby you had been carrying was Eric’s. You would have gone back to him.

Well, it tells me that I still have feelings for Eric. Feelings that I’ve been trying to suppress for a long time. But they’re still there, aren’t they? Do you still love Eric?

Uh, I’m, I’m feeling a little tired now. Marlena, but thank you so much for listening.

It’s fine, I’ll just let myself out. I hope I see you soon.

Do you still love Eric?

Always. Look, sometimes I do things that Messed up, okay? Like stuffing hors d’oeuvres from a Vanity Fair afterparty into a stolen clutch purse. Or, or blackmailing your lovely wife, who did not deserve that. Nobody deserves to be blackmailed. Well, some of the people I went to drama school with did. What I mean to say is that I’m sorry.

I am truly sorry and I would not do anything like that again.

I should hate you for what you did. But the truth is you just, you seem lonely and sad and genuinely contrite. No, I have some compassion for you. Oh, God. Father Eric, thank you. No. And forgive me, please, for I have definitely sinned. Leo, I’m not a priest anymore. This is not a confessional. You might want to become a priest again, because I have something to confess.

To wipe away my sins, to cleanse my soul, all that good stuff. Yes. Something to confess. You said something like that at Jude’s christening. Jude. Jude. Leo.

Arrested for kidnapping. You’re damn right. You’re out of your mind. Oh, don’t bother. The little swine told me everything. What little swine? Leo Stark. He was a drunken, rambling mess, but he told me that Jude is our baby. Nicole’s in mine.

He’s only half right.

Half right? What the hell are you talking about?

Hey, Leo. Come on. Come on, wake up. Come on, man. What do you want to say? What about Jude? Leo?

What does that mean, Sloane? Half right?

It means Jude is Nicole’s baby, but not yours.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Victoria: What? Why are you looking at me like that?

Nick: I just– you know, I’m making sure you’re okay.

Victoria: You better say that I look fine, because I finally slept all the way through the night last night.

Nick: Great, vic. You needed sleep.

Victoria: Yeah. You know, I just keep reminding myself that jordan is dead and there’s nothing that she can do to hurt us again. But she’s popped out of the shadows so many times and just done so many hurtful things that, um, you know, it’s hard to break the habit of being on high alert. How’s summer?

Nick: Um, you know, like a coiled spring. I don’t think she thinks this is really over either.

Victoria: I’m sorry to hear that, nick. You know, I hope she understands that claire didn’t have anything to do with harrison’s kidnapping.

Nick: Oh, I’m sure she does. But in all fairness, she had her doubts about claire. You know, we all did. That includes me.

Victoria: Well, sad to say, I had a moment where I doubted her as well.

Nick: Really? You never showed that.

Victoria: Ah, it was more me questioning myself, wondering if maybe there’s something that I missed. Maybe jordan was able to get to her somehow. But then I talked to cole and he brought me back to the truth. You know, he just– he just talked to me and, you know, he reasoned with me. He was my rock through all of this. For sure. And he kept me well-fed.

[ Both chuckling ]

Nick: Okay.

Victoria: What?

Nick: Uh, you know, it’s just, every time you talk about cole, you get this look in your eye.

Victoria: Shut up.

Nick: You shut up. Seriously. It’s like a dopey look of affection.

Victoria: Oh, come on. You are truly annoying sometimes.

Nick: How long until the two of you pick out furniture and move in together?

Victoria: Okay, now you’re done.

Nick: Not until you admit it.

Victoria: Admit what?

Nick: Vic, I can do this all day long.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Okay, maybe we had a slight, very slight romantic reconnection. But that’s it, nothing else.

Nick: Was that so hard?

Victoria: He’s just been there for me, nick, in so many different ways. When I didn’t think that anyone or anything would be able to get me through it, you know?

Nick: You don’t have to sell me on cole. I know he’s a good guy. The way he’s dealt with our family and newfound fatherhood, couldn’t be easy. And if something romantic does happen between the two of you and it’s what you really want, then I’m happy for you.

Victoria: Thank you.

Victor: Excuse me.

Nick: Hey, dad.

Victor: Have either of you seen your mother this morning?

Victoria: No. Why?

Victor: She didn’t come home last night.

Nikki: How is he? He has to be okay.

Paramedic: We gave him a shot to counteract the opioids, but he’s gonna need to follow up with his doctor.

Nikki: Yes, of course.

Paramedic: Ma’am, have you taken anything?

Nikki: No. No, I– I haven’t had any pills. But I– I have been drinking.

Kyle: Yes, his name is jack abbott and I just wanna know if he was in last night. Can you ask the matre d’? He knows who he is. Oh. I understand. Well, if he stops in, can you tell him his family’s looking for him? Thanks.

[ Knock on door ] Claire. Hi.

Claire: Hi. Is this a bad time?

Kyle: No. No, come in. Are you okay to be out and about?

Claire: I’m okay. Still a little shaky, but okay.

Kyle: Yeah, I only heard bits and pieces about what happened to you, but I’m so glad you made it home safe. Harrison will be too.

Claire: That’s actually why I came by. I wanted to make sure he was okay. Or as okay as can be expected after what jordan put him through.

Kyle: Yeah, he’s holding up better than I could’ve hoped.

Claire: You don’t have to say that for my benefit.

Kyle: No, I know. I mean, yeah, it was horrible and traumatic and it makes me sick that it happened, but harrison’s a tough little kid. He’s getting a lot of love and reassurance, and we’re gonna make sure he has everything he needs to get through this.

Claire: Loving parents make all the difference. Anyway, that’s why I stopped by, so, um, give him a big hug from me, will you?

>>Kyle: Well, that’s a short visit. [ Chuckles ]

Claire: I figured it’s probably best if harrison doesn’t see me. The last thing I want is to remind him of what happened with jordan.

Kyle: You know, actually, I think it would be good for harrison to see you. I mean, he kept asking about you, wanting us to find you, to save you.

Claire: That’s so sweet.

Kyle: I mean, he’s sleeping right now, but he should be up pretty soon. Claire, this wasn’t your fault.

Claire: People keep saying that.

Kyle: Because it’s true. You were just as much of a victim of jordan’s madness as harrison was. Everybody knows that now.

Claire: It still doesn’t make me feel any less guilty.

Kyle: Why would you feel guilty? You had nothing to do with it.

Claire: I did have something to do with it, kyle. I had everything to do with it. Why was jordan here? Why did she go after an innocent little boy?

Kyle: Why would she do anything? Because she’s pure evil and wanted to do as much damage as possible.

Claire: That’s true. But I was her trojan horse into genoa city. She never could’ve snuck into town if it weren’t for me. Started this insane war against everyone. I’m the reason that she could terrorize your family and my family, and I will never forgive myself for that.

Paramedic: Make sure he doesn’t take anything else. Next time he might not be so lucky.

Nikki: I’ll make sure. Jack? Jack. Wake– wake up. Wake up for me.

Jack: What happened?

Nikki: You passed out from all the pills and alcohol.

Jack: Pills?

Nikki: Well, they gave you something to counteract it, but it was touch and go for a while. I am so glad you’re okay. Damn it, jack. What the hell were you thinking? I’ll be honest.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by… blue-emu gave me my hobbies back.

Victor: No sign of her anywhere.

Nick: I don’t even wanna say this, but is there a chance jordan survived that fall and somehow got to mom?

Victoria: Don’t say that, nick. Don’t even think it.

Nick: They never found a body, vic. That woman’s got, like, a thousand lives.

Victor: Son, jordan is dead, okay? And there’s no way she has a hold of your mother.

[ Sighs ] I don’t know what to do. I think your mother’s still suffering from what jordan has done to her.

Victoria: She’s been drinking again.

Victor: Yes, I’m afraid she has.

Victoria: Damn it. I knew it.

Nick: Did you try all the restaurants and bars?

Victoria: Hospitals?

Victor: Everywhere I can think of.

Victoria: Daddy, if there’s anything that we can do to help, just let us know.

Victor: Hold on for one second here. Oh. Thank god.

Victoria: What is it?

Victor: My security team thinks they found out where she is, okay?

Nick: Well, that’s great.

Victor: I’ve got to go.

Victoria: Oh.

Kyle: I’m sorry. I’m not gonna let you beat yourself up over this.

Claire: Kyle…

Kyle: No, how many people tried to stop your aunt and couldn’t?

Claire: Yes, but that night…

Kyle: She is a monster. And you were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Claire: But if I had been on alert, if I reacted more quickly, I could’ve done something.

Kyle: No, no. Don’t go down that hole. There’s nothing good down there. I almost went down it myself. Where was i when harrison was taken? Jordan got into the house. She got you and harrison out of the house, and I didn’t hear. So maybe I’m the one who should feel responsible.

Claire: That is ridiculous.

Kyle: I know. Because there’s only one person to blame. I hate to say it, but justice finally found jordan. How do you feel about that?

Claire: About what?

Kyle: Jordan’s death.

Claire: At first, I couldn’t believe it. Then I was relieved. Then I was scared.

Kyle: Scared?

Claire: That it wasn’t true. That somehow she had managed to escape death yet again, so that she could punish me, punish everyone. That’s why she took us both, you know. So that people would believe that I was in on her plan. I turned my back on her, so she wanted everyone to turn their backs on me. You believed it at first, didn’t you?

Kyle: I won’t lie. It was hard not to. I mean, the way it looked, the timing of it all.

Claire: I would’ve believed it too. That’s how sick she was. This was another way to keep me from my real family, from a normal life. That’s what tortured me. What I thought about every second that I was in that storage unit. That I… wouldn’t make it out to tell everyone I wasn’t involved. That I would die there and no one would ever know.

Kyle: Yeah. You and harrison made it home safe. That’s the only thing that matters.

Claire: And I’m grateful. I just wish I could’ve protected him from her.

Harrison: Claire, you’re okay! My lucky bunny charm worked!

Nikki: Do you remember anything about last night?

Jack: Ah… I remember you trying to drink yourself to death.

Nikki: Yeah.

Jack: You certainly seem more sober now.

Nikki: Well, your collapse knocked some sense into me. I’m going to rehab. I– I’m powerless over alcohol. And god knows my life has become unmanageable.

Jack: You remember step one.

Nikki: Always the most important one.

Jack: I’m glad. It’s wonderful. I’m proud of you.

Nikki: I’m so sorry about the horrible things I said to you last night. I– I just wanted you to leave so I could keep drinking. But you wouldn’t let me.

Jack: I couldn’T.

Nikki: But you put yourself at such risk. Why would you do that?

Jack: I don’t know. Instinct? I had to get you to open your eyes. I was convinced you were gonna try to drink yourself to death. And I was gonna try anything, anything to stop you.

Nikki: Thank you.

[ Door slams ]

Victor: What’s going on here? It ain’t my dad’s razor, dad.

Claire: Hello, summer.

Summer: Claire. It’s, uh, good to see that you’re back.

Claire: Thank you.

Summer: I heard that it was quite the ordeal.

Claire: It was, but everything is all right in the end.

Summer: Yeah, let’s– let’s hope so.

Harrison: Claire never got to read to me because of the witch. Can you read now?

Claire: I would really like to. But I think your mom wants to do it. She missed you so much. She just wants to spend as much time as she can with you right now, but… I can read to you some other time if you like.

Harrison: That works.

Summer: Ready to go upstairs, sweetie?

Harrison: I’m happy claire’s back. You too, mommy?

Summer: Yeah, me too. Let’s go.

Kyle: What did I tell you? Harrison’s thrilled to see you. You’ve taken a weight off his shoulders.

Claire: How does that little guy have such a big heart? It’s really a testament to you and summer.

Kyle: Yeah, he’s definitely your biggest fan.

Claire: It’s really amazing to see him with the two of you. What it’s like to grow up with parents who adore him.

Kyle: We do. He makes everything worth it. Especially when something goes wrong. ‘Cause something always does.

Claire: Is there something else?

Kyle: Ah, probably not. I’m just a little on edge.

Claire: Well, I understand that very well. Even when you are finally safe, it’s hard to really accept it.

Kyle: So, what’s next? Moving forward.

Claire: You mean now that the witch is finally, really dead? I might start by sleeping for a week.

Kyle: And after that? I mean, you’re free, claire. You have a big, new life in front of you. Have you given any thought about what you wanna do with it?

Victoria: Poor mom.

Nick: And poor dad.

Victoria: This is killing him.

Nick: Look, mom’s beaten alcohol before and she’ll do it again once she locks in and decides that’s what she really wants.

Victoria: And with jordan finally dead, she has nothing else to focus on except for her recovery.

Nick: Yeah. I’m sorry about that.

Victoria: Sorry about what?

Nick: For even suggesting that jordan might still be alive.

Victoria: Yeah. Where did that even come from? Look, I know jordan’s escaped from prison and many other places, but… I mean, she’s not immortal, nick. She can’t escape death.

Nick: I know that, but they never found any proof.

Victoria: There’s no way anyone could’ve survived a fall like that. So, until we find the body and we drive a stake through her miserable heart, that’s just gonna have to do.

Nick: Yet the damage she did still lives on.

Victoria: We wouldn’t be chasing mom from one bar to another if jordan hadn’t shoved alcohol down her throat, knowing full well what the outcome would be.

Nick: Yet mom still saved her life after jordan took that poison.

Victoria: Maybe that’s what really drove her over the edge, knowing that she could’ve ended all of this if she had just let jordan die.

Nick: Do you remember when mom told us that alcoholics never need an excuse to drink?

Victoria: [Sighs ] I just hope we can find an excuse to get her to stop.

Nikki: What are you doing here?

Victor: What do you think I’m doing here? I’ve been looking for you! All night! They told me you’d be here. The paramedics were here.

Nikki: I’m so sorry, victor. I– I don’t know what to say.

Victor: I bet you are. So, you and abbott had a little party?

Nikki: No, nothing like that.

Jack: Victor, things got out of control. I’m sorry. None of this is nikki’s fault. The ambulance was for me. Your wife saved my life. Sometimes, the lows of bipolar depression

Jack: Victor, you have every right to be furious.

Victor: You have no idea how I’m feeling right now.

Nikki: This all started with me. He was just trying to help.

Jack: No, no, don’t make excuses for me. I slipped. This is not nikki’s fault. No, I should’ve been protecting her. I should’ve been her sponsor. I got messed up. I own this.

Nikki: That’s not how it happened.

Victor: I don’t give a damn how it happened. How are you feeling?

Nikki: I’m finally ready to go to rehab.

Victor: About time.

Nikki: I know I must disgust you right now. I’m so sorry.

Victor: Never mind any of that. Just get cleaned up. I’ll take you home.

Nikki: I– you two, leave each other alone.

Victor: Don’t worry about it. Kindly get cleaned up.

Nikki: I’ll be right back.

Victor: So, you’re supposed to protect my wife, right?

Jack: I know. I– I saw her drinking again, realized how I had not been there for her again. I couldn’t take it. The pills were supposed to be the answer. They were supposed to make those feelings go away.

Victor: I don’t give a damn about feelings. What you did was unconscionable.

Jack: You’re right. For me to break after all– all this time, it’s an embarrassment for me even more that you know it. But nikki has turned a corner here. You heard her. She’s ready to make the next huge step. And once she’s back from recovery, once she’s clean, I will make it up to her somehow, but she saved my life.

Victor: I would not have saved your life.

Claire: Whenever I would dream about a future, jordan was always there to remind me who I was and where I stood. That my life wasn’t my own. It was just about her and her mission.

Kyle: Well, I promise you, when it finally hits home and you realize your life is entirely yours, it will feel like christmas and new year’s and your best birthday all rolled into one.

Claire: I hope so.

Kyle: I know it. And you deserve it.

Claire: Second chances are hard to get. Genoa city has been far kinder to me than I ever could’ve hoped and I’m not going to waste it.

Kyle: Good.

Summer: Kyle, harrison wants you to come upstairs and check out the house he made for his lucky bunny.

Kyle: Another architect in the family.

Claire: Well, I’d better hurry. I’ve already taken up enough of your time.

Kyle: All right.

Claire: And if it’s okay, I would like to see harrison again.

Kyle: Yeah, of course. He would love that.

Claire: If he talks about jordan or what happened, I would be more than happy to talk him through it. I can relate. I can remind him that I’m okay and he’s okay too.

Kyle: Yeah, I hadn’t thought about it like that, but yeah, I mean, that makes sense.

Claire: Anyway, um, bye. Thanks again for letting me see him.

Kyle: So, let’s see that lucky bunny house he built.

Summer: Just a second. I– I wanna talk to you, alone.

Kyle: Okay.

Summer: Look, I know that harrison seems like he’s totally okay, but he’s not. Not after everything that he’s been through. And we’re not doing him any favors by not dealing with it right now.

Victor: Are you ready?

Nikki: I think so.

Victor: When we get home, I’ll make arrangements for a rehab facility. Got a problem with that?

Nikki: I’m not comfortable leaving jack here alone.

Jack: No, no, no, no. You go. I– I’ll be fine. Um, I won’t leave until I’m feeling stronger. Promise.

Nikki: Before I go, I need you to give me the rest of the pills. (Male announcer) an important message for americans age 50 to 85.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue…

Victoria: Claire? Claire?

Kyle: Did something happen upstairs?

Summer: Well… he made a house for his bunny, right? But then he started talking about how he needs to add doors and locks to keep all the bad people out. Then he was asking me about claire. And if I really think that she is okay. And when is she coming back?

Kyle: He was worried about her.

Summer: I think it’s more than that, kyle.

Kyle: Then what?

Summer: It’s like– it’s like he needs to make sure that she’s safe. To convince himself that he’s safe.

Kyle: Okay, it just happened, summer. It’s gonna take some time.

Summer: Yes, I know. But I’m worried that he’s talking about claire and not himself. It’s like he doesn’t know what to do with all these feelings that he has. I think he needs to see someone.

Kyle: Yeah, yeah, yeah, I agree.

Summer: Good. As soon as possible.

Kyle: I’ve already made some calls. And we need to find him a new nanny too.

Summer: Uh, no, I’m– I’m gonna watch him for now.

Kyle: What about your work?

Summer: I’ll figure it out. What we need to do right now is to make sure our son feels safe again. Whatever it takes. Nothing else in my life is more important than that.

Victoria: No, cole. I got home and claire wasn’t here. She didn’t mention that she was going anywhere, so I thought she might be with you. I checked with security already and they said that she’s not up at the ranch either. I’m trying to stay calm. It’s just that something that nicholas said earlier just– it has me freaked out. Well, what if jordan survived somehow? No, I know it sounds crazy, but I– oh, thank god. Okay. She’s fine. She just walked in. I’m sorry. I’m sorry I dumped all of this on you. I’ll call you later. Okay. Where were you?

Claire: I– I wanted to check on harrison. See that he was okay.

Victoria: Never scare me like that again.

Victor: Should never have allowed jack abbott to be your sponsor.

Nikki: I keep telling you it wasn’t his fault.

Victor: Of course, it’s his fault. He matched you drink for drink.

Nikki: Because he didn’t know what else to do.

Victor: Oh, really? He admitted himself that he was responsible.

Nikki: That’s because he didn’t wanna humiliate me in front of you.

Victor: Oh, what a big heart. His gallantry knows no bounds.

Nikki: All right. Do you wanna know the truth or do you wanna keep blaming jack because you can’t bear the thought that your wife is a hopeless drunk? I was already wasted by the time jack got there.

Victor: What? And he didn’t call me?

Nikki: No, because he knew it would kill me to have you see me that way.

Victor: Oh, really? So he just stood by and watched you?

Nikki: No, he didn’T. He tried to distract me with everything he could think of. I had lost hope. I was just ready to drink myself into oblivion. Jack was desperate to save me, so he decided to… try to shock me out of my binge by joining me.

Victor: What? What a stupid idea. And then what? I could’ve lost you.

Mike had a heart

attack a year ago.

Victoria: So what was it like being back there?

Claire: Strange. I tried not to think about jordan having been in the house waiting to grab us both. Hey, do you think harrison might forget? That it might seem like a bad dream and fade away?

Victoria: For his sake, I do hope so. I wish the same thing for you too, claire. But jordan is gone. We don’t have to worry about her anymore. So, um, was kyle okay with you coming over?

Claire: Yeah, he couldn’t have been nicer, more supportive. He doesn’t blame me at all for what happened.

Victoria: And nor should he. In fact, if anyone tries to hold you responsible for what happened, I want you to tell me. You’re a victim in this. And if someone can’t see that–

Claire: What, you’re gonna set them straight?

Victoria: Well, don’t laugh. I do know how to make a point. So, was summer there?

Claire: She doesn’t wanna be away from harrison right now. She loves him so much.

Victoria: Did she say anything to you?

Claire: She was civil.

Victoria: Oh, really? That’s all?

Claire: Well, it must be hard for her to see me at the house, anywhere near harrison. She didn’t exactly trust me before any of this happened and that’s never going to change now.

Victoria: Oh, well, you know what? A mother’s first instinct is to protect their child. And once the threat is gone, then eventually, they let their guard down. Just, you know, give your cousin a little time.

[ Phone pings ] What a relief.

Claire: What?

Victoria: Ah, nothing. Your grandmother’s finally home.

Claire: Home from where?

Victoria: Ah… it’s a long story, and I will– I’ll fill you in later, okay? But right now, I have to get up to the main house.

Nikki: I’m sorry I put you through this again. But it made me realize that rehab is my only option. I wanna get sober again. For you, and– and the kids, and most importantly me.

Victor: I’m relieved to hear you say that, okay?

Nikki: But it did take jack’s actions to wake me up.

Victor: Do me a favor. Do not mention that man and his idiotic plan that almost got you killed, okay?

Nikki: I don’t wanna argue with you.

Victor: I don’t want to hear his name again, period.

Nikki: Well, um, I’m gonna go upstairs and pack a bag.

Victor: You’re doing the right thing.

Nikki: I know I am.

Victor: I’m sure you’ll come out of this stronger and healthier than ever. I love you, okay?

Nikki: I love you.

Kyle: Dad, thank god, you’re home. Where have you been? Are you okay? Nothing comes close to this place in the morning.

Nikki: Oh. Hi.

Victoria: Mom, are you okay?

Nick: We saw dad earlier. He’s pretty worried.

Nikki: Yeah, I know, and I’ve apologized to him for that. It was a terrible night. The worst one yet. But an important one. I’ve decided to check myself into rehab.

Victoria: I’m relieved, but we didn’t realize that–

Nick: We just didn’t know it had gotten that bad.

Nikki: Yeah, well, I’ve gotten pretty adept at hiding my problem. But there won’t be any more hiding. It’s time for me to face this head-on.

Nick: Well, I hope you know you have our support, 100%.

Victoria: This is a good thing, mom. And anything that you need.

Nikki: Ah, actually, there– there is one thing.

Nick: Name it.

Nikki: Please be particularly kind with your father. This has really shaken him. So, promise me that you will look after him and make sure he stays steady and calm. I love you.

Victoria: I love you.

Nikki: I love you too, darling.

Jack: Of course, I’m okay. Why would I not be?

Kyle: ‘Cause you look like hell. And you’ve been out all night. You know, mom’s been worried sick. I’ve been making calls, leaving messages.

Jack: Yeah. A friend needed help. Everything’s fine now. Except I need a few hours of sleep.

Kyle: That’s it? That’s all.

Jack: How’s harrison?

Kyle: Summer is worried about him. Wants him to see a child therapist to make sure he’s processing his feelings and not pushing them down.

Jack: I think that’s the right thing, good. I’m glad the two of you are doing everything you can.

Kyle: And claire came by.

Jack: Oh, how did that go?

Kyle: He was happy to see her. Relieved that she’s okay. Those two were buddies before, but their bond is even stronger now.

Jack: Such a shame they had to go through what they did.

Kyle: Yeah, it’s a shame a lot of us doubted claire in the first place. She knows what people thought, what they may still believe. It’s been rough on her, on top of what she went through.

Jack: I get it. I am sympathetic.

Kyle: People had a lot of knee-jerk reactions.

Jack: It’s unfortunate. But you know, when someone you love is in danger, you just react. Maybe you’re right, maybe you’re wrong. In the moment, all you have is your instincts. You get through the crisis and you deal with the repercussions later.

Kyle: Dad, are you sure you’re okay?

[ Knocking on door ]

Jack: Hold on.

Victor: I’m giving you this warning once, and once only. Don’t you ever come near my wife again.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless…

Nate: I thought we were friends, audra. And that’s what friends do. They tell each other the truth.

Audra: Are you sure that’s all it is, nate?

Lily: What is this meeting about?

Mamie: Oh, well, I– I would prefer to wait until everyone’s arrived. I promise. It’s going to be worth it.

Victor: How’s your relationship with victoria? Has something changed?

Diane: You have thrown away years of sobriety for nikki newman!

Jack: My sobriety is not at risk.

Diane: How do I know you don’t have pills on you right now?

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

[ Panting ] Come on. I thought we were just going for a run.

[ Coughs ] I can’t believe I let you talk me into hiit training. Okay, listen. What we just did in 20 minutes is the equivalent of an hour-long run. So I just did your heart a major favor. Well, don’t expect a “thank you” because the way my heart is beating out of my chest right now, I’m glad to be next to a doctor-to-be. Yeah. Um… I’m not so sure about that anymore. What? I used to be so sure about my future. Now, not so much. All right. Which one do I wear? What do you mean? Which one do I wear to the hearing? Mom, they both look the same. They’re nothing alike. This one is for summations, and I usually won those. And this one is the relaxed, “I don’t feel anxious” look. Okay, I-I’d say go with the one that makes you feel comfortable. Yeah. Well, they both do, for different reasons. Kristina, what do you think? Oof. Oh, fine. All right, fine. I’ll wear the lucky one. No, no, no, no, no. That wasn’t about the suit. It’s my little kicker weighing in. We’re here. Not so fast. We had an agreement. You were gonna help me get a meeting. I was gonna help you get closer to willow. I’m backing out already, are you? Just want to make sure that you fully appreciate what I am doing for you. Congressman mcconkey is a key figure in the U.S. House. He has the ear to all the major players in D.C., And he wants to speak with me. I’m sure you’re very honored. I am. And I also understand it’s because of his relationship with my father. This is happening because of my personal connection. And I want to make sure that you don’t screw it up. In other words, you want me to be grateful and follow your lead. How could I not, nina? You’re such a people person.

[ Sighs ] Hey. This is a surprise. Yeah. What’s going on? What’s that? Something for, uh, the kids? Open it. It’s for my son. Oh, for this kid?

[ Chuckles ] Oh, wow. What the heck? What for? These are amazing. Look at these. Thank you. Well, last time, uh, we were at the gym. I-I saw your gloves. They looked like they’ve seen better days, so… little rough?

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. I got those. Uh… they’re, you know, 14-ounce, more padding. Yeah. They’re good to hit the bag with, okay? Um, you can use your old gloves… to spar. Yeah, when I get back, yeah. Yeah. I mean, look, I know you don’t hit the bag anymore, especially right now. I know you’re not into that. But, um… thank you. Appreciate it. It’s the least I can do since you’re the only person in my family right now that I can trust. Carly. Where’s frank? Uh, he’s down the hall. Sonny home? No. No, he’s out. Okay. Well, I’ll wait here till he gets back.


the congressman’s been looking forward to this. Well, thank you. That’s nice to hear. He and my father were great friends. Aw. Mr. Cain, you are not on his schedule. Mcconkey: Not in this lifetime, fred. I wouldn’t endorse him for dog catcher. The man is a pathological liar… perhaps we should come back if now’s not a good time. I’ve worked with him since he was in bell bottoms, organizing campus sit-ins. His bark is worse than his bite.

[ Chuckles ] Oh, really? No. Follow me. Mcconkey: I don’t give a damn about party loyalty. I care about a functioning government, and I bet that goober couldn’t even remember his actual name. Now, just stop wasting my time. Wow.

[ Chuckles ] Congressman. Oh, nina, look at you. The last time I saw you, you were riding on dan’s shoulders with your hair in ribbons. And you, congressmen, have never looked so distinguished. Oh, it’s the gray hair, is it? Well… and they say politicians are smooth talkers.

[ Laughs ] Nice to see you. And you. Thank you for seeking me out. And I feel honored that you’re trusting me with your statement. I trust you, but, uh, who’s the suit? I was so smug about being over my morning sickness. This little one is definitely making up for it with all his kicking and squirming. I thought maybe it was just from all the spicy foods I’ve been eating, but — oh, oh! Blaze found this incredible restaurant that has the most delicious

pasteles. You have to try it. It’s — it’s so good. We’re obsessed. Who? You and blaze? No, me and the baby. This little one loves spicy food as much as I do. Well, you didn’t when I was pregnant with you because I had indigestion the entire time. And we already talked about your kicking. This is really nice. You know, I don’t share too much about my pregnancy with molly ’cause it’s sensitive. Oh, I kinda get that. I think once the two of you get over this initial awkwardness, things will get a little easier. And she’ll probably enjoy hearing about the baby and how you’re doing. I don’t know. I just — I never want to hurt her feelings. But I do really appreciate that I can share this with you guys because this is the most powerful, profound experience I’ve ever had in my life. I mean, it’s amazing. Having this little life growing inside of me, it’s just like — phew! Anyway, it’s so incredible. I know both of you know exactly how I feel. I’m thinking about switching my major. From pre-med? Why? Because I’m not sure that I want to be a doctor. And it is such a huge commitment, trina. I mean, should I really be doing it if I’m anything less than all in? I-I guess not. Wow. What — what brought this on? I don’t know. I’ve been thinking about it for a while. And then all of that stuff went down with adam, and it just freaked me out. Wait. Okay. Joss. Adam’s problems had nothing to do with his major. No, I know that, but it — it — it gave me a glimpse into the next few years of my life. And it’s another year with a full course load. And — and then it’s studying for the mcats. And then it’s med school, and then a residency, and then maybe a specialty fellowship. Like, I’m exhausted just talking about it. Yeah. I hear you. Becoming a doctor is no joke, and my mom has told me some pretty daunting things, but she always said that it was worth it and she loves it. Yeah. And she’s amazing at it. And I have nothing but pure admiration for those who pursue a medical degree. It’s just… is that for me? I mean, I know that I want to do something in science, but I’m just not sure that being a doctor is my passion. You can go do whatever you need to do, ava. I don’t need to be monitored. This is sonny’s house. And I am an invited guest. So let’s get something straight. You might think you can come in here and start ordering me around because of your prior relationship with sonny. But that’s over, carly. As far as sonny is concerned, you’ve gone too far. Wow. Okay. Well, as long as we’re getting things straight, let me be clear. You may have appointed yourself sonny’s gatekeeper, roommate, or whatever the hell you want to call yourself. But I will speak to my ex-husband, the father of my children, whenever I need to. And that’s never gonna change. You know, you got, uh — you got more people in your corner than you think you have. Well, people on my payroll don’t count. Diane is representing jason. But diane always represented jason. She can still represent you, too. Well, yeah, but, you know, we’ll see if she can work for both of us. Did you hear that nina signed the divorce papers? She’s another one out of my life. Yeah, I’m sorry that ended badly. I know you, uh… I know you really cared about her. Nah, that’s all right. That’s all right. I don’t — you know, I don’t trust her. I don’t trust really anybody anymore. I mean, jason, dex, nina, michael, carly. Carly hits the most ’cause you know that I-I went to the metro court the other day, and when she made her triumphant return, do you know what she said to me? “Get out of my life!” What do you mean, just like that, no lead-up? No. I-I asked — I said to her, why — “why, when jason offered to buy the hotel back for you, you said, yeah? When I offered, you turned me down.” And you know what she said? “Stay out of my life.” I mean, I-I can’t do that. Because we have, you know, kids, grandkids. She’s trying to cut me out. That ain’t happening! Okay, look, why don’t you let things cool down a little bit between you two, okay? You’ll work it out. No, because once carly makes up her mind like that, there’s no getting through to her. Okay, well, hey, it’s a good thing you got me, then, right? You know… it is a good thing that you have my back, ’cause I’ll always have your back. Hey. Is something going on? It’s — it’s — it’S… yeah. I’m concerned that, uh, dex has joined the pcpd.


He doesn’t have a camera,so he’s not a photographer. So, why is he here? Uh, congressman, this is drew cain — I’m andrew cain, congressman. It’s a pleasure to meet you. I am the ceo of aurora media. I’m the publisher of crimson. But people call me drew. Well, drew… I have an appointment to speak with nina alone. I’m so sorry, congressman. I didn’t mean to overstep. It’s just I mentioned to drew that I was talking to you today, and he expressed an interest to come along. I’ve been a supporter of yours for years, sir. Well, you need to make an appointment. Um, and while I’m talking with nina, maybe you could see mariel, and she could fit you in maybe sometime after the election. I could totally do that, but we are both busy men. I’m here right now. Why not take advantage of the situation, right? There’s actually a specific project that I’d love to discuss with you in particular, sir. Yes, but I don’t hand out favors to corporations. Don’t worry, congressman. I will show drew out, and we can proceed with your statement. The project has nothing to do with aurora whatsoever. It has to do with the people of port charles — your constituents. Would you share a moment of your time for them? Well, I wish I could stay and chat a little longer, but I have gotta go pick up my nearly grown teenage son from school. How’s danny doing? Uh, I don’t know. He really hasn’t been talking to me much lately. I don’t know if it’s a teenage thing or a jason thing, but he and i are disagreeing on how much time he should be spending with his father, so… well, he’s got you to count on, and that’s everything, so just give it time. Thanks, mom. You’re welcome, honey. I love you. Love you, too. Bye. Love you. I love you, sis. Love you, baby.

[ Laughs ] She’s okay, right? Well, considering that her boyfriend was shot and her ex has mysteriously returned and danny wants to spend all his time with him. I-I-I love jason, but I really understand why sam is so worried about her son spending so much time with jason. Well, she’s very protective of danny. Speaking of protective mommies, how’s my girl? Seems like the trimester is going well for you. Mom, I’m actually — I’m really good. I am. It’s molly and tj I’m so worried about. So, now I have to figure out what major I want to switch to so I can still graduate on time. And in order to do that, I’ve gotta figure out what it is I want to do in the first place. Same. I’m behind on credits unless I want to play a game of catch-up during summer, and I definitely don’t want to do that. Yeah. All I can do is, like, work at the gallery. Well, I mean, you’re still grieving spencer. Yeah, but I really don’t want to be stuck on that. I really don’T. I want to care about… anything. And it’s weird because it’s just not like me. I used to know where I wanted to go and where I wanted to be, and — and now I don’T.

[ Exhales ] Well, I feel you on that. But you were on track. That’s why I’m so surprised that we’re here in the same boat. What changed? All right, halt. We’re heading back up. Yeah, I — yeah, I heard that dex was, uh, accepted into the academy. I can’t tell you how to do your job. But you’d be wise to stay away from him. Yeah, you know, dad, we probably shouldn’t be talking about that. Well, I-I’m just telling my son how to, you know — to watch his back, because from my experience, dex can’t be trusted. I mean, I was good to dex. I did everything for dex, and he turned on me. So if you’re ever in a — in a difficult situation, don’t expect dex to cover for you. Hey, look, I-I don’t expect to be in that position with dex. I mean, you know, anna and the cops and whoever else, they can believe all this — whatever comes out of his mouth. But I know you’re too smart. You know better. I’ll tell you right now, you’re gonna hit those bags…

[ Grunts and laughs ] …In no time, right? All right. You can talk to sonny whenever and however you want to. But sonny isn’t here. So why don’t you leave a message, and if sonny wants to talk to you, he will? But something tells me you’ll be waiting a while for that call.

[ Laughs ] You know, for someone who claims to be so confident in her situation, you sound a little defensive. You sound desperate. That’s why you came barging in here and planting your sad little flag in the middle of sonny’s living room. ‘Cause you can feel him slipping from your grasp. And you know you’ve screwed up with sonny for good.

[ Door opens ] Carly, what are you doing here? Where’s donna?


The docks have remained under-utilized for decades, and I think we can all agree, continue to attract criminal activity. Now, there’s two piers in particular — unused piers that have incredible infrastructure, beautiful views that can be developed into something amazing to benefit the people of port charles. And generate tourist revenue, eh? Well, that’s one of the goals. Absolutely. I’ve been working with deputy mayor jordan ashford to figure out ways to redirect some of that revenue into the city’s budget to be used for things like public transportation and to have more weekend hours in the libraries, more green-energy projects. Jordan, huh? Yeah, well, we crossed paths a few times when she was police commissioner, and I was pleased to see that she was taking on the deputy mayor. She has some impressive ideas. She really does. That’s why we’re working together on this, but as you know, a project of this scope requires federal funding. So I guess my question for you, sir, is, can we count on your support? Well, I’m intrigued. So far, it sounds good. But I can’t help you. What do you mean, molly and tj are having trouble? What happened now? Well, apart from tj giving me an inquisition about my sleeping habits and forbidding me from seeing my father? Well, this is why I told you that we have to have some grace, because this is a new situation. Yeah, it’s a funny thing about extending grace. You know, you actually have to acknowledge that maybe your behavior is part of the problem. I don’t see tj doing that anytime soon. And, you know, honestly, it’s insulting to insinuate I don’t know how to take care of myself or this baby. I think I’m doing a pretty good job. And it’s not just the way he’s being towards me. I feel like there’s some tension between him and molly. Well, there’s tension between every couple every now and then, particularly when there’s a life-changing event. Well, they can figure that out for themselves. I’m the one who is carrying this child, and I don’t deserve to be micromanaged. Hey. I’m sorry I’m

homelater than I thought, but I had to stop at my mom’s to see kristina. Hey, that’s okay. Is danny home? Uh, no, not yet. How’s kristina doing? Oh, you know, she’s hormonal and — and grumpy and stuff, all the pregnant — wait. Is that a gift for somebody? Oh, yeah. Sonny got me, uh… got me some new boxing gloves. Wow. That was really nice of him. Mm-hmm. These are really good gloves, you know. Yeah, they are. They’re nice. How was your visit with sonny? Yeah, that was fine.

[ Sighs ] Don’t do that.

[ Chuckles ] Something’s wrong. Obviously. You can talk to me. Uh, it’s just, you know, uh, you know, that line I’ve drawn between work and being sonny’s son. I don’t know, I kind of feel like maybe I might have crossed it. I need to talk to youalone. I wasn’t clear. Does carly get to dictate what happens in this house? I need to talk to you about donna. I’m not discussing our daughter in front of ava. I have a call to make to the gallery to check on a delivery. Excuse me. It’s donna okay? She’s fine. I just, um… I wanted to have this conversation in person. I’m not bringing donna to sleep over this week. I’m not bringing donna

here at all anymore. Why not? It’s not good for donna to be here with you.


Well, you might as well stay for this, drew. Um, I have lung cancer. Stage 4. I, uh, intend on serving out the rest of my term, but then I will be stepping down to be with my family. I know it’s a political clichĂ©, but in this case, it happens to be true. I am so sorry, congressman, for you and for your family and for the people that you serve. And I know that you will be dearly missed by your colleagues in the house. Does your staff know? Does mariel? Yes, mariel knows, and select members of my staff. I wanted to stay focused on my remaining programs and legislation. And, um, well, I want this statement not to be about pity, sentimentality, or hysteria. There’s enough political spectacle to begin with. I assure you, I will see to it. I’m deeply saddened by this news, congressman. I’m so, so sorry. If there’s anything that I can do to help in any way, please let me know. But if I may, your term doesn’t end until january of 2025, correct? Drew, talk about being insensitive. Nina thinks I’m being insensitive, but I really think that this project could be your legacy for the people of your district, to take a place that was previously neglected and — and turn it into a showpiece. Give the people of port charles just something beautiful. A place to gather by the water like this would be such a gift, not only for the people here now, but for future generations. Well, go on. You do still have time to push this in the house. It could be your farewell piece of legislation, and given your current diagnosis, who’s gonna vote against you? When you told me that you were going into pre-med, I remember thinking to myself I never heard you express this before, but I was so proud of you that I didn’t put it together. Put what together? That it had something to do with dex. Oh. Well, yeah. I mean, when cam and i were falling apart and I was catching feelings for dex, he got really hurt. And I had to stitch up his side, and I had no idea what I was doing. And it was the most helpless feeling. And I remember wanting to be able to do more than just wait around and be concerned. You know, I wanted to be able to help people, especially in an emergency. And my people, you mean dex. Well, okay, well, sonny should have known better than to discuss police business with you. But from what you just told me, I think you handled it pretty well. Yeah, I mean, sonny didn’t come right out and tell me not to act on information dex may have, but, uh, you know, he sent a message. He assumes dex is gonna talk and that anna’s gonna listen to him. He didn’t ask you to interfere on an investigation. No, not yet, but he’s come this far, so that’s probably next. Anna called this, too. How so? At chase’s bachelor party, the guys were shunning dex, and, uh, I questioned the wisdom of bringing him onboard to anna. Okay. And what did anna think about that? Uh, she kind of reversed it on me and…

[ Chuckles ] …Said maybe it’s what dex could be telling us at the pcpd about my dad that — that might bother me and, uh, steer clear of him, and, uh, didn’t want to put me in a position where I’d be compromised or tempted to protect sonny. Yeah, well, there’s nothing wrong with setting boundaries. Yeah, but the thing is, I-I used to set the boundaries for myself. I-I didn’t need someone else to — to set them for me, you know? I think that you are being too hard on yourself. Everyone in town knows that dex worked for sonny. And cops — they are bound to be suspicious. And that does create a hostile work environment. I think it was good that you made that point to anna. There’s just — there’s one other thing that I haven’t told anna, or you for that matter, and that’s when I found out that dex was applying to the police academy, my first thought was, how could this hurt my father? That’s not thinking like a cop. That’s thinking like a son who’s worried that his father’s already guilty. You’re using our daughter to get back at me? No, I am protecting donna. She shouldn’t hear from her father that her mother betrayed him. Well, it sounds like you’re protecting yourself. No, I don’t want donna involved in an adult situation that she can’t possibly understand or poisoned by bitterness and resentment, sonny. Do you think I would do that, carly? I don’t know! That I would say something against you to our daughter? I barely recognize you anymore! I don’t know what you’re capable of, sonny. Well, I’m — I’m donna’s father. Legally, I have rights. If I have to take you to court, I-I’ll do that if I have to. Wait. Okay, please, take me to court. Let’s put it all out on the record. Let’s put it in the light of day and let the judge decide who donna should go home with. It’s not you. First, you turned on me. Now you’re using our daughter… no, I am trying to protect you both, sonny. Donna doesn’t deserve to be around your level of hate and anger right now. You’re getting everybody in my family to turn against me. Oh, my god. Why? Why? Because of jason? Can you hear yourself? Yeah. You’re not making any sense. You’re not listening to reason at all. Y-you’re living in an alternate universe. It’s like everybody’s out to g– oh, my god. Oh, my god! What? Sonny! Where are you going?

[ Sighs ] Carly, what the hell are you doing? I’m making sure you’re taking your medication.


Congressman, drew’s enthusiasm for his project has clearly clouded his sense of tact. He will wait outside while we finish our conversation. No, no, no, no. I’m not insulted, nor am I swayed, nina. Uh, do you know how many developers have sat in that chair with a slick pitch and an outstretched hand? More than a few, I have no doubt. But that is not what’s happening here, congressman. I truly believe in this project, and knowing what you’re facing, I think this would be such a legacy for you. Well, how do I know you’re not beautifying these docks just in order to turn them around into luxury apartments on the federal dime, you know? I-I believe in public projects. I-I like them, but I may not be around here to see how things work out. Well, do you really think that jordan ashford would be on board for a real-estate scheme? No. But if you’re well-funded and smart enough, she may not be able to stop you. Um, well… it all comes down to your true intentions. What do you think, nina? I mean, you brought this guy in here. Should I trust him? Molly and tj are — they’re very goal-oriented people, and that’s great for them in their career. All the power to them. But sometimes it does feel like they… look at this pregnancy and this baby as just, like, the next thing to check off on their list of accomplishments. That’s cynical. I hope you’re just being a little hyperbolic. I love molly and tj. You know that. And I know how badly they want this baby. It’s just they — they both get so focused on the practicalities of this pregnancy, and they’re missing out on the beautiful process of just absolutely falling in love with this baby as much as I am. You love your father. You don’t want anything to happen to him, just like billions of other sons and daughters all over this planet. Yeah, but I’m in a position to protect sonny, to put his welfare ahead of my badge. But, dante, you had one thought. I know you. You’re not gonna allow one thought to influence you or affect your work. We both know that life can get pretty messy and ambiguous when family is involved. And you have never compromised yourself for sonny. In fact, you had him arrested when he put cyrus renault in the hospital. I wish I could be as sure as you are. I mean, I used to be. I-I thought I could be both a good son and a good cop. And you’ve done that. Have I, though? Sam, sonny runs a criminal enterprise. I know it. You know it. Everybody knows it. My job is to stop him. So why haven’t I? I need to call your pharmacist. You need to — listen! You’re not calling my pharmacist. Give me my pills. Not until you answer a question. When was the last time you took your medication? What is this? Because I didn’t agree with your custody arrangement, now you’re accusing me of not taking medication? I’m not judging you. I’m not judging you. I’m just trying to help you, sonny. Something is so wrong. You remember the last time you went off your meds? I’m fine. You’re not fine! Yeah, I’m fine. Is everything okay? Look at me. Look at me. Hold on. It is common for people dealing with bipolar to go off their medication. Okay, I’m not judging you. Just tell me, and I can help you. Do you really think I’d risk everything by not taking my medication? Do you think that little of me, carly?


Drew may be a very, very tenacious businessman. But, congressman, he’s also a decorated navy seal. And he’s known for his philanthropy and leadership at aurora, and he’s very committed to the city of port charles. Hmm. I can say truthfully that drew can be tough but fair. Not so different from you, congressman. Well, um… I’ll have to see some actual concept sketches and specs. But if the numbers check out and you can make this a reality, well, then you got yourself a deal. Excellent. Thank you so much, congressman. Sure.

[ Sighs ] It’s gonna be tough to wangle this through the house, you know, and I expect a little more than a park bench with my name on it. How about the mcconkey esplanade? Well, that’ll do. Of course, I’ll be long gone before this thing is finished, but you gotta promise you’ll have my wife front and center for the dedication. And you gotta let her cut the ribbon ’cause hazel does love a good photo op. Absolutely. You can count on that, congressman. You and I both know that molly and tj want and already love this baby. But maybe their misguided and annoying attempts to contribute to your pregnancy may be their awkward way of trying to just connect with you and be a part of it.

[ Scoffs ] By coming at me like — like I’m some clueless, irresponsible incubator? Stop. Stop. I want to ask you something, and it’s important to me that you answer it honestly. Okay. What? Do you think you’re starting to think of this baby as more yours than your sister’s? Okay, I did not get into pre-med because of dex, and I’m not thinking about getting out of it because we broke up. Trina: But he is a factor. Yes, but not because I was thinking dex is a criminal, and I need to be able to stitch him up in case he gets shot again. I guess it’s that dex and i are close in age, but we’re worlds apart in life experience. I mean, he’s already served in the military. That really matters. And it seemed to me that becoming a doctor would also really matter, and it would. But just because I have the grades to get into medical school doesn’t mean that it’s the right fit. I would be taking a spot from someone who really does have the passion and who very well could make a much better doctor. And I think I owe it to them, and to me, to figure out where I would do the most good and what I actually want to pursue. Well, look… whatever you decide, I’ll be here for you. Same. We’re in this together. I know. And while you’re trying to figure things out, admit that part of the future that you’re struggling with is about dex. You’re still in love with him, aren’t you? Why can’t you admit that you don’t want you and dex to be over? I think that you are being hard on yourself. Because I know how you value the law. And I know how you always walk that line. You’re a good cop, dante. Gotta give yourself a break. Mm-hmm. I think maybe I just have to face reality, you know? I have gone easy on my father because I love him and my siblings. And that right there is a conflict of interest. If I’m not willing to enforce the law, I have no business being a cop. Let’s just go to your doctor and get your blood drawn. Maybe you just need your dosage adjusted. No, I don’t need my dosage adjusted! Come on, get out, carly! No. I don’t want — please listen to me! I’ve listened long enough. You have to understand how serious this is, sonny. You gotta go!

[ Sighs ] There’s nothing wrong with me. No. But you do look furious. And you have every right. Carly is being unreasonable. Oh, my god.

[ Sighs ] Carly can go to hell.

Hit me again, please. And none of this Namby Pamby stuff this time. I want four olives, extra, extra dirty. Oh, you look terrible. Ugh, so do you. Another martini, please! Why so miserable? All this because Eric cut off your cash flow? Oh, it’s not that. Not just that.

My heart is shattered. What happened?

I got a Dear John letter. Oh, a Dear Leo letter. From Dimitri. I’ve been dumped. No, no. Uh, you’re, you’re sure? It was from him. It was in his handwriting. And he used a pet name for himself that only Gweny and I know.

Leo, I’m sorry. You should be. This is all your fault.

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

How is this my fault? The best damn lawyer in Salem? That is a laugh. I sent Dimitri to you for help, and instead, he ends up in the Super Slammer. Where he fell in love! Can you believe that? My Romeo tosses me aside to be with some big, stinky convict who probably makes license plates and eats paste.

Waiter, please, another martini. I’m all alone. I’m destitute. You are not destitute. You have a job. Do you know how much journalism pays? Barely enough to cover my office attire, let alone my out on the town attire. Not like I’ll be going out on the town ever again. I may as well don grey sweatpants with the elastic band and pockets, sneak into my unpaid storage unit, curl up into a ball on my my chaise with the peacock stuff on it and die denied come on roman i know that you were holding a grudge against me for all the crap that i’ve pulled in the past but look hey it’s got nothing to do with my personal feelings okay it’s just you’re unemployed no income take the help wanted sign out of the window

you want me to hire you you saw what i did with the bistro I did the same thing for the pub. Not to mention your coffee is weak, your staff is slow, and you’re obviously shorthanded. Come on. I will whip this place into shape in a heartbeat.

Well, I do like the irony. Okay, Ava, I’ll tell you what, you can start. Tomorrow morning, you got one week to convince me this is a good idea. Deal. Deal. Well, I’m certainly optimistic. You and the baby staff really helped me put my past behind me. So you feel strong and in control mentally? Yeah, I do. But what, what’s with all the questions right, right now?

Just concerned. You know, I care about you, right? Ashley John was asking me about, um, my time at Bayview not too long ago. If my treatment there really did help me get over my past. Is that right? Yeah. Is everything okay with him? It will be. Yeah, it will. Hey. Hey, sorry I was held up. Yeah, no problem. Hey, Marlena.

Hi, Ava. Good to see you. You too. Well, if you’ll excuse me. Nice to see you. You too.

Okay, so, what did Roman say? Did you get the room? He won’t rent to me without a job. So I work at the pub now. That’s great. Short commute. Yes, and it’s going to save on gas. I guess we’re gonna be neighbors now. I guess so. As long as we don’t get busted for breaking into the bistro. That’s not gonna happen.

I’m running late for my dinner date, so I’m heading out. See you in the morning. Actually, I need you to stay. As much as I missed your sparkling personality while you were gone, my days of working till midnight ended last century. Don’t worry, I’ll make sure you get your overtime, Rita. You’ll be home by 11, 11.

30 latest. I thought your father was a hard ass. So just go ahead and order us dinner, alright? Whatever you like. Gee, thanks. And I will have my usual. Right, stuffed shirt. I mean stuffed shells. Son of a beehive.

Well, you know how I love secrets, so Spill. EJ knew all about the drugs being run in and out of the bistro. Are you serious? As a heart attack. I went to our S. O. B. of D. A. brother a little while back when Clyde was really putting the squeeze on me. Begged him for help. He would not lift a finger to help me get out of it.

He’s just covering his ass as always. Exactly. But what was the one way he didn’t cover his ass? Nicole. Exactly. Can you imagine how furious Nicole would be if she found out EJ could have prevented Holly’s O. D.? Are you suggesting that I blackmail him? Your words, not mine. But think about it, Kristen, if EJ had a choice between his cushy CEO job and Nicole Okay, he’s a businessman.

He’s gonna choose DiMera. Wrong. EJ loves Nicole devotedly, passionately, and I’m willing to bet at this stage in his life. He values his marriage more than money and or power. So yeah. EJ will do anything and everything to prevent Nicole from slipping through his fingers. Sloane, it’s not what goes to me. I gotta talk about this tonight.

Call me back. Hey, how’s Jude doing? It’s good. Not a peep. I’m just happy I got to see him. Yeah, thank you. But, um, why did you bring him here? Um Eric, is everything okay?

So far, so good. Yeah, we got lucky with that alarm code. Stevan should have changed that. Yeah, he’s pretty careless. Say stupid. You’re going to take the kitchen and the office. I’m going to take the stock room and the freezer. Just like we planned. Okay, got it. How long do you think we have? Uh, well, the restaurant doesn’t open until four.

Uh, so no staff should be here for another three hours. Good. Let’s do it. Okay.

Leo, if wardrobe ranks higher than food and housing in your budget, well, priorities are out of whack. Hmm. FYI, Miss Sensitivity, I am way more upset about losing Dimitri than I am about being broke.

For months, I stood by my man. I waited patiently. I was faithful. And you’ve never been faithful before? Have you met me? I didn’t even know that side of me existed. And this, this is what I get for being honorable, for doing the right thing. But I guess I didn’t completely do the right thing. I did break my best friend’s heart by hopping into bed with her fiancĂ© slash husband.

I suppose I could have inferred from that experience that Dimitri might turn out to be a cheating pile of scum. Oh, I guess I was just blinded by young love. Young love? Uh, no, don’t do that. Okay? Young ish love. No more paramour for this schlamazel. Huh. Go on.

Everything’s fine, it’s just I don’t know, I got stuff.

Eric, hey. You can talk to me. I know you better than most people.

This one and I got in a fight.

She walked out. What was the fight about?

She said she never feels good enough for me.

Sound familiar? Kinda. Nicole, I’m sorry if I ever made you feel You know, Eric, Eric, please. Don’t. I really cherished our time together, and I don’t want to look back. We’ve moved on, and I And I’m sure you as well will work things out. Yeah. But for the sake of harmony, In both our homes, I

Maybe it’s not a good idea that we work together.

Dinner’s on its way. Oh, good. I’m famished. I just sent you an email detailing all the information I need from Titan, spreadsheets, slide presentation, the full monthly. Got it. But before I dive in, might I ask you a question? Ask away. What in God’s name are you up to, young man?

So, I’m not putting all of my eggs in the blackmail basket. I’m also milking my connections with the board. Thank you. So am I. I submitted a proposal for a college scholarship in Lee’s name. Look at you. Smart move. Okay, so we know. We know that Shin has always preferred me over EJ, right? But there’s also no way that Shin is going to put me as CEO with a felony conviction.

So in the eyes of the board right now, EJ is their only option. But you and I are going to convince them that they’re wrong. You do spend a lot more than you can chew. Oh, District Attorney and then running the company. Uh, shouldn’t you bring that up to the board? As a, uh, potential conflict of interest?

It’s a very good idea and I thought about that, but The board loves having the Salem DA on their payroll. Ah, the ego, ego maniac, right? I mean, he thinks he can have it all. And that right there, that’s going to be EJ’s downfall. Because when we’re done, if we get what we want, he’s going to be left with nothing.

Oh, baby. Oh, baby. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.

Well, Anne, good to see you. Hi. Having dinner? Uh, no, no, I’m, I’m just, uh, waiting for John to finish up a meeting at Black Patch, and then we’re going over to Maggie’s. Okay. Well, can I get you something while you wait? Coffee? Cappuccino? A glass of pinot? You got it. Everything okay? Oh, I’ve got a lot on my mind.

Okay. Well, you don’t want, you just ordered a drink that makes me a bartender and part of a bartender’s job description is to listen to his patron’s problem. Right. Well, I’m a little worried about Eric and Sloan. So am I. But this, uh, Seems like something more than that. Am I right?

Now, I want to make one thing very clear. I will not be your puppet, Stefan. When Gabby is released from prison, she’s not forming her way back into DiMera like she did before. Okay, you have my word. I will tell Gabby to stand down. But Gabby’s got to be out of prison first. Otherwise, our agreement Fine. I got it the first ten times you told me.

And I am convinced the way to get her out is to prove that she didn’t kill Lee. Of course, of course. We’ve tried that and we’ve come up with nothing every single time. Lee named Gabby as his killer on his deathbed. She was found next to the corpse with a freaking bloody knife in her hand. But you know what?

No one witnessed the actual stabbing. And yes, the police investigated, but the fact that there were two murders in that apartment in such a short time is too much a coincidence, if you ask me. I agree, I agree, except they haven’t realized that yet. Well, maybe they didn’t look hard enough. I’m gonna talk to my old friend Ava and see if she knows anything about this.

Maybe she’ll share something with me that she didn’t tell the investigators. Maybe, but, uh, what if she doesn’t? Oh, sweetheart. If I can’t prove that Gabby didn’t kill me, then I will just come up with another angle. You gotta trust me. I always have a guard up my sleeve. Mm. What, what am I, twelve? I didn’t realize I owed you an explanation for my actions, business related or otherwise.

Too bad I didn’t know you when you were 12. I’d have taught you some manners, made sure you turned out a little more reasonable. I have no doubt you would have, Rita. And don’t take this the wrong way, D. A. DiMera, but maybe you should wait for the board to vote you in as permanent CEO before you start exploring your imperial ambitions.

Strike while the iron’s hot, Rita. Titan’s never been weaker. Victor is deceased, Alex is a novice, and Maggie is no spring chicken. Age is just a number, my friend. And Titan’s number is up. And I am going to bring it to its knees. Success comes to those who don’t wait.

So you don’t think we should work together? Because it’s slow? It’s more than that, Eric. I mean, Ichi just called me and asked me how my day was. And I didn’t even tell him we’re working together because I know he wouldn’t like it. Yeah, so I wouldn’t like it either. Assuming I never have the chance to tell her.

Here, use this. You know what? The bastard wasn’t good enough for you anyway. No, no, no, no, no, no. Don’t you dare try and butter me up and flatter me, Stephen Peterson. My man dumped me. You went back on your promise to pay me to keep my mouth shut. Absolutely. Uh, hello. I paid you as long as I could. I told you not to come over last night.

I tried warning you, but you bulldozed your way in there like a mad woman on a mission. A suicide mission. I don’t believe it. Eric already knew I was paying your room. There’s nothing I could have done that would have stopped him from cutting you off. Except maybe wisen up. How could you have been so careless to let him see your bills?

Come on. I didn’t let him do anything, okay? He opened my statement. Honestly, I wish there was something I could do to help you out, but God, the cash cow has run dry. Yeah, as has my glass waiter, please. Hmm. Leo, You backed my cover story with Eric. And for that I’m grateful. But you also promised me that you wouldn’t tell him the truth about Jude.

I hope you haven’t changed your mind about that.

Alright, here you are. Thank you. Okay, I am ready to listen. Alright. Well, I am, um, I am worried about more than Eric and Sloane. I’m, um, worried about John. He’s been going through a lot lately. I got that impression.

You know, John always said that his life began when we met that day in the hospital. When our hands touched. He had no idea who he was. And I believe that’s true. Yes, but he, he’d had a life before that. And we uncovered parts of it together. We, we found his long lost father. That was a joy. But there was, there was so much missing for him.

So many memories that he didn’t have. But I tried. I’d, uh, try to help him uncover those, but I just didn’t have a lot of luck. That is one of my very great regrets.

Oh, the meeting’s over. I have to go.

Thank you for this. And for listening. Marlena. Let me take some of that word off your plate, okay? You focus on John. I’ll keep an eye on Eric. One way or another, our son is gonna get through this. He’s a survivor. He is a survivor. Thank you, Roman. Please, you take care. You too. Okay.

Listen, Sloane is a smart cookie, and she loves you. You will hear from her soon, I’m sure. Yeah, I suppose. Okay, but if working together is going to cause friction between the two of you, I understand, and maybe we just shouldn’t do it. No, no, no, it’s not going to be a problem, because I won’t let it be. I kind of need the job.

Yeah, me too. Alright, so then we’re cool? Yeah, yeah, we’re cool. Great, then let’s get to it, right? Where do we start? Well, you know, I work to help the homeless at St. Luke’s and kind of have a few ideas. Oh, and yeah, you ran the Horton Center. You volunteered there. Believe me, I remember. Oh, that Chad. He must know what he’s doing pairing us together.

No, I haven’t changed my mind, Sloan. I don’t want to hurt Eric or Jude. I wouldn’t mind strangling you right now. Huh. I just need to make sure that we have an understanding. I won’t tell anyone you blackmailed me if you don’t tell anyone that Jude is Nicole’s baby.

That’s it? That’s the best you’ve got. Before it was, I don’t tell. You cover my expenses. Now it’s, I don’t tell and I get dibbly butt kiss. You get to maintain your reputation as a stand up guy. That’s not my reputation. Who cares, you know what? I am a shell of my former self anyway. In the words of music legend Linda Ronstadt,

I forget the lyrics of the song I’m thinking of, but it’s something about being sad, And lonely, and pitiful, and miserable. And loveless.

Make sure I get the last ten years of Titan’s financial records. Chart the profit and loss, especially since Victor’s passing. I know, this ain’t my first rodeo. So, you want to take over Titan and dethrone the mayor who appointed you as DA and run day to day operations at DiMera? Why stop there? Why not buy a major league ball team?

Show up Musk and Bezos by colonizing the moon. Oh, hilarious as always. But I get your point, Rita. I know that deep down you’re only looking out for me. Just like you did my father for so many, many years. I do miss that old goat. Don’t we all? I really appreciate you. And, I’m glad you’re here.

Hey, any luck? Nothing. Yeah, nothing in the freezer. Turned it upside down, came up empty. Oh, well I’d warm you up around the clock here. Did you check the kitchen? Yeah, and the office. Top to bottom. What the hell are you two doing?

You know, you really should be thanking me, Leo.

For what? For cutting me off? Dimitri kicking me to the curb? I really wanted to do this as pleasantly as I could because, well, I do appreciate your help and bringing my beautiful baby boy into my life. But face it, you did commit a crime and the criminal penalty for extortion or blackmail is up to four years in federal prison.

Is that so? And what’s the penalty for kidnapping, cheeky baby? The truth is, Leo, it is in both of our best interests to keep our mouths shut. Don’t you agree? I really am sorry about Dimitri, Leo.

Yeah, well, I thought 14 was gonna get me another filthy martini.

Well, I’m ready whenever you are for a repeat of our little strategy meeting, Alex. No, it sounds good. Definitely a plan. All right, I gotta go. Hello, brother. Would you like some candy? Uh, I’ll pass. Although I do hear Alex Kyriakos is very interested in your goodies. Ah, excuse me. The help has been buzzing.

Servants talk, you know. Well, I’m glad I can liven up their tedious worker bee lives. I don’t suppose in between your roles in the hay you’d be interested in getting an actual job? Or are you satisfied living the life of leisure and mischief making? Huh. Huh. Boy, it’s bad enough that you took back half the family assets from Stefan and left me and Chad and Tony out in the cold, and now you want to kick me off the dole too?

Just thought you might be bored, eating candy all day and stirring up trouble. Well, you are right about one thing, brother. I do love keeping busy. And the truth is, I have a few irons in the fire. Just don’t get burned. Oh, don’t you worry, AJ. Like father, I will always rise from the ashes. Cheers.

Okay, if you two aren’t going to tell me what you’re doing busting into my restaurant, you can tell the police. I am the police. Really? Is breaking and entering part of your academy training now? It’s not what you think, Stefan. I don’t know what to think anymore, Ava. But here’s what I know. An ex mafia princess with a criminal record broke into my establishment, along with a cop who doesn’t have a warrant, obviously, or he would have served me with it.

Okay, you two have left me no other option but to call 911. Okay, stop, stop. We have to tell him. It’s hard to trust the guy who shot me. But yeah, the jig is up. Go ahead, tell him. Clyde called me a few days ago. You heard from Clyde? Yeah. He hasn’t reached out to you? No, for real? He has not. And, damn it, I thought finally, finally we’d be talking.

Free and clear of that son of a bitch. Should’ve known he’d find some way to reel us back in. Yeah, well, or at least me. He threatened to tell everybody that I was part of the drug operation unless I find this little black book that has all his contact information in it. Gil apparently hid it somewhere in the bistro and we’ve looked everywhere and found nothing.

You got any ideas? No. I itemized every single thing in this restaurant before we got ready for the re open. This book is how we find Clyde and take him down. Okay, we’ll see. Is how I want this book out of my restaurant. Yesterday, what can I do to help?

Melinda? You won’t believe this. Dimitri dumped Leo.

He sent him a letter? I mean, how cold is that? That’s not the point. Okay, I’m afraid Leo’s gonna be a loose cannon.

Well, the only saving grace is, Leo has no clue that Jude is really Eric’s biological child.

So, in the police statement, you said that Clyde had Gill stash the drugs in generic tomato cans. Yeah, right. He put it somewhere so it wouldn’t be opened. So, okay, if the drugs were hidden in plain sight, I mean, maybe, maybe the book is too.

The reserve wine. Nobody ever touches it, because it’s so damn pricey. Look, I remember when I first started working here, I was dusting the whole collection, and

I practically sneezed for a week. Look, there was one bottle, there was It’s the Gervon, it’s the Gervon of Petrus. And never this one, it never had any dust on it.

It’s lighter than the rest.

It’s cause it’s empty. Shh. Ah. Where in the name of all that is holy am I going to come up with the cash to support me in the manner to which I have become accustomed? Oh. Hmm.

Oh, it’s a good thing I started writing this before I was drinking. Okay. Organ donation. Nobody’s gonna want a piece of my liver after tonight. No. Rideshare driver. Oh, I have a pitiful sense of direction and I would have to get a car.

E. J. DiMera.

Hmm. I would be going back on my word to Sloan. But, I only promised I wouldn’t tell Eric. But I could go to jail. But, EJ is the DA. I could make sure I got a deal first. Okay, waiter, I’m out of here. Put this on Sloan Peterson’s tab, yeah? Okay. You need a change, little guy? No. Well, I guess he gets just a little cranky when he wakes up.

Yeah, don’t we all? Well, it’s a good thing, otherwise he’d be wide awake all through the wee hours. Hey there, sweet boy. Do you like keeping your daddy up at night? You’re a little night owl, aren’t you? Yeah.

Oh, my God, it’s on bloody fire. Oh, Leo, what the hell do you want? I want to tell you a secret. For a price. Good God, man, you reek. Martinis. Very, very dirty. Four olives. You’re plastered, not to mention unreliable and untrustworthy. Oh, that’s unfair. Okay, I may be inebriated. Intoxabrated. Okay, I’m four sheets to the wind, but But, but, but, but, but In vino veritas.

And I have some veritas for you. Fine, just spill it already. No, no, no, no, no, mister. Not so fast. This is going to cost you. But you’re going to want to pay. Because, the dish that I have for you,

is a doozy. John,

Marlena, thank you for coming. Always good to see you. Is, uh, can I get you anything? Tea? Coffee? No, I’m fine, thanks. No. Okay, then. Um, I wanted you to come over because there was something I want to tell you. Constantine and I are engaged.

Well, that’s delicious. Well, there’s no need to pretend that you’re pleased about it. Um, I assure you the marriage is a name only. Not to be advertised as such, but we are keeping up appearances for immigration’s sake. So, I wanted my circle of family and friends to know the truth. Which is? That Constantine’s visa.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Dramatic music ]

Finn: We should take her to the hospital. She should be on I.V. Fluids.

Deacon: You heard her. She doesn’t wanna go. Look, besides, she’s got her own personal doc looking after her. I mean, isn’t that enough for now?

Finn: Deacon–

Deacon: Look, I know, I get it. I know that you’re worried. I am too. Look at her. I mean, she’s eating that pizza like it’s going out of style. God, I miss that woman.

Sheila: I missed you too.

[ Deacon chuckles ] Both of you. Uh, I heard everything.

Deacon: Are you, uh, eavesdropping?

Sheila: I’m dehydrated. I’m– I’m not deaf. And I really appreciate both of you and your concern.

Finn: We just want you to be okay.

Sheila: I am because I’m home. I’m safe. I’m– I’m with my two favorite guys in the world. Thank you for finding me. For rescuing me because I… I don’t know how much longer I would’ve lasted.

Deacon: Hey, hey, hey. No more of that talk. You’re alive. You’re gonna be your old self in no time and that is the most important thing.

Finn: Deacon’s right. Having you back is everything.

Steffy: Thank you.

Liam: So, how great. They had a table for all three of us.

Steffy: I know. I’m actually surprised ivy wanted me to join. I thought you wanted him all to yourself.

Ivy: Well, they do say three’s a crowd.

Steffy: Right, right.

[ Ivy clears her throat ]

Ivy: So, steffy, have you missed me?

Steffy: Of course, I missed you. And clearly you missed this guy, if that kiss was any indication. So ivy, you have to tell me. Was it worth it?

Ivy: What?

Steffy: Flying all the way from australia just to plant one on this guy?

Liam: Well, this is fun.

Steffy: So, what’s the purpose of your trip? Catching up with old flames?

Ivy: Uh, partly, yes. But I’m also here to visit another very handsome man.

Steffy: Wow, you think you know someone.

Ivy: Oh, well, you do know this one. Actually, very well. It’s your grandfather.

Steffy: Oh.

Ivy: You know, I wanted to see him after his health scare and make sure he was doing better and… god, he looks great.

Steffy: Yeah, he does. And apparently, you think liam looks great, too.

Deacon: That’s gotta be a record. You want me to get you another pizza? Maybe some anchovies or whatever you want? Anything?

Finn: Maybe some fruit instead. It’ll help with her rehydration.

Deacon: Yeah, I got bananas. I got strawberries, watermelon.

Finn: That’d be great. And then some more water, too.

Deacon: Yeah, yeah, I’m on it.

Finn: Let me check your pulse. Um, how are you feeling on a scale of one to ten, physically, mentally, emotionally?

Sheila: Physically, like a five, six. I just feel really weak.

Finn: Okay, well, that’s why we wanted to take you to the hospital, so we could evaluate you.

Sheila: Finn, I appreciate the concern, but I don’t want to be here. I want to be in my little home with deacon because I’m going to get much better faster. Don’t worry.

Deacon: Hey, he’s your son. Of course, he’s going to worry. So am I. Although, I have to say, beautiful, you’re looking a hell of a lot better than when we found you.

Sheila: I’m just so thankful that it’s over.

Finn: What did happen?

Sheila: Sugar happened. Sugar happened. For people who feel limited

Liam: Thank you. This looks lovely. How about we change the subject? Maybe, um, anything.

Ivy: Okay, but before we do, before we do, I just–

Liam: Okay.

Ivy: Look, I know that– I know that it’s been a while since we’ve seen each other. And in some ways, we’ve changed a lot. We’re different people. We all are, but you, liam, you’re still the same beautiful man inside and out that I remember. You’re so kind and caring and sexy as hell. And as far as I’m concerned, I don’t understand why the women in this city aren’t beating down the door of the city’s most eligible bachelor. Because if I lived here, I know I sure would be.

Steffy: Wow.

Sheila: There’s something that I– I just don’t understand.

Deacon: What?

Sheila: How did you and finn know about sugar?

Deacon: I ran into an old friend of yours, lauren fenmore. She told me about sugar, but we can get into specifics of that later.

Finn: How was sugar able to do what she did without anyone knowing?

Deacon: It’s okay, take your time.

Finn: Yeah, I mean, we realize it’s still really fresh.

Sheila: Remember when I told you I was slipping out to see someone from my past?

Deacon: Yeah.

Sheila: Well, it all started with these text messages. I should have just ignored it, but it wouldn’t have stopped her anyway.

Deacon: Her being sugar. That’s who the text messages from?

Sheila: I– I went to meet up with her a couple of times.

Finn: What happened?

Sheila: Nothing. She never showed up. And then weeks later, I’m– I’m running errands and sugar abducted me, took me to that warehouse and chained me up.

Finn: Odd.

Sheila: I’ve never been so afraid in my life. Seeing sugar after all those years and the rage in her eyes and it was all directed at me. She said she’d only gotten out a little while before and– and she had just been waiting for this day, this day that she, she imagined and she planned. And she just– she just wanted– she wanted payback. She wanted payback. Stuck at the dmv,

Ivy: Maybe, maybe I’m being too forward.

Steffy: Hm. Ya think?

Ivy: But I mean, why should I– why should I have to hide my feelings for you? You know, we’ve both changed. We’re both evolved and I’m convinced that we would be good for each other.

Steffy: Oh, okay. Okay. Okay. Yeah. He’s remarkable. He’s amazing. He’s all the things. He’s also my daughter’s father. On that note, we need to go see kelly. She wants to see you. So, if you’ll excuse us, we got to go.

Ivy: You know what? It does. It feels like that time. It was– it was so good to see you.

Liam: It was so good seeing you too and you look so beautiful.

Ivy: Thanks. So you said several times.

Steffy: Okay. On that note, we should…

Liam: Uh, yeah. Okay.

Ivy: Bye. Bye.

Liam: Wow. Bye.

Ivy: Call me, okay?

Liam: Yeah. I– I– I will.

Steffy: Bye. Goodbye. Bye. Ooh. Being subtle is definitely not her strong suit. Oh, neither is mine.

[ Steffy laughs ] Us forrester women. You gotta love it. Hey.

[ Liam chuckles ]

Deacon: Sheila… what exactly did sugar do to you?

[ Sheila grunts ]

[ Sheila pants ]

Sheila: Sugar, you let me go or else.

Sugar: What, sheila? What? Because I’m in control. Now, I’m in charge.

Sheila: But not for long.

Sugar: You’re being so ridiculous, you know that? Nobody knows you’re missing. They’re not even looking for you.

Sheila: They will.

Sugar: By then it’ll be too late. Much too late.

Sheila: What does that mean?

Sugar: I’ve been holding on to this anger for so many years. Livid at the way that you double-crossed me. You were supposed to be my friend. Sheila, my friend. And you tricked me into getting plastic surgery to look like you so I could take the wrap for your crimes. You ruined my life. But that stops– stops today. I’ve been counting down the years, the months, the days to get revenge. That’s all I could think about. Making you pay for all the years I spent in that loony bin when you– you were free living your life in los angeles and genoa city. You didn’t even care about the hell hole that I was in.

Sheila: You were arrested for what you did to lauren fenmore’s son.

Sugar: None of that would have happened if it weren’t for you.

Sheila: What are you planning?

Sugar: It was really quite ingenious because I get to commit crimes looking like you. First place I’m going to strike is steffy forrester’s beach house. Steffy’s gonna be your first victim.

Sheila: No! I tried to stop her. I tried to stop sugar from hurting steffy and– and the children. Keep them protected from that mad woman, but… she just, she was so obsessed with getting back at me and she didn’t care what she had to do. She was… she was just determined to make me pay for it. She almost got away with it too.

Deacon: It’s okay.

Sheila: She almost did, though.

Deacon: It’s okay. Schwarzkopf

[ Steffy chuckles ]

Steffy: Oh, okay, bye. That was becky. She’s dropping off kelly soon.

Liam: Okay, great.

Steffy: You should have heard kelly in the background. She is really excited to see you.

Liam: Aw. Well, not as excited as I am to see her.

Steffy: Hey, I just want to say, um, thank you. Thank you for spending time with kelly. You really are an incredible father. You’re so attentive and loving. And I know you’re the same way with beth.

Liam: Well, shucks. Between you and ivy, my ego’s about to pop.

[ Steffy chuckles ]

Steffy: Okay, only I am not trying to make a play for you.

Liam: Fair.

Steffy: So do you want to see her again? Okay, I will say this. I do agree with everything she said about you. Like I said, you are incredible.

Liam: Well, don’t let finn hear you saying that. Speaking of which, is he, um, is he going to come home and be upset that I’m sitting here talking to you? I don’t know.

Steffy: No, he’ll be totally okay with you seeing kelly.

Liam: Okay, okay. Yo, what was that look?

Steffy: Oh, ah, nothing. It’s, um… finn was, uh, he was a little quiet this morning and last night and I just, I had a little weird feeling and when I get like that, it’s, it’s always about sheila. But this time, I know it’s not. Because she’s gone. She’s out of our lives forever.

Sheila: It was– it was diabolical what– what she was planning. It was so cruel.

Sugar: See, I’m going to strike where it hurts the most. Steffy and those brats of hers. Everyone’s going to think that you killed your son’s wife, the mother of your grandson.

Sheila: ‘Cause I would never hurt them. You can’T.

Sugar: Oh, yeah, but I can. And when I’m done, they’re going to lock you up and they’re going to throw away the key. Your precious son. He’s not going to want anything to do with you ever again. You’re going to get what you deserve.

Sheila: You may look like me, but you don’t sound like me. Really?

[ Sugar clears her throat ]

[ Imitating sheila ] How about now?

[ Sheila gasps ]

Sheila: Sugar. Just listen to me. Do whatever you want to me. You can torture me, you can kill me. I– I– I don’t care. But don’t harm steffy and those precious children. Please, don’t hurt them.

Sugar: Tonight, steffy forrester dies. And you spend the rest of your miserable life behind bars.

Sheila: No!

[ Sugar grunts ] No! No! Sugar, no! No! Don’t go! Don’t hurt them! Don’t! Don’t hurt steffy! No! No! Help! Help me! No! No! Help!

Finn: Everything that you did to try and protect steffy and how hard you fought–

Sheila: Of course, I tried to protect steffy. I– I love you, I love steffy, I love the children more than I love myself.

Deacon: That’s never been more obvious, babe.

Sheila: You’re sure? That steffy and hayes are all right? You told me they were, but I, I…

Finn: Look, everybody’s fine. Okay, they’re fine, and– and we’ll– we’ll explain that– that later. Okay, but right now, we need to take care of you, okay? You– you have been through the unthinkable. You’ve been terrorized and– and brutalized by this woman, and yet… through it all, your love for me and– and my wife and my kids, it shows–

Sheila: I would do anything to protect you, steffy and those children, son. I would do anything.

Finn: I believe you, mom.

Sheila: Oh.

Finn: I believe you.

[ Dramatic music ]

Finn: Whoa. Hey, mom? Mom, stay with us. Mom, stay with us.

Deacon: I’m so happy to see you. There it is. There’s that smile. Baby, I knew you were alive. Everyone thought I was crazy, but I knew you were alive and it’s because of those nine toes. Oh, sheila. Sheila, I love you so much. I love you, baby girl.

Ridge: And that’s it for sales. In other news, I was tying my shoe this morning and both my legs fell off. The weirdest thing. Hi.

Steffy: Hi, um–

Ridge: Where were you? You’ve been like this the whole meeting.

Steffy: Sorry. I’m sorry. It’S…

Ridge: What’s going on?

Steffy: It’s nothing. I just, um… I called finn and I just… I haven’t heard back from him.

Ivy: Well, I hope I didn’t overstep by kissing you like that.

[ Liam chuckling ]

Liam: Beautiful, talented, accomplished woman takes my face into her hands. No, I don’t think overstepping is the word I would use.

Ivy: Oh, my god, it’s so nice seeing you, liam.

Liam: It’s been too long.

Ivy: You haven’t aged a bit.

[ Both laughing ] In fact, maybe even better looking than I remembered.

Ivy: Full disclosure, I have been thinking about doing that for some time now.

Liam: Really? Uh, well, uh, it makes sense. I suppose kissing me over a video conference call would have been quite a challenge.

Ivy: Yes. And especially because you were married. You were off the market, remember?

Liam: Yeah. That too.

Ivy: But now that you’re not, I mean… I mean, why do you think I really extended my layover in l .A.?

Liam: Wait, no, I thought you… you came to see your uncle eric.

Ivy: Oh, yeah. No, I did, but, you know, also to, um… to have lunch with you and just catch up a bit, hear how life’s been treating you.

Liam: Oh, boy. Uh, how much time do you have?

Ivy: I’ve got all the time you need. You know… I know it was ages ago, liam, but… I still appreciate all of the wonderful times that we shared.

Ridge: So something still feels off with finn?

Steffy: Yeah, yeah, I just feel a little on edge. Deacon keeps dredging up everything that happened the night sheila died, and he’s just putting these crazy theories into finn’s head.

Ridge: Why does finn listen to him? Deacon is an idiot. And your husband’s a doctor. He’s probably saving somebody right now.

[ Steffy sighs ]

Finn: Okay. Easy does it.

[ Sheila panting ]

Finn: We need to get her to a hospital, deacon. She’s dehydrated. Here. Try to give her more of this. All right? Take it easy. Just small sips.

Deacon: Okay, that’s good, that’s good, that’s good. All right. Sheila, can you tell us what happened? Choose advil liqui-gels for faster, stronger

Liam: So that’s, uh, that’s kelly, she’s the oldest. And that is beth.

Ivy: Oh, my– they have grown up so much. They’re so adorable.

Liam: It happens fast. It’s crazy.

Ivy: Wow. Oh, liam, I just– I bet you’re the cutest dad.

Liam: Well, I, you know, mostly humiliate them, but they are my two favorite people on the planet, so that tracks.

Ivy: I can really hear how proud you are of your girls. It’s so sweet.

Liam: We’ve all done a pretty good job with the, you know, the co-parenting and splitting time between households. Obviously, the plan was not to be split from both their mothers, but…

Ivy: Right, I mean, it happens.

Liam: No, it absolutely happens, and the kids are handling it better than I am. It’s just, uh… you know, hope and I worked on our marriage for a long time, only to have it implode. And then steffy is now happily married to finn, and they’ve got a kid together. Oh, by the way, they live in my old place on the cliff.

Ivy: No.

Liam: Yeah.

Ivy: Oh, I love that house.

Liam: I know.

Ivy: Wow, I often think about that new year’s eve we spent there together. Do you remember?

Liam: Yeah, that was a fun night.

Ivy: The goofy hats. The fireworks on the ocean. Oh, so special. We had a lot of fun nights together, you and me.

Liam: Yeah, we did.

Ivy: It’s funny, in some ways it feels so long ago, doesn’t it? Just thinking about all the twists and turns it took to get us to this point.

Liam: Yeah.

Ivy: Tell me what it’s been like for you, liam.

Liam: Um, I mean, you kind of know. It’S… I just ended two major relationships. I, uh… I lost my way, and then I lost– yeah.

Ivy: It was their loss, too. Liam, I hope you know what an extraordinary man you are. There’s a lot of people out here who really love you.

Ridge: Sheila’s gone. Finn understands that, right?

Steffy: Look, I know that she’s gone. But I still feel her, okay? I feel her around me. It’s like, I don’t know, she’s like in the air or something, and it makes me feel uneasy. It’s a creepy feeling.

Ridge: Look at me, look at me. She’s not in the air. She’s nowhere here. She’s– she’s gone. She’ll be gone out of your life, forever.

Finn: Deacon, we need to get her out of here.

Deacon: We need to get the chain off first. Move her to this side, okay? I need to whack this thing. Ready?

Finn: Yeah.

[ Deacon grunts ]

Deacon: This isn’t gonna work. Damn it. Finn, I’m gonna need something smaller, thinner. What? Oh, this is perfect. Okay. All right, you ready?

[ Chain grinding ]

[ Deacon grunts ] Lord, I could use a little help here. Thanks. What do you say, babe? You ready to go home? It was one thing when my mom got alzheimer’s,

Ivy: I– I hope you know how incredible you are, liam. I mean, come on, how many men would marry a girl to stop her from getting deported?

Liam: You know, in retrospect, I think that was illegal.

Ivy: Oh, no, it was very illegal, but that’s not the point. The point is, that was such an act of kindness. You didn’t have to do that, but you did it anyway. You made such an impact on my life, liam. From our new year’s kiss, to pulling me out of the river in paris. Do you remember that?

Liam: Yeah, wow.

Ivy: Such a wild ride.

Liam: We sure did.

Ivy: I know it got messy, and maybe there are some things that you would like to take back, and maybe there are some things that I would too. And, god, I’m sure hope and steffy would say the exact same thing, but they were lucky. They were lucky to be loved by you, liam. Don’t doubt yourself. Any woman would be blessed to have you.

Steffy: You’re right, finn is a rational person. I mean, he’s built his whole career on logic and science. Like, he knows sheila’s dead, but deacon keeps messing with him.

Ridge: Well, he should block him on his phone.

Steffy: I wish he would do that. God, how many times does she interfere in our marriage? Thank god, she’s not alive.

Ridge: Yeah, well, even from the dead, she’s interfering, so.

Steffy: Yeah, but she–

[ Steffy sighs ] I have pleaded to deacon. I told him to leave finn alone.

Ridge: The guy doesn’t listen, you know he doesn’T.

Steffy: You know what I’m gonna do? I’m gonna go there.

Ridge: Go where? Il giardino?

Steffy: Yeah. I’m gonna tell him to stop with this crazy theory that sheila carter is alive. Ridiculous.

Finn: Pupils are slightly dilated. She’s malnourished. We’re gonna need to get her some real nutrients. We’re lucky she survived.

Deacon: Sheila, who did this to you? Think back, who the hell brought you here, put you in those damn chains? Was it somebody from your past? Was it someone named sugar?

[ Sheila panting ]

Finn: Is that right? It was sugar.

Sheila: Su– su–

Deacon: What are you trying to say?

Sheila: Su– sug– sug– sugar!

Deacon: Okay. Okay.

Sheila: It was sugar!

Deacon: Calm down. It’s okay. It’s okay. Schwarzkopf

Ivy: It’s true, you know, I– I often wonder what my life would be like if I hadn’t left california.

Liam: Well, now’s your chance to find out.

[ Ivy chuckles ]

Ivy: If I didn’t have to catch a flight, I could think of a million things I’d like to do with you. Uh, wow, I did not mean for it to sound like that.

Liam: Oh, yeah, no, I know that, yeah, you were just, I, um… listen, we had all varieties of fun, so–

Ivy: We did, we did. It’s because you’re very fun to hang out with.

Liam: So are you.

Ivy: And not just because you’re easy on the eyes.

Liam: You understand that the view from where I’m sitting is pretty spectacular as well, right?

Ivy: Well, I’m glad you think so.

Liam: Always was. It was so many years ago.

Ivy: I know. I know, we were practically kids. Oh, there’s still some of my favorite memories, though. I can still see everything so clearly. I hope you haven’t forgotten.

I’ll never forget

when we first met

wasn’t so long ago

it had gotten late

and I was lost

and you said not to cry

you gave me that face

who’s that man?

Believe in me

I’m a real good guy

start again

just hold your breath

and count to ten

today’s the day

I finally found the one

to follow me home

’cause today’s the day

I finally found the one

I finally, finally found

to follow me home

Ivy: So young and carefree. You know… liam… I’ve always had a little piece of you in my heart.

Server: Hey. How’s it going?

Steffy: Have you seen deacon?

Server: No, I haven’t, actually.

Steffy: It’s fine, I’ll catch him later.

Server: Okay. Take care.

Ivy: Well, I…

[ Ivy chuckles ] I think I’ve given you enough to think about for one day.

[ Liam chuckles ] But I mean it, liam. Any woman would be lucky to have you. Including me.

Steffy: My cousin comes to town and doesn’t even tell me? Did you come all this way just to plant a big one on liam? Cute.

Deacon: Sugar. You said sugar.

Finn: What– what about her?

Deacon: Sugar kidnapped you. She brought you here?

Finn: What did she do to you?

Deacon: Sheila, how did she find you?

Sheila: No… no…

Deacon: Was she alone? Did she have somebody help her?

Sheila: No, no…

Deacon: Sheila, what is it? You don’t have to be afraid.

Sheila: S– st– steffy.

Finn: Steffy?

[ Indistinct ]

[ Sheila sobbing ] What about my wife?

Sheila: House… your house.

Deacon: House?

Sheila: Your house.

Finn: My house?

Sheila: Steffy… sug– sugar… hu– hurt… steffy…

[ Sheila stuttering ] Kill!

Deacon: Su– sugar wanted to kill steffy, right?

[ Sheila stuttering ]

Sheila: I’m sorry. I’m– I’m so– I’m sorry. I tried– I tried to stop sugar from hurting steffy. I love you. I love you all so much and I just– I just– I– I couldn’t stop her.

Deacon: Sheila, it’s okay. It’s okay. You don’t have to be afraid.

Finn: Come on. Listen. Listen to me, okay? Hey, hey, no, you don’t need to be upset. You don’t need to be upset. Everybody’s fine.

Sheila: Steffy…

Finn: Yes. Yes, steffy’s fine. You don’t have to worry about me or her or the kids, okay?

Deacon: Sheila, everyone’s okay.

[ Sheila sobbing ]

Sheila: A– alive?

Finn: Yes, steffy’s alive.

Sheila: Oh…

Finn: Yeah.

Sheila: Thank god. I love you so much. I love you all so much.

Finn: Mom. Mom, you’re safe now, okay? And I’m gonna take care of you. You’re gonna be all right, okay? Okay, I thought I lost you. But I didn’T. I thought I was never gonna see you again. But you’re here, mom. You’re here. You’re alive. You’re alive. It’s gonna be okay. You’re here. It’s okay. Hey, hey, it’s all right. It’s all right. It’s okay. It’s all right.

Nikki: Leave me alone!

Jack: Let me in, nikki. You’re not okay. None of this is okay.

Nikki: Pretend you didn’t see me.

Jack: No, I saw you.

Nikki: Well, I don’t want to see you, so get out of here.

Jack: I am not going anywhere. I am your sponsor, remember? A job you asked me to do.

Nikki: I am fine. And you’re fired.

Jack: No, you can fire me once you’re sober. Let me in. Come on. You can’t even stand up here. Don’t make me push the door in.

[ Nikki grunts ]

Nikki: Fine. You asked for it.

Jack: My god. What happened here?

Nikki: Oh, what’s the matter, jack? You were just trying to beat my door down a second ago, and now you’re running scared?

Jack: Give me that. Give me that.

Nikki: Hey– well, gee, thanks. What a gentleman. Make mine a double, will ya?

Jack: This is over.

Nikki: Oh, no, it is not. You are not the boss of me. I am the boss of me. And I want a drink, so either pour or get out of here.

Jack: You have had plenty to drink. I’m not going anywhere until I sober you up and take you to a meeting. We can still make the late night meeting.

Nikki: I’m sick of meetings. All those sad sacks. My name is nikki and I’m an alcoholic. God, how many times have I said that in depressing church basements? And where has it gotten me? Huh? Right here. Well, I’m done. It doesn’t work.

Jack: No, it works if you work it–

Nikki: Oh, shut up. I’m not going to a meeting and I’m not going to get sober.

Jack: Nikki.

Nikki: No. Get away.

Jack: Nikki, stop.

[ Nikki pants ]

Nikki: I can’t do it, jack. Not this time. I give up.

Jack: No. No, you are not giving up. Not on my watch.

Nikki: Hey, turn those lights back down. You’re ruining my mood lighting.

Jack: This room is a mess. You are a mess. Your breath reeks of alcohol. It’s oozing out of your pores. Look at yourself.

Nikki: Wow, that’s your idea of a pep talk? Cuz it stinks. I know what I look like. I know what all this looks like, and it’s what it is. It’s a bender. And you’re not invited.

Jack: Could you please send up two bottles– make it four bottles of water, a pot of coffee and an omelet, some sourdough toast and potatoes. And put a rush on it, please. I’ll pay for it.

Nikki: I sure hope that’s for you because that sounds disgusting.

Jack: Well, hopefully, it’ll sober you up.

Nikki: That’s so not true, jack. I mean, why does everybody think that? It just makes you wide awake, drunk with a sick stomach.

Jack: We’ll see who’s right when you eat. Lauren is looking for you. Victor is looking for you. You’re ignored at all my calls.

Nikki: Uh-huh, uh-huh. I got the messages.

Jack: Nikki, talk to me. How did you end up here like this?

Nikki: Well, same way I always do. I am me.

Jack: No, I don’t understand. The whole nightmare with jordan is over. Wait, maybe you haven’t heard. Cole and victoria found claire. She’s okay.

Nikki: Yeah, I know. I got the texts. I– I’m glad that she’s safe. Let’s do a toast to claire.

Jack: Yeah, thank you. Claire is okay. Harrison is home. Jordan is dead. Now, you can stop drinking.

Nikki: None of that changes anything for me.

Jack: Was this just a celebration? Is that what it is? An excuse to get hammered again?

Nikki: I don’t need an excuse.

Jack: Why didn’t you call me when you first got the urge to pick up a bottle again?

Nikki: There’s no point. I mean, it would have just been a huge waste of time for you, just like now is. Don’t you get it? I’m a lost cause. (Vo) you might be used to living with your albuterol asthma

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Jack: Nikki.

Nikki: Hey.

Jack: Listen to me. You are not a lost cause. That is the booze talking. I’m not going to listen to it and neither should you.

Nikki: Get off of me!

Jack: They’re going to bring up food soon. Why don’t you go splash your face with water?

Nikki: Oh. Yeah, you’d like that. I know what you’re doing. You want me to take a good hard look in the bathroom mirror and recognize that I have hit rock bottom and need to pull myself up and all that, but you don’t understand. It is too late. I’ve been here so many times and here I am again.

Jack: You know what? I don’t want to hear this anymore. I don’t know who you see in the mirror. I see a strong, compassionate woman who has been tortured for months by jordan. It has been harrowing, yes, but I know one thing about you. You always come out on the other side of these battles stronger and better.

Nikki: Well, not this time. My family hates me. I’ve let them all down.

Jack: Where is this coming from? Your family could not be more supportive. They’re probably worried sick about you right now, and where you are. In fact, we should give them a call.

Nikki: What? No! No, don’t you dare, jack! Don’t you do that!

Jack: Stop!

Nikki: I had a dream. Do you hear me? I had a dream and I– I saw the future. My whole family hates me and they’re– they’re sick of me and my crap choices, and I made those even when I was sober, and they finally had enough. I– I ruined everything, so the least I can do is let them move on without me, right?

Jack: Nikki, it’s a dream. It’s a vodka-soaked nightmare. I know it feels real sometimes. It’s not. It is your fears and you can’t put any stock in it.

Nikki: You’re right. There is only one thing I can count on and I can’t let it down. I can’t hurt it. I can’t break its heart and it can’t break mine. Will you stop it?

Jack: It will break your heart every time, nikki. It will. That dream was not telling you the future. That dream was warning you what would happen if you don’t stop drinking. All that you could lose, a family you adore, a family that loves you, adores you. They depend on you more than you know. You are the rock of that family and your dear friends count on you as well.

Nikki: My dear friends are gone, jack. Katherine, neil.

Jack: If katherine and neil were here right now, what would they say? They’ve given you some tough love over the years.

Nikki: They’re not here.

Jack: No, I am, and so is lauren, and so is michael, and so many other people who come to you for guidance.

Nikki: Anybody who would count on me now is an idiot. You can tell them I said so.

Jack: No, I’m not going to do that. No, you want to sober up and tell them yourself, knock yourself out, because you and I both know once the vodka’s out of your system, you’re going to think straight again.

Nikki: No, not going to happen.

Jack: I’m not going to let you give up, nikki.

Nikki: Really? What are you going to do to stop me?

Jack: I think we need to talk about rehab.

Nikki: Oh, no, no. No way.

Jack: I know you thought you could handle it.

Nikki: No way. Uh-uh.

Jack: This has progressed, nikki. You need more than me and meetings. You need the constant care and help of professionals in a facility.

Nikki: It’s not going to work, jack. My god, do you know how many times I’ve been down this– well, yeah, you do. Been around for decades. First was my riding accident, then my intervention. I’ve tried everything.

Jack: And they worked.

Nikki: Until they didn’T.

Jack: Nikki, relapse is part of recovery. You know that. You have to let the program work for you again.

Nikki: It won’t work, jack, because I know all the right words to say, okay? I– I can do anything to make people believe I am working the program, but I won’t be. It’s all an act.

Jack: So you fake it ’til you make it.

Nikki: Will you shut up with your stupid sayings? I am trying to be honest here. You have to want to get sober, but I don’T.

Jack: Why not?

Nikki: I’m sorry I let you down. And don’t take it personally. I let everybody down.

Jack: The only important person here is you. Do not let yourself down, nikki. You can do this. I know it seems bleak now. I know it’s scary. I have been here myself. But it can turn around. You know it can turn around.

Nikki: Yeah, let me guess. This too shall pass?

Jack: Yes, and without it being a miracle from heaven.

Nikki: Oh, stop it. Your damn positivity. You can’t turn on a few lights and say that everything is going to be okay and make it so.

Jack: That is not what I expected.

Nikki: You know what I’m doing right now? I am trying to figure out how to get you out of here so I can open another bottle.

Jack: Too bad. I got nothing but time on my hands. I have nowhere I have to go. I’m going to sit here and listen to you until you agree to go to a meeting.

Nikki: Oh, my god. Your ego. I mean, you are so damn smug. You really think that you can fix me? Why don’t you go to an al-anon meeting? I mean, maybe they can knock it into your thick skull that you can’t change anybody, especially me.

Jack: Stop feeling sorry for yourself. Stop thinking you know the future. We are here. This is now. And you can leave those bottles unopened just for tonight. That’s all you have to think about.

Nikki: Ah, there you are.

Jack: Nikki.

Nikki: Come to mama.

[ Nikki sighs ] Damn it.

Jack: Nikki, I know this is terrifying. I know some part wants to just give up and drown yourself. It’s seductive. But it also fools you into believing this is what you want, that this is what you deserve. The booze is telling you you’re not strong enough. The booze is telling you you failed. You have to find a way to drown out that noise.

Nikki: I don’t want to find it, jack. I– I can’t fight this anymore. It’s 24-7. I mean, will I drink or will I not drink? And then– and then, when I take a drink, then all that goes away. I mean, don’t I deserve to have a little piece and quiet?

[ Bottle shatters ] Type 2 diabetes?

Nikki: Oh, you’re still here.

Jack: Hey, yeah. Room service came, cleaned up a little bit. Why don’t– come have something to drink?

Nikki: Oh, that’ll be vodka.

Jack: I don’t give up that easily. Come on, have a little bite to eat.

Nikki: No, I’m not hungry. Smells nauseating.

Jack: Ah, that’ll go away after the third bite.

Nikki: Oh, are you a doctor now? Or just playing one on tv?

Jack: Just a few forkfuls. Here. Have some coffee.

Nikki: Um, I really don’t feel well. Could you get me a cold towel in the bathroom?

Jack: So you can get another slug? No, that’s not going to happen. No, I know all the tricks. Come on, drink.

Nikki: I don’t have the strength to fight this anymore. I mean, look what I’ve done. Harrison could have been killed. Claire, too.

Jack: Nikki, nikki, that’s over. Jordan is gone.

Nikki: I can’t even celebrate that. The damage is done. How many years does poor harrison have of horrific nightmares? As for claire, who knows what jordan did to her, how that will affect her.

Jack: I don’t have any of those answers. No one does. We’ll only know with time. But I will say ’til I am blue in the face, you are not to blame for jordan’s actions.

Nikki: I should have let her die when I had the chance.

Jack: If you insist on being responsible, why not do what you do best?

Nikki: Hand me that bottle and I will.

Jack: Pulling yourself together to help your family.

Nikki: Yeah, I’m a real mother teresa.

Jack: Think, if you were able to take all of the energy you’re using to convince me you should drink to fighting for something else, for people you love, for organizations you believe in.

Nikki: Oh, god, jack. You think doing charity work will make me sober?

Jack: I think if you stopped wallowing in self-pity for long enough, you would realize that it has helped you in the past to be there for others. Think of how you have helped new hope. Think of all the fundraising you’ve done for ms.

Nikki: Well, I’ll just do another concert. Then, all my troubles will be over.

Jack: That is not you talking. You are a kind, thoughtful person. That is liquor talking.

Nikki: I’m just letting the real me out and it’s a damn relief.

Jack: So, what about the people you’ve helped? People whose lives you have literally changed. Katherine and neil would tell you, you changed theirs. You helped them at very low moments in their lives. Why not do the same thing for your great-grandson? Create happy memories for him to block out all those nightmares. Help claire so she doesn’t backslide. Hug her. Welcome her. I think you’ll be surprised at how helpful all that is.

Nikki: You’re right. I– I should help them. They deserve it. They deserve all of me. They deserve for me to pour this down the sink. And call that rehab.

Jack: Wait, do you mean that?

Nikki: Nice try, jack, but I can’t help anybody.

Jack: Don’t do this, nikki. Don’t do this. Trust yourself. Trust the program. Trust your higher power. That bottle can’t do a damn thing for you. I know you, nikki. You can beat this.

Nikki: That nikki is gone. And you’re going to have to rip this out of my hand to stop me. You can feel it when your dream becomes a pursuit.

Jack: Nikki, I’m not going to wrestle you for that bottle.

Nikki: Well, that’s too proper for you. Don’t want to get down in the mud with me.

Jack: Come on, let– let me take you to a meeting.

Nikki: Oh, that would be pretty. All those people I’ve poured my heart out to looking at me like this.

Jack: No one is turned away. You are always welcome in that room.

Nikki: I am not going anywhere.

Jack: Okay, okay, okay, fine. Let– let me distract you. Talk to me. We can talk about happy memories. Memories we share.

Nikki: You think I haven’t done that? It’s a landmine. I mean, for every happy memory, there’s one ten times worse.

Jack: Okay, okay, then let’s talk about family. You have a great family. A husband who would follow you to the ends of the earth. Children who adore you. Who would be devastated if anything happened to you.

Nikki: Will you stop it? You’re just making things worse. You can’t fix me.

Jack: Here, give me.

Nikki: Hey!

Jack: Give me.

Nikki: Stop it. You said that you wouldn’t wrestle me.

Jack: No, if it takes getting down in the mud with you, I will make it happen.

Nikki: Fine. Pour it down the sink if you want. There’s plenty more where that came from.

Jack: Nikki, please.

Nikki: None of your lectures have worked. I– I’m sorry I picked you as my sponsor.

Jack: Wait, don’t say that.

Nikki: Why? Why? Because it makes you feel bad because you failed? The great jack abbott finally met a problem he couldn’t solve. Well, don’t blame yourself. That– that’s my fault. I mean, I– I let you talk me into it against victor’s wishes. Something else I screwed up. But he was right. You couldn’t help me and now he can say I told you so.

[ Nikki sighs ]

Nikki: That feels good. Don’t look so sad, jack. It’s a buzzkill. You either join the party or get out.

Jack: Fine, I will. Wow, that is smooth. I see you sprung for the triple distilled.

Nikki: Yeah, well, my life might be in the gutter, but I still have my standards.

Jack: Well, then you won’t mind my taking one of these bottles for myself.

Nikki: And do you really think you can stop me from getting drunk by drinking half my supply?

Jack: Just watch me.

Nikki: Put the glass down, jack. You’re making a fool of yourself.

Jack: You know what? We should call room service. See if they can send up some vermouth, some olives. I’ll make us a martini. Well, that’s not the kind of drinking we’re doing now, is it?

Nikki: What is your plan? Because I am not amused.

Jack: Oh, you want to be amused? Come on, let’s see if ol’ smilin’ jack can have fun again.

Nikki: I doubt that.

Jack: Oh, you don’t think so? Okay, I got a better idea. We got it in here somewhere. Oh, there it is.

Nikki: What are you doing? You can’t have me committed, you know. You don’t have the authority.

Jack: Relax, this isn’t about you. Kieran, it’s jack abbott. Yeah, yeah, it’s been a long time. Um, could you make a delivery to the genoa city athletic club, room 428? Yeah, same stuff. Thanks, buddy. You know what? You’re right. I have been wound too tight for too long. It is time to get loose. Struggling with the highs and lows of bipolar 1?

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue…

Nikki: Who was that? Who did you call?

Jack: Patience, my dear. All– it’s fine.

Nikki: Whatever you’re up to, it won’t work.

Jack: I am merely doing what you asked. I’m joining the party.

Nikki: You know damn well it’s not a party.

Jack: Oh boy, do I know that well. But as you so kindly pointed out, I have been a failure as your sponsor. So, to hell with it.

Nikki: Don’t try your reverse psychology on me. I want you out of here right now.

Jack: Or what?

Nikki: Or I will start screaming.

Jack: No, I don’t think you’re going to do that. No, I think you’re curious how far I’m going to take this. No, you can’t drink all that liquor yourself. My god, it puts you in the hospital, and that’s not part of the plan, is it? You said no rehab, and that’s exactly where the hospital would send you. And after an ugly detox, the strongest drink they serve you is apple juice. No, I’m doing you a favor, helping you with this, so you don’t overdo it. So come on! Let’s have a little fun here. Let’s have some toast. Come on. Come on! You want to do the first toast?

Nikki: No.

Jack: Okay, I’ll do it. To jordan’s reign of terror. She fell to her death running from her own damn crimes.

Nikki: For god’s sake, stop this.

Jack: Okay, okay, okay. We’ll lighten it up. It’s family. Talk about… no, your 40th anniversary. Victor would be pissed if we left him out of this. I mean, speaking of that, what about our marriage? You want to drink to our marriage?

Nikki: Jack, no, I–

Jack: No, no, no, stop, stop. I know just the toast. Please, please. To our enduring friendship. A lifetime together. As friends. Through thick and thin, no matter what.

Nikki: I don’t wanna toast. I want you to leave so I can drink in peace.

Jack: But, wait, it’s just getting started.

Nikki: Now you’re mocking me. Trying to get me to see what I look like. Well, don’t bother. I know how pathetic I am.

Jack: Oh, please, stop feeling sorry for yourself. Did it ever occur to you this isn’t all about you? Maybe I’ve been experienced some hell these past few months. Harrison is my grandson. I almost lost him. I spent countless hours with victor newman, of all people, looking for him. And claire. And that’s just the half of it. Ashley is a mess and she won’t ask for help. Kyle and diane are doing some tug-of-war over their jobs at jabot, with me in the middle. And then… and then, there is you. My lifelong friend who I could not help. I’ve been juggling a million balls in the air. Trying to be there for everyone. I can’t do it. It’s not working. And then, I see you. I see you drink and… all the relief you get out of a drink. It kills me. I want some relief.

Nikki: Well, there’s just one thing wrong with your pitch, jack. Alcohol was never your problem.

Jack: No, you mean it was never my solution. No, alcohol will calm me, yes. Now, to take away the pain, I need something stronger.

[ Knocks on door ] Wow! Talk about timing. This is first-class delivery.

Nikki: You better not be trying to pull something.

Jack: This is about me, not you. Thanks. Now, this is what hits the spot. Schwarzkopf

Nikki: Stop this, jack. What you’re doing is very dangerous.

Jack: I know what I have to do now. It’s crystal clear. I have to put myself in your shoes. I haven’t been doing that as a sponsor. No, I’ve been lecturing you with empty platitudes and slogans. And that’s not enough. No, I have to remember what it feels like. And alcohol is not my drug of choice. Now, these. When I hold these in my hand, that gives me comfort. The ease they can give me.

Nikki: What about the harm they can do? You know that too.

Jack: Well, it doesn’t matter. Once the urge is triggered, the pull is too hard, right?

Nikki: Well, make a damn gratitude list.

Jack: I am grateful for you. I am grateful for the bond we have. I would do anything for you.

Nikki: Yeah, but not like this. You– you can’t ruin your life to help me.

Jack: I am your sponsor, nikki. I will do whatever it takes. I would follow you to rock bottom so we could climb out together.

Nikki: Is your ego so big? You– you hate failure so much that you would do something so stupid? Are– are you telling me that– that you still have your dealer’s number after all these years? Why would you do that?

Jack: For the same reason you have a bottle of vodka at the newman ranch. Just to know it’s there. A little test we give ourselves, we addicts. Just to know we have the power over our addiction. Until now.

Nikki: Well, you’re not as weak as I am. You’re strong. You’ve got too many years under your belt. Too much to lose.

Jack: I said that to diane. She didn’t know I had a pain pill problem. I confided in her when I agreed to be your sponsor. And you know what she said? She was worried that helping you might tempt me. Draw me back to the pills. I told her there’s not a chance. And then the stress builds and builds until I’m dealing with a maniac who’s with control of my grandchild. And for the first time in I don’t know how long, I thought just one pill would give me some release. Just– just to ease the tension. It would help everyone else. If they didn’t have to deal with my tension. If they didn’t have to deal with mr. Uptight.

Nikki: Nobody thinks of you that way.

Jack: You do. You said it yourself.

Nikki: That was just because I was mad at you. And I want you out of here.

Jack: I don’t want to go anywhere. I want what you have! I want to just drink and wash it all away. You do that. You’ve survived. I just want it for me. For one night.

Nikki: You know that’s not how it works, jack. That’s crap. That’s the disease talking. It’s the rationalization.

Jack: Wow, who’s handing out the platitudes and advice now?

Nikki: Well, that’s because you’re the one with the family who needs you. I mean, they count on you. You’re the glue that holds them together.

Jack: I said that about you.

Nikki: Yeah, but that was a lie. My family blames me for this whole nightmare with jordan. You saw it on summer’s face when I told her that I had saved jordan’s life. Oh, she tried to deny it, but it was obvious. She blames me. I saw it in her eyes.

Jack: No, no, no. No, no, no. I did not see that.

Nikki: Well, I don’t want to hear it. And I don’t want any company on my trip to rock bottom. Do you understand? This is my world. My nightmare and I don’t want company. You’re not welcome.

Jack: Too bad. You’re stuck with me. Come on! Let’s do this together.

Nikki: You are being incredibly cruel.

Jack: Oh, that is rich. I give up and join you, and I’m the cruel one. You level vitriol and accusations at me all night long. What do you expect me to do? Just turn my back on you?

Nikki: I expect you to get the hell out of here.

Jack: We’re in this together now.

Nikki: You’re trying to make me feel more worried about you than I am about myself.

Jack: No, no. But you don’t have to worry about me. I can handle it, just like you say you can.

Nikki: Okay, that’s it. That’s it. You’re out of here, buddy. Now. Or I am going to start screaming and I’m going to call the police, too. Jack! No! I can’t let you do that.

Jack: How’s it feel? To not be able to stop someone you love from hurting themselves?

Nikki: Jack! ( )

Nikki: You didn’t really take that pill. It was all an act. You were trying to show me what it’s like to not be able to stop you, right?

Jack: There is something liberating about just giving up.

Nikki: Jack, you– you have no reason to give up. I mean, you– you have everything. Your– your life is perfect.

Jack: On the outside, yeah. You don’t know my inner life.

Nikki: It’s because I’ve been too selfish to ask.

Jack: I let you down as a friend, as a sponsor. I know you blame yourself for what happened to claire. I blame myself for your slip.

Nikki: No, please, don’T. Don’t do that. Jack, please, listen. Listen to me. I– I am going to get sober, okay? I’m going to have some coffee and a little something to eat, okay? Come, come join me.

Jack: No, no, this feels too good.

Nikki: Jack, jack, no, please, stop. I’m begging you, please, give me the pills. Give me the pills. You– you can’t mix them with alcohol.

Jack: You’re giving me advice now? I like that.

[ Phone ringing ] What? What? I got it!

Nikki: Oh!

Jack: It’s victor. It’s a missed messages. Missed, mixed– can’t say it.

Nikki: All right. Give me my phone–

Jack: No, what, you don’t want me answering it? Hello, mr. Mustache. It’s me, mr. Uptight. You would not believe where I am. You should come join us for the fun.

Nikki: That is so not funny.

Jack: Can you imagine how he would react if he saw us here? It would be fun to see the look on his face– yeah, okay, yeah. Maybe we should leave him in the dark. He’d just disapprove. Give me that look. Why does he do that with his eyebrow? Hey, hey. Hey, what? Hey, let’s just stay here. Our own private paradise. You and me, okay? Look out for each other.

Nikki: Jack, jack, jack, I– I– I was wrong. You’re right, I– I– I’m sorry. I do need a meeting. I– I need you to take me. You need one, too.

Jack: Dance with me.

Nikki: No, no, no.

Jack: No, come on, dance with me.

Nikki: I don’t feel like dancing, jack.

Jack: Dance with me.

Nikki: Please, jack. Oh, my god. Jack, jack, wake up. Oh, my god, wake up. Jack, wake up, please. Jack!

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Okay. I will be haven. Oh, you are nothing like that woman. That’s why it’s called acting, ma. Okay. Georgie, james, pay attention. You guys are gonna be the audience. Go easy on me, will ya? What do you say, guys? Are we gonna be an easy crowd? Or are we gonna be a tough crowd? Tough. Oh! Shocker.

[ Laughs ] Oh! Brook lynn, this is so exciting. Your grandmother loves

home & heart. She’s gonna be over the moon about this. Your other grandmother. Oh, good. More interlopers in… monica’s home.

[ Laughing ] Whoa! What’s with her? Tracy’s been in a huff all week having the kids home on spring break. I feel her pain. Mom! You know I love you. Where’s bailey lou? Uh, she’s with my mom.

[ Chuckles ] Thank god. She’s been a real terror lately. Oh, not my girl bailey! Yeah, your girl bailey. Back me up, georgie. Total terror. See? It’s weird to put cream on your face. Like, it doesn’t really even do anything. How would you know, huh? I tried it. Like, the tiniest pea-size amount, right? I don’t know. I just dumped it in my hand and started rubbing it around.

[ Laughs ] Oh! Oh, look, it’s violet! Hi, violet. And chase and gregory, of course. You guys came to watch. We wouldn’t have missed it. Uncle chase said you were practicing to be a tv star. I might do that when I’m older, too. I thought you want to be a doctor like your dad. Tv star is my backup for if that takes too long. Oh! I love it. A woman with a plan. Come here and join our tough crowd. Whoo! Lights, camera, action. Oh!

[ Laughter ] Where, for the love of god, is the nanny? There are children in every corner of this house. Melanie’s mother had a dental emergency. Oh, great. Well, now for my second and final complaint. I highly doubt that. I cannot believe that you took my intention to hire a cook as an opportunity to offer the job to sasha. We don’t know if she can boil a hot dog. She has worked in restaurants, tracy. Of the fast-food variety. Uh, no. Real restaurants. Well, so has almost everybody under the age of 30 without a trust fund. So what?

[ Telephone rings ] Seventh floor. No. Dr. Soriano, I believe you can find nurse baldwin down in pediatric icu. Of course, I’ll let her know if I do. Everybody’s looking for elizabeth. I know. I would hate to be her. They asked me to work a double, but I can’T. You? I just worked a 12 overnight. I-I have kids to get home to. So does elizabeth. Maybe I am an awful person. We can’t rule it out.

[ Telephone rings ] Seventh floor.

[ Elevator bell dings ] I’m sorry, dr. Soriano. If she’s not there, I don’t know. Try…orthopedics?

[ Sighing ] Oh, god. Problem? Guess not. Uh, michael said wiley was throwing up last night, so I thought maybe I should pick up something for him on the way home, but no answer. So I guess melanie — the nanny — must be out with both kids and he’s fine.

[ Laughs ] Um, don’t shoot the messenger, but I have been deputized to do a multi-floor search for a nurse who is willing to take an additional shift, since regina’s out sick. I’m sorry. I-I’ve just — I’ve been here all night. I just can’T. I have a 1-year-old who, after a 12-hour shift, I don’t think even remembers me. I hear you. I couldn’t have worked the hours that you do when my girls were little, which begs the question… what? You’re not asking me why I have a job? Oh, no! Sorry. No, having work that fulfills you, work that makes a difference — these things matter.

[ Telephone rings ] Sorry. Seven floor. Elizabeth, I am so sorry. I just — of course I would. I would be happy to pick aiden up. No trouble at all. Elizabeth is still looking for a replacement, but in the meantime, I’m gonna pick up aiden for her, so I guess I feel a little less guilty.

[ Chuckles ] Well, I better continue my search. With a little bit of luck, elizabeth will be out of here while the sun is still shining. There. See? All right, good job, wiley. Hey. What’s up? With melanie helping out with her mom, I thought it’d be fun to hang out with the kids, but apparently I’m not as fascinating as comet. Few people are, michael. Few people are. Hey. Is lunch ready? The new cook said 45 minutes. I’m not optimistic. Okay. Well, uh, you should be optimistic because you know, the new, uh, cook is that old friend of mine, and I bet she does a great job. I’m with you, michael. I think the new cook is a real find. Melanie? I’m home. Hmm. It doesn’t sound like anyone’s here. No, it doesn’T. Maybe she took the kids up to the main house for lunch. Do you want to join them, or I can make a sandwich for you to eat here if you want. I’ll go up to the house. I know you worked the overnight shift. You must be tired. Aw. Your mom did, too. I hope it doesn’t take too long to find that replacement nurse. You must be desperate to go home and get into bed. Thanks for picking me up at the library. Of course. I’ll text jake to pick me up from his soccer practice. How do sports get away with holding practice when there’s no school? It’s his travel league, so they’re basically allowed to do whatever they want. Let me know if you need anything? I will. I always found it easier to hold the products like this, but maybe that’s just me. No, it fe– it feels better. Okay, maybe you turn the label around so it’s facing directly towards the camera. Hey, you know what, sasha? Why don’t you show brook lynn how to cheat to an imaginary camera, like, over there somewhere? I have the non-imaginary camera right here.

[ Chuckles ] What are you doing here? Because I was so rudely not invited? Well, you know, I just thought that maybe a screen test for our new proposed spokesmodel was in order. Why? Why? Because you seem to think that anybody and everybody can sort of do the duties that I did so well. That remains to be seen.

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

[ Sighs ] Here’s my pride and joy.


You want to describe the texture — what it smells like, how it feels on your skin. With glowing adjectives, of course. Of course. Silky, dewy, fresh. Then you apply just the dab on your cheek, and you rub it in… …just like this. Lucy: Ah. Flawless. Okay, let’s shoot. Brook lynn, you’re up. Okay, ready? Uh, quiet on the set. Action! Lois: Okay. Honey, hold it a little closer to your face. That way the viewers can see the label. Brook lynn: Like this? Exactly. I was gonna say that. Yes. Yes. Like this? Um, not that close. Maybe…here should be good. I think I’m gonna go sit out in the sun for a while, get some vitamin D. Can I come? All: No! Good luck, kiddo.

[ Laughter ] Brother! Okay. Take two action! Sasha is a great cook. I just never thought that she’d be doing it for a living. Yeah, I think the, uh, offer of free room and board was too tempting. Also, the flexibility, I don’t think mama q’s gonna fully surrender her kitchen. No. No, no. I mean, it’s probably mostly just breakfast and lunches while olivia’s at work. Plus, sasha has weekends off, which is great. And maybe I can make a music video someday. I would love that. And ride comet while I’m singing! Whoa, whoa, whoa. You’re gonna have to talk to his agent first. And who’s his agent? You’re looking at him. Is it okay for the boys to play in the hay, even though the horses eat it? Uh, it better be ’cause they do it all the time. Can I go play with them? Look at him. Uh, yeah. Have at it. I love the smell of hay! Georgie, keep an eye on the littles, will you? And holler if you need any help. You got it. So, uh, what’s this about a music video? Violet was watching brook lynn practice her spokesmodeling up at the house, and they were videotaping her, and now violet’s got a little bee in her bonnet. Wait, I thought blaze was the new face of deception. She is, but it’s in her contract that she won’t do any of the promotional stuff. Oh, so that’s on brook lynn now? And I don’t think she’s too happy about it. Tracy, you are not the only decision maker in this household. And I am not the only person in this household who was sick to death of leftovers and yuri’s borscht. Hello. That’s why I hired someone. I want a real cook. No, you want someone who’s not gonna let anyone into the kitchen, and I’m not gonna allow that again. That’s the point. They have their domain, and we have ours. Ah, tracy. I love cooking for my family, when I have the time to do it. That’s what makes sasha the perfect solution to this problem. Hello, aiden. Hi. Ms. Quartermaine. Hello, another family’s child. Be nice. Something smells good. Yes. It does smell good, doesn’t it, tracy? Where’d you come from? My mom got stuck at work, so mrs. Corinthos picked me up and dropped me off. Well, lunch is gonna be served shortly, so I certainly hope you’ll stick around and eat with us. I’d like that. Thanks. Of course you would. Just want to peek in the oven. Sasha. When you finish lunch, I have a request. Okay. Would you go get a cookbook, please? Bring it here to me. Open it to any page and point. Mamma mia! You gotta be kidding me. Aha!

Tournedos rossini. Sounds delightful. That’s what I want for dinner.


Tournedos rossini? One of my favorites. Do we have ptĂ©? And if we do, will the kids eat it? I don’t know. Tracy, what do you think? The kids want ptĂ©? I think you should pick another recipe.

Pot-au-feu. Perfect second choice.

Pot-au-feu it is. Dinner at 7:00? Oh. Works for me. Sasha, I am so sorry. I take it tracy is not happy with me as the new cook? What was your first clue? Well, I’ll just have to prove her wrong, won’t I? Oh, bless you. Honey, I’m gonna give you all the space you need. If you need anything at all, you just call me for backup. Okay. Bye. Thank you. Can I ask you a question? Ask away. I love to bake, but I’ve never seen anything like what you have in the oven. Oh, well, it’s a great way to use any leftovers you have in the fridge. You want to help me chop up some vegetables, and I’ll tell you all about it? Sure. Come on.

[ Door opens ] Hey. Sorry. Didn’t mean to wake you. No, it’s okay. Where’s melanie? Oh, uh, her mom had a little emergency. Is she okay? Uh, yeah, yeah. It was just a dental thing. So I came home to be with the kids, and wiley is at the stables with cody. Oh, the horses were more entertaining than dad, huh? Yeah, pretty much.

[ Chuckles ] I, uh — I sent aiden up to the main house for lunch. Aiden webber? Yeah. Elizabeth got stuck at the hospital, asked if I could bring him here and make sure he got fed. Well, that’s nice of you to help out. All right. It’s time for you to go to bed. Um, you stay here. Get some rest. And I’ll be right back. Okay. Here we go. You ready? I hear deception is debuting a new product. That’s right, haven. What’s it called? Disruptor nourishing moisturizer. Catchy name. I know, right? Can you tell us about it? Oh, yes! Our newest product is a face cream. It does wonders for the skin. We like the sound of that. Please go on. Okay, yes, well, um, the texture is silky smooth, and you just take a little bit on — oh, shoot. Cut! I’m sorry! No, no, no, honey, it’s okay! You’re still getting the hang of it.

[ Clapping ] I want 100 jars and the beautiful face-cream model. Uh, sorry, you are not our target audience. All right, come on. Let’s look at the dailies. Okay. Come on, sweetie. Come on, come on. Let’s see. Let’s see. Play it on this thing. Here we go. Play. Brook lynn: …Silky smooth, and you just take a little bit on — oh, shoot. Okay. Well, that’s what rehearsals are for. Sasha wasn’t perfect the first time, either. Uh, she was a lot better than that. Okay! You know what, brook lynn, you just need to relax. Come on, come on, come on. Just a little bit. And you know what? We’re gonna just try it again. -Okay. -Okay? Excuse me. Why don’t we give the professionals a chance? And I’m guessing you’re the professional? Watch and learn.

[ Sighs ] How was your shift? Oh, long, exhausting, but good. All right. Do you want to head up to bed? Don’t tempt me. No, go ahead. You deserve a nap. You know, I, uh… I sleep better when you’re beside me.


I’m too young to die.What do you desperados want? All your money. Ah! [ Laughs ] You picked the wrong cowboy. We’ll take your horses then. But they already belong to your family. Actually, i am the sheriff, and you’re all under arrest. Ah! Including you. And now you have to marry georgie. That’s a weird punishment. -[ Laughs ] -Aah!

[ Grunting ] Ah. Thank you. What did I do? You arrived just in the nick of time. Saved me from getting hitched. Well, you’re welcome. How’s it going up at the manse? Pretty sure that my first day as to cook will also be my last. Tracy? She’s not a fan.

[ Laughs ] And it’s a real bummer because I really liked my new room. Um, do you want me to talk to her? I mean, believe it or not, I think tracy actually likes me. It’s okay. You know what? There was something too good about it to be true from the start. Especially the part where I got to be near you every day. Olivia’s mad at me. What happened? We need a cook. Quartermaines have always had a cook. Not since I’ve known you. No, because since you’ve known me, olivia has lived here, and she insisted that she could take it on. But you cannot run a hotel, raise a child with special needs, and cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner for a house full of people. It’s too much. Agreed. So, instead of hiring a professional cook, olivia offered the job to her friend. Do I know this friend? You certainly do. Sasha corbin. And I get it. Olivia wants somebody that she can kick out of the kitchen without feeling uncomfortable. When she wants to cook, you mean? Mm-hmm. And I certainly do understand that, but we don’t know if sasha has the skills for this, and hiring someone to do a job that they can’t do helps no one. Not us and not sasha. Am I being awful? You’re being practical. Some homes, the kitchen is a place to gather. Not this one. Exactly. We have the nook for that. How come you get that and olivia doesn’t? Probably because I have no skin in the game. But this is olivia’s home, too. She just wants to be comfortable in it. Am I being too rigid? You’re being you. So, that’s rigid, angry, and unyielding.

[ Chuckles ] Where does that come from, you think? Lucy: Haven. [ Chuckles ] Haven, have I told you that I am the brainchild of deception? Haven? Oh, yes. About 17 billion times.

[ Laughs ] Right, right, because it’s so true. And you all — all are very, very welcome. Now, today we have the disruptor nourishing moisturizer, brand-new product and, by the way, my idea. Well, I mean, it wasn’t my idea, the formula, but the way it benefits your skin — totally my idea. Let me — let me show you.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Wait. There. Mm. It is so absorbing. It absorbs right straight into your skin. It’s not absorbing at all. Working that cream like it’s furniture polish.

[ Lucy speaks indistinctly ] Yikes. She’s not very good at this, is she? I don’t think I’m one to talk. What? You were perfect. Like a deer in headlights. Look, I love maxie and deception, but I can’t help but feel like this is a wrong turn for me. You did seem

kind of uncomfortable. Kind of? And nobody watching is gonna believe that you need a face cream. I love you. Aha! See? There.

[ Clears throat ] All absorbed. Our disruptor nourishing moisturizer cream is so good. It feels so wonderful on my skin, ladies and gentlemen. My baby, my creation. Get yours today! Oh, well, that was, um… fantastic. I know. Thank you. Um, you know what? Why don’t we just review it all, take a peek, and then we can all just kind of vote? Okay. Mm-hmm. Yeah. I think I’m mad at time. And all the years that I wasted being too afraid to… leave my safety net. The only risk I ever took in my life was on luke, and I only had him for a few years before I lost him. Happiness is great as long as you’ve got it. Are you unhappy now? No. I’m disappointed. The advantages that I’ve been given in life are obscene. As are… …how little I’ve done with them.


Okay, this is gonna sound crazy. When has that ever stopped you? Why don’t you move in with me? I’ve got a nice, comfortable room upstairs if you can stand the spiral staircase to get to it. I’m not wrong in that we have kissed exactly once, yes? No, that — that’s right. Yes. So, I feel like cohabitation isn’t really the natural next step. Well, we wouldn’t be sharing a bed or anything. Unless you wanted to, in which case, we totally could be.

[ Laughs ] And where would you sleep? Uh, well, you know, we’ve got an extra cot in the tack room for when a mare is foaling. I could just bring it upstairs.

[ Alarm beeping ] That’s lunch. I need to take it out of the oven. There’s plenty if you’re interested. I am definitely interested. Georgie! Round up the kids for lunch! Let’s go! Georgie! Lucy:

Get yours today. -Huh. -Huh. Well, you know, nobody looks, uh, good in that kind of light. You know what? I think brook lynn just needs one more run-through. That’s all. Come on, sweetie. Come here. Come here. Come stand. All right. Look, I’m gonna show you, okay? So, you want to pick up and hold the product like this. Okay? Right? Not like this like it’s a secret weapon, but like it’s — it’s the greatest secret in life, and you are gonna share that secret with the world. Or with the viewers of home & heart, at least, okay? And then you’re gonna open it very gently. Maybe smell. Mmm! Right? And then you’re gonna take just a tiny little bit. Right? What are you doing? Why? Why? Why not? Okay. And then, you’re going to see that it’s like a little pearl.

[ Gasps ] Right? Which is fitting because this cream is the ultimate in luxury. You’re gonna put it on. Mm! Silky, hydrating. Oh, it’s like I’ve died and gone to heaven, right? Right? Mm. Oh, good. I was just coming to find you. How’s it looking? Light brown on top and ready to come out, I think. Perfect. I’m happy to help you serve it if you want. Yeah? You’re a lifesaver, aiden webber. Hey. Are you headed back to the office? Uh, nah, that ship as sailed, I think. What about you? When’s your next shift? I’ve been thinking about that, about my job at gh in general. Yeah, I saw you were, uh, looking at that new tomorrow institute pamphlet. Oh, you did, did you? Yeah, I’m observant like that. So…talk to me. Representing the nonprofit, it would essentially be a part-time volunteer position. Okay. Meaning I’d no longer be getting paid. Well, you know, it’s not like we need the money. I know, but a lot of people do. Like elizabeth, for example. She’s raising three boys on her own, and she doesn’t have the luxury of turning down a double shift like I do. Yeah, I hope jason being back can ease her financial burden a little bit. I hope so, too. But it’s got me thinking. Nursing is wonderful, important work, and I’ve — I’ve loved doing it. I know you have. But I am starting to wonder if I’ve been doing it for the wrong reasons.


independence is important to me. I get that. And I’m not sure I even realized it at the time, but it was a huge factor in my becoming a nurse. The idea of solely relying on you for money — it made me uncomfortable. I liked knowing that if you left tomorrow… never happening. …I could stand on my own two feet. And I still relate to all that. I just… taking this position would allow me to still do something meaningful that makes me proud, while being able to be there for my kids in a way I can’t now. I’d get to see all of wiley’s t-ball games and take amelia to the swings myself, not hear about it later from melanie. Well, just to be clear, you know, melanie — she’s a great nanny, and, uh, the kids are happy and thriving. I know. I know they are, but I’m missing stuff, michael. And I don’t have to. And that makes me so incredibly lucky. I mean, what drew is proposing — an opportunity for me to help recruit bone-marrow donors and stem-cell donors who, in turn, could help cure cancers like I had, and also spend significantly more time with my kids? I mean, what a gift, for them and for me. Well, it sounds like you made up your mind. You don’t seem surprised.

[ Chuckles ] I had a feeling this is how it would shake out. I just, I wanted you to get there yourself. And here I am. Here you are. Here we are. So you’re on board if I do this? I’m on board with anything that makes you happy. Anything? Anything. Why? Do you, uh… did you have something specific in mind? As a matter of fact, I do. If I’m hearing you right, you feel you’ve been… showered with temporal gifts in life — money, property, a close-knit if not always harmonious family. Ha! Harmonious. But in your opinion, you don’t have much to show for it. Well done. Achievement is overrated. I don’t think we were put on this earth to win trophies or become famous or make scientific discoveries. Don’t get me wrong, power to you if you do, but the way I see it, I… I think our job is to love the lives we’ve been given and the people we’ve been set down amongst and be grateful for all of it. I don’t think I’ve been very successful by that measure, either. There’s still time. And not all of us can say that. -Come on, guys, let’s go! -Hi, grandpa! Hey. Excuse us. Wiley: It’s time for lunch! Yes! Be brave, james. You can do it. I, for one, think it looks delicious. Thank you. You’re very welcome. Wait, ma, can you just go through it one more time? Mm-hmm. How did you hold the product so that it was showing towards the camera? Oh, okay. You hold it just like this. And how did you get just the right amount of cream? Oh, okay. Well, I’ll show you. You’ve gotta open it up gently and take just a little bit. You know, a little bit goes a long way. This cream — it’s a miracle, you know? I mean, it is a complete game changer. That’s the plan. And then? I’m sorry. Oh, sweetie. It’s okay. You’re just learning. The application part — can you show me that part again? Okay, yeah, you — oh, wait, smell this first. Huh? Oh, that smells like the summer. I mean, it takes me right back to the beach. And the texture of it — come on. I happen to be a woman of a certain age, and this — this makes me feel like I am brand-new. Lucy: Stop! Just stop right there. Stop, stop, and stop.


It is time to face facts. Brook lynn simply cannot be the deception spokesmodel. Whoa, whoa, whoa! I think you’re being a little hasty here, because brook lynn just needs a little bit more time. Time’s not really the problem. Lucy’s right, ma. Besides… we already have the perfect deception spokesmodel. Oh, if you say yourself again, lucy, I swear I’m gonna scream. Lois! It’s you. Huh? You. You’re it. Have you lost your ever-loving mind? No, because you just presented our product effortlessly. And, in fact, it was almost poetic. It’s true. I have the footage to prove it. And you love our products, lois. It has to be you.

[ Scoffs ]

Really? Really. And just imagine everyone in the old neighborhood seeing you on tv. Oh! The girls will get such a kick out of it, won’t they? Okay, come on. Come on. Are you in? Why, thank you. What service. Of course.

[ Chuckles ] This actually smells very good. Have you seen my dad? I have not. He must have gone back to our house. W to help me bring him some lunch? I bet I can beat you there. Oh, please. I’m much faster than both of you. Right, grandpa? She is pretty fast.

[ Chuckles ] Plate. Fork. On your mark, get set… go! This is really delicious. Gteau salĂ©. You’ve had it before? I have. Luke and I were living abroad, and we used to take little weekend trips to… get a change of scene. Isn’t europe amazing that way? A train ride, you’re in another country. Our favorite place to stay was this bed and breakfast in bergerac in the dordogne. And every morning, the patronne would bring a gteau salĂ© out for us when we woke up. Never the same ingredients twice, just whatever they had on hand. And it was always… perfect and light. Just like this. I would’ve liked to have met luke.

[ Laughs ] You would have hated him. I don’t think so. Maybe not. What else goes in a pot-au-feu? Come on, sasha, think. Why don’t you just look it up on your phone? Because that would be

cheating. Well, this is ridiculously good. Yeah? Yeah. Tracy would be crazy to pass on you.

[ Sighs ] From your lips. So, uh, speaking of lips…

[ Laughs ] Wow! What a segue. Yeah, I-I’m good at ’em. Um, no, uh… about before? I don’t — I don’t want you to think that I was trying to get you alone in my bedroom. Not that I’d be opposed, but… noted. The whole point is I’m team sasha. You won’t be without a place to crash as long as I’m around. Well, my dear, lunch was superb. I am delighted to welcome you to the household. Thank you. And don’t worry. I’m still working on dinner. You can stop. Actually, you can make whatever you want for dinner. No more tests. Do we understand each other? We do. And you — aren’t you supposed to be minding the rugrats? They’re not outside on the patio? No, they went off to look for michael. Ah! All right, on it.

[ Glass shatters ] It wasn’t my fault. Wiley pushed me. I did not! Hey, it doesn’t matter how it happened. Wiley, do you know where a broom is so we can clean this up? Here it is. What kind of party is this? And why wasn’t I invited? I brought my dad some lunch, but I can’t find him. Maybe they’re upstairs in bed. Let’s go look. Uh, I-I-I don’t think so. No. No. You all made a fine mess in the stables. You’re gonna help me clean up that bale of hay. -Fun! -Yeah! -Yay! All right, all of you, all of you, let’s go. Thank you. Yes, of course. It wasn’t supposed to be fun.

[ Door closes ] Are they gone? Gone. Remind me to give cody a raise.

[ Chuckles ] I will. I love you, willow. And I love our life. I love it, too. And you. So much it hurts sometimes.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Shhh. She’s finally sleeping. Well, I’m glad somebody’s getting some sleep around here. Here. What are you doing? Well, I know you don’t trust me. Message received. Loud and clear. So, here. Here’s everything. This is my accounts, bank statements, passwords. Take it. Here. And I promise you, I will never give Leah Stark another dime.

All my life. I know this doesn’t solve the issue. What me, Eric? I want the truth. Ahem.

Hey, what are these for me? Well, reception did ask me to deliver it to you. Oh, well, well. Looks like someone’s trying to butter me up. Don’t keep me in suspense. Read the card. Okay. And It’s from the estimable mayor of Salem. It’s just a small token of my appreciation. Thanks, guys. Uh, here, why don’t you take what you want and then throw the rest in the kitchen for whoever else wants it.

Chadwick! You truly are a man of the people. Your thoughtfulness and generosity know no bounds. Okay, is there something that you That I need, yes. I wanted to talk to you about the recorder position. Okay, uh, you said you weren’t interested in it. Well, I thought about it and I changed my mind. I’m ready to write about anything.

Great. I appreciate your, uh, enthusiasm. But, uh, I’m sorry. Sorry why? I offered the position to Nicole. She accepted it.

The Benedict was mind blowing. Chef’s hollandaise sauce is hands down. My favorite thing ever. I needed to make sure you had a proper meal before your big first day. Oh, that’s very sweet of you. So, what made you change your tune? With regards to Me joining the workforce, because when I first mentioned it, you were somewhat less than keen on it.

I’ll admit, I was thrown by the initial idea, but the more we talked about it, the more I could see that spark in your eye. And what makes you happy, makes me happy.

Hey, baby girl. You were saying your throat was dry, so I brought you some nice cold water. Thank you, Mama. How’s the nausea? It’s pretty persistent. Oh, sweetheart. And where’s Kayla? She was supposed to Uh, right here. Right here. Okay, what’s going on, Chanel? Uh, well, I, I just feel, like, not myself. Uh, fatigue.

Dizziness, nausea. You said that if we notice anything to come see you right away, so It’s radiation poisoning, isn’t it?

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

So you hired Nicole. I guess that makes sense. Yeah, look, I think Nicole is going to bring a fresh perspective to the paper. One in which we desperately need right now. We do. 100%. But hey, look, if something else comes up, you know, maybe at the Metro desk, you’ll be the first person I ask. Great. Thank you. And in the meantime, Chadwick, would you consider giving me a raise?

Nothing crazy. 2%, 5%, 20 percent if you’re feeling generous. Just something, you know, commensurate with the amazing work I do around here. Okay, how about we talk about it during your, uh, Q4 review? Fine. That’s great. You know, since the love of my life is being released from prison, just any extra money would help me provide a better life for him.

Which he deserves after all these months of being incarcerated. He gave up a lot for me, including his inheritance. Well? Maybe Dimitri should get a job. How about that? I mean, I’m sure he’ll try. There’s not much need for an ex con with no skills, who’s all beauty, no brains. Uh, not that he’s stupid, not by any means, but he is certainly a bit of a lewdite.

You know, he types with one finger. Quite, uh, But still, you know, one finger you make so many mistakes. Anyway, you know what? I think I will bring some of these snacks to Dimitri, so at least he has some sweets waiting for him upon his return. Take as much as you want. Oh, thanks. Oh, and if you need me for the rest of the day, I am going to be working from home.

I’m going to be trying to auction off my gorgeous needlepoint pillows on eBay. Bye bye.

symptoms are actually very common and could be linked to any number of illnesses. It could be just a bad stomach bug. If we can rule out radiation poisoning, then let’s, let’s do it now. We will right away. Okay. We’ll do a blood work panel and then we’ll have a better idea what we’re dealing with. How are you doing?

You need anything? I’m okay for now. Okay. Sorry, you too, but I’m going to ask you to step outside so I can examine Chanel. Okay. I’ll see you soon, my love. Well, tell Gillis that I appreciate the brief, but he absolutely has to take the fuller case. To when? No, no, no. Move that and reschedule. Yes, I’ll be in later today, as soon as I can.

Sorry, I’m getting another call. I’ll text you.

Rita, what did sales say? I’m afraid I can’t make that time, but I want the meeting to happen today. Just tell sales to do the stand up without me. You’ll take notes and upload to my, uh, to my vault. Good. I’ll be in shortly.

Sorry about that. Honey, don’t be sorry. It comes with the territory. I married a very important man. Oh, and I married a very important, not to mention beautiful and charming woman.

And I love being able to share every single part of me with her. I love you, Nicole. You know, I just might be falling for you, too. That works out well, doesn’t it?

Because by each other’s side, there is nothing that we can’t do. I told you the truth, Eric, last night. And what you said absolutely made zero sense. Why would you be giving me your money when you know that a family is struggling financially? I didn’t think it was that bad, okay? Look, I’ve been working, making a decent living, like I always have.

I didn’t see an issue with helping out a friend. You know, what? Yes, I wanted to be generous and, and, and, and kind to a fellow human. So you were trying to make yourself feel like a better person. What? That’s That’s a bad thing? You don’t approve of that? Of my wanting to be, you know, Selfless? Charitable?

Are you kidding me right now? This is not what this is about! Nicole once told me that she felt she was never good enough for you. Seems like I’m not either. Maybe no one is. Sloane, where are you going? I need space. Sloane! I need time, Eric. Alone.

Some tea? Thank you.

Look, Paulina. I know you’re upset right now, okay, but just try not to be too hard on yourself. How can I not be hard on myself? I put my baby girl in danger. Of course. You know, let’s just wait and see what Kayla has to say. Oh.

Hello? Hi, Mayor Price. It’s Chad DiMera. Um, I was hoping I could, uh, follow up with you for a quote on a story that I’m working on. Is, uh, is now a good time? Couldn’t be worse. Call my assistant.

Who’s that? It was your Uncle Chad. What? I know that I asked you to Put in a good word with him about that story he’s writing about, but I can’t ask you that anymore. Not now. If, if Chanel has radiation poisoning because of me, then I deserve whatever, whatever scathing criticism I get for it. Alright. Here we go.

Here it is. Oh, one second. Hold on. Eric Brady. Hey, Eric. It’s Chad the Mayor. I’m glad I caught ya. Chad, hey. What’s going on? Uh, look, I was hoping that, um, that you could come by the office and, uh, we could talk about you doing some work for the paper. Is, uh What’s your schedule look like? Uh, yeah, yeah, I can be there in 20 minutes.

Awesome. I’m looking forward to it. Yeah, me too. Thanks. Bye.

Well, good news. Not timing, but good news. Okay, um, what are we gonna do? Now that mommy is gone, you might Boom! Okay, problem solved. You are going to be coming with daddy on his first big interview. Yeah. That’s what’s gonna happen. Okay.

Where’s my coffee? There’s plenty in the break room, and if you ask politely, I might just pour you a cup. Please and thank you go a long way, D. A. DiMera. Understood. So please, could you go get me some coffee, and I will be ever so thankful. But before you go, what’s the latest? In short, I’m running both your DiMera and D.

A. calendars on the new software in an effort to maintain some semblance of order. And? So far, so good. In terms of the university proposal, have you been able to review it? I have. I dropped my notes for you in your folder. I’ll move it along. Stan where? Depot’s next week. What about the weekly here in the office?

Wouldn’t miss it for the world! You sure about that? What exactly are you insinuating? Mr. DiMera, I’ve worked for every CEO here, from your father down the line, and with all due respect, you’re all the same. Brilliant, charming, handsome, world class leaders? Also arrogant, rude, and egotistical. Also wonderful qualities in my book.

But, ooh, before I forget, uh, I need you to swing by my other office after lunch. Waiting for a please in that sentence. Please? And, since I’m not a paralegal, why? Well, for one, I trust you. Two, you’re extremely efficient with time. And three, I pay you much more generously than a paralegal. I’m sure your actual paralegal is thrilled about that.

Well, she can take that up with Mayor Price. Speaking of, how does Mayor Price feel about her DA taking on a second job? I haven’t told her yet, as a matter of tact, really. She’s just got a lot going on lately. Tact, right. And, I think that if everything is running smoothly, It’s not really any of her concern.

So to that end, Rita, could you please swing by my other office after lunch and pick up the two case folders that are ready on my desk? Yes, sir. Oh, and by the way, as generously as you think you pay me, not generous enough. Is that your way of asking for a raise Rita? I’ll get your coffee now. Mmm.

That’s delicious. The rest, though, I will save for the love of my life, who will be out in three days, four hours, twenty five minutes and five seconds.

Good, you’re here. Sloane, this isn’t a good time unless you’re here to help me plan a welcome home party for Dimitri. No, I’m not here to help you with that. I’m here to make sure that you and the love of your life keep quiet about Jude. Uh, I hate to break it to you, but Demetri and I owe you nothing since you cut me off.

Look, Leo, Eric is crazy about his son. You came to the baptism, that little boy means everything to him. His heart would be in a million pieces if you took that kid away from him. Ha! And little Jude, he needs his mommy and his daddy. If you, if you don’t do it for Eric, please just do it for that, that little boy that you claim to care so much about.

Our son, he needs a family.

Reporting for duty, Captain. Hey, welcome to the team. Oh, I have to say, I am like a kid on the first day of school. I’m nervous and I’m excited. Listen, you’re going to do, you’re going to do amazing, Nicole. You have a ton of experience. Um, you’re obviously very smart. Thank you for the kind words. Uh, so what are you working on now?

Uh, yeah, the, uh, piece about Mayor Price’s recent radioactive misadventures. Oh, how’s that coming along? Yeah, solid. Thank you again for the tip. You know, sent me down a fairly informative rabbit hole. I think there’s a real story there. Disruptive? Potentially, yeah. As far as the, uh Mayor’s future political aspirations are concerned.

But, uh, you know, good or bad, gotta tell the public. Absolutely. She’s an elected official, after all. Um, it did make me wonder, though. How did you come across that information? So what do you think? An expose on Mayor Price and her most recent and possibly most egregious misappropriation of power. What a coup, right?

I don’t, I don’t know, EJ. I don’t even officially have the job yet. And to take off from the starting line with a potentially career threatening accusation against our beloved mayor? Beloved by whom? Not the everyday citizens I’ve been talking to. Okay, well, Chanel, I mean, she is Paulina’s daughter and married to your son.

Yes, I’m aware of that. Which, selfishly, is all the more reason people need to be aware that she is a ticking time bomb. Lest we forget, she put our lives and the lives of others at serious risk by carelessly running off to Smith Island when she was more radioactive than a bloody house cat in Chernobyl.

Okay, don’t you think that’s possibly a bit dramatic? Absolutely not. And I think it is someone’s duty to tell the truth, even when the truth isn’t pretty. Especially when the truth isn’t pretty.

Excuse me, I have to take this. I trust the spectator will do the right thing.

You haven’t even tasted it yet. Oh, no, no, not the coffee. Uh, thank you, by the way. What’s wrong then? I was sure that the Spectator’s ExposĂ© on Matt Price would impose by now. Why would you even expect that? From what I’ve heard, she’s been dealing with health issues. Oh, still working tirelessly for the people.

Well, I’ve heard from my sources there’s been a few Ah, those dreaded rumblings. I guess you could say I’m curious to see what shakes. An expose suggests some kind of dirty little secret, no? But what kind of skin have you got in the game, Mr. DiMera? If I were to be honest, the dynamic between Mayor Price and me has been less than ideal.

If she were to land in the mud, yes, that would be unfortunate. But I would continue to carry out my duties with the same fervor and commitment that my constituents expect from me. So, you don’t like her? She micromanages. She’s, she’s, she’s insufferable. Micromanaging bosses always are. Uh. Here’s a suggestion.

Kill him with kindness. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, one tends to catch more flies with honey. Say it. Say it. It’s

all my fault. Paulina. Maybe if you yelled at me, released some of that pent up frustration and anger, we’d both feel better. I have no desire to yell at you. Alright, that’s the last thing I want to do. Hey. Hey. I care about you, Paulina. I love you. Okay, and, and what you did coming to rescue Chanel, you were just doing what you thought was right at the time.

Uh, oh. Hey. How is she? Well, her vitals are really good. So we’re just going to wait for the blood work results, okay? Okay, so uh, can I go back to her room? Of course. Okay.

Why is this happening, Kayla? I’m the one who took the radioactive pill. Why am I okay and Chanel is sick? I don’t have any answers. I wish I did. You’re just gonna have to be patient, alright? Oh, how can I be patient? Patient. When my daughter is sick, because of me. When instead of trying to save her like I thought I was doing, I put her life in jeopardy.

Oh, how can I, can I be patient? How can I live with myself?

Wow, really tugging at the heartstrings, Sloane, going all out. Why wouldn’t I go all out? I mean, you and I both know EJ and Nicole, they’re gonna make the worst parents on the planet for little Jude. Well, I’d certainly be up there. Just look at Holly. I mean, and EJ’s kids. God, they’re all screwed up. Little Jude’s best life is with me and Eric.

Okay, look, I’m not gonna lie. That baptism, it gave me all the feels. But Sloane, the other reality here is that Eric is on to you. He is suspicious as hell. How long until this all blows up in your face? 48 hours? 36? Cause I’m going with more like 10 minutes actually. No, no, no. Leo, you listen to me and you listen hard.

You gain nothing by telling anyone anything. Okay? You’re just opening a whole new can of trouble and misery. The best thing that you can do for Dimitri to welcome him home is when he gets here, just bounce. Leave town. Start a new life. With Salem in the rear view.

Hey

beautiful. Johnny. Oh. Better now that you’re here. I’m going crazy just having to wait like this. You know about all the damage that radiation poisoning does to the body? Yeah, I’m sure it’s not great. And not to mention the treatments. Johnny, I’m scared. I’m trying not to show it in front of Mama, but I’m really freaked out.

Hey, look at me. Okay? Take my hand. Chanel, I love you. Okay, and we are going to have the best life together. I promise.

I think you might be onto something here, Rita. Extending the proverbial olive branch to Mayor Price can only help our relationship move in a more productive direction. Now you’re cooking. So, Paulina Price, what do we know? Well, she’s a true survivor for one. She values hard work. She holds herself in the highest standard.

She cares about Salem, hence hiring me as DA. We’ve got to work on your confidence, Mr. DiMera. Well, what do you think? No time like the present, right? Reach out to her now. Well, why not? The sooner I can make that phone call, the sooner we can build the bridge and we will all be stronger because of it. Isn’t that the first rule of journalism?

You know, you never give up your sources. Yeah, right. Uh, doesn’t apply to your editors. Ah, right. Well, uh, It was just something I, I heard in passing and it, it concerned me. Of course, yeah. And as you know, I live in the same house as Johnny who is a witness to all of it, so Yeah, I mean, there’s that. Right. Um, yeah, well listen, if you come up with any more information or you hear anything, don’t, you know, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Okay. It’s just, at the end of the day, I’m hoping the article is fair and honest because Abe is one of my dearest friends. Yeah, the same. I mean, listen, I, this, this platform is to bring public awareness. It’s not to be destructive or vindictive. So you have my word however this article evolves. Yeah. It’s not going to be hippies.

Got it. Okay. Good. Well, what are you standing around for? You’re supposed to be meeting with Vance. He’s going to set you up in the system so you can start telling your stories.

Leaving town. Hmm. It’s an interesting idea, huh? Truth is, I haven’t given much thought to what Dimitri and I will do next. Well, think about it now, Leo. There’s a whole exciting world out there. Big cities, tons of opportunities. L. A., Chicago. Have you been to New York? Austin’s amazing. What’s, what’s tying you down?

Go take care of you. You know, while you are footloose and fancy free. It is tempting. I like the idea of L. A. actually. The weather, the beaches, the La Brea Tar Pits. But New York has Central Park, Broadway, flaming saddles. Just, okay, I have to go, but I wish you and Dimitri all the happiness in the world, L. A.,

New York, whatever city it may be that you guys go, okay?

Oh, yeah. Well, first, to achieve said happiness, we are gonna need some moolah.

How to rake in the big bucks. I could become an influencer. I already am one. Um, stylist? Underwear model? Sell organs? No, that’s gross. Oh, I could get a second job at Saxton’s. No, no. With the employee discount, all I would do is shop.

E. J. DiMera.

What the info I possess would be worth to him. Hey.

Security told me we’re gonna have an extra visitor today. Yeah, I’m sorry about that. Normally, I Wouldn’t bring my son to an interview, but last minute child care options are far and few between. No worries, man. Jude will be our, uh, our honorary guest. Oh, good. Um, well, he’s beautiful. Yeah, he is.

Unfortunately, he fell asleep on the way. Listen, man, well, should we get started? Yeah, have a seat.

Um, I, so look, you know, I, uh, I took a look at your portfolio, and uh, I was very impressed. So, we’d love to have you do some work here at the paper, if you’re still interested. very much. Yeah? Yeah. Good. Um, I mean, it’d be freelance to start. For the first few assignments, at least, if that’s fair. Yeah, fair.

Okay, good. Um, This is the, uh, employee handbook. Read it over. I’m gonna go, uh, talk to HR and get your paperwork started. Sounds great. Welcome to the team. Thank you. Alright. Good news, right, buddy? Good for our entire team. Our whole family, that is. Eric. What are you doing here?

So, bribing EJ. Let’s start with the pros. Could be a huge possible payday if I spilled the beans. Dimitri and I would be set for life. And the cons, he is the DA and he’s a DiMera. Do I want to tangle with all that? Is it worth it? Ah, and taking Jude from Eric. That would be so hurtful to that sweet little boy.

I wish there was like, a procedure that could just remove my conscience. I know. I’ll go for a walk. That’s what I’ll do. I’ll go for a walk and clear my head.

I texted Abraham. I told him it’s, it’s a waiting game. He sends his love, told me to tell you that he’s praying for you. Thanks. Oh, Kayla. Yeah? I have your test results. Uh, Chanel, would you like to discuss them privately? Uh, no, it’s fine. Mama and Johnny can stay. Oh, oh, oh, sorry. D. A. DiMera. Oh, good. Mayor Price, I caught you.

I was wondering if we could meet up to discuss our current, rather unfortunate situation. Try to clear the air. Uh, no, not now. I’m going to have to get back to you.

Please, continue. Um, okay. Uh, your tests came back normal. Oh, thank God! Just one exception. You’re pregnant, Chanel.

Melinda, I’m telling you, it actually worked. I finally got through to Leo. Combination of things, really. Most being how focused he is on having Dimitri come back home. Yeah, I checked with the courts. That SOB should be returning very soon. And Leo’s just happy to have him back. Wants to celebrate. A fresh start.

Which means I think they’d be open to leaving Salem and never coming back. Me too. I think it’s gonna be okay. It is. Oh, the new Saxton’s catalog. Excellent. Let’s see. Junk. Junk. Garbage. No thank you. And Ah! Ah, bestow my heart, it’s a letter from Dimitri.

Dear Leo, by the time you receive this letter, I will I will be gone. Off on a new adventure.

With someone I met during my time inside. Someone very special.

I did care deeply about you, Leo, but I now realize that we weren’t right for each other. And this man I fell in love with is perfect for me and I for him. I know you’ll be hurt, but I hope once you get over your heartache, you can be happy for me. I also hope that someday you find the perfect love as I have.

Goodbye forever, Leo. You’re Matthew Perry, a. k. a. Dimitri.

You got a job here too? Freelance photography. I’m tired of all of it. Wow, that is almost spooky. Wow, and you are This is my first day. Uh, well, I am the Spectator’s newest ace reporter. Wow. Wow. I cannot believe you’re going to be working here too. Mysterious ways, as always. Huh. Oh, good. Both here. You’re going to do this for HR, Eric.

Um, and uh, IT’s going to get you set up. Both of you set up on servers today because I already have an idea for an assignment. That was fast. It’s no time like the present. Uh, you’re going to be working on it together. So, I think it’s going to be a good solid way to get you guys started.

Paulina hung up on me, dammit. Oof. How dare she? Who does she think she is? Couple of obvious answers to that. This disrespect will not stand if Mad Price wants a war. She’s got one.

Pregnant? Well, we use protection. I mean, I know it’s not always 100 percent effective, but Oh my god, John. Wow. I, I, I mean, I, I, I can’t I mean, this is amazing news, right?

Kayla, what is it? Well, based on HGC numbers and the timing of your last menstrual cycle, we are placing you at about four to five weeks along, Chanel. And although it seems that you do not have radiation poisoning, The first few weeks of a pregnancy are crucial for the proper development of a fetus’s major organs.

So something could be wrong with our baby? Well, we’re going to consider this a high risk pregnancy. So I would like you to make an appointment with your OBGYN immediately. But we will continue to monitor your health and the baby’s health through the whole pregnancy. So, how long will it be before we know that the baby’s okay?

Well, it could be a few weeks, or it could be after the baby’s born. And then everything could be perfectly fine. But we just have no way of knowing at this point, and I really wish we did.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Billy: Hi.

Abby: Hi. Thank you for meeting me.

Billy: Of course. I can’t turn down an invitation from my favorite niece.

Abby: Hmm. Even though I didn’t vote the way you would’ve liked at the board meeting about daniel’s lawsuit?

Billy: I don’t think it’s in the best interest to get into a legal battle at this time with chancellor-winters. But that’s business, right? Although it does get a little tricky when you mix corporate politics and family politics. I’m sure that was a little uncomfortable for you.

Abby: Well, I’m not a rookie at this. And I have maintained my seat on the jabot board despite any family conflicts, and I’ve enjoyed it. Yes, it may get complicated, but that’s part of the fun, right?

Billy: It definitely is. I take it that was your first board vote alongside a romantic partner? It’s a whole new ballgame, isn’t it?

Nate: So, are lily and abby joining us?

Devon: Not this time.

Nate: Oh. Well, this seems to be a little more serious than a casual drink with my cousin.

Devon: Yeah. Yeah. That’s, um– it’s as serious as it gets. ‘Cause I need to know that I can trust you.

Nikki: [ Slurring ] Uh, victor? Victor? Jack? Lauren? Jack? Oh, can’t you people stop calling me? Can I have one damn moment of peace? I mean, is that so much to ask?

[ Grunts ]

[ Sighs ] That bitch is finally dead. I deserve this. I earned it.

[ Cell phone buzzes ] God, who now? Oh… well, victor again. “I’ve been trying to reach you. “Where are you?” Right where I wanna be. Yep.

[ Exhales ] Right where I wanna be.

[ Both laughing ]

Ashley: I’m having more fun than I have had in ages.

Alan: Well, maybe you should get out more often.

Ashley: Well, that is the truth. I hate to use this pun, but you are just what the doctor ordered, doctor.

Alan: Even though your brother and sister want me to–

Ashley: Examine me? Oh, yeah. Examine away. I’m an open book. Could we get through all the boring things, though, and get down to the good stuff? Especially if there’s a happy ending involved.

Alan: Your voice.

Ashley: What– what about it?

Alan: Well, it’s just, uh– there’s something different about it. Like, I can’t quite put my finger on it.

Ashley: I find that when I’m in france… [ Laughs ] … I tend to speak more carefully and more distinctly. You know? I get back into the good ol’ usa, and back comes the american accent. It’s kind of like taking off a too-tight high heel and putting something more comfortable on.

Alan: Well, it’s, uh, very charming.

Ashley: Ah, thank you. Almost out of bubbles.

Alan: Oh, no.

Ashley: Do you wanna order another one?

Alan: Ah, hmm…

Ashley: What do you think?

Alan: I’m not sure it’S…

Ashley: Uh…

Jack: I hope I’m not interrupting.

Ashley: What are you doing here? I didn’t think diane let you out after dark.

Jack: I was working late. I thought I might drop by for a drink.

Ashley: Ugh. Liar, liar, pants on fire. Traci snitched on me, and now you’re here to wreck my date. Try killing bugs the worry-free way.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Jack: You must be ashley’s friend, alan.

Alan: Alan laurent.

Ashley: Yeah, this is my brother, jack.

Alan: Oh! Yes, jack. Nice to meet you.

Jack: Hope it was an easy flight.

Alan: It was. Thank you very much for the ticket.

Jack: How long you visiting genoa city?

Alan: Uh, not long. I’m guest lecturing at a psychology convention next week. I’ll be due in vienna, so…

Ashley: Unless I can talk you out of going. People tell me I’m pretty good at getting what I want.

Alan: Of that, I have no doubt. Would you like to join us?

Ashley: Oh, don’t feel obligated.

Jack: Thank you. I think I will. So, ashley has kept you under wraps. I know you’re friends, but not much more. How long have you two known each other? When did you meet?

Ashley: Go ahead. Why don’t you tell that story?

Alan: No, I think you would do it justice.

Ashley: Well, damn. Nobody told me there was gonna be a pop quiz.

Abby: Yes, serving on the board alongside devon is different, but I’m up for the challenge.

Billy: No doubt about that. It does have its benefits, of course.

Abby: Do I like where this is going?

Billy: Look, I just mean that I’m not devon’s favorite person right now, so I’m sure he knows I’d be a little reluctant to sit down with him and break bread. So maybe that’s why we’re here. Maybe you’re here to deliver a peace offering. Or maybe it’s a warning.

Abby: I’m gonna try not to be offended, because you clearly don’t think I have a mind of my own.

Billy: That’s not how I meant that.

Abby: But because you are my favorite uncle, I’m gonna let it slide. The fact is, devon does not know I’m meeting with you tonight.

Billy: That’s interesting. Under the radar. Why’s that?

Abby: I just wanna give you a heads up.

Billy: So this is a warning?

Abby: No, it’s not a warning. I’m just– I’m concerned. I care about you and devon very much, and I don’t like where I sense this is going.

Devon: I’m worried about a situation that could be a threat to the company, and it concerns lily.

Nate: Lily?

Devon: Yeah.

Nate: Wow. For a second there, I thought you were about to say billy.

Devon: Well, that’s who I’m talking about. Billy is the threat. ‘Cause you and I both know that he’s been trying to flex his power around the office lately, and I feel like it’s a part of his agenda right now to get close to lily and get her to side with him.

Nate: How do you know that? Do you have proof?

Devon: I don’t have anything concrete. It’s just something I picked up on between the two of them that I felt before, and I can usually trust my gut.

Nate: But that’s not a lot to go on, no matter how strong a gut feeling you have. And this is lily we’re talking about here.

Devon: Right. It’s not just that, though. There’s more. She’s upset with me because of the fact that I knew what was going on between daniel and heather while she was out of town, and I didn’t say anything.

Nate: Ah. So she was hurt and upset when she realized it.

Devon: Yeah.

Nate: But, again, lily isn’t the type to hold grudges. And you did vote with her to fight daniel’s lawsuit.

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Nate: I don’t see what you have to be worried about.

Devon: I’m worried that i can’t count on her vote anymore. And that if she keeps siding with billy and jill on everything, I’m gonna lose all say in my own company.

Nate: Okay, so what do you wanna do about it?

Devon: I wanna figure out how to get billy out of the company.

If you have chronic

kidney disease you can reduce

Nate: Trying to oust billy? That’s a big move. Jill will raise hell.

Devon: Not if it’s done right. And I’m starting to get to the point where I feel like we don’t have a choice, nate.

Nate: Um, so figuring out how to work together isn’t an option?

Devon: Why would I want to? I mean, really, you’ve witnessed firsthand how he is. He challenges every single thing that I have to say, and the only thing he cares about is putting his family stamp on the company. There’s nothing productive about having him with us.

Nate: Don’t take this the wrong way, but I’m wondering if your concern is more personal than for the good of the company.

Devon: And why would you say that?

Nate: Well, you’re upset with billy because he’s challenging you, challenging your authority, authority you wanna hold on to.

Devon: You know, though, that I’ve built this company, half the company, from the ground up with neil. So I’ve earned that authority. What’s billy done? What does he do besides waltz in and out at chancellor-winters whenever he wants and make demands and think that he’s due respect that he hasn’t earned? Nobody wants to work with somebody like that. And if nothing changes in regards to him being there, I’m gonna have to really start thinking about pulling myself out altogether and taking half of the company with me.

Nate: What? You’d really go that far?

Devon: I absolutely would if I was pushed to it. This is about me being worried that billy is getting to lily. ‘Cause if that happens, everything we built could fall apart.

Nate: Why would you think that? Lily’s allegiance has always been to her family. Unless you don’t trust your own sister?

Abby: Look, billy, I don’t know how this is gonna play out. But I don’t think it’s gonna be pretty. And you and devon are the eye of the storm.

Billy: Look, abby, we butt heads. Okay, but that’s business. We’re not gonna agree on everything. We don’t have to agree on everything.

Abby: I get that. But this seems personal.

Billy: Why do you say that?

Abby: Devon seems to think that you’re making power plays to try to gain more control of chancellor-winters.

Billy: Did he say that?

Abby: And I told him of course not. But, billy, I need to know the truth. What are you really wanting out of chancellor-winters?

Ashley: We were two americans in paris, and we met at a café.

Alan: It was a museum, actually.

Ashley: The louvre.

Alan: The d’orsay.

Ashley: I know. [ Laughs ] We were looking at a monet.

[ Alan clears throat ]

Alan: It was a van gogh.

Ashley: And you were there all by yourself, just looking at the paintings and just–

Alan: Actually, I was there with a colleague. We’d just come from the office.

Ashley: Her name was antoinette.

Alan: His name was jean-claude.

Ashley: Of course, I recall. You know– you know, that whole day just kind of pales in comparison of meeting my– my dear friend, alan.

Jack: Well, that’s some story.

Ashley: And I am still so blessed that I can call you my friend.

Alan: It’s nice to catch up.

Ashley: It really is.

Jack: Well, it’s good you’re here, alan. I won’t interrupt your evening anymore. I hope to see you before you leave for europe.

Alan: I look forward to it. Your brother’s very charming.

Ashley: No, he isn’T. That was a fishing expedition. He’s dying for an update about my mental capacity, or lack thereof. So how am I doing, doctor?

Nikki: [ Slurring ] Why can’t you people just leave me alone? I’m so sick of it. Sick of it. The way you all look at me. “Poor nikki. “So brave. “So strong. “So drunk. “And so weak. “Can’t trust her, though. “Don’t trust her, she’ll make “everything worse. “And so stupid.” It’s all my fault. All my fault.

Nikki: I– I– I shouldn’T. I need… I need jack. I need help. Ah…

[ Exhales ] Victor? Victor, are you here? Victor? Oh, thank god you’re here.

Victor: Wait, wait, wait. Who the hell allowed you on the ranch? How did you get in here?

Nikki: What?

Victor: Get out! You didn’t live this strong,

Nikki: Get out? What are you talking about?

Victor: I will call security if you don’t get out right now.

Nikki: No, no, no, don’t– don’t do it like this. I– I– give me another chance.

Victor: What do you mean, another chance? I’ve given you more chances than one can shake your fist at!

Nikki: I’ll stop drinking, I promise.

Victor: You’re drunk right now!

Nikki: No, I’m not.

Victor: You’re lying.

Nikki: Victor, please…

Victor: Why don’t you go see jack abbott? Your sponsor. Your savior. The man I detest. Is that why you brought him on?

Nikki: You know it’s not.

Victor: And then you brought jordan into our lives.

Nikki: Well, I– I–

Victor: Didn’t you?

Nikki: I didn’t mean for that to happen.

Victor: And you know what happened, right? She traumatized our great-grandson. And who knows what our granddaughter’s going through right now. She may be fighting for her life! You did that!

Victoria: Mom!

Nick: What are you doing here?

Nikki: Please. Please talk to your father. Tell him how sorry I am. He’ll listen to you.

Nick: You’re sorry?

Victoria: You think sorry is enough? After the hell you’ve put our family through?

Alan: There is no diagnosis, ashley. You and I are friends, just like we were in paris.

Ashley: Right. But there’s an agenda.

Alan: Look, your family’s worried about you. All right? Just like you were concerned about your memories around tucker, and we talked it through then, and I believe it helped. Maybe we can do the same now. You know? So I– I would love to spend some time with you and, uh… you know, just go over what’s on your mind.

Ashley: Okay. Well, um… we don’t have to get another bottle here. We could go somewhere else. I happen to know a lovely little jazz club that is in the hotel that you’re staying in. It’ll almost remind you of paris.

Alan: Hmm. That does sound tempting.

Ashley: Okay, say yes.

Alan: Unfortunately, the jet lag is kicking in. I’m gonna have to call it a night.

Ashley: How about since you don’t know anything about this city, I escort you back to your hotel, okay?

Alan: Sounds lovely.

Ashley: Okay.

Alan: Allow me.

Ashley: Thank you.

Billy: What I want is for chancellor-winters to be as successful as it possibly can. And I want my mother’s position, her contribution, and her legacy to be represented.

Abby: Devon respects jill very much, and he knows how valuable she is to the company.

Billy: Oh, sure, as long as he doesn’t have to publicly acknowledge it beyond a pat on the back.

Abby: That’s unfair.

Billy: What I think is unfair is that my entire focus has been on what’s best for this company. It’s devon that is taking it personal, as if everything I’m doing to help this company is a direct competition to his kingdom.

Abby: That’s a bit harsh, don’t you think?

Billy: Abby, devon’s mo has always been complete autonomy, okay? And given the corporate structure of this company, it’s not conducive to that. Yeah, have I shaken things up a little bit since coming here? Have I challenged his authority here and there? Maybe. But it’s been for good reason. And now, I’m the newest threat to his control.

Abby: Well, devon thinks you want complete autonomy. So that’s the problem. How do I fix this? How do I facilitate a truce between two of my favorite guys so you can work together?

Billy: I hate to break it to you, but I think we’re past the point of hugging it out.

Devon: I trust lily. Completely. Billy’s the one I have a problem with. All right? ‘Cause I know that those two have a history together, and I know that she’s vulnerable right now because of what daniel just put her through. She’s probably trying to figure out who she can trust, and billy is right there whispering in her ear.

Nate: But wouldn’t she be looking for absolute stability? Meaning family. Instead of someone like billy, who’s let her down how many times now?

Devon: That makes sense, yeah. You’d think so. But like I said, she’s vulnerable. And billy knows this, and he’s gonna use it.

Nate: Against you?

Devon: Okay, I’m the one he doesn’t like. Yes.

Nate: Look… have you ever considered that maybe you’re overreacting?

Devon: No, I haven’T. Why, do you think I’m being paranoid?

[ Nate sighs ] Okay. I mean… uh… I don’t even know what to say. Maybe this is what billy wants. He wants us to turn on each other.

Nate: No, I– I’m not turning on you, devon. I’m just stating an opinion that’s different from yours.

[ Sighs ] I wonder what neil would think about all this infighting. Who was more about family than your father?

Devon: I completely agree. Which is why all I’m trying to do, and all I’ve ever tried to do, is protect this family’s legacy through the company. And I think that we need to be prepared to fight if it comes to that. So I’m just asking if I can count on you.

Nate: Well, you’re doubting lily, and you’ve gone back to questioning my loyalty. So if this is the direction things are headed in, and billy’s the cause, well, I agree with you on one thing. We have to get abbott out of the company. This skinny pop is amazing.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Chance: Take it I wasn’t supposed to hear that.

Devon: We don’t mind you hearing what we said. We’re not keeping any secrets. And I know where your loyalty lies.

Chance: Oh, you do, huh?

Devon: Yeah.

Chance: Okay, well, what happened to loyalty to chancellor-winters, devon? Because that’s where my loyalty lies. I don’t know about you, but this infighting, this petty, personal bull that’s going on, I want nothing to do with it. So if you want to let me go for having an opinion that you don’t like, I will gladly pack up my office now.

Devon: Nobody’s saying that at all. Not at all. I think that you just– you’re not understanding what’s at stake.

Chance: It mostly sounds like your egos.

Nate: I’m with chance on this. One way or another, we have to stop turning on each other. The only way we can help chancellor-winters shine is to get past this conflict and work as a united front.

Devon: Okay. I will– I’m a little confused now ’cause of what you’re saying. I feel like I can count on you about as much as billy can count on chance.

Billy: Devon wants to run this company on his own, the way he always has been. He’s not interested in working together for the greater good.

Abby: Chancellor-winters has been very successful.

Billy: It has been. Maybe despite devon, but not because of him, okay? Time and time again, he’s proven he doesn’t wanna work together. He sees any sort of disagreement, any sort of difference of opinion, as a mutiny. We can’t stand for that if we want chancellor-winters to see its full potential.

Abby: It sounds like you want devon out. Would you actually do that?

Nikki: Darling, you don’t mean that.

Victoria: Why did you let her in?

Nikki: Are you turning on me too?

Victoria: I may never see claire again because of you.

Nikki: I– I was just trying to help.

Victoria: You only pretended to accept her.

Nikki: No, I did accept her.

Victoria: You blamed claire for getting you hooked on alcohol again and this mess that you’ve become.

Nikki: That is not true.

Victoria: Then you whine that it’s everyone else’s fault, that you’re a drunk, but it’s what you’ve always been. It’s who you’ve always been.

Nikki: Nicholas, you know that that’s not true. Please tell her. Tell your father.

Nick: You made my daughter’s life hell. She almost lost her son because of you. He’s barely speaking because of you.

Nikki: I’ll talk to summer. I’ll explain it to her.

Nick: Mom, she doesn’t wanna see you ever again, and neither do I.

Nikki: What?

Victor: Why are you doing this to our children?

Nikki: I– I– I just wanna fix things.

Victor: Some things can’t be fixed.

Nikki: Please, just let– let me make things right.

Victoria: The only way that you can make things right is to stop embarrassing yourself. If you don’t call security, I’m going to.

Nikki: Nicholas. Nicholas, please.

Nick: Mom, you brought this on yourself.

Nikki: Why are you doing this? We’re family.

Nick: Because you’re a drunk.

Nikki: And– and I wanna get sober. You know I do, but I– I can’t do it alone. I need you.

Nick: Mom, we’ve given you every chance imaginable!

Nikki: This time is different.

Victoria: It’s not gonna be different than any other time. We have offered to help you, but you’ve always been too proud, too strong.

Victor: The only support you ever wanted is jack abbott’s support. I came to you many times. You pushed me away. You accused me of hovering over you. Didn’t you?

Nikki: Well, jack is– is my sponsor–

Victor: I don’t give a damn what he is. I can’t stand the guy. You ran to him every time.

Nikki: But, darling, I love you.

Victor: You disgust me.

Nikki: Please don’t say that.

Victor: You reap what you sow! Live with it!

Nikki: But, victor, please–

Victor: Get the hell out of here! I can’t stand looking at you! Out!

Ashley: I swear.

Alan: Okay, murders, uh, kidnapping, and an explosion. That’s quite the history this hotel has. And all those scandals. Are you sure you didn’t make some of that up?

Ashley: I am. And I may have participated in one or two, but I’ll never tell.

Alan: Your secrets are safe with me.

Ashley: Are they?

Alan: This– this is me. I assume no scandals happened here.

Ashley: Not yet.

Alan: Ashley, I do miss hanging out with you.

Ashley: Yeah?

Alan: You are more entertaining than ever.

Ashley: Entertaining? I was going for irresistible.

Alan: Oh.

Ashley: And, um, I bet you have one or two champagne splits in your minibar that have corks that are just dying to be popped. I’ll behave myself. I’ll even take a peek at your inkblots.

Alan: I would be terrible company.

Ashley: Not possible.

Alan: I promise I will be good as new in the morning.

Ashley: Okay. Well, then I am officially inviting you for breakfast. You can’t say no.

Alan: I wouldn’t think of it. Mwah. Mwah. A demain.

Alan: Jack?

Jack: Look, I’m sorry for the intrusion, but I have to ask. How does my sister seem to you?

Dupixent helps people with

asthma breathe

Alan: I just have to spend more time with ashley before I can give you any real insight as to what’s going on. But there is definitely a different dynamic coming from her than I am used to seeing.

Jack: In what way?

Alan: Well, I mean, ashley is very sophisticated, brilliant. Wry, cool as a cucumber. Today, she’s flirtatious and bubbly, completely out of character. On the other hand, she is, uh, recovering from a broken heart and the trauma of a breakup, and maybe this is her way of handling the stress that she’s been going through.

Jack: Stress may be the underlying problem here, but believe me, there is more than one dynamic at play here.

Alan: Yes, traci told me about that as well, that ashley’s behaving like a teenager at times.

Jack: Young, impetuous, overly earnest.

Alan: But the commanding, more aggressive personality is coming forward as well.

Jack: These days we have no idea which ashley we’re gonna get.

Alan: Well, eventually I’m sure we’ll get to the bottom of it, but like I said, it’s not gonna happen overnight.

Jack: Ashley leaves the house these days, I’m scared. Will she return? She admits to losing time, where she was, how she got there, what she’s done. One minute she’s ready to go to therapy, the next she runs away.

Alan: Yeah, well, that kind of inner conflict is really not that unusual.

Jack: Listen, I have been so desperate to do something, anything, I have actually considered committing her to treatment. What kind of brother does that?

Alan: One who cares. All right? You were trying to help. It is a normal reaction.

Jack: Ashley deserves to live a normal, healthy life. Look, I– I saw how comfortable she was with you, and I gotta say, it gives me a lot of hope.

Alan: I promise you I will do my best.

Ashley: Now, where’s the tequila? What kind of a bar is this anyway? No tequila? Well, that’s no bar at all. Now, what the hell are you doing here?

Ms. Abbott: I’m getting stronger every day.

Belle: Oh, yeah, I can tell. I like your jewelry.

Ms. Abbott: How could you be so stupid? Botching that story of how you first met alan?

Belle: I did just fine.

Ms. Abbott: Well, the hell you did.

Belle: I played it like it was a game. Alan played along, he enjoyed himself, I could tell.

Ms. Abbott: And the entire time he was taking notes. And there you were. Hi, I’m just a bubble-headed idiot. Oh, please, kind sir, won’t you please pour me some more champagne so I can screw this whole thing up even more?

Belle: It was a date. That could lead to something wonderful for ashley.

Ms. Abbott: It wasn’t a date, you moron. It was a psych evaluation over drinks. He’s looking for information so he can take us all down!

Victor: You disgust me!

Nick: You are a drunk.

Victoria: You whine that it’s all their fault that you’re a drunk. But it’s what you’ve always been. It’s who you’ve always been.

Victor: You get the hell out of this house! You get the hell away from all of us!

Nikki: No. My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis held me back…

Nate: You absolutely can trust me to be on board with whatever’s best for chancellor-winters.

Chance: And I second that. I can be counted on when it matters. But when it comes to the bickering, I’m out.

Devon: Okay. And I– I understand that, gentlemen. I get completely where you both are coming from. But my bottom line is, I don’t think billy belongs at the company.

Chance: Okay, so this isn’t about what’s best for the company. It is personal.

Devon: No, that’s not true. It’s both. It’s always both. But since my name’s on the company, it’s always gonna be personal. It’s as personal as it gets. And as the ceo of the winters side of the company, I don’t want billy to be a part of it. And you can let him know that if you like.

Chance: I’m not your messenger.

Devon: I didn’t mean it that way, all right? I’m just saying, I’m not gonna slink around and talk about people behind their backs the way billy abbott does. He can know. In fact, I’m sure he already does know that I don’t want him there.

Abby: Chancellor-winters means everything to devon. He built the winters part with neil. It’s devon’s legacy. It’s my son’s legacy. And you wanna take that away from him?

Billy: Abby, I understand all that, okay? And I’m not trying to push devon out. I simply wanna make a little bit of room at the table.

Abby: You know, I wish I believed you, billy. I really do. But I don’T.

Jack: Given your background, your history with ashley, it gives me a lot of hope.

Alan: Well, I’ll– I’ll do whatever I can.

Jack: Listen, I won’t take up any more of your time. Thank you for indulging me.

Alan: Well, we all want the same thing. Ashley healthy.

Jack: I could not be more grateful that you are here. Hopefully, ashley won’t do another disappearing act or something more troubling.

Ashley: You are just blowing everything out of proportion. And you refuse to see the danger you are putting us all in.

Belle: Please. I have half a mind to jump on that jet with that very handsome doctor, go to paris and never look back.

Ms. Abbott: No. You can’t do that.

Belle: I don’t know why not.

Ms. Abbott: I’ll tell you why. Because you’re gonna find yourself in a situation that you can’t flirt yourself out of.

Belle: Huh! And what are they gonna do? They’re gonna commit me just because I couldn’t get one silly story straight?

Ms. Abbott: This wasn’t just one story. They’re building a case against us. You were being tested. And you failed.

Belle: Says you. You forget. I have a plan.

Ms. Abbott: Dating the doctor is not a plan.

Belle: Neither’s killing tucker.

Ms. Abbott: I see what you’re doing. You just want an excuse to party. Guess what? It’s over now.

Belle: Well, I got news for you. I’m a lover. Not a fighter. And I’m not gonna stand by and let you ruin our lives.

[ Chuckles ]

Ashley: It always comes back to me. I have to do everything on my own. I’m the only one that knows how to get things done.

[ Sighs ] Hmm.

[ Door opens ]

Nikki: Ah. Uh. No!

Jack: Nikki?

Nikki: No!

Jack: Nikki?

Nikki: Go away!

Jack: Come, nikki,

Nikki: No, go, get out!

Jack: Let me in, nikki! Nikki!

Nikki: Go away, jack!

Jack: I’m not going anywhere. Let me in!

Nikki: Go away.

Jack: Nikki, don’t make me do this.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

thanks for coming by. All right, my man. Okay, so are we talking about aurora’s potential move into wellness and fitness? Oh, it’s not potential anymore. We’re doing it. Yep. My people ran the numbers. We’re doing a dual launch — an online lifestyle website. We’re doing brick and mortar. The flagship gym is gonna be right here in port charles. It’s gonna be huge. All we need is somebody to run the division. So are you interested? I need you to get a cbc. Can you also get a cmp and a ct scan? Excuse me. Can I leave this for nurse baldwin? She’s expecting it. I’ll be sure she gets it. Thank you. Aiden. Weren’t you gonna say hello? Scott, you have to help us. Lucy insists on being the on-air pitchwoman for deception. Ah, for crying out loud, maxie. You know lucy. She gets one whiff of fame, and she’s off to the races. There’s no stopping her. We have to because “home & heart” said they’re not gonna give us another spot if lucy insists on being on camera. Well, I can threaten to sue, but it would be a bluff. It’s their show. They can put on who they want. No, no, we do not want another lawsuit. We want to sell our products. And if we lose this opportunity, we lose exposure, which translates to lost sales. So please just talk to her. Maybe convince her we need someone else to — you would not believe all the people staring at me as I walked through the lobby. You know, it’s so gratifying. Although I am just a very humble working gal, but I have thousands of followers. And I can’t even tell you. I couldn’t be specific. As I walked through the door, I added that much…more. Hi. Did you see my post? So many likes. I rest my case. So nice. Thank you guys for having me over for breakfast. Yeah. I’m so surprised the little one is so quiet. It was practically kicking field goals yesterday. Field goals? Sorry we missed it. Yeah. Me too. He or she is probably just… well, sleeping now ’cause they tired themselves out. Mm. Yeah. Are you? Sleeping, that is? Yeah. Usually, I manage about six or seven hours a night. Never less than five. Why? Well, molly mentioned you stopped by pretty late the other night. After A…fight.

[ Knocking ] May I help you? Yes. I’m sorry to just show up in your doorway, but your assistant wasn’t at her desk. Oh, if this is about the editorial… no. No. I’m natalia ramirez. I’m alison’s mom, kristina’s friend. Ah. Yes, of course. Come on in. I’m sorry. I know you’re a busy woman. As am I. I just thought that it was time that we met. Absolutely. Nice to meet you. I’ve heard a lot about you. Nice to meet you. Yeah, I’m sure you have. Probably not all of it good. Am I right?


Kristina and i had a — had a bumpy start because when I first met her, she was in alison’s bed, which was a surprise, as you can imagine, and I had no idea. That they were together? No, no clue to the nature of their attachment. I understand that blaze hadn’t come out to you yet, and I’m hoping it wasn’t too much of a surprise. Please. Well, ms. Davis… uh, call me alexis. Oh. Great. Thank you. Please call me natalia. So… mm. Oh, you know, I had the pleasure of meeting kristina’s father. You met sonny? Ah. He didn’t tell me. Mm-hmm. Yeah. And from what he said, it sounded like you two have a really good relationship. Did he say that? Oh. And I know kristina’s really close to her dad. She is, very close. Kristina loves her family. Well, that’s obvious. Especially since she’s carrying her sister’s baby. Tj, I told you kristina came over around midnight. She just wanted to talk. Yeah, I was pretty worked up, which I know isn’t good for the baby, and just needed some sister time. No one calms me down like molly. These hormones are no joke. And as for the fight, josslyn apologized and we worked things out. Yeah. Mind if I ask what the argument was about? Just josslyn being josslyn, you know? Complaining about my dad. Did sonny do something we’re all gonna hear about? No. No, nothing like that. No, no, no. It’s just, ever since carly and my dad broke up, josslyn totally turned on my dad, and she’s always saying negative things about my dad, whether they’re true or not. In this instance, though, it turned out to be true. I’m sorry. But, you know, parents are human. Sometimes they disappoint us. Family rifts are difficult. It’s one more reason to be careful. Careful? About keeping you safe. Even if that means keeping you away from that side of your family. I dropped off the cupcakes you wanted for amy’s birthday. Oh, thank you. Everyone is going to love them. What do I owe you? We can settle at home. My free period’s almost over. I need to head back to school. Tell amy “happy birthday.” Um [Chuckles] Are you forgetting something? Am I? Uh, can you give your mom a hug? Mm. Wait. What is this? Why is there paint on your backpack? That’s why I wanted you from the very beginning. You’ve got experience in management. You’ve got incredible talent for leadership. You’ve got practical knowledge in the fitness industry. You’d be able to tailor everything to meet our customers. I really hope that you consider being on board. This is? Well, that’s the official offer. Your proposed salary, stock options, benefits, a whole slew of perks, and, of course, your stake in the company. Just take a look and let me know what you think. I’ll do that. Drew, you know this is gonna be a huge change to my life. I get that. It’s a huge change for aurora, too. That’s why I want you at the helm. There is nobody that I trust more than you to take charge. Nina: I completely agree with that. Take charge of what?


Oh, right, that happened in art class. I wasn’t looking where I put my backpack. Maybe it’ll wash out. Well, maybe, but that’s a lot of paint, aiden. Or I can just switch to one of cam’s old backpacks. He left, like, six of them. And last week, you came home with paint in your hair. Mom, it’s art class. There’s a lot of paint. I [Sighs] I got to go.

[ Breathes deeply ] Rumor has it that aiden made cupcakes for amy’s birthday. Yeah. Please don’t tell me they’re just for nurses, only because I want one. I know what an excellent baker your son is. Yes, he is. Alison told me about kristina’s pregnancy. It is a brave new world out there, isn’t it? Yes, it is. It continues to be. My daughter molly was having fertility problems. Oh. Really struggling to have a family, and kristina wanted to help her out. They love each other, and I’m very proud of them. Yeah, of course, you’d be. But you know that their choices present some complications for kristina and alison. Oh. How so? Well, pregnancy in and of itself is a complication. It’s a disruption in a woman’s life, in a couple’s life. And that’s under the happiest of circumstances. I was under the impression that blaze was nothing but supportive. Oh, yeah, she is, of course. That’s my allie. But there’s also public perception to consider. Natalia… I am very happy to meet you, and I’m so glad that you came by, but I can see that this might be more than a meet and greet. So if there is something on your mind, please feel free to share that. Good. I’m really glad that you are open to an honest discussion because I’m concerned for my daughter. She thinks she’s entitled to a private life, but as blaze, that can’t happen. Yeah, the cost of fame. Your point being? Two women seen out together, one of them pregnant. People are bound to ask whose baby it is, and most people are just gonna assume that it’s theirs. I’m not sure why that would be anyone else’s business.

[ Sighs ] Alexis, you run a newspaper. You have a gossip column. If the girls are out and somebody shoots a picture of them together and posts it, I mean, you know more than anybody that one photo can change somebody’s life for better or for worse. If you’re referring to my father, I have no intention of staying away from him. I love him very much, and he always has my support. Okay, I understand that, but I also know that my uncle curtis was just shot from simply being in the same vicinity as sonny. So all I’m suggesting is that you keep some distance during the pregnancy. I’ve made it crystal clear that this baby’s well-being is my top priority, tj. You have. And we appreciate that. I’ve been eating healthy. I’ve been taking my vitamins. I’m staying hydrated. I’m going to all of my doctor’s appointments. I’ve even paused working at the corinthos-davis center for this pregnancy. I am taking extremely good care of myself. And seeing my friends and my family, that’s included in that. I don’t think separating myself from them is necessary or healthy. If you’ll excuse me, I have a full day ahead of me. No, kristina, please don’t go. No, really, I should — I should get going because I would hate to have to rush or get home past my bedtime. You’ve barely touched your breakfast. I know how to feed myself. I do manage a restaurant. I love you. Really, tj? What was that all about? Curtis and I were discussing an upcoming project, nina. Does that mean that you’d be joining the aurora family? I’m working on it. Yeah, we just started discussing all the details. You see, that’s great. As you know, you just don’t jump on the first offer. Drew is a very smooth negotiator. If you shake on anything, make sure you count your fingers afterwards. I haven’t heard you complaining.

[ Sighs, chuckles ]

[ Breathing heavily ]

[ Sighs ] Well, you drive a hard bargain, drew. I’m just giving my good friend some sound advice. Curtis, before you get in bed with drew… …make sure you know what you’re getting into. And so what are you doing here? Oh, well, I came to talk to maxie. Really? Maxie, huh?

[ Whispering ] You know, you don’t need an excuse if you really just want to see me.

[ Normal voice ] I’ll tell you what. Why don’t we go to my office, and we can watch a replay of my segment on “home & heart”? Um, I-I don’t think that’s a good idea. No, it’s a great idea. I know. No. I know I did really well. I did. It’s just that I thought maybe I could take notes on my performance, hone my craft a little bit, you know? There’s always room for improvement. I’ve been reading up on marilyn monroe. She studied with lee strasberg. That method acting technique says you should infuse your own experiences, really, to make the audience feel what you’re — okay, lucy? The pitchwoman for deception is not supposed to be acting. They’re supposed to be selling. And they do that by projecting sincerity and approachability. The audience needs to feel like this person is a friend whose recommendations they trust so when the pitchwoman says, “deception’s disruptor nourishing cream really refreshens your complexion,” the audience believes them. And they buy the product. Right. But the first thing the pitchwoman has to do is actually mention the product! I agree. Of course. That’s why I still think that my name should be in the title for our new skin care line. Like lucy’s luminous skin serum. Or lucy’s luminous luscious lotion. Which do you like? I actually can’T. Please stop this madness and just tell her. What? Tell me what? Uh, lucy… um, your appearance on the “home & heart” show… …it was a disaster.

[ Gasps ]


Disaster?! I was an unqualified success. It was a dumpster fire. Maxie, go easy on her. Someone has to tell her the truth.

[ Sighs ] The tru– the truth?! The truth is, is I completely crushed it. And — and wait, I have all the comments right here to prove it. Lucy, you talked about yourself on live tv for a solid hour. You recapped your greatest successes, real and imaginary. You barely mentioned our product or deception. You were clearly there to sell yourself. I am deception. I created deception, and deception’s my baby. And our audience knows that. Okay, yes, you have a following, but that does not automatically translate to sales. You were there to introduce our new face cream, not inflate your own ego.

[ Gasps ] That’s just rude. No, rude was how you were constantly trying to one-up haven. That’s because of haven! She is jealous of me, and she can’t stand the competition. Haven calls the shots. She wants sales, not self-promotion. Exactly. And the bottom line is, haven is a businesswoman, and she will forget all the envy and anything about me because the sales are skyrocketing, and it’s because of me. What are you doing? Tell her. Lucy, about those skyrocketing sales, okay? They are skyrocketing because of me because the numbers do not lie. You’re right — the sales are great. But they’re not because of you. Drew, you have given me a lot to think about. So, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll get right to it. I’ll look forward to hearing from you. Yeah. I’ll be in touch. Okay. Meanwhile… you two play nice. Nice to see you. Curtis is my friend. Mine, too. Yeah. So you say. He’s just getting back on his feet. I do not want you to take advantage of him. I’m not taking advantage of him. I’m offering him an opportunity that benefits both of us. It’s a wonder how you can keep all these plates spinning in the air without dropping one of them. I guess it’s just a talent of mine. Now, nina, what did you want to see me about? My daughter. I didn’t get a chance to ask why michael and willow were in your office yesterday before that…lapse of sanity overtook us again. “Lapse of sanity”? Is that what we’re calling it? Drew, I really want to know — why was willow here? Elizabeth. Is everything okay? I’m not sure. Aiden had pink paint on his backpack. He said he’d just set it down in the wrong place, but it looked like somebody deliberately did it to him. And last week, he came home with paint in his hair. It wasn’t a lot, but it definitely looked like somebody had flicked a paintbrush at him on purpose.

[ Groans ] And you’re worried about bullying. Well, yeah. I mean, it’s happened before when he was younger. So the thought’s definitely crossed my mind. But whatever is happening, he seems to want to just handle it himself. Yeah, but sometimes our kids think that they can handle it themselves, but they can’t really. I know, but I don’t want to hover. I know. Yeah. I get that. I hate that term — “helicopter mom.” Mm. It makes you feel like you’re second-guessing yourself when you’re concerned or involved in your children’s lives. There’s being concerned, and then there’s wanting to control your son’s life, and I just — I don’t know where this falls on the spectrum. Maybe you could chat with his counselor. Talk to his teachers, see what they know, what they don’t know. They see so much more than we do sometimes. At the end of the day, we just want what’s best for our kids, right? Moll. Moll. Come on. Talk to me. Trust me, you do not want to hear what I am thinking right now. Okay. Look, I get that you’re angry. No, I’m frustrated and disappointed, and I cannot for the life of me understand what you thought you were doing coming for kristina like that. I was thinking of our baby’s well-being. And kristina’s, too. Look, I commend her for living a healthy lifestyle and following the guidelines, but is it not common sense to want to stay out of the line of fire? Believe me, I have no illusions about sonny, but he is highly unlikely to put his pregnant daughter at risk. Tell that to my uncle curtis. Things happen. Okay. But let’s have a sense of proportion. We cannot ask my sister to stay away from her father. Yeah, well, I just did. Oh, and you saw how well that went. I expected pushback, molly, and I’m not sorry that I tried, and that’s not gonna stop me from speaking my mind to the woman carrying our child, even if she’s the daughter of a dangerous man. As a now-responsible journalist, I don’t really approve of policing social media sites. I mean, I think people have the right to think or say whatever they want, regardless of how despicable or ridiculous it is, as long as it’s within the law. That’s commendable — as a journalist. What about as a mother? Well, I would hate to see kristina or blaze dragged through the mud. I mean, that would be painful to see. On the other hand, i didn’t raise a shrinking violet, and I’m pretty certain you didn’t either. So I’m confident that they’d be able to weather whatever came at them. Well, that’s very supportive and sane… albeit a little idealistic, because I’m just more of a pragmatist, and I can’t help but recognize that the fallout for alison would be a lot different than for kristina. Hmm. How so? Isn’t it obvious? Alison is a star with a huge fan base and following, and kristina is — is a bartender.


If you have an issue with blaze’s public persona, then that is something you should probably take up with your daughter. I don’t really see how I can help you. Please, please, don’t misunderstand. I’m not disparaging kristina in any way. Natalia… I want to thank you so much for coming by, but I run a newspaper here and I’m getting a lot of calls coming in while we’re having this conversation. You never know what it’s gonna be breaking news. Of course. Again, thank you so much. I appreciate you stopping by. Well, I’m really glad we got a chance to finally meet and… yes. It’s always good to put a face to the person. Yeah. Well, have a nice day. Yeah. Diane, how dare you not be there when I need to vent? I just met blaze’s mother. And it wasn’t pretty. Kristina is doing something incredibly generous for us. She’s giving up nine months of her life to give us a child. The least we can do is not police her every move. I don’t like how you’re making me out to be some kind of control freak. Oh, what else would you call the constant questioning about what she eats, how much she’s sleeping, whether she can see her father until after her delivery date? Fine. If wanting the best for our baby makes me a control freak, then I will wear that as a badge of pride, molly. Great. Be proud of yourself. Just lay off kristina. Be proud of myself? I don’t think that it is unreasonable to want her to stay physically safe. It is if you drive her away. Then that’s on her. That’s not on me. Look, look, I understand that kristina’s hormonal, but taking off in a huff just because we’re asking questions, molly… I’m a doctor. Yes, but you’re not her doctor. You’re not even the baby’s doctor. If there were concerns, dr. Navarro would have raised them, but she hasn’T. Dr. Navarro is only evaluating kristina based on what she sees in front of her. She’s not factoring in her connection to sonny. And that’s a good thing because kristina has somewhere that she can feel safe and not judged. I’m not judging her. Aren’t you?

[ Sighs ] We’re supposed to be in this together. All three of us. We should have some say in how she is living her life. It’s our baby. I know this. But it is kristina’s life. We cannot monitor her every move. Right. Because she’s your sister. If we’d gone with a surrogate, in a few months from now, we’d have our baby with no strings attached, but now we — mm! No, go on. Say it. Now we’ll never get rid of her?

I love you hey. Not that I’m complaining — mwah — but why did I have to drop everything to come meet you here? I mean, all your text said was, “it’s nothing bad.”

[ Chuckles ] Well, you know, aside from wanting to see my beautiful wife, honey, I have a major decision, and I need you to weigh in. Okay, what kind of decision? Well, the savoy has been doing really well and I’m thinking about diversifying. Oh, like franchise or making it a brand? Yeah… the savoy is unique and I want to keep it that way. But it does involve branding. Drew and I have been talking about him wanting to move aurora into fitness and wellness. And so he’s starting a new division, and he wants me to head that division.

[ Chuckles ] I’m sorry. I guess I just wasn’t expecting anything like that. Wow. We had… yeah, preliminary meeting a few weeks ago. And he just now confirmed that they’re moving on, and they want me in charge. Babe… this is the kind of opportunity that only happens once. What do you think? Should I go for it? Okay. You want willow to go public with her medical history. I don’t know if that’s a great idea. She’d be talking about her leukemia and her lifesaving transplant. That could help a lot of people. And aurora is involved with this why? Wait, you think I’m making money off of this? You’re wrong. No, I’m working with a nonprofit who finds donor matches for stem cells and bone marrow. Willow’s story is so inspirational. She’d make such a great spokesperson. She could jump-start the whole project. And you presented all of this to willow like that? Absolutely. And I made it very clear that ultimately the decision’s up to her. Okay, I can’t ask for more than that. Thank you. By the way, I have rescheduled my interview with congressman mcconkey for this afternoon if you’re still interested in tagging along. I am. And not as your chauffeur. I’d like to meet him, and I’d like to have the chance to talk to him. That’s what I’m offering. And why so accommodating all of a sudden? What’s in it for you, nina?


I appreciate you, I mean, for including me. Um, but I’m not sure. You know, the savoy was your dream. But you seem really excited about this new endeavor. So I don’t really know if i should influence you either way. Honey, I’d still love your opinion. Okay. Well, you’re just now finally recovering, right? You’re literally getting back on your feet. And between the club and aurora, I just think you’re taking on way too much way too soon. Honey, the club doesn’t need my full-time attention anymore. My club, the savoy, it survived for months after I was shot and in recovery. I’m lucky to have great staff. N’neka is an absolute rock star. And I’ve been getting great help from my dad, chatting it up with the crowd and the musicians. Yeah… you know how much he loves that. Yeah. That’s what I’m saying. That’s kind of my point. The savoy, that was your dream, and you feel comfortable leaving it in other people’s hands? Well, honey, it’s not like I’m never gonna step foot in that place again. But you’ll have to split your time between the club and aurora. Okay. I will build time in my schedule to make sure that the savoy remains on track. You think selina wu is gonna respect your schedule? Because I think that she still wants to take the savoy. And what if she uses your absence to make her move? My social media blew up after I was on “h&H.” Blew up. Okay. Well, cyber buddies, and heart emojis don’t translate into cold, hard cash. And speaking of cold, hard cash, when you were on camera, we were way under our minimum of 300 units per minute. But as soon as sasha stepped in, we were hitting 650 per minute and on our way to selling out. Mm. Well, that’s because I laid the foundation, and my audience just waited until I was off the screen to start buying. That doesn’t make any sense. Why would your fans wait until you were finished to buy the product? Obviously, because they were enthralled, spellbound by my narrative. I mean, it’s a pretty incredible story, my long, hard road to my success. They listened. Okay. All right. Let’s say there are 1,000 diehard lucy fans who were hanging on your every word. There were 10,000 audience members who were waiting to change the channel until sasha stepped in and saved your bacon. Oh! So you’re giving sasha credit for all my sales?! They were my sales. Tell her. Tell her. Tell her. They were my sales. It was me. Tell her! Uh, humma, humma, humma, lucy. Don’t do that! Don’t “humma, humma, lucy” nothing! Listen to me. You were there. You felt the positive energy in the room. I had all those people eating out of the palm of my hand. They couldn’t wait — couldn’t wait to buy. Well, actually, lucy, they did wait. They waited until sasha showed up. Moll… I would never want to get rid of kristina. That is impossible. That’s your sister. My only problem is all the baggage that comes with her. Look, believe it or not, I understand your concerns. Sonny being kristina’s father and the fact that I might end up prosecuting him — do you know how much I am dreading that possibility? Probably as much as I dread the idea of our child’s biological grandfather being a mob boss.

[ Sighs ] But it’s not all about sonny. I have my concerns with kristina, too. Look, you know I had my hesitations at first. But kristina and i came to an understanding, and I thought that you did, too. That’s why we accepted her offer to be our surrogate, and she genuinely wants to help. She has said from the very beginning that she will be aunt kristina to our child, the same way that she is to danny and scout. But she didn’t carry and give birth to danny and scout. There’s a big difference. How long before she’s second-guessing us, judging our parenting styles, inserting herself into our lives, molly? Kristina has her own life. She has two jobs and a new girlfriend. Mm-hmm. You don’t think that can change with her being pregnant? Okay, of course she will reach a point when she’s go to slow down and… I am talking about her, molly. Everyone, everyone keeps telling me what a beautiful gift it is that kristina is giving us, but that gift comes with a cost. Kristina is more than a surrogate. She is biologically and emotionally invested. Just tell me… you can see how potentially difficult this is. I understand. But I am still choosing to be hopeful. I have seen kristina really come into her own these last few years. She’s changed, tj. For the better. I guess we’ll see. We have no choice at this point.

[ Door opens, footsteps approaching ] Mom. Hi. What brings you here? Um, to see my mom. Oh. Oh, oh, oh, oh. What’s going on here? Are you okay? Huh? I just — I don’t know. I came from molly and tj’s place, and apparently, I’m doing this entire pregnancy wrong. I mean, the wrong diet, the wrong sleep schedule, the wrong — the wrong everything. Oh, honey, it can’t be that bad. No, it is that bad. It’s worse, actually. They think that dad is a physical danger, and they want me to keep my distance from him. I’m sorry, but I’m not gonna do that. I’m not gonna abandon my dad, especially not now. Especially when he needs me. He is pushing everyone away from him. Everyone except for ava… okay. …Who is camped out in his living room. Got it. And [Groans] Breathe. Inhale.

[ Breathes deeply ] Good. All right. Have a seat.

[ Groans ] You’re going through a lot, all right, internally, externally. The hormones are working, they’re working for the baby, and they’re working for your hair, I might add, right? And you’re emotional. Tj and molly are also emotional. Okay? I’m sure you meant well. Would you like me to talk to them? Yes, I would. I mean, I — oh! Oh! Oh. Oh! Guess who just woke up. The baby. Ohh! This baby can really stretch out, and then pow! That’s what they do. Oh, as I’ve heard. Mm. My baby has a real kick.

[ Breathes sharply ] Oooh!


Whoa! Whoa. See? You weren’t kidding. Wow. It’s funny. It was so nice when it was the little butterfly flutters. Now it’s a totally different ball game. More like a soccer game. Mm-hmm. You know, you were just like that. You kicked so hard. I thought you were gonna leave bruises. Really? Maybe the baby takes after me. It’s a little late for buyer’s remorse. We made the decision to trust my sister, and I, for one, intend to do that. I’ve got to go. I’ve got a deposition. Molly, come here. I don’t want to fight. Okay, it’s just you and me, right? I want this to be the best thing that has ever happened to us. Me too. You and me, and baby makes three, right? If you want one of the cupcakes, you’d better get to the break room because they’re going fast. And amy said to be sure and thank your son. What a sweetheart. Aww. Thanks. I will. Mm-hmm.

[ Sighs ] Hi. Um, may I have the counselor’s office, please? This is aiden webber’s mom. I need to make an appointment. Lucy, I’m sorry, but the numbers don’t lie. Lucy, I know you give deception your all. Maybe at times too much of your all. But I’m not trying to minimize your commitment to deception or your accomplishments. I’m just trying to remind you that deception is not only yours. It’s not only mine, or brook lynn’s, or sasha’s, or tracy’s, for that matter. We’re all rooting for it to succeed, but in order to gain success, we have to sell, and you are the wrong salesperson. Okay. Okay. Okay. Um, but what you’re forgetting is, we don’t have sasha, and blaze’s uber-controlling mommy won’t let blaze pitch. Right. So I’m all we’ve got. There is nobody else. Well, there is one other person. There’ll be no more threats from selina wu. I got it handled. Well, I guess… the only real decision now is where you’re gonna split your time and your focus. Because this is gonna be a major project. No question. And require travel. Honey, I’m in charge. I can set my own schedule.

[ Sighs ] Are there any more objections? There’s just one that I can think of. Baby, I’m gonna miss you. I really enjoyed you being home, you know? Having you all to myself. And I don’t want to be away too often or too far from you, either. But, baby, I believe in this project. I know — I know I can make it happen. And in the process build something lasting that I — that I can be proud of. How could I say no to that? It looks like you’ve made your decision. Let’s just say there’s a little something in it for everybody. You get access to congressman mcconkey, and I get access to my daughter. I see. Quid pro quo. You give something to get something. Makes more sense than us trying to sabotage each other. So you want to cooperate. But cooperation takes trust. Well, I trust you to see your advantage in all of this. I can definitely see that.

[ Cellphone rings ] Curtis. Drew. I hope I’m not interrupting. Absolutely not. I’ve always got time for you. Thanks, man. Look, I, um — I reviewed your offer. And? Are we doing this? I’m in.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Oh, yes. I finally got the all clear from Kayla. Not a trace of radiation left in my system. None at all. Yes, it’s a big relief. I adore you too, Abraham. See you tonight.

Judd. Hello. Mayor Price. What, what brings you here? Did we have an appointment? Uh, no. Actually, I, I just, uh, was passing through and thought I’d take a chance on, uh, meeting with you. But, uh, now’s not a good time, honestly. I could come back. It’s fine, fine. I got a few minutes. Please, please. Sit down. So what can I do for you?

Um, I got a tip from someone and, uh, and I wanted to discuss it with you. Okay.

Look, this person claims that you abused your power as mayor and, um, put the public health at risk. Excuse me, abused my power. So, where did you get this tip, Chad? Who in the hell told you that?

Everett, you’re safe. You’re safe

right now. Nobody’s going to hurt you. No. I’m not. I’m not safe.

Hello, Everett. Dr. Evans. Good to see you. You too. Would you mind if I join you? You know what, um, I’m just, I’m finishing up an article, so I’m, I’m a little busy. Well, it won’t take long. Okay, sit right down.

Last time we spoke You said you did not want to continue hypnosis. Yes, that’s correct. And did you change your mind? No.

Why did you lie to Stephanie?

Closed.

Stephanie, I am so sorry. I’m late. No problem. Is everything okay? Yeah. Yeah. I just slept through my alarm this morning and I was the only one on the schedule to open. Hey. You’re here now. Okay. Only because I drove like a bat out of hell to get her here. Aww. Okay, um, I can’t even believe that I slept through my alarm, but whatever you want, I will give you a discount, okay?

Why? Why? I was only here two minutes. I just wanted to pick up some pastries for a prospective client. Oh, they’re not for you. No. No. I already had breakfast at my mom and dad’s. We had a little farewell gathering for Tripp and Wendy. Okay. Okay. I had to leave early, unfortunately. And they’re, uh, they’re already about two hours into their flight.

A flight? Where? What are you talking about? Constantine.

And since you’re here, I assume You assumed correctly. Uh, Kayla has given me the all clear and no more isolation and no radiation in my system. Oh, Julie. Oh, that’s such a relief. Oh, more than a relief. I’m, I’m, I’m elated. And Doug is elated, too, and he’s been very clingy today. Well, I could imagine. Well, I’ve been clinging myself.

Maggie, I feel so guilty that I, that I didn’t go to the cabin with him. I thought I would just be away for one night and it turned out, because of radiation, to be days and days and, you know, at this time of our lives. Every day together is so precious. Well, we took good care of him when you went around.

Yes, he told me. He said you were great, and I thank you so much. Well listen, the isolation, it didn’t drive you stir crazy? No, and in that beautiful guest house that you arranged for me? No, I read a lot and I meditated and And I really tried to figure out how to open grandpa’s time capsule, but To no avail.

Oh no, how frustrating. Yeah, frustrating. And I just know that my grandparents are having a good chuckle over my distress. Yes, I’m sure they are. Well, now that you’re back, I have some news for you, Julie. Ah, I’m listening. Well, before word gets out, I wanted to tell you myself. Constantine and I are getting married.

There

Now listen closely to every word I say, because I have an extremely important mission for you. What’s my mission? Magi, Kiriakos, and I are engaged to be married, but there is just one problem. And you, my obedient pawn, need to serve it.

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

I thought you knew. Trip and Wendy decided to spend some time with Wendy’s family in Hong Kong. No, no, didn’t even know they were thinking about it. Um, when are they coming back? I’m not sure. I think it’s kind of open ended. Wow, uh, I can’t believe Wendy would have left without saying goodbye. Stephanie, uh, you can help yourself to whatever you want.

Everything is on me. Why? I, I, Chanel, I only got here two minutes ago, okay? I’m happy to pay for my pastries. How about you just grab what you want and then we can argue about it after. No arguments.

Johnny, would you help me set up a display table? I wanted to give out some cookies to the kids for May Day. Um, and I know it’s kind of old fashioned, but Everything okay? Huh? Are you okay? Uh, yeah, yeah, no, I’m fine. What’d you say you needed?

So, Uh, Did you get this tip from your D. A. brother? Because it happens to be almost exactly what came out of his mouth yesterday. Did E. J. ask you to publish a hit piece on me? I haven’t spoken to him in quite some time. You sure he didn’t send you an email about it then? A text? Look, Mary Price, I came to see you because I wanted to get ahead of the gossip and find out what really happened at Smith Island.

What really happened was there was a snowstorm and my daughter went missing. And you left the hospital against your doctor’s advice and illegally commandeered a snowplow to try to find her.

Mayor Price, I, I would like to get your side of the story. On the record. If we can do that.

You say you have a problem you need me to solve. I do. You see, Maggie Kiriakis is marrying me in name only. Well that I can live with. But she also wants to keep me from getting what I came to Salem for. I do. Victor’s fortune. And that I cannot live with. So what do you need me for?

Look, I, um I know Stephanie’s a huge fan of yours, so I didn’t want to make you out to be a quack in front of her. A quack? A quack. I know that must sound harsh, but, I mean, you must know, uh, hypnosis is a pseudoscience. It’s, it’s barely a step up from a carnival act, in my opinion. Besides which, uh, the divorce papers that I’ve been so relentlessly pursued to sign are now signed.

So the court is cut from Jada and I’m ready to move on with my life. Well, I’m glad about that for you. And, uh, in spite of your disdain for hypnosis, I think you would still benefit from therapy. And if you don’t want to continue seeing me, a quack, as you say, you might want to find a different therapist.

Thank you for the recommendation. Um, I take it to heart, but I don’t think I’ll be continuing therapy with you or with anyone else. As I said, I’m ready to move on, so if you’ll excuse me. Chad,

wherever, whoever you got this tip from, I can guarantee you it’s, it’s all been blown out of proportion. Really? Because I heard the firefighters had to wear hazmat suits to protect themselves from the dangers of the radiation. Because they were ill informed. It was an overreaction. Look, Mayor Price, I’ve checked it out.

Okay, I know the facts. I know that you were warned against the risks of being in close proximity with people before your numbers were down. They weren’t down. The firefighters checked it out too. You were in a hazmat suit when they transported you back. My numbers were going down. I felt the risk was minimal.

Okay, then why didn’t you notify anyone you were leaving the hospital?

I got quotes from the public works guy, too, who you strong armed the snowplow from. I mean, where’d you even learn to drive a snowplow? I used to own a construction company in Miami. I learned how to drive heavy equipment. Driving a snow plow is no different than driving a bulldozer.

So then you don’t deny that it happened.

Constantine has lost so much in his life. And he’s told me so many times how it’s been a tremendous comfort for him to stay in Salem. And, you know, for me, his presence, it’s a comfort to me. I know that, yes. Um, well, Julie, he can’t stay in this country unless he becomes a citizen through marriage. So, I decided to make that happen for him.

You probably think I’m crazy. No, no. I don’t think you’re crazy. I think it is, uh, an example of your enormous generosity. You want to help the man. Julie, thank you for understanding. Well, I know that you have thought this through. You know what you want. You know what you need. I do. And I think it’s a positive thing for me.

Cool. To have Konstantin stay here, his, his friendship and, and companionship.

Yes, of course. I just,

I hope you’re going to protect yourself going into this marriage, Maggie. I assume you mean financially. Yes. Yes, I am. Um, I knew it was wise for me to have a prenup. He signed it immediately. No resistance at all. He knows if I, um, predecease him, that the entire Kiriakis fortune goes to Victor’s children.

You have been very wise, and I support you in this decision completely. Oh, Julie. Thank you so much for understanding. And for your friendship. Oh. My future wife insisted that I sign a prenuptial agreement. She locked it in the wall safe in the study of the Kiriakis mansion. I need you to break into that safe and steal that prenup.

Ask who it is. Who is it? John, it’s me. Is everything okay? Tell her everything is just fine. Everything is just fine. Why is the door locked?

Look, Chad, I know there are a few malcontents out there who are Eager to slander me. Mainly D. A. DiMera, since I called him out on his questionable behavior. I’m sorry, but this isn’t about D. A. DiMera or, or anyone else trying to be vindictive. Mayor Price, no one is eager to slander you. The fact is, the fact is, is that you left the hospital against medical advice and you, and you hijacked a snowplow.

Now someone could have been seriously hurt. I know you say you have experience, uh, uh, uh, on how to operate, you know, that kind of vehicle, but you were in no shape to do so at that time. Not to mention, you don’t have a license. Okay. And there was no guarantee you were going to find Chanel. Mayor Price, you could have been seriously hurt.

Or died trying to find her. But it didn’t turn out that way, did it? Chanel is safe and I’m doing just fine. And for that, we are all very relieved. And grateful. But come on, Mayor Price. You know that it’s dangerous to be in close proximity to people while, while, while radioactive. You know how risky that is.

Chad, there is not a parent in the world who would not have done the same thing that I did, and you know it. Now, what if a What if it were your children that were missing? Wouldn’t you, wouldn’t you have gone to any lengths to try to find them? Empress, it’s not a fair question. It’s only not fair because you know very well you would do the exact same thing I did, regardless of whether or not you put others at risk.

Very minimal risk. Minimal? Are you sure about that?

In the end, no one was affected by my being in close proximity to them. Julie, Johnny, or Chanel, everyone is doing just fine. So, if you want to write a fair and balanced article about all this, why don’t you ask my daughter Chanel if she’d rather been left to freeze to death in that snow?

Hey, I, um, I wanted to ask you, uh, since you’re probably gonna be too busy to go apartment hunting today, did you want me to go ahead, scope some stuff out, or you wanna wait till we can both go together? Oh! Uh, sure, if you want to go alone, then, yeah, you could do that. I, I’m exhausted, and, um, if you wanted to do some of the legwork on your own, then, um, that would be awesome.

Okay, then, that’s what I will do. Oh, I gotta say, it’s always just a little awkward. When the leasing agent asks about employment, you know, trust fund 20 something isn’t exactly an occupation. Oh, stop. They don’t care how you get the money as long as you have it and you can pay the rent. And plus the bakery is doing really good right now, so we’re good.

Yeah, I don’t know. Maybe I just, I’ve kind of been thinking maybe I should have given my dad’s offer a little more thought. What? No. Working for DiMera Enterprises has never been your dream. Yeah, I know, but I should probably have some kind of job, right? Okay, then pursue what actually is your dream. You’ve always wanted to make movies.

Yeah, I have, but there’s no opportunities for things like that in Salem. I mean, I need to be in L. A., you know, or New York. And I would never ask you to leave your mom or your bakery. You should know your whole life is here. My whole life is here. You sure about that? Yeah, of course I am. Hey, I know

you got a lot going on these days, but what was with your 180 earlier? Excuse me? You wouldn’t give me the time of day outside, and then you were all Mr. Friendly when I came in. What’s up with that? I, um, I didn’t know I did that. Maybe I was distracted. Seemed you were evasive with Jada, too. I mean, you signed the divorce paper, so why don’t you give them to her and be done with it?

Did you change your mind or something? Sorry. Um, I gotta go.

Hey there. Hey. Hey. Chat around? I have something I wanted to drop off for Thomas and Charlotte. Ah, right. Um, no. She’s, uh, took off out of here to do an interview. I’m writing an article about May Day, which is as fascinating as it sounds. That explains the mood. I have rewritten the first paragraph like 28 times.

It’s brilliant. That sucks. But I’m kind of glad that that’s why you’re in a bad mood. I was worried it might have something to do with you giving Jayda the signed divorce papers. I don’t know. No. No. It’s, uh, nothing to do with that. Jada was relieved. Obviously.

I, I assume you are too?

John?

Hi there. Why was the door locked? I didn’t know it was. Oh, uh, so am I interrupting something?

No, we were just, uh, I came by to invite you and John to my wedding. Your wedding? Oh, Maggie has not told you? No. No, she hasn’t said a word. Well, then that is my fault. I am sorry. Would you mind when Maggie does invite you that you pretend this is the first time you’re hearing it? No, I wouldn’t mind that, actually.

But I, uh, I mean, I can’t imagine that she wouldn’t mind you telling us.

Well, excuse me. I should be going. I will be in touch.

A wedding? My God, what is Maggie thinking? John, what did he say? Well, he, he said that, um, I don’t know. You don’t know? How can you not know? He, he was just here. Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t. This is just so strange. I think he, he said something. About Maggie, I can’t remember exactly. Did he talk about anything else?

No. No, at least I, I don’t think he did not. Yes. Yes, I remember that we were both talking. What the? I can’t recall when we were talking about it, damn it all. This isn’t the first time this has happened. What do you mean? It just hit me a couple of weeks ago when I met Constantine in the park. The exact same thing happened.

Oh my god. Doc, what the hell is going on with me, honey? That’s a very good question.

You, you are totally right. You’re totally right. Why, why would I have misgivings about divorcing Jada? You know, I don’t even know the woman. I want nothing to do with her. I think the only reason that I was hesitant to sign those papers is, it’s because it seemed like it would be forgery, you know, just to sign as, as Robert Stein.

No, I, I know. I know that. But thanks to you, I, I got over that, that reluctance. I’m glad that you did. For Jada’s sake. And yours. Yeah. I’m glad I did too. You really helped me realize that I needed to do that in order to put all this behind me. It’s great.

Hi. Hey, Chad. Um, I have something for the kids. That’s why, that’s why I’m here. Oh, that’s very sweet. Uh, Everett said that you were doing an interview? Yes, I am. Uh, I just came by to grab this. Oh. Um, I’m not sure if it’s going to pan out, but if it does, I’ll loop you in. Okay. Well, um, here. I passed by a toy store and I couldn’t resist.

Just another teddy bear for Charlotte and some action figures for Thomas. Oh, look, it really doesn’t matter what it is because, you know, if it comes from you, they’re gonna love it. Uh, well, I’m gonna run home and grab lunch before my next interview and, uh, Oh, um, Thomas keeps asking when you’re gonna come over and play cards.

Oh, tell him soon. I’d love to see Charlotte too. Yeah. This weekend? Sure, just let me know. Uh, I’ll reach out to you later? Yeah. Everett,

before Chad came in, you were talking about putting it all behind you. Yeah. What exactly did you mean by that? I mean exactly that. I think it’s time to forget about Bobby Stein and Move on with my life. Haha. Hmm. Yes, it is. How are you?

How are you, sweetie? Um, you know what? I am grateful to be indoors, and I think I might have sprained my ankle. Oh, oh, I’m sorry about the ankle, but this is such a relief. Who found you? She was stuck out by that big rock area. Yeah. I was headed there when I saw the snowplow, Paulina. I drove it across the bridge to rescue Chanel.

Told you I was gonna find my girl. Well, well, we’re all very grateful, I’m sure, but you should have stayed in isolation. Yeah, I know, I know, I’m still radioactive, but I just Paulina! You exposed all of us! I just hope to God you haven’t done more harm than good.

Oh, how are two of my very favorite people doing on this fine day? Hi, Mama. Hey, baby. Paulina, you’re looking great. Oh, thank you. Thank you, Paula. Feeling great, too. Um, and well, um, I do have a favor to ask of my new son in law. Well, you just go ahead and name it. Um, the spectator has been sniffing around, um, my office asking about my leaving isolation at the hospital and going to Smith Island.

And after the disagreement, the DA and I had last night. Uh, I have no doubt he’s behind it. You’re talking about my dad? Yes, I am. And, well, Johnny, you know, I don’t want to put you in an uncomfortable position. Uh, but um, I think your papa’s out to get me. What do you think you can do to help? Ah, Julie! What a pleasant surprise!

Released from isolation, huh? Yes, I am, and I understand congratulations are in order. Maggie told you that we are engaged to be married, huh? Yes, she did, and I’m very happy for you that you will get to stay in this country, and happy for Maggie, because I know how much she enjoys your company. Not as much as I enjoy hers.

So, when is this big day? Oh, well, that’s something we’re still discussing. I see. Okay, well, I’m sure when you know, I will know. We will. And if you two will excuse me now, I’ve got to get some breakfast for Doug and myself. Yes, see you later, Judith. Yes, see you later. Yes, you will.

You changed your shirt. Oh, I’m always spilling coffee. Something tells me that Julie is concerned about this marriage. Well, actually, she was very supportive of my decision. I hope you told her about the prenup because I want her to know that all I want is to be here in Salem close to you and nothing more.

I told her about the prenup, yes. And that your lease expires at the end of the month. Well, I suppose that means we should tie the knot as soon as possible, yes? Don’t worry. I’m not going to let the deadline pass. I’ll make sure you don’t have to leave Salem.

I suspect that when you’re with Constantine, a part of you shuts down. It’s a way of trying to, well, forget the memories of what he put you through. Your subconscious is trying to Protect itself. So you think that’s why I can’t remember any of my conversation with him just now? Well, I think that’s one explanation, but But not the only one, right?

So you had a disagreement with my dad last night? That’s putting it mildly. And then, um, his brother, your Uncle Chad, shows up at my office this morning asking all these questions and twisting around what actually happened. And it, it sounded almost exactly like what your father said to me last night.

Paulina, I’m so sorry. Yeah, me too, Mama. And as I said, Johnny, I, you know, I hate putting you in the middle of all of this. Um, but, uh, Could you possibly put in a, a good word for me with, you know, with Chad? Yeah, of course. I will. I will. I will. I’ll, uh, I will. Thank you. Thank you, honey. And you know, tell him how I saved Chanel and I told, how I told everybody to stay away from me.

And I was trying to be as responsible as possible. You both know that, don’t you? Yeah, yeah, of course. I, uh, I, Hey, man. Everything okay? Yeah, I just suddenly feltqueasy. Oh, man.

Chad! Hey, there. Oh, hey. Nice to see you, Chubb. Yes, um, you too. Uh, I just came by to drop off some gifts that Stephanie got for the kids and, uh, I don’t know, grab a little bite to eat. Oh, well, cook. He made a marvelous chicken pot pie. And I’m sure there’s some left. Yeah? Yeah. Uh, I meant to ask you, did you, did you Final thing that you were looking for?

Oh, yes, I did. Thank you very much. Well, I know that you were really shaken up about it. You know, actually, it was a playing card that Constantine misplaced. And the reason I was shaken up is because it was symbolic of something that was It is too complicated to get into now, but suffice to say, it reminded me of my daughter, who I lost, as you know.

Yeah, I know. Well, I’m uh, really glad you found your card. Okay, see you later. Okay, enjoy the pot pie.

But Everett, you still don’t really understand what happened in your past. There are still so many unanswered questions. About Bobby Stein, your marriage to Jada. I just, I don’t want to talk about that anymore. I’m tired of deep diving the past looking for answers that frankly may or may not exist. I think it’s a waste of precious time.

Honestly. How can it be a waste of time? I mean, don’t you have to understand your past to be able to live fully now? I don’t know. Do you? I feel like that could just be a bunch of psychobabble. You know what I mean? I feel perfectly capable of living my life now, knowing what I know. And I feel fine. You can’t live your life in the past.

You’ve got to be in the here and now. Carpe diem, baby. Okay, those are, those are helpful bromides, Everett. But in your case? I know. My case is Complicated. Obviously, it’s complicated. I know that. I totally know that. But I really feel like I’m, I feel like I’m turning this corner right now. No more ruminating about things that may or may not have happened in the past that don’t have anything to do with my life right now.

No more being shrunk. It’s a waste of time, like I said. Really? A waste of time? Well, Dr. Evans must agree. In my case, because she actually discharged me from therapy.

Everett, why would you be discharged from therapy? I thought you were making progress. I was. And now I just I think I’ve gotten everything I could possibly get out of my sessions with Dr. Evans. You know, the fact of the matter is I might. Never get access to those memories that she was trying so hard for me to access.

So, she and I agreed that the best use of my time, and hers, would be for me to focus on the here and the now. Moving forward. I see. I think I told you this before, but After the accident, after I regained consciousness, the specialists all told me that my memories over the past few years Might be permanently erased.

So I, I’ve just learned to live with that. You’re making progress. Like I said. Until you freaked out during hypnosis. Yeah, well Marlena said that that’s actually pretty common. To freak out, um, during hypnosis. That happens to a lot of people. And actually she considered it a breakthrough. Of sorts. So, I know, it’s crazy, but I trust your judgment.

Honestly, I’m excited. I’m excited to start making new memories. Hopefully with you.

So, is there any news on when we can go home? Well, I was able to get a hold of the contractor and he said everything’s going beautifully. Wouldn’t it be wonderful when we can go home again? Oh, it’s going to be amazing. Um, I have to go to an appointment, but I was hoping I could ask you about your experience at the cabin, if you have time.

Oh, of course I do ask away. Well, um, how do you feel about Mayor Price exposing you to radiation? Um, I understand completely her compulsion to find her missing daughter. And I’m still very upset that everybody had to go into days and days of isolation because of her rash behavior. She is the mayor of the town.

I would think she should be protecting her people rather than putting their lives at risk. Right. So then you do feel like she put your lives at risk? It’s not a feeling, darling. It’s what happened. Because she did not stay in her isolation room at the hospital, Chanel and Johnny and I all could have become very ill.

I just thank God that we didn’t.

Hey, is uh, everything okay? Uh, yeah, uh, not, not really, but I’m not feeling well. Oh, honey, uh, can I get you anything? Water? Juice? Oh, uh, no, um, I already called Lauren. She’s gonna come in. She lives about five minutes away, so she should be here soon. You know, you were tired yesterday and this morning. Yeah, well, there’s stuff going around.

I know there is, but look, I don’t mean to scare you. It’s just Kayla said we should look out for any symptoms of radiation poisoning, like fatigue. Oh, no. Oh, my God, Janelle. Okay, Mama, Mama, it’s okay. It’s okay. No, no, no, it’s not, it’s not okay. Not if you’re feeling sick. No, I, I think we should just, let’s get you to the hospital right away.

Get you checked out. No, please, please, please, no. I just want to get some rest and then we’ll see how I’m feeling tomorrow morning. No, no, we are not playing around with this.

[ Dramatic music ]

Deacon: My god, it’s really you.

Finn: Mom, mom, it’s me. It’s finn. Can you hear me? Mom, can you hear me? Mom?

Deacon: Finn, is she alive?. Finn!

Steffy: Hey, babe. Just, uh, checking in, seeing if you are okay. Just been feeling a little uneasy after everything. All right, call me when you can. I miss hearing your voice. I love you.

[ Hope clears throat ] Hope, hey.

Hope: Everything all right?

Steffy: Yeah, I– I hope so.

Hope: Can’t get a hold of finn?

Steffy: He’s not picking up.

Hope: Hm, I’m sure he’s probably with a patient.

Steffy: Probably. Yeah.

Waitress: Wanna settle the bill?

Liam: Uh, no, thank you. Actually, I think I’m gonna be adding to it in a moment.

Waitress: Somebody else joining you?

Liam: Yeah, yeah. Somebody pretty special. Actually, somebody I haven’t seen in a really long… long time. There she is. Oh, my god. It’s been so long, ivy.

Ivy: Too long.

Ivy: Well, thank you for meeting me.

Liam: Uh, yeah, of course.

Liam: You know, I really wasn’t sure if you’d be interested.

Liam: Uh, come on. Come on.

Ivy: I’m just– I’m being– I’m being vulnerable, here.

Liam: So, um, what are you– what are you doing in L.A.?

Ivy: Well, not L.A. Exactly. I’m just passing through. But I made sure I scheduled an insanely long layover so i could spend a little time with my uncle eric.

Liam: Oh, my god, he must’ve been so thrilled to see you.

Ivy: Mm-hmm, yeah, he’s already tried convincing me to move back. He actually said there’s a huge void in the, uh, in the jewelry department.

Liam: Uh, yeah, there is and he should be offering you, like, a bazillion dollar contract.

Ivy: Oh, a bazillion?

Liam: Bazillion.

Ivy: Well, we didn’t get that far in the negotiations.

Liam: Ah, shame.

Ivy: Honestly, I’m just so happy to see him doing better and he just looks so healthy.

Liam: Yeah, it is. It’s a– it’s a huge relief.

Ivy: Mm-hmm.

Liam: What’s your secret?

Ivy: Well, what do you mean?

Liam: You just look so happy and beautiful.

Steffy: Yeah, I’m sure you’re right. I know when it gets crazy here, I can’t even pick up the phone and I’m not even saving lives, so.

Hope: I’m sure he’ll be in touch when he can.

Steffy: I know.

Hope: I mean, you– you have to admit, though, I mean, it must be a nice feeling, right?

Steffy: What?

Hope: Just knowing that a lot of people rely on your husband. You know, whatever he’s up to, I’m sure he is making a really big difference in someone’s life.

Steffy: Yeah, I know he is. He’s always dealing with a life or death situation.

Hope: Yeah, so, whoever is in finn’s care, they’re in capable and caring hands.

Deacon: Tell me we’re not too late. Finn, her eyes. Look at her eyes.

Finn: Mom. Mom, it’s me. It’s finn. It’s finn. You’re alive. You’re alive.

Ivy: You know, sometimes I do think about moving back to L.A. I did love it here.

Liam: Great, it’s settled. No take-backs.

Ivy: Yeah. Wait, what are you doing?

Liam: I’m, uh, calling your uncle eric. I wanna tell him to give you a corner office–

Ivy: No, no, no, please don’T.

Ivy: Uh, no one knows better how busy I am than eric, okay? There’s– my life is very, very busy in sydney. Too much to walk away from. But, you know, we’ll see. Never say never. Anyway, enough about me. How are you doing?

Liam: Uh, you– you know, I’m hanging in there.

Ivy: Yeah. Yeah, I was– I was sorry to hear about you and hope.

Liam: Uh, thanks. It’s okay. You know, it’s, um, it wasn’t easy to go through, but I think there are good things on the horizon. I mean, I’m– I’m– I’m, uh, concentrating on my work and– and my kids and, um, you know, who knows, maybe it’ll– it’s just preparing me for the next thing.

Ivy: Maybe someone from the past, even. After all, I did hear that, uh, that thomas left hope.

Liam: Uh, yeah, I can confirm that is true.

Ivy: And that benefits you, maybe. Do you see yourself going back to hope?

Steffy: Babe? Breakfast. You hungry?

Finn: Oh, um, no, I’m good. I’ll just– I’ll grab something later.

Steffy: Hey, you were like this last night. Quiet, distracted. Is it a work thing? You wanna bounce ideas off of me?

Finn: Thanks. I, um, right now I have more questions than answers, but hopefully that’ll change soon and when it does, you’ll be the first to know.

Hope: Sorry about that. There was a bit of a holdup at customs. So, any other questions?

Steffy: No, I think we are good. Everything looks on target. Um… actually, I do have one more question. Uh, how you doing?

Hope: You don’t mean with hope for the future, do you? You mean…

Steffy: You. How are you doing?

Hope: Well, it has been a bit of an adjustment since thomas and douglas aren’t in los angeles, but, uh, career-wise, I’m feeling rather positive. I think revamping hope for the future with rj, zende, luna, it’s been a really wonderful thing. So, I’m trying to focus on what I can control. The change has been challenging, but I have to believe that something good will come of it.

Steffy: Well, the line has been incredible. What about you? Have you, uh… I mean, are you seeing anyone?

Hope: Seriously, steffy? Thomas hasn’t been gone that long. Wait. What, are you hoping that liam and I get back together?

Deacon: You’re gonna be fine, baby. Just fine. Finn’s gonna take real good care of you. Oh, my god.

Finn: What?

Deacon: The chain. Any suggestions?

Sheila: Help me. Help me. Help me. Entresto is the #1 heart failure brand Harry & david makes mother’s day easy. Share a gift, made with love, with the mom in your life. Choose from hundreds of stunning baskets and towers. It’s the perfect way to say thank you – for everything. Harry & david. Life is a gift. Share more.

Liam: Oof, uh… could I see myself back with hope?

Ivy: Well, it– it seems like she’s available again.

Liam: Yeah, but I– I– I don’t think either of us are in a place where we wanna jump back in. Or just– how about– I– I don’t know. I don’t know what the future holds.

Ivy: Okay. Yeah, that’s fair enough.

Liam: I mean, I’ll– I’ll always care about hope, obviously. We– we have a child together, so there’s that.

Ivy: Yeah, well, like you do with steffy.

Liam: Yeah, no, I’m very, uh, I’m very fortunate that– that each of my girls belong to an incredible woman, um, and– and I’m thankful to hope and steffy just for being so cool about the co-parenting stuff and– and being such great role models to kids.

Ivy: Well, I’m sure they’re thankful for you, too. I mean, I know I would be. Any woman would. Liam, I hope you know that a lot of people think you’re pretty fantastic.

Hope: Yes, liam and I have been spending more time together, but that doesn’t mean that we’re… okay, look, all you need to know is that we have had some much needed conversations. Yeah, thankfully, the anger and resentment on both sides has calmed down a little, or at least it’s starting to, and I’m very, very grateful for that. I think it’s important to move past that, especially for beth’s sake. I want her to see her parents getting along, and I want to have a good relationship with her father.

Steffy: So you gonna make a play for liam?

Hope: You know, steffy, maybe you shouldn’t worry so much about liam and me. Maybe you should focus that energy on finn.

Finn: That’s what we’re gonna do, okay? We’re gonna help you. Are you in any pain? Deacon, we need to get her hydrated. Can you find something?

Deacon: I’m on it.

Finn: Okay. Let’s try to get you up. Okay? Okay, it’s okay. Sip on that, I got you. Take it slow.

Deacon: What’s– what’s wrong with her? Okay, easy girl, okay.

Finn: Okay. Struggling with the highs and lows of bipolar 1?

Liam: Hey, ivy forrester. Um… if I didn’t know any better, I might possibly think that you were almost flirting with me?

Ivy: Oh! Well, there’s no almost about it, actually. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I’ll dial it back, I promise.

Liam: No, don’T. Mm-mm, no– no dialing. Don’t dial.

Ivy: I– I’m sorry. I’m not– I’m not trying to be forward. It’s just…

Liam: It’s just what?

Ivy: I, uh, whoo… I, um… I think about you a lot, liam. I haven’t forgotten all of the good times that we’ve shared, and… how close we became. And how close I wish we’d become. You know, I think I remember that most of all. How great it felt kissing you.

Steffy: Okay, well, they’re gonna send over the spring-summer collection, but we’re not gonna be paying additional fees, okay? Wonderful. Thank you. Okay. Where were we? Oh, yes. Finn. My focus is on him, my children and my family.

Hope: Okay. I just mean, you know, whatever happens between liam and me, I mean, it really shouldn’t matter to you, right?

Steffy: He is my daughter’s father.

Hope: I know. I just think in the grand scheme of things, because not really any of your business and you have bigger things to focus on. It’s just you’ve been through so much lately, and I mean, everything that happened with sheila…

Steffy: Yeah, it was extremely challenging. But we can finally put it behind us. Sheila’s gone. She’s dead. She’s never coming back.

Finn: Deacon, we’ve gotta get this off. There’s only so much I can do here.

Deacon: What can we do for her right now?

Finn: She’s malnourished, dehydrated. We need to get her to a hospital. Oh, sheila.

Deacon: Oh, sheila, sheila.

Finn: Sheila, sheila.

Deacon: Give me some more water. Okay, easy. Come on. Okay, come on, come on.

Finn: Slow.

Deacon: Okay. Okay. Okay, okay, okay, okay.

Deacon: There she is. There’s my beautiful girl. Everyone said I was crazy. Hell, I thought I was crazy myself, but I never stopped believing that you were alive.

sleep on the plane, so thank you very much for the first class ticket.

Traci: Mm-hmm. And thank you for coming all the way from paris on short notice to talk to my sister.

Alan: Well, I’m always happy to have a chance to see ashley, but I’m a bit concerned about this one. I was worried about her after I last visited paris.

Traci: So, you did sense that there might be something else wrong?

Alan: Well, at the time, I attributed it to, uh, the emotional turmoil of the breakup of her marriage. But afterwards… I just began to worry that something deeper was brewing.

Traci: Well, I’m afraid we are at full boil.

Diane: Ashley, having a little afternoon pick-me-up?

Ashley: Yes. I thought I would treat myself to something strong and frothy. You know, I love mrs. Martinez to death, but her coffee can be weak.

Diane: Oh, I never thought so. Hm.

Ashley: And yet, here you are.

Diane: Oh, I’m picking up some brownies for harrison. They’re his favorite.

Ashley: Diane, you don’t have to explain yourself to me.

Diane: Huh. How are you feeling?

Ashley: I’m feeling fine. How are you feeling?

Diane: Uh, I’m good, and I’m glad to hear it. You– you’ve had your ups and downs lately. It’s been quite a roller coaster. For jack and traci, too.

Ashley: Yeah. If I didn’t know you so well, that butter wouldn’t melt in your mouth routine might actually work.

Diane: I’m not pretending to be concerned.

Ashley: Oh, don’t be that way. It’s a compliment. Kill ’em with kindness has always been my motto, too.

Michael: Okay. Thanks for the update.

Victor: Have you found anything?

Michael: No sign at all of jordan’s body. They searched the area of the riverbed below the spot you said she fell.

Victor: Michael, please, stop wasting time looking for a dead woman, all right? It is clear what you’d be looking for.

Michael: Victor, if by some chance jordan is still alive, she would be key to the–

Victor: That woman is gone. She’s of no use to us anymore.

Michael: Vict– victor, we have nothing to go on. Jordan’s body could be a clue. An address in her pocket, a number on her phone.

Victor: I am telling you to look for claire. She may well be fighting for her life as we speak.

Cole: How could you possibly recognize these keys?

Victoria: From the colors. Billy had a set just like this. I remember because katie used to play with them all the time.

Cole: Wait, wait you– you think they’re billy’s keys?

Victoria: No, but they could be from the same place. He had, um, he had a storage unit there. I remember. One opened the parking gate and the other one was for the front entrance. And then the other one was for the actual unit. This one says 23. Oh, my god. Is it possible that this is where jordan was holding claire? Type 2 diabetes?

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Michael: Okay. Message received. I’ll pull the team off of the search for jordan’s body and focus solely on other avenues for finding claire. Security cam footage, canvassing. We’ll go old school and door to door with flyers.

Victor: Go get to it, okay?

[ Phone ringing ] Yes, cole. Any update?

Cole: Well, I may have some good news. We found a set of keys that were hidden inside a doll like the ones my mother used to collect. Now, you may recall that nikki mentioned seeing one like it at the lake house. Victoria has seen something about these keys that she recognizes and she thinks that they could belong to a storage facility that billy used to use. She’s tracking down the address right now.

Victor: And do you think this is where jordan may hold claire hostage?

Cole: I hope so. If not, maybe we can at least have a clue.

Victoria: Billy, hi, it’s me. Um, listen, I need the address to that storage facility that you used to use. You– you know, you remember the one where katie used to always play with the keys? Can– yes. Can you text that to me? Okay, thank you. I’ll– I’ll explain later. Okay. Oh, I got it.

Cole: We’re headed there now.

Victor: But listen, be careful. I’ll send backup, all right? Well, I think we may be getting somewhere. It seems that victoria and cole have found a set of keys. Keys to a storage unit. Where perhaps jordan is holding claire hostage.

Michael: Well, hang on. That’s– that’s a lot of assumptions. Uh, jordan rented that motel room under an assumed name. And it was rented to a couple before her. Uh, it could be their keys.

Victor: But they found those keys inside a doll, a similar doll that jordan had at her lake house.

Michael: Okay. So, more likely, it’s connected to her. But it still could be a trap or a misdirect.

Victor: Wait here. I’ll find out.

Michael: Well, where are you going? Victor? Victor!

Traci: I was so worried about ashley while we were in paris. She shared with you the, um, argument she had with her ex-husband at the cafe?

Alan: With tucker, yes, his explosion. And then the visit you two made there. At first, she thought the staff was paid off to back up his version of the story.

Traci: Yeah, that was the theory. Obviously, it turned out to be wrong. And then she had to accept that she misremembered the whole argument. That she exaggerated his anger and the violence.

Alan: Yeah, she came to see me that visit. And obviously, it upset her quite a bit, realizing that what she recalled and reality were two different things.

Traci: Yeah, it’s a lot to navigate.

Alan: Yeah.

Traci: Honestly, I– I thought once she got home and accepted that, and that things were over with tucker, she would be able to just go on with her life. But that’s when things got very worrisome.

Alan: In what way?

Traci: My sister has been having mood swings.

Alan: Uh, highs and lows, or?

Traci: No, um, more like personality shifts. For example, uh, she will be extremely confident.

Alan: Well, that’s ashley.

[ Both laugh ]

Traci: Yeah. So, take that ashley to the nth degree. And at the next moment, she’ll be almost childlike. And then last night, we got a new one. Uh, uh, tequila shots and live it up. But the most troubling is when she is our ashley. She’s so fragile. And she’s confided in me that she’s having blackouts.

Alan: Wait, from alcohol?

Traci: I don’t think so. The– the time I know about for sure, she insists she had nothing to drink.

Alan: Blackouts. What else does she say about the blackouts?

[ Traci sighs ]

Traci: Well, she sort of describes them as big chunks of time that are just missing, like she’ll wake up somewhere and not know where she is or how she got there. The family is really worried.

Alan: Well, that’s an understandable reaction.

Traci: Yeah. My brother billy suggests that maybe she’s experiencing splintering of her personality, you know, triggered by the trauma of what happened with tucker.

Alan: Well, that is a serious diagnosis. Is billy a psychiatrist?

Traci: No, but… he’s experienced something similar himself.

Alan: Oh.

Traci: He says he can recognize the signs. Now, we’ve tried to get her to see a doctor, and she agrees. And at the last minute, she changes her mind.

Alan: Hm. Well, I’m– I’m glad you reached out to me. And I’ve known ashley a very long time and in the past, she has confided in me that she has a history of psychosis. So maybe it was triggered somehow, brought to a new level.

Diane: Kill ’em with kindness, huh?

Ashley: Words to live by.

Diane: I hope you don’t feel the need to be that way with me.

Ashley: Oh, diane, I’ve never felt the need to be anyone but myself with you.

Diane: Well, good. Then, maybe you’ll be straight with me and tell me how you’re really feeling.

Ashley: Oh, well… I’m tired of all the questions and the overwhelming concern and the sad looks from jack and tracy.

Diane: Well, that’s because they care about you.

Ashley: Yeah, it’s so suffocating. Makes me want to go elsewhere for my coffee.

Diane: All right, to be fair, you admitted to all of us that you didn’t know what was going on with you. You seemed genuinely lost, frightened, desperate for answers. No, really. And then you ran from that doctor’s appointment that traci and sharon worked so hard to make for you. Why did you do that? Were you afraid of what the doctor might find out?

Victor: Hello. How was your night?

Jordan: The accommodations stink. The food is worse.

Victor: You know, that’s the review I was aspiring to.

[ Jordan laughs ] So… where’s my granddaughter?

Jordan: Okay. Okay. You win. I prefer a chteau in france. Same deal as before. My freedom, a new life, and you get claire’s location.

Victor: You have… tendencies to be delusional, don’t you? There’ll be no deal. You know why? We know where claire is. We found the keys to the storage room. Rather sloppy on your part.

Jordan: I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Victor: You know exactly what I’m talking about. When my doctor gave me breztri for my copd Happy mother’s day! Some things never change. Like a mother’s love. Get something as timeless as a mother’s love at harryanddavid.Com. Life is a gift. Share more.

Traci: Jack and I didn’t know what else to do. And then I thought of you and your friendship. And I was hoping that you could talk to her, urge her to get treatment.

Alan: Well, of course, I’m happy to find out more about what’s going on with her, but I– I can’t treat her. I retired and my american license expired when I moved to france 10 years ago, so.

Traci: Yeah, I didn’t expect that you would be her doctor. I was just hoping you could get her past whatever is stopping her from getting help.

Alan: I certainly will do my best. We’ve been friends a long time. I care very much about ashley.

Traci: Oh, thank you. The family appreciates any help. And I just want my sister back.

Alan: Ah, of course. And does she know I’m here?

Traci: Yes, yes. I t– I told her that I had reached out to you. And honestly, I was worried she might think I overstepped.

Alan: Well, understandable, knowing ashley.

Traci: Yes, but she was really good with it. Um, I think she prefers the idea of talking to you over a doctor she’s never met before. So, I don’t think you’ll get any resistance unless…

[ Traci sighs ] Honestly, my sister’s moods can change on a dime.

Ashley: Don’t you have better things to do than harp on me about decisions I’ve made for my own well-being?

Diane: I’m not harping about anything. I’m just asking you.

Ashley: Then, what are you doing here? I mean, why are you fetching brownies for your grandson?

Diane: Ashley, I’m not looking for a fight.

Ashley: You are the co-ceo of jabot cosmetics. By the way, you never thanked me for letting you slide on in there without any kind of a fuss. Are you looking to get out, maybe? Because I could try to help you get fired if that’s what you really want.

Diane: I’m trying to be nice. If you don’t want my help, fine. But I can’t butt out completely. You see, I care about jack, and jack’s worried about you. So, that makes you my concern as well.

Ashley: Oh.

Jordan: Do you really think that I’d be so stupid to leave a set of keys lying around? [ Chuckles ] You’d better make a deal with me right now if you ever want to see your precious granddaughter alive again.

Victor: You should have taken my deal. You’d be lounging right now in some chteau in the south of france. Instead, you’re going to… die slowly… in this… luxurious place.

Jordan: You’re wrong, victor. You still need me.

Victor: I have you. No one knows where the hell you are. I’m the only one. And this time, I promise you… there’s no way out.

Jordan: You won’t find claire! You’ll be back! You’ll be back begging me to help! Victor!

Victoria: Oh, this is it. Number 23.

Cole: Hang on, hang on.

Victoria: Don’t worry.

Cole: I gotta check– I gotta check for signs of a trap. Here.

Victoria: It’s so quiet. What are you looking for?

Cole: There could be a wire. A trigger. Trigger for something here. Anything that looks suspicious. Okay. All right. It looks okay.

Victoria: Hold on. Wait, wait, wait. I’m– I’m scared… of what we might find.

Cole: Listen, I am, too. But we can’t wait any longer on this.

Victoria: Okay.

Cole: All right, listen. Maybe– maybe you just– you should step back, just in case, okay? Just… claire?

Victoria: Claire? Claire, are you in there? It’s mom and dad!

If you’re taking

an antidepressant,

Victoria: Claire? Sweetheart?

Cole: Okay, we gotta go in. Do you have the flashlight?

Victoria: Yeah. It’s here.

Claire: Here. Help me.

Victoria: Oh, my god!

Cole: Claire!

Victoria: Claire!

Ashley: Oh, please, diane. Just back the truck up. Drop the third degree, counselor. When you’ve all decided how I’m supposed to behave, and when I don’t behave that way, you get your shorts in a twist. I’m not some ice queen. I’m a red-blooded woman who had her heart broken. Does that mean I have to have professional help?

Diane: You asked for it yourself the other night. I was there.

Ashley: The more I thought about it, the more I realized it’s just heartbreak. I’ve gotten through it before, and I will get through it now.

Diane: Well, it doesn’t mean you don’t need professional help to do so.

Ashley: I will find my balance if it will get you all off of my back. I’ll try very hard not to be too extra. Although, I do find it very interesting that all of you people can live your lives however you want, messy as they are, without any kind of intervention. Well, I plan on doing the same. I’m gonna have some fun. So, you can either join my party or get out of my way.

[ Phone ringing ] Oh. Tell me something good.

Traci: Ashley, I’m here at the house with your friend, alan. He’s arrived from paris. He’s eager to see you.

Ashley: Oh, that is the best news I’ve had in ages. Tell him I can’t wait to see him. Gotta run.

Diane: What’s the rush?

Ashley: Well, finally, somebody in this town that I can have some fun with. I gotta go carpe some diem.

Diane: Ah, enjoy.

Ashley: Thanks. Oh, diane. Thank you so much for your concern. I mean, if it’s sincere.

Diane: And why wouldn’t it be?

Ashley: Oh, honey. Because you’re you. Ta.

Michael: Where the hell did you go?

Victor: To talk to my security team.

Michael: Well, why not do that with me?

Victor: Do I need my lawyer to talk to my damn security team?

Michael: But, victor, you need to find out–

Victor: Will you stop asking questions, for heaven’s sake? I think I found the answer. Seemingly, that jordan woman used the same alias… renting a hotel room as she did when she rented that storage unit.

Michael: So, you think cole and victoria are correct, that this is the place that jordan stashed claire?

Victor: Yeah, I’m certain of it.

Michael: But it still could be a trap.

Victor: I know how her mind works.

Michael: All right, then we need to get a security team down there. Victoria and cole shouldn’t face this by themselves.

Victor: They’re already on their way. I just hope in time to rescue claire.

Victoria: Oh, my god.

Cole: Claire.

Victoria: Cole, she’s in there, she’s in there. Help me!

Claire: Please get her off. Please, dad, get her off.

Victoria: Get her off!

Cole: Okay. Oh, my gosh.

Victoria: She’s not breathing.

Cole: Come here.

Claire: I can’t– I can’t– I can’T. [ Sobs ]

Victoria: Be careful. Please be careful. Come on, I got you.

[ Claire sobbing ]

Cole: Oh.

Victoria: Come here, I got you. You’re okay now.

Cole: You’re okay, baby.

Victoria: We got you.

Cole: You’re okay now.

Victoria: We’re gonna take you home. Shh, it’s okay.

[ Claire sobs ] No, it’s okay. I’ve got you. This skinny pop is so delicious.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Victor: Nikki, call me back, please. Third time I’ve left a message for her. She has not called back. It’s not like her.

[ Phone rings ] Yes, darling?

Victoria: We found her, daddy.

Victor: You did?

Victoria: She’s alive. She’s really shaken up, but she’s okay.

Victor: That makes me very happy, sweetheart. Are the police there? Is my team there?

Victoria: No, no, not yet. Uh, but cole will talk to them. I need to get claire some food. Daddy, I really don’t think she’s up to answering any questions right now, no matter what the police want. Cole will handle that, okay?

Victor: You bring claire home as soon as you can. All right? This makes me so happy.

[ Michael laughs ] Wow.

[ Ashley gasps ]

Alan: Ashley!

Ashley: It’s true! You’re really here.

Alan: In the flesh.

Ashley: Oh, I’m so happy to see you.

Alan: Oh, me too. You look wonderful.

Ashley: Did you follow me? Honestly, they are keeping me on such a short leash these days.

Diane: I said I was picking up brownies for harrison. If I’d have known you were coming back here, I would have had you deliver them yourself. Ah, I’m diane, traci and ashley’s sister-in-law. I’m jack’s wife.

Alan: Alan laurent, nice to meet you.

Diane: Nice to meet you. Are you two old friends?

Ashley: No, diane, that’s not going to happen. Alan flew all the way from paris to see me and I’m going to take you out to lunch. Please tell me you’re hungry.

Alan: I am famished.

Ashley: Oh, let’s get out of here. Bye-bye.

Diane: Bye.

Ashley: Bye-bye. I’ve got this great place, you’re gonna love it.

Diane: And that is?

Traci: Ashley’s psychologist friend from paris. I had hoped that he would be able to talk to her one-on-one, but she seems pretty amped up.

Diane: Ah, yeah, I just had a little run-in with her at crimson lights.

Traci: Do you mean a confrontation?

Diane: No, no, not exactly, but I– I think I met one of her alters. She was feisty, but if I’m being honest, a little fun.

Traci: Alters? Are you making a joke? I thought you were trying to help.

Diane: I am. Gosh, I’ve been nothing but supportive, and I have taken my fair share of hits from ashley even before these personality swings of hers.

Traci: Well, you’re being awfully flip about something that is dead serious. It’s almost like you’re enjoying seeing her like this.

Diane: Traci, do you really think that of me?

[ Diane scoffs ] W– when will this family stop punishing me for my past and stop assuming the worst about me? Do I really need to still prove that I’m being sincere?

Traci: Apparently, you do.

Victoria: All right, here you are. Listen, why don’t I make some tea? And– and you can go upstairs and take a hot shower.

Victor: Sweetheart.

Victoria: I imagine you want to get some sleep.

Victor: My goodness, come here. Come here. Tell us what happened.

Victoria: Daddy, she really hasn’t said very much. She’s– she’s shaken up.

Cole: Yeah, we probably should let her get some rest first.

Victoria: Yeah.

Claire: It’s okay. Now, that I’m here, safe with all of you, I… I think I can talk about it. I want to. I want– I want to get it out.

Victor: Okay. Then, why don’t you do that? Sit down, let’s do it, okay?

Claire: After your anniversary party, I went to return harrison’s good luck bunny. He’d shown it to me earlier and… I found it at the lounge. Jordan must have followed me somehow. Gotten into the abbott house. I was upstairs. Harrison had asked me to read him a story. And then, he went to the bathroom and… jordan appeared out of nowhere. She… she chloroformed me.

Victoria: That must have been so terrifying.

Claire: The next thing I knew, I… I was being dragged into that storage unit. I knew if jordan had her way, that was going to be my only chance to escape, so… I fought back hard. I almost got away. But then… that woman collapsed on top of me. I think she must have had a heart attack from all the exertion. I was pinned down. I couldn’t get her off of me. I was trapped underneath her dead weight.

Cole: What, you– you were trapped like that all that time?

Claire: I really thought I was going to die there, too.

[ Claire sniffles ] If you’re one of the millions of people with diabetes

Alan: Ah, thank you.

Ashley: So–

Abby: Mom!

Ashley: Hi!

Abby: Hi. I love this outfit.

Ashley: Thank you.

Abby: Wow, it’s good to see you.

Ashley: You, too. This is alan, my friend from paris. And this is my daughter, abby. She owns this fine establishment.

Alan: Nice to meet you.

Abby: Nice to meet you, all the way from paris. I’m sure you two have a lot to catch up on, so I won’t interrupt. But, um, I’ll send over all your favorites.

Ashley: Perfect.

Abby: Enjoy.

Ashley: We will. So, tell me. How is paris faring without me?

Alan: Well, the city of lights is a bit dimmer.

Ashley: Oh. [ Laughs ] What about you? Are you surviving?

Alan: Oh, I’m managing to get through retirement. Tackling all those home projects I’ve been putting off for years. Getting through that pile of books that’s been haunting me.

Ashley: Yeah.

Alan: How about you? Last time we saw each other in paris, you were, uh… on edge. Upset about your breakup with tucker.

Ashley: I put all that behind me. I’m a new woman, can’t you tell?

Alan: You do seem happier.

Ashley: Mm-hmm.

Alan: But I have known you a long time, and you don’t have to pretend with me.

Ashley: Oh, honey.

Abby: Well, this is a new vintage that we’re trying here. I’m sure being from france, you’re a champagne connoisseur.

Ashley: Oh, listen, they drink it like water over there. And you know what? It is the best remedy for jet lag, right?

Alan: Yes. Well, then let’s have some.

Ashley: Okay.

Alan: Mm. It’s very good.

Abby: Hm. Mom, what do you think?

Ashley: Mm. I have never met a glass of bubbles I didn’t like.

Abby: Well, great. Uh, then, it’s on the house.

Ashley: Oh, that’s so sweet of you.

Alan: Oh. Thank you. Would you care to join us?

Abby: You know, actually, um, I’m covering for my manager. So, rain check?

Ashley: Okay, next time.

Abby: Yeah. Bye.

Ashley: Yeah. So… where were we?

Alan: I believe you were telling me how you were doing.

Ashley: Mm. No, I think I was trying to evade that question, actually.

Alan: You’ve been doing a very good job of that so far.

Ashley: Well, we both know that traci and jack flew you here to analyze me, right? They want you to probe my deepest, innermost feelings and thoughts. Is that what you want to do, alan?

[ Michael smooches ]

Lauren: Oh, my goodness. I didn’t think you’d be able to join me. I thought you’d be all tied up with the search. But in the event you were going to show up, look what I ordered you.

Michael: Oh, bless you. Bless you.

Lauren: Oh.

Michael: Good news, finally. They found claire. Alive.

Lauren: Oh. Thank god. Oh, nikki’s going to be so relieved. Jordan dead, claire found. Maybe this nightmare can finally be over.

Michael: Well…

Lauren: And you must be relieved as well.

Michael: Here’s hoping that we’re even more relieved once we get news from los angeles that sheila is indeed very dead.

Lauren: Is that what has you so unsettled? That you’re hoping, like I am, that it really was sheila in the morgue?

Michael: That and, um… I think victor is keeping something from me.

[ Lauren laughs ]

Lauren: Well, of course victor is keeping something from you. That’s how he operates. He always keeps a little detail to himself.

Michael: True. But this time, I don’t think it’s a little detail. I’m afraid it’S… it’s about jordan. About her death.

Lauren: You said that she fell into a river from a height that no one could survive.

Michael: Yeah, that’s what victor told me. But I haven’t been able to confirm it.

Lauren: Oh, you think he’s lying about that?

Michael: Just a sense I have. But I’ve known that man a long time.

Claire: But I knew I had to stop. I couldn’t let myself think about what might happen being trapped there like that. So, I… I imagined being free. Back out in the world. Being here. With you. Being safe in my room. And I got angry. Thinking about jordan. Everything she’s done to me. To all of you. That anger gave me the strength to maneuver myself so that I could get the phone out of that woman’s pocket and I could call you. But then the phone died and I… had to try not to panic all over again.

Victoria: The call was garbled. I– I couldn’t hear anything but a faint voice. I couldn’t make out what you were saying. Just one word. Mom.

Cole: Your mother. She knew it was you. She insisted that we go to that motel room where they found harrison. And even though the police said they had searched it, she knew there had to be a clue. There had to be something there that was going to tell us where you were.

Claire: Motel? Oh, my god, she took harrison too? Is he okay?

Victoria: He’s okay. He’s safe.

[ Claire exhales sharply ]

Claire: How did you find me?

Victoria: There was a doll in the room and…

Cole: It was like the ones that my mother used to collect.

Victoria: Jordan had hidden a set of keys in the back of the doll. And they looked like the ones that billy had from that same storage facility.

Cole: We took a gamble. You know the rest.

Claire: Harrison’s okay? You promise? Can I see him?

Victoria: He’s safe, I promise you. I don’t think that kyle and summer are going to let him out of their sight anytime soon, but he’s safe.

Claire: He must have been so scared. He must still be so scared. That… that trauma. Where is she? Where’s jordan? Did they arrest her? We can’t ever let her hurt that sweet boy ever again.

Victor: The bitch is dead.

If you have chronic

kidney disease you can reduce

Ashley: In spite of the fact that none of my siblings actually has a medical degree, they’ve decided that something’s wrong with me. And that’s why you’re here. They want you to figure out what that is.

Alan: Yeah. I’m aware of the reasons your family has very suddenly offered me a first class ticket here to genoa city. And I believe you are too.

Ashley: Mm-hmm. So, you mean to tell me that the only reason you’re here is on a professional level?

Alan: Well, look, of course I, um, want to know how you’re doing. Last time I saw you, you were struggling and that concerns me. But, as I told traci, I’m retired, I no longer have a license to practice in the united states, and I would never treat a friend.

Ashley: Hm. We are good friends, aren’t we?

Alan: Yes. I took their offer so I could be with one of my favorite people. Your last trip to paris was very brief and, well, I wanted to see the place you called home. It always brings you back. But, if you don’t want me here, it is– it is an open ticket. I can– I can go back any time.

Ashley: Oh, no, I want you here. I really want you here. And of course, I’m thrilled to show you around town, but I just have to let you in on a tiny little secret. The rumors about my, uh, mental breakdown? Highly exaggerated.

Alan: Well, I’m glad to hear that.

Ashley: Oh, of course. Oh, my sweetie, you are the answer to my prayers. The perfect solution for ashley. This visit will not be clinical at all. Time for some joie de vivre.

Lauren: Well, if sheila is lurking in the shadows, she better not come anywhere near me or she’s going to be sorry.

Michael: Ooh, my warrior wife.

Lauren: Well, luckily I have other things to focus on. I’m very busy at work. This morning, I filled in for nikki on a big meeting. I mean, she just felt like it was too much coming into the office today, which is completely understandable given everything that’s been going on. She was very confident that you and victor would find claire, but it was just, you know, waiting on that news was having her worried sick.

Michael: What? She didn’t show up at the office, where’d she go?

Lauren: She went home. Why?

Michael: Just now?

Lauren: Hours ago.

Michael: I’ve been at the ranch with victor all morning. She wasn’t there and victor’s been trying to reach her.

Lauren: Nikki, it’s lauren. Call me as soon as you can.

Michael: Straight to voicemail?

Lauren: Yes.

Michael: That’s what victor was getting.

Lauren: Jack, hi, it’s lauren. Have you seen nikki? I– I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about. Call me when you can.

Claire: The fact that she kidnapped harrison, an innocent child, just proves she was beyond redemption.

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Claire: I’m glad she’s dead. I’m grateful. For the sake of everyone that she’s hurt, who just had to live in fear of her.

Victoria: That would be all of us. But mostly you.

Claire: Is it true? Am I really finally free of her?

Victor: I promise you, she’ll never hurt anyone again.

Jordan: You will not win. You will not win. You will not win. You will not beat me. You will not beat me. I will find a way out of this hellhole. And I will make you pay… victor newman!

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

[ Drew and nina moaning ] Why — I can’t believe we did this again! What the hell is wrong with us?! Ahh. You may regret it now, but, uh… you were enjoying yourself.

[ Laughs ] And… I’m finding a few less things to hate about you than I was an hour ago. Well, the sex was… mutually consensual. But you know what? I certainly regret that you are such a horrible, vengeful person. Well, if it helps, think about sending me to prison as foreplay. Hilarious. Look. I am done working for the day, really would like to get out of here, so do you mind letting me know how long you plan to lecture me about how awful a person I am before you kind of straighten up your clothes and, uh, get out of here?

[ Knock on door ]

[ Knock on door ] Ms. Ramirez. Ah. Please. No, no. Call me natalia. I’m glad to find you here by yourself. And why is that? Well, I have some questions about deception, and you seem like you are the only serious person who’s involved in running the company. That’s just not true. Isn’t it, though? Ms. Coe seems pretty neurotic, and there’s that crazy attorney who redrafted allie’s contract. I don’t — okay. Look. Lucy is lucy, and where scott might be eccentric, he’s also very competent. You have yet to meet our majority shareholder, tracy quartermaine, who’s a force of nature. I might call her

too serious. Then, of course, there’s brook lynn. Yeah. Another quartermaine. Okay. Olivia: Ahh! It’s the moment of truth. Look at this. How does it look? Well, remember what I said. I am not gonna be a pushover. I’m gonna tell you what I really think. Okay? Could’ve jazzed up the presentation a little bit, but it smells very good. Doesn’t look like anything we’ve had before. Well, maybe sasha is trying to broaden our horizons, huh? What about that?

[ Door opens ] Hey, you. Hey, hey. Wiley!

[ Laughs ] I just got back from work. Hi, wiley! And melanie said that you wanted wiley and me to give you our opinions on something. -Hmm! -What’s that?! It’s a tetrazzini. Is it an animal or is it a vegetable? It’s just another way of cooking chicken, sweetheart, and you like chicken, right? Yeah. Well, then… you’re gonna love what sasha made. Well, I made two casseroles, so there’s plenty for everyone. Enjoy.

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Rock music playing ] Thank you. Dex heller. Jason morgan. I know who you are. What do you want? It’s about sonny.


Tell sonny that I don’t want any trouble, but I did apply to the police academy, and if I get in, i am gonna be a cop. Sonny didn’t send me. I’m here because of josslyn. She’s afraid sonny might have you killed. And I promised her I would not let that happen. No offense, but how are you gonna stop it? I’ll figure it out. Thanks, but no thanks. If I can protect myself. I can respect that. But I’m not doing it for you. I’m doing it for josslyn. And for sonny. I think you’ve got your motives crossed. Sonny’s the one who wants me dead. Sonny knows better than to target a cop. I mean, he should. He did. He should’ve known better than to go after cyrus renault, but he still sent me to kill him.

[ Indistinct conversations ] Could I — can I have a menu? Thank you. Of all the gin joints in all the world. Hello, valentin. Hello, anna. Can I buy you a glass of wine? Sure. That’d be lovely. Thank you. What’s up? Pouilly-fuissĂ©. Yeah? Mmm. Pretty nice. Yeah. Um, can I get one of those, please? Thank you. So, how you been? Busy. Good. It agrees with you. Oh. You think? Thank you. Yeah, you’re engaged. You’re, uh, energized. As opposed to what? Have I been slouching around like a sloth all these years and didn’t know it? No, no. You’re always beautiful. You’re also driven to be first-class in everything that you do. In fact, if you were to ever hang up your dancing shoes, give over your badge, and try your luck as a tree surgeon, I’m sure you’d be brilliant at it. Well, that’s where you’re wrong. You know. I have a black thumb. I can’t tell you how many plants robin bought me that ended up in the dustbin. Well, as luck would have it, we don’t have to find out, ’cause it turns out that being police commissioner of port charles suits you. I happen to think it suits me, too. That’s probably the cleaning staff. They must have moved to another office. I’ll make sure that they don’t come back. Hey, it’s drew cain. Can you tell housekeeping I’m working late and I don’t need my office cleaned tonight? Thank you. Great. Crisis averted. Oh, my god. I am so late! I am so late! Um… yes! Madison! I got held up. Please tell congressman mcconkey that I am sorry and I’ll be right there. Oh, it’s, uh — no, it’s totally fine that he had to reschedule. It’s fine. Oh, but please tell the congressman that I know how busy he is and I’m more than happy to come to him when we reschedule. Thank you so much, madison. Okay, I almost missed a very important meeting because of…this. So let’s just not have this be a habit. I wouldn’t call twice a habit. No, it’s more like a mistake followed by a bigger mistake. I want to focus on what I just overheard. Representative mcconkey? Seems like an odd fit for crimson. What was that about? Larry mcconkey is a family friend. He was in the same class as my father, and he reached out to me because he has A… exclusive announcement that he wants to reveal in a interview. And if it isn’t suitable for crimson, I can always run it in the invader. Well, I want to go with you when you meet with him. Mcconkey’s a major player in the house, and if he reached out to aurora — no, he reached out to me. Well, I want to take advantage of this opportunity and I’d like to make his acquaintance. And who exactly would I say you are? My chauffeur? Just tell him I’m the guy you sent to prison and whose clothes you like to rip off every once in a while. Taste this. Oh. What is it? Just — just tell me what you think. Okay.

[ Mutters ] It’s great. You sure? Y-you’re not just saying that? No, t-this is great. Sasha, what’s going on here? Oh, I’m auditioning to be the quartermaines’ cook, and I made a tetrazzini, which I am now really regretting. I mean, why did i pick something that olivia can probably make in her sleep? Wait. Hold on. You might work here, too? Sasha, this is great. Why am I just hearing about this now? Well, it just came about this afternoon. The quartermaines need a cook, and olivia really likes that shepherd pie that I made, so… mm-hmm. …She wants to hire me, but she wanted me to audition first by cooking something tonight. I-I would’ve really liked some time to practice the dish, but the job comes with room and board, so I couldn’t say no. Wait. So you might live here, too? Yeah. I really hope that it works out because I’m supposed to be out of my apartment by the end of the month, and the rental market is really insane right now. Besides… I would really like the job. But I-I don’t want to infringe o-on your thing. Wait. Wha– what? Would you feel crowded if I were living here, too?


I know we only just met, but I can’t imagine my life without you.

[Dog whimper] () Alright. Everybody stop stalling and eat it. Okay, boys, I will take this one for the team and be the guinea pig. That’s actually pretty good. Yeah? Yeah. Try it yourself. Okay. Is it spaghetti or is it a casserole? Oh, it’s both, actually. What’s a casserole? Casserole. Spelled c-a-s-s-e-r-o-l-E. But what is it? I dunno. Okay. Enough! Enough. We’re gonna use the one-bite rule. Everyone is gonna take one bite. If you don’t like it, you can eat a banana and cheese and crackers, but we are all gonna try it, okay? I will join you. Mm. You weren’t kidding. This is good. Yeah. Right? Who knew sasha was so talented? Oh. What do you think, you guys? You like it? I like it! If I eat it all, can I still have a banana?

[ Laughter ] Yeah, yeah. Sure thing, bud. What about you? My little picky eater. You like it? Yeah! This is so much better than your spaghetti.

[ Coughs ] Can I have it tomorrow night, too? Maxie: This is the disruptor nourishing moisturizer. It’s part of our new deceptive skincare line. Oh, I really like the scent. And the texture is nice, too. But does it work? Because I’m not gonna have allie hawking some bogus cream. If she’s gonna be identified with a product, it’s got to really give good results. Of course, it works. All of our products are rigorously tested. Everything we make does what we say it will. The most important thing deception has is our customers’ trust — their belief in our brand and in us. Well, you’re clearly a very effective marketer. But, look, what I really want to talk about is, what does alison’s music manager exactly do here at deception? Um, okay. Brook lynn has had several important roles at deception over the last few years. That just makes me wonder why none of the positions held her interest for very long. No, no, no. That’s not how I would describe it. Well, I understand that brook lynn had her own brief singing career for a while. When she got tired of that, she moved on to music management because her mom did it. With all due respect, that is not very fair to brook lynn. She didn’t have any choice but to give up singing. It’s not what she wanted. And while, yes, she was introduced to the music industry by her mother and her dad, actually, she genuinely loves it, and she believes in and is very serious about the artists she represents. So, then, when did she become really serious about face creams? Because it just seems to me that alison is putting her career in — in the hands of this wealthy dilettante who really doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life, so she tries a little bit of this and a little bit of that and basically changes careers like some people change hairstyles. I know you went to work for sonny because michael hired you. He wanted you to get evidence against sonny, and you did. You still have it? No. If I did, I’d have given it to commissioner devane. What was it? Ask michael. Dex… I told josslyn I’m not gonna let sonny kill you. That means I’m not gonna kill you, either. I learned a lot from sonny. He’s smart. He’s cautious. He understood that there’s certain risks not worth taking. He doesn’t think that way anymore. No, he doesn’T. So I need to know how sonny got in over his head, starting with his deal with pikeman. I like sitting here with you. It’s comfortable. It’s familiar. Well, we’ve known each other a long time. I thought about you a lot while I was out of the country. You were out of the country? What, you were doing business abroad? No. I was taking charlotte back to boarding school in switzerland. She went back? Willingly? It was her idea. I mean, despite the fact that it was victor who took her there in the first place, she likes it. She has friends there and equestrian events. And she wanted to get out of port charles ’cause it hasn’t been very good for her. I don’t need to tell you that. No. I’m aware of the things that happened to her lately and my part in that. I’ll always regret that night. But I am very grateful that she felt well enough to go back to switzerland and — I mean, if that’s what she wants. Me too. I miss her. Of course you do. I miss you, too. I miss having you in my life. And I know that wasn’t possible while charlotte was in town, but she’s — she’s away at boarding school now. Is it crazy to think that maybe we can see each other again?


I’m not making any promises, but I will think about introducing you to congressman mcconkey — on one condition. And that would be? That we both agree that… this can never happen again. That’s fine with me. Already forgot about it.

[ Knock on door ] I’ve already forgotten about it, too. I thought I told them to — willow: Drew? Are you in there? It’s willow!

[ Objects shuffling ]

[ Door opens ] Willow! Hey! I-I thought I heard somebody knocking. Come on in. Willow! [ Chuckles ] So sorry. We didn’t — we didn’t hear you. Nina, did you, uh — did you lock the door? Eh– I-if I did, I didn’t mean to.

[ Clears throat ] The, uh — the rep was a suit named hume. Sonny must have met with him three or four times. Was there anybody else? Valentin cassadine. He’s the one who set up the initial meeting, and then when sonny wanted to back out, valentin came back. So why did sonny change his mind about working with pikeman? He thought it was too risky. The first shipment that they had us move was this, uh — this plastic explosive. It’s a classified weapon. It’s supposed to be for special forces. It’s not supposed to be for sale. It’s a major nsa violation. But if sonny had been busted, it would have been 20 years minimum. And you got a recording of it? I gave it to michael like we agreed. He decided not to use it. Did you keep a copy for yourself for insurance? No, I thought it would be safer to not have anything to tie me to the video. Alright. So what — so what about cassadine? Did he do anything else besides set up the meeting? Yeah. Yeah, he met with hume the same day that someone tried to take sonny out at the metro court. How do you know that? I was out for a run. I saw hume get out of a car at the cosmopolitan hotel with cassadine. Are you sure… that this was the same day somebody shot at sonny? Positive. There’s a date stamp on the picture. You got that picture? You caught me off guard there. Really? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, really. I thought that… …that we agreed that there was just too much hurt and damage, you know, and that that door was just permanently closed. Anna, I’m rattling around in that huge house all by myself. A house that I bought for you and me to share. And I miss you. Will you let me take you out to dinner? Maybe we can move beyond the past? I’m gonna have to think about that before I can give you an answer if that’S… well, you’re willing to think about it. That’s a good start. Not making any promises, though. Mm-hmm. I mean, my feelings for you didn’t just… disappear overnight. You know, it’s really difficult for us to go separate ways after everything we had. But I’m just not sure if I’M… ready to go down that path again, you know, ’cause maybe t-there’s just more heartbreak. I think there’s only one way to find out.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Saved by the bell! Yeah.

[ Chuckles ] Who do I have to thank for that? Go. Duty calls, yeah. Keep poor charles safe. I’ll call you. Sure.


Pursue it. Okay. Look. I’m happy todiscuss deception with you, but if you’re here to enlist my help to undermine brook lynn’s role as blaze’s music manager, you’re barking up the wrong tree. Brook lynn is my best friend. She’s also a consummate professional. She understands all aspects of the music industry, creative, logistical, financial. Sure, brook lynn’s mom may have shown her the ropes when it comes to the music industry, but brook lynn’s been doing it on her own ever since. Oh, come on.

[ Chuckles ] To say that brook lynn quartermaine has been doing it on our own, that’s actually laughable because I believe that the term for it is “nepo baby” — when somebody’s parents and grandparents — I mean, in this case, brook lynn’s entire family — paved the way for her. And the phrase “did it on her own” should be saved for people like alison who actually didn’t know anybody in the music industry and still made it as a star. This is not a competition. They can both be good at what they do. Well, that remains to be seen. I’ m sorry. I tried knockinga little while ago, but you must not have heard me. Um, I-I tried to leave a message with the front desk, but they said you were still in here working, so I came back. I can see you’re busy, though, so, um, we could totally talk another time. Oh, no. Stay, stay. Willow. No, we just, um — we finished, um, going over the crimson photo budget, and drew was very generous and gave me everything I wanted. But now we are finished. So I will leave you two alone.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Nina: Bye. Nina. Wait. Is there something? Do you need something? Oh, no. It’s just, um… I was kind of thrown when I saw you and drew in here together. Well, we work together.

Crimson wouldn’t run very well if we don’t talk. No. Right. Of course. I-I — I guess I meant “thrown” in a good way. If drew can still sit across from you and calmly discuss normal things like a photo budget after you sent him to prison, then… he must be a pretty forgiving person. Yes. He certainly is. And if the two of you can find a way to get along, then it makes me wonder if I haven’t been too harsh, holding on so tightly to my grievances, so… maybe it’s time I let my anger at you go, too. Thank you for saying that. I’m gonna go.

[ Chuckles ] Well, that was very unexpected.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. Definitely not what I was thinking was going to happen when I came to see you tonight. How did it feel to reach out to nina like that? Surprisingly okay. And I have you to thank — for being the bigger person and showing me the way. Sasha — should I just go back to the house? I was trying to give them some space, but maybe michael and olivia are just trying to think of the best way to turn me down nicely. Has anyone ever told you that you’re really cute when you’re nervous? Which you don’t have to be. Because, number one, what you made is delicious. Number two, no, I don’t feel crowded by you. In fact, I thought it was the other way around. And, number three, you’ll never be without a place to stay. If it comes down to it, you can live up in my room, and I’ll sleep down here with the beasts, where I belong. Please don’t misunderstand me. I-I hate being this mistrustful and — and suspicious. But I got a terrible wake-up call with alison’s first manager, linc. He exploited her, he abused her, and I had no idea what was even going on. What happened with linc was horrible. And you have every right to be worried about blaze. But brook lynn — she’s above-board, and she would never do anything to hurt your daughter. Are you — are you a mom? Yes, I have a son and two daughters. Okay. Good. Then you understand why I’m asking so many questions. I just — I want to protect my daughter, and I don’t want her represented by someone who just thinks that music is some, you know, fun break from tennis on tuesdays or something sweet and fun to do while she’s not planning her wedding. Okay, that’s not how brook lynn thinks at all. Let’s face it. Alison’s association with brook lynn is the only reason she’s the face of deception because my daughter’s bigger dreams have nothing to do with face cream. I’ve known brook lynn for a long time. And I’ve always thought that, for a quartermaine, she’s pretty well-adjusted, realistic, and hardworking. Blaze seems to think so, too, which makes me wonder. All these big dreams that you keep talking about? Are they your daughters or are they yours? So easy to, uh — to blame the mother, isn’t it? You’ll find that out when your kids get older. Just something to think about. Have a nice day. It was one thing when my mom got alzheimer’s, but then we started noticing things that seemed…off. She developed agitation that may happen with dementia due to alzheimer’s disease. Sometimes she’d fidget with her fingers, get suddenly overwhelmed, and even throw things. And that was just never her. So we asked her doctor what else we could do.


Wow. [ Chuckles ] Is that all it took? Self-identifying as a beast? Michael: What’s going on here? Oh, just, uh, horsin’ around. Ohh. Didn’t expect to see you two together. Guess it makes sense that you should meet. So this is who you were texting? I don’t know what’s going on here, but it’s definitely above my pay grade. Not that I have a pay grade yet. Oh. Actually… you do.

[ Envelope opening ] Welcome to the police academy… new recruit heller. Thank you, commissioner. I know you played a big role in this. No. Not as big as you might think. You earned your spot. Guess I’ll be taking you up on that offer after all. Just promise me you’ll be good to josslyn. That’s a promise I will gladly keep if I get the chance. Thank you again, commissioner. Congratulations. Did you get some new information from dex? Yeah. So, um… pikeman’s rep is a guy named hume, right? Correct. Dex witnessed valentin and hume meeting on the same day the sniper team tried to take sonny out at the metro court pool. No. No, that’s impossible. You are giving me too much credit, willow. You’re literally one of the most forgiving people I’ve ever met. I like to think so, but with nina, it is different. I mean, after everything she did, I had to distance myself, but maybe it is time I stopped being so angry at her — for both of our sakes. Well, you’ve got my support, whatever you choose. Thank you. So, what did you want to talk to me about? I have been thinking about the proposal from the nonprofit, and I just wanted to get more information. And michael suggested I circle back to you since you were the one who had the preliminary contact with the organization. Yeah, the new tomorrow institute. Absolutely. Have a seat. What do you want to know? Can you give me a little more information about what it is they’re looking for? Sure. Um… from our conversation, what I know is that they want to educate the general public because most people just really don’t understand how life-saving stem-cell and bone-marrow transplants from cord blood can be, especially when it comes to incredibly difficult to treat cancers a-and diseases. And the therapy is in its infancy, of course, but the — the success rate is climbing every day. Yeah. I get that. Before I got leukemia, a lot of that was foreign to me, too. Right. That’s what they want to do. T-they want to get that information. They want to make it easier to digest for the general public, and they’d like a face and a — and a voice to help spread awareness, somebody that’s young and vibrant and articulate and a survivor — like you. I mean, you’d be perfect. What exactly would I be doing on a daily basis? Well, you’d be the first person to have the job, so I think it’s yours to define, but I’m assuming you’d be doing some public speaking, probably making some videos, psas. I know they want you to advocate for fundraising. All of that seems within my capabilities. Definitely. Now, I also know that they want to keep as much money as possible for the foundation, right? So, I mean, the pay would be low, but you and michael are pretty wealthy, so I’m assuming maybe you wouldn’t want to take a salary anyway. Well, I’m not sure. I mean, the last thing I would ever want to do is take money away from someplace that needs it, but I have always paid my own way, and I’m really proud of that. However, having the flexibility to spend more time with wiley and amelia might be a bigger priority to me right now than a paycheck. If you decide to take on the role, I’m sure they’re gonna work it out. It’s pretty amazing, you know, that you’re such a good person that causes like this know they can reach out to you for help. Well, I probably should be humble and say I’m no angel, but I… I really like you thinking that I am. Maxie! Great! You’re still here. I’m trying really hard not to be. What’s up? I’m celebrating. Ugh. Celebrating what? Willow spoke to me — with actual words, said not in anger and not just in my presence, to my face of her own choice. That is real progress. Please tell me how it happened. Well, believe it or not, it’s because of drew. I did not see that coming. Yeah, neither did I. And she only talked to me tonight because she thinks that drew and i are friends now when we actually hate each other more than ever. Even the sex is hateful. The what, now? Yes, wiley, you can pet the horses, but please do not — and I repeat — do not even think about feeding them gum again. I know where the carrots are. I can feed them those instead. Okay. Cody: They would absolutely love that. Just make sure you only do one carrot at a time, okay? Alright.

[ Chuckles ] Okay, um, I don’t want to be pushy, but I am going a little out of my mind here. What did you think about my dinner? I think that you should probably open up a food-delivery service because that tetrazzini was delicious. You liked it?! I loved it. So did the boys. See? I told you you were worrying about nothing. Okay, okay, okay! I can hear everybody gushing about sasha’s cooking all the way up here. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, okay? Frankly, I thought there was a little too much oregano, not enough basil. That would have improved the dish immensely. I’m — I’m with you there, mama Q. Sasha brought me a plate, and it was delicious, except for the oregano. See that? That’s a man after my own heart. Okay. Other than that minor miscue, michael and I both thought that the dish was excellent. Even the boys liked it. They’re notoriously hard to please. So… what do you think? Can you put a dinner like that on the table every single night, plus breakfasts and lunches? Because, if you can, the job is yours.


You think? You want tobe the new quartermaine cook? Yes! I would love the job! Thank you! Thank you so much! Ohh! You earned it, honey. You did. I’d like to personally request tetrazzini at least once a week. You got it. Ah. Perfect.

[ Water splashes ] Did you guys hear that? Yeah. What’s he doing in there? Oh, I’ll handle it. Wiley? Do I hear splashing? Never a dull moment around here. But I promise you — you will get used to it. I can’t wait. I know I’m gonna love working for the quartermaines. And I promise you that everyone in the family, young and old, will have healthy, filling meals in between all the amazing dinners that you make. I’m sure we will. So, you want to go up to the house? I will show you your room and where everything is. Definitely. Great. We’re good here, right, cody? Absolutely. Okay. I don’t know… exactly what is going on between the two of you, but I think we better establish a couple of ground rules. Lay ’em on us, mama Q. Okay. What the two of you do on your own time is completely up to you. But let us be very clear from the get-go that there will be no late-night tippy-toeing into sasha’s bedroom while there are children in the house, which is basically all the time. You have nothing to worry about olivia. I promise. Okay. Good. I’m not the morality police. Far from it. But… the house is full of impressionable children and gossipy adults. You got it?

[ Chuckles ] Okay. I’ll see you up at the house. You two are very cute together. But let’s be very, very clear. I got my eyes on you.

[ Sasha and cody laugh ] I know. It’s crazy. I can’t even explain it to myself why it keeps happening. “Keeps” happening, nina? How many times have you two…? Ahh. Well, you know how it is, you know? One thing leads to another, and before you know it, it’s just happening. No, no, no, no, no, no. T-that’s something you say about online shopping, not sex with your sworn enemy — because you and drew do hate each other. It just happened. I don’t know what to tell you. It’s not like it’s hateful during. It’s — it’s great. It’s actually really great. Anyway, when it’s over, I despise him even more, along with myself, but that’s a conversation for another time. A therapist would have a field day with you. Okay. Can you just not think about the sex for a second? Alright. Willow thinks that drew is this kind of stubble-wearing superhero that can do no wrong, and the only reason that she is talking to me is because she thinks that drew and i are getting along. How do I keep drew on my side? Won’t the great sex help with that? No, I can’t — I can’t rely on that. I-I just — I need to throw him some other kind of bone to keep him happy with me. Wouldn’t it be funny, after everything that’s happened, if drew was the reason you got your family back? So, dex texted me the picture he took. Oh, that’s the cosmopolitan hotel, yeah? Yeah. You see the date stamp? That can easily be doctored. What would dex get from that? Nothing. Oh, son of a bitch. Valentin was lying the whole time. About what? About everything. When nikolas disappeared, laura and kevin, they had to go over to europe to try to search for him. And the only lead they had was chechnya, which is unstable, dangerous. So valentin volunteered to go with them. He was gone for two months. And that day… right? July 6. He called me. He called me and he said he was in geneva. But he wasn’T. He was here in port charles. With hume.

[ Sighs ] Okay, so pikeman briefed me and hamish about the metro court shooting. Basically to prep us for the job at the warehouse. It was a two-man sniper team, same as us. They got a room, they set up in the metro court, they took the shot, and then they evacuated to an extraction point where they met senior personnel who were running the op. Roman hume… and valentin? Look. They didn’t give us any names. But it sure looks like it. Well, clearly, valentin does more for pikeman than just set meetings. I was just with him. You know, when you texted me, I was — I was with him. I bumped into him at the metro court bar, and he said he’d been out of the country, that he went to switzerland to deliver his daughter back to boarding school… that it was her idea. But now I’m wondering… if it doesn’t just make it easier for him to do pikeman’s bidding. You know, switzerland’s a neutral country. It’s famously discreet. God. Half the world’s arms is sold there. He has a perfect reason to return at any point, whenever pikeman requires. So what do you want to do? Remember I told you that I was at the wsb with him? With valentin? Trainees. He was very good. But I was better.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Line ringing ] I knew it. You never could resist my animal magnetism. I’m not sure I’d put it that way. Just was… I was thinking about your dinner invitation.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

You know, it’s really too bad that Stephanie had to run off to that meeting. It would have been so nice for us all to be together. That’s okay though. We were able to say goodbye and we’ll video chat with her a lot. Actually, I’m not sure if you guys know this, but Stephanie is the one who encouraged us to take this trip.

Oh. Yeah. Next thing I know, we’re booked on a flight to Hong Kong. Well, I think it’s great that two of you are getting away for a while. And I bet your parents are happy about it, huh, Wendy? Oh, yeah, that’s an understatement. Well, listen, don’t go having a great time. So much so that you don’t come back. No, don’t worry.

We’ll be back. Okay. Promise.

Want some?

Hey, pretty girl. Hey, pretty. Hi, Ava. So, uh, you two having a little daddy daughter breakfast before school today? There’s no school today. Yeah. We’re going to the aquarium. I’m, I’m chaperoning today. Ah, I see. That sounds like fun. So, um, What’s your favorite kind of fish, Rachel? A great big orca. Oh. Like in Free Willy.

You know what’s funny? Orcas aren’t even fish. They’re mammals. It’s true. Oh, then I guess a goldfish? That works.

Well, you two have a great time, alright? Thank you.

You two want some company? Oh, Rachy, Rachy, Rachy, Rachy! You just made my day! You made mine too! Oh, honey. Oh, sweetie girl. Alex!

Rise and shine! I made you coffee and a very special breakfast. And I do hope, Monsieur Kiriakis, that you have a big appetite.

Alex!

Alex, you do have to go to work, don’t you? Okay, then. Guess I’ll be your alarm clock.

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

So, are you going to learn Mandarin while you’re there? I have been teaching him some, and his accent’s pretty good. I don’t know about that, but, uh, I do plan on, you know, putting myself in some in person courses while we’re there, and, uh, I plan on volunteering at a clinic, so. Hey, that’s great, son. Yeah. And as much as I’m going to miss you at the hospital, and I am, it’s so great for you two to get away, take a break from Salem.

Well, listen. How about breakfast? Oh, I’ll help. Okay. Um, I don’t need much help, but I’ll take the comfy.

Looks like we might have a few minutes to ourselves here, huh?

Listen, buddy. I know you’re a savvy, intelligent dude. And you’ve got great instincts. I gotta tell you, the culture in China is very different from ours. Yeah, don’t, don’t worry. Wendy’s already been kinda giving me the do’s and don’ts. You know, like, uh, don’t wear your shoes inside someone’s house. Uh, never leave your chopsticks standing straight up in your food.

And, uh, oh, and never, uh, use someone’s first name unless you’re told to. Oh. Yeah. Sounds like you got it all covered. I like the chapstick’s bed, I didn’t know about that. You know, um, A little bird told me, That right before you and Wendy were rescued from that terrible situation, You had a little impromptu wedding?

Yes, yes we did. As we know, we thought we were going to die. So we only had A few minutes left, so. We decided to get unofficially married, but then once we were rescued and Oxygen returned to our prefrontal cortexes. Thankfully, we decided to talk about it and Decided that, you know, there’s no need to rush things.

Maybe someday, huh?

Listen, buddy. I’m just so glad. That you found somebody who makes you happy. And I’m so proud of you. I’m so proud of the man you’ve become. I just want the very best for you. You deserve it. Thanks dad.

Now your daddy here tells me you’re doing really well in school, especially in science. I’m really good at spelling too. I won the class spelling bee last week. Holy mackerel, that is impressive. That’s Riley’s big sister. Can I go say hi? Yeah. Yeah, sure, just stay where I can see you. Okay. It’s just so good to see my granddaughter again.

I bet. Dad, it’s been, uh, I’m not gonna lie to you, it’s been rough the last couple months with Kristen having full custody. Yeah. But, she, um, she’s encouraging me to see more of Rachel. So, it’s, it’s good. I mean, she’s been surprisingly supportive of that. Hey. Hey. You know, I don’t mean to overstep here, but Son, have you asked yourself, what do you think that is?

Oh, my. Alright. So, we started here. On the bed and then, uh, moved to the shower. And then we went around and, uh, no. Two rounds in the claw foot tub. Uh huh. That was a bit challenging, but you know. Oh, I think we rose to the occasion. Oh, we definitely rose to the occasion. Oh, damn, Ari. I know it as much as I would love to go another round with you.

Rachel’s gonna be here any minute. Oh, right. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Hey, hey, what are you doing? This was the plan, remember? Oh, yeah, yeah. Yes, yes, yes. Rachel was gonna come in here, get her permission slip signed. Oh, yeah. And then she was gonna see us together. Yes. And then she was gonna tell Brady that you and I were cuddling.

Cuddling, huh? Yeah. Well, that’s what she’ll call it, I assume. And hopefully Brady will, uh, get the idea. I think Brady’s going to assume that we were having a passionate affair. Yeah? Oh, indeed. And he will be a salmon. Correctly, won’t he? Indeed. Huh, that’s weird. This bed’s made. And there are no piles of clothes on the floor from the night before.

Is it possible? You already left for work? Good morning to

you too. Get in there. Alex is going to work. Yes, he has. What do you want? I need your help, Theresa. You need my help? What happened? Did Nike figure out you’re not really such a catch and that you’re really after her money? She had me sign a prenup. Wow. Well, I guess you’re screwed. Can’t really steal Victor’s money from her now, huh?

Oh, I will get this fortune one way or the other. I did not come all this way or go through all this trouble only to, to lose what I came for.

Your parents must have been so excited when you told them you were coming home. They were. They’re both really excited. And my mom, she just, she can’t wait to meet Trip in person. I bet. There’s a big difference between video chatting with your kids and hugging them in real life. Huge difference. Yeah. Well, I want you to know that I am So happy that the two of you found each other.

I mean, he really is crazy about you. Oh, I feel the same way about him. And Tripp is a great guy. I’m very lucky. He’s lucky too. And I think this time away from Salem is going to be great for you too. And just know that you always, always have a home here.

So? Sexy. What do you think? Yeah? I think yeah. Yeah? Yeah. I don’t think it’s too small. Uh. a velvet smoking jacket or anything like that? No, Alex, I do not have a velvet smoking jacket. Good. And anyway, well, uh, so the idea that you and I slept together when Rachel sees you in Mommy’s robe. In Mommy’s robe?

Well, like I said. Uh. Uh. We said, I don’t think it’s gonna be a very tough sell. Mm hmm. Mm. It’s funny. I thought for a while that Brady was the only man I had eyes for. Yeah. Same. For me. And Teresa. Yeah? Mm hmm. Well, I know a plan to make our prospective partners jealous. Took a slight detour last night. And again, and again, and this morning.

Oh, this morning. Again, and again. And I’m telling you, I’m not complaining. No, neither am I. Good. Mmm. Mmm. I don’t know, Dad. Maybe, maybe Kristen is finally, you know, mellowing. Maybe she realizes that Rachel needs a father in her life. Well, for your sake, I hope that’s true. And as much as I hate to be a cynic here, I’m pretty sure that Her being open to You spending more time with Rachel is just another ploy to reel you back in.

Alright, Dad, you know, You’re probably right. Alright, you’re probably right, but She’s wasting her time because there’s no way I’m ever, I’m ever gonna get back together with that woman. She’s gonna have to give me up. Period. Very much in the same way that she had to give you up back then. No, no, no, no, no, no.

You never had a child together. Big difference between the two of you.

I know. Unfortunately, I am. I’m always gonna have Kristen in my life.

Forgive me, I’m just a little bit puzzled. Not about why Maggie would want the prenup, I mean, why the hell would she, but about how you didn’t foresee this happening. I did not come here to be mocked, Teresa, or judged. I need your help. My help? Yes! Okay, you know that if I so much as mention this to Maggie, she’s gonna suspect that you and I were in cahoots together.

Secondly, you’ve already signed the damn prenup! Then find another Another way. Yes. Okay, let me think. Uh, G, let’s see. Shall I just make the prenup, poof, disappear into thin air? Is that what you want me to do? Actually, it is.

Can you believe that Guangzhou has a population of over 19 million people? I mean, that’s more than New York and Los Angeles combined. Oh, I have a friend who lives there and loves it. Like, she did a study abroad there and just never left. You know, we should go visit her. Yeah. Oh. I’ll get it. Okay. Hey, Ava.

Hey. Well,

we weren’t expecting you. I, I invited her. Um, the reason I didn’t tell you guys is because, well, Mom, you weren’t sure you were going to come. You thought you were just going to say bye to us later. Yeah, I wasn’t sure. But then I decided that it was important for me to share this time with all of you. I hope that’s okay.

Well, come on in.

I’m glad you can make it, Mom. Yeah, I’m just so happy I can be here at my son’s farewell.

Okay. You know, I don’t get it. I don’t get it. I mean, Rachel was supposed to come in here and have her permission slip signed, and then Brady didn’t show up. I mean, what the hell is going on? Well, maybe Rachel overslept. No, no, no. She wouldn’t do that. She’s, um, too excited for her field trip this morning.

And, uh, even if she did oversleep, Brady would have called me. Yeah, but I mean, maybe Brady just I don’t know. Stop by, pick her up, sign the permission slip. No, he can’t do that as a non custodial parent. He just can’t do that. I’m gonna go find out what’s going on.

All right, just because Kristen and I share a child, look, we’ll always be connected that way. I get that, but that doesn’t mean that, excuse me. Kristen? Well, where are you? I’m at the pub. With my dad and with Rachel, we’re having breakfast. We’re about to go on the field trip. What? What? You already picked her up?

Obviously. Well, Brady, you need to get back here. What for? Well, because the permission slip, I never signed it. Rachel said that you did. Hey, honey, honey, um, Ami said that she never signed the permission slip. I know. I did. What? You, uh, you forged her signature? You’re not gonna tell my teacher, are you? We

do have a few errands to run at the square before we head to the airport. Are you sure we can’t drive you? Dad, no, no, no, no. We already put the rideshare. Oh, we are not letting you make that long drive. What? I would love to run your errands with you. I mean, if that is okay. Oh, of course.

I guess, uh, I guess this is goodbye. For now, anyway. I’m really gonna miss you,

buddy. I’m gonna miss you too, Dad. Wendy. You make sure he doesn’t get into too much trouble, okay? I’ll do my best. And please, you tell your parents that our hearts are with them for everything that they have been through. And they are so lucky that they have such a wonderful and caring daughter. I feel lucky to have such loving, caring parents.

And I know Tripp feels the same way about all of you guys. Which That’s why I also know what a huge sacrifice it is for him to come with me. No. No, it’s not a sacrifice. Okay, I want to be with you. I want to get to know your friends and family over there. Maybe feel closer to you. Plus, we’ll be back here a lot.

Right. Yeah. Well, you better be. Yeah. Tripp, I just, I just want you to know how much I love you. When everybody sings your praises at the hospital about what a wonderful doctor you are, I just want you to know I am so proud of you.

I am so proud to be related to the Chief of Staff. Who everyone pretty much worships there. That is not true. But, Very kind of you. Anyway,

You know, we’ll, We’ll chat a lot, you know, talk on the phone a lot. We’ll do all that, all of it. And hey, maybe we’ll take a trip to Hong Kong ourselves someday to visit you. Yeah, yeah, yeah, me too. Please, you must. You guys will always have a place in my parents home. Ah, thank you, Mindy. So, you ready? Yeah.

Thank you again for such a great breakfast. You’re welcome. Well, safe travels. Don’t leave me, Dad. Caleb. Oh, gosh, I love you so much. It’s gonna be great. It’s gonna be great.

Wendy. Take good care of them, huh? Please. Of course.

That boy has my heart. He reminds me so much of you. Oh, I really love that guy. I know you do, baby. So do I.

So, what happened? Oh, well, Rachel is with Brady. Oh. Yeah. The little rascal, she forged my signature on the permission slip. Oh, well, chip off the old block. Yeah, she is, I’m afraid so. Well, now that she’s with Brady having breakfast, they’ll be off to the field trip. Oh. Yeah. So, we missed our opportunity. For Rachel to see us cuddling and report it back to daddy.

Oh yeah, completely. We missed our opportunity. So does that mean all this cuddling was for nothing? Oh, I wouldn’t say that. I mean, just because our plan didn’t serve a purpose, it, uh, is it ever for nothing when you’ve had a fantastic, life farthing, exciting time? No, I suppose not. Oh, well, you know what?

Rachel’s not going to be here for a while. And you’re in no rush, are you? My morning happens to be wide open. Get over here!

Sweetie, you know that it’s wrong to forge a signature, right? We’re just going to learn to do that anyway. I practiced. You practiced? Okay, well, well, well, forging a signature is a crime. And if you don’t get caught? Wow, you’re sounding more like your mother all the time. Listen, you, Rachel, your mother’s done some things that landed her in prison.

So I know you don’t want that. I don’t want that for you either. So from now on, look at me. No more forging. No more doing things just because you think they’re okay. And you’re not going to get caught. Okay, no more. You hear me? Okay, Daddy. You don’t have to get mad though. I, I think I do have to get mad because otherwise you won’t know that it’s wrong.

Okay? So we need to understand now that’s settled. You know what? I gotta, I gotta get back to the office. Um, listen, squirt, I want you to listen to your daddy, okay? Because not only is he smart. But he also only wants what’s best for you. I know. I know you know. I love you, pumpkin. And I’ll see you real soon.

And I’ll see you soon, kid. Bye, Dad. Hey. Finish your breakfast. Okay, but first I have a question. What’s your question? Do you have a girlfriend?

I’m sorry, did I hear you right? You want me to break into the Kiriakis safe. What do you think I am, Catwoman? You are a natural. You will find a way. Find a way? Even still, did it occur to you that there’s probably a digital copy sitting on Maggie’s lawyer’s hard drive? Actually, there is not. I signed it the old fashioned way with a pen.

I saw her put the only executed copy in the safe. Well, even so, I’m not going to help you with this part of the plan. No way in hell. Then securing Victor’s fortune goes up in smoke, as does our entire plan. Which means you not only lose the money, but you lose Alex and Brady, not to mention the respect of your son.

I hope you understand what is at stake here for you, Teresa. And you would be well advised to never say no to me again.

Oh,

before we go, I’m gonna go get some of those luggage trackers. I don’t want our bags to somehow end up in like New Delhi and then we have no clue where they are. That’s a great idea, thanks. I’ll be right back. Um, Trep, honey, is there, is there anything that I can do for you before you go? No, I think I’m good.

Thanks, though, Mom. No. Oh, God, I’m gonna miss you. I’ll be back. I’m not falling off the face of the Earth. I know, but Ah, Tripp.

Even though you were taken away from me when you were a baby, God, ever since you were born, you’re such a big part of my heart. And you know, coming back from the brink of death and making amends, having you back in my life, It is been my greatest joy. I love you so much. I love you too, mom. And I know you know this, but maybe I haven’t said it enough.

I am so, so sorry for the harm that I caused you. I know it wasn’t easy for you to find out that you were the son of a mafia princess. You have left that world behind. I’m really proud of you for that. Yeah, well, I don’t deserve you being proud of me, but

God, as long as you love me, and you know that I love and respect you, it’s everything for me.

Oh, baby. You know, all I’ve ever wanted for you is for you to be happy. And to be at peace with yourself.

I’ll do more for you too. So please, while I’m gone, stay out of trouble. For me, okay? I will. For you. Oh God, I promise you. Girlfriend?

Why would you ask me that? Because mommy has a boyfriend. Yeah, I know. I know his name is Alex. How do you feel about that? I don’t know. He seems nice. Yeah. I think I know why you asked me what you asked me.

Honey, I know you want Mommy and I to be together. And I want you to know that even though we’re not right for each other, That has nothing to do with you, okay?

I’m serious. I’ve told you this before and I’m going to tell you this again, sweetie, that no matter what your mom and I are going through, even though we might not be together, we love you with all of our hearts. You are the most important thing to me. The most important thing, and you always will be, okay?

Oh.

Alex. Hi. Theresa, hi. Hey. What are you, um, Are you, you’re, Are you in the same clothes as yesterday? Um, yes. Yes, I am. And you didn’t come home last night. Right. I did not. Hmm. This plane hasn’t even taken off and I’m already missing my boy. I know. I feel the same way. But I do think that Tripp made the right decision for himself.

And that he and Wendy are going to have an exciting, wonderful time. I know they will. But baby, uh, with everything that’s been going on in my life lately, I think maybe Tripp would be better off not being around me. You know? No, I, I don’t. What are you talking about?

I’m talking about Constantine blaming me for taking the pawn to Arya. Blaming me for his daughter’s death. And I can’t shake the feeling that Jon bought into it. Stay. But I don’t blame him. I don’t blame him because if I hadn’t taken that job, With Victor, if I had been strong enough to say no, that young woman would be alive right now.

She isn’t.

Yeah, it’s open.

Constantine, what can I do for you?

So, do you have everything? Wallet, passports? I do, yeah. Do you? Uh, I do. Everything about you? And Wayne, in a grey sedan, is about two minutes away. I’ll marry you.

You ready to do this? Definitely. Before I’m with you. I’m ready for anything. I love you so much, Wendy. I love you too.

So, how many movies do you think we can watch before we land? Four? Five? Well, I was going to start with Naughty Hill, of course. And then I was thinking maybe Bridesmaids? Oh, have you seen Train to Busan? It’s Korean, it’s about a zombie apocalypse on a train. Okay, yeah, I’m down.

Shall we?

Where were you, Alex? Why do you care? We’re just roommates after all, right? Wait a second.

Okay, please do not tell me that you were with Kristen DiMera. Please do not tell me that. Okay, I don’t know why any of that would matter. It’s completely irrelevant who I was with, where I was, and why I was there. Because it’s none of your business. Oh my God. Oh my God, you were with her? Really? How could you do that?

How could you do that after everything that she’s done to me? After everything that two timing bitch has put me through? Okay, I’m not gonna get into this with you, Teresa. After all, this is on you. How the hell is this on me? Because you’re the one who said you wanted to keep it strictly platonic between us, and you got it.

So, my love life is my business, and my business alone. Fine, yes, I did. I did say that. And so technically, I shouldn’t feel angry or jealous, but I do, I do feel all those things. Theresa.

Look, I, uh, I have to shower and run to the office. I have a huge meeting with London in the morning. Maybe we can pick up on this a little bit after. Yeah?

Alex, it’s me. I’m, um, just lying here in my bed, thinking about you and your gorgeous body. And, uh, how you sort of just take control. Well, anyway, I had a marvelous time. And I think that you and I are on the same page. Our plan didn’t go as we hoped, but I think it went a whole lot better.

I’d like to see you again, Alex. Again, and again. And again.

Let’s go. Dad? Yeah? I’m really happy you’re coming on this field trip with me. You know what? I’m happy to do anything with you. Anytime. Anytime. Let’s go see some fish. You’re obviously very upset by this. I think you need to call John. You need to have a conversation and let him know your take on this. On the, on the accusation from Constantine that you’re responsible for the loss of his daughter, which I know is not true.

And I think in your heart of hearts, you know it’s not true. Why don’t you just give him a call and clear the air?

I guess I can do that

Given john enough space I could Call him and let him know how I feel about all this

I am looking for steve. Is he around? No. He took the morning off to spend a little time with his family. I don’t know. Then, uh, I shall be on my way. That sounds good.

Don’t let Steve know.

There you are, my pawn. Now listen very closely to every word I say. Because I have an extremely important mission for you.

[ Dramatic music ]

Deacon: We gotta get over there right now.

Finn: Look, we don’t know what’s in that building.

Deacon: Sheila! Sheila could be over there.

Finn: You’re sure you saw that woman go into the building?

Tom: Oh, absolutely. I never forget a face.

Deacon: You heard screaming coming from over there?

Tom: Until it stopped. Hear a lot of weird things around here.

Finn: Do you know what’s in that building?

Tom: Beats me. It’s been vacant since before I was here. I was told to stay away from that building. It’d be wise to do the same.

[ Gunshots ]

[ Tires screeching ] Well, good luck, fellas. You’re gonna need it.

[ Police siren wailing ]

Deacon: We doing this?

Finn: We don’t have a choice. There’s a chance that sheila’s in that building, we need to go.

Deacon: Yeah. Let’s go.

Ridge: Well, I gotta tell you, I’m impressed with hope and her team. They didn’t miss a beat with thomas taking a little time off.

Brooke: Hopefully, it stays that way.

Ridge: Zende, rj, they’re doing a great job. What a great team they are. And, um, I don’t know. Maybe that is the future of forrester. What do you think, steffy? Hey. Hi.

Steffy: Oh, hi. Yes, um…

Ridge: Where’d you go?

Steffy: I– I was thinking about finn. I mean, he was… he was pretty quiet last night and this morning. We didn’t have time to get into it, I, uh… I just hope he’s okay.

Liam: Deacon is usually here for the lunch rush.

Bill: Were you hoping to get our meals comped by your ex-lowlife-in-law?

Liam: Maybe if I were alone.

Bill: Meaning not with me.

Liam: Yeah. Yeah, the guy who tried to lure sheila to prison?

Bill: Prison was way too good for that animal. Not to mention a waste of taxpayer money keeping her locked up. Definitely better off dead.

Liam: Well, on the bright side, we get to come here as often as we want without running into her.

Bill: Mm. I’ll drink to that.

[ Bill chuckles ]

Liam: Did you get a chance to look over that contract I sent you?

Bill: Yeah. How’d you come to agree to those terms?

Liam: Oh, well, it’s this new trick I’ve been trying. I call it honesty and plain dealing.

[ Bill pretends to vomit ] The truth is, they were already psyched about the multimedia strategy. All I had to do was convince them it ain’t gonna come cheap.

Bill: Great job.

Liam: Well, thank you. I guess I’M… I don’t know. My priorities are narrowing. I’m just focused on my kids and my career right now.

Bill: Glad to hear it.

Liam: Yeah. So are steffy and hope. Waffling back and forth between the two of them all those years, it wasn’t good for them, but it also wasn’t good for me. And I… I don’t want to do that anymore.

Bill: I’ll drink to that, too.

Ridge: So, you are worried about finn.

Steffy: Just a weird feeling.

Brooke: Because he’s been quiet?

Steffy: Like there’s something on his mind.

Ridge: I know. We all have that, right? Is it… did you ask him about it?

Steffy: I just figured it was, you know, work or a patient, but I can’t stop thinking about it. I always know when something’s off with finn, even when I have no idea what it is.

[ Deacon coughs ]

Finn: Tried looking up the address in here, but no reception. I don’t know–

Deacon: Sheila!

Finn: What this place is.

Deacon: Sheila! I’m gonna open this.

[ Deacon grunts ] Sheila!

Finn: She’s not here.

Deacon: We’re going to search everything inch of this place.

Finn: Let’s go.

Deacon: Sheila!

Finn: Sheila?

Deacon: Sheila! (Angie) tobacco companies

Bill: Listen, I am all for your newfound focus on work and family.

Liam: Yeah, you are. And it’s good for spencer’s bottom line, if nothing else.

Bill: Well, it is good for you personally as well, liam. And that’s just as important.

Liam: Yeah, but not just me. It’s good for hope, too. She’s doing the same thing in her own life.

Bill: Yeah. Interesting coincidence, isn’t it?

Liam: Yeah, interesting, maybe. Surprising, no. I mean, not if you look at the state our lives were in when our marriage ended. We’re both just spinning our wheels, right? We’re both looking for a new– a new purpose, identity.

Bill: So, do you think this, um, newfound shared perspective could mean you guys getting back together?

Liam: I don’t– we’re just not thinking about that right now.

Bill: Look, um, I– I know that you want to stop this waffling back and forth–

Liam: Yeah.

Bill: Between hope and steffy and I totally get that, but, um, given that you you seem to be sharing the same mindset with hope, don’t you think that down the road, it could mean something else?

Liam: Okay, look, listen, I– you know, at this stage in my life, I know better than to say never. But right now, right now, my priority is just being the best father I can be. That means I’m prioritizing beth and kelly.

Bill: Followed closely by spencer publications.

Liam: Look at this face. Is this not a dedicated face? I’m dedicated.

[ Bill laughs ]

Bill: You are dedicated. And I think it’s just amazing. I mean, it shows a lot of maturity and self awareness on your part.

Liam: Thanks, dad.

Bill: You clearly are following the example set by your old man.

[ Liam laughs ]

Liam: I will be serious for a moment and say that it means a lot to me that you’ve always had my back.

Bill: Yeah, well, I always will. Now, listen. You know, you can beat yourself up about this waffling thing, but it’s not how I see it. I can’t hate on you for falling in love with two incredible women. Let me remind you that they loved you right back. And for good reason.

Steffy: I don’t want to make this more than it is.

Ridge: You’re not. Look, if something seems off with finn, then…

Brooke: But he would tell you if something was wrong.

Steffy: Yeah. I don’t want to read too much into it, actually. No, we’ve been, uh, we’ve been good. We’ve been talking and sharing our feelings. It’s just last night and this morning, he seemed… quiet. Sitting on the couch, staring at– at nothing. It’s– it’s probably nothing. Like I said, it– it really is– I’m sure it’s– it’s work. What do you think?

Ridge: I’m– I’m sure that’s what it is.

Steffy: It’s just the last time I had this feeling… it had something to do with sheila.

Finn: Sheila?

Deacon: Sheila?

Finn: Smells awful in here.

Deacon: Yeah, it does. It’s like something died. Sheila!

Finn: Sheila! You heard what that guy said, the building’s been empty for a long time. No idea what’s in here.

Deacon: Sheila, it’s deacon! Where are you? Can you hear me?

Finn: Sheila! Hey, whoa, what’s that over there?

[ Mouse squeaking ]

Deacon: Place is probably crawling with rats. I hate rats. Can you hold this for me? Thank you.

[ Deacon grunts ]

Finn: Sheila! Sheila, where are you?

Bill: All right, I want you to listen to your dad. Having two families is a blessing, not something to feel guilty about. You call it waffling, but that’s not how I see it.

Liam: Yeah, but you’re a little biased.

Bill: No, what I see is a man who has never shirked his responsibilities. You’ve always stood up and been there for the people that you love. It– it wasn’t indecision, liam. You just couldn’t be everywhere you wanted to be all at once.

Liam: Ah… I really appreciate that that’s your perspective, but the fact is, it wasn’t fair to hope or steffy and I respect them too much to keep doing this, to keep… choosing between them and then changing my mind. I’ll give you this. Not a day goes by I’m not grateful for the families I’ve created with them. So, I must have done something right.

Steffy: I hate even having to say her name. I wish we could just forget about sheila.

Ridge: Wish granted. Let’s forget about her. I’ve forgotten about her. We’ve forgotten about her. It’s done.

Brooke: What about finn? Has he forgotten about her? I mean, you said he’s been quiet.

Steffy: It’s– it’s probably nothing,

Brooke: But your gut says otherwise.

Steffy: There’s no way this could be about sheila.

Ridge: No, it can’T. You know why? Because sheila is dead. She’s gone. Out of our lives forever.

[ Creaking ]

Deacon: What the hell was that? Sheila, can you hear us?

Finn: Sheila!

Deacon: Look, if this is the place, she’s been here for weeks. What kind of shape is she in?

Finn: Look, we can’t give up.

[ Deacon sighs ]

Deacon: I’m not giving up, I’m just being realistic.

Finn: Sheila! You hear us?

Deacon: Sheila! There’s a door.

[ Door lock clicking ]

[ Deacon sighs ] It’s locked. Um, would you stand over there for a second?

[ Deacon grunting ]

Finn: Whoa, you see that?

Deacon: What?

Finn: There’s something down there. Look. Give damaged hair deep repair.

Bill: I applaud your good intentions, and I support them. But liam, being mister happy single guy might be tougher than you think.

Liam: It’s not that tough. What, I don’t look happy to you? I could be happy.

Bill: No, you look great. You look great. But every time we get together, inevitably, the conversation turns to hope and steffy. I mean, you have to have noticed that, right?

Liam: Oh, uh–

Bill: And, look, I’m not hating on you. I’m not giving you a hard time.

Liam: No, no, but you’re right. You’re right, and it’s just… it’s just– it’s ’cause I want to change, right? I want to do better. I want to start treating both hope and steffy with the respect they deserve.

Bill: Well, you do that by appreciating both of them for who they are, right? I mean, you’re talking about two accomplished, intelligent, beautiful women. Great mothers.

Liam: Yeah.

Bill: And hope is just a very kind and forgiving person.

Liam: Yeah. Steffy is, too.

Bill: Yeah, she is. She is. And, well, steffy brought something different to your life.

Liam: Oh, no. Yeah, no doubt. I mean, a sense of excitement and adventure. I mean, every– every day was a new experience with steffy. I’m– listen, I’m grateful to have spent even a portion of my life with steffy. And further, I’m grateful I get to stay in her life now, just as co parents for kelly. Right? But… steffy’s totally committed to finn. And now with sheila gone, nothing’s gonna tear those two apart.

Ridge: There’s no question what happened that night. Sheila’s dead. She’s gone. And I know that still plays with your emotions a lot.

Steffy: Yeah, it’s a hard memory to shake.

Ridge: I believe that.

Steffy: I’m just glad she’s gone. God, I was so jumpy that night.

[ Gushing wind ] It was because of the storm. And then I heard a noise, and I…

[ Door creaking ] I went to check it out, and that’s when the power went out. Went to go look for some candles… and I saw the shadow. Oh, god. My heart stopped. It was her. And I told her to get out. And then she reached in her pocket, and… I thought she had a gun. I thought she was gonna shoot me again. So, I went to grab the knife. And she lunged at me, and that’s when it was over. I remember looking down and just seeing… seeing her there. And– and the blood. Realizing I… I killed her. Sheila carter was dead.

Ridge: Come here.

Steffy: Oh, god.

Finn: Sheila! Sheila!

Deacon: Hey, listen. Let’s split up. I’m gonna go that way, you go that way, all right?

Finn: Okay.

[ Heart beating ]

Sheila: I love you so much, finn.

Steffy: Sheila’s a monster.

Sheila: I love you so much, finn. I’m your first home, your first everything.

Steffy: She shot us. Sheila’s a monster, finn.

[ Heart beating faster ]

Finn: Deacon, hurry up! Get in here! Deacon!

Deacon: What do you got?

[ Deacon grunts ]

Finn: My god…

Deacon: Sheila!

Finn: Mom… mom!

Adam: Hey.

Chelsea: I just got a call from the doctor. Connor wants to talk to us.

Adam: Yeah, I, uh, I got the same message.

Chelsea: Yeah, this is a big step.

Adam: Yeah, considering a week ago he didn’t wanna have any communication with us at all.

Chelsea: Right, um, but we can’t make this bigger than it is.

Adam: I’m not.

Chelsea: Right, well, you tend to do that. Sometimes, adam, you know, you project things the way you want them to be without realizing this is a process. You know, this is just the beginning. We have to tread carefully so connor doesn’t tune us out.

Adam: And are we now talking about me or are we talking about you?

Chelsea: Both. We can’t screw this up. There’s too much at stake.

Nikki: Oh, jack! I’m so happy that harrison is home. Is he okay?

Jack: Doctors checked him out. Physically, he’s fine. Time will tell about everything else.

Nikki: Poor little baby.

Jack: He keeps calling jordan “the mean lady” and “the witch.” Not that we’re encouraging him to talk about it.

Nikki: Oh! It’s lucky we got him back when we did.

Jack: How are you doing? Any news on claire?

Nikki: Uh, no, but victoria got a call last night that she thought could’ve been claire.

Jack: Maybe they found her?

Nikki: Unfortunately, no.

Jack: Oh, this is agony. I am so sorry.

Nikki: Yeah, so am I. For ever thinking that claire had anything to do with this.

Michael: So that was the one word you could make out?

Cole: “Mom.”

Michael: And you’re sure the call was from claire?

[ Victoria sighs ]

Victoria: It was muffled, but it had to be her.

Michael: And no chance this was something arranged by jordan before her demise?

Victoria: Michael, it was claire.

Victor: It wasn’t from a landline. And they’re checking all the cell towers right now. It’s gonna take some time.

Victoria: Well, that’s time that we don’t have, dad. What if claire’s hurt and that’s why she didn’t call us back?

Victor: Sweetheart–

Victoria: We have to find her. We have to do something.

(“Holiday road”)

Announcer: Additional

Adam: You’re right. And it’s good that you’re reminding both of us that we need to move slowly. But I–

[ Chelsea groans ]

Chelsea: I hate when you say “but.” It makes me very nervous.

Adam: I was just gonna say, chelsea, that I could use any good news right now.

Chelsea: Of course. So could I. What are you doing?

Adam: I’m setting up the video call.

Chelsea: Adam, can you just wait one second? I think that we should go over the guidelines the doctor suggested. Things to avoid talking about. Words that could be triggering for connor.

Adam: Okay. Gotta have the rules.

Chelsea: There are these things called reassurances we’re supposed to avoid, which seems really weird because as a parent, all you wanna do is reassure your child. But the doctor says that they will only feed and validate his fears, so we have to avoid that.

Adam: Mm-hmm. Okay. I got it. No reassuring. Mm-hmm.

Chelsea: I’m sorry. Am I boring you, adam?

Adam: No. You’re just telling me things that I already know.

Chelsea: Okay. Then I’ll repeat them to myself. Because I’m crawling out of my skin, and I would appreciate it if you didn’t get offended by every damn thing I say.

Adam: I’m sorry. Okay? You’re right.

Chelsea: We are both nervous. We both have a lot at stake, okay? But I have to know that we’re gonna be a team. Adam, we have to be.

Adam: We are a team. And just so you know, I’m not taking offense. It’s just– it’s my way, you know?

Chelsea: Yeah. Your defense mechanism is anger. Mine is, um, quiet panic and anxiety. None of which are any good for our son.

Adam: And I hear you, chelsea. This– it’s all about connor. Okay? We have the rules, and we can do this. You ready?

Chelsea: Let’s, uh– let’s make the call.

Cole: Well, there could be a whole other explanation for claire not calling back. Maybe the phone died. It’s possible, isn’t it?

Victoria: But cole, she sounded panicked and desperate.

Michael: Do you think claire knows about jordan?

Victor: I doubt it. We kept the press out of it.

Michael: Then she could be unaware that harrison’s been rescued?

Cole: What are you getting at?

Michael: I’m fond of claire. You know that. I’ve defended her in the past. But this is a girl who’s spent her entire life doing jordan’s bidding.

Victoria: Are you saying that she still is?

Michael: No, I didn’t say that.

Victoria: Well, it certainly sounds like you’re implying that, michael.

Michael: I’m merely laying out possibilities. If claire still believes jordan has harrison, then that phone call last night could’ve been a smokescreen, could’ve been part of a plan.

Cole: To what end?

Michael: To divide us, to distract us.

Victoria: Didn’t you hear what harrison said about jordan hurting claire?

Michael: Again, that could’ve been jordan and claire putting on an act for an impressionable little boy.

Cole: Wait a minute. Are you serious right now? Because this whole train of thought is a distraction. It’s a complete waste of our time.

Michael: I’m simply trying to manage expectations.

Cole: We don’t need you to manage anything, okay? Our daughter is missing. She could be in terrible danger. And the only thing I wanna hear from anyone right now is how do we get her back?

Michael: All right. I’m sorry. Sometimes my lawyerly skill at arguing both ends of an issue are– well, it’s inappropriate. Please forgive me.

Victor: Let’s calm down. All we know is that claire’s alive. That is more than we knew before.

Victoria: But where? Where, dad? The one person who might be able to tell us is dead.

Jack: Yeah, I’m sorry I doubted claire, too, but given her background and who she was raised with, I had trouble believing she could turn everything around so quickly.

Nikki: Yeah, it was hard for all of us, except for victoria. She just always knew.

Jack: Mothers and daughters.

Nikki: Yeah, I’m sure victoria wishes her mother could be more helpful.

Jack: Wait, why do you say things like that?

Nikki: I don’t know. I just feel particularly useless.

Jack: I guarantee you, victoria does not see you that way.

Nikki: No. She sees me as a fragile flower that needs to be watched all the time. She knows I’ve been drinking again. I denied it, of course, but she knows. I just hate that I am so damn weak. I’m so damn weak!

Jack: You are one of the strongest people I have ever known.

Nikki: I certainly don’t feel that way right now.

Jack: Because you’ve just been put through hell, nikki. You have endured things that would bring most people to their knees, and you are still standing. And piling more blame and stress on yourself is not the answer.

Nikki: The stress I can handle. It’s the guilt that’s overwhelming.

Jack: The guilt? What guilt?

Nikki: Jordan. All of this.

Jack: Why would any part of you blame yourself for what jordan did?

Nikki: Because none of it should have happened, jack. Claire and harrison would not have been kidnapped if it weren’t for me.

Summer: What do you mean, grandma? What did you do? When my doctor gave me breztri for my copd Harry & david makes mother’s day easy. Share a gift, made with love, with the mom in your life. Choose from hundreds of stunning baskets and towers. It’s the perfect way to say thank you – for everything. Harry & david. Life is a gift. Share more. At tj maxx, you can afford to turn your closet

Chelsea: Hi! Connor, it’s so good to see your face.

Adam: Hey, buddy. How’s it going?

Connor: It’s going okay, I guess.

Adam: What have you been up to? I mean, have you made any friends? Is the, uh– the therapy working out?

Connor: Maybe. I don’t know.

Adam: Well, you must know if you’re feeling better, right? I mean, why don’t you tell us about the doctor? Do you feel he’s someone that you can talk to?

Chelsea: Hey, you know what? Your dad is anxious to know all these things because he loves you and misses you so much. We both do. That’s why we have all these questions. But you just take your time. Whenever you’re ready to tell us, we’re here to listen.

Jack: Your grandmother feels horrible about what has happened to harrison, but she is in no way responsible for the actions of a psychopath.

Nikki: Thank you for trying to protect me, jack. But there’s more to it than that. None of this would have happened if I had made different choices.

Summer: What do you mean? What choices?

Nikki: When jordan took that poison in front of us, claire asked if we should even bother saving her life.

Summer: Claire was willing to let her aunt die?

Nikki: Oh, yes. I mean, she has known her aunt her whole life. She knows how evil she is and all the things that jordan did to her and to many other people. Claire didn’t think that anyone else should have to suffer like that.

Summer: I– I guess I’m surprised to hear that.

Nikki: Because you thought that claire was involved in harrison’s kidnapping. That crossed my mind as well. But I now know that claire was once again jordan’s victim. And I set it all into motion by calling 911 and let her live.

Summer: Grandma, I– I don’t understand. After everything that jordan did to you, did to our family, why– why would her life mean anything to you?

Nikki: Trust me, I’ve asked myself that so many times. And in the end, I simply couldn’t let her die in front of us. And letting her go out on her own terms seemed like letting her win. I wanted her to face her punishment. I– I didn’t know that she was going to escape again and then bring more chaos to our family. But if you’re looking for someone to blame, blame me. I’m sorry, summer. You have every reason to hate me for this.

Victor: Look, you all, jordan is exactly where she should be. We’ll find claire and she will be where she should be. But we won’t give up.

Victoria: I’m not giving up. I’m just tired of sitting around here doing nothing, waiting for the phone to ring.

[ Victoria sighs ] Look, cole and I were talking on the way up here, and we want to go to the motel where jordan held harrison.

Victor: But sweetheart, the cops have combed through that hotel. Up and down. They found nothing that leads to claire.

Victoria: Dad, maybe they didn’t know what to look for. They don’t know claire. We do.

[ Victor exhales ]

Victor: All right. You two go down there, do what you have to do, and, uh, I’ll see to it that no one interferes with you.

Cole: Thank you, victor.

Victoria: Thank you.

Michael: You’ll run that by me again, victor?

Victor: Run what by you again?

Michael: How exactly did jordan die? My mental health was better.

Chelsea: Why don’t you tell us how you’re adjusting to the new place?

Connor: Well, the main doctor’s pretty cool. She gets it, you know?

Chelsea: Gets what, honey?

Connor: My moods, stuff like that. Things she calls disassociations.

Adam: Whoa, that’s a– that’s a mouthful.

Connor: Like, sometimes I don’t remember things, and I get all mad at myself and frustrated. But the doctor says that’s just my brain going, “nope, not going there.”

Chelsea: So it’s– it’s kind of like you get overwhelmed?

Connor: Yeah, but more. The doc says that some people with ocd have that, so they’re teaching me to slow down and recognize when it happens and not to get so impatient with myself.

Adam: Mmm.

Chelsea: Yeah, but, you know, that– that happens to me too sometimes. It’s like my mind races ahead, and I suddenly forget where I’m even going.

Connor: Really?

Chelsea: Yeah. Oh, yeah. So I just have to slow down and regroup. I– I think it’s called, um, staying in the moment.

Connor: And just dealing with it no matter how hard it is.

Chelsea: Exactly.

Adam: I mean, I– I don’t know, I– I– I get that, yes, but does everything have to be a struggle? I mean, isn’t it okay to sometimes, you know, check out when the world is coming at you at 100 miles an hour?

Connor: No, dad, you can’T.

Adam: Okay, well, I just meant that–

Connor: The doctors told me that it’s called reassuring. It’s like saying the ocd part of my brain is doing all the right things. Like it’s normal. But it’s not. It just makes the ocd dig in harder.

Adam: You see, there I go again. Connor, there– there’s just– a lot of this stuff you’re gonna have to explain to me, because, um, your hard-headed old man already thinks he knows everything. So whenever I open my big mouth, just go like this, okay?

Connor: I can do that.

Jack: I’m sure summer doesn’t blame you for what happened. She holds one person responsible. Jordan.

Nikki: Is that right, summer?

Jack: You– you know what? I think you and I should get out of here and get to a meeting.

Nikki: Uh, I wish I could, but I have another appointment.

Jack: More important than a meeting?

Nikki: I’m meeting with lauren. We have a lot of newman media work to do.

Jack: Your family has been through hell, nikki. Claire is still missing. Work can wait. Come on.

Nikki: But– but it helps me to not think about everything, and I desperately need that, even if it’s just for an hour. I– I will go to a meeting afterwards. I promise.

Jack: Okay. Okay.

Nikki: It’s okay to blame me, honey. I blame myself.

Summer: No. Jack’s right. Jordan is the only person responsible.

Nikki: Thank you for that. Please give harrison a hug from me. I’m– I’m so grateful that he’s home.

Summer: I will.

Jack: I’ll walk you out.

Summer: I’ll see myself out.

[ Door clicks open ]

Victoria: You know, I’m trying, but I just cannot wrap my brain around this. How someone could terrorize a child.

Cole: This is the same woman who raised ours.

Victoria: That makes me sick just thinking about it. What is it?

Cole: Nothing.

Victoria: You can tell me. It’s okay.

Cole: Remember back at the house? When you brought up losing baby eve? Claire? All those years ago. It just took me right back there. And I remember being sad, heartbroken, just like you. We never had the chance to be with her. We never knew her. It was almost like she wasn’t real. But she’s very real. And I would literally walk the length of the earth to bring her back. I would– I would exchange my life for hers in a heartbeat. And never, ever, have I had that feeling… about anyone.

Victoria: It’s called being a parent.

Cole: Yeah. I know that now.

Victoria: Sometimes it, you know, can feel like it’s a bit too much.

Cole: Claire is the greatest gift that I’ve ever received in my life. And when we find her, I’m gonna bring her home. I’m gonna hold her tight. And I’m gonna tell her that nobody’s ever gonna hurt her again. That her father will always be there to protect her.

[ Cole sighs ] For people who feel limited

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Connor: I’m playing

soccer again.

Chelsea: Oh.

Adam: Yeah? That’s great.

Connor: I’m pretty bad at it

’cause I haven’t played

in a while, but my friend mike

likes to run drills,

so I figured, “why not?”

Chelsea: Yeah, you– you made a new friend?

Connor: Yeah.

Mike’s pretty cool.

Adam: And is his– his treatment like yours?

Connor: Privacy, dad.

Adam: Yes, of course. Uh, well, thank you for the heads up.

Chelsea: Yeah, it sounds like you’re in the right place.

Connor: It’s all right here.

I just want to get better

soon and come home.

Adam: And we want that too. You know, we miss you, and we love you so much.

Chelsea: So, so much.

Adam: And we promise that we will take our cues from you, and from the doctors.

Chelsea: Yeah, we will listen.

Connor: I love you guys too.

Anyway, I better get going.

Chelsea: So soon?

Connor: Yeah, I’ve got class

in a few minutes.

Chelsea: Oh, okay, well, we understand.

Adam: All right, well, um, this was great, you know? Thank you.

Chelsea: We’ll talk to you soon, okay?

[ Chelsea sighs ] Okay, well, I have to email the doctor about these reassurances because I don’t really get it. So, if we tell connor that things are going to get better, that’s not a good thing, that’s going to stress him out even more? I just don’t really understand. Don’t, adam.

Adam: Don’t what?

Chelsea: Go wherever it is you’re going right now. It’s not going to help.

[ Chelsea sighs ]

Adam: Is this what his life is going to be like? Worrying about things like– like reassurances and disassociations? I mean, he shouldn’t even have a word for that.

Chelsea: If it helps him understand what he’s dealing with, I don’t care what they call it.

Adam: God, just taking the same brutal hits over and over.

Chelsea: Until he gets better. I mean, that’s what the whole exposure and response prevention thing is all about.

Adam: Yes, but the disassociations–

Chelsea: What, adam?

Adam: I went through it, chelsea. When I was a kid, I blocked things out, too. I erased the memory of seeing a man die right in front of me because I thought that I was responsible for it. And now my son is going through his own version of the same damn thing. So, is my life all he has to look forward to? I mean, is he going to grow up angry? Is he going to struggle to fit in? Is he ever going to believe that he deserves to be loved?

Chelsea: Adam, stop. This is an illness we don’t understand. And it’s just the beginning. We are going to be hearing things about it that are difficult for us to hear, that make us afraid. But we– we have to be ready for it. We have to stay calm and– and be strong and be unified.

Adam: Okay, well, that is a very nice speech, chelsea. But you are forgetting one very important thing. We are connor’s parents. He shares our dna, so everything that we are or have been is passed down to him. And that scares the hell out of me. And I am sorry, but you can’t convince me that you’re not being eaten up by it too.

Victor: I told you already. As I and my security team approached the motel, that jordan woman saw us coming. She panicked, she ran away, tried to cross the gamewood bridge, she slipped and fell into the river.

Michael: But no body was discovered.

Victor: Well, they are still searching. What are you getting at?

Michael: You know, well, as your attorney, I just want to make sure there is nothing that could come back to negatively impact my favorite client.

Victor: I told you exactly how it happened. It was a fortunate accident. Why can’t you just let it go?

Michael: I’d like to. I– I really would. But knowing you and working with you for all these years, I’ve developed a pretty good sense of who you are and how you operate, and right now, my senses are screaming that there’s a lot of this story you haven’t told me.

Cole: I haven’t seen

one of those in a while.

Victoria: Oh, my god.

Cole: Sweet, huh? You know, my mother had one just like this. She collected them.

Victoria: Uh, I think it’s hideous, actually.

Cole: Well, that’s the whole point. The creepier, the better.

Victoria: Wait a minute. Mom mentioned jordan tormenting her with a doll at the lake house. Um, do you think it could be like this one?

Cole: Hang on a sec. What is this? There’s something– there’s something inside here. Oooh! I can’t wait for this family getaway!

Cole: [Indistinct]

Victoria: Yeah, thank god.

[Indistinct] What could these possibly be for?

Cole: Well, they have to be just something important. Otherwise, jordan wouldn’t have taken the trouble to hide them like that.

Victoria: Maybe they could lead us to claire.

Cole: Yes, yes.

Victoria: But we still don’t know where she is, cole.

Cole: We have to keep looking, I mean, the answers have to be here somewhere, I know it.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Lauren: You must be exhausted.

[ Nikki sighs ]

Nikki: I am, it’s been a brutal last few days.

Lauren: I’m so sorry, nikki.

[ Nikki sighs ]

Nikki: We get through one nightmare and then there’s another one around the corner. I feel like I’m going to wake up and everything will be normal, you know, and claire will be safe.

Lauren: I wish that for you. You deserve it. And in the meantime, honey, you need to rest.

Nikki: If it were only that easy.

Lauren: I know it’s difficult. But I’m really worried about you, my friend.

Nikki: Thank you. And you’re right. I desperately need some sleep.

Lauren: All right, well, you know, forget about our meeting. Just turn around, go home, and get some sleep. I’ll text victor, and tell him you’re on the way.

Nikki: Oh, no, don’t do that. He’s putting all of his energy into finding claire. I don’t want to distract him.

Lauren: Okay. All right.

Nikki: Well, thank you for meeting me.

Lauren: You promise you’re going to go straight home, right?

Nikki: Where else would I go?

Victor: Michael, on my honor and our friendship, I am in no way responsible for that jordan woman’s death. Okay?

Michael: Now, that actually sounded sincere. Thank you.

Victor: Then let it be. All right? We now need to focus on finding my granddaughter.

Michael: Well, we’ve already got the whole town looking for her, and nothing’s turned up, she could be anywhere.

Victor: That means we need to double our efforts. I’ve got to be honest with you. The thought has occurred to me… that time may be running out for claire.

Chelsea: Of course this is upsetting to me. It’s agony, watching connor suffer the way he has, but I can’t give in to it. He needs me too much.

Adam: Then it will consume you.

Chelsea: Only if I let it.

Adam: Listen to me, chelsea.

Chelsea: And I’m not going to let it.

Adam: Why won’t you just talk to me?

Chelsea: I am talking to you.

Adam: Yes, with a bunch of buzzwords and to-do lists. Nothing about what’s really inside. Nothing about how you feel. Who would understand about any of that except me? This is our son. If we can’t talk to each other–

Chelsea: I’m terrified, adam. I’m terrified. But I’m afraid if I fall into that well of– of shame and guilt, I won’t be able to crawl out. I want to kill this thing that’s hurting our son. I want to destroy it. And of course I blame myself. I blame myself for my– for my weakness and my illness. And I– and I hate myself. And I’m not strong enough to stop this.

Adam: Yeah, well, I– I was not there for a big part of connor’s life. And when I was there, I created chaos. Do you know what I was thinking when he said he would just forget big chunks of time? I was thinking, yeah, I know, because that was me too.

[ Chelsea sniffles ]

Chelsea: I don’t know. Of course, I’ve had dark, intrusive thoughts. And there were moments that I hated myself. But it’s not about what you’ve been through or what I’ve been through. Connor is dealing with something different. And even though we can’t fully understand it, we still feel fully responsible.

Adam: Well, we’re not even sure if we’re what made it happen.

Chelsea: Adam… even if we didn’t cause it, does that even matter? Our son is still suffering.

Adam: I just wanna tell him that everything’s gonna be okay. I want to tell him that he’s gonna have a perfect, you know, average, utterly boring, normal life. But us telling him that everything’s gonna be okay is just us giving him our wishful thinking.

Chelsea: Yeah, I don’t think he wants to hear that from us.

[ Chelsea sighs ]

Adam: Yeah, well, I wouldn’t mind being reassured every once in a while.

Chelsea: Yeah. [Sighs] Yeah, neither would I.

[ Chuckles wryly ]

Adam: Well, maybe when things get tense or complicated or just plain scary, we could reassure each other.

Chelsea: I’d like that very much. Struggling with the highs and lows of bipolar 1?

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] So, how did you know?

Adam: Know what?

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] That I needed to… unload.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Oh. Well, I guess because I’ve been needing to do the same thing. You know, he’s such an incredible kid. I just wish that all this–

Chelsea: I know. And I’m glad that we can be there for each other, talk to each other in a way that’s, you know, different than before.

Adam: It’s a better way.

Chelsea: Like as grown-ups?

Adam: Well, I was going to say friends.

Chelsea: That, too. You know this is just the beginning, right? Connor’s going to have his ups and downs, and so are we.

Adam: Hmm. I’m not going anywhere.

Chelsea: Good. Neither am I.

[ Chelsea sniffling ]

Jack: Hey. How’s harrison doing?

Summer: Um, he’s still a little bit more clingy than usual, but that’s to be expected. I– I told him that we could do all of his favorite things today, and that made him smile.

Jack: That’s a start.

Summer: Yeah.

Jack: Listen, now that your grandmother is gone, how do you really feel about her letting jordan live?

Summer: My son… has bolted awake from nightmares twice since he’s been home. Jack, he might be scarred for life. What am I supposed to say when my grandma tells me that this could have all been avoided? I wish she had let jordan die. And if that makes me a terrible person, I don’t care. It’s the truth.

Jack: I’m not here to argue with you. But I have a favor to ask. Could you please not tell nikki that? Look, she’s in a very fragile state right now, and I’m worried knowing that might take her over the edge. Could you do that for me?

Summer: I don’t– I don’t plan on saying anything. I will always love my grandma. And I will always wish that she had let jordan die when she had the chance.

Nikki: [ Exhales deeply ]

Cole: Vic, can you think of any other place where jordan might have stayed?

Victoria: No.

Cole: Well, there– there has to be something here that’s gonna help us out. I mean, there has to be a map, an address, there’s something.

Victoria: Wait a minute.

Cole: What?

Victoria: I– you know, I’ve been racking my brain for the last five minutes trying to figure out if I’m imagining this or if it’s real. And it’s real, cole. I’m sure of it.

Cole: What’s real? What are you talking about?

Victoria: The keys! I recognize them. I’ve seen them before. I think I know where we have to go.
