[ Knock on door ]
Phyllis: Hey! Hi. Isn’t this gorgeous?
Jack: I could not agree more. Milan was wonderful in its own way, you know, the shops, the fashions, the restaurants, the art and culture. But, wow, everywhere you look in this place, it is gorgeous. The newmans have outdone themselves.
Phyllis: Yeah. Well, the palazzo’s beautiful.
Jack: So, I came to drop off this bag you left in the jet. My pilot had it messengered over.
Phyllis: Ahh. I thought I lost this. Great. Ah! I’m wearing it to the cocktail party.
Jack: I somehow doubt you were lacking in wardrobe choices.
Phyllis: [ Laughs ] I have about a dozen dresses that I brought.
Jack: [ Chuckles ]
Phyllis: But I got this one special. I’m supporting my daughter’s flourishing career.
Jack: Of course you are. And you’ll look absolutely stunning in it. I have no doubt. So, where’s nick?
Phyllis: Uh, he’s taking the bull by the horns right now. I mean, we’re here against victoria’s explicit directions not to come. Let’s hope, uh — let’s hope it’s worth it.
[ Indistinct conversations ]
Victor: Hey, my boy.
Nick: This place looks great.
Victor: Doesn’t it?
Nick: Hey, mom.
Nikki: Nicholas, oh, you’re here! I’m so glad.
Nick: Hey, dad.
Nikki: Does that mean that victoria changed her mind about having you at the wedding?
Nick: Uh, afraid not. But I’m not gonna give up. I wanted to talk to you two first to see if you could give me a read on vick before i approach her myself.
Nick: You think there’s any chance I can repair things before she says “I do”?
Nate: [ Sighs heavily ]
Elena: Huh. So, this is what you’re up to. We have this whole palatial estate to explore, and yet you’re here staring at your tablet screen.
Nate: I want to spend time with you. Really, I do.
Nate: I’m having trouble coming up with my best man toast.
Nate: I am no speechwriter. I don’t want it to sound stilted. It needs to be smooth, warm, and brilliant, you know? Something worthy of the power couple.
Elena: I can completely understand why you’re having a difficult time. You haven’t known ashland for very long. So you don’t have any old embarrassing stories or funny anecdotes to share.
Nate: Yeah, you’re not making this any easier.
Elena: That just means I will have to find a way to help. Come with me.
Elena: To find some romantic inspiration.
Victoria: Some of our guests have already checked in, and the rest are gonna be arriving right on time. So it looks like everything is set.
Ashland: Is it, though?
Victoria: Well, I don’t have anything left on my to-do list.
Ashland: Oh, that’s not what I meant. I have no doubt that all the arrangements will be in order. I’m more concerned about your heart. Now that you have time to let everything I’ve told you sink in, are you really, truly all-in for the wedding tomorrow? I just don’t want you to go through with the marriage if your main motivation is for some precaution to save our company.
Gaines: Wow. This place is something else. Maybe I’ll use some of my payoff cash to buy myself a little palazzo like this one.
Billy: We’re not here for a shopping spree, okay? So just slow down. We got a job to do.
Gaines: And I, for one, am ready to do my part. I have been waiting a long time for this — the well-deserved and ultimate downfall of ashland locke. So, how do you see it playing out?
Billy: Very carefully.
Gaines: You know, I was hoping for something dramatic, like humiliating him while he’s standing on the altar, waiting for his precious bride. Hi. So you’re the scientist here.
Billy: I understand you’re starting to taste your revenge against ashland, but we are not looking for pyrotechnics here.
Gaines: What’s wrong with a little fireworks? Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. The more painful and embarrassing the reveal, the better.
Billy: Jesse, I’m gonna be very clear. I am here to protect victoria. I do not want to cause her any more pain than what is necessary. I simply want to give her the irrefutable proof that she is about to marry a liar and a criminal.
Gaines: So, what’s your plan?
Billy: Hopefully I can convince victoria to speak with me alone. I’ll bring her back the suite, and you can fill her in with all the details. I want to give her a little bit of space and some privacy with no distractions or interruptions so she can come to her own conclusion, which I’m hoping is calling the whole thing off.
Gaines: Well, as long as the outcome is the same — locke humiliated on his big wedding day.
Billy: I’m gonna go find victoria. You wait here. Sit tight. Don’t go exploring. Don’t go showing your face. If anybody sees you, it could blow the whole thing up.
[ Door closes ]
Victoria: Trust me, ashland. One way or another, newman/locke will be safe.
Ashland: Uh-oh. I know that look. Now, what does my beautiful bride have up her sleeve? ‘Cause it sounds like you have some kind of a plan to protect the company.
Victoria: All I want to focus on right now is the love that we have for each other and our wedding. And I think everything else can wait.
Ashland: It means so much to me that you are still standing by me despite everything you now know.
Victoria: You know, I keep thinking about your childhood, picturing that anxious teen boy having to make those life-changing decisions all on his own, running away from an abusive home, leaving everything and everyone behind, and then losing the one friend that you had in the whole world in a car accident.
Victoria: Worst of all, you felt like your mentor, the women who meant more to you than your own mother — you felt like she betrayed you on her deathbed. The story — it just haunts me. It really does. So I can see how, even when you became the formidable ashland locke, that it followed you around everywhere.
Ashland: Yeah. That’s exactly how it felt. Hovering over me all the time like a dark cloud. And you do understand.
Victoria: Yes, I do. And I have come to terms with why you didn’t tell me. I — I know that you didn’t want to taint the beautiful relationship that we were building.
[ Sighs ] But now that it has, I just want you to know something. It’s okay. We’re okay. And you’re gonna have to trust me now. And by this time tomorrow, you and I are gonna be husband and wife. And nothing is gonna stop that now. Nothing is gonna stop that now.
Jack: You don’t have to worry about nick. He knows how to handle victoria. I’m just hopeful that she changes her mind and asks him to stay for the ceremony. She knows it wouldn’t be the same without her brother there.
Phyllis: You know, they’ve had so many arguments. So many. But this has gotten really out of control.
Jack: She’s loyal to the man she loves, just the same way he defended you to her over the years.
Phyllis: Well, that’s for sure. When she went after the grand phoenix, he saved my hotel. I will support him.
Jack: Okay, I just want you to know — you are the last person to convince victoria to change her mind.
Phyllis: Oh, I know that. How about you? She’s already respected you.
Jack: I am not getting in the middle of this. They are gonna have to work this all out themselves.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I wish she would just listen to him. It’s so crazy that she’s not doing that. Honestly.
[ Sighs ] You know what? They’ll work this out. They always do.
Jack: It is the beauty of family.
Phyllis: She can’t keep on holding this against him. He was just trying to help her.
Jack: I’m sure he feels justified in his actions. Look, at least now he realizes that it’s time to let go and accept the inevitability of this wedding, unlike some people we know.
Phyllis: Who? Billy?
Jack: Do not ask me to enumerate the number of times i have told billy to let victoria live her life.
Phyllis: Okay, I won’t ask you. Ah, I do respect how nick will go above and beyond for someone he loves. I do respect that. But sometimes talking nice is not the right way to go, and i am afraid that’s what he’s trying to do right now.
Nikki: Darling, you know how much we want to see you and victoria work things out. We’re just not sure how receptive she will be to your surprise appearance.
Nick: I can’t stay away, alright? It’s vick’s wedding day and i want to be here and I need to make my case to her in person.
Nikki: And I agree with you. It’s just that she’s dealing with so much prenuptial stress as it is.
Victor: Son, a lot of this was brought on by you digging into ashland’s past.
Nick: Right. Do I need to remind you that we were both investigating locke?
Victor: No, you don’T. The difference is I didn’t go to new jersey to dig up old skeletons.
Nick: I will accept responsibility for what I’ve done. I was trying to get the truth, but the only thing I want to do now is make things easier on my sister. Vick and I have been in lots of fights over the years. We always find a way to make it work. Are you telling me that we can’t do it this time?
Victor: All I’m telling you, son, is that I don’t want anyone to cause any problems on victoria’s happy day, alright?
Nick: Are you saying I’m a problem?
Nikki: Alright, now, this is victoria’s moment. The last thing she needs is to have the two of you arguing.
Nikki: Hold on a second. Are you two telling me you’re both on board with this wedding?
Nick: Mom, you’re willing to stand there next to victoria as dad is handing victoria away to this guy who’s been lying his entire life? Who got everything he has because he exploited a death? Really?
Elena: [ Chuckles ]
Nate: So, the trip to the little winery down the road was a great idea. But unfortunately, it didn’t clear my writer’s block.
Elena: What?! How can you not be inspired by that old couple who own the winery? Their story was so romantic.
Nate: It was, but I’m not sure how that relates to victoria and ashland. Look, our new vineyard friends met in elementary school, and they’ve been inseparable ever since, which is pretty much the opposite of the bride and groom’s story.
Elena: Okay, but maybe that’s your angle. Sometimes your first love isn’t always the love of your life.
Nate: Okay, but referencing people’s exes during a wedding toast — probably not the best idea.
Elena: Good point. Okay, so, what do we know about ashland and victoria? They met during work. That’s something the both of us know know a little bit about.
Nate: Sharing professional interests can bring two people together.
Elena: Yes. That means that they have the same passions and values.
Nate: Mm. Working long hours together, saving lives. Oh, wait. That’s us.
[ Both laugh ] Um…structuring deals, making massive financial transactions?
[ Chuckles ] Whatever it is victoria and ashland do with their day.
Elena: Your guess is as good as mine. I was always a lot more excited about the O.R. Than executive suites.
Nate: Maybe I need to do a little research.
Elena: Well, in the meantime, we have this fine italian wine, and this will get our creative juices flowing.
Billy: Hey, you two.
Nate: Hope you got an extra glass for me.
Nate: Billy. You made it.
Billy: I did, yeah. We had a smooth flight. How was yours? How was, uh, ashland’s private jet?
Nate: Ah, it couldn’t have been better.
[ Chuckles ]
Elena: So, billy, I hope your arrival here means that you’ve come to terms with the fact that this wedding is going to happen?
Nate: Yeah, there’s no way victoria’s backing out now.
Billy: Yeah, well, we’ll see. I, uh — I assume everything’s gonna go exactly how it’s supposed to. Now, if you don’t mind, I’m actually looking for victoria. Excuse me.
Nate: I get the feeling he’s not letting this go.
Elena: Yeah, and he’s fighting a losing battle.
[ Door opens ]
Ashland: [ Coughs ]
[ Breathing heavily ]
Victoria: Are you okay?
Ashland: Oh, I’m fine. It’s just a little cough.
[ Coughs ]
Victoria: Have you been taking your medication?
Ashland: Yes. I’m okay. Really.
Victoria: I really hope that the stress of the last two days hasn’t exacerbated your condition.
Ashland: I promise I won’t let anything slow me down or get in the way of reciting my vows to you.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Do you know what you’re gonna say? I mean, unless you want me to tell the minister that we’ve changed our minds about writing our own vows.
Ashland: Mine are written on my heart, and they have been for a long time. What about you?
Victoria: I wrote mine down on paper a little while back.
Ashland: Really? Can I get a preview?
Victoria: No, you may not. It’s gonna be a surprise.
Ashland: Well, then I will enjoy the anticipation.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Well, I think I’m ready.
Ashland: You certainly are. You know, I’m not sure if I’m ready to let you out of my sight.
Victoria: You won’t have to for very long if you hurry up and get dressed. Besides, losing a few moments doesn’t really matter. We’re gonna have so many moments together in the future. So hurry up and get dressed and meet me downstairs. I’m gonna check in on my parents and see if the rest of our friends and family have arrived.
Ashland: [ Exhales heavily ]
[ Coughs ]
[ Sighs ]
Jack: Hey. Don’t worry about nick. What’s the worst that could happen?
Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] The worst that could happen is victoria’s security throws us out on our butts and it would be really awkward.
Jack: Yeah, that would be bad.
Jack: Yeah, well, just don’t be pessimistic. Put on your pretty dress, get ready for the cocktail party, and let’s hope everyone gets along.
[ Cellphones chirp ] Ohh! I don’t want bad news.
Jack: It’s not bad news. Take a look.
Phyllis: Ooh! The wedding pictures from summer and kyle’s wedding. She is stunning. They look so happy. Wow. You know, somebody may call me biased, but, uh, ashland and victoria’s splashy affair doesn’t hold a candle to this beautiful, intimate ceremony, even with this whole palazzo backdrop.
Jack: I’m sure both weddings will be perfect… in their own way.
[ Door closes ]
Nick: I’m sorry, but I don’t get it. I don’t know how you two can be supportive of this wedding. And, dad, it wasn’t that long ago that you yourself were looking into ashland’s past. I thought we were on the same page about this. What changed?
Victor: What changed, son, is that ashland confessed, okay? He came clean about his identity.
Nick: He only did that because I confronted him with the truth. He told us half the story, and he left out the part where he left his best friend in the world to die in a burning car. Who the hell does something like that?
Nikki: At that point, he thought his friend was already gone, beyond help.
Nick: I — I don’t know how you can make excuses for him.
Victor: Son, let’s put an end to this. I’m very appreciative of the fact that you are concerned about your sister’s well-being. But kindly let this go now, alright? Accept her decision. That’s it.
[ Footsteps approaching ] People everywhere living with type 2 diabetes
Nikki: Nicholas came here because he wants to make peace. You should hear him out, darling.
Victor: That alright with you, my sweetheart?
Victoria: It’s fine. There’s nothing that nicholas can say or do that’s going to upset me more than I already am.
Victor: You two work it out, okay?
Victoria: Okay, nicholas. I hope that you’re not going to try to tell me that I need to stop this wedding again because that’s definitely not going to happen.
Victor: [ Sighs heavily ] I’m afraid nicholas won’t let this go. The last thing I want him to do is to ruin this special day for our daughter.
Nikki: I understand why you’re worried, but I believe that nicholas will put his sister’s happiness first.
Victor: I only hope you’re right.
Nikki: Believe me. I was very upset when I heard that she had disinvited him, but I have to respect that. My biggest concern right now is that nicholas doesn’t yet know of ashland’s latest surprise.
Victor: Sweetheart, the fewer people know about this, the better, okay?
Nikki: [ Sighs ] Well, this last confession of his was atrocious. Forging your mentor’s will? If nicholas learns about that before the ceremony, it will only add fuel to his fire.
Victor: Sweetheart, the most important thing is that victoria has made peace with ashland. She’s okay with it, alright? That’s what’s important. The other secret needs to stay buried, and I will see to it that it does.
Nick: I promise you I’m not here to try to and stop your wedding.
Victoria: Right. You call it showing your concern, but your goal is the same.
Nick: Look, I get where you’re coming from, and I hate it that this has come between us. It was never my intention to betray you.
Victoria: But that’s exactly what you did.
Nick: Vick, I swear to you, i was hoping that I wouldn’t find anything shady about ashland.
Victoria: But you did. And then you just couldn’t let it go.
Nick: Because I’m worried about you. But I’ve had a lot of time to think about it, okay? And I guess I can understand… why ashland would work so hard to keep, you know, a painful memory a secret.
Victoria: But you still judge him for what he did.
Nick: Look, if me telling you the truth doesn’t make you change your mind about marrying this guy, I’m not gonna try and convince you otherwise. I have to respect your decision. Now, I’m not gonna tell you that I like it or that I’m ever gonna be able to trust this guy.
Victoria: Oh, that’s — that’s really very funny since you have completely destroyed my trust in you. You showed no regard for my feelings or for my wishes. How am I ever supposed to confide in you again?
Nick: All I can say is that i truly believed I was acting in your best interest. I don’t want to break this trust that we have. But I need you to know, vick, that I would never do anything to hurt you on purpose.
Victoria: Your apology doesn’t even begin to make up for what you did.
Nick: So, you’re saying you can’t even forgive me a little bit? It’s your wedding day. Now I’d really like to be here for my sister.
Ashland: [ Coughing ]
[ Gasping ]
[ Coughing ]
[ Breathing heavily ]
[ Coughs ]
Billy: Looks like you could use some help.
Ashland: [ Coughs ]
Billy: What can I do?
Ashland: [ Breathing heavily ] Need long-lasting freshness?
“The young and the restless”
Nick: Vick, I won’t say another word about ashland, alright? If you’re willing to put his past behind you, I’ll do the same.
Victoria: I appreciate the effort that you’re making, but i can tell that you’re still holding back about how you really feel about my fiancé. And that is the last thing that I need the day before my wedding. That being said, while I don’t forgive you, I won’t tell you to go, either.
Nick: What does that even mean?
Victoria: Our parents want us to be happy. They want this to be a celebration of family harmony. So, if you want to stick around for the reception and the wedding, that’s your choice.
Nick: So, you’ll let me stay for their sake?
Victoria: Dad gave me this palazzo as a wedding gift, and i am gonna make this a happy event for him. And you know how mom gets when we’re not getting along.
Nick: It’s your wedding. Your opinion is the only one that matters to me. Do you want me at this ceremony or not?
Victoria: Look, my focus is gonna be completely on ashland. If you happen to be in the crowd, I doubt I’ll even notice it.
Nick: [ Scoffs ] It’s not even an invitation, is it?
Victoria: I told you, you were welcome to come. What more do you expect from me?
Nick: I want to know where things stand with us.
Victoria: I’m not gonna talk with you about where we stand anymore. You hurt me, nicholas. It’s not my job to absolve you or to make you feel better. My only focus now is on ashland and my wedding.
Nick: [ Sighs ]
Billy: I know nate is on the premises. Maybe I should give him a call.
Ashland: That won’t be necessary. I’m fine.
Billy: You don’t look fine, ashland.
Ashland: I could use a glass of water.
[ Coughs ]
[ Breathing deeply ]
Billy: I still think calling nate would be a good idea.
Ashland: [ Coughs ] Thank you. You know, I’m surprised that you had the nerve to show your face. I heard that nikki urged you to, uh, gracefully bow out.
Billy: I think we both knew that that wasn’t gonna happen. I wasn’t gonna miss the most spectacular event of the year.
Ashland: You know, just in case you have any plans to disrupt the wedding, there’s something you should know.
Billy: Okay. Go ahead.
Victor: What the hell are you doing here?
Nikki: So, how did it go with nicholas? Were you two able to resolve your issues?
Victoria: Well, I didn’t kick him out, but I’m not exactly thrilled that he’s here, either.
Nikki: Well, I am. You made the right decision letting him stay.
Nikki: Oh, you made it!
Jack: What a spectacular palazzo, an ideal location for a wedding.
Victoria: Well, I also heard that summer and kyle’s wedding was very special. I wish I had been able to make it.
Jack: It was wonderful, you were missed, but it seemed like you had your hands full.
Victoria: Yes, maybe just a little. But I’m glad that they’ll be coming here so I can congratulate them in person.
Jack: And they’ll be bringing harrison with them.
Victoria: I know. Ashland is so looking forward to seeing his son.
Jack: Well, I happen to know the feeling is mutual. How is ashland doing?
Victoria: My fiancé’s very strong. He’s handling the treatments well.
Jack: Well, it sounds like congratulations are in order all around.
Nikki: Yes, we are on track to have a glorious wedding.
Victoria: Yes, as long as i make sure that everything is under control.
Nikki: Well, it is, darling. You don’t have to do another thing.
Victoria: Well, there are just actually a few more things that I do need to check on.
Jack: Victoria seems a little tense. Everything alright?
Victor: Now, billy boy, knowing you, I’m not a bit surprised that you’re loitering around where you’re not welcome.
Billy: I got an invitation, just like everyone else.
Victor: And you didn’t have the common sense to stay home?
Billy: If you don’t mind, victor, ashland and I are having a private conversation.
Victor: I don’t give a damn. I’m here to talk to the man who’s actually worthy of marrying my daughter.
Billy: Oh, come on. You don’t honestly believe that, do you?
Victor: You bet. Now, for your information, this is my property. I can have you thrown out of the damn place, or you walk out on your own.
Billy: Ashland, we’re not done yet, are we?
Ashland: I’m going to have to agree with my future father-in-law. Victor suggested that you leave the premises. So what are you waiting for? Scoot over.
Nikki: Well, yes, victoria is a little tense, but what bride isn’t? I was a bundle of nerves on our wedding day — both of them, as I recall.
Jack: Who could forget? I understand, though, there’s been a bit of friction between nicholas and victoria. I hope they’re not gonna let it ruin the day.
Nikki: Oh, no. But, uh, I can’t deny there’s has been a little bit of family conflict.
Jack: Well, I think that’s natural. Big event, lots of family. Nerves are bound to be frayed. Believe me. I have been in that situation with my sister more times than i can count. Everything works out in the end. It’s gonna be a stunning wedding.
Nikki: [ Sighs ] Well, the ceremony is small, just those closest to them, but the reception is going to be a much grander celebration.
Nate: Nikki. Jack.
Nikki: Hey, nate!
Jack: Elena! Good to see you.
Elena: Great to see you, jack.
Nikki: I hope you’ve been enjoying yourselves.
Elena: How could we not in a place this beautiful?
Nate: We’ve already visited the neighborhood winery.
Jack: Ooh, I’m gonna add that to my list of things to do.
Elena: [ Laughs ] So, nikki, are you ready for the big day?
Nikki: I think I’ve just about got everything all set.
Elena: [ Laughs ] Well, then you’re doing much better than nate. He’s still struggling with his best man toast.
Jack: Wait. Best man? I didn’t know that. In fact, I didn’t know the two of you were close at all.
Nate: Oh, it’s a new friendship, but a strong one.
Jack: Well, ashland is a man of many surprises.
Nikki: Yes, he certainly is.
[ Chuckles ]
Phyllis: Hey! Oh, well, looking at your face, it didn’t go how you wanted it.
Nick: That’s an understatement.
[ Sighs ]
Phyllis: I’m sorry. I know how you wanted everything to work out.
Nick: Well, my sister’s just not in a very forgiving mood.
Phyllis: What about your parents? Can they step in?
Nick: No, they can’t because they’re both firmly on team ashland.
Phyllis: Really? I don’t even get that.
Nick: Yeah, me either. Vick did say I could go to the wedding if I wanted to.
Phyllis: Well, alright, that’s good. I mean, she’s coming around. That should make you feel better.
Nick: No, because her heart wasn’t in it when she asked. She’s just tired of us arguing, so she reluctantly gave in. But she made it very clear that this decision is not an act of forgiveness.
Phyllis: I don’t know why she’s being like this. Honestly, you’ve done everything you could, you know? You apologized. You were just trying to help her.
Nick: Well, it hasn’t done a damn bit of good because she still is really upset.
Phyllis: You know, I don’t get this. Maybe it’s the bridezilla thing. Maybe she’s just really tense before the wedding. You know what I mean? Because she’s being really, really petty, and she’s treating you like dirt. And I don’t like it.
Nick: Look, my sister has a right to feel the way she does, alright? So don’t use this as another opportunity to start trashing her. This is my battle. I’ll deal with it.
[ Sighs ]
Victoria: Hey, reed, listen. Don’t be sorry. I hate that you can’t make it, too, but I totally understand. Other than missing you, I mean, I’m good. Everything is fine. No. It’s more than fine. It’s — it’s perfection.
Billy: So, I guess whatever you had to say isn’t all that consequential in the grand scheme of things? Well, I will give you two your privacy. Oh, one last thing. Do you know where I can find victoria?
Victor: Billy boy, you’re pressing your luck, okay? You stay away from my daughter. This is her special occasion. I will not have you destroy her happy moments. Do you understand?
Billy: Oh, don’t worry. I won’t be the one to cause the bride any distress.
Victor: Now get out.
Ashland: I caught your look earlier. I hope this is important. I was just about to tell billy that victoria knows all my secrets, including the one that gaines is holding over my head. I was hoping it might undercut his plans to disrupt the wedding.
Victor: I don’t understand why victoria invited him in the first place, especially given the information I just received from adam.
Ashland: Another complication?
Victor: [ Sighs ] The chartered flight that billy was on apparently had another passenger.
Ashland: Lily, I would assume.
Victor: No. She’s flying separately with my grandchildren.
Ashland: So, who was with billy?
Victor: Jesse gaines.
Ashland: [ Sighs heavily ]
Victor: The description that I was given of him fit him perfectly, okay? And he’s the only other one who knows about your crime, ashland.
Ashland: [ Sighs ] Yawns “okay okay, I’m up, I’m up!”
Elena: Wow. Everything about this place is incredible. The rolling hills, the majestic views. It’s breathtaking.
Nate: I second that.
Nikki: This place has always held a special spot in my heart. Victor and I have had many romantic holidays here.
Jack: You can almost feel the magic of tuscany in the air.
Nikki: Perfect for a wedding.
Phyllis: Listen, I know it’s your battle. I’m just in the trenches with you. I just wanted you to know that. I’m trying to help. I’m not trying to trash victoria. That’s not what I’m trying to do. I just want you to know that you’re not the one who’s wrong in any of this.
Nick: I just — I feel bad, you know? All I wanted to do was help my sister, but all I have done is hurt her. And I don’t want to do that anymore. I certainly don’t want to cast a shadow over her wedding by staying here.
Phyllis: Seriously? Are we leaving?
Nick: [ Sighs ]
Ashland: How did billy abbott get his hands on jesse gaines?
Victor: I don’t know. But you and I will have to think about this rationally. We have to handle him.
Ashland: Well, how did he make it to italy without you knowing?
Victoria: What’s going on?
Billy: Gaines, time to get ready. Gaines.
[ Sighs ] Damn it.
