[ Mid-tempo music playing ]


ooh, yeah

Noah: Allie. What are the chances of running into you here?

Allie: What?

Noah: I said, what are —

Allie: [ Chuckles ] Sorry. Hey.

Noah: I was trying to make a joke about running into you when you’re about to go running.

Allie: That’s not really a joke since I called you and invited you to join me.

Noah: Okay. Not funny. But, you know, it did sound a little charming in my head.

Allie: Mm-hmm. Sure it did. Alright. Are you ready?

Noah: Let’s do this.

Allie: Alright. Great. Try to keep up!

Nick: Hey.

Sharon: So, what brings you by? A big cup of coffee or a little friendly conversation?

Nick: I’ll take both.

Sharon: I, um, saw victor and adam’s press conference earlier. I hope you knew that all of that was gonna happen.

Nick: Yeah, I was fully aware and in the loop this time. Once victoria said she was reunited with ashland, the writing was on the wall. She packed up her things, she said goodbye to the family, and then left town, the way she said she was gonna.

Sharon: Really? I’m kind of surprised how quickly that situation escalated.

Nick: When my sister makes up her mind, there is no slowing her down.

Sharon: Mm. Well, I hope you at least got to speak to victoria before she left and tell her that you will always be there for her, no matter what she decides to do.

Nick: I did, uh, get a chance to talk to her. Grateful for that. Obviously completely disagree with her decision, but me being frustrated with the family is pretty common right now.

Sharon: Is there something else going on?

Nick: I just really don’t like it that my dad put adam into the ceo seat. We both know how he handled that last time. And I think it’s a foolish move to shove adam right into victoria’s chair before it even gets cold. Victoria’s reign may be over, but trust me — the second round of games is about to begin.

Mariah: [ Sighs ]

[ Keys clacking ]

[ Guitar music playing ]

Tessa: [ Clears throat ] Hi.

Mariah: Hey.

Tessa: [ Smooches ]

Mariah: Why’d you stop? Oh, well, uh, with you working remotely, I figured my music was probably distracting.

Mariah: What are you talking about? How many people get to work with a private concert in the background? I love it. Just like I love calling you my wife.

Tessa: Well, tell me — what’s my wife working on lately?

Mariah: Well, uh, the marketing team has their hands full now that jabot has acquired marchetti, so we all need to get up to speed on the fashion industry.

Tessa: Whew, that sounds like a pretty big deal.

Mariah: It is. It is. But we can handle it. It’s all good. And it means that kyle is gonna be sticking around for longer with harrison. You know, I’d even be happy to see summer stick around, too.

Tessa: Look how far you’ve come.

Mariah: I know. It’s wonderful.

[ Laughs ]

Tessa: [ Laughs ]

Mariah: But as thrilled as i am that they’re gonna be staying in town, that also means that kyle’s mom, diane, is gonna be doing the same. And that… that is very, very complicated for a lot of people in genoa city.

Tessa: Hmm.

Diane: Jack, is everything alright?

Jack: Yeah. Yeah. Everything’s fine. I just have something I have to deal with.

Diane: Oh. Then I’ll let you have some privacy. I was hoping to spend some time with harrison anyway. I thought maybe I could take him to the park, if that’s alright?

Jack: Uh, sure. I’m sure he’d like that, especially with kyle and summer kind of tied up.

Diane: Excellent. I will go get him ready and let the nanny know she can take a break.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Jack: [ Breathes deeply ]

Jack: Phyllis.

Phyllis: Hey. Thank you for picking up. I just wanted to tell you that I’m back in town. Um…

[ Sighs ] Listen. I’d love to talk. Um, we still have some unresolved business.

Jack: I think I said before you left that there’s nothing more for us to say.

Phyllis: Okay. Listen, are we gonna let this thing with diane ruin all the progress we’ve made?

Jack: This thing was between you and me, not diane.

Phyllis: You’re right. You’re right. Can we at least talk about it?

Jack: Yeah. We can. We should do this in person, though. I’ll come to you.

[ Keys jangling ]

Diane: Harrison is so excited about our playdate. I’ll just pack some snacks.

Jack: Good. Have fun.

[ Door closes ]

Tessa: Well, I hope that kyle knows, whatever happens with diane, that we’re here to support him.

Mariah: Oh. Yeah. I’ve definitely made that clear. I mean, I know what it’s like to have your mom come into your life suddenly when you’re an adult, so I’m happy to be his sounding board.

Tessa: Mm.

Mariah: What are you looking for in there?

Tessa: Uh, tea and honey. I thought that we had some, but I guess we’re out.

Mariah: Really? I mean, we had plenty the other day. Did you go through it already?

Tessa: Yeah. I guess I must have. I’ve been drinking a lot because my throat is still a little sore.

Mariah: Does it hurt to sing?

Tessa: No, no. Uh, not really. I was just resting my voice because I’ve been singing a lot for rehearsing for tour, and that’s probably why it’s aggravated. I’m sure it’s no big deal.

Mariah: Maybe you’re coming down with something.

Tessa: Well, but I don’t have any other symptoms. It’s probably allergies. You know, it’s that time of year.

Mariah: Yeah, but your throat’s been bugging you ever since we got back from the honeymoon. Maybe you should go and have it checked out. You know, I heard of these amazing people. They’re called doctors. And they can help with that sort of thing.

Tessa: I’m sure it’s nothing. And instead of debating the issue, maybe you should, uh, take a break with me.

Sharon: Newman family games. That sounds ominous.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Dad and adam are only thinking about themselves. You know, they each have an agenda. They’re not thinking about what’s best for the company.

Sharon: Well, hopefully they at least have one goal in common — that newman enterprises succeeds, right?

Nick: I will allow that adam does seem to possess the skills to do a job like this. He’s done a great job of evolving in the past year. But his desire to ascend to the throne comes from a very selfish place.

Sharon: Look, I’m — I’m not trying to defend adam here, but — I don’t know — is it possible that maybe you’re being a little too hard on him?

Nick: Sharon, just look this situation with ashland. Adam doesn’t give a damn about victoria or what happens to her. He’s just patiently waiting for his chance to swoop in and grab the ceo title for himself.

Sharon: Hmm. Well, maybe he was just concerned that the company would suffer with so much going on?

Nick: Ultimately, his true motives don’t even matter. I mean, this was dad’s call to make. And it’s not like he didn’t have other options. I mean, my mom certainly could have done the job herself, or, in an emergency, dad could have stepped back in.

Sharon: You know, I’m surprised that nikki didn’t push for that job. I mean, she was victoria’s co-ceo.

Nick: Yeah, she’s got mixed feelings about that. But this move was made to send a message to victoria and to provoke a reaction. So, this isn’t about business. It’s strictly personal.

Sharon: Ah, so your parents are hoping this move with adam will make victoria come running back.

Nick: There you go.

Sharon: Well, hey, it’s a gamble, but it could work. And if it does, where does that leave adam?

Nick: Well, adam’s no dummy. I’m sure he’s got his eyes wide open. He knows how dad likes to operate, but he wants to prove that he’s the right man for the job, whether my sister changes her mind or not. And unfortunately, I don’t see that happening.

Sharon: It just never ends, does it?

Nick: It really doesn’T. This whole thing is filled with a bunch of gory details I’m not gonna bore you with, but just know this — everyone has got an angle, but they’re all acting on emotion. My sister, my dad, adam, my mom. They all just need to take a collective breath and figure out what is the next best move to make.

Sharon: And who’s gonna get them to do that?

Nick: Well, unfortunately, it’s times like this I’m reminded that I don’t have a real official role at newman, other than my board seat. So, at times, I would like to have more influence over the, uh — the outcomes of the crises when they pop up.

Sharon: What are you saying here? Are you actually considering going back to newman? Can dove stop 98%

Nick: That was not my intent. I’m not seriously considering throwing my hat back into the ring at newman.

Sharon: Mm, maybe not consciously, but the way you were talking just now…

Nick: I don’t know. I just would like to be more than just some voice offering up my opinions and advice from the outside.

Sharon: Since when? ‘Cause I thought you wanted nothing to do with newman enterprises.

Nick: Yeah. Me too. But this whole situation’s got me really rethinking some things. I mean, it’s been a long time since I’ve felt like this. I thought everything was going great. You know, the company was flourishing under victoria’s incredible leadership. Mom was her right-hand man. Dad was in advisory role. Adam was over at newman media crushing it.

Sharon: Well, then that all blew up.

Nick: Again. I’m just [Sighs] — Just very nervous about how this is gonna play out within my family and also in the eyes of the public and the business world.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Tessa: Hi.

Nick: Hey. There they are.

Mariah: Hi.

Sharon: Oh, there’s the two newlyweds. I barely see you since you’ve been home from france, even though you live right upstairs.

Tessa: Oh, yeah, well…

Mariah: We’ve just been taking care of stuff that piled up when we were gone.

Nick: Ah. Too busy honeymooning.

Sharon: Hey, enjoy some time alone being honeymooners. Say no more.

Nick: How’s your day today?

Mariah: Uh, well, I am fantastic, but this one…

Tessa: This one is fine. I just need a mug of tea and honey.

Mariah: Yeah, because she guzzled all of ours down for her sore throat.

Sharon: Really? That’s been going on for a while now, hasn’t it?

Tessa: Yeah, but I’m — I’m sure it’s nothing.

Sharon: Well, whether it is or whether it isn’t, um, you should see someone about it.

Mariah: And there it is, the other reason why we are here — because I knew that I would find someone who agrees with me.

[ Both breathing heavily ]

Noah: You know, I consider myself a pretty decent athlete.

Allie: You do?

Noah: Yeah.

Allie: Yeah?

Noah: I play sports, I work out all the time, but… you’re fast, like, really fast.

Allie: Well, I run almost every day. It’s kind of my thing. Well, one of my many things.

Noah: Along with chemical engineering, being super analytical and precise about everything? You know, some people might say you’re a type-a personality.

Allie: And you know what? Those people might be right. What? You got a problem with it?

Noah: No. No. In fact, I kind of envy you. I wish I had a routine.

Allie: You can always create new habits right now.

Noah: Nah. Nah. It’s just not me. I’ve always needed to be inspired to get stuff done.

Allie: Mm. Well, maybe — just maybe — you can find some inspiration from the way I just kicked your butt.

Noah: Oh.

Allie: I mean, I’m sure you don’t want to be embarrassed like that again.

Noah: Oh, that will never happen again.

Allie: Ah. Uh-huh.

Diane: Have fun on the playground, harrison! Oh. Nice to see you two.

[ Knock on door ]

Phyllis: Hey. Thank you for coming. Come on in. Thanks. Um…thank you for the opportunity. Uh… and you’re right. It’s better to talk face-to-face.

Jack: I’m here to let you say whatever it is you have to say, but I should warn you — it’s not gonna change anything.

Phyllis: Okay. I get it. Thanks for giving me the chance. You want some wine?

Jack: It’s a little early for me. Please don’t let me stop you.

Phyllis: Okay, well, I’m — I’m having wine. It’s good for the nerves. I mean — but please join me. It’s a great year. Um… you’re not gonna make me drink alone, are you?

Jack: This isn’t gonna work, red.

Phyllis: Well, how do you know that? You haven’t even heard anything I have to say. You know better than to count me out. If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Sharon: Okay, tessa, you are my daughter-in-law now, so I’m going to give you some motherly advice. You need to make an appointment. It’s been too many days, and it’s not gotten better. And what could it hurt? If it’s something minor, it’s no harm, no foul, and if it is something more serious, well, you’ll have caught it early.

Nick: And nobody has brought up the real upset of all this, and that is you could get mariah to stop bugging you to death about it because we all know she’s never gonna let it go.

Sharon: Love is the most important part of marriage, but compromise is right up there with it.

Mariah: Exactly. And, look, one day you are gonna need me to compromise on something, and I promise I will do it gladly for the benefit of our relationship.

Tessa: I’m gonna hold you to that because we have witnesses.

Mariah: I promise. So, you’ll make the appointment?

Tessa: Ugh! Okay, okay. I’ll see if my doctor can squeeze me in.

Mariah: Today.

Tessa: Okay. As soon as possible.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ] Wonderful. I knew I came to the right place.

Nick: You’re welcome.

Sharon: [ Laughs ]

Diane: Allie, I’m glad you found another young person to hang out with. You two seem to be spending a lot of time together. And, noah, I’m sure you know other people your age that you could introduce allie to, as well.

Noah: Yeah, I do, but I don’t see why that’s any of your concern.

Allie: Noah, she’s just — she’s just being friendly.

Diane: No, no, it’s alright, allie. I thought noah was okay with me. He seemed fine the last time we saw each other. But now I know he was just holding back.

Noah: What did you expect? What, that I could just forget the past, stand around making small talk like nothing ever happened? I wish I can give you the benefit of the doubt, diane. I really do. But you did some seriously messed-up stuff to people I care about. And I don’t plan on getting over that anytime soon.

Phyllis: Okay. Uh, listen, I did a lot of thinking when I was in savannah, and, um… how I flaunted our relationship to stick it to diane. I’m — [ Sighs ] I hate that you think I used you. I’m so sorry. If I could do it over again… listen. You were right to be furious with me. I’m — I’m furious with myself.

Jack: Phyllis —

Phyllis: Just let me finish. Just let me — let me finish. Um… uh, it was outrageous and it was immature and it wrong. And there’s no justifying it. I’m not — I’m not trying to justify my actions.

[ Breathes deeply ] Jack. It’s old wounds, you know? It’s just a lot of old wounds and insecurities and… it’s getting the better of me.

Jack: You talk a great game. You always have. I’ve heard this before. And remember — I got a recent reminder that you are a master at faking sincerity.

Phyllis: You think I’m faking it right now? Is that what you think? You think I’m being cavalier about this?

[ Voice breaking ] I’m wearing my heart on my sleeve right now. I may seem fine, but I am losing it inside. I am losing it. And I am sorry. I don’t know what to tell you. I regret my actions. I regret them. I do. I mean, and I cannot believe that I blew everything up when we were getting so close.

Jack: Close to what? We had a couple passionate encounters, prompted by the return of a woman you hate.

Phyllis: Is that how you see everything?

Jack: No, what we had is not the beginning of a relationship. What we had…is a moment… to imagine what could have been, a little what-if. At least, that’s what it was for me. For you, it was a calculated move designed to one-up diane.

Phyllis: Okay, it was more complicated than that.

Jack: Oh, you want to be honest? Good. Let’s be honest. You only regret what you did because it backfired. I thought things had changed. I thought things you changed. I thought you were finally capable of building a future that we talked about, that we wanted, that we deserved. That woman came back to town, and in no time out comes the phyllis of years ago. I am not gonna make the same mistakes again. You have to accept the fact that whatever fleeting moment we had is over.

Phyllis: I have changed. I have. And I will prove it to you.

When you can’t sleep…

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Diane: You have every reason to feel that way about me, noah.

Allie: Look, guys, I wasn’t here when all of this happened, so I can’t speak to that. But what I do know is that diane did me a big favor. Without her, I would still have been all alone out in the world, and now I have this big, beautiful family, out of nowhere.

Noah: Yeah, but the way she went about introducing you and jack was a bit sketchy, don’t you think?

Allie: Agreed. Absolutely. She could have gone about it in a better way. But I do think who she is now versus what she did in the past isn’t the same person.

Diane: Thank you, allie. I’m touched and grateful that you’ve even given me even half a chance. But I have no choice. I have to face these attacks because I did do some pretty terrible things. And I understand that there are some people who will have a problem with my presence here, but I can take it. Because spending time with my son and grandson makes it all absolutely worth it. Harrison, come on, little one!

Noah: [ Sighs ]

Mariah: I am so glad that tessa’s doctor could get her in today. She was being so stubborn. She wasn’t listening to me. So, thank you for the backup.

Sharon: Just doing my mother-in-law duties.

Mariah: And thank you for letting us derail whatever conversation you were having when we walked in.

Nick: Tessa’s health is far more important.

Mariah: Well, I saw the look between the two of you. Anything wrong?

Sharon: Um, no complaints on my end, at least not at the moment.

Mariah: Nick? What about you? Is everything alright?

Nick: I’m assuming you saw the press conference?

Mariah: Yes. Yes, I did. Victoria’s out. Adam’s in. I — I definitely did not see that coming.

Nick: Well, you should know by now newmans like to keep people on their toes.

Mariah: I’ll take that to mean that you don’t want to talk about it. Or least you don’t want to talk about it with me, which is fine. So, let me just say — I wish you luck with whatever you’re going through with your family.

Nick: Thank you.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Mariah: Oh. Um, well, that’s work, so I — I’ve got to take this. I’m so sorry. I have to run. But thank you guys. I’ll see you later.

Sharon: See you later.

Nick: Bye.

Mariah: Hi. Yes, uh, just one second. Let me grab my computer.

Sharon: So, where were we? Earlier it seemed like maybe you were just sorting through some of your feelings, but I got the distinct impression that you would not be content sitting on the sidelines of newman.

Nick: You seem shocked by the very idea of that.

Sharon: Oh, I am. Believe me, I never thought that we would be having this conversation again…ever.

Nick: [ Chuckles ]

Phyllis: I have flaws. I know I have flaws. Everybody has flaws. But I went and I extended an olive branch to that woman. I told her that I’m putting the past behind me. There’s no resentment. And you know why I did that? Because it was best for all of us.

Jack: From what I understand, the real reason for this grand gesture was summer, who was present at this supposed meeting of the minds. She have to drag you there kicking and screaming?

Phyllis: No, she didn’T. I went willingly.

Jack: Well, you’ll forgive me if I doubt the veracity of this so-called truth.

Phyllis: Okay, do you think that was easy for me to sit there and say all of that to diane? No. It was very difficult. But why did I do it? Because it was good. It was the greater good — for everyone!

Jack: Including us? There is no us.

Phyllis: Stop it.

[ Stammers ] Okay. Let’s just go back. When we went to california to find allie and then we discovered diane… I mean, did you — did you not feel that there was a deeper connection in our relationship?

Jack: As friends. As friends, phyllis. We should have settled for that. Look, I take full blame for crossing the linE. I should have known better. But I let my desire and my fervent hope for something greater get in my way. And now I may have destroyed even the friendship.

Phyllis: No, you didn’T. You didn’t destroy it. You didn’T. I’m still your friend. I mean, come on, jack. Enough of this. This is not where our story ends. You love rich, delicious ice cream.

Nick: Believe me, these thoughts of going back to newman are just as much of a shock to me, but what can I say? I’ve got a long history with that place.

Sharon: Yes. You led that company many times over the years. But I thought you were done with it now, at least in any formal capacity. And, you know, I was really proud of you when you extricated yourself from the family business and all of its drama that comes with it for what i thought was the very last time.

Nick: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. I was convinced I was done with that place forever.

Sharon: Well, you really embraced becoming your own man, and you’ve flourished at new hope. And now noah joining you there — that’s just the icing on the cake.

Nick: All true.

Sharon: So then help me understand why you would consider going back.

Nick: No, no, no. I’m not making any moves right now, alright? This is just two people talking about some very nonspecific ideas in some broad terms.

Sharon: Understood.

Nick: Hypothetically speaking, if I had stayed at the company, I would have been in a much better position to help protect my sister’s ceo seat. I also would have been able to do a lot more in regards to preventing my dad from pitting victoria against adam, while also supporting my mother.

Sharon: Because you are the voice of reason in the family trying to find some balance.

Nick: Well, I’ve tried my best. I’ve certainly made a lot of mistakes. But I think everybody in the family knows that I mean well and that my priorities are straight when it comes to their personal lives, as well as the company. You know, the irony is that I’m in this position of neutrality because I’ve been able to keep so much distance from the company for so long.

Sharon: Before you take this any further, I think that you just need to ask yourself one question. At this point in your life, would you feel more satisfied taking a larger role in newman or maintaining the distance that has served you so well until now?

Allie: Thank you, sir.

Noah: Allie, before we go in, I — I wanted to apologize for making you feel uncomfortable earlier. I hate that I got so worked up in front of diane.

Allie: No, no, you have nothing to apologize for.

Noah: Yes, I do. I thought that I had accepted diane being back in town. I mean, I was perfectly civil before. I-I don’t know. Something about seeing her today just… all the stuff she put my family through just came flooding back in. And she caused a lot of chaos in this town before she died. Or before she disappeared, rather. And now she’s causing even more by showing her face around here again.

Allie: Well, but you can’t really blame her for the latter, right? I mean, that’s not really her fault.

Noah: Yeah, allie, I can’t help but wonder — what makes you think she deserves a second chance when you don’t even really know what she did?

Phyllis: Let’s press the reset button here. This is — I mean, you think I’m insincere? Really? I mean, you — you know me better than anyone. Look in my eyes. Don’t you see the truth?

Jack: Yes, I look in your eyes and I see the truth. That’s not the point.

Phyllis: What am I missing?

Jack: The very root of the whole thing, why it is you acted the way you did to begin with. This isn’t new. You keep telling me about growth and maturity. Phyllis, look back over the last few years at your relationship with men. It has been a disaster.

Phyllis: [ Scoffs ]

Phyllis: Uh, wow, that’s low.

Jack: No, I — red, listen to me. Think about it. Billy, nick, me. The last time you were with nick, you couldn’t have been happier. Things were going great. And then they went south, and you turned to me. And then just when it seemed we were gonna be together, in a matter of days you sabotaged any potential there was.

Phyllis: Because of diane. And I let it go.

Jack: I know you’re gonna try to let it go. You’ve tried to break the pattern in the past. Maybe it’s not a pattern. Maybe it’s just who you are. It just seems to me, whoever you’re with, however long you’re with them… it’s never enough.

Mariah: Hi! How’d the appointment go?

[ Door closes ]

Tessa: Not like I expected.

Some people have

minor joint pain,

Mariah: What happened?

Tessa: Well, I thought the sore throat thing was no big deal, but, um, I was wrong. My doctor said the preliminary diagnosis is vocal-chord nodules.

Mariah: What? I mean, those are really serious, aren’t they?

Tessa: Yeah. He’s sending me to a specialist for a confirmation and treatment options, but worst-case scenario is surgery.

Mariah: Oh, my god. Tessa, I am so sorry.

Tessa: [ Voice breaking ] I mean, this could take me out of the summer tour. I mean, you know how important this is to my career. But most importantly, I’m worried about my voice long term. I just — I don’t know what I’m gonna do if I can’t s–

Mariah: Okay. Slow down. Alright? You don’t even have a full diagnosis yet. So, we’ll go to the specialist, we’ll see what needs to be done to treat this, and we’ll just take it one step at a time, alright?

Tessa: Alright. I’m just — I’m — I’m — I’m really scared.

Mariah: I know. But let’s look at it this way. You know, if you need some time off or you need to get surgery or treatment of any kind… it’s better to know now for all of the future tours. Because I believe with all of my heart you are going to be singing and you are gonna be selling out tours for years and years to come. Come here.

Nick: You always know how to get right to the heart of the matter.

Sharon: That’s my job. And I think that if you look inside and you dig deep, you will find the answer. You’ll know what to do.

Nick: Easy, right?

Sharon: Well, I wouldn’t go that far, but trust your instincts. I believe in you, and I support you 100%.

Nick: Well, I really appreciate your wisdom.

[ Cellphone ringing ] Sorry. Hey. Uh, okay. Can it wait? Alright. I’m on my way. It’s my dad.

Sharon: What did he want?

Nick: He wouldn’t say. He just said that it can’t wait.

Allie: Look, noah, I get that I’m coming from a completely different place, right? I have no history with diane, and all I know is that she made this town very angry in her past. She basically admitted that herself. So, I understand why you feel so strongly about her.

Noah: Good. That’s a hard thing to forget. I can’t just pretend like nothing happened.

Allie: No, and I would never try to tell you to do that. But I do believe that forgiveness is important. I mean, look at what happened between my dad and my grandfather. It would have changed so much for all of us if my dad just found a way to reach out and forgive jack.

Noah: Yeah, your life would have been a lot different.

Allie: So different. My whole family would have been in my life from the very beginning. When my dad died, it wouldn’t just have been me by his bedside. I think without forgiveness and trust, life can be really lonely. I didn’t realize that before, but I’m starting to get it now.

Noah: Well, that is a very healthy and optimistic way to look at things.

Allie: Well, I highly recommend it.

Diane: Harrison, stay where i can see you! I love watching you play!

[ Chuckles ]

[ Breathes deeply ] It’s all I’ve ever wanted.

Diane: Thank you for understanding how much kyle means to me. He’s the biggest part of my heart. And I have ached for him every day since I left.

Allie: What exactly do you hope will happen if you do see kyle, face-to-face?

Diane: [ Sighs ] I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about that. Little daydreams that I have. I try to keep the hopes small so as not to tempt fate.

Allie: And what are the hopes if you dream bigger?

Diane: Then I’m his mother again. In every way. I — I’m part of his life. Part of his days. I dote on his child. We have sunday breakfast in the abbott dining room.

Allie: And everyone accepts you being there.

Diane: The family you’re part of is big and loving when they let you in. And there is no place better in the world. You’ll see. It’ll happen.

Diane: [ Breathes deeply ]

[ Chuckles ]

Phyllis: Uh… you cannot mean what you just said to me.

Jack: I do mean it. Why do you constantly insist on getting in your own way? Why is it you can never fully embrace happiness, fulfillment? For you, it is — it is always about the wanting, the chase… never about actually having it.

[ Door slams ]

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

Kyle: Summer and I discussed it, and we would like to offer you a job in the P.R. Department of the new marchetti.

Billy: I guess I’ve just forgotten how well you used to know me.

Michael: We still got it.

Lauren: [ Laughs ] Baby, we never lost it.

Victor: Whatever venteur ashland and victoria are about to embark on, it’s gonna hit a brick wall.

Marlena: Chad… I just spoke to belle.

[Sighs] She said that you had told the children about abigail.

[Knocking at door]

Rafe: Yeah?

Nicole: Hi.

Rafe: Hey.

Nicole: Sorry to interrupt.

Rafe: No.

Nicole: I was just wondering if you had any luck on abigail’s case, and to bring you some sustenance, of course.

Rafe: Thank you. I could definitely use it. And no, I’m just poring over these photos again and again, just…wanna see if I’ve missed anything. But, uh, so far, no. Haven’t been able to zero in on a suspect.

Sami: He has to know there’s no way I’d stay married to a man who lied to me about kidnapping me.

[Knocking at door]

Kate: Well, what the hell happened here?

Ej: So shall we?

Belle: I thought you’d never ask.

[Doorbell rings] Ignore it.

Ej: It could be the police. Maybe they made some progress with the investigation.

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”

[Soft orchestration]

Kate: This looks like a room in high school.

Lucas: Yeah, yeah, not quite.

Kate: I assume you were looking for something.

Lucas: Yeah, I, um, I heard that abigail’s killer may have taken some jewelry from her room.

Kate: Thank god. And you just thought that maybe that it was in here?

Lucas: I hoped not. But I couldn’t find it anywhere. So now I’m thinking–I’m hoping that maybe I didn’t do it.

Kate: Oh, god, lucas. I really wish we could base that on a lot more than just an absence of jewelry.

[Sighs] You can’t remember anything about that night?

Lucas: No, unfortunately, I can’T. But the rumor is, whoever killed abigail took the jewelry.

Kate: Okay, which you don’t have.

Lucas: Right, right. So that’s what I’m thinking, you know? If it wasn’t me, gotta be somebody else.

Kate: Okay. Well, let’s hope.

Lucas: I’m gonna do more than hope. I have to stay positive through this. It’s the only way I can stay sane. Yeah, look at this. Speaking of positive, look. Ow, ow!

[Grunts] Look.

Kate: Oh, my god. Is that what I think it is?

Lucas: Yeah. I’m finally gonna propose to sami.

Sami: I need to talk to you.

Ej: Samantha…

Sami: Belle, what are you doing here?

Ej: Your sister is my attorney. We were just discussing some legal matters.

Sami: Oh, fantastic. What trouble have you gotten yourself into this time?

Belle: Ej hasn’t done anything, sami.

Sami: Really? Are you kidding me right now? Of course he has. Nobody just has their lawyer hanging around for no good reason. As much as I hate to admit it, I am still his wife. So I have a right to know what mess you’ve gotten yourself mixed up in this time.

Belle: He hasn’t, sami. Um, the truth is, I am staying here. I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Kate: So sami’s back in town?

Lucas: Yeah, yeah, she got back a little while ago.

Kate: Where is she right now?

Lucas: She went to go see ej to get him to sign the divorce papers.

Kate: And you were okay with that?

Lucas: No, I wasn’T. Of course not.

Kate: Well, then why didn’t you stop her?

Lucas: I tried to stop her. I told her to let the lawyers handle it. But she wouldn’t listen to me. She was adamant–she wanted ej to sign the papers today. I mean, I’m not happy at the fact that they’re both alone together right now. But you know what? It’s okay. It’s okay if it means that she’s finally through with that bastard once and for all. I’m good.

Kate: [Scoffs] Well, that’s assuming that he signs those divorce papers. Lucas, when has he ever, ever done anything of benefit to you? What if he decides, “no, instead of signing these, I’m gonna convince sami that I’m innocent of her kidnapping”? You’re not a little worried that he might point his finger at you?

Sami: So let me get this straight–you and shawn are separated, and jan spears had his baby? Kay, I understand why you don’t wanna stay with shawn, but why aren’t you staying with mom?

Belle: Oh, I was until mom decided to be jan’s therapist. So couldn’t really stay there anymore.

Sami: Of course she is. Got it. So there’s no room in any hotel in town? You had to bunk in with your client? That’s your only option?

Ej: Actually, belle’s more than just my attorney.

Roman: A lot on your mind, huh? Why do I get the feeling this has something to do with nicole? And look, if you’re hidin’ out up here because of what kate said, that’s just kate being kate. Look, I am sorry that she put you on the spot.

Eric: Yeah, I get the feeling she’s not.

Roman: Yeah, no. I’ll never understand why she just loves stirring up trouble. If it were an olympic sport, she would definitely take the gold.

Eric: Nice to hear she has a hobby.

Roman: Yeah. I just wish it were more like, you know, learning a second language or gardening. And though it is not a hobby of mine to stir up trouble, you are my son, so I do think I am justified in wanting to know–

Eric: What’s going on with nicole and me.

Roman: Care to share?

Nicole: It must be so hard working on this case while you’re still grieving abigail.

Rafe: It is, yeah. But also, whoever did this left two children without a mother. So I am more than motivated to get the son of a bitch and make him pay. And, uh, I’m not gonna be able to live with myself if I don’t get this maniac off the streets.

Nicole: And you will. I have every bit of faith in you.

Rafe: Thank you. Okay, enough about me.

[Chuckles] How was your day? Hopefully, less eventful than mine. What’s going on at basic black?

Nicole: Um, actually, I didn’t come from the office.

Rafe: No?

Nicole: No.

Rafe: Had a meeting?

Nicole: Well, uh, I was lucky. I went to abe’s impromptu wedding. I got to spend the day celebrating life and love.

Chad: Yeah, I read a few articles, um, about how to tell a child that a parent has died. Yeah, I tried to use some of that advice, but it all went out the window as soon as I sat down and I looked at their little faces.

Marlena: Of course it did. Look, I know a few things about you. Among those things are that you are a fabulous dad, and I’m sure you’d do the very best you could for them.

Chad: Yeah, I don’t know about that, I, uh– you know, I just–I just said all the, you know, the usual cliché things, like, “mom had to go to heaven,” and “even though, you know, she’s not gonna be here on earth anymore, she’ll always be in your heart.”



Marlena: Chad… yes, it’s a cliché. But it’s also very true. I think you said the right thing.

Chad: I don’t know. I mean, thomas gets it. Charlotte, she just kept saying, “when’s mom coming back?” And I had to tell her, “mom isn’t coming back. She’s not coming back.” Now, I don’t know how the hell I’m supposed to expect her to understand it when I don’t understand it myself.

When moderate to severe

ulcerative colitis persists…

Rafe: So abe and paulina finally tied the knot? That’s great news.

Nicole: Yeah, it was spur of the moment. Otherwise, I would’ve asked you to be my plus one.

Rafe: Oh, I–no, I couldn’t have gone anyway. I mean, wouldn’t have felt right taking time off from work, but I’m glad that you went to support them.

Nicole: Yeah, so am I. But I have to say, I mean, the ceremony was fine, but the reception got cut short– I mean, lani confessing to having shot tr…

Rafe: Yeah, I just got the paperwork about lani confessing to killing tr. Didn’t realize she did it in the middle of the reception, though.

Nicole: Yeah, everything came to a screeching halt as you can imagine.

Rafe: Yeah, I’ll bet. And you probably didn’t get anything to eat, and from the size of that bag, you brought enough for two of us. So why don’t you join me?

Nicole: Um, actually, I did have lunch. I ended up at the pub.

Rafe: Oh, you did?

Nicole: Mm-hmm.

Rafe: By yourself?

Nicole: No, I–I ate with roman and kate and eric.

Rafe: Huh.

Eric: Great. You wanna talk about nicole too.

Roman: Look, I don’t want to pry. But you two obviously have a history together, and believe me, I know how much it hurt you when you found out nicole slept with xander. But now that some time has passed…

Eric: What? Go ahead, finish the sentence.

Roman: Well, I just wondered if maybe two of you might be able to work things out.

Eric: Work things out?

Roman: Mm-hmm.

Eric: You make it sound like it’s so easy. Nicole, she’s moved on. She’s with rafe now, and apparently very much in love. Not to mention, they’re actually engaged to get married.

Roman: They’re not married yet.

Lucas: Of course I’m worried about ej pointing the finger at me. But I would’ve needed a physical barrier in the doorway to stop sami from going over there.

Kate: What, are you kidding? You can’t stop a woman on crutches from leaving you? Because if that’s true, it doesn’t bode well for your future together, believe me.

Lucas: You know, she can use those crutches as weapons. But it’s not the point. The point is, even if I managed to stop hurricane sami from blowing over to ej, she would’ve–she would’ve realized that it would’ve made me look suspicious. Don’t you understand that? She would’ve wondered why I care what ej says. Well, all the more reason to think it’s true if that happens.

Kate: Okay, I see your point.

Lucas: You see, this way– this way she knows, sami knows that I’m not threatened by anything that ej says. But I’m just hoping that, you know, whatever he does say, she’s not gonna take much stock into it, because today, I’m gonna propose to her.

Kate: Okay, um, about that…

Lucas: What, what?

Kate: Do you really think this is the right time to push the wedding?

Sami: What exactly do you mean that she’s more than just your attorney?

Ej: We’ve become friends. Belle’s been a great support to me since she came to stay here– especially the night of abigail’s murder.

Sami: You were here when that happened?

Chad: Help! Somebody help!

Belle: What happened?

Ej: What the hell?

Belle: I was, yeah. We tried to do everything we could, and–so chad obviously didn’t want the kids in the house.

Sami: Oh, my god, of course not.

Ej: So we–belle and I–got them out of the house, and took them to marlena and john’S.

Belle: Yeah. Chad’s there with them now. He just told them that their mother died.

Ej: [Sighs]

Marlena: Chad, I’ve had a few patients over the years that have had to tell a child that a parent wasn’t coming home, and what I can tell you is, there is no right or wrong way to do that, and I would never presume to tell you how to tell your children. What I do know is that you are a kind, intuitive man… and you’re a wonderful father… and thank god they have you.

Chad: Thank god I have them.

Marlena: Would you like me to talk to them?

Chad: Yeah, if you wouldn’t mind.

Marlena: I wouldn’t mind. I’d be very glad to do whatever I can to help.

Chad: [Sniffles] I think, um–I think they’re in with john right now. Jack and jennifer brought over a little race car track, so they’re probably playing with that right about now.

Marlena: Oh–

John: Hey, sweetheart. I didn’t know you were home.

Marlena: Yeah. I hear there’s some racing going on in the other room.

John: Mm, yeah. Thomas and charlotte are on lap 500 of the dimera grand prix.


Marlena: Sounds like you’re ready for a pit stop.

John: Mm.

Marlena: Why don’t I, um– I’ll take a few rounds.

Chad: Thank you.

Marlena: Of course. Of course.

Sami: No matter how I may feel about the dearly departed, abby–my heart breaks for those kids. I know what it’s like to have to tell your kid that their parent isn’t coming home, and face a future raising your children alone, which is actually reminding me of why I’m here. I have divorce papers, ej, and I would like you to sign them.

Only daisy cottage cheese will do

John: Been a long day, kid. Get you a beer?

Chad: No, thank you. I should probably stay present for the kids.

John: Yeah, I understand that. Chad… I know that it’s not always helpful to tell someone who’s suffering that they’ve been through a similar situation. I know that, um–I actually used to resent it when people did that to me. I don’t know, I just kind of felt like that maybe they were being dismissive of my pain, you know?

Chad: No, I would never think that about you, john, and I know that you went through something similar– losing your wife.

John: Isabella, yeah.

John: Did you know we had just gotten married? Just–just had a baby–brady– when we found out that she was sick–cancer, and at the end of our fight, I took her to venice, and she died in my arms.

Chad: How–how do you go on?

John: Well, you know, initially, I just knew that I had to be there for brady. I mean, it’s not like I was ever gonna stop missing isabella. That was never gonna happen. But, you know, slowly, my life started to fill up–obviously, bill, doc, and her kids– and now, when I remember isabella, I just think about how lucky I was to have had her before I had to say goodbye.

Chad: See, that’s the difference, though. You got to say goodbye. I never did.

Ej: It’s not that I can’t wait to sever our marital bond, samantha. But there’s a lot going on right now. Abigail’s death, the birth of shawn’s baby–

Sami: Wait, wait, wait. Sorry, what does shawn’s baby have to do with whether or not you sign these papers today?

Ej: My point is that it’s obvious I have a lot on my plate. So maybe we could table this for the moment? There’s no pressing need to finalize the divorce right now.

Sami: Yes, actually, there is. Lucas and I are getting married again.

Lucas: Are you saying i shouldn’t ask sami to marry me?

Kate: No. No, I’m not saying that. I’m just saying that you have a lot going on right now, and you might not be able to focus on the wedding when you’re worrying about whether your bride is going to find out that you were the one behind her kidnapping.

Lucas: What, is this your way of suggesting I tell sami the truth?

Kate: No, it’s my way of suggesting that you get rid of this debilitating stress. You’ve already blown your sobriety to hell, lucas.

Lucas: You know what? There’s not gonna be any more stress. As soon as I marry sami, the stress will be gone! I mean, there’ll be stress, but it’ll be a different kind of stress–it’ll go away!

Kate: I know you know better than this. You know better than to pin your emotional well-being on sami brady. Lucas, look at your brother. Look at philip. He allowed himself to be consumed with his feelings for chloe. Did it make him happy? No. It didn’t relieve his stress. All it did was release this– this terrible stream of dark impulses.

Lucas: So you’re comparing me to philip? You think I’m gonna snap, right? You think I’m gonna end up in a mental institution like my brother?

Kate: Lucas, stop, don’T. Don’T. Philip did not snap. He had issues. He had issues that he needed to get help for.

Lucas: Issues that caused him to fake his own death.

Kate: I’m just so– I’m worried.

Lucas: Stop saying that! Stop saying you’re worried about me, okay? You have no reason to be worried about me! I would never do anything to abigail! I would never–I would never k– I can’t even say it. She’s my niece. I would never do anything wrong. I would never hurt her like that. I respect her! I loved her! She was a great mother! And to think I had anything to do with her death– I couldn’t go on.

Kate: Oh…

Lucas: I’m telling you right now, I couldn’t go on.

[Dramatic music]

Trelegy for copd.

Kate: Honey, I know how hard this is for you, okay?

Lucas: Especially since i feel ashamed about what I did. I feel horrible about kidnapping sami. But, you know what? She’s never gonna find out that I kidnapped her. She won’t–she won’T. It’ll be a whole new chapter in my life–you know, in our lives.

Kate: Mm.

Lucas: And I know I can’t take it back. I can’t take back what I did, but I can promise to be the best husband I can possibly be. I mean, that’d be a good way to make it up to her, right?

Kate: Yeah, yes, yes, yes, yes. Yeah, no, honey, I want that for you. I want that for you.

Lucas: [Sniffling]

Kate: Your happiness means everything to me, lucas.

Lucas: Sami means everything to me.

Kate: I know, I know.

Lucas: So does that mean I have your blessing?

Kate: You have my blessing, yes. You have my undying support, and you’re gonna need it. Believe me. Baby, I love you. I love you so much.

Lucas: I love you too.

Kate: Okay. Okay. I’m sorry. You take care of yourself, please, okay?

Lucas: Yeah, I will, I will.

Kate: Okay.

Lucas: [Sighs]

Ej: [Scoffs] So this is what you really want? To spend the rest of your days married to your very own kidnapper?

Sami: [Scoffs] Actually, I’m divorcing him.

Ej: My conviction was overturned.

Sami: Oh, please. That doesn’t prove that you were innocent.

Ej: Oh, samantha, when are you going to wake up and see what’s staring you right in the face?

Sami: You’re staring me right in the face with your crazy conspiracy theories about lucas. Listen, we can all see that you’re just doing that to deflect from your own guilt. You’re the psychopath who kidnapped me and then lied to me about it.

Belle: Sami, I think you’re wrong.

Sami: Of course you do. You’re his lawyer. You’re the one who got him off of the charges.

Belle: Ej was framed by a very powerful force.

Sami: Yes, of course, old scratch at it again. But all he did was make sure that a guilty man was sentenced to prison. In fact, it was the one time he was on the side of the angels.

Ej: Samantha, you have to see reason.

Sami: No, I don’T. I don’t have to see anything. What I know for sure–no one will ever change my mind– you are the one who kidnapped me.

Eric: Dad, I am not about to meddle in nicole’s relationship.

Roman: Nobody’s saying you should do that, okay? I’m just saying you need to make a decision about what you want–

Eric: Dad, I’ve already made my decision.

Roman: You sure about that? Because from what I can tell, you’re still thinking things over. Maybe you need to take a page from sami’s book–broken legs, broken planes–nothing comes between that girl and whatever she wants, and look, okay? Don’t get me wrong. I like rafe a lot. He is a good guy–a really good guy and a really good friend. But that doesn’t mean he is who nicole’s supposed to be with.

Eric: Nicole and I have already had our chance, and you see how that ended up?

Roman: Yeah, well, rafe and nicole had their chance to get married too, and they didn’T. Okay, now they postponed the wedding because rafe is leading the investigation into abigail’s death.

Eric: Which means he has his priorities in order.

Roman: Which also means that if you still have feelings for nicole, you got time to do something about it, and if it were me, I wouldn’t wanna miss the chance to say something– to talk to her about it, because I wouldn’t wanna regret it later down the road because I didn’T.

Rafe: Well, I think it’s great that abe and paulina grabbed the opportunity to get married when they could, because…you know, with lani confessing, you never know when life can change in an instant.

Nicole: I know. Life is uncertain. That is for sure. But our situation is nothing like abe and paulina’s, and, like, you’re under enough pressure as it is to get this case solved. So I don’t want you to feel like you have to make big plans for our wedding.

Rafe: Well, I’m definitely not feeling the pressure about that. Or is this about something else?

Nicole: Well, rafe and i plan on rescheduling our wedding soon.

Kate: Hmm, well, that wasn’t what I was getting at.

John: What are you getting at?

Kate: Well, eric, I’m sure you believe in signs.

Eric: Yeah, signs?

Kate: Yeah–you came back to salem, right? You were forced out of the priesthood, and then nicole postponed her wedding.

Roman: Kate, what are you doing?

Kate: I’m asking questions.

Roman: No, you’re not. You’re stirring the pot. We talked about this. It’s none of our business.

Rafe: Nicole, what are you saying? Are you avoiding making wedding plans because you don’t want to get married?

Chad: I never got to take abby to venice or any of the other places that we wanted to go. Either she couldn’t get away or I couldn’t get away or the kids were in school. Though, we always just put it off. You know, thinking about it, we had all this time. You know, the last conversation we had was about taking the– taking our kids to a movie, and taking that trip to boston to go see jack. You know, surprise him for his birthday. She wanted to go at night. But…

John: But?

Chad: It just seemed so last-minute, you know? And I just thought it would’ve been too much work to get the kids together and get to the airport. So I said–so I said why don’t we go the next morning? And she s–agreed. She said, “yeah, you know, what difference would a day make?”

[Chuckles] Well, you know, it turns out that it makes all the difference in the world.


[ Screaming ]

Chad: If we had gone to boston that night, abby would still be alive.

[Sniffles] I took the–I–I took the kids to a movie, and I left her alone.

John: No, no, no, chad, you didn’t have any idea what was gonna happen. There’s no way you could’ve known what was gonna happen. You just said that you were gonna take the kids to the movies that night?

Chad: Yeah, I was with abby in our room. I was getting ready before i went to go–I went to go get the kids.


John: Before you left… what was the last thing you said to each other?

Chad: [Sighs]

[Laughs] She told me that she loved me.


[Sniffles] And I told her that i loved her too.

John: Mm-hmm.

Chad: I mean, the way that she looked at me and said it, it melts my heart, I mean, that smile… everything about her, I just, I– I took for granted.

John: What do you think you took for granted?

Chad: The amount of time that I would have with her.

[Sniffles] If I had only known, I wouldn’t have–I wouldn’t have wasted so much–so much time.

John: What do you think you wasted time on?

Chad: [Sniffles] Doing anything but loving her, and letting–letting her know how–how–how much she meant to me, and that she was my everything–telling her that she was my everything.

John: She knew. She knew, kid.

Chad: [Sobbing]

Ej: Fine, you want to be an idiot? Be my guest.

Sami: Oh. Thanks.

Ej: Satisfied?

Sami: Yes. Actually, I am. It’s exactly what I wanted. So belle, word of warning if you plan on staying in this house much longer: Just make sure you don’t get chained up in the basement. No, no, I’ll get the door myself, thanks. You’re gonna have to close it, though.

Ej: Okay. Like pulsing, electric shocks,

Marlena: I hope I’m not interrupting.

Chad: No, you’re not. Did you talk to ’em?

Marlena: I did. Thomas is pretty focused on that race car set.

Chad: [Chuckles] And charlotte?

Marlena: She asked me if it were true. She asked me if her mommy had died. I told her it was true, and she cried, and I rocked her and held her, and a moment later, she was back in denial, said she knew her mommy was going to be coming home.

Chad: Well, I should probably go get–

Marlena: Chad.

[Sighs] Look, they’re playing so well, and they’re distracted, and it’s nearly their bedtime. Why don’t you let them stay with us one more night?

Chad: Are you sure?

John: Yeah, yeah, absolutely. We love those kids.

Chad: [Chuckles] Thank you.

Marlena: Of course. Chad. I think you should stay as well.

Chad: No, I’m not–I don’t want to impose.

John: You’re not an imposition, you know that.

Marlena: No, you’re not. No, we would love to have you.

Chad: [Stammers] Thank you–okay. Thank you. That would be good.

Nicole: Eric.

Eric: Nicole, I–

Nicole: What are you doing here?

Eric: I came by because I wanted to ask you something.

Nicole: Well, can it wait? I’m sorry you came all the way over here, but it’s not a really good time, so…

Eric: Yeah, sure. Is everything okay?

Rafe: Hey! I got champagne. Hey, eric.

Eric: Rafe. Champagne? You guys look like you’re gonna celebrate something.

Rafe: Well, as a matter of fact, we are.

Nicole: [Giggles] We got married.

Eric: Married? Marri–married?

Rafe: Mm-hmm.

Eric: When?

Rafe: Yeah, we just snuck in right under the wire.

Nicole: Yeah, we just came from the courthouse.

Eric: Yeah, that’s great.

[Chuckles] Congratulations.

Rafe: Thank you.

Eric: Yeah, well, I’ll leave the two of you to celebrate your wedding night.

Rafe: Right.

[Both laugh]

Lucas: How’d it go?

Sami: Success!

Lucas: Yeah?

Sami: Yup!

Lucas: He signed ’em?

Sami: Oh, yeah, I got him to sign the papers.

Lucas: Perfect. Well, in that case…

[Hums] I had a whole big speech planned, but considering how long it took us to get to this point, I figured I’d just cut to the chase.

[Sighing] Samantha gene brady, will you marry me again?

Sami: [Laughs] Yes, lucas.

Lucas: Yes?

Sami: I will. You want to put it on?

Lucas: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Let me do that. Ow.

Sami: Ooh, watch your hand.

Lucas: That’s all right. That’s all right.

Sami: Aw…

Lucas: It fits. It fits perfect.

Sami: Just like you.

[Laughs] Yay!

Ej: Now that I’ve signed those blasted divorce papers, I suppose all that’s left is for samantha to file them, and then–

Belle: And then you’ll be divorced.

Ej: And she’s lucas’ problem. I could–I could almost pity him. So where were we?

Belle: No. Hold on a second. What are you doin’?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Ridge: Well, this is a pleasant surprise. Look how pretty you are.

[ Katie laughs ] Thought I’d run into brooke, and I see you instead. Hi.

Katie: Oh, nice to see you as well.U missed brooke. She has an appointment.

Ridge: Mm.

Katie: So, I’m assuming you’re going to the wedding.

Ridge: The wedding? Yeah. You heard.

Katie: Yeah, barely. Hope told me that carter and paris are getting married, and I didn’t even realize they were dating, much less getting married.

Ridge: Yeah, it’s all happening pretty quickly.

Katie: Hope seemed to have her reservations, but she said she was going to the wedding to support paris. So, I’m assuming you’re going to support carter.

Ridge: Yeah, he asked me to go, so, uh, I’m going to go.

Katie: Are you okay? You seem a little out of sorts.

Ridge: This whole thing, it– none of it makes sense to me. This whole wedding is weird.

Katie: You’re worried about carter? Well, that makes sense. I mean, it wasn’t so long ago that paris was dating zende, and carter was sleeping with quinn.

Eric: All right, I’m off. I’ll see you later this afternoon.

Quinn: Oh, I was hoping we would have lunch together.

Eric: Uh, no, not today. I’m sorry, honey. Another time.

Quinn: Oh! Maybe, I should take up pickleball. Or better yet, maybe you can teach me.

Eric: Haha, all right. Maybe I will. I thought maybe you’d be going to carter and paris’ wedding today. I’m not going to go, because I don’t want to make it awkward for zende.

Quinn: Oh, no, no, no, no. I’m not– I’m not going to the wedding. No, I– I don’t think carter would want me there anyway. Eric: Why? Because of your disapproval of how quickly he’s marrying paris?

Quinn: Oh, we don’t see eye to eye on the subject, but I just– I– I truly hope he finds what he’s looking for.

Carter: I know this wedding’s very last minute, but I want it to be special. I want the whole theme to be elegant, refined, perfect. Wonderful. Thank you very much. Bye. What?

Paris: I know! It’s bad luck to see each other on wedding day, but I’m just so excited, I couldn’t stay away.

[ Carter chuckles ]

Ridge: Well it’s interesting you’d bring that up.

Katie: What?

Ridge: Quinn and carter. The affair.

Katie: Oh, yeah. What a mess that was. Thank god that terrible chapter is over.

Ridge: Not sure that it is.

[ Door knocking]

Donna: Hello? Hi. Hey, you two! My gosh, you look so beautiful. So handsome!

Ridge: Thank you!

Donna: Wow. Where is brooke? Is she here?

Katie: Oh, she’s at an appointment.

Donna: Oh. Okay. Well. Today’s a big day, huh? Your best friend’s getting married.

Ridge: Yeah, that’s today.

Donna: You look amazing. Are you going to the wedding?

Donna: Oh, no, no, no. Um, I have a, uh, an engagement.

Katie: An engagement? Huh? So, does this engagement involve someone special?

Quinn: I don’t want to talk about carter. I– I was hoping I’d get to spend the day with you. Maybe we can make dinner plans.

Eric: No, I don’t think so. Honey, I’m sorry. May– maybe another time, but I got to go. I don’t want to be late for my meeting at the club.

Quinn: Me– meeting? I thought you were going to play pickleball.

Eric: I am. That’s what I meant.

Quinn: Huh. Look, uh, eric, I– I know, I know you care about your health and– and fitness as much as I do. Uh, but I miss you. And I– I- I miss us. And I know it’s– it’s obviously going to take more time for us to get back to the way we were. But I just want you to know that, um, I don’t take your forgiveness lightly. Your loyalty and commitment mean– they mean everything to me. I– I know I have to share you with pickleball, but I’m glad at least I’m the one and only woman in your life.

Paris: I’ve never been happier. You’re the dream I never realized I wanted. So how is everything going?

Carter: We’re getting there. We’re getting there. Have you spoken to zende yet?

Paris: No, not yet.

Carter: Maybe it’s for the best.

Paris: No. But he’s our friend. And I really want him to be there, considering… and– and my mom.

Carter: Any word from her?

Paris: No, not yet. I really wish she was supporting us, but I’m not going to let this get in the way of the best day of our life.

[ Both giggling ] (Vo) red lobster’s seafood summerfest is fire!

Katie: You are seeing someone. I can see it all over you.

Donna: Okay, fine. Yes, I’m seeing someone. And yes, he’S… very special to me.

Katie: Well, I will try not to pry. But I’m really happy for you. I haven’t seen you look this radiant in a long time.

Donna: Well, you know, he makes me happy, speaking of which, actually, I’m running a little late. I– I’m about to meet him. So tell brooke I said hi, okay? See you two!

[ Katie giggling ]

Katie: I have not seen her this happy since she was with eric.

Ridge: And eric hasn’t been happy in a long time.

Katie: What is going on with you? You just seem like something’s weighing you down. What is it?

Carter: Charlie, man. Thanks again for agreeing to marry paris and me. I know it’s very short notice.

Charlie: Wha– come, come, come on, come on. No thanks necessary, carter, you know. Look, you can’t officiate your own wedding, you know, “do you? I mean, do I take paris?”

Carter: I don’t think it would work out too well.

Charlie: All right. Listen, I am more than happy to take off my security hat, and put on my minister hat. Metaphorically, of course. I mean, I don’t really wear a hat. I just– I got a frock that’s back from the cleaners, but, uh, regardless. Listen, with sheila on the lam, I promise you that I will keep one, maybe both eyes, on that door at all times. But don’t worry. I mean, ridge has already hired extra security. I want this day to be really special for you. So you and paris can start the rest of your lives together.

Paris: Hey.

Zende: Hey.

Paris: Are you busy?

Zende: No, I, um, I can always make time for you, I was just finishing up this design.

Both: So–

Paris: You go first.

Zende: I, um, I heard the news. Carter proposed. Your mom told me.

Paris: She probably didn’t have too many good things to say.

Zende: That– that is an understatement. But I, um, I’m really happy for you. Congratulations.

Paris: Thank you. That means a lot. We’re actually getting married today.

Zende: Uh, today?

Paris: Yeah. Yeah. I– I know that it’s really sudden, but that’s what we want. And we also really want you to be there. It would mean the world to me.

Quinn: Thank you so much for joining me for lunch.

Bridget: Of course.

Quinn: Your father doesn’t know that I’m at the club, but I’m telling you, it gives me peace of mind knowing that you’re here in case his heart rate spikes again.

Bridget: Oh, okay, um, quinn, you know you’re going to have to tell him at some point about this health ring and all of your concerns.

Quinn: Yes, I know. I know. I will, and I know you probably hate lying to him as much as I do. I– I’m just afraid that he– he’s not going to tell me something’s wrong until it’s too late.

Bridget: Well, that’s my dad for you. He’s thinking and caring about everyone else and just often neglects himself.

Quinn: Exactly. I mean, your father has cared for and loved me in ways I can’t even articulate.

Bridget: Mm hm.

Quinn: His loyalty. His commitment.

[ Sighing ] I would– I would just, I would do anything for my husband.

Eric: Donna. You look so beautiful.

Donna: Thank you. I– I wasn’t sure if you wanted to see me. I mean, I know you’ve been feeling guilty and– and now with hope, knowing about us–

Eric: No, I shouldn’T. I shouldn’t be doing this. But I can’t stay away from you. Everything you are brings such light and– and happiness to my life. How can I stay away? My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…

Katie: Okay. Tell me what’s going on.

Ridge: I don’t know what’s going– and, I have reservations about carter and this wedding.

Katie: Well, yeah, it seems to have happened really fast. I mean, he– must love paris a lot.

Ridge: Yeah.

[ Throat clearing ]

Katie: Ridge, what is it? What’s wrong?

Ridge: He’s not– he’s not running to paris. He’s running away from quinn, and the feelings he has.

Carter: Charlie. I really appreciate your help.

Charlie: Oh forget about it. Come on. Oh, by the way, um, pammy sends her best. She wishes she could be here for the decoration and the catering and stuff, but, alas, she had to go on her knitting retreat.

[ Throat clearing ] But, anyway, we want this day to be really special for you. I mean, after all, pammy and I know all about true love.

Zende: You want me to come to your wedding?

Paris: I do. But you know, if it’s too difficult for you, I understand.

Zende: Paris, when I said all that matters to me is your happiness, I meant it. I’ll be there.

Donna: To hear you say those words to me.

Eric: They’re all true.

Donna: And I feel the same way. I love you so much. But despite how happy you make me, I– I, I can’t help feeling guilty about it. Being with a man who wears a wedding band– oh, two rings from quinn, actually. Look at that.

Eric: You’re right. You’re right. This isn’t right. I– it’s not the man I want to be. The man who cheats on his wife, who lies to his wife. Quinn deserves more. She deserves the truth. I’m going to tell her.

Donna: What?

Eric: I love you too much. I’m not going to let you go.

Donna: Oh.

Quinn: Who knew that my husband would ever get into pickleball?

Bridget: Absolutely no one.

Quinn: Nobody.

Bridget: Have you ever played with him?

Quinn: No! No. I– I mean, I don’t even really come here to the club. You know, this is eric’s domain but I’ll tell you, he comes home energized like he’s a new man.

Server: Hi, can I get you started with something to drink?

Quinn: Uh, what’d you like?

Bridget: I’ll have an iced tea, please.

Server: Excellent choice.

Quinn: I will have the same.

Server: Okay, great.

Quinn: Oh, uh, do you know my husband, eric forrester?

Server: Yes, I know mr. Forrester well.

Quinn: Well, I’m sure you do, I mean, he’s– he’s been here quite often lately.

Server: I’ll get you those drinks.

Bridget: Thank you. Okay, quinn, I’m just going to go ahead and address the elephant in the room. I’m sure you realize that I know about your history with, um, carter.

Quinn: I’m sure you do. My mom told me that carter and paris are getting married today?

Quinn: You know, bridget, it’s– it’s not really my concern what carter does with his life. My focus is on eric. And I hope you know that I am as committed to your father as– as he is to me.

Bridget: Good.

[ Alarm ringing ]

Quinn: Oh, no. Eric’s heart rate, it’s spiking again.

Server: You, uh, ready to order?

Quinn: Uh, do you know where my husband is?

Server: Excuse me?

Quinn: Do– do you know what pickleball court eric forrester is on?

Server: Mrs. Forrester, I’m sorry but the pickleball courts are closed for resurfacing.

Bridget: What? Kids can change mis…

Katie: I can’t believe this. I mea– I spoke to carter when the whole affair with quinn happened, and he– he swore you would never go back there again.

Ridge: He did swear that. And I don’t think he has gone back there.

Katie: Why would he marry paris if he still has feelings for quinn?

Ridge: I think carter’s lost it. But let’s forget about him for one second. What about paris? She doesn’t deserve this.

Katie: You’ve got to talk to him.

Ridge: I did talk to him. I couldn’t get through to him. He’s– he’s getting married to paris today.

Carter: I can’t live

like this anymore.

But make no mistake,

I will always love you.

[ Quinn sighing ]

Quinn: I’ll always love

you too, carter.

[ Knocking on door ]

Paris: Oh.

Carter: You want all the bad luck, huh?

Paris: I just thought you should know. Zende’s coming to the wedding.

Carter: Really?

Paris: Yeah. He’s a great guy.

Carter: He really is.

Paris: Yeah. Are you okay?

Carter: Yeah. Yes, yes, of course I am. I’ve been waiting for this longer than I can remember. To build a life with someone. I’ve just been looking for it in the wrong places.

Paris: Well, now you can stop looking.

Donna: You’re leaving quinn for me? Oh.

Eric: My heart is racing. I love you. You light up my whole life.

Donna: I– I– I’ve dreamt about this, eric. I have hoped upon hopes, and–

Eric: I choose you. I choose you, if you’ll have me.

Donna: Yes, eric, yes. Yes.

Quinn: The pickleball courts are closed?

Server: Yes, ma’am.

Quinn: So then, where is he? Where’s my husband? He could be having a heart attack as we speak!

Server: Mr. Forrester has been spending time in bungalow #24.

Donna: I love you so much.

Eric: I love you, too.

[ Donna moaning ]

Quinn: Eric? Eric, are you in there? Eric, are you all right?

Eric: Quinn? Bridget? What? What are you doing here?

Quinn: Why are you in bed? What’s going on?

Quinn: No.

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Evan/Christian questions what Orpheus is talking about by saying he has another son with Jan Spears and argues that it doesn’t even make sense. Orpheus repeats that Jan Spears gave birth to Evan’s son. Evan says it can’t be. Orpheus asks if he’s saying he did not have sex with Jan, warning him that it’s a sin to tell a lie.

Jan complains to Shawn about not being able to see her baby and hold him. Shawn encourages her. Jan knows he won’t let them send her to prison without holding her baby first. Jan asks what she would ever do without him and then kisses Shawn.

EJ and Belle go to the bedroom and kiss on to the bed. EJ asks if she’s sure this is what she wants. Belle tells EJ to make love to her as they continue kissing.

Chad sits alone at John and Marlena’s until there’s a knock at the door. Chad answers to see Abigail’s brother, JJ has returned. They embrace as JJ breaks down crying that he can’t believe Abigail is really gone. JJ says he just flew in this morning with Theo and he saw Jack and Jennifer, who are doing pretty bad. Chad feels he should go see them. JJ says they are at the funeral home, making arrangements. Jack and Jennifer then arrive at the door. Jennifer hugs Chad as he cries.

Orpheus asks Evan if he remembers whether or not he slept with Jan. Evan flashes back to meeting Jan in prison. She told him that she had just lost the love of her life. Evan asked if there was anything he could do. Jan responded that there was and kissed Evan. Evan then admits to Orpheus that he did have sex with Jan. Orpheus declares that a new life was then born.

Shawn questions Jan kissing him. Jan calls it an expression of how much she loves him. Shawn reminds her that they talked about this and she knows where they stand. Jan declares that he’s the father of her baby and they belong together. Jan grabs Shawn and kisses him again. Shawn pulls away as Brady and Chloe enter the room. Brady comments that it looks like Jan has made a full recovery.

Jennifer mentions the kids sleeping peacefully. Chad says he will check on them soon and brings up that they were the funeral home and feels he should’ve done that. Jack tells Chad to be there for his children and not worry about anything else. Jennifer informs Chad that Abigail’s funeral will be the day after tomorrow and the director wanted to know if there was something they wanted her to wear. Jennifer asks if Chad wanted to pick something out. Chad cries that he doesn’t think he could do that.

EJ and Belle lay in bed together after making love. EJ says it was wonderful. Belle says the last few months made her feel really alone but not when she’s with him. EJ thinks they both want to shut out the outside world, but there’s also a real pull that has nothing to do with running away. EJ tells Belle that he wants to be with her and get to know the real her. EJ states that Belle comes across as confident and straightforward but she’s actually quite complicated. EJ says Belle is here with him now but something she’s not telling him is going on. EJ jokes that he is getting to know her. EJ asks Belle to tell him what it is and how she feels right now. Belle responds that she feels happy but also very guilty.

Jan questions what the hell Brady and Chloe are doing here and says no one asked them to come. Brady asks to speak to Shawn in private, saying it’s important. Chloe says she’ll stay and keep Jan company as Shawn exits with Brady. Jan tells Chloe that she doesn’t need company, she needs peace and calm as she is breastfeeding. Chloe tells Jan to drop the Madonna act as she knows exactly what she’s doing.

Evan tells Orpheus that he and Jan only slept together once. Orpheus tells him that once is all it takes. Evan questions how the hell Orpheus would know if he got her pregnant. Orpheus reveals that he met Jan himself not long after they were together. Orpheus flashes back to meeting Jan while cleaning in the prison and Jan told him that she was waiting on her pregnancy test results. Orpheus asked Jan who the lucky father was. Evan asks if she told him that it was him. Orpheus reveals that Jan told him that it was Detective Shawn Brady.

EJ tells Belle that he knew it. Belle assures that it’s not what she didn’t want this to happen, but she made vows and promised Shawn that she would never break them again and she has. EJ asks what about Shawn sleeping with Jan Spears, knocking her up, moving her in to Belle’s house and becoming her full time caretaker. EJ argues that Shawn vowed to stand by Belle for better or worse.

Evan questions Orpheus about Jan saying Shawn was the father. Orpheus argues that it wouldn’t be the first time in Jan’s life that she lied. Orpheus flashes back to continuing his conversation with Jan. Jan got upset when Orpheus told her that she wasn’t going to live happily ever after with Shawn until Orpheus revealed who he was. Orpheus told Jan that he knew the truth that she was trying to pass off another man’s child as Shawn’s because he knows everything that goes on in the prison walls. Jan asked if he would rat her out but Orpheus said no and that he would help her. Evan questions if Orpheus is planning on passing off his baby as Shawn’s. Orpheus clarifies that he’s not planning to as the mission is already accomplished.

Chloe tells Jan that she’s never really had a high opinion of her, but using her own child to get her hooks in to Shawn is a new low. Jan says Chloe’s opinion means nothing to her but that she’s wrong as having a baby has changed her and Shawn senses that. Jan declares that she’s sorry but she gave Shawn a son and every man wants a son. Jan remarks that it’s not her fault that Belle wasn’t up to the task.

Chad cries about having to enter the bedroom with Rafe. Jack encourages him that he doesn’t have to talk about it. Jennifer assures that she and Jack will take care of the dress. Chad thanks her as they cry. JJ and Jack step aside. Jack asks if JJ is staying with Chad which he confirms. Jack asks if JJ is okay. JJ admits he’s not. Jack says he’s not either as they hug. Jennifer tries to encourage Chad to eat and take care of himself. Jennifer tells Jack they should get this over with. Jennifer asks JJ to make sure Chad eats. Jack and Jennifer then exit together. Chad tells JJ that it’s not right that they are taking care of him. JJ says they take care of him so he can take care of his kids and they will all do whatever they can to get through this. Chad questions who would do this to them. Chad argues that it shouldn’t be like this as he keeps thinking about the fact that the person who did this is out there walking around, knowing they got away with it. JJ assures they will find out who did it and they will pay. Chad talks about Rafe not having much to go on but some stuff being stolen which could’ve been just to make it look like a robbery. Chad worries that whoever did this set out to kill Abigail. JJ brings up Gwen but Chad says she was in prison so it couldn’t have been her. Chad thought it was over and they got through all of the crap. Chad tells JJ that Abigail was happy and they were finally happy.

Jack and Jennifer go to the DiMera Mansion and slowly enter Abigail and Chad’s bedroom. Jennifer looks around the room and sees Abigail’s things then says she now understands why Chad couldn’t come back in the room. Jennifer tells Jack that she doesn’t know if she can do this.

Evan tells Orpheus to stop playing games and tell him what’s going on. Orpheus responds that he already did. Orpheus explains that he gave his word to Jan that he would help her pass off Evan’s baby as Shawn’s and that’s what he did. Orpheus flashes back to telling Jan that she was going to need his help with the paternity test, so she asked what’s in it for him. Evan says that’s a good question and also asks Orpheus what’s in it for him. Orpheus claims he’s just a romantic at heart. Evan guesses he switched the tests for Jan and now Shawn thinks Jan is giving birth to his baby. Orpheus reveals to Evan that Jan has already given birth.

Chloe tells Jan that’s a stupid and offensive thing to say, even for her. Jan declares that she and Shawn have a son together which is an unbreakable bond as God has made them a family. Chloe laughs and says God has nothing to do with it. Chloe reminds Jan that she sold her soul to the Devil. Jan tells Chloe to leave and not come back. Jan threatens to tell Shawn the horrible things that she’s said to her and says it’s not good for the baby for her to be upset. Chloe says Jan can milk the situation for all it’s worth, but deep down it’s not going to turn out any differently than her other stunts over the years. Chloe adds that Shawn will never stop loving Belle. Jan argues that he might stop forgiving Belle. Jan says she’ll always be faithful, so he’ll never have to forgive her for an indiscretion but that’s always been an issue for Belle. Jan claims she worries about Belle getting so restless when Shawn is busy elsewhere. Jan hopes Belle found someone or something to occupy the empty hours while Shawn is with her at the hospital. Chloe flashes back to Belle telling her about staying with EJ. Jan remarks that maybe Belle could knit something for the baby.

Jan tells EJ that Shawn was tricked in to sleeping with Jan, so it wasn’t adultery but this is. EJ disagrees since she and Shawn are legally separated. Belle calls that a legal technicality while she’s talking about marriage and commitment. EJ questions what marriage and commitment since Shawn caved to Jan and basically told Belle that Jan is calling the shots and she had nothing to say about it. EJ calls it abandonment and points out that Shawn signed the separation papers willingly. Belle brings up that Shawn said she filed those papers so she could sleep with EJ and maybe he was right.

Evan can’t believe Jan already had the baby. Orpheus says that’s how he knew it was a boy. Evan counts in his head and says it’s too early. Orpheus confirms the baby was premature. Evan asks if he’s okay and wants to see him. Orpheus reveals that the baby is at the hospital and the whole point is that he needs Jan on the outside. Evan questions what he’s up to.

Shawn tells Brady that if he’s trying to save he and Belle’s marriage then he should be talking to Belle because she has shut him out at every corner. Shawn argues that he thought he was making love to Belle and thought he did nothing wrong, but that meant nothing to Belle. Shawn repeats that if Brady is trying to help them, he shouldn’t be talking to him, he should be talking to his sister. Shawn then walks away. Chloe comes out of the room and goes to Brady, guessing that didn’t go well. Brady declares that Shawn is right that he needs to talk to Belle now.

EJ tells Belle that they had a very honest talk and were both upfront that there was an element of sticking it to Shawn and Sami, but that was just an element. EJ declares he’s wanted Belle for a very long time and he knows she wants the same, which she admits. EJ suggests they stop talking about guilt which is basically talking about them. EJ wants this night to just be about them. EJ wants to spend the night with her by his side and to see her face when he wakes up in the morning.

Chad tells JJ that he keeps going back in his mind and trying to rewind so that they left for Boston the night before like Abigail wanted to, before he talked her out of it. JJ argues that there’s no way he could’ve known what would happen. Chad says he can picture them there being happy. Chad cries that he can hear Abigail’s laugh and see her smile.

Jack suggests Jennifer go downstairs while he picks something out and will be right down. Jennifer says she couldn’t do that to him, so they will do this together. Jennifer looks in the closet and tells a story about a dress Abigail bought when she was with her. Jack decides that’s the dress and suggests she tell Chad that story when he’s ready to hear it.

Orpheus informs Evan that he made a deal with Jan; he helps her dupe Shawn and she helps him with a little favor. Evan questions what he told her and how he convinced her that he was willing to screw over his own son to help her. Orpheus reveals that Jan has no idea that they are father and son, just like Shawn has no idea that he’s not the baby’s father.

Shawn returns to Jan’s hospital room. Jan complains that Chloe was horrible to her and says Shawn needs to tell Brady to keep Chloe away from her. Shawn agrees to tell Brady to have Chloe back off but says Jan needs to listen to him and hear what he has to say. Jan questions if he’s mad at her. Shawn explains that he’s frustrated because she shouldn’t have kissed him as she cannot turn this in to something that it isn’t. Jan claims she’s not trying to and says that when she kissed him, she found out that it’s not just her imagination and he felt something too. Jan states that she knows that now.

JJ admits he feels a little weird being here instead of Chad’s brothers since he wasn’t always Chad’s biggest fan. Chad understands he never thought he was good enough for Abigail. JJ tells him that he’s sorry. Chad says he was probably right but JJ insists that he wasn’t. Chad says his brothers would probably just try to say the right thing while JJ knew Abigail better than anyone and loved her. Chad says his brothers couldn’t understand how much he loved Abigail while JJ does. JJ wants Chad to know that he changed his mind after awhile and seeing them together, so he thought maybe Chad was good enough for her. JJ declares that anyone good enough for Abigail is pretty damn good in his book. JJ states that his parents only had one son, but he has a brother as he and Chad embrace.

Jennifer seals up the dress for Abigail to be buried in. Jack tells her that they did it. Jennifer thanks him and says now they just have to get through the funeral. Jack encourages that they will do that just like they did this; together. Jack and Jennifer then exit together.

Belle tells EJ that she can’t stay here because she’s not ready for spending the night and waking up with him yet. EJ tells her that he will hold on to the yet. Belle kisses EJ and then gets out of his bed. Belle adds that it was wonderful as they say goodnight to each other and Belle then exits the room.

Chloe doesn’t think Brady should go see Belle right now. Brady insists that he needs to talk to Belle now. Chloe encourages him to wait until the morning. Brady questions if she’s trying to tell him something. Chloe says she’s not telling him anything other than that he shouldn’t go over there tonight.

Jan insists that she knows Shawn felt the same way she did when they kissed. Shawn refuses to listen to this. Jan shouts that they are going to be a family and he’s going to come around as Shawn storms out of the room.

Evan questions Orpheus not telling him that he knew he had sex with Jan Spears, that she got pregnant, and that he switched the paternity tests and now won’t tell him what he’s getting in return. Orpheus says he knows it might seem like he doesn’t trust him, but he’s in the middle of a high stakes game and needs to keep his cards close to the vest.

Evan met with Orpheus at the prison. Orpheus wanted Evan to get his help the next time he escaped prison. Evan thought the devil test failed for him. He was consumed by getting revenge on Ben and Ciara. He realized he could have been with his son if he were a better man. He said he had a chance to be with David, but he blew it. He regretted not going on the run with his son. Orpheus dropped the bomb that Zoe moved to New Zealand with her ex and the baby. Evan was upset, but Orpheus told him to focus on family matters that were close to him. Shawn told Jan about Belle being upset with him. He told her what happened when he ran into her. Julie walked in while he was telling Jan about keeping her out of prison. Julie didn’t blame Belle for being upset with him for doing that. Julie told Jan that she was a snake and should be in prison. She told Shawn he was being naive. Jan and Julie started arguing with each other. She told Shawn about the gitt Hope gave Ciara and Ben (the boat). She assured Shawn that he and Belle would get back together.

EJ wanted to go back to making love to Belle, but she wasn’t comfortable after Sami’s visit. She thought things were different while she wasn’t in Salem.

Update written by Joseph

Evan Frears/Christian Maddox confronts his father Orpheus in prison. Orpheus questions him being out of solitary so soon and asks how he’s doing. Evan remarks that it’s just been rest and relaxation in oblivion. Orpheus comments on his disappearing act leaving the warden red-faced with bad press. Orpheus guesses a slap on the wrist wouldn’t do the trick. Orpheus asks about Evan’s little vacation on the outside. Evan confirms he did get to catch up with some old friends..

Ciara finishes a call with Hope at home and says it was great catching up. Ben comes back in and jokes about how long Ciara was on the phone and that it seemed like years. Ben is glad they got to catch up and asks what they talked about. Ciara brings up Jan just giving birth to Shawn’s baby.

Shawn sits with Jan in the hospital as she eats a burger. Jan thanks him for saving her from another night of hospital food. Jan asks Shawn what’s wrong as he’s been emo since getting back with the food. Shawn informs her that he ran in to Belle and she’s more upset with him now than ever.

EJ tells Belle that hoped they could pick up where they left off before being rudely interrupted. Belle says he can’t be serious because they were about to go to his bedroom, but she says they can’t after what just happened with Sami.

Lucas and Sami kiss in their room at the Salem Inn. Lucas is so glad she said yes to his proposal and talks about being traumatized from past proposals where she took her time. Lucas brings up when he sang to her. Sami calls this the most perfect time as they are together again. Sami says she loves her ring and calls it the best one he’s ever given her. Lucas jokes that it’s also the most expensive. Sami says this is going to be their best time because she’s not keeping any secrets from him so it’s going to work out. Lucas agrees that this time is going to be forever as they kiss.

Ben asks Ciara how Hope feels about Jan Spears sort of joining the family. Ciara says she’s not thrilled about that part, but she is about meeting her new grandson and their baby as well. Ben mentions that baby Bo finally fell asleep so they are clear for the next few hours unless she has more phone calls. Ciara thinks they have making up of their own to do as they kiss until there’s a knock at the door. Ben jokes about missing when they had all the time in the world. Ciara answers the door to see Allie, who says she knows she should’ve called first but she was afraid she would chicken out of apologizing for kidnapping her baby. Allie asks Ciara if there’s any way she could ever forgive her.

EJ knows he and Belle weren’t expecting Sami to show up but he doesn’t see how that changes anything. Belle argues that they know things were different went Sami was out of town because she was out of sight and out of mind. EJ insists that Sami is out of sight now and his mind. Belle thinks jumping in to bed with her right after ending his marriage seems like a bad idea. EJ disagrees and calls it a great idea to celebrate his freedom. Belle tells EJ that if they go upstairs now, it wouldn’t be about them but about him sticking it to her sister and she’s not going to be used like that.

Orpheus questions Evan about Ben and Ciara getting the best of him again. Evan admits he should’ve given his plan more thought. Orpheus argues that he could’ve helped him, so he shouldn’t have left him out of the loop. Evan calls it spur of the moment, explaining that Allie made the whole thing happened and that he made a deal with the Devil.

Ciara assures Allie that she forgives her as none of what happened was her fault. Allie feels responsible. Ben backs up Ciara that they don’t blame her at all and invites her in. Allie thanks them and admits she was afraid they would slam the door in her face. Ciara assures they love her. Allie is relieved and happy. Allie praises Ciara as a mom and asks how she defeated the Devil. Ciara responds that she actually had a little help from her dad.

Sami tells Lucas that she can’t believe Lucas was at the DiMera Mansion and straight up said she didn’t believe EJ isn’t guilty. Sami calls it crazy that her sister is defending the man who kidnapped her. Lucas talks about Sami and Belle always having a screwed up relationship, bringing up Sami trying to sell Belle on the black market as a baby. Sami argues that was a long time ago and they should get over it. Lucas adds that Sami also set Jan Spears loose. Sami admits that was extreme but she was desperate to get custody of their grandson. Lucas points out that Sami bringing Jan back led to Jan having a son with Shawn. Lucas understands Belle would hate her for messing up her marriage and says she has a right to be ticked off.

EJ assures Belle that if they go upstairs and make love, it won’t be because he wants to hurt Sami but because he wants to do the opposite to Belle. Belle wants to believe that very much, but says it’s really tough when she knows he’s pretending that he doesn’t care that his marriage just ended. Belle says he’s very good at it but he loved Sami. EJ says that is past tense and he’s moved on with Belle or at least he thought. Belle doesn’t know if she can trust his motives. EJ feels she’s being ridiculous. Belle brings up that John told her that EJ was using her to get back at Sami and at the time she blew up at him, but maybe he was right. EJ thinks she’s projecting and thinks he’s using her because the whole time, she’s been using him to get back at Shawn.

Jan tells Shawn that she doesn’t mean to pry but asks what happened. Shawn doesn’t want to talk about it. Jan feels it’s unfair that Shawn has no one to confide in while Belle is spilling her guts to EJ. Jan adds that she won’t offer an opinion and will only listen. Shawn then talks about how at first things were going well and they both admitted there was still hope for the two of them which Jan questions. Shawn adds that then he told Belle that the warden extended Jan’s house arrest and things took a turn for the worse as Belle was fed up. Julie then walks in and asks if he can blame Belle.

Evan/Christian explains to Orpheus that Allie was possessed by the Devil and he totally blew it as he never should’ve let Satan put him under his spell instead of running, but he let hate get the better of him. Orpheus supposes that was The Devil’s plan all along. Evan says the second he saw the innocent baby, he should’ve been stronger but instead all he could see was revenge and hurting Ben and Ciara in the worst way possible. He calls it a test that he failed while if he was a better man, he’d be with his son now. Evan laments that he wasted the opportunity to get to his son David.

Ciara talks about her father Bo appearing to her, feeling his presence in the cemetery and then her and Ben seeing him at the hospital. Allie acknowledges that anything is possible. Ciara states that she misses her dad so much and wishes to see him and talk to him one last time. Ciara talks about Bo being at the hospital waiting to meet her baby. Allie calls that amazing. Ciara asks Allie how her dad is doing. Allie says she’s going to see him next for the first time since Abigail died. Ciara says it’s so awful what happened to her. Allie agrees and doesn’t know what to say to Lucas. Ciara is sure something will come to her and that being there will comfort him. Ciara sends her best as she and Allie hug.

Sami tells Lucas that Shawn’s behavior is not her fault. Lucas suggesting not focusing on Shawn and Belle but on their future and happiness together. Sami agrees and suggests they go share their happy story with their family. Lucas agrees and says they make a great team as they kiss.

Julie complains about Shawn sharing his feelings about his wife with Jan. Jan points out that she’s the mother of Shawn’s baby so she is now family. Julie disagrees and calls her a snake, who tricked Shawn in to getting her pregnant. Julie says it’s time for Jan to slither back behind bars. Jan can’t believe she would be so cold hearted about her own great grandson and asks if she doesn’t want him to be raised by his mother. Julie says not when his mother is a murderer. Jan argues that she did the whole town a favor by getting rid of Charlie Dale and that she did that to protect Claire, so she’s basically a hero that she should thank. Julie argues that heroes don’t have ulterior motives, schemes, or plots. Julie adds that Jan just wanted Belle out of the way to frame her for murder.

Belle tells EJ not to turn this around on her. EJ argues that she questioned his motives, so it’s only fair to examine hers too. EJ asks why every time Belle had a fight with Shawn, she came running here. Belle says she needed someone to talk to. EJ argues that she could’ve turned to Chloe, Brady, or anyone else but she specifically sought him out and knew it would get back to Shawn. Belle admits that she knew it would bother Shawn but that’s not why she confided in him. EJ says she directly involved him in her separation. EJ adds that she could’ve stayed at the Salem Inn but she stayed the night here and they’ve kissed more than once. EJ questions if this is all because of Shawn or if she has real feelings for him. Belle says she wouldn’t have suggested going upstairs if she didn’t. EJ complains that now she’s pulling away so he wonders if she was just playing a game that suddenly got out of hand. Belle calls EJ petty for calling a conflicted woman a tease. EJ remarks that she has been throwing herself at him. Belle calls him unbelievable and suggests ending the conversation before he makes more of an ass of himself. Belle goes to leave but EJ grabs her arm and asks her not to go.

Julie questions why Shawn is helping Jan stay out of prison. Shawn says he’s doing it for his son. Julie argues that Jan is just using him. Shawn tells Julie that he has the situation under control. Julie wishes she believed that but decides they will talk about it another time. Julie says she just came to congratulate him and see the new baby. Jan talks about the baby looking like her. Julie says it’s time for her to go before she does something she regrets. Julie mentions going to see Ciara to give her the most wonderful gift from Hope that she’s so excited about. Shawn asks what it is. Julie says he will never guess.

Ciara and Ben open presents that Allie gave them, which are bath toys for baby Bo. Ciara reveals to Ben that Hope said she had a very special gift for them. Ciara then announces they are now the proud owners of a boat.

Allie runs in to Sami and Lucas in the town square. Allie says she was just coming to see Lucas but didn’t know Sami was in town as they hug. Sami says she just got in and she’s sorry she couldn’t be there sooner. Allie understands the doctors wouldn’t let her fly. Sami talks about being worried about Allie and Johnny so she wanted to see for herself that they are okay. Allie jokes about it and says she and Johnny are coping by making possession jokes. Lucas suggests telling Allie the news now that they reunited. Sami informs Allie that Lucas proposed and she said yes. Allie congratualtes them and hugs them.

Belle doesn’t think there’s anything left to say. EJ argues that it would be cowardly for her to walk out now. EJ thinks they should talk this out honestly as they owe each other that. Belle agrees to give him the truth and admits maybe a small part of her was trying to get back at Shawn through him. EJ says that’s what he suspected. Belle tells EJ that it’s his turn. EJ admits it’s crossed his mind that being with her would upset Sami and he can’t say he doesn’t find satisfaction with that. EJ argues that there’s more to their attraction than just a desire for revenge as they do have a real connection. Belle questions if they do or if they are just fooling themselves.

Evan hates that he’s missed so much of his son’s life and wishes he would’ve just left town and gone on the run with him. Orpheus says that wouldn’t have worked since his sister Zoey wouldn’t have approved and they would’ve struggled on the run. Orpheus adds that there is something else he doesn’t know. Orpheus reveals that Zoey got back with her ex-husband and they moved to New Zealand with his son, so David is on the other side of the world.

Ben questions Ciara saying that Hope is giving them a boat, calling that a little extravagant. Ciara explains that boats are kind of a thing in their family since Bo had one for a really long time and named it after Hope as they spent years traveling the seas. Ben says it sounds amazing. Ciara notes that Shawn was inspired to do the same thing when Claire was born and lived on a boat for years. Ciara tells Ben that now they have their own boat so they can travel whenever and where ever they want to make amazing memories of their own.

Julie informs Shawn that Hope bought a boat for Ciara and Ben which he calls amazing. Jan asks where their boat is since they just had a baby. Shawn recalls how much he enjoyed traveling the world with Belle and Claire on their boat, calling it some of the best times of their lives. Shawn says it feels like yesterday. Julie encourages that he and Belle will still have lots of wonderful adventures as there’s no power in the world to stop them from being together. Shawn hugs Julie while she glares at Jan.

EJ tells Belle that they have something special as the past few months growing closer has meant a lot to him and he wants that to continue. Belle argues it’s so mixed up and complicated, asking how much of this is about sticking it to their exes and how much is actually about them. EJ points out that if he cared more about hurting Sami, he would’ve told her that they had kissed or thrown it in her face that they were about to go upstairs but he didn’t do those things because this has nothing to do with Sami and is none of her business. EJ declares this is about them. EJ agrees that what they have is complicated but they aren’t kids anymore and life is complicated, so they have a lot of baggage. EJ doesn’t care about that and states that he wants Belle.

Allie asks when Sami and Lucas are getting remarried. Sami says they haven’t had a chance to talk about when. Lucas votes for as soon as possible. Sami points out that she has to file the divorce papers since EJ signed them. Allie suggests they get married while they are both in town. Sami mentions she still can’t believe what happened to Abigail. Allie says that’s why she was coming to check on Lucas. Lucas says he’s alright and is just worried about Jennifer. Allie hopes they find the monster who did this and locks them up forever. Lucas says they all do. Allie apologizes for bringing the mood down and suggests they celebrate. Sami wants to go to the Pub to break the news to Kate and Roman. Sami then walks off with Allie. Lucas thinks back to waking up after passing out drunk, unable to remember anything. Lucas then follows after Sami and Allie.

Evan yells in frustration as he can’t believe Zoey would move across the world without consulting him and took his son away. Orpheus points out that she does have full custody of David and didn’t have to get his approval or even tell him. Evan wants to call her and get her to bring him back. Orpheus says he wouldn’t hold his breath for that but suggests he focus on a family matter a little closer to home. Evan questions what that means.

Julie goes to Ben and Ciara’s with a gift from Hope. Ben and Ciara talk about the boat. Julie presents them with the keys and says it’s in the marina for whenever they are ready. They see the key is named after putting their names together “Cin” and joke about couple names. Ben declares that he thinks he’s going to love Living in Cin.

Belle tells EJ that she doesn’t know as this all just feels like a big mistake. EJ reminds her that she is legally separated and he’s essentially divorced, so there’s nothing stopping them from getting in to their feelings unless she doesn’t feel the same way as he does. Belle responds that she does feel the same but she doesn’t want them to get together for the wrong reasons. EJ tells her that he understands and doesn’t want to put her under any pressure or make her feel used. EJ decides maybe they can take some time to think this over. Belle starts to leave the room but stops and declares that she’s spent her entire life thinking things through and this is where it’s gotten her. Belle states that she knows what she wants and goes back to begin kissing EJ.

Ben and Ciara tell Julie to send their best to Lani as Julie then exits. Ciara says it’s so tempting to go check out the boat right now but they should probably wait until the morning. Ciara thinks they should plan a little trip soon. Ben asks why a little trip since Hope and Bo took Shawn sailing around the world and then Shawn and Belle took Claire, so what if they did the same with baby Bo.

Lucas and Sami return to their room at the Salem Inn. Sami complains about Kate’s reaction to their engagement being subdued and thought they had gotten over hating each other. Lucas thinks Kate kind of knew that he was going to propose so he says not to read too much in to Kate not being shocked. Lucas declares that he has enough enthusiasm to go around as they kiss.

EJ and Belle go to the bedroom and kiss on to the bed. EJ asks if she’s sure this is what she wants. Belle tells EJ to make love to her as they continue kissing.

Jan asks Shawn if they can visit their baby Shawn Christian again which he agrees to. Jan promises to be a great mother to their son. Jan is aware she has to go back to prison and it will kill her, but at least he will have Shawn to look after him. Jan tells Shawn that he will be a great father to their son.

Evan doesn’t know what other family matter Orpheus is talking about but says nothing is more important than his son. Orpheus reveals that he is talking about his son; his other son that he conceived with Jan Spears!

Young & The Restless Update

Y&R logo

Recap written by Christine

Michael was in the lounge at The Grand Phoenix. He thanked someone on the phone for their help with the situation in NY. He said he’d set up the meeting with Victor Newman in return for their help, as this person had requested. Lauren arrived, and Michael ended the call. Lauren noticed that Michael had used his slick voice on the caller, and she said that usually meant he was doing something squirrelly for Victor. Michael texted Victor – “All systems go.” He said he was just doing his job, and well. She just had an issue with the nature of his job. He assured her that he wasn’t doing anything dangerous or illegal. She still felt nervous, since he was working for Victor. He shifted gears and suggested a romantic weekend somewhere tropical. She was tempted, but she needed to be in town, because there was so much going on at Jabot and Fenmore’s. He wanted to squeeze in some romance now and suggested lunch at their place. She didn’t have time to go back home, so she suggested they go upstairs instead. In their suite, Lauren and Michael danced, then she took off his shirt, and he nuzzled her neck. Later, they came downstairs and shared a kiss before she left for work.

Chelsea ran into Billy at Crimson Lights and thanked him for being kind in the park the other day. She said she got a chance to listen to his podcast, and she didn’t enjoy it at all. She wasn’t trying to be harsh – she admired what he was trying to do. He said she was in the minority, because most people liked it. He wanted to know why she found his inner thoughts and dreams were so off-putting to her. She felt the first few episodes were too mired in self recrimination and the past. She said she liked to laugh and listen to something uplifting and entertaining. She felt that was what people really needed right now. She said she had a hard year, and she needed to be pulled out of that. She said he was one of the funniest people she knew, and when she listened to the podcast, she felt like she was missing out on the levity and humor. He said she made it sound like he didn’t enjoy life whatsoever, and he did. She thought he was getting defensive, which was a sign he knew she was right. He said he could see where she was coming from. He’d forgotten how well she used to know him.

Billy said maybe Chelsea was right, and his podcast could use some lightness. Lily entered up and joined them. He told her about Chelsea’s not so glowing review. Lily predicted that Chelsea said the podcast could use a little lightness. Lily thought Billy was doing a great job with the podcast and that it was his way of working through all the stuff he was working through. He said it wasn’t really about him working through things, it was about him wanting to make a connection with people going through other things. Lily just thought things could stand to be a little less dour and that the medicine would go down better with a little sugar. Chelsea said Billy was one of the funniest people she knew – he’d make people laugh and teach them a few things. Billy thought that if two smart savvy women were saying this, he should listen. Lauren arrived for a meeting with Chelsea, after a quick chat with everyone, she and Chelsea headed to the patio. Billy asked Lily why she didn’t tell him his podcast was miserable. She thought his tone was a refreshing contrast to all the chipper podcasts out there. She said his podcast was real. He said that translated into dour for her. He wondered if he was morose. She told him not to let a little constructive criticism send him down the rabbit hole.

Out on the patio, Lauren blamed her husband for her lateness. She said it was a much needed respite. Chelsea understood Lauren had a little love in the afternoon. Lauren said she was married to the love of her life. She was ready to talk fashion. Chelsea said she heard about Gloria’s trip to London, and she was curious about the fashion scene over there. Lauren promised to get Chelsea and Gloria together. Gloria had told Lauren that she’d been concerned there was some tension between Chelsea and Chloe. Chelsea thought it was natural for herself and Chloe to have disagreements once in awhile, but they’d get through it. Lauren was relieved to hear that. She asked if Chelsea heard from Summer. Chelsea was meeting Summer later today, but she wasn’t sure what about. Lauren decided not to say anything, because she didn’t want to step on Summer’s toes. Chelsea showed off some of her sketches, and Lauren loved them. While Lauren was looking at the tablet, Chelsea craned her neck to watch Billy and Lily.

Sally visited Adam in his office. She read him some quotes from several glowing stories about the press conference. One writer called him Newman’s secret weapon and praised his bold and confident performance. He wondered if things went too well. She said there was no such thing. He just couldn’t help feeling like there might be another shoe waiting to drop. She said he was on top of the world, and he could handle any crisis that cropped up. He wasn’t concerned about things regarding the company itself, but he had to be on his toes when it came to Victor. Adam said Victoria could call and say she wanted to come home as long as she got her job back, and Victor would kick Adam to the curb, since that had been Victor’s plan all along. Sally didn’t discount that, but she didn’t envision Victoria doing a 180 and coming back home. She said if Victoria really loved Ashland the way Sally and Adam thought she did, it wouldn’t make sense for her to throw all that away. Adam said his sister was more complicated than Sally knew. Sally said Victoria must be complicated – why else would she be involved with a man like Ashland, twice. Adam said Victoria’s need for power and their dad’s approval might prove to be stronger than her love for Ashland. Sally said she was betting on love, and in the meantime, she thought he should enjoy his time in the big chair. She was sure he’d prove he was the best person for his job.

Nick arrived at Society, having been summoned by his father. Looking pleased with himself, Victor said he’d made sure whatever venture Ashland and Victoria were about to embark on would hit a brick wall. Victor told all the potential investors not to invest in Ashland and Victoria’s new start up. He’d also had Michael approach some potential investors and warn them not to invest either. Nick thought that was cutthroat. Victor said he didn’t play games. He felt he had no choice. Nick had been wondering if Victoria told him about her plans as a test to see if he would share them with Victor. He theorized that Victoria wanted to find out if the family actually believed in her for once or if they’d undermine her yet again.

Victor knew Nick had been reluctant to share this information with him. Victor told Nick that he’d made the right decision. Nick said he’d heard that before and lived to regret it. He wondered what Victor did to keep people from investing in the company. Victor said he let people know that Ashland had small cell lung carcinoma. He reasoned that they wouldn’t want to invest in the company of a man who was about to die. Nick thought that was pretty clever. Victor said the beauty of it was he and Michael didn’t say anything that wasn’t true – only Ashland lied, and now the lie was coming back to bite him. Victor noted that Nick always complained about being left out of the loop. Victor asked if Nick wasn’t happy to be included this time. Nick appreciated Victor bringing him into this, but he felt guilty because Victoria would know he betrayed her, and he was nervous about the blow-back. Victor wasn’t nervous – he said they had to save Victoria and Newman Enterprises, and he’d do whatever it took to do so.

Nick said Victoria was adamant about having her independence. He was afraid Victor’s move would set her off even more. Nick had tried reaching out to Victoria again, and she wasn’t responding. Victor said there was nothing left for Nick to do but sit back and give Victoria some time. Nick knew Victor hoped putting Adam in the CEO’s seat would force Victoria to come home and take the reins of the company, but when he talked to Victoria, she knew about the press conference, and she was unfazed. Victor didn’t buy that, because Victoria had Newman blood running through her veins. Victor just wondered why Victoria would tell Nick that she and Ashalnd went to NY to start a new venture. “Do you think she knew that I would tell you? I mean, are you already seven steps ahead?,” Nick asked. Victor smiled and said Nick would find out. Nick didn’t like all the deception and all the games being played. He didn’t think it was necessary, and he asked if Victor thought it would reunite the family. Adam and Sally arrived.

Adam and Sally walked up to the table, and Adam asked what was going on. Adam wanted himself and Sally to be in the loop if Nick and Victor were discussing Newman. Nick congratulated them on their promotions. Adam said it was unexpected. He said he always thought the company was Victoria’s top priority, but he guessed not. He added that Sally thought Victoria running off with Ashland was romantic. Sally said Victoria obviously loved Ashland, and that was the most important thing. Adam said he knew Nick only cared about Victoria’s well being and he didn’t give a damn who was running the company. Adam added that Nick made it clear he wasn’t invested in the family business. Nick said that might change. Adam said he looked forward to hearing more about that, and he excused himself and Sally. Victor wanted to know what Nick meant by that remark. He claimed he didn’t mean anything by it and that he just said it as a knee-jerk response to Adam. Victor was skeptical, since he’d noticed an increased interest from Nick about the business. Nick said he was just trying to get under Adam’s skin. Nick felt he and Victor both knew Adam didn’t give a damn about Victoria and that he only cared about running Newman. Nick just wanted to give Adam something to worry about.

Ashland walked into the NY hotel suite with takeout and told Victoria he had bad news. She said she did too. His bad news was that they weren’t able to poach a great employee at Newman. Dan, the employee, didn’t want to join a new company. Her bad news was that all the investors turned them down. It was hard for him to believe every single investor said no. He said something wasn’t right. She told him she was surprised too. He theorized that Victor found out they were trying to start a company, and he reached out to dissuade the investors.

Victoria hated to admit it, but that made sense. She said her father always amazed her with his ability to find out the most private things about people. It was like a superpower he had. She griped about Victor ensuring that she couldn’t make a clean break. Ashland wasn’t sure how Victoria put up with her family’s interference as long as she did. She said it took him coming into her life to finally see the issue with her family and try to push back. He asked if she’d told anyone about their plans, even by accident – did she mention to anyone that they were going to NYC? She lied and said no. She said she was so angry and frustrated that she needed time and space before she could speak to her family and Billy again. He asked her again if she was ready to start a whole new life with him and leave her family behind.

Victoria said she wasn’t going back on her decision. She couldn’t stand letting herself be controlled and coddled by her family one more second. She needed them to see her as a person who couldn’t be manipulated. She said she knew what she wanted, and she was doing the right thing. Ashland knew Victoria didn’t need his approval, but he agreed. He thought it was time for her to stand up for herself, and he wanted to be by her side when she did. He hoped he was there to witness the moment when the Newman family witnessed defeat.

Ashland started unpacking the food, and the camera focused on Victoria’s inscrutable expression. Later, they sat down to eat, and she said her father’s influence exceeded theirs. He ranted that most fathers wanted to support their daughters, not sabotage them. He said he wasn’t going to let Victor thwart their dream of starting a new company. She suggested they give more thought to funding the venture, themselves. He seemed reluctant. She knew it was a big risk, but she said they’d be betting on themselves, and she knew they’d be successful. She said they’d also spare themselves the humiliation of having more doors slammed in their faces. He said once people found out they were having trouble raising money, that would cast a shadow over everything they were trying to do. He didn’t want more rejection. He said maybe it would be a bigger thrill and give more satisfaction of starting something entirely on their own. He said that doing this with her would mean the world to her. He added that if all the initial investment was theirs, all the profit would be theirs too. “Let’s do this,” he said, and she grinned at him.

Victoria said this was so exciting. She said the first thing she was going to do was open a corporate bank account for their newly formed company. She told him to call the real estate company and look for a property. She wanted an entire building. He asked if she didn’t think a floor would be enough. She said they were going to expanding at a rapid rate, so they shouldn’t waste time on a lease. He just loved how they both looked at the world in the same way – as something to be devoured. He felt like they were so close to capturing the magic they had when they first met.

Ashland made the call about buying a building. While he was busy with that, Victoria secretly texted someone. “Everything’s coming together,” she wrote.

Chad sits in the living room of John and Marlena’s, having just told his kids about Abigail’s death. Marlena comes home and sits next to him, noting that Belle just told her that he told the kids.

Rafe sits in his office, going over photos from the crime scene of Abigail’s murder. Nicole arrives and says she’s sorry to interrupt but she was wondering if he had any luck on Abigail’s case and she brought him some food. Rafe thanks her but says he’s just pouring over the photos again, trying to see if he’s missed anything but so far he hasn’t been able to zero in on a suspect.

Lucas sits in his room at the Salem Inn, thinking back to Sami telling him there’s no way she would stay married to a man who lied about kidnapping her. Kate arrives and questions what the hell happened in the room.

EJ and Belle kiss in the DiMera Mansion. They start to head upstairs when the doorbell rings. Belle tells him to ignore it but EJ says it could be the police about Abigail’s investigation. EJ then answers the door, shocked to see Sami.

Kate remarks that Lucas’s room looks like his room in high school. Kate assumes he was looking for something. Lucas explains that he learned that Abigail’s killer may have taken some jewelry from her room and he hoped it wasn’t here, but he couldn’t find it anywhere so now he’s thinking and hoping maybe he didn’t do it. Kate wishes they could base that on more than an absence of jewelry. Kate asks if he can’t remember anything from that night. Lucas says he can’t but the rumor is that whoever killed Abigail took the jewelry and he doesn’t have it, so he’s thinking it was somebody else. Lucas says he has to stay positive through this in order to stay sane. Lucas then shows Kate his engagement ring and announces he’s finally going to propose to Sami.

Sami tells EJ that she needs to talk to him and walks in. Sami is surprised to see Belle inside and questions what she’s doing there. EJ explains that Belle is his attorney and they were just discussing some legal matters. Sami asks what kind of trouble EJ has gotten himself in to this time. Belle clarifies that EJ hasn’t done anything. Sami asks if she’s kidding and argues that nobody just has their lawyer hanging around for no reason. Sami feels since she’s still EJ’s wife, she has a right to know what mess he’s gotten himself in to this time. Belle assures that he hasn’t and reveals to Sami that the truth is, she’s staying at the DiMera Mansion.

Lucas informs Kate that Sami just got back in to town and went to see EJ to get him to sign the divorce papers. Kate questions why he didn’t stop her. Lucas says he tried to tell her to let the lawyers handle it but she wouldn’t listen and wanted EJ to sign the papers today. Lucas is not happy with EJ and Sami being alone together but if it means she’s finally through with him once and for all then he’s good. Kate says that’s assuming EJ signs the divorce papers and he’s never done anything to benefit Lucas. Kate asks what if EJ is instead going to try to convince Sami that he’s innocent and point the finger at Lucas.

Belle informs Sami about her and Shawn being separated and Shawn having Jan Spears’ baby. Sami understands why she doesn’t want to stay with Shawn but questions her not staying with Marlena. Belle explains that she was until Marlena decided to be Jan’s therapist, so she couldn’t really stay there anymore. Sami questions there not being any room at a hotel in town and that bunking with her client was her only option. EJ then declares that Belle is actually more than just his attorney.

Roman sits with Eric in his room and asks about Eric having a lot on his mind. Roman feels this has something to do with Nicole. Roman brings up what Kate said and apologizes for her putting him on the spot. Roman will never understand why Kate loves stirring up trouble and wishes she had a better hobby. Roman states that Eric is his son, so he does think he’s justified in wanting to know what’s going on with Eric and Nicole. Roman asks if he cares to share.

Nicole says it must be so hard for Rafe to work on this case while he’s still grieving Abigail. Rafe admits that it is, but whoever did this left two children without a mother, so he’s more than motivated to make them pay. Rafe declares he won’t be able to live with himself unless he gets this maniac off the streets. Nicole encourages that he will and she has faith in him. Rafe asks about Nicole’s day and what’s going on at Basic Black. Nicole responds that she actually didn’t come from the office. Rafe asks if she had a meeting. Nicole reveals that she was actually lucky enough to attend Abe’s impromptu wedding, so she got to spend the day celebrating life and love.

Chad tells Marlena that he read a few articles about how to tell a child that their parent has died and tried to use some of that advice but it went out the window as soon as he saw them. Marlena calls Chad a fabulous dad and she’s sure he did the best he could. Chad feels he just said all the usual things like “mom had to go to Heaven” and that she’ll always be in their heart. Marlena encourages that is true and thinks he said the right thing. Chad doesn’t know and says that Thomas gets it but Charlotte just kept asking when her mom was coming back and he had to tell her that she’s not coming back. Chad doesn’t know how to expect her to understand when he doesn’t understand it himself.

Rafe tells Nicole that it’s great news that Abe and Paulina finally tied the knot. Nicole calls it spur of the moment, otherwise she would’ve asked him to be her plus one. Rafe says he couldn’t have gone anyway since he wouldn’t have felt right taking time off of work. Rafe is glad that she went to support them though. Nicole states that the ceremony was fine but the reception got cut short by Lani confessing to having shot TR. Rafe mentions that he just got the paperwork about Lani confessing to killing TR but he didn’t realize she did it in the middle of the reception. Nicole says it brought everything to a halt. Rafe guesses Nicole didn’t get to eat and invites her to join him in the food she brought for him. Nicole informs him that she actually did have lunch as she ended up at the Pub. Rafe asks if she ate by herself but Nicole reveals she was with Roman, Kate, and Eric.

Roman tells Eric that he doesn’t want to pry but Eric and Nicole obviously have history and he knows how much it hurt him when he found out Nicole slept with Xander. Roman wonders if now that some time has passed, if they will be able to work things out. Eric says Roman makes it sound so easy but Nicole has moved on with Rafe now and is apparently very much in love. Eric adds that they are engaged but Roman points out they aren’t married yet.

Lucas tells Kate that he is worried about EJ pointing the finger at him but he would’ve needed a physical barrier in the doorway to stop Sami from going. Kate questions him being unable to stop a woman on crutches from leaving. Lucas argues that she could’ve used the crutches as weapons and even if he managed to stop Sami, she would have realized that it would make him look suspicious and she’d wonder why he would care what EJ says, giving her all the more reason to think it’s true. Kate admits that she sees his point. Lucas feels that this way, Sami knows that he’s not threatened by anything EJ says and he’s just hoping that whatever he does say, she won’t take much stock in it because today he’s going to propose to her. Kate asks Lucas if he really thinks this is the right time to push the wedding.

Sami questions what EJ means by saying Belle is more than just his attorney. EJ responds that they have become friends and Belle has been a great support since coming to stay here, especially on the night of Abigail’s murder. Sami questions Belle being there when that happened. Belle confirms that she was and they tried to do everything they could. EJ adds that they got the kids to Marlena and John’s. Belle notes that’s where Chad is now as he just told the kids that their mother died.

Marlena tells Chad that she’s had a few patients over the years that have had to tell a child that a parent wasn’t coming home and says there is no right or wrong way to do it. Marlena says she would never presume to tell him how to tell his children, but she knows he is a kind man and a wonderful father. Marlena thanks God that they have him. Chad thanks God that he has them. Marlena offers to talk to the kids which Chad agrees to if she wouldn’t mind. Marlena says she’d be very glad to do anything she can to help. Chad tells her that they are in with John now as Jack and Jennifer brought over a race car track for them to play with. John comes out and says he didn’t know Marlena was home as he greets her. John confirms Thomas and Charlotte are playing with the race cars. Chad thanks Marlena as she goes to talk to the kids.

Sami says no matter how she may feel about Abigail, her heart breaks for the kids as she knows what it’s like to have to tell a kid that their parent isn’t coming home and have to face a future of raising children alone. Sami says that’s actually why she’s here. Sami then presents EJ with divorce papers and says she would like him to sign them.

John talks with Chad about going through a similar situation when he lost his wife Isabella right after getting married and they had just had Brady when they found out she had cancer. John recalls Isabella dying in his arms. Chad asks how he goes on. John says initially, he just knew he had to be there for Brady and slowly his life started to fill up with Belle, Marlena, and her kids. John says now when he remembers Isabella, he just thinks about how lucky he was to have her before he had to say goodbye. Chad declares the difference is that John got to say goodbye while he never did.

EJ tells Sami that it’s not that he can wait to sever their marital bonds but there’s a lot going on right now with Abigail’s death and the birth of Shawn’s baby. Sami questions what Shawn’s baby has to do with whether or not he signs the papers. EJ says his point is that it’s obvious he has a lot on his plate and there’s no pressing need to finalize the divorce right now. Sami then reveals that there actually is because she and Lucas are getting married again.

Lucas asks if Kate is saying he shouldn’t ask Sami to marry him. Kate clarifies that she’s just saying he has a lot going on right now and he might not be able to focus on the wedding when he’s worried about whether or not his bride is going to find out that he was behind her kidnapping. Lucas questions if she’s suggesting he tell Sami the truth. Kate says no and suggests he get rid of this stress since he’s already blown his sobriety. Lucas declares that as soon as he marries Sami, the stress will be gone. Kate argues that he knows better than to pin his emotional well being on Sami Brady. Kate brings up Philip and how he got consumed with his feelings for Chloe and it didn’t make him happy or relieve his stress, it just released a terrible stream of dark impulses. Lucas asks if she thinks he’s going to snap and end up in a mental institution like Philip. Kate complains that Philip didn’t snap, he just had issues that he needed help for. Kate cries that she’s just worried. Lucas tells her to stop and shouts that she has no reason to be worried. Lucas cries that he would never do anything to Abigail as she’s his niece and he would never hurt her like that. Lucas says he respects and loves her and she was a great mother. Lucas declares that if he had anything to do with Abigail’s death then he couldn’t go on. Kate hugs Lucas as they both cry. Kate knows how hard this is for him. Lucas cries that he feels ashamed about what he did and horrible about kidnapping Sami. Lucas insists that Sami will never find out and this will be a whole new chapter in their lives. Lucas declares that he can’t take it back but he can promise to be the best husband he could possibly be to make it up to her. Kate assures that she wants that for him as his happiness means everything to her. Lucas responds that Sami means everything to him. Lucas asks if that means he has Kate’s blessing. Kate gives her blessing and her undying support. Kate tells Lucas that she loves him so much as she hugs him. Kate tells Lucas to take care of himself as she then exits the room.

EJ questions Sami wanting to spend the rest of her days married to her very own kidnapper. Sami argues that she’s divorcing him. EJ reminds her that his conviction was overturned. Sami says that doesn’t prove his innocence. EJ asks when she’s going to wake up and see what’s staring her in the face. Sami complains about EJ’s crazy conspiracy theories about Lucas and says he’s just doing that to deflect from his own guilt. Sami calls EJ the psychopath who kidnapped her and lied to her about it. Belle intervenes and says she thinks Sami is wrong. Sami argues that Belle is his lawyer who got him off on the charges. Belle points out that EJ was framed by a very powerful force. Sami remarks that was just making sure a guilty man was sentenced to prison. EJ says Sami has to see reason. Sami responds that no one will ever change her mind that EJ was the one who kidnapped her.

Eric tells Roman that he’s not about to meddle with Nicole’s relationship. Roman says no one is saying he should and just that he should make a decision. Eric argues that he’s already made his decision. Roman asks if he’s sure because he can tell he’s still thinking things over. Roman brings up how nothing stands in between Sami and what she wants. Roman says he likes Rafe a lot and he’s a really good guy and friend, but that doesn’t mean he is who Nicole is supposed to be with. Eric says he and Nicole had their chance and they saw how that ended up. Roman argues that Nicole and Rafe had their chance to get married too but they didn’t and postponed the wedding since Rafe is leading the investigation in to Abigail’s death. Eric feels that means Rafe has his priorities in order. Roman feels it also means that if Eric still has feelings for Nicole, he’s got time to do something about it. Roman adds that he wouldn’t want to miss the chance to say something or talk to her about it, so that he doesn’t regret it down the road.

Rafe thinks it’s great that Abe and Paulina got married when they could because with Lani confessing, you never know when life could change in an instant. Nicole says that their situation is nothing like Abe and Paulina’s, so she doesn’t want Rafe to feel like he has to make big plans for their wedding since he’s under enough pressure with the investigation. Rafe assures he’s not feeling the pressure about that and asks if this is about something else. Nicole thinks back to Kate questioning Eric about his feelings for Nicole. Rafe then asks Nicole if she’s avoiding making wedding plans because she doesn’t want to get married.

Chad talks to John about how he never got to take Abigail to all the places he wanted to because either they couldn’t get away or the kids were in school, so they always just put it off and thought they had all this time. Chad says their last conversation was about taking the kids to a movie and taking a trip to Boston to surprise Jack for his birthday. Chad recalls that Abigail wanted to go that night but it seemed so last minute and he thought it would’ve been too much work to get the kids together and go to the airport, so they agreed to go the following morning. Chad cries that a day made all the difference in the world. Chad tells John that if they had just gone to Boston that night, Abigail would still be alive. Chad says he took the kids to the movie and left Abigail alone. John assures there’s no way Chad could have known what was going to happen. John asks what the last thing Chad and Abigail said to each other before he left for the movies. Chad cries that Abigail told him that she loved him and he said he loved her too. Chad says it melts his heart and feels he took her for granted. Chad says if he had only known, he wouldn’t have wasted so much time on anything but loving her and letting her know that she was his everything. John encourages that she knew as Chad cries.

EJ tells Sami that if she wants to be an idiot, she can be his guest. EJ then quickly signs the divorce papers and asks if she’s satisfied. Sami confirms that she is as that’s exactly what she wanted. Sami warns Belle not to get chained up in the basement if she plans on staying in this house any longer. Sami then exits the mansion.

Marlena comes back in and hopes she’s not interrupting. Chad asks if she talked to the kids. Marlena confirms that she did and that Thomas is pretty focused on the race car set but Charlotte asked if it was true that her mom had died which she confirmed. Marlena admits that Charlotte cried but a moment later she was in denial and said she knew her mom would be coming home. Chad decides he should go get them. Marlena says they are playing so well and distracted while it’s nearly their bedtime, so she suggests letting the kids stay one more night. Chad asks if she’s sure. John assures that they love the kids. Chad thanks them. Marlena adds that she thinks Chad should stay as well. Chad doesn’t want to impose but they insist they would love to have him. Chad tearfully thanks them and admits that would be good.

Eric gets dressed up and goes to Nicole’s. He prepares to knock on the door when Nicole then comes home and asks what he’s doing here. Eric says he came to ask her something. Nicole asks if it can wait since now’s not a really good time. Eric asks if everything is okay. Rafe arrives with champagne. Eric comments that it looks like they are going to celebrate. Rafe confirms they are as Nicole then announces that they just got married at the courthouse. Eric is shocked but says that’s great and congratulates them. Eric decides he will leave them alone to celebrate their wedding night and quickly walks away. Rafe and Nicole then kiss.

Sami returns to Lucas at the Salem Inn, who asks how it went. Sami calls it a success as EJ signed the papers which Lucas calls perfect. Lucas says he had a whole speech planned but figured he would just cut to the chase. Lucas then gets down on one knee and proposes to Sami. Sami says yes to marrying him again. Lucas puts the ring on her finger and says it fits perfectly. Sami says just like him as they kiss and hug.

EJ tells Belle that now that he’s signed the divorce papers, all that’s left is for Sami to file them and then he’ll be divorced and she will be Lucas’s problem. EJ asks Belle where they were as he wants to continue where they left off but Belle stops him and questions what he’s doing.

Young & The Restless Update

Recap written by Christine

At Crimson Lights, Sharon told Nick that she saw Victor and Adam’s press conference. Sharon asked Nick if he knew in advance that it was going to happen. He said he was kept in the loop this time. She was surprised when he told her that Victoria was already gone. She hoped he got a chance to tell Victoria he’d always be there for her. He did, and he was grateful, although he completely disagreed with Victoria’s decision. He felt frustrated with the whole family, though. He didn’t like that Victor put Adam in the CEO’s seat after what happened last time, and he thought it was foolish to shove Adam into Victoria’s seat before it even got cold.

Sharon thought this Newman family drama sounded ominous. Nick felt like Adam and Victor were only thinking about themselves, and not the company. Nick conceded that Adam had the capacity to do a great job, but his desire to ascend came from a selfish place. Sharon wasn’t trying to defend Adam, but she suggested Nick was being too hard on his brother. Nick said Adam didn’t give a damn what happened to Victoria – he’d just patiently waited to swoop in and take her job. Sharon suggested Adam was concerned the company would suffer. Nick said that Adam’s motives didn’t matter, since this was Victor’s call. He stated that Victor could’ve let Nikki run the company, or even temporarily run the company again himself.

Nick and Sharon acknowledged the fact that Victor and Nikki hoped Victoria would run back to town because Adam was CEO. Sharon asked where that would leave Adam. Nick said that Adam was no dummy, and he surely had his eyes wide open and was planning to prove he was the right man for the job. Nick didn’t see that happening. Nick said Nikki, Victor, Victoria and Adam were all working an angle and acting on emotion, and he thought they all needed to take a step back and figure out the next best move to make. Nick lamented that he didn’t have an official role at Newman other than his board seat, which meant he didn’t have more influence over crises when they popped up. He wanted that to change. Sharon asked if Nick was considering going back to Newman.

Nick wasn’t seriously considering throwing his hat back in the ring at Newman. He just wanted to be more than some voice offering up his thoughts from the outside. Sharon thought Nick wanted nothing to do with Newman. Nick thought that too, but this situation had him rethinking some stuff. For awhile, everything was going great – Victoria was running Newman, with Nikki as her right hand man, and Victor in an advisory role, and Adam had been at Newman Media. He was nervous about how this was going to play out in his family and in the eyes of the business world.

Mariah and Tessa were at their place. Tessa decided not to play her guitar, since Mariah was working remotely, but Mariah loved working with a private concert in the background, just like she loved calling Tessa her wife. Tessa was curiuos what Mariah was working on. Mariah said the marketing team was getting up to speed on the fashion industry, because Jabot acquired Marchetti. Mariah was glad Kyle and Harrison were staying. She was even happy Summer was staying too. Tessa commented on how far Mariah had come. Mariah said that also meant Kyle’s mom Diane would be sticking around, and that was complicated for a lot of people in Genoa City.

Mariah and Tessa wanted to be there for Kyle if he needed them. Mariah knew what it was like to have your mother come into your life after you were an adult. Tessa wanted tea and honey, but they were all out. Mariah was surprised since they had quite a lot the other day. Tessa’s throat was still sore, and she’d drank all of it. Concerned, Mariah asked if it hurt to sing. Tessa said not really. She said she’d just been resting her voice, because she’d been singing a lot. She figured it was probably just allergies. Mariah noted that Tessa’s throat had been sore since their honeymoon. She thought Tessa should see a doctor, but Tessa was sure it was nothing.

Tessa and Mariah went downstairs and talked to Nick and Sharon. When Sharon heard Tessa’s throat was still sore, she recommended visiting a doctor. Mariah was pleased because she knew someone would agree with her. Sharon said that Tessa was her daughter in law, so she was going to give her some motherly advice – get this checked out. Sharon said there was no harm in making an appointment. Nick teased that if Tessa made the appointment, she’d get Mariah to stop bugging her about this. Sharon said that love was the most important part of marriage, but compromise was right up there. Mariah said that one day, Tessa would need her to compromise on something, and she’d do it gladly, for their relationship. Tessa said she’d hold Mariah to that, since they had witnesses. Sighing, Tessa agreed to call the doctor.

Mariah was glad Tessa was able to get an appointment today. She thanked Sharon and Nick for encouraging Tessa to get a check up. Mariah saw the look between them earlier and wondered if something was wrong. Nick was sure Mariah saw the press conference. She was surprised Victoria was out and Adam was in. he said his family liked to keep people on their toes. She surmised that he didn’t want to discuss this, so she wished him luck with whatever he was going through. Her job called, and she left to answer. Sharon never thought she and Nick would be having this conversation about him and Newman again. He was shocked to be having the discussion again too, but he had a long history at Newman. She said he’d left Newman a lot over the years. She’d been proud when he left and extricated himself from the drama, for what she thought was the last time. She said he embraced becoming his own man and flourished at New Hope, and now Noah was there. He wasn’t making any decisions yet.

Nick said, hypothetically, if he’d stayed at Newman, he would’ve been in a better position to protect his sister’s CEO seat. He would’ve also been able to do more to prevent Victor from pitting Victoria against Adam, while also supporting his mother. She said he was the voice of reason in the family. He admitted he’d made a lot of mistakes, but he thought everyone in the family thought he meant well. He thought it was ironic that he was neutral because he’d been able to keep his distance from the company for so long. She asked if he’d feel more satisfied taking a larger role at Newman or if he’d prefer maintaining the distance that served him so well until now. Sharon encouraged Nick to trust his instincts. She believed in and supported him. Nick got a call from Victor, summoning him to a meeting. Victor wouldn’t say what it was about, but only that it couldn’t wait.

Mariah and Tessa met at home after the appointment. Tessa was upset, because she’d received a preliminary diagnosis of vocal cord nodules. She had to go to a specialist for confirmation, and she might need surgery. Tessa was near tears. She might have to drop out of the summer tour, and what would happen to her career? What would happen to her voice long term? Mariah was there with comfort and support. Mariah believed with all her heart that Tessa would be singing and selling out venues for years to come.

Jack and Diane were at his house. He got a text from Phyllis asking to meet and talk. Jack told Diane he had something to do. She asked if she could take Harrison to the park, and he said that was fine, since Kyle and Summer were busy. She went upstairs to get their grandson. Jack texted Phyllis asking what else was left to say. Phyllis was in her suite when she got the text. She immediately called him, and he answered. She asked if they were going to let this thing with Diane ruin the progress they made. He said this thing was between the two of them, not Diane. She admitted he was right, but she still wanted to talk. He agreed to meet her.

Allie invited Noah for a run in the park. He came, and they went on their jog. Afterward, Noah told Allie that he considered himself a decent athlete, but she was really fast. She said she ran almost every day – it was one of her things. He wished he had a routine, but he’d always needed to be inspired to get stuff done. She suggested he could find inspiration in the way she just kicked his butt. Diane showed up and approached Allie and Noah, while Harrison was on the playground.

Diane was pleased Allie found a young person to hang out with. She was sure that Noah could introduce Allie to more people their age. Noah didn’t think that was Diane’s business. Allie said Diane was just being friendly. Diane said that she’d thought Noah was okay with her since he was fine the last time they met. Noah said Diane did some seriously messed up stuff to people he cared about, and he wasn’t getting over it any time soon. Diane understood. Allie couldn’t speak to Diane’s past, but thanks to Diane, she had a big beautiful family instead of being alone in the world. Noah thought the way Diane went about it was sketchy. Allie agreed, but she also thought Diane had changed. Diane was grateful and touched, but she said she had to face these attacks because she did some terrible things, and she could take it, because spending time with her son and grandson was worth it. Diane went to get Harrison.

Jack went to Phyllis’s place. He warned her in advance that things weren’t going to change between them. She said okay. She offered him wine. He thought it was a little early for that. She poured a glass and asked him not to make her drink alone. “This isn’t gonna work, Red” he told her. She thought he knew better than to count her out. Phyllis had done a lot of thinking in Savannah about how she flaunted their relationship to stick it to Diane. She hated that he thought she used him. She had no justification for her actions, but old wounds and insecurities were getting the better of her. He said she talked a great game, but he’d heard this before. He’d recently been reminded she was a master at faking sincerity. She said she was wearing her heart on her sleeve, and she was losing it right now. She regretted her actions. She couldn’t believe she blew things up when they were getting so close. Jack said they just had a couple of passionate encounters, prompted by the return of the woman she hated; they weren’t beginning a relationship. He said they’d a moment to imagine what could’ve been. That’s what it had been for him, but he thought that for her, it was a calculated move to one-up Diane.

You only regret what you did because it backfired,” Jack contended. He thought that Phyllis had changed, but as soon as Diane returned, so did the Phyllis of years ago. He wasn’t going to make that mistake again. He told her she’d have to accept that what they had was over. She insisted that she had changed, and she vowed to prove it to him. Phyllis said she was flawed, like everyone else, but she went and extended an olive branch to that woman, because it was best for everyone. Jack heard the real reason for that meeting was Summer. He assumed Summer had to drag Phyllis there, kicking and screaming. Phyllis said she went of her own volition. Jack doubted the veracity of this truce. She said it was very difficult to say all that to Diane, but she did it for the greater good of everyone. He let her know that didn’t make him change his mind about being with her. She brought up their time in California and asked if he didn’t see the deeper connection in their relationship. He said that they connected as friends. He said he should’ve settled for that, but he let his desire get in the way, and now he may have destroyed the friendship. She quickly said they were still friends. She was adamant that this wasn’t how the story ended for them.

Phyllis said Jack knew her better than anyone. She implored him to look in her eyes. “Don’t you see the truth?,” she asked. He replied that he did see the truth, but that wasn’t the point. She asked what she was missing. He said she was missing the root of all this. He told her to look back at the last few years – her relationships with men had been a disaster. She thought that was low. He was talking about things with Billy, Nick and himself. He said that things were going great with Nick, and just as it went south, she turned to Jack. He said just as it seemed like they’d be together, she sabotaged things. She said it was because of Diane. She swore she’d let the feud with Diane go. He said she’d tried to break the pattern in the past, but maybe this was just part of who she was. He felt like no matter who she was with, it was never enough. She didn’t think he meant that, but he said he did. He asked why she kept getting in her own way and why she couldn’t fully embrace happiness and fulfillment. He said that for her, it was about the chase, and never about actually having something. He left. She picked up her wine glass.

Noah and Allie went to Crimson Lights on the patio. He apologized for making her uncomfortable earlier with Diane. He’d thought he had gotten over what Diane did, but today, all the stuff she put his family through came flooding back. He said that Diane was causing strife just by showing her face around here again. Allie didn’t think that last part was Diane’s fault. Noah asked what made Allie think Diane deserved a second chance, when she didn’t even know what Diane did. Allie said Diane admitted she’d made the town very mad. Allie understood why he felt so strongly about her. He said he couldn’t pretend nothing happened. She said she’d never do that, but she believed forgiveness was important. She said that so much would’ve changed if her dad had found a way to forgive Jack. Her whole family would’ve been in her life from the beginning, and when her dad died, he would’ve had more people than her by his bedside. She thought life could be really lonely without forgiveness and trust. He thought that was a healthy way to look at things.

Back at the park, Diane watched Harrison play, and she had a flashback to talking with Allie in LA. Allie asked what Diane hoped for if she saw Kyle. Diane had hoped to be Kyle’s mother again in every way. She wanted to dote on his child and have Sunday breakfasts at the Abbott house. She told Allie that the Abbotts were a big and loving family, and there was no bigger place in the world. In the present, Diane looked content.

Sami went to see EJ and found him with Belle. She wasn’t happy to see them together. She told him that she had divorce papers for him to sign. Chad talked to John about losing Abby. John told him what he went through when he lost Isabella. Sami continued to tell EJ that he should sign the papers.

Ashland: Good morning.

Victoria: Good morning. There’s coffee.

Ashland: Well, thank you very much. Look at you, still in your robe, getting a late start. Did you not sleep well?

Victoria: Oh, no, I slept like a baby. I just wanted to enjoy a leisurely morning. There’s no need to rush into the office.

Ashland: Ah, well, I’m — I’m glad you’re getting a chance to relax, especially after the stress of the last few months.

Victoria: Are you hungry? Do you want to order some breakfast?

Ashland: Well, actually, i was gonna ask if you wanted to go out to brunch, you know, at that cute little café we both love on the upper east side.

Victoria: Well, I guess you haven’t checked the news. The whole business world is counting down to the big press event announcing my successor.

Ashland: Actually, I did read that last night before I went to bed, but I wasn’t sure if you had any interest in watching it.

Victoria: On the contrary. I’m gonna be glued to this tablet for the duration. I would not miss one minute of it.


Adam: Well, I could not be more pleased to be taking the helm of the company now. First things first, I have to give due credit to my sister for having the foresight to pull together the resources so we could thrive during these challenging times. Our talented executive team, cutting-edge technology, and amazing portfolio of intellectual property, and our unmatched global reach. My mission will be to integrate those assets to maximize our profit potential. At the same time, keeping with the values and the philosophy of our founder, my father, victor Newman, who has always been at the heart of our company’s success.

Ashland: “My sister went on a shopping spree, but I’m the only one who knows what to do with all the stuff.” And look at him, he’s still kissing up to Victor, even after he’s gotten the gig. Haven’t you had enough of this?

Victoria: Almost.

Adam: …Because I am leaving Newman Media in the very capable hands of my former COO and now CEO, Sally Spectra. And we’re available to take any questions you have.

Victoria: Okay, I am done. And you know what? My father deserves everything that Adam and Sally are gonna put him through. Let’s go. Let’s get to our meeting, shall we?

Michael: I have one word of advice for you — patience.

Diane: That’s unusually succinct for you.

Michael: Look, you can’t force everyone to come around, but if you keep being the best version of yourself, they’ll have to acknowledge eventually that you’ve changed. Whether they’ll admit it to your face or not.

Diane: How long did it take you to convince everyone you’d evolved?

Michael: That’s beside the point.

Diane: So what is the point?

Michael: Anything is possible. Look, I reinvented myself. It was a long and hard journey. But it was worth it. And now I have the life of my dreams.

Diane: I would exactly put “thrown into a South American jail for doing victor Newman’s dirty work” on my vision board, but, hey, to each his own.

Michael: No, no, alright. My job keeps my life interesting. I was talking more about my personal life. I love Lauren now more than i did the day I married her.

 Diane  :Aww. That is disturbingly sweet.


Phyllis: How did you know i was there?

Michael: My “Phyllis-dar” is well honed. If you’re within a 50-yard radius of me, I know it.

Phyllis: Oh. That’s odd.

Michael: So is eavesdropping. So, what the hell’s going on? I thought you were supposed to be in Savannah.

Phyllis: I was. Now I am back.

Michael: And you’re really following Diane around and spying on her?

Phyllis: [Scoffs] Well, when you say it like that, it’s so dramatic. No, I was just, you know, looking around, getting the lay of the land, if you will.

Michael: Nothing’s changed since you left.

Phyllis: Oh, I beg to differ. A lot has changed. Yeah, some of my close, personal friends have seemed to, mm, uh, forgive Diane for her past deeds.

Michael: For Pete’s sake, will you stop lurking around in the shrubbery and acting like some crazed stalker from an “I Love Lucy” episode and maybe, maybe face the fact that Diane has changed, like you have claimed that you have more than once.

Jill: No, that’s okay. Ashland is a vile human being. I expected a little bit better of Victoria, but, honey, I mean, if — it’s her life. If she’s willing to throw it away on a man who’s not worthy of her, I — c’est la vie.

Billy: “C’est la vie”? How do you say that? You don’t expect me to sit here and just let it happen.

Jill: Oh, you just stop it. I know what you’re about to say. This is no longer your battle to fight.

Billy: Oh God, you sound exactly like Lily.

Jill: Well, I take that as a compliment.

Billy: How do you not expect me to be concerned about this? This directly affects the wellbeing of my kids.

Jill: Well, you used them as an excuse the last time, when you were involved with that Jesse Gaines debacle, and you were trying to stop Victoria’s wedding. Lily was right to call you out. There’s no way on earth that Victoria would put her children in danger. Look at me. You’ve got to let this go, Billy, and also, if you mess this up with Lily, I will never forgive you.


Michael: I can’t get over it — you and I, together in the same room.

Lauren: [Chuckles]

Michael: No, no, no, just it’s such a rare occurrence. I mean, here I am working very reasonable hours, courtesy of — wait for it — Victor, while your career is busier than ever. Oh, the irony.

Lauren: You know, you at least know where I am. I’m not in some Peruvian jail somewhere, okay?

Adam: There’s no way that you would simply let Victoria walk away from the family, fly off with Ashland Locke to who knows where, doing God knows what. No, this — this is a message. This job is what Victoria has always wanted, and now you’re just handing it over to me. I’m the last person she would ever want to sit in this chair because she knows I would have no problem dismantling her signature accomplishments if it did not align with my vision for the company. My very presence here is a jolt to her ego, it’s a slap in the face to bring her back to reality.

Victor: I always knew you were a very smart boy. But you cannot predict her reaction.

Adam: Why — why are we even doing this dance? Why are you even bothering denying it? Look, I don’t care why I’m suddenly CEO. I will play my part… better than you ever imagined.


Adam: Yes, I was CEO for a time when we all believed that you had died. I stepped in to continue your legacy. I felt a huge responsibility to preserve what you had built. I was determined to do it my way, and I was proud, even if i didn’t want to admit it.

Victor: You were arrogant, son.

Adam: Undeniably. I alienated people that were trying to help me. But then one day you walked through that door, alive and well, and you were determined to take back control.

Victor: I was appalled by your methods.

Adam: Rightly so. I was disgusted by them in retrospect. But I got results.

Victor: You did.

Adam: It was not my time. I had a lot to learn. But we are different men now. I have the temperament. I have the skill. I have the drive. I am the one that should be at Newman. I’m the one that should lead this company into the next decade. Someone that actually cares about preserving your legacy, dad. I am here. I am ready. I am willing. I’m a proven contender. If you let me do this, I swear to you I will do it better than vic–

Michael: There you are. I got your message. You wanted to discuss something.

Victor: Michael.

Adam: Yeah, come right on in. Don’t bother knocking.

Kyle: Here you go, babe.

Summer: Thank you.

Kyle: Mmm. I missed the iced tea when we were in Italy. I mean, how is the iced coffee in Milan so good but the iced tea was terrible?

Summer: I don’t know, it’s one of life’s great mysteries.

Kyle: You know, what I miss the most in Milan is the street food. Just being able to walk around and get anything anytime — sweet, savory.

[ Chuckles ] Harrison loved that gelato.

Summer: We all loved the gelato.

Kyle: Oh, the guy in the piazza with the fresh and the cart — oh, the best ravioli you’ve ever had for 5 euros.

Summer: You sound hungry.

Kyle: Oh, I wasn’t until i started reminiscing. I guess we’re just gonna have to move back to Milan. For the ravioli.

Summer:  Don’t even joke about this.

Kyle: [ Chuckles ] I’m sorry.


Kyle: This will be a moot point by the time Phyllis gets back. She’ll have cooled off.

Summer: No one cools off in Georgia in June.

Kyle: You know what I mean.

Summer: I know what you mean. I also know what Daniel means when he says that mom’s been moody. It means that she’s been stewing over what happened between her and Jack. She might even come back more upset.

Kyle: We do not want that.

Summer: No, we don’t. But what about your mom?

Kyle: What do you mean?

Summer: Is there a way that we could get her out of town for a while? I mean, doesn’t she need to go back to LA and tie up some loose ends or something?

Kyle: [ Sighs ] I don’t think she’s gonna go for that. She feels like we finally reconnected. She’s getting to spend some time with Harrison. She’s even talked about putting roots down in Genoa City. She even asked me to help her find a job.

Summer: Really? What — what does she want to do?

Kyle: She mentioned PR. Apparently back in California, she took some classes, but we didn’t get into the details. And I didn’t make any promises. My point is she’s ready to settle down here. Maybe we can get Phyllis to hire her at the hotel.

[ Chuckles ] You are not amused by any of my jokes today.

Summer: No, no. That one was worse than the ravioli joke. Kyle, come on. This is serious.

Kyle: I know. But what more can we do? I think we should focus on things we can control. Like finding a new CEO at Marchetti. The deal with Jabot is about to be finalized, and we need someone in place — the sooner, the better.

    TARGETING AMERICANS – For the past six years, U.S. diplomats stationed in foreign countries have been reporting a series of neurological symptoms, now known as “Havana Syndrome.” Scott Pelley reveals new reports of incidents that have occurred on U.S. soil, in a two-part story airing Sunday. High-ranking Homeland Security officials in the Trump administration say they were overcome with feelings of vertigo confusion, and memory loss while on White House grounds and in their Washington, D.C.-area homes. The incidents and symptoms they describe are similar to the “Havana Syndrome” that has been reported by American diplomats in foreign countries since 2016. The officials spoke to Pelley for Sunday’s report. Other stories of officials being stricken were corroborated by former national security adviser John Bolton, who fears there is a threat to the highest levels of the U.S. government. New CIA director William Burns tells Pelley why it has been difficult finding answers. Michael Rey and Oriana Zill de Granados are the producers. More Info and Sneak Peek

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Sally: Hard at it, I see.

Adam: “Integrate those formidable assets in order to maximize our profit potential” or “in order to achieve market dominance”?

Sally: Well, business is all about money, so I would go with the first one.

Adam: Thanks. That is what I was leaning towards. And…wow.

Sally: You like?

Adam: It is phenomenal. You are killing it with this new look. It’s understated, yet powerful.

Sally: Good, ’cause that is the exact vibe that I am going for, like I do this kind of thing every day. Get named ceo of a major media corporation in a press conference headlined by victor newman himself.

Adam: Well, get used to it.

Sally: Yeah. Well, if I can’t, I will just have to learn to fake it.

Adam: Hey, look, you don’t have to fake anything. You just have to smile and pretend like you have the biggest secret in the world, and the press will eat it up.

Sally: For you, this is familiar territory — being the man of the hour, giving speeches, fielding questions like a pro, it’s just a normal day.

Adam: Yeah, not quite. It’s a little less thrilling when it’s not your first time.

Sally: Okay, well, I won’t tell if you won’T.

Adam: It’s different now. It’s — it’s better than my previous stints running newman.

Sally: Well, for one thing, you have me.

Adam: Yes, and that has made a huge difference.

Sally: Trust me, today is going to be a turning point for both of us.

Michael: There you are. I’ve been looking all over for you. You’re not answering your phone.

Victor: Sit down. I don’t have much time. I have a press conference to go to.

Michael: Yeah, well, you’re gonna want to hear this. I found ashland and victoria.

Victor: Where are they?

Michael: New york, staying at a hotel.

Victor: So he went back to his home base.

Michael: There’s more. Ashland was spotted meeting with a high-end commercial real-estate broker.

Victor: [ Sighs ] So they’re looking for office space to start a new company.

Ashland: Good morning.

Victoria: Good morning. There’s coffee.

Ashland: Well, thank you very much. Look at you, still in your robe, getting a late start. Did you not sleep well?

Victoria: Oh, no, I slept like a baby. I just wanted to enjoy a leisurely morning. There’s no need to rush into the office.

Ashland: Ah, well, I’m — I’m glad you’re getting a chance to relax, especially after the stress of the last few months.

Victoria: Are you hungry? Do you want to order some breakfast?

Ashland: Well, actually, i was gonna ask if you wanted to go out to brunch, you know, at that cute little café we both love on the upper east side.

Victoria: Well, I guess you haven’t checked the news. The whole business world is counting down to the big press event announcing my successor.

Ashland: Actually, I did read that last night before I went to bed, but I wasn’t sure if you had any interest in watching it.

Victoria: On the contrary. I’m gonna be glued to this tablet for the duration. I would not miss one minute of it.

Jack: So that said, I really want your transition to marchetti to go smoothly.

Kyle: I am down with that. What do you need from me?

Jack: I want your thoughts on second-quarter projections, and then you’re pretty much done.

Kyle: That’s it? Seriously?

Jack: Yeah, I’ll handle the rest. My final offer, take it or leave it.

Kyle: Dad, are you sure?

Jack: I’m positive.

Kyle: You’re making this too easy for me.

Jack: You and summer are going to have your hands full wrapping up this acquisition, getting marchetti moved to the united states. The sooner you are in the ceo seat, the better for everyone.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Jack: Oh. There it is, the newman press conference will be in one hour, where victor will formally announce that adam will be taking the reins as ceo.

Kyle: Mm-hmm. Think he hired a skywriter?

Jack: Oh, there will definitely be the intended hoopla.

Kyle: Alright. Kind of ironic. You know, all this fanfare for adam as he ascends the newman throne, while over here you’re quietly shunting your son off to another division.

Jack: Oh, I seem to recall this was your idea. I am in no hurry to lose my partner at jabot.

Kyle: Sorry, you’re stuck with me. Marchetti is a jabot subsidiary.

Jack: Where you will be sole head honcho. I could not be any prouder of you.

Kyle: Thanks. I’m looking forward to the challenge and to be working with summer again. Feels like everything is coming together.

Jack: You worked hard and you earned it. And does that include diane, this “everything coming together”? I mean, I haven’t asked for a while. How are things going between the two of you? Is there a problem?

Summer: Ready to go?

Phyllis: Is it 9:00 already?

Summer: It is 9:03 to be exact.

Phyllis: Okay. I’m so slammed after my trip. I have so much work to do, and there’s a luncheon for the chamber of commerce in the ballroom, and —

Summer: Mom, you promised me that you were going to do this. I’ve already arranged it with diane.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Where are we meeting?

Summer: At the park. Neutral territory so that you can extend an olive branch.

Phyllis: Okay.

Summer: Please don’t tell me that you’re gonna back out at the last minute. You’ve got to know how important this is to me. To my whole family.

Phyllis: No, I’m — I’ll do it. Yeah, let’s do it, let’s do it. Let’s go. Oh.

Summer: And let’s go. Nope

Kyle: Mom and I are cool. We’ve been spending more time together.

Jack: Yeah?

Kyle: She’s been working hard to prove herself, hasn’t done anything wrong. At least not that I know of.

Jack: Well, there’s a curious way of expressing it. Wasn’t that long ago you were doing everything you could to give her the benefit of the doubt.

Kyle: Still am. Doesn’t mean I’m ready to wipe the slate clean.

Jack: Good. There is no rush. There is no deadline.

Kyle: I know. She accepts that, and we’re taking things slow.

Jack: I think you should. Deciding how much of a presence diane is gonna have in your life is a big decision, and one with lifelong implications.

Kyle: There’s a part of me that just wants to open my arms and let her all the way in and just cling to her until the wounds are healed like magic. And then I-I think back to when she was murdered. When I believed my mother was gone and never coming back. And some nights, in my room when I was finally alone, I would scream into my pillow ’cause i thought I had to be brave for everyone. And…to think about that kind of grief, at that age, it was exhausting. Exhausting. It was the most traumatic thing I’d ever been through. And to find out that it — it was all a lie inflicted on me by my own mother? Th-that — that’s not the kind of thing you get past overnight.

Jack: No, it’s not.

Kyle: She’s saying all the right things. She seems to mean them. She’s sentimental with harrison. Grateful to get to know her grandson.

Jack: But you’re having trouble trusting her completely?

Kyle: Dad, I want to, badly, but I’m wary. Because something will happen, and then I’ll wonder if it’s a warning sign. Like — like this thing with you and phyllis. And I don’t need to know details. It’s none of my business. But you admitted to summer and me that there’s a problem that ties back to my mother, and…i can’t help but wonder.

Jack: No, no, if diane is reverting to her old tricks, believe me, I will let you know. As far as this thing with phyllis and me, don’t let that change your evaluation. Look, these are two different issues.

Kyle: Okay. If you say so.

Ashland: You seem almost eager to watch the press conference.

Victoria: More like fascinated.

Ashland: And here I thought you’d be mostly irritated.

Victoria: Why? Because it’s rumored that my father might announce adam as my successor?

Ashland: Are you telling me that doesn’t bother you, not at all?

Victoria: I’m sure that my father would love it if I lost it over that and came racing back to defend my turf. I mean, it’s why he did it in the first place. Not because adam will run newman better than I will. It’s what he always does. He plays us against each other. It’s his usual move, and quite frankly, I find it tiresome. And I’m not falling for it.

Ashland: I’m just impressed that you’re so calm, so nonchalant, above it all.

Victoria: Well, I mean, come on, isn’t that why we left in the first place? So that I could break free of my father’s influence and stand strong on my own? Our patterns had just become so entrenched, and it had gotten to the point where I knew what he was gonna do before he’d even done it.

Ashland: There’s a certain satisfaction to that, being able to predict your rival’s every move. I’ve had that feeling myself from time to time.

Victoria: You know…no one’s ever gotten me the way that you do. I realized that about you when i first met you. It’s like we’re kindred spirits.

Ashland: I just wish I’d recognized that from the beginning, like you did.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] You’re a slow learner. I’ll adapt, don’t worry.

Ashland: [ Laughs ] Thank you for the effort.

Victoria: You’re worth it.

Ashland: Um…I’ll tell you what. Let me prove my value. Why don’t you order room service? I’m going to go change for the meeting, and then we will reconvene, sit right on this couch, and watch the press conference together, in case it’s a little tougher on you than you think.

Victoria: Oh, aren’t you thoughtful.

Ashland: I try.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ]

[ Cellphone rings ]

Nick: Vick. I’m so glad you called. Are you okay?

Victoria: I’m fine.

Can a cream really

reduce wrinkles?

Adam: You don’t think my statement’s too long?

Sally: No way. Reporters love meaty speeches to pull quotes from.

Adam: Well, when you’re right, you are right.

[ Sighs ]

Sally: You could cut the last sentence, maybe. Save that thought for the q&A.

Adam: Hmm. Much tighter ending. Got it.

Sally: [ Exhales sharply ]

Victor: Well…the moment’s almost upon us. The press is waiting to come in.

Sally: Time to get this show underway?

Adam: Actually, I would like a moment alone with my dad.

Sally: Sure thing. I will go schmooze the reporters. Take as much time as you need.

Victor: So, son, are you getting cold feet?

Adam: Ha.

Victor: Hmm?

Adam: Not at all.

Victor: Good.

Adam: I meant what I said. I plan to use my time at the helm, however long or short that is, to show you what I’m capable of, and I promise you, you will be impressed.

Victor: [ Chuckles ] Now, we both want what’s best for you, right? We both want you to excel.

Adam: Oh, there’s no worries about that. Feel like my whole life has been leading me to this moment, to this opportunity, and I plan to make the most of it.

Victor: I’m banking on that, son. I’m betting on you.

Victoria: The move has gone great. Everything is happening just as I hoped.

Nick: Are you ready to tell us where you are?

Victoria: I’m surprised you haven’t heard. I assumed dad would have sussed it out by now.

Nick: If he knows, he hasn’t said anything to me.

Victoria: We’re in new york, visiting ashland’s favorite haunts.

Nick: I should’ve guessed that.

Victoria: I gather that you won’t be making it to our brother’s coronation.

Nick: So you heard about that.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] I assume that adam is thrilled. All of his dreams are coming true.

Nick: Well, you’ll have to ask him. We — we haven’t talked about it.

Victoria: Well, please be sure to give him my congratulations when you see him, since you’re the only one in the family that I’m communicating with.

Nick: Vick, call mom. Alright? You know how much she worries.

Victoria: I know. I will when the time is right. I have to go now, okay?

Nick: Are you gonna watch the press conference? I hear they’re gonna live-stream it.

Victoria: Well, I doubt that ashland and I will have time. We’re meeting with some big investors to see if they’ll bankroll our new venture.

Nick: Are these connections of ashland’s?

Victoria: They’re mine, mostly.

Nick: Does that mean your plan is to set up a company that will compete against newman?

Victoria: Nicholas, I didn’t call you to talk about my future business. I just wanted to check in and let you know that I’m okay. I should get going now. I got to get ready for this meeting. I’ll talk to you soon, okay? Bye.

Nick: [ Sighs ]

Diane: Hello, summer. Don’t you look lovely. I love that top on you. And, phyllis, welcome back. I hope you had a nice time in georgia with your son and granddaughter.

Phyllis: I did. It was lovely. Thank you for asking.

Diane: Yeah, so what did you ladies want to meet about? Who would like to begin?

Summer: Well, while mom was out of town, she had a chance to do some thinking. Right?

Phyllis: Right. Um…well, I was able to center myself and gain perspective.

Diane: Really? That’s great. And so quickly. It took me years.

Phyllis: Ha, well, I’m a fast learner, and I mean, you… had a lot to work through.

Diane: I don’t know about that, because you strike me as someone with so many issues weighing you down.

Phyllis: Oh, do I? Really? Well, not really. No, no, I don’T. But what I realized is I just want to keep this calm…inside of me, and, um…I don’t want anger and resentment to fester and rot away inside. Like it’s done to you. You made it clear that you’re sticking in town. You’re gonna be at family events and such, so…yeah. I would just like to put the past where it needs to be — behind us. Starting today.

Diane: [ Chuckles ] Are you saying this is a fresh start for the two of us?

Phyllis: Well, I’m never gonna forget the things you’ve done to me.

Summer: Mom, but you can — you can forgive.

Diane: Right, the way so many people in town have forgiven you over the years for all the things you’ve done.

Phyllis: See? This is what I’m going to do. I’m not going to dwell on the things that you did to me. So just consider this a pact of non-aggression, a ceasefire, a detente.

Summer: Maybe something a little less war-like?

Phyllis: A truce.

Diane: Well, that is wonderful to hear. Thank you, phyllis, for sharing that with me. You just made my day. Hi, I’m denise.

Diane: I know this couldn’t have been easy for you, phyllis.

Summer: Well, you know, when you showed up with no warning, it brought up a lot of painful, unresolved issues for everyone.

Diane: Oh, I’m well aware, because pretty much everywhere i turn, people are there to remind me of the damage I’ve done. Not that I’m complaining. I know that I deserve every bit of their rage.

Phyllis: Oh, yeah, you most definitely do.

Diane: Which is why I find it so impressive that you found a way to let it go and make peace with me. It must be so freeing.

Phyllis: It must be freeing for you to know that you can cross one person off the long list you have of people who don’t want you in town.

Diane: Well, it does mean a great deal to me, especially, as you pointed out, we’re part of the same extended family, and it’s best for everyone if we get alonG.

Phyllis: Yeah, it is. You know, nobody has any reason to give you a second chance in this town. But I will. You know, it’s unfortunate for you, ’cause the probability of people giving you dirty looks and just the outright hostility that you will experience by staying in genoa city, that must be very difficult, but you know what, diane? I…I’m not gonna be a part of that. Because I will not put my daughter through that. My daughter and her husband. I will not make my daughter uncomfortable. I will not make her choose sides ever.

Diane: Excellent point. And while I realize you’re not doing this for me, I do appreciate the effort. Thank you.

Phyllis: Well, you’re welcome.

Diane: You know, I’m just really happy for you, phyllis, that you’ve reached this level of serenity and maturity.

[ Chuckles ] Comes as a complete surprise. Oh, I hope you don’t take that the wrong way.

Phyllis: Oh, absolutely not. Let’s go, alright?

Summer: Okay. Thank you for coming, diane.

Diane: Of course.

Summer: Shall we?

Phyllis: Sure, let’s go.

Victor: Thank you all for coming. Today I have an important announcement to make. As you know, newman enterprises has expanded enormously during the last year. We not only merged with locke communications group, but we acquired chancellor communications and newman media. All this was done under the very capable leadership of my daughter victoria. She’s done a wonderful job. Unfortunately, for personal reasons, she decided to step away. And today I’m naming my son adam as new chief executive officer of newman enterprises, effective immediately. As some of you may know, adam has been intimately acquainted with the various departments of this company, but only someone who gathered the knowledge that he did on wall street and someone who graduated from harvard business school was able to, many times, step in and steer this enormous ship whenever I asked him to. He’s exactly what we need right now. He’s bold, he’s innovative, he’s right for the job. Please welcome my son adam.

Ashland: I believe that last comment was aimed at you.

Victoria: Oh, no doubt. Did you notice how my father didn’t mention your name, not even once? It’s as if you’ve ceased to exist.

Ashland: I’m sure he wishes that was the case.

Adam: Well, I could not be more pleased to be taking the helm of the company now. First things first, I have to give due credit to my sister for having the foresight to pull together the resources so we could thrive during these challenging times. Our talented executive team, cutting-edge technology, and amazing portfolio of intellectual property, and our unmatched global reach. My mission will be to integrate those assets to maximize our profit potential. At the same time, keeping with the values and the philosophy of our founder, my father, victor newman, who has always been at the heart of our company’s success.

Ashland: “My sister went on a shopping spree, but I’m the only one who knows what to do with all the stuff.” And look at him, he’s still kissing up to victor, even after he’s gotten the gig. Haven’t you had enough of this?

Victoria: Almost.

Adam: …Because I am leaving newman media in the very capable hands of my former coo and now ceo, sally spectra. And we’re available to take any questions you have.

Victoria: Okay, I am done. And you know what? My father deserves everything that adam and sally are gonna put him through. Let’s go. Let’s get to our meeting, shall we?

Ashland: Okay. Well [Clears throat] After you.

Adam: Well, we settled on ceo and not “division president” partly because it had been my title, but mainly because of the level of responsibility that it takes to run a media entity of that size. Something that I have every confidence ms. Spectra will handle with her usual aplomb.

Nick: Can I see you outside? I heard from victoria.

Adam: Next question? (Vo) red lobster’s seafood summerfest is fire!

“The young and the restless”

will continue. D a woman’s right to choice, her right to make intensely personal decisions from her doctor, free from interference from politics. To reaffirm basic principles of equality, and reinforced the fundamental right of privacy, the right of each of us to choose how to live our lives. Now with roe gone, let’s be very clear: The health and life of women in this nation are now at risK. As chairman and ranking member of the senate judiciary committee, as vice president and now as president of the united states, I’ve studied this case carefully. I’ve overseen more supreme court confirmations than anyone today. Where this case was always discussed. I believe roe V. Wade was the correct decision. As a matter of constitutional law and application of the fundamental right to privacy and liberty in matters of family and personal autonomy. It was a decision on a complex matter, that drew a careful balance between a woman’s right to choose earlier in her pregnancy the states ability to regulate later in her pregnancy. A broad consensus that most americans of faith and backgrounds found acceptable, and had been the law of the land for most of the lifetime of americans today. And it was a constitutional principle upheld by justices appointed by democrat and republican presidents alike. Roe V. Wade was a 7-2 decision, written by a justice, appointed by a republican president, richard nixon. In the five decades that followed roe V. Wade, justices appointed by republican presidents, from eisenhower, nixon, reagan, and george W. Bush were among the justices that voted to uphold the principles set forth in roe V. Wade. It was three justices named by one president, donald trump, in the core of today’s decision to up end the scales of justice and eliminate a fundamental right for women in this country. Make no mistake, this decision is a culmination of a deliberate effort over decades to upset the balance of our law. It’s a realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the supreme court in my view. The court has done what it has never done before: Expressly take away a constitutional right that is so fundamental to so many americans that had already been recognized. The court’s decision to do so will have real and immediate consequences. State laws banning abortion are automatically taking effect today, jeopardizing the health of millions of women, some without exceptions. So extreme that the women can be punished for protecting their health. So extreme that women and girls were forced to bear their rapist’s child. A child of a consequence — it just stuns me. So extreme that doctors will be criminalized for fulfilling their duty to care. Imagine having a young woman having to carry a child of incest — as a consequence of incest with no option. Too often the casE. The poor women are going to be hit the hardest. It is cruel. In fact, the court laid out state laws criminalizing abortion that go back to the 1800s as a rational. The court literally taking america back 150 yearS. This is a sad day for the country, in my vieW. But it doesn’t mean that the fight is over. Let me be very clear and unambiguous: The only way we can secure a woman’s right to choose in the balance that existed is for congress to restore the protections of roe V. Wade as federal law. No executive action from the president can do that. And if congress, as it appears, lacks the votes to do that now, voters need to make their voices heard. This fall you must elect more senators and representatives who will codify a woman’s right to choose into federal law once agaiN. Elect more state leaders to protect this right at the local leveL. We need to restore the protections of roe as law of the land. We need to elect officials who will do that. This fall roe is on the ballot. Personal freedoms are on the ballot. The right to privacy, liberty, equality, they’re all on the ballot. Until then, I will do all in my power to protect a woman’s right in states where they will face the consequences of today’s decision. While the court’s decision cast a dark shadow over a large swath of the land, many states in this country still recognize a woman’s right to choose. So if a woman lives in a state that restricts abortion, the supreme court’s decision does not prevent her from traveling from her home state to the state that allows it. It does not prevent a doctor in that state from treating her. As the attorney general has made clear, women must remain free to travel safely to another state to seek care they need. My administration will defend that bedrock right. If any state or local official, high or low, tries to interfere with a woman’s exercise of her basic right to travel, i will do everything in my power to fight that deeply unamerican attack. My administration will also protect a woman’s access to medications that are approved by the F.D.A., The F.D.A., Like contraception, which is essential for preventive health care. If aprestone, which the F.D.A. Approved 20 years ago to safely end early pregnancies and is used to treat miscarriages — some states are saying they will try to ban or severely restrect access to this medications. But they’re looking to block the mail or search a person’s medicine cabinet or control a woman’s actions by tracking data on an app are wrong and extreme and out of touch with the majority of the americans. The american medical association, the american college of obstetricians and gon gon cologys, they say by limiting access to these medicines, morality will climb in america. That’s what they say. Today I’m directing the department of health and human services to take steps to ensure these critical medications are available to the fullest extent possible. And the politicians cannot interfere in the decisions that should be made between a woman and her doctor. My administration will remain vigilant as the implications of this decision play out. I’ve warned about how this decision risks the broader right to privacy for everyone. That’s because roe recognized the fundamental right to privacy. That has served as a basis for so many more rights that have come to take — we’ve come to take for granted, that are ingrained in the fabric of this country. The right to make the best decisions for your health. The right to use birth control. A married couple in the privacy of their bedroom, for god’s sakE. The right to marry the person you love. Justice thomas said as much today. He explicitly called to reconsider the right of marriage equality, the right of couples to make their choices on contraception. This extreme and dangerous path the court is now taking us on. Let me close with two points: First, I call on everyone, no matter how deeply they care about this decision, to keep all protests peaceful. Peaceful. Peaceful. No intimidation. Violence is never acceptable. Threats and intimidation are not speech. We must stand against violence in any form, regardless of your rationale. Second, I know so many of us are frustrated and disillusioned that the court has taken something away that is so fundamental. I know so many women are now going to face incredibly difficult sessions. I hear you. I support you. I stand with you. The consequences and the consensus of the american people, core principles of, quote,, quote,ofequality, liberty, dignity, and the stability of the rule of law demand that roe should not have been overturned. With this decision a conservative majority of the supreme court shows how extreme it is, how far removed they are from the majority of this country. They made the united states an outlier among developed nations of the world, but this decision must not be the final word. My administration will use all of its appropriate, lawful powers, but congress must act. And with your vote, you can act. You can have the final word. This is not over. Thank you very much. More to say on this in weeks to come. Thank yoU.

[Reporters. (Yelling) reporter yelling]O’connell: The president pledging to do everything in his power to protect women’s health. He says, let’s be clear, the health and life of women are now at risK. Let’s bring in nancy cordes. Nancy, what actions can the president take?

Reporter: We only heard him give one actual specific in that speecH. He says he is going to be directing the department of health and human services that abortion pills are more widely available, particularly to women who live in states where abortion is now illegal. What he did not say is whether he is going to push the F.D.A. To drop restrictions that currently limit the number of pharmacies that can provide those abortion pills. He didn’t announce any new executive orderS. It doesn’t mean those won’t happen in the days to come, but he didn’t lay out any specific plan right now to do things like issue travel vouchers to women so if they need to go a thousand miles to get an abortion, it can be a little cheaper for theM. He didn’t talk about giving service members time off if they live in a state that doesn’t allow abortions and they need to travel. So there are going to be a lot of questions on the minds of abortion rights activists about just how far he is willing to go personally. He says he is going to do everything he can. He called this ruling an extreme ideology and a tragic error, but we are still waiting for some of the details to be filled in.

O’connell: And, nancy, the president also making the case that this decision is not the final word. And he said congress should act, they could act, but he also said with your vote you can act. And laying out the case that this will be a central issue in the upcoming mid-term lacks elections.

Reporter: Very explicitly laying out a mid-term election message, saying that the only way to secure women’s rights is for congress to make the right to abortion a federal law. He said we don’t have the votes to do that right now, democrats don’t, so if people care about that, they need to vote in november and elect pro-abortion rights candidates at every level, at the state level and at the national level. That is an argument you’re already hearing today, norah, not just from the president of the united states but from the speaker of the house and virtually every democrat that has spoken so far.

O’connell: Nancy cordes at the white house. I want to bring in jan crawford because you heard him mention clarence thomas’ singular descent, in which he said he want to reconsider marriage equality. And they were saying this should go further.

Justice thomas has been the most conservative justice on the supreme court. He is the one who is willing to completely disregard precedent on a number of cases where other conservative justices are not. When you look at the majority opinion, which has five justices supporting the view, thomas is the only one. The other four say no, it does not. It could not be more clear. The right to contraception and the right to same-sex marriage — abortion is different because it involves a fetal life. There is an extensive analysis bulked up from the initial draft we saw where the majority is saying, no, we don’t agree with that. Thomas is only writing for himself.

O’donnell: Jan crawford. I want to bring in major garrett, who is there at the supreme court, which is a fortress with security, but also a number of protests.

Reporter: Norah, I’ve talked to protestors on both sides. They both use the same phrase: “This is an earthquake.” If so, this judicial earthquake has created a falt line right here in front of the supreme court. Those interested in this opinion have come in much larger numbers since 10:10 this morning. Some are curiosity-seekers, but some are deeply emotionally involved in this issue. I see tears on both sides, those who long opposed abortion rights, tears of gratitude, and those who support abortion rights, bitter tears about what the spreamplet supreme court has done. Americans coming in front of the supreme court, if you read the opinion today, the supreme court said don’t come here anymore. The supreme court has nothing more to say on abortion. Because they no longer recognize it as a constitutional right worthy of commentary. Go back to your states. But they’re coming here in larger numbers.

O’donnell: The president also calling for peaceful protests after the supreme court has struck down roe V. Wade. The president saying no intimidation or violence is ever acceptable. Our coverage will continue on cbs streaming, your local news, and we’ll have a wrap-up tonight on the “cbs evening news.” I’m norah o’donnell in for her to build a permanent life this close to you? I know that you’ve been hesitant to trust her, given the way that she abandoned you.

Kyle: I can’t erase all the things she put me through, and i don’t know if the scars will ever fade. But there’s no chance of that happening if I send her away without trying. I’ll wonder the rest of my life if I made the wrong choice.

Summer: Okay. Well, we’ll do our best and we’ll see what happens.

Jack: I have no idea what phyllis’ thinking is where you’re concerned.

Diane: Fair enough.

Jack: I do know there’s a better chance of her keeping her word if you don’t provoke her — something you’re very good at, something you seem to relish.

Diane: On my honor — and i do believe I have some now — i have no intention of kicking that hornets’ nest. Why would I?

Jack: Is that a real question?

Diane: [ Sighs ] I’m just thrilled that the woman has volunteered to back off. And as you’ve said, it brings the number down of people in this town who are out for my blood.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Jack: Excuse me, please.

Victoria: Well, I think that that meeting went rather well, don’t you?

Ashland: Extremely well, yes.

Victoria: I got the feeling that we’re gonna get some positive responses to our proposal.

Ashland: I just love the way the presentation went, the way we were playing off of each other’s ideas. I just — I can’t wait to be running a company with you again.

Victoria: Me too.
