Xander, I just wanted to say.

Something’s wrong. Huh? I need to take your top off. I need to see my work. Well, I need to see too. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. I need to know if you’re wearing a wire

from me. Oh, you shouldn’t have Ali. Hey, so where are you going with these flowers? Oh, are you going to see Stephanie? Are you guys back on track now? Now? No, but with a little luck by the end of the night.

Is it a bad time? My dad just left, so No, no, your timing is fine. Well, I, uh, I hope you think that after I tell you why it came, sounds serious. Yeah. Well it is, uh, actually, I mean, it is to me. Jack and I, uh, just had a long talk and he had some advice about what us.

As one of Dr. Marlena Evans Blacks nearest and dearest friends, I am honored to be here to mourn the loss of such a wonderful woman,

Anna. Hi. Uh, sorry. You must have not heard the doorbell. Oh, I’m sorry, Chloe. I was, I was just working on my eulogy for Marlena. Oh, okay. I won’t keep you then. Um, I’m here to see Stephan. Have you seen him around? You know, I haven’t, but I’m sure he must be here somewhere. Oh. Oh. Thank God. He’s, can you hear me Gabby?

You okay? Are you are? Where are we? Why am I tied up somebody on timey? What? You don’t remember why you’re here. You faster? What have you done to him? You were supposed to bring his memories back. Now take them away

like sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

So you and Stephan, huh? I heard the two of you had gotten involved. Yeah, we, we were definitely involved. Well, that’s wonderful. I’m very happy for both of you. Is it serious? Oh, I’m sorry. There I go prying again. You know, you don’t have to answer that. No, no. It, it’s, it’s okay. Yeah. Um, we, we were serious, but some circumstances have changed and I’m actually here to tell Stephan that I think that he and I.

Shouldn’t see each other anymore.

What do my memories have to do with any of this? What did you do? I did Of me stop my fault. I did no access to better equipment. Man, look at me. Look at my face. Okay, I see you, but I, I still don’t get any of this. You need to really see me okay. Not just who I am, but what I mean to you. Sorry. We’re, we’re, that’s why we’re here in the basement of your home too.

Undo what Rolf did to you. I, I, I need to make sure that it worked, that there aren’t any side effects. I love you so much and I’m just trying to help. Do you understand that, Stephen? Please? Do you understand?

Well, okay. Wait, wait, wait. You’re just gonna go in there. Cult? Mm-hmm. , like you haven’t sent her a text or a call to warn her that you’re coming? Mm-hmm. ? No point. Sorry. Stephanie’s been ignoring my calls. Okay. So what makes you think she’s gonna agree to actually seeing you? What? Well, because I just spoke to Paulina Price and I told her everything.

I told her how I turned off Steph’s phone. when Chad was trying to call her and I kept her from seeing her mother before she passed. Hmm. I bet Paul had a lot to say about that. Yeah, she did. She definitely let me know her thoughts about me, which weren’t much, but she also shared a little bit about her life and some of the mistakes that she made, like giving up her daughter Lonnie, when she was young.

The whole point that she was trying to make to me was that Lonnie forgave her. So Paulina gave me hope that maybe I could be forgiven for the awful things that I’ve done. Obviously not as serious, but still. She also told me that if I wanted to apologize to Stephanie, I needed to do it the right way in person persuasively.

So flowers, check apology letter. And my best wounded puppy dog look to top it all off . Okay. Well it seems like you’ve really thought of everything. Yeah, Ali. I just really hope it’s not too late to make this happen.

Um, so Jack gave you advice about you and me. I’m, I’m not sure I understand. Yeah. Um, I shouldn’t have, uh, blurted it out that way. That was. Weird. I think I’m just a, I’m a little nervous. It’s hot in here. Can I, I’m gonna take on my coat, if that’s okay. Yeah.


yeah, so I don’t think I’m gonna say what I rehearse because it’ll probably just come out as, as mosh I’m, I’m just gonna go ahead and shoot from the hip, you know, just say kind of what I’m thinking off the, off the top of my head, if that’s okay. Yeah, it’s okay. So, so I know that I told you that, um, that I didn’t know if or when I would be ready to move on from Abigail.

Um, I said that it would probably be never, but, um, but I’m, I’m. I am hoping now,

really hoping that you and I can have a future anyway.

Oh, what bloody are you talking about? Wow. Your best bud. Leo was here a while back. He wanted to give me a heads up that he’s gonna cut a deal, testify to the grand. I am the one that kidnapped Susan and Bonnie. So I gave him a heads up that if he went through with it, it’d be his last act on this earth.

And how does that have anything to do with me? Well, it’s just a wee bit of a coincidence, isn’t it? That his bestie Guinevere shows up my door out of the blue. Are you here to finish what he started? Get Melinda trash. What? She needs to send a zander down the river. Got it. Picture it. Now you leore and the da.

Let Stitch Sander up to take a for. I mean, why not? He’s a bloody loser. Anyway.

Hi Mommy. I’m so sorry. I didn’t think anyone was in here. No, it’s okay. You can come in. I’m just, uh, I’m trying to figure out what to say. Kayla’s funeral, you know, I just can’t seem to find the right words.

She was an extraordinary woman and doctor. And it’s a tragedy that she’s gone. I still can’t believe it. Me neither.

Are you gonna speak at the funeral too? Oh, um, these aren’t notes for a eulogy. They’re divorce papers. Andrew and I are done. I, I can’t believe you just did that, and I can’t believe you just accused me of wearing a wire. I mean, my God, it was just a couple weeks ago you told me to save myself and testify against you if I was drunk, man.

Yeah. And you’re drunk now. Single more this time. Oh, bloody hell. Well, you can’t blame me for being suspicious when my neck saw from looking over my shoulder all the time. You should know damn well by now that I am the last person. You need to worry about being like that around God. I came here in fact today to reassure you.

You don’t need to worry about me going and cooperating with the police. You don’t believe me. You can ask my father, Jack. We’ll see. You got to do this everything. He gave me an ultimatum. He said, I can go to Rafe, cooperate with the da, we’ll risk him cutting me outta his life forever. What? I was forced to choose one.

I trust you, Sandra.

Okay, so pretend you’re Stephanie. I show up flowers, an apology letter, and obviously I know a letter and a bunch of flowers isn’t gonna turn everything around, but I mean, it’s a start, right? Right. I mean, I, do you think I have a chance or am I just like diluting myself? . I mean, obviously I don’t know what’s in the letter, but assuming that it is a heartfelt, sincere apology, if it were me, yeah, I definitely consider forgiving you and Stephanie.

You know, I mean, she’s hurting right now, obviously, but I think deep down she knows that you are too good to give up. Well, thank you for saying that. And I’m sure that Chanel knows that same thing about you, cuz you are way too good to give up. Yeah. I appreciate you always being in our corner, Alex, but of course I actually don’t think that Chanel does know that about me.

What are you talking about? What do you mean what happened? Well, we tried to talk things out. Uh, didn’t get us very far. So we’re on a break. She moved out. Oh hell no, no, no, no, no. You ally. You know what you gotta. You gotta call her. You get her over here right now, right this instant. And you know what? I’m gonna be the damn couple’s therapist.

I’m gonna do it. I am. I’m obviously not a pro, but I’ve read a lot of articles on relationships lately and I did take a psychology class in college, so I might be able to help out a little bit. Alex, I love you for trying to help, but this is between me and Chanel. I understand. I just hate to see you go through this.

You two seem so good together. We were for a while. But anyways, enough of that. You need to go to Stephanie right now. You need to go. You need to give that girl these flowers and that what I’m sure is a beautifully written letter, , and you gotta tell her how you feel. So go, go, go another minute. Thank you.

Thank you,

You told me just recently. You couldn’t even think about getting involved with someone until you’ve worked through your grief. That was before I had my talk with Jack. You know, I, um, remember how I, I told you that I, that I was worried that it would be unfair to you if we got involved because of my feelings for abi my, my inability to move on.

And so, Jack and I, we talked about,

I’m never gonna get over her. She’ll always be in my heart. I’ll always see her and my kids

I’m always gonna have memories of her. And then

Jack said something that was, Very simple, very insightful, which was, and I can’t let that hold me back.

I can’t let that hold me back

because if I do, it’ll never be the right time. You know, if I just, if I’m just expecting that one day I’m gonna wake up and I’m not gonna,

Or miss her still being here. Still my wife, still the mother of my children still alive. It’ll never happen. I’m never gonna get over her.

I’ll never not wish for them.

So I’m, I have to learn to live with those feelings, those yearnings as I go forward. And I realize that I don’t want to wait

because I know that if I wait, I might miss out on something. Great.

Something really great.

Chloe, did something happen between you and Stephan? He didn’t cheat on you, did he? No, no. It’s, it’s nothing like that. Uh, actually, he, he wants to give us a chance of being together. , I guess I, I just don’t know if he truly knows what he wants.

Is that your phone? No, I thought it was yours. Oh. Um,

landlord . I keep saying who even has these anymore Damara residents. Statesville Prison. Sure. I’ll accept the call.

Vivian Alama, why are you calling?

So you brought. Yes. And you had him work on me. I had him fix you, and, and it was intense, which is maybe why you’re confused right now. But just look, look at me and just tell me what you feel right now. I, I.

I feel like I love you


to protect me over your relationship with your father. Are you crazy?

I’ve been called worse. Please the world to you. So do you.

I love you big knob. I mean, don’t you get that?

I suppose though, what is crazy is all that I’ve done for you is no hope of it ever menting to anything. And that’s because you are in love with Sarah and I know that eventually she will forgive you all your trespasses and you will probably pick up right where you left off and I will just be left with heartbreak for my troubles.

But that’s fine.

I’m still happy I did it and I would do it again if I needed to. Cause that is how much I care about. You think Sarah and I are gonna patch things up

if history is any indication? Well, she left not long ago. We should get her back here. She can show you the divorce papers I just signed.

Nope, not. Not blaming what? Come on, Sarah. You know, any minute Alexander’s gonna come walking through that door with a bottle of bubbly thanking me for forcing you to give him another chance. Yeah, Bonnie, trust me, that is never gonna happen. Hmm. Why not? Because I went to go see Xander like you urged me to do, and I walked in on him and g.

But, uh, locked in on him and as in. No, I mean, not walked in him as in, but they were both soaking wet and she was wearing his shirt. He swore to me that nothing would ever happen between them. And you know what? That’s not even the reason that we can’t be together. We can’t be together because he and I we’re just, we’re too incompatible in so many ways.

And look, I will admit the. Bad boy thing was part of the reason that attracted me to him, but that was because it was fun and and exciting. Now it’s, it’s scary and, and it’s unsettling. I can’t handle it anymore. So Justin dripped these papers and I got Xander to sign them once I signed them. It’ll be over for good when hell freezes over.

So let me get this straight. You think you and I have a shot at something? Excuse me. Great. I guess this was a mistake. A mistake you think, and yet it was only a short time ago that you told me in no uncertain terms that you weren’t ready, that it was too soon. Yeah, I said that, and that is why I gave into Alex, who was relentless about us getting together.

And now you’re telling me I didn’t have to shoot. You’re mad. I’m, I’m. It could have been you and me this whole time. If only you’d known, but you didn’t, did you all this just suddenly hit you tonight? Well, do you know what I have to say to that? What? Thank God you didn’t. Wait another minute.

Vivian slowed down. Your son Stephanie is where? With whom? Vivian, I am not following you. You know Chloe is here. Does she know what this is about? Okay. Chloe, she wants to talk to you.

Vivian, what? What’s going on? Oh my. Gabby has stuff in captive downstairs in the secret room.

Did did you just say you love me? You’re not lying. You really love me, love you. Want you, oh my God. These feelings. You’re just rushing through my body. I can’t imagine how I felt any other. It worked. I can’t believe it worked right? I dunno if it really worked. It’s possible that he may be faking. Is is it true?

What? Saying it. Are you faking it? Do you still hate me? No. Gabby, I can never hate you. I know I said it before, but it bears repeating. I love you with all in my.

I wanna believe that more than more than you know. But how do I know you’re not lying? Kiss me. Kiss me and find out.

Bonnie, this is silly. Just give those back. You’re rushing things. I am not rushing things when it comes to Xander, so please just give me those back so I can finalize my divorce. No, you need to think about this buddy. Give those to me right now. Back off. Stop this. Arm. I rip these to shreds and eat every bite.

Pulled out all the starts with Sarah. Tried to make her see how much she means to me. I can’t lose her. Tried to make her reconsidered reminder why she was attracted to me in the first place because I do. Things like the occasional kidnapping. So she likes that you are a bad boy. Apparently there are limits and I have exceeded them.

So she’s done. She doesn’t wanna be married to me anymore, so Sarah and I are over. Good this time,

hunter, I’m really.

What’s wrong? I thought I heard something. I dunno. Did you? No, I was probably nothing.

So what do you think? That felt real and great. . Oh, Gabby, I am sorry I treated you so terribly, but that wasn’t me. That wasn’t the real. Me. I look at you now and I I see my precious, beautiful life. So perfect for me. And I I love you. I love you so much. You believe me now, don’t you? I believe you. I believe you.

Get away from him. What the hell? What the hell is right? I just talked to Vivian. You’ve taken Step in prisoner. Oh, you’re too late. Step Love meet you. You right Kevin. I do love you. But what I,

I love you too,

Alex. How did it go? Did you like the flowers? Did you like the letter? Uh, I think you can guess how it went since here I am alone, which is more than I can say for Stephanie.

You okay?

God, I need to get back in shape. I think I, my, my, my heart’s beating so hard.

I’m just really relieved that you’re so, um.

So what, just follow, receptive, you know, to everything. And I, I, I know that I’ve, I’ve done a complete 180 about everything since I had that talk with Jack. Oh, I’m very glad you had that talk. Yeah, thank you. I just know, you know, you’re going through so much right now. Dealing with the loss of your mother, and, and I know that you’re, you know, you’re helping your father and your brothers plan everything.

I, I, I should go. All right. I, I’m gonna go, what? Yeah. You know, and then I’m just gonna give you some space, and then in a week or two when things have settled down a little bit, maybe you and I can pick up where we left off. Yeah. Um, That talk you had with Jack sounds to me like part of what he said didn’t get through to you.

What do you mean? Didn’t he say that there’s never going to be a right time? Yeah.

Hey, second. Hey, listen, you don’t know what you’re saying, okay? You don’t. You don’t love Chloe anymore. Dr. Vall fix you. It’s, it’s me you love. I do love you, Gabby. Okay, great. Now, now, thank. How do you feel about Chloe? I love her too. Oh my God know. I know what’s going on here. You undo his feelings for Chloe.

He had no feelings for her. When we finally got together, you need to finish where you started. I’m sorry. There’s nothing I can do, I’m afraid. Stefan’s current state of mind is. Immutable. No, no.

Fine. I’m not sorry that Sarah moved on from you. I mean, why should I be? Because you claim to care about me. My soon-to-be ex-wife thinks I’m the coming of the earth. Yes, I do. I do. I do care about you and I don’t want you to get hurt, but at the same time, you prefer me unattached

and. Well, the divorce papers I just sign say different. I’ll tell you. Oh, papers that might never be filed or papers that might be ripped in the papers will be filed. Gwen Fireplace, it doesn’t matter. There might be just a hiccup here happening. It might just be a bump in the road. I mean, you and Sarah, you’ll make up and Sarah might have regrets or you’ll do something really romantic and lovely and that will just leave me.

I am Nicole. Exactly. Quinn, listen to me and you listen. Good. Okay. Sarah and I are totally irrevocably over. I’m not just talking about her feelings, I’m talking about mine. I mean, why I don’t want to be with somebody who’s just always moving the goalposts. I want a bad boy, but he can’t be too bad. I love you so much, but not enough to forgive you for something you did.

Even if it was for my own good. I, all I wanted was to give the woman the kind of life I felt she deserved, and how did she thank me? She hers insults at me in files for divorce.

Who instead of throwing me under the bus, like I so richly deserve, you

throw away a chance of a relationship with your dad and for what? You had no guarantee that that’d get you anywhere with me. You only did it because you care, because you have faith in me. Because you don’t judge.

Show you that

I know that you think that you’re being a good. And that this is helpful, but it is anything. But in fact, it is making me very upset, as you can see. Yeah. Well, you’re gonna be even more upset if you file these papers and then one day wake up maybe tomorrow and regret this with every cell of your being.

The only thing that I regret is getting involved with Sandra in the first place. Ronnie, if you rip up those. I’m just gonna call Justin and have him drop another set, and then I will take those to Xander and have him sign them again. So yes, you can delay this whole thing with your shenanigans, but you cannot stop it.

So why interfere in my life thus infuriating me when you can just do the respectful and dignified thing and hand me those papers first.

So Chad was with Stephanie when you arrived? Yes. The door was open and I saw them together. Together like, like I saw them together. Ellie, I saw them kissing. Alex, I’m so sorry. Me. Me too. Me. But mostly Allie, I am sorry because I feel like the biggest idiot who has ever lived turning off her phone when Chad was trying to reach her.

I mean, I, I, I’ve done some selfish, stupid things in my life, but this is by far the stupidest, most selfish of all time. Okay? Seriously, there’s no way that you could have not, it doesn’t matter. Whatever. I, whether I knew it or I didn’t know what Allie, what I did was wrong. I did it for the wrong reasons, and I’m gonna end up regretting that for the rest of my life.

It’s pathetic. Allie.

I just pushed the woman of my dreams into the arms of another man.

How you, um, no more doubts, no more hesitations. And if you were about to ask me if I’m sure. This is my.


you realize you’ve lost every. You find for where has it been? What will it take to be happy kin,

your second chance is your fault or your fifth. You kinda lose track when life gives you. Her tonight will make your head spill. Is that what it takes to be happy?

Don’t give up the fight. The hope.

The love of your life may be,

your life may

call out the name that you hear in. Then take ride in the way back

time to say


Is right here.

The love of your life might be dust.

To be.

Alex, the last thing that you are is pathetic. And hey, maybe the kiss that you saw between Chad and Stephanie, maybe it was a goodbye kiss. Thank you for trying, Ellie. But no, it was not a goodbye kiss. And can we please just not talk about this anymore? Please. Please. Okay. Okay. Sorry, I just, I hate to see you hurting.

Thank you, but I will survive. What about you? What’s going on? Surprised to see her at the square. So Lane? Yeah, I just have to come back. I left something at the bakery. Ah, so that means you haven’t heard from Chanel? Haven’t seen her. Nope. I’ve got no idea where we stand. But I feel like if I had gone to see her, I probably would’ve witnessed something similar to what you did.

You mean with Johnny? Yeah. Or someone. It could have been literally someone just met. I don’t know. Chanel is very friendly. She likes to flirt a lot. That would be the hurt talking. Yeah, I know. I know. I’m hurt. Aren’t we the pair? Mm.

You wanna grab a drink? I thought you’d never ask

Oh, damn, I forgot the flowers. , I don’t need flowers. No, no. But when you showed up at my door, anyone I did need.

Chad, your feelings must be all over the place right now.

Yeah, they are.

I promise you. I’m exactly where I.

thank you. I’ll have, you know, I was standing up for true love.

I get it, but because as it turns out, true love wasn’t what X felt for me, or he wouldn’t have behaved so despicably or disloyal. I am going to sit here.

Do you still tap?

It’s not you. I don’t. It’s just that

I find it so hard to believe that something I, I want so badly. It’s actually within reach. It wasn’t within the range. He’s here. Gwe, I’m here. That’s what’s so hard to believe since. I mean, I’m not at all used to things working out for me, so I might have noticed nothing ever works out for me either.

Maybe that’s why we’re supposed to be together. So now why don’t we see if we can finally make something work out for ourselves?

Immutable my ass. Nothing is immutable. Not even death. You’ve proven that you gotta do something about this. I’m sorry, Gabriela. I can’t knock myself. New equipment. Come on. Let’s get you untied so we can figure this out. Figure th there’s nothing to figure out. I’m in love with the two most beautiful women in the world.

How lucky am I?

Abby: Hi.

[ Sighs ] Hi.

Lily: Hi.

Abby: Uh, picking up food to go?

Lily: Uh, yeah, I am.

Abby: Do you want me to go check on your order?

Lily: No, no, no, it’s fine. They said it’d be ready in a few minutes.

Abby: Oh. Let me guess. You are picking up food to bring back to the office because you’re working overtime.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, well, there is a lot going on at chancellor-winters these days.

Abby: How are you feeling about everything?

Lily: Well, you were there when devon said he’s ready to go to court over this.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Lily: What do you think about it? I mean, I know that you’re loyal to devon, and clearly he trusts you if he said it was fine for you to stay while we were chatting.

It’s probably because I know you both so well, and he didn’t think it would do any harm.

Lily: Yeah. Well, I just really felt like I found a win-win situation for us. I mean, he gets to keep the name and get paid handsomely, and we get to move forward with the ipo. Anybody clearly, devon doesn’t feel the same way about it.

Lily: Yeah, but how do you feel about it? Because, I mean, you were very quiet during our conversation. Do you really think that devon is making the right decision?

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Devon: Look who it is.

Victoria: Hello, there, devon.

Devon: Hi, victoria.

Victoria: So, how are things going with the ipo?

Devon: Uh, well, why would I want to talk about that with you after you tried to take my company?

Victoria: I may have had some interest initially, but I’ve moved on.

Devon: Oh, well, that’s good to hear. You’ve been making some interesting choices lately at newman media. I hope you don’t regret hiring nate and audra, since they both betrayed chancellor-winters.

Victoria: I’m sorry there’s a rift between you and nate.

Devon: Are you?

Victoria: Yes, of course I am. I know how important family is, and I know how tricky family business can be.

Devon: Bet you do.

Victoria: Speaking of family, how are things going with tucker?

Daniel: Thank you. I’m willing to sit down with you, but anything we discuss regarding omega sphere is purely hypothetical. You know that I have a deal with chancellor-winters.

Tucker: I do. I was gonna ask you about that.

[ Clears throat ] What’s the current status of your contract there, with their ipo on hold?

Daniel: Should have a better idea in a week.

Tucker: I admire your patience [Chuckles] And your loyalty, [Inhales deeply] Especially to a company that seems so in flux.

Daniel: Well, lily is a dear and trusted friend.

Tucker: Hmm. Yeah, but she can’t know everything, right? And this is your vision, your future. It’s a possible legacy move for you. Have you ever been involved in anything potentially this big?

Daniel: Nothing of this scale when it comes to business. I was an artist, so I was painting, doing photography. These are all uncharted waters for me, which is why I need to make sure that I align myself with someone that I trust completely.

Tucker: You mean, someone unlike me.

[ Laughs ]

[ Glasses clink ]

Diane: Hey, thank you for telling me about your conversation with kyle. I need to speak to him now. You know, I just don’t want his fears about us to fester. And if he felt the need to discuss them with you, then I should do the same with him.

Jack: I’ll call and tell him to join us.

Diane: No, no, no, no. I should talk to him alone. I — I want him to be able to speak his mind freely without worrying what your reaction would be or wondering if you were going to defend me or not.

Jack: And we both know I would.

Diane: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. This also is not a conversation for the office.

Jack: Okay, you decide what’s best.

Diane: Yeah. Kyle. Hi. I was wondering if we could talk. Um, can you meet me at the house?

Nick: As misguided as it is for dad to try and create trouble for you at jabot, it does seem like he wants to bring you back in the fold. Hey, is everything alright?

Sally: Yeah, it’s fine.

Nick: Doesn’t seem like that.

Sally: I am more interested in what the two of you were discussing. The parts of your body that collagen supports:

Additional sponsorship

provided by…

Adam: Uh, my brother was just alerting me to a potential land mine set by our father, and I was about to thank him, even though his motives were potentially self-serving.

Nick: Well, adam, I just hope you can use the information regardless of why I shared it. Sly well, I’m just relieved the two of you aren’t battling each other — at least, not now.

Adam: Oh,no, we’re not ready to throw a fist just yet. We are, um — what are we doing? How would you characterize this, nicholas?

Nick: Just trying to keep our father from causing trouble.

Sally: Hmm. Good. Uh, you know, I — I’ve kind of lost my appetite. I-I should get going, but —

Adam: Hold on a second. Alright, you are not acting like yourself. What’s — what’s wrong?

Sally: It’s nothing, I swear. You know, I just have a lot on my mind, getting this new company going. You know, we’ve hit a few snags, but it’s all gonna work out.

Nick: I’ll leave with you.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Nick: What’s going on? That phone call really seemed to upset you.

Sally: Uh, it was my O.B., Dr. Chandler, but I really don’t want to talk about it in here, so…

Adam: [ Sighing ]

Devon: Why would you ask me about tucker?

Victoria: I just know that it must be tense now that you know his true motives for coming to genoa city was to take control of chancellor-winters and jabot. I mean, it must hurt, given that when he first came back, he said that he wanted to connect with you and dominic.

Devon: Well, I didn’t trust him from the day he turned up, so that doesn’t hurt that much. But I imagine that you learned about his true motives from audra?

Victoria: No, actually, i talked with tucker about it myself.

Devon: Oh, you did? That’s interesting. You seem awfully curious about my relationship with him and the ipo and chancellor-winters, all in the same conversation.

Victoria: I’m just asking you as a friend. It’s not business.

Devon: I don’t know if you’d call us friends, victoria, but I do know that you don’t do anything casually. So why don’t you just come clean about what you really want?

Tucker: I know you’re wary of me, and not without good reason, considering my history in this town with some of the folks. But I just wish I could convince you that we share a similar vision.

Daniel: Hmm. I actually do think that we share some common ground. Your pitch earlier struck a chord with me.

Tucker: Really?

Daniel: Mm hmm. So much so that I spoke with my mother about it.

Tucker: Uh-oh.

Daniel: [ Chuckles ]

Tucker: I cannot imagine phyllis was in favor of us going into business together.

Daniel: [ Chuckles ] Oh, you are correct. Well, this is my venture. I’m going to make the final decision as to who we partner with if things do fall apart at chancellor-winters. My mother, well, she’s going to have to deal with whatever decision I make.

Tucker: I like the sound of that, although I know phyllis can be a little, uh…

Daniel: Bossy?

Tucker: [ Chuckles ]

Daniel: Stubborn?

Tucker: [ Chuckles ]

Daniel: Always thinks she’s right?

Tucker: I was gonna say “formidable,” but…

Daniel: Mm-hmm. Well, she works for me, so I’ll handle her. And that doesn’t mean I’m gonna turn my back on lily — you know, not without cause.

Tucker: Sure.

Daniel: I just hope that’s something that you can appreciate and, um, maybe back off until things have settled.

Tucker: But you should know, my company is absolutely the most viable place for your dream to come to life. And, uh, [Chuckles] When i set my heart to something, I — I don’t ever give up, which [Sighs] Has been a problem for me, learning to let go. So I’ve been combating that with the belief that things are going to work out the way they’re meant to. You know, simply trust the universe and all that?

Daniel: I’m sorry, what did you say?

Abby: Look, I have seen far too many times how business can damage family relationships. And at first, I was trying to nudge devon to accept the buyout.

Lily: Yeah, well, too bad it didn’t work.

Abby: I disagree. I mean, after listening to devon, I understand his perspective. Hamilton-winters means so much to him, and it would be awful for him to lose it to some ipo that he never supported in the first place.

Lily: Yeah, but do you realize how ugly a lawsuit could become? I mean, you think there’s hurt feelings and resentment now. Imagine what going to court would do.

Abby: Honestly, I don’t know why you and jill don’t just accept devon’s decision. Chancellor industries was huge before it ever merged with hamilton-winters. So why don’t you just go back to that? And why are you willing to fight your brother for something that’s dollars and cents to you, but it means everything to devon? I think it says more about your priorities than anything else.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] How dare you question my priorities? To you, it may just be an elevator.

Lily: Who are you to tell me that I care more about my business than my family? My family has always been a priority to me, and I really resent you saying otherwise.

Abby: I think you’re misinterpreting what I said. I never said you didn’t value your family.

Lily: Abby, I’m only talking to you about this because I’m trying to figure out a way to have devon and I work this out together. I’m not trying to get you to convince him to not fight for his company. I’m trying to convince him to stay at chancellor-winters.

Abby: Devon has made it clear — drop the ipo.

Lily: Jill is not gonna go for that. She’s not. The whole reason for this merger was to have our family work together. And I’ve already lost nate, and now I feel like I’m losing devon. And he’s saying that he wants to protect our father’s legacy. Like, he’s my father, too. Of course I want to protect his legacy. And he doesn’t realize that if we go to court over this, it could damage hamilton-winters. And I don’t think he’s considering that risk.

Abby: Have you said this to your brother?

Lily: I’ve tried. I have tried, and he just seems so set in doing this. Abby, listen, I would never ask you to go against your instinct, but you said you know what kind of turmoil this could cause to a family. So a legal battle would damage us all. So I’m just asking you if you think that devon might regret walking away. Just tell him that. Please, just tell him that, as one last try.

Victoria: I’m not sure what you mean. I don’t really have anything to come clean about.

Devon: Oh, really? Okay, well, then I’m gonna go ahead and take off because I need to get back home. Abby is dropping off dominic, so I’ll see you later.

Victoria: Devon, uh…

Devon: Yeah?

Victoria: [ Sighs ] = You may not see it this way, but I still — I still see you as a friend. And we are connected by family through abby and dominic. I hope we can find a way to separate the business and the personal. I’ve had to learn to do that as a newman. It’s not easy.

Devon: [ Chuckles ]

Victoria: But if you count everyone that you have a different professional agenda with your enemy, then your circle gets very small.

[ Footsteps departing ] Um… can I get a coffee to go? And, um… a croissant? Thank you.

Tucker: I’m — I’m trying to trust the universe?

Daniel: [ Chuckles ] The same exact thing that heather always used to say to me. Sorry. It just caught me off guard, hearing those words.

[ Sighs ] Anytime I would lose my patience, get frustrated, she would always tell me to stop fighting and trust the universe.

Tucker: Hmm. You miss her a lot?

Daniel: I do. But I’m following her advice and yours. I’m living my life and I’m having faith that one day we’re gonna be reunited. That’s — that’s the reason why this project is so important to me and believe that it’s the path that I’m meant to be on, the one that’s gonna bring me back to lucy and heather. So I’m just trusting the universe.

Tucker: Hmm. I guess you must have a certain amount of trust in phyllis, too.

Daniel: Why would you say that?

Tucker: I assumed she was going to portugal to help smooth things over with your partner and daughter. The universe needs a little boost sometimes.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Diane: [ Sighs ]

[ Door opens ]

Kyle: [ Sighs ]

[ Door closes ]

Diane: Hey, thanks for coming. Um, I-I know you’re busy, but I — I kind of felt like this conversation couldn’t wait, and, well, I thought we could use some privacy.

Kyle: What you want to talk about?

Diane: Well, I spoke to summer, and she clearly has reservations about jack and i being romantically involved again. I — I tried to address her concerns, but I-I-I don’t know how effective I was.

Kyle: Well, I haven’t had a chance to talk to summer about that yet.

Diane: Well, I also spoke to jack, and he told me that the two of you talked earlier.

Kyle: Thought that was supposed to be a private father-son conversation. Is this how it’s gonna be now — I say something to one of you and it’s automatically shared with the other?

Diane: No, no, absolutely not. But, kyle, that’s why I wanted to talk to you. I-I don’t want to hear how you’re feeling from summer or from jack. I want to hear it from you. And [Sighs] I want you to be honest with me. Suffering from sinus congestion, especially at night?

Kyle: I am still processing the idea that you and dad are back together. Like I said before, when you broke the news. I’m conflicted.

Diane: And I want you to tell me why.

Kyle: I’m worried things may not work out, which happen way more often than “happily ever after.”

Diane: Kyle, I have no intention of messing things up with jack. I love your father’s big heart, and I am not going to break it again.

Kyle: I want to believe that. But people make promises and things happen. Things have happened. I know you’ve hurt him in the past, moving us around, cutting us off from him.

Diane: Alright, well, things were complicated back then.

Kyle: Yeah, but dad’s heart is not complicated. And if it is broken, so is the entire abbott family, because we rely on him, we lean on him.

Diane: I know, and I accept that responsibility.

[ Sighs ] But I-I can’t let the fear of what might happen keep me from being happy now. And it’s not just one-sided. I mean, I’m taking a leap of faith with this romance, too. We both are. Because, I don’t know, it just feels right in so many ways that it hasn’t before. But you’re right, you’re right. There are no guarantees. But jack and i both have a lot at stake. And we’ve gone into this consciously and cautiously.

[ Sighs ] But I get the sense that there’s more going on for you when it comes to this. You’re not just protecting jack’s heart, are you?

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Nick: [ Sighs ] Alright, now that we, uh, have some privacy, do you want to tell me what your doctor said?

Sally: Um, yeah, I’m — I, um– I just went in for some routine prenatal testing, and — and everything’s fine, but, um, they want me to come back in because my blood pressure is high.

Nick: Has that been an issue for you in the past?

Sally: No, not at all. And I mean, dr. Chandler assured me there was nothing to worry about at this point. I’m in good physical shape. They said they’d just keep an eye on it and treat it if need be.

Nick: Okay, well, it sounds like your doctor’s just being cautious.

Sally: Yeah. Yeah, but it still threw me. It just got me thinking about this massive responsibility coming my way and all the ways that my life is gonna change, in the ways that I’m gonna have to adjust — ways that I-I can’t predict and ways I-I never even planned for. And just got me thinking, how — how am I gonna navigate all of it?

Tucker: Yeah, phyllis told me about her trip to portugal. You seem surprised. Did you not know?

Daniel: [ Chuckles ]

Tucker: Oh, man, I’m sorry I-I overstepped. Pretend I didn’t say anything.

Daniel: No. No, no, I-I appreciate the information. Not a big fan of surprises, especially ones concocted by my mother.

Tucker: Mm. Yeah, I’m — again, I’m sorry if I caused you any trouble. Listen, I got to get going, but I’m really looking forward to continuing this conversation. So, alright, man? Give me a call anytime you want. Okay?

Daniel: Thank you.

Tucker: Alright. See you.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Daniel: [ Clears throat ] I don’t know what you think you’re doing, but you better stop. You better not have gotten on that plane.

Devon: [ Sighing ] Oh, yeah. Oh.

Abby: Hey, you.

Devon: Hey.

Abby: I just got here. Dominic had a busy day at the play gym, so I put him down for a nap.

Devon: Oh, nice.

Abby: Is everything okay? What’s on your mind?

Devon: Um, I just ran into victoria at the coffeehouse, and now I can’t shake the feeling that she’s up to something with tucker.

Abby: Why would victoria be involved with tucker in any way?

Devon: I have zero idea. But she seemed oddly curious about my relationship status with him, and I don’t know if it had anything to do with chancellor-winters or not, but…

Abby: Weird. Um… [ Chuckles ]

Devon: [ Chuckles ]

Abby: Oh, I actually had an interesting run-in with your sister, and she said some things that surprised me.

Devon: How so?

Abby: I thought that lily was fighting you over hamilton-winters because she wanted to hang on to the winters half of chancellor-winters.

Devon: If she’s not, why is she fighting me at all and refusing to sell me my company back?

Abby: She painted a very different picture today. I’m managing my high blood pressure,

“The young and the restless”

will continue. What’s the #1 retinol brand

Devon: What exactly did lily say to you?

Abby: [ Sighs ] That she’s a sister who wants nothing more than to work alongside her brother.

Devon: Right. Well, yeah, I know that. That was the whole original motive for merging the companies together. But I don’t think she wants it anymore, since she’s siding with jill and wanted to hold on to my company.

Abby: Or maybe that’s her way of getting you to stay on.

Devon: How does she figure that’s gonna work? Getting me to stay on board? What, she wants to unify our family by not listening to my concerns and refusing to sell me back hamilton-winters?

Abby: Look, I know that it sounds crazy, but I saw lily’s pain. I could hear it in her voice. And, yes, maybe for jill, it’s about the bottom line. But for lily, I think she just wants to hang on to her dream. The dream of you two working together. She doesn’t want to hang on to hamilton-winters. She wants to hang on to you.

[ Paper tearing ]

Esther: Knock, knock.

[ Chuckles ]

Lily: Hey.

Esther: [ Chuckling ] Hi. I thought you could use a pick-me-up, and I made it just the way you like it.

Lily: Oh, my gosh. Thank you. I really appreciate that.

Esther: So, I haven’t seen, uh, devon here today. I-is he working from home, taking care of that adorable dom?

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Uh, well, I’m not really sure where he is.

Esther: I-is everything okay with him?

Lily: Yeah. Yeah, yeah. He’s, um — he’s fine.

Esther: Okay, well, if you need anything, anything at all, I’m here.

Lily: Thank you. Not really sure there’s much more you can do right now.

Esther: Okay.

Lily: Anyway, thank you for the tea.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Footsteps departing ]

[ Door closes ]

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Nick: Listen…

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Nick: …Don’t worry about it, alright? It’s not gonna do your blood pressure any good.

Sally: I know. I know. I just can’t help it.

[ Sighs ]

Nick: I know you were hoping you wouldn’t have to deal with the reality of becoming a parent for a little while longer. But it sounds like your pregnancy has other plans in mind. I know it can be overwhelming.

Sally: Oh, you don’t know. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I just — I-I-I am overwhelmed.

Nick: I know. I know. You’re not alone in this. Okay? I’m right here with you.

Sally: I just don’t want this to put any pressure on us. I mean, we’re supposed to be taking things slow. We’re just figuring this out. You know what this is, who we are.

Nick: Stop. We don’t have to think about things like that. We only have to look as far ahead as your next doctor’s appointment, okay?

Sally: Okay.

[ Sniffles ]

Nick: Okay.

Sally: Thank you.

Kyle: I feel like I’m taking a big risk opening up my heart to you again. I thought you were gone forever. And then you just showed up, and I had to wrap my head around the fact that you purposefully abandoned me. You let me believe you were dead. And when I found out you were alive, all those memories came rushing back. You can’t imagine what that was like.

Diane: Uh, you’re right. I — I can’T.

Kyle: And I had to reconcile the existence of a woman who could do that to her son with the nurturing mother I remember from my childhood. And you swore you worked for years to turn your life around, and you came back to ask my forgiveness, to be in my life and harrison’S. And I desperately wanted to believe you were genuine, that the hole you had left could be filled, and you have filled it to a large degree. But it is still hard to quiet the lingering doubts in the recesses of my mind.

Diane: Tsk. I… I don’t know if I will ever be able to heal the wound that I create. But, kyle, you have to believe me that you and harrison are the reason I came back, the reason I’ve stayed.

Kyle: Yeah, but we continue to be surprised by secrets from your past. The danger jeremy stark brought to our family. The risky plot you enlisted my dad in.

Diane: That wasn’t my intent.

Kyle: I know it was mostly dad’s idea, but he became a jewel thief for you. He stole from summer’s grandmother for you. So, excuse me if I have some reservations about where this relationship with my father could lead.

Diane: [ Sighs ] We pulled people off the street

Esther: Oh! Oh, you’re here! Oh. Oh, gosh. Uh-oh, I-it’s too much. Sorry. I-I-I just got caught up.

Devon: It’s okay. You alright?

Esther: I-I-I promise, I’m being discreet and not engaging in office gossip. But I want you to know that I absolutely adore you. You’re mrs. C’s grandson, and dom is katherine’s sweet great-grandchild. And I absolutely love working here for her family and for yours. And I-I-I’m just praying that you and your sister can work things out.

Devon: Oh, thank you very much for saying that. It means a lot to me. But I promise you, we’re gonna be just fine. We are. Sometimes things have to change, and you know, it’s the way things are. But I’m glad that you’re still the same esther that I’ve always known and loved.

Esther: Oh, back at you, sweetheart. Oh. Mwah.

Devon: Appreciate you.

Esther: I so love you.

Devon: We’ll be just fine. I’ll see you.

Esther: Okay, okay.

[ Door closes ]

[ Doorbell rings ]

Tucker: Oh, abby. Hi. I didn’t expect to see you. Did I knock on the wrong door?

Abby: Devon’s not here. I’m watching dominic. You know, devon and I are co-parents, so it shouldn’t be that surprising to see me here.

Tucker: No, just cut me a little off guard. May I come in? I got a little gift for dominic.

Abby: Dominic’s sleeping. And don’t think that this gift is gonna win any favor with devon or score any points with me.

Tucker: Your unapologetic disdain for me is very refreshing.

Abby: Well, there’s no need to fake civility, now that we know the real reason you’re in town.

Tucker: Oh, yeah. I understand why you might feel that way, given what you’ve heard, but I don’t believe you know the whole story. Will you give me a minute so I can tell you the rest of it?

Abby: [ Sighs ]

[ Footsteps approaching ]

[ Knock on door ]

Adam: Can I talk to you for a minute?

Jack: Absolutely. Come on in.

Adam: Hmm.

Jack: How’s it going?

Adam: Pretty smoothly. Or so I thought [Clears throat] Up until today.

Jack: Oh?

Adam: I just, uh, wanted to let you know that things might get a little more tumultuous around here.

Jack: Why is that?

Adam: Well, I don’t know all the details, but I found out that victor is working on a scheme to pull the rug out from under me here at jabot.

Jack: I can’t say I’m surprised. It’s kind of a classic victor move. Is he punishing you for leaving newman?

Adam: Well, according to nick, he wants to force me to come back to the company and the family. Guessing he thinks, if I failed here, it’d be a motivator to bring me back home.

Jack: Never ceases to amaze me how that man’s mind works.

Adam: ‘Cause it’s so twisted.

Jack: You said that, not me.

Adam: Well, at least, now that I know there is a plan in the works, I can avoid the trap.

Jack: We can handle victor and whatever plans he has.

Adam: Mm-hmm. There is one other thing that I need to tell you that I don’t think you’re going to be happy about. I suspect that kyle is involved.

Diane: Now that jeremy stark is out of our lives, there’s no more danger. And there are no more secrets from my past.

Kyle: Relieved to hear that.

Diane: And I’m not going to hurt jack or break his heart.

Kyle: There’s a part of me that sincerely hopes this works out. And my dad has assured me that he is walking into this with his eyes wide-open. But relationships implode all the time for all kinds of reasons. What happens if that’s the case? What will you do?

Diane: You’re still afraid that I’m going to leave again. Kyle, listen to me.

[ Sighs ] I can’t guarantee what the future holds for me and jack. But I can promise you that whatever happens, I will never abandon you again. Why do dermatologists worldwide recommend

Abby: Don’t expect me to offer you a drink.

Tucker: I’m — I’m crystal clear on the boundaries. I appreciate you letting me, uh, tell my side of things.

Abby: [ Scoffs ] I cannot wait to hear how you twist reality to fit your agenda.

Tucker: I profoundly regret how I bungled my attempt to reconnect with devon. I came back to genoa city expressly to bond with him, both professionally and personally. But I handled it wrong and made a major miscalculation.

Abby: It’s interesting how you left my mother out of your mea culpa.

Tucker: No, I wronged her, too. But while she’s on a different continent, there’s not much I can do about that. But I don’t plan on throwing in the towel when it comes to devon. I-I genuinely want to find a way to make things right with him. Uh, I’m just not gonna give up on my own son or my grandson.

Abby: Well, you should, immediately.

Tucker: Excuse me?

Abby: Devon is going through a lot right now. And the last thing he needs is more trouble from you. All you do is bring pain and turmoil into people’s lives. You’re bad news. You always have been.

Tucker: You’re protective of devon, and I admire that.

Abby: You should go… now.

[ Sighs ]

Tucker: I’ll be back another time…

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Tucker: …Because this is not the end of this.

Abby: It is, if I have anything to say about it. Here’s a little advice. Don’t cross me. Don’t cross us.

[ Door slams ]

[ Sighs ]

Lily: This is a surprise. What, uh — what’s going on?

Devon: Abby told me about the conversation you guys had.

Lily: Okay, what did — what did she say?

Devon: She said that you told her that the real reason that you want to keep ahold of hamilton-winters isn’t just to strengthen the ipo, but rather to keep me on board so we can keep working together as a family.

Lily: Yes. Yes, that’s true. So I hope the fact that you’re here means that you believe it.

Devon: No, I’m here because it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. And I don’t know why you would use abby to influence me one way or the other.

Lily: Uh, [Chuckles] Okay. Uh, no, I did not seek her out. We ran into each other. And, yeah, I was talking to her because I thought maybe she could get you to hear what I haven’t been able to do, which is that I’m sad and I’m scared because I’m afraid of how ugly this lawsuit could get. And I don’t want us to have what we created fall apart.

Devon: Yeah, but realize it’s only fallen apart because of what you or jill are doing to me. You’re siding with her to move forward with this ipo, despite how I feel, and now you’re not giving me my company back.

Lily: Devon, that’s not true. I-I want you to stay here. I want us to keep working together.

Devon: Right, as long as i go along with you and jill. A partnership doesn’t work like that. And you claim to care about neil’s legacy, but you won’t let me protect hamilton-winters properly. So you’re just proving to me that you care more about profits and jill’s agenda than you do your family or me.

Lily: [ Sighs ]

Devon: And the fact that you don’t see it that way, it hurts.

Kyle: [ Sighing ] Man. I want to believe you. I do. Just like all the other times, I’ve given you the benefit of the doubt. Of course, I want you and dad to be happy. Why wouldn’t I? But you’ve asked me to be honest about how I feel. That’s what I’m doing. And in my heart, I’m scared another shoe is gonna drop.

Diane: Kyle, I promise, there are no more secrets. There are no more surprises from my past.

Jack: I know kyle had real reservations about my hiring you to replace him, but I can’t imagine he would purposely try to sabotage you. Least of all, with victor.

Adam: Okay, trust me, jack, I didn’t want to believe it either, but I saw victor and kyle together. And frankly, their cover story wasn’t very convincing. And I know my father has a good poker face, but I read him pretty well, and I know how he operates.

Jack: As do I.

Adam: Look, I’m not trying to cause any trouble for you or for the company. I just — I’m trying to avoid that. Just thought you’d like to know that I think your son is conspiring with my father to take me down.

Jack: [ Sighs ]

Transcript provided by Suzanne


I don’t know why I keep looking at the phone. It’s not like they’re gonna text us and tell us how willow is doing. They’re just gonna come out and tell us, right? It’s very difficult to wait. I understand. But what else are we gonna do? My mind just keeps going to the worst-case scenario. Why is she still in the O.R.? What is taking so long? But the good news is willow is having a healthy baby girl, our shared grandchild. Right? Right. Isn’t that — isn’t that great? Nina. Sonny. Hi. Hey. Hi. Hi. Hi. Listen, I — I-I just was with drew, and, uh, he told me about you and willow. Yeah, that we’re mother and daughter. You, more than anyone, knows how long I searched for my daughter and all the disappointments. But now, curtis, my new daughter has a new daughter, and this miracle has been a-a long time coming… but it’s real. It is real, and I’m thrilled for you.

[ Laughs ] Jordan, I’m not just curtis’ aunt. I’m the officiant at his wedding to portia. How could I stand before the almighty and ask him to bless a marriage when I know the bride is lying to the groom?

[ Sighs ] How can I be silent knowing that portia hasn’t told curtis that trina might be his daughter? It’s not right.

[ Door opens ] Stella… ava was so right. This changes everything. My father actually confessed on record that he tried to kill esme, thought that he had killed her. What? Why would your dad ever record himself confessing to a crime? There’s got to be a reason. Does the reason even matter?

[ Cellphone beeps ] Nikolas: Any chance of reconciling with spencer was ruined. In effect… esme destroyed my life. When she taunted me on the turret, relishing every second, I grabbed her in a fit of rage and pushed her to her death. Honestly, my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner to spare the people that I love the pain I’ve caused them. This I solemnly swear. Esme… say something. My boyfriend’s father… is also my baby’s father. That’s a lot. It’s a complicated situation, and I’ll answer your questions as best I can. You just have to know one thing. You can trust me. There’s nothing you can do for me. But you are right about one thing. I have been working around the clock, and I’m exhausted. Much too tired to listen to you. You won’t have to worry about running into me again. I’m flying back to california and out of your life for as long as you want. I thought you were in port charles to consult on a case. I…I did. But now that I’ve met the patient, I decided I want nothing to do with this case or the person who requested my help. And neither should you. Your daughter is gorgeous. Seriously, I’m so happy for you and willow. Yeah, well, despite everything, all the fear and the worry, here she is, you know, healthy and perfect. Where’s my favorite new person on the planet? She’s right there. What’s going on? I swept the uterus, but she’s still hemorrhaging.

[ Echoing ] The leukemia’s gonna make this really complicated.

[ Echoing ] Suture and tag with a kelly.

[ Monitor beeping ] Harmony: Don’t be afraid, sweetheart. You’re not alone. Mama’s here.

And congratulations, grandpa. I know michael and willow must be over the moon. Okay. What’s wrong?

[ Sighs ] Um, well, willow — she’s still in the O.R. If you spoke to drew, he must have told you. Yes, I know that, uh, she risked everything to have that baby. And that is one hell of a brave daughter that you have there. Yeah. Sometimes it takes more than bravery. Look at britt. Right. Uh, that’s actually part of the reason I’m here — to let you know that I will support you at her memorial. Thank you. Thank you. Of course. It’s really great to see you. I mean, you out of everyone knows what a strange, long journey this has been for me. Oh, god. Well, I still regret how valentin played on our friendship that sent me on that search to bring sasha to town. No, I know, I know, but that’s water long under the bridge, curtis. You know, it all worked out for the best because sasha is not my daughter. But I do consider her my family. Almost daughter.

[ Chuckles ] I’m sure you’re gonna know what that feels like one day. Oh, from your lips. But first, there’s a wedding, and I am counting on both of you to be in attendance. Portia. Oh, we — we were just — it’s okay, stella. I know you and portia are picking up her dress today. An essential detail to cross off the to-do list. I hope it goes well. Britt’s memorial is starting soon, so I should get going. Oh, will you please send britt’s family and friends my condolences? I-I would definitely be there. It’s just things with the wedding have got them backed up, so… I’m sure they’ll understand. Are you ready? As I’ll ever be. Ava was right. I’m never gonna be able to unsee that. My father actually tried to kill esme. So you’re gonna use this to force your father to withdraw any claim to esme’s baby and let you have custody? Absolutely.

[ Sighs ] But what if he refuses? How can he? This confession is evidence of a crime. Not only did he seduce my ex-girlfriend, he tried to murder her. This isn’t just an accusation. This is my father’s own incriminating words. So you’re prepared to throw your father off the tower, so to speak. Hold on. I’m not the one who threw esme off the parapet. He did. We both know esme’s a monster. And the way your dad described it, it wasn’t premeditated. He — it — it was a moment of rage. And that makes it okay? Of course not. I’m not excusing what he did, but if you go down that path, you’ll be deliberately destroying your father’s life, using his own words against him to take his child away and potentially send him to jail. So what are you suggesting? That I do nothing? And I just let him get away with it? Let me get this straight. You’re paying for my defense attorney, and then you’ve also brought in the psychiatrist to consult on my case, who, within 10 minutes, just takes off. And then you inform me that I made this baby with — with you, my boyfriend’s father, and that I’m supposed to trust you?! Before your memory loss, you said you trusted me. Right? You said it yourself. There was a connection between us that neither one of us could deny. I said that? We were both in extremely vulnerable situations. Spencer had just broken up with you, and I thought my marriage was over. But what we did was wrong. But in our emotional state of mind… we couldn’t resist. It’s just…

[ Sniffles ] I don’t understand. If — if you’re the father, then why would spencer say the baby might be his? Michael: I know I’m not exactly objective, but I do agree with joss. My baby is gorgeous.

[ Laughs ] Of course she is. It runs in the family. Oh, gosh. I can’t wait for willow to see her.

[ Sighs ] I thought I would have heard from dr. Navarro by now. I’m sure you will hear soon. Okay. The anticipation is killing me. Do you have a name? Uh, with everything going on, we didn’t actually settle on a name. You know, wiley suggested ahsoka.

[ Laughs ] Oh. He told me. Yeah. Yeah, we — will and I, we actually — we called the baby walnut because of what she looked like in the first sonogram. Aww. Yeah. So ahsoka walnut corinthos. That’s a — it’s an option. Yeah. I’m sure you and willow have some alternatives in mind. Yeah, a few. That’s a good thing.

[ Laughter ] I’m proud of you. Oh, I’m so happy for you. Thank you. First things first, daddy. Come with me because it’s time for you to hold your daughter. Willow: No. You’re not my mother. You lied to me. No, it wasn’t all a lie. I couldn’t have loved you more if you were my own child. No one loves you the way I do. No. I-I know what love is and what it isn’T. Oh. You think nina loves you? Nina loves only nina. You know that better than anyone. But I was there for you when we moved from one temporary home to another, when it seemed impossible to make new friends. When you ran away and got lost, who found you? Who did their best to dry your tears and make it all better? Austin: [ Echoing ] She’s losing too much blood. I’m still here, kali. No. My name is willow. You’re still my kali. You’ll always be. And I can still make it better. We’re losing her!

Well, we cannot wait to go to you and portia’s wedding. Thanks, but I know you’re focused on getting good news about willow. Yeah. So… I will see you at the memorial. Okay? Yeah, okay. Thank you. Yes, okay. Thank you for your good wishes. Of course, nina. Okay. Love you. Love you. Alright. There should have been an update by now. I am sure when willow’s in recovery, we are gonna be told everything. Mm-hmm. I’m not defending nikolas or saying that he should get away with attempted murder. What are you saying? Before you use this confession as leverage, ask yourself, why did your dad confess in the first place? Your father is not a fool, and he must have had a reason. And what was ava’s motivation for giving it to you? I don’t care about his reasons. The point is, is that he made a recording of his confession, and ava wanted me to use it. Okay, look, you know I love ava, but she wants nikolas to pay for breaking her heart. This — this confession may not even be true. This could be another game between the two of them. If you use this confession as leverage, that means that you can get caught in the middle. But if it saves my little brother or sister, then so be it. If I wind up caught in the middle, I… I really don’t mind. Maybe you don’t mind… but I do. Nikolas cassadine brought you to town? He said he was asking on your behalf. Mine? He said you were in trouble. Why didn’t you say anything when you ran into me at kelly’s? He said it was imperative that you not know. From my perspective, I was flying blind, and I wanted all the facts before I went to you. He told me you’d been friends since high school and that he knew so much about you. But once I spent time with him, it became very clear to me that whatever trouble you’re in started because of nikolas. What exactly did he tell you? Enough for me to sense that he used your friendship to rope you into doing something wrong. Maybe even illegal.

[ Sighs ] He said I could atone for all the harm I’d done to you in the past. How? He said I could use those same skills to keep someone else from remembering something that would end up hurting you and your boys. And that someone is… esme prince, right? Yes. Are you ready to hold your daughter? Yeah.

[ Chuckling ] Go to your dad. There you go.

[ Chuckles ] Look how happy your brother is. She’s so little. She is. You used to be that little. Mm-hmm. Now look how awesome you are. Hey, little girl. I’m your daddy. It’s my job to love and protect you. And I’m gonna do the best I can to, uh, not spoil you too much, but I think that battle’s already lost, because I would — I would give you anything, sweetheart. And there’s so many people who can’t wait to meet you, starting with your mommy.

[ Cellphone rings ] Hey, sonny. We’re in the nicu visiting the baby. Is michael with you? He’s, um, holding the baby now. Why? The — the doctors in the O.R. Are looking for michael. What happened?

[ Monitor alarm ] Austin: Let’s get ready to shock. She needs a charge. Willow: Don’t call me kali. I’m willow, michael’s fiancée and the mother of his children. Where we’re going, names don’t matter. There’s nothing to tie you to the past… or the pain. Do you see the light? Do you feel its warmth? Don’t be afraid. Come with me… …into the light.

Britt westbourne’s memorial myself. I want her family to understand that the pcpd will not let her sacrifice be in vain. I’ll head to my office afterwards. Thanks. Hey, jordan. I couldn’t help but overhear. You know, it takes a lot of courage to face britt’s family on a day like today. Well, they’re entitled to answers. I just wish I had better ones for them. Right, yeah. Well, I know liesl obrecht, and she has quite the temper. I’d hate to see you take incoming fire. Well, that goes with the badge. Besides, if I’d lost a child, I’d feel the exact same way. So would I. Right this way, ladies. Can I get you some refreshments before the bride tries on her wedding gown? I’m good. No, thank you. I am a grown woman with a daughter in college. And here I am and my butterflies have butterflies. Oh, you know what? Why — why don’t we start with stella’s dress? Let me go get that. Okay. Is there a reason you think that you’re so nervous? A reason? Well, let me think. The last time I got married, I was in my 20s. Let’s start there. Yeah, that makes sense.

[ Chuckles nervously ] So tell me, how many weddings have you been a part of? Oh, enough. Enough to know that they’re never the same. Right. They all start out beautifully with the dress and the cake. Music, of course. But then sometimes… stella, you seem like something’s on your mind. And yet you’re not saying it, which is very unlike you.

[ Chuckles ] You seemed so cheerful and supportive about the wedding until now. Has something changed? What I meant was I care about that baby, too. That poor thing never asked to be born, let alone have esme and your dad as parents. That’s a tough beginning for any baby. Then you understand why I can’t just turn the other way on this one. Right? Why I need to fight using any weapon that I can find, because my father can’t afford for this information to become public. It’s gonna raise too many questions. And a judge or the police, they’re gonna want answers. And that’s why he is going to…bow out and give me custody of esme’s baby. Okay. If that was really your endgame, then why are you trying to leverage your dad? Why not cut out the middleman and go straight to the cops? Spencer was my boyfriend, right? Yes. So how do you know he’s not the father? Timing-wise, spencer couldn’t be the father of your baby. He disagrees. Because you’d have no way to know if he was lying. Not out of malice. My son has a good heart. But sometimes he winds up hurting the very people he’s trying to help. Like who? Look, I’ll deal with my son. Right now, we need to think about the baby. You have other challenges you have to face, like your very precarious legal situation. The reason I brought a psychiatrist like carolyn to see you was because I wanted to take at least one of those burdens off your hands. What’s that? Just a document. All you have to do is sign it, and I’ll make sure your baby is waiting until you’re free once more. I really think I should just go be with michael. I really do. Carly, willow is getting the very best treatment that G.H. Has to offer. Yeah, but sometimes the very best treatment isn’t enough, mom.

[ Sighs ] Willow’s been through so much just to give this baby a chance at life. Michael cannot lose her. He can’t lose her. I know. I know. Is she alright? Willow’s in the O.R. We’re just waiting for an update. But did they tell you anything? All I know is willow’s a fighter. That kind of runs in the family. -Retractor. -Mm-hmm.

[ Monitor alarm ] Willow: Where are you taking me, harmony? To a better place. The kind of place we’ve been searching for ever since you came into my life. A place of peace and tranquility. A place of love. Love? That’s right. Take my hand. What about my family? Michael and my children? Oh. I’m your family. Trust me. We’re almost there. That’s my girl.

I ran into your aunt stella a little while ago. Oh. She and portia were on their way to the bridal boutique. Oh, my goodness. Yeah. She’s excited. Everyone’s excited. Between her and my father, you would think that they were gonna be on top of the cake.

[ Laughs ] You know what? I’m sorry. I don’t mean to sound insensitive. Curtis, it’s okay. I want you to be happy. That’s why I…

[ Sighs ] That’s why what? Nothing. Uh, jordan? I know you. If it’s not about the wedding, what’s wrong? If I’m gonna stand before god and your family and friends… and our family. Our family. You know, I used to think that all I needed in my life was trina and my medical degree. But then curtis came back into it. And all of a sudden, we went from separate houses to this beautiful home of our own that we could share with trina. And we’re able to welcome curtis’ dad, you, tj, and molly. And I just feel like it’s like the more we give, the more we have. More love, more joy, more everything. And that’s why I feel like this wedding isn’t just about the two of us. It’s about all of us. Those are beautiful sentiments, portia. This is for you. Open it, open it, open it.

[ Chuckles ] Oh. It’s a bracelet, and it’s — it’s been in our family for generations. I wanted to know if you could wear it to my wedding to curtis. I’m — I’m sorry. Honey, I just — I just can’t accept this. I don’t understand. Why not? You went to see esme at spring ridge? Nikolas insisted. The moment I noticed she was pregnant and realized he was concealing some selfish reason to silence esme, I knew I couldn’t go along with that plan. I refuse to hurt someone else. I know nikolas cassadine has been in your life since high school, and he’s been around for some very important events that your dad and i both missed out on. But trust me… he is not your friend. I don’t believe he’s got your best interests at heart. I just wish I’d realized that sooner and — and — and been straight with you from the moment I got to town. I wish… well… so many things.

[ Sighs ] All I can say in my defense is I’m still learning. Look how long it’s taken me to get this far. I hope one day I earn your forgiveness. Mom. Yes? Thank you for telling me that. I…I really do appreciate it.

[ Chuckles ] You’re very welcome, elizabeth. Mom… yes? Thanks for calling me elizabeth and not lizzie.

[ Sniffles ] Like I said, I’m still learning. I can’t just stand here. I have to get to the 10th floor and we need to be… carly, carly, carly. You said sonny’s up there, right? Yeah, right. Yeah. So nina will be up there, too. So what’s worse? You know, we — we let michael go up there and face them on his own, or we go and one or both of them says some hateful comment and a fight breaks out at the worst possible time. I can’t stand the thought of michael being up there alone. He told us to stay with the baby. Yeah, he did. He did. Yeah. So I think we should do what he asked. So come on. Smiles on your faces. Put these gowns on. Come on in. Okay. I’m gonna listen to your grandmother. I’m gonna put my fears aside. I’m gonna put this gown on.

[ Sighs ] I’m gonna put a smile on my face. And I’m gonna go meet the newest member of our family. Come on. Hey. You gotta have a little faith. I don’t think god would bring your daughter into your life only to take her away from you. Please, please, please. Don’t let willow die. Please. She has two children that need their mom. Please let willow live.

[ Monitor alarm ] That’s it, sweetie. Just one more step. One more step and you’ll find perfect peace.

what makes you think something’s wrong? Again, I know you, jordan. Now, I know we’re past losing those divorce papers, so… so what is it? Curtis, I meant what I said. I genuinely hope there’s a happy ending for you and portia and trina. It’s a family heirloom, and you should save it and give it to trina for her own wedding. Well, when we’re talking about trina’s wedding, which is years and years and years away, hopefully, you can pay it forward. And I want you to give it to her then. Please, please tell me you’ll wear it to my wedding.

[ Sighs ] The last thing I want to do is spoil your happiness. You’re right. When you marry curtis, you marry his family, flaws and all. Stella, you’re flawless. Oh, no, hardly. Think about what I kept from curtis all those years. Letting him and his brother think that their father was dead. Yes. Yes. But you — you thought that you were doing the right thing for your sister. So if you — if you had to do it all over again, would you make the same choice? Honestly, I don’t know. And no one can make that kind of decision for you.

[ Door opens ] Woman: Here we are, ms. Henry. It’s showtime. If I take that video confession of my father’s directly to the police, then it’s out of my hands and it’s going to become a legal matter. But if I go directly to him and he backs off, it stays between us, and I will become responsible for esme’s baby. Hmm. Wow. It sounds like you got it all figured out. Even though we both know you’re doing this for another reason. What other reason? By keeping this from the police, you’re not completely shutting the door on your dad. Admit it, spencer. Part of you still loves him. And you know if you use that confession, that you’ll lose him forever. Shouldn’t I have a lawyer look over this before I sign? This is a mere formality, esme.

[ Sighs ] Look, I appreciate you thinking about me and my baby, but this is all really overwhelming. I mean, in a day’s time, I’ve gone from thinking that spencer is the father of my baby to finding out that it’s really you. And [Sighs] That’s a lot to process. Of course. I’ll leave the paper with you, and I’ll come back tomorrow. You need to be at your best so you can clear your name and come back to your — sorry.

Our baby. I don’t know, baby. Should we really trust him? This little miracle means everything to michael and willow. They have their whole lives ahead of them. Bobbie: I think willow has the perfect name because willow trees are stronger than you think. You know — ahh — a big, strong wind can knock down a giant oak tree, but willows — they can weather any storm. Willow… if you can hear me right now… …do you know how much we need you? Not just me. But wiley… and our new daughter. We’re waiting for you, willow. We’re waiting to take you home.

[ Echoing ] Home. Please come home to us, willow. We’re almost there, honey. Come home and live. Sonny: Michael. Hey, so, is willow okay?

My only objective is to protect that kid and give it the kind of chance that I was never afforded, trina. You’ve suffered from some horrible losses. That’s true. But you’ve also lived a pretty privileged life. Remember that. I can wait in the hall if you’d like some privacy. That’s okay. I’ll give you two some time alone. I think you and jordan have something to discuss. We do?

[ Gasps ] Oh, you look fabulous! Oh, my goodness. Okay, now all you need is some sparkle to bling it up.

[ Giggles ] Oh. Now I know everything’s gonna be perfect for my wedding day. Look at yourself in the mirror. Trina, is everything okay? What is it, spencer? What do you want to talk to me about?

[ Sighs ] Why don’t I want to sign this?

[ Sighs deeply ] Well, it was touch and go for a while, but willow’s doing great. She came through just great. Oh, thank god. I can’t believe how close we came to losing my daughter. C-can I see her? Yeah, absolutely. She — she’s just — they moved her. She’s in icu. Thank you. Thank you, austin. Thank you so much. You’re very welcome. I don’t think it’s nearly enough, but I just want to thank you from me and nina. Yeah. Thank you so much for saving her life. You’re — listen, I-I can’t take credit for something that willow’s done. Clearly, she doesn’t want to leave us just yet. Look at us. We’re so lucky. Four generations of spencer women. [ Laughs ] It’s almost enough to start our own sorority. Oh. Yeah. Sigma spencer pi.

[ Laughter ]

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Oh, yes. Willow’s in recovery. Oh, my — oh, that’s fantastic news.

[ Laughter ] Oh, you are one lucky little girl to be born into such an amazing sisterhood. I don’t know. I think we’re the lucky ones. This little angel may not have a name yet, but hopefully she has the gift that can give her mother life. I held our baby in my arms. Our beautiful baby girl. Willow, you’ve done the hardest part. You carried her. You kept her safe. You brought her into this world. Now all you have to do is wake up… so we can give our little girl a name.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Relaxing music ]

Taylor: No, I understand. I– I know that you’re worried abo– no, we have the situation with bill and sheila under control. We– no, because if you come back to confront bill, you’re just gonna make the situation worse. Because you’re gonna scream like that. Ridge, I– hey. Oh, stop. Can I call you back? No, I’m fine. I– I’ll talk to you later. You too. Bye. What are you doing here?

Sheila: Well, hello to you too. And I agree, you don’t wanna make the situation worse. I wanted to talk to you, now that I know that we really are not so different, you and me.

Taylor: We are nothing alike, sheila.

Sheila: Aren’t we? I’m really hoping that you can find a way to accept the situation, taylor. My freedom, my relationship with bill. So that we can just all live in peace and harmony.

Charlie: Okay. Here are the new hires for the security team. All have extensive training and experience.

Carter: Background checks?

Charlie: Done by yours truly.

Carter: Okay. Charlie, this place needs to be a fortress. With ridge out of town, I’m responsible for making it as safe as possible.

Charlie: Don’t worry at all. This place is going to be tighter than a $2 watch. You– you– you see– you see a $2 watch is really cheap and you have to wind it really tight.

Carter: Yes, charlie. Yes. I– I get the joke, charlie. It’s just that sheila’s running free and she’s a threat to all of us.

Charlie: Right.

Katie: She most definitely is.

Deacon: Well?

Brooke: Mm! Oh, my gosh! This is amazing.

Deacon: Thank you. Hey, and thank you so much for coming in before we open. I really appreciate it.

Brooke: Yeah.

Deacon: Wait until you meet the chef that I brought in.

Brooke: Well, you can tell your chef that the ravioli is magnifico.

Deacon: Grazie. You know, brooke, I– I gotta tell you, owning my own restaurant and making great money, working with amazing people, it’s– it’s special. But knowing that you and hope are proud of me, that’s something I’ve dreamt of for a very long time.

Deacon: You know, just before you got here, I had a pizza about to go in the oven.

Brooke: Yeah?

Deacon: Yeah.

Brooke: Still working on that signature pizza?

Deacon: I’m getting so close. Do you wanna try a slice? You know, just give me your thoughts. Come on.

Brooke: Yeah, no, really, I would like to do that.

Deacon: Yeah?

Brooke: Yes.

Deacon: Great. Okay, great. This is nice, right? Just two pals having a slice. I can finish telling you my plans for il giardino, and you can tell me how great life is now that ridge is out of it.

Charlie: Ah, look. Your concerns are not misguided, little cheese.

Carter: Whoa, whoa, wait, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Little cheese?

Charlie: Yeah, yeah, yeah. You see, ridge is the big cheese and– and steffy is the co-big cheese, which of course makes you–

Carter: Carter. Just– I’m just carter.

Charlie: Oh, I get it. You just– you want me to cut the cheese… references. You– you know, you used to be a lot more fun.

Carter: Charlie, I’ll be way more fun when we no longer have to worry about sheila.

Charlie: Yeah.

Carter: Look, I appreciate your hard work. We’ll touch base at the end of the day.

Charlie: Okay. Later. Somebody stop me.

[ Charlie chuckling ]

Carter: We’re in serious trouble. I called you last night, went straight to voicemail. You okay?

Katie: No. No, I’m not. I found out what bill has on steffy and finn. And how he’s blackmailing them to keep sheila out of prison.

Sheila: I can see you’re skeptical. That’s– that’s understandable.

Taylor: You know, I would love nothing more for all of us to live in peace and harmony. You shot my daughter and her husband and you lied about it. So the only way that peace and harmony is going to happen is when you’re behind bars.

Carter: Wait, you know what bill has on steffy and finn?

Katie: Yes. Yes. And it’s unbelievable. I– all this time, the truth was right there in front of us. And I– I can’t stop thinking about it. I was up all night long. I couldn’t sleep.

Carter: Hey, hey, hey. Slow down. Slow down. Breathe. Okay. Whatever it is, it’s obviously huge secret. If you don’t feel comfortable, you don’t have to tell me.

Katie: I trust you. Completely. And I– I don’t wanna keep things rom you, but… I think it’s probably best if you don’t know.

Carter: That’s fine. That’s fine. My main concern is you.

Katie: Well, there’s– there’s something else. I went to see bill to try to get through to him again.

Carter: Katie, I worry about you with sheila over here.

Katie: She wasn’t there at– at least not at first.

Carter: Were you able to talk some sense into bill at least?

Katie: I don’t know. I mean, I– I thought I could see a– a– a glimmer of the old bill in there somewhere.

Carter: How do you know?

Katie: Well, he implied that he would end things with sheila if I took him back.

Deacon: Man, I would’ve loved to have seen the look on forrester’s face when you and taylor shot him down.

Brooke: Well, we stood up for ourselves.

Deacon: Proud of you.

Brooke: Yeah. I think taylor’s proud too. I mean, we can finally be good role models for hope and for steffy. And kelly and beth, they need to see that they have strong grandmas.

Deacon: Oh, come on. They know. They know I’m sure of it. And hope, she really loves you.

Brooke: She loves you. She’s very proud of you.

Deacon: Thank you.

Brooke: Well, you know that. She believed in you when nobody else would.

Deacon: She is very clairvoyant.

Brooke: She is. Well, there is one fascinating development that nobody foresaw happening.

Deacon: Oh yeah? What’s that?

Brooke: I found a new dear friend in taylor.

Sheila: I understand why you may harbor ill feelings toward me.

Taylor: Oh, really? You understand. How good of you. Yeah. You– you put a bullet in me years ago, ruined my life. And then you shot steffy and finn, your own son.

Sheila: Yeah. You– you put a bullet in bill.

Taylor: Those are completely different circumstances.

Sheila: You know what? I am not here to argue with you. I just want you to know that you don’t need to fear me. I’m not here to harm you or anyone else in our family. You don’t need to get extra security or be guarded because I’m not gonna hurt you. I’m not gonna hurt anyone, taylor. I care about you. I saved your life.

[ Wind gushing ]

Taylor: Please, help me.

[ Taylor screaming ]

[ Taylor sobbing ]

Sheila: You know, you are– you’re a leader. You’re in a position of– of power. A prominent psychiatrist. The family will listen to you. Please. Because I’m– I’m not going anywhere. I’m a part of bill’s life, kelly’s grandfather’s, which means I’m a part of your life too. Mckenzie: Being a first time parent is hard, you know? taylor hayes are bffs? Well–

Brooke: Yeah.

Deacon: I suppose it had to happen sooner or later. Hell froze over.

[ Brooke laughing ]

Brooke: It is pretty wonderful. We are blown away by it. We do have a lot in common and not just ridge.

Deacon: Hey, who knows? Maybe ridge and I’ll become bffs next.

Brooke: Really?

Deacon: Yeah.

Brooke: Well, I don’t know if hell can freeze over twice. So, mr. Restauranteur, why don’t you tell me what you’re doing when you’re not coming up with your next wonderful special signature pizza? Is there a woman in your life? Uh-huh! Okay. I know that look. So there is somebody, isn’t there?

Sheila: You regret shooting bill, don’t you?

Taylor: I do. He wouldn’t be able to blackmail us if I hadn’T.

Sheila: I think there’s more to it, taylor. Why don’t you be honest?

Taylor: I mean, of course, I– I almost killed a man.

Sheila: It haunts your nights, doesn’t it? Makes you sweat and makes your heart raise. You know, I– I understand that. And I’m telling you, you need to forgive yourself. I know you of all people, I– I shouldn’t have to say that to. But you need to forgive yourself first, and then you can forgive others.

Taylor: God, this is so weird! Stop! Stop what you’re doing. Okay? You’re right. I– I do need to forgive myself. I’ve been– I’ve been carrying this for a long time. But I will never forgive you, sheila. Ever.

[ Sheila chuckling ]

[ Taylor exhaling nervously ]

Carter: So bill asked you to come back to him?

Katie: I told him with sheila gone, we could be a family, and he took it to mean that we could be a couple again. I– I saw this flicker of hope in his eyes.

Carter: I guess sheila’s hold over him isn’t as strong as we thought.

Katie: I don’t know. I wish I knew.

Carter: Are you sure?

Katie: About what?

Carter: That you can’t go back to bill? I’m no fool, katie. I know the history you two share.

Katie: Yeah. We do have history. And I will always care for him. And we will always be family. But I am not the same woman he married. There’s a level of respect and love that– that frankly, I demand because I deserve it. And after everything that happened with brooke, I deserve better than that.

Carter: You definitely do.

Katie: And now he’s with sheila carter. He’s– he’s blackmailing the mother of his granddaughter. I mean, frankly, I– I don’t even recognize bill anymore.

[ Knock on the door ]

Brooke: Hello! I come bearing gifts.

Taylor: Yay!

Brooke: I hope you’re in the mood for pizza.

Taylor: Oh.

Brooke: What’s wrong? Not a good time?

Taylor: Oh, god. It’s just um… sheila paid me a visit. Welcome to my digestive system.

Katie: I used to feel lucky to be with a man like bill spencer. He promised that he would always protect me and make me feel safe. And now, he’s with sheila. He’s literally bringing danger to my front door.

Carter: Hey, hey. Our front door. We’re in this together, remember?

Katie: I don’t know how you do it. You always make me feel safe. How can I ever go back to someone like bill after being with someone like you? Smart and kind, more giving and charming and handsome. And I’m gonna need a thesarus ’cause I can’t come up with any more adjectives.

Carter: I love them. You can keep going.

Katie: I think I’m going to drive you away with all of my cheesiness.

Carter: Do you see me leaving?

Carter: I know I just said, “do you see me leaving?” But I do have a meeting in like five minutes.

[ Both laughing ]

Katie: Okay. Thank you for everything.

Carter: Always.

Katie: Have a good meeting.

Carter: I will.

[ Door slamming ]

Katie: How did you get in here?

Sheila: I’m a free woman, remember? And I’m also the woman in bill’s life, katie, and I’m warning you. You need to accept our relationship or else.

Brooke: What on earth was sheila doing here? Are you okay? Did she threaten you?

Taylor: She wanted peace and harmony. She wants us all to get along.

Brooke: Ah, okay. Uh…

Taylor: You know what she said? She said that um… we’re no different than each other because we both shot someone.

Brooke: No, you and sheila are very different. It’s just–

Taylor: I attempted murder and then I kept it a secret. I didn’t wanna tarnish the old st. Taylor image, I guess. Right? It’s a lie. Because the truth is– is I– I shot a man.

Brooke: You weren’t yourself.

Taylor: I shot a man and I left him for dead. That’s what sheila does. So, she’s right. We’re not that different.

Brooke: Stop it. Stop, please. Sheila gets into your head and she makes you doubt yourself. Don’t let her do that. Taylor, look at me. Look. You are nothing like sheila. You are kind. You’re good. You’re smart. You’re an incredible mother. You built an entire career helping countless people around the world. You’re amazing. And sheila is just weaponizing your guilt. You can’t let her do that.

Taylor: I feel like I’m breaking. Brooke, I don’t know. I don’t know what to do. I– I don’t– I don’t know how long I can take this.

Brooke: It’s okay. Really. It’s okay. We’ll get through this. We’re gonna beat sheila. We’re gonna beat her. We will. I– I don’t know how yet, but we will. I don’t want you to worry about it. Just know… that I am here for you. Always. We’ll get through this. Okay?

Spencer. I know britt’s memorial is today, so I won’t take up too much of your time. I have been giving a lot of thought to our last conversation. When I asked you to help me fight my father for custody of esme’s baby, yes. Yeah, that’s the one. Did you talk to trina like I suggested? I did. And did she convince you to abandon this highly risky scheme? There’s my long-lost roommate. Hi. Hi. What are you doing here? Oh, britt westbourne’s memorial is today. Oh, right. Um, yeah. I-I want to swing by if I can. I owe britt a lot. You do? Yeah. Um. She helped willow with her cancer diagnosis, so… I didn’t realize that you knew britt very well. Uh, I don’T. I’m just… here as support. For spencer. That’s a lot of food. You feeding an army? Uh, sometimes it feels like it, the way we fight. But, no, this is just for my family, which is about to get one person bigger. Oh!

The role of nikolas cassadine will now be played by adam huss. Cassadine and webber. Yup, right there. We good? Mm. Glad you came around to my way of thinking. I’m here as a doctor, to evaluate that young woman. Nothing more. You’re here as a mother, as well. Help me — and you help elizabeth. Because this woman is a threat to you both? A very real and dangerous one. Is there some reason you don’t want our conversation overheard? It’s just quieter in here, that’s all. Huh. Okay, out with it. Why were you asking trina and i about the dna tests we took? Just research for a case. What case? You investigating the genealogy website? Don’t tell me that they’re guilty of unethical practices. No, it’s nothing like that. Then what? I’m just fact-finding, stella. Can we leave it at that?

[ Scoffs ] And here I thought you knew me well enough not to play me for a fool. Man, thanks for coming, drew. What? You know this could have waited. What are you talking about? A tux fitting — that waits for nobody. No, I’m serious. I mean it. I mean it, too. Your wedding is days away, and I intend — i look forward — to fulfilling my best man duties. And, see, this is why you’re best man. Ah, come on. Especially with everything your family’s going through. Yeah, the last couple days has definitely been a whirlwind. So…

[ Sighs ] …How is willow? Big day. Yeah. To, uh, admit, I pictured this going a little differently. You mean you didn’t a picture yourself dressed up like a big blue marshmallow?

[ Chuckles ] This isn’t your thing? Not really.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Laughs ] The or is generally a pretty sterile environment, but with willow being immunocompromised, we’re just taking some extra precautions. How’s it feel? Uh [Sighs] Awkward. That’s probably about right. Here you go. So, you’re s-sure I’m not putting willow at risk by being in the room with her? No, the only way you’re going to hurt willow is if you’re not there for the birth of your daughter. These things are the worst. I’ll help you out. Sure. There you go. Thank you. Yup. Okay, thanks. You know, babies — hands down the best part of my job. Mind if I join you in the or? How are you feeling? Ready to meet your baby girl? I can’t wait.

[ Sighs ] But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t anxious. That’s understandable. Dr. Navarro will be in soon, but in the meantime, I can answer any questions for you. I’m sure you’ve observed a lot of c-sections. Too many to count. And I’m sure you’ve seen a few in your training here. So you know they’re usually pretty routine.

[ Monitor beeping ] But have you ever seen one performed on a patient with stage iv leukemia?

Your situation is the first in my career. That being said, you know this hospital. You work in this hospital. You have the most prepared and proficient team to get you through this.

[ Door opens ] And the best support system.

[ Chuckles ] Michael: Hey. Hi. So, how are you feeling? I’m hanging in there. You? Oh, you know… cool as a cucumber, this one. You lie. Uh, yeah. Yeah, he lies. It’s totally normal to be nervous, right, doctor? Oh, yeah. Sure. Having a baby is a pretty big deal from what I hear. And this is dr. Adler, your anesthesiologist. He’ll be doing your spinal block. I’ve witnessed the procedure, but I’ve never had one myself. Well, first I’ll administer a local anesthetic. Once that takes effect, I’ll insert the needle between your lumbar vertebrae and through the dura to inject the medicine. Is that — is that gonna be painful, or…? Shouldn’t be any pain. She may experience some pressure as I insert the needle. You may also feel some tingling as the anesthesia takes effect, and that is normal. But once it’s fully working, you won’t experience any pain below the waist. And you won’t be able to feel your legs or move them. So, willow, don’t even think about running off, okay?

[ Chuckles ] I’m staying right here with you and our daughter. Forever. That’s the plan. You were very interested in my dna test. Oddly so. You even took it upon yourself to send it to your friend in forensics. Look, curtis and i were just trying to help you. The markers indicated you had a close relative in town. Which was a glitch in the website. We realized that after we discovered the match was my cousin in london. You know, tj always felt the chances of a glitch were low, and I agree. Your second match, yes, was your distant cousin, but the first one [Sighs] Was likely someone else.

[ Scoffs ] After all this time, why can’t you let this go? Unless you still believe I have a secret love child here in port charles. Hold on. Jordan, are you implying that someone else has a child out there? And that person is related to me? I had no idea things got so bad with willow. Why didn’t you tell me? Um. I-I’ve been meaning to talk to you. It’s just been so crazy.

[ Sighs ] I know. I-I get it. I just — I wish I was there to support you. Not just through that, but…through your breakup. Spencer told you? Cam did. Are you okay? Um… you know, it’s been rough. What did he say? Oh…not much. I-I think he was hurting so bad, he can’t talk about it.

[ Exhales deeply ] I hate that he’s hurting, and it’s because of me.

[ Sighs ] I’m sorry, joss. Don’t be. It’s on me.

[ Scoffs ] Just because you were the one who ended the relationship doesn’t mean that you’re not hurting, too. Thanks. I mean, I just saw how hard that you were trying to make it work with cameron. I just — [ Sighs ] You must have truly felt like there was no other option. I just wish that cameron could understand that. He’ll get there. What? What? You want to say something? No, I just — I — spencer just thinks that there was more to your break-up than you and cam growing apart. Spencer’s not wrong. Trina has…reservations about me seeking custody, but she is… supportive. Hmm. Well, that’s trina — loyal as they come. She’s a good friend. She’ll be meeting me here momentarily, actually. You used the “f” word. So you and trina are friends after all? For now. So you think that my scheme is risky, huh?

[ Chuckles ] I think I said,

“highly risky.” That doesn’t mean I’m against it, however. But didn’t dia miller tell you that your — your odds of winning custody are very slim? Still have to try. Mm. What if I could increase your chances exponentially without you even having to step foot in a courtroom? Nikolas: Esme, hi. Nikolas cassadine. You’re, um… spencer’s father. I’m also the one who arranged for your legal representation. Thank you. Um. It’s nice to know that there’s at least one person looking out for me, even if they’re being paid to do it.

[ Chuckles ] Make that two of us looking out for you. Dr. Webber is also here to help. Hello.

[ Chuckles softly ] I understand you’re experiencing some memory loss. Well, not just some — I can’t remember anything about who I am. We’ll try to get to the root of that and see if anything can be done to restore it. Or determine if your condition is permanent.

Michael: So, um, after the c-section, what will willow’s recovery be like? For most patients, it’s just a couple of weeks. Unfortunately, I’m not most patients. Okay, now, listen, I-I have [Laughs] Delivered my share of babies. Including one in the woods. Exactly. Maxie and bailey — they’re doing great. Mothers and infants, even under less-than-ideal circumstances, they never cease to astonish me with their ability to thrive.

[ Monitor beeping ] What do you feel, willow? Almost nothing. Excellent. Exactly how we want you to feel. So, what do you say, guys? Ready to meet your daughter? You know what? You’re right. There’s no point in rehashing a test you took years ago. No, no, it’s not only me. You were asking about trina’s test, too. Why? I shouldn’t have done that. But you did. And you obviously did it for a reason. This isn’t about a case, is it? From what trina told me, she took her test back in high school around the same time I took mine. Tj and I thought it was strange that your first test indicated a match right here in town — uh-huh. …And then vanished. I called the company — back then? Recently. A match can only disappear if that person withdraws their profile from the website. Trina said that she deleted her account after finding out she had a close match here in port charles. Jordan, are you telling me you think that curtis and portia are related to each other? Here we are. Back with the second one. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thanks, man. So, willow — she’s having a c-section today. She is, yeah. So why are you here, man? Why aren’t you at the hospital? I have plenty of time to meet the baby. Plus, the waiting room is packed full of people looking after willow, including her mother — who is nina. Nina? Yes. Nina — w-w– …is willow’s mother. You know, nina gave birth to twins — nelle and willow. And — and then nina’s mother gave willow to harmony miller to raise. When did all of this come out? Just recently. Wow. [ Sighs ] Look, I don’t know if you know this, but, years ago, nina hired me to track down her missing child, and that’s when I eventually tracked down phyllis. I did not know that. Yeah, so you can imagine how invested I became. Yeah. Hard not to. You know, nina was crushed when she, uh — when she found out that nelle was her daughter, especially after she had died. She thought she had blown her only chance to become a mother. Turns out that, uh, she didn’T. Hmm. So were you the one who uncovered the truth? No, no, it was — it was carly. Well, while harmony was dying, she told carly that nina was willow’s mother. Wait a minute. Harmony died months ago. So carly waited all this time to reveal the truth? So you didn’t break up with cam because you two grew apart? No, I did. Mostly. What’s the rest? I’m really sorry that I didn’t tell you. I mean, it must have been really weird to hear it from cam and not me. A little. I think I was just scared. How come? Well, I don’t feel too great about how it all went down. How did it go down? What — what’s — what’s going on?

[ Sighing ] Oh, god. It is way too much to get into right now, but I promise I will tell you everything. You better. I’ll text you after the memorial. You won’t be too busy with spencer? What’s going on there? Hmm… we’re friends again. For real this time. And you trust him after everything that’s happened? Spencer’s changed. And do you really believe that? Avoiding court sounds ideal. Doesn’t it? How? Leverage. Blackmail. Potato, “potahto.” It would have to be legit, something that he absolutely cannot get out of. Oh, trust me. There’s one thing in this world that nikolas doesn’t want coming to light — and this is it. Could he go to jail? Even if he doesn’t, it will irreparably harm his reputation. Can’t have that. Certainly not. What is that? Dynamite. And if you use it, it’ll clear any and all obstacles in your path.

A thousand times? Why — why can’t I? Okay, there’s a big difference. Cameron and I never had feelings for spencer that went beyond friendship. W-well, speaking of… do you think you two will be able to stay friends? Cam and me? Well, I’d — I’d like to say “yes.” I know that I want him in my life. But ultimately, that’s up to cam.

[ Cellphone chimes ] And my niece is on her way. Oh! So I got to go. Yeah, you do.

[ Sighs ] We’ll continue this later. Yes. Alright. And kiss that little girl for me, please. I will. Britt was a really brave woman. Tell spencer I’m really sorry. I will. There’s a web address on here. Go to it and you’ll find a video. A video…of what? Something that will give you power over nikolas. Why? Why what? Why are you helping me? My father already gave you what you wanted. All the wyndemeres in the world wouldn’t make up for his betrayal. Betrayals.

[ Breathes sharply ] But let me warn you, spencer, you cannot unsee this. And if you choose to use it against your father, there will be no going back. You will be his sworn enemy. Are you ready for that? I can’t let him parent another child. Okay. Thank you, ava. Unless you’re having second thoughts. I no longer care what happens to your father. He will resent you, too, you know. Assuming that he’s going to know where I got this. Oh, he’ll know. But not to worry. I’m an expert at watching my back. I’m assuming you had cognitive and diagnostic testing at general hospital? It felt like they ran every test under the sun. And no sign of a brain injury? That’s what they say. Last question — what’s your earliest memory? Um… seeing spencer and his friend on that ship before I collapsed. Your son seems very kind. I hope he gets that from you.

[ Chuckles ] Well, from everything you’ve told me, I’m leaning towards dissociative amnesia. What’s that? It’s when someone is unable to recall important personal information, as opposed to not being able to recall a few hours, or even days. You can’t recall your identity. This amnesia is usually caused by trauma or stress. Which, considering you washed up on a boat, you’ve clearly endured plenty of. Is it fixable? Psycho and cognitive therapies have proven valuable in these instances. That’s great. So you can help me regain my memory. There’s also clinical hypnosis, isn’t there? Dr. Webber is an expert in the field. If hypnosis can help, then [Chuckles] I am all in. I need to remember who I am so I can help raise your grandchild right. Willow, I’m going in to get your baby now. You’ll feel pressure and a tugging sensation, but no pain. Okay. You got this. Elizabeth: You’re doing great, willow. Home stretch. Almost there.

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Baby crying ] She’s here. Our daughter’s here. Yes, she is. And apparently, she wants us all to know it. Is the baby okay? Elizabeth: She’s perfect. Told you. Yes, you did.

[ Sobs ]

[ Baby whines ] Is curtis about to marry his own kid?! No. No. Curtis and portia are not related. Oh, thank god. For a minute there, I was worried that whatever this is would threaten the wedding. Jordan…? What are you not saying? This is your family matter, not mine.

My family? This isn’t about curtis and portia, it’s about me and trina. If she was my first match, a-am I a distant relative of her father? No, no, that — that can’t be right because the indicator says it’s a closer relation. And if I’m not related to portia or taggert, how could I poss– unless taggert isn’t trina’s father — and curtis is.

[ Baby cries ] Hi, baby! Austin: Does she have a name? No, not yet. We were afraid to make plans. Well, you better put your thinking caps on. She can’t go by “baby girl” forever.

[ Laughs ] Uh, we can’t thank you enough. I wish dr. Randolph was here, too, but… everyone here has been — been so supportive, and you made an incredibly difficult situation more tolerable. Yes. All of you. And dr. Westbourne. Her memorial is today? She helped us get this far. We’ll never forget it. Hi, baby. Let’s get you to recovery so you can hold your daughter. Sounds good to me.

[ Chuckles ] And while you get settled, nurse baldwin will go with her to the nicu for a routine exam. Okay. Okay. Okay.[ Baby coos ]

[ Chuckles ] Can you go with her? I don’t want our little girl to be alone.

[ Chuckles ] Our little girl. We have a daughter.

[ Laughs ] You sound surprised. I’m just — I’m just in awe.

[ Both sigh ] And I’m so incredibly grateful.

[ Chuckles ] Me, too.

[ Sobs ]

[ Sniffles ] Oh, I miss you. I miss you, too. We should have dinner soon. Maybe at my new home. You’re moving? Y– back to wyndemere. I thought you said “new.” It’s newly mine and mine alone. We’ll talk soon, okay? Okay. Hey. Hi. I’m confused. Okay.

[ Chuckles ] So your father sold wyndemere to ava? No, he gave it to her. Why?

[ Breathes sharply ] Um, believe me, he didn’t do it willingly. [ Laughs ] And what did she give you? I’m sorry? When I walked in here, she was giving you a slip of paper. Okay. Never mind. You don’t have to tell me. No, it’s okay. Um. I want to tell you. No more secrets between us anymore, right?

[ Sniffles ]

[ Clears throat ]

[ Breathes deeply ] It is a link to a video. Evidence of my father at his worst and, apparently, just what I need to beat him out for custody of esme’s baby. Huh. That sounds… sketchy at best. And I don’t want to even think about what “worst” is. You don’t trust ava? I do, but I also have no illusions about ava. Are you sure you want to use what’s on that video? It was nice meeting you, esme. I wish you nothing but the best. Thank you…? I’ll be right back.

[ Whispering ] What is wrong with you? I’m not sure what you mean. You never mentioned that woman was pregnant! Does it matter?

[ Scoffs ] You’re asking me to influence and exploit someone carrying your own grandchild? That baby is not my grandchild. Then why did she s– you know what? I don’t care. You know this is plain unethical. You know it. And you’ve never done anything unethical, have you? Why don’t we call your daughter and ask her?

[ Sighs ] God help you. If only.

[ Exhales deeply ] You and carly are good friends. We are. And she never let on about nina and willow? I wish she had. Then nina would have known a lot sooner that she was willow’s mom. What about your search for willow’s birth parents? Wasn’t carly helping you with that? Yeah, I thought so, too. Turns out that she was impeding the progress so the truth wouldn’t come to light. Wow. Yeah. Wow. Drew, tell me you didn’t let that go. How long have you known? I don’t know anything for sure. But you suspect! Yes. Curtis and portia’s affair… would line up with how old trina is. Stella — why didn’t curtis tell me?! He doesn’t know. Oh, my god. He doesn’t know. None of us do. Not even trina. Have you and portia discussed this? I urged her to tell curtis it was a possibility. Warned her that a marriage with secrets was doomed to fail, just like mine did. Well — well, maybe she mentioned it. Maybe she — she listened to you… and she talked to him after all. You know your nephew, stella. Do you really think curtis could go through with the wedding if he knew portia had kept that from him? No, no, he — he would need time to work through this, and even that wouldn’t suffice. So — so what now? What? Well, what are you going to do about it? I mean, you’ve been quite the detective, gathering the evidence. Now what? Are you going to tell curtis? It’s not my business to tell. Okay, well, if you won’t tell him, I will. Could be a sign that your digestive systemisn’t at its best. But a little metamucil everyday can help. Metamucil’s psyllium fiber gels to trap and remove the waste that weighs you down and also helps lower cholesterol and slows sugar absorption to promote healthy blood sugar levels. So you can f eel lighterand more energetic. With daisy sour cream every bite gets betterevery dollop every squeeze every moment together pop it off pick it up you can never get enough when you do do a dollop of daisy good food tastes better with a dollop of daisy do a dollop do do a dollop yeah everything tastes better with a dollop of daisy h a long way sinceyou came back to port charles after you pulled all that crap. Fun times. So if you’re serious about getting custody of your sister or brother — I am. Then shouldn’t you go about it the right way? In an ideal world, yes. But the “right way” isn’t guaranteed to work.

[ Sighs ] You know, I’ve — I’ve been telling people you’ve changed. I have changed. And I’m not saying that I’m going to use whatever is in this video for sure, but I am saying that I need to look at it in order to know. Trina, I could have lied to you, but I told you because I trust you. I appreciate that. I really do. But what if I’m not on board with you fighting dirty? Even if it means saving my little sibling, trina? Who is going to save you? I thought that was your job.

[ Scoffs ] Trina, for once, this isn’t about me. This is about protecting an innocent life. And I’m going to do whatever I have to do, starting with watching that video.

[ Breathes deeply ] Fine. But you’re not watching it alone. I am not okay with what carly did, and she is well aware of that. Now, I got to take a look at the fit here.

[ Laughs ] See [Laughs] How good everything looks. Come on, now. I would say this is tailored to your specifications. Don’t I look good? So, does the wedding feel real? Oh, brother, it is feeling realer by the day. I’m just counting the minutes. And I got to say, I am jazzed to have you standing by my side. It’s a privilege, alright? I will always stand by you — just the way that you have stood by me. The way I will always stand by nina. And we’re back.

[ Laughs ] Drew, I just — I don’t appreciate what carly did to nina or to you. Well, okay, so for what it’s worth, carly does truly regret lying to me. Mm-hmm. But not to nina. Look, drew, I-I-I don’t know. Carly’s going to do what carly’s going to do, but I’m just really glad the two of y’all never got together.

[ Sighs ] Stella, now, hold on. You are not talking me out of this. Just stop and think. What will you accomplish by telling curtis something that will blow up his life? I will be giving him the courtesy of the truth. No, you’ll be sharing an unproven theory. Listen, I’m with you, okay? I think curtis has a right to know. But don’t you think he should hear it from portia, his fiancée, the possible — possible — mother of his child? And not for nothing — don’t forget you have a history of meddling. I meddle out of love.

I know that. But curtis could perceive it differently, especially if it turns out we’re wrong. Well, then, let’s find out. What, if we’re wrong? Yes, before curtis walks down that aisle.

[ Sighs ]

[ Both sigh ] Are you sure? Last chance to bail. We’re in this together.

[ Cellphone beeps ]

“I, nikolas cassadine, of sound mind and body, do hereby acknowledge and confess that I, and I alone, am responsible for the disappearance of esme prince.” Is dr. Webber upset, mr. Cassadine? Not at all. And please — call me nikolas.

[ Sighs ] I thought I said something wrong or — nothing you said was wrong. But one part did confuse me. What gave you the impression that spencer is the father of your baby? As we discussed, it was a very simple process to collect the cord blood. Only took about 10 minutes. Is michael with the baby? Michael’s with your daughter in the nicu. We have to keep an eye on jonah. I thought you hadn’t picked out a name yet.

[ Softly ] He can’t slip away again. Willow, what’s today’s date? It’s the fourth of july. Bp’s dropping.

[ Monitor beeping slowly ] She’s hemorrhaging. Give her oxytocin bolus and methergine im. Call a code ob. Willow, I need you to keep talking to me. Willow! Willow!

Well, that’s a bold statement. You don’t agree? That it’s a good thing carly and i never got together? Yeah, man, lies are hard to get past. Oh, this coming from a guy who said he’d never forgive his father, and now look at the two of you. Fair point. I hear a “but” coming. So you might as well just go ahead and say it. But it was from marshall, my dad, okay? That was family, okay? His lies were to protect me. Well, in carly’s mind, she was protecting her family. At the expense of someone else’S. If you want to be friends with carly, look, that’s all you, okay? But if someone had kept a life-altering secret like that from me? I just — there’s no getting past that. The only way to be sure is a dna test. And we can’t do that without curtis and trina’s consent. What, are you telling me that my hands are tied, and that’s it?

[ Scoffs ] I’m saying it’s not our place. Well, I don’t accept that. What am I supposed to do? Officiate curtis and portia’s wedding like everything is fine and dandy? Yes, because that’s what they asked you to do. Well, that’s insane. I will not stand by and watch the woman who’s lying to my nephew’s face walk down the aisle and marry him. No way, no how! Nikolas: Any chance I had of reconciling with spencer was ruined. In effect, esme destroyed my life. When she attacked me on the turret, relishing every second, I grabbed her in a fit of rage and pushed her to her death. Honestly, my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner to spare the people I love the pain I’ve caused them. This I solemnly swear.

[ Cellphone beeps ] Spencer came to see me at the hospital, and he said that he might be the baby’s father. I’m sorry, esme. I’m not sure why spencer told you that. He’s not the father.

[ Sighs ] I was really hoping that I’d found my baby’s family. You have. That baby is more loved and wanted than you can imagine. And how do you know that? Because it’s mine. You need some rest. Lizzie, you look exhausted.

[ Sighs ] It’s elizabeth, mom, not lizzie. What can I do for you? Nothing. My hope is to do something for you. Oh, hey, doc. You know, I made an appointment with that plastic surgeon you recommended. And so, pretty soon, this scar from the stabbing will be a thing of the past. That’d be great. Yeah. Listen, I’m — I’m really sorry that you walked in on that scene in my office. I — I — I’d like to apologize for that. No, no, no, no. If there’s anybody who understands complicated family dynamics, you’re looking at her. Yeah. Would that all scars were so easily fixed.

[ Cellphone beeps ] Yeah, right on. Excuse me. This is an emergency. Yeah, well, I-I certainly hope whoever it is, is — is okay, so…

[ Monitor beeping, baby fusses ] You have no idea [Sighs] How loved you are. But you will. That’s a promise. Is this my niece? Yeah, that’s her, in all her glory.

[ Gasps ] Oh! Michael, congratulations. Thank you. So the surgery went okay? Yeah, everything went great. Oh, thank goodness. And now she’s here.

[ Both chuckle ] You know, I’m biased, but I cannot handle how beautiful she is. Yeah, right? Yeah, just like her mother.

[ Monitor beeping ]

[ Monitor beeping slowly ] Dr. Navarro: Hand me the clamp. Stay with me, willow. Suture scissors and retractor. Woman: Got it.

[ Monitor alarm blaring ] She’s going into v-tach. We need to defibrillate.

[ Monitor alarm blaring ] Charge to 200.

[ Paddles whine ] Clear!

[ Thump ]

[ Alarm continues ] Charge again. Resume compression. Get ready 1 milligram epi. Don’t be afraid, willow. You’re not alone.

Katie: Wait, so… you’re the reason why bill is able to blackmail steffy and finn into not testifying against sheila because–

Taylor: Yes, that’s what I’m saying. It’s– it’s true.

Steffy: Mom, don’T.

Taylor: Bill is using sheila’s freedom for mine.

Katie: Oh, my god.

Taylor: If sheila goes to prison, so do I. Because of what I did all those years ago. I shot bill.

[ Katie scoffs ]

Sheila: Oh, I love moments like this. Just the two of us all alone, holding each other. I used to be so phonetic, you know. I– I just– I– I just didn’t know how to– to be.

Bill: I’d say you’re getting the hang of it.

[ Sheila laughing ]

Sheila: You have taught me a new way to live. You’ve given me a– a second chance at life, bill. And– and I can’t– I can’t even begin to tell you how humbled and grateful I am. Really.

Deacon: Okay, great. So, four people at seven o’clock? Okay. Thank you very much. Bye-bye.

Hope: Oh, hello.

Deacon: Hey! Look at this. My two favorite ladies.

Brooke: Look at you, running your restaurant.

Deacon: I know. It’s kinda hard to believe, right?

Hope: No, not at all. All you needed was a chance.

Brooke: And when that chance came, you made it count in a major way. The new owner of il giardino. Congratulations, deacon. I am so proud of you.

Hope: We both are.

[ Hope laughing ]

Brooke: So, how does it feel to own your own restaurant?

Deacon: It’s a lot of work, let me tell you. I’ve been here pretty much 24/7. So, my vision for this place is that I want it to be as authentic as possible. I’m talking all locally sourced ingredients, and I’m gonna bring in the finest olive oil. And I’m even thinking of doing a rooftop garden so I’ve got the freshest herbs.

Brooke: Wow. Impressive. I’m really happy for you.

Deacon: Thanks, brooke. I really appreciate your support. And you guys have perfect timing. Uh, I need a little bit of your help. Okay? Get a little feedback.

Brooke: Sure.

Deacon: Okay. Thank you. Uh, I am trying to get my signature pizza just perfect. And, uh, what I need is for you both to try a slice and give me your honest opinion. Oh, wait. Okay.

Brooke: Oh, you drive a hard bargain.

Hope: I know, right?

Brooke: Mm.

Deacon: There you go. All right. Dig in.

Brooke: Okay.

Hope: Mm. Okay.

Brooke: Okay, here goes.

Deacon: Okay.

Brooke: Mm.

Hope: Mm.

Brooke: That’s good.

Deacon: It’s missing something though, right?

Hope & brooke: Mm…

Hope: You know, now that you say that, I mean, it’s just my preference, but I know I do prefer a bit of a thinner crust.

Deacon: Okay, I am importing my own water for this, so…

Hope: Oh, well, it’s great because the crust makes the pizza, right?

Brooke: The sauce could be a little less… american and more italian.

Deacon: Okay.

Brooke: Mm. Were the tomatoes cooked down or did you use the paste?

Deacon: I think for this one I– I don’t–

Hope: Mm. And, you know, again, it’s just my preference, but a little bit of smoked mozzarella really goes a long way. Mm. Mm-hmm.

Brooke: And the cook time could be a hair shorter, just so it’s not so crispy.

Deacon: Okay. This is all valuable input.

Hope: Mm-hmm. But, you know, it is the first taste. Um, so, I do think I am going to need a– an another slice for, um, evaluation purposes.

Brooke: Mm-hmm. Make that two.

Deacon: Okay. I– I see what you’re doing here. This is– you guys are messing with me, right? All right, all right. But you can still have another slice.

Hope: That is great.

Brooke: Oh, thank goodness.

Deacon: Yes. Get in closer.

Bill: What are you saying?

That you would take me back?

If sheila goes to prison,

that you would forgive me?

That our family could be

one again?

Sheila: Oh, uh… you seem a little distracted.

Bill: I’m right here.

Sheila: Well, your body is right here. And I’m very happy about that. But your head seems a million miles away. Oh, come on, bill. Hey, whatever katie said, just put it out of your mind.

Katie: I can’t believe this.

Taylor: I know. I– I can hardly believe it myself. I–

Katie: All those years ago, when bill was shot, that was you? It was you. She is fearless

Brooke: So, hope told you sheila is out of prison?

Deacon: Yeah, she did.

Brooke: It’s outrageous! That woman is a criminal. She never should’ve gotten out of prison, but somehow, she always manages to land on her feet.

Hope: Yep. Sheila is free to terrorize innocent people yet again.

[ Brooke sighing] Dad?

Deacon: Hmm?

Hope: You okay?

Deacon: Yeah. No, I just– I guess I’m tired. You know, I’ve been so immersed with everything going on here, I– I don’t really know what else is going on.

Brooke: Oh, of course. I mean, why would you be thinking about sheila?

Sheila: This mood… has to do with katie?

Bill: Her visit got me thinking.

Sheila: About?

Bill: The past. What could’ve been.

Sheila: If only you had been different.

[ Bill sighing ] The logans and the forresters, they never accepted you. And katie and brooke, they gave you love on condition. And they– they twisted you. You constantly twisted yourself in knots over and over again to try to fit into the logan-forrester world. And– and what did that get you? Disappointment, abandonment. They left you time and time again. And then the worst part, taylor. She shot you in cold blood.

Steffy: Let’s not discuss this right now.

Katie: Are you kidding me?

Steffy: There’s a lot of moving parts, katie.

Katie: That’s why taylor here is gonna fit them all together.

Taylor: I’m going to try. I’m trying to piece them together myself. I don’t know what happened to me that night. I don’t know. I lost control. I– the only reference that I can think of, of that behavior is sheila. How she consistently disregards human life when she feels threatened or harmed. She has this darkness that she can’t control. She doesn’t know how to find the light. And that’s what makes her dangerous. But, you know, thank god not everybody is like that. Right? But– but there’s still a darkness that is inside of all of us.

Katie: I don’t know if I think that’s true, but go ahead.

Taylor: No, it’s– it’s human condition, katie. We all have a contrast of light and dark. And I don’t know what happened to me, but– but I allowed my rage and my anger to just take over me, just to wipe out any logical thought. Just block any light. I’m trying to understand what happened and I can’T.

Katie: I need to know exactly what happened that night. I know that people don’t think very highly of bill, especially now, but he is my son’s father. Will could’ve lost his dad forever. I mean, what were you thinking? What could have possibly possessed you to pick up a gun and shoot bill? If you think all pads are exactly the same…

Deacon: Hey, honey, uh, do you know the name of any good planners? Think I’m gonna do a relaunch. You know, generate a little buzz.

Hope: Yeah. Absolutely. I– I will send you a few contacts.

Deacon: All right. I appreciate it. You know, I’d also like to try and get a few good reviews here. Though I don’t know how that would fly in, uh, bill spencer’s publications. You haven’t noticed, he’s not exactly my biggest fan.

Hope: Yeah. Well, bill is not making the best decisions as of late.

Deacon: Hmm.

Brooke: Yeah. I am shocked. I mean, I– I’m really disappointed in bill actually shacking up with sheila and… blackmailing finn and steffy to keep her out of prison. I mean, I don’t get it. What’s going on in his head? What’s he doing?

Hope: A man would have to be crazy to develop feelings for someone like sheila carter.

Sheila: I’m sorry. Is it wrong of me to bring up taylor shooting you? If– if you don’t wanna talk about what happened–

Bill: It’s something I’ll never forget.

Sheila: Something I never guessed would happen in a million years. I’ll bet you it’s something taylor will never forget either. Now she’s gonna have to live with this for the rest of her life.

Katie: I need to know why, taylor. Why would you shoot bill? It goes against everything you supposedly stand for.

Taylor: It does. It does on every single level. I– I thought bill had done something unforgivable. I– I don’t know. I– I– I was– I was– I was consumed by– by this rage, by this anger. I– I– I went over to bill’s just to confront him. I– I never– I never was gonna kill him.

[ Wind howling ]

[ Classical music playing ] There were santa anas that night.

[ Wind howling ] The wind was howling. And– and the gates were open. I– I approached the door. There was classical music playing. It was loud. So I just walked in. I was so confused. I– I saw bill. He was– he was standing with his back to me. He was– he was drinking, looking out the terrace. And I– I– I looked around and– and I saw– I saw a gun. And I just picked it up. I picked it up and I… I started walking towards bill. All I could think about was this awful thing that he had done. What he had done. What a terrible person he was. And– and then I was not gonna let him get away with it. And then all of a s-sudden, I just– I pulled the trigger.

[ Taylor sobbing ] I did it.

Brooke: Sheila has zero redeeming qualities. She’s a criminal. She’s a sociopath. How could any man be in a relationship with her?

Hope: Well, maybe bill is going through his midlife crisis.

Brooke: Mm.

Hope: Or maybe he’s just going through another one of his self-destructive streaks again. I don’t know.

Brooke: Well, there’s self-destructive, and then there’s insane. I mean, maybe bill really has lost his mind. Or maybe sheila’s better at manipulating people than we thought. Maybe sheila is using bill, or bill could be using sheila.

Hope: Well, for what?

Brooke: I don’t know. I– I don’t know, honey. I’m just trying to make sense of all of this. I mean, how could he really have feelings for sheila? How could any man be in love with her?

Hope: I’m not exactly sure, but… I don– I just– I don’t think there is making any sense of this right now.

Brooke: No, but there’s got to be a reason. What is going on?

Sheila: What a horrible night that must have been for you. Being ambushed in your own living room. Shot in the back. You could’ve died, bill. It’s chilling to think that I could’ve lost you all those years ago. And before we ever had a chance to find one another.

Bill: Well, that didn’t happen.

Sheila: You know why?

Bill: Why?

Sheila: Because of this.

Bill: Mm-hmm.

Sheila: Us. We’re meant to be. I remember when you got shot. I didn’t know you well. Just remember the stunning news. How this incredible force of a man was– was taken down by a coward. And then to find out that it was taylor. God, she– she falls victim of the dark side. You know, I– I realize now that I am– I am not a monster. I simply made mistakes like everyone else. And I love how you understand that about me.

[ Sheila chuckles softly ]

Taylor: I am so sorry, katie.

Katie: You shot him and you just left him. You never gave it another thought?

Taylor: No, I did. Of course, I did. I shot someone, katie. I– I was horrified by what I did. I still am. Katie, I think about will and I think about if I would’ve taken his father out of this world, I couldn’t have lived with myself. I– I don’t know who I was that night. I– it wasn’t me. It wasn’T.

Steffy: Katie, you know my mom. She is a good person. Yes, she– she snapped that night. And– and I’m not condoning what she did, but it was a long time ago. We moved on. Bill– bill forgave my mother. He promised he wasn’t gonna say anything… until now.

Katie: I’m– I’m sorry, but this is– this is just a lot.

Taylor: I know.

Katie: I mean, I– I– I can’t even wrap my head around it. I– bill and I loved each other for a really long time, and he is the father of my son. And you could have killed him.

Taylor: I’m so sorry. I don’t know what to say. I–

Katie: Well, at least I know the whole story. But it still doesn’t answer the question of how sheila was able to get in his head. Find him at his most vulnerable and use this against him. Turn him against everyone that he loves. His kids, his grandkids. He’s putting them all in danger.

Steffy: You have a lot of questions. And yes, we want answers. But we need to figure out a way how to get her out of our lives. How we’re gonna stop sheila once and for all.

TV Interview!

Actors from "The Ark" on Syfy

Interview with actors and showrunners of “The Ark” on Syfy by Suzanne 1/27/23

I’ve watched 4 episodes of this show, and it’s already hooked me. Like the show’s creator, Dean Devlin, I’ve been a fan of good science fiction TV since I was a child. This is a good new show to add to the list. I hope it survives and does well. I’ve enjoyed many of Devlin’s shows, such as “Leverage” and “The Librarians.” Syfy was great about letting me interview most of the main cast from the show. I hope you enjoy the videos below of our interviews as much as I did!

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Jack: Hi.

Kyle: Do you have time to talk?

Jack: It’s about Marchetti?

Kyle: No. Personal stuff. Um…I want to know what’s going on with you and mom.

Jack: Yeah. Okay. Um, what is it you’re curious about?

Kyle: How serious the two of you are. I know things are going well right now.

Jack: Yes, they are.

Kyle: Do you really think that will last? Because I know you’ve been able to get past the lies and mistakes so far, but I think your relationship may be what finally blows up this family.

Diane: Summer. Do you have a minute?

Summer: Um, I just came home to check on Harrison really quick, and then I was running back to the office. Is — is it something Marchetti-related or…?

Devon: Oh, no, no, no. I would save that for the office. This is more personal.

Summer: [ Sighs ] Okay. What’s up?

Diane: Well, I get the sense that you’re less than thrilled that Jack and I are romantically involved again.

Summer: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. I don’t want to see Jack get hurt. And I really don’t want to see Kyle caught in the middle of the fallout when things go wrong, which I’m pretty certain that they will go wrong.

Chloe: You know, I just can’t believe we flew all the way to L.A. — I left Kevin with the kids — just to be rejected so harshly.

Sally: Yeah, I mean, what a colossal waste of time.

Chloe: Well, I’m not so worried about the time. It’s more about the mess I had to deal with when I got home.

Sally: I thought Kevin was pretty tidy around the house.

Chloe: [ Sighs ] Yeah, he is. But men are just very simple creatures. They can focus on the house and they can focus on the kids, but they cannot do both. You will learn this soon enough.

Sally: Okay. Well, that seems like a massive generalization. Maybe Nick will be different. I have to text him that I’m back.

Chloe: The point is, we could have been rejected just as easily here in genoa city.

Sally: I know. And as I said before, I-I’m really sorry. I knew that this venture would be a difficult climb, but i don’t understand why Jill would just slam the door in our face without actually hearing our pitch.

Chloe: You have no idea?

Sally: I think she said that she had a change of mind? I got the sense that maybe she learned something unpleasant about my history. But that also doesn’t make sense because the first time i met Jill, she seemed to admire the fact that I left my past behind and changed my life.

Chloe: So, she admired you, and then she wouldn’t let us in the door to meet with her. What the hell happened?

Victor: Business meetings get canceled all the time, son.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Why won’t you just give me a straight answer? Did you convince Jill to call off that meeting with sally and Chloe?

Victor: I talked to Jill, yeah.

Nick: About sally?

Victor: I gave her an honest assessment of sally’s qualifications.

Nick: [ Exhales heavily ] I knew it. You killed that meeting. It’s a meeting that meant nothing to you but everything to them. It’s not enough that sally was fired from Newman Media by Victoria for no good reason. Now you’re sabotaging opportunities for her?

Victor: Jill Abbott is a very clever businesswoman. She’s not gonna get involved with someone that’s not worth the effort. Whatever happened to sally spectra is her own doing.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]

Tucker: Oh, no. Have the tables finally turned? Has Diane driven you out of town?

Phyllis: You’re an ass.

Tucker: Where are you going?

Phyllis: I’m trying to catch a flight.

Tucker: Oh, yeah?

Phyllis: Mm.

Tucker: Business or personal trip?

Phyllis: Uh, a little bit of both. And unlike you, I will be successful at both. [ Chuckles ]

Lily: Yep, that’s right, Jill. Look, it’s not gonna be easy, but we’ll come up with a plan. Okay. I’ll talk to you soon. Bye.

Daniel: Sounded important.

Lily: Uh, yeah. If I’m talking to Jill, then it probably is. She doesn’t really chitchat.

Daniel: Hmm. So, no resolution yet on Devon taking Hamilton-winters back from chancellor?

Lily: No. We made him an offer. He declined and won’t budge. And neither will Jill.

Daniel: Which means you’re caught in the middle.

Lily: Yeah, exactly. And I have to figure out a way to make chancellor functioning and profitable in the meantime.

Daniel: That’s unfortunate. It must be incredibly difficult.

Lily: I feel like what you really want to ask me is, is there a future for your project?

Nick: Why are you trying to destroy sally?

Victor: Son, to be frank with you, I don’t give a damn about sally spectra, okay? So stop this nonsense. I know the kind of woman she is. She has ruined your brother. She’s gonna ruin you.

Nick: She did no such thing.

Victor: What the hell is he doing now? He’s sitting at jabot doing nothing, selling lipstick and perfume, only because he was infatuated with her! She has dragged him down!

Nick: No, it’s the other way around.

Victor: No!

Nick: He dragged her down. Sally’s the one with the work ethic and the ambition who makes the most of every opportunity.

Victor: Yeah, with the ambition. You’re right.

Nick: Adam has been handed everything over and over again, dad, and he blows them all up, whether it’s career or romance. He fails at everything because of his attitude. And for you to assume I’m gonna end up like Adam for any reason at all is beyond insulting.

Sally: I just can’t believe my past would be an obstacle to starting this company. I’m really sorry. You should not be punished for the things that I’ve done.

Chloe: It’s okay. My own sordid past has reared its ugly head once in a while. And Jill is not the only game in town. We just need to find funding somewhere. What about Nick’s offer to loan us the money?

Sally: No. No, absolutely not. My situation with him is already uncomfortable enough now that he knows that I’m pregnant, okay? So let’s not add the money issue to the situation. I’m already worried that he’s gonna feel obligated to make things more serious than he might have wanted.

Chloe: But I thought he cleared all that up.

Sally: Nick has been sweet and supportive, but it’s not like we, you know, spoke about anything long term. You know, there’s a lot of time between now and the miracle of childbirth. You know, anything could happen. I mean, Nick could decide to up and bail on us altogether.

Chloe: Nick would never do that. He is such a good guy.

Sally: Yeah. He’s the best. I’m just not feeling very secure right now. What Nick and I have is really great. He’s sexy and he’s sweet and he’s honest. But like I said, things could change.

Chloe: [ Sighs ] The Adam possibility.

Adam: What is the Adam possibility?

Phyllis: And can you please, please tell them to just leave all my mail and the package that I’m expecting back here until i get back from Portugal, please?

Tucker: Portugal? Isn’t that where Daniel’s partner and daughter are living now? That’s interesting.

Phyllis: Well, that’s interesting to me, of course. It shouldn’t be interesting to you.

Tucker: Is Daniel going with you?

Phyllis: What I do and what my son does — it’s none of your business. By the way, I told my son to keep away from you.

Tucker: So, he’s sticking around in town?

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] It’s not your concern.

Tucker: Yeah. He’s sticking around, isn’t he? Gonna work on his gaming platform. Yeah, he’s got a bold vision. When I talked to him, I was really impressed with how creative he is, and yet he’s also savvy, focused. It’s a nice combination.

Phyllis: Leave my son alone.

Tucker: Come on. He’s got the hottest project in town. It would be, uh — [ Chuckles ] It would be business malpractice if I didn’t try to get a piece of it.

Phyllis: Um, you seem desperate, Tucker.

Tucker: Is that so?

Phyllis: Yeah, because you’re a billionaire. You own a huge conglomerate. You’re here in this sleepy town trying to poach a gaming platform. I mean, what is that? You’re trying to take it out from under chancellor-winters. That’s your son’s company. What are you doing? You know, I’ll tell you. It seems like you haven’t had a win in a while.

Tucker: Mm.

Phyllis: And you’re just kind of jonesing for one. Just saying.

Tucker: Yeah. Well, Phyllis, you have a nice trip. [ Chuckles ]

Phyllis: Damn it.

Daniel: You’re right. I am concerned about the future of omega sphere. I came to you with a business venture, and you signed on. But I know that that was in part because of our friendship. And, yes, this project means the world to me and I want nothing more than to move forward with it, but I’m also worried about what all this turmoil at your company is doing to you. Are you okay?

Lily: Yeah. I’m fine. I just — I have a lot going on right now.

Daniel: Well, if anyone can handle that, it’s you.

Lily: [ Sighs ] Thank you. I just — I — I feel very overwhelmed, you know, ’cause I want to do right by you. I want to do right by Jill, by the company. But it’s like Devon has thrown everything into chaos. I mean, he’s ready to enter a lawsuit with chancellor. And so we have to shelve the IPO again, you know? And I don’t have Billy. I don’t have Nate or Audra. So I just feel like I’m entering this hurricane by myself.

Daniel: Well, you’re not totally alone.

Lily: [ Sighs ] Yeah, I don’t think you can really help me with this one.

Daniel: I meant Jill. And you must have some good, smart people at the company that you can rely on.

Lily: Yeah, no, of — of course I do. I just have to be realistic about what could happen because I think being in denial could be a recipe for disaster.

Jack: Look, I appreciate your concerns. I want to alleviate them. What is it that has you worried about my relationship with your mother?

Kyle: All of it.

Jack: Can you be more specific?

Kyle: Your past. Look, you’ve tried this before. It has always blown up. I mean, she faked her own death, which I have forgiven her for, but it’s —

Jack: You’re worried that she’s going to revert to old patterns.

Kyle: Yes.

[ Sighs ] I love her. I love seeing her with Harrison. But she is who she is. She doesn’t play by the rules. Look at this situation with stark.

Jack: Wait — in fairness, most of that plan was my idea. No, you can’t judge her for that. Look, I don’t think that what she did to get out from under stark’s thumb is indicative of any moral failing.

Kyle: There were already shady things happening.

Jack: Yes, because there were difficult circumstances. Kyle, I would do the same thing again in a heartbeat. It worked. Look, I will take full responsibility. The last thing I want is for my decisions to come between you and your mother.

Kyle: You really care about her, don’t you?

Jack: I really do.

Kyle: After all this time, how do you know the two of you will be a good fit now?

Jack: We are older. We are wiser. We have both mellowed. We are each more accepting of the other’s faults.

Kyle: You sure the two of you aren’t in denial?

Jack: Our eyes are wide open.

Kyle: What if she hurts you? What if you hurt her? What if she runs away and leaves us again? There will be no coming back from that, not for me.

Diane: You’re bound to have doubts. And who knows? Maybe Jack and I won’t last. But I can tell you that I have deep affection for him.

Summer: That I believe.

Diane: Yeah, he’s thoughtful and considerate. He — he makes me happy. And I feel stronger when I’m with Jack, if that makes any sense.

Summer: Sure. I get the same feeling from Kyle.

Diane: Well, I’m going to do whatever I can to make things work. And, really, the only thing i see getting in our way is your mother.

Summer: I really don’t think you should worry about her.

Diane: [ Chuckles ] Really? Phyllis has such deep resentment and anger towards me. She’s determined to cause me not just trouble, but pain. And, frankly, it’s a little disturbing. And, you know, where does that leave Jack?

Summer: What do you mean?

Diane: Well, she claims that she cares about him, but she clearly doesn’t respect his choices.

Summer: [ Laughs ] She might not agree with his choices, but I — I don’t think it’s about respect. And honestly, Diane, if you think that my mom is the only thing that could disrupt your happiness, you’re either naive or you’re just as steeped in those old hatreds as you claim she is.

Diane: I’m not naive.

Summer: So, you realize that you could really hurt Jack and Kyle and Harrison with all of this. And they care about you. They trust you. And you’re looking for a scapegoat for when things go wrong.

Diane: Not at all.

Summer: So then why would you just randomly bring up my mom?

Diane: There’s nothing random about it. But you know what? Fair enough. I have survived Phyllis so far, and I will continue to do so. I just hope she puts her energy elsewhere because I have had more than enough of her attention, and, sadly, nothing good ever comes from it.

Nick: So, you think sally is the reason Adam is making so many bad decisions lately.

Victor: Yeah. What do you think he’s doing? He’s doing that ridiculous job at jabot. He’s sleepwalking through his job. He’s failing because of her — sally spectra. The same thing will happen to you.

Nick: How do you know how he’s doing at jabot? You spying on him, dad?

Victor: What the hell do you think?

Nick: What are you planning? You know what? I already know. You hope he fails so he has to come crawling back to Newman yet again.

Victor: I want him here. I want him with his family and with my company.

Nick: You are obsessed with bringing him back to the family. When are you going to get it? It never, ever works. This is getting pathetic.

Victor: This is my company, son. I don’t give a damn who’s CEO or coo. This is my company.

Nick: But now your obsession is spilling over to sally, and i won’t stand for it. She doesn’t deserve this kind of treatment. I’m mad at you, and I’m disappointed in Jill. She doesn’t deserve this kind of interference, especially not right now.

Victor: What do you mean, “especially not right now”?

Nick: She just needs a break, alright? She’s had a rough go of it ever since she was fired from Newman. Now, if I can’t convince you to leave her be for her sake or for mine, then maybe you need to do it for the company.

Victor: What do you mean by that?

Nick: Things are going well here, right?

Victor: Right.

Nick: I love working with mom and Vick. But if you continue down this path and continue to harass sally, given everything, do not force me to choose between her and this company.

Victor: What do you mean by “given everything”? What are you not telling me?

[ Door opens ]

Victoria: Let me guess. This is about Nick and sally.

Chloe: Eavesdrop much?

Adam: I just walked in and i heard my name. So maybe try talking a few decibels softer. So, what’s the Adam possibility?

Sally: Chloe was just talking about the possibility of you luring me up onto another rooftop to win me back. Only in this version, you don’t screw it up by insulting me.

Chloe: And of course you not screwing up is the worst possibility I could ever imagine.

Adam: Well, I’m just glad to be in your thoughts, Chloe. Although I do find it odd that you’re speculating on sally and I reuniting. I mean, what would make you think that’s possible? You made it clear that we’re done. Has something changed for you?

Jack: I should have known this would lead to some complicated emotions for you, that you would see any change in your parents’ relationship as leading to a chaos and eventual loss.

Kyle: I’m not that pessimistic. But I wanted to let you know it’s on my mind.

Jack: Of course it is. You can forgive your mother for leaving you, but you can never forget.

Kyle: I just think this could end badly — for all of us.

Kyle: I had the same feelings when I let Dina back into my life. I now regret the time I could have spent with her when I was trying to anticipate the very worst. I hope you can avoid that particular pitfall.

Kyle: Maybe I will. I’m just not there yet.

Jack: Look, the most important thing for you to know now is that Diane and I are happy. It’s very early, Kyle. Do we want this to lead to more? Do we want it to grow? Yes, but in a happy, healthy way. So, there is nothing dangerous about my relationship with her.

Kyle: But that’s the hard part for me. Of course I want the two of you to be happy. Part of me is thrilled you’re back together, but —

Jack: Kyle, Kyle, don’t worry. Whatever happens, your family will be okay. It is said that I am a hopeless romantic. Okay. I won’t deny that. I am also very pragmatic. I knew when it was time to end my relationship with Phyllis. Look, I think what I have with your mother is very special, but if this does not work out, we will both be fine. We will both be here for you and your family. That will never change.

Summer: I wouldn’t be too concerned about my mom. I find that she only really goes on the attack when someone she loves is threatened. It’s, um — it’s the mama bear phenomenon.

Diane: [ Laughs ] So, is that a warning for me to behave myself or risk the wrath of Phyllis?

Summer: No, not at all. Because, actually, I’ve realized recently that I share a lot of those same mama bear qualities. And Kyle and Harrison are my world. Their happiness means everything to me. So if someone hurts them…

Diane: So, that’s the warning.

Summer: I’m glad we had a chance to talk.

Adam: Come on, sally. Tell me what initiated the conversation about us reuniting.

[ Cellphone pings ]

Chloe: Ooh! Is that Nick?

Sally: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. He was just dealing with his dad. He wants to meet.

Chloe: Aww. He’s so sweet.

Adam: Mm.

Sally: Nothing has changed. You know, we both agreed that there is no future for us.

Adam: I seem to recall that conversation. But I also remember the context, where it took place.

Sally: No matter where or when that conversation took place, the point is, is that we both agreed that we don’t belong together.

Adam: And yet you and Chloe are here, talking about us.

Chloe: Well, you know me. I love coming up with doomsday scenarios.

Adam: You two enjoy your lunch, okay?

Sally: How am I gonna deal with nine months of this? I mean, what is he gonna think when I start showing?

[ Door opens ]

Phyllis: Hey!

Summer: Oh, hi.

Phyllis: Ohh, it’s freezing.

Summer: What are you doing here?

Phyllis: Okay, I wanted to tell you I’m going out of town. Um, I just wanted to let you know.

Summer: Okay. Where — where are you going?

Phyllis: Portugal. Yes. I’m going to meet with Heather. [ Sighs ] I’m gonna convince her to take your brother back.

Summer: Mom, that is a monumentally bad idea. That is between Heather and Daniel. You can’t just jet off to Europe and try to fix it.

Phyllis: Well, I can. And that’s what I’m doing.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: My relationship with Heather is very, very good. She respects me.

Summer: Heather? Really? And Daniel is okay with this?

Phyllis: He doesn’t know. I need you to keep it quiet. Listen, I need to do this. I need to fix this for your brother. I’ve got to make this right.

Daniel: There is no one tougher than you. I mean, think of everything that you’ve been through. This is just a bump in the road compared to — I don’t know — fighting cancer.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Well, thank you for the moral support, but I could use some business nuts and bolts right now.

Daniel: I could also contribute support to chancellor’s bottom line once my platform launches to success and acclaim.

Lily: [ Laughs ] That’s true. That’ll be a big revenue stream for us. Can it be ready this afternoon?

Daniel: [ Laughs ] Look, I get it. You need something that’s gonna bring in a lot of money right now. And that would help with your upcoming fight with Devon.

Lily: Yeah.

Daniel: You do currently have divisions that are very profitable. Maybe you should be focusing on those and not this video game platform that’s barely in development. And if you think that it is too much to swing right now for the company, that’s okay.

Lily: Wait. I’m sorry. Are you — are you backing out of our deal?

Daniel: No. I’m letting you off the hook. If you feel like my project is just another burden to you, then get rid of it. Lighten the load.

Chloe: You still have some time to come up with a plan. But you can hide it for a while. You just need to wear some, you know, baggy clothes.

Sally: I don’t like baggy. What about flowing?

Chloe: Sure. Call it whatever you want. But you’re not going to be wearing leather pants. I can tell you that much.

Sally: Okay. Well, the longer I can keep Adam from suspecting, the better.

Chloe: Okay, well, the problem is, is that he is so keenly aware of every little detail. And he is the most suspicious person I’ve ever met.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Nick: Hey. So glad you’re back.

Sally: So glad to be home.

[ Both smooch ]

Sally: I’ve never been healthier.

Victoria: What happened with sally?

Victor: Nothing that wasn’t warranted, you know? Both of your brothers are obviously very attracted to that woman. And as far as I’m concerned, she should get the hell out of town. And the reason she won’t is because she needs to latch onto one of them. You know why? She needs the money.

Victoria: Ah, I see. So you are hoping that she will leave by eliminating her opportunities. And Nicholas caught onto that and he’s dug in his heels. I get it now.

Victor: And then he said that he would choose her over our family, over our company. That’s absolutely preposterous. Why would he do that? I mean, she was a fling. Or is a fling. Nothing more than that. Why would he say something like that? There’s something going on that you and I don’t know about.

Victoria: I’m not her biggest fan, either. But I think we should just forget about sally. We should let Nicholas live his life. He survived Phyllis. He can survive this relationship, too.

Victor: Eh, I’m not so sure.

Victoria: Daddy, please. Everything is running so smoothly at Newman. Please don’t risk driving Nicholas away again.

Victor: [ Breathes deeply ]

Chloe: Well, I’m gonna leave the two of you to catch up.

Nick: See you, Chloe.

Chloe: Bye.

Sally: Well, I was hoping our return to L.A. Would be cause for celebration.

Nick: Oh, we’re gonna celebrate. Seriously. I will order some sparkling cider and we can go crazy ’cause very soon there is going to be some good news for you.

Sally: I hope so.

Nick: I’m really sorry your meeting with Jill fell through.

Sally: Yeah, I don’t know what happened. It was so abrupt, and it felt personal. I don’t know. I just assumed maybe someone from los Angeles told her some awful story about me.

[ Sighs ] It just sucks because I’ve changed so much since I’ve been here. You know, and I’m sure Jill loves a good redemption story, so — I don’t know — there has to be some way to salvage it.

Nick: Hey, you know, Jill may not be the only person who likes your idea.

Sally: Yeah. Chloe said that.

Nick: If you were willing to work with chancellor-winters, would you consider bringing your pitch to Newman?

Sally: [ Laughs ] Yes, I’m sure Victor and Victoria would love to have me on their payroll again. And even if I could get them to buy the idea, they would make my life a living hell just for the sport of it.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Yeah. You might be right about that.

Sally: Look, I really appreciate the idea, but I am determined to get this company started on my own. Chloe and I really need to make it work. And I’m not gonna be the kind of person that just folds at any kind of setback.

Nick: Well, I think the most important thing is that you don’t worry about it, alright? I don’t want you to get stressed. It’s not good for you. And you know what I’m talking about.

Sally: Yeah. I do.

Lily: No, no, no, no. You are not getting away that easy. I want omega sphere, okay? This is the perfect opportunity. And we are the perfect home for it. We’re gonna do amazing things together. You said you would give me a week, right? So give me a week. I’m gonna get Jill on board, okay? I can do it. I just need you to trust me. Can you trust me?

Daniel: I can. I do, more than just about anyone else.

Lily: Thank you. I… I needed to hear that more than I even knew.

Summer: I’m sure that Heather does respect you, but that doesn’t mean that you can persuade her to take Daniel back.

Phyllis: Oh. I can. Listen, I’ve spent a lot of time with Heather and Lucy on my trips to savannah. I could talk to her, you know, woman to woman and let her know how far Daniel’s come.

Summer: Mom, you’re not exactly objective when it comes to Daniel.

Phyllis: Don’t you think your brother’s a good man?

Summer: Yeah, well, I’m not objective, either. He’s my brother. I’ve always thought he was a good man.

Phyllis: Exactly! He’s an incredible man. Incredible. I need to convince Heather that he just hit a rough patch. That’s it.

Summer: Mom, Daniel is not gonna be happy about this.

Phyllis: Well, I mean, you’re not gonna tell him. He’s not gonna know.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: And trust me — he’ll be plenty happy when Heather decides to take him back and give their relationship another try. Listen, I need you to do a couple things for me. First of all, if he or anybody else asks, I’m in Florida for a couple days, okay? And most importantly, do not let Daniel sell any part of his project to Tucker McCall while I’m gone.

Summer: How am I supposed to do that?

Phyllis: I don’t know. Just figure it out. If you see them together, separate them. Do what you got to do.

Summer: You know what, mom? You are so much better at that sort of thing. So why don’t you just — why don’t you stay here and you can keep Daniel and Tucker apart?

Phyllis: Ha ha. Nice try. Please do this.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: Listen, I’m doing this for your brother. I’d do the same thing for you.

Summer: That worries me.

Phyllis: You are an amazing woman. I love you so much. I believe in you. And the reason we butt heads is because we’re so much alike.

Summer: [ Inhales deeply ] I love you, too, mom.

Phyllis: I love you! Thank you! Ohh. Trust me. And wish me luck. Wish me luck.

Summer: Good luck.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ]

[ Door opens ]

[ Door closes ]

Music (“I swear”) plays

Victoria: You know, I think we should just forget about whatever’s going on with Nicholas and sally and Adam. Just forget about it and let’s focus on work right now.

Victor: Yeah. Do you have news?

Victoria: I do. After you shared what you learned, I had our people digging deeper into Tucker McCall’s finances.

Victor: And?

Victoria: His lender is growing very impatient. He’s late on some of his payments. Sometimes he doesn’t make them at all.

Victor: Hmm. A debt problem. Well… I like the sound of that.

Victoria: We buy up his debt. We own him.

Victor: You think like your father. I love that.

Daniel: [ Sighs ]

Tucker: Ah! Just the man I was looking for. I want to buy you a drink, and i want to explain to you in more detail why McCall unlimited is where you ought to be.

Jack: What a nice surprise.

Diane: Good. Hi.

Jack: Hi. Let me take your coat.

Diane: Oh, thank you. I just had an unsettling conversation with our daughter-in-law.

Jack: Oh? What’s on her mind?

Diane: Well, she clearly feels that this relationship is bound to fail and bring her family down with it.

Jack: I had a similar conversation with Kyle. Turns out you were right, what you said before, that he is not pleased that we are getting back together. You know what? I should have anticipated his concerns. They were legitimate.

Diane: Well, what are they?

Jack: Kyle thinks that if anything happens between the two of us, if things go wrong… that you’ll leave town.

Diane: What?

Jack: I guess a fear of abandonment is a hard thing to walk away from when you’ve lived with it for so long.

Diane: Oh, poor Kyle. Jack, are we selfish to be pursuing this? I mean, should we slow things down, maybe not rush things?

Jack: We are not rushing anything. We have known each other for decades.

Diane: [ Laughs ]

Jack: I think we will agree we have taken our time getting reacquainted. And we’re battle-tested. We have been through more — you and I — in the last couple of months than most couples ever go through.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Jack: And what’s most important — we both want this.

Diane: Mm. You’re right. But we have to agree that, whatever happens, we will be there for Kyle.

Jack: Of course we will. Right now, I just want to be here for you.

Diane: [ Laughs ] Well, good, ’cause here is the only place that I want to be.

Jack: Yeah?

Diane: Mmm.

Nick: You know, I’m just not that hungry.

Sally: I am.

[ Both laugh ]

[ Cellphone buzzing ]

Sally: I — I have to take this, but if the server comes, can you order two of everything on the menu for me?

Nick: Sure.

Sally: Thanks.

[ Footsteps departing ]

Adam: [ Clears throat ] Nicholas.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Adam. Hey, I don’t know if you’re aware of this or not, but I feel like I should give you a heads-up. Dad thinks he can lure you back to Newman.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] To the company or the family?

Nick: Both, actually.

Adam: Mm. Yeah. I, um, heard rumblings to that effect. I’m sure Victor has already got a plan in the works.

Nick: Oh, he definitely does.

Adam: Mm. Well, did you want to share that with me?

Nick: I think he’s gonna try and sabotage your position at jabot so Jack kicks you to the curb and then Dad will be there to welcome you with open arms.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Oh, yeah. I had a feeling he was gonna do something like that. But my question right now is, why do you care, Nick? Why would you tell me any of this?

Nick: I think you’re better off with Jack as a mentor than our father.

Adam: That’s your only motive in sharing this valuable information with me? You’re just looking out for my well-being?

Nick: I’m just trying to help, Adam.

Adam: And you really don’t want to see me back at Newman, though, right?

Nick: No, I don’t.

Adam: [ Laughs ] Oh, you really do have it all, don’t you?

Sally: Okay. Thank you, dr. Chandler. [ Sighs ]

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Hey, Steph. It’s me, a k, a, the jackass. Look, I know I don’t have the right to ask you for anything, but could you maybe just give me a chance to make this up to you? I’m talking groveling here. You and I had something so great going and I don’t want to give up on that. That’s all I wanted to say.

You’re right, Alex. There’s nothing left to say.

Hello, Alex. Hey, this price. Something I can do for you. I was looking for your father. My defense team could use another lawyer and I, I know he’s one of the very best. He is one of the best. Unfortunately he’s not here right now. No. I see. Um, as long as I’m here, um, put those man toys down and put on a shirt.

I’m gonna give you a piece of my mind.

Jack, you’re home. Hi. Hello. We’ve missed you. The kids are gonna be so happy to see you. What’s up? Is everything okay? No, I just cut Gwen outta my life for good. So if I understand you correctly, you chose Xander over your job, your home, and your relationship with your father.

You understand correctly? I don’t get me wrong, as you know, I find the man highly pleasurable to look at in that accent to die for. But is he really worth sacrificing everything else that matters to you? Especially when he’s still very much in love with his wife force papers. Just sign them, Xander. No, I will sir.

I still love. I love you. It’s all my heart. And don’t fight me on this. Just do the right thing for once. Let me go.

Voila. Our one and only genius Deprogrammer, doctor Roe, I told you I would find him stuff in and now he can put you back to the way you were before. When I was the only woman you loved

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

You asked her to do the right thing. She just refused. No. Jen, I told her that she didn’t testify against Sandra. I not only kick her out of this house, fire her from the spectator, but I’d essentially sonner and she still chose to cover for Xander. I never thought she’d define me like that, but she did.

She walked out the door

and now I’ve lost both my daughters. But you and your dad, you’ve gotten so close. We have and yet, and yeah.

Well, you very well known. When I first came to Salem, I, I wanted to destroy his family.

I was so angry at him for throwing me away. I devoted myself to getting revenge and I did terrible things to Jennifer advocate.

Yet my father, he was so guilty when he learned that Laura had sent my mother away without telling him that I existed, that he still, he still found in his heart to try and have a relationship with me. So it was all out of guilt, you mean? Of course. I mean, that’s how he was able to be so kind. So forgiving and how did I reward him By giving him trouble.

At every turn, you are being awfully hard on yourself. Connie, come on, Matt know it’s true now. I can’t seem to break that pattern. How hurting him, disappointing him.

You know, this last time he was so upset with me that I just accepted the fact that he would probably be better without me in his life because I love him

so much.

I decided to just do the unselfish thing and let him go,

which is what I ultimately had to do with Santa Sarah, please just. Just gimme a chance to try and explain to you what you thought you walked in on the other, what I thought I walked in on. I know what I saw. You were here with Gwen and you were both half naked. Yeah, but that was only cuz I was trying to drown my sorrows and cheap scotch and I got so sashed that Gwen had to shove me under the shower to sober me up and we both got a little wet and had to change clothes and, and nothing.

So there’s absolutely nothing romantic going on. So God’s honest truth. I’m begging you to believe. Please. Okay. I don’t understand. I thought Dr. Rolf was Mia that no one had seen or heard from him since he left Jakarta. Well, turns out Lee new is another thing he lied to me about. He’s been bankrolling Rolf the entire time.

Not completely. I never seize a Petri dishes. I specifically requested how, which is why our genie brainwashing slash. De programmer over here was headed to Salem to make sure that Lee followed through on his promises. Okay, and just how is it that you’re privy to all this information? Well, I figured that I would find something incriminating in Lee’s hotel room, so I made up a story that I wanted to get back together with him.

He let me in the room and I was able to find his burner phone, which then gave me Dr. Ball’s number, but Rolf is already on the way over here. It seems that fate wants us to be together.

It doesn’t matter if, I believe you are not

we’re here. When you came here the other night and you saw I’m going night together, you said it was a mistake coming here, but you never said why you came here in the first place. I came because,

nevermind, forget it.

It wasn’t to bring the divorce papers, was it?

No, it wasn’t.

Justin and Bonnie convinced me to give you another chance. But then you changed your mind because you saw Gwen now together. But as you know, that was all just a huge misunderstanding. There’s, there’s absolutely no reason not to give me another shot.

Let’s be real Gwe. You didn’t walk away from your father out of love and concern for him. You did it because you can’t quit Xander. You know? That’s the reason. Yes. Okay. That did enter my decision. Oh, Mattie, I know that you want me to testify against Sander and cut a deal and get us both off. And believe me, I was quite tempted when my father urged me to do so.

So yield to temptation. So what? Isand Falls’ heels in prison for a couple of years. You’ll still have your relationship with your father, Mattie. It could be so much more than just a few years. If they charged Sandra for Susan’s death, he could go to prison for the rest of his life. And the thought of that just, it was too painful for me.

I just couldn’t do it. And I realized that as, as much as I tried to tell myself to just let him go, as much as I told myself that we are just,

you’re right.

I just. I can’t give up on him,

and that’s because I’m still in love with him. Even if he doesn’t love me back.

I gave GU so many chances because God knows my family gave them to me. But Abigail went through such hell because of her. I blame myself for that.

Blame myself too. I believed Gwen’s lives. I doubted Abby’s commitment to our marriage, and then I betrayed her. No, you worked through all that. Chad, you and Aga worked through all that, and when you did, after you did, I’m telling you, you made her so happy.

I wish I could keep doing that. Make her happy. She made me happier than I could have ever dreamed. I think I, um, I’ve persuaded myself that Abby would want me to live my life without her. She wouldn’t want me to wallow when God knows I, I, uh, I did. I I do. But

for the kids’ sake, you know, I just have to be strong at least in front of them. You have been strong, Chad. You’ve been strong and you’ve helped keep your mother’s memory alive and you’re letting them experience joy, just daily joy. I gotta tell you, Charlotte was so excited talking about going skating with you and, and Stephanie.

It was, that was a good thing.

Chad, you deserve to have more good days. I don’t want to, I don’t wanna be presumptuous or overstepping or anything, but

you have a lot more to give. You do. You’re a good man. You’re a good person. You’re kind. And I, and I hope, I hope you find love again. And I think, I think Abi going through the same way.

We are gathered here today in the memory of my precious mother, Dr. Kayla Brady Johnson,

so that together we may acknowledge and share both our joy in the gift that her life was to us and the pain that are passing springs.

If I’d had the chance to say goodbye to her,

I would’ve told her that.

I didn’t expect you to get back home so soon. Yeah.

Joe and Trip are still at the hospital. They’re talking to somebody about, um, donating your mom’s,

your mom’s body is science. You know, she always wanted to be an organ donor, but now thanks to Kristen, we can’t even grant her her last wish.

I was, um, I was just writing her eulogy and most of what I type, I just end up deleting.

Well, I think, uh, the right words will come to you at the right time. Yeah. I just keep thinking about what I. Would’ve said if I’d been there, if I’d been at the hospital in time. Listen to me. You have to let go of that. Stephanie, your mother knew how much you loved her. I know, but I just, I wanted to say goodbye to her.

I sh I should have been there with her. No. Listen, baby. Please stop blaming yourself for that. It was not your fault. No. It was someone else’s. You want to give me a piece of your mind about Stephanie Johnson? I should have known that one. Look, I, I, I just want to let you know that I, she told me that you turned off her phone while you two were doing the, the whatever it is that you were doing, and so she lost her chance to give her final goodbye.

Say, Hadai Mama, I know. And Ms. Price, there is nothing you could say to me right now that Stephanie hasn’t already said. Oh. Oh, good. Good. You deserve every insult that she threw at you, cuz if she had no way to get you to the curb, I’ve got plenty of my own kicking to do that. And trust me, as much as you could possibly beat me up right now, I’m beating myself up more.

Okay. I know my brain was a bit scrambled at the time, but Ralph, I recall at your lab there was a ton of equipment. When you programmed me, there’s nothing down here, but cobwebs, wine and psychosis. That won’t be a problem. I stashed some of my equipment in the lab of tunnels, so set up may be a bit makeshift, but I will make it, uh, make it work.

I don’t want you to make it work. And what the hell? Why are you going along with this anyway? Because it’s what Stefano would want. You’re loving father and the boss of Dr. Rolf worshiped and adored. So the good doctor knows that the man that he was completely devoted to would never want his son just walking around.

Brainwash, get what you need. No foot raw.

I hate you. Not for long. And you know, once your real feelings from me, come back. You’re gonna thank me. I promise. I promise I won’t.

Uh, I can’t think about finding love again, Jack. Oh, and Abby still has my heart.

The showers will, you know,

I went to her grave site on Christmas Eve and I thought that she appeared to me. Just talk to me about how I should move on with my life. So you haven’t been thinking about the idea? No, I wouldn’t say that. You just did. When you said that Abi talk to you, I believe that was your subconscious trying to give you permission to move on.

Cuz deep in your heart, you know that that’s what Abigail wanted to. So you and Stephanie have been growing closer? No. No, Stephanie, me. No, there’s nothing going on between me and Stephanie. It’s not in the way that, you mean.

I mean, there might have been,

but I, I put a stop to it cuz I, I realized I wasn’t ready and I didn’t know if I ever would be Stephanie. Understood. You know, she, she loved Abby too. So, so Stephanie’s willing to wait No. Until you’re ready. She’s willing. No, I told her that wouldn’t be fair. I’m not gonna hold her back. No. So she moved on with, uh, with, um, Alex Carus.

Alex, it’s funny. Doesn’t seem like her type. Wow. You might not be after all they broke up. Well, maybe it is indeed the time for you to make your move.

I, I can’t believe I ever thought I loved that. Sure. I mean, Sarah Verman, anyone as self-consumed and narcissistic as Alex Kiki. Hey, I’m just so angry at him and I’m just as angry at myself forever trusting him. Baby, listen, I’m so sorry that happened to you, but I’m gonna say it again. Your mom knew how much you loved her, okay?

And at the end, she was at peace. She would want you to be at peace too

falling. It could be, if I had any idea why Chad was trying to reach share, my God, this price, I would’ve never turned her phone off. I just thought this guy was looking for another reason to interrupt us. Not that that’s any excuse, because it’s not. It’s not. And that’s not what I’m trying to do. What I did was wrong.

I did it for the wrong reason. And I admit that, and I can’t take that back now, obviously. And honestly, I don’t think there’s even a way I can fix this. I don’t know if Stephanie would even let me. And I don’t expect you to understand what it’s like to make a mistake. This’s terrible one that just causes so much damn hurt.

Oh, I know exactly what it’s like. Look, you know, I wish you would turn on Xander. I mean, how could I not? Since it would get both of us out of this pickle. But I get that you still love him, which makes it impossible for you to Well, you’d pretty much be ruining his life. Yeah, I would be. And like you said, I just can’t, it’s impossible.

Even if I know that it won’t work out for the two of us, why not? I know he still loves you too. He just loves Sarah more, but she wants nothing to do with him. And if we’re being totally honest here, based on what he told me while he was threatening my life, um, I think he might be giving up on Sarah.

Every time I give you another chance, you make me a regret it, and then you ask me for another one. I Right. Next time I promise. No, you won’t because I’m done.

Maybe nothing happened between you and Gwen, but you two have a connection that you and I don’t. What are you talking about? You woman? I love loved Gwen too.

And even after she helped

having kidnapped, and even though she fried my brain, you went out and did capers with her. I mean, I know. I shouldn’t be surprised because if you need help kidnapping someone who, who else would you turn to? But then, and you lied. Oh my God, you lied and you lied. I’m just so sorry, sir.

Sorry. Won. Cut it. Not this time.

Look, I know that you didn’t mean for anybody to get hurt, but

you kidnap people. Xander,

Susan is dead. Bonnie is traumatized for life.

So please don’t make me say this again. It’s the last time I’m gonna say it.

You are not the man that I fell in love with. And I don’t wanna be married to you anymore.

I remember our life together, Gabby. It wasn’t all flowers and hearts. It was far from it. It was at the end. It’s just before I lost you. That’s, that’s what makes this so devastating. Things are wonderful between us before and, and I know that you’ve had these feelings come back to you. I know that you have those feelings can’t stay buried forever.

Okay? If you really believe that, then why not just let the feelings resurface on their own? Huh? Why make me be a Guinea pig in another one of roll stupid experiments?

Oh, good God. Does this guy even know what he’s doing? There will be a bit of improvisation involved. And I have to warn you, there are always risks for anybody expanding the course of science. I’m sorry. Risks. Risks. Did you hear that? Huh? You let this lunatic poke around in my brain knowing that there are risks involved.

You just admitted it. Calm down. R Ralph. Risks. What kind of risk can we talk about here? Oh, so usual. Amnesia, aphasia, ag, agnosia, death. What? What? I sense some doubt. Hmm. Um, so it’s up to you. Mr. Hernandez. Do you still want me to go through with the procedure?

What exactly did Zander say about Sarah? He was a drunken mess. He probably won’t remember much himself, but in vodka veritas, technically it was scotch, but you get the idea. Anyway, once he was done almost throttling me to death, he told me he pretty much lost Sarah. Well, that doesn’t mean that he’s ready to give up on Ha Guinevere.

He, he’s sitting in his room drunk, vulnerable, half naked. If it were me, I would skedaddle on over there and let him know about the sacrifice you have made to save his fine, fine ass. And if you play cards right, you may have a piece of that ass before the night is over.

I have to hire a lawyer of my own. Look these over it’s boiler plate, Xander. It’s basically a form. There’s no assets to divide up. You don’t have anything of value. And unless you’re planning to ask for alimony from my meager salary, of course not. And quit stalling and just, and just sign the papers, please.

Oh God. I tried so hard not to let you down. Don’t do that. Don’t you dare try to put this on me. I wasn’t, none of this had to happen. None of it. I am a doctor for God’s sake. My mom was offering to give us money to tie us over until I was off probation and making my full salary. But you, you wouldn’t take her support because of your ego.

I never once made you feel inadequate. I never once asked for you to support me. You could work at Buddy’s Burger Barn for all I care. All I ever wanted was to be with the man that I love. And who is that? The man I thought you were. Well, don’t give me that. She knew exactly who I was when you married me.

I mean, sure. Yeah. Every now and then I’d try and turn over a new leaf, but it never worked, did it? I always failed. As you keep reminding me and you, you admitted part of what drew you to me in the first place was that was a bad boy, that you were drawn to the side of me. That breaks the rules. That is the man you fell in love with.

You know? It’s true. Can you find Yes.

When I was around your age, I gave up my baby girl, Milani. I sent her to my sister to raise her own. I did it to protect her. I thought it was the only choice I had at the time, and when it was done, oh, I realized that I had changed the lives of everyone I loved. I couldn’t undo it. My daughter and I, we had lost so much time together.

I’m sorry.

Lonnie was a grown woman by the time the truth came out and when it did it, it was ever a bit as ugly and traumatic as you’d imagine. But in the end, much to my amazement and with profound gratitude, I, my precious daughter, she was able to forgive me. Wow, that’s really good to hear. It makes me happy.

actually gives me a little bit of hope. Maybe one day Stephanie will amaze me too.

I know you’re probably not hungry, but Mom would be so mad if she knew you weren’t taking care of yourself. You see, I’m just like her. Isn’t that why you call me a little sweetness? Yeah. As much as I know you hate it, . Yeah. Well my feelings about that have changed.

I wanna be like her now. Just like her. I wanna help people like she did. I wanna, I wanna lift people’s spirits like she did. You do baby girl. Just by being, you sure do lift my spirits and I am so proud of you.

I can’t make a move right now. That wouldn’t be fair to Stephanie or anyone else. I, I’m, nah, I can’t get involved in a relationship. You miss out, Miguel. Of course you do. You always will.


There’s never gonna be a right time.

There’s never gonna be the, the time when you say, I am ready to take that next step. And maybe I’m, I’m overstepping here, but

you have to take it. And it doesn’t mean the memories of Abigail are gonna be any less, any less important. It doesn’t mean that you’re gonna love her any less. It just means that you’re gonna find room in your heart. It’s gonna grow. So there’s space for you to live the full life that you deserve,

that Abigail would want you to have.

God Rolfe, you didn’t tell me that deprogramming could kill him. You didn’t ask. That’s a risk of him suffering. A severe side effect is approximately 0.12%. Negligible ne, my life is not negligible, Rolf, and I am not willing to risk. Okay, well you just went out in the tunnels and you found a bunch of tubes and wires and put ’em together on your little train and wheeled it back in here to poke around in my brain.

Not I elbow, not I ear. Not my little pinky in my brain. And face it. You don’t know what the hell you’re doing. , are you questioning my genius? I’m questioning your sanity, which is why I’m not letting you lay a finger on me, Gabby. Come on. I like the odds. Just do it wrong. You psychotic. Selfish bitch. How somebody in?

We’re gonna need to. Alright, we are ready to begin.

Alex, I see you’re suffering. Mm-hmm. I sure know what that feels like too. But I don’t have a crystal ball, honey. It’s not for me to say if Stephanie might ever forgive you. Right. I guess that would be a rhetorical question. And really the whole thing is just moot right now because I can’t even get her to talk to me.

I call her, I leave her messages. She doesn’t respond. Messages, huh? I guess you mean her. Texting and tweeting and tics and talks, and however the hell less that You young people now talk to each other. Yeah. You know, here’s what I think, and not that you ask now, I think you, you, the younger generation, y’all need to stop hiding behind a screen if you think that’s the way to get through through each other, because it’s not, you need to, you need to be with the person in the flesh so they can you see your face, look in your eyes.

Maybe even take them into your arms if you have something important to say. Especially if it’s an apology. Yeah.

Tell your father, you know, I said bye. Have him gimme a call. I will. Hey, thank you Ms. Press.

I’ll put it back in the fridge. Maybe we’ll have a little appetite later on. Yeah, I’ll, uh, I’ll take the container back to Roman. Okay. Well, before you do at least have a few bites of the pie on Maid. What dessert before dinner. Mm-hmm. , your mother would not approve. Woo. She says you When mom was in med school and it was just the two of us, we used to eat pie for dinner every Friday night.

You’re kidding me. I’m totally serious. And she was the first one to put a piece on her plate and ladle on the whipped cream. God, I wish I could have seen that.

You know, your mom didn’t talk too much to me about that time. But I’m pretty sure the two of you got along just fine. Without me. It wasn’t fine, but we managed because you had each other. Because we had each other.

And now without her, I just, I don’t know, dad, I just, I don’t know.

Yeah. Okay. I’ll just turn up at Zander’s door with a smile and all my worldly goods. Mm. It might be a bit much. Tell you what, you’ve been working out the paper. You got some bucks to rub together. Why don’t I go over to the Salem End book us a room. Better yet a suite? No. Sweet. I can afford a room. A small one.

Two queen size beds. Twin. Twin beds, fine. Cheap scape. Okay, while I take care of our lodgings, you go over to Xander’s motel room and you claim your prize. Bit of a crass way to put it, don’t you think? Crass smash. He is a major prize and you are gonna win now go get him, girl.

I meant there’s an element of danger being with you that part of me liked.

I said I liked it with reservations. I thought that I could soften your rough edges, but instead the other way around happened. We changed each other, Sarah. That’s how love’s supposed to work, isn’t it? Yeah, but not when one person keeps lying to the other and commits crimes and betrays your trust. That is not how love works.

Here we go again. I mean, you lecture me on how I’m not good enough for you. Then you leave, but then you come back. Sarah,

I’m not coming back this time,

so you might as well.


dears. Stephanie, I know you have no reason to forgive me. But

Dad, we are going to get through this. Mom would never forgive us if we didn’t. You’re right about that.

And Dad, I’m sorry. I’ve been so wrapped up in my personal problems that I haven’t appreciated how lucky I’ve been. Not just in having mom for as long as I did, but finding that pie and the note from her. It was like, it was like she got to say goodbye to me even if I didn’t have the chance to say it to her.

That’s a beautiful way to look at it.

We are going to be okay. Because we have each other.

Yes, we do.

Hey, yeah. I, I think, I think maybe you should at least go and talk to Stephanie. I don’t know. I, I, um, she, she just lost her, her mother. I can’t just show up at her door and bear my shoulder. I disagree. I disagree. I think, I think maybe this is the exact time that she needs to hear from people who care about her shrink.

Oh. Years of therapy will do that to you.

I’ve just said so much loss lately. Abigail, Arlene, Kate, Kayla, I, I just think maybe we’re, we’re forgotten. That we’ve, we’ve gotta live as well as grieve, which is just, I guess, a common way of saying that Maybe, maybe if there is a, a connection between the two of you, between you and Stephanie, and maybe you, you should, you should explore it.

I know, I know Abigail loves Stephanie, and I know, I just think that she, she wouldn’t be all right with, with you finding out, seeing if you could get close to her. Who knows?

I think that’s what you want. And listen, whatever you decide,

it’s your choice. I will support you.

It’s time for you to remember when you first realized you were in love with Gabriela Hernandez, when you were locked up together in the Secret Room. I should have admitted it before now, but my pride, my ego wouldn’t let me do it. I am done with all that now. If we never get outta here, I’m not leaving anything unfinished.

That’s why I’m laying it all out on the line. I care for you. Get me Hernandez, and I’m done pretending. I don’t

it’s worth

what’s going on. The equipment. He’s a bit older than his.

Hi. Ah, watch where you’re going. Oh, I see Zander finally signing the papers. It’s none of your damn business.

You go Gwenny.

I, Steve, I’m so sorry my Kayla. I’m so sorry.

Ready or not. Steph, you’re right. Come. Are you, can you.

Oh, oh no. Oh my God. No. Please don’t believe us. I’m so dying.

I didn’t get to tell her how much in loved. I don’t wanna die. I’m not here.

Yes, skip. Of course. I want you to hold the front page, this new expose on the sale and police department’s gonna send our online subscription. Soaring. Yes, I’m talking rampant corruption, gross incompetence, and personal benefits.

Skip. I’m gonna have to call you back. Yeah, right. Bye Dad. , I didn’t know you were coming in. It’s um, that’s really lovely to see you. Hi. I don’t suppose that you’ll feel that way when you find out why I’m here. Okay. I spoke to ra. I know what you did.

Oh, come on Nate. Well, you’re gluten for punishment. We all know you’re never gonna be good enough for Meg Ryan, so all you do is all a favor and just stop trying. We’ve never watched a romcom before.

Who is it?

This very bloody important.

Going somewhere I can explain. Uh, please do, because I’m having trouble falling along. You send me off to take a shower so we can consummate our marriage and when I come out, I find you sneaking outta my suite like a cat burglar. What’s going on here, Gabby?


Like Sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

I must say Bonnie is a very understanding person. that she is Sarah, honey. Justin was just telling me that Bonnie convinced you to give Xandra another chance. Mm-hmm. , she did. Unfortunately, it didn’t stick. What? Yeah. I’m sorry to get your hopes up, mom, but stating my marriage to Xander is not in the cards.

Oh, no. What changed your mind? Oh man, I don’t know. I was probably finding my husband half naked with Gwen Rizk.

Can’t believe the police commissioner had to call you in Boston to disparage your daughter. Is it true? Did you help Sandra cover up some kidnapping spree? Is just trying to create cover for himself. I mean, is there any wonder why the Salem Police Department’s reputation is in the bloody toilet? If you ask me, Hey, I think he’s doing his both a favor, how do you figure he thought maybe your father could speak to you, took some sense into you, if that’s still possible.

What did the Fair Commissioner have to tell you then? Enough for me to know that you could be in serious trouble for not cooperating with the police? Is that what you told you, Gwen? What are you thinking? Sandra kidnapped two women when who ended up dead. Why are you trying to help him cover up his crimes?

Is that any way to treat the guy who saved your magnificent? Or have you forgotten how I dawned on that muscle bound clown suit? Oh, I thank you, Mr. Cook. I’d love to come in for a visit. Looks like I interrupted quite the party. What do you want? Well, for starters, I’d like for you to acknowledge what I did for you.

I guess you, you do, I do. Can owe you one, uh, more than one. Yeah. Yeah. Don’t rub it in. Yeah. Start with a drink. Have we given up on glasses? It’s come to that. Just trying to cut out the middle man. How? How the mighty have fallen to think that gorgeous temple of yours used to luxuriate on Egyptian cotton at Curios Mansion.

Sheets are overrated. So is my family. What are you doing? I wanted to give you a heads up concerning, I’m kind of, sort of testifying against you to a grand jury.

Well, isn’t it obvious why I’m leaving? Uh, no, it isn’t. Well, I’ve changed my mind in case you weren’t aware. It’s a woman’s prerogative to do so. You changed your mind about being with. That’s right. I don’t believe you. You don’t believe that I’ve changed my mind. I don’t believe that you had any intention of getting back together with me, let alone making love to me today.

That’s why’d you really come here. I don’t have to explain anything to you. Not after everything you did to me and Stephan, why the hell are you here, Gabby? I thought for a second that. Then I could forgive you, but after I was in this room waiting for you to get outta the shower, I realized how wrong I was.

I, I never could have been able to get past what you did to the only man I’ve ever loved. Goodbye. Hey, hey. You’re not walking outta here until you tell me what you’re up to. Let go with me. Pick none. Whatcha you doing? I’m get out. Go. Hey,

this why you came to my room.

This is a collect call from Statesville Prison. Do you accept?

Please help me understand why on earth would you cover for crimes?

Van was desperate. He is always desperate. Look, he was in terrible debt and he didn’t have enough money for a place to stay, so he took a job with Ava Vitali just to get back on his. And by job you mean kidnapping Susan Banks and ransoming her to EJ Damira. It was meant to be a simple transactions. Zer never meant for Susan to get hurt.

I’m sure that’s a comfort to ej who lost his mother and Johnny who lost his grandmother. Zander lets Susan go. Well that’s really swell of him, isn’t it? Tell me about Bonnie. She’s in his family. Oh God, dad, come on. It’s not like Bonnie’s some sort of a saint or she to your sister, and that’s supposed to make it what Sandra did.

Okay. I didn’t say that then. What are you saying after everything he’s done, Gwen, why are you still defending?

Is this some kind of junk? I’m afraid not. Butter. My lawyer thinks, telling the police what I know is my only chance of staying outta prison. You told a lawyer what I did. Well, yes, but it’s nothing to worry about. I, it’s privileged or whatever. Nothing to worry about. He says, after his barrister advises him to throw me under the bus and back repeatedly over the body, she thinks she can get me a generous plea deal.

Oh, bully for you. Well, look, I didn’t wanna testify against you, at least not at first, especially since I couldn’t do it anonymously. So you were hoping that you could ruin my life with without anyone discovering your planet. Yes. I’m trying to go a jet. Hey, this is because of my cousin Sonny, isn’t it? You were worried how he’d react if he learned that you helped me kidnap his stepmom.

He believed I’d changed. Huh? Why did you decide to wrap me up? Will Horton. If that messy little queen overheard me talking to my lawyer and told Sonny everything, so now it’s every man for himself.

This is what you were after, isn’t it? I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’ve never seen that phone before. It’s my burner. Why would you need a burner phone? You know what? Don’t even answer that. It’s probably to make all your untraceable shading deals. I use it only to communicate with Dr. But I suspect you already knew that.

Oh, and looks like someone made an outgoing call to him while I was in the shower. Still wanna pretend like you’ve never seen this before?

I’m sorry, sir. I’m having trouble hearing you. You have a collect call from Statesville Prison. Will you accept? Hello? Yes, yes. Hello? Hello. Accept. I’ll accept. Hello. Who is this? Hello, son. It’s your mother.

Mother, you have no idea how happy I am to hear your voice . Is that so? Yes. My ex-wife, Gabby, she totally snapped. She locks me up in the secret room, in the Demer mansion. You need to send help. You have to. I don’t have to do anything. And why should I lift a finger to such an ungrateful son?

Admit a cab. You send me into the shower so you could snoop around and then you called Rolf on this phone. What if I did, you know? For a second. I actually started to believe you, but I should have known, you’ll never give up this obsession you have with Stephan. Never. Not until he’s back to himself. Not until I undo every single thing that you have done to him.

I talk to Ralph. Not only has he agreed to get Stephan back to how he was, but he’s on the way to Salem as we speak.

I can’t believe that Zander would take up with that awful Gwen again. Especially after what she put you through. I should have seen it coming. I just, I didn’t think it was gonna happen this soon. Are you sure that you didn’t misunderstand the situation? I look, Xander insisted that he could explain why they were in a state of undress.

But does it really matter? Of course it does. He’s just gonna be more excuses mom. And maybe he’s telling you the truth this time. Maybe he is telling me the. This time

seeing him like that with that woman, it, it just proved to me that I’m never going to be able to trust him again. You don’t think, you don’t think you’re being a little rash, rash, mom. I have given him so many chances. I know what I’m doing. Of course you do. But if even Bonnie was willing to give Xander another chance.

Surely you can too.

Dad, Sando was about to lose everything. His relationship with Justin, his freedom, his marriage to Sarah. So you created a fake company where he could pretend to work to cover his tracks.

Yes, that was dodgy. Yes, but Zander had told me that he was done working for Ava. He just wanted to prove to his family that he wasn’t a complete screw up. He certainly failed in that attempt, didn’t he? I know you’re disappointed in me, sweetheart. We have graduated from disappointed to disgusted about three schemes ago.

This is different how? Because I had nothing to do with Bonnie or Susan’s kidnapper. You are an accessory after the fact. I was helping a friend. No. Helping a friend is giving them a truck to move, not enabling them to cover multiple felonies. Okay? So it wasn’t the best judgment, it was the worst judgment.

And this happened over and over again. But you have a chance to salvage all of this. To make it right for me and all the people you’ve heard,

wow. Go to the police and tell them everything, you know, I can’t. I can’t do that to Zander. If I turn him in, I would lose him. Would you rather lose me?

Little Horton knows what I did. What the hell are you thinking? How was I supposed to know that little sneak was eavesdropping? What if he writes one of his exposes about me? Worse shit turns my tragic downfall into his next flick. For peacock, I could think of worse faces. I could see a Hemsworth doing you justice, which.

Not Chris. What are we even talking about? I don’t know. Hot Aussies, she was just trying to distract me from the situation at hand. Uh, relaxed cookie. You don’t have to worry about Wilhelmina. She wasn’t snooping in my life for a story then what was Will snooping about for? She wanted to get me out of Sunny’s life and you know what?

It worked. He wants nothing more to do with me. It’s because your shabby little love triangle blew up in your face. You’re gonna sell me out. Well, it’s nothing personal, big guy. I just have to look out for my own interests.

What if I offered you another incentive? What incentive?

I dunno. By opens negotiation. What are you proposing?

You’re making a mistake, Gabby. The only mistake I ever made was trusting a man like you and I’m out of here. You think you can keep me here against my will? I would never do something like that. Gabby. Smart man. And my brother’s just itching for a solid reason to lock your ass up. I don’t need to keep you here by force because I don’t think you really wanna leave.

Really? No, I really do wanna leave. But see, there’s a little part of you that must know you’re wasting your time with Stephan Damir. Part of you that knows how much better it is to be with a man who actually wants you, who understands what we can be together, you think it’s a waste of time to want my husband back.

Back to the way he was before you and your mad scientists were playing in his. It’s a waste because Stephan doesn’t want to love you. He keeps telling you over and over that you make him sick. He has no interest in being Deprogrammed who says I’m giving him a choice.

Mother, this is not the time for your macab sense of humor. Please do. I sound like I’m joking. I, I tell you that your son has been abducted by a crazy person and you’re not even the least bit concerned. Where was your concern for your grieving mother when you rose from the dead? How many months now? And you haven’t visited me even once.

Mother, I died. You’re right. I am sorry. It’s just that I’ve been busy. Yes. And yet you send your attorneys to have me sign your late brother Jake’s Tamira Enterprise’s proxy. Over to you. Plenty of time for that. Am I right?

Dad, what are you saying? Are you saying that you can’t forgive me for helping Zander?

I’ve lost track of all the things that I have given you for four, almost assuring I’m marriage to. Tormenting Abigail, the whole Sarah debacle.

I truly, truly am sorry for all of that. So you always say over and over and over again, I have accepted that I’ve believed in because I have wanted to believe so deeply in. I have risked my whole relationship with my family, my wife, my other kids. Because of you, you know how grateful I have to have you in my life.

If you are truly grateful for my love and support, you will stop doing the things that you’re doing. Do you have any idea the position that you have put me in by helping Xander? How are you involved? You are living in my wife’s family home. You are working at my newspaper. You have weaponized a spectator launching an attack on the Salem pd.

I swear I never meant for any of this to blow back at you, and yet it has, and this is what I don’t understand. Tommy, how can you go to such desperate lengths for a guy who’s in love with another? Because he’s still my friend, whether he loves Sarah or not. And actually he’s your friend too. Did you forget that?

No. No. I have not forgotten. He is my friend too, but I will not throw my life away for him.

When you gimme no choice,

what does that mean? That means.

I am ordering you to go down to the Salem PD right now, and you swear out a statement against Sandra or else

Mom. I know that you mean well, but my mind is made up. It’s over between Sandra. , once the trust is gone, there’s just, there’s nothing left. I’m very sorry to hear that. I know that you care about Tanner and I know that you were, you were rooting for us, but we were never gonna make it work. We’re just, we’re too incompatible.

Namely, I have a moral compass and he does not well from what I have witnessed, you made my cousin want to be a better. It’s like Maggie, as for Victor. Yeah. And Victor has done some truly terrible things in his lifetime, but even he has lines he won’t cross. I can’t say the same for Xander. I’m sorry. What is happening?

I go shy now. You know you want it. It, I can remember a timer getting means bed was at the very top of your. That was a long time ago. You don’t find me attractive anymore.

I do. You’re definitely still attractive. You told me that you have nothing to lose by testifying against me, so why don’t you let me show you what you have to gain by keeping that pretty little man shut.

Okay, mother, you are right. Okay. I have failed you miserably as a son. I’ve just been so distracted by everything I. I didn’t take the time out to think about the one person who loves me most in this world. And I am sorry, but look, I promise you, I promise if you get me outta here, I will do everything in my power to get you out of that hell of a prison you’re in and back here at home with me.

Where you belong, please, mother. Are you still there? Oh, I’m here. I’m just thinking about. About how you’d saved just about anything right now to get my help. Okay? Yes. I am desperate. I am, please. I am telling you the truth. Just please get me out of here. Mother, I’ll take it under consideration.

You aren’t giving stuff on a choice about the deprogramming. What do you mean by that? Uh, nothing. It’s just a figure of speech. A figure of speech. Yes. I was just trying to say that I’m never gonna give up on him. That’s not what it sounded like, Lee. I’m not like you and Kristen and ej. I would never take away Stefan’s free will, but you would hound and harass the guy despite him telling you over and over again that he’s not interested.

I’m never gonna try to stop convincing Stefan to fight for the life that we had together, and Dr. Rolf is gonna help me accomplish.

I’m be so sure about that. Gabby,

you are ordering me to go to the police. I mean, what are you gonna send me to my bedroom if I don’t comply? Take me in for a time. You can’t force me to do anything.

No, I can’t.

You know, sometimes I wonder if I could have been a father to you when you were a little girl. Perhaps I could have taught you the difference between right and wrong. Yeah. But you weren’t

all right. I wasn’t. And I will always regret that because it’s obvious that you don’t know the difference.

So here we are.

Here we are.

Like you say, Gwen, you’re a grown woman capable of making your own decisions, so the choice is yours.

Either you go to the police and tell them everything you know about Sandra to help in his prosecution, or oh,


You are outta my life this time for good.

You would really have sex with me to stop me from testifying against you. Well, it’s not like we didn’t almost do it before, huh? Yeah. But that time you tricked me and hooked up with Sarah Horton instead, and Sarah’s gone. It’s just you and me.

We’re doing this now. Okay? Is this real? Oh, it’s very real. And this time I don’t have any tricks on my sleeve. I thought you happened. These, please. Yeah, I know that, son. Do you have a deal?

Yeah, definitely. We have a deal. Take me. Take me now.

I like it. Rough but safe for. Safe word.

You nasty. Little bomb feeder. What made you think you wal in here and threatened me with no repercussions? How is it threatening? Oh, no, she was just casually informing me. Then you intend to testify against me in court if you’ve forgotten who I am. This a storm from snapping your neck. Right. Maybe not wanting to add murder charges to your list of offenses, baby, I don’t care.

Already lost Sarah. Most people would say that she was my conscience. Don’t only thing keeping me from turning into the worst version of myself. Is this the worst version of you? Like you said, what have I gotta lose?

You, you keep away. Make no mistakes, doc. If you tell the cops, then you help me and we’ll make sure that you join Susan Banks in the afterlife. You understand perfectly.

Justin, you said yourself, Sarah makes Xander a better. , well, not good enough to keep him from kidnapping his wife. I went along with Bonnie’s decision to give Xander a second chance, but I don’t think I’ll ever be able to overlook what Xander did to Bonnie and Susan. I he, he’s not a bad person. No, but he does bad things at a certain point.

You just have to accept that that’s who he. I am really glad to hear you say that Maybe you could drop the divorce papers so soon. Mom, are you not listening to me? I am ready to move on from this marriage.

Justin, I can get the paperwork started right. Thank you. Uh, should be pretty straightforward. No kids. Not much in the way of marital assets. How soon do you want them? As soon as possible.

You would, you would cut me out of your life. If, if I don’t flip on. I couldn’t understand why you’d be skeptical after all the times that I have threatened to disown you only to to, to bring you right back into my life and into my heart for your dead time. I have to be No, no, you don’t, dad. No. We, we can, we can fix this.

I mean, h how is this different from an hit any other time? Losing Abigail has changed everything for me. Everything, my relationship to life, to family, to the preciousness of time. I wanna spend the time I have. Making Jennifer as happy as I can, honoring the legacy of my daughter, spending time with JJ and the grandkids.

I don’t want to lose you,

but I can’t keep dealing with the negativity and the drama that you bring.

I can’t. It’s too, it’s everything’s unsafe. So do the right thing. Go to Rafe, tell him everything you know, Alexander, or you will lose not only the roof of your head and your job at the Spectator, but me as a father, the choice is your.

What’s gonna be

No mother, please. There’s no time for you to think this over. You gotta get me out of this room. Okay. Before Gabby gets back, there’s no telling what she might do. Mother, please. I’m begging you. Just gimme mother. What did you just say mother? What the hell? Oh. Hi. Hi, Viv. Yes. This is your once and future daughter-in-law, Gabby Hernandez.

He said what? Always so dramatic. Yeah, no. I know that you’re upset that Stefan hasn’t come visit you, but you, he’s had plenty of time to take Chloe to, uh, New York for Christmas and Miami for New Year’s. Mother, can you hear me? Yes, exactly. Chloe Lane. No, I need to talk to, I know it’s really awful what she did to your beloved Philip.

It’s crazy because the Stephan that we both know and love would never treat us this way. She never liked you mother. You never liked her. You know, I’m just thinking that when Rolf brainwashed step to hate me and love Chloe, maybe he did something to make him stop caring for you too. It’s a lie. Mother.

You can’t believe her. No, no, no, no. Sleep. Okay. Sorry about that. Yeah. Oh, no, that was, um, no, that was nothing. Listen, you and I, we are on the same page. We want Stephan to be 100% in his right mind and no longer under Dara’s mind control. Yes. Once he’s deprogrammed, I, I will see to it myself that he visits you at least once a week.

Okay. Nice talking to you. What? Okay. Bye. In.

Nice try, but funny story. Mommy. Weirdest is team stabby. Ha, I’m telling you. Oh, that’s right, stabby live with it. Ha.

It’s leash shin. I have an assignment for you. I need you to make sure Dr. Wilhelm Rolf stays away from Salem permanently.

Thank you. I hope you’re not upset with me for agreeing to represent Sarah in this divorce. No, of course not. It’s what Sarah wants, but it’s not what you want. Oh, Justin, I learned a long time ago. You can give advice and you can be there for your tournament. In the end, you just have to. You have to step back and support their decisions.

Sarah is probably at the motel as we speak, breaking the news to Zander.

He loves her so much. You know, he’s not gonna take this well.

I swear to God, if that’s you, I am ready to commit murder. I am ready to. Sarah, I wasn’t expecting you. Uh, can I commit? Yeah, course. I just, I put some quotes. You don’t have to. I’ve seen it fall anyway. I won’t belong.

What’s this? Divorce papers. Our marriage is over. Zander.

Go here.

I thought you’d like to know. I’ve decided not to testify against Sander. Turns out telling the truth may be hazardous to my health. Hello? Well, that makes two of us. You decided not to turn on Zander today. I thought you’d already made up your mind not to cooperate with the police. Yeah, I did until my father turned up and gave me an ultimatum.

What kind? Ofum? The kind where I either testify against Sandra or he will disown me. Oh my God. And you chose Xander.

Looks like I’m on my own again. Jack made good on his threat. He kicked me out the house fired me from the spectator. He said I no longer have a father.

You trying to, if you scream, it goes back on

you’re insane. You know that. I’m determined there’s a difference. How many times do I need to tell you no matter what you do, I will not fall in love with you again. We’ll see about that. Oh, looks like we have a visitor.

All right. Now who’s down for a little deprogramming.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


you think it’s a goodidea to attend this memorial with the attacker still out there? Thanks for the concern, but I — I —

[ Doorbell rings ] I’ll get that.

[ Exhales deeply ] Aunt stella! When did you get back in town?! Hugs first. Answers second.

[ Laughs ] Ohh! I was just making sure that you got the final guest list and the dinner orders? Oh, great. Great. Can you send it to the venue? Okay. Thank you so much. And I will talk to you soon.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Bye. You’re in the homestretch. Your wedding day will be here before you know it.

[ Sighs ] If I can get everything done on time. So? Anything off? Oh, it was, uh — thank you. It was a delivery next door, and the driver lingered a bit. You know? Come on, darling. You’ve been at this since 2:00 A.M. We didn’t get here by lowering our guard. Too early for a little kick? Oh. Uh, no. It’s 5:00 P.M. In paris. Being a fugitive really messes with your sense of time. Oh, you won’t be fugitives for long. We will nail victor cassadine. Eventually. In the meantime, the world goes on without us. Just think — by this afternoon, our daughter will be here. I’ll get to see her beautiful face. Beautiful just like her mother. Our family is expanding today. I just — I just know that this stem-cell transplant is going to work. Michael… e-everything is working out. Our own child’s stem cells can save you, and I cannot be more grateful. I couldn’t face life without you. I’m not going anywhere. Not when I’m finally evening the playing field in our house. Two males. Two females.

[ Both laugh ]

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh.

[ Muttering ] Oh, melanie is here to pick up wiley. I just got to find the nurse that took him to get apple juice. I cannot wait to tell him that his baby sister is being born today.

[ Door closes ] Won’t be long now. You have to be strong, sweetie. Mommy’s praying for your health first…and then hers. Of course, I want it to all work out, but if it doesn’T… …I’m thankful for the chance to see your face.

[ Knock on door ] Carly! What is it? D-did willow have a setback? No. No. It’s just the opposite. Willow — I think she’s gonna be okay. Really? Really! That’s incredible. It’s incredible! Incredible! We probably shouldn’t have done that. Ah. No. No. I know, I know. Seems, um, risky. I don’t think anyone saw us.

Cousin wanda sends her love to all. Ohh! I cut my trip short so I can come back and help with the prep. Come here! Aunt stella, you didn’t have to do that. Oh, please. It was just a few days. And I-I wanted to help. Well, I hope your cousin wasn’t too disappointed. Stella: Oh, look, I love london, and I really love spending time with wanda, but she understood how important this is. And on the subject of weddings, where’s portia? Oh, she’s at work right now. Look at you. Ohh! Just as pretty as can be! How are you doing? I’m sorry to hear about your friend rory. It’s tragic. What is the world coming to? I don’t know, stella. It was thoughtful of you to send the card. I really appreciate it. And what about that awful esme prince?

[ Scoffs ] I heard she showed up. Yeah, she’s been remanded to spring ridge until her trial. Good. I hope she stays there. On a permanent basis. That way, justice can be served and trina can finally move on.

[ Chuckles ] But until then… we have a wedding to lift our spirits! And I have a surprise for the bride-to-be. Jordan. You’re here for britt westbourne’s memorial? I am. Tj’s attending, and I wanted to be there for him.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh. You’re wedding planner again? It’s the boutique, checking on my appointment to pick up my wedding dress. That’s so exciting! You’re gonna be beautiful.

[ Device beeping ] Oh. Ahh. That’s me. I have a meeting. I’ll see you at the memorial, commissioner ashford.

[ Softly ] Good luck with the dress. Sasha: I have to admit — manicures before the memorial seemed a little out there when you made the suggestion, but I’m starting to see the wisdom. On days like today, when the sadness is overwhelming but I still have to go out and face the world, I found that feeling like I look my best gives me this strange sort of strength to get through it. Really? I can barely muster the energy to comb my hair. Oh, yeah. I totally fall apart afterwards, when I’m alone. But then I have to figure out dinner or read a bedtime story. Right. It’s different with kids. I will always remember the kindness that britt showed me and brando when we lost liam. I’m so sorry for your loss, maxie. Thank you. I’m sorry for yours, too. I would totally grab your hands right now, but don’t want to mess up my nails. I still can’t believe that I’m saying goodbye to britt today. I get that. I feel like all I do is say goodbye to people. Any signs of life from lucy or martin? I left coffee and muffins outside their room. I imagine they’re pretty tired.

[ Chuckles ] Or they died with smiles on their faces. I hope that they continue to cooperate because we’re all gonna have to lay low. Despite everything we know and despite everything we’ve been through, we still don’t have enough concrete evidence to nail victor. We need irrefutable proof. You know, and I, for one, am feeling like I’ve lost my patience, honestly. We need to refocus and regroup, because taking down victor and getting justice for luke is the most important thing, right? Yeah, of course. I think, uh, not being home for the holidays has kind of affected me more than I realize. I haven’t seen robin or emma or noah for I don’t know how long. Hey. You got messages to them. They know you’re safe. You and charlotte were just reunited after she was away in europe for so long. And now

you’re on the run. Leaving her again must be really hard on you. It’s not as hard as her thinking that I’m dead. What are you doing here? I was just about to tell him to… dr. Randolph says there may be another way to treat my leukemia. I’m about to have a c-section. Our baby’s being born today. Is that safe? She’ll be premature. But she’s developed enough to withstand it. And, uh, yeah, once the baby’s born, the doctors will take the stem cells from the umbilical cord and the placenta to treat willow’s leukemia. That is, after more rounds of chemo. It’s the answer we’ve been waiting for. Well, I’m gonna pray for both of you. I mean, I’m gonna pray for all three of you. And I can’t wait to see… my granddaughter. I’m sure nina’s gonna be overwhelmed, you know? Unless, uh, we’re not welcome to see our grandchild? I hope you know that this drives me crazy. I can’t wait to show you how I feel about you out in public. I know. I know. This will be over soon. But right now we have to practice restraint. Right? Hmm. Easier said than done. Come on.

[ Chuckles ] My… aren’t you two cozy?

Nina! I didn’t know you were here. I just arrived to see my daughter because I lost so much time with her. Ohh. I just got here myself. We must have just missed each other in the elevator. Yes. I’d imagine you were in a rush to see carly. And michael and willow. You know, the family needs support right now. You know, I have to say, drew, I’m really surprised on how quickly you forgave carly after she lied to you. But I should expect it because no matter how much damage carly does, people still flock to her side. You really want to compare damage, nina? Or the people who forgive you no matter what? Charlotte isn’t going to grieve you. Alright? Laura will explain everything to her. She will understand. Charlotte’s a very smart cookie. I know. She’s remarkable. She’ll read between the lines. She knew I was planning her escape from boarding school without having to be told. And if victor thinks that we’re dead underground in paris, then we need to capitalize on that. So if I have to stay away from charlotte to keep her safe, then I’ll manage. I’ll be back shortly. I have a quick errand to run. No. Where are you going? To the pharmacy. My allergies are acting up. Uh-huh… hm.

[ Door closes ] I don’t believe her. Do you believe her? She doesn’t have allergies. Was felicia giving us a little alone time? I don’t know. Because if she was… thank you, felicia. Days like these are really hard. I know they bring to mind nathan for me… and probably brando and liam for you. I think about them every day. And then we lost lucy. Now there’s britt. Wait. We don’t know that lucy is gone yet. I’m keeping hope alive. It’s been so long, and she still hasn’t turned up. She hasn’t turned up dead yet, either. We have to stay positive. That’s the lucy coe way, right? I mean, what if — what if we had a defeatist attitude when the deception stock was tanking? We turned things around by remaining positive. True. It’s a good thing that we did not give up. Right. We kept the faith. Because our company is resilient.

We are resilient. And, damn it, lucy coe is resilient, too. Aunt stella, what are you up to? Nothing! I just want to take trina and portia to lunch. Oh, well, mom’s picking up her dress from the bridal boutique today.

[ Gasps ] Even better! We could have lunch and all go to the boutique together! I’m sorry. I can’t go. Dr. Westbourne’s memorial service is this afternoon. Oh, dear. I didn’t realize. Such a tragedy. I’m sorry if I’m ruining your plans. No, no, baby. It’s okay. It’s okay. I understand. I hadn’t planned on going, but a friend needs me. I can’t argue with that. You’re a good friend, trina. Okay. I should probably get going to G.H. Oh, wait a minute! I can take you! And then I’ll pick up portia while I’m there. Oh, really?! That would be great! Thank you. Oh, wait. I forgot that my phone is still charging upstairs. Okay. Go ahead. Okay. Well, how are you doing, marshall? Terrific. How are you? I’m so looking forward to this wedding. I got my officiant’s license and speech all prepared. How’s the music coming for the reception? What’s going on? Uh, it’s a work in progress. Okay. “A work in progress.” What’s the hold-up, marshall? Well, you know, aunt stella, these things take time. H-have you talked to tj? Does he know you’re in town? Oh, I just talked to him last week. He was on his way into surgery, and he was so excited about it!

[ Laughs ] How’s trina holding up? She’s doing as well as she can be. Having a wedding to concentrate on must be a welcome distraction. I suppose. Well, it was so nice catching up with you. If you’ll excuse me. Actually… I need to speak with you about a sensitive subject. Okay. I had an intense conversation with taggert earlier. About what? You and curtis. And trina.

Carly, you know what? You can pretend that I don’t exist, but I’m telling you this — I promise you this. I’m not going anywhere! Sonny: Is there a problem? Really? No, no. There’s no problem. We’re leaving. We are leaving.

[ Sighs ] You okay? I hate your ex. You want some good news? Hmm. There may be a way to save willow’s life.

[ Exhales sharply ] Hey, hey. Do you think nina caught on to what’s going on between us? At least deception stock is thriving now, so when lucy comes back, we’ll be solvent. Because we were able to think on our feet. Surprisingly, we have gladys to thank, as well. If she hadn’t signed off on the plan, the stock would still be tanking. Can I ask — is it — is it weird for you that gladys gets to make all of your financial decisions? Heh. I think her heart is in the right place. But it has definitely taken some getting used to. Gladys can be persistent about what she wants. Like what? Oh, you don’t — you don’t have to tell me. It’s okay to say that I need to mind my own business. No, it’s — it’s okay. Um, I think, of all people, you would understand. Gladys wants to sell brando’s garage. Oh. We’ve already turned down one offer. But she got another one recently, and she’s been hounding me about it. She really wants my blessing to sell it, but I got the distinct impression that she’s gonna go through with it, whether I like it or not. Why is taggert talking to you about trina? It’s not about that. I don’t know what you’re talking about. Taggert was concerned about the security at your wedding. He’s worried the killer may consider it an opportune time to strike. And trina will be there, as well as everyone closest to her. I’ve already talked to marcus about all of this, so I don’t know why he’s going behind my back and talking to you. All of a sudden, he’s gonna second-guess me about our daughter. Oh, oh, I see. There it is. There’s the judgment. I was looking for that. I’m not judging you. Whatever decisions I make with my life are my business. I have made that perfectly clear to you, jordan. I know that.

[ Chuckles ] But I have to say, you seem very stressed out by these decisions. It might do you some good to unburden herself. So you can have curtis all to yourself? It’s so nice of you to arrange this surprise for my mom. It’ll mean the world to her.

[ Chuckles ] Your mom is part of the family now, and so are you. It’s so nice of you to feel the way you do about us. I mean, I know that family’s, like, the most important thing to you in the world. I mean, you fly out to europe multiple times a year just to see a cousin that you just met. Yeah, that’s ’cause wanda and i are two peas in a pod, even though we just found out about each other in recent years. And I am so thankful we did. You found each other on a genealogy site, right? Yeah, that’s right.

[ Sighs ] It makes me wish I followed up on my match. You had a match? Yeah. Back in high school, I took a test, and I found out that I have a-a relative right here in port charles. But then I got freaked out because I didn’t want to meet random people, and then I deleted my account. You did?! Yeah, well, maybe one day you’ll feel ready. Everybody’s doing it. Even jordan was contemplating finding more family members before I left. And — and I gave her the name of my site. I wonder if she used it. Hmm. Huh. I don’t know, but she seems to be thinking about it. I remember she asked me about it at my celebration party after my charges got dropped. And you say you took your test when? Senior year. You ready to go? Yeah… so you’re saying that my daughter could be saved by my grandchild? It’s — that’s a miracle! Well, I hope so. You know? W-what are you saying? Willow’s putting on a brave face, but she — she seems anxious. Yeah. Yeah. She’s having a c-section, which is a major surgery. I mean, it’s routine, but it’s still risky, and I would imagine more so if you have leukemia. Right, and I just think she’s — you know, she’s nervous, but she’s acting like she’s not for — you know, for michael. I see. Yeah. There may be something that I can do for my daughter after all.


[ Five knocks on door ] No one knows we’re here. No. Wait. That’s felicia’s knock. Felicia? Felicia: Anna, open up. It’s cold out here! Okay. Ohh. Did you get everything you needed? You know that I don’t have allergies. I know you don’t have allergies. But I do have a surprise. Papa!

Ma petit! Nina could have seen us. Or at least heard us. She was right there! She doesn’t know anything. Okay? Nina has no self-control. What’s that supposed to mean? If nina had seen or heard anything, she would’ve made a huge deal out of it. You saw how nasty she got when she realized that you had forgiven me. Seriously, if — if nina knows anything, there’s no way she could stop herself from making a comment. What about sonny? Sonny does know about us. Would he tell her? No. No way. No way. Sonny knows the stakes. Okay? He might be mad at me, but he knows we have to be discreet. I’m just saying if ned or one of his allies reports us to the sec for insider trading, knowing that we’re in a relationship, that gives them a very good case. Okay. As long as we stop ourselves from any more spontaneous displays of affection… we’re okay. Our loving and giving son, wiley, decided that he wanted his little sister to have this when she comes out.

[ Both laugh ] Uh, now is not a good time, nina. I promise I won’t jeopardize her health in any way. I-I was just hoping that I could talk to you alone. Just for a few minutes. It’s okay. I’ll be fine. Just a few minutes. Yeah. T-that’s all I need. I’ll be right back. I assume sonny told you about the c-section? Yeah, but that’s not why I’m here. I’m here for you. I have plenty of support. Thanks. I know. I know. People like michael and his family, ones that you have to keep up a brave face for… when, really, you’re terrified. I wouldn’t say terrified. I can, um — I can understand if giving birth like this — it’s fraught for you. And I also understand if you can’t express your true feelings to… people like michael. But you don’t have to worry about my feelings. You can say your concerns and worries and your fears and your frustrations to me. You just let it rip if you want to. You — totally be honest with me. What do you want? I just — I just want to be here for my son. Coast clear? Yeah. Aunt stella and trina left. Ohh. Man, I love your aunt stella, but…

[ Chuckles ] No, no. You don’t have to explain, dad. I know at times auntie can be a bit much.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, stella already knows portia wanted me to get those genetic tests done. Portia and I didn’t tell aunt stella anything else. She doesn’t know that we asked you to perform at our wedding ceremony; she doesn’t know that we discussed the possibility of genetic counseling. We respect your privacy. Well, stella’s gonna know soon enough. Son… I went ahead and I got those tests done. This isn’t about me and curtis. Don’t patronize me, jordan! I see what you’ve been doing. I see it! You have been trying to use trina as a wedge between us ever since you got back. What are you talking about?! You are questioning me about this, questioning me about that. And then before that, you interrogate my daughter — without the courtesy of giving me a call? And then you arrest her? You know how a member of law enforcement should not contact the family of a suspect being questioned? What about contacting a family friend? Oh, well, that depends on the suspect and the situation. Suppose the P.O.I. Is the daughter of a long-time friend and former partner of said law-enforcement officer. You’re talking about trina.

[ Bell ringing ] It’s my fault. I am very sorry, curtis. Help me understand, jordan. You said you filed those papers. I thought I had. You don’t know the things I’ve done to protect you, curtis, trina, and the family you’re building. I don’t have designs on curtis, and I’m damn sure not holding anything over you to get to him, portia. And yet you keep bringing things up, don’t you? If I was going after him, I promise you — I would have said something to curtis months ago. Stella: Said what to curtis?

You already got genetic counseling? All the tests and everything? I did it all. And? Well, I haven’t gotten the results back yet, son. Wow. Dad, I-I know how reluctant you were. I know what this means to you. I’m just glad you pushed through a-and did it. Well, I got tired of all the uncertainty. I’m proud of you. You and, uh — you and portia. You pushed me. You convinced me. I’m just sorry I hadn’t told you sooner. I suppose you didn’t have to tell us at all. Actually, I considered that. But then I realized that I was just falling into my old ways. 40 years, I’ve been afraid of this disease, of this stigma. And it — it just — son, it just became second nature to go it alone. Well, we’ve learned to respect that your business is your business. No, no. I want it to be yours, too, son. Son, I’m tired. I’m tired of running. I’m tired of being afraid. I got a wonderful son. And I got a family who loves me, and I — and I want to share everything with them — the good, the bad. Man, I got loved ones. And I’m ready to let them in. In the words of aunt stella… amen to that. Ah. And I am just glad you feel comfortable with us. And, please — please don’t ever feel like you have to keep secrets from me. Well, portia — she pushed me to get the test. But you, son — you’re the reason I did it. This is great news, pop. But what if it isn’t? I thought you were still in london. You weren’t supposed to be here for another few days, stella. Oh, well, I knew you had a million things to do, and I wanted to help. Now…what’s this that curtis needs to know? Remember how I misplaced those divorce papers? Mercy me. Don’t tell me you two are still married! What?! Uh — no, no. We are officially divorced. There are no obstacles from me that would prevent curtis and portia from marrying. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to make a call. It was great seeing you, stella. Uh-huh. That seemed a bit tense. Yeah, it — you’re right. You’re right. I just have so many wedding details to deal with. It was just me. Which is why I’m here. Yes! Yes, yes, yes! And I’m so happy now that the two of you are here. And aunt stella came to take you to lunch and pick up your dress. Oh. Aunt stella, that’s so sweet. Um, can I just have five minutes? I have a consult with dr. Randolph. Oh, it’s okay. I can entertain myself. I missed you so much, papa. I even confronted grandpa victor, thinking he’d taken you away from me again. That was a really kind thing you did. It didn’t seem fair for charlotte to grieve her father’s pretend death after everything the two of them have been through. Plus, he’s helping us take down victor. That’s true. I think there’s more to it than that, though. You got me. Yeah. I missed so much of my daughters’ lives, always off on one adventure or another. Yeah. I know that toll. As do I. Seeing how vulnerable valentin was, missing his daughter… it triggered something in me. But don’t tell him I said that. I need him to live in fear of me in case he hurts you. Oh, that’s sweet. Your secret’s safe with me. Okay. You confronted grandpa? I ran into him and couldn’t help myself. Oh, charlotte. You are so strong, and you are so outspoken. And I’m so grateful that you want to take care of me. But I need you to promise me something. Don’t ever do that again. Just know I will always come back for you. Promise? Yeah. Yeah, I promise. It’ll take more than victor cassadine to keep us apart. So you went away because anna needed help? Yeah. Yeah, that’s right. She must be pretty special to you. She is. But she’s not as special as you. On one hand, I understand how selling brando’s garage could be… really upsetting. Probably feels like another goodbye. And with gladys more or less calling the shots, I would hate how powerless that would make me feel. On the other hand, the garage is just sitting there empty. I know that, logically. But it’s really hard for me to let it go. Right after brando died, I used to just… go there a-and sit. Hoping to feel his presence. Selling it would feel like I’m — I’m giving up a part of brando. I’m so sorry, maxie. I’m — I’m making this about me when we’re mourning your sister-in-law. No, no, no. There is no monopoly on grief. No right or wrong time for it. I lost it and cried when I found nathan’s favorite can of soup. You’re allowed your own moments. How do you do it, maxie? You have suffered almost as much loss as I have over the years. And you’re not just surviving, you’re thriving. How did you learn to keep going? Not just give up on life? You have a point. The last thing I want is to bring down michael’s spirits. Yeah. You don’t have to keep up a brave front for me. You can tell me anything you want. But I can’t, though. This is all so new — us. And with our relationship being what it is, I — I need my boundaries. If I give in, the — the lines get blurry, and I — I just — I can’t, um — I can’t take that right now. I appreciate your effort, but I-I just — I can’T.

[ Knock on door ] Forgive the interruption. Willow, I was able to move you up and get you into the O.R. Right now. Time to prep you for your c-section. Uh, you’ll have to go. Huh. Yeah. Yes? Good luck, willow. You’re dealing with a lot. How you doing? Um, you don’t have to worry about me. Well, you’re still my son, and I’ll always be here for you. If you need anything, you know I’m here for you. Nina: Michael. Michael. Dr. Randolph just went into willow’s room. Excuse me. How’d it go with willow? She doesn’t want to have anything to do with me. Aren’t you supposed to be at britt’s memorial? Yeah. Uh, yeah. But I-I can be late. I-I want to stay here until she goes to surgery. They’re prepping willow right now for her c-section. Alright. You know, sonny, it looks like drew has already forgiven carly for lying to him for months about willow being my daughter. He’s that kind of guy. When did you all of a sudden become drew’s best friend? I’m not his best friend. You can’t let carly get in your head. We have to focus on willow. That’s it. Willow… forget them. …Doesn’t want anything to do with me. You know why? Because she lied. If she would have told me the truth, I wouldn’t have fought with willow all these months! We are in this situation because of revenge. You don’t want to go down that road. Fighting does not help anyone. Well, sometimes wars… are unavoidable.

What are you planning? Nothing. Nothing. I am agreeing with you, sonny. Right now we need to focus on helping michael and willow. Carly: Hey. Is she delivering already? They moved the surgery up. Oh. Willow, you’re in good hands. I’ll be monitoring everything. And I’ll see you in recovery after your baby’s born! Oh. Hey. I love you. And everything’s gonna be fine. And I can’t wait to meet your little girl, okay? Drew: Godspeed, willow. We’re gonna be right here waiting for both of you, okay? Alright. You got this. Thank you. For bringing charlotte to me. Means more than you’ll ever know. You’re welcome. I’m really sorry your — your father hasn’t been here with you these past few months. You don’t owe me an apology. Actually, I owe you. You took care of my papa and brought him home to me. So thank you. Over time, you’ll learn that you don’t need to hold on to the physical things or personal mementos that remind you of your loved ones. You’ll except that you don’t need them to hold on to your memories. Ultimately, they’re just things. And your love can never be sold or torn down, whatever. Your memories of your loved ones — they’re gonna stay with you forever. They’re still wet.

[ Chuckles ] Pop, if it’s bad news, we’ll get through it together. Look, I’m not sure I’m gonna get the results back in time for your wedding. Okay. So? Well, then I’m not gonna be able to perform, I don’t think, if I don’t get these results back. Don’t even worry about that. Son, I could not bear my illness overshadowing your big day. Trust me. It’s not a thing. Okay? I’m not mad that you can’t perform at the ceremony, and I don’t want you to be, either. The only thing that matters to me is that I have my father — my father — at my wedding. And, sir, that is the greatest gift of all. Alright. Alright. I’m not gonna beat around the bush. You and I have been through too much together, and we know that we can trust and rely on each other. Am I right? Yes. What’s on your mind? Trina told me about a genealogy test that she took in school, around about the same time I took mine. But something feels… off about it. Oh? Yeah. She also said that you spoke to her about the genealogy test, and I wonder if that’s because you think there’s something suspicious about it, too.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Nikki: I won’t try to talk you out of whatever you’re planning to persuade adam to rejoin the family. He’s your son, you love him, and that’s all there is to it.

Victor: Good. I’m glad you see it that way.

Nikki: However, I would like you to consider a few things.

Victor: I’m listening.

Nikki: Right now, everything is peaceful, for the most part.

Victor: Right.

Nikki: Nicholas and victoria are in a good place again. The company is running well. It is thriving. Now, you put adam into that mix, and that lovely equilibrium will go right out the window.

Victor: Well, not necessarily.

Nikki: Especially if he doesn’t come back for the reason that nicholas did. Nicholas felt it was the right thing to do. He wanted to be in a position to support his family, not because you were pulling strings behind the scenes.

Victor: My darling, I appreciate your thoughts.

Nikki: Yes, but you’re going to ignore them, anyway.

Victor: No, no, no, I didn’t say that. It’s always important to me to hear what you have to say. Okay? You know that.

Nikki: Well, I’m not going to tell you how to handle this. I just want to reiterate that I don’t see this scenario ending the way you do. What if adam likes his life the way it is? What about when he finds out that you are manipulating his downfall? He may never have anything to do with you again.

Victor: My baby, I hear what you’re saying, but I want to assure you that… I know my son, and I have the situation well in hand.

Kyle: I’m compiling information before the jabot board meets in february. Would you have some time this afternoon to pull some things together for me? Excellent. Please bring me the most recent status reports for all the accounts adam newman has been overseeing. Yes. All of them.

Victoria: So, uh, now that it’s just the two of us again, is there anything that you want to tell me?

Nick: You’re just not gonna let it go, are you?

Victoria: I just felt like there was something that maybe you wanted to share before tucker interrupted us.

Nick: You mean before you invited him over here to toy with him and mess with his mind?

Victoria: Well, I have to admit, it was fun turning the tables on him and watching him squirm for a change.

Nick: I highly doubt tucker is used to being the entertainment for his competitors.

Victoria: Mm-hmm. I’m sure that he’s not. You’re trying very hard to change the subject, which makes me more determined to find out what’s wrong with you. And don’t say nothing because I know better. So whatever it is, spill. I won’t say a word to anyone. I promise.

Nick: I already told you. It’S…dad.

Victoria: I know. You said it was business. And I’m not buying that. So what’s the real story?

Nick: Alright. I’m sick and tired of the way he keeps tearing down sally and pressuring me to end our relationship. Uh… you know, it’s, uh… he just dismisses it, and I’m tired of it, you know? And I just want to know when it’s gonna end.

Victoria: Is that a serious question? Come on. Dad is always going to feel the need to control our lives. Not that I condone it, of course. Look, to be honest with you, I don’t really see a future for you and sally. You are — you’re just too good for her, nicholas.

Nick: Vick —

Victoria: You’re so far out of her league, it isn’t even funny.

Nick: I don’t need this from you, either, okay?

Victoria: Why do I get the feeling that there’s something else you’re not telling me?

Lauren: My head is still in the clouds after last night. I mean, I can’t believe fen flew in to watch me accept my award.

Michael: I know what you mean. And finally meeting trey.

Lauren: Wasn’t he the sweetest?

Michael: They make a great couple.

Lauren: It’s so touching watching them in love and… even more amazing that our son is happy and healthy and excited for the future.

Michael: Yeah, their happiness is infectious.

Lauren: It is. Oh, there’s phyllis.

Michael: Hey, phyllis.

Lauren: Hi!

Phyllis: Hi! Hi. I didn’t know I’d run into you two.

Lauren: Well, now that you do, please join us.

Phyllis: I don’t want to impose.

Lauren: Oh, come on.

Michael: Don’t be ridiculous. What are friends for? Sit. Yeah.

Phyllis: Thank you.

Lauren: You were on my list to call later.

Michael: So, how are you today?

Phyllis: Terrible. Terrible. Um, I can’t catch a break with my kids.

Lauren: Oh. Are things still strained with summer?

Phyllis: Well, I mean, of course, because she fired me, so… but now there’s tension between me and daniel.

Lauren: Oh, no. I thought everything was okay.

Phyllis: What’s my crime? All I’m trying to do is help my kids. All I was trying to do with daniel is support his project and support something that was important to him.

Michael: Why am I sure there’s more to this?

Nate: So, come on — tell me. How do you know tucker mccall is interested in daniel’s gaming platform?

Audra: Because he’s the person I went to see earlier.

Nate: What?

Audra: Tucker’s the one who texted, wanting to meet with me.

Nate: The personal business you said you had to handle.

Audra: Yes.

Nate: And when you got back, you were in a great mood. You know, someone else in my place might wonder if you’re working tucker… or me… or both of us. When a cold comes on strong,

Phyllis: Okay, well, what I’m about to tell you — it can’t leave this table.

Lauren: Well, of course.

Phyllis: Alright. Um, it seems that, uh, chancellor-winters may not be the home for my son’s new project.

Lauren: You mean the gaming platform?

Phyllis: Yeah. It seems that chancellor-winters is in corporate limbo.

Michael: Oh. Well, I’m sorry to hear that.

Lauren: Yeah, daniel must be so frustrated.

Phyllis: Yeah. So I decided to be proactive and, um, shop the project around to see if I can get financial backing from another company, and, um, you know, just in case things at chancellor-winters imploded.

Lauren: Wait. What? Without consulting daniel?

Michael: Why would you meddle with that?

Phyllis: Well, I wasn’t meddling. It was just an exploratory conversation.

Lauren: And you don’t think that’s overstepping just a wee bit?

Phyllis: Well, no, because daniel gave me the authority. I’m his right-hand man.

Michael: On the technical and staffing side so he could keep his eye on the big picture…

Phyllis: Okay.

Michael: …Like deciding which company to choose to ally himself with.

Phyllis: Well, I just wanted to be proactive. I knew how important this project is to my son, but it has him doubting me again, so, i mean, I don’t know what to do. I can’t win. I mean, do I try too hard? I don’t get it.

Michael: Ohh, phyllis, i think there’s a common denominator with these problems with the children. Diane. Your intractable hostility towards her. It cost you your job at marchetti, and from what you’ve already told us, it’s creating friction between you and daniel.

Phyllis: Um, okay, diane has nothing to do with this issue right now with me and daniel. And I don’t want to get lectured about diane. Please.

Lauren: Too bad.

Victor: Just to calm your mind, I’ve taken into consideration how adam’s return would affect both victoria and nicholas. That’s why I want to find something for adam that he can run independent of them. That way, we all win.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] I hate to see you make an enemy of jack again, not to mention tucker. And then you’ll be let down when adam rejects you again.

Victor: You make that sound as if it is inevitable.

Nikki: I believe that it is.

Victor: No, it isn’T. I don’t think so. Adam will come to his senses. It’ll all work out as I have planned.

Nikki: Well, I hope it does, for your sake.

Victor: Now, there’s another issue we need to discuss, involving the break-in into our home in chicago.

Nikki: Yeah. What about it?

Victor: Jack and diane jenkins were behind that, weren’t they? They stole your jewelry in order to set up that stark fellow. When were you gonna tell me?

Nikki: I was so upset when i realized what they had done. I was this close to telling chance that jack was the real culprit.

Victor: Then why the hell didn’t you?

Nikki: Ohh, there doesn’t seem to be anything to be done now. I mean, jack and diane were very careful not to implicate themselves. I’ll get my necklace back soon. And, frankly, I’m relieved that jeremy stark is off the streets.

Victor: That bastard belongs back in prison.

Nikki: I wish phyllis had never reached out to him. She’s the reason why he was here in town, putting us all in danger. But given the circumstances, I’m willing to look the other way.

Victor: I’ve got to tell you, I’m furious with jack abbott breaking into our home there. He took a huge risk.

Nikki: Yeah. For diane. Makes me sick.

Victor: Baby, put that woman out of your mind! She’s jack’s problem. They deserve each other.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Look, I could use some back-up here, alright? You may not see a future for me and sally, but that’s up to me, alright? I’m gonna decide where it goes from here and what it looks like.

Victoria: Okay. I hear your frustration.

Nick: I’m just tired of feeling like I have to defend sally — or why it’s even an issue. She’s done nothing to deserve the constant attacks or dad’s never-ending insistence that i end things with her. Vick, I’m asking you, if you have any negative thoughts about it, just keep them to yourself and accept that sally is a part of my life, alright?

[ Cellphone ringing ] Oh, it’s sally. She and chloe went to meet with jill to pitch her a business idea. I have to take this. Hey. I was hoping you’d call. How’d the big presentation go? Jill did what?

Tessa: Okay, so…

Mariah: Yeah.

Tessa: That’s the head, right, that’s facing us?

Mariah: Elena!

Tessa: Hi.

Mariah: Hi! Okay. You have to come see this.

Elena: What’s up?

Tessa: It’s from delphine, the woman whose child we’re gonna adopt.

Elena: Ah.

Mariah: They’re both healthy and doing fantastic, but she just came from her latest check-up with her ob and… ta-da!

Elena: Ah!

Mariah: It’s her latest ultrasound. Isn’t it amazing?

Elena: Aww, that is so sweet of her to send this.

[ Chuckling ] Ooh. You two must be so excited. I’m so happy for you.

Mariah: Ah. [ Laughs ]

Tessa: Thank you.

Mariah: Are you okay?

Elena: Yeah. Why do you ask?

Mariah: Uh, because you don’t seem okay.

Elena: I’m fine.

Mariah: Come on. Elena, it’s us. If something is bothering you, we want to know about it.

Elena: You’re celebrating today. I don’t want to dampen the mood.

Tessa: You wouldn’t be.

Mariah: Please talk to us. If you don’t, we’re just gonna worry, so…

Elena: [ Chuckles ] Okay.

[ Sighing ] Uh… it’s about nate and his new job, specifically this new woman he hired as his coo. I don’t trust her.

Audra: I assure you I work for you and you alone because you have the drive and instincts of a winner. I want to share in the success newman media is gonna become under your leadership, which is why I responded to tucker’s request to go meet with him. I was curious to see what his next move will be so I can keep you informed.

Nate: And?

Audra: Well, tucker’s original goal — okay? — His big master plan, was to gain control of jabot and put ashley at the helm and then do the same thing with chancellor-winters, putting devon in charge, so he can work side by side with the two people he claims to love the most in the world.

Nate: Ambitious.

Audra: Yeah, a little too ambitious. His plan went down in flames. But I know tucker’s mind, okay? He’s the kind of man who needs a target, and now he’s doubly motivated after this big failure.

Nate: I assume tucker wants to use you to feed him information about newman, the way he did chancellor-winters, to find some vulnerability?

Audra: I thought that at first, too, but, I mean, he seemed more curious about our interest in daniel romalotti’s omega sphere project — because, of course, he’s interested, too.

Nate: Mm. Well, props to daniel for creating what’s suddenly the hottest new business venture in town.

Audra: Yeah.

Nate: The good news is… I’ve got a secret weapon.

Audra: Which is?

Nate: You.

Audra: Hmm.

Nate: You’ve worked closely with tucker long enough to have gotten adept at predicting which direction he’ll take.

Audra: Allowing us to stay a step ahead of the competition.

Nate: I like the sound of that.

Audra: And I like seeing you like this — hungry, loving the game.

Nate: You know, I never got a chance to experience this at chancellor-winters because devon held me back. But now that I’m the boss, I see why people like victor and victoria find the — the power intoxicating.

Audra: It looks good on you.

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Nick: Unreal.

Victoria: What? What happened?

Nick: Sally and chloe flew to los angeles at jill’s request to pitch her their new idea of their interior design business. They’ve been working for weeks — seriously, day and night — so they could dazzle jill. And then out of nowhere, she just cancels.

Victoria: Hmm. Did she offer any explanation?

Nick: Nah, she just said that she was having second thoughts and she wasn’t sure their concept would be a good fit with chancellor-winters. When sally asked her what changed — because she was so enthusiastic the day before — jill wouldn’t elaborate.

Victoria: Maybe she thought that it didn’t make sense right now, given all the turmoil that the company is going through.

Nick: Then why didn’t she just say that?

Victoria: I don’t know. There could have been any number of reasons for the change that jill didn’t feel the need to share.

Nick: No. Something’s not right about jill so abruptly pulling the plug. And I intend to get to the bottom of it. I’m feeling better.

Kyle: Huh. Well, adam, I definitely see a pattern here.

Summer: Kyle?

Kyle: Hey! How was, uh, your lunch with the new head of accounting?

Summer: It went well. I think she’s gonna be a really good fit. What were you looking at?

Kyle: Uh, just some corporate reports I requested. Bunch of boring numbers.

Summer: Really? You looked pretty engrossed.

Kyle: Well, that’s why I’m the suit and you’re the creative genius.

[ Elevator doors opening ]

Daniel: Hey. Uh, sorry to interrupt, guys. Summer, if you’ve got a minute, um, to talk, there’s something i could really use your help with.

Summer: Uh…

Kyle: It’s fine. Go ahead. I was just gonna drop these off in my dad’s office.

Daniel: Want to go?

Summer: Yeah. Yeah.

Lauren: How many times have we talked about how your hatred for diane is going to eat you up alive?

Michael: It’s so not worth the trouble.

Lauren: And worse yet, it’s affecting the relationships with both of your kids.

Phyllis: Mnh, no. The situation with daniel has nothing to do with diane. It’s about me being clear-eyed about the situation. Listen, I don’t want all of my son’s hard work being destroyed by some vague promises from lily.

Lauren: I thought you said they had a signed contract. I mean, that’s not exactly vague.

Michael: The last time you clashed with him, daniel told you that he was worried he’d made a mistake hiring you because of your animosity towards diane, remember? It was — it was — it was consuming you so much, it was interfering with your ability to do your work.

Phyllis: No, that conversation was based on me just being distracted. But I was still doing my work.

Lauren: In your opinion. It seems like daniel has disagreed with that.

Phyllis: Okay, well, there’s very little I could do anyway because the project hasn’t been greenlit, alright? So I just shopped it around to see if I could get some interest, and I did.

Lauren: Yeah, but it doesn’t matter if daniel doesn’t want to work with that company.

Phyllis: Well, lauren, it’s not like I closed the deal. It’s up to him if he wants to work with them or not. And that’s what I told him. But he didn’t listen to me.

Michael: Well, these things tend to be cumulative. You know, any previous conflict could have intensified your son’s reaction to you today.

Phyllis: Guys, he’s upset at me because of his own conflicts. Trust me.

Daniel: [ Sighs ] Thanks for taking this walk with me. After my blow-out with mom, i just really needed to get some air. What is with her lately, huh? God knows she’s never been easy to deal with, but, I mean, this seems like next level. Hey. You alright? You seemed a little off at the office. Did you and kyle have a disagreement?

Summer: Um…not exactly. It’s — it’s nothing kyle said or did. It’s this feeling that I got, like — like he’s hiding something from me. I just… I really hope I’m wrong.

Victor: Hello, kyle.

Kyle: Hello.

Victor: Please close the door. So…what have you got for me?

Kyle: I’ve been going over all the accounts adams’s been handling at jabot, all the duties my dad’s assigned to him, every decision he’s made since he took the job. Then I spoke with the various department heads of jabot who report to him.

Victor: And?

Kyle: I found something interesting, something I think you can use to get adam out of the company.

Victor: Let’s hear it. Tyson boneless buffalo bites and hot wings

“The young and the restless”

will continue. What’s the #1 retinol brand

Mariah: You’re talking about audra charles.

Elena: Yeah. How’d you know?

Mariah: Well, word gets around fast. And the newman media coo is a very high-profile position. Also, I think you’re right to be wary of her.

Elena: Why? Have you had any bad experiences with her?

Mariah: No, not personally. But she and noah were a couple when they lived in london, and the relationship and its aftermath — it messed him up pretty badly.

Elena: Oh. I had no idea. Although, I mean, I think we’ve all been through some messy breakups, myself included.

[ Laughs ] So I’m not really sure that that’s particularly damning?

Mariah: Well, you are very logical and understanding and willing to give people the benefit of the doubt, which, on one hand, makes it very, very hard to gossip with you, but on the other hand, it means that if you’re getting a bad vibe from somebody, there’s probably something to it.

Tessa: Well, when you say that you don’t trust her, is it because you think that she has designs on nate?

Elena: I think she’s exerting an influence on nate. No, not romantically. I can imagine him cheating on me with her.

Mariah: Yeah, I would certainly hope not. After everything he had to do to get you back? No, he should feel that he’s lucky to be with you and even to have another chance at all.

Elena: Yeah. No, I think the thing that’s bothering me is that she seems to be stoking nate’s ambitions, which I think she started when they were first working at chancellor-winters.

Tessa: How do you mean?

Elena: Well, I mean, nate’s always been driven. That’s what made him such a brilliant surgeon. But ever since he joined the corporate world, that drive for success has suddenly warped into this lust for power. And he’s done some things he’s not proud of. So he made the decision to get back to who he is at his core and to focus on behaving ethically as much as being a success.

Mariah: And your fear is that his new coo is going to bring him back to the dark side.

Victoria: Hi. You wanted to talk?

Nate: Uh, yes. I’ve been pursuing something. It’s in the early stages, but i thought I should fill you in.

Victoria: Shoot.

Nate: Daniel romalotti has designed a video game that chancellor-winters has been developing.

Victoria: Ah. Well, I’m afraid that’s an industry that I’m not particularly well versed in.

Nate: Suffice it to say, chancellor-winters intended to use his concept to launch an entire gaming platform called omega sphere.

Victoria: Ooh. Well, that sounds impressive. But, uh, you used past tense. “Chancellor winters intended to use it.”

Nate: I’ve heard rumblings of more internal problems over there.

Victoria: Really?

Nate: Nothing too specific at this point, just some hints of instability. But I see potential for great opportunity.

Victoria: Look, I appreciate your instinct, but are you sure that you want to provoke your family, trying to steal this project away from them? You’ve already been through so much with them.

Nate: It’s business, not personal. If I may quote from the master.

Victoria: Point taken. But you know I had to ask.

Nate: Look, I’m not talking about an end run here, nothing to get their lawyers riled up. I just happened to get a glimpse at how serious their problems are after phyllis asked me for a meeting.

Victoria: Phyllis?

Nate: She’s daniel’s technical director.

Victoria: Ah.

Nate: She wanted to gauge our interest, should they lose their corporate backing. We had an intriguing discussion. Lily found out about it afterwards and wasn’t too happy.

Victoria: I can imagine.

Nate: She got all territorial on me, made it clear that she and daniel had a deal in writing. But if that falls through, i want to be the first one to grab this and run with it. It would be a great fit at newman media. It has potential for massive growth. Now, if you want me to fill you in on the details —

Victoria: Oh, no, there’s — there’s no need for that. Actually, just put something in a memo. I trust your instincts. And if the opportunity arises to acquire, um…

Nate: Omega sphere.

Victoria: Right. You have my full support.

Nate: Good. Just so you know, there is one wrinkle.

Phyllis: Listen, I’m gonna tell you something. Uh, please keep it to yourself. Things haven’t been going that well for daniel. Uh, his art career stalled in georgia. The commissions weren’t coming in, you know? Therefore, money wasn’t coming in. Uh, the business just fell apart. It just wasn’t happening anymore.

Lauren: That must have been so rough on him.

Phyllis: Yeah. Yeah. I didn’t even know about it. But he said, um, he took out his frustrations on heather and he felt like he wasn’t holding up his end of the marriage, right? And things got more tense. I guess they were arguing a lot. And so heather decided to take lucy and leave…

[Voice breaking] And, um, go to portugal.

Michael: I am surprised that heather would go to such an extreme.

Phyllis: Well…

Michael: Oh.

Phyllis: According to daniel, he pushed heather away. That’s according to daniel.

[ Stammers ]

[ Voice breaking ] It’s really raw right now. You know, he’s raw and he’s not doing well. And this project is a way for him to pull himself out, right? So, it means so much to him. Therefore, it means a lot to me. But he’s just finally pulling himself out of the mud. And, you know, he feels like this way, he can — he can make it right by heather and… oh. I can solve this. I know how to solve this problem. Okay everyone, our mission is complete balanced nutrition. I love adore me. Especially for valentine’s day. They always have a different style and color. The details are amazing, I always find the perfect fit. Valentine’s day special – get your first set for just $24.95. That’s 50% off at adoreme.Com.

to your day…

Phyllis: Oh, my gosh, heather is the key.

Lauren: I don’t like where this is going.

Michael: Neither do I.

Phyllis: No, no, no, no, no. Just — just hear me out. Hear me out. So, if I go to heather and i convince her that she should give daniel another chance, i really do believe I can help him out of this situa– I don’t believe — how come I didn’t think of this before?

Lauren: Are you even listening to yourself? The whole reason that daniel lost it on you is because you didn’t honor his boundaries. I mean, in fact, you went crashing straight through them. You disrespected him, you decided that you knew best, and you over-functioned.

Michael: [ Chuckles ] Good on you. Fancy word for “meddling.”

Lauren: Yeah, you took everything into your own hands. You pitched his business to another company without informing him. You cut him out of the whole process. He had literally no say on his own project. Of course he’s gonna be royally pissed off at you and lash out. Honestly, I would, too.

Michael: And now you’re talking about doing it in his personal life.

Phyllis: I don’t consider me going to heather and telling her how great daniel is doing right now and how he’s changed his life around would be considered meddling.

Michael: [ Sighs ]

Lauren: [ Sighs ] You know, you have a beautiful heart. And I completely understand why you’d want to do this.

Michael: [ Chuckling ] I don’t because it is gonna backfire spectacularly.

Lauren: So I think that you should call heather once. And if she does not pick up and she doesn’t respond to your voicemail, please, please walk away from this.

Summer: Basically, my grandpa wants to drag kyle into this scheme to mess with adam’s life.

Daniel: Mm. For his own good, of course.

Summer: Exactly! That’s how he sees it, only it’s really not funny. But my grandpa has convinced himself that he can screw up what adam has going at jabot, have some epic opportunity lined up for him at newman, and then adam will just come running back into the family’s open arms.

Daniel: [ Sighs ] Yeah, I would say it’s unbelievable, but look at our mom living in her own alternative reality.

Summer: They never learn.

Daniel: [ Laughs ]

Summer: Grandpa doesn’t realize that this isn’t gonna work out, just like every other time he’s tried to manipulate adam. But he’s just gonna do what he wants to do. And kyle — kyle hates that adam is working at jabot.

Daniel: Well, what’d kyle say?

Summer: He was considering it at first and then I laid out all the ways that it could go wrong and he claimed that he wanted no part of it.

Daniel: Hmm.

Kyle: Without sharing too much company information, here are my notes on adam’s performance. Based on what I’ve seen of his output so far and the feedback from jabot’s management team, the effort he’s putting forth is mediocre at best. He started strong and then quickly slid, and now he’s treading water more than anything. Nothing egregious, but hardly the caliber of work I would expect from a guy at his level.

Victor: Well, kyle… thank you for the information. Now let’s see how we can take advantage of that. (Vo) yoplait has something for everything you do.

Summer: Kyle told me that he wasn’t gonna take part in my grandpa’s scheme, and I — i know he hates the idea getting swept up into newman family drama. I mean, he’s got enough of that already with his mother and ours.

Daniel: Mm. Yeah. Mom has been a little out of control lately. She went behind my back. She — she started making decisions about my project without telling me. And then she says, oh, you know, it’s to protect my interests. I finally lost it with her.

Summer: What took you so long?

Daniel: [ Chuckles ] I don’t know. I had to tell her. You know, I was like, “we are not partners. You are my employee. You work for me.” Then I, uh — then I might have mentioned that I was wondering if it had ever been a good idea to hire her in the first place.

Summer: I mean, I don’t blame you. It’s not fair for her to put you in that position.

Daniel: She did the same thing to you.

Summer: I know, and I hate that I had to let her go. I mean, she was doing great work at marchetti, but she just would not let up. And kyle and I couldn’t take it anymore. Her feud with diane — it was just too big of a distraction.

Daniel: [ Chuckles ] Tell me about it.

Summer: I know that firing her was the right move, but — i got to be honest — I am a little worried at how rattled she’s been since diane came back to town.

Daniel: Well, I’m just hoping this most recent confrontation makes her take a good, long, hard look at her recent behavior, and, you know, maybe she’ll rein it in. I didn’t say I was holding my breath.

[ Breathes deeply ]

Phyllis: Guys, um, i appreciate the feedback. You know I do. I am under no illusion that a simple phone call can take away all the pain that daniel and his family have been through — okay? — And fix everything. I got it.

Lauren: Alright. Good. I’m glad you realize that.

Michael: Okay. Okay. What aren’t you telling us? Because I know that look. There’s more to this.

Lauren: Is michael right?

Michael: I think I know. You’re not just making a phone call.

Phyllis: No. This is a conversation that needs to be in person. I am going to portugal, and I’m going to talk to heather and lucy face-to-face.

Mariah: Not that you’re asking for my advice.

Elena: No, please. I would love to hear your take on this.

Mariah: I think that you should be discussing this with nate, openly and honestly, you know, like good partners do.

Elena: Which is how we got out of the rough patch that we just went through, when things were so contentious with devon and lily.

[ Sighs ] It took a lot of energy, but nate and I are finally on the right track. And I trusted that the changes he talked about making would be real and lasting.

Tessa: But now you’re having some doubts because of this woman who’s a bad influence.

Elena: Pretty much. So now I am reluctant to share my fears with nate again.

Mariah: Well, you shouldn’t be, not if the issues are still there.

Elena: [ Sighs ] What worries me about audra is i can tell that she thinks business is all about winning. And that was the mind-set that nate had when he was working with chancellor-winters. When he got this new job, I was really hoping that it would be a fresh start. He didn’t have to deal with the conflict of working with his family any more. But I’m starting to see that his drive for power — I don’t think it ever really went away. And given the chance, I think it’s only gonna get worse.

Victoria: A wrinkle, huh? Well, I guess they make life interesting.

Nate: Turns out there’s someone else in the mix. Tucker. He’s snooping around omega sphere, too. Not that I can’t outmaneuver him.

Victoria: Well, I appreciate your confidence, but —

Nate: In fact, I’ve already devised a strategy.

Victoria: Well, that’s what I like to hear. But you don’t need to worry about tucker mccall. I’m gonna take care of him myself very soon.

Nick: Dad, I know you don’t like sally, and I know you like that I’m with her even less. But does that give you a right to intervene?

Victor: Explain yourself, son.

Nick: Sally had a huge opportunity with chancellor-winters to pitch her new idea, but when she and chloe got to L.A., Jill wouldn’t even take the meeting.

Victor: Stuff happens, you know?

Nick: Did you speak with jill and convince her to rip this away from sally? Yes or no?

[ Dramatic music ]

Bill: Is that what you’re saying, katie? If I see to it that sheila goes back to prison and pays for her crimes, there could be a chance for us? We could be a family again?

Steffy: It’s so hard to comprehend. Bill falling for sheila, falling for her lies.

Hope: Well, let’s not pretend, you know, like he hasn’t made bad decisions in the past. But I mean, you’re right. I mean, this– this is beyond.

Steffy: Blackmailing us to keep sheila free. Bill’s totally fine with just a– a murderer out there. Puts us all in danger. He doesn’t seem to care about us.

Charlotte: Steffy? Oh, excuse me. I hope I’m not interrupting. I just wanted to let you know that the eye on fashion interview was postponed. But I’ll update you as soon as it’s rescheduled.

Steffy: Great. Thank you, charlotte. But honestly, I don’t know if I’m gonna wanna reschedule. I don’t think I wanna give spencer publications that much publicity.

Taylor: Knock, knock.

Steffy: Mom, hey.

Taylor: Hi.

Steffy: You remember charlotte?

Taylor: Oh, hi, charlotte. Yes, of course. Forrester’s new up-and-coming exec.

Charlotte: Well, I wouldn’t say that.

Taylor: Oh. See, and she’s modest too. You throw in a sense of humor, they’ll never let you go.

Steffy: Hey, you gotta laugh. Especially these days.

Taylor: Yeah. Well, with sheila, on the loose happy moments are few and far between.

Charlotte: I really feel for you, steffy. I mean, your whole family. Knowing that justice wasn’t served, it makes no sense. How is it possible that sheila carter isn’t spending the rest of her life behind bars?

Steffy: None of us are happy about it, that’s for sure.

Charlotte: Have you thought about maybe bringing a civil suit against her? There’s gotta be some way to make her pay for what she did.

Steffy: I don’t know if that’s in my best interest.

Charlotte: Well, my dad’s a lawyer. I’d be happy to put you in touch. You know, if you ever change your mind. I mean, anyone who puts a bullet inside of another human being should not be walking around free. Oh, it’s the reporter. Reschedule or cancel?

Steffy: Reschedule.

Charlotte: You’ve got it. Nice to see you again, dr. Hayes.

Taylor: Yeah, you too. Thanks. Anybody that puts a bullet in another human–

Steffy: Do not go there, mom. Do not.

Taylor: No, I’m fixing this. I’m– I’m fixing this. I’m turning myself in.

Steffy: We will figure out another way, okay?

Taylor: Nope.

Hope: Someone needs to get through to bill and get him to change his mind. That– that is what needs to happen.

Steffy: Right. We just have to figure out how.

Bill: Could there be a chance for us katie? Sheila goes back to prison and we could be a family again?

Katie: Yes. Yes. You, me, and will I want us to be close. I– I want us to be a family and for us to put our son’s happiness first, his wellbeing. And if sheila is in prison, then of course that’s possible. But as far as you and me, I–

Bill: You won’t even entertain the idea.

Sheila: Hello, katie. This is surprising. Didn’t think we were expecting any company. Did you offer her any– any tea? And we have some cake leftover as well.

Katie: That’s okay. I’m good.

Sheila: You sure? It’s really no trouble.

Katie: I get it, sheila. I get it. You’re lady of the house now.

Sheila: Yeah. I certainly am.

Introducing astepro allergy.

Taylor: I’m the only one who can put an end to this. I– I’m just gonna go to the police.

Steffy: All that guarantees you, mom, is you getting locked up? Not sheila.

Hope: Steffy has a point. I mean, with bill’s influence, he– he’ll probably find a way to keep sheila out of jail.

Steffy: He’ll just bribe another judge and another judge if he has to.

Hope: Exactly. Taylor, I– I don’t think it’s worth it. I– I really don’T.

Taylor: Okay, but appealing to bill isn’t working, so.

Hope: Not yet, but maybe eventually.

Taylor: Eventually. Eventually, after sheila hurts someone that we love. God, I’m so mad at myself. All of this, all of this is happening because I lost control that night. Because of what I did back then, sheila’s free.

Steffy: Come here.

Katie: I wouldn’t get too comfortable around here, sheila, because bill is going to catch on to what you’re doing.

Sheila: What I’m– I’m doing. I– I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Katie: You’re using him.

Sheila: For love and companionship, sure. Then, I guess we’re using each other.

Katie: You don’t love him. You love that you’ve brainwashed him into keeping you out of prison.

Sheila: You don’t know what I’m feeling.

Katie: You feel? Really? Like a normal human being feels? Because I don’t think so.

Sheila: Why is it everyone thinks they can talk to me like this? Such horrible, vicious attacks.

Katie: It’s not an attack if it’s the truth. It’s just a fact. You have tried to kill people we love. You are horrible and vicious. You put a bullet in your son. You left him to die.

Sheila: I don’t wanna argue– I don’t wanna argue about this! And I’m really tired of defending myself to people like you.

Katie: Because it’s indefensible. There’s no defense. None.

Sheila: God I feel terrible for the pain that I caused them.

Katie: Oh, okay.

Sheila: It’s a pain that I– I’ve never had before in my life, to know that I was responsible for hurting my own son.

Katie: Yeah, but you still did it. You still left him to die in that alley. You didn’t call for help. And this is the woman that we’re supposed to trust with our child? Really, bill? She solves her problems by shooting people. I don’t know how you trust her with yourself.

Sheila: It’s because he knows I’m the one person that won’t hurt him. Just like he won’t hurt me.

Katie: You almost killed your child, but bill’s safe with you? Yeah, sure.

Sheila: If you ever truly understood him, you’d see how safe he finally is. He’s with a woman that can stand next to him. You wouldn’t understand that, would you? Because you never did. You never could appreciate the man that he truly is. It scares you doesn’t it, katie? The sword that he wears around his neck, how it symbolizes power and protections, those are things that you never wanted him to have. How this symbol defines him. And I admire that. Now, for the first time in our lives, bill and i have found our true partners because I accept and I admire him for the man he is just as he does me.

Katie: A sociopath that puts everyone around her in danger. You embrace this? You accept it? Well, I can’T. I won’T. I won’t accept it for you or for me or for our son. She has somehow convinced you that your kindred spirits, that you deserve each other. But she’s wrong because you’re nothing like her. I don’t know how she’s managed it, but she’s convinced you to blackmail steffy and finn. But you, you can make that right. You can undo it, and I believe you will. And I won’t give up on you. You hear me? I will fight for you. I will fight to bring you back to us. I will fight for you to see reality. And I don’t give up. You know that. I don’t care how long it takes. I won’t lose you. I won’t lose the father of my son to sheila carter. Listen, I’m done settling. Because this is my secret.

Bill: You’re upset.

Sheila: No, it’s– it’s just–

Bill: You can tell me. You don’t have to hide anything.

Sheila: It’s really hard for me to see you two together. She’s your ex-wife. You share a son. I just can’t help wonder if she were to give you another chance.

Bill: You overheard katie and me talking, didn’t you? About being a family again. I really need you to hear me. Did I get caught up in the memories? Sure, I did. I miss the family we were. It’s probably more accurate to see the family we were trying to be. It wasn’t sustainable. Not like this. Not like us. I appreciate you, sheila. You came into my life when I needed you most. I’m committed to you. You don’t have to question that.

Sheila: Thank you. Oh, it means so much for me to hear you say that. Guess I just have to remind myself that the bad outweigh the good. The way she treated you, the way she tried to change you. Walking out on your time and time again. I can see why you finally felt it was time to move on to someone else. Everyone deserves to be fully accepted for who they are. Even the two of us.

Taylor: You didn’t have to leave work.

Steffy: Well, it’s not like I can speak freely at the office.

Taylor: Because your mom almost killing someone isn’t really water cooler talk, right? Are the kids here?

Steffy: They’re– they’re out. They’re out with amelia. They’re safe. Have I talked to you off the ledge? You’re not still thinking about turning yourself in, are you?

Taylor: Oh, god. Steffy, this– this isn’t just about sheila going to prison.

Steffy: What do you mean?

Taylor: Even if bill wasn’t blackmailing us, I’d– I’d still be holding this terrible secret. I should have never gotten away with this.

Steffy: Mom, you had no idea that you were gonna go over to bill’s house and harm him.

Taylor: Yeah, but I did. I shot him in the back. He didn’t even do what I thought he did.

Steffy: Hey, you can’t change what happened.

Taylor: No, I can’t stop thinking about it. I can’t sleep. I– I am tossing and turning. My thoughts or ruminating.

Steffy: Mom. Mom. Go upstairs. Lie down. Get some rest. Just close your eyes and relax. You need to take care of yourself, okay?

Taylor: Yeah. Okay.

Steffy: We’re gonna get through to bill. Sheila’s going to prison, not you.

Bill: Your mother tried

to kill me, not liam.

She shot me in the back

and put me in the hospital.

[ Knock on the door ]

Steffy: Katie.

Katie: Hi.

Steffy: What is– what’s going on?

Katie: I just came from bill’S. Seeing the hold that sheila has on him, knowing what it means for all of us, especially my son, I can’t let it go on. I need to know what he has on you.

Steffy: Excuse me?

Katie: I need to know why you and finn are not testifying against her. If I’m gonna get bill away from sheila, I’ve got to know what’s going on. And I need you to tell me right now. Postmenopausal women with hr+ her2-

Sheila: You know, you always put on such a brave, strong front, such bravado. But I– I know that you hurt just like everyone else. Your heart breaks too. Other people seem to forget that about you, but I never will. Now, to think that taylor shot you in this very room in the back, you had no chance to defend yourself. It’s too bad you’re holier than thou ex-wife doesn’t know about that. Maybe then she would shut up a bit, if she knew that we weren’t the only ones that did something bad.

Steffy: It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter what bill has on me, okay?

Katie: Of course, it matters. If it’s keeping you from testifying against sheila. Steffy, you’ve gotta help me here. I was just with bill. He is so unlike himself. He is a shell of himself. I’m scared.

Steffy: I am too. For many reasons.

Katie: The bill I know, the bill I married never would’ve done anything like this. He would never have put his grandchildren, his children in danger. Steffy, please. I need to know what’s going on. Sheila shot your husband, her own son. Then she turned the gun on you and left you both to die in that alley. She shot your mother. She shot your grandmother. Are you really okay with her not being in prison?

Steffy: I’m not. I’m not okay with it. I want sheila in prison for the rest of her life.

Katie: Then you can do something about it. You don’t have to give into bill. Why? Why didn’t you give a statement to the judge?

Steffy: It’s complicated.

Katie: It’s not that complicated. Sheila belongs in prison. What does bill have on you? What is he blackmailing you with?

Taylor: It’s me.

Steffy: Mom, no.

Taylor: It’s because of me. I shot him.

[ Voice breaks ] I’m the one who shot bill.

Katie: I don’t–

He swears that what he had with Katie is nothing compared to what he has with Sheila and that he’s committed to her. They kiss. Sheila brings up Taylor’s shooting Bill, saying that it’s a shame Katie doesn’t know what Taylor did, so then she’d know that they’re not the only ones that have done something wrong.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


why are you smiling? Did you know that when you sleep, your nose wrinkles just a little bit? It does not. No, it does. It does. It does. I like it. You’re being ridiculous. Yeah, maybe. Ridiculously happy. Good morning. Yeah, it is. Give me the latest. Have they determined the cause of the flooding? Pierre: A water main

underneath the building burst.

[ Sighs ] Well, I am perfectly aware the pipes are old, but it is inconceivable they should just happen to burst on the very night that valentin and anna come to retrieve my guest. Have they found my son?

Not yet, or ms. Devane or ms. Coe,

for that matter. You do realize that’s not the answer I was looking for? What’s the holdup? A section of the adjoining catacombs collapsed. The area is too unstable. I couldn’t care less how dangerous it is. I want a team down there right now looking for my son.

[ Button clicks ]

[ Sighs ]

I hope I wasn’t too much of a disappointment. I was wondering if you would like to join me for dinner. You actually were very, very good, and I was actually very impressed. But what about that belly and your beard? What about them? Mmm. You ready for another round?

[ Laughs ] Oop. My dear, sweet lucy, where are you?

[ Elevator bell dings ] You have been ignoring my calls, which I do not appreciate. What the hell — tell them I’ll pay triple the rate. Because my son might be trapped in those catacombs. He could be injured. Just find him. Alexis. Victor. Everything okay? Oh, just wonderful. Are you having breakfast with your daughters here? I’d love to see them. You never give up, do you? Well, family is worth every effort. Ah. Well, I’m sorry to disappoint you, but I’m here to see the mayor, not my children. Oh, well, that’s a pity. Will you excuse me? So, how’s everything going with nikolas? Oh, I assume you’re referring to my utter and total disappointment in my nephew? Fathering esme’s child is just… so unseemly? Yes. So I guess things are a little tense at wyndemere? Oh, they would be, but I’ve taken a suite here at the metro court. Not that that has anything to do with a conflict with nikolas. Oh, but why? Oh, I’d have thought my nephew would have told you. He’s handed spoon island over to ava as part of the divorce settlement. Oh, I completely forgot. Britt’s memorial is today, isn’t it? At general hospital? Yeah. We’re honoring her work as co-chief of staff. You know, I think she would really like it. Practicing medicine was really important to her. It showed. How are you holding up? I’m fine. You know, my job right now is to be strong for aunt liesl, and that’s what I’m going to do. I was referring to the willow situation. We haven’t had a chance to talk about that yet. I still can’t believe it. Willow is your daughter? A fact I would never know if that bitch carly had gotten her way.

[ Monitors beeping ] Hey. Morning. Is it morning? It’s always so hard to tell in here. Did you get any sleep? Uh, yeah, a few hours.

[ Inhales sharply ] Oh, I’m sorry. Did I hurt you? No, no, no. I don’t mind the pain. Just promise you won’t let go. I promise. When a cold comes on strong, knock it out with vicks dayquil severe. Just one dose starts to relieve 9 of your worst cold and flu symptoms. To help take you from 9 to none. Power through with vicks dayquil severe. What carly did was unconscionable. First it was nelle, now it’s willow. Mm, to be fair, though, carly didn’t know nelle was your daughter until after she had died. And that makes it okay? No, of course not, and I’m not defending her. Well, I should hope not, ava. Because there is no defense. Of course, saint carly will be forgiven because she was protecting willow from evil me, who no one would ever want as a mother. And now that I’m not a bone marrow match, there’s no foul, no harm. Nina — what? We know that that is what carly is going to say, ava. And everyone, people will buy it. You just wait and see, okay? But I’m going to tell you this. I don’t care if the whole world forgives carly. I’m not, ever. And I am not going to rest until that woman pays for what she did to me. It is so incredible being alone with you. Do you have any idea how hard it is to pretend that we’re just friends? Really? ‘Cause I thought it was easy. Oh, do you, now? Yeah, yeah. I mean, like, I would see you across the room and I would say, “oh, yeah, there’s drew. Whatever.” Okay, that’s how it is, huh?

[ Laughs ] Alright. You know I’m kidding. God. When I would see you across the room when we were at the quartermaines’ for christmas, you have no idea how bad I wanted to come across the room and just kiss you. Yeah? Yeah. Well, if you’re feeling the urge. Thank you… for sticking with me. You had every reason to bail. I’m just really glad you didn’T. I am, too. Any regrets? Except the fact that we can’t go public? Oh, gosh. No. It’s so frustrating, because the aurora-elq merger didn’t even happen, so I don’t know why there’s an issue with insider trading. Yeah. Well, I mean, that helps on some level, I guess, but somebody could still report it to the sec, and if that happens, then…

[ Sighs ] Yeah. Can we talk about something else? Yeah, please. You start. Okay. I love waking up with you. I love waking up with you. Anything else you like doing with me? Mm, I can think of a few things. Yeah? Tell me more. I’d rather show you. How are we doing in here? Willow’s in some pain. Is there any way we can up her meds? Michael, no. I don’t want that. You’re uncomfortable. If I have more, I’ll just want to sleep, and I refuse to waste… we’re — we’re ready to discuss treatment now that we know that nina isn’t a viable bone marrow match. The donor registry could still come through. Right, but we can’t count on that, though. I wouldn’t advise it. So what now? There is another option. Please, let’s hear it. As you know, when bone marrow is taken from a donor, stem cells are harvested, and your body can use those healthy stem cells to fight leukemia. But bone marrow isn’t the only source. You can also find stem cells in cord blood from the umbilical cord and placenta. If you’re talking about taking something away from the baby to help me, the answer is no. Willow, willow, if there is an option that can save both you and our daughter, please just hear the doctor out. I find it hard to believe that nikolas would give up wyndemere. Oh, I don’t know. Perhaps he felt he owed it to ava after sleeping with his son’s ex-girlfriend. Well, when you put it that way. It still seems really out of character for my nephew. I hope you’re happy. I don’t know, am I? You’ve gone too far this time. Too far! I’m sorry. What on earth are you talking about? I was just contacted by the paris authorities. Valentin is dead.

What did you just say? Valentin is dead? Laura: I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. A portion of the paris catacombs collapsed last night. Oh, my god. How? Why? I guess they flooded when a water main broke. Rescue efforts are ongoing, but they have already recovered three bodies. Oh. Oh, my god. And one of them has been identified as valentin.

[ Exhales deeply ] What about — what about anna? Wasn’t she with him? Martin told me that he saw them leave ireland together, yes. So is one of the other bodies…? A woman, but not identified yet. I–I can’t believe — I can’t believe valentin is gone. I know. It’s horrible. It’s just horrible. All we can think about is charlotte. She’s going to be so completely devastated. Oh, my god, and robin… well, we don’t know about that yet. We don’t have confirmation on that. As bleak as it may look, there is still the possibility that anna survived somehow. Enough. Is the blindfold really necessary? Clearly, I’m cooperating. I think it’s best for all of us, you included, if you don’t know where we are. Well, mission accomplished.

[ Knocks rhythmically ] Okay. Come in. Come on. Come on. Get over here! It’s so good to see you safe. And breathing. Yes, well, there’s that. Good to see you, love. Thank you. Hello, can I please take this thing off? I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. Marty, marty, marty, marty! Lucy! Oh, marty! Lucy! Oh! Oh! Oh, are you a sight for weary eyes or what? Okay, take it all in. Take it all in. And then kiss me this instant. If you insist. At last, this nightmare is over. Not quite. There’s still the small matter of my death. I want to stay right here forever. Is that too much to ask?

[ Chuckles ] I got to admit, hiding out sounds pretty damn perfect right now. Oh, yes. I don’t want to go back to the real world. You know? Where willow has cancer and wiley might lose his mom and michael — oh, michael. Michael. I promised michael that I would bring wiley to visit willow. I can’t believe he hasn’t texted me. Michael asked you to bring wiley? That’s promising that things are going to be okay between you two. Yeah. Yeah. I’m lucky michael has a big heart.

[ Cellphone rings ] Okay, it’s sonny. I think there’s probably news about nina. Hello? No. Are they sure?

[ Sighs ] Okay. Thanks for calling. Oh, my god. Nina’s not a match? No.

[ Sighs ] I’m so sorry. Oh, my god, willow is so sick. What if they don’t find a donor in time? I mean, I could strangle her for trying to keep my daughter away from me. I mean, who does she think she is? Nina, stop it. No! Ava, are you saying that I don’t have the right to hate her? Of course you do. But carly is not what’s important right now. I’m not gonna let it go. I’m not. I can’T. I can’t let it go. I know. Because it’s easier to be angry with carly than it is to feel the pain and fear of possibly losing another child, isn’t it? Nina, willow is your daughter and she’s sick. She’s very sick. I can’t save her, ava. I can’T. I won’t do anything to jeopardize our baby’s health. I understand. But the baby won’t be affected in any way other than being delivered by c-section a few weeks early. I know. I agreed to have the baby early to prepare for a marrow transplant. But I was never comfortable with it, and I’m still not. I’d prefer that our daughter be born when she’s ready. But I’ve consulted with dr. Navarro, and she’s confirmed that this late in the pregnancy, the risks to your baby are minimal. 99% of babies born at this stage not only survive, but thrive. And after the birth, when the umbilical cord and placenta are no longer serving a purpose, it’s possible to harvest stem cells from the blood. So what is the success rate of this type of transplant? Nothing’s 100%, but it’s the best chance we have. Because the stem cells would be coming from your baby, he only need about half the hla markers to match, which is less than bone marrow stem cells. That’s incredible. In my medical opinion, this is by far your best option. Will you give it a shot?

Do you know how many times I have imagined this? Not nearly as many as I have. Oh, how I have missed thee. Let you count the ways? I don’t think they have numbers that go that high. Oh, please, you two. Get a room, huh? Mm! Oh, robert. That’s an absolutely brilliant idea. Guess what? We actually have a room. Right this way, mr. Grey. Where you lead, I shall follow.

[ Laughing ] I think it’s sweet. Is there any reason that we needed to bring him here? It was vital. Yeah, otherwise, lucy would have driven us crazy. When you called this morning to say that you brought lucy back, I don’t remember the last time I was so relieved. And you, your life as a fugitive is over. Are we forgetting the fact that the pcpd happens to have a videotape of someone looking a lot like you putting a shot into lucy point blank. Okay, well, lucy’ll just say the shooter wasn’t anna. Charges dropped, right? I don’t know that I’m ready to reveal myself just yet. Not since we have gone to the trouble of trying to convince victor that valentin is dead. Look, any plan that puts him six feet under is fine with me. Yeah, I thought you’d like that. Oh, robert. Just stop. You know, you really need to think about this. There are people other than victor that will be very upset. What, that he’s croaked? Yes. Are you willing to have that on your conscience? Who contacted you, and why did they call you and not me? Laura: Because charlotte is valentin’s next of kin. Oh, poor charlotte. How do they know the body’s valentin? Oh, don’t pretend you care. Of course I care. He’s my son! Who you tried to control by threatening his little girl.

[ Sighs ] Charlotte was never in any danger. Oh, face it. You only value family when it works to your advantage! I need to make some calls. I’m just filled with regret — what we missed out on and what could have been. Will you stop talking in the past tense? Willow is not gone. There is still hope.

I was her hope. And now that I’m not a match — see, I was supposed to be the game changer. My bone marrow was supposed to save her life, and… and then she’d forgive me and she’d love me, and…

[ Voice breaking ] But she doesn’t want to be my daughter, ava. She — she doesn’t want anything to do with me. I’ve been there. I know how much that hurts.

[ Inhales shakily ] I can’t breathe. I just feel like the pain is going through my body with every heartbeat. Now I have to go to the hospital and say goodbye to my cousin when I know my daughter is there fighting for her life, and there’s not a damn thing I can do about it. The very worst part. I won’t survive losing her. I won’T. Oh… so what do you think?

[ Door opens ] Is now a good time? Oh, yeah, of course. Yeah, bring him in. Wiley? I’ll give you some time to consider your options. Okay. Mommy, mommy! Whoa! Incoming. Hi, sweet boy. Wiley, I’ll lift you up. Just remember to be careful, okay? Oh, forget careful. I want the biggest, strongest hug I can get get. I’ve missed you so much. I’ve missed you too.

I want to know exactlywhat the paris police know, and I mean down to the last detail. This — this is unacceptable. My son was never supposed to be harmed, and I want answers, and I want them immediately! Victor seemed really shaken up. Did he ever?

[ Chuckles ] Well done, madam mayor. You were very convincing. Yeah. This better work. Laura and alexis know the truth. We brought them in on it. But what about charlotte? I mean, you can’t be okay with letting her believe that you’re dead. There’s a plan in place. Laura knows exactly what to say to charlotte. And if everything has gone according to plan, then laura should have broken the news to victor about now. I’m sure that our illustrious mayor is spot on the target and will deliver on schedule.

[ Chuckles ] What? You know, sometimes I just can’t believe it. Little laura on the run from frank smith, holding the cassadines at bay with a machine gun. And here we are, the epitome of law and order. Look who’s talking, mr. District attorney. Yeah. My, how the mighty have fallen. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Lucky, you swear to me you’re alright? Mm-hmm? I’m fine. I’m okay. Victor’s goons, they didn’t hurt you, they didn’t touch you in any way? Mnh-mnh. Don’t I feel alright? You… you… you feel… you feel incredible. Still, still, it had to be awful, being victor’s prisoner. Okay, yeah. I mean, I did spend every minute of every hour of every day praying to get out of there, and I did manage to concoct a few escape plans. That’s my girl. I’ll bet you did. But actually, surprisingly, they treated me physically okay. Well, except for the part where I was chained in the basement. I mean, literally chained. I mean, chain chains. I think it was all part of that plan to get anna and valent– I swear to you, I could just kill that smug son of a bitch. I know. Mm. Okay, to tell you the truth, the worst part? The catacombs! I actually had to swim through the catacombs, and it was disgusting and icky. Okay, deep breath.

[ Breathes deeply ] That is all in the past, and I am back and I’m home safe with you. Yeah.

[ Laughs ] Yes, you are. And I thank god for that. But I’m not kidding — watching you get shot — that — that drone footage… I know. You know, rubber bullets, they are really not that rubbery. It’s not a joke. It’s not funny. But they hurt! That was one of the worst moments of my life. My poor baby. I am so sorry you had to go through all of this. Is it is just me, or does this not feel real? It’s real, and I know just how I can convince you it’s so. Oh, I’ll just bet you do.

[ Laughs ] You evil, evil —

[ Laughs ] Ava: Oh, nina. You have to hold on to hope. Is there any? Course there is. As long as willow is alive, so is the chance to reconcile. Well, if she beats this cancer, the possibilities of that are remote. Look at it this way. Your feelings changed as soon as you learned that willow is your daughter, yes? You immediately saw her in a different light. Yeah, but it wasn’t the case for willow, and she’s made that abundantly clear. Still early days, nina. I tried to remember the first time that I saw willow, and I don’t know if it might have been the park or the classroom when she was just ms. Tait and she was giving charlotte a hard time. I couldn’t stand her. Because you thought she was picking on your kid. Yeah. Turns out that she was my kid, too. It makes sense that we didn’t get along. She’s a lot like me, never running from a fight. Willow’s always been really strong. Now it’s your turn. Don’t let her push you away. What do you suggest that I do? You want me to force myself into her hospital room? That might be going a little bit too far. Ava, you’re a really good friend. No giving up. No giving up. That’s more like it. Cream cheese or butter? Both. You had cream cheese

and butter on your bagel? We cut it in half. Yeah. He had one of each. Oh, now, that’s smart, wiley. That way you don’t have to choose. When are you coming home? I’m not exactly sure. But listen, the second the doctors tell me that I can, I’m going to run all the way to the gatehouse. In your hospital gown? I have to. I’d like to see that. Yeah, me, too. Hey, wiley. Here. Let’s give mommy your card that you made her. For me?

[ Laughs ] Aww. Oh. [ Crying ] You didn’t make this. Yes, I did. I — this — these pictures are amazing. I mean, they must have been drawn by a professional artist. Mommy, I’m the artist. Well, um… thank you. Thank you so much. I love it. I am going to put it right here next to my pillow, so that way, it’s the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning.

[ Door closes ] Thank you for bringing wiley. Seeing willow’s face light up when she saw him, you know, that’s everything. Yeah. It obviously means the world to her. Meant the world to me that you asked. Hope this means that we’re okay. We’re — we’re okay. Or at least we will be eventually. What did doctor randolph have to say? It was actually good news. There may be a way to save willow.

I was really relievedto get your call this morning, because I was starting to lose hope. Yes, I know. I was, too. But it is absolutely true, anna, valentin, and lucy, safe and back to the U.S. Good. Alright, so do you think valentin’s supposed death will survive and hold up under victor’s scrutiny? I think so, at least in the short term. And by the way, thank you for your help on that. Well, the invader will print the official story, that the french authorities say that valentin was caught in an underground flood in paris. He’s been declared dead. Excellent. Alright. I should get going. Britt westbourne’s memorial is going to start very soon. I’m so sorry. What happened to her, it’s really tragic. Yes, but she did die a hero. If only all of us could say the same. So we’re good? I got it from here. Thank you. Okay, I-I just — I have to tell you something. You know, it’s true what they say, when you think it’s over, your life flashes before your eyes. Must have taken a while.

[ Gasps, laughs ] No, I — hey! That’s not what I meant. Listen, you’re the definition of ageless beauty. No, I just was thinking that, you know, my lucy, there’s a woman who’s lived one heck of a life. She sure has. And, you know, I love that about you. You live. You live each day to the fullest and then some. Okay, you know what my last conscious thought was before I hit that water? No. I just thought I didn’t want it to be over. And you have a lot to do with that, you know? Do I? I just — I just feel like I have so much I want to do and so much life left to live, and I would kind of like it if you would do it with me, be by my side? Thank you for coming back to me. Anytime. I mean it. I don’t know what I would have done if you hadn’T. Well, you know I would never, ever let victor cassadine get the best to me. Never. Thank you. Have you heard from holly? No, but I don’t expect to, at least not till she finds ethan. And then what about those pieces of the ice princess that victor was looking for? Victor thinks that that was destroyed in the explosion. Oh, god. It’s happening, robert. We are getting closer and closer to victor paying for what he did to luke. Yeah. It’s good to have the gang back together, isn’t it? Oh, yeah. Am I part of the gang? You did okay in paris. Managed to not slow anna down. That’s high praise. How about this? As long as anna trusts you, I will give you the benefit of the doubt, but the second you step out of line… message received. Michael, this is incredible. It’s the answer we’ve been waiting for. I wouldn’t get too excited. Willow hasn’t agreed to it yet. Why wouldn’t she? You’ve seen how protective she is over the baby. I’m just afraid she’s gonna say no. Oh, come on, michael. That’s insane. We have to convince her to do this. I’ll do my best, mom, but ultimately, it’s willow’s decision.

[ Sighs ] Okay, baby, it’s time to come out. We’re ready for you. Wiley’s right. It’s time. Really? We’d better call dr. Navarro. We’re having a baby. Yay!

[ Crying ] I love you. I love you, too. You excited? Yeah? [ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ] Victor, I’m sorry to intrude. Have you been able to find out anything? Ah, not yet. It’s absolutely unfathomable that valentin is gone. We got off to a rocky start, but we ended up in a good place. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry for your loss. Oh, don’t be. Screw these reports. I refuse to accept my son’s dead. Thank you, laura. I will pass along that update. Talk to you soon. What? Victor bought it. Oh.

[ Gasps ] Oh, that’s great. We finally have him off balance. Yeah. So what’s the next part of the plan? We exploit victor’s guilt. Maybe he will admit to something in his grief-stricken state. Ramp up the pressure? Big time. Yeah. Ideas? Don’t worry. I have plenty. Carly, hey. Hey. What is it? Did willow have a setback? No. I mean, it’s just the opposite. I think willow’s gonna be okay. Really? Really. That’s incredible. It’s incredible! I want nikolas out of wyndemere by tomorrow.

[ Chuckles ] No, no, no. This is not a negotiation, demetrius. The house is mine. I want him out. Good. No, no, I don’t — I don’t plan on moving in right away. I’m — I’m needed here, for the time being. I’ll have dr. Randolph paged right away. Thank you. Do you have any apple juice? Wiley. Sorry about that. It’s no problem. You know what? I think we can scrounge up some juice. What does “scrounge” mean? Well, come on, let’s find out.

[ Door opens, closes ] So you really mean it? You’ll go through with the cord blood transplant? Yes. I’m going to trust the doctors that our daughter won’t be hurt. She won’T. She won’T. She’s strong, just like her mother. I can’t wait to meet her. Neither can I. And someday, we get to tell her how she saved her mother’s life.

[ Dramatic music]

Hope: Look, I’m still upset with thomas. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to trust him again.

Steffy: Not personally. But would you be able to trust him with your line?

Hope: Well maybe I have to. You know, maybe hope for the future does need him.

[ Elevator dinging ]

Steffy: What are you suggesting? Have you actually thought this through? Could you really work with thomas again?

Sheila: Finn! Sweetheart, hi!

Finn: Don’t with the “hey sweetheart”. All right, that is not what we’re doing here. Ever.

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

Finn: I wish I could say the same. But who knows? Maybe someday.

Sheila: Okay, really?

Finn: Sure. The day I see you behind bars.

Sheila: I love you so much, bill. I’m yours for life.

[ Door unlatching ]

Katie: The guard said you were up here alone. Does that mean you’ve kicked sheila out? Suppose that was too much to hope for. I’m here because I care about you, bill. And I’m worried about you. More worried than I’ve ever been.

Paris: Back so soon?

Thomas: Yeah, I didn’t want to get caught listening in.

Paris: Any news? Are they letting you design again?

Thomas: It’s too soon to say, but I think there might be a chance.

Paris: Yeah?

Thomas: I mean, I can feel it. I think I might actually be back on hope for the future. Possibly as soon as today.

Steffy: You’re worried about your line. Frankly, I am too. But is it worth lobbying for thomas to return?

Hope: That’s not what I’m doing. I– I’m just trying to look at all the options, not only for the good of my line, but also for the company. Now, if we were to consider letting thomas work remotely so he didn’t have to come on site–

Steffy: On site or not, think about everything thomas has done.

Hope: No, I know, I just– I’m thinking out loud.

Steffy: Look, hope for the future is important to you. But is it worth compromising your values? Because forcing yourself to work with thomas? That’s exactly what it feels like you’d be doing.

Sheila: All right. That was hard for me to hear. But I understand it. Does it upset you to run into me here?

Finn: No, this was no accident. Sheila, I knew you were here. I got word from a friend who spotted you. I dropped what I was doing and I rushed right over.

Sheila: To come see your mother.

Finn: No, to tell you, in no uncertain terms, that you will never have anything to do with me and my family.

Bill: You don’t have to worry about me.

Katie: Well, I must admit it’s a new feeling for me. Being worried about you. I’ve never felt that way before. You’ve always been so self-assured, so… in control of every situation, at least that’s how it appeared. But now, you and sheila. I’m frightened for you, bill. I’m frightened for our son and I am here to do whatever it takes to get through to you. To save you from this unhealthy, dangerous situation. Some people are born to hustle.

Paris: So this could really be happening.

Thomas: Excited?

Paris: Well, I know how much this means to you and I know how sorry you are for what you did. And, come on, there is no line without your designs. Hope’s vision can only go so far and she clearly knows that or she wouldn’t be considering putting you back on.

Thomas: I like the way you think.

Charlie: You are not supposed to be in the building, thomas. Orders from the head honcho.

Thomas: Uh, orders changed. Steffy’s actually–

Charlie: Not that head honcho, the other head honcho. Your father. And until I hear otherwise, you’re not welcome.

Thomas: My name is on the side of the building. I think that gives me certain rights–

Charlie: You know, your name might be on the side of the building, but if you don’t do what I say, your name is gonna be on an orange jumpsuit, mr. Forrester. Now am-scray. Pronto.

Steffy: Think about it. My dad and your mom aren’t together because of what thomas did. He framed brooke. Made it seem that like she called cps on him. You’re thinking that is someone you might want to work with again? Okay, let’s say– let’s say thomas does come back and hope for the future is a huge success. Are you honestly gonna feel good about that?

Hope: You do have a point there.

Steffy: Have you talked to your mom about this? Liam? I mean, we both know how he feels about thomas. Think about what this could do to your marriage.

Hope: No, you’re right. You’re right. I– I can’t believe I was even contemplating this. I mean, I– I can’t, I can’t do that. I can’t work with him. Thank you. Thank you, seriously. And, um, I apologize.

Steffy: For what?

Hope: For just… I don’t know, taking up your time with– with all of my concerns about my line when I know you have much, much bigger things on your plate. I mean, what thomas did, his lies and manipulations, I mean that kind of pales in comparison to the threat of sheila.

Sheila: We have an opportunity here for a second chance thanks to bill spencer, so, please, let’s not waste it.

Finn: A second chance?

Sheila: To start over.

Finn: I don’t want to see you. I don’t want to know you’re alive. You just stay away from me, my wife, and our children. Just stay the hell away. =

Bill: You call it unhealthy, dangerous, but you don’t see when it’s just the two of us. The attention she gives me, the affection.

Katie: What I see is a man standing in front of me who is unrecognizable. You’ve been hurt. You feel rejected. I… I understand that. I know what it’s like to feel lonely, maybe better than anyone. But what I don’t understand, what I don’t get is why you can’t see that you’re being played? You are dollar bill spencer and you’re believing all of sheila’s lies.

Bill: What lies has she told? I know all of her sins and she knows mine.

Katie: This is not you, bill. The bill I know, the man I admire, would realize what she’s doing. He would never allow himself to fall for this con. But you don’t see it. And I don’t understand why. Why can’t you see that sheila carter is playing you?

Introducing astepro allergy.

Charlie: One of us isn’t listening and it’s you. You need to go.

Thomas: Right, I’m just waiting on word from–

Charlie: You want me to call back up? I don’t think you want that because ruth is on duty today and ruth is a rottweiler.

Thomas: Uh, charlie, I– I– just let this slide this one time, okay? Steffy is literally about–

Charlie: I got a situation on the executive floor. I’ve got a combatant that is unwilling to leave–

Thomas: Okay, all right, fine, fine, fine. I get it. I’ll leave, I’ll leave. This is ridiculous though.

Charlie: You know, um, following the rules is never ridiculous, my friend.

Thomas: I didn’t want to tell you this, but actually this is a code 519-B. It’s

[ French accent ] “Top secret,” course is french for “top secret”. Shh. Don’t say anything.

Charlie: That’s not a 519-B.

Steffy: Well, there’s one nice thing we can say about thomas. At least he isn’t as bad as sheila.

Hope: I still can’t believe that she’s free, that a judge would let a woman like that go. How are you feeling about all this? Knowing that she was out there somewhere and that your mom is being blackmailed?

Steffy: Can’t say it’s easy. My mother’s future is at stake. Her freedom. It’s all in sheila and bill’s hands.

Sheila: As much as I wish you had more of an open mind about me and what our relationship could be, I– I understand why you’re hesitant.

Finn: I am not being hesitant, sheila. I’m telling you no. It will never happen.

Sheila: We’ll have to see, won’t we? See, you are my son and I am not gonna give up on you. I never give up. With the right amount of patience and confidence, I can accomplish anything that I put my mind to.

Katie: Sheila doesn’t know how to love. Her heart is a cold, dark place.

Bill: Maybe mine is, too.

Katie: No. No way. You can’t say that to me because I have felt your love. I’ve witnessed it. You can’t sell me that. This is not you. This is not who you are. You’ve been hurt. I hurt you. But for you to turn to a fugitive?

[ Katie sighing ] I’m so sorry if my rejection played any part in this. I’m so sorry. I just never dreamed that you would– I hurt you and I will regret it for the rest of my life. I’m so, so sorry. I have moderate to severe crohn’s disease.

Steffy: You have no idea the nightmare it is being at sheila’s mercy. Sheila’s just walking around. She’s a threat to everyone, but especially my family.

Hope: I– I can only imagine. Having your mother’s freedom in her hands and bill’s?

Steffy: I don’t even know bill anymore. He seems like a completely different person.

Hope: I know. Liam is really worried about him.

Steffy: I don’t want to believe that sheila completely corrupted him. I have to hold on to hope that somehow, some way, someone, is gonna get through to him.

Katie: What does this look like going forward? What’s your plan? How do you envision this future with– with a woman who has tried to kill so many people you care about? I mean, are– are we just gonna invite her to family functions? We’re gonna sit around the thanksgiving table and– and break bread with her? Wh– what happens when– when will gets married? Are you gonna show up at his wedding with this murderer on your arm? How do we explain this to our son?

Bill: “Your father found someone. Someone who cares about him.”

Katie: Someone he will never, ever meet. You know that right? I cannot allow will to be around you if you are with sheila. And that’s not a threat, that’s just a fact. I will protect my son. And I don’t want to keep him away from you, bill. I love the bond that you have. I– I know you love all of your boys, but… but will. Will is yours. You raised him and he loves you so much. And the relationship you have with him, it’s– it’s special and unique and it makes me so happy. I don’t want you to feel attacked, okay? This is not– this is not me attacking you. I know that– that that’s the way you felt since this whole thing started. And you don’t need that anymore. What you need, what you need to hear is that you have people in your life who love you and who care about you. Like me. Please don’t do this. Please, please don’t bring this woman into our lives. Don’t let her anywhere near our son.

Bill: What do you mean, our lives? You turned your back on me, katie. We made a pledge. A pledge that we would raise our son together. That’s what I wanted for us.

Katie: You wanted brooke. That was the problem. I hurt you. And you hurt me. We’ve hurt each other over and over again. I– maybe too many times. But this– this is beyond hurt. This is– this is despair. Knowing that you’re with sheila, it– it’s killing me.

Bill: I’m sorry, katie. I’m sorry for everything I’ve done. For all the times I hurt you. You were right and I was wrong. But does it have to mean the end of us forever? You, me, and will?

Katie: If you’re with sheila, then yes. It is the end of our family. But if she were to go back to prison–

Bill: What are you saying? That you would take me back? If sheila goes to prison, that you would forgive me? That our family could be one again?

[ Door opens and closes ]

Victoria: Thanks, all, for coming. I wanted to meet because I have some deep concerns about Tucker McCall. I know that we have all speculated about his real reason for returning to Genoa City ever since he landed on the Abbott lawn. His interactions around town were intended to make us believe that he wanted to reunite with Ashley and Devon and to exploit the Chancellor-Winters IPO.

Nick: Well, in all fairness, we wanted to do the same thing.

Victoria: Yes, true, but since then, he has completely failed both at his personal and his professional goals.

Nikki: Well, he lost any hope of a reunion with Ashley the minute she boarded that plane for Paris.

Nick: Judging from what I’ve heard from Abby, Devon found out what Tucker was up to and no longer wants anything to do with him. So, he struck out on all three fronts. You’re probably wondering why is he still in town and what his next move is.

Victoria: Yes. I had a conversation with him where he implied that he was looking for another target, which means that we all have to be vigilant about his movements, at least while he’s here.

Victor: Well, now I’ve acquired some information about that man which may throw some light on his motives.

[ Knocking on door ]

Chelsea: Hey.

Billy: Hi. Um, I was just in the neighborhood, thought I’d come by and say hi and, you know, maybe spitball some ideas about the podcast.

Chelsea: Not sure that’s a good idea.

Billy: Okay. Um, if you’re busy, I can — I can come back later.

Chelsea: Actually, I’m thinking the entire podcast might not be a good idea.

Audra: What a waste of time. Okay, why was Phyllis pitching us if she didn’t even have a right to approach us with her son’s project?

Nate: You know, I actually admire her brazenness. And I’m intrigued by Daniel’s gaming platform. If it’s on unsteady ground at Chancellor-Winters, there may be something to pursue.

Audra: I can’t see how. Having been privy to Chancellor-Winters’ legal contracts, I can tell you those things are ironclad. Yeah, I don’t think Daniel can get out of his unless the company decides to release him. You know, and if Lily’s reaction to Phyllis shopping around his idea was any indication, I don’t think that’s gonna happen, which means we’d be wasting time, energy, resources by going after it.

Nate: Mm. Exactly how much access did you have to Chancellor-Winters’ legal contracts, when it comes to projects like Daniel’s?

Daniel: Why would you take it upon yourself to go to Nate to pitch my project to him when I explicitly told you that I wasn’t ready to give up on the deal with Lily and Chancellor-Winters?

Phyllis: Okay, well, you said that that company was putting your project on hold.

Daniel: When I told you that things were shaky over there, I thought I was confiding in my mother and not some opportunist who was gonna go and shop my idea behind my back.

Phyllis: “Opportunist”? Seriously? That’s how you see me? Listen, I just went to Newman Media ’cause, you know, I was doing it as an exploratory thing, you know, to sort of whet their appetite. And I think I did. We need to have alternatives if this thing crashes in. I mean, we need to have a backup plan.

Daniel: Okay, you need to stop talking like this is ours. This is my platform, mine alone. And I’m not gonna trust virtual strangers with my dream project. [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: All right, listen, Daniel, the Newmans are hardly strangers. Nick was your stepfather.

Daniel: Well, nonetheless, I’m wary of getting involved with any Newman-run company. I mean, I got to tell you, the worst part about this is you shared privileged information. I mean, I poured my heart out to you and Dad. I told you how much this project means to me, why I need this so bad, and not just on a professional level. I mean, I can’t just ignore the fact that you have compromised my intellectual property. Now any person or any company that you spoke with about it — they can take my ideas and they can run with them before I ever get Omege Sphere off the ground.

Phyllis: Okay. Okay. I’m sorry. I — I — listen, I only spoke to Nate and — and his COO because, uh, it seems like Chancellor-Winters is shelving this project indefinitely. And I know what that does to you. Listen, I want to see your vision come to fruition. And I didn’t say anything risky to Nate. I didn’t say anything risky. Really. I didn’t even talk to the rest of the Newmans about it.

Daniel: What about Tucker McCall?

Phyllis: What about Tucker McCall? I mean, Tucker just overheard me leaving a message for Nate. Honestly, Tucker — I wouldn’t give him a sip of water if he was in the middle of a desert.

Daniel: Hmm. Okay. So, you only shared information with the man who sold out his cousins to give Newman the opportunity to acquire a majority holding of Chancellor-Winters. That’s great. No, I just never thought that you would go and do this with Nate without asking me first. I — I don’t know. That’s my mistake for thinking the best of you.

Phyllis: What? You don’t mean that. Daniel. Okay, I’m sorry. Oh, my gosh. I overreacted. Give me a break. I care about this project for you. I just want the best for you. That’s all.

Daniel: Fair enough. But if my platform ever needs a new home, which it doesn’t yet, it’s my call who we go with, okay? My call. And if I’m being honest with you, right now, if I had to choose, Tucker looks like the better option instead of Newman Media.

Billy: So, what made you think that the podcast might not be a good idea?

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] I had my therapy session with Dr. Malone. I told her my idea, and she thinks it’s too soon to venture into something so personal and intimate.

Billy: Mm.

Chelsea: Reliving the trauma of my suicide attempt before I’ve finished processing it could be a potential minefield for me.

Billy: Well, I’m sure that was disappointing, but I — I understand what she’s saying.

Chelsea: Well, I was disappointed…until I talked it through with Dr. Malone. She said that it’s actually a really good thing that I wanted to do the podcast. It means I’m focused on my recovery and I am trying to pay it forward and I’m focusing on the future, which is something I couldn’t say a few months ago. So… all of this is about my recovery, right? So [Sighs] How can I be disappointed?

Billy: Hmm.

Victor: Well, now, I asked Michael Baldwin to look into Tucker McCall’s claim that he was a reformed man when he landed in Genoa City.

Victoria: What did he find out?

Victor: Apparently, McCall’s lavish lifestyle — spending money left and right — has put his company under a mountain of debt.

Nikki: How is that possible? The last we knew, he was selling off parts of his company in order to secure capital to buy out Chancellor-Winters’ stock. I mean, you would think he would have some liquid assets available.

Victor: That’s what we all assumed, but then he took out a number of short-term loans. That’s how short he was of his agenda.

Nick: Could just be a desperation move to stabilize his empire.

Victor: But those debts are coming due. So I think what he’s doing — he’s looking for a lucrative company to keep him afloat.

Audra: I told you I didn’t know the details of Daniel’s deal. My insider info was limited to things pertaining directly to the IPO, nothing connected with development or creative planning.

Nate: You never heard anything around the office?

Audra: Uh, I knew Lily and Devon were discussing building an entire gaming division around the idea Daniel was developing. I was also aware that they were preparing a press release towards the end of my tenure with them. Since it never came out, I’m assuming they hit a standstill.

Nate: Hmm. Interesting.

Audra: Why are you asking me all this? Are you thinking of poaching Daniel from Chancellor-Winters? Or stealing his idea?

Nate: No. No, I’m just curious. I would definitely like to know what’s going on at Chancellor-Winters that would make this project so precarious. I’m sure it has something to do with Devon. His inability to collaborate or take chances is probably bringing the entire company to its knees.

Audra: Why do you still care so much about your family’s company? If I remember correctly, you were quite adamant about putting your time there behind you.

Nate: You’re right. Old habits die hard, I guess. You know, it’s too bad you burned your bridge with them, too. It would have been nice to have some inside information.

Audra: We both burned our bridges at Chancellor-Winters. If I hadn’t, I wouldn’t be here.

Nate: You’re right. So I’m glad you did.

Audra: Even if I disagree with you about going after the gaming platform?

Nate: Look, let’s get something straight. I appreciate your input. I’m not afraid of being challenged. I like to hear different points of view so I can make an informed decision.

Audra: And I’m willing to support you 100% if you feel strongly about something, even if our opinions differ. But let me ask you this. If you’re not ready to let go of the idea and if we have no insider information to help us sign Daniel, how would you go about pursuing him?

Nate: I say we sit the guy down and sell him on Newman Media, show him why we’re a better, much more stable, fit for his venture.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Audra: [ Sighs ]

Nate: Everything okay?

Audra: Yeah. Uh, can we finish this discussion in a little bit? I have to go take care of something.

[ Door opens ]

Audra: [ Sighs ]

Billy: Well, that is a great attitude to have, positive and accepting of Dr. Malone’s advice. I remember a time when if someone said no to your idea, you’d fall down the rabbit hole.

Chelsea: Exactly. And that wasn’t that long ago.

Billy: Well, look at how far you’ve come. That’s a good thing.

Chelsea: Thank you.

Billy: [ Chuckles ]

Chelsea: I heard what she had to say, and it’s just not the right time for a podcast.

Billy: You know, uh, I got to say, when you first told me the idea about the podcast, I did share some of Dr. Malone’s concerns. But this is your recovery, this is your process, and I just want to be supportive.

Chelsea: And you have been. You’re more in tune with what’s good or bad for me than you realize. And I want you to know, I really appreciate hearing your honest, unfiltered thoughts. I know I have to run everything by Dr. Malone, but I — I feel like I’m ready to start opening myself up again to feedback, even if it’s negative. So, receiving it from somebody that I know cares about me — that could definitely cushion the blow.

Billy: Well, I appreciate your vote of confidence, although I’m not sure you should be taking my advice. I have screwed up plenty of times, and I’m still playing it by ear.

Chelsea: Aren’t we all?

Phyllis: Daniel, Tucker McCall is not a good guy. He is a snake.

Daniel: Well, at least he’s true to form. And he’s a smart and intuitive businessman. And he made a lot of salient points. He understood that there could be a crossover between our business and our personal lives. Look, I got to tell you, without me even saying anything, he already knew that Lucy and Heather leaving me was a big part of why I created this whole gaming experience and a way for me to heal.

Phyllis: Oh, a way for you to heal. Really? Oh, my goodness. He’s manipulating you. He’s very good at reading people. He’s very good at reading people and then manipulating them to do what he wants.

Daniel: Or another way of looking at it is that he showed some insight. And McCall Unlimited — they have all the resources and infrastructure we need to hit the ground running.

Phyllis: Okay, well, a lot of companies would.

Daniel: Yeah, a lot of companies do, but with McCall, I’d be dealing directly with Tucker — one guy, less hoops to jump through, and more autonomy.

Phyllis: Okay, well, he’d be holding all the hoops. You know this. And if you start working with him and your agenda is different than his agenda, it’s war.

Daniel: I’m not naive. I know his reputation. But I don’t judge people for the worst thing they’ve ever done. And he seemed genuine in his enthusiasm for my vision.

Phyllis: Of course he is — because your vision is brilliant, because you’re brilliant, Daniel. He wants to be a part of that. He is not real. He is not a genuine guy.

Daniel: You know, Omege Sphere is supposed to be about changing people’s lives, right? Giving the opportunity to grow and be better. I think that if Tucker is willing to do that in his own life, then he might be the better alternative than Newman Media. If — if we need one. I’m not ready to jump ship yet. I trust Lily to come through.

Victor: Well, Michael Baldwin is still trying to find out what Tucker McCall’s true motives are. I mean, how is he gonna regain solid footing without selling his entire company? He has no backing, no bank supporting him at the moment. I think the walls are closing in on him.

Nick: There’s something else we should be worried about. Newman Media recently hired Audra Charles. Now, Nate told Victoria that she was working with Tucker to leak information about the Chancellor-Winters IPO. So we need to be very wary of her allegiances. Despite what she’s told us, I wouldn’t put deception past her. We still don’t know the status of her and Tucker’s relationship. They could still be aligned.

Nikki: We need to keep Audra at a distance until we know if we can trust her.

Victor: Well, let’s think about that for a moment. I think it might be to our advantage if she keeps working with Tucker McCall.

Victoria: I think Dad’s right. I think we need to stay on the offense, turn the tables, force him to be on his guard around us.

Nikki: Are you saying you think we should go after McCall Unlimited?

Victoria: I am. And we were looking for a way to expand by taking over Chancellor-Winters. That door has closed, so maybe another one is opening.

Nick: I don’t think that’s the right move at all. If Tucker’s struggling, it could make him an even more dangerous adversary, and we all know what he’s capable of. Tucker could be very close to crumbling on his own. If that’s the case, then we just let him do it. And then Newman Enterprises swoops in, takes up all the pieces as his company falls apart. To blatantly go after him right now seems too risky.

Victor: Or it’s a golden opportunity. His divisions fold nicely into our portfolio.

Nick: If we succeed in taking them over.

Victor: Son, have you ever known me to go into battle without believing I’d win?

Nick: I’m not dismissing the idea, Dad. I just think we need to carefully weigh the pros and cons before we make the move. Vick, we really got to go. We’re late for that meeting with VPs.

Victoria: But I would like to revisit this sooner rather than later. It’s a good opportunity. I wouldn’t want to see it slip away.

[ Door closes ]

Audra: I was surprised to hear from you. Last time we spoke, you wanted nothing to do with me.

Tucker: Yeah. I let my temper get the best of me. I apologize. It’s a part of myself that I really don’t like and I’m trying to evolve past. [ Sighs ] But, um…I miss — I miss our conversations and — and your take on things. And I’m in a bit of a crossroads now, and I could use some of that.

Audra: So, you called me here to entertain you.

Tucker: No. No.

Audra: Then you want some kind of information out of me?

Tucker: [ Chuckles ] When did you get so cynical?

Audra: The day I met you. You know, I’ve known you way too long to fall for this “Let’s have an innocent chat” line, okay? Just get to the point.

Tucker: Uh [Clears throat] I was actually wondering if you knew anything about Newman Media’s pursuit of Daniel Romalotti’s new gaming platform.

Audra: Ah! There it is. You want me to use my connections and resources to collude with you again? I’d think you would have more important things to do, like, um, fly to Paris and beg Ashley for forgiveness or mending the rift with your son. Wait. Now I’m starting to think that everything you told me about coming to Genoa City to repair your relationships with them was absolute B.S.

Tucker: No. No. My desire to make things right with them was and still is sincere.

Audra: Ah.

Tucker: Yeah, but dwelling and sulking are not in my nature, so I need to keep moving forward. And this — this gaming project seems intriguing to me.

Audra: Keep your hands off that. If anyone is gonna snatch it away from Chancellor-Winters, it’s gonna be Newman Media.

Tucker: [ Laughs ] I got to say, the idea of competing with you on it makes it even more interesting. I miss you, Audra. I miss our partnership. And we were good friends, right?

Audra: We were. But you blew it.

Tucker: I know I did. I’m sorry.

Audra: Hey.

Tucker: Can we hit reset?

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Thanks for, uh — for joining me.

Chelsea: Yeah.

Billy: Felt like I needed to get some fresh air, you know, clear my head a little.

Chelsea: Mm. I did, too. I was getting a little antsy in the apartment. And it’s nice to finally want to go out and want to go somewhere.

[ Sighs heavily ]

Billy: It’s a crisp, beautiful day.

Chelsea: It is. So, why do you have to clear your head? Is something on your mind?

Billy: No, nothing in particular, really. I guess I’m just, you know, thinking about you and your desire to find your purpose. That’s not an easy thing to do.

Chelsea: Mm.

Billy: Trust me. I’ve failed at it repeatedly.

Chelsea: Hey, don’t talk about my friend like that.

Billy: [ Chuckles ]

Chelsea: I don’t know. I think the key to finding peace isn’t just [Sighs] figuring out what your purpose is. It’s figuring out what your purpose isn’t. And you are doing that work. You’re narrowing it down. You’re — you’re giving yourself space to explore, you know? I believe that you shouldn’t just choose between things that people offer you. You need to trust yourself and pave your own path.

Billy: That’s a very generous perspective of my life.

Chelsea: [ Laughs ]

Daniel: Lily has been one of the truest and most genuine people that I’ve known for as long as I can remember. If anyone can be trusted, it’s her.

Phyllis: Listen, I really like Lily. I do. And I understand that you have loyalty toward her. I totally get where that comes from. But it just seems to me that her company is imploding. I really think you should get out while you can.

Daniel: Huh. Well, this is just a little bit ironic, don’t you think? I mean, it seems like you’re sitting here telling me that I should cut all ties before they drag me down. You literally just let an old grudge ruin your career and your relationship with Summer.

Phyllis: Okay. Okay. Daniel, everything that I said and I predicted about that situation proved that I was correct.

Daniel: That’s great. That’s fantastic. What did being right get you? [ Sighs ]

[ Door closes ]

Billy: You know, I’ve had a lot of time to think. I don’t have a job. Living alone at the Grand Phoenix, you know, plenty of time to ponder my loneliness, my likes, my dislikes, my joys, despair. I’ve had a lot of sobering moments. But, you know, it’s like I said last time we were hanging out. When I see you, it’s, uh — you know, it’s like a highlight of my day. I guess I’m realizing in all of this that we’ve — we’ve lived parallel lives for quite some time.

Chelsea: Well, that’s kind of a stretch.

[ Both chuckle ]

Billy: Well, maybe my issues haven’t been quite as intensive as yours, but, you know, there are similarities there, both emotionally and mentally. You know, this — this journey that we’re on — I don’t know. I guess that’s maybe why we connect. I guess what I’m saying is I’m very grateful for this friendship.

Nate: Everything okay?

Audra: Yeah, absolutely. Ready to jump back in.

Nate: Whatever you had to do seemed to put a pep in your step.

Audra: Oh, I, uh, had to put some issues from my past to bed. And, um, yeah…I feel good.

Nate: I hope this brush with the past doesn’t involve anything that might take you away from Newman and back to London.

Audra: I’m not looking for a new gig. I like it here. But it’s good to know that I’m valued. And I’m coming around the idea of going after Omege Sphere.

Nate: Really? Great.

Audra: So let’s put our heads together and figure out a way.

[ Knock on door ]

Victor: Baby, you have been awfully quiet since we broached the subject of potentially acquiring Tucker McCall’s company.

Nikki: I’m hoping that Michael will find something that will make a takeover less hostile and risky.

Victor: I’m still in favor of making a move on his company.

Nikki: Well, I can certainly see the upside for us, although Newman Enterprises really isn’t lacking in anything right now. And for Victoria, I know for her it’s more the love of the game, which she inherited from you. What I don’t understand is why you seem to be so invested in this.

Victor: Baby, you just said that Victoria inherited her love of the game from me. Doesn’t that explain everything?

Nikki: Not this time.

Victor: Hmm.

Nikki: It seems like you are specifically going after Tucker McCall. And if that’s the case… I want to know why.

Nick: I am glad that didn’t take long.

Victoria: I know. The VP meetings are much more efficient when we eliminate all the small talk at the beginning.

Nick: Agreed. Thank you, Andy. What looks good to you? I’m starving.

Victoria: Before we worry about what we’re gonna eat, I have to ask you — why are you not sold on this Tucker idea? I mean, the upside is enormous. The reach of McCall Unlimited is international, and having that brand under the Newman umbrella, it would just solidify our position in the global community. Plus, snatching Tucker’s company out from underneath him would be delicious karma, especially after all of his past lies and machinations.

Nick: That’s all true, but something about this doesn’t sit right with me. I can’t shake the feeling that this is all part of a bigger plan that Dad’s put in motion by telling us about it.

Victoria: Well, that wouldn’t be the first time.

Nick: Doesn’t make it alright.

Victoria: Anything else troubling you?

Nick: [ Sighs ] What do you mean?

Victoria: I don’t know. Call it sisterly intuition, but I feel like you’ve been carrying around this personal weight all day. Whatever it is, you can talk to me about it, alright? Because if we have learned anything this past year, it’s that we can trust each other. Tucker. Join us.

Tucker: Hey.

Victoria: Hi.

Daniel: Sorry for stopping in unannounced and for all the confusion with my mother earlier. I just wanted to clear the air. Obviously, she overstepped. Her intentions were good, but she jumped the gun on something that she doesn’t know a lot about and doesn’t have any control over.

Audra: I suspected as much since I remember hearing about your collaboration with Chancellor-Winters when I worked there, and I assume it wasn’t as easy as just placing a bid.

Daniel: You’re right. It’s not. I have an active contract with them, and I have every intention of honoring it. After our encounter, I just felt like I should come here in person and, you know, clarify any misconceptions. But if anything does change in the future, I’d be happy to sit down and discuss possibilities. So, again, sorry for any confusion.

Nate: Uh, hold on a second. If you have a few minutes and there’s an opportunity for some kind of future collaboration, however small the chances are, what’s the harm in letting us sell ourselves to you?

Chelsea: You’ve been thinking about this a lot, haven’t you?

Billy: Does it seem that way? Well, I guess it’s just, you know, we’ve — we’ve both had our fair share of struggles.

Chelsea: Mm.

Billy: And I’m not comparing mine to yours or anything like that, but I know — I know that darkness…

Chelsea: Mm.

Billy: …When you’re trying to find that light or that saving grace. I know that feeling. You know, we’ve both been adrift when it comes to finding a career or something that fulfills us. And don’t take this the wrong way, but we both struck out on love.

Chelsea: Alright, alright, I get it.

Billy: You’re not finding any comfort in what we have in common?

Chelsea: No, please, please carry on.

Billy: I don’t know. You know, it’s just we’ve both fought back against being pigeonholed into these opportunities that other people think are right for us.

Chelsea: Mm-hmm.

Billy: Instead, we search for what makes us feel good, what our passions are. And I think — [ Sighs ] I think that’s what I loved about the podcast, you know? I mean, the back-and-forth was great, of course, but I think it was getting to know each other on that — that deeper level.

Chelsea: I think so, too. You know, when you said the parallel lives thing earlier, I thought you were just trying to make me feel less alone, but now I believe you actually mean it.

Billy: I do. You know, I’m — I’m very proud of all the work that you’ve done and how determined you are. And it makes me feel determined, too.

Chelsea: [ Breathes deeply ]

Nate: The first thing I would say as far as Chancellor-Winters versus Newman goes is that Audra and I have worked at both places and we have found Newman Media to be a much happier business home.

Daniel: Well, I’m sorry you didn’t have a good experience at Chancellor-Winters, but that hasn’t been the case for me.

Audra: You had to have noticed the turmoil there.

Daniel: I am committed to Lily and her company. My word — it means a lot to me. When I make commitments, I do my best to honor them and to not betray the people that believe in me. This project means everything to me. It’s literally my future. It’s not a “sell to the highest bidder” kind of thing. So, I hope that’s something that you can both understand and accept and respect. [ Chuckles ] Again, thank you for your time.

Nate: I am more intrigued than ever.

Audra: If you intend to go after Daniel’s platform, you should know you have some competition waiting for you. Tucker McCall has the same idea.

Nate: And you know that how?

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] You did not have to walk me home, but that was a very chivalrous gesture.

Billy: All good. Um, so, listen. I, uh — I have a few things to take care of today, but maybe we can grab dinner soon.

Chelsea: Sure. Um…I could cook us something.

Billy: Yeah, yeah, we can do that, or we could — could go out, you know, unless it’s too stressful.

Chelsea: No. I don’t think it would be too stressful. I’d like that.

Billy: Okay, good. Some food, some — some fun.

Chelsea: Yeah.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Alright, uh… well, we’ll figure it out.

Chelsea: Sounds great.

Billy: Okay. Have a good one.

Chelsea: You too.

Billy: Okay.

Chelsea: Bye.

Billy: See you.

Victor: But I have other reasons for wanting to acquire McCall Unlimited.

Nikki: Care to fill me in?

Victor: [ Breathes deeply ] I have a feeling that one of the divisions might be appealing to Adam when he comes back.

Nikki: You mean if he comes back. Victor, don’t tell me that’s what this is about — trying to lure Adam back to Newman Enterprises.

Victor: No, no, no, no. As I said, there would be many benefits to acquiring McCall Unlimited.

Nikki: And you realize that your other children are not pawns in your constant battle with Adam, right?

Victor: I know that. Don’t you worry, okay? I’ve thought this through. I think this will be good for everyone concerned. But when Adam realizes that we have McCall Unlimited in our portfolio, that would give him a very strong reason to stay.

Tucker: A, uh — [ Laughs ] an invitation from the Newman siblings? That’s…a suspicious surprise.

Victoria: No, we — we just wanted to talk.

Tucker: Oh, really? What about?

Nick: Your future plans.

Tucker: Yeah, I figured. Say, did you fill him in on the nasty rumor you started that I’m coming after your company?

Victoria: Oh, that? Uh, no, I — I hadn’t given it a second thought since we spoke, since the idea of you being successful at it is dubious at best.

Tucker: What, then?

Victoria: Oh, we just wanted to let you know that there’s another nasty rumor floating around.

Tucker: Oh. Do tell.

Nick: Your company’s in trouble.

Tucker: Well, you know you’re on top when people feel the need to start gossiping about you. But, uh, I don’t believe rumors. Neither should you.

Next week on “The Young And The Restless”…

Nate: Someone else in my place might wonder if you’re working Tucker…or me… or both of us.

Phyllis: I’m going out of town. Um, I just wanted to let you know.

Summer: Okay. Where — where are you going?

Phyllis: I’m going to meet with Heather. [ Sighs ] I’m gonna convince her to take your brother back.

Kyle: I found something interesting, something I think you can use to get Adam out of the company.

Interview with Warren Christie, Amy Acker and Emily Fox

TV Interview!

Warren Christie, Amy Acker and Emily Fox of "The Watchful Eye" on Freeform

Interview with Warren Christie, Amy Acker and Emily Fox of “The Watchful Eye” on Freeform by Suzanne 1/19/23

I really enjoyed speaking to these three stars. I’ve been a huge fan of Warren’s since he starred in “Alphas” on Syfy, and Amy Acker since she played Fred on “Angel” years ago. They have been in many great shows, as I told them in this interview. Showrunner Emily Fox is also quite successful and has done some wonderful shows. Not only that, but I watched 8 episodes of this show and really enjoyed it. I hope you will, too!



"The Watchful Eye" on Freeform

Freeform Picks Up New Drama ‘The Watchful Eye’ (FKA ‘The Nanny’) to Series From Ryan Seacrest Productions

Mariel Molino Leads Ensemble Cast

Freeform has ordered new scripted series, “The Watchful Eye,” from Ryan Seacrest Productions. It is created by Julie Durk (“Grace and Frankie”), who also serves as consultant. Emily Fox (“Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist”) is showrunner and executive producer. Ryan Seacrest Productions’ Ryan Seacrest, Nina Wass, Andrea Shay and Jeffrey Reiner serve as executive producers with Reiner (“Dirty John”) directing the pilot. The series is produced by ABC Signature.

“The Watchful Eye” follows Elena Santos, a young woman with a complicated past, maneuvering her way into working as a live-in nanny for an affluent family in Manhattan. She quickly learns that everyone in the mysterious building has deadly secrets and ulterior motives. What they don’t know, however, is that Elena has some shocking secrets of her own.

“I’m incredibly excited about this series because it presents a contemporary twist on the classic mystery and thriller genre,” stated Jamila Hunter, EVP of Programming and Development for Freeform. “Julie, Emily and everyone on the team have created a surprising world of haves and have-nots that’s perfect for Freeform’s audience.”

“We are so excited to be working with our partners at Freeform and ABC Signature on ‘The Watchful Eye,’ an updated twist on a classic Hitchcockian thriller featuring an empowered female lead who’s got an ax to grind,” say Fox, Wass and Shay. “An elegant New York City apartment building called The Greybourne provides a backdrop where nothing is as it seems and where the palace intrigue has an undercurrent of terror. Elena Santos is very much a force to be reckoned with, and the Manhattan power players who underestimate her may soon realize they’ve met their match. In this day and age, who doesn’t secretly long to eat the rich?”

“The Watchful Eye” cast is led by Mariel Molino (“Promised Land”) who plays Elena Santos, a bright, savvy young woman hired as the live-in nanny to a wealthy widower and his young son. When Elena moves into The Greybourne, a landmark Manhattan apartment building, she quickly learns about the complex politics among its wealthy inhabitants and a history riddled with mystery and tragedy. Luckily, Elena is more than equipped to handle anything that comes her way on her own terms. Warren Christie (“The Village”) plays Matthew, a self-made architect dealing with grief and confusion over his wife’s death and its impact on his young son. Kelly Bishop (“Gilmore Girls”) portrays Mrs. Ivey, a lifelong resident of The Greybourne who rules the roost and is accustomed to getting her way through a potent combination of wealth, power and sheer force of will.

Additional cast includes Amy Acker (“The Gifted”) as Tory, a woman who instantly dislikes the fresh-faced, eager young nanny hired by her handsome brother-in-law, Matthew. Jon Ecker (“Firefly Lane”) stars as Scott, Elena’s sharp and cunning boyfriend who has helped arrange for Elena to get a live-in job at The Greybourne. Lex Lumpkin (“All That”) portrays Elliott, a precocious teenager who lives in The Greybourne and strikes up an instant friendship with Elena. Henry Joseph Samiri (“The Bold and the Beautiful”) as Jasper, Matthew’s son, an intelligent but withdrawn child still reeling from the recent death of his mother. Aliyah Royale (“The Walking Dead: The World Beyond”) rounds out the cast as Ginny, who works alongside Elena as a nanny and is one of the few people who can get past her new friend’s tough outer shell.

won again. Are you sure you’re not letting me win? Why would I do that? I, uh, I don’t know. You know, my mom just went off the deep end and my stepmom just died, and I feel terrible about both those things. I’m not that good a person. Hmm. I always play to win. Oh, okay. Well then I will accept my victory and thank you for keeping me company all day.

I was happy to be here. You sure I saw you checking your phone every a few minutes? I was not. Hmm.

Okay. Maybe I thought I’d hear from Johnny. I am sure he is just busy with family stuff.

Are you kidding me right now, Courtney? Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to interrupt this special moment. Look, this is not what you think. Okay? Okay. So my brother and my girlfriend weren’t just about to cheat on me. No, Allie, take it easy. Okay. It was just a friendly hug. Well, this is the second time that I’ve caught the two of you getting cozy together.

Obviously something is going on and I would like to know.

Why do I let Chanel’s mom get to me time? Pauline is a formidable woman. All right. Just try not to let her get to you. Enjoy breakfast. Not only has she ruined my entire life, but she’s also ruined my pancakes. They’re ice cold. All right, let me warm up for you. No, that’s okay. I’m not even hungry. I mean, how can I eat after I have to deal with both Nicole and Paul in the same day?

Yeah. I’m really sorry. Things got outta hand between you and Nicole,

whatever. At least now she knows that you’ve moved on and hopefully she realizes that it’s time for her to do.

Nicole, what you doing? Whatcha doing me right?

Hey, are you home? I was hoping I could stop by really? I thought you said you couldn’t stand being in the same room as me. Well, I just had a little run in with Stephan and got ugly. Did he hurt you? No. No, nothing like that. I just just wanna talk. Is that all right? Of course. I’ll be waiting. Okay. See you soon.

Stephan, I’m gonna get you deprogrammed, whether you like it or not.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Hey. Hey. Thanks for bringing this by. Yeah. Special batch of chatter for you and the family. I’ll make sure Dad eats some. Yeah. Is uh, is he around? No, him and Steph just went to St. Luke’s to make arrangements, but they should be home soon. Okay. Oh, hi, I, I’m, uh, Roman Brady. I’m, uh, Tripp’s uncle. Oh, yeah. I’m, I’m sorry.

Uh, uncle Roman. This is Wendy Shin. Hi. Nice to meet. Uh, I’m so sorry to hear about your wife and your sister. Well, thank you. If I may, I met Dr. Johnson in Hong Kong and she was a tonal badass that she was. Yes. Uh, So what’s with Shiner kid? Uh, it’s just a weird thing at the park, but it’s all good now.

All right. Look, I’m telling you, there’s nothing going on between the two of us. And why are you here? I came over to see Wendy. Okay. And since she wasn’t here, you decided to throw yourself at Chanel. We were just talking and hugging. Do not forget that I, I wouldn’t cheat on you. Oh, no you wouldn’t because you admitted to me last night that you and Johnny almost kissed.

So how far would you have gone today? All right. Stop it, Allie. Yeah. I am glad that I stopped it by walking through that door because if I hadn’t, the two of you might be having sex on that couch right now.

Can I at least heat that up for you? That’s just gonna make them rubbery. Let me get you something else. How about my family’s famous clams Chowder for breakfast. Considering an early lunch, I mean, it will warm your soul and rain. Now your soul needs to warming up. It’s on the house. All right. You can’t say no.

I can never say no to you.

Well, I, I, I, I, I, I’ve, I don’t think this is a good idea. Ah, why the hell not? Well, for one thing, you’re still upset about Eric. Ah, please. I don’t care about Eric, and obviously he doesn’t care about me. He and Sloan are probably somewhere off doing it, like rabbits. This is what I’m talking about. Well, I’m talking about how slow, I’m like to rub this in my face, so I’m gonna rub this in her face.

I don’t think Sloane would care if you and I slept together. Hi. Now rub it near it’s face. Yeah, the whole goose scanner thing. Wait a minute, IOR. Oh, let’s just do this.

Okay. You sure you don’t want me to stick around? At least until your family comes back, I will be fine. Okay. You are officially relieved of your babysitting duties. I wasn’t babysitting. I actually like hanging out with you, even though I do have to occasionally throw the controller. You swear you aren’t letting me win.

I told you I’m not that generous. You on the other hand, you are a good guy. You did something nice earlier. What did I do? Oh, and Roman asked about your eye. You didn’t rat out Johnny. Yeah. Well my family’s going through enough. Like I said, he apologized, so we’re cool still. You probably saved him a lecturer.

Two from his grandfather. You didn’t have to. Okay. Yes, you’re right. I’m a hero. So you are gonna be sticking around Salem for a while? Yeah, I’m not sure. At least through the funeral. Well, if, uh, you ever need to talk or crush someone at two k. Feel free to hit me up. Thanks, Wendy. I appreciate it.

Will you stop overreacting right before you just walked in here? I was telling Chanel that I’m happy you two were together and I was telling Johnny I was happy he found Wendy. What you saw was just us wishing each other. Let’s just chill. Okay. Okay. Well maybe I could just chill. If the two of you hadn’t almost kissed last night, it was a dumb, impulsive moment and it will never happen again.

Why would I believe that? Because it’s the truth. All right, well, you stop. You’re getting yourself all worked up over nothing and all this jealousy you’re starting to sound like, like Mom, were you just about to say, I sound like Mom. I. You take that back right now. Why would I, you are acting exactly like her.

You’re jumping to conclusions, you’re throwing a tantrum. You’re making it all about you. Okay. Well, you know what? I think that you’re acting like your dad. How, uh, EJ makes moves on women who are already taken, like Aunt Bell or mom when she was race. Oh, all right. I am not making moves. Of course you are.

And just like your father, you don’t care about the relationships that you ruin as long as you get what you.

Nicole, Nicole, stop. Stop. Stop, stop, stop. What is the problem? A New year’s you avan us getting together. Yes. And you put the breaks on. Remember, you said you wanted to stop making impulsive decisions. Okay, well, it’s been almost a month, so there’s nothing impulsive about it. You made it very clear. That you weren’t ready.

Mm-hmm. . But now I am ready. Oh. Looks like you are too. . What? What? Why are you doing this? Hey, Jay, don’t you want me ? Of course. Of course I do.

Then why do you keep pulling? Because I don’t think you are in the right mind to make an informed decision. Why not? Common parlance my drunk is a skunk.

Hi, come on in. Thanks. Sorry, I’m kind of sweaty. I was, I was at the gym working off my frustration over getting fired. DJJ fired you? Yeah. Came by Bright and nerdly to do it in person. I guess that’s not surprising, but I’m sorry. Thank you. So what happened with Stefan? Well, I was at the Demir state, um, trying to convince Stefan yet again to get Deprogrammed.

You don’t give up to. No, it’s not in my nature. I mean, I tried to remind him of, you know, the love that we used to share, but he just doubled down and was calling me vicious names, telling me I’m a terrible person. Mm-hmm. . I hate that he’s doing that too. Thank you. Why you telling me all this? Gabby? Is it so you can yell at me again for brainwashing, Stephan, for turning him against you?

No, Lee, that’s not why I’m here. And why are you.

I am here to say that you’re right when it comes to Stephan, I’m wasting my time and the person that I should be with is you.

What did you say? You heard me? Okay, then I’m going off the rails and hurry. You don’t get to criticize my father when yours is in prison for kidnapping mom. Oh, you really think my dad has committed more crimes than yours? Oh, you better watch out Chanel if all starts to feel too insecure, she might have you kidnapped little.

Okay. That is enough. Stop it. Both of you. Did you hear what he just said to me? I heard what you both said, Johnny. And it’s time for you to go. Yeah, it’s fine by. If we tell Wendy that I stop by. Yeah. Okay. And I’ll make sure to tell her that when she wasn’t here. You hooked up with my girlfriend instead.



mm. Seriously? You, you’ve never had cle char. It’s good. I mean, it’s substantial.

Are you saying you don’t like our famous chowder? Uh, no. I’m just saying that, um, warm milk and clams not really my thing. Okay. First of all, it’s just heavy cream. It sure is. Okay. You know what? I had completely judged your character. I don’t think we can be friends after this. Look, I’m not saying it’s not good chowder, you know, I’m just, I’m a little bit more of a chicken noodle.

Traditionalist chicken noodle. That’s it. Out out. I want you, Adam, you’re kicking me out into Yes, you can take your blasphemy over to Julie’s place and you and Paul. Y’all can enjoy your spongy little noodles and chicken cubes. I didn’t realize you took your chowder so seriously. Oh my God. Are you kidding me?

That is a famous Brady recipe. And if my father heard you despairing his moss chowder, oh my God. It’s like putting the knife to his heart. Well then I’m so glad that you’re gonna keep this between the two of us because I would hate for your dad to know that. Um, I actually kind of hate it. Yeah, you certain.

Good morning to hear that.

Excuse me. There is nothing skunky about me. No, but you are inebriated. Inebriated as in chimpanzee. I don’t get it. I’m not drunk. It’s a skunk and a drunk. With a monk. I understand. Okay. Like I can’t be drunk. I just had one measly mimosa and maybe teeny tiny champagne chaser. Tiny. And nevertheless, it has hit you pretty hard.

Oh, stop. I can find, see. Perfectly fine. Oh, oh God. Oh, oh, oh. The room. Spinning. I’m gonna be sick, Nicole.

I have to say, this is very surprising. The last time I saw you, you dumped a bucket of ice on my head. I was upset clearly. I mean, can you blame me after everything that you did? I suppose not, but Gabby, that doesn’t explain the sudden 180

after I calmed down, I, I thought about what you said and I wouldn’t have even bothered you if I didn’t feel like there was some sort of passion between us.

So you admitted.

I admit that I, I feel emotions around you. I feel them very strongly. You are right. You are right about a lot of things. Like what? You and I are the same. We, we both go to drastic measures for what we want and. Stephan would never love me the way that you do and that you and I belong together. You didn’t want to hear it.

I know, but that was then, and I mean, after everything that happened today, I, I can’t deny it. Gabby, what are you saying? I’m saying I need to give up on stuff and, and really give our marriage a try.

Nicole, how are we doing in there? You okay?

Oh, don’t, don’t look at me. Why? Because this is so embarrassing. There’s no reason to be embarrassed. Ah, yes. I, I practically jumps you in. You turn me down, and then I puked like a freshman at a frat party.

I’m flattered, you know, flatter that I threw up. I’m flatter that you wanted to be with me. Trust me, it was hard to turn you down and why did. Because you were too drunk to know what you were doing. Ah, this doesn’t make any sense. I mean, I only had a, a drink and a half. I mean, everyone knows I can hold my liquor.

You said you didn’t have breakfast. Yeah, but still I’m Nicole freaking walker, the goat. Even restaurants won’t serve me bottomless mimosas because I put ’em out of business. . Hey, even LeBron James has an off day. Yeah.

Unless, unless, unless something was wrong with the champagne. Maybe, but I had some and I’m fine.

And what happened to me,

Sloane? This is my dad. Dad, this is Sloane Peterson. Mr. Brady, it’s a pleasure to meet you, and I’m very sorry to hear about what happened to your wife. Thank you. I appreciate that. Even if. Do hate my chatter. Oh, first of all, let me just say I hate all Clem chowder. I’m not sure that’s helping. Uh, anyway, I’m extremely grateful for the hospitality, and I hope you don’t hold us against me.

Of course. Now what I do hold against you is the way you’ve gone after Paulina Price and retire. Dad is married to a carver who happens to be my best friend, which makes her family. There is nothing more important than me than family. I feel the same way, which is why I won’t stop until Paul and Chanel have both paid for their crimes.

They took my parents from me, and I’m not gonna stop until they’ve both been brought to Justice.

Wendy, I was not hooking up with Chanel. Allie just completely misread. You don’t need to explain yourself to me. You can do whatever you want.

You know, you’re right. You’re nothing like mom. Thanks, lassis.

Where are you going? To the office to do some work? Mm-hmm. I don’t think so. We are gonna talk this out. I’m not really in the mood. I thought you said you came home to work things out with me. Yeah. And then I saw you in my brother’s arms. I told you it was totally innocent. You knew that. I was really upset about the two of you Almost kissing last night.

Why would you think it’s okay to have him over and give him a hug for the ump? Empty time? Johnny and I are just friends. You have nothing to worry about. Yeah. That’s what. Hold up. You went to see Alex.

I missed you so much. I missed you too. Are are, are you serious about this? About giving our marriage a try? I’m gonna show you how serious I am.

The vows that we took to love each other for better or worse, I don’t take them lightly. So you’re giving up on Stephan? He gave up on, on me a long time ago. I just couldn’t see it. So am I The consolation of prize probably. I I loved you before Stephan came back, but yes, I had a hard time accepting it.

But the Stephen. That I used to love is gone for good, and I believe you. I believe that we can get back to where we used to be. I can’t believe this. How do we start? What’s our first step? Well, we never did consummate our marriage.

You wanna consummate our marriage. Now, I wanna feel close to you again. Every time we made love, we had this deep connection. Absolutely. And if we could get to being close like that again, it, it could go towards building our relationship. Don’t you agree? Y Yeah. I mean, This is incredible. Well then why are you hesitating, Gabby?

I, I, I just wanna make sure this is what you really want. This is what I want. I, I wanna make this a real marriage. I wanna commit. I’m ready to commit. Great. Well, you think you could do a little favor for me first? Anything. Well, you mentioned you went to the gym, so maybe you could take a shower first.

Yeah, I, I can handle that and uh, in the meantime I’ll get undressed please. Leo, you have no idea how you meet.

There has to be something in here that will get rough, and I know your loyalty is with Aen, his family, but this is a complicated situation. I’m not saying. Lost her mother because Chanel pushed her off a building. From what I understand, that was self-defense. Well, Chanel and her mother are lying about that.

ARD didn’t think so well. I believe that the American judicial system will come to a different conclusion. Yeah. Hebe told me that you are suing for wrongful death. That’s right. And I expect to be vindicated. Yeah. My advice would. Drop to vendetta and move on. Dad still has every right to pursue the case.

The hell she does, all she’s doing is causing more pain. Haven’t we all had enough of that? You know what I, um, I really don’t wanna get between the two of you and cause more attention, especially at a time like this. I think I’d better just go some we’re in the middle of a lunch date.

This is a client. It shouldn’t take long, but maybe it will give you and your dad a time to sort through some things.

Can’t you just give Sloan a chance? What? You two getting serious? No, but I like. What about Nicole? Nicole? Me. You’re over. All right, we moved on. I’ve heard that before. You sure this time?

Tea and toast. The over indulges Best friend. Oh, thank God. I thought you were gonna bring me more. Your mimas yucky hangover here. Hey, that cure works. Yeah. Even if it is a little bit disgusting. Hopefully this makes you feel better. No, it couldn’t make me feel worse. That’s the spirit.

Thank you. My pleasure. No, I mean. Thank you for being a gentleman earlier.

I can’t believe it means to fool myself. You didn’t. I did, but I, I want you to know ej, that not everything I said and did was because the alcohol.

I am sick of pining over.

Eric’s not the same person. I used to love Anna to move on, and if you’re willing,

I’d like to move on with you.

Wendy. Hey, I told you I don’t need you to explain anything. Okay. It’s not like we’re a couple. Yeah. Well, yeah, but I mean, we’re, we’re what we kissed on New Year’s Eve. We haven’t even gone on a date yet. So if you’re hooking up Chanel, I mean, that’s totally, I told you I’m not hooking up with Chanel, but Allie said this.

Yeah, Allie said what she said because she’s in a fight with Chan. She wanted to mess things up with you to hurt me, so there’s nothing going on with you and Chanel.

Look, I wanna be honest with you, okay, last night at the hospital. I almost kissed her. Okay, so, so let me get this straight. You were upset with me for hanging out with Johnny while at the same time you were being consoled by Alex Kikis, one of the biggest players in town. You and Johnny were married. Okay.

And you had sex with Alex? We both did. Well, maybe you decided that you didn’t wanna share ’em after all. Maybe you wanted to turn our threesome into a twosome. I had Henry with me. We were just. Yeah, like Johnny and I were just talking and I’m sorry. No offense, but you sound like a total hypocrite. I never had feelings for Alex.

Okay. I know that. I’m just trying to make a point, which is I trust you Horton, so why the hell can’t you trust me? I mean, I’m not the one who’s cheated before, before.

That was really unfair. Yes, I cheated on trip, but I cheated on trip with you because you and I are meant to be together. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have said that. No, you shouldn’t have. But I also shouldn’t have accused you of cheating with John.

Look, um, emotions are clearly running high right now and, um, maybe we should just stop before we say something that will regret, or something else that will regret. Yeah, so. Maybe we should take a little time apart.

Yeah, I think we could both use some space. I can go to my grandpa’s. No, no. Your family’s dealing with a lot right now. I’ll, uh, go pack a bag and I’ll go stand my. Okay, thanks.

You almost kissed your sister’s girl. . What does that mean? It means that we probably would have, if Fally didn’t walk in, oh gee, I wonder why your sister’s mad at you. It’s not like that. Okay. I was upset about my grandma Marlena Chanel was just comforting me. Oh. With her lips? No, I. I was the one who instigated it.

Right. Fuck. She used to be my wife. She used to be my wife. Okay. And in that moment, I, I, I don’t know. I guess I, I just, I needed to feel close to someone. Well, do you still have feelings for her? No. I mean, I’ll always care about her, you know, and if I’m being honest with myself, There’s probably something a little unresolved between us, but that doesn’t matter.

Seems like it does. No, it doesn’t because Chanel is committed to Allie and I, I really like you.

You do.

And if it’s all right with you, I’d really like to take you on that date. What do you say?

So what exactly it is moving on with me in town?

Do I really have to explain it to you? I mean, are we talking about a relationship or just a good old fashioned roll in the hay?

I dunno. Can we just figure it out as we go along? Of course. And for the record, I’m game fryer.

Because I have a feeling we’ve been down this road many times and to make a full on commitment, I dunno, it just would be a bit premature. Yeah, it was gonna say unwise . Agreed. So perhaps when you are feeling better, You and I can go out to dinner on a proper date, just the two of us. And see how things go from there.

I would love that. And it’s a date? Yes.

And would you just trust. When it comes to me and Nicole, the ship is sailed, doors has left the stable. Okay. Pick your cliche. It’s over. Well, I’m really sorry to hear that. No, no, no. Don’t be all right. It’s over. It’s time for us to both move on. Okay, Eric, but really, phone sit in the middle of an ugly battle with Paul Le and Chanel.

You know what? I really don’t want to talk about my love life. Right. How you doing? I’m hanging in. Well, how are things going? I mean, where are you at with the funeral arrangements? Well, I told you Kate didn’t want any fuss. Okay, so what about Aunt Kaylin and mom? Well, you can talk to John and Steven from what I understand.

There’s nothing more to do at this moment. I’m back. Hope I gave you guys enough time. Sore through things, definitely, and I will bring you out something less offensive to track

Well, don’t I just make fabulous first impressions.

I guess he wouldn’t risk contacting Ralph on his regular phone. He must have a burner around here somewhere.

I, let me see. Oh, he’s called this number a bunch of times. Must be.

Oh, hi. Yeah. Hi, Dr. Rolf. This is Gabby Hernandez. No, no, no. Do not hang up on me. I need your help and I’m not taking,

I’d really like to go out with you. You would. That’s great. That’s great. I’d really like to go out with. , but your life seems really complicated right now. I told you I’m not interested in Chanel. Not, no, it’s, it’s more than that. You’ve just lost both your grandmothers, you’ve got all this drama going on with your sister.

You, you should really be with your family right now. Okay. All right. Maybe you’re right. Maybe it’s not the ideal time to start a relationship, but is it ever maybe. I just, I wanna be sure we’re both in it for the right reasons.

Okay? Okay. How about this? All right, we both take some time. We, we, we, we take our time. I get to be with my family. We let the alley and Chanel thing cool off and then things are a little more settled down. I want to take you on that date.

Okay. I can live with that. Good. So we’re good? Yeah, we’re good.

Hey. Hey. So, uh, I was thinking that maybe you should. Take the next few days off from work too. Really? Yeah. You’re dealing with a lot with your grandma and your family needs you and you need them. Okay. If you’re sure we have enough coverage, I’m sure. Okay, thanks.

Well, uh, text me if you need anything. I.

Now this is more like it. I’m glad you’re finally satisfied. Hmm. I wouldn’t say satisfied. Okay. What’s the problem? Oh, there’s no problem. But, um, if you’d like to satisfy me, maybe you can come back to my place later tonight. That is, if you’re up for the challenge, always.

If you want, I can bring some.

Trust me, Rolf, if you do what I ask, you’ll be back in the good grace for Damaris and more importantly, your ass stays out of prison. Okay, so we have deal. Good. Now get to Salem asap.

Look, like I said, Johnny, this really isn’t a good time. Yeah. Um, yeah. Okay. Uh, sorry to bother you. I will, um, see if I can track down Wendy at Damara. Fuck Chanel. If you want me to go, I’ll go. Okay. But I can see that you’re upset about something and we’re friends, right? We’re good friends, so if you wanna talk, we can talk about whatever bothering you.

Wouldn’t happen to have anything to do with my sister, would it? Maybe. So you guys didn’t patch things up? No, no. Last night when I got home, Alex was here with Allie and she, uh, she wanted to have another threesome.

Hey, how’s it going?

Sorry, am am I interrupting? I just thought that you know, Eric might want his phone back. I’m not surprised you left it at my place. We made quite the mess, didn’t we? I found it. Loft in a tangle of clothes and sheaths on my bed.

Woo. Hello? Is he around that guy? Nicole, you know what Sloan? You really are pathetic.

Hope you enjoy your little drinky j. Because after a few doses of this, you’re gonna start acting pretty strangely. In fact, your judgment’s gonna be so impaired that the Derion board will have no choice to remove you and I, for one can not. Wait,

I am so sorry that I had to do that, but plus me someday soon. You’re gonna thank me.

I thought it was grateful to the mountain, but well turns out here, the mountain

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

I am pathetic. Yeah. Because instead of handing Eric his phone discreetly you decided to broadcast it to not only me, but to every sale mite within a five mile radius. That you are a pathetic slut. Okay. What? Oh, I’m pathetic for enjoying and not feeling ashamed about my sex life. . Meanwhile, you’re out here throwing around very hurtful, antiquated slurs against women, real progressive.

Should I just go and call the town crier and tell ’em about my transgressions? You know what? I don’t care who you sleep with or how many who’s there are. Just have some class. Keep it to yourself. All right. Why don’t we just, you care very much about who I sleep with, Nicole. Oh, so much. Because this particular who happens to be you’re very handsome ex-husband.

The real question you should be asking yourself is why do I care? So Nicole, why is it because you still have the hots for Eric. Meanwhile, you’re out here drooling and panting over EJ Damira.

Oh, what did you have for breakfast? A bowling ball. Did you pull the champagne brother?

What the hell is going on here?

I just, what the hell do you think you’re doing it here? Easy. Just the person I wanted. Save your lies. It’s obvious what you’re doing in here. It. If you’re transparent, Gabby, I am. Yes. But I guarantee you Stefan will never submit to Deprogramming and you desperately sneaking into his home. Into my home to persuade him.

Otherwise will only result in you being charged with breaking an entry. I don’t think I broke anything regardless. Stephan’s feelings toward you were at one point ams, but that was a long time ago. And the sooner you give up on. Degrading enterprise That fine, fine. You got me. That’s exactly why I’m here.

Although I hardly think true love is a degrading enterprise. But what would you know about love more than you? I assure you. I also happen to be very well versed in the art of loathing present company included, and that’s all My brother feels toward you. Now, as one might say, I know it when I see it, and with Stephan, I see it.

He loaves you. I’m very, uh, aware of what he thinks. He feels about me. Thank you very much. You know, I don’t have to prove it to you or anybody else for that matter. What I know to be true and. A deep down beneath Wolf’s mind control manipulations. Your brother Stephan still loves me and we’re gonna be together again.

He’s gonna be mine forever.

bra, the performance. Well, you know what? Now if you excuse me, I’m gonna see myself out too. I don’t think. I’m not gonna have you wandering around these grounds unfettered and flip toward me gladly. As soon as I personally see you out the door myself. And we will be going through the front door, Joe.

Yeah, no, that sounds, that sounds lovely. I think she’d like that.

No. I can’t believe that we’re planning our funeral now. Yeah. Surreal. I know, dad. Thank you. I love you too.

Oh, oh. Bella, I was so sorry to hear about your mom. Thank you, Paulina. And I just spoke to my sister, Tammy earlier. Your your mom’s old college roommate. She’s devastated like all of us. She sends a love to you and to all your family.

What? You don’t have a gym in this mazz. Sadly we do not. Victor thinks exercise is a waste of time. He doesn’t like to break a sweat. I see. So what’s up? Surely you didn’t come by here to Just to watch me pump iron. Mm-hmm. Sorry for the blow. True ego, but no, I did not. Besides how would I even know that’s what you’d be doing?

Good point. Yeah. I came to drop by Henry off to see his uncle Will. But I’m actually really glad that I ran into you. I wanted to apologize. Apologize. For what happened last night at my place.

Another threesome. Oof. Yes. And uh, Allie wanted it to happen again. Yes, but the only reason she said that was because she wanted to get back at me because we almost. She was so upset with me, and then I tried to talk to her about it again, and then we got into this huge fight.

Oh, sweetheart, you don’t know anything about me or about me and ej. All right. Okay. All right. No, you’re right. I don’t, but as previously established before, I, I do happen to know Eric and rather intimately. And I know that he, he doesn’t want you, so I think it’s best for all parties involved. If you stop being so desperate, throwing yourself up.

All right. Oh God, it’s not the both of you. Oh

God. Eric, you know what? I know you’re craving and maybe that’s what’s affecting your judgment, but there is no excuse for the horrible person that you’ve become. And if you ever break whatever spell you’re under, I have no doubt that you will regret laying eyes or any other body part on her. She’s a lot, some awful bitch.

I’m really sorry about your mother.

Finally, peace, quiet.

Where did you disappear to? No, rather, I don’t blame you. If I had a happy like that stalking you. I disappeared too. Step I just, you can come out now.

Thanks. We do for love,

Allie with me. You are never going to have to apologize for offering up a threesome. That is my solemn vow. All right. Very funny, but I dragged you into a fight between me and Chanel. That wasn’t fair. Don’t worry about it Serious. , but keep me on the list for future invitations. Alex, come on,

Did you two make up after I left? To what? No, that’s the thing. We slept in separate beds and then we barely talked this morning. You know, when we did talk, it just led to another fight. Oh, it sucks. I’m sorry to hear that. Yeah, but I did get Chanel to admit one thing. She admitted that when I caught her and Johnny at the hospital.

They were about to kiss. Come on. You and I both know what happened at the hospital. Man. Nothing. Right? I, I, I was upset about my grandma Marlena, and you were just comforting me. Look, I told you, you should just let me talk to Allie. Don’t trust me. You are the last person Allie wants to see right now with me being the one possible exception.

I’m sorry, Chanel, I just, I couldn’t deny it anymore. And then Allie pushed me into a corner and then she forced me to admit that what she thought almost happened almost happened.

My family is here for your family. Anything we can do, please, please let us know. Alina, thank you so much. That means a lot. Well, I don’t wanna keep you. I should be going anywhere. I have to call my attorney who’s dealing with some frivolous litigation. Hello? Well, if you don’t mind me asking, who’s suing you?

Who else? Sloan Peterson. That’s sadistic. Little Wish has slapped me with the civil suit.

You sure you’re okay? Mm-hmm. . This, the blow that your ex gave was superficial, but I gave as good as I got. I’m totally necessary. I was bringing you your phone, Eric, and I appreciate it. Listen, how in return I buy you breakfast. Now you don’t have to do that. No strings attached. Just we are. I mean, I owe you for all the, the beer, the takeout, you know, the visits to your place.

So come on. What did you say? Fine, after today, I could use four.

I assume you went to the office. You okay? No, I’m not. Okay. How fool is what I am. Yeah. I went to see Eric to give him my condolences and, and tell him how sorry I was about his mother and, and then Sloan flew in on her broom bragging to everyone with an earshot that she slept with.

Yeah, Stephan pulled him so we could toast to him taking his place by my side as CO c e o Deir. Congratulations, Stephan. But he seems to have disappeared, so now you and I will toast to Sloane Peterson. Oh, there’s no way in Helen Toast that bitch. You didn’t let me finish. Take it

to Sloan for moving in on the holier than thou hypocrite Eric Brady and to you for moving on from set. Hypocrite. She deserves Soon you deserve better.

Both of them, Johnny and Chanel are sticking to their lame excuse that he was upset about my grandma and she was consoling him. Alex, I’m upset about my grandma too, but you don’t see me making out with the person standing right in front of me. Of course not. Like, I’m not going after Johnny’s girlfriend, but I also can’t cut my brother outta my life forever, especially with everything going on in our family right now.

But I also don’t wanna worry that he’s always gonna be chasing after my girlfriend, and I don’t wanna worry about Chanel betraying me.

That’s it. All right, I’m gonna go find Allie. I’m gonna talk to John. No, wait. Wait, I told you I don’t want you to do that. I know, I know. Okay. But this, this almost kiss, it meant nothing. And whatever something there was, it was on me. All right. Allie needs to know that she’s already used to the idea of me being an insensitive jerk so I can get her past this.

Trust me. And I know my sister Johnny.

I can’t let you take all the blame for this. Yes. Yes, you did lean in to kiss me. That was you, but I didn’t stop it. And if I’m being totally honest with myself in that moment, I didn’t want to.

But then, Everything you did to stop the extradition order and you saved me and my daughter, Sloane, has turned around and filed a civil suit for wrongful death. Paulina, why didn’t you come to me right away? You know what hell I mean after everything you’ve been going through. Oh, well, I appreciate that, but work actually helps me deal with all of it.

Gets my mind off things. Please let me help you and Chan. It’ll help me too. I’m well, I’d be thrilled to add you to the team, but are you sure? I am positive. I like you almost as much as I hate Sloane Peterson. So what do you say? I’d say the feelings. Mutual . Why don’t you, uh, let me treat you to breakfast.

We’ll talk strategy about how to take that off a lady now.

You were right. I told you I’d make a mean pancake. No, about Nicole. Provoking Nicole. Um, it was a mistake. Oh, that, I know I shouldn’t be looking for trouble, but she just makes it so easy to get under her skin and knock her off balance. And I hate to admit it, but maybe I am a little jealous. Oh, you were a little jealous, huh?

Well, it’s very clear that she still has feelings for you. Sloan, but what’s not clear is Eric, do you still have feelings for her?

How are you feeling? Any better? Yes, I’m feeling much better. Thank you. So you want to tell me what happened between you and Ms. Sloan Peterson? That woman is beyond smug. . Okay. So she saw me hugging Eric, and I really was just consoling him. Look, I’ve known him for half my life. She’s known him for what?

Five minutes. She harassed you for hugging her boyfriend Eric. Hugging. Eric, sorry. She went to the pub to give him his. and instead of handing it to him like an adult and excusing herself, she used it as an opportunity to gloat about how he’s a another notch on her bed post. And she made an uncomfortable situation even worse by making lewd and inappropriate insinuations about.

About, about us, you and me. Oh,

uh, Nicole. Maybe that’s, we’re doing a little bit. Ooh. Hmm. I can hold my liquor.


Who did this? Who are you?

That would be me.

All right, Alex. Now I know I’m the last person to give any type of relationship advice. Because the one serious relationship I had or that wanted to have, I found every which way possible to ruin it. But I’ve seen you and Chanel together more than most people, probably more than anybody ever really think about it.

But you going, the point is, I have seen you and Chanel together. I see how much she loves you. She adores you and that’s why she chose to be with you over Johnny. Her and Johnny were married. They were married. They’re not married anymore. Okay? So please listen to me. You are beautiful. You were smart, you’re funny, and you’re way hotter than your brother.

I always thought So , that is so, that is a fact. You can e in stone. That is never. Probably the hottest girl I’ve ever been with, and I’ve been with a lot of girls. Is that weird to say? Yeah. Oh no. You know what? No, that actually, that actually makes me feel a lot better. Well, good. Very good. So why don’t you go home and make up with your girlfriend

you wanted to kiss. Maybe I shouldn’t have said that, but in that moment, I just look, I, I love Allie and I am totally committed to her, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still feel something for you.

Well, um, you know, I, I loved you once too.

So then, uh, what are we gonna do about this lingering attraction?

There’s always going to. Some sort of connection between me and Nicole. There always will be. You know, we’ve had enough chances to make it right. We’ve had more than enough chances to make it right. We never did, and even will, if we were in court, I would ask the judge to instruct the witness to answer the question, which was, do you still have feelings for Nicole?

I don’t see how anyone could have an appetite in this pub. With you sitting here, you better get used to my presence, Ms. Price. After all, we’re gonna be stuck in a courtroom together very soon. Speaking of which, I can’t wait to see what Joker you hired to argue your daughter’s defense. And yours. Oh, well, the weight is over, Ms.

Peterson. I am the joker who’s already beat you once and well, I could beat you again with my hands tied behind my back,

just, just bleeding the call. I’ll have Harold clean it up. Oh gosh. I, uh, I don’t know what happened. I just got a bit oozy there for a second, but I’m fine now.

Oh God. I just hate that. I let that bitch get me so upset, Nicole. Don’t give her that power over you. She’s a cold-blooded lawyer. She knows exactly how to elicit an emotional reaction from you and throw you off ballots. It’s her job.

You’re right. I, I certainly just don’t wanna give her the satisfaction of getting me upset and getting to me. I,

but on the other hand, Why should I deny myself the satisfaction of going over there and ripping every little hair on of her head? Well far be from me to tell someone to deny the Docker impulses. But Nicole,

Nicole, let’s, let’s, let’s, let’s get you upstairs. Let’s get you upstairs.

Ah, my head is killing me. Psycho. I’m sorry. I, I’m, I didn’t wanna hit you so hard on your head, but it’s fine. We know that there isn’t gonna be any permanent damage. Us. We both know how thick your skull is. You crazy. Hey, you know, I’m not the one here with the mental problems, and since you already told me that you no longer wanna find Ralph to undo some mental problems, I, I felt that desperate action was required because I’m not giving up on us.

Okay. Maybe we should open up discussions again about . Nice tray, smart guy. Listen, you’re not gonna get out of it this time, whether you liked it or not. We’re gonna fix that thick skull of yours and then, then we’re gonna see where your heart lies.

There you go. Better? Yes, it’s much better. Just lie down and rest. Stay with you if you’d like. Thank you, ej. I just. I think I’m just gonna lie down for a minute. I, I usually hold my liquor with the best of what’s

is nothing.

You’re a smart. Dynamic and

very beautiful woman.

Eric Grady is a fool. He never should have let you go.

What is your problem, Eric? Our mother just died and you’re, you’re just here hanging out with her. All right. Why don’t you not question me or my decisions, and I won’t question why you’re out. Ambulance chasing ambulance. Where’s there an ambulance? This is an, this is an attack on good people and a frivolous lawsuit with absolutely no merit whatsoever.

Why don’t you stop grandstanding and say it for the c. I’m not on the jury, but I’ve seen enough to know that you are on the wrong side of this. Sloan is an injured party here, and having lost the mother too soon, I can relate. And so should you stunt irreparable harm to Sloan, not the other way around.

Chanel took her mother away and Paulina covered it up. It’s in the story.

Ah, nice friends for you. If you want aspirin, are you out of your mind? First off, I will never, ever ingest anything from you as long as I live. Secondly, I’m timing. Lemme go. Okay, stop. It’s my turn. Now. First of all, settle down. Second of all, it’s just aspirin, Stephan. Okay? If I’m not gonna. Oh, you are unbelievable.

Thank you. See this. This is exactly why I abandoned any, any possibility, however, slim of ever getting back with you, your psychotic drive to take what you want in your incessant need to get your way, you know, step and fall. Actually, you don’t know because Rolf scrub your brain, but all the reasons that you’ve given me for not wanting to be with me.

Are there reasons why couldn’t live without me? My relentlessness, my, my passion, my drive, my desire to, to fight for what is mine, to defend what I think is mine. That’s what you loved about me. You couldn’t get enough. Oh, right. So then I should be forced to be someone I’m not against. My will is, To undergo some weird experimental therapy to re brainwash me so I can start feeling feelings that I don’t feel anymore or love Stephan for the love that I know is in there.

The love that was taken away from you. Es your will. Okay, Gabby, listen up. I don’t want to be with you and I never will. I know that you believe that. It hurts me to hear you say this, but I know it’s the brainwashing talking, and I know you don’t wanna be tied to this chair, but I had no option. We’re gonna get through this together, and once it’s done, you’re gonna see that it was all worth it, I promise.

How Gabby, how is this gonna work? Huh? Marlena is dead. Rolf has disappeared. Your husband Lee ought of that. So without Rolf the only person who can undo his own handiwork, I don’t see how I look. You’re right about one thing. My love. Yes. We don’t know where. But as you just said, we do know somebody who does.

Hi Lee, it’s Gabby. I really need to see you.

What? Well, normally I would just ghost you, but. , seeing as I’m in love with your twin sister. I don’t really see that happening. And really I prefer not to be ghosted regardless of how complicated this may be, fair. So I guess we’ll just have to be a little more careful around each other from now on, and I promise not to lean in anymore deal, and I promise not to lean back or not to lean away.

or no, not to lean into Well, you get the picture. Yeah. So what’s the deal?

I really care about you Shael, and I really care about my sister and we were able to overcome this little triangle we had a while back. And I don’t want to come between the two of you again. Besides, I think this thing with Wendy could be, uh, could be really. I’m happy for you. I’m happy for you too and for Allie.

Um, look, I know you guys are gonna figure this out. Okay. Thanks.

Normally I would defend my daughter to the death and put ignorant, mean-spirited people in their place. But out of respect for your mama, I’m not going to do that. Let’s just go to Julie’s place instead. Oh,

maybe I should get going myself. What? Why? It turns out these breakfast benefits aren’t really that beneficial first, Nicole, and now. I don’t wanna be the person that comes between you and your sister, please. It’s nothing that I can’t handle science. I like having you around.

Thank you for saying that, ej. That’s always nice to.

Especially these days,

and you know, you are, uh, you’re right about Sloan. I mean, I, I don’t need to go over there and engage with Sloan. It’s exactly what she wants. Why should I give into. You shouldn’t.

You know what? It’s a hell with Eric Sloan can have him. I don’t need him anymore.

I wanna have you.

Sadie Laflamme-Snow of "The Way Home" on Hallmark

Interview with Sadie Laflamme-Snow of “The Way Home” on Hallmark by Suzanne 1/25/23

It was so nice to speak to this talented young actress. We had a great, short chat about her new show that is part family drama and part fantasy.



The Way Home When three generations of women reunite after being estranged for more than two decades, they embark on an enlightening – and surprising – journey toward healing none of them could have imagined as they learn how to find their way back to each other.


STUDIO CITY, CA – January 15, 2023 – Three generations of women embark on an enlightening journey to find their way back to each other and learn important lessons about their family’s past in “Mothers and Daughters,” the series debut of “The Way Home” premiering Sunday, January 15 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel. Andie MacDowell (“Maid,” “Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove”), Chyler Leigh (“Supergirl,” “Greys Anatomy”), Evan Williams ( Blonde, “Versailles”), and Sadie Laflamme-Snow (“The Apprentice”) star in the multigenerational family drama. Alex Hook (“I am Frankie”), Al Mukadam (“Pretty Hard Cases,” “The Detail), Jefferson Brown ( Masters of Romance, “Slasher”) and David Webster ( Luckiest Girl Alive, “In the Dark”) also star.

Kat Landry (Leigh), her 15-year-old daughter Alice (Laflamme-Snow) and Kat’s mother Del (MacDowell) are all strong, willful and independent. More than 20 years prior, lifechanging events prompted Kat to move away from her small, Canadian farm town of Port Haven and she and Del have been estranged ever since. Alice has never met her grandmother and is unaware of the reasons for their fractured family. With Kat’s marriage coming to an end and having just been laid off from her job, she decides to return home after receiving an unexpected letter from Del urging her to come back. Although Alice is none-too-thrilled, Kat and her daughter arrive at her family’s farm. Kat is disappointed that she doesn’t receive a warmer reception from Del and it’s clear that there are wounds that need to heal. Wanting to escape the tension, Alice explores the property and finds herself on a surprising journey.
