THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Hi. Come in, please. Okay. I-I just got to get my keys. Hey, joss. Cameron, have you seen my — mom. Oh, mrs. Baldwin. Sorry. Didn’t mean to interrupt. Not that I’m complaining, but this is the second time we’ve worked remotely. You sure we can keep the gallery closed this much? If a client needs me, they can call me. Besides, before you know it, you’ll be off at pcu busy with classes. Really, you should take every opportunity to enjoy this time with friends. Spencer: I couldn’t agree more. Okay, bye. Sam: Hey. Sam. Hi. I keep meaning to call you and your sisters. That’s okay. Um, mom told me you went to visit her at spring ridge. What did you think? It’s not bad for a minimum-security prison. I mean, the facilities are infinitely better than pentonville. The focus is less on incarceration, more on rehabilitation. I think on the whole, it’s a good move for alexis. But? Ryan chamberlain is currently being housed there. Who wants to help me decorate? Well, valentin can’T. He’s actually missing bailey’s feeding for an important meeting. I thought you’d enjoy spending time alone with our daughter.

[ Scoffs ] What are you looking for? My phone. Um, would it be too much to ask that we don’t let wiley play with this? Ask michael or willow. Not my kid, not my problem. Is it, sweetie? ‘Cause you would never take daddy’s phone. Now I am late. Can we be expecting you for wiley’s birthday party today? Wouldn’t miss that for the world.

Au revoir, mon ange. Don’t miss daddy too much. Sorry about that. Please tell me this is not another toy for wiley. Trust me, between olivia, michael, and willow, we have that area covered. Willow said I only needed to bring myself, but wiley’s my stepson. I didn’t want to show up empty-handed. Thank you. Actually… what? I owe you an apology.

[ Knock on door ] Hi. Why you holding out on me?

[ Door closes ] I’m not. Really? Yeah. I thought we were sharing our information in our investigation into peter’s disappearance. We are. So what changed? It takes a certain kind of person to change the world. My great-great-grandmother, my great-grandfather, great-great-grandfather was that kind of person. He looked after his community. She built an empire. He protected this nation. They lived their lives in extraordinary ways. With ancestry, I learned the story of peter vaughters… william lacy… madam C.J.Walker. They are the heroes in my family.

Who are the heroes in yours?

From prom dresses

to workouts

and new adventures

you hope the more you give

the less they’ll miss.

But even if your teen was

vaccinated

against meningitis in the past they may be missing vaccination for meningitis B.

Although uncommon,

up to 1 in 5 survivors of

meningitis will have

long term consequences.

Now as you’re thinking about

all the vaccines your teen

might need

make sure you ask your doctor

if your teen is missing

meningitis b vaccination. (Drill sergeant) what a pleasant morning. It’s warm, but not too warm. (Private) why’s he so happy? (Buzz) he’s happy because found out that honey nut cheerios can help lower cholesterol. (Drill sergeant) so, I propose a quiet, meditative walk through nature. (Privates) yes, drill sergeant! At philadelphia, we know what makes the perfect schmear of cream cheese. You need only the freshest milk and cream. That one! And the world’s best, and possibly only, schmelier. Philadelphia. Schmear perfection. Still fresh unstopables in-wash scent booster downy unstopables

They can even change

the world around us.

change everything.

[ Heavy breathing ]

Allergies with nasal

congestion overwhelming you?

Breathe more freely with

powerful claritin-D.

Claritin-d improves nasal

airflow two times more

than the leading allergy

spray at hour one.

[ Deep inhale ]

Claritin-D. Get more airflow. What do you have to apologize for? Detective, I am the reason that peter was raised by his father, cesar faison. I turned a blind eye to his worst traits, and I was slow to react. I-I didn’t do anything until it was too late. Look, there is a lot that you should be sorry for. But peter putting me in this chair isn’t one of them. Only peter is responsible for peter. You’re a kind man. Thank you… for your willingness to let me off the hook. And almost dying did have its good points. It sped up my relationship with willow. That’s amazing. Congratulations on your marriage. Thank you. Now I’m just waiting for the day that I can get out of this chair and be willow’s husband in… every sense of the word. Well, they say attitude is everything. I have no doubt that your positive attitude will work wonders in your life. Just know that I deeply regret my part in the collateral damage in peter’s wake. Have a good day. I just saw you yesterday. If I’d found out anything more, I would have told you. Oh, yeah, just like how you told me that you and finn were gonna be in the sub-basement. Yeah, it was a spur-of-the-moment thing. Oh. It was a long shot. I didn’t know until we got down there that it was a legitimate lead. Did you hear anything from forensics? Yeah. They’ve been working through the night picking up partial prints. Okay? Mostly unusable. Oh. So, any fingerprints or dna that could help us identify peter’s companion? Just blood mostly, in the corridors and elevator. Mm-hmm. All belonging to peter. Oh. And this blood, is it… droplet or a smear pattern? It’s droplets. So that means that peter wasn’t dragged out of there. Yeah, it means peter was carried out of there, or he walked out under his own power. Either way, it means he’s still out there. Good morning, josslyn. Morning. Um, I’m gonna meet you at the pool. Sounds good.

[ Door closes ] So, joss and i are kind of together. Kind of? You guys looked pretty together to me. Are you mad at me?

[ Chuckling ] No. No, I’m not mad. Josslyn is a sweet girl, and she’s been a good friend to you. And you’ve known each other forever. I’m glad you have each other. Me, too. And I-I’m sorry for not telling you sooner. I wasn’t intentionally keeping joss and me from you. I guess I’m just kind of used to going to franco with these kinds of things. Once again, you’re criticizing my mothering skills. And once again, you are getting defensive over nothing. Honey, I was giving you a compliment. You’re always putting down your mothering skills, and I’m trying to tell you that the opposite is true. You’re amazing with bailey. I am?Honey, you’re a natural. And you were right, reminding me that I trusted you with leo when he was a newborn. I actually forgot how good you are with babies. Guess I keep forgetting, too. I know firsthand that you are capable of immense love and selflessness. Honey, and now with your own, I think maybe you’re being so generous with valentin because you’re afraid to let yourself really feel that overpowering mother love. Guess I never thought of it that way. Valentin’s just so good with her, I just figure, why wouldn’t i support that, right? Honey, it’s okay to be vulnerable. To let yourself love this baby. That tough shell of yours? Bailey already cracked it. I’m a firm believer in friends enjoying themselves. Old friends or new? It’s always more interesting hanging out with new friends. Don’t you think? You know, I wasn’t aware that the two of you knew each other — well, until the other day, when spencer exposed you for trying to get nikolas and me back together. “Parent-trapping,” I think he called it. I shouldn’t have gotten involved. It was my fault, too. Trina and i learned a valuable lesson — to stay out of other people’s business. Well, I hope you mean that, spencer. I do. I’m sorry you didn’t bring little avery with you. I would have loved to say hello. I’m sorry. Is she still living with aunt carly? Hey, trina, order whatever you want from the bar, as long as it’s nonalcoholic. My treat, okay? And I’m gonna go order myself a very bloody mary.

[ Chuckles ] Have fun. Thank you. That was generous of ava. You seem surprised. Ava’s actually been a really good friend to me. And I think I know how to be one for her. How? By finding out who’s been stalking her and nikolas. My mother didn’t tell me she was in the same facility with ryan chamberlain. She probably didn’t want to worry you. But you did? There’s nothing to worry about. Ryan is still locked in. He can’t move. He can’t talk. He’s not a danger to alexis or anyone else. No, no, I’m not buying anything about that raging psychopath. I wheeled him and parked him into a corner, literally. He couldn’t so much as twitch in protest. All he can do is blink. Uh, I’m sorry to say this, but I’m with ava on this one. I think ryan’s capable of fooling anyone, including you and his doctors. Well, whether it’s ryan or some copycat devotee, ava and i are getting divorced, since it’s what the stalker seems to want. But getting a divorce wouldn’t be your first choice? No, it’s not my choice. It’s ava. I mean, the stalker proved that he can get to avery, and that was it for ava. It’s a line she won’t cross. And how could I blame her? Um, enough about me. What’s going on with you? Okay, um… I’m working a case. And it’s no secret that shawn butler didn’t shoot hayden barnes, and he hired me to find out who did. And that’s why I tracked you down here to the metro court, because you’re gonna help me find him. We women are in the know about everything. So why don’t we know how much estrogen is in our birth control pill? Get to know lo lo. Lo loestrin fe provides pregnancy prevention with the lowest daily dose of estrogen. That’s so lo lo.

Serious risks of birth control

pills include blood clots,

stroke, and heart attack,

which can be fatal.

Smoking increases these risks,

especially if you are over 35,

so lo loestrin fe users

should not smoke.

Don’t take the pill if you’ve

had any of these conditions

or high blood pressure

that medicine can’t control,

certain cancers,

liver disease,

unexplained vaginal bleeding,

are taking hepatitis c drugs,

or if you could be pregnant. Ask your doctor about lo lo. The birth control pill with the lowest daily dose of estrogen. Are you in the lo? – Bedtime!! – Bedtime. I love bedtime.

The thin, sweet bite

to end the night.

Oreo thins. Not touching is still touching protection. Adding lysol laundry sanitizer kills 99.9% of bacteria. Detergent alone, can’T. Lysol. What it takes to protect. I’ve been telling everyone,the secret to great teeth… is having healthy gums.

Keep yours healthy with

crest advanced gum restore. It’s clinically proven to detoxify below the gum line. And, it restores by helping heal gums in as little as 7 days. Because you can’t have a healthy smile, without healthy gums. Advanced gum restore from crest.

The #1 toothpaste brand

in america. (Denise) my husband has lung cancer from smoking. Today, he’s being tested to see if his cancer has spread. He may be the one getting the test, but we both live with the results.

[Announcer]

You can quit. For free help,

call 1-800-quit now. Listen, kid, you’re cute, but I think it’s better if we keep our arrangement strictly professional. Look, I know you can’t do that with your daddy/papa, ’cause he doesn’t even know you’re not really his. And do I feel guilty about that? Yes…and no. Yes, because valentin is turning out to be a really good father. Aww, here you go, mama. And he’s actually a pretty decent guy, too. But no, and I’m sorry to be the one to tell you this, but your biological father is a wall-crawling psycho. So it’s actually much, much healthier for you to bond with valentin.

[ Sighs ] I mean, he would protect you regardless. But it doesn’t hurt that he absolutely adores you. Aww, here you go, sweetie. Shh. Shh, shh. As for you and me, I think it’s better if neither of us gets too comfortable with one another. So save your adoring eyes for your real mother. Real mother? What do you mean by that? I’m sorry you don’t have franco to talk to anymore. But he would be thrilled you and josslyn are together. He always just wanted to see you happy. Yeah, I think so, too. It’s tough, isn’t it? Getting used to not having him around. Sometimes when I have a really difficult day at work, I come home thinking I just can’t wait to tell franco about it. Well, you can always talk to me. And you can always talk to me. Thanks. I’ll see you later. Okay. And, mom? Yeah. Franco would want all of us to be happy. See, isn’t this nice — going for a walk, getting a little fresh air, soaking up the sun, little vitamin d? Have a private conversation? The last thing I want is for you to turn yourself in to protect me. And the last thing I want is for them to find peter’s body and your dna to be on it. I’d rather take the fall alone than implicate you in any way. The best thing for everyone is if this body’s never found. I just got some stuff I need to work through first, nothing you need to worry about. But then I promise, I will be as happy as franco would want me to be. Good. So, you, uh, expecting someone? You seemed surprised to see me. Valentin. Mm. Well, he wants to bring peter in as much as we do. I guess who you decide to collaborate with is your decision. Yes, it is. He doesn’t have the most reassuring track record, anna. I think he’s changed, dante. Well, people don’t change. And valentin is always out for himself. Doesn’t matter who gets in the way. I’ll take that under advisement. Hello, dante. Have you found peter? Not yet. Have you?

[ Sighs ] No. Not yet. See you. Were you exchanging information? Not all of it. Hayden went to see shawn while he was in prison, and she hinted that she might know the identity of her shooter. But she left port charles before shawn could press her for any information. This is the first time she left, correct? Months after the shooting? Yes, correct. I don’t know how I can help you. Come on. You were married to her. Yeah, the operative word being “were.” Our relationship was complicated, to put it mildly. I mean, technically, we were still married when I was presumed dead. Oh, is that what you’re calling it? How about the time valentin tried to kill me, and so I chose to go into hiding? For three years. When I decided to take back my life, I contacted hayden. She and jax, they worked with me to reclaim what was rightfully mine, and I intended to cut her in on a share of the proceeds. But she took off, because she was afraid of valentin. Leaving violet with finn. I mean, finn told me that hayden hasn’t been in contact with violet at all. Hey, I tried to track hayden down. It’s like she disappeared in a black hole. We’re trying to look for hayden’s mother, naomi dreyfus. Hopefully she could steer us in the right direction, but we’ve hit a wall there. Can you do me a favor? If you can find out any information on hayden, will you let me know? Of course. Just remember, hayden made toxic friends and questionable choices. My advice to you and shawn — stop looking for her unless you want trouble arriving on your doorstep. Now, if you’ll excuse me.

[ Spencer clears throat ] You still here? May I join you? It’s a free country. So, what shall we charge to ava’s tab first? Does a virgin piña colada sound good? How about a mai tai minus the rum? I don’t think you were included on my tab. Besides, can’t cassadines cover their own drinks? A cassadine can not only cover his own drinks, he can supply them, along with a castle and a state-of-the-art sound system. Is that an invitation? Are you accepting? Accepting what? Spencer just offered to throw us a party. The airport can be a real challenge for new homeownerswho have become their parents… okay, everybody, let’s do a ticket check. Paper tickets. We’re off to a horrible start. …But we can overcome it. We’re not gonna point out our houses, landmarks, or major highways during takeoff. Don’t buy anything. I packed so many delicious snacks. -They’re — -nope. Would you say, ballpark, when group two is gonna get boarded? 2 hours and 58 minutes.

Progressive can’t protect you

from becoming your parents,

but we can protect your

home and auto when

you bundle with us. Someone should’ve left home earlier. My nunormal? Fewer asthma attacks with nucala. A once-monthly add-on injection for severe eosinophilic asthma. Nucala reduces eosinophils, a key cause of severe asthma.

Nucala is not for

sudden breathing problems.

Touch after touch bacteria in

That’s why microban 24 doesn’t

just sanitize and stop.

Microban 24 keeps killing

bacteria for 24 hours.

Spray on hard surfaces

bacteria initially,

including the covid-19 virus.

Once dry microban forms a

Microban 24.

Touch after touch,

it doesn’t give up. The olympic games are on, and so is toyota’s national sales event! Now’s the time to get a great deal on the 2021s while they last. Like camry. Highlander. Rav4. And more! Ooh! She sticks the landing. Come in today! (Narrator) toyota. Let’s go places. Rink on my tab. Shouldn’t you be swimming in the pool instead of a bloody mary? Pool bar doesn’t serve booze before noon. And you should not be seen with me. Our stalker could be watching. Is that what has you so upset?

[ Sighs ] I was just reminded that I cannot be with my daughter until you and i are divorced. I’m sorry. Does it help that I saw ryan? When? I visited alexis at spring ridge. Ryan chamberlain is staying at the same facility. Why didn’t you tell me sooner? Because there is nothing to tell. Ryan’s condition is unchanged. He is completely locked in. I honestly don’t see how he could be stalking anyone or even communicating to someone to carry out his orders. Well, if that’s true, then it really just makes things worse. We have no idea who’s terrorizing us, just that they’re as sick as ryan, and their anonymity makes them even more dangerous. Spencer. God, it’s just so nice of you to throw us a party. Oh, we’ve got to have a photo booth. A deejay and a full lighting package. Bungee jumping from the parapet — slow down. I haven’t agreed to anything. So much for making it up to me. Ooh, what’s spencer making up for this time? First, he sabotages my plan to get ava and nikolas back together. Then he offers to throw a party to make amends. Now he’s backing out of said party. Dude, you got to throw that party. I thought you were the guy with no limits. I mean, didn’t you rent that yacht one time in, uh, “ibeeza”? First, it’s pronounced “ibitha.” Oh, right. Sorry. I don’t know what I was thinking. Second, I’m not backing out of anything. Whatever the lady wants, the lady gets. Hey, honey. Hey. Whoa, that’s a lot of glitter. But you got a lot of glitter in your hair, too. Uh, yeah, come on in. Come in. Hey. Charlotte thought it would be a good idea to make a birthday card for wiley out of glitter. Rocco and leo thought it’d be a better idea to throw glitter all over the backyard. Oh, he didn’T. No, and all over themselves and all over you? I’m very glad that the boys are good friends. They are very happy. Charlotte, not so much. I can imagine. Yeah. So, rocco told me that, uh — that you’re taking him to see lulu in the next couple days, huh? Yeah, yeah, that’s the plan. It’s good. That’s good. He should, uh — he should be seeing his mom. Why do I get the feeling you’re gonna tell me something I don’t want to hear? God, chase. You could give a girl a heart attack, sneaking up on me like that. Why are you telling your daughter you’re not her real mother? Because I don’t feel like her real mother. Look, I’m not an expert on babies, but I think you’re selling yourself short. I think you are a real mother to bailey. Come on, I-I was your roommate. I’ve seen firsthand how fiercely devoted you are to the people that you care about. Have you seen finn? I did. And? It was him. He was on the roof with peter. Anna, I am so sorry. Yeah, it is what it is. I just have to figure out a way to protect him. From what? Why does finn need protecting? Anna, what is going on? What happened on that roof? Finn pushed peter. And he fell down the stairs. And, um… he’s convinced he’s dead. Well, this is a surprise. Come in. Thank you. Did you bring more of jason’s stuff to burn? Oh, gosh, how embarrassing. No, I think that was enough danger to last me the rest of the year. Well, after finding out that jason and carly were engaged, I think we both needed to blow off some steam. Hope dante didn’t give you a hard time. Dante: You know, for what it’s worth, I think jason messed up. He had a chance at a lifetime. And he didn’t take it. If it were me, I would have chosen you. It turned out alright at the end. Well, if we’re not burning anything, what brings you by? Your sister hayden. I need to find her. A lot of people think dealing with copd is a walk in the park. If I have something to help me breathe better, everything will be fun and nice. But I still have bad days… flare-ups, (cough cough) which can permanently damage my lungs. My lungs need protection against flare-ups. So it’s time to get real. Because in the real world… our lungs deserve the real protection of breztri. Breztri gives you better breathing… symptom improvement, and flare-up protection. It’s the first and only copd medicine proven to reduce flare-ups by 52%.

Breztri won’t replace

a rescue inhaler

for sudden breathing problems.

It is not for asthma.

Tell your doctor if you have

a heart condition…

or high blood pressure

before taking it.

Don’t take breztri

more than prescribed.

Breztri may increase

your risk of thrush,

pneumonia, and osteoporosis.

Call your doctor if worsened

breathing, chest pain,

mouth or tongue swelling…

problems urinating,

vision changes,

or eye pain occur. For real protection, ask your doctor about breztri.

ohh, it’s yoplait time. (Vo) pack go-gurt frozen. Thaws by lunch. Hey, it’s me…your skin.Some cleansers get us clean – but take my moisture. I’m craving a balanced clean with cerave. Cerave cleansers, developed with dermatologists, help me maintain my moisture balance with hyaluronic acid, known to attract moisture, plus 3 essential ceramides to help restore my natural barrier. With cerave, cleansing can be about giving not just taking, so we can be a healthy-feeling clean – cerave clean. Cerave cleansers. From the #1 dermatologist recommended skincare brand. At philadelphia, we know what makes the perfect schmear of cream cheese. The recipe we invented over 145 years ago and me…the world’s best, and possibly only, schmelier. Philadelphia. Schmear perfection. We’re eating and drinking foods and beverages that are very acidic. It can soften the enamel. Pronamel repair, what it’s doing is driving more minerals deep into the enamel surface, that’s going to help actively repair. Pronamel is taking it to another level. Charmin ultra soft has so much cushiony softness, it’s hard for your family to remember they can use less. Sweet pillows of softness! This is soft! Holy charmin! Oh! Excuse me! Roll it back, everybody! Sorry! Charmin ultra soft is so cushiony soft, you’ll want more! But it’s so absorbent, you can use less. So it’s always worth it. Now, what did we learn about using less? You’ve got to, roll it back everybody! We all go, why not enjoy the go with charmin. (Vo) single-serve fancy feast petitesare just for her. Just the right size. Just the right gourmet flavor. No artificial preservatives or colors. Just what she needs. Just what you want. Fancy feast petites. Love is in

the details. Finn confronted peter on the roof when he was waiting for the helicopter, and he begged him for the antidote. But peter refused and chose to toss the vial off the roof, which just… infuriated finn. He lost it and shoved peter. He fell down the stairs, smashing his head open in the process. By the time finn got to him on the landing, he checked for a pulse, but there wasn’t one. And at that point, it was more important for him to save chase. So he took peter’s body and deposited it in a — in an abandoned lab, in the sub-basement. Helena’s lab. Yeah. Um… finn put peter’s body in a freezer. What, by himself? He’s vague about that. Meaning he had help. Yeah, possibly. Probably. But he refuses to admit it. But listen. This is the important part. He put peter’s body in the freezer because he couldn’t figure out a safe way to move it. And now he took me there yesterday to show me, but the body’s gone. There’s no sign of peter. Dead or alive? That’s the million-dollar question. The pcpd, they found traces of peter’s blood in the lab, the elevator, the access corridors. But it’s not clear yet whether the body was carried out of there. Or if he walked out. Yeah. What does dante know? Just that peter’s missing and hurt. He found a lot of the blood actually yesterday. But the pcpd, they obviously — they don’t know about finn’s connection to any of this. Yet. Yeah. Jordan says she wants to put most of her attention on the person that was on the roof with peter, which is concerning. And all forensics has proven is that, dead or alive, peter was removed from the basement. Brook lynn: This whole baby thing’s got me rattled. I mean, I was fine when olivia gave me leo to take care of, but here, I just feel like I’m under a microscope. Lots of people living under one roof telling you how to raise your baby? Yeah, and not enough space to get this mothering thing right, although, shock of all shocks, olivia told me I’m doing a good job. Well, if anyone can sense someone going through the motions, it’s olivia. I wish I could say the same for myself. What are you talking about? Going through the motions. I feel like I’m — I’m putting on a front for willow. It’s — it’s like I’m this optimistic guy who thinks he’s gonna jump out of the chair any day. You will. Yeah, I’m trying. I really am grateful to the quartermaines for asking me back to stay at the house. Trust me. They’re putting up valentin. You’re easy-peasy. It’s the perfect situation for me. The house already has wheelchair access because of lila, and willow’s just up the driveway. What more could I ask for? To walk. Yeah. Yeah, that. It’s like I’m faking it, or I’m bluffing until one day, I miraculously wake up, and I actually feel like willow’s husband. Meanwhile, thanks to, uh, nelle benson and her scissors of doom, I can’t even sing bailey a lullaby. Maybe I can help with that. Can I hold bailey? Of course. Come here, sweet one. Take this.

[ Bailey fusses, brook lynn clicks tongue ] Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. Shh, shh, shh, shh. Aww. Hey, you. Hey. Oh, my gosh. You know, when my mom would rock me to sleep, she’d sing me this song. She’d sing…

lullaby and good night

you’re your mother’s delight

shining angels by your side

my darling, abide

soft and warm is your bed

close your eyes and rest your head

soft and warm is your bed

close your eyes and rest your head

[ Bailey fussing ] Yeah. Yeah. I-I don’t mean to pry. Well, but you’re gonna. Uh — every time you see lulu in that facility, it costs you. Now, and don’t get me wrong, I am so thrilled that you are back at the pcpd being a detective. But a job does not equal a life. Lulu was my life, ma. And now I barely even have a legal right to see her. Thankfully, laura allows me to. Oh, of course she does. But — but my point is, the — the divorce, I-I’m the one who insisted on that. And you’ve been beating yourself up about it for months. But it just seems like lately — I don’t know, maybe seems like you’re lightening up a little bit, trying to cut yourself some slack. I just wonder if — if maybe that didn’t have something to do with sam.

[ Sighs ] So, what, shawn was framed for hayden’s shooting. The judge who sentenced him is now being investigated for racial bias. And now shawn’s been released, and the governor commuted his sentence to time served. Yeah. That’s pretty much it. Now that the truth is out, whoever framed shawn could pose a danger to hayden. I know that you and hayden weren’t exactly friends at the time. We didn’t even know we were sisters. But you eventually did grow closer. And if there’s maybe some sort of information that hayden told you at some time that you didn’t think was important then that is actually important now, I mean, anything that could help us figure out who shot your sister. Elizabeth: Was hayden in the wrong place at the wrong time? Or was she shot because of you? Were you the one behind this? Was hayden… do you want something to drink or eat? I’ll put it on the cassadine tab. You can save ava’s offer for another time. I’m good, thanks. Okay. Spencer. Change your mind? Yes, about the party at wyndemere. If you don’t think your dad will approve, don’t have it. Joss and I kind of forced you into it anyway. Thanks. I know things are just getting back on track for you and your dad. I wouldn’t want to spoil it. Trina. Just get ready. For what? For the biggest rager port charles has ever seen. Until we figure out who is stalking us, who’s threatening us, threatening avery, there is no future for us, nikolas. Oh, don’t say that. Please don’T. Really, you j– you just make things more difficult. I don’t mean to. Don’t you know? There’s just — there’s nothing I wouldn’t do to make you feel safe. I do know that.

Whooping cough is highly contagious for people of any age. And it can cause violent uncontrollable coughing fits. Sometimes followed by vomiting and exhaustion. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about whooping cough vaccination because whooping cough isn’t just for kids. There are times, I wonder… why can’t I wear white after labor day? Something on your mind?

Anna, I say this as delicately as I can. I am not emotionally attached to finn like you are. I don’t have to give him the benefit of the doubt.

[ Sighs ] Where do we go from here? I mean, I-I’m lying by omission to dante and jordan. There are two possible scenarios. Peter is dead, and somebody has moved his body, or he’s alive, and he’s in hiding, and we’ve got problems. And I think it’s much more likely that he’s alive. Brook lynn: Shh, shh, shh, shh. Bailey’s sleeping like, well, a baby. My singing put her to sleep.Yeah. You know, maybe you could tell willow that. Can’t help but feeling that this version of me isn’t enough for her. Chase, any woman would be lucky to have you as a husband. And bailey is lucky to have you as a mom. I’ve seen the way that she looks at you and the way that you look at her. And I-I know I’m not a parent, but I think going all-in on loving your child, it’s half the battle. We have talked about this, okay? Sam and I, we’re just friends, okay? And we’re barely that after she threw us both in the harbor on the fourth, okay? You see? What? This is what I’m talking about. What?The — the — the spark! No. What spark? This is nothing. I don’t even know what you’re talking — rocco, let’s go, man! No, you’re smiling! You’re — you’re laughing! The other day, I saw you do a completely spontaneous rant about the yankees. Honey, you’ve got such an amazing capacity to embrace life. And maybe it’s got something to do with sam. Maybe not. I could be right. I could be wrong. I don’t know. But I know that if lulu was here, she’d want you to stop moping around. She would want you to live your life. I know. And I’m — I’m trying to, ma, to be in the present moment as much as I can, but it is — it’s really tough. Maybe I-I do have to start thinking about… letting go of lulu. So, I’m right?

[ Sighs ] Uh, yeah. Okay. As much as it pains me to say that, maybe you are. Elizabeth, can you think of anything that hayden told you that might be relevant? No. No, I-I can’t think of anything. I’m just trying to process what you told me. Shawn seems pretty convinced that she knew who was behind her attempted murder. Well, she didn’t talk to me about it. But there were a lot of things we didn’t talk about. She changed a lot once — once she became a mother. Everything she did was about violet. She was so loving and committed. That’s why it still doesn’t make sense she would just disappear and leave violet behind. Okay, so maybe she disappeared to protect violet. Or something happened, and hayden can’t come back. Josslyn: Were you and spencer finalizing details for the party? Actually, I was gonna let him off the hook, but he wasn’t having it. He swears it’s gonna be an epic party. Don’t get your hopes up too high, trina. Spencer’s a nice kid and all, but sometimes, he doesn’t deliver exactly what he promises. So you’re saying he’s a liar? More of a compulsive exaggerator. You see, spencer is capable of some incredible things, but he thinks he has to be all incredible all the time, sometimes to the point of being obnoxious. Are you warning me away from spencer? I miss you so much. And I miss avery. I want you both back. I know. Me, too.

I know where to go if I need someone to talk to. I think I’m good for now, though. But hey. And this is the only thing I’m gonna say about sam. Mm-hmm. Butt out. I’m sorry if my investigation has dredged up painful memories for you. If I learn where hayden is, you will be my first call. Thank you. Of course.

[ Cellphone rings ] Hello? You need to come over right away. Everything okay? We need to talk about hayden. What about her? About what you did to her. I’m not warning you away from spencer. Although that might actually be a good idea. I have a noninterference clause when it comes to other people’s relationships, or lack thereof. You know, if you want to be with spencer or victor or someone else or nobody at all, I am here to support, not to judge. Thank you. And besides, joss and I, we’re still figuring out stuff for ourselves. What’s to figure out? Well, cam’s mom, for one thing. Mrs. Baldwin walked in on us. Embarrassing. Yeah. Very. But after my mom and I talked, she was actually pretty chill about it. Lucky you. I would actually sink through the floor if my mom ever caught me kissing a guy.

[ Sniffles ] Everything okay? What do you want, spencer? I guess I deserve your suspicion. I wasn’t very subtle about my anger toward you. I know you have your reasons. I know that — that you needed me to testify to help you with valentin. And when your father came home, I practically blackmailed him into marrying me. No one’s perfect. Certainly neither of us. Since I’ve been home, I’ve seen how much my father loves you and you love him. Do you think that we can put the past behind us, start fresh? Is it possible that we could declare a truce? Why do you believe that peter survived? Who’s gonna move the body? What’s the point? I mean, unless finn has some unknown ally ready to cover for him. Come on. This is peter we’re talking about. He’s not the first dead man to get up and walk away in port charles. And now he’s had weeks to go to ground and cover his tracks. Yeah. That makes sense. I can’t help hoping that he’s dead. I know. I know. It would just be a relief to know that I wasn’t the one who had to kill him. See, this is how you and I are different. I’m ready to kill peter myself. I want him dead and buried, where he’s no longer a threat to anyone I love.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Kyle: Hey, just spoke with tara. She’s on her way here.

Jack: She know why you want to see her?

Kyle: No, I only told her i wanted to talk.

Jack: I still don’t know what to make of this security footage that phyllis sent us. It’s pretty clear sally and tara are both upset.

Kyle: Well, I wonder if tara found out something about sally.

Jack: Like what?

Kyle: Maybe tara found out that sally was involved with summer going off to italy.

Jack: I really don’t think that’s true.

Kyle: I’m just wondering. It would explain why tara was so upset in the elevator. Phyllis has been blaming her for summer leaving.

Jack: No, phyllis’ theory is that sally and tara have been working together, and believe me, she sees this video as proof positive.

Kyle: Okay, phyllis only sees what she wants to see, but there’s no sense in speculating further. Tara’s on her way here, and we’ll get to the bottom of this. There’s probably just a simple explanation.

Sally: So, is that why you keep harassing me? ‘Cause you think I did something nasty to your daughter.

Phyllis: Oh, not you alone. You and tara.

Sally: Summer’s in italy having the time of her life, taking the fashion world by storm. So what exactly did I do to her? Because if I was responsible for this — and I’m not — you should be thanking me instead of taking my phone and sending fake text messages pretending to be me.

Phyllis: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Sally: So you’re just continuing to deny it.

Phyllis: Well, why would I do something like that? Let’s think about it. Unless I wanted the person who was receiving the text to freak out and rush over here and confront you because she thought she was in trouble.

Sally: Okay, well, if that was your plan, it obviously failed because nobody freaked out.

Phyllis: Hmm. Not in the lobby.

[ Clicks tongue ] In the elevator.

Sally: What are you talking about?

Phyllis: The argument you and tara were having in the elevator.

Sally: There are security cameras in the elevator. Did you spy on us?

Phyllis: I am the proprietor of this establishment. I need to know what’s going on at all times.

Sally: I cannot believe that you would go to such extremes.

Phyllis: The cameras aren’t hidden.

Sally: You were snooping on a private conversation.

Phyllis: It’s an elevator, not a confessional.

Tara: I can’t wait anymore, sally. I’m needed at home.

Sally: Well, I was right. Tara, the text did come from phyllis, and she spied on us in the elevator.

Tara: I am dealing with a lot right now. The last thing I need is to get caught up in your drama. So just leave me out of it, please.

Phyllis: Wow, how does that feel, getting thrown under the bus?

Amanda: Hey.

Devon: Hey, you.

Amanda: Moses let me in when he was on his way to see nate. I hope you don’t mind.

Devon: No, of course I don’t mind. I don’t know, we should get you your own key made.

Amanda: Uh, are you sure that you’re ready to level up like that?

Devon: I mean, I’m just throwing the idea out there. I don’t know.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] So how was abby? Did she hear from mariah?

Devon: Yes, she did, just a text message saying that she’s gonna be back in time for her next doctor’s appointment.

Amanda: That’s all she said?

Devon: It’s all a little bit odd, but I’ll fill you in over dinner. I know that you’re seeing phyllis later, so we can eat earlier. Um, I’m gonna go upstairs and change. But while you wait, I think you should open up a bottle of something really nice because we’re celebrating.

Amanda: We are?

Devon: We are. Sutton ames is gonna finally pay for his decades-old crime because of you.

Amanda: Okay, not so fast. It’s not a slam dunk yet.

Devon: Yeah, well, it’s gonna be.

Amanda: I appreciate your confidence in me, but I’m not counting on anything. Besides, you know, we’re not supposed to be talking about the case, right? I just want to focus on the two of us.

Devon: I’m more than fine with that. I’ll be back.

Victoria: Hey. All of my loose ends are tied up at the office. I just have to pack, and then we can head to the airport. Next stop, new york, if you’re up for it still.

Ashland: I am. My suitcase is packed and the jet is all ready.

Victoria: Are you feeling okay?

Ashland: I am fine. I’m actually feeling better because while you were away, i made an appointment to see that specialist in new york to discuss my treatment options.

Victoria: I am so glad that you haven’t changed your mind about fighting this illness. I know — I know that it wasn’t an easy decision to make.

Ashland: No, it wasn’T. But I’ll be grateful for any extra moments I can get because I’ll be spending them with harrison and with you.

Victoria: I love the sound of that.

Ashland: Keep your expectations in check. Odds the treatment will extend my life past a little time are remote.

Victoria: Well, don’t tell me the odds. It just makes me more stubborn.

Ashland: You know, that stubbornness is something I find very attractive.

Victoria: Look, I know — i know there are no guarantees, but I’m ready for whatever happens next. And I’ll be with you every step of the way.

Give every morning a

fresh start

Devon: [ Sighs ] Hey.

Amanda: Hey.

[ Chuckles ] When you said that you were gonna change, I didn’t know that you were gonna change. You look good.

Devon: Thank you very much. I appreciate that. Just threw on this suit.

Amanda: I know, you are

wearing that suit.

Devon: [ Chuckles ] Alright. You ready to go?

Amanda: Let me finish my wine first.

Devon: Okay. What are you thinking about?

Amanda: Hmm. Let’s see, I was just thinking that if you really wanted to go to dinner, you would not come downstairs looking so damn good.

Devon: If it’s a problem, i can go back upstairs and I can change into something less distracting.

Amanda: That’s a good idea. Yeah, we should go upstairs.

Devon: Oh, you want to come with me?

Amanda: Well, I have to help you get out of that shirt.

Devon: We’re not gonna make dinner, are we?

Amanda: No, we are not.

Victoria: Okay, yes, I will definitely bring you something back from new york. I promise.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Have fun with your dad and be good. I love you, too. Bye.

Ashland: Johnny and katie are gonna miss you.

Victoria: Yes, well, billy will keep them so busy I doubt they’ll notice that I’m gone. But I was wondering if maybe you wanted to take a little time before we go to have a conversation with harrison about your health.

Ashland: Well, I don’t want to deal with tara. When we spoke earlier, she was so unreasonable. I just don’t need the aggravation right now.

Victoria: Well, don’t let your frustration with her keep you away from your son.

Ashland: She’s just being so irrational. I mean, I doubt that she’d even allow me to talk to him alone. She’d probably be nervous that i would say something about my illness without her there to supervise.

Victoria: Why is it so important for you to talk to him on your own?

Ashland: I get so little time with him as it is.

Victoria: It has to be more than just that.

Ashland: [ Sighs ] You know, there’s so much tension between tara and me right now. He picks up on that. It’s got to be stressful for him. I mean, I heard that he had nightmares after what happened in the park. We can’t predict what he’s gonna remember about me when he grows up — maybe nothing at all. But maybe it’ll stick with him, you know, when his dad told him he was sick. And that’s why I want it to be calm and comforting and reassuring. And I want it to be between me and my son. And if tara’s there, you know, I’m sure she’ll find a way to make it about her.

Victoria: Well, obviously, i don’t know her as well as you do, but I’m looking at this as a mother, and I can tell you, if billy had something unsettling to tell the kids, I’d want to be there. I mean, I probably wouldn’t say very much, but I’d want to show them my support, regardless of what was going on with their father. I think that it would be good for harrison to receive this message from both of his parents.

Ashland: Well, I suppose it’s worth considering from that perspective.

Tara: Hi.

Jack: Hi.

Tara: How’s harrison?

Kyle: Good. He’s napping upstairs.

Tara: What did you need to talk to me about?

Kyle: We wanted to make sure you’re okay. We got a strange message from phyllis.

Tara: [ Sighs ] I’m not surprised. Did you she tell you that she’s been spying on me?

Jack: No, we deduced that on our own, and for the record, we are not okay with that.

Kyle: But I want to know what’s happening ’cause you said that you needed some time for yourself, and then you went to the grand phoenix with sally.

Tara: I told you that because I didn’t want you involved.

Jack: Actually, that’s what we’re trying to clear up. Involved in what, exactly?

Tara: Uh, I got this text. It was troubling. Kyle may have noticed.

Kyle: I did. I remember you seemed bothered by it.

Tara: Yeah, it was from sally, I thought. But it didn’t make any sense and I was confused, so I went to ask her about it.

Jack: And what did the text say?

Tara: I don’t remember exactly, and I deleted it, but it was something like, “phyllis is a problem.”

Jack: What could that have meant?

Tara: Like I said, it was confusing. But sally put it together that phyllis sent it to me from sally’s phone. I mean [Chuckles] It’s childish and ridiculous and such a waste of time. And now she’s roping you into this mess? I mean, what exactly did she say?

Kyle: Not much, but she did send this video. You seem pretty upset with sally. What was that all about? Discomfort back there?

Tara: I can’t believe this. I mean, I’d heard that phyllis had been watching us, but to not only admit it but to send you this footage, I mean, that’s creepy. Is she obsessed? I mean, what could she hope to prove by this video?

Jack: We were hoping that maybe you could tell us.

Tara: All I know is that i was right not to trust her offer of friendship.

Jack: We have not spoken to phyllis since she sent this video. We’re just trying to figure things out. Maybe you could explain what’s happening in that video.

Kyle: Like when you showed sally your phone. What did you want her to see?

Tara: The text I received, and then she showed me hers to prove that she didn’t send it. I mean, honestly, I wasn’t sure what to believe, and I flew off the handle a bit. I’m kind of embarrassed.

Jack: There is no need to be embarrassed.

Tara: It’s just that sally’s constantly complaining about phyllis, and it felt like, in the moment, she was trying to enlist my help in her pointless feud. It was all just too much, and i reacted emotionally. You know the kind of strain I’ve been under, trying to start a new life and expand my business and dealing with ashland’s lashing out at me.

Jack: We both know how persistent phyllis can be, particularly when she thinks she’s protecting her daughter.

Tara: I didn’t do anything to summer. I don’t know where this is coming from. Jack, I know that I told you i didn’t need any help dealing with her, but maybe I was wrong. I mean, I have faced down some vicious women in my time, but this goes beyond anything I’ve ever encountered.

Jack: Look, I’ve already spoken to phyllis — in general terms, I never mentioned your name. I told her to ease off on everyone, that we all have our own issues that we have to deal with.

Tara: I don’t think she took your message to heart.

Kyle: And I talked to her this morning. I got the indication that she’s mad that you’re here and summer isn’T. I told her there was no sense in blaming you for summer leaving.

Tara: Well, it sounds like phyllis won’t stop until she’s run harrison and me out of town.

Jack: You know what? I’m gonna deal with this right now.

Ashland: Well, I’m certain that you would handle a sensitive situation with grace and poise, but tara, on the other hand, is only using our son to punish me.

Victoria: Well, I don’t disagree, but, I mean, maybe you could get her to come around by trying a different approach. Find a compromise. You are a world-class negotiator, so negotiate. It would be what’s best for harrison.

Ashland: Why are you so good at this? Getting through to me and changing my perspective?

Victoria: It’s simple. I just respect you enough to tell you the unvarnished, whether you want to hear it or not.

Ashland: Well, that’s refreshing. There was far too much varnish in my marriage.

Victoria: On both sides, no doubt.

Ashland: No doubt. God, I wish I’d met you years ago.

Victoria: You know, I’ve had the same thought. But who knows if the younger versions of ourselves would’ve hit it off or appreciated each other for the right reasons?

Ashland: I can’t imagine any version of myself not falling head over heels for you.

Victoria: Head over heels? That sounds like you’re saying —

Ashland: Something i should’ve said a lot sooner. You just forget all that garbage I said about not letting things go too far between us emotionally. That wasn’t to protect you. It was about protecting myself. I didn’t want to be reminded of how little time I have left or what I’m gonna miss out on. None of that seems to matter now.

Victoria: No, it doesn’T. It just means that we don’t have any time to waste. We have to take advantage of every moment that we have together.

The more we get together

Devon: [ Exhales sharply ] Hey. Why’d you get out of bed? I was gonna bring you a snack since I promised you dinner and we never made it.

Amanda: Yeah, well, that is my own fault. I let myself get distracted.

Devon: It’s the shirt’s fault, actually. Blame it. ‘Cause now that it’s on you and I see it, it is a really nice shirt.

[ Both chuckle ]

Amanda: We can’t let this expensive wine go to waste.

Devon: Oh, we sure can’T. And I noticed that you didn’t hold back when I told you to open something good.

Amanda: You said we were celebrating. Not that I want to talk about the case.

Devon: Well, listen, if it’s on your mind and you do want to talk about it, I’m open for it.

Amanda: [ Sighs ] It is on my mind, despite your best efforts.

[ Chuckles ]

Devon: I understand. I understand. I don’t know how it couldn’t be. It’s — it’s a very big deal to find out who you are and where you came from and how different your life could’ve been.

Amanda: Yeah. I can’t stop thinking about if richard had lived, you know, and he found me and hilary. We could’ve grown up here in genoa city together. He had a good, stable job. I could’ve had a normal middle-class upbringing. And I would’ve grown up to be a completely different person — you know, driven, just not so focused on trying to prove myself.

Devon: Could’ve gone the other direction, too.

Amanda: Yeah, I guess you’re right. Maybe if my father did raise me on his own, I would’ve felt a little more stung when my mother rejected me.

Devon: I was thinking more that if richard had survived, he’d have been able to convince naya to be more involved in her daughters’ lives.

Amanda: I doubt that. Sutton would not have liked that. And the one thing that I’ve learned about naya — she is never gonna stand up to her father.

Tara: I’m relieved that harrison doesn’t seem to be affected by all this stress and suspicion surrounding you and me.

Kyle: Yeah, he’s just a kid playing with his toys, watching his cartoons, impervious to what’s happening. I envy him.

Tara: Well, our toddler seems to be more mature than some of the adults I’ve been dealing with lately.

Kyle: That’s true.

Tara: At least ashland’s illness gives him an excuse for his behavior. Phyllis just seems to like stirring things up wherever she can.

Kyle: It’s more complicated than that. Like my dad, she’s protective, sometimes overly so, of her daughter. I’ve been on her list more than once. It’s not a fun place to be, but in phyllis’ eyes, anything she does for summer’s sake is justified.

Tara: Well, that I get. I mean, there’s nothing i wouldn’t do for our son.

Kyle: Really?

[ Knock on door ]

Tara: [ Sighs ] It’s ashland. What now?

Jack: I got a bone to pick with you. What exactly are you playing at?

Phyllis: I was expecting you. What took you so long? What did tara have to tell you?

Jack: Tara has grown weary of your constant antagonism. Frankly, so have I.

Phyllis: Well, I don’t know what you’re talking about because I’m just seeing a bunch of red flags, and I’m just gathering the data, that’s all. And by the way, when I’m truly antagonistic, tara will know.

Jack: Oh, you’re doing a lot more than gathering information. Did you really steal sally’s phone to send a fake text?

Phyllis: Oh, please, don’t get all bent out of shape on that. Those two little scammers are reacting to every little bit of scrutiny. How come you’re not asking for an explanation from them? How come you’re not interrogating them?

Jack: I got an explanation. Phyllis, you need to back off of tara. I don’t blame her for being put out by all your attacks.

Phyllis: Ohh. Poor, innocent tara. Poor girl. Ask yourself this — why, when she got the text, did she run over here immediately? Why was she arguing with sally in my elevator?

Jack: Why don’t you tell me?

Phyllis: I will tell you — because she’s afraid of getting caught. That’s why. I mean, she’s living large at the abbott mansion, isn’t she? She has new business opportunities, new friends — all because of you and kyle. She doesn’t want to lose that.

Jack: And why would she? And don’t give me insinuation, give me hard facts — real proof.

Phyllis: Well, I can run an investigation until I have proof? That’s not how it works. And by the way, you are turning a blind eye to everything that’s in front of you.

[ Sighs ] Because you want to believe everything that sally and tara are telling you.

Jack: Oh, and what is that?

Phyllis: That I’m wrong. That i am just angry because my daughter left town. I’m the scapegoat here. I swear, those two — those two little girls ran my daughter out of town, and I will get the proof. Believe me, I will get the proof. Why do I not get the benefit of the doubt from you? Why does my daughter not get it? What about your son? Why?

[ Sighs ] Have you even talked to sally about the —

Jack: I was on my way to do that right now.

Phyllis: Okay, well, go do that. Go do that, and don’t let her talk her way out of this.

Jack: I know what you’re suggesting. I resent the insinuation.

Phyllis: Resent it all you want. I brought in ensure max protein,

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Ashland: I’m leaving tonight. I thought you might like to know.

Tara: Where are you going?

Ashland: Victoria and I are headed to new york to meet with the locke communication group executive team.

Kyle: Preparing for the merger?

Ashland: Something like that. I’d like to say goodbye to harrison before I leave.

Tara: I think that would be alright, as long as you don’t mention anything else, like the diagnosis. We still need to discuss how we’re gonna handle that.

Ashland: Well, I’d be willing to revisit that now — privately.

Kyle: I’ll have my phone on me. Call me if you need me.

Tara: I’ll be fine. You seem to have cooled off since last we spoke.

Ashland: Well, I’ve spent some time reflecting and discussing the situation with victoria. She’s helping me see it from a mother’s perspective.

Tara: I hope that means that you’re willing to break the news together.

Ashland: I’d like to explain it to him myself, but I have no objection to you being present. It may help him. He could use his mother’s support, no doubt.

Tara: I can agree to that.

Ashland: There’s something else I wanted to let you know about I’m going to start treatment for my cancer after all. The odds of success are not good, but I’m not willing to surrender, so I’m gonna fight this.

Tara: I’m glad. That’ll give us some hope, and i think that will be especially important for harrison to hear about.

Ashland: I agree. So maybe it was best that we waited till now to tell him. But I really don’t want to postpone it any longer, so can we do this now?

Tara: Okay. I’ll go get him.

Devon: I can only imagine how difficult it was growing up for naya to have a father that’s that manipulative, you know? ‘Cause it’s clearly messed with her head if she’s willing to sacrifice herself by going to damn prison just to protect him.

Amanda: I do think that i could change her attitude on that. But I am not hopeful — you know, her “protect daddy” instinct is pretty ingrained.

Devon: Yeah. You have to give it to her, though. I mean, that’s — from when you first met her, she’s come a long way. She denied that you were even her daughter.

Amanda: She was looking at me the way that sutton does, like a problem, a shameful mistake from the past.

Devon: Yeah, I don’t know about that, though. I don’t know. I think that knowing what we know now, I think naya knows that there’s something wrong with sutton, and she may have been afraid that if she brought you close to the family, you’d see him for who he really was and you’d expose him.

Amanda: Yeah, and that’s exactly what happened.

Devon: I know it is, and that’s my point is that she still made the decision to bring you into the family, and I mean, she — she put you on his legal team.

Amanda: What are you saying? That you think, on some level, naya wanted the truth to come out?

Devon: I don’t know. I don’t know if I’d go that far. I know that she had plenty of opportunities to push you out of their lives for good. She knew what was at stake if she didn’T. She didn’t go that route. She hung on to you. She hung on to her daughter. Which makes me believe that you guys’ relationship, it can heal.

Sally: So, I assume you’re here to discuss what happened. So my only question is, did you hear about it from tara or phyllis?

Jack: I spoke to both of them. Now I want your explanation, and please, please be straight with me.

Sally: I mean, I think it’s pretty obvious what’s going on here. Phyllis has it out for me. She’s trying to turn everyone against me, and not just you, but tara, too, and I have to work with her. I don’t want this to affect my career. Isn’t there anything that you can do to get her to back off?

Jack: I made my feelings quite clear to phyllis. That is not why I’m here. I want you to tell me what you and tara were talking about in the elevator.

Sally: Tara received a text message from my phone, sent by phyllis, and she confronted me and told me that she didn’t want any part of this drama, and i don’t blame her. I don’t want any part of it either, but phyllis is not giving me a choice. I mean, stealing my phone and impersonating me via text? Who does that?

Jack: What did the text say?

Sally: I don’t know. I don’t know, I never saw it. But it was clearly something about phyllis, and that was enough —

Jack: You never saw it?

Sally: Phyllis deleted it from my phone before sneaking it back to me. She is out of control, jack, and I haven’t even mentioned the spying.

Jack: Phyllis sent me the security video from the elevator.

Sally: Oh, my god, that’s so gross.

Jack: Look for yourself. She is clearly showing you the text.

Sally: Okay. Well, I did see it, but it was quick. I just saw that it was from my phone. I didn’t actually read the words. Jack, does it really matter?

Jack: Yes, it matters! It matters that I can’t trust you to tell me the truth. Sally: Jack, please don’t overreact to something so small. If you let phyllis raise these doubts about me, you’re just playing into her hand.

Jack: All I asked for was a simple explanation. You couldn’t give me that.

Sally: I told you the truth. If I can’t recall the exact wording of the text message, it’s because it didn’t matter. What should shock you is that phyllis stole my phone and sent a text in the first place. Your good friend keeps trying to undermine me professionally and personally. You’re okay with that?

Jack: Sally, you’re not helping your case with all these efforts to redirect my attention to phyllis and away from the question at hand.

Sally: Jack —

Jack: It only makes me question what else you’re concealing.

Sally: I’m not hiding anything.

Jack: Oh, god, I actually believe that. At this point, I honestly think it’s instinct on your part to deflect blame. And I can understand that, but I — what I can’t do is build a relationship with someone i can’t completely trust. Look, as much as I’ve enjoyed our time together, I —

Sally: No, jack, just please don’t finish that thought. Okay, let’s just take a step back. We’ll put all this aside and we will go to dinner as we planned. We can get past this. We are so good together.

Jack: I thought so, too. But, you know, as compatible as we are, I can’t shake the feeling we’re always gonna end up right here. You making excuses, me questioning my judgment. I need a lot more than that.

Sally: [ Exhales sharply ]

Ashland: [ Laughs ] There’s my boy! Come over here!

[ Laughs ] You almost fell. Oh, it’s good to see you, buddy boy. Good to see you. Come have a seat. Come have a seat. I just wanted to stop by because I’m taking a trip to new york, and I wanted to see you and tell you a few things. You know, I haven’t been feeling well lately. And in fact, I’ve been feeling kind of yucky.

Harrison: Your heart?

Ashland: [ Chuckles ] No. They fixed my heart a little while ago, but I should know that my smart boy would remember that. This is something different. The doctors fixed the heart, and I’m hoping that they can fix this problem, too.

Tara: They have some of the best doctors in the work in new york.

Ashland: They sure do. And I’m hoping that they can give me some special medicine so that I don’t feel yucky anymore and that I can go hunt frogs and maybe go to a baseball game with my favorite little boy. Who would be…who?

Harrison: Me!

Ashland: That’s right. That is right! ‘Cause I want to spend as much time with you as I can.

Kyle: Hey, victoria. Heard you were going to new york tonight.

Victoria: Hi. Yes, I am. I take it you were at the house when ashland came over to talk to harrison?

Kyle: I just left to give them some privacy. I hope I didn’t make a mistake leaving them alone. Things got pretty volatile the last time they spoke.

Victoria: He’ll be fine. He just didn’t want to leave until the two of them were on better terms.

Kyle: That’d be a nice change in attitude. I guess you get some of the credit for that.

Victoria: Well, we all just want what’s best for that little boy.

Kyle: Tara and I were just saying the same thing. So how much has ashland told you about her?

Victoria: Not a lot. But I know how hurt he was when he found out that harrison was not his biological son.

Kyle: Yeah, she didn’t even tell me she was pregnant. I had no clue ashland was raising my son as his own for years.

Victoria: Well, I guess there’s something that we both know about tara — she’s very good at keeping secrets. I’m sorry, are the two of you rekindling things?

Kyle: No. We’re just living in the same house, co-parenting, so we’re spending a lot of time together, that’s all.

Victoria: Okay, well, be careful. Psoriatic arthritis, made my joints stiff,

Phyllis: Hey, how’d it go?

Jack: None of your business.

Phyllis: That bad, huh?

Jack: You know, I don’t know what’s going on here. I don’t know who’s telling the truth. But one area I agree with sally — you’re enjoying this, aren’t you?

Phyllis: No, I am not. I am not enjoying this at all. I know you like her. I wish I was wrong about sally and tara, but I don’t think i am. Do you?

Jack: All I know is that you will never change.

Phyllis: You say that like it’s a bad thing.

Amanda: Mmm! Cheese, crackers, and ice cream. You really know how to show a girl a good time, huh?

Devon: Well, you can always count on me when you need a good distraction.

Amanda: Yeah, from my ultra-dysfunctional family — my grandfather, the criminal, my mother, who idolizes him, and my father and sister who I will never get a chance to meet.

Devon: Don’t forget about imani. That started off a little rocky, but she’s coming around. I think there’s some real potential with that relationship.

Amanda: You’re always so positive. You always see the good in everything.

Devon: I try to.

Amanda: You know, even when i wanted to walk away from this case, you were just always there encouraging me, making me believe that I could get through it.

Devon: And I was right, too, because you did.

Amanda: Well, thank you for believing in me.

Devon: You never have to thank me for believing in you, amanda. It’s very easy to do when you love somebody. You know I do, right? I love you.

Amanda: I love you, too.

Ashland: Victoria, are you here?

Victoria: In here.

Ashland: Ah.

Victoria: I didn’t expect you back so soon.

Ashland: Here I am. Is this everything?

Victoria: Yes.

Ashland: Are you all set?

Victoria: I’m all set. Here, let me help you with that.

Ashland: No, no, no, I’ve got it. I’m good. I’m great, in fact.

Victoria: Oh, well, then i guess things went really well with harrison.

Ashland: They did. I will fill you in on the way to the airport.

Victoria: I’m so happy for both of you. I ran into kyle earlier at the coffee house, and he told me that he left you and tara alone to talk to him.

Ashland: Yes, he gave us some privacy, which was good of him, and surprising because he’s usually hovering around tara. She’s got him wrapped around her little finger.

Victoria: I’m not so sure about that.

Sally: I thought I was safe to say that I hadn’t seen the text message. I didn’t know phyllis gave the video to him of you showing it to me. God, that bitch.

Tara: Sally, you have got to calm down.

Sally: No, she’s out to ruin my life. I’m losing jack over this.

Tara: I’m sorry that jack is upset, but you got to give it time. Let things calm down.

Sally: I think it’s just too late for that. I mean, I’ve run out of chances with him. And honestly, given how he was acting, I think you’re on thin ice, too.

Tara: Actually, I think everything on my end is fine. I mean, we both gave the same explanation for the elevator conversation. You handled it the best way you could. Thanks for the update.

Steffy: I am so excited to be your wife.

Finn: We’re really doing this.

Steffy: Yes, we are.

Finn: You’re making me a happy man, steffy.

[ Steffy laughing ]

Steffy: We’ve been engaged for so long. And we have a baby, it’s, like, time to make it official.

Finn: Mm, you know who’s gonna be really excited about this?

Steffy: Mm-hmm, our little flower girl?

Finn: Yes, kelly has been talking about our wedding since we got engaged.

Steffy: You know what we need to do? We need to get, like, a–a little baby tuxedo for hayes.

Finn: [ Laughing ] Okay.

Steffy: I am so grateful for what lies ahead.

Finn: Oh, me too.

Steffy: So let’s do this. Let’s get married.

Ridge: Well, dad, you’re at the top of your game.

Brooke: Eric, it’s so spectacular. I love the way it drapes so beautifully across the shoulders.

Eric: Thank you. I’m glad you approve. How does it feel?

Sequoia: Like butter.

Eric: Like butter, see? That’s exactly what I had in mind. Thank you, sequoia. Thanks for coming in today.

Ridge: Oh, dad, you seem inspired.

Eric: Yes, well, since my marriage ended, I’ve… I feel like recommitting to my arts.

Brooke: I can see that. Eric, you seem so free now that you’ve said goodbye to quinn.

Quinn: Well, it was A… little more strongly-worded than “goodbye,” but… you did seem at peace.

Brooke: [ Sighing ] Quinn, what are you doing here?

Quinn: It’s good to see you, eric.

Brooke: You know you’re not allowed in the building. You have very strict orders to stay away–come on, eric, tell her.

Eric: You know you shouldn’t be here. You agreed to work remotely.

Quinn: I know. I know, but apparently, my badge still works, and, well, I wanted to deliver my latest designs to you in person.

Brooke: You know that eric doesn’t want you here. And yet here you are.

Quinn: Eric, can I speak to you alone? I’d rather not stand here being demonized by brooke.

Brooke: No, you absolutely may not.

Ridge: I think you should leave.

Quinn: Eric?

Brooke: I’m calling security.

Eric: Give us a few moments.

Brooke: Eric, don’t let her do this, she’s trying to get under your skin.

Eric: I can handle it, brooke. It’ll be all right.

Brooke: I really hope this is the last time that we have to put up with you. Can’t wait till you’re out of eric’s life for good.

Ridge: Okay. We’ll be right next door if you need us.

Brooke: Yeah.

Eric: What is this? Is this another apology?

Quinn: No. It’s not. That’s not why I’m here.

Eric: So why are you here? What do you want, quinn? I brought in ensure max protein,

Brooke: We have to do everything we can to stop quinn from working her way back into eric’s life.

Carter: I’m sorry, I thought the office was empty.

Ridge: No worries, brooke and I are just here temporarily, come on in.

Brooke: [ Sighing] Hopefully not for much longer.

Ridge: The big office is taken. By eric and an uninvited guest.

Brooke: Quinn.

Carter: Wait, quinn? I thought she was not allowed. Did eric ask to see her?

Brooke: No, of course not. She just waltzed her way into the building.

Carter: I can’t imagine that went well.

Brooke: [ Laughing] She’s so predictable. And eric is so polite. I would’ve kicked her out by now.

Carter: What, he didn’t?

Ridge: He didn’T.

Brooke: Eric is alone with quinn right now.

Eric: Now that you’re here, we can talk about the divorce.

Quinn: Do we have to?

Eric: Is this about your designs? I’m sure they’re wonderful as always.

Quinn: Thank you. I appreciate that. I really do. And I want to continue challenging myself with my work. Remotely, of course.

Eric: The only way you can work at forrester.

Quinn: I know. I’m actually enjoying my new setup.

Eric: Well, I’ve yet to hear from your attorney.

Quinn: Well, you’ll be waiting a long time because I haven’t hired one.

Eric: You haven’t hired a lawyer?

Quinn: No. Whatever the settlement is, I’ll take it.

Eric: Surprised to hear that.

Quinn: I’ve never wanted your money, eric. I was a single working mother for years, I’ve been successful on my own. I can take care of myself.

Eric: I’ve never doubted that.

Quinn: And I’ve never doubted your sense of fairness. I’ve really appreciated your generosity over the years. It was your inability to defend me… that became a point of contention and concern for me. In every situation, you sided with brooke and your family over me.

Steffy: Look at you. You’re everything I hoped for and more.

Finn: Now you’re giving me a lot to live up to.

Steffy: Well, when I’m right, I’m right.

Finn: Mm, I have a feeling that you’re going to be telling me that a lot over the next few decades.

Steffy: Yeah, that’s correct.

Finn: Honey, you’ve given me so much. The most incredible gift, our son, our sweet hayes. And now we’re about to get married.

Steffy: Mm-hmm. It’s gonna be so special. Celebrating our commitment to each other in front of our friends and our family. Actually, we should start planning, what are we gonna do? Are we gonna get a dj or a band, like… honestly, I don’t–I don’t care where or how we do it. I just want our family to be there. And our little hayes gets to know his other grandparents. And I get to meet your parents.

Finn: [ Chuckling ]

 

Brooke: It’s obvious why quinn is here. She’s trying to play on eric’s big forgiving heart.

Ridge: I think she has realized by now that ship has sailed.

Brooke: You really need to push this divorce forward. The less time she has to influence him, the better. I’m not making you uncomfortable, am I, carter?

Ridge: Brooke. Why would you think that? Talking about an affair he had with the boss’s wife? The biggest mistake he’s ever made–why do you think it would make him feel uncomfortable? It doesn’t, does it?

Finn: A little bit.

Ridge: Of course it does. Give him a break. He put a stop to it.

Brooke: Well, thank god. You’re saving yourself a lot of heartache, trust me. I realize that was the agreement you had with eric, but… I’m glad that you came to your senses, and you ended it with her. You told her you wanted nothing to do with her. I just hope that’s what eric is doing right now.

Quinn: I apologized to you over and over again. I begged and pleaded for your forgiveness, but you… you refused to forgive me.

Eric: I did. Not this time, quinn, not this time.

Quinn: I’m not justifying my actions.

Eric: You can’T. There’s no excuse for turning to another man.

Quinn: Well, if only you could’ve met me halfway. I tried so hard to get close to you again, to be… intimate with you. But you just… you just kept shutting me down. You couldn’t get over it. My role in… ridge and shauna’s wedding. You hated the fact that I went against your… your precious brooke. A woman who has been campaigning for my removal since day one.

Eric: I hated that you betrayed ridge. And I hated that you betrayed me.

Quinn: I took responsibility for my actions. And I tried… to win back your faith in me. I tried and I tried, but you… you were having none of it. And then you gave brooke carte blanche to vilify me day after day after day. I’m your wife. Why is it… that you couldn’t excuse me when you have absolved so many others over the years? Thomas… shauna… brooke, I don’t even know how many times, all your ex-wives. Everyone but me. Why is that, eric? Why couldn’t you find it in your heart… to forgive me?

Finn: When you say you don’t wanna put this off, you mean it.

Steffy: Has the grin on my face convinced you yet?

Finn: [ Chuckling ] It’s a pretty adorable grin.

Steffy: We got a good thing. When I think about all this, it really makes me emotional, you know? Because we’re doing this together. Blending our families. You know what we need to do? We really need to pick a date so everyone’s there.

Finn: Okay.

Steffy: Where are your parents living? Like, are they in california? You haven’t really told me, and I didn’t wanna pry because you didn’t say anything, but I’m really excited to meet your parents.

Finn: Yeah, no, and I… I know they’re gonna love you just as much as I do. But, uh, I mean, do we have to schedule and… make plans right now? I just wanna enjoy you. You know? And… savor this moment with my soon-to-be wife.

Steffy: Take advantage. Baby’s sleeping.

Finn: You read my mind.

Steffy: Mm-hmm.

Finn: How is it possible? I think you’ve gotten more beautiful… and sexy… since you begged me to marry you.

Steffy: [ Laughing] I did not.

Finn: Yeah. Most bladder leak pads were similar.

Ridge: Well, we’re talking your ear off. Why don’t you get some work done?

Brooke: Yeah, we know you’re busy, carter, but really, we hope you find time in your very-busy schedule to push this divorce forward. And the sooner the better.

Carter: Is it love? Is it lust?

Quinn: I think it’s just us. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Eric: I did forgive you, quinn. I was in our home ready to renew our vows when I found out that you and carter were… having an affair.

Quinn: You’re right. I made a mistake. But I refuse to be defined by that mistake. I turned to carter for a reason.

Eric: So you’ve said.

Quinn: Eric, when two people make vows to each other… sometimes… they’re going to face… certain obstacles in that relationship. And they have to be there for each other, they have to attend to each other’s needs. Mine included. I know I hurt you, eric, but I’m done apologizing. Because you took brooke’s word over everyone’S. Including mine. I made a mistake. A big mistake. But you should’ve defended me. And you didn’T. Like earlier. Brooke was standing here, talking down to me, and you did nothing. You said nothing. Like you always have.

Eric: I defended you to everyone I knew in my life. I stood up for you from the very beginning.

Quinn: When? Huh? Where was I when this happened? Because I didn’t feel protected. I didn’t feel particularly cared for. I promise you, there is nothing worse than living with someone who gives you the cold shoulder. Being stuck in a marriage that’s lacking warmth and intimacy. I own my mistakes, eric. But in the end, I’m walking away from this marriage knowing I gave it everything I had. You know, I… I tried. Tried to conform to being the matriarch. The… ohh, the upstanding member of the forrester family, but you know what? Hey… hah, maybe I’m just not cut out… for being queen and having my portrait hanging above the fireplace. But that’s okay. Because I need to be true to myself. And for the first time in a long time, that’s exactly what I’m doing. And I’m proud of the woman I’m becoming.

Finn: Hayes is still sleeping?

Steffy: Amelia’s out with kelly.

Finn: Let’s go to the bedroom–

Steffy: No-no-no, no-no-no, hayes is sleeping in there. He’s still sleeping in there.

Finn: Oh, that’s right, I don’t wanna scar him for life.

Steffy: It could be here.

Finn: Your parents could walk through that door any minute.

Steffy: Oh, yeah, she could. Okay. Maybe it’s not the right time.

Finn: Okay… all right. We’re just gonna wait.

Steffy: Mm-hmm, yeah. Can you?

[ Both laughing ]

Finn: After several cold showers.

[ Both laughing ]

Steffy: Oh, I can’t get enough of you.

Finn: Believe me. Look at you, this is taking… all my self-control.

[ Both laughing ]

Steffy: We do have the rest of our lives.

[ Both sighing ]

Finn: That’s true.

Steffy: Uh-huh.

Finn: Yes. We… we’re tough, we can–

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: We can survive–

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: –A couple hours.

Steffy: Yeah, a couple hours. Okay, we should start planning for the wedding? Okay, what do we want? We want… gotta figure out the grooms. Where’s my pen? Brides–bridesmaids. We gotta figure it all– we have to figure it out.

Finn: Look, I know how important it is for you to do this right.

Steffy: Yeah, I want to. It’s–it’s our wedding. I want it to be perfect.

Finn: All I wanna do is marry you. All right? And give you everything that you want, but, you know, weddings, they just–they take time. There’s all that planning, and you pick a color scheme.

Steffy: Uh-huh?

Finn: You’ve always been a free spirit. Rule-breaker.

Steffy: [ Laughing ]

Finn: Let’s just break the rules. You know… not do a traditional thing. We’ll do the… the unexpected.

Steffy: Are you trying to get a quickie wedding again?

Finn: Yeah, why not?

Steffy: Baby… I adore your enthusiasm, but… I want my family there. And I want the opportunity to meet yours. I want to meet your parents. They made you who you are. I can’t wait to meet your mom and dad.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Well, I guess it’s time — I have to take these off.

[ Breathes sharply ] Only — only if you’re ready. I’m not. But it has to be done.

[ Sighs ]

[ Voice breaking ] I miss him. Yeah, I miss him, too. Carly: It’s beautiful. Hey. Hey! Oh, I’m sorry I’m late. I had some last-minute business, um, repairing potholes. Oh, well, you can’t talk too much about potholes.

[ Laughs ] I beg to differ.

[ Laughs ] But I didn’t come here to talk about business. I came here to celebrate your engagement to jason. Oh! Yeah, I just saw that the bartender set aside a bottle of our best champagne for you. That is not necessary. It absolutely is. Think about it — all the bad news that we had to put up with this year. It’s very important to celebrate the good times. Yes. [ Laughs ] I agree with the mayor. And please let me offer my congratulations. When’s the wedding date so I can put it in my calendar? I’ve already ordered us drinks. Ooh. Nonalcoholic. Just because I’m pregnant doesn’t mean that you have to abstain. I don’t have to abstain. I want to. I want to go through everything that you’re going through. You’ll share my labor pains, too? Yeah! I would if I could. Or is — is that too weird and stalkerish? Uh, from anyone else, yeah, kind of. From you… not in the least.

[ Chuckles ] Good. And, um, just so you know, I told carly that I’m not interested in working in sonny’s business. How’d she react? Relieved, I think. Yeah, but mostly happy that you and I have gotten together. Carly likes you a lot. I like carly a lot. When I was using, she, uh… really tried to help me. She was kind and supportive. But you still don’t want our baby anywhere near the corinthos business. Nor the baby’s father. Okay. So, two of your wishes have come true. What’s your third wish? To know where we go from here? Okay. Sparkling green tea infused with mango, specialty of the house. This is good! My mom’s idea. She wanted the nonalcoholic drinks to be just as good as the ones with booze. Mmm! This is so nice, so relaxing. Sometimes. You know, without spencer lurking around. He’s not so bad. Mm. He can be. Proceed with caution. Oh, my god. You sound like me talking to my mom. She told you to proceed with caution? Well, i almost did. My mom’s seeing someone. Like, dating him? Yep. And it’s the first time my mom’s ever been serious enough about a guy, other than my dad, to tell me about it. I can’t believe this is real. We’re really together. We are together.

[ Laughs ] Which is why I was able to tell trina. I mean, do you know what a huge deal that is? I’ve never spoken to trina about any man that I was seeing. Why’s that? Because no one was important enough. You wanted to see me? Yeah, I got your report on david hopkins, the medevac pilot. Yeah, we got some good info from anna. I’ve been going over the security footage from the, uh, hospital from the day the, uh, pilot tried to pick up peter from the roof. Any luck? No. Cyrus’ people disabled all the cameras from the stairwell leading to the rooftop. So, no update on peter’s potential accomplice? Mnh. Anna said the chopper pilot’s description was a bit vague. Yeah, I read that in your report. Did anna tell you what she’s doing to follow up? You ready? It’s empty. It’s impossible. Eh… I put peter’s body in here myself. Okay, you need to be really honest with me. Who else knows about this? Finn and I put peter in the freezer ourselves. If finn moved the body, he would have told me. Maybe it was anna. Maybe she found out. Somebody would have seen her. The cameras weren’t disabled until a few minutes before I made it down to the basement. Unless anna figured out a way around the cameras. I saw them together in finn’s office. The way they looked — I think finn was telling anna he killed peter. Alright, guys, no insurance talk on beach day. -I’m down. -Yes, please.

[ Chuckles ] Don’t get me wrong, I love my rv, but insuring it is such a hassle. Same with my boat. The insurance bills are through the roof. -[ Sighs ] -Be cool. I wish I could group my insurance stuff. -[ Coughs ] Bundle. -The house, the car, the rv. Like a cluster. An insurance cluster. -Woosah. -[ Chuckles ] -I doubt that exists. -It’s a bundle! It’s a bundle, and it saves you money! Hi. I’m flo from progressive, and I couldn’t help but overhear… super fun beach day, everybody. Your mission: Stand up to moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. And take. It. On… with rinvoq. Rinvoq a once-daily pill can dramatically improve symptoms… rinvoq helps tame pain, stiffness, swelling. And for some, rinvoq can even significantly reduce ra fatigue. That’s rinvoq relief. With ra, your overactive immune system attacks your joints. Rinvoq regulates it to help stop the attack.

Rinvoq can lower your abil ity

including tuberculosis.

Serious infections and

Maybe because it feels like life is changing so fast, and I just want her to stay the same. I know what you mean. I mean, we’re going to college soon, and it seems like our moms are taking advantage of our new lives to start new lives of their own. Your mom is marrying jason. And your mom’s getting serious about dating. It’s hard seeing my mom other than a mom and a doctor. Maybe that’s partly why I’m so confused. What’s the other part? I think it’s the man my mom is seeing. What’s that look about? You know, I’m just touched that you told trina about me. But I’m also surprised. Why? Uh, because I know that trina’s happiness is your priority. Mm, thank you. Mm-hmm. But I gotta know — what was her reaction? Trina admitted that she felt a little weird — her word… okay. …Talking about it. But in the end, she says she just wants to see me happy. Alright. So, if her reaction about the news had been different, would I be sitting here right now? Probably not.

[ Laughs ] That’s fair.

[ Laughing ] Yeah, I know. But I would have done my best to convince her, you know, to see the man that I see. And we know how convincing you can be when you want to be. And don’t you ever forget it. That said… when you’re ready, can I convince you and trina to let me treat you to dinner? Oh. Okay, thanks for letting me know. I’ll handle it personally. That was monica quartermaine. Some of the security cameras at G.H. Are down again. What, the ones that were just fixed? Afraid so. Well, cyrus is in jail. That means, uh, his network is still intact. Maybe they want to continue to operate out of the hospital. Let’s go. There is no way anna and finn made it to the basement before me. But I’m sure finn was telling anna everything when I barged into his office. I even gave him an excuse to leave, and he didn’t take me up on it. Right. No, I-I heard your — I heard your voicemail, but I was already on my way down to the freezer. We would have crossed paths. Okay, so if somebody else found the body and stole it, then why haven’t they contacted finn or me? I-I don’t know. Maybe somebody’s trying to protect you. Peter had a lot of enemies. There’d be a lot of people very glad that he’s dead. Glad enough to be our guardian angel? To cover up finn pushing peter down the stairs? Elizabeth, there’s hundreds of people coming in and out of this hospital every day. It’s possible somebody stepped in. Well, is there a way to find out? There is.

[ Groans ] I already told you, no one else knows that I killed peter and put his body in the freezer. Someone could have seen you without you knowing. Maybe. Maybe. Even if I was watched, why would someone move his body? To protect you? Wouldn’t they tell me? It depends who this person is. There is, of course, another explanation. Which is? Well, are you absolutely certain that peter was dead? If you were granting me the “where do we go from here?” Wish, I’d say I want to spend more time with you. You think we should get to know each other better before the baby arrives? That would help with co-parenting, don’t you think?

[ Cellphone chimes ] Am I keeping you from something? Ah, no, I, uh… I set a reminder on my phone to go check for apartments. My studio is so tiny, even i can barely fit into it, never mind adding a baby. Mm. Which reminds me, I need to baby-proof my apartment for when you and the baby come over. A-and maybe someday the three of us will move in together. N-no pressure. The three of us, as in you, me, and our baby? Or you, me, and gladys? Jason and I have not set a date yet, so invitations are not an issue. Mm. Well, I-I hope they won’t be where I’m concerned. Remember, sonny — may he rest — was my dear cousin. And my dear friend. Yeah. Yeah, so then you realize he’d want people at the wedding who remember him fondly, instead of dancing on his grave. Gladys, you will not be on the guest list.

Yes, like a successful garage to run. Not as successful as the family business. Okay, that’s enough. Come on. Sasha’s waiting. Oh, my god.

[ Laughs ] I’m so sorry. Oh, my god. I’m sorry you had to listen to all that. I mean, brando’s a sweetheart. That’s the only reason I don’t have her thrown out of my restaurant. Mm. How do you feel about what she said? What, when gladys said I was dancing on sonny’s grave? Just gladys — petty, nasty, and dead wrong. Can you be free of hair breakage worries?

Then I realized my dad wasn’t actually dead, so I had to take a step back to apologize to curtis and reassess. And that was before curtis saved me and my mom from cyrus renault, so it’s already completely complicated. And now on top of everything, he’s dating my mom. Well, do you think that’s why your mom and he got together? Because of what happened when renault took you guys hostage? I think that’s part of it, but I suspect it started before then. For a while, I thought my mom was the reason that commissioner ashford and curtis split up. So, dr. Quartermaine said that there was an issue with the new security measures that she put in place, specifically the cameras installed in the stairwells leading up to the roof and the hallways in the basement. I thought it was best to let dr. Quartermaine know so she could bring in the pcpd in case renault’s people are involved again. How do we access the hospital’s basements? This way. I love that you want to get to know my daughter better, and I promise you that I’m gonna take you up on that offer… after we spend a little bit more time together, get a little bit more comfortable. And after you… after I tell jordan about us, of course. I know speaking with her is not gonna be easy. That’s not what worries me. Then what is? Exactly how much did you tell trina about you and me? Did you mention that we had an affair while you were still married to her father? How’s my grandchild? You taking good care of him or her? Of course. This baby is my number-one priority. Mm. Like — like brando is mine.

[ Chuckles ] You know, if my grandchild is anything like his dad, you be prepared for changing lots and lots of diapers. Mom, what? I’m prepared. And I am sure brando will be prepared, too. Right. Of course. But, um, you know, you and the baby can’t move in with us. There’s no room. Actually, mom, I wanted to talk to you about that. I think it’s time you moved out. You and jason are planning a future together, and that is something to celebrate. Thank you. Mm-hmm. Mm. You don’t think it’s too soon after sonny, do you? Oh, come on, now, carly, don’t let gladys get to you. I’m not. I’m not. I mean, I know — I know gladys makes anyone a target. I get that. You know, I have to admit that when I heard that you two were engaged, I was a little surprised, too. You wanted to know how, so soon after sonny’s death? Carly, I’m not passing judgment on you.

[ Sighs ] I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I know that. It’s — it’s not you.

[ Chuckles ] And it’s not gladys. It’s me. Spinelli confirmed that he disengaged the cameras in the stairwells leading to the roof and the stairwells below the parking garage. So, hospital security couldn’t see you taking the elevator to the sub-basement. Or entering it, either. And when I didn’t find peter’s body in the freezer, I had spinelli check the footage to see if anybody was heading down to the basement before the cameras were disabled. And? I mean, did he see someone?

[ Cellphone chimes ] It’s spinelli. He’s got an answer. I imagine that things were moving really fast, and could you have been mistaken about peter’s death? I think I’d know if somebody was dead. Yeah, okay, so conditions were less than ideal. Chase was in a critical condition. You needed to move peter’s body before it was discovered. You wouldn’t be the first doctor to make a mistake.

[ Footsteps approaching ] Anna? Finn? What are you doing down here? Oh, hey, sorry to catch you off guard. Um, I just was following up on what we talked about. Dante: Right. Uh, well, we got a call from dr. Quartermaine. Some of the security cameras in the stairwells and corridors leading to this sub-basement were also turned off. -Oh. -Now it’s your turn. What are you doing down here?

I went by one night a little while ago. I saw curtis’ stuff in boxes waiting for him to pick them up. But I had a good talk with commissioner ashford, and she said the reason she and curtis split up was because she kept too many secrets. So my mom had nothing to do with it. So you have nothing to worry about. I don’t know. I still feel bad for commissioner ashford, especially after I went to curtis’ nightclub right after. Why? What happened? Curtis was taking off his wedding band… with my mom’s help. That’S…strange. I know! And I told ava, and she said not to worry. But now that my mom and curtis are dating, I can’t shake the feeling that they’ve been involved… earlier. Well, how much earlier? That’s what’s freaking me out. What if curtis cheated on commissioner ashford with my mom? No, I definitely did not tell trina that you and I were a thing when I was married to her father. That would break her heart. Okay, but trina forgave taggert for faking his own death, right?

If she can handle that, then maybe she can handle this. Look, I-I understand how you feel about secrets, and I’m usually right there with you. I get it. But how is this something trina needs to know? Portia, what if our history blows up in our faces? Secrets come out. Just ask jordan. You’re kicking me out? You put my son up to this, didn’t you? No, it was my idea. Okay, mom? I need the second bedroom for the baby. Is sasha moving in, too? We’re not ready for that yet. But there will be times when the baby stays overnight with brando. And can sleep in his room. You’re gonna need my help for changing diapers and getting up for late-night feedings. I think I can handle that. The baby needs a nursery, though, which means you need to find a place to live. You can’t afford to pay my rent, especially since you won’t be working for jason and carly, which is where the real money is. I’m not going to be paying your rent, okay? You will. How do you expect me to do that? The same way everybody else does — by getting a job. Are you having second thoughts? Uh, no, not at all. I mean, jason and i made this decision together, and we’re committed. You know, there’s no one else I’d rather spend my life with. Well, I can think of one other person. I loved sonny for so long. You know, I, um… I still do. I miss him so much, laura. I think about him a thousand times a day. Sometimes I start to text him a picture of donna, or I wake up thinking I heard him climb into bed next to me. Of course. Of course you do. Love do-doesn’t go away overnight. Oh, jason gets that. You know, he does. He’s grieving for sonny, too. Yeah. Listen, carly, a part of you will always be with sonny, and he with you. And that’s okay. It really is. And it’s only natural that the friendship that you have with jason would develop into something more now that he’s gone. Spinelli saw nothing on the security footage that would indicate that anyone took the elevator down to the lab before I did. Cyrus had the cameras turned off when he was head of G.H. There was no surveillance when finn confronted peter on the roof and pushed him down the stairs. Or when you and finn put peter’s body in the freezer. And then the camera stays off for the next several weeks. There’s no way to know who took peter’s body. Well, like I-I told you, dante, um, david hopkins, the chopper pilot — he was supposed to pick peter up from the roof. Yeah, I let, uh, jordan know. Yeah, someone else was on the roof with peter. Right. So, I thought I’d retrace peter steps, because we know he wasn’t picked up by the helicopter. Took me to the roof, and then I found the abandoned elevator shaft, came down here to the sub-basement. I was vaguely familiar with this place. Dr. Finn? How did you get involved? I saw anna on her way up to the roof, and when she told me what she was doing, I offered to help. I thought maybe I could find some… hidden exit that peter used. Dante: Hey, jordan. What is it? Blood.

[ Scoffs ] Oh, you mean slingin’ hash, sellin’ perfume at department stores, cleaning houses? It was honest work, ma. It was hard work. Sometimes mike would hit the right pony and send a few bucks my way just so I could put food on the table and not send you to school in torn shirts. I know. And I appreciate that. And didn’t I send you money when I was in the military? Before you told everyone brando was dead? Okay, look, the point is, my kid deserves the best life that sasha and i can give them. And that means turning the spare bedroom into a nursery and filling it with a crib and toys and a changing table. Well — well — okay. Where am i supposed to live? And who would even hire me? I’m not as young as I used to be.

I will hire you, gladys. Work at deception. I guess I just haven’t gotten used to the idea that I’m marrying my best friend. Kevin was my friend long before we fell in love. Those are the best marriages. Okay, well, did your friendship change after you got married? If anything, we just got closer, you know, because we started out as friends. Kevin gave me this amazing sense of stability, you know, that no matter how crazy life got, and it did, I knew that kevin would be there to catch me if I fell. And we can disagree, you know, and we still like each other, and — and we respect each other. We work well together.

[ Chuckles ] We complement each other, you know? And over time, our feelings for each other just deepened. You’re very lucky, laura. I am. I give thanks every day for kevin. I don’t know how I would have gotten through this tragedy with lulu without him. When I was a kid, I used to think my parents were perfect. But then I grew up, and I realized they make mistakes just like everybody else. Do you think my mom lied to me about when she started seeing curtis? I don’t know your mom like you do. I mean, does it seem like something she’d do? Blow up someone else’s marriage? My mom’s not like that. Then she probably didn’T. You’re right. It’s just unsettling because if something sketchy was happening, and curtis could do that to commissioner ashford, he could turn around and do it to my mom. Yeah, but at the end of the day, I mean, your mom and curtis are adults. What they do is their business, not yours. Wrong. The secrets that jordan kept from you have nothing to do with what I choose or don’t choose to tell my daughter. I respectfully disagree. See, secrets are alike in one pivotal way. They’re like — they’re like ticking time bombs, and they’re ready to explode, hurting everyone that’s close to them. There’s already too many people who know about the affair that we had while you were still married to taggert. Marcus would never, ever tell trina, and neither would jordan. And I know your aunt stella likes to stick her nose where doesn’t belong, but I don’t even think that she would want to hurt trina in that way. Okay. I know laura wouldn’t say anything. But when this many people know about a secret, it’s bound to get out, intentional or not. I’m really surprised you’re not worried about this. And I’m surprised how hard you’re pushing me to go against my better judgment…

[ Sighs ] …And tell my daughter something that — that serves no purpose and that I don’t think she should know. Hold on. Are we having a fight? Not very much. Yeah, well, we’ll get forensics in here. If peter made his way down here from the roof, he could be hurt. Or did he hurt the person that he was on the roof with? Check the corridor, see if there’s any other evidence. Yeah, you check the west side of the sub-basement. I’ll check the east. Will do. Hey, this is officially a crime scene, so don’t touch anything. Oh. We already did. Yeah, we were in such a rush that neither finn or i thought to glove up. So you’ll just — you’ll have to tell forensics to account for our fingerprints and dna. I’ll let them know.

[ Footsteps receding ] Thanks for covering for me. But what happens to you if jordan finds out you’re withholding information? The camera was off for weeks after peter disappeared. I mean, anybody could have made it to the basement without being seen. That’s the point, jason. Nobody goes down there. Most people don’t know the sub-basement even exists. It’s not even on the hospital floor plans.

[ Sighs ] Okay, just take me through what happened again. Alright? Not — just what you saw, not what finn told you. I just need to know everything that you remember. Okay. I was worried about finn. When I got to the 10th floor stairwell, I found peter’s body lying on the landing. Elizabeth: Peter? He was bleeding from the back of his head, and it was obvious that he had fallen. So I went to check his pulse, couldn’t find one. Can you hear me? I looked up, and I saw finn standing in the doorway to the roof, and then he came down the stairs. Peter was dead. Finn couldn’t risk a police investigation while chase was critical.

[ Sighs ] And that’s when I remembered the elevator on the roof that goes straight down to helena’s lab. So we dragged peter’s body… up to the roof and into the elevator and… down to the lab, and put him in the freezer. And then I went back to the stairwell to clean up the blood and make it look like nothing ever happened. Okay, you sure you checked peter’s pulse? Yes! There was no pulse. He wasn’t breathing! Okay, what about finn? Did he check peter’s pulse? I think so. I — honestly, I don’t remember. I don’t — I don’t know. Why? Maybe he wasn’t dead. Of course he was dead, jason. Finn and I know what dead looks like. You guys were panicked, and you were rushed. Maybe you made a mistake. So you think peter climbed his way out of the freezer and just walked away? Either that or someone saw you and finn put peter in the freezer, and somebody came and took his body. I think anna and finn may have some answers, so I’m calling finn. Don’t worry about me. They believe that peter’s still alive, and with no body, there’s no evidence of a crime. Except for this blood. They can’t connect that to you. So we just let them assume that peter’s alive. We can’t be sure he’s not. At philadelphia, we know what makes the perfect schmear of cream cheese. You need only the freshest milk and cream. That one! And the world’s best, and possibly only, schmelier. Philadelphia. Schmear perfection. Hey, it’s me…your skin. Some cleansers get us clean – but take my moisture.

You would be answering phones, helping with scheduling, handling e-mail. Mm. That sounds tedious. Mom. Gladys, what do you think of when you think of deception?

[ Sputters ] Glamour, beauty, uh, perfect women. And that is what people will think of you when they hear that you’re working for the company. They will know that you have a glamorous job dealing with beautiful people. They will be in awe of you, knowing that you are part of deception’s world. Um… can I have free makeup, all the products? Of course. Then I’ll take it. But the first person who asks me to make coffee — will be told to make their own coffee.

[ Laughs ] When michael was a baby, all I wanted was to marry jason. And now I’m actually marrying him. I know it’s the right thing for me and my family. I do. Why do you sound so unconvinced, carly? Because I’d just — I’d like to — I’d like to think that sonny would approve of my marrying jason. Or is that just wishful thinking? Something I tell myself to feel better about moving on so soon after sonny’s passing? Oh, honey. I know that sonny just adored you, and I believe that he would understand. In fact, I think that he would be grateful that jason is there to look after you. With no body and a potential blood trail, we have to at least consider the possibility that peter is still alive. Maybe you want to believe that because it exonerates me or, at the very least, reduces the charges. The only thing that you can be certain of is that you put him in this freezer, and he’s not there. Mm. So we have to figure out what happened to him. Where do we even begin? That is the question of the hour. I think we divide and conquer. I’ll take the police, and you go and find elizabeth. She clearly wanted to say something to you when she interrupted our conversation earlier. Okay. Okay. Anna. Thank you. Finn and I have been torturing ourselves ever since this happened, afraid to leave peter’s body in the freezer in case somebody finds him, unable to move it, and… what if we’ve been worrying all this time for nothing? What if somebody actually came in and moved the body the minute we left the lab? It’s the best thing that could happen. Peter’s gone. No body, nothing to cover up. It’s like it never happened. Right.

[ Knock on door ] Finn: Elizabeth, it’s me. I got your message. Hey. Oh! It’s okay. Jason knows everything. So does anna. Well, then, did you find the body? Did you move it? There was no body. There was nothing in the freezer. It was empty. And the pcpd are investigating. Do they know? Anna covered for me. What about elizabeth? I left her out of it. No one knows you were involved. Anna. I’ve called in my top crime-scene investigators and forensic specialists to investigate what happened down here. What about the k-9 unit? They were my first call. Hey. Found something.

Nucala is a once-monthly

add-on injection for severe eosinophilic asthma.

Not for sudden

breathing problems.

Allergic reactions can occur.

Get help right away for

swelling of face, mouth,

tongue, or trouble breathing.

Infections that can cause

shingles have occurred.

Don’t stop steroids unless

told by your doctor.

Tell your doctor if you

have a parasitic infection.

May cause headache,

injection-site reactions,

back pain, and fatigue.

Ask your doctor about nucala. Find your nunormal with nucala. Must go prepare for my new life.

[ Chuckles ] Sasha, you won’t regret hiring me. See you at home. Bravo, ms. Gilmore.

[ Door closes ] Bravo. You deserve the gold medal in handling gladys corbin. That — that — that takes years of hard practice. What — do you know what you got yourself into? Keeping your mom busy and out of our lives. Now we can finally have some privacy before the baby comes. Yeah, before our lives explode into a million pieces of joy mingled with dirty diapers.

[ Laughs ] I think the joy will outweigh the dirty diapers. I’m counting on it. So, what are you going to do about your mom and curtis? Well, first thing on the list is keeping an eye on curtis, and if he isn’t treating my mom right, he will know pain, and a lot of it. Well, I almost feel sorry for that man. Remind me to never get on your bad de. I can’t think of any situation where that would

ever happen. Same here. No, we’re not having a fight. We’re having a disagreement, and it’s over. Okay, well, fight or disagreement, I just don’t want you mad at me. Trina’s anger was scary enough. Oh, where do you think she got it from?

[ Both laugh ] Do you want to have some more wine? Well, now, that just depends on you. Um… why don’t we save the wine till after you speak with jordan and after our first official date? Mm. And what does that date look like to you? Well, definitely dinner, some candlelight, a little bit of soft music, and we’ll see where the night takes us from there. Found more blood in the corridor. How much? If it belongs to peter august, he’s hurt pretty bad. Well, we’ll find out. I just told anna I’m throwing everything at this. What’s your first step? Finding the man who was on the roof with peter. You know, I-I do think sonny would approve of my marrying jason. But it doesn’t make you miss him any less. No.

[ Sighs ] No, it doesn’T. You know, the thing about marriage is that it’s not a sprint, you know? I-it’s definitely a long-distance race that’s made up of a million different moments shared between two people, big and small. I personally think it’s a huge advantage to go into that with someone you already know and you trust. You know? Yeah. [ Chuckles ] And I think over time, jason will just take more and more of your heart. That’s how it was for kevin and me.

[ Sighs ] Thank you for keeping me off jordan’s radar. Of course. I think anna suspects someone helped me move the body, but she’s keeping quiet, and the police believe peter’s alive, so we have that working for us. What do you think? I mean, as long as the cops don’t know you guys put peter’s body in that freezer, I think you’re off the hook… for now.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Jack: I’d like an order of white lilies surrounded by blue hydrangeas. Yeah, I want it to be stunning. I’m going for the “wow” factor that matches the woman they’re being delivered to. Perfect. Thanks.

Lauren: Wow. Who’s the lucky lady? Do I know her?

Jack: As a matter of fact, you know her well. Sally and I are giving it another shot.

Lauren: Oh. Uh… [ Chuckles ] I’m a bit surprised.

Jack: Do you think it’s a mistake?

Sally: Well, I found three more erroneous charges on my bill. This is getting ridiculous.

Phyllis: Ugh. Listen, I am so sorry. Whoever is responsible for this will get an earful from me.

Sally: You’re the boss. Doesn’t the buck stop with you?

Phyllis: You’re right. I am in control.

[ Clears throat ] So, sally, uh, just go ahead and after you’re done marking off the charges that aren’t yours, put them in charge in this folder, and I’ll take care of it.

Sally: Well, good, because i am not paying for one cent of any of these.

Phyllis: You’re right. You will only be paying for what you are responsible for. I promise you that.

Kyle: So…tell me more about what went down with ashland.

Tara: Well, he sees me as the enemy. I tried to plead with him, appeal to his sense of compassion, but it was futile. I mean, thankfully jack came home in the middle of our conversation before things could get too heated. Ashland seemed to ease off a little bit in jack’s presence, but I could still see the fury behind his eyes. I just feel like he is weaponizing telling harrison the truth, and that now it is this ticking time bomb.

Kyle: That’s not right. How do you want to handle things moving forward? Are you gonna let ashland talk to harrison alone like you said he wanted?

Tara: We can’t wait for him to be reasonable ’cause it’s never going to happen. I think I should tell harrison with you by my side.

Kyle: Oh, won’t that only make ashland angrier?

Tara: I don’t know, but i just — I feel really helpless right now, and I’m worried about what ashland is gonna do next, and I just — I really want to be proactive.

Kyle: Okay. I know you have harrison’s best interests at heart, but I think sharon had the right idea. Her professional opinion made sense to me — that you and ashland should break the news to harrison alone. I mean, this is the most important conversation you’ll ever have with him. There’s no need to rush it.

Tara: Maybe you’re right. You are probably seeing things a little more clearly than I am. And I am very grateful that i have you to talk everything through with.

Kyle: This is about all of us. So we’re waiting?

Tara: Yes. Hopefully ashland will cool off and I will be able to talk to him again.

Kyle: Sounds good.

Tara: [ Chuckles ]

Kyle: You still seem a bit anxious. Is there something else bothering you?

Tara: [ Chuckles ]

Nate: Uh-huh. Fantastic. That sounds great. Alright, talk to you soon.

Elena: Hey, you.

Nate: Hey!

Elena: Hey, what was that all about, good news?

Nate: I was just about to call you. Look, I want to take you out right now for some very expensive champagne.

Elena: [ Laughs ] Okay. But we’re not really date ready. I mean, you’re mid-job, and I’m still in my scrubs.

Nate: Good point, good point. Let’s go back home and change, and I will meet you at society.

Elena: Okay, but first, are you gonna tell me what you’re so excited to celebrate?

Nate: Not quite yet, but if you hurry up, you will be the first to find out.

Devon: Thank you.

Abby: Thank you for meeting me for coffee.

Devon: Yeah.

Abby: Again, you truly have been my rock.

Devon: If that’s your way of saying that I’m hard-headed, probably know some people that agree with you.

Abby: No, that’s my way of saying that you have been a really great friend.

Devon: Aw, so have you. I hope that smile on your face is ’cause mariah’s come back.

Abby: No, I — I wish. I’m just as worried about her as I was before. Maybe more.

Devon: Really? You haven’t heard anything new from her?

Abby: She sent a couple text messages. She did say that she’d be home before the next doctor’s appointment, which is within the week.

Devon: Okay. Well, that’s a relief that she said that. I really thought she’d be back by now, though.

Abby: Me, too. I just hope that she means it when she says that she’s coming back soon and that she’ll be in a good place when she gets here.

Mariah: [ Gasps ]

[ Sighs ] Good morning, kiddo.

[ Sighs ]

Lauren: You know, it’s not my place to decide if somebody’s relationship is a mistake. But for the record, I have no issue with you and sally giving it another go. In fact, I’m really glad I gave her another shot at fenmore’s, because without these second chances, you and I might have missed out on the phenom named sally spectra.

Jack: I take it she’s doing a great job at jcv.

Lauren: Jack, she’s shining.

Jack: Wow.

Lauren: So much so that I’m considering making her job as acting head of jcv permanent.

Jack: That is just great news.

Lauren: Oh, look at you.

Jack: What?

Lauren: Wearing dina’s “teardrop of love.” Mm, maybe they’re working their magic.

Jack: Oh, I wouldn’t go that far. No, sally and I are just trying to find our footing again. Though these stones seem to be working their magic on you and michael.

Lauren: Yes, we’ve never been happier. But you know what? Maybe these gemstones represented a different kind of love for you. Maybe instead of romantic, it’s familial. I know what a gift it is for you to have your grandson in your life.

Jack: Oh, it is such a joy to have that boy in the house.

Lauren: Mm.

Jack: I only wish it had happened sooner. Maybe dina would have had a chance to meet her great-grandson.

Lauren: Aww.

Jack: Maybe you’re right. Maybe the stones have brought the next generation of the abbott family home.

Lauren: [ Laughs ] But you’re not buying it, are you?

Jack: No, truthfully, I think of the necklace as, well, signifying hope, which I have an abundance of these days. I get to watch harrison growing up. I get to spend time with a lovely, clever, charming woman, wherever that goes. And each day seems to present a new opportunity. No, I’m — I couldn’t be more grateful or happy than I am right now. And I have you to thank for part of that. Thank you for sharing that necklace with my family.

Lauren: Oh, you’re so welcome. I mean, I can’t take all the credit. I’m happy for you, jack. You deserve all the joy there is in life, my friend.

Jack: Thank you. I want the same for you.

Phyllis: So all the charges have been deleted from your account. It won’t happen again.

Sally: Oh, no, it won’t happen again because I intend to keep a much closer eye on my bill from here on out.

Phyllis: Oh, obviously, obviously. Can I offer you a free day at the spa? It’s on us. I mean, I want to do that for the inconvenience.

Sally: That’s awfully nice of you. Little too nice.

Phyllis: Oh, okay, well, if you’re not interested in that, maybe some training sessions. You know, that super-hot trainer still has a crush on you.

Sally: Well, thank you very much for your thoughtfulness, but I’m not sure jack would be too happy about that.

Phyllis: Oh, that’s right. That’s right. Forget I said anything. Well, if you change your mind about a facial or massage, just give me the word.

Sally: Or you could just owe me one.

Phyllis: I definitely owe you one. I’ll be making good on that.

Tara: I suppose nothing else is the matter besides my entire life being turned upside down. I mean, it has just been one thing after another, and it doesn’t seem to stop. First it was ashland finding out about our affair. Then it was the divorce and then the custody arrangements, and now finding out ashland’s dying. I uprooted my entire life and harrison’s to try to find a way to deal with this situation the best I could. And I can’t see any true peace for my little boy in the near future.

Kyle: You and I are gonna do everything we can to help him through this.

Tara: I know we’re gonna try, but I don’t think we’re gonna be able to protect our little, sweet boy from everything.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Kyle: Hey, it’s mine.

Tara: Right.

[ Sighs ]

Kyle: I don’t need to take this. I’ll send it to voicemail.

Tara: Yeah.

Kyle: And I know you have so much going on right now, and of course you’re on edge. Is there anything I can do for you?

Tara: You know what? I think I’m gonna need a little time alone. I think I’m gonna — I’m gonna go for a drive.

Kyle: Okay.

Tara: Yeah. Harrison is gonna be dropped off soon from a play date. Do you think you could watch him for me?

Kyle: Yeah, no problem. Not touching is still touching protection.

Abby: I want to make sure that mariah’s homecoming is everything that she needs it to be, so — so no more nagging, no more hovering. I don’t want to put any pressure on mariah at all.

Devon: Yeah, but you’re being too hard on yourself. I never saw any nagging. You’ve just been concerned, that’s all.

Abby: [ Sighs ] I’m not so sure about that. Looking back at it, I mean, even now, I mean, I was trying to find a way to track mariah through her cellphone. Yeah, that way I could figure out where she was, and then i stopped myself because i realized that that would be an invasion of privacy and that is exactly what mariah has been asking us for — privacy.

Devon: Yeah, and I’m glad you’re respecting that.

Abby: She has sent us a message loud and clear, so when she gets back, if you see me being overprotective, please stop me because the last thing i want to do is drive her away again.

Devon: Oh, no, no one’s gonna have to stop you from doing anything. You guys obviously just had a miscommunication, and now that you know how she feels about everything and you’re aware of that dynamic, you’re gonna be just fine.

Abby: Yeah, I hope so.

Devon: Yeah.

Abby: You know, I really haven’t been asking you how you’re feeling about everything. I haven’t been putting any pressure on you, have I?

Devon: No. No, not at all. I knew what I was getting myself into when I started this journey with you. I’m still happy to be on it, no matter how unpredictable it gets. And I’m glad that I can be there for you while chance is gone, too.

Abby: Yeah, I definitely did not think he was gonna be away this long. I thought that we would be decorating the nursery and reading baby books and picking out baby names — not the jokey ones that we talked about before.

Devon: I know. You’ll be able to do that soon. And now that I’m always here to lean on if you need somebody. And I’m not the only person in your corner. You have all the abbotts, the newmans, nina, tessa, got a lot of friends and family that will do anything for you. So you are definitely not alone in all this.

Abby: [ Sighs, chuckles ]

Nina: Hiya.

Tessa: Oh, hi.

Nina: Did I interrupt something?

Tessa: Oh, no.

Nina: You can tell me. What were you looking at?

Tessa: Uh… that app that stitch was talking about. Tracking people’s locations through their phones, I — I found it. And I think I know enough of mariah’s personal information and passwords to make it work.

Nina: I see. I didn’t know that you were still considering that.

Tessa: Look, I know that you and abby are against this, but i can’t do nothing. And don’t take this the wrong way, but I’m not gonna argue about it.

Nina: No, I’m not gonna argue with you about it either. Mariah’s your partner. You have to do what you feel is right.

Mariah: [ Exhales deeply ] Feel that, kiddo?

[ Sighs ] Calm, measured yoga breathing. I’m doing my best to pass that serenity on to you. ‘Cause no stress for me means no stress for you. I’m just trying to pretend that there is some sense of normalcy here because this is all very, very normal. Okay. Okay, let’s start over. Try it again.

[ Inhales ] Breathe in.

[ Exhales ] Breathe out. Staying relaxed.

[ Sighs ] Not agitated. Not claustrophobic.

[ Sighs ] You want me to try again? Okay. I will try again.

[ Sighs ]

[ Doorknob rattling ] Hey! Hey! Look, as much fun as this stay has been, me and this baby would like to get out of here now, please. Please?

[ Sighs ] I guess we’re still prisoners. Alice loves the scent of gain so much,

she wished there was a way to

make it last longer.

Elena: You clean up nicely.

Nate: So do you, but you look just as beautiful in scrubs as you are all decked out like this.

Elena: [ Chuckles ]

Nate: Shall we?

Elena: I wasn’t sure exactly what to wear, considering you’ve been so cryptic. You’re not gonna keep me in suspense all night, are you?

Nate: Okay. Remember when I had some good news, but I wanted to sit on it until it was locked in?

Elena: Of course I do. I remember I tried to seduce it out of you that night. But somehow you resisted my charms.

Nate: Oh, the way I remember it, I didn’t resist.

[ Both chuckle ]

Elena: Yeah, but you didn’t tell me what was going on.

Nate: Ah. I guess I was having so much fun I forgot.

Elena: Well, I’m not opposed to trying that approach again if I have to.

Nate: Okay, good to know, but it’s not necessary. Wait, what am I saying? No, no, we can do that again. Yeah, we can go back to your place and —

Elena: I’m gonna kill you if you don’t spit it out.

Nate: Okay, okay. I’m ready to come clean.

Elena: Tell me.

Nate: You know what? Let’s get some bubbly first.

Elena: [ Scoffs ]

Nate: Excuse me. Can we get a bottle of your finest champagne?

Elena: Oh, my gosh, you’re killing me.

Abby: You do know that friendship goes both ways, right? I want to be there for you like you have been there for me.

Devon: Abby, you’re always there for me. I know you’ll have my back if i need it.

Abby: Okay, well, I have expressed all my doubts and fears, so now it is your turn. Please, tell me.

Devon: Tell you what? I don’t have any right now. I don’T. My life is pretty good.

Abby: Well, that is fantastic. Okay, well, I want to live vicariously through you, okay? Please tell me all about everything, all about your life.

Devon: All about my life?

Abby: Mm-hmm.

Devon: Okay. Well, work is going great. It’s been really nice having moses stay with me. It’s been fun. But I don’t know, I guess the main source of my happiness these days is from amanda.

Jack: Where’s harrison?

Kyle: He came from his play date exhausted, so he’s taking a nap.

Jack: Oh, I’m sorry I missed him. I was gonna grab a snack. You hungry?

Kyle: Not really.

Jack: You know, there’s a ball game on. We could check it out.

Kyle: I’m not really in the mood.

Jack: Okay. Something’s going on. What is it?

Kyle: I had a conversation with phyllis.

Jack: Oh, that would do it. About what?

Kyle: She thinks tara is somehow involved with summer leaving town, that she orchestrated the whole thing.

Jack: I know all about phyllis’ theories with tara. It upsets me as much as it does you. Look, she had tara in tears not long ago. I don’t know why she feels so compelled to stick her nose in other people’s business. It just makes me wonder about her more than it does about what she’s saying is true.

Kyle: I know she’s also hurt that summer left town so suddenly, but —

Jack: You think she’s looking to blame someone, that she just seized on tara?

Kyle: That’s what I’m thinking.

Jack: Okay, well, I have told her multiple times to back off, and she will not drop it, not with tara and not with sally.

Kyle: Sally — interesting you bring her up, because phyllis was linking tara and sally, as well. She thinks they’re working together as co-conspirators.

Sally: Tara! It’s nice to see you. What are you doing here?

Tara: I came about my shoe line and the possibility of collaborating with jcv.

Sally: Of course, yeah, let’s sit down.

Tara: Actually, I think it would be better if we went up to your suite.

Sally: Sure, yeah. Let’s go upstairs.

Tara: Tell me what happened. Are you out of your mind sending that text?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Jack: Are you actually buying into phyllis’ theory?

Kyle: Okay, I admit, I let her get into my head earlier. She had me wondering if tara was up to something.

Jack: So where are you on this now?

Kyle: The idea that tara put together this elaborate plot on top of everything she’s dealing with right now, it’s ridiculous, so, no, I don’t think tara’s scheming behind our backs.

Jack: I agree. I don’t think she’s capable of being this devious.

Kyle: Right. But sally, on the other hand…

Jack: Why would you blame sally for anything?

Kyle: Summer leaves town, sally gets her job at jcv, a job she never would have been —

Jack: Let me interrupt. Has phyllis given you any evidence to support these suspicions?

Kyle: No. But she claims she was working on finding some.

Jack: Summer recommended sally for the job. You know that. If sally was manipulating things, that doesn’t make any sense. I know she’s done some questionable things in the past, but I honestly believe she’s trying to change.

Kyle: Okay, trying is not necessarily succeeding, and i know you don’t want to hear this, dad, but you’ve been down this road with sally. I don’t want to see you get hurt again.

Phyllis: Well, look at that. Someone’s irritated, someone’s confused.

Tara: Let’s get something straight. I am not about to let you risk my life or my son’S.

Sally: I have no idea what you’re talking about. What on earth did I do to put anything at risk? The only thing I’ve been focused on lately is my job and jack.

Tara: And phyllis. I mean, what could she know that would be so important that you would send blatant and incriminating texts to my phone. Anyone who sees that would have proof of our collusion.

Sally: Okay, the more you talk, the more confused I get.

Tara: What in god’s name is so confusing?

Sally: I didn’t send any texts about phyllis. What the hell? I didn’t send that. And — yeah, I don’t have any record of a message like that on my phone. Phyllis. Oh, my god, that conniving bitch.

Tara: What? You think that phyllis sent that text from your phone?

Sally: [ Sighs ] Go wait in my suite.

Tara: Why? What are you gonna do?

Sally: I’m gonna handle phyllis.

Tessa: I don’t want to push mariah further away, but I’m worried sick.

Nina: And you weren’t reassured by her latest texts?

Tessa: Not really. Because when I texted her back to ask her to send me some clue if something were wrong, she didn’t respond, which makes me think that something is actually wrong. I can’t explain it. It’s just a gut feeling.

Nina: You have to trust your instincts.

Tessa: Mariah’s the woman i love, and I can’t stand not knowing whether she’s okay. I know you and abby want to lay off so she feels comfortable enough to come home, but I can’t do it. And if nothing else is wrong, then I’m to blame, and she’ll be furious at me, so I’m turning on this app to track her phone.

Mariah: [ Sighs ] I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you. I guess I just have to look at it from your perspective. There are no windows in there, and there are no windows in here. So I guess we just have to wait. Because we are not getting out of this room. Believe me, I have tried everything. I have screamed and I’ve prayed and I’ve begged and I’ve threatened, and whoever is keeping us in here is giving us the serious silent treatment. Don’t worry, though, okay, kiddo? I’m gonna find a way to get us out of here, okay? I’m gonna get you back to your mom safe and sound…somehow.

[ Rumbling ] Here we go again. Breyers is always so delicious…

Devon: No, amanda and I have been getting closer and closer every day. She’s — she’s something special. I’ve been in awe of her lately throughout this case she’s taken on for her family, ’cause it’s just — it’s put her through a lot of emotional stress. She’s stayed really strong through it.

Abby: Well, I do have to agree with you about amanda. She is brilliant and beautiful and she is exactly what you need, in my humble opinion.

Devon: I appreciate that opinion. It’s crazy, though, to think about how she came into my life. Colin using her to try and steal my money.

Abby: Well, I would give more credit to fate than colin, and then it was up to the two of you to get past your animosity and realize that you have something special.

Devon: Yeah, that’s true. It was an odd start, but we really did connect.

Abby: I have to ask, how does she feel about your involvement with baby chancellor? I mean, especially now that the due date is getting closer.

Devon: She’s been supportive since day one, when she gave me her legal opinion about our contract.

Abby: Well, that is a huge relief because some people might not be that supportive.

Devon: No? Are you talking about anyone in particular? Maybe an ex of yours?

Abby: Ben?

Devon: Uh-huh.

Abby: No, no, ben is happy for me. And, yes, ben and I, we once shared a love for each other, but that was a long time ago. You know, and now we’ve both moved on and it’s kind of like being around an old friend. I’m actually happy that he’s gonna be moving here.

Devon: Oh, really, he is? I thought he was just here for the party and then decided to stay a little longer. He’s gonna move here?

Phyllis: Oh. Surely there’s not another problem with your bill?

Sally: What the hell is wrong with you?

Phyllis: Excuse me?

Sally: You have some serious issues and no ethical boundaries.

Phyllis: Um…I’m sorry, I’m confused. I mean, we credited your account. There should be no problem. I offered you a spa day. You know, maybe you’re stressed out. Now would be a good time to use it.

Sally: Save it. Nice really doesn’t work for you. It comes across as cloying and fake.

Phyllis: Oh, I’m sorry you feel that way.

Sally: You distracted me with that whole bogus bill charade so that you could steal my phone and send that twisted text.

Phyllis: Um…I’m sorry, I’m confused. Why would I send a text from your phone when mine works perfectly fine? Why would I do that? Um, anyway, maybe you did it and you just forgot. But what was on that text that has you so upset?

Sally: You think that you’re smarter and more devious than i am, but you are making a big mistake underestimating me.

Jack: I realize your heart is in the right place in warning me about sally, but I assure you i am going into this with my eyes wide open.

Kyle: Going into what, exactly?

Jack: She and I are having dinner together tonight.

Kyle: Okay. Well, you know how I feel. I’ve said my piece. I guess I don’t have any more proof than phyllis does that sally is involved with summer leaving, so…

[ Cellphones vibrate ] From phyllis.

Jack: Yeah, god only knows what this could be.

Kyle: Hmm, it’s a video file.

Jack: Yeah, there’s no sound. Security footage.

Kyle: Of tara and sally arguing.

Jack: About what?

Kyle: Mm, no idea, but the time stamp on the video says it was recorded in the last hour.

Jack: They’re looking at their phones. What could that be about?

Phyllis: Oh, sally. I don’t underestimate you at all. I really don’T. But I am curious why you’re so upset.

Sally: Oh, you don’t know? Okay, alright, cool. Let me show you. Give me your phone. I’d like to send a few text messages. There’s some things I’d really like to get off my chest.

Phyllis: Okay. [ Chuckles ] Okay, listen, for argument’s sake, for argument’s sake, let’s say I did send that text. Why would you be so scared?

Sally: I am not scared.

Phyllis: Oh, I think you are scared.

Sally: What you did is an invasion of privacy. I could press charges for theft.

Phyllis: What did I steal?

Sally: You impersonated me. That is identity theft.

Phyllis: Oh, please.

[ Chuckles ] But something on that text has you really freaked out. What could it be that would make you so angry? I mean, the way that you’re acting, it’s really next-level.

Sally: You know nothing about what hits me on any level.

Phyllis: I think I do. I think your buttons have been pushed. Someone’s pushed your buttons. You come clean right now. You tell me what you and tara did to my daughter.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Kyle: I hate having to question tara like this. She is the mother of my child.

Jack: I know that, but this video raises enough questions to at least warrant a conversation.

Kyle: Yeah, what if we’re jumping to conclusions?

Jack: I hope we are. But whatever’s going on, we need some answers.

Abby: Ben’s moving back because he was offered a job at the hospital. And, yes, I might remind him of a good time in his life before max’s illness, but there’s nothing more to it than that.

Devon: You sure?

Abby: I am, yeah, 100%. And actually, he’s been a happy distraction from worrying about mariah and the baby. He’s given me a lot more support than I expected.

Devon: Okay. Alright, well, hey, that’s — that’s just me being protective of you, that’s all. If you’re happy, then I am happy.

Abby: I am. Ben and I, we might have had some painful times in the past, but that’s over with. I’m actually really happy for him. I mean, it’s kind of cool that he’s moving back to genoa city. It might be the start of a new chapter in his life. And besides, how can he turn down a job like chief of surgery at memorial?

Nate: Mm.

Elena: Don’t you dare take a sip of that until you tell me what’s going on. No. What is the news? What are we celebrating?

Nate: Okay, I can share it now because the hospital board finally approved it.

Elena: Approved what?

Nate: We are about to toast to the fact that you are now sitting across the table from the new chief of surgery at memorial.

Elena: [ Inhales sharply ]

[ Gasps ]

Nina: How long does it take for the app to track mariah’s phone?

Tessa: I have no idea.

Nina: You know, I want to be perfectly clear, I have no problem with your decision. You and mariah have a special bond. I mean, anyone in the world can see how in love the two of you are.

Tessa: Thank you. I really appreciate you saying that. But, god, I’d give anything to hear her voice and see her beautiful face again.

[ Beeping ]

Nina: Does that mean it worked? Did it find mariah?

Tessa: It says her phone location is completely blocked. What does that mean?

Mariah: See, kiddo? It’s right on time. You know, the service may be lacking, but the food, it isn’t that bad. Ah, and we have a side of prenatal vitamins, no less. We have everything we need. Except an answer. Don’t panic, mariah. Don’t panic, don’t panic, please.

[ Exhales sharply ] Okay. Well, I guess I can’t really hide what I’m feeling from you ’cause you are literally growing inside my belly, can I? So we’re in this together. And we’re gonna get through this together, okay?

[ Sighs ] Who are you?! What do you want from us?! Just tell us what you want!

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Brooke: So, I was wondering, did being locked up change bill at all?

Katie: [ Laughing ] You mean, did it make him more humble? Uh, no. I think it’s gonna take more than a jail cell to accomplish that. I’m kind of relieved. I mean, it’d be weird if he came back and he was all transformed.

Brooke: If will is anything like beth and douglas, I’m sure he’s thrilled to have his father home.

Katie: Yeah, he is. And bill is spending every possible moment with him.

Brooke: Same at our place. Hope and liam are really focusing on the children and making sure that they feel safe and secure.

Katie: Well, family seems to be the thing these days. Especially now with steffy and finn and their little one.

Brooke: Ridge is there right now. He can’t get enough of his little grandson.

Katie: Well, he must be really pleased at how steffy’s turned her life around since she and finn got together. Makes me wonder if there will be another wedding soon.

Ridge: To be clear, I support your relationship with finn. He’s a good guy, he loves your children, he loves you. I just didn’t like that he wanted to marry you on the couch without your–your family. It just didn’t seem right.

Steffy: Well, you know, he’s full of surprises.

Ridge: Yeah, and even though you turned down that wedding proposal, I can see in your eyes that it’s gonna happen. Am I right?

Paris: I don’t mean to put you on the spot, but you must have been a little bummed when steffy didn’t go along with your impromptu wedding.

Finn: Yeah, but I get why. She wants one with her family, and it takes a lot of time to plan. We got a lot going on right now.

Paris: Yeah, valid reasons. I still think that isn’t what you wanted to hear.

Brooke: Steffy and finn are as committed as it gets.

Katie: And now, they have a child. It’s just amazing how quickly your life can change.

Brooke: I know. If finn wasn’t working that shift at the hospital that night when steffy had her accident, they may never have met.

Katie: Well, I guess that just validates your belief in fate.

Brooke: Yes! Fate is real. If two people are destined to meet, they’re going to meet, no matter what stands in their way. I’m just happy that steffy is back on the right track, for her sake and for hope’S. Not that it was bad before. It’s just, doesn’t hurt to have a wonderful man by your side, like finn.

Ridge: Finn has made an incredible difference in your life.

Steffy: He sure has. I can’t imagine my life without him.

Ridge: And now, you have, uh, little hayes.

Steffy: I know. It just keeps getting better and better.

Ridge: You’re happy. It’s obvious.

Steffy: Yeah, I am.

Ridge: And to think…

[ Baby cooing ] What is that sound?

Steffy: The baby.

Ridge: No, no, no, it’s something else. It’s, uh…

Steffy: What sound? What are you…?

Ridge: Wedding bells. I hear it loud and clear.

Steffy: Uh-huh. Dad.

Ridge: Don’t throw stuff at me.

Steffy: I’ll throw all the toys at you.

Ridge: All right.

Steffy: [ Laughing ] What’s the #1 retinol brand

Paris: I don’t mean to be up in your business. I’m just checking on you, making sure you’re okay.

Finn: I’m good. But I appreciate your concern for steffy and me.

Paris: Well, I’m–I’m not, really. I can see that you guys couldn’t love each other any more. Especially seeing it up close? I mean, talk about relationship goals. You guys have set the bar very high.

Finn: Oh, what can I say? You know, steffy, she’s–she’s pretty easy to love.

Paris: Oh, don’t sell yourself short. You’re pretty special too.

Finn: That’s kind of you to think.

Paris: Not think, know. And I will challenge anyone who tries to say different.

[ Both laugh ]

Finn: Well, I like you, paris, and I, um, I’m glad you’re part of our lives.

Paris: I couldn’t be more grateful for your generosity. Staying with you and steffy has made all the difference. The pressure to find a place, like, now, is gone. I get to walk on the beach every day. And if that’s not enough, I get to spend time with your beautiful kids.

Finn: Oh, I know the kids are enjoying it too.

[ Door opens ]

Zende: This is the file steffy needs.

Finn: Yes, thank you, I appreciate that.

Zende: So, what’s the verdict on the new baby? Gonna keep him?

Finn: [ Laughing ] Yeah, we’re, uh, we’re leaning that way.

Zende: Paris says that hayes is something.

Finn: Well, I mean, steffy and I seem to think so. But, um, anyway, I better get back, so…

Zende: Good seeing you.

Finn: Thank you very much. Um… later?

Paris: Later.

Finn: All right.

[ Door closes ]

Zende: He’s a good guy.

Paris: Yeah. He sure is.

Katie: So, ridge approves of finn, right?

Brooke: How could he not? Finn puts a smile on her face that we haven’t seen in a long time. She is genuinely happy.

Katie: I think it’s more than that, though. She just seems… settled in a mature way, right?

Brooke: Yeah. There’s no drama. They’re sure about their future together.

Katie: Hmm. Fate.

Brooke: You said it, not me.

Katie: That’s because I know you wanted to.

[ Both laughing ]

Brooke: You tease me, but i know you believe it too.

Katie: Oh, sure, when it comes to you and ridge, absolutely.

Brooke: And you and bill.

Katie: I’m not so sure about that.

Brooke: Oh, come on. You guys will get back together, and he’ll have plenty of time to charm you.

Katie: Yeah, charm is kind of an understatement. He’S… relentless.

Brooke: Oh.

Katie: Why are we talking about me and bill? We’re talking about steffy and finn, and how happy she is now that finn is in her life.

Brooke: And baby makes four.

Katie: You know, I–I realize that steffy doesn’t need a man to define her. But he is the father of her son, he’s the stepfather to her daughter. They’re crazy about each other, so… what’s the hold up?

Ridge: My grandson’s getting better looking by the minute. And he was gorgeous to start with.

Steffy: Yeah, he’s especially cute when he’s sleeping.

Ridge: Is he not letting you sleep?

Steffy: No, not really, but we love it. And we’re taking turns. But it’s so cute seeing finn like this. This is his first experience as a dad, so… it’s nice to watch him.

Ridge: It’s sweet that… your face light up every time you talk about that guy. It’s nice. Do that again.

Steffy: What?

Ridge: Your face. Just turn that way a little bit.

Steffy: Why?

Ridge: Just do it.

Steffy: Okay, like this?

Ridge: Yeah. Why can’t I… mm, I’ve spent too long with this stuff. There it is.

Steffy: What are you doing?

Ridge: Uh, just adjusting something I’ve been working on.

Steffy: Wait. Are–wait, wait a minute. Are you…

Ridge: Nothing, just let–

Steffy: Are you designing my dress? No, let me see.

Ridge: No.

Steffy: Just let me see, dad. Please, please, please, please–

Ridge: No, hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. I know you don’t like surprises, but let me have this one. Just let me finish it, ’cause we’re gonna need it sooner or later, right?

Steffy: I’m not confirming or denying anything till I talk to finn.

Ridge: All right, fair enough.

Steffy: But I do love the guy like crazy.

Finn: I hope the guy you’re referring to is me.

Steffy: Hey.

Finn: Hi.

Ridge: Well, that is my cue to leave. You guys go ahead and discuss the future.

[ Both laughing ] Love you.

Steffy: Love you. Bye, dad.

Ridge: All right.

Finn: What about the future? In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me,

Zende: You keep going back to that one.

Paris: Oh, it’s exquisite.

Zende: You really think so?

Paris: Who would know your work better than me?

Zende: Oh, I don’t know. Hope?

Paris: Okay, maybe. But I’m a close second, so i know what I’m talking about. You have completely leveled up with this one design.

Zende: I don’t see it.

Paris: Are you kidding me?

[ Scoffs ]

Zende: No, I’m still too in the details. I can’t take it all in yet because I don’t know what it’s gonna end up being.

Paris: All right, well, you go ahead and keep surpassing yourself, ’cause this is a showstopper.

Zende: Don’t tell thomas.

Paris: My lips are sealed.

Zende: You know, I’m glad that we decided to take things a little bit slower. One day at a time. This ease I feel with you, I don’t want to put that at risk.

Paris: Yeah, I–I feel the same. You know, after witnessing zoe, carter, quinn, and eric blow up, destroy their relationship to no repair, I just don’t wanna see that happen to us.

Zende: So, earlier when–when finn was here, it felt like I was walking in on something. Is everything okay at the beach?

Paris: Yeah. It’s just, you know, when you live with someone, you can pick up on nuances and whatnot. I just want the best for steffy and finn.

Brooke: I think hope will agree with your changes for the campaign. You just have to call her and schedule a meeting. Oh, but do it next week sometime, because they’re still trying to settle in with liam being back home.

Katie: Yeah, of course. I understand.

Ridge: Ladies!

Katie: Hi.

Ridge: Hey, I didn’t know you were here, how are you?

Katie: Good.

Ridge: Good.

Brooke: Wow, you’re all charged up.

Ridge: Hi, you look good.

Brooke: Mm, wow!

Ridge: I–you… do you remember going to hawaii? Do you remember that?

Brooke: Uh, yeah.

Ridge: Yeah, sitting on the beach, and–and the water was perfect, and the sand was perfect, and we’re just having a couple of drinks. And the sun is out, and we’re just having a good time. You know how that feels at night?

Brooke: I know.

Ridge: How you’re charged up, right? That’s–no, that’s how I feel when I have my little grandson. I’m–I’m holding him.

Katie: Oh, my god.

Ridge: And not that it was on the beach, but I’m just– I just felt like I’m charged up.

Katie: Grandpa is a goner.

Brooke: Wow.

Ridge: I am!

Katie: He is on the beach somewhere.

Ridge: With my boy. It’s amazing.

Brooke: Okay, well, you know what, how’s steffy?

Ridge: Steffy?

Brooke: Yes.

Ridge: I guess she’s okay. She’s okay too. I don’t–yeah, she’s good.

Brooke: Okay.

Katie: Well, we were just talking about her, how happy she is since she found finn.

Ridge: No, she is happy. It’s–it’s a good life. It’s–it’s a good life for her, she’s very happy.

Katie: They’re a real family now.

Ridge: Yeah.

Brooke: And finn seems like a traditional guy, so we were actually wondering why they’re not married yet. Especially now that there’s hayes.

Finn: I still can’t get over him. I mean, he’s really here. It just–it still gets me.

Steffy: I know, it’s like so much anticipation for months, then it just feels like he’s always been here.

Finn: Mm, I know, he steals my heart a little bit more each day.

Steffy: Mm-hmm. We made a good baby.

Finn: Yeah, we did. Mm, I got the file for you from the office.

Steffy: Thank you for saving me the drive.

Finn: I’m happy to do it. And you gave me a son. The least I can do is pick up some paperwork.

Steffy: It’s more than that. You’re so kind. And considerate. And you’ve been like that from the very beginning. I’m so lucky to have you in my life.

Finn: I think I’m the lucky one.

Steffy: [ Chuckles ] We’re both lucky. The way you take care of me and kelly, and the love you have for hayes… I never want to let you go.

Finn: Good. ‘Cause I won’t go anywhere.

Steffy: Good. I just wanna keep my arms around you like this, always. Till death do us part.

Finn: Wait. Are you saying what I think you’re saying?

Steffy: Mm-hmm. There are times, I wonder…

Ridge: Well, this is new. The two of you concerned about steffy.

Brooke: She’s my stepdaughter. Of course I’m concerned. I want her to be happy.

Ridge: And I’m–I’m not saying you shouldn’t be. I’m–I’m happy that you’re happy. But there was a time when she wasn’t your favorite person, right?

Brooke: Not when she was making my daughter’s life miserable.

Ridge: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: So, I can’t deny I am thrilled that steffy and finn are together. Now that it takes her off the playing field for liam, everybody is happy and they’re in the right place.

Ridge: Katie, do me a favor. Can you write that down? ‘Cause that is it. This is the world according to logan.

Brooke: You know it’s true, ridge, come on. He adores steffy. And there’s no competition for his heart.

Katie: Which has got to be a relief to know where she stands with her man.

Ridge: It’s a relief for me to know that my daughter, my extraordinary, talented daughter doesn’t come second to anyone. This has nothing to do with liam, really. Maybe a little bit, but I–I’m glad that liam is with hope. And steffy should be with finn.

Brooke: Okay. Well, that takes us back to the wedding question. Now, I know that steffy doesn’t need a husband. But under all that fiery exterior and independence, I think that she wants a traditional family, you know?

Ridge: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: And the best man for her to make up that husband material is finn.

Katie: I completely agree. So, that begs the question, why hasn’t she made it official?

Ridge: I’m sorry. This is–this is fun for me.

Katie: What?

Ridge: You guys are speculating about things, and I actually have information.

Katie: You’ve been letting us go on and on and on, and you have actual intel?

Brooke: Oh, my god! Spill it already!

Ridge: You guys wanna hear it?

Katie: Yeah!

Brooke: I do!

Ridge: Okay, well I–I was over at my daughter’s house, and we were talking about weddings and marriages and stuff, and she said, “well, I need to talk to finn about that.” And… she will. So, I’m not sure about you guys, but I feel that there’s gonna be wedding bells very soon.

Brooke: [ Chuckles ]

Katie: Oh!

Brooke: [ Laughing ]

Finn: I don’t want to jump to a wrong conclusion, but when you said, “till death do us part,” sounds pretty familiar.

Steffy: What about, “do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband?”

Finn: Are you serious?

Steffy: When you proposed to me, I was so happy. I accepted, and I–I put on your ring. And then we had hayes. When you wanted to get married right away, that meant so much to me. I know it probably stung when I told you I–I needed time.

Finn: Steffy, I heard you. Like, a lot has happened, you know, really fast. And… I know you just needed to catch your breath before the next life-changing event. It’s–it’s totally understandable.

Steffy: I don’t know where you came from, or how our worlds collided. But I am–I am so grateful.

Finn: Me too.

Steffy: You changed everything for me. Even the way I value myself. I’ll never doubt how much you love me, because it’S… it’s the way you show me. And I promise, I’m gonna love you… until death do us part.

[ Chuckles ] I wanna marry you, finn. And I wanna do it right away. If you still wanna marry me.

Finn: Are you serious? Yes.

Steffy: Yeah?

Finn: Steffy. I wanted that since the first moment I laid eyes on you. You say I changed everything? Look in the mirror. I am a different man. I am a better man for loving you. And I would be so honored to have this vibrant, beautiful, sexy, fearless woman that you are as my wife. Today, or tomorrow, or a hundred years from now.

Steffy: No, no, I wanna marry you right away. I wanna marry you right away. I wanna be your wife. I wanna do it right away. And I finally get to meet your parents.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Anna: Is this where Peter went? Did he hide down here before escaping? Did he escape, Finn?

Finn: No. He’s in there.


[ Indistinct chatter ]

Hmm. Ugh, you and that phone.

Well, it’s not like you’re free from your own, Mom.

Hey, I only use my phone to make calls, texts, and send e-mails.

Oh, and to spy on your children.

No, I would call that monitoring my children.

Oh.

So, what’s going on with you? How come you’re not hanging out with Trina and Cameron?

[ Sighs ] Thing is, uh — is there’s something that you should —

Sorry to interrupt a mother-daughter moment, but I wanted to say hello.

Hello, spencer. Josslyn told me you were back in town. So did a few of my hotel staffers.

The attendants here were very helpful after I took an unexpected swim.

Oh, my gosh. You really should be more careful this close to the pool edge.

Oh, I definitely learned my lesson.

Oh, one can only hope. Hey, mom!


[ Door creaks ]

[ Sighs ] I thought we were getting that thing fixed.

Oh, the carpenter said he’s gonna come by to repair it.

On second thought, maybe we shouldn’t fix it. That thing is better than an alarm system. I even heard it screech last night when you finally came home.

The hospital is working you really late these days, huh?


[ Upbeat club music plays over speakers ]

So, when do we take this leap of faith?

There’s no time like the present.

[ Upbeat music resumes ]

Checking out the competition.

Man, I have to admit, the sunset views here sure look better than mine at the nightclub.

Yeah. Good to see you, man.

Good to see you, too.

[ Laughter, chatter ]

So, how does it feel to be a free man?

Uh, hard to describe. The short answer is that it feels damn good.

[ Chuckles ] Alright. What about the long answer?

Well, freedom doesn’t always mean free from problems or challenges. I’ve still got plenty of those. Starting with my search for whoever shot Hayden. I was hoping you can help me out.


[ Knock on door ]

Officer: Commissioner? Someone’s asking to see you.

I know the officer’s only doing his job, but can you please tell him that I’m family?

It’s all right. She is family.

Yes, commissioner.

Stella… [ Sighs ] What can I do for you?

You can tell me what you are doing to salvage your marriage before you lose my nephew altogether.


Elizabeth: Scott! Hi. Thank you for meeting me.

Hey. Sure, my pleasure. But — but it sounded really urgent on the phone.

Yeah, um… how does the law define justifiable homicide?


Spinelli. Hacking into the security cameras bought me a little time.

Thank you.

Are you still there? There’s something else I need you to do.


Peter’s in the freezer.

That’s right. Peter august is dead. I killed him.


When did you get back to port Charles, spencer?

A few days ago, but that’s no excuse. I should have come to see you before now to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I really admired uncle sonny. In my opinion, he was a great man. I’ll miss him.

Thank you. And the flowers you sent were beautiful.

I only wish I could have delivered them in person, but the situation with, uh, my father marrying that woman… I know you understand.

I do understand. I do.

[ Chuckles ] And I understand congratulations are in order. You and Jason are engaged.

We are, yeah.

Well, I must say, this is the happy ending you both deserve.


I only stopped by to grab my tablet and head back out to the pool, so I’ll make this quick.

Okay. The hospital’s working you way too hard. Last night, they kept you until after midnight.

Actually, I-I, um… I wasn’t working last night. I went out.

Out? Like, out-out? For fun?

Is it that impossible to believe?

Yes! By yourself?

Well, no. Terry…[ Sighs ] She invited me to go out, and I said yes.

That’s great! Better than great. Where?

Oh, here, there.

You know. Imagine if you asked me where I was, and I said that.

Okay, fine. Um, eventually, terry and I ended up at the savoy… with Curtis.


Yo, man, you know, I’m no longer in the pi game, right?

Yeah, TJ told me. But the fact is, your ex-partner is helping me with the actual investigation.

Sam? Okay. Yeah. Um, well, Sam’s one of the best. If anybody can help you find Hayden’s shooter, it’d be Sam.

Yeah, I’m counting on it. But I also know you did a deep dive on the case.

Yeah, and I got exactly nowhere. You do know Hayden and i were friends before she left?

I remember.

Well, um, I never found a smoking gun. If I did, I would have immediately notified the cops.

Well — but we never really could find who Hayden’s shooter was.

Well, I know you were thorough, which is why I’m wondering if there was something in, you know, your old files — something that may not have even clicked back then that might mean something now.

I’ll revisit my old records, see what I can find. It’s the least I can do.

Thanks, man. Look, I just want you to know that I know you’ve already done plenty, and I’m grateful.


My marriage is not open for discussion, and this conversation is over.

[ Sighs ] I’m sorry, Jordan, but if it takes a little tough love to get you to follow your heart —

I followed it. Just like you encouraged. I went to go find Curtis to tell him that if he wanted to roll up his sleeves and make this marriage work, that I would be right beside him.

Oh, now you’re talking. Did you find him?

Oh, I found him alright. At the savoy. I also found the answer I was looking for… and it wasn’t the answer that you or I wanted.


Alright, Elizabeth, just a little piece of advice — if you’re gonna talk about justifiable homicide, you should do it when there’s, you know — there’s — nobody’s near you. I mean, to your lawyer.

Okay, well, nobody’s near us now, so — yeah, I think it should still be a little hush-hush.

[ Sighs ] Oh, my god. Now, just between you and me… what kind of trouble are you in?

No, this isn’t about me. This is about —

Oh, right.  [ Sighs ] A friend, right? 99% out of 100%, when somebody says, “it’s about a friend,” there never is a friend.

Well, this time, there is.

Okay, alright. You’re gonna stick to your story. You want to take me for a buggy ride? Fine. So, this friend — why did they kill whoever it was that they killed?

Desperation. Uh, outrage. The thing is, is that my friend didn’t mean to kill this other person, so it was self-defense.

Well…[ Stammers ] No. Okay, okay, okay. First things first, Elizabeth.  [ Sighs ] You didn’t kill anybody?

Scott, no! This isn’t about me.

Yes, it is about you, Elizabeth. I’m sorry to snap at you, but if you know that your friend killed somebody or anything about it, that makes you an accessory to murder.


Finn: After all the lives that Peter destroyed, is it really that hard to believe he’d meet a violent death?

Anna: No, I mean, I’m not having trouble believing that he was killed. I’m having trouble believing that you did it.

Finn: [ Sniffs ] Believe it, because it’s true. I’m the one who found Peter on the roof waiting for a helicopter to try to help him escape. I pleaded with him.

Peter: Stay out of my way, Finn. My daughter’s out there.

Finn: And my son is dying downstairs. Give me what I need to save him.

Finn: I confronted him about chase.

Peter: I don’t know what to tell you, Finn… except if chase dies… blame Anna.

Finn: His answer was to throw the antidote off the roof.

Finn: No!

Finn: And then he tried to leave, and I…

Finn: You’re not walking out —

Finn: I couldn’t let that happen.

Peter: Get off of me! Aaaah!

Finn: So, yeah. It’s all true. I killed Peter august. I threw him face-first down a flight of stairs. He hit his head hard on the way down. He died.

I’m sorry.

Finn: That I killed him?

Anna: No. That you’ve had to bear the weight of what you did.

Finn: Yeah, well… it goes against everything that I stand for. But if I had to face Peter on that roof again… under the circumstances… I wouldn’t do a damn thing different.


You and Jason will be perfect life partners. And I hope it’s not presumptuous of me to say that I think that uncle sonny would have approved.

Thank you.

I guess there’s something safe and familiar about falling in love with a friend. How to explain how joss and cam wound up together.

Spencer!

Joss and cam? What?

Well, yes, that’s —

I know, I can’t believe it, either. I mean, it’s certainly true that they’ve known each other most of their lives, but I’ve always credited joss with a more adventurous spirit. I would figure that, you know, she’d be drawn more to someone that’s… what? You haven’t told your mother?

[ Gasps ]

[ Sighs ] Josslyn!

God, I wish he’d stayed in Italy.

[ Gasps ]


Oh, so you and terry had a drink with Curtis?

No. No, sweetheart. Um, terry encouraged me to seek out Curtis, and I did.

Oh, so, you and Curtis…

It’s a new thing — for both of us.

[ Laughs ] You know I haven’t really dated that much since me and your father split up — at least never seriously, right?

And never, ever talking to me about it.

Did you want me to stop?

I didn’t say that.

Well, Curtis and I, we really enjoy each other’s company. You must have noticed that.

I knew you were close. I mean, Curtis called the night Cyrus took us hostage and wound up coming to our rescue. And when Curtis was shot, we kept vigil at G.H. So, I mean, it makes everything make sense.

But my interest in Curtis, I-I mean, it’s not because he risked his life to save us. It’s because of the man that he is. I like being with him, and I’d like to spend more time with him.

So…?

How are you feeling about all that?


Shawn: You know, one of the toughest things about prison was being locked away from TJ. Sure, he was on the right track and doing well in school, but he was also at a pivotal point in his life, and it’s easy for a young man to lose his way, you know, turn down the wrong road. TJ needed guidance and a strong role-model, and since I wasn’t able to be there for him, you were.

[ Sighs ] Man. I’m just thankful you came to port Charles when you did.

One of the best moves I ever made.

Nah, man. You’ve always been a real good friend. You know, someone I can count on and turn to. Despite what happened with tommy.

Uh, we all made a lot of mistakes back in the day. I don’t know anyone blameless.

Man, those mistakes could have easily put a wedge in between us, but you didn’t let it. No, you made the friendship more important. You made it a point to always be there for me and TJ… and I just want to say thank you, truly. You’re a good man.

That means a lot coming from you. Much respect.

Cheers, brother.

Cheers.


Uh, Elizabeth, for it to be justifiable homicide, the person that committed the crime would have to prove that he was in a situation where it was kill or be killed.

I see. But what if —

I also recall coming to visit a friend of yours that, uh, was afraid that they were gonna be hauled in for questioning on the disappearance of Peter august. And I know that that friend was very important to you.

Okay, um, so, what if that friend needed your help?

It would be a conflict of interest.

What conflict?

Elizabeth, you are my top priority. I will do everything in my power to protect you. So, now, you’ve got to tell me what’s going on so that I can help you out of this mess that you’re in before it’s too late.


Spinelli. Did you find it?

Whatever happened, I-I know you’re not a murderer.

A jury of my peers might disagree.

You confronted Peter. You shoved him. He fell down the stairs, and he hit his head. You tried to help him, didn’t you?

I checked for breathing. And a pulse. There was nothing. There was… nothing I could do. He was gone.

And you’re certain?

Yeah, well, you know, I didn’t spend a lot of time lingering over the body, alright? I had other priorities, like trying to keep chase alive.

And you didn’t feel you could come to me?

Knowing Peter was dead wasn’t gonna bring you any closer to finding Louise. And I couldn’t risk leaving violet without a father. Her mother already abandoned her. How could i leave her, too?


Josslyn: [ Sighs ] This is getting annoying.

Oh, tell me about it.

What the hell is wrong with you?

How was i supposed to know that you were keeping your romance a secret from your mother?

Mm.

I thought you two shared everything.

Oh, we do. In fact, I was just about to tell her before you had to open your big mouth! God, remind me to tell Trina to not even waste her time with you. She is so out of your league.

Okay, here.

Thank you.

You’re in town five minutes and you’re already causing trouble?

Yeah. Excuse me, please. I want to talk to my daughter. Sit down.

[ Sighs ] You have got to stop pushing that kid in the pool.

Yes, I know.

I’m serious. It’s a safety regulation, okay? Stop.

I’m sorry. And I’d love to promise that it won’t happen again, but if spencer is sitting close to a pool edge running his mouth about something that is none of his business —

Find another way to shut him up, okay? Because if spencer hits his head, Nikolas will sue me.

Okay. But he is a jerk, and he totally deserved the dunking.

I agree with you on that.

[ Sighs ] I hope Trina stays away from him.

Okay, what do you want to talk about first? Trina and spencer, or you and Cameron?


Okay, I’m not sure what’s happening here. Are you asking me for dating advice? Because that would be weird.

Oh, don’t worry. I’m not asking for your advice. And I’m definitely not asking for your permission. But I do want to know how you feel about it. I mean, do you have a problem with me dating Curtis?

Uh… [ Stammers ]

You can be honest with me.

Mom, all I want is for you to be happy.

[ Chuckles ] But?

It’s just, how long have you and Curtis — I-I mean, I saw the signs and thought something was there. Was I right?

Well, Curtis and I — I-I-I mean… yes. Yes, we have feelings for each other. But it wasn’t until last night that we decided to own up to those feelings and see where this is gonna go.

Any idea where that might be? Going, I mean.

Not yet, but I’ll keep you posted.

[ Chuckles ] Thanks.

You know, I just wanted to tell you first. I don’t want you hearing it from anybody else, you know?

I’m glad you told me.

What?

What?

What is it?

It’s just, does commissioner Ashford know? Because I thought you two were friends.


I walked into the savoy just in time to see Curtis and Portia in…a close moment.

Oh, I see. How close?

Close enough that their lips were touching.

I see. [ Sighs ] What did you do? What else? I left. You just walked away?

What was i supposed to do? Pull out my sidearm and tell them to freeze?

[ Sighs ] Jordan, I understand you’re hurt, angry. But let’s face it, Portia and Curtis share a past, and that can be a powerful draw. On second thought, maybe you did the right thing by leaving. This way, I can have a talk with Curtis — or Portia. Maybe I’ll just sit them both down.

Stella, stop. Please, just let this go. Our marriage didn’t work. Curtis moved on. And now I need to move on, too.


Look, I could never replace you. Or — or tommy, for that matter. But I did the very best I could to be a father figure to TJ for as long as I could. That is until, you know, things between Jordan and I.

Yeah, well, I was, uh — I was sorry to hear you two were splitting up. But just because the marriage is ending doesn’t diminish the family you helped create. Hey, you want proof? Look no further than TJ and molly. I wouldn’t be here now if molly hadn’t called out judge Carson for targeting defendants of color.

[ Chuckles ] Those kids are a hard act to follow.

You got that right. Sometimes, I think, uh — I think TJ is the man I’ve always wanted to be.

[ Chuckles ] All we can do is try, right?

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. Well, in the meantime, besides running the hottest club in town, now what else is new in your life, man?

The nightclub has me busy most nights. So, in the afternoons, I come here to recharge.

Yeah, uh, there are definitely worst places.

[ Chuckles ] You know, Shawn, tell me if I’m out of line, but, um, after you track down the person who’s responsible for Hayden’s shooting, what happens next?

Well, I’m keeping my options open. Why?

Because of the savoy. That’s my baby, and I’m working to assemble a team that I can trust.

Mm-hmm.

And I could certainly use a man with your skills.


So, if your friend killed who I think they did, they should be given the keys to the city. But it’s not about what’s right. It’s about the law.

Shouldn’t those two things be the same?

[ Sighs ] Well, theoretically. But, Elizabeth, the longer you stay quiet, say nothing, you know, you’re committing a crime. So, you need to tell me what’s going on so I-I can help you here.

Don’t you think I would if I could? There are other lives involved, other people who would suffer if I came forward.

Really? So, this friend, he really means a lot to you?


Think I probably owe you an apology.

For what?

Being so hard on you about keeping things from me.

[ Scoffs ] I never imagined myself living in a glass house and throwing stones. It’s — it’s not the same thing. Don’t let me off the hook.

I really wish I could. So, I-I — I need to ask you a question. Go ahead.

So, you — you confronted Peter on the roof, and you pushed him. He fell down the stairs, and he hit his head. And then what? You — you transported him here?

Yeah, that about sums it up.

Okay. How? You couldn’t have done it alone.


cam and i just started… you know, seeing each other, and I didn’t want to say anything until I knew there was something worth saying something about.

Okay. That’s weird — and great! And I’m happy for you.

You’re happy, right?

As long as you’re happy.

Yeah.

Does your dad know?

Not yet. And, please, you know, let me tell him.

I’m not gonna say anything. I won’t. I won’t.

Great.

You know that you can come to me about anything, right?

Yeah, I know. I know that. And I want you to know that this came as a surprise to me and cam, too. I mean, Trina’s told us that we were the last people to know.

Yes, that does happen sometimes.

[ Laughs ] Is that what happened between you and Jason?


I don’t want to hurt Jordan. And I hope that we can find a way to remain friends through this. But before I speak with her — which I most certainly will do — it was just so important that I speak to you about it first.

I’m glad you told me. I was expecting to get my tablet and be on my way, but this was kinda nice.

I’ll take “kinda nice.”

[ Both laugh ]

Well, I hope everything works out for you. Or, I hope everything you want to happen, happens. Is that good?

That’s good. I’ll take that, too.

Well, I texted joss I’d meet her, so…

Yeah, no, no. Go, go, go. Have fun. But you know what? I just — I just — I’m just so glad we were able to have this talk. You’re gonna be living on campus soon, and it’s just important that we keep this line of communication open. Right?

Right.

[ Door closes ]

[ Exhales sharply ] That went better than I thought it would. [ Sighs ]


Well, what kind of, uh, skills are you looking for? A bouncer for the velvet rope?

[ Laughs ] Nothing like that. Ah. But I’m pretty sure you’d be good at that, too.

Mm-hmm. I’m looking for somebody to help me run the place, and I hear you have managerial experience. At Kelly’s.

A diner, not a nightclub.

Okay, obviously, there are some differences, but the way I see it, what you don’t know, you could learn on the job.

Oh, man, I — look, I appreciate the offer.

I-I know what you’re gonna say. But I’m telling you this right now — this isn’t a handout. You would actually be helping me, because I need somebody that I can trust.

Ahhh… I want to say yes.

Then say it.

But, look — if you’re looking for something long term, I can’t give you that. My plans are to find whoever shot Hayden, and after that’s done, I need to figure out what kind of work I really want to do. You know? What kind of life I want to lead. But all I do know that’s for certain is, I’m my own boss, man.

I get it. Having owned my own pi firm, now owning a nightclub, both mean one thing — I’ve been my own boss, so I see why you want the same. But, um, what you’re talking about, these are future plans, correct?

Well, there’s no actual plans yet.

Right. So, until you put those plans in place, I could sure use you at the savoy. Just a couple of friends helping each other out, huh?

That’s what friends are for.

Ehhh… then I accept.

Alright. Welcome to the team.

Alright, alright. When I should start?

Brother, you can start when you get ready.

Damn, man. I wasn’t expecting to get out… [ Sighs ] …For a long time. But all of a sudden… here I am.

And I’m here for you, when you’re ready.


My friend needs help. I’m not gonna turn on him.

Okay, Elizabeth. I mean, I-I admire your loyalty. I do, I really do. But I — my advice to you is to just stay quiet. Don’t talk to anybody, because justifiable homicide does not apply in this particular crime. So, if the police come knocking at your door, dummy up and call me. Is that understood?

Understood.


Peter and i were alone on the roof when I confronted him. What happened after that is on me, and no one else.

I hear what you’re saying. But, um, like I told you, if my instincts led me to you, odds are the PCPD won’t be far behind. And the more I know, the more I can help you.

I told you everything.

If you did have help, it’s understandable that you’d want to protect them.

There’s no one else. So there’s nothing left to say. Once you open this freezer, you’ll see what I did.


Well, it was a little different for me and Jason.

Well, I know you guys have been friends forever.

Yeah, for more than half our lives.

If we’re talking percentages, cam and I have been friends pretty much all our lives. And, I mean, if it took you guys that long to figure it out, I guess it’s kind of the same.

Yeah, we could, like, all wear matching outfits and stuff.

Oh, my god, no.

[ Laughing ] Thank you for the offer, but I’ll pass.

It’s too bad you two don’t get along.

Oh! Never have. Never will.


Oh! I wanted to come say hi, but you and Curtis seemed like you were having a very important discussion.

Oh, it was. Okay. Well, I’ve gotta run, but not before I do this.

[ Both chuckle ] Yeah. Please don’t tell me I’m all grown up now.

Well, even if you are?

[ Stammers ] I know. It has been a while. A minute or two, yeah. Stop, you’re gonna make me cry at the pool. Okay, bye. Bye.

[ Laughs ] Well, she has grown all up.

Oh, god, you don’t know the half of it.

Well, I’d love to hear what I’ve missed.

And I would love to share that with you. But first, I want to talk about you and your future and hoping that it has something to do with me and my family. Where have you been? What’s going on?

Oh, my god, joss. You’re not gonna believe this.

Believe what?

[ Sighs ] I’m already enthralled.

On second thought, maybe this was a bad idea.

Huh. No argument here.

[ Sighs ]


[ Door creaks ]

Please. [ Chuckles ] Hi. Um, what the hell is that?

Oh, just a little souvenir from when you kicked the door in.

Oh, right. Sorry about that.

Don’t be sorry. You saved our lives.


Signed, sealed… and on its way to be delivered to the courthouse. Feel better now?

Actually, yes. I do. Curtis is free.

[ Sighs ] I’m free. And now there’s no more looking back, no more asking myself what might have been.

[ Sighs ] I thought my nephew meant more to you.

Stella.

[ Scoffs ] I love Curtis. And at one point, he loved me, too. But our marriage didn’t work. So, once those papers are filed… the rest of my life can finally begin.


Elizabeth, can I, uh, talk to you for a second?

Whoa, wait. Whoa, whoa. Hang on a second. Is this your friend? ‘Cause he’s got his own lawyer.

No, no, it’s not Jason.

Okay, that’s good. W-we need to just — we need to talk about something else.

Okay. You do know, Jason, if anything happens to her, I will —

I know, I know. I’m gonna have to answer to you.

Yeah, you will.

Thank you for meeting me. I’ll call you.

Okay. Bye, Elizabeth. Okay.

[ Lock clicks ]

Elizabeth: Did you get my message? I think Anna knows about Peter. Please tell me you got to his body before she did.

I was afraid someday that I was going to have to identify Peter’s body. You know, that is, if I… I didn’t end his life myself. Really is the only two ways… that this could have played out.

I guess I saved you the trouble.

For as much as he hated Faison, he turned out the same way. Choices he made… led him here.


Well, Curtis and I had a conversation, and I think I’m gonna help him out at the savoy.

[ Sighs ] Okay. Well, I’m really happy for Curtis, but I’m sad for Jason and me. We could really use your expertise.

Okay, I have no doubt you can handle whatever comes up.

[ Laughs ]

Especially since you and Jason are, uh…[ Clears throat ] …In it together?

Yes, we are, and we’re very happy.

[ Laughs ] And while I’m sure you will make the savoy even more successful, I want you to know that you always have a place with us.

Well, I’ll remember that. And thank you for stabbing Jason.

Oh, anytime.

[ Both laugh ]


You know, I promised my mom I’d stop pushing spencer in the pool because it’s dangerous, but I can make an exception.

What did he do to you?

I tried to prevent Trina from making a fool of herself by attempting to “parent trap” Ava and my father.

“Parent trapping”? How?

I sent them each a drink and had the server tell them they were from each other.

That’s a great idea.

I know, right? And it would have worked if Mr. I’m not a fan of my stepmother hadn’t outed me and ruined it. That’s it. I’m done trying to help people.

Au revoir.

Ciao, loser.

[ Sighs ] So, how did spencer try to help you? Or am I reading that wrong?

Oh, no. He helped me alright. He told my mom about me and Cameron literally seconds before I was going to.

Oh, how did she take it?

I mean, it was fine, but it’s awkward.

I feel you. You know what’s even more awkward? When your mom opens up to you.


And Trina was okay with it?

She seemed to be, yes.

You told her it was me?

I did.

I mean me, not some other Curtis.

No, no. She knew the Curtis I was speaking of, yes.

Okay, so, when you told her that we were gonna start “seeing each other,” are you sure she knew what you meant?

I was very clear.

Huh.

Which was, I don’t know, kind of new.[ Chuckles ] Not just because I haven’t really dated much since Marcus and I split, but because she’s my little girl, you know?

And yet, she’s not anymore. She’s a grown woman.

Mm-hmm.

And instead of, like, her always confiding in me, it’s — it was kind of like we’re confiding in each other, you know?

Right. And how does that make you feel?

Good. It felt really good. Like my daughter and i are actually, I don’t know, becoming friends. And I could really use one of those right about now.

[ Sighs ] I assume you’re thinking about Jordan.

Aren’t you?

Yeah. Uh, I’m thinking that I’d better tell her about us before she finds out some other way.


[ Knock on door ] Commissioner, you’re wanted in interrogation.

Thanks. And thank you, Stella, for your concern.  [ Sighs ] But I do have to ask you to just —

I know, I know. You want me to mind my own business.

I do.

Then I will. And, please, don’t worry about me. I’ll show myself out.  [ Sighs ] One thing you should know by now, Jordan… my family is my business. Oh, lord, forgive me. But it’s for a good cause.


I knew this moment would come. The whole end of the road, getting caught thing. But now that it’s here, I’m almost relieved. I’m glad it was you.

Yeah. Let’s not put it off any longer, then. Ready?

Yeah.


Yes, I did get your message. I did not cross paths with Anna. Spinelli was able to take care of the security cameras so I could get to the basement unseen.

But once I got into the lab —

Just tell me what you did with the body.

Nothing. I opened the freezer, Peter’s body isn’t there.

On the next “General Hospital” —

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Phyllis: Wow, look at you. You walk in here, accusing me of things. You better tell me what it is.

Kyle: I don’t like these head games you’re playing with tara.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Excuse me?

Kyle: Pretending to be her friend when you’re anything but. What’s your angle? What are you trying to accomplish? I understand you’re upset that summer left town, feel the need to find a scapegoat, but you’ve already laid blame on me and the child I refuse to walk away from. Even hinted that I might be interested at starting things up again with his mom, which isn’t even remotely true, so stop taking your anger out on tara because you don’t trust me.

Phyllis: No, it’s tara i don’t trust.

Kyle: Oh, why the hell not?

Phyllis: Kyle, seriously? Do I need to paint a picture for you? Her wealthy husband kicked her out. Now she’s looking for another powerful, wealthy family to latch onto for her and her kid.

Kyle: I am that little boy’s father, and we invited tara to stay.

Phyllis: You invited her to stay because she orchestrated it that way.

Kyle: Oh, damn it, phyllis, that’s —

Phyllis: She’s taking advantage of your generosity. She’s taking advantage of your love for your son. Can you not see that? And tara, I believe, is the person that drove my daughter out of town.

Nikki: Should we order some dessert, darling?

Summer: Oh, my gosh, no. I am so stuffed. The food here is amazing. You know, I debate taking a long lunch every day while I’m at work, even though it’d be very unprofessional of me.

Victor: Of course you don’t, do you?

Summer: No, no, of course not. No, you saw how serious and driven everyone is at marchetti, which I’m so happy that you guys were able to tour the offices.

Nikki: It’s a very impressive operation.

Summer: Right, it is first rate from top to bottom — the resources, the design team, the clients. Oh, which, speaking of, you guys won’t believe who popped in for a fitting last week.

Nikki: Oh, um…european royalty?

Summer: So close. Leslie brooks! She’s actually gonna be wearing one of our gowns for the performance that you guys are going to see.

Nikki: Oh, my goodness. Now I really can’t wait.

Summer: [ Laughs ] Um, also, I’m sorry that you guys didn’t get to meet angelina marchetti while you toured the studio. She’s off traveling, so next time you guys visit, we will for sure make that happen.

Victor: Now, sweetheart, as wonderful as all that sounds, i remember that when you were offered to come to milan, you know, leave genoa city, you went through a difficult time, didn’t you? Have you had any second thoughts about your decision to move away?

Sally: Well, hello there, stranger.

Jack: “Stranger”? Has it been that long?

Sally: I guess not.

Jack: Have a seat. So, how’s your day going so far?

Sally: Good. I just keep thinking about the dinner we had the other night. I really had a great time.

Jack: So did I.

Sally: I miss spending time with you like that. But it is obvious that kyle wasn’t too happy about it because he made that very clear when I ran into him.

Jack: My son has a protective streak when it comes to me. And given certain aspects of your history, I think that’s understandable. In the end, when all is said and done, kyle just wants me to be happy.

Sally: Well, what a coincidence. I want the exact same thing.

Jack: How about that.

Sally: Given the lovely evening that we had and feeling so connected to you again, i can’t help wondering… where do we go from here?

Tara: First of all, I would never try to keep you and harrison from seeing each other. It’s not fair to him.

Ashland: But having sole custody for you is.

Tara: I didn’t ask you here for that. We need to talk about how we’re gonna break the news to harrison about your illness.

Ashland: Oh, and you’re willing to do that for me? That’s very big of you.

Tara: I spoke to a therapist, sharon rosales, and I’d like to share with you what she said about the subject.

Ashland: Yeah, through your filter, no doubt.

Tara: With a child harrison’s age, sharon said it would be best if we were honest and forthright, that we shouldn’t treat your cancer or diagnosis like it was something scary to be hidden away. Illness and death are a part of life, and harrison is old enough to grasp that. We should use language that he can understand when we explain things, and we just need to keep reminding him that we love him and that he has this whole family here that supports him.

Ashland: Well, everything that you’re saying makes sense.

Tara: Good.

Ashland: And we will sit down and have a talk with harrison together, after I speak with him alone.

Tara: Ashland.

Ashland: This news is gonna be devastating enough for him. Let’s not confuse him about where things stand between you and me, give him false hope that we’re a couple again.

Tara: This will be a huge moment. He’ll be upset. I doubt he’s even gonna be thinking about that.

Ashland: A small child whose parents are in the throes of divorcing? I guarantee you that’s going to be part of the calculus.

Tara: I am harrison’s mother. We need to tell him together. It’s what the therapist advised.

Ashland: But this is our decision, and this is my illness. Why are you fighting me on this?

Tara: I am just trying to do what’s best for harrison.

Ashland: Oh, come off it, tara. The only one that you’re thinking about now is yourself.

Victoria: This is a surprise.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, I hope you don’t mind. I just want to stop by and talk to you about how the kids are handling the situation with ashland living here.

Victoria: Is there something going on that I should know about? Johnny have another tummy ache?

Billy: No, he’s feeling better. In fact, he’s back at day camp today.

Victoria: Oh, good. That’s good. Listen, thank you. I appreciate you working with me to make this okay for them and letting them spend the majority of their time with you and lily, at least for the time being.

Billy: We love having them. Before I forget, I saw you and nate talking. I’m assuming you were discussing ashland’s condition.

Victoria: It’s funny you should ask, because I happen to know you spoke to him yourself about the exact same thing.

Billy: I don’t know where you’re getting your information from.

Victoria: You were quizzing nate about an anonymous friend with the exact same symptoms as ashland. What are you doing, billy? Why would you do that? Are you planning another tasteless invasion of the man’s privacy? Or are you truly that concerned about ashland’s condition?

Billy: The person I’m concerned about in all of this is you. Ok everyone, our mission is to provide complete,

Additional sponsorship

provided by…

Jack: Gee, I thought it was obvious. I — I definitely feel a connection with you.

Sally: Well, I am a woman of many talents, but mind-reading is not one of them, so I assume nothing.

Jack: Okay, fair enough. Um…when I’m with you, there is just a certain ease. You’re certainly easy on the eyes. But you’re intelligent and you’re witty and you’re a fighter. And I admire that, even if that sometimes is to your detriment.

Sally: That’s all too true.

Jack: I’m willing to give us another shot. See where this thing goes.

Sally: Sounds good to me. Although there will be people that won’t be as excited.

Jack: Well, they can have their opinions. I make my own decisions. I’m willing to give this another shot because I think you’re worth it. I hope you believe that. Your smarts, your talents are enough to get you anywhere you want to go in life.

Sally: Well, that hasn’t always been my experience, but…when you say it, I… believe it.

Jack: Good, I’m glad.

Sally: Being on the defensive all the time, feeling like you’ve got to fight to hold on to what you’ve got, it’S… it’s exhausting. And I really don’t want to do it anymore. But I know that I have to win back your trust, so that’s my goal.

Jack: Happy as I am to hear that, I do not want you feeling like you’re on trial.

Sally: Okay, well, then maybe if we went on another date, I could relax.

Jack: Well, why don’t I make some arrangements, and I’ll give you a call.

Sally: I can’t wait.

Kyle: Let’s say you’re right. Tara forced summer to break up with me and leave town. How’d she do it? Where’s your proof? ‘Cause surely you have some.

Phyllis: Nah, no proof.

Kyle: Yeah, that’s what i thought.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Let me tell you something. No, I don’t have proof right now. I don’T. But when I get it, kyle, you’ll be the first person I come to, okay? And I really didn’t want to have this conversation with you right now, but you sort of forced my hand, but I’m not mad. I’m not mad because this is on your radar. Thank goodness. Tara is the reason that my daughter felt the need to break off your engagement and fly on the other side of the ocean.

Kyle: Summer said that to you? Or is this just you, twisting things to fit the story you’ve concocted?

Phyllis: Oh, yeah, how dare you. How dare you. Summer is my daughter. I know her better than anyone. She would’ve never done this. She was forced. I know that. She was forced, and you know what? She didn’t even want me to do this and uncover the truth, but I’m doing it. I don’t care what she says. She’s the one who told me to stop.

Summer: Uh, second thoughts about…?

Victor: Well, you know, severing ties and pulling up stakes.

Nikki: This job offer came out of the blue. You barely had any time to think about it.

Summer: I mean, european haute couture is very hard to break into, so who needed time, really? Okay, yeah, that came out wrong. Now that I’m in italy, yeah, of course I miss my family and genoa city and, yeah, yes, I miss kyle. I am not gonna deny that, but I still think I made the right choice. I wasn’t ready to be a stepmom. I wasn’t ready to deal with kyle’s ex being a constant presence. It was just — it was too much. You know? And I’m sure that kyle is happy to be with his son, and I had to do what was right for me.

Victor: So you think you made the right decision?

Summer: Yeah, absolutely. Right, this is an amazing opportunity, and I feel like I’m at peace with everything.

Victor: Well, then I’m glad to hear that.

Nikki: Me, too.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Victor: I’m sorry, but I need to take that.

Summer: Of course.

Victor: Excuse me. Yes? No, I’m still in milan. Did you get the estimate? Yeah?

[ Door closes ]

Nikki: Well, everything you’ve said sounds reasonable, but it’s just the two of us now, and I want you to be completely honest. Is this really the life you want? With voltaren arthritis pain gel

Kyle: Sorry, no way do i believe tara somehow manipulated summer into leaving. Why would she say she didn’t love me? Why not fight for what we had?

Phyllis: Kyle, listen, this may be difficult for you, but i want you to look back on all the conversations that you had with my daughter. When you decided to move tara and her kid into your house while you were working out a wedding with my daughter? Think over all those conversations and what she said that maybe you didn’t hear at the time.

Kyle: No, no! No. I am letting you do this. I have spent weeks going over every moment I shared with summer, things I could’ve missed or done wrong, trying to find a clue as to explain what happened. I even blamed sally for it.

Phyllis: Okay, stop right there. You’re spot on with sally. You are spot on. I want you too look at this. Tara and sally have both benefited ever since summer left town. I mean, sally, she has her job at jcv, the job that she was after since she arrived in town, and the other one, well, she’s living in your guest room. Those two have benefited ever since my daughter’s been gone. That is not a coincidence. They are in this together.

Ashland: I need to find a way to explain to that sweet boy just how sick his father is, to prepare him for the day that I will no longer be in his life, and I wouldn’t be forced to do this if it weren’t for the news of my illness, my personal, private business being leaked to the media. By you, of that I have no doubt.

Tara: So now you’re gonna resort to wild unfounded accusations?

Ashland: Well, you lied about harrison’s paternity for years. I know what you’re capable of.

Tara: This is exactly what i don’t want you talking to harrison alone, because of the awful things you’re gonna tell him about me.

Ashland: Do you honestly think that I would waste one second I have left on this earth to be vengeful, trying to turn our son against his mother? If I am lucky, I have months with that sweet boy, and you have decades.

Tara: And you resent that, don’t you? You resent me.

Ashland: Oh, this is — you are a master at turning things around and making literally everything about you. No, really, it’s a gift.

Tara: There’s my answer.

Ashland: You’re clearly not thinking what’s best for our son, or else you wouldn’t have filed for sole custody.

Tara: I wasn’t trying to do anything —

Ashland: Don’t do this. Don’t use harrison as a way to gain control of the situation.

Tara: How can you say that with a straight face? You are literally the most controlling man I have ever known. You love to mess with people. You have raised vindictiveness to an art form. Victoria might buy this kinder, gentler version of you, but i have had years of experience with the real thing.

Ashland: You know, this prognosis and the reality I have little time left has definitely changed me, and you know that. But you have not changed a bit. You have traded one comfortable life for another.

Tara: Are you finished?

Ashland: I can only hope that somebody, someone sees all the way through you and exposes you for the fraud that you truly are. And then the whole world will see your true colors.

Billy: Okay, let me just be very clear about something, okay? When I asked nate his opinion about a sick friend, I did not know how close the two of you had gotten. Nate saw right through me and assumed it was for a story — a story that we decided not to publish, by the way.

Victoria: Don’t make any promises that you can’t keep. News is your business, and ashland is news.

Billy: When I told you that i was happy for you, I meant that. Clearly he makes you very happy. And ashland’s not gonna talk to me about how much time he has left. I only put two-and-two together when you let it slip that the kids are only gonna be staying with me for a few months.

Victoria: We have no idea how long ashland has.

Billy: Well, then the most important thing is to follow through with your plan and bring as much joy to each other as you possibly can. Look, vick, I got to be honest. It kind of took my breath away when I realized that you’re not just taking care of a friend or a business partner that got a bad diagnosis. You love him.

Victoria: Don’t sound so surprised.

Billy: You know, after our conversation, I told lily that i think you met the right person at the right time. And how terrible it makes me feel that you’re not gonna have a lot of time together. And I know you’re being brave and you’re trying to put a positive spin on everything, but it’s got to be really devastating for you. And I just hope that you know I’m talking to you as your ex, as the father to your children, as a friend. And you can talk to me about anything, and it’ll stay between us.

Victoria: You’re right. It’s awful. I am in love with him. Ever notice how stiff clothes can feel rough on your skin?

Victoria: You know, ashland, he’s just — he’s such a proud man. And with good reason. He’s — he’s fierce, he’s determined, he’s so intelligent. That’s why it’s really hard watching him struggle with this cancer that he didn’t even know that he had. Makes me wonder if maybe we shouldn’t have merged our companies.

Billy: Well, I don’t know why you would think that. He’s trusting you with his legacy. I mean, he’s got to feel really good knowing that you’re carrying on his vision.

Victoria: It’s just that

[Sighs] So much of who ashland is, is tied up in locke communications group. It’s like he’s handing over this vital part of himself. This is something that gives him purpose.

Billy: Vick, he’s got a lot to live for. And he’s clearly got enough money to get whatever medical help he wants. Is there really nothing his doctors can do?

Victoria: There is treatment for this type of cancer, but the side effects are brutal. It’s not a cure, billy. At best, it will just add some time to his life.

Billy: Are you saying that he’s giving up without a fight?

Victoria: Ash hates the idea of spending his final days being pumped full of drugs that are just gonna leave him feeling weak anyway.

Billy: I find it hard to believe that you’re going along with this.

Victoria: I didn’T. I have been trying to convince him to get the treatments even though he made me promise that i wouldn’T.

Billy: I mean, of course he’s gonna want to spend as much time with you as possible and his kid, of course.

Victoria: Yeah, which makes it even more reprehensible that tara would seek sole custody of harrison. She claims that she’s protecting him. It’s ridiculous. Ashland cut her off financially, and she’s just acting out of spite.

Billy: Does he know how lucky he is that he found you?

Victoria: I hope you know that’s why things are moving along so quickly. I know — I know I’m not acting like my usual cautious self.

Billy: Now that you’ve explained it to me, I can — I understand it.

Victoria: You know, sometimes it’s overwhelming thinking about ashland dying. I just — I can’t let him know how much it hurts.

Billy: That was my concern all along, vick, that you two would get too close and you would fall in too deep.

Victoria: And this is how you support me? By saying “I told you so”?

Phyllis: I understand why you don’t see this.

Kyle: Stop. Enough. You’re totally reaching. Tara and sally barely know each other. They just recently started working together at fenmore’S.

Phyllis: Okay. Kyle, that’s what she wants you to think. Those two are a lot closer than you think.

Kyle: Okay, I get you would’ve preferred tara to pack up and go back to new york.

Phyllis: Yes! Yes, I would have, because that’s where she lives. Why didn’t she?

Kyle: Because I didn’t want to live 1,000 miles away from my son. I intend to be a solid, reliable presence in harrison’s life, and that’s even more important now that ashland is so sick. I get that that’s hard for you to accept. It was apparently a lot harder for summer to accept than she let on. I am asking you to stop taking your emotion out on tara and stop spreading this nonsense that she’s involved in some plot with sally spectra. Tara is going through enough. She doesn’t need people gossiping behind her back or to deal with that.

Phyllis: Alright, I’ll do that on one condition.

Kyle: Here we go.

Phyllis: One condition. Don’t let yourself so blindly be clouded by your love for your son that you can’t see what tara’s doing. Don’t accept what she says so blindly as truth. Okay? Can you do that?

Kyle: Okay, I have things to do. I’m not wasting my time on this anymore. And you know what? You can tell yourself tara orchestrated all this if that makes you feel better, but the bottom line is summer left me. It was her choice.

Summer: Alright. So you think I’m sugarcoating things.

Nikki: I think you don’t want to worry your grandfather and me. But in order for me to feel good about you moving here, I need to really understand what you’re thinking and feeling. Are you truly happy here in milan or simply resigned?

Summer: No, everything that i said before, I meant. You know, I have a great job in an amazing city. And frankly, I don’t think it could’ve come at a better time. There was always a reason why kyle and I would go back and forth, and I just feel like if it was meant to be, it wouldn’t be so hard and there’d be no hesitation on either of our parts, right?

Nikki: I think you’re asking the wrong person.

Summer: Okay, touché.

Nikki: This job with angelina marchetti is very prestigious and it’ll be fun and exciting. I’m sure you’ll gain some fabulous experience.

Summer: But?

Nikki: Even though you knew there was this opening, you didn’t pursue it. This job fell in your lap.

Summer: All I know is, um, now that I’m here, it feels right. And I got to hold on to that ’cause being away from kyle, that — that does not feel right.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Tara: If you’re through with the mud-slinging, can we please get back to the matter at hand?

Ashland: You know, I have neither the desire nor the strength to continue this. We’ll figure out how and when to discuss what’s going on with me to harrison another time.

Tara: Why not now?

Ashland: Because you have made this so adversarial, so what would be the point? As for sitting down and actually discussing this with harrison — who is a smart, sensitive boy — he’s for sure going to pick up on our animosity, and that’s the last thing that I want.

Tara: Right, it’s always me. I’m the problem.

Jack: Everything alright here?

Ashland: Yeah, we were just discussing my illness and how to handle it with harrison. I know you were in the park the other day when I didn’t handle things so well.

Jack: I did not witness the incident at the time.

Ashland: But you have seen the video.

Jack: Not your finest hour.

Ashland: To put it mildly. I sure would like to get my hands on whoever’s responsible for putting it online.

Jack: I can’t blame you there.

Ashland: But right now I need to help harrison figure out what’s going with me in a way that’s not going to frighten or confuse him. And I would really like your help convincing tara that this is a conversation that I need to have with my son alone.

Jack: That can’t have been easy.

Tara: No, it wasn’T. Kyle had a therapist, sharon rosales, come drop by this morning to discuss how best to broach it with harrison.

Jack: I think sharon’s a great resource.

Tara: Yeah, she recommended that we talk to him together, but he has other ideas, as you just heard. And then he went on a personal attack. I just…just want to do what’s best for harrison.

Jack: I think that’s the right priority. And don’t forget — you have support. Our family is here to help you.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Sally: Sally spectra.

Phyllis: Hey, sally, it’s phyllis. Um, ugh, I need to talk to you about something.

Sally: Well, hey, it’s my new best friend, the one who decided to live and let live. You didn’t see me sitting right in front of you?

Phyllis: That’s crazy. I didn’T. Sorry, it’s been a long day.

Sally: Okay. You have my attention.

Phyllis: I’d rather show you.

Victoria: I should have never confided in you. What was I thinking? I don’t know why I never learn.

Billy: Hold on. I think you misunderstood what i was trying to say or I said it wrong. Vick, please.

[ Sighs ] Look, when you are in pain, I am in pain. And I’m watching you open your heart to a guy that is in a really tough place. And you’re gonna have to watch him succumb to this disease. And I didn’t understand why you would want to do that. But I get it. You’re in love with him. This is my longwinded way of saying that I feel terrible that you have to go through that.

Victoria: I know what you’re thinking right now. You’re thinking I… should get out of this while I can.

Billy: No. I’m thinking the opposite of that. Victoria: You sound like you really mean that.

Billy: I think you’re exactly what ashland needs right now. I think you need each other. There are times, I wonder…

Ashland: Well, that’s quite the endorsement, [Sighs] Considering the source.

Billy: I meant every word i said.

Ashland: I believe you did.

Billy: After talking with victoria, it’s very clear that you two are committed to each other. And she’s not gonna listen to me if I try to get her to bail either way.

Ashland: It’s a good point.

Billy: Look, if I haven’t been very clear, I think your situation sucks. And I’m really sorry that you’re going through it.

Ashland: Well, that’s very kind of you. But do you feel bad enough to keep reports of my predicament off your media platform? Uh, not for myself. For harrison’s sake. Even someone that young can get wind of things on the internet.

Billy: [ Inhales deeply ] No salacious stories. No stories of any kind, not from me. You have my word.

Ashland: I appreciate that.

Victoria: We both do. Thank you for being such a good listener.

Billy: Anytime.

Ashland: [ Sighs ]

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

Ashland: Uh, what did you need to say to your ex that turned him into such a good listener?

Summer: You know, at least 10 times a day, some awesome, unbelievable thing will happen, and my first thought is, “kyle’s gonna flip. I can’t wait to tell him.” And then I remember…

Nikki: I know the feeling.

Summer: Kyle was my best friend.

[ Sighs ] You know, we even worked in the same building, and… when you’re around someone 24/7…

Nikki: I know. When they’re gone, it leaves a hole in your life.

Summer: We were a team, and it just feels so unnatural to be so disconnected from him.

Nikki: Well, you two shared a long history. Even when your lives took you to different places, you always managed to find a way to get back together. Darling, what you had with kyle is very rare and special. I would be surprised to hear that you didn’t feel the sense of loss that you’re describing.

Summer: [ Sighs ] I just wanted to be with kyle for so long that [Sighs] It really hurts to imagine a future

[Gulps] That doesn’t include him.

[ Sighs ] But I got to let go of that feeling. I mean, I have to. My life is in italy now.

[ Sobs ] So, uh, yeah, you’re right. I’m — I’m not happy yet. But I hope that I’ll get there.

[ Sighs ]

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] We have an employee who’s still learning the system. And, um, they may have erroneously charged your room with something, so I just… if you could do me a favor and just, you know, take a look at this, tell me what’s not yours.

Sally: How many stars does this hotel have? ‘Cause it might be a few too many.

Phyllis: Uh, well, if, uh, one of those charges is not yours, I’ll make it right. That’s the mark of a five-star hotel.

Sally: Okay, well, here is a charge right at the top here — minibar, $36. I don’t even have a minibar in my room. You gave me a fridge instead. Remember?

Phyllis: Oh, my apologies. I’ll make that right. Just mark off whatever isn’t yours, and I’ll take care of it.

Sally: Oh, “expect to get cheated and scammed.” How do you like that for a headline?

Phyllis: For what?

Sally: For the review about this hotel that I’m about to post, once I get through [Sighs] With all these bogus charges.

[ Paper rustling ] Oh, my god. Not touching is still touching protection.

[ Pen scratching paper ]

[ Paper rustling ]

We have a problem.

Phyllis has figured things out.

[ Paper rustling ]

[ Cellphone chimes ]

We have a problem.

Phyllis has figured things out.

Tara: [ Sighs ]

[ Door opens ] Damn it.

[ Sighs ]

Kyle: What’s wrong?

Tara: Oh, um, the usual.

[ Chuckles ]

Kyle: Hmm. Ashland? Take it your talk didn’t go well.

Tara: Oh, I know I shouldn’t take things personally, but he was in rare form today.

Kyle: I’m sorry he upset you. But did the two of you manage to come to an agreement?

Tara: Ashland is insisting that he talks to harrison alone, breaks the news to him without anyone else there.

Kyle: Hmm. So, the exact opposite of what sharon advised.

Tara: I know. I told him that, and he wasn’t interested. The man is so self-centered.

Kyle: Hmm.

Tara: But I [Sighs] — I suppose I would be, too, in his shoes. Guess I should be a little bit more understanding.

Kyle: Hmm. So, where did you and ashland leave things?

Tara: Oh, we’re gonna talk again. Soon, probably.

Kyle: After the two of you have had a chance to cool off a little bit.

Tara: Don’t worry, kyle. Everything is fine. I mean, ashland and I will — will work it out. Somehow. [ Chuckles ]

Victoria: [ Sighs ] I told billy what I’m feeling.

[ Sighs ] I just feel a little overwhelmed from time to time. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. And also I admitted to him that… I’m in love with you. I realize this is going very quickly, but this is not a normal circumstance. We don’t really have any time to waste. I need what you bring to my life. I’ll take what I can get. I love you, ashland. And don’t tell me not to feel that way. Don’t even try.

Ashland: I-I guess I need to find a way to stay alive.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Do you mean that —

Ashland: Yeah, I-I-I-I-I — I’ll start treatment. Then, maybe I’ll get lucky and it’ll actually work. I sure as hell hope so.

Victoria: [ Sighs ]

Ashland: [ Sighs ]

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Steffy: Bye, kelly. Have fun at the zoo with amelia. Love you!

Finn: Do you hear that, bud? Your sister gets to go to the zoo, and you get to hang out here with your folks.

Steffy: Are you gonna do one of your world-famous jokes?

Finn: I thought you hated my jokes.

Steffy: Oh, your– your dad jokes.

Finn: Yeah?

Steffy: No, go for it. Go for it.

Finn: Okay, you know what? Just for that, knock-knock.

Steffy: Oh. I forgot. I have to review those pages, the financial reports.

Finn: Oh. No, come back here. Your mom’s a nut, you know that? But she’s also smart, fierce, and drop-dead gorgeous, inside and out. See, hayes, your mom has this great, big heart, and she loves with everything she is. Especially you and your sister. You’re the most important things in her world, just like you are with mine. And you know what? Let’s make a pact. Okay? You and me. See, your mom didn’t go for the impromptu wedding, and I get it. She wants to plan more. But I think if we stick together, we can make it happen real soon.

Paris: This is one of your most inspired designs yet.

Zende: You think so?

Paris: For sure.

Zende: Thank you. It means a lot coming from you.

Paris: Well, I am a zende forrester fan. I have been practically since the first day we met.

Zende: And I’m glad we did, that our paths crossed the way they have.

Paris: Yeah, me too.

Zende: You know, getting to know you, the amazing girl you are, I’m just so grateful that I have you in my life.

Paris: Yeah, I feel the same about you. Especially with all the changes going on around here. Zoe leaving.

Zende: I know that’s hit you hard. Have you heard from her?

Paris: There’s been a few texts. I told her that I’d moved in with steffy and finn, and she was happy for me. But… hey. Did I lose you?

Zende: No. No. It’s just, um… there’s something I wanna say to you. About the two of us.

Paris: I’m not sure what you mean.

Zende: Well, what I said about you being amazing, I totally meant that. Along with everything else I’ve ever said about you.

Paris: All the good stuff you mean.

Zende: Now, how can there be anything but good stuff? When you’re as open as you are. How you’ve embraced people wherever they are, whatever they need. Like you’ve done with me.

Paris: Well, I think it’s a little different between us.

Zende: It is. Because of who we are to each other, how quickly we’ve connected.

Paris: I’m still not sure what you’re getting at, zende. What are you trying to tell me?

Steffy: Oh, no. Donna sent over the wrong files. She sent last year’s first quarter numbers. I need this year’S.

Finn: Can’t you access them on your computer?

Steffy: No. No. The system’s down for maintenance. She messengered these last night, and I don’t know what to do.

Finn: It’s no problem. I was gonna do a diaper run anyway. I’ll just stop by forrester and pick up the right file.

Steffy: You sure you don’t mind?

Finn: Not at all. I took the day off to be with you and my son, and whatever you two need, I’m right here. You be good, little man.

Ridge: Hey. Is this a good time for my daily grandson fix?

Finn: Hayes was just saying he needs his daily grandpa fix. I’m on my way out.

Ridge: Hospital?

Finn: No. Forrester. Steffy will explain. I love you.

Steffy: I love you. Bye.

Finn: Love you too, gramps.

Steffy: [ Laughs ]

Ridge: Quite a guy.

Steffy: Yes, he is.

Ridge: Hello, little man. How you doing? Hi. Read any good books lately? Yeah.

Steffy: It’s so crazy. Like, who knew when I opened my eyes at the hospital and I saw this handsome doctor standing over me, that he was gonna be my fiancé, the father of my son. I feel so blessed to have finn in my life.

Ridge: Well, he is too.

Steffy: There’s something you should know.

[ Hayes crying ]

Ridge: Oh.

Steffy: Oh, I’ll get him.

Ridge: You need your mama.

[ Hayes crying ]

Steffy: It’s okay, baby. It’s okay. (Denise) my husband has lung cancer from smoking.

Zende: I’ll talk to hope and back to you.

Paris: Problem?

Zende: Possible fabric shipment mix-up. I won’t bore you with the details.

Paris: Oh, no worries. I enjoy listening to your work.

Zende: Even the mundane stuff like missing fabric?

Paris: Yeah. I mean, you listen to me talk about budgets and fundraising. That can get pretty mundane too.

Zende: Yeah, but your work isn’T.

Paris: Neither is yours. Hope for the future is having a big impact. Diversity. Sustainability. Women empowerment. That message is powerful. And your designs are a big part of that message.

Zende: You see? This is why I like you. You’re always so positive.

Paris: But?

Zende: No. No “buts.” You know how I feel about you, paris.

Paris: Yeah, I thought I did, but maybe you should tell me.

Zende: Look, we’ve been dating, and… clearly there’s an attraction here. It’s just… I mean, we’re coworkers. We’ve been doing really well for ourselves, and I would just hate to mess that up for either of us.

Paris: So, what are you saying?

Zende: We should just be a little careful. Am I making sense?

Paris: Yeah. Actually, I’ve been thinking the same thing.

Zende: Really?

Paris: Yeah. I mean, we’ve built something really special, and I wouldn’t wanna mess that up, especially now that I don’t have any more family in L.A. I don’t wanna lose you too.

Zende: So then we’re…cool just taking things a bit slower?

Paris: Mm-hmm. In fact, I think it might make us tighter in some ways.

Zende: I agree. Okay, then. We’ll take this one day at a time.

Steffy: He is back to dreamland.

Ridge: That’s a mother’s touch right there.

Steffy: Well, this isn’t my first rodeo.

Ridge: But it’s his first rodeo. And how’s your, uh– how’s little finn boy doing?

Steffy: Good. He’s really bonding with hayes.

Ridge: I can see that. He’s a good guy.

Steffy: He likes you, too.

Ridge: Well, come on, what’s not to like? I’m attractive. I’m rich. He wants to be on my good side.

Steffy: Oh, my gosh.

Ridge: It’s nice to see you like that. You’re happy. You are happy, right?

Steffy: Yeah, I am.

Ridge: Good. You deserve that after the year you had with… liam and hope and up and down and up and down. You deserve this “happily ever after” with finn, which I don’t know anything about this guy.

Steffy: That’s actually what I wanted to talk to you about. That’s so crazy you said that. Um… yeah, it just feels like it’s all, like– it’s happening fast. I mean, made our proposal. We have hayes. He wanted to marry me here the other day.

Ridge: Wait. What?

Steffy: Yeah. It was actually really cute. He wanted hayes to be the witness. It was adorable.

Ridge: Wait, wait. You didn’t do this, did you?

Steffy: No. I wouldn’t break your heart like that.

Ridge: Okay, good. That is good, right?

Steffy: Yeah. It’s– it’s good. I just, you know… we have hayes, and we’re a family. And… it’s just, like, a lot right now.

Ridge: So you don’t– you don’t want that?

Steffy: No, I do. I don’t know what I’m saying. I’m tired, dad. Just–okay. I want–I can’t imagine my life without finn. You know, he’s absolutely amazing. He’s an incredible partner, incredible fiancé, a spectacular father already. And I don’t have to share his heart with anybody else. It’s so nice.

Ridge: Makes sense.

Steffy: Things are really good right now, you know? And I really don’t wanna mess it up. And no offense or anything, but, you know, everything that happened with, um… with you and brooke and mom.

Ridge: Oh, yeah. No, no, no.

Steffy: That environment.

Ridge: I understand. No offense taken.

Steffy: Okay. I just wanna…

Ridge: I’m sure finn understands that too.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, he gets it. He just, uh… he did ask me if I still had feelings for liam.

Ridge: Do you still have feelings for liam?

Steffy: We’re always gonna be connected. He’s kelly’s father.

Ridge: But you don’t love him.

Steffy: No. No. He’s happy with hope, and I’m really happy with finn. It’s nice to get off the roller coaster. It feels great.

Ridge: Yeah. So everything’s gonna be fine as long as you don’t get married here with an infant as your witness.

Steffy: It’s a beautiful testament to his love for me. But… we are just so crazy right now. We have so much going on. I mean, dad… I gotta quiet my voice because we have a newborn, and we just, like, don’t even have a routine right now. Honestly, like, I–I don’t know why we need a piece of paper to validate us being husband and wife. Things are–are great. We should keep it that way. We’re a couple, and we’re parents, and…

Ridge: Yeah.

Steffy: Like, it’s good right now.

Ridge: Good. Everything’s great.

Steffy: Yeah.

Ridge: That’s it. I’m not missing anything here, am I?

Steffy: [ Sighs ] Breyers is always so delicious…

Zende: So we’re good with this?

Paris: Taking things one day at a time?

Zende: I hope that you don’t feel I’ve led you on or anything like that.

Paris: No, no. You could never do that. It’s not who you are.

Zende: Well, who you are is gorgeous, smart, caring, creative.

Finn: Oh. I’m sorry. Uh, I feel like I’m interrupting something.

Zende: Yeah, you are, but, uh, it’s okay. Hey. We’re cool, right?

Paris: Absolutely.

Zende: Okay.

Finn: Uh, so I just came to pick up this year’s first quarter numbers for steffy. Donna messengered the wrong ones. She’s not at her desk. You don’t know where this file is, do you?

Zende: Uh, yeah, I actually do. I’ll get ’em for you.

Finn: Okay. Thanks, zende.

Zende: And by the way, I don’t know how you managed it, but well done.

Finn: What do you mean?

Zende: You and steffy getting paris to live with you. Now you got a built-in babysitter. Smart move.

Paris: Ha ha ha. I know he was just kidding.

Finn: Yeah, good. Like you would have the time. We’re just glad you’re hanging out with us at our lovable but noisy brood.

Paris: I’m glad to, as long as I’m not in the way.

Finn: Of course not. You can stay as long as you need.

Paris: Thanks. You know, you and steffy are such special people. It’s easy to see why the two of you work so well. You guys are so attentive to each other.

Finn: Well, steffy’s my wife. Uh, steffy’s the mother of my child. I’ll always be there for her.

Steffy: You’re not missing anything.

Ridge: Okay, good. Because I’m with finn on this one. He found the perfect person. He’s found you. You’re amazing. You’re perfect. You’re one of a kind. And he just wants to find a way to lock it down as soon as possible.

Steffy: Dad.

Ridge: Here’s what I don’t get. We’re forresters. We do weddings. That’s what we do. We’re good at it. And it seems to me that he’s trying to dodge a forrester wedding. I don’t like it.

Steffy: No, it’s not like that at all. But thank you for looking out for me.

Ridge: I’m always looking out for you. I’m your dad. And I don’t want you marrying someone if I don’t know who his parents are. You’re always gonna be my little girl. I’m not just gonna let you leave like that. And I know what you’re gonna say. We’ve talked about this. You’re not a little girl anymore. I know that. But you are to me. It doesn’t matter how many people you marry, how many kids you have. You’re always gonna be my little girl. And I’m sorry. I wasn’t a good role model for you.

Steffy: I shouldn’t have said that. I didn’t mean it.

Ridge: It’s okay. I should’ve shown you what a marriage should be like, and I didn’t, ’cause I was torn between two women. And it was hard for you, thomas, phoebe, all you guys. But, you know, you gotta remember, you’re not me. You’re you, and you’re not torn between liam and finn. You’re not torn between finn and anybody. He’s your guy. He’s the guy you’ve been waiting for. It’s the way he looks at you. He gets you. And he’s great with the kids, and…[ Sighs ] That’s it. That’s who you wanna be with. It’s not a question of if you wanna marry him, but when. Right?

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. Exactly.

Ridge: He’s okay with you turning him down with this impromptu wedding you had here. He’s not upset, is he?

Steffy: Ah. I– I didn’t mean to hurt him. I really didn’T. But I feel the exact same way you do. Like, I want to know his parents. I wanna know where he came from. And I really wanna enjoy this moment, but if he does feel rejected, like, I would hate that. I know I’m so crazy right now, dad, but, like, the more I’m speaking about this and really thinking about it, I’m realizing, like, I don’t wanna wait. I-I’m sorry. I don’T. I thought we were rushing into things, but– what am I doing? Like, I really wanna marry him, and I… like, right now. I should. Finn is my person. Why wait? I wanna marry him. I wanna be with him forever. Always. There are times, I wonder…

Paris: I don’t mean to pry, so if I’m sticking my nose somewhere it doesn’t belong, just tell me.

Finn: Hey, we’re living together now. It’s gonna be next to impossible to keep any secrets. Not that I have any. Whatever you need to know, you can just ask.

Paris: Well, this is more of an observation really. I’ve been watching you and steffy– the way you relate. It’s clear how much you love each other. And it’s clear how committed you are to her and hayes.

Finn: Absolutely. They’re the center of my world now. Everything else takes a back seat. Well, not everything. I mean, being a doctor is still pretty damn important to me.

Paris: Well, that’s just because you’re really good at taking care of people.

Finn: You know what I’m also really good at? Changing hayes’ diaper. I mean, those are some serious skills.

Paris: Yeah, I’ve seen you in action, and very impressive. I think steffy might even be a little envious of how good you are.

Finn: I know, right? And she was already a pro after kelly.

Paris: Regardless if it’s changing a diaper or all the other ways you guys support each other, it’s–it’s lucky that you guys have found one another.

Ridge: So, what are you saying? I should put champagne on ice and call this planner?

Steffy: Okay, okay. Let me call my fiancé first. But maybe you should let mom know.

Ridge: I’ll let her know. You know what? I’m gonna call his parents too, because I don’t know them, and you need to know someone’s family. It tells you a lot about who they are.

Steffy: Yeah, I’m sure finn agrees after meeting you.

Ridge: All right. Take it easy.

Steffy: I’m kidding. He’ll be lucky to be marrying into this family. Just like I’ll be lucky to be marrying into his.

Ridge: Yeah. Come here.

Steffy: Oh, dad.

Ridge: I like the kid. I really do. Especially now that he’s given me another grandson.

Steffy: Yeah.

Ridge: What? If you’ve got some doubts, some reservations, then…

Steffy: No. None at all.

Ridge: ‘Cause I’m not saying you need to get married tomorrow. I mean, look, it would make finn happy. It would make me happy.

Steffy: [ Laughs ]

Ridge: It’s not really about us being happy as much as it is about you being happy. So, when are you getting married?

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

How long are you staying? Well, as long as I’m needed. Mm. That could be a long time. Could be. I wouldn’t want to cramp your style or anything, because I can just go if — you take another step towards the door, I might have to do something drastic. Well, I wouldn’t want that. Uh-huh. Hey, why don’t you bring us some more beer? We got a lot of catching up to do. Hey, I hope you don’t mind a splash of rum with your pineapple.

[ Chuckles ] Shades of negril. Have you been? Um, yes, actually — a long time ago. I hear you. Well, cheers to your new office. And a broad-minded parole officer.

[ Laughs ] Cheers. Cheers. Mmm-mmm-mmm. That sure is good. You know I do my best thinking on a lounge. Oh, no justification needed. Ah. We’re not slacking on the job. We’re working. Yeah, that’s right. In fact…there’s our target now. Oh, my god. Ryan? Fancy meeting you here. We have narrowed the candidates down to the two of you. It is imperative that we turn the page on cyrus renault. He nearly ran this hospital right into the ground. Agreed. [ Chuckles ] And who better to do that than the woman who led the covert effort against him? The woman whom he didn’t handpick in the first place? Just tell me what happened to peter.

[ Sighs ] Jason, I’ve got a lot going on. I’m trying to get my family back to some semblance of normalcy. Cameron is starting pcu, jake is taking a summer animation class, and aiden signed up for a baking competition. Okay, look, I don’t want to push you. Then don’T. But I can’t ignore what I just overheard. And it wasn’t just the words. It was the tone of your voice. I’m pretty sure you’re in trouble. Let me help you. You say you might have a lead on peter? It was more of a theory, really. You know, evidence is inconclusive, but it’s the best line we’ve got right now. Everything starts with a hypothesis. You think it might bring you any closer to peter? It’s difficult to say. I hope not.


Hey. How’s it going? Hey, sam. It’s been a while. You know, I’ve been better. But I just heard that you and i are part of the, uh — the same exclusive club. Your ex and my ex? Oh. Together at last. Yeah. Well, I am definitely not looking forward to that bridal shower.

[ Laughs ] I was thinking of making plans that coincide visiting day at spring ridge with my mother whether she is or isn’t available. Yeah, how is alexis? I h-heard that she earned a reprieve by exposing a biased judge. I wouldn’t exactly call it a reprieve. I mean, just because she’s not in a maximum security prison, it’s still prison. She’s just with less dangerous convicts. How the hell did you get assigned to this facility? Are you even in there? There you are. I see you. I just really wasn’t expecting that this place would have such a variety of inmates, you know? I know it’s a minimal security prison, but I was kind of expecting white-collar criminals and some maybe drunken ragers. But — but not a locked-in you. Didn’t see that coming. Just how recovered are you?

[ Gasps ] Oh! I had nothing to do with cyrus bringing me in as chief. But when I discovered what he was up to, I risked my life to stop his corruption — not only for this hospital, but for port charles. When I saw what his drugs were doing to this town, I wanted to take him down. And what I was doing was a hell of a lot more significant than gossiping at the desk with nurse baldwin. I-I don’t dispute your dedication, doctor. We were all very worried when you went into hiding. Thank goodness you had jason morgan to satisfy your needs — for safety. This hospital is trying to salvage its reputation. Cyrus renault was running drugs out of G.H. Under your watch, and one has to wonder whether you looked the other way. The board could hardly be faulted for addressing this perception with a clean break. Uh, excuse me, doctors. The lobbying is all done. We have made our decision. So, do you want to hear what it is? All ears. I’m sorry, dr. Quartermaine. While both of you are eminently qualified doctors, any hospital would be privileged to have you as chief of staff. And what about this one? Especially this one. So, congratulations, dr. Westbourne. And congratulations, dr. Randolph. You are both chief of staff. What’s that smile all about? What? I can’t smile? No, I love it when you smile. Smile all the time and preferably in my direction. But what is prompting that smile? I’m just happy to — happy to see you. I am really happy to see you, too. Hey, stubble never looked so good. I was actually gonna shave. No, because, you know, this rugged look, it really suits you. Yeah? Yeah. Maybe in nixon falls, but, you know, a little rough around the edges is not gonna go well in a big city like port charles. Oh? Yeah. You don’t know how close I came, I got to tell you, driving all the way out there… and bringing you back to me.

[ Door closes ] I’m confused. You — you went to new york to find peter. You were hell-bent on finding peter, and — and now you’re dragging your feet. What happened? Did valentin get in your head? No, he’s not in my head. Okay. Well, he’s not without guilt, right? I mean, he more than anyone shaped peter into the man he became. A-and he does regret his actions when peter was a baby. He’s as motivated as I am to make amends, protect the people we love. So if he’s all in, what has you dragging your feet? You said you would do whatever it took to bring him to justice. Well, I meant that. But when I said those things, I-I couldn’t know where the hunt would lead me or what it might — might cost when I got there. Jason, please, I-I can’t talk about this with you. If you can’t talk to me, how soon before you think you’re gonna be talking to the cops? I’m thinking of the boys. Jake, aiden, cam — elizabeth, they need you, so whatever you’re mixed up in, I can help if you just tell me what’s going on. If I tell you, I’ll make you responsible, too. Okay, I’m the one pursuing this. I accept the risk. Okay, the truth is, I’ve been wanting to tell you pretty much since the beginning because I trust you and I know you would understand. Peter august is dead.


You were on your way to port charles? Yeah, I, uh — well, I got very close, and then I restrained myself ’cause I-I thought that you — you know, I don’t want to interrupt you and your grandson. I mean, I know how important that is to you. Did you guys have a good time? You had fun? Yeah, it was a really great time. You know, he’s doubled in size and he’s tripled his vocabulary. I was — I was teaching him how to swim, and get this. He loves the pool, hates the ocean, and he — he prefers jam over jelly on his toast. Right. And, oh, and the world stops if we see a dump truck or a dog or — or… or anything under construc– am I going on a little bit too much about this? No. What are you talking about? I like seeing you happy like this. So it was a success with wiley. What about the family? They get in the way again? Wiley’s father is being very accommodating. What about the other grandmother? She — she’S… she get in the way, too, or not? You know, I was expecting a little pushback, to be honest with you, but she has — um, she has found some compassion for the situation. That’s a switch. Yeah. I mean, we’re — we’re doing it. We’re getting along. You know, I’ll give her credit where credit is due. Does that extend to your ex? ‘Cause he paved the way, right? Yeah, he did. So he’s in your good graces now? I mean, you guys — you guys working it out? You know, I would actually love to see alexis. You think she’s up for a visit? Yeah, sure. Go and try. I’m sure you’re welcome. ‘Cause I tried to visit her early on in pentonville, but I was turned away. Oh, do not take that personal because when she was at pentonville… okay. …She kept us all at bay. She didn’t want to see me, kristina, or molly. Really? Yeah, but thankfully, she’s found some sort of a purpose. She’s helping other inmates out with their parole and appeals. Although some of her prison clients leave a lot to be desired for. Well… I’m sure glad I made the cut… or I’d still be behind bars. But maybe that’s where you think I should be. Abuse of power by a bigot judge is wrong, but I also believe the person who shot hayden barnes deserves the appropriate punishment. Then we’re in complete agreement. What if I told you that shawn was not that person? Nikolas! Oh, god, I’m glad to see you. And don’t ever sneak up on me like that again. This place is not conducive to surprises, and I just got a big one. We can’t both be chief of staff. How would that work? She’s chief of staff mondays, thursdays, and sundays, and I have the rest of the week? Oh, so four days to my three.

[ Sighs ] No, I’m offering you a position of co-chief of staff. We need someone with institutional, organizational, and leadership skills. We also need someone with a fresh perspective, someone who can rally an already demoralized staff. It’s an unconventional leadership framework. Well, I’m sure the two of you will make a very good team. I can’t imagine a better duo. Maybe I spoke too soon. Finn caught peter on the roof. There was a helicopter circling above. Peter had a vial of the antidote that was keeping chase alive. He wouldn’t give it to finn. Instead, he threw it off the roof and turned around to go back downstairs, and finn just lost it. He pushed peter down the stairs. And when I got to the stairwell, peter was lying on the ground bleeding. No pulse. Finn wanted to confess, but chase would have died if finn hadn’t been around to save him. So…we did the only thing we could. You got rid of the body. We thought about telling a million times. Not because we feel guilty. Peter august was a monster, and god forgive me, I feel no remorse for what happened to him. But maxie — maxie — I feel terrible that she’s terrified that peter’s out there and might come back. But if we go to the police and we confess, a-at the very least, there’s gonna be an investigation. Yeah, I mean, the fact that you guys initially covered up what happened, that might work against you. And finn has violet to think of, and I have my boys. And we still don’t know what happened to maxie’s baby. I mean, obviously, she’s not with peter, but she’s out there somewhere. Where’s peter’s body? Helena’s lab. In the subbasement, there’s a freezer. Peter’s inside. We located peter’s helicopter pilot in new york. We hoped that they would lead us to peter or the baby or both, you know? And? I mean, any news on the baby, at least? Not peter? Well, I figured you didn’t have any news on peter ’cause you said you didn’t want to find him. Right. Um… as regards to the baby, t-the pilot had very little to offer before we arrested him, other than the fact that the original plan was to pick up maxie, the baby, and the kidnapper, but that plan fell through. Mm-hmm. I was told the police have cellphone records suggesting that the fake nurse met with somebody in the woods. Was it the pilot? Did she give the baby to him? No. No, if — if he knew where she was, he would have given her up in a heartbeat to mitigate the trouble he’s in. The irony is that if he had picked peter up, he would be dead by now because we both know peter doesn’t like loose ends. Not landing was the best thing that ever happened to that pilot. I suppose. So he was denied clearance to land, and he was circling. And he saw peter on the roof. But peter wasn’t alone up there.


back to work. And if anybody… saw us together and questions you, all you got to do is say we were talking about the animation class that jake is gonna take this summer. Okay. Jason, what are you gonna do? I’m gonna make this go away. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity, but I have to ask, since dr. Westbourne didn’t take the deal, does that mean it’s off the table for me, as well? Well, she didn’t turn it down. She just hasn’t accepted it yet. Do you think she will? Since she is the daughter of liesl obrecht and obrecht is nothing else if not pragmatic, I think she’ll see the wisdom of the choice. And if she doesn’t? It really is in her best interest to. Look, terry, cards on the table, um, I presented this as a package deal. Either you both accept it or neither one of you gets it and I go looking for another candidate. You won’t have to do that. I will put my superpower people skills to work. Think of this as your first test in your diplomatic ability as co-chief. And if diplomacy doesn’t work, you can always go for flattery. It ain’t pretty, but it gets the job done.

[ Sighs ] Jax went all-out for me, and I am greatly appreciative. Why wouldn’t you be? He made me remember why I fell in love with him, but that was then. And I’m not that woman anymore. When I’m away from port charles, I don’t think about jax. And when you’re there? I think about you. And that’s a bad thing? I should know better. Know better than to get together with a man like me? I should know better than… to think I could make it work here. But I do dream about it. I dream. Mike, I think about you all the time. And when you called me and said for me to come home, it just seemed so right. But how could I possibly stay here? How could i make a life here? How could you not? Can’t be certain about what you know… but I am certain I wouldn’t be very good at lying to you. Nor do I want to, so here we go. No, don’t say another word. Just let me speak. Peter was supposed to be alone on the roof, but he wasn’T. And it spooked the helicopter pilot, and he backed off. But not before registering peter’s companion — tall man, dark hair, wearing a suit. No one fitting that description has come forward. No one’s admitted to being on the roof with peter. So valentin and I, you know, we — we threw around a couple of theories. First theory is that person was a-an accomplice, but if that was the case, peter would have insisted that the pilot land and he would be gone. That didn’t happen. Second theory is we’re not looking for an accomplice but an adversary, someone who went to the roof to confront peter, stop him from escaping. But then why didn’t that person come forward, help law enforcement track him down? Perhaps there was an altercation. Perhaps things got out of hand. Perhaps something happened to — to peter, something unintended that put this witness in an impossible situation. Maybe he can’t come forward because it will put his future at risk… and the future of everyone who relies on him.

[ Door opens ] Finn, I just spoke to — yeah, the cameras covering the roof and roof access. I need them to go down for about an hour, starting now. Can you, uh — can you hack them? Alright. Thanks, spinelli.


I know you have your whole life in port charles, and… if you don’t want to walk away from that, I understand. But that’s — that’s not what I’m asking. You know, wiley — you can visit wiley anytime you want. It’s only like, what, a couple hours’ drive? Yeah. Are you making a case for me to stay here? How am I doing? Oh, you’re doing great. It’s very sweet. Alright. But it’s — it’s not really necessary because… mike, I’M… not really concerned about keeping and maintaining my life in port charles. I’M… I’m really worried that my life in port charles is gonna come here… taint what I have with you. Well, you know, I know the feeling ’cause I’ve been wondering when that… old me is gonna show up, and I got to be honest with you, I don’t want — I don’t want him to. When I grabbed that gun… it was — it was a-a feeling that I had inside. It was very uncomfortable, and it scared me. I will risk losing my old life if it means… having you in my life. So you turned down a plea bargain because you refused to give evidence — state evidence against sonny. You chose prison so sonny could stay out of it? Given how things ended for sonny, I came out ahead of the game. And how many years did sonny get to enjoy his life while you were stuck behind bars? Look, sonny wasn’t the only person to walk around free while I was in pentonville. I didn’t shoot hayden. Someone else wanted her dead. That person was never charged, never even investigated. I’m gonna find them. Sam: And that’s where you come in. Shawn thinks that hayden knows who was behind the shooting. If you help us find hayden, we can finally put the right guy behind bars.

[ Sighs ] Enjoy the view, you son of a bitch. Oh, that’s mature. Just so you know, he didn’t approach me. I approached him. I was relieved that you were transferred out of pentonville. Had I known that this is where you would land, sharing quarters with ryan chamberlain, I would have broken you out and been done with it. You should probably know that talk about jailbreaks is not a good idea in here. Not even in jest. Was I joking? You’ve already done enough for me, and I appreciate it. I may have one string left to pull. I don’t like you in close proximity with ryan. Look at him. He can’t move, can’t speak. He’s probably not gonna be able to murder anybody. Anyway, I don’t want to talk about him. I want to talk about you. Hi. How you doing?

[ Chuckles ] I’m up and down. Spencer’s home.

[ Gasps ] That’s great. Yeah, I’m so glad to have him back. Unfortunately… I might be losing my wife. You’re still here. Something came up. Like a conversation with my boss? You said you were going to see her. You didn’t say something about me, did you? Because that would be really crappy of you to interfere with my work like that. No, I haven’t talked to monica about you. Why would I? I don’t know. I don’t get why you do half the things you do.

[ Elevator bell dings ] I have to go. Of course you do.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ] You owe me $19.97 — for the toothbrush head on my electric toothbrush. I bought a pack when I thought you might stay over. Just give me $5 since it was a pack of four and one was for you. I didn’t need a replacement head yet. I was trying to think of your comfort. I got — I got $20. Just venmo me. Dr. Finn, I need you for a consult. Dr. Goodman’s on duty. I’m dealing with something right now. Is everything okay? Yeah, everything’s okay. Hey. Don’t worry. So, now what? I don’t know what happened on that roof, but if peter was trying to escape and he was somehow prevented from doing so, I think the person who prevented him would be given a great deal of consideration. That is, if an accident occurred during that encounter. It’s too bad you’re not in charge of doling out considerations. There’s no telling what, uh, the police or a judge might do. I know. What I also know is that if I followed peter’s trail here, the police won’t be far behind because they have the pilot in custody and he’s going to have given them the same description of the man on the roof that he gave me. Whoever encountered peter that day has one chance to get out in front of this… and one chance to have me stand by his side.


If I can remember correctly, when hayden first came into town, the two of you were seemingly close. Oh, no, no, no. No, she was just trying to make finn jealous. We were never more than business associates.

[ Sighs ] You didn’t reach out to hayden when she took off? She didn’t reach out to you? No, I did. I tried, but all communication was cut off. Look, hayden wasn’t my favorite person, but she was trying to create a better life for her and her child. They seemed really close. She just met finn, and — and suddenly, he was her only parent. I mean, I-I tried everything to — to find hayden and bring her back. But no luck. None. It doesn’t make any sense. Why wouldn’t hayden at least try to contact her daughter or reach out or communicate somehow? Well, maybe by staying away, it somehow protects violet. I’m sorry about ava. I didn’t know things had gotten so bad. Is there any hope? Ava’s adamant about going through with the divorce. Well, what about a compromise? Legal separation? Ava won’t consider it. How can I blame her? I mean, the stalker — he’s broken into wyndemere, our hotel room, ava’s gallery. He’s even targeted little avery. That was the deal-breaker. Do the police have any leads? They’re working on something, but they refuse to keep me in the loop. All they know for sure is that the stalker is exploiting ryan’s obsession with ava. Ryan? It can’t be him. Yeah, so it would appear. What if it’s a-a fan or a wannabe or a familiar, someone who is just trying to impress ryan by, uh, following in his footsteps, doing his dirty work? I have to find this bastard before it becomes too late for me and ava. You know, you’re not gonna get anywhere until you can rule out a connection to ryan. I mean, it’s too bad that you don’t have anybody that’s close enough to this to suss it out. Oh, wait. Jason, I went to see finn to tell him that we talked, and anna was there. I have a really bad feeling she knows. Crazy question, but is it possible britt westbourne doesn’t entirely deserve her reputation? That is crazy. It goes against conventional wisdom, maybe, but I don’t know. Maybe beneath her snarky exterior lurks a woman who’s desperate for companionship and compassion, hoping someone will hear her cry. She once made flambé out of a little girl’s doll. No coming back from that, huh? I have better things to think about than britt westbourne. Why are you suddenly trying to unearth compassion for her, anyway? I’m just looking for a way to charm and disarm her, but you’re right. There are better things to talk about, like what’s going on with you, biz? I know my word counts for very little these days, and I wouldn’t blame anyone for being reluctant to put their fate in my hands. I’ve broken a lot of people’s trust, and I can’t apologize enough. Hey, you don’t have to do this. No, I do. I do. ‘Cause I can’t let peter… or whatever’s happened to him… I can’t let it ruin another person’s life. It was you. You were on the roof with him. Tell me what happened. Better…if I show you. There’s that smile again.

[ Laughs ] I’m just happy to see you. You know, last time you left, I had to do everything I could to — to memorize your face. Yeah. Yeah. It’s too bad, like, phones don’t have cameras and stuff like that. Oh, that’s a nice little, uh, way to kill the mood. I’m sorry. I couldn’t help it. Forgive me. Forgive me. But you don’t have to memorize my face. I’m gonna be around. I’m happy for that. Why don’t I just take a selfie for — just for — you know what I mean? Alright, let’s do it. Let’s see. You know how to use it? I’m — I’m — yeah, I do know how to use it. Okay, ’cause I’m here to help you.

[ Laughs ] Okay. Wait. Okay, ready? Cheese.

[ Camera shutter clicks ] Perfect. Oh, you look great. Thank you. You know what? What? I should have had some coffee instead of these beers because I’m just getting so tired. You know, it’s that drive back here. Maybe I should go and settle in before we have to take lenny to his treatment tomorrow. Oh, I know. That’s not gonna be fun, right? Mnh-mnh. Yeah, you should go. You’re probably tired and the whole thing.

[ Groans ] So, uh, this is better than coffee. Huh? Remember last time you left, we made a deal? And I said, “why don’t — w-why — I’ll give you my — my sauce, my special sauce, in exchange for a dance,” when you came back, right? I remember that. Alright. Well, I’m ready to collect. Mm-hmm? Yeah. How can I resist?

In your eyes

is where I wanna…


Oh. Ooh. Smooth. You didn’t miss a step. I’ve been practicing. Oh, you’ve been practicing. Yeah. I think you’re kind of a natural. One of your many, many talents. I should go.

[ Sighs ] Now I should go.

[ Chuckles ] You better go. Yeah. I’ll, um… I’ll see you tomorrow. Alright. Forget something? Hey, mike.

[ Laughs ] I let it simmer until it was hot. Mm. Best sauce I’ve ever had.

[ Door closes ] Well, if you pick up hayden’s trail again, my resources are at your disposal. Thank you, jax. Appreciate that. Yeah, absolutely. We knew it was a long shot that you had a way to contact hayden, but we had to take it. Have you tried elizabeth, hayden’s sister? I mean, if there’s anyone that hayden would feel safe communicating with, it would be her. Okay. And just one more thing — hayden and I were working together with nikolas. He brought us all together on some scheme to regain his family fortune. Oh. So you might want to start with him. Nikolas: Forget it. I don’t want you putting yourself in ryan’s sights. I’m just gonna keep an eye on him. What’s the big deal? He’s a psychopath. Look at him. He’s just staring at the corner. He’s gonna continue to sit there and stare at the corner until somebody comes in and turns him around and wheels him out of here. Alexis, you were fortunate to be transferred from pentonville. Quit while you’re ahead. Don’t go looking for more trouble. I’m not looking for more trouble, so don’t worry, okay? I think I can handle a deactivated serial killer. Sorry. I’m just distracted. Distracted or upset? Because there’s a difference. Nurse baldwin! Dr. Randolph. Excuse me. I have to pick up some labs. You and your bestie catching up on the hot goss? Actually, I was about to ask elizabeth a question about dental hygiene. How often do you change your toothbrush, dr. Westbourne? Manufacturers do recommend between three and four months, but I can only go one. Call me extravagant, but nothing short of a good, stiff bristle will do.

[ Laughs ] Were you eavesdropping on me? When I was choosing where to go to med school, I almost turned down my first choice because my ex was going there, too. The thought of taking gross anatomy with that cretin was almost more than I could bear. But then I got a grip. Hell if I was gonna turn down one of the best schools in the country and let my ex think I was floundering because of him. If I turn down a demotion, it won’t be because of jason. One — it’s not a demotion, and two — are you sure?

[ Knock on door ] What is it, robert? The security cameras, the ones mr. Renault had turned off to cover his illegal comings and goings? Yes. You — you re-installed them. So what is it? We installed software to alert us to future tampering. The alarms are sounding. Someone’s trying to get in. It’s elizabeth. I need your help. Whoa. Haven’t been down here since olivia jerome took griffin. Yeah, it’s been here a long time. The hospital tried to keep it sealed off without much success. Yeah. Is this where peter went?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Ashland: I have a minor anxiety attack and you start to question if the merger was a mistake. I didn’t know you were an alarmist.

Victoria: I’m not an alarmist. I just want to make sure that we’re doing everything in your best interest.

Ashland: This merger is the most exciting thing that I have done in my career. I do not have one single regret.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Look, panic attacks don’t happen for no reason. Didn’t you just admit that these attacks are — are because you’re — you’re giving up things that are very important to you?

Ashland: I wasn’t talking about my business. And look at how everything’s changed — my marriage, the child that I thought was my flesh and blood, this diagnosis that is gonna steal my life away and the legacy that I was hoping to create by passing my business along to my son and teaching him how to run it. This is the burden that I wake up to every morning, and you are the one thing that keeps it all from getting so much worse.

Victoria: I’m glad that I’m helping. I just wish that it was enough to keep these attacks from happening. But I believe that there’s a way that you can stop them.

Billy: I’m really sorry to hear that. Yeah, I’m available tomorrow. You just let me know. You as well. Thank you.

[ Sighs ]

Phyllis: Problem?

Billy: My meeting just canceled on me.

Phyllis: Mm. Don’t you hate it when that happens?

Billy: No one cancels on you.

Phyllis: No, no one ever. If you want to avoid last-minute appointment cancelations, why don’t you bring lily? No one would cancel on her.

Billy: Oh, you’re right. No one cancels on lily. Unfortunately, she can’t be here. She took a last-minute trip to go see mattie. So my meeting’s canceled. I’m here all alone. Maybe we should connect and figure out what’s going on with tara.

Phyllis: So your theory that sally and tara are working together? From what I’ve seen, you are 1,000% correct.

Kyle: What do you think about taking harrison to a pool party for kids at the grand phoenix this weekend?

Tara: That does sound like fun. But maybe we could find some alternatives.

Kyle: Well, if you’re worried about lifeguards or supervision —

Tara: It’s phyllis. I don’t think she likes me very much.

Kyle: Oh, I don’t think you need to worry about that. She feels the same way about half the people in this town.

Tara: I wasn’t a big fan of the way she just made herself welcome at our table yesterday.

Kyle: Yeah, you’ll have to learn how to take her with a grain of salt.

Tara: I hate saying anything ’cause I know she was almost your mother-in-law, but…

Kyle: What?

Tara: I think she feels like I’m somehow responsible for summer taking that job in italy.

Kyle: Well, you are responsible.

Sharon: Ooh. Darn it.

Moses: You can keep the heat. I mean, I’ll take a cold, crisp winter day anytime.

Faith: No offense, but that’s a little bonkers. Who likes ice and snow?

Sharon: Hey, you twO. You want something to drink?

Moses: Oh, yeah, I’ll take a lemonade. Thanks.

Faith: I still can’t believe that tigirlily was right here in this coffee house.

Moses: Yeah, it was pretty dope, right?

Faith: I can’t wait to see them perform at the new hope charity concert. What do you think, mom?

Sharon: Yeah, that sounds great. Maybe adam will be back from minnesota by then.

Faith: You mean rey?

Sharon: Yeah. That’s what I said.

Faith: No, you said adam.

Sharon: Oh, well, obviously, I meant rey. I’m just really anxious for him to come home. You know, I have too much on my mind today. Tiffany called and said she’s gonna be a little bit late for her shift. You know, would you mind taking over here for a little while? I think you’re up for it now, aren’t you?

Faith: What if someone comes in with a super-complicated order? Espresso macchiato with steamed soy milk and lemon zest or something.

Sharon: You’ll be fine. And, you know, you won’t be here that long by yourself.

Faith: Wait, where are you going?

Sharon: Errands.

Chelsea: Anita’s doing well.

Adam: That’s good.

Chelsea: Yeah, she’s gonna need a lot more physical therapy, though. For such a minor surgery, she’s facing a lengthy recovery.

Adam: Hmm. Well, I’m sure that’s frustrating for her.

Chelsea: Yeah. But being able to see connor so much, it puts her in a good mood.

Adam: I know how she feels. How’s he doing?

Chelsea: He’s really good. You know, anita takes any opportunity she can to tell people all about her brilliant grandson. She’s so proud of him, and connor, of course, loves the attention.

Adam: I’m glad.

Chelsea: I don’t think i would’ve been able to do this without him, so thank you for letting me bring him along with me and putting your foot down with victor. I know you didn’t have to do that, and it means a lot to me. I’ll forever be grateful.

Adam: That is all great to hear. That is the reason that I wanted connor to go on this trip with you in the first place. But, chelsea, it’s time to start talking about when to bring him home. We’re eating and drinking foods and beverages

Chelsea: You want connor home already? We just got here.

Adam: He has lacrosse camp starting in a few days, and it wouldn’t be fair to upend his entire summer schedule for this.

Chelsea: We have plans, adam, things we want to do when grandma has her appointments. There’s this — this “evolution of the video game” exhibit at the museum and new baby snow monkeys at the zoo.

Adam: I assumed you would be doing all sorts of fun stuff, and I don’t want to rob you of your time with him, so when anita is better and you are able to come back, we can make up for it by giving you as much time with connor as you want, here in genoa city. All we’re doing is we’re just pushing the activities a little further down the road. That is all.

Chelsea: But [Sighs] How will he get home?

Adam: Connor can go with rey. As I understand, he’s supposed to come back in a day or two. That’ll be simple. He can drive our son home.

Chelsea: Adam, let him stay a little while longer, please.

Adam: I know your time with connor means a lot to you, and I’m aware that it means a lot to him, too. That’s why I thought it was important for you to go on this trip together, so that he could be reassured that you’re healthy. But he has seen that now.

Chelsea: Yeah, he knows I’m okay.

Adam: You can video chat. And it won’t be long until you can see him again. That is what’s important.

Chelsea: You’re right.

Kyle: That didn’t come out the way I wanted it to.

Tara: I should hope not.

Kyle: Yeah, well, what i meant was I certainly don’t blame you for summer leaving. Harrison is my kid and this is my life now, and I wouldn’t change that for anything. But it still put a burden on summer, and that’s nobody’s fault. Just is how it is. That’s why summer chose to leave. Apparently it was too much for her to handle.

Tara: “Apparently”?

Kyle: There’s part of me that wants to think there was more to it. I mean, she kept saying she was fine with the way things were, that she understood, so when she did that 180, it threw me. But…I guess it wasn’t as huge of a change in her attitude as i told myself. Signs were all there. I just didn’t want to see them. In a way, leaving me was… it was honest. Incredibly so. She broke my heart in ways that I couldn’t have dreamed of. But she felt the way she did and she did what she had to do.

Tara: Sorry.

Kyle: No. It’s not your fault.

Tara: I didn’t mean for you to open up about this. It’s your business. It’s not your job to make me feel better about all of this.

Kyle: Actually, it is my job to make this okay for all of us, including harrison. Look, I accept that responsibility, which is why i was wondering…

Tara: Yes, kyle?

Kyle: How would you feel if i asked sharon rosales to come by? I can call her and see if she has any free time.

Tara: Oh, I’ve — I met her at the coffee house. But why would you suggest that?

Kyle: Well, in addition to running crimson lights, she’s a therapist who has worked with kids and she might have good ideas on how to talk to harrison about locke’s illness.

Tara: I see.

Kyle: Okay, I know you have strong feelings about keeping ashland away from harrison after what happened at the park, but i want to make sure we go and do things the right way.

Tara: You amaze me. You never stop thinking about how we can make things better for our son.

Kyle: Any father would do the same.

Tara: Oh, you’re not just any father. You really are the best.

Victoria: All you have to do is just take one simple step.

Ashland: I know where this conversation is going because we have been here before. You want me to get treatment for the cancer.

Victoria: Yes, I do, because controlling your health will help alleviate the stress that you’re feeling. Yes, you can do yoga, you can do all the breathing, and that will help, but I’m talking about the real cause of it. You’re struggling right now because you feel like you’re out of control.

Ashland: I don’t want to keep having this circular conversation over and over again. If you were any other person on this earth, you wouldn’t dare keep revisiting this same thing day after day. I’ve told you again and again, I do not want treatment.

Victoria: And I can’t let it go.E I’M…[Sighs] This thing that’s happening between us is just getting so much stronger, deeper. I know I’m being so selfish, but I just want this to last as long as possible.

Ashland: As do I. But I do not want to experience some god-awful side effects just so I can add an extra half-hour to my life.

Victoria: And I don’t want that for you. But I keep thinking about your reasoning. You admit that you’re having these powerful anxiety attacks that can knock you to the ground. Do you know that’s a hell of a thing to hear from the toughest man that I’ve met in my life? You are a control freak.

Ashland: I beg your pardon?

Victoria: In the best possible way.

Ashland: Ah.

Victoria: You’re upfront about your power position and you don’t let anyone doubt you. It’s who you are. It’s how you’ve defined yourself. It’s how you’ve always defined yourself. Until now. You are letting this disease be the thing that defines you, and that — I’m sorry — I just — i can’t understand. Try our new scented oils for freshness that lasts.

Chloe: Chloe mitchell reporting for duty.

Adam: Welcome to your first day at newman media.

Chloe: Thanks. I think. Am I brave or just crazy? Because never, not even in my most wild nightmares, did I ever expect this happening.

Adam: Well, I am glad that you decided to come on board. Are you looking for something?

Chloe: Um…you know, just checking for booby traps.

Adam: [ Laughs ]

Chloe: Just in case your offer wasn’t the altruistic gesture you claimed it to be. Do you mind if I indulge myself?

Adam: Oh, no, please, be my guest, chloe. Satisfied?

Chloe: Yeah. For now. So, um, chelsea left me a message yesterday. She told me that she had a great visit with connor, and that never would’ve happened if you hadn’t agreed to it, so good move.

Adam: Connor’s actually going to be coming home in a couple days.

Chloe: Wait, already? I mean, just when chelsea is getting her relationship back with her son and finally in a good place, you’re already pulling the plug?

Adam: I’m just trying to make sure everyone gets what they need. Not that I owe you an explanation. So why don’t we just focus on work?

Chloe: That’s probably for the best.

Adam: When you check out your new office, you’ll see that I’ve set you up with everything you need to dive right in. I’m giving you free reign to develop the fashion platform, including hiring your own team, because I trust your fashion instincts and because I have none of my own.

Chloe: So when chelsea does come back and when she’s ready to live her free life, you are still willing to let her be onboard.

Adam: I have no reason to go back on my word. I think it would be good for chelsea.

Chloe: You do? So you’re not setting chelsea up the same way you did with connor — make a promise, then break it?

Adam: That’s not going to happen.

Chloe: Okay. Got to wonder. No one plays mind games like you do, and maybe this [Chuckles] Was just all an act going way back to when you first offered me the job. Give me what I want, make me happy, keep me quiet. And this new leaf of yours is just one big act.

Faith: Making the perfect cup of coffee is a science. I figure once I excel at the simple stuff, the classics, then I can branch out, spice things up. I was thinking about trying a cold brew latte next.

Moses: No.

Faith: What’s wrong?

Moses: Please don’t hate me, but I can’t drink another ounce of your experiments. My hands are jittery, my life is flashing before my eyes. Just please no more caffeine.

Faith: I will never excel as a master barista with that lack of support. Speaking of careers, what’s going on with your future plans?

Moses: Well, actually, I was talking with devon, and a career in music might be worth checking out.

Faith: What’s nate got to say about that?

Moses: Not much. I mean, we haven’t really had time to talk about it. But what I can say is I’m really excited for going backstage at the new hope concert, see how everything comes together. Medicine is great, intellectually, but music —

Faith: Dr. Hastings! What can I get for you?

Nate: Uh, let me get just an espresso. Hey, bud. Listen, I know we haven’t had a chance to talk about things yet. But before we do, I want you to think long and hard about what you really want. Ask yourself if you really want to go into medicine. And consider what you’d be giving up if you don’T.

Faith: Either way, I think we can all agree on one thing. Moses should do the thing that makes him the happiest, right?

Nate: Of course.

Phyllis: So you were definitely right about tara and sally. I saw them commiserating right here. They…

[ Sighs ] They drove my daughter out of town.

Billy: You’re sure about that.

Phyllis: Well, pretty sure about that. I mean, they both benefited. Sally has her job at jcv. The other one has her ex-fiancé.

Billy: Not exactly sure tara’s capable of pulling all that off.

Phyllis: Oh, well, she’s relying on harrison to do it for her. Harrison is an abbott that jack and kyle didn’t even know about until now.

Billy: Because tara kept the truth from kyle.

Phyllis: Exactly. Of course, they can’t see that. All they see is a little boy who needs their love. I mean, hell, it was hard for me to accept that those two manipulated my daughter so, but they did. Tara and sally, they’re in this together, for sure. I mean, tara’s getting close to the abbotts because she doesn’t want to give up her gilded lifestyle.

Billy: Which makes it open season on poor, vulnerable kyle. And if you’re tara, hooking up with your son’s biological father sure does tick a lot of boxes, doesn’t it?

Phyllis: You know, there’s one other thing I don’t understand. Summer recommended sally for her job at jcv.

Billy: You kidding me? Why?

Phyllis: I don’t know. I mean, honestly, it was soul-crushing for me to hear that. But she did. I mean, she hates sally.

Billy: And you think summer’s hand was forced somehow?

Phyllis: I don’t know. We just need to find out why she was manipulated. And we need to expose it, and then my daughter will come home.

Billy: Well, if that is your plan, phyllis, there is one question to be asked. Are you sure that summer wants to come home? With voltaren arthritis pain gel

Chloe: This “new adam” thing is just a hoax. And I’m gonna make sure the whole world knows it.

Adam: Fine. You saw right through me, chloe. Your job was a trap. It’s a joke. Get out of my office. Right now.

Chloe: You know, I knew it. I knew it was too good to be true, and you just proved it. You have not changed one damn bit. Well, you know what? I’m not intimidated. I’m not going anywhere because we had a contract. In fact, I had michael look it over to make sure it was legit.

Adam: Oh, that’s a great idea. I assume he said it was.

Chloe: Yes, he did.

Adam: Good to know. There’s the door. Oh, and take that with you.

Chloe: What’s this? A restraining order? Because that’s what it’s gonna take to keep me away from here.

Adam: That’ll be the key to your new office. You’re going to need it.

Chloe: [ Sighs ] Wait, you — what? Wh–

Adam: Look, I know that you were pushing my buttons, trying to get a reaction out of me. Was that the one that you wanted, chloe?

Chloe: [ Sighs ] You know, your pretend anger is very convincing.

Adam: Well, we needed to get that out of the way if we’re gonna work together.

Chloe: And we are.

Adam: And, yes, we do have a valid contract and I’m gonna hold you to it. And, yes, I want you to bring chelsea in on the project when the time is right.

Chloe: [ Sighs ] You are a real piece of work.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] Look, I know that you’ll never trust me fully, but I do accept the challenge that you will come around eventually, because if you can one day see me in a new light, anyone can.

Chloe: Well, I better get going. I have work to get done. But in the meantime, don’t hold your breath.

Phyllis: Are you saying that my daughter wouldn’t want to come back into town? I mean, she loves genoa city. She loves her family. I inspire her.

Billy: Look, this is just a reminder that whatever dirty tricks sally and tara have played, summer did get her dream job. She is a smart, talented person in the fashion capital of the world. What other ambitious person wouldn’t want to be in her shoes?

Phyllis: I mean, well, that’s true. But, I mean, she would sacrifice the love of her life?

Billy: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: What? Please tell me.

Billy: Look, I am fond of both kyle and summer, no matter what you think about me. But the love of her life? That’s a little wishful thinking with all the ups and downs that they’ve had.

Phyllis: So you think they would have broken up anyway?

Billy: Before summer left, i encouraged kyle to take one more shot to get her to stay, and she didn’T. She left and she has left before. So all I’m saying is maybe sally and tara hastened the demise of their relationship.

Phyllis: I know why people cancel their meetings with you, ’cause you’re a bum-out. I’m not gonna accept your pessimistic attitude about my daughter’s love life or about whether she wants to come home or not.

Billy: Well, that’s because you’re her mother.

Phyllis: No, it’s because she was manipulated into leaving town is why. My daughter will want to come back to reclaim what is rightfully hers. She is her mother’s daughter.

[ Sighs ] Sally and tara did this. They pushed my daughter out of town. And we must expose this. I cannot — i will not let this stand.

Kyle: Please, sharon, have a seat. So I assume you’ve seen the video of ashland and harrison at the park.

Sharon: I have.

Kyle: It was an isolated incident, a rare occurrence of everything going wrong that could’ve gone wrong. But it was awful for harrison seeing the man he calls father like that, and so tara and i think it’s important that we have a solid plan.

Sharon: Okay, um, well, I’m not sure what you mean exactly. What kind of plan?

Kyle: Like what amount of access for ashland is right given the situation and how do we talk to harrison about locke’s illness.

Tara: We just want to do the best thing for our son, to protect him.

Sharon: Well, I worry about the impulse to eliminate ashland from the conversation about his own disease, and it could send a message to harrison that illness and death are unnatural or something to be hidden. And you wouldn’t want harrison to grow up feeling afraid of people who have impairments or deal with certain challenges. And if you do limit their contact, harrison will feel abandoned by his dad, and then he’ll probably blame himself and wonder what he did wrong. I think what harrison needs to know right now, above everything else, is that his father loves him, despite everything.

Kyle: What do you think is the best course of action?

Sharon: I think that tara and ashland need to talk to harrison together, and I would be loving and gentle, but, above all, be truthful.

Kyle: That makes so much sense. It’s exactly what we needed to hear. Advil dual action fights pain 2 ways.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Kyle: What’d you think?

Tara: Sharon’s very knowledgeable. And it was so generous of her to share her thoughts and opinions with us, but for me, it isn’t just about that monday in the park. Ashland isn’t just a man who gets what he wants, he smashes anyone who tries to get in his way. And if I try to talk to him about this, that is the side that’s gonna emerge. And he’s already furious with me about trying to get sole custody of harrison.

Kyle: I think on some level, ashland knows he overreacted in the park, and he may even understand why you reacted the way you did. Look, I’m not saying the conversation will be easy, but if I’m right about ashland, it may not be that hard. And maybe it will lead to a compromise that helps harrison. That is what this is all about, right?

Tara: I just hate living my life under a microscope.

Kyle: No, no one is judging you, tara.

Tara: Oh, no? Ash resents me for trying to protect our little boy. Phyllis has crazy ideas about my motives and is trying to get me to admit to something. And now I’m worried that you and jack are going to judge me, too. All I have ever wanted is to do what’s best for our son.

Kyle: My father and I will always be in your corner, no matter what. And when it comes to phyllis, you let me handle her. But this stalemate with locke has to end, for harrison’s sake, and I know deep down you agree.

Victoria: Do you like the tea?

Ashland: Well, it smells like fresh-cut lawn, but let me guess, it’s good for me.

Victoria: I just — I thought that maybe you needed something restorative after your episode.

[ Sighs ] Is it helping?

Ashland: Uh, it wasn’t necessary, but I truly appreciate it. Just being around you, I feel exponentially better.

Victoria: Have you given any more thought to what I said?

Ashland: Of course I have.

Victoria: But you’re not changing your mind, are you? Because it’s too hard for the great and powerful ashland locke to admit that I’m right and he is wrong. I know what I said before was a little bit manipulative, but I’m running out of ways to make you see that you’ve made your decision in haste. I think a lot has changed since you declared that you’re not interested in seeking treatment. We’ve merged our companies.

Ashland: We have. And we became us.

Victoria: You are such a force. You still have so much to give, and I want to get as much as i can.

Ashland: I’d forgotten how greedy you are.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Yes, there is something in it for me, but there is so much in it for you, too, and I promise you, any extra time you get will be a gift. I will personally see to it.

Ashland: [ Chuckles ]

[ Cellphone rings ]

[ Sighs ] It’s tara. I should probably get this. I’m so sorry.

Victoria: No, it’s fine. Of course.

Tara: Hello, ashland.

Ashland: What’s this about?

Tara: Harrison. I’d like to meet. We have a lot to discuss.

Sharon: Rey, hi. I just — I just needed to hear your voice. I do hope you’ll be coming home soon. Call me when you’re free. Love you.

Adam: Sharon.

Sharon: [ Gasps ] Oh, gosh!

[ Sighs ] Are you following me now? To be a thriver

Kyle: When ashland arrives, I’ll get the door, I’ll show him in, and then I’ll join you on the couch to show him that we are united. What do you think?

Tara: I think you have put a lot of thought into this.

Kyle: I only want to help.

Tara: But I should probably do this part on my own.

Kyle: You sure about that?

Tara: You’re very sweet, but I can handle him.

Kyle: Okay. I’ll give you your space. It’s probably good that harrison’s still at his play date. But I wonder…

Tara: What I’ll say about custody? Guess that depends on what ash is like when he gets here.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Geez, I say “hello,” and I’m suddenly stalking you?

Sharon: No, I-I didn’t mean that. I really apologize. I’ve just been really jumpy the last few days, and then you just came out of nowhere.

Adam: Well, it is a public park in broad daylight. You never know what’s lurking around the corner. It could be crying babies or suspicious looking butterflies. So what has you all spooked?

Sharon: Um, our conversation the other night. You know, you completely turned that around and made it about us.

Adam: I wasn’t aware that i did that. We were talking about people’s perception of me. I mean, billy had just accused me of putting on a performance to try to get you back. I mean, the conversation just flowed from that.

Sharon: Well, but then before I knew it, we were talking about which one I liked better — good adam or bad adam. And I don’t know what that had to do with anything. And just so you know, I don’t feel pull towards either side of you. Right now what I feel pulled toward is rey, who is going to be coming home soon after being out of town looking after your ex of all people. So don’t try to rope me in to talking about our history. It’s in the past.

Nate: Hey.

Victoria: Hey.

[ Sighs ] I’m so glad you could make it.

Nate: I’ve got to admit, i was surprised to get your call, but always happy to make time for you. Everything okay?

Victoria: With me, yes. I’m great. I just wanted to pick your brain on behalf of a friend.

Nate: Okay, I’ll help if i can.

Victoria: Look, I know it’s not your specialty, but I have always respected your abilities so much. My friend has been diagnosed with small cell lung carcinoma.

Nate: I’m sorry to hear that.

Victoria: Until now, he’s been resistant to treatment, but I was hoping that maybe I could learn a few things to give him a reason to consider some of the options.

Nate: I read the news and i watch tv. I have a pretty good sense of who you’re talking about.

Victoria: No names.

Nate: Understood. I should tell you I recently had a similar conversation with billy. He had questions about a hypothetical friend’s health. Shortly after, those articles from chanccomm went online.

Victoria: Did he mention any names?

Nate: No, he kept it anonymous. Didn’t reveal many details, but it’s clear to me you’re talking about the same person.

Victoria: I’m not surprised that billy asked you about this, but honestly, I don’t want to get into why he’s curious. I’m only interested in what you have to tell me.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

[ Knock on door ]

Chloe: Hey.

Adam: Chloe. Come iN.

Chloe: I e-mailed you some designs, some other ideas I want you to take a look at.

Adam: You don’t waste any time, do you?

Chloe: Get back to me when you can.

Adam: Yeah, you can count on it.

Chloe: Thanks.

Faith: I’ve been working on my latte art. It’s a heart. What do you think? Hi, mom.

Moses: It kind of looks like a pineapple. But it’s cool.

Faith: What do you think, mom?

Sharon: Good work.

Faith: Is everything okay?

Sharon: Yeah, sure.

Faith: You seemed a little off before you left.

Sharon: Oh, I was just thinking about rey and worried. He can’t get home soon enough as far as I’m concerned.

Victoria: My eyes are wide open. I’m aware of conventional treatments — radiation, chemotherapy. I know that this is realistically not a conversation about a cure, it’s about buying time. And making the most of that time.

Nate: I’m glad you have a clear-eyed view on this. With this type of cancer, you’re talking small percentages, low probability of success, small amounts of time.

Victoria: I understand that, but there must be scientists out there somewhere trying to combat this. New drugs, different approaches. I want to hear about clinical trials and promising experimental treatments on the horizon. Anything like that. Nothing’s off the table.

Nate: Yeah, these are great questions. And as you’ve said, oncology is not my specialty, but I’ll be more than happy to confer with colleagues and see what’s out there.

Victoria: Thank you. That’s wonderful of you. Thank you.

Nate: Just doing my job.

Victoria: You’re being modest. I know that you have a lot on your plate right now, but I have to give my friend something, anything, present him with an option that maybe he hasn’t heard of before. That might help him make a decision.

Tara: Thanks for getting here so quickly.

Ashland: Where is your entourage of abbotts?

Tara: I just wanted it to be the two of us. We need to talk about how we’re gonna explain things to harrison.

Ashland: Things. You mean my diagnosis.

Tara: This is something I’m willing to do as a team.

Ashland: A team? Well, that is something that we are no longer, and you made that crystal clear when you went for sole custody.

Tara: Don’t make this any more difficult than it already is.

Ashland: Oh, I should make it easy for you? Why? Are you having a bad day?

Tara: I’m making an effort.

Ashland: The only effort that I care about is the one you made trying to keep harrison from ever seeing me again.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]

Kyle: Hey, phyllis.

Phyllis: Yeah? Can I help you?

[ Crickets chirping ]

Ridge: So that means the two of you are gonna be heading home together?

Steffy: Mm-hmm. Just one of the many great things about having paris live with us.

Paris: I cannot thank you enough for welcoming me into your home. It has been driving me crazy trying to find a place after zoe left town.

Steffy: You’ll find one, but until then, be our guest.

Paris: I’m excited.

Steffy: Me too. I know the kids are, especially hayes.

Ridge: Why especially my grandson?

Steffy: He and paris are, like, full-on besties. He was having a meltdown, and then paris sang this lullaby and totally calmed him down when finn and I couldn’T.

Ridge: That sounds like a good setup.

Steffy: Yeah. It is.

[ Chuckles ]

Ridge: Well, at least something good came out of this whole situation. I mean, paris wouldn’t even be looking for a place if quinn and carter hadn’t done what they did.

Carter: We don’t have to define it, put a label on it.

Quinn: It just…happens when we’re together.

Carter: Yeah.

Quinn: [ Sighs ] We’ve tried to say goodbye so many times.

Carter: But I can’T.

Quinn: I can’t either.

Paris: Oh. Hey.

Zende: I’m just trying on some new designs.

Paris: Well, you wear it well.

Zende: Thank you. Makes me feel good.

Paris: Well, I’m feeling pretty good myself. I got some good news.

Zende: You found a place?

Paris: This pretty awesome situation just fell into my lap.

Zende: Hey, congratulations. Tell me about it.

Paris: Well, I didn’t plan on having roommates, but turns out I’m gonna have four.

Zende: Four?

Paris: Mm-hmm. And I’ve been warned that two of them get pretty loud.

Zende: Um, hopefully, you can just ask them to keep it down, right?

Paris: I can try. I’m sure kelly will try, but hayes, I don’t think he’ll understand what I’m saying.

Zende: Wait. Hayes? You’re living with steffy and finn?

Ridge: Well, it was kind of you to give paris a place to stay for the time being.

Steffy: Finn and I are glad that she accepted our invitation. She’s been really lonely now that zoe’s in paris. Like, I understand why she wanted to stay there. I don’t know what I would do if I found out the man I loved was having an affair with the boss’ wife.

Ridge: Quinn and carter did hurt a lot of people.

Steffy: Hmm.

Carter: I’m not ready for it to end.

Quinn: [ Inhales ] Carter.

Carter: And neither are you. I can’t imagine living without this. Never holding you. Never looking into your eyes. Smelling your skin. Tasting your lips.

Quinn: Mmm. I feel it too. It took all of the strength I had to walk out of here.

[ Sighs ] It’s complicated. My plaque psoriasis…

[ Crickets chirping ]

Paris: Steffy and finn are so generous, giving me this beautiful place to stay right on the beach.

Zende: Living the socal dream, huh?

Paris: It’s more than I ever could have asked for. I couldn’t believe it when they offered.

Zende: You said yes right away, I guess, huh?

Paris: Once I realized they were being serious, you bet I did.

Zende: You’re not gonna have a lot of privacy.

Paris: Oh, after living by myself at zoe’s place, I can’t wait to be around people again. I hated coming home to an empty house and eating dinner by myself in front of a computer screen. I like activity.

Zende: Ooh. You will get plenty of that. I’m not saying things are crazy over there. I’m sure that finn and steffy have things under control.

Paris: Oh, yeah. They do. But I thought I could pitch in, you know. I offered to help with kelly and hayes, but they insisted that I’m their guest.

Zende: It won’t be, I don’t know, a little bit awkward living with the boss?

Paris: I don’t think so. Steffy and I really clicked.

Zende: Hmm.

Paris: And I haven’t spent a lot of time with finn, but he seems just as laidback and nice as steffy does.

Zende: He’s made my cousin very happy.

Paris: Yeah. I’m looking forward to getting to know him more.

Steffy: I’ve been meaning to ask. How’s granddad?

Ridge: You know how he is. He’s been over to the house, right?

Steffy: Yeah. He’s great with hayes. He loves his great grandchildren. But I get the feeling he’s putting on a brave face.

Ridge: Well, that’s the forrester way, isn’t it?

Steffy: Yeah. I just– I can’t stand what quinn did to him. All he did was defend her and give her the benefit of the doubt.

Ridge: He loved that woman. Didn’t listen to me. Didn’t listen to brooke. Just believed that she could never do anything wrong. That’s why this affair threw him.

Steffy: I hope he doesn’t think that we’re judging him.

Ridge: He knows we’re here for him.

Steffy: [ Scoffs ] I can’t stand what she did.

But first, there’s a Wildcard comp to get to tonight on Big Brother and see what that could mean for team safety.
    We’ve got just two last rounds of the Wildcard to go along with the Teams twist and this will give the three losing teams a shot at safety for their team. It’s not that easy though. First week was a gimme with a little wheel to spin and hand out safety. Last week it was a requirement to change teams to be safe. This week? We’ll soon find out.

    Episode 314 – Airing 7/25/21 (9:01PM) – CASA AMOR, THE ULTIMATE RELATIONSHIP TEST, RETURNS TO “LOVE ISLAND,” SUNDAY, JULY 25 ON CBS
    Existing Relationships Will be Put to the Test as 10 New Sexy Islanders Arrive to Begin Their Quest to Couple Up
    You know the saying: All’s fair in love… and Casa Amor! That’s right, the villa of seduction and betrayal will open its doors again on LOVE ISLAND, beginning Sunday, July 25 (9:00–11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and available to stream live and on demand on the CBS app and Paramount+.
    The current couples on LOVE ISLAND are set to face their biggest relationship test to date with the tempting arrival of five new boys and five new girls who are ready for a little fun in the sun. All the current couples will split up as the original girls move into a brand new villa called Casa Amor to meet and mingle with five new hunks, while the original boys welcome the new girls into their villa. Can the new Islanders turn the OGs’ heads and form new love? Or are the current bonds strong enough to resist the charms of the perfectly tanned, toned and plucked temptations?
  • CBS LOVE ISLAND – Tuesday, July 27 Show More
    Episode 315 – Airing 7/27/21 (9:00PM) – From screenrant.com: Casa Amor is just getting started, and Love Island USA season 3 episode 15 will show how the OG islanders are dealing with these temptations. Charlie Lynch and Raul Frias are going all-in on Cashay Proudfoot, but she’s been more receptive to Charlie so far. In turn, Raul might pursue Kyra Lizama, even if she’s completely closed off to getting to know these guys. Meanwhile, Olivia Kaiser had a great chat with Kam Mickens-Bennett, so she might finally like a guy on the show! Gabe Sadowsky wants to keep testing the waters with Shannon St Pierre, but he’s open to talking to Olivia as well. With that said, Andrew Philips is still finding his footing on the show.
  • CBS BIG BROTHER – Wednesday, July 28 Show More
    Episode 9 (Season 23) – Airing 7/28/21 (8:00 PM) – From bigbrothernetwork.com: Big Brother 23 is back tonight at 8/7c for the latest Power of Veto episode of the season with the new Head of Household, Xavier, and his plans to target one Houseguest with one more hurdle to clear before Thursday. He’s got Brent and Britini on the Block and a high-stakes comp for safety between the overly confident flight attendant and his martial arts rapping co-Nom. Time to see how all the Veto events play out.
    Between the Noms and Veto Ceremony we saw a lot of confidence coming from Brent and I have no idea why other than he’s fooling himself. There was a strange back and forth where he seemed to be worried but that turns out to have possibly just been him trying to play a concerned victim to try and get things to go a way he thought was helping his own game. It wasn’t. Then you’ve got Britini freaking out after being on the Block for “week after week after week” here in her second visit to the danger zone. Good times.
  • CBS LOVE ISLAND – Wednesday, July 28 Show More
    Episode 316 – Airing 7/28/21 (9:01PM) – From screenrant.com: Casa Amor is already coming to an end on Love Island USA season 3 episode 16, which means that the islanders must decide whether they’ll re-couple with newbies or stay with their original partners. The fans expected Casa Amor to last a bit longer, but it seems like the show can’t wait to reunite all the islanders under one roof once again. It seems like a given that Cashay Proudfoot is bringing Charlie Lynch with her to the main villa. It is also very likely that Olivia Kaiser will bring someone with her, perhaps Kam Mickens-Bennett. With that said, this may be the end of the line for the other three Casa boys.
    When it comes to the Casa Amor girls, however, things are even more uncertain. Korey Gandy will likely re-couple with one of the girls, but it’s unclear which of them that would be. Isabel Johnson went all-in for Korey, but he seemed less interested than her. In turn, he’s very interested in Leslie Golden, but she seems into other guys. Speaking of Leslie, there is a possibility that Cinco might want to re-couple with her as well. Florence Mueller (a.k.a. Flo Money) was laser-focused on Will Moncada the entire time, but it’s pretty unlikely that he’d risk hurting Kyra Lizama by re-coupling with someone else this soon.

    Brent or Britini? That is a Big Brother 23 question no one is asking themselves because we all know the answer.
    If you’ve been paying any attention at all, then you know that Brent has been the target since about four days before Frenchie walked out the door. And no one has wavered. Alyssa did question whether or not Brent should stay, but no one else was interested in entertaining the idea. More

At this point, Cashay Proudfoot will have to decide if moving forward with Charlie Lynch is better than sitting with her feelings toward Cinco. Trina Njoroge was happy that Cinco didn’t re-couple with a girl from Casa Amor, but it’s not clear yet if his decision was about her. Meanwhile, Korey Gandy seems to have finally coupled up with a girl he really likes, but Leslie Golden connected with a lot more boys than just him. More

Lenny enters the Tan-O dining area with Phyllis’s, carrying a beer keg. “Mike” is at the bar and goes around and grabs the keg from Lenny. Phyllis is telling Lenny he needs to take it easy, as that was the instruction from the doctor. Lenny tells Phyllis that he wants things in order before he goes into the hospital. Phyllis looks frustrated and sighs. There is a knock on the outside door, and Phyllis, exasperated, says, “We don’t open for another hour.” “Mike” tells her that he’ll get the door. Phyllis and Lenny exit the dining area as “Mike” goes to answer the door. As he opens the door he says, “Sorry, we’re closed.” Nina is standing at the door, and they both smile. They say hello and they hug each other.

Anna and Valentin are in the Quartermain drawing room. He apologizes to her for not being with her last night. She tells him he needed to be with his daughter, who is an angel. Valentin says, “She doesn’t get it from me.” Anna replies, No.”  He asks her about her new theory, and she reluctantly tells him they should be looking for Peter’s enemy.

Elizabeth and Finn greet each other in the hospital hallway. They discuss how much fun it was to watch Violet at her T-ball game, to do something normal and not over think about Peter Austin. Terry walks around the corner and asks, “What’s this about Peter Austin?”

Britt is walking down the stairs in the hospital, thinking about her time with Jason in the gym boxing ring.  She shakes her head and whispers to herself to get it together. She turns as she hears Jason asking for Dr. Quartermain. She turns her head and sees Jason speaking to a nurse at the nurse’s station. The nurse says she isn’t in her office, but she can have her paged. Jason thanks her and sees Britt on the stairs. Britt continues down the stairs. Britt stops at the nurse’s station and turns toward the desk. Jason asks her if it is okay if he says hello. Britt defensively says, “It’s okay to say hello, as long as you know where we stand.” Jason replies, “As long as you know where to find me if you need me.” Britt replies, “I won’t need you.” Austin enters the nurse’s station telling Britt he understands she has to sign off on everything, and he places a folder down on the desk at the nurse’s station. Britt tells him she’s a little busy, and he says it will only take a few seconds. She tells him, “So will this,” as she looks at Jason. He lightly says okay, then turns toward Jason and says, “Hi cuz.” Jason doesn’t respond and Austin says, “Okay, not there yet. I understand.” Jason turns to leave saying he has to find Monica. Austin watches as Jason leaves and says to Britt, with a small smile on his face, “So, what’s going on with you and that guy?”

Elizabeth tells Terry that Finn was updating her on Anna’s search for Peter. Finn tells Terry that Anna hit a dead end. Terry says she’s so sorry, considering that Peter took Franco away from Elizabeth, and what he did to Finn’s brother. Terry says that if there were any real justice, someone would finish him off and be done with it. Finn looks off to the side with guilt.

Anna is saying to Valentin that they were looking for Peter’s ally, but if it was the opposite, then it all adds up. Anna reminds Valentin that David Hawkins, the helicopter pilot, said that the other man on the roof with Peter scared him off from landing. Valentin says that David was denied clearance, and Anna replies that it doesn’t seem likely that would stop him, given what Peter was paying him. Anna adds that Hopkins assumed this other man was trouble, and he wanted to avoid that. Peter didn’t call Hopkins back to say it was okay, that the man wasn’t a threat. Valentin says, “Because he was a threat.”

Nina enters the Tan-O. “Mike” asks Nina if it was hard to leave her grandson, and she replies that it was, but that this is where she belongs right now. “Mike” tells Nina that it will do Phyllis a world of good with Nina being here. Nina says she hopes so, but to be completely honest, Phyllis isn’t the only one she is there for. “Mike” and Nina look at each other.

Alexis tells Sam she is really happy that she’s being transferred, but she needs to remember that she has to serve her time, like everybody else does. Jordan and Shawn walk in, and Jordan announces that Shawn has some news to share. Shawn tells Alexis and Sam that it is official, all the paperwork is signed, and he is a free man.

At the pool, Nikolas tells Ava, as Trina looks on, that he didn’t know she would be there. Ava asks if that will be a problem, and Nikolas tells her that it won’t be. Trina says she will find her and Ava a spot and walks away. Ava explains that the gallery was slow, it was a beautiful day, and she and Trina decided to play hooky. Nikolas offers to leave it will be easier for Ava, and Ava replies, as she touches his chest with her sunglasses, “Oh Nikolas, what about us has ever been easy?” Ava walks off to join Trina and Nikolas watches her walk away. As Ava arrives at the spot Trina arranged for them, Trina says she will be right back. As Trina approaches the entry way near the pool bar, Spencer is entering. Trina tells Spencer he owes her one. He says, “Hello to you, too.” Trina tells him how it would have been so easy to let Nikolas know how Spencer had been in town for weeks before showing his face. Spencer tells her he is grateful and asks if he needs to thank her again. She says he doesn’t, especially now that she knows how he can make it up to her.

“Mike” asks Nina what she meant, and Phyllis enters and is excited to see Nina.  Phyllis tells Nina she should be with her family, and Nina tells her that she is family, too. Lenny approaches and says that Nina and he have a lot to say to each other.

Shawn lets Alexis and Sam know that the governor signed off, there is no more jail time, no parole conditions, and Judge Carson has been urged to resign or risk the consequences of a judicial review. Alexis asks about the other prisoners that Judge Carson sentenced, and Shawn tells her that the governor is reviewing all of them. Alexis asks him what is next, and he says that his focus will be on finding out who really shot Hayden.

Nikolas looks at Ava as he takes his drink to sit down near the pool. Trina grabs Spencer and tells him she has a plan, she intends to “Parent Trap” Nikolas and Ava, because they are miserable.  Trina tells Spencer that a couple on the brink of divorce who love each other, need to know they belong together. Spencer asks her, “What if they don’t?” He points out that someone hates them so much that Ava is terrified for her daughter’s safety. Trina says they shouldn’t give in, that Nikolas and Ava are stronger together. Spencer points out that the incidents have stopped since they broke up, which means this creep is willing to leave them alone now. Trina responds, “Cool, we’ll just give in to a terrorist.”  Spencer lets Trina know he was never really a fan of her boss to begin with. Trina walks off and says she will do it herself. Spencer looks frustrated.

Britt and Austin are at the nurse’s station. Britt asks for Austin’s support for the Chief of Staff position. He asks her what he gets in return. She tells him whatever he wants. He asks, “Whatever I want?” She replies, “Yes.” He tells her that okay, he is in. Britt walks away from the nurse’s station as Austin smiles.

Monica enters her office to find Jason there and they greet each other. He tells Monica that Spinelli did a deep dive on Austin, and that Austin seems to be everything he claims. Monica thanks him and Jason asks if there is anything else she needs. She tells him that he is able to read her very well, and that she would like to talk to him about his engagement.

Valentin and Anna, still in the Quartermaine drawing room, continue to discuss what Anna has begun to realize. Valentin says there were plenty of people at the hospital that day that wanted Peter brought to justice. Anna says that whoever was on that roof, Peter knew a clean getaway was impossible, there would be a witness. Valentin asks if she thinks Peter took out the other person on the roof. Anna replies that no, because nobody else was reported missing. Anna says, “The only reason that person didn’t come forward, is because they had something to do with Peter’s disappearance.” Valentin replies, “So you’re saying Peter didn’t leave the hospital because he was incapable of doing so.”

Lenny and Nina go sit at a table to talk alone at Lenny’s request. Lenny tells Nina he is so grateful for her connections that he is able to get the surgery tomorrow. Lenny tells her he still has reservations, but it is not about the cost.

Shawn says he owes it to Hayden and himself to get to the bottom of whoever shot her. Jordan tells them she and Alexis need to et going to take Alexis to her new prison. Sam hugs Alexis and Alexis tells Shawn to go live his life, and all that goes with it. Shawn tells Alexis the same.

Nikolas strolls into the pool area, and a waiter brings him a drink, saying “Compliments of the beautiful blonde on the last lounge chair.” Nikolas looks toward Ava. Spencer sits up and looks, while Trina looks on from the other end of the pool next to Ava. A waitress brings a drink to Ava, saying “Compliments of a certain gentleman.” When Ava asks which gentleman, the waitress points toward Nikolas, and Austin is standing right behind him. Ava smiles and Austin looks toward the pool.

Valentin, still in the Quartermain drawing room, asks Anna if she thinks the man on the roof with Peter that day incapacitated him, or worse. Anna replies she does. Valentin says, “And he’s been covering his tracks ever since.” Anna replies, “Yeah.”  Then Anna comments that, as Valentin said, there were any number of people at the hospital who wanted Peter dead, so it could have been anyone. Valentin replies that it could be, but that it is obvious that Anna has zeroed in on one. Valentin says it seems Anna is there because she wants him to talk her out of it, but he can’t do that. Valentin says there was one person at the hospital who had every reason to want Peter dead. Anna says, “Don’t say it.” Valentin says, “Finn.”

In the hospital corridor, Terry apologizes to Elizabeth and Finn for losing her cool about Peter. Finn tells her they appreciate it. She asks if she can still count on their support for the Chief of Staff position. Finn tells her she doesn’t even have to ask. Terry walks off and Elizabeth tells Finn she has an idea.

Elizabeth and Finn are walking outside, getting fresh air and have a private conversation. Finn says they are trapped, and Elizabeth responds that maybe not, if Terry gets the chief of staff position. Terry could make sure the cameras are turned off so they could move the body. Finn doesn’t like the idea of involving Terry. Elizabeth tells Finn that the last thing she wants is for Finn to turn himself in to protect her. Finn tells her the last thing he wants is for Peter’s body to be found with Elizabeth’s DNA on it. Finn says the best thing is if the body is never found. Elizabeth tells him there is a way, but Finn won’t like it. Elizabeth says they should get help from Jason.

Monica and Jason sit down on the sofa in Monica’s office. Monica tells Jason she isn’t trying to stop him from marrying Carly. She reminisces about AJ and how things were with Carly, and that Carly always used AJ. Monica wants Jason to know how hard it has been for her. Jason tells Monica that he wouldn’t be there if it wasn’t for Carly.

At the pool, Ava decides to thank Austin for the drink, as she assumes he was the one who ordered it. Trina tries to stop her, to no avail. Ava approaches Austin and thanks him. Nikolas jumps up and tells Ava he appreciates the gesture of good will. Trina approaches behind Ava and Spencer approaches behind Nikolas. Ava is confused, and Nikolas thanks her for the drink. She tells him she didn’t and says that Austin bought her one. Austin says he didn’t buy anyone a drink. Spencer speaks up and says that the only one buying any drinks right now is Trina. Ava turns to look at Trina, who looks guilty.

Monica and Jason, still on Monica’s sofa, Monica is letting Jason know she doesn’t judge him. Jason expresses regrets about his behavior back then, all the lies by everyone, and that he understands how things were for AJ. He tells Monica they have all grown, and that Carly understands life better now, that she has learned to trust others. He reassures Monica that Carly and he know exactly what they are doing. He lets Monica know that he understands that this is hard for her and wants to know if she can accept it. Monica tells Jason she just wants him to be happy. She asks him if this was his choice, that Carly isn’t maneuvering him into it. Jason reassures her that it is. Monica tells him that she is happy for him. She does tell him that it will be difficult for her to be in the same room with Carly, but that she thinks it is the same for Carly. Jason lets her know he appreciates that she makes the effort form him. Monica tells Jason she loves him, and that her love for him and Michael are the two things she and Carly have in common. Jason and Monica hug. Jason leaves Monica’s office.

Lenny and Nina are still sitting at a table in the Tan-O. Lenny tells Nina that there was another reason that he was against her paying for everything, that she was offering Phyllis hope, because the growth that was found is on his pancreas. And that is often a death sentence. Nina responds by saying often isn’t always. Lenny tells Nina that he can get over someone providing the money for the medical treatment, but he can’t get over someone providing his wife hope, when there isn’t any.

In the hospital hallway outside the elevators, Britt and Terry are walking in opposite directions and greet each other cordially, “Dr. Randolph.” “Dr. Westbourne.” They each mention that they notice the other having talks with their individual supporters. Britt asks Terry what she needs to do to get Terry to drop out of the competition. Britt says that since Terry is “team Elizabeth,” maybe Britt could give Elizabeth a raise. Terry responds that that is exactly why she wants to be chief of staff, that she doesn’t double deal or get into bed with scum like Cyrus Renault. Terry says she wants what is best for the hospital. Britt says she does too. Monica walks up to ask if everything is alright. Terry says yes and Britt says, “Just peachy.” Monica replies good, because she wants to see both of them in her office. Monica walks away, and both Terry and Britt gesture for the other to go ahead, both gritting their teeth.

Still in the Quartermain drawing room, Anna tells Valentin she went to the hospital to let Finn know about their progress in the search for Peter.  Valentin, caringly, asks, “And?” Anna, shakily replies, “It was all there. In his body language, the way he spoke, an uh, it just made sense suddenly.” She continued, “The description; male, tall, light suit, dark hair to the collar, it was Finn.” Valentin looks on Anna with a pained expression.

Finn and Elizabeth continue to discuss the situation while outside. Elizabeth is telling Finn that getting Jason involved will solve all their problems. Finn expresses concern that any goodwill they may have with the cops will go right out the window if they collaborate with a hitman. Elizabeth tells Finn that Jason doesn’t get caught. As Elizabeth and Finn are having their animated discussion, Jason comes along, out of sight of Elizabeth and Finn. He moves closer to hear their discussion. Jason hears Elizabeth tell Finn that Jason has dealt with people just like Peter, and he doesn’t get caught because there isn’t any evidence. Finn tells Elizabeth that he doesn’t think they can involve anyone else, that Peter was a threat, now he isn’t. They need to deal with the situation themselves.

Nina, still sitting with Lenny, tells him she believes in hope, and she believes in him. Lenny asks Nina to promise that when it becomes clear there is no more battle to fight, she won’t let Phyllis continue to hope. Before Nina can respond, Phyllis approaches and asks if they are finished. Nina wipes away tears and Lenny tells her he is so grateful. Phyllis and Lenny go hand and hand to sit at the bar, “Mike” approaches Nina and asks her if she is okay. Nina tells “Mike” she is so sorry they are going through this and that she is happy she is there, that she is…. “Mike” says, “You’re home?” Nina smiles.

Alexis and Jordan walk into a room with tables, chairs, a counter with cups, a bulletin board, and a guard standing by a window.  Jordan explains that everything is separated by gender, except for the communal recreation area, as she gestures around the room.  Alexis comments it is similar to her freshman room. Jordan reminds her that it is still a prison. She cautions Alexis that the warden will make things difficult if it appears that it is anything other than rest and rehabilitation, and she could even end up back at Pentonville.

Shawn and Sam are talking in the police station, and Sam asks him about the voice message he left her asking if she was still doing P.I. work. Shawn says he has a job for her, and Sam says she guesses it is about finding the person who committed the crime he went to prison for.

At the pool, upon hearing that Trina had planned to “Parent Trap” Nikolas and Ava, Austin asks her if she is a twin. Spencer says that Trina is trying to convince Nikolas an Ava that they are still in love with each other. Nikolas replies that she isn’t wrong. Ava turns to Trina and asks if she has anything to say. Trina apologizes. She says she realizes it was juvenile, but that she hates what all this is doing to Ava, and that Ava is supposed to be happy. Spenser says to Nikolas and Ava that it obviously can’t be easy, and to Trina he says, “But you can not play with people’s hearts like that.” Trina looks Spenser in the eyes and says, “you mean like you are?” Nikolas looks at Spenser.

In the Quartermaine drawing room, Valentin tells Anna that it is going to be difficult for her to prove that the man she loves killed Peter. Anna replies that they don’t know that Finn killed Peter. Valentin responds that if Finn was on the roof with Peter that day, Finn would know how and if Peter left the hospital. Valentin supposes that possibly Peter extorted Finn to help him escape by giving him another antidote. Anna surmises that if that did happen, Finn would have come clean to her about it. Valentin adds that it is possible that Finn did something to Peter. Anna replies that there is only one way to find out.

Outside, Elizabeth is telling Finn that she hears him, but they are not equipped to handle it on their own, they have no plan. Finn says he’ll think of one, he just needs more time.  Finn tells her everything is going to be okay as he looks at his watch. He tells her he has to get back to the hospital. Jason is still standing out of sight and listening to their conversation.  Finn walks away. Jason steps out from behind the trees and says, “Elizabeth, we need to talk.” Elizabeth looks at Jason.

At the Tan-O, Lenny, Phyllis, Nina, and “Mike” are at the bar, smiling. Lenny passes out the beer and Phyllis asks him about drinking the night before surgery. He comments that fasting doesn’t start until nine. They all lift their bottles in a toast as “Mike” says, “To Lenny.” Lenny responds, “To hell with that, to Family, the chosen one.” As they enjoy their beers, Phyllis says it’s time to open up, and Phyllis and Lenny walk off. “Mike” asks Nina how long she is going to stay, and she tells him as long as needed. He tells her it could be a long time. She replies that it could be.

At the Port Charles police station, Sam and Shawn are still talking. Sam tells him there is no way she could say no to his request, but she will have to check with her parole officer since it could violate her probation if she were to be associated with him since she still has about three months on her probation.

At the pool, Spencer tells Trina that his father already knows all about how he tried to push him and Britt together. Trina apologizes to Ava again and goes off in tears. Ava starts to go after her, but Spencer says he will. Nikolas asks Ava where that leaves them, and she tells him right where they were, in the midst of a divorce, and for her family’s safety, six weeks can’t pass soon enough. Ava walks over to Austin and offers to buy him another drink. They walk toward the bar together.

Alexis says goodbye and thank you to Jordan as she leaves the communal recreation room at the new prison. As Alexis walks over and picks up a magazine, the wheels of a wheelchair are seen being pushed along in the room by an attendant. Alexis looks up with recognition as the wheelchair is moved to within a few feet of her. The attendant locks the chair into position as Alexis continues to stare. As the attendant walks away, we see the face of Ryan Chamberlain. Alexis slowly lowers the magazine. Ryan does not look up.

Monica is meeting with Britt and Terry in her office. She is telling them that she wants them to know that she has made her official recommendation as to who should be chief of staff. Britt and Terry look at each other.

Finn is sitting in his office, toying with a pen and staring off into space. There is a knock on his door and Anna is there. Finn says, “Hi, do you have an update on Peter’s whereabouts?” Anna replies, “I just might.” Finn nods his head.

Jason approaches Elizabeth on the walkway outside and asks her what is going on. Elizabeth replies that she is fine. He tells her that if that was true, he would be glad. He then tells her things he knows, “About a week ago she told him that Peter was something we didn’t need to worry about anymore. You were about to tell me something else when Finn walked up. Now, you and Finn are in the park in the middle of a workday talking about Peter and a mess that needs to be cleaned up. Now I understand you are trying to protect Finn. You don’t have to protect him with me. Okay? Now if you know what happened to Peter all you have to do is tell me, and I will help you.” Elizabeth looks at Jason.

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

Spencer: Would you cheer up already?  Sun’s out. We’re spending quality father-son time. Isn’t this what you wanted?

Nikolas: No, yeah, yeah, of course it is.

Spencer: Right. Well, why don’t you grab us something to drink while I go change into my suit?


Shawn: Hey. This a bad time?

Jordan: Uh, seems like there’s never really a good time in here. I didn’t know you were stopping by.

Shawn: Well, I didn’t know I was, either, but I just met with my lawyer. And I have news.


Sam: I’ve got to say, I’m really happy it worked out this way.

Alexis: Thank you.

Sam: A rehabilitation-based facility. They’ve got to have vocational training, therapy.

Alexis: AA meetings.

Sam: AA meetings. And just think, you can walk the perimeter without having to worry about getting chopped up by barbed wire.

Alexis: [ Sarcastically ] Hey! Sounds like heaven.

Sam: Mom… [ Sighs ] I’m so sorry.

Alexis: Don’t be. You’re putting a positive spin on it. You know, I’m really grateful for the shift, but it’s still prison, no matter how you look at it.


Phyllis: You really think this is what Dr. Kishore meant when she said to take it easy?

Sonny: Lenny. Let me have that.

Lenny: I’m fine.

Phyllis: You should be resting.

Lenny: For what?

Phyllis: Oh, I don’t know. Your exploratory surgery in Llanview tomorrow?

Lenny: Where I’ll be lying on a hospital bed. Plenty of time to rest then. Look, come on. Business is finally booming, and I want things in order if I’m gonna be laid out.

Phyllis: [ Scoffs ] An answer for everything.

Lenny: That’s why you love me.

Phyllis: No more heavy lifting.

Lenny: Deal.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]

[ Knock on door ]

Phyllis: We don’t open for another hour.

Sonny: I’ll get rid of ’em.

Phyllis: Thank you, Mike.

Sonny: Sorry, we’re closed.

Nina: Hi.

Sonny: Hi, yourself.

[ Both laugh ]

Sonny: Dang.


Valentin: Sorry I couldn’t meet you last night.

Anna: Oh, don’t be silly. You wanted to spend time with your daughter. Who can blame you? She’s an angel.

Valentin: She doesn’t get it from me.

Anna: No.

Valentin: You want to tell me your new theory?

Anna: Yeah. We’ve been trying to figure out who Peter’s accomplice was.

Valentin: You think we should be looking for an enemy.


Elizabeth: Hey.

Finn: Hi.

Elizabeth: How’s Violet? Still celebrating her big hit?

Finn: Oh, yeah. According to my daughter, she’s ready to go pro.

Elizabeth: Oh, knowing her, she just might.

Finn: Right?

Elizabeth: [ Chuckles ] It was so nice doing something normal, wasn’t it?

Finn: Mm.

Elizabeth: I’ll take watching a T-ball game over thinking about Peter August any day.

Terry: What’s this about Peter?


Britt: I just want to have a good time. You remember what that is? A good time?

Jason: Vaguely.

Britt: [ Chuckles ] Top down, wind in my hair.

Jason: Oh, so, what, now — now it’s a convertible?

Britt: Obviously. Maybe I’ll take you for a ride, if you’re not too scared.

Jason: Speed doesn’t scare me.

Britt: Even with me behind the wheel?

Jason: I said you were an awful driver. I didn’t say you were unsafe.

Britt:  Oh, I am definitely unsafe.

Britt: [ Sighs ] Pull it together, Westbourne.

Jason: Hey, is Dr. Quartermaine around?

Nurse: She’s not in her office, but I can have her paged.

Jason: Thank you. Is it okay if I say hello?


Britt: You want to say hello, you can say hello. I don’t tell you what to do. Just as long as you’re clear on where we stand.

Jason: As long as you know where to find me if you need me.

Britt: I won’t need you.

Austin: Dr. Westbourne, I understand you have to sign off on everything in this hospital, so I brought you a pen.

Britt: Uh, I’m a little busy.

Austin: Okay. It’ll take like two seconds.

Britt: So will this.

Austin: Gotcha.  Hey, Cuz. How are you? We’re not there yet?  Okay, I understand.

Jason: I got to find Monica.

Austin: What’s going on with you and that guy?


Elizabeth: Finn was updating me on Anna’s search for Peter.

Finn: That’s right. She — she hit a dead end.

Terry: Oh, Biz, I’m so sorry. That monster took Franco from you, not to mention what he did to your brother. You know what? Prison would be too good for Peter. If there were any real justice, someone would finish him off and be done with it.


Anna: So, we were looking for Peter’s ally. But if it’s the opposite, then it all adds up. David Hopkins. He said he saw another man standing on the roof with Peter and that this man scared him off from landing.

Valentin: Now, Hopkins was denied clearance to land.

Anna: Yes, he was denied clearance. But do you think that would really stop him, given what Peter was paying?

Valentin: No, probably not.

Anna: Because Hopkins assumed that this other man was trouble, and he wanted to avoid that. And why didn’t Peter call him back, you know, and explain, “it’s okay. This man isn’t a threat”?

Valentin: Because he was a threat.


Nina: Surprise.

Sonny: Was it hard for you to leave your grandson?

Nina: Um, yeah, it was, but we have all the time in the world to be together, he and I, and this is where I belong right now.

Sonny: It’s good to see you.

Nina: It’s nice to see you.

Sonny: It’s — it’s gonna do a world of good for Phyllis that you’re here.

Nina: Yeah, I hope so, but… if I’m completely honest, she’s not the only one I’m here for.


Alexis: I’m really happy that I’m being transferred. I just can’t forget that I pled guilty because I am guilty, and I need to serve my time like anybody else.

Jordan: I hope you don’t mind, but Shawn has some news that he wants to share with you.

Shawn: It’s official — all the paperwork filed. As of today… I’m a free man.

Alexis: Oh! Oh.

Sam: Nice.


Nikolas: I didn’t realize you’d be here.

Ava: Is that a problem for you?

Nikolas: No, of course not. It’s always good to see you.

Trina: I’ll find us a spot.

Ava: Thank you, Trina. Uh, the gallery was — was slow, you know, what with the… beautiful weather and all.

Nikolas: Beautiful is the word.

Ava: We decided to close up shop and play hooky.

Nikolas: I can leave if it’d be easier for you.

Ava: Oh, Nikolas. What about us has ever been easy, huh?


Trina: I’ll be right back.

Ava: Okay.

Trina: You owe me one.

Spencer: Hello to you, too.

Trina: I could have blown your spot, told your dad all about how you were in town for weeks before you decided to show your face.

Spencer: But you didn’t, and I’m grateful. Do I need to say thank you again?

Trina: Nah, especially now that I know how you’ll make it up to me.


Phyllis: Nina! Oh! What are you — we weren’t expecting to see you so soon.

Nina: It’s so nice to see you. What, did you think I could stay away? I wanted to be here for you and Lenny.

Phyllis: You’ve already done so much as it is. And your family needs you in Port Charles.

Nina: Phyllis, you’re my family, too.

Phyllis: [ Laughing ] Oh.

Nina: Hey, there he is!

Lenny: You and I have a lot to say to each other.


Alexis: So the governor signed off?

Shawn: According to the powers of his office, my sentence was commuted and the appropriate paperwork was recorded and finalized.

Sam: And that’s it? No jail time?

Shawn: I’m out, time served, with no parole conditions. As for Judge Carson, the governor has urged her to resign from the bench or risk consequences from the judicial review board.

Alexis: So, what about the other defendants that were treated unfairly?

Shawn: Those sentences are being reviewed, with the governor putting pressure on the board to expedite the process.

Alexis: That’s it. It’s over.

Jordan: We’re gonna make plans with Molly and TJ to tell the other defendants tonight.

Alexis: They did right by us.

Shawn: Yeah, they sure did.

Alexis: I’m happy for you.

Sam: I’m really happy for you, too. Kind of jealous of the whole no-parole thing, though, but I’m — I am really happy.

Alexis: So what’s next? You got your whole life ahead of you.

Shawn: Uh, I’ve got time to think about that.

Alexis: Yeah, you do.

Shawn: But for now, my focus will be to make sure whoever shot Hayden be brought to justice.


Trina: Ava and your father are completely miserable.

Spencer: And?

Trina: And there’s really only one solution. We need to “Parent Trap” them.

Spencer: You have a twin?

Trina: What? No. We need to convince this couple on the brink of divorce that they belong together.

Spencer: Okay, but what if they don’t? I mean, someone hates them so much that Ava is terrified for her daughter’s safety.

Trina: Which is why Ava shouldn’t give in to him. Nikolas and Ava are stronger together.

Spencer: I don’t know. The incidents have stopped since they broke up. Tells me this creep is willing to leave Ava alone now.

Trina: No, that’s cool. We’ll just give in to a terrorist.

Spencer: Can I be completely honest?

Trina: I don’t know. Can you?

Spencer: Even if I agreed with you on the terrorist thing, I was never really a fan of your boss to begin with, so…

Trina: Whatever. I’ll do it myself.


Britt: I’ve been meaning to seek you out.

Austin: I’m flattered.

Britt: As I’m sure you’ve heard, things are in flux around here.

Austin: Right, the chief of staff thing.

Britt: Yes. And to retain my position, I’m going to need as many allies as possible.

Austin: Yeah, I understand.

Britt: And since I am the one who hired you, I would appreciate your support.

Austin: I’m sure you would. What do I get in exchange?

Britt: Other than the fact I’m the reason you have a job?

Austin: Right, other than that, correct.

Britt: Advocate for me to Dr. Quartermaine, and I’ll sign off on whatever you need.

Austin: Whatever I need.

Britt: Mm-hmm.

Austin: Whatever I need.

Britt: Whatever.

Austin: Okay, done.

Britt: Good.

Austin: Great.

Britt: Thank you.

Austin: You’re welcome.


Monica: Well, hi.

Jason: Hey. I hope you don’t mind I stopped by.

Monica: No. I mean, I’m always happy to see you. And I have a feeling that you are here to give me an update.

Jason: Yes. Uh, I had Spinelli do a deep dive on Austin. Seems legit. Son of Jimmy Lee Holt and Charity Gatlin. No felonies. I mean, he is who he says he is.

Monica: Well, thank you and Spinelli for looking into it.

Jason: Mm-hmm. Uh, did you need anything else?

Monica: You can read me very well. Actually… I’d like to talk to you about your engagement.


Valentin: Anna, there were plenty of people at General Hospital that day that wanted Peter brought to justice.

Anna: Yeah. Whoever was on that roof with him, you know, Peter knew that a clean getaway was impossible, because this person was a witness.

Valentin: A witness. You think Peter took him out?

Anna: No. There’s no one else reported missing. No. The only reason that that person didn’t come forward is because… they had something to do with Peter’s disappearance.

Valentin: So you’re saying Peter didn’t leave the hospital because he was incapable of doing so.


Lenny: Is it okay if Nina and I have a minute alone?

Nina: I would love that. It’s been a while since we’ve been able to catch up. Come on, you want to — yeah. Over here? Okay. Thank you.

Lenny: I just want to make something clear. I am incredibly grateful for your connections. The fact that I’m getting this surgery tomorrow so close to home… [ Chuckles ] That’s all because of you.

Nina: Well, thank you, Lenny, but it’s really all because of my late ex-husband. You know, he was very close to Dr. Hartman. Dr. Hartman was very happy to do it, as was I. Lenny, you’ve always been so kind to me. And Phyllis, you know how I feel about her.

Lenny: I do, which is why I need to level with you.

Nina: Okay.

Lenny: I’m going into this with a lot of reservations.

Nina: Yeah, Mike told me that you had some hesitation about the cost.

Lenny: [ Sighs ] It’s not about the money, Nina. It never was.


Shawn: Someone tried to kill Hayden. They’re still out there, thinking they got away with it. Well, maybe it’s connected to her subsequent disappearance, maybe not. But I owe it to her, and myself, to uncover the truth.

Alexis: Of course you do. And you should.

Jordan: Okay. I hate to ruin the celebration, but we’re due at the new facility.

Alexis: Wow. I get an escort from the commissioner. I’m honored.

Sam: Do you — just —

Jordan: Of course.

Sam: I love you.

Alexis: I love you. [ Chuckles ]

Sam: Me and the girls are gonna come up and visit as often as we can, okay?

Alexis: Okay. You go live your life and all that goes with it.

Shawn: You, too, Alexis.

Alexis: And you do what you have to do to nail that son of a bitch.

Shawn: On it.


Waiter: With compliments from the beautiful blond in the last lounge chair.

Waitress: Compliments from a certain gentleman.

Ava: Oh, thank you. How nice. Uh, which gentleman is that?

Waitress: Right over there. Enjoy.


Valentin: You think maybe the man on the roof with Peter that day incapacitated him or worse?

Anna: Yes.

Valentin: And he’s been covering his tracks ever since.

Anna: Yeah. But like you said, you know, there’s no shortage of people at the hospital who want Peter gone, dead, um, so it could be any number of men that night.

Valentin: Yeah, yeah, it could be. But I think it’s obvious you’ve zeroed in on one. And that’s probably why you’re here, because you want me to talk you out of it.  But I can’t do that. I think you and I both know there was a man at the hospital that day with every reason in the world to hurt Peter.

Anna: Don’t say it.

Valentin: Finn.


Terry: I am sorry. Me losing my cool about Peter probably isn’t helping either one of you.

Finn: No, no, we — we appreciate it, Terry. We do.

Terry: I can still count on your support in my bid for chief of staff?

Finn: You don’t even have to ask.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Terry: I have to see about a patient. See you later.

Finn: Yeah. See you.

Elizabeth: See you later.

Finn: What?

Elizabeth: I have an idea.

Finn: Yeah?

Elizabeth: See, isn’t this nice — going for a walk, getting a little fresh air, soaking up the sun, little vitamin D?

Finn: Have a private conversation?

Elizabeth: Exactly. We need to figure this out. We can’t leave Peter’s body in the lab forever, nor can we risk moving him while the cameras are running.

Finn: So we are effectively trapped, like we’ve been for weeks.

Elizabeth: Maybe not. If Terry becomes chief of staff, she can make the security cameras go dark again.

Finn: You really want to involve Terry in this?

Elizabeth: We’ve been friends since we were little. If I asked her to do it, she would. We wouldn’t even have to tell her about Peter.

Finn: No.

Elizabeth: No? That’s it, just no?

Finn: Pretty much.

Elizabeth: I feel like we’re tripping over each other here.

Finn: I know.

Elizabeth: The last thing I want is for you to turn yourself in to protect me.

Finn: And the last thing I want is for them to find Peter’s body and your DNA to be on it. I’d rather take the fall alone than implicate you in any way. The best thing for everyone is if this body’s never found.

Elizabeth: Which — and you’re not gonna like it — brings us back to Jason.


Monica: Well, first of all, I want you to know that I’m not trying to stop you. I learned a long time ago that I cannot control your life. Actually, I just wanted to — to let you know what’s in my heart and… why it hurts every time I think about what Carly did to your brother.

Jason: Okay.

Monica: Now, I know A.J. was a very troubled and very flawed man, but there was a time when I — when I really had hope, Jason. In spite of all the bad decisions he had made, I thought maybe this one time, he can turn his life around. He can — he can be better. He can do better. But Carly made sure that that never happened.

Jason: [ Sighs ]

Monica: Because Carly always used A.J. as a stepping stone to you. So that destroyed whatever was left with A.J. And, good heavens, I know this was a long time ago. Michael was just an infant. And Carly has grown up and lived her life. I’m just trying to tell you… just how hard it’s been for me.

Jason: I respect you. You know that.

Monica: Yes, I know that.

Jason: And obviously, you get to feel how you want to feel. But the truth is… I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Carly.


Ava: This is so nice. I should go thank him.

Trina: No, no, Ava, wait. Wait, wait — Ava. Wait.

Ava: Hi.

Austin: Hi.

Ava: Thank you so much. I-I’d like to return the favor, so, um, next round’s on me, huh?

Austin: Uh, sure. I’m not really entire–

Nikolas: I appreciate the gesture of good will. Does this mean you’re open to talking?

Ava: Huh?

Nikolas: The drink you bought me.

Ava: Uh, I didn’t buy you a drink. But he bought me a drink.

Austin: Oh, I didn’t. I didn’t buy anyone a drink. Not that I wouldn’t. I’m not cheap.

Spencer: Uh, the only one buying any drinks right now is Trina. She’s trying to “Parent Trap” you.


Monica: I know you owe a lot to Carly. Why do you think I’ve cut her so much slack all these years? And you love each other completely. So I’m — I’m not judging you.

Jason: I know. Looking — looking back at that time that you’re talking about… you know, everything around Michael’s birth, just all the lies, nobody wanting to give an inch… we were all wrong. How A.J. treated Carly, how we treated A.J. I can see how A.J. wasn’t all that bad.

Monica: You can?

Jason: Yeah. I mean, he was just trying to get access to his kid, and it was — that was his right. But not in the way he went about it. But I get it. And I have no excuse for my actions.

Monica: But Carly does?

Jason: Carly lied because A.J. said he was gonna take the baby as soon as it was born. And when Carly gets threatened, she — she comes out swinging. And that hasn’t changed. But what has changed is that she’s learned to — to love people, to trust people. You know, and now she understands that there are some things worth fighting for, and there are some things that aren’t worth fighting for. But we know exactly what we’re doing by getting married, okay? I just, I-I understand — I really do understand why this is hard for you, but I’m — I’m just asking you, can — can you accept it?

Monica: I just want you to be happy. So one more thing.

Jason: Yeah. Okay.

Monica: [ Chuckles ] This was your choice, wasn’t it? It wasn’t some maneuvering of — of Carly’s? It was your decision, right?

Yes. Yes, Carly and I made this decision together. It’s what we both want.

Monica: Okay. Then I am happy for you. Oh, but just to let you know, it is never gonna be easy for me to be in the same room with Carly. But, in all fairness, I think it works both ways.

Jason: Well, I appreciate you making the effort for Carly. Because I-I know you always make it for me.

Monica: I love you.  See, that’s the one thing — no, Michael makes it two — that Carly and I have in common.

Jason: I love you, too.


Lenny: Mike told you what I told him. And yeah, the bills from all this are on my mind. But the truth is, as soon as the doctor saw that spot, there was another reason I fought against you paying for everything. Because you weren’t just offering money to Phyllis. You were offering her hope. The — the growth they found that they want to biopsy and explore… [ Chuckles ] …It’s on my pancreas. Everyone knows that’s often a death sentence.

Nina: Lenny, often isn’t always.

Lenny: True. But if this surgery confirms what Dr. Kishore saw, the numbers aren’t in my favor. Money and pride, I can get over that. What I’ll never get over is… someone giving my wife hope when there isn’t any.


Britt: Dr. Randolph.

Terry: Dr. Westbourne.

Britt: Chief Westbourne, for now, at least.

Terry: Speaking of, I can’t help but notice that you’ve been having lots of talks with Dr. Gatlin-Holt and Dr. Navarro.

Britt: You’re collecting your people. So am I. You know, Terry, I don’t like this competition much, either. So give it to me straight. What do I need to do to get you to drop out of the race?

Terry: Excuse me?

Britt: Well, I know you’re only digging your heels in ’cause you’re team Elizabeth. So, what can I do? Give her a raise? Add more funding to your department? What?

Terry: And this is the exact reason why I want to be chief of staff. I’m just as qualified a physician, yet I don’t double-deal or get into bed with scum like Cyrus Renault.  I just want what’s best for the hospital.

Britt: So do I.

Terry: [ Scoffs ]

Monica: Hello. Is everything okay here?

Terry: Perfect.

Britt: Just peachy.

Monica: Good, good, because I would like to see both of you in my office, please.


Anna: I went to see Finn today at the hospital just to — just to update him.

Valentin: And?

Anna: Oh, it was there. It was all there — in his body language, the way he spoke. And, uh… then it just made sense suddenly, the description — male, tall, light suit, dark hair to the collar. It was Finn.


Elizabeth: Looping Jason in could be the solution to all of our problems.

Finn: No, thanks.

Elizabeth: Finn.

Finn: Look, if we get caught, any good will we might have with the cops goes right out the window when they know you collaborated with a hit man.

Elizabeth: That’s the point. Jason doesn’t get caught. This is literally his profession. He’s been a suspect in multiple murders and disappearances of really bad people, by the way, people roughly on par with Peter. But Jason has never been convicted in any investigation. Why? Because there’s never any evidence. If anyone could get rid of this problem, it’s Jason.

Finn: Elizabeth, I don’t think we can risk involving him or anyone else. Peter was a threat. Now he’s not. Whatever mess that created… we clean it up ourselves.


Nina: Hope is a very powerful thing. I believe in that. And, Lenny… you’re very strong. I believe in you.

Lenny: And I appreciate all the good energy. But I need to ask something of you. And I know that’s a lot on top of everything else you’ve done.

Nina: You can ask me anything.

Lenny: Make me a promise?

Nina: Name it.

Lenny: When it becomes clear… that there’s no more battle to fight… you won’t let Phyllis hold on. It’ll just make it that much harder for her when the worst happens.

Nina: If the worst happens.

Lenny: Please. Can you do that for me?

Phyllis: You two finished yacking it up?

Lenny: Yeah. [ Chuckles ] I just needed to say a proper thank-you. I’m so grateful, Nina. For everything.

Nina: [ Sighs ]

Sonny: You okay?

Nina: It’s just really em-emotional. I just — I feel really bad that they’re going through this. One thing I’m happy about is I am happy that I’m here. I’m happy that I’m —

Sonny: You’re home.


Jordan: So, someone will take you to your housing soon. That, the cafeteria, and most other sections are segregated by gender, well, except this communal recreation area. Visitations also happen here.

Alexis: I got to tell you, this isn’t much worse than my freshman common room.

Jordan: [ Chuckles ] This facility has infinitely more privileges than Pentonville, but it’s still a prison, so you need to be on guard.

Alexis: So the rules that my, uh, consultant gave me still apply.

Jordan: Well, don’t let these cushy accommodations make you forget your place. If the warden senses that this is about anything other than restitution and rehabilitation, she will make your stay here difficult at best.

Alexis: And at worst?

Jordan: She’ll make it all go away and send you back to Pentonville.


Sam: So, I got your voicemail last night, asking if I was still in the P.I. game?

Shawn: I have a job for you.

Sam: Let me guess — it is to find the person who committed the crime that you went to prison for.

Shawn: And get them off the streets before they hurt someone else.


Austin: “Parent Trap.” Are you a twin?

Trina: Oh, my god.

Spencer: She’s trying to convince you that you’re still in love with each other.

Nikolas: Well, she wouldn’t be wrong.

Ava: Trina, do you have anything to say?

Trina: I’m sorry. I know it seems kind of juvenile.

Spencer: Kind of?

Trina: But I hate what this is doing to you. I just want you to be happy.

Spencer: Look, this isn’t easy for either of you, obviously. But you cannot play games with people’s hearts like that.

Trina: You mean like you are?


Valentin: Anna, this is going to be difficult for you… if you have to prove that a man you love killed Peter.

Anna: We don’t know that. We don’t know that Finn killed Peter.

Valentin: Okay. Okay, but if we assume that Finn was on the roof with Peter that day, then he would obviously know how and if Peter left the hospital. I mean, it’s n– it’s not impossible that maybe he extorted Finn, forced him to help him escape in exchange for one final dose of the antidote.

Anna: No. I mean, yes, yes, that is a possibility, but… once Finn had developed the antidote, then he would have come clean to me about that.

Valentin: So it’s possible that Finn did something to Peter.

Anna: There’s only one way to find out.


Elizabeth: I hear you, I understand what you’re saying, but we are not equipped to handle this on our own. We have no plan.

Finn: I’ll think of one. I just need some more time. Hey. Everything’s gonna be okay. I have to get back to the hospital.

Jason: Elizabeth. We need to talk.


Phyllis: Uh, drinking the night before surgery?

Lenny: The fast doesn’t start until dark.

[ Laughter ]

Lenny:  Oh, come on. Don’t deny me this. How long before my next one?

Sonny: To Lenny.

Nina: Mm.

Lenny:  Oh, to hell with that.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ]

Lenny:  To family.

Phyllis: Ah.

Lenny:  The chosen kind.

Phyllis: Mm.

Nina: To family.

Phyllis: To family.

Nina: Mmm. Mmm.

Sonny: Mmm.

Nina: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: Time to open up. Lenny, why don’t you give me a hand?

Lenny: I thought you told me to take it easy.

[ Sonny laughs ]

Sonny: S-subtlety is not one of Phyllis’s strong points.

Nina: Mnh-mnh, god love her.

Sonny: So, uh… we got a lot of catching up to do. How long you staying?

Nina: As long as I’m needed.

Sonny: Could be a long time.

Nina: It could be.


Sam: After what you just did for my mother, there is absolutely no way I could say no to you, so, yes, I will — I will do whatever you need.

Shawn: Yeah?

Sam: Yeah. I’m just gonna have to ask my current parole officer, because I still have like…three months left before I can spend time around another convicted felon.

Shawn: Uh, do you think it’ll be a problem?

Sam: Uh, I don’t — I don’t think so.  Pretty lenient, considering. It’s a long story.

Shawn: So, when can we start?

Sam: How about now?

Shawn: Sooner we get the ball rolling, the sooner we get Hayden’s shooter.


Spencer: Don’t bother, Trina. My father knows all about how I tried pushing him and Britt together.

Trina: Oh. Well, as long as everyone’s being honest with each other. Again, I’m sorry.

Ava: Oh, Trina.

Spencer: I’ll talk to her.

Nikolas: So, where does that leave us?

Ava: It leaves us right where we’ve been, Nikolas. In the midst of a divorce. And for my family’s safety, these six weeks can’t pass quickly enough.  Ah, perfect timing. [ Chuckles ] Let me get you another drink, huh?

Austin: Okay.


Alexis: I’m well aware this is not a vacation. I still have a lot of work to do on myself. A lot.

Jordan: Hey. Good luck, Alexis.

Alexis: Thank you very much. Really.


Monica: I wanted you both to be the first to know that I have made my official recommendation on who should be chief of staff.


[ Knock on door ]

Finn:  Hi. You have an update on Peter’s whereabouts?

Anna: I just might.


Jason: What’s going on?

Elizabeth: I’m fine. Really.

Jason: Uh, if that was true, I would — I would be glad. But here’s what I know. About a week ago, you told me that Peter wasn’t anything that we had to worry about anymore. And you were about to tell me something else, and then Finn walked up, and now you and Finn are in the park in the middle of a workday talking about Peter and a mess that needs to be cleaned up. Look, I understand you’re trying to protect Finn. You don’t have to protect him with me. Okay? If you know what happened to Peter, all you have to do is tell me. I will help you.

On the next “General Hospital” —

Britt: Are you eavesdropping on me?

Shawn (to Sam): There’s our target now.

Alexis: Fancy meeting you here.

Monica: We’ve made our decision.

Nikolas: I could lose my wife.

Anna (to Finn): If I follow Peter’s trail, the police won’t be far behind.

Jason (to Elizabeth): I’m pretty sure you’re in trouble. Let me help you.

Nina (to Sonny): We got a lot of catching up to do.

Young & The Restless Transcript

Y&R logo

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Billy: Sharon, good to see you. It’s been a while.

Sharon: You seem like you’re in a really good mood today.

Billy: [ Chuckles ]

Sharon: Any particular reason why?

Billy: Actually, I could give you a laundry list. ChancComm is thriving. Lily is fantastic. I’m spending more time with my kids. And Victor is out of town. Doesn’t get better than that. Oops-a-daisy. I’m gonna take that back. Why do you let riffraff like that hang out in your fine establishment?

Sharon: One person’s riffraff is another’s valued customer.

Billy: Oh, come on. Are you kidding me?

Sharon: Come on, Billy. You know, the truth is out now. Adam was framed by Chelsea. He had nothing to do with poisoning Rey. Doesn’t that at least make you question if maybe you’ve misjudged him in other ways, as well?

Billy: No, it doesn’t. Not at all. And I wouldn’t be so quick to say that he didn’t have anything to do with Chelsea’s attack on Rey. He drove her to a point of madness. That’s what he does. That’s a pattern. And I’m surprised that a mental-health professional as yourself doesn’t see that.


Victoria: Oh, hey. You’re up already.

Ashland: Hi.

Victoria: I thought you were gonna take it easy, sleep in a little bit.

Ashland: Well, normally at this time of day, I’d have hit the gym by now, taken a breakfast meeting, had a couple of conference calls under my belt. Obviously, I can’t stick to that routine now, but I don’t intend to sleep the day away, either.

Victoria: I know. I was just hoping maybe you would take it easier here than you would in a hotel room.

Ashland: Well, that was the plan. But before I slip into semi-retirement, I need to take care of a long list of things back in New York.

Victoria: Oh, you didn’t mention that you were planning a trip.

Ashland: I have to go back and, uh, settle my affairs, as they say, collect a few items from my office and check in with a couple of people, as well. I won’t be gone long. I wouldn’t even be going at all if it wasn’t for the fact that there are certain things I need to handle personally. I’m sure you can understand that.

Victoria: I do. I understand completely. Um, this trip is…about more than just tying up loose ends. You’re going back for the last time to say goodbye to the life that you lived there.


Lily: Johnny, come on! Are you ready? Johnny, come on! We have to get going! Do you have your shoes on? Hey. Okay. So, since your sister went to camp for her sleepover, I’m gonna take you to camp on my way to my meeting, alright? What’s wrong? Your stomach still hurt?

Johnny: Mm-hmm.

Lily: Okay. Uh, that’s okay. That’s okay. You can stay home today, alright? Hannah — she already said that she would be available in case we needed her, so I’ll just call her.

Johnny: Lily, can you stay home with me?


Elena: So nice of you to treat me to breakfast.

Nate: Well, you deserve it after the night you had.

Elena: I know. I can’t believe that second shift at the E.R. was so busy. Mm, it must have been the full moon.

Nate: Well, you should have called me. I would have gladly pitched in.

Lily: You finally got a day off. And after all the hours you’ve been working, I was not gonna interfere.

Imani: Well, good morning, you two.

Nate: Hey.

Imani: Nice running into you again. Lucky me — I saw that handsome face just last night, and now I get to see it again.


Devon: Hey, breakfast is almost ready. You want some orange juice?

Amanda: Uh, y-yeah, in a minute. The most amazing thing just happened. Imani called me with the best news. She has been up all night talking to Naya.

Devon: What’d she say?

Amanda: She said that she thinks that she finally got through to her. Naya is on her way back to Genoa City, ready to recant her confession.


Imani: Nate was so sweet last night. He really helped me with the dilemma that I was facing.

Elena: Mm. You must mean the partnership opportunity with Amanda. Yeah, he told me all about it. Sounds like a great opportunity.

Imani: [ Chuckles ]

Nate: Did you tell me that in confidence? I hope you don’t mind I shared it with, uh, Elena.

Imani: No, not at all. I wouldn’t have expected anything less.

Elena: You know, it’s so funny. The exact same thing happened to me a few weeks ago. I needed career advice from Nate. I got a job offer in Baltimore, and as tempting as it sounded, I kind of hoped that Nate would ask me to say. And do you know he did exactly that. He made it clear he wanted me to stay right here by his side.

Imani: Mm. Wow, what a sweet story.

Elena: Isn’t it, though?

Imani: Well, um, if you’ll excuse me, I need to put in my order. The café con leche is so good here. Don’t you think?


Victoria: So, are you sure that you’re feeling up to making this trip?

Ashland: Oh, of course I am. I mean, you may think a farewell tour is a bit self-indulgent…

Victoria: No, of course not, not at all. I mean, I understand how necessary and meaningful this trip is to you. And I’m — I’m very proud of you for facing reality head on. If it were me, I would be tempted to hide or escape.

Ashland: I don’t believe that for a second. I can honestly say I have never met a woman as gutsy as you. Come with me.

Victoria: To New York?

Ashland: Mm-hmm. I mean, you can meet the members of your new executive team in person, and then I can take you to all of my favorite places.

Victoria: Are you sure about that? I mean, wouldn’t you rather have someone with you that you’ve known longer? I wouldn’t be offended if you wanted to take an old friend…

Ashland: Okay, okay. Stop. I need you to hear this, that there is no one else I’d rather have with me than you. But I understand if you’re not comfortable going. It’s totally up to you.

Victoria: I would love to accompany you.

Ashland: Well, that’s exactly what I wanted to hear.


Sharon: Maybe it’s because I’m a trained professional that I can see things you can’t. And, believe me, I’m not in denial. I know more than most the things that Adam has done in his past.

Billy: And you still believe that he can be trusted?

Sharon: I’ve seen a legitimate change in him. Not so different from some of the changes that I’ve seen in you.

Billy: Oh, now, I’m gonna stop you right there and give you a chance to change that sentence because there is no way that you’re putting me in the same category as that guy.

Sharon: Okay. Well, then explain it to me. What — what makes you both so different? I mean, why are your mistakes forgivable and Adam’s are not?

Billy: Well, there’s plenty of reasons. For one, he’s unrepentant.

Sharon: That’s not true. He’s shown a lot of remorse, and he’s determined to change his ways — and not just in words. He’s made a lot of sacrifices, and he even risked his own personal freedom to save my daughter’s life — twice. Not once. Twice.

Billy: Well, there it is. That’s the difference between me and you. You look at him, and you see a man who saved your daughter’s life twice. I look at him as the man who took my daughter’s life from me forever. But I guess I can take some satisfaction in knowing he’s alone. It means the article that we did on him worked perfectly. Some people have heeded the warning and are steering clear. Maybe one day you can do the same. There are better ways to spend your time and energy than defending that snake.


Devon: Have you considered the possibility at all that Naya’s just saying the things to Imani that she wants to hear?

Amanda: Oh, of course. And that’s why I won’t sleep easy until these charges are officially dropped. But Imani is pretty convinced that she got through to our mother.

Devon: I bet she was shocked when she heard that recording of Sutton.

Amanda: You know, I don’t even think that that will convince Naya that Sutton killed my father, especially since he didn’t flat out confess.

Devon: Yeah, but it was close, though.

Amanda: I — I do understand why this is so hard for Naya, though. You know, she’s idolized her father for so long. She built her whole life around his career and his reputation. I mean, Naya and Imani worked on every one of his campaigns, one after the next after the next —

Devon: Well, I — I do have to give credit to Imani for even breaking free of this mind-set, you know? And she definitely wouldn’t have been able to do it without you and your influence.

Amanda: And that’s why I feel really responsible for my little sister. I need to make sure that she has some strong footing beneath her when she gets out of this.

Devon: Hey, look who woke up. Slept so long, you missed breakfast. It’s gone.

Moses: Aw, man.

Devon: I’m just playing. There’s more food in the kitchen for you.

Moses: Got me. Got me. Hey, I just — thanks again for yesterday. That was really cool of you to introduce Faith to TigirLily.

Devon: Oh, yeah.

Moses: God, did you see the look on her face? That was so awesome.

Devon: You know, I’ve, um — I’ve been trying to tell him that he has the coolest brother in the world, and I think he’s finally realizing it.

Amanda: Finally.

[ Laughter ]


Billy: All alone, I see. You know, I heard Chelsea left town and took your son with her. I believe she did the right thing. I mean, she just poisoned someone and was just released from a mental facility, but I do think that your boy is safer with her than he is with you — or his grandfather.

Adam: Why are you obsessing about my family’s whereabouts? Don’t you have enough things to do to keep ChancComm afloat? Or is, uh, Lily doing all the hard work so you can continue to churn out that tabloid trash?

Billy: ChancComm’s in a great place, actually, thanks to our amazing team…and due to the fact that you decided not to weaponize Newman Media and point it directly at us.

Adam: Gee, I wonder where my thank-you card is.

Billy: Mm.

Adam: I guess it got lost in the mail.

Billy: Yeah. You’re not gonna get a thank-you card because I just realized why you’re playing the good guy, and it has nothing to do with me or ChancComm.

Adam: Is that so?

Billy: All the things you’ve done the last few months — donating a kidney, backing off ChancComm, sitting in this café right here to have your coffee and act all sad and alone — that’s you worming your way back into Sharon’s life, trying to convince her that you’re a changed man.

Adam: And of course you know better.

Billy: I do know that if you were really trying to be a good person, that would mean putting someone else’s feelings in front of yours. That would mean realizing that Sharon is better off without you.

Adam: If you say so.

Billy: I do say so. ‘Cause she’s in a good place. She’s got a good husband that adores her. She’s happy. Now, if you could just get away from this sick obsession, maybe do the right thing and actually give a damn about her… you’d leave her alone.

Adam: It is really fascinating how your mind works. It couldn’t be that I’m just sitting here having coffee, like you. No, you have to read an ulterior motive into it because if all these other people are right and I have turned over a new leaf, how would you continue to justify your own vendetta and obsession?

Billy: You think you’re an innocent victim, you’re misunderstood. Unfortunately, that crap works on Sharon.


[ Door opens ]

Devon: So, you’ll let me know how everything goes with Naya?

Amanda: Yeah, of course.

Devon: I’ll see you later, alright?

[ Door closes ]

Devon: Oh, man. Dang, you made that food disappear. Sheesh.

Moses: Hey, man, I’m a growing boy.

Devon: I can see that. A well-connected growing boy.

Moses: Well, thanks to you, man. You really hooked it up with that special appearance by Kendra and Krista.

Devon: Oh, well, I knew it was a special occasion ’cause Faith means a lot to you.

Moses: Yeah. I’ll never forget the look on her face, yeah. You know, TigirLily’s music — it really speaks to her.

Devon: That’s the beautiful thing about music, is that it can connect to people on an emotional level.

Moses: Kind of like what you said about listening to dad’s favorite music.

Devon: Yeah.

Moses: I feel closer to him, you know, like I can understand him a little bit better.

Devon: When you know what moves somebody, that’s like an open window right to their soul.

Moses: I never thought about music like that before.

Devon: Well, yeah, and all art, really, no matter what it is. It’s just about seeing the world from another person’s perspective.

Moses: Yeah. I get it. Kind of like empathy.

Devon: That’s it. Exactly.

Moses: Deep. Well, sorry I haven’t been here to, you know, talk about this with you more, you know, so you can drop some more knowledge.

Devon: Oh, gosh. Come on. Don’t be sorry, man. You’ve been busy living your life. You got your volunteer work at the hospital, your internship at AskMDNow. Getting a real taste of what being a doctor’s like. What’s wrong? What’s that face for?


Johnny: I win!

Lily: What? Again!? Are you cheating? Oh, my gosh! Okay, you know what? That’s it. I’m gonna win this time.

Johnny: Lily, you know my mom’s friend Ashland?

Lily: Yeah. I do. I do. I know that he’s gonna live at your house for a little while, right?

Johnny: Yeah. Daddy says he’s sick, but not like me.

Lily: That’s true. He’s not sick like you. He, um — he’s not contagious at all, and no one in your family will get it.

Johnny: Will he ever get better?

Lily: Um…you know, I know that the doctors are doing everything that they can. I know your mommy really likes him and wants him to get better. And, listen, anytime you have questions like this, you can always talk to your mom and your dad — and me, too. Okay?

Johnny: I hope you and Daddy always stay together.


Imani: Well, it’s always good to see you, Nate.

Nate: You too. Hey, by the way, is everything okay? You left so suddenly last night after you got that call. I thought it might have had to do with your mother’s case.

Imani: Well, I’m hoping after today there won’t even be a case against my mother anymore. She was the one who called. She was in a panic about what she should do. And fortunately, I was able to persuade her that she was making a huge mistake taking the blame for Richard’s death. And now she’s agreed to officially recant her confession.

Nate: Ah. Congrats on getting her to come around. I know how tough it can be as a doctor to get someone to follow advice, even when it’s absolutely in their own best interest.

Imani: Well, maybe when you get to know me better, you’ll learn that I can be very persuasive when I want to be.

[ Cellphone pings ]

Imani: Oh, that’s Amanda. She’s asking me to head to the courthouse. Well, I have to run, but it was really good seeing you.

Nate: You too. [ Chuckles ] What?

Elena: [ Chuckles ] You mean to tell me you haven’t noticed Imani hitting on you?

Nate: I think that’s overstating it. She’s a little flirtatious.

Elena: [ Laughs ] A little?

Nate: [ Scoffs ] I’m already taken. What does it even matter? [ Chuckles ]

Elena: Oh, really? Tell me more.

Nate: You know, I would love to, but you’ve had such a long night. I need to get you home to bed.

Elena: Well, maybe I just got a second wind.

Nate: Then you don’t want to go home to bed?

Elena: Oh, no. I definitely do.


Sharon: Glad you didn’t let Billy get to you.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] He was clearly itching for a fight, but I wasn’t gonna give him the satisfaction.

Sharon: Yeah, he spoke to me first before coming out here. He seriously doubts that the changes you’re making are real. So I assumed he said as much to you.

Adam: Oh, he didn’t stop there. He accused me of putting on an act, specifically for you.

Sharon: [ Sighs ] Why would anyone think that I would be so gullible? You know, I’m the only person who was right about you. I knew that you didn’t poison Rey. And yet some people want to carry on treating me like I don’t know what I’m talking about.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Well, don’t take it too personally. I am the one that nobody trusts. Well, I shouldn’t say nobody. Nick is being open-minded. Faith has come a long way. And Victor has stood by my side.

Sharon: See? You have made a lot of progress.

Adam: Look, I won’t deny that it is important to me that you believe in me and you see how hard I’m trying to change. But it’s not like Billy said. I’m not trying to lure you back. Like you said, you could see right through that. Besides, it was never my better angel that drew you to me.

Sharon: What do you mean by that?

Adam: Am I wrong? I always thought it was my, uh, wilder side that you found more compelling.

Sharon: Um… I don’t know where you would get an idea like that. I mean, after all the time and energy I spent trying to help you become healthy and become the person you want to be, who you were meant to be — that’s — that’s more what was pulling me in.

Adam: Sure. Yeah. Yeah. I see your point. I mean, look at who you’re with now. As far as I can tell, I don’t think Rey even has a dark side. So, whatever thing you had for bad boys in the past, you are clearly over it.

Sharon: Yeah. All I ever wanted was to be with the guy in the white hat. [ Sighs ]


Victoria: I have to run. There’s a few things that I need to wrap up at the office if we’re gonna be flying out to New York tonight.

Ashland: Well, I’ll take care of all the travel arrangements. Um, my office will handle everything.

Victoria: Okay, but just make sure you take it easy, too, alright? You’re gonna need your strength. I’ll see you later.

Ashland: [ Exhales heavily ] Nope


Moses: No, everything’s cool.

Devon: Yeah?

Moses: Really. Um, I’m just, uh, grateful for all the opportunities.

Devon: I hear a big old “but” on the end of that. Are you just — are you not feeling medicine anymore? ‘Cause it’s fine if you’re not. That’s, you know — the reason that you have all these opportunities is to figure out if you would enjoy being a doctor. And if you’re not excited about it anymore or if it depresses you, then that’s fine. You’re not obligated to feel any way. That’s the point of this experiment, is to figure it out.

Moses: Yeah, it’s — it’s not really any of that. It’s just different from what I thought it was gonna be like.

Devon: Okay. Does this have anything to do with when Nate had his allergic reaction and you felt helpless about it?

Moses: Yeah. I mean, that’s part of it, but only part. I’ve seen what it’s like to be a doctor, and part of me just feels like I’m not cut out for it.

Devon: You know, like I said, that’s fine. If it turns out that a career in medicine isn’t for you, there’s nothing wrong with that. You’re not letting anybody down. I’m just happy that you’re even asking the question of what you want to do at this age.

Moses: Yeah. And lately I’ve been thinking about maybe checking out some other possibilities.

Devon: Oh, really? Like what?


Adam: There she is — the woman of the week. I hope, uh, Nikki passed along my congratulations.

Victoria: Yes, she did. I should congratulate you, too.

Adam: I cannot imagine what for.

Victoria: With Dad out of town, you have a little breathing room to run Newman Media the way that you see fit, without him hovering over your shoulder. You should enjoy it while you can.

Adam: Mm. Well, unlike you, I enjoy working with our father. I really value his expertise.

Victoria: Oh, I’m sure that he values having someone around to lap it up.

Adam: You clearly enjoy flying solo. I mean, that is why you picked a business partner that you can get rid of in a few months. And exploiting that man’s condition that way was a bit ghoulish. But I got to hand it to you. It was extremely advantageous for Newman Enterprises.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Naturally, that’s the way you would see it.

Adam: And how everybody else would see it, if I, the monster of Genoa City, had done the same thing. They could call me predatory and worse. But you are sweet, delightful Victoria, so you get to ride in like the angel of mercy and save Ashland in his last days, no matter how masterfully you manipulated your way into Locke’s company.

Victoria: Ashland has never been taken advantage of by anyone. This has been a business deal, a very damn good business deal. The scenario that you’re presenting right now is preposterous.

Adam: Mm. Well, you don’t have to get defensive. I’m not criticizing. I’m just pointing out the irony. You’ve turned out a lot more like Dad than I think you would care to admit, a lot more than I ever thought you would.

Victoria: You know, you have always underestimated me. And that’s foolish because I’m the one that you should fear the most.

Adam: I don’t want to play against you. I have no interest in fighting with you anymore.

Victoria: Well, it’s a little late for that, don’t you think? You’ve provoked me, you’ve taunted me, you framed me. But most of all, you underestimated me — when I’m the one that you should fear the most.

Adam: Oh. So, I can get under your skin. That’s good to know.


Michael: All here. Thank you. Wow, what a surprise seeing you all here. Amanda, Imani, Mrs. Benedict.

Imani: Mom, let’s sit. I’ll buy you a drink.

Naya: Alright.

Michael: Look, I’m getting a sense of why it was so difficult for your mother to come forward and admit that her confession was false. When I spoke to her, it actually seemed like she felt guilty, like she had let Sutton down and not the other way around.

Amanda: Yeah, I — I think that it’s too painful for her to even admit to herself how thoroughly Sutton has betrayed his own family.

Michael: I don’t think I have to tell you this, but you know it would be helpful if Naya cooperated with the newly reopened investigation into Sutton.

Amanda: Yes, I will keep working on that, Michael.

Michael: Thank you. I’ll leave that in your hands for now. See you later?

Amanda: Mm-hmm.

Michael: Okay.

Imani: I ordered you a drink.

Amanda: Thank you.

Naya: Why were you talking to him? You’re not planning to help him go after Sutton, are you?

Amanda: I’m gonna do what I can to get justice for my father. That is the least that I owe him. And whether you would like to face it or not, you owe him the same thing.

Elena: Sharon. Hey. Mind if I grab an iced tea?

Sharon: Just one?

Elena: Yeah.

Sharon: I saw Nate go upstairs with you earlier.

Elena: Ah. Yeah. He’s gone already, but he will be back soon.

Sharon: I’m so glad that things are working out between you two.

Elena: Yeah, I am, too. But how are you? How are you and Rey? When I talked to Lola, she said you guys had a great time in Miami.

Sharon: Uh, yes. Yeah, we did. We had a great time.

Elena: [ Chuckles ] Has Rey had any lingering side effects from the thallium poisoning?

Sharon: Um, no. He’s completely recovered. In fact, he felt so well, he actually went back to work right away, and I think he’s working too much.

Elena: That’s great.

Sharon: His current assignment is escorting Chelsea to see her mother in Minnesota.

Elena: Wait. What?! He was assigned to escort the woman who tried to kill him?


Billy: Those flowers were supposed to be a surprise for when you got home.

Lily: [ Chuckles ]

Billy: I didn’t expect anyone to be here.

Lily: Yeah, well, Johnny’s poor little tummy was still hurting him, so maybe it is a bug, but I think that maybe your theory is right and he just needs a little extra nurturing during this time.

Billy: Well, either way, your motherly instincts were firing on all cylinders.

Lily: Well, I just did what my mom used to do for me when I had an upset stomach, which was crazy eights and ginger tea.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Thank you for being so sweet to my boy. I know you had a busy morning. You could have just called Hannah.

Lily: Well, I was going to, but Johnny asked me if I could stay with him, and I couldn’t say no to that adorable little face.

Billy: Mm, he gets that from me.

Lily: [ Laughs ] But, no, I’m glad that we had some one-on-one time. And we had fun. You know what he told me?

Billy: Oh, I could only imagine.

Lily: That he hopes that you and I stay together forever.

Billy: Did he?

Lily: Yeah.

Billy: Like father, like son. I’m with him. You’re the best.

Lily: But he did also bring up Ashland and his illness. So, I know that you and Victoria don’t want to scare them too much by telling them a lot, but I do think that he’s pretty intuitive and knows something serious is going on.

Billy: Yeah. Okay. Well, thanks for the heads-up. I’ll talk to Victoria and make sure that we are on the same page about how to handle that. Death and dying — never a fun conversation, especially not for a kid when they’re so full of life. It’s a hard concept to grasp. But we don’t have a choice. We have to figure out how to tell him.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Victoria: Ashland? It’s me! I left — Ashland? Ashland!


Sharon: So, because Chelsea’s mother is in the hospital, Michael Baldwin decided that it would be okay for her to go and visit her mom, only with the accompaniment of a law-enforcement officer. And for some reason, he determined that that person should be Rey.

Elena: And Rey doesn’t have a problem with this at all?

Sharon: Rey doesn’t hold a grudge against her. Yeah, a few days before he left, I could tell that he felt sorry for her. And then when he calls, he really seems like he’s impressed with the progress she’s made.

Elena: I mean, I suppose that’s a good thing.

Sharon: I think he just likes making the point that Chelsea’s doing better because she got away from Adam. He still wants to lay the ultimate blame for everything that happened at Adam’s feet, and that’s just so…unfair.

Elena: Well, I guess considering he is the victim, he gets to decide who he wants to hold responsible.

Sharon: I guess. You know, the irony is, I’m the one who encouraged Adam to let Chelsea go out of town with Connor, mostly so that I just didn’t have to think about her anymore. But now I’m getting constant updates on her day-to-day progress.

Elena: Ugh. Ugh. Well, hopefully this assignment will be over soon and Rey will be back home to you.

Sharon: I so can’t wait for that to happen.

Elena: [ Sighs ] Thanks for the tea.

Sharon: Sure.

Elena: Bye.


Devon: Thanks for coming, man. You should take a seat.

Nate: Of course. [ Sighs ] What’s up?

Devon: So, Moses has been confiding in me. And he was talking about making some changes to his volunteer schedule.

Nate: Yeah? It’s pretty tight now. I’m not sure he can fit anything else in.

Devon: Well, that’s the thing. It’s not about adding more. He wants to cut back on some of his hours at the hospital so he can spend time in the recording studio with me ’cause he’s interested in seeing how it all works.

Nate: Hold up. Uh, I’m confused. I thought Moses was here to learn about being a doctor.

Moses: Yeah, that was the plan, but I’ve been having second thoughts. And it’s not that I don’t want to be a doctor. I just thought it might be worth checking out some other options, too.

Nate: Was this your idea?

Devon: No, it definitely wasn’t my idea. We were just talking about it earlier, and he brought it up. And I said we should get your opinion.

Moses: I don’t want to upset you.

Nate: I’m — you’re not — I’m just surprised. You know, give me, um — give me some time to think about this, and then we’ll talk.


Naya: Look, I’m telling you I want nothing to do with any investigation into Sutton. I mean, as it is, I’m conflicted about recanting my confession. That alone will make people think that my father is guilty of murder and that I only confessed to protect him.

Amanda: Didn’t you? I mean, let me ask you something, Naya. Why would Sutton pressure you into confessing if he wasn’t guilty?

Naya: We both thought that I might get a lighter sentence and that it would be a lot easier for me to endure than it would be for him.

Amanda: Easier? Giving up your freedom, your family, your friends, your reputation? You thought that that would be easier?

Imani: Mom, you have to see how self-serving and wrong that is. For him to put that kind of pressure on you is just unconscionable.

Naya: I agree. And that’s why I finally admitted that my confession was false. But that doesn’t mean that I will ever believe that my father is capable of murder. So, you can push all you want. But I will do nothing to implicate my father.


Ashland: Oh, thank you.

Victoria: I wish you would let me call an ambulance. What if you had a heart attack?

Ashland: No, no, no, no, no. It was nothing like that. I remember that feeling. I know the difference. Thank you.

Victoria: Still, you should get checked out.

Ashland: I refuse to spend what time I have left sitting in a damn hospital getting prodded and poked and dealing with doctors day and night. I’m so sorry. It must have been frightening coming home and finding me like this. I will get some anxiety medication. I’m pretty sure that that’s all it is. I’ve had anxiety attacks in the past when I’ve been under a great deal of pressure, so…

Victoria: Yes, I know. You’ve certainly been dealing with a lot the past few weeks.

Ashland: I’m more stressed than ever before, figuring out how to let go of all the things that have been the focus of my entire life.

Victoria: I’m sure.

Ashland: I’m pretty certain that these recent attacks are more connected to the pressure of the situation than the actual illness, so don’t worry. I’m not on my way out just now.

Victoria: I know you lived for your company, and I — I was just trying to help alleviate some of the pressure and the stress and take that off of your plate. But I feel like maybe it’s had the opposite effect. Do you think this merger was a mistake? Should we not have done it?


Adam: [ Breathes deeply ]

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Victor: Yeah, son?

Adam: Dad. How, uh — how’s your trip?

Victor: Good. You know, uneventful.

Adam: What, uh, about the weather?

Victor: Beautiful weather. You know, it’s a beautiful city, great to walk around in. So, why are you calling? Something happened or what?

Adam: Uh, no worries. Everything is, uh, fine here.

Victor: You just called to say hello?

Adam: I had an interesting encounter with Victoria today. It gave me an idea that I wanted to run past you.

Victor: Huh.


Next week on “the young and the restless”…

Adam: Chloe Mitchell reporting for duty.

Adam: Welcome to your first day at Newman Media.

Nikki: Are you truly happy here in Milan or simply resigned?

Sally: Given the lovely evening that we had and feeling so connected, where do we go from here?

Mariah: Look, as much fun as this stay has been, me and this baby would like to get out of here now, please.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Wyatt: What are you keeping from me?

Quinn: Nothing.

Wyatt: Mom?

Quinn: Nothing.

Flo: I–I can leave if you two rather would just talk on your own.

Quinn: No, no, no. You stay here because I’m the one who’s gonna be leaving. So–

Wyatt: Mom, if you need my help with something, you have to talk to me.

Quinn: Uh, no. No. Just drop it. Okay. I’m not keeping anything. There are no secrets. If you haven’t realized, all the secrets have been exposed recently.

Wyatt: Okay. Fine. Well, if you need me, I’m here for you.

Quinn: Thank you very much, sweetheart. But all I need to do now is–is go because somebody is waiting for me. So–

Flo: Well, you don’t want to keep a lawyer waiting. I hear they charge by the minute.

Quinn: Yes.

Flo: Assuming you’re trying to go talk to someone about your divorce.

Quinn: I am. I am. This is about my future. So, okay. Bye.


[ Door slams ]

Carter: Hey.

Brooke: Something wrong?

Carter: No. I’m just on my way to a meeting, unless you need me.

Ridge: Uh, no, there’s a couple things, but we can deal with that later.

Carter: Okay. I won’t be long.

Ridge: Hey, Carter. Were you as surprised as I was that Dad went along with your suggestion?

Carter: No, no. It, uh, makes sense, financially.

Brooke: Oh, what suggestion are you talking about?

Ridge: We’re gonna keep Quinn’s jewelry line.

Brooke: What?

Ridge: Carter’s recommendation and it does make sense, financially. It really does. But it means more paperwork for you.

Carter: More paperwork?

Ridge: Yeah. It’s a bitter divorce. She’s still gonna be a part of the company, can’t be easy.

Carter: Nothing that I can’t handle. So, don’t worry. I’ll take care of everything in regards to Quinn. See you soon.


[ Door slams ]

Wyatt: No, absolutely not. Those aren’t the terms that we agreed upon and you’re not changing them now. Well, I could get my father on the phone, but we both know how that would go. Oh, very good. That’s exactly what I thought you’d say. No, no, no, no, no. Thank you. Sorry. Uh, didn’t mean for that to take so long.

Flo: It’s no problem. You know I always like watching my sexy fiancé in his business mode.

Wyatt: It was kind of sexy, huh? Holding people to contracts?

Flo: Oh, it’s so sexy.

Wyatt: Do you want me to yell at somebody else?

Flo: Maybe.

Wyatt: Yeah?

Flo: Would you really have gotten Bill involved?

Wyatt: No, no. I’m not that cruel. [ Clears throat ] But I just–I am thankful to know that’s an option again. I can’t tell you how relieved I am to have my dad and my brother out of jail.

Flo: Yeah. It must feel really good not to worry about them anymore.

Wyatt: Now I can focus all of my concern and worry on my mom.


Brooke: Is this some kind of joke? Quinn really is still a part of the company?

Ridge: All right. Before you get all riled up–

Brooke: Oh, this is terrible.

Ridge: It’s not terrible. It makes sense, financially. The line makes us money.

Brooke: Well, I could still make us money with a different designer.

Ridge: Finding a different designer and starting over takes a long time.

Brooke: Oh, gosh. I guess I was really naive thinking we got rid of Quinn for good.

Ridge: We’re almost there, but…

Brooke: But–but what? Carter spoke up? Arguing to keep the line? To keep Quinn?

Ridge: What are you saying?


Carter: Hey.

Quinn: Hey. Hey, let me in before anybody sees me.

Carter: Well, thank you for coming.

Quinn: [ Sighs ] I shouldn’t be here, especially if Eric finds out you’re still in contact with me.

Carter: Where did you park?

Quinn: Two blocks down.

Carter: That’s good. Smart.

Quinn: It’s not smart to be here and it is not smart to be alone with you, Carter.


Flo: I’m sure you noticed this too, but your mom was acting weird, right? Like, weirder than usual?

Wyatt: Oh, totally very weird. Like, this whole divorce is probably killing her inside. She built her whole life around Eric and their marriage.

Flo: Or so we thought. And then, Carter comes around and… you know what? Good for her. I mean, I’m–I’m– I’m just saying. It–like, he’s smart, he’s gorgeous, he’s successful and gorgeous. I mean that smile and those arms. Did I mention he’s gorgeous?

Wyatt: No.

Flo: I mean, he’s totally not my type, like, at all, but I could see how she could fall for him and have a connection.

Wyatt: Right, because of how gorgeous he is?

Flo: Is he? I didn’t notice. I love you.


Brooke: I don’t wanna second-guess Carter’s reasoning.

Ridge: But you are.

Brooke: Okay. Look, Eric is trying to divorce Quinn. He’s trying to disassociate himself from her and his lawyer should advise him to get rid of the line. Instead, Carter is encouraging Eric to keep it. I mean, that sounds kind of strange, don’t you think?

Ridge: Carter promised to stay away from Quinn. That’s why he still has a job. And his job at this company is to make sure we make money and the jewelry line makes money.

Brooke: Yeah. And I guess you’re right. It is a money maker. It’s just disappointing. After everything that Quinn has done, I was really looking forward to seeing Eric kicking her to the curb.


Quinn: We already said our goodbyes. We agreed we weren’t gonna see each other anymore.

Carter: I know, but something happened, something I need to tell you about.

Quinn: Okay.

Carter: Okay. So, you know how Eric called, he wanted to see me?

Quinn: Yeah. He–he knows we’re still seeing each other. And–and even though we’re not, we agree we weren’t going to, so you need to find a way to make sure he understands

Carter: It’s fine. It’s fine. It’s fine. It’s fine. He doesn’t suspect a thing. That’s not what we… talked about. Um, hmm, we, um– we went over the divorce, the, uh, professional and personal details and he said he wanted to end the jewelry line.

Quinn: Ugh. You know, Wyatt was speculating about that. He–he–he–he said– I–I mean, I–I just– does Eric despise me that much that he would throw away years and years of my work? I mean, my art, my contribution to Forrester Creations, it…

Carter: Yeah. I know. I know. You worked so hard. It’s a part of you, it’s a part of Forrester, and I couldn’t let him get rid of it. Not without a fight. One of the advantages of being a lawyer is that I’m good at building a case.

Quinn: What are you saying?

Carter: I’m saying that your line isn’t going anywhere. I convinced Eric to keep it.


Wyatt: So, am I getting this right? My future wife is–is suggesting that if an attractive, gorgeous-armed man looks her way, it’s okay?

Flo: No, no, no, no, no, no, that’s–that’s not what I’m saying. I am–I am not condoning what your mother did at all. Betraying her marriage like that and hurting Eric is very wrong.

Wyatt: Okay. Good.

Flo: But knowing that Eric was turning her down and stopped touching her, I guess part of me kind of understands it. I mean, if–if Eric wasn’t making her feel loved and wanted and Carter was– everyone deserves to feel desired. It’s a basic human need.

Wyatt: Well, it’s a need I hope I’m fulfilling.

Flo: Oh. You for sure are.

Wyatt: [ Chuckles ]

Flo: I feel very grateful to have you in my life. What we have is extremely special and… I’m lucky to have found you again.

Wyatt: [ Chuckles ] So, 20 years from now…

Flo: Uh-hmm.

Wyatt: …Right? When–when–when everything I say just bores you, my jokes don’t land…

Flo: Uh-hmm.

Wyatt: …And this beefcake gorgeous lawyer starts chatting you up–

Flo: I will thank him very much for his legal advice and I will come right home to you.

Wyatt: Your inseparable husband?

Flo: You probably will be, right?

Wyatt: What?

Flo: [ Laughs ] But I will love you all the more for it. You’re more gorgeous.

Wyatt: Thank you. I–I was waiting for you to say that. And I’ve been working out, you know. These arms are–

Flo: I know.

Wyatt: They’re not, uh–

Flo: They’re not bad.

Wyatt: They’re not Carter’s, I guess. Carter.


Brooke: So Quinn will be working completely off-site?

Ridge: Yup. Not allowed in the building.

Brooke: Okay. Well, that’s one thing to be grateful for.

Ridge: That’s hurtful. You’re married to this and you only have one thing to be grateful for? Well, I guess I got to try a little harder.

Brooke: Come on. You know what I’m talking about. This whole Quinn mess.

Ridge: Yeah.

Brooke: I prefer her to be out of our lives for good, but I guess as long as she’s banned from the building, that’ll be okay. I’m just glad that Carter agreed to that.

Ridge: So, you’re gonna be okay with it?

Brooke: Oh.

Ridge: All right. I’m gonna tell you what I told Carter and what I told my dad. This whole thing is awful. What happened to my dad and where he is now, it’s a really hard thing to deal with. But you know what? In a way, Carter did us all a favor. He showed this family. He showed everybody who Quinn really is.


Quinn: You’re serious? You talked Eric into keeping my line?

Carter: Uh-hmm. You’d have to work remotely, but…

Quinn: [ Scoffs ]

Carter: …It’s profitable. Always has been. I just had to remind him of that and tell him to put his emotions aside and make the best decision for Forrester.

Quinn: Thank you.

Carter: Of course.

Quinn: And thank you so much… ugh, was that wise, Carter?

Carter: For the company? Yeah.

Quinn: No. Was it wise for you? I mean, Eric is–is– is gonna wonder why you are defending me. He’s gonna question your motives. You have to be careful. I don’t want you to lose your job. You–you–you’ve built an amazing career at Forrester and–and–and I don’t want that to go away because of me. I’m not gonna allow that. I–I’m not worth that. I–

Carter: Stop, stop, stop. What did I tell you?

Quinn: You don’t want me saying that.

Carter: Never again because you are worth it, Quinn. You are.


Brooke: And that’s an odd way to put it, but you’re right. I mean, we all tried to warn Eric about that relationship from the very beginning. He was just blinded.

Ridge: Even when no one showed up at his wedding. Didn’t see it, didn’t wanna see it.

Brooke: Well, you’d get glimpses sometimes of her craziness and her selfishness. But he always found ways to forgive her but not now. I guess you’re right. We do owe Carter thanks. He was able to do what none of us could do. There’s no way that Eric’s gonna let Quinn worm her way back into his heart.

Ridge: No.

Brooke: Not after all of the damage she’s done, her terrible stunts. She’s gonna be alone, alone for the rest of her life. That woman is incapable of loving anybody but herself.

Ridge: Hi.

Brooke: Hey.


Quinn: [ Moans ] You have no idea how much I wanna keep kissing you right now.

Carter: I think I do. I think I have a good idea.

Quinn: [ Groans ]

Carter: It’s safe, Quinn. We’re alone.

Quinn: No, it’s not safe because one kiss is going to lead to another, and to another. We both know what’s gonna happen. We have to be strong. We have to avoid this… desire and temptation. I’m trying to protect you.

Carter: And I’m thankful. I am. Quinn, this is a lot harder than I thought it would be to forget about you, to forget about our connection.

Quinn: I know it’s hard, but we have to do this. You have to forget about me. There’s no other choice.

Carter: And what if I can’t?

Quinn: You have to.

Carter: You’re right.

Quinn: I know. I’m always right.

Carter: Uh-huh.

Quinn: You have a huge future at Forrester Creations. I’m not gonna let you ruin that. I mean, look, they need you there. Eric was gonna–he was just gonna throw away my jewelry line which would have been a huge financial loss to them, but you talked them out of it. See? And thank you, by the way. You know that line is– it’s like a second child to me.

Carter: Yeah. That’s why I fought so hard. I was determined to change his mind.

Quinn: [ Sighs ] Carter, Carter. I am so bad at expressing emotion, you know. I mean, especially vulnerable ones. I’m really good with anger and cynicism. I mean, I have got those down pat, but gratitude and affection is just–it’s not–it’s not in my wheelhouse. But with you… the way you look at me with those eyes, your calming touch and your sweet voice. You have to know the effect that you have on me. And I–I–I’ve walked into every relationship in my life ready for battle. You know, locked and loaded. I–I–I had my– my fists up, my chin up. But with you, I just– I just wanna– I just wanna lay down my sword and feel so free to be me. Oh. Ugh. Ugh. I’m going on. I’m going on and on about emotions. Oh, it must be–oh, you–you must be grossed out. I’m sorry.

Carter: You see me going anywhere? I’m where I wanna be… right here… with you. You may think you don’t show emotions when with everything you said, I’ve known it. I’ve seen it in your looks, in your smile, when we’re alone, wrapped in each other’s arms. And I feel… the same exact way. And I’ve never felt this way before. Is it love? Is it lust?

Quinn: I think it’s just us. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Quinn: We can’t keep doing this.

Carter: I know.

Quinn: Or this.

Carter: Mmm-hmm. Nope.

Quinn: Or this. Okay. Why is it… every time I try to head for the door, I keep ending up in a different position?


Finn: Should I just do a diaper run?

Steffy: No, no, we had plenty. I just don’t know what I did with it, like what–what– where is my brain? Honestly, where is my– diapers are behind the couch. Diapers are behind the couch.

Finn: You got them.

Steffy: Oh.

Finn: Nice.

Steffy: Oh, my goodness.

Finn: As you can see, we’re, uh, we’re– we’re very organized.


Finn: Don’t listen to her. Steffy’s on top of everything. We’re just running low on, um, what’s it called? Uh, sleep.

Steffy: Sleep. Sleep. Yeah.


Brooke: I’m just curious. What would you think of me as your co-CEO?

Ridge: What–what would i think of you taking a job that’s already taken by someone else?


Eric: Yeah. Yeah, he’s my lawyer. I wanna get going on this and I wanna get him in here.

Brooke: Oh, honey, leave him alone.

Ridge: Uh, there’s–there’s a dress over there back at the couch and I don’t think it fits him.

Carter: Oh, Ridge, that’s, um, not mine.


Eric: Well, that, uh– that was a little awkward.

Ridge: I guess we know what kind of workout Carter was doing.

Recap written by Suzanne

After the magazine mistakenly names Brooke as Ridge’s co-CEO, he’s worried that Steffy will be upset. Brooke wonders if perhaps she could be his co-CEO instead of Steffy. Ridge wonders what she means, so she suggests that she step in until Steffy is back full time. At Carter’s place, he and Quinn keep trying to say goodbye to each other, but they can’t. They keep having sex instead. Meanwhile, Eric wonders why Carter hasn’t come into the office again so he can get started on his divorce. He calls Carter with a video chat. Quinn jumps out of the way just in time so that Eric can’t see her, but Ridge sees that there’s a dress on the sofa behind Carter. Carter tells Eric that he’s been working out but that he’ll be in the office soon. Quinn feels bad that she’s risking Carter’s job and ruining his life, but he insists that she’s not.

Paris visits Steffy to talk about the Forrester Foundation. Things are in a bit of disarray because of the baby. Paris brought them some fish tacos, which they’re very grateful for. Paris suggests that Finn serve on the Foundation’s advisory committee (because of his history treating addiction). Steffy and Finn like the idea. When the baby cries, Paris rocks him and sings him a lullaby until he goes back to sleep. They’re impressed with everything Paris has done.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Sutton: This is sutton.

Victor: Hey, sutton. Have you had a chance to review my proposal?

Sutton: Well, I have been wondering whether or not you can be trusted.

Victor: This is a straightforward deal — quid pro quo, alright? I give you
amanda’s letter from her father, the content of which could lead to your
downfall.

Sutton: And in return?

Victor: In return, you do me a favor one day without fail. The clock is
ticking.

[ Cellphone vibrates ]

Adam: Talking to anyone interesting?

Victor: Uh, no, just talked to an old friend.

Adam: I wanted to brainstorm some ideas about newman media’s marketing
strategy, if you have time.

Victor: Would you mind if we did that another day? I just have too many
things on my mind right now, okay?

Nikki: Everything alright?

Adam: [ Sighs ] He, um — he seems preoccupied. You have any idea what’s
going on?

Nikki: No, I don’T. Have you heard from chelsea?

Adam: Yeah, I got an update from her a little while ago. Anita is on the mend
— slowly.

Nikki: I suppose the better question is, how is connor?

Adam: He’s happy to be having all this time alone with his mother. He’s a
little curious why rey is tagging along, but I told him, since I couldn’t be
there, I was sending somebody I trusted.

Nikki: Not far from the truth.

Adam: Yeah. I’m actually glad rey is there. It’s probably safer for everyone.

Nikki: My thoughts exactly.

Adam: You know, you don’t have to do this whole nice conversation thing every
time we run into each other. I know what you think of me.

Nikki: I might surprise you.

Devon: Hey, why don’t you try and sit down?

Amanda: No, I can’T.

Devon: Will you do it for me at least? ‘Cause you’ve said yourself, these
things take time.

Amanda: For you.

Devon: Thanks.

Amanda: I just… victor should’ve met with sutton by now. I need an update.
I need something. How can you be so calm?

Devon: Because I know victor newman, and I know if he says he’s gonna do
something, he’s gonna do it. Just have to be patient.

Amanda: No, I can’T. I can’t wait any longer, okay? I just — I need
something. I need to — I need to figure out what is happening right now. I —

Devon: Just —

[ Knock on door ]

Imani: We’ve got a problem.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Abby: I just got a text from mariah.

Tessa: She texted — mariah.

Sharon: I just got a text from her, also.

Abby: We should compare the messages that she sent us.

Sharon: Yeah, maybe we can figure out what’s going on. (Vo) imagine a visibly
healthier pet in 28 days.

Abby: Mariah’s text to me says, “I was feeling overwhelmed with everyone’s
constant concern about my health.”

Tessa: Okay, her text to me says, “extending my exploratory business trip.
Just needed a break.”

Sharon: Well, her message to me says, “I had to get away from feeling
smothered. I’m sorry for keeping everyone guessing.”

Abby: Okay, well, at least the lines of communication are open and she’s
being honest. That’s good.

Tessa: Yeah, and she says that she just needs space. “Love, mariah.”

Abby: Well, there’s more to the message that she sent me. She says that she
promises that she’ll be back before our next doctor’s appointment, that she’s
doing fine and she’s taking good care of herself and the baby. And she said,
“your child isn’t giving me too much grief yet.”

[ Laughs ]

Sharon: Well, that’s a relief.

Abby: I feel so bad that she felt so suffocated that she felt like she had to
leave town. When she comes back, that can’t happen again.

Tessa: Yeah, absolutely.

Sharon: 100%.

Nikki: Now that you’re living on the property, little honesty can’t hurt.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] Are you sure about that?

Nikki: You and I have a difficult history.

Adam: Well, if we’re gonna be honest, uh, let’s not mince words. We haven’t
liked each other very much. Actually, at all.

Nikki: That’s accurate. But the way you have been trying to improve has not
gone unnoticed.

Adam: I’m just trying to do the right thing.

Nikki: Well, my first instinct was to keep a very close eye on you, just in
case.

Adam: What, just in case it was all an act?

Nikki: Wouldn’t be the first time. But apparently, I was wrong about you.

Adam: It takes a lot to admit that.

Nikki: Your desire to improve yourself seems sincere, and i know how
difficult it is to change. Trust me. I respect the effort you’re making.

Adam: I’m just trying every day to be a better man, a loving father,
dedicated son. But a lot of this is uncharted territory for me. Sometimes I wish
that I had a road map.

Nikki: Well, you have an entire family invested in your success. If you
should happen to get lost, there will always be somebody there to put you back
on the right path.

Adam: Well, that is very good to know.

Nikki: I am rooting for you.

Adam: Thank you, nikki. That means a lot.

Nikki: But know this — if you ever start to backslide or you put any one of
us in danger, you will go right back to being enemy number one.

Adam: I learned a long time ago to never underestimate you.

Nikki: Good. Keep it that way.

Amanda: Slow down, okay? Just tell me what the problem is.

Imani: I dropped by mom’s room before I came over here, and I knocked
repeatedly. There was no response. She’s gone.

Amanda: Okay, imani, it’s not like she disappeared.

Devon: I’m sure she’s fine.

Imani: Well, I looked everywhere I could think of, i called her, texted her a
dozen times. No response.

Devon: Why would she leave after agreeing to let amanda represent her?

Imani: [ Sighs ] Maybe that was just her way of getting out on bail, dropping
out of sight. I spoke to someone at the hotel security, the woman at the front
desk — no one can remember seeing her coming or going all day.

Amanda: Okay, that’s odd, but it is explainable. Just because no one has seen
her at the hotel, it doesn’t mean that she’s left genoa city. She could have
went on a really long walk, and that is hardly a bail violation. But don’t
worry, we will look into this.

Devon: Well, I’ll get out of your hair and let you guys figure it out. I’m
just a call away.

Amanda: Thank you.

Devon: Of course.

Amanda: Naya really picked the worst time to mia. I was just waiting to hear
back from victor newman about his conversation with sutton.

[ Sighs ] Well, that’s gonna have to wait because we can’t get an acquittal
without a defendant.

Imani: Mm-hmm. So how do you propose we track down mom?

Amanda: First step, we get into naya’s room.

Imani: I just told you, she’s not there, which means we won’t be able to get
inside.

Amanda: Well, the first thing that I learned when I realized that I need to
make my own way in this world — don’t let little things get in your way.

Brushing only reaches

25% of your mouth.

Sharon: Good night.

Adam: Am I too late? Are you closed?

Sharon: Well, I never turn away someone in need of a good cup of coffee. You
want the usual?

Adam: Yeah. Thank you.

Sharon: Um…

[ Clears throat ] Maybe this is none of my business, but how are connor and
chelsea doing?

Adam: It is definitely your business, since you’re the one that convinced me
to let chelsea take him to minnesota in the first place. Not to mention…

Sharon: Rey being drafted into going along to make sure everything goes
according to plan.

Adam: Mm-hmm. And it is. So far. At least that’s what I’ve heard from chelsea
and connor. Does rey agree?

Sharon: Well, I have talked to him since he left, but he never really says
that much about his work.

Adam: Of course.

Sharon: You know, I really hope that you won’t end up regretting taking my
advice, letting connor go be with his mom.

Adam: Well, I had to work hard to sell victor on the idea.

Sharon: Can’t imagine that negotiation.

Adam: Mm. He wasn’t entirely wrong about the risks. There still is a chance
that all of us is gonna become a problem down the road.

Sharon: In what way?

Adam: What if chelsea wants to live near anita? Or anywhere else, for that
matter? Then she’s gonna push to have connor live with her permanently.

Sharon: What would you do if that happened?

Adam: I want my son to be with me, period. I should be his custodial parent.
That is what’s best for him.

Sharon: Even if chelsea does get a clean bill of health.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Sharon: Wait, is there more to this? Hey, I don’t want to push, but you know
that we can talk about anything. You know that.

Adam: [ Sighs ] There — there’s a lot that you don’t know about all this.

Victor: Hi, my baby.

Nikki: Hey. If you’re looking for adam, he’s gone.

Victor: Well, just as well. I have a lot of things to deal with.

Nikki: Oh, yeah?

Victor: Yeah.

Nikki: What is going on in that brilliant mind of yours? You’ve been
distracted ever since you got home.

Victor: Yeah. Oh, by the way, we’re leaving for italy tomorrow.

Nikki: I know. I’m counting the hours.

Victor: Well, then, as time is ticking away, I still have a lot things to do
before we leave.

Nikki: Well, I’m glad that congratulating victoria was on that list. I saw
the flowers you sent. They’re beautiful.

Victor: Oh, that. Yeah. Well, you know, actually, you deserve that bouquet of
flowers. I mean, you reminded me that i was not at my best when it came to that
merger. I should’ve congratulated her because she pulled off quite a coup.

Nikki: Well, that’s very magnanimous of you. Of course…

Victor: What? What did I do wrong?

Nikki: Well, I was just gonna say that it would be an even more magnanimous
gesture if you were to congratulate her in person. Maybe you can put that on
your pre-flight to-do list.

Victor: Well, you mean what I did wasn’t good enough?

Nikki: I’m just keeping you honest, darling.

Victor: No one dose it better, you know.

Imani: When you said you don’t let the little things get in your way, I — I
thought you were going to…

Amanda: Pick the lock?

Imani: [ Sighs ] Well, the important thing is you were able to get security
to open up her door.

Amanda: I just don’t know why naya’s suite was emptied out. Why would an
innocent woman pack her bags and skip bail?

Imani: Easier than telling her well-meaning daughters no. She told us how she
wanted her defense structured.

Amanda: Yeah, and we agreed to her terms. We said that we would not implicate
sutton to save her.

Imani: We said that, but either she didn’t trust us from the beginning, or
she figured out we were going after sutton anyway. Based on the last
conversation i had with mom, it didn’t seem like she knew anything about that.

[ Sighs ]

Amanda: There’s another possibility.

[ Knock on door ] Sutton.

Sutton: Something’s happened to naya. I haven’t been able to find her.

Imani: We already know. We checked her suite. She’s disappeared.

Amanda: And there’s no good explanation that we can think of. Unless you’re
the one who told her to run. Feeling stressed in your skin?

Abby: I am so glad that mariah reached out. I feel like I can finally
breathe.

Tessa: Okay, there’s just one thing I need to say.

Abby: No, not until I clear the air.

Tessa: No, I’ll go first.

Abby: No, you have to hear this first.

Tessa: But after what I say, you might not want to say anything.

Abby: I’m sorry.

Tessa: I’ve just been so tightly wound up.

Abby: Me too.

Tessa: The tension between us is all my fault.

Abby: No, no, it was totally my fault.

Tessa: Let’s not argue about why we’re arguing.

Abby: You’re right. Forgiven?

Tessa: Forgotten. I mean, it never should have happened in the first place.

Abby: I’m so sorry that i snapped at you. Just all this uncertainty with
mariah, it really got to me.

Tessa: Me too. But at least it’s over.

Abby: And mariah’s fine.

Tessa: [ Sighs ] I’m just so glad that it’s not what I was afraid of, that
some lowlife from my past came to put mariah in jeopardy.

Abby: Well, it’s just crazy how your mind can fill in all of the blanks when
you don’t know the full story. Even though our fears were implausible, they felt
real.

Tessa: Just I’m the person who knows mariah the best.

[ Sighs ] I just — I don’t know, I figured that the mood swings were from
the pregnancy, but it was a reaction to me.

Abby: And me.

Tessa: Lesson learned.

Abby: We have to do better.

Tessa: And we will.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Sutton: If I knew where naya was, you think I’d be coming to you for help?

Imani: Is that why you came here?

Sutton: Not everything I do has a sinister motive. You used to know that,
imani.

Amanda: Yeah, you’re only up to something 90% of the time. So coming here,
acting worried, like you need our assistance, that’s exactly what you would do
if you were behind naya’s disappearance.

Sutton: What have I done to deserve this suspicion?

Amanda: Besides arranging my father’s murder?

Imani: Amanda, not now, please.

Sutton: What good does this nonsense do us? I thought we were past that.

Amanda: Oh, we were never past it, and you know it. It just went unsaid
because we both had an agenda that we were keeping close to the vest. Well, now
I think that it’s time that we stop pretending. So I want you to know — I’m
gonna prove that you are guilty of my father’s murder, not naya. And after
everything that you did today, I’m gonna make sure that you pay for it. So now,
you can tell me, where is my mother?

Sutton: I already told you, i don’t know. And we have to work together to
find her.

Amanda: No, you better worry about your damn self.

Sutton: [ Chuckles ] Is that a threat against me?

Amanda: I will find my mother. I will handle this the way that I have done
everything my entire life — alone. Now, you took my sister from me. You
deprived me of my father, and I will be damned if you take my mother from me,
too. So you better get the hell out of here. Okay, listen to me right now, we
need to focus.

Sharon: Chelsea faked her breakdown?

Adam: To a degree. She wasn’t well. I mean, no one who did what she did to
rey could be. But she was convinced that I had betrayed her, and her mind took
her to some very dark places.

Sharon: This is shocking.

Adam: I know.

Sharon: And dr. Hedges was involved? He has a good reputation. How could he
be in the middle of this scheme?

Adam: Money. Money talks. And I’m sure that you’re wondering how I could just
sit back and go along with victor’s plan.

Sharon: Yeah, that is surprising that you agreed, given that her whole
objective was to frame you.

Adam: Well, I had no idea what my father had done. I was on the run. And
then, when I came back to town…

Sharon: You were in the hospital…

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Sharon: …Donating your kidney.

Adam: When I learned the truth, I kept my mouth shut because I don’t want
connor’s mother to go to prison. I thought going in the mental facility would
help her heal. And her confession did clear me.

Sharon: Well, now that you explain it, I understand.

Adam: Plus, I blame myself for so much of what’s happened. Chelsea was the
one that had a devastating reaction, but I am the one that gave her something to
react to. A lie about her mental state to get her to the hospital is just the
beginning of chelsea’s crimes, but, uh…

Sharon: But what?

Adam: I try not to dwell on this, especially with chelsea out of town with
our son, but… I don’t know, when push comes to shove, chelsea always reverts
to form.

Sharon: But some people might say the same about you.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] It’s very common to have

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Adam: You are right. Most people will figure any change that I’m trying to
make for myself will be temporary or that it’s all just a show to begin with. I
actually just had a conversation with nikki about that very thing.

Sharon: I assume she thinks the worst of you.

Adam: Actually, she is giving me the benefit of the doubt for now. I hope
that you will have just as much faith that I can pull this off.

Sharon: You really have to ask?

Adam: There is a certain satisfaction that comes from just putting in the
work, trying to be a decent person instead of reveling in being the bad guy. You
know, every day is a new challenge. But I like it.

Sharon: You’re taking stock in yourself.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Sharon: That’s good.

Adam: Yeah, when I think about all the time and energy i invested in creating
conflict, not to mention the weight of all the hate and anger…it’s exhausting.
Just wish I had come to this realization a long time ago.

Sharon: Well, you know, you can’t always force change. I think the trick is
you just stay open-minded about it.

Adam: Hmm. Makes me think about how sure chelsea was that I was going to
steal connor away from her. How primed she was to expect the worst from me. But
maybe your suggestion that i let connor go with her will pay unintended
dividends.

Sharon: Well, I think it could be important that chelsea sees that you trust
her. It could help her heal.

Adam: Maybe she’ll see me in a different light, too.

Sharon: Since when has it been important to you what other people think?

Adam: It has always been important to me what you think of me. You know that.

Sharon: Worry about the rest of the world, right? We’re fine.

Adam: Mostly. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss you.

Sharon: It’s probably just, uh, your loneliness talking because your
relationship with chelsea is irretrievably over and connor’s out of town.

Adam: It’s deeper than that, sharon. You know that. And that will never
change.

Sharon: I know. Faith’s waiting for me at home. I have to get going.

Adam: Well, it’s perfect timing. Finished my coffee. Thank you for staying
open.

Sharon: Of course.

Adam: Good night.

Sharon: Good night.

Abby: There is more than enough blame to go around, so i am not gonna let you
hog it all, even though you and mariah are a couple and you’re very in tune with
each other.

Tessa: Which is why i should’ve known that something was wrong.

Abby: No, I have made so many mistakes. Number one, I mean, I feel like I
know mariah pretty well, and i had no idea that she was having such a hard time.
I mean, think about it. I mean, I was micro-managing every single thing that
went into her mouth. I was worrying every time she left the house. It was too
much.

Tessa: Oh, this is so much better. Competing who can take on more blame
instead of blame each other for mariah running away.

Abby: So much better. You know, when mariah comes back, I am not gonna get an
account of every single moment of her day.

Tessa: Yeah, and mariah can make her own herbal tea, which i will probably
still bring to her, of course.

Abby: Of course.

Tessa: But I’m putting my foot down — she can make it herself.

Abby: [ Laughs ]

Victor: Please have a seat.

Sutton: Thank you. I don’t have much time. I just came from an angry
encounter with my granddaughters.

Victor: Oh, boy, I know what that is about. Being at odds with one’s family
is not nice, is it?

Sutton: It’s brought me to a new level of clarity.

Victor: Ah.

Sutton: Yeah, I know what to do now.

Victor: Really? What’s that?

Sutton: Well, you give me that letter from richard, and when the day comes
that you need this favor repaid, it will be.

Victor: About that letter, sutton.

Sutton: Hmm?

Victor: Not gonna give it to you.

Sutton: This whole deal was your idea.

Victor: Yeah, I know. But I thought about it, you know? I realized that
amanda would have far better use for it than you do.

Sutton: What kind of game are you playing?

Victor: Ain’t playing a game.

Sutton: You said you had no allegiance to amanda.

Victor: Nothing to do with her. It has everything to do with not wanting to
help you. Now, you and I, sutton, have played on the edges of legality for a
while, you know? But this is different. I mean, you committed a crime. You
betrayed your family. And that I have no tolerance for. Don’t settle for
products that give you a sort of white smile.

Devon: I mean, the way I see it, this is all good news, ’cause mariah’s
taking care of herself and the baby, and she’s checked in, like the responsible
adult that she is. And the tension between the two of you seems to be gone.

Tessa: Yes, that’s true. We’re in a good place again.

Abby: Yes, and more importantly, tessa and I were just discussing how we want
to rethink things for when mariah comes home.

Tessa: Which she said would be in time for her next doctor’s appointment.

Devon: Good, good. Is something wrong, tessa?

Tessa: I don’t want to rain on any parades, but look,

[Sighs] I’ve said it before. She could’ve called. All of us. Or just one of
us, because she knew that we would worry, but she only reaches out through text?

Abby: Maybe it’s because she’s that if she hears one of our voices, she’ll be
tempted to come home before she’s ready.

Tessa: I guess.

Abby: You know what? I don’t know about you guys, but when mariah returns, I
don’t want her to feel a bit of pressure. All I want her to feel are little,
tiny baby kicks from inside from a baby who’s eager to meet all of us.

Devon: Amen.

Victor: Sutton, you’re the head of your family. There’s no greater
responsibility. You were given the gift of two beautiful twin granddaughters.
You didn’t protect them. Didn’t do a damn thing for them. You turned your back
on them. Why? To protect your own rear end.

Sutton: I did what I had to do.

Victor: That’s what all politicians say.

Sutton: You are no better than me. I’ve heard all the stories about your
awful relationships with your own children.

Victor: You haven’t heard all of them. There were many. And I have made
mistakes. I admit to it. But one dictum, one mantra I’ve always lived by — I
never turn my back on my family. I never leave them to their own devices. That’s
why I’ve created this new company with my son adam. The guy that a lot of people
had given up for a lost cause. That’s why I appointed my daughter victoria to
run newman enterprises, a company that I created. You turned your back on your
family out of selfishness. Now you’re paying for that.

Sutton: You’ve always had your billions of dollars to buy your way out of
your problems. I don’t have that luxury. I had to remain untouchable. My power
base has to be secure. That’s the only way I can ensure my family comes first.

Victor: And richard nealon, amanda’s father, got in the way of that?

Sutton: Uh-huh. Yeah, richard… he was trouble. Naya deserved so much more.
He wasn’t like us. It’s a miracle that somebody with his background even made it
to college. And my pride and joy had to go and get herself pregnant with that…
well, if that meant that two accidents of birth had to be sacrificed, then, by
god, so be it.

[ Stammers ] It was for the greater good.

Victor: Oh, yeah.

Sutton: I can live with what I’ve done. Richard was a nobody. He was a gnat.
And he could’ve brought down everything I’d worked for. Well, that was a risk I
was not willing to take. Now give me the damn letter.

Victor: What letter is that, sutton?

[ Door opens ]

Imani: I’d like to hear that answer, too, grandfather. What letter? Are you
tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?

Devon: Alright. Well, now that I know everything is cool with mariah and that
you’re feeling better about everything, I should probably go and check on
amanda, ’cause she’s been having a tough time tonight.

Tessa: Oh, I hope everything’s okay.

Devon: Oh, thank you. If it’s not, I know she’ll make it right, so…

Abby: Hey, devon, um, before you go, I — I just wanted to thank you for
talking me down earlier, reminding me of what chance would say in a stressful
situation. It really helped.

Devon: I’m glad it did. You have a really good guy who loves you, puts you
first and foremost, so hang on to him.

Abby: I will. I’m very lucky to have you remind me of that.

Sutton: I don’t know how much you heard —

Amanda: We heard more than enough.

Sutton: Well, I’ll deny it. Every word — it was all said in the heat of the
moment.

Amanda: Well, we recorded every word. So you can deny it all you want, but
this is exactly what I need to save my mother and to prove that you are the one
who had my father killed. Victor knew exactly what to say to keep you talking.
Oh, and by the way? There is no letter. There never was.

Sutton: These charges will never stick.

Amanda: We’ll see.

Sutton: Amanda, just tell me what you want.

Amanda: I want my father back, you son of a bitch.

Sharon: I don’t need any saving. I didn’t come here to cry on your shoulder.

Adam: You can, sharon. Okay? You can be or feel anything you want with me.

Sharon: You know, you’ve convinced yourself that you’re damaged somehow and
you’re flawed and beyond saving, but, you know, that’s not true. Yeah, you’re in
a dark place right now, but I can see the path — light and hope — and I just
— I want to help you find that. I want to.

Adam: You know that i would — I would do anything to take this all away.

Sharon: I can’t imagine what my life would be like right now if you hadn’t
rescued her. I know I — know I-I couldn’t survive the loss of another child.

Adam: Well, I’m just glad i was in the right place at the right time. Anyone
would have done the same thing.

Sharon: But I know that you put your freedom at risk in order to do it. So,
no…not just anyone would have made that choice. I’ll never forget what you
were willing to sacrifice for faith and me.

Adam: When I was trapped with nick, I’ve realized that you are a part of me,
sharon. And you always will be. There’s no denying it. I told myself that I was
leaving to protect you, to protect everyone, but… no matter how fast or far
away i run, you will always be right there with me. The fact that I’m standing
here right now is just further proof of that.

Sharon: No, you’re here for faith, nothing more.

Adam: Sharon… just hear me out, okay? Before nick found me, I had a lot of
time alone. He only knew where to find me because of you and your insight…
into me. You’ve always understood how my mind works. I mean, even when I had
forgotten who I was, and I was living in vegas. And after I learned what I had
done to A.J. Montalvo as a kid, you see me, sharon. You see me in a way no one’s
been able to do… not even chelsea. And I don’t expect anything to ever come of
it, because I know nothing can come of it.

Sharon: You say all these beautiful words, these… seductive and tempting
words, but…here is the truth, adam. I can’t be that for you. I can’t — I
can’t be that for you. You — you have got to accept that you and I are not
going to get back together.

Adam: Because of rey? I mean, can you honestly compare your feelings for him
to what you and I shared?

Sharon: No, I cannot because I’ll never love him the way that I loved you.

Adam: So let’s not waste any more time.

Sharon: But that doesn’t mean that my love for rey isn’t strong. He — he
supports me. He builds me up. He gives me strength. Whereas, with you… things
are just complicated. You have to get better for the sake of your family!

Adam: No. No. What I need is to get out of genoa city with my family. That is
what’s gonna make me heal, okay? Or call the judge, okay? Call the judge. Tell
him you’ve made a mistake. Tell him that you saw me, you’ve spent time with me,
and you’ve realized that you made a mistake, okay? If I ever meant anything to
you, sharon, fix this. Okay? Save me.

Sharon: I can’T. You know that. You know that.

Adam: Okay? I’m very tired.

Sharon: Alright, well, try to rest.

Adam: I just — I don’t know if I can.

Sharon: I’ll help you.

Adam: Well, um… will you stay?

Sharon: I’ll be right here. I’m not going anywhere.

Adam: You and I — we had a lifetime of history before I ever met chelsea.

Sharon: Well, maybe that’s just what it is. It’s history. You know, you can’t
just compartmentalize whole relationships of this scope.

Adam: That — that is shrink talk. Your training — it doesn’t apply to us.
There’s no chapter in that psychology textbook that can explain you and me.

Sharon: You love chelsea, okay? Not me.

Adam: Don’t push me away. You will never love rey the way that you love me.
This — you and I — it is meant to be.

Sharon: I-I can’T. I-I won’T.

Adam: Sharon.

Quinn: We can’t keep doing this.

Carter: I know.

Quinn: Or this.

Carter: Mmm-hmm. Nope.

Quinn: Or this. Okay. Why is it… every time I try to head for the door, I keep ending up in a different position?


Brooke: Wow. Can you–

Ridge: Well, that’s not good. It’s a mistake.

Brooke: Brooke and Ridge Forrester, co-CEOs. Yeah, that’s what it says.

Ridge: I know. But everyone knows that I’m running this company with Steffy half a year, um, still but hasn’t come out yet.

Brooke: Do you think Steffy would be upset if it has?

Ridge: Of course, she’d be upset. You’d be upset if somebody got credit for the work you’ve done. I mean, she’s totally committed to this company, it’s important to her.

Brooke: Well, maybe this is a– a good opportunity to talk about it.

Ridge: Talk about what? How important this company is to my daughter?

Brooke: No–I mean, yeah. Uh, I’m sure it’s important to her, but what if I were to be co-CEO with you?


Finn: Should I just do a diaper run?

Steffy: No, no, we had plenty. I just don’t know what I did with it, like what–what– where is my brain? Honestly, where is my– diapers are behind the couch. Diapers are behind the couch.

Finn: You got them.

Steffy: Oh.

Finn: Nice.

Steffy: Oh, my goodness.

Finn: As you can see, we’re, uh, we’re– we’re very organized.

Paris: You’re new parents. Cut yourself some slack.

Steffy: I’m not a new parent. You are. I don’t get a pass. I should be better at this.

Finn: Don’t listen to her. Steffy’s on top of everything. We’re just running low on, um, what’s it called? Uh, sleep.

Steffy: Sleep. Sleep. Yeah.

Finn: Yeah. But, uh, what parents of the newborn aren’t?

Steffy: Paris, thanks for coming by to talk about the foundation. I need my notes and I don’t know where my notes are.

Finn: Notes?

Steffy: Yeah, babe. Where are they? What did I do? Um, okay. Um, I’m not sure where they are.

Finn: Notes?

Steffy: You’re– you are my hero. Thank you. By the way, Paris, I’m going back into the office very soon, so you don’t have to make the trip all the way out here.

Paris: I don’t mind. And I have a hard time tearing myself away from little Baby Hayes, too. He’s adorable. You and Doc sure made a handsome little boy.


Brooke: I’m just curious. What would you think of me as your co-CEO?

Ridge: What–what would i think of you taking a job that’s already taken by someone else?

Brooke: By your daughter, yes.

Ridge: Yeah. And she’s not stepping down. She’s raising a family and she’s gonna do a great job running this company with me.

Brooke: And I’m not saying she won’t.

Ridge: Okay. Then what are you saying? What’s going on in that beautiful head of yours?


Steffy: Okay. Give me a couple more minutes to get up to speed on your latest outreach proposals.

Paris: Oh, no rush. Oh, I almost forgot. On my way here, I stopped by Malibu Fish Tacos. You guys may not want them, but I grabbed a couple extra. I heard how crazy it can be having a newborn in the house.

Finn: Is this woman a lifesaver or what?

Steffy: Right?

Finn: Yes.

Steffy: I mean, we have been so swamped. We haven’t even had a chance to eat yet.

Finn: I want this so bad.

Paris: Geez. No food, no sleep? How are you still even going?

Finn: Um–

Steffy: I don’t know.

Finn: –Somehow when you have a new baby, you don’t notice those things. The joy that he brings even when he’s fussing and keeping you awake, it, um– it’s totally all worth it.

Paris: Spoken like a loving, doting dad.

Steffy: He definitely is. He’s so lucky to have you as his father and I’m very lucky to be doing this with you. I can’t imagine doing this with anyone else.


Quinn: Hmm. I could stay like this forever.

Carter: Mmm-hmm. Me too. But forever isn’t an option for us.

Quinn: I know. Eric made it very clear that you need to stay away from me.

Carter: Mmm-hmm.

Quinn: If he had any idea that you and I are still.

Carter: Yeah. It’s a huge risk.

Quinn: Yeah. And I’m not willing to let you take it. As much as I love being with you, you have such a huge future ahead of you, and I’m not gonna do anything to ruin it. That’s exactly what would happen if Eric got even the slightest hint that you and i were still involved.


Steffy: Hmm, it sounds like you’re enjoying yourself. Okay. I love you. I love you. All right. Bye-bye. Kelly’s having a good time with her daddy. Well, she’s very excited to get back for a play date with her little brother.

Finn: Hmm. Well, I think Hayes is too, but at the moment he’s finally catching up on some Z’s.

Paris: Oh, you know, he’s such a good baby. I have not heard a peep out of him since I’ve been here.

Steffy: I know. Speaking of which, we should get back to it. So these changes you’re suggesting to the foundation’s mission statement, I think they’re great. You know, I especially like how they reflect the foundation’s evolving goals.

Paris: Thanks. The foundation has been making significant strides in all areas including homeless and food and security. But I know it’s also important to you that we focus more resources and attention on drug addiction as well.

Steffy: Yeah. I’m sure you realize why.

Paris: Yes.

Steffy: My struggles with opioids, it really opened my eyes, like I had no idea it was such a pervasive problem until I went through it myself.

Finn: Addiction is insidious that way. You know, it slowly takes over a person’s life before they can realize it. The more help that’s out there and– sorry, I–I–I’m not involved in the foundation, I probably shouldn’t be weighing in.

Steffy: Of course, you should. You’re at the hospital, you see problems every day.

Paris: Hey, you know what? I just had a thought. What if Finn could serve on one of the foundation’s advisory committees? I’m sure his input would be invaluable. I mean, only if that’s something you’re interested in.

Finn: No, I mean, yeah, definitely.

Steffy: All right. I like it. The issues of better medical care and access to the needy, I really wanna dive deeper on that. Let’s talk about it the next time I see you. And I really want to expand the foundation’s footprint. Again, feel free, you should actually talk to dr. Finn again if you need anything, you know, pick his brain when he’s not diapering or saving lives.

Finn: Folding laundry?

Steffy: Yeah. [ Laughs ]

Finn: No, definitely. I’d, um– I’d love to give some input.

Paris: Cool. I’m looking forward to it.

Finn: You know, Steffy, she’s always saying how impressed she is with you and I can definitely see why she feels that way.

Steffy: If Hayes understood what we were talking about, he’d be very impressed with Paris, too. He would.


Brooke: Having that conversation with Ellen and remembering all of the contributions that I’ve made here.

Ridge: Okay. This company wouldn’t be the same without you. There’s no question.

Brooke: Thank you. I appreciate you saying that. You and I did have a discussion about me having a more important role here and now that Eric is stepping down a little bit from his responsibilities, I mean, think about it. I could really help out here until Steffy comes back full time. Wouldn’t it be fun? Ridge, think about it. We could run this company the way Stephanie and Eric did.

Ridge: Hey, Dad.

Eric: I still haven’t been able to track down Carter. Has he been in touch with either one of you?

Ridge: No, he has not. It’s about your divorce proceedings, you just wanna get going on it, huh?

Eric: Yeah. Yeah, he’s my lawyer. I wanna get going on this and I wanna get him in here.

Ridge: All right. Then, video call him, put some fire under him.


Carter: That’s the ring I set for Eric.

Quinn: Do you think he knows I’m here?

Carter: No.

Quinn: Of course not.

Carter: But I do need to get this.

Quinn: Okay. Go ahead.

Eric: Carter, are you okay?


Steffy: Okay. I think we’re good for today, unless there’s anything else we need to cover.

Paris: No, I think we covered everything we needed to cover and then some.

Steffy: Thank you again for coming out all this way.

Paris: Uh, of course. I love Malibu. The ocean, the views, it’s so peaceful and tranquil.

Steffy: Yeah.

Hayes: [ Cries ]

Finn: Peaceful and tranquil, huh?

Paris: Yeah, nice.

Steffy: Hi, baby. Oh, what’s going on?

Finn: See? Um… here, Steff, maybe he’s hungry.

Steffy: Oh, no, maybe he’s– maybe he has a wet diaper.

Finn: You think so? Um, maybe both.

Steffy: Here, let me.

Finn: Maybe just– maybe just try to feed him.

Steffy: Okay. Okay. Come on, baby. Come on, come on, come on.

Hayes: [ Cries ]

Steffy: No, no, he doesn’t–he doesn’t want the bottle.

Finn: Here, maybe i can try it. Hey, come here, buddy.

Steffy: Oh.

Finn: Hey, man, what’s going on?

Paris: I don’t wanna overstep but I could give it a try. I’m pretty good with babies.

Finn: Yeah, sure. We could use all help we can get.

Hayes: [ Cries ]


Eric: Carter, what’s going on? And you’re half-dressed. Did I get you in the middle of something?

Carter: Um, I just finished a brief workout and I figured since I was working from home that I’d, uh, get it in. Is there something you need from me?

Eric: Uh, yes, yes, and I’d like to, uh, do it in person if I may.

Carter: Of course. I’ll–I’ll leave for the office right away. Um, what does this concern, may I ask?

Eric: Carter, it’s about the divorce. I wanna get started right away. And, uh, there’s a few things about the jewelry line I wanna talk about.

Carter: I see.

Eric: You know, actually, I don’t think you do, but you will once we talk. Look, I wanna get this started. I wanna get all this business, all this ugliness behind me as soon as possible. And I’m sure you feel exactly the same way.

Carter: Uh, yes, absolutely.

Eric: Yeah, look, first things first, drop a letter to–to Quinn and her attorney letting her know that you’re my lawyer and that you’ll be representing me during the divorce. I wanna get started on this right away.

Ridge: Carter, uh, is there someone there with you?

Brooke: Oh, honey, leave him alone.

Ridge: Uh, there’s–there’s a dress over there back at the couch and I don’t think it fits him.

Carter: Oh, Ridge, that’s, um, not mine.

Ridge: Don’t worry about it, my wife is right, none of my business.

Carter: So I’ll–I’ll see you soon, Eric.

Eric: Yes. Carter, look, it’s a good thing that you’re stepping up that you’re willing to try to make things the way they were. And I appreciate your dedication to the–the family and to the business all these years. That’s more important now than ever. I don’t want that to change.

Carter: Okay. Um, I’ll see you soon.

Carter: What are we doing?

Quinn: Yeah. I can see how difficult this is for you and I can’t do this to you anymore.


Paris: Are you sure?

Finn: Yeah, of course. And we appreciate the offer.

Steffy: What were you thinking?

Paris: Well, my mom said she’d do this to me when I cry. She says it always works.

Steffy: Um, yeah, yeah, go for it.

Paris: Okay. Give me that.

Finn: Okay.

Paris: Oh, my goodness. Oh, okay. ♫♪ Rock-a-bye baby on the tree top when the wind blows the cradle will rock when the bough breaks the cradle will fall and down will come baby cradle and all rock-a-bye baby on the tree top when the wind blows the cradle will rock and when the bough breaks the cradle will fall and down will come baby cradle and all ♫♪

Steffy: You have the magic touch.

Finn: Thank you.

Steffy: Um…


Eric: Well, that, uh– that was a little awkward.

Ridge: I guess we know what kind of workout Carter was doing.

Brooke: Any idea who the woman might be?

Carter: That was too close.

Quinn: Hearing Eric’s voice right now just reminds me how special the man is. It also reminded me how special you are to the Forrester family. You are not just respected by them, you’re not just a valued employee, you are part of their family. I care too much about you to risk losing all of that over me, I mean, I have made your life difficult enough as it is.

Carter: You did not make my life difficult, Quinn. I was heartbroken and I was angry all the time. And you brought something wonderful and unique into my life. You changed my world in the most amazing, unexpected way, and I wouldn’t trade that for anything.

Quinn: I wouldn’t trade it either, but–but it’s not worth it to risk losing… losing everything. You’re–if-if Ridge and Eric find out that we’re still involved, you’re not just gonna risk losing your job, you’re gonna lose your friendship with them. And then what? What? You’re gonna be shut out. You’re gonna be a pariah like I am and that is too much. I’m not worth it. I am not worth it.

Carter: Yes, you are.

N’neka:: Cheers, Curtis. You couldn’t ask for a better opening night.

Curtis: Right. Yeah. Well, I can think of a few other things.

Portia: Hi.

Curtis: Hi.

Portia: Um, I know you’re busy. This is probably a bad time with your opening night and all.

Curtis: Actually, um, your timing couldn’t have been any better.

Portia: Good, good. Because I was thinking about what you said at the pool earlier… about how you would be here tonight if I —

Curtis: If you were interested. And here you are.

Portia: Yeah.


Jordan: Stella, what were you thinking, telling Portia to back off Curtis?

Stella: I was thinking you and Curtis need more time to work out your differences and remember how much you love each other. I gave you an opportunity to fight for your man. Why didn’t you take it?

Jordan: I don’t owe you an explanation.

Stella: You’re right. You don’t owe me. But you owe it to yourself to be honest. Why are you walking away without a fight?


Sam: Olivia. Hey, hi.

Olivia: You meeting someone, or you flying solo?

Sam: Uh, well, I was supposed to be meeting Spinelli, but he just texted me and said he had to reschedule.

Olivia: Oh. Mamma mia. The things I do for this place. Hey, hey, hey. Ms. Corbin, what can I do for you?

Gladys: [ Chuckles ] We’re practically family. Call me Gladys.

Olivia: Ah, Gladys. What’s your pleasure?

Gladys: Oh, another mai tai. [ Chuckles ] Plus the inside scoop on what your partner Carly is willing to do for my son.


Brando: Sasha?

Sasha: Brando. What’s wrong?

Brando: Nothing’s wrong. No, for the first time, I’m sure everything’s gonna be alright.


Anna: Dante, hi.

Dante: Anna.

Anna: So, you know that I’ve been working on behalf of the WSB and, uh, trying to find Peter and Maxie’s baby. Yeah?

Dante: Yeah, we got the memo.

Anna: Great. So, uh, Valentin and I, we just got back from New York, where we — we found the helicopter pilot. And we questioned him, and he admitted to being involved in Peter’s plan to take Maxie and the baby. And then when that fell through, he had been ordered to airlift Peter off the roof at G.H.

Dante: This is the one who claimed that he couldn’t make the pickup because he wasn’t allowed to land?

Anna: Yeah, yeah. He was denied clearance.

Dante: Mm.

Anna: But there’s an added factor.

Dante: Okay.

Anna: He told us that there’s another person on the roof with Peter.

Dante: Mm. Someone we know?

Anna: Man. Vague description — uh, tall, dark hair, street clothes. Yeah.

Dante: Okay. Something to go on.

Anna: Yeah, actually, we need to keep that information confidential.

Dante: Why? And why are you working so closely with Valentin Cassadine when it feels like you — you barely trust me?


Valentin: [ Whispers ] Hey! How’s my angel?

Brook Lynn: She’s fast asleep.

Valentin: [ Sighs ]

Brook Lynn: Did you just get back?

Valentin: I did. I just came right from the airport. I had to see Bailey. It was just a short trip, but I can’t tell you how much I missed her.


Elizabeth: According to Cameron, Violet wolfed down three slices of pizza and couldn’t stop talking about how her dad showed her how to get a hit. Well done, coach.

Finn: I refuse to take any credit for Violet’s T-ball triumph.

Elizabeth: Well, I’d like to think the cupcakes had something to do with it, but, you know, you were the main source of inspiration.

Finn: You know, my time with Violet is the only thing that helps me forget what I have hanging over me.

Elizabeth: You mean Peter August? May I remind you, he poisoned Chase and destroyed the antidote right in front of your face. You rid this town of a monster.

Finn: Yeah, see, that’s the thing. You see enough horror movies, and you realize monsters never really die. They haunt you forever.


Elizabeth: Peter’s already taken enough from you. Don’t let him rob you of your joy in Violet.

Finn: Violet is my joy. She’s my reason for living, which just makes me realize how painful it would be to be without her.

Elizabeth: That’s not gonna happen.

Finn: Nobody gets away with murder.

Elizabeth: Don’t…call it murder. Peter got what he deserved.

Finn: Doesn’t justify throwing a man face-first down a flight of stairs. You know, if they were to give me a polygraph, if they were to put me on the stand, I’d have to admit I wanted Peter dead.

Elizabeth: Yeah, so did a lot of other people.

Finn: They weren’t up on that roof, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: You pushed him in the heat of very justifiable anger. I’m sure if a jury understood the circumstances, they’d acquit you. Not that we’re gonna find out. We’re gonna find a way out of this.

Finn: [ Sighs ]

Elizabeth: We are.


Anna: If I didn’t trust you, I wouldn’t be giving you that information. And Valentin has a vested interest in finding out what happened to Peter. Right?

Dante: Okay. So, is the idea that this guy on the roof was an accomplice of Peter’s, there to help him find a way out when the helicopter couldn’t pick him up?

Anna: Yeah, maybe. Entirely possible, though. And it could be someone that was working at the hospital, so you can see the need for secrecy. Probably someone affiliated with Cyrus. They maybe knew that some of the security cameras were disabled.

Dante: Maybe even someone on staff, someone who was handpicked by Cyrus.

Anna: So, I’m gonna head to the hospital and have a discreet conversation with Monica Quartermaine and ask some questions.

Dante: Okay. I’ll have, uh, our people go over the video footage from whatever cameras were working that night and see if we can find someone who matches that description.

Anna: Thank you. It’s good to be working with you again, Detective Falconeri.

Dante: Yeah, same. Hey, um… I’m sorry if I got on you there. We both know it wasn’t too long ago that, um, you didn’t know if I was a — a friend or an enemy.


Gladys: After all my son and I did for that family, I shouldn’t even have to ask. You know, on rainy days, I still ache from the bullet I took to help bring down Cyrus. I hope Carly and Jason don’t forget that.

Sam: How can we forget when you keep reminding everyone?

Gladys: Your only connection to that family is through your ex.

Sam: Ooh.

Gladys: Mine are blood ties, and so are Brando’s.

Sam: Ouch. So, I guess, uh, Jason and Sonny proves that sometimes water is thicker than blood.

Gladys: Put my drinks on Carly’s tab.

Olivia: Thank you for that assist. And I will repay that favor, and I — and I do use that term loosely — to fill you in on the latest Quartermaine drama. Tell you what, watching those people close ranks against an outsider, that is something to behold.

Sam: Wait a minute. Close ranks? Against Valentin?

Olivia: Ah, different outsider.


Brook Lynn: Can’t believe how quickly Bailey went down tonight. She has been so fussy the last few days.

Valentin: She must feel more comfortable with both her parents under the same roof.

Brook Lynn: So, um, tell me about your adventure with Anna.

Valentin: It was interesting. At least the investigation is on the right track.

Brook Lynn: In other words, it’s none of my business?

Valentin: Not really. It’s nothing personal. Anna and I are —

Brook Lynn: I know, I know, you’re a team.

Valentin: Yeah. We’re a damn good team, if I have to say so myself.

Brook Lynn: And what does Anna say?


Jordan: Portia and I have become friends, and I have no intention of telling her how to feel or asking her to back away from something or someone that she really cares about. Same goes for Curtis. Stella, our divorce is sad, and it’s painful, but I just want what’s best for him.

Stella: [ Sighs ] Me? I guess I’m just old-school. When you took the vow until death do you part, I believe in those words. You don’t simply quit when the going gets tough.

Jordan: Marriage is a two-way street. I can’t fight for something all by myself. Like our vows said, it takes two, and Curtis is done with this marriage.

Stella: You never gave him a chance to fight alongside you. You always kept Curtis on the outside looking in.

Jordan: Yeah, okay, you’re right. I hurt him. And do you want me to do it again by fighting him on a divorce that was his idea, that he clearly wants?

Stella: I want you to be honest with yourself, Jordan. Do you want this marriage to be over? Or are you throwing in the towel because you feel guilty?


N’neka:: You look great. I love what you’re wearing.

Terry: Thank you. I thought it felt right for a grand opening.

N’neka:: Are you meeting someone?

Terry: You never know. [ Chuckles ] The night is so young, after all.


Portia: You know, uh, maybe this was a bad idea, coming here tonight. See, the thing is, is I like Jordan.

Curtis: I like Jordan, too.

Portia: And I like you.

Curtis: Okay, well, in my book, that’s a — that’s a good thing, right?

Portia: I mean, y-yes and no.

Curtis: So, you don’t like me?

Portia: I’m usually not at a loss for words, but all of a sudden, I’m just all… tongue-tied right now. [ Chuckles nervously ] Everything I’m saying is even sounding more confusing. Yes, Curtis, I like you. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t like you.

Curtis: Nothing confusing about that. Because I made it abundantly clear that I like you. So now that that’s been established, is there something else you’re trying to tell me?


Portia: Look. [ Chuckles ] You were honest with me at the pool today, and — and I heard you. And I want to be just as honest with you.

Curtis: I would really appreciate that. Honesty is the best policy, so they say. Where’s my manners? You came to the opening of my club, and I haven’t even offered you a drink. What can I get you? It’s on the house.

Portia: No, no, no, no, no, no, it’s okay. I-I-I actually would like a clear head, because I want to get this right.

Curtis: “This”? Damn, is it that serious?

Portia: I mean, what can I say? [ Scoffs ] I was telling Terry earlier that… I haven’t dated really seriously since Marcus and I divorced.

Curtis: Mm. Well, I’m not gonna trot out the “it’s like riding a bike” metaphor. I’m pretty sure it’ll come back to you naturally.

Portia: Right. I mean, I don’t want you to think that I’m a prude or super old-fashioned or anything like that. I-I mean, I am a doctor. I’ve seen everything. But… I’ve had two pretty epic back-to-back failures with Marcus and then with you. So it’s easy for me to be a little gun-shy or oversimplify and — and assume that things are gonna be easy and uncomplicated just because we knew each other from back in the day. I mean, how much of that is nostalgia? H-h-how much of that is actually real? And I’m saying this all wrong, aren’t I?

Curtis: No, no, I-I wouldn’t say you’re saying it wrong. Perhaps you’re talking in circles, because it seems like you’re saying everything except for what you came here to say.

Portia: You’re right. I had this all down perfect in my head on the way over here. But I’m sitting with you face-to-face, and… I can’t get a coherent word out. [ Chuckles ] I think that’s my cue to leave, so…

Curtis: Wait, wait, wait, wait, Portia. Don’t go.


Stella: I know my stubborn opposition to the two of you as a couple made things even harder. I still carry that guilt, and every Sunday, I pray for forgiveness.

Jordan: I forgave you a long time ago.

Stella: That’s very kind, but I wasn’t praying to you.

Jordan: [ Scoffs ] My mistake.

Stella: Jordan, the mistake would be for you to let that man, who you obviously still love, walk out of your life without fighting for him. If you feel there is anything left unsaid, you need to go to Curtis and say it.

Jordan: No. It’s too late.

Stella: Oh, please! Have you even signed the divorce papers yet?

Jordan: No.

Stella: Why not?


Brando: When I asked you to meet me here, I had no idea how romantic they make the pool look at night. It’s almost as if I had planned it.

Sasha: Planned what?

Brando: You. Me. The baby. Us. Look, I-I know that you don’t want to raise our baby in a world that’s owned and operated by people like Cyrus Renault.

Sasha: Carly and Jason are in that life. A-and I know it’s complicated ’cause Sonny was your cousin —

Brando: Yes. Yes. I’m sorry to cut you off. They — yes, they will always be my family. But that doesn’t mean that I have to live in their world. I don’t want that for our baby, either.

Sasha: What are you saying?

Brando: I’m saying that… sometimes you have to make choices in life. And I’ve made mine.


Sam: Wait a minute. You’re telling me that Austin, the country doctor who happened to be in the woods to deliver Maxie’s baby, is a long-lost Quartermaine?

Olivia: How random is that? Hmm?

Sam: I don’t — I don’t know. I actually — I don’t think it’s that random at all.

Olivia: What are you talking about?

Sam: Well, Dante and I went to the — the house in the woods where the fake nurse took Maxie. And it turns out that Austin not only owns that property, but he rents it out. I mean, he totally claimed his innocence. And I knew there was something fishy about that guy. So if he was planning on coming out as a Quartermaine, I’m sure he loved that he was getting all this inside information on people from Port Charles.

Olivia: Well, listen, whatever this Austin guy is trying to pull on ELQ, I know that Michael and Ned can right that ship. I-I just hope they do it without too many fireworks. Had enough of those on the fourth, huh?

Dante: If it were me, I would have chosen you.

Sam: Dante told you about that?

Olivia: Told me about what?


Anna: When you first came back to Port Charles, I was really worried that you were still struggling with PTSD.

Dante: I was.

Anna: Yeah.

Dante: So you had every right to feel that way. [ Sighs ] I was doubting myself. You know, when Jordan asked me to come back to work, I said no, ’cause I didn’t know if I was right. I didn’t know if I was still in control of my mind or if Kirk was or… anyway, I’ve been continuing to see Kevin Collins and, uh… just making sure I’m staying on track.

Anna: It takes guts to do that, to admit that you have an issue and just work to overcome it.

Dante: I had some help, too, from… someone other than Kevin.

Sam: Think about everyone who loses if you pull that trigger — your mom, your sisters, your brothers, and your son. Think about Rocco right now. He needs his father. You’re all he has. Hey, come on. It’s okay. It’s okay. I’ve got you.

Dante: Sam, she, uh — she found a way to talk me off that ledge.

Anna: I’m glad.

Dante: Yeah, me, too.

Anna: [ Chuckles ]

Dante: Anyway, I’d like to repay her by tracking down Peter August and bringing him in.

Anna: Alright, I’ll head over to the hospital and, uh, see what I can find out about Peter’s accomplice. If I hit pay dirt, I’ll let you know.

Dante: Thanks.

Anna: Yeah.


Jordan: Stella, I’m in charge of a police department. I have multiple ongoing investigations happening —

Stella: All in need of your attention. I agree. But are you really expecting me to believe that in your very busy work day, you can’t find time to sign a few papers? Or in your heart of hearts, are you hoping if you put it off long enough, Curtis is gonna change his mind, he’s gonna declare that he never stopped loving you, and rip up the divorce papers right in front of you?


Curtis: I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have pressured you.

Portia: You shouldn’t have.

Curtis:  It’s a classic case of me thinking because I want something, that everyone else must want it, too.

Portia: Curtis, I-I —

Curtis: No, I — no, I get it. I get it. We had something once, something in the past. It was bound to end. So we should keep it where it belongs, in the past. That’s what you want, right?

Portia: Well, let me ask you, Curtis. Do you want to leave us in the past?


Brando: You have to remember who I am, Sasha. I’m — I’m a military guy, and I own a garage. So words and — and feelings, those aren’t my strong suit. I-it took you being strong and making a decision about what’s a deal-breaker for you to give me perspective on what it is that I truly want. And that — that isn’t working for Corinthos Coffee and all the rest of the life that comes with it.

Sasha: Are you sure?

Brando: Okay, so maybe I-I don’t have everything figured out just yet, but — but I do know this much. I choose you, Sasha Gilmore. I choose you and our baby, our family. That’s what I want. And I hope you want that, too.

Sasha: [Chuckles ] I think that you don’t give yourself enough credit. Those were some pretty nice words.


Sam: You are talking about the Fourth of July fireworks, of course.

Olivia: What did you think I was talking about? And what’s it got to do with Dante?

Dante: Me? Hey.

Sam: Oh.

Dante: Hmm. You, um — you, um, told my mother?

Olivia: Could someone please explain to me what we’re talking about here?

Dante: Oh — yeah. Yes, yes. Of course. Um, myself and Sam and I and, um…

Sam: Finn.

Dante: …Finn and Elizabeth, uh, were on the pier waiting for the fireworks to start, uh, on July the 4th and, uh —

Sam: Some fireworks, huh?

Dante: Yeah. I was giving someone a, uh, lecture on what a public disturbance was.

Sam: He was.

Olivia: Really? Really?

Dante: Yeah.

Sam: Yeah.

Dante: So, uh, it kind of led to, uh, I guess you could say, a bit of a fiery exchange… I — …where Sam almost fell into the water and —

Sam: I did, actually.

Dante: You did. And I tried to stop her…

Sam: So I pulled him in after me.

Dante: …From falling, and she pulled me in, so we both ended up —

Olivia: Both of you?

Dante: Yeah.

Sam: Yeah.

Dante: [ Clears throat ] It was funny.

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Olivia: Well, you know what? I don’t know what to make of this whole story. But I got a restaurant to run.

Sam: Hmm.

Dante: Oh, man.

Sam: [ Sighs ] Thank you for the save.

Dante: Oh. Don’t worry about it. The last thing I want is my mother to know anything about my private life.

Sam: Wait, what — what’s that supposed to mean? What, are you saying you’re embarrassed that you kissed me?


Valentin: Anna and I have a long, strange, complicated history. We trained together as spies at the WSB years and years ago, and through a series of unfortunate misunderstandings, we wound up on opposing sides.

Brook Lynn: Sounds painful.

Valentin: It was. But we found our way back to each other and we trust each other — not completely by any stretch of the imagination, but we do work well together.

Brook Lynn: So, what changed?

Valentin: Peter. Peter changed things. For our own individual reasons, we gave him the benefit of the doubt. We protected him. We shielded him when we shouldn’t have. Now we are working together to stop him and mitigate the damage. We work well together as a team.

Brook Lynn: And you’re sure that’s all you are? A team?

Valentin: My personal feelings for Anna aside, what’s important is that we find Peter and hopefully Maxie’s baby.


Anna: Elizabeth? Hi.

Elizabeth: Hi.

Anna: Um, how are you? Is Dr. Quartermaine still here?

Elizabeth: Monica? No, she’s gone for the day. Can I help you with something?

Anna: Um, well, actually, yes, maybe. You have access to all the hospital records, don’t you, on your computer?

Elizabeth: Well, it depends.

Anna: Oh, um, no. I-I don’t want any private medical records or anything. I-I’m just looking for a list of everyone, all the staff members who were on duty the night Peter disappeared.


Curtis: I think the reason that we’re stumbling over ourselves and making this harder than it needs to be is because we’re trying to figure out what the other person wants, when we should just speak for ourselves.

Portia: That’s what I’ve been trying to do, but it just keeps coming out wrong.

Curtis: How could it be wrong when we’re being honest with each other?

Portia: Okay. Okay. Okay, here it goes.

Curtis: Alright.

Portia: Now, I-I told you… that I’m afraid that you’re still on the rebound.

Curtis: Portia, you’re not —

Portia: No, no, no, please. Just let me finish.

Curtis: Okay.

Portia: And even if you’re not and you’re ready like you say you are, what if we’re just trying to rewrite history here, you know? Make up for mistakes of the past? It’s been almost 20 years since we met. I need to know that we’re not just, you know, picking up where we left off.

Curtis: Is that how you feel? Because… I sure don’t.

Portia: I’ve been thinking myself in circles ever since that kiss. And the only thing that I know for sure is that I could never forgive myself if I didn’t at least try.


Jordan: Stella, Curtis was the one who asked for the divorce. I agreed because I didn’t think it was fair that he get stuck in a marriage that he didn’t think was working.

Stella: I know you agreed to the divorce for his sake, but does Curtis know that you wanted to stay and fight?

Jordan: I tried. But at that point, we were both too hurt to talk it out anymore.

Stella: [ Sighs ] Baby, don’t you owe it to Curtis, owe it to yourself, to at least start the discussion and see where it goes? Do it now. Tonight.


Dante: I don’t regret that kiss. You, on the other hand, you ran away from me when we were standing outside of Charlie’s, and you’ve been kind of avoiding me ever since.

Sam: [ Scoffs ]

Dante: So if anyone were to be embarrassed, I would have assumed it was you.

Sam: No, no, hold on. First of all, I did not run away from you.

Dante: Yeah, you did.

Sam: I’m not 5 years old. And secondly, I’m — I wasn’t — I’m not embarrassed. If I was so embarrassed, why didn’t I keep it to myself?

Dante: Wait, uh, you did keep — you didn’t keep it to yourself, or you did keep it to yourself? You told somebody?

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Dante: Well, who did you tell?

Sam: Maxie.

Dante: Whoa, man. You told — you told Maxie that we kissed?

Sam: Well, I didn’t give a name. I just s– I just said “some guy.”

Dante: Oh, right. So now I’m just some guy.

Sam: Whoa, wait a minute! You can’t have it both ways. Wait. I mean, did you tell anyone that… we…kissed?

Dante: Uh, you know, I might have mentioned it to someone in passing, but…

Sam: Oh, in passing. Mm-hmm. Oh, I see. So, what am I, just an afterthought?


Brando: Is that a yes?

Sasha: Yes.

Gladys: Well, what a nice surprise. [ Chuckles ] I came down for some night air, and, lucky me, I found you.

Brando: Yes, the very definition of lucky.

Gladys: [ Chuckles ]

Sasha: Hi, Gladys. It’s a beautiful night, isn’t it?

Gladys: Mm. Yeah, it’d be even nicer if the lady who owns this place would be a little more generous with her family.

Brando: Mm. What’s Carly done now?

Gladys: Nothing. And that is my point. I was just telling Olivia Carly should be down on her knees begging you to take the top spot in the family business.

Brando: Let me be perfectly clear. If Carly or Jason offer me a job, I’m turning it down.


Elizabeth: Sure, I can help you with that.

Anna: Okay.

Elizabeth: Can you remind me again of the date Peter disappeared?

Anna: Oh, um, yeah. I-I’ll text you that, the date, and then the approximate time that he dropped out of sight.

Elizabeth: Okay. I’ll, um, get on it and get you that list.

Anna: Thanks. Hey. Hi, Chase. Finn.

Chase: Hey.

Anna: You’re still in the chair. When are you gonna get back on the job? Or are you gonna let everyone else pick up the slack?

Chase: [ Chuckles ] Thank you, Anna.

Anna: For what?

Chase: Being one of the few people who isn’t treating me with kid gloves.

Anna: Oh.

Chase: I may be in this chair now, but I’m still a cop.

Anna: Yes, you are.
[ Elevator bell dings ]

Chase: Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna — I’m gonna head home.

Anna: Ah, as a happily married man.

Chase: [ Chuckles ] And damn proud of it. Thank you.

Elizabeth: Mm-hmm.

Chase: We’re good, right?

Finn: We’re good.

Anna: How’s he doing, really?

Finn: Making progress.

Anna: Oh, good.

Finn: Not as fast as he’d like, but progress nonetheless.

Anna: Awesome.

Elizabeth: Anna is also making progress.

Finn: Mm?

Elizabeth: I’ll get you that list.

Anna: Thank you.

Finn: What’s that all about?

Anna: Um… so, my search for Peter has brought me right back here to G.H.


N’neka:: Sure you don’t want another drink?

Terry: No. I think my work here is done.

Curtis: There are no guarantees, you know.

Portia: Taking this risk, it does terrify me. But what’s the alternative, right?

Curtis: Playing it safe.

Portia: Well, that’s not you.

Curtis: It’s not you, either, or else… you wouldn’t have come here tonight.

Portia: So, when do we take this leap of faith?

Curtis: There’s no time like the present.


Dante: You are not an afterthought, Sam.

Sam: Okay, then what am I?

Dante: Uh, y-you’re — you’re you. You’re — you’re Sam.

Sam: [ Laughs ] Oh, my god. Wow.

Dante: What?

Sam: That’s so kind of you. “Sam, which rhymes with spam,” which is so flattering.

Dante: Listen, that’s not what I meant, and you know that, right?

Sam: Then what is it that you meant? What?

Dante: I meant — I mean I — I do not, um… think of you that way.

Sam: Oh.

Dante: Mm-hmm.

Sam: Okay, I see.

Dante: W-why? What — what are you — what are you saying? Y-you think of me — oh, god.

Sam: No. I mean, you’re —

Dante: Oh, wow, okay.

Sam: You’re just, um — what? You’re — you…

Dante: Yeah?

Sam: …Are Dante.

Dante: Oh.

Sam: Uh-huh.

Dante: Great. That sounds good. Um… it’s funny, though, you know? When I said it, it wasn’t cool, but when you say it, it’s totally fine.

Sam: It’s just because —

Dante: It’s a bit of a double standard, I guess.

Sam: You — you know what? I don’t owe you an explanation, so…

Dante: No, you know what? You don’t owe me an explanation, and I don’t owe you one, either, so then we’re even.

Olivia: Hey. Hey, you two.

Sam: Good. Fine.

Olivia: I don’t know what’s going on between the two of you.

Dante: Nothing.

Olivia: But it doesn’t look good to have a couple arguing at the bar. It makes people uncomfortable. So whatever you’ve got to say to each other, say it in private.


Gladys: [ Sighs ] I’m all for playing hard to get. I think it’s a good negotiating strategy.

Brando: Mom, listen to me. This isn’t a negotiating strategy. I’m — I’m not holding out for more money or a better job. This — I’m just not interested in working for the Corinthos organization.

Gladys: Why not?

Brando: I got a better offer.

Gladys: I see. [ Scoffs ] I mean, it’s not as if I care for myself. But as a mother, I want what’s best for my son, and you deserve more, Brando. You’ve earned it.

Brando: Well, thank you, Mom, but maybe you can look at it from my point of view and realize that the life that you’re proposing isn’t the life that I want. Everything… that I want is right here.


Valentin: If Peter has the baby, we can return her to Maxie or at least narrow down the search.

Brook Lynn: Maxie will get her baby back. I can promise you that.

Valentin: Okay, why so intense? What did I just say?

Brook Lynn: [ Sighing ] Sorry. Just thinking. Look, um, Valentin, you’ve been so great. Been an unbelievable, conscientious baby daddy. But, um, right now, I could really just use a friend.

Chase: The lady ordered a friend. Would you like a side of fries with that?

Brook Lynn: Side of fries, always. [ Chuckles ]

Valentin: I’ll leave you two alone.

Brook Lynn: Hi.

Chase: Hey.

Brook Lynn: Oh.

Chase: What did Valentin say to upset you?

Brook Lynn: Oh, nothing. We actually just had a nice moment.

Chase: Then what is it?

Brook Lynn: [ Sighs ] Did you ever go into something with the best of intentions and then later discover that it was just way too hard to follow through with?

Chase: Uh, hello? My fake affair with Sasha?

Brook Lynn: Right. Of course you understand.

Chase: Come on, Brook Lynn, I can tell you’re upset. And I’m not going anywhere. So talk to me. What’s wrong?


Finn: What about Peter?

Anna: Uh, Valentin and I, we just got back from that, um, trip to New York. We were following a lead. Might pan out, might not help us find Peter and the baby.

Finn: What if Peter never got his hands on Maxie’s baby? What if she’s somewhere safe? There would be some consolation, wouldn’t it?

Anna: Yeah. I don’t think it would fill the emptiness in Maxie’s heart. But… sometimes I think I would have done everyone a favor if I’d just put a bullet in Peter before any of this happened.

Finn: You don’t mean that.

Anna: Don’t I?

Finn: You’d have to live with what you’d done.


Curtis: So, um… I guess this is the start of…something.

Portia: A new beginning. But, Curtis, just —

Curtis: I know, I know, no. We’ll take it slow and…see where it goes.

Portia: Thank you. And good night.


Jordan: [ Crying ]


Gladys: I need another mai tai. Brando, be an angel.

Sasha: While you’re there, I would love a lemonade. Don’t worry, Gladys. Brando will never regret his decision.

Gladys: Isn’t that a coincidence? I made that same promise to myself. And I don’t know about you, but I always keep my promises.


Dante: Sorry, Ma, we were — we weren’t fighting.

Sam: No, we were actually just, um… agreeing to disagree.

Olivia: If you say so.

Dante: [ Sighs ] Man. She doesn’t miss a thing.

Sam: Hey, there’s… nothing to see here, right? I mean, one little kiss means… next to nothing.

Dante: Right.

Sam: Right.

Dante: Okay. Yeah, that was just, uh, just one of those, uh, one-off sort of things, then.


Brook Lynn: It’s been an emotional day, but, um, nothing for you to worry about. How was physical therapy?

Chase: Ah, not so bad.

Brook Lynn: Look, I know you well enough to know your private code, okay? When Harrison Chase says “not so bad,” that actually means something’s changed — for the better, am I right?

Chase: Let’s just say I-I broke a sweat today.

Brook Lynn: Okay. Keep being all cryptic on me. But, uh, whatever it is, just know it’s really good to see you smile again.


Finn: There’s something that —

Elizabeth: Here’s the information you asked for.

Anna: Oh. Thanks. Thank you.

Elizabeth: Everything okay?

Finn: Yes. Um, if you’ll excuse me, I have a patient to see.

Anna: Mm-hmm.

Elizabeth: I also have a patient I have to check on.

Anna: Oh, sure.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Anna: Hello?

Valentin: Hello. You make any progress in the search for Peter’s accomplice?

Anna: We’ve got this all the wrong way around.

Valentin: How so?

Anna: We’re not looking for Peter’s ally. We’re looking for his enemy.


On the next “General Hospital” —

Shawn (to Jordan): I have news.

Valentin (to Anna): Do you want to tell me your new theory?

Elizabeth (to Finn): If anyone can get rid of this problem, it’s Jason.

Trina (to Spencer): There’s really only one solution.

Nikolas (to Ava): Beautiful is the word.

Austin (to Britt): What do I get in exchange?

Jason: I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Carly.

Nina (to Sonny): She’s not the only one I’m here for.

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

Amanda: Michael Baldwin, this is my colleague, Imani.

Michael: Imani, good to meet you.

Imani: Likewise.

Amanda: Shall we get to it?

Michael: Alright. I understand this meeting has to do with the case against your client, Naya Benedict.

Amanda: Yes. We have some crucial new information — a recording of Sutton Ames revealing that he is responsible for the death of Richard Nealon.

Michael: So Naya falsely confessed to a murder?

Imani: I’m afraid so.

Amanda: It will all become clear when you listen to this. Hear the whole story from our grandfather’s own lips.

Michael: Hold on. “Our” grandfather? You’re sisters?

Imani: Surprise.

Michael: So you were your grandfather’s lawyer, and now you’re representing your mother, who is trying to prevent her father from going to prison. Have I got that right?

Amanda: You are 100% correct. Now, you always wondered why I, of all people, was asked to head up Sutton’s legal team and why I took on Naya’s case, given my lack of experience in criminal law. They’re the family that I never knew that I had, until recently. And now I am also aware that because of Sutton’s callous indifference and need for control, Hilary and I were forced to grow up without our father, Richard Nealon.

Michael: Dear god.

Amanda: But the secrets and lies stop now.


Tessa: Hey, Abby. Is everything alright?

Abby: I haven’t been sleeping well. I was doing some work, and, well, I nodded off and I had a terrible dream.

Tessa: What was it about?

Abby: I was up high on this bluff. I was with you and Nina, and I looked down and Mariah was in a field. I couldn’t see her face, and she was running, but we couldn’t get to her. We kept calling her name, we screaming after her, telling her, “don’t leave.” It was just so vivid.

Tessa: We’re all exhausted and stressed to the max since Mariah’s been gone. I mean, no wonder you’re having bad dreams.

Abby: I think it’s more than just stress.

Tessa: Okay, what do you mean?

Abby: As soon as I woke up, I had an epiphany. I’m starting to worry again that there is something seriously wrong with this whole Mariah situation.


Nate: Hey, Faith. What are you looking at so intently?

Faith: My summer reading assignment.

Nate: Oh, I hope you’re enjoying it.

Faith: Yeah, this book’s not half bad. As far as homework goes, this is as good as it gets.

Nate: Uh, you haven’t seen Elena by any chance? We were supposed to meet up.

Faith: She was here, but she had to leave.

Nate: Oh.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Nate: Ooh. Ooh, mystery solved. She was called in to work at the last minute.

Faith: Did you two have a date?

Nate: No, not really. We just, you know, wanted to grab some time with each other.

Faith: Same with Moses and me. I was thinking he might drop by. Not that we’re dating or anything.

Nate: Of course not.

Faith: But he shows up sometimes because he knows I’m here a lot.

Nate: I haven’t seen my cousin and I don’t know his plans. But I doubt Moses would miss an opportunity to spend time with you.


Moses: Things are way better between Faith and me.

Devon: Oh, yeah? So Lily gave you some good advice, then.

Moses: She did, yeah. We’re taking things slow, but at least now I know I won’t be stuck in the friend zone forever.

Devon: So is this why you wanted my help? Is this about Faith?

Moses: Yeah. I want to do something nice for her. Show her how much I like her without all that pressure. Lily told me that’s what girls like.

Devon: She’s right. But there’s plenty of things you could do to show Faith you care without being over the top. Where do I come into play?

Moses: Well, Faith’s favorite band is TigirLily. I mean, she lights up whenever she hears any of their songs, and they’re headlining the New Hope charity event concert in the park this weekend.

Devon: I think I know where this is going.

Moses: I figured you might. You said at breakfast that they’re in town already and that you’re having to meet with them later today.

Devon: Uh-huh. And I assume that Faith is gonna be at the concert ’cause Nick is one of the organizers.

Moses: Yeah, she wouldn’t miss it. But I was hoping you could make it even more special for her.

Devon: More special. Well, how about — how about two backstage passes?

Moses: Really?

Devon: Yeah, it’s done.

Moses: [ Chuckles ] Thanks, man. You’re the best ever. Seriously.

Devon: Well, I try.

Moses: Now let’s see if you can top yourself. I have one more favor to ask of you.

Devon: Alright, keep talking.


Michael: Well, that was quite something.

Amanda: Now, I’m aware that it is not a confession and it may not be admissible in court, but I believe that it opens your mind up to the possibility that Naya is not guilty.

Michael: Alright, I’m listening.

Amanda: This recording of Sutton makes it clear that he killed my father for one reason — to make sure the story of his illegitimate grandkids did not come to light, so he cared more about his reputation and his political power than he did his own family.

Michael: Well…what he said about Richard Nealon made my blood run cold. I can’t imagine how you felt. You have my sympathy.

Amanda: Thank you.

Michael: What you’ve both gone through, handling his case and now Naya’s —

Amanda: Yeah, it has been a journey. But for all the moments of shock and pain, there’s also been some moments of positivity. I met my sister and my mother, and I’ve learned to lean on the people closest to me for support. I even found support in some unexpected places. [ Chuckles ] Victor Newman himself.

Michael: [ Laughs ] Well, nobody can push someone’s buttons quite like he can.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ]

Imani: I got a real education watching the man.

Michael: Yeah. Do you really think Sutton forced his own daughter to take the rap for him?

Amanda: Perhaps. Or maybe he convinced her that I could have gotten her a lighter sentence than he would have received.

Imani: Not much comfort when she’d be doing the time, though.

Michael: Okay. I want to see justice done. When can you bring Naya to my office so that we can speak directly? So I can get my facts straight.


Michael: Obviously, the police and I are gonna want to talk to Naya as soon as possible. Is there a problem?

Amanda: I wish I could accommodate you. I desperately want this resolved, but we are gonna need some time.

Michael: Why?

Amanda: It is a gut-wrenching situation. Naya was willing to sacrifice herself for Sutton. To get her to recant, it’s gonna take some convincing.

Michael: Well, luckily, I mean, for you at least, I happen to be well versed in complicated family dynamics involving criminal activity.

Imani: Oh, something you studied in school?

Michael: Sadly, no. Personal experience.

Amanda: So you can understand why we can’t push our mother too much. But if all goes well, I’m sure she’ll be able to meet with you in a day or two.

Michael: Hmm, I can live with that. I want to make sure the right person is prosecuted.

Imani: So do we.

Michael: Alright. Look, I will issue a warrant for Sutton’s arrest. I will do what I can to prevent him from leaving the country, but I don’t have to tell you that this whole thing will work more smoothly when Naya comes clean.

Amanda: I’m gonna make sure that happens.


Faith: Taking off?

Nate: Yep. Listen, if I run into my cousin, I will let him know you wouldn’t mind taking a break from your reading.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Faith: [ Chuckles ] Thanks, but you don’t have to.

Nate: Is that Moses?

Faith: [ Chuckles ] On his way.

Nate: You two have fun.


Moses: She’s at the coffee house now, so I’m gonna head over there.

Devon: Alright, I will handle everything else.

Moses: This is gonna be amazing. Seriously, thank you. You’re the best big brother ever.

Devon: I know this. See you, man.


Tessa: You’re freaking me out a little. I thought that we had all agreed that once Mariah sent those texts, that we could stop worrying why she’s been gone for so long.

Abby: Have you?

Tessa: Honestly? No.

Nina: I’ve tried.

Abby: Well, after I had that awful dream, I went back and I reread all of the texts that Mariah has sent me. Remember when she sent that one, she was joking about how she was doing and she said, “Your child isn’t giving me too much grief yet.”

Nina: Yeah, and?

Abby: Okay, when has Mariah ever referred to the baby as “your child”?

Tessa: Never. It’s always been “our child,” “our baby,” ’cause, you know, group effort.

Abby: Yeah, so why the sudden change? Why now?

Nina: I think you’re reading a lot into just a turn of phrase. It might just be Mariah’s needing to, you know, back off a little bit.

Tessa: No. Abby’s right. It is strange. Something feels off to me, even if Mariah hasn’t come out and said it.

Abby: Maybe she’s having second thoughts about being a surrogate. Maybe she’s starting to rethink everything. Maybe she regrets it.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Nina: I’ll get it.

Tessa: If it helps, she’s never said anything like that to me.

Abby: Or me. I don’t know. Hey, maybe Nina’s right. Maybe I’m overreacting.

Tessa: Or maybe you’re not.

Nina: Look who I found on the doorstep.

Abby: Ben. Hi.

Stitch: This a bad time?

Nina: No, I think you’re here at exactly the right time. Aw, c’mon flowers.


Moses: So you’re gonna finish your summer reading two months early, and then what?

Faith: I’ll have to find other ways to amuse myself.

Moses: Okay, well, I think it’s time for you to put the tablet away and kick back.

Faith: Totally. Why don’t we get out of here, grab some sun?

Moses: Actually, you know what? You mind if we eat something first? I haven’t had lunch yet.

Faith: Sure. Want me to make you a sandwich? I know where my mom keeps the good — no way. Look who your brother’s with.

Moses: Whoa, isn’t that Kendra and Krista from TigirLily?

Faith: Oh, my god, it is. Only my favorite band in the entire universe. Devon knows them?

Moses: Yeah, he’s a music producer. He knows all the big names.

Faith: [ Exhales sharply ]

Moses: You know what? You want me to see if he’ll introduce you?

Faith: Are you serious? Yes!


Stitch: I understand why you’d feel disconcerted.

Nina: So do I. But why don’t we all just take a breath and think through this some more?

Tessa: Okay.

Nina: Mariah’s texts made it clear that she was done with us hovering. But from everything that I’ve seen, she’s been nothing but thrilled to be carrying this baby for you and chance. I don’t know, I just think it’s easy for us to be feeding off of one another’s worry, and that’s not the best way to go about this.

Abby: Remember the last time we started to spin out about this, and I said that our mind fills in the blanks when we don’t have all the pieces to the puzzle? Maybe we’re jumping to conclusions, and things seem right when they actually aren’t.

Nina: Yeah, I think that’s very true.

Stitch: And yet…

Abby: What?

Stitch: Given what you’ve told me about how Mariah expresses herself, I agree. The language from the text is odd. “Your child”? I mean, it implies she suddenly feels disconnected from the baby.

Tessa: Yes, exactly.

Abby: Okay, I’m not trying to over-think this, but maybe Mariah’s message, maybe it was her subconscious. I mean, maybe she was revealing more than she meant to. I mean, maybe all of this is just too much for her.


Imani: Sorry if I made Michael suspicious. I was freaking out when he asked to see Mom, since we have no clue where she is right now. But you handled it perfectly.

Amanda: Naya still hasn’t responded to my texts.

Imani: Mine either. Or my father’s. He promised he would let me know if he heard from her.

Amanda: We need to find her before the authorities realize that she’s missing and before Sutton gets to her, before he manipulates her like he usually does, get her to stick to her statement.

Imani: Even though I know my grandfather is guilty and I despise him for what he did, a part of me still can’t believe how this all played out. I can’t get over how he convinced our mother, who was fragile to begin with, to take the fall for him, to sacrifice her whole future. Makes me sick.

Amanda: I’m sorry. You know, as intense as this has been for me, I can’t even imagine what you are experiencing. You know, the family that you’ve known and loved your entire life just falling apart this way.

Imani: I had an incredible childhood. Filled with love and support. But no one ever made me feel as special as my grandfather did. Whatever goal I set for myself, that man was my biggest cheerleader, encouraging me every step of the way. It’s not like I thought he was a saint. Sutton expected perfection from everyone around him, and if you disappointed him, he could cut you down with just a look, make you feel terrible for days afterward.

Amanda: I was on the receiving end of several of those looks.

Imani: He demanded loyalty. My grandfather was controlling and self-serving, and his career always came first. Still, it’s hard for me to accept that he’s the same vicious man in that recording, that arranged to have someone killed, and then justified it. Rationalized it, saying he had no choice and it was “for the best.” Hearing him say those words, it just — it made it all real. [ Sighs ] I don’t know what my next step is, but I know this part of my life is over. Even if Sutton figures out a way to save himself — and make no mistake, he could — I can’t keep working for him. I don’t want my name being associated with his ever again.

Amanda: Sutton will pay for what he’s done. I will not rest until that happens. And I believe that you will wind up on your feet.

Imani: Damn right. It’s just a question of where I’ll land.

Amanda: Well, I might be able to help you with that.


Faith: This is so cool. I discovered TigirLily a few months back when I was going through a rough time, and your lyrics really spoke to me, especially “somebody does.”

Kendra: That is the best compliment you can give to an artist.

Krista: We love hearing that our songs mean as much to our fans as they do to us.

Faith: Would the two of you mind taking a picture with me? So I have proof that this actually happened and that I didn’t just dream it.

Krista: We’d be happy to. Get over here.

Moses: Here, I’ll take it.

Kendra: Alright, get in here.

Devon: You know how to work that thing?

Moses: Yes, sir. Alright, “TigirLily” on three.

Krista: Let’s do it.

Moses: One, two, three. TigirLily!

Devon: Nice.

Faith: Awesome.

Moses: Looks great, you guys.

Faith: Thank you so much.

Kendra: Of course.

Krista: We’ll be performing at the fundraiser this weekend. Will you be there?

Faith: Absolutely. My dad is Nick Newman. He runs New oHpe.

Kendra: Why don’t the two of you watch from backstage as our guests?

Faith: That would be so amazing.

Moses: Yeah, two yeses.

Kendra: Awesome. In the meantime, would you like to hear a preview of one of our new songs?

Moses: Yeah.

Faith: Oh, my god, yes.

Kendra: Alright, this is called “dig yourself.” I know you really dig yourself think the world would end without you baby, don’t you kid yourself not everything’s always about you if you could, you’d probably kiss yourself you’re the star of your own show I know you really dig yourself so much why don’t you dig yourself a hole? You can go all the way to China but I don’t know if you’ll ever find you someone who loves you as much as you

Devon: Whoo!

Faith: I love it!

Moses: Me too, me too. I can’t wait to hear the rest of it.

Devon: Well, hey, we were just passing through, grabbing some coffee on the way to the studio, so…

Faith: You’re busy. I get it.

Moses: But I will see you on Saturday?

Kendra: Looking forward to it.

Moses: Awesome.


Amanda: I’ve been thinking about starting my own law practice — the Sinclair Firm. But “Sinclair & Benedict” has a nice ring to it.

Imani: [ Scoffs ] Wait, are you saying —

Amanda: You can take the bar exam — finally — get your license and we can be partners.

Imani: You’d really want us to work together?

Amanda: I’m so happy that I found you, Imani. I never would have pictured myself saying that months ago.

Imani: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, that restraining order. Oh, god, I cringe every time I think about it.

Amanda: Yeah, me too. But we’ve really come so far. We became allies. Along the way, you know, you became a friend and now… you really feel like my sister.

Imani: Now here you are, getting all mushy over a job offer.

[ Both laugh ]

Amanda: Okay, um, alright, I’m sorry about that. Um, alright, how about this? I think we’ll make a pretty good team.

Imani: Agreed. Can I think it over before I give you an answer?

Amanda: Yeah, no, of course. Take all the time you need.


Stitch: Like you said, Abby, it’s tempting to over-analyze these things. And I understand why you’re concerned, but there’s probably no reason to be worried.

Tessa: If Mariah were in trouble, I would hope that she would reach out to me directly.

Abby: People don’t always know how to do that, though, when they’re feeling emotional or overwhelmed. And Mariah, she is so independent. You know that. I’m not saying that something terrible has happened, but I just — I wish that we could talk to her and ask her how she’s feeling. And if she’s struggling, I wish that Tessa would be able to go to her and help her, support her.

Tessa: You have no idea how much I want to do that. But she’s not taking my calls. Plus, her location services is off on her phone.

Stitch: There might be a way to trace her location from her texts. A specialized app or something. I know you don’t want to hassle the woman or crowd her, but if you want, I can look into it.

Tessa: Oh, my god, yes, please.

Abby: We wouldn’t necessarily have to do anything with the information. It would just give us some peace of mind.

Nina: Hold on, we need to talk about this and think about it long and hard. Okay, Mariah wrote that she will be back before her next doctor’s appointment. That’s in one week, and she said she didn’t want to be smothered.

Abby: You’re right, she did.

Nina: If Mariah really does just need her space, she’s gonna resent us for not giving it to her. Are we absolutely sure we want to do this? Doing it yourself


Nina: So, we’re all agreed? We’re gonna wait until the next time we hear from Mariah, see how we feel then, take it from there.

Tessa: I’ll do my best.

Abby: So will I.

Nina: It’s unanimous.

Stitch: If you change your minds, offer stands.

Abby: Well, now that we have bombarded you with our collective anxiety, is there a reason why you stopped by?

Stitch: I have some news. I’m finally heading back to Iowa.

Abby: Yeah. I guess this was just a visit. You had to head home sometime.

Stitch: Only short term. My real news — I’ve decided to take the job at Memorial. Chief of surgery. I’ll be moving back to Genoa City.

Abby: Ben, oh, my gosh! I’m thrilled. I had no idea they made you a formal offer.

Tessa: Sounds like a really sweet gig.

Stitch: I think it will be.

Nina: From what I’ve heard of your surgical skills, Memorial’s happy to have you, surely.

Stitch: That’s very kind.

Abby: How long will you be away?

Stitch: A few days. Just long enough to pack my bags and check in on Max.

Abby: You’re gonna keep him where he is?

Stitch: He’s used to his doctors and routine at his facility. I — I don’t want to uproot him. I feel like that’d be too traumatic.

Abby: Oh, that’s gonna be hard for you, though.

Stitch: It will, but it’s what’s right for Max. You know, and I can visit. It’s not that long of a drive.

Abby: Well, if there’s anything I can do to help this transition go smoothly, just say the word.

Stitch: I appreciate that. Thanks.

Abby: Well, you’ve been so helpful. It’s the least I can do.

Stitch: I will need to find a place to live.

Abby: Great! Let’s go house hunting. I can call my realtor and have her set up some showings for when you get back.

Stitch: There are a couple of furnished places I was gonna check out today before I got on the road. I know it’s short notice, but if you have time…

Nina: Her answer is yes. Yes! You need a distraction, and one just presented itself. Go.

Abby: Well, when you put it that way [Chuckles] Let’s do this.


Faith: I love this picture. I know I keep saying that. Sick of hearing it yet?

Moses: [ Chuckles ] No.

Faith: I’m totally posting this and making it the wallpaper of my phone and my laptop and maybe even my room. Kidding. Sort of.

Moses: Nah, do whatever you want with it.

Faith: I’m still in awe that I got to meet them. Backstage passes — can you believe it? Wait, what are the odds that your brother would walk in with… wait a second. That wasn’t a coincidence, was it? You set the whole thing up! [ Chuckles ]


Devon: Hey. How’d everything go with Michael?

Amanda: After I played him the recording of Sutton, he responded exactly as I’d hoped.

Imani: It seems like he’s willing to work with us.

Amanda: Yes, which clears a major hurdle. So as soon as Naya recants her phony confession, Michael can push for an investigation into Sutton.

Devon: That’s the best possible outcome.

Amanda: It would be, except Naya’s disappearing act. I can’t believe that we haven’t heard from her.

Imani: This isn’t like her. I have to believe that she’ll reach out soon, if only to let us know that she’s okay.

Amanda: I really hope so, because we are, you know, hitting a deadline here.

Devon: Have you guys heard from Sutton since his meeting with Victor?

Amanda: Not a peep.

Imani: That means he’s off licking his wounds somewhere, plotting a strategy to save himself.

Amanda: Yeah, he’s probably cursing the day that I showed up on Naya’s doorstep, blaming me for ruining his life.

Devon: No, Sutton ruined his own life the day he decided that your father was expendable, his granddaughters didn’t belong in their own family.

Imani: Sutton would never see it that way, guaranteed.

Devon: Nah, he’s gonna definitely fight back, and he’ll probably fight dirty, too.

Amanda: He will, and I’ll be ready.


Stitch: Okay, so you don’t think that was too impulsive?

Abby: Are you kidding me? You could look for a whole week and not find a more gorgeous apartment.

Stitch: Well, I’m glad you like it.

Abby: Yeah, it is fully furnished, right down to the pots and pans, so when you get back from Iowa, all you have to do is move in.

Stitch: I’ll have to learn the neighborhood, find the grocery store, best places for takeout. I already know of a dry cleaner’s right near the hospital, so at least that’s taken care of, right?

Abby: Are you talking about that little strip mall on Oak Street?

Stitch: That’s the one.

Abby: Yeah, that is now a parking garage for the new oncology wing.

Stitch: No! Don’t — my favorite Thai place is right next to the cleaner’s.

Abby: You’ll just have to find a new favorite place to eat shrimp pad Thai. Or you could eat at Society a lot.

Stitch: Well, there’s a thought. I just happen to know the owner.

Abby: Mm. Do you now?

Stitch: Yeah.

Abby: [ Chuckles ]

Stitch: You sure have gone from knowing all the best restaurants to owning the best of the best. It’s pretty cool.

Abby: Having endured my cooking, I think you should know that I went into business just so I could eat out a lot.

Stitch: Don’t sell yourself short.

Abby: I never do. [ Chuckles ]

Stitch: This has — this has been great. Uh…thanks for helping me find a place to crash. I hope I haven’t monopolized your day too badly.

Abby: Seriously? Apartment hunting — how could that be anything but fun for me?

Stitch: I guess it is a form of shopping.

Abby: Oh, yeah. [ Laughs ] Real-estate therapy. I should be thanking you.

Stitch: Worked out for both of us.

Abby: You know, this is the most normal I’ve felt in a long time. I’m very grateful.


Nina: It’s hard to be missing someone.

Tessa: These texts that Mariah sent, taking off for days, barely communicating, it’s just — it’s not like her. I wonder if we should’ve taken Stitch up on his offer to help try to find her. Look, I know. Mariah would be mad, but I can handle that. But this bizarre silence…

Nina: I can see it’s getting to you. I’m sorry, Tessa. I’m not an expert, okay? As much as I think we should give Mariah her space, I’m just the grandmother, you know? You’re talking about the woman you love, so it’s got to be your call. Yeah. I’ll be upstairs if you need me, alright?


Faith: I can’t believe you went through all that trouble.

Moses: Don’t worry about it. Devon already had a meeting set up with TigirLily, so it wasn’t that big of a deal.

Faith: Still. Plus, how’d you know I was such a fangirl? I don’t remember telling you.

Moses: You don’t have to. I pay attention.


Devon: Well, hey, I know the plan was to get a bite here, but after everything, you want to just take something back to my place and relax tonight?

Amanda: Honestly, that sounds like heaven. I will be checking my phone nonstop, but, yes, I would love to decompress.

Imani: I’m in. Who’s driving?

Nate: Okay, can I clear a room or what?

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] No, we are not leaving on your account.

Nate: Okay, well, I’ll try not to take it personally then.

Imani: Please don’t.

Nate: Everyone doing okay?

Amanda: For the moment.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Nate: Oh, I better take this. You guys enjoy your meal. This is Dr. Hastings.

Devon: Alright, I’m gonna go put in our orders. What would you ladies like?

Imani: Surprise me. Besides, I think I might want to stay and eat here after all.

Amanda: Imani, will you stop it?

Imani: What?

Amanda: You have that same look in your eye that you had at our cocktail party. Just flirting with Nate. Listen to me, Nate is dating Elena.

Imani: So? What’s the harm in a little innocent flirting?

Nate: Well, keep me posted.

Imani: Can I buy you a drink?

Nate: I thought you guys were leaving.

Imani: Not yet. Besides, I have ulterior motives.

Nate: Ah.

Imani: I’d like to get your advice on something.

Nate: Okay, is this a medical question?

Imani: Something personal.

Nate: Hmm.

Imani: It’s about Amanda.


Stitch: It’s later than I thought.

Abby: Oh, do you need to hit the road?

Stitch: Soon. I’ll take you home, and then I’ll leave from there.

Abby: No, no, no need. This is really nice. Being outside on this beautiful summer day, not dwelling on things I can’t control.

Stitch: You don’t have your car.

Abby: Well, I will just take a ride-share when I’m ready to go.

Stitch: Alright, then. I guess this is goodbye.

Abby: But you’re only gonna be gone a few days, right?

Stitch: I’ll be back before you know it. In the meantime, I hope you hear from Mariah. Something a little less cryptic.

Abby: That would be nice, yeah. [ Chuckles ]

Stitch: Take care, Abby.

Abby: Let me know when you get back to town.

Stitch: You’ll be the first. I’m — I’m gonna go.

Abby: [ Chuckles ]


Devon: Alright, I ordered the snapper with mango salsa for Imani.

Amanda: Yeah, you probably shouldn’t even have gotten her anything. Doesn’t look like she’s leaving anytime soon. [ Sighs ] Guess I got to give her credit for being bold, huh?

Devon: I wouldn’t worry. Nate’s grown. Went through a lot for him and Elena to get back to a good place, so I don’t think he’s gonna throw that away just ’cause someone new is smiling at him.

Amanda: Yeah, you’re probably right.

Devon: I’m definitely right.

Amanda: Well, I hope so, for Elena’s sake.


Imani: So, if and when I pass the bar, Amanda would like me to be her partner.

Nate: What? I hadn’t realized she planned on starting your own firm. Wow. Good for her.

Imani: It makes all kinds of sense for Amanda, but would it be right for me?

Nate: What?

Imani: [ Laughs ] I suppose that’s not a fair question, since you don’t walk around with a crystal ball.

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Imani: Or do you?

Nate: You know, I left it in my other jacket.

[ Both laugh ]

Imani: It happens. You’ve known Amanda longer than I have, so I’d like your take. How do you think it would be working with her — not as an assistant like I’ve been doing, but, like, as a full-on partner?

Nate: A dream come true. Amanda’s whip smart, forthright, ethical, driven. She also has a huge heart. Granted, not all siblings can work together, but if you’re up for it, I think it’d be a stellar opportunity.

Imani: You certainly make the idea of accepting this job and relocating here permanently very appealing.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Imani: Oh. Ohh. Sorry, I’ve been waiting for this.

Nate: No, go right on.

Imani: Thanks. Mom, are you alright?

Naya: I’m fine. At least for now. That’s why I’m calling. I knew you and Amanda would be worried.

Imani: She’s right here. Hold on. Amanda, guess who.

Amanda: Naya? Thank god you called.

Naya: I’m sorry I left without calling you girls, but I just panicked and ran.

Amanda: Okay, where are you?

Naya: It’s best if you don’t know. I don’t want you trying to find me.

Amanda: Listen to me, I understand that you are scared, but everything has changed. You need to come back to Genoa City now.

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

[Somber piano music]

[Knock at door]

Nicole: [Sighs]

Philip: Nicole? It’s me, Philip.

Nicole: It’s not a good time, Philip.

Philip: Let me talk to you, okay oh, please, it’s important.

Nicole: Just so you know, it’s not a barrel of laughs in here. Eric left last night.

Philip: I’m sorry to hear that.

Nicole: But not surprised.

Philip: No.

Nicole: Well, apparently, Eric didn’t wanna hang out after Xander’s star turn. “Happy anniversary, Eric. Oh, and by the way, I had sex with your slut wife.” Of course, it was so wonderful to have close family and friends there to share in that moment. [Sighs] You want a drink? I want a drink.

Philip: It’s a little early for me.

Nicole: I wonder what time it is in Africa.

Philip: I actually have something for you, Nicole.

Nicole: Well, if it’s not alcohol, I don’t want it.

Philip: Oh, I think you will be once you know what it is. How would you like to pay Sami back in kind?

Nicole: Sami?

Philip: You must know she was behind what happened last night. It reeked ofSami.

Nicole: Yeah, it was her kind of party. But what do you mean, “pay her back”?

Philip: I said, “pay her back in kind.” She blew up your marriage. This is the means to return the favor. Quid pro freakin’ quo.

Nicole: What is that?

Philip: You want to blow up Sami’s marriage? This is the detonating device.

[Suspenseful music]


Sami: And once this letter is gone, there is absolutely no proof that I slept with Lucas.

[Phone rings]

Sami: Hi, Johnny. No, no, this isn’t a bad time at all, of course. How are you, sweetheart? What’s going on? Lucas. What the hell are you doing
here?


Ciara: You know what? I am sick and tired of talking about it, big bro. Theo and I are getting married today, come hell or high water, and if Mom and Grandpa can’t make it, well, then, that is just bad luck, okay? It is not the universe conspiring against this wedding.

Shawn: Don’t be too sure about that.


Claire: Ben, do you really think this is a good idea?

Ben: I don’t know. But I do know this is my last chance, and if she marries Theo, those vows will be the ones that she remembers. And I’ll lose her forever.

Claire: And do you really think that if you take her back to the cabin, she’ll get her memory back?

Ben: If anything is gonna make her remember that she actually loved me and believed in me, it’s that cabin. That’s where it all started. I have to do this.


Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “Days of Our Lives.”

[Soft orchestration]


Theo: No, no, I get it. It’s fine. Have a good trip.

Lani: Bad news?

Theo: That was Chad. Something came up at DiMera, so he has to go to New York. So a couple of hours out from our wedding, and all of a sudden, I don’t
have a best man.

Abe: Mm. Well, I would step in, but then you wouldn’t have anyone to marry you.

Theo: Why do I get the feeling that there’s something really off about this wedding?


Ben: I shouldn’t even be talking to you about this.

Claire: Ben. We talk about everything. We’re friends.

Ben: Yeah, but what I’m talking about right now, it’s a crime. If it comes out that I told you about this and you didn’t turn me in, Claire, you could be charged with aiding and abetting.

Claire: Okay, Ben, first of all, I’m not gonna turn you in. Okay, and more importantly, what if I want to aid and abet?

Ben: What?

Claire: Ben, I think you’re right. And this isn’t just about you wanting Ciara back. Ciara, who has PTSD after what she’s been through, is about to do something that she could regret for the rest of her life without even thinking about the consequences. Ben, what if she marries Theo today? And then she gets her memories back–memories of you, memories of how much she loved you. Divorcing Theo would destroy him. But what would not divorcing him do to her?

Ben: This morning, Allie was telling me that she was trying to tell Ciara about our wedding and trying to tell her about how much she actually loved me, and she saw her have some type of reaction. And then she told Allie to stop talking. Now Allie thinks that Ciara is– is starting to remember this stuff, and that it scares her.

Claire: Ben, I love Ciara, but I also love Theo. For his sake, let me help you stop this wedding.


Ciara: [Sighs] Now what?

Shawn: Well, that’s Belle. There’s a crisis at DiMera, and she can’t make itto the wedding, either. And she said she’s really sorry.

Ciara: Great. [Laughs] You know what? This is not the end of the world. It’s okay. I didn’t even give people much notice to the fact that we were getting married, so I can’t get upset when some people can’t make it.

Shawn: Yeah, I mean, well, given everything that’s happened, I’m sure that everybody would understand if you felt that you wanted to–

Ciara: Shawn. Damn it, Shawn, I told you, I am not postponing this wedding, no matter how much you want me to! Just stop!


EJ: Page 18, line 7.

Belle: Got it.

EJ: Payment schedule. We’re going to need a whole new calendar.

Belle: Right.

EJ: Damn it–calendar. Ciara’s getting married today, isn’t she?

Belle: Oh, no, no, it’s okay. I texted Shawn, and I told him I wouldn’t be able to make it.

EJ: I’m really sorry. I completely forgot.

Belle: You know, I mean, this is a multimillion dollar, time-sensitive deal, and, uh, I’m on retainer, so. Do you think Kate and Chad can buy us some time in New York?

EJ: Not much. You know what I think? Our client’s last-minute attack of nerves? I think the timing was calculated.

Belle: Really?

EJ: Mm-hmm. They get cold feet at the last possible second, lean back, and see how much more they can squeeze out of us.

Belle: Huh. So much for negotiating in good faith.

EJ: Mm. I had forgotten how cutthroat business can be. People look you in the eye, smile, and stab you in the back.

Belle: Sounds like Sami.

EJ: Excuse me?

Belle: Actually, I think she was smiling when she stabbed Nicole in the back at the party last night.

EJ: You’re mistaken. Xander was the one who did the stabbing, and it wasn’t in the back. Very direct, very public.

Belle: Oh, come on, EJ. You know the law. Co-conspirator is just as guilty as the killer. And my sister–your wife– she’s the same conniving bitch she’s always been.


Lucas: And a cheery good morning to you, too, Sami.

Sami: What are you doing here, Lucas?

Lucas: I wanna talk to you.

Sami: We don’t have anything to talk about.

Lucas: What, come on, you don’t wanna do a post-mortem on that party last night? Come on, it’ll be great. According to Philip, you were amazing. You were–what, triumphant. You brought Nicole to her knees.

Sami: Well, that’s a position she’s familiar with.

Lucas: That’s funny; it’s not nice, but it’s funny.

Sami: I didn’t do anything except make sure that Eric found his way out of a miserable marriage.

Lucas: Well, don’t be modest. You did a lot more than that. I mean, you–you put public humiliation on a whole new level. You know, I’m actually surprised
you didn’t take Nicole down to The Square and shave her head. That would’ve been great.

Sami: I don’t know why you’re after me about this. I didn’t do anything. Xander’s the one who barged into that party and shot off his big mouth about what they–

Lucas: Oh, Sami, stop, stop. We both know you, and we both know what you did.

Sami: Okay, fine. Of course you know me. And you’ve certainly been part of your fair share of my schemes. So where does this moral superiority come from?

Lucas: I don’t know, I guess I’m just choking on the hypocrisy here.

Sami: What?

Lucas: You played God. I mean, you broke up Nicole’s marriage, and you’re actually guilty of the same sin she is. So what would happen if you and EJ threw a party, and someone announced what happened with us?

Sami: Okay, look. Let’s stay quiet about it, okay? We agreed to never talk about this again.

Lucas: No, you can’t do that. You can’t just push delete and act like it didn’t happen.

Sami: Yes, I can. And you can too.

Lucas: No, I can’t. I can’t because I’m not like you. In fact, Sami, I almost told EJ everything.


Nicole: “Dearest EJ, I’m thrilled to know that you’ve fully recovered and have decided to reclaim DiMera from Jake. I only regret that my current circumstances prevent me from cheering you on in person. Rest assured that I would’ve given you and Chad my vote.” Okay, so why did you give me this?

Philip: Just keep reading.

Nicole: “Since I was unable to do that, I’ll give you something just as valuable: The truth.”

Philip: Now you’re getting to the good part.

Nicole: “Please know that I take no pleasure in sharing this information. But you’re my brother, and you have a right to know that Sami, the wife you adore, has been sleeping with another man.”

Philip: You were right last night. Sami isn’t without sin, and now you have the proof.


Nicole: “I confronted Sami, and she finally admitted that she cheated on you with none other than Lucas Horton.” So Sami did sleep with Lucas, and Kristen found out, and she started blackmailing them.

Philip: And assigned them the task of getting Chloe out of the picture.

Nicole: Okay, so this– this letter is addressed to EJ. How did you get it?

Philip: Does it matter? Let’s just say it was intercepted. I thought you might wanna return it to its rightful owner.

Nicole: Mm-hmm. And what are you getting out of this?

Philip: Well, it’s always a pleasure to screw up EJ’s life. But the main thing is that with Lucas being Lucas, he didn’t just sleep with her; he fell in love with her all over again.

Nicole: Ah, poor guy.

Philip: Yeah, well, he is my brother, and I want him to be happy.

Nicole: Mm-hmm. So why don’t you give him the letter?

Philip: Unlike anyone else in Salem, he won’t play dirty.

Nicole: And that’s where I come in.

Philip: I’m gonna leave that letter with you. What you do with it is up to you.

Nicole: So I could refuse to stoop to Sami’s level and destroy this letter. Or I could, as you said, pay her back in kind.


EJ: Hypothetically, even if Samantha had something to do with the events of last night–

Belle: Okay, that’s like– that’s like saying, “hypothetically, two plus two is four.”

EJ: That doesn’t make her a conniving bitch. Her tactics might have been a little extreme, but she was mainly just trying to protect her brother.

Belle: Oh, come on. You don’t really believe that, do you? Sami did not give a second thought to what last night would do to Eric.

EJ: That’s not true.

Belle: Okay, EJ, come on. It’s a matter of public record that when it comes to Nicole, Sami will stop at nothing. I mean, just look at what– what she did at Henry’s custody hearing. She went so far as to have Jan Spears released from a mental hospital. This is a woman whose– whose sole purpose in life is to terrorize me and my family. This is a woman who tried to kill my daughter. And to Sami, that’s just collateral damage.

EJ: I think we should just get back to business.

Belle: Fine. You know, it will never cease to amaze me that a man as clinical and cynical and Machiavellian as you still can’t see Sami for who she really is.  And god help her if you ever do.


Abe: So what do you mean, “something’s off”?

Theo: Last night, I walked in on Ciara talking to Allie, and Ciara seemed really upset, and when I asked them what they were talking about, she said that she had just asked Allie to be her maid of honor. But neither one of them seemed very happy about it.

Lani: Women get really emotional about their wedding. Okay, don’t overthink that.

Theo: Well, and everyone keeps trying to talk me out of it, but I don’t know. I just–I think Ciara would fall apart if I backed out.

Abe: Well, we shouldn’t have butted in.

Theo: Well, Chad had kind of said the same thing, that we should wait, but like I said, I don’t know if Ciara could handle it.

Lani: Look. Ciara is gonna be fine because she has you. Right? So about this best man, I have an idea. What about Eli?

Theo: Would he mind?

Lani: Mind? He would be honored. He’s gonna meet us at the church, so I will just call and let him know.

Theo: Okay.

[Phone ringing]

Lani: Look at that. It’s him.

Lani: Hey, baby. Perfect timing. Um, I wanted to ask you– oh. Yeah, but, um–mm. I will let him know. I love you too. Bye.

Theo: What now?

Lani: One of his court cases got moved up, and he has to be there to testify. Otherwise, the perp would walk. He’s really sorry.

Theo: Yeah. Me too.


Shawn: Well, it’s a good thing you booked the chapel and not the cathedral.

Ciara: Oh, ha, ha. Oh, you think you’re funny. I know you think that’s funny, but I am getting really tired of your running commentary.

Shawn: Okay, I’m done. I’m sorry; I’ll stop.

Ciara: Okay, good. And where is Allie? She’s supposed to be here–hi.

Allie: Hi, I’m so sorry I’m late, but I ran into Chanel, and we just, um–

Ciara: Oh, you guys just stopped to get croissants?

Allie: No, Ciara, it’s really good news–her mom is backing down, and she’s chilling out with the demolition of the square, so–

Shawn: Wow, that’s great news.

Allie: I know!

Ciara: It’s also a great day to get married. Yeah, uh, just to let you know, my big brother over here has been making really rude, hurtful remarks about my wedding this entire morning, and I would really, really appreciate it if you didn’t do the same.

Allie: Okay.

Ciara: And I also wanna hear nothing about my last wedding. Like, nothing.

Allie: Okay.

Ciara: Yeah, last night, Allie tried to take me on a trip down memory lane, telling me how beautiful and wonderful my last wedding was, and how Ben was this perfect pillar of perfection, and–

Allie: Ciara. I’m sorry, okay? I will not bring it up again. I promise.

Ciara: Good. Thank you.

Allie: Um, well, let’s make sure that your hair’s perfect.

Shawn: Is there anything I can do to help?

Ciara: Just, uh, make sure that nothing else goes wrong, okay?


Ben: So you’re gonna go back to your house, you’re gonna text me when Ciara’s leaving. I’m gonna be around the corner on my bike. I’m gonna zoom in, throw her on the back, take off.

Claire: Okay, I’m not sure if this is romantic or just toxic masculinity, but that is a very dangerous plan.

Ben: That is what you just told me her dad did.

Claire: Yeah, back in the dark ages.

Ben: Okay, well, then I’ll find another form of transportation. Either way, you need to text me when Ciara’s leaving.

Claire: No, Ben, I can’t do that. Ciara does not want me there. Remember, I told you this. I tried to bash some sense into her with a wedding bouquet. Look, maybe there’s someone else.

Ben: You know what? Maybe there is.


Ben: What about Allie?

Claire: What about her?

Ben: She came by to tell me she’s gonna be Ciara’s maid of honor.

Allie: Yeah, I know.

Ben: Yeah, but Claire, she’s only doing it to look after Ciara. She knows this wedding’s a bad idea too. She’s worried about her.

Claire: So worried she’d help you kidnap her? I don’t think so. And look, what if you tell her what you’re planning, and she turns around and tells Ciara?

Ben: That’s the risk I’m willing to take.


Ciara: Um, Shawn. I don’t want Theo to worry. Would you mind going to the church and telling him that I’m gonna be on my way soon?

Shawn: Yeah, I mean, I’ll– I’ll text him right now.

Ciara: Oh, my god. Shawn, just go, please. I don’t want you standing there watching me obviously miserable on your phone, texting away. Please, just go! Oh, my god, I’m so sorry. I’m being a total bitch, huh?

Shawn: No, no. Listen, no. Come on. You’re not. No, you’re not. You’re just getting rid of the guy who’s giving you a hard time on your wedding day.

Ciara: Yeah.

Shawn: I’m sorry about that. Look, I really hope that you and Theo are really happy together. You deserve it. So I’ll see you at the church.

Ciara: Yes.

Shawn: See you there too. All right.

Ciara: Bye. [Sighs] So. Let’s get this show on the road.

Allie: Mm-hmm.

Theo: I guess I don’t have to have a best man.

Lani: No, you don’t. What about a best woman? I could stand up there with you. And I’m pretty sure I would be a better best man to you than a man could ever be.

[Theo and Abe laugh]

Theo: I think you’re right. Thank you.

Abe: Well, all right. Now that we have all that settled, I think we should go.

Theo: I’ll go get the check.

Abe: You know, I’m really worried about this. Ciara sounds pretty fragile.

Lani: I know, but that Theo is gonna stand by Ciara no matter what. So I think our job is to stand by him.

Abe: And keep our mouths shut.


Belle: All right. That should do it.

EJ: I can see why we pay you as well as we do.

Belle: Glad to help. Now I’ve got a wedding to get to.

EJ: I’ll pass all this on to Chad and Kate. Please give Ciara and Theo my best.

Belle: Yeah, will do.

EJ: And I know about your history with Samantha, and I’m sorry you feel the way you do about it. But I really think she was just trying to protect her brother. I mean, she didn’t make up anything about Nicole. All she wanted to do was make sure Eric knew the truth.

Belle: Well, I just wonder how Sami would feel if someone did to her what she did to Nicole.


[Pensive music]

Sami: What the hell are you talking about? Lucas, you promised me you would keep it a secret.

Lucas: I can keep a secret. I can–I told you, I almost told him, but I couldn’t go through with it.

Sami: Why didn’t you? I know how much you hate EJ.

Lucas: You’re right, I do hate him, but I couldn’t go through with it because I love you.


EJ: I’ve emailed you the revised contract. Crisis averted. Right, call me as soon as they’ve signed. Good work, Chad.

[Knock at door]

EJ: [Sighs] Nicole, what the hell are you doing here?


Allie: Makeup, perfect. Hair, gorgeous. And now all we need is the dress. Hey, hey, hey, hey. What’s up with the tears?

Ciara: Um, I don’t know. I guess I’m just really, really happy.

Allie: Right.

Ciara: It’s just that, um, ever since I woke up in the hospital, I feel like I’ve just been looking behind me, you know? And now I finally feel like I’m looking forward.

Allie: Are you sure? I mean, I know you said today is not about you or Ben, but–

Ciara: No, today is not about Ben. It is about me and Theo. Marrying him is all I want, so I’m gonna fix my makeup, um, and then maybe you can help me, uh,
zip up my dress.

Allie: Yeah.

Ciara: Okay.

[Phone rings]

Allie: Ben, hi. Um, I’m with Ciara. She’s getting ready for the wedding.

Ben: I know. That’s why I need your help.


Sami: Lucas, please don’t do this. I told you that I’m with EJ.

Lucas: Listen to me, I didn’t tell you that I love you again to plead my case. I told you I love you because that’s the reason why I didn’t tell EJ. I wanted to rub it in his smug, arrogant face, but I didn’t. I didn’t wanna do that to you.

Sami: You just can’t be objective about EJ because you’re blinded by your hatred for him.

Lucas: Hate doesn’t describe how I feel about him. But you know what, I’ll tell you who understands how I feel. It’s Rafe. Because he knows what it’s like to love and cherish you and loathe the man who treats you like property.

Sami: Okay, Lucas, I think it’s time for you to go.

Lucas: You know what, I’ll never get it. I’ll never understand in a million years why you love this man so much after he’s mistreated you all this time, but you do. You do, so because of that, I– I promise, I’m gonna keep my secret. I won’t tell yours, all right?

Sami: Thank you. And I’m sorry. I’m really sorry for dragging you into this, Lucas.

Lucas: I’m not. I’m not because I love you so much.


Nicole: Are you surprised to see me?

EJ: Not pleasantly. Nicole, if you’re looking for tea and sympathy, you’ve come to the wrong place.

Nicole: Well, I’m definitely not looking for tea. But I won’t say no to a martini.

EJ: And really, you need to start thinking about preserving your last few shreds of dignity. So if you’ve come to whine to me about Samantha, just don’t.

Nicole: I never mentioned that woman’s name.

EJ: Because it would be pathetic if you tried to blame her for your fall from grace. You were the one who married Francis of Assisi and screwed around with
Beelzebub.

Nicole: Oh, we do agree on one thing. What I did to Eric was wrong, and as the unfaithful wife, I deserve whatever happens to me.

EJ: Look, I’m very busy, so why don’t you go spill your guts to your old chum, Chloe? I’m sure she’s really good at throwing a pity party. Years of experience.

Nicole: Well, since you did mention Sami, I have to ask– what’s your take on what she did? Hmm? Do you think it’s okay to expose other people’s sins? That
that’s not playing God with other people’s lives?

EJ: Please, Nicole. You’re embarrassing yourself. You can’t prove Samantha did anything to you. And it’s not her fault that your paramour likes to brag about his conquests.

Nicole: Well. I’m having much more fun than I thought I would. And you wanna know the best part? The denouement, if you will?

EJ: I’m calling security. This is absolutely ridic–

Nicole: Your sister wrote you a letter, EJ.

[Suspenseful music]


EJ: Where did you get that?

Nicole: What difference does it make? As they say, read it and weep.

[Dramatic music]

EJ: [Clears throat] You’ve read this?

Nicole: Yes, I have. I’m an adulteress and a snoop.

EJ: This is not funny.

Nicole: Well, I’m having a lot more fun than I did at my anniversary party. And may I point out, at least you’re reading about your slut of a wife in the privacy of your own office. Eric heard about me at the pub in front of his mother and oh, his devoted twin, who we now know is no better than me.


Belle: Hey.

Shawn: Ah, you made it.

Belle: Hey. Is something wrong?

Shawn: Well, let’s just say that I walked in on Claire beating Ciara with her own wedding bouquet and, uh, everything went downhill from there. My mom’s plane got turned around, so she can’t make it. Doug injured his rotator cuff playing racquetball.

Belle: Aw. And?

Lani: Is it this way?

Shawn: And I’m just worried about Ciara, you know. I just think she’s, uh, wound so tightly, you know? How’s my smile?

Belle: Strained. Just like Abe’s.

Abe: Well, it’s good to see you guys.

Theo: Hey. Where’s Ciara?

Shawn: Uh, she’s on her way. Yeah, Allies’ taking care of everything.


Ben: I know if I just get Ciara alone for a little while, I can get her to remember. Allie, are you still there?

Allie: I am. And I’ll do it.

Ben: What?

Allie: I said I’ll do it.

Ben: Really?

Allie: Yes, really.

Ben: Oh, my god, Allie, thank you. Thank you so much.

Allie: I didn’t think that this wedding was a good idea to begin with, but after being with Ciara this morning, I know it’s not.

Ben: God bless you. Thank you again; I gotta go.

Ciara: Who were you talking to?

Ben: Allie’s on board. She’s gonna do it.

Claire: Great, but I just thought of something else. When Ciara doesn’t show up to that church, nobody’s gonna believe that she stood Theo up, so they’re gonna start looking for her.

Ben: Yeah, you’re right. We gotta find a way to stall them.

Claire: Well, I think I just thought of something. Nobody’s gonna start looking for the bride if the bride is standing right there in front of them.

Ben: I don’t get it.

Claire: Just listen.


Allie: Just a problem with Henry’s sitter.

Ciara: Oh, no, don’t tell–

Allie: I just have to run home so quick, but I will be there at the church.  You don’t need to worry about anything.

Ciara: Okay, um, so before you go, could you just zip me up?

Allie: Perfect.

Ciara: Okay.

Allie: By the way, the dress is gorgeous, you are gorgeous, and I will see you at the church.

Ciara: Okay, great. Thank you.

[Suspenseful music]

Allie: [Sighs] And she lived happily ever after.


Sami: Lucas, I– I appreciate what you’re doing, and I just don’t know when EJ’s gonna be back, and I don’t want the two of you to run into each other, so–

Lucas: I know, I know. I got you. [Sighs] Just so you know, if and when things go wrong between you two, I will always be there for you.

[Apprehensive music]


EJ: You’ve done what you set out to do. You can go now.

Nicole: Yes. I guess my work is done here. It has to hurt, knowing that it was Lucas, right? Seems you underestimated his assets.

EJ: [Yelling]

[Line trills]

EJ: I need a new phone number for my sister Kristen. I need it now, damn it!


Theo: Where’s Ciara?

Allie: She’s outside, waiting for Shawn to walk her down the aisle.

Shawn: How’s she doing?

Allie: I think she’s gonna be fine.

Ben: When everybody in this town thought that Vincent had killed you, I never gave up on you. I found you. I saved you. And I will never, ever forget that day.

Ciara: [Panting] No. No, Ben means nothing to me. He means absolutely nothing to me.

Ben: [Sighs]

[Apprehensive music]


Philip: Lucas. I was just looking for you. Where you been?

Lucas: I was just talking to Sami.

Philip: Did you tell her about the letter?

Lucas: No, it’s gone. What’s the point?

Philip: Actually, I have a confession to make.


Nicole: Well, Sami, you did it. You destroyed my marriage. Now let’s see how you like it.


Sami: Ha! Ej! Hi! What are you doing home so early?

Ej: I know. Just for some reason, I had this overwhelming urge to come home to my loving, faithful wife.


[Wedding march playing]

Claire: Surprise.


[Tense music]

Ciara: Um, driver? You just missed the turn. Hello? This isn’t the way to the church. Excuse me.

Ben: That’s because we aren’t going to the church.

Ciara: Ben?

Ben: Happy anniversary, Ciara.
