Summer: Oh, it is the perfect autumn night tonight.

Kyle: Oh, it sure is.

Phyllis: We seem to have misplaced your dad.

Kyle: Oh, he’s with Harrison. They’ve lined up all the toy soldiers in his room, and there’s an epic battle going on now.

Nick: I bet the two of them are having more fun than the rest of us combined.

Noah: I think you’re probably right. I could tell in Milan how much Jack loves that kid.

Summer: Oh, yeah. No, he totally loves being a grandpa.

Phyllis: You’ve bonded with Harrison, too.

Summer: Oh, my gosh, yes. No, he is such a doll. Honestly, whatever fears I had about being a stepmom have just completely gone away.

Phyllis: That’s great.

Kyle: Yeah, summer’s a natural at this whole parenting thing.


Noah: No one’s worried about you not having room in your life for Harrison. We’re more worried about you not having room in your closet for all the swag you’re bringing home from Marchetti.

Summer: Oh! No, okay, I have a simple solution to that problem. See, I wear them once, and then I just give them away.

Noah: Wait. Seriously?

Summer: Oh, my gosh, no! No, I wouldn’t do that. You are so gullible.

Kyle: He’s right, though. We need to build more closets for all of our shoes.

Summer: You are lying.

Kyle: Mnh, it’s the truth.

Summer: No.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Victoria: How dare you? How dare you bring that horrible man here?

Billy: Look, let me explain for a second, victoria Victoria: there is absolutely nothing that you can say that would justify you trying to hurt me this way.

Billy: Okay, let me explain, okay? Obviously gaines said something to you that got you very upset, and this is not the way I wanted you to find out about his past.

Victoria: I didn’t talk to gaines. And I don’t need to talk to gaines because I know the whole story.

Billy: I highly doubt that.

Ashland: I told her everything about the real ashland locke’s death, the fraudulent inheritance, all of it.

Victoria: This is exactly what you were hoping for — to find some deep, dark secret that was just gonna blow up my entire relationship.

Lily: I think billy just wanted you to know what you were getting into.

Victoria: Oh, please give me a break. If that were true, then you would be relieved right now that ashland confided in me. But look at you. You’re a shattered mess because you’re not the one that got to drop this bomb.

Billy: No, that’s not true, vick.

Victoria: You know how important this wedding is to me. Ashland’s in the middle of chemo. He is fighting so hard to make this a beautiful ceremony for me so that we can have cherished memories for the rest of our lives, billy. And you know what? You’re fighting to take it away. Why can you just not accept that I’ve moved on? For the love of god, just

[Sighs] Stop harassing us. And let me go!

Ashland: [ Sighs ]

[ Laughter ]

Summer: Oh, it is the perfect autumn night tonight.

Kyle: Oh, it sure is.

Phyllis: We seem to have misplaced your dad.

Kyle: Oh, he’s with harrison. They’ve lined up all the toy soldiers in his room, and there’s an epic battle going on now.

Nick: I bet the two of them are having more fun than the rest of us combined.

Noah: I think you’re probably right. I could tell in milan how much jack loves that kid.

Summer: Oh, yeah. No, he totally loves being a grandpa.

Phyllis: You’ve bonded with harrison, too.

Summer: Oh, my gosh, yes. No, he is such a doll. Honestly, whatever fears I had about being a stepmom have just completely gone away.

Phyllis: That’s great.

Kyle: Yeah, summer’s a natural at this whole parenting thing.

Summer: Oh, well, harrison’s so sweet, he makes it easy. I honestly cannot even imagine our life without him now.

Noah: No one’s worried about you not having room in your life for harrison. We’re more worried about you not having room in your closet for all the swag you’re bringing home from marchetti.

Summer: Oh! No, okay, I have a simple solution to that problem. See, I wear them once, and then I just give them away.

Noah: Wait. Seriously?

Summer: Oh, my gosh, no! No, I wouldn’t do that. You are so gullible.

Kyle: He’s right, though. We need to build more closets for all of our shoes.

Summer: You are lying.

Kyle: Mnh, it’s the truth.

Summer: No.

[ Laughter ]

Phyllis: Wait a second. Shoes are very, very important. They add to an outfit. Don’t discount shoes. Come on.

Summer: Yeah.

Phyllis: You know, especially when you work at marchetti.

Summer: Thank you. Thank you. See? There.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ]

Summer: And, actually, speaking of closets being full, my glass is not full, so, um…

Kyle: Oh, um, me?

Summer: Yeah.

Kyle: Well, I have a solution for that.

Summer: Great, great.

[ Chuckles ]

Noah: Oh, wait for me.

Phyllis: You’re very quiet. Are you okay?

Nick: All good. Nothing to worry about.

Sally: [ Exhales sharply ] Wow, I was so confident the whole way over here. Now…I’m a little nervous.

Adam: What’s your next move?

Sally: [ Sighs ] I guess just…corner victoria somewhere and convince her to try on the dress.

Adam: You might want to rethink that. Victoria sees you first, that’s what she’s gonna react to, and you’re never gonna get to unzip that garment bag.

Sally: Well, I wish I had a friend I could persuade to make the pitch for me.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Maybe there’s another way to go about this.

Sally: Hey, if you have an idea, I’m all ears.

Adam: Come on. Let’s go. Ordinary tissues burn when theo blows.

Billy: I hope you’re not letting the things victoria said get to you. There is nothing wrong with us trying to uncover the truth.

Lily: You — not “us.” And you took it a step way too far by bringing gaines here, to what victoria wanted to be a joyous, stress-free event.

Billy: Well, ashland kind of attacked my credibility. So I felt like I needed gaines here to tell victoria the truth because she wasn’t gonna believe it coming from me.

Lily: Because you thought ashland would lie, and you were wrong about him. Just admit it.

Billy: Yeah, I admit that i did not expect him to come clean about the multiple crimes that he has committed.

Lily: You did the same thing with me when we fell in love. You told me everything that you had done that you were ashamed of. So maybe not everything ashland does is cold and calculated. Maybe he actually loves her and what they have is real. But you don’t like hearing me say that, do you?

Elena: So, we heard you’re performing at the ceremony.

Tessa: Yes! I am so excited. Ah, this place — I mean, it blows me away. Everywhere you look, it’s just more beautiful.

Nate: Mm. You will love the view from the terrace in the morning.

Tessa: I’m so excited.

Nate: So, where’s mariah?

Elena: Yeah. Is she resting after the flight?

Tessa: Well, mariah’s not here. She decided not to come.

Kevin: Your timing is perfect. I was due for a break, and i believe you’ve heard me talk about how awful the coffee is at the station.

Mariah: Mm-hmm. In grisly detail.

Kevin: [ Chuckles ] Anyway, it’s gonna be great to catch up.

Mariah: Definitely.

Kevin: So, how’s everything going being back at work?

Mariah: Uh, it’s good, you know? I was a little nervous about interacting with a lot of people again, but everybody at jabot has been amazing about the whole situation. It almost feels like normal.

Kevin: That’s awesome. Well, it’s too bad you couldn’t take off a few more days to go to italy with tessa.

Mariah: Well, I could have. I planned to, actually, but then the baby got sick.

Kevin: Oh, no. Poor guy. Is he gonna be okay?

Mariah: Yeah. It’s nothing serious. I mean, it’s just a cold.

Kevin: Oh. Well, then why couldn’t you go with tessa?

Kyle: Hmm?

Summer: [ Chuckling ] No, i can’t do that. Hey! How’d the battle go?

Jack: The good guys won.

Kyle: Hurrah!

Jack: Harrison’s yawning like crazy, but he insists on a story before he goes to sleep.

Summer: Ah. Well, sounds like you’re being paged, daddy.

Kyle: Come with me?

Summer: Yeah, sure.

Kyle: Alright. We’ll be back.

Jack: See you around.

Noah: Any progress with aunt victoria? Where do thing stand? It seemed like it was a little less tense between you two earlier.

Nick: Yeah. Decided to stick around, do what she asked me to do, which is just give her some space. Hopefully she cools off.

Phyllis: With whatever’s going on with her, I think it has very little to do with you. You know, there’s a million things going on. You know, the wedding, ashland’s health, the newman/locke scenario. I mean, it’s just kind of landing on you, you know?

Nick: Yeah. Well, let’s just try and get through it on our best behavior.

Phyllis: And by “let’s,” you mean me, right? Why wouldn’t I be on my best behavior?

Nick: [ Chuckles ] Right.

Noah: I wonder where ashland and aunt victoria are.

Phyllis: Yeah. We haven’t seen them in a while.

[ Clears throat ]

Victoria: I was so supportive of billy when he moved in with lily.

[ Sighs ] I even bought him a damn houseplant. And this is how he reacts when i want to move on with my life.

Ashland: Sweetheart, you know my theory. Billy is still in love with you.

Victoria: Please don’t go there.

Ashland: What else could this be about?

Victoria: His enormous ego. Look, even if you’re right, what exactly does he expect to accomplish with this stunt? I’m telling you, I will never trust that man again.

Ashland: Billy is not our problem right now. Gaines is. I suspect that his end game is just to humiliate me publicly to feel like he’s had the last laugh.

Victoria: Well, we need to find them, and we need to have security throw them out.

Ashland: Okay, okay. Easy, easy. Leave that up to me, okay?

[ Door opens and closes ] (Drill sergeant) what a pleasant morning. It’s warm, but not too warm.

Mariah: Abby was talking about weaning dominic while i was gone, and I just thought that it was too soon, you know, especially since he wasn’t feeling well. And breast milk is supposed to be amazing for the baby’s immune system. I mean, I know he would have been fine either way.

Kevin: Well, it makes perfect sense that you would feel protective of him.

Mariah: Thank you for understanding.

Kevin: Come on, mariah. Of course. I have a baby, you know? Your whole perspective changes. Nothing’s more important than making sure they have everything they need.

Mariah: But dominic isn’t my baby.

Kevin: No, but you went through a lot together, which i can relate to, given everything I went through as a kid.

Mariah: I remember the stories.

Kevin: I know what it’s like to be locked in a small space for a very long period of time. And I know it’s not the same circumstances, and I don’t mean to pry, but if it would help you to talk about it…

Mariah: I’m doing okay with that aspect of it, you know, the trauma. I — I get a little jumpy if i hear footsteps behind me, and I don’t like too much quiet or being alone for too long. But I’m doing okay, you know? I can function.

Kevin: I’m glad to hear that.

Mariah: But I — I want to hear about you. How are bella and miles doing?

Kevin: [ Sighs ] You want me to brag about my kids?

Mariah: Yes.

Kevin: I’m in.

Mariah: [ Laughs ]

Kevin: Okay.

Billy: [ Sighs ] I don’t have a hidden agenda. I know victoria’s trying to push that because she’s in denial about how serious ashland’s crimes are.

Lily: Maybe it’s because they happened 40 years ago and she doesn’t think they’re relevant to the person she knows now.

Billy: Or maybe there’s another reason why she’s trying to protect him. Maybe it has to do with the merger. It’s the biggest accomplishment of her professional life, and she doesn’t want it to fall apart. I wouldn’t put it past her father pressuring her into it, either.

Lily: Billy, it does not matter why victoria is standing by ashland. She is, okay? So, your big plan to expose him has backfired.

Billy: Well, it might look that way on the surface. You saw her. You saw how defensive she was. Ashland’s crimes bother her, and they should because the guy is a liar and a criminal.

Lily: Billy, I need you to listen to me, okay? The wedding is happening tomorrow, whether you like it or not. And that is victoria’s choice to make.

Billy: So, what do you want me to do? You want me to just drop it, let her make a mistake?

Lily: Honestly, I think that maybe we shouldn’t even be here.

Nikki: Here’s someone you will want to meet. Leslie brooks, tessa porter.

Tessa: Oh, my gosh, hi!

Leslie: Oh, it’s so great to meet you!

Tessa: Yes, it’s so great to meet you in person finally. Oh, we’ve been video-chatting about what song we’re gonna do at the ceremony, yeah.

Victor: I can hardly wait.

Leslie: I’m so looking forward to performing with you.

Tessa: Oh, trust me — I am the one who’s excited.

Nikki: Now, I know you’ve been traveling all day and are very tired, but if the two of you want to go over some songs and get comfortable with each other, you’re more than welcome.

Leslie: Excellent. Do you know any standards?

Tessa: Jazz? Absolutely.

Leslie: [ Chuckles ] And I do take requests.

Nikki: Oh, well, now that you mention it, I might have a few favorites to suggest.

Victor: There you go.

[ Sighs ]

Adam: Hey, pop.

Victor: Hey, my boy! So glad you came. My goodness. Adam. Well, look at this. The three generations together. Let’s have a drink. Come on. Sit down.

Adam: Sure, dad. Noah. Oh, great job on the, uh, newman media branding package, by the way.

Noah: How’s it going, adam?

Adam: Fine. You?

Noah: Doing okay. Thanks for asking.

Victor: You know, I really appreciate that you all made the effort to come here and join us. And I really appreciate the fact that you’re trying to get along, you know?

Adam: Eh, nick — he’s not that bad.

Nick: I guess I can deal with him.

[ “Finally” plays ]

Your love gets in the way

of the bad things people say

my feet were broken and bleedin’

you washed my sins away

my heart needed dreamin’


I found somethin’ strong and steady

I know I’m ready

for someone like you


I’m runnin’ to someone great

who wants me to feel safe



this affair

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Damn you, billy.

Tessa: Is definitely worth keepin’

Victoria: I am not gonna let you ruin this night for me.

Tessa: Dancin’ like little kids

up on the ceiling

who knows where we are going

the road might be steep ahead

but you’ll always have my hand


I found somethin’ strong and steady

I know I’m ready for someone like you


I’m runnin’ to someone great

who wants me to feel safe


finally what can I du with less asthma?

Victoria: That’s odd.

[ Door closes ]

Sally: [ Sighs heavily ]

Lily: I mean, everyone is doing their best to cheer on ashland and victoria, and if we can’t join them, we shouldn’t be here. You know, the kids can fly home with victor and nikki.

Billy: That’s not necessary. Look, I am not going to apologize for trying to uncover the truth. And I really don’t think ashland deserves a bunch of credit because he came clean after feeling the pressure of somebody investigating him.

Lily: Then take all the credit, billy. It doesn’t change anything. She’s still gonna marry ashland tomorrow.

Billy: So, that’s it? Okay. I won’t intervene. I’ll find gaines and send him on his way.

Lily: Simple as that, huh?

Billy: No, honestly, it’s not gonna be that simple. Gaines has wanted his revenge on ashland for a very long time. So I’m gonna throw some more money at him and give him a first-class ticket out of here.

Lily: And what about the wedding?

Billy: I think we should go. The most important thing right now is johnny and katie see that their parents support each other. And victoria is gonna need some help when ashland’s health starts to deteriorate. And I would like her to know that she can count on me.

Lily: That’s quite an attitude shift. I’m impressed.

Billy: I hope you realize this whole time I was just trying to do the right thing. Victoria has been hurt a lot in her life, mostly by me.

Lily: I know it’s your way of making amends, in your own antagonistic way.

Billy: I hope you are not questioning my commitment to you. I love you. Which is another reason why we should go to that wedding — so you can see with your own eyes that I am not hung up on my ex. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Billy, I know that you’re a passionate man. And I know that you’ll go to extremes to take care of the people that you love. And even though it’s exhausting, it’s also very endearing.

Billy: I was hoping you were gonna say something more along the lines of “hot and sexy.”

Lily: Oh, well, I mean, that goes without saying.

[ Chuckles ]

Adam: Enjoying your evening?

Elena: Yeah. Very much so. You?

Adam: Ah. What’s not to like, right?

Nate: One of the loveliest homes I’ve ever seen, complete with a private concert by a world-renowned artist? There’s not a lot that can top it.

Elena: Hey, did you ever get in touch with billy after you guys missed each other at society?

Adam: Uh, I ended up tracking him down before I left genoa city. But the, uh, conversation didn’t go as well as I hoped, so i should probably steer clear of him while we’re here.

Nate: Well, given the size of this place, that shouldn’t be an issue.

Phyllis: Look at this guy. Look — he has the audacity to show up.

Jack: I’m sure victor’s glad he did.

Phyllis: Amazing. Does it bother you at all, what he’s done to his family? Like, at all?

Jack: Wh–

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I mean, victoria’s fine with him, but she’s treating nick like he’s the gate crasher. Seriously. This family.

[ Sighs ] They drive me crazy. Have I told you how crazy they drive me? Have I ever told you?

Jack: Uh, yeah, once or twice, yeah. Um…let it go. This will be over soon.

Phyllis: Not soon enough.

Nikki: So beautiful.

Tessa: Oh, thank you.

Nikki: Oh, my goodness.

Tessa: Thank you.

Victoria: Thank you so much, both of you, for your serenade together. You sound so beautiful.

Tessa: Oh, thank you.

Nikki: Well, they were just about to grace us with another song.

Leslie: Shall we?

[ “You’re the best thing” plays ]

Tessa: You’re the best thing

that’s happened to me

the key to my heart

you’re the best thing

that’s happened to me

I knew from the start

Victor: Hi, my sweetheart. Hi, my sweetheart.

Tessa: We complement each other

Victor: Everything alright?

Victoria: [ Sighs ]

Victor: What?

Tessa: Like sister and brother

like hops and malt

sugar and salt

fall and spring

yang and ying feeling stressed in your skin?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Phyllis: Hey, did you have another run-in with victoria?

Nick: She doesn’t want to deal with me, which is fine. I don’t want to make this situation about myself.

Phyllis: Alright. Well, she’s gonna come around. And she is going to owe you the biggest apology.

Nick: [ Sighs ] I know you don’t like my sister, but it’s not helping when you’re exploiting this.

Phyllis: Okay, well, I’m not exploiting anything. That’s not what I’m doing. I’m sympathizing with you.

Nick: I don’t see it like that.

Phyllis: Oh. Alright.

Jack: Hey. Let it roll off your back. Don’t take that personally. He’s upset right now.

Phyllis: That’s o– doesn’t make it any better.

Kevin: Oh, I mean, thank god for esther, right? Two kids, two jobs. I don’t know how we would make it work without her. And now that miles is walking, I mean, look out, world.

Mariah: Yeah, yeah, I guess he is that age, which means i missed his first birthday. Sorry.

Kevin: You don’t have to apologize. “A,” you were otherwise occupied, and, “b,” miles is very easygoing. He doesn’t hold grudges. You know, besides, birthday parties for babies are kind of pointless. They have no idea what’s going on. It’s really just all about the parents. So, my advice — if you and tessa decide to have kids, don’t even invite the babies. They just get in the way.

Mariah: And thank you for not sneaking in a “party-poopers” pun — because I could see it, and it was just right there.

Kevin: It was really hard. But I’m a classy guy.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Mariah: Oh. Hey! Tessa! Yeah. Hi. What time is it in europe? Oh, my gosh.

Tessa: It’s pretty late.

Mariah: How is everything going? Are you — are you jet-lagged? Are you feeling okay?

Tessa: Well, I, uh, slept on the plane, and, boy, am I glad that I did because this place is just so over the top. And I mean that in the best way. It’s just like — it’s something out of a magazine. Everyone’s, um, asking about you and sending their love. Oh, and I got to meet leslie brooks. Oh, she is so cool and funny. We got to rehearse, and she’s just really down to earth, and I’m just —

Mariah: Tessa, all of that, uh, sounds amazing, and I wish i could talk right now, but, um, I barely slept last night and I’m in zombie mode and buried in work and, um — we’ll catch up later, okay?

Tessa: Oh, yeah. Sure. Of course. I love you.

Mariah: Me too. Bye.

[ Mug thuds ]

Noah: Hi.

Tessa: Well, hi yourself.

Noah: You know, until i walked in before and saw you, I — I don’t think I realized how much I’ve missed you.

Sally: Okay. Mission accomplished. Or, at least, the first phase. Now we just wait and see how the bride reacts.

Adam: I really hope you are managing your expectations.

Sally: I designed that dress specifically to suit victoria’s taste and figure, so I have to believe that she’s gonna love it, at which point I will move in and make my final sales pitch.

Adam: You know, I really do hope this works out for you, sally.

Sally: Everything’s riding on this.

Summer: Oh, my gosh, you should have seen it. When I came back with water for harrison, the butler was in there trying to teach him how to pronounce “arrivederci,” and harrison kept saying “bless you,” thinking that he was sneezing every time.

Kyle: [ Laughing ] Please tell me you got it on video.

Summer: No, I didn’t, and i am kicking myself ’cause it was so cute. Oh, gosh.

Adam: Congratulations. How was the wedding?

Summer: [ Scoffs ] What is she doing here?

Adam: Sally’s my date. On the outside, I looked fine.

Jack: Wait. Adam actually said that sally is here as his date?

Summer: Mm-hmm. It’s a bit tacky, if you ask me.

Phyllis: Yeah, well, it is tacky, but, you know, it’s adam. He showed up with sally on his arm to the newman media launch party. Why would he not do the same here? Of course he brought her.

Kyle: Think victoria knew he was planning this?

Jack: No, I don’t think so.

Summer: You know, I doubt grandpa knew, either, because there’s no way he would want her here after the way that she treated me.

Kyle: If it’s really bugging you that much, just say the word. I’m sure victor will have her bounced.

Phyllis: Yeah, sounds like a plan. Let’s do that.

Summer: That woman is not worth the attention that we’ve already given her, so let’s not give sally the satisfaction of knowing that she’s gotten under our skin, okay?

Jack: I think your daughter has the right idea. You should do the same thing. Stay away from sally and any ice buckets you happen to see.

Phyllis: Oh, you know what? I think you have that the other way around. Sally should stay away from me.

Adam: You really enjoy riling people up, don’t you?

Sally: Everyone needs a hobby. Still, probably would be a good time for me to slip away to my room. Hopefully if your family decides to give me the boot, they won’t roust me out of bed to do it.

Adam: Mm. Well, I wouldn’t sweat it. My father and victoria have more important things to worry about.

Sally: I’m sure you’re right. Anyway, good night. Sleep well.

Adam: You too.

Victor: Yes, ashland?

Ashland: [ Whispering indistinctly ]

Kevin: Should we pretend i didn’t just hear you blowing off your girlfriend? Or do you want to talk about it? Or do you want to pretend that i didn’t even ask that question?

Mariah: It’s fine. Thank you for being willing to listen. And maybe someday I will take you up on that. But for now, I really — I just want to hear about the kids. Is bella still taking dance lessons?

Kevin: Yes. She just had a recital. Mad hatter’s tea party. All of these kids in in these elaborately adorable costumes.

Mariah: What was she dressed as?

Kevin: She was the dormouse! You know, cute pink nose and whiskers.

[ Laughing ] But, oh, there was this other little girl who was dressed as a sugar cube.

Mariah: [ Laughing ] Okay. What’s so funny?

Kevin: No, I mean, she was, like, this giant sugar cube, okay, with this tiny little girl inside. So, she’s dancing and all of a sudden she loses her balance and she falls onto her back, okay? So, all the other kids still keep dancing, and this girl is, like, flailing her arms and legs. Oh, my gosh, we laughed.

[ Both laugh ]

Tessa: So… how’s london? How’s the photography going?

Noah: It’s really well, actually. It’s almost more work than I can handle.

Tessa: Noah, that’s great.

Noah: Yeah. And I got three corporate commissions waiting for me when I get back.

Tessa: Well, here you are, making art for a living, and I’m singing for a living. I mean, how crazy is that? We can both say that we’re living the dream without being ironic.

Noah: Yeah, I hadn’t really thought about it that way, but you’re right. Although I think you may have been a little bit smarter than me in choosing which dream to pursue.

Tessa: Why would you say that? I thought you loved art.

Noah: No, I do, and I’m really happy to be in a field where I can be creative, but… you know, when people pay to hear you sing, it’s because they love your music. You know, they feel it in their soul. The art world is just… it’s just different.

Tessa: Well, how?

Noah: You know, a lot of it comes down to investment value. So there are people who buy my pieces because they intend to flip it, you know, like it’s a condo in west palm beach.

Tessa: Well, that sounds pretty cynical.

Noah: I understand the mentality. I come from a business background, but, yeah, it can be a little discouraging. You know, one time I actually had a client who offered to pay me to produce less. That way, the value in the pieces he already owned would go up. Supply and demand.

[ Both laugh ]

Tessa: Wow. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. That’s just really nuts.

Noah: It’s the nature of the beast, I guess.

Tessa: Well, if it makes you feel better, I don’t think a music career would be very different for you.

Noah: Oh, you mean people would pay me not to sing?

Tessa: [ Laughing ] No, no, that’s not what I meant.

Noah: No, I know. I know. Music’s commercial, too.

Tessa: Yes.

Noah: I’m just giving you a hard time.

Tessa: Yeah, you’re good at that.

Noah: But is it a career track? That’s the real question.

Tessa: Uh…stand-up comic? Working the club circuit? Well, I do think you have to be funny to do that, and you’re painfully serious, like, all of the time.

Noah: Yeah, you know, borderline boring.

Tessa: Ugh. A real snore.

[ Both laugh ]

Victor: I’m very happy to hear that victoria put billy boy in his place. Now we have to be concerned about gaines.

Ashland: It’s not gonna be that easy to get rid of him. It’s not the money at this point. He’s got a score to settle.

Victor: I don’t want you to worry about that. I’ll take care of it, okay?

Ashland: Look, even if we can keep gaines away from the wedding, he can still do damage to newman/locke, to the firm’s reputation.

Victor: It’s not gonna happen. Are you tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?

Elena: I know it’s late, but it’s heavenly out here.

Nate: Mmm.

Elena: And tomorrow it’s gonna be hectic and full of people.

Nate: Mm.

Elena: And you’re gonna be busy helping ashland. But tonight you’re all mine.

Nate: Mmm. I like the sound of that.

[ Soft, romantic piano music plays ]

Elena: Just when you thought it couldn’t get better.

Nate: It still can.

Elena: Mmm.

Lily: We never made it to the party.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] You distracted me.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Well, we definitely had more fun up here.

Billy: Mm-hmm.

Lily: And now we can enjoy the festivities. So I’m glad we didn’t leave.

Billy: ‘Cause of the beautiful music?

Lily: Well, I mean, it doesn’t suck.

[ Both chuckle ]

Lily: But seriously, I’m really happy that you’re able to see where you’ve gotten off track. I really admire your ability to course-correct. Not everyone can do that.

Billy: Is there anything else you admire about me?

Lily: [ Whispering indistinctly ]

Billy: I’ll take it.

Phyllis: Oh, good night, you two.

Elena: Night, night.

Nate: We’ll see you in the morning.

Phyllis: Okay. Is this seat reserved, or can anybody sit here?

Nick: I’m sorry I snapped at you. None of this is your fault.

Phyllis: That’s for sure. You know, it’s hard for me to hang out with your family. They don’t like me or trust me, and I feel the same way about them. But I do this for you. I’m here for you.

Nick: I was out of line. Won’t happen again.

Phyllis: I almost forgive you.

Nick: You gonna make me work for it?

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. I am.

Nikki: You haven’t seen victor, have you?

[ Door opens ]

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Where were you?

Ashland: Victor and I briefed the security team, and they are on top of the situation. They will find gaines, and they will remove him.

Victoria: Well, I’m just glad that we found out what billy was up to in time to put a stop to it.

[ Inhales deeply ] I just hope that everything will go smoothly for our wedding.

Ashland: There will be no more interruptions, and that’s a promise. And by this time tomorrow, you and I… will be husband and wife.

Victoria: [ Laughs ]

Victor: We are having a discussion, the kind a father has with his future son-in-law when he’s about to marry his daughter.

Victoria: Well, it’s a little late to be asking him what his intentions are, don’t you think?

Ashland: You’re right. Victor and I are determined to make sure there are no surprises, that this wedding goes off without a hitch, and that we can savor the celebration.

Victoria: Which means there’s something that needs to be dealt with that you’re not telling me.

Victor: Sweetheart, all you have to know is that I have any potential threat to you, to the wedding, or to Ashland under control. I give you my word, alright? So, you two get ready. I’ll see you at the party. Goodbye, sweetheart.

Victoria: You look pale. And my father doesn’t fool me. What is this really about?


Victoria: Well, should I ask Nate to come check on you?

Ashland: No, no, no, no. There’s certainly no need. Ironically enough, Billy was the one who came to my rescue.

Victoria: Billy’s here? I haven’t seen him yet.

Ashland: Yeah, he’s probably laying low.

Victoria: Well [Sighs] Given that he’s been flooding my phone with messages, I assumed that he’d be banging on my door the moment that he arrived. He seems eager to confront me with his news that he thinks i need to know.

Ashland: Well, there’s nothing Billy can tell you that you don’t already know.

Victoria: Well, mom told him not to come, but I’m actually glad that he did because i cannot wait to see how crushed he will be when he sees that he flew all this way for nothing.

Ashland: That’ll be very satisfying for you.

Victoria: I wonder why i haven’t seen him yet. Do you think he’s avoiding me?

Ashland: He’s probably mapping out his grand entrance or something like that. I say we don’t give the guy another thought.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] That sounds good to me.

Gaines: Wow. This place is something else. Maybe I’ll use some of my payoff cash to buy myself a little palazzo like this one.

Billy: We’re not here for a shopping spree, okay? So just slow down. We got a job to do.

Gaines: And I, for one, am ready to do my part. I have been waiting a long time for this — the well-deserved and ultimate downfall of Ashland Locke. So, how do you see it playing out?

Billy: Very carefully.

Gaines: You know, I was hoping for something dramatic, like humiliating him while he’s standing on the altar, waiting for his precious bride.


Jack: It is the beauty of family.

Phyllis: She can’t keep on holding this against him. He was just trying to help her.

Jack: I’m sure he feels justified in his actions. Look, at least now he realizes that it’s time to let go and accept the inevitability of this wedding, unlike some people we know.

Phyllis: Who? Billy?

Jack: Do not ask me to enumerate the number of times i have told Billy to let Victoria live her life.

Phyllis: Okay, I won’t ask you. Ah, I do respect how Nick will go above and beyond for someone he loves. I do respect that. But sometimes talking nice is not the right way to go, and i am afraid that’s what he’s trying to do right now.

Victoria: Something’s wrong. What is it?

Ashland: I’m through hiding things from you —

Victor: We are having a discussion, the kind a father has with his future son-in-law when he’s about to marry his daughter.

Victoria: Well, it’s a little late to be asking him what his intentions are, don’t you think?

Ashland: You’re right. Victor and I are determined to make sure there are no surprises, that this wedding goes off without a hitch, and that we can savor the celebration.

Victoria: Which means there’s something that needs to be dealt with that you’re not telling me.

Victor: Sweetheart, all you have to know is that I have any potential threat to you, to the wedding, or to ashland under control. I give you my word, alright? So, you two get ready. I’ll see you at the party. Goodbye, sweetheart.

Victoria: You look pale. And my father doesn’t fool me. What is this really about?

Jack: Hey!

Billy: Hey.

Jack: Look who’s here. When did you get in?

Billy: Not long ago. Hello, nikki.

Nikki: Hello, welcome. Where are lily and the kids?

Billy: Driver’s at the airport. They should be getting in any second. If you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to take care of something.

Jack: What do you think that’s about?

Nikki: Who knows? But I don’t like the sound of it.

Ashland: [ Sighs ] After you left earlier, I had a little trouble breathing.

Victoria: How bad was it?

Ashland: Well, it was really nothing. It lasted a short while. Not gonna get in the way of the festivities.

Victoria: Well, should I ask nate to come check on you?

Ashland: No, no, no, no. There’s certainly no need. Ironically enough, billy was the one who came to my rescue.

Victoria: Billy’s here? I haven’t seen him yet.

Ashland: Yeah, he’s probably laying low.

Victoria: Well [Sighs] Given that he’s been flooding my phone with messages, I assumed that he’d be banging on my door the moment that he arrived. He seems eager to confront me with his news that he thinks i need to know.

Ashland: Well, there’s nothing billy can tell you that you don’t already know.

Ashland: He’s probably mapping out his grand entrance or something like that. I say we don’t give the guy another thought.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] That sounds good to me.

Ashland: Right. I’m gonna finish getting ready, and then we can head downstairs and welcome all of our family and friends who came to cheer us on.

Victoria: Okay.

Phyllis: Seriously? We’re going to leave? I mean, I got this dress and — and, I mean, we should’ve just gone back home after milan.

Nick: I know, I’m sorry. I didn’t know I’d feel like this until after we arrived.

Phyllis: Alright. Okay, if you want to leave, we’ll leave. If you want to stay and keep on working on victoria, we’ll stay. I’ll do whatever you want. I’ll even keep, you know, the disparaging remarks about victoria to myself.

Nick: I’ve said everything that I can think of to sway her, and nothing’s working. Now, she said she’s not gonna kick me out, but I don’t want to be this dark cloud hanging over her wedding.

Phyllis: Alright, I’ll just do whatever you want. I mean, honestly, I’m only here because of you. We both know I wouldn’t have made the guest list otherwise.

Nick: Then let’s just leave.

Noah: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What do you mean leave? I just got here, dad.

Noah: I could tell how preoccupied you were at summer and kyle’s ceremony. Something wasn’t right.

Nick: Yeah. I didn’t want anyone to notice that, noah.

Noah: Well, you did a great job covering. Every time there was a quiet moment, I saw that look in your eye. And now, what, you guys are talking about not even staying for victoria’s wedding?

Phyllis: Um, you know, I’m gonna let you guys talk in private. Father-son time. I’ll do whatever you want.

Noah: Come on, man, talk to me. What’s going on?

Nick: I did some checking into ashland’s past behind victoria’s back. She found out about it and she felt betrayed.

Noah: Did you learn something bad?

Nick: It doesn’t matter what I found out. Didn’t affect her decision at all to go through with this wedding.

Noah: He clearly didn’t win you over.

Nick: I just need to accept the fact that my sister’s gonna make her own decisions without my input.

Noah: So tell her that.

Nick: I have tried. Nothing works. She refuses to accept my apologies.

Noah: Wait, so you’re running away because your feelings are hurt?

Nick: I’m not running away from anything, noah, alright? I just don’t want to be somewhere where I’m not wanted.

Noah: Well, that sounds like an excuse to me. Victoria probably just needs some time. If her forgiveness is really that important to you, stick around and fight for it.

Nick: Of course it’s important. I never would’ve looked into ashland’s past if I didn’t care about her.

Noah: Alright, so it might be hard for her to see that. Big deal. You know, if you taught me one thing, it’s not to walk away from a challenge. Figure out a way to overcome and work things out. Given there was also plenty of other meaningless father-son lessons I ignored, this isn’t one of them. And I’ll be really disappointed in my old man if he doesn’t follow through on his own advice.

Victor: Well.

Nikki: How are the bride and groom? Do I need to check on them?

Victor: They’re just fine. They’ll be here shortly.

Nikki: Okay, um…

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: I saw billy a few minutes ago. He seemed skittish. That’s never a good sign.

Victor: Baby, don’t you worry, okay? I have my eye on billy boy abbott. Trust me, nothing and no one will ruin this celebration. Nothing.

Jack: There seems to be some intrigue afoot.

Nate: Yeah, we picked up on that, too.

Jack: I just hope it has nothing to do with my brother.

Elena: Well, planning such a big event has got to be stressful, and a destination wedding in italy is probably extra difficult.

Nate: I wonder if I should go check on ashland.

Leslie: Ah, and where’s the happy couple?

Victor: My goodness, leslie brooks. How nice to see you. You look beautiful.

Leslie: Oh, after traveling all day, I think not.

Nikki: No, no, my husband is right. You look sensational. We are so thrilled that you will be able to be at victoria’s wedding.

Leslie: Well, I’m delighted that it worked out with my concert schedule.

Jack: Well, believe me, the pleasure is all ours.

Leslie: Jack abbott, how long has it been?

Jack: We have a lot of catching up to do.

Leslie: We do indeed.

Jack: First, though, I’d like you to meet a couple dear friends. Leslie brooks, dr. Nate hastings, dr. Elena dawson.

Victor: Just in case anyone asks if there’s a doctor in the house.

Nikki: Oh.

[ Laughter ]

Leslie: Well, I’m pleased to make your acquaintance.

Elena: It’s so exciting to meet a famous concert pianist.

Jack: Yes, leslie is one of genoa city’s own and the least likely to ever be a celebrity.

Nikki: Ahh, but her playing. When victor and I heard you in milan last spring for my birthday, we were absolutely transported.

Victor: It was a hell of a show, if you don’t mind my saying so.

Leslie: Oh, not at all, victor. I’m flattered.

Nikki: Well, we are just thrilled that you’ll be able to play for victoria and ashland’s ceremony.

Leslie: Well, I’m honored to be included. Your daughter deserves every happiness.

Jack: Well, I will drink to that.

[ Indistinct conversation ]

Jack: Hey, hey. What’s going on? You’re sniffing around here like a bloodhound.

Billy: Just a little confused. I guess lily arrived early and she’s here, and I can’t find her anywhere.

Jack: Oh, come on, the place is big, it’s not that big. And why would lily and the kids be avoiding the one place everyone’s gathering?

Billy: You know, jack, will there ever be a day that you are not suspicious of me?

Jack: I know how you feel about this wedding. I know you have doubts about ashland. It is not that far a reach to think you might be up to something.

Billy: Oh, look at that. Lily just texted me. She is here, and she’s lost, so I guess this place is that big,after all.

Phyllis: Where’s he rushing off to?

Jack: That’s a good question.

Victoria: Hey, listen. Are you sure you’re ready for this? I mean, maybe we’ve planned too many events. We’ve got this cocktail party, the big family ceremony, and then the reception afterwards.

Ashland: I am more than ready. I can’t wait to welcome our guests to witness the happiest event of my life. Are you ready?

Victoria: I’m ready.

Ashland: [ Chuckles ]

Nikki: Here they are, everyone, the bride and the groom.

[ Applause ] Yawns “okay okay, I’m up, I’m up!”

Victoria: I am so elated to have you here.

Leslie: Oh, well, I remember you as a young girl at nikki and victor’s first wedding. What a wonderful moment this is.

Victor: We have come full circle.

Victoria: Yes, we have. Um, leslie, may I present my fiancé, ashland locke.

Ashland: Enchanted.

Leslie: Oh. I am pleased to meet the man who’s put that radiant smile on victoria’s face.

Ashland: I believe I have every one of your tchaikovsky recordings going back to the ’80s. Each one more exquisite than the next.

Leslie: Oh, well, I don’t think I can even say that.

[ Laughter ]

Ashland: I know this may be a bit of a busman’s holiday, but could I impose on you to play one of my favorite pieces, “sonata rom*ntica in g major”?

Nikki: I love that one.

Leslie: Oh, well, it will be my pleasure to oblige as a gift to the happy couple.

Nikki: Oh.

Leslie: Yes, and I’m looking forward to accompanying tessa porter on your wedding song.

[ Chuckles ] And I hope you don’t mind if i let loose and play a little jazz on that exquisite piano.

Victor: By all means.

Leslie: As the evening progress.

Nikki: It’ll take me right back the allegro days.

Leslie: Oh, then it’s a deal. Aww. Okay.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ]

Victor: Shall we?

Leslie: Shall we?

Nikki: I’m going to sit here and listen.

Leslie: Yes.

Phyllis: Love the way she’s tickling the ivories. Alright. I’ll just shut up and enjoy the setting and the ambiance and the company.

Elena: A private performance from a world-renowned pianist. I hate to add more pressure. That speech of yours has a lot to live up to.

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Elena: Seems like everyone’s showing up big time for victoria and ashland.

Nate: Yeah, the bar just keeps getting higher. Luckily, I thrive on competition. And I’m starting to get inspired. Look how happy they are.

Elena: Yeah. Victor and nikki seem really happy, too.

Billy: Damn it, where are you?

Lily: I’m right here.

Billy: Hi.

Lily: Hi.

Billy: I’m sorry. I didn’t even know you arrived. You didn’t text me.

Lily: Yeah. That’s okay. Sorry, I was busy juggling the kids and luggage with minimal italian. And the staff told me they would alert you.

Billy: Yeah, well, no one told me.

Lily: Okay. Well, that’s fine. Kids are napping. They’re very cranky after the flight. And I was gonna get changed and meet you at the party.

Billy: Okay.

Lily: You seem less than excited to see me, which is very annoying given how much traveling I’ve just done.

Billy: I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I am thrilled to see you. I am, and thankful that you brought the kids with you all that way. They are going to love it here. It is actually spectacular. And I’ve missed you.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Okay. I missed you, too.

Billy: How’s mattie?

Lily: She’s good. She’s better. I mean, even though she’s brilliant, she’s having a hard time finding people on her wavelength, but it’s alright. I wish you were there.

Billy: Yeah, me too.

Lily: Whoa, whoa, wait a second, actually. Um…if you didn’t know I was here, who were you expecting to find when you came bursting into the room?

Billy: What do you mean?

Lily: Okay, you’re all flustered. What have you done now? Are you tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?

Billy: What have I done? You automatically jump to accusations.

Lily: I know how you get when one of your plans have gone awry.

Billy: Well, maybe I’m just out of sorts because I missed you and the kids so much.

Lily: No, you said that you had to fly here early to tell victoria some important information, so what was it?

Billy: I found persuasive evidence that ashland locke committed fraud. He changed camilla rhodes’ will and made himself the beneficiary.

Lily: Wow, that’s huge.

Billy: I know.

Lily: So how — how did you find this evidence?

Billy: Well, the evidence is a person. Jesse gaines.

Lily: Wait, you found him? How did you get him to tell you?

Billy: I paid him off.

Lily: How much?

Billy: A hefty sum.

Lily: How hefty?

Billy: A duffel bag full of cash.

Lily: [ Scoffs ] Ah, okay, go one.

Billy: Look, it was enough to get him to flip on ashland and tell me everything he knows about his criminal past.

Lily: And how long were you gonna keep me in the dark about this?

Billy: I couldn’t sit on it, lily. You were in california taking care of mattie, and obviously the wedding was fast approaching.

Lily: Yeah, no, I — I mean, I’ll admit, this is information that victoria needs to hear. What did she say when you showed her the evidence?

Billy: I haven’t told her yet.

Lily: Why not?

Billy: Because I lost the evidence.

Nick: I mean, I see your point. I’m still not convinced that staying’s a good option.

Noah: Alright, look. Have a drink. Get your head in the game, alright? I’m gonna go say hi to victoria. Excuse me, do you know where i can find the bride?

Victoria: Oh, my gosh, noah! Come here, give me a hug. It’s so good to see you.

Noah: It’s good to see you, too.

Victoria: I’m so glad that you were able to make the trip.

Noah: Are you kidding me? I wouldn’t miss it. You must be ashland. I’m noah newman. I’m nick and sharon’s son.

Ashland: I know exactly who you are, and it’s a pleasure to finally meet you.

Noah: Same here. You’re a lucky guy to win my aunt’s heart.

Ashland: Don’t I know it?

Noah: Excellent choice in best man, by the way. Nate, he’s — he’s done a lot for the family over the years.

Victoria: Yes, he’s been a rock for ashland, too, as he’s undergone his treatments.

Noah: Right. I hope that’s all working out. It’s your guys’ wedding celebration, so if you don’t want to talk about it right now…

Ashland: No, no, no, it’s part of our life together. In fact, it’s in our vows — “till death do us part.”

[ Laughs ]

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] My soon-to-be husband has a very warped sense of humor sometimes.

Noah: Sounds like we’ll get along just fine.

Ashland: From everything your aunt tells me, I believe you’re right.

Noah: I hope we find the time to get to know each other better. If not this trip, next time I’m home for a visit.

Ashland: Well, you never mentioned how charming your nephew was.

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

Victoria: I have to wonder where he gets that from.

Noah: Hey, don’t get mad, but I had to convince my dad to stick around.

Summer: Buona sera, everyone!

Nikki: Oh!

[ Applause ]

Summer: Hi! [ Chuckles ]

Lily: Wait, you lost the evidence? How?

Billy: Gaines is the evidence. I need him to tell victoria because she’s not gonna believe it coming from me.

Lily: Wait a second, are you saying that you brought gaines here to tuscany? Billy, what were you thinking?

Billy: My plan was to introduce gaines to victoria discreetly, and he could tell her everything he knows about ashland and then she can make whatever choice she wants, but now gaines is missing.

Phyllis: Oh!

Summer: Hi. Hi. Where’s dad? Hi.

Victoria: Oh, look at you!

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Ashland: Good to see you.

Victoria: Congratulations. You’re glowing.

Kyle: Oh, well, thank you.

Victoria: I wish I could’ve been there.

Summer: No, no, I get it. You were busy tying things up at work so you could take some actual time off, and I was just crazed with all the details on my end until the last second, so we just had a tiny little ceremony.

Victoria: Well, it doesn’t really matter what size it is, planning a wedding is a lot more work than you would think.

Summer: Right?

Victoria: Yes.

Summer: Well, I am just so happy that we can all be here to celebrate with you, and I am very much looking forward to being a guest and not the center of attention.

Kyle: And she’s not just talking about being a bride. Summer gets recognized on the street all the time now. We can’t go into a café in the fashion district without people checking out what she’s wearing.

Summer: No, I do not leave the house unless every hair is in place now.

[ Chuckles ]

Nick: I always knew my supergirl was gonna be a star.

Victoria: Well, it sounds very glamorous.

Ashland: Victoria and I are so thrilled that you guys are here. And most importantly, that you are taking such good care of harrison. Where is he, by the way?

Harrison: Father!

Ashland: Oh, buddy, look at you! Oh, my goodness! It’s so good to see you.

[ Laughs ] Mm. Yawns “okay okay, I’m up, I’m up!”

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Summer: I’m his only friend.

Kyle: [ Laughs ]

Summer: No, it was just us.

Kyle: No, yeah. My father…

Summer: No.

Kyle: It was just us. What do you mean? What do you mean?

Summer: Just us.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Jack: Well, looks like maybe nick and victoria have called a truce, at least.

Phyllis: Really? Wow. Nick was ready to leave earlier.

Jack: Wait, really?

Phyllis: Yeah, I mean, maybe noah convinced him to stay. He talked to him. Nick didn’t want to make the wedding uncomfortable, so… but I don’t know, maybe he changed his mind.

Jack: Well, I hope noah got through to him. I’d hate for you to have to leave already.

Nate: That was sublime, leslie, really.

Leslie: Oh, why, thank you. Thank you so much.

Elena: So I have to ask, does it ever get old, people asking you to perform when you visit?

Leslie: Oh, well, it comes with the profession. I mean, you’re doctors, so you know. I’m sure people are always asking you about their ailments, and would you refuse to give them medical expertise?

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Elena: That is a really good point.

Leslie: Well, I believe when you have a gift, it’s your duty to share it. I mean, besides, I love to perform and I’d do anything for victor and nikki’s family. Victoria seems so happy, and your ashland’s best man, so you must know him pretty well. What do you think of him?

Nate: [ Chuckles ] Believe it or not, we didn’t meet that long ago, so I don’t know much about his past, but I’m impressed with the man I’ve gotten to know.

Leslie: Well, from what i understand, victoria and ashland are devoted to starting fresh, writing a new chapter for the rest of their lives. I’m all for that. Why look back?

Nate: I agree. What really matters is where they go from here.

Nikki: It’s so nice having noah here.

Nick: It is, isn’t it?

Nikki: He’s grown into such a talented, confident young man. He reminds me a lot of you.

Nick: It’s funny you say that. He offered me some of the same wisdom I gave him when he was growing up, you know, after i tried and failed to work things out with victoria.

Nikki: Failed? What are you talking about? You didn’t fail. You’re still here. I assumed that meant you’d worked things out.

Nick: She relented and said i could stay, but I’m not sure it’s the best idea.

Nikki: Don’t you dare tell me you’re thinking about leaving.

Nick: Let’s just see how it plays out, okay? I said my piece, I did my best to convince her that everything I did was for sake. I can’t force her to be okay with it.

Nikki: Try to be patient with your sister. That’s my sage advice.

Phyllis: I don’t know, I’m not sure about anything. But now I want to stay, if for no other reason but to spend time with my daughter now. That wedding was gorgeous. She was gorgeous. That was a beautiful, intimate affair, unlike this newman event that’s filled with fireworks and…

Jack: I thought you liked a little drama.

Phyllis: I do like drama, but not like this. It’s like I can never say the right thing to nick about his sister, ever. I’m an outsider in that family, you know that.

[ Sighs ] The way they treat each other, it’s horrific.

Jack: Listen to me. You are not an outsider, certainly not with nick.

Phyllis: Okay, you don’t have to do that, you know that, right? What can I du with less asthma?

Jack: I’m merely being supportive of nick, that’s all.

Phyllis: I know, I know. You’re so supportive of nick and so supportive of us as a couple.

Jack: And that’s a bad thing because?

Phyllis: Because stop trying to overcompensate because of what you said before. I know you’re not trying to get in between us. I know that. You have nothing to prove.

Jack: Okay, I never intended to do that. Maybe you’re right. Maybe subconsciously, I was doing that. I only want what’s best for you.

Phyllis: Ohhh, that’s exhausting.

Jack: My having your back is exhausting?

Phyllis: Yes. Stop trying to humor me. Stop trying to be so careful, you know? It’s annoying. I know, I can be annoying. That’s okay. Let’s just go back to normal.

Jack: Whatever you say.

Summer: So I saw you talking to dad. What is with the mood he’s been in? ‘Cause he seemed really weird in milan, and it seems like he still is.

Noah: He and victoria aren’t in the best place right now.

Summer: Why? What’s going on between the two of them?

Noah: Dad looked into some things she didn’t want looked into, and now she’s totally put out by him.

Summer: You know, I am so surprised that they can still fight at this stage. You know, they have to know that they’re gonna make up eventually, so why put all the energy into it?

Noah: Come on, do you think people ever really grow out of sibling rivalry?

Summer: Um, I think we did.

Noah: Yeah, I’d give us a little bit more time, but…

[ Both laugh ]

Summer: Okay.

Noah: I don’t love being away from the family, but I really don’t miss the constant drama.

Summer: Yeah, I get it. I mean, I miss everyone from back home so much, but milan is amazing and it’s chaos-free and it is a really nice change of pace.

Noah: I can tell europe agrees with you.

Summer: Well, once I got to be with kyle again, it made all the difference.

Noah: Yeah, you married old lady.

Summer: Oh, no. Two weddings in a row. They’re gonna expect you to be next.

Noah: You know, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. The settling down part, that is.

Summer: Really? Okay, because I thought that you loved being the hip artist living in london, dating all the international goddesses. What?

Noah: Come on, we both know what it’s like to have parents who can never be content with one relationship for too long. Kind of makes you feel like you can’t trust anything will last.

Summer: Yeah. Yeah, I suppose so.

Noah: Yeah, I think that’s why you realized you wanted to be with kyle for the rest of your life. The whole roller coaster thing, it starts to get old.

Summer: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, I mean, kyle and I have been through a lot of turmoil — mostly my fault, ’cause of my indecision. But, yeah, we were on and off again for such a long time until we just figured out that that’s not what we want and we wanted to be together forever.

Noah: I really admire that. Hope to have it for myself someday.

Summer: Hey, you should come for a long visit. No, seriously, I have met so many amazing women that I can introduce you to. They’re entrepreneurs, designers. I — seriously.

[ Gasps ] Oh, and then you can move to milan and we can hang out all the time!

Noah: Yeah, I have been considering a change of scenery.

Lily: You actually brought gaines here to italy? Like, what were you hoping to accomplish, some sort of theatrical newsworthy exposure of ashland right before his wedding?

Billy: No, I didn’t want this to be some big showdown, okay? And I don’t even plan on publishing the information. I simply want victoria that she’s about to marry a liar and a fraud.

Lily: Right.

Billy: She can make her own choice after that, okay? But right now…

Lily: Okay, well, you have a problem. You lost control of the narrative along with the narrator. So are you telling me that gaines is lurking around the palazzo somewhere?

Billy: I’m assuming he is. I mean, it’s a big house. I searched the property. I searched everywhere. I don’t know where he is.

Lily: Who knows, maybe he went to go explore?

Billy: I don’t think so. I thought maybe victor had something to do with it, like his security team found him, but —

Lily: No, if that were the case, victor would’ve tossed you out, too.

Billy: Yeah. Look, gaines has an axe to grind. He despises ashland. My concern right now is that he has his own plan.

Jack: Hey, look, I don’t know if I said this enough in milan, but I couldn’t be happier for how you and summer have found your way back to each other. Here you are, starting a whole new life together.

Kyle: Thank you for making this move to italy work for us. I mean, that’s not just about jabot. I know you miss your new grandson, as well.

Jack: Yeah, I miss harrison and I miss you, but I’m incredibly proud of how you and summer have stepped up for that little boy.

Kyle: Summer and I love having harrison with us. It’s been fantastic.

Jack: I’m also proud of the way you have honored the bond between harrison and the man who raised him.

Kyle: Yeah, well, after everything blew up with tara and ashland getting sick, I wasn’t sure how harrison would do. I know he misses both of them, but every morning, that kid wakes up so joyful and serene, it’s just this miracle. Harrison’s happiness always comes first. Ashland’s someone who he feels safe with and who he loves. To be able to give my boy some time with him means a lot to me.

Jack: To see the man you’ve become, the father you’ve become, makes me smile. You know what really touches my heart? That you always put your son’s happiness first.

Kyle: I learned that from you, dad. Can’t thank you enough.

[ Taps on glass ]

Victor: May I have your attention, please? I want to welcome all of you. I want to thank you for coming from far and wide to be at this momentous occasion, the wedding of my beautiful victoria to ashland locke, a man I’ve come to know and respect. As you know, ashland came to genoa city for business, and he stayed for love. Ashland and I have known each other in the world of business for a while. Knew him to be tough and ruthless, almost as ruthless as I am.

[ Laughter ] But I’m not worried about victoria. She’s a worthy adversary. As a matter of fact, in her wheeling and dealing with ashland, she discovered that he was a good match for her. They combined efforts and their business brilliance and they merged two very powerful companies and created what is really an empire. An empire I hope will continue honoring the legacy of both newman and locke. Now, not only did they merge in the boardroom, but — and this is most important to me — I saw them be very loving with each other. It means a hell of a lot to me. You know that as her father, I’ll always worry, so as her mother. For that matter, one always worries about who one’s child falls in love with. And as a father, I can tell you that one never thinks that any man is good enough for one’s daughter. But you’re a good man, ashland. I’ve learned to respect you. So, without further ado, my beautiful wife, nikki, and I — as you know, we really cherish family — want to welcome you, ashland, into our family. And all of you will vow to support this union. So, in the words often spoken in this beautiful country, let us toast to the couple and to our family.

A la famiglia.

All: A la famiglia.

[ Glasses clinking ] Yawns “okay okay, I’m up, I’m up!”

Ashland: That was one heck of a speech, victor. It meant a lot. Thank you very much.

Victor: Ashland, I meant every word of it, okay? Now, let’s make sure that billy boy doesn’t ruin things, okay?

Ashland: I’m gonna go look for him now and make sure he doesn’t do any more damage.

Victor: Careful.

Gaines: Ashland. Many happy returns of the day.

Elena: Whatever you have planned for your speech, I think you’re gonna have to start from scratch. Victor pretty much covered all of the material I could imagine you saying.

Nate: Actually, he didn’T. It just so happens, when we were chatting with leslie earlier, something she said inspired me to come up with my own perfect angle.

Elena: Oh, really? That sounds great. Let’s hear it.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] I’m not a traditional best man. Ashland and I are from different generations. I don’t know him from the business world. We’re not former fraternity brothers or guys who grew up in the same town together. Ashland’s a new friend. Someone I’ve come to know under extraordinary circumstances, which speaks to the kind of man he is. His character and fortitude in the face of adversity. Who’s marrying victoria, someone I do know and want the best for.

Elena: I loved it. It wasn’t stilted at all or clichéd or trite. It was heartfelt and honest, just like the man giving the speech.

Nate: Whew! That’s what I was going for.

Elena: Well, mission accomplished. Now I guess we can focus on the romance of italy, this amazing wedding.

Nate: And my amazing date.

Ashland: What the hell are you up to, gaines, and what are you and billy abbott planning?

Gaines: Oh, and spoil the surprise? No, I’d rather see you sweating for a bit.

Ashland: You smug bastard.

Gaines: That was quite a tribute the old man just gave, wasn’t it? Maybe I should walk into that fancy party and reveal to everyone how you built your empire on deceit and criminal behavior. Or maybe I’ll wait and announce it tomorrow right before the ceremony. Or maybe I’ll make you so nervous that you’ll feel like you have no other choice but to call off the wedding. Wouldn’t that be devastating for everyone?

Victoria: Ashland, you out here?

Gaines: Enjoy the rest of your evening, lovebirds.

Victoria: That was jesse gaines, wasn’t it?

Ashland: I’m gonna call security and let them handle this.

Victoria: No, don’T. I know exactly how to handle this.

Lily: If gaines is working his own angle, what do you think he’s gonna do?

Billy: I don’t know. I mean, he was very disappointed that I didn’t plan on interrupting the wedding.

Lily: Okay, you cannot let him wreck the ceremony.

Billy: I know. I know. Victoria will never, never forgive me.

[ Door opens ]

Victoria: What the hell do you think you’re doing?

[ Knock on door ]

Jack: Hey!

Phyllis: Hey! Hi. Isn’t this gorgeous?

Jack: I could not agree more. Milan was wonderful in its own way, you know, the shops, the fashions, the restaurants, the art and culture. But, wow, everywhere you look in this place, it is gorgeous. The newmans have outdone themselves.

Phyllis: Yeah. Well, the palazzo’s beautiful.

Jack: So, I came to drop off this bag you left in the jet. My pilot had it messengered over.

Phyllis: Ahh. I thought I lost this. Great. Ah! I’m wearing it to the cocktail party.

Jack: I somehow doubt you were lacking in wardrobe choices.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] I have about a dozen dresses that I brought.

Jack: [ Chuckles ]

Phyllis: But I got this one special. I’m supporting my daughter’s flourishing career.

Jack: Of course you are. And you’ll look absolutely stunning in it. I have no doubt. So, where’s nick?

Phyllis: Uh, he’s taking the bull by the horns right now. I mean, we’re here against victoria’s explicit directions not to come. Let’s hope, uh — let’s hope it’s worth it.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Victor: Hey, my boy.

Nick: This place looks great.

Victor: Doesn’t it?

Nick: Hey, mom.

Nikki: Nicholas, oh, you’re here! I’m so glad.

Nick: Hey, dad.

Nikki: Does that mean that victoria changed her mind about having you at the wedding?

Nick: Uh, afraid not. But I’m not gonna give up. I wanted to talk to you two first to see if you could give me a read on vick before i approach her myself.

Victor: Hmm.

Nick: You think there’s any chance I can repair things before she says “I do”?

Nate: [ Sighs heavily ]

Elena: Huh. So, this is what you’re up to. We have this whole palatial estate to explore, and yet you’re here staring at your tablet screen.

Nate: I want to spend time with you. Really, I do.

Elena: But?

Nate: I’m having trouble coming up with my best man toast.

Elena: Ah.

Nate: I am no speechwriter. I don’t want it to sound stilted. It needs to be smooth, warm, and brilliant, you know? Something worthy of the power couple.

Elena: I can completely understand why you’re having a difficult time. You haven’t known ashland for very long. So you don’t have any old embarrassing stories or funny anecdotes to share.

Nate: Yeah, you’re not making this any easier.

Elena: That just means I will have to find a way to help. Come with me.

Nate: Where?

Elena: To find some romantic inspiration.

Victoria: Some of our guests have already checked in, and the rest are gonna be arriving right on time. So it looks like everything is set.

Ashland: Is it, though?

Victoria: Well, I don’t have anything left on my to-do list.

Ashland: Oh, that’s not what I meant. I have no doubt that all the arrangements will be in order. I’m more concerned about your heart. Now that you have time to let everything I’ve told you sink in, are you really, truly all-in for the wedding tomorrow? I just don’t want you to go through with the marriage if your main motivation is for some precaution to save our company.

Gaines: Wow. This place is something else. Maybe I’ll use some of my payoff cash to buy myself a little palazzo like this one.

Billy: We’re not here for a shopping spree, okay? So just slow down. We got a job to do.

Gaines: And I, for one, am ready to do my part. I have been waiting a long time for this — the well-deserved and ultimate downfall of ashland locke. So, how do you see it playing out?

Billy: Very carefully.

Gaines: You know, I was hoping for something dramatic, like humiliating him while he’s standing on the altar, waiting for his precious bride. Hi. So you’re the scientist here.

Billy: I understand you’re starting to taste your revenge against ashland, but we are not looking for pyrotechnics here.

Gaines: What’s wrong with a little fireworks? Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. The more painful and embarrassing the reveal, the better.

Billy: Jesse, I’m gonna be very clear. I am here to protect victoria. I do not want to cause her any more pain than what is necessary. I simply want to give her the irrefutable proof that she is about to marry a liar and a criminal.

Gaines: So, what’s your plan?

Billy: Hopefully I can convince victoria to speak with me alone. I’ll bring her back the suite, and you can fill her in with all the details. I want to give her a little bit of space and some privacy with no distractions or interruptions so she can come to her own conclusion, which I’m hoping is calling the whole thing off.

Gaines: Well, as long as the outcome is the same — locke humiliated on his big wedding day.

Billy: I’m gonna go find victoria. You wait here. Sit tight. Don’t go exploring. Don’t go showing your face. If anybody sees you, it could blow the whole thing up.

[ Door closes ]

Victoria: Trust me, ashland. One way or another, newman/locke will be safe.

Ashland: Uh-oh. I know that look. Now, what does my beautiful bride have up her sleeve? ‘Cause it sounds like you have some kind of a plan to protect the company.

Victoria: All I want to focus on right now is the love that we have for each other and our wedding. And I think everything else can wait.

Ashland: It means so much to me that you are still standing by me despite everything you now know.

Victoria: You know, I keep thinking about your childhood, picturing that anxious teen boy having to make those life-changing decisions all on his own, running away from an abusive home, leaving everything and everyone behind, and then losing the one friend that you had in the whole world in a car accident.

Ashland: Mm.

Victoria: Worst of all, you felt like your mentor, the women who meant more to you than your own mother — you felt like she betrayed you on her deathbed. The story — it just haunts me. It really does. So I can see how, even when you became the formidable ashland locke, that it followed you around everywhere.

Ashland: Yeah. That’s exactly how it felt. Hovering over me all the time like a dark cloud. And you do understand.

Victoria: Yes, I do. And I have come to terms with why you didn’t tell me. I — I know that you didn’t want to taint the beautiful relationship that we were building.

[ Sighs ] But now that it has, I just want you to know something. It’s okay. We’re okay. And you’re gonna have to trust me now. And by this time tomorrow, you and I are gonna be husband and wife. And nothing is gonna stop that now. Nothing is gonna stop that now.

Jack: You don’t have to worry about nick. He knows how to handle victoria. I’m just hopeful that she changes her mind and asks him to stay for the ceremony. She knows it wouldn’t be the same without her brother there.

Phyllis: You know, they’ve had so many arguments. So many. But this has gotten really out of control.

Jack: She’s loyal to the man she loves, just the same way he defended you to her over the years.

Phyllis: Well, that’s for sure. When she went after the grand phoenix, he saved my hotel. I will support him.

Jack: Okay, I just want you to know — you are the last person to convince victoria to change her mind.

Phyllis: Oh, I know that. How about you? She’s already respected you.

Jack: I am not getting in the middle of this. They are gonna have to work this all out themselves.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I wish she would just listen to him. It’s so crazy that she’s not doing that. Honestly.

[ Sighs ] You know what? They’ll work this out. They always do.

Jack: It is the beauty of family.

Phyllis: She can’t keep on holding this against him. He was just trying to help her.

Jack: I’m sure he feels justified in his actions. Look, at least now he realizes that it’s time to let go and accept the inevitability of this wedding, unlike some people we know.

Phyllis: Who? Billy?

Jack: Do not ask me to enumerate the number of times i have told billy to let victoria live her life.

Phyllis: Okay, I won’t ask you. Ah, I do respect how nick will go above and beyond for someone he loves. I do respect that. But sometimes talking nice is not the right way to go, and i am afraid that’s what he’s trying to do right now.

Nikki: Darling, you know how much we want to see you and victoria work things out. We’re just not sure how receptive she will be to your surprise appearance.

Nick: I can’t stay away, alright? It’s vick’s wedding day and i want to be here and I need to make my case to her in person.

Nikki: And I agree with you. It’s just that she’s dealing with so much prenuptial stress as it is.

Victor: Son, a lot of this was brought on by you digging into ashland’s past.

Nick: Right. Do I need to remind you that we were both investigating locke?

Victor: No, you don’T. The difference is I didn’t go to new jersey to dig up old skeletons.

Nick: I will accept responsibility for what I’ve done. I was trying to get the truth, but the only thing I want to do now is make things easier on my sister. Vick and I have been in lots of fights over the years. We always find a way to make it work. Are you telling me that we can’t do it this time?

Victor: All I’m telling you, son, is that I don’t want anyone to cause any problems on victoria’s happy day, alright?

Nick: Are you saying I’m a problem?

Nikki: Alright, now, this is victoria’s moment. The last thing she needs is to have the two of you arguing.

Nikki: Hold on a second. Are you two telling me you’re both on board with this wedding?

Victor: Yeah.

Nick: Mom, you’re willing to stand there next to victoria as dad is handing victoria away to this guy who’s been lying his entire life? Who got everything he has because he exploited a death? Really?

Elena: [ Chuckles ]

Nate: So, the trip to the little winery down the road was a great idea. But unfortunately, it didn’t clear my writer’s block.

Elena: What?! How can you not be inspired by that old couple who own the winery? Their story was so romantic.

Nate: It was, but I’m not sure how that relates to victoria and ashland. Look, our new vineyard friends met in elementary school, and they’ve been inseparable ever since, which is pretty much the opposite of the bride and groom’s story.

Elena: Okay, but maybe that’s your angle. Sometimes your first love isn’t always the love of your life.

Nate: Okay, but referencing people’s exes during a wedding toast — probably not the best idea.

Elena: Good point. Okay, so, what do we know about ashland and victoria? They met during work. That’s something the both of us know know a little bit about.

Nate: Sharing professional interests can bring two people together.

Elena: Yes. That means that they have the same passions and values.

Nate: Mm. Working long hours together, saving lives. Oh, wait. That’s us.

[ Both laugh ] Um…structuring deals, making massive financial transactions?

[ Chuckles ] Whatever it is victoria and ashland do with their day.

Elena: Your guess is as good as mine. I was always a lot more excited about the O.R. Than executive suites.

Nate: Maybe I need to do a little research.

Elena: Well, in the meantime, we have this fine italian wine, and this will get our creative juices flowing.

Nate: Mm.

Billy: Hey, you two.

Elena: Hey.

Nate: Hope you got an extra glass for me.

Nate: Billy. You made it.

Billy: I did, yeah. We had a smooth flight. How was yours? How was, uh, ashland’s private jet?

Nate: Ah, it couldn’t have been better.

[ Chuckles ]

Elena: So, billy, I hope your arrival here means that you’ve come to terms with the fact that this wedding is going to happen?

Nate: Yeah, there’s no way victoria’s backing out now.

Billy: Yeah, well, we’ll see. I, uh — I assume everything’s gonna go exactly how it’s supposed to. Now, if you don’t mind, I’m actually looking for victoria. Excuse me.

Nate: I get the feeling he’s not letting this go.

Elena: Yeah, and he’s fighting a losing battle.

[ Door opens ]

Ashland: [ Coughs ]

[ Breathing heavily ]

Victoria: Are you okay?

Ashland: Oh, I’m fine. It’s just a little cough.

[ Coughs ]

Victoria: Have you been taking your medication?

Ashland: Yes. I’m okay. Really.

Victoria: I really hope that the stress of the last two days hasn’t exacerbated your condition.

Ashland: I promise I won’t let anything slow me down or get in the way of reciting my vows to you.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Do you know what you’re gonna say? I mean, unless you want me to tell the minister that we’ve changed our minds about writing our own vows.

Ashland: Mine are written on my heart, and they have been for a long time. What about you?

Victoria: I wrote mine down on paper a little while back.

Ashland: Really? Can I get a preview?

Victoria: No, you may not. It’s gonna be a surprise.

Ashland: Well, then I will enjoy the anticipation.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Well, I think I’m ready.

Ashland: You certainly are. You know, I’m not sure if I’m ready to let you out of my sight.

Victoria: You won’t have to for very long if you hurry up and get dressed. Besides, losing a few moments doesn’t really matter. We’re gonna have so many moments together in the future. So hurry up and get dressed and meet me downstairs. I’m gonna check in on my parents and see if the rest of our friends and family have arrived.

Ashland: [ Exhales heavily ]

[ Coughs ]

[ Sighs ]

Jack: Hey. Don’t worry about nick. What’s the worst that could happen?

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] The worst that could happen is victoria’s security throws us out on our butts and it would be really awkward.

Jack: Yeah, that would be bad.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Jack: Yeah, well, just don’t be pessimistic. Put on your pretty dress, get ready for the cocktail party, and let’s hope everyone gets along.

Phyllis: Yeah.

[ Cellphones chirp ] Ohh! I don’t want bad news.

Jack: It’s not bad news. Take a look.

Phyllis: Ooh! The wedding pictures from summer and kyle’s wedding. She is stunning. They look so happy. Wow. You know, somebody may call me biased, but, uh, ashland and victoria’s splashy affair doesn’t hold a candle to this beautiful, intimate ceremony, even with this whole palazzo backdrop.

Jack: I’m sure both weddings will be perfect… in their own way.

[ Door closes ]

Nick: I’m sorry, but I don’t get it. I don’t know how you two can be supportive of this wedding. And, dad, it wasn’t that long ago that you yourself were looking into ashland’s past. I thought we were on the same page about this. What changed?

Victor: What changed, son, is that ashland confessed, okay? He came clean about his identity.

Nick: He only did that because I confronted him with the truth. He told us half the story, and he left out the part where he left his best friend in the world to die in a burning car. Who the hell does something like that?

Nikki: At that point, he thought his friend was already gone, beyond help.

Nick: I — I don’t know how you can make excuses for him.

Victor: Son, let’s put an end to this. I’m very appreciative of the fact that you are concerned about your sister’s well-being. But kindly let this go now, alright? Accept her decision. That’s it.

[ Footsteps approaching ] People everywhere living with type 2 diabetes

Nikki: Nicholas came here because he wants to make peace. You should hear him out, darling.

Victor: That alright with you, my sweetheart?

Victoria: It’s fine. There’s nothing that nicholas can say or do that’s going to upset me more than I already am.

Victor: You two work it out, okay?

Victoria: Okay, nicholas. I hope that you’re not going to try to tell me that I need to stop this wedding again because that’s definitely not going to happen.

Victor: [ Sighs heavily ] I’m afraid nicholas won’t let this go. The last thing I want him to do is to ruin this special day for our daughter.

Nikki: I understand why you’re worried, but I believe that nicholas will put his sister’s happiness first.

Victor: I only hope you’re right.

Nikki: Believe me. I was very upset when I heard that she had disinvited him, but I have to respect that. My biggest concern right now is that nicholas doesn’t yet know of ashland’s latest surprise.

Victor: Sweetheart, the fewer people know about this, the better, okay?

Nikki: [ Sighs ] Well, this last confession of his was atrocious. Forging your mentor’s will? If nicholas learns about that before the ceremony, it will only add fuel to his fire.

Victor: Sweetheart, the most important thing is that victoria has made peace with ashland. She’s okay with it, alright? That’s what’s important. The other secret needs to stay buried, and I will see to it that it does.

Nick: I promise you I’m not here to try to and stop your wedding.

Victoria: Right. You call it showing your concern, but your goal is the same.

Nick: Look, I get where you’re coming from, and I hate it that this has come between us. It was never my intention to betray you.

Victoria: But that’s exactly what you did.

Nick: Vick, I swear to you, i was hoping that I wouldn’t find anything shady about ashland.

Victoria: But you did. And then you just couldn’t let it go.

Nick: Because I’m worried about you. But I’ve had a lot of time to think about it, okay? And I guess I can understand… why ashland would work so hard to keep, you know, a painful memory a secret.

Victoria: But you still judge him for what he did.

Nick: Look, if me telling you the truth doesn’t make you change your mind about marrying this guy, I’m not gonna try and convince you otherwise. I have to respect your decision. Now, I’m not gonna tell you that I like it or that I’m ever gonna be able to trust this guy.

Victoria: Oh, that’s — that’s really very funny since you have completely destroyed my trust in you. You showed no regard for my feelings or for my wishes. How am I ever supposed to confide in you again?

Nick: All I can say is that i truly believed I was acting in your best interest. I don’t want to break this trust that we have. But I need you to know, vick, that I would never do anything to hurt you on purpose.

Victoria: Your apology doesn’t even begin to make up for what you did.

Nick: So, you’re saying you can’t even forgive me a little bit? It’s your wedding day. Now I’d really like to be here for my sister.

Ashland: [ Coughing ]

[ Gasping ]

[ Coughing ]

[ Breathing heavily ]

[ Coughs ]

Billy: Looks like you could use some help.

Ashland: [ Coughs ]

Billy: What can I do?

Ashland: [ Breathing heavily ] Need long-lasting freshness?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Nick: Vick, I won’t say another word about ashland, alright? If you’re willing to put his past behind you, I’ll do the same.

Victoria: I appreciate the effort that you’re making, but i can tell that you’re still holding back about how you really feel about my fiancé. And that is the last thing that I need the day before my wedding. That being said, while I don’t forgive you, I won’t tell you to go, either.

Nick: What does that even mean?

Victoria: Our parents want us to be happy. They want this to be a celebration of family harmony. So, if you want to stick around for the reception and the wedding, that’s your choice.

Nick: So, you’ll let me stay for their sake?

Victoria: Dad gave me this palazzo as a wedding gift, and i am gonna make this a happy event for him. And you know how mom gets when we’re not getting along.

Nick: It’s your wedding. Your opinion is the only one that matters to me. Do you want me at this ceremony or not?

Victoria: Look, my focus is gonna be completely on ashland. If you happen to be in the crowd, I doubt I’ll even notice it.

Nick: [ Scoffs ] It’s not even an invitation, is it?

Victoria: I told you, you were welcome to come. What more do you expect from me?

Nick: I want to know where things stand with us.

Victoria: I’m not gonna talk with you about where we stand anymore. You hurt me, nicholas. It’s not my job to absolve you or to make you feel better. My only focus now is on ashland and my wedding.

Nick: [ Sighs ]

Billy: I know nate is on the premises. Maybe I should give him a call.

Ashland: That won’t be necessary. I’m fine.

Billy: You don’t look fine, ashland.

Ashland: I could use a glass of water.

[ Coughs ]

[ Breathing deeply ]

Billy: I still think calling nate would be a good idea.

Ashland: [ Coughs ] Thank you. You know, I’m surprised that you had the nerve to show your face. I heard that nikki urged you to, uh, gracefully bow out.

Billy: I think we both knew that that wasn’t gonna happen. I wasn’t gonna miss the most spectacular event of the year.

Ashland: You know, just in case you have any plans to disrupt the wedding, there’s something you should know.

Billy: Okay. Go ahead.

Victor: What the hell are you doing here?

Nikki: So, how did it go with nicholas? Were you two able to resolve your issues?

Victoria: Well, I didn’t kick him out, but I’m not exactly thrilled that he’s here, either.

Nikki: Well, I am. You made the right decision letting him stay.

Victoria: Jack!

Nikki: Oh, you made it!

Victoria: Welcome!

Jack: What a spectacular palazzo, an ideal location for a wedding.

Victoria: Well, I also heard that summer and kyle’s wedding was very special. I wish I had been able to make it.

Jack: It was wonderful, you were missed, but it seemed like you had your hands full.

Victoria: Yes, maybe just a little. But I’m glad that they’ll be coming here so I can congratulate them in person.

Jack: And they’ll be bringing harrison with them.

Victoria: I know. Ashland is so looking forward to seeing his son.

Jack: Well, I happen to know the feeling is mutual. How is ashland doing?

Victoria: My fiancé’s very strong. He’s handling the treatments well.

Jack: Well, it sounds like congratulations are in order all around.

Nikki: Yes, we are on track to have a glorious wedding.

Victoria: Yes, as long as i make sure that everything is under control.

Nikki: Well, it is, darling. You don’t have to do another thing.

Victoria: Well, there are just actually a few more things that I do need to check on.

Jack: Victoria seems a little tense. Everything alright?

Victor: Now, billy boy, knowing you, I’m not a bit surprised that you’re loitering around where you’re not welcome.

Billy: I got an invitation, just like everyone else.

Victor: And you didn’t have the common sense to stay home?

Billy: If you don’t mind, victor, ashland and I are having a private conversation.

Victor: I don’t give a damn. I’m here to talk to the man who’s actually worthy of marrying my daughter.

Billy: Oh, come on. You don’t honestly believe that, do you?

Victor: You bet. Now, for your information, this is my property. I can have you thrown out of the damn place, or you walk out on your own.

Billy: Ashland, we’re not done yet, are we?

Ashland: I’m going to have to agree with my future father-in-law. Victor suggested that you leave the premises. So what are you waiting for? Scoot over.

Nikki: Well, yes, victoria is a little tense, but what bride isn’t? I was a bundle of nerves on our wedding day — both of them, as I recall.

Jack: Who could forget? I understand, though, there’s been a bit of friction between nicholas and victoria. I hope they’re not gonna let it ruin the day.

Nikki: Oh, no. But, uh, I can’t deny there’s has been a little bit of family conflict.

Jack: Well, I think that’s natural. Big event, lots of family. Nerves are bound to be frayed. Believe me. I have been in that situation with my sister more times than i can count. Everything works out in the end. It’s gonna be a stunning wedding.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] Well, the ceremony is small, just those closest to them, but the reception is going to be a much grander celebration.

Nate: Nikki. Jack.

Nikki: Hey, nate!

Jack: Elena! Good to see you.

Elena: Great to see you, jack.

Nikki: I hope you’ve been enjoying yourselves.

Elena: How could we not in a place this beautiful?

Nate: We’ve already visited the neighborhood winery.

Jack: Ooh, I’m gonna add that to my list of things to do.

Elena: [ Laughs ] So, nikki, are you ready for the big day?

Nikki: I think I’ve just about got everything all set.

Elena: [ Laughs ] Well, then you’re doing much better than nate. He’s still struggling with his best man toast.

Nikki: Ohh!

Jack: Wait. Best man? I didn’t know that. In fact, I didn’t know the two of you were close at all.

Nate: Oh, it’s a new friendship, but a strong one.

Jack: Well, ashland is a man of many surprises.

Nikki: Yes, he certainly is.

[ Chuckles ]

Phyllis: Hey! Oh, well, looking at your face, it didn’t go how you wanted it.

Nick: That’s an understatement.

[ Sighs ]

Phyllis: I’m sorry. I know how you wanted everything to work out.

Nick: Well, my sister’s just not in a very forgiving mood.

Phyllis: What about your parents? Can they step in?

Nick: No, they can’t because they’re both firmly on team ashland.

Phyllis: Really? I don’t even get that.

Nick: Yeah, me either. Vick did say I could go to the wedding if I wanted to.

Phyllis: Well, alright, that’s good. I mean, she’s coming around. That should make you feel better.

Nick: No, because her heart wasn’t in it when she asked. She’s just tired of us arguing, so she reluctantly gave in. But she made it very clear that this decision is not an act of forgiveness.

Phyllis: I don’t know why she’s being like this. Honestly, you’ve done everything you could, you know? You apologized. You were just trying to help her.

Nick: Well, it hasn’t done a damn bit of good because she still is really upset.

Phyllis: You know, I don’t get this. Maybe it’s the bridezilla thing. Maybe she’s just really tense before the wedding. You know what I mean? Because she’s being really, really petty, and she’s treating you like dirt. And I don’t like it.

Nick: Look, my sister has a right to feel the way she does, alright? So don’t use this as another opportunity to start trashing her. This is my battle. I’ll deal with it.

[ Sighs ]

Victoria: Hey, reed, listen. Don’t be sorry. I hate that you can’t make it, too, but I totally understand. Other than missing you, I mean, I’m good. Everything is fine. No. It’s more than fine. It’s — it’s perfection.

Billy: So, I guess whatever you had to say isn’t all that consequential in the grand scheme of things? Well, I will give you two your privacy. Oh, one last thing. Do you know where I can find victoria?

Victor: Billy boy, you’re pressing your luck, okay? You stay away from my daughter. This is her special occasion. I will not have you destroy her happy moments. Do you understand?

Billy: Oh, don’t worry. I won’t be the one to cause the bride any distress.

Victor: Now get out.

Ashland: I caught your look earlier. I hope this is important. I was just about to tell billy that victoria knows all my secrets, including the one that gaines is holding over my head. I was hoping it might undercut his plans to disrupt the wedding.

Victor: I don’t understand why victoria invited him in the first place, especially given the information I just received from adam.

Ashland: Another complication?

Victor: [ Sighs ] The chartered flight that billy was on apparently had another passenger.

Ashland: Lily, I would assume.

Victor: No. She’s flying separately with my grandchildren.

Ashland: So, who was with billy?

Victor: Jesse gaines.

Ashland: [ Sighs heavily ]

Victor: The description that I was given of him fit him perfectly, okay? And he’s the only other one who knows about your crime, ashland.

Ashland: [ Sighs ] Yawns “okay okay, I’m up, I’m up!”

Elena: Wow. Everything about this place is incredible. The rolling hills, the majestic views. It’s breathtaking.

Nate: I second that.

Nikki: This place has always held a special spot in my heart. Victor and I have had many romantic holidays here.

Jack: You can almost feel the magic of tuscany in the air.

Nikki: Perfect for a wedding.

Phyllis: Listen, I know it’s your battle. I’m just in the trenches with you. I just wanted you to know that. I’m trying to help. I’m not trying to trash victoria. That’s not what I’m trying to do. I just want you to know that you’re not the one who’s wrong in any of this.

Nick: I just — I feel bad, you know? All I wanted to do was help my sister, but all I have done is hurt her. And I don’t want to do that anymore. I certainly don’t want to cast a shadow over her wedding by staying here.

Phyllis: Seriously? Are we leaving?

Nick: [ Sighs ]

Ashland: How did billy abbott get his hands on jesse gaines?

Victor: I don’t know. But you and I will have to think about this rationally. We have to handle him.

Ashland: Well, how did he make it to italy without you knowing?

Victoria: What’s going on?

Billy: Gaines, time to get ready. Gaines.

[ Sighs ] Damn it.

Young & The Restless Update

Recap written by Christine

The wedding was underway, and Victoria walked out wearing the dress Sally designed. Summer thought the dress was stunning, and even Phyllis grudgingly admitted she’d never seen Victoria look more beautiful. Adam asked Sally how she convinced Victoria to wear the dress. Sally said that she just told the truth, and it worked. Sally took Adam’s hand and squeezed it. Tessa sang softly while Leslie played as Victor escorted Victoria down the aisle. Victor kissed Victoria and wished her all the happiness in the world. Billy looked somber as he watched the wedding unfold.

The priest said marriage was a union between two hearts and two souls, and he gave advice on making a marriage stand the test of time. Ashland said Victoria changed him. He’d had some unexpected and difficult obstacles in the past year, and she helped him put them in perspective. She helped him cope and strive to be a better person. “You have seen me at my best and my utter worst,” he said. Adam stole a glance at Sally. Ashland continued that Victoria stood by him and accepted him for who he was. He wasn’t sure he could repay that gift, but he’d try with everything he had. He promised to give her more than he’d ever given anyone, and he vowed to be absolutely honest going forward. Lily looked at Billy.

Ashland said Victoria showed him the power of true forgiveness. Phyllis whispered to Jack that Victoria forgave this guy, but she wouldn’t forgive Nick. Ashland promised Victoria all the joy they could have in the time they had left. Victoria told the crowd that Ashland was a tough act to follow. The camera focused on Billy when Victoria said she saw herself as stronger because of Ashland. Victoria said Ashland helped her to grow as a person and to come into her own in so many ways and on so many levels. They merged their companies and now they were merging their lives and families. She’d never felt more complete. She’d made mistakes, but she felt that they all brought her to him. Victoria said no one was perfect, but that didn’t mean they were incapable of change or unworthy. She believed love transcended all.

Victoria acknowledged that “in sickness and in health” had a deeper meaning to them, but she was honored and grateful to stand by Ashland’s side fighting his illness along side him. She wished she could promise him forever, but she could promise that they’d spend every precious second they had together.

In the palazzo, Nick confronted Gaines – who was he and what was he doing in Nick’s room? Gaines said he was a friend of Ashland’s, and he tried to leave, but Nick stood in his path, because he wanted to know why Gaines was in his room. Nick advanced on Gaines and ordered him to start talking before this got ugly. Gaines put his hands up to show he meant no harm, but Nick still wanted answers. Gaines refused to tell Nick anything, so Nick gave him a little shove and closed the door. Gaines realized who Nick was, and everything he’d read told him that Nick was a righteous kind of guy. Gaines surmised that, since Nick wasn’t downstairs, he didn’t approve of the wedding. He asked what Nick actually knew about the man his sister was going to marry. Nick wanted answers from Gaines. Gaines introduced himself and admitted he wasn’t a friend of Ashland’s – quite the opposite, because he knew Ashland’s deepest darkest secret.

Nick stated that he knew all Ashland’s secrets, but Gaines was sure he didn’t know this one. He revealed that Ashland was involved in forging Camilla Rhodes’ will. That piqued Nick’s interest. Gaines told Nick the whole story about the forged will, Victor finding out and pressuring Gaines to keep silent and Billy flying Gaines here to expose Ashland. Nick asked if Gaines confronted Ashland or Victoria. Gaines said not yet because he didn’t trust Billy. He’d been hiding out at the palazzo waiting for the most opportune moment to make his move. Gaines said that Nick interrupted him before he could stop the wedding, and now it would go forward unless Nick cooperated with him and acted fast to stop Victoria from marrying that ruthless and dangerous man.

Gaines looked out the window at the ceremony and told Nick that time was running out. Nick went to the drawer and got out a key, then he told Gaines to stay put. Nick left and locked the door from the outside. “Don’t lock me in here! Take me with you!,” Gaines bellowed as he ran over and tried to get out of the room. It was no use, so he went back to the window.

Nick went to the patio door and heard Ashland say “I do.” Adam saw his brother watching the ceremony from the living room and went inside to see what was going on. Nick asked if Adam knew Jesse Gaines. Adam said they’d been looking everywhere for him. Back outside, Harrison gave his father the rings. Kyle and Summer looked at each other then smiled at Harrison.

Adam asked if Gaines was going to sabotage the wedding. “Well it sounds like he has good reason to, and if what he says is true then I want to help him,” Nick snapped. Billy saw Adam and Nick inside and told Lily that this wasn’t good. Meanwhile, Ashland put the ring on Victoria’s finger. Back inside, Adam urged Nick to think this through. Nick said that if Gaines was truthful, Victoria was about to marry a lying thief.

Billy’s phone vibrated, but Lily told him not to answer it. Back inside, Nick started to the door, but Adam wouldn’t let him go. He pointed out how happy Victoria looked and he said that she’d never forgive Nick for torpedoing her wedding. Victoria put the ring on Ashland’s finger and the priest pronounced them husband and wife. They kissed and everyone outside applauded. Nick looked upset.

Adam told Nick that he did the right thing. Nick wasn’t sure, but it was strange getting advice from Adam. It was strange for Adam to give moral guidance too. Nick asked what he should do now. He said it wasn’t like he could just join the party, because he had Gaines was locked away, and he was a powder keg. Adam said he’d alert security while Nick checked Gaines.

Victoria was glad the wedding went smoothly. Ashland thanked Victor for his support. Victor said he’d do anything for his daughter’s happiness. As Victor walked away, he passed Billy and told him to behave himself. Billy congratulated Victoria and Ashland and told her that all he’d ever wanted was for her to be happy. “Well, I guess you got your wish because I am. I’m happier than I’ve ever been,” she replied. Billy went to get a drink.

Nicely done, Mr. Reverend…Sir,” Sally said to the priest. He said Pastor was fine. She asked, of all the couples he’d married, how many he thought stayed together. He stammered, and she realized it was awkward, so she made a quick exit. She ended up near Elena and Lily, who were raving about Victoria’s dress. Lily wanted to know the designer, which made Elena ask if she needed a wedding dress soon. Lily said no, and she asked if Elena did. Elena didn’t either. Lily still wanted a dress as gorgeous as Victoria’s, and she said she’d pay the designer any amount of money to get one. Sally soaked up all the praise, but she didn’t take credit.

Phyllis was clearly annoyed when she went to Victoria and passed along Nick’s best wishes. She said that Nick didn’t feel welcome at the wedding. “And yet you still felt welcome to show up and offer your opinion,” Victoria replied, then she walked away.

Victoria and Ashland were with Nikki and Nate. The couple thanked Nikki and Nate for being their wedding attendants. Victoria said she couldn’t have picked a better matron of honor. Ashland said Nate did a stellar job.

Tessa and Noah were together. He told her that her voice was stronger and more beautiful than ever. He was glad his family had her perform. Noah sensed that Tessa was distracted. She said she was fine. Noah urged Tessa to open up to him. She replied that she missed her girlfriend.

Jack approached Phyllis and said he overheard what she said to Victoria. Phyllis had felt compelled to say something. She knew it was going to be a long bumpy road for reconciliation between Victoria and Nick. Phyllis said Nick was hurt, and she didn’t understand why he didn’t want her to help. Jack suggested that Phyllis was blowing things out of proportion. He pointed out that Nick had just been through back to back destination family weddings.

Lily and Billy talked. She could see that the wedding wasn’t easy for him. She recalled him saying that he wanted to go to the wedding to prove he was over Victoria. Lily was 100% confident in her relationship with Billy, but she was also confident that if she wasn’t here, he would’ve read the text from Gaines. He said he hadn’t looked at it, and she asked if he wanted to. He did want to know where Gaines was and what he wanted. Nothing about this trip went the way Billy expected or wanted, but maybe it went the way it was meant to. He wondered if the universe was trying to tell him something. She suggested the cosmic lesson was not to give a shady guy a duffel bag of money. He’d been thinking about why he was so determined to make sure Victoria knew about Ashland’s past. Of course he wanted to protect her, but he guessed part of him wanted to prove Ashland wasn’t a better man than he was. Billy was so upset that Victoria knew the truth and was still marrying Ashland because he wanted Victoria to judge Ashland as harshly as Billy had felt judged at times. He knew that was silly because Victoria forgave him for many things and she held him accountable, as she should. Lily thought that was insightful and she thanked him for sharing it. The most important thing he felt the whole time was how much he’d moved on. He loved Lily and they loved what they had. He admitted self-awareness wasn’t cheap. There was a lot of money in that duffel bag. She said he’d spent that much gambling without learning anything.

Adam called security, then he and Nick went to the room. Gaines was relaxing on the bed.

Phyllis texted Nick to ask if he was going to the reception.

Summer and Kyle talked about their wedding, which they said was low key, but just as special as this one. He thought the palazzo was fantastic, and he suggested they should renew their vows here. She liked the idea, but wasn’t it a little soon. He said that with a wife like her, he could marry her any day. Summer saw Sally sitting alone and said she almost felt sorry for her.

Nikki talked to Victoria about the audacity of Sally to steal Victoria’s wedding dress and substitute her own. Victoria said she was wearing Sally’s dress because she preferred it to the other one. Nikki thought Victoria made the right choice, because she looked stunning. Summer walked over and asked which one of Lauren’s designers made the dress. Victoria said Sally designed it, and Summer was shocked. Victor came to talk to Victoria, so Nikki took Summer off to tell her about the dress situation. Victor took Victoria’s hands and told her he was so proud of her and he loved her so much. He was so happy for her. She loved him too.

Jack knew he and Ashland had their rough patches, in business and personally, but he wished Ashland a long and happy marriage. Kyle came up, and Ashland thanked him for taking such good care of Harrison. Ashland intended to get stronger, and he hoped Kyle kept the parental channels open. Kyle promised he would. Ashland excused himself to talk to Victor.

Ashland thanked Victor for making sure the wedding went off without a hitch. He’d thought Gaines might show up and disrupt things, but apparently he had other ideas. “I take care of things,” Victor replied.

Victoria approached Sally and said she was glad she wore Sally’s dress. However, she didn’t agree with Sally’s methods. Sally knew she crossed the line, but she believed she created the perfect dress for Victoria. Victoria thanked Sally and hugged her.

Billy checked the text. Gaines had sent him a video. Back inside, Nick wondered where security was, and Adam wondered why Gaines looked so pleased with himself when his plans had been ruined. Adam admitted he never called security, because he wanted to keep this situation quiet and controlled. Victor entered and he had a grave expression. Nick said he should’ve known Victor was pulling the strings. Gaines chimed in, and Adam told him to be quiet. Victor said Gaines was a threat Victoria and her company, and Victor wouldn’t allow that.

Lily found Billy and asked what Gaines said. Billy stated that Gaines gave them the scoop of the year. He recorded himself detailing Ashland’s crimes, including the evidence. Lily watched it and said it was huge. Gaines was giving ChancComm an hour to post it, then he was going to send it out globally. Lily asked what they should do. Billy looked across the area at Victoria and Ashland, who looked very happy.

Recap written by Christine

When Victoria woke up, Ashland was already dressed, but he’d gotten back in bed and was looking at her with love. They were pleased that their wedding day was finally here. He told her that he could never dreamed he could love anyone as much as he loved her. She loved him too, and she’d never been more certain of anything in her life. They agreed that what they had was special and unique and it didn’t matter what anyone else thought or did. They kissed. Later, she was out of bed and enjoying a fancy breakfast. She mentioned that she woke up last night, and he wasn’t in bed. He said he was restless, so he went for a walk. He thought the grounds were almost as beautiful as her. She said it was theirs now, and with some careful planning, they could run Newman/Locke from the palazzo, when the kids were on break. Right now, all he wanted to think about was marrying her. They kissed until Nikki knocked on the door. She was there to help Victoria get ready.

Ashland got ready to leave because he wanted to preserve the tradition of not seeing Victoria in her dress. She called him a romantic. He promised everything would be okay today, and he tried to kiss her, but she wouldn’t let him because she wanted their next kiss to be as husband and wife. He left the room. Nikki asked how Victoria slept. She barely slept, and she mentioned that Ashland left in the middle of the night and took a walk. Victoria felt great now though, and she couldn’t be more excited. She was sure today would be the most incredible day of her life.

Nikki forgot to get something old, new borrowed and blue. Victoria said that Victor’s spectacular wedding gift covered all of that, plus her relationship with Ashland was unconventional. Victoria said she’d experienced that tradition enough times. Nikki said they both had, but you still went into marriages with hopes and dreams, no matter what happened before. Nikki said Ashland was complicated, and Nikki knew about loving a complicated man. Victoria was clear about what she was going through. She’d never felt a connection like this before – she never felt so loved and appreciated and seen. It was a little shocking to find out about his past, the way she did and she knew a lot of people were invested in seeing her relationship fail, but she was pushing that aside and thinking about what she wanted and how she felt. She said he was still the man she fell in love with, and she knew he loved her too. That was all Nikki wanted for Victoria. She’d always be protective of Victoria, but she just wanted Victoria to be sure. Victoria was. Nikki hoped Victoria and Ashland would be able to enjoy that happiness for a long time. Victoria went to the closet and unzipped the garment bag. “What the…? This isn’t my dress,” she exclaimed.

Victoria said that she spoke with Lauren about making a few alterations, but this was a completely different dress. Nikki suggested Ashland got it, but Victoria was sure he wouldn’t take a chance like that. She wondered if it was a gift from Summer, then she said no, Summer would’ve told her about it. Nikki suggested Fenmore’s sent the wrong dress. Victoria looked the dress over. She thought it was breathtaking, but it wasn’t hers. Nikki suggested that Victoria try it on.

Billy walked into the palazzo living room. Victor was there, and he said he’d thought Lily had the sense to convince Billy to leave. Billy assumed Victor knew all about Gaines and Ashland’s secret. He said Gaines had mysteriously disappeared, and he asked if Victor had anything to do with that. Billy said that if Victor didn’t have anything to do with that, there was a problem because Gaines was a wildcard who’d been waiting a long time to cause damage. Victor blamed Billy for Gaines being here, and he vowed that Billy would pay one day. Victor told Billy to get lost. Billy sensed that Victor didn’t know where Gaines was, and he thought Victor was worried about what Gaines would do.

Billy returned to his room and told Lily that Johnny, Katie and Harrison were having a great time with the nanny the Newmans hired, but the bad news was there was no sign of Gaines. She suggested Gaines left, but he said guys like Gaines didn’t just leave. He thought Gaines was hiding and biding his time, or something happened to him.

In their bedroom, Nick told Phyllis that he was determined to get Victoria’s trust back, no matter how long it took. He apologized that things were a little tense between him and Phyllis last night. She clarified that she wasn’t tense, he was. She said that she just didn’t like the way his sister was treating him. “Well, I apologize, so…” he replied and he started toward the door. She didn’t think that was actually an apology. He kept walking and left. He returned later, after she was dressed. She spun around to show off her dress and cape. He loved it, but he’d decided not to go to the wedding. She groaned that he had to go. When he was on his walk, he’d weighed his options and decided not to go. He wanted Victoria to be happy and stress-free. Phyllis contended that Victoria had never been stress-free in her life, and she was marrying a guy who took on another guy’s identity. She didn’t understand why he suddenly wasn’t going, but she said it was his family, so he should do what he wanted. She wondered whether or not she should go. He thought she should. She noted that she’d be going to his family event alone. She asked if he’d go to the reception, and he said he’d think about it.

Nick and Billy ran into each other in the hallway. Nick stated that Billy’s plan to get Victoria to call off the wedding failed. He asked if Billy was planning any last minute fireworks. Billy wasn’t going to intervene. He thought the wedding was a mistake, though and he believed Nick agreed, since he wasn’t dressed for the event. Billy knew Nick cared about Victoria, and Billy did too.

Sally was alone on the patio when Adam came up and asked if she slept well. She hadn’t. She was so nervous because today could make or break her career. It all depended on Victoria’s reaction to the dress. He assured her that the dress was beautiful, and she asked if he really thought so. He said even if he didn’t, the plan was already in motion. He suggested she get some breakfast, but she was too wound up. He pointed out a path and told her she could go for a run and get a great view of the countryside. He’d go with her, but he just got back, and he’d hate to embarrass her by leaving her in the dust. “You had to go there, just when I was starting to think that you were actually a good influence on me,” she joked. He said he’d been called a lot of things in his life but never a good influence.

Later, Adam was alone when Victor joined him. Victor thought Adam promised to make this a perfect day for his sister. Confused, Adam said he did. “Then son, why the hell did you bring that woman as your date?,” Victor asked. Adam said Sally promised not to do anything to sabotage the wedding. He said that if he and Victor were judged on their past actions, they wouldn’t be here. He respected Sally for trying to make amends, and he thought she deserved a second chance. Victor sarcastically said it warmed the cockles of his heart. Adam changed the subject to Gaines and said he heard Victor and Ashland talking last night. Victor said Billy brought Gaines thinking it’d cause Victoria to call off the wedding, but now he knew that Victoria was aware of Ashland’s history. Victor was sure that Gaines was planning to cause trouble. Adam was willing to help in any way he could. Victor said to just make sure this was a wonderful day for Victoria.

After Adam left, Ashland joined Victor and asked if there was any sign of Gaines. There hadn’t been, and Victor thought Gaines may have taken the money Victor gave him and gotten out of Dodge. Ashland hoped so, but he worried Gaines was still around here somewhere, and even if Gaines left the palazzo, he was still a threat. Victor told Ashland to relax, and they’d deal with that when the time came. Victor said Ashland was marrying one of the most powerful beautiful women in the world. Ashland asked why Victor said “one of.” “Have you seen her mother?,” Victor replied. Victor left, and Ashland thought he was alone, so he let his frailty show. He gripped the back of a chair for balance. Nate walked out, and Ashland pretended he was stretching, not using a chair to hold himself upright. Nate wanted to know the truth. Ashland said he was just stressed about the wedding. He was sure Billy hoped he’d collapse and be unable to get married, but he said nothing would stop him from marrying the woman of his dreams, not a jealous ex, people trying to exploit his past, or this dreadful disease. Nate advised that Ashland conserve his energy. Ashland said that once he saw the woman who loved and accepted him for who he was, everything else would fall away. He’d never thought he’d have unconditional love. Nate noticed that when Ashland talked about Victoria, his breathing became stronger and more steady. Ashland said Victoria was good for him.

Noah, Summer, Kyle and Tessa chatted in the living room. Kyle had heard about Noah’s latest exhibition from Summer. Noah told a story about how a mishap with the exhibition was avoided, and it lead to a lot of good press for him. Summer said Noah was the darling of the art world now. Noah thought she was overstating it, but she said she wanted to brag about her older brother. She said he created an amazing life in London, and his career was skyrocketing, so she didn’t understand why yesterday, he said he was looking for a change. He felt like there was something more for him out there. Tessa asked where he’d go. He said as great as it was to live abroad, there was no place like home. Kyle was caught off guard, Summer was sure that Noah was joking. He said they loved life in Milan now, but they might decide to come back to Genoa City too one day. Sally walked in and the conversation dried up. Sally commented that this was awkward. Sally understood she wasn’t Summer’s favorite person, since she was slightly responsible for Summer’s move to Milan. Summer said Sally was rewriting history since Sally and Tara were involved from the beginning, and the job at Marchetti was Sally’s idea. Sally congratulated Summer on the job and the wedding. Kyle asked why Sally was even here. Sally said she was Adam’s date. “So much for his claims about wanting to make things right with the Newmans,” Kyle replied. Sally said she and Adam wanted Victoria to have a perfect day. Sally introduced herself to Noah. He shook her hand and mentioned that he was Summer’s brother. Sally guessed he’d heard of her, and she said some of it was true, and some of it wasn’t. Summer didn’t want to discuss this anymore since today was about Victoria. Sally agreed, and she suggested that they pretend it was water under the bridge and be civil.

Jack ran into Adam. Jack thought Adam had evolved, but here he was, using his sister’s wedding to get under people’s skin. Adam wasn’t aware that he was doing that. Jack said Adam brought Sally to the wedding knowing what she did to Summer. Sally walked up and overheard Adam say Jack should ask himself why he really objected to Sally being his date. Sally joined the men, and Jack excused himself. Sally wished she thought this trip through. She was so concerned about getting her dress to Victoria that she forgot she was the last person any of these people wanted to see. Adam knew from experience that you got used to it. He told her she should go get changed so she could make the pitch when the time was right. She was still in her running gear, and she rushed off.

Sally returned in a dress that wowed Adam. She said she hoped he meant his compliment in a strictly professional sense. Nikki found Victor, who was talking to Summer and Kyle. She pulled him away and whispered that they delivered the wrong dress. He didn’t see why that was a big deal. She hissed that he bride had the wrong dress. He still seemed mystified about why this was an issue. He asked if Victoria was refusing to wear it. Sally overheard all this and rushed off. Summer and Kyle made a comment to Adam about Sally’s abrupt departure. Adam replied that Sally wanted the wedding to go well. Kyle asked why Sally would be invested in Victoria and Ashland’s wedding. Summer sensed Adam and Sally were up to something.

Sally went upstairs and knocked on Victoria’s door. Victoria saw Sally and was about to close the door, until Sally blurted out that she was behind the wedding dress switch. Victoria insisted that Sally come inside and explain herself. Sally explained that she designed this dress specifically for Victoria. Victoria realized Sally hoped she’d see the dress and either not notice or fall in love with it anyway. Victoria said Sally had badly miscalculated, and she’d clearly learned nothing from all the other stunts she’d pulled. Sally knew it was a risky move, but she was sure she was right. She asked if Victoria fell in love with the dress Lauren’s designer made. Did it spark joy? Sally said it didn’t, and it couldn’t because that designer didn’t consider the woman it was made for. Sally designed this dress after studying every detail of who Victoria was – her style, body type, the way she moved, her strength and elegance. Sally designed a dress that captured Victoria’s essence. Victoria asked where the first dress was and she asked if Sally destroyed it. Sally sighed that Victoria really thought the worst of her. Sally had the dress in her room, and she’d give it back after Victoria tried on the new one. Sally knew Victoria would fall in love with the new dress. Nikki walked in and demanded to know what Sally was doing here. Victoria ordered Sally to go get her dress and hang it on the door. Sally left.

Phyllis went out to the patio in her dress, which she told everyone was a Marchetti. Summer asked where her dad was, and Phyllis said he was being fashionably late, as usual. Summer said that actually wasn’t like him. Noah figured Nick was skipping the wedding. Noah said he’d go straighten this out, but Phyllis said they had to respect Nick’s choice. Jack waved at Phyllis, and she went over to him.

Billy was on the patio when Lily called and said she was having a hair emergency. He overheard Victor tell Ashland about the dress situation. Billy assured Lily that she had some company since Victoria was having issues getting ready too.

Sally came back outside just as Nikki directed the guests to take their seats. Ashland brought Harrison out, then he and Nikki exchanged smiles. Leslie began to play the piano. Victoria walked out, and Sally’s mouth fell open. Victoria was in the dress Sally designed. Summer whispered to Kyle that the dress was stunning. She wondered who designed it. Adam told Sally she did well. Phyllis grudgingly told Jack that she’d never seen Victoria look more beautiful. Victor joined Victoria and told her she looked stunning. She thanked him for everything, and he kissed her on the cheek.

Gaines went to Nick and Phyllis’ empty bedroom and looked out the window. Nick returned and asked who Gaines was and what he was doing here.

Recap written by Christine

How dare you bring that horrible man here.” At the palazzo, Victoria confronted Billy while Lily and Ashland watched. Billy tried to explain, but Victoria didn’t want to hear it because there was nothing he could say to justify trying to hurt her this way. Billy assumed that Gaines said something to upset Victoria. He swore that this wasn’t the way he wanted her to find out about Ashland’s past. Victoria clarified that she didn’t talk to Gaines, and she didn’t need to because she knew the whole story. Billy doubted that. Ashland said he told Victoria all about the real Ashland’s death and the inheritance fraud. Victoria accused Billy of hoping to find some deep dark secret that would blow up her entire relationship. Lily thought Billy just wanted Victoria to know what she was getting into. Scoffing, Victoria said if that were true, Billy would be relieved that Ashland confided in her instead of being a shattered mess because he wasn’t the one who got to drop the bomb. Billy denied being a shattered mess. Victoria said Billy knew how important this wedding was to her. She stated that Ashland was in chemo, and he was fighting so hard to make this a beautiful ceremony that they could cherish the rest of their lives. She said Billy was trying to take that from them. She ordered him to stop harassing them and let her go. Victoria and Ashland left.

Lily stared out the window. Billy hoped she didn’t let what Victoria said get to her. “There’s nothing wrong with us trying to uncover the truth,” he said. “You – not ‘us,’” Lily replied. She felt that he went too far bringing Gaines to what Victoria wanted to be a joyous and stress-free event. Billy said Ashland kind of attacked Billy’s credibility, so he brought Gaines because he didn’t think Victoria would take his word for it without proof. Lily said that was because Billy incorrectly thought Ashland would lie. She told him to admit it. He conceded that he didn’t expect Ashland to come clean about all the crimes he committed. Lily reminded Billy that when they fell in love, he told her about all the things he did that he was ashamed of. She said maybe not everything Ashland did was cold and calculated – maybe he actually loved Victoria and they had something real. Lily didn’t think Billy liked hearing her say that.

Billy said he didn’t have a hidden agenda. He asserted that Victoria was pushing that angle because she was in denial about how serious Ashland’s crimes were. Lily said that might be because Victoria didn’t think something that happened 40 years ago was relevant to who Ashland was today. Billy suggested that Victoria was trying to protect Ashland because of the merger. He wouldn’t be surprised if her father pushed her into it. Lily didn’t think Victoria’s motives mattered – all that was important was that she was standing by Ashland, and Billy’s plan backfired. Billy thought that Victoria had been so defensive earlier because Ashland’s crimes bothered her, which they should, because the guy was a liar and a criminal. “Billy, I need you to listen to me okay? The wedding is happening tomorrow whether you like it or not,” Lily firmly said. Billy asked if Lily wanted him to just drop it and let Victoria make a mistake. Lily said all the guests were doing their best to celebrate Ashland and Victoria, and if she and Billy couldn’t do that, they didn’t belong here. She told him the kids could fly home on Victor’s jet. He didn’t think that was necessary. He didn’t apologize or trying to uncover the truth, and he didn’t think Ashland deserved credit for confessing due to the pressure of the investigation. Lily noted that Victoria was still marrying Ashland. Billy said he’d pay Gaines some more money to convince him to abandon the plan to get revenge, then he’d buy him a first class plane ticket. He thought he and Lily should be at the wedding so that his kids saw that their parents supported each other. He knew Victoria would need support when Ashland started to deteriorate, and he wanted her to know she could count on him. Lily was impressed by Billy’s shift in attitude. He said this whole time he’d been trying to do the right thing – Victoria had been hurt a lot, mostly by him. Lily knew Billy was just trying to make amends in his own antagonistic way. He also wanted Lily to know that he loved and was committed to her her, and he thought they should go to the wedding so she could see that he wasn’t hung up on his ex. She knew he was passionate and that he’d go to extremes for the people he loved, which was exhausting, but endearing. They kissed.

Out on the patio, Phyllis wondered where Jack went, and Kyle said he was off playing with Harrison. Summer said Harrison was so sweet that all her fears about being a stepmom had melted away. She couldn’t imagine their lives without him. Kyle praised how Summer was with Harrison. Noah teased Summer about her huge clothing collection, and she teased him back by saying she wore outfits once then gave them away. When he believed her, she laughed at him for being gullible. Kyle, Summer, Phyllis and Noah were all chatting and having a great time, but Nick was just silently taking it all in. Kyle, Summer and Noah went to refill their wine glasses, and Phyllis commented that Nick was so quiet. He said it was all good.

Adam and Sally got to the palazzo, and her confidence faltered. He asked what her next move was. She said she guessed she’d just corner Victoria and convince her to try on the dress. Adam said that if Victoria saw Sally first, she’d never get a chance to unzip the garment bag. He had another idea.

Jack joined everyone out on the patio and told Kyle and Summer that Harrison wanted a bedtime story. The newlyweds left. Noah asked Nick if there was any progress with Victoria. Nick said he was giving her space, like she asked. Phyllis thought that whatever was going on with Victoria had very little to do with Nick. Nick wanted them to be on their best behavior. Phyllis sensed that what he was really saying was that he wanted her to be on her best behavior, and she asked why she wouldn’t be. Noah changed the subject and said he wondered where Ashland and Victoria were.

Up in their bedroom, Victoria paced around ranting. She said she was so supportive when Billy moved in with Lily – she even bought them a plant. Ashland thought Billy was in love with Victoria. Victoria wasn’t sure that was true. She thought it was more about Billy’s enormous ego, but even if he were in love with her, she wondered what Billy hoped to accomplish. Victoria said she’d never trust Billy again. Ashland said Billy wasn’t their problem – Gaines was. He thought Gaines wanted to publicly humiliate him. She said they should have security throw him out. Ashland went to handle it.

Tessa arrived in Tuscany and talked with Nate and Elena in the palazzo living room. They asked where Mariah was. Tessa said Mariah decided not to come. Later, after Elena and Nate were gone, Nikki and Victor came in and introduced Leslie and Tessa. Tessa and Leslie had video chatted earlier about the song they were going to perform at the ceremony, and they were both excited about working together. Leslie, Tessa and Nikki went off to chat. Adam came downstairs and greeted Victor, just as Noah and Nick came in from outside. Victor was delighted to have three generations together. Adam and Noah were civil, but it was awkward. Adam complimented the job Noah did on the Newman Media branding package. Victor appreciated that they all came and that they were trying to get along. Across the room, Tessa sang while Leslie was at the piano. Noah looked moved as he stared at Tessa and listened to the love song.

Adam headed out to the patio and chatted with Nate and Elena. Elena asked if Adam caught up with Billy after they missed each other at Society. he said he did, but it didn’t go well, so he’d steer clear of Billy in Tuscany. On the other side of the patio, Phyllis griped about Adam having the audacity to show up. Jack was sure Victor was glad he did. “Does it bother you at all what he’s done to his family?,” she asked. She said that this family drove her crazy. Jack told Phyllis to let it go because this would be over soon.

Victoria did her makeup and damned Billy. She said she wasn’t going to let him ruin this night for her. She left the bedroom, and Sally sneaked in with the dress. Sally was going to put her dress in the closet and take the wedding dress that Victoria already had. Victoria suddenly returned, so Sally hid. Victoria got her shoulder wrap. She noticed that her closet door was open, and she found it odd, but she just closed it and left. Victoria went downstairs and listened to the music, then she joined Victor, who was now alone on the couch. He asked if she was okay, and she said yes. Nick and Noah returned and Victoria turned away from her brother.

Nick went back outside and talked with Phyllis. She told him Victoria would come around and Victoria would owe him a big apology. Nick knew Phyllis didn’t like his sister, but he said exploiting this wasn’t helping. She said she wasn’t exploiting it, she was sympathizing with him. He didn’t see it that way, and he walked off. Jack joined Phyllis and told her Nick was upset, so she shouldn’t take it personally. Phyllis said that didn’t make it any better, and she walked away.

Noah approached Tessa and told her didn’t realize until now how much he missed her. The exes found a private place to chat, and she asked how London was. It was going well, he had three commissions. She marveled that he was doing photography for a living, she was singing, and they were both living the dream. He thought she was smarter than him when choosing a dream to pursue. He loved art, but it was different than the music world. He said that when people paid to hear her sing, it was because they loved her voice, but sometimes people bought his art as an investment and intended to flip it like a condo. It could be a little discouraging. Once, a client offered to pay him to make less art, that way the value of the pieces he already owned would go up. She said if it made him feel better, music was commercial too. They bantered with each other, and he gazed at her.

Sally found Adam and said mission accomplished, now they just had to see how the bride reacted. The dress was designed specifically to Victoria’s taste and figure, so she had to believe that Victoria would love it. Kyle and Summer came outside laughing about something cute Harrison did. Adam congratulated them on the wedding. Summer saw Sally and asked what she was doing here. Adam said Sally was his date.

Later, Adam and Sally were off somewhere else, and Jack and Phyllis were with Summer and Kyle. They were talking about Adam saying Sally was his date. Summer thought it was tacky. Summer doubted Victor knew Adam was bringing Sally, because there was no way Victor would want Sally here after the way she treated Summer. Kyle said that if it bothered Summer that much, she could tell Victor, who’d surely have Sally thrown out. Phyllis loved that idea, but Summer didn’t want Sally to get the satisfaction of knowing she got under their skin. Jack told Phyllis that Summer had the right idea, and he said she should stay away from Sally and any ice buckets. Phyllis said Sally should stay away from her.

Elsewhere on the patio, Adam noted that Sally liked riling people up. She said everyone needed a hobby. She figured she should probably go to bed, since his family would probably be less likely to wake her up to throw her out. He said his dad and sister had more important things to worry about than ousting Sally. She went inside.

Adam went inside too and saw Ashland whisper something to Victor. Victoria also saw them speaking. Victor and Ashland stepped outside. Victor was glad when Ashland told him that Victoria put Billy in his place. Now they had to be concerned with Gaines. Ashland knew it wouldn’t be easy to get rid of Gaines – it wasn’t the money, he had a score to settle. Ashland said even if they could keep Gaines from the wedding, he could still damage Newman/Locke. Victor said that wouldn’t happen. They walked away, and Adam stepped out from around the corner, where he’d been eavesdropping.

Victoria got ready for bed. Ashland came in and said he and Victor briefed the security team on the situation. He promised Gaines would be found and removed. Victoria hoped everything would go smoothly at the wedding. He assured her it would and that this time tomorrow, they’d be married. They kissed.

Elena and Nate found a private spot to talk and enjoy the night air. They heard Leslie playing, and they danced.

Phyllis found Nick sitting alone and she joined him. He apologized for snapping at her earlier. She said it was hard for her to hang out with his family, because they didn’t like or trust her, and the feeling was mutual. But she was doing this for him. He said he was out of line, and it wouldn’t happen again. She teased that she didn’t fully forgive him, and he’d have to work for it. Jack strolled to the patio doorway and his mouth fell open when he saw Phyllis and Nick talking. Nikki joined Jack and asked if he’d seen Victor.

Lily and Billy were in bed, basking in the afterglow and listening to the music outside their room. She was glad they didn’t leave. She admired his ability to course-correct. He asked if there was anything else she admired. She whispered something in his ear, and they kissed.

Mariah invited Kevin for coffee at Crimson Lights, and he came. She recently went back to work, and everyone had been amazing. He thought it was too bad that she couldn’t take more time off and go to Italy with Tessa. Mariah said that she was going to go, but the baby got sick. Kevin was concerned, and Mariah said it was just a cold. Kevin asked why Mariah couldn’t go with Tessa then. Mariah explained that Abby was talking about weaning Dominic while she was gone, and Mariah thought that was too soon. Especially when the baby was sick, and breast milk was good for the immune system. Kevin understood Mariah’s protectiveness, since he had a baby too. She pointed out that Dominic wasn’t her baby. He said she and Dominic went through a lot together. Kevin could relate to Mariah’s ordeal, due to his childhood. Mariah had heard the stories. He said he knew what it was like to be locked in a small space for a very long period of time. Mariah said she was doing okay with that aspect of it. She got a little jumpy if she heard footsteps behind her, and she didn’t like it being too quiet or being alone for too long, but she could function. She asked how his kids were doing.

Kevin pulled out his phone to show off photos of Miles and Bella. Miles was walking. Mariah realized she missed his birthday. Kevin knew Mariah was otherwise occupied, and birthday parties for babies were pointless because babies didn’t care. He joked that if Mariah and Tessa had kids, they shouldn’t even invite the baby to the party. Tessa called, and Kevin stepped away from the table. Mariah asked how Tessa was and if she was jet lagged. Tessa slept on the plane. She whispered that this place was over the top in the best way, and everyone was asking about Mariah. Tessa was excited about getting to meet Leslie Brooks. Mariah said she didn’t get much sleep last night, and she was buried in work, so she couldn’t talk now. The call ended. Kevin wondered about Mariah blowing off her girlfriend. Mariah didn’t want to talk about it now. Right now she just wanted to hear about the kids. He told her about Bella’s dance recital. She was dressed as a mouse, but another little girl was dressed as a giant sugar cube. Kevin could barely contain his laughter as he explained that the sugar cube child fell and wasn’t able to get back up because of her costume. Mariah didn’t get into the story and laugh with Kevin.

Recap written by Christine

At the palazzo, Victoria walked in on Victor and Ashland in a tense discussion, and she asked what was wrong. Ashland declared that he was through hiding things from Victoria. He was about to tell her everything, but Victor interjected that he and Ashland were having a the kind of discussion that a man had with his future son in law. Ashland went with the story and said he and Victor were going to make sure this wedding went off without a hitch. Victoria thought that meant something that needed to be dealt with. Victor told Victoria that all she needed to know was that any potential threat was under control. He left. Victoria asked Ashland what was really going on. Ashland said he’d had some trouble breathing, but he was fine now and Billy came to his rescue. She mentioned that Billy had been calling her non-stop, and he seemed eager to confront her with some news. Ashland told Victoria that there was nothing Billy knew that she didn’t already know. She said her mom told Billy not to come, but she was glad he did because she couldn’t wait to see how crushed he’d be when he found out he flew all this way for nothing. She wondered where Billy was now. Ashland told Victoria not to worry about it.

In their room at the palazzo, Phyllis had just learned that Nick was thinking of leaving. At first, she though about her dress going to waste, but then she said that she was willing to follow his lead on whether to stay or go. She promised to keep the disparaging remarks about Victoria to herself. He didn’t think he could sway Victoria. Victoria had said he could stay, but he didn’t want to be a dark cloud over the wedding. Just as Nick said he wanted to leave, Noah (now played by Rory Gibson) walked in. He could tell something was wrong with his father, and he’d noticed it at Kyle and Summer’s wedding too. Phyllis left so they could talk in private. Nick told Noah about the clash with Victoria. Nick was leaving because he didn’t want to stay where he wasn’t wanted. That sounded like an excuse to Noah. He thought that Nick should stay and fight for Victoria’s forgiveness if it was really that important to him. Nick said he wouldn’t have looked into Ashland’s past if he didn’t care about Victoria. Noah stated that Nick always taught him not to run from a challenge. Noah said he’d be disappointed if Nick didn’t follow through on his own advice.

Billy ended up on the patio in his search for Gaines. Jack and Nikki started to chat with him. Nikki asked where Lily and the kids were. He said they should be here any second, then he excused himself. Nikki didn’t know what Billy was doing, but she was wary. Victor walked out, and Nikki took him aside and warned him about Billy. He assured her that he had it under control. Across the area, Jack observed Nikki and Victor’s quiet talk, and he told Elena and Nate that there seemed to be some intrigue. He hoped it had nothing to do with his brother. Nate wondered if he should check on Ashland. Leslie Brooks arrived and caught up with her old friends, Victor, Nikki and Jack. Jack introduced her to Elena and Nate. Nikki was thrilled Leslie could play for Victoria and Ashland’s ceremony.

Jack saw his brother walking around looking everywhere and went over to see what he was up to. Billy claimed he was looking for Lily, and Jack didn’t believe him. He thought Billy was up to something regarding the wedding. Billy looked at his phone and lied and said he just got a text from Lily saying she was lost on the estate. Billy rushed off. Phyllis joined Jack

Victoria and Ashland came downstairs, and she wondered if they’d planned too many events – there was the cocktail party, the big family ceremony, and the reception. He assured her that he was more than ready. They walked out hand in hand. Everyone applauded. Leslie spoke with Ashland and Victoria, and Ashland asked if he could impose upon Leslie to play one of his favorite pieces. She was happy to do so as a gift to the happy couple. Leslie went inside and began to play as everyone listened out on the patio. Elena and Nate observed how happy Ashland and Victoria were, and it helped him find inspiration for his best man toast.

Billy burst into the bedroom saying “damn it where are you?” Lily thought he was talking to her, and she said she was right here. He said he didn’t know she was here since she didn’t text him. She explained that she’d been busy juggling the kids and luggage with minimal Italian. The Palazzo staff had promised Lily they’d alert Billy, but apparently they didn’t. She said the kids were napping, because they were cranky after the flight. She was annoyed that he seemed unhappy to see her. He gave her a quick kiss and assured her he was thrilled to see her. He asked how Mattie was. Mattie was fine, but she was so brilliant that she was struggling to find people on her wavelength. Lily wondered who he’d been expecting to find in this room since he didn’t know she’d arrived. He pretended not to know what she meant. She said he was flustered, and she asked what he’d done now. He kept covering, but she wanted to know the truth. He told her that he found evidence that Ashland committed fraud by altering Camilla Rhodes’ will. He’d paid Gaines a hefty sum for the information. She thought Victoria needed to hear this information.

Billy told Lily how he brought Gaines to Tuscany and lost him. She didn’t think he was right to bring Gaines here. He explained that he was going to introduce Gaines and Victoria, so he could tell her everything and she could make her decision, but now he was missing. Lily asked what Billy was hoping to accomplish – a newsworthy exposure of Ashland right before the wedding? He didn’t want a big showdown, and he didn’t plan to publish the information. He just wanted Victoria to know she was about to marry a liar and a fraud. He had no idea where Gaines was now. At one point he’d wondered if Victor’s security team found Gaines and threw him out. Lily didn’t think so, because if that happened, Victor would’ve tossed Billy too. Billy said Gaines despised Ashland, and he might have his own plan.

Noah greeted Victoria and met Ashland. Noah thought Ashland was lucky to have Victoria, and Ashland agreed. Noah mentioned Ashland showed excellent taste choosing Nate, who’d done a lot for the family over the years. Noah hoped to get to know Ashland better, maybe they could meet up next time Noah came home to visit. Ashland thought Noah was charming. Noah hoped Victoria didn’t mind, but he convinced his dad to stay. At that point, Nick came up and stared at Victoria from inside the patio doors.

Summer and Kyle arrived, and everyone clapped, then they went around hugging their family. Victoria wished she’d been at Summer and Kyle’s wedding. Summer understood that Victoria was busy working so she could take time off for her own wedding. Kyle said Summer had become a bit of a celebrity. People in the fashion district recognized her on the street. Nick, who’d joined the party outside, said he always knew his Supergirl would be a star. Ashland was thrilled Summer and Kyle were here and more importantly, that they were taking such good care of Harrison. He asked where his son was, and at that moment, Harrison ran out of the house and into Ashland’s arms.

Everyone chatted and mingled while Ashland held Harrison and Nick and Victoria looked at each other from across the room. Jack told Phyllis that it looked like Victoria and Nick called a truce. Phyllis thought maybe Noah talked Nick out of leaving. Jack hoped so, because he’d hate it if Phyllis had to leave already. Phyllis wasn’t sure how it’d work out, but she wanted to stay so she could spend time with her daughter. She thought Summer’s wedding was beautiful intimate affair, unlike this drama-filled event. Jack thought Phyllis liked drama. She did, but not like this. She felt like she could never say the right thing to Nick about his sister. She was an outsider in the family, and she thought the way they treated each other was horrific. Jack insisted that Phyllis wasn’t an outsider, especially to Nick. Phyllis commented on how supportive Jack was being of Nick and of her relationship with Nick. She thought he was overcompensating for what he’d said before, and she didn’t think that was necessary. Jack said he only wanted the best for Phyllis, and she replied that she found this exhausting. She wanted him to stop trying to humor her and stop being so careful, because it was annoying. She knew she could be annoying sometimes. She wanted their relationship to go back to normal, and he agreed to do that.

Nate and Elena talked with Leslie. Elena asked if it ever got old for people to ask her to play. Leslie said it came with the profession. She likened it to the way people must discuss their health issues with Elena and Nate. Leslie believed it was a duty to share your gifts, plus she enjoyed performing. Leslie assumed Nate and Ashland were old friends, since Nate was best man. She asked what he thought of Ashland. Nate clarified that they only met recently, but he was impressed with Ashland. Leslie understood Ashland and Victoria were devoted to starting fresh, and she liked the idea of not looking back. Nate agreed.

Nikki joined Nick and told him that Noah was a talented confident young man who reminded her of Nick. Nick mentioned that Noah just gave him some of his own advice. Nick brought Nikki up to speed on how he failed to patch things up with Victoria, and he was thinking of leaving. Nikki wasn’t happy to hear that. He wanted to wait and see how things played out. He’d said his piece and did his best to convince Victoria that everything he did was for her sake, but he couldn’t force her to be okay with it. Nikki asked Nick to try and be patient with his sister.

Jack told Kyle he was glad he and Summer found their way back to each other. He missed Kyle and Harrison, but he was glad of the way Kyle and Summer missed up. He was also proud of the way Kyle honored the bond between Harrison and the man who raised him. Kyle said that Harrison missed Tara and Ashland, but he was a happy child, and his happiness came first. He was glad to be able to give Harrison time with Ashland. Jack was touched that Kyle put his son’s happiness first. Kyle said he learned that from Jack, and they hugged.

Noah and Summer talked in private about their dad. She wondered why Nick was being so weird, both here and in Milan. Noah caught Summer up on the problem with Nick and Victoria. Summer was surprised Nick and Victoria were still fighting at this stage in life instead of realizing that they’d make up eventually and just doing so now. Noah wasn’t sure people grew out of sibling rivalry. Summer said she and Noah did. Noah didn’t love being away from the family, but he didn’t miss the constant drama. Summer could relate – she missed everyone from Genoa City, but it was chaos-free in Milan. Noah teased Summer about being a married old lady, and she said everyone would expect him to get married next. He didn’t think settling down would be the worst thing in the world. She was surprised because she thought he liked casually dating. He explained that after the example Nick and Sharon set, he didn’t trust relationships to last. He was sure Summer understood since Nick and Phyllis were like that too. He brought up the roller coaster she and Kyle used to be on, and he was sure that got old. She said she and Kyle were on again off again for a really long time until they realized they wanted to be together forever. Noah admired that and wanted it for himself someday. Summer invited Noah for a long visit or suggested he move there. She’d met so many amazing women she could introduce him to. He said he had been thinking about a change of scenery.

Victor got everyone’s attention and made a toast to Ashland and Victoria. Victor said Ashland was almost as ruthless as he was, but Victoria was a worthy adversary. He said that Victoria and Ashland merged their companies and created an empire that he hoped would honor the legacy of Newman and Locke. Victor saw the love between Victoria and Ashland, and it meant a lot to him. Victor said that fathers never thought anyone was good enough for their daughter, but Ashland was a good man. Victor welcomed Ashland to the family. Ashland privately thanked Victor after the speech. Victor sent Ashland to make sure Billy didn’t do anything. Ashland went looking for Billy and ran into Gaines instead. Gaines heard Victor’s speech, and he said perhaps he should go make a speech about the way Ashland built an empire on deceit and criminal behavior. He suggested that he might announce it tomorrow before the ceremony, or maybe he’d make Ashland so nervous that he’d call off the wedding. Victoria joined Ashland and asked what was going on. Gaines told the pair to enjoy their evening, and he left. Victoria guessed that was Gaines. Ashland was going to call security, but Victoria told him not to because she was going to handle it. She walked off, and he followed.

Back in their room, Lily asked what Billy thought Gaines was going to do. He didn’t know. He thought Gaines was very disappointed that Billy didn’t want to interrupt the wedding. Lily said that Billy couldn’t let Gaines wreck the ceremony. He knew because if that happened, Victoria would never forgive him. Victoria and Ashland walked in. “What the hell do you think you’re doing?,” Victoria asked.

Nate told Elena he came up with a perfect angle for his speech. He said he and Ashland were from different generations, and they didn’t know each other from the business world. Ashland was a new friend that Nate came to know under extraordinary circumstances. He talked about Ashland’s strength and fortitude under the face of adversity, who was marrying Victoria, who Nate wanted the best for. Elena loved the speech. She thought it was heartfelt and honest like the man who gave the speech. She suggested that they could focus on the romance of Italy and this amazing wedding now.

Young & The Restless Update

Recap written by Christine

Jack and Phyllis were in a bedroom at the Palazzo. He was there to drop off a Marchetti dress Phyllis left on the plane. Phyllis said she was going to wear it to support her daughter’s flourishing career. He asked where Nick was, and she said Nick was off taking the bull by the horns. She noted that she and Nick were here against Victoria’s wishes. Jack hoped Victoria would let Nick stay at the wedding. Phyllis said that the siblings had lots of fights over the years, but this was out of control. Jack stated that Victoria was loyal to the man she loved, just like Nick had defended Phyllis to Victoria. Phyllis said that Nick saved her hotel when Victoria went after The Grand Phoenix. Jack told Phyllis that she couldn’t convince Victoria to change her mind on Nick. Phyllis knew that, but she suggested that Jack might be able to sway Victoria. He refused to get involved, because he thought the siblings should work it out on their own.

Phyllis stated that Nick was just trying to help Victoria. Jack said that at least Nick accepted that the wedding was inevitable, unlike Billy. Phyllis respected Nick for going above and beyond for the people he loved, however, she thought Nick might be handling this the wrong way by talking nicely. Jack said to relax – what was the worst that could happen? Phyllis said the security could throw them out. Phyllis and Jack’s phones chimed in tandem – texts of wedding photos from Kyle and Summer. Phyllis said Ashland and Victoria’s splashy affair didn’t hold a candle to this beautiful and intimate ceremony. Jack was sure both weddings would be beautiful.

In their bedroom in Tuscany, Victoria told Ashland that their guests had arrived or would be soon, so things were all set. He wanted to know what she felt in her heart now that things had time to sink in. He didn’t want her to go through with the wedding tomorrow if her main motivation was to save their company. Victoria said one way or another, Newman/Locke would be safe. He asked what his beautiful bride had up her sleeve – it sounded like she had a plan to save the company. All she wanted to focus on now was their love and their wedding. He kissed her forehead and said it meant to much that he was standing by him, despite everything. She kept thinking about his childhood, imagining an anxious boy running from an abusive home, leaving everything behind and losing the only friend he had in a car accident. She added that he’d felt like the woman who meant more to him than his own mother, his mentor, betrayed him on her deathbed. The story haunted Victoria, so she could see how it followed him everywhere, even after he became the formidable Ashland Locke. He marveled that she really understood. She knew he didn’t tell her because he didn’t want to taint the beautiful relationship they were building. She said it had now, but she promised him that everything would be okay. She assured him that, this time tomorrow, they’d be husband and wife, and nothing was going to stop them.

Victoria was concerned when Ashland started to cough. He said he was fine. She hoped the stress of the last two days hadn’t exacerbated his condition. He promised nothing would slow him down or get in the way of reciting his vows. She asked if he knew what he was going to say. He said his were written in his heart. Hers were written on on paper, but when he asked for a preview, she said no. She was dressed, and he didn’t want to let her go. She said they’d have so many moments in the future. She told him to hurry and get dressed and meet her downstairs. He smiled, but as soon as she was out of the room, he dropped onto the chair and coughed again.

Nick was outside on the patio with his parents. He was hoping they could give him a read on Victoria before he approached her. He asked if they thought there was a chance he could repair things before Victoria said “I do.” Nikki wasn’t sure Victoria would be receptive to Nick’s surprise appearance. He said he couldn’t stay away on his sister’s wedding day. Nikki stated that Victoria was already stressed. Victor added that a lot of that stress was caused by Nick digging into Ashland’s past. Nick pointed out that he and Victor were both investigating Ashland. Victor countered that he didn’t go to New Jersey and dredge up old skeletons. Nick owned what he did. Right now he wanted to make things easier on Victoria. He said he and his sister had been in lots of fights and they always made up. Victor was adamant that he didn’t want anyone to cause problems on Victoria’s happy day. Nick bristled because he thought Victor was calling him a problem. Nikki said Victoria didn’t need Nick and Victor arguing. Nick was taken aback to learn that his parents were both supportive of Victoria marrying a man who exploited a death.

Nick didn’t know how Nikki and Victor could condone this union. He noted that it wasn’t long ago that he and Victor were both investigating Ashland, so what changed. Victor said Ashland confessed and came clean about his identity. Nick argued that Ashland only came clean because Nick confronted him with the truth. Nick added that Ashland left out the part where he left his best friend to die in a burning car. Nikki pointed out that Ashland thought his friend was already dead from the accident. Nick didn’t know how they could make excuses for Ashland. Victor liked Nick’s concern for his sister, but he wanted Nick to let this go.

Victoria walked up. Nikki said Nick came to make peace. Victor asked if that was okay with Victoria. She said it was fine – nothing Nick could say would make her more upset than she already was. Nikki and Victor left. Victoria hoped Nick wasn’t going to tell her to stop the wedding, because that wasn’t going to happen. He never intended to betray her. She snapped that he did though. He never wanted to find dirt about Ashland. He looked into Ashland’s past out of concern for Victoria. After thinking about it, he guessed he could understand why Ashland worked so hard to keep that painful memory a secret. Nick wasn’t going to try and convince Victoria to change her mind about the marriage. He respected her decision, but he didn’t like it, and he didn’t trust Ashland. Victoria said that Nick destroyed her trust in him. She didn’t see how she could ever confide in him again. He swore he’d never hurt her on purpose. She said his apology didn’t begin to make up for what he did. He asked if she couldn’t forgive him a little – it was her wedding day, and he wanted to be there. He promised not to say another word about Ashland. She appreciated his effort, but she could tell he was still holding back about her fiance, and that was the last thing she needed. She didn’t forgive him, but she said he could stay because their parents wanted him there. He said it was her wedding, and her opinion was the only one that mattered. He asked if she wanted him there or not. She said that her attention would be focused on Ashland, and she probably wouldn’t notice if Nick was in the crowd or not. He asked where things stood. She refused to discuss that. Victoria said Nick hurt her, and it wasn’t her job to absolve him. She was going to focus on Ashland and her wedding.

Nikki and Victor went inside. Victor was worried Nick wouldn’t let this go and that he’d ruin Victoria’s day. Nikki thought Nick would put Victoria’s happiness first. Nikki’s biggest concern now was that Nick didn’t know about Ashland’s latest surprise. Victor said the less people who knew the better. Nikki said this latest secret was atrocious, and if Nick found out, it’d add fuel to the fire. Victor thought the important thing was Victoria made peace with it. He vowed to make sure the other secret stayed buried.

Billy snuck Gaines into a bedroom at the palazzo. Gaines said he’d been waiting a long time for Ashland’s downfall. He was thinking they could humiliate Ashland while he was at the altar waiting for his bride. Billy said he was here to protect Victoria, and he didn’t want to cause more pain than necessary. He was going to try and get Victoria to join him in this bedroom, then Gaines could tell her the truth. He wanted to give Victoria some space and privacy. Gaines was okay with that as long as the outcome was the same – Locke getting humiliated on his wedding day. Billy told Gaines to stay in hiding while he went to get Victoria.

Elena found Nate in the Palazzo living room with his tablet, and she commented that he was holed up instead of exploring the estate. He wanted to spend time with her, but he was struggling with his best man toast. He wanted it to be smooth, warm and brilliant, something worthy of a power couple. She thought it was understandable that he’d have a hard time since he hadn’t known Ashland very long. She told him to come with her and find romantic inspiration.

Nate and Elena went back to the palazzo after visiting a winery down the road. He enjoyed it, but it didn’t help his writer’s block. They talked about Victoria and Ashland’s work bringing them together. “Working long hours togeher. Saving lives. Oh wait, that’s us,” Nate said. He and Elena weren’t sure exactly what Ashland and Victoria did in the office. Billy walked in, and Elena hoped his presence meant he’d accepted that the wedding was happening. He thought things would go how they were supposed to. He excused himself and resumed his search for Victoria.

Billy went upstairs and overheard Ashland having a coughing fit. Billy stepped into the bedroom and offered to help Ashland or get Nate. Ashland, still coughing, insisted he was fine, but he asked for water. Billy poured him a glass. Ashland was surprised Billy came after Nikki urged him not to. Billy said he wasn’t going to miss the event of the year. Ashland was telling Billy not to disrupt the wedding when Victor showed up and asked what Billy was doing here. Billy said he and Ashland were talking in private. Victor was here to talk to the man who was actually worthy of his daughter. Victor noted that it was his property, and Billy could leave or get thrown out. Billy said he and Ashland weren’t done. Ashland was in agreement with Victor.

Billy asked where to find Victoria. Victor ordered Billy to stay away from his daughter. He wouldn’t have Billy destroy Victoria’s happy moment. Billy said he wouldn’t be the one to cause the bride any distress. He left. Ashland said he was just about to tell Billy that Victoria knew all his secrets, including the one Gaines was holding over him. Victor didn’t understand why Victoria invited Billy, especially after the information Victor just received from Adam. Victor said that a man fitting Gaines’ description was on the chartered flight Billy took to Italy.

Nikki joined Victoria outside. Victoria said she wasn’t thrilled Nick was here, but she was letting him stay. Nikki thought Victoria made the right choice. Jack came up and complimented the palazzo. Victoria wished she’d been able to go to Summer and Kyle’s wedding, but she was glad they were coming to hers so she could congratulate them in person. Jack mentioned that they were bringing Harrison, and Victoria said that Ashland was excited to see his son. Victoria excused herself to check on something. Jack mentioned to Nikki that Victoria seemed tense. Nikki suggested it was a wedding thing, and she reminded Jack that she was a bundle of nerves on both their wedding days. Jack said he heard there was friction between Nick and Victoria. Nick admitted that was true. Jack thought that was natural, and he said he’d been in that situation with his sister more times than he could count. He was sure things would be fine.

Nikki said the wedding would be small, and the reception would be grand. Elena and Nate walked out. They all chatted, and Jack was surprised to hear that Nate was Ashland’s best man. He didn’t know they knew each other well. Nate said it was a new friendship, but a strong one. Jack stated that Ashland was a man of many surprises. Elena talked about the beauty of the estate, and Nikki said she and Victor had many romantic holidays here. Jack said you could almost feel the magic of Tuscany in the air.

Victoria went inside. Her son, Reed called to apologetically tell her he couldn’t make it. She understood. He asked how she was, and she said that everything was perfect.

Back upstairs, Victor told Ashland that they had to think of a way to handle this. Ashland asked how Gaines made it to Italy without Victor knowing. Victoria walked in and asked what was going on.

Billy went back to the room to get Gaines, but he was nowhere to be seen.

Nick came into his bedroom looking dejected. He said his sister wasn’t in a forgiving mood. Phyllis asked if his parents interceded with Victoria, and he said no because they were on Team-Ashland. Nick said Victoria said he could come to the wedding, but he still didn’t feel great about it because she only letting him go because she wanted to stop arguing. Phyllis thought that Nick did everything he could to fix this. She didn’t get why Victoria was acting this way, and she said maybe it was a bridezilla thing. Phyllis thought Victoria was being petty and treating Nick like dirt. Phyllis didn’t like it. Nick contended that Victoria had a right to her feelings. He didn’t want Phyllis to start trashing his sister. He said he’d deal with his own battle. She knew it was his battle, but she wanted him to know she was in the trenches with him. He felt bad. All he wanted to do was help his sister, but he hurt her. He didn’t want to cast a shadow over her wedding by staying.

Adam: Billy, whatever shred of decency you have left, whatever affection you still feel for Victoria should be enough to make you realize that you have to let her live her life. Why are you so hell-bent on sabotaging her happiness?

Billy: Actually, I’m trying to ensure her happiness.

Adam: Is that what you tell yourself? Man, how do you sleep at night?

Billy: Like a baby. Because I am entirely at peace with trying to stop Victoria from marrying a deceitful, duplicitous man like Ashland Locke.

Adam: Whatever the guy is or he isn’t, none of us — not me, not Victor, and certainly not you — have the right to throw stones. So, by tracking down this guy from his past, you just look petty and —

Billy: Oh, my god. I have no idea what you’re talking about. You keep mentioning this guy. Jamie Gams or whatever the hell his name is?


Billy: And it didn’t bother you then. Didn’t even raise a question. So, is there a specific threat that this guy poses now? Because so far, you’ve given me a bunch of basic information that, honestly, any tool could’ve looked up.

Adam: You were the threat, Billy, and this impulse to interfere in Victoria’s life.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] There’s one good thing about knowing you for as long as i have. I can see right through you, and you’ve got nothing. You know what happened? Your father called you and told you to jump, and you said, “how high?” Your own father doesn’t trust you with the details. Who’s pathetic now?

Ashland: I’m hoping a genuine Italian espresso will give me the jolt that I need. I didn’t sleep very well.

Victoria: Was your bed not comfortable?

Ashland: [ Sigh deeply ] Well, [Smacks lips] I couldn’t get past the fact that you weren’t in it.

Victoria: Oh, I see. So, I’m the reason for your insomnia?

Ashland: No, I did not say that. I know that I have to give you all the space that you needed.


Nikki: Oh, just beautiful. I mean, not as big of an affair as yours, of course, but it was just so simple and elegant. And, oh, do I have some photos to show you.

Victor: Some photos? How about 800 of them

Adam: I’m looking for gaines.

Billy: Who?

Adam: Jesse gaines. Are you really gonna pretend like you don’t know who he is, billy?

Billy: I’ll pretend however i have to to get you the hell out of here so I can go upstairs and pack for tuscany.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Relax, billy. You can sleep in tomorrow, because you’re not going to tuscany. You’re not getting anywhere near victoria’s wedding.

Billy: Yeah, and who’s gonna stop me, adam, you?

Adam: If you’re smart, it won’t come to that. You’ll stop yourself from making a move that, I promise you, you will live to regret.

Victoria: Are you hiding out in here?

Ashland: I was hoping you would join me. We haven’t had a chance to talk since your parents arrived and you made it clear that the wedding was still on.

Victoria: What is there to talk about? Everything’s happening as planned.

Ashland: Well, I wanted to know more about your decision process.

Victoria: Why? You seemed happy when you heard the news.

Ashland: I was. I am. But —

Victoria: Something has changed?

Ashland: [ Sighs ] I want nothing more in this life than to be your husband, and i was thrilled to hear that you still intend to walk down that aisle, but…now I’m not sure you should. I think…perhaps I should call off the wedding.

Victor: Baby. I’m surprised you’re back so soon. I thought you were checking on the wedding preparations.

Nikki: Ah, yes, I was. Kind of.

Victor: What do you mean “kind of”?

Nikki: I was speaking with ashland.

Victor: Oh.

Nikki: After hearing everything he finally confessed to victoria, I was urging him to back out of the wedding.

Victor: You did what?

Nikki: Of course, I don’t know if he will or not, but he knows how I feel.

Victor: How could you? We are sending mixed messages. I just told victoria how happy i was that she was marrying ashland.

Tessa: [ Sighs ] I just wish you were coming to italy like we originally planned. I’m gonna hate being there without you, and I don’t like the idea of you being by yourself here.

Mariah: Why? Are you scared to leave me alone?

Tessa: I didn’t say that.

Mariah: You didn’t have to. You are worried that I’m gonna fall apart or I’m gonna start freaking out over dominic.

Tessa: Okay, you’re putting words in my mouth. I didn’t think anything like that. I’m not scared to leave you alone, but, yeah, I’m concerned.

Mariah: It’s fine. I’m going to be fine. I’m not in crisis mode. I just want to be nearby in case dominic still has a cold or any problems come up.

Tessa: Okay, um…well, what exactly are you going to do if something comes up?

Mariah: I still want to be the person who protects him like I did before he was born. My mind knows that it isn’t my job. It’s just that my heart — my heart hasn’t caught up.

Tessa: I get that. I’m sorry.

Mariah: I’m doing my best to accept that my role in the baby’s life has changed. That’s why I’m keeping my distance from him.

Tessa: Except you aren’t, really, if you feel like you need to be within a 10-mile radius of him just in case.

Mariah: I realize that it doesn’t make a lot of sense to you, but that’s just what i need.

Tessa: Okay, I’m sorry. I just — I just — I really want you to get back to your old self again. No, I’m sorry, scratch that. I don’t want you to erase what happened. I know that that experience changed you, and that’s fine by me. I love every version of you. All I care about is helping you find your way back to being happy again.

Mariah: Well, I know something that would make me happy — having a baby of our own. You know, it would give me a new sense of focus and purpose, but you took that completely off the table, so where do I go from here?

Additional sponsorship

provided by… doesn’t your family deserve the best?

Tessa: All I want is for us to take our time and really plan for our future as parents. You know what? That gives me an idea. If you come to tuscany, after the wedding, maybe we can stay in italy for a few days and just bop around.

Mariah: How many times do i have to tell you? I am not comfortable with going.

Tessa: Well, just, you know, think about it. I mean, it could be a mini vacation. Just picture us in rome, walking around the pantheon. Maybe being somewhere that’s thousands of years old would give us some perspective.

Mariah: So, contemplating ancient ruins with tourists and souvenir salesmen. Yeah, I just don’t think that I’m up for it.

Tessa: Okay, well, then we will just do something that’s not in the guidebooks. Oh, maybe that italian metal band that we like that won eurovision, maybe they’re doing a gig. Maybe just screaming in a crowd of thousands of people after being with the fancy newmans will really be what we need.

Mariah: That does sound like us. And I haven’t been to a concert in so long.

Tessa: It would be fun, cathartic. And afterward, when we’re relaxed and rejuvenated, we can start talking about a family.

Mariah: So, now it sounds suspiciously like a bribe. Luring me to tuscany with the promises of planning for our future baby?

Tessa: Is it working?

Victoria: Why would you change your mind about going through with the wedding?

Ashland: Because I wasn’t seeing beyond what I wanted, until I spoke with nikki.

Victoria: What did my mother say to you?

Ashland: She was worried that you were moving forward with the wedding for all the wrong reasons. And if that’s true, that would devastate me. I want you to be happy. I want this to be the best day of your life, and if it’s not…

Victoria: I know my mother meant well, but she’s wrong. I’m doing exactly what I need to do.

Ashland: Marrying me to avoid questions and the potential scandal, to protect the company.

Victoria: It’s in both of our best interests.

Ashland: You know, a year ago, I would have been right there with you. Guard the company at all costs. That was always my standard operating procedure.

Victoria: It’s not anymore?

Ashland: No. Your love has profoundly changed me. And I know I betrayed that love by keeping secrets from you. And I can see how deeply wounded you are. Earlier, when you could barely look at me when you were talking about the wedding preparations? That destroyed me. I do not want you to go through with this marriage if your heart is no longer in it.

Nikki: After everything ashland has kept from victoria, you’re okay with this wedding? How are you not as shocked as i am? Oh. Oh.

Victor: What?

Nikki: How long have you known the details about ashland’s past?

Victor: Oh, a while.

Nikki: Mm-hmm. And you kept it quiet from me and from our daughter.

Victor: Let me just say i didn’t want the press to get ahold of the information, alright? And I certainly didn’t want billy boy to get ahold of it.

Nikki: Well, what exactly does billy know?

Victor: How the hell do i know? I think he’s continued the investigation as we speak.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] I could say a lot about him, also about how you have handled this, but I am mostly concerned about victoria.

Victor: Sweetheart, obviously, so am I.

Nikki: How can you believe it’s a good idea for victoria to get married simply because she thinks it’s good for business? Obviously, her heart is broken.

Adam: Time to wake up. Victoria made her choice. She’s marrying ashland.

Billy: Well, it’s not over until she says “I do.”

Adam: Billy, whatever shred of decency you have left, whatever affection you still feel for victoria should be enough to make you realize that you have to let her live her life. Why are you so hell-bent on sabotaging her happiness?

Billy: Actually, I’m trying to ensure her happiness.

Adam: Is that what you tell yourself? Man, how do you sleep at night?

Billy: Like a baby. Because I am entirely at peace with trying to stop victoria from marrying a deceitful, duplicitous man like ashland locke.

Adam: Whatever the guy is or he isn’t, none of us — not me, not victor, and certainly not you — have the right to throw stones. So by tracking down this guy from his past, you just look petty and —

Billy: Oh, my god. I have no idea what you’re talking about. You keep mentioning this guy. Jamie gams or whatever the hell his name is?

Adam: Jesse gaines. Just come off of it. I know you met with this shady character from his past, that goes all the way back to when he started his career. So you know the guy’s father was the lawyer for the woman that gave him his first break.

Billy: Wow, adam, you should be a private investigator, ’cause that’s really great information right there. And this gaines guy sounds like he’s got a really great story, but what I am most intrigued about right now in this moment is you running over here at this hour, wondering if I’m meeting with some guy, when you should be on a plane.

Adam: You gave away your hand when you were practically bragging that someone was gonna help victoria see the light. That was gaines.

Billy: And it didn’t bother you then. Didn’t even raise a question. So is there a specific threat that this guy poses now? Because so far, you’ve given me a bunch of basic information that, honestly, any tool could’ve looked up.

Adam: You were the threat, billy, and this impulse to interfere in victoria’s life.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] There’s one good thing about knowing you for as long as i have. I can see right through you, and you’ve got nothing. You know what happened? Your father called you and told you to jump, and you said, “how high?” Your own father doesn’t trust you with the details. Who’s pathetic now?


Victor: Sweetheart, if i thought for one moment that marrying ashland would be to victoria’s detriment, I would have asked her to walk away, i would have done that. You know that.

Nikki: Yes, but I don’t know that you are seeing her true feelings underneath her armor. I mean, she always wants to appear to be so tough and in control in front of you, but she’s gotten very good at hiding her hurt and pain.

Victor: Well, I’m not pretending that, you know, she’ll solve the situation with a snap of her fingers. All I know is that she loves him. He loves her. I think that’s the most important thing for our daughter, I really do. I mean, I know that he desperately wants to spend whatever time he has left in his life with her.

Nikki: Well, god knows I want her to be happy. And if this marriage will make her happy, I will support it.

Victor: Well, then let’s not stand in her way.

Adam: I’m actually on the inside of this situation. You are one that’s on the outside with your little nose pressed up against the glass, so whatever you’re trying to do, billy, it’s not gonna work.

Billy: Oh, you mean tell the truth?

Adam: No. Divert attention away from the matter at hand. Now, my father and I, we are in complete agreement that victoria deserves to have her wedding go off without a hitch.

Billy: Can we please skip this little dance? You try to convince me that you’re a changed man and you’ve turned the corner and you’re actually somewhat of a decent human being or a good brother?

Adam: It’s fine by me. I don’t give a damn about your opinion because I know that i have changed.

Billy: No, adam, you don’t give a damn about your sister, and she barely tolerates you.

Adam: I’m not gonna pretend like we’re close, but things are a lot better than they’ve ever been, and you know what? I respect her as a businesswoman.

Billy: That’s very sweet of you, and you should, because your father does. He put her in charge. Yes, he’s had somebody else sit in that chair over the years, but he’s always looked over their shoulder, micro-managing them. Not this time. He has fully put her in charge.

Adam: Yeah, ’cause he’s focused on his new venture with me.

Billy: That’s what it is. It’s got to kill you that you got the consolation prize, right? You’re stuck with newman media.

Adam: I’m thrilled to be at the helm of newman media. I’m proud to be working with my father, and I’m actually doing everything I can to restore my relationships with my brother and my sisters. See, I’m not out to destroy anyone’s life, unlike you, billy, because you are now the destructive one.

Billy: I am protecting victoria and my kids.

Adam: I don’t buy that for a second. Victoria can take care of herself and johnny and katie. She doesn’t need you to save her or help her, and that’s why i know this isn’t even about her, it’s about you and your jealousy and insecurity to let go in this little delusional belief that you know what’s best.

Billy: Okay. I am not jealous. That’s not what this is about.

Adam: You may have moved on from victoria a long time ago, but it kills you that she moved on and she’s marrying a man that is superior to you in so many ways, billy. He’s a better businessman than you. He’s an actual grown-up, not a man-child, and I’m sure that he will treat her better than you ever will.

Billy: Are you the president of his fan club all of a sudden?

Adam: No, I’ll leave that title to victoria. But I’ve gotten to know the guy a little bit, and I like him. But the most important thing is I think he’s a good influence on your kids.

Billy: Don’t mention me and don’t mention victoria and don’t ever talk about my kids.

Adam: Relax. We’re just talking.

Billy: You got a plane to catch, and so do I. So unless you plan to drug me and lock me away until after the wedding, get the hell out of here.

Adam: You know, I don’t have to stop you, billy, ’cause you’re gonna fail. This whole thing, it’s gonna blow up in your face. And, man, I can’t wait to have a front-row seat to your humiliation.

[ Scoffs ]

Victoria: You think you have me all figured out, but even when I was furious with you, I never said that my heart wasn’t in it.

Ashland: I’m so sorry that i hurt you by hiding the truth. And I’m sorry that the person that I was all those years ago has come back to threaten what we have built together. For decades, I have done everything in my power to preserve my success. The irony of all of that is not lost on me. Not in comparison to what you feel about me. The real me. And now that you know the entire story…what are you thinking when you look at me?

Victoria: When I couldn’t sleep last night, all I could think about was what you told me about your past. And I asked myself what would i do if I was in your position.

Ashland: I have no doubt that you would have done the morally right thing in each instance, because you’re a good person.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ]

Ashland: And there is a line that you would never cross.

Victoria: What does that make you?

Ashland: A ruthless, sometimes self-serving man who wants to be better. Because of you. And I want to live because of you. And I want a chance to make amends because of you.

Victoria: I believe you. I do, and I want to give you that chance.

[ Sighs ] Because, despite everything, i love you. I always will. I still want to be your wife.

Ashland: God, I love you.


Mariah: Your offer is tempting. I would love to spend some time with you in italy.

Tessa: So join me.

Mariah: Tessa, I wish i could, but I am not ready to pull away from dominic. That’s just my reality.

Tessa: Okay.

Mariah: Moving out of the mansion was a huge step for me, the correct step. But I still have a lot of issues that I need to take care of so i can comfortably disconnect in a healthy way. Abby is dominic’s mom. I know that she’s gonna take care of him. But what if I’m gone and he needs breast milk?

Tessa: Well…there are other options.

Mariah: I know. Abby talked about switching to formula, but I still want to make it clear that I’m here and I’m willing to provide for him. So that means that I ne– I need to stick around. Hopefully you understand?

Tessa: Yeah, I understand… that you’re making a lot of excuses.

Gaines: You hid me upstairs like a mistresS.

Billy: You overstate your allure.

Gaines: Was that who I think it was?

Billy: Yeah, it was adam newman.

Gaines: Victor newman’s son. That’s not good.

Billy: It’s fine, okay? He did not know you were upstairs. Everything’s gonna be okay. But right now, we got to get the show on the road. So let’s go to the airport.

Gaines: Wait a minute, i never agreed to a trip to tuscany with you. That wasn’t part of our arrangement. You see, this is where I say it was a pleasure doing business with you. Ciao.

Billy: No, no, no, you’re not saying ciao. Okay, you need to come with me. I will make it worth your while.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ]

Elena: Ooh.

Nate: I told you we were too early.

Ashland: [ Clears throat ]

Victoria: Oh. Hi, welcome!

Ashland: How was the flight over?

Elena: Hey, it was perfect. I mean, it was a private jet. How could it not be? There were no babies crying, no one kicking the back of my seat or hogging the arm rest, and we had champagne.

Nate: Mm, thank you for arranging all of that.

Ashland: Well, it’s my pleasure. It’s the least I can do for my best man and his lovely lady.

Nate: Just so you know, I am taking my duties seriously. Anything you need, I am here for you. And, victoria, as your friend, too, my wedding party responsibilities don’t stop with ashland.

Victoria: Oh, so kind of you, but, listen, my only request is that you enjoy every moment and you show elena a great time. Everything’s under control.

Elena: [ Chuckles ]

Ashland: Why don’t I show you guys to your room and give you the lay of the land. Excuse me. Right this way. You have always loved vicks vapors.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Gaines: As much as I would love to continue to pad my bank account, there are other factors to consider on a jaunt to italy.

Billy: Like what?

Gaines: You would basically be delivering me into the hands of the two men that I betrayed. How do I know that I can trust you, that you won’t use me and then screw me over and throw me to the wolves?

Billy: Because we want the same thing and you just helped me out big time, okay? So there’s nothing you need to worry about. I’ve got your back.

Gaines: [ Sighs ]

Billy: Listen to me. Neither victor nor ashland are ever gonna do anything with that many people in attendance. We get in, we get out. Everything is fine. The only thing you need to do is tell victoria everything you told me here tonight. Show her the letter proving that ashland locke broke the law and that his career, everything he’s ever done, is built on a pack of lies.

Gaines: You know, it sounds simple enough, but these things have a way of quickly becoming complicated and dangerous.

Billy: You need to trust me. I will get you out of there safely without an ounce of risk. And we can come up with another financial arrangement that squashes your concerns about being in the same location as lurch and locke.

Gaines: While I am feeling a little bit more open-minded, I’m still not fully on board here.

Billy: Okay. Well, there’s one more argument that I can make. There is something in this for you far sweeter than any amount of money.

Nate: Hey, hey, hey. You seem a little unsteady. Are you okay?

Ashland: You know, I’m gonna say this to you and only you, I’m not feeling that great, but I will be damned if I’m going to let anything get in the way of this wedding to victoria.

Elena: That view is unbelievably stunning.

Ashland: I agree. I can’t imagine a more perfect setting for this ceremony, and i want you to thank you so much for your sage advice and support the other day when I was feeling down. I took your advice, and i followed my heart. And it seems like it worked out pretty well.

Elena: I think you should tell him.

Nate: I don’t want to bring the mood down, but elena and i bumped into billy before we took off. He alluded to some information he learned about you. Maybe some of the things you were concerned about when you and I last spoke.

Elena: He made it very clear that he hopes the wedding won’t happen.

Ashland: Yeah, well, I truly appreciate your warning, but victoria and I and her parents are fully aware of billy’s intentions, and despite whatever he may think, there’s nothing he can do to stop the wedding.

Nate: Well, that’s good to hear.

Ashland: Listen, this has nothing to do with the two of you. I want you guys to go settle in, go get a glass of wine or two, and I’ll catch up with you in a little while, okay?

Nate: Alright, thanks.

Ashland: Thank you.

Elena: See you soon. Well, I’m glad ashland doesn’t seem worried, ’cause it would be a shame if billy caused trouble in paradise. Because this place is definitely paradise.

[ Chuckles ]

Nate: Look at you. You seem calmer and looser than you’ve been in weeks.

Elena: You know, I think i really am. Although, I was a bit anxious when we were driving through florence. I mean, there’s so much to see. I don’t know how we’re gonna get it all in. From sight-seeing to wedding festivities, and we’re only here a few days.

Nate: We can’t, but I have a solution. We could plan a trip to come back, see all the tourist-y things.

Elena: Well, I would love that.

Nate: But we need to prioritize what we want to see the most on this trip.

Elena: Well, you’re the expert. What are your can’t-miss sights?

Nate: The theater of silence. It’s this serene natural amphitheater, and there’s this jaw-dropping waterfall nearby.

Elena: Well, I would love to see that with you. Although, if your plan was to get me to relax, you’re failing, because the thought of being with you in such an idyllic place makes my heart race.

Nate: Mine, too.

Victor: Wow.

Nikki: [ Sighs ]

Victor: The ambiance.

Nikki: It is magical.

Victor: I think just being here is going to — is going to help ashland and victoria along, you know? I mean, who can help but fall in love more?

Nikki: [ Chuckles ] No one.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Victor: Oh.

[ Sighs ] Yeah, so…I got to take this, okay?

Nikki: What? What’s going on?

Victor: I have to take care of something, my love.

Nikki: Oh.

Victor: Be right back.


Mariah: I am not making excuses. I have legit reasons for wanting to stay in genoa city.

Tessa: I didn’t intend to sound harsh. I get it, it just — ah! This is all so complicated. I didn’t mean to put any pressure on you or make you feel like I’m not with you 100%, because I am.

Mariah: Well, sometimes it doesn’t feel that way.

Tessa: This is hard. For both of us. And it just came out the wrong way. I promised I wouldn’t let you go through any of this alone, and i meant it. I’m here for you, and I’m here to help you in any way I can.

Mariah: Then stay with me. Please, don’t go to the wedding.

Nikki: Benvenuti!

Elena: Nikki! You look gorgeous. Mwah!

Nikki: Oh, thank you. So do you. Italy brings out the best in everybody.

Nate: Thank you for having us, nikki.

Nikki: I’m just so happy that you could be here, and I am thrilled to be the matron of honor to your best man.

Nate: Oh, well, the honor is all mine.

Nikki: [ Chuckles ]

Elena: And this palazzo is gorgeous.

Nikki: Oh, thank you. Isn’t it something? Victor and I gave it to victoria and ashland for their wedding present.

Nate: Wow. [ Chuckles ] That is one amazing gift.

Elena: Yes, and I’m sure it’s gonna be filled with lots of special memories for the newlyweds.

Nikki: Oh, I hope so.

Nate: And I’m looking forward to catching up with you and victor.

Nikki: Well, so are we. Victor had to step out for a minute. You know my husband, it’s always something.

[ Light laughter ]

Adam: Gaines was spotted entering billy’s apartment building tonight. So I went over there and i confronted billy about it, who denied knowing who the guy was, but he was being even more smug than usual, so I think the two of them are colluding.

Victor: Really?

Adam: I did everything i could to try to dissuade him from coming to italy, but he seems more fired up than even before to stop the wedding.

Victor: Well, son, I’m not blaming you, okay? I know you did everything you could.

Adam: Well, I was at a slight disadvantage since you didn’t give me any specifics on gaines or how he’s a threat to victoria and ashland.

Victor: I did not tell you because I didn’t trust you — nothing to do with that. I just didn’t want to disseminate the information for victoria’s sake, alright? I hadn’t even told nikki about it.

Adam: But you need to tell me now. The more that I know, the more that I can help. And I want to do whatever I can to help you and victoria.

Victor: Okay, I’ll tell you everything.

Gaines: What is that you think is sweeter than money? ‘Cause I can’t think of much.

Billy: Revenge. What did you say when you mentioned you resented ashland? You rightfully resented him for practically stealing your father from you. He got all the praise, he got all the accolades, and you — you got shoved to the sidelines.

Gaines: You really do understand.

Billy: I know a little something about being a black sheep of the family. I’m gonna be honest, jesse, your situation is worse, ’cause ashland used your father for his own good. And sure, he paid you off along the way, but you never got any respect. He still looks down his nose at you.

Gaines: Which is why I am happy to help you expose him for what and who he is. Yeah, it would be a magnificent moment.

Billy: Think about how satisfying it would be to know that you were a part of it. To take down ashland locke. I mean, you’d be able to see the look on his face when he realizes that you were the one with the power all along.

Gaines: You do make a persuasive argument.

Billy: So?

Gaines: When do we leave?

Billy: We’ll get the last flight out. I got to finish packing, make a phone call. Grab yourself a drink or a bite to eat. Make yourself comfortable.

Gaines: Don’t mind if I do. Hey, billy.

Billy: Yeah?

Gaines: This trip is gonna be one for the ages.

Billy: Yeah, it is. You’ll get your long-deserved revenge, and I will stop someone that I care very much about from making one of the biggest mistakes of her life. We’re for those who love to discover.

Mariah: I doubt it would be a problem if you backed out of the performance. I heard that leslie brooks is gonna be there. One fabulous musician should be enough. Or you could say that you’re sick.

Tessa: No, mariah, I can’t do that.

Mariah: Why not?

Tessa: It’s too late. It wouldn’t be right. They’re counting on me.

Mariah: Yeah, yeah, I am — I’m sorry.

Tessa: Yeah, it would be really unprofessional.

Mariah: You’re right. Go, have — have a great time. I’m gonna let you finish packing.

Tessa: Whoa, no, no, no, no. Hey. We have to keep talking about this.

Mariah: No, it’s fine. We don’t have to. We can — we can talk when you get back.

Adam: Ashland has been paying gaines for years to keep the original camilla rhodes letter quiet? Guy built his entire empire off stolen money from mentor’s estate? That’s quite a lot to process. How’s victoria handling it?

Victor: Well, I think her relationship with ashland transcends everything that happened years ago.

Adam: I’m glad to hear that.

Victor: To be frank with you, I think those two belong together.

Adam: And they will be, unless billy shows up shooting his mouth off. Not only would that be mortifying for victoria and ashland, but it would destroy ashland’s legacy, not to mention damage newman/locke and newman media.

Victor: How did you end things with billy?

Adam: I told him he’d be shooting himself in the foot and he would fail, because that’s what billy does. But I’m not sure we can even count on him to fail properly, and I don’t even know if gaines is still in the picture.

Victor: I paid that gaines S.O.B. A lot of money to go away. He didn’T. He broke his word to me.

Adam: So how far do you want me to go to stop them?

Billy: I just wanted to check in with you. I’m just about to leave for italy. How’s california? Oh, good, okay. And how’s mattie? Oh, great. I’m glad to hear that. Yeah, johnny and katie are good. Hannah’s gonna have them all packed up and ready to go when you get back, but I’ll keep you posted. You might not actually have to get on that flight, because if everything goes the way I think it will, there won’t be a wedding to attend.

Elena: Being here, you’re just so transported.

Ashland: It’s a magnificent venue, huh?

Victoria: We just want all of our guests to feel like they’re, you know, like they’re a part of the family, at home with us, enjoying a beautiful celebration.

Nate: Oh, we do.

Victoria: You know, if you guys ever decide to get married, we could loan you the palazzo.

Nate: [ Clears throat ]

Elena: [ Chuckles ] We’ll have to keep that in mind.

Nate: Uh, yeah. Well, you two are making tying the knot look pretty appealing.

Elena: Absolutely. Relationship goals.

Victoria: Well, let me just say, it’s never easy, but communication is key.

Ashland: Just keep talking.

Victor: Well, hello, everybody.

Ashland: Here he is!

Nikki: Hi, darling.

Victor: Don’t let me interrupt.

Victoria: Oh, you’re not. No, not at all. Ashland and I were just saying how lucky we are to have made it this far. And the best is yet to come.

Nate: Mm-hmm.

Victor: See? Everything is going well. And it will continue to go well.

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

Jack: You can almost feel the magic of tuscany in the air.

Nikki: Perfect for a wedding.

Summer: Buona sera, everybody.

Nikki: Oh!

[ Indistinct speaking ]

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Leslie: Where’s the happy couple?

Victor: My goodness, leslie brooks. How nice to see you.

Ashland: Just in case you have any plans to disrupt the wedding, there’s something you should know.

Victor: The hell are you doing here?

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Ashland: Good morning.

Victoria: Good morning.

Ashland: I’m hoping a genuine italian espresso will give me the jolt that I need. I didn’t sleep very well.

Victoria: Was your bed not comfortable?

Ashland: [ Sigh deeply ] Well, [Smacks lips] I couldn’t get past the fact that you weren’t in it.

Victoria: Oh, I see. So, I’m the reason for your insomnia?

Ashland: No, I did not say that. I know that I have to give you all the space that you need because what I [Inhales deeply] Told you about my past is a lot to process.

[ Sighs ] How did you sleep?

Victoria: I probably did more thinking than I did sleeping.

Ashland: Oh, last night, uh, your primary concern seemed to be about the company. And now that i’ve told you

[Sighs] Everything about my past, and you’ve had time to work through it, I want to know where your head is at. M-more importantly… where’s your heart? Are we having a wedding?

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Nikki: Victoria?

Victor: What good news!

Nikki: Ashland? What are you both doing here?

Billy: Yes, lily is flying back from california. Then, she’s gonna pick up johnny and katie. The three of them together will fly to italy. I’m going earlier. There’s a work emergency — a fire that I need to put out. One other thing, hannah. Do you mind letting victoria know the change of plans? She’s not taking my calls at the moment. Yeah. Okay, I appreciate it. I will. Thank you.

Gaines: Putting out fires, huh? Seems like you’re more interested in burning everything down.

Sally: So, I reached out to a bunch of fashion people in L.A.

Chloe: I thought you ruined all of your relationships there.

Sally: I did. Which is why, when I casually mentioned that I was going to the newman-locke wedding and hinted that there would be some fashion news to follow, I knew that they would turn around to everyone that they knew and say, “guess what sally spectra is up to now.”

Chloe: I can’t believe I let you talk me into this. Our plan now relies on gossipmongers.

Sally: Yeah, well, if we can’t rely on them to spread rumors, you can’t count on anything in this world.

Chloe: It’s just so risky. I mean, and if anything comes out about that wedding, we should be the ones publishing it.

Sally: Okay, first of all, stop saying “if.” There will be news. And second, if newman media’s new fashion platform puts out a story about me designing victoria’s wedding dress, it will look self-serving. But if another outlet does it, it’s a hot scoop. This way, we can get credibility from all these other sources.

Chloe: Okay. I like it. So, we pretend that we got scooped, but we are the ones who really planted the story.

Sally: It’ll be a huge boost for us.

Chloe: Now all you have to do is fly across the ocean with the dress and convince victoria to wear it just days before she walks down the aisle. What could possibly go wrong?

Adam: Any luck finding gaines?

[ Sighs ] Alright. Well, just keep searching. He’s got to be out there somewhere, and I have to find him before I get on a plane to italy.

Victoria: What are you doing here? Aren’t you supposed to be in milan?

Victoria: We left right after the ceremony so that we could come here and make sure everything was ready for your arrival. I am your matron of honor, after all.

Victoria: But we weren’t expecting you for another day. Is there something —

Victor: We just wanted to make sure that everything’s alright, you know? It’s a beautiful day outside. Going to be like that for the rest of the week. Ideal for a wedding. Nope

Additional sponsorship

provided by…

Nikki: Well, I’m glad that we all got here early. It’ll give us a chance to all go over the details, make sure everything is perfect. So, do you have any big concerns about anything?

Victoria: You know, before we get into that, I would love to hear about summer and kyle’s wedding.

Nikki: Oh, just beautiful. I mean, not as big of an affair as yours, of course, but it was just so simple and elegant. And, oh, do I have some photos to show you.

Victor: Some photos? How about 800 of them?

[ Laughter ]

Nikki: Well, he’s not half wrong, there. Wait until you see summer in her marchetti gown. Exquisite. And she and kyle are so much in love, and that really came through in the ceremony.

Victoria: I’m so glad.

Nikki: But the best part of the wedding was little harrison. You know, he was our ring bearer, or as he liked to call it, “ring barrel.”

[ Laughter ]

Victor: By the way, he was the star of the show, you know.

Ashland: Yes.

Victor: And he’s so looking forward to doing the same thing for the two of you.

Ashland: Aww, can’t wait to see him.

Nikki: So, um, is everything good here?

Victoria: Y-yes, everything’s fine. We just wanted to get here early so that I could see firsthand that all of the preparations were being handled on schedule.

Nikki: And is everything to your satisfaction?

Victoria: Oh, so far, yes. But I’d like to show you the terrace. Maybe you have some additional ideas for the decorations.

Nikki: Oh. Sure.

Ashland: [ Inhales deeply ] I’m guessing that you didn’t rush here from milan to check on the floral arrangements.

Victor: I have news from home that’s got me concerned.

Victoria: So, after we got here, ashland finally came clean about the part of his past that he finds so shameful. It has to do with his former mentor, camilla rhodes, and how he acquired her tv stations.

Nikki: Oh. I know a lot of people have questions about that.

Victoria: Billy and nick. And as it turns out, there was something to their suspicions. When camilla passed away, she —

[Sighs] She left ashland her estate.

Nikki: Okay, well, that’s a simple explanation.

Victoria: No, no, mom, unfortunately, it isn’t that simple because she didn’t actually leave him anything. Ashland was working together with camilla’s lawyer, and — and they forged a — a letter that added him to her will.

Nikki: Are you kidding me?!

Victoria: No, I’m not. I’m not kidding you.

Nikki: My god! You know, you’d think that he would have told you, before you got to italy, that his entire empire is based on not a lie but a crime.

Victoria: Great.

Nikki: Oh, you were right to worry that there would be more secrets. This is a big one. And who’s to say it’s the last?

Victoria: I think that it might be. He swears that it is. And I’m inclined to believe him, because I — I let him know that I will not any more lies. I just — I wish he would have come to me with this in the first place.

Nikki: Oh, my darling, I feel so awful for you. I know how much you were looking forward to this week and everything. What can we do? Listen… if you want to cancel the wedding, I will contact the planner, and she will cancel it. She will alert all of the guests — hopefully, before they travel. And then you don’t have to put yourself through that.

Ashland: I don’t know if i can take anymore bad news.

Victor: Let’s have a seat. I got to tell you, that billy boy abbott is trying to start more trouble by digging into your past.

Ashland: Well, I knew that already.

Victor: One thing I need to warn you about. He may seem like an idiot at times — and he is — but he’s wily and tenacious. I’ve having my son adam watch him.

Ashland: Well, victor, I’m — I appreciate that, but I’m really not worried anymore. I’ve told victoria everything. Nobody has any leverage to hold over my head. Granted, I don’t want the story to go public. But you took care of gaines, right?

Victor: That’s the problem. Gaines has slipped off my radar.

Ashland: What? You don’t know where he is?

Victor: Don’t you worry about a thing. We’ll find him. Okay? I will allow no one or nothing to ruin my daughter’s big day.

Victoria: All that matters right now is protecting newman/locke. We can’t let the family business that we have all worked so hard for to be decimated by a scandal or the merger — this merger that is so important to our future.

Nikki: Merger or marriage? Because you seem to be mixing the two.

Victoria: Mother, I have looked at this from every angle. I can’t do anything that is gonna raise suspicions and cause some sort of an investigation into ashland or locke communications group.

Nikki: I understand that you are talking like a C.E.O. Right now, but I am speaking to you as your mother. What about your emotions?

Victoria: I cannot think about that right now. I need to focus. This wedding has to happen. It’s got to happen, mom.

[ Duffel bag zips ]

Billy: Well, that was quite the tale. Thank you for filling me in on ashland locke’s humble beginnings.

Gaines: Well, I love telling a good story, but I swear, all of that one is true.

Billy: Well, I expected something devious, but the audacity of a young man to forge a letter that will change camilla rhodes’ will, leaving her entire fortune to him, it’s almost impressive.

Gaines: Yeah, she wasn’t gonna leave him a cent. Ashland was desperate. I suppose that will be interesting to your readers if it’s worth all that to him.

Billy: That right there is not for clickbait. That’s to protect victoria from making a huge mistake, and every single dollar came from me personally. So I’m not letting you walk out of here until I have proof that the story you just told me is true.

Gaines: This should do the trick.

Billy: What is that?

Gaines: It’s a copy of the letter that she originally wrote to locke — the real one, not the one he and my father forged. It’s everything anyone needs to destroy ashland locke. We do it every night.

Gaines: Hold on, cowboy.

Billy: Jesse, we have a deal.

Gaines: Sure. This is a copy of the original. I’m not an idiot. And you don’t get anything unless I am guaranteed protection from victor.

Billy: There is a bag of cash sitting in front of you. And I told you that I will show you the exit plan to make sure that victor is off your back.

Gaines: I just need to know he won’t come after me.

Billy: And don’t kid yourself. He’s gonna come after you. But I will protect you.

[ Envelope taps tabletop ] Okay, you’re not gonna give me the letter, you read it to me right now.

Gaines: Alright.

[ Sighs ] “Dear ashland, you know I care deeply for you. You’re like a son I never had. Your drive and ambition have no limits. You have already overcome so much, and that struggle has been character-building” — yeah, certainly built him into a character, alright — a money-hungry tyrant — “which is why I’m not leaving you any inheritance. I feel it is in your best interests to make it on your own. Farewell, dear ashland. Go forth and prosper. I know you will. — Camilla.”

[ Paper rustling ]

Billy: A lot to digest in there. There’s one thing missing, though.

Gaines: What?

Billy: You said ashland and your father forged her deathbed letter, used as a codicil to change the will. Where’s your proof of that?

Chloe: Okay, well, I can follow up with some of my contacts in the morning. And if they haven’t heard anything about victoria’s wedding, I will just take a page out of your book, throw your name around, and plant a story of my own.

Sally: And if anyone wants you to go on record, deny it. It’ll intrigue them even more.

Chloe: I just really hope this doesn’t backfire.

Sally: This is everything we’ve ever wanted. Your big-picture plan was not just to be a platform for fashion news but a fashion powerhouse, complete with our own designs. So, here we go.

Chloe: [ Chuckles ] Okay. [ Chuckles ] You should really get ready soon. You have to meet adam.

Sally: Mm, it’s a private jet. They’ll wait.

Chloe: [ Chuckles ] I’m gonna go to the airport with you. I want to get one last glimpse of the wedding dress that is going to change our lives.

Nikki: You know who you sound like when you talk like that? Your father.

Victoria: [ Gasps ] My thinking on this is correct. There’s no deviation, no red flags that anyone from the outside can latch onto. We have to keep this contained.

Nikki: Darling, that might be smart for business, but not for you. I know how seriously you take your vows. Now, is this wedding just for show? Are you forcing yourself into a marriage that just shouldn’t happen?

Victoria: I am not forcing myself to do anything.

Nikki: Well, how do you know you’re not gonna be playing right into ashland’s hands?

Victoria: Would you stop it? I know what I’m doing. Ashland is smart enough to not try to keep anything else from me.

Nikki: And after all of this, you really think that the two of you could have a happy marriage?

Victoria: Look, I’ll handle it, alright? My one concern right now is billy.

Nikki: What about him?

Victoria: He seems very determined to derail the ceremony. He’s been leaving me messages, telling me that I’m making a mistake. He says that he has information that he thinks that i should know.

Nikki: Maybe he does.

Victoria: No, he doesn’T. Ashland has told me everything. Nothing that billy is gonna say to me is gonna be news to me. He cannot sway my decision about going through with this wedding. But he can ruin our plans if he finds out the truth and decides that he wants to expose this story to the world.

Gaines: This letter is all the evidence you need. Locke thinks so. He’s been paying me to keep it secret for years.

Billy: How did you get that?

Gaines: From my father’s dossier before he destroyed the evidence of the forgery.

Billy: And when was that?

Gaines: A long time ago.

Billy: And nobody else knew what they were up to?

Gaines: [ Sighs ] No.

Billy: A clerk, a secretary, no one?

Gaines: I sincerely doubt it. My father did all of this on his own. Camilla had no family. There was nobody interested in the will, and nobody to contest it when they filed the codicil.

Billy: What did she plan to do with everything, just bury it alongside her?

Gaines: Well, she had some charities set up, but they had no idea of her plans to bequeath them anything.

Billy: What charities? In a way, locke is stealing from them.

Gaines: She was eccentric. Exotic stuff — homes for wayward cats, exotic plants, things like that.

Billy: Oh, so, he got pissed off for being passed over by felines and flowers?

Gaines: No. Locke is a bastard and a master manipulator. He convinced my father that he had been wronged by camilla. And so they concocted this plan to create this false document so that he could set things right in his mind.

Billy: You seem to have a lot of animosity towards ashland.

Gaines: You’re damn right, I do. I told you, this is personal.

Billy: Yeah, you did. But you haven’t told me why yet. If you’re on medicare, remember,

Gaines: I spent my whole life jumping through hoops, trying to impress my father. He was a workaholic. It wasn’t easy getting his attention. And harder still to impress him. But when this kid showed up with camilla, he took to him right away, singing his praises. “Oh, that ashland is a real go-getter. It made me sick.

Billy: I understand that. So you wanted to do something about it.

Gaines: When ashland inherited all that money, I knew something was wrong. So I decided to do some digging, and I found, under lock and key, my father’s file on camilla rhodes. And there was the original will and the authentic letter explaining to him why he wasn’t gonna receive any inheritance. I made a snap decision. And I took the letter. Shortly thereafter, all the files were destroyed.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Good timing.

Gaines: I got lucky. And I told my father about it, he was angry. More ashamed than anything. He was adamant that I keep it to myself, because if the story got out, it would destroy him. So I kept it a secret all these years… till he died. I kept reading stories about ashland. I got angrier and angrier. I don’t know, maybe it was, uh, delayed grief for the father i had had stolen from me. Ashland needs to pay.

Billy: But he has been.

Gaines: That money that he’s given me means nothing to him. He built his life and his business on lies, and he pulled my father into that deceit.

Billy: But, jesse, it doesn’t sound like your father was blackmailed in any way. He seemed like a willing participant.

Gaines: My dad was a good man. He played by the rules his entire life until locke came along. He manipulated. Yeah, sure, he got some financial gain. The forged codicil gave him out a payment, locke offered him a lucrative position, so it seemed like a victimless crime. But that crime, it weighed on him, and I am certain that’s what drove him to an early grave. So, yeah. Yeah, it’s personal.

Billy: I don’t know if you’ve heard, but ashland locke could, potentially, be heading to a premature demise himself.

Gaines: Yeah. I know. I almost felt bad for him.

Billy: Almost?

Gaines: Made him seem human. But when I came here to get my final payoff, he was so dismissive and condescending.

Billy: You can’t blame a guy for being a little rude to the person that’s blackmailing him.

Gaines: Ashland locke is a fraud and a master manipulator. Camilla rhodes was right about one thing — he is a survivor. He’ll ruin people to save himself. That’s why I came back here, why I risked crossing victor newman to give you what you need to take locke down. I want my revenge. I want to blow up locke’s life while he is still alive to suffer.

Victor: How are you holding up? I know firsthand how difficult it is when the past catches up with you. It’s not affecting your health, is it?

Ashland: Not at all. I-I-I’m fine. [ Sighs ] The only thing weighing on me is the distress this is causing victoria. I hate that all of this is bringing her pain after she has brought me so much joy. And, hell, she’s given me a reason to live.

Victor: Well, we’ve got to stop the trouble that both billy boy abbott and gaines are causing.

Ashland: Well, that may be, but I’m the one to blame here, victor. The choices that I made in the past came back to haunt me. And even if it was decades ago, and I don’t see myself any longer as the man who made those choices, there it is.

Victor: Well, I respect you for taking responsibility. And I respect you for coming clean with my daughter about your past. That could not have been easy.

Ashland: I just hope it doesn’t mean I will lose victoria.

Nikki: I guess this wedding is going to happen. I hope you’ve changed your mind about letting your brother attend, because abby decided to stay home with the baby, and it would be nice to have some family for support.

Victoria: Well, adam will be there, won’t he?

Nikki: [ Laughing ] Oh, my god, are you hearing yourself? You can’t let him be your only sibling at the wedding. Nicholas was very upset that you rescinded his invitation.

Victoria: I guess he should have thought of that before he dug up dirt on my fiancé.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] I really think you are lashing out at the wrong people. Shouldn’t you be upset with the man who kept secrets from you?

Victoria: Oh, mother, how many secrets has dad kept from you over the years — things that have only come to light because he had no choice and he had to come clean about it?

Nikki: Far too many, and I’m trying to spare you that kind of pain.

Victoria: Look, mom, my point is, is that no marriage is perfect. I have looked at this closely, mother.

[ Sighs ] It’s not like ashland committed some crime against me and my family. What he did happened 40 years ago. There’s no need for us to relive it. It can just end here. And I should have been able to trust nicholas.

Nikki: You can.

Victoria: No, I can’T. He betrayed my confidence. He should have stood by my side, which is exactly what I would have done if the roles were reversed. What nicholas did — it hurt me more than anything.

Nikki: Alright, alright.

[ Sighs ] I don’t want to argue with you. You don’t want to listen to what I have to say anyway. Just answer me this. What do you feel in your heart about ashland?

Victoria: I don’t know.

Adam: You know I love you, right? That’s right. I’m your dad, so I can say it no matter how old you get. I love you, connor newman. How do you like that?

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, I, uh — I’ll bring you back something from italy, okay? Alright? Love you. Good night.

Sally: How’s your son?

Adam: He is more excited about me going to italy than I am. Shouldn’t you be packing for our trip?

Sally: I needed a coffee. What’s your excuse?

Adam: Tying up a loose end before we, uh, leave.

P.I.: I have an update on jesse gaines.

[ Sighs ]

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Adam: So, you haven’t found gaines, but you think billy has?

P.I.: Security footage caught gaines entering abbott’s apartment building tonight.

Adam: Is billy there?

P.I.: Yes, and they’re still inside, both of them. Want me to stay close?

Adam: No. Um, I’ll take it from here. Good work.

P.I.: You got it.

Sally: What’s with all the mysterious cloak-and-dagger business?

Adam: I, um — I have to take care of something. I’ll meet you at the airport. Just don’t be late for wheels-up.

Sally: Sounds exciting and exotic. If you’re trying to impress me, I have been on private jets before.

Adam: I’m not trying to impress you or anyone. I just want a comfortable, peaceful trip to italy, okay? You remember that I’m taking you as a friendly favor, not a date, right?

Sally: But can’t it at least be the start of a beautiful friendship?

Adam: No.

Sally: Ow. Okay. Need to lighten up. I was teasing you. I know what this trip is about.

Adam: You just can’t help yourself, can you?

Billy: How many other people know about this scam with camilla’s will?

Gaines: As far as I know, you, me, locke, and victor.

Billy: Why would victor pay you? What benefit does he get by squashing the story? I mean, he can’t possibly condone victoria’s wedding after hearing this news, so…

Gaines: Maybe victor newman doesn’t see what locke did as a crime. I’m sure he’s done similar things on his way to the top. The real question is, why are you out to get ashland?

Billy: Victoria is the mother of my children. And she’s a good person. And I’ve caused her enough pain. I don’t want to see her suffer anymore.

Gaines: I don’t buy that you’re being noble.

Billy: I don’t care. You don’t need to understand anything. The only person that needs to know the truth is victoria. And she can make whatever decision she wants.

[ Sighs ] But right now, she is not taking my calls. So I’m going to tuscany early. And you’re coming with me because she is not gonna believe me unless I give her the proof from the horse’s mouth.

Victor: So, how does it look out there?

Nikki: Gorgeous.

Victor: Yeah?

Nikki: An idyllic spot.

Victoria: I think it’s the perfect backdrop for us to exchange our vows.

Ashland: What does that mean?

Victoria: Well, you know, we have a lot to do if we’re gonna pull off the wedding of the year.

Victor: I’m delighted to hear that.

Ashland: Maybe we should take a walk around the grounds.

Nikki: Before you do that, could you take us to our room? The sooner we get settled, the sooner we can all pitch in and help.

Victoria: Sure. Of course I will.

Nikki: Thank you. Still fresh

Chloe: Hi. What’s going on here?

Adam: Uh, I just got a message from the editor of a fashion magazine. Trust me, you’ve heard of her. Um, she just found out that sally is going to tuscany, and newman media is promising to give a scoop, and she wants confirmation.

Sally: Well, I can confirm that I am going there for the wedding, and when victoria wears my dress that I made for her —

Adam: Wait, wait, wait, the whole reason that I’m going to this wedding is to show that I’m committed to playing a role in my family. This doesn’t help. Makes it look like it’s a self-serving business trip, sally.

Chloe: It wasn’t sally. It was me. I leaked the story. I got excited, I told a friend, and you know how fast gossip travels.

Adam: See, that — that was reckless.

Chloe: I — I’m sorry. But it was scoop about fashion, not about dirt.

Adam: But the wedding dress?

Chloe: Sally’s creation.

Sally: Hello.

Adam: What if victoria doesn’t wear the gown?

Sally: She’s gonna love it.

Adam: Look, I’m — I’m gonna give you a ride over there. That’s it. Not gonna get you an audience with victoria. She got enough on her plate, and I’m not exactly her favorite person.

Sally: I know it seems like I’m flirting with disaster here, but I’m not. Okay, I’m just putting myself in the right place at the right time, with your help. So, thank you, both of you, for having faith in me.

Adam: Okay, I have to go. Alright? We’ll discuss it later. But, please, please, no more leaks or gossip. I don’t want anything to take attention away from victoria’s big day.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

[ Door opens ]

Victoria: So, it looks like your bags beat you here.

Victor: I got to tell you, the staff is absolutely first-class.

Victoria: Do you want to rest, and then we can meet for lunch? Nate and elena will be flying in later.

Nikki: Oh, well, maybe they could join us. That would be nice.

Victor: Sweetheart, would you mind giving me some time alone with victoria?

Nikki: Yes, of course. I will make arrangements for lunch?

Victor: Si, my love. So, I understand that ashland told you everything.

Victoria: Yes, he did.

Victor: [ Sighs ] How do you feel about it?

Victoria: Well, obviously, it was a lot to take in.

[ Sighs ] And not just the money from camilla, but I’m assuming that nick told you how he took the name ashland locke.

Victor: Yeah.

Victoria: [ Sighs ]

Victor: I’ve been filled in. And — and never mind nicholas. He’s alright.

Victoria: He had no right to dig up that information himself.

Victor: Sweetheart, forgive him for that. He did that to protect you. I wish you hadn’t rescinded his invitation. I was looking forward to having nicholas and adam and you all together at the same wonderful event.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Daddy, I cannot let this go so easily. He’s gonna have to earn my forgiveness.

Chloe: You know, I was worried there. I thought that adam was gonna pull the plug on you being his plus-one.

Sally: Thank you.

Chloe: For what?

Sally: Well, for stepping in and taking the blame for the leak. But I have to ask. Why did you cover for me?

Chloe: Well, I would rather him be mad at me than at you. I’m used to it.

Sally: Well, I owe you.

Chloe: Yeah, you do. And don’t worry, I will accept it, but for right now, I just need you to guard this dress with your life on this trip.

Sally: Well, good thing we’re going on a private jet. Could you imagine me trying to shove that thing into an overhead bin of a commercial flight?

Chloe: No, it would have been a disaster.

Sally: I had to use the most delicate, luxurious material to make sure it was worthy of a newman bride.

Chloe: Well, that’s why I’m relieved that you are getting newman-level transportation, ’cause, normally, I would be opposed to someone traveling and spending hours in an enclosed space with adam.

Sally: All the stars are aligning. I’m going to spend the entire trip visualizing victoria strutting down the aisle wearing my design, because I believe in the power of positive thinking.

Chloe: I do love your confidence, but you really should listen to adam, because there is a chance that you’re going to get there and victoria is not going to give you the time of day, and then it will just be a wasted trip.

Sally: I understand.

Chloe: Okay, and I — I know I’ve said this to you before, but please just — please just go easy on — on the flirting. You know, I mean, I just know what adam is like when he has that single-minded look in his eye. You really don’t want to cross him.

Sally: Fine. But I think you have forgotten your can-do spirit, ’cause this is what it looks like when you want something so badly that you will it into existence. Haven’t you ever done that before?

Chloe: I can’t believe I’ve hitched my wagon to someone nuttier than me.

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Chloe: Okay. Have a great trip. I wish you luck. And please just get victoria to say “yes to the dress.” I’m a ganiac, ganiac, check my drawers Some things are good to know.

Victoria: Thank you for what you’ve done, for helping to keep the camilla rhodes story quiet. And I — I really, really appreciate your help in protecting newman/locke from any backlash, daddy.

Victor: That is not why i paid off gaines.

Victoria: Well, why did you do it?

Victor: Because I’ve never seen my daughter as happy as you are now with ashland. I know that’s good for the company, but mostly it is good for you. I’m happy for you. And that’s more important than anything.

Victoria: Don’t worry. I have every intention of proceeding with the weeding.

Nikki: I’m not gonna lie to you. After everything I have learned of recently, I have very serious doubts that victoria should go ahead with this wedding.

[ Sighs ] She thinks that it’s the right thing to do, for practical reasons, but she doesn’t want to admit how much she’s hurting. And I predicted all along that getting involved with you would bring her nothing but heartache, and that has proven to be true. Your health, these secrets from your past — all very unfortunate omens.

Ashland: I’m not superstitious.

Nikki: Victoria may think it’s the right thing to do to go ahead with this wedding, but i am appealing to you, ashland.

Ashland: Are you asking me to call things off?

Nikki: Yes. If you truly care about her, give her that gift. Relieve her of this burden.

[ Knock on door ]

Billy: Who is it?

Adam: It’s adam.

Billy: Coming.

[ Doorknob turning ]

[ Sighs ] To what do I owe this unpleasant surprise?

Adam: I’m looking for gaines.

Billy: Who?

Adam: Jesse gaines. Are you really gonna pretend like you don’t know who he is, billy?

Billy: I’m gonna do anything I have to, to get you the hell out of here so I can go pack for tuscany and get a little bit of rest.

Adam: Relax, billy. You can sleep in tomorrow, because you’re not going to tuscany. You’re not getting anywhere near victoria’s wedding.

Recap written by Christine

Adam went to Billy’s and asked for Jesse Gaines. Billy pretended he’d never heard the name. He wanted Adam to leave so he could pack for Tuscany. Adam entered uninvited and stated that Billy that was not going to Tuscany. Billy asked if

Adam was going to stop him. Adam told Billy that if he was smart, he wouldn’t make this move he’d come to regret. Adam asked Billy why he was so hell-bent on sabotaging Victoria’s happiness. Billy stated that he was trying to ensure Victoria’s happiness. He was at peace with trying to stop Victoria from marrying a deceitful, duplicitous man. Adam contended that, no matter what Ashland did, Adam, Billy and Victor had no room to throw stones.

Adam thought Billy looked petty trying to track down this guy from Ashland’s past. Billy maintained that he had no idea who Adam meant, even pretending that he thought the guy’s name was Jamie Gams. “Just come off of it,” Adam ordered. He knew Billy met with Jesse Gaines, a shady guy from Ashland’s past, whose father worked for Camilla Rhodes. Billy thought that Adam was here because Victor ordered him to come. “Your father told you to jump and you said ‘how high?’” Billy said that Adam didn’t really know any details because Victor didn’t trust him enough to tell him. Billy thought that made Adam pathetic. Adam argued that he was actually on the inside, and Billy was the one on the outside of the situation. Adam thought Billy was trying to divert attention away from the matter at hand. Adam and Victor were in agreement that Victoria had the right to have the wedding go off without a hitch. Billy contended that Adam didn’t give a damn about his sister, and she barely tolerated him. Adam didn’t pretend he and Victoria were close, but things were better than they’d ever been, and he respected her as a businesswoman. Billy said that Victor put Victoria in charge and wasn’t micromanaging her. Adam said Victor was focused on his new venture with Adam. Billy said that Adam got the consolation prize. Adam was thrilled about working with his father, and he was working to repair his relationship with his siblings. He wasn’t out to destroy anyone’s life, unlike Billy. Billy insisted that he was protecting Victoria and the kids. Adam said Victoria could take care of herself and her kids. Adam thought Billy was jealous and insecure and unable to let go. He believed it killed Billy that Victoria moved on to a man who was superior to him in every way. Adam liked Ashland, and he thought he was a good influence on Billy’s kids. “Don’t mention me. Don’t mention Victoria and don’t ever talk about my kids,” Billy ordered. Adam said to relax – this was just a talk. Billy said they both had planes to catch, and unless Adam drugged him, he couldn’t stop him from leaving. Adam said that Billy was going to fail, and he couldn’t wait to have a front row seat to his humiliation. Adam left.

Gaines came downstairs and asked if that was who he thought it was. Billy said it was Adam Newman. Gaines was concerned that Victor’s son was part of this now. Billy told Gaines they were going to the airport. Gaines never agreed to that, and he refused to go. Billy insisted and promised to make it worth Gaines’ while. As much as Gaines would love more money, there were other factors to consider. He said that if he went to Italy, he’d be delivered into the hands of the two men he betrayed. Gaines asked how to know he could trust Billy not to use him and throw him to the wolves. Billy swore he had Gaines’ back. He was sure that Ashland and Victor wouldn’t do anything in front of that many people, so all he and Gaines had to do was get in, talk to Victoria and get out. Gaines was still wary.

Billy thought that Gaines could get something sweeter than money – revenge. Billy assured Gaines that he was justified in resenting Ashland for stealing Gaines’ father from him. Billy stated that Ashland got all the praise and accolades and Gaines Jr. got shoved to the sidelines. Gaines felt like Billy really understood. Billy knew something about being the black sheep, and he said that Gaines had it worse than he did because Ashland used Gaines’ father. Billy said that Ashland still didn’t respect Gaines. Gaines was happy to help expose Ashland, and he thought it would be a magnificent moment. Billy told Gaines to imagine how satisfying it’d be to be part of taking Ashland down. “You’d be able to see the look on his face when he realizes that you were the one with the power all along,” Billy said. Gaines was sold. “When do we leave?,” he asked. Billy said he had to finish packing and make a phone call. He told Gaines to grab himself a drink and a bite to eat. Gaines said this trip would be one for the ages. Billy agreed – Gaines would get his revenge, and Billy would prevent someone he cared about from making one of the biggest mistakes of her life. Billy called Lily to see how she and Mattie were. They were fine. She asked about his kids, and he said Hannah would have them packed and ready to fly to Tuscany with Lily. He said that she might not have to get on that flight though because if things went the way they thought he would, there wouldn’t be a wedding to attend.

In Tuscany, Ashland was glad to have a private moment with Victoria. He wanted to know why she was going forward with the wedding. He wanted nothing more than to be her husband, but now he wasn’t sure she should marry him. He thought, perhaps, he should call off the wedding. She asked where this was coming from. He said Nikki was worried Victoria was getting married for the wrong reasons. If that was true, that would devastate him. He wanted her to be happy and for this to be the best day of her life. She knew her mother meant well, but she was wrong. Victoria said she was doing exactly what she needed to do. Ashland asked if Victoria was marrying him to avoid questions and potential scandals and protect the company. She said that was in both their best interests. He said, a year ago, he would’ve felt that way too and focused on protecting the company at all costs. He held her hands and said her love profoundly changed him, and he knew he betrayed that love with his secrets. He could see how deeply wounded she was – earlier, when she could barely look at him, it destroyed him. He didn’t want her to go through with the marriage if her heart wasn’t in it. “You think you have me all figured out, but even when I was furious with you, I never said that my heart wasn’t in it,” Victoria replied.

Ashland was sorry he hid the truth and that his past was threatening what they built together. He asked what she thought when she looked at him. Last night, Victoria kept thinking about what he told her, and she wondered what she’d do in his position. He had no doubt she would’ve done the morally right thing in each instance because she was a good person and there was a line she’d never cross. She asked what that made him. He said he was a ruthless sometimes self-serving man who wanted to be better because of her. He wanted to live because of her, and he wanted a chance to make amends because of her. She believed him, and she wanted to give him that chance. Despite everything she loved him, and she always would. She still wanted to be his wife. They kissed.

Upstairs in their Tuscan bedroom, Nikki informed Victor that she encouraged Ashland to call off the wedding. Victor didn’t agree with this. He said they were sending mixed messages because he’d just told Victoria how happy he was that she was marrying Ashland. Nikki didn’t understand how Victor was okay with the wedding after everything they’d just learned about Ashland. It occurred to her that he’d known about Ashland’s secret prior to today and that he didn’t tell her or Victoria. He confirmed that this was true. He said he kept it quiet because he didn’t want the press or Billy finding out. She asked what exactly Billy knew. Victor had no idea, but he knew Billy continued to investigate. Nikki had a lot of thoughts about Billy and about how Victor handled this situation, but her main concern was Victoria. He felt the same way. She asked how he could believe it was a good idea for Victoria to get married simply because she thought it was good for business. “Obviously her heart is broken,” Nikki said.

Victor said that if he thought the wedding would be to Victoria’s detriment, he would’ve asked her to walk away. Nikki didn’t think Victor saw Victoria’s true feelings underneath her armor. Nikki said Victoria always wanted to look tough and in control in front of Victor. All Victor knew was that Victoria and Ashland loved each other, and he thought that was what was important. He knew Ashland desperately wanted to spend whatever time he had left with Victoria. Nikki wanted Victoria to be happy, and if the marriage made her happy, Nikki would support it.

Nate and Elena entered the Palazzo and interrupted Ashland and Victoria’s deep kiss. Elena talked about how wonderful it was to fly on a private jet. Nate thanked Ashland. Ashland felt that it was the least he could do for his best man and his lovely lady. Nate offered to help Ashland and Victoria in any way he could. Victoria appreciated that, but she only asked that they enjoy themselves. Ashland took Elena and Nate to their room. Later, Nate and Ashland were alone on the patio, and Nate noticed Ashland stumble. Ashland admitted he wasn’t feeling well, but he wasn’t letting anything in the way of the wedding. Elena returned from her walk and talked about the stunning view.

Ashland thanked Nate for the sage advice to follow his heart the other day. It seemed to him that things had worked our pretty well. Elena and Nate exchanged a look, and she encouraged him to tell Ashland. Nate revealed that he and Elena ran into Billy in Genoa City. Billy had alluded to some information he learned about Ashland, perhaps some of the stuff Ashland had been worried about when he spoke with Nate. Elena added that Billy didn’t want the wedding to happen. Ashland appreciated the warning, but he, Victoria and her parents were aware of Billy’s intentions, and there was nothing he could do to stop the wedding. Ashland urged the pair to settle in and he said he’d catch up with them later. He left. Elena was glad Ashland wasn’t worried, because it’d be a shame if Billy caused trouble in paradise. Nate was glad to see how calm Elena was. Elena felt a bit anxious because she didn’t know how they’d get a chance to see everything there was to see of Italy. He said they couldn’t, but they could come back to Italy later. She asked what his can’t miss sights were. He wanted to show her the Theater of Silence and the waterfall nearby. She said she’d love to see that with him. The thought of being here with him in such an idyllic place made her heart race. He felt it too.

Nikki and Victor were outside by another part of the Palazzo. They admired the ambiance and he said it’d help Victoria and Ashland because you couldn’t help but fall more in love here. Victor kissed Nikki on the cheek, then he got a call that he had to take, so he left. Nikki continued her walk and found Elena and Nate. They talked about the Palazzo, and Nikki mentioned that it was going to Victoria and Ashland as a wedding gift.

Adam called Victor and brought him up to speed on Billy. Adam thought Gaines and Billy were colluding, and he couldn’t dissuade Billy from going to the wedding. Victor knew Adam did what he could. Adam felt that he’d been at a slight disadvantage since Victor didn’t give him any specifics on Gaines or the threat to Victoria and Ashland. Victor said it wasn’t that he didn’t trust Adam, he just didn’t want to disseminate this information, for Victoria’s sake. He didn’t even tell Nikki. Adam wanted all the details, because he thought the more he knew, the better he’d be able to help. Victor told Adam everything. Adam said that Ashland’s secret was a lot to take in. he asked how Victoria was handling it. Victor thought Victoria’s relationship with Ashland transcended everything that happened years ago. Adam was glad. Victor thought those two belonged together. Adam said that they would be as long as Billy didn’t show up shooting his mouth off. That would be mortifying for Victoria and Ashland, and it’d damage Ashland’s legacy and Newman/Locke. Victor was unhappy because he paid Gaines a lot of money to go away, and he broke his word. Adam asked how far Victor wanted him to go to stop Billy and Gaines.

Ashland, Victoria, Nikki, Nate and Elena had drinks on the patio. Victoria said that if Elena and Nate ever wanted to get married, she and Ashland could loan them the Palazzo. Nate and Elena were caught off guard by the topic of marriage. Nate said that Victoria and Ashland made tying the knot look appealing though. Victoria said communication was key. Victor joined them, and he was pleased to see how loving Victoria and Ashland were with each other. He whispered to Victoria that everything was going well and would continue to go well.

In their suite, Tessa packed for Italy and told Mariah that she wished she was coming too. Tessa hated the idea of Mariah being here alone. Mariah accused Tessa of being scared that she’d fall apart or freak out over Dominic. Tess clarified that Mariah was putting words in her mouth. She wasn’t scared to leave Mariah alone, but she was concerned. Mariah was adamant that she was fine. She just wanted to be nearby Dominic in case he still had a cold or any other crisis came up. Tessa carefully asked what Mariah was going to do if that happened. Mariah wanted to protect him like she did before he was born. Her mind knew that wasn’t her job, but her heart hadn’t caught up. Tessa got that, and she was sorry. Mariah was doing her best to accept that her role changed, and that was why she was keeping her distance. Tessa didn’t think Mariah was really keeping her distance if she felt like she needed to stay nearby. Mariah got that this didn’t make sense to Tessa, but she needed this. Tessa knew that experience changed Mariah, and she was okay with that, because she loved every version of Mariah. She just wanted Mariah to be happy again. Mariah replied that having a baby would make her happy, but Tessa took that off the table, so now what? Tessa thought they should take their time and plan for their future as parents. Tessa said that if Mariah went to Tuscany, maybe they could spend a few extra days in Italy and go sightseeing or go see that Italian metal band they liked that won Eurovision. Then after they were relaxed and rejuvenated, they could start talking about a baby. Mariah thought this sounded like a bribe. Tessa asked if it was working.

Mariah was tempted by the offer, but she wasn’t ready to pull away from Dominic. She said moving out of the mansion was a huge step and the right one, but she had a lot of work to do before she could comfortably disconnect in a healthy way. She knew Abby would take care of Dominic, but what if Mariah was gone, and he needed breast milk? Tessa said there were other options. Mariah said Abby talked about switching to formula, but Mariah felt like she needed to be here to provide for him. Tessa felt like Mariah was making a lot of excuses.

Mariah insisted that she had legitimate reasons for staying in Genoa City. Tessa didn’t intend to sound harsh. She didn’t mean to put any pressure on Mariah or make her feel like she wasn’t with her 100%, because she was. Mariah said it didn’t always feel that way. Tessa felt that this was hard for both of them, and that her words came out wrong. She promised she was here for Mariah and she’d help in any way she could. “Then stay with me. Please don’t go to the wedding,” Mariah replied. Mariah said Victoria and Ashland already had Leslie Brooks, so they didn’t need two musicians. She suggested Tessa pretend to be sick. Tessa couldn’t do that. It would be unprofessional. Mariah told Tessa to go and have a great time. Tessa wanted to keep talking, but Mariah said they could talk when Tessa got back. Mariah went to another room.

Elena: [ Chuckles ] I held off on ordering the pasta since we are about to go to Italy and I expect to have the best pasta I have ever tasted in my life.

Nate: Hmm. What is pasta made out of, flour and water? You think they have magical ingredients out there.

Elena: I think everything about that place is gonna be magical.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] Far be it from me to argue with that logic.

Elena: Oh, let me live in my fantasy. I’ve never been to Italy, and i am so excited.


Sally: We are going to need a big car to pick us up from the airport in Tuscany because i have a lot of luggage.

Adam: Really? Why? It’s not like we’re going for that long.

Sally: Well, I’m taking Victoria’s wedding dress and all the paraphernalia that goes along with it, like my sewing machine and supplies, a portable steamer, shoes, accessories.

Adam: Okay, okay, I’ll reserve a limo. Or maybe two.

Sally: That will work.

Adam: I know that you put a lot of work into transporting the dress, but do you have any idea how you’re actually gonna get it in front of her?

Sally: I am still working on that, but, hey, I got the first 5,000 miles planned out, so that last little stretch should be a piece of cake, right?

Adam: The eternal optimist.

Sally: Well, I’m sure I’ll come up with a strategy once i have a chance to scope out the villa.

Adam: Oh, dining alone, i see. What happened, Lily finally give you the boot?

Billy: Not that it’s any of your business, but Lily is visiting her daughter, so apparently I’m not as sad and lonely as you.

Adam: Well, I can’t blame her for having to get away. She probably needed a break from being around such an insufferable bore.

Billy: You’ll be happy to know that she’ll be meeting me in Tuscany for the big wedding. It’s unfortunate you won’t have a date for the big shindig. Of course, you’d have to be invited by Victoria in the first place.

Adam: Well, I hate to burst your bubble, but I actually will be at the wedding. Despite all odds, Victoria decided to roll the dice and add me to the guest list. So, I look forward to toasting to her good fortune.


Adam: Victoria already left, huh? Then why are you hinting that you have some insider info about pre-wedding jitters? She didn’t go all the way there not to get married, Billy. What’s this, is this just more wishful thinking?

Billy: You can call it a strong hunch that any minute she’s gonna wake up and realize the insanity of committing to an enigma of a man.

Adam: [ Exhales ] For once, I have more faith in your ex-wife than you do. I think my sister’s deeply in love for the first time in a long time. And she knows exactly what she’s doing.
