Xander, I just wanted to say.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Shouldn’t see each other anymore.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I trust you, Sandra.

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you,

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

And so, Jack and I, we talked about,

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

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

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

I can’t let that hold me back

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

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

I’ll never not wish for them.

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

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

Something really great.

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

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

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

Vivian Alama, why are you calling?

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

I feel like I love you


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

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

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

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

But that’s fine.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

hunter, I’m really.

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

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

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

I love you too,

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

You okay?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Show you that

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

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

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

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

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

It’s pathetic. Allie.

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

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


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

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

Don’t give up the fight. The hope.

The love of your life may be,

your life may

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

time to say


Is right here.

The love of your life might be dust.

To be.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yeah, they are.

I promise you. I’m exactly where I.

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

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

Do you still tap?

It’s not you. I don’t. It’s just that

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

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

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

How lucky am I?

Abby: Hi.

[ Sighs ] Hi.

Lily: Hi.

Abby: Uh, picking up food to go?

Lily: Uh, yeah, I am.

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

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

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

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

Abby: How are you feeling about everything?

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

Abby: [ Sighs ]

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

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

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

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

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Devon: Look who it is.

Victoria: Hello, there, devon.

Devon: Hi, victoria.

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

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

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

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

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

Devon: Are you?

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

Devon: Bet you do.

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

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

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

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

Daniel: Should have a better idea in a week.

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

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

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

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

Tucker: You mean, someone unlike me.

[ Laughs ]

[ Glasses clink ]

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

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

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

Jack: And we both know I would.

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

Jack: Okay, you decide what’s best.

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

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

Sally: Yeah, it’s fine.

Nick: Doesn’t seem like that.

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

Additional sponsorship

provided by…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nick: I’ll leave with you.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

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

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

Adam: [ Sighing ]

Devon: Why would you ask me about tucker?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tucker: Really?

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

Tucker: Uh-oh.

Daniel: [ Chuckles ]

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

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

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

Daniel: Bossy?

Tucker: [ Chuckles ]

Daniel: Stubborn?

Tucker: [ Chuckles ]

Daniel: Always thinks she’s right?

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

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

Tucker: Sure.

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

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

Daniel: I’m sorry, what did you say?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Abby: Have you said this to your brother?

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

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

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

Victoria: Devon, uh…

Devon: Yeah?

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

Devon: [ Chuckles ]

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

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

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

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

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

Tucker: Hmm. You miss her a lot?

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

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

Daniel: Why would you say that?

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

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Diane: [ Sighs ]

[ Door opens ]

Kyle: [ Sighs ]

[ Door closes ]

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

Kyle: What you want to talk about?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Diane: And I want you to tell me why.

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

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

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

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

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

Diane: I know, and I accept that responsibility.

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

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

Sally: [ Sighs ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Daniel: [ Chuckles ]

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

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

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

Daniel: Thank you.

Tucker: Alright. See you.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

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

Devon: [ Sighing ] Oh, yeah. Oh.

Abby: Hey, you.

Devon: Hey.

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

Devon: Oh, nice.

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

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

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

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

Abby: Weird. Um… [ Chuckles ]

Devon: [ Chuckles ]

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

Devon: How so?

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

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

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

“The young and the restless”

will continue. What’s the #1 retinol brand

Devon: What exactly did lily say to you?

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

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

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

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

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

[ Paper tearing ]

Esther: Knock, knock.

[ Chuckles ]

Lily: Hey.

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

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

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

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

Esther: I-is everything okay with him?

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

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

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

Esther: Okay.

Lily: Anyway, thank you for the tea.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Footsteps departing ]

[ Door closes ]

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Nick: Listen…

Sally: [ Sighs ]

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

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

[ Sighs ]

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

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

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

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

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

Sally: Okay.

[ Sniffles ]

Nick: Okay.

Sally: Thank you.

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

Diane: Uh, you’re right. I — I can’T.

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

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

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

Diane: That wasn’t my intent.

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

Diane: [ Sighs ] We pulled people off the street

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

Devon: It’s okay. You alright?

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

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

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

Devon: Appreciate you.

Esther: I so love you.

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

Esther: Okay, okay.

[ Door closes ]

[ Doorbell rings ]

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

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

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

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

Tucker: Your unapologetic disdain for me is very refreshing.

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

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

Abby: [ Sighs ]

[ Footsteps approaching ]

[ Knock on door ]

Adam: Can I talk to you for a minute?

Jack: Absolutely. Come on in.

Adam: Hmm.

Jack: How’s it going?

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

Jack: Oh?

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

Jack: Why is that?

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

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

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

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

Adam: ‘Cause it’s so twisted.

Jack: You said that, not me.

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

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

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

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

Kyle: Relieved to hear that.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Abby: Well, you should, immediately.

Tucker: Excuse me?

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

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

Abby: You should go… now.

[ Sighs ]

Tucker: I’ll be back another time…

Abby: [ Sighs ]

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

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

[ Door slams ]

[ Sighs ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lily: [ Sighs ]

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

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

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

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

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

Jack: As do I.

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

Jack: [ Sighs ]

Transcript provided by Suzanne


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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Echoing ] Suture and tag with a kelly.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Laughter ]

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

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

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Relaxing music ]

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

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

Taylor: We are nothing alike, sheila.

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

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

Carter: Background checks?

Charlie: Done by yours truly.

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

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

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

Charlie: Right.

Katie: She most definitely is.

Deacon: Well?

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

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

Brooke: Yeah.

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

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

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

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

Brooke: Yeah?

Deacon: Yeah.

Brooke: Still working on that signature pizza?

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

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

Deacon: Yeah?

Brooke: Yes.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Charlie: Yeah.

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

Charlie: Okay. Later. Somebody stop me.

[ Charlie chuckling ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Carter: How do you know?

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

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

Brooke: Well, we stood up for ourselves.

Deacon: Proud of you.

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

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

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

Deacon: Thank you.

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

Deacon: She is very clairvoyant.

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

Deacon: Oh yeah? What’s that?

Brooke: I found a new dear friend in taylor.

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

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

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

Taylor: Those are completely different circumstances.

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

[ Wind gushing ]

Taylor: Please, help me.

[ Taylor screaming ]

[ Taylor sobbing ]

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

Brooke: Yeah.

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

[ Brooke laughing ]

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

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

Brooke: Really?

Deacon: Yeah.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Sheila chuckling ]

[ Taylor exhaling nervously ]

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

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

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

Katie: I don’t know. I wish I knew.

Carter: Are you sure?

Katie: About what?

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

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

Carter: You definitely do.

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

[ Knock on the door ]

Brooke: Hello! I come bearing gifts.

Taylor: Yay!

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

Taylor: Oh.

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

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

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

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

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

Carter: I love them. You can keep going.

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

Carter: Do you see me leaving?

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

[ Both laughing ]

Katie: Okay. Thank you for everything.

Carter: Always.

Katie: Have a good meeting.

Carter: I will.

[ Door slamming ]

Katie: How did you get in here?

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

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

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

Brooke: Ah, okay. Uh…

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

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

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

Brooke: You weren’t yourself.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Chuckles ]

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

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

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

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

[ Door opens ] And the best support system.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Chuckles ] I think I said,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Exhales sharply ]

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

[ Sobs ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Chuckles ] Me, too.

[ Sobs ]

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

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

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

[ Sniffles ]

[ Clears throat ]

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

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

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

[ Sighs ] God help you. If only.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Sighs ]

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

[ Cellphone beeps ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Monitor beeping ]

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

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

[ Monitor alarm blaring ] Charge to 200.

[ Paddles whine ] Clear!

[ Thump ]

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

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

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

Steffy: Mom, don’T.

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

Katie: Oh, my god.

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

[ Katie scoffs ]

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

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

[ Sheila laughing ]

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

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

Hope: Oh, hello.

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

Brooke: Look at you, running your restaurant.

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

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

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

Hope: We both are.

[ Hope laughing ]

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

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

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

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

Brooke: Sure.

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

Brooke: Oh, you drive a hard bargain.

Hope: I know, right?

Brooke: Mm.

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

Brooke: Okay.

Hope: Mm. Okay.

Brooke: Okay, here goes.

Deacon: Okay.

Brooke: Mm.

Hope: Mm.

Brooke: That’s good.

Deacon: It’s missing something though, right?

Hope & brooke: Mm…

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

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

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

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

Deacon: Okay.

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

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

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

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

Deacon: Okay. This is all valuable input.

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

Brooke: Mm-hmm. Make that two.

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

Hope: That is great.

Brooke: Oh, thank goodness.

Deacon: Yes. Get in closer.

Bill: What are you saying?

That you would take me back?

If sheila goes to prison,

that you would forgive me?

That our family could be

one again?

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

Bill: I’m right here.

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

Katie: I can’t believe this.

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

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

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

Deacon: Yeah, she did.

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

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

[ Brooke sighing] Dad?

Deacon: Hmm?

Hope: You okay?

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

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

Sheila: This mood… has to do with katie?

Bill: Her visit got me thinking.

Sheila: About?

Bill: The past. What could’ve been.

Sheila: If only you had been different.

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

Steffy: Let’s not discuss this right now.

Katie: Are you kidding me?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Deacon: Hmm.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Wind howling ]

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

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

[ Taylor sobbing ] I did it.

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

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

Brooke: Mm.

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

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

Hope: Well, for what?

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

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

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

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

Bill: Well, that didn’t happen.

Sheila: You know why?

Bill: Why?

Sheila: Because of this.

Bill: Mm-hmm.

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

[ Sheila chuckles softly ]

Taylor: I am so sorry, katie.

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

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

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

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

Taylor: I know.

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

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

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

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

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Jack: Hi.

Kyle: Do you have time to talk?

Jack: It’s about Marchetti?

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

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

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

Jack: Yes, they are.

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

Diane: Summer. Do you have a minute?

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

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

Summer: [ Sighs ] Okay. What’s up?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Chloe: You have no idea?

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

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

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

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

Victor: I talked to Jill, yeah.

Nick: About sally?

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

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

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

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]

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

Phyllis: You’re an ass.

Tucker: Where are you going?

Phyllis: I’m trying to catch a flight.

Tucker: Oh, yeah?

Phyllis: Mm.

Tucker: Business or personal trip?

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

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

Daniel: Sounded important.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nick: Why are you trying to destroy sally?

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

Nick: She did no such thing.

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

Nick: No, it’s the other way around.

Victor: No!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Chloe: But I thought he cleared all that up.

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

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

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

Chloe: [ Sighs ] The Adam possibility.

Adam: What is the Adam possibility?

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

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

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

Tucker: Is Daniel going with you?

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

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

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

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

Phyllis: Leave my son alone.

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

Phyllis: Um, you seem desperate, Tucker.

Tucker: Is that so?

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

Tucker: Mm.

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

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

Phyllis: Damn it.

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

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

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

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

Daniel: Well, you’re not totally alone.

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

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

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

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

Kyle: All of it.

Jack: Can you be more specific?

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

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

Kyle: Yes.

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

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

Kyle: There were already shady things happening.

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

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

Jack: I really do.

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

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

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

Jack: Our eyes are wide open.

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

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

Summer: That I believe.

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

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

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

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

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

Summer: What do you mean?

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

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

Diane: I’m not naive.

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

Diane: Not at all.

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

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

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

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

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

Victor: What the hell do you think?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Victor: What do you mean by that?

Nick: Things are going well here, right?

Victor: Right.

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

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

[ Door opens ]

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

Chloe: Eavesdrop much?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Diane: So, that’s the warning.

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

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

[ Cellphone pings ]

Chloe: Ooh! Is that Nick?

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

Chloe: Aww. He’s so sweet.

Adam: Mm.

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

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

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

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

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

Adam: You two enjoy your lunch, okay?

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

[ Door opens ]

Phyllis: Hey!

Summer: Oh, hi.

Phyllis: Ohh, it’s freezing.

Summer: What are you doing here?

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

Summer: Okay. Where — where are you going?

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

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

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

Summer: [ Sighs ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lily: Yeah.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Nick: Hey. So glad you’re back.

Sally: So glad to be home.

[ Both smooch ]

Sally: I’ve never been healthier.

Victoria: What happened with sally?

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

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

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

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

Victor: Eh, I’m not so sure.

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

Victor: [ Breathes deeply ]

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

Nick: See you, Chloe.

Chloe: Bye.

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

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

Sally: I hope so.

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

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

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

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

Sally: Yeah. Chloe said that.

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

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

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

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

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

Sally: Yeah. I do.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Summer: [ Sighs ]

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

Summer: How am I supposed to do that?

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

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

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

Summer: [ Sighs ]

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

Summer: That worries me.

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

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

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

Summer: Good luck.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ]

[ Door opens ]

[ Door closes ]

Music (“I swear”) plays

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

Victor: Yeah. Do you have news?

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

Victor: And?

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

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

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

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

Daniel: [ Sighs ]

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

Jack: What a nice surprise.

Diane: Good. Hi.

Jack: Hi. Let me take your coat.

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

Jack: Oh? What’s on her mind?

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

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

Diane: Well, what are they?

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

Diane: What?

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

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

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

Diane: [ Laughs ]

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

Diane: [ Sighs ]

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

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

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

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

Jack: Yeah?

Diane: Mmm.

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

Sally: I am.

[ Both laugh ]

[ Cellphone buzzing ]

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

Nick: Sure.

Sally: Thanks.

[ Footsteps departing ]

Adam: [ Clears throat ] Nicholas.

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

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

Nick: Both, actually.

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

Nick: Oh, he definitely does.

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

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

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

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

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

Nick: I’m just trying to help, Adam.

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

Nick: No, I don’t.

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

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

Transcript provided by Suzanne


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

She walked out the door

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

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

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

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

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

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

so much.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

nevermind, forget it.

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

No, it wasn’t.

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

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

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

I just couldn’t do it. And I realized that as, as much as I tried to tell myself to just let him go, as much as I told myself that we are just,

you’re right.

I just. I can’t give up on him,

and that’s because I’m still in love with him. Even if he doesn’t love me back.

I gave GU so many chances because God knows my family gave them to me. But Abigail went through such hell because of her. I blame myself for that.

Blame myself too. I believed Gwen’s lives. I doubted Abby’s commitment to our marriage, and then I betrayed her. No, you worked through all that. Chad, you and Aga worked through all that, and when you did, after you did, I’m telling you, you made her so happy.

I wish I could keep doing that. Make her happy. She made me happier than I could have ever dreamed. I think I, um, I’ve persuaded myself that Abby would want me to live my life without her. She wouldn’t want me to wallow when God knows I, I, uh, I did. I I do. But

for the kids’ sake, you know, I just have to be strong at least in front of them. You have been strong, Chad. You’ve been strong and you’ve helped keep your mother’s memory alive and you’re letting them experience joy, just daily joy. I gotta tell you, Charlotte was so excited talking about going skating with you and, and Stephanie.

It was, that was a good thing.

Chad, you deserve to have more good days. I don’t want to, I don’t wanna be presumptuous or overstepping or anything, but

you have a lot more to give. You do. You’re a good man. You’re a good person. You’re kind. And I, and I hope, I hope you find love again. And I think, I think Abi going through the same way.

We are gathered here today in the memory of my precious mother, Dr. Kayla Brady Johnson,

so that together we may acknowledge and share both our joy in the gift that her life was to us and the pain that are passing springs.

If I’d had the chance to say goodbye to her,

I would’ve told her that.

I didn’t expect you to get back home so soon. Yeah.

Joe and Trip are still at the hospital. They’re talking to somebody about, um, donating your mom’s,

your mom’s body is science. You know, she always wanted to be an organ donor, but now thanks to Kristen, we can’t even grant her her last wish.

I was, um, I was just writing her eulogy and most of what I type, I just end up deleting.

Well, I think, uh, the right words will come to you at the right time. Yeah. I just keep thinking about what I. Would’ve said if I’d been there, if I’d been at the hospital in time. Listen to me. You have to let go of that. Stephanie, your mother knew how much you loved her. I know, but I just, I wanted to say goodbye to her.

I sh I should have been there with her. No. Listen, baby. Please stop blaming yourself for that. It was not your fault. No. It was someone else’s. You want to give me a piece of your mind about Stephanie Johnson? I should have known that one. Look, I, I, I just want to let you know that I, she told me that you turned off her phone while you two were doing the, the whatever it is that you were doing, and so she lost her chance to give her final goodbye.

Say, Hadai Mama, I know. And Ms. Price, there is nothing you could say to me right now that Stephanie hasn’t already said. Oh. Oh, good. Good. You deserve every insult that she threw at you, cuz if she had no way to get you to the curb, I’ve got plenty of my own kicking to do that. And trust me, as much as you could possibly beat me up right now, I’m beating myself up more.

Okay. I know my brain was a bit scrambled at the time, but Ralph, I recall at your lab there was a ton of equipment. When you programmed me, there’s nothing down here, but cobwebs, wine and psychosis. That won’t be a problem. I stashed some of my equipment in the lab of tunnels, so set up may be a bit makeshift, but I will make it, uh, make it work.

I don’t want you to make it work. And what the hell? Why are you going along with this anyway? Because it’s what Stefano would want. You’re loving father and the boss of Dr. Rolf worshiped and adored. So the good doctor knows that the man that he was completely devoted to would never want his son just walking around.

Brainwash, get what you need. No foot raw.

I hate you. Not for long. And you know, once your real feelings from me, come back. You’re gonna thank me. I promise. I promise I won’t.

Uh, I can’t think about finding love again, Jack. Oh, and Abby still has my heart.

The showers will, you know,

I went to her grave site on Christmas Eve and I thought that she appeared to me. Just talk to me about how I should move on with my life. So you haven’t been thinking about the idea? No, I wouldn’t say that. You just did. When you said that Abi talk to you, I believe that was your subconscious trying to give you permission to move on.

Cuz deep in your heart, you know that that’s what Abigail wanted to. So you and Stephanie have been growing closer? No. No, Stephanie, me. No, there’s nothing going on between me and Stephanie. It’s not in the way that, you mean.

I mean, there might have been,

but I, I put a stop to it cuz I, I realized I wasn’t ready and I didn’t know if I ever would be Stephanie. Understood. You know, she, she loved Abby too. So, so Stephanie’s willing to wait No. Until you’re ready. She’s willing. No, I told her that wouldn’t be fair. I’m not gonna hold her back. No. So she moved on with, uh, with, um, Alex Carus.

Alex, it’s funny. Doesn’t seem like her type. Wow. You might not be after all they broke up. Well, maybe it is indeed the time for you to make your move.

I, I can’t believe I ever thought I loved that. Sure. I mean, Sarah Verman, anyone as self-consumed and narcissistic as Alex Kiki. Hey, I’m just so angry at him and I’m just as angry at myself forever trusting him. Baby, listen, I’m so sorry that happened to you, but I’m gonna say it again. Your mom knew how much you loved her, okay?

And at the end, she was at peace. She would want you to be at peace too

falling. It could be, if I had any idea why Chad was trying to reach share, my God, this price, I would’ve never turned her phone off. I just thought this guy was looking for another reason to interrupt us. Not that that’s any excuse, because it’s not. It’s not. And that’s not what I’m trying to do. What I did was wrong.

I did it for the wrong reason. And I admit that, and I can’t take that back now, obviously. And honestly, I don’t think there’s even a way I can fix this. I don’t know if Stephanie would even let me. And I don’t expect you to understand what it’s like to make a mistake. This’s terrible one that just causes so much damn hurt.

Oh, I know exactly what it’s like. Look, you know, I wish you would turn on Xander. I mean, how could I not? Since it would get both of us out of this pickle. But I get that you still love him, which makes it impossible for you to Well, you’d pretty much be ruining his life. Yeah, I would be. And like you said, I just can’t, it’s impossible.

Even if I know that it won’t work out for the two of us, why not? I know he still loves you too. He just loves Sarah more, but she wants nothing to do with him. And if we’re being totally honest here, based on what he told me while he was threatening my life, um, I think he might be giving up on Sarah.

Every time I give you another chance, you make me a regret it, and then you ask me for another one. I Right. Next time I promise. No, you won’t because I’m done.

Maybe nothing happened between you and Gwen, but you two have a connection that you and I don’t. What are you talking about? You woman? I love loved Gwen too.

And even after she helped

having kidnapped, and even though she fried my brain, you went out and did capers with her. I mean, I know. I shouldn’t be surprised because if you need help kidnapping someone who, who else would you turn to? But then, and you lied. Oh my God, you lied and you lied. I’m just so sorry, sir.

Sorry. Won. Cut it. Not this time.

Look, I know that you didn’t mean for anybody to get hurt, but

you kidnap people. Xander,

Susan is dead. Bonnie is traumatized for life.

So please don’t make me say this again. It’s the last time I’m gonna say it.

You are not the man that I fell in love with. And I don’t wanna be married to you anymore.

I remember our life together, Gabby. It wasn’t all flowers and hearts. It was far from it. It was at the end. It’s just before I lost you. That’s, that’s what makes this so devastating. Things are wonderful between us before and, and I know that you’ve had these feelings come back to you. I know that you have those feelings can’t stay buried forever.

Okay? If you really believe that, then why not just let the feelings resurface on their own? Huh? Why make me be a Guinea pig in another one of roll stupid experiments?

Oh, good God. Does this guy even know what he’s doing? There will be a bit of improvisation involved. And I have to warn you, there are always risks for anybody expanding the course of science. I’m sorry. Risks. Risks. Did you hear that? Huh? You let this lunatic poke around in my brain knowing that there are risks involved.

You just admitted it. Calm down. R Ralph. Risks. What kind of risk can we talk about here? Oh, so usual. Amnesia, aphasia, ag, agnosia, death. What? What? I sense some doubt. Hmm. Um, so it’s up to you. Mr. Hernandez. Do you still want me to go through with the procedure?

What exactly did Zander say about Sarah? He was a drunken mess. He probably won’t remember much himself, but in vodka veritas, technically it was scotch, but you get the idea. Anyway, once he was done almost throttling me to death, he told me he pretty much lost Sarah. Well, that doesn’t mean that he’s ready to give up on Ha Guinevere.

He, he’s sitting in his room drunk, vulnerable, half naked. If it were me, I would skedaddle on over there and let him know about the sacrifice you have made to save his fine, fine ass. And if you play cards right, you may have a piece of that ass before the night is over.

I have to hire a lawyer of my own. Look these over it’s boiler plate, Xander. It’s basically a form. There’s no assets to divide up. You don’t have anything of value. And unless you’re planning to ask for alimony from my meager salary, of course not. And quit stalling and just, and just sign the papers, please.

Oh God. I tried so hard not to let you down. Don’t do that. Don’t you dare try to put this on me. I wasn’t, none of this had to happen. None of it. I am a doctor for God’s sake. My mom was offering to give us money to tie us over until I was off probation and making my full salary. But you, you wouldn’t take her support because of your ego.

I never once made you feel inadequate. I never once asked for you to support me. You could work at Buddy’s Burger Barn for all I care. All I ever wanted was to be with the man that I love. And who is that? The man I thought you were. Well, don’t give me that. She knew exactly who I was when you married me.

I mean, sure. Yeah. Every now and then I’d try and turn over a new leaf, but it never worked, did it? I always failed. As you keep reminding me and you, you admitted part of what drew you to me in the first place was that was a bad boy, that you were drawn to the side of me. That breaks the rules. That is the man you fell in love with.

You know? It’s true. Can you find Yes.

When I was around your age, I gave up my baby girl, Milani. I sent her to my sister to raise her own. I did it to protect her. I thought it was the only choice I had at the time, and when it was done, oh, I realized that I had changed the lives of everyone I loved. I couldn’t undo it. My daughter and I, we had lost so much time together.

I’m sorry.

Lonnie was a grown woman by the time the truth came out and when it did it, it was ever a bit as ugly and traumatic as you’d imagine. But in the end, much to my amazement and with profound gratitude, I, my precious daughter, she was able to forgive me. Wow, that’s really good to hear. It makes me happy.

actually gives me a little bit of hope. Maybe one day Stephanie will amaze me too.

I know you’re probably not hungry, but Mom would be so mad if she knew you weren’t taking care of yourself. You see, I’m just like her. Isn’t that why you call me a little sweetness? Yeah. As much as I know you hate it, . Yeah. Well my feelings about that have changed.

I wanna be like her now. Just like her. I wanna help people like she did. I wanna, I wanna lift people’s spirits like she did. You do baby girl. Just by being, you sure do lift my spirits and I am so proud of you.

I can’t make a move right now. That wouldn’t be fair to Stephanie or anyone else. I, I’m, nah, I can’t get involved in a relationship. You miss out, Miguel. Of course you do. You always will.


There’s never gonna be a right time.

There’s never gonna be the, the time when you say, I am ready to take that next step. And maybe I’m, I’m overstepping here, but

you have to take it. And it doesn’t mean the memories of Abigail are gonna be any less, any less important. It doesn’t mean that you’re gonna love her any less. It just means that you’re gonna find room in your heart. It’s gonna grow. So there’s space for you to live the full life that you deserve,

that Abigail would want you to have.

God Rolfe, you didn’t tell me that deprogramming could kill him. You didn’t ask. That’s a risk of him suffering. A severe side effect is approximately 0.12%. Negligible ne, my life is not negligible, Rolf, and I am not willing to risk. Okay, well you just went out in the tunnels and you found a bunch of tubes and wires and put ’em together on your little train and wheeled it back in here to poke around in my brain.

Not I elbow, not I ear. Not my little pinky in my brain. And face it. You don’t know what the hell you’re doing. , are you questioning my genius? I’m questioning your sanity, which is why I’m not letting you lay a finger on me, Gabby. Come on. I like the odds. Just do it wrong. You psychotic. Selfish bitch. How somebody in?

We’re gonna need to. Alright, we are ready to begin.

Alex, I see you’re suffering. Mm-hmm. I sure know what that feels like too. But I don’t have a crystal ball, honey. It’s not for me to say if Stephanie might ever forgive you. Right. I guess that would be a rhetorical question. And really the whole thing is just moot right now because I can’t even get her to talk to me.

I call her, I leave her messages. She doesn’t respond. Messages, huh? I guess you mean her. Texting and tweeting and tics and talks, and however the hell less that You young people now talk to each other. Yeah. You know, here’s what I think, and not that you ask now, I think you, you, the younger generation, y’all need to stop hiding behind a screen if you think that’s the way to get through through each other, because it’s not, you need to, you need to be with the person in the flesh so they can you see your face, look in your eyes.

Maybe even take them into your arms if you have something important to say. Especially if it’s an apology. Yeah.

Tell your father, you know, I said bye. Have him gimme a call. I will. Hey, thank you Ms. Press.

I’ll put it back in the fridge. Maybe we’ll have a little appetite later on. Yeah, I’ll, uh, I’ll take the container back to Roman. Okay. Well, before you do at least have a few bites of the pie on Maid. What dessert before dinner. Mm-hmm. , your mother would not approve. Woo. She says you When mom was in med school and it was just the two of us, we used to eat pie for dinner every Friday night.

You’re kidding me. I’m totally serious. And she was the first one to put a piece on her plate and ladle on the whipped cream. God, I wish I could have seen that.

You know, your mom didn’t talk too much to me about that time. But I’m pretty sure the two of you got along just fine. Without me. It wasn’t fine, but we managed because you had each other. Because we had each other.

And now without her, I just, I don’t know, dad, I just, I don’t know.

Yeah. Okay. I’ll just turn up at Zander’s door with a smile and all my worldly goods. Mm. It might be a bit much. Tell you what, you’ve been working out the paper. You got some bucks to rub together. Why don’t I go over to the Salem End book us a room. Better yet a suite? No. Sweet. I can afford a room. A small one.

Two queen size beds. Twin. Twin beds, fine. Cheap scape. Okay, while I take care of our lodgings, you go over to Xander’s motel room and you claim your prize. Bit of a crass way to put it, don’t you think? Crass smash. He is a major prize and you are gonna win now go get him, girl.

I meant there’s an element of danger being with you that part of me liked.

I said I liked it with reservations. I thought that I could soften your rough edges, but instead the other way around happened. We changed each other, Sarah. That’s how love’s supposed to work, isn’t it? Yeah, but not when one person keeps lying to the other and commits crimes and betrays your trust. That is not how love works.

Here we go again. I mean, you lecture me on how I’m not good enough for you. Then you leave, but then you come back. Sarah,

I’m not coming back this time,

so you might as well.


dears. Stephanie, I know you have no reason to forgive me. But

Dad, we are going to get through this. Mom would never forgive us if we didn’t. You’re right about that.

And Dad, I’m sorry. I’ve been so wrapped up in my personal problems that I haven’t appreciated how lucky I’ve been. Not just in having mom for as long as I did, but finding that pie and the note from her. It was like, it was like she got to say goodbye to me even if I didn’t have the chance to say it to her.

That’s a beautiful way to look at it.

We are going to be okay. Because we have each other.

Yes, we do.

Hey, yeah. I, I think, I think maybe you should at least go and talk to Stephanie. I don’t know. I, I, um, she, she just lost her, her mother. I can’t just show up at her door and bear my shoulder. I disagree. I disagree. I think, I think maybe this is the exact time that she needs to hear from people who care about her shrink.

Oh. Years of therapy will do that to you.

I’ve just said so much loss lately. Abigail, Arlene, Kate, Kayla, I, I just think maybe we’re, we’re forgotten. That we’ve, we’ve gotta live as well as grieve, which is just, I guess, a common way of saying that Maybe, maybe if there is a, a connection between the two of you, between you and Stephanie, and maybe you, you should, you should explore it.

I know, I know Abigail loves Stephanie, and I know, I just think that she, she wouldn’t be all right with, with you finding out, seeing if you could get close to her. Who knows?

I think that’s what you want. And listen, whatever you decide,

it’s your choice. I will support you.

It’s time for you to remember when you first realized you were in love with Gabriela Hernandez, when you were locked up together in the Secret Room. I should have admitted it before now, but my pride, my ego wouldn’t let me do it. I am done with all that now. If we never get outta here, I’m not leaving anything unfinished.

That’s why I’m laying it all out on the line. I care for you. Get me Hernandez, and I’m done pretending. I don’t

it’s worth

what’s going on. The equipment. He’s a bit older than his.

Hi. Ah, watch where you’re going. Oh, I see Zander finally signing the papers. It’s none of your damn business.

You go Gwenny.

I, Steve, I’m so sorry my Kayla. I’m so sorry.

Ready or not. Steph, you’re right. Come. Are you, can you.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Oh, oh no. Oh my God. No. Please don’t believe us. I’m so dying.

I didn’t get to tell her how much in loved. I don’t wanna die. I’m not here.

Yes, skip. Of course. I want you to hold the front page, this new expose on the sale and police department’s gonna send our online subscription. Soaring. Yes, I’m talking rampant corruption, gross incompetence, and personal benefits.

Skip. I’m gonna have to call you back. Yeah, right. Bye Dad. , I didn’t know you were coming in. It’s um, that’s really lovely to see you. Hi. I don’t suppose that you’ll feel that way when you find out why I’m here. Okay. I spoke to ra. I know what you did.

Oh, come on Nate. Well, you’re gluten for punishment. We all know you’re never gonna be good enough for Meg Ryan, so all you do is all a favor and just stop trying. We’ve never watched a romcom before.

Who is it?

This very bloody important.

Going somewhere I can explain. Uh, please do, because I’m having trouble falling along. You send me off to take a shower so we can consummate our marriage and when I come out, I find you sneaking outta my suite like a cat burglar. What’s going on here, Gabby?


Like Sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

I must say Bonnie is a very understanding person. that she is Sarah, honey. Justin was just telling me that Bonnie convinced you to give Xandra another chance. Mm-hmm. , she did. Unfortunately, it didn’t stick. What? Yeah. I’m sorry to get your hopes up, mom, but stating my marriage to Xander is not in the cards.

Oh, no. What changed your mind? Oh man, I don’t know. I was probably finding my husband half naked with Gwen Rizk.

Can’t believe the police commissioner had to call you in Boston to disparage your daughter. Is it true? Did you help Sandra cover up some kidnapping spree? Is just trying to create cover for himself. I mean, is there any wonder why the Salem Police Department’s reputation is in the bloody toilet? If you ask me, Hey, I think he’s doing his both a favor, how do you figure he thought maybe your father could speak to you, took some sense into you, if that’s still possible.

What did the Fair Commissioner have to tell you then? Enough for me to know that you could be in serious trouble for not cooperating with the police? Is that what you told you, Gwen? What are you thinking? Sandra kidnapped two women when who ended up dead. Why are you trying to help him cover up his crimes?

Is that any way to treat the guy who saved your magnificent? Or have you forgotten how I dawned on that muscle bound clown suit? Oh, I thank you, Mr. Cook. I’d love to come in for a visit. Looks like I interrupted quite the party. What do you want? Well, for starters, I’d like for you to acknowledge what I did for you.

I guess you, you do, I do. Can owe you one, uh, more than one. Yeah. Yeah. Don’t rub it in. Yeah. Start with a drink. Have we given up on glasses? It’s come to that. Just trying to cut out the middle man. How? How the mighty have fallen to think that gorgeous temple of yours used to luxuriate on Egyptian cotton at Curios Mansion.

Sheets are overrated. So is my family. What are you doing? I wanted to give you a heads up concerning, I’m kind of, sort of testifying against you to a grand jury.

Well, isn’t it obvious why I’m leaving? Uh, no, it isn’t. Well, I’ve changed my mind in case you weren’t aware. It’s a woman’s prerogative to do so. You changed your mind about being with. That’s right. I don’t believe you. You don’t believe that I’ve changed my mind. I don’t believe that you had any intention of getting back together with me, let alone making love to me today.

That’s why’d you really come here. I don’t have to explain anything to you. Not after everything you did to me and Stephan, why the hell are you here, Gabby? I thought for a second that. Then I could forgive you, but after I was in this room waiting for you to get outta the shower, I realized how wrong I was.

I, I never could have been able to get past what you did to the only man I’ve ever loved. Goodbye. Hey, hey. You’re not walking outta here until you tell me what you’re up to. Let go with me. Pick none. Whatcha you doing? I’m get out. Go. Hey,

this why you came to my room.

This is a collect call from Statesville Prison. Do you accept?

Please help me understand why on earth would you cover for crimes?

Van was desperate. He is always desperate. Look, he was in terrible debt and he didn’t have enough money for a place to stay, so he took a job with Ava Vitali just to get back on his. And by job you mean kidnapping Susan Banks and ransoming her to EJ Damira. It was meant to be a simple transactions. Zer never meant for Susan to get hurt.

I’m sure that’s a comfort to ej who lost his mother and Johnny who lost his grandmother. Zander lets Susan go. Well that’s really swell of him, isn’t it? Tell me about Bonnie. She’s in his family. Oh God, dad, come on. It’s not like Bonnie’s some sort of a saint or she to your sister, and that’s supposed to make it what Sandra did.

Okay. I didn’t say that then. What are you saying after everything he’s done, Gwen, why are you still defending?

Is this some kind of junk? I’m afraid not. Butter. My lawyer thinks, telling the police what I know is my only chance of staying outta prison. You told a lawyer what I did. Well, yes, but it’s nothing to worry about. I, it’s privileged or whatever. Nothing to worry about. He says, after his barrister advises him to throw me under the bus and back repeatedly over the body, she thinks she can get me a generous plea deal.

Oh, bully for you. Well, look, I didn’t wanna testify against you, at least not at first, especially since I couldn’t do it anonymously. So you were hoping that you could ruin my life with without anyone discovering your planet. Yes. I’m trying to go a jet. Hey, this is because of my cousin Sonny, isn’t it? You were worried how he’d react if he learned that you helped me kidnap his stepmom.

He believed I’d changed. Huh? Why did you decide to wrap me up? Will Horton. If that messy little queen overheard me talking to my lawyer and told Sonny everything, so now it’s every man for himself.

This is what you were after, isn’t it? I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’ve never seen that phone before. It’s my burner. Why would you need a burner phone? You know what? Don’t even answer that. It’s probably to make all your untraceable shading deals. I use it only to communicate with Dr. But I suspect you already knew that.

Oh, and looks like someone made an outgoing call to him while I was in the shower. Still wanna pretend like you’ve never seen this before?

I’m sorry, sir. I’m having trouble hearing you. You have a collect call from Statesville Prison. Will you accept? Hello? Yes, yes. Hello? Hello. Accept. I’ll accept. Hello. Who is this? Hello, son. It’s your mother.

Mother, you have no idea how happy I am to hear your voice . Is that so? Yes. My ex-wife, Gabby, she totally snapped. She locks me up in the secret room, in the Demer mansion. You need to send help. You have to. I don’t have to do anything. And why should I lift a finger to such an ungrateful son?

Admit a cab. You send me into the shower so you could snoop around and then you called Rolf on this phone. What if I did, you know? For a second. I actually started to believe you, but I should have known, you’ll never give up this obsession you have with Stephan. Never. Not until he’s back to himself. Not until I undo every single thing that you have done to him.

I talk to Ralph. Not only has he agreed to get Stephan back to how he was, but he’s on the way to Salem as we speak.

I can’t believe that Zander would take up with that awful Gwen again. Especially after what she put you through. I should have seen it coming. I just, I didn’t think it was gonna happen this soon. Are you sure that you didn’t misunderstand the situation? I look, Xander insisted that he could explain why they were in a state of undress.

But does it really matter? Of course it does. He’s just gonna be more excuses mom. And maybe he’s telling you the truth this time. Maybe he is telling me the. This time

seeing him like that with that woman, it, it just proved to me that I’m never going to be able to trust him again. You don’t think, you don’t think you’re being a little rash, rash, mom. I have given him so many chances. I know what I’m doing. Of course you do. But if even Bonnie was willing to give Xander another chance.

Surely you can too.

Dad, Sando was about to lose everything. His relationship with Justin, his freedom, his marriage to Sarah. So you created a fake company where he could pretend to work to cover his tracks.

Yes, that was dodgy. Yes, but Zander had told me that he was done working for Ava. He just wanted to prove to his family that he wasn’t a complete screw up. He certainly failed in that attempt, didn’t he? I know you’re disappointed in me, sweetheart. We have graduated from disappointed to disgusted about three schemes ago.

This is different how? Because I had nothing to do with Bonnie or Susan’s kidnapper. You are an accessory after the fact. I was helping a friend. No. Helping a friend is giving them a truck to move, not enabling them to cover multiple felonies. Okay? So it wasn’t the best judgment, it was the worst judgment.

And this happened over and over again. But you have a chance to salvage all of this. To make it right for me and all the people you’ve heard,

wow. Go to the police and tell them everything, you know, I can’t. I can’t do that to Zander. If I turn him in, I would lose him. Would you rather lose me?

Little Horton knows what I did. What the hell are you thinking? How was I supposed to know that little sneak was eavesdropping? What if he writes one of his exposes about me? Worse shit turns my tragic downfall into his next flick. For peacock, I could think of worse faces. I could see a Hemsworth doing you justice, which.

Not Chris. What are we even talking about? I don’t know. Hot Aussies, she was just trying to distract me from the situation at hand. Uh, relaxed cookie. You don’t have to worry about Wilhelmina. She wasn’t snooping in my life for a story then what was Will snooping about for? She wanted to get me out of Sunny’s life and you know what?

It worked. He wants nothing more to do with me. It’s because your shabby little love triangle blew up in your face. You’re gonna sell me out. Well, it’s nothing personal, big guy. I just have to look out for my own interests.

What if I offered you another incentive? What incentive?

I dunno. By opens negotiation. What are you proposing?

You’re making a mistake, Gabby. The only mistake I ever made was trusting a man like you and I’m out of here. You think you can keep me here against my will? I would never do something like that. Gabby. Smart man. And my brother’s just itching for a solid reason to lock your ass up. I don’t need to keep you here by force because I don’t think you really wanna leave.

Really? No, I really do wanna leave. But see, there’s a little part of you that must know you’re wasting your time with Stephan Damir. Part of you that knows how much better it is to be with a man who actually wants you, who understands what we can be together, you think it’s a waste of time to want my husband back.

Back to the way he was before you and your mad scientists were playing in his. It’s a waste because Stephan doesn’t want to love you. He keeps telling you over and over that you make him sick. He has no interest in being Deprogrammed who says I’m giving him a choice.

Mother, this is not the time for your macab sense of humor. Please do. I sound like I’m joking. I, I tell you that your son has been abducted by a crazy person and you’re not even the least bit concerned. Where was your concern for your grieving mother when you rose from the dead? How many months now? And you haven’t visited me even once.

Mother, I died. You’re right. I am sorry. It’s just that I’ve been busy. Yes. And yet you send your attorneys to have me sign your late brother Jake’s Tamira Enterprise’s proxy. Over to you. Plenty of time for that. Am I right?

Dad, what are you saying? Are you saying that you can’t forgive me for helping Zander?

I’ve lost track of all the things that I have given you for four, almost assuring I’m marriage to. Tormenting Abigail, the whole Sarah debacle.

I truly, truly am sorry for all of that. So you always say over and over and over again, I have accepted that I’ve believed in because I have wanted to believe so deeply in. I have risked my whole relationship with my family, my wife, my other kids. Because of you, you know how grateful I have to have you in my life.

If you are truly grateful for my love and support, you will stop doing the things that you’re doing. Do you have any idea the position that you have put me in by helping Xander? How are you involved? You are living in my wife’s family home. You are working at my newspaper. You have weaponized a spectator launching an attack on the Salem pd.

I swear I never meant for any of this to blow back at you, and yet it has, and this is what I don’t understand. Tommy, how can you go to such desperate lengths for a guy who’s in love with another? Because he’s still my friend, whether he loves Sarah or not. And actually he’s your friend too. Did you forget that?

No. No. I have not forgotten. He is my friend too, but I will not throw my life away for him.

When you gimme no choice,

what does that mean? That means.

I am ordering you to go down to the Salem PD right now, and you swear out a statement against Sandra or else

Mom. I know that you mean well, but my mind is made up. It’s over between Sandra. , once the trust is gone, there’s just, there’s nothing left. I’m very sorry to hear that. I know that you care about Tanner and I know that you were, you were rooting for us, but we were never gonna make it work. We’re just, we’re too incompatible.

Namely, I have a moral compass and he does not well from what I have witnessed, you made my cousin want to be a better. It’s like Maggie, as for Victor. Yeah. And Victor has done some truly terrible things in his lifetime, but even he has lines he won’t cross. I can’t say the same for Xander. I’m sorry. What is happening?

I go shy now. You know you want it. It, I can remember a timer getting means bed was at the very top of your. That was a long time ago. You don’t find me attractive anymore.

I do. You’re definitely still attractive. You told me that you have nothing to lose by testifying against me, so why don’t you let me show you what you have to gain by keeping that pretty little man shut.

Okay, mother, you are right. Okay. I have failed you miserably as a son. I’ve just been so distracted by everything I. I didn’t take the time out to think about the one person who loves me most in this world. And I am sorry, but look, I promise you, I promise if you get me outta here, I will do everything in my power to get you out of that hell of a prison you’re in and back here at home with me.

Where you belong, please, mother. Are you still there? Oh, I’m here. I’m just thinking about. About how you’d saved just about anything right now to get my help. Okay? Yes. I am desperate. I am, please. I am telling you the truth. Just please get me out of here. Mother, I’ll take it under consideration.

You aren’t giving stuff on a choice about the deprogramming. What do you mean by that? Uh, nothing. It’s just a figure of speech. A figure of speech. Yes. I was just trying to say that I’m never gonna give up on him. That’s not what it sounded like, Lee. I’m not like you and Kristen and ej. I would never take away Stefan’s free will, but you would hound and harass the guy despite him telling you over and over again that he’s not interested.

I’m never gonna try to stop convincing Stefan to fight for the life that we had together, and Dr. Rolf is gonna help me accomplish.

I’m be so sure about that. Gabby,

you are ordering me to go to the police. I mean, what are you gonna send me to my bedroom if I don’t comply? Take me in for a time. You can’t force me to do anything.

No, I can’t.

You know, sometimes I wonder if I could have been a father to you when you were a little girl. Perhaps I could have taught you the difference between right and wrong. Yeah. But you weren’t

all right. I wasn’t. And I will always regret that because it’s obvious that you don’t know the difference.

So here we are.

Here we are.

Like you say, Gwen, you’re a grown woman capable of making your own decisions, so the choice is yours.

Either you go to the police and tell them everything you know about Sandra to help in his prosecution, or oh,


You are outta my life this time for good.

You would really have sex with me to stop me from testifying against you. Well, it’s not like we didn’t almost do it before, huh? Yeah. But that time you tricked me and hooked up with Sarah Horton instead, and Sarah’s gone. It’s just you and me.

We’re doing this now. Okay? Is this real? Oh, it’s very real. And this time I don’t have any tricks on my sleeve. I thought you happened. These, please. Yeah, I know that, son. Do you have a deal?

Yeah, definitely. We have a deal. Take me. Take me now.

I like it. Rough but safe for. Safe word.

You nasty. Little bomb feeder. What made you think you wal in here and threatened me with no repercussions? How is it threatening? Oh, no, she was just casually informing me. Then you intend to testify against me in court if you’ve forgotten who I am. This a storm from snapping your neck. Right. Maybe not wanting to add murder charges to your list of offenses, baby, I don’t care.

Already lost Sarah. Most people would say that she was my conscience. Don’t only thing keeping me from turning into the worst version of myself. Is this the worst version of you? Like you said, what have I gotta lose?

You, you keep away. Make no mistakes, doc. If you tell the cops, then you help me and we’ll make sure that you join Susan Banks in the afterlife. You understand perfectly.

Justin, you said yourself, Sarah makes Xander a better. , well, not good enough to keep him from kidnapping his wife. I went along with Bonnie’s decision to give Xander a second chance, but I don’t think I’ll ever be able to overlook what Xander did to Bonnie and Susan. I he, he’s not a bad person. No, but he does bad things at a certain point.

You just have to accept that that’s who he. I am really glad to hear you say that Maybe you could drop the divorce papers so soon. Mom, are you not listening to me? I am ready to move on from this marriage.

Justin, I can get the paperwork started right. Thank you. Uh, should be pretty straightforward. No kids. Not much in the way of marital assets. How soon do you want them? As soon as possible.

You would, you would cut me out of your life. If, if I don’t flip on. I couldn’t understand why you’d be skeptical after all the times that I have threatened to disown you only to to, to bring you right back into my life and into my heart for your dead time. I have to be No, no, you don’t, dad. No. We, we can, we can fix this.

I mean, h how is this different from an hit any other time? Losing Abigail has changed everything for me. Everything, my relationship to life, to family, to the preciousness of time. I wanna spend the time I have. Making Jennifer as happy as I can, honoring the legacy of my daughter, spending time with JJ and the grandkids.

I don’t want to lose you,

but I can’t keep dealing with the negativity and the drama that you bring.

I can’t. It’s too, it’s everything’s unsafe. So do the right thing. Go to Rafe, tell him everything you know, Alexander, or you will lose not only the roof of your head and your job at the Spectator, but me as a father, the choice is your.

What’s gonna be

No mother, please. There’s no time for you to think this over. You gotta get me out of this room. Okay. Before Gabby gets back, there’s no telling what she might do. Mother, please. I’m begging you. Just gimme mother. What did you just say mother? What the hell? Oh. Hi. Hi, Viv. Yes. This is your once and future daughter-in-law, Gabby Hernandez.

He said what? Always so dramatic. Yeah, no. I know that you’re upset that Stefan hasn’t come visit you, but you, he’s had plenty of time to take Chloe to, uh, New York for Christmas and Miami for New Year’s. Mother, can you hear me? Yes, exactly. Chloe Lane. No, I need to talk to, I know it’s really awful what she did to your beloved Philip.

It’s crazy because the Stephan that we both know and love would never treat us this way. She never liked you mother. You never liked her. You know, I’m just thinking that when Rolf brainwashed step to hate me and love Chloe, maybe he did something to make him stop caring for you too. It’s a lie. Mother.

You can’t believe her. No, no, no, no. Sleep. Okay. Sorry about that. Yeah. Oh, no, that was, um, no, that was nothing. Listen, you and I, we are on the same page. We want Stephan to be 100% in his right mind and no longer under Dara’s mind control. Yes. Once he’s deprogrammed, I, I will see to it myself that he visits you at least once a week.

Okay. Nice talking to you. What? Okay. Bye. In.

Nice try, but funny story. Mommy. Weirdest is team stabby. Ha, I’m telling you. Oh, that’s right, stabby live with it. Ha.

It’s leash shin. I have an assignment for you. I need you to make sure Dr. Wilhelm Rolf stays away from Salem permanently.

Thank you. I hope you’re not upset with me for agreeing to represent Sarah in this divorce. No, of course not. It’s what Sarah wants, but it’s not what you want. Oh, Justin, I learned a long time ago. You can give advice and you can be there for your tournament. In the end, you just have to. You have to step back and support their decisions.

Sarah is probably at the motel as we speak, breaking the news to Zander.

He loves her so much. You know, he’s not gonna take this well.

I swear to God, if that’s you, I am ready to commit murder. I am ready to. Sarah, I wasn’t expecting you. Uh, can I commit? Yeah, course. I just, I put some quotes. You don’t have to. I’ve seen it fall anyway. I won’t belong.

What’s this? Divorce papers. Our marriage is over. Zander.

Go here.

I thought you’d like to know. I’ve decided not to testify against Sander. Turns out telling the truth may be hazardous to my health. Hello? Well, that makes two of us. You decided not to turn on Zander today. I thought you’d already made up your mind not to cooperate with the police. Yeah, I did until my father turned up and gave me an ultimatum.

What kind? Ofum? The kind where I either testify against Sandra or he will disown me. Oh my God. And you chose Xander.

Looks like I’m on my own again. Jack made good on his threat. He kicked me out the house fired me from the spectator. He said I no longer have a father.

You trying to, if you scream, it goes back on

you’re insane. You know that. I’m determined there’s a difference. How many times do I need to tell you no matter what you do, I will not fall in love with you again. We’ll see about that. Oh, looks like we have a visitor.

All right. Now who’s down for a little deprogramming.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


you think it’s a goodidea to attend this memorial with the attacker still out there? Thanks for the concern, but I — I —

[ Doorbell rings ] I’ll get that.

[ Exhales deeply ] Aunt stella! When did you get back in town?! Hugs first. Answers second.

[ Laughs ] Ohh! I was just making sure that you got the final guest list and the dinner orders? Oh, great. Great. Can you send it to the venue? Okay. Thank you so much. And I will talk to you soon.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Bye. You’re in the homestretch. Your wedding day will be here before you know it.

[ Sighs ] If I can get everything done on time. So? Anything off? Oh, it was, uh — thank you. It was a delivery next door, and the driver lingered a bit. You know? Come on, darling. You’ve been at this since 2:00 A.M. We didn’t get here by lowering our guard. Too early for a little kick? Oh. Uh, no. It’s 5:00 P.M. In paris. Being a fugitive really messes with your sense of time. Oh, you won’t be fugitives for long. We will nail victor cassadine. Eventually. In the meantime, the world goes on without us. Just think — by this afternoon, our daughter will be here. I’ll get to see her beautiful face. Beautiful just like her mother. Our family is expanding today. I just — I just know that this stem-cell transplant is going to work. Michael… e-everything is working out. Our own child’s stem cells can save you, and I cannot be more grateful. I couldn’t face life without you. I’m not going anywhere. Not when I’m finally evening the playing field in our house. Two males. Two females.

[ Both laugh ]

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh.

[ Muttering ] Oh, melanie is here to pick up wiley. I just got to find the nurse that took him to get apple juice. I cannot wait to tell him that his baby sister is being born today.

[ Door closes ] Won’t be long now. You have to be strong, sweetie. Mommy’s praying for your health first…and then hers. Of course, I want it to all work out, but if it doesn’T… …I’m thankful for the chance to see your face.

[ Knock on door ] Carly! What is it? D-did willow have a setback? No. No. It’s just the opposite. Willow — I think she’s gonna be okay. Really? Really! That’s incredible. It’s incredible! Incredible! We probably shouldn’t have done that. Ah. No. No. I know, I know. Seems, um, risky. I don’t think anyone saw us.

Cousin wanda sends her love to all. Ohh! I cut my trip short so I can come back and help with the prep. Come here! Aunt stella, you didn’t have to do that. Oh, please. It was just a few days. And I-I wanted to help. Well, I hope your cousin wasn’t too disappointed. Stella: Oh, look, I love london, and I really love spending time with wanda, but she understood how important this is. And on the subject of weddings, where’s portia? Oh, she’s at work right now. Look at you. Ohh! Just as pretty as can be! How are you doing? I’m sorry to hear about your friend rory. It’s tragic. What is the world coming to? I don’t know, stella. It was thoughtful of you to send the card. I really appreciate it. And what about that awful esme prince?

[ Scoffs ] I heard she showed up. Yeah, she’s been remanded to spring ridge until her trial. Good. I hope she stays there. On a permanent basis. That way, justice can be served and trina can finally move on.

[ Chuckles ] But until then… we have a wedding to lift our spirits! And I have a surprise for the bride-to-be. Jordan. You’re here for britt westbourne’s memorial? I am. Tj’s attending, and I wanted to be there for him.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh. You’re wedding planner again? It’s the boutique, checking on my appointment to pick up my wedding dress. That’s so exciting! You’re gonna be beautiful.

[ Device beeping ] Oh. Ahh. That’s me. I have a meeting. I’ll see you at the memorial, commissioner ashford.

[ Softly ] Good luck with the dress. Sasha: I have to admit — manicures before the memorial seemed a little out there when you made the suggestion, but I’m starting to see the wisdom. On days like today, when the sadness is overwhelming but I still have to go out and face the world, I found that feeling like I look my best gives me this strange sort of strength to get through it. Really? I can barely muster the energy to comb my hair. Oh, yeah. I totally fall apart afterwards, when I’m alone. But then I have to figure out dinner or read a bedtime story. Right. It’s different with kids. I will always remember the kindness that britt showed me and brando when we lost liam. I’m so sorry for your loss, maxie. Thank you. I’m sorry for yours, too. I would totally grab your hands right now, but don’t want to mess up my nails. I still can’t believe that I’m saying goodbye to britt today. I get that. I feel like all I do is say goodbye to people. Any signs of life from lucy or martin? I left coffee and muffins outside their room. I imagine they’re pretty tired.

[ Chuckles ] Or they died with smiles on their faces. I hope that they continue to cooperate because we’re all gonna have to lay low. Despite everything we know and despite everything we’ve been through, we still don’t have enough concrete evidence to nail victor. We need irrefutable proof. You know, and I, for one, am feeling like I’ve lost my patience, honestly. We need to refocus and regroup, because taking down victor and getting justice for luke is the most important thing, right? Yeah, of course. I think, uh, not being home for the holidays has kind of affected me more than I realize. I haven’t seen robin or emma or noah for I don’t know how long. Hey. You got messages to them. They know you’re safe. You and charlotte were just reunited after she was away in europe for so long. And now

you’re on the run. Leaving her again must be really hard on you. It’s not as hard as her thinking that I’m dead. What are you doing here? I was just about to tell him to… dr. Randolph says there may be another way to treat my leukemia. I’m about to have a c-section. Our baby’s being born today. Is that safe? She’ll be premature. But she’s developed enough to withstand it. And, uh, yeah, once the baby’s born, the doctors will take the stem cells from the umbilical cord and the placenta to treat willow’s leukemia. That is, after more rounds of chemo. It’s the answer we’ve been waiting for. Well, I’m gonna pray for both of you. I mean, I’m gonna pray for all three of you. And I can’t wait to see… my granddaughter. I’m sure nina’s gonna be overwhelmed, you know? Unless, uh, we’re not welcome to see our grandchild? I hope you know that this drives me crazy. I can’t wait to show you how I feel about you out in public. I know. I know. This will be over soon. But right now we have to practice restraint. Right? Hmm. Easier said than done. Come on.

[ Chuckles ] My… aren’t you two cozy?

Nina! I didn’t know you were here. I just arrived to see my daughter because I lost so much time with her. Ohh. I just got here myself. We must have just missed each other in the elevator. Yes. I’d imagine you were in a rush to see carly. And michael and willow. You know, the family needs support right now. You know, I have to say, drew, I’m really surprised on how quickly you forgave carly after she lied to you. But I should expect it because no matter how much damage carly does, people still flock to her side. You really want to compare damage, nina? Or the people who forgive you no matter what? Charlotte isn’t going to grieve you. Alright? Laura will explain everything to her. She will understand. Charlotte’s a very smart cookie. I know. She’s remarkable. She’ll read between the lines. She knew I was planning her escape from boarding school without having to be told. And if victor thinks that we’re dead underground in paris, then we need to capitalize on that. So if I have to stay away from charlotte to keep her safe, then I’ll manage. I’ll be back shortly. I have a quick errand to run. No. Where are you going? To the pharmacy. My allergies are acting up. Uh-huh… hm.

[ Door closes ] I don’t believe her. Do you believe her? She doesn’t have allergies. Was felicia giving us a little alone time? I don’t know. Because if she was… thank you, felicia. Days like these are really hard. I know they bring to mind nathan for me… and probably brando and liam for you. I think about them every day. And then we lost lucy. Now there’s britt. Wait. We don’t know that lucy is gone yet. I’m keeping hope alive. It’s been so long, and she still hasn’t turned up. She hasn’t turned up dead yet, either. We have to stay positive. That’s the lucy coe way, right? I mean, what if — what if we had a defeatist attitude when the deception stock was tanking? We turned things around by remaining positive. True. It’s a good thing that we did not give up. Right. We kept the faith. Because our company is resilient.

We are resilient. And, damn it, lucy coe is resilient, too. Aunt stella, what are you up to? Nothing! I just want to take trina and portia to lunch. Oh, well, mom’s picking up her dress from the bridal boutique today.

[ Gasps ] Even better! We could have lunch and all go to the boutique together! I’m sorry. I can’t go. Dr. Westbourne’s memorial service is this afternoon. Oh, dear. I didn’t realize. Such a tragedy. I’m sorry if I’m ruining your plans. No, no, baby. It’s okay. It’s okay. I understand. I hadn’t planned on going, but a friend needs me. I can’t argue with that. You’re a good friend, trina. Okay. I should probably get going to G.H. Oh, wait a minute! I can take you! And then I’ll pick up portia while I’m there. Oh, really?! That would be great! Thank you. Oh, wait. I forgot that my phone is still charging upstairs. Okay. Go ahead. Okay. Well, how are you doing, marshall? Terrific. How are you? I’m so looking forward to this wedding. I got my officiant’s license and speech all prepared. How’s the music coming for the reception? What’s going on? Uh, it’s a work in progress. Okay. “A work in progress.” What’s the hold-up, marshall? Well, you know, aunt stella, these things take time. H-have you talked to tj? Does he know you’re in town? Oh, I just talked to him last week. He was on his way into surgery, and he was so excited about it!

[ Laughs ] How’s trina holding up? She’s doing as well as she can be. Having a wedding to concentrate on must be a welcome distraction. I suppose. Well, it was so nice catching up with you. If you’ll excuse me. Actually… I need to speak with you about a sensitive subject. Okay. I had an intense conversation with taggert earlier. About what? You and curtis. And trina.

Carly, you know what? You can pretend that I don’t exist, but I’m telling you this — I promise you this. I’m not going anywhere! Sonny: Is there a problem? Really? No, no. There’s no problem. We’re leaving. We are leaving.

[ Sighs ] You okay? I hate your ex. You want some good news? Hmm. There may be a way to save willow’s life.

[ Exhales sharply ] Hey, hey. Do you think nina caught on to what’s going on between us? At least deception stock is thriving now, so when lucy comes back, we’ll be solvent. Because we were able to think on our feet. Surprisingly, we have gladys to thank, as well. If she hadn’t signed off on the plan, the stock would still be tanking. Can I ask — is it — is it weird for you that gladys gets to make all of your financial decisions? Heh. I think her heart is in the right place. But it has definitely taken some getting used to. Gladys can be persistent about what she wants. Like what? Oh, you don’t — you don’t have to tell me. It’s okay to say that I need to mind my own business. No, it’s — it’s okay. Um, I think, of all people, you would understand. Gladys wants to sell brando’s garage. Oh. We’ve already turned down one offer. But she got another one recently, and she’s been hounding me about it. She really wants my blessing to sell it, but I got the distinct impression that she’s gonna go through with it, whether I like it or not. Why is taggert talking to you about trina? It’s not about that. I don’t know what you’re talking about. Taggert was concerned about the security at your wedding. He’s worried the killer may consider it an opportune time to strike. And trina will be there, as well as everyone closest to her. I’ve already talked to marcus about all of this, so I don’t know why he’s going behind my back and talking to you. All of a sudden, he’s gonna second-guess me about our daughter. Oh, oh, I see. There it is. There’s the judgment. I was looking for that. I’m not judging you. Whatever decisions I make with my life are my business. I have made that perfectly clear to you, jordan. I know that.

[ Chuckles ] But I have to say, you seem very stressed out by these decisions. It might do you some good to unburden herself. So you can have curtis all to yourself? It’s so nice of you to arrange this surprise for my mom. It’ll mean the world to her.

[ Chuckles ] Your mom is part of the family now, and so are you. It’s so nice of you to feel the way you do about us. I mean, I know that family’s, like, the most important thing to you in the world. I mean, you fly out to europe multiple times a year just to see a cousin that you just met. Yeah, that’s ’cause wanda and i are two peas in a pod, even though we just found out about each other in recent years. And I am so thankful we did. You found each other on a genealogy site, right? Yeah, that’s right.

[ Sighs ] It makes me wish I followed up on my match. You had a match? Yeah. Back in high school, I took a test, and I found out that I have a-a relative right here in port charles. But then I got freaked out because I didn’t want to meet random people, and then I deleted my account. You did?! Yeah, well, maybe one day you’ll feel ready. Everybody’s doing it. Even jordan was contemplating finding more family members before I left. And — and I gave her the name of my site. I wonder if she used it. Hmm. Huh. I don’t know, but she seems to be thinking about it. I remember she asked me about it at my celebration party after my charges got dropped. And you say you took your test when? Senior year. You ready to go? Yeah… so you’re saying that my daughter could be saved by my grandchild? It’s — that’s a miracle! Well, I hope so. You know? W-what are you saying? Willow’s putting on a brave face, but she — she seems anxious. Yeah. Yeah. She’s having a c-section, which is a major surgery. I mean, it’s routine, but it’s still risky, and I would imagine more so if you have leukemia. Right, and I just think she’s — you know, she’s nervous, but she’s acting like she’s not for — you know, for michael. I see. Yeah. There may be something that I can do for my daughter after all.


[ Five knocks on door ] No one knows we’re here. No. Wait. That’s felicia’s knock. Felicia? Felicia: Anna, open up. It’s cold out here! Okay. Ohh. Did you get everything you needed? You know that I don’t have allergies. I know you don’t have allergies. But I do have a surprise. Papa!

Ma petit! Nina could have seen us. Or at least heard us. She was right there! She doesn’t know anything. Okay? Nina has no self-control. What’s that supposed to mean? If nina had seen or heard anything, she would’ve made a huge deal out of it. You saw how nasty she got when she realized that you had forgiven me. Seriously, if — if nina knows anything, there’s no way she could stop herself from making a comment. What about sonny? Sonny does know about us. Would he tell her? No. No way. No way. Sonny knows the stakes. Okay? He might be mad at me, but he knows we have to be discreet. I’m just saying if ned or one of his allies reports us to the sec for insider trading, knowing that we’re in a relationship, that gives them a very good case. Okay. As long as we stop ourselves from any more spontaneous displays of affection… we’re okay. Our loving and giving son, wiley, decided that he wanted his little sister to have this when she comes out.

[ Both laugh ] Uh, now is not a good time, nina. I promise I won’t jeopardize her health in any way. I-I was just hoping that I could talk to you alone. Just for a few minutes. It’s okay. I’ll be fine. Just a few minutes. Yeah. T-that’s all I need. I’ll be right back. I assume sonny told you about the c-section? Yeah, but that’s not why I’m here. I’m here for you. I have plenty of support. Thanks. I know. I know. People like michael and his family, ones that you have to keep up a brave face for… when, really, you’re terrified. I wouldn’t say terrified. I can, um — I can understand if giving birth like this — it’s fraught for you. And I also understand if you can’t express your true feelings to… people like michael. But you don’t have to worry about my feelings. You can say your concerns and worries and your fears and your frustrations to me. You just let it rip if you want to. You — totally be honest with me. What do you want? I just — I just want to be here for my son. Coast clear? Yeah. Aunt stella and trina left. Ohh. Man, I love your aunt stella, but…

[ Chuckles ] No, no. You don’t have to explain, dad. I know at times auntie can be a bit much.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, stella already knows portia wanted me to get those genetic tests done. Portia and I didn’t tell aunt stella anything else. She doesn’t know that we asked you to perform at our wedding ceremony; she doesn’t know that we discussed the possibility of genetic counseling. We respect your privacy. Well, stella’s gonna know soon enough. Son… I went ahead and I got those tests done. This isn’t about me and curtis. Don’t patronize me, jordan! I see what you’ve been doing. I see it! You have been trying to use trina as a wedge between us ever since you got back. What are you talking about?! You are questioning me about this, questioning me about that. And then before that, you interrogate my daughter — without the courtesy of giving me a call? And then you arrest her? You know how a member of law enforcement should not contact the family of a suspect being questioned? What about contacting a family friend? Oh, well, that depends on the suspect and the situation. Suppose the P.O.I. Is the daughter of a long-time friend and former partner of said law-enforcement officer. You’re talking about trina.

[ Bell ringing ] It’s my fault. I am very sorry, curtis. Help me understand, jordan. You said you filed those papers. I thought I had. You don’t know the things I’ve done to protect you, curtis, trina, and the family you’re building. I don’t have designs on curtis, and I’m damn sure not holding anything over you to get to him, portia. And yet you keep bringing things up, don’t you? If I was going after him, I promise you — I would have said something to curtis months ago. Stella: Said what to curtis?

You already got genetic counseling? All the tests and everything? I did it all. And? Well, I haven’t gotten the results back yet, son. Wow. Dad, I-I know how reluctant you were. I know what this means to you. I’m just glad you pushed through a-and did it. Well, I got tired of all the uncertainty. I’m proud of you. You and, uh — you and portia. You pushed me. You convinced me. I’m just sorry I hadn’t told you sooner. I suppose you didn’t have to tell us at all. Actually, I considered that. But then I realized that I was just falling into my old ways. 40 years, I’ve been afraid of this disease, of this stigma. And it — it just — son, it just became second nature to go it alone. Well, we’ve learned to respect that your business is your business. No, no. I want it to be yours, too, son. Son, I’m tired. I’m tired of running. I’m tired of being afraid. I got a wonderful son. And I got a family who loves me, and I — and I want to share everything with them — the good, the bad. Man, I got loved ones. And I’m ready to let them in. In the words of aunt stella… amen to that. Ah. And I am just glad you feel comfortable with us. And, please — please don’t ever feel like you have to keep secrets from me. Well, portia — she pushed me to get the test. But you, son — you’re the reason I did it. This is great news, pop. But what if it isn’t? I thought you were still in london. You weren’t supposed to be here for another few days, stella. Oh, well, I knew you had a million things to do, and I wanted to help. Now…what’s this that curtis needs to know? Remember how I misplaced those divorce papers? Mercy me. Don’t tell me you two are still married! What?! Uh — no, no. We are officially divorced. There are no obstacles from me that would prevent curtis and portia from marrying. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to make a call. It was great seeing you, stella. Uh-huh. That seemed a bit tense. Yeah, it — you’re right. You’re right. I just have so many wedding details to deal with. It was just me. Which is why I’m here. Yes! Yes, yes, yes! And I’m so happy now that the two of you are here. And aunt stella came to take you to lunch and pick up your dress. Oh. Aunt stella, that’s so sweet. Um, can I just have five minutes? I have a consult with dr. Randolph. Oh, it’s okay. I can entertain myself. I missed you so much, papa. I even confronted grandpa victor, thinking he’d taken you away from me again. That was a really kind thing you did. It didn’t seem fair for charlotte to grieve her father’s pretend death after everything the two of them have been through. Plus, he’s helping us take down victor. That’s true. I think there’s more to it than that, though. You got me. Yeah. I missed so much of my daughters’ lives, always off on one adventure or another. Yeah. I know that toll. As do I. Seeing how vulnerable valentin was, missing his daughter… it triggered something in me. But don’t tell him I said that. I need him to live in fear of me in case he hurts you. Oh, that’s sweet. Your secret’s safe with me. Okay. You confronted grandpa? I ran into him and couldn’t help myself. Oh, charlotte. You are so strong, and you are so outspoken. And I’m so grateful that you want to take care of me. But I need you to promise me something. Don’t ever do that again. Just know I will always come back for you. Promise? Yeah. Yeah, I promise. It’ll take more than victor cassadine to keep us apart. So you went away because anna needed help? Yeah. Yeah, that’s right. She must be pretty special to you. She is. But she’s not as special as you. On one hand, I understand how selling brando’s garage could be… really upsetting. Probably feels like another goodbye. And with gladys more or less calling the shots, I would hate how powerless that would make me feel. On the other hand, the garage is just sitting there empty. I know that, logically. But it’s really hard for me to let it go. Right after brando died, I used to just… go there a-and sit. Hoping to feel his presence. Selling it would feel like I’m — I’m giving up a part of brando. I’m so sorry, maxie. I’m — I’m making this about me when we’re mourning your sister-in-law. No, no, no. There is no monopoly on grief. No right or wrong time for it. I lost it and cried when I found nathan’s favorite can of soup. You’re allowed your own moments. How do you do it, maxie? You have suffered almost as much loss as I have over the years. And you’re not just surviving, you’re thriving. How did you learn to keep going? Not just give up on life? You have a point. The last thing I want is to bring down michael’s spirits. Yeah. You don’t have to keep up a brave front for me. You can tell me anything you want. But I can’t, though. This is all so new — us. And with our relationship being what it is, I — I need my boundaries. If I give in, the — the lines get blurry, and I — I just — I can’t, um — I can’t take that right now. I appreciate your effort, but I-I just — I can’T.

[ Knock on door ] Forgive the interruption. Willow, I was able to move you up and get you into the O.R. Right now. Time to prep you for your c-section. Uh, you’ll have to go. Huh. Yeah. Yes? Good luck, willow. You’re dealing with a lot. How you doing? Um, you don’t have to worry about me. Well, you’re still my son, and I’ll always be here for you. If you need anything, you know I’m here for you. Nina: Michael. Michael. Dr. Randolph just went into willow’s room. Excuse me. How’d it go with willow? She doesn’t want to have anything to do with me. Aren’t you supposed to be at britt’s memorial? Yeah. Uh, yeah. But I-I can be late. I-I want to stay here until she goes to surgery. They’re prepping willow right now for her c-section. Alright. You know, sonny, it looks like drew has already forgiven carly for lying to him for months about willow being my daughter. He’s that kind of guy. When did you all of a sudden become drew’s best friend? I’m not his best friend. You can’t let carly get in your head. We have to focus on willow. That’s it. Willow… forget them. …Doesn’t want anything to do with me. You know why? Because she lied. If she would have told me the truth, I wouldn’t have fought with willow all these months! We are in this situation because of revenge. You don’t want to go down that road. Fighting does not help anyone. Well, sometimes wars… are unavoidable.

What are you planning? Nothing. Nothing. I am agreeing with you, sonny. Right now we need to focus on helping michael and willow. Carly: Hey. Is she delivering already? They moved the surgery up. Oh. Willow, you’re in good hands. I’ll be monitoring everything. And I’ll see you in recovery after your baby’s born! Oh. Hey. I love you. And everything’s gonna be fine. And I can’t wait to meet your little girl, okay? Drew: Godspeed, willow. We’re gonna be right here waiting for both of you, okay? Alright. You got this. Thank you. For bringing charlotte to me. Means more than you’ll ever know. You’re welcome. I’m really sorry your — your father hasn’t been here with you these past few months. You don’t owe me an apology. Actually, I owe you. You took care of my papa and brought him home to me. So thank you. Over time, you’ll learn that you don’t need to hold on to the physical things or personal mementos that remind you of your loved ones. You’ll except that you don’t need them to hold on to your memories. Ultimately, they’re just things. And your love can never be sold or torn down, whatever. Your memories of your loved ones — they’re gonna stay with you forever. They’re still wet.

[ Chuckles ] Pop, if it’s bad news, we’ll get through it together. Look, I’m not sure I’m gonna get the results back in time for your wedding. Okay. So? Well, then I’m not gonna be able to perform, I don’t think, if I don’t get these results back. Don’t even worry about that. Son, I could not bear my illness overshadowing your big day. Trust me. It’s not a thing. Okay? I’m not mad that you can’t perform at the ceremony, and I don’t want you to be, either. The only thing that matters to me is that I have my father — my father — at my wedding. And, sir, that is the greatest gift of all. Alright. Alright. I’m not gonna beat around the bush. You and I have been through too much together, and we know that we can trust and rely on each other. Am I right? Yes. What’s on your mind? Trina told me about a genealogy test that she took in school, around about the same time I took mine. But something feels… off about it. Oh? Yeah. She also said that you spoke to her about the genealogy test, and I wonder if that’s because you think there’s something suspicious about it, too.

Nikki: I won’t try to talk you out of whatever you’re planning to persuade adam to rejoin the family. He’s your son, you love him, and that’s all there is to it.

Victor: Good. I’m glad you see it that way.

Nikki: However, I would like you to consider a few things.

Victor: I’m listening.

Nikki: Right now, everything is peaceful, for the most part.

Victor: Right.

Nikki: Nicholas and victoria are in a good place again. The company is running well. It is thriving. Now, you put adam into that mix, and that lovely equilibrium will go right out the window.

Victor: Well, not necessarily.

Nikki: Especially if he doesn’t come back for the reason that nicholas did. Nicholas felt it was the right thing to do. He wanted to be in a position to support his family, not because you were pulling strings behind the scenes.

Victor: My darling, I appreciate your thoughts.

Nikki: Yes, but you’re going to ignore them, anyway.

Victor: No, no, no, I didn’t say that. It’s always important to me to hear what you have to say. Okay? You know that.

Nikki: Well, I’m not going to tell you how to handle this. I just want to reiterate that I don’t see this scenario ending the way you do. What if adam likes his life the way it is? What about when he finds out that you are manipulating his downfall? He may never have anything to do with you again.

Victor: My baby, I hear what you’re saying, but I want to assure you that… I know my son, and I have the situation well in hand.

Kyle: I’m compiling information before the jabot board meets in february. Would you have some time this afternoon to pull some things together for me? Excellent. Please bring me the most recent status reports for all the accounts adam newman has been overseeing. Yes. All of them.

Victoria: So, uh, now that it’s just the two of us again, is there anything that you want to tell me?

Nick: You’re just not gonna let it go, are you?

Victoria: I just felt like there was something that maybe you wanted to share before tucker interrupted us.

Nick: You mean before you invited him over here to toy with him and mess with his mind?

Victoria: Well, I have to admit, it was fun turning the tables on him and watching him squirm for a change.

Nick: I highly doubt tucker is used to being the entertainment for his competitors.

Victoria: Mm-hmm. I’m sure that he’s not. You’re trying very hard to change the subject, which makes me more determined to find out what’s wrong with you. And don’t say nothing because I know better. So whatever it is, spill. I won’t say a word to anyone. I promise.

Nick: I already told you. It’S…dad.

Victoria: I know. You said it was business. And I’m not buying that. So what’s the real story?

Nick: Alright. I’m sick and tired of the way he keeps tearing down sally and pressuring me to end our relationship. Uh… you know, it’s, uh… he just dismisses it, and I’m tired of it, you know? And I just want to know when it’s gonna end.

Victoria: Is that a serious question? Come on. Dad is always going to feel the need to control our lives. Not that I condone it, of course. Look, to be honest with you, I don’t really see a future for you and sally. You are — you’re just too good for her, nicholas.

Nick: Vick —

Victoria: You’re so far out of her league, it isn’t even funny.

Nick: I don’t need this from you, either, okay?

Victoria: Why do I get the feeling that there’s something else you’re not telling me?

Lauren: My head is still in the clouds after last night. I mean, I can’t believe fen flew in to watch me accept my award.

Michael: I know what you mean. And finally meeting trey.

Lauren: Wasn’t he the sweetest?

Michael: They make a great couple.

Lauren: It’s so touching watching them in love and… even more amazing that our son is happy and healthy and excited for the future.

Michael: Yeah, their happiness is infectious.

Lauren: It is. Oh, there’s phyllis.

Michael: Hey, phyllis.

Lauren: Hi!

Phyllis: Hi! Hi. I didn’t know I’d run into you two.

Lauren: Well, now that you do, please join us.

Phyllis: I don’t want to impose.

Lauren: Oh, come on.

Michael: Don’t be ridiculous. What are friends for? Sit. Yeah.

Phyllis: Thank you.

Lauren: You were on my list to call later.

Michael: So, how are you today?

Phyllis: Terrible. Terrible. Um, I can’t catch a break with my kids.

Lauren: Oh. Are things still strained with summer?

Phyllis: Well, I mean, of course, because she fired me, so… but now there’s tension between me and daniel.

Lauren: Oh, no. I thought everything was okay.

Phyllis: What’s my crime? All I’m trying to do is help my kids. All I was trying to do with daniel is support his project and support something that was important to him.

Michael: Why am I sure there’s more to this?

Nate: So, come on — tell me. How do you know tucker mccall is interested in daniel’s gaming platform?

Audra: Because he’s the person I went to see earlier.

Nate: What?

Audra: Tucker’s the one who texted, wanting to meet with me.

Nate: The personal business you said you had to handle.

Audra: Yes.

Nate: And when you got back, you were in a great mood. You know, someone else in my place might wonder if you’re working tucker… or me… or both of us. When a cold comes on strong,

Phyllis: Okay, well, what I’m about to tell you — it can’t leave this table.

Lauren: Well, of course.

Phyllis: Alright. Um, it seems that, uh, chancellor-winters may not be the home for my son’s new project.

Lauren: You mean the gaming platform?

Phyllis: Yeah. It seems that chancellor-winters is in corporate limbo.

Michael: Oh. Well, I’m sorry to hear that.

Lauren: Yeah, daniel must be so frustrated.

Phyllis: Yeah. So I decided to be proactive and, um, shop the project around to see if I can get financial backing from another company, and, um, you know, just in case things at chancellor-winters imploded.

Lauren: Wait. What? Without consulting daniel?

Michael: Why would you meddle with that?

Phyllis: Well, I wasn’t meddling. It was just an exploratory conversation.

Lauren: And you don’t think that’s overstepping just a wee bit?

Phyllis: Well, no, because daniel gave me the authority. I’m his right-hand man.

Michael: On the technical and staffing side so he could keep his eye on the big picture…

Phyllis: Okay.

Michael: …Like deciding which company to choose to ally himself with.

Phyllis: Well, I just wanted to be proactive. I knew how important this project is to my son, but it has him doubting me again, so, i mean, I don’t know what to do. I can’t win. I mean, do I try too hard? I don’t get it.

Michael: Ohh, phyllis, i think there’s a common denominator with these problems with the children. Diane. Your intractable hostility towards her. It cost you your job at marchetti, and from what you’ve already told us, it’s creating friction between you and daniel.

Phyllis: Um, okay, diane has nothing to do with this issue right now with me and daniel. And I don’t want to get lectured about diane. Please.

Lauren: Too bad.

Victor: Just to calm your mind, I’ve taken into consideration how adam’s return would affect both victoria and nicholas. That’s why I want to find something for adam that he can run independent of them. That way, we all win.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] I hate to see you make an enemy of jack again, not to mention tucker. And then you’ll be let down when adam rejects you again.

Victor: You make that sound as if it is inevitable.

Nikki: I believe that it is.

Victor: No, it isn’T. I don’t think so. Adam will come to his senses. It’ll all work out as I have planned.

Nikki: Well, I hope it does, for your sake.

Victor: Now, there’s another issue we need to discuss, involving the break-in into our home in chicago.

Nikki: Yeah. What about it?

Victor: Jack and diane jenkins were behind that, weren’t they? They stole your jewelry in order to set up that stark fellow. When were you gonna tell me?

Nikki: I was so upset when i realized what they had done. I was this close to telling chance that jack was the real culprit.

Victor: Then why the hell didn’t you?

Nikki: Ohh, there doesn’t seem to be anything to be done now. I mean, jack and diane were very careful not to implicate themselves. I’ll get my necklace back soon. And, frankly, I’m relieved that jeremy stark is off the streets.

Victor: That bastard belongs back in prison.

Nikki: I wish phyllis had never reached out to him. She’s the reason why he was here in town, putting us all in danger. But given the circumstances, I’m willing to look the other way.

Victor: I’ve got to tell you, I’m furious with jack abbott breaking into our home there. He took a huge risk.

Nikki: Yeah. For diane. Makes me sick.

Victor: Baby, put that woman out of your mind! She’s jack’s problem. They deserve each other.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Look, I could use some back-up here, alright? You may not see a future for me and sally, but that’s up to me, alright? I’m gonna decide where it goes from here and what it looks like.

Victoria: Okay. I hear your frustration.

Nick: I’m just tired of feeling like I have to defend sally — or why it’s even an issue. She’s done nothing to deserve the constant attacks or dad’s never-ending insistence that i end things with her. Vick, I’m asking you, if you have any negative thoughts about it, just keep them to yourself and accept that sally is a part of my life, alright?

[ Cellphone ringing ] Oh, it’s sally. She and chloe went to meet with jill to pitch her a business idea. I have to take this. Hey. I was hoping you’d call. How’d the big presentation go? Jill did what?

Tessa: Okay, so…

Mariah: Yeah.

Tessa: That’s the head, right, that’s facing us?

Mariah: Elena!

Tessa: Hi.

Mariah: Hi! Okay. You have to come see this.

Elena: What’s up?

Tessa: It’s from delphine, the woman whose child we’re gonna adopt.

Elena: Ah.

Mariah: They’re both healthy and doing fantastic, but she just came from her latest check-up with her ob and… ta-da!

Elena: Ah!

Mariah: It’s her latest ultrasound. Isn’t it amazing?

Elena: Aww, that is so sweet of her to send this.

[ Chuckling ] Ooh. You two must be so excited. I’m so happy for you.

Mariah: Ah. [ Laughs ]

Tessa: Thank you.

Mariah: Are you okay?

Elena: Yeah. Why do you ask?

Mariah: Uh, because you don’t seem okay.

Elena: I’m fine.

Mariah: Come on. Elena, it’s us. If something is bothering you, we want to know about it.

Elena: You’re celebrating today. I don’t want to dampen the mood.

Tessa: You wouldn’t be.

Mariah: Please talk to us. If you don’t, we’re just gonna worry, so…

Elena: [ Chuckles ] Okay.

[ Sighing ] Uh… it’s about nate and his new job, specifically this new woman he hired as his coo. I don’t trust her.

Audra: I assure you I work for you and you alone because you have the drive and instincts of a winner. I want to share in the success newman media is gonna become under your leadership, which is why I responded to tucker’s request to go meet with him. I was curious to see what his next move will be so I can keep you informed.

Nate: And?

Audra: Well, tucker’s original goal — okay? — His big master plan, was to gain control of jabot and put ashley at the helm and then do the same thing with chancellor-winters, putting devon in charge, so he can work side by side with the two people he claims to love the most in the world.

Nate: Ambitious.

Audra: Yeah, a little too ambitious. His plan went down in flames. But I know tucker’s mind, okay? He’s the kind of man who needs a target, and now he’s doubly motivated after this big failure.

Nate: I assume tucker wants to use you to feed him information about newman, the way he did chancellor-winters, to find some vulnerability?

Audra: I thought that at first, too, but, I mean, he seemed more curious about our interest in daniel romalotti’s omega sphere project — because, of course, he’s interested, too.

Nate: Mm. Well, props to daniel for creating what’s suddenly the hottest new business venture in town.

Audra: Yeah.

Nate: The good news is… I’ve got a secret weapon.

Audra: Which is?

Nate: You.

Audra: Hmm.

Nate: You’ve worked closely with tucker long enough to have gotten adept at predicting which direction he’ll take.

Audra: Allowing us to stay a step ahead of the competition.

Nate: I like the sound of that.

Audra: And I like seeing you like this — hungry, loving the game.

Nate: You know, I never got a chance to experience this at chancellor-winters because devon held me back. But now that I’m the boss, I see why people like victor and victoria find the — the power intoxicating.

Audra: It looks good on you.

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Nick: Unreal.

Victoria: What? What happened?

Nick: Sally and chloe flew to los angeles at jill’s request to pitch her their new idea of their interior design business. They’ve been working for weeks — seriously, day and night — so they could dazzle jill. And then out of nowhere, she just cancels.

Victoria: Hmm. Did she offer any explanation?

Nick: Nah, she just said that she was having second thoughts and she wasn’t sure their concept would be a good fit with chancellor-winters. When sally asked her what changed — because she was so enthusiastic the day before — jill wouldn’t elaborate.

Victoria: Maybe she thought that it didn’t make sense right now, given all the turmoil that the company is going through.

Nick: Then why didn’t she just say that?

Victoria: I don’t know. There could have been any number of reasons for the change that jill didn’t feel the need to share.

Nick: No. Something’s not right about jill so abruptly pulling the plug. And I intend to get to the bottom of it. I’m feeling better.

Kyle: Huh. Well, adam, I definitely see a pattern here.

Summer: Kyle?

Kyle: Hey! How was, uh, your lunch with the new head of accounting?

Summer: It went well. I think she’s gonna be a really good fit. What were you looking at?

Kyle: Uh, just some corporate reports I requested. Bunch of boring numbers.

Summer: Really? You looked pretty engrossed.

Kyle: Well, that’s why I’m the suit and you’re the creative genius.

[ Elevator doors opening ]

Daniel: Hey. Uh, sorry to interrupt, guys. Summer, if you’ve got a minute, um, to talk, there’s something i could really use your help with.

Summer: Uh…

Kyle: It’s fine. Go ahead. I was just gonna drop these off in my dad’s office.

Daniel: Want to go?

Summer: Yeah. Yeah.

Lauren: How many times have we talked about how your hatred for diane is going to eat you up alive?

Michael: It’s so not worth the trouble.

Lauren: And worse yet, it’s affecting the relationships with both of your kids.

Phyllis: Mnh, no. The situation with daniel has nothing to do with diane. It’s about me being clear-eyed about the situation. Listen, I don’t want all of my son’s hard work being destroyed by some vague promises from lily.

Lauren: I thought you said they had a signed contract. I mean, that’s not exactly vague.

Michael: The last time you clashed with him, daniel told you that he was worried he’d made a mistake hiring you because of your animosity towards diane, remember? It was — it was — it was consuming you so much, it was interfering with your ability to do your work.

Phyllis: No, that conversation was based on me just being distracted. But I was still doing my work.

Lauren: In your opinion. It seems like daniel has disagreed with that.

Phyllis: Okay, well, there’s very little I could do anyway because the project hasn’t been greenlit, alright? So I just shopped it around to see if I could get some interest, and I did.

Lauren: Yeah, but it doesn’t matter if daniel doesn’t want to work with that company.

Phyllis: Well, lauren, it’s not like I closed the deal. It’s up to him if he wants to work with them or not. And that’s what I told him. But he didn’t listen to me.

Michael: Well, these things tend to be cumulative. You know, any previous conflict could have intensified your son’s reaction to you today.

Phyllis: Guys, he’s upset at me because of his own conflicts. Trust me.

Daniel: [ Sighs ] Thanks for taking this walk with me. After my blow-out with mom, i just really needed to get some air. What is with her lately, huh? God knows she’s never been easy to deal with, but, I mean, this seems like next level. Hey. You alright? You seemed a little off at the office. Did you and kyle have a disagreement?

Summer: Um…not exactly. It’s — it’s nothing kyle said or did. It’s this feeling that I got, like — like he’s hiding something from me. I just… I really hope I’m wrong.

Victor: Hello, kyle.

Kyle: Hello.

Victor: Please close the door. So…what have you got for me?

Kyle: I’ve been going over all the accounts adams’s been handling at jabot, all the duties my dad’s assigned to him, every decision he’s made since he took the job. Then I spoke with the various department heads of jabot who report to him.

Victor: And?

Kyle: I found something interesting, something I think you can use to get adam out of the company.

Victor: Let’s hear it. Tyson boneless buffalo bites and hot wings

will continue. What’s the #1 retinol brand

Mariah: You’re talking about audra charles.

Elena: Yeah. How’d you know?

Mariah: Well, word gets around fast. And the newman media coo is a very high-profile position. Also, I think you’re right to be wary of her.

Elena: Why? Have you had any bad experiences with her?

Mariah: No, not personally. But she and noah were a couple when they lived in london, and the relationship and its aftermath — it messed him up pretty badly.

Elena: Oh. I had no idea. Although, I mean, I think we’ve all been through some messy breakups, myself included.

[ Laughs ] So I’m not really sure that that’s particularly damning?

Mariah: Well, you are very logical and understanding and willing to give people the benefit of the doubt, which, on one hand, makes it very, very hard to gossip with you, but on the other hand, it means that if you’re getting a bad vibe from somebody, there’s probably something to it.

Tessa: Well, when you say that you don’t trust her, is it because you think that she has designs on nate?

Elena: I think she’s exerting an influence on nate. No, not romantically. I can imagine him cheating on me with her.

Mariah: Yeah, I would certainly hope not. After everything he had to do to get you back? No, he should feel that he’s lucky to be with you and even to have another chance at all.

Elena: Yeah. No, I think the thing that’s bothering me is that she seems to be stoking nate’s ambitions, which I think she started when they were first working at chancellor-winters.

Tessa: How do you mean?

Elena: Well, I mean, nate’s always been driven. That’s what made him such a brilliant surgeon. But ever since he joined the corporate world, that drive for success has suddenly warped into this lust for power. And he’s done some things he’s not proud of. So he made the decision to get back to who he is at his core and to focus on behaving ethically as much as being a success.

Mariah: And your fear is that his new coo is going to bring him back to the dark side.

Victoria: Hi. You wanted to talk?

Nate: Uh, yes. I’ve been pursuing something. It’s in the early stages, but i thought I should fill you in.

Victoria: Shoot.

Nate: Daniel romalotti has designed a video game that chancellor-winters has been developing.

Victoria: Ah. Well, I’m afraid that’s an industry that I’m not particularly well versed in.

Nate: Suffice it to say, chancellor-winters intended to use his concept to launch an entire gaming platform called omega sphere.

Victoria: Ooh. Well, that sounds impressive. But, uh, you used past tense. “Chancellor winters intended to use it.”

Nate: I’ve heard rumblings of more internal problems over there.

Victoria: Really?

Nate: Nothing too specific at this point, just some hints of instability. But I see potential for great opportunity.

Victoria: Look, I appreciate your instinct, but are you sure that you want to provoke your family, trying to steal this project away from them? You’ve already been through so much with them.

Nate: It’s business, not personal. If I may quote from the master.

Victoria: Point taken. But you know I had to ask.

Nate: Look, I’m not talking about an end run here, nothing to get their lawyers riled up. I just happened to get a glimpse at how serious their problems are after phyllis asked me for a meeting.

Victoria: Phyllis?

Nate: She’s daniel’s technical director.

Victoria: Ah.

Nate: She wanted to gauge our interest, should they lose their corporate backing. We had an intriguing discussion. Lily found out about it afterwards and wasn’t too happy.

Victoria: I can imagine.

Nate: She got all territorial on me, made it clear that she and daniel had a deal in writing. But if that falls through, i want to be the first one to grab this and run with it. It would be a great fit at newman media. It has potential for massive growth. Now, if you want me to fill you in on the details —

Victoria: Oh, no, there’s — there’s no need for that. Actually, just put something in a memo. I trust your instincts. And if the opportunity arises to acquire, um…

Nate: Omega sphere.

Victoria: Right. You have my full support.

Nate: Good. Just so you know, there is one wrinkle.

Phyllis: Listen, I’m gonna tell you something. Uh, please keep it to yourself. Things haven’t been going that well for daniel. Uh, his art career stalled in georgia. The commissions weren’t coming in, you know? Therefore, money wasn’t coming in. Uh, the business just fell apart. It just wasn’t happening anymore.

Lauren: That must have been so rough on him.

Phyllis: Yeah. Yeah. I didn’t even know about it. But he said, um, he took out his frustrations on heather and he felt like he wasn’t holding up his end of the marriage, right? And things got more tense. I guess they were arguing a lot. And so heather decided to take lucy and leave…

[Voice breaking] And, um, go to portugal.

Michael: I am surprised that heather would go to such an extreme.

Phyllis: Well…

Michael: Oh.

Phyllis: According to daniel, he pushed heather away. That’s according to daniel.

[ Stammers ]

[ Voice breaking ] It’s really raw right now. You know, he’s raw and he’s not doing well. And this project is a way for him to pull himself out, right? So, it means so much to him. Therefore, it means a lot to me. But he’s just finally pulling himself out of the mud. And, you know, he feels like this way, he can — he can make it right by heather and… oh. I can solve this.

to your day…

Phyllis: Oh, my gosh, heather is the key.

Lauren: I don’t like where this is going.

Michael: Neither do I.

Phyllis: No, no, no, no, no. Just — just hear me out. Hear me out. So, if I go to heather and i convince her that she should give daniel another chance, i really do believe I can help him out of this situa– I don’t believe — how come I didn’t think of this before?

Lauren: Are you even listening to yourself? The whole reason that daniel lost it on you is because you didn’t honor his boundaries. I mean, in fact, you went crashing straight through them. You disrespected him, you decided that you knew best, and you over-functioned.

Michael: [ Chuckles ] Good on you. Fancy word for “meddling.”

Lauren: Yeah, you took everything into your own hands. You pitched his business to another company without informing him. You cut him out of the whole process. He had literally no say on his own project. Of course he’s gonna be royally pissed off at you and lash out. Honestly, I would, too.

Michael: And now you’re talking about doing it in his personal life.

Phyllis: I don’t consider me going to heather and telling her how great daniel is doing right now and how he’s changed his life around would be considered meddling.

Michael: [ Sighs ]

Lauren: [ Sighs ] You know, you have a beautiful heart. And I completely understand why you’d want to do this.

Michael: [ Chuckling ] I don’t because it is gonna backfire spectacularly.

Lauren: So I think that you should call heather once. And if she does not pick up and she doesn’t respond to your voicemail, please, please walk away from this.

Summer: Basically, my grandpa wants to drag kyle into this scheme to mess with adam’s life.

Daniel: Mm. For his own good, of course.

Summer: Exactly! That’s how he sees it, only it’s really not funny. But my grandpa has convinced himself that he can screw up what adam has going at jabot, have some epic opportunity lined up for him at newman, and then adam will just come running back into the family’s open arms.

Daniel: [ Sighs ] Yeah, I would say it’s unbelievable, but look at our mom living in her own alternative reality.

Summer: They never learn.

Daniel: [ Laughs ]

Summer: Grandpa doesn’t realize that this isn’t gonna work out, just like every other time he’s tried to manipulate adam. But he’s just gonna do what he wants to do. And kyle — kyle hates that adam is working at jabot.

Daniel: Well, what’d kyle say?

Summer: He was considering it at first and then I laid out all the ways that it could go wrong and he claimed that he wanted no part of it.

Daniel: Hmm.

Kyle: Without sharing too much company information, here are my notes on adam’s performance. Based on what I’ve seen of his output so far and the feedback from jabot’s management team, the effort he’s putting forth is mediocre at best. He started strong and then quickly slid, and now he’s treading water more than anything. Nothing egregious, but hardly the caliber of work I would expect from a guy at his level.

Victor: Well, kyle… thank you for the information. Now let’s see how we can take advantage of that. (Vo) yoplait has something for everything you do.

Summer: Kyle told me that he wasn’t gonna take part in my grandpa’s scheme, and I — i know he hates the idea getting swept up into newman family drama. I mean, he’s got enough of that already with his mother and ours.

Daniel: Mm. Yeah. Mom has been a little out of control lately. She went behind my back. She — she started making decisions about my project without telling me. And then she says, oh, you know, it’s to protect my interests. I finally lost it with her.

Summer: What took you so long?

Daniel: [ Chuckles ] I don’t know. I had to tell her. You know, I was like, “we are not partners. You are my employee. You work for me.” Then I, uh — then I might have mentioned that I was wondering if it had ever been a good idea to hire her in the first place.

Summer: I mean, I don’t blame you. It’s not fair for her to put you in that position.

Daniel: She did the same thing to you.

Summer: I know, and I hate that I had to let her go. I mean, she was doing great work at marchetti, but she just would not let up. And kyle and I couldn’t take it anymore. Her feud with diane — it was just too big of a distraction.

Daniel: [ Chuckles ] Tell me about it.

Summer: I know that firing her was the right move, but — i got to be honest — I am a little worried at how rattled she’s been since diane came back to town.

Daniel: Well, I’m just hoping this most recent confrontation makes her take a good, long, hard look at her recent behavior, and, you know, maybe she’ll rein it in. I didn’t say I was holding my breath.

[ Breathes deeply ]

Phyllis: Guys, um, i appreciate the feedback. You know I do. I am under no illusion that a simple phone call can take away all the pain that daniel and his family have been through — okay? — And fix everything. I got it.

Lauren: Alright. Good. I’m glad you realize that.

Michael: Okay. Okay. What aren’t you telling us? Because I know that look. There’s more to this.

Lauren: Is michael right?

Michael: I think I know. You’re not just making a phone call.

Phyllis: No. This is a conversation that needs to be in person. I am going to portugal, and I’m going to talk to heather and lucy face-to-face.

Mariah: Not that you’re asking for my advice.

Elena: No, please. I would love to hear your take on this.

Mariah: I think that you should be discussing this with nate, openly and honestly, you know, like good partners do.

Elena: Which is how we got out of the rough patch that we just went through, when things were so contentious with devon and lily.

[ Sighs ] It took a lot of energy, but nate and I are finally on the right track. And I trusted that the changes he talked about making would be real and lasting.

Tessa: But now you’re having some doubts because of this woman who’s a bad influence.

Elena: Pretty much. So now I am reluctant to share my fears with nate again.

Mariah: Well, you shouldn’t be, not if the issues are still there.

Elena: [ Sighs ] What worries me about audra is i can tell that she thinks business is all about winning. And that was the mind-set that nate had when he was working with chancellor-winters. When he got this new job, I was really hoping that it would be a fresh start. He didn’t have to deal with the conflict of working with his family any more. But I’m starting to see that his drive for power — I don’t think it ever really went away. And given the chance, I think it’s only gonna get worse.

Victoria: A wrinkle, huh? Well, I guess they make life interesting.

Nate: Turns out there’s someone else in the mix. Tucker. He’s snooping around omega sphere, too. Not that I can’t outmaneuver him.

Victoria: Well, I appreciate your confidence, but —

Nate: In fact, I’ve already devised a strategy.

Victoria: Well, that’s what I like to hear. But you don’t need to worry about tucker mccall. I’m gonna take care of him myself very soon.

Nick: Dad, I know you don’t like sally, and I know you like that I’m with her even less. But does that give you a right to intervene?

Victor: Explain yourself, son.

Nick: Sally had a huge opportunity with chancellor-winters to pitch her new idea, but when she and chloe got to L.A., Jill wouldn’t even take the meeting.

Victor: Stuff happens, you know?

Nick: Did you speak with jill and convince her to rip this away from sally? Yes or no?

[ Dramatic music ]

Bill: Is that what you’re saying, katie? If I see to it that sheila goes back to prison and pays for her crimes, there could be a chance for us? We could be a family again?

Steffy: It’s so hard to comprehend. Bill falling for sheila, falling for her lies.

Hope: Well, let’s not pretend, you know, like he hasn’t made bad decisions in the past. But I mean, you’re right. I mean, this– this is beyond.

Steffy: Blackmailing us to keep sheila free. Bill’s totally fine with just a– a murderer out there. Puts us all in danger. He doesn’t seem to care about us.

Charlotte: Steffy? Oh, excuse me. I hope I’m not interrupting. I just wanted to let you know that the eye on fashion interview was postponed. But I’ll update you as soon as it’s rescheduled.

Steffy: Great. Thank you, charlotte. But honestly, I don’t know if I’m gonna wanna reschedule. I don’t think I wanna give spencer publications that much publicity.

Taylor: Knock, knock.

Steffy: Mom, hey.

Taylor: Hi.

Steffy: You remember charlotte?

Taylor: Oh, hi, charlotte. Yes, of course. Forrester’s new up-and-coming exec.

Charlotte: Well, I wouldn’t say that.

Taylor: Oh. See, and she’s modest too. You throw in a sense of humor, they’ll never let you go.

Steffy: Hey, you gotta laugh. Especially these days.

Taylor: Yeah. Well, with sheila, on the loose happy moments are few and far between.

Charlotte: I really feel for you, steffy. I mean, your whole family. Knowing that justice wasn’t served, it makes no sense. How is it possible that sheila carter isn’t spending the rest of her life behind bars?

Steffy: None of us are happy about it, that’s for sure.

Charlotte: Have you thought about maybe bringing a civil suit against her? There’s gotta be some way to make her pay for what she did.

Steffy: I don’t know if that’s in my best interest.

Charlotte: Well, my dad’s a lawyer. I’d be happy to put you in touch. You know, if you ever change your mind. I mean, anyone who puts a bullet inside of another human being should not be walking around free. Oh, it’s the reporter. Reschedule or cancel?

Steffy: Reschedule.

Charlotte: You’ve got it. Nice to see you again, dr. Hayes.

Taylor: Yeah, you too. Thanks. Anybody that puts a bullet in another human–

Steffy: Do not go there, mom. Do not.

Taylor: No, I’m fixing this. I’m– I’m fixing this. I’m turning myself in.

Steffy: We will figure out another way, okay?

Taylor: Nope.

Hope: Someone needs to get through to bill and get him to change his mind. That– that is what needs to happen.

Steffy: Right. We just have to figure out how.

Bill: Could there be a chance for us katie? Sheila goes back to prison and we could be a family again?

Katie: Yes. Yes. You, me, and will I want us to be close. I– I want us to be a family and for us to put our son’s happiness first, his wellbeing. And if sheila is in prison, then of course that’s possible. But as far as you and me, I–

Bill: You won’t even entertain the idea.

Sheila: Hello, katie. This is surprising. Didn’t think we were expecting any company. Did you offer her any– any tea? And we have some cake leftover as well.

Katie: That’s okay. I’m good.

Sheila: You sure? It’s really no trouble.

Katie: I get it, sheila. I get it. You’re lady of the house now.

Sheila: Yeah. I certainly am.

Introducing astepro allergy.

Taylor: I’m the only one who can put an end to this. I– I’m just gonna go to the police.

Steffy: All that guarantees you, mom, is you getting locked up? Not sheila.

Hope: Steffy has a point. I mean, with bill’s influence, he– he’ll probably find a way to keep sheila out of jail.

Steffy: He’ll just bribe another judge and another judge if he has to.

Hope: Exactly. Taylor, I– I don’t think it’s worth it. I– I really don’T.

Taylor: Okay, but appealing to bill isn’t working, so.

Hope: Not yet, but maybe eventually.

Taylor: Eventually. Eventually, after sheila hurts someone that we love. God, I’m so mad at myself. All of this, all of this is happening because I lost control that night. Because of what I did back then, sheila’s free.

Steffy: Come here.

Katie: I wouldn’t get too comfortable around here, sheila, because bill is going to catch on to what you’re doing.

Sheila: What I’m– I’m doing. I– I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Katie: You’re using him.

Sheila: For love and companionship, sure. Then, I guess we’re using each other.

Katie: You don’t love him. You love that you’ve brainwashed him into keeping you out of prison.

Sheila: You don’t know what I’m feeling.

Katie: You feel? Really? Like a normal human being feels? Because I don’t think so.

Sheila: Why is it everyone thinks they can talk to me like this? Such horrible, vicious attacks.

Katie: It’s not an attack if it’s the truth. It’s just a fact. You have tried to kill people we love. You are horrible and vicious. You put a bullet in your son. You left him to die.

Sheila: I don’t wanna argue– I don’t wanna argue about this! And I’m really tired of defending myself to people like you.

Katie: Because it’s indefensible. There’s no defense. None.

Sheila: God I feel terrible for the pain that I caused them.

Katie: Oh, okay.

Sheila: It’s a pain that I– I’ve never had before in my life, to know that I was responsible for hurting my own son.

Katie: Yeah, but you still did it. You still left him to die in that alley. You didn’t call for help. And this is the woman that we’re supposed to trust with our child? Really, bill? She solves her problems by shooting people. I don’t know how you trust her with yourself.

Sheila: It’s because he knows I’m the one person that won’t hurt him. Just like he won’t hurt me.

Katie: You almost killed your child, but bill’s safe with you? Yeah, sure.

Sheila: If you ever truly understood him, you’d see how safe he finally is. He’s with a woman that can stand next to him. You wouldn’t understand that, would you? Because you never did. You never could appreciate the man that he truly is. It scares you doesn’t it, katie? The sword that he wears around his neck, how it symbolizes power and protections, those are things that you never wanted him to have. How this symbol defines him. And I admire that. Now, for the first time in our lives, bill and i have found our true partners because I accept and I admire him for the man he is just as he does me.

Katie: A sociopath that puts everyone around her in danger. You embrace this? You accept it? Well, I can’T. I won’T. I won’t accept it for you or for me or for our son. She has somehow convinced you that your kindred spirits, that you deserve each other. But she’s wrong because you’re nothing like her. I don’t know how she’s managed it, but she’s convinced you to blackmail steffy and finn. But you, you can make that right. You can undo it, and I believe you will. And I won’t give up on you. You hear me? I will fight for you. I will fight to bring you back to us. I will fight for you to see reality. And I don’t give up. You know that. I don’t care how long it takes. I won’t lose you. I won’t lose the father of my son to sheila carter. Listen, I’m done settling. Because this is my secret.

Bill: You’re upset.

Sheila: No, it’s– it’s just–

Bill: You can tell me. You don’t have to hide anything.

Sheila: It’s really hard for me to see you two together. She’s your ex-wife. You share a son. I just can’t help wonder if she were to give you another chance.

Bill: You overheard katie and me talking, didn’t you? About being a family again. I really need you to hear me. Did I get caught up in the memories? Sure, I did. I miss the family we were. It’s probably more accurate to see the family we were trying to be. It wasn’t sustainable. Not like this. Not like us. I appreciate you, sheila. You came into my life when I needed you most. I’m committed to you. You don’t have to question that.

Sheila: Thank you. Oh, it means so much for me to hear you say that. Guess I just have to remind myself that the bad outweigh the good. The way she treated you, the way she tried to change you. Walking out on your time and time again. I can see why you finally felt it was time to move on to someone else. Everyone deserves to be fully accepted for who they are. Even the two of us.

Taylor: You didn’t have to leave work.

Steffy: Well, it’s not like I can speak freely at the office.

Taylor: Because your mom almost killing someone isn’t really water cooler talk, right? Are the kids here?

Steffy: They’re– they’re out. They’re out with amelia. They’re safe. Have I talked to you off the ledge? You’re not still thinking about turning yourself in, are you?

Taylor: Oh, god. Steffy, this– this isn’t just about sheila going to prison.

Steffy: What do you mean?

Taylor: Even if bill wasn’t blackmailing us, I’d– I’d still be holding this terrible secret. I should have never gotten away with this.

Steffy: Mom, you had no idea that you were gonna go over to bill’s house and harm him.

Taylor: Yeah, but I did. I shot him in the back. He didn’t even do what I thought he did.

Steffy: Hey, you can’t change what happened.

Taylor: No, I can’t stop thinking about it. I can’t sleep. I– I am tossing and turning. My thoughts or ruminating.

Steffy: Mom. Mom. Go upstairs. Lie down. Get some rest. Just close your eyes and relax. You need to take care of yourself, okay?

Taylor: Yeah. Okay.

Steffy: We’re gonna get through to bill. Sheila’s going to prison, not you.

Bill: Your mother tried

to kill me, not liam.

She shot me in the back

and put me in the hospital.

[ Knock on the door ]

Steffy: Katie.

Katie: Hi.

Steffy: What is– what’s going on?

Katie: I just came from bill’S. Seeing the hold that sheila has on him, knowing what it means for all of us, especially my son, I can’t let it go on. I need to know what he has on you.

Steffy: Excuse me?

Katie: I need to know why you and finn are not testifying against her. If I’m gonna get bill away from sheila, I’ve got to know what’s going on. And I need you to tell me right now. Postmenopausal women with hr+ her2-

Sheila: You know, you always put on such a brave, strong front, such bravado. But I– I know that you hurt just like everyone else. Your heart breaks too. Other people seem to forget that about you, but I never will. Now, to think that taylor shot you in this very room in the back, you had no chance to defend yourself. It’s too bad you’re holier than thou ex-wife doesn’t know about that. Maybe then she would shut up a bit, if she knew that we weren’t the only ones that did something bad.

Steffy: It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter what bill has on me, okay?

Katie: Of course, it matters. If it’s keeping you from testifying against sheila. Steffy, you’ve gotta help me here. I was just with bill. He is so unlike himself. He is a shell of himself. I’m scared.

Steffy: I am too. For many reasons.

Katie: The bill I know, the bill I married never would’ve done anything like this. He would never have put his grandchildren, his children in danger. Steffy, please. I need to know what’s going on. Sheila shot your husband, her own son. Then she turned the gun on you and left you both to die in that alley. She shot your mother. She shot your grandmother. Are you really okay with her not being in prison?

Steffy: I’m not. I’m not okay with it. I want sheila in prison for the rest of her life.

Katie: Then you can do something about it. You don’t have to give into bill. Why? Why didn’t you give a statement to the judge?

Steffy: It’s complicated.

Katie: It’s not that complicated. Sheila belongs in prison. What does bill have on you? What is he blackmailing you with?

Taylor: It’s me.

Steffy: Mom, no.

Taylor: It’s because of me. I shot him.

[ Voice breaks ] I’m the one who shot bill.

Katie: I don’t–

why are you smiling? Did you know that when you sleep, your nose wrinkles just a little bit? It does not. No, it does. It does. It does. I like it. You’re being ridiculous. Yeah, maybe. Ridiculously happy. Good morning. Yeah, it is. Give me the latest. Have they determined the cause of the flooding? Pierre: A water main

underneath the building burst.

[ Sighs ] Well, I am perfectly aware the pipes are old, but it is inconceivable they should just happen to burst on the very night that valentin and anna come to retrieve my guest. Have they found my son?

Not yet, or ms. Devane or ms. Coe,

for that matter. You do realize that’s not the answer I was looking for? What’s the holdup? A section of the adjoining catacombs collapsed. The area is too unstable. I couldn’t care less how dangerous it is. I want a team down there right now looking for my son.

[ Button clicks ]

[ Sighs ]

I hope I wasn’t too much of a disappointment. I was wondering if you would like to join me for dinner. You actually were very, very good, and I was actually very impressed. But what about that belly and your beard? What about them? Mmm. You ready for another round?

[ Laughs ] Oop. My dear, sweet lucy, where are you?

[ Elevator bell dings ] You have been ignoring my calls, which I do not appreciate. What the hell — tell them I’ll pay triple the rate. Because my son might be trapped in those catacombs. He could be injured. Just find him. Alexis. Victor. Everything okay? Oh, just wonderful. Are you having breakfast with your daughters here? I’d love to see them. You never give up, do you? Well, family is worth every effort. Ah. Well, I’m sorry to disappoint you, but I’m here to see the mayor, not my children. Oh, well, that’s a pity. Will you excuse me? So, how’s everything going with nikolas? Oh, I assume you’re referring to my utter and total disappointment in my nephew? Fathering esme’s child is just… so unseemly? Yes. So I guess things are a little tense at wyndemere? Oh, they would be, but I’ve taken a suite here at the metro court. Not that that has anything to do with a conflict with nikolas. Oh, but why? Oh, I’d have thought my nephew would have told you. He’s handed spoon island over to ava as part of the divorce settlement. Oh, I completely forgot. Britt’s memorial is today, isn’t it? At general hospital? Yeah. We’re honoring her work as co-chief of staff. You know, I think she would really like it. Practicing medicine was really important to her. It showed. How are you holding up? I’m fine. You know, my job right now is to be strong for aunt liesl, and that’s what I’m going to do. I was referring to the willow situation. We haven’t had a chance to talk about that yet. I still can’t believe it. Willow is your daughter? A fact I would never know if that bitch carly had gotten her way.

[ Monitors beeping ] Hey. Morning. Is it morning? It’s always so hard to tell in here. Did you get any sleep? Uh, yeah, a few hours.

[ Inhales sharply ] Oh, I’m sorry. Did I hurt you? No, no, no. I don’t mind the pain. Just promise you won’t let go. I promise. When a cold comes on strong, knock it out with vicks dayquil severe. Just one dose starts to relieve 9 of your worst cold and flu symptoms. To help take you from 9 to none. Power through with vicks dayquil severe. What carly did was unconscionable. First it was nelle, now it’s willow. Mm, to be fair, though, carly didn’t know nelle was your daughter until after she had died. And that makes it okay? No, of course not, and I’m not defending her. Well, I should hope not, ava. Because there is no defense. Of course, saint carly will be forgiven because she was protecting willow from evil me, who no one would ever want as a mother. And now that I’m not a bone marrow match, there’s no foul, no harm. Nina — what? We know that that is what carly is going to say, ava. And everyone, people will buy it. You just wait and see, okay? But I’m going to tell you this. I don’t care if the whole world forgives carly. I’m not, ever. And I am not going to rest until that woman pays for what she did to me. It is so incredible being alone with you. Do you have any idea how hard it is to pretend that we’re just friends? Really? ‘Cause I thought it was easy. Oh, do you, now? Yeah, yeah. I mean, like, I would see you across the room and I would say, “oh, yeah, there’s drew. Whatever.” Okay, that’s how it is, huh?

[ Laughs ] Alright. You know I’m kidding. God. When I would see you across the room when we were at the quartermaines’ for christmas, you have no idea how bad I wanted to come across the room and just kiss you. Yeah? Yeah. Well, if you’re feeling the urge. Thank you… for sticking with me. You had every reason to bail. I’m just really glad you didn’T. I am, too. Any regrets? Except the fact that we can’t go public? Oh, gosh. No. It’s so frustrating, because the aurora-elq merger didn’t even happen, so I don’t know why there’s an issue with insider trading. Yeah. Well, I mean, that helps on some level, I guess, but somebody could still report it to the sec, and if that happens, then…

[ Sighs ] Yeah. Can we talk about something else? Yeah, please. You start. Okay. I love waking up with you. I love waking up with you. Anything else you like doing with me? Mm, I can think of a few things. Yeah? Tell me more. I’d rather show you. How are we doing in here? Willow’s in some pain. Is there any way we can up her meds? Michael, no. I don’t want that. You’re uncomfortable. If I have more, I’ll just want to sleep, and I refuse to waste… we’re — we’re ready to discuss treatment now that we know that nina isn’t a viable bone marrow match. The donor registry could still come through. Right, but we can’t count on that, though. I wouldn’t advise it. So what now? There is another option. Please, let’s hear it. As you know, when bone marrow is taken from a donor, stem cells are harvested, and your body can use those healthy stem cells to fight leukemia. But bone marrow isn’t the only source. You can also find stem cells in cord blood from the umbilical cord and placenta. If you’re talking about taking something away from the baby to help me, the answer is no. Willow, willow, if there is an option that can save both you and our daughter, please just hear the doctor out. I find it hard to believe that nikolas would give up wyndemere. Oh, I don’t know. Perhaps he felt he owed it to ava after sleeping with his son’s ex-girlfriend. Well, when you put it that way. It still seems really out of character for my nephew. I hope you’re happy. I don’t know, am I? You’ve gone too far this time. Too far! I’m sorry. What on earth are you talking about? I was just contacted by the paris authorities. Valentin is dead.

What did you just say? Valentin is dead? Laura: I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. A portion of the paris catacombs collapsed last night. Oh, my god. How? Why? I guess they flooded when a water main broke. Rescue efforts are ongoing, but they have already recovered three bodies. Oh. Oh, my god. And one of them has been identified as valentin.

[ Exhales deeply ] What about — what about anna? Wasn’t she with him? Martin told me that he saw them leave ireland together, yes. So is one of the other bodies…? A woman, but not identified yet. I–I can’t believe — I can’t believe valentin is gone. I know. It’s horrible. It’s just horrible. All we can think about is charlotte. She’s going to be so completely devastated. Oh, my god, and robin… well, we don’t know about that yet. We don’t have confirmation on that. As bleak as it may look, there is still the possibility that anna survived somehow. Enough. Is the blindfold really necessary? Clearly, I’m cooperating. I think it’s best for all of us, you included, if you don’t know where we are. Well, mission accomplished.

[ Knocks rhythmically ] Okay. Come in. Come on. Come on. Get over here! It’s so good to see you safe. And breathing. Yes, well, there’s that. Good to see you, love. Thank you. Hello, can I please take this thing off? I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. Marty, marty, marty, marty! Lucy! Oh, marty! Lucy! Oh! Oh! Oh, are you a sight for weary eyes or what? Okay, take it all in. Take it all in. And then kiss me this instant. If you insist. At last, this nightmare is over. Not quite. There’s still the small matter of my death. I want to stay right here forever. Is that too much to ask?

[ Chuckles ] I got to admit, hiding out sounds pretty damn perfect right now. Oh, yes. I don’t want to go back to the real world. You know? Where willow has cancer and wiley might lose his mom and michael — oh, michael. Michael. I promised michael that I would bring wiley to visit willow. I can’t believe he hasn’t texted me. Michael asked you to bring wiley? That’s promising that things are going to be okay between you two. Yeah. Yeah. I’m lucky michael has a big heart.

[ Cellphone rings ] Okay, it’s sonny. I think there’s probably news about nina. Hello? No. Are they sure?

[ Sighs ] Okay. Thanks for calling. Oh, my god. Nina’s not a match? No.

[ Sighs ] I’m so sorry. Oh, my god, willow is so sick. What if they don’t find a donor in time? I mean, I could strangle her for trying to keep my daughter away from me. I mean, who does she think she is? Nina, stop it. No! Ava, are you saying that I don’t have the right to hate her? Of course you do. But carly is not what’s important right now. I’m not gonna let it go. I’m not. I can’T. I can’t let it go. I know. Because it’s easier to be angry with carly than it is to feel the pain and fear of possibly losing another child, isn’t it? Nina, willow is your daughter and she’s sick. She’s very sick. I can’t save her, ava. I can’T. I won’t do anything to jeopardize our baby’s health. I understand. But the baby won’t be affected in any way other than being delivered by c-section a few weeks early. I know. I agreed to have the baby early to prepare for a marrow transplant. But I was never comfortable with it, and I’m still not. I’d prefer that our daughter be born when she’s ready. But I’ve consulted with dr. Navarro, and she’s confirmed that this late in the pregnancy, the risks to your baby are minimal. 99% of babies born at this stage not only survive, but thrive. And after the birth, when the umbilical cord and placenta are no longer serving a purpose, it’s possible to harvest stem cells from the blood. So what is the success rate of this type of transplant? Nothing’s 100%, but it’s the best chance we have. Because the stem cells would be coming from your baby, he only need about half the hla markers to match, which is less than bone marrow stem cells. That’s incredible. In my medical opinion, this is by far your best option. Will you give it a shot?

Do you know how many times I have imagined this? Not nearly as many as I have. Oh, how I have missed thee. Let you count the ways? I don’t think they have numbers that go that high. Oh, please, you two. Get a room, huh? Mm! Oh, robert. That’s an absolutely brilliant idea. Guess what? We actually have a room. Right this way, mr. Grey. Where you lead, I shall follow.

[ Laughing ] I think it’s sweet. Is there any reason that we needed to bring him here? It was vital. Yeah, otherwise, lucy would have driven us crazy. When you called this morning to say that you brought lucy back, I don’t remember the last time I was so relieved. And you, your life as a fugitive is over. Are we forgetting the fact that the pcpd happens to have a videotape of someone looking a lot like you putting a shot into lucy point blank. Okay, well, lucy’ll just say the shooter wasn’t anna. Charges dropped, right? I don’t know that I’m ready to reveal myself just yet. Not since we have gone to the trouble of trying to convince victor that valentin is dead. Look, any plan that puts him six feet under is fine with me. Yeah, I thought you’d like that. Oh, robert. Just stop. You know, you really need to think about this. There are people other than victor that will be very upset. What, that he’s croaked? Yes. Are you willing to have that on your conscience? Who contacted you, and why did they call you and not me? Laura: Because charlotte is valentin’s next of kin. Oh, poor charlotte. How do they know the body’s valentin? Oh, don’t pretend you care. Of course I care. He’s my son! Who you tried to control by threatening his little girl.

[ Sighs ] Charlotte was never in any danger. Oh, face it. You only value family when it works to your advantage! I need to make some calls. I’m just filled with regret — what we missed out on and what could have been. Will you stop talking in the past tense? Willow is not gone. There is still hope.

I was her hope. And now that I’m not a match — see, I was supposed to be the game changer. My bone marrow was supposed to save her life, and… and then she’d forgive me and she’d love me, and…

[ Voice breaking ] But she doesn’t want to be my daughter, ava. She — she doesn’t want anything to do with me. I’ve been there. I know how much that hurts.

[ Inhales shakily ] I can’t breathe. I just feel like the pain is going through my body with every heartbeat. Now I have to go to the hospital and say goodbye to my cousin when I know my daughter is there fighting for her life, and there’s not a damn thing I can do about it. The very worst part. I won’t survive losing her. I won’T. Oh… so what do you think?

[ Door opens ] Is now a good time? Oh, yeah, of course. Yeah, bring him in. Wiley? I’ll give you some time to consider your options. Okay. Mommy, mommy! Whoa! Incoming. Hi, sweet boy. Wiley, I’ll lift you up. Just remember to be careful, okay? Oh, forget careful. I want the biggest, strongest hug I can get get. I’ve missed you so much. I’ve missed you too.

I want to know exactlywhat the paris police know, and I mean down to the last detail. This — this is unacceptable. My son was never supposed to be harmed, and I want answers, and I want them immediately! Victor seemed really shaken up. Did he ever?

[ Chuckles ] Well done, madam mayor. You were very convincing. Yeah. This better work. Laura and alexis know the truth. We brought them in on it. But what about charlotte? I mean, you can’t be okay with letting her believe that you’re dead. There’s a plan in place. Laura knows exactly what to say to charlotte. And if everything has gone according to plan, then laura should have broken the news to victor about now. I’m sure that our illustrious mayor is spot on the target and will deliver on schedule.

[ Chuckles ] What? You know, sometimes I just can’t believe it. Little laura on the run from frank smith, holding the cassadines at bay with a machine gun. And here we are, the epitome of law and order. Look who’s talking, mr. District attorney. Yeah. My, how the mighty have fallen. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Lucky, you swear to me you’re alright? Mm-hmm? I’m fine. I’m okay. Victor’s goons, they didn’t hurt you, they didn’t touch you in any way? Mnh-mnh. Don’t I feel alright? You… you… you feel… you feel incredible. Still, still, it had to be awful, being victor’s prisoner. Okay, yeah. I mean, I did spend every minute of every hour of every day praying to get out of there, and I did manage to concoct a few escape plans. That’s my girl. I’ll bet you did. But actually, surprisingly, they treated me physically okay. Well, except for the part where I was chained in the basement. I mean, literally chained. I mean, chain chains. I think it was all part of that plan to get anna and valent– I swear to you, I could just kill that smug son of a bitch. I know. Mm. Okay, to tell you the truth, the worst part? The catacombs! I actually had to swim through the catacombs, and it was disgusting and icky. Okay, deep breath.

[ Breathes deeply ] That is all in the past, and I am back and I’m home safe with you. Yeah.

[ Laughs ] Yes, you are. And I thank god for that. But I’m not kidding — watching you get shot — that — that drone footage… I know. You know, rubber bullets, they are really not that rubbery. It’s not a joke. It’s not funny. But they hurt! That was one of the worst moments of my life. My poor baby. I am so sorry you had to go through all of this. Is it is just me, or does this not feel real? It’s real, and I know just how I can convince you it’s so. Oh, I’ll just bet you do.

[ Laughs ] You evil, evil —

[ Laughs ] Ava: Oh, nina. You have to hold on to hope. Is there any? Course there is. As long as willow is alive, so is the chance to reconcile. Well, if she beats this cancer, the possibilities of that are remote. Look at it this way. Your feelings changed as soon as you learned that willow is your daughter, yes? You immediately saw her in a different light. Yeah, but it wasn’t the case for willow, and she’s made that abundantly clear. Still early days, nina. I tried to remember the first time that I saw willow, and I don’t know if it might have been the park or the classroom when she was just ms. Tait and she was giving charlotte a hard time. I couldn’t stand her. Because you thought she was picking on your kid. Yeah. Turns out that she was my kid, too. It makes sense that we didn’t get along. She’s a lot like me, never running from a fight. Willow’s always been really strong. Now it’s your turn. Don’t let her push you away. What do you suggest that I do? You want me to force myself into her hospital room? That might be going a little bit too far. Ava, you’re a really good friend. No giving up. No giving up. That’s more like it. Cream cheese or butter? Both. You had cream cheese

and butter on your bagel? We cut it in half. Yeah. He had one of each. Oh, now, that’s smart, wiley. That way you don’t have to choose. When are you coming home? I’m not exactly sure. But listen, the second the doctors tell me that I can, I’m going to run all the way to the gatehouse. In your hospital gown? I have to. I’d like to see that. Yeah, me, too. Hey, wiley. Here. Let’s give mommy your card that you made her. For me?

[ Laughs ] Aww. Oh. [ Crying ] You didn’t make this. Yes, I did. I — this — these pictures are amazing. I mean, they must have been drawn by a professional artist. Mommy, I’m the artist. Well, um… thank you. Thank you so much. I love it. I am going to put it right here next to my pillow, so that way, it’s the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning.

[ Door closes ] Thank you for bringing wiley. Seeing willow’s face light up when she saw him, you know, that’s everything. Yeah. It obviously means the world to her. Meant the world to me that you asked. Hope this means that we’re okay. We’re — we’re okay. Or at least we will be eventually. What did doctor randolph have to say? It was actually good news. There may be a way to save willow.

I was really relievedto get your call this morning, because I was starting to lose hope. Yes, I know. I was, too. But it is absolutely true, anna, valentin, and lucy, safe and back to the U.S. Good. Alright, so do you think valentin’s supposed death will survive and hold up under victor’s scrutiny? I think so, at least in the short term. And by the way, thank you for your help on that. Well, the invader will print the official story, that the french authorities say that valentin was caught in an underground flood in paris. He’s been declared dead. Excellent. Alright. I should get going. Britt westbourne’s memorial is going to start very soon. I’m so sorry. What happened to her, it’s really tragic. Yes, but she did die a hero. If only all of us could say the same. So we’re good? I got it from here. Thank you. Okay, I-I just — I have to tell you something. You know, it’s true what they say, when you think it’s over, your life flashes before your eyes. Must have taken a while.

[ Gasps, laughs ] No, I — hey! That’s not what I meant. Listen, you’re the definition of ageless beauty. No, I just was thinking that, you know, my lucy, there’s a woman who’s lived one heck of a life. She sure has. And, you know, I love that about you. You live. You live each day to the fullest and then some. Okay, you know what my last conscious thought was before I hit that water? No. I just thought I didn’t want it to be over. And you have a lot to do with that, you know? Do I? I just — I just feel like I have so much I want to do and so much life left to live, and I would kind of like it if you would do it with me, be by my side? Thank you for coming back to me. Anytime. I mean it. I don’t know what I would have done if you hadn’T. Well, you know I would never, ever let victor cassadine get the best to me. Never. Thank you. Have you heard from holly? No, but I don’t expect to, at least not till she finds ethan. And then what about those pieces of the ice princess that victor was looking for? Victor thinks that that was destroyed in the explosion. Oh, god. It’s happening, robert. We are getting closer and closer to victor paying for what he did to luke. Yeah. It’s good to have the gang back together, isn’t it? Oh, yeah. Am I part of the gang? You did okay in paris. Managed to not slow anna down. That’s high praise. How about this? As long as anna trusts you, I will give you the benefit of the doubt, but the second you step out of line… message received. Michael, this is incredible. It’s the answer we’ve been waiting for. I wouldn’t get too excited. Willow hasn’t agreed to it yet. Why wouldn’t she? You’ve seen how protective she is over the baby. I’m just afraid she’s gonna say no. Oh, come on, michael. That’s insane. We have to convince her to do this. I’ll do my best, mom, but ultimately, it’s willow’s decision.

[ Sighs ] Okay, baby, it’s time to come out. We’re ready for you. Wiley’s right. It’s time. Really? We’d better call dr. Navarro. We’re having a baby. Yay!

[ Crying ] I love you. I love you, too. You excited? Yeah? [ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ] Victor, I’m sorry to intrude. Have you been able to find out anything? Ah, not yet. It’s absolutely unfathomable that valentin is gone. We got off to a rocky start, but we ended up in a good place. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry for your loss. Oh, don’t be. Screw these reports. I refuse to accept my son’s dead. Thank you, laura. I will pass along that update. Talk to you soon. What? Victor bought it. Oh.

[ Gasps ] Oh, that’s great. We finally have him off balance. Yeah. So what’s the next part of the plan? We exploit victor’s guilt. Maybe he will admit to something in his grief-stricken state. Ramp up the pressure? Big time. Yeah. Ideas? Don’t worry. I have plenty. Carly, hey. Hey. What is it? Did willow have a setback? No. I mean, it’s just the opposite. I think willow’s gonna be okay. Really? Really. That’s incredible. It’s incredible! I want nikolas out of wyndemere by tomorrow.

[ Chuckles ] No, no, no. This is not a negotiation, demetrius. The house is mine. I want him out. Good. No, no, I don’t — I don’t plan on moving in right away. I’m — I’m needed here, for the time being. I’ll have dr. Randolph paged right away. Thank you. Do you have any apple juice? Wiley. Sorry about that. It’s no problem. You know what? I think we can scrounge up some juice. What does “scrounge” mean? Well, come on, let’s find out.

[ Door opens, closes ] So you really mean it? You’ll go through with the cord blood transplant? Yes. I’m going to trust the doctors that our daughter won’t be hurt. She won’T. She won’T. She’s strong, just like her mother. I can’t wait to meet her. Neither can I. And someday, we get to tell her how she saved her mother’s life.

[ Dramatic music]

Hope: Look, I’m still upset with thomas. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to trust him again.

Steffy: Not personally. But would you be able to trust him with your line?

Hope: Well maybe I have to. You know, maybe hope for the future does need him.

[ Elevator dinging ]

Steffy: What are you suggesting? Have you actually thought this through? Could you really work with thomas again?

Sheila: Finn! Sweetheart, hi!

Finn: Don’t with the “hey sweetheart”. All right, that is not what we’re doing here. Ever.

Sheila: It’s just really good to see, you.

Finn: I wish I could say the same. But who knows? Maybe someday.

Sheila: Okay, really?

Finn: Sure. The day I see you behind bars.

Sheila: I love you so much, bill. I’m yours for life.

[ Door unlatching ]

Katie: The guard said you were up here alone. Does that mean you’ve kicked sheila out? Suppose that was too much to hope for. I’m here because I care about you, bill. And I’m worried about you. More worried than I’ve ever been.

Paris: Back so soon?

Thomas: Yeah, I didn’t want to get caught listening in.

Paris: Any news? Are they letting you design again?

Thomas: It’s too soon to say, but I think there might be a chance.

Paris: Yeah?

Thomas: I mean, I can feel it. I think I might actually be back on hope for the future. Possibly as soon as today.

Steffy: You’re worried about your line. Frankly, I am too. But is it worth lobbying for thomas to return?

Hope: That’s not what I’m doing. I– I’m just trying to look at all the options, not only for the good of my line, but also for the company. Now, if we were to consider letting thomas work remotely so he didn’t have to come on site–

Steffy: On site or not, think about everything thomas has done.

Hope: No, I know, I just– I’m thinking out loud.

Steffy: Look, hope for the future is important to you. But is it worth compromising your values? Because forcing yourself to work with thomas? That’s exactly what it feels like you’d be doing.

Sheila: All right. That was hard for me to hear. But I understand it. Does it upset you to run into me here?

Finn: No, this was no accident. Sheila, I knew you were here. I got word from a friend who spotted you. I dropped what I was doing and I rushed right over.

Sheila: To come see your mother.

Finn: No, to tell you, in no uncertain terms, that you will never have anything to do with me and my family.

Bill: You don’t have to worry about me.

Katie: Well, I must admit it’s a new feeling for me. Being worried about you. I’ve never felt that way before. You’ve always been so self-assured, so… in control of every situation, at least that’s how it appeared. But now, you and sheila. I’m frightened for you, bill. I’m frightened for our son and I am here to do whatever it takes to get through to you. To save you from this unhealthy, dangerous situation. Some people are born to hustle.

Paris: So this could really be happening.

Thomas: Excited?

Paris: Well, I know how much this means to you and I know how sorry you are for what you did. And, come on, there is no line without your designs. Hope’s vision can only go so far and she clearly knows that or she wouldn’t be considering putting you back on.

Thomas: I like the way you think.

Charlie: You are not supposed to be in the building, thomas. Orders from the head honcho.

Thomas: Uh, orders changed. Steffy’s actually–

Charlie: Not that head honcho, the other head honcho. Your father. And until I hear otherwise, you’re not welcome.

Thomas: My name is on the side of the building. I think that gives me certain rights–

Charlie: You know, your name might be on the side of the building, but if you don’t do what I say, your name is gonna be on an orange jumpsuit, mr. Forrester. Now am-scray. Pronto.

Steffy: Think about it. My dad and your mom aren’t together because of what thomas did. He framed brooke. Made it seem that like she called cps on him. You’re thinking that is someone you might want to work with again? Okay, let’s say– let’s say thomas does come back and hope for the future is a huge success. Are you honestly gonna feel good about that?

Hope: You do have a point there.

Steffy: Have you talked to your mom about this? Liam? I mean, we both know how he feels about thomas. Think about what this could do to your marriage.

Hope: No, you’re right. You’re right. I– I can’t believe I was even contemplating this. I mean, I– I can’t, I can’t do that. I can’t work with him. Thank you. Thank you, seriously. And, um, I apologize.

Steffy: For what?

Hope: For just… I don’t know, taking up your time with– with all of my concerns about my line when I know you have much, much bigger things on your plate. I mean, what thomas did, his lies and manipulations, I mean that kind of pales in comparison to the threat of sheila.

Sheila: We have an opportunity here for a second chance thanks to bill spencer, so, please, let’s not waste it.

Finn: A second chance?

Sheila: To start over.

Finn: I don’t want to see you. I don’t want to know you’re alive. You just stay away from me, my wife, and our children. Just stay the hell away. =

Bill: You call it unhealthy, dangerous, but you don’t see when it’s just the two of us. The attention she gives me, the affection.

Katie: What I see is a man standing in front of me who is unrecognizable. You’ve been hurt. You feel rejected. I… I understand that. I know what it’s like to feel lonely, maybe better than anyone. But what I don’t understand, what I don’t get is why you can’t see that you’re being played? You are dollar bill spencer and you’re believing all of sheila’s lies.

Bill: What lies has she told? I know all of her sins and she knows mine.

Katie: This is not you, bill. The bill I know, the man I admire, would realize what she’s doing. He would never allow himself to fall for this con. But you don’t see it. And I don’t understand why. Why can’t you see that sheila carter is playing you?

Introducing astepro allergy.

Charlie: One of us isn’t listening and it’s you. You need to go.

Thomas: Right, I’m just waiting on word from–

Charlie: You want me to call back up? I don’t think you want that because ruth is on duty today and ruth is a rottweiler.

Thomas: Uh, charlie, I– I– just let this slide this one time, okay? Steffy is literally about–

Charlie: I got a situation on the executive floor. I’ve got a combatant that is unwilling to leave–

Thomas: Okay, all right, fine, fine, fine. I get it. I’ll leave, I’ll leave. This is ridiculous though.

Charlie: You know, um, following the rules is never ridiculous, my friend.

Thomas: I didn’t want to tell you this, but actually this is a code 519-B. It’s

[ French accent ] “Top secret,” course is french for “top secret”. Shh. Don’t say anything.

Charlie: That’s not a 519-B.

Steffy: Well, there’s one nice thing we can say about thomas. At least he isn’t as bad as sheila.

Hope: I still can’t believe that she’s free, that a judge would let a woman like that go. How are you feeling about all this? Knowing that she was out there somewhere and that your mom is being blackmailed?

Steffy: Can’t say it’s easy. My mother’s future is at stake. Her freedom. It’s all in sheila and bill’s hands.

Sheila: As much as I wish you had more of an open mind about me and what our relationship could be, I– I understand why you’re hesitant.

Finn: I am not being hesitant, sheila. I’m telling you no. It will never happen.

Sheila: We’ll have to see, won’t we? See, you are my son and I am not gonna give up on you. I never give up. With the right amount of patience and confidence, I can accomplish anything that I put my mind to.

Katie: Sheila doesn’t know how to love. Her heart is a cold, dark place.

Bill: Maybe mine is, too.

Katie: No. No way. You can’t say that to me because I have felt your love. I’ve witnessed it. You can’t sell me that. This is not you. This is not who you are. You’ve been hurt. I hurt you. But for you to turn to a fugitive?

[ Katie sighing ] I’m so sorry if my rejection played any part in this. I’m so sorry. I just never dreamed that you would– I hurt you and I will regret it for the rest of my life. I’m so, so sorry. I have moderate to severe crohn’s disease.

Steffy: You have no idea the nightmare it is being at sheila’s mercy. Sheila’s just walking around. She’s a threat to everyone, but especially my family.

Hope: I– I can only imagine. Having your mother’s freedom in her hands and bill’s?

Steffy: I don’t even know bill anymore. He seems like a completely different person.

Hope: I know. Liam is really worried about him.

Steffy: I don’t want to believe that sheila completely corrupted him. I have to hold on to hope that somehow, some way, someone, is gonna get through to him.

Katie: What does this look like going forward? What’s your plan? How do you envision this future with– with a woman who has tried to kill so many people you care about? I mean, are– are we just gonna invite her to family functions? We’re gonna sit around the thanksgiving table and– and break bread with her? Wh– what happens when– when will gets married? Are you gonna show up at his wedding with this murderer on your arm? How do we explain this to our son?

Bill: “Your father found someone. Someone who cares about him.”

Katie: Someone he will never, ever meet. You know that right? I cannot allow will to be around you if you are with sheila. And that’s not a threat, that’s just a fact. I will protect my son. And I don’t want to keep him away from you, bill. I love the bond that you have. I– I know you love all of your boys, but… but will. Will is yours. You raised him and he loves you so much. And the relationship you have with him, it’s– it’s special and unique and it makes me so happy. I don’t want you to feel attacked, okay? This is not– this is not me attacking you. I know that– that that’s the way you felt since this whole thing started. And you don’t need that anymore. What you need, what you need to hear is that you have people in your life who love you and who care about you. Like me. Please don’t do this. Please, please don’t bring this woman into our lives. Don’t let her anywhere near our son.

Bill: What do you mean, our lives? You turned your back on me, katie. We made a pledge. A pledge that we would raise our son together. That’s what I wanted for us.

Katie: You wanted brooke. That was the problem. I hurt you. And you hurt me. We’ve hurt each other over and over again. I– maybe too many times. But this– this is beyond hurt. This is– this is despair. Knowing that you’re with sheila, it– it’s killing me.

Bill: I’m sorry, katie. I’m sorry for everything I’ve done. For all the times I hurt you. You were right and I was wrong. But does it have to mean the end of us forever? You, me, and will?

Katie: If you’re with sheila, then yes. It is the end of our family. But if she were to go back to prison–

Bill: What are you saying? That you would take me back? If sheila goes to prison, that you would forgive me? That our family could be one again?

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript proofread and provided by Suzanne

[ Door opens and closes ]

Victoria: Thanks, all, for coming. I wanted to meet because I have some deep concerns about Tucker McCall. I know that we have all speculated about his real reason for returning to Genoa City ever since he landed on the Abbott lawn. His interactions around town were intended to make us believe that he wanted to reunite with Ashley and Devon and to exploit the Chancellor-Winters IPO.

Nick: Well, in all fairness, we wanted to do the same thing.

Victoria: Yes, true, but since then, he has completely failed both at his personal and his professional goals.

Nikki: Well, he lost any hope of a reunion with Ashley the minute she boarded that plane for Paris.

Nick: Judging from what I’ve heard from Abby, Devon found out what Tucker was up to and no longer wants anything to do with him. So, he struck out on all three fronts. You’re probably wondering why is he still in town and what his next move is.

Victoria: Yes. I had a conversation with him where he implied that he was looking for another target, which means that we all have to be vigilant about his movements, at least while he’s here.

Victor: Well, now I’ve acquired some information about that man which may throw some light on his motives.

[ Knocking on door ]

Chelsea: Hey.

Billy: Hi. Um, I was just in the neighborhood, thought I’d come by and say hi and, you know, maybe spitball some ideas about the podcast.

Chelsea: Not sure that’s a good idea.

Billy: Okay. Um, if you’re busy, I can — I can come back later.

Chelsea: Actually, I’m thinking the entire podcast might not be a good idea.

Audra: What a waste of time. Okay, why was Phyllis pitching us if she didn’t even have a right to approach us with her son’s project?

Nate: You know, I actually admire her brazenness. And I’m intrigued by Daniel’s gaming platform. If it’s on unsteady ground at Chancellor-Winters, there may be something to pursue.

Audra: I can’t see how. Having been privy to Chancellor-Winters’ legal contracts, I can tell you those things are ironclad. Yeah, I don’t think Daniel can get out of his unless the company decides to release him. You know, and if Lily’s reaction to Phyllis shopping around his idea was any indication, I don’t think that’s gonna happen, which means we’d be wasting time, energy, resources by going after it.

Nate: Mm. Exactly how much access did you have to Chancellor-Winters’ legal contracts, when it comes to projects like Daniel’s?

Daniel: Why would you take it upon yourself to go to Nate to pitch my project to him when I explicitly told you that I wasn’t ready to give up on the deal with Lily and Chancellor-Winters?

Phyllis: Okay, well, you said that that company was putting your project on hold.

Daniel: When I told you that things were shaky over there, I thought I was confiding in my mother and not some opportunist who was gonna go and shop my idea behind my back.

Phyllis: “Opportunist”? Seriously? That’s how you see me? Listen, I just went to Newman Media ’cause, you know, I was doing it as an exploratory thing, you know, to sort of whet their appetite. And I think I did. We need to have alternatives if this thing crashes in. I mean, we need to have a backup plan.

Daniel: Okay, you need to stop talking like this is ours. This is my platform, mine alone. And I’m not gonna trust virtual strangers with my dream project. [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: All right, listen, Daniel, the Newmans are hardly strangers. Nick was your stepfather.

Daniel: Well, nonetheless, I’m wary of getting involved with any Newman-run company. I mean, I got to tell you, the worst part about this is you shared privileged information. I mean, I poured my heart out to you and Dad. I told you how much this project means to me, why I need this so bad, and not just on a professional level. I mean, I can’t just ignore the fact that you have compromised my intellectual property. Now any person or any company that you spoke with about it — they can take my ideas and they can run with them before I ever get Omege Sphere off the ground.

Phyllis: Okay. Okay. I’m sorry. I — I — listen, I only spoke to Nate and — and his COO because, uh, it seems like Chancellor-Winters is shelving this project indefinitely. And I know what that does to you. Listen, I want to see your vision come to fruition. And I didn’t say anything risky to Nate. I didn’t say anything risky. Really. I didn’t even talk to the rest of the Newmans about it.

Daniel: What about Tucker McCall?

Phyllis: What about Tucker McCall? I mean, Tucker just overheard me leaving a message for Nate. Honestly, Tucker — I wouldn’t give him a sip of water if he was in the middle of a desert.

Daniel: Hmm. Okay. So, you only shared information with the man who sold out his cousins to give Newman the opportunity to acquire a majority holding of Chancellor-Winters. That’s great. No, I just never thought that you would go and do this with Nate without asking me first. I — I don’t know. That’s my mistake for thinking the best of you.

Phyllis: What? You don’t mean that. Daniel. Okay, I’m sorry. Oh, my gosh. I overreacted. Give me a break. I care about this project for you. I just want the best for you. That’s all.

Daniel: Fair enough. But if my platform ever needs a new home, which it doesn’t yet, it’s my call who we go with, okay? My call. And if I’m being honest with you, right now, if I had to choose, Tucker looks like the better option instead of Newman Media.

Billy: So, what made you think that the podcast might not be a good idea?

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] I had my therapy session with Dr. Malone. I told her my idea, and she thinks it’s too soon to venture into something so personal and intimate.

Billy: Mm.

Chelsea: Reliving the trauma of my suicide attempt before I’ve finished processing it could be a potential minefield for me.

Billy: Well, I’m sure that was disappointing, but I — I understand what she’s saying.

Chelsea: Well, I was disappointed…until I talked it through with Dr. Malone. She said that it’s actually a really good thing that I wanted to do the podcast. It means I’m focused on my recovery and I am trying to pay it forward and I’m focusing on the future, which is something I couldn’t say a few months ago. So… all of this is about my recovery, right? So [Sighs] How can I be disappointed?

Billy: Hmm.

Victor: Well, now, I asked Michael Baldwin to look into Tucker McCall’s claim that he was a reformed man when he landed in Genoa City.

Victoria: What did he find out?

Victor: Apparently, McCall’s lavish lifestyle — spending money left and right — has put his company under a mountain of debt.

Nikki: How is that possible? The last we knew, he was selling off parts of his company in order to secure capital to buy out Chancellor-Winters’ stock. I mean, you would think he would have some liquid assets available.

Victor: That’s what we all assumed, but then he took out a number of short-term loans. That’s how short he was of his agenda.

Nick: Could just be a desperation move to stabilize his empire.

Victor: But those debts are coming due. So I think what he’s doing — he’s looking for a lucrative company to keep him afloat.

Audra: I told you I didn’t know the details of Daniel’s deal. My insider info was limited to things pertaining directly to the IPO, nothing connected with development or creative planning.

Nate: You never heard anything around the office?

Audra: Uh, I knew Lily and Devon were discussing building an entire gaming division around the idea Daniel was developing. I was also aware that they were preparing a press release towards the end of my tenure with them. Since it never came out, I’m assuming they hit a standstill.

Nate: Hmm. Interesting.

Audra: Why are you asking me all this? Are you thinking of poaching Daniel from Chancellor-Winters? Or stealing his idea?

Nate: No. No, I’m just curious. I would definitely like to know what’s going on at Chancellor-Winters that would make this project so precarious. I’m sure it has something to do with Devon. His inability to collaborate or take chances is probably bringing the entire company to its knees.

Audra: Why do you still care so much about your family’s company? If I remember correctly, you were quite adamant about putting your time there behind you.

Nate: You’re right. Old habits die hard, I guess. You know, it’s too bad you burned your bridge with them, too. It would have been nice to have some inside information.

Audra: We both burned our bridges at Chancellor-Winters. If I hadn’t, I wouldn’t be here.

Nate: You’re right. So I’m glad you did.

Audra: Even if I disagree with you about going after the gaming platform?

Nate: Look, let’s get something straight. I appreciate your input. I’m not afraid of being challenged. I like to hear different points of view so I can make an informed decision.

Audra: And I’m willing to support you 100% if you feel strongly about something, even if our opinions differ. But let me ask you this. If you’re not ready to let go of the idea and if we have no insider information to help us sign Daniel, how would you go about pursuing him?

Nate: I say we sit the guy down and sell him on Newman Media, show him why we’re a better, much more stable, fit for his venture.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Audra: [ Sighs ]

Nate: Everything okay?

Audra: Yeah. Uh, can we finish this discussion in a little bit? I have to go take care of something.

[ Door opens ]

Audra: [ Sighs ]

Billy: Well, that is a great attitude to have, positive and accepting of Dr. Malone’s advice. I remember a time when if someone said no to your idea, you’d fall down the rabbit hole.

Chelsea: Exactly. And that wasn’t that long ago.

Billy: Well, look at how far you’ve come. That’s a good thing.

Chelsea: Thank you.

Billy: [ Chuckles ]

Chelsea: I heard what she had to say, and it’s just not the right time for a podcast.

Billy: You know, uh, I got to say, when you first told me the idea about the podcast, I did share some of Dr. Malone’s concerns. But this is your recovery, this is your process, and I just want to be supportive.

Chelsea: And you have been. You’re more in tune with what’s good or bad for me than you realize. And I want you to know, I really appreciate hearing your honest, unfiltered thoughts. I know I have to run everything by Dr. Malone, but I — I feel like I’m ready to start opening myself up again to feedback, even if it’s negative. So, receiving it from somebody that I know cares about me — that could definitely cushion the blow.

Billy: Well, I appreciate your vote of confidence, although I’m not sure you should be taking my advice. I have screwed up plenty of times, and I’m still playing it by ear.

Chelsea: Aren’t we all?

Phyllis: Daniel, Tucker McCall is not a good guy. He is a snake.

Daniel: Well, at least he’s true to form. And he’s a smart and intuitive businessman. And he made a lot of salient points. He understood that there could be a crossover between our business and our personal lives. Look, I got to tell you, without me even saying anything, he already knew that Lucy and Heather leaving me was a big part of why I created this whole gaming experience and a way for me to heal.

Phyllis: Oh, a way for you to heal. Really? Oh, my goodness. He’s manipulating you. He’s very good at reading people. He’s very good at reading people and then manipulating them to do what he wants.

Daniel: Or another way of looking at it is that he showed some insight. And McCall Unlimited — they have all the resources and infrastructure we need to hit the ground running.

Phyllis: Okay, well, a lot of companies would.

Daniel: Yeah, a lot of companies do, but with McCall, I’d be dealing directly with Tucker — one guy, less hoops to jump through, and more autonomy.

Phyllis: Okay, well, he’d be holding all the hoops. You know this. And if you start working with him and your agenda is different than his agenda, it’s war.

Daniel: I’m not naive. I know his reputation. But I don’t judge people for the worst thing they’ve ever done. And he seemed genuine in his enthusiasm for my vision.

Phyllis: Of course he is — because your vision is brilliant, because you’re brilliant, Daniel. He wants to be a part of that. He is not real. He is not a genuine guy.

Daniel: You know, Omege Sphere is supposed to be about changing people’s lives, right? Giving the opportunity to grow and be better. I think that if Tucker is willing to do that in his own life, then he might be the better alternative than Newman Media. If — if we need one. I’m not ready to jump ship yet. I trust Lily to come through.

Victor: Well, Michael Baldwin is still trying to find out what Tucker McCall’s true motives are. I mean, how is he gonna regain solid footing without selling his entire company? He has no backing, no bank supporting him at the moment. I think the walls are closing in on him.

Nick: There’s something else we should be worried about. Newman Media recently hired Audra Charles. Now, Nate told Victoria that she was working with Tucker to leak information about the Chancellor-Winters IPO. So we need to be very wary of her allegiances. Despite what she’s told us, I wouldn’t put deception past her. We still don’t know the status of her and Tucker’s relationship. They could still be aligned.

Nikki: We need to keep Audra at a distance until we know if we can trust her.

Victor: Well, let’s think about that for a moment. I think it might be to our advantage if she keeps working with Tucker McCall.

Victoria: I think Dad’s right. I think we need to stay on the offense, turn the tables, force him to be on his guard around us.

Nikki: Are you saying you think we should go after McCall Unlimited?

Victoria: I am. And we were looking for a way to expand by taking over Chancellor-Winters. That door has closed, so maybe another one is opening.

Nick: I don’t think that’s the right move at all. If Tucker’s struggling, it could make him an even more dangerous adversary, and we all know what he’s capable of. Tucker could be very close to crumbling on his own. If that’s the case, then we just let him do it. And then Newman Enterprises swoops in, takes up all the pieces as his company falls apart. To blatantly go after him right now seems too risky.

Victor: Or it’s a golden opportunity. His divisions fold nicely into our portfolio.

Nick: If we succeed in taking them over.

Victor: Son, have you ever known me to go into battle without believing I’d win?

Nick: I’m not dismissing the idea, Dad. I just think we need to carefully weigh the pros and cons before we make the move. Vick, we really got to go. We’re late for that meeting with VPs.

Victoria: But I would like to revisit this sooner rather than later. It’s a good opportunity. I wouldn’t want to see it slip away.

[ Door closes ]

Audra: I was surprised to hear from you. Last time we spoke, you wanted nothing to do with me.

Tucker: Yeah. I let my temper get the best of me. I apologize. It’s a part of myself that I really don’t like and I’m trying to evolve past. [ Sighs ] But, um…I miss — I miss our conversations and — and your take on things. And I’m in a bit of a crossroads now, and I could use some of that.

Audra: So, you called me here to entertain you.

Tucker: No. No.

Audra: Then you want some kind of information out of me?

Tucker: [ Chuckles ] When did you get so cynical?

Audra: The day I met you. You know, I’ve known you way too long to fall for this “Let’s have an innocent chat” line, okay? Just get to the point.

Tucker: Uh [Clears throat] I was actually wondering if you knew anything about Newman Media’s pursuit of Daniel Romalotti’s new gaming platform.

Audra: Ah! There it is. You want me to use my connections and resources to collude with you again? I’d think you would have more important things to do, like, um, fly to Paris and beg Ashley for forgiveness or mending the rift with your son. Wait. Now I’m starting to think that everything you told me about coming to Genoa City to repair your relationships with them was absolute B.S.

Tucker: No. No. My desire to make things right with them was and still is sincere.

Audra: Ah.

Tucker: Yeah, but dwelling and sulking are not in my nature, so I need to keep moving forward. And this — this gaming project seems intriguing to me.

Audra: Keep your hands off that. If anyone is gonna snatch it away from Chancellor-Winters, it’s gonna be Newman Media.

Tucker: [ Laughs ] I got to say, the idea of competing with you on it makes it even more interesting. I miss you, Audra. I miss our partnership. And we were good friends, right?

Audra: We were. But you blew it.

Tucker: I know I did. I’m sorry.

Audra: Hey.

Tucker: Can we hit reset?

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Thanks for, uh — for joining me.

Chelsea: Yeah.

Billy: Felt like I needed to get some fresh air, you know, clear my head a little.

Chelsea: Mm. I did, too. I was getting a little antsy in the apartment. And it’s nice to finally want to go out and want to go somewhere.

[ Sighs heavily ]

Billy: It’s a crisp, beautiful day.

Chelsea: It is. So, why do you have to clear your head? Is something on your mind?

Billy: No, nothing in particular, really. I guess I’m just, you know, thinking about you and your desire to find your purpose. That’s not an easy thing to do.

Chelsea: Mm.

Billy: Trust me. I’ve failed at it repeatedly.

Chelsea: Hey, don’t talk about my friend like that.

Billy: [ Chuckles ]

Chelsea: I don’t know. I think the key to finding peace isn’t just [Sighs] figuring out what your purpose is. It’s figuring out what your purpose isn’t. And you are doing that work. You’re narrowing it down. You’re — you’re giving yourself space to explore, you know? I believe that you shouldn’t just choose between things that people offer you. You need to trust yourself and pave your own path.

Billy: That’s a very generous perspective of my life.

Chelsea: [ Laughs ]

Daniel: Lily has been one of the truest and most genuine people that I’ve known for as long as I can remember. If anyone can be trusted, it’s her.

Phyllis: Listen, I really like Lily. I do. And I understand that you have loyalty toward her. I totally get where that comes from. But it just seems to me that her company is imploding. I really think you should get out while you can.

Daniel: Huh. Well, this is just a little bit ironic, don’t you think? I mean, it seems like you’re sitting here telling me that I should cut all ties before they drag me down. You literally just let an old grudge ruin your career and your relationship with Summer.

Phyllis: Okay. Okay. Daniel, everything that I said and I predicted about that situation proved that I was correct.

Daniel: That’s great. That’s fantastic. What did being right get you? [ Sighs ]

[ Door closes ]

Billy: You know, I’ve had a lot of time to think. I don’t have a job. Living alone at the Grand Phoenix, you know, plenty of time to ponder my loneliness, my likes, my dislikes, my joys, despair. I’ve had a lot of sobering moments. But, you know, it’s like I said last time we were hanging out. When I see you, it’s, uh — you know, it’s like a highlight of my day. I guess I’m realizing in all of this that we’ve — we’ve lived parallel lives for quite some time.

Chelsea: Well, that’s kind of a stretch.

[ Both chuckle ]

Billy: Well, maybe my issues haven’t been quite as intensive as yours, but, you know, there are similarities there, both emotionally and mentally. You know, this — this journey that we’re on — I don’t know. I guess that’s maybe why we connect. I guess what I’m saying is I’m very grateful for this friendship.

Nate: Everything okay?

Audra: Yeah, absolutely. Ready to jump back in.

Nate: Whatever you had to do seemed to put a pep in your step.

Audra: Oh, I, uh, had to put some issues from my past to bed. And, um, yeah…I feel good.

Nate: I hope this brush with the past doesn’t involve anything that might take you away from Newman and back to London.

Audra: I’m not looking for a new gig. I like it here. But it’s good to know that I’m valued. And I’m coming around the idea of going after Omege Sphere.

Nate: Really? Great.

Audra: So let’s put our heads together and figure out a way.

[ Knock on door ]

Victor: Baby, you have been awfully quiet since we broached the subject of potentially acquiring Tucker McCall’s company.

Nikki: I’m hoping that Michael will find something that will make a takeover less hostile and risky.

Victor: I’m still in favor of making a move on his company.

Nikki: Well, I can certainly see the upside for us, although Newman Enterprises really isn’t lacking in anything right now. And for Victoria, I know for her it’s more the love of the game, which she inherited from you. What I don’t understand is why you seem to be so invested in this.

Victor: Baby, you just said that Victoria inherited her love of the game from me. Doesn’t that explain everything?

Nikki: Not this time.

Victor: Hmm.

Nikki: It seems like you are specifically going after Tucker McCall. And if that’s the case… I want to know why.

Nick: I am glad that didn’t take long.

Victoria: I know. The VP meetings are much more efficient when we eliminate all the small talk at the beginning.

Nick: Agreed. Thank you, Andy. What looks good to you? I’m starving.

Victoria: Before we worry about what we’re gonna eat, I have to ask you — why are you not sold on this Tucker idea? I mean, the upside is enormous. The reach of McCall Unlimited is international, and having that brand under the Newman umbrella, it would just solidify our position in the global community. Plus, snatching Tucker’s company out from underneath him would be delicious karma, especially after all of his past lies and machinations.

Nick: That’s all true, but something about this doesn’t sit right with me. I can’t shake the feeling that this is all part of a bigger plan that Dad’s put in motion by telling us about it.

Victoria: Well, that wouldn’t be the first time.

Nick: Doesn’t make it alright.

Victoria: Anything else troubling you?

Nick: [ Sighs ] What do you mean?

Victoria: I don’t know. Call it sisterly intuition, but I feel like you’ve been carrying around this personal weight all day. Whatever it is, you can talk to me about it, alright? Because if we have learned anything this past year, it’s that we can trust each other. Tucker. Join us.

Tucker: Hey.

Victoria: Hi.

Daniel: Sorry for stopping in unannounced and for all the confusion with my mother earlier. I just wanted to clear the air. Obviously, she overstepped. Her intentions were good, but she jumped the gun on something that she doesn’t know a lot about and doesn’t have any control over.

Audra: I suspected as much since I remember hearing about your collaboration with Chancellor-Winters when I worked there, and I assume it wasn’t as easy as just placing a bid.

Daniel: You’re right. It’s not. I have an active contract with them, and I have every intention of honoring it. After our encounter, I just felt like I should come here in person and, you know, clarify any misconceptions. But if anything does change in the future, I’d be happy to sit down and discuss possibilities. So, again, sorry for any confusion.

Nate: Uh, hold on a second. If you have a few minutes and there’s an opportunity for some kind of future collaboration, however small the chances are, what’s the harm in letting us sell ourselves to you?

Chelsea: You’ve been thinking about this a lot, haven’t you?

Billy: Does it seem that way? Well, I guess it’s just, you know, we’ve — we’ve both had our fair share of struggles.

Chelsea: Mm.

Billy: And I’m not comparing mine to yours or anything like that, but I know — I know that darkness…

Chelsea: Mm.

Billy: …When you’re trying to find that light or that saving grace. I know that feeling. You know, we’ve both been adrift when it comes to finding a career or something that fulfills us. And don’t take this the wrong way, but we both struck out on love.

Chelsea: Alright, alright, I get it.

Billy: You’re not finding any comfort in what we have in common?

Chelsea: No, please, please carry on.

Billy: I don’t know. You know, it’s just we’ve both fought back against being pigeonholed into these opportunities that other people think are right for us.

Chelsea: Mm-hmm.

Billy: Instead, we search for what makes us feel good, what our passions are. And I think — [ Sighs ] I think that’s what I loved about the podcast, you know? I mean, the back-and-forth was great, of course, but I think it was getting to know each other on that — that deeper level.

Chelsea: I think so, too. You know, when you said the parallel lives thing earlier, I thought you were just trying to make me feel less alone, but now I believe you actually mean it.

Billy: I do. You know, I’m — I’m very proud of all the work that you’ve done and how determined you are. And it makes me feel determined, too.

Chelsea: [ Breathes deeply ]

Nate: The first thing I would say as far as Chancellor-Winters versus Newman goes is that Audra and I have worked at both places and we have found Newman Media to be a much happier business home.

Daniel: Well, I’m sorry you didn’t have a good experience at Chancellor-Winters, but that hasn’t been the case for me.

Audra: You had to have noticed the turmoil there.

Daniel: I am committed to Lily and her company. My word — it means a lot to me. When I make commitments, I do my best to honor them and to not betray the people that believe in me. This project means everything to me. It’s literally my future. It’s not a “sell to the highest bidder” kind of thing. So, I hope that’s something that you can both understand and accept and respect. [ Chuckles ] Again, thank you for your time.

Nate: I am more intrigued than ever.

Audra: If you intend to go after Daniel’s platform, you should know you have some competition waiting for you. Tucker McCall has the same idea.

Nate: And you know that how?

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] You did not have to walk me home, but that was a very chivalrous gesture.

Billy: All good. Um, so, listen. I, uh — I have a few things to take care of today, but maybe we can grab dinner soon.

Chelsea: Sure. Um…I could cook us something.

Billy: Yeah, yeah, we can do that, or we could — could go out, you know, unless it’s too stressful.

Chelsea: No. I don’t think it would be too stressful. I’d like that.

Billy: Okay, good. Some food, some — some fun.

Chelsea: Yeah.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Alright, uh… well, we’ll figure it out.

Chelsea: Sounds great.

Billy: Okay. Have a good one.

Chelsea: You too.

Billy: Okay.

Chelsea: Bye.

Billy: See you.

Victor: But I have other reasons for wanting to acquire McCall Unlimited.

Nikki: Care to fill me in?

Victor: [ Breathes deeply ] I have a feeling that one of the divisions might be appealing to Adam when he comes back.

Nikki: You mean if he comes back. Victor, don’t tell me that’s what this is about — trying to lure Adam back to Newman Enterprises.

Victor: No, no, no, no. As I said, there would be many benefits to acquiring McCall Unlimited.

Nikki: And you realize that your other children are not pawns in your constant battle with Adam, right?

Victor: I know that. Don’t you worry, okay? I’ve thought this through. I think this will be good for everyone concerned. But when Adam realizes that we have McCall Unlimited in our portfolio, that would give him a very strong reason to stay.

Tucker: A, uh — [ Laughs ] an invitation from the Newman siblings? That’s…a suspicious surprise.

Victoria: No, we — we just wanted to talk.

Tucker: Oh, really? What about?

Nick: Your future plans.

Tucker: Yeah, I figured. Say, did you fill him in on the nasty rumor you started that I’m coming after your company?

Victoria: Oh, that? Uh, no, I — I hadn’t given it a second thought since we spoke, since the idea of you being successful at it is dubious at best.

Tucker: What, then?

Victoria: Oh, we just wanted to let you know that there’s another nasty rumor floating around.

Tucker: Oh. Do tell.

Nick: Your company’s in trouble.

Tucker: Well, you know you’re on top when people feel the need to start gossiping about you. But, uh, I don’t believe rumors. Neither should you.

Next week on “The Young And The Restless”…

Nate: Someone else in my place might wonder if you’re working Tucker…or me… or both of us.

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

Summer: Okay. Where — where are you going?

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

Kyle: I found something interesting, something I think you can use to get Adam out of the company.

won again. Are you sure you’re not letting me win? Why would I do that? I, uh, I don’t know. You know, my mom just went off the deep end and my stepmom just died, and I feel terrible about both those things. I’m not that good a person. Hmm. I always play to win. Oh, okay. Well then I will accept my victory and thank you for keeping me company all day.

I was happy to be here. You sure I saw you checking your phone every a few minutes? I was not. Hmm.

Okay. Maybe I thought I’d hear from Johnny. I am sure he is just busy with family stuff.

Are you kidding me right now, Courtney? Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to interrupt this special moment. Look, this is not what you think. Okay? Okay. So my brother and my girlfriend weren’t just about to cheat on me. No, Allie, take it easy. Okay. It was just a friendly hug. Well, this is the second time that I’ve caught the two of you getting cozy together.

Obviously something is going on and I would like to know.

Why do I let Chanel’s mom get to me time? Pauline is a formidable woman. All right. Just try not to let her get to you. Enjoy breakfast. Not only has she ruined my entire life, but she’s also ruined my pancakes. They’re ice cold. All right, let me warm up for you. No, that’s okay. I’m not even hungry. I mean, how can I eat after I have to deal with both Nicole and Paul in the same day?

Yeah. I’m really sorry. Things got outta hand between you and Nicole,

whatever. At least now she knows that you’ve moved on and hopefully she realizes that it’s time for her to do.

Nicole, what you doing? Whatcha doing me right?

Hey, are you home? I was hoping I could stop by really? I thought you said you couldn’t stand being in the same room as me. Well, I just had a little run in with Stephan and got ugly. Did he hurt you? No. No, nothing like that. I just just wanna talk. Is that all right? Of course. I’ll be waiting. Okay. See you soon.

Stephan, I’m gonna get you deprogrammed, whether you like it or not.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Hey. Hey. Thanks for bringing this by. Yeah. Special batch of chatter for you and the family. I’ll make sure Dad eats some. Yeah. Is uh, is he around? No, him and Steph just went to St. Luke’s to make arrangements, but they should be home soon. Okay. Oh, hi, I, I’m, uh, Roman Brady. I’m, uh, Tripp’s uncle. Oh, yeah. I’m, I’m sorry.

Uh, uncle Roman. This is Wendy Shin. Hi. Nice to meet. Uh, I’m so sorry to hear about your wife and your sister. Well, thank you. If I may, I met Dr. Johnson in Hong Kong and she was a tonal badass that she was. Yes. Uh, So what’s with Shiner kid? Uh, it’s just a weird thing at the park, but it’s all good now.

All right. Look, I’m telling you, there’s nothing going on between the two of us. And why are you here? I came over to see Wendy. Okay. And since she wasn’t here, you decided to throw yourself at Chanel. We were just talking and hugging. Do not forget that I, I wouldn’t cheat on you. Oh, no you wouldn’t because you admitted to me last night that you and Johnny almost kissed.

So how far would you have gone today? All right. Stop it, Allie. Yeah. I am glad that I stopped it by walking through that door because if I hadn’t, the two of you might be having sex on that couch right now.

Can I at least heat that up for you? That’s just gonna make them rubbery. Let me get you something else. How about my family’s famous clams Chowder for breakfast. Considering an early lunch, I mean, it will warm your soul and rain. Now your soul needs to warming up. It’s on the house. All right. You can’t say no.

I can never say no to you.

Well, I, I, I, I, I, I’ve, I don’t think this is a good idea. Ah, why the hell not? Well, for one thing, you’re still upset about Eric. Ah, please. I don’t care about Eric, and obviously he doesn’t care about me. He and Sloan are probably somewhere off doing it, like rabbits. This is what I’m talking about. Well, I’m talking about how slow, I’m like to rub this in my face, so I’m gonna rub this in her face.

I don’t think Sloane would care if you and I slept together. Hi. Now rub it near it’s face. Yeah, the whole goose scanner thing. Wait a minute, IOR. Oh, let’s just do this.

Okay. You sure you don’t want me to stick around? At least until your family comes back, I will be fine. Okay. You are officially relieved of your babysitting duties. I wasn’t babysitting. I actually like hanging out with you, even though I do have to occasionally throw the controller. You swear you aren’t letting me win.

I told you I’m not that generous. You on the other hand, you are a good guy. You did something nice earlier. What did I do? Oh, and Roman asked about your eye. You didn’t rat out Johnny. Yeah. Well my family’s going through enough. Like I said, he apologized, so we’re cool still. You probably saved him a lecturer.

Two from his grandfather. You didn’t have to. Okay. Yes, you’re right. I’m a hero. So you are gonna be sticking around Salem for a while? Yeah, I’m not sure. At least through the funeral. Well, if, uh, you ever need to talk or crush someone at two k. Feel free to hit me up. Thanks, Wendy. I appreciate it.

Will you stop overreacting right before you just walked in here? I was telling Chanel that I’m happy you two were together and I was telling Johnny I was happy he found Wendy. What you saw was just us wishing each other. Let’s just chill. Okay. Okay. Well maybe I could just chill. If the two of you hadn’t almost kissed last night, it was a dumb, impulsive moment and it will never happen again.

Why would I believe that? Because it’s the truth. All right, well, you stop. You’re getting yourself all worked up over nothing and all this jealousy you’re starting to sound like, like Mom, were you just about to say, I sound like Mom. I. You take that back right now. Why would I, you are acting exactly like her.

You’re jumping to conclusions, you’re throwing a tantrum. You’re making it all about you. Okay. Well, you know what? I think that you’re acting like your dad. How, uh, EJ makes moves on women who are already taken, like Aunt Bell or mom when she was race. Oh, all right. I am not making moves. Of course you are.

And just like your father, you don’t care about the relationships that you ruin as long as you get what you.

Nicole, Nicole, stop. Stop. Stop, stop, stop. What is the problem? A New year’s you avan us getting together. Yes. And you put the breaks on. Remember, you said you wanted to stop making impulsive decisions. Okay, well, it’s been almost a month, so there’s nothing impulsive about it. You made it very clear. That you weren’t ready.

Mm-hmm. . But now I am ready. Oh. Looks like you are too. . What? What? Why are you doing this? Hey, Jay, don’t you want me ? Of course. Of course I do.

Then why do you keep pulling? Because I don’t think you are in the right mind to make an informed decision. Why not? Common parlance my drunk is a skunk.

Hi, come on in. Thanks. Sorry, I’m kind of sweaty. I was, I was at the gym working off my frustration over getting fired. DJJ fired you? Yeah. Came by Bright and nerdly to do it in person. I guess that’s not surprising, but I’m sorry. Thank you. So what happened with Stefan? Well, I was at the Demir state, um, trying to convince Stefan yet again to get Deprogrammed.

You don’t give up to. No, it’s not in my nature. I mean, I tried to remind him of, you know, the love that we used to share, but he just doubled down and was calling me vicious names, telling me I’m a terrible person. Mm-hmm. . I hate that he’s doing that too. Thank you. Why you telling me all this? Gabby? Is it so you can yell at me again for brainwashing, Stephan, for turning him against you?

No, Lee, that’s not why I’m here. And why are you.

I am here to say that you’re right when it comes to Stephan, I’m wasting my time and the person that I should be with is you.

What did you say? You heard me? Okay, then I’m going off the rails and hurry. You don’t get to criticize my father when yours is in prison for kidnapping mom. Oh, you really think my dad has committed more crimes than yours? Oh, you better watch out Chanel if all starts to feel too insecure, she might have you kidnapped little.

Okay. That is enough. Stop it. Both of you. Did you hear what he just said to me? I heard what you both said, Johnny. And it’s time for you to go. Yeah, it’s fine by. If we tell Wendy that I stop by. Yeah. Okay. And I’ll make sure to tell her that when she wasn’t here. You hooked up with my girlfriend instead.



mm. Seriously? You, you’ve never had cle char. It’s good. I mean, it’s substantial.

Are you saying you don’t like our famous chowder? Uh, no. I’m just saying that, um, warm milk and clams not really my thing. Okay. First of all, it’s just heavy cream. It sure is. Okay. You know what? I had completely judged your character. I don’t think we can be friends after this. Look, I’m not saying it’s not good chowder, you know, I’m just, I’m a little bit more of a chicken noodle.

Traditionalist chicken noodle. That’s it. Out out. I want you, Adam, you’re kicking me out into Yes, you can take your blasphemy over to Julie’s place and you and Paul. Y’all can enjoy your spongy little noodles and chicken cubes. I didn’t realize you took your chowder so seriously. Oh my God. Are you kidding me?

That is a famous Brady recipe. And if my father heard you despairing his moss chowder, oh my God. It’s like putting the knife to his heart. Well then I’m so glad that you’re gonna keep this between the two of us because I would hate for your dad to know that. Um, I actually kind of hate it. Yeah, you certain.

Good morning to hear that.

Excuse me. There is nothing skunky about me. No, but you are inebriated. Inebriated as in chimpanzee. I don’t get it. I’m not drunk. It’s a skunk and a drunk. With a monk. I understand. Okay. Like I can’t be drunk. I just had one measly mimosa and maybe teeny tiny champagne chaser. Tiny. And nevertheless, it has hit you pretty hard.

Oh, stop. I can find, see. Perfectly fine. Oh, oh God. Oh, oh, oh. The room. Spinning. I’m gonna be sick, Nicole.

I have to say, this is very surprising. The last time I saw you, you dumped a bucket of ice on my head. I was upset clearly. I mean, can you blame me after everything that you did? I suppose not, but Gabby, that doesn’t explain the sudden 180

after I calmed down, I, I thought about what you said and I wouldn’t have even bothered you if I didn’t feel like there was some sort of passion between us.

So you admitted.

I admit that I, I feel emotions around you. I feel them very strongly. You are right. You are right about a lot of things. Like what? You and I are the same. We, we both go to drastic measures for what we want and. Stephan would never love me the way that you do and that you and I belong together. You didn’t want to hear it.

I know, but that was then, and I mean, after everything that happened today, I, I can’t deny it. Gabby, what are you saying? I’m saying I need to give up on stuff and, and really give our marriage a try.

Nicole, how are we doing in there? You okay?

Oh, don’t, don’t look at me. Why? Because this is so embarrassing. There’s no reason to be embarrassed. Ah, yes. I, I practically jumps you in. You turn me down, and then I puked like a freshman at a frat party.

I’m flattered, you know, flatter that I threw up. I’m flatter that you wanted to be with me. Trust me, it was hard to turn you down and why did. Because you were too drunk to know what you were doing. Ah, this doesn’t make any sense. I mean, I only had a, a drink and a half. I mean, everyone knows I can hold my liquor.

You said you didn’t have breakfast. Yeah, but still I’m Nicole freaking walker, the goat. Even restaurants won’t serve me bottomless mimosas because I put ’em out of business. . Hey, even LeBron James has an off day. Yeah.

Unless, unless, unless something was wrong with the champagne. Maybe, but I had some and I’m fine.

And what happened to me,

Sloane? This is my dad. Dad, this is Sloane Peterson. Mr. Brady, it’s a pleasure to meet you, and I’m very sorry to hear about what happened to your wife. Thank you. I appreciate that. Even if. Do hate my chatter. Oh, first of all, let me just say I hate all Clem chowder. I’m not sure that’s helping. Uh, anyway, I’m extremely grateful for the hospitality, and I hope you don’t hold us against me.

Of course. Now what I do hold against you is the way you’ve gone after Paulina Price and retire. Dad is married to a carver who happens to be my best friend, which makes her family. There is nothing more important than me than family. I feel the same way, which is why I won’t stop until Paul and Chanel have both paid for their crimes.

They took my parents from me, and I’m not gonna stop until they’ve both been brought to Justice.

Wendy, I was not hooking up with Chanel. Allie just completely misread. You don’t need to explain yourself to me. You can do whatever you want.

You know, you’re right. You’re nothing like mom. Thanks, lassis.

Where are you going? To the office to do some work? Mm-hmm. I don’t think so. We are gonna talk this out. I’m not really in the mood. I thought you said you came home to work things out with me. Yeah. And then I saw you in my brother’s arms. I told you it was totally innocent. You knew that. I was really upset about the two of you Almost kissing last night.

Why would you think it’s okay to have him over and give him a hug for the ump? Empty time? Johnny and I are just friends. You have nothing to worry about. Yeah. That’s what. Hold up. You went to see Alex.

I missed you so much. I missed you too. Are are, are you serious about this? About giving our marriage a try? I’m gonna show you how serious I am.

The vows that we took to love each other for better or worse, I don’t take them lightly. So you’re giving up on Stephan? He gave up on, on me a long time ago. I just couldn’t see it. So am I The consolation of prize probably. I I loved you before Stephan came back, but yes, I had a hard time accepting it.

But the Stephen. That I used to love is gone for good, and I believe you. I believe that we can get back to where we used to be. I can’t believe this. How do we start? What’s our first step? Well, we never did consummate our marriage.

You wanna consummate our marriage. Now, I wanna feel close to you again. Every time we made love, we had this deep connection. Absolutely. And if we could get to being close like that again, it, it could go towards building our relationship. Don’t you agree? Y Yeah. I mean, This is incredible. Well then why are you hesitating, Gabby?

I, I, I just wanna make sure this is what you really want. This is what I want. I, I wanna make this a real marriage. I wanna commit. I’m ready to commit. Great. Well, you think you could do a little favor for me first? Anything. Well, you mentioned you went to the gym, so maybe you could take a shower first.

Yeah, I, I can handle that and uh, in the meantime I’ll get undressed please. Leo, you have no idea how you meet.

There has to be something in here that will get rough, and I know your loyalty is with Aen, his family, but this is a complicated situation. I’m not saying. Lost her mother because Chanel pushed her off a building. From what I understand, that was self-defense. Well, Chanel and her mother are lying about that.

ARD didn’t think so well. I believe that the American judicial system will come to a different conclusion. Yeah. Hebe told me that you are suing for wrongful death. That’s right. And I expect to be vindicated. Yeah. My advice would. Drop to vendetta and move on. Dad still has every right to pursue the case.

The hell she does, all she’s doing is causing more pain. Haven’t we all had enough of that? You know what I, um, I really don’t wanna get between the two of you and cause more attention, especially at a time like this. I think I’d better just go some we’re in the middle of a lunch date.

This is a client. It shouldn’t take long, but maybe it will give you and your dad a time to sort through some things.

Can’t you just give Sloan a chance? What? You two getting serious? No, but I like. What about Nicole? Nicole? Me. You’re over. All right, we moved on. I’ve heard that before. You sure this time?

Tea and toast. The over indulges Best friend. Oh, thank God. I thought you were gonna bring me more. Your mimas yucky hangover here. Hey, that cure works. Yeah. Even if it is a little bit disgusting. Hopefully this makes you feel better. No, it couldn’t make me feel worse. That’s the spirit.

Thank you. My pleasure. No, I mean. Thank you for being a gentleman earlier.

I can’t believe it means to fool myself. You didn’t. I did, but I, I want you to know ej, that not everything I said and did was because the alcohol.

I am sick of pining over.

Eric’s not the same person. I used to love Anna to move on, and if you’re willing,

I’d like to move on with you.

Wendy. Hey, I told you I don’t need you to explain anything. Okay. It’s not like we’re a couple. Yeah. Well, yeah, but I mean, we’re, we’re what we kissed on New Year’s Eve. We haven’t even gone on a date yet. So if you’re hooking up Chanel, I mean, that’s totally, I told you I’m not hooking up with Chanel, but Allie said this.

Yeah, Allie said what she said because she’s in a fight with Chan. She wanted to mess things up with you to hurt me, so there’s nothing going on with you and Chanel.

Look, I wanna be honest with you, okay, last night at the hospital. I almost kissed her. Okay, so, so let me get this straight. You were upset with me for hanging out with Johnny while at the same time you were being consoled by Alex Kikis, one of the biggest players in town. You and Johnny were married. Okay.

And you had sex with Alex? We both did. Well, maybe you decided that you didn’t wanna share ’em after all. Maybe you wanted to turn our threesome into a twosome. I had Henry with me. We were just. Yeah, like Johnny and I were just talking and I’m sorry. No offense, but you sound like a total hypocrite. I never had feelings for Alex.

Okay. I know that. I’m just trying to make a point, which is I trust you Horton, so why the hell can’t you trust me? I mean, I’m not the one who’s cheated before, before.

That was really unfair. Yes, I cheated on trip, but I cheated on trip with you because you and I are meant to be together. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have said that. No, you shouldn’t have. But I also shouldn’t have accused you of cheating with John.

Look, um, emotions are clearly running high right now and, um, maybe we should just stop before we say something that will regret, or something else that will regret. Yeah, so. Maybe we should take a little time apart.

Yeah, I think we could both use some space. I can go to my grandpa’s. No, no. Your family’s dealing with a lot right now. I’ll, uh, go pack a bag and I’ll go stand my. Okay, thanks.

You almost kissed your sister’s girl. . What does that mean? It means that we probably would have, if Fally didn’t walk in, oh gee, I wonder why your sister’s mad at you. It’s not like that. Okay. I was upset about my grandma Marlena Chanel was just comforting me. Oh. With her lips? No, I. I was the one who instigated it.

Right. Fuck. She used to be my wife. She used to be my wife. Okay. And in that moment, I, I, I don’t know. I guess I, I just, I needed to feel close to someone. Well, do you still have feelings for her? No. I mean, I’ll always care about her, you know, and if I’m being honest with myself, There’s probably something a little unresolved between us, but that doesn’t matter.

Seems like it does. No, it doesn’t because Chanel is committed to Allie and I, I really like you.

You do.

And if it’s all right with you, I’d really like to take you on that date. What do you say?

So what exactly it is moving on with me in town?

Do I really have to explain it to you? I mean, are we talking about a relationship or just a good old fashioned roll in the hay?

I dunno. Can we just figure it out as we go along? Of course. And for the record, I’m game fryer.

Because I have a feeling we’ve been down this road many times and to make a full on commitment, I dunno, it just would be a bit premature. Yeah, it was gonna say unwise . Agreed. So perhaps when you are feeling better, You and I can go out to dinner on a proper date, just the two of us. And see how things go from there.

I would love that. And it’s a date? Yes.

And would you just trust. When it comes to me and Nicole, the ship is sailed, doors has left the stable. Okay. Pick your cliche. It’s over. Well, I’m really sorry to hear that. No, no, no. Don’t be all right. It’s over. It’s time for us to both move on. Okay, Eric, but really, phone sit in the middle of an ugly battle with Paul Le and Chanel.

You know what? I really don’t want to talk about my love life. Right. How you doing? I’m hanging in. Well, how are things going? I mean, where are you at with the funeral arrangements? Well, I told you Kate didn’t want any fuss. Okay, so what about Aunt Kaylin and mom? Well, you can talk to John and Steven from what I understand.

There’s nothing more to do at this moment. I’m back. Hope I gave you guys enough time. Sore through things, definitely, and I will bring you out something less offensive to track

Well, don’t I just make fabulous first impressions.

I guess he wouldn’t risk contacting Ralph on his regular phone. He must have a burner around here somewhere.

I, let me see. Oh, he’s called this number a bunch of times. Must be.

Oh, hi. Yeah. Hi, Dr. Rolf. This is Gabby Hernandez. No, no, no. Do not hang up on me. I need your help and I’m not taking,

I’d really like to go out with you. You would. That’s great. That’s great. I’d really like to go out with. , but your life seems really complicated right now. I told you I’m not interested in Chanel. Not, no, it’s, it’s more than that. You’ve just lost both your grandmothers, you’ve got all this drama going on with your sister.

You, you should really be with your family right now. Okay. All right. Maybe you’re right. Maybe it’s not the ideal time to start a relationship, but is it ever maybe. I just, I wanna be sure we’re both in it for the right reasons.

Okay? Okay. How about this? All right, we both take some time. We, we, we, we take our time. I get to be with my family. We let the alley and Chanel thing cool off and then things are a little more settled down. I want to take you on that date.

Okay. I can live with that. Good. So we’re good? Yeah, we’re good.

Hey. Hey. So, uh, I was thinking that maybe you should. Take the next few days off from work too. Really? Yeah. You’re dealing with a lot with your grandma and your family needs you and you need them. Okay. If you’re sure we have enough coverage, I’m sure. Okay, thanks.

Well, uh, text me if you need anything. I.

Now this is more like it. I’m glad you’re finally satisfied. Hmm. I wouldn’t say satisfied. Okay. What’s the problem? Oh, there’s no problem. But, um, if you’d like to satisfy me, maybe you can come back to my place later tonight. That is, if you’re up for the challenge, always.

If you want, I can bring some.

Trust me, Rolf, if you do what I ask, you’ll be back in the good grace for Damaris and more importantly, your ass stays out of prison. Okay, so we have deal. Good. Now get to Salem asap.

Gabby, where are you going?

Look, like I said, Johnny, this really isn’t a good time. Yeah. Um, yeah. Okay. Uh, sorry to bother you. I will, um, see if I can track down Wendy at Damara. Fuck Chanel. If you want me to go, I’ll go. Okay. But I can see that you’re upset about something and we’re friends, right? We’re good friends, so if you wanna talk, we can talk about whatever bothering you.

Wouldn’t happen to have anything to do with my sister, would it? Maybe. So you guys didn’t patch things up? No, no. Last night when I got home, Alex was here with Allie and she, uh, she wanted to have another threesome.

Hey, how’s it going?

Sorry, am am I interrupting? I just thought that you know, Eric might want his phone back. I’m not surprised you left it at my place. We made quite the mess, didn’t we? I found it. Loft in a tangle of clothes and sheaths on my bed.

Woo. Hello? Is he around that guy? Nicole, you know what Sloan? You really are pathetic.

Hope you enjoy your little drinky j. Because after a few doses of this, you’re gonna start acting pretty strangely. In fact, your judgment’s gonna be so impaired that the Derion board will have no choice to remove you and I, for one can not. Wait,

I am so sorry that I had to do that, but plus me someday soon. You’re gonna thank me.

I thought it was grateful to the mountain, but well turns out here, the mountain

like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

I am pathetic. Yeah. Because instead of handing Eric his phone discreetly you decided to broadcast it to not only me, but to every sale mite within a five mile radius. That you are a pathetic slut. Okay. What? Oh, I’m pathetic for enjoying and not feeling ashamed about my sex life. . Meanwhile, you’re out here throwing around very hurtful, antiquated slurs against women, real progressive.

Should I just go and call the town crier and tell ’em about my transgressions? You know what? I don’t care who you sleep with or how many who’s there are. Just have some class. Keep it to yourself. All right. Why don’t we just, you care very much about who I sleep with, Nicole. Oh, so much. Because this particular who happens to be you’re very handsome ex-husband.

The real question you should be asking yourself is why do I care? So Nicole, why is it because you still have the hots for Eric. Meanwhile, you’re out here drooling and panting over EJ Damira.

Oh, what did you have for breakfast? A bowling ball. Did you pull the champagne brother?

What the hell is going on here?

I just, what the hell do you think you’re doing it here? Easy. Just the person I wanted. Save your lies. It’s obvious what you’re doing in here. It. If you’re transparent, Gabby, I am. Yes. But I guarantee you Stefan will never submit to Deprogramming and you desperately sneaking into his home. Into my home to persuade him.

Otherwise will only result in you being charged with breaking an entry. I don’t think I broke anything regardless. Stephan’s feelings toward you were at one point ams, but that was a long time ago. And the sooner you give up on. Degrading enterprise That fine, fine. You got me. That’s exactly why I’m here.

Although I hardly think true love is a degrading enterprise. But what would you know about love more than you? I assure you. I also happen to be very well versed in the art of loathing present company included, and that’s all My brother feels toward you. Now, as one might say, I know it when I see it, and with Stephan, I see it.

He loaves you. I’m very, uh, aware of what he thinks. He feels about me. Thank you very much. You know, I don’t have to prove it to you or anybody else for that matter. What I know to be true and. A deep down beneath Wolf’s mind control manipulations. Your brother Stephan still loves me and we’re gonna be together again.

He’s gonna be mine forever.

bra, the performance. Well, you know what? Now if you excuse me, I’m gonna see myself out too. I don’t think. I’m not gonna have you wandering around these grounds unfettered and flip toward me gladly. As soon as I personally see you out the door myself. And we will be going through the front door, Joe.

Yeah, no, that sounds, that sounds lovely. I think she’d like that.

No. I can’t believe that we’re planning our funeral now. Yeah. Surreal. I know, dad. Thank you. I love you too.

Oh, oh. Bella, I was so sorry to hear about your mom. Thank you, Paulina. And I just spoke to my sister, Tammy earlier. Your your mom’s old college roommate. She’s devastated like all of us. She sends a love to you and to all your family.

What? You don’t have a gym in this mazz. Sadly we do not. Victor thinks exercise is a waste of time. He doesn’t like to break a sweat. I see. So what’s up? Surely you didn’t come by here to Just to watch me pump iron. Mm-hmm. Sorry for the blow. True ego, but no, I did not. Besides how would I even know that’s what you’d be doing?

Good point. Yeah. I came to drop by Henry off to see his uncle Will. But I’m actually really glad that I ran into you. I wanted to apologize. Apologize. For what happened last night at my place.

Another threesome. Oof. Yes. And uh, Allie wanted it to happen again. Yes, but the only reason she said that was because she wanted to get back at me because we almost. She was so upset with me, and then I tried to talk to her about it again, and then we got into this huge fight.

Oh, sweetheart, you don’t know anything about me or about me and ej. All right. Okay. All right. No, you’re right. I don’t, but as previously established before, I, I do happen to know Eric and rather intimately. And I know that he, he doesn’t want you, so I think it’s best for all parties involved. If you stop being so desperate, throwing yourself up.

All right. Oh God, it’s not the both of you. Oh

God. Eric, you know what? I know you’re craving and maybe that’s what’s affecting your judgment, but there is no excuse for the horrible person that you’ve become. And if you ever break whatever spell you’re under, I have no doubt that you will regret laying eyes or any other body part on her. She’s a lot, some awful bitch.

I’m really sorry about your mother.

Finally, peace, quiet.

Where did you disappear to? No, rather, I don’t blame you. If I had a happy like that stalking you. I disappeared too. Step I just, you can come out now.

Thanks. We do for love,

Allie with me. You are never going to have to apologize for offering up a threesome. That is my solemn vow. All right. Very funny, but I dragged you into a fight between me and Chanel. That wasn’t fair. Don’t worry about it Serious. , but keep me on the list for future invitations. Alex, come on,

Did you two make up after I left? To what? No, that’s the thing. We slept in separate beds and then we barely talked this morning. You know, when we did talk, it just led to another fight. Oh, it sucks. I’m sorry to hear that. Yeah, but I did get Chanel to admit one thing. She admitted that when I caught her and Johnny at the hospital.

They were about to kiss. Come on. You and I both know what happened at the hospital. Man. Nothing. Right? I, I, I was upset about my grandma Marlena, and you were just comforting me. Look, I told you, you should just let me talk to Allie. Don’t trust me. You are the last person Allie wants to see right now with me being the one possible exception.

I’m sorry, Chanel, I just, I couldn’t deny it anymore. And then Allie pushed me into a corner and then she forced me to admit that what she thought almost happened almost happened.

My family is here for your family. Anything we can do, please, please let us know. Alina, thank you so much. That means a lot. Well, I don’t wanna keep you. I should be going anywhere. I have to call my attorney who’s dealing with some frivolous litigation. Hello? Well, if you don’t mind me asking, who’s suing you?

Who else? Sloan Peterson. That’s sadistic. Little Wish has slapped me with the civil suit.

You sure you’re okay? Mm-hmm. . This, the blow that your ex gave was superficial, but I gave as good as I got. I’m totally necessary. I was bringing you your phone, Eric, and I appreciate it. Listen, how in return I buy you breakfast. Now you don’t have to do that. No strings attached. Just we are. I mean, I owe you for all the, the beer, the takeout, you know, the visits to your place.

So come on. What did you say? Fine, after today, I could use four.

I assume you went to the office. You okay? No, I’m not. Okay. How fool is what I am. Yeah. I went to see Eric to give him my condolences and, and tell him how sorry I was about his mother and, and then Sloan flew in on her broom bragging to everyone with an earshot that she slept with.

Yeah, Stephan pulled him so we could toast to him taking his place by my side as CO c e o Deir. Congratulations, Stephan. But he seems to have disappeared, so now you and I will toast to Sloane Peterson. Oh, there’s no way in Helen Toast that bitch. You didn’t let me finish. Take it

to Sloan for moving in on the holier than thou hypocrite Eric Brady and to you for moving on from set. Hypocrite. She deserves Soon you deserve better.

Both of them, Johnny and Chanel are sticking to their lame excuse that he was upset about my grandma and she was consoling him. Alex, I’m upset about my grandma too, but you don’t see me making out with the person standing right in front of me. Of course not. Like, I’m not going after Johnny’s girlfriend, but I also can’t cut my brother outta my life forever, especially with everything going on in our family right now.

But I also don’t wanna worry that he’s always gonna be chasing after my girlfriend, and I don’t wanna worry about Chanel betraying me.

That’s it. All right, I’m gonna go find Allie. I’m gonna talk to John. No, wait. Wait, I told you I don’t want you to do that. I know, I know. Okay. But this, this almost kiss, it meant nothing. And whatever something there was, it was on me. All right. Allie needs to know that she’s already used to the idea of me being an insensitive jerk so I can get her past this.

Trust me. And I know my sister Johnny.

I can’t let you take all the blame for this. Yes. Yes, you did lean in to kiss me. That was you, but I didn’t stop it. And if I’m being totally honest with myself in that moment, I didn’t want to.

But then, Everything you did to stop the extradition order and you saved me and my daughter, Sloane, has turned around and filed a civil suit for wrongful death. Paulina, why didn’t you come to me right away? You know what hell I mean after everything you’ve been going through. Oh, well, I appreciate that, but work actually helps me deal with all of it.

Gets my mind off things. Please let me help you and Chan. It’ll help me too. I’m well, I’d be thrilled to add you to the team, but are you sure? I am positive. I like you almost as much as I hate Sloane Peterson. So what do you say? I’d say the feelings. Mutual . Why don’t you, uh, let me treat you to breakfast.

We’ll talk strategy about how to take that off a lady now.

You were right. I told you I’d make a mean pancake. No, about Nicole. Provoking Nicole. Um, it was a mistake. Oh, that, I know I shouldn’t be looking for trouble, but she just makes it so easy to get under her skin and knock her off balance. And I hate to admit it, but maybe I am a little jealous. Oh, you were a little jealous, huh?

Well, it’s very clear that she still has feelings for you. Sloan, but what’s not clear is Eric, do you still have feelings for her?

How are you feeling? Any better? Yes, I’m feeling much better. Thank you. So you want to tell me what happened between you and Ms. Sloan Peterson? That woman is beyond smug. . Okay. So she saw me hugging Eric, and I really was just consoling him. Look, I’ve known him for half my life. She’s known him for what?

Five minutes. She harassed you for hugging her boyfriend Eric. Hugging. Eric, sorry. She went to the pub to give him his. and instead of handing it to him like an adult and excusing herself, she used it as an opportunity to gloat about how he’s a another notch on her bed post. And she made an uncomfortable situation even worse by making lewd and inappropriate insinuations about.

About, about us, you and me. Oh,

uh, Nicole. Maybe that’s, we’re doing a little bit. Ooh. Hmm. I can hold my liquor.


Who did this? Who are you?

That would be me.

All right, Alex. Now I know I’m the last person to give any type of relationship advice. Because the one serious relationship I had or that wanted to have, I found every which way possible to ruin it. But I’ve seen you and Chanel together more than most people, probably more than anybody ever really think about it.

But you going, the point is, I have seen you and Chanel together. I see how much she loves you. She adores you and that’s why she chose to be with you over Johnny. Her and Johnny were married. They were married. They’re not married anymore. Okay? So please listen to me. You are beautiful. You were smart, you’re funny, and you’re way hotter than your brother.

I always thought So , that is so, that is a fact. You can e in stone. That is never. Probably the hottest girl I’ve ever been with, and I’ve been with a lot of girls. Is that weird to say? Yeah. Oh no. You know what? No, that actually, that actually makes me feel a lot better. Well, good. Very good. So why don’t you go home and make up with your girlfriend

you wanted to kiss. Maybe I shouldn’t have said that, but in that moment, I just look, I, I love Allie and I am totally committed to her, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still feel something for you.

Well, um, you know, I, I loved you once too.

So then, uh, what are we gonna do about this lingering attraction?

There’s always going to. Some sort of connection between me and Nicole. There always will be. You know, we’ve had enough chances to make it right. We’ve had more than enough chances to make it right. We never did, and even will, if we were in court, I would ask the judge to instruct the witness to answer the question, which was, do you still have feelings for Nicole?

I don’t see how anyone could have an appetite in this pub. With you sitting here, you better get used to my presence, Ms. Price. After all, we’re gonna be stuck in a courtroom together very soon. Speaking of which, I can’t wait to see what Joker you hired to argue your daughter’s defense. And yours. Oh, well, the weight is over, Ms.

Peterson. I am the joker who’s already beat you once and well, I could beat you again with my hands tied behind my back,

just, just bleeding the call. I’ll have Harold clean it up. Oh gosh. I, uh, I don’t know what happened. I just got a bit oozy there for a second, but I’m fine now.

Oh God. I just hate that. I let that bitch get me so upset, Nicole. Don’t give her that power over you. She’s a cold-blooded lawyer. She knows exactly how to elicit an emotional reaction from you and throw you off ballots. It’s her job.

You’re right. I, I certainly just don’t wanna give her the satisfaction of getting me upset and getting to me. I,

but on the other hand, Why should I deny myself the satisfaction of going over there and ripping every little hair on of her head? Well far be from me to tell someone to deny the Docker impulses. But Nicole,

Nicole, let’s, let’s, let’s, let’s get you upstairs. Let’s get you upstairs.

Ah, my head is killing me. Psycho. I’m sorry. I, I’m, I didn’t wanna hit you so hard on your head, but it’s fine. We know that there isn’t gonna be any permanent damage. Us. We both know how thick your skull is. You crazy. Hey, you know, I’m not the one here with the mental problems, and since you already told me that you no longer wanna find Ralph to undo some mental problems, I, I felt that desperate action was required because I’m not giving up on us.

Okay. Maybe we should open up discussions again about . Nice tray, smart guy. Listen, you’re not gonna get out of it this time, whether you liked it or not. We’re gonna fix that thick skull of yours and then, then we’re gonna see where your heart lies.

There you go. Better? Yes, it’s much better. Just lie down and rest. Stay with you if you’d like. Thank you, ej. I just. I think I’m just gonna lie down for a minute. I, I usually hold my liquor with the best of what’s

is nothing.

You’re a smart. Dynamic and

very beautiful woman.

Eric Grady is a fool. He never should have let you go.

What is your problem, Eric? Our mother just died and you’re, you’re just here hanging out with her. All right. Why don’t you not question me or my decisions, and I won’t question why you’re out. Ambulance chasing ambulance. Where’s there an ambulance? This is an, this is an attack on good people and a frivolous lawsuit with absolutely no merit whatsoever.

Why don’t you stop grandstanding and say it for the c. I’m not on the jury, but I’ve seen enough to know that you are on the wrong side of this. Sloan is an injured party here, and having lost the mother too soon, I can relate. And so should you stunt irreparable harm to Sloan, not the other way around.

Chanel took her mother away and Paulina covered it up. It’s in the story.

Ah, nice friends for you. If you want aspirin, are you out of your mind? First off, I will never, ever ingest anything from you as long as I live. Secondly, I’m timing. Lemme go. Okay, stop. It’s my turn. Now. First of all, settle down. Second of all, it’s just aspirin, Stephan. Okay? If I’m not gonna. Oh, you are unbelievable.

Thank you. See this. This is exactly why I abandoned any, any possibility, however, slim of ever getting back with you, your psychotic drive to take what you want in your incessant need to get your way, you know, step and fall. Actually, you don’t know because Rolf scrub your brain, but all the reasons that you’ve given me for not wanting to be with me.

Are there reasons why couldn’t live without me? My relentlessness, my, my passion, my drive, my desire to, to fight for what is mine, to defend what I think is mine. That’s what you loved about me. You couldn’t get enough. Oh, right. So then I should be forced to be someone I’m not against. My will is, To undergo some weird experimental therapy to re brainwash me so I can start feeling feelings that I don’t feel anymore or love Stephan for the love that I know is in there.

The love that was taken away from you. Es your will. Okay, Gabby, listen up. I don’t want to be with you and I never will. I know that you believe that. It hurts me to hear you say this, but I know it’s the brainwashing talking, and I know you don’t wanna be tied to this chair, but I had no option. We’re gonna get through this together, and once it’s done, you’re gonna see that it was all worth it, I promise.

How Gabby, how is this gonna work? Huh? Marlena is dead. Rolf has disappeared. Your husband Lee ought of that. So without Rolf the only person who can undo his own handiwork, I don’t see how I look. You’re right about one thing. My love. Yes. We don’t know where. But as you just said, we do know somebody who does.

Hi Lee, it’s Gabby. I really need to see you.

What? Well, normally I would just ghost you, but. , seeing as I’m in love with your twin sister. I don’t really see that happening. And really I prefer not to be ghosted regardless of how complicated this may be, fair. So I guess we’ll just have to be a little more careful around each other from now on, and I promise not to lean in anymore deal, and I promise not to lean back or not to lean away.

or no, not to lean into Well, you get the picture. Yeah. So what’s the deal?

I really care about you Shael, and I really care about my sister and we were able to overcome this little triangle we had a while back. And I don’t want to come between the two of you again. Besides, I think this thing with Wendy could be, uh, could be really. I’m happy for you. I’m happy for you too and for Allie.

Um, look, I know you guys are gonna figure this out. Okay. Thanks.

Normally I would defend my daughter to the death and put ignorant, mean-spirited people in their place. But out of respect for your mama, I’m not going to do that. Let’s just go to Julie’s place instead. Oh,

maybe I should get going myself. What? Why? It turns out these breakfast benefits aren’t really that beneficial first, Nicole, and now. I don’t wanna be the person that comes between you and your sister, please. It’s nothing that I can’t handle science. I like having you around.

Thank you for saying that, ej. That’s always nice to.

Especially these days,

and you know, you are, uh, you’re right about Sloan. I mean, I, I don’t need to go over there and engage with Sloan. It’s exactly what she wants. Why should I give into. You shouldn’t.

You know what? It’s a hell with Eric Sloan can have him. I don’t need him anymore.

I wanna have you.

Tucker: Ah. Thank you. Hey, daniel.

Daniel: Tucker mccall. Yeah, I heard you were back in town. I’m sure that so many just love having you here.

Tucker: [ Chuckles ]

Daniel: How’s the reception been?

Tucker: Nice to see you, too.

Daniel: [ Chuckles ]

Tucker: Actually, the timing couldn’t be better.

Daniel: Why is that?

Tucker: Oh, I’ve been hearing great things about your new gaming venture. I must say, it sounds intriguing.

Daniel: Really?

Tucker: Mm-hmm.

Daniel: What have you heard and from whom?

Tucker: Mm. Word around town, you know. Plus, I had an interesting conversation with your mom about it.

Daniel: Hmm. Yeah, well, my mom can’t help but brag about my new idea.

Tucker: Mm.

Daniel: Still in the very early stages, though, so got to be protective of my intellectual property. I’m sure if anyone can understand that, it’s you.

Tucker: She didn’t divulge any secrets or anything. But I did gather that you are looking for a new backer. So, as long as we’re here, why don’t you let me refill your coffee and — and make you a pitch as to why that backer should be me?

Audra: Regina is a fireball. I told you she knows her stuff.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] And you. You said all the right things to get her on board with helping us to launch our showcast initiative.

Audra: You were pretty savvy, too, nailing a few of the key details that, you know, could be beneficial to newman media if the deal goes through. I think we just might have hooked her.

Nate: I got that sense, too.

[ Chuckles ]

Audra: Listen, I appreciate you giving me the chance to dive in like this.

Nate: Of course. That’s the kind of collaboration I want to see around here. Speaking of which, I have a meeting now that I’d like you to sit in on. It’s with daniel romalotti. He has a new gaming concept that sounds like it might be promising.

Phyllis: Hey. I’m a little early. Is that okay?

Nate: Of course. Of course. Come in.

Phyllis: Okay, great.

Nate: I asked my new coo, audra charles, to sit in on this pitch. Audra, this is phyllis summers, daniel romalotti’s mother. She set this meeting up.

Phyllis: Nice to meet you.

Audra: Hi.

Phyllis: Hi. Um… uh, well, alright. Well, I am ready. Uh, shall we proceed?

Nate: Don’t we need to wait for daniel? You told me this was your son’s project. I was expecting to hear his vision directly.

Lily: Great. Sounds like we have a deal then. Okay, well, let’s follow up tomorrow. Alright. Bye. Oh. Thank you. Hi.

Billy: Just like you, multitasking, of course.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Yes, always. Well, thank you for the assist.

Billy: Yeah. There was a time that that was my job, right? Make sure that your day ran smoothly.

Lily: Yes. When you were my coo.

Billy: That, too.

Sally: I know, chloe. I cannot believe that jill did that to us, either. I mean, we came all this way to meet her, and she just canceled on us with no explanation? I mean, who does that?

[ Scoffs ] Right. Yes. No. Jill does that. Yeah, I think I’m gonna stay in L.A. For a little while. I don’t know. Maybe she’ll change her mind, or maybe I’ll just barge in her office and give her a piece of my mind.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. I mean, it sounds like a lot of fun.

[ Chuckles ] Alright. Yeah, I will, uh — I’ll let you know how it goes. Alright. Bye.

[ Sighs ]

Nick: Sally, I’ve been through this a few times. Is there a chance this is morning sickness?

Sally: I just didn’t want to say anything until I was sure.

Nick: Are you sure?

Sally: I’m pregnant.

Sally: [ Breathes deeply ]

[ Exhales heavily ] Okay.

[ Breathes deeply ]

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Sally: S’up?

Nick: S’up? I, um — I just wanted to let you know I was thinking about you.

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Diane: Are you as happy as i am right now?

Jack: How could I not be? Everything feels so right.

Diane: Yeah.

Jack: What is that smile on your face all about?

Diane: [ Laughs ] Oh, I bet you can guess.

Jack: Yeah, probably the same thing that put a smile on my face this morning.

Diane: Mm. Wait, jack. We — we really shouldn’T.

It’s the most wonderful

time of the year.

Summer: Good morning. Diane, you’re here awfully early.

Jack: Because she spent the night…again.

Kyle: Really? Why? Are you still worried about mom’s safety? Does that mean harrison’s in danger also?

Jack: No, no, nothing to worry about. Stark is still being held without bail. Our plan worked. We are all safe from that criminal.

Kyle: Well, that’s a relief.

Jack: There’s something the two of you should know.

Kyle: Good news for a change, I hope?

Jack: We think it is, yes. Hopefully you’ll agree. Um, my relationship with diane has taken a turn… romantically speaking.

Sally: So, you were thinking of me here in L.A. And didn’t want to send a text like a normal person?

Nick: Me? No way. I’m old school. I wanted to hear your voice. In fact, I’m so old school, I’m calling you from a rotary phone built in 1973.

Sally: [ Laughs ]

[ Groans ]

Nick: Hey, what’s that groan about? Is that because of the joke, or are you still having morning sickness?

Sally: A little of both.

Nick: You okay?

Sally: Yeah. I’m actually doing better than last week. I’m just a little shaky this morning.

Nick: Well, you might also just be a little nervous because you’re meeting with jill. Sally, you and chloe — you’re prepared. You’re going to kill it.

Sally: Yeah. We’ve been working hard. Uh…I’m just a little distracted. I’m sure you are, too.

Nick: Yeah. It’s, uh — it’s been on my mind a lot.

Sally: I’m sorry.

Nick: For what?

Sally: Well, I feel like i just dropped this huge news on you and then I just a minute later jumped on a plane to california.

Nick: No, I don’t want you to worry about that, alright? You’re the one who has a lot on your plate right now. Speaking of which, are you eating healthy?

Sally: Yes.

Nick: Okay. Also getting a lot of rest, drinking water, taking your vitamins?

Sally: Yes, yes, and yes, dr. Newman.

Nick: Good — ’cause that’s all you should be worrying about right now, is taking care of yourself and the baby.

Sally: Oh, is that all I have to worry about?

Nick: Well, the baby and your meeting with jill.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: Uh, well, you know, daniel and I are partners. Um, he’s the creative, and i handle all business matters. Um, so I’m just here as, um, the advance team, um, here to gauge interest.

Nate: I see.

Phyllis: Yeah. And if this goes well and you are, in fact, interested, I’ll set up a meeting with daniel.

Nate: Okay.

Phyllis: Okay?

Nate: Proceed.

Phyllis: Yeah. Okay. Well…how do I start? My son has created a new gaming platform. It’s, uh, innovative. It’s obviously creative. It’s — it’s gonna change gaming, quite honestly. And it has the potential to be incredibly lucrative. It appeals to adults and young people alike. Not only that — it is emotionally and psychologically productive.

Nate: I sense a mother’s pride.

Phyllis: Well, I mean, of course, but, I mean, you know I’m a gamer, right? So I know when something works and when something is good. I mean, I wouldn’t be here if i wasn’t passionate about this project.

Nate: Well, your enthusiasm is contagious.

Phyllis: Oh, thank you. Thank you. Well, it is a game changer, pun intended.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] I get it. And I love what I hear.

Audra: If this is as good as you say it is, I’m guessing there are other corporations interested. Are we the first to hear this pitch, or are you trying to start a bidding war?

Daniel: Are you really serious about this?

Tucker: I wouldn’t be sitting here with you wasting my time or yours if I wasn’T.

Daniel: Do you know any of the details about my project?

Tucker: I know enough. And I’m pretty sure mccall is a match in a lot of ways. Why don’t you tell me more about what you’re looking for?

Daniel: Deep pockets, creative freedom.

Tucker: Of course.

Daniel: But you obviously heard enough from your conversation with my mother to be interested already. So, why don’t we just skip to the part where you dazzle me? I’d like to thank our sponsor liberty mutual.

Phyllis: You both know how the gaming field works, right? Usually when there’s a lot of interest about a project, yeah, people talk and it becomes a hot commodity. So, that’s why I came to you. I, you know, just wanted to make sure that you wanted in quickly, on the ground floor.

Nate: Well, look, um, I pride myself on being bold and decisive, but before I can make a move on an investment of this magnitude, I would have to have further discussions with daniel involved.

Audra: I agree with nate. I would like to hear from someone other than the creative’s proud mother before making an investment.

Phyllis: Great. Well, I will set up a meeting with daniel, but that’s why I’m here. He’s the creative, and creative geniuses — they need their energy and their time protected. And that’s what I do. I protect him, so… well, if there’s truly interest in daniel’s project, then I will set up a meeting with him. Thank you for your time.

Nate: Thank you, phyllis.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Nate: I like what I heard. But I get the feeling you’re somewhat reticent.

Tucker: I heard that you got the venture set up at chancellor-winters, but that phyllis has also pitched it to newman. If creative control is what you’re after, both those companies are a very bad fit.

Daniel: How would you know that?

Tucker: I know how the newmans work. And I know jill very well. So, if you think you’re gonna have any autonomy at either of those places, think again. I, on the other hand — I know how you’re feeling. I know — I know the hunger and the drive you have. I know what it’s like to build something from nothing ’cause I’ve lived that. There’s a sense of ownership, that it’s hard to let go of, right?

Daniel: Mm. Well, this is more than, you know, just being about ownership or ego. My platform isn’t just a game. It has a bolder mission to transform people’s lives.

Tucker: Terrific. As someone whose, uh, spiritual soul was reborn at an ashram, I can get behind any platform that’s, uh, life-affirming, as well as entertaining and, uh, lucrative. Hey, I got to tell you, I did a little research on you. Um, it’s led to a couple assumptions.

Daniel: Like what?

Tucker: Well, I know that your partner and daughter are now living in portugal. Is that right?

Daniel: That’s right.

Tucker: Yeah.

Daniel: I’m not really sure how details of my personal life are really any of your business. But you know what? You want to know what I’m looking for in a corporate partner? It’s, um… it’s one who doesn’t pry where he’s not welcome.

Sally: You know, if chloe and I make a deal with chancellor-winters, I might have to move out here.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Really?

Sally: I mean, it’s a possibility. How would you feel about that?

Nick: Um, I guess the, uh — the bigger question is, how would you feel about that? Could you live there again?

Sally: I mean, it’s nice when the sun is shining. And it’s always shining. It’s vibrant and exciting. It might be the best thing for me, professionally.

Nick: Well, if that is the best thing for you, sally, then, um…we’ll make it work.

Sally: So, you would support me if I had to pack up and move back to california?

Nick: I would.

Nick: But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, alright? You and chloe still need to make your pitch, and then we will take it from there. But whatever happens, I will support your decision. We’re gonna make this work, sally.

Sally: You’re right. Yeah. We will make it work.

[ Chuckles ] And I’m not moving back to los angeles. I feel like genoa city is my home. I belong there… with you.

Nick: [ Sighs ]

Billy: I’ve been thinking about you. How did everything go with devon?

Lily: Well, I would love nothing more than to talk shop with you…

Billy: Ah, yeah.

Lily: …’Cause I really miss those days. But I think I shared a little more than I should have.

Billy: You always led with integrity. Just one of the things that i admire about you.

Lily: How are you? Have you figured out your next life move?

[ Both chuckle ]

Billy: No. No. But that shouldn’t come as a surprise to you. Although I do have a few ideas that I miss running by you, too.

Lily: [ Chuckles ]

Billy: What do you say? You want to grab coffee? We can talk about anything but chancellor-winters. That’s me before dawn powerwash.

Lily: I would love to. I — I really would. But I have such a crazy day ahead of me.

Billy: Hey, it’s okay. No problem.

Lily: But thank you for helping me with my coat.

[ Both laugh ] And for understanding what I can and can’t talk about right now. But, listen, I’m sure if you call jill, she will give you an earful. I just — I don’t feel like it’s my place.

Billy: Yeah, that’s what I’m worried about. I’m actually gonna steer clear of my mother right now. I don’t feel like putting myself in the line of fire.

Lily: I hope you know that nothing I’m dealing with at chancellor winters is because of you.

Billy: Thank you. Appreciate that. And I’m sorry about everything you’re going through. But I do know that you’ll figure it out.

Lily: Thank you. I hope you find what you’re looking for, too. Bye.

Billy: Yeah. Bye.

Diane: How do you feel about this? I know there’s been a lot going on around here, and, well, this is another change to take in.

Kyle: We wondered if this might be coming. We’ve seen the signs of the two of you growing closer, but to be honest, we never thought it would actually happen.

Diane: Well, it kind of took us by surprise, as well. Look, I-I want you to know this was not my intention. I came back to town solely for the purpose of connecting with you. I mean, I never expected jack to forgive me for the past. But, kyle, you know more than anyone what a special man your father is. And I’m beyond grateful that he was able to appreciate the changes that I’ve made in my life, changes I’ve made for you.

Jack: Look, it may be premature to analyze all this right now, but I thought it was very important that you and summer both know. The last thing I want is for diane to feel she has to sneak around. She’s every bit as welcome here as you are. She’s family.

Kyle: I-I don’t know how i feel about all this. So I apologize if I’m not ready to fully embrace the idea of the two of you being back together. But you two seem happy. And of course I’m all for that.

Jack: I’d like to think you could be pleased for us. That’s all I can ask. Oh, and to your point — yes, we are very happy.

Summer: Okay. Well, um, kyle and I actually have to get going. We’ve got that, um, breakfast meeting that we’ve got to get to, remember?

Kyle: Right, right. Um… we’ll see you later.

Jack: Yeah.

Diane: [ Sighs ] I don’t think kyle was very pleased at all.

Audra: Daniel already has his project set up at chancellor-winters. I wasn’t privy to the details of the deal since it wasn’t pertaining directly to the ipo, but lily and devon talked of plans of building an entire gaming division around his idea.

Nate: Then why is phyllis coming to us?

Audra: [ Scoffs ] It doesn’t make any sense. Unless, you know, she and daniel are double-crossing lily and devon or trying to inflate their offer with a counteroffer.

Nate: Or…things are in flux at chancellor-winters. I’ve heard enough to be interested, but I don’t want to waste my time on it if we’re being used in some sort of chess match.

Audra: And I have to wonder about phyllis’ involvement. She strikes me as a bit of a loose cannon. But whatever it is, I am confident we can get to the bottom of this.

Tucker: If you feel i overstepped, I apologize. I certainly didn’t mean to be intrusive by looking into your personal life. I just feel like it’s — it’s important to understand the whole person, you know, their state of mind, especially people that I might be doing business with.

Daniel: And you think by digging up dirt on my family, you can do that?

Tucker: [ Clears throat ] Well, I’ve come to believe that it’s nearly impossible, if not impossible, to separate the personal from the professional. And so, given your circumstances with your family, um, there’s bound to be some sadness and some feelings of loss. So, that might affect your decision making. But, hey, I’ve been alienated from family, as well. And, uh, unfortunately, it was due to my own actions. But I know that, at the same time, that pain you feel from the past can be a strong motivator to set things right. Really, all I’m saying is I can tell that, for you, this venture is not about money. It’s not about subscriptions. It’s about trying to do something meaningful, important for you and your family, and showing to them that you can learn from your mistakes. And that’s — pfft. That’s what I am all about these days. So I would like to help you achieve that goal. I think together we could really achieve something meaningful.

Lily: Hello.

Tucker: Hello.

Lily: Sorry to interrupt. I just — I happened to hear your not-so-subtle pitch. Well, I’m sorry to disappoint you. I don’t know if you knew this, but daniel’s actually under a contract with me. Trelegy for copd.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.


Kyle: Thanks. Two coffees, please. I’ve got to admit, I was pretty thrown, even more than I let on.

Summer: [ Sighs ] I guess my mom was right. Diane’s had her sights on jack all along.

Kyle: You think my mom came back for him?

Summer: No, of course not. She came back to reconnect with you. Her love for you and harrison isn’t in question, but you got to admit, reuniting with jack is a perk.

Kyle: I know, in theory, kids are supposed to want their parents to get back together, but given their history, i just — I can’t root for that.

Summer: Yeah, every time my parents reconnect, they end up crashing and burning. So I understand. On the other hand, diane is a bit of a step up from the last woman your dad fell for — sally spectra.

Kyle: Yeah, that’s an extremely low bar to clear. And my dad’s way more invested in my mom. So, if things fall apart, he’ll be devastated. I just wish they’d kept things platonic.

Summer: That would have been a lot more simple for everyone. I guess, even after all this time, they still have chemistry.

Kyle: Maybe it was inevitable, given everything they’ve been through since my mom came back to town, bonding over being parents and grandparents to working together to get rid of this threat with stark. I saw the signs, but, still, this is too fast.

Summer: It’s possible that the adrenaline from pulling off that caper against stark actually escalated things. There’s nothing more intoxicating than a little danger.

Diane: You know, I just feel like I’d already lost so much ground with kyle after this whole jeremy stark mess that he’s become wary of my motives. I just get the feeling that he’s afraid that I’m going to hurt you again. And I hate that.

Jack: I just wish he could know I would never be standing here if I thought there was any chance of that.

Diane: Jack, I want you to know that I would never do anything to drive you away again.

Jack: Oh, god —

Diane: No, after everything I’ve been through and — and all those years, I — I know what it’s like to lose you. And kyle. To be alone. And I will — I will never put myself at risk for that again.

Billy: Hey, you two. Sorry to interrupt, but I was just hoping that you could clear something up for me.

Kyle: What?

Billy: Jeremy stark’s arrest. How did that come about?

Kyle: Apparently, he stole a necklace from victor and nikki’s apartment in chicago. The police found his prints there and since he was already in the database it was easy to locate him here and now he’s back in jail where he can’t threaten my mother or anyone else again.

Billy: Well, that’s good. But it does seem odd, doesn’t it? I mean, everything I’m reading about the guy, he sounds like a high-stakes money launderer, and then he gets busted stealing jewelry?

Kyle: I guess his time in federal prison made him a more diversified criminal.

Billy: Well, if he didn’t learn the first time, I doubt he will the second time. Good to see you both.

Kyle: See you.

Tucker: Yes, I’m aware that daniel is set up at chancellor-winters. But, uh, apparently there’s some kind of snag with your intended ipo that’s holding things up? Certainly you didn’t expect your up-and-coming ventures to just sit around in limbo while you try to fix your company’s problem.

Lily: Well, I don’t know if you forgot, but you’re actually responsible for those snags and problems. You planted audra in our office, tried to take over our company. Remember that? And then devon figured it out. Daniel, this guy is unbelievable. You cannot trust him. He tried to betray his own son. He would have no problem betraying you.

Tucker: There are two sides to every story.

[ Chuckles ] Especially when it comes to family conflicts. Anyway, I will leave you two to it. Please think about what I said. Lily.

Lily: Daniel, you’re not actually thinking about breaking our contract to go with tucker, are you? Because that would be a huge mistake. Age-related macular degeneration may lead to severe vision loss.

Lily: Daniel, I thought that you had faith in me, that I want to make omega sphere real.

Daniel: Yeah. No, I do. I don’t want to back out of our deal. Look, the holdup’s making me nervous, and I am anxious to move forward for a lot of reasons, all of which you already know. And I did not seek out tucker. The man came to me.

Lily: How did he even know to come to you?

Daniel: Apparently, my mother put a bug in his ear, something which I’m really not too happy about.

Lily: Oh, my god. Please tell me you didn’t buy anything that he was saying. He is such a snake. I am telling you.

Daniel: No, no, no, I get it. I mean, you’ve made how you feel about the guy perfectly clear.

Lily: Look, daniel, I — i know why you want to make this launch happen quickly. I know — ’cause you want to show heather and lucy that you have turned your life around. I get that. And I want to make that happen for you.

Daniel: I believe you.

Lily: But you know that i can’t move forward with any projects until we figure out this thing with the ipo. You know that.

Daniel: Honestly, that’s what’s been making me so nervous. You know, it’s like I want nothing more than to move forward on this with you, but —

Lily: Look, daniel [Sighs] I know this is important to you, okay? And I want to make this happen. So I’m gonna make you a deal, okay? Give me one week. One week to make this happen. And I promise you, if I don’t, I’ll let you out of your contract.

Tucker: Hi, phyllis.

Phyllis: Tucker.

Tucker: Hey, I just had a very interesting and productive conversation with your son.

Phyllis: Did you?

Tucker: I did. And the good news is he sees the wisdom in bringing me aboard.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I told you to keep away from my son. You went behind my back.

Tucker: Didn’t you go behind his back to pitch the business to newman media? Daniel tried to hide it, but i could tell he had no idea.

Phyllis: Stay away from my son. I mean it. Neither my son nor I want anything to do with you, business-wise, at all. And I’ll take the next one, by the way.

Tucker: Alright. You should talk to daniel about that because you might get a different perspective. As far as I know, uh, it’s his project and you’re just along for the ride.

Audra: I know.

Lily: Ohh. Well, look what we have here — the ceo and coo of newman media. I’m so happy you two landed on your feet. That’s amazing. Clearly, the company you work for has questionable business ethics.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] Daniel, I liked what I heard from phyllis about your new gaming venture. I am eager to hear from you directly about your —

Lily: Wait, I’m sorry. You are talking to tucker and you have your mom talking to nate?

Daniel: Hold on. I had nothing to do with any meeting at newman media. She obviously acted on her own and quite prematurely.

Audra: I thought something seemed off.

Daniel: [ Sighs heavily ] You know, I’m really sorry that my mother wasted your time. Um, I’ll make sure that she’s better informed about my goals in the future. I’m gonna check in with you later.

Nate: [ Sighs ]

Kyle: Stark is in jail, but the trouble he’s caused still lingers. Billy’s clearly not buying the story. Neither do nikki or chance. How long till all this falls apart?

Summer: This is why I said that plan was a mistake from the get-go, but no one wanted to listen to me.

Kyle: Mm. I know your feelings on the matter. And if you hadn’t insisted i stay out of it, maybe I could have helped my parents come up with a better solution.

Summer: You really think getting involved would be a better option? You should be thanking me for keeping you out of it.

Kyle: Come on, summer. I — [ Sighs ] I don’t want to argue. This has been a stressful enough time for all of us. Hopefully, no one will press us on the details of the cover story and we can all put this in the past.

Summer: I couldn’t agree more. There’s nothing I would love better than to go back to leading marchetti and enjoying married life with our wonderful son. No more family plotting. Which reminds me — have you made a decision yet?

Kyle: About victor?

Summer: Yes. And his plan to enlist you in forcing adam to fail at jabot? Please tell me that you turned him down.

Nick: You can do this. You and chloe are gonna get in that room with jill and you’re going to dazzle her. You got a great idea. You are ready. She wants to work with you. This is a slam dunk.

Sally: What are you, like, a part-time cheerleader?

Nick: Hey, if that’s what you need to get motivated, a rah-rah routine, I can do it. Let’s go. Rah, rah, rah.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] Ah. Alright. You have put me back on the right track.

Nick: You’re gonna do this. You got it?

Sally: I got it. Thanks, nick. I’m really lucky to have you in my life. The baby’s really lucky to have you, too.

Nick: Good luck this morning.

Sally: I’ll be home soon.

[ Sighs ]

Diane: Mmm.

Jack: I could stay here forever.

Diane: Wouldn’t that be nice? We could just stay in this wonderful cocoon, not have to worry about anybody.

Jack: You still worried about kyle?

Diane: I can’t help it.

Jack: I understand your being concerned, but he needs time to process it. He’ll come around.

Diane: You think so?

Jack: I do.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Jack: Hey. I just hate to see worry like this. I will be by your side, making sure he knows how happy we are. Mmm.

[ Both breathe deeply ]

Kyle: All victor wants is to find a way to give adam a little push out of jabot.

Summer: And he wants your help in doing that. You can’t let my grandpa manipulate you this way.

Kyle: Whoa, he’s not manipulating me. I am in the driver’s seat.

Summer: I just can’t believe that you’re still even considering this.

Kyle: I explained my reasoning for that. I would only do it if I was certain I was protected and no one would find out about it — and for those textile mills for marchetti.

Summer: You know, there are other ways to gain control of those, if that is your endgame. But I’m starting to think that you’re just using that as an excuse.

Kyle: What do you think I’m really after then?

Summer: I’m afraid that your hatred for adam is your main motivation. And I would really hate to see you damage your relationship with your father over that.

Kyle: I would only do it if i was sure he wouldn’t find out.

Summer: But no one can guarantee that, not even my grandpa.

Kyle: Okay, you’re right.

Summer: Look, colluding with my grandpa — it’s not a good idea. It’s not likely to end well. And I just would really love to avoid any more drama right now.

Kyle: That’s what I want, too.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Summer: What’s up?

Kyle: Um…nothing important.

[ Knock on door ]

Phyllis: Oh, hey! I’m glad you’re here. Listen, I have a lot to report. Um, but before that, I need to set you straight on something. Or, I should say, set you straight on someone.

Daniel: No. No, actually, I need to set you straight. I know what you did.

Phyllis: What are you talking about?

Daniel: Omega sphere. And while I appreciate that you were trying to help me, you need to stay out of this. I am not risking what I already potentially have with lily and chancellor-winters. You can’t just decide on your own to go and pitch my idea. No, you can’T. We are not partners. You work for me. And once again, I’m questioning why I hired you.

Nate: Have you had a chance to go over anything else about the new podcasts?

Audra: Uh, yeah. So, right now I’m filtering out based on availability and —

Billy: Boy, oh, boy, was i wrong about you. I mean, I really thought you were better than this. I thought you actually cared about your family, but I’m wrong. You have fully embraced the ruthless cliché of the c-suite executive, haven’t you? Backstab your family, jump to newman enterprises, and hire audra. Congratulations. I gave you far too much credit.

Audra: [ Sighs ]

[ Dramatic music ]

Thomas: Look, I am asking you for a favor. You’re a businesswoman and a damn good one at that.

Steffy: Flattery. Really, thomas?

Thomas: Okay. Look, I will be on my best behavior from now on. I promise. The straight and narrow. Steff, I realize I went too far trying to get mom and dad back together, okay? And I even get it if people don’t wanna see me around the office, but I can still contribute. I can save hope for the future.

Hope: You’re asking if I want thomas back on my line?

Paris: Is it something you’d consider?

Hope: Well, should I? Considering that he torpedoed my mother’s marriage and pressured our son into keeping it a secret.

Paris: Thomas also designed the most successful collection hope for the future’s ever produced. I know what that means in this business. I was wondering what it means to you.

Finn: I might have something in here. There. Think this will help your patients feel better?

Kelly: Yes.

Douglas: That’s so cool. Are they real?

Finn: Yeah. Here’s one for you, dr. Spencer. There you go. And one for you, dr. Forrester. Oh, here, try that side.

Douglas: Wow. My heartbeat’s so loud.

Finn: Well, that’s no surprise. Everyone knows you have a good heart, douglas.

[ Knock on the door ]

Finn: Hey!

Liam: Hey.

Kelly: Daddy, look.

Liam: What? What is the– what is the what– what– what’s going on here?

Douglas: Some of kelly’s dolls aren’t feeling well.

Finn: Mm-hmm.

Kelly: I am a doctor.

Liam: Ah, wait a minute. Wait. When I called earlier, you were a chef.

Finn: Yeah. Kelly and douglas made pizza crackers.

Liam: Oh my god. Do you know something? Do you know I love pizza crackers? You’re gonna have to make me some when mom drops you off in a few days. But right now, I’m here for this guy. You ready to go?

Liam: Uh, mr. Douglas, do you have all your stuff ready?

Kelly: Do you have to go?

Douglas: Can I stay just a little longer? I’m just checking up on kelly’s stuffed animals?

Liam: Uh, yeah. It’s okay with me if it’s okay with finn. Give us a chance to catch up.

Finn: Yeah.

Douglas: Thanks. Come on, kelly.

Liam: Well, look at you.

[ Finn chuckling ]

Finn: They’re amazing kids.

Liam: Yeah, they are.

Finn: Douglas seems happy being back with you, hope and beth.

Liam: We’re happy to have him back. I really, really missed him. And I love him just as much as I do beth or kelly. I know you know something about that. You’re an amazing stepdad. Kelly adores you.

Finn: Oh, douglas feels the same about you.

Liam: Yeah. Yeah. I think I just want him to feel supported ’cause he’s never been able to count on that from thomas. And it’s not easy being let down by your father.

Hope: Thomas has burned a lot of bridges around here, paris.

Paris: Yeah. After what he did, he’s not gonna find a lot of fans in the building.

Hope: Nope.

Paris: But, he still is one of the most acclaimed designers out there. And if anyone can bring your collection back from the brink…

Hope: Well, while hope for the future is my line, thomas’s role in the company isn’t up to me. That’s for ridge and steffy to decide.

Thomas: I’m sorry, steff. I thought I was helping.

Steffy: Helping? Wow, thomas. Really?

Thomas: Look, I get it. I get it. I wasn’t helping. I was wrong. And I understand that you’re furious. Look, from now on, I’ll just be the perfectly obedient older brother. How about that?

Steffy: I didn’t want you to be obedient, thomas. I wanna be able to rely on you, trust you, your judgment. Do you think I like being at odds with you? I don’T. I hate this. God, I don’t even know what to say to you right now. You want another chance. You want your job back. Well, I want my brother back. The guy that I grew up with who always tried to do the right thing.

Thomas: I’m– I’m sorry, steffy. I know that I have been in the wrong. I haven’t been a good person. And you deserve better than that. You’ve always been so much better than me. I love you, steff. And I wanna be that person for you. I wanna be the rock that you can lean on. And I’m sorry that I haven’t been, but I promise that I will work tirelessly to become that man. Okay? I promise.

Who’s on it with jardiance?

Finn: Douglas is an amazing kid.

Liam: Yeah, he really is. He’s smart, he’s ethical, he’s resilient.

Finn: Especially when you consider everything he’s been through.

Liam: His mom dying so young. Yeah. I mean, that’s not easy. My cousin just adored him. And when caroline died, you know, thomas became his only parent. I hate to think about what his life would’ve been like if hope hadn’t kind of stepped up and become his mother.

Finn: You’re an important part of that too, huh?

Liam: Well, yeah. I am in the sense that he can depend on me. You know, he knows I’m not gonna let him down. I’m not gonna make him question my judgment.

Finn: It’s just, it’s a shame he got caught up in another one of thomas’s schemes.

Liam: Yeah. Well, he– but– but he didn’t though, right? I mean, he knew. Douglas knew that that bogus call to cps was wrong and he wasn’t gonna keep it a secret. And once again, once again, he did the right thing.

Finn: Clearly something his father hasn’t learned.

Liam: Yeah. Really. I mean, if there’s any justice in this world, it’s that thomas will have learned from all this that actions have consequences.

Paris: Thomas has been a big part of hope for the future’s success.

Hope: Oh, I’m not denying that.

Paris: But it isn’t something you could see happening again?

Hope: I don’t– I don’t know, paris. I mean, what do you think? I mean, how do you feel about thomas?

Paris: Thomas is an extremely creative and talented man. He definitely understands what women find appealing.

Hope: Yes. Agreed. But again, his future at the company is, it’s not my call.

Paris: Yeah. All I’m saying is fashion is about breaking rules and pushing boundaries, especially a line like yours. Yes, thomas went too far with trying to get his parents back together. I’d never say otherwise. But that kind of passion is what makes his work so exciting and successful.

Hope: So you want me to take him back?

Paris: I can’t tell you what to do, but I know how deeply you care about this line. You poured your heart into hope for the future. You want it to thrive. Do you think you should talk with steffy and see if both thomas and his collection can get a second chance?

Thomas: Come on, steffy. We’ve hit rough patches before. You’ve been angry with me, but you’ve always been a person who can support me and be in my corner.

Steffy: Why do you always have to make this so damn hard?

Thomas: I’m sorry. And I know what I did was wrong, but I did it for the right reasons.

Steffy: That is no excuse.

Thomas: You’re right. It’s not an excuse. And that’s why I knew, I knew what was coming and I was ready to take my time in exile.

Steffy: Yet here you are.

Thomas: Yeah, because it’s one thing for me to be punished for my actions, but it’s not okay for hope for the future to be punished. Steffy, you read the review. I can make this better, okay? You need me. Hope for the future needs me. I could’ve waited to tell my doctor my heart

Hope: I’ll admit losing thomas from the team has been a blow.

Paris: Yeah. The reviews for the latest collection weren’t the greatest.

Hope: No, they weren’T. Thomas and I, we– we– were good at collaborating with each other. We were wonderful creative partners and I thought that we understood each other. That we had the same vision and goals. But I was wrong. I was wrong. I told everyone that he had changed. I stuck up for him and he let me down. I trusted him with a lot of things that I hold dear, paris. He hurt the people that I love the most. And so, while on the one hand, I swore to never work with thomas again in order to protect my family, in order to do what was best for them. But then, on the other hand, I care about my career. I care about my line and what it means not only to me but to– to the customers around the world. And I have a responsibility to the people that work for me, for this company. So, I don’t know what to do.

Finn: You know, douglas is welcome here anytime.

Liam: See, I really appreciate that.

Finn: And steffy, she was kinda jealous I got to hang out with him. She really loves her nephew.

Liam: Let her be jealous. No, he– he– he loves spending time with all of them.

Finn: It’s great, the way the kids all get along.

Liam: Well, yeah, ’cause that’s family, right? That’s the way family should be. I– I regret the way that douglas came back to hope and me. But man, it’s so nice to have him home. It’s just– it’s just wonderful that we’re all together again.

Finn: I bet.

Liam: And hope and I are trying. You know, we’re– we’re– we’re– we’re doing our best to give him the– the happy, healthy, loving, secure home that he deserves.

Finn: That’s away from thomas.

Thomas: Nobody understands hope’s vision the way I do. You have to see that. The reviewer definitely did.

Steffy: I get your point, thomas. But I don’t think we should be having this conversation right now, especially while dad’s gone.

Thomas: Look, I don’t think you wanna waste too much time on this. Granddad and zende, they’re both amazing designers, obviously, but they have two very different visions. So the collection, it– it– it lacks focus. What are you gonna do? You’re gonna banish me forever? I want to help and I know that I can.

Hope: Steffy, I– thomas.

Thomas: Hope. Uh, I’m glad that you’re here.

Hope: What’s going on?

Thomas: I– I read the review and I– I never wanted what I did to impact your line. So I was thinking that steffy might let me help you with it. I never stopped designing. What I did to your mom was unforgivable and I’m so sorry. And I asked our son to lie. I hurt everyone. But the worst of it is that I hurt you because you believed in me more than anyone else. I never meant to hurt you. And I am asking for another shot, but not just for me. For you and your line.

Hope: Thomas, do you mind if I have a word with your sister alone?

Thomas: Sure. Um, steffy knows how much I want this. And it’s not gonna fix all the problems that I caused, but it might make a big difference for your collection. And I at least owe you that.

Steffy: Hope, I am so sorry. I had no idea he was gonna show up like this.

Hope: Or is it right on time?

Steffy: Hope?

Hope: Steffy, the collection is a mess. I mean, you read that review, no amount of tinkering is going to save it.

Steffy: So what are you saying? Are you asking me to let thomas come back to the company and design for hope for the future? Hey… it’s me! Your dry skin!

Finn: Doctors, how are the patients?

Douglas: Good. Thanks for letting us borrow your stethoscope, uncle finn.

Kelly: Can we use them again?

Finn: Sure.

Douglas: I told kelly I might be able to come back after school tomorrow.

Finn: We might be able to work something out.

Liam: Yeah. Let’s– let’s ask mom when she gets home later. Do you have your jacket?

Douglas: Yep. And the picture kelly made me.

Liam: Oh, come here. Come here. That is beautiful, kel! I love you. I’ll see you later, okay?

Douglas: Thanks for letting me hang out, uncle finn. I had a really good time.

Finn: Hey, you are always welcome here, douglas. Your aunt and I love having you. And I know kelly and hayes feel the same way.

Paris: Thomas?

Thomas: Miss me?

Paris: You are not supposed to be here.

Thomas: Yeah. Well, maybe that’s about to change.

Paris: Maybe. I was just talking with hope and I think she’s considering letting you back on the team.

Thomas: Actually, hope is meeting with my sister right now about that. I think that there’s a real chance I’ll be welcomed back at forrester, specifically hope for the future. They need me.

Steffy: You wanna give thomas his job back?

Hope: Never in a million years did I think I would ever consider it. But this is business. It can’t be personal. As– as much as it infuriates me and as much as I hate feeling conflicted like this, I mean, thomas did target my mother’s marriage to your father. He dragged our son into his manipulations again.

Steffy: But he is not gonna learn anything if we don’t hold him accountable.

Hope: I agree.

Steffy: But you also have your line to consider.

Hope: Exactly. This is a fashion house and we have a lot of people to consider. And as co-ceo, I know you understand that. And look, when it comes to thomas, I trust his talent. But that is as far as it goes for me.

Steffy: I know you’ve floated the idea of thomas designing, but not coming into the office. Is that what you’re suggesting?

Hope: I honestly have no idea what I am suggesting. I don’T.

Steffy: Well, we need to figure out what this means. The message we’re sending thomas. Will we give him a pass, welcome him back with open arms? I mean, the guy has had so many chances, but no real consequences. He didn’t just hurt your mother, but he broke my parents’ heart. He hurt our family.

Hope: He disappointed a lot of people, especially douglas. But we also have to face the fact that thomas and his talent are a very big part of forrester creation success.

Steffy: Are you saying what I think you’re saying? In order for hope for the future to succeed, we need thomas and his designs?

Nina: This looks great. Sonny: Yeah. Thank you. You got to eat. Right. Okay. Let’s see. I little of this.

[ Chuckles ] You know, sonny, I’m sorry. It’s just — it’s — it’s no use because I just — I can’t sit here waiting for the results of my blood work. Not when my daughter’s life depends on me. Nina. I can’t believe I just said that. Nina. It’s all gonna work out. Yeah. I really love you for trying to distract me, but I need to get to the hospital, and I need to go now, okay?

[ Knock on door ] Hey. Hey. She went in the back, so she’s gonna come out. Hi! What are you doing here? Someone told me you can use a friend.

[ Monitor beeping ] Need something else to read? The good news is pashminas are still on trend for 2023. So all is right with the world.

[ Sighs ] Talk to me. This waiting is torture. I’m scared. I’m scared, too. Oh, hold that elevator! Dad? What are you doing here? N’neka, add mr. Bell’s drink to my tab. Generous. You were very effective in the game tonight. That’s what you pay me for. Money well spent. I wasn’t sure you would show, given recent events. My condolences. Now, why would the murder of my almost-girlfriend keep me from fulfilling my obligations? Shall we grab a table? What’s up? I warned cody about that woman. Why do you care what happens to cody? Please don’t ruin the moment. I’m unwinding from the day. What do you want? I’m here because of what you want. The divorce settlement agreement. Congratulations, ava, on getting everything you asked for and I’m losing the only thing that I treasure. Your father may not be the best option to raise the baby, but he’s the only option. Not necessarily. What? What about me?

[ Scoffs ]

[ Chuckles ] I mean, w-what about you? I’m sure you’ll be a good father someday in the far-off future. What if the future wasn’t so distant? You’re saying your father may not be able to raise the baby? I plan on making sure of it. I’m going for custody, trina. I just came to check on wiley. Ah, well, you, um — you just missed him. He went up to the main house with olivia for a sleepover with leo. Oh, that’s great. Yeah. Perfect distraction for him. I just stuck around to, um, lock up. Oh, um…okay. I’ll leave you to it. Hey, carly. Don’t go.

Did sonny tell you? Sonny was kind enough to invite me over, but it was willow who told me. What did she say about me? It’s okay. You don’t have to spare my feelings. Willow is reeling, same as you. I think you’re both struggling to reconcile your history with the news that you’re mother and daughter. You know what? You guys talk ’cause I-I gotta make a phone call. Okay. Let me take your coat. Thanks. Are you hungry? Do, um — do you want something? Sonny’s been taking really good care of me. Oh, looks delicious. Hey, was I keeping you from leaving? It looked like you were going somewhere. Yeah, I was just gonna — I was going to G.H. Because I had a blood test to determine if I was a bone-marrow match with willow. And there’s an outside chance that the lab will have the results in tonight. And the odds are really good that you’re a match, right? A sibling is the best match, but nelle is…gone. Well, let’s hope that you’re a match. I don’t even want to think about what will happen… if I’m not. Dad, just promise me one thing. Hmm. Be nice. I’m always nice. Be nicer.

[ Sighs ] You gave me what I asked for? Spoon island and everything on it? Including wyndemere and all the contents in it. You left me with nothing, ava. Not even my pride. Well, welcome to my world. The whole city knows you knocked up a girl who can’t even legally drink this martini. They didn’t have to know. That wasn’t my plan. It’s never your fault, is it? You’ve lost your son, your wife, your house. Still the excuses. I’m owning my mistakes. Witness that document in front of you. I gave you everything without a fight. It’s easier to own your mistakes when your hand is being forced, isn’t it? My god, you’re so weak. I can’t believe there was a time I didn’t see it. You saw me, ava. And you loved me regardless. Just like I saw you. We beat the odds again and again. After everything we survived, can you really say that the love is gone? You’re gonna try to get full custody of your baby sister or brother? What — what about your father? What about esme? I’m not worried about esme. She’s not fit to parent a child. She doesn’t even know who she is. Yeah, but she might remember.And that would be even worse. Let’s not pretend that either of this baby’s parents are moral, upstanding citizens. They’re far from it.

[ Scoffs ] Some might say the same of you. My father has a proven history of selfishness, immorality, and neglect. Diane miller thinks that I may have a chance. Sounds like you already got your mind made up. I want to do whatever it takes to protect this baby. You’re looking at them again. I know you, mac scorpio. You care about cody. He’s dominique’s son. She’d want me to look after him, whether he was mine or not. You can’t kid a kidder. Oh, mac, you’re such a good man. There’s always room in your heart for more. And I’m not just talking about robin and the girls. But all those rookies that you took under your wing on the force, giving them guidance and counsel. I know how much dante appreciates your mentorship. Cody might, too. Cody’s made it clear that he’s not interested in that. I just want to make sure that he doesn’t get mixed up with the wrong people. And selina wu is definitely the wrong people. I know you weren’t a fan of britt. Dr. Westbourne and i came to an understanding. My nephew’s quite devastated by her loss, as I’d imagine are you. I have sympathy for those grieving. Yeah, bet you’re all choked up. People express emotions many different ways, much like you’re doing now. If you’ll excuse me. Ah. If it isn’t my old friend gladys. So, did wiley ask about his mom? Yeah, there — there were some questions. You know, it was kind of tricky, to be honest. I didn’t want to say more than willow and michael wanted me to share. He’s a smart kid. Did the best I could. Yeah. I’m sure you did great. It’s a fine line, you know? I-it’s tough to know what to tell him at this age. Hmm. It’s a delicate balance, for sure. Yeah. Ultimately, honesty is the way to go. I really thought I was protecting willow. Truly. And look, I know that nina and sonny are determined to believe that this was all about revenge on nina. I don’t think that, carly. I know you came to my defense earlier with sonny. But other than that, you’ve been really quiet on the subject. What do you think?

If anyone knows what an incredible lawyer diane is, it’s me, right? Sure. But your dad has plenty of resources. He’s not giving up custody of his child without a fight. I know. I’m well aware. But I have a secret weapon. Which is…? Ava agrees with me, and she’s going to help. Pause.

[ Scoffs ] You’re telling me ava supports this? Yeah. For the first time, ava and i are actually in agreement that neither my father or esme are fit to parent this child. Oh, that’S…really something. Are you surprised because we agree or because you don’t agree, that is? I mean, it’s not really my place to weigh in. But it is because I’m asking you because I’m curious about what your thoughts are, and your opinion matters to me, trina. Okay. Since you asked… I don’t think you’re ready to be a father. Cody, how’s it going? Mac, felicia. Date night? No, just unwinding. Sorry to hear about britt. How you doing? I’m hanging in…now. Thanks. It’s strange having people ask me how I’m doing. [ Laughs ] Britt and I really didn’t know each other that long. That doesn’t mean you didn’t care about her. I did. And I want to thank you. For what? This lovely lady right here. You sent her to tell me. I thought it might soften the blow. Well, you thought right, and I appreciate it. Hearing you lost someone is hard. Living with it is even harder. I know I should have come to see you immediately after the game, but I had to run to the restroom to, um, collect myself. Tough night, huh? Win some, lose some. Seems you’re losing more and more. And it’s time to cover your debt. I feel like the rug keeps getting pulled out from underneath me. First I had to let go of the idea of you as my daughter. Thank god now you’re my friend. Then I found out that nelle was my daughter after she died. And willow, she’s my child. And it might be too late to have a relationship with her. Don’t say that it’s too late. She hates me.

[ Glass clinks ] Willow is alive, and so are you. It is not too late. Show up for her the way that you showed up for me. Be there and show her the nina that I came to love. And no matter how long or short the time that we have together, it’s precious. And it’s so, so worth it. I want that with all of my heart. But willow has made it very, very clear that she doesn’T. Both she and michael seem hell-bent on punishing me. And sonny.

[ Monitor beeping ] I hope you like them. Ned: We won’t stay long. I’m sure you’ve had lots of visitors. Everyone has been incredibly kind. Chase and sasha stopped by earlier. Sorry. For what? Anyone want anything from the cafeteria? I’ll join you. Boy, you can sure clear out a room, can’t ya?

[ Laughs ] I’m sorry. I did not mean to bring up a sore subject. It’s fine. How are you coping with the breakup? Great. Mostly. Ned, just want to say thank you for coming. It meant a lot to willow. We love willow. You know that. But I didn’t come here just for her. Carly, you — you already explained y-you were trying to protect willow. You didn’t think that she would want to know that nina was her mother. But it wasn’t my secret to keep. And I regret that. And I told michael and willow how sorry I am. Well, that’s good. It’s so important to make amends. But there’s another apology that I owe, and that’s to you. And — and I should have said it sooner. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry that I went behind your back and that I lied to you because the last thing I want is for you not to trust me. Thank you. I mean, if the circumstances were different and willow’s life wasn’t on the line, I-I don’t know if I would regret keeping the truth from nina. I mean, I’m still processing all the pain that she caused my family, especially michael and willow. I never thought that you were obligated to tell nina. You know, that was always willow’s call to make. And I see that now. And I’m so grateful that willow has forgiven me. I’m just wondering, hoping… can you?

And michael may still want to take me down, but she — she did ask me if I would reconcile with — with michael. What? Yeah. You didn’t tell me that. Well, I did– there was a lot going on in a couple of days, you know, so — but I think the situation has motivated her to encourage amends.

[ Chuckles ] How about that? If willow feels that michael and sonny can let go of their past and reconnect, then there’s hope that she would do the same with you. Yeah. Do you think? Maybe things are falling into perspective for her. Yeah, especially if I can give her the bone marrow that she needs. I just — I want to show willow that I will do anything for her. Of course you will.

[ Cellphone rings ] Just give me one second. It’s the lab. It’s — it’s the lab. Alright. Nina reeves. Thank you for getting back to me. Chase and I are in a better place these days. That’s good to know. Even if it’s not what I asked. How do you feel? Only you would be in a hospital bed asking how someone else is doing. Chase is a hard man to forget. Impossible. What do I do? Should I hold out hope or just try to move on? So much of my life these days is about holding out for hope. Keeping the faith. Believing that the impossible is possible. My situation is different. Chase and I, our relationship is not life or death. Feels that way, though, doesn’t it? If you can’t picture your life without chase, don’t give up. Miracles happen every day. I know things are tense between us, and I don’t like being at odds with you, michael. Yeah, ned, none of that matters now. Agreed. What’s important is seeing you and willow through this, which is why I’m here. Because no matter what happens in business, we are, first, foremost, and forever family. Why don’t you join mac and me? I really should be hitting the hay. It was a long night. Yeah. So what have you been doing these days? Keeping busy, huh? This and that. Anything to keep my mind off of…you know. Maxie organized tomorrow’s memorial for britt. Will we see you there? I know my assets aren’t very liquid at the moment, but — but if you stake me again, I will break this losing streak. You’ve exhausted your line of credit. You owe the house $175,000. 175 grand? A-are you sure? Very sure. I’ve got an mba in finance. Really? When can I expect payment? I hold our love in the same esteem you held my dignity. Everything in order? Seems so. What’s the catch? There’s no catch. I just want to do right by you. No counter? Nothing you want from me? Just one thing. Of course. And what is that? I need you to listen. You’re forgetting… I owe you nothing. You owe me. I grant you that. But since you seem to prefer to go through my uncle victor as an intermediary these days, this might be the one last time I get to speak to you directly. Well, unless you can tell me that you didn’t sleep with esme and elizabeth, there really isn’t much to talk about. Things aren’t exactly as they seem. Spencer, I-I don’t think you’re really equipped for this. Financially, maybe, but emotionally? Raising a child takes an insane amount of responsibility, more than we can imagine. Yeah, my uncle sonny said something similar, but how am I supposed to become a more responsible person without first taking on more responsibility? You’d be learning at the expense of the baby. Trina, that is literally how all first-time parents learn. Have you thought about what this will do to your social life? You’re still young, spencer. Being an insta-father will affect your friendships and put a definite crimp in your future relationship. Are you saying that people won’t want to be my friend or be my girlfriend if I’m raising a baby? I’m not saying it’s one way or the other. Some might. Well, what about you? Would you want to be with a man who’s raising a baby?

You consider beingwith a man who’s raising a baby? I mean, well, I-I wouldn’t know the answer to that. I would have to…be in the situation. Fine. But what about the situation that you’re in with me? Is me going after custody of this child going to impact whatever is going on between us? What do you mean “whatever is going on between us”? I just mean that everything, what we’ve been doing with trying to, um, catch the killer by pretending to be friends, potentially even more. I mean, it worked. Didn’t it? Esme showed up and now she’s locked away. I mean, she may not be the killer. But what are we doing, though? Are we playing the game, or is the game playing us? I-I-I don’t really know what you’re asking. Be real, trina. We’re hanging out. There’s no cameras around. We text each other constantly. But we don’t publicize it. It’s a lot of behind-the-scenes effort for pretense, don’t you think? Okay. It may not just be play-acting for me. I, uh — I haven’t decided yet about the memorial. Well, it might be helpful for c-closure. Yeah, I’m not sure I really believe in closure. Felicia only means that facing what you’re really feeling can sometimes set you free. And sometimes just reminds you of all the ways you screwed up. You guys have a nice evening. I don’t have that kind of cash on hand. Then we have a problem. Oh, I know, I know. I-instead of cash, you can take my son’s garage. Are you the owner of the property? Depends on what you mean by “owner.” Everybody makes mistakes, carly. Not you. You’re damn near perfect. I make mistakes all the time. I used to blow through town with a chip on my shoulder. All anybody can hope for is — is forgiveness and — and the chance to make things right. That’s all I want. I just want to make this right somehow. Well, you did the right thing by telling nina, by urging her to get tested. Maybe that’ll make the difference. I pray it does. But what about us? Where do we stand? I can’t do this again, carly. I know I seem like I’m an easygoing guy, but I — I’ve got limits. Right. I understand. And I’m really sorry. In the future, we — we can’t lie to each other anymore. You said “future.” I want one. With you. I can’t promise that it’s gonna be easy. I’m willing to try if you are. I’m ready. I’m willing and able. Will you come home with me?

Cally, the garage belongsto my daughter-in-law, but — but we’re in the process of selling it, so I’ll just cut out the middleman and sign it over to you. I mean, sonny says it’s worth a pretty penny. And your daughter-in-law will consent to this? Oh, yeah. I-I-I have the power to make these decisions for her. I wound up having a nervous breakdown on live television. I’m guessing that’s where the guardianship came in. Yeah. Originally, it was brando. But when he died, his mother, gladys, took over. Wait, your — your mother-in-law’s name is gladys? Why? Well, it’s just, I-I know a woman named gladys, but she’s — she’s probably not your mother-in-law, though. You would know if you met her. She’s pretty memorable. Gladys: My daughter-in-law will be fine with this, especially once I win it back. Do we have a deal? Sorry. I didn’t mean to disrupt your visit with brook lynn, but I thought…you’d want to know tonight. Know what, nina? The lab called me. The results of my blood work are in. And? It’s not a match. Despite our familial dna, I-I don’t have the right markers to be your donor. I’m so sorry. I thought I would be able to end this nightmare for you. I’m not sure anyone can.

[ Monitor beeping ] We — we go through all of that a-and nina is not even a match? Hey, we can’t give up hope. I’m sorry, buddy. It’s gonna be fine. I know. I hurt you. I betrayed our trust. I dishonored our marriage. I’m gonna have to live with that. But one day, you are gonna realize that our marriage was undermined by outside sources. Sources whose names both begin with the letter “e”. You’ve got it wrong. And once the truth is known, I feel confident that you’re gonna see things differently. What do you mean? All I can say is that there’s more to this story. Now, I know I haven’t given you any reason to believe me, but I loved you, ava. And I still do. With all my heart. So you take everything that I have. And one day… all those possessions that I’ve granted you, they’re gonna be ours again. And we’re gonna be married and living in wyndemere, and we’re gonna be in love, in lust and happy. How can you be sure? Because our story isn’t over. One day you’re gonna realize all of the sacrifices I made for what we had. And when that day comes, I’ll be waiting for you. Trina: For the last few weeks, I started to see you in a certain light. Same here. Why didn’t you say anything? Because you burned me. I’m a little sensitive. Fair enough. Um… I hope that you know that — I hope that you know that I’m never going to hurt you again, trina. I do. Which is why I told my mom how I really feel about you. You did? And how’d she take it?

[ Chuckles ] She was concerned, but I-I told her that you’ve grown up. You changed. You think so? That’s very nice of you to have noticed. I do. And I told my mom that I can make my own choices when it comes to you, that you’re my friend. And she doesn’t have a decision on the matter. So we don’t have to pretend anymore. Or — or hide our friendship. Friends. Yeah. And I know I said we weren’t friends, and I-I was just — I was just really hurt. But so much has changed, and you’ve really been there for me. Trusting and steadfast. Like a golden retriever. Not quite. Dogs are obedient. Um… anyway, I just — I really hope that you feel the same way. You have no idea.

[ Sighs ] I have wanted this for months. Me too. Part of me wanted to guard my heart. You know, play it safe. So I didn’t risk the pain of losing you. But then the wiser part of me knew that I couldn’t waste this chance. I know you, carly. You’re not afraid to take a chance. Neither am I.

I really hope that me going after custody of this baby doesn’t change things between us. By that I mean joss and cam and me and you. Me too. Would you please do me a favor and keep everything that I told you here today confidential? I think that diane wants me to keep this quiet for right now. Of course. So you’re determined to do this. With or without anyone’s approval. But it would mean the world to me if I had your support.

[ Sighs ] Well… you know I have my reservations about you taking on this level of responsibility, but… I’m really, really proud of you for stepping up. Thanks. You haven’t seen anything yet, but you will. I’m not like my father. When I make a commitment to someone, I…I stick to it. And I’m ready to do just that.

You can let my one light be my one light habit you can let my one light be my one light habit and it grows, yeah, it grows higher, can’t fight it when it grows, yeah, it grows higher, can’t fight it can’t fight it can’t fight it can’t fight it can’t fight it willow was in such good spirits. I mean, we were teasing each other like always and now this. It’s more than one person should have to bear. I just hate that devastating things keep happening to all the good people in my life.

[ Sniffles ] Willow has so much to live for. She has so many people who love and support her. Chase has to be updated. It’s gonna kill him to hear. Both: I should call him. That, uh, woman you were just talking to right now, the one I took to the cleaners tonight, what’s her last name? Why do you ask? Well, I think gladys and I might have a mutual acquaintance. And if so, I’d like to keep my distance. Corbin. Gladys corbin. She’s also involved with deception. So it would seem. For a minute there, you almost had me. I almost believed you. I nearly fell for your lies again. But believe me when I tell you, I will never let that happen again.

[ Monitor beeping ] You heard? I heard. That’s it. Michael, we’re out of options. Come here. You’re wrong. We can do this. We can find you a donor. How?

[ Siren wailing in distance ] Damn it. Damn it! Damn it! Hey, hey. Damn it!! What do you need? Tell me what you need.

[ Sobs ] Sonny. What do you need? I won’t — I won’t survive losing another child. I won’T.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Okay. Horton. Enough of a silent treatment. You’re the one who didn’t say good morning. Okay. You’re the one who slept in Henry’s room last night. Whatever. No, not whatever. We need to talk about this. Fine talk.

What are you waiting for, Dupree? Just minute it. While my grandmother was dying, you were busy macing on my brother.

So you’re saying I can’t come visit my mother anymore?

No, no. Dr. Ricker, of course. I wouldn’t want to upset her in her condition. I was just hoping that we could

just call me if anything changes. Okay. Thanks.

Well, look, I know you’re busy, so I’ll let you go. I just, I wanted to tell you how sorry I am about Marlena and Kate too. I mean, so incredibly sad. Of course. Hey, listen, if you need me to pick up Ari, just let me know. Okay. I’m here. Whatever you need.

Oh, what the hell do you want?

Morning, father, don’t you look at me like that? I know you don’t approve of me going after my brother ej, but if you’ll remember, EJ struck first. He knew exactly what Lian had done to me, and he didn’t say a word. So I know while you vehemently disapprove of one dera going after another, think you’ll agree.

In this instance, this particular Dera is there to pay.

Rolf, what the hell are you calling me? You. You need more Petri dishes. You can’t be serious. Okay? Okay, fine. I’ll get you whatever you want. Just make sure you don’t forget about our deal. If anyone asks about ej, I never had anything to do with Stefan’s brainwashing. Got it.

I have to go


I was just on my way to the office. Oh, then I’ve saved you a trip. I don’t understand. Let me be more clear. You’re fired.

Like Sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Johnny, Hey. Sorry. I, uh, just dropped in like this. Open. I didn’t. Interrupt breakfast? No. No. Uh, my dad just went out to talk to the priest about his service, and Steph and Joey just went with him. Huh? Did you wanna come in? If it’s okay? Yeah.

Look man, I, I, uh, I know you got a lot going on, so I’m gonna make this quick. I, I said some things last night, some, uh, some unkind things about your mother, which was unfair and uncalled for. Look, whatever Ava did I know, I know it wasn’t your fault and I was just, I was upset about my grandma Marlena, and I took it out.

Look, I, I was way outta line trip and uh, I just wanted to come say that. I’m sorry,

Nicole. Good morning. Morning coffee. I’d love some. Yes.

Thank you. You are welcome.

It’s the brew not to your liking. Oh, no, it’s, it’s delicious. But I was curious about something, what’s. Well, when I walked in, I couldn’t help but notice you talking to Stephanie’s portrait, something about making Ed Zamira pay. Which one were you referring to?

Stephan. Who were you telling your father you wanted to get back? Kristen, of course Kristen don’t sound so surprised. Nicole. She conspired with Lee Shin to have me brainwashed, but she’s already facing pretty severe punishments considering it’s all but certain that she will be charged with murdering Kate and Kayla.

And next she’s going to be charged with murdering marle evidence. What you haven’t heard,

it’s been all over the news. I, I, I turned my alerts off of. What are you saying? Marlena died

last night.

You let me sleep in? Mm. I figured you could use a little rest after last night. , that’s more than I expected. So my mother’s obituary, oh, she lived an amazing life. But Eric, I gotta say, I mean, some of the stuff in here, it’s pretty wild. I think that the spectator needs some better fact checkers. Well, I’m sure it’s all.

Papers owned by our family’s friend. Well, no offense to your family’s friend, but it says something in here about your mom being a serial killer. I mean, that is a liable suit in itself. I mean, just let me show you what, it’s all right now. I’d rather do this.

Well, are you just gonna stand there or do you plan on telling me why you.

Gabby, I,

I know that you’re upset with me and you have every right to be, but I just wanted to come by and apologize again for my brother to, to Stephan. Anything else? Just that Okay. I didn’t agree with it when I heard, I was actually pretty horrified. Yes. Getting inside someone’s head and manipulating their feelings, playing God like that.

Oh, you must not been too upset since you didn’t bother to tell me. I wanted to. I swear. I mean, I came close so many times. Keeping that secret was agonizing. You know what’s agonizing, Wendy? Finding out that the man that you married is a two-face criminal and that the woman that you asked to stand up for you at your wedding is a damn liar.

They begged me to stay. He was so afraid of losing you. You know, I’m glad it all came out. I, it’s honestly such a huge relief. What if it hadn’t? Hmm? What if, um, what if I didn’t remember that, uh, that wolf told me that Lee tried to kill Stephen in his sleep, or that, or that Lee had ordered Ralph to, to make Stephan hate me?

What then edman, would you have kept me in the dark forever?

I don. You dunno, , you just wanted leave me happy and you made him happier than anyone has in his entire life. And I couldn’t take that away. He’s my big brother. I love him.

But I know that’s no excuse. I just came by to tell you that I know what I did was wrong.

Hmm. We both know you can’t fire me. Why not? Last I checked, I was c e O of Damir, and you have me to thank for that. I was the one who got you the votes needed to give Gabby the boot and take back control of the company. On behalf of the entire Demira family allowed me to express my sincere gratitude for all your years of service, which I’ve determined is no longer needed effective immediately.

Now, let me be clear. I’m going to remain in my position as your number two with your enthusiastic support. Most, of course, you want Steph. Find out about your role in his brainwashing. You see, that’s the thing, Lee, he already knows. Excuse me. I told my brother everything, and now since you no longer have anything to hold over me, you’re out.

What do you want me to say that I was kissing Johnny? It’s the truth. No, isn’t it? Look, Henry is still asleep, but he could wake up any minute. So why don’t you just admit what you did and we can all move on with our day. I’m not going to admit something I didn’t do. Chanel, I saw you when I got off the elevator.

You and Johnny sprung apart like you had been caught because you had, I was comforting him. That’s all you’re gonna gimme the comforting him line. I know that line. I’ve used that line on trip when you and I had sex behind his back. Okay. I know what you think you saw. Stop. Stop it. Because the more that you try and make me seem crazy and paranoid, the more insulting it is.

So if you have any respect for me whatsoever, you’ll just admit what is obviously going on and tell me the damn truth. When I got off that elevator, you and Johnny were about.

Yes, we were.

Finally, you admit it. You did wanna kiss Johnny. I’m sorry. No, don’t be because now I know how you really feel and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you having the courtesy to tell me. Okay. It wasn’t like that. I was really comforting him. Right. With your lips. No, I totally get that. Could you please just let me tell you what happened?

Yeah. Okay. Go for it. Oh, but um, just how steamy does it get, should I make popcorn? Allie, please. I am listening. So I, I went to the hospital looking for you, and then I ran into Johnny and then we started talking and then I got your text saying that you had gone home. So I was getting ready to leave. And then your grandpa John came running over to us, right?

Yeah. Because he wanted you to set up the rooftop for him and Grandma Marlina. I already know all of this. Okay, but what you don’t. Is that the whole time we were up there, Johnny was trying so hard to stay positive, and then we saw your grandmother in a wheelchair and she just looked so weak and pale.

And Johnny, he just, he kept smiling, but I could just see how sad he was and how scared he was. And as soon as we got back downstair. He, he lost it and I hugged him and we talked about your grandparents and, and about how blessed they were to have found each other and about how tragic it was that it had to end this way.

And after that, I, I don’t really remember what happened, but. Johnny, he, uh, he leaned forward to kiss me. So now you’re blaming it on him. I’m not blaming anyone. I’m just telling you what happened. Your brother, he was a wreck and emotions, they were running high and, and it just was like, it just, it happened in the heat of the moment.

It just said, what does it mean? It doesn’t mean anything. Okay, Atley. I am in love with you. I chose you. The whole reason I went to the hospital in the first place was to be there for you. I know you’re in pain, okay? And Molly, you need support right now and I wanna give you that support. I really do. I really wanna be there for you to help you, cuz I know you’re dealing with all this loss.

So please, Allie, can we please just forget about this?

Huh? That depends on what you say, that I’m the one you wanna be with, that you chose me and that what happened with Johnny last night was meaningless.

But to almost kiss somebody, that means that there’s attraction there. So tell me, are you still attracted to my brother?

Okay. I appreciate the apology. You taking the time to come by, that means a lot. Yeah. Yeah, of course. Look, I don’t blame you for being angry at my mom. I, I, I love her, but I’m also very aware that she’s done some truly terrible things. She’s sick and I kick myself every day for not being here, for not knowing how bad it was and not getting her the help that she needed sooner.

She’s at, uh, Bayview now, right? Yeah. She’s not getting out anytime soon. I’m sorry. Between, between that and losing Kaylee, you’re having a pretty rough time too, and, uh, hitting you. That was, it was not cool. Yeah, don’t worry about it. I didn’t take a swing at you first. . Oh, I should, uh, I should probably get going.

Um, give your family my condolences. Same. So we’re good. We’re good. All.

You told stuff in the truth. Mm-hmm. , he must be furious with you. Quite the contrary. He was very understanding. He understood that his own brother stabbed him in the back. Well, he wasn’t happy about it, of course, but he sees the bigger picture. By reclaiming Demira from an unqualified interloper, I’ve saved the company and preserved our legacy for generations to come.

You’re saying Stephan approved of your portrayal. I’m saying he respected it, and more importantly, he forgave me. And from now on, we’ll be running the company together as co CEOs. All in the family as it should be. . Funny you should mention family. You are aware that my father’s chairman of the demerit board, he’s not gonna like this.

True. True. He’s a very proud man. And you’ve embarrassed him terribly. I mean, he’s not going to like that. I’m being dismissed. He’ll never stand for it. I’m not sure what he can do. Seeing as you tried to murder my brother and subsequently had him brainwashed by a mad scientist. There’s no evidence of that.

Well, not yet. And in the meantime, there is a very decent chance Kristen could flip on you to save her own ass. You, the cops, your crazy sister, have nothing on me. Therefore, my father’s gonna make the case the very strong case to the shareholders and the board that until, unless I’m proven guilty of a crime.

I deserve to remain right where I am. Hmm. Wayne May be a formidable businessman, but he is not a demir. His opinion will never hold the same weight as ours. Are you willing to stake your company on it? I am in Indeed because the C E O I have every right to make this decision, which I’m sure I’ll have broad support in making, and I can always call on my voting block if I have.

Bottom line is whether you end up in prison may be an open question, but whether you have a job is not.

Good luck in all your future endeavors.

Oh, and uh, flee.

Let this be a lesson.

You don’t cross a demeanor and get away with it.

Fine. I accept your apology. Did you hear what I said? Do you want me to change my mind? No, no, no. Of course not. Thank you so much, Gabby. Thank you. Are those for me? Yeah. I thought they could be peace offering. Pretty lame, right? I would’ve preferred to design a handbag, but I do need Lily’s.

So what happens now? With who? With Stephan? Is he going to be Deprogrammed? Now that everything’s out in the open, you could do that. . We could, but Stephan’s not interested. He was at first, but he changed his mind. Why would happen? As you may know, after we got over our initial hurdle in this whole nightmare, you know, having Stephan believe that he was actually brainwashed and he finally did after Johnny told him that he went to Jakarta with you.

Yeah. That was huge. Yeah, it was for the first time after Stephen came back to life, he was actually nice. Sympathetic, almost caring. He said that now that he knew the truth, he understood how horrible this has all been for me. And he even apologized for hurting me. Must have been so happy to hear him say that.

Except he also told me that his, uh, feelings for that cow Chloe Lane are also real. But instead of arguing about how ludicrous that is, you know, I just told him we should find Dr. Rolf, have him undo what he did, and then he could decide if he still. And Stephan agreed. Yeah. Yes. Until we found out that Dr.

Rolf was in my, a disappeared without a trace. So I had one option left. The esteemed Dr. Evans, I, I went to see if she could help when yesterday is, I know that she was dying, but I had no choice. Okay. Well, what did she say? Brady wouldn’t let me in, which is a huge mistake because if anybody believes in the power of love, it’s Marlena.

I mean, if she could have helped, she would have, but now it’s, it’s too late. I’m sorry. I thought I was doing a good thing. I thought I was doing what Stephan wanted, but what I wanted too for him to remember what we had so that we could be together. But when he found out what I did that, and I even turned to Marlena, he was angry.

Oh, he was more than angry. He was repulsed. He says he never wants to see my face again.

I can’t believe she’s gone. Yeah, it did happen stunningly fast and the impact of her loss is so much greater than I could have possibly imagined. What do you. Well, her pit was picked up by every paper across the globe, and initially I thought Marlena was just a small town shrink, but hardly that’s so I learned she was one of the most well-respected psychiatrists in the world, and her impact didn’t just reach her patients, her colleagues or friends, and her children.

Thinking about Eric

Nicole, are you thinking about Eric? Of course. I’m thinking about Eric. I’m thinking about all of Marlena’s children, including Eric and Sammy and Bell and Brady. Right? Okay. Yeah. I wonder what’s keeping ej, isn’t he at the office? I asked him to, uh, take care of something for me first. Oh, that can’t be good.

Hmm. No, it’s a very good thing, Nicole. I asked him to fire Lee Shin on your. Oh, it was the least he could do. Considering he newly brainwashed me and didn’t say a word to me for months. AJ knew about that. Yeah. After the fact he came clean last night. Oh my God. I, I had no idea. Yeah. Nice try, Nicole. I’m. I have heard that you are a very gifted liar, but your acting skills use a little tune up.

Clearly you are fainting surprised about ej, just like you were pretending to care exclusively about Eric. Wow, I have to go to work. Hmm? You do that.

That’s it. No. Round two. I’d love to, but I can’t. All those shots you did last night, finally catching up to you. No, it’s not that. It’s just that my family is arranging my mother’s services and as much as I live to stay here with you, I need to go home and help. And of course, but just remember if you need to work through anything, I’m here for you.

Hey, Eric,

step doesn’t know me at all. Thanks. I’m this completely cruel, selfish person, person. Look, you can’t let what he said upset you. He didn’t mean any of it. Of course he didn’t. And he only said it because, oh, he hates me because of the, the brainwashing. But if he’s just got deprogrammed, he’d still love me.

But if he still hates me, he’s never gonna get deprogrammed. So I’m stuck.

You know? It’s too bad that you can’t make him do it. You mean force him? You mean, how would I do? Well, you just said s Stephan’s not in his right mind. I’m not a lawyer, but I would think that if you could have a mentally ill person committed, I mean there must be some way you can compel s Stephan to get the brainwashing reversed.

You mean get a court order? I don’t know. Maybe not. Maybe the best strategy would be to put on a full court. Okay. Get everyone who knows and loves Stephan to convince him he has to do this. Like an intervention. Yeah. But make it all about him. Like how doing this could give him back control of his thoughts, his feelings, his life.

And then once he has that, he can make whatever choices he wants. And of course he choose to be with you. Yeah. But even if Stefan gave consent, I. Well, I’d still be stuck because Marlene’s gone, Ralph’s in the wind. We have nobody to fix the damage. So no, I’m, I’m completely out of moves. Oh,

well, I’ve imposed on you long enough.

Anything else? Well, I guess I’m just a little surprised about what I’ve seen, how hard you fight for what you want. It’s one of the things I admire most about you. I never expected Gabby Hernandez to give up.

Wendy. Hey, that time, no, no. What’s going on? No. I just came by to see how you’re doing after last night. Oh my God. You’re fine. . No, no. Don’t worry about it looks worse than it is. Oh, I still can’t believe Johnny hit you. Oh, I actually just came by to apologize. good. I mean, I know he’s upset about his grandmother, but he can’t just go around punching people.

Ah, well, to be fair, I took a swing at him first. Yeah. After he said some horrible stuff about your mother, he actually apologized about that as well. Said that he was upset about Marlena and that he lashed out at me. Yeah. With his fist. I didn’t like it, but I get it. John just lost somebody who he really loved.

Am I still attracted to Johnny? What kind of question is that? I don’t know. You’re talking about emotions being high and things happening in the heat of the moment, so to me that sounds like there’s still chemistry there. Okay. Well you wanna talk about chemistry? Well, what about you and Alex? Me and Alex, yeah.

The other night when I came home, you two looked pretty cozy together. Drinking beers, hanging out. So what you wanna tell me that you’re not attracted to him? We were talking. But I’m thinking that maybe you wanted to do a little more than that considering that you asked for another threesome.

You know, it’s too bad that you can’t make him do it. You just said Stefan’s not in his right mind. I’ve seen how hard you fight for what you want. I never expected Gabby from N to give up

Wendy’s, right? I can’t just sit back and accept this. I have to freaking do something and I will.

So it’s done. Hardly take it. Oh, he made a lot of noise about how there’s no proof he did anything wrong, that his daddy’s chairman of the board, blah, blah, blah, blah. But rest assure. You don’t have to worry about having that trader in your midst any longer, Glen, hear. And even better, as soon as we finalize that paperwork, you and I will officially be co-CEOs of the mirror, which is a way it should have been all along headway, not intervened so unnecessarily.

And with the brothers de mirror back in charge, this guy’s the limit. Hmm. Sounds like reason to celebrate. Mm. Should I grab a fresh bottle of champagne from the cellar? We can toast to our future. Huh Uh. It’s a bit early, isn’t it? Oh, I’ll make you a mimosa . Okay. Okay. That, uh, that sounds lovely. I just need to email the paperwork to the lawyers and I’ll be right back.

Sounds good.

You’re throwing a threesome comment back in my face. You know, I didn’t mean that. Well, you sounded pretty serious to me. I was trying to make a point by airing out our private business in front of Alex. Do you know how uncomfortable you made him? Please? He doesn’t care. Okay. Well, I do. You made it sound like I’m unfulfilled in our relationship.

That was me. Me. No, no, no. You’re not gonna turn this back around on me. You are the one who almost kissed Johnny. Okay. And you brought Alex home. Alex took me home after he ran into me in the square and saw how upset I was about my grandmother and didn’t want me to be alone. Okay, I understand that. So why can’t you understand what happened with me?

Because Tony’s not some rando that you’re never gonna see again. He’s your ex-husband. Okay. Ex as informer as in no longer happening, right? Except for the whole comforting him. Well, have you ever thought that maybe I need some comforting too. I mean, I, I, if you’ve forgotten, I was recently arrested for murder.

The charges were dropped. Yeah, but it isn’t over. Sloane Peterson is suing me and mama in civil court, and she’s made it very clear that she is out for revenge as she’s not going to stop until she ruins both of our lives. So yeah, I’m kind of having a hard time right now. Oh. And I’m. I lost both of my grandmothers right before walking in on my twin brother, about to shove his tongue down my girlfriend’s throats at Lee.

No, I don’t wanna talk about this anymore. I have a ton of things to do. Oh, so that’s it. You’re just gonna walk away. Yeah. I need to go help with my grandma’s arrangements, so I’m gonna go get Henry dressed and then we’re out here

On your mom? Yeah. I just spoke to her doctors. Um, they asked me to stay away. They think seeing me might somehow trigger. Oh, no, I just, I feel so helpless. You know, I, I, I can’t go see my mom. I, I could have gone with my dad and my siblings to talk to the priest about care service, but that also didn’t really feel right.

But weren’t you closest with your stepmom? Yeah, I mean, over the past few years, I mean, she was like a mother to me, but. At a time like this, I just, I don’t know. It feels inappropriate to group myself in with Steph and Joey. I’m sure they wouldn’t mind. I know, I know. I just don’t intrude.

I don’t know what to do with myself honestly, Wendy. I am. I’m lost.

That’s okay. With grief illness. There’s no roadmap how you find your way outta it. I’m not sure you ever do completely, but I think in time it gets better.

So for now, I should just want stay calm. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and eventually

you’ll end up exactly where you belong.


hi. Hey. I just heard about your mother. I’m so sorry. Thanks. That’s such a terrible loss. Senseless, and, and shocking, and I can’t imagine what you’re feeling right now. I, I feel numb. It makes sense.

I should inside. Of course. Um, Aaron, before you go,

nevermind, what

would it be Okay if I gave you a hug?

Yeah, of course you can gimme hug. Are you sure? Yeah.

Eric. Hey, Sloan. Sorry, didn’t mean to interrupt Nicole. Hello Sloan. Is everything okay? No, everything’s fine. You just left your phone in my bed.

Johnny, look, this, this really isn’t a good time right now. I, and actually until things cool down, we should probably stay away from each other. I came here to see Wendy. Oh, uh, sorry. Um, yeah, she’s not here. Where’s she? I don’t know. She left pretty early this morning, but I’m not sure where she went. Can I get you some ice for that eye?

I noticed that it doesn’t hurt.

Hold you. Okay. Tough guy. Hmm. I’m just glad that Johnny apologized. I’ve kind of been on an on an apology toward myself this morning. Oh yeah? Yeah. And who’s on your route? Mm. , how did that go? Well, first I thought she was gonna slam the door in my face. Mm-hmm. , but uh, and she heard me out and in the end forgave me.

Nice. I just wish I could help her with stuff. And you know, he refuses to get the brainwashing reversed. What? Why? Long story. But even if Gabby could convince him to get to be programmed, there’s no one who could actually do it. So she’s stuck with him hating her. That sucks. I know. I just feel so bad that there’s nothing she can do.

Hope you enjoy your little drinky J because after a few doses of this, you’re gonna start acting pretty strangely. In fact, your judgment’s gonna be so impaired. The mayor board will have no choice to remove you. An eye for one can not wait.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Michael: Lauren?

Lauren: Ah! Perfect timing.

Michael: Any time I spend with you is perfect, my brilliant, ravishing wife.

Lauren: Well, thank you, my incredibly handsome husband, for the compliment.

Michael: One that’s so especially well-deserved. It’s not every day you win the lifetime achievement award for leadership in fashion.

Lauren: Oh, such an honor, and one that is made more momentous because I get to spend it with the people that I love the most.

Michael: Ahh!

Lauren: [ Laughs ]

Gloria: Oh! There she is, the woman of the hour!

Lauren: I’m so glad you guys are here.

Gloria: Wouldn’t have missed it for the world.

Kevin: Chloe asked me to pass along her congratulations. She, of course, wanted to be here, but she’s traveling for business.

Lauren: Aw!

Kevin: You know how much she loves parties, fashion, you — not necessarily in that order.

Lauren: Well, I hope not!

Chloe: Wait!

Lauren: Oh!

Chloe: Do not get started without me!

Gloria: Yes!

Michael: Yeah!

Lauren: Yay!

[ Laughs ]

Michael: Oh, we are delighted that you’re able to join us.

Gloria: And is scott coming?

Lauren: Oh, unfortunately not. He’s on a reporting assignment in the middle east.

Kevin: Oh. What about fen?

Lauren: Ah-ha! There’s your answer.

Fen: Hi, mom. Way to go on the award. I’m so proud of you.

Lauren: Oh, sweetie. Thank you.

Fen: You look great, by the way.

Lauren: Thank you. You too.

Fen: Dad, you do, too.

Michael: Yeah, of course i do.

Fen: Good to see you.

Gloria: And grandma glo, my handsome grandson!

Chloe: So good to see you, as always, fen.

Fen: I’m glad to be here. Uh, everyone, this is my boyfriend, trey. Trey, this is my uncle kevin, aunt chloe, grandma gloria, last but not least, my dad, michael baldwin, and my mom, lauren fenmore.

Michael: It’S…it’s fantastic to meet you in person at last.

Trey: Same here. It’s lovely to meet all of you.

Michael: Well, i think I speak for all of us when I say that we are thrilled to have this opportunity to get to know you.

Fen: Well, we’ll have plenty of time for that. But right now, I think that trey is dying to talk to mom.

Gloria: Ooh!

Trey: Yeah, congratulations on your big award. I can’t believe I’m here this evening, let alone sitting at your table.

Lauren: Oh, it’s — it’s my pleasure.

Fen: So, trey is a buyer for fenmore’s in nashville.

Lauren: Oh!

Fen: But what you didn’t know is…

Trey: You’re an icon to me, ms. Fenmore. Truly, this is such a privilege. I can’t even tell you.

Lauren: Oh.

Fen: So, I’ve been telling him all about you. Talked about you a lot. But I thought he’d want to hear your life story from you directly.

Trey: Only if you’re up for it. I know this is your big night, so I don’t want to put you on the spot.

Lauren: Oh.

Trey: But, um, I do want to know all about the woman who raised the man I love.

Gloria: Oh!

Lauren: Aw! That’s so sweet. Alright, well, uh [Laughs] Where do I start?

[ All laugh ]

Trey: I guess from the beginning. And by that, I mean whenever your life first started getting interesting.

Lauren: Oh, well, if we’re going to go that far back, we all better settle in and get some cocktails, because this is gonna be one heck of a ride.

[ All laugh ] Did you know if you turn to cold with tide She didn’t want to be a moth

Lauren: So, without a doubt, I was daddy’s girl. My parents, they divorced when I was very young, and my mother decided she didn’t want to be a mother. So, my father, neil, he raised me, and I adored him. My mother, joanna? Uh, not so much.

Lauren: All I ever wanted was for you to be proud of me. But you never were. And I know why. Because you were trapped in a marriage and a family that you wanted no part of.

Joanna: That same family turned around and wanted no part of me.

Lauren: But what did you expect us to do?

Joanna: Obviously, I expected too much. Oh, lauren…

[ Sighs ] …If only I’d known you were carrying this around all these years.

Lauren: And if you had? Would it have made a difference?

Lauren: Being raised by a selfish ice-queen mother and an indulgent father who worked more hours than he should have could have contributed to the fact that I was such a handful as a teenager. But I had passion. And back then it was music. And I was so excited to be able to sing with danny romalotti.

Fen: I’ve actually seen videos of the concert. I mean, what a — what a trip. You were — you were seriously good.

Michael: Hey, your mother is a woman of many talents.

Lauren: Well, it was an extraordinary time in my life. And it didn’t hurt that danny was, like, the kindest, cutest guy I’d ever seen.

[ Laughs ]

Lauren: I guess I don’t need to ask you what you feel about my singing with you.

Danny: No, there’s — there’s no need to ask. It’s all settled.

Lauren: No dice, huh?

Danny: Did I say that?

Lauren: You mean?

Danny: Yes, I want you to do a song with me at my next concert.

Lauren: You mean — you really mean that?

Danny: Under one condition.

Lauren: What — anything.

Danny: That you wear more than your engagement ring on stage with me.

Lauren: [ Laughs ] You got it. You got it! Oh! Thank you. Oh, thank you.

Lauren: Danny was much nicer than I was back then. And when I found out that there was a rival for his affection, whoo! The mean girl in me came roaring out.

Lauren: Came out pretty good, didn’t it? A friend of mine took that at danny’s big rehearsal, remember?

Traci: Yes, I remember.

Lauren: And, naturally, danny wanted a copy. So, I got him one, too.

Traci: He told you we wanted a copy?

Lauren: He didn’t have to. I’m getting to know danny real well.

Traci: Yeah, I’ll bet.

Lauren: See you around, trace.

Traci: Don’t count on it, lauren.

Lauren: [ Sighs ] I was definitely not my best self back then.

Michael: Hey, you were young. You grew out of it.

Lauren: Not as fast as i should have. Honestly, I mean, I had everything a girl could ever want, and yet I was such a wild child. Ironically, getting in trouble is how I met my first husband.

Paul: Alright, just a minute, sweetheart.

Lauren: What? I —

Paul: I think you better come with me.

Lauren: No, but —

Paul: Come on.

Lauren: Paul is our chief of police now. But back then, he was a private detective. We shouldn’t have made sense, but we did.

Lauren: I thought you were busy working on a case.

Paul: Um, I changed my plans.

Lauren: Why?

Paul: So I could be with you, of course.

Lauren: Hmm. Well, then, I’m not going to complain.

Paul: You know, even 007 has to take a break every once in a while.

Lauren: 007?

[ Chuckles ] Well, in my opinion, you’re a perfect 10.

Trey: Sounds like a terrific guy.

Lauren: He is. And his parents were salt of the earth. His father, carl, was a retired police detective. And his mother, mary [Laughs] A devout catholic, very protective of her family. So, you can imagine how I went over.

[ Laughs ]

Mary: Listen — there is nothing wrong with not wanting to have children, nor is there anything wrong with wanting to stay single. But you have to be up front about it.

Lauren: You know, this is none of your business.

Mary: And that’s what i question about you. It’s not your values or your goals or what makes you happy. It’s the way you — you misrepresent yourself. Now, paul thinks that you’re going to marry him. He thinks you — he expects you to marry him and give him children.

Lauren: Now, has he said this? Has he said these words to you, mrs. Williams? Because let me tell you something. Paul and i have a great relationship. We have been through an awful lot and we have survived it all. And so, if anybody is going to know what’s best for paul, it’s going to be me. Now, I have some things to do. Goodbye, mrs. Williams.

Gloria: Well, I’ve always approved of you. I doubt this mary and I would have gotten along very well.

Lauren: Oh, truer words were never spoken.

Gloria: You know something? I’ve always been curious. I’ve never asked. But why did it end with you and paul?

Lauren: You know, um, a few reasons. First and foremost was this guy name shawn garrett. When I met him, he was, you know, very kind. He said he’d been to all my concerts, and he wanted to start an official fan club for me. And then he became obsessed with me. He tried to ruin danny’s career. And then he said that he would kill paul if I didn’t divorce him. So, I did. I did to protect paul. I tried to pretend to have feelings for shawn, but when he found out how I really felt? To say that he lost it would be an understatement.

Shawn: [ Panting ] By the time you wake up, lauren, it’s going to be too late. No one will ever hear you. No one will ever find you.

Paul: [ Grunting ] Oh, my god!

Lauren: Paul was my hero. I mean, I shudder to think of what would have happened to me without him.S and it was after that very uncertain, complicated time, after I suffered such a big loss, that I decided it was time. It was time to grow up. Hi, I’m katie.

Lauren: I was only in my 20s when my dad died. It was such a shock. I wasn’t prepared to lose him so soon, and I certainly wasn’t prepared to take on his life’s work.

Paul: “And a wistful sadness came over his face as he said, ‘my one and only regret is that my daughter lauren never joined me in the business. She’s a bright, talented, young woman, and she’d be a terrific asset to fenmore’S.'” Honor your father’s last request. Why don’t you take over the business?

Lauren: I was determined to make my dad proud.

Michael: Hey. You have. You took his legacy and made it even more successful than it was.

Lauren: Thank you for that. You know, once I took the reins and started running things, I actually grew into the role pretty quickly. You know, that brazen self-confidence I had as a child actually started to pay off. And that’s when I met my second husband, scott grainger. He was this amazing doctor. He was kind, handsome. Don’t worry, not like you, not like the love of my life, completely different.

[ Laughter ]

Scott: I never dreamed I could be this happy.

Lauren: Well, if you only knew what you’ve done for me, what you’ve brought to my life, peace and security that I feel.

Scott: Mrs. Grainger, will you do me the honor of having this dance?

Lauren: I’d love to dance with you, dr. Grainger.

Fen: So, dr. Grainger was scott’s dad, but he died when my brother was really little.

Lauren: Uh, we just, you know, we got married too soon, and we had a lot of problems. The main one was this nurse that he was working with who decided that she was the only woman for him.

Michael: Ooh. I was wondering when you were going to bring her up.

Lauren: Yep. You know, I thought I could handle anyone or anything, no matter how crazy. And then I met sheila. Little did I know that I was looking in the face of pure evil.

Lauren: You keep this up, and you’ll lose big.

Sheila: Are you threatening me?

Lauren: You’re damn right I’m threatening you. You don’t know the meaning of trouble. You mess with me, and you’re going to find out. So, why don’t you just stay away from my husband?

Sheila: I really —

Lauren: I’m a very powerful woman, and I wouldn’t forget that if I were you. Now, this will be your only warning. You keep your claws away from my husband, or you’re going to have to answer to me. And believe me. You don’t want to do that.

[ Telephones ringing ]

Lauren: And sheila didn’t stay away from scott.

Lauren: Sheila is pregnant?

Scott: Yes.

Lauren: And it’s your baby. Is that what you’re telling me?

Scott: Yes.

Lauren: She — she said — she told you it’s yours, right?

Scott: Lauren, I know it’s my child. She’s not involved with anyone else.

Lauren: So, all this time there was an involvement, and you denied it.

Scott: Honey, it’s not the way you’re making it soun–

Lauren: Well, how is it? Obviously, there was an involvement. You fathered her baby.

Scott: Lauren, I know this hurts.

Lauren: Oh, thank you for being so understanding.

Scott: Lauren, I am telling you this because I want to save the marriage, and I don’t think we can do that unless we’re totally honest with each other!

Lauren: You know, I told you about her!

Scott: Lauren —

Lauren: But you wouldn’t listen to me. You said, “no, she is just a good friend.” Was that before you slept with her or after?

Lauren: Turns out that, um, i was pregnant, too. I hid it from scott. Um, it was a baby boy, dylan. I loved him so much, and, um… he didn’t survive. And I struggled to put the pieces of my life back together. And sheila was, uh, so vicious and cruel.

Sheila: I know you don’t want to believe this, and I don’t want to disappoint you, but I did forget. Your dead baby isn’t always uppermost in my mind.

Lauren: How can you be such a vile, hateful person? How can you be so vicious?! How?! How?!

[ Both grunting ]

Sheila: [ Gasps ]

Lauren: Even then, I didn’t grasp how profoundly sheila hated me and how far she would go to hold onto scott… so much more than I ever could have imagined.

Lauren: Your mother just said that you switched babies at the hospital after my son was born.

Sheila: Sad, isn’t it? I told you she was delusional, lauren.

Molly: Liar!

Sheila: Can you imagine her saying such a thing?

Lauren: You’re telling me that this is just some delusion, some bizarre hallucination?

Sheila: Poor, poor mama. All this incessant chatter, and yet nothing you have to say makes any sense at all.

Molly: Liar!

Lauren: That made sense, sheila.

Sheila: Oh, you’re going to believe her, lauren? You’re going to believe the words of a deranged, hallucinating, old woman? She tells you this incredible story, and you’re going to accept it?

Molly: [ Stammers ] Yes.

Lauren: If what you’re saying is true, then my baby, my… my son is still alive.

Molly: Yes!

Lauren: Is it true? Is it true?! Answer me! Is it?!

Sheila: Alright, lauren. Yes. Everything my mother told you is absolutely true.

Molly: Sheila!

Sheila: Mother, would you just — aah!

[ All screaming ]

Lauren: Molly and I escaped, and I thought sheila perished in the fire. I thought I was finally rid of her. But that just began decades of torment. She showed up again and again, and she tried to destroy me. And, you know, even now, when I’ve been assured that she’s dead, I don’t really believe it. But if that bitch decides to resurrect, and she comes near me or anyone that I love, she will wish she had stayed dead.

[Coughing] I

Lauren: I learned a lot living in L.A. I met a lot of incredible people. But, ultimately, I made my way home. And thank goodness I did, because otherwise I wouldn’t have met this remarkable man.

Michael: Mm.

Lauren: [ Chuckles ]

Michael: Some things were meant to be.

Kevin: It’s true. You do seem destined to be together. But there was another step in there. I’m the reason the two of them got to know each other.

Trey: Oh, did you set them up?

Kevin: No, it’s nothing as sweet or simple as that.

Gloria: Nothing ever is in our family.

Kevin: When I met lauren, I was a total goner, completely smitten from day one.

Michael: Who wouldn’t be?

Lauren: And I thought you were a lovely young man who just seemed a little lost.

Kevin: I got it in my head that lauren was falling for me as hard as I was falling for her. And when I realized I was mistaken, I didn’t handle it very well.

Kevin: The day we met at the boutique, you told me how rare it was to find somebody in this world that was actually kind. And then you said that the older people got, the less likely they were to judge somebody before they really got to know them.

Lauren: Yes, I did.

Kevin: So, is any of that true, or is it just a bunch of empty words?

Lauren: No. That was sincere. That’s the truth.

Kevin: Okay. Because you didn’t know who I was then. Then I told you my name. You probably heard all the stories, you know, and you just assumed they were true. And you never even gave me a chance.

Lauren: I want to give you a chance now. Come on. Let’s work through this, please?

Kevin: No, no, no! There’s no way that’s going to happen — not after you made a total fool out of me.

Lauren: Kevin, just —

Kevin: No, no, no! Okay? That’s enough! No more games! It’s going to end here, now, tonight.

Kevin: Fortunately, lauren is one of the most forgiving people I’ve ever known. She cared about me, even though I was a total train wreck.

Michael: And lauren and i were talking a lot then, mostly concerning kevin. But pretty soon we realized that we couldn’t seem to get enough of each other.

Lauren: [ Laughs ]

Michael: And I was the goner.

Lauren: Oh, me too. I fell madly in love.

[ Laughs ]

Michael: And pretty soon, i realized that I would be an absolute fool if I didn’t ask this amazing woman to marry me. And so, I offered up my heart on a platter — or on a casino table.

[ Laughter ] But you got the idea.

Michael: It has been my experience that people have a way of thinking themselves out of the best thing that’s ever happened to them.

Lauren: And you think you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me?

Michael: Oh, I know I am. And you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me. No risk, no reward.

Lauren: Well… if you insist on having an answer out of me right this minute…

[ Sighs ] …I’m afraid the answer has to be… yes.

[ Both laugh ]

[ Noisemakers blaring ]

Michael: [ Laughs ]

Lauren: And I was on my way to becoming an official member of the baldwin-fisher clan.

Kevin: And everything that comes with it, starting with the wedding.

Gloria: I offered to plan the wedding. And, of course, I knew how skeptical they were. But it could not have been a more elegant ceremony.

Lauren: You did a magnificent job.

Gloria: Thank you.

Michael: My entire life grew brighter that day, like the grinch’s heart growing three sizes. I didn’t think there was room for any more love in this body of mine. Then fenmore came along — what a miracle you are.

Lauren: One of my greatest joys. And our family was growing.

Michael: Oh, in ways that we couldn’t predict, especially the fenmore side.

Lauren: Oh, wow. Yes!

Michael: [ Laughs ]

Lauren: I usually prepare for anything, but I did not see that coming at all. Oh-oh! Ma ma ma ma

[Clears throut]

“The young and the restless”

will continue. Dry skin is sensitive skin, too.

Fen: So, you know that jill abbott is my aunt, right?

Trey: Yeah.

Fen: Well, she wasn’t always. Or well, she was, but my mom didn’t always know they were sisters.

Lauren: Right. I mean, it came as a total shock. Jill’s adoptive mother told her that neil fenmore was her biological father. Of course, when she told me, I did not believe it.

Lauren: Your half-sister? How is that even possible?

Jill: Trust me. I am as shocked as you are.

Lauren: Where’d you hear this?

Jill: Liz told snapper when she was dying. She didn’t want the secret to die with her.

Lauren: So, tell me what she said.

Jill: Okay. She said that she has always known who abandoned me at the hospital. It was this young girl, a teenager — very poor.

Lauren: What was her name?

Jill: I don’t know her name. I do know that her boyfriend was willing to marry her. But the boy’s father, his whole family, objected very strongly. They were well-to-do. They were influential. They wanted their son to go to college and become successful. They didn’t want him to disgrace the family with an illegitimate child, you know. And his father put a lot of pressure on him until he was willing to walk away from my mother and me.

Lauren: So, this boy, your father…

Jill: Was neil fenmore, your father.

Michael: But the dna test proved it was true.

Lauren: I was not so gracious. The last thing I wanted to do was welcome jill into my family.

Fen: But they managed to work things out.

Lauren: Eventually. Yes, we still drive each other up the wall, but we get along pretty well. You know, most of the time.

Lauren: Are you really trying to justify having sex with a stranger in my office?

Jill: Oh! He wasn’t a stranger, okay? And I don’t know why you’re making such a big deal out of this.

Lauren: You know what? We were trying to have a very romantic anniversary dinner…

Michael: [ Laughs ]

Lauren: …Which you ruined.

Jill: Maybe if you didn’t have this place secured like the damn pentagon, I wouldn’t have accidentally set off the silent alarm! What are you laughing at?

Michael: [ Laughs ]

Lauren: Are you trying to blame me? Oh, my…

Jill: Oh, my!

Michael: [ Laughs ]

Lauren: [ Laughing ] We come in, guns blaring.

[ All laughing ] You should have seen the look on your…

[ Laughter continues ] Not to mention your hair!

Lauren: [ Laughs ] Oh, there’s never a dull moment in this family.

Michael: We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Lauren: So true.

After advil.

Phyllis: My goodness.

Lauren: I’m so glad you came.

Phyllis: Oh, I wouldn’t miss this for the world, fashion expert extraordinaire.

Lauren: We’re just having some champagne before we go into the ballroom. Join us.

Phyllis: Oh, great. I’d love that. Hey, fen.

Fen: Phyllis, hi. I’d like to introduce you to my boyfriend, trey.

Phyllis: Very nice to meet you.

Trey: You too.

Lauren: So, if they ever write a book about michael and me, this woman deserves a chapter.

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness.

Kevin: A very long, twisted chapter. Mm.

Phyllis: No. No, definitely not. I like to think of us as a dynamic trio. You know what I mean? We have a very special bond, lauren.

Phyllis: If you would have asked me months ago how I would feel about being pregnant, um, I would have said it was the worst thing in the world. But…but I have to be honest with you. When I was at dr. Thompson’s today, I mean, I just realized how excited I am about this baby.

Lauren: Well, then, that’s all that matters, right?

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Lauren: Okay. So… who do you want the father to be?

Phyllis: Um… how about michael? Is he available?

Lauren: No. Taken.

Phyllis: Okay. Too bad. He’s going to be such a great father.

Lauren: Yeah, he is.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Lauren: Hey, why did you see dr. Thompson tonight?

Phyllis: Oh, I, um, I was spotting and…

Lauren: Oh.

Phyllis: Yeah, but she wants me to do an amnio, just, you know, to be sure.

Lauren: You know, I had one today. Do you want me to go with you?

Lauren: You know, it’s easy to have friends during the good times, but it’s the one who really shows up when things aren’t so good that really counts.

Chloe: That is so true.

Trey: Not just with friends.

Phyllis: Well, you two, watch and learn. These two, their relationship goals — you have an incredible bond. I mean, they haven’t been, now, without conflict. That’s for sure.

Lauren: [ Laughs ] No.

Phyllis: But how they’ve navigated through it, you know? And they have a great relationship because they rely on each other. When one of them falls down, the other one leans down and picks them up.

Michael: Please, just end this.

Lauren: No, I won’t do it.

Michael: Don’t make me say things that will hurt you.

Lauren: You don’t think this hurts?

Michael: Oh, I know it does. And I want the pain to end for both of us. The only way that’s going to happen is if you accept the fact that I don’t want to be with you. I don’t love you anymore.

Lauren: I will not accept that. What we have is real, and i will never give up on us.

Michael: My wife is the bravest, fiercest human being that I have ever met. And we’re all the stronger for it. …Will remain radioactive for years to come.

Michael: Thank you guys so much for coming.

Kevin: Thank you!

Michael: Love you, love you, love you.

Kevin: Congrats again!

Michael: Kevin, call me.

Kevin: Love you all. Bye.

Michael: Bye! Thank you, phyllis.

Gloria: Bye, handsome son number one.

Michael: Bye, mumsy.

Fen: Bye. And I think we’re actually going to check out noah’s club.

Lauren: Alright.

Michael: Ah!

Lauren: Expect to see you far more often.

Fen: I know. Yes, ma’am.

Lauren: Right?

Fen: I love you.

Lauren: I love you.

Michael: Thank you so much.

Lauren: So nice to meet you.

Trey: You too.

Michael: Alright. Pleasure, trey.

Lauren: Bye.

Trey: Bye.

Lauren: I’m so grateful.

Michael: Mm-hmm!

Lauren: Fen is back on track, and he’S… he’s found love.

Michael: I don’t mean to be self-congratulatory, but I think phyllis got it right when she talked about us setting a good example for others. I mean, lord knows we have faced obstacles that would pulverize other couples.

Michael: Lauren?!

Lauren: In sickness and in health! Those were the vows that I took, and they weren’t just words. I meant every single —

Michael: Alright, neither of us expected this.

Lauren: But that doesn’t mean that I walk out on you. I love you. Cancer does not change that.

Michael: No, no, no. Cancer changes everything.

Lauren: It doesn’t have to!

Michael: It will!

Lauren: You shut me down! You drove me away! And you drove me to find peace and comfort and support elsewhere.

Michael: In another man’s arms!

Lauren: We made it this far because we pledged to love each other forever. We meant it.

Michael: Do you remember what you were doing one year ago today?

Lauren: Let’s see. One year ago today. Ooh, my nails? These poor things.

Michael: Okay, fine. If that’s how you’re going to play it, you’re not getting your anniversary gift.

Lauren: [ Gasps ] Gift? Gift?

Michael: Well, too late, too late.

Lauren: Why didn’t say in the first place?

Michael: I am so taking it back to the store.

Lauren: No, you are not.

Michael: Yes, I am.

Lauren: Not if I can find it first.

Michael: No, no. Stop!

[ Laughing ] Stop! Stop it! Stop it!

Lauren: No, I’m gonna find it!

Michael: Alright, alright. Right there. Go ahead. It’s yours.

Lauren: You gonna give it to me?

Michael: Yeah.

Lauren: Okay.

Michael: Yeah.

Lauren: Oh. Michael. I’m gonna pick yours up later, okay?

Michael: No, look. You have given me the most precious gift in the world…and it’s asleep! Open.

Lauren: Okay. Oh!

Michael: Lauren fenmore baldwin… I promise to love and honor and cherish you until the day I die.

Grandmother. Hello. Spencer, trina, hi. Nice to see you, mayor collins. So nice to see you, too. Yeah. Listen, kids. Um… I think cameron really needs some friends tonight. Oh, no worries, grandmother. Trina and I will look after cam, make sure he’s okay. Thank you. Good to see you both.

[ Sighs ] Do you know what’s going on with cam? Joss stabbed him in the back. Josslyn: I hurt you, cam. And now you want to hurt me. Maybe I deserve that. But that doesn’t change the fact that if sonny finds out that dex and I slept together, he could turn on dex. He might have him killed. You really believe I’m gonna go on the internet, tell everyone that my girlfriend left me for some stupid criminal? No, your secret’s safe with me. Thank you. Don’t you dare thank me for being a better person than you are. Unlike you, I don’t betray the people that I care about.

[ Knock on door ] Hey. Hey. I got your message. What’s wrong? I screwed up. Whew!

[ Panting ] Wow! You’ve been lifting weights, bud? No.

[ Grunting ]

[ Strained ] Then you’ve been definitely eating spinach. Oh! How did that just happen? I’m strong! Yeah, you are. I demand a do-over. I wanna tell grandma. Can I?

[ Exhales sharply ] I think I’m gonna like us. A lot. I already do.

[ Sighs ] Yeah, I’m perfectly aware the accommodations are not as luxurious as our guest would wish, but they’ll have to do for the time being. Yeah, and keep me apprised of any developments. She might just be my best hope for bringing my son back to me. Lucy! Lucy, can you hear us? It’s anna and valentin.

[ Muffled talking ] What?

[ Muffled talking ] Yeah? Lucy, nod your head yes or no. Are you hurt?

[ Muffled shouting ] O-okay. Okay. Look, w-we’re coming to get you.

[ Breathing heavily ] Victor…

You can tell grandma about your epic win later. Right now, it’s time for bed.

[ Knock on door ] I wonder who that could be. Annabelle.

[ Laughs ] Last I checked, dogs don’t knock, bud. Hey, hey, hey! Hey! Hi, mama q! Oh! Honey, I told you. It’s auntie olivia, eh? Cody says it’s mama Q.

[ Laughs ] Is annabelle with you? No, annabelle’s sleeping ’cause she’s all tired out from playing with you. Well, speaking of being tired out and time for bed, you got to get to bed. It’s pj time, man. Well, that’s actually why I’m here. ‘Cause wiley is officially invited for a slumber party up at the main house. What? What do you think? How does that sound, buddy? Yeah!

[ Laughs ] Goody. So go pick out your favorite pjs and two toys. Only two? I know. It’s gonna be hard to narrow it down. So you’d better get up there and get started. Oh! Cutest kid ever. Yeah. Other than leo, of course. Of course. Of course. Of course. And that’s very sweet of you to invite him up to the main house. Well, I figured you guys could use a little break. I mean, y-you’re doing a pretty good job of, uh, keeping your feelings from wiley, but I can tell you’re really worried about willow. Mm. Yeah, well, aren’t we all? And, yeah, I’ve — I’ve definitely gotten closer with willow and with michael this past year. It’s just — she’s just — she’s — she’s so incredible. She’s such an incredible woman. It kills me that she’s going through this right now. At least now there’s hope for a donor, right? I assume that you know that nina is willow’s mother. I do. But how do you know?

[ Laughs ] Drew, how long have you been with the quartermaines? Yeah, I guess news travels faster than the speed of light in this family. Yeah. Yeah, whatever my feelings are for nina, and — and — and there are a lot

[Sighs] I just hope that she’s a good match and I hope that willow’s gonna be okay. You know, she could be okay already, you know. Look, willow could already have her bone marrow transplant. She could be on her way to recovery if — if what? Drew? What are you not telling me? And why do I get the distinct impression that it has something to do with carly? Carly: Hey. What happened? I’m sorry that I didn’t see you when I was at the hospital. Um…[Sniffles] How’s willow? She was asleep when I was there. She’s the same. Just… waiting to see if nina’s a bone marrow match. I should have stayed.

[ Breathes deeply ] There was just so much going on. What’s going on? What is going on with you? You didn’t give me a lot of detail on the message you left. I hurt cam all over again. I lost him as a friend.

[ Voice breaking ] We’ve known each other forever. And I blew it.

[ Breathes sharply ] Now, why do you say that? Cam came over here tonight. And I wasn’t alone. Okay, you need to explain this to me. What do you mean joss stabbed cam in the back? Spencer: I can’t believe that your best friend didn’t tell you. Tell me what? What’s going on? I’m sorry. You really don’t know? I kept my mouth shut for once. About what? If something’s gone wrong between you and joss, I need to know. You want to tell her, or should I? Martin: Well, looky here. Must be my lucky day. How is it the two most attractive ladies in the room should pay attention to little old me?

[ Laughs ] Well, kevin is working late, and charlotte and I decided to have a girls’ night out. Right? Would you like to join us? You know something, charlotte? It’s official. You are as well-mannered as you are beautiful. But I would never intrude on a girls’ night out. Hey, uh, what do you say you wash up before dinner? Okay. Okay, hon. Think about having dinner with us, uncle martin. You look like you could use a friend.

[ Indistinct conversations ] Out of the mouths of babes. Mm. She’s very observant. And she’s right. You should have dinner with us. I mean, if nothing else, we’ll provide a distraction. I want frequent updates and a speedy resolution. Oh, hold it right there, granddaughter. Enjoy your girls’ night out. I have no need or reason to subject my brand-new niece to a serious case of low spirits. Martin, you’ve got to have faith. I believe that anna and valentin are going to find lucy and bring her home. Yeah. And amen to that. Truth be told, I was sitting here stewing about how I could tip things in their favor. Speaking of, have you ever pondered what was said at pentonville? We had that little tte–tte with our dear incarcerated brother. You mean when he suggested that we work together to bring victor down? You’re not actually considering that, are you? I know the way in. Follow me. Wait, wait, wait. There’s a door right there. Is — is that the only entrance?

Oui. Yeah, but it’s gonna be guarded, obviously. You sure there’s no other point of entry? Oh, I think we’re looking at one. What? These joints are so rusted, I think we can yank this grate right off. Okay. T

Carly knew that nina was willow’s mother. She’s known since harmony died, and she didn’t say anything. She what?!

[ Stammers ] Carly believed that she was protecting willow. And as soon as she found out that willow was sick, she did tell the truth.

[ Sighs ] But in the meantime, she kept that information from everyone. Including you. And… that wasn’t the only lie. She was so determined… to make sure the truth didn’t come out, she actively sabotaged my search for willow’s birth family. How did you find out about all of this? Well, c-carly confessed once I told her that willow had leukemia.

[ Sighing ] Oh, wow. Okay. You’re dealing with some very heavy stuff here, drew. You know what? Willow collapsing, willow being rushed to the hospital, that’s heavy stuff. We got to — we got to show up for her, and — and — and that’s all that matters right now. Of course that’s what matters most, but — but… your relationship with carly, it matters, too. You think that your “friendship” can survive this? I talked to michael a little bit, um, but he was totally focused on willow, of course.

[ Sniffles ] And I was just sitting around the hospital, and I didn’t want to run into sonny or nina. And then dex showed up. And we rode in the elevator together, and I brought him back here. And it really helped… …to talk to him and… …to be with him. And, uh, we decided to order food. Dex was only in his pants. I wasn’t in much more. And when we went to answer the door, it was cam.

[ Sobs ] The look on his face.

[ Sighs ] Mm. Hey. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. So am I. I’m not sorry that I was with dex. But I’m so sorry that I hurt cam like that. Trina: Joss broke up with you on new year’S. And I’m just hearing about this now? Why didn’t she tell me? I don’t know. Maybe she was embarrassed. Embarrassed? I’d be embarrassed to break up with cam. But why did she break up with you in the first place? She said that we grew apart. Yeah, allegedly. You don’t believe her? I already told cam that I think that there’s more going on than josslyn’s lame reason. And judging by the look on his face, I’d say that I’m probably right. You know as well as I do that cyrus’s good intentions also come with an agenda. I guess. You’re right. Don’t worry, I’m not seriously considering working with cyrus. But I did bump into victor earlier when I was… at the hospital.

[ Sighs ] It was a rather harsh and in-your-face reminder that he’s the real reason I’m not sitting here having dinner with lucy tonight. Okay, I believe that anna and valentin are going to bring lucy home. I promise you. How are you in a position to promise me that?

[ Sighs ] Well, valentin sent me a message on christmas. Why didn’t you tell me sooner? Did he — did he say anything about lucy? No, he didn’T. He didn’T. But he did say that things were going well and that they’re making headway. Yeah, headway. Headway. What the hell does that mean? Headway. You and I both know the longer it takes the two of them to find lucy, the worse her chances are of survival. I’ll tell you what, I am sick and tired of sitting around. Putting my eggs in alternate baskets. I think I found myself another way to get to mr. Victor cassadine. By representing esme prince. Charlotte, how lovely. You know, I have been meaning to visit you for ages now. But your grandmother has other ideas. She and I do have our differences, but I was hoping we could put them aside as far as our shared family is concerned.

[ Breathes sharply ] Oh, well. So how are you doing, my dear? I’d be a lot better if I knew where my father was.

[ Grunts ]

[ Grate clangs ] Lucy: Oh! Oh, lucy. Oh, my god.

[ Breathing heavily ] Are you alright? Oh, my god. You — you sa– you saved me. A-after you tried to kill me. No, I didn’t, I didn’T. It’s not what you think. It’s not what you think. I don’t understand. What the hell is going on? Okay, it was a setup. I was framed. We don’t have time to explain. We got to get you out of here. Come on. Renee: I’m sorry. But she’s not leaving. And neither are you.

[ Breathing heavily ]

Mother nature can be very powerful. These storms go over all of our roads. The minute

the windstops blowing we’re open. If you’re evacuating, we have food, we have water, come inside. Letting them know that you’re not along in this. It’s been unbelievable in the way everybody has stuck together. You can really see we have a family. There’s no limit to what we can do as long as we’re taking care of people. Be ready for whatever life throws your way. Only dial provides a hard-working clean but is gentle to skin with its skin smart complex and 3 moisturizers to leave your skin feeling fresh and healthy. Nothing cleans like dial. I asked dex to leave. He didn’t want to, but he did. And the second that me and cam were alone, he asked me straight out… if I had slept with dex before we broke up. I didn’t even need to say anything.

[ Scoffs ] He could see the truth on my face. What is the truth? Dex and I have been sleeping together since new year’S. So now cam thinks I’m a liar and a cheater and that I broke up with him for dex, and I didn’T. Okay, I know. Two things can be true. You know, your feelings for cam could have changed at the same time you were starting to connect with dex. I should’ve broken up with him weeks ago. But I kept putting it off. And part of that is legit, because we had a lot going on. But the other part of me didn’t want to hurt him. And now I ended up hurting him even worse. And it’s not even that he just walked in here. It’s also that I asked him — i had to ask him… not to say anything about me and dex. Sonny told dex to stay away from me. If he finds out that dex disobeyed him, he could kill him.

[ Sighs ] You’re right. Dex is risking his life by being with you. But he’s also risking his life by working for sonny. That doesn’t seem to bother dex. Does that bother you? I-I don’t know what you’re asking me. Josslyn.

[ Sighs ] I was about your age when I met jason. And he also didn’t have a problem with risking his life. In fact, I think he liked it. And I liked that he liked it. You know, that he was dangerous… but yet he could make me feel safe. Jason would take these crazy chances, but I always knew that he would be there for me. Is that how dex makes you feel?

[ Sniffles ]

[ Crying ] Yes. Then you’re going down a really difficult road. And you need to be sure this is what you really want. Carly outright lied to me when she told me that nina wasn’t willow’s mother. I — I had no reason to doubt her. I-I certainly had no idea that she could go to such lengths to cover up the truth. You’re angry. You’re damn right I’m angry! On willow’s behalf, knowing what she’s going through, and on mine. I-I-I trusted her.

[ Sighs ] You know what? Drew, you and i got a lot in common. We’re both straightforward people. We don’t like the lies and the secrets. We want everything out on the table where you can deal with it. You know, that’s been a real challenge for me dealing with the quartermaines. And it’s gonna be a challenge for you dealing with carly. I can understand why — why you’re very upset with her. On some level, I get why she lied to me. You know, beca– she found out about willow’s dna results right during wiley’s visitation hearing. And I remember that. I remember how — how hard it was on willow, how furious she was at nina. And that’s why actually I stood up for carly when her family was laying into her a little bit about withholding the truth. Clearly you still care a great deal about carly. Of course I care about her. But it doesn’t change the fact that she lied to me. You would have to ask joss. I only know what she told me. I mean, y’all are going through a rough patch right now. But you always seemed meant to be. Maybe you can work through it. Trina, just drop it, alright? Me and joss are done. Spencer: Hey, man, go easy. What the hell are you guys even doing together right now? Esme’s been found. You can stop pretending. Isn’t there enough B.S. To go around already? Okay. Wow. Sorry about that. It’s fine. Cam’s just hurting. Maybe we should give him a break. It was nice of you to stick up for me, though. Any time. Is anyone in your corner tomorrow for dr. Westbourne’s memorial service? Oh. I can’t believe that she’s gone. I really don’t know if I’m ready to say goodbye. Well, would it help if I tagged along?

[ Sighs ] It would.

[ Breathes deeply ] Yeah. Okay. Then it’s a lock. Cool. Thank you. Cam’s right, you know. About what? Well, there’s no reason for us to keep… pretending that we’re closer than we really are. How could you? How could you take her case? Number one, I didn’t have much of a choice. And, number two, don’t you dare. If I had to wait around for your approval for all of my clients, I would never work again. Seriously, I seem to remember you having a really dim view of me representing peter august, and look how that turned out. Okay, look, esme is no peter august. But she did horrible things to my family. Horrible. Who, by the way, are your family, too. Yeah, which your son made abundantly clear to me when he had me assigned to esme’s case pro bono. And just so you know, when I tried to remove myself, he promised me triple my normal rate to remain her attorney. Now, I may have been born yesterday, but I stayed up all night. And even if nikolas is hiding something up his sleeve, two can play that game, because your boy and his beloved uncle have been thick as thieves lately. Please tell me that you’re not gonna use a pregnant girl who has traumatic memory loss as leverage. A little. Don’t look at me like that. I’m not a monster. We both know that information is power. If something lands in my lap helps me free lucy, I am damn well gonna take advantage of it. Okay. I suppose I understand that.

[ Sighs ] I do, but consider this a warning, okay? If you try to outmaneuver victor, you’re only gonna end up in trouble. Please, join me for a bit. Can I get you a soda? No. Now [Sighs] Why would you think I’d do anything to your father? I’m not naive, grandfather. You sent me to boarding school in switzerland to keep me away from him. I thought you were enjoying your school. I didn’t enjoy not being able to leave or not seeing my papa. And now you’ve done something to get him out of port charles. My dear charlotte, your father makes his own choices. And I’m very sorry if those choices keep him away from you for too long. But I fully intend to bring us all back together again soon. We’ll be skipping that reunion. Charlotte, let’s go. Step away from lucy.

[ Exhales deeply ] Anna devane, always looking for an escape plan. But there’s no escaping this.

[ Speaking french ]

[ Door opens ] On your knees. Hands behind your head. Valentin: Who paid you to sell me out, renee?

Je suis désolée,

mon amour. I needed the money. I had no choice. No, you had a choice. You just made the wrong one. Depends on where you’re standing. Or kneeling, as the case may be. No, no, no, th-they’re not gonna — you’re — you’re not gonna kill us, are you? Maybe.

[ Breathes sharply ] I’m sorry. You’re interrupting. I was just catching — let’s go, charlotte.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

[ Sighs ] What? Everything’s set. Would you like to speak to everyone? Yeah, put me on speaker.

[ Cellphone beeps ] Victor: Valentin, anna,

how is the reunion going? I’m sorry it’ll be short-lived.

The cops don’t think that esme is the killer, which means the real hook is still out there, still attacking people who are connected to me. Right. Which means that keeping up this charade is our best bet to lure her out of whatever rock she’s hiding under. So we’re agreed. We keep pretending to be a couple? Yeah. Yes. Yeah. Right. Mm-hmm. Even though my mom called me out for letting you back into my life.

[ Chuckles ] Well, I can’t say that I’m surprised that, uh, she had a strong reaction to us. She hates me, and I probably deserve it. It doesn’t matter. I stood up to her, told her who I hang out with is my business. Well, I am sorry to cause problems between you and your family. I keep telling them that they need to learn boundaries, that I can make my own choices. Your family just cares about you. A lot of people do. I can’t tell you how to live your life. You’re exactly like me. No one can tell you anything. You’re gonna have to figure it out for yourself. But my life can be divided… between what happened before I met jason and everything that happened after. And that’s gonna be the same for you if you stay with dex. That person that puts you in danger and gets you out of it. That person that makes you want to take crazy chances. Person you want to lie for, even when he doesn’t want you to. I got to tell you, as your mother, I don’t want that for you. Do you want that? Because this isn’t just some other guy, joss. This will change your life. I can’t un-meet him. I can’t un-care about him. What’s going to happen between me and dex has already started. And I don’t want it to stop. I do understand that no one likes to be lied to. Mm. I understand that better than anybody. But carly kept the truth from willow because she was trying to protect her. Her motives could not have been further from selfish.

[ Sighs ] Understanding carly’s motives and trusting her, those are two different things. You know… I am willing to bet that you were drawn to carly for all of these traits that you’re grappling with right now, her open heart and — and her determination to protect her family at all costs, even when those things sometimes hurt the people that are closest to her. Your eyes are open. There is no pretense about who carly is, about the things she’s done. And you chose her anyway. You’re gonna have your goons kill us while you’re half a world away?! Never pegged you as a coward, dad. Do you think I could dispose of you that easily, my boy? I couldn’t make charlotte an orphan. Besides, I still have hope for our relationship, although it probably never stood a chance with her influence. Whose influence? Just know you’ll always be my son. I’ll never give up on you. Gavin. Here.

You know where to take ms. Coe

and my son. Get rid of ms. Devane. I’ll kill you myself, victor!

You’re right. I wanted to be with carly for all of that, for everything that she is. I know better than anybody that carly sometimes goes about things in a backwards way when she’s trying to protect her family. She and I have had some epic arguments about our sons. But she’s also come through for me many, many times. I care about carly. A lot. I just don’t see what kind of future we could have moving forward. Do you really think that — that it was easy for her to lie to you about this? No, no, no. Listen. I’ve known carly for a lot of years. We’ve been friends a long time. She feels things very deeply. I’m willing to bet that she was at war with herself about this, wanting to be honest with you, wanting to protect her family, not wanting to lay another secret on you. But s-she was — she was so adamant that she did the right thing. And who knows? Maybe she did. Based onhat she knew, based on what she didn’t know. Lookit, carly will protect the people she loves at all costs. And damn if that’s not the person that I want to have in my corner. Bottom line is we can’t be in a relationship where lying is okay.

[ Sighs ] I get that. Okay. Drew… only you can decide what’s okay and what’s not okay in this relationship. Yo u’re gonna have to makethat decision for yourself. I’m gonna go wrangle wiley. Um… you lock up before you leave. You know how I said that dex is gonna be the person you lie for? Yeah. Don’t ever lie to me. Okay? I’m not always gonna approve of what you’re doing or agree with everything, but I will always have your back. And I need to know that you will always come to me when there’s something wrong. But you have your own problems and your own life. Josslyn, stop it. Nothing is more important than being your mother. Nothing. Okay. Okay what? Okay, yes, I’ll come to you. You better. You miss jason? Every day. But drew helps? He did.

[ Breathes sharply ] He did? What does that mean? You broke up? Well, uh, no. I mean, not yet, anyway. What happened? What happened? You — honey, you know that… I found out that nina was willow’s mother, and I didn’t say anything. So he’s mad? He feels betrayed. You know, I kept things from him. I lied to him. So what, you’re just gonna give up?

[ Chuckles ] This doesn’t really sound like you. I am — oh, I am holding on to hope that we can work through this. But, you know, I… I do understand how drew feels. I know why you kept willow and nina’s relationship a secret. It’s the same reason that I kept my feelings for dex a secret from cam. Why inflict unnecessary hurt? But willow and cam still got hurt despite our best intentions. Yeah. Because we can’t control how other people feel and we can’t control how other people are gonna react to our decisions. That’s why it’s better to tell the truth. It’s less painful than defending a lie.

[ Chuckling ] What? Just wondering how you got so wise. I’m not sure.

[ Sighs ] Have you spoken to your father since the… you know? Since he got my ex-girlfriend pregnant? No.

[ Chuckles ] I’ve, uh, tried to avoid him as much as I possibly can. And I plan to keep doing so. He’s hurt me again and again and again and again. I hate him for it. I want nothing to do with him. I get the impulse, but that may not be feasible. Why not? You’re about to have a new sibling. Are you really going to let your feelings about your father prevent you from having a relationship with your new baby sister or brother? Grandmother, do you know where papa is? Sweetheart, we know that he’s safe because he sent us that message on christmas. But that’s not the same as knowing where he is, what he’s doing. What if grandfather victor’s done something to cause papa to disappear and we’ll never see him again? Oh, sweetheart. Please, I’m begging you! Don’t — don’t do this!

[ Speaking french ] Ow! Don’t you — what’s this? These were in her bag.

[ Beep ]

[ Explosion ] That’ll be the c-4 that I attached to the water mains when you thought I was lost. In about one minute, this whole chamber is gonna be flooded. Anna was on to you from the very beginning, renee. Yeah. You changed your appearance when you left our hotel room. So I kind of figured maybe you’re more than just a cataphile. And I do everything she says.

[ Water rushing ] I hope you can swim or breathe underwater.

[ Grunts ] Anna!

Of course I’m not going to turn my back on my sibling, but my father is toxic, and I need to make sure that he doesn’t get the chance to hurt my sibling and treat him the way that he treated me. Good. Your brother or sister will need you. The best thing to do would be to ensure that my father isn’t the one who gets to raise the child.

[ Scoffs ] Obviously, that would be best. But esme is not much of an improvement. Besides, she’s facing criminal charges and may be sent to prison. So your father may not be the best option, but he’s the only option. Not necessarily. What? What about me? One thing I know about your father is that he will move heaven and earth to get back to you. And the rest of us are gonna be right here for you till he does. Thanks, grandmother, uncle martin. I think it’s my turn to wash my hands.

[ Chuckles ] Be right back. Mm. Victor: Excuse me.

[ Breathes deeply ]

[ Sighs ] Leave charlotte alone. You can try to turn my family against me, laura. But you won’t succeed. Charlotte will come around… if she ever wants to see her father again.

[ Breathing heavily ]

[ Coughs ] Oh, god. I don’t think…

[ Coughs ] …You’ve ever been more beautiful than when you punched renee in the mouth. You’re so romantic. You alright? I don’t know. I don’t know.

[ Breathing heavily ] Okay. Thank goodness you gave me this. Or I might have ended up like that renee and those guards. Oh, my god, I’m not gonna miss them, but seeing their dead bodies, I’m not gonna get that sight out — out — it’s okay. It’s tragic, lucy, but it was you or them. Come on. We got to move. No. No, no, no, no, no. I don’t want to go yet. Do you have a phone? A phone that’s still working? Please, I really — I really need to call marty, please. No, listen to me. You can’t — you can’t call — you can’T. Why?! I want to talk to marty! You can’T. Why not? Because as far as the rest of the world knows, we’re all dead. And we have to stay that way.

Sheila: Mm. The new owner of il giardino, you really have outdone yourself, deacon.

Deacon: It’s been a dream of mine for a long time, but it’s nothing compared to what you’ve accomplished.

Sheila: What’s that? Maintaining my freedom?

Deacon: I– I don’t know how you did it, but you did it again. You pulled another rabbit out of your hat.

Sheila: With the help of a very good man.

Deacon: Oh, thank you. I appre– oh, you– I’m sorry. You meant your– your boy toy, bill. By the way, you might have to find a nickname because boy toy, bill, little long in the tooth. Come on. Honestly, are you telling me that you’re in love with this megalomaniac, or are you just using him?

Eric: It’s fine, don’t worry. We’ll– we’ll make adjustments.

Steffy: It’s only one review, hope.

Zende: What does that guy know anyway?

Hope: Well, he’s just one of the top critics in the fashion world.

Steffy: Well, he’s wrong. Your line is spectacular. You, zende and granddad work day and night, perfecting those designs.

Eric: Now read it again. It can’t be that bad.

Hope: “The new design team for hope for the future shows signs of inspiration, but it is a far cry from the artistry and innovation under thomas forrester.”

Thomas: Artistry and innovation.

Paris: You can’t get enough of that review, can you?

Thomas: Look, it’s not like I want my granddad or zende to fail, but the truth is no one can bring out the life of that line like I can.

Paris: What are you doing? Looking for more compliments?

Thomas: No, I am checking my messages. I’m waiting for hope or my sister to reach out and tell me how much they need me.

Paris: I don’t know if I’ve seen you this happy.

Thomas: Vindication.

Paris: I know you’d still rather be working at forrester.

Thomas: Yeah, it is gonna be awesome when they ask me to come back.

Paris: Wow, you seem pretty confident.

Thomas: It’s only a matter of time before they rehire me, right? And I know it’s gonna be hard for them to swallow their pride, but um, they need me. And that lackluster review, that proves it.

Zende: I’m sorry. I can’t help feeling responsible.

Eric: No, don’t do that. Don’t do that. This– this critic just needs time to uh, adjust to the changes we’ve made in the line, the changes in the look, you know. If anyone is to blame it’s me.

Zende: Grandad, come on.

Eric: No, no. I have decades of experience. I– I should have been able to pull this off. No, no. No one is to blame. This was a collaboration. We all signed off on the final looks, but clearly we missed the mark. And now we have a limited amount of time to make it right. And I am trying not to panic.

Steffy: Don’T.

Hope: Well, steffy, we invested every resource into making this collection a hit.

Zende: So we go back to the drawing board.

Hope: I mean, will that really help though? I mean, I hate to say it, but do desperate times call for desperate measures? Do we need thomas back on hope for the future?

Deacon: You still haven’t answered me.

Sheila: What? About the pizza? I told you less oregano and a little more garlic.

Deacon: No. About your claim that you’re in love with spencer. How is that even possible?

Sheila: Why is it so hard to believe?

Deacon: Oh, well, for starters, he’s not your type.

Sheila: Well, I really wouldn’t have thought so either, but.

Deacon: How long has this secret little affair been going on? I mean, you were living with me for months. I– I thought you were into me? And now you’re with spencer, the most arrogant jerk on the planet?

Sheila: Yeah. Well, don’t take it personally. I know it’s difficult to lose at love. I– I– I know that.

Deacon: Hm. But did I really lose? And is your relationship with spencer the real deal? I’m managing my high blood pressure, you’re trying to be

Thomas: Yeah. It’s just,mmm.

Thomas: You know, I lost so much, but you have been so great to me. Your encouragement and um, well, allowing me to crash here.

Paris: Oh, hey, I enjoy the company even though you make me late for work.

Thomas: Yeah. It’s just, it’s nice that someone still wants me around.

Paris: Well, I always try to see the best in people. You made a mistake, obviously a really bad one, but you regret it.

Thomas: Yeah. But nobody really wants to hear my apologies. They kicked me out of forrester, out of the family, and I’ve lost my son. That’s the worst part. I miss douglas so much.

Paris: I’m so sorry you’re going through this, but I can also see you’re trying to be a better man. And hey, things are looking up for you. Forrester seems to need you. They’re struggling without you.

Steffy: Thomas? Hope, seriously?

Hope: Well, you heard that review. The line is in trouble.

Zende: So we’ll fix it. You, me and granddad will put our heads together and–

Hope: And what? Are we going to pull a brand new line out of thin air?

Eric: Yes, we can do that. It’s not too late. We can do it.

Steffy: It’s a way better idea than welcoming back thomas. You just terminated him and you said that you’re trusting your line in zende’s and granddad’s hands.

Eric: Have you forgotten what he did to your mother?

Hope: No, I haven’t forgotten. And I won’t be able to forgive him for that. But this is bigger than me. I mean, I have a whole team of people to think about, their livelihoods. So I need to consider every angle. I mean, I don’t know. Maybe there’s a way we could do it in a way that hasn’t been done before.

Steffy: What are you thinking?

Hope: Well, thomas could work remotely and that way he’s not allowed into the building. And he could communicate via email.

Zende: Really?

Hope: It’s an option.

Steffy: Wow. I was not prepared for this. But as ceo, I’ll consider it. But ultimately, we need to speak to my dad before making any decision about thomas.

Deacon: I do appreciate you coming here before open so that no one would see us together, even though you’re a free woman. A lot of people though, wouldn’t be too happy to see us together.

Sheila: Heavens forbid.

Deacon: Mm. So how did this– this spicy romance with bill get started?

Sheila: Oh, you want details?

Deacon: I’m a big boy. I think my shattered heart can handle it.

Sheila: Well, I was living upstairs and I snuck down here one night and bill spencer was sitting at the bar eating and drinking alone, and something just seemed off. I was wildly intrigued by that.

Deacon: Hmm.

Sheila: When he left, I followed him.

Deacon: Back to his palace.

Sheila: No. No, to the beach. We sat in the sand until sunrise talking.

Deacon: Sounds like a cheesy novel my grandmother would read. The billionaire and the fugitive.

Sheila: He really surprised me. Turns out we’re more like one another than I could have ever imagined. Just both misunderstood and– and always under attack. Turns out we both just wanted to be loved.

Deacon: Well, you know, look at you all– all glowing and stuff. Okay, great. You’ve got real feelings for bill.

Sheila: Yeah, I do. I really do. And I’m gonna spend the rest of my life with bill spencer.

Deacon: I’m sure you hope you do.

[ Sheila laughing ]

Deacon: I’m just trying to wrap my head around the idea of you and spencer.

Sheila: Hey, it was unexpected for me too.

Deacon: So tell me the truth. I mean, were you just using me? I mean, not just for this, you know, the– the food, the shelter, the security, all that.

Sheila: No, I cared for you, deacon. And I still do.

Deacon: Now, you’re moving on with spencer.

Sheila: It’s– it’s not that I didn’t enjoy every minute with you.

Deacon: How could you not? I treated you like a queen.

Sheila: You were a very, very giving roommate.

Deacon: I’ve heard that before. I have. Yeah. But– and where’s it gotten me? You know, single. And I– when– bill and me, I’m just curious, you know, how do I measure up?

Sheila: Um.

Deacon: Come on.

Sheila: You– you measure up just fine.

Deacon: Boom! I knew it!

Sheila: You do not have to feel less.

Deacon: Haha. And I don’T. Hey, tell me, does he do that little thing with it?

Sheila: Oh. Uh-huh. You know, a lady doesn’t kiss and tell.

Deacon: This has been a crazy ride, hasn’t it? I mean, you show up at my place, a desperate jail bird. You got nowhere to go. No place to stay. Now, look at you. You’re free as a bird. Living in spencer’s mansion. Miracles do happen.

Sheila: Miracles don’t just happen. I make them happen. I do.

Deacon: I know.

[ Sheila laughing ]

[ Hope sighing ]

Paris: Hey.

Hope: Oh, paris. Hi.

Paris: Sorry again for missing the meeting.

Hope: It’s fine. It’s been a pretty stressful day for everyone.

Paris: What’s going on? Oh, right. The review on the latest collection is supposed to come in today.

Hope: Yeah, it already did.

Paris: Not good?

Hope: The critic wasn’t too impressed.

Paris: Oh, no. That sucks. Did they say why?

Hope: Um, basically, it is pretty clear what the problem is. And that is that–

Paris: Zende and eric aren’t thomas.

Steffy: Obviously, pierre has been in business for years, but it’s the first he’s seen of many new designs. There is so much more to come, so many surprises. Do you mind if I– I call you back? Thanks. Thomas, what are you doing here?

Thomas: It’s okay. Charlie didn’t see me. I snuck in, so nobody knows I’m here.

Steffy: I do.

Thomas: So what? Dad’s out of town and granddad is having his afternoon pickleball date with donna right now.

Steffy: You shouldn’t be here. You know that.

Thomas: By that sound of that phone call.

Steffy: Oh, you’re eavesdropping?

Thomas: I read that piece on hope for the future and steffy, I am sorry that you’re having to do all this damage control.

Steffy: Thomas, it’s not your business anymorE. God, I can’t– I can’t deal with you right now. Timing couldn’t be worse.

Thomas: Actually, hearing the spin that you’re trying to put on that bad review seems like my timing couldn’t be any better.

Deacon: So then you admit it. You worked your charm. You made it happen with bill.

Sheila: Actually, it– it happened organically. You know how it is when you open up to somebody and– and you’re talking about your life and– and what you like and– and your wants and your needs. Kinda what– what lights you up.

Deacon: Kinda thought that’s what we were doing not too long ago back at my palatial estate.

Sheila: Actually I really liked that little place. You know what, now that you are a restaurateur, I’m sure you’re going to have your own estate in no time.

Deacon: We’ll see.

Sheila: You know, I– I really… I look back fondly at all those hidden moments that we had together.

Deacon: Okay. Sheila, you can’t say anything about that.

Sheila: I know.

Deacon: I mean it. I– I– especially, especially for hope. Nothing.

Sheila: No, quite honestly, I really don’t want bill to know that we were rooming together either.

Deacon: We were sleeping together in the bed, the couch.

Sheila: Oh, okay. Okay. Yeah.

Deacon: Against the wall, in the kitchen.

Sheila: Uh-huh. Yeah. I– I remember quite vividly.

Deacon: Oh, I bet you do, honey. You ain’t never gonna forget.

Sheila: No. No. We have a lot of romantic moments, but you know what was really special to me is when you came to see me in jail.

Deacon: Thought I’d be doing that for years.

Sheila: I really do appreciate it.

Deacon: All right. All right. Look, I– I– I gotta ask, with you and spencer, I– I get it, your feelings are legit. You’re not playing the guy.

Sheila: Sorry to disappoint.

Deacon: He’s just so full of himself. I mean, are you– are you really that tight?

Sheila: I thought I made myself perfectly clear, deacon. I hope you enjoyed that because that is never gonna happen again. I don’t wanna do anything that’ll risk what I have right now.

Deacon: Then why did you come here?

Sheila: I wanted to tell you about bill and me. And I– I wanted– I wanted to congratulate you or you know what? Maybe I should be saying congratulazi– um, congratulazi–.

Deacon: Are you trying to say congratulazioni? You gotta move your mouth more.

Sheila: No. Yes.

Deacon: You can do it.

Sheila: That’s what I wanted to say.

Deacon: Brava.

Paris: Well, for what it’s worth, I thought the collection was beautiful.

Hope: Thank you. I did too. And you know, obviously we were trying to pick up where we left off with the previous collection, but I guess we just did not recapture that magic.

Paris: I don’t mean to pry, but are you considering asking thomas to come back and design for hope for the future?

Thomas: Take a look at what I’ve come up with.

Steffy: Thomas, you don’t work here anymore.

Thomas: Yes, I know that. But maybe, just maybe, these will change that. Just look, they’re for hope for the future. They’re good, sis. No, scratch that. They are great. They’re exactly what hope’s line needs. It’s a shame they’re not in production right now.

Steffy: Well, you know why, thomas.

Thomas: Yeah, I get it. Everyone’s mad at me, but I still care about the line.

Steffy: And hope?

Thomas: Yes, I care about hope, but not like that. Steffy, look, I know that I screwed up, all right? But I– I can’t be, like, banished forever. I mean, that review shows how much hope and her line needs me right now. I mean, what? Am– am I supposed to be like never forgiven, never brought back into the line, never brought back into the family? Look, yeah. I– I used an app to try and reunite our parents.

Steffy: You say it so casually, thomas. Do you not have any remorse?

Thomas: Of course I have remorse and I’m very sorry for what I did. All right. But what about brooke and all the years of pain and heartache that she’s brought on our family? I’m not asking for a full pardon. I know it’s gonna take a while for me to regain everyone’s confidence, but at least let me be a part of the family business.

Steffy: It’s not that simple, thomas.

Thomas: Look, you know that I am artistic and creative types can be a little obsessive.

Steffy: You took it to a whole new level.

Thomas: Yeah, I did. I went way overboard and I never should have. I’m so sorry, steffy. I– I– it– it pains me so much that I hurt you, that I hurt douglas, but come on, please give me another chance. I mean, you– you have the power, right? You’re co-ceo with dad. You could bring me back into the family and you could give me a chance here. I mean… please tell me that I still have a place here. Tell me that I can still be a part of forrester creations.

 I am gonna do without you.

So, uh, I guess I should ask you.

Oh, man. What, um, breaking news reports about grandma makes it pretty real. Yeah. I think I know how you feel when I lose my big mama. I am gonna fall apart. And then you lost your Aunt Kayla and your Grandpa Roman wife and my, uh, my other grandma. It’s, it’s just like, when, when does it end? You know, what’s,

you said that you wanted to ask me something? Uh, yeah. Yeah. You, um, you never told me what happened with you and Allie after I. Well, I was sitting alone when you found me here tonight, so that should tell you everything you need to know.

Dave, I’m, I’m so sorry. I was not looking where I was going. You neither.

Oh. Oh yeah. I’m so sorry for your loss. Thank you. I’m sorry for yours too. Grandma meant so much to so many people. Yes, you did. This day is just the worst look. I’d like to have a seat and sit down and talk. You know, I don’t think anything that I would say would make much sense right now. If I just go on a walk, try and clear my head.

You do what you need to do. Do you know if, uh, if John’s still here? Yeah, I think he’s up on the roof. Um, that’s where she, that’s where she died, so I think he could really use an old friend right now. I figured.

I know you’re gonna be up there. You’ve been looking out for all of.

Where am I?

Like Sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Hey, Steph. It’s me, a k, a jackass. I know I have no right to be asking anything of you right now, but

could you maybe. Try giving me a chance to make this up to you. I’m talking groveling here. You and I had something great going and I don’t want to give up on that.

That’s all I wanted to say.

I know I should have called first. No, it’s okay. Come on in.


Oh, I, I don’t know how so many terrible things can happen to one family in such a short time. I just wanted to tell you in person how sorry I am and, and I brought you something that you and your daddy can stick in the oven and heat up for. Thank you so much.

What’s the least I could do ever know that you’ve been there for me when I needed help. I really appreciate you bringing that in person. Um, actually, uh, that’s not the only reason I can, yeah. Oh yeah, Stephanie. I need your connections now more than ever.

Knock it off. I’m coming.

At least you didn’t bring the kid with you this time. No. Rachel’s situation is the only thing in my family that seems to be under control. What does that? My mother died today.

I don’t understand what’s happening. I was on the roof with John. Join John. John, are you here?


Is this a political problem? Because now that the new governor’s been sworn in, you can’t change your mind about No, no, no, no. I didn’t change my mind. I’m saying here in Salem and, and I’m at war and for chandel’s sake, I cannot lose.

So. I told Allie that the only reason I went to the hospital was to see if she was all right. Something tells me that didn’t make much of a difference. She can’t get over walking in on us. Did did you happen to tell her that? I had just realized that my grandmother was about to die and that’s why you had your arms around me.

Johnny, you turned into a little more that okay, fine. So let her be pet at. Johnny, it was both of us. You tried to comfort me. I tried to turn that into a piss. You know I’m right.

Oh, hi. Hey. Oh God. I just heard about Dr. Evans. I’m so sorry. Thank you. If you’re looking for Chanel, she’s not here right now. It doesn’t matter. What do you mean it doesn’t matter? Oh, you can’t be alone right now. You don’t look okay. I’m not okay. I’m the farthest thing from, okay, right now. Let’s get you home.

How’d you find me? Buddy? Ran into Alley at the nurses station. Ah,

we were just, uh, you’re sitting over there looking at some family photos. Oh, that’s. That’s what the projector was for.

She wanted me to take her home. I just kind of thought this was a, a compromise, just trying to make her happy.

You did,

and I know that she’s up there right now looking down on me wanting to need to be strong. She wants me to know that I’m gonna get past this. That would be her. But she’s wrong. I am. Cause I’ve never past this.

That’s it. That’s right. Your best friend,

Oh, thank God. We all thought you died in that terrible car accident. And here you are. You’re alive and you’re well.

God so much.

Oh my God, Eric, I’m so sorry. I, I know what it feels like to lose a mother. Yeah. Well, this didn’t have to happen. Did the hospital screw up on her care? Was it the doctor? Because if so, you consider them into oblivion? What? No, it wasn’t the doctors. They did everything They. It’s the virus. She’s too strong and they couldn’t find the cure to fix it.

Okay, so you came over here to tell me she died and shouldn’t you be with your family right now? No, the family is the last thing I wanna be around right now. Are you sure you don’t wanna be with somebody you care about? I said I care about you. I mean someone you love. And we kind of agreed that that’s not what we are doing.

That’s not, I’m not asking for a shoulder to cry. Hey, what do you want?


So after the London cops said they didn’t wanna press charges, I thought Chanel and I had made short work of that Sloan Peterson. Well, I thought so too. What? Well, that little witch, she’s suing us both for wrongful death. She’s made up her mind to ruin on us one way or another. So it’s a civil suit. Right.

And the lawyer I’ve been talking to, he says that, uh, that means that that burned of proof thing is lower than ever. She could take me to the cleaner. Chanel could lose the bakery. Oh, that’s awful. Ooh, you’re telling. But I don’t see how a publicist could help you. What I need is someone on the inside, I want to know Sloan’s strategy and you want me to be that person?

Well, actually I was thinking of your, your, your boyfriend, Alex. What, what’s the problem? Well, he, he saved us once. I mean, uh, remember, remember how he got fat evidence that Sloan head on your mouth? Unfortunately, yes. Huh. Well, we need him again. Tell him to suit up or you gonna strip down whatever it takes.

Oh, he’s gonna get back in the ballgame As much as I’d like to help you, I, I can’t do that. Well, what, you’re not having an attack of ethics, are you? That’s not the problem. Well, I’m done to what it is. I’ll fix it. You can’t. Alex and I split up. Thank you again for taking such good care of Henry Night.

Hey, if you don’t wanna be alone, I can stick around. I don’t know what I want. I don’t even know where I was going when I ended up in the square. Why isn’t Chanel. Bakery’s closed. I don’t know where she is. Maybe with Johnny. Wait, what? Do you want a beer? I feel like beer sounds really good right now. Sure.


You want to sit down and drink that maybe? Sure.

I cannot believe that your grandmother’s really gone, that woman. She was like an institution or something, just always helping people. Yeah, she helped me. That’s for sure. Yeah, she was so strong. I really thought she was gonna make it through this.

What, what may maybe, maybe you shouldn’t chug that. The last thing you need right now is a hangover. What I need is my grandma. I’m gonna call Chanel, uh, Uhuh. Please don’t. Ali, is there something going on with you two? It’s what’s going on with her and Johnny. It scares me.

Okay. Uh, you know, I’m gonna go find Allie and talk some sense into it. No, no, no. Talking to Allie is my job. Butter vent to me, all should be should be calmed down by the time you. No, you are both grieving over your grandmother. You’re too raw if you try to talk to her now. It’s only gonna make things worse.

It has to be me. It’s it’s your call, I guess. Yeah. And I wanna give her a little more time.

Have you, uh, have you thought about what I said? You said a lot of things about wanting to kiss you

with Susan. Are you saying that, that you’re really dead? The car exploded. I went up in a big old fire boom. . Yeah, I’m sure they just sch swed what was left in me under the Rs. Oh, no, no.

As as I there.

So if you’re dead and you’re. Here, and I’m here with you.

Does, does that mean that I’m,

oh, no. See, without that orchid that they couldn’t do a darn thing to bring you back to love. The same with Kate and Cal. What were they?

Susan? I asked you a question.

Am I pushing you into something you don’t want? Anything That’s a possibility. I must be losing my time.

I knew you weren’t yourself, you were just trying to be kind to me. I came on to you. I, I’m really sorry. That’s, I didn’t take it seriously because you had just finished telling me about Wendy and how great she is. Yeah, yeah. I think I just screwed that up too, how, uh, I ran into her before I came here.

She’s with Trip Johnson. Well, he’s back in town. Yeah. Kayla’s his stepmom, so he’s. He’s here with Steve. Anyway, I, uh, I picked a fight with him. Okay, well, how bad a fight he tried to punch me. I decked him. Uh, well, what was it about? Oh, about his lunatic mother, maybe Vital. She’s the one who caused the crash that killed Susan, my other grandma.

Needless to say, Wendy. Not impressed with my behavior and I I don’t blame her. You know, I, you’re mad at the world right now and you’re being great about it.

Look, I’m, I’m really sorry that I, uh, made a pass at you. I won’t do it again.

I got off the elevator and the first thing I saw was Johnny and Chanel and they had their arms around each other and they were about to kiss. Okay. Well, to me the important words here are about to what they didn’t actually kiss. Yeah. Only because I showed. If I had gotten there like 10 seconds later, he would’ve been all over.

So then what did you do? Oh, nothing. I didn’t have time to do anything because Sarah showed up and told me about my grandma. Chanel could have been just trying to comfort the guy because he was so broken up. No, Chanel and Johnny are crazy about each other. I mean, they were married. They probably still be married if it wasn’t for Johnny.

Getting possessed by the devil. Yeah. A demonic possession can definitely take its toll on a marriage. I mean, that’s the only reason Chanel and I actually got together. And then she took forever to choose between John and Jeremy. But she chose you and she’s sticking with you. Why? Why are you taking their side?

I’m not taking their side. I am on your side. And look what you saw today could be right or you could be dead wrong. And since you have enough problems going on in your life right now, maybe you should just try trusting them.

I am talking from experience here. What? Having problems with Stephanie. Stephanie’s having problems with me. Major ones. It’s my own damn fault,

Alex. And you are on the F. It’s over. He cheated. I wish it was that. I’ve handled that before. This was worse. Hmm. What’s worse than a man who cheats? My mother died and because of Alex, I wasn’t there. Well, you gonna have to tell me more. Chad Damira found out about mom and so he tried to call me and let me know.

But I was outta the room when the call came in and Alex was alone with my phone. So he looked at the caller, ID saw that it was from Chad. He’s jealous of Chad. So he turned off my phone and didn’t tell me. Ooh, oh boy. It was, it was the worst thing anyone’s ever done to me.

And I was starting to think that maybe Alex and I had a. But that’s over. Now he’s dead to me.

A wonder if or refuse is enjoying his triumph.

Can open man. He’s a monster. Should have been me, Abraham. No, he hated Roman Stephen. Me. What does he do? He goes after the women we. Because he knew it would hurt more.

The devil himself went after Doc twice and she survived that. But Orpheus got her. He was so strong. Straw right to the end


That incredible love that you had for each other. It isn’t gone. It will last forever. I know you’re right. It’s, it’s just that, hey, when, when, when it was just the two of us against the world, we could beat all the odds. So how do, how do I leave this place with, without her? How do I just turn my back on the bat?

How did you do it, buddy? How did, how did you go home to an empty bed without,

do you wanna tour the place? I want you to tell me where Kale is, and Kate is it? Kate made it through the Furley Gates

that Jebel broke every one of the team. And if you did, the Lord didn’t think of that then. I am very well aware of who Kate is and she’s been a good friend to me. And maybe she doesn’t live by everybody’s code, but under. She’s a good person. not good news. She’s definitely like you, Dr. Mar Evans for sure.

Or Dr. Kayla Johnson. Alright, tell me where Kayla is. You can do that, can’t you?


hey. Did that help or did it just make you feel more alone? Not so tied up in

I can.

I am sorry if you felt like I was pushing you away. It, I just got tense when you spoke about your mother. Makes sense. It, um, it brings up a lot of memories of my own mom. Loving her, losing her. She doesn’t exactly make a person wanna have sex. I’m gonna, I’m sorry if that made you feel like I was using you.

No, you needed me. That’s very different and I’m not really used to that. People needing me feeling needed. Well, maybe talking to you can help me understand how to get through it. I don’t really think I’m gonna help you mention that Arina, you don’t seem like the vengeful type. Well, yeah. Tell me how vengeance is working out for you.

Ugh. I hit a bump in the road. The courts in London did not cooperate. That’s, I’m not gonna give up. She now, Dupree and her mother are not gonna get away with what they took from me. There’s other ways to make them pay.

Ugh. I think I’ve given Allie enough time. I better go see how she’s doing. Hey, Chanel, Allie loves you. All right, she’s gonna come around. Thanks for trying to make me feel better. You know, she could, uh, she’d come walking through here at any minute and see us. I’ll risk it. You’re a special person, Johnny Damara.

And I am so sorry. You’re hurting.

So you saw that it was Chad calling. And you turned off Stephanie’s phone and she wasn’t able to be there when Aunt Kayla died.

Go ahead, say what you’re thinking, but I am a selfish idiot who’s getting exactly what he deserves. All right. That might be a little bit dramatic. How do you figure if it had been Uncle Steve or anyone else from the family calling, what would you have done? I would’ve told Stephanie to pick up the phone.

Yeah, exactly right. So you saw that it was Chad calling. , honestly, you know, he’s been kind of a problem. He probably thought he was just butting in again. Exactly right. Okay, so look, you, you misjudged the situation. You messed up. If I was Stephanie, I’d be pissed. But we work through it. Why? Because you would never deliberately keep Stephanie from being at her dying mother’s bedside.

You made a stupid mistake, but I think that means that you deserve to be forgiven.

Ought to be hung up by his thumbs and I, I can’t believe you don’t even know your mama was dying. So you don’t think I’m overreacting? I do not. First of all, your phone is none of his business, but more importantly, he kept you from seeing your mama for the last time. Oh, let me tell you, if a man did me that way, he be singing soprano for the rest of his natural life.

Thank you for the back. You got it. Sometimes I have moments where I think maybe I was too angry. Hopefully you don’t need a man sneaking around trying to arrange your life the way he wants. You ha. You have so much to offer. Thank you for saying that. But I, I still can’t get him to help you with Sloan. I hope you can find another.

Get her out of your life. I am not letting you off the hook yet. Missy. Mm-hmm. . Now you have come through for me in the past and I have faith that you, you can do it again. Cases like this are one in the court of public opinion. That’s your area of expertise Now, branch head on board, that boy smart. Yeah. He is not hard to look at either.

Alex will probably just think you’re doing it to get to. Alex can think whatever he wants. I couldn’t care less what? This is a very big place. I mean, it makes New York City look like an you want, I’m asking you to try. Hi. Okay. All

here we are here to Jay. All right, we’ve got Andrew, Jack, lady Bird. Now we are already past the case. Well uh, try her maiden name, which day. Brady. Oh, I should, she’s still with romance. Kimberly and Bo? Yes. Oh, oh, here we are. Bogar, Aurelius Brady here. Yep. Except there’s Esri’s, Neer’s name and I really don’t know what that means.

And we’re looking for Kayla. She’s head.

I’ll start thinking about how to spend this and then I’ll give you a call. Mm-hmm. . Oh no. Take some time. Take some time to grieve, but get ready for War ii. . Oh, I wish I could do this myself, but I’m too much a part of it. Oh, Sloane made my baby a target and I went to DEF com one. Mm-hmm. . Oh, my mom would’ve done the same thing if anybody came from one of us.

They’d have to go through her first.

You and I are gonna open a bottle of wine one night, step dollar, and then you going to tell me all about her, but do yourself a favor. Don’t focus on not getting to say goodbye. You’ll never escape the pain. You’re not pretty sure you and your mother were past needing words and she died knowing how much you loved her.

Just, just think. Just remember all the good times and smile when you’re thinking of them, and she’ll never be far away.

You actually managed to give me some hope. Maybe Stephanie comes around. Here’s to you the only one so far to have my back.

Hey Alex, what are you doing here? I ran into him when you heard about grandma. Yeah, it was nice enough to offer me a shoulder to cry on, you know, like you did

No corner.

Know you’ve got your children. Yeah. Your grandchildren. They need you. They need you, buddy. They, that’s, that’s what will make you go on. You can do it, buddy. You can do it. You just came reminding me of that. Okay,

John, look, you know, why don’t you come home with me? I mean, just, just stay with Paulina and me for no buddy. You know what? That’s just gonna post Paul. Inevitable. I need to be in a place where I can feel Doc’s presence, and that is our home. I need to climb into our bed. I need to smell her perfume on her pillow.

I need to look at her picture on my night. And just fall under those eyes again. I know it’s gonna be hard as hell partner, but that is what I need right now.

I don’t know why Taylor’s not on the list. Well, she’s new. Her paperwork hasn’t come through yet. I mean, you wouldn’t believe how long I had to wait to see the king.

You had a meeting with God No better. Oh, I gotta talk to El Eric Presley, don’t you? I mean, I got to tell him how much I love his singing and we got to take a selfie together. I mean, I was gonna right there, but you know what? Dead. Well, you know what? She’s around here sometimes. She is. She is. You know what?

I’m here to, I’m here to help you make that transition over to the other.

You know, one of the things that I learned during my years as a priest is that’s a hunger for revenge isn’t a natural instinct. It’s more of an obsession. Is there anything that makes it go away?

I have one.

If I could just think of some of those strategies.

Hey, Steph, it’s me, aka the jackass. Look, I know I don’t have the right to ask you for anything, but could you maybe just give me a chance to make this up to you? I’m talking groveling here. You and I had something so great going and I don’t want to give up on that. That’s all I wanted to say.

Well, I think I’m gonna take off, no, that Chan knows back. No, no, don’t do that. Hey, you know what? Maybe we could have another threesome because I know first Chanel life would just means getting a little bit boring. That is not true. And don’t put Alex in the middle of this. You know, I’m sorry I wasn’t really in the mood anyways.

It’s been a pretty long and awful day for me, so I’m gonna try and get some. Henry’s room.

How’s John doing? Well, it’s going to be in a bad place for a very long time. Marna was his life.

Everyone who dies, they get God here like a guardian. And look at me. They want me for yours.

What is it that, the transition you’re talking about? Well, it’s hard for folks to, uh, accept that they’re really gone and to let go of their loved. I myself had a devil of a time. I accept that my Elvis Junior, I, I was never gonna see him again, and I know that it’s not gonna be easy for you to let go of the love of your life, Mr.

John kept, kept telling me I was going to pull through. He must be in so much pain. He is. He’s crushed, but he is his kids and the rest, family and friends, my children. Dear God, see, it’s just like you. I what? 20 You thought about yourself, oh, three seconds, and then you worried about child black and your kids, but that is why you made it.

Now I see paperwork, pay for work, and you need to get some rest. You’ve been through enough for one day. I can’t rest. I’ve got so many questions. Yes, the answers are gonna all be revealed. Yes,

Thank you. Welcome up. Tail. Here you go. And now I’m gonna have you walk right through and we’re gonna have a fresh start after you get some rest. Okay, let’s scoot. Scoot, scoot, scoot, scoot, scoop. There we go.
