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

Kyle: Oh, it sure is.

Phyllis: We seem to have misplaced your dad.

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

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

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

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

Phyllis: You’ve bonded with Harrison, too.

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

Phyllis: That’s great.

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

***************

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

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

Noah: Wait. Seriously?

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

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

Summer: You are lying.

Kyle: Mnh, it’s the truth.

Summer: No.

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

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

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

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

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

Billy: I highly doubt that.

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

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

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

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

Billy: No, that’s not true, vick.

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

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

Ashland: [ Sighs ]

[ Laughter ]

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

Kyle: Oh, it sure is.

Phyllis: We seem to have misplaced your dad.

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

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

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

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

Phyllis: You’ve bonded with harrison, too.

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

Phyllis: That’s great.

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

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

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

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

Noah: Wait. Seriously?

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

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

Summer: You are lying.

Kyle: Mnh, it’s the truth.

Summer: No.

[ Laughter ]

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

Summer: Yeah.

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

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

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ]

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

Kyle: Oh, um, me?

Summer: Yeah.

Kyle: Well, I have a solution for that.

Summer: Great, great.

[ Chuckles ]

Noah: Oh, wait for me.

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

Nick: All good. Nothing to worry about.

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

Adam: What’s your next move?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tessa: I’m so excited.

Nate: So, where’s mariah?

Elena: Yeah. Is she resting after the flight?

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

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

Mariah: Mm-hmm. In grisly detail.

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

Mariah: Definitely.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kyle: Hmm?

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

Jack: The good guys won.

Kyle: Hurrah!

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

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

Kyle: Come with me?

Summer: Yeah, sure.

Kyle: Alright. We’ll be back.

Jack: See you around.

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

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

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

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

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

Nick: [ Chuckles ] Right.

Noah: I wonder where ashland and aunt victoria are.

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

[ Clears throat ]

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

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

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

Victoria: Please don’t go there.

Ashland: What else could this be about?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mariah: Thank you for understanding.

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

Mariah: But dominic isn’t my baby.

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

Mariah: I remember the stories.

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

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

Kevin: I’m glad to hear that.

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

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

Mariah: Yes.

Kevin: I’m in.

Mariah: [ Laughs ]

Kevin: Okay.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tessa: Oh, my gosh, hi!

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

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

Victor: I can hardly wait.

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

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

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

Leslie: Excellent. Do you know any standards?

Tessa: Jazz? Absolutely.

Leslie: [ Chuckles ] And I do take requests.

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

Victor: There you go.

[ Sighs ]

Adam: Hey, pop.

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

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

Noah: How’s it going, adam?

Adam: Fine. You?

Noah: Doing okay. Thanks for asking.

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

Adam: Eh, nick — he’s not that bad.

Nick: I guess I can deal with him.

[ “Finally” plays ]

Your love gets in the way

of the bad things people say

my feet were broken and bleedin’

you washed my sins away

my heart needed dreamin’

finally

I found somethin’ strong and steady

I know I’m ready

for someone like you

finally

I’m runnin’ to someone great

who wants me to feel safe

finally

finally

this affair

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Damn you, billy.

Tessa: Is definitely worth keepin’

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

Tessa: Dancin’ like little kids

up on the ceiling

who knows where we are going

the road might be steep ahead

but you’ll always have my hand

finally

I found somethin’ strong and steady

I know I’m ready for someone like you

finally

I’m runnin’ to someone great

who wants me to feel safe

finally

finally what can I du with less asthma?

Victoria: That’s odd.

[ Door closes ]

Sally: [ Sighs heavily ]

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

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

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

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

Lily: Simple as that, huh?

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

Lily: And what about the wedding?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Chuckles ]

Adam: Enjoying your evening?

Elena: Yeah. Very much so. You?

Adam: Ah. What’s not to like, right?

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

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

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

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

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

Jack: I’m sure victor’s glad he did.

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

Jack: Wh–

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

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

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

Phyllis: Not soon enough.

Nikki: So beautiful.

Tessa: Oh, thank you.

Nikki: Oh, my goodness.

Tessa: Thank you.

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

Tessa: Oh, thank you.

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

Leslie: Shall we?

[ “You’re the best thing” plays ]

Tessa: You’re the best thing

that’s happened to me

the key to my heart

you’re the best thing

that’s happened to me

I knew from the start

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

Tessa: We complement each other

Victor: Everything alright?

Victoria: [ Sighs ]

Victor: What?

Tessa: Like sister and brother

like hops and malt

sugar and salt

fall and spring

yang and ying feeling stressed in your skin?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

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

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

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

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

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

Nick: I don’t see it like that.

Phyllis: Oh. Alright.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Cellphone ringing ]

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

Tessa: It’s pretty late.

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

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

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

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

Mariah: Me too. Bye.

[ Mug thuds ]

Noah: Hi.

Tessa: Well, hi yourself.

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

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

Adam: I really hope you are managing your expectations.

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

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

Sally: Everything’s riding on this.

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

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

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

Adam: Congratulations. How was the wedding?

Summer: [ Scoffs ] What is she doing here?

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

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

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

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

Kyle: Think victoria knew he was planning this?

Jack: No, I don’t think so.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Adam: You too.

Victor: Yes, ashland?

Ashland: [ Whispering indistinctly ]

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

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

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

Mariah: What was she dressed as?

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

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

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

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

[ Both laugh ]

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

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

Tessa: Noah, that’s great.

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

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

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

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

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

Tessa: Well, how?

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

Tessa: Well, that sounds pretty cynical.

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

[ Both laugh ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tessa: Yes.

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

Tessa: Yeah, you’re good at that.

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

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

Noah: Yeah, you know, borderline boring.

Tessa: Ugh. A real snore.

[ Both laugh ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nate: Mmm.

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

Nate: Mm.

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

Nate: Mmm. I like the sound of that.

[ Soft, romantic piano music plays ]

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

Nate: It still can.

Elena: Mmm.

Lily: We never made it to the party.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] You distracted me.

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

Billy: Mm-hmm.

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

Billy: ‘Cause of the beautiful music?

Lily: Well, I mean, it doesn’t suck.

[ Both chuckle ]

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

Billy: Is there anything else you admire about me?

Lily: [ Whispering indistinctly ]

Billy: I’ll take it.

Phyllis: Oh, good night, you two.

Elena: Night, night.

Nate: We’ll see you in the morning.

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

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

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

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

Phyllis: I almost forgive you.

Nick: You gonna make me work for it?

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. I am.

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

[ Door opens ]

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Where were you?

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

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

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

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

Victoria: [ Laughs ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

**†************

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

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

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

Ashland: Yeah, he’s probably laying low.

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

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

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

Ashland: That’ll be very satisfying for you.

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

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

Victoria: [ Sighs ] That sounds good to me.

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

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

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

Billy: Very carefully.

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

****************

Jack: It is the beauty of family.

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

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

Phyllis: Who? Billy?

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

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

Victoria: Something’s wrong. What is it?

Ashland: I’m through hiding things from you —

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jack: Hey!

Billy: Hey.

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

Billy: Not long ago. Hello, nikki.

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

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

Jack: What do you think that’s about?

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

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

Victoria: How bad was it?

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

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

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

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

Ashland: Yeah, he’s probably laying low.

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

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

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

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

Victoria: [ Sighs ] That sounds good to me.

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

Victoria: Okay.

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

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

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

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

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

Nick: Then let’s just leave.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Noah: Did you learn something bad?

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

Noah: He clearly didn’t win you over.

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

Noah: So tell her that.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Victor: Well.

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

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

Nikki: Okay, um…

Victor: Mm-hmm.

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

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

Jack: There seems to be some intrigue afoot.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Leslie: Jack abbott, how long has it been?

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

Leslie: We do indeed.

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

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

Nikki: Oh.

[ Laughter ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jack: Well, I will drink to that.

[ Indistinct conversation ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

Phyllis: Where’s he rushing off to?

Jack: That’s a good question.

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

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

Victoria: I’m ready.

Ashland: [ Chuckles ]

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

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

Victoria: I am so elated to have you here.

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

Victor: We have come full circle.

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

Ashland: Enchanted.

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

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

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

[ Laughter ]

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

Nikki: I love that one.

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

Nikki: Oh.

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

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

Victor: By all means.

Leslie: As the evening progress.

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

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

Victoria: [ Chuckles ]

Victor: Shall we?

Leslie: Shall we?

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

Leslie: Yes.

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

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

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

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

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

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

Billy: Damn it, where are you?

Lily: I’m right here.

Billy: Hi.

Lily: Hi.

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

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

Billy: Yeah, well, no one told me.

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

Billy: Okay.

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

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

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

Billy: How’s mattie?

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

Billy: Yeah, me too.

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

Billy: What do you mean?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lily: Wow, that’s huge.

Billy: I know.

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

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

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

Billy: I paid him off.

Lily: How much?

Billy: A hefty sum.

Lily: How hefty?

Billy: A duffel bag full of cash.

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

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

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

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

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

Billy: I haven’t told her yet.

Lily: Why not?

Billy: Because I lost the evidence.

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

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

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

Noah: It’s good to see you, too.

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

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

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

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

Ashland: Don’t I know it?

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

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

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

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

[ Laughs ]

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

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

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

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

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

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

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

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

Summer: Buona sera, everyone!

Nikki: Oh!

[ Applause ]

Summer: Hi! [ Chuckles ]

Lily: Wait, you lost the evidence? How?

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

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

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

Phyllis: Oh!

Summer: Hi. Hi. Where’s dad? Hi.

Victoria: Oh, look at you!

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Ashland: Good to see you.

Victoria: Congratulations. You’re glowing.

Kyle: Oh, well, thank you.

Victoria: I wish I could’ve been there.

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

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

Summer: Right?

Victoria: Yes.

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

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

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

[ Chuckles ]

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

Victoria: Well, it sounds very glamorous.

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

Harrison: Father!

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

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

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Summer: I’m his only friend.

Kyle: [ Laughs ]

Summer: No, it was just us.

Kyle: No, yeah. My father…

Summer: No.

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

Summer: Just us.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

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

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

Jack: Wait, really?

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

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

Nate: That was sublime, leslie, really.

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

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

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

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Elena: That is a really good point.

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

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

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

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

Nikki: It’s so nice having noah here.

Nick: It is, isn’t it?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jack: I thought you liked a little drama.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jack: And that’s a bad thing because?

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

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

Phyllis: Ohhh, that’s exhausting.

Jack: My having your back is exhausting?

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

Jack: Whatever you say.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Summer: Um, I think we did.

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

[ Both laugh ]

Summer: Okay.

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

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

Noah: I can tell europe agrees with you.

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

Noah: Yeah, you married old lady.

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

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

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

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

Summer: Yeah. Yeah, I suppose so.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lily: Right.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Taps on glass ]

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

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

A la famiglia.

All: A la famiglia.

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

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

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

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

Victor: Careful.

Gaines: Ashland. Many happy returns of the day.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nate: And my amazing date.

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

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

Ashland: You smug bastard.

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

Victoria: Ashland, you out here?

Gaines: Enjoy the rest of your evening, lovebirds.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Door opens ]

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

[ Knock on door ]

Jack: Hey!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jack: [ Chuckles ]

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

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

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

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Victor: Hey, my boy.

Nick: This place looks great.

Victor: Doesn’t it?

Nick: Hey, mom.

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

Nick: Hey, dad.

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

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

Victor: Hmm.

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

Nate: [ Sighs heavily ]

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

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

Elena: But?

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

Elena: Ah.

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

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

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

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

Nate: Where?

Elena: To find some romantic inspiration.

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

Ashland: Is it, though?

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

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

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

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

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

Billy: Very carefully.

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

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

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

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

Gaines: So, what’s your plan?

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

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

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

[ Door closes ]

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

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

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

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

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

Ashland: Mm.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jack: It is the beauty of family.

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

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

Phyllis: Who? Billy?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nick: Are you saying I’m a problem?

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

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

Victor: Yeah.

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

Elena: [ Chuckles ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nate: Sharing professional interests can bring two people together.

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

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

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

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

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

Nate: Maybe I need to do a little research.

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

Nate: Mm.

Billy: Hey, you two.

Elena: Hey.

Nate: Hope you got an extra glass for me.

Nate: Billy. You made it.

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

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

[ Chuckles ]

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

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

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

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

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

[ Door opens ]

Ashland: [ Coughs ]

[ Breathing heavily ]

Victoria: Are you okay?

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

[ Coughs ]

Victoria: Have you been taking your medication?

Ashland: Yes. I’m okay. Really.

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

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

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

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

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

Ashland: Really? Can I get a preview?

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

Ashland: Well, then I will enjoy the anticipation.

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

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

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

Ashland: [ Exhales heavily ]

[ Coughs ]

[ Sighs ]

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

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

Jack: Yeah, that would be bad.

Phyllis: Yeah.

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

Phyllis: Yeah.

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

Jack: It’s not bad news. Take a look.

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

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

[ Door closes ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Footsteps approaching ] People everywhere living with type 2 diabetes

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

Victor: That alright with you, my sweetheart?

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

Victor: You two work it out, okay?

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

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

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

Victor: I only hope you’re right.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Victoria: But that’s exactly what you did.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ashland: [ Coughing ]

[ Gasping ]

Billy: Looks like you could use some help.

Ashland: [ Coughs ]

Billy: What can I do?

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

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

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

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

Nick: What does that even mean?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nick: [ Sighs ]

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

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

Billy: You don’t look fine, ashland.

Ashland: I could use a glass of water.

[ Coughs ]

[ Breathing deeply ]

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

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

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

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

Billy: Okay. Go ahead.

Victor: What the hell are you doing here?

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

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

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

Victoria: Jack!

Nikki: Oh, you made it!

Victoria: Welcome!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jack: Victoria seems a little tense. Everything alright?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nate: Nikki. Jack.

Nikki: Hey, nate!

Jack: Elena! Good to see you.

Elena: Great to see you, jack.

Nikki: I hope you’ve been enjoying yourselves.

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

Nate: We’ve already visited the neighborhood winery.

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

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

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

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

Nikki: Ohh!

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

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

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

Nikki: Yes, he certainly is.

[ Chuckles ]

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

Nick: That’s an understatement.

[ Sighs ]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[ Sighs ]

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

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

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

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

Victor: Now get out.

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

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

Ashland: Another complication?

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

Ashland: Lily, I would assume.

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

Ashland: So, who was with billy?

Victor: Jesse gaines.

Ashland: [ Sighs heavily ]

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

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

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

Nate: I second that.

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

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

Nikki: Perfect for a wedding.

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

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

Phyllis: Seriously? Are we leaving?

Nick: [ Sighs ]

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

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

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

Victoria: What’s going on?

Billy: Gaines, time to get ready. Gaines.

[ Sighs ] Damn it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

*************************

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

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

Billy: [ Chuckles ] There’s one good thing about knowing you for as long as i have. I can see right through you, and you’ve got nothing. You know what happened? Your father called you and told you to jump, and you said, “how high?” Your own father doesn’t trust you with the details. Who’s pathetic now?

Ashland: I’m hoping a genuine Italian espresso will give me the jolt that I need. I didn’t sleep very well.

Victoria: Was your bed not comfortable?

Ashland: [ Sigh deeply ] Well, [Smacks lips] I couldn’t get past the fact that you weren’t in it.

Victoria: Oh, I see. So, I’m the reason for your insomnia?

Ashland: No, I did not say that. I know that I have to give you all the space that you needed.

*******************

Nikki: Oh, just beautiful. I mean, not as big of an affair as yours, of course, but it was just so simple and elegant. And, oh, do I have some photos to show you.

Victor: Some photos? How about 800 of them

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Adam: I’m looking for gaines.

Billy: Who?

Adam: Jesse gaines. Are you really gonna pretend like you don’t know who he is, billy?

Billy: I’ll pretend however i have to to get you the hell out of here so I can go upstairs and pack for tuscany.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Relax, billy. You can sleep in tomorrow, because you’re not going to tuscany. You’re not getting anywhere near victoria’s wedding.

Billy: Yeah, and who’s gonna stop me, adam, you?

Adam: If you’re smart, it won’t come to that. You’ll stop yourself from making a move that, I promise you, you will live to regret.

Victoria: Are you hiding out in here?

Ashland: I was hoping you would join me. We haven’t had a chance to talk since your parents arrived and you made it clear that the wedding was still on.

Victoria: What is there to talk about? Everything’s happening as planned.

Ashland: Well, I wanted to know more about your decision process.

Victoria: Why? You seemed happy when you heard the news.

Ashland: I was. I am. But —

Victoria: Something has changed?

Ashland: [ Sighs ] I want nothing more in this life than to be your husband, and i was thrilled to hear that you still intend to walk down that aisle, but…now I’m not sure you should. I think…perhaps I should call off the wedding.

Victor: Baby. I’m surprised you’re back so soon. I thought you were checking on the wedding preparations.

Nikki: Ah, yes, I was. Kind of.

Victor: What do you mean “kind of”?

Nikki: I was speaking with ashland.

Victor: Oh.

Nikki: After hearing everything he finally confessed to victoria, I was urging him to back out of the wedding.

Victor: You did what?

Nikki: Of course, I don’t know if he will or not, but he knows how I feel.

Victor: How could you? We are sending mixed messages. I just told victoria how happy i was that she was marrying ashland.

Tessa: [ Sighs ] I just wish you were coming to italy like we originally planned. I’m gonna hate being there without you, and I don’t like the idea of you being by yourself here.

Mariah: Why? Are you scared to leave me alone?

Tessa: I didn’t say that.

Mariah: You didn’t have to. You are worried that I’m gonna fall apart or I’m gonna start freaking out over dominic.

Tessa: Okay, you’re putting words in my mouth. I didn’t think anything like that. I’m not scared to leave you alone, but, yeah, I’m concerned.

Mariah: It’s fine. I’m going to be fine. I’m not in crisis mode. I just want to be nearby in case dominic still has a cold or any problems come up.

Tessa: Okay, um…well, what exactly are you going to do if something comes up?

Mariah: I still want to be the person who protects him like I did before he was born. My mind knows that it isn’t my job. It’s just that my heart — my heart hasn’t caught up.

Tessa: I get that. I’m sorry.

Mariah: I’m doing my best to accept that my role in the baby’s life has changed. That’s why I’m keeping my distance from him.

Tessa: Except you aren’t, really, if you feel like you need to be within a 10-mile radius of him just in case.

Mariah: I realize that it doesn’t make a lot of sense to you, but that’s just what i need.

Tessa: Okay, I’m sorry. I just — I just — I really want you to get back to your old self again. No, I’m sorry, scratch that. I don’t want you to erase what happened. I know that that experience changed you, and that’s fine by me. I love every version of you. All I care about is helping you find your way back to being happy again.

Mariah: Well, I know something that would make me happy — having a baby of our own. You know, it would give me a new sense of focus and purpose, but you took that completely off the table, so where do I go from here?

Additional sponsorship

provided by… doesn’t your family deserve the best?

Tessa: All I want is for us to take our time and really plan for our future as parents. You know what? That gives me an idea. If you come to tuscany, after the wedding, maybe we can stay in italy for a few days and just bop around.

Mariah: How many times do i have to tell you? I am not comfortable with going.

Tessa: Well, just, you know, think about it. I mean, it could be a mini vacation. Just picture us in rome, walking around the pantheon. Maybe being somewhere that’s thousands of years old would give us some perspective.

Mariah: So, contemplating ancient ruins with tourists and souvenir salesmen. Yeah, I just don’t think that I’m up for it.

Tessa: Okay, well, then we will just do something that’s not in the guidebooks. Oh, maybe that italian metal band that we like that won eurovision, maybe they’re doing a gig. Maybe just screaming in a crowd of thousands of people after being with the fancy newmans will really be what we need.

Mariah: That does sound like us. And I haven’t been to a concert in so long.

Tessa: It would be fun, cathartic. And afterward, when we’re relaxed and rejuvenated, we can start talking about a family.

Mariah: So, now it sounds suspiciously like a bribe. Luring me to tuscany with the promises of planning for our future baby?

Tessa: Is it working?

Victoria: Why would you change your mind about going through with the wedding?

Ashland: Because I wasn’t seeing beyond what I wanted, until I spoke with nikki.

Victoria: What did my mother say to you?

Ashland: She was worried that you were moving forward with the wedding for all the wrong reasons. And if that’s true, that would devastate me. I want you to be happy. I want this to be the best day of your life, and if it’s not…

Victoria: I know my mother meant well, but she’s wrong. I’m doing exactly what I need to do.

Ashland: Marrying me to avoid questions and the potential scandal, to protect the company.

Victoria: It’s in both of our best interests.

Ashland: You know, a year ago, I would have been right there with you. Guard the company at all costs. That was always my standard operating procedure.

Victoria: It’s not anymore?

Ashland: No. Your love has profoundly changed me. And I know I betrayed that love by keeping secrets from you. And I can see how deeply wounded you are. Earlier, when you could barely look at me when you were talking about the wedding preparations? That destroyed me. I do not want you to go through with this marriage if your heart is no longer in it.

Nikki: After everything ashland has kept from victoria, you’re okay with this wedding? How are you not as shocked as i am? Oh. Oh.

Victor: What?

Nikki: How long have you known the details about ashland’s past?

Victor: Oh, a while.

Nikki: Mm-hmm. And you kept it quiet from me and from our daughter.

Victor: Let me just say i didn’t want the press to get ahold of the information, alright? And I certainly didn’t want billy boy to get ahold of it.

Nikki: Well, what exactly does billy know?

Victor: How the hell do i know? I think he’s continued the investigation as we speak.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] I could say a lot about him, also about how you have handled this, but I am mostly concerned about victoria.

Victor: Sweetheart, obviously, so am I.

Nikki: How can you believe it’s a good idea for victoria to get married simply because she thinks it’s good for business? Obviously, her heart is broken.

Adam: Time to wake up. Victoria made her choice. She’s marrying ashland.

Billy: Well, it’s not over until she says “I do.”

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

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

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

Billy: Like a baby. Because I am entirely at peace with trying to stop victoria from marrying a deceitful, duplicitous man like ashland locke.

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

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

Adam: Jesse gaines. Just come off of it. I know you met with this shady character from his past, that goes all the way back to when he started his career. So you know the guy’s father was the lawyer for the woman that gave him his first break.

Billy: Wow, adam, you should be a private investigator, ’cause that’s really great information right there. And this gaines guy sounds like he’s got a really great story, but what I am most intrigued about right now in this moment is you running over here at this hour, wondering if I’m meeting with some guy, when you should be on a plane.

Adam: You gave away your hand when you were practically bragging that someone was gonna help victoria see the light. That was gaines.

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

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

Billy: [ Chuckles ] There’s one good thing about knowing you for as long as i have. I can see right through you, and you’ve got nothing. You know what happened? Your father called you and told you to jump, and you said, “how high?” Your own father doesn’t trust you with the details. Who’s pathetic now?

 

Victor: Sweetheart, if i thought for one moment that marrying ashland would be to victoria’s detriment, I would have asked her to walk away, i would have done that. You know that.

Nikki: Yes, but I don’t know that you are seeing her true feelings underneath her armor. I mean, she always wants to appear to be so tough and in control in front of you, but she’s gotten very good at hiding her hurt and pain.

Victor: Well, I’m not pretending that, you know, she’ll solve the situation with a snap of her fingers. All I know is that she loves him. He loves her. I think that’s the most important thing for our daughter, I really do. I mean, I know that he desperately wants to spend whatever time he has left in his life with her.

Nikki: Well, god knows I want her to be happy. And if this marriage will make her happy, I will support it.

Victor: Well, then let’s not stand in her way.

Adam: I’m actually on the inside of this situation. You are one that’s on the outside with your little nose pressed up against the glass, so whatever you’re trying to do, billy, it’s not gonna work.

Billy: Oh, you mean tell the truth?

Adam: No. Divert attention away from the matter at hand. Now, my father and I, we are in complete agreement that victoria deserves to have her wedding go off without a hitch.

Billy: Can we please skip this little dance? You try to convince me that you’re a changed man and you’ve turned the corner and you’re actually somewhat of a decent human being or a good brother?

Adam: It’s fine by me. I don’t give a damn about your opinion because I know that i have changed.

Billy: No, adam, you don’t give a damn about your sister, and she barely tolerates you.

Adam: I’m not gonna pretend like we’re close, but things are a lot better than they’ve ever been, and you know what? I respect her as a businesswoman.

Billy: That’s very sweet of you, and you should, because your father does. He put her in charge. Yes, he’s had somebody else sit in that chair over the years, but he’s always looked over their shoulder, micro-managing them. Not this time. He has fully put her in charge.

Adam: Yeah, ’cause he’s focused on his new venture with me.

Billy: That’s what it is. It’s got to kill you that you got the consolation prize, right? You’re stuck with newman media.

Adam: I’m thrilled to be at the helm of newman media. I’m proud to be working with my father, and I’m actually doing everything I can to restore my relationships with my brother and my sisters. See, I’m not out to destroy anyone’s life, unlike you, billy, because you are now the destructive one.

Billy: I am protecting victoria and my kids.

Adam: I don’t buy that for a second. Victoria can take care of herself and johnny and katie. She doesn’t need you to save her or help her, and that’s why i know this isn’t even about her, it’s about you and your jealousy and insecurity to let go in this little delusional belief that you know what’s best.

Billy: Okay. I am not jealous. That’s not what this is about.

Adam: You may have moved on from victoria a long time ago, but it kills you that she moved on and she’s marrying a man that is superior to you in so many ways, billy. He’s a better businessman than you. He’s an actual grown-up, not a man-child, and I’m sure that he will treat her better than you ever will.

Billy: Are you the president of his fan club all of a sudden?

Adam: No, I’ll leave that title to victoria. But I’ve gotten to know the guy a little bit, and I like him. But the most important thing is I think he’s a good influence on your kids.

Billy: Don’t mention me and don’t mention victoria and don’t ever talk about my kids.

Adam: Relax. We’re just talking.

Billy: You got a plane to catch, and so do I. So unless you plan to drug me and lock me away until after the wedding, get the hell out of here.

Adam: You know, I don’t have to stop you, billy, ’cause you’re gonna fail. This whole thing, it’s gonna blow up in your face. And, man, I can’t wait to have a front-row seat to your humiliation.

[ Scoffs ]

Victoria: You think you have me all figured out, but even when I was furious with you, I never said that my heart wasn’t in it.

Ashland: I’m so sorry that i hurt you by hiding the truth. And I’m sorry that the person that I was all those years ago has come back to threaten what we have built together. For decades, I have done everything in my power to preserve my success. The irony of all of that is not lost on me. Not in comparison to what you feel about me. The real me. And now that you know the entire story…what are you thinking when you look at me?

Victoria: When I couldn’t sleep last night, all I could think about was what you told me about your past. And I asked myself what would i do if I was in your position.

Ashland: I have no doubt that you would have done the morally right thing in each instance, because you’re a good person.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ]

Ashland: And there is a line that you would never cross.

Victoria: What does that make you?

Ashland: A ruthless, sometimes self-serving man who wants to be better. Because of you. And I want to live because of you. And I want a chance to make amends because of you.

Victoria: I believe you. I do, and I want to give you that chance.

[ Sighs ] Because, despite everything, i love you. I always will. I still want to be your wife.

Ashland: God, I love you.

Itchy?

Mariah: Your offer is tempting. I would love to spend some time with you in italy.

Tessa: So join me.

Mariah: Tessa, I wish i could, but I am not ready to pull away from dominic. That’s just my reality.

Tessa: Okay.

Mariah: Moving out of the mansion was a huge step for me, the correct step. But I still have a lot of issues that I need to take care of so i can comfortably disconnect in a healthy way. Abby is dominic’s mom. I know that she’s gonna take care of him. But what if I’m gone and he needs breast milk?

Tessa: Well…there are other options.

Mariah: I know. Abby talked about switching to formula, but I still want to make it clear that I’m here and I’m willing to provide for him. So that means that I ne– I need to stick around. Hopefully you understand?

Tessa: Yeah, I understand… that you’re making a lot of excuses.

Gaines: You hid me upstairs like a mistresS.

Billy: You overstate your allure.

Gaines: Was that who I think it was?

Billy: Yeah, it was adam newman.

Gaines: Victor newman’s son. That’s not good.

Billy: It’s fine, okay? He did not know you were upstairs. Everything’s gonna be okay. But right now, we got to get the show on the road. So let’s go to the airport.

Gaines: Wait a minute, i never agreed to a trip to tuscany with you. That wasn’t part of our arrangement. You see, this is where I say it was a pleasure doing business with you. Ciao.

Billy: No, no, no, you’re not saying ciao. Okay, you need to come with me. I will make it worth your while.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ]

Elena: Ooh.

Nate: I told you we were too early.

Ashland: [ Clears throat ]

Victoria: Oh. Hi, welcome!

Ashland: How was the flight over?

Elena: Hey, it was perfect. I mean, it was a private jet. How could it not be? There were no babies crying, no one kicking the back of my seat or hogging the arm rest, and we had champagne.

Nate: Mm, thank you for arranging all of that.

Ashland: Well, it’s my pleasure. It’s the least I can do for my best man and his lovely lady.

Nate: Just so you know, I am taking my duties seriously. Anything you need, I am here for you. And, victoria, as your friend, too, my wedding party responsibilities don’t stop with ashland.

Victoria: Oh, so kind of you, but, listen, my only request is that you enjoy every moment and you show elena a great time. Everything’s under control.

Elena: [ Chuckles ]

Ashland: Why don’t I show you guys to your room and give you the lay of the land. Excuse me. Right this way. You have always loved vicks vapors.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Gaines: As much as I would love to continue to pad my bank account, there are other factors to consider on a jaunt to italy.

Billy: Like what?

Gaines: You would basically be delivering me into the hands of the two men that I betrayed. How do I know that I can trust you, that you won’t use me and then screw me over and throw me to the wolves?

Billy: Because we want the same thing and you just helped me out big time, okay? So there’s nothing you need to worry about. I’ve got your back.

Gaines: [ Sighs ]

Billy: Listen to me. Neither victor nor ashland are ever gonna do anything with that many people in attendance. We get in, we get out. Everything is fine. The only thing you need to do is tell victoria everything you told me here tonight. Show her the letter proving that ashland locke broke the law and that his career, everything he’s ever done, is built on a pack of lies.

Gaines: You know, it sounds simple enough, but these things have a way of quickly becoming complicated and dangerous.

Billy: You need to trust me. I will get you out of there safely without an ounce of risk. And we can come up with another financial arrangement that squashes your concerns about being in the same location as lurch and locke.

Gaines: While I am feeling a little bit more open-minded, I’m still not fully on board here.

Billy: Okay. Well, there’s one more argument that I can make. There is something in this for you far sweeter than any amount of money.

Nate: Hey, hey, hey. You seem a little unsteady. Are you okay?

Ashland: You know, I’m gonna say this to you and only you, I’m not feeling that great, but I will be damned if I’m going to let anything get in the way of this wedding to victoria.

Elena: That view is unbelievably stunning.

Ashland: I agree. I can’t imagine a more perfect setting for this ceremony, and i want you to thank you so much for your sage advice and support the other day when I was feeling down. I took your advice, and i followed my heart. And it seems like it worked out pretty well.

Elena: I think you should tell him.

Nate: I don’t want to bring the mood down, but elena and i bumped into billy before we took off. He alluded to some information he learned about you. Maybe some of the things you were concerned about when you and I last spoke.

Elena: He made it very clear that he hopes the wedding won’t happen.

Ashland: Yeah, well, I truly appreciate your warning, but victoria and I and her parents are fully aware of billy’s intentions, and despite whatever he may think, there’s nothing he can do to stop the wedding.

Nate: Well, that’s good to hear.

Ashland: Listen, this has nothing to do with the two of you. I want you guys to go settle in, go get a glass of wine or two, and I’ll catch up with you in a little while, okay?

Nate: Alright, thanks.

Ashland: Thank you.

Elena: See you soon. Well, I’m glad ashland doesn’t seem worried, ’cause it would be a shame if billy caused trouble in paradise. Because this place is definitely paradise.

[ Chuckles ]

Nate: Look at you. You seem calmer and looser than you’ve been in weeks.

Elena: You know, I think i really am. Although, I was a bit anxious when we were driving through florence. I mean, there’s so much to see. I don’t know how we’re gonna get it all in. From sight-seeing to wedding festivities, and we’re only here a few days.

Nate: We can’t, but I have a solution. We could plan a trip to come back, see all the tourist-y things.

Elena: Well, I would love that.

Nate: But we need to prioritize what we want to see the most on this trip.

Elena: Well, you’re the expert. What are your can’t-miss sights?

Nate: The theater of silence. It’s this serene natural amphitheater, and there’s this jaw-dropping waterfall nearby.

Elena: Well, I would love to see that with you. Although, if your plan was to get me to relax, you’re failing, because the thought of being with you in such an idyllic place makes my heart race.

Nate: Mine, too.

Victor: Wow.

Nikki: [ Sighs ]

Victor: The ambiance.

Nikki: It is magical.

Victor: I think just being here is going to — is going to help ashland and victoria along, you know? I mean, who can help but fall in love more?

Nikki: [ Chuckles ] No one.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Victor: Oh.

[ Sighs ] Yeah, so…I got to take this, okay?

Nikki: What? What’s going on?

Victor: I have to take care of something, my love.

Nikki: Oh.

Victor: Be right back.

 

Mariah: I am not making excuses. I have legit reasons for wanting to stay in genoa city.

Tessa: I didn’t intend to sound harsh. I get it, it just — ah! This is all so complicated. I didn’t mean to put any pressure on you or make you feel like I’m not with you 100%, because I am.

Mariah: Well, sometimes it doesn’t feel that way.

Tessa: This is hard. For both of us. And it just came out the wrong way. I promised I wouldn’t let you go through any of this alone, and i meant it. I’m here for you, and I’m here to help you in any way I can.

Mariah: Then stay with me. Please, don’t go to the wedding.

Nikki: Benvenuti!

Elena: Nikki! You look gorgeous. Mwah!

Nikki: Oh, thank you. So do you. Italy brings out the best in everybody.

Nate: Thank you for having us, nikki.

Nikki: I’m just so happy that you could be here, and I am thrilled to be the matron of honor to your best man.

Nate: Oh, well, the honor is all mine.

Nikki: [ Chuckles ]

Elena: And this palazzo is gorgeous.

Nikki: Oh, thank you. Isn’t it something? Victor and I gave it to victoria and ashland for their wedding present.

Nate: Wow. [ Chuckles ] That is one amazing gift.

Elena: Yes, and I’m sure it’s gonna be filled with lots of special memories for the newlyweds.

Nikki: Oh, I hope so.

Nate: And I’m looking forward to catching up with you and victor.

Nikki: Well, so are we. Victor had to step out for a minute. You know my husband, it’s always something.

[ Light laughter ]

Adam: Gaines was spotted entering billy’s apartment building tonight. So I went over there and i confronted billy about it, who denied knowing who the guy was, but he was being even more smug than usual, so I think the two of them are colluding.

Victor: Really?

Adam: I did everything i could to try to dissuade him from coming to italy, but he seems more fired up than even before to stop the wedding.

Victor: Well, son, I’m not blaming you, okay? I know you did everything you could.

Adam: Well, I was at a slight disadvantage since you didn’t give me any specifics on gaines or how he’s a threat to victoria and ashland.

Victor: I did not tell you because I didn’t trust you — nothing to do with that. I just didn’t want to disseminate the information for victoria’s sake, alright? I hadn’t even told nikki about it.

Adam: But you need to tell me now. The more that I know, the more that I can help. And I want to do whatever I can to help you and victoria.

Victor: Okay, I’ll tell you everything.

Gaines: What is that you think is sweeter than money? ‘Cause I can’t think of much.

Billy: Revenge. What did you say when you mentioned you resented ashland? You rightfully resented him for practically stealing your father from you. He got all the praise, he got all the accolades, and you — you got shoved to the sidelines.

Gaines: You really do understand.

Billy: I know a little something about being a black sheep of the family. I’m gonna be honest, jesse, your situation is worse, ’cause ashland used your father for his own good. And sure, he paid you off along the way, but you never got any respect. He still looks down his nose at you.

Gaines: Which is why I am happy to help you expose him for what and who he is. Yeah, it would be a magnificent moment.

Billy: Think about how satisfying it would be to know that you were a part of it. To take down ashland locke. I mean, you’d be able to see the look on his face when he realizes that you were the one with the power all along.

Gaines: You do make a persuasive argument.

Billy: So?

Gaines: When do we leave?

Billy: We’ll get the last flight out. I got to finish packing, make a phone call. Grab yourself a drink or a bite to eat. Make yourself comfortable.

Gaines: Don’t mind if I do. Hey, billy.

Billy: Yeah?

Gaines: This trip is gonna be one for the ages.

Billy: Yeah, it is. You’ll get your long-deserved revenge, and I will stop someone that I care very much about from making one of the biggest mistakes of her life. We’re for those who love to discover.

Mariah: I doubt it would be a problem if you backed out of the performance. I heard that leslie brooks is gonna be there. One fabulous musician should be enough. Or you could say that you’re sick.

Tessa: No, mariah, I can’t do that.

Mariah: Why not?

Tessa: It’s too late. It wouldn’t be right. They’re counting on me.

Mariah: Yeah, yeah, I am — I’m sorry.

Tessa: Yeah, it would be really unprofessional.

Mariah: You’re right. Go, have — have a great time. I’m gonna let you finish packing.

Tessa: Whoa, no, no, no, no. Hey. We have to keep talking about this.

Mariah: No, it’s fine. We don’t have to. We can — we can talk when you get back.

Adam: Ashland has been paying gaines for years to keep the original camilla rhodes letter quiet? Guy built his entire empire off stolen money from mentor’s estate? That’s quite a lot to process. How’s victoria handling it?

Victor: Well, I think her relationship with ashland transcends everything that happened years ago.

Adam: I’m glad to hear that.

Victor: To be frank with you, I think those two belong together.

Adam: And they will be, unless billy shows up shooting his mouth off. Not only would that be mortifying for victoria and ashland, but it would destroy ashland’s legacy, not to mention damage newman/locke and newman media.

Victor: How did you end things with billy?

Adam: I told him he’d be shooting himself in the foot and he would fail, because that’s what billy does. But I’m not sure we can even count on him to fail properly, and I don’t even know if gaines is still in the picture.

Victor: I paid that gaines S.O.B. A lot of money to go away. He didn’T. He broke his word to me.

Adam: So how far do you want me to go to stop them?

Billy: I just wanted to check in with you. I’m just about to leave for italy. How’s california? Oh, good, okay. And how’s mattie? Oh, great. I’m glad to hear that. Yeah, johnny and katie are good. Hannah’s gonna have them all packed up and ready to go when you get back, but I’ll keep you posted. You might not actually have to get on that flight, because if everything goes the way I think it will, there won’t be a wedding to attend.

Elena: Being here, you’re just so transported.

Ashland: It’s a magnificent venue, huh?

Victoria: We just want all of our guests to feel like they’re, you know, like they’re a part of the family, at home with us, enjoying a beautiful celebration.

Nate: Oh, we do.

Victoria: You know, if you guys ever decide to get married, we could loan you the palazzo.

Nate: [ Clears throat ]

Elena: [ Chuckles ] We’ll have to keep that in mind.

Nate: Uh, yeah. Well, you two are making tying the knot look pretty appealing.

Elena: Absolutely. Relationship goals.

Victoria: Well, let me just say, it’s never easy, but communication is key.

Ashland: Just keep talking.

Victor: Well, hello, everybody.

Ashland: Here he is!

Nikki: Hi, darling.

Victor: Don’t let me interrupt.

Victoria: Oh, you’re not. No, not at all. Ashland and I were just saying how lucky we are to have made it this far. And the best is yet to come.

Nate: Mm-hmm.

Victor: See? Everything is going well. And it will continue to go well.

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

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

Nikki: Perfect for a wedding.

Summer: Buona sera, everybody.

Nikki: Oh!

[ Indistinct speaking ]

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Leslie: Where’s the happy couple?

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

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

Victor: The hell are you doing here?

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Ashland: Good morning.

Victoria: Good morning.

Ashland: I’m hoping a genuine italian espresso will give me the jolt that I need. I didn’t sleep very well.

Victoria: Was your bed not comfortable?

Ashland: [ Sigh deeply ] Well, [Smacks lips] I couldn’t get past the fact that you weren’t in it.

Victoria: Oh, I see. So, I’m the reason for your insomnia?

Ashland: No, I did not say that. I know that I have to give you all the space that you need because what I [Inhales deeply] Told you about my past is a lot to process.

[ Sighs ] How did you sleep?

Victoria: I probably did more thinking than I did sleeping.

Ashland: Oh, last night, uh, your primary concern seemed to be about the company. And now that i’ve told you

[Sighs] Everything about my past, and you’ve had time to work through it, I want to know where your head is at. M-more importantly… where’s your heart? Are we having a wedding?

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Nikki: Victoria?

Victor: What good news!

Nikki: Ashland? What are you both doing here?

Billy: Yes, lily is flying back from california. Then, she’s gonna pick up johnny and katie. The three of them together will fly to italy. I’m going earlier. There’s a work emergency — a fire that I need to put out. One other thing, hannah. Do you mind letting victoria know the change of plans? She’s not taking my calls at the moment. Yeah. Okay, I appreciate it. I will. Thank you.

Gaines: Putting out fires, huh? Seems like you’re more interested in burning everything down.

Sally: So, I reached out to a bunch of fashion people in L.A.

Chloe: I thought you ruined all of your relationships there.

Sally: I did. Which is why, when I casually mentioned that I was going to the newman-locke wedding and hinted that there would be some fashion news to follow, I knew that they would turn around to everyone that they knew and say, “guess what sally spectra is up to now.”

Chloe: I can’t believe I let you talk me into this. Our plan now relies on gossipmongers.

Sally: Yeah, well, if we can’t rely on them to spread rumors, you can’t count on anything in this world.

Chloe: It’s just so risky. I mean, and if anything comes out about that wedding, we should be the ones publishing it.

Sally: Okay, first of all, stop saying “if.” There will be news. And second, if newman media’s new fashion platform puts out a story about me designing victoria’s wedding dress, it will look self-serving. But if another outlet does it, it’s a hot scoop. This way, we can get credibility from all these other sources.

Chloe: Okay. I like it. So, we pretend that we got scooped, but we are the ones who really planted the story.

Sally: It’ll be a huge boost for us.

Chloe: Now all you have to do is fly across the ocean with the dress and convince victoria to wear it just days before she walks down the aisle. What could possibly go wrong?

Adam: Any luck finding gaines?

[ Sighs ] Alright. Well, just keep searching. He’s got to be out there somewhere, and I have to find him before I get on a plane to italy.

Victoria: What are you doing here? Aren’t you supposed to be in milan?

Victoria: We left right after the ceremony so that we could come here and make sure everything was ready for your arrival. I am your matron of honor, after all.

Victoria: But we weren’t expecting you for another day. Is there something —

Victor: We just wanted to make sure that everything’s alright, you know? It’s a beautiful day outside. Going to be like that for the rest of the week. Ideal for a wedding. Nope

Additional sponsorship

provided by…

Nikki: Well, I’m glad that we all got here early. It’ll give us a chance to all go over the details, make sure everything is perfect. So, do you have any big concerns about anything?

Victoria: You know, before we get into that, I would love to hear about summer and kyle’s wedding.

Nikki: Oh, just beautiful. I mean, not as big of an affair as yours, of course, but it was just so simple and elegant. And, oh, do I have some photos to show you.

Victor: Some photos? How about 800 of them?

[ Laughter ]

Nikki: Well, he’s not half wrong, there. Wait until you see summer in her marchetti gown. Exquisite. And she and kyle are so much in love, and that really came through in the ceremony.

Victoria: I’m so glad.

Nikki: But the best part of the wedding was little harrison. You know, he was our ring bearer, or as he liked to call it, “ring barrel.”

[ Laughter ]

Victor: By the way, he was the star of the show, you know.

Ashland: Yes.

Victor: And he’s so looking forward to doing the same thing for the two of you.

Ashland: Aww, can’t wait to see him.

Nikki: So, um, is everything good here?

Victoria: Y-yes, everything’s fine. We just wanted to get here early so that I could see firsthand that all of the preparations were being handled on schedule.

Nikki: And is everything to your satisfaction?

Victoria: Oh, so far, yes. But I’d like to show you the terrace. Maybe you have some additional ideas for the decorations.

Nikki: Oh. Sure.

Ashland: [ Inhales deeply ] I’m guessing that you didn’t rush here from milan to check on the floral arrangements.

Victor: I have news from home that’s got me concerned.

Victoria: So, after we got here, ashland finally came clean about the part of his past that he finds so shameful. It has to do with his former mentor, camilla rhodes, and how he acquired her tv stations.

Nikki: Oh. I know a lot of people have questions about that.

Victoria: Billy and nick. And as it turns out, there was something to their suspicions. When camilla passed away, she —

[Sighs] She left ashland her estate.

Nikki: Okay, well, that’s a simple explanation.

Victoria: No, no, mom, unfortunately, it isn’t that simple because she didn’t actually leave him anything. Ashland was working together with camilla’s lawyer, and — and they forged a — a letter that added him to her will.

Nikki: Are you kidding me?!

Victoria: No, I’m not. I’m not kidding you.

Nikki: My god! You know, you’d think that he would have told you, before you got to italy, that his entire empire is based on not a lie but a crime.

Victoria: Great.

Nikki: Oh, you were right to worry that there would be more secrets. This is a big one. And who’s to say it’s the last?

Victoria: I think that it might be. He swears that it is. And I’m inclined to believe him, because I — I let him know that I will not any more lies. I just — I wish he would have come to me with this in the first place.

Nikki: Oh, my darling, I feel so awful for you. I know how much you were looking forward to this week and everything. What can we do? Listen… if you want to cancel the wedding, I will contact the planner, and she will cancel it. She will alert all of the guests — hopefully, before they travel. And then you don’t have to put yourself through that.

Ashland: I don’t know if i can take anymore bad news.

Victor: Let’s have a seat. I got to tell you, that billy boy abbott is trying to start more trouble by digging into your past.

Ashland: Well, I knew that already.

Victor: One thing I need to warn you about. He may seem like an idiot at times — and he is — but he’s wily and tenacious. I’ve having my son adam watch him.

Ashland: Well, victor, I’m — I appreciate that, but I’m really not worried anymore. I’ve told victoria everything. Nobody has any leverage to hold over my head. Granted, I don’t want the story to go public. But you took care of gaines, right?

Victor: That’s the problem. Gaines has slipped off my radar.

Ashland: What? You don’t know where he is?

Victor: Don’t you worry about a thing. We’ll find him. Okay? I will allow no one or nothing to ruin my daughter’s big day.

Victoria: All that matters right now is protecting newman/locke. We can’t let the family business that we have all worked so hard for to be decimated by a scandal or the merger — this merger that is so important to our future.

Nikki: Merger or marriage? Because you seem to be mixing the two.

Victoria: Mother, I have looked at this from every angle. I can’t do anything that is gonna raise suspicions and cause some sort of an investigation into ashland or locke communications group.

Nikki: I understand that you are talking like a C.E.O. Right now, but I am speaking to you as your mother. What about your emotions?

Victoria: I cannot think about that right now. I need to focus. This wedding has to happen. It’s got to happen, mom.

[ Duffel bag zips ]

Billy: Well, that was quite the tale. Thank you for filling me in on ashland locke’s humble beginnings.

Gaines: Well, I love telling a good story, but I swear, all of that one is true.

Billy: Well, I expected something devious, but the audacity of a young man to forge a letter that will change camilla rhodes’ will, leaving her entire fortune to him, it’s almost impressive.

Gaines: Yeah, she wasn’t gonna leave him a cent. Ashland was desperate. I suppose that will be interesting to your readers if it’s worth all that to him.

Billy: That right there is not for clickbait. That’s to protect victoria from making a huge mistake, and every single dollar came from me personally. So I’m not letting you walk out of here until I have proof that the story you just told me is true.

Gaines: This should do the trick.

Billy: What is that?

Gaines: It’s a copy of the letter that she originally wrote to locke — the real one, not the one he and my father forged. It’s everything anyone needs to destroy ashland locke. We do it every night.

Gaines: Hold on, cowboy.

Billy: Jesse, we have a deal.

Gaines: Sure. This is a copy of the original. I’m not an idiot. And you don’t get anything unless I am guaranteed protection from victor.

Billy: There is a bag of cash sitting in front of you. And I told you that I will show you the exit plan to make sure that victor is off your back.

Gaines: I just need to know he won’t come after me.

Billy: And don’t kid yourself. He’s gonna come after you. But I will protect you.

[ Envelope taps tabletop ] Okay, you’re not gonna give me the letter, you read it to me right now.

Gaines: Alright.

[ Sighs ] “Dear ashland, you know I care deeply for you. You’re like a son I never had. Your drive and ambition have no limits. You have already overcome so much, and that struggle has been character-building” — yeah, certainly built him into a character, alright — a money-hungry tyrant — “which is why I’m not leaving you any inheritance. I feel it is in your best interests to make it on your own. Farewell, dear ashland. Go forth and prosper. I know you will. — Camilla.”

[ Paper rustling ]

Billy: A lot to digest in there. There’s one thing missing, though.

Gaines: What?

Billy: You said ashland and your father forged her deathbed letter, used as a codicil to change the will. Where’s your proof of that?

Chloe: Okay, well, I can follow up with some of my contacts in the morning. And if they haven’t heard anything about victoria’s wedding, I will just take a page out of your book, throw your name around, and plant a story of my own.

Sally: And if anyone wants you to go on record, deny it. It’ll intrigue them even more.

Chloe: I just really hope this doesn’t backfire.

Sally: This is everything we’ve ever wanted. Your big-picture plan was not just to be a platform for fashion news but a fashion powerhouse, complete with our own designs. So, here we go.

Chloe: [ Chuckles ] Okay. [ Chuckles ] You should really get ready soon. You have to meet adam.

Sally: Mm, it’s a private jet. They’ll wait.

Chloe: [ Chuckles ] I’m gonna go to the airport with you. I want to get one last glimpse of the wedding dress that is going to change our lives.

Nikki: You know who you sound like when you talk like that? Your father.

Victoria: [ Gasps ] My thinking on this is correct. There’s no deviation, no red flags that anyone from the outside can latch onto. We have to keep this contained.

Nikki: Darling, that might be smart for business, but not for you. I know how seriously you take your vows. Now, is this wedding just for show? Are you forcing yourself into a marriage that just shouldn’t happen?

Victoria: I am not forcing myself to do anything.

Nikki: Well, how do you know you’re not gonna be playing right into ashland’s hands?

Victoria: Would you stop it? I know what I’m doing. Ashland is smart enough to not try to keep anything else from me.

Nikki: And after all of this, you really think that the two of you could have a happy marriage?

Victoria: Look, I’ll handle it, alright? My one concern right now is billy.

Nikki: What about him?

Victoria: He seems very determined to derail the ceremony. He’s been leaving me messages, telling me that I’m making a mistake. He says that he has information that he thinks that i should know.

Nikki: Maybe he does.

Victoria: No, he doesn’T. Ashland has told me everything. Nothing that billy is gonna say to me is gonna be news to me. He cannot sway my decision about going through with this wedding. But he can ruin our plans if he finds out the truth and decides that he wants to expose this story to the world.

Gaines: This letter is all the evidence you need. Locke thinks so. He’s been paying me to keep it secret for years.

Billy: How did you get that?

Gaines: From my father’s dossier before he destroyed the evidence of the forgery.

Billy: And when was that?

Gaines: A long time ago.

Billy: And nobody else knew what they were up to?

Gaines: [ Sighs ] No.

Billy: A clerk, a secretary, no one?

Gaines: I sincerely doubt it. My father did all of this on his own. Camilla had no family. There was nobody interested in the will, and nobody to contest it when they filed the codicil.

Billy: What did she plan to do with everything, just bury it alongside her?

Gaines: Well, she had some charities set up, but they had no idea of her plans to bequeath them anything.

Billy: What charities? In a way, locke is stealing from them.

Gaines: She was eccentric. Exotic stuff — homes for wayward cats, exotic plants, things like that.

Billy: Oh, so, he got pissed off for being passed over by felines and flowers?

Gaines: No. Locke is a bastard and a master manipulator. He convinced my father that he had been wronged by camilla. And so they concocted this plan to create this false document so that he could set things right in his mind.

Billy: You seem to have a lot of animosity towards ashland.

Gaines: You’re damn right, I do. I told you, this is personal.

Billy: Yeah, you did. But you haven’t told me why yet. If you’re on medicare, remember,

Gaines: I spent my whole life jumping through hoops, trying to impress my father. He was a workaholic. It wasn’t easy getting his attention. And harder still to impress him. But when this kid showed up with camilla, he took to him right away, singing his praises. “Oh, that ashland is a real go-getter. It made me sick.

Billy: I understand that. So you wanted to do something about it.

Gaines: When ashland inherited all that money, I knew something was wrong. So I decided to do some digging, and I found, under lock and key, my father’s file on camilla rhodes. And there was the original will and the authentic letter explaining to him why he wasn’t gonna receive any inheritance. I made a snap decision. And I took the letter. Shortly thereafter, all the files were destroyed.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Good timing.

Gaines: I got lucky. And I told my father about it, he was angry. More ashamed than anything. He was adamant that I keep it to myself, because if the story got out, it would destroy him. So I kept it a secret all these years… till he died. I kept reading stories about ashland. I got angrier and angrier. I don’t know, maybe it was, uh, delayed grief for the father i had had stolen from me. Ashland needs to pay.

Billy: But he has been.

Gaines: That money that he’s given me means nothing to him. He built his life and his business on lies, and he pulled my father into that deceit.

Billy: But, jesse, it doesn’t sound like your father was blackmailed in any way. He seemed like a willing participant.

Gaines: My dad was a good man. He played by the rules his entire life until locke came along. He manipulated. Yeah, sure, he got some financial gain. The forged codicil gave him out a payment, locke offered him a lucrative position, so it seemed like a victimless crime. But that crime, it weighed on him, and I am certain that’s what drove him to an early grave. So, yeah. Yeah, it’s personal.

Billy: I don’t know if you’ve heard, but ashland locke could, potentially, be heading to a premature demise himself.

Gaines: Yeah. I know. I almost felt bad for him.

Billy: Almost?

Gaines: Made him seem human. But when I came here to get my final payoff, he was so dismissive and condescending.

Billy: You can’t blame a guy for being a little rude to the person that’s blackmailing him.

Gaines: Ashland locke is a fraud and a master manipulator. Camilla rhodes was right about one thing — he is a survivor. He’ll ruin people to save himself. That’s why I came back here, why I risked crossing victor newman to give you what you need to take locke down. I want my revenge. I want to blow up locke’s life while he is still alive to suffer.

Victor: How are you holding up? I know firsthand how difficult it is when the past catches up with you. It’s not affecting your health, is it?

Ashland: Not at all. I-I-I’m fine. [ Sighs ] The only thing weighing on me is the distress this is causing victoria. I hate that all of this is bringing her pain after she has brought me so much joy. And, hell, she’s given me a reason to live.

Victor: Well, we’ve got to stop the trouble that both billy boy abbott and gaines are causing.

Ashland: Well, that may be, but I’m the one to blame here, victor. The choices that I made in the past came back to haunt me. And even if it was decades ago, and I don’t see myself any longer as the man who made those choices, there it is.

Victor: Well, I respect you for taking responsibility. And I respect you for coming clean with my daughter about your past. That could not have been easy.

Ashland: I just hope it doesn’t mean I will lose victoria.

Nikki: I guess this wedding is going to happen. I hope you’ve changed your mind about letting your brother attend, because abby decided to stay home with the baby, and it would be nice to have some family for support.

Victoria: Well, adam will be there, won’t he?

Nikki: [ Laughing ] Oh, my god, are you hearing yourself? You can’t let him be your only sibling at the wedding. Nicholas was very upset that you rescinded his invitation.

Victoria: I guess he should have thought of that before he dug up dirt on my fiancé.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] I really think you are lashing out at the wrong people. Shouldn’t you be upset with the man who kept secrets from you?

Victoria: Oh, mother, how many secrets has dad kept from you over the years — things that have only come to light because he had no choice and he had to come clean about it?

Nikki: Far too many, and I’m trying to spare you that kind of pain.

Victoria: Look, mom, my point is, is that no marriage is perfect. I have looked at this closely, mother.

[ Sighs ] It’s not like ashland committed some crime against me and my family. What he did happened 40 years ago. There’s no need for us to relive it. It can just end here. And I should have been able to trust nicholas.

Nikki: You can.

Victoria: No, I can’T. He betrayed my confidence. He should have stood by my side, which is exactly what I would have done if the roles were reversed. What nicholas did — it hurt me more than anything.

Nikki: Alright, alright.

[ Sighs ] I don’t want to argue with you. You don’t want to listen to what I have to say anyway. Just answer me this. What do you feel in your heart about ashland?

Victoria: I don’t know.

Adam: You know I love you, right? That’s right. I’m your dad, so I can say it no matter how old you get. I love you, connor newman. How do you like that?

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, I, uh — I’ll bring you back something from italy, okay? Alright? Love you. Good night.

Sally: How’s your son?

Adam: He is more excited about me going to italy than I am. Shouldn’t you be packing for our trip?

Sally: I needed a coffee. What’s your excuse?

Adam: Tying up a loose end before we, uh, leave.

P.I.: I have an update on jesse gaines.

[ Sighs ]

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Adam: So, you haven’t found gaines, but you think billy has?

P.I.: Security footage caught gaines entering abbott’s apartment building tonight.

Adam: Is billy there?

P.I.: Yes, and they’re still inside, both of them. Want me to stay close?

Adam: No. Um, I’ll take it from here. Good work.

P.I.: You got it.

Sally: What’s with all the mysterious cloak-and-dagger business?

Adam: I, um — I have to take care of something. I’ll meet you at the airport. Just don’t be late for wheels-up.

Sally: Sounds exciting and exotic. If you’re trying to impress me, I have been on private jets before.

Adam: I’m not trying to impress you or anyone. I just want a comfortable, peaceful trip to italy, okay? You remember that I’m taking you as a friendly favor, not a date, right?

Sally: But can’t it at least be the start of a beautiful friendship?

Adam: No.

Sally: Ow. Okay. Need to lighten up. I was teasing you. I know what this trip is about.

Adam: You just can’t help yourself, can you?

Billy: How many other people know about this scam with camilla’s will?

Gaines: As far as I know, you, me, locke, and victor.

Billy: Why would victor pay you? What benefit does he get by squashing the story? I mean, he can’t possibly condone victoria’s wedding after hearing this news, so…

Gaines: Maybe victor newman doesn’t see what locke did as a crime. I’m sure he’s done similar things on his way to the top. The real question is, why are you out to get ashland?

Billy: Victoria is the mother of my children. And she’s a good person. And I’ve caused her enough pain. I don’t want to see her suffer anymore.

Gaines: I don’t buy that you’re being noble.

Billy: I don’t care. You don’t need to understand anything. The only person that needs to know the truth is victoria. And she can make whatever decision she wants.

[ Sighs ] But right now, she is not taking my calls. So I’m going to tuscany early. And you’re coming with me because she is not gonna believe me unless I give her the proof from the horse’s mouth.

Victor: So, how does it look out there?

Nikki: Gorgeous.

Victor: Yeah?

Nikki: An idyllic spot.

Victoria: I think it’s the perfect backdrop for us to exchange our vows.

Ashland: What does that mean?

Victoria: Well, you know, we have a lot to do if we’re gonna pull off the wedding of the year.

Victor: I’m delighted to hear that.

Ashland: Maybe we should take a walk around the grounds.

Nikki: Before you do that, could you take us to our room? The sooner we get settled, the sooner we can all pitch in and help.

Victoria: Sure. Of course I will.

Nikki: Thank you. Still fresh

Chloe: Hi. What’s going on here?

Adam: Uh, I just got a message from the editor of a fashion magazine. Trust me, you’ve heard of her. Um, she just found out that sally is going to tuscany, and newman media is promising to give a scoop, and she wants confirmation.

Sally: Well, I can confirm that I am going there for the wedding, and when victoria wears my dress that I made for her —

Adam: Wait, wait, wait, the whole reason that I’m going to this wedding is to show that I’m committed to playing a role in my family. This doesn’t help. Makes it look like it’s a self-serving business trip, sally.

Chloe: It wasn’t sally. It was me. I leaked the story. I got excited, I told a friend, and you know how fast gossip travels.

Adam: See, that — that was reckless.

Chloe: I — I’m sorry. But it was scoop about fashion, not about dirt.

Adam: But the wedding dress?

Chloe: Sally’s creation.

Sally: Hello.

Adam: What if victoria doesn’t wear the gown?

Sally: She’s gonna love it.

Adam: Look, I’m — I’m gonna give you a ride over there. That’s it. Not gonna get you an audience with victoria. She got enough on her plate, and I’m not exactly her favorite person.

Sally: I know it seems like I’m flirting with disaster here, but I’m not. Okay, I’m just putting myself in the right place at the right time, with your help. So, thank you, both of you, for having faith in me.

Adam: Okay, I have to go. Alright? We’ll discuss it later. But, please, please, no more leaks or gossip. I don’t want anything to take attention away from victoria’s big day.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

[ Door opens ]

Victoria: So, it looks like your bags beat you here.

Victor: I got to tell you, the staff is absolutely first-class.

Victoria: Do you want to rest, and then we can meet for lunch? Nate and elena will be flying in later.

Nikki: Oh, well, maybe they could join us. That would be nice.

Victor: Sweetheart, would you mind giving me some time alone with victoria?

Nikki: Yes, of course. I will make arrangements for lunch?

Victor: Si, my love. So, I understand that ashland told you everything.

Victoria: Yes, he did.

Victor: [ Sighs ] How do you feel about it?

Victoria: Well, obviously, it was a lot to take in.

[ Sighs ] And not just the money from camilla, but I’m assuming that nick told you how he took the name ashland locke.

Victor: Yeah.

Victoria: [ Sighs ]

Victor: I’ve been filled in. And — and never mind nicholas. He’s alright.

Victoria: He had no right to dig up that information himself.

Victor: Sweetheart, forgive him for that. He did that to protect you. I wish you hadn’t rescinded his invitation. I was looking forward to having nicholas and adam and you all together at the same wonderful event.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Daddy, I cannot let this go so easily. He’s gonna have to earn my forgiveness.

Chloe: You know, I was worried there. I thought that adam was gonna pull the plug on you being his plus-one.

Sally: Thank you.

Chloe: For what?

Sally: Well, for stepping in and taking the blame for the leak. But I have to ask. Why did you cover for me?

Chloe: Well, I would rather him be mad at me than at you. I’m used to it.

Sally: Well, I owe you.

Chloe: Yeah, you do. And don’t worry, I will accept it, but for right now, I just need you to guard this dress with your life on this trip.

Sally: Well, good thing we’re going on a private jet. Could you imagine me trying to shove that thing into an overhead bin of a commercial flight?

Chloe: No, it would have been a disaster.

Sally: I had to use the most delicate, luxurious material to make sure it was worthy of a newman bride.

Chloe: Well, that’s why I’m relieved that you are getting newman-level transportation, ’cause, normally, I would be opposed to someone traveling and spending hours in an enclosed space with adam.

Sally: All the stars are aligning. I’m going to spend the entire trip visualizing victoria strutting down the aisle wearing my design, because I believe in the power of positive thinking.

Chloe: I do love your confidence, but you really should listen to adam, because there is a chance that you’re going to get there and victoria is not going to give you the time of day, and then it will just be a wasted trip.

Sally: I understand.

Chloe: Okay, and I — I know I’ve said this to you before, but please just — please just go easy on — on the flirting. You know, I mean, I just know what adam is like when he has that single-minded look in his eye. You really don’t want to cross him.

Sally: Fine. But I think you have forgotten your can-do spirit, ’cause this is what it looks like when you want something so badly that you will it into existence. Haven’t you ever done that before?

Chloe: I can’t believe I’ve hitched my wagon to someone nuttier than me.

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Chloe: Okay. Have a great trip. I wish you luck. And please just get victoria to say “yes to the dress.” I’m a ganiac, ganiac, check my drawers Some things are good to know.

Victoria: Thank you for what you’ve done, for helping to keep the camilla rhodes story quiet. And I — I really, really appreciate your help in protecting newman/locke from any backlash, daddy.

Victor: That is not why i paid off gaines.

Victoria: Well, why did you do it?

Victor: Because I’ve never seen my daughter as happy as you are now with ashland. I know that’s good for the company, but mostly it is good for you. I’m happy for you. And that’s more important than anything.

Victoria: Don’t worry. I have every intention of proceeding with the weeding.

Nikki: I’m not gonna lie to you. After everything I have learned of recently, I have very serious doubts that victoria should go ahead with this wedding.

[ Sighs ] She thinks that it’s the right thing to do, for practical reasons, but she doesn’t want to admit how much she’s hurting. And I predicted all along that getting involved with you would bring her nothing but heartache, and that has proven to be true. Your health, these secrets from your past — all very unfortunate omens.

Ashland: I’m not superstitious.

Nikki: Victoria may think it’s the right thing to do to go ahead with this wedding, but i am appealing to you, ashland.

Ashland: Are you asking me to call things off?

Nikki: Yes. If you truly care about her, give her that gift. Relieve her of this burden.

[ Knock on door ]

Billy: Who is it?

Adam: It’s adam.

Billy: Coming.

[ Doorknob turning ]

[ Sighs ] To what do I owe this unpleasant surprise?

Adam: I’m looking for gaines.

Billy: Who?

Adam: Jesse gaines. Are you really gonna pretend like you don’t know who he is, billy?

Billy: I’m gonna do anything I have to, to get you the hell out of here so I can go pack for tuscany and get a little bit of rest.

Adam: Relax, billy. You can sleep in tomorrow, because you’re not going to tuscany. You’re not getting anywhere near victoria’s wedding.

Elena: [ Chuckles ] I held off on ordering the pasta since we are about to go to Italy and I expect to have the best pasta I have ever tasted in my life.

Nate: Hmm. What is pasta made out of, flour and water? You think they have magical ingredients out there.

Elena: I think everything about that place is gonna be magical.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] Far be it from me to argue with that logic.

Elena: Oh, let me live in my fantasy. I’ve never been to Italy, and i am so excited.

Sally: We are going to need a big car to pick us up from the airport in Tuscany because i have a lot of luggage.

Adam: Really? Why? It’s not like we’re going for that long.

Sally: Well, I’m taking Victoria’s wedding dress and all the paraphernalia that goes along with it, like my sewing machine and supplies, a portable steamer, shoes, accessories.

Adam: Okay, okay, I’ll reserve a limo. Or maybe two.

Sally: That will work.

Adam: I know that you put a lot of work into transporting the dress, but do you have any idea how you’re actually gonna get it in front of her?

Sally: I am still working on that, but, hey, I got the first 5,000 miles planned out, so that last little stretch should be a piece of cake, right?

Adam: The eternal optimist.

Sally: Well, I’m sure I’ll come up with a strategy once i have a chance to scope out the villa.

Adam: Oh, dining alone, i see. What happened, Lily finally give you the boot?

Billy: Not that it’s any of your business, but Lily is visiting her daughter, so apparently I’m not as sad and lonely as you.

Adam: Well, I can’t blame her for having to get away. She probably needed a break from being around such an insufferable bore.

Billy: You’ll be happy to know that she’ll be meeting me in Tuscany for the big wedding. It’s unfortunate you won’t have a date for the big shindig. Of course, you’d have to be invited by Victoria in the first place.

Adam: Well, I hate to burst your bubble, but I actually will be at the wedding. Despite all odds, Victoria decided to roll the dice and add me to the guest list. So, I look forward to toasting to her good fortune.

Adam: Victoria already left, huh? Then why are you hinting that you have some insider info about pre-wedding jitters? She didn’t go all the way there not to get married, Billy. What’s this, is this just more wishful thinking?

Elena: Thanks.

Nate: Grazie.

Elena: [ Chuckles ] I held off on ordering the pasta since we are about to go to italy, and I expect to have the best pasta I have ever tasted in my life.

Nate: Hmm. What is pasta made out of, flour and water? You think they have magical ingredients out there.

Elena: I think everything about that place is gonna be magical.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] Far be it from me to argue with that logic.

Elena: Oh, let me live in my fantasy. I’ve never been to italy, and i am so excited.

Billy: Oh, italy, you are going to have a blast.

Elena: Hey, you.

Billy: Hi. And actually, speaking of this double date we’ve been trying to organize, we should do it in italy. Tuscany’s perfect. Some of the best restaurants in the world there are blocks away from the palazzo.

Elena: Well, when are you and lily leaving? Does it make sense for us just to go together?

Billy: I don’t know, maybe. What’s your plan?

Nate: Well, ashland’s sending over his jet from tuscany so we can fly out tonight.

Billy: Yeah, that’s a bummer. Lily is still visiting her daughter, and we got kids’ schedules to figure out, and on top of that, ashland would probably re-route us to antarctica if he knew I was on that plane.

Nate: Mm, yeah, lily mentioned there’s some tension between you guys.

Billy: Well, you know me, i can be a little blunt for my own good. And I’ve told both victoria and ashland that I feel like they’re rushing into things.

Elena: Well, I mean, they definitely have, but I’m sure you can understand why.

Billy: Sure, I get it. He’s on borrowed time. I still feel like there are other considerations that should take precedence.

Nate: Well, since you’re going to the wedding, I take it that you accepted that it’s happening.

Billy: I wouldn’t go that far. I still feel like there’s time for victoria to change her mind, and I’m hoping she does.

Sally: Ready for our trip?

Adam: Hey. What’s up?

Sally: We are going to need a big car to pick us up from the airport in tuscany because i have a lot of luggage.

Adam: Really? Why? It’s not like we’re going for that long.

Sally: Well, I’m taking victoria’s wedding dress and all the paraphernalia that goes along with it, like my sewing machine and supplies, a portable steamer, shoes, accessories.

Billy: Okay, okay, I’ll reserve a limo. Or maybe two.

Sally: That will work.

Adam: I know that you put a lot of work into transporting the dress, but do you have any idea how you’re actually gonna get it in front of her?

Sally: I am still working on that, but, hey, I got the first 5,000 miles planned out, so that last little stretch should be a piece of cake, right?

Adam: The eternal optimist.

Sally: Well, I’m sure I’ll come up with a strategy once i have a chance to scope out the villa.

Adam: Palazzo.

Sally: Okay. Is that not the same thing?

Adam: Well, traditionally, a villa was a country home with gardens as a getaway, whereas the palazzo was the official residence in town. Mm-hmm. But nowadays, you’re right. It’s probably a distinction without much of a difference.

Sally: Well, I’m guessing that the newman family palazzo is gorgeous beyond belief, old, elegant, luxurious.

Adam: I assume so. I’ve never been there myself, actually.

Sally: Well, good, we can explore it together.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Sally, we’re flying over on the same jet. Doesn’t mean we’re together.

Sally: Eh, sounds to me like another distinction without a difference.

Victoria: So do you feel better now that you’ve had something to eat?

Ashland: I’m a little out of practice jetting off to europe. My body clock’s a little messed up, but that wonderful lunch we had has revived me.

Victoria: Good. I hope you’re finally ready to be completely honest with me.

Ashland: It’s time. But I feel compelled to warn you, once I share with you what I’ve done, and if you choose not to expose what I’ve done — and I trust that you won’t — you’ll become complicit, an accessory after the fact, at least in the eye of the public.

Victoria: Does this have to do with an actual crime?

Ashland: It does. Do you still want to know?

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Tell me everything.

Adam: Just so we’re clear, you and I aren’t going to italy as a couple. You’re not my date to this wedding. We won’t be sleeping in the same room, if that’s what you had in mind.

Sally: I was kidding, adam. Geez. Yes, I understand the ground rules, and I am fine with them. I realize that you have a very healthy ego, but you might not be quite as irresistible as you think you are.

Adam: Okay, I don’t know where you got the impression that I think that —

Sally: [ Laughs ]

Adam: Oh, that was very funny.

Sally: Had you going.

Adam: Yeah.

Sally: Yeah.

Adam: You did.

Sally: Doesn’t take much. Anyway, I am super appreciative of you helping me convey my show-stopping masterpiece to the bride, and I promise not to read anything more into it than that. We are travel companions and colleagues, end of story. And I also will make sure that nobody else gets the wrong impression, since I get the feeling that is your biggest concern.

Adam: I would call that my second-biggest concern, other than making sure you don’t get the wrong idea either.

Sally: Mission accomplished.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Adam: Um, there’s something that I need to take care of, so if there’s nothing else…

Sally: Nope. Oh, yes, actually, a plan for later. Are you picking me up or am i meeting you at the airport with all my gear?

Chloe: Hey, guys. What’s this about an airport?

Sally: Chloe, hi. I forget to mention this to you earlier. You ran off too fast. Adam was kind enough to offer me a lift to tuscany.

Adam: Well, I didn’t so much as offer as surrendered to her persistent pleas.

Sally: Yet another distinction without a difference. The point is, I’m going. Isn’t that great?

Chloe: Well, this is interesting news.

Adam: I got to run.

Sally: Text me the logistics, okay?

Adam: Will do.

Chloe: You really need to rethink this.

Elena: I’m not sure how much time you’ve actually gotten to spend with ashland and victoria, but nate and I have become friends with them, and regardless of what you feel about ashland, trust me, he adores her.

Billy: Well, of course he does. What’s not to love? Okay, look, before you go there, let me just be very clear. I have moved on, okay? Lily and I are deliriously happy. I am not pining for my ex, and i hope that victoria is happy as well. And if ashland lived up to the hype, I’d be a fan, too. But certain things have come to light.

Nate: What things?

Billy: Let’s just say I don’t believe he’s the man that he says he is.

Ashland: Well, to understand the choices I made, you have to understand my relationship with camilla rhodes.

Victoria: Your mentor, early on.

Ashland: We met when I first went for my interview. Well, not my interview, it was my friend’s — the original ashland, the real ashland. I was hoping I could bluff my way through it. Ashland was fascinated by news and television and broadcast journalism. He talked about it constantly. Some of it actually sunk in. I did what little research i could, but I was a kid, I was a mess. I’m — I was all alone in the world. I… I had just been in a brutal car accident. I was thrown from the vehicle. I was in shock. I had watched my friend die before my eyes. And now all I had to go on was this idea, this conviction that I wanted to live ashland’s life for him. To somehow make it up to him. Camilla had other candidates for the job that day who were better prepared, better dressed, and more articulate, but no one wanted it more than I did, and she could sense that, and so she gave me a shot. I started off basically as a gofer, and it could have ended there, but she took a liking to me and gave me opportunities and took me under her wing.

Victoria: You were just a boy without a family. You didn’t even have a friend in the world. That must have meant a lot to you.

Ashland: Yeah, it meant everything. Believe me. And I thought it did to her, as well. She had no family, she had no kids. Her husband had died. She was all alone in the world, more or less. Over time, I, you know, worked hard and earned her trust, and basically she treated me like the son that she never had. And from that trust and faith in me, she helped me map out a future for myself in the media realm that I could never have manifested on my own in any way. And then it all went to hell.

 

Billy: Look, I understand you see ashland in a different light, and that’s fine. He’s a charismatic guy. I’m sure he’s fun to be around.

Nate: No, there’s more to our friendship than that. I admire the man tremendously. I mean, he’s battling a potentially fatal illness, undergoing intensive treatment, and he’s handling the whole ordeal with so much grace. That says a lot about his character.

Billy: No doubt.

Elena: Frankly, if I were you, I would do what I could to support ashland and victoria instead of trying to hold him accountable for something he may have done ages ago.

Nate: Look, billy, you have a past of your own, and lily has chosen to believe you’ve learned and grown from that. She accepts you for the man you are today.

Billy: No, you’re right. Lily knows all about my past. We’ve known each other forever, and I have been open and honest with her about everything. But I cannot say the same thing about ashland. But it doesn’t matter because if looking out for my children and their mother makes me a hypocrite, then I am fine with that. But I am not about to turn a blind eye and ignore the red flags.

Elena: What does that mean, exactly? Do you intend to interfere with the wedding?

Billy: No, victoria’s very capable of of making her own decisions. I just want to make sure that she knows all the facts.

Nate: The “facts” — according to whom?

[ Cellphone chimes ] Billy.

Billy: I’m sorry. Something very important has come up that I need to deal with. I’ll see you in italy.

Nate: I don’t like the sound of that.

Sally: It doesn’t matter how I get to italy or with whom. The important thing is that i haven’t missed my opportunity to present my wedding dress to victoria. And once she sees what I created just for her, in my heart, i know that’ll be it. She’ll find it irresistible.

Chloe: I still think it’s an incredible long shot.

Sally: Yes, I know. You keep saying that, but I’ve put so much time and energy into this. I have to at least try.

Chloe: Fine. But with adam?

Sally: He’s the bride’s brother, has an actual invite, and I need a way to get past the security that’s bound to be there.

Chloe: Okay, I get it, I get it, but it doesn’t mean I like it.

Sally: Adam and I just clarified. We are not going over there as a couple. This is not some epic date. He is going for family, and I am going for the dress. Our interests just happen to coincide. This is not about romance.

Chloe: Right. A lavish wedding in a magnificent italian palazzo — who could even think about romance in a setting like that?

Sally: You worry too much.

Ashland: There’s no excuse for what I did, the choices i made. But at least I want to try and explain. You see, I was just…a little boy at the time. I was a kid, as you said. And camilla had been my entire support system in so many ways. She’d taken care of me and protected me in ways that my mother wouldn’t or couldn’t do, and I was so grateful for that. When she passed away, it was a terrible loss. It hit me almost as hard as when ashland died. She had always talked to me about, you know, how much she appreciated and supported me and admired me, and I just assumed that there would be some provision for me in her will.

Victoria: There wasn’t?

Ashland: Her lawyer was the senior jesse gaines, and he had told me that her will stipulated that her estate were to go to a charity. And these weren’t reputable institutions… or known foundations. Frivolous little things that she had gotten a kick out of when she was alivE. A cat sanctuary, for god’s sake. It just felt like, to me, that she had taken the trust and faith that I had in her and made a mockery of it. It was a — it was a big joke. I know it sounds like that I’m a spoiled little brat and i somehow was entitled to receive this — her entire estate, but… I just need you to understand —

Victoria: Why did she cut you out of her will? Was she upset with you or something?

Ashland: No, no, it wasn’t that. Jesse had told me that he had read a letter that she wrote stipulating that she didn’t think that I needed to get by on any inheritance in order to be successful, that I could make it on my own, that she had faith in me, and she was right. I could. But I was immature and angry and confused about the whole thing, and jesse, he was angry on my behalf, as well.

Victoria: Why would it matter to him?

Ashland: Well, he had taken a liking to me. When camilla introduced us, she encouraged him to take on more of a paternal role in my life. And it was incomprehensible to him that she would scatter this vast estate to this motley collection of beneficiaries. He fed my resentment. And he said that he had tried to talk camilla out of her plan, but that she wouldn’t be moved. So after stewing over the injustice for a while, jesse and I came to realize that we could fix it. A lot of people think dealing with copd

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Elena: If the budget’s there, I’d like to hire a full-time nurse, someone paid. That way, the clinic is never understaffed in case we’re low on volunteers.

Nate: Mm, great idea. I’ll talk to devon and see where things stand.

Adam: Hey, guys, I’m so sorry to interrupt. Have you seen billy? I was supposed to meet him here. I was a little late.

Elena: He was here a few minutes ago.

Nate: You just missed him.

Adam: [ Exhales sharply ] Must have thought I flaked on him. Sure now he’s mad.

Elena: Uh, no. Nate and I both spoke to him, and he didn’t seem angry and he also didn’t mention you. He just got a text message and he rushed out.

Nate: Yeah, we just assumed there was some breaking news somewhere.

Adam: Huh. Maybe so.

Ashland: So jesse forged a new letter that was supposedly written by camilla the night before she died, with instructions to revise the will, and it effectively became a codicil to the original will, overriding its provisions.

Victoria: How much did “camilla” leave you in this letter?

Ashland: All of her estate. We were hurt and angry and did a terrible thing. Had camilla known what we had done, she would have been outraged.

Victoria: So you used her money to buy the tv stations?

Ashland: Which became the foundation for my media empire.

Victoria: All built on a lie and stolen funds.

Ashland: Camilla deserved so much better after all that she had done for me. And when I had grown up and realized what I had done, it was just too late to change it and there was no point in exposing jesse’s complicity.

Victoria: I don’t understand. Why would he take such an enormous risk? What was in it for him?

Ashland: Well, it wasn’t as big of a risk as you might think. There was no one to challenge it. Camilla had no other heirs. Making me the beneficiary of her estate seemed to be a logical choice. I mean, it was generous, but not suspicious. Jesse had just really wanted my service and commitment to her and her company to be financially rewarded.

Victoria: And his son, too. Gaines junior. He works for you, doesn’t he? Is he in on this?

Ashland: Absolutely not. Junior is an idiot, an absolutely worthless human being. Even his father knew that, and there was no way that he was gonna take him into his confidence.

Victoria: Well, he must have known something about it. You wouldn’t have just put an idiot on your payroll. Why did he suddenly show up in genoa city? Why is he harassing you?

Ashland: Well, gaines senior had made a foolish mistake. He did not dispose of the note that camilla wrote, stipulating that I was to receive no inheritance, and…junior found out about that and…he decided to use it for future leverage.

Victoria: Of course he did.

Ashland: So after his father died, there was no legal or ethical threat, and so he decided to blackmail me. And he’s been doing it for years. And when he found out that I was dying, he panicked and realized, “whoa, this is the end of the gravy train.” And he — he’s really not bright enough to create any other source of an income or a living, so he demanded that I make one last lump sum payment.

Victoria: Let me guess. That lump sum of money that you went to your banker for wasn’t for a surprise wedding present. It was to pay off jesse.

Ashland: I’m ashamed that i lied to you and that I did so easily. That scared little boy that became a ruthless cutthroat. After living that way for a lifetime, it’s become second nature. And I so desperately wanted to shield you from the ugliness of all this.

Victoria: So where do things stand with gaines now? You paid him off? Is he gone?

Ashland: Yes and no. Gaines is gone, but I’m not the one who paid him off. Your father beat me to it.

Marty: Welcome home.

Billy: Marty. You found the key okay? Any trouble getting in?

Marty: Nope, none.

Billy: Good. Well, to say that I was blown away by the text message you sent would be an understatement. The fact that you and your team were able to find gaines and bring him back to genoa city so quickly is a good thing. Where is he?

Marty: Mr. Gaines, would you join us, please?

Billy: Jesse. It’s good to see you again.

Do I need to pretreat my

laundry?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Adam: I’m on the chanccomm site. I don’t see any recent blockbusters. So whatever billy was working on, it must be still in progress.

Nate: Can I ask — why were you meeting with him in the first place? I thought you two weren’t on the best of terms.

Adam: That’s the reason. My sister’s wedding in italy is coming up, so I wanted to negotiate a temporary truce in in the sake of family unity.

Elena: Wait. Are you going?

Adam: [ Chuckling ] Yeah. Yeah, it surprised me, too. But I’m happy to accept the invite. Nick and I are in a much better place after faith’s transplant, and I want to improve my relationship with victoria, too. Billy and I — we will never see eye to eye on much, but I was hoping we could at least agree to be happy for victoria and ashland and make a pact not to disrupt the wedding. What? What’d I say?

Nate: I wouldn’t be so sure you’re on the same page about that.

Adam: Really? Why is that?

Elena: Ask billy. He’s very open about his feelings when it comes to the wedding.

Adam: Fair enough.

Elena: Fyi — we will be in tuscany, as well. Nate is actually ashland’s best man.

Adam: You are? That is terrific.

Nate: I was pleased to be asked.

Adam: Oh. Well, I look forward to seeing you both there.

Nate: Alright. Well, catch you later.

Adam: Catch you later.

Elena: See you soon. Hmm. Wow. I’m really glad that adam is being supportive of his sister. I wouldn’t have expected that.

Nate: He’s probably trying to score points with victor.

Elena: True.

Nate: Whatever the reason is, it’s a good thing. Adam can be trouble. And ashland and victoria have enough to deal with.

[ Lock engages ]

Billy: Well, jesse, where did we leave off? Oh, yes. I remember. You promised to give me the scoop on how ashland locke started in business. And then you up and vanished.

Gaines: What can I say? I got a better offer.

Billy: From victor newman, I am to assume? How much did he pay you?

Gaines: More than you were offering before and less than I’m expecting you to offer now.

Billy: Okay. So you want to re-open negotiations.

Gaines: Hold on a second. We need to settle something else first.

Billy: Sure. What is it?

Gaines: Well, newman won’t be happy that I gave his people the slip. He’s gonna be even more furious if I go back on my word and tell you what I know about locke. So I need you to guarantee me protection from him, or this conversation ends right now.

Victoria: Are you saying that you went to my father for help in dealing with gaines?

Ashland: No, of course not.

Victoria: Well, then how did this happen?

Ashland: I-I don’t know how victor figured it out, but when I showed up to the grand phoenix with cash to pay off gaines, gaines was gone and victor was there. He said he’d handled it, and he didn’t want me to think about it any further.

Victoria: You must have been in shock over this.

Ashland: To put it mildly.

Victoria: I don’t understand. Why would my father intervene?

Ashland: Well, he made it clear that it wasn’t for my sake.

[ Chuckles ] He loves you so much and he just sees how happy you are and he wants you to stay that way. He said, “consider it a wedding gift.”

Victoria: There has to be something more.

Ashland: Well, nothing is ever simple when it comes to victor newman. And I guess with the newman/locke merger, he was worried about its public image.

Victoria: You’re probably right.

Ashland: I would imagine with victor that he’d take some delight in knowing that he’s got some leverage over me. But aside from that, I take the man at his word. He said he understood what i had gone through, as he had made some difficult choices when he was young that he had regretted, and that he didn’t want foolish things that I had done in my youth to get in the way of our future together.

Victoria: Well, it sounds like you and my father have come to quite an understandinG.

Ashland: Well, still, as much as I appreciate what victor has done, the threat hasn’t been eliminated. Far from it. I brought in ensure max protein, with thirty grams of protein.

Billy: I’m confident I can protect you from victor. I got you here safely, didn’t I?

Gaines: I’m gonna need more than just your word. I want to sign off on every detail of whatever plan your security team comes up with for me.

Billy: I’m sure we can find a way to put your mind at ease. I do have one question, though. If you are concerned about victor’s reaction, why are you here in the first place?

Gaines: You’re complaining?

Billy: No, not at all. It just feels like there’s more to this than money.

Gaines: Oh. Well, what is your theory?

Billy: Well, if it was just money, you could go back to victor and ask for more — or ashland. We both know they have deeper pockets than I do. Of course, they’re gonna keep this story quiet, and that doesn’t sit well with you. You want the truth to see the light of day, every shady thing that ashland did to start his career. My question is — why? What’s your beef with him?

Gaines: Alright. I admit it. It is personal. And you will find out why after we make our deal, not before.

Elena: Mmm, that was amazing.

Nate: Any room for dessert?

Elena: Actually, I don’t think we have time. I need to finish packing.

Nate: Okay. Didn’t you say you were mostly done with that last night?

Elena: Well, there’s packing, and then there’s finishing packing, which involves me going over my checklists and playing my favorite game of, “what did i forget?” Because what if we decide to go climb the leaning tower of pisa and I don’t have my walking shoes?

Nate: Got it. Because there’s no place in europe where you couldn’t just buy another pair.

Elena: I just want this to go well. This trip is really important to me. And I think it’s going to be a great step forward for us both. And if I haven’t said it before, I am really glad that you decided to give us another chance to get things right.

Nate: I am feeling good about us, too, and I can’t wait to take off from work and spend time together. It wouldn’t even have to be one of the most beautiful countries on earth. It could be fresno, for all i care.

Elena: Fresno?! Yeah, I guess fresno has a lot to offer. I’m pretty sure it’s the raisin capital of the world.

[ Both laugh ] But I think it’s better we stick with the original plan.

Nate: [ Sighs ] If you insist.

[ Both laugh ]

Victoria: Gaines is still a threat? After my father dealt with him? Is — is there some loose end that he didn’t know about?

Ashland: Victor handled this without consulting me, so he didn’t know about the first letter or that he had to retrieve it in order to neutralize gaines. Now gaines can hold that over my head, irrespective of how much money we throw at him, because he despises me and he always has.

Victoria: Why?

Ashland: His father had zero respect for him. He would compare junior to me, unfavorably, to his face.

Victoria: It just sounds like a twisted form of sibling rivalry.

Ashland: Yeah. I suspect that he has been fantasizing about taking me down for quite some time, but only due to my financial largess does he hesitate to go through with it. But now that my days are possibly coming to an end, gaines probably realizes it’s now or never.

Victoria: And if he tries to come after you in any way, you do realize that it’s gonna blow back on my company, don’t you?

Ashland: Our company.

Victoria: Fraud, conspiracy, grand theft. This is gonna be a huge scandal.

Ashland: Yeah —

Victoria: And you’re right, you know. If I don’t come forward right away, I’m — I’m gonna be complicit.

Ashland: I think that we’re protected from any legal repercussions.

Victoria: Are you sure?

Ashland: The statute of limitations has long expired. But if this were to come out, my reputation would be tarnished, as well as locke communications group. And since our companies have merged, newman would also face a fallout.

Victoria: I-I don’t know what to say. This is just — this is a lot to take in. I don’t even know how to begin to address this.

Ashland: If you can, just try to put that aside for a moment. What’s in your heart? Do you think you can still go through with marrying me, even though you know what I did? Need long-lasting freshness?

Sally: Ah! There you are. I’ve been looking for you everywhere.

Adam: Huh. Problem?

Sally: More like an opportunity. I just found these earrings that would go perfect with victoria’s wedding dress, so I was curious if you were looking for suggestions as to what to get her for a wedding gift.

Adam: Uh, I actually already have that covered. My assistant found a personal chef who’s gonna cook them a delicious home-cooked meal for the newlyweds and the kids on a night of their choosing.

Sally: Wow. I love that. It’s like the perfect balance. It’s special and kind of posh, yet considerate and homey. Nicely done.

Adam: I try.

Sally: Well, I’m sure she will appreciate the effort that you’re making. It is quite touching. I’ll be right back.

[ Clears throat ]

Victor: Son, are you on the way to the airport?

Adam: Uh, soon. I have some information that, uh, you’ll want to know.

Victor: What is it?

Adam: I learned billy got a tip of some sort earlier today. Apparently, he’s still focused on putting a stop to the wedding, which leads me to believe that it’s something to do with ashland.

Victor: That’s very disturbing, son. I just learned that jesse gaines slipped through the fingers of my security team. And I have a feeling that billy boy abbott had something to do with it.

Adam: Well, wouldn’t shock me.

Victor: Please stay on it, okay? Got to make sure that this man does not cause any further damage. Is that clear?

Adam: Very clear.

Billy: Please. We have a lot to talk about.

Gaines: We haven’t settled —

Billy: I understand we haven’t worked out the details of our arrangement. But it is clear to me that you want the facts to see the light of day. And I sure as hell want to hear them.

Gaines: Sounds like a good start.

Billy: So, I have deduced that your attorney father and ashland locke cooked up a scheme that launched his career. Gave him the seed money to buy the two stations. Now, I’m guessing that deal was shady at best, possibly outright illegal.

Gaines: You’re on the right track.

Billy: Thank you for the confirmation.

Gaines: And as long as you can guarantee me protection from victor and we settle on the money, I’ll tell you everything you want to know.

Victoria: As ceo of the merged company, it is my responsibility to focus on the business aspect of this first.

[ Sighs ] If this story comes out, it is gonna undermine everything that we’ve accomplished.

Ashland: Victoria —

Victoria: I have spent years trying to make newman strong and resilient. And now I have to worry about a ticking time bomb!

Ashland: Victoria, I still think that there’s a chance that we can keep all this under wraps. But what’s really pressing on me right now is what’s going on between the two of us. I don’t want to pressure you right now to follow through with this wedding. You don’t need to make that choice, not at this moment.

Victoria: Don’t tell me how I should react right now. I shouldn’t have been put in this position in the first place.

Ashland: Of course. I-I never intended, when we first got involved, to put you in this position. I have tried to keep this secret under wraps for 40 years and intended to go to my grave with it.

[ Breathes deeply ] I can’t express how sorry I am that you’re going through this, especially now. But I want you to understand why I did what I did. And is there any chance that we can work through this?

Billy: Thank you.

Adam: Oh, dining alone, i see. What happened, lily finally give you the boot?

Billy: Not that it’s any of your business, but lily is visiting her daughter, so apparently I’m not as sad and lonely as you.

Adam: Well, I can’t blame her for having to get away. She probably needed a break from being around such an insufferable bore.

Billy: You’ll be happy to know that she’ll be meeting me in tuscany for the big wedding. It’s unfortunate you won’t have a date for the big shindig. Of course, you’d have to be invited by victoria in the first place.

Adam: Well, I hate to burst your bubble, but I actually will be at the wedding. Despite all odds, victoria decided to roll the dice and add me to the guest list. So I look forward to toasting to her good fortune.

Billy: You think victoria marrying ashland is good fortune?

Adam: Absolutely, I do. She finally found a man worthy of her.

Victoria: Okay. Remember, this had to be done very quickly, which is why we had the special seamstress flown in and put up in this suite to oversee the rush job. We still have a few minor adjustments.

Chloe: Okay, enough explaining. Just show it to me.

Sally: Okay. Here it is. Ta-da!

Chloe: Oh, my god. I mean, it’s gorgeous. I’ve only seen the photos that lauren showed me of victoria’s current dress, but this — i mean, this beats it on every level, hands down. There’s just no comparison.

Sally: You really mean that?

Chloe: I mean, what else can I say? It is to die for.

Sally: Okay, well, now we just have one problem. How do we get this on the blushing bride?

Alessia: Signora newman and signore locke, welcome to the palazzo.

Victoria: Thank you, alessia. You and your staff have done such a wonderful job preparing for the wedding. I hope our early arrival wasn’t too much trouble for you.

Alessia: Oh, no, no trouble at all. But most of the credit goes to your mother for all of the arrangements.

Ashland: You and nikki did a wonderful job. The palazzo is quite beautiful. As breathtaking as the woman I want to marry.

Rey: Thank you. Oh, what’s that smell? I’m having a honeymoon in miami flashback.

Sharon: It’s the perfume you gave me last night. The gift that keeps on giving.

Rey: So many great memories.

Sharon: The scent of love.

Mariah: Hey, good morning, you two.

Rey: Hey, mariah. It’s good to see you smiling.

Mariah: Well, it is a beautiful day, and I’m feeling a lot better.

Sharon: Good to hear. You mind if I ask where’s this new attitude coming from? What changed?

Mariah: Don’t worry, mom. We’re not pregnant, but having a baby isn’t off the table yet.

Abby: [ Gasps ] Dominic.

[ Sighs ] Hey.

Devon: Hey.

Abby: Hey.

Devon: Is he okay?

Abby: Oh. Well, his breathing sounds good.

Devon: Oh, good.

Abby: Oh. Oh, his temperature feels good, too.

Devon: Good, good, good. That’s a relief.

Abby: Thank god.

[ Chuckles ] I think dominic’s gonna be okay.

[ Sighs ] A lot of people think dealing with copd

provided by…

Mariah: Thank you.

Rey: I didn’t know that you and tessa were considering having a baby. That’s exciting. Isn’t it?

Sharon: Mariah, I didn’t want to share our personal conversation without your permission.

Mariah: Well, I am happy to fill you in, rey. My mom and tessa think that having a baby right now is a knee-jerk reaction, and I’m not about to argue with them. But tessa and I had a really great conversation. We’re in an amazing place now, and we agreed that we’re not even going to discuss getting pregnant until after we get back from victoria’s wedding.

Sharon: I think that’s a great idea. You know, it’ll give tessa some more time to think about it.

Mariah: Yeah, I did sort of spring it on her.

Sharon: And you two have been through so much. You could probably use the time, too.

Mariah: Mom, don’t start. I really am feeling much better right now.

Sharon: Okay. I’ll stop hovering. What’s your agenda for the rest of the day?

Mariah: I’m going to see abby and the baby.

Sharon: Oh.

Mariah: I owe her an apology for the way that tessa and i just packed up and moved out so abruptly, and the least I can do is give her an explanation why.

Sharon: Are you sure you’re ready for that?

Mariah: Yes. I can handle it. I promise you, I am feeling so much stronger, so don’t worry, alright? I will call you later.

Rey: Well, mariah seems like she’s back on track.

Sharon: But is she really?

Sally: I need to find a way to get victoria into this gown. I know that if she could just take one look at it, she would fall in love.

Chloe: Well, too bad her executive assistant was a bust. She wasn’t letting anyone get through who didn’t have an appointment.

Sally: Well, that just means that I have to get a little more creative.

Chloe: Hold it right there. The last thing newman media needs is you pulling some over-the-top stunt.

Sally: Me, over the top?

Chloe: Okay. You know, I think I have a safer idea. What if I call victoria and i tell her that lauren wants to meet her here to have a fitting for the dress with the seamstress?

Sally: You’d be willing to risk lying to victoria?

Chloe: Well, it wouldn’t necessarily be lying if I played the call right. I’ll just say something like, “i spoke with lauren earlier” — which, by the way, is not a lie — and wondering if she would meet me later and we could discuss her wedding dress for our site. I mean, that’s also not a lie. Look, I know that it is a long shot, but well worth it if we can victoria to even just take a look.

Sally: And the minute she sees it, she will know it’s the one.

Chloe: But if victoria wears this dress on her double-mogul wedding day, it will put newman media’s fashion platform firmly on the map and one step closer to my vision of turning it into a full-fledged fashion house.

Sally: Well, what are you waiting for? Make the call.

Alessia: That completes the tour.

Victoria: Thank you, alessia. Couldn’t be more beautiful.

Ashland: And unforgettable.

Alessia: I will let you have your privacy now to get settled.

Congratulazioni.

Ashland: Grazie. Well, I’m glad you were able to sleep for most of the flight. You know, the beauty and the character of this place so thoroughly exceeds my expectations.

Victoria: I was gonna share this with you on our wedding night, but I might as well tell you now. My father deeded us the palazzo as a wedding gift. A home away from home.

Ashland: That’s a very generous gift. And if I’m hearing you right, it sounds like there’s still going to be a wedding.

Billy: I’m going to assume that you were added to the guest list as victor’s plus-one, riding in on his coattails once again.

Adam: Actually, victoria personally invited me to her big day, and I graciously accepted.

Billy: I find it hard to believe that that’s how it went down. Either way, it doesn’t matter. From what I’ve heard, there might not be a wedding.

Adam: What is this, some lame attempt to try to get me to cancel my plans?

Billy: Honestly, adam, i don’t care what you do. Go to italy, turn around and come back. Doesn’t bother me. I know victoria’s already left for tuscany, but that does not guarantee that she’s gonna walk down the aisle.

Adam: Victoria already left, huh? Then why are you hinting that you have some insider info about pre-wedding jitters? She didn’t go all the way there not to get married, billy. What’s this, is this just more wishful thinking?

Billy: You can call it a strong hunch that any minute she’s gonna wake up and realize the insanity of committing to an enigma of a man.

Adam: [ Exhales ] For once, I have more faith in your ex-wife than you do. I think my sister’s deeply in love for the first time in a long time. And she knows exactly what she’s doing.

Your doctor gives you

a prescription.

Abby: I hope you’re texting amanda to tell her what happened last night.

Devon: Yeah, I’m texting her right now, letting her know not to worry about me.

Abby: [ Sighs ] I am so sorry that I kept you here all night.

Devon: Don’T. You have nothing to be sorry about, abby. I fell asleep, like you did, watching dominic.

Abby: Well, we both slept through the night, which means that dominic slept through the night, so it is a very good thing that we called his pediatrician.

Devon: That’s very true. Those drops did the trick.

Abby: But now my little man is hungry, so I’m gonna go get his bottle.

Devon: Okay. How you doing, buddy? Glad you’re feeling better.

[ Doorbell rings ] Oh. Be right back. I’ll grab the door. Hey.

Mariah: Hey.

Devon: Come in.

Mariah: Devon, I did not expect to see you here.

Devon: Yeah, I fell asleep in the chair last night. Abby had me come over ’cause dominic was having some congestion.

Mariah: Oh, no, is he okay?

Devon: Yeah, yeah.

Mariah: Hey. Hi, baby.

Chloe: Already? No, no, no message. Okay, thanks.

Sally: What did victoria’s assistant say? Still stonewalling?

Chloe: Not good news. She and ashland already left for tuscany last night.

Sally: Oh, no, you’ve got to be kidding me.

Chloe: Well, they probably decided to get there early to enjoy italy for a little bit before the family descended on them.

Sally: Well, thank you anyway, chloe. It means a lot that you believe enough in the dress to go out on a limb for me.

Chloe: Well, I just feel horrible for you. I mean, you went through all that trouble for nothing.

Sally: Well, no, I mean, it’s not for nothing. I refuse to give up. It’s just a minor setback. Just another hurdle to jump.

Chloe: But the private jet has sailed. I don’t see any other alternatives here.

Sally: You’re right. It does not look good, which is why I need to work remotely for the next few days.

Chloe: I don’t follow.

Sally: Well, if I cannot bring victoria to the dress, then I will bring the dress to victoria.

Arrivederci, genoa city. I am off to tuscany.

Billy: Like you have any insight into victoria’s heart, given your history of hostility.

Billy: You have a pretty rocky history with victoria yourself. I’m not sure you know her much better. She’s pretty damn happy if even my presence won’t spoil her wedding day.

Billy: Oh, I agree with you there. You make everything worse.

Adam: You know, maybe you don’t realize that this is true love because you’re comparing what victoria and ashland have to whatever idealistic, sitcom setup that you guys shared.

Billy: You have no idea what our relationship was like.

Adam: Well, I do know one thing. With less than a week away from the wedding day, she’s past the point of no return.

Billy: Well, we’ll see about that, won’t we? Who knows? Maybe something or someone will help her see the light.

Victoria: Do you really think that I would fly over 4,000 miles on your private jet with you if I had already decided that I wasn’t gonna go through with the wedding?

Ashland: Well, I will take that as another hopeful sign that the wedding is still on.

Victoria: Wait. Just wait. I left things open because you said that you wanted to talk away from genoa city and my family. So now that we have the place to ourselves without any interruptions, I want to hear everything. What is this thing that you’ve been keeping from me? After the confessions that I’ve already heard, I can only assume that this one is gonna be much worse.

Ashland: [ Sighs ] Why give your family just ordinary eggs going to tell you about exciting medicare advantage plans that can provide broad coverage, and still may save you money on monthly premiums and prescription drugs. With original medicare, you’re covered for hospital stays and doctor office visits. But you have to meet a deductible for each, and then you’re still responsible for 20% of the cost. Next, let’s look at a medicare supplement plan. As you can see, they cover the same things as original medicare, and they also cover your medicare deductibles and co-insurance. But, they often have higher monthly premiums and no prescription drug coverage. Now, let’s take a look at humana’s medicare advantage plans. With a humana medicare advantage plan, hospital stays, doctor office visits and your original medicare deductibles are covered. And of course, most humana medicare advantage plans include prescription drug coverage. In fact, in 2020 humana medicare advantage prescription drug plan members saved an estimated $8,400 on average on their prescription costs. Most humana medicare advantage plans include a silversneakers fitness program at no extra cost. Dental, vision and hearing coverage is included with most humana medicare advantage plans and, you get telehealth coverage with a $0 copay. You get all this for as low as a $0 monthly plan premium in many areas. And your doctor and hospital may already be a part of humana’s large network. If you want the facts, call right now for the free decision guide from humana. There is no obligation, so call the number on your screen right now to see if your doctor is in our network, to find out if you can save on your prescriptions, and to get our free decision guide. Humana, a more human way to healthcare. With downy infusions, let the scent set the mood.

Rey: I mean, I can’t begin to guess what mariah’s feeling inside, but she seems to be in good spirits. I don’t have your keen maternal instincts, of course.

Sharon: My instincts are telling me that there’s warning signs here. See, mariah specializes in pretending that everything’s okay, when it really isn’t, and she’s got that move down to an art form.

Rey: I mean, what else can you do besides being as loving and understanding as you just were?

Sharon: There might be something more.

Tessa: Hi.

Rey: Hey.

Sharon: Hi. You just missed mariah. She said she’s on her way to abby’S.

Tessa: Oh. Really? She didn’t tell me she was going to visit her.

Sharon: Yeah, she seemed upbeat and claimed that she was in a much better emotional space. What do you think? Is that true?

Mariah: Hey. How are you doing today, dominic?

Devon: Just so you know, the doctor wasn’t too concerned when abby called last night.

Mariah: You had to call the pediatrician?

Devon: Yeah, but it’s — all dominic needed was some saline drops. He’s much more comfortable now.

Mariah: Oh, poor baby.

Devon: No, there’s really nothing to worry about. The real reason abby even called me was ’cause she was having trouble getting him to sleep.

Mariah: Abby called you?

[ Dominic fusses ] Oh, shh, shh, shh, shh. Come on, little guy.

Abby: [ Gasps ] Mariah! Hi, how are you?

Mariah: Hi. I’m good. I just wanted to — I just wanted to stop by and apologize for how abruptly we moved out. The truth is, I have been struggling, and tessa’s been trying to help me through it, and I’m actually feeling like I’m in a much better head space noW.

Abby: Well, that is the best news ever. And just so you know, whatever you need, whenever you need it, we’re here.

Mariah: Can I ask you a question?

Abby: Yeah, anything.

Mariah: It seems like a little soon for the baby to be getting sick. What exactly did you do to treat him?

Abby: Dom’s fine. Yeah, we got it covered noW.

Mariah: Oh.

Abby: Oh, excuse me.

Mariah: Yeah.

Abby: Hey, baby. It’s okay, mama’s here. Shh, shh, shh. Oh, my boy, my boy.

[ Gasps ] You hungry? Shh, shh, shh. So, when are you and tessa headed to tuscany?

Mariah: We’re scheduled to fly out soon. But don’t worry, I have been stockpiling and freezing breast milk in case they are any crazy delays or things go wrong over there, and I’m bringing bottles and a bottle sanitizer.

Abby: You know, actually, we’re not going. You know, I thought about it, and I just thought, you know, dominic, he’s way too young to be flying, and I don’t want to leave him with a nanny that long, especially since I would be going out of the country. I also just think this is a good time to switch dominic to formula.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Victor: Son, I’m in a bit of a hurry. You know that I’m attending summer’s wedding, right?

Adam: Oh, I just wanted to share my concern about another wedding — victoria’S. Billy might be planning to interfere, and i just thought that you should know.

Victor: Boy, oh, boy, oh, boY. I just had a feeling billy boy would not let this go. Hates to see victoria happy with another man.

Adam: Yeah, I definitely got the sense that he was up to something.

Victor: Well, we got to stop him, okay? Are you willing to help?

Adam: Um…I mean, I don’t think I’m the right man for the joB. She’s barely tolerating me as a guest at her wedding anyway.

Victor: Son, you’ve got to do this, okay? Especially considering what victoria has done for you, inviting you to attend her wedding. That’s really something. I think you should reciprocate.

Adam: And just how am i supposed to do that?

Victor: By stopping billy boy.

Billy: I don’t know how else to say this, but I need something on the will, okay? I am positive that camilla rhodes mentioned ashland in there somewhere. What? You got to be kidding me, right?

[ Scoffs ] Ashland locke, you son of a bitch. Most bladder leak pads were similar.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Mariah: So, what you’re saying is while I’m gone, you want to wean the baby off of — off of breast milk?

Abby: Yeah, and I know we haven’t followed the contract to the letter, but I feel like now is a good time to make that transition. I hope that’s okay with you.

Mariah: Yeah. Yeah. Um, of course. No, that’s a long, grueling trip, and you and the baby should both stay home.

Abby: I really do, I want to make this as easy on you as i can, so please, if you have any feelings or emotions, don’t be afraid to share them with me. I won’t be offended.

Devon: Same goes for me, too. You know, we’re all friends here. That’s how we got into this in the first place.

Mariah: Thank you. Thank you both for being so understanding.

[ Dominic cries ]

Abby: Oh, shh, shh, shh.

Mariah: Um…I should — I should go now. I’ll see you guys soon, okay?

Abby: Bye.

Devon: See ya.

Abby: [ Exhales ]

Tessa: I want to believe that mariah’s doing better, I really do.

Rey: Something tells me there’s a “but” coming.

Tessa: Well, she was pretty angry when she found out that we were talking behind her back.

Sharon: I was afraid of that.

Tessa: But after we hashed things out, you know, she seemed to start to see where we were coming from and that we were coming from a place of love.

Rey: Okay, hopefully that gets her past some of her anxiety.

Tessa: Yeah, you know, i think it did. She seemed to really hear what i was saying, and she even agreed to put the baby discussion on the back burner until we came back from tuscany, so…

Sharon: I’m so glad you two are going to the wedding. It couldn’t have come at a better time. The time away will be a good break, it’ll be a much-needed vacation, and it’s exactly what you both need right now.

Chloe: I’m just afraid that you’re taking this too far. I mean, do you really think that you can do this? I mean, fly all the way to italy on the chance that victoria will even look at your dress, much less agree to wear it at the last minute? Feels like a bit of a stretch.

Sally: Do you remember how the sight of my dress hit you the moment that you saw it? You immediately knew that it was better than the one that victoria’s currently saddled with? I have no doubt that she will feel the exact same way.

Chloe: I’m not so sure about that, especially considering you are the source. Thanks to your machinations against her niece, you already have one big strike against you.

Sally: Yes, I know the odds are against me, but this is my make-it-or-break-it moment — our make-it-or-break-it moment. This could be a game-changer for our fashion division. I want to turn the fashion platform into a design house just as badly as you do, and having a wedding dress with this much publicity could be a huge step in that direction.

Chloe: Yes, I mean, that’s incredible, for sure.

Sally: So, if it takes flying to tuscany to realize that dream, then that’s what I’m gonna do.

Chloe: I really admire your determination. So I wish you luck.

[ Cellphone rings ] Oh. Yeah, I really got to take this. Be right back.

Sally: [ Sighs ] Adam, I’m glad I ran into you. When do you plan on leaving for the wedding?

Adam: Why?

Sally: Well, turns out I need to bum a ride to italy.

Ashland: As tempted as I am to do everything in my power to convince you to marry me right here and right now, I don’t want to push you into something that doesn’t feel right in your heart.

Victoria: Look, ashland, i know you’re a man who gets anything and everything that he wants. And honestly, I think that’s part of the reason I fell in love with you, because I’m exactly the same way.

Ashland: I so hope that that love can endure what we’re going through right now.

Victoria: I just want you to know that, despite learning what I did about your past, I still love you.

Ashland: And I realize i should have been more forthcoming with you right from the start. Instead of telling you half of the truth of how I became ashland locke, I just should’ve laid it all out.

Victoria: I sort of understand why you didn’T. But I want you to understand something about me. I hate lies. I grew up with a father who kept things from his family whenever it suited him. And I lived with billy and his gambling and his lies for many years.

Ashland: And that’s the exact reason why I feel so deeply regretful about what I’ve done. That I’ve created another cloud of dishonesty in your world. You know, aside from you and nick, I’ve never told another living soul about the decision i made the night of that crash. And there’s only two people that know this other thing that i need to reveal to you. See, there’s been this wall around me ever since my damaged childhood that I couldn’t let anybody through in any way, and I have tried to lower that wall for you, but it doesn’t come naturally or easily. I know I’ve made some huge mistakes and I want to set those right. I want more than anything to make this work. I need this to work. And I will do everything I can to make that happen, and I will do everything I can to prove to you that there will be no more lies — ever.

Victoria: It’s more that you’ve withheld the information.

Ashland: That won’t happen again. But there is one more thing i need to tell you.

Sally: You see, the wedding dress is ready, and it’s spectacular. Unfortunately, the bride took off a little too early to see it.

Adam: Mm-hmm. So you want to fly halfway around the world to present a last-minute alternative dress to my very picky, stubborn, and highly opinionated sister.

Sally: Well, just so you know, I am very picky, stubborn, and highly opinionated myself, and I’m really good at what i do.

Adam: [ Sighs ] I know. I know, I’ve seen some of your work on the dress. But if I go along with this little student of yours, still want to keep things strictly professional between us.

Sally: Believe, this will be completely professional. If victoria walks down the aisle wearing my dress, it’ll get newman fashion more clicks than all of your other divisions combined, I guarantee it.

Adam: Well, you certainly don’t lack confidence.

Sally: Come on, is it really that terrible to fly over there together and keep each other company? If anything, you know I can be entertaining.

Adam: Ah, I guess there’s not any real reason to fight you on this. Sure. Why not?

Sally: I owe you one.

Abby: Oh, no. He doesn’t seem to be doing any better. What do you think?

Devon: I mean, at least he’s taken some of the bottle.

Abby: Do you think we should call the pediatrician?

Devon: Yeah, we can, just to be safe. Let’s see. Here.

Abby: Thank you.

Devon: You got it.

Abby: Dr. Bradley, hi. It is abby chancellor. I’m so sorry to be bothering you again. No, dominic, he did do the saline drops. We put them in his nose, and he slept through the night, but he’s not taking much of his bottle. Yes, yes, he’s active and alert. Okay. Sure, yeah, I will check in with you later. Thanks so much.

Devon: What’d she say?

Abby: Well, she didn’t seem to be too concerned since he’s active and alert and he’s eating a little bit, even if it’s not as much as I’d like.

Devon: Yeah. Okay. Well, that’s exactly what we needed to hear, right?

Abby: Yeah. Guess I’m already an overreacting mom.

Devon: No. You can’t overreact when you got a little life like that to look after.

Abby: This whole baby thing is a constant learning curve, isn’t it?

Devon: Yeah.

Abby: [ Chuckles ]

Devon: Absolutely.

Mariah: Having a baby and starting a family with you — that’s not me avoiding what happened to me. That’S… that’s my way of getting through it all.

Tessa: How do you figure?

Mariah: [ Sighs ] Okay. I-I’m not escaping. I’m saving myself. I have been on my own my entire life, and I have not just survived, but I have thrived. And you’ve done the same, right?

Tessa: Yeah, but I’m not seeing the connection to having a family.

Mariah: [ Sighs ] Do you remember when abby asked me to the be the surrogate and i just thought, “sure, I’ll — I’ll do this for my friend, and then I’ll go back to my life”? Well, I couldn’T.

Tessa: Because you were kidnapped.

Mariah: No. No. Because bringing bowie into this world — it changed me. I realized how much love I have to give to a child, and that’s what this is all about. It’s about the love and the love that I want to pour into our child.

Tessa: But I am not ready for that.

Mariah: How do you know?

Tessa: [ Sighs ]

Mariah: Seriously. I mean, what — what first-time parents are ever really ready?

Tessa: Look, I want — I-I need to be in the right mind-set, and more than anything, I need you to find your balance again.

Mariah: You think I’m unbalanced?

Tessa: I just think it’s wrong to bring a brand-new life into the world to fill a hole in your heart. It’s not fair [Sighs] To saddle a child with the chore of healing a wound.

[ Voice breaking ] It’s not fair to push me for something that i am not ready for. Because then I will lose my balance, and we will both be a mess.

[ Door opens ]

Mariah: Hey.

Tessa: Hey. How’s it going?

Mariah: It’s good.

Tessa: So I saw sharon and rey earlier. They told me you were on your way to see abby.

Mariah: Please don’t tell me the both of you are keeping tabs on me now.

Tessa: Now, now, it was an innocent run-in, I promise. I mean, I was surprised that you didn’t tell me you were on your way to the chancellor house earlier.

Mariah: It was a spur-of-the-moment decision.

Tessa: Well, how’d it go?

Mariah: I had everything planned out in my head, exactly how it was supposed to go, and when I got there, everything changed. Bowie was sick, and abby and devon say that it’s just a cold, and even if it is, I mean, he’s only a month old. That can’t be good, and i just — I couldn’t help but worry.

Tessa: Well, I’m sure that abby is doing everything possible to take of him.

Mariah: I know. She called the pediatrician, and she said that everything was gonna be fine.

Tessa: Oh, well, then I’m sure that it will be.

Mariah: But I can’t possibly leave the country without knowing for sure. Abby and bowie aren’t gonna be at the wedding. I would go crazy wondering if he’s okay or not.

Tessa: Mariah, maybe you should take a step back and let abby deal with this. I mean, you know that she’s gonna handle this with the utmost love and care. I mean, the baby is in amazing hands. You don’t have to worry about him.

Mariah: Tessa, I can’t just stop caring about the baby because we don’t live with him anymore.

Brushing only reaches

25% of your mouth.

Mariah: I can’t just snap my fingers and turn off my feelings. I love bowie, and if he’s sick… this is why having a baby of our own was supposed to help. It was supposed to be someone new I could put my love into and care about and…you just shut down that idea.

Tessa: I didn’t shut down the idea of having a baby. I just thought we should talk about it a little bit more. And I thought we had agreed to table this discussion until we got back from the trip.

Mariah: I think I’ve changed my mind about that.

Tessa: Okay, so you want to talk about it now?

Mariah: No, no. I… about the trip. I’m not going to italy. I have to be here in case bowie needs anything.

Victoria: I’m just gonna assume that this has something to do with that lawyer who came looking for you, jesse gaines.

Ashland: That’s right. I told you how I took over my friend’s life and identity after his fatal crash, and now it’s time I told you about how I made my fortune. And I’m going to tell you everything, but it has been a long day and I imagine you must be really hungry, so why don’t we just shelve this for now and we’ll grab a little bit to eat, okay? And you’re probably gonna want a glass of wine. Or two.

Adam: I need you to find out everything you can about the search chanccomm is conducting for a jesse gaines.

Gaines. Got iT.

Adam: Whatever it takes, my father and I are counting on you to make sure we stay one step ahead of billy abbott.

Yes, sir.

Billy: Okay, marty, what do you got? ‘Cause i find it very hard to believe that there is no record of camilla rhodes’ will or her banking records.

Marty: We couldn’t turn them up.

Billy: Is it possible that ashland made them disappear permanently?

Marty: I can’t be sure. But my people may have hit pay-dirt on another angle of our locke investigation.

Billy: Jesse gaines?

Marty: Yeah. We finally got a bead on him.

Billy: Where is he? I bet he’s got all the answers I’ve been looking for on ashland locke.

Sally: Okay, before you say anything else, let me remind you why this benefits Newman Media. We get eyeballs on the dress, which gives us cred for Newman Media’s fashion platform, and if the dress is as successful as I think that it will be, then we can do a lower-price-point version of it, sell it on our website, and the world will be filled with Victoria Newman-Locke look-alike brides.

Adam: Ah. So, you’re doing all this for the sake of the company. What a team player.

Sally: Yes, I’m glad you recognize that.

Adam: Mm. And you’re taking quite a gamble paying for all of it — with my money.

Sally: This is an investment, not a gamble.

Adam: You’re having a wedding dress designed for someone who has no idea what you’re doing. And I’m assuming she already has a dress, because the wedding is in a few days.

Sally: Okay, but this is a better dress — the perfect dress — for Victoria. And once she sees it, she will fall so in love that she will not want to walk down the aisle in anything else

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Billy: So you’re back. I assume you got my message.

Nick: [ Sighs ] What do you want?

Billy: I think you know. How was your trip to jersey? You know, you were acting all nonchalant when we were talking about this before, but apparently you’re just as interested in ashland’s past as I am.

Nick: Not discussing this with you.

Billy: And why not? The wedding is coming up fast, and your sister has no idea who she’s about to marry. We want the same thing, nick.

Nick: Actually, we don’T. See, you’re obsessed with doing damage to victoria’s relationship, at any cost, any way you can.

Billy: I want the truth. So what did you find out in jersey? Are you following ashland’s money? Because that’s where I’ve been thinking, and I have a theory on that.

Nick: Let it go.

Billy: Well, whatever you found out, obviously it wasn’t good.

Ashland: I got a room here to give you some space to process whatever it is that you’re feeling.

Victoria: I appreciate that.

Ashland: I’m really glad you came. And whatever it is that you want to say, I’m ready to hear it. And as far as your brother goes, I hope you don’t put the blame on him for pursuing this. His motive was just to protect his sister, which I find admirable. Familial love and loyalty is something I never knew growing up, and I think that it is worth holding on to.

Victoria: I didn’t come here to discuss nicholas with you. This is about us. It’s about who we are. At least who I thought we were.

Devon: Okay. There you go.

Amanda: Are you bluffing?

Devon: I don’t know. Am I bluffing?

Amanda: Why don’t we find out? I call and raise.

Devon: Oh. Okay.

[ Chuckles ]

Amanda: Thank you for tonight, by the way. It’s the perfect way to wind down after being in the er with naya.

Devon: I’m just glad the issue was something the doctors could handle easily.

Amanda: Yeah, they said that we’re gonna have to expect these kinds of incidences with her illness, but she’s feeling a lot better now, which is a huge relief.

Devon: Oh, yeah, of course.

Amanda: So, you gonna call my bet or what?

Devon: That’s a good question. Should I call your bet?

Amanda: If you have a winning hand, why not?

Devon: I mean, if that’s the case, I will — what have you got there? I will call and I’ll raise you.

Amanda: [ Laughs ]

Devon: Yeah.

Amanda: Oh, I got you now.

Devon: Well, how you have me?

Amanda: Mm, because you have a tell. See, when you were bluffing, you smirk and your eyes smolder.

Devon: They smolder?

Amanda: [ Laughing ] Yes.

Devon: Maybe that’s just how I look at you. You ever think about that?

Amanda: Maybe. Maybe not.

Devon: Oh, here it is. Oh, my gosh.

Amanda: Oh, oh.

Devon: Take it!

Amanda: Don’t feel too bad. You know what they say? Unlucky in cards, lucky in…

Devon: Love? I’m feeling pretty lucky right now.

Abby: Dominic, dominic, my sweet boy. Oh, I wish you could tell me what’s wrong. I feel like I have tried everything, and nothing is working. Oh. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. Oh, if only grandma nina was here. But, no, no, she is in california. And your dad, well…

[ Dominic fussing ] Okay, shh, shh, shh, shh.

[ Sighs ] Okay. It’s okay. It’s alright, it’s alright. Alright. Shh, shh, shh.

[ Sighs ] Okay, okay. Shh, dominic, it’s okay, it’s okay. Alright.

[ Sighs ] Shh, shh.

Devon: Oh, gosh. Well, you already have most of my — my good chips. What else do I have to offer you?

Amanda: I can think of a few things.

[ Cellphone rings ] Go ahead.

Devon: Yeah? It’s abby. One second. Hey.

Abby: Hi. Well, I was just calling to check on amanda’s mom. Is she okay?

Devon: Oh, yeah, she’s actually doing much better. Thank you for asking. Amanda’s here with me right now.

[ Dominic fussing ] Uh-oh. Who’s not having a good time in the background over there?

Abby: Well, dominic’s been pretty fussy tonight, and I feel like I’ve tried everything. Look, I am so sorry for calling you out of the blue and at this hour, but the last time he was like this, you were the only one that could settle him down. Oh, my god, you said you were with amanda. I am so sorry. Please, just forget that i called.

Devon: Abby, please, no, don’t be sorry at all. It’s okay.

Amanda: Go. She needs your help. Go work your magic with the baby.

Devon: Hey, abby, I will actually be over there right away, okay?

Abby: Thank you so much.

[ Sighs ] It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay.

Sally: Yeah, the hemline needs to come up an inch and a half. No, no, an inch and three-quarters. Yeah, I know we’re doing this at supersonic speed, but I will pay whatever it costs because we have to get this dress done before the bride flies out of town in the next few days. Okay, thank you.

[ Sighs ]

Adam: I gather that call was about your plan to get victoria to wear the wedding dress you designed.

Sally: Okay, before you say anything else, let me remind you why this benefits newman media. We get eyeballs on the dress, which gives us cred for newman media’s fashion platform, and if the dress is as successful as I think that it will be, then we can do a lower-price-point version of it, sell it on our website, and the world will be filled with victoria newman-locke look-alike brides.

Adam: Ah. So you’re doing all this for the sake of the company. What a team player.

Adam: Mm. And you’re taking quite a gamble paying for all of it — with my money.

Sally: This is an investment, not a gamble.

Ashland: I can only imagine how you must be feeling about learning of the circumstances of how I changed my identity.

Victoria: Look, the way that your friend was — it was horrible, but I didn’t come here to judge you for a decision that you made when you were a desperate kid. I can see how it still haunts you.

Ashland: That’s something i can never forget, no matter how I try.

Victoria: I understand that. I really do, but what I don’t get is the choices that you’ve made since we’ve been together. I mean, I’ve tried to see it from your perspective and make sense of it. I assume that when you got sick, you thought that these secrets wouldn’t catch up with you while you were still alive.

Ashland: That’s all true.

Victoria: You see, the problem is being lied to is just unsettlingly familiar to me. I lived with a habitual gambler for many years. I never knew when he was gonna relapse. You know, billy is incredibly charming and fun, but he was a master at lying to my face. One of the reasons I fell in love with you is because you were nothing like that. Or at least, I thought you weren’T. But now it turns out that you are just as unpredictable as billy was.

Ashland: Billy’s search for the truth about me has resurrected these old feelings of doubt and uncertainty in you.

Victoria: It’s about the lies, ashland. I can’t live through that again. I won’T.

Nick: See, I’m tired of you pretending like we’re co-conspirators in this plan to bring ashland down. The only thing I care about is protecting my sister and this family.

Billy: Great, we’re on the same page. That’s all I want, too.

Nick: No, it’s not. See, you want to make a point. You want everyone to pat you on the back and say, “look how smart billy is,” then you’ll get some satisfaction out of knowing that you’re not the only person in this world who let victoria down. Isn’t that the plan here?

Billy: No, it’s not. Not even close. And honestly, you sound a lot like your dad. Is that the direction you want to go, nick? I’m a little surprised and, frankly, hurt that you would think that way, but fine. This is the last time we will speak about this. I’ll see you in tuscany. Unless there’s not going to be a wedding?

Nick: Sorry to disappoint you, but it is still happening.

Billy: Are you going?

Nick: I’m done talking about this with you. I’m flying to milan in the morning to watch my daughter get married.

Amanda: Hey, you.

Phyllis: Hello. Well, if it isn’t the former occupant of room 601 that left so she could move in with her boyfriend. Hmm, can I help you, miss?

Amanda: Um, well, I did come here looking for my friend, but I don’t know, she seems to have gone missing.

Phyllis: Mm. Well, maybe she’s missing because you didn’t tell your friend that you were leaving. She couldn’t even throw you, you know, like, a goodbye party or something like that. Some friend you are.

Amanda: Fair enough.

Phyllis: I’m so excited you moved in with devon! Finally you two acknowledged what the rest of the world could see.

Amanda: Wait, what are you saying, that you knew before we did?

Phyllis: Well, yeah. There’s such a thing as chemistry. But, you know, what I love is that you two really, really respect each other and you’re really good to each other. It’s lovely.

Amanda: Thank you. And I feel so lucky and so blessed to be with such a great guy, you know, just a genuinely good man who makes me feel loved and, gosh, he’s been my rock. He’s been there for me through all the ups and downs with my family.

Phyllis: Yeah. He’s a gem.

Amanda: He is.

Phyllis: Are you meeting him for dinner or cocktails or something?

Amanda: Well, we did have a celebratory dinner planned, but then there was an emergency with my mom, so…

Phyllis: Oh, is she okay?

Amanda: Yeah, no, she’s fine. And then abby called, and she needed devon to come over and help her with the baby. So I had some free time on my hands, and I wanted to see if you wanted to hang out before you just jet off to italy for not one, but two amazing weddings.

Phyllis: Two weddings, i know! I know! Well, I don’t have much to do, except, you know, sit back and look fabulous for the weddings, so come on.

Amanda: Yeah.

Phyllis: Let’s have a cocktail.

Amanda: Let’s catch up.

Phyllis: Yeah, I really want to catch up with everything.

Amanda: Yeah. Let’s do it.

Phyllis: Alright, so, you know what? Let’s go back — let’s go back to devon.

Amanda: Okay.

Phyllis: Yeah. How is he handling this whole abby’s baby thing?

Devon: Oh. I don’t know what’s wrong with you, little man. We’re gonna find out, though, okay?

[ Dominic crying ] It’s okay.

Abby: Oh, gosh.

Devon: Think I lost my magic touch.

Abby: Well, at first, i thought it was just a bout of colic, so I tried putting him on his tummy and rubbing his back, but that didn’t seem to work. And then this cry, it just sounds so different. I mean, does he sound sniffly to you?

Devon: Yeah, he does just a little bit, and he feels warm, too.

Abby: Right? But I tried taking his temperature. I took it like 100 times, and it keeps coming back normal. I was gonna call the pediatrician, but I don’t really have anything to tell her.

[ Sighs ] I just — I feel so helpless. I just wish there was something I could do to make him feel better.

Devon: I know. I hate seeing him like this, too. It’s okay.

Abby: If we both think that he sounds sniffly and congested, I mean, do you think we should call dr. Bradley just in case?

Devon: Yeah, we should probably do it and be safe. It’s okay. Mommy’s calling. It’s okay.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

[]

Devon: It’s okay.

Abby: Okay, great. Thank you so much. Bye.

Devon: What’d she say?

Abby: Well, I feel better after checking in with the doctor, but she said we should try saline drops as the first step.

Devon: Okay, that’s easy. I can go out and get some.

Abby: Normally I would take you up on that, but, gosh, i haven’t seen him this calm and comfortable in hours. I mean, do you think maybe you could watch him and I could go get the drops?

Devon: Yeah, absolutely.

Abby: You sure?

Devon: Of course.

Abby: Okay. Thank you so much. Bye, baby. I love you. Be right back.

Devon: You got it.

Abby: Thank you.

Devon: Absolutely.

Abby: Okay.

Devon: She’ll be right back, okay? Oh. Here we go. There we go. I’m sorry you don’t feel good, buddy. Gonna take care of you, though, alright? Mommy just went out to get you something to make you feel better. Okay? ‘Cause we love you. You have so many people that love you. You have a whole army of family, man. And you know who will always be there for you, no matter what? Me. That’s right. It’s okay.

Amanda: The baby has had a profound impact on devon. You know, he talks about bringing dominic into the world and holding him in his arms, looking down at him, and his eyes opened for the first time. It’s — it’s truly a very deep connection.

[ Cellphone rings ] Oh, it’s devon. Just let me just see if everything’s okay. Hello.

Devon: I just wanted to update you on dominic. He was just a little congested, and abby just ran out to get some drops for him, so I wanted to let you know I’m probably gonna be here for a while.

Amanda: Oh, okay. Yeah, I’m glad that you went over there to help abby. Okay, I will see you soon. I love you.

Devon: I love you, too. Bye.

Amanda: Bye.

Phyllis: Is everything okay?

Amanda: Yeah. Dominic’s a little congested, and the last time he was fussy, devon was the only one who could calm him down, so it seems like he went over and worked his magic again.

Phyllis: Hmm. That’s great.

Amanda: Yeah.

Phyllis: You know that special bond you were talking about?

Amanda: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: I want to tell you something. Jack delivered summer. Did you know that?

Amanda: Really?

Phyllis: Yeah. And even though there’s no biological tie between the two of them, they have a very, very special connection.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] Do you think that jack’s closeness with summer caused conflict between you and nick?

Phyllis: Oh, there were extenuating circumstances.

Amanda: Because I feel like you are trying to warn me, you know, that this whole thing can cause problems for me and devon.

Phyllis: Wow, you feel that way? Really, I’m not trying to do that at all.

Amanda: [ Scoffs ] Well, I want you to know that i support devon being as big a part of dominic’s life as possible, whatever that may look like. I don’t see it as competition. Not at all. No, I see it as something that has enriched devon’s life and, by extension, mine.

Phyllis: That’s great. Truly, that’s great.

Amanda: Well, back to you and jack.

Phyllis: Oh, okay.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] I mean, I think it’s really good that you guys are still close, right?

Phyllis: Oh, it’s great. Oh, I love jack. We’ve gone through so much. We’ll always be good friends.

Amanda: And you guys were married before?

Phyllis: Yeah, yeah.

Amanda: What happened?

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness. Really?

Amanda: Yeah.

Phyllis: Well, it’s complicated. I certainly don’t want to get into it in my hotel lobby.

Amanda: [ Sighs ] Yeah. Okay. Well, maybe we should just go somewhere else and talk about it. Actually, because when you say it’s complicated, I have a feeling that that is a massive understatement.

Adam: Are you planning on finding a way of getting the dress in front of victoria anonymously? Because she’s not gonna wear it, love it or hate it, if she knows it’s from you.

Sally: Wow, don’t sugarcoat it.

Adam: I’m not a beat-around-the-bush kind of guy.

Sally: Well, I’m hoping victoria will appreciate the design and craftsmanship of the gown and maybe respect my chutzpah.

Adam: You clearly don’t know my sister at all.

Sally: You may be the member of the family with the black-sheep rep, but you do not get to be ceo of newman enterprises without occasionally going bare knuckle to get what you want, so I’m hoping that maybe victoria will see a little bit of herself in me and admire the effort it took to get her the perfect dress.

Adam: Or you might just piss her off.

Sally: Yeah, that risk is there, but I’m not gonna let it stop me. Bull in a china shop is sometimes the way to go, damn the consequences. Besides, the enemy of your enemy can be your friend.

Adam: What are you getting at?

Sally: Well, as I understand it, there’s no love lost between victoria and phyllis, so it might be a bonus that phyllis despises mE.

Adam: Maybe. But summer’s also nick’s daughter, and victoria’s close to both of them, so she’s not gonna appreciate what you did to her niece.

Sally: Summer got her dream job and she’s marrying her dream guy, like, tomorrow, so I’ve hurt exactly no one and my work speaks for itself. What do you think? Tell me the cold, hard truth.

Victoria: I asked you point blank if there was anything else that I needed to know, and you looked me dead in the eye and you swore to me that there wasn’T. You were prepared to keep something so monumental from me and to let me walk into this marriage completely blind, and for that reason, I have to ask myself, “is there something else, something that you’re keeping from me that you’re not gonna admit to me until you’re backed into a corner again and forced to be honest?”

Ashland: I get how you feel that way, and I hate that you see the similarities between me and the life you lived with an addict. And I want to try and fix that. Is there anything that would?

Victoria: Getting to the truth. Why don’t we start there? Anything and everything that pertains to us, our life together, our marriage, our company going forward.

Ashland: Absolutely.

Victoria: Alright, why don’t we start with the real reason that jesse gaines is in genoa city.

Ashland: It’s time that i told you all about him.

Victoria: I’m not gonna like it, am I? What makes new salonpas arthritis gel

Ashland: I have no idea how you are going to react, but i will tell you the whole, unvarnished truth about jesse gaines. But I just want to ask you one thing before I do — that we don’t do it here. Can we fly to tuscany tonight? Because my jet is ready, and it’s available to take off whenever we want. The flight will give us some time alone and away from genoa city, because despite whatever you’ve learned about me so far, I truly want to believe that you haven’t stopped loving me.

Victoria: Ashland. How could I stop loving you? You’ve gotten inside of my heart, and that’s just not something that you get rid of so easily.

Ashland: Well, thank god. You don’t know how happy I am to hear you say that.

Victoria: Maybe you’re right. Maybe this flight to italy would be a good idea. We can get away from my family for a while and away from these people that keep trying to interfere in our lives, and maybe it would help us be able to figure some things out.

Ashland: I was hoping and praying that you would say that.

Phyllis: Hey, I am so excited for summer. I can’t wait to see her.

Amanda: Oh, I know. I’m so happy for summer and kyle.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Amanda: And you and nick.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Billy: Well, hello, ladies.

Phyllis: Hey, billy.

Amanda: Hello, there.

Billy: How are you? Everybody good? You — you just missed nick.

Phyllis: Oh. Okay, I can tell. You spoke to him, didn’t you?

Billy: I did. He was pretty fired up about some wedding issues.

Amanda: Summer and kyle’s wedding?

Billy: No, the other wedding.

Phyllis: Don’t you have to meet with lily somewhere?

Billy: No. In fact, lily is in california, handling a little minor crisis with mattie, so i am free at the moment.

Phyllis: Great. I guess that’s so much for our intimate conversation, right?

Amanda: Well, maybe we can all have a drink, as long as billy agrees to behave and not push anyone’s buttons.

Phyllis: Oh, he’s not gonna do that.

Billy: I can totally do that. I will be a perfect social companion. You know what? Drinks are on me.

Amanda: Oh.

Phyllis: Well, that’s good.

[ Cellphone rings ] My front desk manager is calling. I have to get this. Excuse me.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Okay. Well, I haven’t seen you in a while. Is everything good?

Amanda: Yeah, you know, everything’s been great. I’m preparing for my grandfather’s trial. I know that you’ve been following that.

Billy: Yeah, yeah, I’m sure that was difficult to hear the truth about him.

Amanda: Hasn’t been easy. But, you know, I think I’m coming through the other end.

Billy: Good.

Amanda: But on a brighter note, I’m gonna be opening my own legal practice with my sister.

Billy: What?

Amanda: Yes.

Billy: That’s fantastic. Congratulations.

Amanda: Thank you.

Billy: Wow. A lot has happened since you left chanccomm.

Amanda: It certainly has.

Billy: Well, I’m very happy for you.

Amanda: Thanks. I’m glad that things are going well for you, too, billy.

Billy: Yeah. Yeah, they are. Except for one story that we’re working on. We’re following the money — 20-year-old that came into a huge influx of money, possibly from an inheritance from someone that he barely knew. I know that you are not a chanccomm lawyer anymore, but i would love to get your take on it.

Nick: I don’t suppose you were heading up to phyllis’ suite looking for me, were you?

Victoria: I can assure you that you are the last person that I want to see right now.

Nick: Look, can we just go somewhere and sit down and talk?

Victoria: I’ve said everything that there is to say to you, nicholas. You ignored my wishes. You went behind my back. You had ashland investigated. You totally betrayed my trust.

Nick: Vick, come on.

Victoria: You know, this is the first man in a long time that I have felt this kind of connection with. We’re in love. We accomplished the merger of a lifetime together. I asked you to just leave it alone. Just let me be happy. You couldn’t do that?

Nick: ‘Cause I was worried about you. I have concerns about ashland, and it turns out, they are legitimate. And the only reason he told you the truth is because i confronted him with what i learned in new jersey. That’s it. So tell me, where exactly is the betrayal?

Victoria: You were trying to dig up something before the wedding to make me doubt ashland and my love for him.

Nick: That was not my goal. But I got to ask, now that you know, do you have even more doubts about him? Yawns “okay okay, I’m up, I’m up!”

“The young and the restless”

will continue. When we found out our son had autism,

Devon: There you go, buddy. Is that better? That’s better. There you go.

Abby: I got the drops.

Devon: Nice. That was quick.

Abby: How’s he doing?

Devon: Really well.

Abby: Hi, baby.

Devon: Yeah.

Abby: I got the drops.

Devon: She’s back.

Abby: Okay. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. Let’s see.

Devon: What’s it say?

Abby: Says one to two. Okay. There we go. It’s not gonna hurt at all.

Devon: You’re brave.

Abby: You got this, baby.

Devon: Oh.

Abby: Oh, good job.

Devon: Good boy.

Abby: Shh, shh, shh. Oh! Good boy.

Devon: Nice. Nice.

Abby: Good job.

Devon: Hey, good job, mama.

Abby: Thank you. For everything.

[ Chuckles ] Hi.

Adam: I’ll admit, it’s spectacular. I mean, I only saw the early stages of this. Did chloe work with you on this?

Sally: No. Chloe handles everything on the business side. That’s exactly what she did when she worked with chelsea, too. That is 100% my design, my passion. That is what I do, even if it’s technically not my title right now. There were some issues with the craftsmanship, but I’m hoping that the dress will be ready to show victoria by tomorrow afternoon.

Adam: And what if it’s not? What are you gonna do? You gonna fly to tuscany and show up at a destination wedding that you weren’t invited to?

Sally: I’m gonna do whatever it takes.

Adam: Just saying, might be some flaws with your plan.

Ashland: Victoria has decided to fly with me tonight to tuscany.

Victoria: I have to finish some things at the office, then I’m gonna run home and pack.

Ashland: Okay. I’ll call the pilot and finalize things, and I’ll meet you back at the house.

Victoria: As far as my brother attending the wedding goes, my decision still stands. I don’t want him there. He’s not welcome.

Nick: How the hell did you pull this off?

Billy: I’m wondering exactly how this guy could’ve pulled off what he did.

Amanda: Well, maybe he did form a connection with someone that left him an inheritance. I mean, it happens. Rarely, but it does.

Billy: Yeah, the rarely is what’s bugging me. What are the odds of that?

Amanda: It’s a long shot.

Billy: Okay. Let me ask you this, then, how difficult is it to change a will after someone’s already passed away? Didn’t you work on something like that when you first came to town?

Amanda: Yeah, that was a very unfortunate situation. But if you’re asking me how difficult it is to break the law? The person in the best position to do that would be the attorney who drew up the will in the first place. But they would risk disbarment and possible jail time. Another way to do it is if someone came forward with a document claiming that the deceased changed their mind.

Phyllis: What are the two of you talking about so intently?

Abby: I promise I’m gonna perfect this whole parenting thing. I won’t call you every time something seems off.

Devon: Oh, get out of here. You better never stop calling me. I’ll take any excuse to come see him.

Abby: Well, you know you’re welcome here any time.

Devon: Appreciate that.

Abby: Speaking of, I haven’t really spoken to mariah recently. We’ve just exchanged some texts about scheduling tessa dropping off milk for the baby. Have you talked to her?

Devon: Yeah, I have, and she’s still giving me signs to not push too hard.

Abby: Yeah. Well, that’s not the way i wanted things, but I guess that’s just what I have to accept for now.

Devon: Exactly. I think it’s just for now. We just need to stay prepared to jump in and help whenever mariah’s ready.

Abby: I have to admit that waiting is not easy. And I’ve been doing a lot of that recently.

Devon: You have. Any word from chance at all?

Abby: No. But I did start doing the video journal again.

Devon: That’s good.

Abby: I just — I feel so bad that he’s missing the first weeks of dominic’s life.

Devon: Well, just remember that he’s gonna have a lifetime of memories to make with him when he gets back.

Abby: Yeah.

Devon: Right?

Abby: You’re right, yeah.

[ Dominic crying ]

Devon: Uh-oh. No, no, no, I got it, I got it. You relax. What’s going on? You awake? Oh.

Billy: Amanda and I were just catching up.

Phyllis: Amanda and I were just catching up. Are you leaving soon?

Billy: Oh, phyllis, I miss that velvet touch.

Phyllis: Mm.

Billy: She has a soft spot for me.

Phyllis: Well, you’re easier for me to like when you’re not around.

Billy: Okay, alright. You don’t have to tell billy abbott to leave three times. Have a good evening.

Amanda: You, too. I get the feeling that you and billy were pretty intense when you were together, huh?

Phyllis: Yeah, intense. For sure. Not always in a good way. We did really crazy things together and apart. I’ll always regret how we destroyed jack.

Amanda: Is this the part where you tell me what happened between you and jack?

Phyllis: [ Scoffs ] So much happened between me and jack through the years. So much. A lot of outside influences, that’s for sure. There are those people that you hold close to your heart, and jack is one of them.

Nick: I mean, how did you get my sister to just overlook everything you told her and move forward with this wedding?

Ashland: Victoria is more open-minded about the events in my past than you are. She’s much more like her father.

Nick: Oh, okay. And how’s that exactly?

Ashland: Well, it’s just that they both realize the world is not black and white. Mistakes are made and can be forgiven.

Nick: You think I haven’t made any mistakes or forgiven anyone?

Ashland: You obviously hoped that she wouldn’t forgive me.

Nick: I wanted my sister to know exactly who she’s dealing with. And now she does.

Ashland: Hey. We’re not quite finished. With less moderate-to-severe eczema why hide your skin

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Sally: Spectacular — that is how you described the dress. Do you really think victoria’s not gonna want to wear it whenever she sees it?

Adam: I think that you’re playing with fire.

Sally: And you like that about me.

Adam: I — I didn’t say that.

Sally: Mm, yeah, you did, actually. Look, this is a risk that makes a career, okay? Nobody is gonna hand it to me, so I’m just gonna take the advice of my namesake and carpe the damn diem. I’m gonna seize the day, give victoria the wedding dress of her dreams, and create a huge buzz for newman media’s fashion platform in the process.

Adam: Look, I will give you this — when you set your mind to something, you commit.

Sally: You have no idea.

Ashland: What happened to “bobby defranco” the night of that car accident, the choice i made, was the most painful event of my life. What happened was tragic and overwhelming.

Nick: And character-defining.

Ashland: You know, you will never understand what I have carried inside of me since then and what it took to relive it with victoria earlier. So all I can do now is look forward, and I realize that i have no control over any of this, but if you have any decency or compassion in you, you will keep what you know to yourself.

Billy: Listen to me. We need to find out everything we can about the will of a woman named camilla rhodes. I want to know if there was something shady ashland locke pulled off after she died in order to get his hands on her money.

Nick: Ashland shows up with Victoria, and the two of them demand that she’s a part of the conversation.

Phyllis: Well, she must have gone out of her mind, hearing something so epic, right?

Nick: You know, she didn’t say much about that. But later on, when we were talking alone, she just went off on me.

Phyllis: What?

Nick: Yeah, she said i betrayed her confidence. [Breathes deeply] Made it very clear to me that she’s done with me.

Phyllis: With you? Nick!

Nick: It’s what I get for doing the right thing

********†***†

Phyllis: Siblings have squabbles, right? I mean, she’s just mad — Victoria. She’s not gonna cut you out of her life.

Nick: Well, she cut me off the guest list.

Phyllis: What?

Nick: Yep. I’ve been officially disinvited from the wedding.

Phyllis: That’s ridicul– she’s just mad. She’s mad, you know? And she is shooting the well-intentioned messenger. That’s all. I mean, she’s shocked. I’m shocked. I don’t even like this guy, and I’m shocked. I mean, he really took the identity of a dying man? Really?
