Adam: Alright, it’s time to pull the trigger and blow this thing wide open. I’ll call you right back. I am getting really tired of the way that you keep barging in to my office whenever you want.

Sally: Sorry for interrupting your call.

Adam: What do you want?

Sally: Call it intuition or blame it on the conversation we had with billy the other day, but I feel like something major is about to go down, something you’ve been planning behind your closed door.

Adam: Sally, what happens in this office, it’s none of your business.

Sally: But it is, because i work here. So tell me if I’m wrong, but it feels like whatever it is you’re planning is tied to you and your father wanting to do some major damage to billy abbott and chanccomm.

Billy: Rey, I thought we caught up on our small talk at crimson lights. What brings you by?

Rey: You know, something you said before that I just couldn’t shake.

Lily: This isn’t really a good time.

Rey: Well, it’s not gonna take long. Billy, if you prefer, we can talk about this somewhere else privately.

Billy: And why would I do that? Lily and I are partners in every aspect, and I have done nothing illegal.

Lily: You know, this is my office and I’m not going anywhere, so why don’t you get to the point, rey?

Devon: So I spoke with ashley about what’s going on with abby and the baby.

Amanda: Yeah.

Devon: Yeah.

Amanda: You told me you were worried that it might be bad for dominic to be surrounded by this much grief.

Devon: Yeah.

Amanda: So what was her take on it?

Devon: She told me that there’s enough support at the chancellor house for dominic and that he will get all the attention that he needs, and then she brought up the importance of having the baby there at the house with abby so that they can bond during these first few weeks.

Amanda: Did you come around to her way of thinking?

Devon: Uh, I mean, I see her point, but I’m — I’m, you know, concerned still.

Amanda: So what are you gonna do?

Devon: I don’t for sure, but I’m thinking that I might organize a meeting with victor and nina and ashley.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] Grandparent gang, huh?

Devon: Well, yeah, I mean, they’re the people who are closest to abby right now, and i think that we can have a really good conversation about, you know, the best ways we can all protect dominic and still look out for abby and help her through this. I want to make sure that we’re all on the same page when it comes to being aware of abby being overwhelmed or dominic being affected by the grief.

Nina: Look at that. Fast asleep and already in dreamland.

Abby: Thank you.

Nina: Oh. You don’t need to thank me for anything.

Abby: Thank you for being so wonderful to the baby.

Nina: [ Chuckles ]

Abby: And to me, even though my emotions are all over the place.

Nina: I am so happy to be here. Giving all my love to you and to dominic, it’s a wonderful distraction for me. So how you feeling?

Abby: [ Exhales sharply ] Like I want to scream and cry, but if I can’t control myself, how am I supposed to be the mom that dom needs?

Nina: Abby, no one is expecting you to take care of dominic all by yourself right now.

[ Voice breaking ] I mean, you’re dealing with a terrible loss.

Abby: Oh, nina. You’re dealing with it, too.

Nina: [ Crying ] Do you struggle with occasional nerve aches

Rey: My earlier conversations with billy set off some alarms. First he asked me to investigate a missing-perons case, and he’s pointing the finger at adam with no evidence. And then he claims it was all just a big mistake.

Billy: Yeah, I’m not seeing the problem here. I am saying that you were right. I misunderstood.

Rey: [ Chuckles ]

Billy: Adam has that effect on people. You should understand that more than anyone.

Rey: Yeah, that’s the problem, billy. You never admit that you’re wrong, even when you are, and when I pressed you about this sudden shift, you avoided my questions, especially when i brought up whether this missing person had reappeared or not.

Billy: Okay, so because i don’t want to chit-chat or own up to my mistakes, that makes you suspicious?

Rey: I know a dodge when i see one. And you were eager to cut our conversation short at crimson lights.

Lily: Well, he was meeting me. I was having a caffeine emergency.

Rey: [ Chuckles ] Okay. Well, now I’m convinced that you both are hiding something because he said that the coffee wasn’t for you, but for some reporter he was working with about a story.

Billy: What exactly are you accusing us of?

Rey: I think you’re still on the trail of this missing guy, gaines, and you’re dead-set on pinning something on adam.

Billy: Look, even if I was, we’re not involving you. You should be happy about that.

Rey: Not if you think that involving the police was a mistake and you’re gonna handle whatever this is on your own. Because that’s always a very bad idea.

Abby: Please forgive me.

Nina: For what?

Abby: Because I haven’t given you the space that you need to grieve. I have been so overwhelmed with my own emotions that… chance was your son. You are struggling as much as i am.

Nina: I’m just not even sure that I’ve fully accepted death — his death myself. I mean, I can’t believe I’m never gonna hear him laugh again or see that beautiful smile that could light up the world.

Abby: It just doesn’t make sense. How can he be gone?

Nina: It just comes in waves, doesn’t it? I mean, one minute, it just seems unreal, like a nightmare, and the next minute, it’s just too real, it’s too hard.

Abby: I know.

Nina: [ Sniffles ] What you don’t know is how desperately I wanted to get on that jet to spain with you and tear that town apart looking for chance.

Abby: You did?

Nina: Yes. It took everything I had not to go, but [Sniffles] I just knew it was too important. You and I needed to stay and take care of chance’s little boy. Risking our lives is just the wrong thing to do.

Abby: Then what’s right?

Nina: I’m just trying to get through the next 30 seconds. And trying to help you and dominic, I know that’s what chance would want for me right now.

Abby: Yeah. Well, um, [Sniffles] You’re right. Because [Sniffles] I wasn’t being strong, I had a moment of weakness, but, no, I need to get it together. I need to get it together for my son. He’s depending on me.

Nina: No, I wasn’t suggesting that you were weak. Please don’t think that. You’ve been incredibly strong through all of this. I just mean that you don’t need to put so much pressure on yourself.

Devon: I completely get where ashley’s coming from about the baby needing to be at the house to bond with abby. I understand that. But victor and nina might have a different take on the whole situation, and I just want to hear everybody’s ideas.

Amanda: Yeah, alright.

Devon: I hear a “but.”

Amanda: Devon, I want to discuss something with you, but I really want you to receive it in the spirit that it’s being offered.

Devon: Well, of course. You can say anything to me.

Amanda: In light of recent events, I think it might be a good time to revisit the paternity and surrogacy contracts.

Devon: I don’t want to overstep them, though. Why do that?

Amanda: Just hear me out. Like I said, legally, you have no say where the baby resides or who looks after him.

Devon: Right, I know that.

Amanda: But here you are, trying to assemble the grandparents and hatch this plan for abby and the baby.

Devon: That’s ’cause I’m in a position to help.

Amanda: Exactly, I know, and I know you’re trying to help. But I feel like I need to remind you that, if anything happened to abby, that kept her from being dom’s primary caregiver, custody would naturally shift to ashley and/or victor. They would become his legal guardians.

Devon: Okay, yeah.

Amanda: Yeah, so I want to know if you would like to use this opportunity to change that. If anything happened to abby, would you, as the child’s biological father, want to be able to petition for custody of dominic? Frequent heartburn? Not anymore.

Devon: Yeah, no, I — I — I don’t want to revisit the surrogacy contract ’cause that’s just not where my head is at right now.

Amanda: Okay, maybe not right now, but what about down the road? You might feel differently.

Devon: Dominic is chance and abby’s child, and I have all the confidence in the world in abby as a parent and as my friend, so I don’t — I don’t want to petition the courts to change anything if it’s not necessary.

Amanda: Okay. Whatever you want.

Devon: I’m gonna go check on abby, though, before I reach out to the family.

Amanda: Okay. Well, I have plans with naya anyway, so…

Devon: Okay, I’ll walk you to your car.

Amanda: Okay.

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ]

Devon: What’s the matter? Did you forget something?

Amanda: Yeah, um…my filter. Was I overstepping? I’m sorry. Sometimes I just — I get too deep into lawyer mode, and —

Devon: No, no, no, no. You know better than that. It’s fine. I know you’re trying to look out for me. And I also know that this whole situation resonates with you, especially now.

Amanda: Yeah, testifying at sutton’s trial, it — it’s brought up a lot of feelings that I thought that I had dealt with.

Devon: I’m sure it did. There’s no statute of limitations on grieving.

Amanda: You know, my father, he wanted to raise me. He did everything he could to find me, and he wanted me in his life, but he died before he even saw my face.

Devon: I know. And now dominic is gonna have some of that legacy.

Amanda: Yeah, but he will always know who his biological father is. That’s priceless.

Adam: Even if there was a plan to go after chanccomm, why do you care?

Sally: This is my job, and my newly relaunched fashion career hangs in the balance.

Adam: Okay. You’re being a little dramatic, and you’re making this all about you.

Sally: I happen to like my job very much, but it is a position that only exists because of newman media, so if whatever you’re doing blows up, it goes away. And I can’t go through that again. I finally found my place, and i feel like I’m terrified that it’s all about to disappear.

Adam: I would never let that happen.

Sally: I’m sorry for barging in here and for running my mouth, but I would rather speak up than stay silent and regret it forever while all of my dreams just go up in flames.

Adam: I promise you, there’s nothing to worry about.

Sally: Prove it.

Billy: I admire your cop radar, but let me be very clear. I am not gonna risk everything we built by going rogue and doing something illegal. So you’re wasting your time.

Rey: That’s it?

Billy: Yeah, that’s it. Look, you got bit by the same bug that I did, okay? Hoping that adam did something illegal and, you know, maybe this time we could put him away.

Rey: Billy, why are you letting go of your suspicions that adam had something to do with the disappearance of gaines? You were so certain of this the last time we talked.

Billy: [ Sighs ]

Rey: Okay, something is going on, I’m sure of it. And if you don’t tell me, I’m gonna use that cop radar to figure it out.

Lily: Okay, let’s just tell him. Alright? He’s gonna figure it out sooner or later.

Nina: When I said that we have to be here for dominic, i didn’t mean that should pressure you into feeling strong or whatever. I just mean we need to lean on one another, you know? We’re a big, complicated mess of people who want nothing but the best for that little boy. And when one of us stumbles, there’s always someone there to pick them up.

Abby: But I don’t want to be a burden to anyone.

Nina: You’re not a burden. If anything, we don’t want to be a burden to you. You’ve got me. You’ve got your mom and dad and tessa and mariah and devon.

Abby: The baby chancellor crew.

Nina: Yes. We’re all here to take care of one another.

Devon: She’s absolutely right. We are. Hope you don’t mind, I let myself in.

Nina: Hi.

Devon: Hey.

Abby: Of course. Come on in.

Nina: Yeah. We’re family.

Devon: Do you have a second to talk, abby?

Abby: Uh, yeah, yeah. Nina, I’m sorry, do you mind?

Nina: No, not at all. I was just about to give dominic his bath. Is that okay?

Abby: Oh, I’m sure he would love that.

Nina: Okay, good. Hello!

Abby: [ Chuckles ]

Nina: Hi. You want a bath? It’s bath time. Oh!

Abby: Babies love a good routine.

Nina: Yeah, so do I, especially at this moment. Okay. Let’s get a bath. You’re gonna be the sweetest-smelling little thing in all the world. Okay? Yes, you are.

Abby: [ Exhales sharply ] I wish I could be like that.

Devon: Wish you could be like what?

Abby: So sweet and loving and light. The way nina is. She finds joy in the smallest moments. Nina smiles at dom, and right now, all I can give him are my tears.

[Music: Sung by craig robinson]

Lily: Look, we may as well tell him, okay? We’re facing this corporate battle. We don’t want him to be suspicious of us. It’ll be a distraction when we already have our hands full defending chanccomm.

Billy: Well, rey. Guess your cop radar is bang on. Look, the truth is, gaines is alive and well. And he came knocking on our door.

Rey: Why? What does he want?

Billy: Protection. He’s got the goods to take down newman media and ashland, and he’s worried what the newmans will do to stop him.

Lily: He wants the security that chanccomm can provide, so billy and I are weighing our options.

Rey: Okay, well, how does gaines plan on taking down locke? I’m assuming it has something to do with this damning information you told me about earlier.

Billy: Exactly.

Rey: And when you say he wants protection, I’m assuming that means he wants you to publish this information.

Billy: We see gaines’ information as a bargaining chip to get the upper hand on newman media.

Rey: By “bargaining chip,” do you mean blackmail? Because, billy, that’s a crime. One that sounds like you’re ready to commit.

Adam: Sally, I don’t think that I need to prove myself to you.

Sally: It would be nice. I need reassurances.

Adam: Haven’t I shown up for you so far? I gave you a job when everybody told me not to. I took you to italy so you could get your dress on victoria before she walked down the aisle. I mean, I stood up for you when people warned me to walk away.

Sally: Well, I’ve done the same for you. Which is why I think you should let me in on whatever the plan is.

Adam: There’s no upside to that. So just stay in your lane, focus on the fashion platform, and let me handle the business.

Sally: So I shouldn’t worry my pretty little head about the fact that you want to bring chanccomm to its knees? We both know that billy abbott is not going anywhere without a fight.

Adam: Newman media is untouchable. Therefore, you are safe.

[ Sighs ] In fact, coming out of what’s in the works, we’re gonna be better and we’re gonna be stronger than ever.

Sally: But something is going down.

Adam: Yes. And it’s going to happen quickly, so all you need to do is take a deep breath and focus on what is coming down the pipe for you and chloe. But, sally, most of all, trust me.

Devon: Hey. I don’t know if I told you.

Abby: Thanks.

Devon: Yeah. Moses, he gave me this demo to listen to of some kid he knew back in new york, and he just kept pumping it up like he was the next best thing. And he had me listen to it and give him my honest opinion.

Abby: And what did you think?

Devon: I could barely get through it, it was so bad. He was — he was out of tune. The guy couldn’t rhyme. It was awful.

[ Laughs ]

Abby: That is so sad.

Devon: It was embarrassing.

Abby: No, that moses’ friend put so much time and energy into something. I mean, now his hopes and dreams are crushed. He had an idea of what his life was gonna look like, and all of that has been ripped out from under him.

Devon: Abby. Abby, it’s — he’s a kid. He’s a kid. He has time to improve and get better or find out where his real talent lies, and then he’ll have a great life. Doesn’t have to be a sad story.

Abby: I hope you’re right.

Devon: I am, that’s how it works. I’ve seen it a million times. You take your energy and you point it in another direction, and the universe notices.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Devon: You don’t want to listen to my work stories, though, do you?

Abby: Look, I appreciate the distraction, but let’s get to the real reason why you’re here, ’cause you did not ask nina to leave so you could dish about some bad demo.

Devon: Yeah, you’re right. I didn’t do that. I came here so I could check on you and see how you’re really doing.

Abby: [ Sighs ] Well, um… I have my ups and downs, and i am exhausted, but I still can’t sleep, so I took one of those pills that nate prescribed me.

Devon: Did they work?

Abby: I fell asleep, but i slept through dominic crying for me. And I have no idea how long he was crying or how long he needed me. And I just — I woke up, and i felt like a failure. I felt selfish, and then, of course, I broke down again, and thank god nina was here. I mean, gosh.

Devon: The first thing you need to do is you need to stop calling yourself a failure. You’re not. And then you need to realize that chance was the love of your life, and you need to grieve him properly. And nobody is expecting this to be easy for you. And most importantly, you’re not alone. You’re not alone at all, so don’t feel like you are.

Amanda: Are you sure you’re up for this?

Naya: I’m fine.

Amanda: You really should have let me come to you.

Naya: It was important for me to come here, to get out of the house. I needed to talk to you without anyone else in the family around.

Amanda: What’s going on?

Naya: Imani filled me in on your testimony against my father.

Amanda: Well, I am sorry that it had to come to this, but i had to testify against sutton. I hope one day you can understand and forgive me.

Naya: Forgive you? I’ll do nothing of the sort. Amanda, I came here… to raise a glass to my brave daughter. For taking a stand against a man who controlled my life for so long and for getting justice on behalf of your father.

When you have nausea,

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Billy: Again, it sounds like you’re making unfounded accusations. There is a world of difference between blackmail and a business negotiation.

Rey: Well, why don’t you tell me what gaines was using as leverage against locke, and i can decide for myself.

Lily: Okay, look, the truth is —

Billy: Gaines is an asset. Okay? He is a source, and we protect our sources because, truthfully, this story could be huge for us.

Rey: Okay. Listen, billy, if you’re withholding information that could be linked into an official investigation into ashland locke, that’s a crime. I’m assuming this has something to do with some criminal behavior on ashland’s part.

Billy: We understand that the statute of limitations ran out a long time ago on anything he would’ve done illegal.

Rey: Yes, but the information could still be used in civil suits depending on what it is.

Billy: Exactly. Or tarnish his reputation.

Rey: Which could be the newman media and newman/locke merger.

Billy: Business pain. But again, nothing illegal. And since gaines wasn’t the victim of foul play, there’s really nothing for you to concern yourself with.

Rey: I hope not.

Billy: Thanks for coming, detective. You have a good night.

Lily: [ Sighs ] So it sounds like you’re considering publishing the story even though we agreed not to. We said that gaines’ story about his escape from tuscany was shady, so I thought we were gonna hit pause until we figure it out.

Amanda: I was worried that you wouldn’t understand why i had to testify and that you would be angry with me.

Naya: You did the right thing.

Amanda: Well, I hope imani didn’t give you all the gory details.

Naya: She told the unvarnished truth.

Amanda: Hmm.

Naya: That you said richard was a threat to sutton’s reputation, that my father had richard’s brakes tampered with so that your father could never find you and your sister, that sutton tried to record you admitting that you were only testifying for revenge. But you said that you only wanted justice for your father, and that’s what compelled you.

Amanda: I wanted to speak for him because he couldn’t speak for himself.

Naya: You did what none of us could do. You stood up to the great sutton ames.

Amanda: I guess it was easier for me because I didn’t have a lifelong connection with him. You know, I just met the man, so I saw him for who he was, who he is.

Naya: And I want to apologize for that.

Amanda: For what?

Naya: For abandoning you. For not protecting you. For not being a mother to you and your sister.

Amanda: It’s okay, we don’t need to —

Naya: No, no. I do. I feel so blessed and undeserving. Not only did you let me into your life, you stood up for me. You spoke out for me when i couldn’t speak out for myself. And now you’re taking sutton head-on.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] I guess I’m the trouble maker, huh?

Naya: Good trouble. It would have been so easy for you to turn your back on me and the family when you realized what your grandfather had done. And I wouldn’t have blamed you one bit. But you didn’T. You were fearless. You fought for justice for your father. The father you never met because of me.

Amanda: No, it’s not your fault. It’s sutton’s fault. He made you give us away.

Naya: I — I can’t let him take all the blame.

Amanda: Oh, yes, you can.

Naya: I’m not the kind of fighter you are. I agreed to give up my babies. Despite everything, you opened your heart to me. Now all I want to do is heal my heart so that I can be a part of your life for a long time to come and get to know the incredible woman you are.

Devon: When I lost hilary, you know, my whole world imploded. And I — I could have lost anything else in my life — it could’ve been my money or my company, my house — you know, I can replace all that stuff. You can’t replace hilary. She was one-of-a-kind. And my whole world went dark when she died, and the same thing happened to me after neil passed.

Abby: It’s like you’re in this pit and you know that people are there trying to help you, but you can’t lift your arms to reach them.

Devon: Yeah, that’s a — that’s a perfect way to describe it. And I took myself through it afterwards. I — I — you know, I started doing things that I know I shouldn’t have been doing, and hanging out with people that I usually wouldn’T. And I would — I would mask my depression so much, I started having damn panic attacks.

Abby: Look, if you’re worried about me going down a bad path, it’s not gonna happen.& My son, he is depending on me. I need to stay strong for him.

Devon: I know. I know that you know that, and i also know you’re gonna get through this, abby. It’s just gonna take time.

Abby: How?

Devon: With the love and support of your friends and your family. That’s how you’re gonna do it, because that’s how I did it. And I tell you, I wish i would’ve turned to them sooner instead of thinking that I could do it by myself. ‘Cause truthfully, abby, nobody gets through a loss like this without help. And you’re so lucky that you have so many people to help you and to call you every day and to come and check on you. You got to take advantage of that. You really do, and you have to know that it’s okay to fall apart.

Abby: [ Sniffles ] Nina said the same thing, but I can’t help but think that chance would want me to be strong.

Devon: Okay, well, then, you know what? Be strong sometimes. And then don’t other times. There’s no right or wrong way to grieve. And there’s no timeline that you have to follow either. And I know that chance would want you to feel everything that you need to feel.

Abby: Well, you are right about one thing. I am not alone. I have my son, and he is my number-one priority. I have to put him before anything I am going through. Want your clothes to smell freshly washed

Naya: This is nice. Being out with you.

Amanda: I’m so glad that we could get together.

Naya: We need to do this more often.

[ Chuckles ] I just wish imani could have joined us. But there’s plenty of time for that when you two officially open your law practice.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] Yes, that will be a big step for my sister and for me.

Naya: Must be nice. Oh, before I forget, um, I have a friend I want you to meet — viola. You’re going to love her.

Amanda: Oh, is she a paralegal or a law pro?

Naya: No, interior designer. For your office.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] Seriously?

Naya: Okay, don’t say no until you can see what she can do. And I have some ideas of my own on how to make your office look professional and cutting-edge.

Amanda: Oh.

Naya: I’ll e-mail you some pictures.

Amanda: Okay.

[ Laughs ]

Naya: Don’t laugh. Appearances matter.

[ Sighs ] My two daughters are hanging out a shingle and starting their own law firm. You’re building this on your own and you’re beholden to no one. That matters.

Amanda: You know you could’ve done it too, right? If sutton didn’t control your entire life, if you weren’t living in his shadow.

Naya: But I’ve got two brilliant daughters sharing the spotlight.

Amanda: You’re not the same person that you were when we first met. You are courageous. And you are your own woman now.

Naya: Thanks to you. You changed me. You changed us all. Our family has lost a lot over the last year. But we have gained so much more than I ever could’ve imagined. Thank you.

Abby: It isn’t right that this is your first lesson, that life is unfair. Because the world is filled with so much love and beauty, but with your father gone, all I can feel is pain. Pain that won’t go away. Emptiness because the man i loved more than anything in this world is gone. Am I gonna feel this way forever? Shh. It’s okay. Shh. It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay. Shh.

[ Exhales sharply ]

Devon: Hey.

Amanda: Hey. Mm.

Devon: How’d it go with naya?

Amanda: Oh, my — way better than I had expected.

Devon: Yeah?

Amanda: Yeah, she — she gave me this sincere and profound apology.

Devon: What did she apologize for?

Amanda: For abandoning me, for letting me grow up alone, for not being a mother. She says she wants to make up for lost time, and I know I told you that she apologized before, but this time, it was different. It was — it was deep and it was real.

Devon: Yeah. I mean, that’s huge for her to do that. How do you feel about it?

Amanda: I don’t know. You know, I think I’m still trying to process all of it, but it touched me, it really did.

Devon: Good. Good. I mean, I think you guys just kind of — your relationship’s gonna get better and better the closer you guys get.

Amanda: Yeah. You know, I never could’ve imagined any of this. Going into practice with my little sister, you know, being someone’s daughter, dating this incredible man. I mean, this is a strange new world for me.

Devon: But you’re loving it, right?

Amanda: Oh, I could get used to it. So, tell me, how did things go with abby?

Devon: Uh…things went alright.

Amanda: Yeah?

Devon: Yeah. We were able to talk for a while. She’s still having a hard time opening up, but I got a better sense of where her mind is at, at least.

Amanda: Well, devon, she has a lot going on, that’s for sure.

Devon: I know that. We talked a little bit, just about my own grieving process, and, you know, I told her that she shouldn’t expect just to bounce back right away from this. And she’s got to be okay with leaning on the people that want to be there for her. But…I hope she heard me.

Amanda: Yeah, but that’s hard for a lot of us. You know, being able to accept support, especially when we need it the most.

Billy: You’re right. Something’s not right.

[ Sighs ] Why — why does adam not care that we have gaines or the original letter where camilla says she’s leaving nothing to ashland in her will?

Lily: Well, you gave newman media a deadline, and we are about to hit it.

Billy: , But I’m not backing down, which is why I didn’t want rey in here breathing down our neck. I wanted him the hell out of here.

Lily: I think he’s gonna be keeping a close eye on us anyway.

Billy: There’s no doubt about that.

[ Cellphone chimes ] I just need a minute. I need a minute to figure out what our next play is.

Lily: Billy.

Billy: Yeah?

Lily: Check your phone.

Billy: Why?

Lily: Did you really release the story about locke forging the camilla rhodes letter behind my back?

Billy: Of course not.

Lily: Well, it’s been published.

Billy: Where?

Lily: On one of chanccomm’s news sites. I’m 53, but in my mind

Devon: Abby, what are you doing here?

Abby: You’re right. I can’t do this alone.

Billy: Lily, I did not authorize anyone on our staff to publish this story.

Lily: Well, I mean, could it have been some kind of mistake or miscommunication?

Billy: Not even our senior editors have the authorization to publish something like this without our approval.

Lily: Well, I mean, it’s out there. All of it. What ashland did to steal camilla rhodes’ inheritance, the letter from camilla that proves it — everything is in this story. I mean, chanccomm just launched a rocket at ashland and the newmans, and you and I had nothing to do with it. How the hell did that happen?

Next week on “the young and the restless”…

Abby: I need you to take dominic and care for him until i can get my head together.

Adam: Everything went off without a hitch. It’s a perfectly executed plan. And you — you played your role perfectly.

Lily: Did you hear back from victor or adam?

Billy: Nope, not yet. But I’m not worried. They know they have until 6:00 P.M.

Lily: How can you not be nervous?

Billy: Because I know what adam is thinking. This is a classic poker game. He thinks that I’m bluffing. He doesn’t think that we have gaines or the letter that implicates ashland. And he’s panicking right now. He’s on third-level thinking. I’m already on fourth-level thinking. Do you know what I mean?

Lily: No, I don’T.

Billy: In short, I am a step ahead of him. I don’t even know if he’s told victor that we have the goods on ashland and we’re threatening to expose him.

Lily: No, he definitely hasn’T. Otherwise, victor would have sent victoria here immediately to stop you. I’m surprised adam hasn’t already done that.

Billy: I think adam is actually looking for gaines. He thinks he’s on a beach counting his money somewhere. And right about now, it’s probably a good time to tell him that he’s mistaken.

Lily: Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. I think we need to just take a pause.

Billy: Why would you say that? I thought you were more than willing to do anything we needed to do to stop them from coming after us.

Lily: No, I know. I know what I said, and I meant it when I said it, but I was very worked up after seeing adam. And now that I’ve had some time to calm down and think about it, I — I still think that this is a bad idea.

Adam: Alright, well, thanks for the help again. Well, billy hasn’t left the building yet. He’s still in the office.

Victor: Who was that on the phone?

Adam: My source.

Victor: Oh. Okay.

Adam: I’m sure billy’s trying to strategize, cooking up some elaborate plan with a double bluff and misdirection. He’s probably working hard right now to convince lily that his plan’s air-tight.

Victor: To be frank with you, I’m a little disappointed in lily. I’m stunned that she is going along with billy’s schemes, you know? She’s neil winters’ daughter. I thought she had more sense.

Adam: Well, I think she does. She’s definitely the smarter of the two. You know, when she came over here to try to settle things, I offered her a job…

Victor: Uh-huh.

Adam: …When chanccomm falls apart, but, uh, she wasn’t interested.

Victor: Really? Not very smart on her part. She’s gonna regret that decision very soon.

Abby: Come on, dominic. Come on, baby. My sweet boy, mommy loves you, but please, please go to sleep. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. Yeah, yeah, I just need a little break, okay? Shh.

Nina: Is everything alright?

Abby: Yeah, yeah. Um, dominic needs a nap, but i can’t seem to calm him down.

Nina: Well, um, you want me to give a try? Sometimes a different pair of arms will do the trick.

Abby: You know what? Um, he just ate, but maybe he’s hungry. Is there any way you could warm up a bottle, please?

Nina: Yeah. Absolutely.

Abby: Shh, shh, shh.

Nina: Hey, um…do you want maybe I should call in the nanny?

Abby: No, no, no. Just the bottle, please.

Nina: Okay. Well, you want me to take him to the kitchen so you can have a little bit of a break?

Abby: I can handle this. Just the bottle, please.

Nina: Okay.

Abby: Come on. Shh, shh, shh. It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s okay. Shh.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Victor: So, what did billy give us as a deadline?

Adam: 6:00. If you want, I can play along and call him to, uh, negotiate to make him think that we’re stalling.

Victor: Mnh-mnh. Won’t be necessary.

Adam: No. But it would be fun to get his hopes up.

Victor: We’ll be hearing from him soon.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Ashley: What’s going on? Did you hear something juicy? Want your clothes to smell freshly washed

Billy: Okay, I understand you are not comfortable using someone’s past against them as blackmail.

Lily: No, especially when the person is the stepfather to your children.

Billy: I am not planning to reveal what ashland did in his past, okay? I made a promise to victoria, and I plan to be a man of my word.

Lily: Well, victor and adam don’t think you will be.

Billy: Of course not. They think I’m opportunistic and disloyal, and I’m gonna use their feelings about me to my advantage.

Lily: Okay, well, that doesn’t mean that we have to deal with someone as disloyal as gaines. We can take on the newmans ourselves.

Billy: You tried to talk to victoria about that. It didn’t go so well, did it?

Lily: Okay, no, I don’t have all the answers, alright? But I do believe in what we’ve built here as a company, and i think that we can handle anything they throw at us.

Billy: That’s the thing. I don’t want them to throw anything at us, which is why we need to strike first. Best-case scenario — they call a cease-fire. But they’re not gonna do that without incentive.

Lily: I’m just worried that you putting this pressure on them is gonna anger them even more and make them come at us even harder.

Billy: Okay, but I think you’re underestimating how badly they want to protect ashland’s reputation and, by extension, newman media’s reputation. Look, the fact is, locke can’t be charged for his past crimes, okay? But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t open them up to a whole slew of other lawsuits and, in turn, make them vulnerable.

Lily: Yeah, no, you’re right. I mean, they would be swamped by litigations, and it wouldn’t be good for harrison to grow up with that kind of legacy.

Billy: Exactly. And adam and victor are gonna do everything they can to avoid that, which is why they’re gonna keep this quiet.

Lily: But what if gaines doesn’t go along with it? All he wants is to destroy ashland. I mean, he could go rogue.

Billy: I can control gaines.

Lily: Really? Like you did in tuscany?

Billy: That was a misunderstanding. I am confident that I can get gaines to go along with this plan, which is exactly why i need to go talk to him right now.

Lily: Okay, well, I think i should go with you.

Billy: No. That’s not a good idea.

Lily: Well, what if I insist?

Devon: Hey. Is this a bad time?

Billy: No, not at all. It’s a perfect time. I’ve got to run out, but lily’s looking forward to catching up with you.

[ Smooches ] I’ll see you in a little bit.

Devon: What’s going on?

Sally: Ashley abbott. Wow, you are the last person i expected to see.

Ashley: I don’t think you expected to get caught.

Sally: I wasn’t up to anything. I work here now.

Ashley: Yeah. I heard.

Sally: Well, I was just waiting for adam to get done with his meeting with victor so he could sign these purchase reports for our upcoming photo shoots.

Ashley: I have some things to discuss with victor, and it might take a while, so I suggest you find something else to do. Elsewhere, perhaps.

Sally: Yes. Thank you for the suggestion.

[ Knock on door ]

Victor: Yes? My goodness. What a surprise.

Ashley: Hi. I wanted to give you an update on abby.

Adam: Um, would you like for me to give you some privacy while you talk?

Victor: Yes. Thank you.

Ashley: Yeah. I’d like to speak with victor alone.

Adam: Okay. Um, I can handle our lunch meeting on my own.

Victor: Thank you, adam.

Adam: Hey, for the record, i think, um, chance was a hell of a guy. I’d never met anyone with such integrity and a sense of duty. And I feel terrible for abby. The whole reason I haven’t gone over there and seen her is ’cause, um, I don’t want to upset her.

Ashley: Okay. I’ll pass on your condolences.

[ Door closes ]

Victor: What’s the story with our daughter?

Ashley: Nina told me that abby wanted to go to spain to find chance and that victoria talked her out of it.

Victor: Yeah. I was aware of abby’s plan, okay? I asked victoria to try to persuade her sister not to follow through with her plan. And I’m relieved to find out that it worked.

Ashley: Yes, but now that abby seems to be accepting the fact that chance is gone, I’m concerned that she’s just gonna get crushed by her grief.

Victor: [ Breathes deeply ]

Nina: Here we go. Oh, I hope it helps.

Abby: Thank you, thank you, thank you. And thank you for everything that you’ve done for me. I — I honestly — I don’t know what I would do without you.

Nina: Well, you know, I can do more. I can feed him if you want to take a little rest.

Abby: I can feed my son. I have been doing this for months now, and the news from spain about chance — it hasn’t changed that. Come on, dominic. Here you go. Yeah.

Nina: Of course not.

Abby: We’re just gonna have a little bit of a bottle. We are in this together. We can get through this. I know we can. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. Shh, shh, shh.

Lily: No, nothing is, uh, going on. Sometimes billy and I just have different points of view on how to run the company with details sometimes.

Devon: Yeah. Well, that sounds like a normal business relationship/partnership.

Lily: Yeah, it is. I mean, I’m more cautious. He’s risky. But usually it balances out.

Devon: Well, good. Hopefully this is just a one-off thing then, yeah?

Lily: Yeah, it — it’ll be fine. Uh, what’s going on? Why are you here?

Devon: I, um — I need your advice on a sensitive situation.

Lily: Yeah. What’s going on?

Devon: There was an explosion at the safe house that chance was meant to be at in spain.

Lily: Oh, my god.

Devon: Yeah, and it’s looking like he didn’t make it.

Lily: [ Gasps ] Oh, my god, that’s — god, i mean, abby and nina and j– oh, my god, that’s heartbreaking.

Devon: I know. I know. And abby has been going back and forth between denial and despair. And I want to be there for her, but I just don’t — I don’t know the right way to help.

Lily: [ Sighs ]

Nina: [ Gasps ]

Abby: [ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ] A third of a bottle, and he is out. Look at him. He’s so cute when he’s sleeping.

Nina: He’s just gorgeous. Such a handsome little thing. I’m just glad the two of you can get some rest now.

Abby: I-I can’T. Um, I have to check in at the restaurant.

Nina: Oh, no. Abby, you’ve got such a wonderful team. I’m sure they’re taking care of everything.

Abby: Oh, it’s — it’s not the same.

Nina: Well, maybe you could ask devon to go over and look in on the place.

Abby: He’s already done so much for me. Everyone has. And I hate it.

[ Sighs ] I’m sorry. I… I didn’t mean that the way that it sounded. I — I appreciate everything that everyone has done for me, the way that everyone has stepped up, but, um [Sniffles] It makes me feel weak.

Nina: Oh, no.

Abby: And that’s not how i am, and that’s certainly not the woman that chance fell in love with. He’d — he’d expected more from me.

Nina: Abby, no. Chance would understand. We’re all hurting. He wouldn’t want us to hide our feelings.

Abby: Yeah. I can’t argue with that. But [Sniffles] I mean, there’s just so much that I need to do, so many things I’ve been putting off.

Nina: Like what?

Abby: Like calling everyone that loves chance. I need to tell them what’s going on, like — like jill. I just — I can’t bring myself to do it. How can I find the words?

Rey: Hey. How’s, uh, your investigation going?

Billy: It’s, uh — it’s fizzled out, actually.

Rey: Is that right?

Billy: Uh, yeah. You know what? I shouldn’t have even brought it up to you.

Rey: That surprises me. You seemed so determined to prove that adam was responsible for that guy missing.

Billy: Well, I was wrong. What can I say?

Rey: [ Chuckles ] How can you be so sure? Did the guy show up again?

Billy: No, he didn’T. I guess I’m just getting a little crazy thinking that adam was capable of doing something to that extreme.

Rey: Oh, you don’t think adam newman is capable of abducting someone?

Billy: Well, maybe in the old days. But he’s a changed man now. Haven’t you heard? Yeah, he’s got a new job. He’s a respectful parent. He’s doing a great job impersonating a decent human being, and I don’t think that he’s gonna jeopardize all of that for a nobody.

Sharon: Billy, I have your order.

Billy: Great. Thank you.

Sharon: Here’s the food and coffees. I’ll just get some extra cream for lily.

Billy: Oh, don’t worry about that. It’s not for lily. We have a writer working around the clock on a big story, and we have to keep him nourished.

Sharon: Sounds juicy. What’s that about?

Billy: Well, you know, it’s hush-hush right now. But it will be big. Thank you, sharon. Good to see you, detective.

Sharon: Uh-oh. I know that look. What’s wrong?

Rey: Uh, billy. You know, he’s not as good a liar as he thinks he is.

Sharon: What do you mean?

Rey: Never mind.

Sharon: Well, this has to have something to do with adam.

Rey: Yeah. Despite my best efforts, I can’t avoid hearing about the guy.

Sharon: Well, I got the impression from talking to lily that those two are still going at it. Was billy making any wild accusations about adam?

Rey: Just the opposite. It seemed that billy was defending adam.

Sharon: Wow. That is strange.

[ “Best of my love” by black pumas feat. Sofia reyes ]

Nina: I told jill. It was hard, but she knows. And I also told phillip.

Abby: I’m sorry. I should have done that. That’s my responsibility.

Nina: No. Abby, that’s your responsibility. You can make those calls later, when you feel like it, when you’re ready. But nobody absolutely, positively has to hear from you right now. You know what I mean? I know that you’re the kind of person that wants to do everything on your own. But let me help. Chance would want me to do everything I can to lighten your load.

Abby: I bet jill and phillip are devastated.

Nina: Yeah. They are. They handled it very differently. Phillip, you know, got quiet and withdraws. That’s kind of his thing. And jill wanted to get on a plane and take charge. But I told her just to give us some time, you know? She can be a bit much.

Abby: Well, she is welcome here anytime.

Nina: And she will be very happy that from you when you’re ready. Jill will grieve in her own way. She’s had a lot of loss through the years, and she’s always found a way to pick herself up and keep going.

Abby: Yeah.

[ Cellphone pings ] Is that jill?

Nina: No, it’s just my agent. I, um — I really should call him, okay?

Abby: Yeah, no worries, yeah.

Nina: Okay.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Devon: Yeah, so, then today abby was convinced that she should drop everything and fly to the site of the bombing to search for chance herself. And she had nina almost convinced that it was a good idea to go with her.

Lily: Oh, my god, that’s so sad. And it’s irrational and dangerous. It’s like — it just shows how much they want to believe that he’s alive and he’s coming back.

Devon: I know, but it’s the irrational thinking that I have a problem with because she has dominic, you know? You can’t think irrationally when you have a child. And mariah was there, too, and instead of trying to convince abby to do the right thing, she was offering to stay behind to watch dominic while abby’s gone.

Lily: Wait. Didn’t mariah move out of the house because she was getting too close to the baby?

Devon: Yes, she sure did, which is my point, because, you know, she’s been doing a lot better with all this. She’s been back to work and taking care of herself and focusing on her future with tessa. And then something like this happenS.

Lily: Do you think maybe she’s using the crisis to get closer to dominic?

Devon: Not on purpose or anything like that. I just think she sees that dominic is in distress and she feels like the best person to help him.

Lily: So she feels like he’s reacting to all the stress in the house?

Devon: Well, yeah, because he is. He can absolutely sense the tension in there. And I’ve tried to help by getting him out and taking him for walks and stuff like that.

Lily: Yeah, I mean, it sounds like what he needs.

Devon: Yeah, but this is — this is where I need your advice.

Lily: Yeah. What’s up?

Devon: Um, well, when I take him out, you know, it’s usually just for, like, an hour or two at the most, and then I’m bringing him right back into a stressful environment.

Lily: Well, I mean, abby has a nanny, right?

Devon: Yeah, she does.

Lily: Okay, well, maybe she should up the nanny’s hours for a while.

Devon: Well, yeah, that’s a possibility. But a nanny doesn’t solve the problem of the baby being around that kind of energy. So I’m wondering if it’s, you know, a better idea to move dominic out of that house temporarily, just until things stabilizE.

Billy: Jesse. It’s billy. I got some coffee and a few sugary treats here for you.

Gaines: Good. Just what I needed.

Billy: Yeah. You could use a little something. I’m sure you’re feeling a little bit like a rat in a cage right about now.

Gaines: Mm. Yeah, just a bit.

Billy: Well, don’t worry. Soon enough, you’ll be living the life that you want.

Gaines: Well, and that better happen long before the story about locke breaks. When is that happening?

Billy: That’s why I’m here. I wanted to talk to you about a few options.

Gaines: Wait. What does that mean — “options”?

Billy: It just means that we need to think about how we move forward from here.

Gaines: Oh, wait a minute. I don’t like the sound of that. I came back here — no, I fought my way back here for one reason and one reason only — to take down ashland locke. So, as far as options go, that’s it.

Billy: I understand that. I do. But we need to be smart. And when I brought you to tuscany, I gained the wrath of not only ashland, but the newmans.

Gaines: I think they already hated you.

Billy: Yeah, that part is true. But now they are coming after chanccomm. And I like my business. I’ve got good employees there, talented people that I don’t want to see them lose their livelihood. So please understand that there’s more to consider than just what you want.

Gaines: I see what’s happening here. They got to you, and now you’re chickening out.

Billy: No. I’m simply trying to make sure that we don’t shoot ourselves in the foot.

Gaines: Remember, I gave you camilla rhodes’ letter, the letter that can destroy locke. And now, what, you’re on their team and you’re gonna betray me?

Billy: Jesse, believe me, we are on the same team.

Gaines: Oh, are we? If that’s true, then riddle me this. Are you going to expose locke for the fraud that he is or not?

Billy: There is more to consider.

Gaines: No. I will tell you, it is pretty damn simple.

Billy: We have more power if we do not go public.

Gaines: I knew that i shouldn’t have trusted you. I knew it.& But it’s okay. I don’t need you. As a matter of fact, I don’t even need the damn letter because I will find somebody in the news media who has got some guts, and they will publish the story. The newmans will still be after you, and you will have missed the biggest story of your life. Stupid move, abbott. Stupid move.

[ Sighs ] Once upon a time there was a reindeer named tiptoe 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. Clerk: Hello, how can I?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Billy: Look, there is no doubt that you can find somebody else to public this story. But what happens when you do? Who’s gonna protect you when victor comes after you? I can’T. I’ll be too busy trying to defend chanccomm from his attacks. We need to stick together, or it makes it too easy for him to pick us off one by one.

Gaines: I have been waiting half of my life to take locke down.

Billy: I get that. But what’s a few more days? Jesse, you didn’t come forward with this until you found out that ashland was dying. You’ve had this letter the entire time. Why didn’t you release it back then?

Gaines: I…was just waiting for the right moment.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] You’re a very patient man. And I’m sure you enjoyed that blackmail money rolling in, as well.

Gaines: Yeah, well, when i found out he was dying, i figured, “it’s now or never.”

Billy: Well, what you did by waiting was maximize your value. Ashland tied his fortune to the newmans when he married victoria, and they merged their companies. You now have two entities that’ll pay you anything you want to keep that letter quiet long after ashland is gone.

Gaines: That was smart, wasn’t it?

Billy: Once that story goes public, you got nothing else to negotiate. Withholding that letter is your superpower, and I am going to need you to use that power to protect me and chanccomm. We can hold camilla’s letter over victor’s head for a long time. Meanwhile, I keep you safe, living the life wherever you want, far away from this mess.

Gaines: That’s your offer?

Billy: It’s the best offer you’re gonna get. Victor does not like you, and ashland is dying. There’s no one else to pay your bills. Now, I understand you want to humiliate ashland. But understand — is that fleeting moment of satisfaction worth throwing everything else away? You can also think of it this way. Ashland will be spending his last days wondering when you are going to expose him. He will be living in his own private hell, which is what you’ve wanted this entire time.

Gaines: Well, I do like the sound of that.

Lily: So, are you prepared to take care of a baby long-term?

Devon: Yeah, absolutely I am ’cause I know that I’d have a ton of help if I took this on. So I’m not worried about that part.

Lily: Okay. Then what?

Devon: What’s holding me back is suggesting it to abby ’cause I don’t know how she’s gonna react. You know, she’s feeling a lot of pain right now, and I don’t want to add to it by making her feel like she can’t take care of her own child.

Lily: Well, I mean, from what you’ve said, it sounds like you already have doubts about that.

Devon: No. Let me be very clear that I have zero doubts about abby’s ability to be a parent. I just feel like, at this point in time, maybe it’s best for both of them if she can grieve and heal properly without having to worry about a kid 24/7. ‘Cause she was already getting stressed out as a single mom before chance went missing. So it’s just — it seems like a lot to ask of her right now.

Lily: Well, just to be clear, this can only happen if abby agrees to it, right?

Devon: Oh, yeah, absolutely, ’cause I have no legal say over what happens to dominic. And that doesn’t change with chance being gone, either. So every decision about that baby is up to abby.

Lily: [ Sighs ] Well, look, I think that she’ll be getting advice from her mom. So maybe you should talk to ashley? You know? I think she’ll be able to tell how close abby is to a breaking point. And I think she’s one of the smartest people I’ve ever met, so I think she’ll be able to give really good advice on how to handle this.

Devon: Yeah. Well, I’m glad that I came to see one of the smartest people I know ’cause that’s very good advice. It is. I’m gonna do it.

Sharon: My advice is to keep listening to abby. Let her tell you what she wants.

Ashley: Yeah, well, she doesn’t admit to wanting or needing anything, actually.

Sharon: Then I doubt it would be productive for me to speak with her again.

Ashley: Yeah, I know. It’s gonna be a while before she’s in the frame of mind to seek therapy. But if she does decide to go for professional help, I’ll let you know.

[ Cellphone ringing ] Excuse me. Hey, devon. Sure. Um, I’m at the coffee house now. Do you want to meet me? Okay. Thanks.

[ Sighs ]

Sally: Running into you twice in one day. It must be a sign.

Ashley: Of what?

Sally: That I should interview you. Newman media’s fashion platform also covers the beauty industry, and I think our readers would be fascinated to know how the sausage — or, in this case, the lipstick — gets made. And who better to tell them than a renowned cosmetic chemist? So, we can do it right now.

Ashley: Yeah, I’m meeting somebody.

Sally: I’ll be quick.

Ashley: I don’t want to be rude, but hell no.

Sally: Why?

Ashley: Lots of reasons. What you did to kyle and summer.

Sally: Oh, my god, when are people gonna let that go? I just saw them at victoria’s wedding. They’re thriving.

Ashley: What about my brother? You hurt jack.

Sally: He made it completely clear that he is definitely over it, so you should be, too.

Ashley: And then there’s your boss — adam. Not my favorite person. I’ll let him tell you why.

Sally: I won’t bother. You seem like someone who likes to hold grudges.

Ashley: And most importantly of all, I’m not in the mood to listen to you and answer a bunch of your stupid questions about a puff piece.

Sally: Okay. Well, I was hoping to build a bridge between jabot and newman. It would have been great for both companies. But now I’m wondering why I even want to get back in the abbotts’ good graces.

Adam: They’re on board to come on as advertisers.

Victor: Oh, yeah? Well, I think it’ll be a good partnership. Thanks for handling that.

Adam: Uh-huh. Hey, I don’t mean to, um, pry, but anything new happen with abby?

Victor: She’s still struggling, you know? I feel for her. I’ll do everything in my power to help her through this.

Adam: Well, I’m afraid not even your considerable powers are enough to, uh, help. Takes a while to come to terms with losing someone you love.

[ Tablet pings ]

Victor: Yeah.

Adam: I think you’ll be interested in this message.

Gaines: Hello, gentlemen. I’m back. Looks like I got a few more lives left in me. Sweet pillows of softness!

[ Dominic crying ]

Abby: Where is he? Where’s my baby?

[ Breathing heavily ]

Devon: Ashley, hey. I appreciate you meeting me like this.

Ashley: Of course. You said you were worried about abby. What’s going on?

Devon: Yeah. Um, I didn’t mean to alarm you or anything like that. I just wanted to talk and get your perspective on something because I know that you understand how difficult the grieving process can be.

Ashley: I do. And, again, I’m so grateful that abby has you and your support because I think you, more than anybody, knows what she’s going through.

Devon: Well, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate hearing you say that, um, because i would like to do more to help abby. Um…but I just — I don’t want to overstep, and I don’t want to offend anybody.

Gaines: Surprised that I am still standing after whatever it was that you had planned for me it italy? Oh, and by the way, I still have camilla rhodes’ letter. The one that you took from me in italy was a copy. But I hope you enjoyed reading it. The original is safe and secure…or at least that’s what billy abbott tells me.

[ Inhales deeply ] You should be grateful to old billy, really, because if he hadn’t convinced me to be patient, the story about locke’s greed and fraud would be front-page news right now, which is exactly what I want. I want the whole world to know about the fraud that started his empire with a crime. And that is exactly what will happen if you don’t do exactly what billy tells you to.

Billy: Well, that was fantastic. That was fantastic. I’m sure adam is freaking out right now trying to figure out how to explain himself to ashland that he lost control of the situation and I gained the upper hand.

Gaines: I don’t care about any of that. I just want to make sure that you’re holding up your end of the bargain — that I get paid and that I receive safe passage to my new life, living in anonymous comfort for the rest of my days.

Billy: Jesse, I told you that —

[ Cellphone pings ] Well, well, well. Just like I planned. Adam newman. What the hell?

Gaines: What did he say?

Billy: He said, “nice try. Futile attempt, but I enjoyed watching you work so hard.”

Gaines: What the hell does that mean?

Billy: I have no idea. I have no idea what game he is playing. You stay here. Don’t leave. Lock the door behind me. Do not answer it for anyone else. I will be in touch.

Ashley: You think dominic should stay with you?

Devon: I do. I really do. And it would only be for a short time, of course, just until, you know, abby starts feeling like herself again.

Ashley: Yeah. It’s a very, very sweet offer. And, um, I mean, obviously I’m concerned about her. She’s overwhelmed, and she’s — she’s struggling.

Devon: Yeah.

Ashley: But on the positive side, she has all of her family and friends that are rallying around her. You know, she’s got you and nina, and — and her father and I are taking turns staying with her.

Devon: Yeah.

Ashley: She’s got the nanny, right? So, I mean, she’s really surrounded by so much love and so much support all the time.

Devon: Absolutely, and i completely get that. My only issue, though, is that everyone except for the nanny is grieving chance just like abby is.

Ashley: And you think that’s a problem?

Devon: Ashley, what worries me is — is dominic being around and absorbing all of that negative energy and that stress in the house and all the emotions — ’cause I know he feels it. I mean, you have to — I’m sure you’ve realized that he’s crying a lot more than he ever has before. His schedules are all off whack. I’m concerned about what this is going to do to him long-term.

Ashley: Yeah. I mean, I — I hear what you’re saying. I think it’s something we should watch out for, but I don’t think that we should deprive dominic and his mommy of this time together because, devon, they’re bonding. It’s so important to have this mother-child bond that they’re creating. This child will help abby heal, you know? He’ll give her hope…

Devon: Yeah.

Ashley: …For the future. So, as her mother, in my opinion, I think that baby needs to stay with abby in their home.

Devon: No, I understand. I do. I see your point. And it’s a good one. Um…I just hope that you’re right.

Abby: [ Exhales heavily ] I drifted off.

Nina: Good. You needed to get some rest.

Abby: Was he crying? I-I could hear him in my sleep.

Nina: Oh, just a little bit. I think he as a little bit gassy. But he’s okay now. Aren’t you? You little sweetie.

Abby: I took one of these pills that nate prescribed me, and it knocked me out.

Nina: I think that’s great. You needed to get some sleep.

Abby: But I wasn’t there when he needed me.

Nina: Abby, caring for a newborn baby is not a one-person job. We all need a break. Let me help. I mean, that’s why I’m here. That’s what grandmas are for.

Abby: But I have been such a wreck lately.

[ Sniffles ] I mean, he’s been spending so much more time with other people. Does he even know who his mother is?

Nina: Abby, of course he does. He loves you. He adores you.

Abby: Nina…

Nina: What?

Abby: I don’t think I can do this.

Nina: Ohh.

Billy: I don’t know what’s going on. Something happened, and I need more information.

Lily: Okay, slow down. What’s happening?

Billy: Okay. I was able to convince gaines to go along with the plan. We recorded a message and sent that to adam, where gaines threatened to expose ashland’s truth to the world unless the newmans back the hell off.

Lily: Right. That’s what you wanted.

Billy: Yes, but it was adam’s response — “nice try.”

Lily: [ Scoffs ] What does that mean?

Billy: I don’t know. It’s like he’s — he’s daring us to expose ashland’s past, and i don’t understand. I mean, are ashland and adam going against each other? Did they somehow turn into enemies?

Lily: No. I doubt it, now that ashland’s married into the family.

Billy: Okay, well, adam was not threatened by our threat in the least, and I don’t understand what’s going on, but we need to figure it out — and fast.

Rey: Why is that?

Adam: Billy’s back in the office now? Alright, it’s time to pull the trigger and blow this thing wide open.

Sally: [ Scoffs ]

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Phyllis: So you spent your entire lunch giving me a pep talk, and now you’re going to work out.

Jack: Well, you exercised my brain. Now I have to take care of the rest of my body.

Phyllis: Thank you for pulling me out of my funk.

Jack: I’m always here for you.

Phyllis: I know that.

Amanda: I appreciate you escorting me home from the courthouse.

Michael: I know you were perfectly capable of extricating yourself from that pack of vultures/reporters parked on the courthouse steps, but, you know, I was just happy to be lending a hand.

Amanda: Well, I really do appreciate it, michael. Thlast thing that I wanted to do was answer more questions after testifying.

Michael: Mm.

Amanda: I think I left every single thing I had on that stand.

Michael: You did.

Amanda: Cheers.

[ Cellphone rings ] Mm. Excuse me. Oh, it’s devon. Can you give me a second? Hey.

Devon: Hey, I’m glad I caught you. Did you make it home okay?

Amanda: Yeah, I’m fine. I’m back at the penthouse now. Michael’s here. The trial’s over for today.

Devon: Hey, I’m really sorry that I couldn’t be in court with you.

Amanda: No, don’t apologize. I completely understand why you need to be there for abby and dominic. How are things going over there?

Devon: They’re — it’s tense, but everything’s steady right now. But tell me real quick how your testimony went.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] I am not even sure yet. It’s a lot to process, you know? Do you think I can fill you in when you get home?

Devon: Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. I’ll talk to you later.

Amanda: Okay, bye.

Amanda: [ Sighs ] Now that I’ve had a chance to breathe, I want your honest opinion about how things went today. Sutton’s lawyers are building a strong defense, so taking the stand, did that achieve what we had hoped? Do you think that my grandfather is one step closer to being convicted?

Devon: Well, you came at a quiet time. Everybody’s upstairs. Nina, abby, and ashley are all trying to get some sleep. But I know that abby’s probably gonna be down soon ’cause she hasn’t been sleeping at all.

Nick: Yeah. I bet she’s not sleeping. I mean, to get that kind of news has got to be devastating. How’s she coping?

Devon: She’s not well. She was in a really dark place earlier today. She was convinced that she should fly herself to spain to the site of the explosion to search for chance herself.

Nick: She can’t do that.

Devon: No, I know she can’t do it. We all convinced her that it was a bad idea, including victoria who stopped by. But once she got the idea out of her mind, she fell apart completely. The reality of never being able to see her husband again is starting to set in. It’s too much for her. It’s gonna take a really long time for her to get past all this pain and this loss. And she’s really gonna need all of our help and support to get through this.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Yeah, I’ll do whatever it takes to help her. We’ll make sure she gets everything she needs.

Chloe: Hey! Hello, over here.

Sally: Yeah.

Chloe: You haven’t heard anything I’ve said in the last five minutes.

Sally: Yes, I have. I was listening.

Chloe: You’re still thinking about phyllis and jack.

Sally: [ Scoffs ]

Chloe: I saw the way that you were looking at them. Don’t deny it.

Sally: Fine, yes, I was a little miffed.

Chloe: A little more than miffed. But I don’t get why. I thought that you were over jack, which you should be, since your relationship ended eons ago. You’re not still harboring hope that you could get back together. Are you?

Michael: I was very pleased with how your testimony went. I mean, no doubt it was a painful position for you emotionally, but you were poised, eloquent, in control.

Amanda: Well, I am glad that it looked that way from the outside. But watching sutton at that defense table, staring at me as I was laying out what happened, it was tearing me up inside. So all I could do was maintain a facade of strength and control.

Michael: Well, you did it. You pulled it off and then some. And, I mean, I was not surprised. I never had any doubt in you. At one point, did you represent sutton ames as his attorney?

Amanda: Yes.

Michael: Can you explain the reasons you went from being one of your grandfather’s defenders to testifying against him?

Amanda: I had reason to believe that he had my father killed.

Michael: You handled yourself perfectly. I mean, you shared your pain and your humanity with the jury in an entirely genuine way, but still remembered to bring the story back to the innocent life that was taken and the man who was responsible for your father’s death. How did you come to suspect that sutton ames was responsible for your father’s death?

Amanda: My father’s brakes were tampered with when he was searching for me and my sister. See, my sister and I were given up at birth, in part due to mr. Ames. When I learned this, the scales started to fall from my eyes one by one, and I realized the truth. Sutton ames saw my father as no more than a potential threat that needed to be eliminated.

Michael: I’m sorry, a threat?

Amanda: Yeah. To his sterling reputation. To his political career. See, sutton, he could not stand the thought of his perfect image being tainted, so my sister hilary and I, we were, um, nothing more than a dirty secret that could never come to light. As gut-wrenching as it was to say all of that out loud and in public, it was cathartic, too.

Michael: Well, as your friend, I’m glad you were able to gain some closure from it. As the da, I really appreciate how you cut the legs out from under sutton’s attorney before he could take a swipe. I mean, that was just genius.

[ Laughs ] Is it true that mr. Ames recently came to see you when he learned that you would be a witness in this trial?

Amanda: Yes, he was trying to secretly record me admitting that the only reason I was testifying against him was out of vindictiveness.

Michael: Wow. Were you surprised by this tactic?

Amanda: Not at all. My grandfather has been desperate and furious that i would dare stand up to him.

Michael: This entire ordeal must be very painful for you.

Amanda: Have I been wounded by my grandfather’s actions? Absolutely. But this is not about revenge for me. This is about justice for my father, richard nealon. That is the only reason I am here today.

Michael: I really think your words made a difference to the jury.

Amanda: I hope so. But it was just important for me to do right by my father. I know it’s gonna bring him back, but maybe he’s looking down and he sees that I’m fighting for him, too.

Michael: I promise, you did him proud.

Abby: Nick. You heard the news?

Nick: Yeah. I’m so sorry. I just want you to know I’m here if you need anything.

Abby: Thank you. I don’t even know what that is right now, but thanks for coming.

Devon: Hey, I figure that you guys want some time alone, so I’m gonna take off unless you need me to stick around for anything, abby.

Abby: No, no, no, I’m fine. Thanks.

Devon: Alright. I’ll see you, nick.

Nick: Yeah, see you, bud.

Abby: I’m sorry I didn’t tell you myself.

Nick: Oh, abby, with everything that you’ve been dealing with, I don’t care about that, I just care about you.

Sally: I have zero hope and zero interest in rekindling things with jack, and I’ve accepted that it’s never gonna happen. But it infuriates me that I am considered a pariah in this town and treated like a total villain while phyllis, somehow, is the wicked witch with a heart of gold. That woman hurt jack far worse than I ever did, and now, i mean, look at him. He’s still pining after her and trying — not so subtly, in my opinion — to steal her away from nick.

Chloe: Okay, well, it’s a bit of a leap. Phyllis and jack have remained close friends over the years.

Sally: Yeah, that’s my point. How? I mean, why does jack give phyllis a free pass when he acts like i don’t deserve a smidge of forgiveness?

Chloe: It’s a mistake to think that you’re entitled to forgiveness when you’ve wronged people. It’s earned. It takes time.

Sally: And you think phyllis has earned it? I doubt it. There’s so obviously a double standard for her, and I wish that I could expose phyllis for the total fake that she is.

Phyllis: Take your best shot. Want your clothes to smell freshly washed

Chloe: Okay. Ladies, ladies, let’s dial it down.

Phyllis: Oh, I’m fine. This is me at a one. I’m at a one right now. While I’m already taking the high road by allowing you in my hotel and taking your money, i will not receive your insults, you got that? And by the way, I am not a fake, I am not a phony. Everyone knows that I’m the real deal, guts and glory, okay?

Sally: Mm-hmm, real good at tooting your own horn.

Phyllis: Okay, I own up to my mistakes. And I celebrate my successes.

Sally: Whoo, toot-toot.

Chloe: Okay, you know what? Why don’t we just —

Phyllis: While you, all you do is hide your head in the sand when you’ve done something really destructive.

Sally: I don’t think you’ve owned up to everything that you should have.

Phyllis: What does that mean, sally?

Sally: I just wonder how nick really feels, how comfortable he is with your friend/more-than-friend relationship with jack.

Phyllis: I will not sit here and listen to this. I will not dignify it with an answer. You got that? My personal life is nobody’s business, least of all yours.

Sally: Seems like I hit a nerve. Maybe nick really isn’t too keen on you and jack getting so cozy. I wonder if he would like to know about a little scene i witnessed between the two of you in tuscany. That’s what I thought.

Abby: At least one of us is sleeping. Is that for me?

Nick: Yeah. I figured you weren’t eating. Thought some of your favorites might tempt you. I’m sure you’re still in shock.

Abby: Yeah. I just — I can’t believe this is happening. But it is, so…

Nick: Yeah. You want to talk about it?

Abby: No, no, I’m sorry, i can’T.

Nick: Yeah, I get it. Probably all talked out. Abby, just know that I’m here, you know, if there’s anything you need.

Abby: Actually, there is something that you can do.

Devon: I really needed that.

Amanda: [ Sighs ] Me, too.

Devon: Now, I want to hear everything about the trial.

Amanda: Um, well, I am feeling a little better about my testimony.

Devon: Yeah?

Amanda: Yeah, now that i spoke with michael. He thinks that it was a success all-in-all.

Devon: I’m sure it was. As difficult as it must have been for you, I have no doubt that you stepped up.

Amanda: It was a strange sensation, being on the witness stand, you know, not being the one asking all of the questions. Then I felt like I prepared, but it was far more emotionally draining than I had expected. It just — I felt my anger, you know, bubbling up every time i looked at sutton. And there was other times when i got so choked up that I didn’t even think I could keep it together.

Michael: To be clear, ms. Sinclair, you are saying that you take no pleasure in testifying against your grandfather. This was the last place that i ever wanted to be, but I had to be here. I had no choice. See, sutton ames puts himself above everyone else, including the law.

Michael: What exactly do you mean?

Amanda: He demanded that his own grandchildren be sent away because they were an embarrassment to him. He had his grandbabies’ father killed because he didn’t want that secret to come out. And then, when he realized that the walls were closing in, he had his own daughter take the fall for him. Having grown up on my own, i can’t describe what it felt like when I discovered that I had a family. It was kind of like this door that had been forever closed was finally opened. I developed a relationship with my mother and my sister, but that would be impossible with sutton. Because he only cares about one person. See, that man has proven time and time again he will do whatever it takes to protect himself, everyone else be damned.

Devon: Please tell me that you’re done and you don’t have to get back up on that witness stand, alright?

Amanda: I am not stepping foot in that courtroom again until the verdict is read. It’s just — it’s too hard being in the same room as sutton. I actually think that imani feels the same way. But I really appreciated her support.

Devon: What about naya?

Amanda: Well, she stayed away, but I’m glad. You know, I think it would’ve been too hard for her, just with everything.

Devon: Yeah.

Amanda: But what about you, you know? How’s everything going at the chancellor house? How is abby?

Devon: Abby’s not good. She’s not good at all.& And after what I saw today, i have a strong feeling that things are just gonna get a hell of a lot worse.

Abby: I need a break from talking about me, so please tell me, how are you doing?

Nick: Um, I’m alright. Kids are good. New hope’s — it’s good.

Abby: You are leaving out a few major things.

Nick: Such as?

Abby: Such as the two weddings that you went to in italy. Yeah, please tell me about the ceremonies.

Nick: Are you sure you want to talk about that?

Abby: Yeah. I am still able to be happy for other people.

Nick: Okay. Summer and kyle’s wedding was small and intimate, but very romantic. Summer was so focused on kyle that as she was walking down the aisle, she forgot her bouquet, so she just ran back and got it and walked again.

Abby: Well, that seems appropriate for summer and kyle.

Nick: Yeah, she owned the moment. It was — it was cute and…kind of perfect.

Abby: Well, I hope they have a very long, happy life together.

Nick: You know, victoria’s wedding was a completely different thing. Total five-star newman event, so…

[ Sighs ] You know what? I’m sure you’d rather do almost anything than listen to my boring storytelling, so why don’t we just get out of here? Let’s get dominic and go for a walk or something. You want to do that?

Abby: Sure. Yeah, why not? Let’s do it.

Amanda: Abby running off and trying to find chance on her own, that would have been disastrous on so many levels.

Devon: Yeah.

Amanda: She’s lucky that she has you and other people who care about her looking out for her.

Devon: Oh, I agree about that, but what worries me is her mood swings, ’cause you can’t predict how she’s gonna be from one moment to the next.

Amanda: Well, isn’t that common for someone who’s grieving?

Devon: Yeah, it is, it is, and you know that I’m very aware of, you know, all those kinds of feelings, and they led me down a very destructive path. I’m not trying to project and say that the same thing’s gonna happen to abby, ’cause I know she’s a different person, but i just see a lot of red flags. And I know that she’s gonna be able to get through this. I just don’t know how long it’s gonna take.

Amanda: You know, whatever it is that you’re thinking, you can tell me, right?

Devon: Of course I do. I don’t think that the chancellor mansion is the best place for dominic right now. He’s clearly being affected by the stress of the house. He’s crying more than he ever has before. His schedules are all off.

Amanda: Okay, devon, I mean, there could be many reasons for that, right?

Devon: No, it all started when abby got the news, so i know that it’s connected. You can see it. Abby starts crying and she can’t stop, dominic will start crying and he can’t stop, and then they just — they create this circle of stress for each other. Which is why I’m thinking that it might be the best thing for dominic to be taken out of that house. But then I don’t know how abby’s gonna react to that, you know, ’cause she’s barely hanging on by a thread herself.

Amanda: Um, yeah, that would be a very difficult conversation.

Devon: I mean, the idea would be just to take dominic until she works through everything, but, you know, you’re right, it is — it’s a tough conversation to have.

Amanda: How can I help?

Devon: Doing what you’re doing, by just being here. Listening to me.

Phyllis: Sally, I have no idea what you’re talking about, but whatever bomb you think you have, it’s a dud, trust me.

Sally: Is it?

Phyllis: Okay, hey, chloe. Can you get your friend out of here before it gets really ugly?

Chloe: Yeah, I think that’s a really good idea.

Phyllis: Cool.

Chloe: Let’s go. Now, sally.

Jack: Oh, no. What happened since I left?

Phyllis: Don’t ask.

Jack: It’s too late. What’s wrong? Achoo!

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Phyllis: Ugh, it’s nothing. Listen, don’t you have a meeting to go to?

Jack: Yeah, I do. He just called to say he’s running late, so I have extra time. You might as well spill. Tell me.

Phyllis: Oh, it’s — I let sally get under my skin.

Jack: Well, I have the perfect remedy for that. Don’T.

Phyllis: Great advice. Thank you. I won’T.

Jack: Advice you’re not willing to take.

Phyllis: Oh. [ Sighs ] Listen, let me ask you something. When we were in italy, were ever in some sort situation that could’ve appeared to somebody else as untoward?

Jack: Untow– I’m not sure what you’re asking me. I remember you and nick were fighting, that you were feeling out of sorts.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Jack: I remember we sat up late pretty late in your room, talking.

Phyllis: Yeah, it was just a comfortable conversation, that’s all.

Jack: Again, I’m not sure what you’re asking me.

Phyllis: It’s just sally said something, and it got me thinking. That’s all.

Jack: Thinking what?

Phyllis: I don’t know, it doesn’t matter. Doesn’t matter, right? Moving on.

Jack: Good. Don’t let sally get to you.

Phyllis: Right.

Jack: She’s not worth it.

Phyllis: I get it. No truer words were spoken. Alright. Good luck at your meeting.

Jack: Thanks. See you later.

Amanda: That was so nice, being here with you and just shutting out the world.

Devon: I know. I wish we could stay in bed all day and never leave.

Amanda: Mm, me, too. But I have a ton of things to do, and I understand more why it’s so important for you to be there for abby and the baby.

Devon: Well, I appreciate you being so supportive of me. But, you know, you didn’t really say that much when I told you my idea.

Amanda: Yeah, that’s, um…

[ Chuckles ] That’s because I don’t think it’s my place.

Devon: Well, I’m asking you, though.

Amanda: Well, I think it’s a very delicate situation, but

[Sighs] I guess I would say keep listening to abby and keep tuning in to how she’s feeling. But I think you’re right. At the end of the day, abby has the tools and the ability to find coping mechanisms to deal with all of this. But dominic doesn’t, so he needs someone to do what’s best for him.

Devon: Oh, I agree with you completely. I just — I don’t know if i should pull the trigger.

Amanda: Yeah, I don’t know about that either. But I know you’ll figure it out. You’ll follow your heart.

Devon: I know that I love you. I’ll check in with you later, okay?

Amanda: Okay.

Devon: Have a good day.

Amanda: Yeah, you, too.

Devon: Bye.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Nick: I really thought dominic would like the playground and the park and the pond. And my nephew doesn’t know it yet, but this is gonna be one of his favorite places in town.

Abby: Chance proposed to me right here. Yeah, in this park.

Nick: Hey, ab, why don’t we — why don’t we go somewhere else?

Abby: No, no. This is exactly where I want to be. Close to those memories.

[ Sighs ] Chance got down on one knee and he proposed and he talked about the child that we would share one day. And he promised to love me forever. And he said our future would be filled with hope and possibility.

[ Dominic fussing, crying ]

[ Dominic fussing ]

Nick: Hey, dominic’S… ab?

Abby: What?

Nick: Come here, little man. Oh, I know, I know, I know. You’re alright. Come on, everything’s gonna be okay.

Michael: Sally.

Sally: Michael.

Michael: Lauren and I are still gonna see you, kevin, and the kids for dinner tonight?

Chloe: Yeah, I can’t wait. And since I’m still on my apology tour with lauren, I was thinking of getting some dessert from that pie shop that she loves.

Michael: Smart move. Mwah. See you later.

Chloe: Bye.

Sally: Are you kidding me? Lauren was just as pissed at you as she was with me over victoria’s wedding dress, and now here you are, invited to dinner, making nice over pie, while I’m still over here in siberia.

Chloe: I thought you hoped i would patch things up with lauren.

Sally: Well, yeah, I did and I do, and I’m very happy for you. I was just hoping that I could do the same, but, no, it’s just another example of how I’m never on the receiving end of forgiveness.

Chloe: You know, I’ve really had it with this self-pity. Give it a rest.

Jack: [ Sighs ] I have no doubt that you and nick will work through this.

Phyllis: Well, we’ll see if that’s true.

Jack: See? There you go, underestimating yourself again.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ]

Jack: The new phyllis can handle this.

Phyllis: I hope so! Thank you.

Jack: I’m rooting for both of you. Well, especially you. Always. Maybe the reason I didn’t move on with my romantic life was… ’cause I already was with the most amazing woman I’ve ever known. Maybe you set the bar too high, red.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Listen, I don’t — I don’t think you should say things that you might not mean.

Jack: I’m not saying this because I’ve had too much to drink. I’m saying it because it’s true. I have never stopped loving you. And I don’t think I ever will.

Phyllis: I love you, too. That’s never gonna change.

Jack: Well, thank you. It’s — it’s not the same thing, but I appreciate the sentiment.

Phyllis: It is the same thing. I really love you. You’ll always be in my heart… permanently in my heart. So just keep that knowledge with you.

Phyllis: Hey, thanks for coming by.

Amanda: Well, you said you needed a friend, so here I am.

Phyllis: Thanks. I do need a friend. Hey, but let’s talk about you, your court appearance today. How did that go?

Amanda: It went as well as can be expected, I guess.

Phyllis: Good. Well, I’m sure that your testimony will convince the jury that they need to nail this guy to the wall.

Amanda: Mm, thank you. I hope so. But I will not know for sure until the foreman rises and announces the verdict, so I will be counting the seconds until then. But I’ve been wrapped up in that all day, so can we please, please just — let’s talk about you.

Phyllis: Oh, okay.

Amanda: Yes.

Phyllis: Um, hey, you know — you know when you have a thought and it just sort of doesn’t go away and it’s just been buzzing around in my head, so i just want to talk to you about it.

Amanda: No, I hate when that happens.

Phyllis: Yeah, so —

Amanda: What’s the thought?

Phyllis: Yeah, you know, I’m just — I’M…

[ Groans ] I’m just thinking that my friendship with jack has precluded me from really, um… opening up and making things work with nick.

Amanda: Really?

Phyllis: I mean, not always, but lately, when nick and I have hit some rough patches, um, I go to jack for advice.

Amanda: Well, why would a friendship affect a love story?

Phyllis: Well, I didn’t think it would, but…nick made accusations.

Amanda: About what?

Phyllis: He said he saw more going on than what meets the eye.

Amanda: Well, was there?

Phyllis: Yeah. But not in the way that you think. As someone who resembles someone else,

Chloe: First of all, lauren and I are family, and we have been for a long time. And that alone makes our relationship different than the one she has with you.

Sally: Yeah, okay.

Chloe: Listen, I’ve been where you are now — on the outside, looking in. And trust me, I have run the gamut when it comes to causing trouble, from small schemes to admittedly disturbed vengeful behavior, and I made the decision to stop. And I did. And that is the key.

Sally: So have I. That whole business with victoria’s wedding dress, it was all for a good cause.

Chloe: My advice — focus on the good things you have in your life and what you stand to lose if you don’t change. And quit complaining. And stop blaming others for the situation that you got yourself into. Just let it go already.

Sally: I hear you. You’re right.

Phyllis: This is kind of hard to describe, but I’m gonna give it a shot. So — so there’s this barrier between me and nick, and, um… I just couldn’t get through it. And I think that’s why I turned to jack for advice when I was struggling with nick.

Amanda: Because you couldn’t fully trust yourself to be open with nick the way that you are with jack.

Phyllis: I mean, I never thought of it that way.

Amanda: Yeah, but just… I think that’s totally normal. You know, it’s — it’s easier to open up to a friend as opposed to a lover, right? You have less fear of judgment, less worry that you’re gonna make them angry or hurt their feelings.

Phyllis: Yeah. Yeah, yeah. And I really value jack’s advice.

Amanda: Yeah, and I can tell how close the two of you are.

Phyllis: He’s such a good man. He really is. I mean, he really supports my relationship with nick, and he has every reason not to.

Amanda: Um…you know, you never really told me the details about the dynamic between the three of you.

Phyllis: Oh, really?

Amanda: Yeah.

Phyllis: Um…okay. Well, I was with jack, and i cheated on him with nick. You know… yeah, you know, hey, listen, I’m not a saint.

Amanda: No, no, I’m not judging.

Phyllis: Okay.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] I’m just wondering, how long ago was this?

Phyllis: It was a while ago. Then I got pregnant with summer and I didn’t know if — if she was jack’s baby or — or nick’s, so, yeah.

Amanda: Wow. Well, that gives me a whole new perspective. I don’t know all of the missing details, but, objectively, i would say that you have a deep connection with jack. You know, and he’s been a huge part of your life all of these years. And you’ve told me how much you still care about each other, despite your rocky past. So, phyllis, have you considered the possibility that jack is more than a friend to you? So maybe you’ve never fully gotten over him.

Devon: Hey, guys.

Abby: Oh, devon, hi.

Devon: Hey, I just came by to check on you, make sure you’re doing alright. The nanny told me you guys went for a walk.

Nick: Yeah, thought some fresh air would do us all some good.

Devon: Nice.

Abby: Yeah, we just got home just in time, ’cause this little guy needs a change, so I’ll be right back.

Devon: Okay. How’s she been doing?

Nick: I see why you’re concerned. I am, too.

Devon: Why, did something happen at the park?

Nick: You know, she seems better now, but she’s just not herself. I mean, at the park, she got so preoccupied talking about chance that she didn’t even hear dominic crying.

Sharon: Hey, I’m glad I ran into you. I was actually planning on reaching out and apologizing for the way I acted last time I saw you. I was not upset with you. Billy’s latest wild accusation against Adam is just so frustrating, but I never
should demanded that you reel him in.

Lily: Yeah, I don’t really know how to take this half-apology when it seems like you’re still blaming Billy. And to be honest with you, i don’t think his accusations are that wild.

Sharon: I hope that Billy hasn’t sucked you in to his never-ending vendetta against Adam.

Lily: Billy hasn’t sucked me into anything. I actually just came from seeing your ex, and I can tell you that he’s the one with the vendetta who needs to be seriously reined in.

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

Billy: I think that you should talk to Victor and Ashland before you do something stupid.

Adam: Why? So they can laugh in your face, too, Billy?

Billy: Adam, I’m not laughing, and this is not a joke.

Adam: You know, you had a chance to reveal everything when you actually had the evidence in Tuscany, but insteadyou wisely chose to restrain yourself. And you even deleted the video you had on your phone. But make no mistake
Victor and I — we got a hard copy of that letter. And we destroyed it, Billy.

Billy: What you destroyed was an authentic-looking copy of the letter.

Adam: Mm-hmm. Yeah, right.

Billy: I have the original letter. And I have Jesse Gaines in the flesh, and if you think he was pissed at Ashland before, you should see him now after the way he was manhandled in Tuscany

Lily: I didn’t know it was casual day.

Billy: I won’t be going into the office until later. I’m gonna go to the motel and check on our guest.

Lily: You mean your guest, not ours. I want nothing to do with Gaines

Billy: Lily…

Lily: No, if you think I’ve changed my mind about your little plan, then you can think again.

Billy: Can we talk about this, please? I think it’s important that we’re on the same page.

Lily: There’s nothing to talk about. If you’re gonna move forward with blackmailing Newman Media, then I want no part
of that.

[ Door closes ] Some people have joint pain,

Mariah: Oh. I know that look. I’ve had that look on my face a lot lately.

Noah: Yeah? What look is that?

Mariah: The one where you don’t want to lie, but you also don’t want to bare your soul about what’s going on.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Nick: Hey.

Phyllis: Hey.

Nick: It’s, uh, good to see you.

Phyllis: It’s good to see you. How are you?

Nick: I’m good. You?

Phyllis: I’m good. Nick, um…

Nick: [ Sighs ] Yeah?

Phyllis: Uh…I owe summer a call, and I — I just wanted to know… I mean, did you want to tell her about us or…

Nick: Uh…yeah. Uh… I guess you can handle it. Or I can. Either way, our daughter needs to know that her parents aren’t together anymore.

Sharon: Lily.

Lily: Hi.

Sharon: Hey, I’m glad I ran into you. I was actually planning on reaching out an apologizing for the way I acted last time I saw you. I was not upset with you. Billy’s latest wild accusation against adam is just so frustrating, but I never should demanded that you reel him in.

Lily: Yeah, I don’t really know how to take this half-apology when it seems like you’re still blaming billy. And to be honest with you, i don’t think his accusations are that wild.

Sharon: I hope that billy hasn’t sucked you in to his never-ending vendetta against adam.

Lily: Billy hasn’t sucked me in to any thing. I actually just came from seeing your ex, and I can tell you that he’s the one with the vendetta who needs to be seriously reined in.

Adam: So, you say you want to bring me, my father, and ashland down? Well, you better back up and tell me what this so-called threat’s all about. Exactly what evidence do you have?

Billy: I’ve got the original letter from camilla rhodes’ will proving that ashland stole his mentor’s fortune, the same fortune that he built his empire with, the same empire that spawned this company that we’re standing in right now. And wouldn’t it be a shame to see that all come crumbling to the ground?

Nikki: Adam said he had no idea that their little attack plan was putting stress on ashland.

Victoria: Well, I’m sure that’s how ashland prefers it.

Nikki: Yeah, well, he said it was just business and they had no intentions of hurt ashland or my grandchildren, by the way. I mean, the reality is that they have no idea if it’s going to hurt them or not.

Victoria: Well, I don’t know all of the details, but ashland has assured me that the children will not be affected.

Nikki: [ Sighs ]

Victor: [ Exhales sharply ]

Nikki: How is abby doing?

Victor: Not well. Seems that abby is teetering between acceptance and denial, you know? And she’s determined to do something very risky.

Abby: Mariah, that is very generous of you to offer to watch dominic while I search for chance, but it’s — it’s not necessary.

Mariah: I’m happy to do it. I mean, he needs somebody that he’s comfortable with, and I can move back in here and take care of him.

Abby: No, please. You don’t have to worry about dominic. There are plenty of people who can help watch him while I’m gone.

Nina: Just — no plans have been nailed down yet, so…

Abby: But my plans haven’t changed. I don’t care what anyone says. I am going to look for chance. And if no one will go with me, I will go by myself. At least mariah’s on my side.

Devon: Abby, this isn’t about sides, okay? We all hope that chance is alive, alright? This is about life and death and you doing something stupid. We’re not gonna let dominic risk losing his mother, too. Your heart is at the heart of everything you do.

Adam: Um, I’m still not seeing the danger here, billy. You really think you can prove some alleged crime from the last century? Have you not heard of the statute of limitations?

Billy: I am very aware of the statute. And, yes, maybe ashland can’t be criminally prosecuted at this point. The simple revelation of this story is enough to cause damage — you know that — not only to ashland’s reputation, but to newman media’s, as well.

Adam: Okay. We’ve rebranded. And ashland’s not involved in the direct day-to-day operations of our company.

Billy: But newman media is built on lies. Who’s gonna trust a media outlet like that? Not to mention the civil suits. We haven’t even talked about the personal hell that’s gonna rain down on ashland’s life. Lining his pockets with stolen charity money?

Adam: Wow, you seem very pleased with the damage you could do with this so-called evidence.

Billy: Honestly, adam, I’m a little bit concerned for you. And I’m gonna be generous. I’m gonna take it easy. We have one of our best reporters crafting the story as we speak. But I won’t publish it if…

Adam: If?

Billy: …You, victor, and ashland cease all operations of attacking chanccomm. It’s as simple as that.

Adam: [ Sighs ] No. You know, what I think is simple is your thought process. Believing that you’d come here with this threat — it’s nothing more than a sad bluff from a desperate man.

Victor: Devon texted me earlier saying that abby woke up with the intention of flying to the site of the explosion to look for traces of chance, you know?

Nikki: Oh, my god. Poor abby.

Victoria: Does she really think that she thinks she can find him when none of the authorities have been able to?

Victor: Yeah. I’m gonna go over there again as soon as I can.

Nikki: Darling, you need to get some rest. This is wearing you out. At least take a break before you go back there. Isn’t ashley there with her?

Victor: Yeah, but she’s exhausted, as well. She needs the sleep.

Nikki: Well, devon and nina are there.

Victoria: And I’m on my way to see her now before leaving for peru.

Victor: Oh, I forgot about that. That’s a very important trip, you know, for both of you. Say hello to ashland, okay?

Victoria: Thank you, dad. We really appreciate your support.

Victor: By the way, when you do see your sister, please tell her what a foolish undertaking it is to go to the site of the explosion.

Victoria: Okay. I will. I’ll do my best.

Victor: Please do.

Phyllis: Well, I’ll — I’ll call summer, and I’ll tell her what’s going on with us. Unless…you want to give her other news?Nick: What other news? What are you talking about?

Phyllis: Have you heard about chance?

Nick: No. What’s going on with him?

Phyllis: Um, they think that, um, he may have been killed in the line of duty.

Nick: [ Exhales heavily ]

Phyllis: So, uh, anyway, i thought — I thought you heard. I’m sorry.

Devon: Alright, you know what? Can we just take a breath and let’s think this through together, abby? Can we do that?

Abby: I have thought this through. I have thought this through! In fact, I was gonna ask you if you’d be willing to watch dominic while I’m gone. But you know what? It’s fine if you’re not willing to do that. My son will not be put in danger. I have plenty of friends and family that are willing to watch him.

Mariah: Yes, you do.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Devon: Abby, you know that i would do anything in the world to protect that little boy, alright? You have to do the same thing, though. Do you not see how flying off to look for chance is not in his best interest at all?

Abby: I am so tired of arguing and wasting precious time.

Devon: That’s just the thing, abby. We’re trying to explain to you that we’re not wasting any time ’cause the state department is looking for chance right now as we speak, okay? You have to trust that they know what they’re doing.

Nina: Abby, you know I had questions, too, but christine persuaded me. We have to let them handle this.

Abby: I am so sick of listening to the state department. They’re the one who sent chance into that dangerous situation in the first place. Hi, my name is sam davis and I’m 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. Don’t settle for products that give you a sort-of white smile.

Phyllis: So, that’s all i know about chance. Honestly, I didn’t know if you heard and you just weren’t saying anything to me because of what was going on between us.

Nick: [ Sighs ] I was kept out of the loop.

Phyllis: Well, I can understand why abby would keep it close to her. She’s waiting for confirmation, I’m sure. I don’t get why nobody in your family let you know what was going on with your sister, but, hey, I’m not gonna touch that one.

Nick: That’s not what matters right now.

Phyllis: Yeah, what matters is abby. I can’t imagine what’s she’s going through.

Nick: I mean, she never got to introduce her husband to their baby. That’s devastating.

Phyllis: I’m so sorry to be the one to tell you. Hey, do you need to talk? I’m here for you if you need to talk.

Nick: [ Sighs ] I got to go.

Jack: Hey, nick. Everything o–

[ Glass clinks ] Hey.

Phyllis: Hey.

Jack: That seemed pretty intense.

Phyllis: Oh.

Jack: You okay?

Phyllis: I’m alright. Nick couldn’t get away from me fast enough. Well, that’s confirmation it’s definitely over.

Mariah: Abby, I understand where you’re coming from and why you feel the need to go. And I’m not pushing things, but I have no problem moving back in here for dominic’s sake.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Nina: Hi.

Victoria: Hi, nina. I’m so sorry.

Nina: Thank you. Come on in.

Victoria: Thank you.

[ Door closes ] Come here.

[ Sighs ] I’m so deeply sorry what you’re going through right now. It’s horrible. I can’t even find the words. Tell me what I can do.

Abby: Um…guys, can I just have a minute alone with my sister, please?

Nina: Yeah, sure. Just let us know if you need anything.

Abby: I am so glad that you’re here because there is something important that you can do for me.

Victoria: Of course. Name it.

Abby: Let me use the jet. My bags are packed, and I need to go right now.

Billy: I think that you should talk to victor and ashland before you do something stupid.

Adam: Why? So they can laugh in your face, too, billy?

Billy: Adam, I’m not laughing, and this is not a joke.

Adam: You know, you had a chance to reveal everything when you actually had the evidence in tuscany, but instead you wisely chose to restrain yourself. And you even deleted the video you had on your phone. But make no mistake. Victor and I — we got a hard copy of that letter. And we destroyed it, billy.

Billy: What you destroyed was an authentic-looking copy of the letter.

Adam: Mm-hmm. Yeah, right.

Billy: I have the original letter. And I have jesse gaines in the flesh, and if you think he was pissed as ashland before, you should see him now after the way he was manhandled in tuscany.

Adam: What is it gonna take for you to get that I’m not buying your story? And neither will victor, okay? Jesse gaines — he’s on a beach somewhere. He’s counting his money and his blessings. And you know what? I suggest you do the same before chanccomm ends up a worthless shell, man.

Billy: If jesse gaines is sitting on the beach counting his money, how do you think i know that he was locked in a wine cellar of a tuscan farmhouse? And just so you know, I can make good on every threat that I’ve uttered here today. So, unless you want to risk upsetting daddy and watching your company being trashed all over the internet, I suggest you make the right choice. You have until 6:00 P.M. Tonight, or this story goes wide.

[ Door opens ] My skin but better. Everyone wants it…

Sharon: Hey. This is a nice surprise.

Nick: Nice to see you.

Sharon: So, at the end of our last chat, you said you were gonna grab some quiet alone time. Was the productive?

Nick: Um, yeah, I think it helped me accept that my relationship with phyllis is over, and I think phyllis accepts it, too.

Sharon: Ohh. Nick, I’m sorry.

Nick: We just need to face the facts. You know, this time it didn’t end any differently than it has any other time. I accept a lot of the blame for that. I should have been more cautious and understood that the relationship could end like this. I feel really bad for phyllis. It seems like she’s really hurting.

Sharon: And you?

Nick: I’m alright. Um…it’s not easy, but I’m determined to not wallow in heartbreak.

Sharon: Good. Because you shouldn’T.

Jack: After what just happened with nick, if you need some time alone, I get it. But if you could use a friend, I’m happy to join you.

Phyllis: I could use a friend, definitely, as long as we don’t talk about nick or the break-up or anything like that. Let’s focus on positive things.

Jack: Okay.

Phyllis: Okay.

Jack: Okay. Shoot.

Phyllis: Um, well, the grand phoenix — you know, we’re doing so well. We’re going to expand.

Jack: Interesting. What does a bigger and better grand phoenix look like?

Phyllis: Well, I’ll tell you. Um, the rooftop pool — I’m thinking of putting, um….

[Voice breaking] A new deck in…

Jack: Phyllis —

Phyllis: …With a juice bar.

Jack: Phyllis, stop. You don’t have to do this. It’s me. Look, even if we don’t talk about nick, you can be miserable around me. I think our friendship can handle that.

Phyllis: I know, and you’re my friend! You’re my friend, and it’s okay that you’re my friend. I know that. Oh, we were doomed from the start, nick and I.

Jack: Wait, wait, wait. I wouldn’t say that.

Phyllis: Oh, yes! I had my reservations, but I let nick talk me into it, and i believed it was worth a try. But I should have followed my instinct. I should have followed my gut. I knew. I knew, and I fell into this trap again.

Devon: I’m very concerned about abby’s state of mind. And we need to figure out a way to keep her from going on this trip.

Nina: I’m not sure what else we can say to persuade her not to go.

Mariah: Poor dominic. He’s probably absorbing all of this tension. I’m gonna go check on him.

Nina: Wait, mariah, no. I just got him to sleep, and his schedule has been off the last few days. I don’t want to risk waking him, okay? But believe me — he’s alright. There’s no reason to worry.

Mariah: Yeah, of course. Um, you know, I’m gonna go take care of some things in case i need to come back here. So just text me if you need me.

Devon: Of course.

Nina: Okay.

Mariah: Alright. Bye, guys.

Devon: See you.

Nina: I don’t think it’s a very good idea for mariah to move back in here, given, you know, her attachment to the baby.

Devon: Yeah, no, I think it would be a horrible idea if she did that. It wouldn’t help anybody.

[ Dominic crying ]

Nina: [ Sighs ] I know that cry. It’s just fussiness, but… it just breaks my heart to think about what the poor child’s lost.

Abby: I know if I go to the explosion site I can find out what actually happened to chance.

Victoria: I’m sorry. I mean, I understand the impulse of needing to do something, but don’t you think it makes more sense to leave it to the experts?

Abby: No, the experts have failed. And the — the more time that goes by, the trail — it’s just gonna get cold.

Victoria: But this is a very volatile situation. How do you know that the people in spain are gonna agree to talk to you about any of this?

Abby: Look…chance could be out there. He could be hiding. He — he could be hurt somewhere. And I know that I am the only one with the sheer force necessary to find him. So, are you gonna let me use the jet or not?

Victoria: I’m sorry, abby. I just — I don’t think it’s a great idea.

Abby: Fine. Fine. I’ll call dad. He’ll let me use the jet.

Victoria: Our father doesn’t think it’s a good idea, either.

Abby: Why are you all ganging up on me? Why are you all fighting me on this? Them I can understand, but you — you are my sister. You’re supposed to be on my side.

Victoria: I am on your side. That’s why I’m saying no.

Abby: You of all people. You should understand how important this is for me because you’re also looking the& death of your husband in the face.

When you have nausea,

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Abby: I know that you’re fighting to keep ashland alive, no matter the cost, the risks of the treatment. It doesn’t matter. You’re doing whatever you can to save his life. And that’s what I’m trying to do for chance. I just want to fight for him. Why — why shouldn’t I? Why wouldn’t I?

Victoria: Because, abby, maybe in your heart — maybe — maybe you know there’s nothing to fight for.

Abby: No.

Victoria: Look, I know you don’t want to hear this. I know that. And I don’t want to say it, but it has to be said. Going there to try to figure out what happened — I mean, it’s just going to compound the hurt. And you’ve already had enough of that, don’t you think?

Abby: [ Crying ] That’s why i want to go there — to end the pain.

Victoria: This day is coming for me, too. When I lose my husband… when I lose ashland, I know what I’m gonna need and what I’m gonna want, and that’s to have my family around me to support me and to hold me up no matter what. So home is where you need to be right now, so that you can lean on us and so that we can just — we can wrap you up in our arms.

Abby: [ Sniffling ]

Mariah: So, abby is determined to find out what happened to chance firsthand.

Tessa: Oh, my heart is just breaking for her.

Mariah: I know. Me too. For abby and for dominic. I’m worried about him.

Tessa: Oh, well, why? I mean, you know he’s gonna get taken care of.

Mariah: Well, maybe he could be taken care of by me.

Tessa: What do you mean?

Mariah: I offered to move back in if abby goes to look for chance.

Tessa: Mariah, do you think that’s a good idea?

Devon: It’s just, the more erratic abby becomes, the more worried I am because it’s like she’s spiraling out of control.

Nina: I know. I’m worried about her, too. These massive mood swings — they’re concerning.

Devon: I just don’t get how she went from what I thought was accepting the truth to wanting to leave her child behind and fly out to prove that chance is alive.

Nina: Well, I’m not gonna lie. I know how she feels. It’s everything I’ve got not to jump on an overseas flight. I’d love to just hold him in my arms again, you know, and look in his eyes and…tell him that his mother loves him and that we’re gonna be okay.

Devon: I know. To know that you will never be able to see somebody that you love again is the worst feeling in the world.

Nina: There’s just so much left undone, you know? I want to tell him that the son that he and abby dreamed of is here and he’s beautiful and perfect and deeply loved. But I can’T.

[ Voice breaking ] And it weighs on my heart. And it’s so sad. It’s just… losing a child is so unfair.

Devon: When somebody dies before their time, it’s unfair to everyone that loves them.

Nina: Oh, devon, I’m so sorry.

Devon: Why?

Nina: You’ve lost so much in your life — a wife and a baby that you never even got to meet. I — I know you understand.

Devon: I certainly do. But, you know, what I went through in my experiences doesn’t compare to being left a single parent with a little baby to raise.

Nina: It’s just so tragic. And I know it was a mistake to even consider going with abby. But at the moment, it seemed like the right thing to do, like the only thing to do, and I know that’s how she feels, the imperative to bring her husband back, to bring back the father of her child. Just all these months of waiting, and this is how it ends? Well, no wonder she’s bouncing around the stages of grief, the denial, the anger, the bargaining, back to denial. But it’s real. Chance’s death is real.

[ Gasps ] Oh, god.

[ Sighs ]

Lily: Hey. How’d it go with adam?

Billy: Well, his first response was to call my bluff.

Lily: Well, that’s not surprising. Did you think he would cave that easily?

Billy: No, probably not. But I had to make sure that he knew that I have him in a no-win situation. I had to ratchet it up a little bit, so I put him on a deadline — 6:00 P.M. Tonight.

Adam: Dad, I finally reached you.

Victor: Sorry, son. I’ve been with your sister.

Adam: I know. Um, how’s abby doing?

Victor: Unfortunately, not well. So, how’s our project going, by the way?

Adam: Billy showed up here, true to form. He acted as expected.

Victor: Okay. Well, let’s discuss that in person, alright?

Adam: Oh, and, um, nikki came by earlier.

Victor: Oh, she did?

Adam: She is worried that our plan might be too taxing on ashland.

Victor: I see. Um…I’ll deal with that. Talk to you later. So, my baby, I understand you went to see adam, expressing your reservations about the project he and I are working on?

Nikki: Yes, I did. I didn’t want to bother you while you were so upset about abby. I was just concerned about ashland. I don’t think that he needs any additional stress right now with his illness.

Victor: I understand your concern. But rest assured that we will finish the project without ashland’s support, okay? But there’s no way anyone or anything will stop us from pursuing it.

Phyllis: My relationship with nick was a big trap. It was a big trap. I knew it wasn’t gonna work, but he convinced me it was.

[ Exhales heavily ] It’s that family of his. He’ll never change because his family will not allow him to change. That’s the truth. I can’t take it. They have secrets from him, and you know victor. He just twists things around, and then nick just goes running back to mom and dad, like he always has done, like he always will do. You know this. You know this better than anyone. I can’t take that viper’s nest of a family that he has. But it’s their loss, you know? It’s their loss and it’s nick’s loss because the newmans — you know this — they eat their own.

[ Sighs ] I broke my own rule about talking about nick.

Jack: Oh, I wouldn’t — i wouldn’t say you broke it. You maybe smashed it to smithereens.

[ Chuckles ]

Phyllis: You’re laughing. You should be afraid.

Jack: Oh, I think we’re past that. I know how hard you love. I know you love to win. Losing connection with nick at the same time as…somehow feeling that you failed is not a good combination for you.

Phyllis: I failed.

[ Scoffs ] I’m a failure. It was a break-up.

Jack: It was a break-up. We broke up. And I would never in a million years say we shouldn’t have tried. This is life. This happens. We find someone. We fall in love. We have good days. We have terrible days. We spend day and night together, and sometimes — not always — it ends. And we pull apart, and it hurts. And we feel regret and misery and —

Phyllis: Listen. This is a pep talk. I’m — so, I mean, honestly, I’m about to crawl into a dark hole.

Jack: Hold on. I’m not finished.

Sharon: So, what can I get for you? Coffee?

Nick: Actually, I came by for some of those little mini cinnamon cakes. I, uh, am gonna go see abby. I know those are her favorite. You know, don’t you? Who told you?

Sharon: Mariah called. Actually, at her request, I went and spent some time with abby to try and help her cope.

Nick: How’s she doing?

Sharon: It’s a very difficult time for her.

Nick: I just hope abby understands why I haven’t been by to see her. Nobody in my family bothered to tell me about this. It’s just another example of my father controlling the narrative. You know, I’m not gonna — I’m not gonna do this. I’m not gonna make this about him. I’m just gonna do everything i can to help abby through this. I really appreciate you going by to see her.

Sharon: Grief can be so tricky. It’s difficult for anyone to navigate.

[ Dominic crying ]

Abby: Oh. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. It’s okay. It’s okay. Come to mama. It’s okay, baby boy. Okay. Mommy’s here.

[ Sniffles ] Mommy’s here. It’s okay. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. It’s alright. It’s alright. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh.

[ Sniffles ] Got him?

Nina: Yeah. Okay. Oh, my goodness. Okay. Okay. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. Oh, dear.

Abby: [ Sobbing ] We do it every night.

Mariah: I would just be moving back in with the baby because it’s an emergency situation.

Tessa: Look, I totally understand the circumstances, but…you’re still getting over your own trauma.

Mariah: You don’t think I’ve made any progress?

Tessa: Yes, I do. But that’s my point. I would hate to see all this forward motion just totally wiped out. I think it’s a little soon for you to take on full-time care of dominic.

Mariah: Just when I think that we’re in sync again, you say something like that.

Tessa: Look, I — I don’t want to fight about this, but let’s please — let’s please not go back there.

Mariah: I just want to make sure that he’s okay.

[ Dominic crying ]

Devon: Hey. What happened?

Victoria: Well, I actually think I was able to talk abby out of making the trip. But she’s furious with me.

Devon: Well, I hope that you did ’cause I don’t know what else we can say to her. She’s entitled to have mood swings, but it’s a problem when it’s around the baby like this.

Victoria: Well, I won’t disagree with you on that, but it looks like abby has a long way to go before she recovers from this.

Abby: [ Sobbing ]

Phyllis: I certainly hope this inspirational talk gets a lot brighter soon, please.

Jack: All I’m trying to say is, despite the pain and the regret, this was not a mistake, not the trying, not the loving, and not the breaking up.

Phyllis: I was a failure. Please. A complete and utter failure. Come on.

Jack: It’s an ending. That’s all it is. It’s not an indictment of you or nick or what you two shared. Don’t ask me how I know this, but I know it for a fact. Love with someone… who wants the best for you… is never a mistake. Eventually, it brings you more than it costs you.

Phyllis: So, to be clear, falling for nick again — that doesn’t make me a failure?

Jack: No. Not at all.

Phyllis: And I’m not an idiot?

Jack: You are anything but an idiot.

Phyllis: And I’m older and wiser, right? Older.

[ Chuckles ] So it’s not gonna be that hard this time?

Jack: You will be happy again, red. That I promise you.

Phyllis: Alright, then.

Jack: Alright, then.

Phyllis: Clink.

Nick: Uh, I appreciate your concern, uh, but if you’re implying that I’m grief-stricken over my relationship with phyllis, that is not the case. Uh, if anything, I just feel a little foolish, kind of like i mistook chemistry for something more permanent.

Sharon: Well, I wouldn’t beat yourself up about that. The two are easily confused.

Nick: Well, thank you.

Sharon: For what? These?

Nick: Uh, no, but also for these. Uh, just for not going the, you know, “I told you so” route with phyllis, at least not to my face.

Sharon: [ Chuckles ] I hope you don’t think I’m feeling smug about your break-up.

Nick: Nah. I know that’s not your style.

Sharon: And who knows? Maybe not being around phyllis’ unfortunate animosity towards your family will help you get back on track with them.

Nick: Yeah, I don’t know. I mean, I’d like that, but with everything my father’s up to right now, I don’t see it getting any better.

Adam: Dad.

Victor: Hi, son.

Adam: How you doing?

Victor: Uh… concerned about abby.

Adam: Well, I can certainly understand that, but I can see that losing chance has gotten to you, too. Is there anything that I can do to help?

Victor: Well, now, his loss must have affected you, as well. You once were friends, right?

Adam: Yeah, we always had each other’s backs when it counted.

Victor: Yeah.

Adam: I saved his life in vegas, and then, um, he took a bullet for me here. I always thought the guy was indestructible.

Victor: All I can tell you is that whoever is responsible for his death — they’re gonna pay.

Adam: Well, count me in. But, uh, while your fleet of investigators take on that job, we have some pressing business to finish here at home.

Victor: Yeah. We’re gonna take care of billy boy.

Lily: So, what do you think will happen next?

Billy: I would like nothing more than that phone to ring and that sob to surrender and admit defeat.

Lily: You think that’s a possibility?

Billy: I wouldn’t bet on it. And you know what that means coming from me. Either way, the time is ticking, and things are about to get very interesting.

Nina: Hi, devon.

Devon: Hey.

Nina: Come on in.

Devon: Thank you.

Nina: I’m so glad that you’re here.

Devon: Of course. I just wanted to check on you guys. Were you able to get any sleep at all?

Nina: Yeah, off and on.

Devon: Yeah.

Nina: You know, it’s been real quiet, so that was nice. Abby’s still in her room. I think she finally got some rest.

Devon: Good.

Nina: And ashley and victor stayed over, so…

Devon: Oh, nice, nice. Is there any news about chance?

Nina: Cricket is on the phone with a contact from the state department.

Christine: I understand, and I appreciate it. I — yeah, just keep me informed, will you? I’ll be at this number all day. Okay. Thanks. Hi, devon.

Devon: Hey. Morning, christine.

Nina: So, any news about my son?

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Abby: Hello, everyone! Ooh, good. Someone made coffee.

Devon: How you doing, abby?

Abby: Mmm! I am gonna grab a cup of this. Mm-mm-mmm. And I have a few things to get done. First I need to book the newman jet, and if that’s already spoken for, I’ll fly commercial.

Nina: Whoa, wait a minute. What are you talking about? Fly where?

Abby: Well, I intend to figure out what happened to my husband, why he hasn’t contacted me. Is [Chuckles] That a problem?

Christine: Abby, I don’t mean to be blunt, but that is the worst thing you could do.

Abby: Well, the state department hasn’t contacted me telling me that they found him or his body, unless there’s some information that you haven’t told me yet.

Christine: The spanish authorities are still working through the rubble, along with our people from the state department. I know there’s no official word on chance, but that doesn’t mean you go off —

Abby: It means that maybe chance wasn’t in that building when the bomb went off. Maybe he’s hurt. Maybe he’s hiding. Look, now that I know where that safe house is, I’m gonna fly to spain, and I’m gonna piece together what became of my husband.

Christine: [ Sighs ]

Nikki: So, when do you and ashland leave for peru?

Victoria: We’re shooting for this afternoon. The pilot’s on standby, but it just feels like there’s so much going on all at once.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] Your father’s still at your sister’S. He spent the night there.

Victoria: I’m still in shock over the news, mom. My heart just goes out for poor abby.

Nikki: It’s terrible. Victor is so concerned.

Victoria: You know, I spoke with her on the phone first thing this morning, and I’m gonna stop by there. I’m gonna see how she’s doing before we leave for the airport.

Nikki: I know she’ll appreciate that. But you must be overwhelmed, too. How is ashland doing?

Victoria: He’s very determined to get into this experimental treatment program, although we’ve only gotten as far as the initial evaluation, but it’s just — [ Sighs ] There’s so much riding on this.

Nikki: I know.

Victoria: But for now, we are going to remain positive.

Nikki: Well, your father and I are praying that they’ll accept ashland into the program and it’s the answer that you’ve been looking for. But, darling, is there anything else on your mind?

Victoria: You know, dad and adam are going after billy and chanccomm. I don’t know any of the details, and I really don’t want to.

Nikki: I thought you were on board, in theory.

Victoria: I was. It’s just that I didn’t know that it would cause so much stress for ashland.

Nikki: I didn’t realize he was involved.

Victoria: Well, he’s insisted on being kept in the loop. And now he’s angry at billy all over again for dragging gaines to tuscany to try to ruin our wedding. With everything that we’re facing right now, this is just beyond counterproductive.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] I am so sorry to hear this.

Victoria: It’s just the last place that he should be putting his energy right now.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] It’s a terrible situation for you — your father versus the father of your children. I know you would never say this…

Victoria: But?

Nikki: Billy’s done it to himself.

Lily: I didn’t know it was casual day.

Billy: I won’t be going into the office until later. I’m gonna go to the motel and check on our guest.

Lily: You mean your guest, not ours. I want nothing to do with gaines.

Billy: Lily…

Lily: No, if you think I’ve changed my mind about your little plan, then you can think again.

Billy: Can we talk about this, please? I think it’s important that we’re on the same page.

Lily: There’s nothing to talk about. If you’re gonna move forward with blackmailing newman media, then I want no part of that.

[ Door closes ] Some people have joint pain,

Mariah: Thank you for being my running buddy.

Noah: Felt good to get out.

Mariah: Yeah, I’ve kind of missed running.

Noah: Why haven’t you been working out lately?

Mariah: Um… well, this is where… this is where stitch grabbed me. Then he locked me in that room for weeks and weeks.

Noah: I’m — I’m sorry. I didn’t realize.

Mariah: It’s — it’s fine. That’s why I’ve been a little wary going out on my own lately.

Noah: Yeah, I totally get it. And I’ll gladly be your running buddy.

Mariah: For how long? A week? A month? Indefinitely?

Noah: Oh, did mom put you up to asking me this?

Mariah: Well, we’re a little bit curious as to why you came home from london. I mean, we’re thrilled to have you back. Don’t get me wrong. It just wasn’t expected.

Noah: [ Sighs ]

Mariah: Oh. I know that look. I’ve had that look on my face a lot lately.

Noah: Yeah? What look is that?

Mariah: The one where you don’t want to lie, but you also don’t want to bare your soul about what’s going on.

Noah: [ Sighs ]

Christine: Abby, I have been in constant touch with my contacts at the state department. In fact, I just got off the phone with one of them.

Abby: And what were you told?

Christine: They are committed to getting answers.

Abby: In this lifetime?

Christine: The agents who are working on this are so familiar with that area of spain, as well as the criminal organization behind the bombing. I mean, they are a large group of experienced operatives from both the local jurisdiction and the U.S. They will get to the bottom of what happened to chance and everyone else in this mission.

Abby: Eventually. But what if chance is out there? What if he’s hurt? What if he’s out there hiding? I mean, I can’t just leave him to fend for himself when he needs me the most.

Christine: This group of agents are so good. They’re gonna take care of it.

Abby: They don’t share the same connection with chance that I do, the kind where you just know things about the other person.

Nina: Like if they’re dead or alive.

Abby: Exactly! And it’s that connection that will not allow me to believe that chance is gone, the way that you all do.

Devon: Okay. Hey. Abby, what has changed since yesterday?

Abby: [ Sighs ] Look, I woke up this morning, and I — I realized that I am just going along with someone else’s version of what went down. It’s like I’m giving up on chance. Years ago, we mistakenly thought that chance was dead. Nina and I even went to his funeral. But it turns out that he was faking his death for an investigation.

Nina: The media has confirmed the explosion and that there were casualties.

Abby: I have to follow my instincts. Every fiber of my being is telling me that chance is still alive.

Victoria: Thank you.

Lily: Why are you letting this escalate into a war?

Victoria: What are you talking about?

Lily: Well, your father told billy to his face that he’s coming after chanccomm, which means billy, and you’re just gonna let that happen?

I’m jimmy dean and uh,

Victoria: I am focused on my husband’s health right now. I’m also overseeing a major merger of two corporations, so i have my hands full with more important things. I’m not involved in this little plan of theirs.

Lily: Right, and I should just take your word for it.

Victoria: Since when does billy have you fighting his battles for him?

Lily: Well, they’re coming at him through chanccomm, so that makes it my battle, as well.

Victoria: Well, I don’t know what you expect me to do about it. I’m not involved, as I said.

Lily: Look, clearly your dad wants to hurt billy, and he has his own thoughts on how to handle things, whereas I would prefer a more direct, above-board approach.

Victoria: What does billy have planned?

Lily: Look, I was hoping that you would be able to use your influence to stop things before they get ugly.

Victoria: You know what it sounds like? It sounds like you’re upset about more than someone potentially making a run at chanccomm. It sounds like billy’s being billy and that has created a little conflict between the two of you.

Lily: Well, I thought since you and ashland have a business connection, you would know the difference between a conflict between lovers and an opposing point of view between business partners.

Victoria: If this is so important to you, why would you come to me? Why don’t you just go to the source?

Lily: You know what? You’re actually right. I’m wasting my time with you.

Noah: Yeah, you nailed it.

Mariah: I figured.

Noah: Some stuff happened in england that I haven’t really wanted to talk about. I know the family’s been speculating, though.

Mariah: Oh, yeah. We’ve been making bets. I think that you are banksy, the mysterious artist, so… but seriously, I mean, if you need to talk to somebody…

Noah: You know, it’s really not that interesting. Between the two of us, it’s — it’s a love thing. I’ll get over it. Now, if you want to tell me what you can’t say to other people, you can.

Mariah: Well, um, I’m kind of also going through a love thing, but with dominic. You know, every time I’m away from the baby, it feels like it’s been years.

Noah: I’m sorry.

Mariah: It’s okay. It’s better than it was, but it’s still not easy.

Noah: I can only imagine how tough this is for you. How about we run it off? I mean, it probably won’t work, but we could pretend like it will.

Mariah: Yeah. That sounds like a great idea. I’ll race you.

[ Both laugh ]

Devon: Abby, it’s not giving up on chance to acknowledge that he was a part of a dangerous operation where things went wrong.

Abby: Things did. But my heart is telling me that chance survived, that he is still with us.

Christine: [ Sighs ] I just don’t think you understand what you would be walking into.

Abby: Well, what I do know is that the official view is that chance died in that explosion. So, how hard to you really think the state department is looking for him? Let me tell you — not hard at all.

Christine: No, abby, that’s not the —

Abby: And I also know that if I go there, if I go talk to those people, they’d be much more willing to talk to me, a concerned wife, than an agent from the U.S. Government. I could be able to get answers that these federal agents can’T.

Christine: What you are suggesting is so incredibly dangerous. You would be putting your life at risk, possibly your family.

Abby: Christine, I need to go there. I need to see where it happened.

[ Sighs ] If there’s even the slightest chance that my husband could be out there, that he wasn’t in that building, I need to pursue that. I am doing this. Can you please tell me where my father is? He needs to talk to victoria so I can arrange to get on the newman jet.

Nina: Your mom and dad went for food for when you wake up. They’ll be back soon.

Abby: Fine. Will you please let me know when they return? I’m gonna go pack.

Devon: So, what the hell are we gonna do to stop her from going?

Nina: Maybe we shouldn’T.

Nina: What abby’s decided to do — I don’t know. Maybe it’s not such a bad idea, going to the place where this happened, seeing for herself. I’d even be willing to go with her.

Christine: [ Sighs ] Nina, it would be so traumatic for you.

Nina: But maybe it’s what abby needs just to come to terms. I mean, maybe it’s what we both need.

Devon: Nina, I think that that might be true for you, but not abby right now, not — not considering the 180 she just made overnight. I don’t think she’s in a very strong emotional place. You know? I think that if you went, you would be going to find closure and make peace with what’s happened.

Christine: Whereas abby is reacting impulsively. She’s made up her mind to do this horrendously risky thing with almost no discussion.

Devon: Exactly, and what worries me more than anything is that she’s ready to fly off to someplace she’s never been before and ignore everything we’re saying about how dangerous it is, and she never mentioned dominic’s name, not one time. He’s not even factoring into her thinking right now because she’s so fixated on this idea that chance is alive and she’s the only person that can find him.

Christine: Who knows how she’d react when she’s standing in front of the ruins of that safe house? It is an active crime scene.

Devon: Yeah, no, and we don’t need to find out how she’s gonna react. As abby’s friend who loves her and who cares about her, I’m not signing off on this. I can’T. And I beg of you — do not go along with this, too.

Christine: The last thing we need to do is encourage this. Abby would be putting herself and her family in grave jeopardy, including her infant son.

Billy: There’s some fresh clothes, some toiletries, some food and some plates and a kettle. Make yourself some coffee or tea.

Gaines: Well, look at you. You thought of everything.

Billy: Trying to make sure you keep a low profile. I don’t think you want victor or anyone working for him seeing you out and about.

Gaines: Right. Got it.

Billy: Now, I am still looking into your story about how you escaped from tuscany. You still claiming that that’s all true?

Gaines: Listen, I took one hell of a risk coming back here. I could have just as easily disappeared again.

Billy: But you didn’T. So, why?

Gaines: Because I got a goal in mind — taking down the almighty ashland locke and hitting back at the people that are trying to keep his past buried and shut me up — his new family.

Billy: Well, in order for that to happen, I’m gonna need the letter from camilla rhodes.

Gaines: Mm.

Billy: The original one explaining that she’s leaving nothing to ashland in her will.

Gaines: Don’t worry. It’s in a safe place.

Billy: It’s not in my hands. And it needs to be.

Gaines: Ohh, easy, easy, easy, not so fast. I need to know your plan first. I need to know how you are gonna use it to maximum benefit. Are you gonna write another one of your sensational exposés, tell the world how despicable he really is?

Billy: When the time is right. It’s in the process of being written right now.

Gaines: The hell kind of answer is that?

Billy: It’s an honest one.

Gaines: Let’s get something straight. I am not gonna settle for any vague reassurances. You are not gonna placate me that easily. Do you understand? And I am not taking a single step forward unless I am absolutely certain that I can trust you.

Billy: That’s funny. I feel the exact same way about you.

Adam: A design competition? Well, that’s an interesting promotional idea. Uh, tell me more.

Chloe: Well, we would publicize it in a fashion design program all over north america. Or worldwide. Depends on budget.

Sally: Although anyone 18 or older is free to enter.

Chloe: And then we’ll publish the winners of each level of the competition on newman media website.

Sally: Yeah, and there will be different categories for you to enter your designs. We have sportswear, cruise wear, men’s wear, bridal.

Adam: What kind of prizes are we talking?

Chloe: Well, I was thinking for the grand prize of each division, an all-expenses-paid trip to new york fashion week.

Sally: Including an interview at a top fashion house. It’ll really pull the students in.

Chloe: I mean, listen, we need to do our research, but i think that, with all of our contacts, I think we could really make it happen. So, if we could just —

Lily: Hello. I’m sorry to barge in, ladies. I need five minutes of your time.

Adam: [ Clears throat ] Um, we can pick this up later.

Lily: So, adam…

Adam: Mm-hmm?

Lily: …Tell me. What do you want? What will it take for you to leave us alone?

Adam: Will you at least give me a hint about what you’re accusing me of?

Lily: Don’t pretend that you don’t know what I’m talking about. I’m not here to play games.

Adam: What’s on your mind, lily?

Lily: Well, victor made it very clear the two of you are coming after billy and chanccomm, so I’m here to ask — what do you want? Let’s make an arrangement. I am here to negotiate a cease-fire.

Adam: Say what you mean, mean what you say. I admire that. Unfortunately, there’s nothing to negotiate.

Lily: Everything in business is negotiable.

Adam: Look, you have been straightforward, so I will be straightforward with you, as well. Newman media has a plan, and we will move forward with it. For obvious reasons, I won’t get into the particulars with you, but —

Lily: You know there’s room for all of us, right? I mean, newman media is doing great. Chanccomm poses no threat to you. This is purely about victor’s hatred for billy. So, why are you going along with this? I mean, if anyone owes billy peace, especially on account of delia, it’s you. So, what are you doing? I mean, are you — are you trying to appease your father? And, you know, what’s funny is that billy never believed your whole thing about becoming a better person, but I really wanted to give you the benefit of the doubt. I have seen women in prison turn their lives around. I know it can be done. So, was I wrong about you? Or are you just beyond redemption? Nope

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Sally: Alright, we are gonnabut classy. Unique. Please, god, no cotton tote bags.

Sally: [ Laughs ] Okay. Um, wine opener. Coffee mug. Sewing kit.

Chloe: Yeah.

Sally: We could do a mini dressmaker form. And a pincushion, a thimble.

Chloe: Oh, I love the dress form idea. You know, those little doll-sized ones with the little movable arms.

Sally: It’s more like a mannequin, but…

Chloe: Right. Whatever. Both of them. You know, just stuff with our logos on them, tchotchkes.

Sally: Oh! Oh! We could do, like, retro lunch boxes that can also double as, like, mini —

Chloe: Sewing kits?

Sally: Yes! And they could be the consolation prize for our design competition.

Chloe: Nice, nice.

Sally: Oh, my god. I missed this so much.

Chloe: Brainstorming?

Sally: I just feel like we’re in mind-meld.

Chloe: We do really work well together.

Sally: I’d really hoped that coming to newman media would be a good move, but, like, this is far beyond anything I ever dreamed.

Chloe: Aww, I’ve enjoyed it, too.

Sally: We only have one cloud on the horizon — chanccomm.

Chloe: [ Sighs ]

Sally: You saw how upset lily was when she marched into adam’s office, and I have witnessed some tension between adam and lily’s partner, billy. Something is up.

Chloe: I know. I sensed it, too. I’m just trying not to worry about it.

Sally: Yeah, but don’t you think we should? It could wind up affecting our division.

Chloe: I just wish we could take our generous funding and spin off from newman media, become our own entity, stay away from the drama.

Sally: Yeah. I mean, I don’t really know if that’s the answer ’cause proximity to leadership’s kind of our strength. Adam doesn’t just fund everything. He also gives us access and exposure.

Chloe: Friendly reminder — this banter-flirtation thing you have going on with adam — it won’t fly once chelsea joins the team.

Adam: You’re not wrong. Redemption is a goal of mine. And I think have been successful at turning my life around. But at the end of the day, I am still a businessman, and no competition is better than some. As far as me owing billy some sort of debt, I can’t change the mistakes that I’ve made. And, unfortunately, no matter what I do, billy will never be satisfied. I mean, the minute jill put you two in charge, he’s just used chanccomm to attack me in the most brutal, personal ways possible. Not that he gave you much of a choice in that matter.

Lily: Mm. Are you finished?

Adam: Not quite. I’d, um — I’d actually like to make you an offer.

Lily: Oh. So, you are willing to negotiate?

Adam: No. I’m talking about a job offer.

Lily: [ Laughs ] You’re — you’re kidding, right?

Adam: [ Laughs ] When my father and I — we successfully crush chanccomm and we scoop up the remains, you are more than welcome to come along. I mean, we’ve always thought that you were the reason it succeeded. We have great admiration for you. Billy, on the other hand, only seems interested in using the company as his personal battering ram, going after whomever he dislikes on any given day.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] You know, that’s very ironic, given that’s exactly what you and victor have planned. But, honestly, none of this matters. You will never take chanccomm away from us.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] You really do have quite the poker face. Billy is rubbing off on you. But, uh, given his history of self-destructing, now might be a good time to consider a career move. It’s a bona fide offer. I really hope that you will seriously consider it, given how this is all gonna turn out.

Nikki: About this plan of yours…

Gaines: I put myself in enemy territory coming back to genoa city, surrounded by people that would just as soon kill me as say hello. Now, I did it because I wanted to see ashland get his. I came to you because I thought that our interests dovetailed and I thought that you would protect me and not throw me to the wolves. But if I have misread you in any way, I will be out of here so fast, it’ll make your head spin. So don’t blow this. Either we work together on this or not at all.

Billy: That’s a good point, given that neither one of us trusts the other. So, we take this one step at time. Either one of us can bail at any point.

Gaines: Alright. Sounds like a healthy way to move forward.

Billy: I’m glad we agree. Now, where is the letter? When you hear the word healthy,

Adam: What, um — what’s your question, nikki?

Nikki: I had a very troubling conversation with victoria earlier.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Don’t tell me that billy has gotten to her and now she’s having second thoughts about going after chanccomm?

Nikki: Not at all. She has no interest in protecting him. She doesn’t want to have anything to do with this.

Adam: Okay, well, then what is so upsetting?

Nikki: In case you haven’t heard, she and ashland are getting ready to fly to peru. His chemotherapy isn’t working, and they are hoping to get him into an experimental treatment protocol.

Adam: Yeah. Ashland filled me in.

Nikki: Ah. Well, so you are aware that they are facing an uncertain future. But instead of focusing on his health, your plan has ashland riled up. He’s upset with billy all over again. It’s wasting a lot of time and energy, and it’s creating a lot of negativity at the worst possible time.

Adam: Ashland wanted to be involved. It was his choice. He was pushing for this. So I had no idea that it was problem.

Nikki: Well, it is. That’s why I’m here. Because in your zeal for revenge, I don’t think you have taken everything into account, you or victor. And victor is very busy concentrating on abby, as well he should be.

Adam: [ Scoffs ] Uh, well, I appreciate you letting me know.

Nikki: You know, I came away from our talk yesterday believing that you had good intentions, that your desire to be the man you were always meant to be was sincere.

Adam: What exactly are you asking me to do?

Nikki: Well, I can’t be any more specific because I have no idea what you and victor have in mind. I don’t want to know.

Adam: Well, that seems to be the consensus.

Nikki: He has assured me that it won’t have any negative impact on our grandchildren, but I find that hard to believe considering your target is katie and johnny’s father.

Adam: This really is just business, nikki.

Nikki: Oh, please. Don’t insult my intelligence. It’s a lot more than that for your father and for you. So I am asking you to please forego the temporary satisfaction in leveling this man that you seem to detest so much and think about what you’re doing. Please think about the long-term damage it could do to other people caught in the cross-fire.

Billy: Hey.

Lily: Well, so much for taking the high road.

Billy: What do you mean by that?

Lily: Well, I ran into victoria, and she completely stonewalled me, so I went to go see adam. And he was as smug and self-congratulatory as ever.

Billy: Ah, yes, the new and improved adam. It’s all a facade to win hearts and minds.

Lily: I mean, there’s no talking to him. There’s — there’s no reasoning.

Billy: I’m surprised you even tried, lily.

Lily: I had to try. I had to so that I could say i did everything I could and I had no other choice.

Billy: No other choice but to what?

Lily: To do whatever it takes.

Billy: Oh, hell, yeah.

Lily: Yeah, we’re not letting them get away with this.

Billy: I am very happy to hear you say that. And I got something else that i think will make you happy — the original letter from camilla rhodes stating that ashland gets nothing from her will.

Lily: Gaines gave this to you?

Billy: Yes, he did. Now, right there is our ace in the hole.

Christine: Nina, this trip is not an option. Undercover operatives were lost. It is a tumultuous situation, and abby wants to go running around asking about an american who was working undercover?

Devon: It’s just not smart.

Christine: This danger is real. It’s not gonna happen. And I’m sorry, but I will do everything in my power to keep the two of you from getting anywhere near that building.

Nina: Abby and I need this

[Voice breaking] If only just to finally accept that chance is gone and move on. But, you know, thinking about it, what if she’s right? What if he’s hurt and he can’t find a hospital and no one is looking for him?

Christine: Abby is not right. I’m sorry. I wish she knew something we don’t, but she doesn’T. And as painful as it is for me to say this to you… honey, ch– chance is gone.

[ Voice breaking ] And he’s not coming — he’s not coming back.

[ Both crying ]

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Nina: [ Sniffles ]

[ Exhaling heavily ]

Christine: God, I — I have to take this. I’m so sorry.

Nina: It’s okay.

Christine: Nina, I’m gonna come back and check on you. I… trust me on this, please.

Devon: Nina… I would never claim to say that I know what you’re feeling right now. But I do know how a loss like this can overwhelm everything. And it makes it difficult to think rationally when your feelings are raw. I completely understand that. But I can’t stress to you enough how bad of an idea this would be.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

[ Footsteps approaching ] Traveling light to save some time. You know, I was upstairs thinking. Now, I probably shouldn’t be doing this alone. Would one of you be willing to fly to spain with me? Motrin works fast to stop pain where it starts.

Sally: I don’t need any reminders. Thanks. My personal life is under control.

Chloe: Well, listen up anyway. The whole reason I accepted adam’s offer to create this fashion division under the newman media umbrella was because of my best friend — chelsea.

Sally: So you said.

Chloe: She may not want adam anymore — thank god — but she definitely won’t want to see him with anyone else. It will make this unworkable. So, all these good feelings that you have about our collaboration — it will go out the window. So, if you want this as much as you say you do, please, please stick to our original plan and move on.

Sally: Okay. Message received.

Chloe: I sincerely hope you mean that, sally. I know that you have something to prove. And I really — I really think it’s great. It’s a big reason why I decided to bring you on — because making a name for yourself, building credibility and respect, not to mention taking home a big, fat paycheck…

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Chloe: …Should definitely be your main focus. Lingering romantic feelings with adam, not so much.

Sally: Okay. Everything you said before that last little bit — that is my main focus. I’m happy being unattached.

Chloe: Good. Because I do share your concerns. Things are about to get real dicey around here, and we really need to focus on protecting our assets.

Adam: I got gaines hidden away. What’s more, I hold the proof that can bury ashland locke and newman media. So you, victor, and ashland are gonna cancel your plans to attack chanccomm. Otherwise, I bring you all down.

Devon: Can we just stop for a second, abby, and think about what you’re talking about doing and think about how reckless it would be to go to a place that’s that dangerous and that unstable, where there’s men and women still risking their lives there every day?

Abby: Chance may be one of them.

Devon: Even if he is, it doesn’t matter. We can’t let you go.

Abby: You can’t let me go look for my husband?

Devon: No, we can’t because there’s people already looking for him, and we’re not gonna let you put your life at risk.

Abby: The authorities have given us no definitive proof that chance was in that building when it blew up. So, what, they expect us to just roll over and accept this? Don’t you want to see what happened for yourself?

Nina: Yes. Oh, my god, yes, I do. I know why you want to go, abby. I’m feeling all the same things.

Abby: Well, great. Great. Yeah, go pack your things. I will handle things on this end.

Nina: No, wait. Let me finish. What you’re proposing to do — it’s a terrible idea. It just isn’t safe.

Abby: I don’t care about the danger.

Nina: It’s not just the danger, though.

Devon: Abby, are you trained, like, to go and do anything like this? Do you have experience in law enforcement?

Abby: The authorities aren’t looking for chance!

Devon: Why would you say that? “A,” you don’t know that for a fact, and, “b,” what are you gonna do when you show up to a crime scene that you weren’t invited to? All the people that are there, the agents — they’re gonna have to stop whatever they’re doing so they can deal with you. Can you please just leave this up to the professionals? I beg you.

Abby: I have left it to the professionals! And they have given me no real answers! Look, I know that I can take this on. I am going to fly to valencia, and I am gonna find out what happened to chance. Whether or not you want to come with me, I don’t care, so stop trying to talk me out of it.

Mariah: If you’re going to spain, what does that mean for dominic? Should I move back in and stay with him?

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Amanda: I know. And I know that I have your support, even if you’re not right by my side. So don’t worry. I will be fine. Really. I promise you, okay? What I am really worried about is this Chance situation. It’s horrible. I want you to know I understand why you have to be there with Abby and Dominic. They need you more than I do.

Devon: You really are amazing. You know that?

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. So are you. Now, promise me you won’t worry about me, okay? Just take care of Abby.

Devon: See, that right there is one of the many reasons why I love you so damn much.

Amanda: I love you, too.

Devon: Alright. I’ll call you later.

Amanda: Okay.

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

Amanda: Are you really gonna talk to me about fate? What about my father’s fate? What about my fate? What about the fate of my twin sister? All because of what you forced my mother to do. You never gave a damn about us.

[ Sighs ] You have a hell of a lot of nerve coming here and asking me for mercy, the one thing that you never gave to anyone, including your own family.

Itchy?

Amanda: I never should’ve let you inside the door. It was a mistake, even talking to you.

Sutton: Hold on, Amanda. Think about it. Why did you let me in? I’ll tell you, since I’m the only one being honest here. You were hoping to see me beg for my life, weren’t you? You wanted me to plead with you, not to let me be torn away from my family.

Amanda: The way that I was torn away from mine?

Sutton: You know full well that you had no intention of showing me any mercy, but that’s the point of all this, isn’t it? The betrayal.

Amanda: Betrayal?

Sutton: Yeah.

Amanda: Wow, you feel betrayed?

Sutton: No, well, you make a show of righteous anger, claiming it’s all about getting justice, when you and I both know better, but you’d never have the guts to admit it.

[ Chuckles ] Your turning on me is nothing more than a vindictive act.

Amanda: So what if it is?!

Nate: [ Clears throat ] You think Chance is still out there.

Abby: You said that like a statement, not a question. And this isn’t a matter of denial. Look, yes, they found his watch and ring at the explosion site, but they didn’t find him. So, I can hear the news and I can hold his ring in my hand. But
in my heart, I just — I don’t think…he’s alive. I know it. He’s not dead.

Devon: So Ashley just said that Nate is there with Abby right now.

Mariah: Yeah. Yeah, you’re right. You sure you don’t need help getting him back to the Chancellor house?

Devon: No, no, I’m fine. I appreciate it. I left bread crumbs.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Tessa: Can I take you back to our suite now?

Devon: I promise you, you have nothing to worry about. That little boy knows what strength and safety feels like because you protected him for all that time. Don’t forget that. Let some other people look after him now.

Ashley: Honey.

Abby: [ Sniffles ]

Ashley: Oh, honey. Honey. Honey, honey, honey, I’m so sorry.

Abby: [ Sniffles ]

Ashley: Is there anything i can do at all? Is there anything I can do?

Abby: [ Sniffles ]

Ashley: [ Exhales sharply ]

Devon: Hey. I’m sorry I can’t be there with you today when michael comes to go over your testimony.

Amanda: Don’t worry. I’ll be fine.

Devon: No, I know you will, but I just — I also know how big of a step this is for you to testify and bring up everything about your father again. So I — I just wish that I could be there for you.

Amanda: I know. And I know that I have your support, even if you’re not right by my side. So don’t worry. I will be fine. Really. I promise you, okay? What I am really worried about is this chance situation. It’s horrible. I want you to know I understand why you have to be there with abby and dominic. They need you more than I do.

Devon: You really are amazing. You know that?

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. So are you. Now, promise me you won’t worry about me, okay?Just take care of abby.

Devon: See, that right there is one of the many reasons why I love you so damn much.

Amanda: I love you, too.

Devon: Alright. I’ll call you later.

Amanda: Okay.

Devon: [ Sighs ]

[ Door closes ]

Victor: Sweetheart, I brought you some tea.

Abby: I don’t want tea, okay? What I need is for everyone to just go.

[ Voice breaking ] Just leave me alone.

[ Sniffles ]

[ Breathes deeply ]

[ Knock on door ]

Amanda: Sutton? I can’t believe you have the audacity to show up here. Well, you must know that I have nothing to say to you.

Sutton: Please, amanda, just give me five minutes. I’m sure you’ll agree that after you hear me out, this conversation could change the outcome of everything.

Ashland: [ Gasping lightly ]

[ Breathing heavily ]

[ Groaning lightly ]

[ Panting ] Ohh.

Victoria: Ashland.

Ashland: [ Breathing heavily ]

[ Door slams ]

Lily: Wait, you want us to hide you?

Gaines: Please. I don’t got a lot of options.

Billy: Okay, hold on a second. You mysteriously disappeared from tuscany, and now you show up here? What happened? Where have you been?

Lily: And why are you coming to billy for help? Serena: It’s my 3:10

Victor: Sweetheart, listen to me. It is not a good idea for you to be alone right now. You don’t have to talk. We’ll give you all the space you need. But we will not leave you alone.

Devon: No, not at all, and you don’t have to worry about anything. We’ll take care of dominic and everything else.

Abby: I’m sorry.

[ Sniffles ] Please forgive me. I really am grateful that you’re here. I didn’t mean…

Ashley: Of course, honey. You’re exhausted. We totally understanD. Were you able to get any rest?

Abby: I tried, but…

Ashley: Of course it wouldn’t work — ’cause you’re in the middle of everything down here. I think you need to go to your own room, honey.

Abby: I am tired. I’m pretty tired.

Ashley: Yeah. So let me take you upstairs. You lie down in your own bed, okay? And you can stretch out. Okay?

Abby: Yeah.

Ashley: Okay.

Abby: [ Sniffling ]

[ Sighs ]

Ashley: Come on, sweetie.

Victor: [ Breathes deeply ] This is a tough one, devon.

Devon: Yeah, it is.

Ashland: Thank you, sweetheart. I’m okay, though. The pain only lasted a few moments, and then it subsided. I’m feeling much better. Thank you.

Victoria: Alright. Well, I’m glad to hear that, but are you sure getting on a plane tomorrow is a good idea? Flying all the way to peru to receive a medical evaluation — that might be a little bit too much for you right now.

Ashland: The symptoms make me more determined to go. The cancer’s not responding to the chemo and there’s no time to waste and this is my best option, so I’m determined to go.

Victoria: You do seem very determined.

Ashland: You better believe it. If there’s any chance that I can have extended time with you, I’m gonna go after it. There’s nothing I’m gonna let stand in the way.

Victoria: Gosh, I just — I love seeing you like this, with such strength and resolve.

Ashland: Yeah, I just can’t stop thinking about how, just when I was about to commit every remaining moment of my life to you, that billy showed up in tuscany intent on stopping our wedding. He was hoping to rob me of this small window of happiness that I’ve been fortunate to find with you.

Victoria: But he didn’t succeed. I don’t want you to think about that. We dodged that bullet.

Ashland: Yeah, for now. You know, there are so many things in my life that I can’t control. This is one thing I can. Billy will answer for his actions.

[ Breathes deeply ] Victor, I need an update on the moves that we are planning to make against billy and chanccomm. I spoke to adam earlier, and he told me that everythig is moving along as planned.

Victor: That’s right.

Ashland: Listen, I’m heading to peru tomorrow. I’m probably gonna be dealing with doctors and this experimental protocol and most likely be unable to get any sort of updates or a progress report.

Victor: Well, don’t you concern yourself, alright, ashland? The most important step in our plan has been taken. That is what adam just told me.

Ashland: So, you really think that billy will do as you expect?

Victor: Billy won’t be able to help himself.

Billy: First of all, why did leave the suite in tuscany? I told you specifically to stay put.

Gaines: Yeah, and I could see that you were waffling, and i didn’t think that I could trust you. I didn’t come all that way for nothing. So I decided to take matters into my own hands. And I waited all night until the wedding started, but before i could make my move, victoria’s brother nick showed up, and he locked me in his suite. And then his other brother got involved.

Billy: Adam?

Gaines: Yeah. Adam. Adam was far less congenial. He had me dragged down to some storage room in the bottom of the palazzo to keep me from disrupting the wedding.

Lily: You’re saying adam held you against your will?

Gaines: Yeah, that’s exactly what I’m saying. And victor had newman security drag me out in the middle of the night to some nearby farmhouse.

Lily: So I’m guessing they took your I.D., Your money, your devices? You couldn’t call for help?

Gaines: Yeah. Of course they did. First I thought they were just trying to scare the hell out of me, but then I started hearing snatches of conversations that sounded a lot more ominous.

Billy: And what were they saying? Who was saying it? Newman’s security goons were talking. I was worried that they were gonna take more drastic measures to shut me up.

Billy: And by “drastic,” you mean permanent?

Gaines: Yeah. First I thought maybe they’d just beat the hell out of me, but then I was wondering if they were gonna do something to shut me up for good.

Billy: How did you escape?

Gaines: Well, it wasn’t easy. They had me locked in the wine cellar of some 100-year-old property. I searched every inch of that room, until finally I found this old boarded-up door behind a wine rack that led outside.

Lily: Really? That’s convenient.

Gaines: I know. It sounds nuts, but that’s what happened.

Lily: So, how did you get out of italy with no money, no passport?

Billy: We checked all the manifests of everywhere that you could have traveled. There was no one by the name of jesse gaines that left italy.

Two loads of snot

covered laundry. Hi, my name is tony cooper, and I’m 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 are 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 coinsurance. 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, hospitals 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 silver sneakers 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 zero-dollar copay. You get all of this for as low as a zero-dollar 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 could save on your prescriptions, and to get our free decision guide. Humana, a more human way to healthcare. Nyquil severe gives you powerful relief

Lily: Okay, you had to have had help getting out of italy. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have been able to pull it off.

Gaines: No. As you know, victor’s team had me stripped of anything — money, I.D., Passport. So I had to rely on my wits. I walked and I hitchhiked to some nearby airfield, and i stowed away on a cargo plane.

Billy: With no idea where it was headed?

Gaines: No, I was able to identify one that was headed to new york. I got here a day ago. And then I hopped on a cross-country freight train, i got off just outside of chicago, and I made my way here.

Lily: I don’t understand. I mean, you’ve been paid a small fortune from locke and victor and billy, so why wouldn’t you access the money once you were back in the country?

Gaines: [ Chuckles ] Good question. Believe me, I was tempted, considering my love for the creature comforts. I don’t like living like an animal. But I quickly realized that not having access to my funds was a blessing in disguise. It would have been the easiest way for them to track me down. It would have left a trail of expenditures.

[ Water bottle thuds ]

Billy: Why come to me?

Lily: Why come back here at all if you’re so afraid of the newmans?

Gaines: Because things come into sharp focus when you’re hiding out in the bowels of a cargo plane, running from people who view you as dispensable.

Lily: So, what are you saying? You’re not afraid anymore?

Gaines: No. I’m not. I am enraged. Do you understand? I want to take them all down, not just locke, but victor newman and his eager, dutiful son, adam! And I thought that maybe you would have some interest in the mission.

Victor: [ Sighs ]

Devon: You know, I really, really hate watching abby go through this.

Victor: [ Sighs ] Yeah. My daughter does not deserve this pain.

Devon: No, she doesn’t at all. But she’s gonna get through it with our help, and I want you to know that I’m gonna make myself completely available to her and dominic whenever they need me. I’ll rearrange my schedule anytime. I don’t care.

Victor: I’m grateful that you’re here.

Devon: Thank you.

Victor: And by the way, this probably brings back some bitter memories for you, doesn’t it? I mean, considering the loss of your dad.

Devon: I mean, I’m — I’m fine. I’m — I don’t have room in my head for anything else right now except for what’s best for abby and for this baby right here.

Victor: Well, together, we will help her through this.

Devon: You don’t think there’s a possibility that chance wasn’t in that building when it blew up, do you?

Victor: [ Exhales heavily ] No. I have some highly placed sources in the state department, and they tell me that there’s almost no chance at all and no survival, you know? That building was blown to smithereens. Same information that christine received.

Devon: It’s just so unnecessary. It’s completely unnecessary. Who — who takes on a life-threatening job right after they get married and then they promise their wife they’re gonna start a family? And then who’s dumb enough to bring with them a personally engraved watch and ring on a job that you’re meant to be undercover? We don’t know if that — that could be the very thing that cost him his life.

Victor: But listen. I think chance was the kind of man who probably felt this is something he had to do.

Devon: He didn’t have to do it. He didn’t have to do anything. He made the choice to do it. That’s — he made a choice, and it was the wrong one.

Victor: [ Sighs ]

Amanda: What are you doing here, sutton? How did you even know where to find me? Are you having me followed? Is that how you know where i live?

Sutton: My attorney told me this is where you’re having material sent. I wasn’t certain you were living here until you told me just now.

Amanda: Well, it’s really none of your business.

Sutton: I’m happy for you. Mm. Seems devon is a good man. And he clearly cares about you very much.

Amanda: Yeah, he does. Which is why he would have told me to follow my first instinct and slam the door in your face.

Sutton: Oh.

Amanda: You know, whatever it is that you need to say to me…

Sutton: Hear me out, amanda. I know there’s nothing that i can say that will change how you feel about me, but I’m asking you to just consider how it will affect your mother and your sister if you testify against me.

Amanda: Oh, so now you care about them.

Sutton: I have always put them first. I provided a good life for naya and imani. I protected them.

Amanda: Controlled them, you mean. Because this “good life” that you speak of, it was all if they toed the line, if they did what was best for you, for your self-image, for your precious career.

Sutton: Amanda, you’re an intelligent woman, an accomplished attorney. You know things are never that simple.

Amanda: Oh, yes, you are right about that, because this is a very complicated situation.

Sutton: Naya and imani have come to rely on me, and I want to continue to provide for their financial stability, to see that they have the kind of life that they’ve become accustomed to and that they deserve.

Amanda: You do know that naya has a husband, right? His name is eric. He is completely capable of taking care of her. Oh, and imani, she will be going into practice with me, so she’ll be able to take care of herself. So I’m sorry, sutton, but they don’t need you. In fact, they’re better off without you.

Sutton: And what about me?

Amanda: What about you?

Sutton: I’m an old man. I can’t die in prison. Are you so cold-hearted that you would wish that fate on your own grandfather?

Amanda: Are you really gonna talk to me about fate? What about my father’s fate? What about my fate? What about the fate of my twin sister? All because of what you forced my mother to do. You never gave a damn about us.

[ Sighs ] You have a hell of a lot of nerve coming here and asking me for mercy, the one thing that you never gave to anyone, including your own family.

Itchy?

Amanda: I never should’ve let you inside the door. It was a mistake, even talking to you.

Sutton: Hold on, amanda. Think about it. Why did you let me in? I’ll tell you, since I’m the only one being honest here. You were hoping to see me beg for my life, weren’t you? You wanted me to plead with you, not to let me be torn away from my family.

Amanda: The way that I was torn away from mine?

Sutton: You know full well that you had no intention of showing me any mercy, but that’s the point of all this, isn’t it? The betrayal.

Amanda: Betrayal?

Sutton: Yeah.

Amanda: Wow, you feel betrayed?

Sutton: No, well, you make a show of righteous anger, claiming it’s all about getting justice, when you and I both know better, but you’d never have the guts to admit it.

[ Chuckles ] Your turning on me is nothing more than a vindictive act.

Amanda: So what if it is?!

Victoria: Ashland. Do you really think that it’s a good idea for you to get involved in this plan with my father and adam against chanccomm? Given the state of your health and after what I just witnessed, I mean, wouldn’t it be better for you to focus your energy and your attention on your recovery?

Ashland: Well, I didn’t expend any energy. I just asked for an update, that’s all.

Victoria: I’m just saying, don’t you think it would be better for you to — to think about this trip to peru and the new experimental treatment?

Ashland: My darling, you don’t have to worry. I will do everything in my power to prolong my life.

Victoria: I just don’t want you getting in too deep into whatever this is with my father, especially if it causes you even the tiniest amount of stress. I mean, who knows what kind of negative impact this might have on your health?

Ashland: [ Chuckles ] Trust me. I am not playing a major role in this. I just wanted to know if the moves that we’re making against billy and chanccomm are moving along as planned. You said you didn’t want to know any details, so I’ll leave it at that.

Victoria: I’m saying, I want them to proceed without your direct involvement. You have enough battles to fight. You don’t need that one, too. Let my father handle this.

Devon: Let me tell you, the second that chance agreed to start a family with abby, he had a commitment to his wife and to that baby, and that’s it. End of story. I don’t care what kind of job he has. I respect it. It’s fine, it’s great. But he should never have gone. He should never have gone and he should have never made promises to abby that he couldn’t keep.

Victor: Well, you know, we don’t know all of the circumstances, and maybe he didn’t have much of a choice.

Devon: He for sure had a choice. They didn’t drag him out there. They could’ve sent another agent. He could’ve stayed home. He could’ve decided to stay home with his brand-new wife and his new family that he said he wanted to start. But he didn’t do that. He made the decision to go back out and put his life in danger, and now abby’s alone and his son has no father.

[ Dominic crying ] I’m sorry, buddy. I’m sorry. Here. Oh, come here. It’s okay. It’s okay, I’m sorry.

[ Sighs ] (Drill sergeant) what a pleasant morning. It’s warm, but not too warm.

“The young and the restless”

will continue. -Hi mommy! -Hi honey!

Victor: I just want you to know, I feel the same kind of frustration you do, seeing what abby’s going through.

Devon: I have no doubt that you do.

Victor: We just have to do everything we can to help the little boy and help her, you know?

Devon: Mm.

Victor: I got to tell you something, devon. You’re a hell of a friend, you know? Abby is lucky to have you.

Devon: Thank you.

Victor: Yep.

Devon: Thank you. I appreciate that. I want you to know that I meant what I said, too, about being there for her and dominic, whatever they need.

Victor: Appreciate that.

Devon: Of course.

Ashley: Abby’s trying to sleep. I’m sure it’s not coming easily.

Victor: Well, any rest she can get is gonna help her, right? Talking about that, devon, why don’t you — why don’t you go home? You need some rest. I’m sure you have things you have to do.

Devon: I don’t have anything I can’t postpone.

Ashley: Please, victor’s right. We are so grateful for you, but I think we’ve got it covered.

Devon: Okay. Alright, yeah, I’ll take off, but I’ll come and check on you guys later on. If you guys have any more information or you hear anything else, just please keep me in the loop.

Victoria: You bet. We will let you know, okay?

Devon: Appreciate it.

Ashley: Thanks again.

Victor: Alright, devon, thank you for everything.

Devon: Of course.

Ashley: Okay. What are we gonna do? I’m worried about abby.

Victor: I’m very worried about her, as well. I don’t know.

Ashland: When I promised to be open and honest with you, i meant it, so when I tell you that I am completely focused on fighting the most important battle of my life, you can believe me.

Victoria: I do. I do. I’m just concerned for you.

Ashland: You said you had no problem with newman media making a move against billy and chanccomm.

Victoria: I understand that it’s just business.

Ashland: Well, I’m sure that billy has entertained his own ideas about going after the competition.

Victoria: Without a doubt. Look, what I said about wanting to be left out of the details still stands, but — but I’d like to have some idea about the possible repercussions this might have on you and the tolls that it might take on your health.

Ashland: Trust me. You have no worries on that account.

Victoria: What about my children? Obviously, their father is involved in this. Is this business plan gonna have a negative effect on them?

Billy: Got you a fresh towel, some clean clothes. Why don’t you get cleaned off a little bit?

Gaines: Thanks. I could use a hot shower.

Lily: Are you buying any of this?

Billy: I don’t know. It’s a hell of a lot to swallow, isn’t it? If it is true, it’s got huge ramifications for victor, adam, and locke.

Lily: Okay, I know that you want to believe this, but we have to be skeptical.

Billy: Yes, I agree. We’ve got to look into this story. First things first, though, he cannot stay here. We’ve got the kids living with us while victoria’s out of town. We got to find him a place to stay while we vet his story.

Lily: Well, yeah, for us to use this, I mean, it has to be ironclad. There can’t be holes.

Billy: Of course. This is all about getting leverage on ashland, and by extension, victor and newman media. If his story is true, if he is telling the truth, and he’s still got the original letter proving that ashland forged his way into his fortune, this is what we need to turn the tables on victor and newman media.

Lily: Those are some mighty big “ifs.”

Amanda: If wanting to see you put away for what you did is vindictive, then so be it. Finally, you will get exactly what you deserve.

Sutton: You’re right. It was a mistake, my coming here. You know, I thought you might have a shred of compassion and consideration for what you’re about to do to this family. Your family. Apparently, that’s not the case.

Amanda: Wait a minute. You’re not going anywhere. Empty your pockets.

Sutton: What?!

Amanda: You heard me. Empty your pockets.

Sutton: I’ll do no such thing.

Amanda: You are gonna empty your pockets or I’m gonna call the police. Oh, come on, you’re gonna have to push me over to get past me, so empty your damn pockets.

Devon: Hey, what the hell is going on here?

Amanda: Sutton thinks that he is so clever. He’s trying to turn the tables on me, huh?

Sutton: [ Groans ]

Amanda: You’re gonna empty your pockets, grandfather, or I’m gonna call the police and then I’m gonna call michael baldwin, and then we can sit down and explain to them what’s really going on.

Sutton: What are you talking about? There’s nothing to tell, and why do you think that — that I’m hiding something?

Amanda: This innocent act, okay? It’s not fooling anyone.

Devon: Okay, alright, hey. How about I keep him company and you go make that call?

Amanda: Mm, yes.

Sutton: [ Scoffs ]

Amanda: Exactly what i thought. So all of this deep concern about naya and imani and their future, it was all a bunch of bull, huh? You didn’t care about them. The only person that you ever care about is yourself. My auntie called me.

Amanda: So my grandfather wanted to get a recording of me admitting that I was only testifying against him out of vindictiveness so that he could pass it on to his attorneys. They could use it in court and diminish and taint my testimony.

Devon: I mean, I’m not surprised. He would throw anybody in his family under the bus.

Sutton: [ Scoffs ]

Amanda: Get out of my sight, sutton.

Sutton: What a disappointment you’ve turned out to be.

Amanda: Don’t you dare talk to me about disappointment.

Devon: Hey, sutton. How about you get out of our house? Are you okay?

Amanda: I just can’t believe I almost fell for it. I almost let him get to me again. It’s like he’s a master at manipulating and playing with my emotions.

Devon: Yeah, but you didn’t fall for anything. You figured out what he was trying to do and you called him out on it to his face. Right?

Amanda: Yeah. You know, the fact that he would even try and do something like this shows how dangerous and scared he is. Which means that he knows the case against him is strong. And it’s possible that, out of desperation, sutton may have made a huge mistake. What he did tonight, it may help send him to prison.

Billy: I’m taking you to a motel so you can lay low while we corroborate your story and we plan the next move.

Lily: And just so you know, we’re not taking anything you say at face value.

Gaines: Well, I would be shocked if you did. But I will give you every aspect of every step of my journey so that you can verify it all.

Billy: That’s a start. One other thing. Please tell me you have the original letter from camilla rhodes, stating why she left ashland nothing in her will.

Gaines: Of course I do. How foolish do you think I am?

Ashley: I am so worried about her. My heart is breaking for abby. I wish chance had never taken that job.

Victor: Sweetheart, we just have to help her get strong so she can continue being a good mother.

Ashley: I know, and I’m grateful that she has such a fantastic support system. I mean, devon has been amazing.

Victor: He’s a wonderful kid, he really is, you know? Not only a good friend to abby, but he is very good with the boy.

Ashley: He literally helped bring that baby safely into the world.

Victor: Yep.

Ashley: You know, we are so blessed that he’s gonna be an integral part of our grandson’s life.

[ Footsteps ]

Abby: I heard dominic crying.

Victor: Sweetheart, he’s just a little fussy, that’s all.

Ashley: Before devon left, he was able to quiet him down and get him back to sleep, which is what I thought you were gonna be doing, honey.

Abby: I tried, but…I can’T. I mean, every time I close my eyes, I just — I dream of chance. It’s too painful. Makes me dread sleep. It’s like I never want to close my eyes again.

Victor: Abby, my sweetheart, maybe now’s a good time to take the anti-anxiety that nate prescribed, you know?

Abby: Yeah, maybe. I mean, maybe that’s what i need, sleep.

[ Knock on door ]

Nina: Cricket called and told me what happened. Oh, god. Until this very moment, it didn’t seem real.

[ Sobbing ]

Amanda: Sutton was goading me the whole time into incriminating my motives for testifying against him, all the while secretly recording every word. Yes, I have the recording device right here, and I will hold onto it so that you can hear every word. Yes, I’ll talk to you soon, michael. Bye.

Devon: You really are something. When I walked in here and you were standing in front of him, he was completely shocked.

Amanda: Well, I shocked myself.

Devon: Yeah, but he had the look of a man who had never been challenged a day in his life, ’cause he’s used to controlling everybody around him. And then he finally came face-to-face with someone who’s smarter than him. I’m very proud of you for how you’ve handled everything. You’ve been amazing.

Amanda: I just knew that this was the last time I’d let him play me. I wasn’t gonna get sucked in by him again.

Devon: Yeah, but you didn’t, and every time he tried, you checked him and you got back on track.

Amanda: Thank you. But we do have worse things to deal with than some arrogant old bully. Did you get any more news about chance?

Devon: No, no. I mean, abby is still hanging on to hope, but…I think that she’s starting to accept the reality that he’s not gonna come back home.

Amanda: Wow. How’s she doing?

Devon: She’s not doing good. She’s not doing good at all. And I’m honestly worried about her and dominic.

Victor: I’m so sorry.

[ Sighs ] Unfortunately, my sources can only confirm what christine has told you, okay? The only thing they found that belonged to chance were his ring and his watch.

Nina: I — I spent so many years just bracing for this moment. I mean, how many times has a phone rung in the middle of the night and my heart stopped? But somehow you just — you learn to live with the fear. Anyway, I… I just buried it so deep that i didn’t feel it. And now that it’s happened, i just kind of — I don’t know. I feel numb. Abby. May I? Hi, sweetie. Oh.

Ashland: Sweetheart, you have to realize that I wouldn’t go along with anything that i thought had the slightest possibility of negatively impacting your children. I would have done anything in my power to stop your father and brother from going through with it, if I thought that was the case.

Victoria: I had to ask.

Ashland: But billy has proven on more than one occasion that he’s willing to weaponize chanccomm, especially against me, which is bad enough, but — but when he made it personal and dragged gaines over to tuscany to make a public display at our wedding, well, I have to agree with victor that enough is enough and billy brought this on himself.

Victoria: I’m not gonna argue with you about that. Billy is nothing if not relentless.

Ashland: Yeah, well, what’s coming next to him is going to be pretty brutal. Everything has been carefully arranged down to the last detail. Although it’s a slightly risky endeavor.

Victoria: Dangerous?

Ashland: No, risky in that it might not work.

Billy: Put this on and wait here. I’m gonna take him to the motel. Get him settled in, make sure he’s safe.

Lily: Okay. Just please be careful, alright?

Billy: I will call you on the way home. Listen, you really are the only one in the world that I trust right now. Including victoria.

Lily: I don’t know about this. I mean, honestly, just —

Billy: No more. It’s okay. Look, this is either true or it’s a scam. Either way, I need to find out where it leads. Victor and adam are coming after us with everything they’ve got to destroy what we built. And I am gonna fight like hell to make sure that that does not happen. Let’s go.

Jack: I got.

Phyllis: You don’t —

Jack: I got it.

Phyllis: You don’t have to do that.

[ Sighs ]

Jack: Seem a little flustered. Is it the fire you had to put out back at work? You kind of left the lunch with Nick and Nikki pretty quickly.

Phyllis: Yeah, I’m sorry about that.

Jack: It’s okay. Had to navigate the Newman waters all by myself.

Phyllis: Yeah, yeah, I’ve had to nav– navigate those choppy waters. You know, it’s — nothing is going on at work. It’s my life. I think Nick and I may have just broken up.

Nick: Sorry to drop by unannounced. I hope it’s not a bad time.

Sharon: No, not at all. Is everything okay?

Nick: Yeah, I just wanted to, you know, see how you two were doing and maybe faith.

Sharon: Well, you just missed her. She’s out studying for a test with Moses.

Nick: Oh, man, I feel like i have seen her so little lately.

Noah: Yeah, I just told mom I was gonna cook dinner. You want to join us?

Nick: You know, I’m good. I don’t have much of an appetite.

Sharon: I take it things didn’t go that well with Phyllis.

Nick: I don’t really want to get into it.

Noah: Yes, you do.

Nick: What I’d really like to do is hear how things are going with you, bud.

Noah: No, mnh-mnh. No, you don’t get to change the subject. You came here ’cause you wanted to talk. We want to listen, ’cause we’re your family, too.

Ashland: Hello, my beauty.

Victoria: Oh, hello, there. I’m so glad you’re here. I’m doing a deeper dive into the experimental treatment that we’ve been pursuing. Trying to find out if I have a connection to the hospital that’s funding the research.

Ashland: Oh, well, I’m one step ahead of you. I was able to secure an evaluation appointment at the clinic hosting the treatment.

Victoria: That’s fantastic.

Ashland: There’s just one hiccup, though. They had one opening for me that they could fit me into, and it’s coming up soon — as in I have to leave right now.

Victoria: You mean we’ve got to go. That’s fine. The sooner we get you signed up for the protocol,

Lily: I know. It’s so rare these days. Normally, your mind’s going 100 miles an hour. Even when you’re trying to unwind, your multi-tasker brain is at work.

Billy: It’s another positive effect that you have on me, learning to slow down and shut things off a little bit.

Lily: Mm-hmm. So you’re not secretly checking your phone under the table?

Billy: Uh, I am.

Lily: [ Chuckles ]

Billy: I am busted. But you know what? I’m gonna turn into a zen master overnight, okay? But I will keep trying.

Lily: Ah.

[ Chuckles ]

Adam: We’re ready to put the plan in motion, so go ahead and set the bait. Report back to me how it goes. Why give your family just any eggs

Sharon: I agree with noah. You do seem stressed out. Now, I know I’ve said I’m not the best person to give advice when it comes to phyllis, but, you know, I can listen. We both can.

Nick: [ Sighs ] I guess I was looking for somebody to talk to about this. But I also feel like I’m all talked out, you know?

Noah: Yeah, well, whatever it is, it’s obviously still bothering you. It might feel better to get it off your chest.

Sharon: Yeah, talking it out can seem tiring, but it could also lift that weight off your shoulders and make this more manageable. You don’t have to worry about having your feelings all sorted out. We know you better than most, and we know how messy these things can be.

Noah: Yeah, messy’s actually my strong suit, so…

Nick: Okay, uh… got into another fight with Phyllis. Didn’t end well. Pretty sure it’s over.

Noah: I’m sorry, dad. I know you wanted to work things out.

Sharon: I’m sorry you guys have dug into a rut that you can’t get out of.

Nick: Well, I know you were expecting this when I told you i was having questions about my relationship.

Sharon: I would never say “i told you so” or imply that you deserve some kind of heartache. I know you’re hurting. The question is, do you think that this relationship can be repaired?

Jack: Take a deep breath. Slow down.

Phyllis: Okay.

Jack: You said you think that you and Nick are broken up. First of all, that’s normally one of the things that we’re pretty clear on one way or the other.

Phyllis: Right, right. Well, let’s add a lack of clarity to the list of our issues. Let’s do that. And you had a front-row seat to our final act, didn’t you?

Jack: Well, I will agree that lunch with Nick and Nikki was a bit strained, but I thought the two of you being there together was a good sign, that maybe the two of you were back on track.

Phyllis: Yeah, I thought so, too. But you saw how he reacted when I said the slightest little thing about the great victor Newman.

Jack: You criticized his father in front of his mother. I can understand where Nick might feel a little awkward there.

Phyllis: Okay, no, no, that’s not it. That’s not it. But — listen, he reacts the exact same way anytime he says something about his family and then i repeat it.

Jack: Okay, well, the dynamic in the Newman family has always been a bit different than that in the Abbott clan.

Phyllis: Yes, and I don’t want to be a part of it anymore. There was no work emergency, Jack. That was a lie. I don’t want to be a part of Nick’s judgment and his jealousy anymore.

Jack: What do you mean jealousy?

Phyllis: You know, and then after lunch, he found me back at the grand phoenix, and we had a conversation.

[ Exhales sharply ] All of this resentment that he feels toward me came out in all of its glory. And he told me in no uncertain terms that we cannot be together anymore.

Ashland: I’m not gonna presume that you would come with me on this trip. It’s only preliminary. An evaluation of my condition to see if I’m even a candidate for this treatment. I’m not gonna ask you to leave for that.

Victoria: Well, I’m offering.

Ashland: Look, Newman/Locke has just way too much going on, and you’ve shouldering most of the workload. I’ll only be gone a few days, sweetheart.

Victoria: No, I am not gonna let you go through this evaluation on your own, let alone a trip to Peru. We’re in this together 100%. Besides, it’s gonna be hard for you to process all of the medical information in the moment.

Ashland: I’ll be fine.

Victoria: You need someone there to take it all in with you, to ask questions. Most importantly, to hold your hand.

Ashland: I agree, but —

Victoria: Let me just rephrase that. I need to hold your hand.

Ashland: I’m not gonna be able to change your mind about this, am I?

Victoria: What do you think? So when do we leave?

Nikki: Leave? Leave for where?

[ Inhales sharply ] Your honeymoon? And tonight’s winning numbers are 18,

Ashland: Well, I wish we were going on our honeymoon, but, unfortunately, there’s been a change of plans and we’re just gonna have to put that on hold a little while longer.

Nikki: Oh, well, if this has something to do with work, I’d be happy to step up and handle things.

Victoria: Well, whatever small disappointment to put off the honeymoon, it pales in comparison. This is infinitely more important. Do you mind if I share the news with her?

Ashland: Of course, we’re all family now.

Nikki: Well, does this trip have something to do with Ashland’s health?

Victoria: Yes, but it’s a good thing. He has an opportunity to try an experimental treatment, so we’re jumping at the opportunity and we’re gonna fly to Peru and see if we can have him evaluated and get him signed up for the trial.

Nikki: Well, I pray that the evaluation goes well and that you can move forward to the new treatment.

Victoria: Thank you, Mom.

Ashland: I really appreciate the support, and, uh, I’m extremely touched by how you and victor have accepted me into your lives.

Nikki: Well, you’re our daughter’s husband now, so you are a very important part of this family.

Ashland: You know, you have trusted me with your daughter’s heart, and I want nothing more than to honor that. It’s Victoria’s love that spurs me on to beat back this damn illness for as long as I can.

Nick: I thought things with Phyllis could be repaired, but after this latest argument, Phyllis told me that she doesn’t agree.

Noah: She said that?

Nick: Yeah. In no uncertain terms. She’s very angry.

Noah: It’s hard to have a productive conversation with someone when they’re completely wrapped up in their own grievances.

Nick: It’s like talking to a brick wall. Nothing I say gets through. And when I do something, she doesn’t believe me anyway.

Sharon: Can you give us some specifics?

Nick: I don’t know what to say. Honestly, I have no idea how we got here. Things were — you know, they were great. We went into this relationship this time around with our eyes wide open. We had very reasonable expectations. We didn’t try and change one another. We accepted each other for who we are. You know, it was working. This was working.

Sharon: So, then where did things start to go wrong?

Nick: I thought it was in Italy, but Phyllis said it was way earlier than that, you know? I thought it was just, like, a bump in the road. I’ve been drawn into some family drama, as you know, with Victoria and Dad and Adam, and I guess I should’ve been focusing more on what was going on with us. But, you know, everything blew up. I tried my best to stay calm, but Phyllis was raw and hurting, and she was throwing around a bunch of accusations at me. It just went from zero to 60 so fast.

Phyllis: I feel if we’re not having sex or playing video games, it’s like you’re pushing me away or you’re distant. It’s like you want nothing to do with me.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Anyway, last thing I want to do is draw you into this mess, you know? I don’t want to dump all this on you. And I certainly don’t want you to feel sorry for me.

Jack: So tell me exactly what happened in this fight.

Phyllis: [ Exhales sharply ] It was awful. You don’t want to hear this. This is just familiar territory.

Jack: I’m fine. Talk to me.

Phyllis: You must be so tired of listening to me. But I have done everything I can to support him. Everything I can. I mean, we went to Kyle and summer’s wedding, and he was so distracted with Victoria and Ashland. I mean, it’s his daughter’s wedding. But I supported him, and then i doubled down and I accompanied him to Victoria and Ashland’s wedding in Tuscany. And then I even supported him when he decided not to go to the ceremony. I went alone. Me and his family. But he still thinks I don’t care and he still thinks that I don’t understand where he’s coming from.

Jack: That’s got to be frustrating.

Phyllis: Yes, it is, and i take all my consternation — I take it all, Jack, and I keep it to myself. And I stuff it in a box. And I still have his back, you know? And we had a really nice conversation. I thought we were getting somewhere this morning, and then we decided to go to lunch, and then you saw that. I say one little thing about his father and that is it, he shuts me down in front of both of you. And then I realized…we don’t deal with our issues. And if we do, it’s just on a superficial level. Do you know what I mean? I mean, it’s like there’s this superficiality to our relationship. It’s all fun and nice and fluffy, but it’s rotten inside.

Jack: Did you share that realization with Nick?

Phyllis: Oh. Of course I did. I told him exactly what I wanted. I told him I want a commitment and a confidant. And [Exhales sharply] Come on. I wouldn’t be working this hard at this if I didn’t care and if I didn’t love him.

Jack: So how did Nick react to this?

Nick: Loving and doting? That’s what you think you were being?

Phyllis: He just belittled me. With less moderate-to-severe eczema why hide your skin

Jack: Sometimes we say really unpleasant things in the middle of a heated argument.

Phyllis: Yep, and it may be unpleasant. It’s often…revealing. Those things we don’t want to say. Those things we gloss over. Those things that we hide from one another. And sometimes from ourselves.

Jack: You say you’re worried that there’s superficiality there. Maybe the answer is to dig deeper, to get it all out.

Phyllis: Well, normally, i would agree with you.

[ Chuckles ] Oh, god. This was not productive.

Jack: Okay, so give me an example. Look, I want to understand this. Maybe I can give you some perspective on where Nick is coming from.

Phyllis: See, that’s the thing, is I know where he’s coming from. I understand him. The problem is he doesn’t understand where I’m coming from, and he doesn’t want to. He doesn’t want to understand. Do you get it? I keep on trying to tell him that what we have is worth going there for, but he doesn’t want to. And I think that I just have to —

[ Breathes shakily ] I have to accept that I’m somebody, um…that he just doesn’t want to commit to.

Nick: Don’t do me any favors. You pretending to be superior or taking the high road is absurd.

Phyllis: What came out of that…was his obvious lack… of respect for me. And that hurts. Some things can’t be unsaid.

Sharon: Caring about you is not the same thing as feeling sorry for you. And you don’t have to go into details if you don’t want to, but you already said that Phyllis was angry and you seem hurt, so we’re just asking you what she said that hurt you.

Nick: After I talked to you two earlier, I went to her to apologize, and Phyllis actually admitted that she wasn’t happy. She did say that we’re in this together and we’re committed to doing the hard work to weed through our issues.

Sharon: Well, that’s good, but that process is bound to have some uncomfortable conversations and temporarily hurt feelings.

Nick: That’s not what this is.

Sharon: How can you be sure?

Nick: Because it turns out I’m the only one that’s willing to put in the effort. Then we got caught up in this weird, awkward lunch with Jack and my mom, and tensions amped up again and then Phyllis took off.

Noah: Running away never solves anything.

Nick: So I went and tracked her down to try and smooth things over. She didn’t want to talk, she just kept shutting me down, telling me that our relationship was hopeless.

Sharon: And so you just accepted that she had given up and that things were over?

Nick: No, I want her to talk about it because I want to understand. I want to get past our issues, but she just kept saying that — you know, that I always put my family before her. And I told her that it’s impossible for me to talk about my family with her because she has such strong opinions against them.

Noah: And what’d she say to that?

Nick: She told the truth.

Phyllis: You’re right! I do hate your family!

Nick: [ Sighs ] And I don’t know how to come back from that.

Adam: Hey. Hope you don’t mind me stopping by. I need to speak with Ashland.

Victoria: Well, he is on a call. I’m not sure how long he’ll be.

Adam: Okay. I can wait.

Victoria: In my office? Uh, no. I don’t think so.

Adam: Fine. I will text him. Unless you don’t mind passing along a message. It’s nothing I want to keep secret from you, since you’re on board with us going after Chanccomm.

Victoria: I assured Ashland that I don’t care if Newman media goes after them, that’s fine with me, but I don’t want to be involved. I don’t even want to know any of the details.

Adam: That’s fine by me. Just wanted to let him know that we have set things in motion.

Victoria: I will tell him.

Adam: Thanks.

Victoria: And just so you know, whatever happens next, he’s not gonna be around for that. We’re leaving for South America tomorrow afternoon. Ashland is pursuing a new cancer treatment.

Adam: Mm-hmm. It’s probably not the honeymoon you had in mind.

Victoria: Well, if it’s a success, it will be the best honeymoon ever.

Adam: Well, good luck. I hope for the best possible outcome.

Victoria: Thank you. I — I have faith that it’s gonna work. I mean, we’ve — we’ve just started our lives together, so i refuse to give up on it.

Adam: Well, I know when you’re determined, you won’t give up until you get what you want, so I look forward to seeing you and Ashland at your 10th wedding anniversary.

Victoria: What makes you think you’ll be invited to the party?

Adam: Well, you invited me to the wedding, so it’s required.

Victoria: Yeah, no, that’s not a rule.

Adam: Eh. Maybe not. But this, it feels like we’re bantering. Like siblings do. I’d like to think that we could build on this almost warm vibe.

Victoria: I’m pretty sure this is as good as it’s gonna get.

Adam: Okay, then.

Lily: How cute were the kids’ Halloween costumes this year?

Billy: Mm. So cute. Johnny was adorable. And Katie was a little scary. And you, of course, sexy.

Lily: Of course. It was for the after-hours party only.

Billy: Oh, yeah, wine and candy?

Lily: Yeah, that you stole from your children’s stash.

Billy: They have plenty to spare. And what can I say? I’ve got a soft spot for candy corn.

Lily: Oh, my god, I can’t believe I’m with someone who loves candy corn.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Cellphone rings ]

Billy: It’s Victoria.

Lily: Answer it.

Billy: Hello.

Victoria: Hey. Listen, I need to go out of town for a few days, and I was hoping that you could Johnny and Katie.

Billy: Yeah, sure, that’s fine. We love it when the kids come over to stay with us. Is everything okay? Is this business? Because I thought you were leaving for your honeymoon next week.

Victoria: I can’t get into it right now, but thanks for taking care of the kids. I appreciate it.

Billy: Of course.

Victoria: Bye.

Lily: What was that?

Billy: Victoria’s heading out of town for a few days unexpectedly, so the kids are gonna come and stay with us.

Lily: Yeah, that’s fine. I mean, it doesn’t really change our plans at all. Except I’ll warn them to hide their Halloween candy from you.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Maybe we should head home and have a little adult time before they come over.

Lily: Mm, excellent idea.

Billy: Yeah, okay. On second thought, maybe we should look at the dessert menu.

I can’t believe it. Guy’s gone missing again. He gave the slip to Newman security, so we have new marching orders — find him asap. Okay. So much for my dinner break.

Billy: That’s Victor’s P.I. He must be talking about Gaines. Sounds like that S.O.B. Has slipped through Victor’s fingers again.

Lily: Well, at least that proves that Adam and victor didn’t do something more sinister to him.

Billy: I’m not gonna give them credit for that. But it does open the door for us potentially.

Lily: [ Sighs ] Why do I feel like this is the end to our work-free evening?

Billy: We shouldn’t talk here. Let’s go home.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Adam: Tell me some good news.

I think it worked. What next?

Adam: We let Billy do what he does best — self-destruct.

Jack: I honestly thought that you and Nick would find some way to get through this. Maybe that was wishful thinking. Maybe there is no solution.

Phyllis: Other than walking away, I don’t know. That’s the only conclusion i have. It scares me to think of that, actually. It breaks my heart. Oh, god, I don’t want to fall apart here.

Jack: You know what? We could somewhere more private where everyone isn’t watching us. Sometimes losing it for a moment is exactly what we need.

Phyllis: No, not this time. I don’t want to do that. I just think I need to be alone.

Jack: Okay. I get that.

Phyllis: Shouldn’t be so shocked. I mean, it’s not like I haven’t been here before with Nick. But…I mean, this was inevitable, I guess, right?

Jack: No, don’t say that. Look, you said you and Nick had been here before and somehow gotten through it. Maybe this is the last time you’ll face something like this.

Phyllis: Yeah, ironically, i think it is the last time. Just not in the way I was hoping.

Nick: Thank you for listening and being supportive. Means a lot. Give faith a hug for me.

Sharon: Alright. Give Christian our love, too.

Noah: I haven’t seen dad this out of sorts in a long time.

Sharon: I know. I feel so bad for him.

Noah: Yeah, but I know you were biting your tongue about seeing this coming.

Sharon: Well, I don’t want to make him feel worse, kick him when he’s down.

Noah: But still, you told me that you predicted this.

Sharon: Yes, privately, I’ve never understood how your kid could fool himself again into thinking that this relationship would have any other outcome.

Noah: I like Phyllis. I do, but even I can see that she and dad are like night and day. I know opposites can attract, but I never understood that pull they have.

Sharon: I think it has to do with the excitement of doing something illicit and forbidden, but then, under normal circumstances, when there is no more drama, it gets boring and it falls apart.

Noah: Or maybe…it’s not any of that. Maybe, deep down…dad never got over you. Hi Susan! Honey?

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]

[ Cellphone rings ] Hey.

Jack: Hey. I just wanted to make sure you were back okay.

Phyllis: Liar. You wanted to make sure that i wasn’t in the fetal position, laying in a puddle of my tears.

Jack: It’s okay if you are, you know. More than anything, I want you to know if you need to reach out, I’m around.

Phyllis: You’re the best.

Jack: Be kind to yourself, okay? I’ll see you.

Phyllis: Oh, please, it’s not a flirtation.

Nick: Then what is it then? Because as far as I can tell, the second we have a conflict, you run straight to Jack.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]

Billy: Who knows what we’re gonna find behind the door that Gaines has opened? So many possibilities. But if we find him before victor’s people do, then we have the ammo to stop him from coming after Chanccomm.

Lily: There’s no assurance that finding Gaines will give anything but a liability.

Billy: Why would you think that? He’s got the proof that Ashland stole Camilla’s inheritance.

Lily: Yeah, and what do you want to do with the proof? We’ve talked about this. It could ruin Victoria and Ashland’s lives.

Billy: No, we don’t need to worry about that because we don’t need to publish the information. We will use it to blackmail Victor and Adam to stop them from coming after us.

Lily: [ Sighs ] No, we won’t.

Billy: Why not, Lily?

Lily: Because I am done with this, okay? I am not gonna humor you anymore. We’re done with Gaines.

Nikki: I think that meeting went well, don’t you?

Victoria: Yes, I like them. I think they’ll be good strategic partners for us.

Nikki: Thanks for the ride home. Now, I hope that you will go home and get some rest.

Victoria: Well, actually, I have to go back to the office and finish some work before we leave for Peru.

Nikki: Oh, Honey. I know you are focused on getting Ashland through this and staying positive, but you have to look after yourself, too. I mean, you’re gonna need all of your strength and then some.

Victoria: Mother, I am aware. Thank you for always looking out for me.

Nikki: Well, if you ever want to talk about it, I am here for you.

Victoria: Okay. I’m fine, though, really. I have high hopes for this new treatment.

Nikki: I am praying that it will turn things around for Ashland. I don’t want to see your heart broken.

Victoria: Well, I’m not gonna dwell on that. I’m — I’m very optimistic that it might work.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Nikki: Oh. Oh, it’s your father. Hi, darling. What? Oh, my god. Oh, how horrible. What can I do? Just tell me. Yes, yes, I understand. Okay, bye.

Victoria: What is it?

Nikki: Abby just got word that Chance might have been killed while doing undercover work.

Victoria: Oh, my goodness, this is so tragic. Poor Abby.

Nikki: Victor thinks she’s in shock.

Victoria: Well, yes, how could she not be? To get this kind of news and she’s caring for a newborn? We should go over there and we should help her.

Nikki: Well, he’s there with her and Ashley is there. He says she’s overwhelmed and doesn’t want any more visitors. Victor’s gonna wait there with her until they hear more news. But this has not been officially confirmed, so for now, we’re keeping it private.

Victoria: Of course. Gosh, Mom, my heart goes out to her. Abby must be so devastated.

Ashland: [ Exhales sharply ]

[ Breathing heavily ]

Lily: Look, just forget Gaines, forget Ashland, okay? We will beat the Newmans ourselves by being better, smarter, savvier, okay? We don’t need anyone or anything else.

Billy: Okay, but, Lily —

Lily: No, Billy, this is what I’m sayin–

[ Knock on door ]

Billy: Must be the kids.

Lily: Yeah.

Billy: What the hell?

Gaines: Please, I have nowhere else to go. I’m not safe. Can you hide me?

Nick: What do you mean this isn’t gonna work? You know what? You can’t say something like that and just walk off without explaining yourself.

Phyllis: That’s all I do is explain myself to you.

[ Scoffs ] I’m being the loving and the doting girlfriend, but you just treat me with disdain.

Nick: Loving and doting? That’s what you think you’re being by making jokes at my father’s expense in front of my mother, with Jack having a front-row seat and you rubbing your obvious flirtation in my face.

Phyllis: Oh, wait, wait. That’s not flirtation.

Nick: Then what is it? Because as far as I can tell, every time we have the smallest of conflicts, you go running off to Jack.

Phyllis: You want to know why I go running to Jack? Because if we’re not having sex or playing video games, you treat me horribly. You push me away. It’s like you don’t even care about my opinions or my ideas.

Nick: Because your opinions are always saying that I should ignore my family or completely disengage from them, and that is not an option.

Phyllis: Oh, my god, that is such a lie! I am turning myself into a pretzel helping you deal with your family.

Nick: By asking me to cut myself off from them. You have no appreciation for how hard that would be for me.

Phyllis: My god, don’t even say that to me!

[ Exhales sharply ] You think that I don’t know what it’s like being connected to the Newman family? My advice comes from hard-learned truths. Being associated with single members of your family, particularly your father, so don’t you dare say that to me. Have sympathy for me! Okay? But you don’t, and it doesn’t matter. I turn the other cheek because i want to be with you.

Nick: Oh, don’t do me any favors. You pretending to be superior or taking the high road is absurd.

Phyllis: Okay, this is not gonna work. It’s over. It’s done. Seriously. We keep on telling each other that we don’t have to change, but you see, Nick, I’ve changed. I want more than sex and video games, and, oh, keeping it fluffy and light. I want more than that. I want a commitment, I want a confidant, I want someone who respects me. I want an ally.

Nick: And I want you to stop hating my family.

Phyllis: I hate your family. But not for the reasons that you think. I hate your family…’cause you always choose them over me.

Nick: I chose you over my sister when you had that battle for your hotel.

Phyllis: I know. I know you did, and that was great. It was great, and I thought there was gonna be a happy ending, but there’s not, because, look, you’re so miserable. You’re miserable because you’re out of sorts with your dad and your sister, and you’re so jealous of Adam. And you just want to be the golden boy. You just want to save the day. And you will always go back to roost, always. And you will sacrifice me and you will sacrifice our relationship because of it. I can’t do this anymore. I’m in so much pain. I can’t do this anymore.

[ Exhales sharply ]

Nick: I know.

Phyllis: [ Exhales sharply ]

[ Cellphone rings ]

Nick: I mean, it’s perfect timing. You say you want a confidant and an ally, well, the first sign of trouble, you always turn to him.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

 

Devon: I can’t believe it. I just can’t believe that chance could be dead.

Mariah: “Could be”? Christine brought definitive proof — the watch, the wedding ring.

Tessa: I mean, it’s still a possibility that he survived the explosion. He might’ve just not been wearing them when it happened.

Mariah: Do you believe that?

Devon: Abby does. And I think that she’s really gonna need our help accepting the truth if she’s wrong.

Ashley: Bye, sharon. Thanks again.

Victor: [ Sighs ] Sharon is a good listener. Hopefully she was able to help abby.

Ashley: I hope so. I hope abby can get some sleep. I hate this, feeling so helpless.

Victor: I know, I know. Been a long time since I’ve seen you helpless.

Ashley: I could say the same thing about you. You, who always controls every single situation.

Victor: You know, all the money and power I have means nothing right now. I so want to be able to fix it for her.

Ashley: I do, too.

Victor: Yeah.

Ashley: She’s in agony. Poor thing. She’s just suffering, and there’s nothing I can do to alleviate it. It’s like a mother’s worst nightmare.

Mariah: Look at you. You are such a brave little boy. Too bad that you’ve had to be. You had to be bombarded by my stress hormones when we were in that room, and I did my best to keep my fear and anxiety to a minimum, ’cause I knew when i got upset, it would make you feel upset. Do you think he’s okay?

Tessa: I mean, he was cooing just a minute ago. I think he’s perfect in every way. But, mariah, I think that this situation might have brought up some trauma for you.

Victor: I think you should know that I called nate hastings, okay? I asked him to be here. I think we need to have a doctor around. Especially someone who knows abby and knows the family, and I’d rather err on the side of caution, you know?

Ashley: Think that’s a good idea?

Victor: Yeah.

Ashley: I hope it’s not necessary.

Victor: [ Sighs ]

Ashley: I mean, look, I know it’s not rational to think that maybe abby would have a break with reality the way that I did, but I can’t help but be a little afraid.

Victor: I remember that.

Ashley: Well…

Victor: Hope she doesn’t have to go through that. But if she does, you and I will be here to help her through it.

Ashley: Yeah. Whether she wants us to or not.

Victor: And when she gets to the other side of it, hopefully soon, she’ll realize that you and I did not abandon her.

Ashley: I’m gonna go sit with her.

Victor: Okay. Some people have joint pain,

provided by…

Mariah: I appreciate your concern, but I’m fine, okay? Can you please tell her that I’m fine?

Devon: I mean, I think she knows, but this has been hard on everybody, so you can’t blame her for looking out for you. She’s very good at it.

Mariah: Yes, she is. Tessa’s the best, and she knows me better than anyone. But this isn’t about me, you know? It’s about this little boy right here. I just want to make sure that he doesn’t absorb all of the negativity in that house.

Devon: Yeah, no, I know what you mean, but, you know, we have to trust that ashley and the rest of the family are gonna be able to take care of dominic while abby’s going through all this.

Tessa: He’s going to be loved and taken care of.

Devon: There’s really nothing to worry about at all. You know he’s in good hands.

Tessa: They’re not gonna let anything bad happen to him, and I’m not gonna let anything bad happen to you. So maybe we can go back to our hotel and just rest up a little bit?

Mariah: Yes. Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. Soon, though, ’cause while dominic’s here, I want to stay. I want to be here if he needs me.

[ Door closes ]

Victor: Nate. Thank you for coming on such short notice, okay?

Nate: Of course. How is abby?

Victor: Not well. Sharon was with her earlier and thought that she was in a state of denial. She’s in the kitchen right now with ashley making some tea. If you don’t mind my saying so, I think that she may need some, you know, low-dose anti-anxiety pills. But that’s your expertise.

Nate: Whatever abby needs, I’m here for.

Victor: Now, ashley and abby will return momentarily, so make yourself comfortable. If you need me, I’ll be in the den, alright? Thanks, man.

Nate: [ Sighs ]

[ Clears throat ]

[ Exhales sharply ]

Abby: Nate, what are you doing here?

Nate: Hey, I’m sorry to hear about what you’re going through.

Abby: Did they call you to give me a sedative or something?

Ashley: Maybe this isn’t a good time.

Abby: What my mom is trying to say is that sharon just left, and that was enough. I don’t need a doctor.

Nate: You’re right, I was called here as a doctor, but as your friend, I’ve been where you are. I just came by to talk, see how you were doing.

Abby: That’s all?

Nate: You don’t even have to respond if you don’t want to. Just hang out with me for a few minutes.

Abby: [ Sighs ] Mom, I’m gonna talk to nate. Could you just stay close by?

[ Sighs ]

Nate: [ Clears throat ] You think chance is still out there.

Abby: You said that like a statement, not a question. And this isn’t a matter of denial. Look, yes, they found his watch and ring at the explosion site, but they didn’t find him. So I can hear the news and I can hold his ring in my hand. But in my heart, I just — I don’t think…he’s alive. I know it. He’s not dead.

Devon: So ashley just said that nate is there with abby right now.

Tessa: Oh, that’s good. He’s a calming presence.

Devon: Yeah. And abby is asking me to bring the baby back home.

Mariah: Do you think that’s a good idea?

Devon: I do, actually, ’cause his mother and his grandparents are ready to take care of him.

Tessa: Yeah, he belongs at home.

Mariah: Yeah. Yeah, you’re right. You sure you don’t need help getting him back to the chancellor house?

Devon: No, no, I’m fine. I appreciate it. I left bread crumbs.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Tessa: Can I take you back to our suite now?

Devon: I promise you, you have nothing to worry about. That little boy knows what strength and safety feels like because you protected him for all that time. Don’t forget that. Let some other people look after him now.

Mariah: Okay. Let’s go. Alright, buddy. I’ll see you soon, okay?

Nate: I know how you feel. You know I lost my fiancéE. I remember how hard it was having to admit she was gone.

Abby: Yeah, you told me how awful that was for you. But this is not the same situation. You — you saw carolyn. You knew the truth. I don’t have that. Yes, other people think chance is gone, but…I can’T.

Nate: Yeah, I get it. Having to accept the news or the evidence that they’ve given you, your husband can’t come back, right? I think it’s common when we lose someone abruptly like this. We don’t want to let go of hope.

Abby: No, I can’t let go. And, yes, I have had my moments of doubt, like when christine gave me this. But I was in shock. And now I see things clearly. I mean, really, nothing has really changed. I mean, chance was gone before, and he’s — he’s still gone now, but…you know, he promised that he was gonna come home. And he iS. I know he is. So what I really need now is to just have faith in my husband and have faith in us.

Nate: Yeah. I understand.

Abby: Oh, stop. Stop trying to placate me.

Nate: [ Sighs ] Don’t settle. Start your day with secret.

Nate: Can you hear yourself?

Abby: Well, it’s normal to get defensive when people refuse to believe what you’re saying.

Nate: It’s also normal to overreact when you’re running on fumes. Have you eaten?

Abby: I had a sandwich earlier.

Nate: Really? Or is that you’re telling everyone? Look, if what you’re saying is true and chance is still out there, then you owe it to him and the baby to stay healthy. When did you last sleep?

Abby: That doesn’t matter.

Nate: It does. You need to eat and you need some rest. I’m having some anti-anxiety medication delivered. It’s a low dose, but it’ll calm you down and help you sleep.

Abby: Look, I appreciate it, but I need to stay alert and awake, for dominic.

Ashley: Honey. I promise that I’m gonna be right here for the baby as soon as devon brings him back home, okay? Could you please go upstairs and sleep?

Abby: Fine, fine, but I’m gonna rest here on the couch in the living room. That way, I’m close by in case we hear anything.

Ashley: Yes. Please just close your eyes and rest.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ]

Sharon: Oh, hi, devon.

Devon: Hey, sharon. How’d everything go with abby?

Sharon: Um…well, you know the stages of grief, right?

Devon: I do.

Sharon: And the first one is denial. That’s right where she’s stuck, and I’m afraid that it’s gonna take her a while to get out of it.

Devon: You think she’s that bad?

Sharon: I really wish that we could fix someone with just a touch or a word, I mean, especially in times like these. It’s so frustrating. She won’t even talk about her feelings. She won’t acknowledge them. There’s just nothing I can do.

Devon: I know. I do know. But I think that I may have something that will bring you some joy.

Mariah: No, no, there’s no need to send this to jack. Why don’t I take a look at the numbers and see if I can 5% out of the budget? And if I can’t, then I can bring him in. Okay? Yeah, give me like 30 minutes. Cool. Bye.

[ Sighs ]

Tessa: Everything okay at work?

Mariah: Yeah, it’s fine. I’m just trying to distract myself with budgets and deadlines.

Tessa: But your mind is really elsewhere?

Mariah: Yeah. On the baby. I just — I hate leaving him. What?

Tessa: Nothing.

Mariah: You’re staring at me.

Tessa: I mean, I find you very attractive.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ] Thank you. I appreciate that. But…it’s not why you’re looking at me. I promise you I am fighting all of my urges when it comes to the baby, but you still think I’m slipping, am I right?

Tessa: I’m a little worried. You got pretty worked up at crimson lights. It seems as if you feel you are the only one who can properly take care of dominic.

Mariah: I can’t help wanting to be there for him. I thought you understood that i have a bond with dominic.

Tessa: I do. But I’m concerned that that urge, that instinct to just wrap him up and shield him from danger, it’s — it’s gonna cause you pain. And that really breaks my heart.

Nate: So you were hungry.

Abby: I was. And, um…sure, I will take the medication. But honestly, I’m feeling tired, so I think that I’ll be able to get some rest on my own.

Nate: That’d be good. I just want to tell you i understand how much chance meant to you. When you and I were together, you made it clear you didn’t want anything serious because you weren’t ready, after your prior relationship had fallen apart. And then chance came into your life. I watched as you fell hard and fast. That love is still there, and it will always be a part of you.

Abby: Thank you, but, uh, you’re speaking like it’s already over. Like we know chance is gone. But we don’t know that. No one knows that for certain.

Nate: You’re right. My mistake. Get some rest, abby.

Abby: Chance, you can’t be gone. With downy infusions, let the scent set the mood.

Victor: Thank you for coming, nate.

Nate: I hope I was of some help.

Victor: You bet.

Nate: The medication i ordered should be delivered soon. Make sure abby follows the instructions.

Ashley: Absolutely.

Victor: Appreciate it.

Ashley: Thanks again.

Victor: Thank you.

Ashley: [ Sighs ]

Victor: [ Sighs ] You need some rest, okay?

Ashley: Mm, I’m too wound up. I think I’m gonna make some food. If we eat it, great. If we don’t, that’s okay, too. I just got to keep myself busy.

Victor: Okay.

Ashley: You’ll watch over her?

Victor: You bet.

Ashley: Thanks.

Victor: [ Sighs ]

Abby: Chance, where are you? I know you wouldn’t leave me when we just started a family. So that means that you’re out there. So I’ll find you.

Sharon: Who’s a big boy? Who’s a big, happy, smiley boy?

[ Both laugh ] You were right, devon. Just spending a few moments with him, and I’m in a better mood.

Devon: I know. He really is magic.

Sharon: And hopefully he can bring some of that joy to his mother. She really needs it.

Devon: I know she does. I actually have dominic right now because abby didn’t want him around her in the state that she’s in. I was just about to bring him home before you came back.

Sharon: He’s lucky he has you in his life. You can look after him.

Devon: I’d argue and say that I’m the lucky one, sharon. Just getting to spend time with him and getting to learn about him and all of his, you know, different moods and different expressions. It’s like making up for the time that I never got to spend with my child with hilary. I missed out on a lot.

Sharon: Kind of like how dominic will miss out on spending time with chance. You two are a perfect match.

Devon: Yeah, I guess so. I just wish it didn’t have to be this way. Chance never getting to meet his son and abby never getting to say goodbye to her husband, it’s just — it’s unfair to everyone.

Tessa: Was that too much honesty?

Mariah: No. I needed to know if I was reverting back with the baby, and I guess I was.

Tessa: I know I probably shouldn’t be worried, but I am.

Mariah: I know. And I love you for that. But I really don’t think you need to be.

Tessa: But am I right?

Mariah: About what?

Tessa: Do you think that you’re the only one who can properly take care of dominic?

Mariah: [ Sighs ] I — I can’t say that for sure. I mean, of course there are other people who are qualified to take care of him, but…

Tessa: You think your connection to him counts for more.

Mariah: No, I didn’t say that.

Tessa: You didn’t have to. I know you.

Mariah: I’m the one who carried him for all those months, who felt him growing and changing inside of me. I was the one who was with him all the time when we were locked in that room.

Tessa: Those were unique experiences that will give you two a lifelong bond. But other people have special connections to dominic.

Mariah: I understand, tessa. Abby is his mother, but she needs a break right now. And of course dominic wouldn’t be here without devon’s contribution, but I — it’s not the same as mine, and ashley and nina love their grandson.

Tessa: But not the way you do.

Mariah: I don’t know if they could.

Tessa: You realize that’s not your call to make?

Mariah: Yes, of course. Abby gets to decide. Even if she’s not in the best frame of mind to make decisions right now.

Tessa: Again, that’s not for you to judge. Even if abby isn’t 100% right now, dominic is not going to be neglected.

Mariah: Tessa, I understand that there are plenty of other people who are qualified to take care of him. But I have thoughts and I have feelings, and…in my heart, I just… I just don’t think this is the way that it should be.

Abby: This is where I first saw you when you came back to town. Phillip chancellor iv. Fancy name for a down-to-earth guy. It was here. You came back to town and fell into my life. The hostage crisis, remember? Yeah, you sent me a text and you asked me to play along. You wanted me to help you distract the bad guy. It was terrifying and thrilling. I looked over at the security camera and I nodded to let you know that we were in sync. Chance, I need you here. I need you here watching me. Show me that we’re in this together.

will continue. -Hi mommy! -Hi honey!

Sharon: Abby has to find a way to move on from chance. I’m afraid that’s gonna be hard with the baby around the house. She’ll have to focus on the beginning of the baby’s life while trying to move on from the end of chance’S.

Devon: Yeah, that doesn’t sound easy.

Sharon: Well, ideally, the baby would help her get past the grief, you know, would give her a purpose. But sometimes when you suffer a loss like this, it can be hard just to get out of bed.

Devon: Oh, believe me, I know exactly what you’re talking about. I fell apart when I lost hilary.

Sharon: Well, when you have to take care of another human being, that can give you a reason to take your life back. You know, you have no choice. You have to raise a baby.

Devon: Yeah. I mean, you and I know that, sharon. I just hope that abby doesn’t go through a self-destructive phase. ‘Cause like you said, she has to be there for dominic.

Sharon: She’s only at the beginning of what lies ahead for her and the baby.

Abby: This is where you busted me for faking a theft at the grand phoenix. You caught me red-handed. But we had chemistry. And it was fun and flirtatious and sexy. And we agreed that we would make great partners, remember? So I hired you as head of security at the hotel to keep you from working dangerous cases. You were supposed to leave the danger behind. You were supposed to stay in genoa city with me. Our first kiss. [ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ] We were so good together. You confessed that you spent the whole dinner wanting to reach across the table and kiss me. I wanted that, too.

[ Sniffles ] So please, chance, come kiss me now.

[ Wind blowing ] Chance? Chance?! We came here after that date where we went ice skating. It was freezing outside. It was the first time that we made love. Remember that?

[ Sighs ] Of course you do. I skipped work and we laid in bed all day and we traded stories about our scars. Yours were from cases. Danger that you were supposed to leave behind. Chance, how could you go back to that? How could you stay away for so long? Damn it, chance! You made promises. You made promises right here. On our wedding day. You told me that I changed you. And we made vows and we talked about our future. A family. How could you leave? How could you just leave me and have me go through with the surrogacy? No. No, you are too good and you are too honest for it to end this way. So I know that you are gonna keep your word. Chance, if there’s a reason why you can’t come back, if there’s something preventing you from coming home, I will help you. I will find you.

Mariah: [ Sighs ]

Tessa: So you think that dominic would rather have you take care of him.

Mariah: No, that’s not what I’m saying. I’m only trying to say that i have feelings. I know you and devon are worried about my attachment to the baby, but I’m not even thinking about what I want or need. This is about him. He just lost a father that he’s never going to know. He’s living in a house of grief and trauma.

Tessa: He is safe. He is cared for.He is loved.

Mariah: I know, but this is not the life that I promised him when we were locked in that room together. This wasn’t the deal.

Tessa: I get that. But no one expected any of this. Abby certainly didn’t want things to turn out this way, but life is unpredictable. You can’t control the future.

Mariah: No, but there are some things that I can control. I can keep him safe.

Tessa: There’s nothing you can do about his father dying unexpectedly.

Mariah: That is exactly why i feel like I have failed, tessa. I didn’t protect him.

Find your rhythm.

Devon: Thank you, sharon.

Nate: Hey, guys. I just saw abby.

Sharon: Nate, I hope things went better for you with her than they did for me.

Devon: How’s she doing?

Nate: I’m worried. She’s been under long-term stress with her husband gone, brand-new baby, mariah’s abduction. Now the biggest crisis of all. It’s a lot to handle mentally, and eventually it starts to break you down physically. Right now she needs rest and nourishment. Luckily, I was able to convince her into eating something and taking a nap.

Devon: Well, that’s a good sign.

Nate: It is, but it’s just a start.

Sharon: Well, it won’t take the grief away, but maybe she’ll be able to face it.

Devon: Hey, what do you — what do you think about me bringing dominic back to the house and her being around the baby?

Nate: Think it’d be a good idea.

Devon: ‘Cause I’m worried. I’m worried about him absorbing all that negative energy in the house.

Nate: Uh, it’s a concern, but it’s a question of balance. It’ll be good for abby to see him. Plus, she has plenty of family there if she gets emotional. So shouldn’t be an issue. Dominic will be in good hands.

Devon: Alright, that’s good to hear. I’ll take him back, but I’ll probably — I’ll stop and take him for a walk in the park first.

Mariah: I agreed to be abby and chance’s surrogate. I was happy to do it. I was carrying that baby because I thought that I was helping to build a family. Mom, dad, baby — the three of them together. And he was gonna have a golden childhood, doting parents. And now he’s surrounded by grief and loss, and I didn’t keep my promise to always protect him.

Tessa: Yes, you have. You’ve gone above and beyond for him. You even turned down a trip to italy just to be around to make sure he’s okay.

Mariah: I am his godmother. I’m a friend of the family, and I can’t even be there for him the way that I should be because I’m not his…

Tessa: Are you saying that you wish he was your son and not abby’s?

Mariah: I just can’t help thinking that that’s the way that it — it should’ve been. That I should be his mom.

Tessa: I don’t know what to say.

Mariah: I’m not acting on that feeling, and I know it’s fear talking. I know it’s my own issues. But you asked what’s going on in my head and my heart, and i wanted to be completely honest with you, and…

[ Sighs ] It’s not right and it’s not rational. I know that. But it’s a fleeting thought that comes into my brain once in a while, and — and…it’s there.

Tessa: Well…let’s examine that and then figure out how to proceed.

Mariah: Uh, I thought you were gonna run out of here and head screaming for the hills.

Tessa: Never.

Mariah: My god, you have the patience of a saint.

Tessa: True, but…only with you. Because I love you.

Mariah: I love you, too.

Tessa: So…we are gonna work through this together.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Mariah: Um… oh, my gosh, it’s work. They need these numbers. I…I should probably do this.

Tessa: I mean, you really have to do that right now?

Mariah: It’s only gonna take a few minutes.

Abby: Everything always leads me back here, doesn’t it? Why doesn’t it do the same for you? How can you stay away? This is where I first told you that I loved you. And where you proposed. This place — this place has special meaning to us. Chancellor park. You wouldn’t just leave this behind. I know that you’re here.

[ Wind blowing ] God. How could you leave us to go on a dangerous mission when you knew it could end like this, that you might never come home? You wouldn’t break my heart like that, would you? Didn’t you love me enough to stay? To not take that risk? I believed in you, chance. I believed in us. I don’t know what to believe now.

[ Sighs ] Advanced non-small cell lung cancer can change everything.

[ Dominic crying ]

Abby: Dominic?

Devon: Hey, I’m sorry. I just put him down and he started crying. I think he missed you. It’s okay.

Abby: Hey. Hey. It’s okay. Mommy’s got you. It’s alright. It’s okay. Shh.

Adam: Hi, there. Was it something that I said?

Sally: I’m just trying to determine which one of your multiple personalities I’m dealing with. It’s a little guessing game I
play with myself.

Adam: Oh. I see.

Sally: ‘Cause sometimes I’m almost certain that I’ve run into friendly, funny, down-to-earth Adam, and then, no, he turns out to be [Clears throat] Officious Adam, busy CEO and all-around important guy with no time to waste on a
lowly peon like me.

Adam: [ Sighs ] I was — I was too abrupt with you yesterday. Although I did apologize, or try to.

Sally: Ah, yes, mea culpa Adam. An intriguing new addition to the cast of characters.

Adam: How many are there?

Sally: It’s an ever-changing landscape.

Adam: Wow. You know, that, it sounds kind of fascinating.

Sally: Fortunately, there is a fool-proof way to settle this. I will just invite to join me for lunch and see which Adam
fields the request.

Adam: I’d love to have lunch with you, but I’m booked today. I am actually here for a meeting.

Sally: Damn. I knew it. Now I owe myself 20 bucks.

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

Adam: I really hope you’re not taking it personally that i have a business meeting.

Sally: No. I am not that girl. Like I told you, this is just a game to me. I’m going for best three out of five.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Sally: No, wait. This might’ve been my third rejection — not that I’m keeping track.

Adam: Oh, no. Of course not, because we made a mutual agreement to keep things strictly professional between us.

Sally: Yes, and in retrospect, I’m so glad we did that. That way, I don’t get saddled with your chronic mood swings.

Adam: Okay, well, you are now making me wish my schedule was clear because you would be a much more entertaining lunch date than the person I’m meeting with.

Sally: Well, you could always bail. You know, things do come up.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Sadly, I’m afraid I can’t this time.

Sally: Mm. My, must be VIP.

Jack: Well, great minds think alike.

Nikki: Well, hell.

Jack: I’m glad I ran into you.

Nikki: Oh, yeah?

Jack: Well, I’ve been looking for a chance to tell you how impressed I was with the job you did organizing victoria and ashland’s wedding.

Nikki: Thank you so much, jack. I was just relieved that everything went smoothly.

Jack: You made it look effortless. No small feat. I have some idea of how much planning goes into that, and, wow, it was worth it. A delight, beginning to end.

Nikki: Well, I wanted to do it for them. They’ll always have those memories.

Jack: And those memories are important, especially given the special challenge those two are facing.

Nikki: Yes. I am grateful that victoria was able to convince ashland to fight his cancer. I know how difficult the treatment has been.

Jack: Well, we’re all praying those treatments are effective. I saw in italy the reunion between ashland and harrison, and it brought home just how close those two are. It’s a lot for my grandson to understand and accept if things don’t go as we hoped.

Nikki: Oh, god, I hate to think what that would do to victoria. I have to admit, I had reservations about this pairing in the beginning.

Jack: Given the groom’s well-deserved reputation as a ruthless businessman? Yeah, I got to see a little bit of that when he came after jabot.

Nikki: Well, he seems completely devoted to victoria, and that’s something that has been lacking in her life.

Jack: But you’re still worried about the heartache she could be facing.

Nikki: She’s a realist. She knows loss is a possibility.

Jack: Well, I respect that courage. Nothing is more important than the time we spend with those we love, even if that time is fleeting. She seems to have internalized that. I mean, she doesn’t seem to have any regrets.

Nikki: I haven’t heard any, but…

Jack: But as a devoted mother, you can’t help worrying.

Nikki: Well, it’s one thing to take those vows — “in sickness and in health” — but it’s quite another to navigate a possibly fatal disease. With all the whirl of the wedding prep and finalizing the merger, I don’t know that victoria has had time to sit down and really think about what could happen. But it’s gonna hit her eventually, and honestly, I’m dreading it.

Victor: Do you think that is chance’s ring?

Abby: [ Gasps ]

Victor: Sweetheart.

Abby: [ Sobbing ]

Victor: It’s okay, my love. It’s okay.

Adam: Hi, there. Was it something that I said?

Sally: I’m just trying to determine which one of your multiple personalities I’m dealing with. It’s a little guessing game i play with myself.

Adam: Oh. I see.

Sally: ‘Cause sometimes I’m almost certain that I’ve run into friendly, funny, down-to-earth adam, and then, no, he turns out to be

[Clears throat] Officious adam, busy ceo and all-around important guy with no time to waste on a lowly peon like me.

Adam: I’d love to have lunch with you, but I’m booked today. I am actually here for a meeting.

Sally: Damn. I knew it. Now I owe myself 20 bucks.

Adam: [ Chuckles ]

Nick: You’re hesitating. Why? It’s a simple question. Are we in this together or not?

Phyllis: No, I’m just thrown that you even have to ask me that. Of course I’m in this with you. Why do you think I’m working so hard? I mean, it doesn’t feel good now, but it will turn out good. I know that.

Nick: Agreed.

Phyllis: Can we table this? I…I’m still sort of hung over from last night. I’m not at my best.

Nick: Yeah, to be continued.

Phyllis: Thank you.

Nick: Well, I bet our brunch is cold. How about if I take you out to lunch?

Phyllis: Thank you. Um, I’M…

Adam: [ Sighs ] Sadly, I’m afraid I can’t this time.

Sally: Mm. My, must be vip.

Adam: Something like that.

Sally: Anyone I know? What if we play 20 questions? What do I win if I guess it right?

Adam: It’s no one you’ve met.

Sally: Is he bigger than a bread box?

Adam: Well, he — or she — will be here soon, so enjoy your day.

Sally: Wow, smooth. You’re really good at this. All sounds so mysterious. Makes me wonder if it has something to do with that missing man, the one that billy was talking about. What was his name again, hanes? No, oh, gaines. Oops. Guess I wasn’t supposed to bring his name up anymore.

Nikki: Well, this has been such a great break, but I really need to get back to the office.

Jack: You know what? I came here to get a sandwich to take it back to the office and sit at my desk and eat lunch. To heck with that. What do you say you and I have a proper lunch together?

Nikki: I’d love to.

Jack: Fantastic. You pick the place. Though I hear there’s a great little moroccan place that just opened over on chestnut.

Nikki: Alright, now, wait a minute. You didn’t give me a chance to say “but.” I have a full inbox I have to get back to.

Jack: Oh, that will keep, i promise you.

Nikki: Jack.

Jack: Hey, we have just pulled off — you and I — one of the most satisfying feats in all of parenthood — launching our children off into fulfilling marriages with people they love and cherish.

Nikki: [ Laughs ] Well, I don’t know if we can take credit for that.

Jack: Yeah, maybe not, but we could use this opportunity to celebrate our great good fortune.

Nikki: Well, you put it that way, it’s hard to refuse. So I won’T. I’d love to have lunch with you, jack.

Jack: Fantastic.

Nikki: [ Chuckles ] But society is closer to newman tower, so do you mind going there?

Jack: Society it is. Shall we?

Nikki: Okay.

Jack: Here, let me get your coat.

Nikki: Thank you.

Jack: And your coat is right here.

Nikki: Thank you, sir.

Jack: You bet. Follow you.

Victor: I know how difficult this is for you, my sweetheart. We’ll take care of you, okay?

Abby: [ Sniffles ] This doesn’t — this can’t be real. There’s got to be some sort of explanation. Chance — he can’t be gone.

Ashley: Hey.

Victor: Hi, sweetheart.

Ashley: What is it? Is something going on?

Victor: A wedding ring was discovered and recovered in the rubble. And christine gave it to abby.

Ashley: Oh, god, no.

Victor: Belongs to chance.

Ashley: But that’s not necessarily proof, is it? I mean, he could’ve taken it off. Did they find anything else?

Christine: I was informed that being a married man was part of chance’s cover story, so he never took it off.

Ashley: Has search and rescue found anything?

Christine: Ashley, given the force of the explosion, positive identification of any of the remains is just gonna take some time.

Ashley: Abby. Honey? Honey, I’m right here.

[ Dominic crying ]

Devon: It’s okay.

Abby: [ Sniffles ] Oh, dominic. Shh.

[ Sniffles ] It’s gonna be okay.

[ Sniffles ] Shh.

We gave new zzzquil pure zzzs restorative herbal sleep

Adam: I noticed you ordered your food to go. Hope that wasn’t on my account.

Sally: I had already planned on working through lunch. I am still getting inquiries about victoria’s wedding dress.

Adam: Well, I’m not surprised about that.

Sally: But this kind of response from the fashion press and retail buyers, not to mention the dozens of brides that somehow got my work e-mail and are now clamoring for a copy. It’s just far beyond anything i ever envisioned.

Adam: Well, it sounds incredibly gratifying.

Sally: It is. It’s like a big, flashing neon sign telling me that I was right not to give up on my creative endeavors.

Adam: Well, speaking for newman fashions, it’s a good thing that you didn’t because I’m really looking forward to seeing what you and chloe come up with next.

Sally: What about chelsea? When she comes back in town, is she still planning on coming on board? ‘Cause it would be really great to have another fashion genius in the house to kick around ideas.

Adam: Um, I don’t know when or if chelsea’s gonna be up to working again.

Sally: Should I not have mentioned anything?

Adam: No, it’s fine. I hope she comes back to genoa city and she’s ready to pick up her life again. Sooner the better, as far as I’m concerned, so we can move on and — and, um… well, the person that I’m meeting with has arrived, so…

Sally: And looks like my food is here, so have fun with your not-at-all mysterious meeting.

Adam: Thanks. I’ll catch you later.

Sally: Thank you.

Ashley: You guys, I think abby could use a little space.

Devon: Okay, how about I take dominic out for a walk, then, for a little bit?

Mariah: Fresh air, I’m in.

Ashley: That’s a great idea. It’s nice outside.

Abby: No, please —

Ashley: Abby, honey. Everybody loves that little boy so much. They’re gonna take such good care of him, okay? Just like your father and I are gonna take good care of you.

Devon: Hey, we’re not gonna be gone long, I promise you.

Abby: Okay, um, use an extra blanket.

Devon: Sure, of course.

Mariah: Of course. Try to rest, okay?

Abby: Yeah.

Victor: Can you stick around? I have some questions, okay?

Christine: Sure, of course.

Devon: Hey, would you mind grabbing the diaper bag?

Mariah: Uh, yeah, absolutely.

Devon: Come on.

Phyllis: A flaming gorilla? Ooh, I want that. They put rum on top and then they set it on fire. I want a drink that’s on fire. Hey, if you clench your jaw a little harder, we’re gonna need an emergency dentist. What’s adam up to?

Nick: It’s who he’s with.

Phyllis: Who is that guy?

Nick: That’s one of my dad’s most trusted private investigators. He’s been on his security team for, like, ever. You see the way they’re talking and their body language? They’re clearly scheming about something and they’re not even trying to hide it.

Phyllis: Mm. Mm-hmm.

Nick: What’s that? “Mm-hmm,” what is that?

Phyllis: It’s just “uh-huh.” You know what it is. Come on. I’m not gonna say anything. I’m not gonna do that, because we’ve just gone through it this morning. I’m not gonna continue a pattern, you know, when you ask me what’s going on, and I say something supportive about you, and then you misinterpret and then we get into it. Hey, I’m gonna change the pattern. That’s refreshing, right?

Nick: I don’t want you to feel like you’re on eggshells around me. I want you to feel free to speak your mind.

Phyllis: Oh, do you?

Nick: Yes.

Phyllis: Really, you do? Okay, alright. Well, remember you said that.

Nick: I’m serious. If you got something to say, then say it. I’m not gonna hold it against you. I would like your unvarnished opinion.

Phyllis: You want my unvarnished opinion. Okay. Remember that you said that. Who cares what’s going on over there? Who cares who adam is talking to and what they’re up to? Can you just let it go and put your attention on us? Can you do that? My hygienist cleans with a round head.

Phyllis: Okay, I see you don’t love my suggestion. No problem.

Nick: Alright, do you remember how annoyed you were with me when I kept telling you to back off sally and tara, but you ended up being right about them?

Phyllis: Not even the same. I was trying to protect our daughter is what I was doing. What are you protecting? I mean, who cares what your dad and adam are plotting? Who cares?

Nick: [ Sighs ] Well, that’s not the way I look at it.

Phyllis: You know what? For once, you know what I would love? That you protect yourself. You protect yourself and just take yourself out of this situation. That’s all. I mean, that’s the advice I gave you in italy, and you didn’t take it then. I don’t really expect you to take it now, but you asked how i felt, and so I’m telling you. That’s all. Who cares about your dad and adam? Let them deal with the consequences of their shady dealings.

Nick: Do you know how many times I’ve tried that? More times than I can count. Ultimately, things always get blown up into this massive crisis, and then I get sucked right back in ’cause I got to protect the people I love, which is my sisters and my mother and my children. So don’t you think it’s best if I do everything I can to avert the mess that is brewing rather than wait for the other shoe to drop?

Phyllis: No. I think that you would be better if you only intermittently obsess with your family. That’s all. I’d be happy if, between disasters, you put more attention on our relationship. That’s all.

Nick: You know what? Let’s, uh… let’s get out of here. There’s lots of other places in town to eat lunch.

Phyllis: Seriously?

Nick: Yeah. I promised you a, you know, a nice time where we’re not worrying about everything that’s going on with us. That’s not gonna happen here because of adam. So let’s go.

Phyllis: Alright.

Jack: Hey!

Nikki: Hi.

Jack: Having lunch at the bar today?

Nikki: [ Chuckles ]

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ]

Nick: Yeah. I mean, we were, but we’re gonna change venues. Adam’s here, and I don’t really want to stick around, so…

Nikki: Oh, well, I hope you’ll reconsider. Jack and I are just grabbing a bite. Why don’t you join us, as long as jack doesn’t mind?

Jack: Not in the least.

Phyllis: Is that a singular “you” or a plural “you”?

Nikki: Uh…oh, “will you have lunch?” Plural, of course. Why?

Phyllis: Okay. I just — I didn’t know because our history, that’s all.

Nikki: Well, we got along very well in italy. And I must admit, I do have an ulterior motive.

Phyllis: Of course.

Nikki: Well, I’m hoping to convince my son to settle his differences with victoria, and i think I’ll have a better shot at it if I have your support.

Phyllis: Oh, yes, definitely. A double-team.

Nick: Look, I appreciate the offer, but phyllis and I need to talk about some stuff and —

Phyllis: You know what? I would love it if you made peace with your sister. Really, so thank you for the invitation. We’ll accept.

Christine: Well, I’m afraid that’s really all the information I have at this point.

Victor: [ Exhales sharply ] When do you anticipate getting an official notification?

Christine: Days, maybe longer. It just depends on the recovery effort. In the meantime, I’ll keep working my contacts in D.C.

Victor: Please keep me updated.

Christine: Absolutely.

Victor: Okay.

Christine: I trust you’ll do the same.

Victor: You can count on it, okay?

Christine: Thank you.

Victor: By the way, are you gonna contact nina?

Christine: Uh…yeah. It’s gonna be rough. You know, chance — chance was the light of her life.

Victor: I know. I know. You know, um…he was a hell of a guy. I was proud to call him my son-in-law.

Christine: Again, victor, I’m so sorry for your loss, and if there’s anything more I can do, please don’t hesitate to call.

Victor: You do the same, okay? Take care.

Christine: Yeah, thank you.

Victor: I’ll get the door.

Ashley: Do you want to lie down? I can go upstairs and I can lie down with you and hold you like I used to do when you were a little girl.

Abby: [ Sniffles ]

Ashley: Everybody’s gone and it’s just your dad and I here, so if you need anything or want anything, and you know what, abby? You don’t have to rein it in. If you want to scream at the top of your lungs, if you want to stand up and if you want to just tear this entire room apart, you can do whatever you want. Please just tell us what you need, honey.

Abby: I need chance. I need my husband. People everywhere living with type 2 diabetes

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Abby: No. No, if… if were chance were gone, i would… I would know it. I would feel it. I would feel something.

[ Sighs ] Oh, my god.

Ashley: What?

Abby: Nina — does she know?

Victor: Christine is probably talking to her as we speak.

Abby: She’s gonna be heartbrokeN. I mean, she loves him so much. He’s — he’s her baby. Same way I feel about dominic.

Ashley: She’s our family now, honey. We’ll make sure she knows she doesn’t have to go through this alone, okay?

[ Doorbell rings ]

Abby: Oh, god.

Victor: I’ll get it. I’ll get it.

Abby: I don’t want to see anyone.

Victor: I’ll get it.

Abby: Oh, my god.

Victor: Sharon.

Sharon: Mariah texted me chance may have been killed.

Victor: Come in.

[ Sighs ] There was an explosion at the safe house where chance was doing his undercover work in spain.

Sharon: A bomb?

Victor: Yeah. Place was blown to smithereens. The only things left over were some personal effects.

Sharon: I’m so sorry.

Ashley: Hi.

Victor: Sharon came to offer some comfort to abby, okay?

Ashley: Oh, that’s very kind of you. Um…abby’s in shock. I’m not even sure if anything we’re saying is registering with her.

Sharon: I understand. Trauma like this can be very disorienting.

Victor: I know sharon offered some enormous support to victoria after she had been attacked.

Ashley: I’m not sure how receptive she’ll be. I mean, she did say she wanted to be alone, but you’re more than welcome to make the attempt.

Sharon: I’ll try my best.

Victor: Okay.

Ashley: Thank you.

Mariah: Abby was such a wreck when we left. I really hope my mom can help her somehoW.

Tessa: It was an inspired move sending sharon over there, and hopefully she knows exactly what to say.

Mariah: I was at a loss.

Devon: Yeah, we all were.

Mariah: Abby and chance were so in love. I mean, they had so many plans for the life they wanted to live together, and then, what, it’s just — it’s gone in an instant?

Tessa: I can’t even imagine what that’s like. I mean, your whole world just crashing down on you and… devon, oh, my god, I am so sorry. I didn’t mean to be insensitive. I mean, you know exactly what abby’s going through right now.

Devon: You’re fine, tessa. You’re not insensitive at all. It’s fine. You’re absolutely right that i do know, and it’s a feeling that I wouldn’t wish on anyonE.

Phyllis: The stew looks great. I like to try new things.

Jack: Yeah, there are a few new things on here, kind of a cuban-french fusion.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Yeah.

Nikki: I wonder what’s going on over there.

Phyllis: Nick was curious, too.

Jack: Okay, I’m feeling a little left out here. Who is that guy?

Nick: It’s a pi that dad has on retainer. They are no doubt talking about jesse gaines and his current whereabouts.

Jack: Okay, that name doesn’t ring any bells.

Nikki: It’s just someone ashland used to know.

Nick: It’s someone that despises ashland. He showed up in italy to disrupt the wedding, but I ran into him first, locked him in a room in the palazzo until the wedding was over.

Jack: Okay, I was at this wedding. I had no idea what was going on behind the scenes. No wonder you were so relieved that the ceremony went off without a hitch.

Nikki: I didn’t know anything about it at the time either. In fact, I know very little now, and that suits me fine.

Nick: It’s a well-kept secret what happened to jesse gaines. I mean, no one has seen him in days. Dad had adam take care of him somehow.

Jack: When you say “take care of him”…

Phyllis: Well, no one knows what that really means, but…

Nikki: It’s nothing drastic.

Nick: Well, I thought you said you didn’t know what went down, mom.

Nikki: Your father happened to find some compromising information about him and used it to convince him to leave ashland alone.

Jack: Classic victor. I would expect nothing less of him.

Phyllis: Yeah, let’s just be glad it wasn’t anything worse.

Jack: Yeah, this is only slightly illegal.

Phyllis: Right, what’s a little blackmail between friends, right? You should be glad, jack, that you had nothing to do with it. Trust me, trust me, you’re better off.

Nick: Alright, you made your point. Let’s drop it. On the outside, I looked fine.

Nikki: Meeting adjourned.

Phyllis: Evidently.

Jack: So I’ve been playing this game online with harrison, you know, just to stay in touch. Kid is so clever. He’s been finding it easier and easier to beat me.

Nikki: Hmm. Why don’t you teach him to play chess?

Jack: I think he’s a little young for that. You guys are both gaming experts. Any recommendations?

Nick: Uh, the game that you’ve been playing with christian, with the racing cars and the animals are drivers. What’s that called?

Phyllis: I don’t know. You know, I’ll go on the internet and do some research, see if something jogs my memory.

Jack: Thanks. I appreciate that.

Phyllis: Sure. Oh, here’s a text from my assistant manager. I have to go. There’s an emergency. This has been lovely. Thank you.

Nikki: Oh. You’re welcome.

Nick: You want me to box up any of the lunch and bring it to you?

Phyllis: I’ll put that in your capable hands.

[ Clears throat ] Excuse me.

Nikki: Is everything okay between the two of you?

Nick: We’re fine.

Jack: You know what? I’m gonna get in touch with my assistant, as well. Got to push back a meeting. I’ll be right back.

Nikki: Okay. Darling, I don’t mean to pry, but it seems like things between you and phyllis are very tense.

Nick: Let’s get back to jesse gaines.

Nikki: Ugh, must we?

Nick: Yeah, I think it’d be a real mistake to look the other way this time, mom.

Nikki: It’s behind us, darling.

Nick: Really? Why would adam be talking to one of dad’s investigators?

Nikki: I don’t know. Why don’t you ask your brother?

Nick: I’m asking you. Dad and adam are keeping on the outside on this, but I know you can find out what’s going on.

Nikki: I would really rather stay out of it.

Nick: You know what that means, don’t you? You’re leaving victoria’s future and wellbeing in the hands of dad and adam. And given adam’s history, are you sure you’re comfortable with that?

Devon: You know how people always talk about grief as if it’s just one emotion? But you guys know that it’s so much more than that. It’s denial. It’s rage, loneliness, despair. The only way that I survived it was by having my family and my friends around me, and then eventually elena to help me, you know, get on track.

Tessa: Well, I’m thankful you did and that you’re happy again. And we just need to keep the faith, and eventually abby will get there, too, one day.

Devon: Yeah, I know she will. It’s just not gonna be easy for her.

Mariah: For dominic either. We saw the way that everything that’s happening has affected him. And abby’s emotions affect him.

Devon: That’s very true.

Mariah: I just have to wonder what kind of impact all of this stress is gonna have on him.

Sharon: Mariah told me the terrible news. Abby, I’m so sorry you have to go through this. And I’m here to listen, if you think it would help to talk.

Abby: I can’t right now yet.

Sharon: Okay, that’s okay. There are no rules. I’ll follow your lead. We can just sit here together, if you’d like.

Abby: Look, sharon, i understand that you are trying to help. But if I open that door, I… I might start screaming and never stop.

Sharon: Hey, you know what? In a situation like this, that’s a very normal fear.

Abby: Look, I have a baby to take care of. Chance is counting on me. Okay? I can’t fall apart. I can’t fall apart.

Sharon: Abby, I don’t see that happening. You’re not gonna fall apart. You might be tired and you need some rest. A shock to the system like this can be very hard on a person physically. But you’ve done it before. You made it through. You’ve suffered some really horrible losses and you survived — brad, colleen.

Abby: My baby girl.

Sharon: I know the kind of strength that it must have taken to carry on after that.

Abby: Chance helped me through that. He convinced me to have hope. He said that [Sniffles] I could be a mother and that we would have a long, happy life together. Why is this happening? Why?

[ Sniffles ]

[ Exhales sharply ] Why give your family just ordinary eggs

Devon: You’re right that abby is definitely gonna need help taking care of dominic while she’s recovering from all this, but she’s gonna have the help.

Tessa: Yeah, dominic’s nanny, ashley.

Devon: Exactly. And you know what? Honestly, I’m hoping that dominic becomes her source of comfort and her reason to get out of bed every day.

Mariah: Maybe. But we just don’t know yet. People react to trauma and grief in different ways.

Tessa: Well, I mean, that’s another reason why having sharon over there is really a good idea. She can keep her eyes open and let us know if there’s any cause for concern.

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Abby: I hate that I can’t control my emotions.

Sharon: Hey. Honestly, it’s fine.

Abby: It happened earlier. When christine brought me chance’s wedding ring, I just — I lost it in front of everyone, including the baby. I just… I kept thinking about my husband in that explosion. Terrified and suffering. And I felt like I was falling, like I couldn’t find solid ground.

Sharon: As scary as that must have felt, that’s actually a really normal reaction to trauma.

Abby: How am I gonna go on without my husband? My son is never gonna get to meet his father. How am I gonna face that? I am so afraid.

Ashley: What are you doing?

Victor: We just need to help our daughter, sweetheart. Get her all the support we can.

Sally: How was your meeting?

Adam: Um…tedious.

Sally: Really?

Adam: How was your lunch?

Sally: Productive. And…well… you know what? Maybe I will just show you. Somehow the national inquisitor got some photos of us from tuscany insinuating that you and I are a thing.

Adam: Um…well, I’d say the only real surprise is it took them that long to get around to it.

Sally: Well, I just figured I’d give you a head’s up in case anybody saw it and expected you to comment.

Adam: Everything is…

[ Cellphone rings ] …Fine. It’s chelsea. That was fast.

Sally: Good luck.

Nikki: I hope you didn’t take it seriously before, what nicholas and phyllis were implying.

Jack: You mean about this gaines fellow?

Nikki: I mean, obviously, no harm could’ve come to him. They were just being overly dramatic.

Jack: Yeah, I feel for nicholas these days. Clearly under a lot of pressure. He’s not getting along with victoria or adam or victor.

Nikki: Or phyllis, apparently. How much do you know about the tension between them?

Jack: Maybe the less said, the better. They’ve hit a bump in the road. They’ll figure it out.

Nick: Problem solved?

Phyllis: Yeah.

[ Sighs ]

Nick: I wish you hadn’t left. Now I still owe you lunch.

Phyllis: You don’t owe me anything. It’s fine. I knew what I signed up for. I knew your family history. It didn’t matter to me because i love you and the whole thing is worth it. It was worth it.

Nick: You’re right, it was.

Phyllis: Who are we kidding? This isn’t gonna work.

Noah: [ Chuckles ] I started jogging in London.

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

Phyllis: Well, Milan was fun.

Nick: Milan was fun. Kyle and Summer’s wedding was a blast. Then we got to Tuscany, and my sister’s wedding, not so much. There was a lot going on with my family. Um…I took that out on you. I let my family get to me, and i wish had never let that happen.

Phyllis: I appreciate that. Thanks. But I thought we were having what you called a hard-core conversation right now.

Nick: We are.

Phyllis: Oh, well, not — not really. I mean, let’s really be honest, ’cause things have not been great between us —mean brittle, they’ve been brittle — for a while now. And we’ve been really out of sync.

Nick: When do you think that happened?

Phyllis: I can’t really pinpoint it, but my guess is around the time I went after Sally and Tara because of what they did to Summer. And all you did was keep on giving me warnings. That’s all you did. That’s all you said during that time.
You said, “phyllis, watch out. Phyllis, don’t do that. Phyllis –”

[ Sighs ]

Nick: But eventually, i supported your plan. I just was concerned that you were gonna go overboard.

Phyllis: Really? ‘Cause that’s kind of something I do. I go overboard. You know, it’s in my DNA. It’s who I am. And you telling me not to do that, I just — I don’t get it.

Kevin: Definitely Esther. I mean, look at that smile! Hey, buddy.

Chloe: Well, I’m glad that the kids have their grandma because we are definitely off the list of Aunt Lauren’s favorite things.

Kevin: What are you talking about? She adores Bella and Miles.

Chloe: She hasn’t liked any of the photos that I’ve posted of the kids in their Halloween costumes, and normally she is the first one to react, with kissy faces and emojis. And — nope, nothing, nada.

Kevin: Maybe she’s busy.

Chloe: Or she’s still royally pissed off that I let Sally go to Tuscany and swap out Victoria’s wedding dress.

Kevin: And you have deduced all that because she hasn’t liked your photos?

Chloe: Of her niece and nephew in the cutest outfits ever?

Kevin: I think you’re reading way too much into this.

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Amanda: No word from abby?

Devon: Nope. Not even a text.

Amanda: Well, it’s understandable, you know, given everything that she’s going through. Not knowing if her husband is dead or alive, it must be torture.

Devon: I’m just glad that she hasn’t lost hope yet, ’cause if worst comes to worse and chance didn’t make it, I’m legitimately worried about what this is gonna do to abby.

[ Knock on door ]

Victor: Hello? Abby? Hello? Sweetheart, what are you doing there? Huh?

Abby: Do you have any news? Did they find chance?

Victor: No. Not yet. I just came to check up on you. Why is the door unlocked?

Abby: I don’t know how that happened. I was just trying to do some relaxation exercises.

Victor: Well, sit down. When is the last time you ate something or slept?

Abby: Dad, I don’t know. I’m a new mom. I’m always hungry and tired.

Victor: Sweetheart, you need to keep up your strength, okay?

Abby: Dad, what I really need right now is information, and i can’t find anythinG. I need to know what happened to chance.

Victor: Why don’t you go to the kitchen right now and make yourself some hot tea and some toast?

Abby: I’m fine.

Victor: No, sweetheart, you need strength right now. Please do as I say, and next time, keep the door locked.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Mariah: So I texted abby earlier just to let her know that we were thinking about her. Thought I’d get something back, maybe a text, but, no, nothing.

Tessa: Well, let’s operate under “no news is good news” in this scenario.

Mariah: I don’t know if I can do that, because any lack of information is — it’s just gonna stress abby out more.

Tessa: I just wish that someone would tell abby that chance is okay and that he’s coming home.

Mariah: But what if christine said is true? What if chance is gone?

Tessa: That would be absolutely devastating for abby.

Mariah: Not just for abby. I’m thinking about somebody else. Poor little bowie.

Nick: I got all your favorites — eggs, bacon, strawberries, yogurt, some oj, freshly squeezed, of course.

Phyllis: So you’re hoping that I forget about our argument because you got yogurt and fruit?

Nick: Look, I’m not trying to use romance to dodge our issues, alright? This is just a small gesture on my part to say to you, “let’s work this out.” I’m not looking for a quick fix. I know it’s gonna take some time. So if we can just sit down and share a meal and get comfortable, then we can have that talk — you know, the real-deal talk, the nitty-gritty, no-holds-barred, because that’s what it’s gonna take, phyllis, for us to get past this.

Phyllis: Alright, I’ll give it a try. Oh, man that is wrinkly.

Nick: I mean, this feels like a year ago, doing the exact same thing. We were holed up in this room, dissecting our relationship, wondering where we were headed, if anywhere.

Phyllis: Are we just going backwards and going in circles?

Nick: No, I — I think even the strongest of relationships needs to be examined from time to time, right?

Phyllis: Yeah, I suppose.

Nick: Phyllis, I don’t regret for one second the last year and a half of this.

Phyllis: I don’t either. I don’t either. But…

Nick: But what?

Phyllis: But we’re doing well.

[ Sighs ] Something is off, and I don’t know what it is, and, you know, it’s like we’re going backwards.

Nick: You really think that?

Phyllis: Yeah, don’t you? I mean, I want to get to where it was good. I want to be there again. How do we get there? I mean, do you want to try, at least?

Nick: Of course I do. Don’t you?

Phyllis: Yeah, of course i do. I mean, where do we start?

Nick: We could start with an apology.

Phyllis: Okay, well, I don’t have anything to apologize for.

Nick: Yeah, I — I get that. I’m, of course, talking about me. I’m sorry.

Mariah: If bowie loses his dad before he even gets the chance to meet him, that would be too cruel.

Tessa: Please, don’t go down that road. We should follow abby’s lead and stay positive. She’s certain that someone just made a mistake and that he’s coming home to her, so we should share that mind-set.

Mariah: But abby is so fervent in her belief that chance is still alive that it’s running her to the ragged edge, and it’s having an effect on bowie’s emotional state. I can tell.

Tessa: I’m worried.

Mariah: Yeah, we all are.

Tessa: No. About your attachment to the baby. Please don’t go overboard.

Mariah: Relax. It’s really not like that. I mean, naturally, if I’m gonna be worried for abby, my thoughts are gonna drift to the baby. And the possibility of chance being gone, I mean, it’s put a lot of things into perspective. It’s really made me appreciate the gifts that I have in my life. Like you.

Tessa: That’s very sweet.

Noah: Hey!

Mariah: Hey.

Tessa: Hey, how are you?

Mariah: You’re running. What’s wrong? Is somebody chasing you, or…?

Noah: [ Chuckles ] I started jogging in london.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Tessa: Is that abby?

Mariah: No, it’s work. Holiday promotional stuff. I need to check in.

Tessa: You’re going into the office?

Mariah: Yeah, but I will catch up with you later.

Tessa: Okay.

Mariah: Alright, I’ll see you.

Noah: See you.

Tessa: [ Sighs ]

Noah: What was that about abby?

Tessa: Oh. You haven’t heard.

Noah: What’s going on? Should I call her or…?

Tessa: Oh, no, no. Don’t bother her.

Noah: Seems like it’s weighing on you and mariah, so if you want to talk about it, I’m here.

Tessa: Thanks.

Noah: And if you’re worried about confidentiality, you can trust me.

Tessa: Well, since it affects mariah and your family, you should know. It’s about chance.

Abby: Is he still sleeping?

Victor: Yes, adorable and very peacefully, you know?

Abby: Good.

Victor: I thought ashley was here.

Abby: She was, yeah. She stayed here last night and took care of us, but I sent her home so she could get some rest.

Victor: Mm-hmm. You get something to eat?

Abby: I did, yes. Thank you. I got a sandwich, and you were right. It’s gonna help me keep up my energy while I search for chance.

Victor: Are you searching personally on this or directly?

Abby: Yes.

Victor: Oh.

Abby: I mean, I haven’t heard anything from christine since before I told you what happened. I’m not gonna just sit around here, waitinG.

Victor: I understand.

Abby: Dad, look. There was an explosion at this building in valencia, spain. I found the location from reports online. A building isn’t gonna just explode without someone noticing. And there’s nothing on survivors or victims, but [Sighs] Dad, what little information I can find, it says that it’s the result of a gas leak.

Victor: Uh-huh.

Abby: But christine said it was because of a bomb. Look, I don’t care how it happened, I just — I need proof that my husband is alive.

Victor: I understand.

[ Sighs ] I have some news.

Abby: You do? Why didn’t you say something sooner?

Victor: Because I wanted to make sure that you had something to eat first, okay? Christine was right. This building did not explode because of a gas leak. Someone put a bomb in there after they found out that chance used that building as a safe house. And he and his colleagues were directly targeted. Nope

Abby: Chance’s undercover work was exposed. His agents were left vulnerable, but, dad, that doesn’t mean that anything happened to him. He could just be laying low, trying to protect of his team. I mean, that’s exactly what chance would do. He would be putting their safety first.

Victor: Sweetheart, his bravery has never been questioned. He is a tough, brave guy. Now, from my sources, I know that this incident, this bombing, is very high on the list of priorities for the state department. So while they’re still searching…

Abby: Searching — see, they haven’t given up.

Victor: Let me finish, my love.

[ Sighs ] Apparently, four of his colleagues that he was working with have been classified as… “killed in the line of duty.”

Abby: But, dad, chance was not on that list. He was not one of the four, and that has to mean something. I am telling you, he was not in that building. He’s probably safe somewhere, and when the coast is clear, he will come home.

Amanda: Let’s not jump to worst-case scenario. You know, chance is smart and savvy. Remember how he helped you nail colin when he was trying to steal your inheritance?

Devon: Oh, sure, I do, but i still don’t understand why he would bring a personally engraved watch on such a dangerous mission and risk blowing his cover with it.

Amanda: The watch was found in the safe house. He didn’t have it on him.

Devon: Either way, why are you gonna risk it? Why risk anything like that when you have a family to come back home to?

Amanda: You’re right.

Devon: And meanwhile, abby’s living through a nightmare.

Amanda: He has been gone a long time.

Devon: And the worst part of this now is I know that what was keeping her going was the idea of her husband coming back home. That was the light at the end of the tunnel for her, and if that’s taken away, she’s gonna need a lot of support from the people who love her.

Amanda: And she will get it, if it comes to that.

Devon: [ Scoffs ]

Nick: I apologize that things got so brittle between us in italy.

Phyllis: Well, milan was fun.

Nick: Milan was fun. Kyle and summer’s wedding was a blast. Then we got to tuscany, and my sister’s wedding, not so much. There was a lot going on with my family. Um…I took that out on you. I let my family get to me, and i wish I had never let that happen.

Phyllis: I appreciate that. Thanks. But I thought we were having what you called a hard-core conversation right now.

Nick: We are.

Phyllis: Oh, well, not — not really. I mean, let’s really be honest, ’cause things have not been great between us — I mean brittle, they’ve been brittle — for a while now. And we’ve been really out of sync.

Nick: When do you think that happened?

Phyllis: I can’t really pinpoint it, but my guess is around the time I went after sally and tara because of what they did to summer. And all you did was keep on giving me warnings. That’s all you did. That’s all you said during that time. You said, “phyllis, watch out. Phyllis, don’t do that. Phyllis –”

[ Sighs ]

Nick: But eventually, i supported your plan. I just was concerned that you were gonna go overboard.

Phyllis: Really? ‘Cause that’s kind of something I do. I go overboard. You know, it’s in my dna. It’s who I am. And you telling me not to do that, I just — I don’t get it.

Nick: I never meant to make you feel like you couldn’t be who you are. I just — you know, I was nervous that summer was gonna get hurt or that you were gonna get in trouble. I was just trying to be the voice of reason.

Phyllis: Okay, you know that’s never gonna work on me.

Nick: What?

Phyllis: Reason.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ] We know each other so well. Too well. There are profound differences between us.

Nick: I agree with that.

Phyllis: I mean, nick, you had to have known I was gonna go after sally and tara. After what they did to summer, you had to have known I was gonna fight back. By you telling me not to, by you telling me to stop, it just goes against who I am. I mean, it was almost hurtful.

Nick: Well, you know how much my family means to me. They’re a big part of my life. I am very involved in their lives, particularly my sister’s and my mother and sometimes even my father. I’m not proud of that, but it’s who I am.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Believe me, I know.

Nick: Well, you took issue with that in italy. Do you honestly think that was productive?

[ Sneeze ]

Phyllis: Wow, you sound mad.

Nick: Not mad.

Phyllis: You’re not, really? Seriously? Because you were mad in tuscany. Did we ever resolve that? See, that’s the thing, that’s the thing is we have these little grievances, we have these little issues that we just don’t deal with, and then something else comes along and then it turns into a big issue, and we just ignore it and fix it by, you know, hopping into bed with each other.

Nick: I mean, that’s accurate. I’m amazed that method has worked as long as it has for us.

Phyllis: Okay. Alright, well, let’s not do that anymore. If we want to make this work, we have to do things differently. Have we just been taking each other for granted for the last year and a half?

Nick: No, I, uh… I always appreciate you.

Phyllis: Well, I appreciate you. I think that you like the fun, frothy side of me, but I think there are certain parts of my personality that you are not fond of.

Nick: This conversation feels familiar.

Phyllis: Yeah, I think we had it a year ago. And we agreed that we were going to let each other be who we are and accept aspects of each other’s personality. I think we agreed.

Nick: Yes, we did.

Phyllis: Yeah, but right now, we’re arguing about not allowing either one of us to be ourselves.

Nick: I — [ Sighs ] I mean, do you have to love every single thing about the person you’re with? I think that is unreasonable. It doesn’t matter how good of a match you are, there’s gonna be something about that person that you don’t care for.

Phyllis: Okay, yeah, I know, but those are little things. We’re talking about huge chunks of our personality that we’re not fond of.

Nick: Well, it never really seemed to matter until right now.

Phyllis: You’re always gonna be close to your family, aren’t you?

Nick: Yes. We’ve talked about that many times.

Phyllis: Okay, alright. I know.

[ Sighs ]

[ Exhales sharply ] Your relationship with your family is strained now. But you’re gonna come around like you always do. You’re gonna be sitting at thanksgiving dinner, laughing with them, as if nothing ever happened. You’re never gonna change. Your family’s never gonna change. I’m never gonna change. You know who I am. I’m reckless and I’m wild and I’m brash. So this whole time, have we just been skating around and ignoring every single issue that is bringing us to this conversation right now?

Devon: Gosh, you know what? We’ve been talking so much about abby’s situation, I haven’t asked you about sutton’s trial.

Amanda: Oh, yeah. It’s coming up soon.

Devon: I know it is, and I’m not very happy that michael’s trying to pressure you into testifying against your grandfather. I don’t think it’s fair.

Amanda: Yes, it may not be, but I have made a decision. I haven’t told you about it because you’ve been so consumed with everything going on with abby.

Devon: You gonna do it?

Amanda: Yes. I’m gonna take the stand.

Noah: I can’t believe it. Poor abby. I mean, is there anything I can do to help her?

Tessa: I mean, I understand the impulse to help, but abby is certain that chance is coming back to her. So until more information comes to light, I mean, there’s not really anything we can do. And please don’t tell anyone about this, even your family. I mean, unless they bring it up first.

Noah: I got it. Wait, who else in my family knows, though?

Tessa: I know your grandfather’s trying to help, but I’m not sure how amongst anyone else knows what’s going on.

Noah: I’ll keep it to myself then.

Tessa: Thank you. I mean, we’re trying to help abby, but, you know, she asked for space. I think she thinks that it’ll help her keep a clear head.

Noah: Yeah. No, I get that. Being surrounded by people, no matter how supportive, it — it can still feel like a distraction.

Tessa: I think for abby, she feels as if she accepts the sympathy, that it’s gonna make it worse for her.

Noah: Yeah, it’s a newman trait. We don’t want to accept help from anybody until it’s forced upon us, usually by another newman. She wouldn’t want to face the fear and sadness in everyone’s eyes.

Tessa: Of course. She’s worried. I mean, who wouldn’t be?

Noah: I’m assuming, because of the baby, it must be especially hard for mariah, and not to mention, for you.

Abby: There’s so many doors and windows, fire escapes, so many different ways that chance could’ve made it out, and that’s if he was in the building.

Victor: Sweetheart, you make a very good point. Has nina been contacted?

Abby: [ Sighs ] Christine was gonna tell her. I mean, I wanted to, but christine insisted. I guess she’s, um, waiting for confirmation. There’s no need to put chance’s mother through what we’ve all been going through, especially when I know that chance is still alive.

Victor: No, I think nina ought to be informed of what’s going on. I mean, you wouldn’t want to wait here and be kept in the dark about what’s gone on.

Abby: No, you’re right.

Victor: So then, why don’t i call her?

Abby: I’ll call christine and tell her that she needs to let nina know.

Victor: Okay.

Abby: She’ll want to be the one to break the news to her best friend. Dad, we need to stay positive. We can’t give up. Chance wouldn’t want us to.

Victor: I agree with you. Okay? Come here.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Victor: You just remember, i will always be there for you, okay?

Abby: Thank you, daddy.

Victor: Okay.

Think wearing less makeup

means no need for a wipe?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Devon: So you’re going to testify against your grandfather, huh?

Amanda: You sound worried.

Devon: You already know that I’m worried. I don’t need to tell you again why. I just believe that michael can win this case without putting you on the stand.

Amanda: I agree. Michael is a good lawyer. I know that he can make his case without my involvement, but i have to do this, devon. Sutton killed my father, okay? So I can’t shy away from this. I need to look across that courtroom and tell him to his face that I know what he did.

Devon: And I’m sure you’ve thought about this, obviously, a lot, so I support you, 100%. I have your back.

Amanda: Do you ever get tired of being the nicest guy on the planet?

Devon: [ Chuckles ] I mean, you should know that’s a front.

[ Both laugh ]

Amanda: Oh, really? Okay, well, then if that’s true, then I guess I am a horrible judge of character.

Devon: No. I mean [Chuckles] I’m no saint at all. I’m angry at someone right now, and I know that it’s not justified.

Amanda: Who?

Devon: Chance. He’s put abby through hell. And I know it’s not fair of me to say that, and I hope and pray that he is safe and he comes home, but if he does, I’m certainly gonna let him know how I feel.

Amanda: Well, I really hope you get that opportunity.

Devon: Yeah, I hope so, too.

Amanda: You’re a really good man, devon hamilton.

Devon: I try to be.

Amanda: I can tell that you’re still worried. So why don’t you go? Okay? Go and make sure that abby and the baby are okay.

Victor: Don’t you cry. Everything will be alright. Okay. Yes. Yes.

Abby: [ Gasps ]

Victor: It’ll be alright.

Abby: [ Exhales sharply ]

[ Sniffles ]

Victor: Oh, sweetheart, don’t you cry.

Abby: I shouldn’t be around the baby like this.

Mariah: Abby? A-abby? Why was abby running out like that?

Victor: She’s just very upset right now.

Mariah: Is there any news about chance?

Victor: [ Exhales sharply ] I don’t have time to explain, okay? Would you take the baby while i run after her?

Mariah: Yeah, of course.

Victor: Thank you so much. Appreciate it. There we go. There we go. There we go. Okay, thank you.

Mariah: Of course.

Nick: [ Sighs ] I think we’re being honest with each other. You know, we’re not fooling ourselves. Yes, we have issues. But I’m trying like hell to see things from your vantage point.

Phyllis: Yeah, I know you are. I appreciate that. I want you to know I’m checking myself. I’m not trying to self-sabotage. You know, I’m not trying to destroy this relationship. I want us to work.

Nick: Well, I think it says a lot that we’re, you know, trying to figure out where we are and how we got here. ‘Cause, despite our differences, you know, we mesh. It’s a push-pull relationship, and right now, we’re focusing more on the push than the pull, and the pull is that we love each other.

Phyllis: I’m looking at the big picture, you know? Usually, I can outweigh the good with the bad, but lately…

Nick: I think the one thing that truly matters is that we love each other and that we’re happy.

Phyllis: Are you happy? I mean, truly happy?

Nick: I mean, the fact that you’re even asking me that implies that you’re not. Are you?

Phyllis: I’m not happy. It hurts to say that. I’m not happy right now. Right now I’m not happy. And I think if you were honest with yourself, you’d say the same thing. I brought in ensure max protein, with thirty grams of protein.

Nick: Don’t put words in my mouth, okay? I truly respect your feelings. I want you to respect mine, and don’t make me feel like I’m not being honest.

Phyllis: I wasn’t saying that. I wasn’t saying that you aren’t being honest with me or yourself.

Nick: Well, that’s the way it sounded, and if that’s not the case, then you make it sound like I’m not smart enough to understand what I’m truly feeling.

Phyllis: No, I didn’T. That’s not what I’m saying at all.

Nick: [ Sighs ] We’re in a rough patch right now. There’s been miscommunications and mistakes made, but the only thing that matters is us. What we have is amazing, alright? We are a lot more than video games and hot sex.

Phyllis: Of course we are.

Nick: Well, some people say that what we have is easy and comfortable, and I disagree with that.

Phyllis: Well, who said that?

Nick: [ Sighs ] You know what? It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter.

Phyllis: Yes, it does. Have you been talking about our relationship with somebody?

Nick: Who cares what other people think, alright? What we need to do is focus on us and making this work. Can we do that?

Phyllis: Yes, yes. But you’re the one who brought it up. You said that somebody said that we’re hot sex and video games. I’ve never heard anybody say that at all, by the way.

Nick: Forget I mentioned it.

Phyllis: No, I’m not gonna forget that you mentioned it. Who — who are you going to for advice about our relationship?

Nick: Look, I don’t need other people’s opinions. They’re not helping. Especially when they’re coming from someone like jack who’s off waiting in the wings for you.

[ Door opens ]

Mariah: Hello?

Devon: Hey.

Mariah: Hey.

Devon: Hey, what’s going on?

Mariah: Oh. Abby ran out of here and victor chased after her. They left me in charge of the baby.

Devon: Why did abby leave?

Mariah: I don’t know, but she seemed very emotional. Did you come to check on her?

Devon: Yeah, yeah, I did. Just wish there was something i could do.

Mariah: Me, too. I went to work for a little bit. I put out a small fire there, but then I felt compelled to come back here.

Devon: I think until we know something concrete about chance, we just have to hope for the best and prepare for —

Mariah: I know what we have to prepare for.

Devon: Yeah, I know you do. I’m just saying it ’cause it’s gonna take all of our support to help get abby through this.

Mariah: Yeah. We need to be here for abby as much as we possibly can. And for this precious little guy right here.

Abby: [ Sighs ] Chance. I’m gonna hold on to those promises you made the day that you proposed. And that is how I know that you can’t be gone. You would never break your word.

[ Sniffles ]

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Breathes shakily ]

[ Sniffles ]

Victor: Hi, sweetheart. Come here.

Abby: I’m sorry.

Victor: Nothing to be sorry for, okay?

Abby: I’m sitting here in the park talking to myself, blubbering like a fool. It’s not my proudest moment.

Victor: It’s okay, okay? You’re feeling very emotional right now. It’s alright to feel that way. It’s alright to let it all out, okay?

Abby: I can’t do it in front of dominic. I mean, he’s so sensitive to my emotional state. That’s why I just — I had to leave.

[ Sighs ]

Victor: All I can tell you is that he will be alright. He’s a strong boy. He’ll be alright.

Abby: Dad, I know that chance is alive. I can feel it in my heart. So I don’t know why I’m falling apart like this, why I am such a mess.

Victor: You’re very upset right now, rightfully so. To live with that uncertainty about what happened to your loved one, I mean, that’s very understandable, alright? You just know that I’ll always be here for you. You can always lean on me. You can always come to me, okay? Come here.

Devon: Hey, mariah, you know that if you need to go to work and take care of things, I can stay here with dominic.

Mariah: No, I wouldn’t be able to focus on anything at work anyways, and I feel like i need to be here, you know, in case something happens. Kind of feels like a part of the pact we made when I first became the surrogate, you know? Have each other’s backs.

Devon: Yeah, I know. I know. So do I. And if bad news is on its way, i want to be here for abby.

Mariah: Yeah, me, too.

[ Knock on door ] Abby?

Devon: I don’t think she’d knock. Hey.

Christine: Hey. Is abby home?

Devon: No, she took off. Do you have any news? Frequent heartburn? Not anymore.

Phyllis: Wait a second. Our issues have nothing to do with jack. Nothing. Jack is just a friend to me.

Nick: This isn’t about friendship. I mean, he declared that he’s still in love with you to both of us.

Phyllis: Oh, who cares? Who cares? He was just being honest. It doesn’t mean he doesn’t want the best for us.

Nick: It also doesn’t mean that you need to go running off to jack every time you got a problem.

Phyllis: Oh, my god, that’s not what I’m doing. I just go to jack for he– jack has been a friend, and he has helped me.

Nick: Right. Because he knows you so much better than I do.

Phyllis: Okay, you know what? You know what? We’re getting off topic here. This conversation is supposed to be about us.

Nick: Yeah. That’s what we’re doing, right?

Phyllis: Yeah, but all of a sudden, we’re talking about jack or somebody else that is whispering in your ear about our relationship. That is doing more harm than good. This is about us and nobody else.

Nick: Okay. Well, I need to know, are we together in this or not?

Abby: Thank you for everything.

Victor: You just remember, you’re strong enough to handle this on your own. And if you ever need anyone, you call me, and I’ll be right here, okay? Remember, you have a lot of people who love you. In fact, I see two of them right there.

Abby: [ Chuckles ] Hey, guys.

Devon: Hey.

Abby: Hi, christine.

Christine: Hi, abby.

Abby: Look, I don’t want to be coddled, so, um, just tell me. Why are you here?

Christine: This was delivered to the agency’s field office today. I…I requested that I be the one to bring it to you. It was found at the site of the explosion.

[ Sighs ] Is this chance’s wedding ring?

Victor: Christine, um, that doesn’t mean that that is his ring. He wouldn’t wear that while doing undercover work.

Christine: I thought that, too, victor, but it turns out he left it on. He adapted it as part of his cover story as a married businessman. Evidently, chance didn’t ever want to take off his ring.

Abby: [ Sniffles ]

Christine: Is this chance’s?

Abby: [ Sighs ] It can’t be.

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Sniffles ]

[ Sighs ]

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

Jack: I feel for nicholas these days. Clearly under a lot of pressure. He’s not getting along with victoria or adam or victor.

Nikki: Or phyllis, apparently. How much do you know about the tension between them?

Nina: [ Gasps ] Until this very moment, it didn’t seem real.

[ Sobbing ]

Billy: What the hell?

Gaines: I had nowhere else to go. I’m not safe. Can you hide me?
