Recap written by Christine

Mariah and Tessa were at home. They toasted to bein married and agreed that it felt very natural. They talked about the wedding, and they were very happy with every aspect of it. Later, Tessa opened the wedding gifts, while Mariah took notes on them for the thank you notes. Someone Tessa worked with gave them a coffee table book on birds. Tessa seemed mystified by the gift choice. Mariah said she liked birds, which resulted in a quizzical look from Tessa. Mariah’s employees at Jabot got them a golden rock-on hand. Faith got them an artistic drawing of a heart that said family. Tessa brought up having their first child. Mariah was startled that Tessa was thinking of having more than one. Tessa said it was a slip of the tongue. Mariah assured Tessa that she’d love more than one. Tessa smiled, and said maybe one of them would decide to carry a child after adopting.

Mariah and Tessa kissed, then they held hands as they went to the bedroom. While they were in bed, Mariah told Tessa that she didn’t have to hide wanting another kid, even if she wasn’t sure Mariah felt the same way. “We share everything.” Tessa agreed and said it was the best of who they were, and who they’d continue to be. They called each other wife, and they shared a passionate kiss. Tessa suggested they stay up all night so they could experience every second of this day. Mariah liked the idea of watching the sun rise on their very first day as a married couple.

Jack walked Phyllis to her suite, and she brought up their unexpected kiss. He wasn’t sure it was unexpected. She suggested that it happened because of all the emotions swirling around due to the wedding. Phyllis entered her room alone, but she left the door open. Jack followed and closed the door behind him. They slept together. As they basked in the afterglow, Phyllis grinned and said she was starting to think that kiss was a little more than just the wedding. They agreed that this felt right. He knew her well enough to know she was hungry. He thought they’d order room service, but she said she’d rather keep the celebration going at Society.

Michael ran into Diane at Society. He couldn’t stop staring – he couldn’t get over the fact that she was really here. It was meaningful to her that someone said that while sounding kind of glad about it. Lauren was out of town on business, so Michael was alone. A grateful Diane accepted Michael’s offer to join her. He asked how things were going. She said that Kyle extended his visit, but not because of her. She bragged about how well Kyle did officiating the wedding.

Michael was disapproving of Diane crashing the wedding. He said her presence could’ve caused a scene. Diane said she was a better person now, but she was still Diane, so certain people would always see her as suspect. Michael reminded Diane that he was the one who advised her when she and Jack were fighting over Kyle’s custody. Michael also eventually had to step in and take over the case. Diane smiled and noted that Michael was the reason she won custody, in large part because of the way he grilled Phyllis on the stand. “I’m also the person who organized your memorial service because I didn’t want Kyle to think that everybody hated his mom,” Michael added. Diane didn’t know that, and she was touched. It reminded her all over again what she put Kyle through, though. Michael wasn’t trying to make Diane feel guilty. He thought she was sincere about wanting to make amends with Kyle. Michael acknowledged that he was no saint either. Diane admired and envied Michael because he had a place to call home with people who loved and respected him. He agreed he was fortunate, and he assured her that she wasn’t alone in the world. Michael said Diane was a formidable woman, and that meant keeping her head held high and not being impulsive, like showing up at events where she wasn’t invited. Diane didn’t want to be scolded. Michael felt that he was being the friend Diane needed by telling her what she needed to hear. He said if she wanted to have a real relationship with Kyle, she had to be prepared to wait and suffer some of the wrath of Genoa City.

Diane saw Jack and Phyllis walk in, and they saw her. Phyllis grumbled about Diane and Michael being like best buds. Jack told her to ignore them, and she said she would do that for him. Phyllis and Jack got a table and held hands. She smiled as she gazed into his eyes. They talked about him catching the bouquet, and she wished she’d gotten to see it. Across the room, Diane was sure that Phyllis was fawning all over Jack to annoy her. Michael said he’d take Diane’s word for it. At that point, Phyllis loudly laughed at something Jack said. Diane decided to leave. Michael didn’t think Diane should let Phyllis chase her away. Diane said that Phyllis never passed up the chance to make her feel unwelcome. Diane was going to check out of the Grand Phoenix since Phyllis wanted her out. Michael said dinner was on him. Diane appreciated that and his friendship. He reiterated the advice not to be impulsive.

Diane went to Phyllis and Jack’s table and wished them a good evening. Phyllis stated that Diane needed to leave the hotel first thing in the morning. Diane knew – she said she just had to finalize her plans. Diane left. Jack wondered if she’d go back to LA. Phyllis said everyone made it clear that Diane wasn’t welcome here. Phyllis planned to do whatever it took to drive that point home. Jack looked amused. Phyllis shifted gears and said Jack’s eyes were so blue, and sometimes that took her breath away. He joked that he’d try and change, but she said she liked it.

Later, Phyllis rushed to Michael and confronted him about “chatting it up with your old pal, that lunatic, Diane Jenkins.” Michael refused to kick his old friend while she was down. He thought too many people were doing that, but Phyllis thought that Diane should be catching more heat. Michael began to say that he’d be there for Phyllis if she were in that situation. Phyllis cut him off because she took umbrage at being compared to Diane. Michael said Phyllis had a propensity to do things that had consequences she didn’t plan for, thus alienating large swaths of people. Michael said as a friend, he’d stand by Phyllis, and he told her to suck it up. She glared. He noted that she seemed happy with Jack a moment ago, so he told her to go enjoy that.

Good luck with that, Jack” Michael said as he left the restaurant. Phyllis thanked Jack. He asked if she felt better now. “Damn you and those blue eyes,” she said. Later, he took her back to the hotel lobby, and she said they should part ways here. He thought that was a good idea, since the kids were back at his place, and if he didn’t spend the night there, his absence would be noted. He didn’t want to field questions that were none of the kids’ business. He said he and Phyllis would decide how this evolved. She agreed and they shared a peck on the lips and agreed to see each other tomorrow. Phyllis got on the elevator. “My my, so much romance in the air tonight,” Diane said. It turned out she was sitting in the lobby.

Jack commented on Diane going to the wedding where she was neither invited nor welcome. She said she wanted to see her son. Michael told her that she needed to be patient with Kyle, and she was willing to do that, even if it meant she was constantly turning the other cheek with Phyllis. She hoped to have more moments like she did at the wedding, like when Kyle reintroduced her to Summer. Diane asked how Kyle was doing after the wedding. Jack said he wasn’t going to be a go-between. He stated that Kyle and Diane were adults. Jack was going to support whatever Kyle decided, and he thought Diane needed to give Kyle some time and space. Diane said that Jack and Phyllis seemed to be moving things along, and the timing was interesting. “Almost like [Phyllis is] marking her territory,” Diane said. Diane sauntered off, and Jack narrowed his eyes and appeared to think about what she’d said.

At the Abbott house, Summer came downstairs and told Kyle how cute the sleeping Harrison was. She thought he was the sweetest kid ever, and she marveled that she was so crazy about him after such a short amount of time. Kyle said that Harrison tried hard to be good. Kyle had been the same way as a kid – it had been him and his mom against the world, and yet she still… He decided to drop the subject. Summer resented the way Diane showed up at the wedding and forced Kyle to bring Summer to her. Kyle didn’t feel forced. Summer said that Diane knew Kyle couldn’t say no. Summer also felt that Diane played the martyr when she was asked to leave and acted like Kyle was her protector. That was why Summer couldn’t trust Diane. Summer could see that Kyle was struggling with this.

Kyle didn’t know if he could forgive his mother, or if he even should. Summer was sympathetic. She could see how badly he wanted to believe Diane was sincere, but Summer hadn’t seen any proof, and she didn’t want him to get hurt. Part of him wanted to take more time to decide, but part of him wanted to stop living in limbo. He hated being so guarded around his mother. Summer said that it was Kyle’s decision, and she reminded him that even if he made a choice, he could always change his mind. She knew that it was up to Kyle to decide whether to introduce Harrison to Diane, but Summer thought they should leave the boy out of this for as long as possible. At least until they knew whether Diane was trustworthy. Kyle completely agreed.

Kyle wanted to set the Diane issue aside and focus on his strong, gorgeous, pragmatic wife, who took his breath away. They shared a deep kiss, then they took things upstairs. They disrobed, then he carried her to bed. Later, they cuddled, and he said he loved their life in Milan, but sometimes he got homesick. She said there was something special about being back in Genoa City. She didn’t realize how much she missed it. He thought they should try and come back more often. He knew Marchetti was her dream job, but work life balance was important.

Summer got out of bed. She revealed that she’d discovered some troubling things about Marchetti’s finances, and she brought it to Angelina, who’d politely brushed Summer off. That lead Summer to do a deep dive into Marchetti’s books. Things were really bad. Summer now realized why Angelina had been so interested in her marketing experience. Summer’s vision for the brand had helped things somewhat, but Marchetti was still deep in the hole. Summer approached Angelina again, but she was deep in denial and too afraid to do what it took to shore things up. Kyle asked if Summer was thinking of walking away. Summer said no. She loved her work and really believed in Angelina’s design talent. Summer knew it’d take something really big to keep Marchetti afloat. Kyle could tell Summer had an idea.

Summer wondered what if Jabot bought Marchetti. Jabot had been in and out of the fashion business, so she reasoned that it shouldn’t be hard to ramp back up. Kyle thought it was an interesting idea, but he had to think about how it would work. Summer thought they could move operations to Genoa City, so they could move back home, permanently. She said they could give Angelina the option to relocate or work remotely. Summer asked if Kyle wanted to move back, now that Diane was here.

Noah let himself into Crimson Lights, which was closed. Over the phone, he explained to Sharon that he had a lot of energy, so he didn’t want to come home and keep everyone up. The call ended. Allie entered and noted that the place looked closed. Noah explained that it was, but his mom owned it. Allie was there because she couldn’t sleep. Noah said he’d make Allie a drink. He smiled and said they could ignore each other after that. That sounded good to her.

Allie was doing something on her phone when Noah approached with a coffee pot. He asked why she wasn’t at Jack’s. She said there were so many people there. She didn’t want to seem rude, because everyone had been so welcoming, but for many years, it was just her and her dad. There was a lot of energy at the house, and it was all directed at her, but they were all strangers, so it was awkward. Noah understood. He had a big family – the Newmans were an assertive and smart bunch. He’d left town to avoid family drama. The last time, he left the continent. It took him a long time to realize there was far more good at being a part of it than there was bad.

Allie was glad Noah figured out how to get along with his family well enough not to flee the country. Noah assured Allie that Jack was a very good man. Jack used to be Noah’s stepfather. Allie recalled Jack saying he’d been married several times. Noah said Allie met Summer, and surely saw how cool she was. Allie agreed. Noah said Kyle was cool too. According to Noah, the Abbotts were kind and generous people who’d take Allie on her own terms, and if she asked them for space, they’d still be there when she was ready.

Sharon: Um…thank you, but, you know, you mentioned that rey really loved to dance, and chance had suggested that to me, too, but I don’t know.

Nick: Yeah. I get it.

Sharon: Um, but you should get out there. You don’t want to put this great outfit to waste.

Nick: I mean, I am really crushing this outfit. I know.

Sharon: Sure.

[ Both laugh ] Um, you know what? Hey, you should ask summer. She looks like she might want to dance with her dad.

Nick: Yeah. I shouldn’t pass up an opportunity to embarrass all of my children tonight.

Sharon: I absolutely agree. Do it.

Nick: So, you sure?

Sharon: Yeah. Positive.

Nick: Alright.

Phyllis: I’m having so much fun, the most fun I’ve had in a really long time. Let’s go dance again.

Jack: Ordinarily, I would say yes, but I see allie across the room there by herself. Do you mind if I ask her?

Phyllis: No. Do it. Definitely.

Jack: Thank you.

Phyllis: We’ll dance later.

Jack: Well, hi there.

Allie: Hi.

Jack: Would you like to dance?

Allie: Oh, I’m not sure, jack. I don’t usually dance at weddings.

Summer: [ Laughs ] You are having too much fun.

Nick: Well, I’m gonna have to ice my knees later.

Summer: [ Laughs ] I love you.

Nick: I love you, too, supergirl.

Kyle: Hey, sorry to bust in on…whatever’s going on here.

Summer: Alright. Don’t hurt yourself. You okay? What’s wrong?

Kyle: My mother’s here. She would like to say hello.

Summer: Now? Why?

[ Up-tempo music playing ]

[ Indistinct conversations ]

[ Cheers and applause ]

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Kyle: Summer…my mother.

Summer: Hi. It’s been a long time.

Diane: Yes, it has. But I’ve been able to follow you and your career a bit over the years, and I’m — I’m so impressed with what a successful and lovely woman you’ve become. Oh, and congratulations on your own wedding. Clearly, you make my son very happy.

Summer: I do my best. He makes me extremely happy, as well.

Diane: That’s wonderful. Love is hard to find and even harder to keep. Uh, so, um, now that kyle and i have reconnected, I was hoping that maybe you and I could get re-acquainted, as well. Well, I-I’m not saying that we’re all of a sudden going to become best friends, but I was hoping that slowly, over time, we could forge some kind of relationship. I mean, I — I am your mother-in-law. Although I promise I won’t be the typical, annoying kind.

Summer: Nothing about this is typical.

Jack: [ Groans ] Oh, that looks like trouble.

Phyllis: Hell no. Look what she’s trying to do. I see it. She’s trying to insinuate herself into my daughter’s life. That’s not gonna happen. I’m gonna put a stop to that right —

Jack: No, no, no, don’t go.

Phyllis: Why not?

Jack: Because, as you said yourself, if you go over there, it will only escalate things. This is tessa and mariah’s big day. Let’s be fair to them.

Kevin: Hey, that toast you gave was so beautiful. It bordered on being intimidating. I’m glad you went after me ’cause it would have been too hard to follow that tear-jerker.

Crystal: Are you kidding? I was a wreck having to follow you. Yours was so poignant and true.

Mariah: Guys, it’s not a contest.

[ Laughter ]

Tessa: Both toasts were amazing.

Mariah: Yep.

Tessa: But I still cannot believe that you’re here.

Crystal: Sometimes it doesn’t even feel real.

Tessa: But it is.

Crystal: I’m hoping I can thank your brother for everything he did to help get the charges against me dropped so that I could come back to town.

Kevin: Yeah, I’m sure that can be arranged.

Crystal: Yeah.

Kevin: How long are you here for?

Crystal: I’m not sure.

Tessa: If it were up to me, she would stay forever, but tonight is good for starters.

Mariah: Well, why don’t we raise a toast to crystal?

Crystal: Ah.

Mariah: Welcome back.

Kevin: Yes.

Crystal: Thank you.

[ Light laughter ]

Tessa: And now can we talk about your dresses? I mean, incredible.

Chloe: I know. Chelsea did such an amazing job. I’m sorry that she couldn’t be here.

Mariah: Oh, yeah, she was fantastic, you know? She incorporated all of our very, very specific ideas. She was creative, collaborative. It was fantastic.

Tessa: Yes, they’re so original and tailored to us.

Chloe: Well, I will pass along the message. I’m sure she will love to hear it.

Mariah: I still can’t believe that we had our dream wedding without a hitch. I mean, there are so many things that could have gone wrong, right?

Kevin: Nothing would dare go wrong on friday the 13th. It’d be too on the nose.

Mariah: You have a good point there. Hey, uh, everybody, listen up! To friday the 13th!

[ Cheers and applause ] That’s right!

[ Laughter ] And tonight’s winning numbers are 18,

Mariah: [ Laughing ] Oh, my gosh! Hey, mom!

Sharon: Hey!

Mariah: Why aren’t you out there?

Sharon: Oh…

Mariah: We could have a mother/daughter dance. Or — or we could have a mother/daughter dance-off.

Sharon: Ohh.

Mariah: Come on.

Sharon: I don’t know. I’m just really enjoying watching you two.

Mariah: [ Laughs ]

Tessa: Oh, wait, you got some cake, though, right?

Sharon: Yes, I had cake. It was so good. And you know what? Everything about this evening is just phenomenal.

Mariah: Well, I’m not gonna argue with you there. Um, do you want some more champagne? Would you like some?

Sharon: Sure. Oh, actually, this is perfect because I’ve been meaning to grab a moment to toast you two. Um… I couldn’t be happier or more proud of the two of you. And I couldn’t be more honored to witness your love and your union tonight. Here’s to a lifetime together and to all of your dreams coming true.

Mariah: Thank you, mom.

Tessa: It means so much… mom.

Sharon: I’ll take it. It feels good. It feels right.

Tessa: Yeah.

Sharon: I love you both.

Mariah: Thank you. Love you. Mwah!

Sharon: Oh!

[ Light laughter ]

Noah: You having a good time?

Allie: Yeah. Yeah, I am.

Noah: Listen, I’d, uh — I’d like to apologize to you.

Allie: For what?

Noah: Making corny jokes at crimson lights when we first met.

Allie: [ Laughing ] Oh, that.

Noah: Yeah. I promise no more abbott/newman family-feud humor.

Allie: That’s a relief because I am not very good at pretending to laugh.

Noah: Yeah, I got that.

[ Both chuckle ]

Allie: So, I heard that you are responsible for the themes and decor of this wedding. Is that true?

Noah: Yeah, I had a little bit of input.

Allie: Ah. Well, it’s quite…fanciful.

Noah: “Fanciful.” That’s a — that’s an interesting word choice.

Allie: Well, I like to be specific with my words. I feel like saying you love something these days is really meaningless. Don’t you think?

Noah: Yeah. Yeah, I feel the same way. Alright. Fanciful. I’ll take it as a compliment.

Allie: Good. It was meant as one. So, abby said you’re an artist?

Noah: I was an artist.

Allie: Does anyone stop being an artist once they are one?

Noah: It’s complicated.

Allie: Yeah, well, most things are.

Noah: Yeah.

Allie: So, what kind of art do you do?

Noah: I’ve made a couple installations around the world for the past few years. I was based in london for a while. Obviously not there anymore. And I no longer do that kind of work.

Allie: What made you stop?

Noah: I just got burnt out. And I felt like I needed a change. I wanted to come back home. So, what do you think of genoa city so far?

Abby: Hmm.

Chance: [ Sighs ]

Abby: Well, it looks like they’re getting along better than they did at crimson lights.

Chance: Yeah, well, at least he’s a familiar face. I mean, this has to be overwhelming for allie, meeting all these new people.

Abby: Yeah, especially since some of them are family members that she never knew existed.

Chance: Well, I hope everyone’s been as welcoming as you have.

Abby: Yes. I mean, I feel, as a abbott-newman-chancellor, the more family members, the merrier, right? I am worried about my uncle jack. It’s got to be hard on him. Finding out that keemo died. Then he has a granddaughter that he never met and she’s all grown up. I mean, and diane coming back from the dead.

Chance: Have you got a chance to talk to him one-on-one yet?

Abby: No, not since our family interrogation of diane the other day.

Summer: Diane, I’m not sure how much “get to know you” time we’re gonna have while we’re here.

Diane: [ Chuckles ] Can I just say something? I haven’t always been an honest person, but I have worked really hard to become one. That’s how kyle and I have been dealing with each other, with brutal honesty at times. So, you don’t have to beat around the bush or be overly polite. You can be frank. You can tell me how you feel.

Summer: Okay. Well… I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around your return. And what you did to kyle as a boy — I think it’s awful. But you aren’t my mother. So I’m taking my husband’s lead. I care about what he’s feeling first and foremost, and I’m going to love and support him while he sorts through all of this.

Diane: I appreciate that. I admire it. And I agree that what I did was horrible. And I’m just praying that kyle will eventually find a way to forgive me.

Summer: I’m not gonna make a scene, okay? I’m not gonna do that. I’m just gonna go over there and tell diane in no uncertain terms that she’s not wanted here without anyone noticing.

Jack: Okay, don’t take this the wrong way. I’m just having a little trouble believing that.

Phyllis: I own a hotel. I throw people out on their butt every day very discreetly.

Jack: Okay.

Phyllis: Okay what? What does that mean — “okay”?

Jack: I’m just saying, if somebody is going to tell diane she has to leave, it should be me. What, you think I’m giving her too much slack?

Phyllis: [ Clears throat ] I think you’re in a bad position. I think you have a big heart and you want to do right by your son. I understand that. You want to make him happy. You don’t want to butt in and upset him or aggravate diane. I get it.

Jack: I admit I am frustrated, yes.

Phyllis: See, but I’m not you. I don’t have a big heart. She’s trying to insinuate herself into my daughter’s life. That — you know what? Go dance with allie, alright? I’m gonna go talk to her. No one will notice. I promise you.

Jack: Okay. Okay. I’m saying okay, but please don’t do anything that’s gonna cause a big scene.

Phyllis: I’m not gonna cause a big scene. I’m gonna stop one from happening. Okay? I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,

Phyllis: Hey, diane. Well, this is a private event. Time for you to go.

Diane: I’m not bothering anyone.

Phyllis: How long is that gonna last?

Diane: I’m having a private conversation with my son and his wife.

Phyllis: His wife is my daughter.

Summer: We were just finishing up here.

Kyle: Phyllis, my mother just wanted to say hello to summer, and then she promised she would leave.

Phyllis: Oh, well, she’s still here.

Diane: [ Scoffs ] You know, thank you for looking out for me, kyle, but phyllis is right. I just came by to watch you officiate the wedding, but I — I should go. It was a pleasure to see you again.

Kyle: I’ll walk you out, make sure you get a cab. I’ll be back.

Phyllis: That bitch is trying to worm her way into our lives, summer. Who knows what kind of damage she’s thinking of causing.

Summer: I was wondering the exact same thing.

Phyllis: [ Breathes deeply ]

Allie: Genoa city is different than los angeles.

Noah: In a good way or bad way?

Allie: Mm, I don’t make quality judgments like that. Things are what they are. They’re not better or worse.

Noah: Okay, so, you’re analytical, you know, not subjective, kind of the opposite of the artistic mind.

Allie: [ Scoffs ] Whoa. How do you know that I’m not artistic?

Noah: I’m — I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to offend you.

Allie: Yeah, well, really, you have.

Noah: Okay.

Allie: Just kidding.

Noah: Oh, okay, so she does have a sense of humor.

[ Laughs ]

Jack: May I steal allie away? I’d like to introduce her to someone.

Allie: Oh, god. There couldn’t be any more abbotts, could there? Sorry. I’m joking.

Noah: Okay. Well, there’s no more abbotts ’cause we newmans make sure to keep their population in check.

Jack: Okay, what’s going on here?

Noah: Well, apparently we are making bad jokes.

Allie: Yeah.

[ Chuckling ] Sorry. Come on. Let’s go.

Jack: Okay.

Crystal: You, me, dance floor again.

Noah: Okay.

[ Both laugh ]

Abby: Here you go.

Chance: Why, thank you.

Abby: You seem lost in your thoughts.

Chance: Oh, no, I was just thinking about mariah and tessa’s vows. They’ve been through a whole lot this year, huh? It’s been a tough year for a lot of us.

Chance: You know, when I said our vows, I had no idea that you would have to end up rescuing me in spain, bringing me back home to our baby boy.

Abby: I know losing rey has been a shock, something you’ll be processing for a while.

Chance: It’s been tough.

Abby: I know.

Chance: But I will get through it. I promise. I just can’t imagine what sharon’s feeling.

Abby: Devastation, loss, a void that can’t be filled.

Chance: Is that what you felt when you thought I was gone?

Abby: And I’m not telling you that to make you feel guilty. I’m saying it because you are the love of my life.

Sharon: Um… girls, I-I hate to do this, but, um, I’m starting to feel a little bit jet-lagged and tired from my trip to miami. And — I’m sorry — I fully intended on staying here until the last guest left, but —

Mariah: Mom, mom! Say less, okay? There is no obligation for you to be here, so just go. You can leave.

Tessa: We appreciate everything you’ve done for us.

Nick: ’70s glam — who wore it best? I mean the brides or the people who gave away the brides?

Sharon: Well, the brides, nick.

Mariah: Obviously.

Nick: I don’t know. It might be a photo finish.

Mariah: Oh, wow.

Nick: Um, I’m crushing this outfit. Who wants to dance? Let’s dance right now.

Sharon: Actually, you know what? I was just telling the girls, um, I’m gonna get home. I’m feeling a little tired.

Nick: Okay. Uh, I’ll — I’ll go with you.

Sharon: No, no, I don’t want you to leave the party. Stay and have fun. I’ll just grab a car.

Nick: No, I’m definitely driving you home.

Mariah: We are going to rehash every moment of this night very soon.

Sharon: We’re gonna rehash this whole thing as soon as you get home from your honeymoon.

Mariah: Oh, it’s just a few days in a cabin in the woods. I mean, we’re gonna have a honeymoon that’s bigger and better once we can figure it out.

Tessa: I’m trying to make it sound more mysterious and glamorous than it actually is.

Mariah: Yeah.

Nick: Hmm.

Sharon: Did you not tell them?

Nick: No. I thought we would do it later, you know, together, as, like, a surprise.

Mariah: I-I don’t like surprises.

Nick: You’re gonna like this one. Um, your bigger, better honeymoon’s gonna be here faster than you think. Like, tomorrow, actually.

Mariah: Wha–

Nick: Yeah. An all-expense-paid trip to paris. You’re not going to some cabin. You’re going to paris.

Mariah: What?

Tessa: Uh, wait. Are — are you joking?

Nick: No. Serious. You’re gonna get all the details sent to your phone later — e-tickets, reservations. Have a blast. We love you.

Mariah: Uh, I don’t think, mom, we should leave you for so long right now.

Nick: Whose idea do you think it was?

Sharon: Nick needed help figuring out a wedding gift, and I just know that the honeymoon of your dreams would be in the city of lights. So, don’t worry about me. I’m gonna be happy just thinking about you two having the time of your life in paris!

Tessa: Uh…uh…

Mariah: Oh, my god. Thank — thank you.

Tessa: I don’t know what to say! Ahh!

Sharon: I know what to say! I know what to say! Bon voyage!

[ Laughter ]

Tessa: [ Gasps ]

Mariah: Oh, my god!

[ Up-tempo music plays ]

[ Laughter ] Dr. Harmon: We are america’s doctors.

Mariah: Hi.

Tessa: Hi. [ Chuckles ]

Mariah: Best night ever.

Tessa: Ingrained in my mind forever. Everyone seems to be having a great time, too.

Noah: What’s up, jet-setter?

Summer: Hi. Thanks. You bartending this shindig, too?

Noah: I guess I have to, to catch up with my sister nowadays. Seems like we only see each other at weddings — victoria’s, this one.

Summer: Mm. When I saw you in tuscany, you were thinking about coming to genoa city for a quick visit, and now it seems like you’ve grown roots.

Noah: I guess I’m enjoying the slower pace.

Summer: Well, it looks like you found ways to flex your artistic side. This place looks great.

Noah: Wow, was — was that an actual compliment?

Summer: Uh, don’t get used to it. You’re still annoying.

Noah: Oh.

Summer: Dad can’t stop gushing about working with you. It’s kind of sickening.

Noah: Oh, okay, I got you. Jealous. That’s what it is.

Summer: Mm.

Noah: Yeah.

Summer: Mm. Yeah. I’m living a life of misery in milan. High fashion, café life, happy marriage…

Noah: Okay, okay.

Summer: …Adorable stepson.

Noah: Yeah, way to rub it in the single guy’s face. Where is mr. Wonderful anyway?

Summer: Oh, he — he stepped outside for a second.

Noah: Is everything okay?

Summer: I’m not sure what you’ve heard.

Noah: Well, I know kyle’s mother has re-appeared.

Summer: She crashed the wedding.

Noah: Did she? I hadn’t noticed. Is she causing problems or…

Summer: Kyle’s putting her in a taxi right now to make sure that can’t happen. She said she just wanted to come and see him officiate the ceremony and to see me, which I found odd. And I think it’s shaken kyle up.

Nick: Hey, kids. Uh, just wanted to let you know we’re taking off.

Sharon: Your dad’s driving me home.

Faith: Oh, I’ll go with you.

Sharon: No, no. You stay here. You can’t ditch your date.

Faith: Are you sure?

Sharon: Absolutely. I’ll see you at home later. Have fun.

Nick: Not too much fun.

Moses: [ Chuckles ] Your dad was joking, right?

Faith: Yeah, I think so.

Moses: It’s cool that your mom let you stay. You think she’s doing better?

Faith: She’s still grieving. I think she will be for a long time. I’m really grateful that she talks to me so honestly about it. She’s so strong, such a good role model.

Moses: It’s nice that you have someone like that in your life.

Faith: Yeah. You have devon and nate.

Moses: Yeah. I’m really lucky to have such awesome people in my life. And most of all, you.

Faith: [ Chuckles ] Ooh.

Moses: I’m really excited that we’re going to the same college.

Faith: I am, too.

Devon: Hey.

Amanda: It looks like your baby brother is head over heels! Look at that.

Devon: Yeah. I see it.

[ Chuckles ]

Amanda: Wow, you’re worried.

Devon: I’m not worried.

Amanda: You are worried.

Devon: I’m not worried. I’m not worried. I’m very happy those two are together.

Amanda: Uh-huh.

Devon: I am happy. I’m gonna probably have a talk with him soon, though.

Amanda: Ohh, a talk? Well, that sounds like a buzzkill.

Devon: No, it’s not gonna be a buzzkill. I’m just gonna warn him about being in love at such a young age, you know? They’re both about to go to college. It’s gonna be a new environment, around new people, have new experiences. And feelings can change even when you don’t expect them to.

Amanda: Well, I agree with you in theory, but I have a feeling that those warnings are gonna go through one ear and out the other because you just — you can’t tell young love a damn thing.

Devon: No?

Amanda: Mnh-mnh. Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Sharon: Thanks for the ride. Are you gonna head back to the party? You seem like you might have some more dancing in you.

Nick: Nah. My motto is “always leave with them wanting more.”

Sharon: [ Chuckles ] Everybody was having such a good time. I don’t think that anyone noticed that we left. And as much fun as it was to dress up, I cannot wait to get out of these shoes and have a cup of tea.

Nick: Well, I’m sure you’re tired, but if you’d like, i could, uh, hang out for a bit. I’ll even make the tea.

Sharon: Okay. Thank you. Although that seems like a pretty tame way to end the evening for someone as glam-tastically dressed as you.

[ Laughs ]

Diane: Ugh. Why am I not surprised? You must have rushed out of there to follow me home.

Phyllis: This is not your home, diane.

Diane: Are you stalking me now?

Phyllis: No, but you seem to be stalking kyle.

Diane: Oh, please. I wanted to catch a glimpse of my son officiating a wedding. That’s all. And you shouldn’t be calling me a party crasher when that’s exactly what you did.

Phyllis: Well, how do you figure that?

Diane: Uh, you went as jack’s plus-one, so I’m sure no one was sad to see you leave, either.

Phyllis: Okay, first of all — oh, no, no, no. You’re not me, okay? You’re not me. And nobody wants you around.

Diane: That’s not necessarily true. Kyle defended me when you were so ungraciously trying to kick me out.

Phyllis: You are misreading kyle’s actions. He doesn’t know what to say. He doesn’t know what he wants right now. But — but I have confidence that, with summer’s urging, he’ll figure out that letting you back in his life was a huge mistake.

Diane: God, this is really getting tedious. Are you done?

Phyllis: No, I’m not done! You are a cancer! You are a cancer here! I want you out! I want you gone!

Tessa: Okay, ready?

Mariah: Yeah. Hey, guys? Uh, hello? Uh, we — we just wanted to, uh — to say som–

Tessa: Hey, I got this.

[ Whistles ] Thank you.

[ Laughs ] Well, we just want to give a final thank-you to all of you for coming and making this such a magical night.

Mariah: And thank you to our friends and our family for helping to put this together. It’s insane.

Tessa: And I want to thank my sister, crystal, for coming and making this a dream come true.

[ Cheers and applause ]

Mariah: And I want to thank crystal for agreeing to spend the night at the grand phoenix so we can have the apartment to ourselves.

[ Laughter ]

Tessa: Alright, we’ve done our vows.

Mariah: Mm-hmm.

Tessa: We’ve eaten cake. And we’ve danced till our feet went numb, so…

Mariah: We’re out of here, suckers! Bye!

Faith: Wait a minute! There’s still one more thing to do.

Tessa: Oh.

Mariah: Oh.

Tessa: Oh.

Mariah: [ Laughs ]

Tessa: Wow. Okay.

Mariah: Um…

Tessa: Alright.

Mariah: I guess we’re doing this.

Tessa: We’re doing this.

Mariah: Alright, together.

Tessa: Together.

Both: One, two, three.

Chloe: Oh! Uh, well, I think it’s a little too late for me.

Kevin: [ Laughs ]

Chloe: Um, okay.

Abby: Oh!

Devon: Who.

Abby: [ Chuckles ] Well, this thing is like a homing device for married women.

Mariah: Okay, we’ve got to give it one more try, right? I mean, this one will be the winner, okay?

Abby: Okay, let’s do it. Here we go!

[ Gasping, laughter ]

Jack: Um… I think I’ve been married more than anyone in this room.

[ Laughter ] I don’t know how I feel about this.

[ Laughter ] Well, the next time’s a charm, right?

[ Cheers and applause ]

Want a worry-free

way to kill bugs?

Sharon: You know, you were dancing so enthusiastically, at one point, I got worried that you were gonna do the splits or something.

Nick: It was tempting, but i couldn’t risk a torn hamstring.

Sharon: Wasn’t the ceremony beautiful? And the girls were so happy.

Nick: They really were.

Sharon: I hope that for the rest of their lives they’ll always be happy and healthy and in love. But I hate that life has taught me that that’s not always possible.

Nick: Sharon, I know life can be, uh, tough and very cruel at times. But mariah and tessa — no matter what they face in the future, they know they will always have a very loving and supporting family that they can count on.

Sharon: Thanks for always being here when I need you. Especially these last few weeks. I don’t think I could have gotten through them without you.

Nick: Well, I hope you know you can always count on me.

Diane: I’d offer you a drink, but I don’t want to.

Phyllis: Oh, that’s okay. I don’t want one. Um, so, I’m going to talk to you as, uh, the owner of this hotel. Um, I let you stay here because you wanted to talk to kyle and — what? — Make peace. I also wanted to keep an eye on you. But, see, you’ve talked to kyle, and now it’s in his hands. You keep on teasing us, saying you’re leaving — “I’m leaving” — but you’re still here. So, I’m gonna make it real easy on you. Get the hell out of my hotel, diane.

Diane: You can order me out of your hotel, but you can’t make me leave town, and I am staying right here until kyle decides one way or another. I believe that kyle is capable of forgiving me. And maybe jack, too.

Phyllis: Oh, my… you are delusional.

Kyle: Mmm. I’ve missed you so much.

Summer: I can’t imagine how difficult this has been for you. It was so painful when I wasn’t sure who my father was. I — just the confusion of not knowing my place or my identity. It might be a bit like what you’re going through.

Kyle: It’s hard for me to figure out exactly how to feel. I’m happy you’re here. And I don’t expect you to have an opinion or anything.

Summer: Oh, but I do.

Kyle: Really? ‘Cause you just met my mother. Or re-met her.

Summer: I saw all I needed to see when I caught the way she looked at my mom earlier. It was pure anger and jealousy. I don’t think that woman can be trusted for a second.

Kyle: [ Sighs ] If you’re washing with the bargain brand,

Allie: So, how many times have you been married?

Jack: That is a story for another time. How about some tea?

[ Doorbell rings ] Oh. Who is that?

Phyllis: Hey! I have an update. Oh, am I interrupting?

Jack: Uh, no, you’re not interrupting. Come on in.

Phyllis: Okay. I have details —

Jack: About?

Allie: You know what? I think I’m gonna head up to bed.

Jack: Alright.

Phyllis: Good night.

Jack: Good night, allie. So, what is going on? You disappeared from the reception.

Phyllis: Yeah, because I went to the hotel to confront diane.

Jack: Phyllis —

Phyllis: No, I didn’t make a scene. It was no big deal. But, um, she will be leaving town now.

Jack: Wait. What makes you think that?

Phyllis: Uh…I kicked her out of my hotel.

Jack: Okay. Well, there wasn’t a big scene at the wedding.

Phyllis: No, and I also told her no one wants here here. That’s it. Listen. Do you have problem a with my doing this? I mean, I thought you would be a little bit more appreciative. Are you still on the fence about having diane here?

Jack: I want kyle to get some closure, and I don’t think he’s gotten it yet. And your putting your foot on the scale probably doesn’t help. If she feels forced out, it could backfire on us, and as much as I hate the idea, kyle still needs time with his mother.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Alright. I just let my own hatred for diane get the best of me, i guess. Sorry. I apologize.

Jack: No, no, don’t — don’t apol– don’t apologize. You were being you, and I happen to like you.

Phyllis: Thank you. It was a lovely night otherwise.

Jack: It was, wasn’t it?

Phyllis: Yeah. Thank you for asking me to be your date.

Jack: Is that what you were?

Phyllis: Yeah, I was your date. Thank you.

Jack: My date.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Allie caught the bouquet.

Jack: Uh, no. I caught the bouquet.

Phyllis: You caught it?

Jack: Uh-huh.

Phyllis: That’s a first.

Jack: Well, the first to catch a bouquet. Walking down the aisle — i think I’ve done that for the last time.

Phyllis: No. I don’t know if it’s the last time for you.

Jack: One night without thinking about diane. Is that too much to ask for?

Phyllis: It is not too much to a– let’s dance. You want to dance with me? Let’s dance.

Jack: Um…

Phyllis: Let’s go.

Jack: Okay.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Tessa: [ Gasps ] Ooh. Oh, my goodness.

Mariah: Wow. Oh, my gosh.

Tessa: Wow, this is so beautiful.

Mariah: Yeah.

[ Both laugh ] Look at this.

Tessa: Oh, my gosh. Ah! We did it!

[ Both laugh ]

Mariah: Oh, wow. We’re married.

Tessa: Whew. Um…

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Tessa: What’s next?

Mariah: I mean, the sky’s the limit…starting right now.

Recap written by Christine

Mariah and Tessa’s wedding reception was underway at Top of the Tower, and most of the guests were on the dance floor. Nick complimented Sharon on pulling off the wedding for the ages in no time at all. She said the best thing about tonight was Mariah and Tessa. He asked her to dance. She noted that he and Chance both mentioned that Rey loved to dance. She wasn’t really interested, but she suggested he ask Summer. He was delighted about the opportunity to embarrass all his kids tonight, so he went over to talk to his daughter. Phyllis asked Jack to dance, and he said he normally would, but he wanted to ask Allie, because she was by herself. Phyllis supported that. Jack went over and asked his granddaughter to dance, and she said she didn’t usually dance at weddings, but she accepted.

Diane was still lurking in the shadows. Kyle came upon Summer and Nick dancing and asked to borrow her for a minute. Nick went to go dance with the brides. Kyle told Summer that Diane wanted to say hello. Summer was wary, but she went to meet Diane. Diane said she’d followed Summer’s career and was impressed by her. Diane said Summer clearly made Kyle very happy. Summer said Kyle made her extremely happy as well. Diane said that was wonderful, as love was hard to find and harder to keep. Diane was hoping she and Summer could slowly forge a relationship. She promised not to be the typical annoying mother in law. Summer said nothing about this was typical.

Summer wasn’t sure how much time they’d have to get to know Diane while they were in town. Diane explained that she’d worked really hard to become an honest person, and she and Kyle were dealing with things by being brutally honest. Diane wanted Summer to speak her mind without being overly polite. Summer thought that what Diane did to Kyle as a boy was awful, but since Diane wasn’t her mother, she was taking her husband’s lead on this. Summer cared about Kyle’s feelings first and foremost, and she was going to love and support him while he sorted through this. Diane admired that. She agreed that what she did was horrible, and she hoped Kyle would forgive her.

Jack was with Phyllis again, and they spotted Diane with Summer and Kyle. Phyllis wanted to stop Diane from insinuating herself into Summer’s life, but Jack reminded Phyllis that they didn’t want to escalate things on Tessa and Mariah’s day. Phyllis said she wouldn’t make a scene – she’d just quietly let Diane know she wasn’t welcome. Jack was skeptical. Phyllis said she owned a hotel, and she discreetly threw people out every day. Jack thought that if anyone should kick Diane out, it was him. He wondered if Phyllis thought he was giving Diane too much slack. Phyllis thought Jack was in a tough position – he didn’t want to upset Kyle or aggravate Diane. Unlike Jack, Phyllis said she didn’t have a big heart. She told him to go dance with Allie, while she handled this. He cautioned her again not to cause a scene. She said she was going to go prevent a scene.

Phyllis told Diane to leave. Diane said that she was having a private conversation with her son and his wife. Phyllis noted that Kyle’s wife was her daughter. Kyle said Diane promised to leave after she said hi to Summer. Diane admitted Phyllis was right – she should go. She told Summer it was a pleasure, then Kyle walked Diane out. Phyllis told Summer that that bitch was trying to worm her way into their lives, and who knew what damage she was thinking of causing. Summer had been wondering the same thing.

Crystal and Kevin complimented each other’s toasts while Mariah, Tessa and Chloe stood by. Crystal wanted to thank Kevin’s brother for everything he did to help get the charges against her dropped. Kevin was sure he could arrange for her to meet Michael. He asked how long she’d be here for. She didn’t know. Tessa wanted Crystal to stay forever. Mariah toasted to Crystal, welcoming her back. They talked about the amazing job Chelsea did on the wedding dresses. Mariah couldn’t believe the dream wedding went off without a hitch. Kevin said nothing would dare go wrong on Friday the 13th – it would be too on the nose. Mariah called out to the crowd and toasted to Friday the 13th.

Mariah asked Sharon for a mother/daughter dance. Sharon was just enjoying watching Tessa and Mariah. Sharon toasted and said she couldn’t be happier or more proud or more honored to witness their love. Mariah and Tessa called Sharon mom, and Sharon loved it. She kissed both brides.

Noah apologized to Allie for the corny jokes he made when they first met at Crimson Lights. He promised not to joke about the Newman Abbott feud anymore. She said that was a relief, because she wasn’t good at pretending to laugh. She heard he was responsible for the theme of the wedding. She thought it was fanciful. He thought that was an interesting word choice. She felt like saying you loved something had become meaningless these days. He agreed. He said he’d take fanciful as a compliment, and she said it was meant to be one. She recalled Abby saying he was an artist. He said he was once – he did installations in London for a few years, but he got burnt out and came back home for a change. He asked what she thought of Genoa City.

Across the room, Abby noted to Chance that Allie and Noah seemed to be getting along better than they did at Crimson Light. Chance said Noah was a familiar face – it must be overwhelming to meet so many people. Abby felt bad for Jack – it must be hard to know that Keemo died and that he had a grown granddaughter he’d never known, then Diane came back from the dead.

Allie said Genoa City was different than LA. Noah asked if that was good or bad. Allie didn’t make quality judgments like that – things were what they were. He said she was analytical, not subjective, the opposite of artistic. She was offended he assumed she wasn’t artistic. Once he apologized, she revealed that she was only kidding. He noted that she did have a sense of humor. Jack came up and asked to steal Allie to introduce her to someone. “Oh God, there couldn’t be any more Abbotts could there?,” Allie gasped. The others were speechless until she told them it was a joke. Noah said the Newmans kept the Abbott population in check. Jack asked what was going on. Noah said, and Allie agreed, that they were making bad jokes. Jack and Allie walked off. Crystal came up behind Noah and put her arms around him. She wanted to dance again.

Abby brought Chance some champagne. He was deep in thought, thinking about all the stuff Mariah and Tessa went through this year. He said when he said his vows to Abby, he had no idea she’d end up rescuing him in Spain and bringing him home to their baby. She knew losing Rey had been a shock. He promised he’d get through it. He couldn’t imagine how Sharon felt. Abby could, because she’d felt it when she thought she lost Chance. Abby said Chance was the love of her life, and they kissed.

Sharon told Tessa and Mariah she was tired from her trip to Miami. She was apologetic, but Mariah and Tessa assured her it was fine to go. Nick came up and asked to dance with the brides, but when he found out Sharon was going home, he insisted on driving her home. Sharon said they’d talk once they were back from their honeymoon. Mariah said it was just a few days in a cabin in the woods. They were going to have a bigger better honeymoon once they came up with an idea. Tessa said she was trying to make it sound more mysterious and glamorous than it really was. Sharon realized Nick didn’t tell Mariah and Tessa. Nick said it was a surprise. Mariah was nervous because she didn’t like surprises. He said she’d like this one – he informed her that she and Tessa were going on a trip to Paris tomorrow. All expenses paid. Mariah and Tessa were shocked, but Mariah didn’t think they should leave Sharon now. Nick said it was Sharon’s idea. Sharon said that Nick had trouble figuring out a wedding gift, and Sharon knew the honeymoon of Tessa and Mariah’s dreams was in the city of lights. Tessa and Mariah hugged Sharon and Nick, and Nick and Tessa started dancing. Later, Mariah ran her hand up Tessa’s thigh as they sat together. Mariah said it was the best night ever. Tessa would remember it forever.

Noah chatted with Summer. He noted that it seemed like he only saw his sister at weddings these days. The last time they saw each other was in Tuscany. She complimented him on the wedding decorations, but she told him not to get used to that because he was still annoying. She said their dad couldn’t stop gushing about working with him. He teased that she was jealous, and she replied that she was miserable in Milan, with the high fashion, cafes, happy marriage and adorable stepson. “Way to rub it in the single guy’s face,” he replied. He asked where Kyle was. Summer explained that Diane crashed the wedding, and so he was putting her in a cab. Summer thought it was odd that Diane had wanted to see her.

Sharon and Nick told Faith they were leaving. Faith was going to go too, but Sharon told Faith to stay and have fun with her date. Nick said not to have too much fun, then he signaled that he had his eye on Moses. Nick and Sharon left. Moses hoped Nick was just joking. Faith thought so. Moses asked how Sharon was. Faith said she was still grieving, but she was talking honestly with Faith about it, and that made Faith happy. They talked about role models – he felt lucky to have Devon and Nate in his life. Most of all, he was happy to have Faith, and he was excited they were going to the same college.

Amanda grinned watching Faith and Moses kiss. She thought Devon seemed worried. He said he wasn’t worried, but he was going ot have a talk with Moses about young love in college. When you were in new environment, feelings could change unexpectedly. Laughing, Amanda said she had a feeling those warning would go in one ear and out the other, because you couldn’t tell young love a damn thing. Devon and Amanda kissed.

Mariah and Tessa thanked everyone for making this a wonderful night. Tessa thanked Crystal for coming. Everyone “oohed” when Mariah thanked Crystal for spending the night at The Grand Phoenix so the newlyweds could have some privacy. Tessa and Mariah did the bouquet toss, and it fell in Chloe’s lap. Chuckling, she noted that it was too late for her, so she tossed it again. It went to Abby, who said this thing was like a homing device for married women. Mariah said they’d do it one more time, and this one would be the winner. Abby threw it again, and Jack caught it. “I think I’ve been married more than anyone in this room,” he commented. He wasn’t sure how he felt about this, but he decided that it meant his next marriage would be the charm. Everyone applauded.

Kyle and Summer held each other. He was so glad she was here. She couldn’t imagine what he was going through. It was so painful when she didn’t know who her dad was – she didn’t know her identity. She wondered if that might feel a bit like how he did. He didn’t know exactly how he felt, but he was glad she was here. He didn’t expect her to have an opinion. She said she did. He was surprised since she just met his mom – or re-met her. Summer saw everything she needed to when she caught the way Diane was looking at Phyllis earlier. Summer saw the pure anger and jealousy on Diane’s face. She didn’t think Diane could be trusted.

At the cottage, Sharon said she couldn’t wait to get out of these shoes and have tea. He said he’d make it, and she accepted. Sharon smiled about Nick’s enthusiastic dancing, then she said the girls were so happy. She hoped they’d be happy, healthy and in love for the rest of their lives, but life had taught her that wasn’t always possible. He knew life would be tough, but Mariah and Tessa knew they had a loving and supportive family they could count on. She thanked him for always being there when she needed him, especially in the last couple weeks. She wasn’t sure she could’ve gotten through it without him. He said he’d always be there for her.

Phyllis went to Diane’s suite, and they had it out over Diane crashing the wedding. Diane said that Phyllis wasn’t invited either – she’d gone as Jack’s plus-one. Diane was sure no one was sad to see Phyllis go. Phyllis said Diane wasn’t her, and nobody wanted Diane around. Diane said that Kyle defended her. Phyllis said Kyle didn’t know what he wanted, but she had confidence that, with Summer’s urging, he’d realize letting Diane in his life was a huge mistake. Diane found the conversation tedious and asked if Phyllis was done. Phyllis yelled that she wasn’t. “You are a cancer here. I want you out. I want you gone!,” Phyllis snapped.

Diane made a drink for herself and said she didn’t want to give one to Phyllis. Phyllis didn’t want a drink. Phyllis let Diane stay earlier because she wanted to talk to Kyle, and because Phyllis wanted to keep an eye on Diane. Phyllis felt it was time for Diane to go, and she told her to get the hell out of this hotel. Diane said Phyllis could kick her out of the hotel, but she couldn’t make her leave town. Diane decided to stay until Kyle made up his mind. Diane thought Kyle would forgive her, and maybe Jack too. Diane smirked and sipped her drink. Phyllis called Diane delusional.

At the Abbott house, Allie held the bouquet and asked Jack how many times he’d been married. He said it was a story for another day, and he offered her tea. Just then, Phyllis showed up, so Allie went to up to bed. Phyllis said Diane would be leaving town, because Phyllis kicked her out of the hotel and told her no one wanted her here. Phyllis had thought Jack would look more appreciative than this. Jack wanted Kyle to get closure, and that hadn’t happened yet, and if Phyllis forced Diane out, that could backfire. As much as Jack hated the idea, Kyle needed time with his mother. Phyllis apologized, but Jack said Phyllis was just being herself, and he liked that. She thanked him for asking her to be his date. He asked if that was what she was, and she said yes – she was his date. She assumed Allie caught the bouquet, and he explained that he did. He didn’t think he’d get married again, but she thought he would. She kissed him and smiled.

Diane was in her suite remembering the reception. She’d overheard Jack say he wanted one night without thinking about Diane. Diane bristled as she recalled watching Jack dance with Phyllis.

Mariah and Tessa got home and gasped. The living room was filled with flower arrangements and there were rose petals scattered about. Tessa wondered what was next. Mariah said the sky was the limit, starting now. They shared a passionate kiss.

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Kyle: Welcome to the wedding of mariah copeland and tessa porter. Weddings are generally solemn occasions. Two people proclaiming their love and commitment to each other in a very public forum requires some seriousness, after all. And while tessa and mariah take their commitment to each other very seriously, this wedding will be…”the funkiest, grooviest, most bad-ass wedding you’ve ever been to.”

[ Laughter ]

[ Cheers and applause ]

Kyle: Tessa and mariah have written their own vows to each other that they would like to share with us at this time. Tessa.

Tessa: [ Sighs ] I knew today would be the happiest day of my life, because it was the day that we begin our married life together. I’m not gonna lie, I — I never thought I would be here, because I had given up on love and everything that comes with it. But you broke down all my walls. You saw all of me.

[ Chuckles ] The best of me, the worst.

[ Both laugh ] And you embraced me entirely. Our connection is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. It fills my soul and inspires me. Every lyric and every note of every song is about you and the love that we share together, because everything that I’ve learned about love is because of you. I have many more songs to write, so I can’t wait for our future together. And I can’t wait to see what lessons we learn along our beautiful adventure. I promise to be your partner through all of it. Your best friend, your champion, and your shoulder to lean on, now and always.

Mariah: Wow.

[ Both laugh ] You got me all teary.

[ Laughs ] Okay.

[ Sighs ] Even though I have wanted this for so long, I cannot believe that we are actually here. Growing up, wishes like this just didn’t come true for me. And I never had much. And then a miracle happened — the first miracle of the two great miracles of my life. I found my mom.

[ Sniffles ] And sharon has taught me so much. I’ve learned so much from her. I learned how to love, and i learned how important it is, so I was ready for you when you came along. Even though I didn’t exactly know what was happening at first.

[ Laughs ] I just thought…I had met an amazing person who was gonna become my friend. And I soon realized that it was, you know, a bit more than friendship. And the date — our first date that kyle set up — when you held my hand, it just felt right. And looking around now, it all feels so right. Tessa, I am so grateful that you are in my life.

[ Chuckles ] And I swear you are magic.

[ Both laugh ] You are like an alchemist — everything you touch turns to gold. And so here we are, committing our lives to each other, about to start our own family, and i know that that’s gonna be golden, too. I also know there are gonna be good times and there are gonna be bad times. But, tessa, I promise you that I am going to be right by your side, holding your hand through it all, just like I am now.

[ Sniffles ] Because when we are together, there is nothing that we can’t do. I love you and I am yours today and tomorrow and forever. I’m on a mission to talk to people about

The role of

summer newman-abbott is now

being played by allison lanier.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Allie: Do you need help?

Summer: Hi.

Allie: Hi.

Summer: Oh, you must be allie.

Allie: I am.

Summer: I’m summer, kyle’s wife.

Allie: Oh, right. Of course. I heard you were coming.

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Allie: It’s nice to meet you. Here, let me help you.

Summer: Oh.

Allie: Here. Oh, my god.

[ Laughs ]

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Allie: Here you go.

Summer: [ Chuckles ] Oh, my god, thank you. I tried to pack light for this trip, but it didn’t work out. I am my mother’s daughter.

Allie: Phyllis, right?

Summer: Yeah.

Allie: Yeah.

Summer: Oh, my god, you must have met so many people since you’ve been here.

Allie: Yeah, yeah, there were a lot of names to put with faces.

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Allie: I met all the abbotts at once.

Summer: They were all together?

Allie: Yeah, I interrupted a family meeting.

Summer: Mm, I bet I know what that was about.

Allie: [ Sighs ] Yeah, it was pretty awkward walking in on that. And, you know, but they’ve all been really, really nice.

Summer: Even billy?

Allie: Yes, even billy. He’s been great. You know, I actually met your mom while I was out in la.

Summer: Hmm.

Allie: She’s one of the big reasons that I’m here. She’s been really supportive of jack and I to spend time together.

Summer: Hmm, well, if she was encouraging you to come out here, you must have passed her test. She can be supportive, but she’s also super protective of jack, of anyone she loves, really.

Allie: Oh, yeah, yeah, I have seen that side of her, too. When she heard that kyle’s mom was alive and had orchestrated the whole thing, oh, man, she was not happy about that.

Summer: Rightfully so. This whole thing has been so crazy. It’s been really hard on kyle.

Allie: He’ll be really glad that you’re here.

Summer: Well, he won’t be thrilled that I’m late, which wasn’t my fault, by the way. My flight was delayed. But I do need to get to the wedding, so we better get dressed and ready.

Allie: Wait, we?

Summer: Yeah. You’re coming with me, right?

Kyle: Tessa, will you take mariah to be your wife? Will you love, honor, and cherish mariah and remain faithful to her as long as you both shall live?

Tessa: I will.

Kyle: Mariah, will you take tessa to be your wife? Will you love, honor, and cherish tessa and remain faithful to her as long as you both shall live?

Mariah: I will.

[ Both laugh ]

Kyle: Excellent.

[ Whispers ] You two are doing great.

Kevin: [ Chuckles ]

Kyle: We will now have the exchange of the rings. Does the maid and man of honor have the rings?

Kevin: The man of honor does.

Crystal: The maid of honor does.

Tessa: This ring is a symbol of my everlasting love. With it, I offer all that I am and all that I hope to be.

Kevin: [ Chuckles ]

Mariah: This ring is a symbol of my everlasting love. And with it, I offer all that i am and all that I hope to be.

Kyle: It is my honor to pronounce mariah copeland and tessa porter officially — and as you can see, blissfully — married.

Tessa: [ Exhales sharply ]

Kyle: Come on, you can now kiss the bride.

Mariah: Oh, thank you!

[ Applause ]

[ Both laugh ]

Tessa: [ Laughs ] We are america’s doctors. And some of us…

Allie: Wait, you want me to go to the wedding?

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, I don’t think so.

Summer: You have to. I’m sure you’re invited, and if not, you’re my personal guest.

Allie: Which I really appreciate. Jack did invite me, it’s just that I am not comfortable going.

Summer: But you’ll know people there — I mean, me, jack, kyle, my mom.

Allie: Yes, but I’ve never even met the happy couple.

Summer: Oh, don’t even worry about those two. They have a “more the merrier” mentality. I mean, if mariah wants me there, I’m sure she would welcome a stranger like you with open arms.

Allie: You two don’t get along?

Summer: Hmm, not since the first time we met.

Allie: [ Chuckles ]

Summer: But as big of a pain as she can be, she’s kyle’s best friend, and tessa’s pretty cool.

Allie: Yeah, yeah, I am a big fan of her music.

Summer: Well, then think of this as an opportunity to meet her in person. It’s gonna be a fun wedding. And we’re late, so we’re missing all the boring parts. It’ll just be a big party.

Allie: Yeah, thing is, I am not really a big party person.

Summer: Oh, did I say a big party? No, I meant a small, delightful gathering of pleasant and friendly individuals.

Allie: Oh, right, right, right. Somehow I don’t think I should be trusting you.

Summer: Hmm, probably not, but I don’t think that you should stay in this enormous old house by yourself. It’s probably haunted.

Allie: Really? Really, you’re gonna scare me into going with you?

Summer: [ Scoffs ] Come to the wedding, allie. I promise you, you’re gonna have a good time. And if you don’t, you can come back here and never take my word for anything ever again. Deal?

Allie: Okay, okay, I will go.

Summer: Yes! You won’t regret this.

Allie: Yeah, but the problem is I don’t have anything to wear.

Summer: That’s not a problem at all. See, I just got off the plane from milan, the fashion capital of the world, with all of these enormous suitcases, so we’ve got plenty of options. We’ll find you the perfect outfit. Now let’s get ready.

Allie: [ Sighs ]

Faith: Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming mariah and tessa as they share their first dance as a married couple.

[ Cheers and applause ]

Tessa: We did it.

Mariah: Yes, we did. Got dressed up in fancy dresses and got our hair did and in front of all of these people said, “I love this woman and i want her to be my wife.”

Tessa: We did. And you look amazing.

Mariah: You look more amazing.

Tessa: Do you think that’s why everyone’s staring at us? Because we looking amazing?

Mariah: I think that’s exactly why.

Nick: I know what you’re thinking.

Sharon: Yeah? What?

Nick: Rey would’ve loved this.

Sharon: That’s exactly it. I know he would have said this is the most beautiful wedding he’s ever seen, since ours.

Nick: He’s here. He’s with us. So is cassie.

Kevin: I am so proud of them. You know, there was a time i didn’t think their relationship would survive. But all the obstacles, all the pain they caused each other, it didn’t tear them apart. You know why? I will tell you why — because the love is always there. Just goes to show you, the power of love can conquer all. Ow. What was that for?

Chloe: You know what. Our relationship should’ve taught you that. Everything that we have been through ought to have proved that if two people are meant to be, then they are meant to be.

Kevin: Well, of course, but, you know, with mariah and tessa, it was shaky. Things were touch-and-go for a while. We didn’t know that they were gonna have a happy ending. But with you and me, babe, baby bird, it was written in the stars. There was never any doubting our love.

Chloe: Oh, nice save, fisher.

Kevin: Thank you.

[ Chuckles ]

Chloe: You know what I think is so amazing about this wedding?

Kevin: What’s that?

Chloe: Just a few years ago, this never would have happened. It wasn’t legal. And now, no one would even question it. Two people should be able to marry whoever they want, and that is the real power of love.

Kevin: Well said. May I have this dance?

Chloe: Yes, you may.

Tessa: Oh, I’m so happy.

Mariah: Me too. I am so deliriously happy.

Tessa: I love you so much.

Mariah: I love you, too. Hi, I’m karen.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Tessa: Okay. I could use a break.

Mariah: What? No! You said this was gonna be a dance competition. You’re gonna ruin our chances for the grand prize.

Tessa: Well, I already have the grand prize, and I have a ring to prove it. Do you want some champagne?

Mariah: Oh, yes, please. I would love some.

Amanda: One second, ladies.

Mariah: Hi!

Amanda: I just have to say congratulations. And your vows were absolutely beautiful.

Tessa: Thank you.

Abby: You both looked gorgeous up there.

Tessa: Oh, don’t stop dancing on account of us. We’re just getting some champagne.

Mariah: Yes, save a dance for me, okay?

Chance: Who should save a dance?

Mariah: All of you. All of you save a dance because I’m dancing with all of you before the night is over. Got it?

Devon: You heard her.

Tessa: Hi.

Noah: Hey, crystal.

Crystal: Noah, I heard you did all this. Great job. You crushed it.

Noah: Oh, well, thank you. My instructions were very clear. They said, “make it look like a wedding, but not a wedding-wedding.”

Crystal: That’s helpful.

Noah: That’s mariah.

Crystal: Well, mission accomplished. It looks amazing.

Noah: Well, thank you, but you know what’s really amazing? You being here for your sister. I don’t think anything could’ve made tessa happier.

Crystal: I’m so glad I could be here for her.

Noah: Well, I want to hear what you’re gonna do with this newfound freedom of yours, but we don’t have to talk around the boring old bar. Care to dance?

Crystal: Lead the way.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Kyle: You are here. Thank god, I’ve missed you.

Summer: I’ve missed you, too. We have a lot to talk about.

Kyle: [ Chuckles ] Hey, allie. Sorry, I didn’t see you there.

Allie: [ Chuckles ] No need to ever apologize for being glad to see your wife.

Phyllis: Supergirl! Oh, my god, supergirl! Look at this dress. That’s amazing.

Jack: It’s been too long, kid. Get over here.

Summer: Oh, yeah?

Jack: Get over here.

Summer: Did I miss something big?

Jack: Uh, you don’t know the half of it. You look beautiful.

Allie: Thank you, jack.

Jack: Let me guess, you ran into summer at the house and she dragged you here.

Allie: You know, she can be very persuasive.

[ Laughter ]

Jack: Don’t know where she gets that. Hey. Let me show you around. I got a few people I’d love to introduce you to.

Allie: Yeah, that sounds awesome.

Summer: You’re doing great, allie.

Phyllis: Hey, I missed you. I missed you so much. Not as much as kyle, of course.

Summer: Well, I’m here now for whatever you need.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. Okay, well, I’ll let you guys catch up. I’m not gonna hover. I’ll, you know —

Summer: Mm, look at you, mom, reading the room.

Phyllis: I read the room.

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Kyle: I missed you.

Summer: Missed you.

Amanda: So I need to know — are you two going on a honeymoon?

Devon: Oh, yeah.

Tessa: Yes.

Mariah: Yes.

Tessa: But the details are confidential.

Mariah: Mm-hmm.

Amanda: Okay, no, you can tell me. Yes, you can. Come on, come on. It’ll be our little sec– our little secret.

Devon: [ Laughs ] She gonna get it out of her.

Mariah: Oh, well, great. That’s perfect.

[ Laughs ]

Devon: Gosh, I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am that this day has come for you.

[ Chuckles ]

Mariah: Thank you. Yeah, I am so happy that you could be here to celebrate.

Devon: Are you kidding me? Of course I’m here to celebrate with you, after everything we’ve been through — friendship, business, dating, friendship again.

Mariah: Yeah, that’s — that’s a lot.

Devon: Yeah. You helped bring an amazing new life into the world. But I’ll tell you, I’ve never seen you like you look today. You’re glowing. Looks like you have sunlight coming out of you.

Mariah: See? That is exactly what I was saying. I’m, like, happy — deliriously happy. And I don’t know what it is about this marriage thing, maybe it’s turning me into a sap.

Devon: No, that’s impossible.

Mariah: Well, since we are being sentimental, I just wanted to say thank you. Because I wouldn’t be here without you. I wouldn’t be with tessa without you, and I wouldn’t feel this happiness. Damn it, I think I’m gonna cry again.

Devon: It’s okay. You can cry. Come here.

[ Chuckles ] When my blonde is luminous, i feel luminous.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Jack: Hello.

Chance: Hey!

Abby: Allie.

Allie: Hello.

Abby: Hi. You’re here.

Allie: I am.

Abby: I’m glad. I love your dress.

Allie: Oh, thank you. I had help.

Abby: Well, whoever helped you has great taste.

Allie: Summer.

Abby: Of course.

Jack: Well, I wanted to introduce her to chance.

Chance: Well, we actually got to meet briefly earlier today. Yeah, sorry we were in such a rush, I didn’t get the opportunity to properly welcome you to genoa city. So welcome.

Allie: Thanks, chance.

Jack: I think the ladies of the hour are free. If you’ll excuse us, please.

Amanda: So…

Phyllis: Hey.

Amanda: I didn’t expect to see you here.

Phyllis: Jack invited me.

Amanda: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: “Mm-hmm” — what does that mean?

Amanda: [ Scoffs ] It means that every time I talk to you, you say that you two are just friends, but I don’t know, I don’t think that a friend invites their buddy to a wedding.

Phyllis: He invited me because he knew summer was gonna be here.

Amanda: Uh-huh. Okay, if you say so. If you say so.

Jack: Mariah, tessa, I’d love for you to meet my granddaughter allie.

Allie: So lovely meeting you guys. Congratulations.

Tessa: Thank you.

Mariah: Kyle has told us so much about you. So welcome to our wedding.

[ Chuckles ]

Allie: I hope it’s alright that I’m here.

Tessa: Oh, of course, we’re glad to have you.

Mariah: Any granddaughter of jack’s is a friend of ours.

Allie: You know, summer did say you would feel that way.

Mariah: Oh, well, summer is a lot to take, but I have to admit it, she and kyle are perfect together.

[ Chuckles ]

Tessa: Well, I can relate.

Mariah: Oh.

Nick: Oh, it’s so good to see you, supergirl.

Summer: Oh, I miss this hug.

Faith: Me next, me next!

Summer: [ Laughs ] Hey, faith. It feels like it’s been forever.

Faith: I missed you so much. Did you bring me back any clothes? I want to know all about your job. Is it hard? How’s your italian?

Nick: Okay, okay, summer just got here. You can grill her later. These two have a lot to catch up on, so you’re with me. Come on. Have fun.

Kyle: Mm.

Summer: You look tired.

Kyle: I haven’t been sleeping well. I wanted you here with me and to tell you about everything, and not just video chat or on the phone. I need you here with me.

Summer: I’m here. I wish I had come with you and harrison when you first left.

Kyle: Yeah, me too, but we had no idea what was in store for me. After we leave here, we’ll go back to the house and sit down and I’ll tell you everything about what’s been going on.

Summer: [ Chuckles ] Good. I am all yours.

Meet ron.

Jack: Hey, there.

Phyllis: Hey! Hi. Where’s allie?

Jack: She’s over talking to tessa. Apparently, she’s a big fan of tessa’s music.

Phyllis: Oh, wow, that’s great.

Jack: It’s just been lovely. Not just a romantic wedding, but it’s been a welcome respite from all the crises in our lives.

Phyllis: Yeah, that’s true, that’s true.

Jack: Didn’t actually know i needed a break.

Phyllis: Oh. Me neither.

Jack: Just one night without thinking about diane. Is that too much to ask?

Phyllis: It is not too much to a– let’s dance. You want to dance with me? Let’s dance.

Jack: Um…

Phyllis: Let’s go.

Jack: Okay.

Noah: I’ve only been back in town a couple months myself.

Crystal: So how was london?

Noah: Parts of it were good. Other parts of it were a little rough.

Abby: Crystal, hey!

Crystal: Abby, how are you?

Abby: I haven’t had a chance to say hi to you yet. I’m just so happy to see you.

Tessa: Same.

Abby: I just heard what rey did, and I shouldn’t be surprised because, well, he was such a good guy. But I’m so happy that he had all the charges against you dropped. It was a terrible situation, and I can’t imagine what you’ve been through the past few years.

Crystal: It’s all behind me now. I’m focused on the future, and I haven’t felt this good in a really long time.

Abby: I’m so glad to hear that. And, please, if you need anything, anything at all, while you’re in town, let me know. I’m happy to help.

Crystal: That’s so sweet. I really appreciate it. Everyone’s been so nice.

Noah: I think we’re all just relieved to see you doing so well.

Crystal: Thank you. And I heard from tessa that you’re doing really well, too — a husband and a baby.

Abby: It’s true. I have never been happier.

Chance: Congratulations, mother of the bride.

Sharon: Oh, thanks, chance.

Chance: This is — it’s very beautiful. Must be proud.

Sharon: I’m overwhelmed with joy.

Chance: And yet I’ve seen you standing here by yourself for most of the night.

Sharon: Yeah.

Chance: Thinking about rey?

Sharon: Someone told me that he’s here with us, probably on the dance floor.

Chance: I’ll tell you, he’s out there, and he is tearing up that dance floor. I am sure of it. But you need to go celebrate yourself. You know, have some fun, enjoy it. You should be dancing, too.

Phyllis: Glad you’re happy. Keep that. I need to tell you something.

Jack: Okay, tell me. Tell me.

Phyllis: Don’t worry about it. I have it under control. Diane is here.

Jack: What?

Phyllis: Yeah. She’s here. That was my initial reaction. Don’t worry, I got it. I just didn’t want to rush her, ’cause I didn’t want to ruin tessa and mariah’s evening.

Jack: I cannot believe she — what am I saying? Of course I can believe it. It’s diane. What, she wants to let the whole world know that she’s alive?

Phyllis: I don’t think she’s gonna do that. She would’ve already done it by now. I think she just wants to watch kyle.

Jack: She better not make a scene here.

Phyllis: Oh, she’s not going to, trust me. I have it under control.

Summer: Congratulations!

Mariah: Summer! Do you really mean that?

Summer: I do. I believe that everyone deserves a chance at love and happiness, even you, mariah. Hey, tessa, congratulations.

Tessa: Oh, thank you, summer. Thank you for coming.

Mariah: Oh, no, I do–

[ Chuckles ] I don’t want to wrinkle my dress.

Summer: So I was just going to say that you two look terrific. Those dresses are perfect. So much nicer than what you usually wear.

Mariah: And there it is. There it is. You’ll never change.

[ Chuckles ]

Summer: I was — I was joking. I actually have changed a lot. Motherhood and marriage will do that to you. My perspective has shifted, and I’m really, really happy. I know you’ll experience the same thing when you start a family. It’s going to be awesome, and you deserve it.

Mariah: Mm-hmm. And?

Summer: And…nothing.

Mariah: There’s no little jab or clever little put-down.

Summer: No. I mean it. I wish you and tessa nothing but happiness.

Tessa: Just say “thank you, summer.”

Kyle: You can do it.

Mariah: Thank you, summer.

Kyle: [ Chuckles ] See? Was that so hard?

Mariah: Yes, it was excruciating.

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Kyle: Uh…excuse me. I need to go take care of something. What are you doing here?

Diane: I came to see you.

Kyle: No, first you show up at the house unannounced, and now you’re here. What are you up to? You love rich, delicious ice cream.

Diane: I’m not up to anything. I came here to watch you officiate the wedding. It was such a kind and generous thing to do.

Kyle: You know, I could’ve told you all about it after the fact. You didn’t need to show up here. And the ceremony’s been over for a while, so what are you still doing here?

Diane: [ Scoffs ] It’s not like I’m going to make a grand announcement or anything that I’ve returned.

Kyle: Okay, that’s not the point. I don’t want this event to suddenly become about you instead of the happy couple. And if someone sees you, that could happen. So I’d appreciate it if you left.

Diane: Okay, okay. But I’d just like to do one thing first before I go. Could I just say hello to summer?

Kyle: Now?

Diane: It’s been years.

Kyle: I think you can wait.

Diane: She’s your wife, my daughter-in-law. Please, kyle. It would mean so much to me.

Kevin: May I have your attention? It is now time for toasts. Please grab a drink and join me as we salute our favorite couple.

[ Whooping, cheering ] Today has been so great. The ceremony was 100% mariah and tessa. It was fun, colorful, full of love. It completely captured the essence of this couple that we all admire and adore.

[ Cheering ] I know that it has been a long road for the two of you to get here. There were twists, turns, bumps along the way. But I am so happy that you made it. Everyone here is, and you can feel it. Everyone in this room is out of their minds crazy about the two of you.

[ Cheering ] I mean, listen to that. Traditionally, there is not a lot of whooping and hollering at weddings. But your exuberance is so infectious. You make us all want to be joyful, happy, in love. We have all been rooting for you two for years.

[ Shouts of agreement ] So the theme of the day is “love conquers all.” And you two have conquered every obstacle that has come your way. Your happiness is our happiness. Your joy is our joy.

[ Sighs ] And your love is our love. To mariah and tessa!

[ Cheering ]

Mariah: Oh. Okay. [ Laughs ] Thank you. Kevin, thank you.

Tessa: We just wanted to say thank you all for coming today.

Mariah: Yeah, even summer.

[ Laughter ]

Tessa: We can’t tell you how much it means to us that you are all here to celebrate with us.

Mariah: I think the celebration has been a little tame…

Tessa: Mm.

Mariah: …Up until now. Don’t you think?

Tessa: Yeah, mm-hmm, mm-hmm. Well, we exchanged vows and rings.

Mariah: Yeah, we did the traditional first dance. And then we mingled politely.

Tessa: And then kevin gave his speech that made mariah weepy again.

Mariah: It did. It did do that, yes. That’s true.

[ Laughs ]

Tessa: So now it’s time for the real party to begin.

Mariah: Yeah. Hey, noah, hit it.

[ ’70s music plays ]

[ Cheering ] Okay, everybody, get your butts on the dance floor!

[ Cheering ]

Never look down you’re flying too high when you need the ground when you wave goodbye just forget about all the rest they’re much too afraid to try but you know you’re the very best livin’ a wild life wild life livin’ a wild life a wild life

Sharon: Okay, one fresh-squeezed orange juice for faith.

Faith: Thank you.

Sharon: And one mimosa for the absolutely beautiful bride.

Mariah: Oh, thank you. This is exactly what I need.

Sharon: Mm-hmm.

Faith: I know that everyone will be toasting you all night, so allow me to be the first.

Mariah: By all means. Go ahead.

Faith: You are the best sister that a girl could ever have. And please don’t tell summer that.

Mariah: Got it, I will put it in the vault.

Faith: You always have my back, and today, I have yours. To the bride.

Sharon: To the bride. Yeah! Cheers.

Sharon: Mmm.

Faith: Okay, now that that is out of the way, I just want to let you know that I am on top of this wedding. All you have to do is relax and enjoy your day.

Mariah: Where did we get this fantastic project manager?

[ Laughs ]

Faith: Last night, as I was falling asleep, I had a realization. This is what I was born to do — to make this day unforgettable for you. So if there’s anything that you need, let me know.

[ Laughs ]

Sharon: If you will excuse me, something has got my attention.

Faith: Anything I can help you with?

Sharon: No, no, I’m fine. Really, I got this.

Faith: She’s fine. As if.

Mariah: How do you really think she’s doing?

Faith: [ Sighs ] Pretty good, considering. She really needed a happy distraction.

Mariah: Well, I get a wedding, and she gets something to take her mind off of rey. It’s a win-win.

Faith: Okay, staying on schedule. Should I call kevin so he can come over and get ready with the rest of us? I mean, he is your man-of-honor.

Mariah: As seriously as kevin takes his responsibilities as my most trusted dude, I don’t think he wants to be here when we’re arguing over curling irons.

Faith: Yeah, I guess you’re right.

Mariah: Oh, wow. So if this is the fourth course of that incredible brunch that you made me this morning, I’m good.

[ Chuckles ]

Sharon: I think you’ll enjoy this even more.

Mariah: Oh, what the heck?

Sharon: Something old, something new.

Mariah: Wow. I guess this really is my wedding day.

[ Sighs ]

Tessa: Oh, my goodness. Crystal, I cannot remember the last time I stayed up all night talking.

Crystal: We had a lot of catching up to do.

[ Laughs ]

Tessa: Yes, we did, and I am so glad. I cannot wait to show you off to all my new friends and all the usual suspects. They’re not even gonna recognize you.

Crystal: We can do all that later. You’ll have way more important things on your mind. Everybody will be focused on my rock star sister and her stunning bride.

Tessa: Oh. I can’t wait to see mariah. We’ve managed to keep what we’re wearing a secret from each other so far, but I just — I really hope she likes it.

Crystal: I’d love to see it.

Tessa: Me too.

Crystal: Hmm?

Tessa: I don’t actually have the dress in my possession right now, but I will.

Crystal: When?

Tessa: Uh, yeah, it’s gonna be plenty of time.

Crystal: Oh. Okay.

Tessa: Uh…yeah, the designer’s gonna drop it off any minute.

Noah: Okay, seriously, give me your honest opinion and please do not be afraid to hurt my feelings.

Nick: I mean, artists — you’re so needy.

Noah: Dad —

Nick: What is it you have to hear?

Noah: I am a bottomless pit of need when it comes to praise, okay? I think it has something to do with the way I was raised. Maybe not enough attention when I was a kid or something.

Nick: Okay. What you did at the top of the tower — transcendent.

Noah: Okay, smart guy. Yeah.

Nick: Hey, you asked, so I’m telling you. I’m actually extremely proud of you. It’s awesome. I also know what an incredible thing it is you’re doing for your sister and the woman she’s planning to marry, because i know how you still feel about tessa.

Noah: [ Sighs ]

Jack: Hey, there. Nice threads, kyle.

Kyle: Ooh, that’s “reverend kyle” to you. You are looking at a freshly licensed and ordained minister.

Jack: Well, cufflinks — here.

Kyle: Want to help?

Jack: So what’s the first order of business?

Kyle: Well, first and probably last, I will be officiating mariah and tessa’s wedding later.

Jack: That is fantastic. Congratulations to all of you. I’m sure mariah is thrilled. She’s a good friend.

Kyle: Yeah, the best. I’m glad she talked me into this.

Jack: Look, for what it’s worth, I understand your initial decision to skip the wedding ’cause of all you’re dealing with with your mother.

Kyle: Hey, the secret to today is compartmentalization. I’m taking all of my conflicting emotions about my mother and her place in my life, and I am putting them in a little box until I finish my job officiating this wedding.

Jack: Great idea, mister.

Kyle: And it’s not just mariah and tessa having a big day. If it weren’t for me setting up their first date, they might not even be together.

Jack: Your modesty is astounding.

Kyle: It’s a good feeling.

Jack: I’ll bet it is.

Kyle: Oh, and I have some more good news. Summer convinced her people at marchetti they can survive some time without her.

Jack: Wait, summer is coming home?

Kyle: She’ll be touching down soon.

Jack: Oh, that is wonderful. I am so happy for you. I know how much you’ve missed her, dealing with all these complicated issues with your mother.

Kyle: Hey.

Jack: Not today, though.

Kyle: Today is about mariah and tessa.

Jack: Who knows? Maybe diane is already on her way back to los angeles.

Diane: Oh. Are you this attentive to all your guests?

Phyllis: I have a better question for you. What are you still doing here? I mean, I love watching a train wreck, but this is excruciating, even for me.

Diane: Well, I’m so sorry to be such a distraction. By all means, avert your eyes.

Phyllis: I mean, I know how the abbotts reacted to you being in town, but I got to think that the newmans want you dead and buried again, permanently this time.

Diane: I do still have a son in town.

Phyllis: Diane, if you’re waiting for him to forgive you, you’re be gonna waiting a really long time.

Diane: Well, I refuse to give up hope, and I’m aware that it will take time to prove that I’ve changed.

Phyllis: Try forever.

Diane: Alright, if that’s what it takes. I want to make amends. I want to be part of kyle’s life. I’ve changed. And jack is beginning to see that, too. I do believe I’m winning him over to my side.

Phyllis: [ Exhales sharply ] You stay the hell away from jack. After years on the battlefield

Sharon: Your something old to hold while you walk down the aisle. Not long after I found out that you were my daughter, I gave you a garnet necklace. And this bracelet is the companion piece to that. It belonged to cassie. But today, it’s yours to take with you as you’re walking into the next phase of your life.

Mariah: Oh, mom.

Faith: No crying or we have to re-do that incredible makeup.

Mariah: Got it.

Sharon: Here, let me.

Mariah: I’ve been thinking about cassie so much the last few days.

Sharon: Me too. It’s like she’s right here with us. You know, if there was one thing in this world that cassie loved, it was a wedding.

Faith: Yeah?

Sharon: [ Chuckles ] Mm-hmm.

Mariah: I will cherish this with all of my heart. Thank you so much.

Faith: Okay, moving on to something new. Inside you will find two toe rings, and those little numbers that are inscribed, that’s the latitude and the longitude of where you and tessa had your first date. One for each of you.

Sharon: That’s so great.

Mariah: So we can always find our way back to the beginning. Faith, I love it.

Sharon: Alright, something borrowed. But I get this one back.

Mariah: Of course.

Sharon: This handkerchief belonged to rey’s grandmother. And she carried it with her on her wedding day, and rey gave it to me on ours.

Mariah: Wow. It’s so beautiful. Like, the embroidery, it’s so intricate. I love it. You know, rey is the reason that crystal is here. That was his gift to us. He knew how much family meant to us, and that’s what he gave us. One more person to love and to witness our happiness.

[ Chuckles ]

Sharon: Okay, well, time for something blue.

Faith: Me again. This stone is kind of like you. Hear me out. It’s supposed to have all these healing and protective qualities, but I just like the way it feels in my hand. It calms me down when I start to get stressed out. I have carried it with me during some — let’s call them challenging times. When mom was sick, when I was in the hospital, even on my first date with moses.

Mariah: It’s beautiful.

Faith: I feel like it’s got some really good juju, you know? And maybe a little bit of magic.

Mariah: [ Sighs ] I never thought that I would be the girl that gets any of this, and, you know, look at me now. I’m somebody’s bride.

[ Laughs ]

Faith: No, not “somebody.” Tessa is the person that you were meant for, and she is meant for you.

Mariah: I am the luckiest girl in the world to have you both in my life.

[ Laughs ] Sharing this day with the both of you, it’s like a dream come true.

[ Chuckles ]

Noah: If you’re worried that I’m gonna stand up and object during the ceremony, don’t be. I have officially moved past my feelings for tessa.

Nick: Alright, I mean, you’re saying and doing all the right things, but deep down, you know, can you honestly say you’re completely over her?

Noah: Now that I’ve had some time and distance, I realize that the feelings I was having were more about my breakup back in london, and now I knew nothing was ever gonna happen with tessa, so it felt safe, if that makes sense.

Nick: Yeah, I get it. Look, you know, I’m sorry about what happened in london. But, son, love is rarely easy.

Noah: Well, damn, you couldn’t have told me that a couple years ago?

Nick: Well, that’s why when you have moments like this, you celebrate it, you know? When it’s found. And trust me, love is gonna happen for you, too.

Noah: Honestly, I am not looking for it. No, if it comes to me, that’s great, but for now, I am done feeling sorry for myself. Now, I came back home ’cause i felt like I needed to put an ocean between me and my ex, and it felt like I was sacrificing something in doing so, but, dad, I am happy. I am happy for the first time in a long time, so I’m just gonna sit back and enjoy my life.

Nick: Well, then you are a fully actualized, completely enlightened human being. My work is done here.

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

Nick: Now it’s off to my other children.

Noah: Yeah.

Nick: Seriously, though, I’m proud of you.

Noah: Finally. Finally! First time today, I didn’t have to beg someone for validation.

Nick: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Noah: So now that we have fully explored all of my heartache and scars…

Nick: Here we go.

Noah: This can’t be easy for you either, walking cassie’s twin down the aisle.

Nick: Um…[ Chuckles ] Honestly, there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about cassie. You know, what could’ve been.

[ Sighs ] What should’ve been. This wedding has brought up all those emotions.

Noah: Feeling all the feels?

Nick: Yeah. I’m trying to focus on the good ones, you know? ‘Cause I get to walk cassie’s sister down the aisle, and i know in my heart that she’s looking down and she’s very, very happy that her sister gets this incredible day.

Diane: Oh, my, that was extreme, even for you.

Phyllis: You want to win jack to your side? Nothing about you has changed. You’re still playing your games. You’re trying to worm yourself in to people’s lives, aren’t you?

Diane: No, no, no. It was the mention of jack that set you off, which makes me wonder about the state of your relationship. You know, at first, I thought you two were a couple again. But now I think I must’ve been mistaken, because after all the hurt and betrayal and trauma, i just can’t imagine there’s anything romantic left between the two of you.

Phyllis: I can’t imagine that you would think that you had a shot in hell with jack.

Diane: You neither confirmed nor denied.

Phyllis: What is your plan? What do you think you’re gonna obtain? Seriously, I shouldn’t be in shock because you faked your own death for so long. This should not surprise me at all.

Jack: Hello, ladies. Is there a problem? Entresto is the number one heart failure brand

Diane: It seems my mere presence is the problem.

Jack: I thought you decided to return to los angeles when you heard kyle was headed back to milan.

Diane: Yes, but his plans have changed, so I changed mine, just in case.

Jack: Don’t read too much into that decision. Kyle’s reason for delaying his trip has nothing to do with you. He has a commitment here in town.

Diane: Well, I’m not assuming anything. He has been in touch with me. He’s not shutting me out.

Jack: Not shutting you out is not the same as an open invitation to insinuate yourself into his life. Give him time and space to deal with all of that. It’s the least he deserves.

Phyllis: If we want to talk about what people deserve —

Jack: Diane, don’t let us keep you.

Diane: [ Scoffs ]

Crystal: I can’t believe my sister is now a famous singer-songwriter who gets her clothes straight from the designer.

Tessa: Oh, well, maybe famous-ish.

Crystal: Where we came from, nobody winds up famous. Infamous, maybe.

Tessa: I did get really lucky, didn’t I?

Crystal: And you’ve got talent. Went from busking for change to going on tour — I mean, your first album just dropped. I’m so proud of you, tessa. You did it. You made your dreams come true, and now you’re like this guitar-playing, morphing-butterfly goddess.

Tessa: Oh. I love you so much.

Crystal: Right back at you, sis.

Tessa: Oh.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Crystal: Oh, is that about your wedding dress?

Tessa: No, but it’s from mariah. She told me to look inside the weird little box behind the rattan chair.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Oh.

[ Gasps ] Aww. It’s full of hearts.

[ Laughs ]

Crystal: What does it say? Or is it too private, just between the brides?

Tessa: No, no, no. Okay. “You are the cheese to my macaroni.”

[ Laughs ] “You’re the sugar to my tea.” “You’re the wishes on my birthday cake.” “You’re the jelly to my doughnut.” And “you are the peas to my carrots.”

Crystal: [ Laughs ] You’re a couple of super-secret cheesy goofballs.

[ Both laugh ] But don’t worry, your secret’s safe with me.

Faith: Where’s my list? I need to make sure we’re still on schedule.

Sharon: You are doing such a great job.

Mariah: You know, between this and the killer engagement party that you threw me, I think that you could set up shop as an event planner.

Faith: You mean you think i could earn money from this?

Mariah: Yeah, a fortune.

Sharon: I’d pay you in hugs and kisses.

Faith: [ Chuckles ] Thanks, mom.

Sharon: [ Laughs ]

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Mariah: Oh.

Sharon: Everything okay?

Mariah: Yeah. Tessa says to go check the front pocket of my overnight bag. Okay. “You are the strings to my guitar. My always love.”

[ Chuckles ]

Who’s on it with jardiance?

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Crystal: We didn’t grow up with too much love around us, so this is good for my heart, seeing that it’s possible. Heck, maybe there’s someone out there for me.

Tessa: Yeah, of course there is. Mariah isn’t just my love. She’s my life. I don’t know where I would be without her. She refuses to let me self-destruct and she is willing to do everything for me. She would put anything on the line for me.

Crystal: Sign me up, girl. But first, let’s get you ready to marry that extraordinary woman.

Abby: The best cup of coffee in town.

Allie: Wow, this is cool.

Abby: Noah, hi.

Noah: Abby, it’s good to see you.

Abby: This is my nephew noah.

Allie: Nice to meet you.

Noah: You too.

Abby: Noah, this is allie, jack’s granddaughter. She’s the newest member of the abbott family — or new to us.

Noah: Well, abby should have explained I’m from the dark side of her family. The — the newmans?

Abby: Allie’s still learning who’s who here in genoa city.

Noah: Okay, so she didn’t warn you about us. Well, we newmans are genetically inclined to making awkward jokes. You should see my father. Anyway, you know, there’s actually an app now for you abbotts that warns you whenever a newman’s within 500 feet, so might want to look into that. Uh…

Allie: I’m sorry?

Noah: I, um — abby, do your job, come on.

Abby: Well, I am so sorry that I can’t help you with your sad sense of humor. What my nephew is trying to say and failing miserably at is that there is a history between the families. It’s been shakespearean at times.

Allie: Got it.

Noah: Yeah, that about covers it.

Abby: But noah is a visual artist. He communicates better with pictures, not his words.

Noah: Yeah, I am an acquired taste.

Allie: [ Chuckles ]

Chance: Hey. I’m sorry I’m cutting it close. I had a lot of work to do at the office. Hey, man. How you doing?

Noah: Good to see you.

Abby: Chance, I want you to meet allie. Allie, this is chance, my husband.

Allie: Hello.

Chance: Of course. Welcome to the family.

Allie: Thanks.

Abby: We need to drop allie off at the abbott house on our way home.

Chance: Okay.

Noah: I can take her. Door-to-door service, joke-free environment.

Allie: Oh, I’ll walk, but thank you.

Noah: Ouch.

Allie: [ Chuckles ] No, it’s — it’s not you. I want to get to know genoa city, soak it in a little bit.

Noah: Ah. Well, I will resist the urge to make a joke.

Abby: Bye.

Allie: I’ll see you guys.

Abby: Hi.

Chance: Hi.

[ Knock on door ]

Kyle: What are you doing here?

For your most brilliant smile,

crest has you covered.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Diane: I just came by to check on you.

Kyle: Why?

Diane: Well, since your plans to return to milan fell through, I was worried that maybe you were sick or something.

Kyle: You wanted to know if i stayed in town because of you. The answer is no.

Diane: Well, you certainly look handsome. I hope whatever’s keeping you here is something good.

Kyle: I’m going to my best friend’s wedding. I’m officiating.

Diane: [ Exhales sharply ] My son the minister.

Kyle: The online variety.

Diane: Well, I just love weddings. You’re going to have a wonderful time. You know, this is what I wanted for you — the life I dreamed you’d live once I stepped out of it. Friends, family, a community. I couldn’t be prouder.

Kyle: Well, I’m running late.

Diane: Oh, don’t let me keep you.

Phyllis: What is she up to? We need to find out.

Jack: I appreciate and understand your instinct. She is never going to be forthcoming.

Phyllis: Well, of course not. She’s not gonna admit anything. I have a very, very bad feeling, jack. We can’t let our guard down.

Jack: Phyllis, I know what this is really about.

Phyllis: You do?

Jack: Yes, because I know you, red. This is about what you think this is going to do to summer.

Phyllis: Yeah, yeah, it is about that.

Jack: I assume you’ve heard the latest there.

Phyllis: Yes, I heard that she — she’ll be at the wedding. I’m really excited.

Jack: Yeah, it’s great news. So let’s stop spending our energy worrying about what diane is going to do. Ms. Summers, would you do me the honor of accompanying me to what promises to be the greatest wedding of the year?

Phyllis: There is nothing i would like more than to accompany you to this wedding, mr. Abbott.

Tessa: And the pice de résistance.

Crystal: [ Gasps ] Wow. Oh. I look so badass.

[ Chuckles ]

Tessa: You were born in the wrong decade.

Crystal: This is too wild, right? Being here in genoa city, being able to go to your wedding.

Tessa: I know, right? Did I tell you that there were two separate proposals?

Crystal: [ Chuckles ]

Tessa: I proposed to her and then she proposed to me.

Crystal: Why am I not surprised?

Tessa: Well, I was so blissed out when she said yes, and then we started making plans and her family was so supportive and thrilled for us. I couldn’t help but think what it would be like at our wedding alone, with no parents and you — you couldn’t risk it.

Crystal: Rey rosales will always have a special place in our hearts.

Tessa: Forever and always, because having you here is just so incredible.

Crystal: I’m so happy to be here.

Tessa: [ Inhales sharply ]

Crystal: Okay, no crying. You’ll mess up your makeup, and you look so super-cool.

Tessa: [ Exhales sharply ] Okay, I’m fine. I’m fine.

Crystal: Don’t we need to leave?

Tessa: Uh, oh, oh, yes. Yes, we do, right this very minute. Um…okay, I still don’t have the dress, and I don’t want to freak out on the happiest day of my life, but I’m pretty close to freaking out.

[ Knock on door ] Okay, please, please, please, please, please.

[ Gasps ]

Kevin: Ta-da!

Tessa: Oh, thank you, thank you.

Chloe: What? You weren’t worried, were you?

Tessa: [ Exhales sharply ]

Nick: What do you think of the threads? Papa’s a real cool cat. Can you dig?

Faith: [ Sighs ] You’re such a dork, dad.

Nick: More like dy-no-mite. Ready to dance all night. Give me five. Too slow. Too slow. What are you looking at? You giving me the hairy eyeball?

Moses: What?

Faith: Dad, if you’re gonna keep using ancient phrases, hand out a glossary.

Nick: Still haven’t gotten the word from the kid. Moses. What do you think?

Moses: “Sound as a pound.”

Nick: I love it.

Sharon: And that’s good?

Moses: According to this ’70s phrases website I just checked out.

Sharon: Mm. And what do you think about the mother of the bride?

Nick: Super groovy.

Faith: Ugh, never gonna run out of ’70s talk. What’s the ’70s word for gorgeous?

Moses: You look so beautiful. I can’t wait to see how you’re gonna top this for prom.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Faith: Oh, my god, the schedule. Hey, listen up, that was the two-minute warning before we have to get out of here.

Sharon: Oh, there she is.

Nick: Oh, yeah.

Sharon: Yay! Do you have everything you need?

Mariah: I think so. I have the love of my family and I have someone to love me for the rest of my life, so I think I’m good.

Faith: Breathe in. Good?

Mariah: Mm.

[ Exhales ] Out of this world.

Faith: Then let’s do this!

Nick: Let’s go!

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Nick: You look beautiful. Let’s get you hitched.

Mariah: Thank you. Like pulsing, electric shocks,

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Devon: Man.

Amanda: Well, this place looks —

Devon: Outta sight!

[ Laughter ]

Nate: What it is, my brother.

Devon: How you doing?

Amanda: Man, I am really digging this ’70s vibe.

Devon: Yeah, noah really knew what he was doing.

Elena: Yeah, someone understood the assignment. Look at this place.

Nate: Mm.

Devon: I think every wedding should be a theme.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

Devon: Look who it is.

Nate: Oh!

Devon: Hey, now, alright. Ready to dance, I see.

[ Laughter ]

Elena: Faith, I love your dress.

Faith: Thank you.

Devon: You guys are looking great. We’ll see you on the dance floor.

Moses: Yeah. Have fun, guys.

Devon: You too.

Faith: [ Sighs ] I hope my brides are okay.

Moses: Oh, they’re fine. And remember, if there’s anything that goes wrong, you have me as back-up.

Faith: You’re the best.

Sharon: Our very talented son put all of this together. We have a lot to be proud of today.

Nick: Mm-hmm.

Abby: I cannot believe that my nephew put all this together out of nothing.

Sharon: He did a fantastic job.

Kevin: Maybe we can get him to leave it up for a few days. This seems like an amazing place to have some after-school play-dates.

Abby: Oh, yes, I love that idea. I think mariah and tessa would, too.

Kevin: They are an amazing couple.

Abby: Yeah.

Kevin: And that is one proud dad right there.

Sharon: [ Chuckles ]

Abby: He’s the best.

Sharon: Oh, um…excuse me for a moment. Crystal. It’s sharon.

Crystal: Oh, my god, it’s so great to see you again.

Sharon: You too.

Crystal: I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I said I wouldn’t do this.

Sharon: No, that’s okay.

Crystal: It isn’T. You did so much for me when i was mixed up in that nightmare with zack, and I know the reason that I’m here is because of your husband, rey, and I’m so sorry for your loss.

Sharon: Thank you. Mariah said that this is rey’s wedding gift — removing the obstacles so that you could be here to enjoy this amazing occasion.

Crystal: I’m sorry to bring him up on such a happy day.

Sharon: No, no need to apologize. Rey is the reason that we can be happy after so much heartache. I’m just so glad that tessa’s able to have some family with her today, and that’s what I’m gonna focus on.

Kyle: Hi, sharon. I heard about rey. I’m so sorry for your loss.

Sharon: Thank you. Thanks for saying that, kyle. And thanks for changing your plans so that you could be here for mariah and do this for her. I know that it means a lot to her.

Kyle: Me too. And sorry for interrupting.

Sharon: No, not at all. This is crystal, tessa’s sister.

Kyle: Ah, it’s so good to meet you. Tessa’s a good friend of mine. I’m kyle.

[ Clears throat ]

Reverend kyle.

Crystal: Are you the minister?

Kyle: I was just ordained online, but don’t let it scare you that this is my first time. Tessa and mariah are in very caring and capable hands. And in case you don’t know, I’m the reason they got together in the first place, but I’ll save the details for the toast.

Jack: Hey, there. Are we late?

Phyllis: Congratulations, sharon.

Sharon: Oh, thank you, phyllis.

Jack: Congratulations.

Sharon: Thank you.

Kyle: Not at all. You’re right on time.

Phyllis: Where are the brides? Are they here?

Kyle: Yes, but they haven’t seen each other, and I’m happy to report I have never seen two people more ready to get married. Looking to get back in your type 2 diabetes zone?

Phyllis: So where’s summer?

Kyle: Her flight was delayed, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she gets here soon. But if you’ll excuse me, I need to make sure that I’m standing in the right place to perform my officiating duties. So who’s running this show?

Faith: That would be me.

Kyle: Impressive.

Faith: Everyone, please take a seat so we can celebrate our super-funky couple and lift them up with the power of our love. Kyle.

[ Cheers and applause ]

Crystal: Thank you.

[ Processional music plays ]

[ Indistinct speaking ]

Tessa: You look so beautiful.

Mariah: I love you.

Y&R Update Tuesday, May 17 2022

Young & The Restless Update

Y&R logo

Recap written by Christine

At Top of the Tower, Kyle stated that weddings were usually solemn occasions; they had to be when two people were declaring their love in front of everyone. While Mariah and Tessa were serious about their love, Kyle promised the guests that this wedding would be the funkiest grooviest most bad-ass wedding the guests ever attended. Everyone clapped and cheered. Tessa and Mariah wrote their own vows. Tessa had given up on love, but Mariah broke down all her walls and embraced every side of her. Their connection filled Mariah’s soul and inspired her. Every song she wrote was about Mariah and the love they shared. “Everything that I’ve learned about love is because of you.” Tessa couldn’t wait for their future. She promised to be a partner, best friend, champion and shoulder to lean on, now and always. Tessa and Mariah were both in tears. Diane stood in the shadows and watched Kyle officiate the ceremony. The brides exchanged rings, and Kyle announced them officially married. Mariah and Tessa stared into each other’s eyes, then they shared their first kiss as wives. Everyone applauded.

Mariah had wanted this for so long, but she couldn’t believe she was here. Growing up, wishes like this didn’t come true for Mariah. Two miracles happened for Mariah – she met her mom and learned to love, so she was ready when Tessa came along. At the time, Mariah just thought she’d met an amazing person who’d become her friend. Jack looked at Phyllis. Mariah recalled their first date – the one Kyle set up. When Tessa held Mariah’s hand, it felt right. Mariah was grateful for Tessa. She thought Tessa was magic, and everything she touched turned to gold. Mariah said they were going to start their own family, and that would be golden too. Mariah took Tessa’s hand and promised to be with her, through good times and bad. “I love you and I am yours. Today, tomorrow and forever.”

Allie was at the Abbott house when Summer came in. The role of Summer is now being played by Allison Lanier. Summer introduced herself to Allie, who helped her with her bags. Summer laughed about her inability to pack light for this trip and said she was her mother’s daughter. Allie mentioned that Phyllis was one of the big reasons she was here. Phyllis supported Allie and Jack spending time together. Summer said Allie must’ve passed the test, because Phyllis was super-protective of Jack and of everyone she loved. Allie saw that side of Phyllis when she found out Kyle’s mom was alive. Summer said this whole thing had been hard on Kyle. Summer said her flight was delayed, so she was late, but they’d better get dressed and get to the wedding. Allie wasn’t planning to go.

Summer said that she was sure Allie was invited. Allie said Jack asked her to attend, but she wasn’t comfortable going. She’d never even met the happy couple. Summer said that they were the more-the-merrier types, and if Mariah wanted Summer there, she’d surely welcome Allie. Summer said as big of a pain as Mariah was, she was Kyle’s best friend, and Tessa was pretty cool. Allie was a big fan of Tessa’s music. Summer was sure they’d missed the boring parts of the wedding, and by the time they got there, the party would be started. Allie wasn’t a party person. Summer teased that Allie shouldn’t stay in this probably haunted house by herself. Allie agreed to go, but she didn’t have any clothes, but Summer had plenty of stuff in her suitcase.

Faith announced Mariah and Tessa on the dance floor, and they shared their first dance as a married couple. They marveled that they did it. As they watched, Nick told Sharon he knew she was thinking Rey would’ve loved this. That was exactly what she was thinking. She knew he would’ve declared this the most beautiful wedding he’d ever seen since theirs. Nick said Rey and Cassie were here. Kevin and Chloe talked. He told her there was a time he thought Mariah and Tessa wouldn’t make it, but they taught him that the power of love could conquer all. Chloe lightly smacked Kevin and his and her love should’ve taught him that. Everything they’d been through should’ve proved that if two people were meant to be, they were meant to be, she said. He said he and Chloe were written in the stars, and there was never any doubting their love. Chloe said a few years ago, this wedding wouldn’t have happened because it wasn’t legal. She felt that two people should be able to marry whoever they wanted – that was the true power of love. He agreed, then he lead her out to the dance floor. Tessa and Mariah were deliriously happy. They kissed. Many of the guests were on the dance floor. Tessa needed a break. Mariah protested because this was a dance competition, and she wanted them to get the grand prize. Tessa said she already had the grand prize. Amanda, Abby and Chance came up to congratulate the couple. Mariah wanted to dance with all of them before the night was over.

Noah and Crystal caught up, and she accepted his offer to dance. Summer and Allie walked in, and Kyle rushed to his wife and hugged her. Summer told Kyle they had a lot to talk about. Kyle apologized because he didn’t notice Allie at first. She told him he didn’t need to apologize for being happy to see his wife. Jack and Phyllis went over to hug Summer. Jack told Allie she looked beautiful. He accurately guessed that Summer dragged Allie here, and alluded to Summer inheriting her persuasiveness from Phyllis. Allie was uncomfortable in the crowd, but she consented when Jack offered to show her around. Summer told Allie she was doing great. Phyllis saw that Summer and Kyle wanted time alone, so she walked off. Diane watched Summer and Kyle kiss.

Amanda was curious when she learned Mariah and Tessa were going on a honeymoon to a confidential locale. Tessa and Amanda went off to chat. Devon was so happy for Mariah. She was happy he was here to celebrate. He said they’d been through friendship, business, dating, friendship again, and she’d helped bring an amazing new life into the world. He said she was glowing today. She said marriage was turning her into a sap. She said she wouldn’t be here or with Tessa without Devon. She started crying, and they hugged, while Tessa and Amanda smiled at them.

Abby loved Allie’s dress. Allie said Summer helped her. Abby adopted a strained smile. Jack wanted Allie to meet Chance, but Chance said they met briefly earlier. He welcomed her to Genoa City. Jack excused himself and Allie, so they could greet the happy couple. Allie met Mariah and Tessa, and they welcomed her warmly. Allie said Summer told her they’d react this way. Mariah said Summer was a lot to take, but she and Kyle were perfect together.

Amanda ended up with Phyllis. She thought it was significant that Jack invited Phyllis to the wedding. Amanda noted that Phyllis said she and Jack were just friends, but people didn’t just attend weddings together as buddies. Phyllis said Jack just invited her because Summer would be here, but Amanda didn’t buy it.

Summer reunited with Faith and Nick. Faith was brimming with questions about Milan, but Nick guided her away so Kyle and Summer could talk. Kyle was glad Summer was here. He needed her, and he wanted to talk in person, not just in video chat. Diane grew more bold, and she entered the room and looked around. She tensed up when she saw Phyllis glaring at her. Phyllis was going to confront Diane when Jack walked up and expressed relief to get one night where he didn’t have to think about Diane. Diane resumed hiding, and Phyllis distracted Jack by pulling him out to the dance floor.

Jack was enjoying himself on the dance floor, and that made Phyllis happy because she had something to tell him. She told him not to worry, because she had it under control, but Diane was here. Jack was angry, but not surprised. Phyllis said her first instinct was to rush Diane, but she didn’t want to ruin Mariah and Tessa’s night. Phyllis thought Diane just wanted to watch Kyle. Jack said she’d better not make a scene. Phyllis said she wouldn’t let that happen.

Noah and Crystal were talking about his life in London when Abby came up to welcome Crystal back and speak highly of Rey for what he’d done. Abby couldn’t imagine what Crystal had been through. Crystal had put it all behind her. Abby said to let her know if she needed anything. Crystal heard from Tessa that Abby was doing well and had a husband and baby. Abby had never been happier.

Chance approached Sharon and noted that she’d been by herself most of the night. He correctly concluded that she was thinking about Rey. She said someone told her Rey was here tonight, probably on the dance floor. Chance was sure that was true. He encouraged Sharon to get out there and have some joy too.

Summer congratulated Mariah and Tessa. Mariah was skeptical of the sentiment. Summer thought everyone deserved a chance at love and happiness, even Mariah. Summer hugged Tessa, but she got rebuffed when she went to hug Mariah. Summer thought the dresses were perfect, so much nicer than what Mariah usually wore. Mariah said Summer hadn’t changed. Summer was just joking. Motherhood and marriage changed Summer a lot, and she knew that Mariah and Tessa would have that experience too. Summer thought it would be awesome for them, and they deserved it. Mariah was waiting for the jab, but Summer sincerely wished them nothing but happiness. Tessa and Kyle encouraged Mariah to say thanks, and she grudgingly did. Kyle spotted his mother and excused himself to confront her.

Kyle noted that Diane had showed up at the house unannounced and now she was here. He wanted to know what she was doing. She said she wanted to watch him officiate. He wasn’t happy she came at all, but he stated that the wedding had been over for awhile, and she was still here. She wasn’t planning to make a grand announcement or anything. He didn’t care. He didn’t want the event to become about her, so he wanted her to leave. She asked if she could say hi to Summer before she left. He thought that could wait. She said that Summer was his wife and her daughter in law so it would mean a lot to her. Before anything could happen, Kevin took center stage.

Kevin gave his man of honor speech. He said it had been a long road full of twists and turn, but he was so happy Tessa and Mariah made it. He told them that everyone in the room was crazy about them, and they’d all been rooting for this couple for years. “Your happiness is our happiness. Your joy is our joy and your love is our love.” Everyone raised a glass. Tessa and Mariah thanked everyone for coming. “Even Summer,” Mariah said. Tessa teased Mariah about being weepy. They said the party had been a little tame, but now it was time for the real party to begin. Everyone got back on the dance floor.

Young & The Restless Update

Recap written by Christine

It was the morning of Mariah’s wedding. At the cottage, and Sharon served Faith orange juice and Mariah a mimosa. Faith toasted to the best sister a girl could ever have, with an aside not to mention that to Summer. Mariah promised to put that in the vault. Faith said Mariah always had her back, and today, Faith had Mariah’s. Faith said she was on top of the wedding, so all Mariah had to do was relax and enjoy her day. Sharon went upstairs to do something, and her daughters talked. Mariah asked how Sharon was really doing. Faith thought she was doing pretty well, considering. Mariah was glad Sharon had the wedding to focus on. Faith asked if she should call Kevin, so he could get ready with them – he was Mariah’s man of honor. Mariah didn’t think Kevin would want to be there while they were arguing over curling irons. Sharon returned with a silver platter that had an embroidered handkerchief and some jewelry on it. Something old and something new. Mariah got choked up, as it sank in that it really was their wedding day.

Not long after Sharon found out Mariah was her daughter, she gave her a garnet necklace. The bracelet on the platter was a companion piece that used to belong to Cassie. It was something old. Mariah and Sharon had been thinking about Cassie so much in the last few days. Sharon said Cassie loved a wedding. The new item was a set of toe rings inscribed with the latitude and longitude of Mariah and Tessa’s first date. There was one ring for each of them. “So we can always find our way back to the beginning,” Mariah said. She loved the gift, which was from Faith. The borrowed item was a handkerchief that Rey’s grandmother carried on her wedding day. Rey gave it to Sharon on their wedding day, and she was loaning it to Mariah. Mariah said Rey was the reason Crystal was here – he knew how much family meant, and he gave them one more person to love and to witness their happiness. The blue gift was also from Faith. It was a blue stone that reminded Faith of Mariah. It was supposed to have calming properties. Faith had carried it with her when Sharon was sick, when Faith was in the hospital, and on her first date with Moses. Mariah never thought she’d get any of this, and now she was someone’s bride. Faith said Tessa was meant for Mariah. Mariah felt like the luckiest person in the world to have Faith and Sharon in her life. They had a group hug.

Tessa and Crystal were at the apartment. They’d stayed up all night catching up. Tessa couldn’t wait to show Crystal off to all her new friends. Crystal said they could do that later – today, everyone would be focused on her rock star sister and her stunning bride. Tessa couldn’t wait to see Mariah. They didn’t know what each other were wearing today. Crystal couldn’t believe her sister was a famous singer-songwriter. Tessa didn’t think she was really famous. Crystal said people from their hometown didn’t get famous – infamous, maybe. Tessa said she got lucky, but Crystal said it was talent. She was proud of Tessa for making her dreams come true, and now she was a guitar-playing morphing butterfly goddess. They hugged. Mariah texted Tessa about a hidden surprise. It was a box of paper hearts with a bunch of silly but loving sentiments, like “You’re the jelly to my donuts.” They made Tessa and Crystal smile, and Crystal call the couple cheesy goofballs.

Back at the cottage, Faith made sure that they were on schedule. Mariah said that Faith could make a fortune as an event planner. Tessa texted Mariah to check the pocket of her overnight bag. There was a note that said “You are the strings to my guitar. My always love.”

Tessa got a reply text that sad “We’ve always made beautiful music together.” They texted loving messages back and forth. Tessa mentioned her wedding dress hadn’t been delivered and asked what if she showed up in her robe. Mariah dared her to do it. It did Crystal’s heart good to see this love, since she and Tessa didn’t grow up in a loving environment. It made Crystal think someone could be out there for her. Tessa said of course there was. Tessa said Mariah wasn’t just her love, she was Tessa’s life. Tessa knew Mariah would do anything for her.

Crystal got dressed for the wedding. Tessa shared that there had been two marriage proposals. She got choked up, because she’d thought about what it would be like to be at the wedding with no parents and Crystal not being there. Crystal said Rey would always have a special place in their hearts. They hugged. It was time to go, and Tessa’s dress wasn’t there, and she was trying not to freak out. At that moment, Kevin and Chloe showed up with the dress.

Nick and Noah were at Crimson Lights. Noah wanted Nick’s opinion on the way he decorated the Top of the Tower. Nick teased Noah about artists being needy for praise. Noah joked that he didn’t have enough attention as a kid. Nick was extremely proud of Noah’s work. He also thought it was incredible that Noah did this for Mariah and Tessa, given how he felt about Tessa. Noah said he didn’t have feelings for Tessa. He’d come to realize that what he thought he felt for Tessa was really about his breakup back in London. He’d projected those feelings onto Tessa, because he knew nothing would happen between him and her. Nick understood, and he was sorry about London, but love was rarely easy. Nick thought Noah would find love. Noah wasn’t looking for love, but if he found it, that was great. He was happy for the first time in a long time, and he was just going to enjoy his life. Nick was proud of Noah.

Noah assumed it wasn’t easy for Nick to walk Cassie’s twin down the aisle. Nick thought about Cassie and what should’ve been every day. The wedding had brought up all those emotions, and he was trying to focus on the good ones – he got to walk Cassie’s sister down the aisle, and he knew Cassie would be watching over them, happy for Mariah.

Noah was alone when Abby and Allie arrived. Abby introduced her nephew, Noah, to the newest member of the Abbott family. Noah told Allie that he was from the dark side of Abby’s family – the Newmans. Allie looked confused, and Noah said the Newmans were genetically inclined to make awkward jokes. He told Allie that there was an app that warned the Abbotts when a Newman was nearby. Allie didn’t know what to say. Abby explained that Noah was trying to say there was a Shakespearean history between the Abbotts and Newmans. Noah said he was an acquired taste. Chance came in and met Allie. Abby told Chance they needed to give Allie a ride to the Abbott house. Noah offered to do it, but Allie said she’d rather walk. Noah was stung, but Allie said it wasn’t him – she just wanted to explore Genoa City. Allie left.

Nick went to the cottage, where Faith and Moses were dressed in their vintage best for the 70s glam wedding. Nick peppered his dialogue with 70s slang, and Faith called him a dork. She had no idea what those words meant, and she said they’d need a glossary. Moses looked up 70s lingo online, so he could communicate with Nick. Sharon came downstairs, and Nick told her she looked groovy. Faith thought Moses was gorgeous, and he told her she looked beautiful. He couldn’t wait to see how she’d top this for prom. Mariah came downstairs, and Sharon asked if she had everything she needed. She said she had the love of her family and someone to love her the rest of her life. As they all left, Nick kissed Mariah on the cheek.

At the Abbott house, Jack helped Kyle with his cuff links. Kyle was going to officiate the wedding, and he was glad Mariah talked him into it. Jack understood Kyle’s initial decision to skip the wedding, due to the situation with his mother. Kyle said he was putting all that aside until he’d finished his officiating duties. Kyle felt that this was his big day too, since he was the one who set up Mariah and Tessa’s big date. He was also excited because Summer was flying in today. Jack knew how much Kyle missed Summer, given all these complicated issues with Diane. Kyle hinted not to mention his mom, because today was about Mariah and Tessa. Jack suggested Diane might be on her way back to LA.

Diane came downstairs at the hotel, and Phyllis was annoyed she was still in town. Diane said her son was in town. Phyllis and Diane debated whether Diane should try and get Kyle’s forgiveness. Diane was willing to wait forever, if that is what it took. She said she changed, and Jack was beginning to see it too. Phyllis ordered Diane to stay the hell away from Jack.

Diane thought that was extreme. Phyllis accused Diane of being up to her old tricks. Diane speculated about the state of Jack and Phyllis’s relationship. At first, Diane thought they were a couple, but after all the hurt, betrayal and trauma, Diane couldn’t imagine there was anything romantic between Jack and Phyllis. Phyllis couldn’t imagine Diane thought she had a chance in hell with Jack. Phyllis wondered what Diane’s goal was. Phyllis said she shouldn’t be surprised by anything Diane did, given that she faked her own death. Jack walked up and asked if there was a problem. Diane guessed her whole presence was a problem. Jack thought Diane was leaving since Kyle was going back to Milan. Diane changed her plans because Kyle changed his. Jack said that Kyle’s change of plans had nothing to do with Diane. Diane wasn’t assuming anything – Kyle had been in touch; he wasn’t shutting her out. Jack said that wasn’t an invitation to insinuate herself into Kyle’s life – he deserved space. Phyllis was about to add her opinion, but Jack dismissed Diane, and she left.

Phyllis had a really bad feeling about what Diane was up to. Jack assumed Phyllis was concerned about how Diane’s return would affect Summer. He noted that Summer was coming. Phyllis knew. He thought they should forget about what Diane was going to do. He invited Phyllis to be his guest at what promised to be the greatest wedding of the year, and she said there was nothing she’d like more.

Kyle checked his hair before getting ready to leave the house. Diane showed up. He was cool to her and didn’t let her inside. She said she was worried he was sick, since he didn’t go back to Milan. He assumed she wanted to know if he stayed behind because of her, and the answer was no. she thought he looked handsome. He said he was officiating his best friend’s wedding. She loved weddings. This is the life she dreamed he’d live once she stepped out of it – friends, family, a community. He said he was running late, and he walked out of the house and left without saying goodbye.

Devon and Amanda met Nate and Elena at Top of the Tower. Nate and Devon exchanged 70s slang and enjoyed Noah’s design. The place was decorated like a lounge, with burnt orange sectionals instead of more traditional chairs.

Kevin and Abby chatted with Nick and Sharon, while across the room, Chance showed Chloe pictures of Dom. Kevin said that was one proud dad. Abby said he was the best.

Sharon excused herself and went to hug Crystal. Crystal began to cry. Crystal was grateful Sharon helped her when she was mixed up in that nightmare with Zack. Crystal knew she was here today because of Rey, and she was sorry for Sharon’s loss. She was sorry to bring him up on such a happy day. Sharon said there was no need to apologize – Rey was the reason they could be happy after so much heartache. Sharon was glad Tessa had family here today. Kyle came up and gave his condolences to Sharon. She thanked him and said she was glad he was able to officiate the wedding. She introduced him to Crystal. Kyle introduced himself as Reverend Kyle, the reason Tessa and Mariah got together.

Jack and Phyllis showed up at the wedding. Kyle said Summer’s flight was delayed, but he hoped be there soon. Faith directed everyone to take a seat. Noah dimmed the lights. Mariah and Tessa entered at the same time, from opposite sides of the room. Sharon and Nick walked the brides to the center of the room and took their seats. Tess and Mariah had matching bouquets. They held hands and walked to the stage together.

Nikki: What are you doing here? Lying in wait, hoping that Victoria will come by again?

Ashland: I gather she told you we spoke earlier about my donation to New Hope. She didn’t object, which I found gratifying.

Nikki: I’m sure what you find even more gratifying is how much it still upsets her to see you. Does that feed your voracious ego?

Ashland: Hurting Victoria is the last thing I want. Every move I am making right now is about easing her pain.

Nikki: We learned a long time ago to pay attention to what you do, not what you say, since all you do is lie from morning till night.

Ashland: Nikki —

Nikki: You continue to claim that you love my daughter. If that’s true, prove it by leaving her alone.


Nikki: I was just sharing with Ashland what I think about him and how selfish he is for continuing to inflict his presence on you.

Ashland: I’m sorry. I should’ve recognized that a mother as protective as you are would not want to hear an apology from me, no matter how heartfelt.

Nikki: Oh, please.

Victoria: Mom, it’s not worth your time to get into it with him. Doesn’t matter where he goes or what he does, it’s his business. I honestly don’t care.

Nikki: I don’t share my daughter’s indifference. Victor and I didn’t go after you before because it was more important to get her out of a marriage based on lies. But we’ve done that now. And if you aren’t smart enough to stay away from her, we will come up with our own way of solving this little problem. Do you understand me?

Jack: It is so much healthier to express your feelings than keep them bottled up.

Allie: Yeah, but it’s just not something I do — crying in front of someone that I haven’t known for very long.

Jack: Look, maybe we haven’t known each other that long, but I’m not just anybody. I’m not a stranger. I’m your grandfather. And I have a feeling that something’s really on your mind that you’ve come a very long way to Genoa City, maybe — maybe to talk about it. I just want you to know you always have a soft spot to land here. I made a lot of mistakes with your father. I don’t want to repeat those mistakes.

Allie: You’re right. I came here because I could use someone to talk to. Something did happen.


Michael: I’m gonna make you a promise. We’re gonna hit every exotic destination on our wish list, and if you want to end up in the south of France, that’s where we’ll finish. But not quite yet, because we’re still in our prime, baby.

Lauren: Are we?

Michael: You don’t agree?

Lauren: Oh, I do.

Michael: [ Chuckles ] So I suggest that we continue to thrive in our respective careers. And…live our lives to the fullest. And then, when it’s time for us to walk off into the sunset, we’ll know it. And we’ll go hand-in-hand. What an adventure that will be.

Lauren: [Chuckles] Okay. Good point. But there is the difference between our careers. Running a successful chain of department stores isn’t dangerous. It’s relatively safe. No one is gonna put me behind bars because I declare pink the color of the season.

Michael: Oh, so bright.

Lauren: But it was muted.

Michael: Alright. True.

[ Sighs ] But like I said, I am convinced that things with Victor are going to settle down.

Lauren: Mm. I find that very hard to believe.

Michael: Time will tell. And if it becomes an issue, we will revisit this, okay?

Lauren: Okay.

Michael: Good.

Lauren: I am gonna go back to work.

Michael: Aww.

Lauren: But I would like you to compare and contrast something for me — our wonderful trip in the south of France to the delightful time you spent behind bars in Peru. I love you.

Ashland: What I want or plan is none of your damn business.

Adam: Well, that is a bit rude, considering I’m the reason you have half a billion dollars to toss around in the first place.

Ashland: I regret I took that money at all. It wasn’t worth giving up the woman I love.

Adam: I don’t buy that. You made your choice. You knew what the terms were. And requirements that you don’t seem to eager to honor now.

Ashland: Well, let me remind you again the terms of the deal. I agreed to walk away from the company and have my marriage annulled. That’s it. I have upheld my end of the bargain. So what’s the problem?

Adam: The problem is that Victoria fell for you at all. And she wasn’t the one that drove you out of town after she found out what you had done. It’s like she is still hanging on to the fantasy of the guy she thought she had fallen in love with


Adam: Ah. I’m gonna turn my attention back to Newman Media and turning it into the powerhouse I know it can be. Congratulations, Nikki, on your new position.

Nikki: Thank you.

Adam: Mm-hmm. I look forward to working with you both.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Victoria: Sally, look, I hope you won’t take this personally, but I’m really not in the mood for any company.

Sally: I totally get it. And for the record, it takes a lot more than that to offend me. Everybody needs to have time to kick back and relax, especially when they’ve been dealing with everything that you’ve had to. One body blow after another. So, yes, I will give you some privacy, no problem. I — I just hope you don’t mind me saying one thing. I so admire your strength and resilience. You are the most tenacious woman that I know. It doesn’t matter what life throws at you, you keep your head up and you keep pushing forward. It’s really inspiring.

Victoria: Thank you. Thank you so much for the compliment. I wasn’t expecting that.

Sally: Why on earth not?

Victoria: When I took the reins back at newman, you and adam lost your temporary titles. I can imagine you were very disappointed about that.

Sally: I’m actually perfectly satisfied being coo of newman media. Adam and I are really excited about our plans going forward.

Victoria: He said something along the same lines earlier.

Sally: See? We’re all on the same team. In a very good place. The only loser here is ashland, and he deserves it.

Michael: Thank you for meeting me here.

Victor: You’re welcome. Now, you didn’t make clear what you want to talk about.

Michael: I assume you’re aware that diane jenkins is back. I ran into her myself recently.

Victor: Yep. Hard as it is, she’s back in town, you’re right. I hope she soon gets the hell out of town.

Michael: What if she doesn’t?

Victor: Well, if she thinks that everyone here’s gonna let bygones be bygones, she’s sorely mistaken, and I’m gonna make sure that she realizes that, okay? Now, there’s something else i need to talk to you about.

Michael: Let me stop you right there, please.

Sharon: No, you’ve got the right time. There’s no confusion. We are expecting your delivery person between 8:00 and 9:00 A.M. Tomorrow. Perfect. Well, thanks for checking in. Hey.

Faith: Hey, mom. I picked up the dry cleaning.

Sharon: Oh, that was so nice of you. How — how’s your to-do list coming?

Faith: Almost done. I got the new items for mariah and tessa to carry, so old, blue, and new are done.

Sharon: Great, and I can just loan them something for borrowed.

Faith: Yeah, I figured. So we can cross that off.

Sharon: Excellent.

Faith: I’ll go hang this in your closet.

Sharon: Oh, no, you don’t have to. I was actually heading upstairs to get something anyway.

Faith: Just let me do it. What do you need? I’ll bring it down.

Sharon: Is there some reason you don’t want me to? Oh, I see. One of rey’s shirts — the one that I bought him in miami, the cuban one.

Faith: I’m sorry. I know you wanted to focus on mariah and the wedding today. Not think about…

Sharon: My loss.

Tessa: The bakery just called.

Mariah: What’s wrong?

Tessa: Nothing! They just wanted to confirm when and where to bring the cake tomorrow.

Mariah: Okay. Good.

Tessa: Okay, twitchy.

Mariah: Well, I almost lost out on having kyle officiate, and now I’m just waiting for something to go wrong.

Tessa: Wow, I was the worrywart earlier, and now we switched places.

Mariah: Well, I’m very jealous. What’s your secret?

Tessa: I don’t know, I just decided to take a deep breath and admit that everything was gonna be fine.

Mariah: Oh, god, even hearing you say that is making me superstitious and paranoid.

Tessa: Listen, you, the fact that the wedding is coming together has nothing to do with luck and is everything to do with the fact that your family is coming through for us in a major way.

Mariah: Yeah, that’s mostly for my mom. Yeah, they know she needs something happy and joyous in her life right now.

Tessa: Well, I’m glad that our love can give her that.

[ Knock on door ]

Mariah: Please don’t be something wrong.

Tessa: Okay, would you just relax? It’s probably someone with a wedding gift.

[ Gasps ] Crystal!

Crystal: Hey, sis. With downy infusions, let the scent set the mood.

Tessa: Give me that bag. Why didn’t you tell me when you were getting in? I would’ve met you at the airport with balloons and your maid-of-honor tiara.

Crystal: I knew you’d be frantic with all the last-minute stuff, and I didn’t want to get in the way. Although, I do know how to rock a tiara.

Mariah: Well, you look fantastic with or without sparkly accessories. Come here! Oh, let me get a look at you. Wow, you look so strong and so confident, like a whole new person.

Crystal: Thanks. Feels like I’ve grown up a lot in the time that I’ve been away. Which is good, I supposed, although I’ve missed you like crazy.

Tessa: That makes two of us!

Crystal: Oh! I’m so glad I get to be here in person for your big day.

Tessa: Yeah. Well, that was all rey. No one in the family had any idea that he was working to get the charges against you dropped.

Crystal: How’s sharon doing? I know they weren’t married long, like a year, year and a half. His death must be so hard on her.

Sharon: When I said I wanted to focus on the wedding, i didn’t mean that no one should talk about rey at all. I was just trying to give you all permission to enjoy the happy day without worrying about how I feel.

Faith: Oh.

Sharon: Obviously, he’s on my mind already anyway. I think about him every minute of the day.

Faith: Me too. It’s just when the lady at the dry cleaner said that he hadn’t picked up his shirt so it would be in your things, I realized that she didn’t know that he had died. She asked me to say hi to him, and I didn’t even know what to say.

Sharon: I’m so sorry.

Faith: I can’t believe he’s gone. It doesn’t seem real. Every time that the door opens, I look up and I expect it’s gonna be rey.

Sharon: So do I.

Faith: He was there for us through the scariest times — your cancer, my transplant, mariah’s kidnapping.

[ Sighs ] He always remained so calm and strong and refused to let us give up hope. Now everything turned out the way he promised, and he doesn’t even get to be here for it. It’s so messed up.

Sharon: It really is.

Victoria: I think that ashland came out of this just fine. Thanks to adam, he’s several hundred million dollars richer than he was.

Sally: Well, I doubt the money made him any happier, since he’s already given half of it away.

Victoria: How did you know about that?

Sally: I saw him talking about it with nick. And when adam and I spoke with him afterwards, he was anything but fine. I mean, granted, it was a brief conversation because ashland doesn’t trust adam, so of course he wasn’t gonna talk about how broken up he was over losing you, but it was very obvious to anyone with eyes.

Victoria: I think you are either totally misreading the situation or you’re greatly exaggerating. Either that, or he’s playing you and adam, the same way that billy did when he pretended to be falling apart, when he knew that you were following him around in your disguises, making your little spy videos.

Sally: Well, ashland couldn’t fool me. Not that I’m a better judge of character than you. That was not my point.

Victoria: Then what is?

Sally: Just it’s true what they say — takes one to know one. And I have been where ashland is now.

Victoria: What does that mean?

Sally: May I?

Victoria: Fine. Sit.

Michael: Lauren has stepped up her efforts to get me to bow out of this job.

Victor: What do you mean, on account of peru?

Michael: Well, it sure didn’t help.

Victor: What the hell does this have to do with your wife? You’re my lawyer. Do I need to hire someone else?

Michael: No, no. You don’t have to take it that far.

Victor: Well, then let’s start talking business, okay? Ashland locke is still in town. He’s circling the water like a shark.

Michael: Oh. I assume you want me to find a way to…neutralize him.

Victor: You bet, okay? More than that, I want to get rid of that S.O.B. Permanently.

Faith: I’m sorry. I was trying to stay positive today, for your sake.

Sharon: Don’t apologize. And don’t try to hide your feelings from me. You know, it helps me to know that other people see how special rey was and that they miss him, too.

Faith: I really do.

Sharon: Well, we’re gonna keep him in our hearts. And there’s another way that rey’s memory will never be forgotten. Your father told me that someone made a donation to new hope in rey’s honor, and it’s a large sum.

Faith: That’s great.

Sharon: Your father’s gonna use that to help a lot of people — build affordable housing and recreation centers, all kinds of resources for high-risk kids, and these were issues that rey really cared about.

Faith: That is so awesome.

Sharon: And this is a beautiful way of making sure that rey’s kindness and compassion are never forgotten.

Faith: Who made the donation?

Sharon: Um, well…your father said that the donor prefers to remain anonymous, and that way the focus stays where it belongs — on rey.

Michael: What exactly does your vision for permanently removing ashland entail?

Victor: I can assure you that you won’t be risking your life going after locke.

Michael: Not this time.

Victor: This man is making victoria’s life a hell, and i won’t stand for it.

Michael: Alright, alright, has ashland engaged in any behavior that we can report to a judge? Is he harassing victoria? Is he threatening victoria?

Victor: None of it. He’s just hovering around her, you know, trying to impress her with his undying love.

Michael: Well, do you think he’s sincere or is he just toying with her?

Victor: The point is that he is becoming frustrating.

Michael: How can you tell?

Victor: Because she’s very cold to him. And once he realized that his tactics weren’t working, he gave half of the money I gave him to new hope.

Michael: $250 million?

Victor: 250 million bucks.

Michael: Alright.

Victor: And here’s the kicker. He did it in rey rosales’ name. He wants it to fund charitable projects in rey’s honor. He’s trying very hard to convince victoria that his love for her has transformed him.

Michael: [ Scoffs ] Well, that’s one hell of a gesture.

Victor: Yeah.

Michael: Is it working?

Victor: Of course not.

Sally: Like your ex, i pretended to be deathly ill to get someone’s sympathy. To make them fall hopelessly in love with me. At least that was the plan, anyway.

Victoria: I didn’t think there was anyone else on this planet that would stoop so low.

Sally: If you want to let me have it, go ahead. If there’s some insults that you haven’t hurled at ashland yet, you can say them to me.

Victoria: I can see now why adam likes you so much. You truly are two of a kind.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] I know you didn’t mean it this way, but I’m going to choose to take that as a compliment.

Victoria: So did you pull it off? Is there some poor man out there that you scammed into marrying you?

Sally: Um…it didn’t get that far. It ended in disaster, because how could it not? Wyatt was so hurt and disgusted, he chose to cut me out of his life completely, just like you did with ashland — booting him out of the company, erasing his name from the letterhead, and annulling your marriage. Just like it never happened. So that is how I know that the guy’s pain and shame are real. I disagree with the people who think that he’s a sociopath. I believe that he feels true remorse.

Victoria: [ Scoffs ] Right.

Sally: I mean, of course, i never had the option of shelling out $250 million to buy redemption, but if I did, it would’ve been totally worth it because that is how horrible it feels to know that you have hit rock bottom and that you have hurt the one person that you love more than anything in this world. And for what? Money, power? I mean, you can’t hold either of those things in your arms. So, yeah, I’m sure the last thing you want to hear right now is that I feel sorry for ashland, but to be honest… I kind of do. If you’ve been living with heart disease,

Victoria: Your sympathy is misplaced. And you’re projecting.

Sally: Why do you say that?

Victoria: Just because you’ve regretted your actions, it doesn’t mean that ashland does. You were trying to hold on to someone that you loved, while ashland was using me so thathe could get what he really wanted, which was full control of newman/locke.

Sally: But now he’s lost all hope of ever gaining that, and he’s still hanging around. So it seems to me like he might have realized that there’s more important things in life.

Victoria: Ashland hates to lose, and he very much enjoys manipulating people.

[ Sighs ] So…when it comes right down to it, I really don’t care what his intentions are.

Sally: You have every right to feel that way. Too much has happened. So it really doesn’t matter how he feels or what he’s learned. I was at your wedding, so I saw him make this amazing declaration of love, so I guess it’s just hard for me to believe that at least some of that wasn’t genuine. But who cares? It’s too late. So I guess, I don’t know, best-case scenario for ashland is just to move on, like I did, and just try and do better with the next woman in his life.

Victoria: Right.

Sally: I mean, that’s how i know what adam and I have is healthy and strong because i learned from my mistakes. Is it fair that you invested so much time and love into ashland, teaching him how to be a better man, and now someone else gets to benefit from that? Hell no. And it’s totally unfair. And he’s probably gonna be haunted by how badly he treated you for the rest of his life. But he’s got no one to blame but himself. Anyway, I’ve definitely taken up too much of your time, so I…am going to head back to the office. But…I really hope things get better for you.

Victor: The point is victoria has finally wised up to what that man is all about. She knows she can’t trust a word coming out of that S.O.B.’S mouth.

Michael: Yeah, I can only imagine how painful that realization must have been. Do you think there’s any temptation on victoria’s part to believe him, that somehow the power of her love redeems him?

Victor: No. He fooled her once, he’s not gonna fool her again. But…that is what has got me worried.

Michael: Because ashland locke isn’t used to hearing the word no? Because he’s not the type to slink off quietly in defeat?

Victor: You said it.

Michael: [ Sighs ] Well…I know you’re worried that victoria’s continued rejection will just make matters worse.

Victor: We’ve got to come up with a plan…in case I need to rescue victoria. I want that bastard out of town permanently.

Nikki: What are you doing here? Lying in wait, hoping that victoria will come by again?

Ashland: I gather she told you we spoke earlier about my donation to new hope. She didn’t object, which I found gratifying.

Nikki: I’m sure what you find even more gratifying is how much it still upsets her to see you. Does that feed your voracious ego?

Ashland: Hurting victoria is the last thing I want. Every move I am making right now is about easing her pain.

Nikki: We learned a long time ago to pay attention to what you do, not what you say, since all you do is lie from morning till night.

Ashland: Nikki —

Nikki: You continue to claim that you love my daughter. If that’s true, prove it by leaving her alone.

Tessa: Well, crystal’s all settled in. She’s just in the shower.

Mariah: Excellent. I mean, how perfect did this work out? I can go to my mom’s, like we planned, and then crystal will be here so you’re not gonna be lonely.

Tessa: Oh, we have so much catching up to do. And I’m sure that sharon and faith will appreciate having this alone time with you for the last time before you’re a married woman.

Mariah: Can you believe it? I mean, the next time we see each other, we’re gonna be walking down the aisle.

[ Laughs ]

Trelegy for copd.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Sharon: So what do you think? There’s one for each guest, and all of the goodies that we talked about are in the bags.

Faith: Oh, my gosh, they came out fantastic.

Sharon: I don’t know. Do you really think so?

Faith: No, I mean it. I’m seriously impressed.

Sharon: Really?

Faith: Yeah, now I know where noah’s artistic talent comes from.

Sharon: Oh, that’s nice of you to say, but, no, they’re not perfect.

Faith: They’re hand-made. They’re not supposed to look like cookie-cutter, store-bought things.

Sharon: You know what? I agree. I actually don’t mind the little imperfections. It shows that this effort came from our hearts.

Faith: It kind of works with their relationship. Mariah and tessa don’t try to hide their imperfections either. To me, it’s even more romantic. They accept each other for who they are, no matter what, in spite of their flaws.

Sharon: Aww, you’re gonna make me cry.

Mariah: The bride is here! Well, one of them anyway.

Sharon: Hi!

Mariah: Hi!

Faith: I’m so happy that we’re getting a sleepover.

Mariah: Oh, me too.

Sharon: So what’s, like, the real reason behind this anyway?

Mariah: What do you mean?

Sharon: Well, are you superstitious? Are you afraid if you see your bride before the ceremony, it’ll be bad luck?

Mariah: Maybe a little, but, no, it’s — it’s mainly that we like some old traditions, you know? And it’s a great excuse — tessa gets to spend some time with crystal.

Sharon: Oh, what time does she get in?

Mariah: She just got in a little bit ago.

Sharon: I’m so happy that she could be here to join the celebration.

Mariah: I know. I mean, what rey did to make all of this happen, it’s — it’s an incredible gift.

Sharon: He’s still here with us, making his presence known.

Crystal: Sharon has the best taste in nail polish. I love this color for you.

Tessa: Ooh, me too. Should we paint our toes later?

Crystal: Sure.

[ Gasps ] Wow. That portrait of you and mariah.

Tessa: Yeah, it’s cool, right?

Crystal: Yeah.

Tessa: Noah painted it.

Crystal: It’s stunning. He couldn’ have created something so gorgeous for you unless he’s gotten over how it all started.

Tessa: Well, it was a bit awkward when he first came back, but we’ve moved on from that.

Crystal: Glad to hear it. And what about sharon? Are things copacetic between you two? I know there have been times that she’s had her issues with you.

Tessa: Yeah, but for pretty good reason.

[ Both laugh ] But we’ve moved past that now. We’re really close.

Crystal: That’s so awesome.

Tessa: Well, we had to lean on each other when mariah went missing. And rey was so supportive.

Crystal: I still have to pinch myself thinking about my life now. That I’m finally out from under those charges. I’m free, thanks to rey rosales, this person that I never even met.

Tessa: It’s so phenomenal.

Crystal: Things were okay in canada — better than okay. But I’d gotten used to thinking that I was never gonna be able to have the kind of life that i wanted. That I’d always have to hide and look over my shoulder and worry if I was safe. But now I can go where I want and I can do whatever I want. I wish I had the chance to thank rey. He changed everything for me.

Tessa: You would’ve loved him.

Crystal: The whole family sounds amazing. And now you get to be a part of it.

Tessa: [ Laughs ]

Ashland: [ Sighs ] Look, I don’t want to upset you, but I can’t leave things the way we just did. I would hate to think that you’re telling victoria that i never cared for her because nothing could be further from the truth.

Nikki: I think that song’s getting a little old.

Ashland: I should never have deceived her. It was cruel, it was callous, and you’ll get no argument from me on that. But I eventually, belatedly, realized what a treasure my wife is. I’m just trying to help her to understand that and maybe one day win her forgiveness.

Nikki: Well, that would be even more cruel than what you have done so far, because you’re toxic. You are an arrogant, emotionally stunted narcissist, incapable of putting other people’s needs ahead of your own.

[ Scoffs ] Everything is a game to you. Just another move on the chessboard. Well, my daughter deserves better than that.

Victoria: What’s going on here? With depression, you just feel…blah.

Nikki: I was just sharing with ashland what I think about him and how selfish he is for continuing to inflict his presence on you.

Ashland: I’m sorry. I should’ve recognized that a mother as protective as you are would not want to hear an apology from me, no matter how heartfelt.

Nikki: Oh, please.

Victoria: Mom, it’s not worth your time to get into it with him. Doesn’t matter where he goes or what he does, it’s his business. I honestly don’t care.

Nikki: I don’t share my daughter’s indifference. Victor and I didn’t go after you before because it was more important to get her out of a marriage based on lies. But we’ve done that now. And if you aren’t smart enough to stay away from her, we will come up with our own way of solving this little problem. Do you understand me?

Tessa: Here you go.

Crystal: Thank you.

Tessa: It’s pretty wild that I’m gonna be joining this big, boisterous, loving family, especially after the way you and I grew up. It was so chaotic and unpredictable.

Crystal: Yeah.

Tessa: I’ve been thinking about it a lot because mariah and I decided to have kids.

Crystal: You’re gonna be a mom?

Tessa: Is that just super crazy?

Crystal: It’s crazy awesome! You have the biggest heart of anyone I know, and you practically raised me.

Tessa: It was mariah’s idea. It took me a while, but then i realized that adoption was the best thing for us.

Crystal: That’s perfect. You can give a kid in a bad situation a loving home, save them from growing up the way that we did.

Tessa: Well…that’s why i was so hesitant at first. Mariah and I both had crappy childhoods, and hers was worse in some ways, if you can imagine that, because it was an even more whacked-out environment.

Crystal: I can’t imagine what that would even be.

Tessa: A literal cult.

Crystal: Oh, my god. That — that must have been horrible.

Tessa: We decided that we needed to know that we had what it takes to be good spouses and parents so that we don’t perpetuate the same cycle and saddle our kids with the same unresolved baggage.

Crystal: So I take it that you got over your fears, since you’re taking the plunge tomorrow?

Tessa: Let’s put it this way — this is as fearless as we’re gonna get.

Crystal: [ Chuckles ] So what made the difference?

Tessa: It wasn’t just one thing. We just decided that we weren’t gonna let this thing fail. And we’ve come close many, many times to losing everything, but we always found a way to come back to each other. To get better and make things right.

Crystal: You’re basically talking about trust. Or what I imagine that would feel like, if and when I ever experience it.

Tessa: Well, if it happened for me, of all people, then it can definitely happen for you.

Crystal: Okay, enough. We’re getting way too deep.

[ Chuckles ]

Tessa: Yeah, you’re probably right.

Crystal: Tonight is about celebrating and having fun and getting ready for your big day tomorrow. So what’s next on our beauty agenda?

Tessa: Mm. Hmm.

Crystal: [ Gasps ] Hair. What do you think — do we do a trial run?

Tessa: [ Gasps ] Yeah, i would love that.

Crystal: So are the brides thinking of having updos or are we thinking maybe something a little more boho chic?

Tessa: Probably boho chic, ’cause I feel like that’s more manageable for me.

Crystal: Yeah.

[ Both laugh ]

Mariah: Oh, here she comes.

Sharon: Mm.

Faith: So what are you looking forward to most tomorrow? Like, for real, no sarcasm.

Mariah: Well, that — that limits my options.

Faith: Come on, try. I know you can do it.

Mariah: Okay, let me think. Hmm. Is it cheesy that it’s actually getting to marry the love of my life?

Faith: Yes, but I’ll allow it. I’m most excited for the dancing. It’s the best part of weddings. I just can’t wait to get out on that dance floor.

Sharon: Well, that’s good, because we’ll know where to find you when it comes time to do the bouquet toss.&

Mariah: Oh.

Faith: Oh, yeah, about that, I hope you won’t be offended, mariah, but I’m not gonna go too nuts trying to catch it. Imagine how moses would react. It would totally freak him out.

Mariah: Eh, she has a point.

Faith: Mom, what are you most looking forward to?

Sharon: All of it. I’ve missed out on so many important moments and events in mariah’s life. I just plan on soaking this one up.

Nikki: Poor thing, you must be exhausted.

Victoria: I’m just tired of this day.

Nikki: Well, I have the perfect cure for that.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] You do?

Nikki: Yeah. Why don’t we take a week and go to some fabulous spa in europe, just the two of us? I mean, we can celebrate our new working partnership and hammer out some long-term goals. It would be so good for both of us.

Victoria: Mom, I know what you’re trying to do, and I am grateful, but the timing is wrong.

Nikki: Well, I disagree. I think this is a perfect time for a mother-daughter trip.

Victoria: Far away from ashland?

Nikki: Oh, ashland who?

Victoria: Look, we just have too much on our plate right now. We have to officially change the name of the company back to newman enterprises. Do we keep it quiet or do we do a big publicity push? And then we have to transition you into your new role and find out which of the executives can be trusted to be loyal now that ashland is gone.

Nikki: Darling, I hear you, but you haven’t had a real break from any of this since we found out what ashland was up to. You haven’t given yourself the time to really accept it.

Victoria: Mother, I don’t want you to worry about that. I’m — I’m not on the verge of a nervous breakdown. I’m not — not even close. Look, I appreciate your concern, really, I do, but I’m gonna get through this. I promise.

Ashland: I’ll have one more, please. Thank you.

Sally: The two of you make quite the pair.

Ashland: I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Sally: Victoria was here a little bit ago, sitting on that same exact stool in almost the same exact mood. Only she hid it a little better.

Ashland: And you find this entertaining?

Sally: No, I find it all very sad. Two people who obviously miss each other — one too proud to admit it and the other one too proud to keep up the fight.

Ashland: Why do you care? What does any of this have to do with you?

Sally: Not a thing. I’m just a sucker for romance. I hope you have a very nice evening.

Sharon: Hey, you too excited to sleep?

Mariah: Yeah, I think i probably need to make some of that tea you’re always recommending me.

Sharon: Chamomile.

Mariah: Yeah, I don’t want to nod off during the ceremony, so I should probably get some sleep. I mean, that would be very bad.

[ Chuckles ]

Sharon: Somehow, I don’t see that happening.

Mariah: You know, for so long, I was watching people pairing up, starting families and building their futures together…and it was all that i wanted, but I thought that it was gonna pass me by. I’m so sorry. That must sound so insensitive.

Sharon: Why?

Mariah: Because you just lost the partner that you thought you were gonna spend forever with.

Sharon: Hey, stop, okay? There is nothing about your happiness that hurts me, i promise. Someday when you have kids of your own, you’re gonna realize that you actually live for this.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Sharon: The love that you found with tessa, it’s amazing. It’s the best. It’S…

[ Sighs ] You know, this is everything that I want for you. This is everything I want for my girl, so don’t you dare feel guilty even for a second, okay?

Mariah: Okay.

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

Summer: Oh, you must be allie.

Allie: I am.

Summer: I’m summer, kyle’s wife.

Amanda: Man, I am really digging this ’70s vibe.

Devon: Yeah, noah really knew what he was doing.

Elena: Yeah, someone understood the assignment. Look at this place.

Faith: Everyone, please take a seat so we can celebrate our super-funky couple and lift them up with the power of our love.

Young & The Restless Transcript

Y&R logo

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Sharon: We’re home!

Faith: Mom, I missed you so much!

Sharon: I missed you, too. Ah! You know what? Even though it was a short trip, I’m really glad I’m home.

Faith: I wish you’d let me go with you.

Sharon: You know what, going alone, that was the right decision. And it’s okay. It’s fine, I’m home now.

Faith: Why don’t I take your bags upstairs for you? Meanwhile you can have a nice hot bath, maybe take a nap, get some rest from your trip.

Sharon: Actually, I’m not tired at all. And I promise I’ll tell you all about rey’s memorial later. Right now I want to focus on the wedding that’s happening tomorrow. I’ll bet there’s a couple of brides that could use our love and support.

Tessa: Can you believe it? Tomorrow’s the big day!

Mariah: Did we forget anything? I think I checked everything off the list.

Tessa: Well, did you forget to put anything on the list?

Mariah: That is not a comforting thought. Why would you say something like that?

Tessa: Oh, lists are only as good as you make them.

Mariah: No, I — I think I have everything. It’s all gonna be fine, i promise.

Tessa: Okay.

Mariah: Noah’s taking care of the venue and my mom took care of the flowers before she left for miami, so…

Tessa: Well, we had our final fittings with chelsea.

Mariah: Mm-hmm.

Tessa: And we should get our dresses by the end of the day. Did you write your vows?

Mariah: Yes. Now I just have to practice reciting them without dissolving into a puddle on the floor.

[ Chuckles ]

Tessa: Oh, I can’t wait to recite our vows in front of each other and in front of everyone we love.

Mariah: Oh, no.

Tessa: What?

Mariah: Kyle. Oh, my god, he never confirmed if he was gonna officiate.

Tessa: No, relax. If kyle can’t do it, I’m sure devon will be happy to do it.

Mariah: No, I love devon, but I had my heart set on kyle. I mean, it felt like it was meant to be. How could I let something so big just slip my mind?

[ Knock on door ]

Noah: Okay, brides, grab your things. Come with me. I got something to show you.

Mariah: Does it have to be right now?

Victoria: Ashland. My brother told me about your offer to donate half of your buyout settlement to new hope. Your stipulation being that any project he use it for be done in rey’s name.

Ashland: Yeah, well, I’m — I’m meeting with nick later to hear his decision. I’m hoping he’ll take me up on it.

Victoria: I absolutely agree. A number that large could do a lot of good in the right hands.

Ashland: It pains me to know that you no longer think of my hands as the right hands.

Victoria: I very much appreciate your generous gesture, but after everything you’ve done, I’m sure that you can understand how hard it would be for me to believe that you don’t have an ulterior motive.

Sally: Hope I’m not interrupting. I thought maybe we could go over newman’s updated marketing budget. That is, unless you’ve decided that you’re leaving the company.

Adam: Will you close the door? I’ve thought a lot about what I’m going to do since our last conversation, and after weighing the pros and cons, I have decided that I can’t walk away from my family or the chance of ever running newman enterprises.

Sally: And you believe it’s worth putting up with all the family drama?

Adam: It frustrates me that my dad can’t see that victoria does not deserve the position after everything that went on with ashland, but like I said before, if I were to leave now, she wins.

Sally: Well, I meant what i said. I will support you with whatever you decide.

Adam: I have already made my decision. I want newman enterprises. Every single bit of it. I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,

provided by…

Sally: Okay. Taking charge of newman enterprises is a strong, bold goal. But didn’t you say you did that once before and it didn’t stick?

Adam: I did.

Sally: Okay, so failure is not an option for you this time. Alright, so how do we pull this off? ‘Cause if it’s what you want, I’m all in.

Adam: It came to me last night. I have the perfect plan. And ashland locke remains the key.

Ashland: I don’t blame you for being suspicious, but i assure you, my motivation is guilt. I just feel that somehow I have to pay back for the wrong that i did to you and your family and for rey rosales’ death.

Victoria: Ashland —

Ashland: No, I know it was an accident, but I also know that none would have been on the road that night if it weren’t for what I did, the pain that i caused you. It was why you were driving that night, it’s why I was following you, and why the three of us were in the wrong place at the wrong time, and I have great regret about all of that.

Victoria: The autopsy report revealed that rey died of a heart attack. That’s what caused the accident. So you don’t need to feel guilty, at least not about that.

Ashland: [ Exhales sharply ] Thank you. You didn’t have to tell me that. You could’ve let me continue to blame myself.

Victoria: Well, I figured that you have enough to feel guilty about. So now that you know that you have no culpability in rey’s death, maybe you want to talk to my brother and let him know that you might want to withdraw your offer.

Ashland: Rey rosales was a good man. He deserves to be honored. My offer still stands.

Sharon: I am okay, faith. Really. The wedding is what we need to turn all of our attention to right now. In fact, I phoned mariah as soon as I touched down. I told her I would head straight over there to help work out any last-minute details. So don’t worry about me, okay?

Nick: Hey, could you give us a second? There’s something I want to talk to your mom about.

Faith: Sure. I’ll go put the gifts together that you asked me to get for the brides.

Sharon: Did something happen?

Nick: No, there’s just something I want to run by you.

Sharon: Okay.

Nick: Somebody wants to make a rather sizable donation to new hope. It is enough to buy buildings and homes and programs for the community, and they want to do it in rey’s name.

Sharon: That’s amazing news. Rey always admired the work that you did at new hope. I know that he would be honored. Can I ask how much?

Nick: It’s $250 million.

Sharon: What?! Who’s the donor?

Nick: That’s the thing. It’s ashland locke.

Mariah: Oh, my god. Noah, you completely transformed that place. I love it.

Tessa: Yeah, the top of the tower looks amazing. It’s not just what you did with the decor, it’s like getting married at an art installation.

Mariah: Yeah, and it turns into this, like, cool party venue afterwards for the reception.

Noah: I think you mean after-party. Right? I mean, “reception” just sounds so — so traditional, so stuffy, so square.

Tessa: Square?

Noah: What? I mean, come on, didn’t you guys trust me to make you something special?

Mariah: No, of course we trusted you, but this is just — it’s beyond.

Noah: Good, ’cause that’s exactly what I was going for.

Tessa: How can we ever thank you?

Mariah: Yeah, words are not enough.

Noah: You know, mariah, i think your undying gratitude is more than enough. Anyway, now that that’s done, i guess you two can get back to freaking out about whatever it was you were freaking out about. Anything I can help with?

Mariah: No, unless you want to become an ordained minister by tomorrow.

Noah: Okay, that doesn’t sound good.

[ Knock on door ]

Mariah: Kyle! Oh, my goodness, thank god. Please, please tell me that you’re here to let us know that you’re officiating the wedding.

Kyle: That’s why I’m here. I need to talk to you about that. -Fixed. -That’s my son.

Nick: Don’t worry, the donation will be anonymous. Ashland’s name can appear nowhere near it. I’ve really been struggling with this, though. I cannot stand that creep. I know exactly why he’s doing it, it’s just to get victoria’s forgiveness.

Sharon: Just take the money, nick.

Nick: Yeah?

Sharon: Take it. Take every dime you can get. I know that you hate that man, and so do I, but rey would want to see something bad turned into something good. And all that money helping so many people in rey’s name — as far as I’m concerned, this is nothing less than poetic justice.

Tessa: Noah, why don’t we go grab some coffee? I think sharon’s gonna be here soon to help us with the final details.

Noah: Yeah, that sounds like it could take some caffeine.

Mariah: Look, I know that you’ve got a whole lot on your plate with your mom, but please tell me you’re not here to disappoint me.

Kyle: I had planned to go back to milan last night. With everything that’s happened with my mother, I really just wanted to get back and talk it over with summer.

Mariah: You were gonna leave without telling me.

Kyle: That’s the thing, I’m so distracted, I forgot about my promise to be here for the wedding, and it hit me while i was packing.

Mariah: Got it. Look, I can’t say I’m not a little disappointed, but i understand why you need to talk to summer.

Kyle: That’s why I called her, and she convinced me to stay in genoa city for the wedding. She’s gonna free up her schedule and come here to support me with my mom.

Mariah: Wait, really? Summer was willing to do that? Well, okay, I guess she’s coming to the wedding, too, and because you’re staying, that means you can officiate, right? I was panicking because I hadn’t heard from you, and then tessa was suggesting devon, and, i mean, I love him, but this means that you can officiate, right? You’re here to save the day?

Sally: Ashland? Didn’t you just broker a half a billion dollar deal to get rid of him? How is he now the linchpin in a plan to take control of newman?

Adam: I thought that me getting ashland out would make me a hero in my dad’s eyes and earn his gratitude. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, but dad still despises locke for what he did to victoria.

Sally: Justifiably.

Adam: And even after everything locke has done, my sister still seems to be conflicted.

Sally: Well, I mean, she still loves him. It’s not surprising you can’t just turn your heart off like a light switch. It’s hard to believe that someone that you love so much, you thought loved you, could betray you like that.

Adam: Well, I think she’s definitely still struggling with that.

Sally: Yeah, I mean, who wouldn’t? It’s hard to face the fact that your husband really is the monster that everyone else tried to tell you that he was. She thought she tamed the savage beast.

Adam: And then he rescued her in a burning car and saved her life.

Sally: Yeah, but I don’t — i don’t think that was orchestrated. Do you?

Adam: No. But I do think that he is going to try to use that to win her back.

Sally: Well, maybe he really loves her. ‘Cause betraying her and loving her aren’t mutually exclusive.

Adam: I think it is more about ego and being rejected than love, but regardless of what his motivations are, I realized something. If ashland were to win back victoria’s love and trust, one of two things is gonna happen. Either ashland is gonna get victoria as far away from my father and all things newman as possible, or dad is gonna be so furious that she took him back, he’s finally going to question her ability to run the company.

Sally: But either way, it blows the door wide open for you to take over.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Sally: Makes sense. But all of this is predicated on ashland winning victoria back. So where do we come in?

Adam: Well, what if we were able to help reignite the romance?

Ashland: Ah. I was pleased to hear from you.

Nick: I’ve decided to accept your donation to new hope, on one condition.

Ashland: What’s that?

Nick: The donation remains anonymous as discussed. If you are truly doing this out of the goodness of whatever heart you claim to have and it’s not an attempt to repair your disgraced reputation, shouldn’t be a problem, right?

Ashland: That was always my intention.

Nick: Well, then we got a deal. But just so you know, this doesn’t make us cool. I think you’re a snake and you always will be.

Ashland: Well, I’m glad you’re accepting my offer. I have no expectation it will change your view of me.

Nick: Good. ‘Cause it won’T. I know you’re doing this to make yourself look better in victoria’s eyes.

Ashland: You’re making assumptions with no basis whatsoever.

Nick: If you truly loved my sister and you wanted what’s best for her, you would leave town forever and give her a chance to rebuild her life that you ripped to shreds with all your lies and deceit.

Ashland: I am not leaving town. Harrison is here. I intend to spend as much with him as possible, but I will promise you this — I won’t cause victoria any more hurt than I already have. I am solely focused on improving myself right now. In fact, that’s what this entire donation is about — a small first step towards making amends.

Nick: I don’t buy it for one second. And I don’t trust you as far as I can spit. You’re just trying to maneuver your way back into victoria’s life so you can manipulate her again, but I’m letting you know right now, I and the rest of the family will not let that happen again.

Ashland: Nick, you don’t intimidate me at all. The newmans have already closed ranks around victoria and tried to run me out of town. Obviously, it didn’t work.

Nick: Well, next time, we’ll get a little more creative and certainly more extreme.

Sally: Your plan is intriguing, and I love how passionate you are about all of it. But it’s kind of risky, because if victor finds out that you’re the one pulling the strings, he could turn on you, and there’s no coming back from that.

Adam: That’s why we have to be extremely subtle. We can’t appear to be matchmaking. And we certainly can’t collude with ashland in any way.

Sally: No, absolutely not, because we know he can’t be trusted.

Adam: Well, if we do this right, my father will never know that we instigated the whole thing. That is what is genius about this plan is we don’t have to do anything overt for it to work. We don’t have to make any deals, no bribes. And no one but the two of us will know anything about it.

Sally: So how do we pull this off?

Adam: Well, all we need to do is plant a few seeds, laying the groundwork for victoria and ashland to get back together. Clearly he is already working on that. Why else would he be sticking around after the big payout?

Sally: Then we just fan a few flames and ride the coattails of ashland’s efforts.

Adam: Right into the newman enterprises ceo office. Because if victoria were to take ashland back, my father would have to question her state of mind and her fitness for the job.

Kyle: Mariah, I know you’re counting on me, but I’m afraid i might end up letting you down. I mean, right now I’m in such a confused head space, I could mess up everything.

Mariah: Why would you say that?

Kyle: I almost forgot i promised to officiate your wedding and hopped a plane back to milan.

Mariah: Look, I appreciate your candor, and I know how distracted you’ve been with everything you’re going through. Because I know that you want to be there for me and that you could never, ever do anything to disappoint me.

Kyle: Not intentionally. Of course not. But —

Mariah: No “buts.” Look, maybe tomorrow is the perfect way to clear your head from some of the turmoil you’ve been in. You’d be a part of a day that represents love and romance. Plus, you’d be launching us into this amazing journey of bonding, family, motherhood. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have brought that up. I know what you’re going through.

Kyle: It’s okay. You and tessa will make amazing moms.

Mariah: And none of that would be possible without you. I will never forget what you did for tessa and me. Pushing us into that first date. And it’ll be like the magical completion of the circle. And, you know, magic is way too rare to say no to, right?

Tessa: Do you think that mariah’s gonna be able to get kyle to officiate? I just know it means so much to her, and I got crystal at the wedding, so I want to make sure that she gets everything she wants.

Noah: You two.

Tessa: What?

Noah: You always want the best for each other.

Tessa: Well, I mean, that’s how I knew I was falling in love. I wanted something for someone else more than I wanted anything for myself.

Noah: And that is why i sincerely hope that this is the most extraordinary wedding ever. It’s what you both deserve.

Tessa: I mean, you’ve already done so much for us. The top of the tower looks like a magical space. I absolutely cannot wait for the guests to see it. And I am glad that we got past all the awkwardness between us.

Noah: Yeah, me too. And I’m glad the three of us were able to work through it, and I have you to credit for being so open and honest with mariah and me. Tessa, I hope you know that I’ll always love you, as a friend and as the woman who has made my sister very, very happy.

Tessa: Your friendship means so much to me. And soon we’re gonna be family.

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

Tessa: [ Laughs ]

Ashland: Hmm. Interesting. Is this part of what you were warning me about, the newman effort to do something more extreme?

Nick: I hate to sound ungracious about a quarter of a billion dollars donation, but can we get this moving?

Ashland: Sure.

[ Clears throat ] Yes, the wire transfer we talked about. Yes. To the new hope account. Thank you. Done.

Nick: Well, thank you, ashland, for your generosity. And at least it’ll be in rey’s name and not yours.

Ashland: And I know you’ll put the money to good use.

Nick: Oh, I will. At least one good thing will come from all your lies.

Adam: Well, I bet you think if you give half your payout money to new hope, it’s a clever power play. I mean, how can victoria not look positively on that, right? I mean, that doesn’t mean that she’s even gonna consider forgiving you and taking you back. Don’t tell me that you’re actually holding out hope for that. The lows of bipolar depression

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

[ Knock on door ]

Nikki: Hey, where’s the coffee you promised me from crimson lights?

Victoria: I’m sorry. I completely forgot.

Nikki: Isn’t that why you went there?

Victoria: [ Sighs ] I just — I got distracted.

Nikki: Really?

Victoria: I ran into ashland, and I told him that I had heard about his charitable offer.

Nikki: Uh-huh. Did you make it clear that his very expensive ploy to earn your forgiveness won’t work?

Victoria: He didn’t know that rey had a heart attack and that’s what caused the accident.

Nikki: So did that change his mind about making the donation in rey’s name?

Victoria: No.

Nikki: Honey, I sense that you’re haunted by your feelings for ashland. Is that true? Because if it is, it’s perfectly normal to feel conflicted.

Victoria: I have no residual feelings lingering. I’ve been able to push them all away.

Nikki: Well, I think maybe you’ve pushed them down, not away, and that will only make your emotional turmoil worse down the line. Honey, it’s best to deal with it now, before it eats you up inside.

Kyle: Okay, fine! You’re right. Officiating your wedding is the right thing to do. You win.

Mariah: Yes! Oh, my gosh, thank you so much! Thank you. I knew you wouldn’t let me down.

Kyle: Well, you sure did pour it on thick.

Mariah: Oh, I can be very persuasive when I want something, especially if it’s

this important to me.

Kyle: Yeah, and I’m honored. And don’t let the fact that you had to push me into it detract from how meaningful this is to me. And I’m thrilled you even asked.

Mariah: The minute that I saw that you were back in genoa city, I just knew it was meant to be. I just had to convince you of that.

Kyle: Job well done.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Kyle: Well, I promise you my head is on straight now. I will take care of everything this afternoon, and I’ll be ready for tomorrow.

Mariah: Okay, it’s just a few clicks on the internet, and then you will be ready to pronounce us wife and wife. And don’t worry about writing anything. We’re gonna give you a script.

Kyle: Uh, I may want to say a few words myself, if you don’t mind.

Mariah: I don’t mind at all. I’m just so grateful that you’re willing to do this. And don’t worry, okay? I am here for you as a friend. I’ve got your back while you’re dealing with your mom, okay?

Ashland: What I want or plan is none of your damn business.

Adam: Well, that is a bit rude, considering I’m the reason you have half a billion dollars to toss around in the first place.

Ashland: I regret I took that money at all. It wasn’t worth giving up the woman I love.

Adam: I don’t buy that. You made your choice. You knew what the terms were. And requirements that you don’t seem to eager to honor now.

Ashland: Well, let me remind you again the terms of the deal. I agreed to walk away from the company and have my marriage annulled. That’s it. I have upheld my end of the bargain. So what’s the problem?

Adam: The problem is that victoria fell for you at all. And she wasn’t the one that drove you out of town after she found out what you had done. It’s like she is still hanging on to the fantasy of the guy she thought she had fallen in love with.

Tessa: Look who I found.

Mariah: Hey!

Sharon: Hi.

Mariah: Mom, welcome back.

Sharon: Thank you. Faith and I stopped by the florist on our way here. You’ll be happy to know everything’s on track for tomorrow.

Faith: The flowers will be delivered first thing tomorrow morning.

Sharon: So what’s next?

Mariah: Well, mom, you’ve got to be exhausted from your trip.

Tessa: Yeah, mariah’s right. Maybe you should rest.

Noah: Yeah, you don’t want to be worn out for tomorrow, right?

Mariah: I’m still sorry that one of us didn’t go with you.

Sharon: Okay, you guys need to stop worrying about me. You know, maybe it’ll help if i tell you about rey’s service.

Mariah: How was it?

Sharon: It was really lovely. And it helped me to be there with them as we all said our goodbyes. It was really emotional, but i was very grateful to have that time with celeste and lola and arturo and their extended family and friends, and they all had so many nice things to say about rey. And they understood why I came there alone.

Mariah: How is lola?

Sharon: She is very excited hearing about your wedding plans, and she’s really sorry that she can’t make it.

Faith: I’m sorry, too.

Sharon: Okay, well, no more “sorrys,” no more sadness. All that matters now is making sure that we pull off the perfect wedding tomorrow for our beautiful brides. Rey would want nothing less than that. So what else do we have to do?

Trelegy for copd.

Tessa: I think we’ve got everything under control.

Mariah: Yeah, especially now that we have kyle locked in to officiate.

Tessa: Alright, he’s in!

Mariah: Mm-hmm.

Faith: Kyle will be great.

Mariah: No, I think we’re good. Mom, you should see the venue. Noah nailed it.

Sharon: Well, I would expect nothing less from my brilliant, talented son.

Faith: How about we give mom a project to work on? I mean, she won’t be happy unless she’s busy doing something for the big day.

[ Laughter ]

Mariah: Let me think. Ooh, the gift bags. We still need to assemble them and put in, like, our party favors, our keepsakes.

Sharon: Yeah, I’d be happy to.

Faith: I volunteer to be your assistant.

Sharon: Great. And speaking of gifts, I have one for the brides.

Mariah: Oh, wow.

Sharon: This is face masks, nail polish, bubble bath, and herbal tea — everything you need to just pamper yourselves today.

Tessa: That is so thoughtful.

Mariah: Leave it to you to get the perfect pre-wedding gift.

Sharon: Well, all I want is for you to just relax today and accept that everything’s done. And if it’s not, we are going to take care of it, because all that matters is that tomorrow we have the perfect wedding for the two most perfect brides.

Noah: That’s the plan.

Sharon: All you need right now is each other, and tomorrow you’ll have your family around to hear you say your vows.

Mariah: Thanks, mom.

Sharon: Faith and I better get going on this project. We’ll just check in with you later.

Mariah: Yeah.

Noah: Yeah, I should go too, actually. I have some last-minute things i need to do at the venue.

Sharon: Alright.

Mariah: Bye. Love you. Mwah. Bye. Love you.

Tessa: See you guys tomorrow.

Mariah: [ Sighs, chuckles ]

Tessa: Tomorrow. Just think.

Mariah: We’re gonna be saying our vows, bonding our lives together forever.

Tessa: I can’t wait.

Sally: Well, the coast is clear. From what I could see, the hint that victoria still has feelings for ashland hit a bullseye.

Adam: You really think so?

Sally: Yes, I could see his eyes light up, and the best part was the fact that you made it seem like an insult. Well played.

Adam: I will see you back at the office. Think it’s time to plant another seed.

Victoria: You’re right, mom. Despite everything, there is still a part of me that loves ashland.

[ Sighs ] And I hate feeling this way. I hate it. It’s — it’s mortifying.

Nikki: Honey, you can’t beat yourself up over this.

Victoria: And you know what the worst part of it is? I keep thinking, “what if, for the first time in his life, ashland is telling the truth?” What if falling in love with me has changed him and he regrets what his lies have done to all of us? Oh, my god, just hearing myself say that, I just feel weak and i feel helpless. And…believe me, I am doing my damndest to push these feelings away. It’s humiliating.

Nikki: As much as I hate what ashland did, everything you just said is perfectly reasonable.

Victoria: It is?

Nikki: Yes! Your father had to show me a lot of proof before I could believe that ashland had done all of these things. It was just so hard because his love for you seemed so sincere, and I thought, “well, my goodness, how could anyone possibly fabricate something like this?” I mean, I don’t know, maybe his love for you is the only true thing about him. But if it is, is that really worth complete forgiveness?

Victoria: [ Sighs ] No, of course not. Nothing could undo the wrong that he did to all of us.

Nikki: What about saving your life?

Sharon: So how’d it go with ashland?

Nick: Well, as much as I hate spending any time around that guy, I stayed just long enough to close the deal. So now new hope has $250 million to spend on life-changing projects for people in need, and it’s all in rey’s name.

Sharon: You did the right thing, nick. I can’t wait to go to the first ribbon-cutting ceremony. And I know that rey will be smiling down on us.

Nick: Yeah. So what’s on the agenda for the rest of your day?

Sharon: Oh, mariah has asked me to assemble these gift bags just to keep me busy and feeling useful. Faith went out to get some supplies, but I am going to floor her with how amazing these gift bags are gonna be.

Nick: Hey. Look at me. How you are really? And you don’t have to be careful with me. The kids aren’t around, so they can’t overhear. It’s just you and me. With depression, you just feel…blah.

Victoria: I’m still trying to figure out what it means — ashland rescuing me. Adam. Is there something that we can help you with?

Adam: [ Chuckles ] You know, I can’t help but point out the lack of gratitude for getting ashland out of your life and out of our company.

Victoria: And I can’t get over your need for continual positive reinforcement. You know you’re never gonna thrive in business that way. It’s not always all about you.

Nikki: Again, is there something we can do for you?

Adam: I just wanted to come by to tell victoria that I’ve accepted her decision not to be named co-ceo. And I’m not gonna fight you on it or work on our dad to pressure you about it.

Victoria: Oh, gee, thank you so much for your acceptance. But not that I need it, it’s a done deal.

Adam: Ah. I’m gonna turn my attention back to newman media and turning it into the powerhouse I know it can be. Congratulations, nikki, on your new position.

Nikki: Thank you.

Adam: Mm-hmm. I look forward to working with you both.

Nikki: The hell was that about?

Victoria: I have no idea, but I could use a little fresh air and a break from all things newman.

Sharon: Well, it was hard in miami at first. Seeing how deeply so many people will miss rey. But loss also brings people together. And I really bonded with celeste and lola and arturo over our grief, and we said goodbye. Lola’s very excited about the wedding. Um…arturo’s little boy, he didn’t really understand why we were all there together. He just knew that he was surrounded by people he loves, and that was a reminder that we need to celebrate all we have right now. Because life goes on.

Nick: That’s what we have to focus on.

Sharon: That’s why I’m putting all of my energy into making sure that mariah and tessa have an amazing day.

Nick: Well, I am very, very proud of you and your strength.

Sharon: You and I have been through hell before, more than once. We’ve always made it through. Really, what other choice is there? But that’s why this wedding, this joyous, life-affirming event couldn’t be coming at a better time.

Sally: Victoria. How are you doing since the accident?

Victoria: I’m healing.

Sally: I’m sorry for everything you’ve been through.

Victoria: Thank you.

Sally: I’m impressed that you’re back to work so soon. After everything that’s happened, I bet you’re here to just escape the office intrigue. It’s actually perfect timing because I have been wanting to speak with you. Can I buy you a drink?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Jack: Allie, I’m sorry if i overstepped in saying that the abbotts were your family. I didn’t want to say anything to upset you. I just — I’ve come to think of you as part of my family.

Allie: You didn’t — you didn’t do anything wrong, jack. And I really appreciate you saying that. It’s just…

[ Sniffles ] I’m so sorry.

Jack: No, no, no. You have nothing to apologize for.

Allie: [ Crying ]

Jack: It’s okay. I got the sense that something’s weighing on you from the moment you got here. I’m sorry I had to take off for a little while. That would never have happened if I hadn’t had another family issue regarding kyle. But I’m here now. You have my full attention. Something’s going on. Tell me what it is. What’s wrong?

Diane: You’re headed back to italy tonight?

Kyle: That’s right.

Diane: Is it — is it something I did? I mean, I — I mean, I know i didn’t instantly win over the abbotts today, but I thought i at least held my own with their questioning.

Kyle: This isn’t about anything you did today or about my family.

Diane: Well, of course not. It’s about you. You’ve let me say my piece and now you’ve decided you want nothing to do with me. I get it. I — I’ve tried to emotionally prepare myself for this very real possibility, but, um…I’m not gonna lie, I’m — I’m really disappointed.

Kyle: Look, I’m not leaving for the reason you think.

Lauren: Thank you, my love.

Michael: Mm-hmm. Mwah!

Lauren: I cannot stop thinking about our drive through the south of france. That convertible, the wind in our hair, and stopping at all the cafés along the way. And that airbnb — I mean, how cute was that couple that ran it. That could be us, you know.

Michael: Uh-huh. You serious? You and me, running an inn?

Lauren: Well, if it’s us, it’s probably gonna be a winery, but…

Michael: Are you saying you want to retire in france?

Lauren: Could you see it?

Michael: Hmm.

Lauren: I mean, because I’m pretty sure when I close my eyes and think about my happy place, that’s it.

Michael: Oh, it was gorgeous.

Michael: You’re always such a charmer.

Michael: Mm-hmm. It was great. It was a great trip. I’m glad you insisted we go.

Lauren: Well, you deserved it. You needed the r&r, and so did I, after worrying about you so much for being in peru.

Michael: Well, I promise our next vacation won’t be a de-stressor after I’ve been thrown into a peruvian prison.

Lauren: Well, better not be.

[ Chuckles ] And there is one way to ensure that that won’t happen. And that’s rethinking working for victor.

Faith: You look nice, mom.

Sharon: Thank you.

Nick: You look beautiful.

Sharon: Thank you.

Nick: Are we waiting for tessa and mariah?

Sharon: They should be here any minute.

Nick: Good. I talked to abby. She and chance are gonna meet us at the church.

Sharon: Chance told me that the gcpd will have their own memorial service for rey later. The guys he worked with, they really loved him.

Noah: I put together a slide show of photos. I thought maybe we can project them on the wall during the service.

Sharon: That’s a wonderful idea, noah. Thank you.

Mariah: Hey, everybody. We brought food for afterwards.

Sharon: I’m just so grateful that you could all be here today. I guess we should get going.

[ Knock on door ]

Nick: Are you expecting someone else?

Sharon: No. And tonight’s winning number, 43

Chelsea: Um, I apologize if this is awkward. I heard you were having a memorial for rey. I didn’t mean to intrude, I just realized this might be my only opportunity to pay my respects. But if it’s only family, i totally understand. You say the word and I’ll go. I just thought it might be nice to be able to, um, say goodbye with all of you.

Mariah: Yeah, I’m so sorry, chelsea, but it’s — it’s just the kids and rey’s partner. It’s supposed to be a small and intimate thing.

Sharon: Well, hold on. It was supposed to be small and personal, but you’re welcome to join us. I know what close friends you and rey had become. I hope that no part of you blames yourself for his death. Did you hear that he had a heart attack?

Chelsea: I did.

Sharon: So then you know he didn’t die because he was out on the road getting those tickets. No one’s to blame. It was no one’s fault.

Chelsea: Thank you for saying that.

Sharon: It feels right that you’re here. Rey would’ve wanted it like this. We’re actually on our way to the church now. You can drive over with us.

Chelsea: Thank you. I appreciate the opportunity to celebrate such a wonderful man.

Michael: I know how you feel about my relationship with victor. You don’t like my work husband.

Lauren: Alright, I never said that I didn’t like him.

Michael: [ Laughs ]

Lauren: Oh, and stop mocking my feelings.

Michael: I’m not. I’m not. He did lend us a private jet to go to france. I mean, does that score him any points?

Lauren: Well, that is the least that he could do.

Michael: No, look, I think my work will be much less stressful now that ashland locke has been purged from the company and that his marriage to victoria’s being annulled. Hopefully, he’s out of our lives for good. Things should be quieter.

Lauren: I’ll be glad when we are rid of ashland, but I don’t think things will ever be quieter with the newmans. But you know what would be more peaceful? The south of france. Wine in the afternoon, long nights in bed together, sleeping in as long as we want. Now, that — that could be our lives.

Michael: The only way that could be our lives is if you retired too. Are you willing to do the thing you’re asking me to do? Would you walk away from fenmore’s?

Allie: Oh, my god, I — I am so embarrassed. I-I-I don’t usually lose control like that. Seriously, I am not the weepy type.

Jack: It is so much healthier to express your feelings than keep them bottled up.

Allie: Yeah, but it’s just not something I do — crying in front of someone that I haven’t known for very long.

Jack: Look, maybe we haven’t known each other that long, but I’m not just anybody. I’m not a stranger. I’m your grandfather. And I have a feeling that something’s really on your mind that you’ve come a very long way to genoa city, maybe — maybe to talk about it. I just want you to know you always have a soft spot to land here. I made a lot of mistakes with your father. I don’t want to repeat those mistakes.

Allie: You’re right. I came here because I could use someone to talk to. Something did happen. I’m steve.

Diane: Thank you for coming upstairs. I — I didn’t think this was a conversation we should have in a hotel lobby, for various reasons.

Kyle: I couldn’t agree more.

Diane: [ Sighs ] So why are you headed back to italy tonight?

Kyle: I want to get back to my wife. This has been a lot, and i really miss summer. I need her insight and advice about everything.

Diane: So I take it this means you still haven’t decided whether you want me in your life.

Kyle: I’m still wrestling with what to think and how to move forward. My family has weighed in. Now I need to hear what summer thinks.

Diane: Well, of course, of course, you should talk to her. I — I’m just kind of curious, though — what did the abbotts say about me after I left? I’m thinking it wasn’t pretty.

Kyle: It’s not really my place to share their opinions about you after the fact.

Diane: Fair enough. So I guess there’s just one more question. What can I do to get another chance with you?

Allie: It’s about my mother.

Jack: You once told me things were a bit tense between you two.

Allie: “Tense” is an understatement. She came to la pretty soon after you and phyllis went back to genoa city.

Jack: Well, that could be her way of reaching out.

Allie: Yeah, I was hoping that was the case. But, no, she didn’t come to california to come see me. No, it was all about legal papers that she had to sign related to dad’s estate.

Jack: I’m sorry.

Allie: You know, I would have loved to talk to her about you, about dad’s whole other side of the family. I would have also loved to just know if she knew more about how dad felt about things.

Jack: And she just wasn’t ready to talk about that.

Allie: I never even got the chance to ask. I was really hoping that this visit would start to bridge the gap between us. You know, I was searching for the smallest connection, any connection, to my mom. But there was nothing left to bridge. That was clear. She came to la by herself, stayed in a hotel for one night. She signed the papers and left at the crack of dawn the next morning.

Jack: As a parent, I find that unconscionable.

Allie: You know, honestly, it would’ve been better if I just didn’t see her at all. Because seeing her like that, it just — it just ripped the wound right open. The lack of a relationship with my mom just makes me feel the loss of my dad even more. He was all I had. Sorry. Now he’s gone.

Jack: It’s hard to come to terms with the loss of a parent.

Allie: I was feeling so empty…and lonely. And I just…I felt compelled, without really even thinking it through, to just get on a flight and come see you.

[ Sobbing ]

Lauren: You know, comparing my job to yours is disingenuous. I could probably work remotely, and victor would never tolerate that from you. You chose to retire from the da’s office, and then you chose to work for victor, which landed you in a prison cell in south america.

Michael: Ashland locke landed me in a prison in south america.

Lauren: Yes, but victor is the one that got you into ashland’s crosshairs to begin with. Look, I really don’t want to argue about this, but I do want to ask you a question. What kind of hold does victor have on you where you consistently defend him, no matter what?

Michael: I feel no need to defend my position. I helped victor expose a treacherous snake. Who knows what locke was planning to do to victoria if he had gotten his hands on that company? I helped put a stop to that.

Lauren: You’re right, and that is a good thing. But that is not the point.

Michael: The point is that we could take a cruise around the world, visit every place we’ve ever dreamed of. We could move to saint-tropez. But I doubt highly you’d be able to run fenmore’s from there. Not the way you’re used to or would want to. The only way we could truly live a stress-free life is if you were as free as you’re asking me to be. Could you actually step back enough to let the — the — the well-oiled machine that is fenmore’s be run by someone else?

[ Chuckles ] You just gave me your answer. It’s a big, fat no.

Lauren: [ Sighs ] After years on the battlefield

Michael: I’m not upset at you for not wanting to retire. On the contrary, I love how passionate you are about your work. Your drive is one of the sexiest things about you. I just wish there was a way that —

Lauren: I could love your working relationship with victor?

Michael: [ Chuckles ]

Lauren: Even though it literally went south?

Michael: That’s the nature of the beast, the fun in the game. The proof in the pudding.

Lauren: Oh, my god, the clichéS. Okay, point taken.

Michael: I’m gonna make you a promise. We’re gonna hit every exotic destination on our wish list, and if you want to end up in the south of france, that’s where we’ll finish. But not quite yet, because we’re still in our prime, baby.

Lauren: Are we?

Michael: You don’t agree?

Lauren: Oh, I do.

Michael: [ Chuckles ] So I suggest that we continue to thrive in our respective careers. And…live our lives to the fullest. And then, when it’s time for us to walk off into the sunset, we’ll know it. And we’ll go hand-in-hand. What an adventure that will be.

Lauren: [ Chuckles ] Okay. Good point. But there is the difference between our careers. Running a successful chain of department stores isn’t dangerous. It’s relatively safe. No one is gonna put me behind bars because I declare pink the color of the season.

Michael: Oh, so bright.

Lauren: But it was muted.

Michael: Alright. True.

[ Sighs ] But like I said, I am convinced that things with victor are going to settle down.

Lauren: Mm. I find that very hard to believe.

Michael: Time will tell. And if it becomes an issue, we will revisit this, okay?

Lauren: Okay.

Michael: Good.

Lauren: I am gonna go back to work.

Michael: Aww.

Lauren: But I would like you to compare and contrast something for me — our wonderful trip in the south of france to the delightful time you spent behind bars in peru. I love you.

Mariah: Are abby and chance coming?

Tessa: Chance had to go back to work, and abby went to take care of dominic.

Noah: Dad.

Nick: Thanks.

Noah: Mom?

Sharon: Thank you.

Faith: Chelsea?

Chelsea: Oh, no, thank you. I — I don’t think I could eat or drink anything right now.

Sharon: Well, I would just like to thank everybody for coming today. Tessa, the song you sang at the church was really beautiful. And, noah, that photo montage, that was really moving. Chance just gave such a lovely eulogy. I’ll always remember it. The memorial was really special and cathartic. The kind of farewell that rey would be proud of.

Diane: What else can I do to prove myself to you? Because I — I am willing to do whatever it takes. You can line up the abbotts again. I’ll take their grilling. You can bring on the newmans, and I’ll do my best to answer their questions and absorb their anger. I — I want to do whatever is necessary to show you that I’m worthy of another chance.

Kyle: Then what?

Diane: What do you mean?

Kyle: I’m just not sure there’s one thing you can do to make everything okay.

Diane: I thought we could just open the door as a starting point, and then — and then take it from there.

Kyle: That’s the thing, it’s a very dangerous door for me to open, because once I do, it’s very hard for me to close. I have to be sure it’s the right thing for me to do. It’s something I have to decide with my gut.

Diane: Are you saying you need more time or are you saying you can’t risk letting me into your life again?

Kyle: There’s still a chance. I haven’t given up on you, but i have to understand if that’s because I’m still hurting from all the years of missing you, of living without you. Look, I need to know if it’s just a void I’m trying to fill that your death created. I also have to think about how this choice affects summer and harrison.

Diane: Harrison, my grandson.

Kyle: That little boy has already been through so much upheaval in his life. I refuse to put him through any more.

Diane: I’m really proud of the father you’ve become.

Kyle: I will always put my son first.

Diane: Yeah, I — I tried to do the same, but in the end, I — I fell short. Well, I guess if you’re leaving genoa city for now, I — i should probably head back to los angeles.

Kyle: That’s up to you. Whether you want to go back to your new life or maybe mend other fences here. Everyone remembers the moment they heard…

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Even though some

things are far away,

Nick: You know, rey was determined to turn me into a soccer fan. He thought that if I just kept watching games, that eventually I’d get into it.

Noah: Did you?

Nick: No way, man.

[ Laughter ] I’m an american football guy. We’d get into these little arguments about whose sport was more boring than the other. We just liked hanging out, you know, so we watched a lot of games. He’d get pretty annoyed, though, when I just kept yelling “goal!”

Faith: Because it’s annoying.

Nick: It was funny.

Mariah: I’m pretty sure it wasn’T.

Noah: He was always so easy to be around. Low-key, cool. He never really treated me like I was his wife’s son. It was more like a — more like a buddy. Actually, I remember this one time, I had a date that had went well, and the next morning i walked into the coffee and I had mis-buttoned my shirt. And rey’s just sitting there with a big old smirk on his face, and luckily he pointed it out before anyone noticed — mom, in particular.

Sharon: Wait, wait a minute. Who was this? Did I meet her?

Mariah: No.

Noah: Uh, no, probably not.

Mariah: There’s no way.

[ Laughter ]

Faith: I hope rey understood just how much of a part of the family he was.

Sharon: Everyone’s shared memories of him today prove that. Chelsea, did you want to share anything?

Chelsea: Uh…well, he was — he was just really wonderful with connor. As you know, and, um… I really appreciated that. Uh… sorry, I don’T…

Tessa: I still can’t believe how much work he was doing behind the scenes to help my sister. And now I’m never gonna be able to thank him for that.

Mariah: It makes me wonder how many people he helped that we’ll never know about.

Sharon: I actually have received a lot of e-mails and notes from people that rey has helped in the past. Some were things that he had mentioned to me, but, you know, he downplayed. And then there were other stories that I — I had never heard, because rey wasn’t a grand-stander. He — he wasn’t in it for the thanks. He was a real hero.

Allie: Thanks.

Jack: I am so sorry that happened with your mother. Relationships between parents and their child are powerful and sometimes painful.

Allie: Yeah. I am only now starting to feel the full weight of the pain.

Jack: I’m sure there’s a lot more to this story between you and your mother. I’m not going to pressure you to share anything more than you’re comfortable with. Right now, I — I just want to say how — how happy, how proud, how grateful I am that you came to me. I want you to think of this house as your home. And I promise, you are always welcome here.

Allie: Thank you, jack.

Diane: Is there someone specific you’d like me to make amends to? Because there’s plenty to choose from. Unfortunately, I left a long list of people I’d wronged.

Kyle: I wasn’t thinking of anyone in particular. It’s not for me to say, and i hope you didn’t take what I said the wrong way. I’m not throwing out that there’s some requirement to my forgiveness.

Diane: Okay. I’ll take it as it was intended.

Kyle: Well, I guess I’ll be in touch in a few days.

Diane: Please, I’m looking forward to that.

Kyle: Bye.

Diane: Kyle, um…before you go, would it be possible for me to give you a hug? Or — or if that’s too much to ask, I understand.

[ Sighs ]

Noah: Mom, I’ll take you to the airport, unless, of course, you want me to travel with you. I’m sure dad’ll give me the time off work.

Sharon: No, you — you shouldn’t do that, but thank you. Your work’s important.

Chelsea: Where are you going?

Sharon: I am taking rey to miami so he can be buried there and be close to his family. That’s what his mother wanted.

Mariah: Mom, why don’t I go with you?

Sharon: You should stay here with tessa and focus on the wedding.

Tessa: No, no, I can take care of everything while you two are gone.

Sharon: You know, I’m really not going to be gone very long. I want to get back here so that I can help you two with the preparations.

Nick: Well, I told you before, I’d go with you if you want.

Sharon: It’s really not necessary. And besides, you might have to deal with diane. Please, everyone, know that i appreciate your offers to accompany me, but this is gonna be the last trip that I ever take with rey. The long goodbye. So I — I’d just prefer that it was just the two of us. I hope you understand.

Mariah: We do.

Faith: Whatever you want, mom.

Sharon: Well, the service made me kind of tired, so i think I’m gonna lay down for a little while. But I just want to thank all of you again for your support. I want you to know how much i love you all.

Mariah: Right back at you.

Nick: I’m glad we did this, sharon.

Sharon: Me too. This was just what I needed.

Kyle: I guess I missed the rest of your welcome reception.

Allie: Oh, that’s okay. I showed up here without any warning, and I definitely wasn’t expecting to meet all the abbotts anyway. By the way, kyle, I just want you to know that I had no idea that taylor — diane — was your mom. Seriously, I thought it was a random person buying a house.

Kyle: I know.

Jack: We all know that it’s diane’s machinations that set this whole thing in motion. Why don’t we leave her behind for the night? Allie and I were about to head to society for some dinner. Care to join us?

Kyle: I appreciate the offer, but I don’t think that’s gonna be possible.

Michael: Drew. No.

Diane: Yes, it’s me.

Michael: But —

Diane: I’m back.

Michael: How?

Diane: [ Chuckles ] The same way so many people come back to genoa city.

Michael: [ Sighs ] You were dead.

Diane: And now I’m not. It’s a blessing and a curse. I’ve come back a changed woman, but no one will believe me.

Michael: Did you actually think anyone would?

Diane: Well, I knew they’d be angry, but I guess since I’ve been living with the new me for a while, I thought other people might accept her, too.

Michael: Because people here are super forgiving.

Diane: Hmm. So go ahead, give me your worst. I can take it. In fact, you’re late to the party because I’m kind of used to it. I have already been put through the emotional wringer. I’ve spent days explaining myself to people who don’t believe a word out of my mouth, and I am mentally and physically exhausted. So bring it on. Just get it out of your system. Call me evil incarnate or a crazy bitch, anything else you can think of.

Michael: Are you sure? Because I have a pretty good imagination.

Diane: [ Chuckles ] So do I. Which is probably why I thought it was possible to come back here for a fresh start, which I’m realizing is increasingly unlikely, so come on, michael. Can we just get to the part where you hurl one last searing insult at me and storm off? And then I can finish my drink in peace.

Michael: Well, actually… it’s pretty good to see you. (Christine) when you hear the words oral cancer,

Tessa: Well, it was nice spending time with everyone today.

Mariah: Yeah. I think my mom knew that we would all want to be together, and I know the service took a lot out of her, but…I think she’s gonna be okay. I’m a little less worried about her now.

Tessa: Yeah, she seems to be holding it together.

Mariah: And it makes me feel less guilty about going ahead with the wedding planning.

Tessa: I mean, she seems really excited about helping us plan it, and it gives her something to focus on.

Mariah: Yeah. I’ve been excited about planning it, too.

Tessa: Who would’ve thought?

[ Chuckles ]

Mariah: It’s nice to have something to look forward to, you know?

Tessa: I can’t wait to be your wife.

Mariah: I can’t wait to be yours.

Chelsea: You were so good to my son, rey. But that’s not all I wanted to say. You were good to me, too. So kind, so generous. I really cared about you, more than you probably knew. What we shared was genuine. It was a bond, it was a feeling. It was a feeling.

[ Sighs ] And it was stronger than friendship. I feel guilty saying that, but it’s true. Who knows if it would’ve developed into anything more. I would’ve felt bad about that, too, because sharon — sharon is a good woman. She loved you. She truly loved you. And I’ve already put her through a lot of pain.

[ Exhales sharply ] None of that matters anymore. None of it matters because you’re gone. And I can’t help it — I feel angry and I feel sad over what i lost. A potential future with a man i could’ve loved. Once again, my happiness just ripped away.

[ Sniffles ] When is it gonna end? When do I get to win?

Kyle: Allie, I would love to get to know you better, but it’s going to have to be a different time. Right now, I need to get harrison ready and start packing, because we’re gonna fly back to milan tonight.

Jack: Wait, did something happen with diane after I left the hotel?

Kyle: No, we had a pleasant, civil conversation. I didn’t make any big decisions. I just need to get home, see summer, talk things out with her. And I’m going to take your advice not to rush things.

Jack: Good. I hate to think of you and harrison leaving so soon. It feels like you just got here.

Kyle: I promise we’ll make a visit to see grandpa jack soon.

Jack: Well, hopefully next time under less dramatic circumstances.

Kyle: I can commit to a future visit, but when it comes to the drama, I can’t make any promises.

Diane: You’re glad to see me? Is this some sort of michael baldwin misdirect? You’re happy because you want to see me finally suffer for my crimes or because genoa city needs a new punching bag?

Michael: At least you have two kidneys.

Diane: [ Chuckles ]

Michael: [ Sighs ] I am genuinely glad that you are not dead.

Diane: I don’t know whether or not to believe you.

Michael: Shouldn’t the new, improved, not-dead diane just be a smidge more trusting?

Diane: You’re right. I’m going to take a win where i can get one. Cheers.

Young & The Restless Update

Recap written by Christine

Sally and Victoria were at Society. Victoria hoped Sally didn’t take it personally, but she wasn’t in the mood for conversation. Sally understood that Victoria would need time to unwind after suffering one blow after another. Sally admired Victoria’s tenacity and found her strength and resilience inspiring. Victoria appreciated the compliment, and she didn’t expect it. She imagined Sally and Adam were disappointed that she and Adam lost their temporary titles when Victoria took over the reigns at Newman again. Sally said she was satisfied with being COO of Newman Media, and she and Adam were excited about their plans going forward. Victoria recalled Adam saying something similar earlier. Sally said the only one who lost was Ashland.

Victoria said Ashland was several hundreds of millions of dollars richer, thanks to Adam. Sally doubted the money made him any happier, since he gave half of it away. Victoria asked how Sally knew about that. Sally explained that she overheard Ashland talking to Nick. After Ashland made the transfer, he didn’t look happy. Sally said Ashland had a brief conversation with Adam afterward, and it was obvious to her that Ashland was broken up over losing Victoria. Victoria said that either Sally misread the situation, or Ashland was playing her and Adam, the way Billy did when he pretended to be falling apart. Sally said Ashland couldn’t fool her. Victoria tensed. “Not that I’m a better judge of character than you,” Sally hastily added. Sally said she’d been where Ashland was, so she could read him. Victoria wanted to hear more, so she invited Sally to sit.

Sally revealed that she too, pretended to be terminally ill to win someone’s love. Victoria didn’t realize there were two people on the planet who could stoop so low. Victoria understood why Adam liked Sally so much – they were two of a kind. Sally knew that wasn’t a compliment but she decided to take it as one. Victoria asked if Sally scammed some poor man into marriage. Sally said it didn’t get that far, and now Wyatt was so hurt, he cut her out of his life completely, just like Victoria was doing with Ashland. Sally knew Ashland’s pain and shame were real, because she’d been there. She never had the option of paying half a billion dollars for redemption, but if she did, she would’ve, because that was how horrible it felt to know you hit rock bottom and hurt the one person you loved more than anything. Victoria looked uncomfortable. Sally said she kind of felt sorry for Ashland.

Victoria said Sally’s sympathy was misplaced, and she was projecting. Victoria said Sally was trying to hold onto someone she loved, while Ashland was just using Victoria to get what he really wanted, which was full control of Newman Locke. Sally said Ashland lost all hope of gaining that, and he was still here, so he may have realized there was something more important than that. Victoria said Ashland hated to lose, and he enjoyed manipulating people, so she didn’t care what his intentions were. Sally said Victoria had every right to feel that way. Sally was at the wedding, and she saw Ashland make this amazing declaration of love, so it was hard for her to believe at least some of that wasn’t genuine. She said it didn’t matter though, because it was too late. She guessed Ashland should move on, like she did, and try to do better with the next woman in his life. Victoria agreed. Sally knew what she had with Adam was healthy and strong because she learned from her mistakes. Sally didn’t think it was fair that some other woman would benefit from all the time Victoria spent teaching Ashland how to be another man. She said Ashland would probably be haunted by the way he treated Victoria for the rest of his life, but he had no one to blame but himself. Sally hoped things got better for Victoria, and she left.

Victor and Michael met at The Grand Phoenix. Michael wanted to make sure Victor knew Diane was back. Victor wanted Diane to leave, and he said he was going to make sure she knew that everyone in the town wasn’t going to let bygones be bygones. Victor wanted to talk business, but Michael shifted gears and said Lauren had stepped up her efforts to get him to quit his job. “What the hell does this have to do with your wife? You’re my lawyer. Do I need to hire someone else?,” Victor said. Michael said no, so Victor changed the subject back to business. Victor said Ashland was still in town, and Victor wanted Michael to get rid of that SOB, permanently.

Michael wanted to know exactly what Victor had in mind. Victor assured Michael that his life wouldn’t be at risk. Victor wouldn’t stand for Ashland making Victoria’s life hell. Michael asked if Ashland did anything they could take to a judge. Victor said Ashland was just hovering and trying to impress Victoria with his undying love. Michael asked if Ashland was sincere. Victor’s point was that Ashland was becoming frustrated – Victoria was being cold to Ashland, and once he realized his tactics weren’t working, he gave half of his buyout to New Hope in Rey’s name. Victor said that of course Ashland’s tactics weren’t working.

Victor said Victoria had finally wised up, and she knew she couldn’t trust a word that came out of that SOB’s mouth. Michael knew that must be painful for Victoria. He wondered if Victoria was tempted to believe her love redeemed Ashland. Victor said no – Ashland fooled Victoria once, but he wouldn’t fool her again. Ashland wasn’t used to losing. Victor was worried about what Ashland would do in the face of Victoria’s continual rejection. Victor wanted to come up with a plan to protect Victoria.

Nikki went to Crimson Lights, and Ashland was there. She asked if he was lying in wait, hoping Victoria would come by again. He assumed Victoria told her that they spoke earlier about his donation to New Hope. He was gratified that Victoria didn’t object. Nikki thought Ashland also found it gratifying to see how much it hurt Victoria to see him. He said he didn’t want to hurt Victoria – every move he was making now was to ease her pain. Nikki said all Ashland did was lie. She told him that if he loved Victoria, he should leave her alone.

Ashland followed Nikki over to the condiment bar to continue the conversation. He didn’t want to upset her, but he couldn’t leave things the way they just did. He hated to think she was telling Victoria he never cared for her, because nothing could be further from the truth. Nikki was tired of hearing Ashland saying this. He admitted it was cruel to deceive Victoria, but he said he eventually realized what a treasure his wife was. He was trying to help Victoria understand that and maybe win her forgiveness. Nikki thought that would be even more cruel than what Ashland had already done. She said he was toxic, a narcissist incapable of putting people’s needs ahead of his own. She thought everything was a game to him – just another move on a chessboard. Her daughter deserved better. Victoria walked in and asked what was going on.

Nikki said she was telling Ashland what she thought of him and how selfish he was to keep inflicting himself on Victoria. Ashland apologized and said he should’ve realized that a mother as protective as Nikki wouldn’t want to her his apology, no matter how heartfelt. Nikki scoffed. Victoria said it wasn’t worth getting into it with Ashland. She didn’t care what Ashland did or where he went. Victoria continued to the counter to place an order. Nikki said she didn’t share her daughter’s indifference. Nikki said she and Victor didn’t go after Ashland before because it had been more important to get Victoria out of the marriage, but now they’d done that. Nikki said that if Ashland didn’t stay away from Victoria, Nikki and Victor would come up with their own way of solving the problem.

Victoria and Nikki went back to work. Victoria was tired, and Nikki suggested they go away to a European spa. Victoria thought Nikki wanted to get her away from Ashland. “Ashland who?,” Nikki replied. Victoria said they had too much to do right now, like officially changing the name of the company etc. Nikki understood that, but she thought Victoria needed a break, since she hadn’t had any downtime since she found out what Ashland was up to. Victoria appreciated the concern, but she wasn’t on the verge of a nervous breakdown – she was going to get through this.

Sally noticed Ashland drowning his sorrows at the Society bar. She went over and told him that Victoria had been sitting on that same stool earlier and in that same mood, only she’d hidden it a little better. Ashland asked if Sally found it entertaining. She said she found it sad – two people who missed each other – one too proud to admit it and one too proud to keep up the fight. He asked why she cared. She said she was a sucker for romance. She left. He looked pensive.

At the cottage, Sharon made some phone calls regarding deliveries for the wedding. Faith came home with the dry cleaning, and she tried to keep Sharon from seeing it. Sharon saw what Faith was hiding – a shirt Sharon had purchased for Rey when they honeymooned in Miami. Faith was sorry. She knew Sharon wanted to focus on the wedding today. When Sharon said that, she didn’t mean she didn’t want to talk about Rey at all. Rey was on Sharon’s mind all the time. That was true for Faith, too. According to Faith, the dry cleaner mentioned that Rey never picked up the shirt, and she’d asked Faith to say hi to him for her. Faith tearfully stated that she didn’t know what to say when she realized the woman hadn’t heard Rey died. It didn’t seem real. Every time the door opened, Faith thought Rey would be coming home. Sharon felt like that too. Faith said Rey had been there for them through all the scariest moments – like Sharon’s cancer, Faith’s transplant and Mariah’s kidnapping, and now that they were okay, he didn’t get to be here for it. It was so messed up. Faith and Sharon hugged.

Faith apologized because she’d been trying to stay positive around Sharon. Sharon didn’t want Faith to hide her feelings. It helped Sharon that people saw how special Rey was and they missed him too. Sharon mentioned that an anonymous benefactor made a large donation in Rey’s name to New Hope. The money would go to provide affordable housing and to fund things for at risk kids – causes that were important to Rey. Sharon said it was a beautiful way to make sure Rey’s kindness and compassion were never forgotten.

Tessa and Mariah were at home. It was still the day before the wedding. Mariah was on edge, expecting something to go wrong. Tessa brightly said she’d been the worrywart earlier, and now they’d switched places. Mariah asked how Tessa stopped worrying. Tessa just decided to be optimistic. That made Mariah even more worried that things would be jinxed. Tessa said that the wedding coming together had nothing to do with luck and everything to do with Mariah’s family coming through for them. Mariah said that her mom needed something happy and joyous in her life right now. Tessa was glad her and Mariah’s love could give Sharon that. There was a knock on the door, and Mariah worried there was something about to go wrong. It was Crystal, here to surprise her sister. Tessa and Crystal hugged.

If Tessa had known Crystal was flying in tonight, she would’ve met her at the airport with balloons and a maid of honor tiara. Crystal knew Tessa would be frantic with all that last minute stuff, so she found her own ride. Mariah and Crystal hugged, and Mariah commented that Crystal looked confident and strong, like a whole new person. Crystal said she’d grown up a lot in the time she was gone. She missed Tessa like crazy. Crystal was glad she got to be here for the big day. Tessa said that it was all Rey’s doing. Crystal asked how Sharon was. Tessa and Mariah talked while Crystal was in the shower. Mariah was going over to the cottage the night before the wedding. They were gleeful because the next time they saw each other, they’d be walking down the aisle. They kissed.

Faith loved the gift bags Sharon made, and she said she saw where Noah got his artistic talents. Sharon said they weren’t perfect. Faith thought that was fine because they were handmade, not mass produced. Faith likened the bags to Tessa and Mariah’s relationship – they accepted each other as they were and didn’t hide their flaws. Mariah came to the cottage for the sleepover. Sharon asked if Mariah was superstitious that it’d be bad luck to see her bride before the ceremony. Mariah said maybe a little, but it was mainly that she and Tessa liked some of the old traditions. Mariah mentioned that Crystal was here – Rey gave them an incredible gift. Sharon said he was still there with them.

Faith asked what Mariah was looking forward to most tomorrow. Mariah was most looking forward to marrying the love of her life. Faith was looking forward to dancing. Sharon mentioned that Faith would have to be in line for the bouquet toss. Faith said she wasn’t going to go nuts trying to catch it because she didn’t want to freak Moses out. Sharon was looking forward to every part of the day. She’d missed out on so many important moments in Mariah’s life, and she wanted to soak this up.

Later, Sharon was downstairs alone twisting her wedding ring. Mariah came downstairs for some tea to help her sleep. Mariah said for so long she was watching people pairing up, starting families and building futures. That was all she wanted too, but she was afraid it would pass her by. Mariah apologized for her insensitivity – saying that when Sharon just lost the person she thought she’d spend the rest of her life with. Sharon said that no part of Mariah’s happiness hurt her. Sharon thought that when Mariah had kids, she’d understand. Sharon thought the love Mariah found with Tessa was amazing. It was everything Sharon wanted for Mariah, and she didn’t want her to feel guilty even for a second. They hugged, and Sharon smiled as she held her daughter and looked over her shoulder at the wedding photo of her and Rey.

Back at the apartment, Crystal looked at the “stunning” portrait Noah painted of Mariah and Tessa. Crystal said that Noah must be over how this all started. Tessa said it was awkward at first, but they moved on. Crystal asked how the relationship between Tessa and Sharon was now. Crystal recalled that Sharon had issues with Tessa. Tessa admitted Sharon had good reason to, but they’d moved on and grown close. Tessa said she and Sharon had to lean on each other when Mariah went missing, and Rey was so supportive. Crystal couldn’t believe she was finally out from under those charges, thanks to Rey, someone she never even met. Things were better than okay in Canada, but she’d gotten used to feeling like she’d never be safe. Now she could go wherever she wanted. She wished she had the chance to thank Rey. Tessa said Crystal would’ve loved Rey. Crystal thought the whole family sounded great, and now Tessa would be one of them.

Tessa thought it was pretty wild that she was about to join this big boisterous loving family. Especially after the way she and Crystal grew up – in a chaotic and unpredictable home. Tessa had been thinking a lot about it because she and Mariah were going to have kids. Tessa wondered if that was crazy. Crystal said Tessa had the biggest heart of anyone she knew, and she’d practically raised Crystal. Tessa said it was Mariah’s idea. It took awhile, then Tessa realized adoption was the best thing for them. Crystal thought it would be perfect for Tessa to give a loving home to a kid in a bad situation and save them from growing up the way she and Tessa did. Tessa said she and Mariah both had bad childhoods, and Mariah’s was even worse – she grew up in a literal cult.

Tessa said she and Mariah decided they needed to know they had what it took to be good spouses and parents. Crystal asked what made the difference. Tessa said she and Mariah just decided they weren’t going to let this relationship fail – they almost did many times, but they always found a way to come back to each other and make things right. Crystal thought Tessa was talking about trust. Crystal had never experienced that. Tessa said if it happened for her, it could definitely happen for Crystal. Crystal though they were getting way too deep, when tonight was supposed to be about fun. Crystal decided to do Tessa’s hair.

Recap written by Christine

Nick gave Sharon a ride home from the airport, and she got a big hug from Faith. Sharon was in good spirits after her trip to Miami for Rey’s memorial. Faith wished she’d gone with Sharon, but Sharon said that it was the right decision to go alone. Sharon would tell Faith all about the memorial later, but now she wanted to talk about the wedding, which was tomorrow. Faith and Nick exchanged a look. Sharon assured them that she was okay, and she said they had to turn their attention to the wedding. Nick wanted to talk to Sharon alone, so Faith went upstairs.

Sharon was bowled over when Nick told her that someone wanted to donate 250 million dollars to New Hope in Rey’s name. She asked who the donor was, and Nick said it was Ashland. He assured her the donation would be anonymous. He’d been struggling with this. He couldn’t stand that creep, and he knew Ashland was only doing it to get Victoria’s forgiveness. “Just take the money, Nick” Sharon quickly urged. She knew he hated Ashland, and she did too, but Rey would want to see something bad turned into something good. She thought this was poetic justice.

Mariah and Tessa were at home, and they were looking forward to their big day. They went through a mental checklist – everything was all set. Mariah said she had to practice saying their vows without dissolving into tears. Mariah panicked because she never confirmed with Kyle that he’d officiate the wedding. Tessa was sure Devon would do it. Mariah loved Devon, but she had her heart set on Kyle. Noah showed up, and then they all left for the Top of the Tower to see how he’d set things up for the wedding. Mariah, Tessa and Noah returned to the apartment. The couple was very impressed with what Noah had done to Top of the Tower. They said it Noah asked if they didn’t trust him to make something special. Mariah said of course they did, but this was beyond. Tessa asked how they could ever thank Noah. Noah joked that their undying gratitude was more than enough.

Kyle showed up wanting to talk, so Tessa and Noah went downstairs to Crimson Lights. Mariah knew Kyle had a lot on his plate, but she pleaded with him not to say he was going to disappoint her. He’d planned to go to Milan tonight. He really wanted to get back to Summer and talk to her about Diane. He’d been so distracted, he forgot about the wedding until he started packing. Mariah thought Kyle would miss the ceremony, and she was disappointed, but she understood. Kyle said he talked to Summer, and she convinced him to stay for the wedding. She’d cleared her schedule, and she was flying to Genoa City to support him with his mom. Excited, Mariah said that this meant Summer was coming to the wedding and that Kyle could officiate it.

Kyle wasn’t thinking clearly right now, so he wasn’t sure he was in the right head space to conduct a wedding ceremony. He was worried he’d mess up. Mariah appreciated Kyle’s candor. She said he could never do anything to disappoint her. He said he’d never intentionally do that, but… Mariah said no buts. She thought that tomorrow would be a perfect wait to clear his head of some of the turmoil he was in. she said he’d be launching them into this amazing journey of, bonding, family, motherhood… She apologized for saying motherhood, but he didn’t mind. He thought Mariah and Tessa would make amazing moms. She said that none of this would be possible without him. She’d never forget what he did for them – pushing them into that first date. She said it would be like the magical completion of the circle, and magic was way too rare to say no to. Kyle agreed to do it. He was honored to be asked, and he didn’t want the fact that he’d had to be pushed into it to make it seem like he wasn’t thrilled to be involved. He promised he’d get ordained and be ready for tomorrow. She said it would just be a few clicks on the internet, and they had a script for him. He said he might want to say a few words too, and she was fine with that. She added that she had his back while he was dealing with his mom.

Downstairs, Tessa wondered if Mariah would be able to get Kyle to officiate. Tessa was going to have her sister at the wedding, and she wanted Mariah to have everything she wanted. Noah commented on how Tessa and Mariah always wanted the best for each other. Tessa first knew she was falling in love when she wanted something for someone else more than she wanted anything for herself. He hoped this was the most extraordinary wedding ever. She said the Top of the Tower looked magical. She was glad they got past the awkwardness. He was glad too, and he gave her credit for being so open and honest with him and Mariah. He’d always love Tessa as a friend and as the woman who made his sister so happy. She said his friendship meant so much to her, and soon they’d be family.

Later, Sharon, Tessa, Faith and Noah came upstairs. Kyle was already gone. Everyone was concerned because Sharon was up and about instead of resting. She wanted them to stop worrying about her. She wondered if it’d help if she told them about Rey’s service. She said it was lovely, and it helped to have that time with Celeste, Lola, Arturo and their extended family and friends. Everyone at the Miami service understood why Sharon came alone, and they all had nice things to say about Rey. Mariah asked how Lola was. She was excited about the wedding and sorry she couldn’t be there. Sharon said no more sorrys and sadness – all that mattered was pulling off the perfect wedding for their beautiful brides – Rey would want nothing less. Tessa was excited when Mariah said Kyle would officiate. Faith suggested they give Sharon a job to do. They put her on gift bag assembly, and she was happy to do it. Sharon brought a basket of things for Tessa and Mariah to use to pamper themselves – face masks, tea, nail polish etc. they both appreciated it. Sharon wanted the brides-to-be to relax and accept that everything would be taken care of. The guests left to take care of the last minute issues. Mariah and Tessa marveled that tomorrow they’d be bonding their lives together forever.

Victoria approached Ashland at Crimson Lights. She said Nick told her about his offer to donate half his buyout to New Hope to be used for work done in Rey’s name. He was meeting with Nick later, to hear his decision, and he hoped Nick would take the money. Victoria agreed – that money could do a lot of good in the right hands. It pained him that she no longer thought of his hands as the right ones. She appreciated his generous gesture, but after everything he’d done, she was sure he could understand how hard it was for her to believe he didn’t have an ulterior motive.

Ashland didn’t blame Victoria for being suspicious. He said his motivation was guilt. He felt he had to pay back the wrong he did to her and to her family and for Rey’s death. He knew it was an accident, but none of them would’ve been on the road that night if not for the pain he caused Victoria. Victoria revealed that Rey died of a heart attack, and that was what caused the accident, so Ashland didn’t need to feel guilty, at least not about that. He thanked her for telling him that, when she could’ve just let him blame himself. She reasoned that he had enough to feel guilty about. She wondered if he’d want to withdraw his offer to Nick, but he said Rey was a good man who deserved to be honored.

Victoria went back to work. Nikki dropped into the office for the coffee Victoria was supposed to bring her from Crimson Lights. Victoria admitted she forgot to buy it, because she got distracted by Ashland. Victoria brought Nikki up to speed on her talk with Ashland. Nikki sensed Victoria was haunted by her feelings for Ashland. Victoria said she’d pushed her feelings for him away. Nikki suspected that Victoria had just pushed them down, not away, which would only make the emotional turmoil worse later. Nikki thought Victoria should deal with her feelings now before they ate her up inside.

Victoria admitted part of her still loved Ashland. That mortified her. The worst part was that she kept wondering what if Ashland was actually telling the truth for the first time in his life. What if falling in love with her changed him and he regretted what he’d done? Those questions made Victoria feel week and humiliated. Nikki thought it was perfectly reasonable for Victoria to feel that way. Nikki said Victor had to show her a lot of proof before she could believe Ashland had actually done all these things, because his love for Victoria seemed so sincere. Nikki said Ashland’s love for Victoria might be the only true thing about him, but if that was the case, was it worth complete forgiveness? Victoria said of course not – nothing could undo the wrong Ashland did to all of them. “What about saving your life?,” Nikki asked.

Ashland and Nick met at Society. Nick accepted the money on the condition that the donation remain anonymous. He said that if Ashland was truly doing this out of the goodness of whatever heart he claimed to have, and not to repair his disgraced reputation, that shouldn’t be a problem. Ashland always intended to keep the donation anonymous, so he was fine with the stipulation. Nick said this didn’t change how he felt about Ashland. Ashland wasn’t surprised. Nick knew Ashland was only doing this to make himself look better in Victoria’s eyes. Ashland said Nick was making assumptions. Nick thought that if Ashland truly loved Victoria, he’d leave forever and give Victoria a chance to rebuild her life. Ashland refused to leave town. He said Harrison was here, and he planned to spend as much time with him as possible. Ashland wasn’t going to hurt Victoria any more than he already had. He was focused on improving himself, and this donation was a small first step toward making amends. Nick didn’t buy it or trust Ashland. He and he family weren’t going to let Ashland maneuver his way back into Victoria’s life. Ashland stated that he wasn’t intimidated by Nick. He said that the Newmans already closed ranks around Victoria and tried to run him out of town, and it didn’t work. Nick said next time, they’d get more creative and more extreme.

Sally dropped into Adam’s office. She wanted to discuss the budget, unless he’d decided to leave the company. He decided he couldn’t walk away from his family or the chance at ever running Newman Enterprises. It frustrated him that Victor couldn’t see that Victoria didn’t deserve the position after everything that went on with Ashland, but he felt that if he quit, she would win. Adam wanted to be the sole CEO of Newman Enterprises. Sally recalled Adam saying he had that job before, and it didn’t stick, so she said failure wasn’t an option this time. She asked how she could help him pull this off. He had the perfect plan, and Ashland was the key.

Sally wanted details. Adam initially thought that getting Ashland out would make him a hero in his dad’s eyes. That didn’t happen, unfortunately. Adam said that even after everything Ashland did, Victoria still seemed conflicted. Sally thought that was understandable, since you couldn’t just turn off your feelings. Adam said Ashland saved Victoria’s life when he pulled her out of a burning car. He didn’t think Ashland orchestrated that, but he thought Ashland would use it to try and win Victoria back. Sally suggested that Ashland’s love for Victoria was real, since betraying someone and loving them weren’t mutually exclusive. Adam thought it was more about ego and being rejected than love. Regardless, if Ashland won Victoria’s love and trust, either he’d take her as far away from Victor and all things Newman as possible, or Victor would be so angry with Victoria for taking Ashland back that he’d question her ability to run the company. Then the door would be open for Adam. Sally said all this was predicated on Ashland winning Victoria back. Adam suggested he and Sally help reignite Ashland and Victoria’s romance.

Sally was intrigued by the plan, but she was worried because Victor would turn on Adam if he found out about the scheme, and there would be no coming back. Adam said they’d have to be subtle, and they certainly couldn’t collude with Ashland. Sally agreed, since they knew Ashland couldn’t be trusted. Adam said the genius of the plan was they didn’t have to do anything overt to pull this off, and no one would ever know it was them.

Sally and Adam went to Society, and took a table near the bar, which was where Nick and Ashland were sitting. Ashland wondered if this had something to do with Nick’s warning that the Newmans were going to get more extreme. Nick wanted to get moving on the donation. Ashland made a call and transferred the money to New Hope. Nick thanked Ashland for the donation and said at least one good thing would come out of his lies. Nick left. Adam overheard everything. Adam said Ashland’s donation was a clever power play, but it didn’t mean Victoria would take him back. Ashland said this was none of Adam’s damn business. Adam thought that was rude to say, since he was the reason Ashland had a half a billion dollars.

Ashland regretted taking the money, since it wasn’t worth giving up the woman he loved. Adam didn’t buy that, he noted that Ashland wasn’t upholding his end of the bargain. Ashland pointed out that he agreed to leave the company and have his marriage annulled. Ashland asked what the problem was. Adam said that the problem was that Victoria fell for Ashland and she didn’t drive him out of town after she found out what he’d done. He said it was like Victoria was still holding onto the fantasy of the guy she thought she fell in love with. Ashland left. Sally could tell Ashland was affected by the hint that Victoria still had feelings for him. Sally said the best part was the fact that Adam made it look like an insult. Adam was going to go plant another seed. He said he’d see Sally at the office.

Victoria and Nikki continued their discussion at Newman Enterprises, and they didn’t notice Adam walk in. Victoria said that she was still trying to figure out what it meant – Ashland rescuing her. They finally noticed Adam. He said he couldn’t get over the lack of gratitude for getting Ashland out of her life and out of the company. Victoria told Adam that he’d never thrive in business if he didn’t get past his continual need for positive reinforcement. He said he’d come to tell her that he wouldn’t fight her on not naming him co-CEO, and he wouldn’t try and get Victor to change his mind. He congratulated Nikki and said he looked forward to working with them both. He left. Nikki asked what the hell that was about. Victoria had no idea, but she could use a break from all things Newman. She left to get fresh air.

Victoria wasn’t using her cane anymore, but she still had a limp as she entered Society and took a seat at the bar. Sally made a beeline to her and asked how she was doing since the accident. Victoria said she was healing, then she turned away from Sally. Sally persevered and continued to try and strike up a conversation. Sally was impressed Victoria was back to work. Sally assumed Victoria was here to escape the office intrigue. She wanted to talk with Victoria and offered to buy her a drink.

Nick and Sharon met at her place, and he told her about taking the money, even though he hated being near Ashland. She thought he did the right thing. She couldn’t wait to go to the first ribbon cutting ceremony. She knew Rey would be smiling down at them. He asked what she was doing today. She told him about the gift bags she was going to make. Faith was out getting the supplies. Nick wanted to know how Sharon was really doing. Sharon said it was hard in Miami at first, seeing how deeply other people missed Rey. She bonded with Rey’s family over their grief. Lola was excited about the wedding. Arturo’s little boy was too young to understand why everyone was together; he just knew he was surrounded by people he loved. Sharon said that was a reminder that they had to celebrate all they had right now, because life went on. That was why she was putting all her energy into making sure Mariah and Tessa had an amazing day. He was proud of her and her strength. Sharon said she and Nick had been through hell more than once, and they always made it through – what other choice was there? She thought this wedding – this joyous life-affirming event couldn’t happen at a better time.

Young & The Restless Update

Recap written by Christine

Jack told the weeping Allie that he didn’t mean to upset her when he said the Abbotts were her family. She assured him he didn’t do anything wrong. She appreciated him saying that. She tried to say more, but she broke down sobbing. Jack had sensed from the moment Allie got here that something was weighing on her. He wouldn’t have left earlier if not for there being another family issue, with Kyle. He assured her he was here now, and she had his full attention. Allie was so embarrassed. She didn’t usually lose control and cry in front of someone she didn’t know that long. He said he wasn’t a stranger – he was her grandfather. He said she always had a soft spot to land here. He made a lot of mistakes with her father, and he didn’t want to repeat them. Allie said her mother came back to LA after Jack and Phyllis left. Allie had hoped her mom came to spend time with her, but that wasn’t the case. Her mother came to sign some legal papers related to Keemo’s estate. Allie wished she could’ve talked to her mom about the Abbotts, but she never got the chance.

Allie’s mom came to LA, got a hotel for one night, signed the papers and left at the crack of dawn the next day. As a parent, Jack found that unconscionable. Allie said it would’ve been better if she’d never seen her mother at all, because seeing her like that just ripped the wound open. The lack of relationship with her mom made her miss her dad even more. “He was all that I had and now he’s gone,” she cried. Jack knew the loss of a parent was hard. Allie had felt empty and lonely, and she’d felt compelled, without even thinking about it, to come see Jack. He pulled her close and she cried on his shoulder. Once Allie had composed herself, Jack offered some sympathetic thoughts about parent/child relationships. Jack was sure there was more to the story with Allie and her mom, and he wasn’t going to pressure her to say more. He was happy, proud and grateful she came to him. He wanted her to think of this as her home.

In The Grand Phoenix lobby, Diane just learned that Kyle was going back to Italy. She assumed that he’d decided he didn’t want anything to do with her. She took it well, but she was clearly disappointed. Kyle and Diane went upstairs to talk in private, where he explained he was leaving town because he wanted to be with his wife. He still hadn’t made a decision about Diane. He needed to hear what Summer thought. She was curious what the Abbotts said about her after she left. He said it wasn’t his place to repeat what his family said. She understood. She asked what she could do to get another chance with him.

Diane was willing to do whatever it took. She’d take another grilling from the Abbotts, and she’d face the Newmans too. She wanted to show him she was worthy of another chance. He wasn’t sure there was one thing to do to make everything okay. She thought they could just open the door and take it from there. He said it was a dangerous door for him to open, because once he did, it would be hard to close it. He had to decide what to do. He hadn’t given up on her, but he had to figure out if that was because he still had a void created by her death. He also had to think of how this would affect Summer and Harrison. Diane smiled and said that was her grandson. Kyle said Harrison had already been through so much upheaval, and he refused to put his son through more. Diane was proud of the father Kyle became. He said he’d always put his son first. Diane said she tried to do the same, but she fell short. She guessed that if he was leaving, she should probably go back to LA. He said that was up to her whether she wanted to go back to her new life or mend other fences in Genoa City. Diane asked if there was someone specific Kyle wanted her to make amends to. She admitted she’d wronged a lot of people. He wasn’t talking about anyone in particular – that wasn’t his place. He also wasn’t making that a requirement for his forgiveness. He said he’d be in touch in a few days. He turned to go, but she asked if she could have a hug. They both had tears in their eyes. He nodded, and they embraced.

Kyle went back to the Abbott house. Allie told him she had no idea that Taylor – Diane was his mom. She thought Diane was just a random person buying her dad’s house. Kyle knew. Jack said they all knew that it was Diane’s machinations that put it all in motion. Jack invited Kyle to join him and Allie at Society. Kyle appreciated that, but he didn’t think it was possible. He’d love to get to know Allie better, but he was going to be taking Harrison home to Milan. Jack asked if something happened at the hotel. Kyle said he and Diane had a pleasant conversation. He just needed to get home to talk to Summer. Jack hated that Kyle and Harrison were leaving so soon. Kyle promised they’d come back soon. Jack hoped it wouldn’t be so dramatic next time. Kyle couldn’t promise that.

Lauren and Michael were at Society. They’d just returned from a vacation in France. They stayed at an airBnB run by a cute couple, and Lauren said that could be her and Michael some day. He asked if she wanted to run an inn. She thought running a winery would suit them better, but she did dream of retiring to France. She was hoping he’d rethink working for Victor, so they could ensure he didn’t end up with another experience like he had when he’d been thrown in a Peruvian prison. “You don’t like my work husband,” Michael said, laughing. Lauren never said she didn’t like Victor, and she wanted Michael to stop mocking her feelings. He said he wasn’t. He noted that Victor lent them a private jet to take to France. She thought that was the least Victor could do. Michael reasoned that his work would be less stressful now that Ashland had been purged from the company and his marriage to Victoria was being annulled. He hoped things would be quieter. She didn’t think things would ever be quieter with the Newmans. She fantasized about a life in the south of France. He said they could only have that life if she retired too. He asked if she was willing to do what she was asking of him and walk away from Fenmore’s.

Lauren thought Michael was being disingenuous. She said she could work remotely, which Victor would never tolerate. She said he chose to come out of retirement from the DA’s office and work for Victor, and he ended up in a prison cell. He blamed Ashland, but she maintained that Victor set it in motion. She asked what kind of hold Victor had on Michael that made him constantly defend him. Michael felt no need to defend his position. He said he helped Victor expose that treacherous snake. There was no telling what Ashland planned to do to Victoria if he got control of the company. “I help put a stop to that,” Michael stated. Lauren thought that was a good thing, but beside the point. Michael said that Lauren couldn’t run the company remotely while maintaining her high standards for it. He said the only way they could live a stress free life is if she let the company be run by someone else. She didn’t reply, and he said that meant her answer was no.

Michael wasn’t upset Lauren didn’t want to retire. He found her drive sexy. He just wished she could love his job. He promised they’d travel to every locale she wanted to, and eventually they’d retire somewhere, but not now while they were in their prime. She agreed that they were in their prime. He suggested that they continue to thrive in their respective careers, live their lives to the fullest, and when it was time, they’d walk off into the sunset hand-in-hand. She smiled and said he had a good point, but she added that her job was relatively safe. No one was going to put her behind bars because she declared pink the color of the season. He thought things with Victor would settle down, but if things became an issue, they’d revisit the topic. She wanted him to compare their wonderful trip to the time he spent behind bars.

Michael went to the Grand Phoenix bar, and unknowingly took the spot next to Diane. He saw her out of the corner of his eye, and she smiled. “No,” he said. “Yes. It’s me. I’m back,” she replied. Groaning, he noted that she was dead. “And now I’m not,” she replied. She said it was a blessing and a curse – she came back a changed woman, but no one would believe her. He asked if she ever thought anyone would. She’d hoped. She told him to give him her worst. She said she’d spent days explaining herself to people who didn’t believe her, and she was mentally and physically exhausted. She told him to go ahead and call her evil or a crazy bitch or whatever else he could think of. He warned her that he had a pretty good imagination. She’d thought it was possible to get a fresh start in Genoa City, but she was realizing that was increasingly unlikely. She told him to go ahead and insult her and storm off, so she could finish her drink in peace. He clarified that he actually thought it was pretty good to see her.

Diane wondered if Michael was happy to see her because he wanted to see her finally suffer for her crimes or because the town needed a new punching bag. “At least you have two kidneys,” he replied. He was genuinely glad she wasn’t dead. She wasn’t sure whether or not to believe him. He suggested that the new improved not-dead-Diane should be a smidge more trusting. She decided he was right. Phyllis exited the elevator and saw Diane and Michael clink glasses.

At the cottage, Sharon came downstairs in her black dress for the memorial service. Nick and Faith thought she looked beautiful. He’d talked to Chance and Abby, and they were going to meet them at the church. Chance had told Sharon that the GCPD was going to hold their own memorial service for Rey. Noah came downstairs and said he put together a slide show of photos for the service. Mariah and Tessa came in with food for after the service. Sharon was grateful everyone was here. Chelsea showed up. She’d heard about the memorial service, and she wanted to attend, but she understood if this was family only. Mariah gently explained that this was just for the family and Rey’s partner, but Sharon spoke up and said Chelsea could come. Sharon knew Chelsea and Rey were close friends, and she hoped Chelsea didn’t blame herself for his death. Sharon said Rey had a heart attack, and he didn’t die because he was on the road getting the tickets.

The service happened off screen. Everyone, minus Chance and Abby, returned to the cottage for refreshments. Chance had to work, and Abby went home to the baby. Chelsea declined the food, because she didn’t have an appetite. Sharon thanked everyone for coming. She loved the song Tessa sang and Noah’s photo montage. She’d always remember Chance’s lovely eulogy. She thought Rey would be proud of the memorial. Nick said Rey was determined to turn him into a soccer fan. He reminisced about their little arguments over whether soccer or American football was better.

Noah said Rey was easy to be around and treated him like a buddy, not his wife’s son. Noah said he went to the coffee shop after a date that went well, and Rey noticed Noah missed a button on his shirt. Noah was glad Rey pointed it out before Sharon or anyone else saw it. Sharon wondered who this woman that Noah was with. Faith hoped Rey knew what a part of the family he was. Sharon said everyone’s memories today proved that he did. Sharon asked if Chelsea wanted to share anything. Chelsea appreciated how wonderful Rey was with Connor. She got choked up and couldn’t say more.

Tessa appreciated Rey working behind the scenes to help her sister. She’d never be able to thank him. It made Mariah wonder how many people Rey helped that htey’d never know about. Sharon had received a lot of emails and notes from people Rey helped out. Some of the things Rey told her about, but he’d downplayed them, and other things she never heard about, because Rey wasn’t in it to get accolades.

Noah said he’d take Sharon to the airport, or fly with her if she wanted. She appreciated it, but she didn’t want him to take time off work. Chelsea asked where Sharon was going. Sharon said she was taking Rey to Miami, so he could be buried there, as his mother wanted. Mariah wanted to go to Miami too, but Sharon thought she should stay and work on the wedding. Nick also offered to go. Sharon said it wasn’t necessary, and he might have to deal with Diane. She appreciated everyone’s offers, but this was the last trip she’d ever take with Rey, and she’d prefer it if it was just the two of them. Everyone understood. Sharon was going to go rest before her trip to the airport. She thanked everyone again for their support and said she loved them all. This memorial was just what she needed.

Tessa and Mariah went home. Mariah thought Sharon was going to be okay, and she was a little less worried about her now. It made Mariah feel less guilty about going forward with the wedding planning. It was nice to have something to look forward to. They couldn’t wait to be each other’s wives. They kissed.

Chelsea went home to her suite. She said Rey was good to her son, and good to her too. So kind and generous. She thought that what they shared was a genuine bond that was stronger than friendship. She felt guilty saying that, but it was true. She wasn’t sure if it would’ve developed into something more. Chelsea would’ve felt bad if it had, since Sharon was a good woman who truly loved Rey, and Chelsea already put Sharon through a lot of pain. Chelsea said none of this mattered because Rey was gone. She felt angry and sad because she’d lost a potential future with a man that she could’ve loved. Once again, her happiness had been ripped away. She wondered when she’d get to win.

Sharon was in her living room by herself. She picked up a photo of herself and Rey, and she held it to her heart.

Nick: Don’t worry about it. Not gonna waste one more second thinking about him. There’s too much to do, so what’s left? What can I do to help?

Sharon: Um…well, I really want to keep this small and family-oriented, so I didn’t make any public announcement or anything. I just think if the event got too big, it would be difficult for me.

Nick: Well, I’m glad you’re being honest about what you need this day to mean to you. And I will do anything I can to ensure that your wishes are respected. But I’m really hoping there is one thing you’ll reconsider. (Dana)it’s very difficult for the family

Sharon: You want me to reconsider something about rey’s funeral?

Nick: Yeah. But not today’s service.

Sharon: What then?

Nick: Miami. I really think that you should take someone with you. You know, take one of the kids or I could go with you. I just don’t think you should be alone.

Sharon: Well, I appreciate that, but, um, I’m fine traveling by myself, and once the plane lands, I’m really not going to be alone. I’ll be with celeste and arturo, lola — all of rey’s family. They’re gonna be there with me. We’re gonna get each other through this. It won’t be easy, but I’m gonna be in good hands. You don’t have to worry about me.

Nick: Okay. If you change your mind or you get uncomfortable, then just say the word and I’ll get on that flight with you.

Sharon: I doubt I’ll change my mind.

Nick: Okay. Well, if while you’re down there, you decide you need me, then just call me. I’ll get on the first flight and get there as fast as I can.

Sharon: Thank you. It really means the world to me that you would do that.

Nick: Well, you know I mean it, 100%. I will do anything for you.

Sharon: Thank you so much, nick.

Lily: Yeah, I mean, this all sounds great, so I think we can run with a couple of these ideas and see what happens.

Nate: Thank you, lily.

Devon: Have we settled on how we want to launch the new company?

Lily: Well, I mean, I still think, you know, having a big party with a big media push is the way to go. I know that you were unenthusiastic about it, so have you changed your mind?

Devon: Yeah, I think I have. I think I’ve — I’ve come around to the idea. We’re gonna have a big party, it should be, you know, noisy and flashy and we should get as much attention as possible.

Lily: Wow, very unlike you.

Devon: Well, no, I understand what you mean by this being a big opportunity to show the world how important chancellor-winters is gonna be. So if we’re gonna compete with the big dogs, we need to go big. Right?

Nate: So we’re all in sync.

Lily: Yeah, look at that. It’s all coming together.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] Let’s hope we can agree on more important issues than “we should throw a party.”

[ Laughs ]

Lily: No, we will, we will. This is just the beginning.

Devon: Should billy be here for these discussions? ‘Cause he’s on the team, right?

Lily: He’s at an abbott family gathering, so I’ll fill him in later.

Devon: Was he okay during the last meeting we had?

Lily: Yeah, why?

Devon: He just seemed a little out of it.

Lily: What do you mean?

Devon: I don’t know, it was when you started talking about, like, legacies and families and chancellor-winters and just what it meant to us — he kind of checked out.

Nate: Yeah, I picked up on that, too. You think he’s uncomfortable being the non-family member at the top of a family company?

Allie: Well, it seems like you guys are going through a lot, and I — I really don’t want to add to any more distress.

Kyle: Allie, you being here means a lot to all of us, and I’m sorry, but we’re not gonna let you go. Whatever stress we’re dealing with right now, we’ll get through it. We just want you to feel welcome here.

Traci: I second that.

Allie: Thank you.

Abby: You’re not imposing. Please don’t think that.

Ashley: We were wondering when we would get to meet you.

Billy: And your timing is actually very efficient. You get to meet us all in one shot.

Abby: Although I’m sure that must be a bit overwhelming.

Allie: Yeah, yeah, it’s kind of a lot.

[ Laughter ] But, you know, you guys have all been so kind, and I really appreciate that.

Jack: Does that mean you’re staying?

Allie: Yes. Yes, I will.

Jack: Good! Okay, you can meet everybody. You’ve met kyle already. Let’s see, this is my sister ashley.

Allie: The chemist.

Ashley: That’s right.

Jack: My sister traci.

Allie: The writer.

Jack: This is my sister ashley’s daughter and my niece abby.

Allie: The restaurateur.

Jack: And this is my brother billy.

Allie: The —

Billy: Oh, you go ahead and say it — the good-looking one.

[ Laughter ]

Traci: Allie, we’re just so glad that you’re here. And on behalf of the whole family, we wanted to say how very sorry we were to hear about your father.

Allie: Thank you.

Ashley: I worked with keemo, and I got to know him quite well. What a talented, such a gifted chemist. And more importantly, what an amazing human being.

Allie: He was all of those things. And the best father I could’ve ever hoped for.

Billy: You know, allie, we’ve all gone through that kind of loss, so you have our condolences. Jack said that you were pretty tied up with your father’s estate and finishing up grad school. We weren’t sure when we were gonna be able to meet you. So what happened with your schedule that you were able to come out here to genoa city? Hi, I’m karen.

Lily: No, billy’s not uncomfortable working with us or in any situation. I mean, that’s his superpower.

Devon: I didn’t mean to make a big deal about it. It’s just something that i noticed.

Nate: Ditto.

Devon: Do you think that there’s any part of him that would rather be working with his family at jabot?

Lily: No, I mean, he left jabot because he was ready to get out of there, and he’s never looked back.

Devon: Okay. Yeah, I mean, you guys — you guys did some amazing work at chanccomm.

Lily: Yeah, we did. And look, I mean, you know, he’s excited about the merger. I know that. And maybe his name isn’t winters or chancellor or hamilton, but he’s 100% committed to the company.

Devon: That’s good to hear. And I’m not questioning his commitment at all. I just want to make sure that everything’s okay with him.

Lily: Yeah, everything’s fine.

Devon: Good.

Lily: So, um…are we good here?

Devon: Yeah, I think so. I think that’s it. I do have a meeting I need to get to, though.

Elena: Oh, hey.

Devon: Hey.

Lily: Hello.

Elena: So this is where the party’s at. You guys can just pretend I’m not here.

Nate: Well, that’s impossible. You’re the center of attention in any room you walk into.

Elena: Yeah? Even after a 12-hour shift at the hospital?

Nate: That’s when you’re the most gorgeous.

Lily: Well, that’s okay. We’re gonna leave so that you guys can keep talking about how gorgeous you both are.

Devon: I’ll walk you out.

Elena: Bye.

Devon: See ya.

Nate: Bye.

Elena: So? How did the meeting go? Did they like your idea?

Nate: Doesn’t even matter.

Elena: It doesn’t?

Nate: No, because all I care about is you right now.

Elena: [ Chuckles ]

Allie: Well, I’m not always the most spontaneous person, but jack told me the door was always open.

Jack: And I meant it.

Allie: And so I’ve been thinking a lot about your invitation. I had finished the semester. It was all really stressful. I had papers, finals, presentations, and so I just decided that I needed a break. And so I found a cheap flight, and, well, here I am.

Traci: Well, we’re so glad you got on that plane.

Allie: Thank you, traci.

Abby: You brought some luggage, so you must be planning on staying awhile. How long are you gonna be here?

Allie: Uh, well, at least overnight, and then I guess we’ll take it from there. Can anyone recommend a good hotel for me to go?

Traci: Oh, no, no, no, you have to stay here. We have so much room. And mrs. Martinez will take really good care of you.

Ashley: And we’re not always here like this at the same time. This is actually a rarity, so you’ll definitely have some privacy.

Allie: Thank you so much, but I really don’t want to impose on you guys.

Jack: No, you are not imposing. You are an abbott. This is the abbott house. You have to stay here.

Allie: That’s very generous of you. Thank you.

Traci: Good. Okay. Let’s get your things, and we’ll take you upstairs and find a room. And you can freshen up and I’ll show you around.

Allie: Thanks, traci.

Jack: Allie, I have to take off for a minute. I will be right back.

Allie: Okay.

Jack: One other thing.

Allie: Yes?

Jack: I’m real glad you’re here.

Allie: Thanks, jack.

Nick: Thank you.

Sharon: I just have a few things I need to wrap up here before I can leave town.

Nick: Okay, I’m just texting everyone, letting them know we’re gonna meet at the house before we go to the church.

Sharon: Okay, great. Thanks. I won’t be too long.

Nick: Okay.

Diane: Nick newman.

Nick: Sorry, hold on one second here. Alright, there —

Diane: Hello.

Nick: What is this? Who are you?

Diane: I can assure you I’m not a doppelganger and your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you.

Nick: Diane?

Diane: Yeah, it’s me.

Nick: No. No. No, no, no. It’s not — I mean, you’re —

Diane: Dead? Nope, I’m very much alive. And I’m back. I brought in ensure max protein,

Nick: This is impossible.

Diane: Oh, come on, stranger things have happened in genoa city.

Nick: What kind of game are you playing?

Diane: Relax, this has nothing to do with you.

Nick: Where have you been?

Diane: Um, I’ll give you the highlights. I wanted a fresh start, faked my death, moved to california, and now I am back and I want to make amends to my son.

Nick: [ Scoffs ] You devastated kyle. There’s no making amends for that.

Diane: I’m trying, nick. I know it’s going to be hard, but I’m not giving up.

Nick: What you did to your son, what you did to the entire abbott family —

Diane: I know, I just saw the whole family. It was not a warm and fuzzy reunion.

Nick: And that doesn’t include what you did to my family. My mother was charged with your murder — a murder that obviously didn’t happen.

Diane: Okay, okay. I mean, I’ve heard this from everyone since I got back. I was a terrible person. But I’ve changed.

Nick: You think anybody’s gonna believe that?

Diane: All that matters is that kyle believes it. I — I want a relationship with my son. We’ve had a couple of face-to-face meetings.

Nick: Kyle is in genoa city?

Diane: Yes, he’s here from italy. I’m sure he would’ve reached out, but, you know, he’s obviously been kind of busy. He had some things on his mind. I’m sure you understand.

Nick: I don’t understand any of this.

Diane: I told kyle that I am ready to prove that I am worthy of being his mother, of being in his life.

Nick: Oh, and how did he respond to that?

Diane: He’s considering it.

Nick: Well, if he was smart, he would stay as far away from you as possible. And, diane, let me tell you something, you’re gonna stay away from summer. Does she know about any of this?

Diane: I’m sure kyle has told her. Several people in town know, including your mother and father. I’m surprised they didn’t tell you.

Nick: Well, they know I have bigger issues going on right now, actual life-and-death issues, not just somebody who’s pretending to be dead.

Diane: Or maybe they’re hoping I’ll just leave quickly, never to be heard from again.

Nick: Well, if you were smart, that is exactly what you would do.

Diane: Is that a threat, nick?

Billy: [ Sighs ] Well, busy day at the abbott house.

Ashley: Mm-hmm.

Billy: First a woman who’s been dead for a handful of years shows up, and when she leaves, there’s a knock on the door and it’s jack’s long, lost granddaughter.

Ashley: I just hope kyle’s okay. He seems to have disappeared.

Billy: Yeah, I’m sure he needed some space from the crowd. I’m assuming that’s where jack went, because that’s the only reason he would leave with allie upstairs.

Abby: Well, aunt traci’s talking allie’s ear off. What a day.

Ashley: We were just saying that.

Abby: Yeah, it must be the universe’s way of balancing things out. Yes, everyone’s happy to meet allie, but first we had to endure the worst person in the world.

Ashley: I don’t think everybody feels diane is the worst person in the world.

Billy: Oh, are you talking about me?

Ashley: Yeah, because you told kyle he should give his mother the benefit of the doubt. What were you thinking?

Billy: I was thinking that, unlike you, I think people are capable of change.

Ashley: That’s not fair. I think people can change, and i understand why the concept is something close to your heart because of the great strides you’ve made in your own life. However, diane is in another league, billy, and I worry about kyle opening himself up to her.

Billy: Ashley, I think your heart’s in the right place and you’re entitled to your own opinion about diane, but her staying in town is up to one person only, and that is kyle. It’s not our decision.

Ashley: True, but kyle did ask for everybody’s perspective, including mine.

Billy: Yeah, he did, and we gave it to him. And I think that he listened to us, but at the end of the day, that is his mother. It’s not our vote, okay? And we need to be okay with the fact that it’s out of our hands. It’s kyle’s decision.

Jack: Kyle.

Kyle: What are you doing here?

Jack: Well, I saw you leave. I had a feeling you’d come here. I was concerned.

Kyle: There’s no reason to be. I’m sorry I snuck out like that. I’m still in my own head. I didn’t want to make allie’s arrival about me.

Jack: And you want to see your mother.

Kyle: I wanted to see how she was doing after being grilled by the abbotts.

Jack: You’re worried about her. I can assure you she can take care of herself. She always has.

Kyle: I know. That was pretty harsh back there.

Jack: She’s made a real impression on you, hasn’t she?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Kyle: I’m still working through all this, dad. I’m just taking it one moment at a time.

Jack: I just want to help in any way I can.

Kyle: I know you do, and you’ve been very supportive, but I think I need to do this on my own.

Jack: Okay.

Kyle: Besides, you should be back at the house. It’s amazing that allie showed up, and she seemed kind of overwhelmed.

Jack: Yeah, I think that’s meeting the whole family all at once.

Kyle: I could tell you were happy she was here.

Jack: Yeah, I can’t deny, I’m thrilled.

Kyle: I hope she sticks around for a while.

Jack: Well, I think she’s at least for a couple of days. She’s staying at the house. That’ll give me some quality time with her. I have a feeling she came to town for a specific reason.

Kyle: You don’t think she just wanted to meet the family?

Jack: No, I think it’s more than that. But she’ll open up to me once the time is right.

Kyle: For what it’s worth, she seemed really sweet. I look forward to getting to know her.

Jack: Good. Allie’s in good hands right now. I’m concerned about you. Look, I want to be a moral support if I can. I won’t interfere in anything you and diane say to each other. I —

Kyle: Dad, I’m fine. Really. And honestly, I think I need to talk to my mother on my own. There are some things she deserves to hear from me in private.

Jack: Say no more. I’ll see you back home afterward?

Kyle: Definitely.

Nick: It’s not a threat, diane. I’m just letting you know there is nothing for you in genoa city anymore.

Diane: Don’t be so sure about that.

Nick: You left a wake of destruction, but we all managed to move on and repair the damage that you caused. You were gone. You should’ve stayed gone.

Diane: And if it weren’t for kyle, I would have. But after years of missing my son and working hard to become the kind of mother he deserved, I was finally ready to reach out. You know, kyle’s is the only opinion that matters to me. The rest of you can just think whatever you want.

Sharon: Okay, I’m ready. What is going on here? Diane?

Diane: Hello, sharon. You’re looking terrific. And, no, I’m not a ghost. I’m — I’m very real.

Sharon: But how?

Diane: Oh, and I heard about your loss the last time I was here, and I’m so sorry.

Nick: Okay, you don’t need this, sharon. Everyone’s waiting for you at the house. I’ll take you home.

Sharon: Yeah, we have to go, but still —

Nick: I’ll fill you in on the way. Let’s go.

Diane: I honestly didn’t come back to cause anyone pain.

Elena: Oh, that feels really good.

Nate: Tough day at work?

Elena: [ Sighs ] Tough day, tough night. Plus, it’s not the same anymore.

Nate: What do you mean?

Elena: You’re not there.

Nate: Mm.

Elena: So now I have to wait until I get home to fill you in on everything.

Nate: Well, other than that, has the vibe changed between you and the rest of the staff?

Elena: Yeah. I’m not getting that subtle judgment about dating the chief of surgery anymore.

Nate: Good. You don’t deserve any of that attitude.

Elena: [ Chuckles ]

Nate: Besides, your ability speaks for itself. You are a surgical warrior.

Elena: Mm, well, right now i feel a lot less like a warrior and more like a marshmallow thanks to your magical hands.

Nate: Are you headed upstairs for a nap?

Elena: I am certainly headed upstairs. And you’re coming with me.

Nate: Am I?

Elena: Yes, I just got a burst of energy.

Nate: Okay, what do you have in mind?

Elena: Well, I was thinking i would start with a bubble bath.

Billy: Hi.

Lily: Hey. Hello. Nice to be back, right?

Billy: Yeah, sure.

Lily: Just so happy the construction next door is done, so that way we don’t have to work out of the apartment anymore.

Billy: Well, working out of the apartment had its benefits. I liked the commute. I didn’t have to always wear pants. But, yeah, it’s good to be back. We’ve had a lot of success here.

Lily: You seem off. Something happen at the family meeting?

Billy: [ Exhales sharply ] It’s not enough that diane jenkins is alive, she’s in town.

Lily: What?

Billy: Yeah, she came by the abbott house at kyle’s request. I don’t know, I guess to plead her case to the abbotts. We were able to ask her whatever we wanted.

Lily: Wow, so I guess that’s why jack wanted you there. How did it go?

Billy: Well, she gave us her song and dance about how she’s a changed person. She made a pretty compelling case as to why she should be allowed back in kyle’s life. I told him that if I was in his shoes, that I would give her a second chance.

Lily: You did?

Billy: Yes, I did. Ashley had a different opinion.

Lily: Well, I mean, everyone’s gonna have a different opinion, but at the end of the day, it’s up to kyle.

Billy: I agree. That’s what I told him. It’s his decision. And then, after diane left —

Lily: Oh, wait, there’s more?

Billy: There’s more. Jack’s long, lost granddaughter showed up.

Lily: So you met her?

Billy: I did. She’s very nice. She seemed like a very kind person. I was mostly just happy for jack. You know, he was very surprised and over-the-moon.

Lily: Wow, well, that’s a lot to happen in one day. I’m exhausted just hearing about it.

Billy: How’d it go with nate and devon?

Lily: It was actually really good. Yeah, nate is fully invested, pitching ideas. You know, things are coming along. And devon’s even open now to the big launch party.

Billy: Oh, that’s great. Happy to hear that.

Lily: Yeah, so not as much drama as the day that you had, but…

Billy: Well, speaking of drama, um…there’s something else I need to tell you. Want more from your vitamin brand?

Billy: You were right about victoria’s reaction to my “grinning soul” podcast.

[ Sighs ] I ran into her on the way to the abbott house, and she questioned me. Of course I denied it, but she knows it’s me.

Lily: Right, of course she does.

Billy: And she knew that i was talking about ashland.

Lily: [ Sighs ] Well, you let your anger cloud your judgment.

Billy: And now you get to say “I told you so.”

Lily: No, I’m not gonna do that. I — I love that you have the “grinning soul” persona to kind of share things without using your name. You know, I think it’s a good way for you to express yourself. But you have to be careful. I don’t think that your stories should hit close to home.

Billy: I hear what you’re saying, but what is the point in having a free-wheeling, speak-truth-to-power platform if I’m not actually trying to make an impact on the world that we live in?

Lily: It’s about finding the right balance, finding that median point to where it’s both personal and universal.

Billy: You are so smart.

Lily: [ Chuckles ]

Billy: And I promise you that I will make more of an effort to do that moving forward.

Lily: Good.

Billy: But right now there’s something else on my mind.

Lily: [ Chuckles ]

Kyle: [ Sighs ]

[ Knock on door ] It’s kyle. Hello?

[ Knock on door ]

Ashley: Hey. Did you go after kyle? I mean, that’s the only reason you left so abruptly, isn’t it?

Jack: Yeah, you’re right. I went to check on him. He’s fine. Where — where’d everybody go?

Ashley: Billy just took off.

Traci: Allie and abby are in the kitchen getting a bite to eat, and I think they’re hitting it off.

Jack: And did you get a chance to talk to allie for a little bit?

Traci: I did. She’s lovely.

Jack: And did you give her the whole abbott family history?

Traci: No. Just volumes one and two.

Jack: [ Laughs ]

Ashley: Jack, I like her. I mean, I know I had my reservations, but now that I’ve met her, I’d like to get to know her a little bit better.

Jack: Good, I’m glad to hear that.

Traci: Although I did get the sense that something is weighing on her.

Jack: Yeah, I got the same sense, but you know what? I’m not gonna push. I’m gonna wait till she’s ready to tell me.

Ashley: Well, whatever is going on with your granddaughter, traci and I were talking and we’re gonna leave the two of you alone so you can catch up.

Jack: Well, that’s very generous, thank you.

Traci: Oh, just one little word of advice before we go.

Jack: Okay.

Traci: [ Chuckles ] Jack, I know that you decided that you’re not going to push her for answers, but what if she’s feeling that she can’t burden you with her problems?

Jack: No, I’ve already told her. She can talk to me about anything, anytime.

Traci: Yes, but she’s young and just getting to know you, and maybe she feels like she can’t open up. I was just thinking, maybe she came here for you to lend her a shoulder to lean on without her having to ask. And tonight’s winning number, 43

Billy: [ Sighs ] There have been some questions about whether I am talking about someone or something specific. What I can say is that my musings — or my ramblings, as some people would call them — are of a universal nature. However, they are from my experiences as I try to share some thoughts to give you one person’s perspective on the world at large. It’s not always going to be pretty. In fact, at times, it will be downright ugly. I will change the names to protect the innocent.

[ Sighs ] But then again, who among us is innocent? I know I am not. And in saying that, I will be hard on myself. But I will be very hard on the ones that mean to take advantage of others. On the ones that mean harm to others. On the ones that have evil in their hearts, I promise you I will show them no mercy.

Nate: Poured you a glass of chardonnay.

Elena: Thank you.

Nate: It should help you relax.

Elena: Oh, I’m plenty relaxed, believe me.

Nate: Mm.

Elena: And yet, energetic. I guess you have that effect on me.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] I feel the same way. I was so excited about work and my meetings with devon and lily, then you walked in. I couldn’t focus on anything but you and these beautiful eyes.

Elena: Mm. Yeah, I could tell you had a great meeting because your energy was infectious.

Nate: It was great.

[ Chuckles ] I didn’t think I could get that worked up about business. It’s inspiring.

Elena: [ Chuckles ] Well, it helps when you’re working with the right people.

Nate: That’s true. There’s something magical about a family coming together to share a dream.

Sharon: I don’t understand how it’s even possible that diane is alive.

Nick: I don’t know the details, but I cannot believe she could show her face around here after everything she’s done to this family. But let’s not — let’s not worry about diane, alright? We’ve got far more important things to consider today.

Sharon: I know. I don’t have the bandwidth right now to give her another moment of my time, but…

Nick: But what?

Sharon: But I’m wondering how her sudden reappearance is affecting you. I mean, I’m rattled by seeing her. And you were a lot closer than I was. How are you doing?

Nick: Look, I’m fine. Let’s not worry about diane, alright? My only focus today is on you. Is there anything you need me to do for rey’s service?

Sharon: I know you’re worried about me and you want to do your part to help, but honestly, nick, just being here is enough. It’s everything. Thank you. I don’t know how I would get through this without you and the kids.

Nick: Well, we’re gonna be there for you today, every day after today. For whatever you need.

Diane: Kyle, what are you doing here?

Kyle: Um, waiting for you. Where have you been?

Diane: Just around town, visiting some of my old stomping grounds, trying to reconnect with genoa city.

Kyle: How’d that go?

Diane: Oh, it was — it was difficult. It’s going to be a long, hard process, but that’s to be expected. I — I feel better just seeing you, though. I’m glad you waited for me.

Kyle: Yeah, I didn’t know how’d you react. I wasn’t sure if you felt like i ambushed you back at the house. But, um…I’d understand if you’re angry with me.

Diane: Not at all. I know why you wanted me to face the family.

[ Chuckles ] I was able to explain myself to everybody at once, and they were able to respond and everything’s out in the open. It was — it was positive.

Kyle: I’m glad you see it like that.

Diane: Yeah, I can imagine there was a colorful conversation after I left.

Kyle: Yeah. That’s — that’s a fair description.

Diane: Yeah. So I guess there’s just one question now.

Kyle: What’s that?

Diane: Where does that leave the two of us? Is that what you came to tell me?

Kyle: This may be hard for you to hear. But I came to tell you…I’m going back to milan tonight.

Allie: You’re back.

Jack: Hey. Everyone’s been treating you well?

Allie: Everyone’s been great.

Jack: Well, you made a good first impression with the abbotts. Everyone is raving.

Abby: Where’s my mom and aunt traci?

Jack: Oh, they just stepped out for a second.

Abby: Well, I am really glad that you’re back, uncle jack, because I have to get going and I didn’t want to leave allie here all by herself. Allie, it was really nice to meet you. If you need anything at all, just give me a call.

Allie: Thanks, abby, for everything.

Jack: Thanks, abby. You’re the best.

Abby: Bye.

Jack: So did you get all settled in upstairs?

Allie: I did. Traci was a big help. Everyone has been really great, jack. Just like you said.

Jack: And your room is okay?

Allie: Yeah, the room is lovely. I mean, the house is just beautiful, so…

Jack: I know this is all a bit overwhelming, but everyone is genuinely happy to meet you, and they all want you to feel at home here.

Allie: [ Sighs ] Your family has been nothing but kind and warm and generous to me.

Jack: They’re your family, too, allie.

Allie: [ Crying ]
