Recap written by Eva

Nate meets Victoria at the park and he agrees to sell her his stock in Chancellor Winters when the company goes public so when she buys as much stock as she can his stock will give her majority stake in the company. Lily agrees to let Nate run the company when it becomes part of Newman Enterprises provided he can be her man inside Chancellor Winters and give her the information she needs to obtain Chancellor Winters stock.

Nate returns to Chancellor Winters and apologizes to them and tells them he will respect their authority if they let him return to the company. Devon, Lily, and Billy are glad to have Nate back at the company but they have no idea he plans to betray them and take the company away from them.

Devon and Billy still don’t think the company should go public because it will stop being a family company if they have to answer to a board of directors full of strangers.

Nikki meets with Deacon Sharpe who tells her that the few times he saw Diane in Los Angeles, she was driving a Bentley with a guy in the backseat whom he assumed was a rich guy. Deacon also tells Nikki he has something she needs to see at the restaurant where he works. Nikki is reluctant to go to the restaurant, but Talia persuades Nikki to go meet Deacon at the restaurant.

Diane returns to work and gets angry because Victor won’t give her a second chance. Diane tells Phyllis to stay out of her way or she will be sorry. Phyllis tells Diane she knew it wouldn’t take long for the real Diane to come out and it just happened right now.

Best Lines provided by Eva

Chloe: I brought some cappuccinos and, well, your favorite pastries from that Italian place that you love.

Sally: What’s the occasion?

Chloe: Oh… I just wanted to make up for the way I acted yesterday.

Sally: What way was that?

Chloe: Chewing you out about Adam. I — I said some things that i just — I wish I hadn’t.

Sally: I see.

Chloe: So, this is me trying to apologize. You know, I just want to put things behind us and start over. And when it comes to Adam, we can just agree to disagree. As long as you can keep your personal life separate from your work and not miss any more important meetings, I think that —

[Sighs] You know, I’m — I’m sorry again. I really didn’t mean to go there. I feel like I’ve been scolding you all the time lately, and it’s not appropriate or professional, and it’s not conducive to our being friends. Are we on the same page?


Victoria: Oh, is that what we’re calling it?

Nick: I’m handling it, okay?

[Knock on door, door opens]

Sally: Victoria, I was hoping that you… have a minute?

Victoria: What can I do for you, sally?

Sally: I’m here to apologize to you directly for missing the meeting yesterday. I’m just making things right with the team.

Victoria: Yes, so I’ve heard.

Sally: Sometimes life encroaches on work, and I know you understand that as well as anyone. I’ve seen you handle a crisis in your personal life without missing a beat here at Newman, and I’m seriously in awe of your ability to do that. But I feel like I have the inner resources and steely resolve that you have, so, in time, I’m confident that I will be able to emulate your example. But yesterday I screwed up, and it was my mistake. It will not happen again.

Victoria: Good.

Diane: I am so sorry. I didn’t plan to be here this late. I fell asleep reading to Harrison.

Jack: Oh, no.

Diane: Yeah, he’s — he’s still down for the night. But, um, I conked out in that little chair next to him.

Jack: I know from experience it’s not the most comfortable place to knock off.

Diane: No, no, it isn’t. Um, I guess Kyle and Summer went upstairs to bed and didn’t even realized I was up there. I’m a little — I’m a little embarrassed about it.


Victor: You’re so tense, baby. I’ve never seen you this tense before a flight.

Though near or far

Nikki: Well, you seem calmer than when I saw you earlier.

Victor: Mm-hmm. Well, I did many rounds on the heavy bag.

Nikki: Oh. Did you win?

Victor: Well, whatever the imaginary foes were, I knocked them all on their ass.

Victoria: And you should be. That’s what I wanted to say. Congratulations.

Lily: Wow. Thank you.

Victoria: You’re welcome. Look, I’m really sorry that things got unnecessarily tense between us for a while. I was dealing with Ashland, and, honestly, I feel like the stress of that just — just kind of affected every part of my life. But I’ve put that behind me now, and I feel like I’m starting a new chapter and getting a fresh start. And I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate you as a peer. I mean, you and I — we’re part of a very exclusive club, female CEOs [Chuckles] Which thankfully is growing. And I just think that we need to recognize and value each other whenever and wherever we can.

Lily: Thank you for saying that. And I am very honored to be a part of the club. Maybe we should have, like, a secret handshake


Victor: You can’t understand, not this time, man. You know, fathers and sons often have difficult relationships. I was very, very proud to call Adam my son. But he’s also caused me a lot of heartache. But I must say that I have had nothing but good intentions where he is concerned. Of course, that applies to my other children, as well. Anyway…

[Inhales deeply] Not easy being a father sometimes, is it?

Jack: Well, we certainly try.

Victor: Yeah. And by the way, my apologies, okay? I’ve been remiss in conveying my condolences in regard to Keemo.

Nick: I wasn’t sure you’d still be here. It’s after hours.

Sally: Well, I’m making up for lost time. There’s no way I was about to leave just because the sun went down. In spite of everything that happened, I’m determined to end today on a strong note.

Nick: Glad to hear it.

Sally: Yeah, I’m all about forward momentum, so this is me putting 100% effort into my job. Let there be no doubt that Newman Media is my number-one priority. I’m gonna prove to everyone that I belong in this chair.


Kyle: Mm-hmm. Listen. Hear that?

Summer: What? [Chuckles]

Kyle: Beautiful, golden silence. Our boy is upstairs in bed. Nobody else is home.

Summer: Hmm.

Kyle: We have the whole place to ourselves.

Summer: I guess we do.

Kyle: Oh, imagine the possibilities.

Summer: My mind is going all sorts of places.

Nick: Dad just has to have his way and interfere in everything. He’s got to move the chess pieces around so everyone is exactly where he wants them, no matter what they want for themselves. I mean, can you believe this?

Victoria: [Chuckles] Yes, I can believe this. And you’re right. That’s exactly what dad’s doing.


Nick: I don’t get it. Why aren’t you more bothered by dad’s interference?

Victoria: It’s who he is. I mean, at this point, I could write his playbook. You could. So, it’s okay. Let him — let him make his suggestions that he wants to make. Ultimately, we’re gonna make the call on how to handle this.

Nick: Okay.

Victoria: What do you want?

Nick: Oh. What do i want? Uh, I would like to no longer be a part of any more of dad’s mind games targeting Adam.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Well, good luck with that. What else are you thinking?

Chloe: I come in peace. I got you some cappuccinos and, well, your favorite pastries from that italian place that you love.

Sally: What’s the occasion?

Chloe: Oh… I just wanted to make up for the way I acted yesterday.

Sally: What way was that?

Chloe: Chewing you out about adam. I — I said some things that i just — I wish I hadn’T.

Sally: I see.

Chloe: So, this is me trying to apologize. You know, I just want to put things behind us and start over. And when it comes to adam, we can just agree to disagree. As long as you can keep your personal life separate from your work and not miss any more important meetings, I think that —

[ Sighs ] You know, I’m — I’m sorry again. I really didn’t mean to go there. I feel like I’ve been scolding you all the time lately, and it’s not appropriate or professional, and it’s not conducive to our being friends. Are we on the same page?

Sally: About what?

Chloe: Starting fresh. Let’s just put adam aside, eat a pastry, and, you know, tackle all of this work that we have to get to. Sound good?

Sally: Yeah. Yeah, you’re right. Um, I should immerse myself in work. But to do that, there is something that I — I need to take care of first.

Chloe: [ Sighs ]

[ Knock on door ]

Nick: Morning.

Victoria: Hi. Morning yourself. I was hoping that you would be in early. I was just going over some of the final details of some of the acquisitions that we’ve made, including who’s gonna be running them once they’ve been absorbed into newman enterprises.

Nick: Any preliminary thoughts?

Victoria: Well, I’m — I’m still very intrigued by the idea of nate hastings. I did a little recon about the state of play at chancellor-winters with billy, and it turns out that things have been tense over there for a while. So maybe nate — maybe he really is leaving.

Nick: Happened to run into nate at society last night.

Victoria: And?

Nick: Seems like he’s ready for a change.

Victoria: Interesting. The only problem is, how do we utilize him?

Nick: Do we have a place for him in any of our new acquisitions?

Victoria: Well, if I had an obvious fit, I’d make an offer to him right now, but unfortunately, most of the senior roles are requiring specialized expertise.

Nick: Why can’t we just create a position then, just to get him in the door?

Victoria: Anything’s possible. I think I’ll give it some thought. So, moving on to our other employees, how are things with sally?

Nick: In what sense?

Victoria: I’m assuming that you put her on notice since she blew off that marketing summit yesterday. Don’t you dare tell me that you accepted her apology and let it go. Did you?

Devon: Alright, who else we waiting on?

Lily: Uh, no one. Billy is dealing with an issue with the ad agency, so I’ll fill him in later.

Devon: Alright. I take it from your message that you want to discuss nate quitting?

Lily: Well, I’m still hoping that he will change his mind and cool off, but in the event that he doesn’t, I want to know what our exposure could be.

Devon: And what do you mean by exposure?

Lily: Well, what are the legal and business ramifications of your coo’s abrupt departure? I mean, we don’t know. Did he sign an nda? Is there a non-compete clause in his contract? I mean, can he take ideas that he developed here to another company?

Imani: You mean all of those great ideas you two shot down?

[ Scoffs ] Guys, I can’t believe what I’m hearing. The guy’s chair isn’t even cold yet, and here you are starting to talk about legal ramifications? So, what, neither one of you is gonna try to talk to him, try to smooth things over? Is that how this family operates?

Devon: Imani, how come you’re being so defensive of nate?

Imani: [ Scoffs ] Because clearly someone has to be.

Nate: [ Exhales heavily ]

[ Groans lightly ] What time is it?

Elena: I let you sleep in a bit.

Nate: [ Sighs ] Thanks for the tea.

Elena: I tossed and turned all night. Couldn’t sleep. I hate when we argue.

Nate: Yeah. So do I.

Elena: Look, I understand that you are under a lot of stress. I know quitting your job is not a decision that you came to lightly. And I wish it weren’t necessary, but I get that you feel like you were at the end of your rope.

Nate: I’d say I was beyond the end.

Elena: So I want you to know that I want to be here to support you. And I also want to help you move on to your next opportunity, whatever that may be… and repair your relationship with your family. I’m hoping, after a good night’s rest, you want that, too, and that you’ve changed your mind about going forward with the plan that you shared with me?

Nate: On the contrary. I’m more resolved about that than ever.

Additional sponsorship

provided by… my blood pressure is borderline.

Elena: Nate. Please do not do this. You left chancellor-winters on your own terms. Can you just leave it at that? You can do anything you want now. You’re not under devon’s control anymore. But if you go further with this plan, it’s only gonna cause more trouble.

Nate: So be it. I highly doubt devon and I can get past this conflict.

Elena: Okay, so, what about lily? She’s been doing nothing but trying to keep the peace. She brought you into this company. She gave you a chance. And she’s been backing you up.

Nate: Only to a point. And in the end, she’ll side with devon each and every time, leaving me the odd man out.

Elena: So, what, you want to punish her, too?

Nate: [ Sighs ]

Elena: Have you even thought about how much this is going to hurt her? This feels so wrong to me.

Nate: And it feels so right to me.

Elena: [ Scoffs ] So, here we are, arguing and fighting again.

Nate: Because you’ve misconstrued my motives. I’d be helping lily because, ultimately, I would be helping chancellor-winters, the family business lily fought so hard to create. Elena, I am out to succeed. I am an asset, not a liability. That’s what no one seems to understand.

Elena: Except for imani?

Nate: She’s helped me to see my value. My ideas are strong, and I am forward-thinking. What is wrong with that?

Elena: There’s nothing wrong with being a visionary. But this is not what you’re talking about.

Nate: [ Sighs ] I disagree. My ideas are big, and this is the right move for me to make, so I’m not gonna stop. This is my time. And it’s the best way I can see to make a lasting mark so I can finally take control.

Elena: So then that’s it? You’re determined, and there’s no talking you out of it?

Nate: My mind’s made up, and I’m gonna set things in motion today.

Lily: Imani, we are a strong family. We have tried to work things out with nate, and we will continue to do so. But as the leaders of this company, it is our responsibility to know where things stand when it comes to the intellectual property that nate has been overseeing. And as a lawyer, you should know this. I mean, amanda does. She’s the one who told us to confirm these details.

Imani: Okay, well, the best way to protect our intellectual property is to keep nate around. Guys, he is such an asset to this company. He’s got strong ideas, a real passion for the work that we do. I’ve been trying to convince him to stay. And I think if we all put forth a genuine effort to make sure he knows he’s valued, he could be swayed.

Devon: Imani, I’m not gonna try and convince anyone to be here who doesn’t want to be here, okay? The man made up his mind. It’s not gonna change just because someone flatters him.

Imani: [ Scoffs ] That’s not what I said.

Devon: Well, either way, I do think it’s the best thing that he left ’cause he and I can never find common ground, and i didn’t see that changing.

Imani: Guys, this blows me away, how easy it is for you to just let nate go.

Lily: None of this has been easy. And I’m sorry, but I don’t know what you’re getting at.

Victoria: You’re hesitating, which means I’m right. You’re gonna let sally get away with this?

Nick: She made a mistake, vick.

Victoria: Oh, is that what we’re calling it?

Nick: I’m handling it, okay?

[ Knock on door, door opens ]

Sally: Victoria, I was hoping that you… have a minute?

Victoria: What can I do for you, sally?

Sally: I’m here to apologize to you directly for missing the meeting yesterday. I’m just making things right with the team.

Victoria: Yes, so I’ve heard.

Sally: Sometimes life encroaches on work, and I know you understand that as well as anyone. I’ve seen you handle a crisis in your personal life without missing a beat here at newman, and I’m seriously in awe of your ability to do that. But I feel like I have the inner resources and steely resolve that you have, so, in time, I’m confident that I will be able to emulate your example. But yesterday I screwed up, and it was my mistake. It will not happen again.

Victoria: Good.

Nick: Sally, I need to speak to you about that other matter we got into yesterday. Do you have time for coffee?

Sally: I will make time. The abcs of ckd

Sally: Isn’t it gorgeous out?

Nick: Yeah. It’s nice to get outside and enjoy it.

Sally: Mm-hmm. Yeah, it’s the kind of day that just stimulates your senses and makes you feel alive and excited.

[ Both chuckle ]

Nick: You know, you don’t have to do that with me, sally. Try and make small talk. We can be honest with each other.

Sally: I don’t want things to be weird at work.

Nick: Me either.

Sally: Adam came to see me last night after our weird dinner.

[ Both chuckle ]

Nick: You mean after i dropped you off at your place?

Sally: Yeah. He made some — I guess you would call them declarations. And they messed with my head. They made me feel pretty conflicted.

Adam: Is sally around?

Chloe: Uh, she got called into a meeting with nick. That’s all I know.

Adam: When I was ceo, I don’t think I interacted once with the newman coos. At least, not about work.

Chloe: Maybe because it was nikki, who wanted nothing to do with you, much like me. So, if you could please make yourself scarce.

Adam: Are nick and victoria keeping a heavier hand on the day-to-day operations? And if so, why? What could that mean?

Chloe: What are you getting at?

Adam: I’m just wondering.

Chloe: If you’re trying to insinuate that they don’t trust our new leadership, just say it.

Lily: Imani, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have snapped at you.

Imani: Obviously, we all feel strongly about this.

Lily: Yes, we do. And just for the record, I have not given up on nate. I will continue to try to talk to him. And I hope that you will keep an open mind in case I can win him over — ’cause this whole thing has spiraled completely out of control and at the worst possible time.

Devon: Why are you concerned about the timing of it?

Lily: Because I think that, you know, what jill suggested is the right way to go.

Devon: Well, let’s hang on a second ’cause —

Lily: Well — [ Stammers ] Look, let’s just pretend that nate isn’t coming back, okay? So, please look into his contract and let us know what we’re up against.

Imani: Done. I will track down information on the nda and non-compete, if they exist. But thank you. Thanks for not giving up on him yet. See you guys later, okay?

Lily: Mm-hmm.

Devon: Yeah.

[ Clears throat ]

Lily: [ Scoffs ] I mean, i wasn’t expecting that kind of pushback.

Devon: Yeah, I think that, uh — I think she has a thing for nate.

Lily: Uh, yeah, you think?

[ Scoffs ] Uh, look, also, um, when we talk about the ipo, let’s just keep it between us, billy, and jill.

Devon: Well, you talk about it like it’s already a done deal. Do I not have a say anymore or…?

Lily: What do you mean? Of course you have a say. We’re equal partners.

Devon: Then why does it sound like you’ve already made up your mind and you’re siding with jill?

Lily: I’m not siding with anybody.

Devon: Okay. What do you want to call it?

Lily: Look, all that’s happening is that there’s a possibility of an ipo on the table, and we’re in the beginning stages of exploring it.

Devon: Right. I just think that you’re about to make an impulsive decision about something that’s really important.

Lily: Impulsive?

Devon: Mm.

Lily: Really?

Devon: Yes. Impulsive.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Okay. You know, I don’t appreciate you challenging my decision-making process just because it’s different from yours.

Devon: It’s not just ’cause it’s different from mine. I know I’m not the only one that has concerns about going public. Billy feels the way I feel, doesn’t he?

Lily: Yeah, of course, but, devon, I mean, we have to sit down and hash things out — and get approval from the board, which could take a long time.

Devon: Well, I hope it does.

Lily: Look, this is between us, okay? It’s our responsibility to make this decision. It’s our decision, yours and mine.

Devon: And jill’s, too. There’s three people involved, two of them are on board, and I’m the only one who’s hesitant. So I’m on my own in this.

Lily: [ Sighs heavily ]

[ Folder thuds ] For copd,

Adam: Chloe, calm down. I’m not insinuating anything. I’m just asking a question. Why are you so quick to assume you and sally are on the chopping block? Has she said anything about it?

Chloe: Okay, well, if you must know, it’s because she missed a very important meeting yesterday because she was with you.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Chloe: Yes. I know all about it.

Adam: She told me about her scheduling gaffe when I was with her last night, and I — I felt terrible, okay? The last thing I want to do is cause more problems for her, chloe.

Chloe: The two of you were with each other again? Twice in one day?

Adam: Yes.

Chloe: Adam!

Adam: What?

Adam: You broke up with her, and you crushed her. She was confused. And then she finally starts feeling like herself again and she gets her stride back and then you just come out of the woodworks and start causing problems. Do you not understand how cruel that is? Or do you just not care? Why are you so compelled to always destroy every single person you were ever in a relationship with?

Adam: Enough! I don’t need this kind of abuse from you, chloe. And my personal life is none of your business.

Chloe: Well, when you hurt my friend, it is my business.

Adam: And for the record, i only have sally’s best interests at heart. Not that I will ever convince you of that.

Chloe: No. You sure as hell won’T.

Adam: Okay. I’m out of here, alright?

Chloe: [ Sighs ]

[ Cup thuds ]

[ Sighs ]

Nick: I don’t think I need to ask you what adam’s declarations were about.

Sally: I’m sure you don’T. ‘Cause he made it pretty clear where he stands last night during our awkward conversation at society.

Nick: I know I’ve been trying to warn you off him.

Sally: You and everyone else in this town.

Nick: Look, I know that you had — well, you have very strong feelings about my brother. And I don’t want to make things more difficult for you if you’re trying to get back together with him.

Sally: I-I’m not saying that that’s where things are headed, you know? Or even if that’s something that I’d want —

Nick: Look, I don’t think we should talk about adam. I understand messy and complicated love. But that is for the two of you to sort out, without me being any kind of factor whatsoever.

[ Knock on door ]

Victoria: What is it?

Adam: I’m looking for sally. I heard she had a meeting with nick, and they weren’t in his office.

Victoria: Oh. You just missed them. I think they stepped out to grab some coffee. Shouldn’t you be settling into your new position at jabot? I guess if you have all this free time to be chasing around after your ex, it’s not that important of a job. It was probably a mercy offering from jack since he’s one of the few people who can still tolerate you in this town.

Adam: Oh, it’s a real job. Mm-hmm. And I have a lot on my plate. But, uh, I am capable of multi-tasking.

Victoria: Unlike sally?

Adam: What’s that supposed to mean?

Victoria: Well, if you were actually in touch with her, you know damn well what that means. She was supposed to give a presentation at a marketing summit yesterday, and she completely blew it off. Chloe had to step in for her. This is not a behavior that i value in one of my ceos.

Adam: Do you have any idea why sally was a no-show?

Victoria: Well, luckily i have my coo to take care of my personnel issues. Nicholas got into it with her. Something about extenuating circumstances, the fact that it would never happen again, which remains to be seen.

Adam: Well, one missed meeting shouldn’t make or break someone’s career, victoria.

Victoria: Oh, I agree with that in theory. But I also know that people are replaceable, which is something that I hope nick is making very clear to sally right now.

Imani: Ah. You want some company? Sure, you do.

Nate: Eating and running. Busy day ahead.

Imani: Hmm. You’re not the only one. Trust me. Lily decided to call an emergency meeting at the crack of dawn.

Nate: Emergency for what?

Imani: You. Seems the powers that be are shaken up by your resignation.

Nate: Devon, too?

Imani: Mm, not that he’d ever admit it. Look, I tried to reason with him, encouraged him to reach out, talk things through, but you were right. He is very stubborn.

Nate: That’s one way to put it.

Imani: [ Chuckles ] Now, lily, on the other hand, seems to want to work things out for you to return. I think she’s going to lean on him and kind of —

Nate: I’m gonna stop you there. I know what you’re trying to do.

Imani: Standing up for you to the head honchos?

Nate: Which I appreciate. But I believe I have a much better, more powerful solution, thanks to you.

Imani: Mm. Do tell.

Nate: You suggested I think more — what was the word? — Ruthlessly. Well, I’m planning on taking your advice starting today.

Imani: Mm.

Who’s on it with jardiance?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

What can you do

with sensitive skin?

[ Bottle thuds ]

Elena: Ooh! Whoa! Sorry.

Devon: Oh. So sorry. No. It’s my fault. I wasn’t paying attention at all.

Elena: Obviously, I wasn’t, either.

Devon: My bad. Hey, can I get a coffee to go, please? Thank you.

Elena: Hey, is everything alright?

Devon: Oh…

[ Chuckles ] I’ve been better. How about you?

Elena: Same.

Devon: I’ll give you one guess as to who’s got us both down.

Elena: Yeah. Let’s just say nate is on a path that does not make me happy.

Devon: Well, I’m sorry to hear that ’cause I know he quit so he wouldn’t have to keep bumping heads with me. And I feel bad about that ’cause when I hired him, I had every intention of it working out.

Elena: I know you did.

Devon: Honestly, though, i really think this is probably the best ’cause, you know, on paper working side by side looked good, but we have very different philosophies.

Elena: That’s for sure.

Devon: I hope this isn’t causing you any stress at home.

Lily: Hi. Sorry.

Elena: Hey.

Lily: I don’t mean to interrupt. I just need to speak with you privately.

Devon: You need to talk right this second?

Lily: Yeah, that would be great.

Elena: It’s okay. I actually need to get going. It was good to see you both.

Devon: Yeah, you too. I promise we’ll catch up.

Elena: Okay.

Adam: Victoria, you’re overreacting. If sally says she’s not gonna make a particular mistake again, you can take that to the bank. She’s conscientious to a fault. She’s hungry to succeed here.

Victoria: Why are you still advocating for your ex? I thought you broke up with her. I thought you were the one who ended things. If your continued presence in her life is causing this distraction, for the love of god, why don’t you just let her go? I mean, if you really, really care about her, why don’t you just let her get on with her life?

Adam: I am just so sick of everybody telling me that, victoria. I’m trying to right a wrong. Isn’t that what civilized, evolved people do?

Victoria: Yes, but I’m —

[ Chuckling ] I’m sorry. Is that what you’re claiming to be now?

Adam: I’m trying to prove that is what I am now.

Victoria: Oh. And you really expect me to believe that — that you love the woman?

Adam: I learned a long time ago not to expect anything from you. But, yes, I do love sally. And I made a terrible mistake thinking that I was helping her, and I’m trying to fix that. I guess you can’t understand admitting that you screwed up. You just like to forge ahead, pretend like you didn’t leave a wake of destruction. So I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that you have no clue where I’m coming from.

Sally: Yeah, I need to steer clear of any complications ’cause I realized by letting myself get distracted yesterday, I put everything in jeopardy. My judgment hasn’t been great, as you know. So I just need to keep my attention laser-focused on newman media. What was it that you texted me yesterday? “Ceos miss meetings sometimes.”

Nick: Yeah. Everyone slips up once in a while.

Sally: Yeah, well, I can’t afford to. I mean, not now that victoria’s so ticked off at me. But I do appreciate your understanding. You know, I think you and i should have the same for each other in this moment.

Nick: Yeah. Yeah. So, should we head back to the office?

[ Door bangs ]

[ Door closes ]

[ Both breathing heavily ]

[ Belt clatters ] At metro by t-mobile… you can save more.

[ Keys clacking ]

Nate: Your focus is impressive. I admire that, when someone can lose themselves in their work like that. I’m the same way.

[ Chuckles ]

Victoria: What brings you by, nate?

[ Door closes ]

Nate: I have a proposal that I believe will be of great interest to you.

[ Both breathing heavily ]

Sally: W-well, that did not go according to plan.

Nick: No, not at all.

Sally: [ Exhales sharply ] I did not intend for this to happen again, I-I swear. I didn’t even think it was a possibility.

Nick: I mean, this, uh — this attraction, whatever it is we’re calling it… I never thought in a million years.

Sally: A billion years.

Nick: Trillion.

Sally: Quadrillion.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Pentillion?

Sally: Quintrillion.

Nick: [ Clicks tongue ]

Sally: Closely followed by sextillion. I kid you not.

Nick: [ Smooches ] Remind me never to go up against you in trivia night.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] What can I say? I have expertise in all sorts of areas you would never expect.

Nick: This is, um… unexpected. Surprising.

Sally: Well, we could analyze it to death, or we could just order some room service, grab a shower… eat lunch, and… get back to work.

Lily: I know that we need to have a serious conversation about the possibility of going public, but I feel like there’s something more pressing right now.

Devon: You’d like to talk about nate some more?

Lily: Yeah. Um, I am really upset that the tension between you two has gotten to the point where nate feels like his only option is to quit.

Devon: Yeah. So do I. Do you blame me for it?

Lily: I mean, frankly, yeah, I kind of do. And, look, I’m not saying that he’s blameless because he’s not, you know? But I feel like there’s something going on inside of your head where you won’t accept anything that he has to offer, even when he addresses your concerns. I just — I-I feel like you’re being unfair to him.

Devon: I don’t know where you’re getting that from ’cause I listen to everything he says.

Lily: Hold on. Let me just — wait. Let me just — I’m sorry. Let me just finish ’cause I just want to get this out.

Devon: Sure.

Lily: [ Sighs ] I wanted to do this merger because I wanted to build on what you and dad had created. I wanted to build something for our family. And so I don’t want to lose nate. I can’t lose him, okay? So, please, devon, please — I just need you to consider your part in this. Like, why? Why is it so hard for you to let him have a win every once in a while?

Devon: That’s not what it is.

Lily: Okay. Then what is it? I mean, what — just tell me. I mean, have you been autonomous for so long that maybe it’s hard for you to, you know, give up a little bit of control? ‘Cause if that’s the case, I get it. You’ve had control over things for a long time, especially the music side. So, you know, it can be hard to delegate, and that’s fine. That’s totally fine. If that’s the case, let’s talk about it. Let’s figure it out. We’ll work it out. Or, what, is it deeper than that? I mean, are you subconsciously trying to punish nate for what happened with elena?

Victoria: A proposal? Well, that sounds intriguing.

Nate: First, some news. Jill’s informed upper management that she wants to take chancellor-winters public.

Victoria: That’s a very big move for a family company. I mean, particularly one that’s merged so recently.

Nate: Devon’s first knee-jerk reaction was to say no. Typical. Billy seemed hesitant. But lily’s all-in. I believe she and jill will prevail.

Victoria: Did jill say why she was proposing this?

Nate: The usual reason — to raise capital for a rapid expansion. Meanwhile, I know you’ve been on a shopping spree for newman.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] I guess you could say that.

Nate: I’m willing to be your inside man feeding you information, anything that can be helpful so you can be ready to make your move.

Victoria: Are you suggesting what I think you are?

Nate: You can buy up shares for newman, gain majority control of the company. Smooth dark chocolate, refreshing peppermint,

Devon: Lily, nate and I got past that situation with elena a long time ago. This isn’t some kind of payback. And I’m not a vindictive person, so it doesn’t feel great that you would imply that about me.

Lily: Okay. I’m sorry. I-I am. I just — [ Sighs ] I mean, come on. I’m trying to figure this out to keep our family from falling apart.

Devon: I understand completely what you’re trying to do. I just don’t know what to tell you. I really don’T. I mean, you know what? Maybe there’s some truth to what you’re saying about my leadership skills. I know it’s my instinct to take charge. I tend to think I know what’s best, which I guess can be annoying to some people, but that’s only because of all the experience I have. I’ve been working in the business world since I was a teenager, with neil. You know this. I know what to look for. And I usually can see the pitfalls about 10 steps ahead of any idea nate brings to me.

Lily: I know that. I know. And I get it. That’s fine. But, I mean, sometimes people have to make their own mistakes. It can’t always be you, you know, showing someone the next dangerous curve ahead.

Devon: So, what you’re saying is that, in order to get nate to believe that I know more about business than he does, I need to be more open to his ideas and give him the opportunity to fail.

Victoria: Well, I have to say, I’m — I’m completely stunned that you would come here to tell me this. Why would you help newman gain a controlling share of chancellor-winters?

Nate: You said you admired my ideas, my energy, my skills. You know I’m ambitious, driven to make a mark in the business world, to prove this is where i can shine.

Victoria: And you think that feeding me insider information is the way to do that.

Nate: You want to find a place for me at newman? Well, this is the place I want. I’ll help you acquire chancellor-winters shares if you put me in control of the company.

Victoria: You would that to your own family?

Sally: [ Sighs ] Have you seen my phone?

Nick: Right here.

Sally: Geez. Just kick them both under the bed, why don’t you?

Nick: Don’t tempt me.

Sally: Anything important?

Nick: No. You?

Sally: Nothing that can’t wait. I should get back to the office, though. Room service is taking forever. So, do you mind if I cancel?

[ Knock on door ]

Nick: Must be them now.

Sally: Hallelujah. I thought that you’d forgotten about me.

Next week on “the young and the restless”…

Adam: Are you sleeping with my brother?

Kyle: Summer newman abbott, will you make me the happiest man in genoa city? Will you marry me again?

Deacon: You know, I got to admit, I’ve — I’ve thought a lot about you over the years, you know, all the things that we went through together.

Nikki: Is that right?

Deacon: Absolutely. I wondered how you were doing. Oh, and, nik, one more thing. You look good.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Nate: One of those days, huh?

Nick: Ooh, yeah. Andy, can I get a beer? Thanks, man.

Nate: I hear you. I, um, just had to stop by for a quick drink or two to, uh, clear my head. You too?

Nick: [ Sighs ] Who am I kidding? It’s been more like one of those months. Or even years.

[ Chuckles ] So, yeah, let’s get a drink.

Jack: Hey, trace. I’m just wrapping things up here. Join me for a nightcap.

Diane: [ Chuckles ]

Jack: Oh, I — I didn’t realize you were here.

Diane: I am so sorry. I didn’t plan to be here this late. I fell asleep reading to harrison.

Jack: Oh, no.

Diane: Yeah, he’s — he’s still down for the night. But, um, I conked out in that little chair next to him.

Jack: I know from experience it’s not the most comfortable place to knock off.

Diane: No, no, it isn’T. Um, I guess kyle and summer went upstairs to bed and didn’t even realized I was up there. I’m a little — I’m a little embarrassed about it.

Jack: No, there’s no need to be.

Diane: Yeah, but now I’ve interrupted your time to unwind.

Jack: Don’t be silly. You are reading to our grandson. That’s hardly an intrusion.

[ Door closes ]

Nikki: Hey. Have you seen my travel chargers?

Victor: Have I seen your what?

Nikki: My travel chargers. I — I got tired of trying to keep track of every charger for every device, so I bought a lot of extra ones and I tucked them into this little case.

Victor: Huh. That’s a brilliant idea.

Nikki: Well, yeah, I thought that, too, but now I can’t find the case.

Victor: Oh, baby.

[ Glass thuds ] My baby.

Nikki: Well, I need them for my trip.

Victor: I know. I know. I know. I know.

[ “Unforgettable” playing ] Come here.

Nikki: [ Chuckling ] What?

Victor: Come here.

Nikki: What are you up to?

Victor: I think that you can buy whatever gadget it is in california.

Nikki: [ Sighs ]

That’s what you are

Victor: You need to relax now. Come here.


Victor: You’re so tense, baby. I’ve never seen you this tense before a flight.

Though near or far

Nikki: Well, you seem calmer than when I saw you earlier.

Victor: Mm-hmm. Well, I did many rounds on the heavy bag.

Nikki: Oh. Did you win?

Victor: Well, whatever the imaginary foes were, I knocked them all on their ass.

Nikki: [ Laughs ] Oh, this is so nice. But I do have a lot of packing to do.

Victor: Baby, it’s okay. Don’t worry, okay?

[ Smooches ] Enjoy the music.


in every way

Sally: [ Breathing heavily ]

Adam: [ Sighs ]

[ Doorknob rattles ] Sally?

[ Knock on door ]

Sally: [ Sniffles, sighs ]

Sally: Did you follow me home from society?

Adam: Why would I be interested in following you home?

Sally: No reason.

Adam: When we were at society, you didn’t mention that you were staying here.

Sally: The gcac was nice, but it was a little stuffy, so I was glad to get out of there.

Adam: Well, on behalf of the long-term grand phoenix residents, welcome back.

Sally: Thank you so much.

Adam: Can I come in for a nightcap?

Sally: I-I have a lot of work to catch up on.

Adam: Sally, I just want to talk. Just one drink. That’s it.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Diane: The problem is that once harrison becomes sleepy, it’s contagious.

Jack: Oh, tell me about it. And it doesn’t help that he wants to listen to the same stories over and over again.

Diane: [ Chuckling ] Oh, yeah. I must have read the bunny story at least six times. I mean, how many times can a little rabbit hop down the trail?

Jack: [ Chuckles ] Well, you know, I caught him at something the other day.

Diane: What’s that?

Jack: Well, you know how he has those dozens of dinosaurs?

Diane: Oh, I’ve seen them all.

Jack: I’ve always been very impressed that he knew the names of all of them.

Diane: I know, and he points them out — tyrannosaurus rex and triceratops.

Jack: Yeah, but he has a secret. He’s making up half of them.

Diane: What?

Jack: Well, I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt, but I had to draw the line at peanutbutter-asaurus.

Diane: [ Laughs ] Peanutbutter-asaurus?

Jack: Yeah. He tried to sell me as a legitimate name. I called him on it.

Diane: And what did he say?

Jack: He just giggled at me.

Diane: Oh, he is such a little stinker.

Jack: Yeah, and he has the charm to pull it all off. Listen, I know you don’t want to interrupt my evening, but there’s no reason I should have to relax alone. Um, can I maybe offer you a drink?

Diane: That would be lovely. Actually, a cup of tea would be nice. After the hectic day I’ve had, I could, um, use something to calm my nerves.

Nate: To surviving another day.

Nick: Yes, sir. I assume your troubles are related to ashland locke?

Nick: [ Chuckles ] Man, that was like three crises ago. You know, we put out one fire, another one just takes its place. It’s constant. You would have thought that when ashland died, the chaos would have gone away, but there’s just more to it, you know? There’s long-term consequences for everything.

Nate: I’ve been dealing with some of those same long-term consequences after my dealings with ashland. For the longest time, I felt suckered. After I found out ashland lied to me about being sick, i thought he chose to exploit me because I’m weak. But that’s not true. I’m not weak. I’m ambitious. And ashland saw that. And you know what? There’s nothing wrong with that. With so many nourishing shades,

Nick: There’s absolutely nothing wrong with ambition, nate. Within reason, you know? You don’t want it to be, uh, malicious or predatory. When that happens, people can sink their claws into anyone or anything, the old and the young, the weak and the strong. Then it turns malicious, whether you intended it to or not.

Nate: Mm. Fair enough. I put it all behind me anyway. It took some time, but I let go of all of my animosity towards ashland.

Nick: Good for you, man.

Nate: I hope victoria has moved on, as well.

Nick: Oh, yeah. She’s killing it, you know, completely focused on running newman. She was born to do that job.

Nate: I don’t know what role I’m destined to play in the business world. I’m still trying to figure out what it is I’m supposed to be doing with my life.

Nick: Things aren’t cool at chancellor-winters?

Nate: [ Chuckles ] Let’s just say I’m questioning a lot of things right now.

Nick: Well, I’m sure you’re gonna, you know, find your path. You’ll carve out a niche for yourself.

Nate: I don’t know about that.

Nick: Well, nate, if things don’t work out at chancellor-winters, you know there’s always other things you can do. Who knows? Maybe you end up at newman someday.

Nate: Thank you for your confidence in me, nick. I really appreciate it. Um, but, you know, I think things are going to start to turn around for me very soon.

[ “Unforgettable” playing ]

Victor: Baby, you’re not normally this uptight before a trip.

Nikki: Well, this trip is different.

Unforgettable, too

Victor: I mean, I know you’re gonna meet this deacon sharpe character. Show him how strong and tough you have become, okay?

Nikki: Yes, I — I plan on that. It’s just gonna be hard, though. I think I’ve been in denial about that.

Victor: Look, baby, why are you still upset about that after all this time?

Nikki: [ Sighs ] I don’t know. I mean, I was confident when i first made the decision to confront him, but — I don’t know — I think my conversation with victoria kind of shook me. I mean, I am concerned about the negative memories that this meeting will bring up, but not just for what they might do to me…but to us.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Adam: Thank you.

Sally: [ Sighs ] So, what is it that couldn’t wait till tomorrow to talk about?

Adam: [ Sighs ] I don’t know if I had anything specific in mind. It wasn’t anything urgent or anything. I just —

Sally: Adam — adam, I have a really big day tomorrow.

Adam: I miss you.

Sally: Please don’t make me regret letting you in here.

Adam: Look, I’m — I’m sorry. What happened at the pool bar — I don’t know if I overstepped or I was picking up on a vibe that wasn’t there.

Sally: [ Scoffs ] It still isn’T.

Adam: I moved too quickly, and I apologize.

Sally: You should not have moved at all.

Adam: Look, I know that i blew it with you in every way possible. But the fact is, I haven’t stopped loving you. And I don’t want to let you go, sally.

Moving forward with node-

positive breast cancer

Elena: Nick. Hey.

Nick: Hey, elena. I was just, uh, talking to your man in there. I think he’s going through something.

Elena: Oh. Uh, thanks for the heads-up.

Nick: Yeah. Good luck.

Elena: Nate. Everything okay?

Nate: [ Breathes deeply ] I quit.

Elena: What?

Nate: I left my job at chancellor-winters.

Elena: Okay. Wow. Uh, the last time we talked about it, you said you were gonna to stay and try to work things out.

Nate: It was spontaneous. No notice and, uh, not on the best terms.

Elena: Nate. What happened?

Nate: More of the same. Devon admonishes me like a child, doesn’t give me credit, doesn’t trust me. He says I need to be a team player, but it doesn’t seem like he wants me on his team. And I couldn’t take it anymore.

[ Scoffs ] Even when lily and billy agree with me, devon’s need to control the situation surfaces. So I constantly have to acquiesce or not have a say at all. And this time, lily insisted we stay in the room and try to figure things out. And you know what? That made it easier for everyone, and I walked out.

Elena: [ Sighs ] Nate, I was hoping you would at least keep your familial connections intact.

Nate: You weren’t there, elena. Devon did not give me a choice. And honestly, it’s not up to me alone to keep the peace.

Jack: For you.

Diane: Thank you. That’s exactly what I need.

Jack: Oh, I aim to please.

Diane: Mm.

Jack: So, what upset you today?

Diane: Oh, it was nothing.

Jack: Well, it had to be something if you mentioned it.

Diane: Things just got a little crazy at the office, but you don’t need to know the details.

Jack: Is something going on at marchetti I should know about?

Diane: Oh, no, no. The work is good. It’s just…some of the people. Or, should I say, one person.

Jack: I see.

Diane: I’ve tried, jack. I have. But being at the same company with phyllis is very challenging.

Jack: Sometimes we have to work alongside people with whom we do not see eye to eye.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Jack: The secret is to focus on the job. That’s the reason you’re there. The more focused you are, the easier it is to block out any interference with your goals.. I can handle phyllis. I can handle anything she dishes out. I’m not intimidated by her. I just hate the pressure that it puts on kyle and summer. They shouldn’t have to — to worry about their mothers in constant conflict at the office. Maybe me working for marchetti was a mistake.

Victor: You know, sweetheart, I think our relationship is so strong right now — and has been for a while — that I don’t care what deacon sharpe will come up with. He’s not gonna affect it. But I’m concerned about how your visiting him and meeting with him will affect you.

Nikki: I don’t like the person that I was back then. You and I would go out of our way to hurt each other over and over. We’d make decisions on hurt feelings and misinformation. It was just a terrible time in my life. And deacon sharpe was front and center.

Victor: I know. I love you. Lots of ups and downs then, okay? A lot of things that affected our relationship. You know, if there’s one thing i could do again, it is go back in time, erase all the pain that I’ve caused you.

Nikki: I know. The feeling is mutual.

Victor: But, having said that, if you feel so trepidatious about your trip to california, then why the hell don’t you stay here?

Nikki: No, victor, I have to go. I mean, I know seeing him is going to be very unpleasant, but he is the only one who has information that I need.

Victor: Oh. About that damn diane jenkins?

Nikki: Yes. Damn diane jenkins. You know, back when she was “killed,” I thought that deacon was trying to help me avoid jail time for a crime that I didn’t commit. Come to find out there was no murder and deacon knew about it the entire time.

Sally: I did not need to hear that right now.

Adam: Look, sally, why don’t you sit with me and we can figure this out?

Sally: No. I prefer to stand. Thank you very much.

Adam: You know, since we’ve been apart…I’ve seen you, sally. I’ve seen how strong you are, how well you are doing.

Sally: And you hate that?

Adam: I love that. Seeing you succeed makes me think I made the right decision. I mean, it was wrong to do it unilaterally. I know that was a mistake. I know that now.

Sally: Oh, god. Finally. I mean, it took you long enough.

Adam: Look, when we were together, we worked so well together personally and professionally. I mean, we supported each other in a way that nobody else has supported either one of us before. And I’m committed to getting that back.

Sally: Adam —

Adam: With both of us at different companies now, you at newman media and me at jabot, we can avoid the work/family conflict. I mean, that was always the problem.

Sally: So, what? Now, in your mind, we go right back to being together again?

Adam: No. No, I meant when I said. I — I want to earn your forgiveness… and maybe someday earn your love again. Come on, sally. We have so much more potential. I know you’ve realized that I’m a jerk, and maybe I am beyond forgiveness… but are you really ready to throw away what we had? Ughh!

“The young and the restless”

will continue. Can you imagine a world where moms and kids agreed

Sally: Your timing could not be worse.

Adam: Really?

Sally: Yes.

[ Exhales heavily ] I… I shouldn’t even tell you this right now because you — you don’t deserve my honesty at this point.

Adam: Uh, well… what’s going on?

Sally: [ Breathing heavily ] Earlier today, I made an error in judgment.

[ Sighs ] I can’t even believe this happened. I missed a very important meeting because I was at the rooftop bar with you.

Adam: [ Exhales sharply ]

Sally: I prioritized spending time with you, the man who broke my heart and caused me so much pain, and I neglected my job and my own ambition.

Adam: Sally, I — I had no idea.

Sally: Yeah, of course. How could you? I mean, why would you pay attention to anything that doesn’t center around you?

Adam: That’s not entirely fair.

Sally: It’s almost like — it’s almost like missing that meeting wasn’t entirely an accident. It’s like part of my brain wanted to believe that the meeting was actually later so that I could spend time with you. Being with you is intoxicating and apparently prevents me from thinking rationally.

Adam: And I feel the same way about you.

Sally: Yeah, but that’s not a good thing, adam. We can’t act like irresponsible teenagers. We are adults. We have responsibilities. When I was at that rooftop bar with you, it’s like I had this nagging feeling that — that — that I was missing something, and instead of looking into it, I just ignored it. And I chose instead to hang out with the man who shows me little respect.

Adam: Yes, I admit my treatment of you has been unacceptable.

Sally: Yes, it has. And I have continued to put up with it and — and neglect my own well-being. It’s like you’re an addiction. It’s not healthy. It’s toxic. And letting you in, letting you get to me was a huge mistake.

Victor: To be very honest with you, I would love to take care of that bastard deacon sharpe all by myself, if you’d let me.

Nikki: It’s not your fight, victor. It’s mine.

Victor: But, darling, that’s not quite true. That man has done a lot of damage to you, to me, to our family, okay? I’ll just — I’ll ride on the plane with you.

Nikki: I know you would, but I need to do this on my own. And even though I have reservations about this trip, you and I are in a better place than we’ve ever been. I’m not worried about us at all. And there is nothing deacon or anybody else can do to take anything from us.

Victor: But what if someone tried, sweetheart?

Nikki: Let them.

Victor: Good. I like that. And they better not.

Elena: Honestly, I’m relieved you left chancellor-winters. You’ve been so unhappy.

Nate: Mm. I’m glad you understand why i left.

Elena: Yeah, and I am sure a better opportunity will present itself soon. When one door closes —

Nate: Another door opens. And I’m pretty sure I know where that leads.

Elena: What do you mean? Do you have another job lined up?

Nate: Not exactly.

Elena: What are you saying?

Nate: I think I’ve figured out a way to make it clear to devon and everyone else at chancellor-winters just how capable and forward-thinking I really am.

Elena: [ Sighs ] I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Adam: I think — I think you’re right, okay? My clumsy attempts to reconnect with you — they have been selfish and they have been poorly conceived. But there is something between us, sally. You’ve said so yourself.

Sally: But things have changed.

[ Sighs ]

Adam: Look, I’m sorry. I am sorry for monopolizing your schedule today. That was inconsiderate of me. But our time together was not a waste. It was an investment in us, in our future. And I know that you feel the same way.

Sally: There are a lot of things that I need to invest in right now. And unfortunately… you cannot be one of them. You understand business. There are assets and liabilities. Right now, you are a huge liability to me, with no foreseeable return on investment.

Adam: You’re speaking to me in a language I understand.

Sally: I know. I have learned some things. Running a media company is very different than running my little fashion house. I no longer get to set my own schedule. I have a lot resting on my shoulders, and not just with the company, but also the livelihood of all of its employees. Focusing on my love life right now is not something that I can do. I mean, just having a conversation with you has negatively affected my work. I just need to clear my head and refocus.

Adam: I see. I see. So, is this what you and nick were talking about in his office? Losing your focus?

Jack: I disagree with your conclusion that you should leave marchetti. Why give up now? Kyle wants you there. If the whole goal is to build the bond between mother and son, this is the way to do it. Stick to your plan.

Diane: [ Sighs ] Well, getting closer to kyle has been wonderful, but today —

Jack: You said yourself i don’t need to know the details of what happened. Look, I have faith that kyle will make the right decision. You should, too.

Diane: I do.

Jack: So let him make the decision. It’s what’s best for the company. It’s what’s best for strengthening the bond between mother and son.

[ Mug thuds ]

Diane: You’ve become very wise.

Jack: Maybe it just seems that way relative to how unwise I was in my youth.

Diane: [ Laughs ] Well, thank you for your advice. You know, things are a little complicated, but I think you’re right.

Jack: I think maybe at this stage in our lives, we should give in to the idea that life is, if nothing else, complicated.

Diane: Yeah, that’s an understatement. And I want to stay at marchetti. I want to prove that I’m up to the challenge. And it’s not just for kyle anymore.

Jack: No?

Diane: No. It’s for you, too.

Nikki: You know, even though I have apprehension about this trip, I think that it will be very productive. If there is anything illegal in diane’s past, deacon will know about that. He was instrumental in her schemes here, so he’s sure to know something about her time in los angeles.

Victor: But, sweetheart, why don’t you allow me to send my team to california and bring that bastard back to genoa city?

Nikki: What do you mean? Kidnap him?

[ Glass thuds ]

Victor: Well, I didn’t say that, but, you know, offer him a first-class round trip.

Nikki: Victor, you are not going to talk me out of this trip to L.A.

Victor: You are so stubborn. Okay. I give in. You’re going to california to find out from deacon sharpe all you can about diane jenkins so we can finally send that woman the hell out of town, right?

Sally: What nick and i discussed is of no concern to you. It was a business matter.

Adam: I’m just asking to make sure they’re not going to fire you, sally. Missing a meeting might be all they need.

Sally: I really don’t want to get…into what happened with nick, especially not with you.

Adam: What does that mean, especially not with me?

Sally: Because you don’t work for the company, obviously. In fact, you know what? I-I think it’s just best if — if we avoided each other right now.

Adam: I don’t think that’s necessary.

Sally: You know what? Just finish your drink, go back to your room, and I think we should just call this goodbye for now.

Adam: You’re dismissing me?

Sally: Well, I’m — I’m asking you to leave.

Adam: Alright. It’s your room, your rules.

[ Glass clanks ]

[ Sniffs ]

[ Breathes deeply ] Look, I know that you are saying the things that you feel you need to say, the things to get you through the pain that I have caused you, but… I’m asking you to listen to your heart again. I know how deeply you feel, even when you do your best to pretend like you don’T. It’s one of the things I love about you. I realize I hurt you, sally. But I meant every word that i said today. This entire time, I thought that I was protecting you. But I realize how stupid that was. I was wrong, and I am aware of that. And through the whole thing… I never stopped loving you. And I don’t think that love went away for you any more than it did for me. This book has helped me reach so many young homeowners

Elena: Nate. No. You cannot do this.

Nate: Why not?

Elena: It’s a horrible plan.

Nate: Which part?

Elena: All of it.

Nate: I can’t believe this. Once again, you are not supporting me.

Elena: Of course I support you, but sometimes that means letting you know when you’re making a mistake.

Nate: I am building a new career. Unfortunately, that’s not always gonna be easy. You were the one who said i should walk away from chancellor-winters in the first place.

Elena: Not like this.

Nate: Okay, so you don’t like the way I’m taking a step back? The truth is, you never wanted me to leave medicine, so i shouldn’t be surprised you’re hesitant now.

Elena: That is not what this is about, and you know it. I just find it extremely hard to believe that you going through with this plan is gonna get you where you need to go.

Nate: I don’t expect you to always agree with me, but I need you to understand where I am coming from. I honestly have no other viable options.

Elena: Nate, I have been by your side on this path from the beginning, and I have been willing to follow you down this journey, wherever it may lead, but this is going too far. You would be compromising your integrity, and that shouldn’t be a part of business, especially a family business.

Nate: Everything I am doing is justified after what devon put me through.

Elena: I don’t think that’s true. This is not just about you and devon. Other people could be affected. This is wrong. And I want to believe, in your heart, you know it’s wrong. Come on, nate. You need to think this through.

Jack: In what way does your desire to stay at marchetti involve me?

Diane: I’ll tell you. Remember when I said that i hoped that we could become friends?

Jack: Mm-hmm.

Diane: Well, I take pride in us getting closer to that goal. I mean, come on. Look at us. Could you have imagined us sitting here like this a couple months ago?

Jack: No, I definitely could not.

Diane: No.

Jack: But this is nice.

Diane: It is nice. And I do take pride in how far we’ve come. But maybe I shouldn’t since pride is one of the deadly sins.

Jack: [ Laughs ] I think we have all fallen prey to pride.

Diane: [ Laughs ]

Jack: I want you to know i truly admire your determination to prove you’ve changed.

Diane: Thank you. I probably should get home.

Jack: Oh, okay.

Diane: Yeah, I have another big day at the office tomorrow.

Jack: Oh! I had no idea how late it was. Look, if — if you don’t feel like driving, you can stay in one of the guest rooms.

Diane: I should probably go. But thank you for your hospitality, jack. Good night.

Jack: Good night.

Victor: I will have my security team follow you every step while you’re in L.A.

Nikki: I told victoria you would insist on that.

Victor: You bet.

Nikki: But, darling, please make sure they’re discreet. I don’t want them to spook deacon.

Victor: Sweetheart, at the sign of any trouble, they will be there for you, alright?

Nikki: I’m sure it won’t come to that. But I’m glad for the extra sense of security.

[ Both smooch ]

Victor: After what happened to victoria, we can’t be careful enough, my darling. And you know damn well family means everything to me.

Nikki: That’s why I love you.

[ Smooches ]

Nick: Vick, you here?

[ Sighs ]

[ Cellphone vibrating ]

Sally: [ Sighs ]

[ Sniffles ]

Adam: Something important?

Sally: Huh?

Adam: The text.

Sally: [ Sniffles ] It’s none of your concern.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] Maybe not, but I can’t help but be curious.

Sally: Adam, you are looking for answers and chances that i just can’t give you. I need time. And space. [ Sighs ] So, you know what? I think — I think it’s best that you just go.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Sally: [ Sniffles ]

[ Door slams ]

[ Exhales sharply ]

Sally: Well, how about that? I’ll tell you what. Let’s make a deal. I won’t stop fighting for what i want…if you won’T.

Victoria: Well, that would be my final offer. Take it or leave it.

Lily: I mean, come on. $3 million isn’t even in the ballpark.

Victoria: Well, I understand that’s your argument, but that doesn’t mean I have to accept it.

Lily: You’ll have to come up by about 50% in order for me to even consider it.

Victoria: Well, actually, uh, you need us more than we need you, so that’s why I’m holding firm. Alright, then. We have a deal. Congratulations on being in business with newman enterprises.

Lily: You know what? Why don’t you get back to me when you’re more serious? Okay. That’s better. Put together a proposal and send it over. Sounds like you had a very lucrative call.

Victoria: Yes, it was. And yours?

Lily: Yeah, went really well. Amazing how much business gets done out of the office and after hours.

Victoria: Oh, I know. Well, sometimes this all makes me feel very freeing, but then sometimes it feels like the phone is glued to my ear.

Lily: The life of a ceo has its downsides, but in the end, I do love it.

Victoria: Yeah. Me too.

[ Chuckles ]

Lily: [ Clears throat ] Um, in non-work-related news, i think billy will reach out to you about the kids visiting this weekend.

Victoria: Oh. Perfect.

Lily: Okay. Great. Um, I’ll see you later.

Victoria: Uh, lily, before you go, there’s — there’s something that I — I wanted to say to you, um, mogul to mogul.

Devon: Hey.

Nate: Hey.

Devon: Hang on a second. Are we just not talking? Is that what’s happening? I’m here and you’re here. We can have a face-to-face if you’d like.

Nate: I’m calling it a day. Let’s do this tomorrow.

Devon: I’d really rather not prolong this.

Nate: Fine. If you want to do this now, we can do it now.

Devon: Good.

Jack: This is not like you.

Victor: What’s not?

Jack: Giving up. I don’t believe for one second that you’re willing to walk away from adam. He is your son. This is when you call me out for claiming to know how you feel about your son, when you tell me I couldn’t possibly understand the situation the way you do.

Victor: You can’t understand, not this time, man. You know, fathers and sons often have difficult relationships. I was very, very proud to call adam my son. But he’s also caused me a lot of heartache. But I must say that I have had nothing but good intentions where he is concerned. Of course, that applies to my other children, as well. Anyway…

[ Inhales deeply ] Not easy being a father sometimes, is it?

Jack: Well, we certainly try.

Victor: Yeah. And by the way, my apologies, okay? I’ve been remiss in conveying my condolences in regard to keemo. This is the sound of better breathing.

Lily: If you’re about to offer me some helpful advice, thank you, but it’s not very necessary. Chancellor-winters is doing really great, actually. We’re on a roll.

Victoria: I know that. I’m actually well aware. I do keep track of local business news, especially when someone makes a move as big as buying the grand phoenix.

Lily: [ Laughs ] Thank you. We are very excited about that acquisition.

Victoria: And you should be. That’s what I wanted to say. Congratulations.

Lily: Wow. Thank you.

Victoria: You’re welcome. Look, I’m really sorry that things got unnecessarily tense between us for a while. I was dealing with ashland, and, honestly, I feel like the stress of that just — just kind of affected every part of my life. But I’ve put that behind me now, and I feel like I’m starting a new chapter and getting a fresh start. And I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate you as a peer. I mean, you and I — we’re part of a very exclusive club, female ceos [Chuckles] Which thankfully is growing. And I just think that we need to recognize and value each other whenever and wherever we can.

Lily: Thank you for saying that. And I am very honored to be a part of the club. Maybe we should have, like, a secret handshake.

Victoria: Yes, we should definitely come up with one of those.

Lily: And I think congratulations are in order for you, too. I’ve heard of newman’s very impressive acquisitions.

Victoria: Oh. Well, I didn’t realize that the word was out about those. I guess I’m not the only one with my ear to the ground.

Lily: No.

Victoria: Thank you very much for your kind words. And, um, yes, I guess our company is on a roll right now, too. And of course I would like to take all of the credit for it, but we don’t do it alone, do we? It’s important — very, very important — to have a team that you can rely on.

Nate: I’m sure you want to kick this off by giving me some sort of lecture? Put me in my place?

Devon: No, that’s the last thing I want to do. But here’s another example of you jumping to conclusions about me.

Nate: So, how do you want to do this?

Devon: I want you to say what’s on your mind and get everything off your chest that you’ve been hanging onto because the back-and-forth we’ve been having has to stop.

Nate: That is the first thing we’ve agreed on in a while. Frankly, it’s been rather strange having to keep things so artificially professional. It would be refreshing just to speak bluntly with my cousin, with nobody else around and no one to prove anything to.

Devon: I’m — I’m all for that. So, here’s your opportunity. Go for it.

Nate: I’d like for you to finally admit what your big problem is.

Devon: What makes you think that I’m the one with the problem?

Nate: Ever since I took this job, you’ve rejected every single idea I’ve ever had. Doesn’t matter what it is or what the merits might be. Before the thought is fully out of my mouth, you’re telling me why it can’t work. And that’s been from day one, starting with the launch party, which was actually a huge success.

Devon: Well, you do know that you still haven’t lived up to those 50 podcasts that you promised that, right?

Nate: I would have reached that goal if you would have approved more of the series i submitted.

Devon: They weren’t all ready to be approved.

Nate: Uh-huh. And you never gave me a specific reason why. So now, in your head, my entire worth and the company’s reputation is riding on producing that number.

Devon: Well, I’m not really sure how you’re jumping to that exaggeration because no one’s basing your worth off of one thing that you did. And I’m not gonna apologize for wanting our company to live up to its word, and it’s a word that you put out into the world.

Nate: You’re never gonna apologize for anything.

Devon: That’s just it, nate. I’m not really clear on what you think that I need to apologize for. Because you bring me your ideas. I don’t tell you to not speak. I listen, and then I make decisions about what you tell me. That’s how business works.

Nate: But business does involve keeping an open mind and seeing the potential in things. Take my music festival idea. I’ve bent over backwards to answer all of your concerns, and you still found a way to shoot it down. And I want to know why. What’s really going on here, huh? Is giving me a hard “no” some kind of thrill for you? Or is the real reason you want a yes man in my position, someone with zero ideas of their own?

Devon: No. I’ll tell you exactly what i want, nate. I want someone who’s willing to learn and who believes that i know what I’m talking about and doesn’t run around here with a “screw what my boss says” attitude.

Nate: [ Scoffs ] So, that’s how you see me.

Devon: That’s what you’ve displayed to us from day one. Before the launch, you, me, lily, and billy — we all discussed exactly how much and how little we were gonna share. And you took that, and you threw it out the window and said, “you know what? I’m gonna do whatever I want to do.” I’m not the only one who sees it. Do you think jill was oblivious to the way you just stormed out of that video meeting? I mean, what a first impression to make on the co-owner of the company.

[ Doorknob rattles ]

Adam: Sally? I saw your car was still in the garage. Are you in there?

[ Doorknob rattles ]

[ Exhales sharply ] I was on an antidepressant,

Jack: Thank you for your condolences.

Victor: Well, the loss of a child is something no parent should have to suffer. I’m sorry you had to go through that.

Jack: It was indeed a heartache.

Victor: Yeah. You know, I recall now a conversation you and I had last time, one of the few times you and I had a drink together, and you were talking about regretting certain mistakes you may have made in regard to raising your children. You were talking about keemo then, weren’t you?

Jack: I was. And the words you shared with me that day really hit home. Despite our years of animosity and conflict, they meant a lot to me. Thank you.

Victor: I appreciate that. I’ve realized over the years that nothing is more important than family.

Jack: It is the one thing you and I have always agreed on. I believe that with everything in me. It is why I do not understand your stance where adam’s concerned.

Victor: I’d rather not talk about that.

Jack: Okay.

Victor: However, talking about family, I ran into your granddaughter, allie. What a beautiful young lady.

Jack: Yes, she is.

Victor: My goodness.

Jack: In the short time i have known her, she has brought nothing but joy to my life.

Victor: And you know that my grandson noah is quite smitten with her.

Jack: Yeah, we may have another abbott-newman couple on our hands.

Victor: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. I guess I can’t control everything.

Jack: Much as you may try.

Victor: Mm.

Jack: Look, we figured it out with summer and kyle. Who knows? Maybe if our grandchildren and children are pairing up, we’ll have another generation of abbott-newmans walking around again.

Victor: We haven’t gotten there yet, okay?

Jack: [ Chuckles ]

Victor: So don’t put the cart before the horse, alright?

Adam: Has hell frozen over?

Jack: That may be. I am having what could actually be called a pleasant conversation with your father.

Adam: I’m guessing it’s not about my new position at jabot. My dad would never be in good spirits about that.

Jack: In fact, we did talk about you. Among other things. The meaning of family. The gift a son can be to his father.

[ Both exhale heavily ]

Nick: I’m hungry. You want to get something to eat?

Sally: Sure.

Nate: What exactly did you tell jill? Because I am sure you gave her an earful.

Devon: Oh, yeah? You’re so sure that I did? I had every right to say something, didn’t I?

Nate: Did you tell her why i was frustrated? Or did you say I was a problem, not a team player, even though you’re the one who never lets me off the bench?

Devon: Your name never came out of my mouth, nate. I didn’t bring you up. I had nothing good to say, so i didn’t say anything at all. Lily tried to play off what you did, but I’m sure jill was sitting there thinking the same thing I’m thinking, and that’s, what are you getting out of all this? ‘Cause I don’t think it’s to help the company.

Nate: That’s funny — because from where I was sitting right here, it seemed like jill was really into my ideas.

Devon: Yeah.

Nate: And at the very least, she appreciated the healthy debate, unlike some people.

Devon: Tell me what’s healthy, though, about your singular focus on only your ideas and how you want to do things. It doesn’t work like that. You’re like a damn surgeon with a god complex, where you think you’re above everyone else and you don’t have to listen, okay? It’s not gonna fly here.

Nate: You’re really throwing my surgery career in my face right now? Is that how you doing it, huh? What? You want to hit me? Is that what you want? Because, fair warning, I won’t hold back this time.

Devon: So, this is obviously what this is all really about. You can’t take a punch, right?

Nate: A sucker punch, a sucker punch. Let’s run that back.

Devon: Run it — we’re in an office.

Nate: Let’s run that back.

Devon: What are you talking about?!

Nate: No. What do you me–

Billy: That is enough.


Adam: My dad was waxing on about what a gift I am to him? I find that one hard to believe. I know he is deeply disappointed in me.

Jack: I would never presume to speak for victor newman, but he did say a number of kind things about you. I was just sharing with him that I thought your move to jabot was the right change at the right time.

Adam: Yeah, well, I already know how he feels about it.

Victor: It’s a huge mistake, son, that both of you will regret.

Adam: Mm-hmm. I see. You were gonna tell jack how much he’s going to regret hiring me. Now, that I will believe.

Victor: As a matter of fact, what I told jack is that you and I are done. Last time we talked, you thought it was the best idea for you to move on, since I have no control over your life, over your actions, since I cannot convince you that the best place for you is your family and to be part of my company. So, you move on, son.

Jack: There is no reason to deal in ultimatums here.

Victor: You will regret this step. I promise you. But good luck to you. Thank you for the tequila. I hope this didn’t break your bank.

Lily: It’s definitely important to build a solid team, which I think we’ve actually done at chancellor-winters.

Victoria: Well, I don’t mean to overstep. I just remember what it was like working side by side with billy. I mean, most of the time it was good, but I didn’t have him simultaneously podcasting his opinion to the masses. I mean, that must be challenging.

Lily: Actually, he, uh — he stepped away from the podcast. He’s focusing solely on his coo job.

Victoria: Oh. I thought he was thoroughly enjoying spouting off in a public forum.

Lily: [ Laughs ] No, he was. He was. But he did some soul-searching and realized that, you know, i think it was just taking up too much of his time. So he’s back on the path, ready to shine.

Victoria: Well, I always wish him the best. You know, I never questioned my decision to work with my brother and my mom, but I understand what it’s like being close to the people who are also your colleagues. It has its own complications.

Lily: Yeah. I’m really sorry for what you went through with ashland. I can’t even imagine how difficult that must have been.

Victoria: It was a lot. But I was happy to have my family around me helping me through that, both personally and professionally.

Lily: Yeah. I’m sure. No, I-I also am very happy to have my family around me, too, because, like newman, you know, we’re also a family company. So, we have issues, obviously, but we keep it professional. So it’s all good.

Billy: What the hell is going on?

Devon: Oh, well, he’s wanting to get into it and have a fight in the office. You know, real professional stuff.

Nate: I have had it with you acting like you’re taking the high road, like you’re some level-headed executive forced to deal with the newbie. Well, I may be relatively new to this, but that doesn’t mean i have no worth. You don’t get to play hero when all you’ve done is hand me a meaningless title with zero power to do anything.

Devon: Nate, for whatever reason, man, you just can’t get it through your head that you’re not a one-man band and that you have collaborators to work with and bosses.

Nate: And you get off on being a boss. You think I have an ego? Yours is out of control.

Billy: Okay, I don’t think any of this is helping, alright? And I know that it’s late, but I’m not the only one left here, and if I can hear you in my hall, that means the whole floor can hear you guys.

Nate: Let them hear. After tonight, it won’t be a problem. No more fighting, no more yelling. I’m done with you, and I am done with this place. I quit.

Adam: Well, so much for no ultimatums. That sounded pretty final. Then again, everything victor says sounds that way, huh?

Jack: I’m sorry, adam.

Adam: I’m not. I’m actually the one who suggested we should part ways. I just… I hope it sticks this time. But he probably won’t be able to restrain himself for long.

Jack: I have never claimed to understand or be able to read the mind of victor newman. But I can tell you this — that man is in pain over this latest break with you.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Jack: And I continue to sense, despite the bravado, you’re in pain, too.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Can I get a scotch? Can you make it a double? I’m jonathan lawson

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Billy: Hold on a second. I don’t think you meant what you just said.

Nate: I most certainly did. I quit.

Billy: Okay, well, I think you need to take a breath and not make a hasty decision.

Nate: I assure you, I am not. I’ve considered this for a while now.

Billy: [ Sighs ] Look, you guys, whatever’s going on between you, clearly it spiraled into something else, alright? But let’s not blow it out of proportion right now. You guys are adults. You should be able to talk about this.

Devon: Billy, talking things out doesn’t really work when no one’s listening, so…

Nate: Exactly.

Lily: Hey. What’s going on?

Devon: Hey.

Lily: Hey.

Devon: Nate just quit.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] That is a polite way of saying I couldn’t take any more of devon’s B.S.

Billy: Alright.

Lily: Wha–

Billy: Well, I’ve tried to mediate, but this is above my pay grade. So, uh, this is about family at this point.

Lily: Yeah. Um… yeah. Thank you. I’ll see you at home.

Billy: I really, honestly hope that you all can keep the peace.

Lily: [ Sighs ] My god, I am really getting tired of this.

Nate: So am I. That’s why I’m leaving.

Lily: No, you’re not. ‘Cause you might be his coo, but I do not accept your resignation. No, the three of us — we’re gonna stay here until we work this out.

Devon: Okay, well, I hope you’re prepared to be here all damn night, so…

Lily: Yeah, I am prepared ’cause I am willing to do whatever it takes. You guys, come on. I get your frustrations, okay? I can even see both sides of your argument. At the end of the day, all you want is what’s best for chancellor-winters. You’re just going about it in different ways. But come on. We’re family. Right? We have issues, we work them out, and we become stronger on the other side. That’s what we do. And who taught us that? My dad. And if he were here, he would not stand for this. So, we’re gonna stay here until we work it out and we find common ground.

Nate: Lily, thank you for everything you’ve done. I really appreciate it. And I believe in family just as much as neil did. But this particular situation feels untenable. I cannot see a way to make it work.

Devon: It’s not that difficult. I’m only asking for respect.

Nate: Me too. And I’m clearly not gonna get it.

Devon: Okay, well, uh… I don’t know what to do. I’m tired of trying to satisfy this guy. So I think that we’ve probably reached the end of the road.

Victor: [ Sighs heavily ]

Adam: Hey.

Nick: Hey.

Sally: Hi there.

Adam: You guys working late? You, uh, want join me for a drink?

Sally: We would, but we still have to go over a few things.

Nick: Yeah, it’s a work dinner, killing two birds with one stone.

Adam: I, uh — I actually came by to see you earlier, but you weren’t in your office.

Sally: I was upstairs in nick’s office.

Nick: Yeah. Meeting. Marketing issue.

Adam: You know, I just realized I haven’t eaten. Do you mind if I join you two? I still practice for what’s next.

Billy: [ Sighs heavily ]

Victoria: Well, it looks like you’ve had a trying day.

Billy: Is it that obvious?

Victoria: I can usually tell your moods. I mean, you have it written all over your face.

Billy: Mm. Can I sit?

Victoria: Go ahead.

Billy: [ Sighs, groans ]

Victoria: So, what’s wrong?

Billy: What isn’t?

Victoria: Oh. More than a bad day.

Billy: Well, you know when it feels like there’s an endless line of problems and issues and they all have to be dealt with at one time?

Victoria: You mean life?

Billy: Yeah. But can’t it just relax every once in a while in the minute? Like, I mean, can’t it just go smoothly every once in a while?

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Sounds like, now that he’s left his recording booth, the grinning soul needs a new outlet to spew his truth.

Lily: I refuse to give up on what we’re building here, and i am not gonna let you quit.

Devon: Lily, I really think it’s for the best.

Nate: [ Scoffs ] You heard him.

Lily: Oh, my god. Do you guys have any idea that we are on the cusp of something huge here? Do you know the vote of confidence that jill had to have to want to take the company public? I mean, come on. We can do amazing things, and i want to see what we can accomplish. So let’s go on this journey together.

Devon: Wait a second. You’re seriously considering jill’s proposal?

Lily: Yes. Of course I am. I’d be crazy not to. I mean, think of the doors this could open for the company. And all we have to do to move forward is present a united front. And that includes nate.

Nate: Lily, I am moved by your faith in me. But it’s clear that absolutely nothing’s gonna change on devon’s end. So, as much as I want to stay a part of chancellor-winters, you’re trying to convince the wrong person, and that tells me everything I need to know. I’m done. Goodbye.

Sally: Mmm. I didn’t realize how hungry i was. These appetizers were great.

Adam: Mm. You guys want to order some more? Seems like you’ve built up quite the appetite. Although I do remember a lot of nights at newman media when you forgot to eat ’cause we were so…engrossed in work.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] Mm-hmm. Yeah, sometimes I’m just so focused on things that everything else can fall by the wayside. Like tonight. It was like work, work, work.

Adam: Being a real taskmaster, huh?

Nick: I’d say she’s self-motivated.

Adam: Mm.

[ Glass thuds ] I would agree.

Sally: Everything is a give-and-take. Anyway, um, things at newman are going really well. We have a lot of forward momentum.

Nick: Yeah.

Adam: Well, I’m sure you’re continuing to do amazing work there. Although I did have a few questions about the romantic-advice video channel and online column that you green-lit, but it’s a big hit.

Nick: Yeah, it’s doing huge numbers.

Adam: You know what people want, sally. You have a knack for it.

Nick: You know what? Why don’t we take a break from the business talk?

Sally: Sure. Yeah. Let’s cleanse and refresh our minds talking about something else.

Adam: Okay. New topic.

Nick: The weather? Sports!

Sally: [ Chuckles ] You sound like a newscast. Oh, by the way, that actually reminds me — I want to pitch a new platform to you whenever we get back to…work.

[ Chuckles ] Damn it.

Victor: [ Grunting ]

[ Grunting continues ]

[ Grunting continues ]

[ Grunting continues ]

[ Breathing heavily ]

[ Breathing deeply ]

Nate: Tequila soda, please.

[ Sighs ] Voicemail. Elena, it’s me. I need to talk. Um, meet me at society as soon as you can.

[ Footsteps approaching ] (Rose h) smoking caused my lung cancer.

Billy: You know I’m not doing the podcast anymore, right?

Victoria: Yes, I did hear that. And I’m surmising from your mood that your career move is not exactly the answer you were looking for.

Billy: [ Sighs ] There’s some internal conflict at chancellor-winters at the moment, and it’s reaching an excessive level. And I’m not a fan.

Victoria: Well, you do realize that a certain amount of drama will forever be a part of the business world.

Billy: I do realize that, yes, but it needs to be manageable.

[ Sighs ] And right now it’s affecting everything and it’s got the potential to sink the ship and i don’t want to see that happen. Right now, it’s more than a distraction. It’s a disruption. And I don’t know what to do about it. We’ve got two immovable forces going head to head, and something’s got to give.

Lily: I really hope that nate just cools off and changes his mind and comes back.

Devon: Oh, I wouldn’t hold your breath. It’s been building to this, and I’m sure he’s had plenty of time to give it thought.

Lily: God. I was trying to do everything i could to convince him to stay.

Devon: Yeah. I noticed. I was surprised that you used the public offering card.

Lily: Well, yeah, I was willing to say anything to win him over.

Devon: So then you’re not seriously considering jill’s proposal?

Lily: No, I’m completely serious.

Devon: Okay. I was under the impression that when you said that you needed to take time to talk about it with me, that was your polite way of saying no.

Lily: No. Look, I mean, I had my doubts initially, but after looking at the numbers and doing the research, my new mission now is to convince you that this is the right thing to do.

Imani: Hey. Are you okay? You look furious.

Nate: I am, and I’m not gonna try and hide.

Imani: I don’t want you to, nate. You can always be yourself with me. Now, calm down and tell me what happened.

Nate: Listen, I, um — I know you want me to stick around chancellor-winters. I heard everything you said, and I believed a lot of it, that i should keep fighting, make a bold move.

Imani: I believe the word i used was “ruthless.”

Nate: Yeah, but, um, ultimately, I just cannot keep banging my head against the wall. And my argument earlier with devon just pushed me over the edge.

Imani: So, what did you do?

Nate: I walked away from chancellor-winters.

[ Both sigh ]

Nick: That was an interesting dinner.

Sally: Yeah. Wasn’t as big a disaster as it could have been.

Nick: That’s true.

Sally: Good night.

Nick: Good night, sally.

[ Computer keys clacking ]

[ Footsteps approaching ]

[ Knock on door ]

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Nick: I wasn’t sure you’d still be here. It’s after hours.

Sally: Well, I’m making up for lost time. There’s no way I was about to leave just because the sun went down. In spite of everything that happened, I’m determined to end today on a strong note.

Nick: Glad to hear it.

Sally: Yeah, I’m all about forward momentum, so this is me putting 100% effort into my job. Let there be no doubt that newman media is my number-one priority. I’m gonna prove to everyone that I belong in this chair.

Nick: Yeah… about that — we should talk.

Nikki: Oh, darling, you’re back. Welcome home.

Victoria: Oh, thank you.

Nikki: Mwah.

Victoria: I got in this afternoon, but we were both so busy at the office that we didn’t even cross paths. So I thought I’d stop by tonight so that we could catch up.

Nikki: Oh, um, is there a business matter we need to take care of?

Victoria: No, no, nothing like that at all. I, um — I was leaving work, and I noticed your e-mail that you plan on being out of the office tomorrow, and I was just wondering. What’s up?

Nikki: Oh, I decided at the last minute to go to L.A. And meet with ridge and eric forrester.

Victoria: Why?

Nikki: Well, kyle has told me he is planning a surprise for summer. He wants them to renew their vows here in town because a lot of people weren’t able to go to milan for their wedding. Isn’t that romantic?

Victoria: Yes, it is — very — but what does that have to do with you going to L.A.?

Nikki: I want forrester creations to design a special gown for summer as my gift.

Victoria: But why not just have one of lauren’s fashion designers do it? Or better yet, you could consult with the team at marchetti.

Nikki: Well, because it’s a surprise. I mean, we’d never be able to keep it a secret with all those people if summer works with them all. So, forrester will do a beautiful job.

Victoria: Yes, I know. Of course they will do a beautiful job. But why do I get the feeling that there’s something else going on here?

Nikki: I-I have no idea.

Victoria: I mean, if all you’re doing is meeting with eric and ridge, I mean, couldn’t you easily do that by phone or a video call? Instead, you’re clearing your very busy schedule, and you’re hopping on a plane for one meeting. Sorry, mom, I’m not buying it. I need you to tell me the truth. What is this trip really about?

Jack: Victor, you here to say hello or just to cast a dark shadow?

Victor: [ Chuckles ] Expecting someone?

Jack: No, I’m flying solo. Care to join me for a drink?

Victor: Sure.

Jack: I know abby keeps your favorite tequila in stock. I could get the first round started, though I doubt you’re going to want to toast my latest hire.

Victor: You’re right about that.

Kyle: [ Sighs ] Mm. I am happy to report harrison was tucked away in bed. Not asleep yet, but he’s chilling out with his favorite stuffed fox.

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Kyle: What are you working on?

Summer: I am looking at the proofs from tessa’s photo shoot, pictures from after she relaxed.

Kyle: Hmm. You mean the shots taken after adam left? For someone who just started working at jabot, I am already feeling the dark cloud of his presence.

Summer: Adam drives me crazy, too, but we promised to respect jack’s wishes. That means trying to stay positive. One way to do that is to not talk about adam at all unless it is absolutely necessary.

Kyle: Especially now, when we have so much to celebrate.

Summer: We do?

Kyle: Mm-hmm. Listen. Hear that?

Summer: What? [ Chuckles ]

Kyle: Beautiful, golden silence. Our boy is upstairs in bed. Nobody else is home.

Summer: Hmm.

Kyle: We have the whole place to ourselves.

Summer: I guess we do.

Kyle: Oh, imagine the possibilities.

Summer: My mind is going all sorts of places.

Kyle: Mm-hmm.

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Kyle: All we need is a little music.

[ Soft music plays ]

Summer: And a little wine. I’ll go get a bottle.

Kyle: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. There’s something I need to do first.

Summer: I guess the wine can wait.

Kyle: Mm-hmm.

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

[ Doorbell rings ]

Kyle: [ Sighs ] Hold that kiss.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Kyle: Mom. What are you…doing here?

Diane: I am livid. And it’s all because of phyllis.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Kyle: [ Sighs ] You know why I love halloween?

Diane: Summer, I hate to say this, but your mother is relentless. I swear, that woman —

Kyle: Okay, mom, just slow down, tell us what happened.

Diane: [ Scoffs ] Came across a document relating to marchetti home — A.K.A. The line that phyllis heads up. It was — it was an agreement with a subcontractor to create furniture for an outrageous sum! It sent up a huge red flag for me. It reeked of some sort of kickback scheme.

Summer: Wait, back up a minute. How did you come across it?

Diane: It was a file on my computer.

Summer: That doesn’t make any sense. You don’t have anything to do with the home division.

Diane: Exactly. Look, summer, you are not conniving like your mother. You don’t think the same way. But I knew right away what happened. Phyllis, the very savvy computer hacker, slipped that document onto my hard drive. She’s setting me up.

Summer: [ Inhales deeply ]

Nikki: Darling, please, can’t we just enjoy some time together before I leave?

Victoria: I would love that, but I just can’t shake this feeling that you’re holding something back from me. I can hear it in your voice. Mom, you’re avoiding eye contact with me. I know you very well.

Nikki: Alright, fine. Since it’s clear you’re not going to drop this, I will tell you everything.

Victoria: Please do.

Nikki: Well, I am going to have a dress designed for summer, but that’s not the only reason for my trip.

Victoria: What is?

Nikki: Diane jenkins/ I am determined to find something I can use to drive her out of town. So I am going to L.A. To confront the one person who may have some information — deacon sharpe. If you have age-related macular degeneration,

Abby: Hi! [ Chuckles ] Oh, my god, you’re early, but that’s okay. Um, that means we can spend more time together.

Chance: Honey, I’m sorry, I have to cancel date night tonight.

Abby: Why?

Chance: I have to go out of town for a few nights. It’s just for a stakeout.

Abby: Oh, can’t you at least stay for dinner? And better yet, you could leave in the morning. I mean, do you have to leave right now?

Chance: I wish I could. With this case, it’s just — it’s too important to let slide. I mean, this is an investigation of a lifetime. And it means everything to me.

Abby: Everything? What about me? What about our family?

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ]

Sharon: Hey, you working late? Need a little caffeine to get you through an all-night stakeout?

Chance: Actually, the opposite. I’m here because I’m not working and I’m feeling a bit restless. Things have eased up for me a little bit at work since I’ve closed all of rey’s cases.

Sharon: Oh, yeah, you’re feeling a little lost at sea, aren’t you? Especially now you’ve finished working on the ashland case.

Chance: Wow, I didn’t know it was that obvious.

Sharon: Well, it’s probably not, to most, but I know that when rey would finally finish working on a complicated case, it would leave him feeling antsy and restless and needing to find something to do.

Chance: Yeah, well, you know, I haven’t really thought about it that much. But you know what? I’m sure I will figure out what I need to do now. For now, I’ll just take some tea. Decaf, please.

Chelsea: I could use one of those, too. Mind if I join you?

Victor: Cheers, jack. Now, I spoke with adam earlier about his latest career move. I would like to hear from you why you hired him as co-ceo of your company.

Jack: Actually, that’s very simple. I needed someone, he was available, and the best person for the job?

Victor: Only adam?

Jack: I suppose I could have cast the net a bit wider, but adam and I have history. We have a friendship. I think you and I will agree that his talents are indisputable. I needed someone I could count on — a partner, if you will — and not for the reasons most people would think. I want to spend more time with my grandchildren. Jabot has always been, will always be, important to me. But lately I have learned there’s more to life.

Victor: Mm-hmm. I agree with that. Adam led me to believe that you hired him so that you could distract him from his anger toward me. Is that so?

Jack: I suppose that was a consideration, but I assure you, whether you believe it or not, I did not hire adam to get under your skin. I honestly believe, in the end, this will benefit all of us — you, adam, and me.

Victor: [ Chuckles ] Remember what I’m telling you now. Hiring adam… is a huge mistake.

Sally: I thought we came to an understanding earlier. But given the fact that you’re back here, I’m guessing things took a turn whenever you went upstairs to see your sister.

Nick: I did report back to victoria, who rightfully expected an explanation for your absence from the marketing summit.

Sally: I can only imagine what she had to say when you told her I got the time wrong and then I got hung up talking to adam.

Nick: I didn’t feel the need to give her any details. I just told her there were some extenuating circumstances that, you know, you messed up and that you’re very sorry for that.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] Well, I appreciate the kind description of what happened,

[Inhales deeply] But I doubt that satisfied victoria. Okay, well, I guess that answers my question. So, [Inhales deeply] What, is that it, then? Am I out of a job? (Christine) my son really had to be

Sharon: Here you go.

Chelsea: Thank you.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Sharon: Oh, excuse me. Yeah? Oh, sure. I can do that. I’ll see you in a minute. Sorry, that was mariah and tessa. They need me to pop up there. Um, is there anything else you need for the moment?

Chelsea: I’m great. Thanks, sharon.

[ Sighs ]

Chance: So, how was your day?

Chelsea: Uh, you know, had its ups and downs. Not gonna lie, it was rough at first; then it got better because I got to spend time with johnny and connor. Yeah, billy and I got them together at the pool.

Chance: Well, yeah, that sounds fun.

Chelsea: Yeah. Yeah, it was fun. Um… [ Sighs ] It was fun, and then I went back to my suite by myself, and I felt really lonely and really restless and actually really anxious. And I’m not sure why. I’m sorry. You told me I could vent to you about this stuff, and now I bet you’re regretting saying that.

Chance: No, not a bit. I’m glad you feel comfortable enough to be honest with me. I just hope you’re taking it easy on the alcohol, though, to alleviate the pain.

Chelsea: Yeah, I’m not gonna drink like that again for a really long time. Um, thank you for making sure I got home safely.

Chance: Anytime. You know what? I think I might be able to help you out again right now.

Nick: I didn’t come here to fire you, sally, but you’re right about one thing. Vick is losing her patience. So much so, she’s starting to look around at other options.

Sally: [ Sighs ] I mean, I know you both signed off on giving me this chance, but I know that victoria hasn’t been as much in my corner as you have. And I have no illusions about how victor really feels about me.

Nick: [ Sighs ] It’s not over yet. Alright? I believe in you. I’ve told you that many times. You’ve come up with some really great ideas that I think you should have an opportunity to execute. So I really talked up those concepts to the executive team. And you know what? I want to prove I was right. Too.

Sally: I appreciate that. It’s nice to know I have at least one senior exec pulling for me.

[ Inhales deeply ] And I have spent every minute managing the fallout from my screw-up earlier. I responded to every single e-mail that people sent about chloe making the presentation in my absence, and I personally called the top newman enterprises and newman media execs to apologize. And then I set up follow-up meetings with all of them. I’m on it. I’m doing everything in my power to salvage this situation.

Nick: Alright. I know you intend to.

Sally: But you can’t guarantee that it’ll be enough. You’re still wondering if I can get it together and be the leader that you need me to be or if I’m going to continue to let my feelings for adam hold me back.

Victoria: Mom, I can’t even believe that you would consider seeing deacon sharpe face-to-face. God, no, no. I mean, for a million reasons.

Nikki: Well, I have one very good reason to go. If anybody knows the real dirt about what diane was up to when she was living all those years under an assumed identity, it would be him.

Victoria: Well, what about talia morgan? You saw the scathing article she wrote about diane. She’s obviously aware of her sordid history. Why not point her in deacon’s direction, you stay out of it.

Nikki: No, this is personal. Deacon helped diane fake her own death, and he was instrumental in my being arrested for her so-called murder. We have a lot of unfinished business.

Victoria: All the more reason for you to stay away from him. The man is disgusting. How can you trust anything that he has to say? And who knows how it’s going to affect you, seeing him?

Nikki: Victoria, I can handle him.

Victoria: Need I remind you of your completely toxic dynamic, how he enabled you to drink, your destructive affair? I mean, mom, he blackmailed you into marrying him. The list goes on and on and on.

Nikki: That was in the past. I’m not the same person I was. I’m much stronger.

Victoria: How do you know that seeing him isn’t going to trigger some — some kind of a setback, that it’s not going to make you want to reach for a drink? Mom, please, it’s just too risky. Can you just let it go?

Diane: Thanks.

Kyle: Okay, mom, just calm down. From what you’ve told me, you can’t assume phyllis is trying to set you up. How would that even work?

Diane: I know it sounds crazy, but please just hear me out.

Kyle: Alright.

Diane: Phyllis could have planted that document on my computer and then sat back to wait for the right time to make her move. Then, she transfers it to her own computer and then pretends to discover it. All she has to do is vehemently deny any responsibility and then use those I.T. Skills to trace it back to me, proving that I’m trying to sabotage her.

Kyle: Wow. That’s — that is a lot to digest.

Summer: Sounds like a very complicated and completely hypothetical scheme.

Diane: I know. And if it were about anyone else, I admit I would seem paranoid. But from the moment your mother asked to join you at marchetti, I knew that she was coming for me. It wasn’t a question of if, but how and when. And now that time has come.

[ Sighs ] Please tell me you believe me. If you have copd,

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Jack: Not that I expected a “thank you,” but let’s get real here. You have yanked the rug out from adam more times than he can count. You asked him to run his company. You handed him the keys to the kingdom. And no sooner did you do that, though, you snatched him back away and gave him back to victoria.

Victor: You obviously don’t know the inner workings of my company, nor of my family, do you?

Jack: I do know that the pride and joy that you have in victoria and nicholas and abby is exactly what adam feels is missing in his life.

Victor: And you must understand that adam chooses to see what adam wants to see. Under no circumstances did I ever indicate to him that he’s not part of newman enterprises or my family.

Jack: Okay. How many times over the years have you and adam done this dance? Did you really expect him to graciously accept this demotion, especially after the giant press conference announcing his ascension to the throne? You left him out in the cold. Of course he walked away. What did you think was going to happen?

Victor: I never left him out in the cold.

Jack: And now he’s broken off his relationship with sally. And you know better than anyone, adam at loose ends, angry at you is adam at his most dangerous. Thank god he saw the light and accepted my job offer.

Victor: I’m afraid, jack, that you misunderstood my earlier warning, or you didn’t listen. Hiring my son adam is a huge mistake for you.

Jack: For me? Why?

Victor: He may appreciate it, but trust me, he only accepted your offer to piss me off. Now, once he realizes he cannot get a rise out of me, the job will have lost its allure. And he’ll be out of there unless he’s already fed up long before then.

Jack: And why would he be fed up?

Victor: Why the hell wouldn’t he? Who in your family likes him? Who at jabot likes him? Now you have him work with diane and phyllis. Are you serious? And by the way, what happened to you to allow diane and phyllis to work under your roof?

Jack: I allowed that for one very good reason. Kyle and summer wanted to work with their mothers. Give them an opportunity to rise above the fray.

Victor: Really? How’s that working out for you?

Jack: It’s an ongoing experiment, and we’re keeping a close eye. The bigger point here is that I agreed to that because I had faith in summer and kyle — faith in their ability to keep things running smoothly. The same faith I have in adam.

Victor: And I wish you good luck with that.

Diane: Summer, I know this puts you in an uncomfortable position, and I hate doing that. But you yourself were worried about phyllis lashing out.

Summer: True, but my mom promised not to cross any lines and to maintain nothing but absolute professionalism, just like you did. That being said, I know this is a stressful situation, so we’re going to get to the bottom of it.

Kyle: Don’t worry, summer and I will look into it. But please let us handle it.

Diane: Of course. I will leave it in your very capable hands.

[ Sighs ]

[ Voice breaking ] I’m — I’m just trying so hard to be the best mother and grandmother and co-worker that I can be. And I know I have a lot to make up for, which makes me all the more grateful that the two of you seem to understand that, unlike the vast majority of people in this town. Being on guard 24/7 is a really tough way to live. But tonight I feel seen and heard. And for that, I can’t thank you enough.

Nikki: I appreciate you being so protective of me, but I can handle myself with deacon. I’m not the same person I was back then. There’s absolutely nothing he can do to me now. In fact, he should worry about facing me.

Victoria: I really want to believe that.

Nikki: Sweetheart, please trust me. I’ve got this.

Victoria: This is really important to you, isn’t it?

Nikki: It absolutely is.

Victoria: Okay, but I have to ask one thing. Why now? I mean, has diane been causing some sort of problem for you that I should be aware of?

Nikki: No. Not yet, anyway. She keeps saying that she has changed and she should be welcomed back into our good graces. But I see right through her. She is incapable of change.

Victoria: I get it. You feel very strongly about this.

Nikki: She brought nothing the pain before. And she’ll do it again until somebody stops her. So I am ready to do whatever I have to, to get that woman out of our lives.

Chance: So, I totally understand how you feel. I have bouts of restlessness all the time. And I remember you saying that your old therapist didn’t really have much to offer you. Right? Well, mine actually have some pretty useful advice.

Chelsea: Lucky you.

Chance: Yeah, yeah, he taught me these relaxation techniques to kind of help take the edge off. Want to try one?

Chelsea: Sure. Show me the way.

Chance: Right. Well, take a deep breath. Right?

Chelsea: [ Inhales deeply ]

[ Exhales ]

Chance: Yeah, nice, right from the stomach, deep from the diaphragm, right?

[ Exhales ] And for 4. I want you to hold it for 4.

Nick: I’m not judging you. I told you, I understand how overwhelming dealing with adam can be. You never know if you’re getting the worst or best of him. And he has this unique ability to keep the people around him constantly off balance.

Sally: Even though it might take some time to work through everything that he’s put me through, I refuse to use it as an excuse, because it would be easy to just blame all of my missteps on the fact that he messed with my heart and my head. But I won’t, because I am nobody’s victim.

Nick: No, you are not.

Sally: This is way more than adam. And this is also about my own insecurities and fears.

Nick: It’s funny, sally, when I think about you, fear is the last thing that comes to my mind. Unless I’m thinking about how fearless I think you are.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] Sometimes I am. I mean, it’s crazy, but ever since I was little, I knew that I was destined for something great. That’s why I fought so hard to make a name for myself. I wanted to prove to everyone that underestimated me that I had what it takes to succeed.

Nick: Look at you now. I mean, if they could see you, they certainly would be impressed.

Sally: Unfortunately, i stumbled a lot along the way, and I was my own worst enemy. And way too often, I still am. I mean, I have an opportunity of a lifetime. And still there is some small secret part of me that believes that I’m an imposter.

Nick: You ran your own design house.

Sally: Yeah, but that’s nowhere near the scale of business that we’re doing here. And I don’t want to think about that, because obviously I want to prove myself. But I just can’t help but have moments where I just feel lost. And I don’t know if a guy like you can relate to that, but…

Nick: No, I, uh — I know how you feel. Trust me, I know exactly what that’s like.

Can a cream really

reduce wrinkles?

Jack: I understand how difficult it must be for you to see adam move on. So, for tonight, I will overlook the condescending attitude.

Victor: I’m not being condescending. I’m simply trying to warn you what you are in for. You do with it what you want. Just know that I tried to get through to my son, to no avail. I’m done.

Jack: Done?

Victor: You bet. A wise man knows when to cut his losses and move on.

Jack: I don’t buy that for one second. You live and breathe family. For you to give up on adam is like you giving up on yourself. And I don’t see you doing that even for one minute. You may be too wounded to see it right now, but I know better.

Victoria: So, how does dad feel about this mission of yours? He is aware of it, isn’t he?

Nikki: Yes, and he is totally for it.

Victoria: Even if he was okay with the idea, I don’t think he’d want you to be alone with deacon, even for one second.

Nikki: Well, I have a feeling I won’t be alone. I’m sure he’s going to send his security team to watch over me.

Victoria: Well, I would feel a lot better if he does.

Nikki: Darling, please don’t worry. It will be worth the effort, and we’ll all be better off for it.

Victoria: I certainly hope so.

Nikki: Now, I have a few things I have to do before your father gets home.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Of course, mom. Just promise me that you’re gonna be careful.

Nikki: I will, darling. I will. I’ll be home before you know it. Phyllis, it’s nikki. Everything is in place for my trip tomorrow, and I am going to get that information we need in L.A. I just want to make sure that you do your part and put on the pressure at marchetti.

Diane: I am so sorry for interrupting. I’m going to go now and let you get back to doing whatever you were doing before I arrived.

Summer: Don’t worry about it. You had something important to tell us.

Diane: Oh, do you think i could go upstairs and say good night to my grandson?

Kyle: Yeah, sure. He’s probably still awake. Go ahead.

Diane: Oh, good. Well, in that case, could I read him a story?

Kyle: I’m sure he’ll enjoy that.

Diane: Okay.

Kyle: [ Sighs ] So… what do you think?

Summer: You mean, about the big plot, the alleged setup? I don’t know, babe. Just seems a little clumsy to me. There’s just something about this that doesn’t ring true.

Kyle: Look, I don’t want to think the worst of phyllis any more than you do, but how else could a marchetti home file get on my mother’s computer? I mean, it must have been deliberately planted to cause her trouble.

Summer: Or that’s just what diana wants us to think.

Kyle: What are you implying?

Summer: [ Sighs ] Don’t get mad, okay? Just think about it. What if diane created the file and this whole crazy story just to throw suspicion on my mom, to get her out of the way so that she can’t undermine diane? All I’m saying is that it seems to me like there’s more than one plausible explanation for what’s going on here.

[ Door closes ]

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Chance: What are you doing up? When I left, you were knocked out.

Abby: I had a bad dream.

Chance: Oh, no. I’m sorry. About what?

Abby: It doesn’t matter. Where were you? I tried calling you.

Chance: I left you a note. Did you not see my note? Uh, oh. Duh. [ Chuckles ] I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to worry you. I was a little restless. I ended up at crimson lights. You were sleeping so good, I didn’t want to wake you up.

Abby: Oh, I am wide-awake now.

Chance: You alright?

Abby: Not really.

Chance: What’s wrong? Are you coming down with something? You sick?

Abby: I feel like something is off between us, like we’re out of sync or something.

Chance: Why? Because I wasn’t here when you woke up? I mean, come on, no. Baby, we’re fine. I mean, we are beyond fine, in fact, right?

Abby: Yeah.

Chance: There’s nothing to worry about. I love you so much. You know that?

Abby: Love you, too.

Nick: You know the truth about how ashland died.

Sally: Yes. It was an accident while you were protecting your sister. It was not your fault.

Nick: I still did it. And I’m struggling, trying to find a way to live with what happened. Desperately trying to prove to myself that I’m still the same person I was before and that it’s okay, you know, to just let go of what happened and try and move on.

Sally: It is. You’re a good person, nick, and you deserve all the good things that life has to offer. You just have to keep believing in yourself.

Nick: It’s ironic, you know, that was the exact advice I was gonna give you.

Sally: Well, how about that? I’ll tell you what. Let’s make a deal. I won’t stop fighting for what I want… if you won’T.

[ Knock on door ]

Nick: How was the victory tour? From all your messages from the road, it sounds like the trip was a smashing success.

Victoria: That’s actually an understatement. I closed almost every single deal I set my sights on. Legal is gonna have their hands full in the coming weeks finalizing all of these acquisitions.

Nick: Maybe we should send them, like, a gift basket.

Victoria: I am going to send everyone on the team a huge bonus check when this is done for making this game changer possible.

Nick: Vick, I haven’t seen you this happy since — no. You’re even more elated than you were before the merger.

Victoria: Well, that’s because this time is different. This time, it’s — [Sighs] It’s mine. Carefully curated companies, everything that we need. We’re filling in the gaps as a corporation.

Nick: Hey, if you’re happy, I’m happy.

Victoria: And one of the reasons that I have this big smile on my face right now is due to you, because of your — your dedication to the company. And because you happen to be the best brother in the whole world.

Nick: Well, it’s about time you noticed.

Victoria: I was able to go out there and conquer and do what I needed to do without having to worry about what was going on back here. I mean, I know I’ve always been able to rely on mom as my partner, but it’s nice, the three of us together now.

Nick: Feels like a winning combination.

Victoria: Yes. We’re stronger together. We’re unbeatable. So, thank you so much for keeping everything running so seamlessly.

Nick: [ Sighs ] I hate to bring down the mood, but I’m not entirely sure that’s the case.

Chloe: [ Sighs ] There you are. I was five minutes away from calling out a search party. Did you get my text?

Sally: Yeah, I saw it. I was in an important meeting. You said it was an emergency, so I rushed back. What’s so urgent?

Chloe: Oh, just the marketing summit between newman media and the parent company’s marketing teams.

Sally: Okay. That’s later today.

Chloe: No. It just happened.

[ Cellphone thuds ] All of that preparation and work for nothing.

[ Scoffs ] So, what all-important, urgent meeting were you in?

Victoria: So, tell me — what have I missed?

Nick: In a nutshell, dad wants me to fire sally and then replace her with myself as ceo of newman media.

Victoria: Should I be worried that I’m losing you?

Nick: No way, vick. I’m doing what I want to do. I like being a part of the big-picture stuff with you and mom.

Victoria: [ Scoffs ] Why would dad want you to move over to media?

Nick: I’m sure it’s a form of retaliation against adam for abandoning us and also agreeing to be jack’s co-ceo of jabot.

Victoria: Yes, that was pretty shocking for me, too. I got a million-or-so text messages about it.

Nick: I’m sure most of those texts were from me.

Victoria: A bunch of them were from billy. I have to admit, I didn’t see this coming from adam…or jack.

Nick: There was just no way dad was gonna let this kind of betrayal go unpunished. And what better way than to kick sally to the curb after adam fought so hard for her to keep her job than to give me her old seat?

Victoria: Seems a little convoluted, but I can see the logic in it.

Nick: Dad just has to have his way and interfere in everything. He’s got to move the chess pieces around so everyone is exactly where he wants them, no matter what they want for themselves. I mean, can you believe this?

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Yes, I can believe this. And you’re right. That’s exactly what dad’s doing.

Elena: I’ll go grab us some tea.

Nate: What I’d like is a burger.

Elena: Well, what you need to do is take a deep breath.

Nate: It’s pointless trying to relax.

Elena: Okay. Why don’t you tell me what happened?

Nate: I was foolish enough to think that I could get past devon’s stubbornness. But he’s so threatened by new ideas and just set in his stodgy way of thinking. I —

Elena: Was this that meeting with jill and lily?

Nate: And devon dialed in from virginia. I was — I was so excited to work with my family, to build something that matters, that’ll outlast us all.

Elena: Well, maybe there’s still a way to heal all this.

Nate: What do you mean? You’re the one who had reservations. You just told me the other day that I should leave. And silly me wasn’t ready. Well, guess what. I’m ready now. So you should be happy.

Lily: I mean, nate is one of the most polished, even-tempered men I know. And why would he lose his cool like that, especially in front of jill?

Billy: Because he’s under a lot of pressure, and most of that is self-imposed.

Lily: Well, he was in a good mood at the beginning of the call.

Billy: Well, yeah. He’s worked very hard on his music festival idea, and like i said on the call, I’m impressed. I think it’s a good idea.

Lily: I think it’s a good idea, too. But devon doesn’t like it.

Billy: No. That is clear. And I think nate was offended by his negative reaction. What?

Lily: Well, it just —

Billy: What’d I say?

Lily: It really sounds like you’re taking sides right now, and I would hope that you, of all people, would know that i can’t deal with that right now.

Nate: Thank you.

Elena: Mm-hmm. Now, the only reason I suggested that you leave chancellor-winters was because of all the tension between you and devon. That’s also why I suggested that you slow down with your plans for the music festival.

Nate: Yes, in retrospect, that was a good idea.

Elena: I’m gonna take a wild guess that you told lily about your plan while devon’s been away in virginia?

Nate: No. That was my original intention. I pitched it to billy. And he loved it.

Elena: And?

Nate: Then billy brought it up in our video call with jill and devon.

Elena: [ Chuckles ] And I’m sure devon was not very happy to be caught off guard in front of everyone about something he thought was dead in the water.

Nate: Okay, I did not expect billy to put it all out there like that.

Elena: Yeah, but that doesn’t change the fact that devon probably felt blindsided.

Nate: Which was the last thing I wanted. But am I supposed to just sit quietly while the rest of the executive team actually likes my idea and wants to hear details?

[ Scoffs ] I’m truly befuddled. I don’t understand why you keep taking devon’s side.

Nick: I don’t get it. Why aren’t you more bothered by dad’s interference?

Victoria: It’s who he is. I mean, at this point, I could write his playbook. You could. So, it’s okay. Let him — let him make his suggestions that he wants to make. Ultimately, we’re gonna make the call on how to handle this.

Nick: Okay.

Victoria: What do you want?

Nick: Oh. What do i want? Uh, I would like to no longer be a part of any more of dad’s mind games targeting adam.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Well, good luck with that. What else are you thinking?

Nick: I have some concerns about sally.

Victoria: Like what?

Nick: She seems to be second-guessing herself.

Victoria: About what?

Nick: You know, she had all these great plans to reinvigorate omega media. Then the numbers came back. They weren’t great. Then she was talking about scrapping the whole thing. She came to me for advice.

Victoria: Did you disagree with her judgment?

Nick: That’s the thing. She didn’t have an opinion about it either way. Uh…I don’t know. It’s like she’s questioning her instincts.

Victoria: Well, that’s not a good sign, especially not in the c-suite.

Nick: She seems to have lost that strong leadership and management style that she spoke so passionately about when she was pleading to keep her job.

Victoria: What do you think happened to her?

Nick: I have my suspicions about what’s got her off kilter. Pretty sure it’s adam.

Sally: That marketing summit is in two hours.

Chloe: [ Chuckles ] No. It just happened. And do you know why I’m so certain? Because I was there.

Sally: Oh, no.

Chloe: Oh, yes. I did that presentation alone. And everyone from our team and theirs was wondering where you were. “Where’s your ceo?” “I hope she’s alright.”

Sally: Damn it. It’s the right time in my calendar, but — I don’t know — for some reason, I swore it was later today.

Chloe: Are you serious?

Sally: Look, you know what? It’s fine, though, ’cause I am positive that you were amazing because you are so poised and polished. So, what was the response, generally?

Chloe: I mean, I did my best, but, honestly, everyone was a little confused and kind of annoyed that you were a no-show.

Sally: Okay. Well, I will just e-mail everyone and tell them that my assistant put the wrong time in the calendar.

Chloe: But that’s not what happened.

Sally: Okay, well, this is one of those times where a little white lie is best, okay? I really did think the meeting was later today. Otherwise, I would not have gone to the athletic club roof.

Chloe: Why were you there?

Sally: Just to clear my head.

Chloe: But you said you were in a different important meeting.

Sally: It was impromptu. I ran into someone that I have been trying to catch up with, and — and I just got a little distracted.

Chloe: With who?

Sally: I really don’t see why it matters.

Chloe: Okay. Well, if you forgot about your meeting because you had a different, important meeting, i think I have the right to know.

Sally: Adam. Alright? It was adam.

Chloe: [ Laughs ] That is so funny because I heard you say “adam” twice. I just must be hallucinating.

Sally: Okay. Well, you should be happy because now I finally have absolute clarity. The world is full of make or break moments.

Victoria: So, sally’s been knocked off center by adam. It’s such a pity that nobody warned her she should stay away from him.

Nick: Come on. We’ve all been gutted by break-ups. They throw you off your game. They make you question yourself and your life.

Victoria: Nicholas, I know that better than anyone. I’ve just been through hell and back. But I need everyone to be in fighting form for the next phase of this company. There’s a world of difference between having a couple of bad days and being completely unqualified for the job.

Nick: I never said she couldn’t cut it. I just don’t think she’s in the best headspace right now.

Victoria: Oh, I’m so sorry. This is not a charity organization. We do not take workers under our arm and give them a how-to on being an executive or regaining one’s confidence after adam.

Nick: Look, I’ve said it before. I’m gonna say it again. I think it’s bad for optics if we replace her so soon after replacing adam. Is she perfect for the job? Probably not. But do I think she can grow? I absolutely do, vick. I really think she deserves credit for coming to you and warning you that adam wanted to publish evidence about dad’s cover-up.

Victoria: I was impressed with her loyalty, nicholas, but that’s not enough reason to keep her around.

Nick: Just trust me, okay? I’m gonna keep an eye on her. Let’s give her some time. Maybe she’ll turn it around.

[ Cellphone pings ]

Billy: I’m not taking sides, but I do want this conflict between nate and devon to smooth out as soon as possible.

Lily: Well, then, maybe you shouldn’t have had nate bring up the music festival idea on the call.

Billy: Yeah, okay. You have a point there. But I thought it was important that my mother and devon both see that nate has good instincts. I mean, he took every problem that devon had with his music festival idea, and he fixed them. He made it better. What else can you ask for?

Lily: Well, maybe devon felt blindsided, like his authority was being undermined, you know, which apparently is how he felt, given his mood after the call.

Billy: Yeah, I did not expect nate to walk out, that’s for sure.

Lily: If we don’t do something about this, he might walk away for good.

Billy: How do you feel about that?

Lily: I mean, like a failure. You know? I’m in charge. I’m supposed to be able to help everyone through this.

Billy: I understand that’s how you feel because that’s who you are, but let’s not lose sight of something very important here. Devon is your equal partner, okay? If he has a problem with nate, they need to figure that out outside of this office. It’s not your job to mediate.

Lily: No, but it is my responsibility as the person who pushed for this merger and as their family.

Billy: Okay. Well, then you need to have a serious conversation with your brother because if they don’t fix their issues, your cousin could be jumping ship.

Elena: I’m not taking devon’s side. I’m just trying to see his point of view so that you could see his point of view. My whole objective here is just to get you both to resolve your issues.

Nate: I wish that were possible.

Elena: And for the record, i am sorry that things did not work out with chancellor-winters. I know how excited everyone was to work together. But I do believe that things will be better for you when there’s less friction and tension.

Nate: I’ll be a lot less stressed.

Elena: So, what’s next? Have you officially given your resignation?

Nate: No, but in my head, I’ve done it 100 times in a 100 different ways.

Elena: Okay, well, as long as you don’t burn any bridges. You want to keep your relationship with devon and lily intact.

Nate: Of course I want to be fair to lily, but I’m not sure i can swallow my anger at devon.

Lily: But you’re gonna try, right?

Nate: I have to cool off before I answer that.

Elena: Well, I’m still gonna take that as a “yes.” Let’s talk about your future. What you want to do next?

Nate: [ Sighs ] I haven’t thought that far.

Elena: Well, if it were up to me, I still think you should go back to memorial. And I’m not the only person who thinks so. Everyone misses you there.

Nate: Send them my best wishes because there’s no way I’ll go back. I hated the bureaucracy there when I was the chief of surgery. That’s the whole reason why i left. And besides, that position was filled months ago. The only way I’ll go back to medicine would be as a surgeon. And you and I both know that’ll never happen because of devon.

Chloe: If you think I’m glad that you missed your meeting because you were flirting with adam, you have well and truly lost both your mind and all perspective.

Sally: I wasn’t flirting, okay? It was a civilized conversation. It was almost as if none of what recently took place actually happened. And it felt good.

Chloe: Yeah, I bet.

Sally: Adam and I have always had this chemistry.

Chloe: And it’s still there?

Sally: Yeah. Off the charts. But when things could have gone completely off the rails, i looked in his eyes and I said no. And I put on the brakes.

Chloe: And you’re sure that my emergency text isn’t what slowed things down?

Sally: Okay, you are not paying attention.

Chloe: Do you see what’s happening here? Adam is so deep inside your head that he is screwing with what you swore was your number-one priority — becoming the best damn ceo newman media has ever had.

Sally: I am not letting my personal feelings get in the way of my work, okay? I missed one meeting. It’s not the end of the world.

Chloe: Well, it could be the beginning of the end of your career, all because you’re distracted by adam.

Sally: You are overreacting.

Nick: Everything okay in here?

Sally: I should ask you the same question. Is everything alright?

Nick: What makes you think there’s something wrong?

Sally: You’re the boss. Whenever you show up unexpectedly, it makes me a little nervous. Hopefully you don’t have any bad news.

Nick: Nah, it’s just an information-gathering mission. I wanted to see how the marketing summit went.

Sally: What would you say, chloe? I would be interested in hearing your take ’cause, I mean, as far as I’m concerned, you were brilliant.

Chloe: Yeah, I did, uh, my best. I wouldn’t go that far.

Sally: Oh, come on. Don’t be modest. You were, uh, really great in the coo role.

Chloe: And I was grateful to, um, be able to do the presentation. And, you know, if it weren’t for sally — I mean, she’s just such a great leader, willing to give others the spotlight.

[ Chuckles ]

Nick: So it went well then?

Chloe: Yeah. It was great. People were very engaged.

Sally: Yeah, my — my inbox is blowing up. I’m gonna be answering e-mails all day.

Nick: Well, the way you’re both talking, it’s as if you want me to believe sally was actually there when we all know she wasn’T.

Elena: If you blame devon for ending your surgical career, does that mean you blame me, too?

Nate: No, absolutely not. My point is, once again devon has screwed up my career path.

Elena: Nate, those are two very different things. And I think it’s dangerous to conflate them. The first was an accident because devon felt that we both betrayed him. And this is just a matter of different business philosophies.

Nate: No. He’s threatened. He doesn’t want me to outshine him. Why else would you shoot down someone’s ideas without trying to make them work?

Elena: I don’t know about that. Devon is an established music producer. He’s a successful businessman. I don’t think he has anything to prove.

Nate: I’m not interested in psychoanalyzing the situation.

Elena: Well, I’m just trying to understand —

Nate: It’s a waste of time. It happened. It’s over. I’m done.

Lily: And when jill said that she wants to take the company public…

Billy: Yeah. Not the news I was expecting. What do you think?

Lily: I mean, I haven’t even fully processed it yet.

Billy: I know you said on the call that you’re gonna have to talk to devon about it, but clearly he has concerns. So maybe we should, uh, unpack this a little bit, see what we got.

Lily: Okay. Why don’t you start?

Billy: Alright. Well, I will say initially I had the same concerns as devon. We’re gonna lose the power to make decisions on our own, in the room, collectively. We’re gonna lose control to a bunch of stockholders, and that makes me nervous.

Lily: I mean, yeah, it makes me nervous, too. It makes me…excited. You know, I think that you have to give up some control of some things to gain more control over other things.

Billy: Such as?

Lily: Well, I mean, this could provide us with the financial freedom to pursue other projects, like the music festival. I mean, that would help alleviate, you know, devon’s main concern, which were the financial pitfalls.

Billy: If that is actually the main concern, if that’s the reason why devon actually has a problem with nate’s idea in the first place.

Lily: Yeah. I guess all things lead back to my family feud.

Both: [ Chuckles ] You know, when we started this merger, I never imagined that my mother and I would be getting along better than nate and devon.

Lily: We need to solve this issue before it causes any more disruption. I mean, you’re my coo. Do you have any ideas?

Nick: I got a message from the head of newman marketing saying the ceo of newman media was not at the meeting. At first, I thought maybe you were sick or something, but I’m really hoping there’s a reasonable explanation for you not being there.

Sally: Unfortunately, I do not have one of those. I screwed up. I had it in my calendar, but in my mind, for some reason, i thought it was later today. I should have set an alarm to remind myself. I’m — I’m sorry. I will personally make it up to both teams.

Nick: Chloe, may I please talk to sally alone?

Chloe: Yeah. Of course.

Nick: Thank you.

[ Door opens ] You know, I can count on one hand the number of people who want to see you succeed. And I’m one of them.

Sally: Yeah, I know. And I appreciate that.

Nick: Then level with me, sally. You missing this meeting is a big deal, and I need to understand why it happened.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Elena: Well, hopefully we can finish up this conversation at dinner. I would love to map out a plan for your future and a way to amend things with your family.

Nate: I’ll see you later. I’ve been hearing some terrific things are in the works at newman.

Victoria: I have just returned from a very successful shopping spree.

Nate: Mm. Something tells me this has absolutely nothing to do with an afternoon at fenmore’s?

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] I’m buying companies, not clothes, but that’s all I can say for now because it hasn’t officially been announced yet.

Nate: Ah. Sounds exciting. And it’s good to see you this happy.

Victoria: Thank you. I’m doing what I was meant to do and I’m where I’m supposed to be. I hope that things are going equally well for you at chancellor-winters.

Nate: Mm. Ah — whew. How should I put this? I am interested in pursuing other opportunities.

Victoria: I’m surprised.

Nate: I was initially intrigued when I was first offered a job at newman. At the time, there was a lot of talk about how my experience and ideas could make me a great fit.

Victoria: You know I’m a big fan, right? But I have to ask — why would you even think about walking away from chancellor-winters?

Billy: I think devon’s reasons for always pushing back on nate’s ideas are excuses. I think every problem that devon has had, nate has figured out a workaround and he’s been doing a great job at it. Yet devon still won’t budge.

Lily: I mean, what do you think it is? Residual hurt feelings from nate cheating with elena?

Billy: Possibly. Or devon’s worried that his accolades are, you know, not being recognized. Look, nate’s a smart guy. He’s a surgeon, and now he’s working the way around the boardroom pretty well. I mean, even I’m a little bit jealous of him. People learn how to deal with healthy competition, but when it comes to family, it’s a whole new thing. And maybe that’s devon’s thing. I mean, he is well respected in this industry, and he’s worked very hard to earn that respect. And now there’s some, you know, new blood coming in that’s getting a little attention. Maybe that hurts devon’s ego a little bit. Whatever’s going on between them, I think it’s deeper than a music festival idea. The question is, what can we do about it?

Lily: I mean, look, regardless, whatever it is, we have to figure this out. Otherwise, it’s just gonna keep bubbling over until everything explodes, and that is not good for our family and it’s not good for the company.

Sally: I screwed up. And there’s no excuse, so I will just tell you the truth about why I missed the summit.

Nick: That’s always a good strategy.

Sally: I ran into adam.

Nick: You missed a meeting because you saw adam?

Sally: Yes. But also no — because I was positively convinced that the meeting was later today. I mean, look, if I’m being completely honest, I have been a little bit distracted processing my feelings about adam and our break-up. So I went to go clear my head, and I [Chuckles] Ran into adam, of course.

Nick: I didn’t know you two were on speaking terms right now.

Sally: We’re defrosting. He apologized, and he asked for forgiveness. Shocking, right? But we’ve actually gotten to the point where we can stand to be in the same room with each other. You know, we can have a conversation without things turning ugly.

Nick: Well, that’s good, I guess.

Sally: We indulged in quite a bit of small talk, actually. He told me things are going really well at jabot. He finally found where he belongs. Which is great, you know, ’cause whenever you find that…

Nick: This whole mess with adam has really done a number on you, huh? And despite your best efforts, you just can’t seem to get past it.

Psst psst.

Sally: Sure. Yeah. This whole mess with adam hurt. But it is hardly the first time I’ve gotten my heart broken. And I know now that adam was being noble. You know, he wanted me to keep my job, and he didn’t want you or victoria’s hatred of him getting in the way.

Nick: That doesn’t excuse what he did.

Sally: No. It doesn’T. And in some ways, it makes it harder to reconcile the fact that he deliberately hurt me because, in his own twisted way, he was just trying to protect me.

Nick: “Twisted” is often used to describe adam’s motivations.

Sally: I know you can’t stand the guy, but that’s not really fair.

Nick: Sally, actually, i don’t hate my brother, alright? We’ve had a lot of disagreements and issues over the years, but I’ve come to realize we share common ground. I’m starting to understand him a little better.

Sally: I’m glad to hear that. And I’m sure adam would be, too.

Nick: But I’m here to talk about how this affects you.

Sally: I’m fine.

Nick: Listen to me. I can’t ignore the fact that you missed this meeting. Like I said, it’s a big deal. It impacts everyone’s perception of you as a leader. Now, newman has a lot of very important acquisitions in the pipeline, and I need to know that you can do this.

Sally: I can. I will make things right. I promise. I — I don’t know how yet exactly, but I swear I will not let anything come in between me and my dream job.

Nick: But something or someone has. Look, I know adam can mess with your mind. I’ve seen it before. But I believe in you, sally. I’m doing everything I can to set you up to succeed. And I’m confident that you will,

if you can get adam out of your system.

Nate: Let’s just say it’s more difficult working with my family than I thought. There are just simply too many personal factors at play.

Victoria: You have wonderful instincts. And you are definitely a forward thinker, and you deserve to be somewhere where people appreciate your contributions. But right now, I just don’t have a good fit for you.

Nate: Oh, it’s — no worries. I know something will turn up eventually and, um, I’ll end where I belong.

Victoria: Hold on. Don’t jump too fast too soon. Once the dust settles on my new acquisitions, I’m gonna need people like you to run those divisions. I’m gonna keep you in mind.

Nate: Please do.

Victoria: You know, working with family — it can be complicated and it can be exhausting, but it kind of forces us to push through those difficult moments and make it work.

Nate: Mm. That’s good advice.

Victoria: I hope you figure it out.

Billy: Come here. Stand up.

Lily: What are we doing?

Billy: Come on.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] What — [ Laughs ]

Billy: Whoa.

Lily: What?

Billy: Okay, that’s not working. Sit back down.

Lily: [ Laughs ] Why?

Billy: Come here. Stand up.

Lily: [ Laughing ] What —

Billy: Come on. Bring it in. We got to try this again.

Lily: Try what?

Billy: Oh, lordy.

Lily: What is wrong?

Billy: Well, at first i thought it was me, but it is definitely you.

Lily: What is me?

Billy: I feel like I’m hugging a statue. Will you please just relax a little bit?

Lily: Oh, my god. Okay. I mean, that’s how I feel, and I don’t like it.

Billy: Lucky you have me to help you relax.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Oh. Oh, wow.

Billy: Yeah? It’s okay?

Lily: That’s nice. Thank you.

Billy: You like that?

Lily: Oh, my gosh. I didn’t realize how tense i was. Ahh.

Billy: You have an ability to look cool and collected when the rest of us are all losing our heads.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] That is the true sign of a leader.

Lily: Yeah. Or someone in complete denial.

[ Breathes deeply ]

Billy: You’re born to be a ceo. And you’re doing it. You are merging two powerful companies into one major corporation…that is not gonna stop for anything. And you’re managing complicated family dynamics.

Lily: Hmm.

Billy: And my mother is so impressed with you that she wants to take this company public. And I am in awe of you.

Lily: Thank you.

Imani: Nate?

[ Chuckles ] Nate!

Nate: Hey. Ah.

Imani: [ Chuckles ]

Nate: I’m sorry. You got to forgive me. I’m stuck in my own head.

Imani: It’s alright. I’ll just grab a coffee, and when I come back, you can fill me in on the big move you’re gonna make while devon’s out of town.

Nate: It all blew up. I crunched some new numbers, ran it all by billy.

Imani: And I’m sure he loved it.

Nate: Yeah, but that turned out to be the problem.

Imani: [ Scoffs ] How?

Nate: Well, we had a big conference call with jill. She asked what everyone was working on. I wasn’t gonna say anything specific, but billy piped up and volunteered my pet project. And you know what? Devon got all bent out of shape. So jill asked lily what her opinion was on the matter. She didn’t take my side, so…

Imani: I’m sorry it played out that way.

Nate: Me too. But I’m not surprised.

Imani: Okay. So, how did it end?

Nate: I walked out.

Imani: [ Laughs ] While jill was still on the call?

Nate: Not my proudest moment. But it doesn’t matter. Today was my last day. I’m leaving chancellor-winters.

Imani: [ Scoffs ] You know why I love halloween?

Sally: How could I have been so careless? What was I thinking?

Chloe: You weren’T. Adam made your brain short-circuit.

Sally: I’m just grateful that nick is being so understanding, but if I make one more misstep, I’m history.

Chloe: So, you want to fix this?

Sally: Do you know a way out?

Chloe: You have to stay the hell away from adam from now on.

Sally: Okay, I get that you hate him and you want the rest of the world to despise him, too, but did you ever once think about it from my perspective? Did you ever once, for one minute, think that, after all of these years of heartache, that i actually thought that I finally found the person that i absolutely belong with?

Chloe: You don’t belong with adam. No one does. You are better than that.

Sally: Okay, I am tired of all of these warnings about how terrible he is.

Chloe: After all the things that adam has done, you don’t under–

Sally: Okay, I have also been accused of despicable acts, alright? And the more people criticize me and try to control me, I just want to fight back. That is why I believe i understand adam maybe better than anyone else. Adam and I are cut from the same cloth, and I can’t just erase him from my heart because you and everyone else tells me to.

Chloe: Okay! You throw away your whole future! I — I swear — I’m done.

[ Door slams ]

Nick: Hey.

Victoria: Hey. So, tell me — what did sally have to say for herself?

Nick: I’m not gonna get into details. Let’s just say there were extenuating circumstances. Sally messed up. She took ownership of it.

Victoria: Nick, I’m sorry, but that’s just not good enough. And I understand if you don’t want to go over to newman media. Frankly, I want you to stay. But we need to come up with other viable options if sally’s not up to task.

Nick: I really, really think she is.

Victoria: Well, I think the marketing department would beg to differ. I’ve already received several messages from them expressing their irritation that the ceo of newman media couldn’t even show up to the summit.

Nick: Come on. Who hasn’t missed a meeting?

Victoria: At bare minimum, you should make it clear to her that there will be no second chances.

Nick: Seems pretty harsh, vick. Who doesn’t deserve a second chance?

Victoria: We have overlooked a lot when it’s come to her. And there are plenty of good executives out there. Nate, for example. I just ran into him. He let me know that he’s looking for a new job.

Nick: Why would he leave his family’s company?

Victoria: I don’t know. I have no idea what went wrong over there, but he’s ambitious. And his drive to make a mark in the business world seems stronger than ever.

Imani: Listen. This disagreement with devon is no reason to walk out on chancellor-winters.

Maybe it’s a sign that i shouldn’t be there — because nothing that’s right should be this difficult.

Imani: Is this about elena? Because I know she was urging you to quit.

Nate: No, this is entirely my call. I cannot fight with devon anymore.

Imani: But where will you go?

Nate: Someplace I’m appreciated.

Imani: I appreciate you.

Nate: [ Sighs ]

Imani: [ Chuckles ]

Nate: Thank you. But unfortunately, you don’t have the authority to green-light my projects. Devon does.

Imani: Yeah, well, there may be another solution besides walking away. If you leave now, it’ll confirm to devon that he was right, that you couldn’t handle the position.

Nate: I don’t have any other choice. I have played by devon’s rules, and I defied them, as well. Nothing has worked.

Imani: Hmm. Well, then maybe [Clears throat] It’s time to start thinking a little more, uh…ruthlessly.

Nick: You know what? I dare you to go in there and tell him to go home.

Sharon: [Laughs] I am not gonna walk in there and tell Victor he has to go back to the ranch. But, you know, it might be nice to spend some time with someone who loves Faith as much as we do.

Nick: Alright. It’s your call. Don’t say I didn’t give you an out.

Victor: Well, by the look of things, you were deciding whether to stay or not.


Victor: You know your mother already sent her a care package.

Nick: Are you serious? She’s already going overboard.

Victor: Oh, that’s alright. That’s okay. Listen, you know that Faith will face a lot of challenges, and it’s always good to know that her family is there to back her up and to love her, you know?

Phyllis: Boy, did Diane come to you crying about the article, Jack? Claiming that I was the one who hatched it?

Jack: When I first came to you, you claimed you wanted nothing to do with that reporter. But that wasn’t true, was it? Because you conveniently omitted the fact that you convinced her to use Diane as her subject.

Phyllis: I was just messing with Diane. It’s fun to do. And, honestly, she was sitting right here. If I wanted to create problems, I would have been more discreet. And it’s Diane’s own fault. She was sucking up to Talia, sucking up to an investigative journalist. If she didn’t want the heat, she shouldn’t have run into the kitchen, quite honestly.

Jack: She shouldn’t have to protect herself. No one deserves to be dragged through the mud like that.

Phyllis: Oh god, I cannot understand why you are so mad about this article. All of it has been published before. All of it. And it’s not like it wasn’t true. It’s all true. But yet again, I’m the one under suspicion for all the horrible things that Diane has done and that were published in that piece.


Summer: Adam, this is Tessa’s first photo shoot for Marchetti, so I just think it would be best if we kept the number of people involved to a minimum.

Kyle: What Summer is so politely trying to explain, because she’s good at her job and also at navigating company politics, is that we don’t need this many chefs in the kitchen.

Adam: Mm. Well, I’m not giving any opinions. I’m just observing.

Kyle: Could you give me a little moment alone with —

Summer: You know what? I’m just gonna let you handle this one, babe.

Kyle: You showed up. You observed. The best thing you can do now is to smile, give a polite wave, and wish everyone a great photo shoot. In other words, get out of the way and let the people who need to do their jobs do them.

Jack: Yes, now that we’ve acquired Marchetti, I have a few more faces and names I have to remember.

Billy: Yeah, sure, but I’m talking about one employee in particular.

Jack: I knew exactly what you were talking about.

Billy: Adam’s been on the job for about 3 hours now. Has he burned the place down?

Jack: Hasn’t caused any problems, and I’m not going to discuss him with you anymore. No, because you are so wise about business, though, I’d like to tap your brain about a couple of other subjects.


Jack: Billy, I know you think of yourself as a great poker player, but I feel like I’m getting a good read on you.

Billy: Is that right? You think I’m bluffing?

Jack: Not completely, but i think you’re working very hard to convince yourself.

Billy: Well, either you’re not hearing me correctly or you’re projecting.

Jack: I’m projecting? How so?

Billy: I think you’re feeling really nervous about the recent corporate hires, and you’re projecting your insecurities on me.

Jack: I didn’t realize I was being so transparent.

Billy: Jack, got to look a little deeper. You’ll find it.

Jack: I’m not so sure. Look, I’m very happy you are now focused on your business career.

Billy: Are you really?

Jack: Yes, I am. Hey, I have a long track record in business, and maybe you’ve heard about it. There is not a corporate boardroom situation that I have not faced.

Nick: Yeah. Sharing my thoughts and feelings with a total stranger — yeah, that’s not something I’m into at all.

Sharon: But we all need someone just to talk to sometimes, someone professional and impartial who you can confess absolutely anything to without judgment because their sole purpose is to help you.

Nick: Well, maybe I got spoiled just having you to talk to. Or maybe you’re tired of all my moaning and groaning and this is your subtle way of saying, “hey, let’s move things along.”

Sharon: Well, that’s not true and you know it. I hope that you’ll give some thought to what Adam and I said. I mean if we’re both telling you the same thing… maybe it’s worth listening to.

Nate: Hey. Hope you haven’t been waiting too long.

Elena: For you, I don’t mind.

Nate: Sure you mean that? Even after things got heated earlier?

Elena: I regret my part in all of that. I just want the time we spend together to be easy.

Nate: Mm. Like sunday morning?

[ Chuckles ]

Elena: Like things used to be — you know, fun, spontaneous. Maybe we could go and have dinner someplace new. Or maybe we could lay out by the pool at the athletic club? Look up at the stars, drink some wine?

Nate: Oh. As much as I would love to, i will have to ask for a rain check.

Elena: Oh. You have other plans?

Nate: Yes. I am getting everything in place for the first-ever chancellor-winters music festival. And it’s all gonna come together before devon can get back and put the brakes on.

Billy: Hey.

Lily: Hey. If it isn’t dad of year.

Billy: Ah. I’ll take coo of the day. Thank you very much.

Lily: Yeah. How was your outing with johnny and connor?

Billy: It was good. They had a blast.

Lily: Good. What about chelsea?

Billy: I think it was really good for her, too, you know? I think it was nice for her to see the boys hanging out in that way.

Lily: Sweet. Well, good. I’m glad.

Billy: Mm-hmm.

Lily: Look, now that you’re back, we have something really important to discuss.

Billy: Okay. I am here and ready to handle whatever you throw at me.

Lily: Well, this time it’s your mother who’s doing the throwing.

Billy: What do you mean by that?

Lily: Uh, not sure exactly. She said that she has a very important announcement to make.

Nick: [ Sighs ] You okay?

Sharon: I’m just checking to see if faith posted any photos yet. I hope she’s having a nice time.

Nick: She’s gonna be fine. So are you. It’s actually me I’m worried about.

Sharon: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, this whole kids growing up stuff is for the birds.

Nick: I know. Let’s not even think about the empty-nest thing, and let’s just get in there and order something decadent.

Sharon: You don’t have to do all of this to distract me.

Nick: Is it working?

Victor: Well, how nice to see both of you.

Sharon: Oh, hello.

Nick: Hey, dad.

Victor: Your mother was called to a conference call, so I’m gonna have lunch by myself. Why don’t you join me?

Sally: What’s a girl got to do to get a drink around here?

[ Chuckles ]

Adam: The bartender should be back in a minute. You’re welcome to sit. Unless you prefer hovering.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] I can, uh, hover elsewhere if you’d like.

Adam: Well, I would like if you sat. I mean, if that’s what you would like to do. We can do this, right?

Sally: Speak?

Adam: Mm-hmm, while having a drink, in between sips. Don’t you think?

Nick: You know what? I dare you to go in there and tell him to go home.

Sharon: [ Laughs ] I am not gonna walk in there and tell victor he has to go back to the ranch. But, you know, it might be nice to spend some time with someone who loves faith as much as we do.

Nick: Alright. It’s your call. Don’t say I didn’t give you an out.

Victor: Well, by the look of things, you were deciding whether to stay or not.

Nick: No, no, it’s cool. In fact, I wanted to see you. I wanted to ask you how christian was while he was staying with you. Was he a good boy?

Victor: He’s a great kid. Wonderful.

Nick: Good. He does love his grandparents.

Victor: How did things go with faith?

Sharon: Very good. You know, she’s settling in, getting to know her roommate. And we ran into moses and his mom.

Victor: Oh. Wait a minute. Well, I’m glad that he is there, but hopefully things don’t get too serious between the two of them. I want faith to study, you know.

Sharon: Well, I’m sure she will, but, you know, we want faith to have the whole college experience. And that includes friends and parties and, yes, a boyfriend.

Victor: As long as she doesn’t forget about her family.

Nick: I don’t see that happening, dad.

Victor: You know your mother already sent her a care package.

Nick: Are you serious? She’s already going overboard.

Victor: Oh, that’s alright. That’s okay. Listen, you know that faith will face a lot of challenges, and it’s always good to know that her family is there to back her up and to love her, you know?

Sharon: [ Voice breaking ] That’s so beautiful. I… you know what? Would you excuse me for a moment?

Nick: Of course.

Victor: Everything alright?

Nick: Yeah, I — I just think, you know, we’re both a little raw from dropping faith off at school. It’s gonna be tough. I have christian at home. Sharon’s still dealing with losing rey.

Victor: Yeah. It’s a lot to handle.

Nick: Yeah, it is. But I know sharon’s very excited for faith. She’s gonna get through it.

Billy: I think someone needs a reminder that my mother has a flair for the dramatics. I’m sure it’s not a big deal.

Lily: Oh, okay, mr. Know-it-all. What do you think it’s gonna be about?

Billy: Well, I’m assuming that she’s planning another trip around the world, except this time she’s gonna go the other direction.

Lily: You think she would really call us all together for a conference call — including devon, by the way — to talk about traveling?

Billy: Isn’t he in virginia with amanda, supporting her while she spends time with her mother?

Lily: Yes. Exactly. And she would never interrupt his personal time for something trivial.

Billy: No, she wouldn’T. So maybe there is something major going on.

Lily: Right. So, were there any hints that she dropped to you about what it might be about?

Billy: Nope. Zero.

Nate: I know you had some reservations about it, but i refuse to believe this is a mistake. I’ve heard everyone’s criticisms, and I’ve taken them to heart. I’ve found ways to address the problems devon had with my idea. I found the perfect location, got all kinds of food trucks lined up for a bargain. And I’ve got devon’s favorite smoked barbecue.

Elena: I think it’s gonna take a lot more than a good meal to convince devon.

Nate: The robust projected ticket sales should do the trick. This music festival is gonna make a lot of money, not to mention all the positive buzz it’s gonna generate. Trust me on this.

Elena: But he already said no.

Nate: He said not now. He never completely vetoed it. So, I postponed the original date, and everything’s ready to roll.

Elena: Nate, I know this is the last thing you want to hear right now, but I am urging you to hold off on this until devon is back and he can approve the plan.

Nate: No. This has to happen now. Hi, I’m karen.

Nate: I’ve decided to take some of your earlier advice after all.

Elena: Can’t wait to hear which nugget of advice make the cut.

Nate: No matter how viable my music festival idea is, there’s no way devon’s gonna accept it.

Elena: Is that how you’re justifying going behind his back?

Nate: No, no, you’re right. I shouldn’t go rogue. I’ll be consulting with lily.

Elena: And you think lily’s gonna green-light this plan without devon’s input?

Nate: She’ll at least be fair. She’s open-minded. She’ll consider my idea based on its merit, whereas with devon, even if my music festival idea somehow ended world hunger and brought about peace, he would still find a way to reject it…

Elena: Nate —

Nate: …Because it came from me.

Elena: You’re exaggerating.

Nate: No, I’m not. He’s that hostile. If I’m going to get anything accomplished, I’m gonna have to find a way to maneuver around him.

Elena: I understand why you’re frustrated, but devon is still your boss. You can’t just cut him out of the loop. It would be professional suicide.

Nate: This isn’t the same as working at the hospital. You’re an excellent doctor, but the business world runs by different rules.

Elena: All I know is i wouldn’t want to work in a place where people were making decisions based on personal grievances.

Nate: It’s not objective like medicine. And, frankly, the consequences aren’t as dire. There’s no patient on an operating table with his life in my hands.

Elena: The stakes are still high. A music festival is a massive undertaking and something that devon would definitely want to be a part of.

Nate: He will be — once the ball gets rolling. Look, I wasn’t hired because of my degree or experience. I was hired because of my instincts. So I’m going to follow them. I’m tired of holding back to appease devon.

Elena: Okay. I love you, nate, and that is why I cannot let this go. I would be a horrible person if I did not try to convince you to slow down. Even if you think I’m wrong, can you please do this for me?

Victor: Now, you make sure that faith knows that if anyone gives her a hard time at that school, they have me to deal with, alright? I want her to succeed. I want her to study hard. Because your mother’s convinced she’ll be the next in line of the many female ceos of newman enterprises.

Nick: Well, my daughter has told me that is exactly what she wants.

Victor: And that’s why we need to make sure that newman enterprises continues to thrive, alright? Now, how’s it going with victoria’s proposed acquisitions?

Nick: Some companies are extremely willing to sell. Others are gonna need more convincing. But I think by the end of the quarter, you’re gonna see a lot of movement.

Victor: You’re making a lot of good moves, son. Once we have replaced sally spectra and find us someone to run newman media, that division will make a lot of money again.

Sally: How are things at jabot?

Adam: Uh, there are a few sharks in the water, but, um, i still feel like I made the right decision. Stepping away from my family.

Sally: Glad things are working out.

Adam: Mm-hmm. I know you’re in a good place. I just read the good news about newman media beating quarterly expectations for growth.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] I know you a flair for understatement.

Adam: [ Chuckling ] Okay. Apologies. Better than good.

Sally: The numbers are spectacular, actually. It’s been quite a thrill. And if I am being truly honest, I have you to thank for it.

Nate: Hey, billy.

Billy: Hey, man. If you’re here for the big video call, you’re a little early.

Nate: Actually, I’m looking for lily. I wanted to let her know what I’ve been working on.

Billy: Ah, she just popped out for a second, but she’ll be back any minute.

Nate: Okay. I’ll wait.

Billy: Alright.

Nate: Any idea what this, uh, conference call with jill is all about?

Billy: No idea, but if she’s got devon on the call while he’s out of town, it’s got to be something big. Alright. I’ll bite. I’ll mention the, uh, elephant in the room.

Nate: What are you talking about?

Billy: Look, I think lily and I are both a little concerned that your transition here hasn’t been quite as smooth as we all hoped. Am I wrong?

Nate: To be honest, billy, I’m tired of my ideas being bypassed or ignored.

Billy: By devon.

Nate: Even when lily likes something, he is hell bent on shutting me down. His negativity makes no sense to me. It’s condescending and insulting. The man has everything going for him, and I could not be happier about that. So, why does my cousin have it in for me?

Billy: Look, I’m not gonna speak for devon, um, but I do know that historically he’s been a little cautious when it comes to business.

Nate: I suppose that’s possible, but I think it’s our personal connection that’s complicating the situation. How do you and lily keep this relationship with ceo and coo going so flawlessly?

Billy: That is a whole other dynamic, man. Um, but, you know, I’m just trying to keep a low profile, support her and let her shine. I also don’t have the same drive and ambition that you do, and that is not a slight at all. I admire that.

Nate: Thank you.

Billy: Look, I’m not gonna second-guess devon, but i believe — and I know lily does, too — that it would be a huge loss for our team and this company if you were to walk away.

Nate: I don’t want it to come to that, either.

Billy: That’s good. I’m glad to hear that.

Nate: Thank you for being supportive, billy. I really appreciate it. I needed that today.

Billy: Hey, man, I’m just speaking the truth.

Nate: You know what? Since lily’s not here, you mind if I pitch that idea that i mentioned earlier to you?

Billy: Yeah, of course, but you know I have no ability to green-light anything, right? It would be from one coo to another coo.

Nate: No, but I respect your opinion. And I’m sure you can gauge lily’s feelings about what she likes and what she dislikes.

Billy: I’d like to think so.

Nate: So, you willing to hear me out?

Billy: Fire away.

Nate: Then, on the second stage, we’d have a few singers we were considering signing to the label so we can gauge the crowd’s response.

Billy: Onsite market research. That is very clever.

Nate: I’ve considered this from every angle. This music festival is not just gonna be a promotional opportunity for chancellor-winters. There’s a solid business case for it.

Billy: I agree. I think it’s fantastic, man, and it gives you an opportunity to strut stuff a little bit.

Nate: [ Laughs ] That is not my motivation, I swear.

Billy: That’s fine, but you know what? You, uh — you got good instincts, and it gives you an opportunity to prove that you’re here for a reason.

Nate: Well, then it plays a huge part.

Billy: There you go.

Nate: But that’s just the rough sketch. I wanted everyone to see what’s possible.

Lily: Hello.

Billy: Hey.

Lily: What did I walk in on?

Billy: Well, nate was just sharing his improvements on the music festival idea that he’s running with.

Nate: You still haven’t given me your opinion.

Billy: I think it’s great, honestly. I think it’s got massive potential for huge success.

Nate: I knew I was onto something.

Lily: Did you run this by devon?

Nate: Not yet.

Lily: Oh, okay. Well, I’m a little worried what his reaction might be. But, um, I want to hear more. But let’s chat about it after our mysterious video call with jill. Hi. Are jill and devon ready for the conference call? Okay, great. We’re ready. Patch us in. Thanks.

Billy: Hey, if you see an opening, I think you should share the improvements to the music festival idea with the group.

Nate: Uh, I don’t know if it’s ready for jill and devon to hear just yet.

Billy: Well, I think it’s great, and I would be surprised if everybody didn’t think the same.

Lily: Jill.

Jill: Lily.

Billy: Hey, mom.

Jill: Hello, son.

Lily: Devon, good to see you.

Nate: Hey, devon. How’s everything going in virginia? And how’s naya?

Devon: She’s holding steady. She’s — she’s doing alright. I appreciate you asking.

Lily: Well, good. Send our love.

Devon: Always.

Jill: And moses. How is our favorite college freshman?

Devon: He’s doing good. Sofia sent pictures, and it looks like he’s settling in really well.

Jill: Mm. I’m sure he’s gonna have a wonderful time.

Lily: So, the big question is, why are we being summoned?

Jill: [ Chuckling ] Oh, getting down to business. I love it. Okay. Hold on to your seats, everybody, ’cause I have a proposal that could change everything.

Nick: Look, dad, I’ve thought about it, and I’m not gonna replace sally. She’s green, but she’s learning. She’s doing a great job. I think she’s gonna prove to be a very valuable leader for us someday.

Victor: What do you base that on?

Nick: The latest numbers. They’re great.

Victor: The latest numbers are due to what adam put in place.

Nick: While I appreciate how much you respect adam’s skills, do you think it’s completely fair to assume that all the success we’ve had with newman media is because of adam?

Victor: Since when have you become such a fan of sally spectra?

Nick: Dad, I’ve just been watching her very closely. She’s killing it, you know? She’s made some pivotal decisions on the fly. I can’t say I would have made them any differently. Now, I know you want the company to be completely family-run, but that’s not always the best and only solution. And, frankly, dad, we’re running out of newmans. I mean, faith can’t run her own division until she at least graduates college.

Victor: I feel very strongly about what I’m about to say. Family is what makes our company strong. Jack abbott just committed an egregious mistake by hiring adam as co-ceo of jabot. That’s a mistake for jabot and a mistake for adam. I may not have any say over there, but I will continue to guide the major decisions of our company.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Sharon: So, what did I miss?

Nick: Uh, nothing. Just some business talk. Don’t want to bore you to death.

Sharon: No, I’d really like to get caught up on what’s going on. It would be a good distraction.

Victor: Alright. Well, then… here it goes. Sally spectra will get the pink slip. And you ought to take her place.

Nick: [ Sighs ]

Adam: I want credit for nothing, good or bad, that happened after my rather abrupt departure from newman media, okay? That victory lap is all yours.

Sally: I will take my share of the credit, but I wouldn’t have even been in the position to achieve the win if it weren’t for you.

Adam: I didn’t do anything.

Sally: You believed in me.

Adam: Mm.

Sally: And you saw a career path for me that I didn’t even see for myself at first. So [Sighs] Even though I may resent the hell out of your methods, you made sure that i kept the job after you resigned. So, even though you may have broken my heart, you left me with something very rewarding.

Adam: You said that with complete sincerity, not an ounce of snark.

Sally: Because it’s the truth.

Adam: Does that mean you’ve forgiven me?

Sally: Is there even anything to forgive? I’m jonathan lawson

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Nick: Sharon, this conversation needs to stay between us.

Sharon: Of course.

Nick: Sally’s dismissal is not a done deal. And this is the first I’ve heard that you want me to take over her position. And why would you want that, dad? Why would you want to remove me from the corporate leadership team? Vick has said over and over again that she loves working with me. And I get it. We make a great team.

Victor: Don’t you understand that you’ll still be with the company? I’m just asking you to protect one of its most valuable assets.

Nick: Well, I’m doing what i want to do right now. And I know you’re only suggesting this because you think it’s a slap in adam’s face. I don’t want to be a part of that ’cause I don’t think adam deserves it right now.

Adam: What do you mean, there’s nothing to forgive? I thought that you wanted me to earn my shot at redemption. And I was fully prepared to do what it took.

Sally: There’s nothing that you need to do because i realized something about you, adam. You are who you are.

Adam: [ Scoffs ] What are you saying? That, um, I’m a jerk that is incapable of changing?

Sally: Maybe.

Adam: You know, you really do make me laugh.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] Well, I guess I’m just that clever.

Adam: Among other things.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] Even if I was saying that you are a jerk who is never, ever going to change his ways, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.

Adam: Why not?

Sally: ‘Cause you’re the jerk I fell in love with.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Billy: Well, don’t leave us hanging. What’s the big proposal?

Jill: Before we get to my reason for setting up this meeting, I would like to hear updates on what you’ve all been doing.

Devon: Yeah, we’re getting a lot of great press with the new acts that we’ve signed.

Jill: Fantastic. And how’s our newest executive doing? Nate, are you getting the lay of the land?

Nate: Yeah, I’m doing my best to contribute to the team.

Billy: Nate’s doing great. He’s improved upon what our first music festival could look like.

Devon: I-I was under the impression we put a pin in that because it’s too much too soon for the company.

Billy: I think it’s got massive potential, and I think we should hear him out.

Nate: Listen, I don’t want you to think I didn’t take your concerns to heart. I understand you want to play it safe while the merger’s so young, and the timeline worried you.

Devon: Yeah, that’s part of it.

Nate: So I pushed back the date. Crunching the numbers, with that in mind, should still give us a healthy profit margin.

Devon: Okay, but these — these numbers you’ve crunched — these aren’t real-world numbers. These are calculations, and they rarely hold up when it comes to live events.

Nate: Compared with other festivals with the same breadth and scope that we’re going for, I think what I came up with will be pretty accurate.

Devon: Right, but you’re comparing festivals that are already established, and we’re not that at all. There’s too many unpredictable factors here. You can have artists pull out, and then we’re responsible for refunds. So, it’s — it’s a bit too much financial uncertainty.

Nate: I can counter all your objections. I’ve spoken with vendors and organizations that are ready and eager to do business with us. And we can address all your concerns by hooking the festival up with a charity, maybe the abbott-winters foundation. So, even if we don’t hit those numbers you’re so concerned about, which I highly doubt, we still come out on top for promoting and donating to a worthy cause.

Lily: You’ve done a lot of work on this, nate.

Devon: Yeah, after I said to pause the conversation.

Nate: Lionel hunter even agreed to perform.

Lily: What?! Wow. My dad loved him. He had all of his albums.

Nate: And he said he’d do it for free if it was for a worthy cause.

Lily: Oh, my god, nate, that’s amazing.

Devon: So, you’ve already spoken to artists about this?

Nate: And other organizations to confirm those numbers you’re so worried about.

Jill: Wow, that’s enterprising.

Nate: We could start the wheels moving on this as soon as tomorrow.

Devon: I, um — I just — I don’t understand why you don’t want to believe that I know what I’m talking about when it comes to this.

Billy: What nate’s come up with is solid, and he’s improved upon the original idea.

Devon: No. I’m aware of that. And it has nothing to do with the idea. I think it’s a great one. It’s about the timing. And I don’t think it’s right for our company right now. And I have a decade of experience to back that up.

Lily: Okay, gentlemen —

Jill: No, no, no, no. It’s okay. I respect strong opinions. And I have to say that I am intrigued. So, what do you think of this, lily? Do you like the idea? Did you know if you turn to cold with tide

Nate: So, what’s your answer?

Lily: I mean — well, I need, you know, time to look at the data that nate pulled together and, you know, look at the festival from every angle.

Jill: Good idea.

Lily: Yeah, and, you know, let’s discuss this in house when devon returns from virginia.

Devon: Sure. That sounds fine.

Jill: Look, you all know that I support healthy, rigorous debate. It keeps everybody on their toes. But, lord, I have to tell you it does my heart proud to see how passionate you all are about this company.

Nate: As long as everyone’s keeping an open mind.

Jill: That is exactly right. We have to stay flexible. We have to be receptive to new ideas.

Lily: Well, I’m dying to hear what new ideas you’ve been working on.

Billy: Yeah. You still haven’t told us what the reason for the conference call is.

Lily: It sounded very important.

Jill: First, let me thank you for all the hard work that you have done in making this merger happen because chancellor-winters — we’re in a very strong position. We are poised to do incredible things. We know it, and now so does the rest of the world. And all the buzz that we’ve generated — that’s what has led me to contemplate making another big move.

Lily: What do you have in mind?

Jill: I want to take the company public.

Nick: Look, you want to take pot shots at adam, dad, do your thing. I just don’t want to be a part of it. I think adam’s been through enough lately.

Victor: Son… I’m absolutely stunned hearing you defend your brother, knowing full well he turned his back on his whole family.

Nick: Adam made what he thought was the healthiest decision for himself to walk away from the company. And the battle between the two of you always brings out the worst in him, so maybe this is a good thing.

Victor: What, are you blaming me for his decisions? He’s a grown man.

Sharon: You’re right. He is a grown man. One who’s tried to win a place in your heart for a long time. I’m really impressed by the way nick is standing up for adam.

Nick: I’m seeing him in a different light these days. Now, I still disagree with the vast majority of his decisions, but I think I understand his psyche better. Plus, adam and I share a strange but tragic thing.

Victor: What are you talking about?

Nick: Well, you helped both of us avoid the repercussions of taking another man’s life.

Victor: I don’t think we should discuss this right now.

Nick: Dad, it’s okay. Sharon knows everything.

Adam: Well, I will certainly take the mantle of jerk. It’s certainly, um, one of the tamer names I’ve been called.

Sally: I mean, I could come up with something spicier if you’d like. I’m just not really sure it’s necessary at this point.

Adam: I doubt it. But you should know that, um, according to the american association of bars —

Sally: Not to be confused with the bar association for actual lawyers?

Adam: Mm-hmm. Back to my, uh, premise — if you share a confession while having a drink, you get one in return.

Sally: [ Breathes deeply ] Okay. I am bracing myself.

Adam: You may have fallen in love with a jerk, but I fell in love with the one woman that i never felt the need to pretend anything with… except for one time. And I know that I fell into some bad patterns, and I am genuinely sorry, sally.

Sally: [ Inhales deeply ] Well [Clears throat] We’ve moved past all that, right? We have admitted that we really did fall in love with each other. Our egos have been soothed. So, now that we’ve cleared the air, we can just sit back, have a cordial cocktail as… friends.

Adam: I don’t feel like just a friend right now. (Vo) when you live with moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Victor: Son, this is a very delicate family matter. I don’t think it should be discussed with anyone else.

Nick: You should be glad i have sharon to confide in. I’m still struggling with what i had to do that night.

Victor: You did nothing wrong. Time for you to get over it.

Nick: Both sharon and adam think I should talk to a therapist so I don’t bottle the feelings I’m having inside and just let them fester the way adam did.

Victor: Look… I protected my sons. And I’ll be damned if i apologize for it.

Nick: You don’t have to. I’m not accusing you of anything. I understand you did what you felt was right. I just find it interesting that this might finally be the thing that makes me understand what makes adam tick.

Victor: [ Sighs heavily ]

Sally: [ Exhales heavily ]

[ Cellphone dings ]

[ Sighs ]

Adam: [ Clears throat ] Something important?

Sally: [ Sighs ] It’s chloe. Something at work needs my immediate attention.

Adam: What’s wrong?

Sally: I just thought for the briefest of seconds maybe she was here and this text was a way to lure me away from you, but she’s not here, so this must be a genuine emergency.

Adam: You really have to go?

Sally: Yeah, I, uh, really… definitely do… for many reasons.

[ Sighs ]

Adam: I am glad that we can talk like this again.

Sally: So am I.

[ Breathes deeply ]

Jill: Going public would increase our development capital exponentially. Plus, it would help fund the kind of expansion that nate is so passionate about pursuing.

Billy: Uh, I think it’s a pretty big step.

Jill: Billy, no, this is the time for big, bold moves. Don’t you agree, nate?

Nate: Well, of course I do, but I don’t —

Jill: And why would we waste our time on one little music festival?

Devon: Well, thank you.

Jill: No, when we could have an entire worldwide circuit of them? Okay, tell me what you all think.

Lily: Well, I mean, I-I need time to digest. I mean, this kind of caught me off guard.

Jill: Devon?

Devon: Yeah, uh, I increase our development capital exponentially. Plus, it would help fund the kind of expansion that nate is so passionate about pursuing.

Billy: Uh, I think it’s a pretty big step.

Jill: Billy, no, this is the time for big, bold moves. Don’t you agree, nate?

Nate: Well, of course I do, but I don’t —

Jill: And why would we waste our time on one little music festival?

Devon: Well, thank you.

Jill: No, when we could have an entire worldwide circuit of them? Okay, tell me what you all think.

Lily: Well, I mean, I-I need time to digest. I mean, this kind of caught me off guard.

Jill: Devon?

Devon: Yeah, uh, I think that, uh — I think that going public, it sounds like we’re gonna be giving up a lot of control.

Billy: I agree with devon.

Devon: I also think that control is probably more important right now than just an influx of cash.

Nate: To some people, control is everything.

Devon: I think that we shouldn’t lose sight of the concept that appealed to all of us when we started this, and that’s that it would be a family company, you know, not one that’s publicly traded and owned.

Jack: But, devon, imagine all the opportunities and the possibilities.

Lily: What do you think, nate?

Nate: This is obviously above my pay grade. Thank you for including me in the question, but I’ll leave it to the experts to answer. Thank you again for including me.

Jill: Would someone like to tell me what the heck that was all about?

Billy: [ Sighs ]

Nate: The cancellation fee. How much did you say it would be? Okay. That’s what I’m saying. Cancel it. Invoice me. The company will cover it.

Elena: Nate, what’s going on?

Nate: You were right. Working with my cousins was a huge mistake. I’m out.

Next on “the young and the restless”…

Nikki: I am going to L.A. To confront the one person who may have some information — deacon sharpe.
