Provided By SuzanneKayla: Her pulse is normal...not thready. There's no indication of an overdose.
Belle: Thank God.
Kayla: This has been such a hard year for her. Abigail... so young and a mother. My heart just breaks for them. Jenn. I am so sorry.
Jennifer: [Moaning] What...
Jennifer: Kayla... [Groans] [Exhales] Belle? What are you doing here?
Theo: I should go now. My dad's gonna be worried and I-I don't feel like putting him through that tonight.
Claire: All right, well, I mean, I had a lot of fun.
Theo: Yeah, me too.
Claire: Before you go, can we talk about the kiss?
Claire: Or, you know, you could just text your dad and tell him that you're hanging out with me. Then you wouldn't have to worry him or leave.
Theo: I don't know...
Claire: Oh, please! I mean, no one will be home for a while, so we could... watch a movie, make some popcorn, maybe like get a little crazy and have some soda.
Theo: Wow, you're a rebel, aren't you?
Claire: You know it.
Theo: All right, I'll stay. But only because I love soda.
Claire: Figured that would tempt you.
Ciara: Thomas, it's okay.
Ciara: Shh. Everything's gonna be okay, Thomas. Come on.
Ciara: Look, Daddy brought your favorite toy. Where was it?
Chad: Under the sink.
Ciara: How did it--
Chad: I don't know.
Chad: He probably just senses things that are--are wrong. He misses his mom and it's been forever since he's seen her and probably knows she's never coming back.
[Baby stops crying]
Ciara: You think so?
Chad: I don't know, babies sense things.
Ciara: Yeah, they do. But maybe it's you. I mean, you've been really sad and depressed lately. But it's weird because he usually calms down after, like, I hold him for a little bit.
Chad: It's because you're tense. You haven't exactly been yourself lately either.
Ciara: If I'm tense, it's because I can't get him to stop crying. No other reason.
Chad: Yeah? Has nothing to do with you telling me you love me a few hours ago?
Jennifer: I... I-I remember checking in. But I, um... oh, God. No, this-- this is not what it looks like.
Kayla: We're not judging--
Jennifer: No, no. It's--it's not. I-I'm okay. I-I'M... my little girl is gone and then... then it just led me back here and then... [Sobs]
Jennifer: You have people to help you. It's just-- just a minor setback. Just a minor setback.
Jennifer: You gonna help me too? Or are you gonna tell Chad and use this against me?
Theo: Um, don't miss this part. You're probably gonna like it.
Claire: Oh, you've-- you've seen this one before?
Claire: Okay, well, how come you didn't say anything? I mean, we could have watched one that neither of us have seen.
Theo: Oh, I don't mind.
Claire: Who'd you see it with?
Theo: Ciara. We watched it together after... you know, what happened with chase and I wanted to cheer her up so I brought over a ton of new movies that I thought she might like and she picked this one. She ended up really liking it a lot. She actually petitioned online for a sequel.
Claire: Okay, well, I'm not a huge fan of sequels.
Theo: Yeah, I don't think she got anywhere with it.
Claire: Well, you know, let's just... let's just choose a different movie, maybe one that you like.
Theo: No, no, no, no, I do like this one. Really, I'm telling you. This part coming up? It's the quote-worthy moment of the movie. I mean, Ciara could not stop laughing at it. I've never seen her so happy--
Claire: Okay, okay, we're done. Let's do something else now.
Ciara: You think it's because of that? Because I told you how I feel? Well, that's not it. Not at all. You can trust me.
Chad: It's okay. Come here.
[Baby stops crying]
Chad: That's right, that's right.
Ciara: Wow. All he needed was his...
Chad: His father.
Ciara: Sorry I couldn't help comfort him. Look, I know what you want to say. When I told you that I loved you, you probably thought that I'm just some naive girl that has a crush on her boss. Yeah. And that it's probably just an infatuation. But it's not. I do love you... with all my heart. Aren't you gonna say something?
Chad: Ciara, I think-- I think you're great. And no, I don't think you're naive. It's been wonderful that you've helped out with Thomas so much, but I'm sorry, I can't reciprocate your feelings. I don't love you.
Belle: Listen to me, Jenn, please. You have to believe me. I am not here as Chad's attorney, okay? I'm here as your family. My heart is breaking for you. Nothing could be more painful than this.
Jennifer: How did you find me? Did you have someone follow me?
Kayla: You know, Jennifer, what difference does it make? The reason that you're not at university hospital right now is because she called me when she found you instead of 911.
Belle: That's true. To an extent. I...[Clears throat] I did have you followed. And I came here to take photos of you passed out with the pills and alcohol.
Jennifer: Why didn't you?
Belle: Because I'm a mother too. I can't even begin to understand how unbearable this must be for you. I would never exploit that.
Jennifer: Thank you. I just want to go home.
Theo: You're upset. You didn't like the movie?
Claire: No, no. Theo, it's not that.
Theo: Ah. Must be because I won't shut up about Ciara.
Claire: [Chuckles] Bingo.
Theo: I'm sorry. I mean, I thought you would like it because... Ciara liked it and it became--
Claire: Favorite. Yeah, her favorite, I know. You've made it very clear how much Ciara liked the movie. I'll actually never forget, you know, not even if I tried. 'Cause you'll probably mention it, like, a thousand more times.
Theo: Okay, I'll stop. I promise. I mean, you were the one who picked it, so...
Claire: Oh, okay. You're missing the point here, aren't you?
Theo: I guess. I do that a lot actually.
Claire: Look, Theo, I-I'm not mad, I'm just--
Theo: You seem a little mad.
Claire: No, no, it's not that. Just... I don't know. Um... Theo, uh, when two people, like you and me, are alone... like each other, and one of us suggests we watch a movie? It just usually doesn't mean the other one talks through it the entire time, especially about another girl.
Theo: What does it mean then?
Claire: It means... we make out like we did before.
Theo: We kissed once. And it was after you sang your song because we were feeling sad about Abigail.
Claire: Yeah, but, Theo, it's different this time. Do you regret it then?
Theo: What, the kiss?
Claire: Yeah, I mean, you seem pretty hesitant to do it again. Are you sorry we kissed?
Chad: I know this is hard to understand, but--
Ciara: It's not true. I know you love me. You can deny it all you want but I'm not gonna believe you.
Chad: Ciara, would you please just--
Ciara: Don't "Ciara, please" me. Every since I started working here, every since Abigail went away, you opened up to me. You let me in. And I helped you.
Chad: Yes, and I thank you for that, but my intentions were never to... look, Ciara, you're confused.
Ciara: I am not confused. You are.
Chad: You need to calm down.
Ciara: I am calm.
Chad: Good, then please try to see things clearly.
Ciara: You're the one that needs to see things clearly, Chad. I have been here for you. I was here for you when Abigail went to shady hills. I was here for you when you were going through all that pain. I have been here all this time. And now that we know that Abigail's gone forever, I'm still here because you needed me. And because of that, we formed a bond and I was able to find the strength to tell you that I love you.
Chad: Ciara, this isn't the time.
Ciara: Why are you denying it? I know that you're going through all this pain about Abigail but--
Chad: No, no, no, but--but nothing. When I opened up to you, I wasn't myself. I allowed myself to be too open and too vulnerable because of what I was going through. And I forced you into a situation that I never wanted for you. I'm sorry, but what you are feeling right now, it's my fault.
Ciara: Your fault? What? You've nothing to feel guilty about.
Chad: Come on.
Ciara: Look, if it's the age difference, you're not even that much older than me.
Chad: Look, it's not the age difference, okay, it's... look, it's life experience. I-I have a child to take care of and I have a company to run and I-I'm married.
Ciara: Chad, come on. I've been through a lot too. I lost my dad. My mom suffered through that and then all that stuff with Aiden. And then what I went through with chase?
Chad: I know you've been through a lot lately and I'm sorry.
Ciara: Chad, we have a connection. You can't just stand there and tell me that you don't have feelings for me. 'Cause I can see it in your eyes. Every time you look at me. Look, I know that this is, like, really bad timing, but after it all settles down, we can... we can work through it. I know we can work it out. And until then, I'm totally fine just keeping this between you and me.
Chad: This is crazy--
Ciara: So what if it's crazy? Crazy can be good, right? I mean, when it's about love. And love's not even rational. We all know that. I mean, come on, Chad. I was honest with you about the way that I feel. Can you just be honest--
Chad: Stop, I-I'm--that's it. I'm being honest with you. I-I don't.
Theo: Um, I liked it.
Claire: You don't have to be embarrassed, Theo. I'm not. You know, we kissed and it was nice. No regrets.
Theo: Right, no regrets.
Claire: Because... I like you a lot and I have for a while. Didn't really realize how much until now. 'Cause I think you're smart, sensitive... you're a really good listener. And really sexy.
Theo: I don't know what to say.
Claire: Okay, well... how about something that you like about me?
Theo: I just...I've... I haven't kissed a lot of girls. You know, in fact, just one. Before you, I mean.
Claire: Yep, Ciara. Yeah, I know. But you and she are over now. And she's moved on and so should you 'cause you can't waste your whole life thinking about her and what could have been.
Theo: I know that.
Claire: Do you?
Julie: Jennifer, darling. Oh. Doug and I were so worried about you.
Jennifer: Julie, I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry to just walk out like that. Please forgive me.
Julie: I forgive you. It's forgiven, forgotten. Important thing is you're okay.
Jennifer: Where is Doug?
Julie: Oh, he's... he's playing cards with Larry zabner. He'll be home any minute now. Can I make you some tea?
Julie: Good. Would you like to join us?
Belle: Oh, now that she's in good hands, I really should go.
Jennifer: No, I-I want you to stay here.
Belle: I don't think that's a good idea.
Jennifer: No, I-I do. Because I want to keep an eye on you so you don't go tell Chad about what happened tonight.
Julie: Jennifer, darling, you're way out of line. Why would you accuse--
Jennifer: No, because she'll tell him and then--and then I won't be able to get Thomas. Don't you understand that? I could lose everything.
Julie: Honey, come in. Sit down, be quiet for a minute. Come on.
Kayla: Do you think you could stay? I think it would really help.
Jennifer: Where did you go? Did you call him?
Belle: Feel free to look through that. You won't find any incriminating photos, I promise. Take your time. I'm not going anywhere.
Chad: Ciara, I-- the last thing that I want to do is hurt you.
Ciara: Too late.
Chad: Ciara, will you please look at me? Just look at me. How do I make you understand that my heart... it's broken. Abby and I, we were finally together after everything that we had gone through. You know, we--we found our way to each other. And we were in love. And it was perfect. I-I can't even accept that she is gone, and I-I definitely am not able to move on, but if I were... [Stammering] It can't be-- it can't be with you.
Ciara: But maybe...you can. After some time has passed.
Chad: Look. You are... you're an amazing woman. Okay, and in many ways, you--you saved my life. But you deserve somebody who is gonna love you with all of their heart. That's not me. Now I think that you should probably... you should probably leave.
Chad: I don't think it would be okay for you to work here anymore.
Ciara: You're firing me?
Chad: I'll pay you through the end of the year, but...
Ciara: I don't want your money. I don't want anything from you.
Chad: It's okay. That's all better. You were just hungry, weren't you? Yeah. I bet you miss your mom too. So do I. I screwed everything up.
Chad: Yeah. All I ever wanted to do was be... a good husband. Good father. I should have never sent your mom to that institution. Yeah. She should have been at home with you and me. Getting better. I miss her. Now this stuff with Ciara... I'm never gonna screw up again. My baby boy, you deserve such an amazing life.
[Indistinct] That's what you're gonna get. Okay, I'm gonna make sure of that. I promise you. I love you.
Ciara: Mom? Are you home? I really need to talk. "Went to bed early. There's leftovers in the fridge. Love, mom." Great. "Can you talk?"
Theo: Aren't you gonna get that? See who it is?
Claire: No. Because our conversation is more important.
Theo: All right.
Claire: [Sighs] So it's becoming more and more clear that you regret kissing me.
Theo: No, I don't. No, no regrets, remember?
Claire: Well, yeah, but you do have regrets. And now so do I.
Claire: 'Cause... I thought we could have been good together. And had a lot of fun. And I'm so sorry for seeing something between us that wasn't there. Obviously, you're still too hung up on Ciara. Maybe you should go.
Theo: Just wait. All right, look, you're-- you're right about Ciara. Okay, I... I am sad how things ended, okay? I've been friends with Ciara ever since I was little. You know, but... we're grown up now. And things change. People change. And I have to let her go.
Claire: Do you mean it?
Theo: I do. I mean, it's gonna be a while for me to get over Ciara.
Claire: No, that's okay. I can help you. I'll be here for you.
Theo: I'd like that. And you were wrong about something.
Claire: And what was that?
Theo: Our kiss. I meant it when I said no regrets. And I'm not sorry that we kissed. Not at all.
Ciara: [Sighs] Damn it.
[Indistinct chatter on TV]
[TV shuts off] No. No. Hell no.
Kayla: Hey, belle, before we go in there, can I ask you something for a second?
Kayla: Were you serious when you said that you weren't gonna report Jennifer's relapse to Chad?
Belle: Kayla, of course. Listen, Shawn and I just found our way back to each other. The last thing I'd want to do is hurt him or his family.
Kayla: It's your family too. But I feel relieved. That's all I wanted to know. Thank you.
[Knock at door]
This is mister kitty.
Jennifer: Was there someone at the door? I thought I heard someone.
Julie: Yes, somebody was knocking. I have no idea who it was. And belle is handling it.
Jennifer: My head, it feels... it just feels so fuzzy and I feel so... ashamed of myself. All I was thinking about was--was numbing the pain and that is so selfish.
Kayla: You know what, Jennifer? You have a disease. And you obviously regret what happened.
Julie: Thank you, Kayla. I am so grateful to have the two of you in my life.
Kayla: You know what? There is a meeting at the hospital in just a little while.
Jennifer: Yeah, I know all about it because I helped make the flyers right before I stopped going.
Julie: Well, if you feel up to going now, I'd be really happy to take you.
Jennifer: I would like that. Thank you.
Belle: You need to leave. We can talk in the morning. Now's not a good time.
Chad: Well, I want to talk now. What's--what's going on?
Belle: Nothing. Jennifer's just a little under the weather.
Chad: What, she's sick?
Belle: She's not in a good place. And she's not physically able to take of Thomas right now.
Chad: Oh. So it's not about Abby. You said you had an investigator looking into her. What'd you find? Mm-hmm. She relapsed, didn't she?
Belle: Chad, go home. Take Thomas with you. Please.
Ciara: Hey, Claire, your door is--
Jennifer: I don't understand.
Kayla: Why would Chad be here at this hour?
Belle: I have no idea. Jennifer, I swear I did not tell him.
Jennifer: I believe you.
Belle: But I think he may have figured it out. I'm so sorry.
Jennifer: No, it's... if he suspects that I relapsed, then so be it. I mean, he has his resources with or without your help. And I'm just gonna have to deal with the consequences, that's all.
Ciara: Uh... I didn't mean to... you're door's open. I think I'm just gonna go.
Claire: No, wait, wait. I mean, you came by for a reason, so what's up?
Ciara: Yeah, you didn't get my text?
Claire: No, sorry. Yeah, there it is. I'm sorry.
Ciara: Yeah, I didn't hear back so I just thought I was gonna come by.
Theo: I was just leaving.
Claire: Wait, um, I mean, I didn't answer your text and you came over anyway, so something is obviously going on. What's up?
Ciara: It's-- it's not really-- it's nothing, okay? I just overreacted.
Claire: All right.
Ciara: Yeah, um... okay, I'm gonna go. Bye.
Theo: Should we go after her?
Claire: No, no, no, no. She'll be all right.
Theo: [Stammering] I'ma go. It's getting kinda late.
Theo: Are you mad?
Claire: No, no, no, no, no. I'm fine.
Theo: All right, cool, cool. Um, yeah, I'll call you tomorrow. Have a good night.
Claire: Thanks, you too.
Julie: Jennifer? You okay?
Jennifer: Yeah, Julie, I-I'm not really sure I can do this.
Julie: Yes, you can. Darling, you know, every person in that meetings gets it. It is not about judgment. It is about helping each other, supporting each other, giving each other the strength to stay on track. My dear cousin, you can do this.
Jennifer: You're right. I can do this.
Belle: Chad? We need to talk.
Chad: Jennifer relapsed, didn't she? Don't you lie to me.
Belle: Yes. Jennifer relapsed. Which basically ensures you custody of Thomas as long as you don't do anything to screw it up for yourself.
Chad: It's too late for that.
Belle: What do you mean?
Chad: I screwed up everything. I can't take care of my own son.
Belle: Fine. I'll handle this right now.
Ciara: Did you follow me?
Theo: No, I was going home.
Ciara: Well, then, just go home, Theo. Or go back to Claire's.
Ciara: So what? Are you guys, like, a couple now?
Theo: No, we're not a couple.
Ciara: Sure looked that way to me.
Theo: I mean, it's not anything serious, okay? We were just... we were just talking about we were sad about Abigail and then... I don't know, we just kissed. It just happened.
Ciara: You know what? I'm over it. It's none of my business anyway. I just--I want to be alone.
Theo: Okay, but... I mean, if you need anything and you want to just talk, call me any time, okay?
Ciara: Got it.
Jennifer: So when I found out that my daughter had died... I went to the park and I bought some pills, and then I bought a bottle of vodka to just wash it all down with, you know? And I knew that it wasn't gonna fill that hole, but the pain was so bad. It was--it was so unbearable. And I've realized that getting high was not the right thing to do. It was absolutely the wrong thing to do and I learned that the only way to get through pain is to just get... just get through it. And I also realized that I have so much to be thankful for. I-I have a son. I have a son who-- who loves me so well. I have an incredible family. And I have sweet, sweet friends. And I do still have my daughter Abigail. And she would want me... she would want me to be so strong. And she would want me to handle this with dignity and with courage. So that is what I'm going to do. So thank you so much and I'm really glad that you're all here.
Chad: Who the hell are you calling?
Belle: Social services.
Belle: Because in case of emergency, they have a 24-hour hotline. Hi, yes. My name is belle black. I'm here with a client who has just told me he can't take care of his child.
Chad: The hell do you think you're doing, really? Hello? There's not even anybody there.
Belle: No, there isn't.
Chad: Why the hell would you fake something like that?
Belle: Because I've told you before but it seems to bear repeating. I have no patience for self pity, and your son deserves better than a grief-stricken father and a pill-popping grandmother. And since neither of you can seem to take care of Thomas, I would have no choice but to call social services. And they would find him a foster home. Is that what you want? Is that what Abigail would have wanted? Well, it seems like you're getting it. So this is what I need you to do. I need you to call Ciara and tell her to come over here and take care of Thomas while you figure out how you're gonna get yourself together.
Chad: Ciara's unavailable.
Belle: Well, I guess that settles that.
Belle: I guess I'm gonna stay the night.
