Previously on "the young and the restless"...

Abby: I want to open a restaurant.

Devon: Unless you have a chef that comes with some name recognition, I don't know if i can get behind it right now.

Lola: I need a waiter for a private dinner that I'm catering.

Reed: Mr. Ashby.

Cane: I just don't want you getting hurt again.

Mattie: I wish mom were here! She'd get it!

Nikki: I've met your husband a few times, mia. He's investigating the murder of my daughter's ex-husband. Are there any breaks in the case?

Tessa: [ Gasping ]

[Crying] It was nikki and victoria. They think that I moved J.T.'S body.

Billy: The police have evidence that link your dad to J.T.'S murder.

Reed: How could you not tell me that victor killed my dad?!

Victoria: I didn't say anything because I didn't want you to get upset.

Reed: Or know the truth! I heard you talking to billy. Grandpa killed dad!

Victoria: The police are wrong.

Reed: How could you be so sure?

Nikki: Reed, your grandfather is being framed. By whom and why, we don't know yet. But your mother and i both know that he would never do that to you. Anyone who cares about you would not want you to lose your father.

Victoria: The police are just looking for a solution, and they're just making it more complicated.

Nikki: Yeah, sad to say, your grandfather has made a lot of enemies.

Reed: Well, if he's found guilty, you can put me at the top of that list.

Mariah: Hey, sorry those --

Tessa: [ Gasps ] Stop!

Mariah: Tessa?

[ Tessa whimpering ] Tessa!

Tessa: [ Gasps ]

Mariah: Hey -- hey!

Tessa: Ugh!

Mariah: Hey, are -- are you okay? I think you were having a nightmare.

Tessa: [ Sighs ] Well [Clears throat] Considering all the nightmares I've caused, it's karma.

[ Coughs ]

Mariah: Look, you've messed up a lot, but this was not a result of karma. This was nikki and victoria terrorizing you. They think you have J.T.'S body, and that you're framing victor.

Tessa: Can we not talk about it? Uh, how was your day at the studio?

Mariah: Who cares? Please, would you just tell me everything? You'll feel better.

Tessa: No, I won'T.

Mariah: Where are you going?

Tessa: I just need some air, okay?

Mariah: Tessa, wait --

Tessa: Look, I know you can't trust me. But believe me when I say this -- talking about what happened to me, it's a bad idea. I'm sorry.

Mariah: Uh --

Fen: Hey. Uh, so... is this what you had in mind?

Lola: Yeah. Perfect.

Fen: Great.

Mia: She's right.

Lola: [ Sighs ] My sister-in-law, mia rosales. Fen baldwin.

Fen: It's great to meet you.

Mia: Same here. No kyle tonight?

Lola: I am working, and fen kindly agreed to help. At devon hamilton'S.

Mia: Whoa! You go, girl!

Lola: If devon likes my food, it could lead to fancy gigs. And, you know, his company throws events all the time.

Mia: Mm. Well, maybe you can get me an introduction? You know, all his singers he has on his record label must need their hair and makeup looked after.

Lola: We'll see.

Mia: Actually, I'll be, um, mingling with gc's a-list, as well, tonight. One of the town's most prominent residents booked a beauty consultation.

Lola: And who's that?

Mia: If it pays off the way I'm hoping... I'll let you know.

Devon: What's going on?

Abby: I have amazing news. After we talked, and you told me I needed to attach a celebrity chef to my restaurant-club idea...

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Abby: ...In order for you to back it, I took it to heart. I dove in deep. I looked at all of my contacts. And I found an amazing chef. From miami.

Devon: Really?

Abby: Yes, who just happens to be in wisconsin looking at sites for a potential new venture.

Devon: You're kidding.

Abby: I'm not kidding.

[ Laughs ]

Devon: Wow. Okay.

Abby: And I convinced them to give gc a try by having them cook a private dinner for the devon hamilton this evening at your place.

Devon: At my place?

Abby: Uh-huh.

Devon: Oh, wow. And what if I told you I had plans tonight.

Abby: Ugh. You do?

Devon: No, I don'T. Luck you.

Abby: [ Laughs ]

Devon: Who's the chef?

Abby: Well, you know, I-i don't want a famous name coloring your reaction. This is all about the food. That's what's important. We need to make sure that it's a right fit for the kind of atmosphere that we want to create.

Devon: Okay. So this is a blind taste-test?

Abby: Exactly. So, are you in?

Devon: Well, you can let yourself in early so that the chef can start preparing.

Abby: Perfect! Thank you so much!

Devon: But I want my sister ana to be there, as well. Because if I get behind any project, this meal has to blow her away, too.

Abby: Understood. Yep. I get it. Um... and I am confident that it will, considering the genius of all involved.

Victoria: Vengeance isn't the answer. It's not gonna bring your dad back.

Reed: I just want the truth. To honor my dad's memory by finding his murderer and making him pay. Whoever they may be.

Nikki: But we're not interested in the truth. Or justice. Only protecting your father. And ourselves. If reed ever found that out...

Charlie: Hey, dad.

Cane: Hey, guys.

Charlie: So, reed's still a sore subject. But I think I know just the thing that will lighten the mood around here.

Cane: Charlie --

Charlie: We should get some christmas decorations.

Cane: All right. Charlie --

Charlie: Look, dad, come on. We're less than two weeks away from christmas eve. Sam sure would enjoy it. I know I would.

Cane: Listen, guys, with your mom in prison, it just doesn't feel right, us celebrating and making the house, you know, bright and festive.

Charlie: So then what?

Mattie: We're just supposed to ignore the holidays?

Charlie: Tat's not what mom would want.

Cane: I can't do this, all right? I just can'T. Sorry.

Devon: I got to say, my intrigue and appetite are beyond piqued.

Abby: [ Chuckles ]

Ana: Thanks for arranging this, abby. I've never had a big-time chef prepare a meal for me at home.

Abby: Oh. [ Laughs ]

Ana: Is this how you eat all the time, devon?

Devon: I survive off of takeout more than anybody should.

Abby: Well, we are all in for a treat this evening -- a four-course meal of delicious and trendy cuban-fusion cuisine, per your menus.

Fen: Oh!

Devon: Okay.

Fen: I'm, uh, fen.

Devon: Thank you.

Fen: I'll be looking after you tonight.

Ana: Thank you.

Abby: Okay. I'm gonna let the chef know that we're ready for the first course.

Devon: Sounds good.

Ana: Thanks for inviting me to join tonight.

Devon: Oh, of course. You don't have to thank me. Your opinion is very, very important to me.

Lola: Marinated, chilled, and good to go.

Fen: Wow, those look amazing. Any for your --

Abby: Hey!

Fen: Ow!

Abby: No.

If you do a good job, then you might get the first pick of leftovers.

Lola: I will take these out, re-introduce myself. Explain to devon the journey I would like this meal to take him on.

Abby: Oh, lola, lola.

[ Chuckles nervously ] Your food, it needs no introduction. From bite one, devon will be on whatever journey you intended. You can't leave the kitchen.

Lola: Excuse me?

Abby: This dinner tonight, I-I-it's about me pitching a massive business idea to devon. And, you know, um, he hates interruptions, so please help me out here.

Fen: How?

Abby: Okay. Do as little talking as possible while serving him. And, please, just -- just stay in here until we're finished. And then, when we're done, you can go out there, you can take a bow. I-I -- I promise.

Lola: It's customary for the chef to go out and introduce themselves.

Abby: Yes. I agree. And you would be so adorable. But you really, really, really need to play this my way.

[ Sighs ] Can you promise me that? Please?

Nikki: So, reed is off school for weeks, with nothing else to do but obsess on his father's death and who might be responsible for it.

[ Sighs ] This is a powder keg.

Victoria: I'm just gonna do my best to keep him away from rey rosales.

Nikki: Please do. Because rey will just fire him up about your father.

Victoria: Yeah. Or, worse, imply that we weren't cooperative enough, and recruit reed as some kind of a spy.

Nikki: That's another reason why I need to find out exactly what rey thinks he has. You and I know your father is innocent, but we need to impress that upon rey.

Victoria: That's a commendable plan, mom. Although I'm not sure how you're gonna pull it off.

Nikki: You will. Starting tonight.

Abby: Appetizer feedback?

Devon: [ Sighs ] Well, I think you probably should have saved it for dessert, 'cause I don't know how you're gonna top that.

Ana: The best raw fish I've ever eaten. And devon has treated me to some crazy-expensive sushi.

Abby: [ Inhales sharply ] This scrumptious journey is only beginning. Heh...

Lola: I am in exile. Please be my eyes and ears.

Fen: Yeah, you got it.

Lola: Okay. So, what'd they think?

Fen: He was raving. And his sister was, too. Although, from the way she was checking me out, I think she might be more interested in the help than the meal.

Lola: Good for you. You should get her phone number. But not until you help me serve the meal of their lives.

Fen: All right.

Lola: Now, deliver my pasta.

Fen: On the double, chef. Hey, um... by the way, lola, you're rocking this so hard. Like, for real.

Lola: Thank you. But I am only as good as my last course.

Fen: Yeah.

Lola: Oh, hold on. Thank you.

Tessa: Hey.

Mariah: Hi.

Tessa: Sorry. I just needed to clear my head. But it was productive. I saw that gcac was hiring for holiday servers.

Mariah: Are you gonna apply for a job?

Tessa: Well, I mean, as long as devon hasn't been circulating my old publicity photo with "do not hire" stamped across my face.

Mariah: Heh... you know, I was, um, thinking, before you left... I just can't get over how upset you were.

Tessa: Can you try?

Mariah: How? I mean, tessa, you've been traumatized.

Tessa: I've survived worse, so...

Mariah: This was an attack by women that we know!

Tessa: I would love to drop the subject permanently, okay?

Mariah: I don't know that i can. And if you're not gonna tell me what happened, then... I'm gonna go to sharon. I'm gonna tell here the story, and then we can confront princess victoria and the richest ex-stripper in the world together.

Tessa: No! No, no, no. We can'T.

Mariah: Why not?

Tessa: Because I didn't -- I didn't tell you the whole truth. Nikki and victoria weren't alone. Sharon was there, too.

Mia: Please, come in.

Nikki: Well, thank you for fitting me in on such short notice.

Mia: Oh, nonsense. I'm honored. You are my first private consultation in genoa city in my new home salon. Let me take that for you.

Nikki: Thank you.

Mia: Yes, of course. Although I'm always very pleased to come to your place.

Nikki: Well, I was very pleased to have a change of scenery. Nowhere else I'd rather be tonight.

Reed: Mom?

[ Sighs ] I just want to tell you that I'm not mad at you. It's just this whole situation with dad.

[ Sighs ]

Victoria: I understand.

Reed: If you and grandma are sure grandpa didn't do it, then I-I believe you. Why didn't you just tell me that the cops suspected him? I mean, I can handle the truth.

Victoria: Did you know that i still see you as my handsome little boy? No matter how hard I try not to?

Reed: Could you please try a little harder?

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Okay. Deal. And, by the way, you get major points in the maturity department for coming down here and talking to me instead of resenting me on social media all night long, or whatever it is you're doing up there.

Reed: [ Scoffs ] Thank you, I guess.

[ Sighs ]

Victoria: You really have matured.

Reed: So you have noticed. Unlike some people.

Victoria: What does that mean?

Reed: [ Sighs ] Mattie's dad.

Victoria: What? Oh, come on. You just got back. What happened?

Reed: Mattie and I [Sighs] Kind of made up, as friends, online. And, you know, with everything she's going through with her mom and the prison sentence, she needed somebody. And with dad gone, I understood where she was coming from.

Victoria: I think it's really nice that you have each other to confide in.

Reed: We thought so, too. But when I went over there to catch up... mr. Ashby made it crystal clear that... I'm not welcome in his home, let alone her life.

Victoria: Oh, reed. I'm sorry. I thought he'd gotten past that.

Reed: Yeah, so did we. And I've been so responsible and productive.

Victoria: I know.

Reed: [ Sighs ] He obviously just doesn't care.

Victoria: Well, I do. You need friends like mattie. She's a very thoughtful young lady. You know, I knew that the night that she called the cops when you were drunk driving.

Reed: Heh... yeah. I forgave her for that a long time ago. Honestly, she saved me from doing a lot more damage.

Victoria: Wow. At this rate, you're gonna max out on your maturity points in your first week back.

Reed: [ Laughs ]

Victoria: [ Laughs ] So, do you have plans for the night? I could drive you or call you a car. It's your choice.

Reed: Mattie and I were gonna go to zelati's and get some pizza, but, you know...

Victoria: Oh.

Reed: I mean, I guess I could always just get one delivered and [Sighs] Crash early.

Victoria: Yeah, that sounds perfect. You can sleep in.

Reed: Yeah.

Victoria: Maybe you can hang out with mattie tomorrow.

Reed: Mom, I told you. Mr. Ashby --

Victoria: No, I -- I heard you. But on behalf of you and mattie, I have some very serious meddling to do. Come here.

Charlie: You told dad the truth. Mom would understand about you and reed.

Mattie: Still. What he heard me say was, "you're a horrible parent, and you don't understand me at all."

Charlie: That's not what you meant.

Mattie: When he gets home, I'll clarify that. And apologize. Then... he might be open to the concept of christmas.

Charlie: Probably. But I don't want to waste any time. Dad's ready to sit this whole year out, no problem. I think I'm gonna get the ball rolling on my own.

Mattie: That's not going to happen.

Charlie: What, you're gonna stop me?

Mattie: No, you dork. I'm going to help you.

Mia: Maybe the universe is giving my present early this year. I'm not questioning it. Just maximizing this chance to make you look even more glamorous.

Nikki: You made quite an impression on me at your party.

Mia: Hoping to do the same tonight. Seasonal drink before we dive in? These are my special candy-cane cocktails, with a precise infusion of peppermint schnapps.

Nikki: No, thank you. But, please, go ahead. I insist.

Mia: Oh, well, then, how about some custom-brewed hot tea? I'm a demon in the kitchen -- as long as I stick to liquids.

Nikki: [ Exhales softly ] Sounds great.

Mariah: Perfect. Ahh.

[ Water pouring ] Let's talk makeup. Wants? Needs?

Nikki: Well, um... I don't know. Something new for the holidays. Maybe something striking but not too heavy.

Mia: Mm.

Nikki: Just enough to get me noticed at all the events around town.

Mia: [ Sighs ] As someone... people build guest lists around, any advice for a gc newbie who'd be thrilled to get on the standby page?

Nikki: [ Chuckles ] Well, it's not like buying a ticket to a sold-out event. Things are on a more intimate scale here than in miami.

Mia: I have to be invited.

Nikki: That's usually how it works.&

[ Chuckles ]

Mia: How is a chick with no clout supposed to get any invites if she can't network during the holidays?

Nikki: Networking is just socializing with the right people. Which you're doing.

Mia: Then my new friendships become recommendations to the friends of my new friends?

Nikki: Basic social advancement.

Mia: So, if I do you right, perhaps you'd consider making some intros for me? Putting in the odd good word? And suddenly I am the dreaded, pushy hairdresser no one wants to recommend.

Nikki: Oh, no, no, no. That's not at all what I was thinking. You're a doll. I would love to have a friend like you. And to lead you into the social scene in genoa city.

Mia: I don't know what to say.

Nikki: Yeah, neither do I. It's just that... I-I'm not sure what I can say -- or should say -- because of your husband.

"The young and the restless"

will continue.

Abby: That fig ravioli -- pretty amazing, right?

Ana: Was there a sauce? It's all a delicious blur.

Abby: [ Laughs ] Sage butter with grated pecorino.

Ana: Right.

Abby: Mm-hmm.

Ana: And that shrimp dish! So...

Abby: My thoughts exactly.

[ Abby and ana laugh ]

Fen: All right. Countdown to dessert and coffee. Anything else I can get you, uh, mister -- mr. Hamilton?

Devon: No. No, I think I'm good. Um... what was your name again? Sorry.

Ana: Fen, right?

Fen: Yes. Fen -- fen baldwin.

Devon: That's right. I knew I recognized you. You're michael and lauren's son, right?

Fen: Yeah. You know, I-I think I used to know you when we were kids. Um... I'm a musician now.

Devon: Oh.

Ana: Oh, you do look familiar. And a musician?

Fen: Actually, uh, I happen to have a demo on me of the kind of stuff I've been working on right now -- you know, when I'm not waiting tables. Um... if you don't mind, whenever you get the chance...

Devon: Yeah, yeah. Thank you.

Fen: No pressure.

Abby: Well, you know, um, fen, I -- I think we're ready for the final course.

Now.

Fen: Awesome. All right. I'll be right back with those desserts.

Devon: Thanks, fen.

Abby: Okay. Um, if you'll please excuse me for just one second, I'm gonna go check in with the chef.

Devon: Okay.

Abby: Thanks. I'll be -- be right back.

Devon: Thanks.

Abby: What the hell, fen?!

Lola: What? The food?

Abby: It's flawless. Unlike our server's judgment and listening skills.

Lola: Fen, what did you do? You didn't spill anything, did you?

Abby: Oh, he spilled all right. He foisted his music demo on devon right in the middle of service.

Lola: You did?!

Fen: It was just, like, 20 seconds, okay? 40 seconds max. I just... I w-- [ Sighs ]

Lola: If I didn't need you to deliver my final course, you would be out on your butt.

Fen: I wasn't trying to sabotage anything.

Abby: Try it again and you won't need the elevator to reach the sidewalk.

Lola: [ Huffs ]

Abby: Hmm.

[ Sighs ]

Tessa: I apologize again.

Mariah: For what?

Tessa: For not telling you the whole truth. Trying to keep sharon out of it. It was clear that she was uncomfortable, and that she hated what nikki and victoria were doing. They were in charge.

Mariah: Sharon is a social worker. She helps counsel battered women. How could she let them do that to you? To the woman that I love?

Mia: I had no idea rey thought your family had anything to do with his murder case. He...doesn't really bring his work home with him.

Nikki: Mm. Yeah, he's questioned my kids and me several times. Now he's fixated on my husband. I don't understand it. Victor is completely innocent.

Mia: Mm.

Nikki: I mean, I know rey's a good man, he's a good cop. Devoted to his job. He's very thorough. But...

Mia: He's making life hell for you.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] Well. There's a reason why my husband's unauthorized biography was named "ruthless." He wouldn't blink an eye defending himself, or possibly retaliating against rey's reputation. Might even try to get him fired for wrongfully accusing him.

[ Gasps ] I'm sorry. I-I shouldn't be saying these things.

Mia: No, you can. I'm not my husband.

Nikki: Yeah, but it's not fair to you. Still [Sighs] I am hoping you could do something to make rey realize that he's made a mistake.

[ Sighs ] It seems we're both married to very stubborn men. But, you know, sometimes, only the wives can get through to them, and make them see things when nobody else can.

Mia: I'm sure I have no doubt about that. But rey's as tight-lipped at home as he is at work.

Nikki: Well, if a resourceful, good-looking woman like you can't get him to open up, then... I guess it's hopeless.

Mia: Hopeless is a state of mind.

Nikki: Really? You think so? I mean, if you could find out just enough for me to stop this insanity, we could save both of our husbands from so much unnecessary ugliness. And I would hate for things to become awkward between you and me. I mean, we're just getting to know each other.

Mia: [ Scoffs ] Well, uh... I promise you this -- I'll do my best to help. Your friendship means that much to me.

Nikki: Me too. For anyone to go that far

[Sighs] With so much at stake... that's a real friend.

Mia: Let's finish transforming you with a few key products I have. Back in a tick.

Nikki: Okay.

[ Footsteps recede ]

Cane: Well [Sighs] We might as well get this out of the way, huh?

Victoria: I'm a little shocked it's even necessary.

Cane: Me too.

Victoria: After everything that's happened since reed and mattie were dating, for both of our families... you don't see their ancient history repeating, do you?

Cane: Well, that's what I'm afraid of. But this time it could be worse for both kids.

Victoria: I'm not trying to cause any trouble or drama, either. But, that being said, reed is a different person now. He's more responsible. He owns up to his mistakes.

Cane: Yeah, mattie's over it. But I can't forget how reed hurt her. You know, and I'm worried, if it happens again --

Victoria: They're not dating.

Cane: Well, plenty can happen between now and january.

Cane: And mattie, you know, with her mom away, she's a lot more emotional and vulnerable than she was before, you know.

Victoria: And reed just learned from the police that his father's death has been labeled a murder.

Cane: So... what I'm worried about is, if two kids need a reason to say "the hell with it"...

Victoria: You're right. But if we forbid them from hanging out, I'm afraid it's just gonna drive them to more bad behavior.

Cane: Mm-hmm.

Victoria: And they're each other's emotional support right now because they're going through similar pain. They've been in touch for a while now.

Cane: Since when?

Victoria: Since lily's accident.

Cane: [ Sighs heavily ] Okay.

Victoria: It's a positive...

Cane: I see. Okay.

Victoria: ...I think, in an avalanche of heartbreak. I plan on telling mattie that she's welcome at my house any time.

Cane: You know she didn't tell me? That's how out of sync I am with my own daughter. I don't know what I'm doing.

Victoria: I think you're trying to be the best father that you can possibly be.

Cane: Yeah, this single-parent thing, it's, uh... it's like, every day, I'm getting punched in the stomach, you know? And I have full-time help, but it just doesn't matter.

Victoria: That doesn't tell you how you can protect your kids, and it doesn't convince you that you're not failing the people that are most important to you.

Cane: You know, I have all this help. It's like there's this hole inside me, and I can't fill it in. Christmas is approaching, and i feel like it's just getting bigger, you know?

Victoria: Do you know what I've been doing? I've been taking each day as it comes, and finding something in it that makes the kids happy.

Cane: [ Exhales softly ] Okay. And how's that working for you?

Victoria: Once i made the choice, I felt a difference right away.

Mia: Thoughts, please?

Nikki: Oh, I feel so much better since our talk. And this, it's -- it's just amazing. I love it.

Mia: Oh! Thank you.

Nikki: Well, thank you. Thank you for being so perceptive and a good listener and direct. In fact, you remind me a lot of me at your age.

Mia: That's a supreme compliment. Thank you.

Nikki: Well, we do have a fair bit in common, you know.

Mia: No, I don't know. You're nikki newman, and I'm not.

[ Laughs ]

Nikki: Oh! Before that, I was nikki reed -- working-class girl living a very non-luxury life.

Mia: You must be joking.

Nikki: I am not. In fact, when I met victor newman, I was... working at the only job option i had, really, at a little dive outside of town called the bayou.

Mia: Bartending?

Nikki: Uh, no. That came later. I was a dancer.

Mia: Oh, hell no!

Nikki: Hell, yes!

Mia: [ Laughs ] How long till victor found out your sexy secret?

Nikki: Oh, secret? Darling, I was on that stage the very first time victor laid eyes on me, so... it worked out pretty well.

Mia: You went from strip club to country club [Snaps] Instantly.

[ Laughs ]

Nikki: Oh, hardly, hardly. I had a lot to learn about behaving like a lady and being able to mix in with victor's society set. And so can you.

Mia: And if I bomb out, you can always teach me your old routines.

Nikki: [ Chuckles ] Well, I don't know about that. But here's your first lesson.

Mia: Hmm?

Nikki: The wealth, the social status --

Mia: Oh, don't tell me they mean nothing.

Nikki: Oh, I would never say that.

Mia: [ Laughs ]

Nikki: With it is a hell of a lot better than without it.

Mia: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: No. Your family and your closest friends, those are the people that you fight for, that you protect and stay closest to, because they are really the most important people of all.

[ Sighs happily ] Mmm! This is so fantastic. Did I say that already?

[ Mia laughs ] But how am I gonna maintain this at home?

Mia: Oh, well, you'll just have to hire me to do that for you.

Nikki: [ Chuckles ] Well, you're right. I've got no choice. There you are.

Mia: It's our first appointment. You really want to start over-tipping me?

Nikki: Too late now. It's christmas.

Mia: This has been my best night since moving here. Thank you, nikki.

Nikki: Ohh. Thank you. I look forward to a long, mutually beneficial relationship.

Abby: Clearly you enjoyed dinner. But was it exceptional? For my nerves, just bottom-line it.

Devon: [ Sighs ] Well, I always try to. And, to be honest, abby... this was probably one of the most exceptional meals I've ever had in my life, honestly.

Abby: Ohh!

Ana: I disagree.

Devon: You do?

Ana: Strongly.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Ana: It wasn't "one of" anything. It was the best dinner I've ever eaten.

[ Laughs ]

Abby: [ Laughs ] You are evil.

Ana: [ Giggles ]

Abby: So, what do you say? Are we gonna open the hottest, hippest joint in town?

Ana: With the best food, cooked by the greatest chef?

Abby: Mm-hmm.

Devon: We have to talk terms first.

Abby: All right. Let's hear them.

Devon: Well, for my connections, and my ability to mint this place on the a-list, I want to be able to make executive decisions, and bring home half the gross.

Abby: Okay. I cave.

Devon: Yeah?

Abby: Let's do this.

Devon: All right, well, that brings me to my final stipulation.

Abby: Ana, you heard him say "final." Okay. Let's hear it.

Devon: [ Chuckles ] I just want to meet this mystery chef. Can you bring him out?

Abby: Heh...

Abby: All right. Now presenting tonight's celebrity chef... lola rosales!

Lola: "Celebrity"?

Devon: Abby...you lied to me.

Abby: Okay. Okay. Um... [ Chuckles nervously ] Everyone just chill out, okay? It's a big win for all of us. Let me explain.

Devon: Go ahead.

Abby: I decided to open the hottest, most exciting restaurant hangout in gc history. Serving food from rising star lola rosales. And, you see, devon, he -- he wanted a named chef for an easy sell and built-in pr. And, yes, I totally get that. Lola is unknown. But, devon, her food sells itself. So I decide to do an open-minded, blind taste-test to prove my point. No pressure on my partner or my culinary discovery. And it worked. [ Laughs ] So, brava, lola. Congrats, devon. And, hey, let's give it up for your girl, visionary, right here. Right here. Yeah. Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Heh... you're not backing out now, are you?

Devon: [ Sighs ] Well... I'm not thrilled that you played me.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Devon: But you are right that it is all about the food, and not about how famous the chef is. And you know this is still gonna be difficult, right?

Abby: I do. Yes, I do. A-and I totally get it. I am going to work my butt off. I promise you that. But, devon, I need you to be 100% behind this. I can only do this with you. And lola.

Devon: Lola hasn't even accepted an offer yet.

Lola: Uh... [ Exhales ] An offer that i didn't even know about.

Devon: Yeah.

Abby: Look, I'm sorry. I'm sorry, devon. I'm sorry, lola, that I wasn't completely honest with you. Lola, I believe in you. And I -- I knew your food would do all of the talking for us. I -- we... [ Laughs ]

Devon: [ Chuckles ]

Abby: Right? "We"?

Devon: Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm.

Abby: We want you [Sighs] To be the chef at the new restaurant that we're opening. We are still opening a restaurant, right?

Devon: Oh, we are if lola agrees to cook the way she did tonight. What do you say?

Lola: Well... y-yes.

Abby: [ Squeals ]

Devon: Yeah?

Lola: I mean... yes! Oh, my god! Is this really happening?

Devon: Nice. [ Chuckles ]

Abby: It just did. Thanks to you. Aaah! Come here!

Charlie: Is this okay, or is it just sad?

Mattie: It's appropriate. The main event is in the living room, and we nailed it, so...

Charlie: Yeah. I think mom would approve.

Mattie: She'd strongly disapprove, loudly, if we had grinched-out and put in zero effort.

Charlie: Well, we had to, even if it was only to see sam freak out.

Mattie: [ Chuckles ]

Cane: Yeah, well, I hope sam's not the only christmas-crazed kid in this house. I just spent three hours looking for this...

Charlie: Oh, ho!

Cane: ...Beautiful, enormous thing.

Charlie: Oh, that's so cool, dad!

Mattie: Yeah. We're gonna need a lot more decorations, though.

Cane: Yeah, well, luckily, I stopped by the chancellor estate and esther gave me a crateful. They're in the back seat of the car. Go get them.

Charlie: Yeah, all right.

Cane: [ Sighs ]

Mattie: I am so happy you... changed your mind.

Cane: Yeah.

Mattie: What did it?

Cane: Well, uh, I got this infusion of christmas spirit from the last person in town I expected to get it from, so...

Tessa: We both can't be sidelined by nikki and victoria's stupid scare tactic.

Mariah: And sharon. She was there, too. She doesn't get a pass.

Tessa: They probably forced her to come.

Mariah: No, they forced you. The three of them.

Tessa: Okay, yeah. There's no sense in whitewashing it. But now -- now can we put it behind us?

Mariah: No. Not if it means sharon gets away with being there. Saying nothing, watching them torment you, that'S... just not gonna work for me.

Nikki: Victoria? Victoria?

Victoria: Mom? Hello?

Nikki: Hey!

Victoria: Hey.

Nikki: Where'd you go?

Victoria: Me? Oh, do you have some secret late-night plans or something? Look at you.

Nikki: [ Chuckles ] I've already seen to them. The makeover was my ticket in. To mia rosales. So I can start fixing things for your father.

Victoria: Mia?

Nikki: Wife of top cop causing our problems? This way, she can further our agenda while slipping me a few tidbits about her husband's case.

Victoria: And you trust her? Why would she do that for you?

Nikki: It wasn't a difficult negotiation, victoria. Mia has certain goals she would like to achieve in town... quickly. And they require friends in high places, so she and I are about to become very close.

Victoria: If detective rosales gets even the smallest idea of what you and mia are up to, you're gonna become his number-one suspect. Until he makes it a fiendish foursome with the rest of us!

Nikki: You're being paranoid.

Victoria: And you're being too relaxed about the whole thing, or else you would see that involving mia in this...it might have been a fatal mistake.
