Previously on "the young and the restless"...
Arturo: What are we doing?Sharon: Get over here. There's plenty of room. I promise to keep my hands to myself.
Phyllis: J.T. Emotionally and physically abused victoria.
Reed: Tell 'em, mom! Tell them that dad would never hurt you!
Victoria: I never wanted you to find out about it.
Nick: The fire poker?
Nikki: No, no, no, no! Don't touch it!
Nikki: It's a murder weapon.
Nick: How would you know that?
Nikki: Because I killed J.T.
Nick: Okay, mom -- mom, i think you're confused. You said you were responsible for J.T.'S death. Why would you say that?
Nikki: I didn't -- I didn't mean to do it. It just all happened so fast.
Nick: Okay, all right. Okay, let's sit down. Come on, right here.
Nikki: [ Cries ]
Nick: Sit down.
Nikki: [ Sighs ]
Nick: Okay, whatever is going on, we're gonna work it out. You say you're responsible. For what dad did. Dad killed J.T., But you think you're somehow to blame?
Nikki: No, nicholas! Listen to me. I killed J.T. And you need to know everything that happened.
Billy: I can't believe i didn't know. Everything that you've had to deal with. The way you've been suffering... I should have been here to protect you, vick, I'm sorry.
Victoria: I'm not sure what you could have done. It was a burden that I felt i had to bear on my own.
Billy: If I could take that pain away, if I could bear it for you, I would.
Billy: You don't have to be alone tonight. I can stay. I meant in the guest room. Geez, get your mind out of the gutter.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ] I know.
Billy: I just want to be here for you, that's all.
Victoria: You have been. You have been my everything lately. My rock, my anchor.
Victoria: When I said before that I loved you, I do. And I -- I love --
Billy: I got it.
Victoria: I just -- I'm not feeling comfortable with... I'm sorry, my emotions have been all over the place lately. I hope I'm not dragging you along on some ride that you don't want to be on.
Billy: I like rides. We're good.
Mia: Arturo, no, wait! Stop! Stop it!
Arturo: Mia, what the hell was that?
Mia: I don't know!
Arturo: Yes, you do! We both do.
Mia: Wh-what does that mean?
Arturo: That was a page right out of your old playbook. Invite me over, then the flirting begins, then a little walk down memory lane...
Mia: No, arturo, that's not --
Arturo: No, mia! And then right when my defenses are down, you ratchet it up! You pour your heart out about rey, you flash some insecurity, shed some tears...
Mia: You think I was doing all that to seduce you?
Arturo: I think that you get off by having some kind of power over me.
Mia: Okay, so our almost-kiss was about my ego? Not about the fact that our connection means that we are each other's first, not because our history means that your heart is in mine, and I am stamped into yours! You and I both know what was going on.
Arturo: Mia, you live for this drama. And toying with me, betraying rey -- what were you thinking?
Mia: Oh, you want to talk about rey? Let's talk about rey. I love your brother, okay? I love him so much. I moved here to try to save our marriage. I have done everything to have him forget the past, but he won't forget. In fact, he keeps punishing me for it, in more ways than one, okay?
[ Cries ] Rey makes me feel more alone and unhappy than I ever felt. It's when he withholds his love, his feelings for me. It's when I know he's not present the way that lovers and partners should be.
Arturo: [ Sighs ]
Mia: Arturo, you know me. I need someone who is all-in. Okay? Heart, body, soul. And nothing hurts me more when rey withholds this information like he did tonight when he didn't tell me that he was with sharon.
Arturo: You don't know that anything happened with sharon.
Mia: I know that he has feelings for her. I knew it when I came into town. I knew it when I saw the way they looked at each other. Those feelings don't just go away.
Arturo: We can't go down this rabbit hole again, mia.
Mia: [ Sniffles ]
Arturo: I'm gonna go before things --
Mia: No, no, no. Please. It's way too dangerous out there. You can't go home now.
Arturo: It's more dangerous in here.
Rey: Are you awake?
[ Sighs ]
when I get a cold, I need
medicine that works fast.
Nikki: Victoria had been living a nightmare I knew nothing about. I had my suspicions, and she finally let it all out. J.T.'S daily relentless criticisms, his isolation, the control... he was breaking her spirit, nicholas, a little bit at a time.
[ Sniffles ] And then when I found out that he had choked her, I thought, my god, how can this be? How can I not protect my child when she needs me the most?
Nick: If I'd known when J.T. Was in town...
Nikki: You don't know what you'd do until you're there, in the moment...
[ Sighs ] I heard the bedroom door slam, and I knew something was very wrong. I ran up the stairs, and I heard yelling. I heard things smashing. So I threw open the door, and he had her pinned against the dresser, and he was pounding his fist, he was hurting her, and he wasn't going to stop, and... my baby was fighting for her life. I'm her mother. I am her mother. And I guess I just snapped. I reached for whatever was closest, and I swung it as hard as I could. I -- I thought that I had knocked him unconscious. But he wasn't breathing. And he had no pulse. I mean, it was just one that one split-second.
[ Sighs ] God, then the horror set in. What had I done?
Nick: You did what you had to do.
Nikki: Oh, honey. Oh, thank god. Thank god you understand. We tried to revive him, but it was too late.
Nick: Who's we?
Nikki: Victoria and I.
Nick: Okay, well... I got to ask, mom. Why didn't -- why didn't you just call the police? This is clearly a case of self-defense.
Nikki: Was it? I wasn't in jeopardy. And I did hit him from behind.
Nick: But victoria was in danger. You were protecting your daughter.
Nikki: As it turned out, she wasn't seriously hurt, and there was no evidence that J.T. Had abused her. I mean, she -- she hadn't told anybody except her therapist. Because she was ashamed.
Nick: She was ashamed to tell us?
Nikki: That's how shame works. It's insidious. We struggled over what to do. We talked and cried. But we always came back to that same cold, hard fact, that J.T. Was gone, and nothing could ever change that.
Nick: So, what'd you do next?
Nikki: We made what turned out to be a very bad decision. We wrapped in him a carpet, and we took him to chancellor park.
Nick: Oh, my god.
Nikki: We buried him under katherine's sculpture.
Nick: Okay. Okay. How long's the body been there?
Nikki: For months.
Nick: Months? Mom, that whole time I was running around pretending to be J.T. --
Nikki: He was already dead. It was like seeing a ghost.
Nick: I'm so sorry. I'm -- I'm sorry, I know what that must have done to you.
Nikki: Stop that. Don't you be sorry for anything. None of this is your fault. I'm the one who deserves to be haunted by that night, by you as J.T., And by whoever is doing this!
Nick: The hell you do! Do you have any idea who is doing this to you?
Nikki: No. Sometimes, when my imagination gets away from me, I think it's J.T. Himself, but then I realize that that's impossible. That thing is making me feel like I'm seeing another ghost right now.
Nick: Where'd that come from?
Nikki: I don't know. That night, I threw it in the lake.
Nick: Okay, so somebody saw you do that. Then the fished it out, and they brought it back here.
Nikki: This isn't the first time something like this has happened.
Nick: The gun. And -- and J.T.'S shirt with the blood on it in the stables.
Nikki: And another time I came home to find the clothes that J.T. Had worn that night laid out on my bed, as if he was still wearing them.
Nick: Mom, why wouldn't you tell me that? I could have done something!
Nikki: I couldn't bring you into it, son.
Nick: So, instead, you dealt with this alone while this sicko's been terrorizing you?
Nikki: Oh, my god, I couldn't sleep and I couldn't think straight. That's -- that's when I started drinking.
Nick: All right. What we got to do is we got to amp up security around this place, all right? And not just the ranch. He's been inside your home, coming and going as they please.
Nikki: Honestly, I -- I really don't feel in danger, physically. I mean, if somebody had wanted to hurt me, they've had plenty of chances. Right now, I am more worried about your father. He is in jail for something he didn't do.
Nick: [ Sighs ] Dad is being framed. I went and saw him at the jail. I accused him of murdering J.T. He just sat there and he took it.
Nikki: That's because he knows that I killed J.T.
Nick: How's he know that? Did you tell him?
Nikki: I didn't have to. We didn't say it in words, but... I know that he knows. So, he is sitting in jail to protect me.
Nick: All right. Well, until he gets out of there, it's my job to protect you. It was here.
Nick: We'll station a guard in here 24/7. I'm also gonna double up security on the perimeter of the ranch, and someone is going to be with you and vick at all times.
Nikki: We don't want to bring any extra attention to ourselves. I mean, for now, we're gonna act as normal as possible and just carry on with our lives.
Nick: Well, our guys are good. They can be discreet. You won't even know they're there.
Nikki: Thank you, darling. I am just so happy that you know the truth now and you understand why I did what I did.
Nick: You've got to be honest with me going forward, all right? That's the only way this works.
Nikki: I agree. Honesty is a big part of my sobriety. In fact, I should probably go to a meeting.
Nick: Well, I'll let security know they're going with you.
Nikki: All right. Remember, we go about our day-to-day as if nothing is out of the ordinary. And, please... don't let this take over your life.
Nick: No one will know. But, from now on, my number-one priority is keeping you and my sister safe. And clearing dad's name.
Rey: Hey there.
Rey: Did you sleep well?
Sharon: Yeah. You?
Rey: Not really.
Sharon: Yeah. Me, either.
Rey: You really have to try to make a chair that lumpy.
Sharon: You know, I reached over to the other side of the bed and thought...
Rey: What, that I had left you? Come on, I wouldn't do that. Kind of hurts my feelings that you think I would.
Sharon: It was just for a second.
Rey: [ Clears throat ]
Sharon: [ Sighs ] How long do you think it'll take us to get back?
Rey: Uh, you know, the roads are clear. It shouldn't take us more than an hour. You got a big day?
Sharon: Um, no, just the usual. Work. You know, since mariah's looking after faith, I'm really in no hurry to get back. We could stop for breakfast on the way home, if you want.
Rey: That sounds good. I'm starving.
Sharon: There's a diner off the highway. They have this breakfast burrito that's as big as your head.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Rey: Oh, um... I need to call the --
Sharon: Your wife. Yeah. Of course.
[ Sighs ] Come on! Abby!
[ Shivers ] Oh, my god.
Abby: Hi, come in! What are you doing here?
Arturo: That message you sent last night -- I didn't get it till this morning.
Abby: Okay, well, when I sent that message and told you i missed you, I didn't mean that you had to rush over here in the freezing cold at the crack of dawn.
Arturo: I did have to because I couldn't wait another minute to see you.
Abby: That's so sweet.
Arturo: I need to tell you something, abby.
Abby: Okay. Is -- is everything all right?
Arturo: I just need to get this off my chest.
Abby: [ Chuckling ] You're starting to make me nervous. Did something happen?
Arturo: Abby. I love you.
Don't let your longwear
weigh you down.
Billy: What the hell were you thinking yesterday?
Phyllis: I don't want to get into this with you.
Billy: You kno, reed is a teenager trying to cope with his father's murder.
Phyllis: Yeah, I get that.
Billy: No, I don't think you do. The point of that memorial was to try and give him some closure. The amount of insensitivity and narcissism it takes to tell a grieving kid that his dead father was an abuser is unbelievable to me.
Phyllis: You know, I don't need a lecture from you. I have beaten myself up enough about this.
Billy: Wow, that's so typical of you. So you're the victim here?
Phyllis: That's not what i meant.
Billy: Reed is the victim, not you. Victoria's the victim, not you.
Phyllis: Exactly, and I was tired of people talking about J.T. Like he was some kind of angel. Knowing what he did to victoria.
Billy: It's not your place, phyllis. You understand how difficult it must have been for victoria to sit there and listen to people talk glowingly about the man who abused her? Did you think for a second that there's a reason why she's willing to do that? To protect her son. And you robbed her of handling that moment as a mother.
Phyllis: Okay. I am a parent, too. I should have kept my mouth shut.
Billy: You're damn right, you should have. You blew in there like a hurricane with no concern for anybody else, and you left reed and victoria and me to pick up the pieces.
Phyllis: You, reed, and victoria.
Billy: That's what I said.
Phyllis: Well, that's good. You're the knight in shining armor, that's great. Maybe you should be thanking me.
Billy: That's petty. Even for you.
Arturo: Say something. Please.
Abby: [ Laughs ] I'm just surprised, but... but so happy. I'm -- [ Laughs ] I'm just wondering -- why are you telling me this now?
Arturo: Well, because it's true, and I just -- I don't want to keep pretending it's not.
Abby: Good answer.
Arturo: Abby, last night, i couldn't sleep. So many things were running through my mind -- the choices I've made, why I act the way i do...
Abby: Tell me.
Arturo: A lot of times i think, you know, it's because I'm afraid, scared of getting hurt. That's why I keep things so casual, you know, at a safe distance. I've seen way too many train wrecks, and I lived one. Every time I see my parents' wedding photo, I wonder how those two people, those two young, smiling, happy people could end up so... broken and miserable and bitter. The way my father could hurt my mother so easily... it's like breathing to him. That's my biggest fear. I don't want to turn into him. I don't want to be that guy.
Abby: Hey. You are not him. I know you. You're not capable of that. You would never hurt me that way.
Mia: I've been calling.
Rey: Yeah, no, I had my phone turned off. I was trying to save the battery.
Mia: You sleep well?
Rey: Not really. It's a cheap motel. Lumpy bed.
Mia: Mm-hmm. Yeah, you know, cheap mattresses are no good, especially when you got a nice, luxurious one waiting for you at home.
Rey: I'm taking off in a few minutes. Is everything all right? Why'd you call?
Mia: Just checking in. Wanted to make sure you were okay.
Rey: I'll be home soon. I-I love you. So much.
Mia: Love you, too.
Sharon: You have nothing to feel guilty about.
Rey: Then why do I?
Sharon: I don't know. We almost had a car accident. We had no choice but to stay here for the night. There was no other option. And...we got through it.
Rey: Got through what?
Sharon: Look, we'll be back in town soon, and everything will return to normal. It'll be like nothing ever happened. Because nothing did.
Rey: So, no breakfast burrito?
Sharon: Mm, probably not a good idea.
"The young and the restless"
Billy: Sorry, I got here as soon as I could. I've been thinking about you and reed all morning.
Victoria: I'm not sure that i can do this right now. I'm exhausted.
Billy: Okay, then let me, uh, just say a couple things. Last night, when you told me that you loved me...
Victoria: I didn't --
Billy: I was hoping that you were gonna say that you wanted to get back together, because i think I've been clear where i stand there. I was grateful. Grateful that you would trust me enough to say that. Grateful that you would potentially maybe allow me to be that guy. And I guess what I want to say is that's enough for me right now. I'm just getting my life back on track. I'm going to meetings, and being here with you and spending time with the kids and connecting in that way has really... it's really helped me out. And for the first time in a long time, I can honestly say that i kind of like myself. I like my life. And I like this feeling. That's it. I want the status quo. What do you know?
Victoria: You make it sound so romantic.
Billy: It doesn't have to be romantic when it feels this right. I want to be able to be open with you, and I want you to be able to be open with me without any pressure or expectations, okay? That's it. How does that sound? Okay?
Victoria: That sounds perfect.
Billy: Good. So, how's reed? Have you seen him yet today?
Victoria: We really haven't talked that much. I think he's just taking the time and space that he needs to wade through his feelings.
Reed: I've been avoiding you.
Victoria: Honey. Come in. It's okay. Whatever you need. Whenever you're ready to talk, I'm here.
Reed: I didn't know what to say. Still don'T.
Victoria: I don't know what to say, either. But I know that we're gonna get through this.
Reed: I'm so sorry.
Victoria: Oh, honey, come here. I'm sorry, too.
Rey: Hey. Come here. Mmm. I'm glad I caught you before i went to work.
Mia: Why? It's just another day.
Rey: Yeah, it's just, I... I wanted to apologize for not making it home to you last night. If I could have made it back, I would have.
Mia: I know, um... I wanted you to be here, too. Was your trip a success? I mean, the reason you went to kenosha?
Rey: Yeah. Yeah. The drug bust? We got the bad guys. Thank you.
Mia: Of course you did. You're so...good.
Rey: What does that mean?
Mia: Oh, it's just that you're such a good cop, baby. You know. When you want to get someone, you get 'em.
Rey: Yeah. Yeah. But by the time we had booked the dealers, the snow and the black ice had made the roads undrivable.
Mia: I know. It was cold here, too.
Rey: It's warm here now. Did someone come by and fix the furnace?
Mia: Yeah. I called sharon, but... she wouldn't answer her phone. Found out she was on police business, too. In kenosha.
To most, he's
Victoria: You have absolutely nothing to be sorry about. Please tell me you understand that.
Reed: I was just so mean to you when I first got back, and then after hawaii, I just gave you so much grief about dad.
Victoria: You had no idea what was going on.
Reed: I still feel really bad about it.
Victoria: You shouldn'T. I should have handled it differently. I should have told you sooner. You had so many questions and no answers. It must have been... confusing and upsetting for you.
Reed: So my dad, he -- he was a bad person?
Victoria: No one's all good or all bad. He made some mistakes. I think he changed because his life didn't go the way that he planned it, and also for reasons that we'll never understand.
Reed: I just don't get it. I mean, I don't remember him like that at all.
Victoria: That's good. You should remember him in your own way. Just hold onto those memories. Cherish them.
Billy: He's your dad. He always will be.
Reed: Yeah. Thank you for having the memorial, mom. I can't imagine how hard that was for you.
Victoria: I just regret you finding out the way that you did, about what happened between me and your dad.
Billy: From the worst person possible.
Victoria: But it's a good thing that it's out in the open now. I think you deserve to know the truth. Even though it was hard to hear.
Reed: Yeah. I think things can actually start to get better now. And I've been thinking -- I can stay here, at home, for as long as you want me to.
Victoria: You want to stay here? Or do you want to get back to school?
Reed: [ Chuckles ] I think it'd be good for me to get back to school. So we can all get on with our lives.
Victoria: Yeah. I think it's time for us all to do that.
Abby: When dina forgets where her room is, things can spiral quickly, so I'm sorry about that.
Arturo: You never have to apologize for taking care of family. That's another thing I love about you -- you see family as something that fortifies you, makes you stronger.
Abby: And you don't?
Arturo: I'd like to, but... for me, it's always my family creating the hole in my life instead of filling it. I think that's one of the reasons why I balked when you tried to patch things up between me and rey.
Abby: I didn't realize how complicated things were between the two of you. The situation with mia, your relationship with her...
Arturo: Having an affair with mia was the biggest mistake of my life.
Abby: Hey. You don't have to explain.
Arturo: I want to. See, what we had was exciting, but we were so young. It was immature and dramatic and so unhealthy when I look back on it. But it was kind of the only thing I knew, so, in a way, it was safe for me. And I think I fell back into it a few years later because I was always afraid to want more. I didn't think I deserved better.
Abby: It's over now. You have to stop punishing yourself.
Arturo: I want to.
Mia: Why didn't you just tell me you were with sharon?
Rey: Because I knew how you'd react.
Mia: So it's my fault you lied to me.
Rey: I omitted something that I knew ould make you upset for no reason. What are you lying to me about?
Mia: Nothing. Well, I'm sure sharon will tell you that it was arturo who came over last night to fix the furnace.
Rey: And why would that upset me?
Mia: It shouldn'T.
Rey: I am happy that arturo was here for you. Truly.
Mia: You are?
Rey: Yes, because I am done with the drama. I'm ready to leave it in the past where it belongs. We need to be in a place where -- where we can trust each other, in a place where my brother can come over and fix the furnace, and I can go away on business with a co-worker.
Mia: A co-worker?
Rey: Our marriage needs to be stronger than our suspicions. Nothing happened with sharon. I swear.
Mia: Sometimes I just -- I miss you when you're gone. I get insecure, and I have dark thoughts, and they -- they make me go to a bad place.
Rey: Listen. The day I got to marry you... I felt like the luckiest man alive, and despite everything that has been thrown at us, we are still here. We are still together. Fighting for each other, fighting for our marriage. And I will be damned if I let that go now. Tell me you believe me.
Mia: I do.
Arturo: I know I've said it before, that I want to leave the past behind me, and... I've told myself that I want to live differently, but didn'T. But last night, something changed, abby, and it's because of you. I'm not scared anymore. I see a future I want with the woman I love. And that's why I came here way too early, because... I want that future to start now.
Phyllis: Okay, let me talk first, all right? There's no excuse for what i did, all right? Not to reed or to your sister. If there is something I can do to make it right, then I will do it. I will do anything and everything if it will help you forgive me. I will do it. Just tell me what to do.
Nick: Come over here and kiss me.
Phyllis: Does this mean...
Nick: You are forgiven.
Phyllis: Not that I'm pushing my luck, but why would you have a change of heart?
Nick: You didn't mean to hurt anyone. You got caught up in the moment. Nobody should be judged for that.
Nick: Your honesty, as brutal as it can be at times... it's one of things I love most about you.
