Episode #11546 ~ Nick defends his family; Summer pushes Kyle's buttons; Phyllis is investigated.
Provided By SuzannePreviously on "the young and the restless"...
Nick: [ Sighs ] We're talking about multiple video screens, each with their own audio feed. Full-blown surveillance of the entire house.
Kyle: I don't want to see you get hurt.
Summer: Well, I'm a big girl, so I can handle myself.
Kyle: Yeah, that's what you said about billy.
Lola: I can't tell if you're trying to convince me that we're good, or that you're trying to convince yourself that summer can't get to you.
Lauren: Didn't you get the text that our models got stuck in new york? I found the perfect replacement for -- well, now you only have to find one.
Fen: Apparently being a hot recording star is a real turn-on. Just ask summer.
Kyle: Okay. Anything else?
Phyllis: The photographer uploaded the photos from your shoot.
Kyle: Yeah? What's the verdict? How bad are they? Using you [Sighs] To replace the no-show model was probably the worst decision I have ever made.
Kyle: That bad, huh?
Phyllis: That good. Now I have to worry about modeling agencies poaching my hardest working team member.
Kyle: [ Chuckles ] Don't forget I have a back-up plan when it's time to renegotiate my contract.
Phyllis: I am sending you a file, uh, with some changes that need to be made and whatever needs to be fixed. Uh, if you can get those edits back to me fast, that would be great. Thank you so much, kyle. Fantastic job. Okay. Bye-bye. Hi.
Phyllis: What brings you by?
Summer: Oh, just thought you could use your mid-morning caffeine rush.
Phyllis: Bless you.
Summer: Uh, so, that was kyle?
Phyllis: Mm-hmm. He's editing some photos from our latest campaign. No news from newman?
Summer: No. Victoria hasn't figured out what projects I'm working on yet, so I've got a lot of time on my hands.
Phyllis: Honey, be grateful, you know? Because when they start piling on the work, that's when fun time is over. Get together with some of your friends.
Summer: Uh, and those would be...?
Phyllis: The ones you hang with, eat with, play with.
Summer: All right. And that would be none.
Phyllis: Really? What about kyle? Weren't you guys getting tight before you left for dubai?
Summer: Uh, well, if, uh, things were weird before, they are just downright awkward now.
Phyllis: How so?
Summer: When I was fixated on billy, kyle couldn't get enough of me. And I would barely give him the time of day. After billy, I guess I had this rude awakening that kyle was the one that I should have been with all this time. You know, he gets me. He's never tried to change me or fix me, and he's always there. No matter what. But by the time I realized that there could be anything real between us, he already found lola.
Kyle: [ Sighs ]
Mariah: Working hard or hardly working?
Kyle: Dad jokes? Really? I expected more of you.
Mariah: I'm sorry, are you afraid that I'm gonna catch a glimpse of some super-secret jabot files and air them all over "gc buzz"?
Kyle: Nope. 'Cause you're too good a friend, and know how to keep a secret.
Mariah: That is the best compliment I've received today. And you know what? I'm gonna take it.
Kyle: What's new in your world?
Mariah: Um, not much, actually. Well, tessa's got an interview at a new restaurant with this up-and-coming chef. I wonder if you've heard of it.
Kyle: You know, I actually have heard something about that.
[ Mariah chuckles ] I also hear this particular chef has an incredible boyfriend.
Kyle: So she's definitely got good taste in people.
[ Both laugh ] Tessa's a shoo-in.
Mariah: I really hope you're right.
Kyle: Are you kidding? She's the best barista your mom ever hired. Practically had my coffee waiting for me before I could order it.
Mariah: It's crazy how everything is falling into place for lola. First the food truck, then the pop-up, and now this restaurant with abby and devon.
Kyle: [ Sighs ] She put in a lot of hard work to get this far. And she's got a lot more to go.
Mariah: You don't sound too enthused about that.
Kyle: Eh. It's nothing.
Mariah: [ Scoffs ] Which means it's definitely something, so spill.
Kyle: It's like... her love for cooking and I are always competing for her time.
Mariah: Well, it is her first love, kyle.
Kyle: Yeah, but I --
Mariah: And the next time you have a big project or a massive deadline, she's gonna be the one missing you. You have to face it -- you guys both have careers that are very demanding. Just means that you have to work harder to make the time that you do spend together special.
Kyle: [ Sighs ] We're trying. She managed to fit me into her schedule the last couple nights.
Mariah: So why so glum?
Kyle: It's like we're not connecting like we used to. Maybe we're coming off the high of being in a new relationship. Maybe she's preoccupied.
Mariah: Maybe you are.
Kyle: What do you mean?
Mariah: Well, I'm just gonna go out on a limb here, but is it a coincidence that you're feeling a lack of connection with lola the same week that summer comes back into town?
Nick: Thanks for coming by.
Michael: [ Scoffs ] Of course I was gonna come by. You said you found actual evidence that somebody's framing victor. I have to see this with my own eyes. So. How'd you find it?
Nick: This is gonna sound crazy.
Michael: I'm a lawyer. I swim in a sea of crazy.
Nick: Yesterday, while katie was at my parents' house, she got lost.
Michael: Lost in the house?
Nick: In the walls.
Michael: Uh-huh. Oh, really? Oh. But, uh, how'd she get there?
Nick: We're not sure. I told you it was gonna be crazy.
Michael: Yeah, well, you did not disappoint.
Nick: Once we opened the walls, we found in there some surveillance equipment. Somebody has been in there spying on my family for I don't know how long. Here's the thing -- for a while, katie's been saying that she's been playing at the ranch with her "friend." Now, we all assumed that this was just her imagination.
Michael: Did she describe this friend?
Nick: Just a man dressed in black. Now, whoever this is is the same person who took one of dad's guns and put the bloody shirt in the stables.
Michael: Maybe the same person who murdered J.T.
Nick: I don't think anyone murdered J.T., Michael. I think the intruder is J.T.
Kyle: [ Sighs ] I told you, what is going on with lola and I has nothing to do with summer. Nothing. At all.
Mariah: How did you find out that summer was back in town? Did she have herself hand-delivered to your office? Did she roll in like cleopatra?
Mariah: But, I mean, practically, right? This is summer we're talking about. So, what did she want?
Kyle: Uh --
Mariah: Actually, let me rephrase. What did she say she wanted?
Kyle: To let me know that she had grown up while in dubai, that she was going to respect my boundaries.
Mariah: Oh, nothing. That's usually something tyrants say before they conquer a country.
Kyle: I've been conquered.
[ Sighs ] By lola.
Mariah: Do you really think that summer cares? Has she seen you two together?
Kyle: Yeah, at the club the other night.
Mariah: Okay. Details?
Kyle: It was nothing. She had a date with fen. They sat at the bar, 10 feet away, and before they had their first drink, they were eating each other's faces.
Mariah: So you had no choice but to look.
Mariah: But you did the mature thing that all people in committed relationship do and you ignored her, right? Right?
Summer: Well, I put it all out there three months ago and told kyle how I felt.
Phyllis: How'd that go over?
Summer: Like a lead balloon. And now he refuses to spend any time with me, because apparently it wouldn't be "appropriate."
Phyllis: Now I know why you were dead-set on going halfway around the world to work for victor.
Summer: You know, I was in a country full of strangers, and never felt as lonely as I do here.
Phyllis: You know, fen's back in town.
Summer: Yeah, I know. We went out the other night.
Summer: He thought so.
Phyllis: Oh. Well, you know, you could always hang out with your mom.
Summer: Thank you, but... well...
Phyllis: Am I not lit enough to be #fam?
Summer: Wha-- what?
Phyllis: Did I just make you super cringey?
Summer: [ Laughs ] Like, off-the-charts cringey, yes.
[ Chuckles ] I love you, but please never say words like that ever again.
Phyllis: Okay. Do you have any idea how much I missed you while you were gone? I want us to hang out, okay? I want to grab a movie, get some dinner, just overdose on quality time.
Summer: Okay, I completely ruined everything between you and billy. I was a totally selfish brat. I mean, there is no way that you could ever completely forgive me for any of that. Is there?
Abby: Good, you're here. Can you help me? Lend a hand, please?
Lola: What's all this?
Abby: This is, before we start interviewing potential new waiters, I want to make sure that we're on the same page about what and who we are looking for.
Abby: So. We want our guests to have a different experience than a typical night out at a standard restaurant. They are leaving their humdrum routines and putting their hopes and dreams for a transformative night in our hands. We want our waitstaff to be friendly.
[ Chuckles ] They have to have an amazing palate to give amazing recommendations, be passionate about the food that we are serving.
[ Chuckles ] They have to know our guests -- who they are, what they want, what they're looking for -- and remember them when they come back -- and give them something that they never expected. And what they wear has to be a reflection of that. It has to stand out.
Lola: Definitely. Clean, exciting, and one-of-a-kind.
Abby: Precisely. So... what do you think of these?
Lola: I love them! They don't even look like uniforms.
Abby: Right? It's sexy, exciting, unforgettable.
Lola: Like my food.
Abby: What I was thinking, yes. And we want our waitstaff to connect with that aesthetic.
Lola: You know, that's your thing, because I just need qualified, reliable workers with great people skills.
Abby: Who can give an exceptional experience.
Lola: Great minds.
Abby: I knew we'd make an amazing team.
[ Laughs ]
Lola: You know, as long as these, uh, super-chic outfits are for the front of the house and not the kitchen staff, we're all good.
Abby: Mm. I don't know. I think our chef would turn some heads in this.
Lola: Are you kidding? Your fiancé would never let me out of the house in that. Not even for a date.
Abby: Okay, well, then, we will find something that works for you, our restaurant, and the thousands of people who will beat a path to our doors. The joy is in the journey.
Lola: Bon voyage.
Abby: [ Chuckles ] Cheers.
Lola: Cheers. Mmm!
Phyllis: Have I [Sighs] Said or done anything to make you feel like I have a grudge?
Summer: No, I -- I tried to steal your boyfriend. I just don't -- I don't know how you can just let that go.
Phyllis: I may not like everything you do. But my love for you is unbreakable. No matter what. And you're gonna understand that one day when you're a mom.
Summer: No. God, no. Do not wish that on me.
Phyllis: Everything is working out for the best. Uh, your dad and I are happy. Life is good.
Summer: And billy is out of your system?
Phyllis: You know, it's a -- it's a funny thing. When you take a step back from a person, you finally get clarity.
Summer: So that's a yes?
Phyllis: You know, we are managing to work together, and that's a minor miracle. But that is as far as it goes.
Summer: Yeah, I mean, I guess forgiving him wouldn't really change anything, anyway, since there's no way billy will ever forgive you for cheating on him with dad.
Phyllis: [ Inhales sharply ] Life moves on. But, um... you know, I-I am happy, but there is maybe one thing that would actually make me happier. I would really like you back in my life.
Summer: Okay, well, with your frenzied social calendar, how are you ever gonna fit me in?
Phyllis: Well, nothing is more important than you, okay? And I have to get that -- more of a -- a work/life balance, okay? What do you say we do a mani/pedi night with a movie marathon? How's that sound?
Summer: Like you think I'm still 12.
Phyllis: You will always be my little girl. Okay? You're gonna have to get used to it, okay, kid?
Mariah: Oh, we have a tessa update. She says that there are about a half a million people there.
[ Snorts ] She tends to exaggerate when she's nervous. And they haven't called her in for an interview yet. "Namaste, baby. You got this. I love you."
Kyle: You guys are good together.
Mariah: Yeah. We are. Now stop trying to change the subject.
Kyle: Was I?
Mariah: Yeah, 'cause you were in the middle of talking about how irresistible summer is.
Kyle: Way to twist my words. What I said is, summer was distracting. She was making out with fen. Like right in front of me. What was I supposed to do?
Mariah: Pay the bill. Go home with your gorgeous girlfriend. Get another table.
Kyle: There will never be anything between us. Not romantically, not platonically.
Mariah: Not sexually? Kyle, the girl puts on a slinky dress, she does a hair flip, she sashays across a room, and you can't take your eyes off of her. You think that lola doesn't notice something like that? And then what? You waste your precious time talking about it. Or worse, you don't talk about it, and then your night turns into a five-hour summer consumption.
Kyle: It was 90 minutes. And summer came up once. Maybe twice. And lola knows summer's no threat to her.
Mariah: Of course lola is gonna be threatened by her boyfriend's ex hanging around. Especially since you two haven'T... wait. Please tell me -- please, please tell me you have not told summer that lola is a virgin.
Kyle: Of course not. But that's not the problem I was talking about.
Mariah: Well, you were talking about a lack of connection.
Kyle: Emotionally. Because her head is in her job right now.
Mariah: Okay. Fine. But you're really gonna sit there and tell me that you don't miss it? You know, the physical aspect of a relationship?
Kyle: Of course I miss it. But that's not the issue here. And why are you assuming it is? Just because I'm a guy? I'm fine without sex. Totally fine. Couldn't be better.
Michael: This equipment was found where?
Nick: The crawl space. I'm hoping you can take this, maybe get some, uh, dna or fingerprints off it, use the serial numbers to figure out who this intruder is.
Michael: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'll get it all checked out. Who else knows about this?
Nick: My parents, billy, vick. I told phyllis, and now you --
Michael: Whoa! Phyllis? Are you sure about that? Considering?
Nick: She didn't originally think my dad was being framed, but she does now. I'm hoping, with all this evidence, you can convince the D.A. Now to --
Michael: [ Sighs ] I know you think whoever planted the false evidence in the stables is spying on your parents, but I'm not sure christine will see it that cut-and-dry.
Nick: She will if we can prove it's J.T. Look, he knows how to get past the guards. He knows where all the blind spots are on the cameras. He knows the layout of the ranch. He knows exactly where my dad keeps his guns. It would be so easy for him to steal on, put it in the stables. Take off one of his shirts, throw some blood on it...
[ Clicks tongue ]
Michael: How do you explain the dna they found in chancellor park?
Nick: He wouldn't be the first person to fake his own death.
Michael: Well, you've got a point there. Look, I will get this to a lab and let you know if they find anything.
Michael: Even without all this evidence, there's a good chance I can get the charges against victor dropped. I mean, christine isn't exactly chasing down the judge to set a trial date.
Nick: Yeah, I heard about that. Just getting the charges dropped is no longer good enough. Whoever is doing this has been in my parents' home spying on them. They need to be stopped.
Kyle: If you'll excuse me, I have a deadline.
Mariah: Kyle, I didn't mean to make it sound like you're this guy who has nothing but sex on the brain.
Kyle: Thank you.
Mariah: I just meant that you and summer have a lot of history. Inside jokes. You know, she knows the way you like your coffee. She's been there for stupid mistakes, bad decisions. And I also know how hard it is to turn your back on somebody like that, even after they've left scars. But I am telling you, she's gonna use that closeness against you.
Kyle: [ Sighs ] Part of me says, "shut her down. Shut her out. You owe her nothing."
Mariah: Yes. That is the part that you listen to. That other voice, the voice that is trying to convince you that you can have it both ways, that says, "summer's nice. She could be my bud" -- no! That girl is the devil in a new dress. So that other voice, it's a relationship killer.
Kyle: I don't need summer in my life.
Kyle: I have lola.
Mariah: And she's smart and talented, ambitious. She could have pretty much any guy in town, but she chose you. Why?
Kyle: Because I respect her and value her. She makes me laugh. She makes me want to be the man she deserves.
Mariah: And you're going to do anything to prove to her that she has yours, right?
Kyle: Every day in every way.
[ Both chuckle ]
Kyle: I love lola. I love what we have together. I'm not gonna blow it.
Mariah: Well, I am very glad to hear that. But should you need someone to talk to if you need anything, or if you think you're gonna do something stupid...
Kyle: I've got you on speed-dial.
Mariah: Great. And I will come right over and knock some sense into you, free of charge.
Kyle: Mm. You'd do that for me?
Mariah: Mm-hmm. I would. Because what are friends for? I mean, especially after all the times that you talked me off the ledge with tessa.
Kyle: Haven't got any of those S.O.S. Calls lately.
Mariah: No. We're very good.
Mariah: Yeah. I mean, she's a little stressed out because of not having a job, but I have got my fingers crossed.
Abby: Tessa, hi.
Lola: Hey. It's good to see you.
Tessa: Looks like you guys have half of gc out there.
Abby: [ Chuckles ]
Lola: Crazy, right?
Tessa: Yeah, it's like a cattle call for a fashion show. Ooh, speaking of, is this what the staff will be wearing?
Lola: Some of them, yes.
Tessa: May I?
Abby: Oh, be our guest.
Tessa: Okay. Oh, wow. This clothing is, like, out of a glossy magazine. Yet designed for work. It's familiar and flirty. Yet smart and fresh.
Abby: Exactly what we're looking for in our waiters. Hey, please, sit down.
Tessa: Oh, yeah.
Abby: Let's talk.
Lola: So, how do you see yourself fitting in our team?
Tessa: Well, as you know, I've worked in the service industry before, and from my experience at crimson lights, I'd say I'm a people person. I like to do whatever I can to make someone's day brighter.
Abby: What do you like about being a waitress?
Tessa: The customers. You get new ones walking in the door constantly, so it makes every day different. Special. And if your menu is anything like your pop-up or your truck, I'm guessing it'll change with the seasons?
Lola: Exactly. Tessa was one of my most loyal customers.
Tessa: And I remember back when having a restaurant was just a dream. And I can tell from the vision board and the uniforms and knowing lola the way that I do
[Chuckles] That this isn't just a business concept. It's a labor of love. You guys are putting your hearts and souls into it, and I would be so honored to help make this dream come true.
Lola: Well, that's exactly what we're looking for.
Abby: Just one more question.
Abby: Why did you stop working at crimson lights?
"The young and the restless"
Mariah: All right. I ordered something sweet. That way, if it's good news, we can celebrate, and if it's bad news, we get to eat our feelings.
Tessa: Okay. It's no news, but that's supposed to be good news, right?
Mariah: I don't know. How did it go?
Tessa: Great. I mean... at first. Okay, well, we were all sitting there, and it couldn't have been going better. I mean, they're telling me about the plans for the restaurant, and I'm thinking, "oh, I really want this job." I mean, with lola's food and abby's attention to fashion and detail, I can tell that it would be an amazing place to work.
Mariah: Okay. So far, so good.
Tessa: Until the end.
Mariah: What happened?
Tessa: They asked me why I left my job here.
Mariah: And what did you tell them?
Tessa: Well, I didn't tell them that I got booted for blackmailing the owner.
Mariah: Yeah, no, that would have been bad.
Tessa: Yeah. So I told them that I had gone as far as I could as a barista, and I'm seeking other opportunities.
Mariah: Okay, so, what happens now?
Tessa: They'll probably call sharon for a reference, and then that will be the end.
Mariah: It's not like sharon can come clean, either.
Tessa: Yeah, but she won't have to. I mean, her disdain and dislike will shine through no matter what story she cobbles together. So. Another job bites the dust.
Mariah: Please don't give up yet.
Tessa: I'm not. I'm being real. No matter what I do, my past will come back to haunt me. Karma. And, you know, it's not like I'm asking, heh, for the perfect job. I'm not asking for a million dollars. I'm just asking for something small to make me feel human again.
Mariah: Then that's what you're gonna get.
Tessa: How do you know?
Mariah: Let's just say i believe in happy beginnings. But... there's someplace that i have to be right now.
Tessa: Okay. Where?
Mariah: Would you believe me if I told you I was going to see a fairy godmother? Save some cake for me.
Summer: Oh, wow. Fen looks amazing.
Kyle: [ Sighs ]
Summer: And I thought it was me that you couldn't keep your eyes off at the club the other night. Who knew that we had the same taste in guys? Oh, poor lola. She's always the last to know.
Kyle: [ Snorts softly ] Really? That's the best you got?
Summer: Oh, no. I can -- I can try again. You both know how much I love a challenge.
Kyle: Oh. [ Scoffs ] It's work, okay? Your mother hired fen to model for the new young men's clothing line for fenmore'S.
Summer: Oh. I thought she hired you to model, too. Oh, which means... there's got to be some hot shots of you on here, too.
Kyle: Summer --
Summer: No, no, no. I will be gentle. Aww. Oh. Well, well, well. What do we have here? Man, my mother really is a genius, 'cause fenmore's is gonna sell out of -- I mean, I don't -- whatever it is you're promoting here.
Summer: Oh. Well, too bad it's not an ad for birthday suit.
Kyle: [ Snorts ]
Summer: I'm sorry. That was -- that was out of bounds.
Kyle: [ Sighs ] Don't sweat it.
Summer: Are you sure we're even allowed to be sitting at the same table right now? I mean, her big brother's not gonna dust you for fingerprints later?
Kyle: Very funny.
Summer: I just think it would be easier if you sent me over a list of all of lola's rules. You know, how many feet we're supposed to stand apart, what topics we're not allowed to discuss.
Kyle: There's one rule, and it's mine -- my relationship with lola, what she and I have, it comes first.
Summer: Oh, well, that's sweet. But what about our friendship, kyle? What, are you gonna schedule a lobotomy so you can forget all about me?
Kyle: We'll always be friends, summer.
Summer: Right, no, just the friends who have to keep a respectable distance from each other.
Kyle: [ Scoffs ] Something like that.
Summer: [ Scoffs ] Do you even care about me at all anymore?
Kyle: As much as I care about any of my old friends.
Summer: Okay. So the other night at the club, when you just couldn't keep your eyes off of me, is that the kind of friendship we're gonna have? You can look but you can't touch?
Summer: No, I mean, all I'm saying is, if you were mine, you could have all the friends in the world, kyle.
Kyle: Well, we don't have to worry about that, do we? 'Cause I'm with lola.
Summer: Got it. You know... I really should thank you. If it weren't for you dumping me, then I would have never noticed how much fen has changed.
Kyle: Changed how?
Summer: Well, not just physically, obviously. But he could have stayed in law school, gotten a corporate job, done the daily grind, followed in his father's footsteps. But no. He risked it all and gave up everything for a singing career. It takes guts to blaze your own path. And, I mean, I get it. I dropped everything to hop on a jet and start over in dubai. Where I had lots of adventures, mind you. I went skiing in the desert. I went on a photo safari. And, of course, there was lots of shopping.
Summer: Kind of makes me pity those poor saps who've already settled down that are my age. Day in, day out -- same old grind.
Kyle: [ Sighs ] Like me?
Summer: I'm not pointing any fingers here. I am just saying that there are some people who seem positively middle-aged, tied down, blinders on, afraid to taste all of the adventures that life has to offer.
[ Gasps ] Wow.
Kyle: Fen again?
Summer: You know, I am going to need a poster-sized copy of this for my wall. It takes my breath away.
Lola: Bye. Thank you.
Abby: That went a lot better than I thought it would.
Lola: Yeah, once things got rolling, I think we got a lot of good prospects.
Mariah: Great. You guys are still here.
Abby: Mariah, hi. Looking for a little side hustle?
[ Chuckles ]
Mariah: No. Uh, not yet. But you never know. Actually, I'm here because of tessa.
Lola: Is there a problem?
Mariah: Well, she said that you guys wanted to know why she's no longer at crimson lights, and the truth is, it's because of me.
Abby: How do you mean? Please, have a seat.
Mariah: Well, my mother fired her because she doesn't want us to be together. I guess she thought if she's out of the coffeehouse, she's out of my life. But the truth is, tessa is the best barista that they've had there in ages. She never forgets a face, she never forgets a special order. She is a consummate professional. She's reliable, and... I don't know. I think she would be a great asset to the team you're trying to build.
Lola: That's why she seemed worried when we asked her about it.
Abby: I know from experience how overprotective parents can be.
Lola: And brothers.
[ Abby and mariah chuckle ]
Abby: There's a fine line between mothering and smothering. But we like tessa.
Lola: Yeah, a lot.
Abby: I guess maybe we should scoop her up before somebody else does?
Mariah: Does that mean what I think it means?
Abby: The job is hers if she wants it.
Mariah: Yes! Great! Oh, my gosh.
Abby: But do you want to tell her in person, or...?
Mariah: You took the words right out of my mouth. Thank you! Thank you. Thank you so much. This is just -- thank you. I'm gonna go.
[ All chuckle ] Thank you.
Abby: Bye. Yeah.
Abby: We can move her from "maybe" to "definitely."
Lola: [ Sighs ] Your engagement ring is so beautiful.
Abby: It is, isn't it? I can't get over it. It gives me butterflies every time I look at it.
Lola: Who knew arturo had such good taste in jewelry?
Abby: Right? It's exactly what I wanted. I mean, I didn't even know we were in the place to drop hints about rings that I wanted.
Lola: Wait, that's a thing?
Abby: Of course it's a thing. Yeah, the -- the size of the diamond, the cut, the setting, the -- the metal. Don't worry. When that times comes, just let me know what your dream engagement ring is, and I will make sure that kyle gets the message.
Lola: Oh. No, no. Kyle and I are... nowhere close to that.
Abby: Yet. Well, is it because you haven't been dating that long, or is it something else?
Lola: We're kind of in a holding pattern until the restaurant is up and running.
Abby: How's kyle taking it?
Lola: He says he understands, and he's been very supportive and patient and loving. But we do miss spending time together like we're used to.
Abby: I'm sorry.
Lola: No. It's not like it's forever.
Abby: Okay, but what's gonna happen when the restaurant opens and you're there every night? You don't think that's gonna be a problem for you guys, do you?
Lola: [ Scoffs ] Speaking about problems, did you know that summer's back in town?
Summer: I talked to fen, and he said to please e-mail him those photos.
Kyle: "A" -- they are property of fenmore'S. They are not for distribution. "B" -- fen is not my superior in any way. Ergo, I do not take orders from him.
Summer: Okay, so, just please copy me on those photos. But only the ones of fen. 'Cause if lola found out that i had half-nude photos of you, she would never forgive us.
Kyle: There is no "us." And she has nothing to worry about.
Summer: Fine. Whatever you say.
[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh, let me guess. It's lola checking in on you.
Kyle: It's work.
Kyle: And don't you have a new job at newman? Shouldn't you be there?
Summer: No, because victoria hasn't figured out what to do with me yet.
Kyle: Mm. Join the club. Hey!
Summer: No. You get back to what you were doing. I will tell lola that you're busy.
Kyle: Give me the phone.
Summer: Hey, if she doesn't care about me, then she won't care that we're together.
Kyle: [ Sighs ]
Summer: Wait. What do we have here? Nothing. [ Scoffs ] Literally no texts from lola for days and days.
Kyle: The phone, summer.
Summer: No texts since the night that I ran into you guys at the club. Is there trouble in paradise, kyle? Did you two have a lovers' spat about little ol' me?
Nick: Michael's taking all the equipment to the lab to get tested.
Phyllis: What about your theory that the intruder is J.T.?
Nick: He is skeptical, like you.
Phyllis: I'm beyond skeptical. I was there when he died. I helped bury the body.
Nick: It's not exactly information I could share with michael.
Phyllis: Well, I hope I am proved wrong. You know, I -- [ Sighs ] If we can show that J.T. Is not dead, I mean, that means no one is going to trial for murder.
Nick: That's a big if.
Nick: If he is still alive...
Phyllis: Heaven help us. 'Cause he's gonna be hell-bent on revenge.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Nick: That's michael. Hey, bud. Give me some good news. What do you got?
Mariah: You better quit eating like that, or you're not gonna be able to fit into your new uniform. I'm kidding about -- about the eating part.
Tessa: What new uniform?
Mariah: At lola's restaurant.
Tessa: Shut. Up. Are you serious?
Mariah: You got the job.
Tessa: I got the job?
Mariah: You got the job. I begged abby and lola to let me deliver the news.
Tessa: Oh, my god. Oh, my god! Happy dance! Oh, my god! Yes!
Mariah: Oh, my gosh. It's been a long time since I've seen the happy dance.
Tessa: I'd forgotten what this feels like. Me, having a job. Best day ever. Thank you.
Mariah: You did this all on your own.
Tessa: And the best part, the most incredible part, is that I get to share this with you.
Lola: I already know what you're going to say.
Abby: Oh, do tell.
Lola: You're going to tell me not to worry about summer.
Abby: Not even close. You should absolutely worry about summer.
Lola: [ Sighs ]
Abby: When she sees something that she wants, she is relentless.
Lola: I mean, she's been back, like, what, a week maybe, and she is in every single conversation. If we're not talking to summer, we're talking about her. She's, like, lurking in the back of our minds, the bitterness on the tip of our tongues.
Abby: Do you remember, after the jaboutiques launch, when you came over to try to convince me to give arturo another chance? You compared mia to summer.
Lola: Did I?
Abby: Some people, they're like fire. They consume everything in their path. They don't care what they damage. They want what they want, and they just destroy the rest.
Lola: Well, what are we supposed to do?
Abby: I see that we have two options. We either sit back and let them take control --
Lola: No. That's not an option.
Abby: Then I say it's time to put out the fire.
Kyle: Not everyone has as much free time as you do. Lola's been busy all day.
Summer: Oh. Poor little cinderella. Washing dishes, sweating over the hot stove, giving 100% to the 1%.
Kyle: Mm. She's interviewing waitstaff for her new restaurant. That's why she's been out of touch.
Summer: Yeah? Yesterday too?
Kyle: We were together at my place yesterday. Not that it's any of your business.
Summer: It's not.
Kyle: Just like whatever you're up to with fen isn't any of ours. So feel free to do what you like and keep it to yourself. It has zero impact on me and lola.
Summer: Kyle, I know you better than anyone else. And I can tell that something has got you wound up.
Kyle: Well, it sure isn't you.
Summer: No, but you're dying to tell me what it is, because deep down, you know that I am the only one who will understand.
Kyle: [ Sighs ] Wishful thinking.
Summer: All right. I can wait. And, uh, when you're ready to share... you know where to find me.
Phyllis: What did michael say about the evidence? Did they finish testing it?
Nick: His guy at the lab couldn't pull any dna or fingerprints.
Phyllis: So now what?
Nick: He's gonna send a tech out to the ranch to see what they can find there, but if they couldn't get any dna off of the equipment, they're not gonna find anything at the crime scene. Whoever's doing this is being very cautious.
Phyllis: Maybe they wanted or expected us to find their hiding place. They could have lured katie behind the walls on purpose.
Nick: You mean just to rub it in that they've been watching us this whole time?
Phyllis: So? I mean, that's just like the fire poker and the clothes that were left on nikki's bed. They're taunting us.
Nick: How do we prove this person even exists? Without dna or fingerprints, the police are just gonna think we came up with this crazy cover story.
Phyllis: Yeah. Back to square one.
Nick: Do you think this is somebody who's close to us? Somebody who knows the intimate details of our lives?
Phyllis: I don't like what you're saying. Who do you think it could be?
Nick: I don't know. But I'm gonna find out. And when I do, he's going down.
