Previously on "the young and the restless"...
Tessa: That was the last night that anyone saw J.T. Alive. He's dead, and your mom and the others are taking him to chancellor park to bury him.
Phyllis: I will give you every detail of J.T.'S murder if you agree to help me out in return.
Kyle: Oh, my god! Can you hear me? Can you hear me? Come here. Hey. Hey. Talk to me. Hey! Lola?
Abby: This isn't about the police believe she attacked. I have to know if my sister's okay.
Kyle: She's as good as she can be right now. She's still unconscious.
Rey: Does she --
Kyle: She has brain function, but there might be a problem with her liver. That's all they've told me so far.
Rey: So what are we supposed to do, just -- just sit here?
Kyle: It's all we can do! Wait and hope...
Nick: I know she's back there. I saw them arrest her. Phyllis summers. I just need five minutes.
She's not allowed visitors.
Nick: [ Sighs ]
Nick: Hey, they're holding phyllis and they won't let me see her. Do you know what's going on?
Michael: Would you excuse us for a minute?
Michael: I know that they've interrogated nikki again. They've also hauled in victoria to question her, as well.
Nick: They arrested victoria, too?
Michael: Along with sharon.
Nick: What new information do they have that would justify arresting them?
Michael: For some reason, they think that victoria was there when J.T. Was killed. They have a lot what they want is a winngtori
Michael: Yes, but I don't represent her.
Nick: What about phyllis?
Michael: As far as I can tell, she doesn't have a lawyer.
Nick: All right. Look, let's go back to my place. We'll try to come up with a way to help them before things spin out of control.
Michael: Okay.Prosecutors like me cut deals th criminals like yo I highly doubt you have anything I need.
Phyllis: You have no idea what I got.
Christine: [ Scoffs ] Well, it would have to be pretty spectacular to keep you out of jail.
Phyllis: I have fireworks on the fourth of july spectacular, and you're gonna want it bad. That's why it's gonna cost you plenty.
Christine: Phyllis, you're in no position to bully me, and I'm in no mood for games. I have three other prisoners i can make deals with.
Phyllis: All you're gonna get from them are stories. Told to you by women who are, quite frankly, unreliable.
Christine: And you're different how?
Phyllis: Because what I'm preparing to give you is evidence. The thing your case is missing. Why it stalled. I can solve this for you very easily. You can go from having a fragile case to a slam-dunk. It's gonna feel good walking in there, confident, self-assured. Not afraid your case is gonna fall apart and you'll be humiliated. I've known you a long time, cricket. Being publicly embarrassed and feeling silly and stupid is your worst nightmare. So, what do you say?
Tessa: Okay, give me the update.
Mariah: Well, there's nothing to report. They won't let me see my mom, so I talked to her lawyer brittany for a few minutes. No official charges have been filed. Same goes for nikki, victoria, and phyllis.
Tessa: Yeah, but they're holding them which means somebody cracked.
[ Sighs ] Everything's gonna come out now.
Mariah: We don't know any of that, okay? I'm so worried about my mom, thinking about her in that jail cell.
Tessa: Oh, I know, it's awful. I know that you don't want to think about this right now, but it's not just the four of them that are in jeopardy. You were there that night, and you and I know a lot about what happened, and we kept quiet, which means that we're part of the cover-up.
Mariah: My mom would never bring us into this.
Tessa: Yeah, but the others might. To corroborate their stories. Or to spread guilt around. Or maybe... just to bring me down for blackmailing them.
Mariah: I really don't think that they would do that.
Tessa: Depends on how much pressure they're under. I wish I would have never seen that tape. It's made our lives a nightmare, and now we might be the next ones in handcuffs.
Abby: No, her -- her room is over there.
Mia: Oh, my god! She's not here! Where is she? Is she gone?
Rey: She's upstairs. They took her for tests.
Mia: [ Sobbing ] Rey, please tell me she's gonna be okay. Please tell me!
Mia: Abby came, told me. I don't understand, this doesn't make sense.
[ Crying ]
Rey: I know. I know. I just -- I just found out myself.
Mia: I was looking everywhere for you earlier.
Rey: I was working on a case.
Mia: Okay, what -- what tests are they running on her? Is lola awake? What did the doctor say?
Rey: She's unconscious. The doctors think she... hit her before she fell in the pool.
Mia: Who found her?
Rey: Kyle, but he doesn't know how long she was in the water. All we can do now is wait.
Mia: Rey, I'm so sorry.
Rey: Let's not --
Mia: Your little sister... this isn't what -- it doesn't even seem real!
Rey: Yeah, I'm know, I'm just catching up myself.
[ Clears throat ] Arturo said that kyle spoke to the detective on the case.
Mia: Wait, what case?
Rey: The case police opened up. They don't think what happened to lola was an accident.
Mia: You and me, we need to be together now.
Rey: No, I -- let's not do this right now. We'll talk about it at a later time. We'll figure it out. Right now, our focus needs to be on lola pulling through this.
[ Sighs ] What if -- what if she doesn't wake up? What if they can't help her?
Mia: Rey, you have to listen to me. You have to know --
Arturo: Oh, there you are.
Rey: What were you gonna say?
Mia: Just that... I'm gonna be with you, be here for you and lola until she opens her eyes. No matter how long it takes.
Nick: Phyllis didn't say much when she called, just that she was fine and not to worry. Now, I don't know how that's possible that she's fine, and I couldn't be more -- worried.
Michael: I wish I had more answers for you, but I feel like my hand are tied. I feel like I'm working with incomplete information.
Nick: Why's that?
Michael: I don't think nikki or victoria are telling me the complete truth. They're sticking to their original stories, it's just -- it feels...bad.
Nick: Why would they change their stories?
Michael: And I have no idea what sharon's testimony is because she hired her own lawyer, and phyllis...?
Nick: I have no idea why she used her one phone call to call me. She should have called you or some other lawyer.
Michael: Me, either.
Nick: There's got to be a reason. This is phyllis we're talking about, so she has to have a plan, right?
Christine: You say you have evidence about what happened to J.T.? Great. Write it down. I will consider it carefully when weighing a possible plea deal.
Phyllis: It's a nice try. I appreciate it. I know you're gonna give me a deal, but what I want is full immunity. Then I will get specific.
Christine: Okay, you do realize if there is one person out of the four of you that i would love to send to prison...
Phyllis: It's me. That's noted, but that ain't happening any time soon.
Christine: [ Scoffs ] You seem so confident.
Phyllis: Because what I'm giving you is gold. But the immunity deal comes first.
Christine: [ Scoffs ] All right. I'll write up a deal for you to sign. But know this -- if you make one misrepresentation or exaggeration, if something doesn't check out, that deal goes in the shredder, and you go straight to jail.
Arturo: I found the nurse. I told her that we wanted to talk to the doctor. He's still with lola. He'll get back to us when he can.
Rey: I just want somebody to come in here and tell us she's gonna be all right.
Arturo: Waiting is tough, but it's a lot better now that you're here.
Rey: You, too. Thank you for being here, despite everything.
Mia: I wouldn't be anywhere else.
Arturo: I'm gonna give you guys some time.
Rey: No. It's fine. Stay. Stay. We need to be united as a family for lola, okay? She's the only thing that matters right now.
Abby: Lola is tough. She's resilient, she's gonna pull through this.
Kyle: It's my fault she got hurt in the first place. If she hadn't come looking for me tonight...
Abby: You cannot think like that.
Kyle: I can't help it.
[ Sighs ] The way we left things, she was so... upset and angry and of course she was. I would have been, too, if I saw what she saw.
Summer: Kyle. Kyle! Hey, is lola okay?
Kyle: What are you doing here?
Summer: Well, I saw the police tape at your house, so i asked ms. Martinez, and she filled me in on everything, and I can't --
Summer: What do you mean?
Kyle: Why do you think it's just your place to show up here?
Summer: Because something awful happened, and I was worried about you.
Kyle: You were worried about lola? You're not friends with her. You don't even like her.
Summer: Okay, well, I'm friends with you, and I wanted to make sure that you were okay.
Kyle: I am not your friend. And I don't want you here because the only thing I care about is lola, and you are nothing but a distraction.
Summer: Okay, why are you talking to me like this? I just wanted to help.
Kyle: [ Scoffs ] If you want to help, there's only one thing you can do. Leave.
Christine: [ Scoffs ] God, take your time.
Phyllis: This is my life. I've got to be thorough. Looks like it's all there.
Christine: Don't make me regret this.
Phyllis: I'm sure you have a lot of regrets in life, but this isn't gonna be one of them.
Christine: Okay. Start at the beginning, don't leave anything out.
Phyllis: Oh, I'm not. I'm gonna give you an accurate and distinctive report of what happened that night. It should line up with what the other person told you. The snitch.
Christine: You mean the person that snitched other than you?
Phyllis: I want to make one thing clear before we get started here. J.T. Was a threat. He was dangerous, he was out of control. Nikki, sharon, victoria, and I, we did what we had to do. It was supposed to be girls' night. Margaritas and gossip and... you know, it started out that way. Mariah had one too many. She passed out. We've all been there. Then the night took a turn when victoria started confessing what was going on with J.T. For months, he was abusing her. Both emotionally and physically. Retelling what had happened was draining to victoria, so she had to go upstairs and lay down. Turns out that J.T. Was up there, too. He had broken in, and that's when he went after her.
Christine: How do you know that?
Phyllis: Because I could hear it. Door slamming and things crashing and her screaming "get away from me! Get away!" The words will be burned in my brain forever. So we, um, ran upstairs, and when we got there, J.T. Had pinned against the dresser. He was clutching her arm so tight, I thought he was gonna squeeze the life out of her. He was just shaking her violently. There was no doubt that she was in imminent danger. She tried to struggle free, but she couldn't, he was stronger. So nikki did what any mother would do, and she grabbed the fireplace poker and she swung it to stop him from attacking her daughter, not to kill him.
Christine: But she did kill him.
Phyllis: We didn't realize that at first. Nikki must have hit J.T. On the head at angle that, yes, brought him to his death, but we panicked. Of course we did, there was a dead man laying on the bedroom floor on girls' night. We had to deal with it. So we did the only thing that made sense at the time.
Christine: You called the police?
Phyllis: You're making my point. What if the police didn't believe us? Even though we were telling the truth, nikki was going to jail. We all were. And why? Because a violent abuser met his end in a less-than-ideal way?
Christine: That's the euphemism of the year.
Phyllis: J.T. Was at fault for what happened to him, not us. He broke in, he attacked victoria. All we did was react. It might have been impulsive, but I will go to my grave believing that our actions were justified.
Christine: Just stick to the facts. What happened next?
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] We rolled up the body in a rug, and we drove to chancellor park and we buried it there. Once that was done, there was no turning back, and we knew if we tried to explain it we would get the reaction I'm getting from you right now. We looked guilty, and we knew that we would not get a fair shake, so... the four of us made a pact with one another. We promised to stay quiet, we promised to protect one another. And it wasn't easy. In fact, the moments, the days, the months, had been nothing but hell.
Christine: Well, that's quite a story. You promised me evidence.
Phyllis: Okay. Here it is. The fireplace poker -- it exists. The clothes that J.T. Wore that night, I know where they are. And I can prove that we dragged that body from victoria's house in a rug because there's a tape.
Summer: Okay, why are you so mad at me?
Kyle: Oh, cut the crap! You know exactly why! Lola came to the cabin wanting to make things right between us, and who does she find there? You. Again. You always insert yourself into our business, coming between us at the worst times. She and I would be up at the cabin celebrating right now if it wasn't for you. Instead, I am in a hospital waiting room while lola fights for her life.
Summer: [ Scoffs ] Okay, so are you trying to tell me that what happened to lola is my fault?
Kyle: It might as well be. I can't even stand to look at you right now.
Summer: Okay, no, kyle, I am not your enemy! I am here because I care about you.
Kyle: The only person you care about is yourself! For all I know, you're the one who attacked lola.
Kyle: Your selfish, narcissistic brain can't stand to see me happy without you. You're determined to ruin my relationships and my life. So can I picture you following lola back to town to confront her because you just have to tell her what you've already told me countless times? That you and I "are meant to be together, and she can't make me happy like you can." Yeah. I can picture it. Maybe you two got into it, and you gave her a little shove.
Summer: Okay, no, kyle, now you are just crossing the line here.
Kyle: Is it? I don't know where the line is for you.
Summer: You know, I came here out of concern for because I am a good person. And now you're sitting here accusing of assaulting your ex-girlfriend? No, only one of us is acting crazy here, and it's you.
Arturo: Good job.
Arturo: Getting rid of people that don't belong here. You're next.
Kyle: [ Scoffs ] I'm not leaving.
Arturo: You can go on your own volition, or you can go with some help from me. Your choice.
Phyllis: I was tasked with the job to get rid of the poker. Which I did by tucking it away in my storage locker.
Christine: To save your butt. So much for your unity pact with the girls.
Phyllis: I figured it was safer under my care. Until it was stolen and ended up at the newman ranch.
Christine: Who stole it?
Phyllis: I don't know. But if you do a search at the ranch, you will find it, along with the clothes that J.T. Was wearing that night.
Christine: And what about the tape?
Phyllis: J.T. Set up hidden cameras in victoria's house to spy on her because that is the brand of psycho he is. Ironically, he captured us dragging his body to the car. Later... that footage found its way to the dark horse server. Since then, it's been erased, but I bet you forensic experts can find a way to un-erase it pretty easily.
Christine: Yeah, this is good. What about the body?
Phyllis: Has anyone ever told you you're very difficult to please?
Christine: If the body was buried in the park like you said, where is it?
Phyllis: None of us know what happened to it after that night.
Christine: So you're saying someone stole the body out of the park, stole the fire poker out of your storage unit, and grabbed J.T.'S clothes and planted them at the ranch?
Phyllis: Yes. I can't solve the entire case for you, but I got you 75% there. You might have to do a little work on your own.
Christine: And are the other women gonna corroborate what you've said?
Phyllis: If they're telling the truth...
Christine: Okay, so you don't know? I mean, this is a crapshoot?
Phyllis: There's one other person that you can talk to. There were five of us there that night, not four.
Christine: Mariah. You said she was passed out.
Phyllis: She may know something about the information I just gave you.
Christine: [ Sighs ] The clothes, the poker, and the tape.
Phyllis: It could be worth asking her.
Christine: Okay. Now it is time for me to verify if what you're telling me is the truth.
Phyllis: You don't believe me? Why in the hell would I lie to you?
Christine: [ Scoffs ] Because it comes naturally to you. You forget, I've known you a long time, too. Please take her back to her cell, make sure she doesn't talk to any of the other women.
Phyllis: A pleasure, as always, christine.
Christine: Yes, I need to speak with judge quinn about a search warrant.
Tessa: [ Sighs ] You're worried about sharon, and I'm worried about you.
Mariah: I'm worried about you, too.
Tessa: But there's nothing we can do right now. Except wait. Brittany said she would call if there are any updates?
Tessa: Maybe we should get out of here.
Mariah: Go where?
Tessa: Go see kyle in the hospital? See if there's any news about lola?
Mariah: [ Sighs ] I'm sure he would have called if there were any new developments, but, yeah. Yeah, you're right. We should go see if he needs our support.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Christine: Mariah. It's christine williams.
Mariah: Um, hi. Hi, is this about my mom? Is there any news?
Christine: She's still in holding. We're gonna have a few more questions for her.
Christine: Actually, i have some additional questions for you.
Christine: Yes, your name came up in the interviews again, and I just want you to clarify a few things.
Christine: Should I send someone to get you, or can i trust that you'll make it to the station tonight?
Mariah: Um, yeah. You can -- you can trust me. I'll be there. Oh, my god, this is it.
Andrew wanted nothing to do with his volcano demonstration.
"The young and the restless"
Arturo: Come on, let's go.
Abby: Stop! Stop!
Kyle: I'm not surewho you think are trying to kick me out of here.
Arturo: I'm lola's brother, buddy, who are you?
Kyle: I'm her boyfriend.
Arturo: Wrong. Try again.
Kyle: She was coming to see me to get back together.
Abby: Guys, enough.
Arturo: Look, we only have your word for that. Even if lola was on her way to make up with you, she had no idea what she was doing. You had her way too spun out with your begging and your pleading. Lola was way too emotional to know she was making a huge mistake.
Kyle: Lola and I are not a mistake.
Kyle: You want to know who i am to her? I'm the guy who loves her.
Arturo: [ Scoffs ] You have a really funny way of showing that, considering the only thing we do know is that lola walked in on you tonight, on the verge of having sex with someone else.
Kyle: It was a kiss! I knew it was wrong, and i stopped it.
Arturo: Well, here's the thing, kyle. When you love someone, you don't put yourself in that situation, all right? That kind of stuff doesn't even cross your mind. When you love someone, that means devotion and respect.
Kyle: Oh, really? The whole town knows your backstory, man.
Abby: Kyle, what are you doing?
Arturo: Yeah, well, the only thing that matters to me is my sister, and all I know is that you broke her heart. And I want what's best for her, and that's you not hovering over her.
Rey: Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey! Whoa, whoa, whoa! Stop! The last thing we need is any more chaos.
Kyle: It's not my intention.
Rey: Then let her family take care of her. Please.
Rey: Thank you.
Kyle: I only want what's best for lola.
Rey: We all do.
Abby: Kyle, I'll call you with any updates, okay?
Abby: [ Sighs ]
Summer: Dad? I really need to talk to you.
Michael: Glad you're home, summer. Oh, my car's here. All right, hang in there. It's been an upsetting day for all of us. I'll be in touch.
Nick: Thanks for coming by.
Michael: All right.
Summer: Hey, um, how does he know about me and kyle?
Nick: You and kyle? I don't even know about you and kyle. What's going on there?
Summer: Well, lola broke up with him, and I was trying to be a good friend and go and talk to him, and who shows up? Yep. Totally takes her side, turns on me like I'm the enemy, and I was just trying to support him, and now he blames me for lola getting hurt.
Nick: Wait, lola got hurt?
Summer: Yeah, she's in the hospital. I thought that's what you guys were talking about.
Nick: No. No, we were talking about something else.
Nick: I have bad news, summer.
Nick: No, it's really bad.
Summer: Okay, you're scaring me, what is it?
Nick: Your mom's been arrested.
Christine: Thanks for coming in.
Mariah: Didn't sound like i had a choice. Am I under arrest?
Christine: No, this is just background. I'm hoping you can corroborate a few of the statements the other witnesses made. Have a seat.
Mariah: Uh, what other statements? My mom's?
Christine: I'm not at liberty to say.
Mariah: Can I see her now? Is she okay?
Christine: Yeah, she's fine. Right now, I just want you to tell me everything you remember about that night, specifically focusing on after J.T. Arrived at the house.
Mariah: Yeah, I know -- I said this before. I got drunk and I passed out. I don't remember anything.
Christine: Okay. Well, perhaps you've learned something after the fact through a conversation or a recording of some kind. Like a video?
Summer: Okay, have the police lost their minds? I thought that they were convinced that grandpa killed J.T.
Nick: They were, but something changed.
Summer: Okay, so let me get this straight -- they've arrested mom, grandma, sharon, and aunt victoria, as if they were somehow all in on this together? I mean, that's insane! Come on, what are you waiting for? We got to go, we got to go talk to them.
Nick: No, summer, I already tried. All right? But they're not letting her have any visitors until they sort things out. That's why I was here talking to michael.
Summer: Okay, good, he's representing her, he's on top of it. What's the plan?
Nick: He's representing your aunt victoria and your grandma. Your mom has not hired a lawyer yet, and I have no idea why. Because they won't let me in to see her and talk to her.
Summer: Look, it's okay. Okay, you're holding everyone and everything together at this point, even though you must be totally freaked out. I'm sorry. I can't even wrap my head around them all being arrested. I can't even imagine what a shock this is for you.
Nick: There's been a lot of surprises today.
Nick: Let's hope there aren't any more.
Summer: [ Sighs ]
Mariah: I want to see my mom now.
Christine: Let's finish our conversation first.
Mariah: You know what, keeping everybody separated and isolated like this, it's just -- it's pretty unfair.
Christine: Tonight's not about being fair, it's about getting to the truth. So why don't you sit back down? I noticed you had a reaction when I mentioned a video.
Mariah: Did I?
Christine: Mariah, my job is to talk to people who don't want to talk to me. I can do this all night. I am trying to find out who's responsible for J.T.'S death, and I know it may seem that telling me what you know may hurt the person you love, but it could actually help them. Your silence might hurt them more than you talking.
Mariah: Fine. I heard there is a video of the women putting a body into a car.
Christine: Okay, good.
Mariah: But I don't know where it is or how you can get a copy of it.
Christine: Let me worry about that.
Mariah: Is this gonna help my mom?
Christine: I don't know. It might.
Mariah: There's something else that you need to know. Whatever happened that night, my mom was not a willing participant. She just got caught up in a situation that she had no control over.&
Christine: How do you know that? You were passed out.
Mariah: Because I know my mom. And I know victoria.
Christine: Go on.
Mariah: I know what victoria is capable of. And I bet she pressured my mom into doing whatever they did, maybe even threatened her. That's the only explanation i have for my mom's involvement in this.
Christine: Well, we're just getting off-track. You're giving me opinion, okay? I need facts. Facts, I can take to the courtroom.
Abby: Mia? Are you okay?
Mia: No, I'm worried sick.
Abby: We all are. Why don't you, um, come back to the waiting room? We're all in there.
Mia: It's probably best to stay here. I don't want to make things more intense than they already are.
Abby: How about we try to put our issues aside for the time being? Keep our focus on lola.
Mia: You think that's possible?
Abby: [ Sighs ] I will try if you will. Um, come on.
Mariah: She knows about the tape.
Tessa: You told her?
Mariah: I think she already knew, but I confirmed it, yes. But I did say that I had no idea how she could get ahold of it.
Tessa: She'll get it off the servers at dark horse.
Mariah: That doesn't mean that it'll come back to you.
Tessa: [ Sighs ] Do you think anything you said will help sharon?
Mariah: I have no idea, but you were right before. This thing, this terrible, awful thing, it is gonna swallow us whole.
Tessa: [ Sighs ]
Rey: The second you find out anything, you call me. Thank you.
Mia: Was that, uh, one of lola's doctors?
Rey: No. No. Nate's still with her. But all this waiting was driving me crazy, so I decided to call the detective that's on her case, eddie.
Mia: What did he say?
Rey: They're still going over everything that they found on the scene. I'm gonna find out who did this to lola, don't you worry.
Mia: But, um, you're not assigned to the case.
Rey: No, they won't put me on the case because of my personal involvement, but we're talking about my sister here. I'm gonna make sure whoever did this to her pays.
Christine: Your story checks out. We searched the newman ranch.
Phyllis: Victor must have loved that.
Christine: Oh, you have no idea.
Phyllis: I knew there was an upside of confessing.
Christine: We found the clothes and the fireplace poker, and, uh, pretty good move about referring us to the fifth witness. She was able to confirm your claim about the video footage. Now, all wheels are in motion to access the dark horse server.
Phyllis: Mm. You kicking yourself for doubting me?
Christine: Hardly because 99% of the time, doubting you is the way to go.
Phyllis: What about my deal? I know I took my time reading through the deal earlier, but I think you're milking it.
Christine: Am I?
Phyllis: Are you enjoying it?
Christine: I am.
Phyllis: This is beneath you.
Christine: You're free to go. Phyllis, not everyone is gonna be as happy about our agreement as I am.
Phyllis: The women will understand that I had no choice.
Christine: No, you always have a choice. You chose to roll over on your friends and save yourself. But, hey, I'll see you in court because you're my star witness.
