Previously on "the young and the restless"...
Victoria: I told you I want to take things slow.
Billy: I want to be a family.
Victoria: I'm not saying no.
Rey: All I can think about is the baby. Which is why we are gonna take a paternity test.
Nick: Well, since sage and adam are gone, I'm the only living parent that -- that christian has.
Brittany: And both sage and adam were aware of christian's paternity.
Nick: Yes, and they both chose to allow me to raise christian as my own.
Adam: So this is newman enterprises. Pretty impressive.
Victor: Any of this seem familiar to you?
Adam: I don't ever remember being here.
[ Cellphone chiming ]
[ Knocks on door ]
Victor: Adam, this is your father. May I come in? Well, I knew you'd be up!
Adam: Why are you here? Is something wrong?
Victor: Oh, no, no. On the contrary.
Victoria: Oh! I'm sorry. I never even gave you my order.
Billy: I had to wing it. You tell me if it's okay.
Victoria: Mmm! Wow. All of this, and you can even read minds -- amazing.
Billy: One mind, and only 17% of the time.
Victoria: Well, my mind is a bit jumbled at the moment.
Victoria: Seeing him again, alive... you know, it's just a lot to process. I imagine you feel the same way.
Billy: I'm worried about you. But, yes, knowing that he's back in town and having to see his face is a lot, especially without a warning.
Victoria: My life can't come to a standstill because of that.
Victoria: Which, it occurs to me that we have some unfinished business.
Billy: We do?
Victoria: Yes, we do. You proposed to me. Do you remember? And, um, I was thinking that we should talk about that.
Sharon: Is that...?
Rey: Test results. Mia's baby. Telling us who the father is.
Sharon: What does it say?
Rey: I haven't opened it yet. Thought we should do that together.
Adam: So, what's this about?
Victor: Let's give this a moment. First of all, how do you feel? I mean, yesterday was a very stressful day, wasn't it?
Adam: Meeting victoria and that billy guy -- talking about walking into a buzzsaw.
Adam: Maybe if someone had clued me in that I was the one that was driving the car that struck his daughter.
Victor: So you didn't remember?
Adam: [ Sighs ] God no. Which doesn't make it any easier to deal with.
[ Sighs ] And instead of coming forward when I realized what I had done, that I was responsible for a child's death, I covered it up. I mean, what kind of person does that?
Victor: Don't beat yourself up about that. I mean, someone who fears that people don't see it his way, you know? Or someone who might think he's gonna go to prison because of people's preconceived notions.
Adam: Okay, well, thanks for taking me off the hook. Not that it helps. I mean, this whole trip, not what I expected. I was stupid to thank that random meetings with people i supposedly knew here would trigger my memory.
Victor: Well, wait a minute. Not just a random meeting. I mean, these are not just people, this is your family.
Adam: From where I sit, they're all strangers -- not that they see me that way. Everybody seems to have very intense feelings as far as I'm concerned, and that's putting it nicely.
Victor: I just have the feeling that once the memory comes back, the pressure will ease.
Adam: You guarantee that, do you? Must be nice to have that much power.
Victor: Adam, this is going to be a long process. You have to be patient.
Adam: Still haven't said why you came by.
Victor: I have something that might spark your memory.
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Sharon: Whether you're the father or arturo is, it's going to be life-changing. Either way, we are going to be fine. We're going to make things work. I promise you.
Rey: [ Sighs deeply ]
Mia: [ Clears throat ] It's all I wanted.
Rey: It's arturo
Sharon: [ Sighs ] Are you okay?
Rey: [ Laughs ] This -- yeah, this really is the most ideal outcome, especially when it comes to you and me. It's much cleaner than the alternative.
Sharon: Well, that's one side of it, but... I look at you, and there's so much going on inside. I know that there was a part of you that was hoping that you'd finally become a father.
Sharon: It's something that you've always wanted, a child of your own.
Rey: I'm not -- I'm not thinking about that now. This is, uh... this is better for the baby, and that's the most important thing. Right?
Rey: Yeah. And -- and if it were mia and me, our history would just.. make things difficult. So much... regret and hurt, betrayal on both sides. I mean... this is -- this is for the best, all around.
Sharon: All that may be true, and, you know, you'd still be entitled to feel let down, and you can admit that, it's okay. And not just to me. To yourself.
Mia: Rey must be relieved. There goes the last thread that could ever connect us.
Arturo: Are you sure this is the result you wanted?
Mia: We were together first. We were young, immature. It didn't last. We didn't know what we wanted out of life. We came back together not once, but twice. Because things between us weren't finished. It's always been hard for us, but this... having a child, creating a new life together... there's a reason things worked out this way. I believe that with all my heart, arturo. This is how things were meant to be.
Billy: All of that mind-reading skill, just straight out the window, splat, on the floor.
Victoria: Look, if you would like to table this for a different time, that's fine with me.
Billy: No, no, I would love to talk about it, especially if your answer is yes.
Victoria: My answer is very complicated, and yet, it's as simple as it gets.
Billy: If you're trying to torment me with riddle, it's working.
[ Sighs ] I would never do that to you because I love you, billy abbott, with all of my heart and soul.
Billy: Back at you, beautiful girl
Victoria: Which... is why I think we shouldn't get married.
Billy: Okay, so you're saying... you're saying no after that lead-up? That's not cool.
Victoria: I told you, my answer is complicated and simple. I am saying no. But I am also saying yes.
Billy: So you want to be together, but you don't want to be married.
Victoria: I want to be together, but I don't want to put a label on it. Because labels come with all these rules and expectations, and I don't want that. I just want you.
Nick: So, adam's outside?
Victor: Yeah, waiting in the car. I just wanted you and I to have a private moment before.
Nick: You can't just show up out of the blue like this, dad. It's one of the reasons why i left the ranch.
Victor: Son, I didn't show up just out of the blue. I had called you, texted you, had gotten no response. I had intended to set up this meeting.
Nick: Well, I've been busy. I got a lot on my plate. I was gonna call you back.
Victor: I don't think you want this, do you? You're keeping at arm's length, hoping that this whole thing would go away. It won't, and it shouldn'T.
Nick: You have no right to force the issue.
Adam: Force what issue? Whatever it is you have arranged here today, please tell me.
Victor: You're gonna meet your son.
Nick: [ Sighs ]
Victoria: We both agreed that we would ease into this nice and slowly, and it worked, I'm happy. You're happy. I don't want anybody else, you're it for me.
Billy: We agree on that.
Victoria: You don't seem very convinced, billy.
Billy: I'm not trying to pressure you, babe, I'm really not. I'm just trying to understand why you're stopping short of making it official.
Victoria: I -- I just don't see what it gets us.
Billy: Really? You don't?
Victoria: Look, marriage is no guarantee. You know, look at cane and lily, look at nick and sharon. They never even made it to say their vows, and, heck, I mean, look at us, look at our history.
Billy: Yeah, okay, but... what about the kids? Johnny and katie. I think they would love the idea of us getting hitched again.
Victoria: I think our kids would be thrilled if mommy and daddy were in love again, under the same roof without much discussion about it, and the four of us living together as a big, happy family. It would bring happiness and security. That's all that matters. Everything else is just window dressing.
Billy: Yeah. But there's something about standing up in front of the people that we love, people that support us, in front of the community and saying that we are strong family unit.
Victoria: I had no idea that I would get this much of a fight out of you. It's a non-commitment commitment, every red-blooded man's dream.
Billy: Okay, that's one way of looking at it.
Billy: There's something to be said for the ceremony... for the "I do," the signing of the document, and, more importantly, this is really trippy. You, of all people, bucking tradition? You are the most traditional person that I know. Which makes me think that you're working a little bit too hard.
Victoria: Working too hard for what?
Billy: Okay, what do you want to bet that we try this out, and then in the not-too-distant future you start dropping little hints about wanting to tie the knot again?
Victoria: You see? That's why this is working. You know me so well.
Billy: So you think it's reasonable to expect that maybe someday, one day, you might actually want, you know, the big fabulous wedding?
Victoria: I don't know. You never know. And I'm not opposed to maybe some sort of a placeholder event to announce to the entire world that you and I are together again.
Billy: I know you, you just want a party, don't you?
Victoria: You do know me well, don't you?
Adam: Christian? He's here now?
Victor: He lives with nicholas. He was raising him as his son.&
Adam: [ Scoffs ] When you insisted that I take a ride with you, I didn't realize that, uh, this is what you were being so mysterious about.
Victor: Adam. You're dealing with a hell of a lot, okay? I don't even know how you do it. But when you and I drove around, you weren't familiar with anything. You have no connection to anyone or anything.
Adam: What is your point?
Victor: This is about meeting your son, and, as a parent, one has an instinctive, innate bond with one's children.
Nick: Oh, he says that so naturally when this is destructive as hell.
Adam: Wait a minute, you think that I'm a threat?
Nick: How else should I feel?
Victor: Nicholas, you know this is something that should happen.
Nick: Well, if you had thought about anyone other than yourself, then...
Victor: Finish it.
Nick: You know, this is a monumental thing, and not just for adam, but for christian and myself, and for you to barge in here and assert your will is wrong, and you know it.
Adam: Nick's right. You went too far, victor. Again. I want no part of this. Dental insurance. Many employers don't offer it. Medicare doesn't include it.

Mia: You know what, I've been thinking a lot about what this news means for me, but I want to know how you're feeling, what you're thinking, any... concerns you might have.
Arturo: I'll admit that a part of me was hoping it was rey, you know, that he'd be the father. But only because he's always been the adult in the family.
[ Scoffs ] That sounds bad, but... I don't know, rey -- rey just -- he's better at these things. You know? Like at having...
Arturo: Yeah. I used to hate the way that he would boss me around when we were kids. But, deep down, you know, i really didn't mind him taking charge. It allowed me to skate. You know, rey was my out to stay loose, live my life like i wanted.
Mia: With as few rules as possible.
Arturo: [ Chuckles ] You got it. It's so messed up, though. I made mistakes. A lot of mistakes. But that's gonna change today. It is time for me to stand up and be a man. And taking care of that baby, taking care of you, that is my job now. And I want that job. I want to go back to miami where we both have family, and I want to do this right.
Mia: You're gonna be a great father.
Arturo: Mm, not at first. I'm sure that I will screw up plenty. And I haven't had a lot of practice with this whole "adulting" thing, but I promise you that I am going to do everything in my power to get there.
Mia: I'll help you figure it out. If you'll do the same for me.
Arturo: I guess it's time to, uh, start thinking about names.
[ Chuckles ]
Rey: I meant what I said before. I'm not having second thoughts. This -- this is the right thing. For all of us. I mean, yeah, I get it, there's -- there's a part of me that hurts, but I also can't stop wondering about mia and arturo, how they're handling this.
Sharon: Well, I can guarantee their life will never be the same.
Rey: Yeah. That is for sure. We had a big talk yesterday. We said a bunch of things that have gone on way too long without being said.
Sharon: Good things or bad things?
Rey: Honest things. It's good that they're considering going back to miami. There's a lot of folks on both sides that can pitch in, teach them the ins and outs of being parents.
Sharon: You worried they're not up to it?
Rey: I mean, are they gonna be challenged? Yeah.
[ Scoffs ] Mia never wanted to be a mother because she wasn't interested in giving up her freedom, and...
arturito, he's, uh... he's still a kid in a lot of ways. This means growing up fast.
Sharon: Maybe arturo is ready for something like this.
Rey: Maybe he is.
Sharon: How would you feel if they stayed?
Rey: I think it'd be a mistake.
Sharon: How come?
Rey: A clean break's the way to go. There is a downside, though. I would miss seeing my little niece or nephew grow up. Makes me sad.
Sharon: Well, then you'll just have to come up with excuses to visit. What mia and arturo did to you is going to hurt probably for some time. But time does help.
Rey: Sharon, I am so appreciative of how supportive you've been through all of this. But it's not just about what they did to me. It's about what I did to them, too. I need to take some blame for the way things went down.
Adam: Nick, I'm sorry. If I had known what victor was thinking when we left the ranch, I would have told him I wanted no part of it.
Nick: We both know this wasn't your doing.
Victor: You can question my methods, son, but not the idea. This is very important.
Nick: To you.
Victor: Of course to me. Adam is my son. This is an opportunity now for him to unlock his memory!
Adam: You made a unilateral decision without giving him a say. How is that an opportunity?
Nick: We have been asking ourselves that for years.
Victor: Now, does this mean you don't want to meet your son?
Adam: It's the timing.
Adam: The way you went about it, ambushing nick like this, in his own home. It's not right.
Nick: Thanks. I appreciate that.
Victor: Nicholas. Your brother is going through an extraordinarily difficult time. He needs your empathy, he needs your support.
Nick: Yeah, how about the empathy you've shown me or my feelings? I have a pretty big stake in this, too.
Victor: You say whatever you want. This is for your brother adam. He may reclaim his life after he has met his son.
Adam: Okay, this is nuts. You are -- you are pinning so much hope on this one moment, like I'm gonna gaze into the kid's eyes and suddenly have this big epiphany.
Victor: Do you remember when I gave you a lot of family photos back in vegas?
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Victor: And you threw away most of them, sharon tells me. But you kept christian'S. Which gives me the feeling that he may be the key to unlocking your memory.
Nick: Why did you keep that photo?
Adam: I... honestly couldn't say. The boy in the photo looked so innocent, and I was spinning out, struggling to comprehend what victor was telling me. I guess that could be part of it. Beyond that, I can't describe my feelings.
Victor: Well, maybe now we find out if there was instinct behind it.
Adam: It's not our call. It's nick'S. He gets to decide if we do this today or not.
"The young and the restless"
Nick: Hey, bud. I want you to meet someone.
Victor: Hey, my boy.
Nick: This... is your uncle adam, my brother.
Adam: I'm pleased to meet you, christian. Your grandpa told me a lot about you. Said you like to watch movies, especially cartoons. Have you seen any good ones lately? Well, this is a really nice place. I walked around a little. There's a big yard out back with swings and a sandbox and everything. Do you like to ride horses?
Nick: All right, I think, uh, that's good for today. It's his nap time.
Adam: A little tired, huh? Well, uh, I won't keep you, then.
Victor: [ Chuckles ]
Nick: Can you say goodbye to grandpa?
Victor: Come here, my boy. You have a good nap, okay? You have a good nap. Yes.
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Adam: I'm sorry. I know you wanted me to have some big reaction, but, um... I just don't feel it.
Victor: None of this felt familiar to you?
Adam: No. To me, he was just -- he was just another kid.
Billy: All great ideas. I don't know how I'm gonna choose. A costume gala, that would be super fun. George and martha, adorable. Gumby and pokey, don't even think about it. I got dibs on pokey. I honestly think that we just do it kind of small and we involve the kids. The kids are gonna have a blast in this summer with this.
Victoria: Hold on -- hold on a second, back up, back up. We're just -- we're missing a step, and a really important one.
Billy: Fancy versus casual?
Victoria: Look, I've made my case about how I feel and what i want going forward, and you have voiced your concerns, and I feel like I've done my best to address them.
Billy: You have done a bang-up job.
Victoria: I just want to make sure that you're okay with all of this.
Billy: I'll take you any way I can get you.
Victoria: I'm serious.
Billy: So am I.
Victoria: We're talking, at least for now, about making things permanent, even if we do it in our own way, but you have to be just as on board with this as I am in order for it to work.
Billy: Okay, let me talk this through for a second. No pre-nup, no cheesy bachelor party. I don't have to get gifts for the groomsmen, I don't have think about the other million things that go into a wedding like this. Babe, I am fine with this.
Victoria: I don't know if you're kidding or not.
Billy: That's one of my superpowers, one of many. Look, okay, I'm kind of joking, but not really. I am being serious. Guys, we -- we, you know, do the wedding thing because we know it's important to you, but, at the end of the day, we get what's at the end of the rainbow, which is all of this, the girl? That's all I want. That's like a dream come true to me, okay?
Victoria: Okay. So we're on the same page.
Billy: Same page.
Billy: And maybe one day we can revisit the whole "window dressing" idea, but, for right now, all we need is each other.
Rey: I knew mia was lonely, but instead of requesting a different assignment or more time off, I just kept doing the same thing, and I knew that was causing problems, but I kept doing it. I had obligations to my wife, and I did not live up to them.
Sharon: If you're saying that you pushed arturo and mia together, that's not credible. They had a choice. They didn't have to leap into bed together.
Rey: I need to own my part in this, sharon. I need to acknowledge that i could have been a better husband. Back in miami and here, too. After I learned about the affair... I became more concerned... with punishing mia than trying to fix things. And when this job opened up here, I just -- I jumped at it. But I was dishonest about my motives. I told mia what a great opportunity it was... when, really, I should have admitted that I wanted to be separated. And then when she followed me up here, I still wasn't truthful. Not with her, with you, or myself. I was living a lie. Agreeing to work on my marriage when that was... the last thing that I wanted because my heart was somewhere else.
Sharon: Go on.
Rey: There's nothing much else to say, I -- I didn't want a future with mia.
[ Sighs ] I wasn't brave enough to say it. Renewing my vows... pretending things were great when they really weren'T... it wasn't fair to her.
Sharon: Maybe it wasn't, but there's no road map for these things. You know, sometimes we need to stumble about and bump into a few things before we figure out where we're going, but if I can speak honestly...
Rey: Oh, you -- you better.
Sharon: How lucky am I that things didn't work out between you and your wife. And I think that mia's a fool for not seeing what she had in you. Though I'm glad that she didn't, for obvious reasons.
Victoria: We could have it at the house, with just friends and family, and abby could cater it.
Billy: That would be lovely.
Victoria: Or we could do something big and splashy at society or on the roof of the club. That would be fun.
Billy: A pool party. The kids would dig that.
Victoria: With a jamaican theme!
Victoria: And a treasure hunt.
Billy: Actually, I think we should spend your father's money, take the newman jet to jamaica, and have a party.
Victoria: Oh, that's actually a really cool idea. Uh, but maybe we should save the destination part for just us, you know?
Billy: Post-party vacation.
Victoria: Like a non-honeymoon honeymoon.
Billy: I like the way you think.
Victoria: But if we do want to do it up big, we could reach out to devon and ana and have some really top-notch music.
Billy: You're really diving into this thing, aren't you?
Victoria: I guess I am.
Billy: The best thing about it, we haven't mentioned adam yet, and we're talking about inviting family.
Victoria: Well, like I said, I can't put my future on hold because he suddenly turns up alive. I have things to do, I've got plans to make, and I honestly haven't thought about him since the last time you brought him up.
Billy: All this talk of partying makes me want to celebrate even sooner.
Victoria: Maybe something a little more intimate? Like for two people. At a lovely hotel suite. Just you and me.
Billy: Have I told you how i like the way you think?
Victoria: No. Tell me again.
Adam: I woke up wondering if this trip was a colossal mistake, and nothing that happened at nick's changed that. If anything, I think I scared that poor little kid. And, by the way, thank you for putting me in the middle of your little disagreement with nick. That was super fun for me.
Victor: Well, now, I had no choice, adam. Nicholas refused to communicate with me this morning when I was trying to set up this meeting. You're my priority.
Adam: All right, I get why nick would do that.
Adam: Along comes someone that could be a real threat. He loves that boy. Did you -- did you see how he made a point to introduce me as uncle adam, drawing a line in the sand? And who can blame him? I sure can'T. Nick hates me because I could take his kid. Billy hates me because I killed his kid! I am walking into all of this blind, and you wonder why I'm stressed. Why did you insist on bringing me back here if everybody I meet wants me gone?
Victor: Adam. Don't give up. You're adam newman. You're tough. We don't give up. It's in your dna.
Adam: I'm not interested in my dna, in my memories, any of it. I wish I never let sharon talk me into making the trip.
Victor: All right. Tell you what I'll do. I'll try to find chelsea. She loved you, and she grieved for you.
Adam: [ Sighs ] Then where is she?
Victor: I don't know right now, but I'm trying to find her.
Adam: That's it. I am through. I have had it with these vague promises, and I am tired of being manipulated. I don't like the way that you have handled any of this.
Victor: What are you saying?
Adam: I am going back to vegas.
Victor: You're going back to vegas? You have hardly been here for a day.
Adam: We're done.
Victor: You'll regret this.
Adam: The only thing that I'm gonna regret is missing the next flight west.
Rey: Thank you.
Rey: For everything. You've been so supportive throughout all this.
Sharon: You make it easy.
Rey: You even got me to admit that I have mixed feelings about the paternity test. I hardly ever open up like that. With anybody.
Sharon: Pretty incredible, huh?
Rey: It helped.
Sharon: I think you are going to be a terrific uncle, and when the time finally comes, you're going to be an amazing father.
Rey: Thank you for that.
Sharon: And, in the meantime, I've been holding back saying this because of all of the complications, but now I think it's time. Faith has been asking to spend more time with you because she knows how much you mean to me. Are you interested?
>Billy: I hope I don't have to tell you how much I love you, how happy I am that we are back together. I hope proposing to you and just being with you has shown you that. Cheers.
Victoria: Why don't you say it again? You know, just for kicks.
Billy: I love you. So much.
Victoria: I love you.
Nick: Couldn't sleep, huh? No. Did your uncle adam make you nervous? Yeah. Sorry about that. Well, the good news, we got our dinosaurs. Rawr! They always make you feel better. Here you go.
[ Christian growling ] There you go. Here, use 'em. Set them right there. I'll be right back.
[ Gunshot ]
Adam: [ Whimpers, groans ]
Next week on "the young and the restless"...
Paul: So adam is clearly the target.
Nick: Any chance you were the one who put that bullet in adam?
Rey: So you want to do it?
Sharon: Move in together?
Elena: Talking about leaving genoa city made me realize how much I wanted to stay.
