Previously on "the young and the restless"...
Sharon: The only problem i can see with you moving in is... I'll be losing a tenant.
Rey: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Are you...two moving in together?
[ Glass shatters ]
Tessa: [ Gasps ]
Mariah: Oh, my god! Wait, what are you doing?
Tessa: Sending your stalker a message. "Help me understand what I did to upset you."
Ana: We're just trying to introduce the world to a whole new tessa.
Mariah: What's wrong with the old tessa?
Ana: I hear you. If we cultivate the right image for her, it will only enhance her voice and the music.
Adam: I don't know dad's agenda, only mine.
Victoria: Then why don't you save us both a little time and tell me what that is.
Adam: I want to talk to you and nick -- together.
[ Knocks on door ]
Victoria: Hey. You got adam's text?
Nick: Yeah. What do you think he wants to talk about?
Victoria: I don't know. When I saw him in the hospital, he said that he had an agenda that he wanted to discuss with us when he got out.
Nick: He can't be out already.
Victoria: Well, whatever he's up to, he's not wasting any time. He told me that he's changed.
Nick: Changed into what?
Victoria: Maybe he wants to be a family again.
Nick: No, this is just a ploy to keep the family off-balance, trust me.
Victoria: What should we do?
Nick: We need to be prepared for anything.
Adam: [ Groans ] What, uh -- what are you doing here?
Sharon: I heard you were home. I came to see if you needed anything.
Adam: Uh, I'm -- I'm good. Mm-hmm.
Sharon: Up on your feet already.
Sharon: Seems a little soon.
Adam: Well, thank you for your concern, but, as you can see, I am more than
Sharon: Um, okay, what can i do?
Adam: Stop breathing down my neck, sharon.
Adam: Everybody is constantly in my face, okay?
Sharon: You have a lot of people who care about you.
Adam: Okay, well, save it for someone who needs it.
Sharon: Why are you pushing me away like this? Something's going on. I want to know what it is.
Kyle: So... we need an apartment as nice as the last one we saw...
Lola: But not in the neighborhood as hip as the last one.
Kyle: Hmm, something in the assisted living part of town?
Lola: It was just full of college kids and bars, and after a very long night at society... I just want peace. With you, to rest.
Kyle: Okay. Okay. No all-night party areas.
Lola: [ Sighs ] We are never going to find the right place.
Kyle: Hey, we will. As long as we're together, it's gonna be perfect.
Rey: You two lovebirds still looking for an apartment. Hmm. Must be some kind of sign.
Kyle: What's up, man?
Lola: I thought you were cool with us living together.
Rey: I am. Just saying, everything happens for a reason.
Lola: Okay. Stop talking to me in riddles and tell me why you're smiling so much.
Rey: Because I am moving in with sharon. So my apartment... all yours.
Sharon: Why won't you tell me what's wrong?
Adam: [ Sighs ] I have an appointment.
Sharon: What kind?
Adam: The kind that doesn't concern you.
Sharon: Is it at the hospital? I'll drive you.
Adam: Mnh-mnh, it's not that kind of appointment. And I'm late as it is, sharoN.
Sharon: It's so important that it can't wait until you're healed?
Sharon: Why won't you let me help you?
Adam: You have already gone above and beyond. As you know, I got my memory back, which means there's a lot for me to deal with. I can handle it.
Sharon: I can't imagine how overwhelming this must be.
Adam: No, you can'T.
Sharon: Well, then tell me. I'm right here.
Adam: [ Sighs ] Look. Sharon, what you've done, I will never be able to thank you enough for that, but you have your own life. A good life. Rey seems like a stand-up guy. Hang on to that.
Sharon: I will. But that doesn't mean that --
Adam: I am glad that things are working out with him. You deserve only the best. I got to head out.
Mariah: Oh, my gosh. I'm so -- I'm so sorry.
For what, exactly?
Mariah: Okay, uh, I'm gonna go.
You have no idea who I am.
Mariah: We've met before?
Never face to face. But not for lack of trying on my part. For weeks, I gave you the benefit of the doubt, thinking, "she's busy with the show, she'll get to my letters eventually."
Mariah: You wrote me.
Several times. Jared.
Mariah: Okay, well, um, you know, I'm actually late to get to the studio, but, um, if you tell me your last name, maybe I can look through the mail and see --
Not worth it. Besides, I know for a fact that you sure as hell got my note.
Mariah: The brick through the window. That was you.
Have a seat, mariah. We need to have a talk.
Lola: This is fantastic news.
Rey: [ Chuckles ] Mm. What, me moving in with sharon, or you and kyle taking over that apartment?
Rey: I know. Both.
Lola: I mean, come on. Roomy kitchen, and it's right upstairs from the perfect cup of coffee... and not to mention it gets so much natural light.
Kyle: And it's quiet at night for us senior citizens.
Kyle: [ Chuckles ]
Lola: But, seriously, I am so happy that things are working out with you and sharon.
Rey: It's been a rough couple months. For all of us.
Lola: But look at us now, right? This is the first time in years that I won't be having a rosales as a roommate.
Rey: I'm gonna miss having you cook for me.
Lola: Well, if you ever get a hankering for a ropa vieja... you can stop by society.
Rey: [ Chuckling ] Oh! What about some good old-fashioned family dinners/ that way, I can keep an eye on you.
Lola: In your dreams.
Rey: I got to make sure that this guy's taking care of you.
Lola: I can take care of myself.
Rey: Okay. Out of that apartment doesn't mean out of your life.
Kyle: Of course not.
Rey: Bring it on in here. Come here.
[ Clears throat ] You two be good to each other.
Lola: Yeah. You, too. And, hey, no take-backs. Be good to sharon. I love you.
Rey: I love you.
Kyle: Thanks, man. Really appreciate it.
Rey: I'd do anything for this girl.
Kyle: That makes two of us.
Lola: Let's go grab your stuff.
Lola: Yes. I don't want to wait to start living with you.
Kyle: [ Sighs ] I know the feeling.
Ana: What do you think?
Tessa: Uh, I'm -- I'm speechless.
Ana: I know, right?
Tessa: Uh, when you said that you were gonna change the song, I didn't realize that you were gonna make it so, uh...
Tessa: Yeah, that -- that's one way to describe it.
Ana: Yeah. I added some layers, tossed in a few strings, mixed in a couple harmonies, and I amped up the bass.
Tessa: I -- I kind of wonder if everything that you loved about the song in the first place kind of gets lost in the production.
Ana: What are you talking about?
Tessa: Well, it's just not very me.
Ana: Well, this is the new you, the tessa that millions of people are gonna fall in love with, and the sound that's gonna send you to the top of the charts.
Tessa: It's just so different.
Ana: Well, get used to it. We've got your sound down. Now all we need to do is style you up.
Ana: I'll be right back!
Tessa: Ana, I -- I kind of like me the way I am.
Ana: Then you're going to love the outfits I've come up with.
Adam: [ Sighs ] Good. Glad you both are here.
Nick: You are out of the hospital.
Adam: Mm-hmm. Doc gave me the all-clear.
Nick: We heard the shooter turned himself in.
Victoria: It's amazing how that happened.
Nick: And really convenient. I mean, he shoots you, then goes to the police, then confesses.
Adam: Well, what can I say, nick? I'm a walking miracle.
Victoria: In the hospital, you said something about an agenda.
Adam: Victor wants me back at newman. I sensed he's deeply disappointed in the two of you, the way you've chosen to handle yourselves and his business, which would explain the fact that he's put me on the fast track, groom me to take over.
Victoria: Did you come here to gloat?
Adam: Just stating the facts.
Nick: And you felt the need to come and tell us this in person because...?
Adam: Well, I thought you deserved to know the truth. Victor doesn't value you or your work.
Nick: This is exactly why you should be here at dark horse. Take a spot here. You will always be at the top.
Victoria: You know, you've talked a lot about what dad's plans are and what he wants. What do you want, adam?
Adam: Listen, I didn't come here to upset you.
Victoria: Do you think I look upset?
Adam: You've gotten better at this, and you've done pretty well for yourself at newman. The numbers have gone up since you've been C.O.O.
Victoria: I don't need your praise.
Adam: Mm, well, I hope you're getting it from somewhere because you sure as hell won't get it from victor. You're vastly underappreciated there, and there he is, repaying your hard work by putting me in charge less than a week after I'm back in town.
Nick: Congratulations, adam.
Adam: For what?
Victoria: On your new job.
Adam: Newman is the last place I want to be.
Victoria: You turned him down?
Adam: When I was out there playing poker, I called the shots. My life's on my own terms. No way I'm gonna be someone's puppet trained to take over a company I don't give a damn about.
Nick: Well, dad is just gonna love this. I mean, he worked so hard to help you get your memory back.
Adam: The future's what I'm focused on. I'm ready to turn my back on newman, on everything.
Nick: For a price?
Adam: I only want three little things.
[ Knocks on door ]
Sharon: Come in!
Welcome home, rey!
Rey: Oh, my god, you guys... you really didn't have to do all this.
Faith: I told you he'd think it's lame.
Rey: I love it.
Faith: In that case, it was totally my idea. But mom helped a little.
Rey: It's terrific. Thank you. And since I know me moving is a big deal, especially for you...
Faith: [ Gasps ] Wow!
Rey: If you've already got them, we can return them.
Faith: These are amazing. I can't -- mom told you I love books?
Faith: [ Gasps ]
Rey: This one is a 21st century adaptation of "little women."
Faith: I haven't even read the original. And this one...
Faith: She's a detective my age.
Rey: Mm. So I did good?
Faith: You did great. I can't wait to dig in.
Sharon: After your homework.
Faith: [ Sighs ] Thank you, rey.
Rey: It's my pleasure.
Faith: Maybe it won't be so bad having you here after all.
Sharon: I beg your pardon.
Faith: I'm kidding. Mostly.
Rey: I'll tell you what. In order to make sure things never get awkward or frustrating, what do you say we make a deal?
Faith: Let's hear it first.
Rey: Smart. Never agree to the deal unless you know the terms. If you ever have a problem, you talk to me or your mom. We'll talk it out. I want to hear what's on your mind.
Rey: I can take it.
Faith: Good. Because it's time for our first family meeting.
How do you do it? Sit in front of that camera every week pretending like you care about your viewers?
Mariah: I do care.
Then why ignore me?
Mariah: That -- that was never my intention.
You think I wanted to throw that brick through your window? Of course not. You left me no choice, though. But now that I'm here... you can't deny there's a connection.
Kyle: [ Sighs ]
Lola: What's in that one, your fall collection or your coronation wear?
Kyle: It's not that much.
Lola: You know, I hope I made enough space in our bedroom closet.
Kyle: Our bedroom. Huh. I like the sound of that.
Lola: Me, too. I took the night off so we could celebrate.
Kyle: Mmm, first service for your sous-chef. I bet she's excited.
Lola: And a little nervous, but it means that I can stay here and focus on us and make our first meal.
Lola: So go ahead and unpack, and I will let you know when it's ready.
Kyle: Ooh, unpacking can wait. Right now, what I think we should do is have a little housewarming.
Ana: Can I be honest?
Ana: You look... amazing. This is exactly what we were going for.
Tessa: It is?
Ana: Of course! You're electric! Edgy! Unpredictable. You're also holding back. What's on your mind?
Tessa: No! No. Uh, it's -- it's just I am... dying to see what else you came up with.
Ana: Trust me. You're gonna love it!
Adam: All I want is to move as far away from genoa city as i can get.
Nick: If we meet your demands.
Adam: Nick, this isn't a hostage situation.
Victoria: Well, that's what it feels like.
Nick: Just get to it. What do you want?
Adam: Money so I can start again somewhere else.
Nick: Of course. And how much would that be?
Adam: Same amount you two won in your lawsuit against our father.
Nick: $500 million?
Adam: Why not?
Nick: [ Laughs ]
[ Sighs ] Well, I guess you never heard, slick, but I gave all mine away to charity.
Victoria: Hid it from dad.
Adam: [ Clears throat ] We all know dad will never give up that kind of green. Especially if I'm using it to get away from him.
Victoria: Well, what do you expect us to do?
Adam: You know the company like the back of your hand. I'm sure you could figure out a way to make it happen.
Nick: Hold up. Did you just ask her to embezzle corporate funds?
Adam: Such an ugly word.
Nick: But if she gets you a half-a-billion dollars, you will leave town? You must be out of your mind.
Victoria: You said you had three demands. What else do you want?
Adam: Tell me where I can find chelsea and connor.
Nick: They left town without a trace. I have no idea where they are.
Adam: Somehow, I just don't believe that's true, nick.
Nick: Well, I don't care what you believe.
Victoria: And the third request?
Adam: Christian. I want my son.
"The young and the restless"
Faith: And I get screen time till 9:00, as long as I finish my homework. And I always get it done.
Rey: That's good to know.
Faith: And then there's soccer.
Rey: Well, we're gonna call it by its rightful name --
futbol. You play?
Rey: What position?
Faith: Forward. So, here's the deal. When I'm out there with my team, no running up and down the sidelines screaming at the ref or at me.
Rey: Cross my heart.
Faith: And one more thing. After dinner, you load the dishwasher.
Rey: [ Gasps ]
Sharon: Nice try, faith.
Rey: That's her job?
Faith: But he's welcome to help.
Sharon: [ Giggles ]
Faith: Extra mouth, extra plates.
Rey: Maybe we can find a way to share.
Faith: I'm reasonable. We'll work something out.
Sharon: Speaking of work, how's your social studies project coming?
Faith: Okay, okay. I can take a hint. And I almost forgot the most important rule. Keep my mom happy.
Rey: It's my favorite thing to do.
Faith: Glad to hear it. See ya.
Rey: You think she likes me?
Rey: [ Sighs ] She's a pretty cool kid.
Sharon: You're pretty lucky to live here with us.
Rey: Don't I know it.
Sharon: Welcome home, rey.
Mariah: Look, I can understand why you're upset.
I'm not upset. Not anymore. As painful as it is, I've come to accept the truth, that you're... a self-centered, thoughtless piece of trash masquerading as a decent human being.
Tessa: Okay, who in the actual hell are you?
Mariah: This is jared. He's the one who sent me the messages.
Tessa: Oh, so you're brick boy.
Hey! What the hell?
Tessa: Did you know that throwing a brick through someone's window is a felony? One push of this button, and your photo goes viral at the police department. So your best move right now is to drive far away from genoa city and stay the hell away, or we will rain down hell on your world like you've never imagined.
Tessa: Not a word! Just go!
Mariah: [ Sighs ] Hi.
Tessa: Are you okay?
Mariah: Yeah, I'm okay.
Tessa: You're trembling.
Mariah: I'm okay.
Tessa: What happened?
Mariah: I was just, um -- I was texting you, and he came out of nowhere. He was just -- just standing there, and he started talking about how he watches gc buzz, and he sent me a bunch of letters, and I was the one who basically forced him to throw a brick through the window.
Tessa: Okay, the guy's a stalker, mariah. None of this is your fault.
Mariah: I honestly don't know what I would have done if you hadn't got here when you did. Like some avenging angel.
Tessa: That was pretty awesome, right?
[ Sighs ] If only I could use my powers on myself.
Mariah: Wait, what do you -- what do you mean? What are you even doing here? I thought you were on your way to ana's to listen to your song.
Tessa: [ Scoffs ] Yeah. That happened.
Mariah: Well, how did it go? Tell me everything.
Tessa: Are you sure? I mean, after everything that's already happened today?
Mariah: No. Please. It'll help take my mind off of everything. So give me the deets.
Tessa: It was awful. Totally unrecognizable.
Mariah: Wait, you or the song?
Tessa: Both. I mean, every piece of heart and soul from the song was just eviscerated.
Tessa: I don't know. I guess ana thought that we needed to be prettied up or that she wasn't doing her job if she didn't add her own style.
Mariah: Okay. Was it really that bad?
Tessa: Trust me, there was none of me left in it.
Mariah: Well, did you talk to her about it?
Tessa: I tried, but then she just wanted me to put on some outfits.
Mariah: That bad? Oh! Wow. Uh... [ Scoffs ]
Tessa: Yeah. Still think I'm exaggerating? She's just gotten rid of everything that makes me, me. I just -- what should I do?
Mariah: I can't tell you that.
Tessa: No, but this is my second chance, and I really, really don't want to screw it up.
Mariah: And you're not going to because you know exactly who you are and what you want. You just have to be honest with yourself. You are talented, brilliant, and beautiful, and guess what? I am with you every step of the way. No matter what you choose.
Nick: There is no way in hell you are taking my son.
Adam: Christian is my son.
Nick: You have never been a father to him, not ever. If you try to get custody, I will fight you with everything I have.
Adam: And you will lose.
Nick: You switched the paternity results so sage and i thought that christian was mine. How's that gonna look? And you've been in vegas living as a card shark, doing god knows what?
Adam: But now I know who i am, and I want my son.
Nick: You asked me to raise him as my own, and I've done that, and I will continue to do that. You can't come here and change your mind.
Victoria: Why are you doing this?
Adam: Because he's mine. I've already missed so much of his life, and he should be with me as far away from victor newman as we can get.
Victoria: You know, you've spent so much time and energy trying to prove yourself, fighting for recognition because you felt like an outsider. Now you just want to walk away?
Adam: [ Sighs ] I am starting a new life. All right? I want to make a different kind of life with my son.
Nick: I promise you --
Victoria: Listen. Nick and I, we have a lot to process.
[ Sighs ] The sooner you make this happen, the sooner I will be tail lights on the highway. That's my new number. Clock's ticking.
Nick: That son-of-a-bitch. This was his agenda all along.
Victoria: God, I knew he would turn things upside-down, but this is beyond.
Nick: This could be a pretty sweet deal for you.
Victoria: How so?
Nick: He takes off, your keep your seat in the hierarchy at newman.
Victoria: Well, he sticks around, he can still go after custody of his son.
Nick: [ Scoffs ]
Victoria: I mean, your son. He's always been your son.
Nick: This is what he wanted, for us to be at each other's throats.
Victoria: I know that because he knows that neither one of us will back down.
Nick: He is so dangerous, vick. We can't let him win.
[ Smoke detector beeping ]
Lola: The oven! Oh, my god, I forgot to turn it off!
Kyle: Our first fire!
Lola: Get a magazine, or something!
Kyle: [ Laughing ] For what?
Lola: To blow away the smoke!
Kyle: [ Grunts ]
Lola: Turn that off, please!
Kyle: [ Grunts ] I can't reach it.
[ Beeping continues ]
Lola: Oh, my god, I can't believe that this is happening. Get a broom!
Kyle: How's that gonna help if you don't --
Lola: So you can reach the button, kyle!
Kyle: Oh! Smart!
Lola: Have you never done this before?
Lola: Oh, my god, please make it stop.
Kyle: Which button?
Lola: Any button! Just make it stop!
[ Beeping stops ]
Kyle: [ Chuckles ] That...was...amazing.
[ Laughs ]
Lola: Are you crazy? I just burnt our first dinner. Everything's ruined.
Kyle: Eh, we'll get something delivered. Later. And the night is most definitely not ruined.
Nick: You thought he was sincere about what, stealing my kid, extortion?
Victoria: I'm only saying --
Nick: Are you the one with amnesia, vick? Did you forget who adam is? He is out to screw us over. Do not ever forget that.
Victoria: I think we should take a couple of steps back and look at things logically.
Nick: Yeah, his first demand is a half-a-billion dollars, and he expects you to take that from the company? Dad would never forgive you, and adam will be in your seat before the chair is cool.
Victoria: Well, maybe there's a way that I can come up with the money without anyone knowing.
Nick: And going after custody of christian. That's not happening. It's my name on the birth certificate. I'm his father. I'm the one who reads him stories at night, I hug him when he's hurt. I'm teaching him right from wrong. That boy is my heart.
Victoria: I know. You're the only father he's ever known.
Nick: And there's no way I'm just handing him over to adam. It's not happening.
Victoria: I wonder what he wants with chelsea and connor.
Nick: I don't care. There's no way I'm dragging her into this.
Victoria: Wait, what? You know where she is?
[ Piano plays ]
[ Doorbell rings ]
Ana: Hey! Yeah, come on in. You forget something?
Tessa: No, no. Uh, I just -- I played the song for mariah, and listening back to the song, I -- I just don't think I was clear about things earlier.
Tessa: I have some reservations about what you did to my track.
Ana: Well, I know we're not on the same page yet.
Tessa: We're not even in the same book. Look. I am so grateful for this opportunity, and I value your talent and expertise, and I just hope that that goes both ways.
Ana: Go on.
Tessa: Well... the song means a lot to me. All of my music does. It's deep and personal, and i want people to hear it and feel the same way that I did when i wrote it, just me. On my fire escape, pouring my heart out, late at night. I -- I just feel like the original impulse of the song is getting lost in the production.
Ana: I see.
Tessa: Maybe if we just strip it back a little, get back to its essence. We don't really need to dress it up, or me, for that matter. We should just keep things simple. Original.
Ana: So you're a producer now.
Tessa: No, no, that's not what I'm saying.
Ana: Well, I don't think i made myself clear earlier, either. This is a business, tessa. It's not about how you feel inside. It's about giving the people what they want, and the people want dressed up.
Mariah: I just don't think you're listening to tessa.
Ana: And I don't think i asked for your opinion. She can speak for herself. It all comes down to this, tessa. Do you want a career in the music business, or not?
Ana: Since we're being honest with each other, the song is pretty. It has real potential. And your quirky indie girl look is charming. I mean that. But it's not gonna sell. Not at the level I expect. Look, I respect your talent, I really do. I never would have signed you again if I didn'T. But there are a million other people out there who would give anything for the chance I've given you.
Tessa: So what's the bottom line?
Ana: Either we do this my way, fully and completely, the sound and the look, or we cut ties.
Tessa: I'm sorry, but that's not my song, and I can't be someone I'm not.
Ana: You sure about this?
Tessa: I've never been more sure of anything in the my life. Burn the contract.
Ana: Looks like you got what you wanted, to hold her back, watch her fail.
Mariah: Tessa never fails. She just doesn't settle for anything less than she's worth.
Sharon: So, we're doing this.
Rey: Living together.
Sharon: This is our home now. And I can't wait to start filling it with wonderful memories.
Victoria: You know where chelsea is?
Nick: [ Sighs ] No, but she tried to contact me recently.
Victoria: And you didn't tell me?
Nick: I didn't text her back.
Victoria: Nick, this is -- she has no idea that adam's alive?
Nick: Well, until recently, he was a poker player named spider. A man without a memory. What the hell was I supposed to tell her?
Victoria: She has a right to know!
Nick: No, she has a right to be in peace. Look, we both know adam is as devious as ever. I don't trust him! Do you?
Victoria: No, but --
Nick: But you think it's fine for me to inflict him on her and connor?
Victoria: Whether or not she decides to see him or have adam in her life, that should be her decision.
Nick: No, I'm doing the right thing.
Victoria: Look, I know that your gut instinct is to protect her, but if adam wants to find his way to chelsea, he's gonna do it whether she wants him to or not. And you have to prepare her for that. I know you're gonna do the right thing.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Nick: Hey. It's me.
Adam: Made a decision?
Nick: As a matter of fact, I have.
Next week on "the young and the restless"...
Nate: It's not good news. That doesn't mean we can't fight this, we can.
Victor: And we will.
Ashley: The difficult thing is explaining this to mother.
Dina: I already know. You all just want to get rid of me.
Michael: "I, neil ellis winters, of genoa city, wisconsin, do hereby declare this to be my last will and testament.
