[ Luggage rumbling ]
Abby: Hi! Nina, our new roommates are here! This is so exciting.
[ Luggage slams ]
[ Laughter ]
Tessa: Hi. Yes. Thank you so much. This is by far the best decision we have ever made.
Mariah: Babe, I said that i could move the bags myself.
Tessa: Um, no, not on a day like today. Embryo transfer day? You need to take it easy.
Nina: I agree with tessa.
Abby: And I agree with nina. Save your strength for the pregnancy.
Mariah: Well, I could get used to this.
Abby: This baby is gonna be so loved, starting on day one.
Nick: Not hungry?
Faith: I'm just worried about rey.
Nick: Look, faith, I know you're a teenager and you don't believe a lot of what your parents say right now. But trust me -- rey's gonna be okay.
Faith: We don't know that for sure. He's still unconscious and mom's so scared and there's nothing we can do to help her.
Sharon: You know what? I think that when you get out of here, we should have a party. Nothing big, just, you know, a little [Voice breaking] Afternoon reception or... just to thank everybody who's been helping out -- you know, the doctors, the nurses, paul and everyone at the station, everybody who's been chipping in. Nikki and victor -- they looked after faith last night. And she's with nick now. Lola and mariah have been amazing. And you know what? Lola is gonna make all of your favorites for a big dinner, so you better get well because you don't want lola's amazing tamales going cold -- 'cause they're a lot better than mine. Rey, I... I want to remind you of something. The vows that we took at our wedding. We promised that we would be there for each other, for better or for worse. You can't leave me now because we're supposed to be partners through everything, big and small and...good and bad. We said that we would be by each other's side now and -- and...
Devon: Hey. It's me. Um...I just wanted to call and say that I'm sorry for everything, and I would really appreciate if we could meet up and talk. If you just tell me a time and a place, I will be there. Um...I just -- I really don't want this to be the end for us, so... okay. Thanks.
Amanda: Devon left me a message.
Phyllis: Ohh. What'd he say?
Amanda: I don't know. I'm not listening to it.
Phyllis: You're not just a little curious?
Amanda: No. As a matter of fact, hmm... delete. So I am not even tempted to listen to any more of his apologies or justifications.
Phyllis: Right, right. Of course.
[ Clears throat ] I mean, I just -- I saw his heartfelt declaration to you. It seemed passionate, so... I mean... did that not get to you even a little bit?
Elena: Shouldn't you be in the kitchen cooking up a storm?
Lola: Yes, but, um, I'm short a server tonight, and I'm really just trying to take my mind off of things. You know, I just don't understand why rey isn't awake yet.
Elena: Well --
Lola: You know what? And I get that the antidote -- like, it takes time to process through the body and stuff, like medicine or science or whatever, but it's driving me crazy, elena. Like, I just really want to, like, run to the hospital and look at my brother and give him a good shake, and maybe that'll speed things up.
Elena: You know, in my years of medical school, no one has ever taught me the shaking technique.
Lola: [ Sighs heavily ]
Elena: Look, I know it's frustrating. But nate knows what he's doing. So just let the antidote work its way through rey's system.
Elena: For what?
Lola: For calming me down. You have an excellent bedside manner.
Elena: Is there anything else I can help you with?
Lola: Well, I wanted to make rey tamales, so maybe you can, you know --
[ Cellphone ringing ] It's sharon.
[ Chuckles ] Rey's awake! He's gonna be okay.
[ Cellphone pings ]
Faith: It's mom.
Nick: Is it good news?
Faith: Yeah. The best. Allergies don't have to be scary.
provided by... does your vitamin c last 24 hours?
Amanda: Whose side are you on exactly?
Phyllis: I'm not on devon's side. I mean, it just seems like you still have feelings for him.
Amanda: Well, that's beside the point.
Phyllis: I mean, I saw his heartfelt declaration. It seemed sincere. Why don't you just want to hear him out?
Amanda: Because I don't want to hear anything else he has to say. And when he was here pouring his heart out to me, I did the right thing. I walked away.
Phyllis: Right. I'm not taking sides. I'm not taking sides. It's just that, you know, in the past, I've let my anger and my stubbornness get the best of me, and I missed out on what i really wanted. And I don't want to see the same for you.
Amanda: Okay, listen, phyllis. I know that this is coming from a place of friendship and concern. But right now I just need to wallow.
[ Cellphone ringing ] It's naya.
Phyllis: Oh, okay. I'll let you have your privacy. I'm not taking sides.
Amanda: Thank you. Hi. This is amanda.
Naya: Hello. Thank you for picking up.
Amanda: Yeah. Of course. This is a nice surprise. How are you?
Naya: I'm fine. Um, I'd like to see you.
Amanda: Oh. Um, sure. How about this weekend?
Naya: Well, the truth is, amanda, um, I don't think this can wait.
Mariah: I have a good omen for today. Rey is awake.
Tessa: Oh, my god.
Nina: Oh, thank god. Oh, your mother must be so relieved.
Abby: That's so good to hear.
Tessa: Is he getting out of the hospital soon?
Mariah: I don't know. I don't have any details. But as soon as I do, I will pass them along. However, I do have something from devon that I am supposed to open today.
Tessa: Oh. That's unexpected.
Mariah: It says, "when I was a little kid, I didn't have much, but I always held on to a penny, hoping it would one day bring me good luck. I am now giving the penny to you. I know it will bring us the best of luck today."
Abby: That is so sweet.
Nina: What a good, kind man. Uh, nothing to see here. Move along.
[ Laughter ]
Mariah: You know what? I am going to hang on to this and bring it to the appointment today.
Abby: I love that. We could use all the good luck in the world.
Mariah: I'm ready. I've done everything I've been instructed to do -- the medication, the vitamins, syncing up my cycles. All systems are go.
Tessa: I will vouch for her. She has been, let's say, rigid about her medication schedule.
Mariah: Well, when it's this important, I can follow rules as well as anyone.
Abby: This is just so exciting. If everything goes as expected today, all of our lives could be changing.
Nate: Looks good. Vitals appear to be improving. He's on the mend. We got him the antidote in time.
Rey: Wait. Wait a minute. Antidote? What are you -- what are you talking about?
Sharon: You were exposed to a very poisonous substance.
Nate: Thallium. It got into your bloodstream somehow and wreaked havoc on your nervous system.
Sharon: But nate and elena -- they were very resourceful, and they were able to make a diagnosis based on your weird symptoms before your condition got even worse.
Rey: Oh, I had no idea. Thank you, nate. Sounds like you saved my life.
N the question is, how did thallium get into your system?
Rey: I have no idea.
Nate: Have you had shellfish or any kind of seafood in the last few days?
Nate: Have you been to an industrial or hazardous site where you could have inhaled it while working a case?
Nate: Mm. Any sort of exposure to an unusual chemical compound or a toxin?
Rey: No, no, no. So, how the hell was I exposed to this? Stouffer's mac and cheese is made with 100% real cheese.
Nick: So, you're hungry now?
Faith: [ Chuckles ] I kind of am. It's such a relief that rey's awake.
Nick: I'm just glad you called me, you know? I know it may seem like I've been a little overbearing lately.
Faith: Well, I only think that because you have been.
Nick: Well, nobody knows for sure. But if I was, I know you still love me.
Faith: Yeah, I do. I was worried about rey -- and a little scared. And when I'm afraid, I want to be with you because you make me feel safe.
Nick: Well, as your dad, i can't tell you how good that makes me feel that you said that. So, thank you.
Faith: It's the truth.
Nick: You know what? I think I'm gonna try, too, to, you know, tone down the hovering a little bit.
Faith: Thank you.
Nick: You just seem like you're in such a better place, you know? I don't feel like I need to worry about you as much.
Faith: Yeah, definitely. I mean, some of the kids at school are still monsters, but I'm making a new friend who is 100% on my side.
Nick: That sounds promising.
Faith: Yeah, and rey's gonna be okay. It feels like things could only get better now because they can't get much worse.
Nick: Well, I don't know where you stand on this right now, but there is a way to kind of help you feel better.
Nick: Yeah. Faith, I know it's a touchy subject, but it could be good for you, you know? It seems like maybe it's the right time to give it a shot.
Faith: Okay. Yeah, I'm in. I think maybe I'm finally ready.
Nate: Thallium is rarely found in nature. It's usually a byproduct of an industrial process. If mishandled, it can contaminate agricultural sites and get into the food chain, but usually not at this high a dosage.
Rey: So you think it's something I ate?
Sharon: Could it have been in the food at crimson lights?
Rey: Well, I haven't eaten there in at least a week.
Nate: Well, with the amount that was found in your body, you'd have to eat a lot of tainted food to get to that level. Plus, if it were in the food chain, we'd be seeing additional cases here at the hospital.
Rey: So, how did I get in contact with it?
Nate: I'm just trying to eliminate the possibilities right now, you know, a little bit of playing detective. I don't mean to step on your toes, rey.
Rey: Step away.
Nate: I'd like to have everyone in your household tested -- just a simple blood test.
Sharon: Of course. Though faith and I don't have any symptoms.
Rey: It's just to be safe, sharon.
Nate: Exactly. I'd also like to get an inspection team to your house as soon as possible.
Sharon: Alright. I'll let the ranch security know so they can have access.
Nate: Great, great. I'll, uh, contact the health department and have them set that up.
Sharon: I've been in touch with arturo and everyone in miami. I think we should call your mom. She would want to hear your voice.
Rey: Thank you. I want to talk to her soon, but first I want to talk to you.
Tessa: Did you bring all the chargers?
Mariah: Uh, well, we have about 100 of them. So, I brought some, but I'm sure we'll get by.
Tessa: Uh, what about my liz phair poster? Did we leave that behind?
Mariah: We did. But, you know, I don't think the chancellor mansion can handle her 1990s vibe.
Tessa: I know. It's just, when I'm stuck on a song, I just look at her. And then I picture her yelling at me until I finish the song. And it helps a lot.
Mariah: Okay. Okay, we will go back for her, alright? Thank you.
Tessa: For what?
Mariah: For being so supportive, so much so that you would uproot your life and move in here.
Tessa: I mean, it's not really that much of a sacrifice.
Mariah: I just... I just mean about everything. Thank you. I feel supported.
Tessa: Well, that's good. But I really think you're the generous one in this scenario. The gift you're giving abby and chance -- I mean, it's amazing. I do have one question.
Mariah: What's that?
Tessa: Do you think we get our own wing at this place?
Mariah: You know, I don't know. I haven't lived in many mansions in my life. Crazy, right?
Abby: Healthy, delicious snacks.
Mariah: Abby, you know I was kidding when I talked about snapping my fingers and demanding to be fed, right?
Nina: Yes, but you still have to eat.
Tessa: Yes, and while you chow down, I am going to take the rest of the luggage out.
Nina: Yes. I'll help you.
Mariah: Thank you for the carrot sticks, but you know you didn't have to do that, right?
Abby: Just let me feel like I'm being helpful.
Mariah: Okay. You got it.
Abby: Are you sure you're still okay about all this?
Mariah: About moving in? Absolutely.
Abby: No. About everything. I just want you to know, if something doesn't feel right, you can step away at the last minute.
Mariah: Got it. But I am completely on board.
Abby: Okay, but, I mean, if you're having any second thoughts, I want you to tell me.
Mariah: Thank you for that out. But this feels incredibly important, and I don't want to let you down.
Abby: I know you've had some fears about it working.
Mariah: No. No. No more fears, okay? Something this important has got to work.
Abby: [ Breathes deeply ] Losing a tooth didn't stop you
Tessa: Well, I think it is almost time for your appointment, so we should head out?
Abby: Nina, are you sure you don't want to come with us?
Nina: No, I've got plenty of things to occupy me here, but my heart and my hopes are with you.
Abby: You ready?
Mariah: I'm ready. I'm ready if you are. I know you wish chance could be here today.
Abby: I do. I miss him so much, and I wish that he could experience all of this with us, but I will tell him all about it when he comes home. And I know exactly what he would say right now. He would say, "let's do this!"
Mariah: Let's get pregnant!
[ Laughter ] Thanks.
Abby: [ Exhales sharply ]
[ Door closes ]
Nate: Thanks for getting to the patient's house so quickly. It's an urgent situation. Exactly. So, let me know what you find as soon as you can. Okay. Thank you.
Devon: Appreciate it. Hey.
Nate: Devon. Hey. Hold up. Um... I think you should know amanda figured out what went down with you and elena.
Devon: Yeah. Thanks. I learned that when she came and told me.
Nate: Oh. I can honestly say she didn't hear it from me. She was putting the pieces together on her own.
Devon: Mm. I mean, as smart as she is, I'm sure it didn't take her very long to figure things out.
Nate: Yeah. But I want you to know it didn't come from me.
Devon: Doesn't really matter anyway. Actions have consequences, so...
Nate: Definitely. And that goes both ways.
Phyllis: How are you? Good to see you guys. Hey, your manicurist will be ready in a little bit.
Faith: Oh, great. Thanks for hooking me up with an appointment on my day off. Um, mind if I sit down while i wait?
Nick: So, what you're saying is you'd rather spend time with your phone than your dad?
Faith: I've been talking to you all morning.
Nick: That's fair. She has. Yeah.
Phyllis: How's it going?
Nick: It's going great. Faith and I are making some solid progress.
Phyllis: Good news. Good.
Nick: And even better than that, rey is awake and he's on his road to recovery.
Phyllis: Oh, that's great. That's great. I'm happy. But I'm happier for that little girl over there because she needs a break. And I know how much she cares for rey.
[ Cellphone pings ] You really want to know who she's texting. It's killing you that you don't know, right?
Nick: I have some idea who it is. She said she made a new friend. And we're both happy about it.
Sharon: We'll have plenty of time to talk later. Right now, I just think you should rest. I don't want you to strain yourself.
Rey: Feeling okay. I'm just... I'm just starting to remember, sort of putting the pieces together of what happened. I'm so glad you didn't listen to me when I kept saying I didn't need to go to the hospital.
Sharon: [ Voice breaking ] You were in really bad shape. And I was petrified. But I knew you needed help. It's okay. I know you didn't do it on purpose.
Rey: You're right about that.
Sharon: It was a real -- it was a real eye-opener.
Rey: What do you mean?
Sharon: Well, I know that you and I have been going through a tough time. But all of our tensions just disappeared when I saw how sick you were. It was a real slap in the face, me realizing how much we have to lose.
Rey: I want to make one thing clear. I'm not going anywhere. You're clearly someone
"The young and the restless"
"The young and the restless"
Devon: You're about to lecture me on consequences?
Nate: That's funny. I thought you were about to lecture me about the same thing.
Devon: I wasn't about to do anything. I was trying to leave. Alright? I know I've made mistakes in life and I've hurt people. I don't need to be judged by you for it.
Nate: That wasn't my intention. I was just saying both action and inaction can have unexpected consequences.
Devon: Yeah. Okay. You're right. Are you talking about elena right now or something? 'Cause I know you guys broke things off.
Nate: Doesn't shock me she ran straight to you.
Devon: Yeah, no, it shouldn't shock you.
Nate: I made my choice, and she's made hers. I hope everyone lives happily ever after. Okay, look, um... I know moses is, uh, coming to town soon. Are you all set up for him? I'm willing to help out with whatever you need.
Devon: Yeah, no, I'm all set up for him. He's very excited to intern at the clinic with you. So, if you can take care of that side of things, I'll handle everything else.
Nate: We're gonna work him hard. But I'll have his back there.
Devon: Thank you for that.
Nate: [ Sighs ]
[ Cellphone ringing ]
Faith: Hey. How's rey?
Sharon: Well, listen for yourself.
Rey: Hey, faith. I'm feeling better. Counting the seconds until I can get out of here.
Sharon: Doesn't he sound great?
Faith: Yeah. Just like his usual self.
Sharon: Hey, I want to know how you're doing. Do you have any symptoms, any fatigue, nausea?
Faith: No. Why? What's wrong?
Sharon: Well, the toxins that are in rey's system could be affecting us, too, so we need to be tested today, just to be on the safe side.
Faith: Yeah, yeah, just tell me when and where. I don't want that poison anywhere near me.
Sharon: Okay, well, the house is being tested right now, so tell your dad not to bring you home just yet.
Faith: Okay. Um...mom, there's something else. I was talking to dad, and i think maybe I'm ready.
Sharon: Ready for what?
Faith: To try out therapy, like you guys wanted.
Sharon: [ Exhales sharply ] Faith, that is so brave. You know, that's a very mature and grown-up decision. Oh, um, dr. Hastings is here now, so I have to go, but I will call you later. Love you.
Faith: Okay. Love you too. Bye.
Sharon: What is it?
Nate: I've got some troubling news. Is rey gonna be alright? There's no permanent damage, right?
Nate: Oh, rey's great. The troubling part is about how much poison was found in your house...and where.

Faith: [ Sighs ] Phyllis? Where's my dad?
Phyllis: Oh, he needed to make a call. He's in my office. How are you doing?
Faith: I'm good.
Phyllis: Good. That's great news about rey, right?
Faith: Yeah. Yeah. Mom's really happy.
Phyllis: Yeah. I'm sure.
Faith: Um, so, you play a lot of video games, right?
Phyllis: Well, I mean, I don't know if I play a lot. Your dad and I -- you know, we play some video games.
Faith: Have you ever played a game called "ninja squirrels"?
Phyllis: Uh, I've heard of that, but I've never played it. I mean, uh, your dad and I -- we play, you know, more like alien invaders and laser guns and...
Faith: Yeah. Okay. I was just looking for some advice on how to play against someone.
Phyllis: Oh! Okay. Well, I can give you advice. I mean, definitely it's really strong eye-hand coordination, and you want to stay three steps ahead of your opponent all the time.
Faith: Like chess.
Phyllis: Yeah. Like chess.
Faith: So, when you and my dad were first getting to know each other, did you play video games on, like, dates?
Phyllis: On dates? Um...yeah. Yeah. We did that. You know, um... the graphics were completely different then, but, um, yeah, it's sort of our love language.
Faith: Uh, how, um... never mind.
Phyllis: No, no. Tell me. What? I like talking to you.
Faith: Well, I was just wondering -- how does it feel to fall in love?
Phyllis: Oh. Um...okay. Well, falling in love at your age -- it's, um, a lot of messy emotions, complex emotions. Um... uh, but I remember, uh, I was in love with a boy in my second period english class when I was 14. And I would write his name on my notebook over and over and over again. And sometimes we'd lock eyes, and I remember, like, my stomach was filled with butterflies, but at the same time I had a stomach ache. I mean, it was magical and terrifying all at the same time.
Elena: How are those tamales coming along?
Lola: They're almost ready. And I also wanted to make him ropa vieja.
Elena: You know, I'm not sure if he's gonna be ready to eat all of that immediately.
Lola: Oh, no, no. You don't know my brother. I mean, you put a tamale within arm's reach, and he's just gonna devour it.
Elena: Well, good. I guess having an appetite like that will help with his recovery. Oh, I checked in with nate. Your brother seems to be progressing nicely.
Lola: Great. What a relief. That's exactly what I wanted to hear. Um, but I do have a bone to pick with you. Earlier, you said that nate was in charge.
Elena: He is.
Lola: Yeah, but you downplayed the role in figuring out what happened to rey. Like, you played a huge part in saving his life.
Elena: Well, I mean, nate and I worked as a team, and nate's the primary physician on the case, so he deserves most of the credit. And, frankly, he deserves credit for even speaking to me.
Lola: Is it weird for you, working with him?
Elena: Yeah. But, I mean, everything's weird these days. I just still can't believe i blew it with two phenomenal guys. And I can't blame either of them.
Lola: Well, you know what i think?
Elena: I feel like you're gonna tell me either way.
Lola: Yeah, no, I am gonna tell you either way. You just need to move on.
Elena: Yeah. I don't disagree. I think I'll be ready to get out there in a few months.
Lola: [ Laughs ] That is way too slow. I mean, we need to get the ball rolling right now.
Elena: Oh, no.
Lola: Oh, yes! Another girls' night out. Do you remember how much fun that was?
Elena: Yes, I do. It was fun. But, no, I'm not ready.
Lola: No, you indeed are ready. I mean, after these tough couple of weeks that you've had, we need to blow off some steam.
Elena: [ Sighs ]
Lola: It's happening.
Elena: [ Chuckles ]
[ Knock on door ]
Devon: Hey --
Amanda: Not now, devon.
Devon: Hang on, amanda. Hang on. Hang on. I know you're angry.
Amanda: Oh, really? How could you tell?
Devon: You feel betrayed. I understand that.
Amanda: You understand? You understand being cheated on by two different men with the same woman? Because that is what happened to me.
Devon: I'm not trying to erase what I did, okay? And I am truly, truly sorry to hurt you like that. I wish I could take it back. But the only thing I can do is to try and make things right. Can you just hear me out? My plaque psoriasis...
Faith: But if you had to give advice to your teenage self, what would it be?
Phyllis: Um, oh.
[ Chuckles ] Uh...it would be, "don't give your heart away to the cutest boy in your english class."
[ Both laugh ] I mean, we laugh, but I do have words of wisdom for you.
Faith: Okay. What's that?
Phyllis: Never lose to a boy at a video game on purpose.
Phyllis: Yeah. Never do that. A lot of girls will do something like that. They'll lessen themselves so the boy can feel better. Just beat him.
Faith: [ Chuckles ]
Phyllis: Really. He'll respect you, and you'll feel good about yourself.
Nick: What's going on?
Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] We're just talking -- girl talk.
Nick: Yeah? What about?
Faith: I got to check my phone.
Nick: What'd I miss?
Phyllis: Um, well, it's vague, but I think faith is interested in a boy.
Nick: Aw, man.
[ Sighs ]
Devon: Amanda, listen. I'm not even asking you to forgive me, alright? I just want you to give me a second so you can hear what i have to say. And if you don't like it, tell me to go to hell.
Amanda: Okay. Fine. I'll listen, but not now. My mother is on her way over here, and she made it sound pretty urgent.
Devon: Is something wrong?
Amanda: I don't know. I can't do this right now.
Naya: Oh. I hope I'm not interrupting.
Amanda: No, no, not at all. He's leaving. Come on in.
Devon: Hi. I'll call you, okay? Excuse me.
[ Door closes ]
Amanda: I'm sorry about that. Um, so, what's going on? You sounded pretty upset on the phone.
Naya: My family is in trouble. We need your help.
Mariah: Am I showing yet? Do I look pregnant?
[ Laughter ]
Tessa: Why don't you sit down and take it easy the rest of the day?
Nina: And when you're ready, your bed is waiting with some silky pajamas and a fluffy robe.
Nina: What? I said I had things to take care of today.
Mariah: [ Sighs ]
Abby: How do you feel?
Mariah: Well, I -- I don't want to jinx it, but I do feel different. I feel great, kind of like we might have just created a life.
Abby: [ Chuckles ]
Mariah: But I -- I know that we're not gonna be able to officially find out until I go back in nine days, they draw my blood, and we find out if I'm pregnant.
Abby: Fingers crossed. But this is gonna be the longest nine days of my life.
[ Laughter ]
Nate: The inspectors found an alarming amount of thallium in your house.
Sharon: What? Where was it?
Nate: That's the most concerning part. It wasn't just in one place. It was found in body wash, hair gel, shaving cream.
Sharon: Well, if that's the case, then I was probably poisoned, too. I don't have any symptoms.
Nate: The toxin was only found in the men's version of those products.
Sharon: That doesn't make any sense.
Rey: No, it makes perfect sense. This was no accident. I was a target. Someone poisoned me. Sauce- who made the sauce?
