Jack: That is not a happy expression.

Summer: Uh, yeah. Can't really fake smiling anymore.

Jack: You're dealing with a lot.

Summer: You know, I'm happy for kyle. Like really -- I really am. You know, how could I not be? When I see him, he's so enthralled with his child. You know, I saw them at the park earlier today, and harrison called kyle daddy. Should've seen the look on kyle's face. I mean, just lit him up. Just pure joy. Kind of took my breath away, just, you know, thinking about all these big changes in our lives -- they're just happening so fast. And then tara called them over with ice cream, and harrison and kyle just ran over to join her. They really did look like a perfect little family.

Jack: That had to be rough.

Summer: Yeah. Yeah, I'm not gonna lie, it kind of was a shock.

[ Sniffles ] But, um, no, I pulled myself together and I decided that I am just -- I'm gonna embrace it. Gonna embrace it because I don't really have any other options. It's either that or lose kyle, and frankly, I'm not gonna do that.

Jack: Frankly, I'm relieved to hear that you still want to build a future with my son.

Summer: Yeah, of course I do. Why wouldn't -- did you talk to my dad about his suggestion to postpone our wedding?

Jack: The subject came up.

Summer: Well, just so you know, kyle and I did talk and, um, we're not gonna pull out the calendars just yet and make any concrete plans -- just for now, you know, until we see how this whole thing shakes out. But I absolutely do want a future with him. I really do. You know, that's never gonna change. I believe that we're meant to be together.

Kyle: If you need to communicate with tara, have your lawyer call hers. In fact, let's make that a policy from now on.

Ashland: Look, I have no desire for this to become adversarial. I don't want to fight, tara. I just want to talk.

Victor: Well, good morning.

Nikki: [ Gasps ] How did you know where to find me?

Victor: I know that you always carve out a special time for katherine. Did you go see her plaque?

Nikki: I have just come from there. The stargazer lilies I planted last year are getting ready to bloom.

Victor: Speaking of flowers, 12 apricot roses were delivered to the house. And then I have another special delivery.

Amanda: When I spoke to victor, he made it sound like richard only knew about one child.

Devon: And richard's P.I. Confirmed that?

Amanda: Yeah. She said that he was looking for his baby, who was sent to live with a family in foster care.

Devon: And that would have been you.

Amanda: My father quit his job. He made looking for me the focus of his life. He was trying to find me when he was killed, and now all I am left with is "why?" For people who could use a lift

Amanda: This gives me a new perspective. My whole life seems different now.

Devon: How does it seem different?

Amanda: Well, I never, um... belonged to anyone. Other kids had families, and i had guardians. Whenever I heard that term "ward of the state," it just made me want to run and hide. I buried those feelings. But now, knowing that my father rearranged his entire life to find me...

Devon: What else did the investigator that richard hired tell you?

Amanda: Um...she told me that he had told her everything that he could about naya, and she used that information to -- to track down my foster parents' contact. He could've called. He could've showed up at their doorstep. He could've petitioned the courts for custody, but then he...

Devon: I know. I'm sure that was devastating to hear.

Amanda: When she told me that, part of me just shattered into a million pieces and blew off into the wind. What makes it even worse is just knowing how close he got.

Jack: You and kyle have faced so many obstacles, things that would finish off most couples. But one by one, you've overcome every one of them together. I've watched it. And now you're considering how harrison can fit in to your lives. That's an obstacle. My betting money is on you two. I've watched it. As your love has endured and grown, the two of you have grown. And I'm convinced that one day, when the time is right, kyle is going to have another child, and you, my dear, have everything it takes to be an amazing mother.

Summer: [ Sniffles ] That's definitely something that we've talked about. Having kids. It just always seemed so far down the road, you know? And I think just one of the reasons why it's just taking me some time to wrap my head around all of this is because when i look at kyle, it just -- it all comes so easy to him. Going from the idea of having a biological son with tara that lives in new york to becoming a daddy overnight, I mean, it just -- it looked like the most natural thing in the world to him.

Jack: I know what that feels like. Suddenly, I'm grandpa to a kid i just met. Caught me a little short, until I met him. And there was that unmistakable bond.

Summer: Well, I guess you'll be happy to know that tara's decided to stay in genoa city, then.

Jack: Actually, I wasn't aware she'd made that decision. And though I know it complicates your life, yeah, it...makes me happy that she's sticking around.

Summer: Yeah, you'll get to spend more time with harrison now.

Jack: Summer, it is such a gift to watch a child grow up. I missed so many important moments in kyle's life. And selfishly, I don't want to lose those years in harrison's life. And hopefully you'll start to feel the same way, too. Look, you've already made the biggest step. You're already committed. I have it on very good authority kids have a way of grabbing ahold of your heart.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Kyle: I have first-hand knowledge of how you operate when you feel aggrieved, when you only suspected tara and i might have been involved.

Ashland: This is still a private matter between tara and me. You have no business interfering.

Kyle: When you show up at my family's front door, it makes it --

Tara: Kyle, it's okay. I'll listen to what he has to say. But not here. Would you look after harrison while we go and talk?

Kyle: I'd be happy to.

[ Sighs ]

Nikki: I thought we were celebrating at the ranch tonight.

Victor: That's why I decided to surprise you now.

Nikki: You always manage to outdo yourself.

Victor: Well, hopefully, i succeeded once again. Why don't you open it?

Nikki: Oh. It's prokofiev's biography.

Victor: Yes.

Nikki: Darling, I already have this.

Victor: I know. It's your copy.

Nikki: Alright, now I know there's more to this.

Victor: You do.

Nikki: It's very unlike you to forget how many times I've read this book.

Victor: Why don't you open it?

Nikki: Ooh, two tickets to a concert.

[ Gasps ] In florence.

[ Chuckles ]

Victor: We're gonna see leslie brooks perform prokofiev's piano concerto number 3, and I think that's one of your favorites, right?

Nikki: It's only his masterpiece. Victor, I couldn't be more thrilled. What a wonderful gift.

Victor: There's more inside.

Jack: Thanks.

Summer: Thank you for the talk, jack. It really, really helped.

Jack: You have had a very special place in my heart since the day you were born.

Summer: Thank you.

Sally: Jack. It's good to see you.

Jack: Have a good afternoon.

Summer: Well, it looks like you realize just how badly you blew it.

Sally: I don't need a reminder of just how massively i screwed up with jack. Though it's clear how much enjoyment you get from seeing him blow me off. Must be a nice break from everything else that you're going through.

Summer: Okay, whatever, sally.

Sally: Do me a favor, though, and please refrain from dropping those not-so-subtle hints in front of lauren about the fashion house gig.

Summer: I just thought that you'd want her to know that you're looking for another job.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] It is still the longest of long shots is my point. I mean, it is a coveted position at a big, important fashion house. There must be a flock of people in the industry lined up just doing whatever it takes to get it. People with a lot more clout and connections than I have.

Summer: Mm. Well, don't underestimate yourself.

Sally: Lauren's been good to me, and she was really upset with both of us for going at each other the way that we did, so I really don't want to let her down, okay? So I'd appreciate you not tanking my reputation for no reason. I mean, [Scoffs] Not that i wouldn't die to get this gig. I mean, I -- I would do just about anything to make it happen.

Summer: So, what are you really up to now, sally?

Devon: Now that you know richard's real intentions, how does that change or affect your approach to sutton's case?

Amanda: Well, it doesn't change my fundamental strategy.

Devon: What are you talking about? How does it not change it, knowing that richard wasn't meeting with victor about any payoffs being made to sutton's campaign or any blackmail?

Amanda: Uh, well, imani spoke to sutton about the information that we discovered, and he was adamant that he didn't want to go down this road. He doesn't want naya to be put on the stand and grilled in open court. He doesn't want her history to become the spotlight, so the victor angle is still my best option.

Devon: That's your b-- you're gonna have to explain that to me.

Amanda: Well, we know what he spoke to victor about, but richard potentially still could have been blackmailing some other executive at newman, and this other party may have assumed that he was talking to victor about the bribery scheme and panicked, especially since richard had quit his job, he had hired a P.I.

Devon: Right, right, but that's all speculative.

Amanda: All I need to do is prove reasonable doubt -- that it is possible and it is plausible -- I still think I can do that.

Devon: Yeah, I'm sure you can do it, but why? Why do you need to do it when you have this new evidence? You get that sutton stepping in and interfering like this and making your job more difficult than it needs to be is a problem, right?


Ashland: I'm not here to fight.

Tara: That's the last thing I want, and the last thing harrison needs.

Ashland: I agree.

Tara: Good.

Ashland: I'm going to ask you a simple question, and I would like an honest answer, please. Are you in love with kyle abbott?

Kyle: Oh, good, you got one. Keep it up! So what do you think? Do the cookies in the game taste as good as mrs. Martinez's?

Harrison: No.

Kyle: No. Hers are the best, aren't they? Yeah. Between all the cookies you've had since you came here and the ice cream and the park, you're really lucking out in the dessert department.

Harrison: Are mommy and father mad at each other?

Tara: No, ashland, kyle and i don't have a romantic relationship.

Ashland: During that summer in the hamptons, were you in love with kyle then?

Tara: When you and I were dating, you were so loving, so attentive. You made me feel like I was the most important person in the world to you. After the wedding, that all changed. You were so focused on work. I felt so alone. Lonely, isolated. Like I was just an accessory to you.

Ashland: How can you say that? I gave you everything.

Tara: Except yourself. I had the most gorgeous clothes, the biggest house, the fanciest car, but underneath it all, i was just empty. I know that this is hard for you to hear. It's hard for me to admit, but if you really want to know...

Ashland: I do.

Tara: It was july. The party season. You were away. And I was entertaining a lot, just to have people around. I played the role -- the perfect hostess. Kyle saw through it. He understood. It had been so long since someone treated me like that, talked to me like I mattered. I'm not proud of what I did.

Ashland: What you shouldn't be proud of is letting me live a lie and allowing me to fall in love with a child that wasn't mine.

Kyle: Sometimes people that like each other can still get mad, like maybe you and a friend on the playground. Has that ever happened? Yeah? Well, that can happen to grown-ups, too. Even parents. That's why your mom and your father went to talk. And even if they're mad at each other, even if it's the type of mad that takes a long time to get over, they're still gonna love you, harrison. Hey, they're always going to love you, okay?

Tara: Harrison is the child you raised. He loves you. I am trying so hard to keep him from being hurt. I've apologized. I told you that I would stay and make it work. You're the one who refuses to even try.

Ashland: [ Sighs ] I'm gonna make you a deal. And it's the only one I'm going to make, and it's the only time that I'm going to offer it.

Devon: Listen, when you took this case on, you were all about trying to be objective and just treating sutton like he was a normal client, right?

Amanda: I still do.

Devon: Doesn't seem like you are. I think it's becoming clear that it's impossible for you to do that, like it would be for anybody in your situation. You're defending your grandfather who's accused of murdering your dad, and your mom and your sister are wrapped up in the whole thing. This is -- this is never gonna be just a normal case for you.

Amanda: Well --

Devon: It's as personal as it gets.

Amanda: I promise you, I am dealing with sutton as I would deal with any other client.

Devon: Okay. The only reason I say any of this, amanda, is 'cause I don't want to see you get backed into a corner 'cause you feel like you need to prove yourself to sutton or your newfound family.

Amanda: Do you really think that that's the reason why i agreed to take this case?

Devon: It's not -- I think that you took the case because you generally wanted to know more about who you came from, but when family's involved, things get messy. And like we've talked about before, things, you know, it can make it emotionally difficult.

[ Knock on door ]

Amanda: Hi, come on in. We can get started as soon as you're ready. Hi.

Imani: Hi.

Devon: Hello.

Naya: First, there's a personal matter we need to discuss. My nunormal?

"The young and the restless"

will continue.

Imani: If we're interrupting something, just...

Amanda: No, no. Not at all.

Devon: Yeah, I'll leave you guys to your meeting, so...

Amanda: Um...I will talk to you later.

Devon: Okay.

Amanda: Okay. Okay, so, um, what would you like to talk about?

Naya: I owe you an apology, amanda. I'm sorry things got so tense between us the last time we spoke. It was hard for me to learn that richard had found out about the pregnancy and equally hard to hear you ask if I'd been lying to you, withholding information.

Naya: Which was unfair because --

Naya: I understand why you had to know if I'd had further contact. It's your job to ask the tough questions. I never told richard that I was carrying his child, and I can't imagine who would have. I mean, perhaps it was rose, having second thoughts about the situation.

Amanda: No, rose was not involved in any way. Richard only knew about one child -- me. The P.I. Was very clear about that. Richard also told her that you were the mother and that he'd tried and failed to contact you.

Naya: That much is true. I did avoid him. I knew opening that opening that door again would be a mistake.

Amanda: Well, she was able to use your information to track down my foster family. My father came that close to finding me.

Naya: It breaks my heart to hear that he learned so much, and yet he wasn't able to meet you before he was killed. But that doesn't change the here and now. My father -- your grandfather -- is in the fight of his life. The ames family is real and alive and here for you. We need to be your focus now, amanda.

Amanda: You're right. Dwelling on the past, what would have been, it's distracting me from the work that needs to be done.

Sally: [ Scoffs ] Why do you think I'm up to anything?

Summer: Come on, sally. I just want to know what game you're playing this time.

Sally: I'm just trying to move on with my life, and hopefully, actually get someplace in my career. I'm not gonna apologize for that, summer, for having dreams, which I actually have to work for. Nothing's going to be handed to me.

Summer: Oh, no, I have no doubt that you are very hard at work. For instance, um, you know, I've actually been wondering how ashland locke found out that tara and harrison were staying at jack's, and that just -- i mean, it kind of seems like something that you would do to just continue to stir up trouble.

Sally: Well, that's a crappy thing to say.

Summer: Come on, sally. Do not pretend that you wouldn't stoop down to that, not after you sent tara and her son to our engagement party. First, you use a child to blackmail kyle and me, but then you rat out his location -- I mean, that's just not cool.

Sally: Sounds like you just want to blame me for every bad thing that's happened.

Summer: No, just all the things that you're responsible for, that cause trouble for jack, kyle, and me.

Sally: Well, then you should be super happy that I'm working so hard to get this italian gig and leave town. And I pray it happens, if only because I am sick and tired of being your punching bag for when life doesn't go your way.

Kyle: Hey. Harrison and I have been playing some games. I read him a story.

Jack: That sounds like fun. Can you -- can you smell that? Smell it. I think you and I should go in the kitchen and see what mrs. Martinez has going on in there. Come on, let's follow our noses. Here we go!

Kyle: [ Sighs ] You okay?

Tara: I'm fine. Ash was calm and quite civilized. He wants to make a deal with me.

Kyle: Tara, what did he offer you?

Tara: Ashland says he'll agree to shared custody on one condition -- that you never be allowed to see your son or be a part of his life in any way. If you have obstructive sleep apnea and you're often tired during the day, you could be missing out on amazing things.

Nikki: Mmm. These are heavenly.

Victor: Aren't they?

Nikki: Where are on earth did you find them?

Victor: Well, I had them flown in from italy.

Nikki: [ Laughs ] Of course you did. Will you try one? I want to see the rapture on your face.

Victor: Oh, that is so tempting, my sweet love, but let's wait till afterwards, okay?

Nikki: Okay.

Victor: But if you really want to make me happy, you'll take another look at that box.

Nikki: Ohh. What a beautiful stallion.

Victor: His name is concerto. I thought I would stick with a music theme, you know?

Nikki: [ Laughs ]

Victor: And he's waiting for you in the stables.

Nikki: Oh, my god. Oh, victor, you have outdone yourself.

Victor: Well, you wanted to meet victor newman. He's -- [ Chuckles ] He's right here in this room now.

Nikki: Where?

Victor: I am victor newman.

Nikki: You are victor newman.

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: You wouldn't want to kiss me just once, would you?

Victor: No. I am definitely not going to kiss you now.

Nikki: Even if I say "s'il vous plait."

Victor: Very well.

[ Clears throat ] There. Satisfied now?

Nikki: Well, if that's what you call a kiss, I think I can teach you a few things, too, mr. Newman.

Victor: [ Chuckles ]

Nikki: After everything you've done, everything you're doing to make things perfect...

Victor: [ Chuckles ]

Nikki: ...There's one thing you haven't said.

Victor: What's that?

Nikki: You haven't told me that you love me.

Victor: You know, I probably won't tell you often enough, 'cause that's my nature. I do love you. Nothing, no one will ever keep us apart.

Nikki: God, I love you as I've never loved anyone. Yes! Yes, I want nothing more in this world than to be mrs. Victor newman again. Yes. [ Chuckles ]

Victor: You know, sometimes, when we're in each other's arms, I really feel as if our souls intertwined and you and I have become one.

Nikki: I do, too.

Victor: My beauty.

Nikki: Ohh, victor. Why can't we stay like this forever?

Jack: This is outrageous. And it's a ploy. Ashland is acting like he has some guarantee that he'll get full custody in court. There's no guarantee.

Tara: I don't know what to believe anymore. Ash has so many friends that are judges.

Jack: He's trying to convince you you have no other options. You do. Look, harrison is an abbott. The abbotts will stand by him, and believe me, we have enough power and clout to stand up to the likes of ashland.

Tara: I need to go call my attorney. He only gave me 24 hours to make up my mind.

Kyle: Whoa, whoa, wait. You're considering this? Cutting me out of harrison's life?

Tara: I don't know what else to think. My attorney already has concerns. Harrison is a child of adultery. Ashland has been a constant in his life, and I can't deny that he's been a wonderful father. Meanwhile, you have known about harrison for months, and you never made a move to prove that you were his biological father until I asked you to.

Kyle: Biological. I want to be so much more to him, and you know that's true.

Tara: You're a good man and you care about that little boy, but you've actually only known him for a few days. Ashland has been with him and worried about him and cared for him.

Kyle: While his main priority was business. How many times have you told me that?

Tara: Yes, he travels for work, but he's still a loving father. And -- and he and harrison adore each other. I have to be smart. Handle things carefully. That's why I need to talk to my lawyer, because I cannot lose my son. I won'T. I need to go be with harrison.

Jack: Hey, hey, hey. He gave her a good scare. Give her some time to calm down. Eventually, she'll see that --

Kyle: Yeah.

Jack: Kyle.

[ Sighs ]

Devon: Well, you're the manager, so it's your job to tell your client how the contract works. Yeah, that's the joys of working with a musician. Okay. Let's talk later. Bye-bye.

Naya: Uh, excuse me, devon?

Devon: Hi.

Naya: Uh, do you have a minute?

Devon: Sure, I do. What's -- what's going on?

Naya: Um...I don't know how close you are with amanda -- although you do seem to spend a lot of time with her.

Devon: Yeah, we're -- we're good friends.

Naya: That explains why she's confided in you about our family.

Devon: Well, so you know, anything that she shared with me just stays between the two of us.

Naya: Didn't take me long to see what a smart, strong person she is, with the kind of toughness that explains why she's been such a successful attorney. It's why I asked her to defend my father against these serious charges. It's why I was so confident in my decision. But now some -- some very unsettling information has come to light, stirred up some emotions that I think could be overwhelming. In short, I'm worried about amanda.

Devon: Well, if I'm being honest, I'm -- I'm worried about what this entire situation is doing to her, as well. In fact, I think it may be a mistake that she even took the case.

[ Knock on door ]

Amanda: [ Sighs ] Uh...hey. Um...why did you come back here?

Imani: I wanted to let you know that I'm sorry for what you're going through. I can't imagine how you must feel having learned all this about richard.

Amanda: Yeah, no, I'M... I'm fine. Just it's been a trying day.

Imani: I also thought that you should know I've taken a room here, so I'll be close by while we're preparing for trial.

Amanda: Wow, that's a big change for you.

Imani: [ Sighs ]

Amanda: Moving away from naya and sutton.

Imani: It's only temporary. It'll make it much easier for us to work together, and hopefully give me a better chance of earning your trust. Which I would very much like to do. We're for those who love to discover.

Nikki: I have lived the most incredible life.

Victor: Come home with me. There's more to come, you know.

Nikki: Oh, victor, more surprises?

Victor: Sempre, amore mio.

Nikki: Well, we do have a trip to plan.

Victor: I adore you, my baby.

Nikki: I love you so much.

Sally: How am I supposed to be patient when my life is falling apart piece by piece, and there's summer enjoying every second of it?

Shirley: Okay, it sounds like things are a little rougher than I realized.

Sally: I came to genoa city to leave my past behind, and i was doing it. I was building an amazing relationship with an incredible man.

Shirley: Mm, jack abbott.

Sally: And not just because he had money or he could do something for my career, but of course, that is what everyone here thinks of me -- the local royalty. They never had to scrap and fight for anything. It just makes me sick.

Shirley: Uh-huh, I know the type.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Shirley: Those people that spend their time trying to keep you down. All the while, they're up on their lofty perch.

Sally: Exactly. Some days, I feel so beaten down, I don't even know what to do.

Shirley: They expect you to slink away with your tail between your legs. But don't do it, sally girl. Just remember that you are a spectra. You're just as talented and capable as those pretenders in the boonies.

[ Chuckles ] And a heck of a lot tougher. You learned the ropes in los angeles, so the only thing that summer has that you don't is confidence. So now you need to dig down deep inside yourself and get yourself some, and then turn this sucker around.

Sally: I am going to take every word of your brilliant advice and I am going to win this thing, starting today.

Shirley: Ha-ha, that's my girl.

Sally: I got to get summer to italy and out of my way, and if ashland locke is not gonna help me, then I have to go to plan "B."

Summer: Hey. Whoa, what happened?

Kyle: Ashland offered tara a compromise, a way for them to share custody of harrison.

Summer: Okay, well, that's a good thing, right?

Kyle: There's a catch. She would have to cut me out of his life completely.

Summer: What?!

Kyle: I would never get to see my son again. No contact of any kind. I'd miss out on his whole life, everything. Now that I've met harrison and he knows I'm his dad, I know there's no way I can do that.

Next week on

"the young and the restless"...

Kyle: You're a good mother. Any judge will see that.

Tara: But ash is going to bring out the big guns to prove I'm not. He might have the ammunition to do it, too.

Billy: I ran into your father. He's got something cooking up, there's no doubt about it. But I have no intention of letting my guard down.

Rey: You have an issue with me?

Adam: Yeah, a big one. I don't like what you're doing with chelsea.
