Dynasty (2017) s02e15 Episode Script

Motherly Overprotectiveness

1 Previously on Dynasty FALLON: Atlantix FC is all about community.
- Who killed my child? - I'm sorry for you and your wife, but I had nothing to do with it.
- Everything's gonna be okay.
- Steven is in Paris.
I just came here to get away, and I'm already feeling much better thanks to my friend George.
I don't know what's going on.
He's real, isn't he? I think I want to talk to someone.
- FALLON: We're gonna get you help.
- All this started to see firsthand the life that I've been denied, and now I'm gonna claim it.
Hank, if you're seeing this, please call me.
We will get through this together.
All I wanted was to make him stop crying! GEORGE: Hey, hey, hey.
- ALEXIS: until I heard the evidence.
- - Fingerprints - Pain's pretty bad today? Mom, no, no, no.
Look, I think y-you've had enough pills.
Why-why don't you try going to sleep.
No, don't touch that.
- I-I can't be alone.
You-you can't leave.
- No Mom, Mom, it's okay, it's okay.
- You can't leave.
- It's okay.
- I'm here.
- You're my baby.
He's a fake.
That's not Adam.
Mom, what're you talking about? He's not their real son, Mikey.
REPORTER (on TV): You mean Cristal Flores? - ALEXIS: Who is she really? - You are.
(laughs softly) Blake.
I'm fine.
Had, uh, insomnia's best friend here to keep me company.
- Were you up all night again? - Half the night.
You should've woken me.
I did everything I could to get back to sleep, my mind just kept playing, oh, what I did that night, over and over and over.
Then it went to a really dark place of the monster you must think I am.
No.
You know I don't think that.
(knocking on door) Knock, knock, Daddy.
It is after 8:00, which is normally lunchtime for you, but you are, uh, sleeping in and drinking in again, which would be cute in a pre-newlywed-y sort of way if it weren't worrying the hell out of me.
Okay, I am gonna leave you two alone.
There's nothing to worry about.
I'm just having trouble sleeping because I've got business things - on my mind.
- Oh, please.
If you truly were busy with business, then you wouldn't be wearing silk pajamas past sunrise.
Don't act brave for me, Daddy.
You have been through a lot lately, with the baby and Mark Jennings, so why don't you just allow yourself to feel your "mourning sickness" and let me take care of you in the meantime.
That was, uh, "mourning" with a "U," in case it went over your - I just want to help, Dad.
- By insulting me in my bedroom? I mean, like you always say, tragedy brings us closer together.
- For a minute.
- And in this minute, I am here for you, okay? Just on call 24/7, conferring with Anders about household management, I'll even keep Alexis at bay until you're back on top, - and out of your jammies.
- You are so transparent.
That's an interesting word for thoughtful.
I know why you're so gung ho to help.
You feel guilty that you were away visiting Steven in Paraguay while Cristal and I were taking care of everything here in the house.
Well, there's no need to.
Everything is absolutely fine.
Mm So? Did you tell him about Steven? Of course I didn't.
With everything that's going on, he doesn't need to hear that his son has gone insane and checked himself into a mental institution.
- Yes, he does.
- No, he doesn't.
We all remember his meltdown after First Generation Cristal died.
Okay, we can't risk having him go back to Dark Blake.
Fallon, I'm not a good liar, okay? You know it.
I know it.
The gazillions of people I've lied to know it.
We promised Steven that we would keep it a secret, that that is what is best for him.
And now we need to do what's best for Blake.
And I'm also doing what's best for you.
- By torturing me? - No, by feeding you.
I have hired VIP catering of all the best comfort foods in Atlanta because I know if I want to keep your mouth shut, I've got to keep it full.
But for now you and I will not be responsible for bringing any more grief into this house.
I need to shelter my dad.
No more drama.
Okay? What catering? Giving back to the community was never really on my radar.
But after a recent epiphany, I bought the land to turn it into this center for learning and arts, designed specifically to help low-income families, kids like I was once.
We all know they're not given enough opportunities to thrive.
We are failing them.
So, here's an opportunity for us to do something about it.
Rezoning 70 acres in Adams Park is an ambitious proposal, Mr.
Colby.
You approve projects like this all the time in different parts of the city.
Look, I am fully funding this one and not taking a penny of profit.
All I need, all the community needs, is your approval when you vote tomorrow so we can start changing lives.
Everybody wins here.
Thank you, Mr.
Colby.
We vote tomorrow at 6:00 p.
m.
Until then, - we are adjourned.
- WOMAN: Nice job, Mr.
Colby.
Good luck tomorrow.
Impressive presentation, man.
Colby Music and Arts Center.
It's not about me.
I'm not Blake trumpeting his Carrington Family Foundation.
My name isn't even going on this 'cause I don't want anyone feeling like they owe me anything.
That's how Blake made me feel my whole life.
- It's a beautiful thing, man.
- Look, I know we've had our issues, but, uh, I'm a positive man now, okay? So I don't need you showing up here and reminding me of being betrayed.
That's not what I'm here to do.
Trust me.
I want things to be good between us.
Okay.
So, why are you here? I'm here to make FC Atlantix your first official sponsor.
This is about giving the kids music and arts, Mike.
Not slapping some corporate logo on their backs.
I thought it was about changing lives.
That's what sports can do.
It did it for me.
Kept me off the streets and out of trouble.
Gave me goals and focus.
We'll have the team mentor the kids in after-school sports.
It's great for the community.
Great PR for the organization, and, like you said, everybody wins here.
You know I'm a silent partner in the Atlantix, right? It's perfect synergy.
We join programs.
Make the world a better place.
I'm already tied to Blake on one business, and I don't want him anywhere near this one.
I don't need you or him to make the world a better place.
What are you doing? Learning about my real family.
Well, you-you look like a stalker.
Is that better or worse than a kidnapper? It was my boyfriend who kidnapped you.
He was a monster.
And he sure wasn't gonna put up with a crying baby, so I took you, and I ran away.
I saved you from being killed.
You could've returned me to the Carringtons at any point.
I could've been sent to prison.
- I was scared.
- Shut up! You stole my life, the life I was owed.
- And-and a father.
- No.
It's not like that.
I did everything because I love you.
Call it plain motherly overprotectiveness.
No.
No, you're a liar.
If you loved me, you wouldn't have lied to me my whole life.
You're the monster.
Don't you talk to me like that.
I am your mother, Mikey.
Don't call me that! I am not Mikey! - And you are not my mother! - (gasps) Oh! (indistinct chatter) Thank you.
Oh, you must be Sam's sushi table.
I know you charge by the hour, but the main thing to know about Sam is that he eats in record time, so I'm thinking a flat fee might be the best way to handle this.
I'm sorry, I'm not Sam's sushi table, if that's a thing.
- Then who are you? - I'm Adam.
Hmm.
So, Adam, you have a last name? Carrington.
I'm your brother.
Ugh.
Anders? Security? Do we even have security anymore? You don't need to call security.
I just want to see Blake, my father.
Oh, we have another lunatic here, do we? FALLON: Look, I swear, any other day, we would be very open to have you scam us.
But my dad is a mess, and he does not need any more stress right now.
So maybe you can, I don't know, come back in a month, and we can go from there? I'm not scamming you.
And I'm not leaving.
- I've come a long way.
- Okay, I asked you politely.
- Just listen to me.
Give me five minutes.
- But we do have a gun room.
- I can explain everything.
- No, no, no.
I'm not gonna give you five minutes.
- Anders, please? Dad? - BLAKE: Anders, what's going on? What on earth is happening? FALLON: This Mr.
Ripley here claims that he is Adam.
But you're a year late, dude.
The Adam ship has sailed, docked and already set fire to the loft.
Oh, my God, he has a gun.
FALLON: Or a rattle.
Where did you get that? From the woman who told me that she was my mother.
But now I know I'm your son.
Your real son.
So much for no more drama.
It was the most heartbreaking moment of my life, learning that I wasn't her real son.
Learning that my life was a lie, and learning that my name was Adam Carrington, not Mikey Harrison.
FALLON: And this is the part where you learn I think you're full of it.
I'm having the strangest déjà vu.
I don't understand.
What about Hank? Oh, right.
That's why.
Hank is the real Adam.
You're just too late.
And you have ten fingers.
My mother also told me about that, how the kidnappers took a finger from the morgue and sent it to you, claiming it was mine.
It wasn't.
I'm sorry, but Hank was a fraud, and it's one of the reasons I came, to tell you.
So, you decided to sit on your ass for four months instead of warning us? I would've come sooner, but I didn't want my mother to get arrested.
But then she passed away.
Yeah, I know that sounds crazy.
No, it doesn't.
Sounds noble.
Are you high? Okay, am I the only one that thinks that Hank's positive DNA test trumps this cliché Nicholas Sparks novel and an old tarnished baby rattle? This old baby rattle was my mother's, it was mine.
Guess what else was your mother's? DNA.
Fallon, I just feel it in my gut.
A father knows his son.
Really? What's Steven's favorite color? - Pink.
- No.
I think your gut feeling is you not wanting that creep Hank to be your spawn.
You heard everything he said.
The events of that night.
The case was handled privately.
How could he have gotten all that information? - How would Hank? - Hank didn't know half of it.
Which makes me think that he faked his DNA results.
Well, I don't know that that's possible.
- Is it? - I'm more than happy to take a DNA test.
In front of you, if that's what you need.
And I'm not looking for a payout or anything.
Yeah, you say that now.
In a week, you'll be drowning yourself in king crab and Gucci loafers.
- No offense.
- Offense taken.
I have a happy life.
And I plan on going back to it.
Dad, I think you need to rest.
- This is too much to handle for anyone.
- JENNINGS: I'm so sorry.
He's been through a lot lately.
Yeah, yeah, we we lost a baby.
And Hank, who I thought was my son, and Steven, who I also thought was my son, has run away to Paraguay to live.
SAM: Yes, he's, um he's been in Paraguay this whole time doing good for the communities and, uh, he's building wells and houses.
- Yeah.
Lot of good stuff.
- And more wells.
- He's such a giver.
- GEORGE: Paraguay, huh? Oh, that's, that's a shame.
I was really looking forward to meeting him.
All right, here's how this is gonna go.
I am gonna tell Anders to book you a room at a Motel S-Seven or Eight.
Or whatever, I don't care.
And then maybe, if the DNA test results are positive, we will move you to a Ritz.
But for now, I am perfectly fine being the only child.
You really shouldn't have come here, young man.
BLAKE: No.
Enough.
He's our son.
I can feel it in my heart.
But because I know you don't have a heart, we'll do a DNA test.
Isn't it incredible? You not going for the alcohol? Yes.
I don't need it.
I'm happy.
You don't think I'm jumping into this? I know it when I know it.
That's Adam.
That's my son.
These last days have been nothing short of a nightmare for us.
But I think this is what I needed to get my mind at ease.
What is it? Okay, that was about 30 seconds.
I don't think they have a chip for that.
Did you see this? "Pre-site approval request denied.
" - It means I can't build my stadium.
- I can read.
I know what it means.
- I'm sure you can call someone.
- That's only when there's other people in my way.
This time, I'm competing with Mother Nature and-and her "unsustainable resources that will damage the environment in the surrounding area.
" Blah, blah, blah.
I can't risk going through with this, not after the scandal in Clarke County.
There must be another place in Atlanta you can find.
I have one month to find another site in the area or they will cancel my bid and I will lose the team.
And I can't lose another thing, Cristal.
I can't.
Okay, stop spinning out.
Let me handle it.
- You? - ¿Perdón? Yes, me.
You said that you didn't want a part of any of this.
And I also said I wanted to paint our nursery yellow, but I can't have that, right? And if I can't have the future we planned, I need to start building a new one or I'm gonna go crazy.
And handling my team is the way to do that? Our team.
I already helped run a team for my family.
Exactly.
And you said you were miserable and that they were horrible people.
Which is why they're not in my life anymore.
But I still know how to do the job.
Let me handle it.
Trust that I know what to do with the family I love.
God knows, I could use the time to bond with my son.
And while you take care of your dynasty, I'll take care of ours.
(horns honking) MICHAEL: Since when are you representing the team? Since Blake bought it for me as an engagement gift.
Do you want a play-by-play of our relationship or can we talk about land? Can we? Because I'm in charge of player relations, Cristal, not infrastructure.
Or do you want a play-by-play of how the business works? Nice.
But I already have my eyes on another piece of land.
The perfect piece of land.
It's actually in the same neighborhood.
(chuckles) Jeff's land.
Is that why you came to talk to me, - so I can help you schmooze? - No.
I came to you because you're also part owner.
(exhales) Fine.
You and Jeff know each other.
- We're not exactly friends.
- I know.
But maybe you know him well enough to tell me what deal he would agree on.
Jeff's the only one with enough land to fit a football stadium in the same area we agreed to place the team.
And he's also a silent partner.
Jeff's program has a way bigger impact on this community than our team.
I can't do this to him.
I thought you guys weren't friends.
This is not about me.
This is about making a difference in people's lives.
Funny, I'd think you'd be focused on your own life.
- What's that supposed to mean? - If we don't have a stadium deal, we don't have a team.
And if we don't have a team, you're in charge of player relations of nothing.
Your stock options become worthless.
Of course, you can always go back to being a driver for someone like Blake.
Or me.
Or Jeff.
You do have more experience at that than at running a team.
ANDERS: Staff will have your belongings - up here in no time.
- Uh, I didn't bring any.
I didn't expect to be invited to stay.
Oh, that's the Carringtons for you.
What they lack in tact, they make up for in hospitality.
We've had all sorts of waifs and strays: crazy murderer, kidnapping nanny, faux gurus - Do you think that's me? - I hope not.
But I've learned the hard way not to trust strangers.
I'm hoping for a positive result, so that we can erase Hank from our lives.
A moment with the Lindbergh baby? Fallon, look, I think we got off - on the wrong foot.
- Yes, you're right.
Your feet never should've stepped into our foyer.
Now, how much will it take for you to turn around and go back to your Island of Misfit Boys? $5 million? I'm serious.
I am not gonna let you put my father through this.
I don't mean any harm to your father.
Ten? I can't believe you're my little sister.
Ha.
That makes two of us.
You know, all my life, I thought I was an only child.
And I always dreamed about having a big family.
I was never jealous of my friends who grew up with money.
Just the ones who had siblings.
The way you're protecting your dad, I-I wish I had someone like you protecting me when I was growing up.
I admire you, Fallon.
$15 million? I have to get a DNA test.
You can't tempt me with money, Fallon.
The only reason I came here was to find out where I'm from.
I'm not letting you put a price tag on that.
BLAKE: I-I know this isn't the-the best father and son bonding time, but if Hank lied about his sample, I want to be careful - about everything else.
- I get it.
Being betrayed by the people you love can screw you up.
Got to say, seeing the name Carrington all over the hospital is blowing my mind.
Well, the Carrington name is on practically every building in Atlanta.
I know it's overwhelming, but you'll get used to it pretty quick.
I'm still getting used to the people, let alone the name.
And I-I don't know anything about anyone.
Well, let's see.
Alexis's biggest asset is the last name that we let her pretend that she still has.
That and a trailer we used to let her sleep in.
Fallon's thing is she almost married her cousin, but then she decided to marry a total stranger instead.
And then Anders, Anders is He's like a second father to me.
And an actual father to Steven.
He and Alexis had an affair in the past.
We just found out about it, and that's why Steven's gone.
God, I hope this isn't making you want to run away.
No, it doesn't.
I'm not just doing this for you.
I need these answers.
I need to know where I came from, who my father is.
And, to be honest, I need to know why you're so trusting of me when no one else seems to be.
- Do you need a kidney or something? - (chuckles) No, not yet.
But how's your liver? I just don't want to lose a son to DNA again.
Uh, I'm fine getting my blood done, but seeing it done on other people makes me feel kind of woozy.
Do you mind if I step out and use the bathroom? No.
If I faint, I'm in the right place.
(woman speaking indistinctly over P.
A.
) (indistinct chatter) JENNINGS: There are plenty of cases that show huge increases in investment when a team adopts a neighborhood.
And we plan to hire 60% locally during the construction period.
And we'll pay you three times what you already paid for the land.
It's a win-win for everyone.
It's a double win for you, I'll give you that.
The investments in the area you're talking about, that's just a spin on gentrification.
And the jobs, they're good in the short-term, yes, but they're gone once construction is done.
We'll make it our mission to employ more locals once we get the stadium off the ground.
You name the percentage, and we'll make it happen.
Better yet, you'll be in charge of that as the partner you already are.
And what exactly would that employment look like? The only thing to give are concession gigs and jerseys to go along with it.
What's enriching about that? I know what you're doing, 'cause I've been doing it my whole life.
You're trying to make a deal.
But I'm trying to change lives.
So I want no part of your great plan.
Tell Blake that sending his wife was a-a waste of time.
- I'm his partner.
- Right.
Close the door on your way out, partner.
Thanks so much for taking the time to do this.
Consider it an apology for earlier.
That was no way to treat a stranger who barged into my house claiming to be a long-lost Carrington.
Besides, now we get to do our "getting to know my maybe-soon-to-be brother" picnic, which we haven't done since Hank, so - You said your name was Mikey? - Mike "Mikey" Harrison.
Uh, I never really liked it though.
Too '80s for me.
There's nothing wrong with the '80s.
You can ask my fanny packs.
Plural? So, you don't like the '80s.
What else? What else do you want to know? Favorite movie, - first love, and all that? - Sure.
The last place you worked.
Three previous cities you lived in.
Last four digits of my social? Oh, you're serious.
Well, I grew up in Billings.
Been there my whole life.
Uh, I worked as a vet at Happy Tails Clinic.
- Aw.
- (scoffs) Took care of my mom while she was sick.
No siblings.
Though now I guess I have two.
Though I haven't heard much about Steven.
Is he coming back from Paraguay or Would it be weird if I went out there to meet him? Steven is a very private person.
He doesn't want strangers coming up to him, telling him that they're his brother.
Again.
So what's his deal? What's my maybe brother like? SAM: He's the best brother you'll ever have.
He's kind and generous.
We don't need to answer any of these questions until we can prove that you're a member of this family.
You barely made the train, honey.
It's gonna take a while before you get a window seat.
I'm sorry, honey.
I just thought we were trying to get to know each other.
Well, this is how I get to know people.
And I think I've got everything I need.
If you wanted a résumé, you could've just done a Google search on me.
And you could've sent an envelope with a mouth swab, but here we are.
And I did search you, but you can't believe everything you read, or hear, right? Mikey Gordon Harrison.
Come on, Sam.
Really? It's not even 7:00 p.
m.
And I'm really looking forward to going to bed.
For the first time in forever, I feel relaxed.
People should replace sleeping pills with long-lost sons.
Right.
- About the stadium - Yeah, about that.
I'm-I'm really thankful to you for taking the reins and letting me spend time with Adam.
I don't know what I would've done if I had to handle that crisis on top of everything.
Yeah.
It's all smooth sailing.
Just sorting out some details.
Well, I'm glad you're on top of it.
(sighs) So you got what you needed from Adam or Mikey or whatever his name is, and we're done, right? Because I don't think I can keep lying anymore.
Oh, settle down, Gaybraham Lincoln.
Yes, we're done.
Now it's time for a little trip.
Okay.
There's a place in Florida we can stay at until the dust settles.
I told you, Sam, I'm not setting foot in Florida until I die or run for office.
This is more of a learning trip.
I'm gonna teach you how to up your lying game.
In Billings, Montana.
- It's okay, buddy.
- (dogs barking) You're such a good boy.
Oh, excuse me.
Excuse me, this is an emergency.
Our dog needs to see a vet immediately.
We're married.
She's my husband.
- Your wife.
- Wife.
He's just nervous because, you know, the dog is sick.
- This dog.
- Yes.
She gets it, honey.
Right, darling.
(chuckles) Anyway, we called earlier, but some secretary said that you were all booked, which made us very sad, because we were hoping that our doggy could see the amazing Dr.
Mikey.
- Mikey, uh, Harrison - Mm-hmm.
- I believe is his last name.
- Mm-hmm.
Anyway, please.
Reggie needs him.
- Well, what's wrong with Reggie? - I don't know.
You know, I've never heard that name for a female dog.
Uh, Reggie as in, uh, Regina.
'Cause, you know, that's such a cute name, right? - And she's such a Reggie.
- Oh.
So can we, uh, see Dr.
Harrison, or what? I'm afraid he doesn't work here anymore.
What? Well, that's unexpected.
Where-where does he work? I mean, we really, really want our dog to see the best vet in Billings.
- Oh, really, Reggie is a perfect name for her.
- (both chuckle) Was he fired? - Nothing like that, I assure you.
- SAM: Well, then what was it? I mean, we should know that information being the parents of a prospective client.
- Oh, don't cry.
- (whimpering) Don't cry, we'll find him.
We will find Dr.
Harrison.
I don't blame you for wanting to see him he was the best but he went to Atlanta.
Everyone misses him.
Even the pets.
You know, he loved animals so much, he left human medicine to become a vet.
Oh, he was a people doctor? Well, I think, uh, I think Reggie's feeling all better.
You want to live here? Yes.
Let's go, Daddy.
Got some more digging to do.
- (whimpering) - (gasps) (Michael sighs) (footsteps approaching) I found another tract of land that could work.
- The state did reclaim it, though, so - Michael.
That's not necessary.
I've got it all worked out.
- Is that so? - It is.
But I'm gonna need your help.
I need you to go to the zoning board vote.
- Bad idea.
Jeff will be pissed if he sees me there.
- Good.
We're counting on that.
Well, you have been so helpful.
And if there's anything the Carrington Hospital Group can do for you, do not hesitate.
Okay.
Thank you.
(gasps) Unbelievable.
I'm thinking about buying land in Montana.
You know I'm all about real estate, but at this point, it would be less of an undertaking to adopt another dog and name her Reggie.
It's gross how well you know me.
So when I called the hospital in Billings and I told them that I would like to hire Dr.
Mikey Harrison for one of our hospitals here in Atlanta, they told me that he did not choose to leave.
He was forced out for patient abuse.
Apparently, he was prescribing opioids to his patients without telling them, and then stealing the drugs for himself.
- Well, that's cruel.
- If this guy got fired and had his medical license revoked for stealing drugs, doesn't it make sense that he would go to a veterinary clinic where he could steal them without the strict rules - of a human hospital? - I hate to say it, but - You think I'm crazy? - I think you're not.
It all checks out.
This guy's life is falling apart so he comes knocking on the golden Carrington door.
Thank God I'm the gatekeeper.
On the rezoning proposal for entrepreneur Jeff Colby to build a music and arts center on his vacant 70-acre lot in Adams Park, how do you vote? Nay.
What? - Nay.
- WOMAN 1: Nay.
- MAN 1: Nay.
- WOMAN 2: Yea.
WOMAN 3: Nay.
MAN 2: Nay.
The measure is defeated.
CLERK: Next up is a vote on the proposed redevelopment of The Gulch in downtown Atlanta.
Hey, wait a second.
This is insane.
The measure has been defeated, Mr.
Colby.
Please clear the area so we can get to other business.
This was a slam dunk.
A gift to the city, to the community, that won't cost anyone a dime.
How could you do this? There's not a damn thing wrong with this proposal and you know it.
You are all failing the people of Atlanta, the people who need this project the most, and-and for what? Someone tell me a single benefit of this project dying here today.
Mr.
Colby.
(people murmuring) Unbelievable.
(knocking on door) - Hi.
- What do you want? I'm I'm just checking you're okay.
I'm not.
No.
I know you don't want me here.
Which makes it that much easier for me to disappear and go back to my life.
I really wish that you hadn't come here.
I had this crazy idea that you would be the one who immediately knew that I was really Adam.
And I can't figure out why you're so sure that I'm not.
Listen, I have already done this, Adam.
Or whatever your name really is.
Look at me closely.
Please.
I think you know that I'm your son.
But for some strange reason, you you're scared of me.
Is it something I've done? I am so sorry but you should go.
I need you to go.
(gasping) Sorry to disturb you, sir, but I thought you'd like to know the results of the DNA test as soon as they came in.
Of course.
What do they say? Well, at the risk of sounding like a trashy talk show host, you, Adam, are the son of Blake Carrington.
It's a match.
Yes.
I knew it.
JENNINGS: Wonderful news.
I'm so happy for both of you.
- FALLON: Aw.
- (Blake chuckling) Am I missing a love fest? Be careful, Daddy, I know that he won your heart, but he might have just picked your pocket.
Well, now, that's enough, Fallon.
'Cause the DNA results confirm it, Adam is your brother.
Well, you don't actually think I give a damn about that.
No.
I've been there.
Done that.
I am far more interested in how your doctor son lost his license.
By stealing narcotics from his patients.
Fallon, please.
No, no, no, no, no.
It gets much worse.
He then went to go work at a veterinary clinic.
To help animals? Oh, no.
To steal more drugs.
Because he is an addict.
That-that can't be true.
SAM: It is, Blake.
I know.
It sucks.
Look, it kills me to come in here and crush your dreams, but I'm not about to let this disgraced druggie come in here and win you over in what, less than a day, only to hurt you in the future.
Is any of this true? It is.
I was fired from a hospital and I went to work at a vet's clinic.
- To get narcotics? - Yes.
But not for me.
For my mother.
She was in pain her whole life.
I did anything I could to help her.
I mean, I became a doctor because of her.
Then she needed more, and I was, I was a first-year resident.
I didn't have any money, so I I prescribed drugs to my patients without them knowing, and I went to the pharmacies to pick them up myself.
That's why I lost my license.
And then when she overdosed (exhales) Look, I feel responsible for her death.
I enabled her addiction.
I just wanted to stop her pain.
I'm really sorry I didn't tell you.
Or you, Fallon.
BLAKE: I'm sorry, son.
What you've gone through is unimaginable.
And partially my fault.
N-None of it's your fault.
I do understand what it's like to live with an addict.
Steven has been struggling for most of his life.
It may be helpful if you tell your story to him when you meet him next week.
- I'm sorry.
What? - You're gonna meet Steven? Yeah.
We thought it would be nice, uh, to connect with Steven, but now I think it would be imperative.
In Paraguay? I've made the arrangements for the jet and the accommodation, and no tents this time.
I think it's a terrible idea, and you should absolutely not go.
Sam, I know that you and Steven are having a hard time right now, but you wouldn't try to stop his father and his brother from spending time with him, would you? I can think of a million reasons why you shouldn't go to Paraguay.
- Such as? - Such as: this is hurricane season, for one.
Anders? Well, Paraguay is landlocked, sir.
- You're clear.
- No, not clear.
(stammers) They-they still have heavy rain and strong winds.
It's not ideal for traveling.
It's not safe.
You know what? Um, Adam.
I have been rude to you.
I have been disgustingly rude to you, and I would like to spend the next few weeks making it up to my new brother.
You have a lifetime to do that.
We're going to Paraguay.
End of discussion.
You can't go to Paraguay.
You can't go.
Because Steven is not in Paraguay, Steven is in Paris.
- And that's where we were.
- Seriously? What? With everything that Cristal and I have been going through? The three of you flitted off to Paris for some shopping spree? That's low, Fallon, even for you.
We didn't go on a shopping spree, Dad.
I went to We went to Paris to go to go find Steven.
Did you? Where is he? He's in a mental hospital.
And he didn't want me to tell you that.
But there it is.
Welcome to the funhouse.
At the very least, you should have told me immediately, and the only reason why you did come clean is because you got caught.
Well, this is not how I wanted this to come out.
I don't know.
You just had so much tragedy going on in your life lately, with Mark and with the baby.
Oh, stop acting like you were trying to protect me, 'cause you weren't.
You were just trying to avoid your own feelings of guilt.
Because you failed Steven.
And you certainly failed me.
GEORGE: She did the right thing.
She was just dealing with her own pain as best she could.
That's why she didn't tell you.
Believe me, I've dealt with the same things in my family, and I've made difficult decisions, and you wanted to spare your family the pain that you've had to endure alone.
- (scoffs) - Right? Dad, you just got me back.
You don't want to lose another one.
Just need time to process all this.
And I think Adam should be the one to help you with that.
I think you should stay.
What? I promised my dad that I would do my best to protect him, but look what happened.
So, I think he needs you right now more than he needs me.
Will you stay? I'd be honored to.
Do you need a map to your room? No.
I just wanted to apologize.
If I had known what the real deal was You would have done the same thing.
And you'd have been right.
I'm just happy everything's out in the open.
It was really killing Sam.
Yeah, it was killing you, too.
- I saw it.
- I'm stronger than I look.
I don't think you are.
I mean, sure, you you look like this badass that doesn't take crap from anyone, but you care about your brother, and you're allowed to feel the pain over his choice and your choice to go along with it.
Hmm? I hope we're the kind of family that kisses on the lips.
- We're so not.
- Oh.
Maybe we are now.
You know, it's really easy to see why you're the heart of this family.
The smartest, the most driven.
The one who can think ahead.
We're very alike, you and me.
We really are siblings.
Two of a kind.
Sweet dreams, sis.
Remember last year when I voted to sell your company? Those were the good ole days.
What are you doing here, Jeff? It's really not a good time.
JEFF: Then let's make it better.
How about we celebrate both of our losses? Here.
You may have screwed me over again, but that doesn't mean I'm letting you win.
And if you thought that I would let you buy my land to build your stadium, then you've really lost your Madoff touch.
Can someone tell me what's going on here? I tried to buy his land for our stadium.
I offered him plenty of money, but But I told your second Cristal in command, that it was never about that.
So I sold the land to DiFiore Exports for half of what you offered.
They're an Italian-based company with zero interest in getting involved with the Carrington clan.
I guess that dooms the Atlantix.
Oh, well, that is one partnership that I'm not sad to see fail.
That's the look I came to see.
Been a pleasure not doing business with you, Blake.
Did? What? Oh, what was I thinking letting you handle this? You should have come to me, Cristal.
Nobody knows Jeff like I do.
I would have thought of something.
- (door closes) - Oh, now we're screwed.
Ay, no, mi amor.
We're not screwed.
We're celebrating.
Adam coming back and you building the Atlantix stadium on Jeff's land.
Did you not hear what he said?! He sold the land to another company! - He thinks he did.
- Thanks to you.
And, Michael, don't worry.
Everything you pitched Jeff about our plans for the community will happen.
We'll make sure this is a good project, too.
Whatever helps us sleep at night, right? Exactly.
Would someone please tell me what's going on?! Michael will fill you in.
Uh, there's one more thing I need to deal with.
But I stand for what I said.
We should trust family.
- - (scoffs) Beto.
- Tea? - (gasps) I'm sure you heard the news.
I just came to say good night.
And I hope that someday, you'll be able to accept me Mother.
I've been waiting Oh, there is just one thing I wanted to get off my chest.
After my other mother died, I really wanted to meet my brother, so I went to Paraguay.
What? You met Steven? I did.
Such a kind soul.
In one of our conversations, he told me the story about how he found Hank, and how you sent him to El Paso where Adam had last been seen, which I found odd, because I've never been to Texas.
Well, that's because the investigator that I hired said so.
He, um well, he fooled me.
So you're just burning those files for fun, not covering your tracks, right? Well, they're just old tax returns.
- I hate clutter.
- 'Cause the thing is, Steven also told me that he saw Hank's positive DNA results, which couldn't have been real.
So when I was at the clinic doing my DNA testing, I did some digging.
- Do you know what this is? - Of course I don't.
Why would I? Not only were Hank's results not a match, but they were signed for by someone in the family.
Someone who clearly switched them.
Someone who is you.
Mother.
And I take it that's why you were so against me in the first place.
Your real son.
To protect your lie? No, I had no choice.
I was an outsider.
I had nothing.
As despicable as it sounds, I had to do something to get my family back.
I am so sorry, Adam.
Please tell me that you understand.
I-I do understand.
I-I want my family back, too.
But right now, I I just want a hug from my real mother.
Free tonight For you Oh.
I know when you're telling the truth.
And right now, I'm gonna tell you the truth, too.
Everything (groaning softly) is gonna be all right.
You know, the-the tricky thing with addiction is that it takes longer for the body to accept the meds.
So, it's-it's a good thing I put in twice the lethal dose of tranquilizers.
(whimpering) Secrets and lies tear families apart Theresa.
(gasps) I just hate that you weren't honest with me sooner.
You had so many chances to come clean.
And you hurt Blake so badly, and you were willing to do it again.
Well, now, what are you gonna do? I'm gonna listen to my heart, and forgive you.
Burn it.
It'll be our little secret.
And from this point forward, it's me and you against the world.
For you - Come lay down your head - All of my life - Rest in my arms - I've been waiting - You're free tonight - For you - Come lay down your head - All of my life - Rest in my arms - I've been waiting You're free tonight For you.
