Dynasty (2017) s03e07 Episode Script

Shoot From the Hip

1 - Previously on Dynasty - Remembering anything at all is-is a really good sign.
For you.
Do you remember that we were engaged? I mean, do you remember that you loved me? The Atlantix's next opponent just canceled their reservation.
The Victor Diaz story just came out, and now they don't feel safe staying here.
We'll get you on Monica's label and use Jeff's streaming service to play your music.
Soon everyone will know who you are.
I am here to introduce you to Fallon Unlimited, our new namesake magazine.
Dominique's your stepmom, right? You got to promise not to tell Jeff and Monica.
They will never accept me.
And Dominique will kill me.
We've been discussing sending you to a school that specializes - in this kind of thing.
- Who's "we"? - You mean Cristal? - Acting like an entitled brat will definitely help Cristal make her case for sending you away.
You know what would be great? If my wife and my son could coexist peacefully so I could focus on the trial.
Now it's time to put your memory to the test.
Do you remember this? Pull.
Great shot, boss.
Not your boss yet, Darren.
True.
Uh, since tomorrow is the last day of my trial period, I was wondering if you had any feedback for me.
I want to make this Thanksgiving one to remember.
Not as much as I do.
Something goes south with this trial, I don't think Thanksgiving in prison's - gonna be as festive.
- Agreed.
And when I say "one to remember," I don't mean in a tornado or hostage situation way.
Get those tidbits in Anders' binder? Yes.
The binder's very thorough, though a little outdated.
I'm not so sure that your Blockbuster membership number is still necessary.
Don't change the binder.
Pull! Whoa.
Your dad's skeet shooting is giving me PTSD, and I wasn't even in the military.
Well, not that I remember.
No, you weren't.
The closest you've come was Miami last year, when you and I ate a ton of General Tso's chicken.
Miami? Art Basel? Wait, do you remember that? Maybe.
Wait, were we naked at Art Basel? Yes! Yeah, we were always naked.
I mean, in the hotel, not at Art Basel.
Wow, what a breakthrough.
I feel like James Garner at the end of The Notebook.
Just, you know, with better hair.
Maybe later we can reenact the ice cream scene.
Yeah, I've never seen it.
Or maybe I have.
Allison, what is it? I'm having a breakthrough here.
What? W-Wait, wait, wait, you're sure he's coming to Atlanta? You can hold the attitude.
Okay, just get me a room, and I'll handle the rest.
Yeah, goodbye.
Wow.
Landon III is coming to Atlanta.
Am I supposed to know who that is? He's an eccentric creative director from England who's helped launch some of the most successful publications in the last five years.
He's staying at the Windview Lodge for Thanksgiving dinner and a turkey hunt.
Although probably not in that order.
- And you're meeting with him at this lodge? - Yeah, well, if, you know, by meeting him, you mean ambushing and then forcing him to come work for Fallon Unlimited, then yes.
Hey, you should come with me.
Thanksgiving plans? You know we talked about taking it slow.
Uh, that's fine.
I'll be back by tomorrow night anyway.
I thought you said your dad was making a huge deal about Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow and taking a family photo.
What, you're just gonna miss that? God, I hope so.
Well, I admit it's not ideal.
I-I just think that governance of the Carrington Foundation should stay in the hands of a Carrington, not some so-called nonprofit professional.
And you would like that to be you.
I like helping people.
That's why I became a doctor.
And now that I know what it's like to have a disadvantage in life, I can't think of anything I'm better suited for than to run it.
That's funny, because I can't think of anything you're worse suited for.
The Carrington Foundation is an actual business, not something you just sign up to be president of.
- I'm well aware of that.
- It requires an actual knowledge of how things run, which is something you've now proven you lack.
- Many times.
- Cristal, I'm actually talking with my father.
Maybe you should leave.
If you want to help, maybe you could volunteer at a local shelter.
For dogs, obviously.
That's enough, you two.
She started it.
I'm ending it! This could be my last Thanksgiving before I'm behind bars, so I would appreciate if the two of you would make peace.
And remember, the photographer will be here tomorrow at 4:00 to take the family photo.
So I expect you both to be here, ready to smile.
And act happy, damn it.
Don't give up Just don't give up.
Girl, you can sing.
Thank you.
And thank you so much for letting me reschedule this.
- I know you're busy.
- Well, Fallon told me you had a killer voice.
And I think she undersold.
I would love to talk to you more someday.
You know, get to know each other.
I mean, because you're such a strong woman running her own business.
- Well, thank you.
- So what do you think? Which corner were you hiding in? I was in the back making sure your acoustics are good.
Which they are.
- Thanks.
That means so little to me.
- Okay, I think we should - probably just leave now.
- Not yet.
I need to know if Monica's interested in working with you.
There's a possibility.
I'm just not sure I'm interested in working with you.
You're missing Blake's last Thanksgiving dinner and family photo for a turkey hunt? I'm not going on the turkey hunt, okay.
I'm just sitting down with Landon before he goes back to England.
Good.
If you're not here, he won't miss me.
- Why aren't you coming? - Because it sounds boring.
Plus, I have a lot to do at the hotel with the whole Victor Diaz fiasco.
Whoever thought owning a hotel meant spending the entire day ordering free room service was wrong.
Well, you could always have dinner with Liam.
He will be home alone.
- Hmm? - Are you leaving Liam alone for Thanksgiving? Of course you're there, lurking like an AV kid at prom.
Um, do you think that's such a good idea, given his issues? Aren't you worried about a backslide? What, like Liam getting back together with Ashley? No, no.
You don't go back to eating ground beef after you've had filet mignon.
At least not twice.
I'm not talking about Ashley.
Uh, backsliding is a condition that occurs in amnesia victims, and it's when they forget things that they've already remembered.
And it usually occurs when they're far from their main memory source.
I think he means you.
Oh, it probably won't happen to Liam, so don't worry.
Oh, I'm not worried.
Don't you worry about that.
All right, then neither of us are worried.
- Good night.
- Good night.
- Good night.
- Night.
Unbelievable.
I know.
He's so good with that cane.
Though it does look like backsliding is a thing.
Seriously? Liam was just starting to remember things.
I can't have him here alone, at home, forgetting.
- Take him with you.
- He still wants us to take it slow.
Cancel the trip, then.
Or I could have thought of an even better idea while you were talking, which I did.
You may want to order another one of those.
Why, are you paying for it? No.
When you told me to stay away from Vanessa, was that because you didn't want me near your client or your stepdaughter? I don't know what you're talking about.
You are using Monica to get Vanessa a record deal.
That's why you came back.
Not because you missed them.
I love all of my children, Michael.
No, you need them.
Are you going to get to the point? Yeah.
I'm giving you one day to tell Jeff and Monica the truth.
One day.
Or I'll do it myself.
I wanted to ask for a truce.
Please don't roll your eyes at me.
Wait, can you actually see? No, I can't.
I just asked Nadia to let me know if you made a face at me.
I'll just be over here.
Look, Father wants this to be a memorable Thanksgiving, so I'd like to do something special for him, and I-I'd like your help.
I would like to bake a pie for Blake that he loved as a child.
It's from this recipe I found when I first moved in, from his great-grandmother, who tragically died in a fire.
Which seems to be a recurring theme around here.
But if you're not interested, I get it.
No I'll do it.
I'll help.
For Blake.
- I'll see you tomorrow.
- Not if I see you first.
That went well.
It did.
Now tell me why you really asked her for help, and then what I can do.
You really do know me.
Our hotel is a ghost town, Anders.
50% occupancy during the holiday season? We should be turning people away.
But no one's booking because they're afraid of getting kneecapped, like Victor.
Well, I'm sure they'll change their mind when you explain that two kneecappings occurring in the same hotel is very unlikely.
Oh, I'm so sorry, sir.
May I help you? And that's six minutes it took for you to ask me.
I'm Fletcher Myers.
The PR guy that owed Fallon Carrington a favor.
Oh, oh, yes, yes-yes-yes.
Thank you so much for coming.
So, where do we start? You can tell me what you've done so far to deal with the fallout.
Well, I called everyone who canceled and I told them about our new, hidden security cameras we installed.
And how many of them rebooked after learning they were going to be secretly recorded 24/7? I'm beginning to see the problem here.
I think he's referring to you.
Yeah, I get it.
I don't know, I've never written something like this before.
I'm used to novels.
Well, an article is just a novel for someone with ADHD.
It's all writing, you know, you just put a pen to paper and let the process flow.
The important thing is that you are here with me.
To write an article about the hotel's history.
And I'm here to meet with Landon.
Who is, oddly, walking over here right now.
Okay, please be cool.
Landon.
- L.
R.
? - L.
T.
? Oh, my God! L.
R.
, L.
T.
, can I get a T.
O.
? What's going on? You guys know each other? Hell yeah.
He gave me my first internship when I was studying in London.
Which could have become a full-time position if he hadn't decided to become a cliché and traverse the world, like some type of beautiful Viking.
Wow.
So when I told you I wanted to meet with a British creative director named Landon, you didn't think to tell me you knew him? Well, I didn't know it was this Landon.
And I've also always known him as L.
T.
And you said he was English - when he is - Welsh.
Ah, silly me.
I'm Fallon Carrington.
Hi.
From America.
Delighted.
- It's brilliant to see you, mate.
- You, too.
Didn't expect to find you here.
Not exactly one for hunting.
I'm actually writing an article about this place for Fallon's upcoming magazine.
Thank you.
Yes, I, uh, would love to talk to you about it.
I actually have an opportunity that I think you'll be very, very interested in.
If you're free to chat? For this bloke, I'll do anything.
- Hey.
- Onward.
- How are you? - I'm good.
Good.
No sharp knives.
I am at a slight disadvantage.
I'm not gonna stab you, Adam.
Staff is gone, and I don't know where they keep the silverware.
- Mm-hmm.
Mm-hmm.
- Hmm.
All right, what am I doing? Oh, sorry.
Here we go.
Blake is gonna love this.
I should actually go check on him.
Could I ask you a favor? Would you lead me to the stairs? I forgot my cane.
- Let's go.
- Thank you.
Why didn't you tell me Michael Culhane knows you're my stepdaughter? How? Who told you? He did.
Now everything that we've worked for is in jeopardy.
Because you wanted to share your feelings with some man you barely know.
I didn't tell him.
He figured it out.
And I didn't tell you because I thought you'd freak out, which, clearly, I was right about.
The plan was to get Monica to sign you before we told her the truth.
Now Michael Culhane has given me one day to come clean, or he does it himself.
I'm sorry.
Maybe this is a good thing.
Maybe we should come clean.
Monica seems great, and I feel terrible lying to her.
So I can do it if you want.
You've known Monica for five minutes, Vanessa.
It needs to come from me.
Keep working.
Maybe consider adding "barista" to your résumé, because if this goes badly, you're going to need it.
Basically, you handled the McCarty plaque situation the wrong way, and I'm here to stop you from doing that same thing again.
I'm not sure I like your tone.
You didn't hire me for my charm.
Good, because I was about to ask for a refund.
And the McCarty thing was not my fault.
I've done everything I can to make it go away.
Exactly my point.
I don't know if you're trying to work out some trauma from your childhood or recent history, but you can't fix the past, Sam.
Well, you're really great at telling me what I can't do, but what can you do? There's the, uh, secret but not-so-secret donation, or the new management option, or maybe the Good Samaritan move.
Really depends on which way you want to go and what you want this hotel to be.
You think that I'm the one stuck in the past, but you are the one pitching recycled ideas to fix my hotel.
What's your plan, then? Telling the truth.
- Oh.
- I'll use social media to explain what really happened with Victor and how it will never happen again.
Yeah.
Good luck with that.
I've often wanted a touch of amnesia.
How is it? Ah, well, it was definitely weird to hear that I was engaged to a woman I didn't recognize, published a book that I don't remember writing, and learned that I missed three seasons of Queer Eye.
Oh, so much frothy melodrama to catch up on.
Uh, speaking of frothy, my magazine So, how did Mother Laura take all of this excitement? Well, you know my mother.
Intimately.
Oh, right.
Right.
Two years ago.
Aunt Mora's New Year's Eve party.
You recall that? Oh, yeah.
And I really wish I didn't now, you dog.
As much as I would love to discuss Laura Van Kirk's sex life all day and all night, um, I do have a presentation I'd love to show you Right, but first, what about this article of Liam's? Oh, like I said, it's a it's a piece on the lodge's history.
Apparently, this oil lamp once belonged to President John Tyler.
Yes, but that's just one article.
We are still looking to solidify our creative direction.
That is where you come in.
Now, if you want, we can go somewhere a little more quiet to talk? I'd love to, but I don't quite have the time now.
The men's club awaits.
So how about we meet for afternoon tea? You'll have my full attention then? That's fine.
Liam and I were gonna go Liam, would you like to join me? There's a lot of history with the men's club that could help with the article.
Devil's in the details, I always say.
I mean, the insider's perspective could be really good for this.
You're okay with that, right? - Yeah, but I thought - Look, I promise you are gonna love this article.
Okay? We'll talk later.
- Mm-hmm.
- Let's go.
Yes.
Is something burning? Hello? Anyone? I smell Oh.
Oh, no.
Yeah, I'm guessing that's not how the pie's supposed to smell.
No, Adam.
The pie is black now.
What? Why? Did you set the temperature wrong? I did exactly what you told me to do.
I don't know what happened.
Of course this would happen on the one day I needed everything to be perfect.
Well, we have a couple of hours.
- Maybe we can make a new one.
- No, we're out of pecans.
I got these special caramelized pecans from this lady down in Whitewater Creek.
First, Great-Grandma Rudy dies in a fire, and now her pie does as well? I mean I guess I could drive and get the pecans.
- Are you sure? - I can see how much this matters to you.
And how much it will matter to Blake.
Thank you.
Here's your Manhattan, sir.
- Thank you, Darren.
- Of course.
Mr.
Anders referred to it as your "afternoon pick-me-up.
" Is there a problem? Look, I'm fine with the changes to the Thanksgiving menu, even your more modern dressing habits, but please don't mess with an Anders Manhattan, all right? Some things are sacred.
I'll do it better next time.
Are you watching news about Blake? No, it's much worse.
Uh, people are responding to your social media proclamations.
Much worse? What do you mean? #LaMirageLaGarbage.
#SammyJoke.
What? #WorstHotelierInATL.
This is, this is terrible.
Well, it may not be the most creative hashtag in the world, but it's not terrible.
It gets its point across.
Now news outlets are picking up on the story.
Perhaps Fletcher Myers might have known what he was talking about.
Anders, you only liked him because he had a binder.
I've input his number.
Just press call, apologize, and ask for help.
Hey, Fletcher, it's Sam Jones.
I just wanted to Well, you couldn't have been expecting my call, because I just decided to make it, so You know, you are just as obnoxious on the phone as you are in person.
You know what? I'm good.
I don't need your help.
I already have a great idea, so bye.
Remind me to work with you on the art of the apology.
Can we put the sass on hold? I need to come up with a great idea fast.
Any great ideas? Crazy Apologies.
We, uh, seem to have lost track of time.
Yes, well, I understand.
I seem to have lost track of time myself.
But the good news is the waitstaff here loves me now.
Except for Beth, who's been trying to take my order for two hours.
So maybe we should just tell her what we want and then I'll dive right in.
I'm actually quite knackered.
I need to meditate before the turkey hunt.
I have shoddy aim when I'm unfocused.
Let's reschedule the business chitchat for later tonight.
After the hunt? Brilliant.
I'll be in touch.
Uh-oh.
- You're mad.
- Liam.
I understand that your memory is not what it used to be, so I will remind you that we are here because I have an important business deal that I need to close.
Not so you and Landon can act like frat bros.
I know, all right, I'm sorry.
But I got a ton of great material for the article.
I'm almost finished.
And this exclusive turkey hunt sounds absolutely insane.
And, I mean, I'm starting to remember things.
Like, uh, when we went to Miami.
Yes, that's right.
We went to Art Basel.
No, I meant when Landon and I went to Miami.
You and I went to Art Basel? Liam, we literally just talked about this yesterday.
You know what? That's not the point.
I've had enough.
Landon would not be ducking me if I were a man.
And no one ducks Fallon Carrington.
Gobble, gobble.
No solicitors, please.
You can go.
I found something last night.
You always loved Thanksgiving.
I thought you might want it back to remember the good moments.
Wow.
This is the most maternal thing you've done, ever.
Listen we need to talk.
Yeah, we do.
I'm sorry I was so icy to you yesterday.
With Jeff away on business and Dad visiting family, I've felt a little lonely.
I know the feeling.
I was thinking, maybe a mother-daughter reunion wouldn't be the worst thing.
So I'm drafting a contract for Vanessa to sing here.
Then you and I can start a professional relationship and go from there.
- Really? - She's good.
And she doesn't deserve to be ignored because of our problems.
So, your turn.
What's up? I I'm glad you feel that way.
Do you want to join me for Thanksgiving dinner tonight? I'm housesitting at Jeff's.
And you can bring Vanessa.
I'd love to get to know her better.
I'd love nothing more.
Ugh.
What the? Of course.
All right, hunters, get your mouth callers in order before we split into small groups.
Hold your weapons, boys.
Fallon, this adventure is invitation only.
No offense intended.
None taken, which is why I have no intention of leaving.
When I want something, I go after it.
And I want you, Landon.
Let's see what you've got, then.
Fallon Unlimited is expecting a circulation of over half a million copies nationwide I meant your skill, not your business.
Well, my skill is business.
And with your input, Fallon Unlimited could really take off.
Here, this presentation might help.
Connecting with nature doesn't include 5G technology.
Okay, but connecting with the market does.
You see, I really, really need you, Landon.
You know, in a "willing to wear blood sport outfits" kind of way.
- I think you look great.
- Thanks.
Since we're talking business, Liam, I spoke to a contact about a writing job in London that you'd be perfect for.
- Really? - Wait.
What? It's temporary, though you'd need to move in two weeks.
Wow.
L.
T.
, man, that sounds incredible.
Good thing we stumbled upon each other.
All right.
Now, let's kill some innocent turkeys.
I was hoping maybe we could just kill them with kindness.
- Get it? - Any luck? No ideas.
And my Google search for "hot PR genius "available to work on Thanksgiving in greater Atlanta" didn't give me anything other than a weird link to a pornographic pilgrim video.
Which I only watched twice.
Take the day off.
You've got tomorrow to remake the hotel however you see fit.
I will hold down the fort tonight.
- What about Thanksgiving? - Well, Kirby's away, and this holiday doesn't mean that much to me.
That's not true.
I know how much you used to love Thanksgiving at the manor.
Well, maybe so.
But the manor, unfortunately, is no longer my home.
As far as this holiday is concerned, I am effectively homeless.
Despite a healthy bank account and a nicely appointed new apartment, obviously.
Anders, I think you just gave me a really good idea.
But I'm gonna need your help.
How can I help you? I just wanted to wish my big brother a happy holiday.
Ah.
I need dirt on your former driver.
And I know you have it.
Well, you also know I don't give out anything for free.
I don't expect you to.
I have an offer.
Give me what you have and you can be done writing me checks.
For good.
You know what, Dominique? It would be worth it just to get you out of my life.
So, sure.
I'll give you a copy.
Just curious.
Do you have a file on me? Yes, and it just got bigger.
Now, I have a family photo to take, so please leave.
Ms.
Watt.
Thank you for taking time - out of your holiday for us.
- Of course.
I'd like to make this a memorable moment.
Maybe we pose here by the piano.
Great.
And it'll be just you in the picture? No, no.
The rest of the family's coming.
My wife and daughter and ex-son-in-law, they'll be here any moment.
Maybe I should just make a quick call.
You've reached Cristal Carrington.
Please leave me a I don't have a ton of time, so we should probably get rolling and just take it with whoever's here.
Dad, is it time for the picture? Y-Yes, Adam.
Do you know where everyone else is? I-I don't.
I figured they knew how important this family picture was.
Especially Cristal.
I'm here.
And I'm family.
I should be a part of the picture.
I-I can't believe this.
I thought I made myself very clear.
I'm here, Dad.
Why don't we take a photo, just the two of us? It's our first Thanksgiving together.
Sounds peachy to me.
Okay, don't move.
I'm gonna take a bunch.
May I have some more? It looks delicious.
Wow.
I had no idea this many people would show up.
Well, I must admit, I thought the whole idea was a bit sketchy myself, but, uh, I was wrong.
- It was inspired.
- Inspired by you.
All that talk about you feeling that you don't have a home made me realize that there are actual homeless people out there.
Well, I hope you didn't just realize that - a couple hours ago.
- No, you know what I mean.
Oh.
He's homeless.
It's all starting to make sense now.
Well, if you'll excuse me, there is something I need to care of.
I'm not homeless.
I, uh, came here to apologize.
And to congratulate you for working with the shelter to make this happen so quickly.
Well, it's very gracious of you.
But I owe you nothing.
- Fair.
- Mm-hmm.
Made the local news, by the way.
The hotel's finally getting some positive PR.
Well, that's not what this was about.
Okay, that's a lie, but it was nice to do something good for the people.
Which is what the hotel is all about anyway.
Well, I'd be happy to make sure the story goes wider.
For free, as, uh, as part of my apology.
You know, you are kind of nice when you're not being obnoxious.
Don't get used to it.
I'm late for Thanksgiving.
I'm assuming you've spoken to Monica? I got it from Blake.
Now, as you can see, my brother has a lot on you.
The last thing we'd want is for your family to find out some of the things you've done.
It would destroy your mother.
What do you want? I want you to do nothing.
Don't say a word to Monica, and your mother and your sister will never find out about any of this.
Does that seem fair? You're a Carrington.
Of course it's not fair.
Aw don't be mad, Michael.
Someday you'll thank me for this.
Turkey right ahead.
It's not moving.
Maybe because it's a bush.
Let me assess.
Then we'll proceed with 10-5.
Hey.
You okay? You seem a little upset.
Upset? Yeah, yeah.
You could say that.
You know, I've been so busy trying to charm Landon, I didn't realize that he's just trying to charm you.
You know, sometimes I get so focused, I miss the thing that's right in front of me.
Are we talking about that turkey? No! We're talking about Landon.
And London.
You and Landon in London, and how you can't move there.
Well, Fallon, I never said yes.
I mean, oh, yeah, it sounds like a great opportunity for me.
What, an opportunity to forget me? I mean, think about it, Liam.
Have you remembered one new thing since you've been here? About me? No, you haven't.
And if you move away, then you're gonna backslide all the way to 2012 if I'm not there to keep an eye on you.
Fallon, you're the one who gave me this assignment to begin with.
Yeah, which I now realize was a huge mistake.
Okay? But I couldn't leave you home alone.
Did you make up an assignment to get me to come here with you? - Hmm? - Yes.
But only because I was afraid that were you were gonna forget us.
And I thought that I could do both things at the same time, but now I've just screwed up both.
Yeah, well, you have a better shot with Landon than you do with me right now.
Turkey! Ow! Did you just shoot me?! Maybe.
Landon, Landon, I am so sorry, okay? - It was an accident.
- "Sorry" and "accident" are two words that are not permitted on a hunting trip.
I respectfully decline your job offer! No, but we have, uh, great benefits and health insurance.
They may not cover preexisting conditions, but I could try to pull some strings.
Please get me away from her.
I'm sure you have a lot that you want to say right now, but maybe we could just put a pause on it until we get home? I just can't believe that you would invent a job just to keep me close to you.
So that's a no on the pause? Fallon, did you ever just consider telling me the truth? You know, instead of making up an assignment like I'm some eight-year-old who needs to be kept busy.
What kind of person does that? The kind of person who's afraid that if you're not with me, then you'll forget about me.
So what if I forget a few things, Fallon? What is the big deal? The big deal is that if you start forgetting things, one of those things might be us.
And that really scares me, because I don't know if I could start over.
I don't know if I can make you fall in love with me again.
I mean, it was kind of a miracle that it happened in the first place, so you just really need to cut me some slack.
I mean, Liam, you have no idea how hard this has been for me.
Hard for you? Yeah.
Fallon, I have to face the uncertainty of restarting in every aspect of my life, not just our relationship, so I am sorry if this is hard on you.
But you don't have to restart if you don't want to.
I'm the one here who doesn't have a choice.
- Happy Thanksgiving, sir.
- Thank you, Darren.
- Smells great.
- And trust me, it looks delicious.
Look, I know it hurts that Cristal and Fallon and, uh, I guess, even Sam aren't here, that they missed the family picture, but I'm here, Father, and I'm so glad that I can be the one you can count on.
Well, I guess I should start carving.
Seeing as how little the rest of my family cares about me.
Wait.
I'm here.
I'm so sorry.
Just give me five minutes to freshen up I'll be right back.
This is what happens when you listen to your gut.
From now on, La Mirage will be the hotel with a good heart.
Well, thank you.
Mm.
And I should apologize for calling you an arrogant ass.
You never called me that.
Oh, then, I guess I must have thought it.
No, but, really, I-I should apologize for being stubborn.
This was my first Thanksgiving post-divorce, and it's so not where I thought I'd be a year ago.
And I guess that's why I acted the way I did.
It was nothing personal.
I figured.
Because I can see the hotel is not the only thing around here with a good heart.
Uh whoa.
I was not expecting that.
That's what made it so fun.
You have a great holiday, Sam.
You, too.
Looks like the evening got a little more - interesting.
- Yeah.
I don't know where that came from.
Well, don't overthink it.
On a completely different note, I think my work here's done.
Good.
Go home, get some rest.
No, I don't mean tonight.
I mean I'm done here with the hotel.
- For good.
- You're quitting? We both knew this wasn't a long-term thing.
I just wanted to help you open the hotel and to teach you how to fly.
And having watched you today, you are flying like Superman? Well, I was gonna say like a butterfly, but if you prefer Superman, that's fine with me.
I'm really grateful to you, Anders.
But I know that you need to do what's right for you.
And I think we both know what that is.
I am so sorry I was late.
I had to buy something, and my car got two flat tires, and for some reason my phone stopped working.
I couldn't even get a cab - because of the holidays.
- I needed you here before dinner.
But no, no, no, you had to go shopping.
Nothing's even open.
It's Thanksgiving.
I wasn't shopping.
I was getting pecans for Adam.
Oh.
Yeah, of course, you blame Adam.
Say what you want about him and believe me, you have said plenty but he was the only one that was here for me the entire time.
I'm not blaming him.
I was helping him.
He wanted to give you some joy before your trial by baking your favorite pie.
And the reason he stood by you all day was because you make him feel like a problem.
Which most of the time he is.
But he's also been a better person.
And he's still your son.
She's telling the truth.
She really was trying to help me.
I'm sorry, I just wanted this Thanksgiving to be perfect.
Well, I think it comes pretty close.
Can I - finally start carving now? - Hola.
Sorry.
Is it too late for me to change real quick and join you? Okay.
Be right back.
Before we go in, I want to apologize.
And to thank you for taking the high road and telling Monica.
Everything is gonna be so much better.
I mean, we're already having our first Thanksgiving meal as a family.
One thing.
Monica knows nothing.
And we're going to keep it that way for now.
We have a contract to sign.
Okay.
I think we are finally ready? Uh, smells great.
Unfortunately, I do not, so if you could just hold on one second, I'm gonna go shower.
No, you are gonna sit your ass down at this table, we are gonna eat and be thankful! Okay.
Um, sorry.
I got here as fast as I could, given the circumstances.
Oh, my God, you shot a turkey.
I didn't shoot anything on purpose.
Now that we are finally together, granted, under the most excruciating circumstances possible, I want to thank you all for making it.
How about a picture? The photographer left hours ago.
So? Did someone say "picture"? I got this.
I took a few night classes at Emory.
- Good boy.
- Oh.
- Hey.
- All right, everyone.
- What do you got? What is it? - Look this way.
- Wait, Bo, what? - Oh, whoops.
I accidentally pressed the video.
Sorry.
Give me I promise I can do this.
All right, there we go.
Everyone, say "turkey.
" - No.
- Who is this guy? We're thinking of opening a Club Colby offshoot in New York.
And if the brand does well, who knows? You've come a long way since the little girl who used to make hand turkeys.
Excuse me, that was art.
It was cute.
I'll give you that.
That's why I saved it.
Yeah, it's great that she saved your painting.
It's not so great that she's been lying to you for years.
- Vanessa.
- What is she talking about? Yeah, what am I talking about, Mom? Wait.
Mom? She's your - You're my - We're sisters.
Oh, hell no.
Stepsisters.
Time for dessert.
- Straight from the binder.
- Thank you, Darren.
Once again, I want to thank you all for making it.
I don't know where I'll be this time next year, but hopefully it'll be right here with all of you.
In the meantime, I'm making you president of the Carrington Foundation, Adam.
When did you become - such a softie? - I'm going on trial for murder.
It has a way of making you look at things from a different perspective.
- He has a point.
- Mm.
Yeah, it shouldn't take that to make you realize that being with the ones you love is important.
And no matter what has happened God knows we've been through our share of drama and backstabbings that's the past.
And just the thought that we're here together, despite everything, that is enough to keep me going.
You okay? Yeah.
To family.
What about really old friends and father figures who wish to return? Oh, there's nothing I'd like more.
- Darren.
- Hmm? You're fired.
I thought you wanted to poison Cristal in Blake's eyes.
But when you had the chance I know, I'm, I'm as surprised as you, actually.
All I know is something happened when she said I was a better person.
She's right.
I think you're pretty great.
Yeah? Well, you've been a good influence.
I'm glad you're here.
Mmm.
Me, too.
First thing you need is a gag order on that prosecutor.
And then if you can share with me all the details you have on the jury selection, - I can help.
- Yeah, let's worry about that tomorrow.
Right now I would kill to have a Manhattan with you.
It's the one thing that your replacement couldn't get right, even when he went to the binder.
Well, to be honest, I did put the recipe in the binder, but I left out my secret ingredient.
Love.
Oh, uh, well I'm just joking, sir.
I'm joking.
Cinnamon.
I left out the cinnamon.
Love.
- What's that? - It's ice cream.
Like in The Notebook, which we can watch right now.
Okay, all right, we'll watch it later.
But you should take the London job if you want it.
Landon killed it.
You know, after my girlfriend shot him in the ass.
Am I still your girlfriend? Okay, all right.
Yeah, not the point.
I got it.
But I did sneak a look at your piece and I loved it.
It'd be perfect for the magazine.
But instead of keeping it for myself, I sent it out to a couple different editors and publishers.
So your phone will probably be ringing all weekend.
Thank you, I think.
And you were right.
I was afraid of beginning again.
But then I thought, if we do, then we can make new memories.
You know? And forget the bad ones.
Bad ones? The point is, if you are willing to start over, so am I.
So, take Hi.
I'm Fallon.
I'm Liam.
Okay.
Adam.
I wanted to talk to you.
Me, too.
I just want to say thank you for everything you did today.
And I'm so glad that we could move past our differences.
Do you honestly think I didn't know what you were up to? I'm confused.
The minute my car broke down, I knew it was you.
I just didn't know how.
But I saw you and Nadia together, and then it all made sense.
I didn't say anything because I didn't want to hurt Blake.
But trust me, you won't be here for long.
So watch your step.
Or I guess that's what your girlfriend is for, right? So? How's it going? He said he loves me.
I've got him wrapped around my little finger.
Just like you wanted.
Perfect.
Something we can all be thankful for.
