Glum, Connor tells them he’s not going.

Chelsea suggests they look at the website. Connor doesn’t get why it matters.

They just want to send him away. Adam says he means everything to him and more.

Chelsea calls him the best thing that’s ever happened to them.

“Even if I’m crazy?” Adam says he is not. Connor doesn’t think he needs help.

He’s confused and isn’t sure what’s real or made up in his head.

Adam and Chelsea look concerned.

Adam’s sorry, knowing it’s hard.

They’d do anything to make things better. This place in Maryland is it. They explain there are kids his age with OCD.

Kids he can talk to about this. They’ll visit and go sight seeing.

Connor decides to give it a shot but if he hates it, will they make him stay?

They agree to pull him out if he only gives it a chance. “Okay. I’ll try,” he says.

Chelsea calls him her sweet boy and Adam calls to confirm they’re on the way.

Adam hugs his son and promises life will get better.

“I love you.” Connor sadly nods and Chelsea takes him away. 

connor is convinced

Sally appears at the door.

They sit together and he tells her what happened.

He doesn’t want this for him.

He wants Connor to be happy but feels guilty.

Sally assures Adam he’s a good parent but he doesn’t see it.

He thinks he passed dysfunction on to his kid. Sally denies it.

Adam says they’re leaving tonight. Chelsea is helping him to pack now.

Sally’s glad. He’s being brave and will get through this. Adam isn’t sure.

It’s tearing him apart. Chelsea returns and Sally’s glad she saw her before she left.

Chelsea thanks her for helping Adam through this.

Sally can’t imagine what they’re all going through. Connor’s a good kid.

Sally invites Chelsea to call her anytime for anything which Chelsea’s ever so grateful for.

She’s glad Sally’s in Adam’s life.

They hold hands and sing kumbaya before Chelsea goes back upstairs and Sally hugs Adam before he leaves.

Abbott mansion

Diane arrives home early, knowing she’d find Kyle there.

He’s still waiting to find a nanny and had to pick Harrison up from school.

He’s with Mrs. Martinez. Diane calls his son lucky to have a caring father.

Harrison wants him to be his nanny.

kyle listens to diane Y&R recaps

Kyle explained he has a full-time job and thinks transitions are tough for kids.

Diane agrees he’s had his fill. Talk turns to Kyle showing her up at work.

He rewrote some of the presentation she’s spearheading.

He can’t override her work and put his seal of approval on it. It’s unacceptable. What was he thinking?

He thought it felt rushed. This angers Diane off. He was proofreading and thought he was doing her a favor.

diane yells at kyle for underminding her Y&R

She says he should have come to her and shared his thoughts.

She’d have made changes if she wanted to. He blindsided her.

Kyle thinks she’s blowing this out of proportion.

kyle defends himself

“Excuse me?!” Diane yells. He didn’t think it was a big deal.

Diane says sure, if it was the first time it happened but it’s been one thing after another. Kyle claims he always has someone proof his work too.

She snaps that he’s looking over her shoulder at every turn.

He thought she welcomed that. She reminds him she’s his superior. “Forgive me if I overstepped,” Kyle says.

Diane calms down and apologizes. She shouldn’t have said things in the manner she did.

diane snaps at Kyle

She should have addressed her concerns sooner.

Kyle can’t get over her reminding him that she’s his superior.

She thinks he sounds like he resents her and he thinks he has advice worth taking. She agrees he does.

It’s why she’s cautious and wants to push through this.

She suggests they get lunch and discuss it but he takes off for the office instead.

Newman Ranch

At the ranch, Victoria and Claire sit on the sofa and talk about having a stress-free day.

This is a first, especially for Claire.

Claire suggests lunch without security guards.

Nikki saunters in, very upset. Jordan’s had some kind of seizure and is in stable condition.

The medical emergency is delaying her transfer into the maximum security prison.

Claire worries she’s purposefully delaying this.

She’d have checked out the possible side effects of the toxin and would know it’d cause a seizure.

Victoria agrees she took it on purpose. Nikki thinks she’s trying to come up with her next move.

This is why Claire wanted to leave her in the dungeon.
