P&P will be starting shortly!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Hello and welcome to Episode 22 of the Passionate & The Privileged! Previously on P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia blindsided TJ during the urgent Randolph family meeting, driving him to storm out, leaving Lyle alone to tend to his mother. Again.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta invited virtual sweetheart Meatbroker96 to the Berkshires for a romantic weekend away, only to be stood up.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Overwhelmed by the rejection, Meta sought solace in a few drinks before reaching out to Simone over the phone.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Okay, maybe more than a few.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Worried Meta might do something stupid, Simone decided to drive to the Berkshires to rescue her. Only it was getting dark.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone can’t drive in the dark. Hmm…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Who does she know that will be there for her, even when she is meant to be taking a little space? Oh, that’s right…

Episode 22 “Family Matters

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Nevermind, you can tell me in the car.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *sits up* Really? Would you?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Only if you promise to let me drive.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Later in Simone’s Lexus... Simone now sits in the passenger’s seat, Brynn gets into the driver’s seat and shuts the door.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn assesses Simone, who looks a wreck.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone What am I going to do with you?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone smiles at Brynn affectionately as Brynn starts the car and pulls out of the parking lot.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
We dissolve to Brynn and Simone driving north up a tree-lined highway.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone quietly gazes at Brynn’s magnificent profile accentuated by the dazzling sunset behind it.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *murmurs* You must have regal blood in you, Brynn. With a face like that.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Are you going to do this the whole drive?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I just realized don’t know a thing about your lineage. What’s your descent?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I’d say western European. Your mother’s French, but your father was... English? Scottish?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn tenses while Simone studies her face intently.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn No, Irish. Yes, that’s it. Am I right?


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *pleased* I knew it. Tell me more. About your family. Where you’re from. I want to know everything about you.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Do you have siblings?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn nods. Her mind scrambles to think of what to say.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn You never talk about them. Why?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I... it’s hard. To talk about my family.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *concerned* Are you estranged?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *wells up* You could say that.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Oh, no... I’m sorry, I’ll stop.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone grabs Brynn’s hand and gives it a comforting squeeze. Brynn entwines her fingers with Simone’s and keeps it there.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I want to tell you everything. And I will. It’s just... complicated.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *laughs* Yes, well, if there’s one thing I understand, it’s complicated family.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Just know you can talk to me about anything. When you’re ready.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meanwhile - at RANDOLPH ESTATES...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia has crumpled into a giant leather chair. Lyle comes back into the living room and hands his mother a drink. She sips.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandplyle*quietly* After two centuries. This family has fallen apart on my watch, Lyle. I can only blame myself.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandplydia It’s just a different time. They don’t understand.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia grabs Lyle’s hands with her wrinkly reminders of how old she really is.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandplyle *whispers* Thank God, for you, son. You’re all I’ve got.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
At the Randolph Retreat - Dark clouds shadow the twinkling stars in the open sky. Brynn and Simone wait anxiously at the giant wooden door.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *panicked* She’s not answering.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone bangs the door with her fist. Beat. Finally, it swings open.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta stands in the doorway still wearing her wrinkled cocktail dress. She appears to have sobered up.



Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta She was kind enough to drive me.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn walks forward and gives Meta a comforting hug. Meta seems surprised but appreciative.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmeta I heard you were having a rough night.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpBrynn *sheepish*I guess you could call it that.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone looks at Meta’s giant mole. The skin surrounding it looks red.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta What have you done to your...

Meta Randolph pandpmeta


Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone I don’t want to talk about it. *motions* C’mon, girls. Let’s go inside.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Inside, Brynn marvels as Meta leads them through the lavish retreat towards the grand central living room.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
A fire crackles in the massive fireplace. A giant painting of John Randolph hangs above it.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn stares at it, reminded of just how surreal her circumstance are.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Simone, I’m really sorry I put this on you, it was so out of line.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta What are friends for? So, shall we get your things?

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone We can’t drive back tonight. There’s supposed to be a terrible storm.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone frowns and looks out the window.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta The weather looks fine.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Trust me, it’s going to be bad. I just checked online.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta walks into the giant kitchen.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone I already called Lyle and told him his wife was my fucking hero.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone They’re so embroiled in that stupid Logan mess, he couldn't have cared less.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn feels the blood rush to her head.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Anyway, we’ve got extra everything here. I promise to make it fun.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta returns with a fresh bottle of wine and three glasses.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone turns to Brynn, silently giving her a “What should we do?” look.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmeta Have you eaten anything?

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpBrynn *uncorks the wine* Mmm... I don’t remember.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I think we should stay... and make Meta dinner. We can drive back tomorrow.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meanwhile at Randolph Estates... Lydia studies the plastic straw in her drink. Beat. Lyle speaks softly.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandplydia Just tell me. I need to get my mind wrapped around whatever this Logan claim is.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia closes her eyes. When she opens them... they look watery. Lyle looks shocked. He rarely sees his mother cry.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandplyle I don’t even know how to begin, really. Well. I suppose I do. With that... slut. The dirty Logan whore who did this...

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandplydia Which dirty Logan whore?

Lydia Randolph pandplydia

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandplydia Patrick Logan’s wife?

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandplyle When she spawned her murderous son Arthur Logan... *looks away* Oh, Rosalee...

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandplydia Don’t think about that, Mother... go on...

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandplyle There was another... a twin... a boy...

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandplydia *tries to remain calm* Arthur has a twin?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia nods and chews on her plastic straw.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandplyle Who’s come back for us. To finish the job... for her... *heaving sob* HE HAS A CLAIM.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandplyle Because... *chokes up* he has our BLOOD SON. HE HAS OUR BLOOD!

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandplydia *turns pale* What... what are you saying, I don’t understand...

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandplyle Those devil’s children weren’t fathered by Patrick Logan, Lyle...

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandplydia Who... were they fathered by?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia grasps the edge of the chair, gnawing on the plastic straw until she gags on it.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandplyle Their father... is your father, Lyle. My poor sweet husband! Seduced by that harlot! Oh, Lyle... *sobs*

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandplyle That Logan bastard Jace Anderson... is YOUR BROTHER...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meanwhile at the Randolph Retreat... Simone and Meta sit at the giant wooden table sipping wine.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn sets down a plate of perfectly assembled hors d’oeuvres.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone @pandpmeta This should get you started.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn rushes back to the kitchen. Meta takes a bite.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpBrynn *loudly* Mmm. These are divine, Brynn!

Meta Randolph pandpmeta


Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone See, now that’s what I’m talking about. Look at Brynn.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone She’s drop dead gorgeous, charming, smart, great with kids AND she can cook. How can I compete with that?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta She’s rare, Meta. You have your own set of gifts.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta watches Brynn bustle in the kitchen. Ponders.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Do you ever wonder why she’s not seeing anybody?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta I suppose she’s waiting for the right person.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone I guess she has that luxury.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
AND LATER... The women finish Brynn’s gourmet dinner, now well into their second bottle of wine. Meta’s cheered up. And tipsy again.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
Hey, I know how I can reel that bastard back in. I’ll use Brynn’s pic as my avatar. HA!

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmeta *laughs* Sorry, I want no part of your MeatBroker revenge plot.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpBrynn OMG, Brynn. Did Simone tell you about our “lesbian” encounter the other day?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta *embarrassed* Meta, I don’t think we need to...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn looks at Simone, amused.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone C’mon, Simone, admit it. You were obsessing about lesbians. Poor Lyle, HA!

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta That’s really quite enough!

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *firmly* Simone, let Meta have a little fun. She’s had a rough day. Remember?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone reluctantly sheds her annoyance and smiles.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpBrynn Thanks. She’s so damn uptight. We’ve gotta loosen her up. I know, let’s all get wet!

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
*leaps up* Spa time, ladies! It’s been heated all day for stupid MeatBroke. I’d enjoy it soooo much more with you two.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Don’t you think that’s a terrible idea? BRYNN?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn looks down as Meta and Simone wait for her response.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpBrynn *pouts* C’mon now, don’t let me down.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmeta Maybe for a little while?

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
Eggcellent! Grab the wine, I’ll get the suits!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
TO BE CONTINUED

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
COMING UP TUESDAY, MAY 24th on an all new P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Romance bubbles in the BERKSHIRES...

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
See how nice it would have been for that ash hole?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta gets misty-eyed. She drowns it with a sip of wine. Brynn puts her arm around Meta, comforting her.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmeta He didn’t deserve you.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpBrynn *choked up* You think?


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta nods and looks at Brynn. Then winks at Simone.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone I could go Joyce VanWyck on this one.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
IN THE RANDOLPH RETREAT GUEST BEDROOM...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn pats the bed next to her. Simone rushes over and leaps on it. Brynn is silent for a long beat.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone You can sleep here but I will never forgive you if we have an incident. I’m serious. It can’t happen.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone You want to watch the end of the movie?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn But do you think it will ever happen?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
AND IN THE STEAMING SPA...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn dips herself into the water.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Within seconds, Brynn’s standing in front of Simone, her body glistening out of the bubbles.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone My heart’s not as pure as you think.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone is eye level with Brynn’s wet stomach. It rises and falls as she breathes.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Mesmerized, Simone reaches her hand up to feel... it jolts at her touch.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *breathless* See? Not easy for me either.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Thank you for watching! We’ll see you on Tuesday, May 24th at 3PM EST as the romance heats up on P&P!
