Today's P&P will start at 3PM EST!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Hello and welcome to SEASON 2 EPISODE 5 of the Passionate & The Privileged. Previously on P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone’s best laid plans to be at Brynn’s side when she woke from anesthesia were squelched. By her husband Lyle.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone doesn’t know that Lyle witnessed the kiss that sealed her emotional confession to Brynn in her recovery room.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
In Brynn’s absence, Jace has been taking a hard line with Arthur. Suffice to say, it hasn’t improved their relationship.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
When she finally arrived at the hospital, Simone was told she’d been taken off Brynn’s visitation list. She was understandably distraught.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
In her car, Simone was unable to drive without flipping the bird through her tears.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
So Simone placed a desperate call to Meta, who invited her over for coffee.

EPISODE 5 - LAY IT ON ME

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
In Meta’s condo, Meta walks up and gives Simone a long hug. Simone starts to sob in Meta’s arms, dropping her clutch purse to the floor.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone *soothing* Simone, what the hell? I’ve never seen you like this.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta Oh, God... I think I’m... going to lose it...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta leads Simone over to the couch and help her sit down.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone It’s okay, I’m here.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta I’m... sorry... for... barging...

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Please, I owe you big time. Frankly, I’m excited to hear about what’s gotten you this worked up.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Did you find out Lyle’s a member of Hair Club For Men, or...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta *laughs and cries* If only it were that simple.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
At Logan Manor, Jace opens the giant front door for Brynn, who limps inside. He comes around, offering his shoulder for support.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace Honestly, it’s just stiff. It doesn’t even hurt that much.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Jace doesn’t move. Brynn rolls her eyes, puts her arm around his shoulder. He helps her up the staircase to her room.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Back at Meta’s condo, Simone and Meta are on the couch, sipping coffee.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Okay. So lay it on me.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Now calm, Simone finds herself more reluctant to talk.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta I don’t even know where to begin.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone How about telling me what just caused you to have a Class A freakout?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta Max almost got hit by a car, Brynn saved him and she almost died.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone *shocked* Oh my God. Lyle didn't tell me. Definitely freakout-worthy. *sips* But she’s okay?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta Yes, but I’m not allowed to visit her in the hospital.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta *blurts* Meta, I have feelings for her.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta calmly sets down her cup.



P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta stares at Simone blankly.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone So... you’re attracted to her?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta *nods* Once we kissed it became unbearable.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone *jaw drops* Brynn’s into you too?!

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta *annoyed* Of course she is! She kissed me at the retreat as a matter of fact.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Thoughts of kissing Brynn makes Simone’s body melt.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta *chokes up* No. But we wanted to... you see? That’s the problem...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta shakes her head in disbelief. She leaps up and paces, unable to hold still. Then bursts out laughing.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Simone Randolph... damn! Who would have thought?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta Well, it’s hardly funny!

Meta Randolph pandpmeta

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta *upset* It’s been really hard. On both of us.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta becomes serious again. Or at least tries. She hands Simone a tissue.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone I’m sure it has, but you haven’t done anything. A few kisses gets a pass. Lyle never needs to know.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta *sobs* You don’t understand. I want to be with her, Meta... I love her... I’m sure of it...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
In Brynn’s room, Brynn hobbles over to her bed. Jace pulls a few medications out of a pharmacy bag, reading the labels.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn You have to take this one with food. I’ll try to whip up something. Hey, do you have a bar-b-que?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace Back by what used to be the pool. I doubt you’ll find it.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn *closes the curtains* I’ve been doing some repairs. Got the sprinkler system working. Fixing the gate tomorrow.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace That thing hasn’t worked in years.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn I bet it this place used to be beautiful.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace Oh, it was, Jace. *remembers* I used to love coming back from summer break.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace Mom had it seasonally landscaped so something was always in bloom. Papa collected cars, he had a 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO...

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn Wow. They only made a few of those...

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace I only remember the model because he talked about it so much. He loved that thing. He parked it in the middle of the driveway...

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace ... so the maple tree wouldn’t ruin the paint. *sighs* Anyway, I wish you could have seen it here while we were growing up.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn Yeah, well. Lydia Randolph took that away from me. But, it turns out I’m a pretty handy guy.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn If I see something’s broken... I fix it.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Jace walks out. Beat. Brynn’s cell rings. It’s Simone. Brynn looks away, sadly. Finally, the rings stop.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
In the condo, Meta and Simone now sit on bar stools in Meta’s kitchen. Simone hangs up. Shakes her head. Meta frowns.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone You sure she checked out of the hospital?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone You really think she’d just cut you out of her life like that?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta I suppose I’d understand if she did.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone My mother would disown me for saying it, but maybe you should just sleep with her.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone If it feels right, if she makes you happy, I guess you could leave Lyle...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta leaps up, overwhelmed by her own suggestion.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Jesus. I need a drink. Want one?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone shakes her head. Meta mixes a drink for herself. Takes a long gulp.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta She won’t do it, because of Max. She’s very noble that way.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone How annoying! Why can’t she put herself first like the rest of us?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta It’s who she is. It’s what I love about her. *wells up* Oh, Meta. It would be easier if I didn’t have so many regrets.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta Things I said, things I did. I know she cared about me. I think... she might have even loved me back.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Beat. Meta slams down her drink, startling Simone.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone You know what? Then keep calling her. Don’t buy into all her noble crap. She’s an idiot if she pushes you away.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta I see you’re already drunk.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone When Lyle brought you to my mother’s that first time, I was SHOCKED. You were so out of his league.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone *sips* Simone, let’s face it. You’re hot.


Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone *laughs* Well you are! And if you’re right, if Brynn does love you... she’ll crack.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
That night at the Randolph house, Simone shuts Max’s door and looks down the hall.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
She sees Lyle’s shadow in the light spilling from the bedroom. Beat. She turns and walks downstairs.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
On the couch, Simone sits. Turns on the TV. It blares a sports channel. Simone grabs the remote but can only turn the TV on and off.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Frustrated to tears, she turns it off and throws the remote down. Finds her cell. Scrolls through her contacts to Brynn’s number.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
Please answer... Brynn, I need you... please think of me... please...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone closes her eyes and dials. After a few rings it goes to voice mail. She hangs up and curls into a ball.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
TWO WEEKS LATER...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
At Logan Manor, A LAWN MOWER buzzes loudly outside. The local news on TV is turned up full blast. Brynn enters. Her limp is gone.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Jesus Christ. Can you tell him to stop? I can’t hear the TV!

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur He’s mowing the back lawn. You should be grateful.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn The grass is just gonna grow back.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn looks at Arthur. A flash of anger crosses her face.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur You’ve made your choice, Arthur. Stop resenting Jace for being the person you could have been.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Where the hell did that come from? You think this is a choice?!

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur *stands her ground* I do. I can’t judge you for making it because I know what you’ve been through.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur But, if Jace had gone through the same thing...

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn *explodes* JACE, JACE, JACE! I’m so sick of it, Brynn! He’s NOT one of us, he’s some random guy from Wisconsin!

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn He had the nature but he didn’t have the nurture, and THAT is what makes us who we are!

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn So STOP pretending like he’s part of this family because HE’S NOT!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Arthur folds his arms and goes silent. Beat.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur Well, somehow you got through that without coughing.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn *sullen* It must be all the twigs you let him feed me. Did you know he nailed my window shut?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn’s cell rings. Without looking, she closes her eyes and waits for it to stop.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn What if that was HunstonCare about a job?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur It’s Simone. She’s been calling every day around this time since I got out of the hospital.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn You’re not speaking to her?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn picks up Arthur’s tray and does some tidying.


Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Hate to tell you, I knew she’d show her Randolph colors eventually.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur *snaps* That isn’t it, Arthur. She’s not like that. She’s kind and fragile and probably very hurt and confused right now!

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Then can’t you at least tell her to stop calling?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur *flatly* If I talk to her, I’ll go back to her.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
TO BE CONTINUED...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Coming up THURSDAY JULY 21st on P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
At Logan Manor, Arthur suddenly seems riveted to the local news channel.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn BRYNN. Look at the ANCHOR! On the right. Isn’t that...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn stands frozen.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur Oh, my God. It is her.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
At The Federalist, Senator Adams sits alone at the bar, sipping a drink. A pair of female hands cover his eyes.


Senator Adams pandpsenator
@pandpfallan I’m meeting with Lyle Randolph in ten minutes. Now go back to the hotel, take off that silly dress and run yourself a bath.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
At Creston’s Gourmet Grocery, Brynn hears the patter of familiar feet and turns.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
It’s Max. Skipping from one black tile to the next on the checkerboard linoleum floor. He looks up.


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn drops her basket as Max leaps into her arms. She squeezes him tightly.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmax Oh, my word! I’ve missed you.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Suddenly, from behind them...

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
