P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Hello and welcome to Episode 8 of the Passionate & The Privileged! Previously on P & P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Jace moved into the Logan Manor after being invited by Brynn to stay. Arthur wasn’t convinced it was a good idea.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Arthur still lives in the cellar.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle impressed Senator Adams with his political savvy and was invited to D.C. for further meetings about broadband opportunities.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Despite things looking up for Lyle in his work life, he seemed to be at odds with his wife, Simone.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle thought he was doing the right thing by firing Brynn; it was what Simone wanted. But Simone was furious when she found out.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone promised Brynn it was a terrible misunderstanding and pleaded for her to return. But Brynn wasn’t buying it.

P & P EPISODE 8

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone What the hell is your problem?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *choked up* Please, you have to let me explain.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone You’re faking. I don’t believe you’re capable of feeling anything.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I have wondered that myself. But then I remind myself I love Max. I do. You saw that, didn’t you?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn You’re the best thing that’s come into his life in a long time. I would never take that away from him.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn rubs her forehead. She doesn’t want to give in.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I need you... to give me another chance. I can be better. I promise you that. Please.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
THE NEXT MORNING in the RANDOLPH KITCHEN - Simone watches Max eat cereal. She looks tired.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax Will you ever speak to me again?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max shakes his head. The doorbell rings. Max leaps up and runs out. He yells from the foyer:

Max Randolph pandpmax
Bwynn’s back!

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
*closes her eyes* Oh, thank God.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmax *hugs Max* Hi you! What did I miss yesterday?

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpBrynn Mommy got me a Dr. Stephen Hawking action figure because she felt bad! Wanna see?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn enters the kitchen. Simone gets up and hugs Brynn tightly with no pretense.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *whispers* Thank you.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Later that afternoon at the HUNSTON HILL HOSPITAL…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia marches through the waiting room, puffing on a cigarette. The NURSE behind the desk stands up.

Nurse pandpnurse
@pandplydia Excuse me Ma’am? Ma’am! You can’t smoke in here.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia stops and walks back. She stares down the NURSE before dropping her lit cigarette into the Nurse’s COFFEE.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandpnurse Don’t forget I’m on the board of this socialist institution.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
A tall, gorgeous African American man, DR. JAMES BISHOP walks up.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
He wears designer jeans under his white doctor’s coat. He’d give Tyson Beckford a run for his money.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandplydia Now, Lydia, you be nice to my new floor nurse, okay?

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandpdrbishop Oh, Dr. Bishop. You look wonderful in denim.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandplydia Oh, yeah? *chuckles* You can thank the socialists for that too. They let me wear them to work. C’mon, Tex is awake.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Moments later Dr. Bishop and Lydia enter the HOSPITAL ROOM. A COMATOSE MAN, (late 50’s) lies on a bed.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
It’s TEX MAYFIELD. Lydia’s 3rd and final husband!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
A bouquet sits in the corner - a giant mylar balloon in the shape of a RODEO BULL floats above it.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandplydia Your balloons arrived this morning. I’ll leave you two alone.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Dr. Bishop leaves. Lydia sits by Tex’s bedside, takes his hand.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Once a handsome man, Tex looks frail and childlike. He stares into space, spittle drips from his crusted lips.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
Happy Birthday, my love.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
We cut to SIMONE'S GREENHOUSE. The greenhouse is filled with rare and exotic orchids.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone wears gloves, checks a calendar. Grabs a plastic jug marked RAINWATER DO NOT DRINK and soaks a few plants.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Through the glass she sees Brynn playing catch with Max on the lawn.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone smiles. After a beat, she pokes her head out of the door.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax Max! Your father will be home soon, go inside and wash your hands.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn nods and walks Max back into the house.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone motions. Brynn walks back over to the greenhouse.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I thought maybe you’d like to see some of these? My orchids?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Oh, sure. But I warn you, I can’t even manage to keep a house fern alive.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone*looks around* They all look so beautiful.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *proud* I do have one of the finest collections in the state.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn admires a few orchids. Stops at a REDDISH ORANGE one.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn That’s a Phragmipedium or phrag for short. Don Wimber is the clonal name.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I’ll pretend to understand what you’re talking about.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *laughs* At least you’ll pretend. Lyle makes it clear he would just as soon sell them all and buy another boat we’ll never use.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone They’re worth that much?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Depends. That Don Wimber would sell for oh, $2500 or so... this one is worth much more.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone leads Brynn over to a giant bucket. Inside, a strange looking WHITE ORCHID has its roots wrapped around a log.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The women bend down, their faces inches apart. Brynn stares in awe. Simone watches her, pleased.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Dendrophylax lindenii. More commonly known as The Ghost Orchid. One of the rarest orchids in the world.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone It’s so tiny. It must be worth a fortune.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn It’s priceless really. An endangered species. You can only buy the seeds. Which is how I grew that one.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn It took 3 years to flower.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I think I want to be a ghost orchid in my next life. It must be amazing to have someone care about you that much.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Later that evening inside HUNSTON HILL HOSPITAL, Lydia sits with Tex.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Dr. Bishop knocks. Lydia nods.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandplydia My shift is over. I need to talk to you about something before I leave.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
Fifteen years ago today it happened. God forbid he wakes up.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
You’d have to rush me into emergency cosmetic surgery to save my marriage!

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandplydia Lydia. There have been some problems with Tex. His lungs...

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandpdrbishop *alarmed* What about his lungs?

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandplydia He’s developed an infection. This can happen after long term ventilator use.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandplydia He’s formed allergies to most appropriate antibiotics over the years.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandplydia We’ve started him on a new one, but there also may be damage...

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandpdrbishop Doctor, the bush is dead from you beating around it. Spit it out.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandplydia Unless Tex responds to this last cycle, there’s not much we can do. I’m sorry.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia’s eyes turn stone cold. She grabs her cigarettes from her purse and lights one up... she takes a long drag.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Over at the RANDOLPH HOUSE in the DINING ROOM - Lyle, Simone and Max eat dinner prepared by Chef Rodolfo.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle I had Brynn drop off your tux at the cleaners.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle gives her a blank stare.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle T.J.’s charity gala? For the Historical Society?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Oh, God, right. I can’t go. I was just about to tell you the good news!

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Senator Adams invited me down to D.C. for a couple days. I leave tomorrow.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle Don’t do this to me.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone It’s business. I need to pull Randolph Media out of a tailspin. You’ll go on your own. T.J. will understand.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle You know I can’t drive at night!

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpmax *eyes Max* Hey Buddy, you almost finished?

Max Randolph pandpmax
Are you guys gonna fight now?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
No. @pandplyle So, you expect me to handle Max alone the whole time you’re gone.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone It’s one night. Mother’s taking him the night of the gala, remember?

Max Randolph pandpmax
Yay, Gwamma Randolph lets me count her cigawette cartons!

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone They’re just cartons, Simone.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle And how, pray, will I get to the gala?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone You could take a cab...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle I’m not taking a cab wearing Chanel!

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Then we’ll hire a car. No, scratch that. We’ll have Brynn, the highest paid nanny in Hunston Hill drive you.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone It’s the least she can do.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
TO BE CONTINUED....

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Coming up on TUESDAY APRIL 5th on P & P…

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Popcorn… Soda… Raisinettes?! *laughs* What is all this?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Lyle left for D.C. on business this morning. So, I was thinking…

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone That you’d stock up on junk food?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I was thinking maybe instead of you going home... we could have a girls night. Here. Just the two of us.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Later that night at the RANDOLPH ESTATES on LYDIA’S TERRACE…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia smokes in the dark on her huge private terrace. The cherry glows red as she inhales. Restless, she gets up.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia walks over to a giant potted plant. She stares at the moist soil, distraught. She dips her fingers in, feeling the dirt.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
Not again. It can’t happen again.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Thank you for watching! We'll see you for more P & P action TUESDAY APRIL 5th!!!
