P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Welcome to SEASON 2 EPISODE 7 of the Passionate & The Privileged. Previously on P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn admitted fearing she’d go back to Simone if they spoke. When Arthur pointed out a local TV news anchor to Brynn, she seemed shocked.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max ran into Brynn at Creston’s Grocery. He caught one of Brynn’s tears on his finger and she whispered she loved him.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn told Lyle she’d sent back his check for saving Max’s life. Shortly after, Brynn got a flat tire and almost called Simone.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Fallan Logan surprised Senator Adams at The Federalist, insisting she watch his meeting with Lyle Randolph from the bar.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
At homework time, Max told his heartbroken mother about running into Brynn. Even though his dad told him not to.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
When Simone became emotional, Max comforted her, insisting Brynn was sending a message that she loved them both.

EPISODE 207- LOVE'S DOORSTEP

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone lies in bed, lost in thought until she hears the front door close. She quickly turns on her side as Lyle enters.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone listens as he performs his usual routine getting ready for bed. He climbs in. Beat.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone So the meeting with Senator Adams went great, he agreed to my plan. Thanks for asking.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle Let’s not fight. Not tonight.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone I didn’t know we were.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone looks at Lyle. He seems so familiar, yet almost a stranger now. The revelation frightens her.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle Lyle, are you happy? With how your life turned out?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone What kind of question is that?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle stares at Simone, baffled by her getting so deep.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone My life isn’t over yet, Simone.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle Should I take that as a No?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Of course, I’m happy. I have a beautiful home, a beautiful wife and a son I’m proud of.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle But do the things you have make you happy? Do you look forward to coming home? To this house? To your son? To me?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone *scowls* What the hell is with you?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle Because I think you deserve to be happy. Everyone does.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone You get to be happy when you’re a kid and when you retire.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone The rest of the time we have to do things we don’t want to. We have responsibilities.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle If you were happy, the responsibilities might not seem like a chore? Maybe you’d want to do them?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone *rolls over* This conversation is exhausting me. I’m happy, okay?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone flips off the light. Looks at Lyle in the dark, her eyes filled with sadness.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The next morning in the Randolph kitchen, Simone buzzes around. She writes something on what looks to be a very long list.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max enters, wearing a baseball jersey and cap. Simone gives him a kiss.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax Good morning, darling! Ready to go watch the big game?

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpSimone Not weally. I wish I could go to the Science Fair.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax Next year, Max. We’ll go, I promise.

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpSimone You’d go? I don’t think so.


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max smiles knowing his mother is definitely feeling better.

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpSimone What are you doing today?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax Oh, car wash, hair appointment, mani-pedi, maybe a facial... and some other things. A pretty big day for Mommy.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max grins. Lyle enters wearing jeans and his own jersey.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle


Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone We’ll probably have dinner at the club. Should be back by 9...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
That afternoon, outside Logan Manor, Jace has repaired the massive iron gate, which is closed.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone’s Lexus slowly pulls up to the intercom box. The car window glides down.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone looks stunning, her hair and makeup are impeccable. She’s fully restored back to her normal self.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone stares nervously at the gate, her mind screaming to put the car in reverse.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Instead, she takes a deep breath and bravely presses the intercom button. Jace’s voice crackles through the speaker.

Jace Anderson pandpjace

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
Simone Randolph.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpjace *loudly* Simone. Randolph.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpSimone What are you doing out there?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpjace *loudly* Brynn wouldn’t take my calls.

Jace Anderson pandpjace

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The intercom goes silent. Finally...

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpSimone Brynn can’t see you.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpjace *loudly* Yes, I know. But I need to see her.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Another long silence. Sound of scrambling. A thump.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpSimone This is crazy. She can’t see you! You have to go, okay?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpjace *loudly* I’m sorry, I’m not going anywhere. I will block this driveway until Christmas if I have to.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone waits. Then, for the first time, in what seems like an eternity, she hears Brynn’s voice.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Simone. Don’t do this.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *loudly* I just need to say a few things and we’ll be done. It won’t take long.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *loudly* I need closure, Brynn. I think you owe me that. Please.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Beat. The massive gate slowly swings open. Simone looks down the long intimidating driveway filled with dread.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meanwhile, at Hunston Hill General... Lydia nibbles on a stub of oversized chalk watching her vegetative third husband, Tex Mayfield.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Tex looks gaunt, staring into space. Lydia slips the stub into her pocket as Dr. Bishop enters.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandplydia Sorry about the wait, Lydia, the lab was having a problem with their fax.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandpdrbishop *shrugs* I’m in no hurry to hear the results.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandplydia *smiles* Lydia, the infection’s cleared up. Looks like Tex has some fight left in him.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia’s eyes become watery as she takes in the good news. She leans back in relief.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandpdrbishop You have no idea how sick I’ve been with worry, doctor, my stomach has been giving me terrible pain.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandplydia *concerned* Well, that’s not good. We should look into that...

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandpdrbishop NO! I’ll be fine now. I’m sure it will go away. I just couldn’t bear the idea of losing my sweet angel.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandplydia *nods* But if you keep feeling pain, I need to run some tests. I don’t want you ending up in the room next door, okay?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Dr. Bishop turns and leaves. Lydia sits back down and grabs Tex’s frail hand. She kisses it, whispering in his ear...

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
You always were a fighter, weren’t you? You don’t have to wake up but if you leave me... It will kill me, Tex, do you understand?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Tex blinks. Lydia pops out of her chair as if she’s seen a ghost. Beat. She leans down again.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
Tex? Darling? Can you hear me?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Tex blinks again. Lydia starts to shake.

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
Oh... MY GOD. Doctor? DOCTOR!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
At Logan Manor, Simone parks behind Brynn’s car, and gets out.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Logan Manor is the stuff of fiction for Simone, who is shocked by the state of disrepair.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Vines strangle the walls, the horse stable roof has caved, rust and peeling paint everywhere.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn comes out of the front door, barefoot, in jeans and a white T-shirt. Her natural beauty still takes Simone’s breath away.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn stops at the top of the steps, about ten feet away. She gives Simone a sad smile.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Thank you. This was the only way I could think of.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone It’s okay. I understand.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Should I come up there?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I think we’re good like this.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone clears her throat, nervously.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn First, I apologize for the terrible things I said when we last spoke.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn My jealously about Jace was nothing short of absurd and clearly I should seek counseling for my problem.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn cracks a smile and looks down.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn For not trusting you, for thinking about myself on a day when I should have been thinking about you.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn For throwing a fit about my orchid, which is growing back, by the way...


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn If you plant the stem, sometimes they will. *tiny smile* It should flower again by next year.


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn’s interruption flusters Simone.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I... what was the last thing I apologized for? Before the orchid?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone For thinking about yourself when you should have been thinking about me.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Oh, yes. I apologize for saying hurtful things about your family. Regardless of our history, they are your family.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn’s eyes look glassy with tears. Simone rushes to finish before she gets upset.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn For hurting you in general, which I know I did many times, for being selfish, for liking Michael Bolton...

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *laughs* You don’t have to apologize for that.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn For slamming the door in your face the day we met...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn And lastly, for not appreciating that the most beautiful person I’ve ever known cared about me and my son.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn wipes tears. Simone presses on, less rehearsed.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I understand why you chose to end things. It’s an impossible situation, we both know that. The problem is... the problem is...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone looks down. Brynn waits patiently. Simone gathers her courage and looks Brynn straight in the eye.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn The problem is, Brynn... I’m in love with you.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn blinks a few times but says nothing.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn So, it’s been difficult to accept... *voice quivers* That you won’t be in my life.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Worse, I have convinced myself that you might love me too.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn listens quietly, her face impossible to read.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I can’t seem to let you go. Because love isn’t something you toss away for family or anything else.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn It’s very special and I’m not even sure I’ve felt it before now.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone finds it impossible to hold back tears.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn What I need to know, Brynn, is how you feel.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn If you don’t love me, I’ll accept it. I’ll get in my car and leave your life forever.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn But if you do love me... I think we should give it a chance. It may not work out, but at least we didn’t toss it away.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone exhales. Steels herself.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn So. Do you love me, Brynn?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone looks down and waits. Brynn remains silent.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone feels her heart slowly shattering, the pain overwhelms her.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *quietly* Okay. Thank you.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone walks back to her car, numb. She turns to take one last look at Brynn.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
But Brynn’s no longer on the porch. She’s heading straight for Simone, tears streaming down her face. Nodding.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Simone! Stop! I said, yes... yes!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn throws herself into Simone’s arms, slamming her against the car...

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *whispers* Of course, I’m in love with you...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn kisses her deeply and Simone’s world disappears. After weeks of intense heartache, Brynn’s love rushing through her feels like a drug.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Soon the sensation of being caught between the car and Brynn’s body mercilessly pressing into her becomes unbearable.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone can barely remain standing. She can’t wait one more second.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *breathless* Invite me in...

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *breathless* Here? Are you sure?


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn nods and grabs Simone’s hand. And for the first time in decades, a Randolph steps inside Logan Manor.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
TO BE CONTINUED...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Coming up THURSDAY JULY 28th on P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
At Logan Manor... Simone lies in Brynn’s arms, trying to remember if she’s ever felt happier.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I’ll never be the same, you know. I believe you may have rearranged my molecules...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn squeezes Simone tight. Her cell beeps. Brynn reaches over and grabs it. Reads a text. Laughs and starts typing.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Jace. Wondering if you abducted me.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn What are you telling him?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone That we’re working things out and to not disturb us until tomorrow.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
And later, in the Randolph foyer, Simone makes for the stairs when the light flips on. Lyle stands there, his arms crossed.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle *startled* You’re hardly one to talk about coming home late.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Where were you? Everything’s closed.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Thanks for watching P&P. Join us on THURSDAY JULY 28th as the romance becomes scorching on Twitter’s hottest soap!
