P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Hello and welcome to Episode 16 of the Passionate & The Privileged! Previously on P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn took a job as the new nanny for the Randolph family, but omitted one little detail in her interview: that she was A LOGAN.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia received a letter from a legal firm in Wisconsin that could once again flare the fiery feud between the Randolphs and the Logans.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
It was Arthur who noticed his sister Brynn might have feelings for Lyle’s wife, Simone. That hasn’t stopped them from getting very close.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone sought out an expensive distraction in the form of haute couture. Until she ran into her sister-in-law Meta Randolph…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta Randolph is no stranger to martini-induced confessions… but this time, Simone got more than she bargained for.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Episode 16 - "Reality Bites"

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta *annoyed* How would you know anything about lesbians?

Meta Randolph pandpmeta

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta What are you implying?

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Please let me know when you take Queen Victoria off speed dial.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone *sips* Remember Joyce VanWyck?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta Your R.A. at Barnard? Vaguely. You brought her to our New Year’s Eve party.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta nods and sips. Simone’s jaw drops.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta NO. But she was so pretty!

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone *touches her mole* What are you trying to say?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta I just meant... oh, nevermind.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
They both sip silently. Beat.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta *casually* So, what was it like?

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Well, the sex was amazing...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone nearly chokes on her martini.


Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Oh yeah. There’s nothing like it. And no stubble burn is a big plus…

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone *remembers* There was this thing she could do with her...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta OKAY! I get the picture.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone aggressively flags down the Bartender.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone But the emotional part was way too much. All the crying and processing. Frankly, I found it exhausting.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone *shrugs* Men are SO much easier. I mean, who would want to date someone as complicated as themselves?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Later, in the RANDOLPH KITCHEN... Simone pretends to flip through a fashion magazine as she watches Brynn help Max with his homework.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone notes the tiny clover necklace hangs perfectly and finds herself marveling at Brynn’s smooth neck, full lips, her stunning eyes...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Which are now staring back at Simone. Simone fumbles her magazine.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Do you want something from me?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn NO! The necklace, I’m glad it fits.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *smiles* I haven’t taken it off.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone’s heart flutters as Lyle enters in a huff.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
Can’t stay for dinner, Mother’s in a state. I haven’t seen her like this in years.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle Is it the news about Tex?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Worse. She got a letter from an attorney. Something to do with the Logans. She insists they’re coming back to Hunston Hill.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle’s words drop like an atomic bomb. Brynn freezes.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax *alarmed* Max, bath time.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max runs upstairs. Lyle gives Brynn a look.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
NO. Brynn’s staying right where she is. She’s part of this family now.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I’m sure you’ve lived here long enough to know our history with these wretched Logans?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn looks down and nods. Simone looks at Lyle, concerned.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle I thought Fallon was... incapacitated.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Not her. Someone else.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle *scoffs* Aren’t the rest dead or on the run?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle But why would they come back? There’s nothing for them except that uninhabitable estate. I’m surprised it hasn’t been torn down.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Oh, I don’t know. Revenge? That’s what she seems to think.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle Revenge, how? The case was settled legally years ago. They have no claim, they have no money. What could they possibly do?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone Mother’s being cryptic, but she seems to think they could have a new claim. Under new circumstances.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle Are you saying it’s possible the Logans could legally take back Randolph Media Group? Is that what you’re saying?!

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone I’m not saying anything until I get to the bottom of it.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle But should we be worried?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle gives Simone a peck on the forehead, confident.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone No. I’m handling it. I hope it’s nothing, but I’ll do whatever it takes to protect this family.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone They won’t hurt us again. I promise you that.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
LATER, in LOGAN MANOR... Brynn bursts in the door to Arthur's room, startling him.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur Something terrible has happened...

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Back away from the TV! It’s a new episode of Mob Wives. Renee is out for blood...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn flips the TV off.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur Listen to me! Lydia Randolph knows about Jace.


Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur Lyle said she got some sort of legal notice.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn *eyes widen* But... so Lydia knew about Jace’s adoption?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur It gets crazier. Apparently, Lydia’s worried that Jace could have a new claim.


Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur *paces* I don’t know! I left as soon as I could.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Holy shit. Do you understand what this means?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur I don’t care about changing the past, Arthur! I care about things changing NOW.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Wait a minute. Do you think Jace knows he has a claim?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur You should have heard how they talked about us, it was just awful...

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Newsflash! They hate our guts! Including your BFF Simone Randolph!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn turns away, her eyes welling up. Beat.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur I don’t know what to do...

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn You need to get the hell out of there.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur No... no, I can’t do that.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Brynn. Your coach has so turned into a pumpkin.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur Max needs me in his life. I just need to figure out...

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Oh, will you stop it? Lydia Randolph is Evil with a capital E!

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn She’s obsessing over us and when she does, bad things happen. Look at me. I’m barely living proof!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn bursts into tears. Arthur softens.


Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur Why? Why did this have to happen when I was finally feeling like I had...

Arthur Logan pandparthur

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur *sobs* A future? Other than this.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Arthur looks away.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur I didn’t mean it like that.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn It’s okay, you’re right. You’ve got no future here taking care of me.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn But what exactly is your future with Simone Randolph?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur I just know I’m not ready to leave.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn I’m all for a new plan, Brynn, but it seems to me like you don’t have one.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn I mean, what happens when Lyle starts digging and Simone finds out who you are?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn doesn’t seem to have the answer.

Arthur Logan pandparthur

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Let’s assume she does. Will her family accept it?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The gravity of the situation overwhelms Brynn. She sinks down next to Arthur. Without thinking, she touches her necklace.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur *flatly* I’ve been lying to her. The whole time.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn You had to. You didn’t know…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn nods silently to herself, tears streaming. Arthur studies Brynn. Her emotions are not lost on him. He does his best to give her a hug.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Emotionally exhausted, Brynn rests her head on Arthur’s massive shoulder.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur I will not hurt her. Or Max.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn I know it’s not going to be easy. I just don’t want you to make the same mistakes I did.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn We both know the price was too high.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The NEXT DAY in the RANDOLPH KITCHEN...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone enters carrying a shopping bag to see Brynn sitting at the kitchen table. She sets down the bag, beaming.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Another present and it’s not in a small box so no need for delays!

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *softly* We need to talk.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
TO BE CONTINUED..

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
COMING UP TUESDAY, MAY 3rd on P&P

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone Something’s come up... and I have to leave.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *confused* To go where? For how long?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I have to leave here. This job.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone steps back as if Brynn physically kicked her. She steadies herself on the counter, trying to remain composed.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Brynn, darling, I’m a Randolph. Do you think there’s anything on this earth I can’t fix?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn is silent. Simone throws up her hands.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn This is absurd! You’re not going anywhere until you tell me what this is all about. That’s final!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone sits on a bench in the sea of orchids, softly crying. Brynn enters quietly and sits down next to her.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone looks up. Wipes her tears with a garden glove.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn What an idiot I’ve been. I actually thought you cared about me.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn But not the way I care about you.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Thank you for watching! We’ll see you on Tuesday, May 3rd as the drama and romance heats up on P&P!
