P & P WILL BEGIN SHORTLY...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Hello and welcome to Episode 7 of The Passionate & The Privileged! Previously on P & P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Determined to bring Randolph Media Group into the 21st century, Lyle set up a meeting with Senator Adams regarding broadband opportunities.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
After mistreating Brynn, Simone offered an olive branch by way of a nice afternoon beside the pool w/Max – and they started talking.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max clearly likes his new nanny – and though at first it seemed his mother didn’t… it seems Simone has changed her tune about Brynn.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Too bad she forgot to tell Lyle before he let Brynn go.

EPISODE 7 - REDEMPTION

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle *(throws her Kindle down)* What?!

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone What. You couldn’t stand her.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle comes back in the bedroom, shirtless with pajama bottoms carrying a toenail clipper. He sits on the bed and clips.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle No Lyle, that was the first day. I... I’ve gotten used to her. She’s fine.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone I’m sure Sonya will be fine too. She took care of the Stern kids until they left for college and she’ll cost us a lot less.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle Max has really responded to Brynn, he isn’t like that with anyone... and do you really have to do THAT HERE?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone *stops clipping* I’m exhausted and I have a very important meeting tomorrow. It’s done, Simone.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandplyle Then UNDO it or you’re done.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone You know what? I AM done. If you want her so bad, then straighten it out yourself. I wash my hands of the whole thing.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The next morning in the LOGAN Kitchen…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn and Jace sip coffee. Brynn’s eyes are puffy from crying - but she wears it well.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn It’s kind of you to ask me to stay.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace I’ve got 6 empty bedrooms, I think I can spare one for my brother.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn Brynn... what happened to Arthur?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn’s cell phone saves her. It’s HunstonCare.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
Hello? Okay, thanks for checking. *hangs up*

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace I was hoping to get my old job back. They’ve already hired someone else.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn There are some nasty people in this world. The Randolph Family seems to breed more than its share.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace I should have known better than to think I could somehow mend a two century old fence.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn’s cell phone rings again. This time it’s SIMONE.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn Are you going to answer?


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The ringing stops.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn You’re not going to tell me?


Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn Arthur. I have to know.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn knows she can’t avoid the question any longer. She takes a deep breath.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace Fourteen years ago, the Randolphs’ oldest daughter... was found dead. On Logan property. In the woods right behind this house.

Jace Anderson pandpjace

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace It was declared a homicide. Given our family histories, the police interviewed every living Logan about the murder.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn Was Arthur a suspect?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace *nods* He was a loner, he’d disappear into those woods for hours. Everyone knew it.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace He told the police he was back there the day of the murder.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn Was he cleared? Or is he... in prison?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace Neither. He... disappeared. A few hours before they tried to arrest him. And... he’s been gone ever since.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn Well. I appreciate you telling me. Do you think he...

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace He didn’t kill her. I don’t know who did, but it wasn’t Arthur.

Jace Anderson pandpjace
@pandpBrynn How can you know for sure?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace Because he wasn’t alone in the woods that day. I was with him.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
That afternoon, Lyle lunches with Senator Adams at The Federalist, Hunston Hill’s landmark fine dining restaurant.

Waiter pandpwaiter
Drinks, gentlemen?

Senator Adams pandpsenator

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Senator Adams pulls out a GLUCOSE MONITOR. Pricks his finger. Looks at the reading. Hits his fist on the table.

Senator Adams pandpsenator
Crown Royal and ginger!

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
Coffee, thanks.

Senator Adams pandpsenator
@pandplyle So what’s on your mind, sir?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpsenator Senator, my family’s been in the news business for a very long time. I intend to keep it that way.

Senator Adams pandpsenator

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpsenator Circulation has been dropping like a stone. Times are changing. People are getting their news online.

Senator Adams pandpsenator
@pandplyle And? What do you need from me?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpsenator Randolph Media would like to invest in the new broadband network.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpsenator The Federal grant funds 60%... we’re prepared to put up the rest.

Senator Adams pandpsenator
@pandplyle But the Planning Commission is awarding the grant to Sherman Digital.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpsenator And Sherman Digital funded TV ads for your opponent’s campaign. Masked as an independent group, of course.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The light bulb finally goes off in Senator Adams head.

Senator Adams pandpsenator
@pandplyle You are your mother’s son, aren’t you?

Lyle Randolph pandplyle

Senator Adams pandpsenator
@pandplyle Why don’t you come down to D.C. for a few days? I’ll arrange some meetings.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
LATER - inside Simone’s Lexus, Simone drives, miserable. Max sits in the back in his uniform.

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpSimone After homework, can we play Monopoly? I wanna show Bwynn I can be the bank.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax Honey... Brynn isn’t going to be working for us anymore.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone braces herself. Max bursts into tears.

Max Randolph pandpmax

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax I know... but there wasn’t anything I could do.

Max Randolph pandpmax

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax No, Max. I wanted her to stay. Just like you.

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpSimone *hiccup sobs* Then why did she go?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax There was a misunderstanding and Daddy hired a nice new lady. She’s very excited to meet you...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max throws down his toy and crosses his arms. He angrily stares out the window.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Later, at the RANDOLPH HOUSE… Simone tries to busy herself making a list. She’s too distracted.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone opens a cabinet. Pulls out THE FLOWERS that Brynn brought earlier in the week. They’re dying.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone takes a deep breath, pulls out her cell phone, and dials.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meanwhile, at LOGAN MANOR - Brynn shows Jace his new room. Sparsely furnished with antiques, the windows have a view of the back woods.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpjace This is Arthur’s old room. It gets a lot of light. I put on fresh sheets, clean towels are in the bathroom.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn’s cell phone rings. It’s Simone. Anger flashes across Brynn’s face.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn exits into the hall and answers her cell.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I’m only answering to tell you to stop calling. Goodbye...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn No, don’t hang up...

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I... I want you to come back. Max is very upset about you leaving.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I didn’t leave, I was let go! It’s bad enough you playing games with me, but playing games with your own son?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn It was a mistake, Lyle hired someone else without telling me. I would never have...

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I’m not buying it, Simone.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn hangs up. Her phone immediately rings.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator

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

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
*choked up*@pandpBrynn 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
TO BE CONTINUED...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Coming up on P & P, Thursday, March 31st…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
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.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
And later at the HUNSTON HILL HOSPITAL…

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

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

Lydia Randolph pandplydia
@pandpdrbishop 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.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Thanks for watching! We'll see you on THURSDAY, MARCH 31st!!!
