P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Hello and welcome to Episode 15 of the Passionate & The Privileged! Previously on P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone took Brynn as her date to the Historical Society Gala, where Brynn unwittingly won the affections of Dr. Bishop.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone tore Brynn away from Dr. Bishop’s arms on the dance floor and they fell straight into her bed. Just to sleep, of course.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lydia received a letter from a legal firm in Wisconsin, which holds some significance to the long feud between the Randolphs & the Logans.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
T.J. Randolph is engaged to NYC transplant and fashion editor, Addie Altman, but they haven’t set a date for the wedding yet.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Intriguing then that he had a flashback about meeting a young Arthur Logan - a man in hiding whom he should never have associated with.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Episode 15 - "Surprise"

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
FLASHBACK: It's 1994 and we're on the Hunston Hill Academy football field...

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandparthur I’m sorry, those guys can be real assholes. You okay?

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandptj *flustered* Yeah. I plan on putting all this in my autobiography someday…

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandptj When I’m running the world and they’re working at Red Lobster. So it’s actually a good thing.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandparthur *laughs* That sounds about right. I’m T.J. by the way.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandptj Please. I know who you are.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandparthur Yeah, I know who you are too.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
T.J.’s eyes pierce into Arthur.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandptj Our families don’t like each other so much.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandparthur Nope. But history doesn’t always have to repeat itself...

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandparthur Anyway, I’d better head back. Nice meeting you, Arthur.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandptj You too… *shouts* and thanks!

Nurse pandpnurse
Thanks. You can get dressed now. Mr. Randolph? MR. RANDOLPH?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
WE DISSOLVE TO MODERN DAY T.J. He sits shirtless on the examining table in DR BISHOP’S OFFICE.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
He still has the chest of a high school quarterback.

T.J. Randolph pandptj

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The nurse leaves. T.J. dresses. Beat. Dr. Bishop walks in looking at a chart.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandptj Everything looks good. I’ll see you in a year.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpdrbishop *laughs* Something tells me I’ll see you sooner than that.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
T.J. walks towards the door.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandptj T.J. Can I ask you a favor?

T.J. Randolph pandptj

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandptj Your sister-in-law, Simone? She brought a friend to your event.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpdrbishop Ah, Brynn Leveque. She’s their new nanny.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
*smiles* A nanny.

Dr. James Bishop pandpdrbishop
@pandptj And she’s single, right?

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpdrbishop I think so. Why? Are you interested?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone and Brynn pull into the RANDOLPH DRIVEWAY. Simone parks her LEXUS alongside Brynn’s crappy Toyota. Shakes her head.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn We have got to do something about that car.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Funny, what Brynn used to find insulting, she now finds sweet.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I told you I’d park on the street if you hate looking at it.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn And I told you, it’s a matter of safety. When was the last time you had it serviced?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I always drive Max in your car.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I’m talking about YOU. If anything was to happen to you, I’d...


P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone stares at Brynn unable to answer. Beat.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn We’re getting it serviced tomorrow.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *smiles* I’ll add it to the list.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Electricity fills the air. Brynn touches the necklace Simone gave her that she’s now wearing.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I should go. Thank you again for my beautiful clover. And for being...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn slowly leans in and kisses Simone gently on the cheek. Simone closes her eyes.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Yes, we’re good friends. I don’t think I’ve ever had a good friend.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *smiles* I am lucky, aren’t I?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn nods and gets out of the car before she no longer can.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meanwhile in T.J.'s luxury condo... the living room is impeccably furnished. T.J. sits on the couch wearing an expensive suit.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
He’s lost in thought. T.J.’s fiance, ADDIE ALTMAN, chatters from another room.

Woman pandpaddie
@pandptj If we see Roger I’m telling him I’m killing that ridiculous fireman editorial spread.

Woman pandpaddie
@pandptj The photographer was a disaster, it seriously looks like one of those cheesy calendars! I won’t have my name on it.

Woman pandpaddie
@pandptj Oh, and by the way, apparently Roger’s wife left him last week so don’t bring her up.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Addie enters wearing a stylish black dress. She’s the woman Jace met on the bridge!

Addie pandpaddie
@pandptj It doesn’t surprise me. The man’s got the personality of a paperweight. *smiles at T.J.* Hello? Anybody home?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
T.J. snaps out of it.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpaddie Sorry. I was... this new exhibit is going to be the death of me.

Addie pandpaddie
@pandptj *affectionately* I know, you’ve been working so hard. I so wish we could blow this thing off.

Addie pandpaddie
@pandptj *turns* Can you zip me?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
T.J. stands up and zips the back of Addie’s dress.

Addie pandpaddie
@pandptj If you’re tired you don’t have to go.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpaddie And leave you swimming with the sharks? I don’t think so.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
From behind, T.J. wraps his arms around Addie, holding her tight.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpaddie Have I told you lately you are the most stunning woman on the planet?

Addie pandpaddie
@pandptj Mmm. I don’t think so.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpaddie *nuzzles* You should toss me out on my ass. I don’t deserve you.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Addie smiles and turns in T.J.’s arms, facing him.

Addie pandpaddie
@pandptj Now there’s the handsome historian I left my family for. *touches his face* Sometimes I can’t find him.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpaddie *smiles* He’ll always be here.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Later, in the RANDOLPH BACK YARD... Brynn hoses off a giant plastic castle that serves as Kitty’s DOGHOUSE.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
She's splattered with mud, her clothes are soaked. Simone walks up from the patio. She smiles, amused.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I see I’ve found the one job you’re not very good at. Such a mess.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I wasn’t referring to the doghouse.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone *mischievous* I’m beginning to think you put this on my list on purpose.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn slowly points the nozzle towards Simone.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn This is Marc Jacob, Brynn.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn laughs and releases the safety on the hose. Simone backs away.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Do NOT do that. NOT funny! I’m serious, I’ll be very ANGRY if you –

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Too late. Brynn BLASTS Simone with the hose! Simone screams and wrestles for control. She grabs the hose and retaliates!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn screams and scrambles to get away. Simone knocks Brynn off balance...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
They BOTH SCREAM HYSTERICALLY as they fall in a heap on the grass, Simone landing on top of Brynn.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Their laughter dies down as they catch their breath.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone can’t seem to move. Her whole body tingles. Brynn’s beautiful face is just inches away.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Lyle’s voice booms from the house.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
Simone! My meeting got out early so I picked up Max from school. Simone?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The women scramble up as Lyle emerges. Simone looks completely disheveled.

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone @pandpBrynn What on earth have you two been up to?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Later at SAKS FIFTH AVENUE... Simone flips over a tag reading $1900.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
She nods to a salesgirl who adds the dress to a PILE on the counter. From behind Simone:

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Shopping binge? I thought you’d gotten help for that.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone whips around to face Meta Randolph.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta Leave me alone. I’m trying to keep my sanity.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone My brother’s being himself again?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta NO, this has nothing to do with him for once. Actually I suppose it does, but ANYWAY, I can’t talk about it.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone I’m intrigued. *adds up the tags* $5600? Ouch.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta Please take your intrigue elsewhere. (to salesgirl) Do you have this in a size four?

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Too bad, I was going to tell you how to save $5600...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
We CUT TO the cafe/bar at the top of SAK’S. Meta and Simone sit on high stools. An attractive FEMALE BARTENDER pours two MARTINIS.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The bartender wears a THUMB RING. Simone’s eyes narrow.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta I can’t believe I let you talk me into this.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone You’ll be the first to hear my good news. I’ve met someone.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone spies TWO OTHER WOMEN at the end of the bar. One gives the other a LONG HUG. Simone watches annoyed.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone *dreamy* MeatBroker96.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta *disapproving* Oh, Meta. MeatBroker?

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone He’s a commodities trader!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta’s phone buzzes with a text. She smirks and shows it to Simone. It reads: “U r the only thng hotter thn prkbellies.”

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone He practically proposed last night online, okay?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta But you haven’t even met this man!

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone You don’t get how it works on the internet. I probably know more about him than you do about Lyle.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Anyway, we are meeting. Next weekend. I’ve invited him to the Berkshires.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone’s eyes follow a SHORT HAIRED WOMAN and an ATTRACTIVE BLONDE. One laughs, putting her hand on the other’s LEG.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone gulps her martini.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone Am I missing something?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmeta Sorry, I didn’t realize that this was a drinking spot for... *whispers* Lesbians. Look at them all.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Meta bursts out laughing. She looks around.

Meta Randolph pandpmeta
@pandpSimone What are you talking about? I don’t see any lesbians.

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.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
TO BE CONTINUED...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Coming up on THURSDAY, APRIL 28th on P&P…

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.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Later... IN the RANDOLPH KITCHEN…

Lyle Randolph pandplyle
@pandpSimone 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 shoots Brynn a look.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

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

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
AND LATER at the LOGAN MANOR...

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn *eyes widen* Holy shit. Do you understand what this means...

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 looks away, upset.

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

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

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Thanks for watching! We'll see you on THURSDAY, APRIL 28th for more P&P!!!
