P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Hello and welcome to Episode 17 of the Passionate & The Privileged! Previously on P&P…

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
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
Lyle dropped a bomb in front of Brynn that his mother is concerned about the Logans returning to Hunston Hill.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Which sent Brynn home in a panic.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn had a heart to heart with Arthur… and realized that it is better for her to leave her job than hurt Simone and Max.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Episode 17 - "Trust"

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
In the LOGAN CELLAR… Brynn discusses her dilemma with Arthur...

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 morning at the RANDOLPH HOUSE...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Morning light streams in the Randolph foyer as Brynn enters. The house is quiet, everything in its place.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Kitty’s chew toy basket. Max’s sneakers lined up neatly by color. Simone’s car keys in the antique bowl on the sideboard.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn leans against the door for a beat, overcome with sadness.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Within moments, Max’s feet are pounding down the stairs followed by Simone’s voice.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax This isn’t open for discussion, Max!

Max Randolph pandpmax

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax Fine! But she’s going to have the same answer as Mommy...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max beelines for Brynn. Brynn quickly throws on a smile and scoops him up.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone descends the stairs looking particularly lovely in a cream Chanel suit.

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpSimone You DON’T KNOW what she’ll say!

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
True... and I've grown to like that about her.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone catches Brynn’s eye. Brynn can’t help but smile.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Max has informed me he doesn’t need to go to school today.


Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpBrynn ‘Cause I don’t feel good.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Max glares at Simone while Brynn feels Max’s forehead.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I took his temperature, he’s fine.

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpSimone *about to cry* NO, I’m NOT!

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmax Can you be more specific about what doesn’t feel good? Is it your tummy?





Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpBrynn *giggles* You can’t have a sick elbow!

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmax Really? I think I had one once.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *laughs* Oh, you’re full of surprises.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn sets Max down and looks him in the eye firmly. Beat. Finally…

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpBrynn Maybe I’m just sick of school.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmax Hmm, that’s strange because I happen to know you love school.


Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpmax How about you eat a little breakfast and I’ll take you...

Max Randolph pandpmax

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn stands up as Max heads into the kitchen. Simone looks at Brynn, brimming with affection.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn You’re so good with him.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone He’s easy once you talk him through the stubborn phase. Kind of like somebody else I know...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone gives Brynn a hug.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn We’d both be lost without you.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn It’s true. You bring out the best in me. Just like you do with Max.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone squeezes tighter, her body pressing into Brynn. The onslaught of electricity makes Brynn’s head spin.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *murmurs* Sometimes I can’t believe how safe I feel with you here… knowing I have someone I can trust…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
The mention of trust snaps Brynn back to reality. She manages to pull herself away as Max skips back into the foyer.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn tousles Max’s hair and opens the door.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Max Randolph pandpmax
@pandpBrynn *runs out* Yep! Bye mommy!

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpmax *shouts after him* Feel better darling!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone looks down awkwardly.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
But before Simone can say another word, Brynn forces herself to turn around… and shuts the door behind her.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
LATER, in Simone's Lexus... Brynn gets a call from Arthur as she drives. She sends it to the speakerphone.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur *tense* I’m in the car.

Arthur Logan pandparthur


Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn You said first thing this morning...

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur It wasn’t a good time.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn I don’t think there’s gonna be a good time.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandparthur *frustrated* I KNOW THAT! Do you think I don’t know that?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn’s eyes instantly well up. Beat.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Jace is meeting us here tonight to discuss everything.

Arthur Logan pandparthur
@pandpBrynn Just rip the bandaid off, Brynn.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
LATER 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.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn When there are gifts to open? Go on.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn looks away, upset. Simone kneels down, concerned.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone

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 What exactly has come up?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I can’t really say. It’s... sort of private.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Private?! But... *catches herself* Whatever it is, we’ll deal with it.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I don’t think that’s possible.

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!


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *hurt* Don’t you trust me?

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Will you please STOP SAYING THAT? We had a deal. Respect, remember?

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Now for the last time, I’m asking you to show me some!

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn looks down.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn FINE! JUST GO! I don’t want to know about your precious private problem!

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn But if you think I won’t replace you in a day, THINK AGAIN. Because I WILL...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone’s old bag of tricks has failed her. Saying the words are a knife in her heart.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone crumbles into tears.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Oh, Brynn. What have I done? How could you be so cruel?

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Moments later... in Simone's greenhouse...

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
Simone takes Brynn’s silence as confirmation.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I know that’s what this is about. The ridiculous way I’ve been acting.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn It’s made you uncomfortable being here and rightfully so.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn It’s quite embarrassing really. Me buying you gifts and carrying on like some sort of adolescent.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone looks away, humiliated.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I’m sure I would do the same if I were in your shoes. I wish I was. It’s not very pleasant in mine.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone It’s going to be okay.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *bursts into tears* For you! I’ve been terrible and you’ve been so patient.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I should have thought of you but I only thought of myself. Like I always do. Now I’ve gone and ruined everything.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone You’ve done nothing. It’s me...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *sobs* You just tried to be a good friend. I made you feel like that wasn’t enough.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone looks up through her tears, unsure of what she just heard.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn eyes smolder knowingly. She reaches out, slowly tracing Simone’s lips with her fingers.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone It was never going to be enough.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *breathless* Tell me this isn’t a dream.

Brynn Logan pandpBrynn
@pandpSimone I’ve wanted to do this more times than I can count. I just knew if I did, I wouldn’t be able to stop.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
And with that, Brynn throws 250 years out the window...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
... and she kisses Simone... like it’s the last chance she’ll ever get. Again and again and again.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
TO BE CONTINUED...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
COMING UP THURSDAY MAY 5th on P&P…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
T.J. talks to Addie on his cell as he slowly drives through downtown Hunston Hill.

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpaddie Sorry, babe, I’m going to have to bail on NYC. Something’s going on with my mother…

Addie pandpaddie
@pandptj *taken aback* Oh. Okay, well, I’m not going to lie. I’m disappointed…

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Out of the corner of his eye, T.J. spots JACE WALKING DOWN THE STREET.

T.J. Randolph pandptj

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
T.J. cranks the wheel, almost dropping the phone as he pulls his car over…

T.J. Randolph pandptj
@pandpaddie I have to call you back.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Time seems to start up again as Brynn finally pulls her lips from Simone’s. Simone slowly opens her eyes. She stammers.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Oh, God. I didn’t know it was possible to feel like this.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn smiles and softly touches Simone’s cheek.

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn I don’t think I’ve ever wanted anything so much in my life. Sometimes I thought I was going out of my mind. You have no idea.


Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn It’s like... it’s like I can’t help myself...

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Simone leans in and steals another kiss. As if to reassure herself that she can.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Brynn runs her hands down Simone’s back sending her reeling...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn Oh, Brynn. Let’s... let’s...

Simone Randolph pandpSimone
@pandpBrynn *serious* Let’s go away together. Just for a night.

P & P Narrator pandpnarrator
Thank you for watching! We’ll see you on Thursday, May 5th as P&P continues!
