Nate’s glad. Audra just doesn’t think marriage is anything but an archaic institution.

Crimson Lights

Abby and Devon grab coffees as Abby wonders what this meeting at Chancellor-Winters is about.

Billy wasn’t invited, though Lily and Nate would be there.

When Tucker walks in, Abby turns away, asking her man not to engage with him.

Tucker tells them they’re looking well.

Abby’s rude.

“Thank you. Is there anything else?” Devon berates her lightly.

Abby says he’ll only try to soften her up. Tucker chuckles. It’s true. He has a favor.

That made Abby’s point but Devon agrees to listen.

Tucker’s on Dominic’s email list and learned there was a performance coming.

Lily seems skeptical.

Abby, Nate, and Devon arrive, and Lily says they can’t start until Billy’s here.

Mamie counters that this meeting is for family.

What he did was unconscionable, betraying his family and the company.

He owes Lily for his return to the company and accuses Mamie of hating Jill and Billy.

She denies it but wants them out of the company.

Devon tells his aunt that Jill brought Chancellor in with the merger.

This wasn’t meant to be only about their family. Mamie says it’s no coincidence that he’s the only Chancellor sitting in this room.

Nate’s not happy his aunt is cherry-picking details and creating a war to get what she wants.

Mamie laughs incredulously. Is that what Lily thinks? Lily is frank.

She agrees Billy has an agenda.

This validates Mamie, but Lily says Devon does too.

Lily says it’s not sudden. Jill wouldn’t have brought Billy on board if Mamie hadn’t created dissension.

Jill’s riding Lily’s coattails while the family does the heavy lifting.

Mamie says Jill felt threatened by Tucker, but Nate points out she was in cahoots with him then.

mamie is hurt

Lily says it all comes back to her.

Mamie still doesn’t see it.

She calls the three of them “overly entitled, under-experienced, wannabe adults who are willing to take a pay-off because they’re too afraid to take a leap of faith with her.

mamie offends the kids

Mamie calls this betrayal, and she won’t forget it. She’s hurt and angry, has a big stake in the company, and won’t let go.

Whether they like it or not, they’ll see more of her. She leaves, and Nate thinks they have made another enemy: their longest-living relative.

She’s appalled by their cowardice. She’s disgusted with them.

Mamie is hurt, and Lily says they don’t want the corporate world to come between them.

Mamie thinks family stands by each other. Devon says they’re trying.
