Things had rapidly gotten worst in New York since Tina last spoke to Bette. They were now using the word Pandemic regularly in the News. She was busy trying to keep things together for the studio, but things were happening too fast. She had resorted to text messages to both her girls to keep them apprised of the situation in New York. Tina hadn’t had the chance to talk to Bette about what happened at NYU. The more she thought about it, the more she felt this was a conversation that should take place in person. She didn’t want to admit to herself that she was still a bit bothered by what had been said. A lawsuit and restraining order all took place while they were still married and she didn’t know a thing about it. Her unresolved issues caused so much destruction. Lisa Cron, her therapist quoted Sigmund Freud once when they had a discussed about the impact of unaddressed emotions and she recalled the quote. ”Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive, and will come forth later in uglier ways.” And they sure did she thought, like a title wave of destruction through their relationship that ended up causing a divorce. She really didn’t want to get into a discussion about the past. Both she and Bette had done a lot of work individually and together to sort out the issues that played a part in their separation, but clearly Kelly Wentworth was not done with Bette. It had been over five years, since the problems played out between them. Tina had no idea why Kelly would make an appearance now, unless she had something to gain. But what it could be was a loss to her. Bette would be able to figure out the connections. Given time, she would sort it out. It rested in her hands, and no one else’s.
Tina had been hearing that the New York Governor was going to issue some sort of shut down order. She wasn’t quite sure what that meant, but she did not want to be in New York to find out. She had just gotten approval to shut down all the active productions and send everyone home. This was going to cost the studio millions, but she was able to convince the studio executives that this was the best course of action given the current state of global affairs with this COVID virus. She didn’t think this was going to last too long. The productions would be able to get back on track by summer, but they would have to push it. Working overtime would be the only way to meet the 2021 release deadlines, but she felt it was doable.
