An Exclusive Interview With The Head Writer Of "OLTL"
RATINGS FOR THE WK. OF 12/1/14
NOTE: RATINGS TAKE 6 WEEKS TO FINALIZE
NOTE: RATINGS ARE NOW COMPARED TO PREVIOUS WEEK
Another World 2.1 (Lossed .1 Views)
Days of our Lives 1.8 (Gained .1 Views)
The Bold and the Beautiful 1.7 (Gained .3 Views)
One Life to Live is back, and better than ever! Josh Manning has cooked up several juicy plotlines, that will have you screaming!!! We recently caught up with the head writer, to see what he has in store.
S.O.N: In OLTL's first week, it did not have bad ratings. What was your initial reaction to that?
Josh Manning: I was a little shocked, considering all the other soaps have been pulling high ratings; and they are so far in their episodes, and I was like nah I won't get high ratings. I thought i wouldnt get high ratings until i had written 80 episodes. But over all, I have been loving my ratings.
S.O.N: We all know that Dorian is going through some medical drama. Can you preview for us, how that will affect the future of the character?
J.M.: Well I can't give too much preview, because it will give too much away. But I can tell you this, if Dorian lives she will start to be a better person.
S.O.N: In your pilot, Natalie was kinda off to Viki. Why was she acting the way she did towards her mom?
J.M.: You will start to see a different side of Natalie in this new version of OLTL. Natalie is trying to prove that she is over John by moving on with Cutter. Viki is just looking in Natalie's best interest, but what daughter is going to listen to their mother?
S.O.N: Many have focused on your returns. People have really gotten their eyes stuck on Karen Wolek. She hasn't been in Llanview in over 30 years. Why'd you decide to have her return?
J.M.: I wanted to bring back a character that was huge, but hasn't been seen in a while. So I decided to go with Karen. Why you ask? She will have alot to do with Clint and Viki's marriage, as well as a couple of other people in Llanview.
S.O.N: How will Viki and Karen reconnect?
J.M.: I have a lot of their reconnection planned, but for how long is the question? Karen and Viki will double cross someone very soon.
S.O.N: Why did you decide to have Aubrey return?
J.M.: I feel like there was alot of unanswered questions as to who she really was. So I figured bring her back and involve her in a storyline that will reveal her past.
S.O.N: What connection does Aubrey have to Noah?
J.M.: All I can give you on this questions is that Aubrey is like an older sister to Noah.
S.O.N: Are you doing seasons of OLTL?
J.M.: As of right now, no I am not but you never really know. I might change my mind if it helps ratings.
S.O.N: Why are your episodes so short? Will they increase, in the future?
J.M.: I don't want to much going on with my small cast, as of right now. I just started, but as I write more episodes they will increase
S.O.N: Why did you decide to write OLTL?
J.M.: I have always been a huge fan of OLTL. I started watching the show in 2008, and watched it until it was cancelled in 2012. Then, I watched the PP version in 2013. Last year, I was debating on whether to write it or not. Then one day, I just started writing on it and now I have written four episodes and going on more.
Many fans have been wondering if their favorite S.O.N soaps will be renewed or say bye-by. Here's your need to know information.
The Bold and the Beautiful has been renewed for seasons 3 and 4!!!
Days of our Lives has been renewed through Winter of this year!!!
The Young and the Restless has been renewed through the 2016 season!!!
Another World has been renewed through Winter of this year, as well!!!
One Life to Live:
One Life to Live is already making us feel right back in Llainview! It already has a star studed cast, and bullet proof stories! We can't wait to see who has trials and tribulations next!
The Bold and the Beautiful:
We are all loving what B&B has been through in the past eight months, but viewers are wanting more. They want deeper emotional storylines. Can B&B deliver that in seasons 3 & 4, or will it be calling it quits?
The Young and the Restless:
An Explosion Comes To Town!
The Bold and the Beautiful:
Jennifer Tells Eric What Happened The Night He Lost His Memory!
Days of our Lives:
No More Jarlena?
The 200th Episode Leaves You Breathless!

Jack Is Put In Danger.
Written By: Josh Manning
INT. BUCHANAN MANSION - MORNING
Bo & Nora are sitting on the couch, when the front door opens up. Mathew walks in.
Mathew, what are you doing here? I thought you were going to London for a few days?
I decided not to go to London, and just stay here, and deal with what I need to deal with.
Which is what exactly?
Oh, just something that I've been thinking about for a while. Well, I just wanted to stop by and say I'm back. I'll see you guys later at the party.
Matthew walks out of the mansion
INT. SHELTER - MORNING
Jack is sitting at a table asleep, when Blair drops a tray of dirty dishes on the table. This is causing him to jump up.
Take those to the kitchen and run them through the dishwasher.
Don't you have someone who does that?
Yeah, you! Considering I can't trust you enough to leave you alone, I'm going to start treating you like a little kid again.
This is so stupid.
Then start acting your age.
Jack grabs the tray and walks off towards the kitchen. Blair sighs as Tea walks up behind her and taps her on the shoulder.
What's that all about?
This is Jack's punishment for drinking while under age.
Just the beginning I hope.
Oh, it is.
INT. CONNIE'S BOUTIQUE - MORNING
Dani and Destiny are walking up to a building. Dani looks up at the name.
Is this new or something? I've never heard of it.
That's because you always go to the mall to shop, and us people who have a little less money come here. Come on they have some really nice dresses that we could use for tonight's party.
Destiny and Dani walk towards the the door, and into the building. They are approched by a lady.
Hello, and welcome to Connie's Boutique. I'm Connie, the store's owner. Here at Connie's Boutique we have everything that you could possibly need, and it's only a one of a kind store. So look around and let me know if you need any help.
Connie walks off. Dani looks at Destiny with a weird look on her face.
Okay! I know Connie can be a little out going, but there really are some nice dresses here. Come on. Let's look around.
INT. TODD'S OFFICE - MORNING
Todd is sitting in his chair behind his desk. His office phone goes office. Todd picks up the phone.
Hello Todd! It's been a long time, a little too long.
Who is this?
Oh, you'll know soon enough who it is. Let me just say I'd love to get reaqquinted with your wife Blair. She's a real fine beauty.
Listen to me, who ever the hell you are. If you come near my wife I'll kill you.
The line goes dead. Todd picks up the phone and throws it across the room, causing it to hit the door, just as the door opens. Victor walks into the room
INT. KAREN'S PENTHOUSE - MORNING
Karen is sitting on her couch drinking coffee and looking at her phone. She hears a knock at her door, Karen gets up and answers the door. Viki is standing there.
Viki! Oh my goodness get yourself in here, and give me a hug.
And why would I do that after you double crossed me?
I don't understand. What are you talking about?
Don't play stupid with me Karen, you double crossed me.
What are you talking about Viki?
Viki holds up a news paper, with the headline::::
Buchanan and Wolek creating Buchanan Media
INT. WANDA'S PLACE - MORNING
Aubrey is sitting in a booth. Someone walks into the diner and over to her booth.
Is this seat taken?
Aubrey looks up and a smile comes across her face. She gets up, and hugs the person
No please have a seat. Oh my god Kameron. I can't believe that you are here in Llanview. What brings you to town?
Well, I came to see my big sister of course. So tell me what is it like living as Aubrey Wentworth, instead of Kristine Karr.
Will you hush? Not everyone knows that my real name is Kristine. Besides, Kristine Karr died when my mother died. So are you planning on staying here in Llanview, or what?
There's something else that I should tell you?
Dad is coming to town, and my mother is already here in town with her shop.
Connie's Boutique? Yeah I already read about that in the paper. But, why would dad be coming with her? I thought they split up?
Kameron: After you moved out, my mom moved back in. They got back together.
(Laughs) Great! This day just keeps getting better and better.
INT. SHELTER - MORNING
I can't believe that Jack is back to acting like he was before. I thought he had started to change.
So did I, and I would still be thinking that if Victor hadn't caught him drinking.
But, at the same time it doesn't really surprise me. I mean considering he is Todd's son.
So, what you're saying that Jack is going to be just like Todd?
That's not what I'm saying, Blair.
Well it sure sounds like it Tea. And I'd really appreciate it if you didn't talk bad about my husband.
I really can't help it if that's what Todd is, and Jack has been acting a lot like what Todd would have.
Alright..., you need to leave. Get out of my club.
Blair, come on! Are you going to throw me out of your club, just because of what I said? Are you really?
Yes, I am.
You are acting like a child, and whether you want to admit it or not. Jack is following in Todd's footsteps.
Teà walks up the steps, and out of Shelter
INT. ANGEL SQUARE - MORNING
Starr is sitting on a bench looking at her dress. She hears a voice over her shoulder.
That dress looks lovely.
Thank you. So, what did he say about that money you gave him.
He said he would let us know as soon as possible as to what's next.
If you don't mind me asking. What's your name?
Uh..., just call me PJ. I mean that's what everyone calls me.
Well, PJ how would you like to go to a party tonight with me.
I'd like that very much.
Okay, well we need to get you a suit for tonight. Shall we?
Sure, why not.
PJ and Starr walk off, while feet start to walk towards where they were standing. We reveal an unknown person. The person is holding a gun.
INT. SHELTER KITCHEN - MORNING
Jack has just gotten the tray of dishes out of the dishwasher, as his phone goes off. Jack grabs his phone and looks at the text.
Meet me at dawn in the park. I have something speacial for you. Love Constance.

Hi, this is Jennifer Lomax. Eric hi. Yes, I'm back to my hotel already. I have some big news, though. (Hopeful) When I get home do you wanna go out, and I can tell you? Of course. Okay. I'll just meet you at the house then.
She hangs up. There's a knock at the door. Jennifer goes to answer it.
Massimo Marone. What are you doing here?
INT. HOTEL SUITE - AFTERNOON
Rick and Maya are in bed, making out.
That was amazing!
Glad to hear it.
I still can't believe Caroline believed that whole work excuse. How did her appointment go?
It went fine.
Rick, can I ask you a very personal question?
Shoot for it.
Do you feel that you are betraying Caroline more than ever now, because she has breast cancer?
INT. TAYLOR'S HOME - AFTERNOON
Brooke enters. Taylor shuts the door.
Is Thorne here?
No, he's at work. Maybe I should call him again. He had to rip you away from me last night. He might have to do it again.
Taylor you know damn well why I slapped you. It was because of Morgan.
Taylor is just in shock that Brooke knows.
INT. MORGAN'S CABIN - AFTERNOON
Lieutenant Baker enters with police force and detectives. The crime scene is mapped out with number tags. Morgan's dead body has been traced.
Has Miss DeWitt's body been sent to the morgue?
Yes, it has Lutienant.

We've got a busy rest of the day, gentalmen. Let's get moving.
INT. INSOMNIA - AFTERNOON
Marcus and Dayzee are drinking coffee. Marcus is on his phone. He hangs up.
Who was that?
Amber called. Rosie wanted to say hello.
Was that too much for you to hear?
Marcus, let's make a New Year's resolution.
What would that be?
Let's forget about all the heartache that we had in 2014. Let's just move on. Let's be the married couple that we want to be. Can you make that promise?
Of course I can. Happy New Year baby.
Happy New Year.
INT. MELINDA AND CARRIE'S HOME - AFTERNOON
Melinda and Jason walk into the living room.
So, what'd you think?
Very nice house.
I hope so. It cost an arm and a leg. Plus, it is nothing compared to your new digs.
(Laughs) I actually wanted to talk to you about that. It is why I came over here.
What do you mean?
Were not going to do this again.
We might have to. If we get trapped like before.
Dammit mom! I'm not doing this again, so you can ruin my life! I won't let you be a tramp again!
Melinda slaps Jason.
You watch your mouth when you are talking to me! Do you understand? Now, like I said before. If we get trapped, I will repeat the events, that I did with your first fiancée.
INT. THE BUG - AFTERNOON
Priscilla, Stephen, and Katie are sitting at a table.
That meal was delicious! I had no idea that this place opened. A lot has changed since I was last here, ten years ago.
Yes, it has. Anyways, Priscilla I have a question for you, honey?
Do you think we should reveal it to her?
Reveal what to me?
There's something I've been neglecting to tell you. I think it is time I tell you.
INT. JENNIFER'S HOTEL ROOM - AFTERNOON
Massimo is in the room. Him and Jennifer are drinking scotch, as they speak.
What are you doing here in Flordia?
I thought I would come talk to you about some information, that I've recently come into contact with. I think it might suit you.
What information would that be?
First, I need you to make me a deal.
What would that be?
That we team up.
I'm glad you are.
But what information is worth teaming up with you? That's where you lose me.
This information pertains to your son.
INT. HOTEL SUITE - AFTERNOON
Rick and Maya are snuggling in the bed.
That's quite the loaded question.
It is an honest one. So, what is you answer? I am curious to know this.
Can you honestly say that?
I don't! My wife has cancer, and I'm sleeping with you. My wife doesn't have cancer, and I'm sleeping with you. Nothing changes.
Maya, I think that you feel that you are betraying Caroline.
Ever since you found out about her diagnoses, you have been the jumpy one. Tell me you aren't re-thinking this whole thing?
INT. MELINDA AND CARRIE'S HOME - AFTERNOON
Melinda steps back.
That got out of hand.
Yes... it did.
I'm sorry too.
Do you want to talk about it.
You slept with my first fiancèe's father. Because, you thought she was cheating on me. So, you slept with him to avenge me is what you said.
To this day, that is the truth.
But you have changed. Right?
Of course. Would you like something to eat or drink? I have some soda in the fridge.
I think it is best if I leave.
(Chuckles) You are probably right.
Have a good day mom.
INT. THE BUG - AFTERNOON
Katie sits in closer.
Well, don't keep me in suspence. What have you two cooked up?
Well... we wanted to tell you this on Christmas Eve, but we wanted to find the right time.
And, Stephen wanted to constantly check up on his sick grandson. Which again, Katie I'm so very sorry that happened.
Thank you Priscilla. Now, back to you. What's up? Tell me already.
Stephen and Priscilla:
INT. TAYLOR'S HOME - AFTERNOON
Brooke paces around the room.
I've been trying to wrap my head around everything that has happened to me. And I try to get all these people that were in this plan straight in my mind. I've been wondering who robbed me of half a year. And I keep coming back to your name. And I don't know if that's because we hate one another, or because you were one of the people who robbed me of six months!
Brooke, I never meant for things to get as much out of hand as they did. Or any of the people for that matter. When we all found out that Morgan kidnapped you, we were horrified. We had forgotten how insane she was. I had forgotten what she's done to me.
That's another thing. What were you thinking? This woman made you think your daughter was dead. Her and Doctor Tim Ried tried to kill you, Taylor. Ridge ended up having to drive a car through Morgan's house to stop her. Twelve years after that show down, you decide to team up with her. You put Steffy back in danger. Your a therapist Taylor. And I have to question your insanity. Isn't that ironic? Now, we have a lot to talk about, before Lieutenant Baker questions me, tonight. So, let's get started.
INT. MORGAN'S CABIN - AFTERNOON
Lieutenant Baker is talking with a detective. Another one comes up to him.
Sir, I found something.
One of Stephanie Forrester's broaches.
How can you tell that is the deceased Stephanie Forrester's broache?
It is inscribed on the back. It says "To my Stephanie, with all love Eric Forrester."
Then what the hell was Morgan doing with one of Stephanie's broaches?
Brooke:: Next On "The Bold and the Beautiful"
Katie: (Sighs) I don't know. I'm still suspicious about this woman. Something doesn't feel right to her about me. I just can't put my finger on it.
Amber: I was a little surprised when you called me. It was kind of un-expected.
Lieutenant Baker: What kind of woman was Morgan DeWitt, before Brooke killed her in self defense?
Daisy walks into Daniels room where she sees Phyllis holding Lucy and Nate is running a set of vitals.
Phyllis: What are you doing here?
Daisy: I came to make sure the father of my child is ok.
Daniel: Mom please relax. Not in front of my daughter.
Daisy: Our daughter.
Nate: Daniel how are you feeling?
Daniel: Other than a massive headache I'm ok.
Nate: You got a pretty nasty knot on your head. Do have any idea what happened to you?
Daisy: Yes I want to know that too. How did you end up walking into the club naked Daniel?
Phyllis: He was not! My son doesn't do that!
Nate: Paramedics noted that Daniel had no bottoms on.
Daisy: We saw Daniel walking into GC Nights , stumbling, no pants on. So what happened?
Daniel tries to remember
I remember a hot blonde bombshell
Daisy wonders if its her sister Mary.

Episode 158: The Funky Men of Genoa City
Written and produced by ML Cooks
Creative Consults: Martin Saenz, Casey Hutchinson, Cary Richardson and Alex Beebs
Leslie is looking at Neil who has just received a mysterious envelope.
Les: What is it Neil is something wrong?
Neil: Its an invite for me and you to a celebration.
Les: Celebration, well what kind?
Neil: It doesn't say just gives a date and time. It says we are all in for a big surprise.
Les: Well who is we? Who else is invited?
Neil: 'Im not sure. But this is weird.
Les: Are you going to attend? I mean the last time this city had some sort of big party, someone exposed my past. I still say its Avery and although I have not gotten my hands on her yet lo and be hold when I do its going to be smoke in this city.
Neil: Calm down.
He gives her a hug.
Neil: We are past that and moving forward.
Les: I'm sorry Neil. Avery is going to pay for what she's done to me. But any way back to this party. Are you going to go?
Neil: You mean are we going to go? I don't know yet.
Leslie: Do you think its a trap being set by Malcolm?
Neil: He does hate my guts these days. Blames me for all of his problems. That's a good question. I think I'm going to find out.
Les: You're going to Malcolm's?
Neil: You damn straight. I'm going to get to the bottom of all of this.
Neil grabs his jacket and car keys and leaves.
Leslie goes into the bedroom to check on Moses.
As usual the place is trashed, crushed beer cans and empty liquor bottles litter the floor everywhere. Pizza boxes on top of pizza boxes are stacked on the coffee table. Clothes are strewn out the efficiency apartment and to complete this are flies buzzing around. One flies in Malcolm's ear and he bolts up, having been sleep on the stained sofa.
He immediately remembers last night, somewhat. Meeting a pretty woman. She had a cell phone recording. It was of Roxanne and Nate admitting their love for one another. Drawn together by their secrets, Nate's being that he switched Moses paternity from Malcolm to Neil when Moses was born.
He snaps out of his flash back.
He talks aloud to himself.
It cant be. I'm tripping. I was drunk. It was a dream. It has to be. Why would Nate do something like that to me?
He thinks of last night again. He remembers listening to the taped conversation with Roxanne and Nate.
Hillary: How about a new beginning? Its never too late.
Malcolm: Thank you girl for listening to this loser tonight. I know I'm not much company. You're hanging with Genoa City's biggest loser. He takes another shot.
Hillary caves in and decides to save Malcolm. To give him hope. She takes his phone and then hers and touches them together so she can send the recording to Malcolm's phone.
Malcolm: What you doing pretty girl you want my number?
Hillary: I'm giving you hope. The video is done transferring. Hillary hits play on Malcolm's phone and then gets up and leaves.
Malcolm tries to focus in on the recording. He hears Nate admitting that he changed Moses paternity results from him to Neil.
I think I had too much to drink.. He then hits replay. He listens again to Nate admitting Moses is really his son and not Neil's From Episode 139
Malcolm thinks to himself
It was a dream it has to be. I will kill Nate and Neil both if some sh!t like that was true. Ill be damned.
He gets a knock on his door. He walks over to it and opens it up and sure enough its the man himself, Neil Winters.
Malcolm: Good timing.
Back at the Hospital
Phyllis: A blonde bombshell. What were you doing with her?
Daniel: Its all kinda foggy and its making my headache worse. Can we just talk about this later?
Nate: Good idea. We need to give Daniel his rest. Ill give you something for pain.
Nate leaves the room. Daisy follows with lots of thoughts running through her mind. She cant help but wonder if her sister Mary slept with Daniel.
Ill kill her.
Kill who? Daisy hears behind her. She turns around and sees Phyllis.
Daisy: I think Daniel cheated on me tonight.
Phyllis: Cheated? You're nuts! You're not with Daniel. He doesn't like you.
Daisy: We are a family whether you or him like it or not. We are going to be a family for the sake of our daughter. And you better watch how you speak front of my child. Your mouth tends to be outrageous.
Phyllis: You're outrageous Daisy Carter! Your last name says it all. You are a Carter! The daughter of Sheila Carter! Enough said!
Daisy: Why are you being so mean? I thought we were making some headway when I came to you and told about your son. You let me bring you over here.
Phyllis: I was desperate and had no other way to the hospital. Ill find my own way back.
Daisy: Can I give my daughter a hug before I go?
Phyllis: That wont be necessary.
Daisy has a tear form in her eye.
Daisy: One day Phyllis I will get custody of my daughter back. You will see. I am so determined. No one is going to stop me.
Phyllis: Well see about that. Keep dreaming Crazy Carter.
Phyllis flags down and orderly to push her wheel chair into the lobby. As Phyllis leaves Daisy calls her a Bitch. Phyllis turns around and smiles at her.
Daisy: I will get you Phyllis. You will pay for this. Daisy leaves the hospital.
Hillary sits next to Spencer on the love seat as Roxanne sits in a chair across from them, eyes still very tense as she looks upon her new family.
Roxanne: I'm listening Spencer.
Spencer: After I changed my life, I met Hillary's mother, Brenda. I fell in love with her. She turned me into a wholesome man. We got married and had Hillary.
Roxanne: So I'm the older one?
Hillary: Don't act like it.
Spencer: Stop that you two! We don't need them smart ass remarks. Now Hillary I raised you better than that. If you don't have nothing nice to say then don't say it at all.
Hillary: Have you heard Roxi's mouth?
Roxanne: See right there bitch. I told you to get my name right.
Hillary: I don't have enough respect for you to use the name given to you.
Spencer: This is going to be tough.
Roxanne: There aint going to be nothing. Don't worry about it. I don't like Hillary. I don't care if she's my half-sister. All she need to do is stay out my way and my life.
Hillary: Aren't you going to add Nathan to that list? That's the real reason you don't like me. You have Devon on one hand and lusting after Nate with the other and you're mad because Nate and I used to be in love back in college and we reconnected when I got back and you became very jealous. Especially after Nate told you that you two needed to end things.
Roxanne: You sure know a lot don't you.
Hillary: More than you know.
Spencer: Roxanne is any of this true or what?
Roxanne: I'm not going to dignify this whores accusations with an answer. And how dare you just believe her words over mine. This is a great start to a father and daughter relationship. I really cant handle this right now. I think I better leave because the only thing I want to do right now is tear off Hillary's face.
Roxanne grabs her purse and leaves slamming the door behind her. A picture falls from the wall.
Spencer shakes his head in disbelief.
Spencer: This cant be happening.
He turns to Hillary.
Hillary: Dad I don't lie you know that much.
Spencer: I know. I just cant believe all what I've seen today. My two daughters at war.
Philip knocks on a door. When the door opens its a rough looking Cane.
Philip: Nothing has changed.
Cane: Yea mate well I'm not in the mood for your sh!t right now!
Philip pushes Cane aside and barges into the apartment.
Philip: Well get ready you cracked out Aussie.
Philip looks around at the nearly empty apartment.
Philip: I know the signs. Ive seen you like this before. Crack?
Cane: Its none of your business.
Philip: Where are the twins?
Cane: Dont worry about them I got this.
Philip: No you dont you went from cocaine to crack! You sold everything in this apartment. You dont have nothing is what you got. Now again where are your twins?
Cane: Im not telling you now get the FUKK outta here Philip!
Philip: No I warned you! The last time I saw you I had to bail you out because you owed Sergio, the crack dealer one thousand dollars. I warned you to stop smoking crack then. Now I come back a few days later to check up on you and what do I find? It looks like you havent washed up in weeks. You sold all the furniture. What the hell Cane!? What is the matter with you? How has the almighty fallen so damn low? What drove you to this?
Cane: I dont want to hear this crap right now Philip! I dont care about you just leave!
Philip: I care! Someone has to care. Where are your children Cane?
Cane walks over to the door and opens it.
Cane: Out! NOW!
Philip pulls out his cell phone and begins to dial some numbers. He puts the phone to his ear as he hears ringing on the other end. Cane slams the door shut and walks over to Philip.
Cane: Who are you calling?
Philip: The police and then after that children services, last but not least Neil. This crack habit of yours stops now.
Cane pulls out a gun and shoots at Philip. The bullet grazes Philip hand and he drops the phone. Philip begins to holler out in pain but Cane comes up behind him and covers his mouth with his hand. Cane kneels them down so Cane can grab the phone.
Cane: No Im sorry. There is no emergency here. My kids got my phone by mistake.
Operator: Well Please make sure it doesnt happen again.
Cane hangs up the phone.
Cane: You like it when a man is behind you like this Philip?
Philip tries to wrestle out of Canes grip.
Cane: If you dont stop I'll shoot you again. I warned you. I told you to leave. Now you arent going anywhere mate. Im a crack head with a valuable hostage.
Daisy is walking the streets of GC. She is texting in her phone to Sheila.
"Where R U? I told U Mary and James are on their 2 U. Mary betrayed us, she sold us out. Are U ok?" She hits send.
Daisy: Mary Carter what have you done?
Meanwhile in Verdon Lou.
Sheila's phone goes off. Its on a table but Sheila is in the basement with a huge wrench trying to loosen a screw on some pipes. It cracks and a hissing sound begins to grows louder from the ruptured pipe. In anger Sheila hits the pipe with the wrench and the pipe now breaks in half.
Sheila: Damn it! This cant be happening. Gas leak.
All this while James and Mary are making their way to Verdon Lou after Mary apparently sold Sheila out.

Frankie walks in.
Frankie: Hey honey!
Cass: How was it?
Charlie: Oh come on. You guys know how honeymoons go.
Frankie: We sure do.
Charlie: It was magical.
Frankie: You didn’t wanna come back did you?
Charlie: Kirkland and I could have laid there forever. It was like there was no world outside. Just us.
Cass: I know that feeling.
Frankie: You must have had a long flight. Are you hungry?
Charlie: Not really. Thanks mom.
Cass: Where’s Kirkland?
Charlie: He went to see his father.
GRANT’S HOUSE - Kirkland rings the doorbell and Christy answers.
Christy: Hi Kirkland.
Kirkland walks past Christy looking around.
Kirkland: Where’s my dad?
Christy: He’s getting dressed. You can wait for him.
Kirkland: Are you dad’s housekeeper or something Christy?
Christy: Far from that my dear.
Kirkland: What are you doing here anyway? Especially after you crashed me and my wife’s wedding reception.
Christy: Look I...I owe you an apology.
Kirkland: You’re damned right. You and your creepy son.
Christy: Eric is not creepy, and he had nothing to do with it. It was all my idea. I shouldn’t have done it.
A fully dressed Grant walks in.
Grant: Hey son! When did you get back?
Kirkland: Couple hours ago. Dad can I speak to you for a minute?
Christy: I’ll...go into the study.
Kirkland and Grant look to make sure she’s out of sight, then Kirkland turns his attention to Grant.
Kirkland: Dad what is she doing here?
Grant: Can’t I be charitable?
Kirkland: Charity? So you just gave this woman, who tormented Charlie’s parents, a place to live?
Grant: Are you saying that I am not giving? I’ll have you know that I give to a lot of organizations.
Kirkland: Yeah, especially to the ones that you can get a big tax write off for.
Grant: Did you learn comedy on your honeymoon?
Kirkland: Dad you never answered my question? What is Christy Carson doing here? I noticed you two made eye contact when she showed up uninvited at Tops.
Grant: Son I can’t get into that right now.
Kirkland: Come on dad. Are we gonna go down this road again? I read that her parole was denied. After that she gets out, and now she’s living here. What’s going on?
Grant: She’s....helping me to get Paulina back.
Kirkland: Are you on that again? Why would Christy help you to do that?
Grant: Because I love Paulina. I never stopped.
Kirkland: Nahhh there’s something more to it than that.
Grant: I’ll have to tell you later son. Hey why don’t you go see your mother. I’m sure she’d be happy to see you.
AT THE MCKINNONS - In front of the house, Jake , Vicky , Michael and Donna are all discussing Michele …
Jake: Vicky are you serious?
Vicky: Are you telling me that Reginald isn’t capable of poisoning her mind?
Michael: He held me prisoner for over twenty years. He sure can brainwash my granddaughter.
Donna (turning to Michael): For some reason, though, I don’t think that’s the case. Bridget did some questionable things that lead to Michele’s accident.
Vicky: Yeah, she did.
Michael: So that’s why you think Michele might be angry at Bridget. What do you think she’s gonna do?
Donna: I have no idea, but I have a very bad feeling.
Vicky: So you think that...Michele is gonna do something to Bridget, just like Marley did something to me?
Donna: Yes, and we’ve got to stop it.
Vicky: Michele is not gonna hurt her sister.
Jake has a flashback..
Jake: It’s a long story honey, but it turns out that Lindsay Winthrop is my daughter.
Michele: My goodness.
Bridget: And she’s a deceitful lying little bitch, and I want nothing to do with her.
Michele looks at Bridget, then looks at Jake.
Michele: Well...I’d like to meet her.
Jake flashes back to the present…
Jake: Wait a minute. I know exactly where Michele is.
They all follow Jake, and Bridget comes out, and follows everyone else.
HOSPITAL EXAM ROOM - Michele is with Gregory and Lindsay …
Gregory: Thank you.
Michele: She looked she was in a lot of pain. I’m just glad I was here for you.
Lindsay: And it was really sweet of you to stay with me. Thank you.
Gregory: Hey I’m Greg.
Lindsay: And my name’s Lindsay. It’s nice to meet you...uh…
Lindsay extends her right hand to Michele, and Michele has a flashback (EPISODE 184).
Bridget: Lindsay came to Bay City and lied to all of us. She tried to be my friend, knowing all the while that she was my sister.
Michele: Our sister?
Jake: It’s a long story honey, but it turns out that Lindsay Winthrop is my daughter.
Michele: My goodness.
Bridget: And she’s a deceitful lying little bitch, and I want nothing to do with her.
Michele looks at Bridget, then looks at Jake.
Michele: Well...I’d like to meet her.
Michele flashes back to the present.
Michele: I’m Michele.
Lindsay: Oh...nice to meet you.
Gregory: I appreciate you being here for Lindsay.
Michele: Oh it’s not problem.
Michele tries to walk past them and Lindsay stops her as she approaches the door.
Lindsay: Wait Michele. You said that John was your uncle.
Gregory: My dad?
Lindsay: Yeah. Who are you? Jake had a daughter named Michele..
Michele: I really need to go.
Lindsay grabs her arm before she can open the door.
Lindsay: What kind of game are you playing?
CAMERA PAN ON MICHELE...SLOW FADE OUT...CUT TO THEME SONG.
Cass: He went to see Grant? What’s the matter with him? He doesn’t wanna shoot the breeze with his in-laws?
Charlie: He wants to see parents just as I want to see mine.
Frankie: I’m sure we’ll all catch up later. When did you get back?
Charlie: About a couple of hours ago.
Cass puts his arm around Frankie’s shoulder.
Charlie: So have you heard anything from Christy Carson since she showed up at the reception?
Frankie: I’ve...I’ve seen her.
Cass: What do you mean Frankie?
Frankie: She asked to meet with me the other day.
Frankie: She apologized for crashing the reception.
Cass: I can’t believe you would even meet with her. Come on you’re not falling for this!
Frankie: That’s what Felicia said.
Cass: Christy is pulling you into her web.
Frankie: I’m giving her a second chance Cass. Who am I to hold a grudge?
Charlie: I wasn’t born yet when Christy did all those things to you, but, from what I heard, it was really bad mom. I think you need to be careful where she’s concerned.
Cass: That’s what I’ve been trying to tell her, but she won’t listen.
Frankie: Come on I wasn’t born yesterday. You think I don’t have questions myself? Her parole was denied, and then she was miraculously released.
Cass: Makes you wonder doesn’t it?
Frankie: Of course it does, and you guys are just gonna have to trust me. If Christy is up to something, I’m gonna find out what it is.
Christy creeps up to the living room and listens as Kirkland and Grant continue their conversation.
Kirkland: I’ll see mom later. We’re talking about you and Christy.
Grant: Listen I’ve told you everything that I’m going to tell you. The less you know, the better.
Kirkland: You called in a favor didn’t you? You got the governor to pardon Christy of her crimes so she can help you get Paulina back? That’s a crock dad.
Christy, while listening, has a flashback.
Christy: Eric, I’m so glad to see you! Did you do it?
Eric: Yep. I got everything out of there. It wasn’t easy though.
Christy: Oh my sweet boy. You sure know how to make your mama proud.
Then she has another flashback...(EPISODE 155)
Grant: I’m gonna ask you again, what happened to Scooter?
Christy: He and I were good friends, and I’m gonna miss him dearly.
Grant: What the hell are you talking about? I just talked to him about an hour ago.
Christy: Well, Scooter had an unfortunate…occurrence. From what I heard, he just couldn’t take it anymore. He couldn’t stand the pressure of knowing what he knew, so he killed himself. Luckily for him, he had a friend like me, so what he knew, I now know.
Grant: And just what is it that you think you have knowledge of?
Christy: I know that it’s something you’ve been looking for, but that’s not all.
Grant: I don’t think you have any idea who you’re trying to play games with.
Christy: Oh. I know exactly who you are. You’re the very powerful, very wealthy, Grant Harrison. If you want something to happen, it usually does.
Grant: I’m leaving.
Grant turns to leave and then...
Christy: I also know about your connection to Mary-Frances’s twin brother, and I know where the dossier is.
Grant: It was you. Who did you order to break into my house?
Christy: Now I’ve got your attention. I’m not gonna ask you for much...just one small favor...get me the hell out of here.
Christy interrupts Grant and Kirkland’s conversation.
Christy: Oh I’m sorry. I couldn’t help but overhearing. I am very grateful for your father helping me to get out of that facility. The least I could do is to help him get back the woman he loves.
Kirkland looks back and forth at Grant and Christy.
Kirkland: No...something’s not right here. This isn’t over dad.
Grant: He’s getting suspicious.
Christy: That much I gathered.
Grant: You’re gonna need to move out.
Christy: I’d like a suite downtown.
Grant: Whatever. I’ll make a call.
Christy: You better throw Kirkland off our trail, because if you don’t, this could blow up in all of our faces. Where did he go anyway?
Grant: I presume he went to tell his mother’s side of the family that he’s back in town.
Lindsay: I asked you a question.
Gregory: How do you know my dad?
Michele: I told her he was a friend of the family.
Lindsay: You said he was your uncle, and you have the same name of my dead sister. Whatever game you’re playing, it’s very cruel.
Michele: It’s not a game!
Lindsay: Then what is this? Who are you?
Jake, Vicky, Donna, and Michael walk in.
Lindsay: Jake, what are you doing here?
Jake goes directly to Michele.
Jake: I knew you’d come here.
Lindsay: You knew what? What’s going on?
Donna and Michael also slowly approach Michele.
Donna: Honey, what did you say to Lindsay?
Michele: Why is everyone treating me like I’m fragile?
Michael: Baby we’re just concerned.
Michele: Nothing is wrong. I just came to see…
Lindsay: Will someone tell me what the hell is going on?
Jake: This is your sister Michele. Reginald changed her face. She knew who you were all along.
Vicky: Why is everyone ganging up on her? You are acting as though she committed a crime. All she came to do is see Lindsay.
Lindsay: No wonder she said John was her uncle.
Gregory: My God...you’re...you’re alive. Wow.
Lindsay suddenly doubles over in pain as she grabs her stomach. She notices blood on one of her thighs...and so does Gregory.
Jake: My God.
Gregory: We’re going to see a doctor.
Gregory: This isn’t gas.
Jake: What’s going on?
Gregory: She’s been having stomach pains.
Gregory, Lindsay, and Jake leave as Donna, Michael and Vicky continue to talk to Michele.
Donna: Why don’t you come with us? We’ll take you home.
Vicky: Why don’t we all go...and see if Jake needs anything.
Michael: Honey we’ll be waiting by the elevators for you.
Vicky: I love you.
Donna: We all do.
Michele: I’ll be right behind you.
Michael, Vicky and Donna leave the exam room. Michele takes a deep breath, and walks to the door, but before she approaches it, Bridget walks in and locks it.
Michele: I was leaving.
Bridget: No...not yet.
Michele: Everybody’s waiting for me.
Bridget: You’re gonna tell me what you’re up to.
Michele: Are you sure you wanna do this now?
Bridget: Yes Michele...now.
FREEZE FRAME ON SPLIT SCREEN OF MICHELE AND BRIDGET...SLOW FADE OUT...END OF EPISODE 190
This first entry for 2014 will be going over one of the central stories I've been working on for 2014, and will continue well into the new year. The saga of Titan and it's big oil partner, EnerNext.
EnerNext: The Corprate Saga Continues
Upon Nick Fallon's misadventures in the river in the Winter of 2013 at the hands of Gabi Hernandez, Kate Roberts, and Sami Brady, Nick was presumed dead. However, a nature-loving Brit by the name of Percy rescued Nick from a wet and icy death, taking him to his secluded cottage in the woods north of Salem, where Nick was able to recuperate, as well as plot his revenge against everyone who had wronged him.
Speaking with Percy at length during those long days in the cabin, Nick discovered a plan by a major energy company, EnerNext, to buy up all the land in the rural area north-west of Salem. The area was found to have a potentially lucrative fossil fuel deposit buried beneath it, mostly in hard-to-access tar sands in the soil. EnerNext needed to purchase Percy's many acres of land to commence their fracking operations. However, as Percy is an environmentalist, and avid owl-watcher, he could simply not sell his land, knowing the owls he found so fascinating would be driven away by the clear-cutting, and the extreme amount of pollution created by EnerNext's operation.
Nick grew sympathetic to Percy's problems, and, upon blackmailing Kate Roberts into rehiring him at Titan subsidiary MadWorld, promised to assist him in taking down EnerNext, if in exchange, Percy assisted him in taking down Nick's enemies. Luckily for both of them, they shared a few enemies in common.
After researching the situation, Nick decided to find an ally in the press to help him in his mission. He tracked down Nicole Walker, who worked as an investigative reporter for Titan TV. Nicole, desperate to get a foothold in the news business once again after her disasterous stint working for Eric Brady at St. Luke's, was initially repelled by the story of a local birdwatcher reticent to sell his land to a corporation. She was equally repelled at the thought of dealing with a convicted murderer and all-around sleaze like Nick. But the more she dug into the story, the more the story excited her. Here was a story that could really launch her career back on track. The only missing piece of the puzzle was: Who was pulling the strings to get the funding and the local backing for the project?
Nick did some digging, and uncovered the very convenient truth, that EnerNext was dealing very closely with a local firm, one that Nick could easily use to his and Percy's advantage: Titan. This was less convenient for Nicole, however. Confronting EnerNext's CEO at the company's press conference held at Horton Town Square. Her barrage of tough questions for Tyler Houston, EnerNext's CEO, ranged from the environmental impact of the fracking operations, to the perception of environmental racism by virtue of the much richer oil deposits near the more affluent east end of Salem. After several minutes of questioning, punctuated by a gathered crowd of hundreds of protesters, eagerly rooting for Nicole as she put Tyler on the hot seat, Tyler finally was rescued by a visibly angered Victor, who erupted from behind the temporary stage built for the conference. Tyler announced at that moment that Titan would be acquiring EnerNext's operation.
Nicole was stunned and angered, having put the fate of her career in jeopardy now that she realized that the very people she was fighting in this story were her own employers. Nicole confronted Nick about the revelation, realizing almost instantly that Nick knew that Titan and EnerNext were to merge, and didn't say anything to her about it, as it would inevitably lead to Nicole giving up the story. However, Nicole didn't realize that while she was making a fool of herself at the press conference, Nick was covering his bases, and broke into Nicole's office at Titan TV, attempting to steal back the information Nicole had collected about EnerNext during her investigation. What he came away with wasn't what he was looking for, but was much more beneficial to him.
Upon opening the folder, Nick discovered evidence that Nicole had withheld from Eric regarding the identity of the doctor that created the drug cocktail used by Kristen DiMera to rape then-Father Eric, as well as the makeup of the drug itself. When Nick confronted Nicole with the evidence, Nicole was forced to continue working on the story, consequences be damned. But Nick knew to keep everything under the radar, as he had another ace up his sleeve.
While digging for information, Nick stumbled upon Sheryl Connors, MadWorld's newest graphic designer, in a dark office with her friend Jordan Ridgeway. However, Nick recognized the two immediately as their true identities, Kaylie Matthews and Siobhan McKinnon: Environmental activists accused of blowing up a bank in Canada during the G8 Protests. Nick knew that they were both where they weren't supposed to be, and that they all had the same goal: bring down EnerNext and Titan. By threatening to out Sheryl and Jordan as their true identities, Nick secured their complicity in his plans.
However, none of them were aware that Kate Roberts was already a step or two ahead of them. With Kate insanely jealous of Jordan's budding relationship with Rafe Hernandez, Kate had hired a private investigator to find out any information he could about Jordan Ridgeway's past. But, after sneaking into Jordan's apartment and uncovering her collection of fake IDs, it took very little time to find out who Jordan really was.
Presenting the proof of Jordan's real identity to Roman Brady, Kate hoped to be rid of Jordan once and for all. Not so. Due to a legal loophole, Kaylie (Jordan) and Siobhan (Sheryl) had been acquited for the bank bombing in Canada. Roman knew that the two women were up to something, however, and agreed to help Kate find some answers before it was too late. Roman approached the ISA to bring Kate's daughter, ISA agent Billie Reed back to Salem, under the guise of working alongside her mother at MadWorld Cosmetics, all the while actually protecting her and helping her take down Sheryl and Jordan.
The next step in Nick's plan would be to break apart all the elements that would allow the fracking project to become a reality. Knowing that Titan TV was a crucial element in Titan/EnerNext's plan to make the community see the benefits of the oil sands project, essentially rendering Titan TV to little more than a source of corporate propaganda, Nick set about ensuring the TV station became an entity independant of Titan. Knowing that Victor's brazen dismissal of FCC regulations, and basic journalistic principles would not sit well with the Titan board, and also recognizing not only would it look better on Titan if they shed the money-losing TV operation, he set about influencing (read: blackmailing) the members of the board that he could control. Namely Kate.
Using what he knew of Kate's involvement in his attempted drowning, Kate is tasked with influencing the vote against Victor's plans to retain Titan TV, thus giving an independent voice to the news against the EnerNext oil sands project, allowing Nicole to continue investigating and reporting the potential dangers of allowing the project to come to fruition, and breaking apart the Titan empire piece by piece, all under the guise of saving Titan's shareholders money.
Who stands to gain from Titan's loss of their TV station? And who is giving Nick orders? None other than Stefano DiMera.
Are Nick's intentions simply to right past wrongs and save Percy's land from destruction at the hands of big oil? Or is there something much more sinister at work?
Please feel free to comment and to ask questions. And thanks all of you who read my Days of Our Lives every week! Happy 2015!
Tom-Well what's got you in this great of a mood
Maggie- Our baby boy is coming home today. As a matter of fact I just seen his car pull up the drive way.
Tom- Well then I guess we need to make him feel welcomed back home
Tom and Maggie walks towards the front door as it opens and Ethan walks into the Manor carrying a duffle bag. He drops the bag and hugs both of his parents.
Ethan- Oh it feels great to be home again.
Maggie- and we are very happy to have you home again and hopefully this time for good.
Ethan- well as of right now I plan on making it my permanent home.
Tom- Good and if you need I can get you a job at the hospital.
Ethan- no need to do that dad Aaron has already gotten me a job at The Wild Spot.
Tom- that freak bar where all them freaks go.
Ethan- dad just because they're gay doesn't make them freaks and I think me working there will be a good thing.
At Destiny Cafe Sage and her fiance Brady are sitting at a table drinking coffee when Sage's best friend Hope Cooper walks into the cafe and sits down at their table.
Hope- You will never believe who I just seen back in town
Brady- Your Brain?
Hope- Haha very funny
Sage- Who did you see back in town?
Hope- Brian Jenkins!
Brady- Who's that?
Sage- he's an ex of mine that went away not long after we broke up
Hope- yeah I'm sure he's finally over you.
Sage- let's just hope he is
At the Police Department Edwin Callison is sitting behind his desk when his boss Commissioner Charity Summers walks out of her office and over to his desk.
Charity- we have one hell of a huge problem
Edwin- what do you mean?
Charity- Brian Jenkins! The man that torched your sister a couple years back who had been reportedly released from prison. Well I just got a call from the Mayor asking me why I haven't caught the escaped prisoner yet.
Edwin- So he wasn't set free?
Charity- No he wasn't suppose to get out the court screwed up their paper work and released him instead of the guy that was suppose to be released. So I need you to get out their on the street and start looking for him.
Across town in an abandon warehouse in a sound proof room Brian Jenkins is walking around the room looking at an 18 year old named Stephen Donovan who is tied down to the bed.
Brian- Oh do you not like the place that I've chosen for you. Well I thought it was really nice but yet you've never seen the inside of a prison have you? No! But I know your father has and he still is. The bad thing about you never being in prison is you really don't know how it works in there. You see if you want something from someone you have to give something for them to help you. Or in my case you just take it. See your father Mike is in prison for killing your mother which I'm pretty sure you already knew that. See I needed his help and he gay me an offer and I declined it which made him very mad. So for pay back he made me his bitch, which is exactly what I'm going to do to you.
At Memorial Hospital Tom Callison is the Chief of Staff. Tom is making his way around the hospital when he notices something very unusual by the ER doors. Tom walks over and sees that there is a baby in the basket. He picks up the baby.
Tom- Well aren't you just a precious little girl
Tom carry's the baby back into the hospital

PART 1 - AT THE PARK
Sebastian West walks into the park with his book bag and sits on the bench. He looks to the left, then to the right and is certain that nobody is there. He takes out a small bag of marijuana, then looks for something else while focused on the bag.
Sydney offers him a lighter. This breaks his focus on the bag and he looks up at her.
Sydney: Looks like you need one of these.
Sebastian: Thank you.
He reaches out for the lighter, but Sydney pulls it back.
Sydney: So are you gonna smoke that all by yourself?
MICHAEL’S APARTMENT - Kiki walks in with a gift bag, smiles, and takes a red teddy out of it. She turns to the table, which is pristinely set with two candles, handkerchiefs, silverware, two champagne glasses, and a silver, ice filled bucket with a bottle of champagne in it. She then gets a call on her cell phone.
Kiki: Hmm if it isn’t my sexy fiance. Wait till you get home.
Michael is at ELQ sitting at his desk staring at his computer.
Michael: Hey babe. I’m...gonna be home a little late tonight.
Kiki: Let me guess...ELQ stuff.
Michael: Yeah we just got word that they’re gonna announce the winning bid for the Waterfront Project. I’m sorry. I promise I’ll make it up to you.
Kiki (sighing): Okay. I can’t lie and say I’m not disappointed.
Michael: I know I know. I’ll see you later. Love you.
Kiki: Love you, too.
AT THE QUARTERMAINES..
Monica steps away from the living room door as she talks to Tracy.
Monica: I’m gonna do whatever it takes to keep Carly away from Jason.
Tracy: And how do you plan on doing that? It hasn’t worked all these years. What makes you think it’s gonna be effective now?
Monica: I brought down Sonny Corinthos didn’t I?
Monica flashes back to giving a recording of Sonny admitting that he shot A.J. to Anna Devane…
Anna: What is this?
Monica: Listen to it. It’ll get you the fish you’ve been trying to catch for years.
Monica flashes back to the present.
Tracy: I don’t know how you managed to pull that off, but Carly isn’t gonna be that simple.
Monica: Trust me none of this is easy, but I’ll be damned if I let Carly destroy my other son.
Monica and Tracy turn around and there are Carly and Jason
CAMERA PAN ON CARLY AND JASON, QUICK CUT TO THEME SONG.
Sebastian and Sydney are sitting next to each other on the park bench, and they have just finished smoking a joint.
Sebastian: You better not tell anyone about this.
Sydney: Oh please. It’s not the end of the world if someone finds you smoke weed. Besides, can you tell me where I can get some more of this good stuff from?
Sebastian: How do I know you’re not a narc?
Sydney immediately stands up.
Sydney: Don’t be ridiculous. Narcs normally don’t smoke joints!
Sebastian: Find your own weed guy.
Sydney: You’re a total ass!
Sebastian: Thank you.
Sydney: I’m hungry.
Sebastian: Go get something to eat then.
Morgan is outside of Kelly’s sitting on a bench, and Kiki walks up. Morgan notices her.
Morgan: Hey Kiki.
Kiki: Morgan what’s up?
Morgan: Just went for a run. What’s up with you?
Kiki: Nothing, just getting something to eat.
Morgan: Are you sure that’s it?
Kiki: No it’s not.
Carly: I would never hurt Jason.
Monica: You...are poison. I lost one son because of you and Sonny and I won’t stand by and watch that happen again!
Carly: I’m sorry, Monica, for your loss. I wouldn’t know what to do if I lost Michael or Morgan, but A.J. made his own choices.
Monica: You’re a human tornado. You leave destruction in your wake.
Jason: Mom that’s enough.
Monica: It’s true. You need to stay away from Carly before she destroys you.
Tracy: Jason we’ve gotta get to ELQ. The winning bids are gonna be announced soon.
Tracy walks out the door, and as she closes the front door, she walks and looks in her purse for something. Suddenly, Sydney bumps into her, and Tracy notices a lighter that falls out of Sydney’s purse.
Sydney: My God! Not only are you a bitch, you’re a clumsy bitch.
Tracy picks up the lighter.
Tracy: Hmm what would this be for?
Sydney: What is it to you?
Sydney tries to walk past Tracy but Tracy stops her.
Tracy: You wreak!
Sydney: Wreaks of what?
Tracy: Are you really gonna try to play coy with me Syd?
Sydney: I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Sydney: I can’t wait till Luke gets back. It’s been a long time for you hasn’t it? You really need to find a hobby.
Tracy: Does Maya know that you light up joints?
Sydney: She knows all about that.
Tracy: Maybe where you lived before, but not here in Port Charles.
Sydney: Is there a point you’re trying to make?
Tracy: I bet Maya would ship you to an iron clad, maximum security, prison-like rehab facility. In fact, why don’t we call her right now and let her know...
Sydney (grabbing Tracy’s phone): Please...don’t tell my sister.
Jason: Mom can you watch Danny while I go to the office? Sam should be coming soon to get him.
Monica: Of course I’d watch my grandson.
Carly: I have to go to the MetroCourt.
Monica: On your way out of Port Charles I hope.
Monica walks into the living room and sits on the couch as she watches Danny continue to play with his toys.
Monica: Hey there my little grandson. Oh I just so wish Alan were here to see you. I’m gonna be in your life as much as possible.
Robin walks in with a suitcase, and Monica does not hear or see her immediately.
Monica: I never even got to know your brother Jake, but your big brother, Michael is thriving, and running ELQ.
Robin: Big brother Michael? Monica what are you talking about? The only brother Danny had was Jake.
Monica turns around and is shocked.

Daniel- this is your first time isn't it?
JJ- what no I've had sex before

"Jaxon hugs Bridget"
Jaxon- what are you doing back here in town?
Bridget- I came back for a visit but as soon as I get back in town I hear that you are getting married, Drake is in the hospital from an overdose and Donovan Enterprises has gone nuts. What the hell happened when I left?
Jaxon- I don't know I guess we are all going crazy

Claire what's going on if it wasn't anything serious you would just wait until later to tell us, so what's going on?
Has my brother gotten worse?
Claire- yes he has

Hello Frankie, Can I get one hotdog please
Frankie- anything for you. So tell me hows working at Barrington Global going for you.
Josie- Well I'll tell you after today's over with and thanks for the hotdog

Tyler- Josie what brings you by today on your day off
I just came to clean out my office, you know after you told me to start being an ass like yourself or get lost. Well I chose to get lost. So if you'll excuse me I have an office I need to pack.
Tyler- wait just a minute. Josie do you at least have another job or something to do until you find another job because if not you can keep your job here.
Josie- Tyler you can pretend to be nice all you want but come on it's me I've worked here for 15 years and believe me I've hated it everyday and besides I've decided to open my own night club.
"Josie walks off to her office, Tyler follows"
Tyler- a night club, are you serious about this Josie?
Josie- yes I am because I know I don't have to come to work everyday and deal with an ass of a boss like you. So if you would please leave so I can get what I need to get done

(EXT: London, England- Edmund's Creepy Castle)
--Ashton sits in the living room, on the phone, and learns of Eden, Kirk, and Pearl's impending arrivals. He smiles and says that it's time that everything be put in place so he, Kelly, and everyone else can live "happily" ever after. Kelly enters the room, able to catch the last part of his sentence, and he hurries off the phone.
"Happily ever after huh? I thought that was already decided on our wedding day, Mr. Lavery."
"Oh, it was, it was, Mrs. Lavery. I just got some news that should delight you and perhaps give you some pleasure during your downtime on our extended stay here in London. I'm sure you're about tired of my father, Christine, and all the construction on the East Wing by now."
"Actually, I find your father quite fascinating. A bit mysterious, but he never ceases to hold my interest. So......what is this happy news that is supposed to bring me such delight?"
"Your sister is actually on your father's jet, on her way to London right now. I've invited her....and her friends to stay here with us. At the castle."
"Oh? And what friends are you talking about? Julia? Mary?"
"Actually, they're both men. Pearl Bradford, that old friend of yours and my #1 fan, and Kirk Cranston."
"KIRK CRANSTON? Eden is coming HERE.....with Kirk Cranston? What the hell would possess her to bring that man here....let alone on daddy's jet?"
"I sense there's some sort of history there."
"Oh, not much. Just that they were married years ago. And he attempted to kill her. Multiple times. And gaslight her. And kidnapped her...and Cruz....again, multiple times."
"Doesn't sound like the ideal travel companion."
"My point exactly. It's all so strange. Why would Eden leave her children, Cruz's parents, and daddy, to come to London with Kirk Cranston, of all people?"
"Sounds like you'll have plenty to discuss over dinner tonight. They should be arriving before then and I've asked Christine to prepare a special meal for all of us....and our guests."
"Guests?" Edmund says, entering the room.
"Yes, father, guests. Kelly's sister, Eden, and a couple of her friends will be arriving later. I hope you don't mind that I've taken the liberty of inviting them to stay here. I figure there's plenty of room for everyone. It is a CASTLE, after all."
"Kelly, would you be so kind as to give my son and I a moment alone?"
"Of course. Obviously my husband here should have discussed this with you first. You've been very gracious to let us stay here as long as you have. I hope you don't feel too put out that Ashton here has invited my sister and her.....friends to stay. He's just trying to make me happy is all, as he always does. I'll go and get a cup of tea from Christine in the kitchen. Would either of you like anything?"
"Nothing at all my dear, the privacy will be quite enough."
Kelly exits the room, muttering to herself about Eden, Kirk, and :Pearl being the oddest of combinations. Back in the living room, Edmund glares at his son.
"Just what are you up to? It's been hard enough keeping Kelly away from her mother....now you've got her sister coming as well? Just what in the devil are you up to?"
"I suggest you listen and listen good. If you want this charade of a life that you've created for yourself and your pod in the East Wing to continue, you'll do everything that I ask of you tonight. Otherwise, I'll expose you to the Capwell girls, who will surely go running to daddy...."
"You wouldn't dare. You wouldn't risk your marriage to Kelly Capwell, that I know."
"You're right, I wouldn't. And you'll understand things as they unfold today. You just do exactly as I say or this whole thing will blow up in your face tonight father. Do I make myself clear?"
"Why you little.....just who do you think you are speaking to me this way? How dare you assume that I would go along with this, risk everything FOR...my God, if your mother were alive...."
"I thought she was. Upstairs. In her private bedroom. Isn't that the double entendre you're leading right now? You're just going to have to trust me for now father. As for now, I must be going. I have some business to attend to. Please, keep Kelly entertained while I'm gone. She seems to find you.....fascinating. If only she knew just how interesting the life you're really leading right now really is...."
Ashton exits and as he leaves, Edmund takes out his phone and dials Pamela.
"We've got trouble. Big trouble."
(EXT: Lionel and Augusta's London Flat)
--Augusta sits in her satin robe, staring at her husband across the breakfast table. Clearly uncomfortable, she attempts to break the ice.
"Well that went rather smoothly yesterday."
"Those aren't the words I'd use if I were you, Augusta. How dare you keep this from me for as long as you have. How dare you!"
"How dare I? After what that woman and your tawdry affairs with her have done to me over the years, you should consider yourself lucky I clued you in at all."
"Yes, lucky. I couldn't care less about Sophia and the last thing I want is for you to go waltzing down memory lane with her. But, I did the noble, unselfish thing and told you the truth. I thought you'd be rather proud of me."
"Yes, proud. What is with these one word inquisitions you're spitting at me? If I had my way, that woman would have stayed dead and buried where she belonged. Ironic, though, isn't it. Here we are, 34 years later, and it's 1979 all over again. Sophia is operating under a false name, with no previous recollection of her old life, Marcello is her only confidante....it's de ja vous. Only this time...well, I'm not quite sure I understand the logistics of it. She didn't fall off a yacht for pete's sake, she was pronounced dead. By Saint Mary Duvall of all people and there's no way Sister Mary would lie about this sort of thing. You have to give credit where credit is due....Edmund has pulled off quite the caper here. I think you'd rather enjoy his torturing of CC, if it didn't involve you're quintessential love, Sophia, that is. And here I am, allowing you to play hero to the tawdry slut you cheated on me with and created that.....circus performing son of your's with. And the only reason he's even alive is because your mother switched the babies all those years ago. Otherwise, Sophia would have shot your only child with her."
"Thank you, Augusta, for the refresher course and the lovely walk down memory lane. Well one thing is clear- I couldn't get through to her. And if I can't get through to her...there's only one other man who can....CC!"
"Lionel, have you gone mad? Did you not listen to the history course that Marcello gave you? CC has a past with Loretta as well as Sophia. His involvement could make this situation more chaotic than it already is and worsen Sophia's condition, which God knows is the lassst thing you'd want to do."
"He has a right to know that his wife is alive, Augusta. Whether I like him, hate him, respect him, or not, he loves her and is grieving for her. It isn't right that we keep this from him."
Augusta walks across the table and hits Lionel on the back of the head.
"Would you get your brain wired back in, Lionel? We need to put Sophia first here and involving CC is only going to cause a bigger mess than this already is. I suggest that we at least wait until we here from Marcello before we do anything rash. Where is that "dame" of a mother of yours when I need her to talk some sense into you? We at least need to wait until we hear from Marcello first. At the very least, he did put that tracking device in the suitcase, so we'll know- Sophi--Loretta's--oh whatever the hell that tramp is calling herself's whereabouts are at any given time. Patience, dear. I doubt this is the last we've heard from Marcello."
(EXT: Lady DuMonde's Mansion)
--Ashton is greeted at the door by the butler and requests to see Marcello at once. Marcello swiftly enters the room and wonders aloud what Ashton could want with him. Ashton suggests that they talk somewhere in private. He explains that he accidentally stumbled into Sophia's room and realizes what his father has done and wants to right the wrong. Marcello admits to a knowing Ashton that he already knows about Sophia and is trying to jog her memory. Ashton quizzically asks if anyone else knows and Marcello tells him only Lionel and Augusta.
"Doesn't Sophia have a history with the Lockridges?"
"A long one- she had a forbidden love affair with Lionel for a good portion of her life."
"Well couldn't you use that and your hypnosis techniques to kick start her memory?"
"I've already thought of that and I tried it yesterday, but Sophia and Augusta exchanged words and Loretta....Sophia got cold feet. She's truly convinced that she's your mother."
"My mother-in-law is brainwashed into believing she's my mother. Sounds like something out of a soap opera."
"You'd think so, but this has happened before, and the last time it did, it caused insurmountable, permanent damage to the Capwells, especially to Channing, Eden, and CC"
"Of course. Well, if I could get you in to see her again tonight, do you think you could get Lionel to come alone?"
"I'm not sure. Augusta can be a handful and she'll want to come but.... I can try."
"Try you will, if you want to bring Sophia back. And you will succeed. You seem a smart man, Marcello. I'm sure you can come up with a good reason to bring Lionel to the castle on his own. Here"
Ashton writes down his phone number.
"This is my cell number. You call me when you're on the way. Try to make it around 7:30, as we will all be at dinner at that time and it will be much easier to sneak you into the mansion."
"All of you?"
"Yes, my father, my wife, her sister..."
"Eden's going to be there?"
"Yes but she'll be at dinner. I haven't told Kelly or any of the Capwells about Sophia because.....well, because my wife has told me the sordid family history and I'd hate to put any of them through that again before Sophia realizes that she's....Sophia. I'm disgusted by what my father has done- it could damn well ruin my marriage and there's no way in hell I'm going to let that happen. You just follow my instructions and I'll make sure you're able to see Sophia. Now, I must be going, as my father will soon be wondering where I am. I was very careful not to be followed. I don't want him to have any idea that I know about this, nor that I'm helping you."
"I appreciate it Ashton You're doing a good thing."
"Yes well, I hope so and I do hope that everything goes as planned. Now as I said, I must be going."
Ashton sees himself out and immediately dials his phone.
"Ok, it's all set. I hope you're ready for everything that's about to happen."
The camera pans to a man in a suit, sitting in an office, without his face being shown.
A familiar, English accented voice is heard on the other line.
"Oh, I'm ready. I'm more than ready."
They hang up and the camera pans up to the mystery man.....

Tom: Do I look fine? (off Casey holding his hands up for mercy) Sorry.
Casey: No problem but does this story even has any truth to it? I mean we haven't seen or heard from Uncle Scott since I was child. You sure Emily isn't fabricating this to p*ss you off?
Tom: No she isn't. For once she isn't lying in that rag she calls a paper.
Casey: (confused) So then I don't get while you're mad at Emily . . .
Tom: Because she's ruining my campaign! Don't you see it!
Casey: Dad, I doubt anyone is taking Emily or her paper seriously. Her past isn't squeaky clean either . . .
Tom: But when you're running up against someone with a stellar track record such as Carter Wallace--
Casey: Dad, you need to chill.
Casey goes and sits on the sofa. He pats on it to indicate he wants Tom to join him, to relax. After fighting it, Tom gives in.
Casey: Dad, you have a stellar track record too.

Lisa: What? So you've been in town for awhile now! (to Carter) And you knew?!
Carter searches for the right words, but before he can get them out, Lisa pops him in the face. Carter now holds his face, shocked.
Lisa: Now I see why you were using me--getting close to me. You wanted to stick it to me and Tom. (pointing to Scott) And he's the best way to do so?
Scott: He didn't even know I was related you to until the night I arrived in Oakdale.
Lisa: Oh really? So how do you two know each other?
Scott: We met awhile back in Somerset. I had a small practice there, he was there visiting--
Lisa: So you two became buddies and decided to come here and run for district attorney?
Carter: No! I didn't even ask him to join me until weeks after I decided to come to Oakdale.
Lisa: (stewing) Oh OK . . . So Tom knew you were here?
Scott: Yes. I've been here since Christmas.
Tom, Margo, & Casey come rushing in and up to Lisa, Carter, & Scott.

Harley: Umm . . . Phillip, I didn’t—
Phillip: What is about you not wanting Zach attend Lincoln Prep? It’s a good school!

Alan Michael nods understandingly. He peeks in the closet and sees that it has been cleared. He looks to Holly, anxious.
AM: Where is she?
Holly: She couldn’t’ve gone too far.
AM: I wouldn’t put it past her.
The door closes and Alan Michael and Holly turn to see India leaning on the door.
India: Looking for Caroline or should I say Hope?
Alan Michael’s jaw drops. He charges towards India with rage in his eyes, but Holly grabs him, stopping him.
AM: You! I should’ve known it! You—
India: You better settle down. Not if you want me to remain silent.
AM: Remain silent? (trying to break free) That can be arranged!
Holly: (restraining him) Calm down! (to India) Where is Hope?
India: Oh Holly . . . (shaking head) you knew about Hope too? This gets better and better.
Holly: India . . .

Hope emerges from the fog looking destroyed, mascara dripping down her eyes as if she’s been crying nonstop.
Ed: Caroline, you all right?
Ed steps off the porch and walks over towards her.
Ed: Do I need to call Alan?
Ed: Did something happen? Did Alan harm you?

Harley: What Phillip?
Phillip: This has to stop—this tension between you and me.
Harley: There is no tension.
Phillip: There is.
Harley: Phillip! (gets up and points to the door) Goodbye!
Phillip: I said no.
Harley walks over and grabs the phone off the end table and starts to dial.
Phillip: (sighs) Who are you calling?
Harley: Frank. So he can come and whoop your ass and take you to jail.
Phillip crosses over and struggles the phone away from Harley. Then he tosses it across the room and shatters into pieces.
Phillip: Now lets sit and talk like adults.
Harley: Talk like adults? Screw you!
Phillip: Why do you hate me, Harley? Why! Is this because of how I took Zach from you? I thought you’ve forgiven me!
Harley: Well you thought wrong.
Harley grabs her keys. She goes to exit but Phillip grabs her by the arm, restraining her.
