The Carrington's Season 1 Episode 8
Episode Title: This Is Just The Beginning
(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.....

PREVIOUSLY on HEAVEN'S MEADOW:
(Hayley is standing on the ledge. Tears are streaming down her face. Her entire body shakes as she looks down at the road 23 stories below her. She inhales sharply and reaches one hand behind her, grabbing the railing. With her other hand, she raises the bottle of vodka to her lips and takes a sip. Her hands shaking uncontrollably, a large splash of vodka splashes onto her chin and robe. Sobbing, she throws the bottle behind her and hears as it smashes on the balcony. She wipes the makeup soaked tears from her eyes one last time, and lets go of the railing. Just as she begins to lose her balance, a hand reaches out and grabs her arm, steadying her.)
James: You can't do this, Hayley.
(She turns to look at him through her blurry, tear soaked eyes.)
Hayley: Oh, don't pretend to care.You don't even know me.
James: Maybe not, butI know damn well that I'm not about to let you jump off of this ledge.
(He reaches out and wraps his arms around her waist, lifting her over the railing and back onto the balcony.)
Hayley: Leave it to me to have a one night stand with someone that actually gives a damn.
James: You honestly expected me to let you jump?
Hayley: I didn't expect you to be awake.
James: Well, thank God I was.
Hayley: Just because you pulled me off of one ledge doesn't mean I won't find another.
James: Look, I don't know what's going on in your life, but I know that this isn't the answer.
Hayley: You're damn right. You don't know anything about my life. You have no idea what I go through every single day. And you have no business interfering in my personal life.
James: You can say whatever you want, but I don't have to know you. I don't have to know you, to know this isn't the answer. My mother killed herself when I was 5 years old, and it has haunted me for my entire life. And I know who you are, Hayley. I know you have children at home. And I'm not letting you do to them what my mother did to me. I'm not letting you take the coward's way out.
(Hayley slaps him across the face.)
Hayley: Don't you ever call me a coward. How dare you.
(At this point, tears are once again streaming down her face. She stumbles away from him, and inadvertently walks barefoot directly through the shattered glass on the ground. She winces in pain as blood begins trailing from her foot.)
(James moves towards her.)
James: Let me help you.
(Hayley looks up at him, a mixture of pain and hatred in her eyes.)
Hayley: You stay away from me.
(She limps backwards throw the doorway and into the hotel room. She grabs her purse from the chair, as well as her clothes from the ground, and stumbles from the room wearing nothing but a silk robe and her underwear.)
(Inside Skye's club. Blair is standing with Jack and Billy.)
Blair: Excuse me?
Jack: This is Billy. He's my boyfriend.
Billy: It's nice to meet yo--
(Blair cuts him off.)
Blair: Jack, I don't have time for your games. I have a lot going on right now.
Jack: Mom, this isn't a game.
Blair: You were livid at me for sending you to boarding school, and even more angry that you had to stay for the summer program. And what do you do? You skip school and pull a stunt like this.
Jack: This isn't a joke, Mom.
Blair: You expect me to believe that you're gay? You expect me to believe that you skipped school and hitch-hiked to New Hampshire to tell me that you're gay?
Blair: Well, I don't believe you.
(Her voice cracks. She turns and walks away from them, to the other side of the room. She picks up a stack of papers, and begins fumbling through them. Jack moves towards her.)
Jack: Mom, please. I need you to--
(Blair swivels around and cuts him off.)
Blair: Why now? If this is true - Why now? In the middle of your summer term, you show up and tell me you have a boyfriend? You could have waited a few weeks until I visited. But you expect me to believe your story, when you show up here and drop a bombshell like this? I know you, Jack. You're up to something.
(Jack is chocked up. He swallows the lump in his throat and chokes back tears.)
Jack: Mom, I couldn't take it anymore.
Blair: Take what?
Jack: The bullying.
(Blair is visibly taken aback by this. Blair and Jack lock eyes for a moment. Tears well up once more in Jack's eyes, and he turns away from his mother. He walks several feet to the other side of the room and sits at an empty table. Billy, still standing by the door, glances towards Jack, and then Blair. He moves across the room towards Blair.)
Billy: Jack and I met in chemistry class this past year. We became friends instantly, and eventually it progressed to more. I've been openly gay for about a year now, and once Jack and I became close, he felt comfortable enough with me to admit that he had been doubting his sexual orientation.
Blair: And you just swooped right in and took advantage of that?
(Jack stands, visibly angered by this remark.)
Billy: I never came onto Jack. But once he accepted it, we began to explore our feelings for one another.
Blair: Jack, when did you start having these...feelings?
Jack: Last year...For Shane. I know I treated him horribly, and that's why. When my friends started bullying him, I hated it. Because from the minute that I met him, I felt...something. Of course I was in denial about it, and so I started bullying him harder than anyone else so that no one would know. But I hated it, because I had...feelings for him. Everything that I did was to cover that up.
(Blair sighs and rests her head in her hand for a long moment.)
Blair: Well, what is this that you said about bullying?
Jack: It was late at night, and Billy and I were down by the water. We shared a kiss, but we didn't know anyone was around. Apparently one of the guys from the football team saw, and he told everyone. The next day I came back to my room after class and someone had broken in. My room had been completely trashed, and they spray painted...
Blair: What, Jack? They spray painted what?
Jack: They spray painted the word fag on my wall.
(Blair is visibly horrified. A look of sheer heartbreak spreads across her face. In that moment, all denial that she had was wiped completely out of her.)
Blair: You're serious.
Billy: He is.
Blair: Why didn't you tell me this sooner?!
Jack: I didn't tell anyone, Mom. It would have only made things worse. But I couldn't handle it any more. The harassment was too much. Everywhere I went, they would call me names and mock me. I know I deserve it, after what I did to Shane...But I couldn't handle it, Mom.
(Blair stands. There are tears in her eyes now. She moves towards Jack, who also stands. She embraces him tightly for a long moment.)
Blair: I'm so, so sorry baby. Everything's going to be okay.
(Inside Lindsay's apartment. She is standing near the door, with Tad. There is a suitcase next to her.)
Tad: I can't believe I just got back, and now you have to leave.
Lindsay: I know, but there's just something that I need to take care of. And now that you're officially living here, we'll see each other so much more. No more back and forth to Pine Valley.
Tad: Thank God.
(The two kiss.)
Tad: Where are you going again?
Lindsay: To Seattle, to see my sister. She's had some crisis or another, and asked me to come see her. Always the drama queen, that Melanie.I'll be back in two days, okay? There's food in the refrigerator for you, and plenty of towels in the linen closet. Oh, and--
Tad: Lindsay, I'll be fine! Go! Before you miss your flight.
(The two kiss again. Lindsay grabs her suitcase from the ground. She opens the door, and steps into the hall, closing the door behind her. Tad moves across the room and has a seat on the couch. He reaches for the remote, but before he can turn the TV on, his phone rings. He picks his phone up off of the end table and looks at the caller ID: "Call from: Dixie Martin"
Lindsay stands in the hallway. She opens her purse and takes out her plane ticket. It reads: DESTINATION: Pine Valley, Pennsylvania. She speaks quietly to herself.)
Lindsay: I hate lying to you, Tad. But it's time I pay an old friend a visit.
(Inside the WAVE Studios. Hayley sneaks in through a side entrance, still wearing nothing but underwear and the long silk robe - which is now tied. She creeps down the hallway and towards her dressing room. When she gets to her dressing room, she is surprised to see the door already open. She peers in and spots Brianna packing things into a large cardboard box. She enters the room.)
Hayley: What the hell are you doing?
(Brianna looks up, visibly stunned to see Hayley there.)
Brianna: Hayley...We didn't expect you to show up today. It's so late already.
Hayley: Don't deflect the subject Brianna. What the hell are you doing in my dressing room?
Brianna: I shouldn't be the one to tell you this...
(Before Brianna can finish, Hayley storms out of the room and down the hall into the large open room containing the set on which the show is filmed, as well as the camera crew, snack table and makeup touch up table. She spots Lucas on the other side of the room and marches towards him.)
Hayley: Lucas, what the hell is going on here? Why is Brianna packing things in my office?
Lucas: Hayley, I...I'm so sorry.
Hayley: Sorry for what? Lucas! What the hell are you talking about?
Lucas: You missed another day of taping, Hayley. I tried to defend you, I did. But...they've decided to let you go.
(A look of utter confusion spreads across Hayley's face for a long moment. Slowly, it morphs into realization, and then anger. Before she can continue speaking, Skye enters the room through a set of double doors across from where Hayley is standing.)
Hayley: You! You did this, didn't you?! You bitch. I asked you not to say anything.
(Skye looks genuinely sympathetic.)
Skye: I didn't do anything Hayley. This is out of my control.
Hayley: No, I don't believe you. No, you did this! You hypocritical bitch. I asked you. I begged you not to do this to me. I should have known you couldn't change.
(Before Skye can speak, Clint enters the room and begins speaking.)
Clint: Skye had nothing to do with it, Hayley. This was my decision.
(Hayley turns around slowly to face him.)
Hayley: Excuse me?
Clint: Your erratic behavior won't be tolerated anymore Hayley. It isn't benefiting the show or anyone involved, especially you. I'm very sorry, but you are being let go.
(Hayley slaps him across the face with all the force she has, leaving nail marks across his cheeks.)
Hayley: You bastard! You came to me. You came to me and told me you respected me, that you respected that this is MY show. But that was just a lie. It was nothing but a lie....You are just like the rest of them.
Clint: I know you're upset, Hayley. But this is your own doing.
(Tears well up in Hayley's eyes and cascade down her cheeks. She turns to storm out of the room but spots Erica Kane standing across the room. An evil glint fills her eyes as marches towards her. She shrieks.)
Hayley: YOU! This was your plan all along, wasn't it? Swoop in here and steal my show because you're such a complete failure yourself. I should have known better than to trust you. You truly are the shallow bitch everyone makes you out to be, Erica.
Erica: You should know I would never do that to you, Hayley.
Hayley: But you did. You did do it, Erica. You slutted your way through Pine Valley for 40 years, and once that well was dried up you decided to swoop in here and cash in on your own daughters death, at my expense.
(Tears well in Erica's eyes. Hayley opens her mouth to speak again, but Skye steps forward and in-between Erica and Hayley. She speaks.)
Skye: Don't do this, Hayley. Don't take this out on Erica, or anyone else. You've made some mistakes, but it's not to late to fix them.
(Hayley pushes Skye away from her and steps back.)
Hayley: Oh, shut UP Skye. I am so sick of your incessant preaching. You are an alcoholic, slut mob princess. And everyone in this family hates you. You may be a biological Chandler this week, but it doesn't mean anyone wants you. We have been pretending you didn't exist for decades, and you begging to be my safe place isn't going to get you back in the will, honey.
Skye: I've been where you are, Hayley. I know saying those things makes you feel better, but it isn't helping. You need to snap out of this denial --
(Hayley cuts her off.)
Hayley: Oh, honey. I'm not in denial!
(She opens her purse and pulls out a flask.)
Hayley: Ladies and gentleman, Hayley Vaughan is off the wagon! And I am loving every damn minute of it!
(She uncaps the flask and takes a swig before recapping it and putting it into her purse. She turns to walk away. She moves towards the stairs, but before she can walk down them, Skye chases after her. Skye grabs her arm.)
Hayley: Let go of me, Skye!
(Hayley jerks forward, attempting to break Skye's grasp. Skye loses her balance and stumbles forward, down the steps. After the fall, she lies unconscious at the bottom of the steps, a small pool of blood on the floor near her head. Hayley looks down at her for a moment, before beginning down the steps. She walks down the steps, her high heels clicking with each step. When she reaches the bottom, she steps directly over Skye's unconscious body and walks out the exit of the building.)
Don't forget to check back TOMORROW
For an ALL NEW episode of
So it may not be my strongest episode, but I hope this helps set up some more of the drama ahead. Apologies if the tone seems a little disjointed at this point, I'm still trying to figure out the right mix of comedy and drama here, but I think it still turned out okay.
Thanks for reading!
Everything is fast paced in LA
People are on edge
And for some it's life or...
Lauren is talking with the nurses at the front desk.
She is relieved that Michael is going easier on her.
Suddenly the next patient is rushed in.
The hospital staff gasp when they recognize him.
Drew is being rolled in.
Lauren turns, "Drew? Oh my God."
She rushes over to check him out.
The EMT's update her on Drew's status.
They rush him into a room.
Riley walks inside.
She just got home from work.
She hollers, "Drew? Drew?"
She looks around.
Riley walks into the bedroom.
She then steps into the bathroom.
Riley paces around.
She walks over and looks out the window.
Her cell phone rings.
Riley answers, "Hey Laur..."
Riley's face goes pale.
She has tears in her eyes, "Oh God... I'm on my way!"
An emotional Riley grabs her purse and runs out the door.
Jonah walks up to the courtyard.
Tricia steps outside her apartment.
Riley rushes through.
Jonah looks at her, "Riley are you okay?"
She shakes her head, "Not now Jonah."
Riley hurries past Jonah.
Tricia walks over, "What was that about?"
He shakes his head, "I'm not sure. I used to talk to Riley about everything and now she can barely even look at me. I just hope everything is okay."
Tricia nods, "You're a good ex boyfriend. Most guys would be banging on her door, swearing, and telling everyone her dirty little secrets."
Jonah shakes his head, "Riley doesn't have any. Besides, we're still friends, or at least I hope that we are. She's really caught up with her new fiance."
Tricia sighs, "Well maybe it's time you started focusing on yourself."
He nods, "I guess I've let myself go a bit lately."
He rubs his stomach.
She laughs, "Well I can help you with that."
He shakes his head, "I can't do gyms. I get nervous in front of all those big buff guys."
Tricia nods, "How about you and I go to a park tomorrow? There is a great trail on Winding Way in Santa Monica. It'd be free of charge."
He smiles, "Really?"
She nods, "Sure. You're one of the few down to Earth people here."
He grins, "I appreciate that. Thank you."
Tricia smiles, "No problem."
Tricia walks away.
Jonah has a smile on his face.
Ella returns from a business meeting.
She walks up the steps towards her office.
The second Ella gets up, she sees her office is trashed.
Ella takes off her sunglasses and walks inside.
She hollers for her assistants.
Ella looks around at the mess.
One of her male assistants walks in, "Ms. Simms?"
Ella turns, "What the hell happened in here?"
He shakes his head, "I have no idea."
She scoffs, "No idea? My office is glass and see-through. How the hell could you possibly miss someone coming in and trashing the place?"
He sighs, "I'm sorry, I was working so hard."
She stops him, "Any idea who could have done this?"
He stares, "Maybe one of the employees you let go?"
Ella shakes her head, "I didn't let them go. I fired their asses for failing to keep up on their work with their clients."
He nods, "I'll call the police if you'd like."
Ella notices that nothing is missing.
She takes a deep breath, "I'll handle this. Get back to work."
Her assistant walks out quietly.
Ella sighs, "Amanda you clever bitch."
Violet is walking to the laundry room with a basket.
Chase walks over, "Hey Red."
She smiles, "Hi. You're the actor right?"
He nods, "Indeed I am."
She grins, "That's so cool. Are you dating Ella?"
He laughs, "Uh... not quite."
She nods, "Oh sorry. Probably none of my business. And honestly you could do better, I mean look at you."
Chase laughs, "Okay."
She holds the basket close to her side.
He stares, "Doing a boyfriend's laundry?"
She sighs, "He's not my boyfriend yet."
He nods, "Yet? Sounds like a work in progress."
Violet nods, "Jonah is amazing. Any girl would be lucky to have him. But only some girls out there actually deserve him. And if you ask me, I do."
Chase grins, "You seem to have a high opinion about yourself."
She shakes her head, "I just know Jonah. I've been living with him for a while now and he just gets me. And I get him in a way that other women can't."
Chase nods, "Have you told him this?"
She shakes her head, "I'm sure he already knows."
Chase sighs, "Looks like everyone is coupling out around here."
She smiles, "Before you know it, Jonah will be slapping a ring on my finger. Bigger than Riley's."
He stares, "You don't think you're getting ahead of yourself?"
She smiles, "You'll see."
Violet heads to the laundry room.
Chase watches as his crazy neighbor walks away.
Riley is walking around the waiting room.
She can't sit down for a moment.
Lauren walks over.
Riley sees her and runs over, "Lauren. What's going on? Where is he? When can I see him?"
Lauren shushes her, "Take a deep breath Riley."
Riley shakes her head, "Just tell me he's okay."
Lauren nods, "He's stable now. Riley we knew this could happen."
She shakes her head, "I didn't."
Lauren stares, "Drew said he talked to you about this."
Riley sighs, "I thought he was preparing me for the worst. I never thought that this would happen within the next couple of days. He's seemed fine."
Lauren stares, "He's strong and good at putting up a front. But Drew is getting very weak Riley."
Lauren takes her hand, "He's sleeping, but you can come see him."
Riley and Lauren hold hands as they walk down the hall.
Lauren leads Riley to his room.
They open the door.
Riley cries as she sees Drew sleeping and hooked up to machines.
Lauren nods, "We can take everything off him tomorrow. We just want to observe him overnight and we'll let you guys know in the morning."
Riley walks over and sits next to him.
She takes his hand and kisses it.
She sighs, "I love you Drew."
Lauren looks at them and wonders how life can be like this for them.
The LA residents settle down as the night begins.
David sits in his apartment.
The door opens.
Lauren walks in, "Hey."
He looks at her, "Hi. How's Drew?"
Lauren nods, "He's okay. I finally got Riley to come home. We're going back first thing in the morning. She wanted to stay but I knew Drew would hate having her watch him all night."
David stares, "I'm glad he's going to be okay."
Lauren shakes her head, "For now. David, he's dying. I mean I don't think Riley has accepted that yet. Drew is not going to be there for her in the long run. It's going to destroy her."
Lauren has tears in her eyes.
David puts his arm around her.
She sighs, "I hate being cold. But I want to shake her and tell her that he is going to die and she needs to prepare herself. Is that heartless?"
David kisses her, "No. You're amazing Laur."
Lauren holds him close.
David looks at her, "I'm going to get out of our meeting with McKellan."
Lauren shakes her head, "No. I haven't changed my mind about that."
He sighs, "Lauren."
She nods, "We can't let him run our lives. I know we have a lot going on right now but I really need to get our life back on track. Please David?"
He nods, "Okay."
David and Lauren hold each other close.
The next morning at Melrose Place.
Violet wakes up.
She slowly gets out of bed.
She rushes over to the kitchen to make Jonah breakfast.
On her way she stops to watch him sleep.
Violet is surprised to see that Jonah is gone.
She hollers, "Jonah?"
Violet looks around and checks in the bathroom.
Violet is getting concerned.
Santa Monica Park:
Jonah and Tricia are together.
She looks at him, "Okay we're going to try and jog a mile or two to warm up."
He laughs, "Funny."
She nods, "Do I look like I'm kidding?"
He shakes his head, "Tricia... I can't even walk a mile. I get tired walking up tall flights of stairs."
She laughs, "Come on Jonah. Don't wuss out on me."
He laughs, "Ouch."
Tricia smiles, "Jonah, you are only limited as much as you limit yourself."
He stares, "That sounds like an inspirational poster."
Tricia nods, "Come on. You're smart, funny, and you're in okay shape. If you believe in yourself you can accomplish a lot more Jonah."
He nods, "Okay."
She takes off her jacket, "Let's do some stretches."
Jonah notices her fit tight body.
She nods, "Let's stretch your leg muscles. Get on the ground."
Jonah laughs, "You sure like to boss me around."
Jonah sits down.
Tricia starts showing him some good stretches to start with.
Jonah stares at her body, "You got be kidding me."
She looks at him, "What?"
He shakes his head, "Nothing."
Jonah tries to ignore her sexy body as he stretches.
He constantly tries to think of something else to calm himself down.
David stands behind the bar at Coal.
He looks at the clock.
Mr. McKellan arrives on the dot.
He walks inside and heads towards David.
He smiles, "A meeting today huh? I hope you are not about to do something stupid David. Because that would be a real shame for you and your pretty girlfriend."
David stares, "Is that so?"
McKellan nods, "I always have people tracking her David. Trust me."
Lauren walks over, "Is that so?"
McKellan stares, "What the hell is this?"
David stares, "Sorry."
Lauren nods, "I don't like to be left out of the loop. Especially when it concerns me. Do you understand?"
McKellan laughs, "You are in over your head little girl."
Lauren stares, "First off don't condescend me."
McKellan looks at him, "This is funny?"
Lauren shakes her head, "No it's not. But I'm tired of being used. You want to blackmail David? Fine. But I'm in on this too now. I'm joining your little team."
McKellan looks at both of them.
David looks at Lauren.
McKellan smiles, "You have no idea what you're getting into."
Lauren stares back at him.
Riley walks down the hall.
She heads over to Drew's room.
He is sitting up a little.
Riley smiles, "I'm so happy to see your eyes open."
He stares, "Riley I'm so sorry. I hate that I scared you like that."
Riley smiles, "Don't apologize. You're okay now and that is all I care about."
Drew nods, "You're amazing you know that?"
She sits next to him, "I missed you. I hate not having you next to me when I sleep."
He grins, "I missed you too."
Drew takes her hand and kisses it.
He sighs, "I wanted to put a diamond on your finger."
She nods, "You mean like this?"
Riley pulls out the ring that Drew was looking at the day before."
Drew stares, "Oh my God. How?"
She smiles, "I went and asked which ring you were looking at. And the owner actually gave us a great deal on it. I told him our story and he asked if you were okay."
He smiles, "I can't believe it."
She nods, "People believe in us Drew. Do you feel it?"
He grins, "I'm starting to."
Riley hands him the ring.
Drew looks at him, "I'm tired of wasting time. Riley Richmond, when I get out of this hospital, will you make me the happiest man in the world by making me your husband?"
Riley smiles, "Yes. I don't want to wait any longer to be your wife."
Drew puts the ring on Riley's finger.
The two kiss.
Ella is getting ready for work.
Chase looks at her, "Did you find out who trashed your office?"
Ella sighs, "Someone working for Amanda. Probably Tricia, or Violet, or... I don't know. At this point all I care about is getting back at Amanda. And whoever is working for her is going to pay."
Chase nods, "Just relax El. Go to work and forget about everything. Amanda is in prison and there is nothing she can do to you from in there."
Ella smiles, "You're probably right. I got to go. I'll text you later."
Ella heads out the door.
Chase is now alone in the apartment.
His phone rings.
Chase answers it, "Good timing I guess... she just left... I did what you asked okay? I trashed her office and scared the crap out of her... I hired Ciara, I did a million other things. What else do you want?... I have been working for you and doing everything you say can you please let me off the hook.... hello? Are you still there? Amanda!"
