At the college:

 

Miranda and JJ see each other in the hallway.

 

JJ yawns a tad over dramatically.

 

MIRANDA: Is that your way of saying you are tired?

JJ: I am pretty beat.

MIRANDA: I did not mean to keep you up last night. So sorry about my scream.

JJ: I thought you were under attack.

MIRANDA: I practically was by that rat!

 

JJ: Did you buy a trap yet?

MIRNADA: Haven’t gotten around to it.

JJ: You better or it might pop back out at you!

MIRANDA: Don’t say that!

At BRO:

 

Eliza is downing a cup of coffee.

 

Barbara walks up to her.

 

BARBARA: Slow down there Eliza

ELIZA: I need all the caffeine I can get.

BARBARA: You didn’t sleep good last night?

ELIZA: Last night? Grandma, I haven’t slept well since I started this job.

BARBARA: Honey, you cannot let this place stress you out.

 

ELIZA: Not just this place. My dad is a big part of it.

BARBARA: Paul is stressed out himself. We all are.

ELIZA: I just feel like I am always doing a jumbled bad job as my father’s secretary.

BARBARA: It will probably just take time to get the hang of it.

ELIZA: I just need a good pep talk.

BARBARA: I’m not the best coach, but get to those phones and kick some a**!

 

Eliza laughs

Brittany is with Marcino eating breakfast.

 

BRITTANY: You barely touched your food.

MARCINO: I know

BRITTANY: Are you not hungry? It is going to get cold.

MARCINO: I am just not in the mood for breakfast.

BRITTANY: You love breakfast, son.

MARCINO: I know. Just not today.

 

BRITTANY: Something must be wrong.

MARCINO: No. I’m fine.

BRITTANY: But are you sure?

MARCINO: Yes, I am fine!

BRITTANY: Sorry, but I don’t believe you. Something is obviously bothering you.

 

Marcino huffs and puffs

Steve is pleased when Terrance meets with him.

 

STEVE: I didn’t think you would actually meet me.

TERRANCE: Of course. We are partners.

STEVE: Well not anymore since I quit the ISA.

TERRANCE: Yeah, but we have come too far to stop working together now.

STEVE: That’s a true bud right there.

 

They shake hands.

 

TERRANCE: I plan on seeing this case through.

STEVE: So do I dude.

TERRANCE: What is the next step?

 

There is a knock at the door.

 

STEVE: That is the next step right there.

 

Steve opens the door and it is Hope

 

HOPE: Hello

STEVE: Come on in. We need your help.

 

Hope enters.

 

 

 

AT BRO:

 

Barbara is still talking with her granddaughter.

 

ELIZA: I’m not improving though.

BARBARA: You are totally new to the job.

ELIZA: Totally new to working in general.

BARBARA: Give it time, Eliza! You’ll get the hang of it.

ELIZA: I’m losing hope.

 

Barbara’s office phone rings.

 

ELIZA: I bet that’s my dad.

 

Barbara answers it.

 

BARBARA: Hello. Yes…okay.

 

She hangs up.

 

BARBARA: That was Paul. He wants you at your desk ready to work.

ELIZA: Yay (rolls eyes)

BARBARA: good luck.

ELIZA: We need to have these talks more often.

BARBARA: Whenever, hon.

 

As Eliza exits Barbara’s office, Henry enters it.

 

BARBARA: Henry! Didn’t you get enough of me last night?

HENRY: I never get enough of you pudding pop.

 

Henry kisses her.

At the college:

 

JJ: So…Miranda…I have a question for you..

MIRANDA: What is it?

JJ: It is a little personal…

MIRANDA: Okaaay…

JJ: So I saw you and that guy that works at the coffee shop looking real chummy.

MIRANDA: Hunter?

 

JJ: Yeah, him.

MIRANDA: What about him?

JJ: You two dating or something?

MIRANDA: Um, No. We’re just friends getting to know each other.

JJ: Oh…

MIRANDA: Why do you ask?

JJ: Oh because he…just seems like a really good guy and all.

MIRANDA: Yeah he seems to be. So…you saw us? You were watching us?

 

--

 

BRITTANY: Please Marcino, open up to me son…

MARCINO: I wish you would take my word for it that I am fine.

BRITTANY: But you are obviously not.

 

Marcino takes a big bite of his breakfast.

 

MARCINO: There. See. I am fine.

BRITTANY: No need to be a smarta**

MARCINO: I just don’t want to talk about it and if you keep nagging me you will be bothering me.

 

Brittany is becoming frustrated.

 

BRITTANY: Is this all because School is about to begin?

MARCINO: Sure mom.

 

--

 

HOPE: What is it that you need me to do, Steve?

STEVE: We are going to trap Stefano.

TERRANCE: We are?

STEVE: Yes.

HOPE: How are we going to go about that?

 

STEVE: First, you must contact Greta. She is this key to this.

HOPE: Okay I will then.

TERRANCE: She is the one that may be Stefanos daughter? Will she help?

HOPE: She has no love loss with Stefano.

TERRANCE: They could be close now.

STEVE: I don’t think so. At least I hope not. Her help will be huge in trapping him.

At the college:

 

MIRANDA: I find it weird if you were watching me and Hunter.

JJ: Watching is not the right word. It is not like I was staring, I just happened to see you both having fun and thought..those are two good people…having fun…how cute.

MIRADA: Alrighty.

JJ: Sorry if it was a weird personal question.

MIRANDA: It is okay. I should get to class.

JJ: Okay. Good luck.

MIRANDA: I am starting to think all of our encounters are always going to be awkward..

 

She walks off.

 

JJ sighs.

Steve gets home and Kayla is there.

 

KAYLA: Any luck?

STEVE: I hope I am doing the right thing not using the ISAs help.

KAYLA: You will do the right thing.

STEVE: I hope this is not all for nothing. I hope Bo is really still alive and out there somewhere.

KAYLA: We all are hanging on to that.

STEVE: I feel like time is running out either way.

 

KAYLA: I believe my brother is still alive. Hope does too. You are not doing this for nothing.

STEVE: We’re about the take the next step. It will involve Stefano if all goes right.

KAYLA: You better be careful.

STEVE: You know I will, sweetness.

 

The two kiss and embrace.

 

--

 

Hope meanwhile makes a phone call.

 

HOPE: Let this go right.

 

HOPE: Hello…Greta

 

--

 

At BRO:

 

Eliza is at her desk hanging up a phone.

 

ELIZA: That one didn’t go so bad. Maybe Grandmas talk helped.

 

The phone rings again.

 

ELIZA: Please god, not another busy day.

 

She answers.

 

ELIZA: Hello this is the office of Paul Ryan.

 

The person on the other line has a deep voice.

 

“I need to set up a meeting with Paul Ryan.”

 

ELIZA: His schedule tomorrow is almost wide open. What time can you meet him?

 

“Perfect. The meeting is not for me. It is a meeting for him to meet with a Todd Manning.”

 

Eliza writes down Todd Manning onto her note pad.

 

FADE TO BLACK

Very light drama in this episode. Can we pump it up?

Eliza is making something out of nothing. BItch answer the phone say hello and be done with that.

I wonder what Hope's plan are regarding Greta. I can't stand Greta.

 

I thought the scene with JJ and Miranda was odd. I didnt get the point of it. It seems now JJ is interested in her but I thought he had eyes for another chic.

Brittany is a bit pushy.

On to the next one...
