    (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.....

  2. Genoa City Memorial Hospital.big_hospital_pic.jpg



    the-young-and-the-restless_zpsokqrqjk9.jHillary walks into Nate’s room and sees Olivia with her head laying upon Nate’s chest. It’s hard to take in the sight of Nate hemmed up in a body cast knowing she played a significant role in making that happen. The guilt is so much a tear forms in her eye.



    th%201_zpsj6pklgh9.jpegOlivia: Nathan, I need you to wake up from this coma. Son please I love you. I can’t lose you like this.



    Olivia sits up and wipes the tears coming from her eyes and also she takes a tissue to wipe her nose since every time she wells up her nose begins to run. She sees Hillary. She stands up.



    Olivia: Hillary right?



    Hillary gives a faint smile.



    Hillary: Yes Mrs. Hastings.



    Hillary extends her hand out to shake with Olivia’s.



    Olivia: I didn’t hear you come in. I’m sorry you have to see me like this.



    Hillary: No your fine. I came to check up on Nathan. What are the doctors saying?



    Olivia: Dr. Whitfield says the swelling in Nate’s brain has subsided. He’s been easing Nate  out of the  coma induced by medication.



    Hillary: That’s so great. So that means he could be waking up soon?



    Olivia: That is the prognosis. Then there is what’s underneath the cast. He has broken arms, legs and possible spinal injury. It’s too soon to tell.



    Hillary: One step at a time… I came here to give Nate some hope.



    Olivia: Oh…?



    Hillary rubs her stomach.



    Hillary: Nathan and I are having a baby.



    Olivia looks in shock.



    Olivia: A child? You and Nathan?



    Hillary: That’s right. I came to tell Nathan, maybe if he heard the news it would give him the will to wake up.



    Olivia: I just had no idea that my son was dating any one.



    Hillary: Well I’ve only been in town a few months. Nate and I were together in college but I had to leave to care for my dying mother.



    Olivia: I’m sorry to hear that. I must say I’m sorry because Nate never mentioned a Hillary. The only woman I know about being in his life is Roxanne. And I only found that out at Lily’s homecoming party. When my son admitted to having feelings for Roxanne. I had no idea this was all going on.



    Hillary: It’s a complicated situation.



    She says as she has a flashback of hiding in Roxanne’s apartment and then recording the conversation she overheard with Nate and Roxanne where they confess their feelings for one another.



    Olivia: I take it there is no love lost between you and Roxanne. I saw the altercation you had with her in the emergency room.



    Hillary: My half-sister is a waste of air that other people could be using to do good things with.



    Olivia: Oh wow. This is complicated.  A pair of sisters fighting over my son.



    Hillary: There is no fight Mrs. Hastings…Complicated, yes I can give you that but a fight, well If you want to call it that, let’s say I won, I am having your grandchild. A baby trumps everything else.



    Hillary says with a smile rubbing her stomach.

    Episode 184: Keemo helps Victor fight Jack!

    Spencer waits in a room that Roxanne walks into.



    thCANS4T73.jpgSpencer: Finally. I’ve waited 30 minutes here in this holding room to see you.



    thumbnailCAERFBK3-1.jpgRoxanne: You are here to bail me out?



    Spencer: Well you know I’ve fallen on hard times. I work as a cook at Gina’s and I don’t have that kind of money. They took my car and house so I now take the bus and rent.



    Roxanne: Some father I have. Went from a pimp to being a district attorney and now to being a broke bum.



    Spencer: Really?



    Roxanne: I need help and my father is unable to be here for me. I bet you would help that tramp Hillary.



    Spencer: I am doing the best I can. No one asked you to attack your half-sister and over what? A man? Nate? I told you two before, you know when you two lionesses had your first encounter at my damn apartment breaking down my door that no man is worth fighting over. My landlord was not happy with having to replace the door. I don’t have the money to keep replacing doors or paying bails. I also got quite a few noise complaints behind all that.



    Roxanne: If you are not here to bail me out then why are you here?



    Spencer: Now see I had some good news for you. Leslie was right, that mouth of yours’s is out of control.



    Roxanne: It’s not my mouth. I just have zero respect for you or Leslie. You’re a pimp and she was your hoe. How can I respect people like that? And to think you’re my long lost parents. Usually when a family is reunited they are happy. Not this time. I was disappointed and embarrassed.



    Spencer: You really are your own worst enemy.



    Roxanne: No, that slut daughter of yours is the enemy.



    Spencer can only just shake his head back and forth and wonder why his daughter has so much venom in her veins.



    Spencer: Where does it come from?












    Brown Stone Apartments. Lauren’s Place.  IMG_5059.jpg



    Gloria looks at Lauren with big eyes.



    thumbnail-1.jpgGloria: I loved John Abbott very much Lauren! I had no idea Keemo was his grandson!



    Lauren2_zpsf1ca8d60.jpgLauren: What kind of love allows you to date your deceased’s husband grandson Gloria? And you want to stand here and tell me about my relationship with your son?



    Gloria: Of course. Michael is my son and I’m very worried about him. I’ve never seen him so low.



    Lauren: Michael should have thought of all of that before he became a bitch boy for Victor Newman.



    Gloria: Stop calling him that! Michael is a good man who takes care of his family. You can’t say that about a lot of men these days.



    Lauren: A lot of men don’t become bitch boys either do they Gloria? Look I really think its best you leave. I am divorcing Michael Baldwin and suing for custody, sole custody of Fenmore. No one will change my mind.



    Gloria: So you’re going to throw everything you and Michael built up all these years away?



    Lauren: I didn’t do that Michael did when he put Victor first!



    Gloria: You have really changed Lauren.



    Lauren: Have a good day Gloria. You have your own issues you need to deal with.



    Lauren opens the door and motions Gloria to leave.



    Gloria shakes her head at Lauren and leaves her apt. Lauren closes the door.



    Gloria: Oh Michael I tried. I really did. Lauren is really going to go ahead with this divorce and custody battle. I won’t give up though. I will find a way to save your family.



    She pulls out her cell phone and notices 4 missed calls from Keemo. She thinks of him and then of what Lauren said to her: She’s in love with her deceased husband’s grandson.



    Gloria takes a deep breath and then leaves Brownstone Apartments.












    No Name Tower, 24 floor, House of KemApr18_0003.jpg



    Victor is smiling from ear to ear as he basks in the recruitment of Jack’s son Keemo to his side in the war against Jack.



    Victor_Newman-1.jpgVictor: You made the right decision my boy.



    thumbnail2.jpgKeemo: I usually try to make them all the time. So tell me Mr. Newman, what do we need to do? Do we have a plan to take out  Jack?



    Victor: I do my boy. I am going to hit Jack from all angles. But there is one problem.



    Keemo: Problems is a word not in my vocabulary.



    Victor: I like that.  Let’s say… a minor detail then?



    Keemo: Which is?



    Victor: Your father has all my assets. I have no money, not even a place to lay my head. I have nothing Keemo. I need money to get on my feet and get Jack back. I can’t get my revenge without any money. Your jack ass father has it all.



    Keemo leans back in his chair and takes a deep breath.



    Keemo: Money.



    Victor: A lot of it my boy.



    Keemo: Mr. Newman as you know I am just starting up my fashion house. It’s designed to put a dent into Jabot. I have loans out for this new business venture. I really don’t feel entirely too comfortable loaning any money out right now.



    Victor: I am Victor Newman.



    Keemo: I don’t have money like that.



    Victor: Do you know how any of this makes me feel? Me, Victor Newman begging for a loan. This is what your jack ass father did to me. With or without you Keemo, I will get back my power, my respect, my family and my empire back. I just need a helping hand right now. I have nothing.



    Keemo: I understand Mr. Newman.



    Keemo spins around in his chair and looks out the ground to ceiling window that overlooks Genoa City.



    Keemo: Mr. Newman no cost is too high to take out my father Jack. Jack is an ass and he’s in the way of my happiness with Gloria and he has no respect for me.



    He spins back around in his executive chair to face Victor.



    Victor smiles.



    Victor: You won’t regret this and this fashion house will be a major success,… we will see to that once we get Jack out of the way.



    Keemo: I can wire or write a check for a million. To help you find a place and get back on your feet.



    Victor: Cash please my boy. I don’t have any means to cash a check these days. Jack has really did a number on me.



    Keemo: Wow… Cash it is my friend. I’ll work on it and then give you a call to let you know when and where you can pick it up.



    Victor: I really appreciate that my boy. Our characters are already winning against Jack. Jack’s son is going to give me a startup loan to take out his own father who is the enemy at this point in my story. Check mate Jack Ass Abbott. I am going to crush his character!



    Victor stands up with a broad smile as Keemo frowns up wondering why Victor is sounding so weird.



    Victor: Will it be today? My character is tired and a little hungry.



    Keemo pulls out 60 bucks from his wallet and slides it across his desk.



    Keemo: Go get something nice to eat.



    Victor looks down at the money, shocked that he has been reduced to charity.



    Victor:  Thank you Keemo. Tell no other characters in Genoa City of this charity. It would make my character look so bad.



    Keemo: I’ll be in touch Mr. Newman.



    Victor: Good day.



    Victor grabs the money and leaves HOK and therefore No Name Tower.



    Keemo spins around in his chair to take in his view of the city and ponder a few thoughts.



    Why does Victor get weird in his speech and the fact that he is helping Victor take out his own dad. Keemo thinks of the loyalty he should have to Jack since Jack is his father. But Keemo doesn’t feel loyalty from Jack’s end.  Keemo then wonders what his mother Luan would think of the situation that is developing. Father vs. Son costarring Victor Newman.












    City Jail



    Roxanne: I don’t have venom in me. I just don’t like that slutty daughter of yours.



    Spencer: I wish you wouldn’t address her like that. She is your half-sister and we are a family and we need to make this work.



    Roxanne: I don’t need anything like that. I just need my Nate. But Hillary slept with him as soon as she hit town. That’s a hoe to me.



    Spencer: They were together in college. They picked up right where they left off. How is that being a hoe?



    Roxanne: I really like how you just keep defending her? What about me? I was going to have a singing career until you the pimp and my mother the college slut were exposed as my parents. Now that is ruined. My future is ruined thanks to my new found parents and yet you keep defending tramp ass Hillary. You seem to know a lot about hoes considering my mother was one of your hoes back in the day.



    Spencer: That’s the part I don’t get, if you want or wanted Nate so much then why were you with Devon?



    Roxanne: I love Devon. He’s special, kind and handsome. He’s… just… I don’t know, Nate just lights my fire. He turns me on. I was a little bored with Devon I guess. He didn’t deserve what I did to him but I never slept with Nate. I never betrayed Devon in that way. Nate and I held restraint yet when that tramp stamp Hillary hits town on the first night she had sex with him… It hurts.



    Spencer: Roxanne this thing with Nate… your going have to let it go.



    Roxanne: And let Hillary win? No! Nate and I have something real. We share so much. He was there for me and I was there for him.



    Spencer: Hillary did win. She’s having Nate’s baby. She’s pregnant Roxanne!



    Roxanne: No!



    Roxanne feels sharp pains in her gut and heart.



    Roxanne: No.



    She says softly as she turns away from her father.



    Roxanne: No…



    Only this time with tears forming in her eyes

    Michael:  He’s got a large family behind him.
    Donna:  Where’s everyone else?  Where are the twins?  Where’s  Kirkland and Victoria?  I’m gonna go see where they are.
    Bridget and Michele are in the waiting area...quiet.  Each girl has her arms folded.  Bridget is sitting in a chair while Michele is sitting on the right arm of the couch closest to the glass door.  Michele looks at Bridget, rolls her eyes and gets up.
    Michele:  I’m gonna go see how Aunt Marley’s doing.
    Bridget:  No you’re not.  You’re gonna look for something to cut yourself with and blame it on me.
    Michele:  You can’t stop being a bitch for two seconds can you?
    Bridget:  Maybe after what you did tonight everyone will see that I was right about you.  You need help.
    Michele turns around and walks slowly toward Bridget.  Bridget gets up as if to prepare for another fight.
    Michele:  If you want a replay of what happened at the Corys I’m game, because I should have done it a long time ago.  I’ll be more than happy to beat the bitchiness out of you.
    Bridget:  You think some fisticuffs is gonna change anything?  I still have Cory, and dad and grandpa think you’re crazy, too.
    Michele:  Really?  After everything you’ve done, mom still supports me.  I’ve always been mom’s favorite daughter.  You’ve always been the black sheep; the outsider; the screw-up.
    Bridget:  Shut your mouth!
    Michele:  Deep down, dad knows it, too.  Mom knows what you’ve done, and sees you for the conniving little skank that you are, and that you’ll always be.
    Bridget:  You crazy bitch!
    Before they can start another physical fight, Kirkland races in and manages to get between them.
    Kirkland:  No!  Not here!  You two can’t stay in a room alone without wanting to kill each other?
    Michele:  Your bitch sister provoked me again!
    Kirkland:  Bridget why don’t you go the nursery and see our little cousin.
    Bridget:  But…
    Kirkland:  Go!
    Bridget looks at the both of them and walks out in disgust.
    Kirkland:  When are you two gonna stop?
    Michele:  It’s all her fault!  Wait til mom hears about what Bridget said.
    Kirkland:  You’re not gonna tell mom anything about this.
    Michele:  What do you mean?
    Kirkland:  Both of you need counseling.  You gotta let this go.
    You gotta stop being so angry.
    Vicky walks up to Steven.
    Vicky:  How’s Rachel?
    Steven:  I left a message on her voicemail.
    Vicky:  I know the rest of her family’s there.  Did you call your dad?
    Steven:  Not yet.  It’s still pretty late there.
    Vicky:  Listen I’m...I’m sorry about the way I’ve behaved…
    Steven:  But?
    Vicky:  But what?
    Steven:  You still don’t approve of Joy being in my life.
    Vicky:  No I can’t.
    Steven:  That’s too bad isn’t it?
    Vicky:  That girl is a homewrecker!  I cannot just sit here and watch this happen.  She is going to destroy you.
    Steven:  She was only eighteen years old when she had the affair with Tyrone.  You are still holding her past against her.  What if somebody held your past against you?  What she did before doesn’t stop me from…
    Steven stops as he, and Vicky, realize something.
    Vicky:  Oh my God.  You’ve fallen for her haven’t you?  You’re in love with her.
    Steven gets a text.  He looks on his phone.  The text is from Joy.
    Joy(text):  I’m home.  
    Steven (return text):  Good.  Thank you for being with me tonight.  I love you.
    MEANWHILE, Joy walks around the corner on the same floor.  She looks around to see if anyone sees her, and slips into a room.  She then gets a text from Steven.  She looks at her phone a bit jolted.  Steven’s declaration has taken her aback.  She takes a deep breath and texts back.
    Joy:  I love you, too.
    Joy looks around and sees scrubs.  Joy is not home.  She is in a hospital supply closet as she has a flashback:
    (EPISODE 174)
    Reginald:  Joy Joy Joy.
    Joy:  Did you do it?
    Reginald:  The antidote?   
    Joy:  Thomasina said she’s feeling better.
    Reginald:  Yes I called and they gave her the antidote.
    Joy:  Then we’re even.
    Reginald:  No we’re not.  I can get to her whenever I want.
    Joy:  So what does that mean?  What else do you want me to do?
    Reginald:  I don’t have to tell you.  I want to raise the next patriarch of my family, and you’re going to get him.
    Joy:  Where the hell am I supposed to get...no.  You can’t make me do that.
    Reginald:  You don’t want Thomasina to get sick again do you?  Get me my great grandson.
    Joy flashes back to the present and she notices Brianna’s hospital badge on the floor, and she picks it up.
    Joy:  I’m so sorry Steven but I have to do this.
    PART 2
    Marley lies in the bed.  Michael is sitting at her bedside.
    Marley:  I don’t think I can get any happier than I am now.
    Michael:  You’re very lucky.
    Marley:  I am...very lucky.  Lucky to have a husband who loves me; lucky to still have my parents; Vicky, Allen, all of you.
    Michael:  Your grandfather didn’t allow us to have this type of moment when you and Victoria were born.
    Marley:  Don’t bring him up.  Happy thoughts.  Happy memories.
    Michael:  Of course.  The birth of your child is something you’re always gonna remember.
    Marley:  And that you came back.  We all thought you were dead, but you fought your way back to us.  I’m so glad you’re here dad.
    Michael clenches Marley’s right hand.
    Michael:  There’s nowhere else I’d rather be.
    Allen is talking to Tyrone.
    Allen:  Look at you man.
    Tyrone:  Yeah.  I got a son.  My boy Roman.  I mean this is just the icing on the cake.  All this time we thought Marley couldn’t get pregnant.  Just miraculous.
    Allen:  I know.  I’m just...glad I can be here to share this with you bro.
    Tyrone:  Thank you.  
    Allen:  For what?
    Tyrone:  You helped me to realize that my anger was misplaced.  Our father is the one I was really mad at.  
    Allen:  You can’t be too mad.  He raised you.  What was he like?
    Tyrone:  Typical dad I guess.  Be a man.  Don’t show any emotions.  
    Allen:  I didn’t get to spend hardly any time with him.  You did.  That’s why I’m so insistent on being in KC’s life.  Our dad wasn’t there for me.
    Tyrone:  I ain’t sending my boy off to no boarding school.  I’m gonna be there for him.  I’m taking him to all his games; to all his practices.  Whatever he wants to do.  I’m gonna support him.  I will never give up on my son.
    Allen:  I know, cuz I ain’t gonna let you.  He’s my nephew you know?
    Tyrone:  You know what’s so great about this, too?
    Allen:  What’s that?
    Tyrone:  I got my brother with me.
    Allen:  I got you.
    They hug and Donna and KC walk up to them.
    KC:  Look at this.  My dad and my uncle Tyrone….bonding.
    Donna:  I called my sister.  She told me the good news.
    Allen:  I’ve had a good night.
    Donna:  I can’t find Victoria or the girls.  Have you seen them?
    Tyrone:  No.  I heard about what happened between Michele and Bridget.  
    Donna:  Let’s hope that doesn’t happen again.
    Michele:  So what’s the matter?  You think I’m crazy, too?
    Kirkland:  Getting help doesn’t mean you’re ill.  It means you need to get rid of this anger you’ve got.
    Michele:  I’m sure you’ve heard what she did.
    Kirkland:  I know what happened.  She was devastated, hurt, and could hardly forgive herself when we thought you were dead.  She felt really down about losing you.
    Michele:  She’s got me, and the only she can act toward me is bitchy.
    Kirkland:  You both are doing it to each other.  Serve and volley.  
    Michele:  You’re comparing us to tennis.
    Kirkland:  Come on.  I can’t stand to see my little sisters fighting all the time.  Can you at least consider it?
    Michele:  Getting help?  I don’t need any help.  She’s the one who needs it.  Mom’s on my side.
    Vicky:  Who was that?  Joy?
    Steven:  I told her to text me when she got home.
    Vicky:  I’m gonna see about Marley.
    Steven:  Mom.  
    Vicky:  What is it?
    Steven:  I love you.
    Vicky smiles as her eyes well up.
    Vicky:  I love you, too my firstborn child.  
    Steven:  Let’s go see about Aunt Marley.
    Vicky:  Good idea.
    The Love/Hudsons surround Marley who is lying in her bed.
    Marley:  Would you look at this?  It means so much to have all of you here.
    Vicky:  We got a little one to look after now.
    Donna:  He’s gonna have a hell of a time being a part of this family.
    MEANWHILE, Bridget stands at the glass of the nursery, and watches her cousin Roman in his bassinet.  
    Bridget:  Are you sure you wanna be part of this family Roman?  Your cousin Michele is crazy.
    As Bridget walks away, Joy, dressed in blue hospital scrubs, with a mask over her nose and mouth, scans Brianna’s stolen badge into the nursery, walks over to and stands over Roman Montgomery’s bassinet.
    Marley (V.O.):  Roman’s gonna love all of you.  Let’s go see him.

  5. vorjns.jpg

    As the sun has set, a mournful nation is in shock and heartbroken over the assassination of their president. Lawrence’s body has been flown back to Washington D.C., and as the plane lands at the airport.......a distraught Forrest walks over to the staircase as Jennifer is being helped down. Their eyes lock.........and, once at the bottom of the staircase, she falls into Forrest’s arms and sobs deeply, only mustering the strength to say......

    Jennifer: I’m so sorry.

    Forrest holds on to her, and Jack comes up and takes her from Forrest.........as he sees his brother’s body being brought off of the plane. The nation, and especially the citizens of Salem, watch is disbelief as the casket carrying the president is loaded into a hearse to be taken to the morgue.

    Jack, having placed Jennifer in her limousine, walks over to Forrest and tells him.........

    Jack: Sir, I have that file you requested.

    Forrest: Good. Get it to the F.B.I., the I.S.A. and Interpol. I know who killed my brother.......I just want the proof, so, when he is captured.......the charges will stick. But.......

    Jack: Yes?

    Forrest: Keep the identity of the person who ordered his assassination out of the media. They will only get in the way. Also.......contact Stefano DiMera and Shane Donovan. Tell them I’m signing off on their plan.

    Jack: Yes, sir.

    Forrest: And have Bo Kiriakis brought to Washington tomorrow. I’m going to offer him a job. I just hope he takes it.

    Jack: Yes.........Mr. President.

    As Jack walks off, Forrest asks him a question.......

    Forrest: Jack.........I need a man I can trust as my Vice President. Interested?

    Jack: {After a brief pause} With pleasure, sir.

    Forrest: Good.

    Both men walk to their cars. Forrest gets in his own limousine, and Jack sits in Jennifer’s limousine. As all the cars drive away from the runway and leave the airport, Jack places his hand on Jennifer’s hand........and it makes her break down once again. Jack puts his arm around her, and comforts her as she cries in his arms, as the motorcade drives off into the beautiful starlit night.

    In Salem, the Hortons sit in the family living room and cry at what they have witnessed on the television. Maggie remarks that she didn’t think someone would a man as honorable as Lawrence. Hope doesn’t know why she would think that. People die every day........why should his death be any more important? Maggie is shocked by Hope’s attitude, and Hope doesn’t care. All she wants is Bo. And she will have him........

    Hope: Even if I have to get rid of that whore he’s married to.

    Maggie stands and looks at Hope, as the scene fades into.......

    The DiMera household, where Orpheus comes downstairs for dinner. He rolls up his sleeves and sits down to eat, and Eric and Lucas walk through the door. Marlena comes out of the kitchen with Carrie and everyone sits down to silently eat. Everyone keeps looking at Orpheus, and after minutes of this tension, he puts his fork down and says......

    Orpheus: Ok. Your grandfather and I have a plan in place. I can’t tell you what it is.

    Lucas and Eric look at each other, with Lucas saying........

    Lucas: I want in.

    Eric: So do I.

    Marlena: {Standing up} No. None of my children are getting involved. The country is in mourning. And you father and grandfather have enough on their plate without you two getting involved. Besides Lucas, you left home because of the violence.

    Carrie: And now you want to in. You too, Eric. Interesting.

    Lucas: I know all of that........I’m just sick of those damn Bradys running all over everything and everyone. Dad......you can see that, can’t you?

    Orpheus: Of course, son. But there are reason why none of you can have any part in this. (Turning to Marlena) Great food as always, my dear. You are truly a great cook.

    Marlena: Thank you, dear.

    Orpheus: And now.......I’m going to meet with some people. I’ll see you all tomorrow morning. Good evening.

    Orpheus heads out to meet with Stefano at the station, while Eric and Lucas decide to follow him. Marlena stays with Carrie, and as the men leave out...........

    Steve and the new president sit in the Oval Office, going over then plans to attack the Brady Mansion and bring Roman and Shawn Brady to justice.........as, 90 minutes later, Lucas and Eric sit in Lucas’s car and listen in on Orpheus’s meeting with his father.........

    Lucas: They need to get to the damn pont. I’m sick of sitting in this car. BTW.........how did you get that microphone into Stefano’s office?

    Eric: I’m a DiMera, as are you. You know we have our ways.

    Lucas: True. Wait a minute.........what did Dad just say?

    Both men listen intently and both of them hear the plan to attack the Brady compound. They look at each other as Eric tells Lucas to hit the peddle........

    Eric: I have to get to the house and warn Sami.

    Lucas: What about the rest of the Bradys?

    Eric: To hell with the rest of them! She’s the only one a I care about. If anything happened to her.......

    Lucas: Calm down, little brother. We’re on our way.

    Lucas starts his car and guns it towards the Brady Mansion...........

    While Steve and Forrest converse with Shane on a conference call about when they strike. Forrest agrees that tomorrow is as good a time as any. He tells the men that he intends for Steve’s brother Bo to go along with them. Steve and Shane both ask why.........and Forrest tells him that the U.S. Attorney General is the highest ranking law enforcement officer in the country.......and that is what he intends to make Bo, if he excepts the position.

    Back in Salem, Lucas and Eric pull up down the street from the mansion. They look at each, shake hands, and Eric jumps out of the car, racing towards the compound. He tries to stay out of sight as Lucas starts his car and drives off. He then picks up his phone and calls Sami’s private phone. When she answers, Lucas tells her Eric is on the grounds, and needs to talk to her. She thanks Lucas for the phone call, and he says........

    Lucas: It’s the least I could for my brother. Take care.

    As they both hang up........Bo’s private jet lands in Washington, D.C. He looks at the television as the nation mourns Lawrence’s death, and disembarks off the plane. He is met by F.B.I. agents and Secret Service agents, sent there by Forrest for his safety. He gets into a waiting limousine, the destination......

    The White House.

    At the Horton home, Hope goes upstairs to see her sister, Kimberly. She sees her laying in her bed, sleeping. Hope walks in and silently sits next to her. She takes her hand and holds it, while also wiping tears from her eyes. She then leans forward and quietly starts talking to Kimberly, telling her........

    Hope: I tried calling Bo, but he had left town. I can’t believe the president is dead. What are we going to do? I hope Bo can protect us. I just don’t know, Sis.......

    I just don’t know.

    In his limousine driving through Washington, Bo calls Megan, asking how she’s doing. She says his parents are doing a fine job taking care of her. He tells her not to overdo it, and she smiles, saying he needs to stop worrying. He should have his mind on more important things, and he tells her.....

    Bo: Nothing, and no one.......is more important than you.

    Megan: My dad will be happy to hear that. Thank you, Bo.

    Bo: For what?

    Megan: Being by my side.

    Bo then looks out the window, and tells Megan he has to go. They say their good-byes, and after they hang up, Bo’s car stops. Someone comes and opens the door, and as he gets out, he looks up at the beautiful White House Mansion........and slowly walks in.

    In Salem, Roman comes downstairs and sees Sami putting her jacket on. He ask where she’s going, and she says out. He demands to know why she is running around after what happened in Dallas today, to which Sami replies..........

    Sami: I think you know EXACTLY what happened in Dallas today.

    Roman: What are you saying?

    Sami: {After a pause} Did you? Did you have the president killed?

    Roman: How dare you ask me something like that. What kind of damn monster do you take me for?!

    Sami: The same monster who has been trying to have Orpheus locked away for years. The same monster who held him from his family, the same monster who.........

    Roman: What?! Say it!

    At that moment the door opens, and a man walks in. He says to Roman and Sami........

    Maxwell Brady: She won’t say it, Dad. She doesn’t have the guts.

    Roman and Sami just look at each other, and Sami then turns around. She smiles at her brother.........right before slapping him hard across his face. She storms out as he holds his chin, saying to Roman......

    Maxwell: She still has that temper.

    Roman sighs deeply and welcomes his son home, and as they both walk into the main living room.......

    Sami runs out to her car. She gets in and starts it up.........as Eric sits up in the backseat. He startles her, and she reaches back and starts slapping him, telling him about scaring her. He says he’s sorry, and sits up all he way, telling her to drive. She looks at him with fear, and he tells her........

    Eric: Yeah, it’s huge..........now get out of here.

    She puts her car in reverse, backs down the long driveway, puts her car in drive, and floors it towards her Aunt Kate’s home. As the two lovers drive through the night.......

    Bo sits down in Forrest’s Oval Office, as Jack walks in as well. As they sit, Bo offers his condolences for Lawrence’s death. Forrest thanks him, and says that’s one of the reason why he’s there. Bo doesn’t quite understand, and Forrest tells him that a plan has been put in place to take out the person responsible for his brother’s death. Bo looks at Jack, who shakes his head in agreement. Bo wonders what he has to do with it, and that is when a man, the Director of the C.I.A. walks in and tells him........

    C.I.A. Director Ernesto Toscano: Everything, son. Let us know right now. Are you with us.........

    Or against us?

    Bo looks around the room and looks back at this man, as the scene freeze frames........

    And slowly fades to black.

  6. Words from new Show runner ML Cooks


    I usually don't do these kind of things and rarely give previews. I try to remain "press free" and "interview free"

    There has been a lot of chaos and confusion behind the scenes lately on LIS. First it was announced that LIS was back with new episodes after being on a yearlong hiatus. After episode began to air, the show fell into another unexpected hiatus. During that time, show creator Tara Smith was unable to contribute creatively to the show she created. ML Cooks, having already been co head writer for a few years, has laid out a very detailed and dramatic long-term story projection for LIS and the show must go on and it will. Through ML Cooks.

    Now with that being said. The episodes that are currently airing right now were written and produced in February of this year. They were supposed to air in March.

    Having said that, you may notice some things about to happen that may seem a bit similar to the real “Days of our Lives” and the “Young and the Restless”. What do I mean?

    LIS itself has been in the midst of it’s own reboot even before the yearlong hiatus. The reboot never made it to air. In that reboot, I have written in a whodunit. I again want to stress that this was created about a year ago, that I wanted to kill a certain some one off in a whodunit.

    So there you have it. LIS will be telling it’s own whodunit. I will not reveal just whom it is here in this press release, you’ll have to read the series to see who it is. The whodunit will serve as a reboot as new storylines begin. LIS will not be dominated with the murder mystery as in Y&R. I am rotating other stories in and out of it.

    To get the big storyline started, I am airing a series of three episodes to set up the whodunit starting with episode 460. It will be told in three different parts and will involve legacy characters such as Bill Horton and Julie Williams. Bill Horton is being played by Jerry vor Dornclint_buchanan.jpgJulie.jpg

    Big changes are coming for LIS with a big murder mystery to kick things off.

    Stay tuned for some status updates in the casting department.

    Drama lives here.

    Thursday, June 26, 2008

    Written by: Tishy Smith and Ryan Chandler

    Cassandra woke up and looked around the unfamiliar room. She sighed as she got out of bed. She pulled on some shorts and a tee shirt and pulled her hair back into a ponytail. Not hearing any noise, she walked towards the kitchen and saw the cook. “Where is everyone?”

    “Alexander left early this morning. He said he will be back soon. Would you like some breakfast?” The cook asked.

    Cassandra nodded politely. “Yes please.”

    The cook served Cassandra some toast, fruit and a glass of orange juice. “Alexander said you are not to leave the premises. He wants to talk to you when he gets back.”

    Cassandra looked out the window. “Yes ma’am. I will not leave.”
    The doors to the 5th Floor Nurses’ station open up, showing Michael Corinthos III stepping off the elevator. He slings his backpack over his shoulder and makes his way to the desk.

    “Hi, excuse me miss?” Michael says to the pretty nurse working on the computer. “I’m looking for someone who works here. Maybe you can help me.”

    “Michael?” says a voice behind him.

    Michael turns around and is surprised to see Elizabeth. “Umm..hi.”

    “Aren’t you supposed to do be in school?” she asks.

    “Yeah….but I had something to do.” Michael turns away and rolls his eyes. Michael hasn’t really liked Liz since he found out she cheated on his cousin Lucky. “Maybe you can help me,” he says. “I need to talk to someone….about my mom.”

    Liz’s stomach drops. It’s no secret she hates Carly. Carly’s always putting her nose in things that don’t concern her. Hell, she still blames Carly for meddling in her relationship with Jason and Lucky. “Well Michael if you want to talk to me you can.”

    “No offense Elizabeth, but you’re not someone I would talk to about my mom. Is Dr. Winters around?” Michael says looking around, anxious to find someone other than Elizabeth.

    “I can leave a message for her to call you if that’s what you’d like.”

    “Yes, that’s good.” Michael hands her a piece of paper with his number on it. He walks to the elevator and steps on. He keeps the doors from closing and says, “Thank you Nurse Webber….Elizabeth. This is really important to me.”

    Liz smiles at Michael and says you’re welcome. She picks up the phone and begins calling Lainey.

    Back inside the elevator, Michael tosses the hair from his eyes and sighs. “I hope mom understands what I’m trying to do.”
    The role of Serena Baldwin will now be played by Ambyr Childers (ex-Colby, AMC).

    Serena dumped her books on her bed and shook Maxie awake. “Wake up, it’s like eleven! Don’t you have summer class or something?”

    Maxie punched her pillow. “Or something.” She mumbled into her pillow. “Why are you waking me up?”

    “Hunter hasn’t been in class in a week. He won’t answer my calls or my texts. I stopped by his dorm room and Jack said he is gone. All of his stuff is packed up and gone. Apparently he’s been gone almost a week. He never told me he was leaving.” Serena tosses her phone on the bed. “In fact, he told me he was going to stay in Port Charles for the summer.” Serena said angrily.

    Maxie pushed herself up into a sitting position. “Why do you care about that loser anyways? Do I have to remind you how he acted the second your back was turned and he was with that brunette tramp? Mind you, this wasn’t the first time he’s done that. So he left, just let it go. You’ll get over it. All guys leave. Trust me.”

    Serena wasn’t buying it. “No Maxie, not all guys leave. Hunter and I had something special. You wouldn’t understand.”

    “I wouldn’t understand.” Maxie snorted. “Please Serena. I have the real deal before. Your relationship with Hunter was about as special as receiving a gift from your boyfriend…that he gave to his ex. Hunter was a loser with a complex who hit on girls right before your eyes! Wake up! That is not something special. It’s lame.”

    Serena laid down on her bed and focused on a mark on the ceiling. She stayed like that for a long time. “Maybe you are right.” She said slowly. “Maybe I should let it go.”

    “You should.” Maxie wasn’t being mean when she said, “I hate to say this, but everyone gets dumped sometimes. It happens. Maybe his plan was to go home early and not tell you. It has happened to the best of us, we just have to move on.”

    “I know.” Serena rolled over and let her blond hair fall into her face. “I just have never been dumped like this before. I don’t want to cry any more though, you know?”

    “Crying over a guy is so lame anyway.” Maxie said confidently. “This summer we will have an awesome time! Think of all the guys we will meet! In no time you will be saying Hunter who?” Maxie laughed. “I can’t believe I have to go to summer school, but so be it. At least you will be here with me.” Maxie lay back down. “I’m going back to sleep, ok?”
    Alexander walked through the front doors of the mansion that he and Cassandra were currently living. He has a lot of things on his mind and he didn’t need Cassandra giving him a hard time. He made his way into the kitchen where he figured she might be. Looking like a little girl lost, she sat there eating her breakfast. He nodded to the cook. “Can you excuse us please? I need to talk to Cassie.”

    Cassandra whipped around in her chair, happy to see Alex. “Alex, where have you been? I was getting worried about you. You have been gone a long time.”

    Alexander sat down next to her. “There is no need to worry, I’m fine. Did you sleep alright?”

    “Just fine. Where did you go this morning?”

    “I had some business to attend to in Port Charles. Everything is good now.” He smiled tenderly at her. “Everything is just fine.

    Cassandra still looked worried. “Did you? You know…. Did you see?”

    Alex wiped his hand across his brow and frowned, cutting her off. “Cassie, you know I hate it when you ask me these questions. You know you aren’t supposed to yet you continually ask. What do you think will happen when the day comes when I am not here to protect you? You don’t want a repeat performance, do you?”

    Cassandra shook her head and whispered. “No. I’m sorry.”

    Alex picked her up and hugged her tightly. “I’ll always protect you…remember that.”

    Cassie smiles, tucks her hair behind her head and walks out the room. Alex takes a cup of coffee from the counter and walks out to the terrace overlooking the water. A devious smile forms on his lips.
    Next...on Port Charles
    - Ric continues to hide something from Alexis
    - Anna receives another cryptic call
    - Dillon returns studying abroad and runs into Maxie
  8. Unfortunately, scheduling problems and lack of ideas has left me with no other choice but to end this fan fiction. It's a sad day for me, but this is a decision that I felt had to be made. I want to thank all the loyal readers (you know who you are) for following ANWT for this long. I also appreciate all the feedback that I've received, good and bad alike, during the course of this fan fiction. Lastly, I could have never have done this without the help of 2 amazing friends. P.J., you are a God-send. Co-writing this fic together was a phenomenal experience that will always be remembered. Thanks for all your support, nagging, and friendship. I wouldn't have had it any other way. DrewH, without you, I would have gone crazy. Thanks for helping me keep my cool and giving me great story ideas in the process. And to all the readers, whoever and wherever you are, thanks for letting us turn your world. It's been a fun ride.

    With that said, the ending will be posted in parts. Each part will be posted whenever I can get around to it, so please be patient. And now, part 1 of "A New World Turns: The Ending". :)


    Carly finds Brad an apartment to sub-lease at the Oakdale Towers. Brad nitpicks the place to death, until Carly finally shuts him up. She points out he was all for pushing her to "move on" when Jack left town. Now she's the one advising him to move on with his life. Brad reminds her they've never been friends. He's always been a pain in the ass, Carly admits. But he grew up a little while Jack was out of town, looking out for her and the kids the way he did. That makes him family. Rolling his eyes, Brad admits the fabulous apartment isn't that bad...all it needs is a recliner and a big screen tv to make it perfect. Carly says he might want to add a bed, unless he plans on unrolling a sleeping bag on the floor. And sleeping alone for the forseeable future.

    Jack calls in a favor and gets access a copy of the OPD file on Carly's accident. Other than Katie, the OPD had no suspects. He's upset to find a report detailing the earlier vandalism on Carly's car that he knew nothing about. The detective's notes question if the incidents are related. Jack's face turns ashen and he storms out to his car. Pulling out his cell, he leaves an angry message---"you have a lot of explaining to do."

    Jack remains silent during dinner, and after she sends the kids to do their homework, Carly asks what's bothering him. Calmly, Jack asks why she didn't tell him her car was vandalized. Carly shrugs her shoulders and reminds him he wasn't around. At the time, she wasn't even sure if he gave a damn about her. Kissing her, he tells her everything he's done, he's done for her.

    A few days later, Carly takes Brad to the mall, to help him furnish his new apartment. While they shop, Brad notices Mac out of the corner of his eye. He doesn't say anything to Carly, but he makes an excuse and confronts Mac, thinking he's stalking Carly. Mac tells him he's an idiot, that he's picking up some equipment for the hockey team. Brad backs off, but he's still suspicious. Later, he plays the sympathy card and invites himself back to supper at Milltown, and takes Jack aside, volunteering to help him "knock some sense" into Mac, Snyder style. Parker walks by and overhears Jack thank him for watching out for Carly, but refuses to confront Mac. After Brad leaves, Jack insists on staying the night with his family---on the couch.

    The next day, taping runs late at WOAK. Expecting his furniture, Brad asks Jimmy to wait for the delivery men. When he's finally done with work, Brad runs in to Carly in the parking lot. She chides him for acting like a kid at Christmas, anxious see the presents Santa's brought. Brad reminds her she had fun too---spending his money. Carly admits she did, and Brad invites her to be his first official houseguest...and help do all the "woman-y things" like arranging the furniture. She agrees. When they arrive, everything's been delivered but the bed. Brad thanks Jimmy, and he and Carly are soon engrossed in unpacking and rearranging the furniture.

    When the kids arrive home from school, Jack is walking up the block to greet them. While JJ and Sage do their homework, Parker asks Jack if he had a talk with Mac. Jack denies it, and wonders why Parker's asking. Parker admits he overheard Brad accuse Mac of stalking Carly. And that while Carly befriended Mac at first, she grew uncomfortable around him, and he saw them arguing on the porch the last time Mac stopped by the house. Jack assures him there's nothing to worry about. Parker berates him for acting like it's no big deal. Maybe if Jack had been around to see it like Parker and Brad were, he'd think differently. Parker has a bad feeling about Mac---he thinks he's lying about something. And frankly, he thinks Jack's lying to him too.

    A knock at the door interrupts them. It's Margo, accompanied by two cops. She tersely asks if Carly's home. Carly's still at work, Jack tells her. Margo shakes her head. Carly's not at WOAK. When Jack asks why Margo wants to know, she takes him aside and tells him 911 got a call half an hour ago from Oakdale Towers---Brad's been stabbed. He's been rushed to Memorial, and it doesn't look good. Jack asks what that has to do with Carly. Carly was seen entering the building with Brad, Margo answers. But no one saw her leave. And her purse was found at the scene. Jack pales---Carly's obviously been kidnapped. Margo hesitates--or she's the suspect in an attempted murder. Jack scoffs at the idea. Margo's serious. She mentions the fact Carly's been seen with Brad all around town lately. She was helping Brad set up residence, using his credit card and ordering furniture, including a bed. She even mentions Katie accused Carly and Brad of having an affair minutes after Jack left town. It wouldn't be the first time a lover's spat had ended in violence.

    Jack tells Margo she's wrong...he and Carly are back together. Margo snidely reminds him it wouldn't be the first time Carly's deceived him. Jack snaps, reminding her Carly was nearly run down just a few weeks ago. Margo says it was probably just an accident, and Carly used it to drum up sympathy. Finally, Jack comes clean. The reason he suspects someone is after Carly, is because someone's after him. Right before Christmas, Jack went back undercover with the FBI after they informed him Ben Harris had been brutally attacked. An obituary of Joe Teague was left at the scene, along with an old newspaper article about Jack finding the evidence that linked Teague to the Milltown Church fire. The FBI has been investigating a white supremicist group headed by Joe Teague's son, Junior. Ben was put into protective custody, and the Bureau wanted to put him, Carly and the kids under protection too while they hunted Junior down. Jack refused, staged a break up, and left town to keep his family safe. Margo chastises him for not informing her--she could have at least placed the house under surveillance while Jack was out of town. Jack assures her he made his own arrangements before going undercover and trying to get information from one of Teague's old buddies about where Junior might hide out. He couldn't find out anything useful, and he came home after hearing about Carly's accident.

    Margo puts out an APB on Carly's car, and Jack asks to be a part of the investigation. He calls the FBI, hoping they've had a break in finding Junior. Emma comes over to be with the kids, while Margo authorizes police protection for the house. Emma tries to reassure the kids, but Parker overhears the officers speculate that Carly's probably already dead. Convinced that Mac is behind Carly's disappearance, he sneaks out of the house with a baseball bat. While Parker hides in the bushes at Mac's house down the street, Carly wakes up in the dark, screaming, recalling finding Brad laying in a pool of his own blood.

    Parker spies Mac sitting in his front room, in front of his laptop. When Mac leaves the room, he sneaks inside the house, and is shocked. There are candid pictures of his family hanging on the wall, along with schedules of their weekly activities written out. When he hears Mac returning, he waits by the door, and hits him in the back, knocking Mac to the floor. As the older man coughs up blood, Parker shouts he wants to know what Mac's done with Carly. Mac denies any involvement, and Parker hits him again. Parker shouts Brad was right, Mac is some stalker-pervert fixated on his mom. Slowly, Mac crawls into a corner as he coughs up blood. Parker raises his bat again, as Mac tries to calm him down. Mac understands that it looks bad, but he's not stalking anyone. He's been protecting them. Parker laughs at him--he's a cop's kid, he'd have known if they were under police protection. Understanding nothing he says will convince Parker, he offers up proof. The phone number of the man who hired him.

    Emma panics, realizing Parker's taken off. The officers search the house and call Jack, who races home. The officers report they've searched the area, and Parker's bike is still in the garage. Jack tells them to keep searching and begs Emma not to worry before taking off again.

    Parker tells Mac he's calling the police instead, and pulls out his cell phone. Hearing someone else enter the house and call out Mac's name, he hides by the door and raises his bat. Just as the person steps through the doorway, Mac yells at them to duck, and they roll to the floor as Parker swings and misses. Parker's ready to swing again, but stops cold when he realizes it's Jack. Parker tells him he's found Carly's kidnapper--Mac. Jack yells at him, asking what the hell he's doing running out on Emma in the middle of a crisis. Mac yells at him explain everything before Parker hits anyone else with the bat. Then Jack comes clean. Mac is ex-FBI, the first partner Jack had when he joined the Bureau. Parker was right, Jack lied when he left town---but it was to go undercover--and he only agreed knowing someone he trusted would be protecting his family. He got Mac the job at the rink, so he could have a way to keep an eye on them without scaring either Carly or them. Mac called him right after Carly's accident, and Jack decided to come home. Jack assures him there's no way Mac had anything to with Brad's stabbing or Carly's disappearance.

    Parker apologizes to Mac, and Jack scolds him for taking matters into his own hands. As Jack arranges for a squad car to take Mac to the ER, he gets a call on his cell phone. The caller's voice is disguised, and he's told that if he wants the blonde returned safely, he'll come to where Joe Teague was murdered. Alone.

    Carly explores the cabin she's being held in. To her horror, she realizes it's the same cabin she and Jack took refuge in after being trapped by Joe Teague in the tool shed and nearly freezing to death. Where Jack was stabbed and Teague was killed after fighting with Ben Harris. Carly desperately tries to escape, but the door is barred from the outside and all the windows are boarded over. Carly hears someone outside and tries to hide, hoping she can just rush out past them. She can't see the man's face, but he advises her not to run, and holds a gun out for her to see. Besides, her hero is on his way to rescue her---she wouldn't want to miss that. Carly tells the man he'd be better off leaving---Jack will kill him for taking her and killing his brother. The last he heard, Brad was hanging on in the ICU at Memorial. Then all he has to do is let her go, and he'll live, Carly tries to bargain. Jack needs to pay, the man tells her, turning around and introducing himself as Joe Teague Jr. Carly pales recognizing Jimmy, the intern from WOAK.

    Joe/Jimmy tells her to scurry out from the corner she's hiding in. He's not going to hurt her---at least until Jack gets there. He laughs as Carly stays hidden, and tells her how fun it was being so close to her at WOAK, knowing he could just kill her anytime he wanted. It amused him to see her operate, bedding Brad while Jack-the-hero was out of town. And the way she tortured poor Katie made him hate Carly all the more. That's why he trashed her car---for Katie---but he also hoped to scare her enough to bring Jack back to town. It took nearly running her down to do that though. He could have played this out for months, but when Katie left town, it left him without someone to take the blame. So he stepped up his timetable. And when Brad asked him to let the furniture guys in and she showed up too---it was the perfect opportunity.

    Carly and Joe/Jimmy hear a car pull up, and Carly makes a break for the door, screaming for Jack to stay away. Jimmy hits her, knocking her down, then grabs her up by the arm and hauls her out to the porch with him. Pointing his gun to her head, Jimmy tells Jack to toss away his gun, then kneel down. His dad would want his murderer to die on his knees. Jack wants Jimmy to let Carly drive away in his car first before he'll toss the gun. Carly's horrified and begs Jack not to agree---Jimmy's going to kill her either way. Jack tells her that's not true, Jimmy promised Carly wouldn't be harmed. Jimmy laughs...as long as Jack knows what a faithless bitch Carly was, sleeping with his brother, he'll let her go. He tells Jack to throw his gun away and walk away from the car. When Jack does, Jimmy drags Carly with him off the porch, and moves with her closer to the car. Eyes locked on her, Jack tells Carly he loves her.

    When they get to the front of the car, Jimmy tosses Carly to the ground and shoots three rounds into Jack's chest. Carly scrambles for the car door as a shot rings out, dropping Jimmy to the ground. Screaming, Carly dashes over to Jack, begging him not to die as she presses her hand over his chest. Jack groans, and tells her not to worry, she's not getting rid of him that easily. Carly feels a solid mass, and realizes Jack's wearing a bulletproof vest. Suddenly she's aware of a handful of FBI agents swarming the scene, and realizes he had an entire squad backing him up. Relieved beyond belief, she smothers him with kisses. Jack groans in pain, and protests going to a hospital when one of the medics suggests it. Carly overrules him, and tells him she's putting her foot down. The sooner he's healed, the sooner they can get married. Jack laughs that he hasn't asked her yet. Carly tells him she's not waiting for him to ask, they're getting married exactly one week after he's discharged. No ifs, ands or butts about it. Laughing, Jack agrees---but he's not taking her name. Carly kisses him, and tells him to shut up.

    Westwood Park, Ria’s House

    Natalia knocks on Ria’s door. Ria opens it up.


    “Hey girl. It’s good to see you.” Ria hears the Bryan’s crying in their stroller behind Natalia.


    “Girl, I’m not feeling no chill’rens right now. My stories are on girl. I’m trying to find out who killed Diane Jenkins and just who exactly is the real Todd Manning.”


    “You and your soap operas I swear.” She says entering her bestfrieds house with her the double stoller.


    “Girl you know I hate to be interrupted during my story time. So what is going on?”


    “Well I came to see how you were. I have not seen you in a wile. I’ve been so caught up with Bryan, Sabryn and her trial.”


    “I’ve been ok. Just taking it day by day. Watching my soaps keeps my mind of my own problems.”


    “Well watching your soaps is not helping the cause. So what’s next? Are you going to get treatment for this breast cancer?”


    “I have not gotten that far. I’ve been so scared. I don’t know what to do I just can’t’ believe this is happening to me.” Natalia walks over and gives Ria a hug as Bryan Jr the 1st begins to cry.


    “Damn girl. Can’t you shut that damn baby up!?”


    “It’s Sabryn’s big headed son who keeps being a cry baby. I don’t know what to do. He won’t shut up. I can’t live my life because all he wants to do is be a cry baby like his mother.”


    “Well you ever think he needs his real mother Nat? With as much as Bryan charges for his whack as drinks at his club, he need to be hiring you a baby sitter or nanny or something.”


    “It’s all about my son. And keeping my family together. I am doing this for my son. You’re right though. Bryan is making a killing of his notorious expensive drinks at his club. I should be able to live out my life to. I should hire a nanny or something to help out with Sabryn’s bad ass son.”


    “Do you really have to since Sabryn is going to jail right?”


    “To be honest, I really don’t know. It’s looking like Sabryn's lawyer may beat Sabryn’s murder wrap.”


    “Wow, Sabryn shot Ashley eight times in front of police. How does she get away with that?”


    “I want to know the same thing. But it looks she’s about to. And the first thing she is going to do is come after me and my family. I have to be ready?”


    “Well I will say Lisa is a bad ass lawyer so I am not surprised she’ll get those charges against Sabryn dropped. I will say Nat, Sabryn is a strong person. Are you going to be able to go head to head with her?”


    “Ria, I’ve won so far. I got her baby’s father, I got her son, and I now got the company she once dreamed of having. Her fashion house is non existent now. I have the life she wants. She can’t touch me.”


    “How can you be so sure?”


    “I asked Bryan to marry me?”


    “Shut up hoe! No you didn’t. How did that come about?”


    “Oooo, Ria you would be so proud. I gave Bryan some good p u s s y and I think he is falling in love with me. He is showing me he cares about me. All it took is some good sex.”


    “I know that’s right girl. You doin the damn thang. So what did Bryan say? Is he going to marry you?”

    Lavender Hill, Karim’s Mansion

    Alexis unlocks the door and walks in. She is stunned to see Karim lying naked on a red satin sheet with rose pedals all around him and the floor. Candles are light and the lights are low. Soft music is playing in the background “So Sexual” by Sisqo. Alexis is quite impressed with the scene of romance.

    “What is all of this?”


    “I’m glad you came. I didn’t think you would come home.”


    “And why wouldn’t I?”


    “A lot has been going on between us lately. Ladonna, my father and mother, my brother’s suicide, your sister, her child. “


    “It has been a lot. “


    “I just wanted you to know that I love you and I believe in you. We haven’t had any “us” time. And I felt the tonight it could just be us. So why don’t you get more comfortable and lay here with me.”

    Alexis is seduced. Remebering how she fell in love with Karim in the first place. His looks, his body, his sensual eyes. She takes her clothes off and lies next to Karim. He holds her.


    “This feels so good Karim. I’ve missed this.”


    “I’ve missed you. And I love you Alexis. I apologize about my recent behavior, my drinking and the incident with your sister.”


    “So does this mean you are done drinking?”

    Karim Looking into her eyes,

    “Alexis, I love you, No issues. Not tonight. I just want to love you.” He kisses her passionately. He then pulls back and looks at her once more.

    “Alexis I love you and I can’t wait to be a family. You have made me the happiest man in the world. Having my child, it’s something no one else can give me.”


    “Karim I love you to.” She kisses him back and they lean back and make love to the music. Alexis makes sure she enjoys this love session with Karim as she knows it could be her last.

    Downtown Pasadena, City Jail

    Bryan walks up to Sabryn’s cell.


    “Why are you here? Shouldn’t you be at home with that tramp Natalia? playing house with my son?”


    “That was quite a show you put on with Mike today at court.”


    “Was it? The only show I was interested in was the one about me about to beat this murder rap. And you know what is going to happen next when I get out of here?”


    “Yea yea same old story Sabryn. Revenge.”


    “I can’t believe you are so calm. So you enjoy hurting me Bryan? The only thing I did was love you. How did we get here? Why did you do this to me? Being with Natalia and letting that low class slut raise our son? Why? What did I do to you for you to do me like this?”’


    “I was scared! I thought you weren’t going to beat this murder rap Sabryn Jesus Christ you shot Ashley in front of police eight times! How do you except to get away with that? I had to do what was best for my family and Natalia was on the same page.”


    “Of course that leech would be. She would do anything to get at me. She’s holding this stupid grudge against me. Well Bryan it looks like I am going to beat these charges. And you should already know when I get out of here I am coming for you and that nasty skank of yours. And of course I will obtain my son. You went too far by being with nasty Natti. That’s unforgivable to me. You have forever ruined us. My son will never know you as his father. So enjoy this time you have with him now.”


    “You won’t be able to take my son away from me. I won’t let you.”


    “How do you expect to stop me?”


    “Well first off, you’re not the same Sabryn. This murder has really brown nosed you. You have lost everything. Your money, your power, and your respect. You don’t have that much to get my son from me.”


    “And why is that? Because you had an affair with Ashley. This all stems from that. You did all of this. And I will do some error correction.”


    “Natalia asked me to marry her.”’


    “You Bastard! A dirty Bastard! I can’t believe I have a child with you. And what did you say? Are you going to marry that whore?”


    “You’re going to marry Natalia?” He says walking in on the scene.


    “This is none of your business super man.”


    “I care for Sabryn. I don’t understand why you here Bryan. I have seen nothing but you hurting Sabryn. She doesn’t need you here rubbing in the fact that you are marrying her enemy.”


    “I didn’t say we were getting married. I just said she asked me to marry her. This is none of your business Mike. I have a child with Sabryn and you can’t touch that. Never!”


    “Not trying to my friend. It seems you are jealous.”


    “Of what?”


    “That Sabryn and I are moving closer and you wish it was you. You see you’re the runner up. You got Natalia. I got the grand prize, Sabryn. You have hurt Sabryn deeply and that’s just something she will never forgive. I would advise you not to waste your time coming around her.”


    “Who the hell do you think you are man?” Bryan tries to punch Mike but Mike blocks his punch.

    Mike, chuckling

    “ There there now. Calm down. You don’t want to hit the chief of police now do you?”


    “Take that title and shove it your mother’s ass Mike.”


    “You know Bryan. I’ve dealt with this kind of situation before. I had to deal with Ty taking Jenn away from me. I’ve learned a thing or two from that. And let me tell you I won’t lose Sabryn to you. I mean I know it won’t even be an issue considering what you are doing to her. And look at where Ty is now, in jail. “

    Bryan is furious knowing he is defeated just walks off.


    “Wow Mike. You were amazing. That was amazing.”


    “I’m not going to let Bryan hurt you no more.” He grabs her hands through the bars. She leans in and kisses him.


    “Mike, I think I’m falling in love with you.”

    Divine Design

    Natalia pushes the Bryan’s baby stroller into her new office. She sits at her desk and thinks about what Ria said.

    “Bryan should hire you a nanny.” Sabryn’s son begins to cry and Natalia scream out in frustration.

    “Shut up damn it!”

    “I’m not going to deal with this. I need time to make sure Rufus doesn’t undercut me here at DD. And I have to be ready in case Sabryn is set free. I can’t do all this and raise her damn brat. And now I got Diego back in town playing games with me. I know he’s up to something.” Natalia logs onto her computer and decides to place an add on Craig’s list for a nanny.

    Court is now back in session in Downtown Pasadena.

    Rufus, Sabryn, Mike, Bryan, Karim, Ladonna, and Alexis are all in attendance.


    “State, call your next witness.”

    Jack, standing up

    “Your honor, my next witness is a doctor and has an emergency at the hospital. I ask for a delay until tomorrow.”


    “I see. Does the defense wish to call anybody in the mean time? We can at least get that out the way. This trial is taking to long and taking up to much tax dollars.”


    “My pleasure your honor. I call Rufus Taylor to the stand.” Sabryn smile sand looks at Alexis. Alexis rolls her eyes at Sabrina and looks away. She lays her head on Karim’s shoulder and holds his hand. Ladonna notices this sweet scene of romance and is not impressed.

    “Do all that while you can Alexis. Rufus is about to expose you.”

    Rufus, struts himself up to the witness stand. The chatter increases, as people in the courtroom don’t know what to make of this cross dresser. Rufus is sworn in and Lisa approaches him.


    “How shall I address thee?”


    “I would like to be called Miss Rue. I’m a bad ass Bitch around Pasadena now. So I need to be respected in that capacity. So it’s Miss Rue.”


    “I’m impressed. You know I remember you from trial’s before. You have come a long way Miss Rue. I must say you look nice.”


    “Thank you. It’s been a long time coming. And I must say this is only the beginning.”

    Alexis standing up

    “Objection, this is supposed to be about Sabryn killing Ashley. I don’t pay my tax dollars to hear about this trannys trials and tribulations. My sister is dead; she was assassinated, being shot 8 times in front of police. I want justice damn it!”

    Karim pulls Alexis back down as the judge pounds on her gavel.

    “One more outburst from you Miss Jones and you will find your self behind bars.”


    “She’s getting nervous.”


    “Don’t start Ladonna. I have Karim and you don’t It’s that simple. Now just leave us the hell alone. Stop stalking us.”


    “She’s right Donna. Just please leave us alone.”

    Ladonna, with a tear forming in her eye,

    “You’re going to be so sorry Karim.”


    “Your honor, I have a method. This is all leading into my point. I am setting it up. Please indulge me.”


    “I’ll allow it.”


    “Thank you ya honor.” Lisa now walks over to the jury.


    “Miss Rue, could you tell us about your relations with the deceased Ashley Jones?” Everyone in the court room leans closer, on the edge of their seats to hear what Miss Rue is about to say. No one is waiting more intently then Alexis and Ladonna.

    Miss Rue

    “I sure can. My relations with Ashley were not pleasant. Ashley kidnapped me and held me hostage. She held me hostage in a place where Mona was. Mona, Abe, and Sharon. It was terrible. It as something straight out of a Saw movie. Ashley kept talking about getting revenge on Sabryn and how she stalked her for months disguised as a lady in red. At the same time Mona was the lady in black. Ashley kept talking about winning Bryan. I even knew that Ashley stole Natalia’s baby, making Natalia believe that her child died when she was shot. Ashley is also the one who shot Natalia at the fashion show. You know the one where Jodie told the world she had HIV. Ashley is evil. Pure evil. Straight from hell. She even used a chain saw to sodomize me. The bitch was so insane she thought she was Jason Voorhees.”


    “Wow. It seems the state left all this information out. Ashley has a record of unstable behavior. Ashley was a demented criminal herself. A menace to society. Maybe it’s a good thing justice was served with her death.” The courtroom is outrage. Alexis burst into tears and Karim holds her.


    “Oh Karim. How can they just demonize my sister this way? She’s dead. She’s not her to defend herself. This is all so terrible.”


    “It’s ok Lexie. I’m here for you.”


    “Not for long.”

    Lisa, walking over to Rue

    “Can you tell us if Ashley was working alone? Was there anybody who was helping her?”

    The courtroom is dead silent


    “Yes.” Chatter erupts once more. Alexis’s mouth drops and she begins to sweat. Karim looks at Alexis and Ladonna can do nothing but smile out of enjoyment... The time has come.


    “Is the person who helped Ashley in this courtroom right now?” A pause is had. Alexis has a burning sensation in her stomach. Karim begins to get uncomfortable as he watches Alexis squirm. He begins to wonder if everything Ladonna has been telling him for months is true.


    “Yes they are!”

    Alexis and the courtroom are stunned. Alexis doesn’t know what to do. She is about to be exposed. She wants to stand up and stop the proceedings but she knows if she does it will be an admission of guilt and she’ll lose Karim for sure.

    “This is not supposed to happen. This is not part of the deal I made with Rufus. He’s going to betray me. I am going down!” She thinks to herself.


    “Miss Rue can you identify the person who was helping Ashley? Who is the person that helped kidnapped you and also knew about Mona and all the crimes against the Williams family?” Sabryn, Mike, Bryan, Karim and Ladonna turn and look at Alexis.


    “Oh My God.!” She stands up and gives Rufus a look.

    Rufus smiles at her

    “It was her. Alexis Jones. She knew the whole time Ashley was alive and knew the goings on about Mona. It was Alexis Jones!”


    “Alexis, has finally been exposed!”

    Tanisha’s finger gripped closer to the trigger. Until she hears someone coming towards her.


    Put the gun down T.


    You actually showed? Nice tux.


    Could we have a gunless conversation?


    I need to do this.


    Then what? You get caught? You go to jail? That’s not a life I want to see you lead.


    What the hell do you care about me Bernard?


    I’ve always cared about you T. Just lower your riffle. We’ll walk away and you and I will be together. How does that sound?

    Tanisha lowers her riffle. He puts out his hand for her to take.


    You can trust me T.


    I just want you to take care of me Bernard.

    Tanisha decides to give into him. She places her riffle over her shoulder and they walk off. Not seen by anyone.

    Another couple sat at a table that was covered in white. Ava drank water as did Nate.


    You stormed out the other day I didn’t get to hear what you thought of my speech.


    I thought your speech was beautiful. You almost had me in tears.


    You couldn’t have told me that afterwards?


    Ava you already had a support group. One in particular.


    Referring to James?


    One and only.

    Ava gets a call on her cell phone. She looks at the caller ID.


    I bet that’s him right now. Go ahead. Take the call.

    Ava stands up to take his call. She shields the receiver to tell Nate how she feels about him.


    You’re acting ridiculous!

    (to James)

    Hey what’s up?


    Hey I know this sounds weird but I’m in the area. You’re at this big wedding that’s going on right?


    Yeah I am.

    Ava begins walking.


    Where exactly are you?


    Do you know the boat house? I’m parked near there.


    Oh I see you.

    Ava waves to James. He sits on the hood of his car.


    What are you doing here?


    I came to say good bye.


    What? Why are you leaving? I thought everything was going good here.


    It really was. I reconnected with you and I found Bobbie. But I just think that it’s time to move on.


    This seems like déjà vu.

    Nate overhears the two talking and decides to interrupt them.


    That sounds like a great idea James. Pack your things and leave.


    (to Nate)

    Don’t do this.


    I also wanted to tell you that I think you two make an amazing couple. You both have become two good friends of mine.


    So you’re not trying to steal Ava away from me?


    Of course not. I’d be lying if I said that there weren’t reacquainted feelings towards her when I came back but seeing you two together just made me realize that I’d only be a burden if I stayed.


    I’m sorry for acting like a jerk.


    You were being chivalrous. That’s a good trait to have.


    I’ll miss the psycho babble.


    At least this time we’re saying bye on good terms. If you two ever want to hang or if you want to talk about Bobbie or visit her grave together. You have my number.


    Definitely. Bye.

    Ava hugs James good bye. Nate shakes his hand. James gets into his car and drives off. Ava looks at Nate.


    So are you done being jealous?


    Yep. I’m actually quite secure with myself. I got my job back with the school board and I have probably the prettiest girl in this whole entire town standing right in front of me.


    Why don’t you move in with me?


    (taken off guard)



    You’ve lived in that damn hotel for so long now. It’s about time you feel right at home!

    Ava places her arms around his neck and kisses him.

    Blake’s parents Edmund and Katrina Hammerton find Lana sitting alone by herself.


    Lana you look darling.


    Katrina. Edmund. Great to see you.


    Can’t believe our boys had a double wedding.


    They grew up so fast. I can only remember when they were playing in our backyards.


    I know. Time is definitely slipping.


    Are you here with anyone?


    Unfortunately no.

    Lana spots Dylan, Vi, Ryley and Jason talking with Sean.


    Definitely not.

    London spends time with her family at their table. She sits down exhausted.


    Looking good sis.


    Better then the first time?


    Much better. You have such a glow to you. Divorce doesn’t do that. I should know.


    Yeah because you pay your divorce lawyer a crap load of money that you can’t afford botox.


    Real funny Brad. And where’s L.J.?


    She’s with her pap pap.

    Gavin holds baby L.J. and coos at the two-year-old in her party dress.


    My baby girl’s been passed along so much tonight.


    That’s because she’s such a beauty. Ever thought of having another one?

    London looks over at John and Alley.


    I feel like I already have. Excuse me.

    London walks over to speak with the both of them but is pulled away by Blake.

    Sean enjoys the moment he’s sharing with his children and his family.


    Tell us more about Cancun Uncle Sean.


    It’s a very beautiful and exotic location. I lived there for three years.


    Maybe we could take a family trip there.


    Yeah I’m sure that wouldn’t have disaster written all over it.

    (to Dylan)

    Dylan you’re such a lucky guy. You have us all here in the same place and nothing’s gone wrong.




    Don’t jinx it you guys. Mom’s still here…alone.


    Hey could I have a minute with our father?

    Jason, Vi, and Ryley leave the father and son alone.


    Ryley’s right. This is a nice family moment.


    Thank you for inviting me. I didn’t know where we stood.


    You’re my dad and I want to make the effort to get to know you. Carrie convinced me.


    She is a fantastic girl.


    Where’s you date? I thought for sure you’d be bringing Kellan.


    Kellan and I are no more.




    Yeah. He turned out to be a different person from who I met. It just didn’t work out and I’m fine with that.

    Carrie finds Dylan talking to Sean.


    There you are. There are so many guests here I can’t keep count. Sean you look handsome.


    And you look heavenly. Like a picture out of a magazine. Why don’t you two have fun. Enjoy this special night.

    Sean walks over to Lana.


    What do you want?


    I’m single.


    Great. I’d propose we get drunk and hook up but I have a feeling you would disappoint me in the sack like you did in life.


    Lana being bitter gives you wrinkles.

    Sean extends out his hand. Carrie and Dylan watch from a distance.


    Look at that.


    Too funny.

    Lana looks at him and laughs.


    Let’s dance you old queen!

    Back at Rena’s dorm, she steps outside to talk with Lenvy and Will.


    We saw Yvonne leave in a huff.


    Is everything okay?


    Yeah. Better then ever. The good news is that Alicia forgave me. Will you did it. You brought us together. If I could hug you I would.


    I actually know that the heavens await for him. His good deed has earned him a passage way to the pearly gates.


    That’s awesome! Thank god.


    So I guess this is it? You two can go off into the light together.


    Unless Will decides that he wants to stay here as a spirit. That was also a possibility. We could float on over to my sister’s wedding.


    It’s my time to go. Rena I should be thanking you for everything.


    Me too. You guided Will to be a better ghost.


    If he was a better spirit it’s because of you. You really are an angel Lenvy. Go on. Heaven’s waiting.

    A bright white light begins to shine in the night sky. Will and Lenvy smile at Rena. Rena blows them a kiss and waves good bye.


    You ready my angel?


    After you.


    Yee haw!

    Will takes Lenvy’s hand and they both vanish into the light. Rena felt relieved. She goes back into her dorm to watch a movie with Alicia.

    Carlos and Jenny make their way up to the brides' and grooms' dinner table. Carlos shakes Blake’s hand as Jenny kisses London’s cheek.


    Where are you two off to?


    I have a surprise for Jenny. Sorry but we have to jet.


    Thank you so much for coming.


    You’re welcome. What an exciting day we had. A victorious one if you ask me. Bye guys.

    Carlos takes Jenny away. Blake looks at London.


    May I have this dance Misses Hammerton?


    Certainly. I was kind of hoping we’d be able to talk with our ex’s.


    Now seems like a good time.

    Blake leads London to the dance floor. They dance close to John and Alley.


    So this is going well.


    For sure. The only disaster was hurricane Nan but that just blew away.




    Yeah Blake?


    Would you like to dance with the bride?


    Sure Blake. Just as long as I’m not dancing with you.

    Blake fakes like he’s going to punch him. Blake dances with Alley.


    We’re having a kid together.


    I know. What happened to the times when we were fighting about petty stuff? Now we’ll have something bigger to argue about.


    Four parents to raise L.J. and baby…?


    I know the sex of our child.

    London and John overhear them.


    She does? I mean you do?


    I know too.


    I take it you’d all like to know what I’ll be having? You don’t want to be surprised?

    Blake and London shake their heads.


    Let’s throw out some baby names.


    Presley if it’s a boy. Vivi if it’s a girl.


    Those names suck!


    What about Matthew if it’s a boy? And Jessie if it’s a girl?


    I like London’s idea. Baby Matthew will be proud to be a gift from god.


    A baby boy?

    Blake hugs Alley and John.



    Dude don’t make me slap you. I need to dance with my woman.

    John bows to London and goes back to dancing with Alley.


    Are you happy with the way things turned out?


    I am. I’m even happy for Dylan and Carrie. It seems everyone who deserves to be together, is together.


    What do you think of all this wedding stuff?


    Not really my thing. You know me John. I’m a simple girl. For me, getting hitched in Vegas would be fun. Because it would be unexpected.


    So if I were to maybe slip a ring on your finger. You’d say yes to eloping?


    Always and forever Mister Snaldry.

    John takes out a wedding ring from his jacket and slips it on her finger.



    Eloping will save us so much money Misses Snaldry!

    Alley laughs at his joke. The two gaze deep into each other’s eyes and share a kiss as a secretive married couple.

    Carrie was being doated on by Michael and Mary Ann. Mary Ann had tears of joy in her eyes.

    Mary Ann:

    Oh you look so pretty.


    The decorators really knew what they were doing.


    Thanks you guys. I feel like the second time around, I was supposed to have my dream wedding go this way. I sort of wish that Lenvy was here to enjoy it.

    Mary Ann:

    We didn’t really know her but I’m sure she’s looking over you right now.


    You’re right. I bet she is.

    A woman and a male’s voice are heard arguing.


    What’s going on?

    Carrie goes to investigate. She steps off of the dance floor to find Juliana and Victor.


    Victor you’re here?


    He was just leaving.


    Juliana it’s not what you think. I came to congratulate you. I want to be sincere. I promise.


    Carrie if you don’t want him here, say the word. I’ll have one of my men escort him out.


    I’m family Juliana! I know how important that is to you.


    It’s okay mom. We can talk.


    I’ll be watching.

    Juliana leaves them alone. She hopes it wasn’t a mistake.


    Always the protector.


    Thanks for coming?


    You look pretty. And alive. That's always a good combination.


    Look we both know our situation is tainted. So…I don’t know what else to say...let’s maybe try to move on from what happened.


    Yeah I agree. Which is why I wanted to get out of here quickly. I just wanted to say. I’m sorry. I should’ve acted differently whenever I found out the truth about us. Instead I went into a downward spiral. I’m a different person. I’ve changed Carrie.


    I believe you. I kind of hope that you do stay. Don’t worry about Dylan. If he sees you, I’ll handle him.


    Yeah…no…maybe it’s best if I go.

    Carrie hugs Victor and smiles. Victor turns to leave but accidentally bumps into Alexia.


    So sorry.


    Hey no problem.



    Are you free to dance?


    I planned this whole wedding. But yeah. I’m free to take a break. I sure as hell need one.

    Victor and Alexia dance together.

    Carlos leads Jenny to the chapel set on "Blue Crystal." Her eyes were closed and her hands were trying to feel anything or get a clue of what was going on.


    Keep your eyes closed. We’re almost there.


    What are you doing?


    Okay. Open them.

    She opens her eyes and sees a chapel. Sitting in the alter is Agatha and Ian Hadley. A minister stands in the middle. Henry and Carinia stand to the side ready to film.


    What is all of this?


    Jenny Fremann. Will you marry me? Here today?

    Carlos gets down on one knee to propose with a diamond ring.


    Of course I will. But…why are we filming it?


    We’re writing your character back into the show.


    Your first scene is your marriage to Miguel. We’ll edit the dialogue when the time comes.


    And I’m a real minister. But I’m also an actor. This marriage will be binding.


    I'm just happy to be here and begged Cairinia to put me in the scene.


    I get to play your mother. Eek. I’m super excited. My grand kids are going to be so happy to see me on TV! And no one knows it better then me how much you two have gone through to get to this day. You two deserve this.


    Jenny I love you so much and I don’t know I just thought spur of the moment we could do it here. The fans will love it but we’ll have this memory for life.

    Jenny is silent. She walks away from him.


    What’s wrong?


    It’s a little overwhelming. And maybe a little sudden?


    We could just film the scene and get married another time if you want?


    No. I’m just worried about something. I’m worried about Nan.


    You need to forget about her.


    She keeps warning that she’s going to do something. And I need to know what that something is!


    So what if she does? She’s out of everyone’s lives, especially ours.

    Henry hands Carlos and Jenny a script to look over.


    I wrote the script myself. Feel free to add anything. Some of it is in Spanish. Hopefully you’re okay with that.


    I couldn’t think of anyone else who better suits me then you.

    (in Spanish)

    Usted es mi vida.


    There is something that I would love to add.


    What’s that?


    (in Spanish)

    Te amo chico! Tú eres mi perfección.

    Carlos smiled at how good her Spanish was. The two hugged and kissed before walking on the set of their soon to be wedding.

    At the bride and groom’s wedding table, Blake and Dylan stand with champagne flutes in their hand. They clink the glasses at the same time with a silver fork. Leon comes around to snap a photo of the couples.


    Picture perfect!


    We would like to make a toast. All four of us.


    The reason we made the wedding ceremony so short was so that we could say our vows to each other now.



    And also because Blake was hungry.

    The band drums the joke.


    John wrote that. Good one.


    I didn’t get to do this at my first wedding and I’m glad I get to do it now. I get to tell you Dylan how much I truly love you. You stood by my side in my most darkest times. Now I get to spend my most happiest times with you. My knight. My hero. My love.

    Dylan takes Carrie’s hand into his.


    Carrie and I met on this campus. She was troubled and I was lonely. I remember when I first looked at her and thought. Dang. That girl is beautiful. I was really nervous to ask her out. It took me about three tries to do it. The way she answered me was pinning me down to the ground with a kiss. That kiss was one of many.

    London turns to Blake and smiles.


    For me I came back to life. Literally. When I did there were pieces in my life that were missing. Things changed. The one thing that didn’t change was the love that I have for you Blake. Which is why I get to share my love with eve

    EPISODE 128
    Written by A. Washington-Beeby
    Story Consultants: ML Cooks, Nick Monarco & C. Nathaniel Richardson


    Kate and Billie sit at a booth at Club TBD together. Sitting stirring her martini as she chews solemnly over what Billie's told her about Nick's plan to take over Titan.


    KATE: Billie...are you absolutely sure that was Justin told you is the truth?


    Billie looks at her mother, unflinchingly. She nods her head before responding.


    BILLIE: Yeah. I'm almost certain of it. Justin seemed...(sigh) he seemed...more than flustered, he...he seemed petrified, really. That's why it's so important that we vote him down.


    Kate looks down at her martini, before looking back up at Billie. Kate's expression remains solemn.


    KATE: We may not be able to do that, Billie.


    Billie frowns, a clear, pressing worry on her face.


    BILLIE: Why not? I mean, the ball's in our court, Mom. You know he's just bluffing...
    KATE: No....Billie, he's not. We'll have to go after him some other way. But....for now...you're going to have to let him have what he wants. 


    Billie looks on at Kate, stunned.




    Anjelica steps into the DiMera living room, and is greeted by a warm embrace by Stefano. Nick stands back, looking on as the other two greet each other.


    STEFANO: Ahhh Anjelica, it's so good to see you again, my dear.
    ANJELICA: Thank you, Stefano. It's been far too long.


    Stefano breaks their embrace, but guides Anjelica toward Nick, one hand behind her back as she steps toward Nick, extending a hand in greeting.


    STEFANO: I would like you to meet our very loyal liaison in our mission. Nick Fallon, meet Anjelica Deveraux.


    Nick extends a hand in return, smirking as Anjelica returns a wry smile his way.


    NICK: Pleasure to meet you, Ms. Deveraux.
    ANJELICA: Likewise. And please, call me Anjelica. We're about to get very familiar, you and I.




    Anita steps into her living room, as Brady sits at the desk in the corner, typing away.


    ANITA: Brady.
    BRADY: Yeah! Anita! What's happening?


    Brady stops typing and turns to face Anita, who leans against the frame of the doorway into the room.


    ANITA: I had a favour to ask you.
    BRADY: Okay.
    ANITA: Well...you know that old blue truck you were using to head over to the general store for groceries.


    Brady nods, knowing which one she meant.


    BRADY: Yeah, the one I nearly crashed into that guy with.


    Anita walks into the room, and sits down on the couch as she talks with Brady.


    ANITA: That's the one. Well...I was thinking...you're relatively handy. If you can do a bit of work on the brakes...I was thinking of selling it, and using the money we get to buy a replacement for you to use.


    Brady shrugs, feeling reasonably confident about the idea.


    BRADY: Seems reasonable to me. You want me to set up an ad online?


    Anita laughs heartily.


    ANITA: You know, crazy old me was thinking of asking you to call the Salem Spectator and place an ad that way. I completely forgot about the internet.

    BRADY: You're living in a new age, Anita.
    ANITA: Ain't that the truth! 


    Anita gets up from the sofa, and walks over toward Brady.


    ANITA: Well, listen. You set the ad up, we'll put it up for, say...$1500 or best offer, and we'll see if we can get anyone to come in and look at it later. Who knows? Maybe we can get rid of the damn thing by tonight!


    Anita pats Brady on the shoulders as she passes by. Brady turns around and looks back at his computer, ready to take on the task.







    Marlena and Sami walk over to Kim and Roman, who are sitting at a booth at the Brady Pub. Roman and Kim are stunned by the news that Eric has married Nicole.


    ROMAN: Now wait just a minute! Eric is marrying Nicole? I thought he was a priest! He can't...


    Sami looks on at her ailing father, worried by his mental lapses. Kim takes Roman's hands into hers, settling Roman back down into his seat.


    KIM: Roman...Eric was defrocked. It wasn't his fault, but...Nicole helped him through it.


    Sami snorts, folding her arms as she looks down, embittered.


    SAMI: You could say that. 
    ROMAN: Well...so...Nicole married Eric...I mean...their relationship didn't cause Eric to be defrocked, did it?


    Kim shakes her head, still looking at a confused Roman.


    KIM: No, Roman. No, she just helped Eric deal with some problems that happened. The important thing is that Eric is happy. We should all remember that.
    JOHN: I'll go along with that.


    Everyone turns as John walks toward the group. Marlena looks on, a deep pain on her face as she looks at her now-ex-husband.




    Nick and Anjelica sit in the DiMera living room, chatting with each other, as Stefano puts away papers at his desk. As he struggles to get up from his seat, Nick and Anjelica's focus shifts to him.


    STEFANO: Alright. Now, I am going to head out. Nicholas. I want you to keep Anjelica abreast of any problems you encounter. Make sure that your plan goes right today at that meeting.

    NICK: Absolutely, Mr. DiMera.
    STEFANO: And Anjelica, I would offer you to make yourself at home, but...


    Anjelica raises her hand, stopping Stefano midsentence.


    ANJELICA: Not to worry, Stefano. I have a wonderful suite at the Salem Inn, and of course, for my campaign, obviously it's best that we keep our little connection private.
    STEFANO: I'll leave you to it.


    Stefano heads out of the room, leaving Anjelica and Nick in the living room. Nick looks over at Anejlica, intrigued.


    NICK: Campaign? You running for office or something?
    ANJELICA: You better believe it. State governor.


    Nick's face lights up at the news.


    NICK: Ahhh, so I see. So I guess it's important to keep our rather...unethical connection private, hm?
    ANJELICA: Absolutely. In fact, the best thing we can do is make sure that no one can connect me to DiMera Enterprises, or Stefano, at all costs.




    Brady walks into the cabin, a digital camera in hand. He walks over to the desktop computer in the corner of the room, all the while opening the flap of the camera holding the memory card. He carefully places the card into a slot on the computer, and prepares to upload the pictures onto the computer, as Anita walks in from the kitchen.


    ANITA: Any luck?
    BRADY: Yeah! Just uploading the pictures now, and it'll be up in just a second.
    ANITA: Wow. Technology these days, hm?
    BRADY: Tell me about it.


    As Brady types up the last of the ad, Anita walks over and puts a hand on Brady's shoulder.


    ANITA: You know, it's been a real help having you here, Brady. It's hard being an old woman separated from her family like this, and my family doesn't come around like they used to. I can't do all the things I've been wanting to do. So, I really appreciate the help.


    Brady hits send, then turns around the look up at Anita, a warm, caring expression on his face.


    BRADY: You know...Anita...you're the one who's helped ME. I needed a refuge from...everything that went wrong in my life up to now. I...I truly haven't had it easy in a lot of ways, but...I almost feel guilty for feeling that way. So many people have it so much worse than me.


    Anita smiles, looking back at Brady lovingly. She sits herself down in the chair by Brady, taking his hands in hers.


    ANITA: Never compare your struggle with someone else's, Brady. You've come a long way in a short amount of time. And, no, I don't know a lot about you, but I know that you're a kind, gentle man. A man who's been hurt a lot..and needs to do a lot of healing. I know you'll tell me about what's happened to you in your own time. Don't feel you need to rush.


    Brady looks at Anita, smiling sheepishly.


    BRADY: You know...I have been feeling so...so down about everything...I just don't wanna burden you with my stupid....stories of self-inflicted wounds. But it comes so easily with you. I feel like...like I've known you all my life. I want to thank you, Anita. You've been a big help to me.
    ANITA: Anytime, Brady.


    After a moment, Brady turns to look back at the computer, and points to it, looking back at Anita.


    BRADY: The ad's gone live!
    ANITA: Fantastic. Thank you, Brady.


    Brady looks back at Anita, smiling genuinely for the first time in a long time.




    In her dimly lit motel suite, Sheryl sits at her laptop, blinds drawn. She sits alone, going through ads on an online classified site, when she spots an ad for an older blue SUV, $1500 or best offer. Intrigued, she opens the ad. 


    SHERYL: 1995...in good shape but brakes will need replacing soon. $1500, or $2000 with brake replacement included. Lakeview Drive. Sounds perfect.


    Sheryl clicks to send off an e-mail about the truck. She smiles her devious smile as she starts her e-mail to come view the truck at Anita's home.




    Billie looks on, stunned by her mother's sudden cowtowing to Nick's blackmail.


    BILLIE: Mother...I have known you a lot of years, and you've never been one to back down against the likes of Nick Fallon.
    KATE: Well, there's a first for everything, isn't there?


    Billie looks at Kate, puzzled. Her voice taking on an incredulous tone as Kate takes a sip of her martini.


    BILLIE: I'm sorry, am I talking to Kate Roberts right now? What is it about Nick that's scaring you right now.


    Kate puts down her drink, noticeably agitated by Billie's pressing of the topic.


    KATE: Look, Billie, you know my history. And you know yours. There's all kinds of skeletons Nick could dredge up at that meeting. None of which you would want exposed. So I think it's best that we play along, do what he says so that we don't alarm him, and build our case against him until we're able to put him away.


    Billie shakes her head, in total disbelief about what she's hearing her mother say.




    The blog will be taking its 400 plus episode blog elsewhere EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, according to creator and headwriter, King Reilly. "It's true! I am moving the blog to a different location for MANY reasons! I'm just not happy here!"...confesses King. "The blog will benefit from being elsewhere. Fans can email me at [email protected] for exclusive details on its new location, and it's NOT where you think! ;) "...teases King. The blog isn't going to another message board promises King...at least not yet. "It's bigger than that. I'm taking the blog to a whole new level. I don't want to reveal too many details! If I post them, a certain other blog will probably steal them!”…King says with a laugh referring to the lack of integrity, originality of another SONBC Blog. “If they want to prove to all of SON they have no originality and are in the field of piracy, that is fine by me.”…King says with a smile. But that is not the reason for the big move. "Oh heck no! I wouldn't give people the satisfaction. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I guess! But I have been threatened with a potential banning so I cannot say anymore. I am moving the blog because SONBC doesn't appear to have much traffic or viewership anymore."

    As for the future, it's very bright. "The cruise ship storyline was one of the most exciting I've done, and it isn't even over yet! The smoke must clear, those that survived still have to get out alive. There are still so many secrets and lies to come out. It will be a multi-week adventure that will leave lives in its wake! And there is a huge new storyline coming up concerning Victor's inheritance and his fortune. He is dying so he knows he needs to set something up to take care of his loved ones. Stefano's impact on Salem will be one of those most heavily felt forces on ever on the history of the show. Brady Black will be returning. The blog will finally tackle a gay love story with Will/Oscar. The Brady/Dimera feud will be amazing and ignited on a whole new level. Stefano never really had a reason to hate the Brady's before. It was simply that Roman was attacking him and trying to nail him to the wall, they kept him from Maggie, and Megan's death, which, turns out, she didn't die until recently.

    Josh rolled over in bed and could feel an intense headache forming. “Hell…” he swore under his breath as his feet hit the floor. He rubbed his eyes and tried to recall the previous night…a fight with Shayne, drinking and then Cassie was the last memory he had. He reached for his phone on the nightstand and came back with a note from Cassie.

    “Reva never came home last night. Left around 7:00, thanks for last night. It’s what I needed – Cassie.”

    Josh crumbled the note up and tossed it into the trashcan beside the nightstand. He picked up his cell phone and saw “13 Missed Calls” from an assortment of people: Reva, Billy, Marah…he turned his phone off, tossed it back on the bed, ignored the countless voice mails and headed to the shower, determined to rid himself of this hangover before Reva returned from where ever she had been all night long.


    And Now..."The Guiding Light"


    Marah and Danny appeared from the ICU hallway to see Reva on her cell phone, leaving Josh yet another message. “Hey, any change?”

    Marah shook her head, “No. He’s just lying there, so still and almost life…” she stopped herself and composed. “Lillian said that they’re going to do a shift change and that should take them about two hours.”

    “Two hours?” Reva gasped. “Well what are we supposed to do just sit here and wait? No, I want to go see Shayne.”


    “Reva,” Lillian approached, “this is typical. We do shift changes twice a day and during that time family isn’t allowed in the ICU, I’m sorry.”

    “But you’ll be here the entire time, right?” Marah questioned.

    “Of course,” she answered. “Listen, Buzz called this morning and he wants to offer you guys a room at the boarding house, free of charge.”

    “No,” Reva shook her head. “No I want to be here if anything happens, right here.”

    “Mom be reasonable,” Marah spoke. “Company is right across the street if anything happens we’ll be close and we have to keep our strength up for Shayne.”

    “She’s right Reva.”

    She shook her head, “All right. Danny would you take us back to the house I need to get a few things, some clothes and insurance information?”


    Danny shook his head. “And Lillian you have our cell phone numbers right?” Reva gestured amongst her, Marah and Danny. “If anything changes, anything…you’ll call?” She gathered up her coat and purse, “Okay, let’s go…I’ve got to find your father.”


    “How are my favorite girls?” Bill asked as he entered the Bauer kitchen.

    “Hey! I’m not a girl,” was the reply Robbie hollered back at him.

    “Squirt…” Bill gave him a high five, “I know you’re not a girl, you’re my favorite little man.” Robbie laughed and went back to eating his apples. “Where’s your Mom?”


    “His mom is right here,” Michelle came down the stairs with Grace in her arms. “Do you want to go see daddy? Huh?” She handed him the baby and finished packing Robbie’s lunch box. “Sweetheart, Mrs. Thompson is here to pick you up,” she handed him his lunch, kissed his forehead and sent him out the door.

    “Bye Bill,” he called from halfway down the sidewalk.

    “Can you believe how big he’s getting? Or how big she’s getting? Huh?” Bill questioned.

    “They’re growing fast,” Michelle noted. “How are you doing this morning? Holding up okay? I know that today’s your day with Grace but I just figured you wouldn’t be here until later.”

    He put Grace in her high chair and gave Michelle a look, “I must be missing something. Why would I give up a day with my daughter?”

    “Um…Shayne’s accident. I just figured that you would have wanted to be with your family today, that’s all.”

    “What accident?”

    “You don’t know about Shayne’s accident? Last night at the Beacon? Bill, how can you not know what is going on? It was in the Mirror this morning. Hope even saw it online in Chicago.”

    “I really have no idea what you’re talking about Michelle,” Bill told her.

    “You need to go to Cedars, right now,” she told him. “Rick and Mel spent the entire night there working on Shayne. He was attacked at the Beacon, he has severe internal injuries, head trauma and he’s in a coma. Did your father not call you?”

    “My phone broke yesterday, I just got a new one.” He grabbed his jacket from one of the empty chairs, “We can reschedule?”

    “Of course,” Michelle answered. “Listen if there is anything Reva or Josh…” she paused, “or you need, please call me.”


    “I will,” Bill told her and then stopped in before rushing out the door. “Can I do something that I’ve been wanting to do for months?”

    “What...” Michelle asked and before Bill could answer, she found herself engaged in a passionate kiss with the father of her daughter!


    Cassie entered the farm much the same way she had left it the night Tammy left for Washington D.C., quite and dark.

    She tossed her purse on the table and was about to head up the stairs for a shower and then to bed when the lights suddenly came home.

    “Decided to finally come home?”


    “Oh my God!” Cassie screamed at the top of her lungs, “Tammy Nicole! What are you doing here?”

    “You know I think I’m going to reverse the mother-daughter role here for a minute and ask you the questions? Where have you been all night?”

    “None of your business,” Cassie answered. “What are you doing here? You’re supposed to be in D.C.”

    “I stopped by the Beacon last night and Emily said that she wasn’t sure where you were so I checked your suite and nope, not there. So I called Towers and then Company and no one had seen you in like hours. Then I decided to just come on back here and wait to see if you eventually showed up.”

    “For starters, I don’t know why you’re here or why you’re giving me the third degree, but I don’t appreciate it. Why are you not in school?”

    “Because when my plane landed in Indianapolis I decided to check my messages and I had like four from Marina and another five from Lizzie. Shayne had some kind of accident last night at the Beacon. I canceled my flight to Washington and headed back home.” Tammy glared at her, “You should probably check your phone, I’m sure…”

    “I turned it off…” Cassie rushed over to her purse.


    “Don’t bother,” Tammy shot back. “I don’t know what you were doing last night or with who, but you stink. Take a shower and get dressed, we’ll talk more in the car.”


    Josh wrapped a towel around his waist and walked back into the master suite to find Reva sitting on the bed. “Well, look who decided to finally come home? You enjoy you’re night out?”

    Reva sat in silence for a moment, “Did you? Where in the hell have you been Joshua? I tried to call you last night. Billy tried, Marah…”

    “Is there a reason you’re checking up on me Reva?” he questioned. “I’m your husband, not your child. I don’t appreciate...”

    “What did you just say?” Reva stopped him. “There is a very long list, which is growing at the moment, of things I do not appreciate, Bud. Have you even bothered to notice that I’m still wearing the same damn dress I was wearing at the wedding last night?” she paused. “I’m going to ask you one more time, where were you all night?”


    “And I told you that I’m not your child that needs to be checked up on,” Josh replied angrily.

    “Don’t…” Reva said softly, almost under her breath as she walked across to the dresser and looked in the mirror at him standing there. “Don’t…do not get some holier than thou attitude with me. And please forgive me if I cannot stomach your self righteous indignation this morning Joshua. I’m a little tired, seeing as I’ve spent the entire God forsaken night at Cedars,” she revealed.

    “The hospital what happened? Reva…”

    “You tell me Joshua, you tell me where you were when I needed you the most? she paused and raised her voice, “When this family needed you the most Bud!”

    “I was having some work issues and decided to go have a beer at Outskirts,” he finally revealed. “I had one to many and I didn’t think it would be a good idea to drive so I got a room at that little run down motel across the street.”

    “Finally, an honest answer,” Reva sighed as she began packing an overnight bag. “You know most middle aged men who have a family, a career and responsibilities don’t normally go out and get wasted. I guess I should be grateful you didn’t drive. That’s the silver lining here isn’t it? Tell me, did you at least go alone?”

    “So why don’t you tell me what’s going on with you. Why are you here drinking like there is no tomorrow?”

    Josh shrugged his shoulders, “It doesn’t matter.”

    “It does matter,” Cassie touched his shoulder. “Come on talk to me, I just opened up to you about Tammy, let me help if I can.”

    Josh finished off his fifth glass of bourbon and took Cassie’s hand, “I have a better idea. Why don’t you forget about Tammy leaving for at least awhile and I’ll forget about what is bothering me and we’ll…” he stumbled off his barstool, “we’ll have us some fun.”

    “Of course I did and I don’t deserve that,” Josh answered. “Are you going to tell me why you spent the entire night at Cedars? Is it Marah?”

    Reva gathered her composure before speaking, “No…Shayne.” She finished dressing and allowed the news to hit him as hard as it had hit her twelve hours earlier. “He was attacked last at the Beacon, in the parking garage. Lucy Spaulding found him.”

    “Oh my God…Reva…is he…”

    “Alive?” she questioned. “Just barely. Rick and Mel worked until about three this morning to stabilize him. He has internal bleeding, severe trauma to his head. The doctors are worried that his brain is either bleeding or swelling…they don’t know which yet.” she shook her head. “He’s in a coma…” she choked back tears as Josh reached for her. “No! No…no…no! You don’t get to sweep in here after the living hell that I have been through last night and make this all better, you don’t get do that…” she yelled! “Do you know how petrified and frightened I was last night? And the answer is no, you don’t because you didn’t go through what I did. I sat there…” she sobbed, “on that sofa and held Lucy Spaudling in my arms and just kept staring at her, covered in Shayne’s blood. Each time that door swung open I just knew, I knew that Rick was going to come and tell me he was gone…” she relived the night in her mind. “I was all alone…I have never needed you as much as I did in that moment…”

    “Why didn’t you call Billy?” Josh questioned.

    “I didn’t want Billy! He’s not my husband. He’s not Shayne’s father. I love him like a brother, but I wanted you and you weren’t there. Do not even try to make excuses for that Joshua!”

    “I’m not Reva. That is the last thing I am trying to do.”

    She wiped her face with the back of her hand and attempted to compose herself. “Danny and Marah are downstairs,” Reva grabbed the bag she had packed through the screaming. “Buzz is letting us have a room at Company and…and…” she repeated.



    “And I want you to sit here for awhile. I want you to worry about Shayne the way I worried about him last night…alone! You sit here and you think about how scared he must have been when he was attacked and then you think about me sitting there in a cold, empty waiting room all night long with the woman who perhaps saved his life and then you think about your daughter pouring out her heart and soul out over a brother she may never see alive again and then after you do that, after you take yourself to hell and back, then you come to the hospital and see your son. But not a moment before…do you understand me? Because I pray to God that you do…” she told him as she stormed out of the room!

    A thick fog nearly consumes the setting when a boat pulls in. A pair of feet steps off the boat and it is revealed to be John Hu. He looks around and likes what he sees. Suddenly, a Don Chi, Hu’s henchman, steps off the boat from behind him. He has a briefcase in hand.

    Don: Pretty foggy here tonight, huh?

    stephennicholsl06.jpgJohn: Just how I like it.

    Don: So you never told me why we’re here in Springfield.

    John: Patience, patience. All good things to those who wait.

    John digs into his pocket and reveals a small photo of Harley. He brightens up at the sight of her.

    John: (putting it back in his pocket) We have to get things prepared for the shipment. Is all the money there.

    Don: (tapping the briefcase) Yep. Counted it twice. Five million dollars.

    John: Good. Let’s get back on the boat and circle around the bay until they arrive with our stash.

    Don: Yes, sir.

    Don heads back onto the boat. John starts to head back onto the boat, and takes one look back . . .

    John: Springfield . . . my home away from home.

    He gets back on the boat and it takes off.

    The room is pure darkness with the exception of the TV, which illuminates Harley. We slowly pan towards Harley, who is nestled up on the sofa, asleep. She’s so peaceful, and we



    Harley is dressed to the “nines.” She is donning a beautiful haute couture gown while she sets on the deck of the yacht, which glides across the Danube River. The scenery—its so captivating and refreshing, mesmerizes her. A male hand then reaches into the frame and grabs her hand, placing a flute with champagne in it. She looks up (and we follow) to see the man is non other than John Hu.

    MeganWardL2007.jpgHarley: John . . .

    John: Ssh. Don’t say a word, my sweet.

    Harley: But—

    John leans in and kisses Harley passionately, silencing her. Then a shot of the boat drifting off into the night, and




    Harley jumps out the sound of someone beating at the door.

    Phillip (O.C.): Harley! Harley, are you there.

    Harley: Ugh.

    Harley gets up, with her hair tossed everywhere, and heads to the door. She snatches the door open to Phillip, who jumps back at the sight of her. He can see the fury in her eyes.

    Harley: What!

    Phillip: We need to talk.

    Phillip barges in without being invited. Harley astonished by this.

    Harley: Umm . . . Phillip, I didn’t—

    Phillip: What is about you not wanting Zach attend Lincoln Prep? It’s a good school!

    Harley: With a lot of spoiled brats!

    Phillip: Just say it, Harley! You don’t want Zach to attend Lincoln Prep or have anything to do with my family or me because you’re afraid he’ll end up just me like.

    On Harley over it,





    The door to the room flings open and Alan Michael rushes into the room, frantic. He starts to scope out the room and Holly trails behind him.

    AM: Mom! Mom!

    Holly: Alan Michael, be quiet! Do you wanna be heard?

    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 . . .

    India: I wonder how Ed is going to take the news—his main squeeze keeping such big secrets from him. (gloating) Bet he won’t like it.

    Ed sits on the porch rocking, and its foggy also. He looks in the night sky.

    Mom, Leslie, and Maureen, if you can hear me . . . (tearing up) please help Meta, Bruce, Mike, and Hope find peace.

    Ed looks down to see someone standing within the fog.

    Ed: Hello?

    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?

    Hope: No!

    Ed: Did something happen? Did Alan harm you?

    Hope: No.

    Ed: Come with me.

    Ed takes her by the arm and tries to take her by the arm, but she jerks away.

    Hope: Don’t you even recognize me!

    Ed: Caroline, are you sure you’re fine?

    Hope: It’s me, Uncle Ed! It is me, Hope!

    On Ed uncertain and shaken,

    We open up on Harley and Phillip in a stand off.

    Harley: Phillip, are we seriously going to do this tonight?

    Phillip: Yes!

    Phillip storms over to the sofa and sits.

    Phillip: (patting the sofa) Come sit.

    Harley: No.

    Phillip: I’m not leaving till we talk.

    Harley: You sure about that?

    Phillip: Harley . . . please.

    Harley sighs heavily and complies with his wishes by sitting across from him.

    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: No.

    Harley: Leave!

    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.

    Harley: Phillip!

    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.

    Harley: Let me go!

    Phillip: No! Not until you listen to me!

    Harley tries to pry free of Phillip’s grip.

    Harley: My opinion isn’t changing, Phillip! Zach is not going to Lincoln Prep. End of story—

    Harley breaks free but falls onto the floor. She holds her arm in pain while Phillip rushes to her side.

    Phillip: (worried) Harley, you OK!

    Harley: No!

    Harley kicks Phillip away from her.

    Harley: See! See! You see why I don’t want Zach anywhere near you! Your family! You’re a bully, Phillip! You’re sick!

    Phillip: Harley, it was an acci—


    Harley looks past Phillip to see Zach standing at the bottom of the stairs. Noticing Harley’s reaction, Phillip turns and sees Zach too. Guilt comes over Phillip.

    Zach: What’s going on? Mom, are you OK?

    Harley: (covering) Nothing. (getting back up) Nothing at all.

    Zach: But I heard you two screaming.

    Phillip: It was nothing, Zach. Just a simple disagreement. (devastated) I-I’m sorry, Harley. Forgive me. (fighting back tears) Forgive me.

    Phillip rushes out of the house. Harley looks on concerned and,

    CUT TO:


    Hope sits on the sofa in utter silence. She’s a total mess. Ed (standing up) watches on from a far, bothered.


    Ed rushes over and opens the door to reveal Holly & Alan Michael.

    MaureenGarrettL.jpgHolly: Is she here?

    Ed points to Hope. Alan Michael rushes in and kneels down next to her. Holly enters and Ed closes the door. They both watch what’s about to happen.

    Alan Michael: Caroline! I’m so sorry.

    She doesn’t respond.

    Alan Michael: I just wanna let you know that you’re not fired. Your job is still intact and I want you to come home with me. OK?

    She still doesn’t respond.

    Alan Michael: Caroline . . . (tearing up) please forgive me.

    She slowly turns to see her son crying. She wipes the tears from his eyes.

    Hope: Don’t cry, my sweet baby. I forgive you.


    Alan Michael kisses her hand and bury his face in it. Ed is now convinced.

    Ed: So I guess it’s true.

    Holly and Alan Michael react.

    Ed: So I guess she is Hope.

  15. All the Days of Our Lives returns on Monday, with new episodes. It will be a little ahead of where it last left off, but there won't be any confusion.

  16. Monday, March 19th

    Anna is having coffee with John at the estate.


    Anna: I know this was quite short notice, but I needed your expertise immediately.


    John: It's fine, my day was slow today and I always like to help out a friend.

    Anna: You've probably already heard the news about McGregor.

    John: That shocked the heck out of me. What's going on?

    Anna: Apparently, it was some software error.

    John: But you suspect otherwise.

    Anna: Cassandra was the first to make the news public, she had the scoop. It just seems as if she had

    some inside information.

    John: Wouldn't be the first time.

    Anna: She's committed corporate espionage before?

    John: It's how she started in the corporate world.

    Anna: Well, if she has a spy in McGregor, I need to find out who it is.

    John: Spies are usually long gone after they deliver their information.

    Anna: Makes sense, but I haven't a clue about who inside the company it could have been.

    John: Low level staffers can do a lot more than you'd ever imagine, even temp workers.

    Anna: And we have a lot of those.

    John: My advice would be to have Yvette and Joseph keep everything very airtight right now, keep as much between them and board as possible.

    Anna: Investors will want to know.

    John: Secure communications over a secured network.

    Anna: We already have that.

    John: Not the kind I'm talking about. My firm has some special software that is made especially for this sort of situation.

    Anna: All right, I'll tell Yvette to contact your firm.

    John: We will get you squared away.

    Anna: Thank you, we've never had to deal wit a spy before.

    John: In this economy, it's more common. Everyone wants to make a quick buck.

    Anna: When we find out who it is, they will be dealt with accordingly.


    Yvette and Joseph are discussing the selling of assets at McGregor, when Leonard walks in.


    Joseph: Afternoon, Leonard.


    Yvette: Yes, we were expecting you.


    Leonard: First things first, since some of our board members can't be present constantly throughout this crisis, they suggested that I

    speak collectively for them.

    Yvette: That's fine, just as long as we have clear communication.

    Joseph: Here is the latest, we have liqudated seven stores already, plus several unused properties.

    Yvette: And unfortunately, we are expanding into furloughs. We have to let a ton of people go just to free up the cash.

    Leonard: Is that enough to fill the shortfall?

    Joseph: Not just yet.

    Leonard: I'll report that to the board.

    Yvette: I'm sure you will.

    Leonard: Just a word of caution, I've talked to some investors, they are growing more restless.

    Joseph: That's not a big surprise. We are working on unloading the men's line next.

    Leonard: Now that ought to fetch a pretty penny, that's a gold mine.

    Yvette: That's why it's up for sale.

    Joseph: We did get some good news today, the bankers granted us an extention.

    Leonard: Yes, that's fantastic news.

    Joseph: It still is uphill from here, though.

    Leonard: I've got to go, but please keep the board apprised.

    Yvette: Of course.

    Leonard leaves.

    Yvette: I think it was him that called Mom and let her know about this mess.

    Joseph: Why would he do that?

    Yvette: I have no idea, but he's been the most vocal since this happened.

    Joseph: His family does own stock, he's probably just protecting their investment.

    Yvette: Could be, but I still think he's a little sneaky.

    Joseph: His uncle was a loyal board member and although he was abrasive at times, he was reliable.

    Yvette: I don't know. At this point, I need to focus strictly on the shortfall.

    Joseph: We are closing the gap, if we get lucky with the men's line sale, we are in the clear.

    Yvette: The offers I am getting aren't quite enough.

    Joseph: I do have one potential offer, but I don't know if you'll like that buyer.

    Yvette: Who is it?

    Joseph: George.

    Yvette: Absolutely not, after all the trouble he caused us, I wouldn't trust him.

    Joseph: He sounds like he's changed and besides, if he's willing to buy the line, it's a clean sale and we owe him nothing.

    Yvette: You've got a point, I'm just very leery about everything now.

    Joseph: Hey, I have my reservations too, but if it comes down to his offer being the one saves this company from falling apart, then we have to take it.

    Yvette: I still cannot believe that this happened. Everything had been going so well.

    Joseph: Let's keep it together and stay focused, we can't afford to miss a step here.

    Yvette: It's just overwhelming, especially now that Mom knows.

    Joseph: We had breakfast this morning, she wasn't pleased that we didn't inform her immediately.

    Yvette: I got the same talking too.

    Joseph: Motivation, that's all I see it as.


    Cassandra and George are at WNOV's studios.


    Cassandra: So, what do you think of my new station?


    George: You've done well fixing it up, but

    Cassandra: There's a but.

    George: I think you goals are all wrong.

    Cassandra: Listen, I know that the McGregor story was to your liking, but is is news.

    George: Which you have used to continue your games.

    Cassandra: This goodie good act doesn't fit you

    George: I grew up bitter and full of anger, hatred. It didn't feel good and I had to let go.

    Cassandra: I'm not bitter and angry at all, I'm running a business and finally doing for myself.

    George: I am glad you doing that, but I can tell you still are consumed with anger. I don't like to see that.

    Cassandra: Call it what you like, it's your opinion.

    George: When are you going to see what this is doing to you?

    Cassandra: It's filling up my bank account, that's what it is doing.

    George: You already ended up in trouble with the SEC over your antics, you may not be able to beat them again.

    Cassandra: That is for me to worry about and trust me, I'm keeping my powder dry.

    George: I guess that's the best I'll get from you.

    Cassandra: Worrying about me is not something you need to be doing. Focus on what is going on with you.

    George: I'm just afraid I'll end up implicated in something you've done.

    Cassandra: You should have no fear of that.

    George: Please, keep it like that.

    Cassandra: Everything I'm doing now, I will own and very happily.

    Sterling walks in.


    Sterling: Cassandra, some of our advertisers want more time, what should I tell them?

    Cassandra: Give it to them, with the money they pay, it's a no brainer.

    Sterling: Cool, I'll get back to them.

    Sterling exits.

    George: Your old partner in crime is helping out, now I know you're headed for trouble.

    Cassandra: Like I said, you need not worry about me.


    Carol arrives at Yvette's office. Yvette's assistant shows her in.

    Yvette: Good day, Carol.


    Carol: Likewise.

    Yvette: I was a bit shocked at you wanting to make an offer on any of our assets, especially since

    it would help save McGregor.

    Carol: I see a lucrative buy and I go for it. I know how strong your men's line is and I'm confident I can make it stronger

    under the Donahue banner.

    Yvette: We are looking for the best offer, because it is such a gold mine.

    Carol: I'm willing to offer you over market value, in fact, double.

    Yvette: Seems you really want this.

    Carol: Oh, yes.

    Yvette: Double market value is good, but I do have to run this by the board.

    Carol: Expected procedure. My bank is ready to cut a check within minutes of this deal being accepted.

    Yvette: You definitely are well prepared to close a deal.

    Carol: This is a rare opportunty, acting fast was something I didn't have to think about.

    Yvette: It has it's risks for us, handing our best asset to our main competition could be suicide. But, our options are limited.

    Carol: You know my offer, so I'm going to make my exit and let you sort things out.

    Yvette: We'll get back to you soon.

    Carol: Oh, I know.

    Carol passes Joseph as she leaves.

    Joseph: What's she doing here?

    Yvette: She put an in offer for the mens line, double market value.

    Joseph: Not hard to tell why she wants it so bad.

    Yvette: Yep. So, what did the rest of the bankers say?

    Joseph: Bad news.

    Yvette: How bad?

    Joseph: They've seized our main stores.

    Yvette: No.

    Joseph: And each day that they don't get a payment, there is a penalty.

    Yvette: We can't cover that.

    Joseph: I know, at this point, we'd have to have someone else buy into the company just to cover cash flow. We just

    don't have enough to sell.

    Yvette: Who?

    Joseph: George offered to help.

    Yvette: If he gets into this company, it's trouble.

    Joseph: I'm afraid that he's the only one we can go to, no one else would be willing to buy into the company, he'd do so

    just to protect the family company. I think he may be sincere

    Yvette: Not long ago, he wanted to bring us down, now he wants to help? I'm not holding my breath.

    Joseph: It's worth a shot. We can't lose what Mom and Dad worked so hard to build.

    Yvette sighs and looks conflicted about what to do. Fade out.

  17. Chloe is standing on the pier. She flashes back to making love to Daniel. Nicole walks onto the pier and walks to Chloe.

    Nicole: Chloe?

    Chloe looks at her and starts to walk away.

    Nicole: Chloe, please. Wait.

    Chloe: What do you want, Nicole? Are you here to tell me about how I’m a bad mother?

    Nicole: Chloe, I just want to talk to you. I’m worried about you.

    Chloe: About what?

    Nicole: You! You wanted a baby so bad, and you finally got Parker, and-

    Chloe: And what? I’m neglecting him?

    Nicole: Chloe, that’s not what I meant!

    Chloe: Do you not understand that I lost everything!

    Nicole: You wanted a baby so bad Chloe. You didn’t loose everything! You have Parker!

    Sami is standing at the bar in Chez Rouge, on the phone.

    Sami: Carrie, I’m just waiting for the food. I’ll be home soon.

    Rafe walks to the bar.

    Sami: See you soon.

    Rafe: So, that’s your home now?

    Vivian watches them from her table.

    Sami: Rafe, I really don’t want to do this right now.

    Rafe: Are we ever going to talk, Sami?

    Sami: I need time!

    Rafe: How much time? What is going on with you? Your ignoring me, your doing nothing to get your kids back.

    Sami looks offended.

    Sami: How dare you!

    Rafe: Sorry. I didn’t mean that the way it came out.

    Sami: You have no idea what I’ve been doing, or how crazy it’s making me!

    Rafe: Sami-

    Sami: Get away from me.

    Rafe leaves. Vivian gets up, and walks over to Sami.

    Vivian: Hello, Samantha.

    Sami: Oh God.

    Jenifer, Shane, and Kim walk into the Horton house.

    Jennifer: So, when are you guys going back to London?

    Shane: I’m going to leave tomorrow.

    Kim: What about me?

    Shane: Just stay here, Kim. It’s safer for you, and I have no idea what we’re dealing with.

    Jennifer: I’m coming. I need to help my cousin.

    Shane: Jennifer-

    Jennifer: Don’t give me a lecture. I’m not a little girl.

    Kim: Same with me.

    Shane looks at them, annoyed.

    Billie unlocks the door to her apartment, and her and Bo walk in.

    Billie: Do you want to call Hope?

    Bo: I’ll call her later. How are you doing? With the accident and everything?

    Billie: I’m good. My physical therapist told me I’m doing very well.

    Bo: Good.

    Billie: You want a drink?

    Bo: Sure.

    Billie walks into the kitchen, and Bo sits on the couch. Billie walks in with two drinks. She hands one to Bo.

    Billie: Bo, look, I’m really sorry. I had no idea that was Hope.

    Bo: It’s not your fault, Billie. I guess it’s better that I knew. I don’t even have a right to be upset.

    Billie: Of course you have a right to be upset! Why wouldn’t you?

    Bo: She signed the divorce papers, Billie. And I jumped into a relationship with Carly when we were still married.

    Billie: Maybe Hope has finally moved on from you.

    Bo: I guess so.

    Billie puts her hand on Bo’s thigh.

    Nicole and Chloe are standing on the pier.

    Chloe: Who the hell are you to judge me, Nicole? You think you are set for life, don’t you?

    Nicole: What are you talking about?

    Chloe: You think you have EJ and Sami’s kids because EJ thought you were a good mother? Please! Even though he’s probably dead, this is still about Sami! He gave you the kids to drive Sami crazy!

    Tears start to form in Nicole’s eyes.

    Chloe: I hope you know it isn’t going to last long. Stefano will get you out of their lives. And even if he doesn’t, what do you think? Their going to love you? Their going to find out everything you did, and hate you, Nicole! How do you think Johnny already feels, being taken away from Sami, and being with you? How do you think Sydney feels when she finds out that you used her in your scheme just so you can hold on to a man?

    Nicole looks hurt.

    Chloe: Their going to resent you, Nicole. And you deserve it.

    Nicole: I know your hurt Chloe-

    Chloe: Leave me alone, Nicole! I’m no fan of Sami, but you are a monster for what your doing to her!

    Nicole starts crying.

    Chloe: Save the tears, Nicole!

    Nicole: That might be true, Chloe. But what about what your doing? You’ve decided to ignore the child you wanted so badly, because your not in the perfect situation! Your not just hurting yourself here; your hurting Parker.

    Nicole walks away.

    Vivian and Sami are standing at the bar in the Chez Rouge.

    Sami: Can I help you with something?

    Vivian: How’s your mother? How’s John?

    Sami: Great. What do you really want?

    Vivian: I couldn’t help noticing your dilemma with Rate.

    Sami: Rafe.

    Vivian: Whatever. Anyway, I feel for you. I know what it’s like. Being used by a man. Being thrown away when something better comes along.

    Sami: Vivian, I understand you might be bored with your life, but I’m not interested in being the source of your entertainment.

    The waiter comes with Sami’s take-out.

    Sami: Thank you.

    Vivian: I have some information I would like to share with you.

    Sami: Once again, not interested.

    Sami walks away, as Vivian sighs.

    Bo and Billie are sitting on the couch in Billie’s apartment.

    Billie: Maybe you can still work it out with her.

    Bo: I don’t know, Billie.

    Bo puts his empty glass on the table.

    Billie: Do you want me to get you another drink?

    Bo: Sure.

    Billie gets up, and goes into the kitchen. She smiles, as she pours his drink. She goes back into the living room, and spills the drink on his shirt.

    Billie: Oh my God. Bo, I’m so sorry!

    Bo laughs, and stands up.

    Bo: It’s ok, don’t worry about it.

    Billie: Let me try and clean it off.

    She moves closer to him, and unbuttons his shirt. Bo looks at her, and she continues unbuttoning. She takes his shirt off, and they don’t move, and continue looking at each other.

    Shane, Kim, and Jennifer are standing in the living room of the Horton house.

    Jennifer: So, when do we leave?

    Shane: Bo hasn’t called. There’s nothing to worry about right now. I’m going to call Hope, and see if she has any news.

    Jennifer: Ok.

    Shane leaves the living room.

    Jennifer: So, how have you been?

    Kim: I’ve been really good. How about you?

    Jennifer: I’ve been better.

    Kim: I’m sorry about asking about Jack before. I really had no idea.

    Jennifer: Don’t worry about it.

    Jennifer smiles at her.

    Chloe walks into Chez Rouge. She bumps into Vivian.

    Vivian: Oh, Chloe! It’s so good to see you!

    Chloe: Stay the hell away from me.

    Vivian: I get the feeling I did something to offend you.

    Chloe: Offend me! It’s your fault my life has been completely ruined! All because of your need for revenge against Carly!

    Vivian: So, then you should blame Carly! By the way, it looks like her and Daniel aren’t wasting any time.

    Vivian points to a table. Chloe looks as Vivian laughs.

    Vivian: See you later, darling.

    Vivian leaves Chez Rouge.

    Bo moves closer to Billie, and puts his hands around her waist. Billie puts his shirt on the floor, and he kisses her. He stops.

    Bo: Sorry.

    Billie: For what?

    She kisses him, as he takes her shirt off. She takes his belt off, and pulls his pants down. Billie leads him to the bedroom, where he takes the rest of her clothes off. They go on the bed, and make out. Bo goes on top of Billie.

    Billie: Are you sure you want to do this?

    Bo: Are you?

    Billie: Of course I am.

    Bo kisses her.

    March 1983

    Matt’s change of heart would only fuel Drake’s lawsuit against the hospital, this time solely targeting Matt. Drake would suffer a brief moment of clarity when reporter Bill Avery tried to convince him to drop the suit. Drake would seemingly appear to be at a crossroads until a bitter Emerson came upon him. With an axe to grind against Matt, Emerson would encourage Mr. Corbin to continue his lawsuit against the very hospital he worked for! Emerson would underline the importance of knocking Matt down a peg or two, and getting him out of the hospital for good. Motivated by Emerson’s words, Drake and his attorney would present the hospital with an ultimatum; continue on with this lawsuit or fire Matt. Sitting in on the proceedings as owner of the hospital, Mona would vehemently oppose such an offer. Matt, noticing the toll this would take on the hospital, would begin to consider resigning from the hospital. Days later, when Matt had decided to hand in his resignation, Drake would bump into Emerson and the pair would become embroiled in a heated confrontation, with Drake accusing Emerson of using him to do his dirty work. Drake would threaten to tell everyone what Emerson had urged him to do. In the midst of the argument, Drake would collapse right there in the elevator, his airway swollen. Much to Emerson’s shock, the elevator doors would open up to reveal Matt, stunned to see an unconscious Drake on the floor. With the help of Darren Match, an intern, Matt would execute a successful tracheotomy on Drake Corbin, using only an ink pen and plastic straw while in the elevator. Shortly after stabilizing Mr. Corbin, Drake would later be diagnosed with a case of vasculitis. Matt’s curiosity would be piqued when he’d think back to Emerson admitting that he and Drake had been arguing before the man had collapsed. Matt would wonder what the pair could have possibly been arguing about. When Drake regained consciousness, he’d be under the impression that Darren had saved his life, but soon Mr. Corbin would be thrown in for a loop when he’d learn that Matt was the one who he should be thanking. Faced with such a fact, Drake would experience an epiphany of sorts and call off his lawsuit against Dr. Powers. When Emerson paid Drake a visit to make sure the man would remain mum about his involvement in the lawsuit, Drake would keep the doctor on his toes, not certain what he was going to do. Shortly after reuniting with his family, Drake would decide to leave Madison for good. Shortly before departing, Drake would receive a visit from Matt. Drake would offer a sincere apology to the doctor and thank him for saving his life. Not revealing Emerson’s backhanded tactic to get Matt removed from the hospital; Drake would warn Matt to watch his back with Dr. Mitchell.

    Jason and Nola’s daughter fell victim to a rare blood disorder that required a blood transfusion from the girl’s father. When Jessica flat lined and was subsequently brought back to life, it seemed as if Jason and Nola would find comfort in each other’s arms, until Lewis Baker, Nola’s business savvy fiancé walked in. Jason would be rendered speechless upon meeting the man, unable to deal with seeing the woman that he had once and still loved, with another man. As Nola and Jason celebrated the success of the blood transfusion, both would be at odds emotionally about how they felt towards each other.

    One night a former john of Carrie’s made his way into Traci’s apartment and tried to have his way with the young woman. Luckily Tom and Traci would be in the next room, and would hear when Carrie signaled for help by knocking over a lamp. Both Traci and Tom would play hero, ending with Traci threatening to hit the guy in the groins with a baseball bat.

    Tobias and Greta would continue to grow close, while both Natalie and Darren looked down upon their potential pairing. Darren, having pined away for Greta for years, made it known to Tobias that he didn’t think a man like him deserved Greta. Natalie would echo the same exact sentiments, and mentioned the secret past they shared together. Natalie and Tobias had once been engaged. On the eve of their wedding, Natalie, under the pressure of FBI agents, falsely testified that Tobias was a drug trafficker. With all of this weighing heavily on Tobias, he’d push Greta away, scarring her emotionally. Tobias’s home life would not be a walk in the park either; he had to deal with his violent and lush of a father Burton. Tobias would also have to shield his father’s fierce temper from his younger brother, Cyrus, who sympathized with Burton. Weeks later, good news would grace the Fullard household in the form of a job interview for the unemployed Burton. Were things finally looking up for this suffering family?

    Stunned by the fact that a woman of Elizabeth’s age and stature was single, Mona would go against the young woman’s wishes and set her up on a blind date with Madison’s newest arrival, Royce Bryant. Though Elizabeth wasn’t particularly fond of the idea, she’d surprisingly get along with Royce upon their first meeting. However it’d be proven that there existed more to Elizabeth than what met the eye, when she made a cryptic call to someone noting how she had Mona and everyone in town fooled.

    It would take a silver ring, for Emma to remember where she had met Walt Richards from. As a child, Emma’s family took in the son of a homeless man. That same young boy who stayed with Emma for many months kept the same ring that Walt wore on his finger today. When Emma confronted Walt with such a fact, a cornered Walt would confirm that her suspicions were true; his real name was not Walt Richards, but Denny Graves, the son of a coal miner in West Virginia. Walt would reveal that after his father died, he went to work for a coal company and after many years of hard work and dedication he rose up through the ranks. Upon amassing great wealth as President of that very same coal company, he changed his name to Walt Richards. Walt would have Emma swear to secrecy about his less than humble beginning, ashamed that his past might taint himself somehow in Mona’s eyes. Emma would reluctantly agree. From then on, Emma and Walt would reaffirm the friendship they had once forged as kids. Walt found Emma to be breath of fresh air, a break from the life he had submerged himself many years ago as the wealthy Walt Richards. He found Emma’s grounded personality charming, while Mona found their bond troubling.

    Portrayed by: Dorothy Lyman (1981-83); Jill Larson (1989-present)
    Family: Adrian Sword (Son); Tad Gardner Martin (Son); Jenny Gardner (Daughter); Petey Cortlandt (Son); Jamie Martin (Grandson); Jenny Colby Martin (Granddaughter)
    Marriages: Ray Gardner; Hank Purdy; Palmer Cortlandt

    1981: Wild and eccentric Opal Gardner had seen a lot in her life, but nothing could have prepared her for the hell that was marriage to Ray Gardner. Opal grew thick skin, which sometimes caused her to neglect those she loved the most. There was no one she loved more than her children: Jenny and Tad.

    The Martin family in Pine Valley had adopted Tad. Down on her luck, Opal took Jenny to Pine Valley in search of her son. Tad had run away from the Martin home. But. Joe and Ruth Martin still welcomed their son’s family.

    Opal wanted to open her own salon, the Glamorama. In the meantime she needed to augment her dwindling funds. She feigned a heart condition so as to force Jenny into working. She got her a job at a sleazy men’s bar, Foxy’s.

    Opal (Dorothy Lyman) forced Jenny (Kim Delaney) to grow up faster than she should have.

    1982: Opal knew something was amiss at the Miss Teen Pine Valley contest. The judges had all acted very favorably towards Jenny, but Liza Colby was proclaimed the winner. He polled each judge individually, and realized that Jenny was in fact the real winner. Liza had manipulated the contest to make it seem like she had won. Opal warned Liza to stop trying to make life hard for Jenny or she would get what was coming to her.

    Opal was now working for Phoebe Wallingford as her maid. But she was doing more than just cleaning the English Estate. She had begun an affair with Langley Wallingford, Phoebe’s new husband. Opal told Langley their affair was going to cease unless he divorced Phoebe. But, Langley was not about to part ways with his new life, and Phoebe’s money. Opal saw a golden opportunity and began to blackmail her one time lover. She accumulated enough money from Langley to set up the Glamoramma.

    When Jenny left for New York to pursue a modeling career, Opal found herself under staffed. She was surprised to find Ray back on her doorstep. He had managed an early parole. But Opal wanted nothing to do with her ex-husband. Ray was too powerful for Opal and managed to keep her silent while he lived in the Glamoramma’s back room. Opal had no idea he was creating a bomb he intended to kill all the Martins with. His plan went awry when he tried to disarm it in the last minute learning Jenny was in the house too. Opal did not waste any time mourning him.

    Langley (Louis Edmonds) did not realize all that he put on the line when he began his affair with Opal (Lyman).

    1983: Opal and the Martins welcomed Tad home to Pine Valley, but Opal knew something was amiss. She recognized a con artist when she saw one. Opal worked hard to keep one step ahead of Tad and his current plot. This caused much tension between she and Ruth, who took on a more compassionate approach to Tad’s shenanigans. Ruth was content as long as Tad remained enrolled at Pine Valley University. Opal made Tad work for his keep at the Glamoramma.

    Opal met Ralph Purdy through a personal ad. They had a whirlwind courtship and married. Ralph wanted to show Opal the world. Opal packed her bags and left Pine Valley for Europe.

    Opal (Jill Larson) was Tad's (Michael E. Knight) unwanted wedding surprise.

    1989: Opal returned from her around the world adventure just in time for Tad’s wedding to southern belle Dixie Cooney. Opal had left Ralph in the Australian outback and decided that she had an itch to return to Pine Valley. Palmer Corltandt facilitated the return, hoping she would distract Tad long enough so that he could plan a way to turn Dixie against him. Tad wished his mother had kept her distance. At the wedding, she was sure to catch Dixie’s bouquet. Opal was never one to stay single for very long, especially in a town of so many eligible and wealthy men.

    1990: Opal set her sites on Palmer Cortlandt. But, even Opal knew he was out of her league. She was content to date his lackies, including Sean Cudahy and Palmer’s old cellmate, Stan Ulatowski. Daisy Murdoch noticed Opal admiring her ex-husband. She recognized that Opal’s intentions were pure. She approached Opal with a proposition. She would help Opal transform herself into a woman of society. The only catch was that Palmer was to never know of Daisy’s involvement.

    At the University Ball, Opal and Palmer caught eyes from across the room. Opal could not believe it, Palmer was approaching her for a dance. Palmer and Opal’s courtship was brief. She quickly became the newest Mrs. Palmer Cortlandt.

    Palmer wanted Opal to help him break up Tad and Dixie. Opal acquiesced. It did not take much to cause their marriage to crumble. Opal would soon regret her actions. In a startling turn of events, Tad fell victim to a bomb set by Billy Clyde Tuggle. Opal could not bear the loss of another child. She held on to hope for as long as she could. Ruth lashed out against Palmer and made her come to terms with Tad’s death. Dixie and Opal bonded as a result of their loss.

    Everyone was surprised to see Palmer (James Mitchell) and Opal (Larson) actually tie the knot. (Also Pictured: James Patrick Stuart (Will), Michael E. Knight (Tad), Cady McClain (Dixie))

    1991: When Palmer was found poisoned in Cortlandt Manor, Opal became the prime suspect. It did not help that she was found with a vile of the poison, CRS-17. Opal made her plea to Palmer, but it fell on deaf ears. Opal left Cortlandt Manor.

    Stan was revealed to be the real culprit behind the poisoning. Opal refused to return to Palmer after his doubts during the ordeal. But Opal was not ready to move on. Daisy returned to Pine Valley. When it looked like Palmer and Daisy were ready to reunite, Opal admitted her feeling to Palmer. Their marriage was back on track.

    Stan Ulatowski manipulated everyone, including Opal (Larson).

    1992: After the near end to their marriage the year before, Opal was happy to announce that she was pregnant with Palmer’s son. Only, Palmer still believed he was sterile. Opal was insulted when he insisted on a paternity test after the child’s birth. Opal knew she had been faithful to her husband.

    On Christmas Eve, Peter Cortlandt, was born in the middle of the Cortlandt living room. Palmer had to deliver his own son after the roadways shut down because of snow. A DNA test would support Opal’s claim that Peter was in fact Palmer’s son.

    Petey (Mitchell Federan) was the light of Opal's (Larson) life.

    1993: Opal was reunited with Tad. Just as Opal had suspected all along, Tad survived his fall off the bridge. He had been living for two years as an amnesiac in the Napa Valley.

    1994: Palmer lost control of Cortlandt Electronics. So, he and Opal went into business together to make ends meet. Opal’s secret fried chicken recipe made the Cluck-Cluck Chicken Shack a rousing success. Behind Opal’s back, Palmer sold the franchise to buy back Cortlandt Electronics. Opal felt betrayed because the recipe was always meant to stay in the family.

    1995: Opal helped reunite Langley with his daughter, Verla. Opal was able to talk Phoebe down after she thought Verla to be Langley’s new lover.

    Opal learned of Palmer’s infidelity with Janet Green. She kicked him out of Cortlandt Manor and began romancing Seabone Hunkle, Dixie’s father. But Palmer still pined for his wife. Daisy came back to Pine Valley upon hearing of their breakup. Daisy helped Opal realize that she was still very much in love with Palmer. She decided to let Palmer move back in with her at Cortlandt Manor.

    1996: Opal and Palmer took in homosexual teenager Kevin Sheffield after his parents kicked him out of their home. Opal helped him come to grips with his parent’s rejection. Opal confronted Kevin’s mother, Judith Sheffield, who blamed Kevin for her other son, Jason Sheffield’s, incarceration. Judith agreed to take Kevin back in if he attended a psychiatrist. Only, the psychiatrist was convinced that he could turn Kevin straight. Opal offered him the open and accepting home that Kevin never had.

    Although they had seperated, Opal (Larson) still helped Palmer (Mitchell) recover from the Holidays explosion.

    1998: Opal had made many mistakes in her past, but none was greater than Ray Gardner. She tried to get away from him once, starting a new life with Fred Dawson. But, Ray tracked her down and used Tad to get her back. Opal left Fred, but she had a secret. She had given birth to a son. A son she never thought she would see again.

    Adrian Sword was a spy hired to find Palmer’s stash of Nazi artifacts. He took a job as Opal’s chauffeur. Opal knew that she had met Adrian before. When he revealed his father was Fred, Opal knew she had found her son. Belinda Keefer discovered Adrian’s link to Opal’s past. Opal was finally reunited with her son.

    Palmer tried to elude Adrian. He faked his death to protect himself. Opal mourned the loss of her husband with her new son by her side. Tad and Dixie found Palmer alive in New York. Betrayed, Opal kicked Palmer out of Cortlandt Manor. Opal filed for divorce, but she never really stopped caring for him. When Palmer was temporarily blinded in the Holidays explosion, Opal helped him recover.

    1999: Palmer wanted to make Opal pay. He wanted to leave her with nothing. He told The Intruder about how she had abandoned Adrian as a child. Adrian came to Opal’s defense. Adrian was able to pressure Palmer to stop his offensive. Opal was awarded all of Palmer’s assets. She also got primary custody of Petey.

    Opal re-opened the Glamouramma in Cortlandt Manor. To help her with Petey, Opal hired Pigeon Hallow native Becca Tyree to be his babysitter.

    Adrian and Opal attempted a hostile takeover of Cortlandt Electronics. Their efforts were crushed when Erica, Opal’s best friend, voted in Palmer’s favor. She explained to Opal how Palmer had always been there for her, like the father she never had. With time, the friends repaired their broken relationship.

    Opal did not want to admit that she still had feelings for Palmer. This became apparent when Palmer rashly eloped with Vanessa Bennett. Vanessa had weaseled her way into Erica’s life so as to profit from a tell-all book about her life. Opal did not want Palmer to suffer the same fate.

    Opal (Larson) and Erica's (Susan Lucci) relationship was challenged by her bid for Cortlandt Electronics.

    2001: Erica needed Opal to offer Bianca’s new girlfriend, Frankie Stone, a place to stay. In reality, Erica was going to plant drugs in Frankie’s room at the Cortlandt Manor in hopes of driving her out of town. Frankie was found dead in her room and Erica was taken into custody for the murder. Opal learned that Frankie was actually Vanessa’s niece and con artist.

    Gillian Andrassy’s spirit used Opal’s body as vehicle to make contact with Ryan.

    2002: Opal asked a musician named Hank to accompany her to the Crystal Ball. She hoped the move would make Palmer notice her, and it worked. Only, Hank was sincere in his feelings for Opal. Palmer arranged for Hank to go on a world tour, and he begged Opal to accompany him. She admitted she might still have feelings for Palmer and let Hank down gently.

    Opal was at Cortlandt Manor alone when Palmer’s niece, Lanie Rampal, called looking for him. Lanie had devastating news. She was with Dixie moments before her car swerved off an embankment in the Swiss Alps. Dixie was dead.

    Opal was weary of Petey’s new nanny, Kendall Hart. Opal thought Kendall was taking advantage of Palmer’s state of mind since Dixie’s unexpected death.

    EPISODE 12

    "Eight years ago, I worked for this woman here in Port Charles. Her name was Faith Roscoe. I was young, stupid, and out for revenge against my ex and the guy who stole her away from me. Faith knew that and used me to get what she wanted." Zander stopped pacing and looked towards Jack.

    "I see." he replied as he suckled on his coffee.

    "Anyway, Faith wanted something that Nikolas had. A brand new freighter. She wanted to transport her drug shipments with it and Nikolas wasn't about to give her his permission to use it, even though he owed her millions of dollars. Faith told him she'd take it in trade for the money he owed her. This back and forth went on for a few months, and finally Faith was just sick of Nikolas's stalling. She ordered me to remove Nikolas permanently. I went to Wyndamere fully aware of what I was doing and why I was there. I found Emily and Nikolas in the catacombs that run the full dimensions of the mansion. I followed them to the study and waited for the right time to appear. What happened after that wasn't suppose to happen. I had it all planned out, down the last detail, nothing was to go wrong. But something did go wrong, and I have held the guilt ever since."

    Jack listened to his partner re-live that night that had him so shaken.

    "Zander, what happened after you appeared to them?"

    Zander rubbed his hands over his face and stared coldly at Jack. "I don't really remember what Nikolas was shouting at me, it was really all a blur till I heard the shot. She wasn't suppose to get hurt, Jack!" The tone in Zander's voice changed, from calm and cold to painful and agitated.

    Jack got up from the chair and went to him. He stared into Zander's eyes. "What happened?" he said calmly hoping to keep his partner calm enough to tell him the rest.

    "She died in my arms, Jack!" Zander broke down and sobbed as his knees buckled and he went to the floor.

    "You shot her? You're ex?" Jack went to comfort him and went down on his knees to the floor.

    "She was so vibrant, full of life, Jack. I took that all away that night. My stupid mistake took her life!" Zander sobbed uncontrollably as Jack wrapped his arms around his friend.

    "It's okay, Zander. It was a long time ago, you've changed your life for the better now."

    Zander looked up at Jack and wiped the tears from his face. "I shot her Jack and I can't take that back! God I wish I could, but I can't! I have tried so hard to forget but it's been nearly impossible."

    Jack helped Zander to his feet. "First thing you have to do is forgive yourself, Zander. You can't keep this inside of you, it's going to destroy you from the inside out."

    Zander stumbled to the bed and sat down. "Don't you think I know that, Jack! I do! I just don't know what to do anymore, it's eating at me for the past 8 years. I just can't shake it!" Jack didn't know how to help him, he sat and listened to Zander, hoping it would be enough.

    "Tell me about her Zander. What was she like? I assume you love her still, tell me about your life together." Jack didn't know if would help but remember her in life might help him move past not having her in his life now.

    Jack noticed the empty bottle sitting on the nightstand. He got up from the chair and went to throw it away. "Is this how to solve the problem, Zander?"

    Zander looked at the bottle in Jack's hand. "It's the only way I know how, Jack."

    Jack threw the empty bottle of Jack Daniels in the small waste paper basket and continued to question Zander like he was a suspect.

    ""It's been 8 years, Jack. I was heavily into the mob at that time, working for Faith who had connections with Lorenzo Alcazar, a known International criminal ... Jack all this disappeared in a matter of hours. There was no proof of anything. Emily was dead. End of story." Zander was getting annoyed with all of Jack's questions about that night. He just simply wanted to forget that night, he didn't want to re-live it over and over again.So what happened afterwards? I mean, what happened to Nikolas?" "Nikolas?" Zander looked up at Jack who genuinely seemed concerned for him.

    "Yeah, Zander. Nikolas. Is he still living here in Port Charles? What happened between the two of you? I mean, you obviously didn't spend any time in jail for this. Care to tell me how you got out of it?"

    Zander stood up from the floor and walked towards the bed. He sat down on the edge and held his head in his hands.

    "Nikolas just wanted it all to go away. He didn't want the media to have field day with the incident and as far as he was concerned he knew I didn't do it on purpose. He was upset and quite angry with me, but mostly at himself for allowing it to happen, cause he could of stopped it before it happened. He blamed himself for it more so then he did me for pulling the trigger. As far as I know he moved back to Greece shortly after the funeral. I wasn't charged with anything, with Nikolas gone and not willing to press charges or to say what happened in that room that night, there was really nothing that could be done to me or to anyone else."

    Jack stepped closer and sat down on the chair, he still had concerns for his partner, this was alot to bear for someone, especially for Zander. "What about her family? No one ever questioned it?"

    Zander looked up at Jack. "Sure there were questions, plenty of them. But Nikolas ran and so did I, there was really no one else to ask. Jack, this incident just disappeared. For all who knew about it, well, they are either gone from this world or they have disappeared so no one can find them."

    Jack raised an eyebrow.

    "Look, I was heavily into the mob at that time, working for Faith who had connections with Lorenzo Alcazar, a known International criminal ... Jack all this disappeared in a matter of hours. There was no proof of anything. Emily was dead. End of story." Zander was getting annoyed with all of Jack's questions about that night. He just simply wanted to forget that night, he didn't want to re-live it over and over again."Okay. end of story." Jack got up off the chair and threw Zander his clothes that laid across the back. "Here, let's go get some breakfast. I think you need it." Zander caught the clothes thrown at him and looked at Jack.

    "Sure, as long as we can put your interrogation about that night to rest?" Jack started to walk towards the door and turned to look back at Zander.

    "Okay, no more questions. Just get dressed, I'll meet you downstairs in 10 minutes." Jack left Zander alone in the room and closed the door behind him.

    Zander fell back on the bed and sighed heavily. He rubbed his hands over vigorously, he couldn't believe this was happening to him. He decided to throw himself into the new case they were working on, maybe taking his mind off of that night would help it go away for good.

    After Tad pulled the car into the driveway, at there new house The Martin House (1219 Hillcrest Drive) and parked before coming around and opening her door, Dixie misted up a bit at the sight of the house. Walking up to the entrance, she smiled when Tad got the keys out and unlocked the door, but when he walked into the foyer leaving her to follow, she stood pouting on the porch, arms crossed.

    "Hey..aren't you forgetting something?" - Dixie.

    "Oh yeah, sorry about baby" - Tad.

    Tad smiled and laughed a bit. He then got Dixie, closed the car door and picked up Dixie, carrying her into their new house and puts her down.

    "Well here we are Dixie, OUR new home. Me,ma, and the girls moved in weeks ago so we got everything settled. Lets go into the kitchen and make dinner. I'll do the cesar salad with sweet dressing, you can do the lausugana"- Tad.

    "Alright..sounds good.." - Dixie.

    Tad and Dixie walked into the kitchen. Dixie checked the fridge, pantry and cupboards but frowned.

    "Hmmm..well unless you wanna make a run to the store, doesn't seem like my main course is gonna fly tonight..we could do just, plain old spaghetti if you want?" - Dixie.

    "That would be a great idea but now may not be a good time since the girls are coming home" - Dixie.

    "Now, I don't see any canned sauce but..oooh hey I got it!" - Dixie.

    "What is it?" - Tad.

    Cutting through the kitchen to the den and then the back door, Dixie went in the yard and noticed Joe's vegetable garden was still intact

    "Ha, perfect..Turns out your dad's garden was pretty well kept all this time. Looks like we got a pretty main ingredient anyway..." - Dixie.

    "Well let's get cooking Dixie. I'm liking how this'll turn out" - Tad.

    Smiling she tossed the tomato in the air gently and caught it, before she went and rinsed it in the sink and afterward, diced it.

    "How you coming with your dish though, honey?" - Dixie.

    "My dish is coming along well. Just putting in the curtons, this is gonna taste good Dixie!And the icing on the salad!Yum yum!"

    Tad spread the dressing all over the salad and curtons. He grabbed the orange and white cheese, including the slicer just slicing the cheese over the salad, curtons and dressing.

    "Well..take that gorgeous dish of your's and toss it in the fridge Master Chef Martin. This sauce isn't completely finished yet." - Dixie.

    She said, and put it on low heat and stirred it a bit before walking away from the stove and over to Tad, wrapping her arms around him from behind.

    "Mmm..you know though who's even more delicious than that salad though.." - Dixie.

    "Tell me...what is it?" - Tad.

    She purred, standing on her tiptoes to whisper and nip at his ear a bit.

    "Care to work up an appetite before dinner...?" - Dixe.

    "Mmmmm..... sure, I love to give you an appitite" - Tad.

    Tad picks up Dixie and carry's her upstairs while Dixie kisses him on the neck.Once they're in the bedroom, Tad puts Dixie down on the bed, then closes the door.

    "This is my favorite part" - Tad.

    Taking him by surprise long enough to get her sweater off, leaving her in just her tank top and jeans. Smirking at him she settled above him before she kissed his lips, down his jaw until she reached his neck. Massaging his shoulders and chest all the while.

    "Mmmm..this is my favorite part.." - Dixie.

    She purred as she dragged her lips down his stomach, while her hands wandered down to his belt buckle and she easily removed his pants.

    "Oh my Dixie, you're a real pro at all this but I am too" - Tad.

    Dixie lays down as Tad slowly takes off her tank top and jeans, then he takes off his shorts which makes Dixie smile with pleasure.

    "Oh I know it.." - Dixie.

    Dixie purred, but when he settled above her, she got a sly look on her face and flipped him back. Nipping at his chest and kissing his abs, her hands massaged lower and lower still til she heard a groan that just egged her on.

    "Shhh...." - Dixie.

    "I'm all yours" - Tad.

    "Mmmm..perfect.." - Dixie.

    Dixie teased, coming back up and giving Tad a fiery kiss on the lips before working her way down his frame. Nipping, tasting and teasing him in all the spots she'd spent years discovering, she knew she was driving him mad. Finally though he reached for her and she knew he wanted to kick things into a higher gear. Settling above him they melted into eachother. But when he started moving her head fell back and she sighed. He was teasing her but she needed more.

    "Ohh, oh Tad...faster.." - Dixie.

    "Oh Dixie....ah......" - Tad.

    "Yes..right there..oh!" - Dixie

    Dixie exclaimed. Using all her strength she pulled Tad up, and wrapping her legs around him they shared a fiery kiss. Still rocking with eachother, her nails dug into his shoulder before she pulled back to breathe, wanting to look in his eyes.

    "With me..." - Dixie.

    Sweated up with her hair hanging damp at her shoulders, when he sped up she groaned under the kiss, her legs in a vice grip around him as they were closing in on eachother.

    "Yes..so close.." - Dixie.

    She nodded, before taking his lips and repeating his name, egging in on. Then finally they both felt the heat and her head fell back.

    "Oh God, yes, yes!" - Dixie.

    Dixie exclaimed. But it took hearing her name before the stars left her eyes and she caught some air. After they both fell back against the pillows, they untangled and she lay draped over him, completely spent.

    "Mmmm..that was good..." - Dixie.

    "That was good Dixie....wow.....you're a freak you know that, but in a good way. You wanted this so bad and we did it.....just loving" - Tad.

    "Well..what's not to want, you know? You're not so bad yourself." - Dixie.

    Tad and Dixie got up, changed clothes, freshened up and headed to the kitchen, finishing up on dinner but then heard a knock on the door. Dixie stayed back in the kitchen, wanting him to let them in.

    Tad walked over to the door and opened it. It was Kathy,Jenny and Opal.

    "Hey you guys come on in!" - Tad.

    "Is she here daddy!? Is momma here!?" - Kathy.

    "You wanna know if she's here?" - Tad.

    The girls both nod their heads.

    "Yes!" - Jenny.

    "Well the two of you are in for the greatest luck in your life" - Opal.

    "Close your eyes"

    The two of them close their eyes.

    "You girls ready!?" - Opal.

    "Here she comes!" - Tad.

    Jenny and Kathy open their eyes and see Dixie!Jenny runs over and hugs her.Stroking Jenny's hair Dixie glanced up and got teary eyed all the more when she saw Kathy looking on nervously. Opal, catching sight of this, walked up and bent over to Jenny's level.

    "C'mon peanut..lets' go see what's cookin huh?" - Opal.

    She offered, but Jenny pouted and snuggled closer to Dixie, not wanting to move from her spot.

    "Aw go on sweetie..don't worry I'm not going anyplace.I promise..I'll even seal it with this.. Eskimo kiss!" - Dixie.

    Giggling she leaned closer and budded her nose with Jenny's.Convinced enough to let Opal take her to the kitchen, leaving her and Tad alone with Kathy. Dixie smiled tearfully, as Kathy nervously approached her, sitting near her on the rug.

    "Hi sunshine.." - Dixie.

    "Hi...so, you..you're my momma?" - Kathy.

    "Yeah..I am...My sweet girl..." - Dixie.

    She sighed, stroking her hair as she memorized her daughter's face, but spotted a tear running down her cheek.Wiping it away she moved closer, concerned.

    "What is it baby..?" - Dixie.

    "Nothing I..I just.." - Kathy.

    "C'mere sweetie.." - Dixie.

    She said softly, before Kathy quickly climbed onto her lap, wrapping her arms around her neck.

    "Shhhh..it's okay, I'm here Katie..it's alright.." - Dixie.

    Dixie choked out, holding her daughter close as she rubbed her back.

    "I love you Momma.." - Kathy.

    Kathy sniffled, as Dixie finally broke, smiling through her tears.

    "I love you too sunshine, more than the stars and the moon." - Dixie.

    "Hey, it's alright swetheart, mommy and I are, the two of us are here with you for the rest of the days of our lives" -Tad.

    "You mean that daddy?" - Kathy.

    "Yes sunshine, together forever" - Tad.

    "Kathy..listen baby, if you have..any questions you wanna ask me or, things you wanna talk about, I want you to know you can always talk to me, okay? About anything." - Dixie.

    "Well..maybe there's some stuff but..do we have to talk about it now? I..I'm kinda hungry." - Kathy.

    "Well good, so am I" - Dixie.

    Tad, Dixie, Jenny, Kathy and Opal all ate dinner and desert. After Tad and Dixie finished eating with the girls and watched a movie with them, finally after a few choruses of You Are My Sunshine, they were both asleep upstairs including Opal. Cuddling up beside Tad on the couch, Dixie smiled at her husband.

    "Sweetie, I just wanted to say thanks. You gave me a second chance, you brought me back, and we've had a lot of fun. I just..want you to know I'll be around, whenever you, really need me. I'll find a way back to you." - Dixie.

    She promised, before curling up next to him and closing her eyes, in need of a good nights sleep.

  22. Hey everyone...

    As Nancy Hughes might have said on ATWT before CBS broke in with a news bulletin, "I gave it a great deal of thought..."

    I have decided to end production of Somerset on SON after 44 episodes. However, that is not the end of the serial as you knew it.

    I want to be careful how I say this, but next month Somerset can be seen on "another network", as they call it. What I am going to do is promote the show a bit better, keep up with the episodes, but more importantly I will relaunch the show from Episode 1 at its new location so viewers who have not seen it can get caught up.

    For those who think I may have run out of ideas, hardly. I actually have enough material for two years' worth of story. I'm looking forward to relaunching the show at its new site, and some of you post at it so you may know what it is.

    I can't thank Errol, Toups and company enough for allowing me to have Somerset at SON for its start. I'll still be posting here, so I'm not going anywhere.

    Take care.

  23. I am tying up some storylines in one episode, and doing it without dialogue. It was going to be stretched out into a week, but it's not feasable.

    ~Brook Lyn arrives and is shocked to find out that she has a half brother. Ned never tol her about James, which angers her.

    ~Luke is angry that there is no progress being made in the hunt for Helena and Sam. He feels that Robert is spending too much time with Tracy, who are continuing with their affair. To counter this and to get Robert back on track, Luke tells Tracy about the bet. Hell hath no fury than Tracy Quartermaine scorned!

    TUNE IN AFTER THE HIATUS. We Will be back in June!

  24. as_the_world_turns.jpg


    Carter grabs a faint Lisa before she falls do the ground. Scott rushes over to a table nearby and pulls out a chair while Carter drags Lisa to the chair, seating her.

    Lisa: (faint) Scott? Is it really you?

    Scott: Yes, Mom.

    Carter comes back to them with a glass of water. He hands it to Scott, who is now kneeled next to his mother. He holds the glass while Lisa takes a sip.

    Scott: You all right?

    Lisa: I will be . . . (strokes his face gently) So glad to see you . . .

    Lisa then strikes her son across the face. Scott holds his face, which stings. Carter is stunned. Lisa jumps up and hovers over her son.

    Lisa: How dare you! How dare you do this to me!

    On Scott totally shocked,

    CUT TO


    Henry, with a chef hat and apron that reads "I rub my meat for two mins," dances around the kitchen while the pots of the stove create a slight fog from the steam.

    Henry: (singing) Pour it up! Pour it up! That's how we ball out! . . . Strips clubs and dollar bills--

    He is abruptly interrupted by a knock at the door. Aggravated, Henry opens the door to reveal his younger sister, CLARK COLEMAN.

    Henry is speechless.

    Clark: (distraught) I need your help.

    On Henry worried

    CUT TO


    Mo and Casey sit on the sofa making out. Tom then barges in slamming the door. The two break apart like two teens that have been caught in the act. As the rearrange their clothes:

    Tom: Where is your mother?!

    Casey: She's at the station. What's wrong?

    Tom: Emily!

    Casey: What now?

    Tom tosses the paper at Casey before he storms up stairs. Casey unballs the paper to see the headline (from last episode) featuring Tom, Carter, and Scott.

    On Casey cringing,



    FADE IN:


    Casey kisses Mo (before she leaves) and closes the door behind her. Tom comes down the stairs, undoing his tie and tossing it to the side.

    Casey: You sure you're fine?

    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.

    Tom: I do but--

    Casey: Not "buts." Who cares that you left mid office almost fifteen years ago? That was then. This is now.

    Margo rushes in breathing heavily.

    Margo: Oh honey! There you are. (rushes over and kisses Tom) I went by the campaign office and Bonnie told me everything. (calming down) You OK?

    Tom: Not really.

    Margo: Don't worry, honey. We'll figure this out--me, you, Bonnie, Lisa--

    Tom jumps up from the sofa

    Tom: Mom! I gotta go see her.

    Margo: We're coming with you.

    On a shot of the Hughes rushing out,

    CUT TO


    Henry and Clark are now seated at a table. We enter mid-convo. Henry is trying to pry some info out of her.

    Clark: Henry, can you stop!

    Henry: No! You just come beating down my door and you want me to stop?

    Clark: Yes.

    Henry: We haven't heard from you in years! Maddie, me, Bernadette--

    Clark: I'm fine. (swiping hair out of face) Can't you tell?

    Henry: Not really but I'll drop it for now . . .

    Clark: I just need a place to stay for a few nights--

    Henry: What? Hold on--you just come in here and expect to provide you a haven when you can't tell me where the heck you've been for the past five years?! Really, Clark?

    On Clark moaning,

    CUT TO


    Picking up where we left off of Lisa slapping Scott, and both he and Carter stunned:

    Scott: What was that for!

    Lisa: For not picking up the phone and calling me! For not visiting me! Your brother--

    Scott: Oh I've seen ole' Tom already.

    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.

    Scott: Exactly.

    Lisa: (stewing) Oh OK . . . So Tom knew you were here?

    Scott: Yes. I've been here since Christmas.

    Lisa: What!

    Tom, Margo, & Casey come rushing in and up to Lisa, Carter, & Scott.

    Tom: Mom--

    Lisa pops him across the face.

    Lisa: How could you! (to both of her boys) How could both of you! . . . (enraged, flailing around) How could all of you!

    Casey and Margo step back, not wanting to feel the wrath of Lisa.

    On Tom holding his face, now stunned too.
