ANOTHER WORLD 228 The Love/Hudsons celebrate a new birth

The Love/Hudsons celebrate a new birth
Written by:  C. Nathaniel Richardson
Consultants:  Alex Beeby, ML Cooks, Nick Monarco, DRW50
John and Brianna go into the staff locker room.
John:  You’re a real pro in there.
Brianna:  I’ve delivered babies before.  It’s always a joy to see the families happy.  The mother having a baby; the father right there with her.  Must be nice.
John:  I wasn’t there when Gregory was born.  Sharlene gave birth to our son in a shed.
Brianna:  Wow.  
John:  Taylor Benson delivered him actually after she...never mind.
Brianna:  No tell me.  What did Taylor Benson do?  
John:  I...don’t really wanna get into that.
Brianna:  Oh um.  Ok.  
Brianna starts feeling around in her pockets.
John:  Looks like you lost something.
Brianna:  Yeah I...can’t find my badge.  Maybe I dropped it somewhere.
John:  Well go to a computer and log in.  If someone tries to use it, it will tell you where it was scanned.  Hopefully someone will return it.
Tyrone wheels Marley in a wheelchair to the nursery.  They look through the glass at their baby in a bassinet labeled “Roman Montgomery” on the outside.  Donna, Michael and Vicky join them.
Marley:  Look at him Tyrone.  He’s so tiny.  So innocent.
Tyrone:  Our son.
Donna looks at Michael.
Donna:  And our grandson.
Marley:  Have you called your mother?
Tyrone:  She and Etta Mae are on their way.
Marley:  He’s a miracle.  I thought I was never gonna be able to have children.  I’m gonna shower all the love I have on him.
Tyrone:  He looks like a sports enthusiast.
Marley:  We will love our son whatever he wants to be.
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:
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.
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.






A new life has begun

Consultants:  A. Washington-Beeby, ML Cooks, Nick Monarco, and DRW50



Cass, Frankie, Charlie and Maggie walk in.  Frankie escorts Maggie to the couch.

Maggie:  Oh God I feel groggy.

Frankie:  Come on sit down.  I’ll get you some tea.

As Frankie goes to the kitchen, Charlie sits next to Maggie.

Charlie:  Whoever did this must have given you a huge dosage.

Maggie:  Yeah.  I wonder who would be after me.

Meanwhile in the kitchen, Cass confers with Frankie.

Frankie:  Cass I don’t know.

Cass:  Don’t know about what?

Frankie:  This whole evening has just been so weird.  Everything.  Maggie’s car doors wouldn’t lock from the inside.  You and Christy.  I can’t believe she…

Cass:  We’ll deal with that okay.

Frankie:  I mean all I need now is to find out what happened at the Corys.  Who knows what went on down there?



Joy secretly watches Marley on her cell phone through the camera installed outside of their house.

Joy:  What is she doing?

Joy watches her cell phone intently as Vicky spies her from a short distance.



Tyrone walks in and finds Marley doing something.

Tyrone:  Hey hey what are you doing?

Marley:  I’m dusting the table.  It started to feel stuffy in here.

Tyrone:  But you’re up…and moving.  And you?  Dusting a table?

Marley:  Suddenly I got this…burst.  I just decided to start cleaning the house.

Tyrone:  Um you know what that means right?

Marley:  That I have extra energy?

Tyrone:  That the baby is ready.

Marley:  Ready for what?

Tyrone:  Come on.  We need to go to the hosp….

Tyrone and Marley look down and see a wet spot on the floor, and Marley grabs her stomach in pain.

Marley:  Oh.  Water’s broken.

Tyrone:  It’s time.  It’s time!  Come on!


Amanda comes downstairs and approaches Allen.

Allen:  I’m sorry about what happened here.

Amanda:  Thank you.  I’m just concerned about my mother.

Allen:  Well Felicia and Paulina are out there with her now.

Amanda:  I’m gonna go check on her.

KC walks up to them.

KC:  So you’re going out with Carl’s daughter in law?

Allen:  Yeah she’s concerned about her mother.

KC:  This is so sad.

Allen:  Yeah.  We need some good news.

Suddenly Allen gets a call on his cell phone from Tyrone with Marley moaning in labor pain.

Allen:  Hey Tyrone what’s up?

Tyrone:  Is Vicky there?

Allen:  Yeah what’s going on?  Oh I can hear.

Tyrone:  Yeah meet us at the hospital.  Marley’s in labor.

Allen:  Whoa!  Whoa!  I’ll tell everyone.

KC:  What happened?

Allen:  I gotta go tell Vicky and Donna.

Donna walks up to them.

Donna:  Tell me what?

Allen:  Tyrone just called.

Donna:  Is it Marley?  Is everything okay?

Allen:  It’s more than okay.  She’s having the baby.

Donna:  Oh!  Oh we’ve gotta go!  I’ll tell the others.

Allen:  I’ll meet you there.





Frankie:  Did Christy tell you she kidnapped Maggie?

Cass:  She had to have known where Maggie was.

Frankie looks over at Maggie, who is sitting with Charlie on the couch.

Frankie:  I dunno Cass.

Cass:  What do you mean you don’t know?  Christy clearly isn’t the changed person you thought she was.

Frankie:  Maggie was kidnapped before and she wasn’t exactly cooperative in being rescued.  How do you know she didn’t do it again?

Cass:  Are you serious?  Why would she even do that this time?

Frankie:  I don’t know.  That’s a question we’d have to ask her.

Cass:  I can’t believe you’re even bringing this up.

Frankie:  I’m not saying that’s what Maggie did, but you have to consider the possibility.

Cass:  That’s ridiculous.  Christy needed leverage to get what she wanted, and Maggie was it.

Frankie takes the tea tray over to Maggie and gently places it on the coffee table.

Frankie:  This should help you feel better.

Maggie:  Thank you Frankie.

Frankie:  So you don’t remember anything about the kidnapping?

Maggie:  I remember leaving here, getting in my car, then waking up in the hospital.  That’s all.

Charlie:  Nothing at all you can recall?

Maggie:  No Charlie I can’t.

Frankie:  Any distinct scents or smells or…

Maggie:  Why do I get the feeling you’re trying to say something else?

Frankie:  I’m just asking…

Cass:  She thinks you staged it.

Frankie:  Cass!

Cass:  She thinks you did the same thing you did before.

Maggie:  Really?  You mean when my mom hired Rafael to kidnap me?

Frankie:  Maggie I’m just…

Maggie:  You got it wrong.  I’m not that person anymore!  Wow you’re amazing!

Maggie gets up and goes to her room in the back.

Frankie:  Maggie?

Cass:  Look what you’ve done.

Frankie:  I didn’t do anything wrong.

Cass:  She just went through a terrible ordeal and you bring up the past!  I’ll go see if she’s okay.

Charlie:  Let him calm down.  You know how dad gets.  

Charlie gets a phone call on her cell phone.

Charlie:  Hey babe.  Where are you?  Well the hospital’s not gonna go outta business anytime soon.  Is everything okay?  Wow okay.  That’s great news!  I’ll be right there.

Frankie:  Was that Kirkland?

Charlie:  Yeah.  Marley’s in labor.



Michael, Donna, Vicky, Bridget, Michele, Steven, Joy, Kirkland, Allen and KC are in the waiting area.  Steven is in a corner with Joy.

Steven:  Are you okay?

Joy:  I’m fine.

Steven:  I wasn’t sure.  My mom can be a handful.

Joy:  She doesn’t intimidate me.

Steven:  Good, because I told her how I felt about you.

Joy:  You did?

Steven:  Of course I did.  It’s time she accepted you.

Joy:  I..had no idea that Donna was your grandmother.  This really is a small town.

Steven:  Yeah.  That’s grandma.


In another corner, Vicky is with Michele.

Vicky:  Are you gonna be okay honey?

Michele:  I’m good mom.  

Vicky:  You and Bridget fighting.  I know she started it.  She started this whole thing.

Michele:  I don’t wanna think about that.  I don’t wanna think about you and dad getting a divorce.  

Vicky straddles Michele’s hair.

Vicky:  You’re right.  Your Aunt Marley is having a baby.  Something good’s gonna come out of tonight.




Kirkland:  I just called my wife.  She’s on her way.  Kid what’s up with you and Michele?

Bridget:  I don’t wanna talk about that.

KC:  You guys are sisters though.  Why would you be fighting?

Bridget:  Look it’s a long story and I really don’t feel like getting into it.

Bridget walks away.

Allen:  Let’s just respect her wishes okay.  A lot has happened tonight.

KC:  I feel so bad for Rachel, Cory, Elizabeth.  They lost Carl.

Allen:  It’s the cycle of life you know.  Some things just aren’t fair.

Kirkland:  One life ends, another one begins.


Vicky approaches Steven and Joy.

Vicky:  Steven you have really lost your mind haven’t you?

Steven:  Mom.

Vicky:  No she shouldn’t be here.  Tyrone and Marley might not even be having a baby because of her.

Steven:  I’m not gonna allow you to talk about her like that.  

Vicky:  I saw you looking at your cell phone earlier at the Corys.  Whatever it was it seemed quite interesting...

Joy:  You know what Steven.  Your mom’s right.  Maybe I should go.

Steven:  Joy don’t leave.  I want you here with me.

Joy:  It’s okay.  I don’t mean to cause any trouble.  I’ll text you when I get home.

Steven:  Okay.

Joy walks out of the waiting area and Steven turns to Vicky.

Steven:  What the hell is wrong with you?

Vicky:  I can’t believe you’re getting involved with her.  She’s going to hurt you.

Steven:  The only person hurting me is you.

Vicky:  I am your mother, and I’m not gonna sit here and watch her tear your life like she did Marley and Tyrone.

Steven:  I’m gonna call grandma Rachel and see how she’s doing.


In another corner, Donna is with Michael.

Donna:  You know Michael...this is bittersweet.  Marley’s giving birth, and she’s got her family here.  Nobody waiting to separate her from her child like my father did to me.

Michael:  We can’t dwell on the past now.  Marley knows that we’re all here for her.  We’re gonna make sure that our grandson is protected.

Donna:  Do you think Reginald is gonna try to pull something?

Michael:  Wouldn’t put it past him.  He tried to kidnap Bridget.  I’ve got people watching.  Nothing’s gonna happen to Marley or the baby.

John walks up to them in scrubs, a hairpiece and a mask.

Donna:  John where’s Marley?

John:  Follow me.  I’m headed there now.

They all follow John.  John goes into the delivery room to join Brianna Jameson and the other nurses.  


Tyrone, also in scrubs, clenches Marley’s hand tightly as she is in intense pain.

John:  He’s coming.

Marley:  Duh! Ahhhhhh!  This hurts!

Brianna:  Remember your Lamaze classes.  Short breaths okay.  

Brianna coaches Marley through the short breaths as John looks for the baby.

Tyrone:  John what is it?

John:  I see the head!  He’s coming!  I’m gonna need a push.

    Aftermath of a Carl’s death

    Consultants:  A. Washington-Beeby, ML Cooks, Nick Monarco, and DRW50



    Dr. Russ Matthews blogentry-14971-0-47437500-1434503081_this off in a corner on his cell phone.blogentry-14971-0-92688800-1432773744_th

    Russ:  Iris it’s me.

    Iris:  Hey how are you?

    Russ:  I dunno.  

    Iris:  Is everything alright?

    Russ:  No.  I can’t say it is.

    Iris:  You’re at the Corys right?

    Russ:  Yeah.

    Iris:  What happened?

    Russ:  Carl just passed away.


    Three of Carl’s surviving children (Cory,blogentry-14971-0-98764900-1434503287_th Elizabeth,blogentry-14971-0-17366900-1434503267_th and Devin Lucasblogentry-14971-0-70315400-1435711873_th) all emerge from the small crowd.

    Elizabeth:  Daddy.  Daddy!

    She runs up to Carl and Rachel.  Rachelblogentry-14971-0-26047800-1434503136_th is holding her husband still, who has just passed away.

    Elizabeth:  Do something mom!  Call 9-1-1.  Somebody call 9-1-1!  Daddy!  Daddy wake up!

    Cory:  Lizzie…

    Elizabeth:  How could you do this?  How could you let him die?

    Devin gets Elizabeth.

    Devin (with tears in his eyes): He’s gone Elizabeth.  Dad is dead.

    Elizabeth:  Don’t say that!  Don’t you ever say something like that!  Nooo..noooooo!

    Elizabeth breaks down and Devin hugs his sister tightly..

    The paramedics arrive at the gazebo with a gurney.

    Paramedic #1:  We’ve come to get Mr. Hutchins.

    Elizabeth:  No!  No you’re not taking my daddy!

    Cory:  Let them do their jobs Lizzie.

    Elizabeth:  No!  

    Cory holds Elizabeth back as Rachel watches in sadness.  The paramedics put Carl’s body on the gurney and cover it with a sheet.  Elizabeth, in tears, breaks free of Cory’s hold, runs to the gurney, and lifts the sheet up to see Carl’s face.

    Rachel:  Elizabeth don’t do this.

    Elizabeth:  No.  This isn’t happening.  Daddy...don’t go.  Daddy!

    Rachel:  They have to take him honey.

    Rachel goes and embraces Elizabeth as the paramedics wheel Carl out of the gazebo.


    Gregoryblogentry-14971-0-63749100-1430698307_th and Lindsayblogentry-14971-0-65421400-1435108205_th watch as all unfolded.  Gregory holds her.

    Lindsay:  My God this is so sad.

    Gregory:  I feel so bad for them.  They lost their dad.  I don’t know what I’d do if I lost mine.

    Lindsay:  Don’t talk like that.  You’re not gonna lose your father.

    Meanwhile, Russ approaches Johnblogentry-14971-0-82212400-1435108113_th and Sharleneblogentry-14971-0-08650600-1435108149_th

    John:  So you were treating him?

    Russ:  I was just trying to make him comfortable.  There was nothing we could do about the tumor.

    Sharlene:  I’m sure Rachel appreciates it…and Carl.  Those poor kids.  They’re too young to lose their father, and Frankie.  Frankie was just getting to know him, and it’s all just cut short.  This just isn’t fair.

    John rubs Sharlene shoulders.

    John:  This reminds me of when we thought we lost you.  I wouldn’t want anyone to go through this.

    Sharlene:  I survived, but Carl didn’t.


    OUTSIDE, Mattblogentry-14971-0-53505500-1432774040_th and Amanda blogentry-14971-0-15128800-1432774016_thare with Rachel in the gazebo.

    Matt:  Mom.  Do you need anything?

    Rachel:  No honey I…I just want to sit out here for a minute.

    Amanda:  We’ll be inside.

    Rachel:  Will you check on Cory and Elizabeth for me?

    Amanda:  Okay.

    Matt and Amanda go inside, as Feliciablogentry-14971-0-01720100-1433387859_th comes out and sits on Rachel’s right on the gazebo bench, and Paulinablogentry-14971-0-18283300-1432080997_th comes out and sits on Rachel’s left.  Paulina clenches Rachel’s left hand, and Felicia clenches Rachel’s right hand.  



    PART 2

    Lindsay:  I’m gonna get something out of my car.  I’ll be back.

    Gregory:  Okay.


    Meanwhile, out the front door, Devin Lucas is with Lorna pacing back and forth.

    Lorna:  Are you gonna be okay son?

    Devin Lucas:  Yeah…I just wanna be out here for a minute.

    Lorna:  I’ll…go see about mom.

    Lorna goes in, and Devin Lucas paces faster, and breaks down crying.  Lindsay opens the front door and sees Devin Lucas, whose back is turned to the front door.  He turns around and sees Lindsay, and quickly wipes his tear soaked face.

    Lindsay:  I’m…I’m sorry about your dad.

    Devin Lucas:  What did you come out here for?

    Lindsay:  I was going to my car to get something.

    Devin Lucas:  Don’t let me stop you.

    Devin goes inside as Lindsay looks at him.



    Cory sits on his bed.  Amanda  walks in and sits next to him.  The two are silent and Amanda breaks it.

    Amanda:  You know, for what it’s worth I know what you’re going through.

    Cory:  I don’t...know what to feel.  It’s almost like I don’t feel anything.  Shouldn’t I feel something?

    Amanda:  You’re in shock.  We all are.  

    Cory:  I’ve been expecting this.  Dad told us he was dying, and now he’s gone.

    Amanda:  You’re a strong kid.  And we’re gonna need to band together for mom.


    Matt knocks on Elizabeth’s door.  Elizabeth sits in a chair next to the bed and Matt sits on the bed.

    Elizabeth:  Did mom send you?

    Matt:  No.  I know what it’s like to lose a dad though.   You should take comfort in the fact that Carl got to spend his last days with you, Cory and Devin Lucas.

    Elizabeth:  I’m sorry that you weren’t able to do that.

    Matt:  Hold on to those memories.  My dad adopted me and raised me as his own.  It still hurts sometimes.

    Elizabeth:  Is it gonna feel like this all the time?  Is it always gonna be this painful?

    Matt:  I know you don’t believe it now but it gets easier.  You’ll start to do what your dad would want you to do.  I don’t think Carl wants you to be sad forever.  

    Elizabeth:  I...shouldn’t have lashed out at mom like that.

    Matt:  I’m sure she understands. She’s lost another husband.  She’s gonna need us.


    Russ is on his cell phone with Iris.

    Russ:  I know there was no love lost between you and Carl so I don’t expect you to shed any tears.

    Iris:  Still it’s...devastating for his children...and Rachel.

    Russ walks to the gazebo and see Rachel with Paulina and Felicia.

    Russ:  Rachel’s lost Mac and now Carl.  She’s gotta be so devastated.  Looks like she’s in good hands though.


    Rachel:  Felicia.  How did you deal with it?  Twice.

    Felicia:  I really couldn’t tell you.  Zane and Lucas.  This is different for you than it was for me.  Both of my husbands were shot to death.  You got to spend your last moments with your husband at home.  Hold on to that.

    Rachel:  Paulina?

    Paulina:  I’ve learned to live without Joe.  Every time I see Dante, I smile, and I’m happy, and proud, but a part of me still gets sad, because I see his father.  I start remembering our lives together.  I know I don’t have to tell you how to deal with that right.

    Rachel:  No.  This is helping.  I thought I would never find love after Mac died, but I did.   Carl pursued me.  I resisted, and resisted…

    Felicia:  So did we.

    Rachel:  Carl and I had our ups and downs, but we had a beautiful life together.

    Paulina:  You have two wonderful children.

    Felicia:  Carl lives on in them, and in my grandson.  

    Paulina:  Carl was like the father I never had.  His impact will always be felt in all of us.  We will definitely miss him.

    Felicia and Paulina each lean on Rachel’s shoulders as they look up at the sky.





    This episode is dedicated in loving memory to Charles Keatingblogentry-14971-0-24371400-1434503111_th, who portrayed Carl Hutchins.

    Cass tells Frankie about Christy’s scheme; Carl dies…



    Cass, Frankie and Charlie are at Maggie’s bedside as she has awakened.  Brianna Jameson, who kidnapped Maggie and drugged her, is watching through the rectangular glass in the door.

    Cass:  Can you try to recall some of the events?

    Maggie: Well I...left your house, got in my car, and I remember feeling a stick in my neck.  Next thing you know I...woke up here.  I’m sorry.

    Frankie:  So you can’t remember who did this to you?

    Maggie:  No.  I’m sorry I...I can’t.

    Charlie:  I’m sure it’ll come to you at some point.

    Frankie:  Well we can’t tell the police anything.  

    Charlie:  Why not?

    Frankie:  She can’t recall any of the events that happened.

    Brianna walks in.

    Brianna:  Hi.  I just wanted to check on the patient.  See how she was doing.  Dr. Winthrop.  Are you feeling any pain?  Dizziness?  

    Maggie:  I feel a little groggy, but other than that I’m fine.

    Brianna:  Well we need to take some vitals if you’ll excuse me.

    Cass:  We’ll be right outside.



    Cass, Frankie and Charlie commiserate.

    Frankie:  Something is off about this whole thing.  I mean she was coming to the party and she disappears for a few hours.

    Charlie:  Yeah it doesn’t sound good.

    Frankie:  I hope it isn’t one of her schemes.

    Charlie:  Maggie’s claimed that she’s changed.

    Frankie:  Old habits.  She’s still Cecile’s daughter.

    Charlie notices Frankie shaking her head.

    Charlie:  Mom what’s wrong?  Is this what you were feeling uneasy about at the party?

    Cass:  She was like this before Maggie left the house.

    Frankie:  I thought it might have been, but it’s not.  Something else is wrong.  

    Charlie:  I’m gonna get you some water.

    Cass takes Frankie and they sit down.

    Frankie:  Where were you all this time?  I was calling you.

    Cass:  That’s...that’s what I have to tell you.

    Frankie:  Tell me what?   What happened?

    Cass:   This is all Christy’s doing.

    Frankie:  Christy?  What does she have to do with this?

    Cass:  She lied to you honey.  She hasn’t changed one bit.


    Meanwhile, Charlie is on her cell phone with Kirkland, who is at the Corys.

    Charlie:  Something happened to Maggie.  Dad found her unconscious.

    Kirkland:  Is she alright?

    Charlie:  Seems like she’s gonna be fine.  What’s going on over there?

    Kirkland:  Carl and Rachel just came downstairs.  I’ll call you back.



    Carl, Rachel, Cory and Elizabeth have entered the living room, catching all the guests attention.

    Carl: I brought you all here tonight for a celebration.  A celebration of….all aspects of life; good and bad.  We all have done things that we regret, especially me, but what matters is that we have people in our lives that we love, and that love us.  I was…an angry man when I came to Bay City; bent on revenge for my son Perry’s death.  It lead to me do some horrible things to some of you, then I met Rachel.  Her love, my children…changed me.  The friendships I’ve been able to build have been absolutely priceless.  I can honestly say that I have lived a full life.  I don’t deserve any of the good that I’ve received.  What I probably did deserve, I got.

    Donna:  Carl what are you saying?

    Carl:  I am saying…that everything has come full circle.  I have glioblastoma.

    Steven gets up and approaches Rachel and Carl.

    Steven:  Grandma is this true?

    Rachel:  Yes I’m afraid so.

    Russ:  I’ve been treating him for the pain.  It’s inoperable.

    Paulina:  Carl?  What?  How?

    Carl:  The tumor I had before returned more aggressive.  Dr. Matthews and I tried everything to slow it down, but we couldn’t.

    Paulina starts to cry.

    Paulina:  Oh Rachel.  I’m so sorry.

    Paulina and Rachel hug, and then she hugs Carl, then Vicky and Donna come up to them.

    Vicky:  I can’t believe I’m hearing this.  There’s gotta be something else we can do.

    Rachel:  Thank you Vicky.  I’ll be fine.

    Donna:  I’m so sorry Rachel.  If you need anything.

    Carl:  Thank you Bella.  Come on Rachel, let’s go outside.

    Carl and Rachel walk hand in hand outside to the gazebo as everyone looks on.  



    PART 2


    Frankie:  What do you mean?  Why are you saying this now?

    Cass:  I’m telling you why I didn’t arrive at the party.  

    Cass shows the picture message of a bound and gagged Maggie.

    Frankie:  Oh my God.  Christy did this?  

    Cass:  It came from Maggie’s phone.

    Frankie:  What?  You think Christy had something to do with this?

    Cass:  She said if I didn’t give her what she wanted, I would never see Maggie again.

    Frankie:  Well what did she want?

    Cass:  After she got out of prison, she went to see a fertility specialist.

    Frankie: You’re telling me she wants to get pregnant?  What would you have to…?  Oh my God.  She wanted...what did she ask you to do?

    Cass:  She wanted a sperm sample.  

    Frankie:  What the hell?  She wants you to be the father of her baby.

    Cass:  That’s the whole reason she stayed in Bay City.

    Frankie:  How could she do this?  I thought she was different.

    Cass:  She had you fooled.  I knew she was up to something.

    Frankie:  Wow.  This whole evening’s been crazy.  I wonder what’s going on at the Corys.



    Paulina folds her arms as she looks on at Carl and Rachel and she’s teary eyed.  Jake walks up to her.

    Paulina:  This can’t be happening Jake.  Not Carl.

    Jake:  I’m sorry.

    Paulina:  I grew up in foster homes.  Out one house and into another.  I never felt like I had a family until I met Rachel.  She was so loving and accepting of me.  She welcomed me with open arms into this family.   I remember Carl came to see me in the hospital after I had given birth to Dante.  He looked like a proud grandfather.  Carl and Rachel were the parents I never had growing up.  

    Jake:  I understand.  If there’s anything I can do, let me know.

    Jake massages Paulina’s shoulders and Vicky takes notice.


    Devin Lucas approaches Cory and Elizabeth, who are standing at the back double doors of the living room watching Carl and Rachel.

    Cory:  I wonder what they’re talking about.

    Elizabeth:  Maybe we should go and see.

    Devin Lucas:  I think they...they wanna be alone right now.  I get the feeling this is..it.

    Elizabeth hits Devin Lucas in his left shoulder.

    Elizabeth:  Don’t say that!   I’m going over there.

    Cory:  Lizzie!  He’s right.  Let mom and dad have this time.



    Carl and Rachel approach the gazebo bench and they sit down next to each other.  The guests slowly file out, but stay at a short distance.  Carl and Rachel look up at the night sky as they lean on each other and smile.

    Carl:  What a beautiful night.

    Rachel:  Not a cloud in the sky.

    Carl:  Seems like I can see every star.

    Vicky takes a step toward Jake and Paulina, but someone stops her.  The same person gets Carl’s attention as Kirkland notices Vicky looking out at the gazebo, as is Kirkland.

    Kirkland:  Mom why are you looking like that?

    Vicky:  I see him.

    Kirkland:  See who?

    Vicky:  Ryan.  He dressed in white this time.  He came to me the other night.

    Kirkland:  You, too?

    Vicky:  Wait a minute.  You see him, too don’t you?

    Kirkland:  Yeah.  He came to me, too.

    Ryan waves at them.  Meanwhile Rachel, of course, cannot see Ryan.  Carl gently rests his head in Rachel arms as she straddles his long, gray hair.

    Carl:  I thought there wouldn’t be anything more peaceful than after we put Cory and Elizabeth down for a nap.

    Rachel:  I remember that.  After Cass and Lila’s wedding.


    Rachel and Carl flashback to the present as she looks down at Carl, who seems to be falling asleep.  Rachel’s eyes begin to well up, knowing that this may very well be the end for her husband.  Carl sees Ryan reaching his hand out.

    Ryan:  I came to take you with me.  It’s time Carl.

    Rachel:  All’s well.

    Carl:  That ends well.

    Rachel rocks gently while Carl rests in her arms.

    Rachel:  Carl?

    Rachel realizes that Carl has died…in her arms, as everyone looks at them from behind.  Carl, now in spirit form, looks on at Rachel, and the party guests, then walks away with Ryan into the white light.





    Party at the Corys continues

    Carl makes his grand entrance.  Grant and Christy celebrate apparent victories


    PART 1



    Christy walks up to the door with a smile on her face.  As she puts the key in the slot, Grant walks up to her.

    Grant:  Hmm what’s gotten into you?

    Christy:  You don’t wanna know Grant.

    Grant:  Well, I’ve got some news to share with you.  

    Christy opens the door and they both walk in.

    Christy:  You look rather chipper.

    Grant:  And I have plenty of reason to be optimistic.  I’m very close to getting what I want.

    Christy:  Hmm I’ve heard that before.

    Grant:  Oh no Christy.  I’m about to hit paydirt with this one.

    Christy:  Yep.

    Grant:  You don’t believe me do you?  I hate that Paulina’s gonna be hurt by this.

    Christy:  Oh so you do care about Miss Muffet’s feelings?

    Grant:  She’s probably at the Corys now, wondering where Jack is.

    Christy:  Oh my God.  What have you done with the detective?

    Grant:  Oh don’t be ridiculous.  He’s fine, physically anyway.

    Christy:  So what happened?

    Grant:  Let’s just say that we will never see Detective Snyder’s ugly face in Bay City again.

    Christy:  You need to give credit where credit is due.

    Grant:  Killjoy.

    Christy:  If it weren’t for me you wouldn’t be where you are now.

    Grant:  You didn’t do anything you weren’t supposed to do.  You were just living up to your end of the bargain.  I get you out of prison, and you get me the evidence I need to get Paulina.


    Paulina walks out onto the gazebo and gets a phone call from Jack.

    Paulina:  Jack where are you?  You sound like you’re driving.

    Jack:  I had an emergency.  One of the girls.  Carly called.

    Paulina:  So you’re...headed to Oakdale.  

    Jack:  Yes.

    Paulina:  Oh alright, well I hope everything’s okay.  Call me when you get there.

    Jack:  Me, too.  I love you.

    Paulina:  Love you, too.  Bye.

    Paulina turns around and Amanda walks up to her.

    Amanda:  What happened?

    Paulina:  That was Jack.  He’s not coming.

    Amanda:  I’m sorry about that.

    Paulina:  Where’s Rachel?  

    Amanda:  I think she’s still upstairs with Carl.


    Rachel, Carl, Cory and Elizabeth are in Carl and Rachel’s room.  

    Rachel:  I’m not ready to do this.  I can’t.

    Carl:  Yes.  You can.  We’re going to do this.

    Cory:  Why did you invite everyone here so you can tell them you’re sick?

    Carl:  We’ve made a difference in a lot of people’s lives.  I owe them the truth.  

    Elizabeth:  Look dad if you don’t want to do it…

    Carl:  My darling daughter, I can do anything with you all at my side, now let’s go.



    PART 2

    At the Corys

    Jake comes out, takes off his tuxedo jacket, and places it gently on Paulina’s shoulders.

    Jake:  A little chilly out here.

    Paulina:  Thank you.

    Jake:  What happened to Jack?

    Paulina:  He said he had to go back to Oakdale.  Something wrong with his daughter.

    Jake:  Oh.

    Paulina:  I can’t help but thinking that something is wrong.  I mean Carly is there to take care of anything with his children.  He could’ve gone to Oakdale in the morning.

    Jake looks out at the night sky.

    Jake:  Yeah it doesn’t seem to add up.

    Paulina:  How are Bridget and Michele?

    Jake:  I have no idea.  As much as I’m trying to keep them from killing each other, I’m the one dying inside.  It hurts to see my daughters fighting like that.

    Paulina:  I can only imagine.

    Jake:  The thing I fear the most is that things between are probably gonna get worse before they get better, and I’m powerless to stop it.  So reminiscent of Marley and Vicky after Marley’s accident.  She was hell bent on getting back at Vicky, and Michele is reminding me of her.

    Paulina:  Marley just needed some help, and she got better.  Maybe that will happen for Michele, too.

    Jake:  I don’t know what to do Paulina I…my heart is breaking over this.  To walk out here and see them at each other’s throats like that.  They used to be inseparable, and now they hate each other.

    Paulina:  Their bond will prevail over anything they’re going through right now.

    Paulina puts her right hand on Jake’s left cheek so she can comfort him.

    Paulina:  You have to believe that.  

    Jake:  Thanks.

    Paulina:  Come here.

    They hug.

    Paulina:  They’ll be back to being sisters again.  Just hang in there.  Man I...look at you and your love for your children.  You’re nothing like the man I met twenty five years ago.

    Jake:  Your priorities change when you have children.  They’ve been number one since Vicky gave birth to them.

    Paulina:  You’ve been a wonderful father.

    Jake:  And you a great mother.

    Paulina:  I still can’t wrap my head around why Jack isn’t here.

    Jake:  It doesn’t seem right at all.  

    Paulina:  We just made love at my house and he said he had to stop at the station.

    Jake:  So we gotta find out what caused him to have to go back to Oakdale.

    Paulina:  Or who?

    Jake:  Wait a minute.  You think Grant may have something to do with it?

    Paulina:  I don’t know, but I’m going to find out.


    Christy:  I must say, I have never seen you so confident about this whole thing.  You really believe that you’re close to getting her.

    Grant:  Oh I am.  

    Christy:  Did you ever stop to think that Paulina will hate you after you show her what you showed Jack?

    Grant:  Of course I have.  Don’t you think it doesn’t kill me to do this to her.  I love her.  I always have.

    Christy:  So you’ve said.

    Grant:  It’s true.  After she gets over her initial contempt, she’ll realize how she really feels about me.

    Christy:  Yeah...right.

    Grant:  You’re laughing now but you won’t be later.

    Grant goes over to his bar and pours two glasses of brandy.

    Grant:  I think we should propose a toast.

    Christy:  I’d love to, but I don’t think I should be drinking any liquor.

    Grant:  What do you mean?  It’s not like you’re…pregnant?

    Christy:  I don’t know yet.

    Grant:  What happened?

    Christy:  Cass gave me what I wanted.  The whole reason I stayed in Bay City after I got out of prison.

    Grant:  Cass couldn’t have slept with you…voluntarily anyway.

    Christy:  I may be a lot of things but a rapist is not one of them.

    Grant:  No you’re just a husband killer.  That’s better.

    Christy:  Dr. Weston has already done the procedure, and he’s taken a sample of my blood to make sure.

    Grant:  That’s what you wanted?  To be pregnant with Cass’s baby?

    Christy:  I went to see Dr. Weston so I can get fertility treatments, and this is the time that I was ovulating.

    Grant:  You let a doctor who aged three women give you fertility treatments?     

    Christy:  You’re lucky I’m telling you this.

    Grant:  How did you get Cass to give you a sperm sample?  You must have threatened one of his children.

    Christy:  You make me out to be such a monster.  I did what I had to do to get what I wanted, and now I wait.  

    Grant:  What are you going to do if you’re pregnant?

    Christy:  No “ifs”.  I am going to be pregnant.

    Grant:  Are you going to tell Cass and Frankie?

    Christy:  Don’t mention her name.  I feel guilty about having to hurt her like this.  She’s the only real friend I’ve ever had.

    Grant:  With friends like you…

    Christy:  What is that supposed to mean?  I love Mary Frances and I cherish our friendship.

    Grant sips his brandy.

    Grant:  Sure you do.

    Christy:  I wanted a baby.  My son is gonna have a sibling.

    Grant:  Kirkland does, too.

    Christy:  Yeah he does.  Steven, Bridget and Michele.

    Grant:  I’m not talking about them.

    Christy:  Here comes more babble.

    Grant:  I got the results of a DNA test, and I’m the father.

    Christy:  So you have another child?

    Grant:  Surprisingly enough, Carl Hutchins was the one who gave me the DNA test.  His dying wish to keep me in suspense.  Revenge for Ryan’s death.


    Carl is in he and Rachel’s bedroom alone when he goes to the door, he sees Ryan, dressed in blue jeans, sneakers and a blue buttoned shirt.

    Carl:  Son.

    Ryan:  You seem calm.

    Carl:  I’m at peace.  I know that my family will be taken care of.  It’s time for me to tell everyone.  Everyone I’ve...helped.  Everyone I’ve hurt.

    Ryan:  You’ve definitely lead an interesting life.

    Carl:  I’ve come such a long way.  I’ve killed people.  I’ve terrorized others.  Then I married Rachel and had two children...and they love me.  My precious children.  All of them.  They don’t care about what I’ve done in my past.  Their love is what’s getting me through this.  Giving me the courage to announce to this to the world.


    Amanda is walking through the living room and Allen stops her.

    Allen:  Hey there beautiful.

    Amanda:  Hi.

    They kiss.

    Allen:  I haven’t gotten a chance to tell you.  My mother is cancer free.

    Amanda:  Nicole?  That’s great.  Congratulations.

    Allen:  Looks like you’re headed somewhere.

    Amanda:  Yeah I was just gonna go up and check on my mom.

    Allen:  Everything okay?

    Amanda takes a deep breath and looks away.

    Allen:  Amanda?

    Amanda:  I’m...not at liberty to say.  

    Allen:  Something’s definitely on your mind.

    Amanda:  I was sworn to secrecy.  My mother…

    The guests’ attention is taken as they all look at the living room entry way at Carl, Rachel, Cory, and Elizabeth, who stand together  hand in hand.

    Carl:  Good evening everyone.  Thank you for coming.

    Party at the Corys continues

    Vicky expresses her displeasure; Jake and Michael try to reach the twins



    Jake tends to Bridget’s injuries after her fight with Michele in the Cory Mansion gazebo:

    Jake gives Bridget some ice wrapped in a cloth.

    Jake:  Put this on your lip.

    Bridget:  Ow.

    Jake:  What the hell is going on with you two?

    Bridget:  You see how crazy she is!  She attacked me.

    Jake:  Why would she do that?

    Bridget:  I have no idea what goes on in her mind.  You guys need to get her some help.

    Jake:  Are you sure you didn’t provoke her?

    Bridget:  Oh my God, dad, are you saying this is my fault?  That I am the reason she wanted to fight me?

    Jake:  If there is anything you’re holding back you need to not.  I’m gonna ask you one more time.  Did you provoke Michele into attacking you?

    Bridget:  Dad what are you talking about?  You know something don’t you?

    Jake takes out his cell phone and shows Bridget the FacePage posts.

    Jake:  These.  This is why Michele came after you.  You told everyone in America what happened in the hospital.

    Bridget:  She cut herself with those scissors and made it looked like I attacked her.  She tried to turn all of you against me!

    Jake:  I remember when you two were close.  Your mother and I brought you home from the hospital.  So tiny.  So perfect.  You two did everything together when you were growing up.  You wanted to wear the same clothes.  What happened to you two?  It breaks my heart to see my girls fighting like this.

    Bridget:  Michele needs to get over her anger.

    Jake:  You did some questionable things to your sister, and these are the consequences.  She’s mad as hell.

    Bridget:  She needs help.

    Jake:  And you took advantage of it somehow.

    Jake begins to shake his head.

    Jake:  No there’s got to be more to it than just those FacePage posts.

    Donna walks in.

    Donna:  I can venture a pretty good guess as to what that is.

    Michael blots Michele’s eye with an ice pack.

    Michael:  Bridget gave you a shiner huh?

    Michele:  She’s given me much worse than that.

    Michael:  I know.

    Michele:  So you actually side with me on this one?

    Michael:  I’m not on anyone’s side.  I don’t want to see this at all.  My granddaughters fighting.  No I’m not on either side of this.

    Michele:  Why don’t you go talk to Bridget?  She started this whole mess.

    Michael:  You’re not blameless in this either honey.  Everybody has got to take their own responsibility in this or it will never get resolved.  It’s only going to get worse.

    Michele:  Well I have no intention of making amends.  Not after what she did.  There’s no going back to the way we were.

    Michael:  You don’t mean that.  No matter what differences you two have, she’s always going to be your sister.  No matter how much you think you hate her, that will never change.

    Michele:  She took great pleasure in humiliating me on social media.  She loved flaunting it in my face.

    Michael:  Flaunting what?

    Michele:  Grandma didn’t tell you huh?  Bridget and Cory screwed right under your noses.


    Donna:  I bet you…threw it in Michele’s face.

    Bridget:  Grandma what are you talking about?

    Donna:  You told Michele that you and Cory had sex.

    Jake:  What?

    Donna:  You used that to set her off didn’t you?

    Bridget:  I’m…I’m totally shocked by this.  You all are taking her side.  You’re trying to say she was justified in attacking me.

    Jake:  No.  We just wanna get to the bottom of what’s going on.

    Donna:  Both of you have to share the blame in this.

    Bridget:  What do you want me to do?  You want me to go back in time and change what happened at the prom?  Do you want to re-seal her acceptance letter to Harvard?  Well I can’t, and everyone has gotta get over it, including Michele.

    Donna:  Don’t you at least have some remorse  about what it’s done to her?

    Jake:  Donna’s right.  You may need to apologize to Michele.

    Bridget:  Why should I do that…when I’m not sorry.  The one that should be apologizing is mom.  She’s the one who set this all in motion.

    Donna:  What does Victoria have to do with this?

    Bridget:  She loves Michele more than she loves me.  Everything I did was to get her attention; to earn her favor, and I never did.  I’m not gonna let Michele win.

    Jake:  My God.  Listen to yourself.  You haven’t taken any responsibility for what you’ve done.

    Donna grabs Bridget’s shoulders.

    Donna:  Listen to me!  This has got to stop tonight!  I’m not gonna let you and Michele kill each other.

    Jake:  Neither am I.


    Steven:  We like each other a lot and you need to accept it.

    Vicky:  The hell I will!  That woman is trouble, and she’s going to hurt you.

    Steven:  She’s a wonderful, sweet, caring woman.

    Vicky:  She’s a homewrecker and God knows what else!

    Steven:  She made a mistake.  You of all people should understand after the ones you’ve made.

    Vicky slaps him.

    Vicky:  Don’t you ever talk to me that way!   I forbid you to be with Joy.

    Steven:  I’m a grown man.  You can’t forbid to me do anything.  I want to be with Joy, and we’re gonna be together.

    Joy walks up to them with two drinks.

    Joy:  Oh I’m sorry Vicky.  Do you want me to go get you a drink?

    Vicky:  Shut up you bitch!  If you do anything to hurt my son or my family, you’re gonna have to deal with me, and that’s not gonna be any fun….at all.

    Steven:  Watch how you talk to her!

    Vicky:  Don’t be surprised when she turns out not to be the woman you think she is.



    Frankie walks up to Charlie and Kirkland.

    Charlie:  Mom what’s wrong?  You look…

    Frankie:  Worried?  That’s because I am.  Have you heard from your father or Maggie?

    Charlie:  No.  

    Frankie:  They should be here by now.

    Kirkland:  I’m sure they’ll be along soon.


    Cass walks up to the front door of the Cory Mansion and finds Maggie lying in front of it.

    Cass:  Maggie!

    Cass tries to get her to come to, but she remains unconscious.

    Cass:  My God what happened to you?

    Cass picks her up and takes her away.



    PART 2

    Michael:  I bet you’re angry about that.

    Michele:  Not really.  Not just about that.  Bridget has been jealous of me for a long time.  She admitted it before we fought.

    Michael:  Whatever is going on between you two needs to stop.  You’re sisters.

    Michele:  She didn’t think about our sisterhood when she spiked Cory’s punch with vodka at the prom.

    MIchael (sighing):  It’s all in the past.  You have to move on from that, or else your anger is gonna eat you alive.  You might do something you’ll end up regretting.  

    Vicky walks in.

    Michele:  Do you really think I’m gonna hurt Bridget?

    Vicky:  Of course she wouldn’t.  Bridget is the one who started all of this.  Everything that she did before.  Her jealousy.

    Michele:  And the divorce.  It’s all her fault.

    Michael:  What?

    Michele:  Mom and dad are getting a divorce because of Bridget.


    Bridget:  How are you gonna do anything when you and mom are getting a divorce?

    Donna:  Jake.  You and Victoria are going through with it?

    Jake:  Donna this isn’t the time.  

    Donna:  How are you supposed to help Bridget and Michele mend their fences when you and my daughter can’t?

    Jake:  I’m not talking about this with you.  

    Bridget:  Everybody needs to be talking to Michele.  She’s sick.

    Donna:  You both are playing a part in your feud honey, and you both need counseling.

    Bridget:  She needs to be locked up in a padded room!


    Frankie gets a call on her cell phone.  It’s Cass.

    Frankie:  Cass where have you been I’ve been worried sick about you!  Why aren’t you  here?

    Cass:  I’m at the hospital with Maggie.

    Frankie:  Oh no.  Is everything okay?

    Cass:  I’m having her checked out.

    Frankie:  I’ll be right there.

    Charlie and Kirkland approach Frankie.

    Charlie:  Mom what’s going on?

    Frankie: Your father’s with Maggie at the hospital.  I’m going.

    Charlie turns to Kirkland.

    Kirkland:  Go ahead babe.  

    Charlie:  I’ll call you.

    Kirkland kisses her and as Charlie leaves, Kirkland gets a text from Eric.  

    It reads:   I’m hungry, let me know when u r coming to gimme something to eat.  Don’t keep me waiting long.


    Allen is with KC.

    KC:  This is a nice little party.

    Allen:  Yeah I wonder why Carl decided to throw it.

    KC:  I dunno.  I’m sure we’ll find out soon.

    Allen:  Hey uh...I’m glad we’re...talking you know?

    KC gives a half smile.

    KC:  Toni said I should give you a chance.

    Allen:  As soon as I found out about you being my daughter, I wanted a relationship with you.  If I’d known sooner…

    KC:  Why are you blaming yourself for that?  It wasn’t your fault.

    Allen:  Reginald kept me from my mother, and your mother kept me from you.  I want us to be close KC.  

    KC:  I’d like the same thing but you need to stop trying to meddle.

    Allen:  You’re talking about Eric Stenbeck.  

    KC:  I like him.

    Allen:  Look you’re a grown woman.  I can’t tell you what to do.

    KC:  Correct.

    Allen:  But I’m gonna keep an eye on him, because I’m not gonna let anything happen to you.

    KC:  Look I get you want us to have a relationship but you can’t come to me trying to be this overprotective dad.  That’s not gonna work.

    Allen:  Gotcha.  Whatever you want.

    KC:  I wonder where the rest of our family is.

    Steven and Joy walk up to them together.

    Steven:  That’s what I was wondering.  I haven’t seen my sisters, my brother, anybody.

    KC:  You guys look cozy.  Are you dating  or something?

    Joy snuggles up to Steven.

    Joy:  Yep.  We are.  Too bad Vicky doesn’t approve.


    VIcky:  Honey I’m sorry you found out the way you did.

    Michael:  Why are you blaming Bridget?

    Michele:  Because it is.  All the problems our family has is because of her and her schemes.

    Vicky:  Our problems were way deeper than Bridget’s machinations.  Listen, let’s go downstairs and join the party okay.  

    Michael:  Well you better keep her and Michele apart.


    Donna:  Don’t say that about your sister!

    Bridget:  She’s crazy.

    Jake:  Stop it!  Now!

    Bridget:  Michele blames me for you guys divorcing.  Do you?

    Jake:  Of course not.  Look I don’t wanna focus on that.

    Party at the Corys

    Michele confronts Bridget;  Rachel and Carl brace themselves


    Devin Lucas is combing his hair in front of the mirror, and suddenly he stops and has a flashback.

    (EPISODE 212)

    Lindsay:  I’m Lindsay.

    Devin Lucas:  Good to meet you.

    Devin Lucas extends his right hand, and Lindsay extends her right hand through the handles of the shopping bag, and they shake.  

    Devin Lucas:  You must be shopping for my dad’s party tomorrow night.

    Devin Lucas smiles, then has another flashback…(EPISODE 208)

            Devin Lucas:  I hate this.  You don’t have much time left dad.

    Carl:  I had to make things right for you.  I can’t leave this earth knowing that you’re not safe.  

    Lorna:  But you are now.  We all are.

    Devin Lucas:  Did you tell Cory and Elizabeth?

    Carl:  All of the children know.  
    Lorna:  You’re having a party in a couple of days.

    Carl:  Announcing it to everyone else.

    Devin Lucas:  I wish there was...something I could do to give us more time together.

    Carl:  Son, just be strong.  You’ll have plenty of support.

    Lorna:  You’ll have your brother and sisters; Mitch, your grandmother, and me.

    Devin’s smile quickly fades as he flashes back to the present as Lorna, dressed in a fucha glittered dress and heels.

    Lorna:  Are you ready?

    Devin Lucas:  To hear dad tell everyone he’s dying?  I dunno if I wanna hear it again.



    Lindsay is applying some makeup in front of a mirror when she has a flashback.

    (EPISODE 212)

    Lindsay:  I’m Lindsay.

    Devin Lucas:  Good to meet you.

    Devin Lucas extends his right hand, and Lindsay extends her right hand through the handles of the shopping bag, and they shake.  

    Devin Lucas:  You must be shopping for my dad’s party tomorrow night.

    Lindsay flashes back to the present and takes a deep breath.  She grabs her purse, opens the front door and there’s Gregory.  They look at each other and give each other a hug.

    Lindsay:  Gregory I’m so sorry.

    Gregory:  No.  Not it’s me.  I shouldn’t have been so pushy.  You weren’t ready to talk…

    Lindsay:   I was a complete ass.

    Gregory:  Let’s forget about that, and go to this party.

    Gregory extends his arm and Lindsay locks hers with his.



    Donna and Michael are standing near the double glass doors that lead to the gazebo.  Michael is looking around.

    Donna:  What are you looking for?

    Michael:  Looking for our family members.

    Donna:  Are you sure you’re not looking for Stacey?

    Michael:  Oh Donna we’re not gonna do this here are we?

    Donna:  I caught you calling her on your cell phone before we left.

    Michael:  This party is for Carl and Rachel.  Can we be civil for their sake?  Look there’s Bridget.

    Bridget walks up to her grandparents.

    Donna:  Hi.  

    Michael:  Hey sweetheart.

    Michael pecks Bridget on her right cheek.

    Donna:  Have you seen your mother?  Your sister?

    Bridget:  No.  I’m gonna go outside for a minute.

    Donna:  Okay dear.



    Bridget walks out and sits on the bench.  Michele quickly comes out and steps in front of Bridget.

    Michele:  You conniving little skank!

    Bridget:  What?  You’re wearing the same dress!

    Michele:  It looks better on me doesn’t it?

    Bridget:  I have no idea what you’re talking about.

    Michele:  You posted it on FacePage you bitch! You said that I hope I don't cut myself if I see you and your BF out together. Something like that.

    Bridget:  That’s because you’re not the saint that everybody thinks you are!

    Michele:  I knew it.  You’re jealous, and you always have been.

    Bridget:  Ever since you came back, you’ve been plotting against me haven’t you?  Did you really think I was gonna sit by and let you get the best of me?



    The door is open.  Cory sits on the bed and stares up at the ceiling, and Elizabeth comes in and sits next to him.

    Elizabeth:  Thinking about dad aren’t you?

    Cory:  Yeah of course I am.  We just got him back you know.  

    Elizabeth:  It definitely isn’t fair.

    Cory:  Not at all.

    Elizabeth:  I haven’t seen mom and dad all night.

    Cory:  I’m sure they’re still in their room.



    Carl walks out of the bathroom and sees his wife Rachel, who is wearing a pinkish white dress.  Carl is wearing a matching tuxedo.  They hug each other, then Rachel rests her arms on Carl’s shoulders.

    Rachel:  It’s like I have to hear the news again.  You have a brain tumor.

    Carl:  My beautiful, darling wife.  We’re all going to be fine.  We’re strong, we’re resilient.  You’ll see downstairs.  All the support we have.  Let’s go darling.



    PART 2

    Michele:  Is that why you slept with Cory?

    Bridget:  I slept with Cory because I love him.

    Michele:  You don’t love anyone but yourself.  You did that to get back at me.

    Bridget:  Eww I wasn’t even thinking about you during…

    Michele:  That’s the whole reason you did it.  When Cory finds out…

    Bridget:  What are you gonna do?  You’re gonna take him away, too?  Why can’t I have something?  You have everything!

    Michele:  I’ve got nothing because of you and everything you did.

    Bridget:  What makes you so damned special?  Mom and dad gushing over your grades.  You had Cory.  I have to scratch and claw to get mom to notice me; to get her to love me!

    Michele:  Looks who’s crazy.

    Bridget:  Mom humiliated me at your memorial service.  Do you know how much that hurt?  

    Michele:  And I did that to you?

    Bridget:  Yes you did!  You did this.

    Michele:  If you hadn’t tried to spike Cory’s drink at the prom; if you hadn’t kept my acceptance letter from me then maybe mom would give you the benefit of the doubt!  But you keep pulling stunts.  That’s why they’re divorcing!  

    Bridget:  What?  Mom and dad are getting a divorce?

    Michele:  That’s right, because of you!  This whole family has fallen apart because of you.

    Bridget:  No.

    Michele:  I have brain damage.  I couldn’t read, I lost Cory...because of you!  And I’m gonna make sure you get everything you deserve.

    Bridget:  Yes you’ve lost Cory.  

    Michele:  We were supposed to be together.

    Bridget:  But it didn’t happen that way did it?  I had him, and you didn’t.  Doesn’t that make you...mad...crazy?

    Michele:  You bitch!

    Michele grabs Bridget’s hair and pulls her to the ground.  Bridget manages to pull Michele to the ground.  The two are wrestling, and rolling.  Michele manages to get on top of Bridget and punches her in her face.  Bridget then scratches Michele, and they roll over again.  Bridget is on top of Michele, and starts slapping her.  Michele grabs Bridget’s hair again, and pulls her to the ground again.  Michele grabs Bridget’s head, but before she can bang her head on the ground, Jake grabs her, effectively stopping the fight.  Donna, Michael and Vicky walk out, and the other guests look on.  Jake has subdued Michele and Michael has grabbed Bridget.  Bridget and Michele are both bloodied and kicking.

    Jake:  Stop this you two!  What the hell is going on here?

    Michele:  I’m gonna get you bitch!

    Bridget:  Come and get me!

    Donna:  Oh my God.  

    Vicky:  Michele are you okay?  What did you do to her Bridget?

    Bridget:  Of course you take her side.  She started all of this!

    Michele:  You started it!

    Michael:  Let’s get em outta here.

    Jake and Michael escort Bridget and Michele out of the gazebo in opposite directions.



    Dr. Russ Matthews walks in and looks around.  Sharlene is with John and she notices him.

    Sharlene:  Is that Russ Matthews?

    John:  Yeah he just got a job at the hospital.

    Sharlene:  Oh.



    Steven and Joy walk in.  

    Steven:  Take your jacket?

    Joy:  Thank you.

    Steven goes to the closet, and Joy quickly takes out her phone, and pulls up the camera view of Tyrone and Marley’s living room.  She has a flashback.

    (EPISODE 174)

    Back at the Monticello Police Station Interrogation Room, Reginald gives instructions to Joy...

    Reginald: You don’t want Thomasina to get sick again do you? Get me my great grandson.

    As she flashes back to the present, Steven rejoins her.

    Steven:  Where were you just now?

    Joy:  Oh.  Thomasina sent me a text.

    Donna and Vicky walk into the foyer talking.

    Donna:  When are we going to do something about the girls?  Look what happened out there.

    Vicky:  That’s why Bridget is living with you.  I think she needs help.

    Donna and Vicky both stop when they see Steven and Joy.

    Steven:  Hey mom.  Grandma.

    Donna:  Honey.  Hi it’s good to see you.  Joy.

    Joy:  Donna Love?  You were the owner of that club that burned down right?

    Donna:  The Harbor Club?

    Joy:  Steven you didn’t tell me Donna was...your grandmother.

    Vicky:  This night just gets better and better doesn’t it?

    Steven:  Good evening to you, too mom.

    Donna:  Joy, why don’t we go into the living room?

    Vicky takes Steven to the side.

    Vicky:  What the hell are you doing here with her?   After what she did to Marley?

    Steven:  We’re gonna be together mom.

    Vicky:  You can’t be serious!


    Devin Lucas and Lorna walk in, and Felicia and Mitch greet them.

    Lorna:  Mother.

    Felicia:  Honey you look fabulous.

    Lorna:  Thank you.

    Devin Lucas:  Hi grandma.

    Felicia:  Hi sweety.

    Mitch:  Looks like everyone’s here huh?  

    Devin Lucas looks across the room and sees Gregory and Lindsay laughing.

    Christy leaves Cass no choice; Jack vs Grant; A slippery slope begins for Vickyblogentry-14971-0-29982100-1437608722_th



    Vicky walks in wearing an off white glitter dress with a matching purse, heels. ..and an envelope.  Guests are mingling as Amanda, who is wearing a sky blue dress, and Allen greet her in the foyer.

    Allen:  What’s up cuz?

    Vicky:  Hey.  Hi Amanda.

    Amanda:  Hi you look great.

    Vicky:  Thank you.  Likewise.

    Allen:  Did you hear the news?

    Vicky:  No what?  

    Allen:  Uncle Peter called me earlier.  He said that my mother is cancer free.

    Vicky:  Wow that’s wonderful!  That is such great news.

    Amanda:  That is.  I’m gonna go outside and call Alli.

    Allen:  Okay.

    They kiss on the lips and Amanda goes upstairs.

    Vicky:  That is the greatest news Allen.  I’m so happy for you.  Aunt Nicole beat cancer.

    Allen:  I’m so happy.  I get to spend more time with my mom.  So...what’s in the envelope?  Gift for Carl and Rachel.

    Vicky:  No it’s…it’s for Jake.

    Allen looks past Vicky and sees Jake.

    Jake:  Is that right?  

    Vicky turns around and looks at Jake.

    Allen:  I’ll leave you two alone.

    Vicky:  Let’s go outside and talk.



    Jake:  Is that what I think it is?

    Vicky gives him the envelope and Jake opens it and reads the contents.  Jake takes a deep breath.

    Jake:  Yep.

    Vicky: I’ve already signed it.  All you have to do is sign and turn it to the courts.  

    Jake:  This is final.

    Vicky:  This is what you wanted right?  A divorce?   Well you got it.

    Michele walks up to them.

    Michele:  A what?  You guys are getting a divorce?  It’s because of Bridget isn’t it?



    Frankie is on her cell phone out near the gazebo.

    Frankie:  Cass where are you?  I’m waiting for you to arrive and I’m getting worried.

    Frankie hangs up and Felicia walks up to her.

    Felicia:  Frankie?  Is everything okay?

    Frankie:  I don’t know.  Cass said he was on his way.

    Felicia:  You know how Cass is.  I’m sure he’ll be here any minute.

    Frankie:  That was about a half hour ago.  I can’t shake this feeling that something is off.  I wish he’d get here.



    Christy reaches into her pocket and takes a small cup out.

    Christy:  When I got taken away to that facility, I wondered how it would ever happen, but here we are.

    Cass:  Get to the point Christy!

    Christy:  It’s time Cass.  It’s time for me...to have a baby.

    Cass:  A baby?  You stayed in Bay City to get pregnant?  That doesn’t make any sense!

    Christy:  I went to Oakdale to see Dr. Weston.

    Cass:  Dr. Weston?  He’s the guy from that Swiss Clinic…

    Christy:  Yes he tried to speed up the aging process for Carly Snyder, Rose D’Angelo, and Emily Stewart.

    Cass:  I don’t think you wanted to see him because you wanted to get old.

    Christy:  No Cass, I want to get pregnant.  He gave me fertility treatments, and I circled this date ever since.  He told me it would happen around this time.  I would experience cramping.  

    Cass:  Christy for God’s sake will you tell me what’s going on?

    Christy:  Are you really this stupid?  I’m ovulating!

    Christy shows Cass the cup.

    Christy:  And all I need to get pregnant...is sperm....your sperm.

    Cass:  What the...you’re out of your mind if you think that I’m gonna give you my sperm so you can get pregnant!

    Christy extends the cup to Cass.

    Christy:  Sorry but you really don’t have much of a choice.  Maggie’s freedom depends on it.

    Cass:  So that’s your huge plan.  Your whole reason for staying in Bay City?

    Christy:  You got it.  Now go give me a sample.  I don’t have any books.  Think of Mary Frances.  Or better yet, think of me.

    Cass:  No way…

    Christy:  If you want to see Maggie again, you’ll do this….now!



    Jake:  Honey it’s nobody’s fault okay.

    Vicky:  Honey let’s go inside.  Your dad and I are done here.

    Michele:  Mom you...you can’t let this happen.

    Vicky:  Sometimes...it’s better to let some things go.

    Vicky and Michele enter the mansion.  As they open the door, Paulina is there.

    Paulina:  Vicky, Michele.

    Vicky:  Excuse us Paulina.

    Paulina turns to look at Jake holding the papers in his hands.

    Paulina:  Is that?  Oh.  Jake I’m so sorry.

    Jake:  Don’t be.  It’s time.  

    Paulina:  Did Vicky just give you those?

    Jake:  Yes, but I don’t wanna focus on this right now.  Where’s Jack?

    Paulina:  Jack should be on his way.  He had to stop at the station real quick.



    Jack:  I laugh because you’re one huge joke.  Why should I look at anything you have to give me?

    Grant:  Because your future depends on it, especially if it went viral.

    Jack:  Is this your latest ploy to keep me away from Paulina?  

    Grant:  You will thank me.  Go ahead.  Take a look.

    Grant gives Jack the jump drive.   Jack smiles.

    Jack:  If this gets you out of here.

    He sticks it in the USB of his desktop and is shocked.

    Jack:  What?  Where the hell did you get this?

    Grant smiles deviously.


    PART 2

    Grant:  I don’t see you chuckling now.  I knew you would enjoy the slideshow.

    Jack:  This isn’t real.

    Grant:  Oh it is real.  

    Jack:  This was…

    Grant:  A part of your past?  Those things have a way of coming back don’t they?

    Jack:  I wanted to help her.

    Grant:  Paulina?  You didn’t help her at all.  

    Jack:  You think this is gonna make Paulina love you?

    Grant:  I have to remove the obstacle keeping me from her, and that’s you.

    Jack:  So you’re gonna put this all over the internet?

    Grant:  Well the statute of limitations has long run on out on that...crime you and Paulina committed, but if I put it on the web, you would be out of a job.  In fact you would never work in law enforcement again.  You wouldn’t even be able to get a job as a security guard!

    Jack:  You claim to love Paulina?  You want to hurt her like this?

    Grant:  Of course not, that’s why I’m not going to let it go viral.  That decision really is up to you.  

    Jack:  How is that?

    Grant:  Carly, your daughters in Oakdale.  That’s where you should be.

    Jack:  So you had my family in mind when you got a hold of this?  Spare me the concern.

    Grant:  Go and work things out with your wife.

    Jack:  Or you’ll post this on FacePage?  You’re pathetic.

    Grant:  No.  What’s pathetic is that you’re a baby seller.  Did you see the last page?

    Jack slides to it and is further shocked.

    Jack:  DNA test.

    Grant:  What would everyone think?  Your family, your friends in Oakdale...that you sold an infant girl on the black market?  What would they think if they found out...that the little baby you sold to Scooter Carruthers on the black market that night...turned out to be Remy Woods?

    Jack:  Remy Woods.

    Grant:  Yes.  Remy Woods.  The girl that grew up in Foster homes, and came to Bay City as a con artist.

    Jack:  Shut up!

    Grant:  Remy and Paulina don’t even know who her father is, and that Remy’s father...is right here.  Right in front of me...you!


    Frankie:  It’s not like Cass not to call if something has happened.  I gotta go and find…

    Felicia touches Frankie’s wrist.

    Felicia:  No...don’t do that.  I’m sure Cass just got held up.  He will be here.

    Frankie:  Felicia you’re shaking.  You’re sweating, too.  Are you okay?

    Felicia has a flashback

    (EPISODE 219)

    As they walk to the decorated living room, they notice Felicia at the liquor table.  Felicia is staring down at the liquor.  Now both of her hands are shaking, she’s sweating, and taking deep breaths.

    Then she flashes back to the present.

    Felicia:  Hot flashes more than likely.

    Felicia stares inside and looks directly at the liquor on the table.


    Cass gives Christy the cup, and Christy examines it.

    Christy:  Hmm.  Okay.

    Cass:  Now where’s my daughter?

    Christy:  You’ll have to go back to the Corys to see her.

    Cass:  She’s been at the Corys the whole time?

    Christy:  You should go now.  I’m sure Mary Frances is worried about you.

    Cass:  If you’ve done anything to hurt my daughter, I will come after you.

    Christy:  Oh Cass, and don’t think about calling the cops.  You have no proof that I did anything.  Besides, Maggie has staged her own kidnapping before.

    Cass rushes off and Christy makes a call to Brianna, whose back is turned to a bound, gagged, and unconscious Maggie.

    Christy:  I got it.

    Brianna:  Wow really?

    Christy:  You can drop Maggie off at the Corys.  Your secret remains safe.

    Christy hangs up and makes another call.

    Christy:  Dr. Weston it’s me. I have what we need...to make a baby.



    Brianna hangs up and notices Maggie is starting to come to.  Brianna grabs another needle full of a sedative and runs over to inject Maggie.

    Brianna:  No.

    Maggie is unconscious again after another injection by Brianna.


    Grant:  What’s the matter Jack?  Nothing to say?

    Jack:  You think Paulina’s going to love you after this?

    Party at the Corys Part 5

    Cass gets an ominous text message; Michele is further infuriated by Bridget



    Allen walks downstairs dressed in a black tuxedo, white shirt, and a black bowtie.  He gets a phone call on his cell.

    Allen:  Hello?  What?  Oh man that’s...that’s the best news.  My mother is cancer free.  Thank you unc.

    He hangs up smiling and Michele opens the door with her key.  Michele is also wearing a sequin dress.

    Allen:  Hey Michele.

    Michele:  Hi Allen.  You look nice...and happy.

    Allen:  Your Aunt Nicole is cancer free.  That’s the best news.  

    Michele:  Wow that’s...that’s wonderful.

    Allen:  Hey if you’re looking for Donna and Michael you just missed them.  They left for the party about twenty minutes ago.

    Michele:  I actually was looking for Bridget.

    Allen:  No Bridget went with them.  What are you doing here?  Shouldn’t you be heading to the party?

    Michele:  I left something here.  I just came back to get it.

    Allen:  Oh well...I’m gonna hurry up and go meet Amanda.  See ya later.

    Michele:  Sure.

    Michele immediately goes upstairs and heads straight for Bridget’s room.



    Michele looks around and goes straight for Bridget’s laptop.  She sticks a USB in the side, presses a few buttons, and begins to download information.

    Michele:  What are you up to Bridget?



    Cory is in his bedroom fixing his bowtie when Bridget peeks in.  Cory turns around and his eyes widen as Bridget is wearing a sequin dress with black heels.

    Cory:  You look...so beautiful.

    Bridget walks up to him and wraps her arms around him.

    Bridget:  Thank you Mr. Handsome.  

    After their embrace, Cory turns back to the mirror and continues to adjust his bowtie.

    Bridget:  What’s wrong babe?  Something on your mind?

    Cory:  Tonight’s the night.

    Bridget:  For what?

    Cory:  I’m not supposed to tell anyone.  I’ve been keeping it to myself since I got the news.

    Bridget:  Cory?  What’s going on?  Is everything okay?

    Cory:  You can’t breathe a word of this to anyone.

    Bridget:  Of course not, but you’re scaring me.  

    Cory:  It’s the reason my dad is throwing this party.  He’s gonna tell everyone that he’s dying.

    Bridget:  Oh....oh no...I’m so sorry.

    Bridget throws her arms around Cory.

    Bridget:  Is there anything I can do?

    Cory:  You’re...doing more than enough.

    Bridget:  Does anyone else know?

    Cory:  Well Devin already knew.

    Bridget:  Devin?  Who’s Devin?

    Cory:  My half brother.  Long story.  Mom and dad told Lizzie, Matt and Amanda.  I don’t think they told Paulina or Frankie though.


    Frankie walks up to the front door of the Cory Mansion and she is talking on her cell phone with Cass who is in his car.  He is talking through the car’s bluetooth.

    Frankie:  When do you think you’re gonna get here?

    Cass:  I’m on my way.  I had to stop at the office for a quick minute.

    Frankie:  Well...please hurry.  I...I need you.

    Cass:  Frankie what’s going on?

    Frankie:  I’m not feeling great about...anything.  Ever since Maggie left the house.

    Cass:  Honey just go in, mingle a bit.  That should take your mind off of whatever it is you’re feeling.

    Frankie:  I’m real nervous about tonight.  Some things are going to happen, and they won’t be good.

    Cass:  Go inside.  I’ll be there in a minute okay.  

    Frankie:  Love you.

    Cass:  Love you, too.



    Brianna has a cell phone, and a picture of Maggie, who is bound, gagged, and unconscious lying on a cot.   She sends the picture, along with text, to someone.


    Cass, who is walking toward the front door of the Corys, gets an alert.

    Cass:  What the…?

    It’s the picture of Maggie, and a text that says:  If you want to see your daughter again, come down to the warehouse downtown...alone.

    Cass:  No...Maggie?



    PART 2


    Michele is on Bridget’s computer sifting through the information that she downloaded onto the USB she stuck in the side of the laptop, and she is shocked what she sees.

              Michele:  That...bitch!


    Bridget:  They told the family first.  Wow I’m so sorry.  I know you just got your dad

    back.  Now you’re gonna lose him again.  I don’t know what to say.

    Cory:  It isn’t fair you know?

    Bridget:  It’s not.

    Cory:  My dad fought so hard to come back to us, and now he’s gonna be taken

    away again, and he’s not coming back this time.

    Bridget:  I wouldn’t even know what I’d do if I lost my dad.

    Cory:  You would do what I would do; be there for you.

    Bridget:  I wish there was something I could do to keep your dad for you.

    Cory:  His brain tumor is spreading rapidly.  There’s nothing anyone can do.

    Bridget:  Oh Cory.  I’m so sorry.  

                           Cory:  I would have told you sooner but my mom and dad didn’t want us to tell anyone.

                                Bridget:  I understand.  Hey maybe if we....go downstairs it’ll help you feel a little better.

                                Cory:  I’ll think I’ll...stay up here for a minute.

    Bridget:  Okay.  I’ll go to the gazebo.


    Meanwhile, downstairs in the foyer, Matt is on his cell phone facing the living room.

    Matt:  Hey Nurse Brianna.  It’s Matt Cory.  Just givin’ you a call, and see when you want that personalized Bay City tour we talked about at the hospital.  Talk to you later.  Gimme a call back.

    Matt hangs up, turns around and greets Frankie, who flashes a pensive smile.

    Matt:  Frankie hey.

    Frankie:  Matthew.

    Matt:  Oh no, something’s definitely on your mind.

    Frankie looks around.

    Frankie:  Hey have you heard from Maggie?

    Matt:  No, but I’m sure she’ll be along shortly.  Why?

    Frankie: I don’t...I don’t know how to explain it.  Something’s wrong.

    Matt:  Oh...come on she’s probably just taking her time getting dressed.  Call her.

    Frankie:  Good idea.

    Frankie takes out her cell phone and calls Maggie’s phone.



    Brianna looks at Maggie’s phone vibrating.  Brianna presses “ignore”.  

    Brianna:  Maggie’s not available to take your call right now.


    Frankie:  No answer.

    Matt:  Frankie you seem really nervous.

    Frankie:  She came to our house earlier, and ever since she left, I haven’t felt right.  Something is wrong.

    Matt:  Have you talked to Cass?

    Frankie:  He said he was on his way.  He should be here by now.



    Cass walks into a dimly lit room, looks around.

    Cass:  Maggie!   Maggie where are you?

    Suddenly, Christy, dressed in all black, walks into the room behind Cass.

    Christy:  You don’t get to see Maggie yet.

    Cass turns around.

    Cass:  You!  What the hell have you done with my daughter?

    Christy:  Don’t worry, Maggie’s safe...for now.

    Cass grabs Christy’s arms and shakes her.

    Cass:  If you hurt Maggie I’ll kill you..

    Christy:  Let me go!  

    Cass:  Where’s Maggie?

    Christy:  You will see Maggie again, provided I get what I want.

    Cass:  I knew you were up to something.  

    Christy:  And now you’re gonna find out.  The whole reason why I stayed in Bay City after I got out of that criminal mental facility.

    Cass:  I don’t care.  I wanna see Maggie.

    Christy:  Maggie is safe.

    Cass:  I’m gonna have you arrested for kidnapping.  I’m calling the police.

    Christy:  If you want to see your daughter, you will put that phone away.

    Cass:  Tell me where she is!

    Christy:  I’m not telling you yet, not until I get what I dreamed of ever since I was committed.  It’s why I killed Douglas.  I had to get him out of the way.

    Cass slowly puts his phone away as Christy begins to tell a story.

    Christy:  All of his attempts to get me to see reality; telling me that I shouldn’t be in love with you.  I got tired of him telling me that.  Doesn’t he realize that the heart wants what it wants!

    Cass:  You didn’t love me.  You were obsessed with me!

    Christy:  When I danced in Mary Frances’s wedding dress, I envisioned you and I...married.  Then we would do the things that married people do.  A house; black picket fence.  I hate white fences.  They get dirty way too easily and they’re too much maintenance.  After all of that, we would have a child.

    Christy reaches into her pocket and takes a small cup out.

    Christy:  When I got taken away to that facility, I wondered how it would ever happen, but here we are.

    Cass:  Get to the point Christy!

    Christy:  It’s time Cass.  It’s time for me...to have a baby.





    Party at The Corys Part 3

    Grant confronts Jack


    Carl and Rachel are in their bedroom.  Carl walks out of the bathroom, and sees Rachel on her laptop wearing a white sequin dress.

    Carl:  You look exquisite...as always.

    They hug and Rachel lets out a deep breath after the embrace.  She looks her husband in his eyes.

    Rachel:  You were great with Elizabeth.

    Carl:  That wasn’t easy at all.  You know how our daughter can be.

    Rachel:  I almost understand it.

    Carl:  She had to know that you are not the blame for this.

    Rachel:  Thank you.  I was hoping this...day would never come.  This party; this evening; none of it.

    Carl:  We’ve gotta tell everyone and I’m at peace with it.

    Rachel:  Well I’m not.  The people we love are gonna be hurt.  

    Carl:  We can’t let this get the best of us.  You are the rock...for all of us.

    Rachel:  I hate that we have to tell our friends and the rest of our family.  Felicia…



    Mitch walks into the living room, where Felicia is looking at her laptop.

    Mitch:  Hey we gotta go to the Corys soon right?

    Felicia:  Yeah right.  I’m just checking to see if there’s any movement on my movie deal.

    Mitch walks over, slowly closes the computer, and kisses Felicia on her forehead.

    Mitch:  Let’s...go to the Corys, and you can worry about the movies later, and you’re sweating.

    Felicia:  Oh it’s just...nerves I guess.

    Mitch:  Stress about the movies?

    Felicia:  You could say that I suppose.  We’ve been invited to a party and I haven’t told Rachel that I accepted Iris’s offer.

    Mitch:  I’m sure she’ll understand when she finds out.  Let me go get the keys.

    Mitch walks back into their bedroom and Felicia looks at her right hand, and it’s shaking.


    Rachel: (V.O.):  Paulina…



    Paulina walks downstairs in a white slightly glittered dress and matching open toed heels.  

    Jack:  My my.  You look great.  Can you take it off?

    Paulina:  As much as I’d love to do that, we gotta get to the Corys.

    Jack:  Do I really have to go to this party?

    Paulina:  Yes you doooo.

    Jack:  Darn.

    Paulina:  Rachel and Carl are the parents I never had.  You know how I grew up.

    Jack:  Foster homes.  I know.

    Paulina:  Well if...you don’t want to go…

    Jack:  Come on Paulina.  Of course I wanna go with you.

    Paulina:  Are you sure?

    Jack:  I’m ready to let Bay City know that we’re together, but first I gotta go to the station.

    Paulina:  Work work work.

    Jack:  No I’m just checkin up on Dante.

    Paulina:  He texted me and told me that he’s enjoying the job.

    Jack:  Yeah it’ll be something real quick.  Gonna check over his work, then I’ll get dressed and be on my way to the Corys.

    Paulina:  I wish Dante could finish his training in Bay City.

    Jack:  He doesn’t have that long to go.  He’ll be back home before you know it.

    Paulina:  You’re gonna bring my son home to me.

    Jack:  That’s not all I’m gonna bring to you.  

    Paulina smiles.

    Paulina:  Hmmmm.

    They kiss.


    Rachel: (V.O.) Donna, Michael.


    LOVE MANSION...Donna, dressed in a baby blue glittered dress, walks into the foyer.

    Donna:  Bridget we’re leaving soon!  You’ve got five minutes!

    Bridget is upstairs in her bedroom and she’s applying her lip gloss, then she stands up and looks in her vanity mirror.  As she primps her hair, and admires her light green dress, she notices something in the background….the used condom.  

    Bridget:  How did that get over here?  



    Michael, who is wearing a navy blue suit, white shirt, and sky blue tie and black dress shoes, is on his cell phone.

    Michael:  Hey Stace it’s me.  Just thought I’d check on ya.  Hope you and Lindsay are doin’ well.  I’ll speak to you soon.  

    Michael turns around and sees Donna.

    Michael:  You look great.

    Donna walks up to him and slaps him.

    Michael:  Hey what was that for?

    Donna:  Stacey Winthrop?  Really?



    PART 2

    Michael:  Donna…

    Donna:  We’re about to go together to a party for Carl and Rachel and your’e calling Stacey Winthrop?

    Michael:  She’s trying to get through a difficult time.

    Donna:  And you just have to be there for her huh?

    Michael:  Donna you’re jealous for no reason.

    Donna:  No reason?  You two dated years ago.

    Michael:  Exactly Donna...years ago.

    Donna:  She has Cass and Frankie to help her get through whatever she’s going through with her daughter.

    Michael:  How can you be so cold?  Stacey needs a friend.

    Bridget interrupts them.

    Bridget:  Ummm...are we ready to go?

    Donna turns around, gathers herself, and smiles.

    Donna:  Of course we are honey.  Let’s go to the Corys.


    Carl:  I just can’t help but to think about Cory and Elizabeth.

    Rachel:  I don’t want to worry about them.  They’re in good hands.

    Carl:  I know.  I take comfort in that.  They’ve got a whole family to look out for them.

    Rachel:  We’re all gonna miss you, but we’re going to get through it.

    Carl:  You’ve got such a...strong support system.  Matthew, Amanda, the children, your friends.

    Rachel:  I’ve been blessed, especially with Felicia.  I am so grateful that we’ve been friends for such a long time.


    Meanwhile, Mitch and Felicia arrive at the Cory Manse.  Matt answers the door.

    Felicia:  Matthew hi.

    Matt:  Felicia...Mitch.

    Mitch:  Hey there.

    Felicia walks to the living room.

    Mitch:  So this is the night of the big party huh.  Wonder what prompted Carl to do that.

    Matt:  It’s...it’s a celebration.

    Felicia leaves them as they finish.

    Mitch:  You know Jasmine texted me.  She wants a new tablet.

    Matt:  I told her she needs to focus on school right now.

    Mitch:  Well…

    Matt:  Mitch tell me you didn’t...come on.  

    Mitch:  She’s my granddaughter I can’t say no.

    Matt:  I said I would get her a new tablet once she picked her grades up.

    Mitch:  She promised me she would do better.

    Matt:  Promises promises.

    As they walk to the decorated living room, they notice Felicia at the liquor table.  Felicia is staring down at the liquor.  Now both of her hands are shaking, she’s sweating, and taking deep breaths.


    Carl:  I also worry about Paulina.  She’s become like a daughter to me.

    Rachel:  Me, too.  Just wondering about how things are gonna end up for her with Jack.  He’s still married to Carly.  I really hope she doesn’t get her heart broken.


    Paulina walks into the foyer of the mansion and Matt greets her.

    Paulina:  Matthew hi.

    Matt:  Hey you look great.

    Paulina:  Thank you.  Where’s your mom and Carl?

    Matt:  I think they’re still upstairs.

    Paulina:  This big party.

    Matt takes a deep breath.

    Matt:  Yeah.

    Paulina:  What’s going on?  Is everything alright?

    Matt:  Yeah uh...I just laid into my father about Jasmine.

    Paulina:  Oh.  How is my niece doing?

    Matt:  She’s giving me gray hairs and she doesn’t even live here.

    Paulina:  Oooh Matthew.  The joys of being a parent.

    Matt:  Oh the worries.

    Paulina:  I was blessed to raise Dante, but I didn’t get that chance with Remy.  I wish she didn’t have to grow up the way I did.

    Matt:  The important thing is that you were there for her when you could be.  As soon as you knew who she was you were in her life, and she loves you.

    Paulina:  I love her, too.  I love both of my children.

    Matt:  Where’s Jack?

    Paulina:  He had to stop at the station, but he should be along soon.


    POLICE STATION...Jack is wearing a dark gray suit, white dress shirt, with no tie.  He’s sitting at his desk on the desk phone.

    Jack:  That’s good Dante.  I’m hearing that you’re picking up things quickly.  Soon you’re gonna be good enough to take over the BCPD.  Talk to you soon buddy.

    Someone buzzes Jack.  

    Jack:  What’s up?  Okay send him in.

    Seconds later, Grant walks in.

    Jack:  What are you doing here?

    Grant:  Ohh Detective Snyder, this has been long overdue.  Time for us to have a talk.

    Jack:  About what?

    Grant:  What do you think?  Paulina.  After this you’re not gonna be involved in her life anymore.

    Jack laughs while Grant takes out the jump drive.

    Jack:  Grant don’t you have something else to do?

    Grant:  Oh you think this is funny.  You won’t be laughing after you see what’s on this.  I can’t wait for you to take a look at it.






    Party at the Corys Part 2

    Carl makes a cryptic revelation

    Consultants:  ML Cooks and A. Washington Beeby


    PART 1



    Someone rings the doorbell and Carl, dressed in a white tuxedo, answers the door and Grant walks in.

    Carl:  Grant Harrison.  

    Grant looks around.

    Grant:  Where is everyone?   This doesn’t look like a party.  Am I early?

    Carl:  No not at all.  As a matter of fact, your punctuality is very much appreciated.  You’re right on time.

    Grant:  Is this some kind of game you’re playing because if it is…

    Carl:  No Grant this is not a game, but I assure you, what I’m about to do will be a whole lot of fun.

    Grant:  And what is that?

    Carl takes an envelope out of his inside jacket pocket.

    Carl:  This...is about what you took from me twenty years ago.  

    Grant:  Are you still angry about Ryan?  

    Carl paces while he recalls his version of the events…

    Carl:  At the train trestle.  Your mother lead everyone there.  

    Grant:  I thought Ryan was trying to…

    Carl:  The whole thing was about you.

    Grant:  I needed to know where Kirkland was.

    Carl:  You shot my son in the back like a coward and killed him.  You took Ryan away from me; from Victoria; from Kirkland.

    Grant:  Kirkland had a father!

    Carl:  You are no kind of father.  You took my son away from me in the most cowardly way, but I’ve had the distinct and utter pleasure...of keeping yours from you.

    Carl holds up the envelope.

    Carl:  This...is about your child.

    Grant:  Kirkland?  

    Grant starts shaking his head.

    Grant:  No.  No.  Are you trying to say that Ryan is Kirkland’s biological father?

    Carl smiles deviously as Ryan, dressed in blue jeans and a buttoned up lumberjack shirt, watches, and only Carl sees him.


    AT KIRKLAND’S SUITE...Kirkland is front of the mirror’s common area.  He flashes back to what Ryan told him.

    (EPISODE 215)

    Ryan:  One lie is gonna turn into another and another, and it’s the lies that are gonna break up you up.  The longer you keep lying, the more you destroy the trust.  The best chance for you to save your marriage...is to tell Charlie the truth.

    Kirkland flashes back to the present and he hears Charlie.  

    Charlie:  Well...what do you think?

    Kirkland turns around and sees his wife is a fitted forest green dress with white high heeled shoes, and her hair in a bun.

    Kirkland:  You look...stunning.

    Charlie smiles.

    Charlie: I knew you’d like it.

    Charlie walks up to him and they kiss.  Meanwhile, Kirkland has another flashback…

    (EPISODE 217)

    Eric:  Then Charlie is gonna get a copy of this, and I don’t have to tell you what will happen after that.  Oh keep it.  I’ve got plenty of copies.  You could have another career on your hands is this went viral.  A lot of gay men, will want a taste of your frank.  I know I do...as often...as I can.

    Eric unzips Kirkland’s pants, looks down, and looks back in Kirkland’s face.

    Eric:  There we go.  I knew you wouldn’t disappoint.

    Kirkland flashes back to the present.  He then faces Charlie

    Charlie:  Are you alright?

    Kirkland:  Yeah I’m...I’m great.

    Charlie:  We gotta get to the Corys.

    Kirkland:  Right.



    Cory is in his bedroom buttoning up his white dress shirt as someone knocks on the door knocks twice.

    Cory:  Come in Lizzie.

    Elizabeth walks in and leaves the door ajar.  Elizabeth is wearing a light gray dress.

    Cory:  Hey.

    Elizabeth:  Are you ready?

    Cory:  I dunno.

    Elizabeth:  I have to be honest with you.  I’m not.  I’m not ready to say goodbye to daddy again.

    Cory:  I’m not either, but we don’t have much of a choice do we?

    Elizabeth:  It’s like they’re giving up.  Especially mom.  She didn’t give up last time.  This time, it’s like she’s just throwing in the towel.  

    Cory:  Mom and Dr. Matthews did everything they could to help dad.  The tumor is just too aggressive.

    Elizabeth:  He came back last time didn’t he?  Didn’t our brother Evan save his life?

    Cory:  Lizzie give it up!  We can’t save dad this time!  

    Rachel peeks in and walks in.

    Elizabeth:  I’m not so ready to give up on daddy like everyone else.

    Rachel:  None of us are, but sometimes we have to accept what is.  Your father has an aggressive brain tumor, and nothing we’ve tried has worked.

    Elizabeth:  Well you should try harder.  Seems like you’re just waiting for dad to die.


    MEANWHILE, in the Cory Mansion living room, Carl walks to the bar and pours himself a drink while Grant follows closely, and so does spirit Ryan, unseen to Grant.

    Carl:  A drink?

    Grant:  What the hell kind of sick game are you playing Carl?  You talk about my son and you want to drink to that?

    Carl:  That’s because you think I’m talking about Kirkland.  I would never hurt that boy.  He turned out way more decent than you could ever dream to be.

    Grant:  Kirkland is the only child I have.

    Carl:  No Grant.  You have another child out there.

    Carl gives Grant the envelope.

    Grant:  What is this?

    Carl:  Go ahead.  Open it.



    PART 2

    CAR...Kirkland is driving with Charlie in the front passenger’s seat.

    Charlie:  I went shopping with Lindsay yesterday.

    Kirkland:  Oh that sounds good.  How’d that go?

    Charlie:  She picked this dress out for me.  I had no idea what I was gonna wear.  I wanted to choose something that you’d like, especially after that fight we had.

    Kirkland:  I wouldn’t call it a fight.  A disagreement maybe.

    Charlie:  Well I finally saw your point of view, and I love you for it.  I realized how much you love me.

    Kirkland:  I...I do love you...so much.  You have brought so much positivity to my life.  I was full of hate and contempt for my dad before I came back.

    Charlie:  Well if you’re trying to give me credit...don’t.  When I came back home I…

    Charlie stops herself as if she’s going to say too much.

    Kirkland:  You what?

    Charlie:  I had fences to mend with my mother.  She stayed away from Bay City after we thought she was killed by Fax Newman.  I only shared with you what my experiences were.

    Kirkland:  And I appreciate you for that.  My dad and I are good now, and I do have you to thank for that.

    Charlie smiles.


    Carl, with drink in hand, walks toward the double doors leading to the gazebo, while Grant, who is behind him, looks over the contents of the envelope…

    Grant:  This says I’m a match for this person’s father?

    Carl:  You would be correct.

    Grant:  But it doesn’t say who the person is.

    Carl:  Again, you’re correct.

    Grant:  So you’re playing a game again.

    Carl:  This is no game Grant.  You see, I don’t have much time left, and I thought I would leave you with a parting gift.

    Grant:  You’re dying?  Ha!  Evil like you never dies.

    Carl:  This is it Grant.  

    Grant:  You know who my child is don’t you?

    Carl:  Yes..I most certainly do.

    Grant:  Tell me where I can find them.

    Carl:  Now that...I’m not going to do.

    Grant:  How do I know this is even authentic?

    Carl:  Go ahead Grant.  Verify it.  You’re gonna have to think long and hard about the possibility of this child.  I have to say...it gives me great satisfaction to do this after you took my son from me.  After you shot my son in the back on the train trestle!

    Grant:  Tell me where my child is!

    Carl laughs as to tell Grant that he is not going divulge any information.

    Grant:  Tell me where my child is!

    Toni Burrell, in police uniform, walks in with two other officers.

    Toni:  Is everything okay in here Carl?  Is Grant threatening you?

    Carl:  No...as a matter of fact he was just leaving.

    Toni:  Come on Carl, I’d love to haul his ass in after everything he’s done.

    Grant:  That’s fine.  I’ve got someplace else to go anyway.

    Carl:  Good luck on your mission Grant.  It won’t be as difficult as you think.  Now get out.

    Toni and the officers stare at Grant.

    Toni (to one of the officers):  See that he gets out.

    One of the officers escorts Grant out as Toni approaches Carl.

    Toni:  We just came by to make sure everything was fine.

    Carl:  Yes.  Everything...is as it should be.

    Toni and the other officer leave the living room and Carl and then Ryan speaks.

    Ryan:  You’ve been holding on to that for a long time haven’t you?

    Carl:  He’s your coward brother.

    Ryan:  I guess this is your way of letting it go.

    Carl:  I suppose you could say that.

    Ryan:  I’m glad you did.  Even he deserves to know the truth.

    Carl:  Did you really think I was going to tell him?  He has no idea how close he is to finding his child.  He’ll figure it out.

    Ryan:  I get the feeling that the last thing you’re concerned about is Grant’s offspring.

    Carl:  You’re exactly right.  I’m concerned about my children, especially Cory and Elizabeth.


    Cory:  Lizzie stop it.

    Rachel:  That is not true!

    Elizabeth:  You could have gone overseas.  You could have done something to stop the growth.  

    Rachel:  If there was another way don’t you think we would have found it and used it by now.  You have to accept it.  Carl is going to die.

    Elizabeth:  Why?  Why are we going through this again?

    Rachel:  I don’t know honey.  

    Cory:  We gotta be strong Lizzie.  Dad doesn’t want us moping around feeling sorry for him.

    Elizabeth:  Is that what you think I wanna do?  I just don’t think we’ve done enough to save him.

    Carl walks in.

    Carl:  Let me speak to my daughter alone please.

    Cory and Rachel look at each other...and walk out.

    Carl:  Elizabeth...stop it right now!  Your mother did everything she could.  Dr. Matthews did everything he could.  There’s nothing else we can do to stop the tumor from growing.

    Elizabeth starts to cry.

    Elizabeth:  No dad I dont wanna believe that!  I can’t bear to lose you again.

    Carl:  You’re so young; so beautiful; so ready to take on the world.

    Elizabeth:  Not without you daddy.

    Carl’s eyes start to well up.

    Carl:  Yes my darling daughter...you can do it without me.   Your mother always used to tell how much you were like Ada.  So strong willed; so determined.  Rachel said Ada was her rock, and you’re gonna have to rely on your mother.

    Party at the Corys Part 1

    Christy uses Eric; Maggie is in danger

    Consultants:  ML Cooks and A. Washington Beeby


    PART 1

    Kirkland and Charlie are lying in bed.  As Charlie sleeps, Kirkland picks up his cell phone off the night table and it reads 7:35am.  He swipes to a picture of the ledger he took while at his father’s house:







    Dr. Weston









    Kirkland (thinking in his mind):  I gotta find out what that’s about.  Why did Christy go to Salem?



    Someone is ringing the doorbell.  The alarm clock on Christy’s night table reads 8:56am, and she emerges from the bathroom holding her stomach as she goes and answers the door.  Brianna Jameson walks in.

    Brianna:  What’s wrong with you?  Are you okay?

    Christy:  I’m...I’m fine.  Cramps.

    Brianna:  That’s a sign.

    Christy:  I know that.  That means it’s time, and I hope you’re ready to do your part.


    AT THE WINTHROPS...Maggie checks her cell phone as the time reads 2:42pm as she rings the doorbell.  Cass answers the door.

    Cass:  Heeeey.

    The two embrace.

    Cass:  My God it’s so good to see you.  Come on in.  It’s about time you came and saw your old man.

    Frankie walks into the living room.

    Frankie:  And your stepmother.

    Maggie:  Frankie.

    She and Frankie embrace.

    Frankie:  Hey honey.  

    Maggie takes out her car keys.

    Cass:  Why do you keep pressing that button?

    Maggie:  I’m trying to lock my car.

    Frankie:  Oh you don’t have to do that out here.

    Cass:  Unless you left food in there.  

    Frankie (smiling):  Yeah, the animals.

    Maggie:  It’s a brand new car.

    Cass:  So what did Cecile buy?

    Maggie:  My mom didn’t buy anything.  I mean I am a doctor now right.  I can afford such things.

    Cass:  That’s riiiiight.  Have you started yet?

    Maggie:  No...I start tomorrow.  I just had to come see you guys.  

    Cass:  And I’m happy that you came.

    Frankie:  You know Cass and I are going to the Corys tonight.  You need to come with us.

    Cass:  Rachel will be happy to see you.

    Maggie:  Yeah sure but I gotta find something to wear, oh my God.  What time does the party start?

    Cass looks at Frankie unsure how to answer Maggie’s question.

    Cass:  What did the text say?

    Frankie:  I’ll have to look at it.  I think you’ve got plenty of time though.

    Maggie:  Well let me get outta here.  I gotta get something.

    Cass:  I’ll text you with the time.

    Maggie:  Sure sure.  I love you.

    Frankie:  We love you, too honey.  Drive safe.

    Maggie leaves and Frankie watches her from the door, and Cass joins her, and rubs her shoulders.

    Cass:  Look at her.  She’s come such a long way.

    Frankie walks back into the living room and Cass shuts the door.

    Cass:  What’s wrong?

    Frankie:  I can’t shake this feeling Cass.  Something is off.

    Cass:  What do you think it is?

    Frankie:  I don’t know.  I can’t put my finger on it.


    Maggie gets inside of her car.  She smiles, turns the car on and the time reads 3:17pm and suddenly, unseen from the back seat, Brianna sticks a needle in Maggie’s neck injecting her with a strong sedative, and it knocks her unconscious.  

    Brianna:  Should’ve locked your doors Maggie.


    BACK AT CHRISTY’S SUITE…The alarm clock now reads 4:06pm.  Christy answers the door and it’s an unwelcome visitor, Kirkland, who walks right in.

    Christy:  I didn’t invite you in here.  At least I know you’re not a vampire.

    Kirkland:  No I’m not, and I’m not out for blood, but I want some answers.

    Christy sighs with exasperation.

    Christy:  To what?  A test?  Go to Bay City University.

    Kirkland:  I’m not talking about an exam, but a limo ride to Dr. Weston the day after my wedding reception.

    Christy:  I don’t know what you’re talking about.

    Christy turns away from Kirkland, sensing he just might be on to something.

    Kirkland:  You crash my wedding reception.  You and my dad exchange this weird look as if you know each other.  Then you take off to Salem, and get this suite on my dad’s dime?    

    Christy:  You’re just getting warm aren’t you?

    Kirkland:  That’s a question only you can answer, and I’m not leaving here until I get it!



    PART 2

    Christy:  Well that’s interesting, because I also think it’s time you get your answers.  It’s time you find out the real reason I stayed in Bay City.

    Kirkland:  You can start from the beginning.

    Christy:  Oh I’m not gonna tell you the story.

    Eric walks in and shuts the door.

    Christy:  My son is, and it’s time for me to leave you two alone.  If you’ll excuse me.

    Christy leaves Eric and Kirkland alone.

    Kirkland:  What the hell is this?  Some type of set up.  Ambush?

    Eric:  No, not exactly like that.

    Kirkland:  So you’re gonna tell me why your crazy mother stayed in Bay City when she could have left after my dad got her out of prison.

    Eric:  I’ll tell you what you need to know.


    OUTSIDE CHRISTY’S SUITE...Christy gets a text that reads “I’ve done my part.”  

    Christy:  It’s time.


    Kirkland:  What?  That’s why she went to Dr. Weston?

    Eric:  Yep.  You got the pure unadulterated truth.  Most of it.

    Kirkland:  Didn’t know you had it in you.  You did the right thing Eric.  Now I can tell Cass and Frankie what Christy’s up to.

    Kirkland turns to leave.

    Eric:  Not so fast.  Don’t you wonder how my mom got all the evidence that links your dad to Evan Frame?

    Kirkland stops as he realizes the gravity of what Eric is talking about.

    Eric:  After all it was locked in your father’s living room safe.  It was so easy to break into.  My mom needed some leverage, something to make your father work his magic.

    Kirkland:  You were the one who broke into my dad’s house.

    Eric:  Yep it was me, and I gave the evidence to my mom.

    Kirkland:  Where is it?

    Eric:  Now you know I can’t tell you that.

    Kirkland:  That’s the least you can do.  You can get from under your mother.  You don’t have to be like her.

    Eric:  But I am.  It’s like you told K.C.  I come from a lineage of sociopaths.  I’ve embraced that about myself.

    Kirkland:  I was right about you.  You’re a lunatic.

    Eric:  I’m not a lunatic, but I am crazy...crazy about you.

    Kirkland:  What?

    Eric moves closer to Kirkland and comes face to face with him.

    Eric:  Don’t act surprised Kirkland.  When I stole the evidence from your father’s living room, I kept something for myself and believe me when I say, I really enjoy watching it.  Over and over.

    Kirkland:  You freak!

    Eric:  Oh you’re gonna see...just how much of a freak I am.

    Kirkland:  You’re dating my cousin to cover up your sexuality?

    Eric:  Isn’t that why you married Charlie?

    Kirkland moves away from Eric, but Eric follows him.

    Kirkland:  You want sex don’t you?  I’m not cheating on my wife.

    Eric:  You’re gonna give me what I want.

    Eric walks over to his mother’s laptop, sticks a flash drive in the USB, and plays it.  The footage of Kirkland having sex with the bartender at Genoa City Athletic Club, and Kirkland watches in amazement.  As Kirkland walks to the laptop watching this video, and Eric walks up behind him.

    Kirkland:  What do you want from me?

    Eric whispers in his ear and massages Kirkland’s crotch.

    Eric:  You know what I want.  I want a taste what that bartender tasted.

    Kirkland grabs Eric hand, takes the flash drive, and moves it away from his crotch.

    Kirkland:  And if I don’t?

    Eric:  Then Charlie is gonna get a copy of this, and I don’t have to tell you what will happen after that.  Oh keep it.  I’ve got plenty of copies.  You could have another career on your hands if this went viral.  A lot of gay men, will want a taste of your frank.  I know I do...as often...as I can.

    Eric unzips Kirkland’s pants, looks down, and looks back in Kirkland’s face.

    Eric:  There we go.  I knew you wouldn’t disappoint.



    Frankie is in the living room, fully dressed in a gray pants with an off white blouse.  She looks at her watch which reads 6:36pm.  Cass walks in dressed in a navy blue suit, shirt, tie and shoes.

    Cass (sighs):  Are you ready?

    Frankie:  As ready as I’m ever gonna be.  

    Cass:  You seem tense.

    Frankie:  I am.  Something is just not right.

    Cass:  Maybe it’s Carl.  

    Frankie:  That’s...part of it.

    Cass:  I sent the text to Maggie about the party.

    Frankie:  Did she respond back?

    Kirkland gets closer to uncovering Christy’s plan


    PART 1


    Carl walks slowly into the living room, and he looks around, as if to take in as much ambiance of the place as he can, because he doesn’t have much time left.  Rachel walks in and observes her husband with his back turned, but Carl feels her presence.

    Carl:  This living room...this place.  So much has happened in here.  I’ve had the privilege to live in it.

    Rachel:  It was meant.  You were destined to be here.  Everything has come to this.

    Carl:  Tomorrow night, I’ll announce to all of our family and friends, that I have a brain tumor.

    Rachel massages his shoulders.

    Rachel:  I know you do meditation, but I’ve never seen you this nervous.

    Carl:  I’m not trepidatious about me.  I’m just thinking about the children.  

    Rachel:  The children are going to be okay.  They’re gonna lean on each other.

    Carl:  They’re all going to need you.

    Rachel:  And you can rest assured I’ll be here for them...all of them.

    Carl:  They’re all on my mind, but Devin Lucas is the one I need you to...love up on.  You know?



    Cory and Elizabeth are sitting at a table sipping coffees.

    Cory:  One more day.

    Elizabeth:  Don’t remind me.

    Cory:  At least they told us first.

    Elizabeth:  It doesn’t hurt any less.  I can’t bear the thought of losing daddy again.

    Cory:  Neither can I.  We gotta get through it somehow.

    Elizabeth:  Daddy came back to us last time but this seems like it’s final.

    Cory:  Why did this have to happen again?

    Elizabeth:  If you can answer why the sky’s blue then you can answer that.

    Cory:  We gotta...stick together.

    Devin Lucas walks up to them.

    Devin Lucas:  I agree.

    Cory:  And who are you?

    Elizabeth:  Dad didn’t tell you huh?

    Cory:  Tell me what?

    Elizabeth:  This is our big brother Devin Lucas Hutchins.



    Grant walks in.

    Christy:  Grant what do you want?  And don’t forget to invite yourself in.

    Grant:  You are really one piece of work aren’t you?

    Christy:  I’ve been called worse I’m sure.

    Grant:  You forget who’s paying for this suite.  I should be able to walk in anytime I want.

    Christy:  And I can go to the police anytime I want with the dossier that proves you bankrolled Evan Frame’s reign of terror.

    Grant:  You are really spoiling my mood.

    Christy:  Oh here we go again.  Let me guess, Paulina left the dashing, handsome detective Jack Snyder...for you.

    Grant smiles.

    Grant:  That day is closer than you could ever imagine.



    Paulina opens the door and sees someone holding a bouquet of flowers in front of his face.

    Paulina:  Hmmm who could that be?

    Jack moves the roses and smiles at Paulina.

    Jack:  Is the lady of the house in?

    Paulina:  It depends on who those beautiful roses are for.

    Jack:  Alright you got me.  They’re for you.

    Paulina:  Thank yoouuu.

    Jack gives them to Paulina, and he follows her inside as she places the roses in a vase with water.

    Jack:  There’s something I came here for.

    Paulina:  Hmmm for what?

    Jack:  I was wondering if you wanted to have breakfast with me tomorrow morning.

    Paulina:  I think that could be arranged, but who says breakfast has to be in the morning?

    Jack:  What other part of the day did you have in mind?

    Paulina wraps her arms around Jack and looks up into his eyes.

    Paulina:  Eating is good in all parts of the day.

    Jack:  Eating out you mean?

    Paulina:  Well...since you mentioned breakfast and all that, I was hoping for a nice, juicy piece of sausage.

    Jack:  Is it the kind that...plumps when it cooks.

    Paulina:  I used to co-own a restaurant.  I learned a thing or two about prepping meals.

    Jack:  Any place you’re at is a nice place to...eat out.

    They kiss passionately.



    Kirkland walks in and calls out for Grant. “Daaad ya here?”  He walks to the back and doesn’t see his father.  He turns to leave but notices something on Grant’s desk.  

    Kirkland:  What’s this?

    There is something on the ledger that catches his eye.







    Dr. Weston










    Kirkland:  The day after my wedding reception.

    Kirkland takes a picture of it with his cell phone and refocuses.

    Kirkland:  Center Suites?  This is Christy.  Who’s Dr. Weston?



    PART 2

    Jack and Paulina lie in bed.

    Paulina:  This gets better and better.

    Jack:  I’ll never get tired of it.

    Paulina:  Reminds me of…

    Jack:  That was a long time ago.  This feels different.  More mature.

    Paulina:  More than we were back then.  You know I hate that...that you are going through a separation with Carly.  I feel like I might be responsible.

    Jack:  Look, don’t start that.  Carly and I were having problems long before we…

    Paulina:  Before we what?

    Jack:  Fell in love again.  Truth is, Paulina, I always loved you.  Funny how we found each other again.

    Paulina:  You found me fighting with my sister in the Bay City Center fountain.

    Jack:  It seems like everything came back.  Everything I felt back then.


    Christy:  You’ve been saying for the last fifty years it seems.  Do you still have all of your teeth?

    Grant:  Not even your snarky little jokes are gonna hamper my mood.  

    Grant picks up the jump drive and looks at it with confidence.

    Grant:  Jack and Paulina better enjoy every little moment they have together, because I’m about to blow them to bits, and claim the woman I’ve always loved.


    Paulina:  Me, too.  It was like time fast forwarded.  Don’t get me wrong.  I have two wonderful children and I had a great husband, but I’m here...now....with you.

    Jack:  I don’t regret anything that happened between now and then, and I don’t regret anything that’s happening now.

    Paulina:  What about Carly?

    Jack:  Carly gave me two beautiful children and a great ride for the time that she did, but it seems that it’s over.

    Paulina:  A great ride huh?

    Jack smiles.

    Paulina:  How about this rollercoaster?

    They kiss passionately.


    Christy:  I’ll believe it when I see it.

    Grant:  Oh you’re going to see it alright.  You’re gonna see Paulina on my arm.  She and Jack will be history after I show him what’s on this drive.

    Grant gets a text from Kirkland that reads:  “Can I see you tomorrow?  We need to talk.”, and his mood changes a bit.

    Christy:  Who was that?

    Grant:  That was my son.  He says he needs to talk  to me.  I hope everything is okay with him.



    Kirkland puts his cell phone in his pocket, walks up the door of his suite, and flashes back…

    (EPISODE 215)

    Ryan:  One lie is gonna turn into another and another, and it’s the lies that are gonna break up you up.  The longer you keep lying, the more you destroy the trust.  The best chance for you to save your marriage...is to tell Charlie the truth.

    Kirkland nods his head.

    Kirkland:  I’m gonna tell her.  I’m gonna go tell Charlie everything....right now.

    Kirkland flashes back to the present, takes a deep breath, and inserts his key into the slot.  He enters and faces Charlie.

    Kirkland:  Hey babe.

    Charlie:  Hi.

    The two stay quiet waiting for the other to talk, and Charlie breaks the silence.

    Charlie:  Look I’m sorry.  I’ve been thinking all day and...you were right.

    Kirkland:  About Eric?

    Charlie:  You are just trying to...be a good husband to me, and I’m grateful and I appreciate it.  

    Kirkland:  Yeah...I love you so much Charlie.

    Charlie:  I know...more so now than ever.

    Kirkland:  Babe it’s....something I need to…

    Charlie:  No...there’s nothing you need to do.  All I want you to do is let me make it up to you.

    Charlie kneels down, unbuckles his pants and…

    Kirkland:  There’s something I...I…

    Charlie stops Kirkland by starting fellatio, then she rises up.

    Charlie:  Make love to me.


    Cory and Devin Lucas meet.

    Cory:  So you’re the famous Devin Lucas?

    Devin Lucas:  The one and only.

    Elizabeth:  Well I kinda always wanted a big brother.  I didn’t know Ryan or Evan.

    Devin Lucas:  I didn’t know any of you.






    AMELIA MARSHALL as Dr. Thomasina Todd

    FINN WITTROCK as Neil Collins

    Neil will be Dana's understudy, as he is in pre-law, but will also have a connection that will be revealed later.


    Grant Todd II will be coming later to join his mother.  He will be going by “Todd”.  He has a connection to a current Bay City resident that his mother does not approve of.



    Ryan counsels Kirkland, and Christy makes a stunning request.

    Part 1


    John and Sharlene are on the couch.  John is sitting up while Sharlene lies in his lap.  

    Sharlene:  That never gets old does it?

    John:  What?

    Sharlene:  You making love to me.

    John:  I will never tire of that.

    Gregory walks in and observes his parents.

    Gregory:  Man, this is the happiest I’ve seen you two in a long time.

    Sharlene:  We look therefore we are.

    John:  Your mother and I have gotten close all over again.  Feels much better this time.

    Gregory:  That’s...that’s great.  I wish I could feel that way about Lindsay.

    Sharlene:  Do you wanna talk about it honey?

    Gregory:  If I’m California, she’s New York.  That’s how close Lindsay and I have been lately.



    Lindsayblogentry-14971-0-65421400-1435108205_th and Charlieblogentry-14971-0-12370200-1435108376_th walk in with their shopping bags.

    Lindsay:  That was great.  Oh my God.  

    Charlie:  If I had enough money I would have brought this dress in three different colors.

    Lindsay:  The one you picked out was perfect.

    Charlie:  I kinda got what they call buyer’s remorse.  I should have gotten the baby blue one.

    Lindsay:  Oh come on we’re not gonna regret anything okay.

    Charlie:  Except...for the way I treated my husband earlier.

    Lindsay:  You know you’re very lucky to have a husband like Kirkland.  He’s so protective of you.  

    Charlie:  But there’s nothing to protect me from.  When I saw him arguing with his mother, I saw something different.  He didn’t want to crash the wedding reception.

    Lindsay:  Sometimes it’s guilt by association.  

    Charlie:  Not always though cuz.

    Lindsay:  But didn’t he hide the fact that he was Christy’s son until that day they came to Tops?  He was a barista at the coffee shop.  

    Charlie:  The more I talk to Eric, the more I find out that he’s not like his mother.

    Lindsay:  I dunno.  You have to be on your husband’s side with this.  If Kirkland wants you to stay away from Eric, then I think you should at least consider it.  Kirkland loves you.

    Charlie:  I hope that Kirkland isn’t jealous of Eric or something.  He knows how much I love him.


    CHRISTY’Sblogentry-14971-0-89197200-1435108279_th SUITE

    Ericblogentry-14971-0-91966400-1432081351_th walks in.

    Christy:  Son it’s so good to see you.  Thanks for coming.

    Eric:  What’s up mom?

    Christy:  You’re still mad at me aren’t you?

    Eric tries to fight his angry front, but to no avail…

    Eric:  No, I’m not.  I just don’t want people to look at me differently because of what we did at Tops.

    Christy:  Honey I’ve been trying to tell people that it wasn’t your idea, but we can’t control what they think.

    Eric:  I’m meeting some...nice people here in Bay City.

    Christy:  Like who?  Charlie Winthrop Hudson?

    Eric:  And K.C. Burrell.  She’s pretty cool.

    Christy looks at him with pursed lips.

    Christy:  Eric baby, your mother knows more than you think.

    Eric:  Know what?

    Christy:  You turned over the evidence you stole out of Grant Harrison’s house to me.  All I have is proof that Grant bankrolled Evan Frame’s scheme in St. Croix, but you kept something.

    Eric:  Mom what are you talking about?

    Christy:  It has to do with Kirkland Harrison doesn’t it?



    Kirklandblogentry-14971-0-07730900-1435108347_th is in an exam room, and sees Ryan, who again is dressed in blue jeans, sneakers and a button shirt.

    Kirkland:  I still can’t believe you angels wear regular clothes.  Are you the new wave?

    Ryan:  What were you expecting exactly?  Was I supposed to be flying through the sky with huge wings?

    Kirkland:  Sorry.

    Ryan:  You know, kid, you showed a lot of courage coming here today.  

    Kirkland:  I’m worried.  What if I don’t get the result that I’m looking for?  What if I’m HIV positive?  

    A doctor walks in.

    Doctor:  Hi Mr. Harrison.  I have the results.



    PART 2

    Charlie:  Kirkland and I went through a lot to get where we are.  I’m not gonna throw that away over a disagreement.

    Lindsay:  Of course not.

    Charlie:  And I’m gonna show him.

    Lindsay:  I like the sound of that.

    Charlie:  But I think you should take some of your own advice...and work things out with Gregory.



    Sharlene:  She’s probably trying to process the fact that she can’t have children.

    Gregory:  Why won’t she let me help her?

    John:  Because she’s pushing you away right?

    Gregory:  Yeah.

    John:  I’m sorry Gregory but I have to be honest.  I never had a great feeling about Lindsay Winthrop.

    Gregory:  That’s not what I need to hear right now dad.

    John:  She lied about her reasons for coming to Bay City in the first place.  When you questioned her she pushed you away then, too.  

    Sharlene:  John I don’t think you’re being fair.

    John:  Come on Sharlene, this girl is always playing with his emotions and it’s not right.

    Sharlene:  I don’t think Lindsay’s doing that.  I think she just needs some space.  Give her time.  She’ll come around.

    Gregory:  Looks like she doesn’t mind someone else occupying that space.

    John:  What are you talking about?

    Gregory:  Lindsay seemed just fine chatting it up at the Center yesterday.

    Sharlene:  Who was she with?

    Gregory:  She was with Charlie and her uncle.

    Sharlene:  Charlie’s uncle?  When did Morgan get to town?

    Gregory:  Not Morgan Winthrop.  I’m talking about Carl Hutchins’ son, Devin Lucas Hutchins.

    Sharlene:  Carl has another child?

    Gregory:  Right, and it looked he and Lindsay were getting along just fine.  She sure wasn’t pushing him away.


    Lindsay:  I don’t want Gregory treating me like I’m so fragile because I’m not.

    Charlie:  Of course you’re not, but I hope you weren’t pushing him away.

    Lindsay:  Yeah I...I was, but I’m still dealing with this.

    Charlie:  Linds you can’t let it take you out.  You can’t let it destroy what you have with Gregory.

    Lindsay:  Why would he still want me?  I can’t even have children.

    Charlie:  I don’t think he cares about that.  He loves you, and you have to let him do that.  It’s pretty much what you told me about Kirkland.  You’ve got to let Gregory love you, just like I’m going to let Kirkland do the same for me.


    Kirkland:  So...what are they?

    Doctor:  We didn’t find any of the virus in your system.  You’re negative.  I would recommend coming back in six months for another test.

    Kirkland:  Thank you doctor.  Thank you so much.

    The doctor leaves and Ryan appears again.

    Kirkland:  Thank God.

    Ryan:  I’m glad kid.  You dodged a bullet.  

    Kirkland:  I feel relieved that I’m HIV negative, but why don’t I feel like I’m out of the woods yet?

    Ryan:   Because you’re afraid of Charlie finding out about your past relationship with Scott Granger, and you sleeping with the bartender at the Genoa City Athletic Club.

    Kirkland:  I love her and I don’t wanna lose her.

    Ryan:  Then trust in the love that you two have.  That should get you through whatever fears you have.  

    Kirkland:  I do trust her.

    Ryan:  I’m not so sure about that.  

    Kirkland:  What do you mean?  Of course I trust her.

    Ryan:  You can’t keep lying to Charlie.  It’s only gonna get worse.  ---------------------------------------------

    Eric:  Mom I didn’t keep anything.

    Christy:  Don’t lie to me honey.  I love you...no matter what.  Nothing is going to change that.  

    Eric:  Mom what are you getting at?

    Christy:  When I walked into the coffee shop one day, you were paying particular close attention to Grant Harrison’s speech on the Religious Freedom Law, especially the part where he said was against gays and lesbians being discriminated against.

    Eric:  Why can’t I want equality for everyone?

    Christy:  Because you’re one of them.  You are using K.C. Burrell to hide your sexuality.  

    Eric:  I’m not doing that!

    Christy:  Eric honey it’s okay.  Whether you’re gay or straight I still love you.  I will always be your mother.

    Eric:  Mom…

    Christy:  You’re using Charlie to get to Kirkland aren’t you?  Kirkland is the one you want.

    Eric:  You think you’ve got everything figured out.

    Christy:  I know you kept the evidence of him having sex in Genoa City with another man...and I want you to use it to keep him off my tail.

    Eric is stunned at Christy’s request.

    Eric:  Of course it’s all about you isn’t it?

    Christy:  If you use that evidence, then we’ll both get what we want, because I’m sure that Kirkland hasn’t told Charlie has he?  

    Christy smiles.

    Christy:  Opportunity’s knocking.  All you have to do is open the door.

    Eric:  Opportunity?

    Christy:  We stand to benefit from this.

    Eric:  Again...about you.

    Christy:  Honey, you are about the only thing I’ve ever done right in my life.  You’re my baby that I held in my arms.  You cried and cried, and with every scream, my love for you grew.  After Douglas and James made me give you away, I was never really the same after that.  I always felt a void in my heart.  I’ve been given a second chance.  

    Christy puts her right hand on Eric’s left cheek.

    Christy:  I love you.  All I want for you is to be happy.  I want you to have everything your heart desires.  I don’t want you to turn out like me.  I want you to live a happy, productive life.  I want more for you, so yes, this is about what I want.  What I want is what’s best for my son.  Whatever it is you want, you need to go for it.

    Eric walks to the door.

    Christy:  Where are you going?

    Eric:  Gonna go out to think.

    Eric opens the door, and Grant greets him.

    Grant:  Eric.

    Eric:  You’re Kirkland’s dad aren’t you?


    Ryan:  One lie is gonna turn into another and another, and it’s the lies that are gonna break up you up.  The longer you keep lying, the more you destroy the trust.  The best chance for you to save your marriage...is to tell Charlie the truth.

    Kirkland nods his head.

    Christine Andreaslatest?cb=20081002172441 makes an appearance as Taylor Benson.

    PART 1


    John and Sharlene are sitting at a table gazing at each other.

    John:  What are you wearing?

    Sharlene:  Clothes.

    John:  So it’s your clothes that I smell?

    Sharlene:  It’s must be Gain.  You’ve seen the commercials right?

    John:  Oh the guy who is smelling the dog’s blanket.

    Sharlene:  Mi towel su towel.

    John:  I think it has something to do with the perfume.  It’s driving me crazy.

    Sharlene:  Is it now?

    John:  If it was legal to do it outside,  I would.

    Sharlene smiles.

    Sharlene:  If you didn’t have to get back to work…

    John:  This day is just getting better and better.

    Sharlene:  What happened at the hospital?

    John:  I hired a new RN.

    Sharlene:  You are on a roll aren’t you

    John:  Yep.  Brianna Jameson.



    Matt is having his vitals taken by Brianna Jamesonblogentry-14971-0-99754400-1436400871_th.

    Brianna:  128 over 74.  

    Matt:  Is that good?

    Brianna:  Yeah.

    Matt:  So can I go now?  I got work to do at the office.

    Brianna:  Are you one of those all work no play guys?

    Matt:  Haven’t had much time for leisure.  Why?

    Brianna:  I...I just...never mind.

    Matt:  No what is it?

    Brianna:  I recently moved to Bay City.

    Matt:  Really?  From where?

    Brianna:  Philadelphia.

    Matt:  Philly huh?  Big city life got to ya?

    Brianna:  Any good places to go for single gals like me?

    Matt:  I would tell you but then you would probably miss out.

    Brianna:  How?

    Matt:  You know there are...places in town that I couldn’t tell where to go and how to get there, but I definitely know the way.

    Brianna smiles.

    Brianna:  That means you’d have to take me.

    Matt:  That means you’d have to let me.

    Brianna:  I think...that could be arranged.  Provided you take care yourself.  

    Matt:  So what’s my prognosis?

    Brianna:  You’re dehydrated.  You need to drink more fluids and eat something.  

    Matt:  You have better beside manner than a lot of doctors.

    Brianna:  Flattery will get you...somewhere.  I’ll get the doctor.

    Brianna jots down Matt’s vitals on his chart, places it in the bin that holds the charts, and leaves the room.



    Brianna gets a phone call on her cell phone and she answers.

    Brianna:  Hello?....Oh…Are you sure?

    She takes a deep breath.

    Brianna:  Okay I’m coming up there.



    With Marley lying on the couch.  Tyrone opens the door to Vicky.

    Tyrone:  Hey Vicky.  Come in.

    Marley:  Hey sis.  Glad you stopped by.

    Vicky:  Yeah uh...guess my little nephew’s enjoying the warmth of your belly.  

    Marley:  I’m not technically due yet.

    Tyrone:  The actual date is in a couple days.

    Vicky:  If you don’t deliver they’re gonna have to induce labor right?

    Marley:  Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.

    Vicky:  I remember when I was pregnant with the twins.  Jake waited me hand and foot, and I wasn’t even on bed rest.  Those were the days...when we were happy.

    Marley:  Vicky is everything okay?

    Vicky:  Well, if the girls stop fighting each other, Jake decides to rethink the divorce,  and Steven decides not to date Joy, everything would be perfect.

    Tyrone:  Steven’s dating who?

    Vicky:  Joy Kramer.  The one and only.

    Marley:  Is he crazy?  He needs to get away from her before she hurts him.



    Stevenblogentry-14971-0-59543700-1430181489_th sits across the table from Joyblogentry-14971-0-46020400-1437608744_th

    Steven:  I think it was over there where you dropped your cell phone.

    Joy:  No your cousin caused me to drop it.

    Steven:  Oh did I hit a nerve?

    Joy:  Yeah because I loved that phone.

    Steven:  So you don’t like the phone I picked out?

    Joy:  That’s not what I said.  Stop putting words in my mouth.

    Steven:  So what can I put in your mouth?

    Joy:  That smooth tongue will do for now.

    Steven gets up, leans over and plants a kiss on Joy, who reciprocates.

    Steven:  Wait.

    Joy:  What is it?   You’re not finished kissing me are you?

    Steven:  No, but I didn’t get an answer.

    Joy:  To what?  

    Steven:  Being my date to Carl Hutchins’ party.


    BACK AT THE HOSPITAL…Maggieblogentry-14971-0-11465000-1435108091_th, wearing a white lab coat, walks into the exam room with a chart, where Matt is buttoning his shirt.

    Maggie:  Oh it’s you.

    Matt:  I’m happy to see you, too Dr. Winthrop.

    Maggie:  So you had a dizzy spell at the office.

    Matt:  It was nothing.

    Maggie:  You need to rest and stay hydrated.  

    Matt:  There’s been a lot going on at Cory Productions.

    Maggie:  And you need to let someone else handle things for now.  You need to be away from work for a few days.  Doctor’s orders.

    Maggie looks at Matt’s chart.

    Matt:  Can you send that nurse back in?

    Maggie (looking at the chart):  Brianna Jameson?

    Matt:  She was really nice.

    Maggie:  You need to concentrate on taking it easy and getting some rest.  You can focus on Brianna Jameson some other time.



    Brianna walks up to a doctor who is standing at this door.

    Doctor:  You’re the next of kin, so we called.

    Brianna:  What’s going on?  Is it?

    Doctor:  Yeah it’s time.  I think it would be comforting for her last moments to be spent with you.  I’ll leave you two alone.

    Brianna pushes the door open, and walks slowly toward the person in the bed.  She pulls up a chair, sits at the bedside, and clenches the person’s right hand.

    Brianna:  Mama?  Mama it’s Ellen.

    The person lying in the bed is Taylor Benson.  Taylor has tubes hooked up to her nose, as her monitor beeps. She opens her eyes and smiles.

    Taylor:  My sweet girl.  I’m so glad to see you.



    PART 2

    Tyrone:  That girl’s gonna ruin his life.

    Marley:  Call him.  I’ll talk to him.  I’ll happily fill him in on everything that Joy did to us.

    Vicky:  No...no that won’t be necessary.

    Marley:  Why not?  We have to tell him what she’s capable of.

    Vicky:  I’ve tried that.

    Tyrone:  I take it didn’t work huh.

    Vicky:  No.  Unfortunately it didn’t.  Steven is hung up on her


    Joy:  Carl Hutchins?

    Steven:  You’ve never heard of him huh?

    Joy:  No not much actually.  Just bits and pieces, but I have heard of the Cory Mansion.  Thomasina told me about it.

    Steven:  How is she?

    Joy:  I talked to her on the phone.  She’s in great spirits.  She’s doing so much better.

    Steven:  Glad to hear that.

    Joy smiles and gazes into Steven’s eyes.

    Joy:  You know I didn’t think I’d stay in Bay City when I came.  I thought it was going a bit of a pit stop for me.

    Steven:  I’d like to think I had something to do with changing your mind about it.

    Joy:  Well, I certainly didn’t expect this.

    Steven:  Expect what?

    Joy:  Liking you this much.

    Steven:  You make it sound like it’s a bad thing.

    Joy:  Noooo that’s not what I mean.  It’s actually a great thing.  Things are...finally gonna go my way.

    Steven:  I don’t care what my mother says about you.

    Joy:  So I’m sure Vicky’s told you about what happened between Tyrone and me.

    Steven:  And I don’t care.  That occurred in the past.  This is now, and all I know...right now...is that I feel so lucky to have met you.

    Joy:  Me, too.

    Steven leans over and kisses her.



    Meanwhile, John and Sharlene observe Steven and Joy…

    Sharlene:  Look at them.

    John:  Is that my nephew?

    Sharlene:  Sure looks like it.  My goodness he’s all grown up.  It just amazes me how all the kids are grown now.  Our own child.  Charlie, Kirkland.    Time sure has flown.

    John:  And I wanna spend all the rest of my time with you.

    Sharlene:  You know Gregory is such a blessing to us.  He probably saved my life.

    John:  How?

    Sharlene:  The day I gave birth to him in the shed.

    John:  How could I forget?  How could I forget anything that…?

    Sharlene:  Mood killer aren’t I?  I guess Taylor Benson is gonna be etched in our memories forever.

    Consultants:  ML Cooks and A. Washington Beeby



    John Hudson is in his office and Brianna Jameson walks in.

    Brianna:  Hi Dr. Hudson?

    John:  Yeah come on in.  

    Brianna:  HR sent me.

    John:  Right.  I like to meet all the candidates, well, as many as I can.

    Brianna:  Right.

    John:  So I went over your resume, and you did your clinicals at Mass. General?

    Brianna:  Yes.  It was a great experience.  I learned a great deal.

    John:  So what brings you from Boston to Bay City?

    Brianna:  Boston is a such a big city.  I’m a small town kinda gal you know?

    John:  Bay City General though?

    Brianna:  Yeah I...heard a lot about this hospital.  Never a dull moment.  I think you were treated here for malaria.

    John:  By a guy who shouldn’t have been practicing.

    Brianna:  Yeah I uh...heard about Fax Newman, too.  

    John:  I see you’ve done your research.

    Brianna:  Yes sir I did.  

    John:  And since you’ve done your homework, you know that we never have enough good nurses.  

    Brianna:  Very hard to come by in this field.

    John:  You’re exactly right.  There’s been some turnover here and we need somebody who’s gonna stick around.

    Brianna:  Hopefully Bay City will be a place that I’d like to stay in.  A good job could factor into that.

    John:  A job I hope that you can start today.

    Brianna:  Today?  Does this mean I….?

    John:  That’s if you want it.

    Brianna:  I’ll take it!  Thank you. I will make my presence felt here.   I promise you that.



    OUTSIDE OF JOHN’S OFFICE...Brianna makes a phone call…

    Brianna:  Mama.  It’s me.  Yeah I got the job.



    Amanda and Rachel walk into Matt’s office.  Matt is sitting at his desk.

    Matt:  Hey mom.

    Rachel:  Hi honey.

    Matt:  Amanda how was the board meeting?

    Amanda walks slowly Matt’s desk and puts papers on it.

    Amanda:  It was...interesting to say the least.

    Matt:  What is this?

    Amanda:  The contract.

    Matt:  For the merger?

    Amanda:  Yes.

    Matt:  Are sure you can trust Iris?

    Rachel:  I sure wouldn’t.

    Amanda:  That’s why this contract was drawn up.  She has to agree to be the co-CEO of the new company.

    Rachel:  You’d be having to watch your back so she doesn’t stab you in it.

    Amanda:  She said she’d think about it, but my offer has an expiration date.  

    Rachel:  You’ve done well Amanda.

    Amanda:  She needs the connections that we have to grow her brand.

    Matt:  What are you gonna do when Iris tries to betray you?

    Rachel:  Carl and I have come up with a plan.  Iris won’t betray you.

    Matt:  What about Paulina and Sandy?

    Amanda:  My sister and my other brother are okay with it.   I’ve gotten their written agreements.  I need yours now.  

    Matt:  Well you know you’re also going to need the board to sign off on it, too.

    Amanda:  That’s the problem.  One of the board members retired effective immediately.  

    Matt:  So we can’t execute the deal until we have all seven board members’ signatures.

    Amanda:  First we gotta find another board member.

    Matt gets up and and blinks his eyes.

    Amanda:  Matt what’s wrong?

    Matt:  Nothing I just feel a little...hungry.

    Matt tries to walk and stumbles.

    Rachel:  Something’s wrong with you.  We need to get you to the hospital.

    Matt:  Mom.

    Amanda:  Mom’s right.  You need to get checked out.



    Carl opens the front door and Lorna walks in with an envelope.

    Lorna:  I got it.

    Lorna gives him the envelope and Carl reads its contents.

    Carl:  This is exactly what I was hoping for.   Thank you.

    Lorna:  Are you...ready for your party?

    Carl:  As ready as I’ll ever be.  How’s Devin Lucas adjusting?

    Lorna:  I don’t think he’s having any problems whatsoever getting acclimated to Bay City.





    Devin Lucas opens the door and Iris walks in.

    Devin Lucas:  Sorry I haven’t been in touch with you.  I went to see my dad.

    Iris:  Really?  About?

    Devin Lucas:  Just...just some family stuff.

    Iris:  I’m really really sorry about Carl.

    Devin Lucas:  Is that right?  I thought you’d be jumping for joy being that you tried to shoot him at his wedding.

    Iris:  I’ve done my time for that.  It was a learning experience.

    Devin Lucas:  And exactly what did you take from it?  How to be a better shot?

    Iris:  I saw the pain on Rachel’s face when I heard her say he had a brain tumor, and she’s already had so much loss in her life, as have I...so yes I’m sorry that your father’s dying.  My father died, too.

    Devin Lucas:  It’s tough, but I didn’t call you over here to give your fake condolences for Carl.

    Iris:  Well excuse me for being concerned.

    Devin Lucas:  What did you decide about Amanda’s merger proposal?


    PART 2


    Amanda waits with Matt.

    Matt:  Come on Amanda I’m not three you and mom don’t have to wait here with me.

    Amanda:  Will you let me be concerned about you?  I am your sister.

    Matt:  I’m fine okay.  I don’t even know why I agreed to come here.

    Amanda:  Because mom and I weren’t gonna give up until you did.

    A nurse walks in with a chart.

    Nurse:  This is...Matthew Cory?

    Matt:  Yep.

    Nurse:  Is this your…

    Matt:  Sister.

    Nurse:  Well sister…

    Amanda:  Name’s Amanda.

    Nurse:  Amanda I’ll need you to wait outside.  I need to examine your brother.

    Amanda:  I’ll be right out here.

    Amanda leaves the room as the nurse retrieves a blood pressure strap.

    Matt:  Before you poke and prod me, can I get your name?

    Brianna:  Oh sorry.  Brianna.



    Amanda talks to Rachel.

    Rachel:  How’s Matthew?

    Amanda:  Stubborn as always.  Anything on Iris yet?


    Iris:  I haven’t decided yet.

    Devin Lucas:  Well you need to make some type of decision because I’m sure Amanda’s offer’s not gonna stay on the table.

    Iris:  If I accept this offer, KBAY could become a powerful company.

    Devin Lucas:  But you and I were supposed to take over the company and make it powerful.

    Iris:  You have to trust me on this.  I have a place for you in the company.

    Devin Lucas:  Doesn’t it make you wonder why Amanda proposed a merger to you?  Out of the blue?

    Iris:  I’m considering everything here.  

    Devin Lucas:  Sounds like you’re double crossing me.

    Iris:  No.  No that’s not it at all.  You have to trust me on this.  I know exactly what I intend to do.

    Devin Lucas:  Which is?

    Iris:  You’ll have to wait and see won’t you?

    Iris leaves and Devin Lucas makes a phone call.

    Devin Lucas:  Hi it’s me.

    The person on the other end is Carl.

    Carl:  So what happened?


    Devin Lucas:  She did exactly as you said she would.


    Carl:  You can’t trust her, especially when it comes to Cory Productions.   Don’t worry son, I’ll see to it that Iris will be neutralized.


    Devin Lucas:  Are you at home?


    Carl:  Yes...with your mother.



    Carl hangs up and walks back into the living room where Lorna awaits.

    Lorna:  What do you plan on doing with what I gave you?

    Carl:  Don’t worry your pretty little head about it.

    Lorna:  So you’re not gonna let me in on this plan?

    Carl:  Not completely, but I will tell you that what’s in this envelope has been twenty years in the making.  It’s time I finally stick it to Grant Harrison.
