Endgame- Episode 34-36
Thursday, May 17, 2007
The show opens up at ELQ, where we see Tracy sitting on her desk while on the phone in her office. She is on the phone making a business transaction for the company, unaware that Edward is just outside.
"No Alexandra, I don't mind putting off our meeting until tomorrow. Just be sure you have the numbers and the contracts ready to sign. Alright, goodbye." Tracy hangs up the phone and takes a deep breath.
"Well, I'm surprised to see you still being active here at the office." Edward says making his way into the office.
"And why wouldn't I be? You fail to remember that I am now the CEO of ELQ. Of course my time would be spent here."
"Well, considering your little squabbles with your hoodlum of a husband Spencer, and his attraction to Skye, I thought you would be too flustered to keep going." Edward smiles a little while trying to get under Tracy's skin.
Tracy gets up and moves behind her desk. She looks up at her father and say, "For your information Daddy, what goes on in my personal life outside of work does not pertain to the work environment. I am perfectly capable of handling everything that is ELQ without having personal problems get in my way. Unlike you, I can stay focused." Tracy then points towards the door for her father to leave.
"Well, from the looks of these numbers, I can pretty much say that you sure are bringing your personal life into the workplace, Tracy."
"Daddy," she begins, starting to sound exasperated. "I am doing what is best for ELQ, and your opinion no longer counts for what goes on here since you decided to leave the business and sell it to the highest bidder."
"Need I remind you, Tracy, that even I didn't even get the chance to make that decision since you stole my company from me. And though I am no longer the CEO of ELQ, I can certainly take it away from you just as easily as you got it when you swindled your way of getting Carly's proxy to get it. I am the Chairman of the board and pissing me off will surely impact the futures of Dillon and Ned."
"Come on daddy, you obviously came by here to either gloat or have something on your mind. Now which is it so you can leave?"
"I want to get ELQ back on the forefront once again. I want to be a part of the company in an active capacity. I want don't want to see the company that I have been CEO of for many years go down the drain just because of your dysfunctional relationship with Luke and your inability to keep things under control!"
Shaken by her father's words, Tracy tries to remain strong. "You really think that I can't keep this company on track?"
"No, you can't. Not without my help," he says with much assurance. "ELQ will fall under you, but with help, my help, we can bring this company back to the glory days of yesteryear."
Tracy holds back her tears. All she has ever wanted was her father's approval, but she realizes that she may never get that. "So the truth comes out. All I have ever…you know what daddy. Tell me how you really feel."
"Admit it, Tracy. Without my help, ELQ will not survive. Now, are you in this, yes or no?"
Tracy stares at Edward long enough before giving him a final answer. She tells him yes, but on one condition...that he remembers who is in charge, and that is her. If he does the slightest thing to undermine her, she will get rid of her faster than when he tried to cut her out of his will years ago. Edward accepts her conditions and the two both shake hands on the deal.
Carly steps into her house after a long day of work with lots of bags in her hands. She calls for Michael twice, then realizes that he has soccer club tonight, and took Morgan along with him. After putting her bags down, she goes over to the phone and sees she has 15 messages….at least 10 of them are from Nikolas. She's tempted to call him, but decides against it, especially since she doesn't know how to handle what he's done. She lugs her bags upstairs in a hurry. She's got something very important to do.
Lucas arrives at the PCPD to see Mac. After waiting for 10 minutes, he is finally able to meet with him. Mac informs him of a new lead regarding the hit and run case, something that Lucas is a little happy with. Lucas explains that he knows this will take some time, and doesn't want to feel like he's rushing the police, but wants whoever was responsible for this to pay greatly. Mac assures him that they will find the culprit or culprits and will have the book thrown at them. As Lucas gets ready to leave, Mac hands Lucas a copy of an important report. When Lucas opens the file, he sees that Brandon's body has been released by the coroner's office. He can now finalize the funeral arrangements. A tear slowly falls down his cheek as he thanks Mac. An officer then arrives to get Mac's input on the recent shootings down at the docks.
At Bobbie's, she struggles with the realization that she could be going to jail. She didn't mean to kill Brandon….it just happened. Noah comes into the room and tries to comfort Bobbie. She thanks him for putting her wellbeing first and being there for her in her time of need. Noah admits that he chose to help Bobbie against his better judgment, but cannot allow the woman he loves to spend the rest of her life in jail. Noah tells Bobbie that they've been through a lot this past year, but he's stood by her through it all. That means something to him and he hopes it means something to her as well. Bobbie admits that it means a lot to her. Noah then surprises Bobbie by getting down on one knee and asking her to marry him. She's taken back a bit by his sudden proposal, but Noah admits it has his advantages. Not only will he be able to spend the rest of his life with the woman that he loves, but he is also protecting her another way. Married couples can't be forced to testify against each other, and if they get married, she'll be protected by spousal privilege. Bobbie accepts Noah's proposal.
Meanwhile, Carly sits on her bed with tears in her eyes. She's under a lot of stress right now and just feels a mess. She continues looking at the clock while pacing back and forth before suddenly moving towards her nightstand. She grabs the item but refuses to look at it. After some internal prodding, she looks down and sees a …..
