Previously on Point Palace:


- The familiar students that returned were Alley and John who were believed to be dead by Carrie and Dylan. They are both happy to see Blake and London. The reason why they returned was because of the explosion and its impact on their friends. Officer Wendell and Detective Miltner arrive to talk to Dr. Quarr. Blake overhears everything and demands to know how many people have died so far. Trella, Brandon, and others were involved. Blake accidentally has the matches fall out of his pocket and Det. Miltner picks it up for further examination.

- Carlos takes Agatha's advice on deciding to take a break from the hospital. He gets a visit from his coworkers from "Blue Crystal." They have some good news for him. C.C. and him have been nominated for awards for their work on the show. It means that Carlos would have to go LA They also try to convince him to rejoin the show. Can he disobey Jenny and leave her behind?

- Alexia admitted to Tanisha that when Owen comes to, if he does, that they might have to leave because their mother has breast cancer. Ginny makes a visit to see Owen, and Tanisha confronts her to tell her that he chose her so maybe she should get over him. Ginny asks why she is gloating. Ginny also tells her that she may have Owen but has no dignity.

- Victor calls in to check on Carrie through Dylan. Dylan warns her that she's going to be fine and there's no need to call again!

- Nate runs into Chordelia at the Palace Cafe. She wants to see him again but he wants nothing to do with her. He tries explaining to her that the previous night was nothing but just "fun."

- Ava goes to classes. Her one male professor reminds her too much of James so she excuses herself to leave. When no is around in the hallway, she breaks down in agony.

- Blake sits alone in his office to reflect upon everything that has happened. Bryan pays him a visit and tells him very bad news. It turns out that Nan died. Bryan then threatens him by saying that he will take over Nan's place and will be ten times worse than Nan ever was.

- Gloria comes in to see Lenvy. Her condition seems to be stable. She is sort of talking but is burnt/cut badly. There are bandages all around her. Will tells Gloria that it may be their last time to see her. Gloria tells her daughter that she will always love her no matter what. Then Will says a tearful good bye to Lenvy. She asks "how could you love a monster?" Then her IV monitor flatlines while Gloria has doctors rush in to help her but it's too late because she dies.

(The scene of when Lenvy dying was playing through Will's mind as he watched her casket lowered into the ground. Gloria was by his side and gave him a lot of the support that he needed. The flight to Lexington, Massachusetts was not one that he wanted to take. The cold windy air began to sting his face. Gloria begins to nudge on his arm.)

Gloria:
Would you like to say anything about Lenvy?

Will:
It's okay. I don't really know anyone that well.

Gloria:
Are you sure?

Will:
Yeah. I've already said my peace with her.

Gloria:
I think that I need to speak about my little girl.

Will:
You'll do fine.


(Gloria stands in front of the soon to be grave.)

Gloria: (to Lenvy's family members and other friends)
I want to thank you all for coming. It's sad that we have to be here because of these tragic events.
In my mind I want to believe that everything happens for a reason. This however, was certainly not fair at all. I don't want to sound selfish but my daughter was taken away from me. I'm never going to be able to see Lenvy grow up anymore then she did. She made me so proud, but now there's no way that she can make me any prouder.


(She begins to break down in tears.)

Gloria:
She's gone. My baby is gone.


(Will stands up and hugs her.)

Will:
This will end the ceremony. If you are all interested, we'll have be having a wake at the house.


(People begin to exit. Will turns to the already buried casket.)

Will:
Goodbye Lenvy.


- - - Carlos100.jpgAgatha100.jpgNick100.jpg
(Back at the hospital, where Jenny has not waken up yet, Carlos talks to the only person that truly understands him at this point.)

Agatha:
She has made some progress.

Carlos:
By progress do you mean not waking up from her coma?

Agatha:
She's still breathing. It's almost as if she's taking a long nap.

Carlos:
Is that how you sugar coat things for your family members?

Agate:
Pretty much. In my opinion I have seen much worse, and I have faith in your girlfriend.

Carlos:
Thanks.

Agatha:
Anything else that's bothering you?

Carlos:
I have tons of problems. We all do. Which one would you like to talk about? The fact that the person who hates me the most holds the life of the one that I love in his hands and at any point could turn the tables on me.

Agatha:
Nick would never do that. He's a professional.

Carlos:
Yeah right. Also, I was offered some pretty good news.

Agatha:
Oh yeah? Like what?

Carlos:
My character was nominated for an award for some show. Which means that if I wanted to I would have to go Los Angeles.

Agatha:
That really doesn't seem like a problem to me. More like a blessing. Not a lot of people get jobs as an actor and then to get nominated for something, well that's just a blessing.

Carlos:
It would mean that I would have to leave Jenny behind.

Agatha:
She's going to be okay Carlos. You have to believe in her.

Carlos:
So you're saying that I should go?

Agatha:
Like I said, believe.

Carlos:
Thanks.


(Dr. Quarr begins to eavesdrop from far behind like always. He then gets an idea. He sneaks into Jenny's room and over looks her.)

Nick:
Carlos will be going away. I'm going to have to do everything in my power to make sure that you're all right. Your little boyfriend just gave me a great idea. And you're the prize!


- - -board2.jpgDylan100.jpg
(One of the most heated meetings was yet to start when Blake slams his fists down on the table to calm everyone down.)

Bryan:
Where's our new Presidential Assistant? Dylan I believe his name is.

Blake:
He may have some of his own personal problems to attain to.

Lanoi:
Or he could have died along with the others.

Benjamin:
Let's not think negative. Surely enough he's okay.


(Dylan makes his way through the door.)

Blake:
Dylan. Thank you for coming. I'm glad to see that everything's all right.

Dylan:
Sorry for being late.

Bryan:
And why were you late?

Dylan:
Because my girl friend is in a deep sleep at the hospital! Any more questions?


(Dylan sits down and the meeting begins.)

Blake:
We have a serious problem on our hands. Numerous students have died and many more, like Carrie, are injured.

Lanoi:
Then what are we going to do about it? We can't just send them some sort of gift basket or a bouquet of flowers!

Blake:
That's already been done. I wanted to hear some of your ideas.

Dylan:
Why not see if we can pay for all of the hospital damages.

Benjamin:
That could be a possibility, but then that would leave many clubs and organizations, to be unfunded. Which would be a bad situation on our part.

Lanoi:
What exactly caused this explosion in the first place?

Blake:
Detective Miltner and Officer Wendell are looking into that.

Bryan:
In speaking of Detective Miltner, he actually told me some very interesting information that I'm allowed to discuss with you all.

Blake:
How exactly did you come across this information?

Bryan:
That's really none of your concern.

Lanoi:
Please go on Bryan.

Bryan:
Well, it turns out that, someone is thinking that it was arson!

Benjamin:
Arson?!

Bryan:
Yep. He also found a pair of matches that came out of Blake's pocket. You don't smoke Blake, so why the hell would you have them?

Dylan:
What exactly are you implying?

Bryan:
I'm implying that I think Blake had something to do with it.

Blake:
That's just down right wrong and just typical of you!

Bryan:
Don't worry about trying to tell me that I'm wrong. I've already gave Leon Kain the story of the century. Maybe the headlines should read, President Accused of Arson. Leon is probably waiting for your story as we speak.

Blake:
I would like everyone to know how much of a liar Bryan Daniels really is. This is just his ridiculous efforts to try and out me. It's becoming very pathetic.

Bryan:
I'm just fighting for Nan's sake. It's what she would have wanted. Rest her soul.


- - -Alexia100.jpgtanisha100.jpgNate100.jpg
(In one of her classes that she has been skipping lately due to her circumstances in which she would be excused, Alexia begins to walk out. She plans on going to the hospital to visit Owen, before she does, she pulls out her cell phone to call Tanisha.)

Tanisha:
Hey.

Alexia:
Just wanted to let you know that I'm on my way back from class. If you want to go you're more then welcome to.

Tanisha:
I might do that but I have some good news.

Alexia:
Yeah?

Tanisha:
Owen woke up a few hours ago.

Alexia:
Really? When did this happen?

Tanisha:
A few hours ago. Dr. Quarr informed me. He's sleeping now though.

Alexia:
Great. I'll be there as soon as possible.


(She accidentally bumps into someone. It turns out to be Nate.)

Alexia:
Sorry.

Nate:
It's okay.


(She begins to walk away from him. He checks her out and likes what he sees.)

Nate: (calling her attention)
Excuse me?

Alexia:
Yeah?

Nate:
I'm new here. My name is Nate Mavick. And you are...?

Alexia:
Alexia. I actually have to get going though. Are you lost or something?

Nate:
Yeah. I'm looking for the President's quarters.

Alexia:
If you're looking to speak to Blake Hammerton, then you're going to be waiting for a long time. He's really busy because of what happened.

Nate:
You must be talking about the explosion.

Alexia:
You're either really smart or really observant.

Nate:
So I've been told. I think that it would be a smart idea if while I'm waiting to talk to him, that maybe you and I could go and have some fun.


(Alexia is appalled by his comment. She responds by slapping him across the face.)

Alexia:
That was the worst and most vulgar pick up line ever!

Nate:
I was only asking for a date...and possibly more.

Alexia:
You're getting turned down.

Nate:
No girl has ever turned me down before.

Alexia:
Then I'm more than happy to be the first.


(Alexia gets in her car to go to the hospital. Nate looks on. She's probably someone that he'll have to conquer or just a leap to someone else.)

- - -Ava100.jpgGinny100.jpgSky100.jpg
(Later in the evening, Ava decides to actually go out. She could have stayed within her home but instead she wanted to be near some people. Ava goes to the Palace cafe.)

Ava:
Ginny it's good to see that you're working.

Ginny:
Yeah. We've been kind of busy lately. Where have you been? I haven't seen you here in weeks.

Ava:
I've been around. How's life treating you?

Ginny:
The fact that I was dumped for another girl, pretty crappy. What about you?

Ava:
Same. Guys suck don't they.

Ginny:
Yep.

Ava:
I'll just get a Double Grande Mochaly please.

Ginny:
Coming right up.


(Ava finds a quiet place to sit down. She waits for her drink to arrive. While she is waiting she notices a musician playing Indie rock that is appropriate for a college coffee house café she thought to herself. Then her drink is laid down on her table.)

Ava:
Thanks Ginny.


(Ava turns around to find that it's not Ginny but someone else. A thin brunette girl who was standing in line behind her.)

Ava:
Why do you have my drink?

Sky:
It's on me.

Ava:
You paid for it?

Sky:
Of course. I heard your story about what happened and I felt bad for you. Sky Safford.


(Sky extends her hand to greet her.)

Ava:
My name's Ava.


(Ava shakes back with a smile.)

Sky:
Cecilenelli. I've read about you in the paper.

Ava:
Guess I've been pretty famous around here.

Sky:
You seemed pretty interesting so I thought that this would be the best way to get to know an interesting person such as yourself.

Ava:
It's a start. You really didn't have to.

Sky:
I wanted to. Which man left you?

Ava:
Professor James Vaughne. He left me high and dry. You probably read about him in the papers or you may have even had him for class.

Sky:
Look at it this way, you won't have to get into any scandalous situations anymore.

Ava:
That's a good way to look at it. You really got my mind off of him. Lately, even I couldn't do that.

Sky:
What are new friends for?


(Ava raises her drinks.)

Ava:
To hating men.

Sky:
To hating men.


(They clink their glasses and sip to the start of a new friendship.)

- - -quadconfront.jpg
(Dylan looks at Carrie who still hasn't woken up yet. The heated meeting was just that, heated.)

Dylan:
Guess what happened today. Bryan blamed Blake for the explosion. He's the new Nan Sheridan in town. Or at least that's what he's trying to make himself out to be.


(She doesn't respond to him talking.)

Dylan: (to himself)
What's the use?


(Dylan goes to get some fresh air. He opens the door and notices John and Alley standing in front of him. For a second, he thinks that he is hallucinating. He touches both their arms and their faces.)

Alley: (annoyed)
What are you doing?

Dylan: (amazed)
You're real. You're actually alive!

John:
Of course. We left before the explosion happened.

Dylan:
We all thought you were dead.

Alley:
How?

Dylan:
Carrie got a text message on her phone. It was some sort of news update or something. It said that a bus going to Philadelphia had crashed into a lake and there were no known survivors.

Alley: (realizing)
Oh. And you thought that

Dylan:
You and John were on that bus.

John:
We only told you that we were going to Philly because we thought that if anyone was trying to look for us or try to contact us that they wouldn't find us. We went to Florida instead.

Dylan:
Pretty clever.

Alley:
We heard about Carrie.

Dylan:
It's very sad. And you two have the most reason to gloat over it. After all that happens.

John:
Now what kind of a person would that make us?

Dylan:
Human. It's not like you wouldn't have thought about it or anything.

John:
I'm sorry.

Alley:
You don't mind if I go in to talk to her do you?

Dylan:
She won't listen but you can try.


(Alley walks into the room and looks at unconscious Carrie.)

Alley:
For once you get to listen to every damn word I'm going to say because you have no where to go!


- - -tanisha100.jpgOwen100.jpgNick100.jpg
(On another floor, in another hospital room, Owen wakes up from his nap. Tanisha is standing in front of him.)

Tanisha:
Hey you.

Owen:
Hey.

Tanisha:
Alexia's on her way.

Owen:
Good.

Tanisha:
How do you feel?

Owen:
What?

Tanisha:
I asked how you felt.


(Owen looks confused. The reason is because all he hears is ringing when she's talking. He does however catch what she's trying to say.)

Tanisha:
Are you okay?

Owen:
I feel fine.


(Dr. Quarr comes in to check on Owen.)

Nick: (to Owen)
You know that this girl has been here almost every day. You're pretty lucky to have her.

Owen:
Yep.

Nick:
I just wanted to let you know that we're going to run a few tests. Then you'll be free to go.


(Owen shakes his head. He really can't hear what exactly Dr. Quarr just said. Hopefully the whole hearing thing is just temporary Owen thinks to himself.)

- - -quadconfront.jpg
(Back in Carrie's room, Alley looks over Carrie. Her air supply breaks the silence that is between them.)

Alley:
How is that you get to look like the victim once again? I should have stopped talking to you whenever I found out that you were seeing Will behind my back! I forgave you way too easily. Then you left Dylan and you left me as a friend. You didn't even say good bye to anyone except for him. At least when John and I wanted to leave, we told you. The circumstances were different though.


(Alley begins to shake her head.)

Alley:
I hate you so much. We could never be friends again. It's because you take everything that's mine. You took Will and then you had to take Dylan. Even though you claimed that you didn’t want them, deep down inside I know you did. Maybe I should take something away from you. Like your life. That's my number one fantasy right now!


(Alley touches her air supply tank that is keeping Carrie alive.)

Alley:
It's so tempting. This would be the best opportunity to do it too.


(Alley places her hand back to her side and shakes her head.)

Alley:
But it's not worth it.


(Alley turns to walk away but accidentally gets her foot caught on one of the wires that's hooked up to the air supply machine. She tries letting it loose but the alarm begins to go off as Carrie's IV wires also fall out. A doctor, a nurse, John, and Dylan walk in to what looks like Alley trying to kill Carrie.)

I really like Agatha. I think this is the first time she had this many lines.

I see you got Nick/Carlos/Jenny triangle in the works. I'm all for it. I love Dr. Quarr and Carlos, I wonder what Nick is going to do.

I see Bryan is going to be the male version of Nan. I am really starting to get into him. I see Nan is no where to be found. I pray she is not dead.

I was really intrigued with the Ava/Skye scene. Based on our conversations I think I know where you are going with this one. Thumbs up ;) . It was so nice to see Ava smile. I could really feel her smiling. I think Ava is one of my fav female characters next to Nan

I am also glad John and Alley are back.

I see Owen has lost some hearing, interesting, can't wait to see where you take that one.

The cliffhanger was a classic Pointe Palace moment.
