(At the Cody Memorial Hospital, Stephanie continues to listen to her pink iPod. Her back is turned away from the door. A hand touches her shoulder. She gasps in shock but smiles when she sees Agatha.)
Oh my god you scared me.
I heard about what happened.
Well…that matter is being dealt with as we speak. Is Doctor Quarr around?
He’s busy in his office. Usually he would be making me do so many numerous tasks but he hasn’t. Though I’m not complaining. If he needs space, then I’ll give it to him.
(Agatha returns to the nurse's station to pick up a few forgotten items. Before she leaves, she hesitates to walk into Nick’s office. She lets herself in to find the back of his chair.)
Don’t mind me, doctor. Just grabbing a few things and then I’m on my way out. I did however would like to say goodbye. And you will be hearing from my lawyer.
(Agatha notices Dr. Quarr doesn’t respond.)
I said, I am just grabbing a few items and then I am on my way. Plus you'll be in court soon.
(Dr. Quarr still doesn’t respond.)
Look, I know we now have our differences, but that is no reason for you to give me the cold shoulder.
(Agatha goes to swing the chair around to have Dr.Quarr face her. She is horrified when she sees the doctor dead with a phone cord wrapped around his throat. Agatha screams her head off.)

(After waking up from a passionate evening with Sky, Ava begins to think about Nate. Flashbacks are shown between the two, but Ava suddenly snaps out of it.)
Ava: (to herself)
What am I going to do?
(Ava suddenly has a thought of breaking up with Sky, but cannot bring herself to do so. She looks over at Sky.)
I know that deep down, you really care for me. But I don’t know if this is love or desperation on your part.
(Sky starts to moan.)
No, just sleep. It’s gonna be alright……oh please let everything be alright between us. All of us.

(Meanwhile, Dylan notices how distraught Carrie is about Victor and Juliana taking off. He uses this to his advantage to try to have his way with her.)
I just don’t understand how Victor could do this to you. It’s as if he didn’t even take your feelings into consideration.
I have plenty of other things to think about at the moment, if you don’t mind, just sitting here and talking about Victor is getting nothing accomplished.
Well, still, I think it is best that you should open up about this, especially with me.
Don’t you get it? Victor was someone who I thought I was close to. And then to just leave after everything was said and done…it turns out that we are blood related! It's sickening just to even think about it.
(Dylan sees Carrie beginning to cry and goes sits beside her.)
Hey take it easy. It’s going to be alright. I didn’t realize that this has upset you so badly. Maybe it is best that we don’t talk about Victor right now, and try to figure out a way to take your mind off of him.
(Carrie slowly looks up into Dylan’s eyes. She starts to see him in a whole new way, and starts to lean in as if she were about to kiss him.)
- - -
(Elsewhere, Mary Ann and Michael discuss whether or not to call Carrie to find out how she is.)
I’m worried about that girl, you know.
I know. So am I.
Juliana ruined everything. She wasn't supposed to tell Carrie under any circumstances!
Ok, take a deep breath, and calm down.
Calm down? How the hell can I calm down? Our world has been turned upside down. I know that what I did to Juliana was wrong but you forgave me. We all were going to look past my mistake.
Michael, I know how you feel, but you cannot let Victor or Juliana get to you like this! Now, look, maybe we cannot undo the damage that was already done, but we certainly can try to fix up the rest. Carrie hates us for not telling her but it was sort of hard to explain to her that her father raped another woman when he had a drinking problem years ago!
How do you mean?
Be there for Carrie and maybe it is a good idea to tell her the rest of the story.
I don’t know, Mary Ann. I just don’t think she can handle this news. We've kept with this lie so much.
It can’t be worse than it already is.
(picks up the phone and hands it to Michael)
(Michael starts to dial. Carrie and Dylan begin to kiss each other, but are interrupted when the phone starts to ring.)
Dylan….can I speak with Carrie?
Now is not a very good time, Michael.
I want to speak to him.
Dylan, this is urgent. Let me talk to my daughter.
(Dylan hands Carrie the telephone.)
Hi, Michael. Michael seems to suit you because dad isn't the word to go by anymore.
Michael’s fine, even though I am your true father. I was just calling to check up on how you were doing.
How do you think? I found out that the first love of my love was really my uncle. That could’ve been stopped if we all we knew the truth.
I’m so sorry about all of this. I truly didn’t want to see you hurt.
As much as this whole situation sickens me, I don’t want to-
Listen, there is another reason why I called. I mean, I…I know this isn’t the best time to tell you, but you have to know something else.
That sounds very vague. Let me guess, I’m really an alien? What’s going on?
What happened with Julianna was obviously a mistake. I used to be an alcoholic and I raped Juliana when she was young but everyone forgave me and looked past it. It was a moment of weakness, your mother and I were on the verge of being separated, so when it happened of course we had to keep it from everyone. We could’ve been killed. Her family is dangerous. Except there's more to the story….Julianna had twins, but one went up for adoption.
What??!! I don’t believe you!
I’m sorry, Carrie. But it’s true. You weren’t the only child. You have a twin.
(Carrie appears stunned, and suddenly drops the phone to the floor.)
Carrie? Carrie, are you there?
(Dylan hangs up the phone.)
What is it, Carrie? What did Michael say to you?
My father was an alcoholic rapist. And then there's Lenvy….Lenvy is my twin, Dylan. She really is my twin!

(John is in his living room playing with L.J. He cannot be more thrilled that he has L.J. in his life. Just then, Alley walks by the room, and sees the two enjoying their time together. John looks up and sees Alley forcing a smile.)
Play with your toys, honey.
(John places L.J. in her crib. He then makes his way over to Alley. John hugs her but stops.)
What’s the matter, sweetheart?
I don’t know what you mean?
What I mean is that I see you over here looking as if the world is coming to an end.
I’m fine, John, really. You…and L.J. seem to be having a wonderful time together.
Well, yes. Any reason why I shouldn’t?
(Alley just stares at John and does not give him an answer.)
Wait…you are not gonna stand here and tell me you are jealous of the time I am spending with L.J., are you?
No! No, of course not. I’m fine, and I would appreciate it if you didn’t bother me with this.
I’m not through talking to you until you tell me for sure what is wrong with you.
I said I’m fine!
Go be with your daughter.
(John goes back to play with L.J., and Alley suddenly walks away. John looks up to see Alley gone, but then focuses his attention back on L.J. again.)

(At Will’s place, Mika is trying to convince Will that it is best that they don’t see each other anymore.)
You can’t be serious.
Will, you and I come from so many different worlds. There’s no way that we can be together.
Opposites attract. Isn’t that how the old saying goes?
You know what I mean. There is no way that I will be accepted into your life by your friends or your family. I’m sorry, but I think it’s wise to end this before it goes too far.
(Mika starts to head out the door, but Will grabs her arm before she can get away.)
What do you think you are doing?
Stopping you from going out that door.
Sorry, babe. But, I have fallen madly, deeply in love with you. And there is not a damn thing you can do about that!

(Carlos and Jenny are sitting in his apartment lying on the bed.)
Hey there, sleepyhead.
Well, hey. Sleep well?
Very much so.
(Carlos and Jenny start to kiss, when a knock at the door interrupts them.)
I’ll get rid of whoever that is.
(Carlos goes to open the door, and C.C. is standing outside. Before Carlos can shut the door on her, she enters.)
C.C., what the hell are you doing here?
You didn’t really think I wouldn’t pay the two lovebirds a visit now that loveable Nick is out of the picture, it was such a ripe opportunity to do so.
Damn it C.C. Wait what? How is Nick out of the picture?
No, I mean, really, Carlos. You two certainly had something to gain from Nick’s death, now didn’t you? Trying to come between you and your precious Jenny. Why wouldn’t you want him dead? Both of you?
Yeah it’s all over the news. You two must have been having disgusting victory sex over it.
You really have the audacity to stand there and throw accusations around, when you and Nick were in cahoots to try to get us apart.
Don’t you dare try to turn this around on me, sweetheart. Nick certainly was a bastard in his own right. No wonder you two seemed like a perfect fit. You’re nothing but a bitch in heat, anyway.
You sick, twisted, little…
(Jenny lunges at C.C. but is stopped by Carlos.)
Ok, that’s enough! Both of you! C.C., I’m gonna kindly ask you to leave, otherwise I will forcefully throw you out.
You really do like to manhandle women. My ankle still hurts from the last time you got rough with me. All because of her might I add.
(grabs C.C.’s arm)
Fine, play it your way.
(opens door and is stunned)
Detective Miltner! What are you doing here?
Sorry to bust in on you, Carlos, but I have questions I need to ask all of you concerning Nick’s death.
(C.C., Jenny, and Carlos look at one another, not knowing how to react.)

(Meanwhile, Alley pays Blake a visit in his office after leaving John with L.J., and appears distraught.)
You seem upset, what’s the matter?
Blake, you are the only one I can talk to about this. I wanted to tell John, but it’s so hard to face him with this.
Just take it easy and tell me what is going on.
I thought it would be so good for John to have L.J. But now that I think about it, I don’t think this was the right decision at all.
What are you trying to tell me, Alley? That I was right. That L.J. would’ve been better if she were with me?
Don’t you see, Blake? Having L.J. around is now going give me responsibilities….responsibilities that I am simply not ready to handle. I can’t deal with a baby around the room. I mean, I always thought John and I would wait a little while before we start a family. I can’t bear this. Not now. In my mind, you would’ve been the better choice to raise L.J.
It’s a little too late to be making this decision now, don’t you think?
What do you mean?
You should have thought all of this before you started your tirade of defending John. And now, there is nothing you can do to rectify your selfish situation, because my decision is final, for London’s sake.
You mean you won’t help me with this, Blake?
Boy, you catch on real quick, don’t you?
(Blake exit’s his office and leaves an upset Alley alone to think about what was said.)

(Meanwhile, Tanisha and Alexia suddenly arrive at Nurse Ivory Goldie’s home. They head up to the door.)
Sure you want to do this?
As sure I’ll ever be.
(Alexia knocks on the door, and Ivory answers with a smile on her face.)
I take it your Tanisha and- ?
Alexia. It’s a pleasure to meet you.
You talked to me on the phone.
Oh yes. Your voice sounds different. Please come inside so that we can talk about your father.
We are here to ask you some questions about Cody Memorial Hospital.
I don’t think I should discuss this with you girls. Unless you're here to hire me for what we discussed yesterday, I’m going to have to ask you to leave.
No, wait. Please, Ms. Goldie. We just want to know about your association with the hospital, especially with Dr. Quarr.
Well that cat’s out of the bag now.
Look, I already told you that I have nothing to say to you, and furthermore, my association with that hospital is none of your business. Now, please leave this instant.
(Ivory slams the door in their faces. Alexia, out of anger, kicks a lawn gnome.)
Damn! Certainly didn’t get far with her.
What happened to being discreet?
Yeah, well, I am not giving up that easily.
(Alexia starts to run around the back.)
What the hell are you doing?
There’s got to be a way to get in this house.
A way to get in the…are you planning on breaking in?
Certainly not going to get in now that she slammed the door on us.
SSSHHH! Keep it down, and keep a lookout.
(Alexia climbs in through the window that enters into the kitchen.)
(Tanisha stands outside, hoping that Alexia is alright.)
I hope she knows what she is doing.
(Suddenly, Tanisha sees Ivory not too far behind from Alexia and tries to get her attention.)
Oh, no! ALEXIA!!
(Ivory walks into the kitchen and gets closer to finding Alexia as Alexia hears her footsteps and begins to panic.)
