Monday February 24 2003

Gus and Harley’s search for the truth leads them to Gina’s grave. Gus comes face to face with the last resting-place of the woman he now knows to be his mother. The inscription on the headstone presents yet another clue: “A Promise Kept,” leaving Harley and Gus wondering what promise and kept by whom? They learn from the Sexton in charge of the graveyard that an anonymous benefactor made sure the grave was taken care of. Gus is determined to track down Baker, the one person who may be able to fill in the missing blanks in their search. When Michelle breaks up with Bill, Danny is caught between trying to give her space while wanting desperately to sweep her off her feet. Danny agrees to give her time and vows to be there for her and Robbie. Reva recoils at being a victim and tells Josh that she is determined to use her power and the bully pulpit of her TV show to turn the tables on the stalker. Josh admires her courage but is concerned her actions will put the family in harm’s way. He wants Marah to move home as Tony proposes that she move in with him. Marah is thrilled and informs Reva and Josh, determined to stake their independence and love. Rather than hit the ceiling, Josh proposes that Tony move in and become both the Lewis’ guardian and their houseguest.

Tuesday February 25, 2003

In Chicago, Gus and Harley are at Gina’s gravesite. Gus figures out that the grave could not have been dug up as his friend Gennaro told him. They meet with Gennaro at the coffee shop and he is very reassuring but Gus knows he is lying. He refuses to be stopped and goes off to see about getting the body exhumed. Harley sees what this is doing to Gus, so she calls Buzz and Frank to come to Chicago with shovels, right away. Alan awakens on the island from his drugged stupor. Olivia believes she has trapped him there but he had a contingency plan in Ben, whom he arranged to come to the island just in case something like this happened. Lizzie visits with Beth when she returns home from school on break. Meanwhile, Olivia waits for Phillip’s return and crosses paths with Beth. She grows uneasy when she finds out Phillip was away with Beth. Alexandra goes to Company where she runs into Buzz. She tries and fails to defend herself to him and leaves. Buzz finds her outside in tears, and there, they have a more honest, open exchange. She tries to do what is right but finds herself turning into the person she despises most, Brandon. Buzz tries to tell her that it doesn’t have to be this way, but we sense that she is in way too deep and doesn’t know how to get out.

Wednesday February 26, 2003

In Chicago, Gus, annoyed that he cannot find a police report on a stolen bracelet, goes back to Springfield intent on confronting Alexandra. Harley volunteers to stay and keep working on getting answers, but really, she is waiting for Buzz and Frank to arrive to help her press for the exhumation order. The Coopers arrive and start digging but are surprised to find a trick locking mechanism that prevents the coffin from being readily opened, but when they finally get the lid off, the coffin is empty. Back in Springfield, Alexandra examines the glittering sapphire bracelet, muttering wishes that she had the nerve throw it away. Edmund arrives and tells Alexandra he won’t have to play lapdog to the Spauldings anymore and is waiting for the arrival of a diplomatic courier from San Cristobel, with a job offer from his brother. Alexandra worries Edmund will betray her since he no longer needs her but is proven wrong when he helps hide the bracelet from Gus’ sight. Gus tricks Alexandra into calling the European hospital where Roy is and gets the phone number. He makes flight reservations for that evening, but when he calls Harley, she pleads for him not to leave town yet. Later, Edmund tells Alexandra that he’s been appointed Ambassador and Alexandra confesses she recommended him for the position. Shayne returns home from school with a sweatshirt someone put in his locker that says “Dial Mom for Murder.” When a brick comes flying through their window, Reva, fed up, calls her family together to announce her plan to lure the stalker out of hiding.

Thursday February 27, 2003

Reva and Josh have their hands full as the clock ticks down on putting together a live broadcast of her show as a means of tricking the stalker into making contact. Reva meets with the Suits running Holly’s station in her absence. The proposal: Tie the city’s 911 system into the studio’s phone bank, and use the capabilities built into the system to instantly trace every call made to Reva while she’s on the air. Reva must get approval for her idea by a very reluctant and cautious group of executives. Finally, Reva and Josh emerge victorious, but it doesn’t make what she’s trying to do any more safe. Marah knows it and questions her mother. Reva admits she is scared, but she’s more scared to leave her family exposed to this anonymous stalker. Olivia is anxious to make contact with Phillip and tell him about the pregnancy, but Alex attempts to waylay her call. Phillip foils the attempt and agrees to meet with Olivia at a set time. Alex realizes she’s working with precious little time to instill doubts in Phillip’s mind. She informs him that Olivia will tell him she’s pregnant, but further, she’ll try to make Phillip believe himself, not Alan, to be the father. Alexandra makes a very convincing case for not trusting Olivia, especially after she produces proof that Olivia may have arranged for Alan to be out of town when her opportunity to talk to Phillip arrived. Phillip is dubious. A conflicted Olivia is with her brother Sam as she tentatively explains her reasons for letting Phillip believe the child is his, even if it’s not, since he would be so much a better father than Alan could ever be. Sam tells her she is just trying to rationalize to get what she wants. Later, while looking at her sonogram, Olivia feels a twinge and is rushed to the hospital. At the hospital, Phillip is talking to Rick and notices Olivia wheeled in by EMTs.

Friday February 28, 2003

Holly confronts Reva when she takes offense to being an invited guest to her own television studio. She tears up Reva’s invitation and says she is not coming to the broadcast. Holly wants Reva to worry about what she’s doing the entire time she is on the air. Later at the studio, Marah is still worried, but she trusts Tony to keep her and her mother safe. The audience begins to arrive and consists of all of Reva’s friends and family, and one addition -- Holly. She wants to be there to clear her name, and Josh warns Tony to keep an eye on her. As the broadcast draws near and Reva heads to the set, Tony notices a suspicious backpack in the studio and hurls it out the door, where it violently explodes. As she is wheeled in to the ER, Olivia fears she is losing her baby. After Rick assures her that the baby is okay, Olivia stops Phillip from calling Alan and admits that Phillip might be the father. She tells him that she considered lying to him about the paternity, but ultimately fell in love with her unborn child. Olivia makes it clear that she wants Phillip to be the father no matter who the father is. She wants Alan nowhere near her child. Phillip is moved and agrees to help Olivia raise “their” baby.
