S3 Episode 63



Summer heat and drama rise in Springfield...




Guillespie is walking through the woods.

He got a message from Stephanie to meet him here.

He is looking around.

He calls out her name, "Steph?"


Stephanie comes walking over.

Her bruises are still visible.

He sighs, "Hey... you seem to be feeling better."

She nods, "A little."

He looks at her, "I know last night when we talked you were still nervous. But look at me. I'm not armed. I'm not in a bad mood. You just have to remember not to push me when I'm on edge."

He puts his hand on her face.

Stephanie looks into his eyes.


Susan walks over, "And what if she does? Are you going to smack her around some more?"

He turns to her, "What the hell are you doing here?"

Susan sighs, "We are not going to let you do this anymore. We have had enough of you."

He turns to Stephanie, "What is all this 'we' crap?"

Stephanie sighs, "I... I'm tired of being afraid of you. I can't do this anymore."

He scoffs, "So you bring this trash to do what?"

Stephanie sighs, "I didn't think I could handle this on my own."

He laughs, "Wow, you're even more pathetic than I thought. What did you tell her? Did you tell her I beat you up or something? Don't you think you're over reacting a little?"

Susan looks at her, "Don't let him get in your head."

He turns to her, "Shut your mouth!"

Susan shakes her head, "No Guillespie. You shut yours. We are done with you and Springfield is done with you. I'm calling the shots now. I brought you here and now I'm taking you out."

Guillespie stares at the two of them.


Bauer Home:


Mel, Rick and Harley are in the kitchen.

Mel sighs, "Phillip isn't coming?"

Harley shakes her head, "He is visiting with Lizzie at your parent's house. It's just me for now."

Rick looks at her, "I don't know what the hell is wrong with your son Harley. But if he sent that picture to his friends-"

Harley looks at him, "Would you stop it Rick! Leah told you she doesn't think Zach would do that. And Zach told me he didn't."

Rick nods, "And we just believe them? Leah has never had anything like this happen before she got with your son."

Mel looks at him, "Stop Rick. Stop trying to find a way to take the blame off Leah. We saw the picture. She knew what she was doing. She made a terrible mistake and is paying for it the hard way."

Upstairs in her bedroom.


Leah is crying on her bed.

Her phone is turned off and thrown under her bed.

She hears a knocking at her window.


Zach is there.

She opens it, "What are you doing here?"

He sighs, "I need to talk to you. But I am not about to deal with your parents. Can you let me in?"

Leah helps him in.

Zach sighs, "I have no idea what happened."

Leah cries, "What happened?!? My naked picture is being sent around by everyone in Springfield! Complete strangers are seeing my body! Everyone, my friends, the people who hate me! Everyone! Even my parents saw the picture Zach. Jude won't even look at me!"

Zach looks at her, "I swear! I didn't show it to anyone."

She cries, "Then how did this happen? My life is ruined!"

Leah sits back on her bed and sobs.




Marah is walking to her office.

She stops when she sees the door open to Ava's office.

She slowly walks in.

Marah almost expects to see Ava there working.


But it is Edmund sitting at her desk.

Marah stares, "What are you doing?"

He looks up, "Oh I'm sorry. I just thought I'd come here and maybe something would give me a clue."

Marah sighs, "Edmund you're driving yourself crazy."

Edmund nods, "I don't know what to do. They still haven't found her. The Lewises said they even got a message from Bill and he told them Ava hasn't contacted them."

Marah nods, "Wow."

He shakes his head, "It's almost like she disappeared. Like she just vanished or something."

Marah looks at him, "Maybe that's what she wanted. Maybe she just wanted a fresh start."

He looks at her, "Maybe. Marah I'm sorry. I haven't been there for you much lately. I know you were not close with Ava. But I appreciate that you've been there for me."

She shakes her head, "It's not a big deal."

He nods, "Yes it is. You could have gloated and danced in celebration. But you didn't. It shows what a great person you are."

Marah shakes her head, "I'm not that great."

He smiles, "You are. I'm very lucky to have you in my life."

Edmund kisses Marah.

Her guilt is beginning to consume her.




Ross and Blake sit at table.

Clarissa is walking over.

The three have agreed to meet.

Ross stands up, "It's so great to see you."

Clarissa hugs him, "Yeah you too."

Blake goes to hug her but Clarissa sits down.

Ross looks at her, "I can't believe how far a long you are. I expected you to be much bigger."

Clarissa nods, "Trust me I am. These maternity clothes are very flattering. They are nicer than my old clothes."

Blake looks at her, "How do you afford all of this? Did you get a job or something?"

Ross sighs, "Clarissa you shouldn't be working right now. You should be resting and getting ready for the big day."

Clarissa laughs, "Trust me I have been one lazy bitch."

Blake looks at her, "Language."

Clarissa sighs, "Sorry. I just mean that I've been resting and everything. Rafe is taking care of my expenses. He is a really good friend. I don't know how I'll repay him."

Ross and Blake look at each other.

Ross nods, "That's what we were worried about as well."

Clarissa is confused, "What are you talking about?"

Ross sighs, "It seems very generous that Rafe is doing all of this for you and the baby. But these are not his responsibilities. He is not the father of the baby."

Clarissa nods, "I know that. But he's my friend. It's hard to explain."

Blake nods, "He's a Spaulding. They don't give anything without expecting something in return."

Clarissa scoffs, "He's Natalia's son. He didn't even know the Spauldings until he was older."

Blake sighs, "We know that family better than you do. Besides, you should be with your family."

Clarissa sighs, "Wow you really had me fooled. I thought we would just have a conversation."

Ross nods, "We are. Your mother and I are putting aside our differences for you. You are still our daughter. Please, consider moving out of Rafe's place before you get in over your head."

Clarissa is offended by her parents.




Jesse parks his car.

Drew is in the passenger's seat.

He looks at her, "How are those heightened senses?"

Drew sighs, "I can smell how filthy the air is in Springfield. And of course I can feel how hot it is."

He grins, "That's the spirit."

She sighs, "I know you can't tell because I have these sunglasses on but I'm rolling my eyes right now."

He looks at her, "You got your walking stick?"

She holds it up unenthusiastically.

He grins, "Great."

Jesse gets out of the car.

She hears him shut his door and walk around the car to hers.

She feels the door open up next to her.

He clears his throat, "Give me your hand."

She reaches her hand out.

He helps her step out of the car.

She hears him shut the door behind her.

He looks at her, "Gonna use your stick?"

She puts it to the ground.

Drew throws out her sarcasm, "Wow I can't believe it. This changes everything. I'm so happy."

He laughs, "Lucky for you I'm patient."

She sighs, "So tell me Jesse. How many people are staring at the blind chick right now?"

He looks around, "No one."

She scoffs, "Liar."

He nods, "I'm serious."

She shakes her head, "Okay I really can't handle this. How am I supposed to walk with you if I can't even trust you. Be honest with me for once Jesse."

Jesse looks around at the people watching them.


Guillespie is standing between Stephanie and Susan.

Susan looks at him, "I've contacted some people. Some people who have been looking for you."

He laughs, "Cops?"

She shakes her head, "No. The opposite. People you owe money too. People who would kill to find you."

He shakes his head, "You're bluffing."

Susan nods, "The last place they would expect is Springfield. The town where you murdered a girl."

He turns to Stephanie, "You're going to let her talk to me like this?"

Stephanie stares.

He looks at her, "Answer me!"

Susan scoffs, "See this is how you treat her! You are still a pathetic bastard who wouldn't know love if it bit him in the ass!"

He turns to her, "I told you to shut up! I loved you and you know it Susan! I wanted to be with you forever. But now I love Stephanie and I know she feels the same."

He looks at her.

He nods, "Say it Stephanie."

Susan looks at her.

Guillespie smiles, "How long have you two been planning this?"

Susan looks at him, "Don't worry about it."

He laughs, "Well I hope it wasn't before last night. Because last night Stephanie didn't seem to mad at me."

Susan looks at Stephanie, "What is he talking about?"

Stephanie shakes her head, "Nothing."

He scoffs, "We make love last night and it meant nothing?"

A furious Susan stares at Stephanie.



Clarissa is at the table with her parents.

She gets up, "I can't believe you two."

Ross sighs, "Please don't do this Clarissa."

She looks at him, "How dare you? You check out of my life and then check back in and expect to have a say in anything?"

He looks down.

Clarissa turns to Blake, "And you! You have been nothing but an embarrassment and a disappointment since he left! You are one of the worst role models that I know."

Blake sighs, "Maybe so. But I love you. You can't deny that. And so does your father."

Ross looks at her, "Clarissa in a few weeks you will have that baby and you will understand. Please don't wait that long before you come to your senses about this."

Clarissa stares at them.


Rafe walks over, "Couldn't help but over hear."

Blake looks at him, "What are you doing here?"

Clarissa sighs, "I texted him to pick me up."

Rafe nods, "I'm sorry I told you to come here. I thought you parents had good intentions."

Clarissa looks at him, "That's right. I wanted to skip it but Rafe told me I should meet with you."

Ross sighs, "I'm sorry we were not trying to insult Rafe."

Clarissa shakes her head, "No you insulted me. But I'll have the last laugh. I am going to be a better parent than either of you. And you'll be lucky if this baby knows either of you."

Clarissa storms off with Rafe.


Jesse and Drew stand in the middle of the park.

She sighs, "Maybe you should take me home."

He shakes his head, "You said you wanted to get outdoors. I'm trying to do that for you."

She nods, "Then be honest. Tell me how many people are staring right now. Be honest."

He looks around, "An old man on a bench. A couple jogging. And two women with their dogs."

Drew nods, "Okay. Where are the two women with dogs?"

He sighs, "Almost exactly to your left. About 2 yards away."

Drew turns to her left.

She extends her arm.

Drew flips off the two women.

Jesse begins laughing hysterically.

He pulls her arm down, "Stop!"

She nods, "What are they doing?"

He laughs, "They walked away. I think you freaked them out."

Drew nods, "Good. Screw them."

He smiles, "You are something else Drew Jacobs."

She sighs, "You ready to start walking?"

He nods, "If you are."

She uses her stick to feel around.

The path seems clear.

She starts walking on the side walk.

He is right behind her.

She clears her throat, "Let me do this."

He nods, "You sure?"

She sighs, "You can check out my ass as I walk away."

He laughs, "You coming back?"

She nods, "Of course I'll come back to you."

Drew keeps walking down the sidewalk.

Jesse watches.

She turns and starts walking back.

She feels her stick bump his foot.

She smiles at Jesse.


Susan stares at Stephanie and Guillespie.

She shakes her head, "Are you serious? Stephanie did you sleep with him again? Really?"

Stephanie sighs, "I am so sorry Susan. I didn't plan it. But he apologized for everything. He really felt bad."

He nods, "You can get in her head Susan. But you can't stay there. Sorry to break it to you."

Susan nods, "But apparently you can. You have totally messed this girl up in the head."

Stephanie shakes her head, "No."

Susan nods, "Thank God I wasn't that foolish."

Stephanie looks at her, "Shut up."

Susan sighs, "So why are we here? What was the point in coming here Stephanie? What?"

Stephanie looks down, "I don't know."

Guillespie walks over to Stephanie, "You don't want to do this."

Susan looks at her, "So what? Are you done? You going to go back to him all over again?"

Stephanie sighs, "I over reacted. I need to work on things with Guillespie on my own."

Susan scoffs, "Wow. You freaks deserve each other. You know what, stay with him! I don't care! Let him beat the crap out of you! Hey, maybe let him kill you next time."

Susan starts walking back up the hill.

Guillespie hollers, "Nosy Bitch!"

Stephanie walks up behind him, "I am so sorry."

She puts her hand on his back.

A gun falls out of his jacket.

She stares at it.

He turns, "I knew I couldn't trust you."

She looks down, "Why did you bring that?"

He picks it up, "Don't worry."

He throws it across the woods.

She sighs, "I think we should go-"

He smacks her across the face.

He scoffs, "You made a big mistake."

She holds her cheek.

Bauer Home:

Harley, Rick and Mel are in the kitchen still.

Harley sighs, "So have you guys talked to the parents of these kids to try and stop the message from spreading?"

Mel shakes her head, "Leah begged us not to. And I'm not sure what good it will do."

Rick sighs, "I have never heard of 'sexting'. But apparently it's all the rage with kids now."

Harley sighs, "Believe me I'm not thrilled that Zach was participating. But he's 18."

Mel nods, "Well Leah is 16."

Rick sighs, "Exactly! It's illegal for Zach to get those pictures!"

Harley nods, "Actually you're right. It's illegal for anyone no matter what age. This isn't just some embarrassing photo. Everyone involved in this is looking at a child pornography case."

Mel and Rick look at each other.

Upstairs in Leah's bedroom.

Zach puts his arm around Leah.

Leah pulls away, "Don't touch me."

He scoffs, "Do you really think I did this?"

Leah looks at him, "What am I supposed to believe? Everyone warned me about you! Clarissa, Belinda, James-"

Zach stands up, "James."

Leah stares, "What?"

Zach sighs, "James borrowed my phone the other day."

Leah shakes her head, "James wouldn't do this."

He nods, "Are you sure? Because right now I would bet good money that James is behind all of this."

Leah stares at Zach.


Edmund and Marah walk down the hallway.

They walk into the lobby.

He sighs, "I'm sorry I haven't been very good company lately."

She shakes her head, "Don't worry about it."

He nods, "How about I take you out to dinner tonight? I'll pick something great."

She smiles, "I'd love that."

He grins, "You deserve it."

Edmund kisses her before he leaves.

Marah later goes into the security room.

She sneaks back to the small hidden screen.

Marah promised Annie that she would not check it again.

But she is worried about Ava.

Marah walks over and presses the on button.

Nothing happens.

She keeps pressing.

She looks behind to see it's been disconnected.

Marah begins to worry.

Minutes later Marah is entering the basement.

She sneaks into the secret room.

Marah slowly opens the door.

She is shocked to see it is now filled with old furniture.

Marah looks around in shock.

Ava is no where to be seen.


Stephanie has tears in her eyes as she holds her face.

Guillespie stares, "You betrayed me."

She shakes her head, "No. No I'm so sorry! I am so sorry! Please forgive me! I didn't-"

He puts his hands on her throat, "You will never cross me again."

He is choking her.

Stephanie tries to push him away.

Her face is turning blue.

He squeezes tight.

Susan comes running down the hill.

She sees what he's doing.

In an instant she grabs a rock and jumps on Guillespie back.

She begins beating him with the rock, "Get off of her! Let go of her!"

He releases Stephanie who collapses.

He kicks Susan in the stomach and she flies back into a tree and falls.

Guillespie runs over and climbs on top of Susan.

Susan pushes him and tries to get him off.

He yells, "I always loved you Susan!"

He starts ripping at her pants while undoing his.

She screams and kicks in horror.

Susan is in tears as she screams for help.

She is nearly deafened by her own screams.

Suddenly she feels Guillespie fall on top of her.

A panicked Susan pulls herself out from under him.

She looks and sees he isn't moving.

She sees that her clothes are soaked in his blood.

Susan looks up.

Just a few feet away is Stephanie with her arms extended... holding the smoking gun.


Susan and Stephanie panic!

Marah confronts Annie

Clarissa questions Rafe

James becomes the suspect

Michelle worries for Jesse
