S3 Episode 92



Decisions make huge impacts in Springfield...




Clarissa sits with Baby Adam.

Rafe stands in the back of the room.

The three remain in awkward silence.

Clarissa hears the elevator stop on their floor.

She hears footsteps coming towards her door.

Clarissa takes a deep breath.

There is a gentle knock at her door.

Clarissa looks up.

She doesn't move.

Rafe finally walks over and opens the door.

He doesn't say a word.


He walks away as Bridget and Dylan walk in with a seat to carry Adam in.

Bridget smiles, "Hey."

Clarissa nods, "Hi."

Dylan nods, "How are you two doing today?"

Clarissa nods, "Good, we're good."

Bridget looks at her, "Are you sure you're ready for this?"

Clarissa looks down.

Bridget sits down next to her, "Clarissa, if you are ever going to change your mind about this it needs to be now. If you have any second thoughts, please tell us."

Clarissa looks at Bridget and Dylan.

She shakes her head, "I love Adam. But I'm not ready to be a parent. You two are. And in the long run I know this is what's best for him."

Dylan nods, "Clarissa I promise you, this little guy is going to make us really happy and we are going to work hard to make him really happy."

Clarissa nods, "I know you will. It's just this moment. Like, how do I do this? I'm supposed to say goodbye. But how am I supposed to say goodbye to him? What am I supposed to do?"

Bridget looks at Clarissa, "You say whatever you need to say right now."

Clarissa looks at Adam, "I love you. And I'm so glad that I got to give birth to you and I hope that I can finally do something right by giving you the parents you deserve."

Bridget wipes the tears from her eyes.

She reaches out and holds Clarissa's hand.


Fraternity House:


Zach walks back into the room.

He is holding Marti's jacket.

Marti gets off her cell phone.

He looks at her, "Hey. What's up?"

She turns around and appears upset.

He shakes his head, "What's going on?"

Marti sighs, "My Mom just called me. And she doesn't want me living in Springfield anymore."

Zach scoffs, "What?"

Marti sighs, "Apparently she heard about the drama between us and Leah. And after hearing about your reputation she decides it's time to get me out of Springfield before I screw things up again."

Zach stares, "She can't do that!"

Marti sighs, "She's my mother! She can do whatever she wants."

He sighs, "But you said you can't live with her in Tulsa. You accused that guy of forcing himself on you and his family will sue you if you go back."

Marti shakes her head, "She has worked other arrangements out."

He stares, "What about us? What about school?"

She sighs, "Bridget is married to my cousin Dylan. She's principal so my family got some strings pulled so I can take my finals early and get my grades ready to transfer."

Zach stares, "How soon are you supposed to leave?"

Marti sighs, "I'm supposed to spend Thanksgiving with her. And then she's sending me to live with another cousin until she can get arrangements to move me elsewhere."

He shakes his head, "This can't be happening."

Marti sighs, "I finally get used to Springfield and now she wants to rip me away again."

Zach holds her hand, "Then don't do it. Don't let her control you."

Marti sighs, "What am I supposed to do? I'm 16."

Zach looks at her, "Maybe... you can get emancipated, and move in with me."

Marti stares at Zach.




J is walking down the hall after seeing a patient.

Michelle walks up to him, "Dr. Chamberlain."

J nods, "Dr. Bauer."

Michelle sighs, "I was hoping we could discuss some of the rumblings going on around Cedars lately that concern the two of us and our one lunch meeting."

He nods, "I love it when you talk dirty."

She shakes her head, "It isn't funny."

He nods, "I think so. But I have a sense of humor."

She sighs, "All of the interns won't shut up about us. I thought they were still obsessed with Ashlee's serenade last month from that Dalton guy."

J shakes his head, "We're two very attractive doctors. We are both single. We don't get a long very much. And we spent some time together. Can you blame them?"

Michelle sighs, "Well first off my father, my brother, my cousin, my uncle and a million other people I'm very close with work in this hospital."

He looks at her, "Well you don't have to worry about people thinking you're dating them I suppose. But you never know in Springfield."

She looks at him, "Also. I have a teenage son and a daughter who is in middle school. There father died a few years ago. Then I thought I found love again and went to marry my childhood friend Bill, who left me at the alter to go rescue his ex wife from being deported. I tried to control my feelings for Jesse but that backfired. I'm not bringing another man into my children's lives."

J sighs, "I'm not trying to date you Michelle."

She nods, "But the more time we spend together the more the rumors will circulate."

J looks at her, "And if we are avoiding each other the rumors will get worse."

She shakes her head, "Well I'm sorry I don't know what to do right now."

He looks at her, "Well I think you're reading to much into this. We're doctors. Our personal lives need to be left at the doors of this hospital."

Michelle nods, "I know that."

J sighs, "Do you? Because from where I'm standing it doesn't seem like it."

J walks away.


Bauer Garage Apartment:


Roxie looks at Johnny and Ashlee.

Ashlee stares, "Are you serious?"

Roxie nods, "Yes. I know this sounds crazy and spur of the moment. But I feel like this is something I need to do in my life. I really need this."

Johnny sighs, "I wasn't trying to guilt you into doing anything."

Roxie nods, "I know. This is my decision."

Ashlee shakes her head, "It's an incredible opportunity Roxie, and it's really selfless of you to volunteer but it's not easy work."

Roxie nods, "I know. I know this seems like another crazy idea of mine. But I really feel like I need to be helping people at this time in my life."

Johnny looks at her, "What do you want to do?"

She sighs, "I don't know. Carry water, make food, teach things, I'll do whatever I'm qualified to do over there. I'm healthy and I'm in good shape."

Ashlee looks at her, "Are you serious right now?"

Roxie nods, "Yes. I am."

Ashlee and Johnny look at each other.

Roxie walks over to her, "I love you. And I know I have a weird way of showing it sometimes. But it's because I have a lot of issues in my heart. And this will help me."

Ashlee sighs, "You're not doing this to impress me?"

Roxie shakes her head, "No. This is for me."

Ashlee smiles, "I'm really proud of you."

Ashlee hugs her.

Johnny looks at Roxie, "You think you could handle being stuck with me?"

Roxie sighs, "I need to work out my issues with you too."

Johnny nods.

Roxie looks at them, "I have a lot of things that I need closure on. And this is my way of doing it. It's time that I let go of the past and moved on with my life."

Ashlee grins, "That sounds perfect."

Roxie, Ashlee and Johnny hug.


Cross Creek:


Ava sits on the couch.

Shayne walks over to her, "You okay?"

She sighs, "Yeah. I'm fine."

He stares, "This whole kidnapping thing has us all upset. But now that Annie has been arrested it's closer to being over and wrapped up."

She shakes her head, "It's not that. Well not all that."

He nods, "Then what is it?"

Ava sighs, "The holidays are always tough. Every Thanksgiving or Christmas that I spend with HB a part from me. It's never easy for me."

Shayne nods, "I'm sorry."

She sighs, "I brought it on myself. I did so many horrible things when I was with Bill. I was just so angry and out of control all the time."

He sighs, "But you got help in Ravenwood."

She nods, "I got help from you."

Shayne smiles, "You're a strong woman."

Ava shakes her head, "I don't know about that. I wasn't good enough of a mother otherwise I would still have my son with me wouldn't I?"

Shayne looks at her, "You made mistakes when you had HB."

She sighs, "They all could have been avoided."

He nods, "But you weren't healthy. Now you are. Ava I've seen you grow so much in the time that I've known you. I know you're going to be a great Mom."

She sighs, "If I ever get the chance."

Ava holds a picture of Baby HB.

It's been years since she last saw him.

Shayne puts his arm around her.


Police Station:


Annie sits in her cell.

She looks up at the ceiling.

She continues tapping her feet.

Annie's face remains blank.

One of the guards hollers, "Dutton, you got a visitor!"

Annie sits up.

Marah walks in.

Annie stares, "Hello Marah."

Marah smirks, "I bet you didn't think I'd have the guts to show my face here did you?"

Annie nods, "I knew you would. You may be surprised to hear this but I know you a lot better than you think I do. Don't forget that."

Marah laughs, "You weren't prepared for this."

Annie nods, "You're right. I underestimated you. I thought you had more heart like your father. But I was clearly wrong about that one."

Marah stares, "You think I'm more like you?"

Annie sighs, "For your sake I hope so. Because you're going to need to be to face what I have coming for you."

Marah shakes her head, "I'm not worried."

Annie grins, "You should be."

Marah stares, "You're pretty confident for a woman behind bars. There is a not a doubt in anyone's mind that you are responsible for Ava's kidnapping."

Annie nods, "But I know the truth."

Marah shakes her head, "You haven't sold me out yet."

Annie nods, "I'm aware."

Marah stares, "Why not? Why haven't I been questioned?"

Annie laughs, "Oh Marah. I have you right where I want you."

Annie and Marah stare at each other.



Reva Bend:


Roxie sits in Reva's living room with her.

Reva looks at her, "You're serious about this?"

Roxie nods, "Yeah."

Reva stares.

Roxie sighs, "I know this is all happening really fast. But I need to do this for myself. It's important to me that I make my life mean something."

Reva sighs, "You can't do that in Springfield?"

Roxie looks at her, "Reva."

Reva shakes her head, "I love charity work. I do a lot for my cancer charities and it is one of the most fulfilling experiences I have in my life."

Roxie sighs, "And that's you're thing, and I am so happy that you found it. But I need to find something for me, something that gives me meaning."

Reva nods, "I guess I can understand that."

Roxie holds her hand, "I'm going to miss you."

Reva has tears in her eyes, "Cassie left for San Cristobal. Now you're leaving the country too. What am I supposed to do without my little sisters?"

Roxie grins, "You have Noah. 3 of your four kids are living in Springfield right now. You've got a lot of great things for you in Springfield."

Reva smiles, "I know."

Roxie sighs, "What do you think Mama would say?"

Reva grins, "She'd tell me to suck it up. My sister is doing something amazing and I should be proud of her. She'd do the same for me."

Roxie smiles, "That sounds like Mama.

Reva smiles, "I'm always going to be your big sister so you need to check in with me, a lot. And when you get back we are going to set up a sister date with you me and Cassie. No buts."

Roxie grins, "That would be great."

Reva grins, "I love you."

Roxie nods, "I love you too."

The two sisters hug.


J is reading some files.

Michelle walks over, "Hey."

He nods, "Dr. Bauer."

She sighs, "I'm sorry that I was being rude. I know you didn't start the rumors or anything so I shouldn't be blaming you. I'm over reacting anyway."

He nods, "I know you are."

She looks at him, "I'm trying to apologize."

He sighs, "I know."

She shakes her head, "I'll chalk it up to holiday stress. I've got a lot do for Thanksgiving this year. But I'm sure you know what that's like."

He shakes his head, "Not really."

She stares, "What are you doing for Thanksgiving?"

He shakes his head, "Working mostly. Then probably going to a bar or something."

She stares, "What about your family?"

He sighs, "I'm fine."

She looks at him, "But it's Thanksgiving."

He looks at her, "It's a silly holiday that people use as an excuse to over eat and be completely lazy. It's a joke of a day in my opinion."

She smiles, "But it's also a great time for bonding and being grateful."

He sighs, "You really buy into that?"

She nods, "I do."

He turns away, "You're call."

She sighs, "I know you'll probably laugh at this proposal. But why don't you come over to my family's house for Thanksgiving. It would be really fun."

He looks at her, "Seriously?"

She nods, "Just think about it. The offer is on the table. You're a friend of the family."

Michelle walks away.

J stares at her.

Fraternity House:

Marti sits with Zach.

Zach looks at her, "What do you think?"

She sighs, "I can't give up on my life."

He sighs, "So you're giving up on us?"

She shakes her head, "It's not like that!"

He gets up, "What are we supposed to do?"

She stares, "We can try to make the long distance thing work. But my Mom doesn't want me to have a boyfriend after what happened so it would have to be a secret."

Zach turns away, "Great."

Marti stares, "What was your plan? I run away from home?"

He sighs, "You could get emancipated and then... maybe we could get married."

She scoffs, "Married? We've been dating for a month."

He nods, "I know. Not married for real. But I could get my trust fund early if I am married."

She shakes her head, "No."

He scoffs, "So what? You just leave me now?"

She cries, "What choice do I have Zach?"

He looks at her, "Where are you going anyway?"

She nods, "I'm going to live with my cousin Mindy. She lives in New York."

He shakes his head, "New York?"

Marti nods, "My mom thinks this is best for me."

Zach looks at her, "She's ruining our lives."

Marti walks over to him, "We'll figure something out okay."

He looks at her, "I'm not losing you."

Marti sighs, "We should have expected that people would stop at nothing to keep a Lewis and a Spaulding from being together."

Zach holds her hand.

The two kiss.

Cross Creek:

Ava stares at the picture of Baby HB.

Shayne still has his arm around her.

She smiles, "Look at him."

He nods, "He's a beautiful baby. He looks like his Mom."

She shakes her head, "He's not a baby anymore."

Shayne nods, "A part of me thought Bill and Olivia would have come back to Springfield eventually, once they realized it was safer now."

Ava sighs, "I was in Ravenwood when they left. I probably scared the crap out of Bill last time I saw him. I said some horrible things."

Shayne stares at her.

Ava shakes her head, "I basically threatened his life if I ever saw his face again. What the hell was I thinking? Was I that crazy?"

Shayne sighs, "You were emotionally devastated. You were locked away and you didn't understand why. You had little contact with your own son."

Ava starts to cry, "I blew my chances at being his mother."

Shayne looks at her, "But you're a good person now."

Ava sighs, "Too little too late right?"

Shayne shakes his head, "Olivia has her own issues right now. That's why Emma came back to Springfield to live for now. Maybe Bill and Olivia will come back soon."

She looks at him, "I tell myself that everyday when I wake up. I hope that maybe today I'll walk out the door and see Bill walking up to me with my son. But so far that has never happened."

Shayne sighs, "I'm sorry."

Shayne holds Ava close.

Police Station:

Annie is inside of her cell.

Marah stares at her from the outside.

Annie stares, "You must feel on top of the world right now. You have everything you want. Edmund, your family, your career, power. And no one ever has to know what a bitch you really are."

Marah shakes her head, "As long as I get what I want who cares? I spent years trying to please other people and look where it got me. I learned a lot of things from your accomplishments Annie. But I learned even more from your mistakes. So I guess I'm grateful for that."

Annie smiles, "And I'm grateful that I know you better than you know yourself. You are nothing but a little clone of me right now. It's time someone took you down a peg."

Marah grins, "You're so bitter and jealous. Because you know that I actually might have a shot at a happy life, something you never could achieve."

Annie shakes her head, "I was close to having that again. But I threw it all away to help you and you stabbed me in the back Marah."

Marah stares, "You stabbed me first."

Annie sighs, "I love you. I was doing what was best for you."

Marah scoffs, "You are really messed up Annie."

Annie nods, "Maybe so. But I'm smart, you have give me that."

Marah looks at her, "Of course."

Annie sighs, "You may be on top of the world right now. But don't be so sure of yourself. You won that small battle Marah, but I'm going to win the war."

Marah stares, "We're in a war now?"

Annie nods, "You declared war the second you betrayed me."

Marah smirks, "You want a war? Bring it on."

Annie grins, "You know me well. So you have to be sure that this little stuff we've done, it's just the beginning. I'm coming after you Marah. And trust me, the wrath of Annie Dutton is nothing to be taken lightly. Just ask your mother."

Marah nods, "Have a happy Thanksgiving behind bars."

Marah walks out of the area.

Annie smiles.


Clarissa is standing with Adam.

She and Bridget are holding him together.

They look into each other's eyes.

Dylan holds the bag of Adam's things.

Clarissa looks at him, "I know the terms of our open adoption... and I know that if you two ever choose to move that you may. And whatever you decided I'm going to have to be okay with."

Bridget nods, "I will love him like he is my own but he will always be your Baby too."

Clarissa smiles.

Bridget sighs, "I will make sure he understands who you are and what you have given him and what you have given all of us. He'll never forget that."

Clarissa has tears in her eyes, "Just make sure that he always knows I love him and I could never forget him."

Bridget nods, "Of course."

Clarissa sighs, "And he had a lot of people who really cared about him. They will always care about him no matter what happens in the future."

Rafe has to turn away.

Bridget smiles, "Of course."

Clarissa looks down, "I thought giving birth was the hard part. But this is the hardest thing I will ever have to do. I know that now."

Bridget looks at her.

Clarissa sighs, "Just promise me one thing, that no matter what he will always know that he is loved and that he is special. I don't want him to feel like he's less than that."

Bridget smiles, "I will tell him every single day how special he is, how much we love him, and how amazing of a person he truly is."

Clarissa takes a deep breath.

Bridget stares, "You ready?"

Clarissa nods.

She pulls her arms out and lets Adam rest in Bridget's arms.

Bridget holds him close.

Dylan walks over and puts his arm around them.

She looks at Clarissa through her tears, "Thank you."

Clarissa nods, "You too. Goodbye Adam."

Dylan smiles, "Bye."

Bridget and Dylan turn and walk out the door.

They shut it behind them.

Clarissa stares at the door as she sobs.

She sighs, "Tell me I did the right thing Rafe. I don't care if you believe it or not just please tell me I did the right thing."

Rafe walks up behind her and puts his arms around her.

She sobs, "Oh my God."

She keeps staring at the door, a small part of her hopes they'll come back.

But they don't.

Clarissa cries, "I just wasn't ready."

Clarissa sobs in Rafe's arms.


Thanksgiving is celebrated!

The Marlers worry about each other

The Lewis family gets a huge surprise

The Reardons join together

The Spauldings get through the holiday

The Bauers invite many guests

Oh crap Charissa isn't ready! I truly thought what she was doing was such a selfless act. It really made me like her more.

Loved the confrontation between Annie and Marah. Marah really has amped up the vixen role and it's about time.

I never liked Ava on GL. I don't know why. Maybe it's because she always battled with Lizzie.

Very good ep. I can see the need to trim the cast down a bit.

I agree with Matt. What Clarissa was doing seems selfless, well to a certain extent. She wasn't ready to be a mother and kept baby Adam to please Rafe. I just hope this doesn't play out to be the whole Peter fiasco.

I love the Anne and Marah scenes. Marah seems to have lost that pleasing luster that she had as a small child. She better be careful though. Marah musn't forget that Anne has a way of always landing on her feet with even more to her disposal.

Thank you guys. Sorry it took me so long to respond but FTL is back on track!!!

Yes, Bridget and Dylan are probably thinking about Peter as well. The situation is somewhat similar. But Clarissa was no where near ready to be a mother.

The Thanksgiving episodes are about to be posted which will give us some warm Springfield moments. And then some big cliffhangers before the movie!!!
