S4 Episode 7



HUGE shocks and surprises are in store for Springfield...


Mallet and Dinah's House:


RJ and Belinda walk up to the front door.

Belinda looks at him, "It's so sweet of you to walk me to the door."

He sighs, "Actually is it okay if I come in?"

She stares, "Okay... sure."

She can tell he's acting weird.

Belinda opens the door.

The two walk inside.


Dinah and Mallet are sitting in the living room.

Belinda looks at them, "What's up?"

Mallet stands, "Hey. Can we talk now?"

She shakes her head, "What's going on? Where's Anthony?"

Dinah sighs, "With your Grandmother. We really need to talk to you. And we debated a lot and realized that you would want RJ here to support you."

Belinda looks at him, "What the hell is going on?"

Mallet looks at her, "It's not some sort of conspiracy."

Belinda scoffs, "What is this? Some intervention? I'm out of here."

Dinah looks at her, "It's about your father."

Belinda stops and looks at her.

Dinah nods, "You want to know? Fine."

Belinda looks at her, "What's the catch?"

Dinah shakes her head, "There is no catch. But I don't want you to find out from a stranger. I want it to come from me. I'm the one who needs to explain it."

Belinda nods, "How do I know you're being honest?"

Dinah stares, "You'll just know. This is what you wanted since we met Belinda. You want me to tell you who your biological father is. Right?"

Belinda stares at her mother.


Cross Creek:


Bill is in the living room.

There is a knock at the door.

Bill rushes over, "Hold on."

He opens the door.


Phillip stands outside, "Is she here?"

Bill scoffs, "Hello to you too."

Phillip sighs, "Cut the crap Bill. Just tell me where she is."

Bill shakes his head, "No idea what you're talking about."

Phillip nods, "Emma... or Spencer She still hasn't come home and she's supposed to be staying with me right now. I know she's gotta be staying with you."

Bill stares, "What the hell are you talking about? She's been at your place the past week. Right?"

Phillip shakes his head.

Bill looks at him, "What? Where is she?"

Phillip looks at him, "I wasn't trying to pressure her to spend time with me. I thought she was sneaking back over here to be with you."

Bill stares, "I'm calling her right now."

Phillip looks at him, "I've tried. She's not answering."

Bill sighs, "She'll answer for me."

Bill calls her phone.

He listens as it keeps ringing.

He gets frustrated when it goes to voicemail.

He hangs up.

Phillip stares, "Where could she be staying?"

Bill looks at him, "I don't know."

Phillip looks at him, "Who are her friends now?"

Bill sighs, "I don't know!"

Phillip scoffs, "You don't know?"

Bill nods, "You don't know either!"

Phillip nods, "I have 5 kids and she's the most distant. I can't watch her 24/7."

Bill looks around, "I'm going to find her."

Bill heads for the door.

Phillip follows, "I'm coming with you."

The two fathers head out the door.




Liz is driving down the road.

Baby Clay is in the back seat.

Liz smiles at him through the mirror, "Look at my big boy, with a big smile on his face. Do you know who you look like? Do you know?"

Her phone rings.

She looks at it and grunts.

Liz answers, "Hey. I'm busy."

Her producer is on the phone.

Liz sighs, "I know.... I told you I was taking the day off. The cameras follow me everywhere I go and I'm sick and tired of it... I don't care about the stupid show anymore... fire me if you want to. I don't care.... fine I'll see what I can do. You're making me get lost in my own town. I'm getting off."

Liz's hears Baby Clay start to cry.

She looks at him, "It's okay Baby.... not you."

She drops her phone in her lap.

Liz reaches down.

She yells into it, "I'll call you later."

Liz hangs up and focuses back on the road.

She sighs, "Sorry Baby. I gotta figure out where we are...."

Liz looks at the road ahead of her.

She has flashbacks as she recognizes it.

Remy kisses her, "Buckle up."

He sticks his head and arms through the partition.

The driver turns, "What do you think you're doing?"

Remy pulls out his badge, "I'm a cop! Pull over now!"

The driver speeds up.

Remy grabs the driver by the collar, "No! I will not let Alan Spaulding hurt any more of the people I love. Not Liz, not Clay, not Mel, no one!"

Liz cries, "Stop!!!"

Down the road a taxi is coming towards them.

The limo is swerving all over the road.

The driver sees the taxi coming towards them.

He swerves out of the way and goes off the road.

Liz screams.

Liz's eyes fill with tears and her heart races.

She begins to lose control of the car.

Liz screams, "Oh no, oh no!"

Baby Clay cries louder.

Liz's car swerves off the road.


Spaulding Mansion:


Amanda walks into the Spaulding living room.

She sees David standing in there.

She smiles, "Is my niece Vicky making you wait again?"

He laughs, "I arrived earlier than we had planned. So it's not her fault. Besides I get to stick around and keep you company don't I?"

She laughs, "You assume I'm always here... I guess you're right."

He shakes his head, "It's cool. Plus I know there are certain people I won't run into here."

Amanda stares, "David Grant? Do you have mutual enemies with the Spaulding family? This is something that surprises me. And interest me."

David sighs, "Nah. I wouldn't call them enemies. At least not on my end."

She stares, "How could someone hate you?"

He looks at her, "I guess you haven't heard the rumors. Or the truth."

Amanda stares, "Dish."

He sighs, "Cyrus Foley and Marina Cooper are back in Springfield."

She looks at him, "You didn't sleep with that girl did you?"

He shakes his head, "Of course not. I was married to her Aunt Lucy."

Amanda stares, "I'm still confused."

David sighs, "A couple of years ago. A woman named Aubrey stole Marina's baby and let her think it was dead. Lucy and I found out and tried to get the baby back. But we couldn't tell Marina because we weren't sure if it was true. We got him back. But Marina had fallen into drugs and was living a dangerous life. So we decided to take care of the baby as our own until the time was right. The time never came and we fell in love with the little guy. Eventually the truth came out, everyone hated us, and our son was taken away. Our marriage ended shortly after."

Amanda stares, "Oh my God."

David looks down, "So now you know. David isn't as perfect as you thought?"

She takes his hand, "No. I was going to say I'm so sorry. It sounds like you were all victims in that scenario."

David stares at Amanda.


Bauer Home:


Ashlee is in the garage apartment.

She stares at herself in the mirror.

She fears her eating disorder is becoming more obvious.

There is a knock at her door.

She walks over, "Coming."

Ashlee opens the door.


Coop stands there, "Can I come in?"

Ashlee nods, "Of course."

Coop walks inside, "I'm sorry I just didn't know who else to talk to right now. You've always been one of my best friends. And I need someone."

She looks at him, "Of course. You can tell me anything Coop."

He stares, "I stopped by the hospital. I heard you took time off. Can you afford to do that?"

She looks around, "Uh... I just needed a break. I can't handle so much stress at once."

He nods, "That's good. Your therapist always told you to never bite off more than you could chew. Pardon the pun."

She stares, "Yeah."

He walks towards her, "You okay?"

Ashlee nods, "Of course. What's your problem?"

He sighs, "I confronted Eden and Rocky about the medication. They blew up at me. Rocky will get over it, we're brothers we have to. But Eden... I've never had her so angry at me."

Ashlee looks at him, "You're awesome Coop. If Eden can't see that then it's her problem. Maybe you should take a break. How long have you two been dating anyway?"

Coop stares, "We're married, you know that."

Ashlee shakes her head, "Yeah. Sorry I forgot. Congratulations."

Coop nods, "You're acting weird. You don't drink and you're afraid to every try drugs so what's going on with you?"

She looks at him, "Nothing."

He stares, "I know you better than anyone..."

He stares at her face.

Ashlee looks back at him.

Coop scoffs, "Oh my God... you're doing it again aren't you?"

Ashlee and Coop stare at each other.


Museum Apartment:


Jason is decorating his bedroom.

It's his anniversary with Vi.

He mutters to himself, "Where is a romantic place to stash the condoms?"

He hears the door open.

Jason hollers, "One second."

He sprays cologne on himself.

Jason rushes to the living room.

Maureen stands holding shopping bags.


Jason stares, "Oh..."

She looks at him, "Wow. Someone dressed up."

Jason sighs, "It's my anniversary today."

Maureen stares, "Oh. I'm sorry."

Jason looks at her, "I sent a text to all of the roommates. Except for Vi."

Maureen looks at her phone, "I didn't get it."

He looks at her, "I swear I sent it. It said 4 recipients, I didn't send one to Kevin because he doesn't live here anymore."

Maureen looks at him, "Maybe you sent one to the wrong person."

He looks at her, "Maybe..."

She looks around, "Do you want me to leave?"

He stares "I wouldn't say that but..."

She looks at him, "Just ask me to leave and I'll go."

Jason walks towards her, "It's your apartment too I can't just ask you to leave Maureen. But you might not like what you hear so... it's up to you."

Maureen looks at him, "Am I crazy Jason? Seriously? Do you really feel nothing for me? Or are you just rushing into a relationship with Vi to avoid your feelings for me?"

Jason and Maureen look at each other.


Bauer Home:

Coop and Ashlee stand together.

She shakes her head, "I don't know what you're talking about."

He nods, "Okay. You gonna do that? Really?"

She looks away.

He sighs, "You can't hide from me. You can't cover things up. I've been through this with you before and I know what you're like when you're starving yourself. When you're purging and over exercising."

She shakes her head, "Stop."

He stares, "Come on."

She has tears in her eyes as she nods her response.

He shakes his head, "Damn it Ashlee."

She cries, "I'm sorry."

He looks at her, "Don't apologize to me. This is not about me, it's about you! You are letting yourself down Ashlee. Why are you doing this?"

She stares, "I know more than I did then Coop trust me. I know what I'm doing and I know where my limits are."

He scoffs, "You think there is a healthy way to have an eating disorder? Do you even hear yourself!?!"

She sighs, "You don't understand."

He looks at her, "Ashlee you're becoming a doctor. Why are you doing this to yourself?"

Ashlee looks at him, "Coop I didn't mean for this to happen. I was sticking to a healthy routine and everything was great but Dalton wanted me to relax and stop counting calories."

Coop looks at her, "Does Dalton know what's going on?"

Ashlee shakes her head, "No."

He stares, "How could he not know there is something wrong with you?"

Ashlee cries, "I don't know! He doesn't want to see it! He wants me to be happy and healthy. I don't even think he realizes how much weight I've lost. But I know he'll notice if I gain any."

Coop stares, "Nothing is worth what you're doing to yourself."

Ashlee cries, "Dalton is different. I can't lose him. He's not... he's not you Coop."

Coop and Ashlee stare into each other's eyes.

Spaulding Mansion:

Amanda and David sit together on the couch.

She looks at him, "I'm so sorry David."

He looks at her, "I'm no victim."

She sighs, "Are you kidding me? You fell in love with this little boy. You were protecting him and rescuing him from a horrible life and in the end you lose him."

He sighs, "Wasn't mine to lose."

Amanda shakes her head, "Is he back in town with his parents?"

David sits back, "That's what I hear... I just can't imagine seeing him. I don't know if he would remember me. And I can't face Marina."

Amanda rubs his back, "You're a good guy David. Don't beat yourself up."

He sighs, "I will never forgive myself for what I did to that family. Or to mine."

Amanda looks at him, "Does Vicky know this?"

David nods, "Yeah. We don't talk about it much. I think she doesn't like to think of me as some guy who could do something like that ya know?"

Amanda stares, "Why would anyone try to make you feel bad for that?"

David looks at her, "Stop telling me what you think I want to hear."

She shakes her head, "I'm not. I mean it."

He smiles, "You're a good woman you know that? It's only a matter of time before some guy comes in on his horse and takes you away."

Amanda smiles, "Any idea who that might be?"

He shakes his head, "No. But I bet you can't wait to find out."

She grins, "You're right about that."

David gets up, "I need to use the bathroom. If you'll excuse me."

David walks away.

Amanda sighs, "Vicky doesn't deserve you David.... but I know I do."

She smiles.

Bauer Home:

Bill and Phillip walks up to the door.

Bill sighs, "You didn't have to come with me."

Phillip nods, "This is my best friend's home."

Bill nods, "Funny me too."

They knock on the door.


Robbie answers it, "Uh... hi."

Bill nods, "Hey Robbie. Wow I haven't seen you in a while. Is your cousin Leah home by any chance? We really need to talk to her about something."

Robbie shakes his head, "She has student council."

Phillip sighs, "Damn."

Robbie stares, "What's going on?"

Bill sighs, "Spencer is missing. And I know Leah used to be friends with her so I was hoping she would be able to tell me something. I don't know."

Phillip looks at Robbie, "Do you know who she's hanging out with?"

Robbie shakes his head, "No one. She's a loner."

Bill sighs, "Great."

Robbie grabs his phone, "I can try and call her... we've talked a few times."

The two fathers look at him.

Robbie dials her number.

He holds the phone up to his ear.

The phone picks up.

Robbie speaks, "Spencer?"

There is no answer.

All he can hear are the sound of water in the distance.

The phone finally clicks off.

Robbie turns around, "I don't know she didn't say anything..."

Phillip stares, "Could you tell where she was?"

Robbie sighs, "Uh... I have a pretty good idea."

They all look at each other.

Museum Apartment:

Maureen and Jason stand together.

Maureen looks at him, "Tell me I'm crazy."

He shakes his head, "Why are you doing this?"

Maureen sighs, "Is it just an accident that you didn't text me a warning? That you forgot to tell me that you were planning this? Come on."

He nods, "What are you suggesting?"

She sighs, "I don't know. Maybe you wanted me to catch you or maybe you just wanted to show me that you are moving on from me. Since you can't just come out and say it."

He takes her hand, "Come on."

He walks her into his bedroom.

She looks at all of the flowers.

He sighs, "Does this look like a set up to you? It's my anniversary. This is all for Vi."

Maureen looks at him, "Why are you doing this? I know you. You have fun with Vi but you could never marry someone like Vi or have kids with her."

Jason stares, "Why?"

Maureen laughs, "She's cold. She's mean. Vi is one of the most cruel people I've ever met in my life."

He stares, "Vi was there for me when the whole house turned on my brother."

She shakes her head, "You don't owe Vi anything. Less than a year ago you told me to go with my heart. You told me it was wrong to fake a relationship with someone I didn't love. You should be with someone you love."

Jason shouts, "Stop it!"

She shakes her head, "I love you Jason."

Jason stares at Maureen.

He pulls her close and kisses her.

The two begin to pull at each other's clothes.

Jason sits on the remote and accidentally turns on the music that plays loudly.


Over in the living room Vi walks inside.

She stares at the text that Jason accidentally sent her, warning about the surprise.

Vi walks in with a smile, "Jason?"

She walks over to his room and pushes the door.

She peaks and sees Maureen and Jason together.

Vi stares in shock.

She quietly shuts the door.

Her face is beat red as she walks into the living room.

She shakes her head, "Jason and Maureen? We're supposed to be sipping champagne and laying on rose pedals, instead they're screwing on my anniversary!"

Vi's face shows her rage.


Liz's eyes are closed.

She begins to feel pain coming from her forehead.

She sits up as she hears Clay crying.

Liz sighs, "I'm okay. Baby are you okay?"

The baby keeps crying.

Liz sits back, "I'm coming."

She tries to take off her seatbelt but it's stuck.

Liz realizes her seat is smashed into the wheel.

She is stuck.

Liz panics, "Oh God. Oh God no. No not here."

Liz has crashed in the same place where she and Remy crashed less than a year ago.

The baby's cry is getting louder.

Liz sobs, "Oh my God. It's okay I'm coming Baby. Oh my God!"

Liz screams.

She punches the wheel.

The glass from her windshield begins to crack.

Liz grabs the blanket and throws it over the Clay's car seat.

The window shatters on top of her.

Liz tries to shield herself and Clay.

She sees the smoke begin to fill the car.

From the back she hears footsteps approaching.

Liz shouts, "Oh God! Help! Help me!"

The person walks up next to her.

She sees the person's torso, "Oh please! Help me! Save my baby! Please!"

Aubrey Cross leans down and looks into the car.

Liz's eyes widen.

Aubrey smiles at her.

Liz's heart drops, "No. No. No!"

Aubrey stares at Liz who is trapped with her baby in the back seat.


Mallet and Dinah's:

Belinda and RJ stand in the living room with Mallet and Dinah.

RJ looks at Belinda, "Do you want me here? I'll leave if you want to be alone."

She takes his hand, "Don't go anywhere."

Mallet and Dinah look at each other.

Belinda stares, "What is it? If he's dead I don't care. I just want to know his name. But if he's alive I want to know him and maybe meet him."

Mallet sighs, "We know."

Dinah sighs, "You already have Belinda."

Belinda shakes her head, "What?"

RJ stares in confusion.

Dinah sighs, "You've known him for a long time."

She looks at her mother, "I know Mallet isn't my father."

He nods, "I know. We aren't saying that."

Dinah looks at her, "After I... murdered RJ's father Hart I was on the run and later Jeffrey found me and gave me the opportunity to take the identity of Princess Cassie, that's what you know. But before that I fell into a life of crime. I met a man who taught me the con and we got into a lot of trouble together. But when he got me pregnant I sold him down the river to get free and later ended up in prison myself."

Belinda stares, "What happened?"

Dinah nods, "He didn't know about you until he returned to Springfield years later."

Belinda stares, "What was his name?"

Dinah sighs, "You met him before you even knew I was your mother."

Belinda has tears in her eyes, "Who is he?"

Dinah nods, "Cyrus Foley."

Belinda stares, "What?"

She hears footsteps behind her.

Cyrus and Marina walks into the room.

Belinda stares in shock.

Cyrus looks at his daughter.



Belinda is outraged

Aubrey does the unthinkable

Spencer is in danger

Vi plots revenge

Ashlee confides in Coop

Ross and Blake lean on each other

Fires, drowning, explosions!

Wow that first scene was very good. A very good hook. I could really feel the drama and intensity building in the scene

This episode had lots of memories. I remember the plot with David and that baby.

I despise Ashlee; I can’t stand her one bit. She is so selfish and I don’ think I will ever forgive her for what she is doing. She doesn’t even deserve Coop at this point.

I loved Vi’s response to Jason towards the end of their first scene.

Before Amanda said she wanted David for herself, I was thinking damn these two would look good with each other. And bam here it is. These two could be hot. I love L. Kay and I can see her being a vixen. Looking forward to this plot.

Poor spencer I hope she is ok. When they was talking about the water, all’s I could think of was Diane Jenkins body turning up in the pond on Y&R.

In Liz’s first scene I wasn’t to sure if she wrecked or not. I said nah, Jay wouldn’t do that with a baby in the car. But in the second scene we learned she did wreck after all and not only that Aubrey showed up. Game on now. I can’t wait for this.

I also can’t wait to see Belinda’s reaction to the news.

This episode was GREAT. Very easy to understand and it seems you used fewer characters. A major plus. You have really turned up the heat on FTL. It’s on a roll, Jay you are on fire. I can see the Sex, the Treachery, the Envy, the Affairs, and though no Murder right now, at least yet.

Keep up the great work. And what ever you did in this episode, keep doing it. There was something very different in this episode and I can’t put my finger on it, but whatever it was you do it again and again.

So happy to be back and reading FTL. This was such an action packed episode. Loved the ending with Cyrus being Belinda's father. How the hell is Marina going to react to that?

Ashlee is still the fragile character that DK made her out to be when he brought her on the canvas. She's someone who's trying so desperately to fit the mold into today's society. Who knows? Maybe this tragedy can bring Cooplee together.

The return of Aubree. Sweet! I bet she's changed and Lizzie is just freaking out. That would be a nice twist.

Are we going to see a catfight between Vi and Maureen? Fingers crossed.

Nice episode and good luck with the Melrose Place reboot.

I am actually loving the new layout for the site. It's so easy and nice looking. I hope they don't change it again for a while.

I really struggle writing Belinda's story. It feels so cliche. But I really want to hit the real emotions instead of just the big shockers! But still revelations are fun :P Though this will most likely be hte last time we see a story quite like this on FTL.

Ashlee is very fragile. I wanted her to go back to her original personality of being a fun, self-concious but still a little dark. This is the girl who shot Alan Spaulding for being mean to her Mom. Ashlee's story is only going to get more twisted and lead to a big love square!

The Vi/Jason/Maureen story is a fun love triangle with a huge twist that compleltely changes EVERYTHING!!!! I'm so excited for it to happen. It'll be so confusing until then.

Amanda wants David and she will do ANYTHING to get him.

Spencer has a long emotional recovery ahead.

LOL I love shocking people! That scene with Liz was so much fun to write all the way up to Aubrey walking over. I miss watching scenes like that, only soaps can really give you that feeling. Aubrey's story is going to be so surprising in the next chapter.

Belinda was a rebellious child already, but now they might as well put a loaded gun in one hand and a bottle of jack in the other hahaha

And murder? Hmmm... guess you'll have to wait and see. All I can say is that the chapter finale is getting closer and just when everything builds up as high as it can go, it all comes TUMBLING DOWN.

Thanks ML and Matt for the comments. And thanks about MP. I'm loving writing t.
