Christyblogentry-14971-0-94888400-1363306069_th is with Scooter…

Christy: Hey…

Scooter: Hey there beautiful.

Christy: I was wondering what was on the news tonight.

Scooter: Really?

Christy: Yes. In fact, we should go to your room.

Scooter smiles.



Grant blogentry-14971-0-91842000-1363306093_thopens the door, and Carlyblogentry-14971-0-82142800-1363306104_th walks in with a glass of wine, and a limo driver at the door.

Carly: Your limo was really nice. Why am I even here? I thought I was going to be taken to the station.

Grant: There are some things you need to know. Some things I need to warn you about.

Carly (taking a swig of her wine): And what could THAT be?

Grant: What else? Your husband.

Carly: So you brought me all the way over here, to warn me about Jack?

Grant: You might not like what you see when you get to the precinct.

Carly: Well I don’t like the long hours he’s been working.

Grant: That’s not all you’ll find.



Paulinablogentry-14971-0-83928600-1363306137_th walks into Jack’sblogentry-14971-0-19735600-1363306152_th office with a plastic bowl…

Jack: Hey. What’s that?

Paulina: Thought I’d make you something. I know you’re working hard on the Reginald Love case.

Jack: I have been. Thanks.

Paulina: You’re welcome. I bet Grant had his hand in this somehow.

Jack: Now you know I can’t discuss police business with you, but no…Grant had nothing to do with it.



Cassblogentry-14971-0-57332600-1363306186_th and Stacey blogentry-14971-0-78747700-1363306202_thare sitting on the living room couch. Cass comes in with a tray of tea and sets it on the coffee table.

Stacey: Hmm why aren’t you going out with Frankie tonight?

Cass: Frankie’s busy. Besides there’s no rush, and I don’t want to smother her.

Stacey: Frankie’s the love of your life. You should try to nail it down.

Cass: You make her sound like something I should hammer.

Stacey: You know what I mean come on. It’s obvious you two still love each other. You don’t want to miss out on love.

Cass: Oooooh no we’re definitely not talking about ME this time. What love did you miss out on? I mean you and Derek spent years together. Oh no…Stace…please tell me you’re not in love with Jake McKinnon.



Donnablogentry-14971-0-56442400-1363306239_th opens the door…and there stands Toni Burrellblogentry-14971-0-60687000-1363306254_th

Toni: Donna. Just the person I wanted to see. May we talk for a minute?

Donna: I actually was headed out. Can we do this another time?

Toni: Oh where are you headed?

Donna: I’m going to Tyrone and Marley’s to check on her and the baby.

Toni: Well we can stop at the station on the way.

Donna: What do you want Toni?

Toni: I just need to ask you some questions. I need you to account for your whereabouts the night your father was murdered.




Part 2

Cass: He’s a married man.

Stacey: Thanks Cass. I didn’t know that.

Cass: You only spent a few weeks with him in the early 90s and you fell in love?

Stacey: He gave me something that I’ve always wanted.

Cass: Lindsay.

Stacey: She’s my miracle baby. I love with all of my heart. Losing Megan was the most heartbreaking thing I probably ever experienced, but Lindsay filled that hole, and Jake gave her to me. I will do anything to protect her.

Cass: You fell in love with an amnesiac. He didn’t know who he was, and you were rebounding. Weren’t you and Derek broken up?

Stacey: I know how I feel Cass. . I had gone back to Derek, thinking HE was the love of my life but in the back of my mind, I always wondered what life would have been like if Jake and I raised Lindsay together.

Cass: This doesn’t make any sense. Why are you so hell bent on Jake not knowing that Lindsay is his daughter?

Stacey: Because he doesn’t remember any of it. He HAS a family, and even though I thought she couldn’t make anyone happy, he seems really great with Vicky. I don’t want to take that from him, and I don’t want Lindsay to either.

Stacey gets a text that reads “I’ve landed safely.”

Cass: Who was that?

Stacey: That was Lindsay. Her plane landed in L.A.

Cass: She went back to L.A.

Stacey: I told her that Derek was in trouble.

Cass: Is he alright?

Stacey: He’s…fine.

Cass: Stacey? You lied to get Lindsay to leave town? Boy you’re just turning up the heat aren’t you. There’s no telling what she’s gonna do when she finds out you lied.

Cass responds to a knock on the door, and the guy at the door gives him an envelope. Cass reads it and is horrified.

Stacey: What’s that?

Cass: It’s a notification. It’s about Christy Carson. Damn time flies.

Stacey: That’s the woman who tried to poison you right?

Cass: Her parole hearing is coming up.


Scooter and Christy are in Scooter’s room…

Christy: Did I tell you how handsome you are?

Scooter: Me? Thank you.

Christy: Why don’t you go get us something to drink? I’m pretty thirsty.

Scooter: Okay I’ll…I’ll get us some water.

Scooter leaves…and Christy says “Let’s find that proof that Grant wants.”


Paulina: That is a shock.

Jack: Yeah but there was no evidence to indicate that Grant killed Reginald.

Paulina: I don’t even know what I was thinking. He hadn’t changed at all. This is the same man who had me hooked on diet pills, and nearly killed Dante and me when he burned our house down.

Jack: At least you see for what he is now.

Paulina: Actually that’s why I came down here.

Jack (smiling): So you didn’t come to feed me?

Paulina: I would never let you starve but…I have to tell you something. I overheard Grant talking to your wife.

Jack: What?

Carly shows up…

Carly: That’s right G-Man.


Donna: Am I gonna need my attorney?

Toni: Why would you need an attorney?

Donna: You’ve come into my home basically accusing me of murder.

Toni: Well you had plenty of motive…AND opportunity. The surveillance camera showed that you went to the room twice.

Donna: I’m glad he’s dead. He sure had it coming.

Toni: Are you saying you’re the one who gave him what you thought he deserved?

Suddenly Toni gets and reads a text that shocks her. It says “It wasn’t Donna…go to the Corys.”

Toni: Who sent this?

Donna: Sent what?

Toni: I gotta head to the station. We’re not done.

Donna follows Toni and shuts the front door. As Donna walks away, someone rings the doorbell.

Donna (walking to the door): I’m not answering anymore questions without my lawyer present!

Donna opens the door, and finds Michaelblogentry-14971-0-84033200-1363306471_th staring back at her.

Donna: My God! Can’t be!

Meanwhile, “Janice” blogentry-14971-0-40862800-1363306846_this standing next to a dumpster with a disposable cell phone, with a long, dark-haired wig, and a matchbook. She places the phone in her purse, lights the wig, and tosses the burning hair in the dumpster. She smiles as she watches it burn.

Lots of cliffhangers in this!!

I like the way Cass and Stacey argue. It's very sibling-like.
